Farm or Town.
A young subscriber who is
starting out for himself and has
rented about twenty acres of land
asks us two questions: what to
put on this land to get the best
results, or whether we would ad
vise a rouncr man to stay on the
farm or get a job by the month
in the city..
Answering the first question,
if the land is good corn land, he
would probably make quite as
much clear money by putting
this twenty acres of land in corn
as he would in any other way,
certainly if his lease is for but
one year, mis wiu give aim
time to do a good deal of work
for other people, for no doubt
he will be in demand when not
busy with his corn. If he had a
lease for a term of years and the
land needed building up, that
would be a different matter.
Now as to whether the young
man should stick to the farm or
go to town, that depends on the
young man. If he has a taste
for farming, and is willing to
study and observe and get infor
mation from all possible sources,
and then put it in practice, we
would say he had better stay on
the farm. If he is not this kind
of a young man, then he had
better go to town and engage in
some business for which he has
a decided taste.
The probability is, hoivever,
that when the young man goes
to town, unlets he is qualified
for some business or profession,
or has a strong antitude for some
special work, he will get about
enough pay as a street car con
ductor or motorman, or a band
about a livery stable, or
hj !
working on the streets, to pay
his expenses, and sometimes ;
barely that. Or he might get a
job in a store; first to sweep out
and straighten up. By and by
he might run errands, might be
a shipping clerk, and after a
while have an opportunity to
sell things. He might possibly
get to be a bookkeeper, with the
hone that in time he might be
come a partner in the business
This sometimes occurs; but very
seldom unless he or his friends
have money to put in the busi
ness, which is not at all likely
with a Touner mau who goes to
town with nothing but his bare
hands. He might get to run
errands in a bank, might in time
become a bookkeeper or teller,
with the hope of finally becom
ing cashier. Suppose he did all
this. The probability of his be
coming cashier or uaving any
other important position would
be remote; for in the city bank
there are many other young fel
lows with the same ambition,
and usually it is the man who
has capital to put in the bank,
or who nas inuueniiai menus
and can bring custom, who gets
the coveted position, and there
he may stay for life. He might
get into a department store, sell
ribbons and laces to your ladies,
and learn to smile and look sweet
and dress well; but the chances
are that he will only make a liv-
fing and not much more. ' Young
men have- come to town with
only their bare hands, and have
succeeded beyond their expecta
tions; but the majority of them,
like the majotity of people
reared in the city, live from band
to mouth, and thousands of them
regret, that they did not stay on
the farm. - If he should marry,
which we suppose this young
trtan, like most young
men, in-,
tends to do, he can probably
make a bare living for' his wife
and possible family.

young man has a decided apt
tude for some particular form o
skilled labor. Everything de
pendson the man himself, and
we can not give more definite ad
vice. The man who has it in
him, and will work hard and keep
his eyes open and learn all he can
will succeed in almost any line
for which he is naturally adapt
ed. A man is not apt to make
pronounced success in any line
for which he does not have a par
ticular liking. -Wallace's Farmer,
How about that land in sma
grain which recently has been
harvested? Is it going to lie idle
all the rest of the summer? If
good stand of clover or grass has
been secured we have no sugges-
gestions to make other than ad
vising against too close pasturing
late in the season. This year
however, there are not many
small grain fields with a sufli
ciently good stand of clover or
grass to pay to keep. Shall these
fields be allowed to bake in the
sun, losing the most of the scant
moisture which is already in the
The thing to do where nogras
stand has been secured with the
small grain is to follow the binder
with a disk, putting on a dirt
mulch which will preserre mois
ture. Repeat the disking at
least as often as ef ery ten days
or two weeks. Not only does
prompt disking save moisture
but it also destroys many insect
pests, such as Hessian fly, straw
worms, etc.
If there is considerable mois
ture in the ground and the work
j8 pushed along rapidly cowpeas.
80V beans sorghum or millet may
be sown on this ground, espec
tally in the southern half of the
corn belt. These crops are e
pecially desirable if there is a
shortage of hay. If none o
these catch crops is wanted the
ground may be kept bare unti
about the middle of August when
either clover and timothy or al
falfa might be sown. Or it may
fit in better with conditions on
some farms to wait till Septem
ber and seed to either rye or win
ter wheat. But no matter what
crop is used the binder should be
followed at the earliest possible
date with a disk and a complete
dust mulch placed on the ground
until some crop is put in. Sev
eral hundred tons oi water per
acre may often be saved by fre
quent disking. Wallace's Farmer.

Notice the Sweet
Over almost our entire terri
tory this is a dry time, very dry.
The oats are very short, clover
about half the usual length, tim
othy, much shorter than usual and
thinner, blue grass pastures dry
and the plant apparently dead,
but really just waiting for ram.
As you gb 'along the road notice
now the sweet clover. It ts not
as rank as it usually -is, but
stands dry weather better tfian
any other grass crop grown ex-
cct per.; t'.j slfslfa. Is f:ct, it
furnishes evidence that with the
sole exception of alfalfa it is the
most drouth resistant of all our
grass and forage crops. It is
not fair to compare it with corn,
for the testing time of corn is yet
to come when it reaches the same
stage as the clover and other
grasses have reached.
We have always advocated
sweet clover as a forage crop in
sections of less than a twenty
inch rainfall, not as a bay crop
for it is too coarse for hay but
as a pasture crop, and as a hay
crop where no other source of for
age is available. It does not
make good hay; but if cut early,
as soon as it begins to bloom, it
make a fair quality of hay and
in addition produce'a second crop.
One objection to sweet clover,
which is generally regarded by
farmers as a weed, is that unless
it is pastured close, it developes
a flavor which cattle do not rel
relish. They do relish it, how
ever, after they are acostomed to
it and enough of them kept on it
to keep it from going to seed.
This at least ought to convince
our readers that it is not a weed,
but a plant that may under cer
tain conditions become a very
valuable addition to our ordin -
ary lorage crops, we look to
see it a ore f erred foraire croo
west of the 98th meridian on
soils where for somereason al-l
falfa cannot be grown. It is not
to be compared with alfalfa where
