ULLETIN 174, Ohio
Experimental Sta
tion: In a newspa
per bulletin of the
Ohio Agricultural
Experiment Station
. (No.172) giving the
results of expert
menta with fertiliz
ers on the clay soil
of one of Its sub
stations, a table was
Kiven which Indicated that barnyard
nanure had produced increase of crop
to the value of $2.50 per ton of man
ase In the three grain crops of a Ave
crop rotation, leaving the residual ef
tect on the two grass crops yet to be as
pertained. By an unfortunate lapse of
memory, however, the mistake was
made of computing only half the quan
tlty of manure actually used, as it had
been used on two crops In the three
rears, namely, corn and wheat, at the
rate of 8 tons on one plot and 4 tons on
another on each crop, making a total
application to the two crops of sixteen
ions and eight tons respectively, and
reducing the value of the Increase due
to the manure to about $1.25 per ton
The manure used in this test had been
accumulated from horses and cows in
an open barnyard during the winter
and summer previous to its applica
tion, and was under, rather than above
the average open yard manure In qual
Ity. A similar comparison of manure
and fertilizers has been made at the
central station, beginning immediately
after the relocation of the station in
Wayne county, on the same crops, corn
Dats, wheat, clover and timothy, grown
In a five-year rotation. Four wheat
crops have now been taken in this ro
tatlon, three crops each of corn and
oats and five crops of hay, the mead
ows thus far being mown but once a
pear. Five tracts of land are Included
In the test, each tract containing thirty
plots of one-tenth acre each and so
managed that each crop will be repre
tented each season after the first rota-
tion is completed. At this stage of the
work only partial results can be given,
as a full rotation would include five
crops each of the cereals and ten crops
of hay: but it may be useful to note
the results already obtained, which are
as follows, the value of the increase
being computed on the bases of 33 1-3
cents per bushel for corn, 25 cents for
oata. 66 2-3 cents for wheat, $3 per
ton for straw and stover and $8 for

It will be observed that in this test
the smaller application of manure has
been relatively the more profitable, but
this may not be borne out by subse
quent results. At the Bub-station there
has been but little difference thus far
In the apparent effectiveness per ton
whether used at the 4-ton or at the 8-
ton rate per acre. The results show
an immediate recovery of about a dol'
lar and a quarter on the average in
increase of crop, at recent prices, for
every ton of manure used. But the
long continued experiments by Lawes
and Gilbert at Rothamsted, a descrip
tion of which is given in bulletin 71 of
the Ohio station, bIiow that not more
than one-half to two-thirds the possible
Increase from barnyard manure Is re
covered in the first crops grown from
It We may therefore safely offset the
residual effect of the manure against
the cost of application and consider the
Immediate increase as clear profit. In
another experiment at the central sta
tion, potatoes, wheat and clover are
crown in a three-crop rotation, and in
this test the increase from manure ap
plied to potatoes has reached $2.50 per
ton, potatoes being valued at 33 1-3
cents per bushel. Barnyard manure is
relatively deficient in phosphoric acid,
as compared with ammonia and potash,
and the experiments of the Ohio sta
tion indicate that phosphoric acid is
the constituent most needed on the ma
jority of Ohio soils, but that it only
produces Its full effect in the presence
of ammonia and potash. The price of
acid phosphate has fallen during re
cent years until It can now bo bought
for delivery anywhere in Ohio, at prices
which bring its actual phosphoric acid
below 5 cents per pound, and as the
sprinkling of acid phosphate or super
phosphate on barnyard manure is be
lieved to have a beneficial effect In pre
venting the waate of ammonia from the
manure, it would seem that the use of
acid phosphate In this manner might
serve the double purpose of preserving
the ammonia of the manure and in
creasing the effectiveness of both' its
ammonia and potash. Experiments on
this point are now in progress at the
Ohio station.
The Mole.
An English paper says: The profes
sional mole catcher was quite an In
stitution in my youth. Like rat-catching,
poaching, bird-snaring and fish
netting, night-line setting, and even
spearing of salmon in the close sea
son, mole catching "ran in families,"
and I have known it to run through
several generations. These men
"went on circuit," and carried their
Implements of destruction with them,
and undertook, for a stipulated price
per dozen carcases, to clear the farm
at molps. On a large farm where I was
employed, a lengthy stretch of perma
nent Brass and about thirty acres of
arable land, lying between a wild moor
and a large river, was "Infested" with
moles, and many a hard day's work I
have had in leveling the hillocks and
scattering the soil over the surface of
the land. The farmer who employed
me was greatly in advance of his
times, and his theories as to tho prac
tical usefulness of moles, weasels, and
almost every kind of wild bird, were
the subject of much bucolic ridicule.
That is nearly forty years ago, and
that farmer is dead, but not his theo
ries. These were founded on long and
close personal observations, and their
absolute accuracy has long since been
recognized by all intelligent field nat
uralists and agriculturalists. As far as
moles were concerned, the land where
they "most did congregate" was natur
ally poor, but in course of time the
moles Improved it, and out of curios
ity I visited the old steading and land
last summer and found It rich, infin
itely superior in heart to that of many
other holdings where the demon mole
catchers were still employed in the ex
pensive and destructive work.'
The mole, like ourselves, is not per
fect it has more than one "redeeming
vice;" but, taken as a whole, it is a
friend of the farmer. It destroys a vast
quantity of injurious grubs, and in its
searchings for these insects, it cer
tainly does injury to the roots of cer
eals and other plants, more particular
ly when the soil is light and In very dry
seasons. The destructive "leather
jacket" is a great source of Its subsist
ence; it destroys mice, and it even does
good as a kind of subsoil drainer of
the land. I may conclude with an ex
tract from a letter addressed some
years ago by a Yorkshire farmer to a
well-known naturalist, a portion of
which appeared some years ago in a
work dealing with ornithology, ento
mology and mammology in relation to
agriculture. To kill moles is to leave
the corn and turnip crops (upon light
lands, such as sand and deeply-soiled
wold land) to the ravages of the wire-
worm, the grub (cockchafer) and other
insects. I farm, and have farmed, from
a thousand to fifteen hundred acres in
different parishes, and have noticed
that when you try to exterminate
moles, rooks, sparrows, etc., you have
far more destruction of crops. An old
mole-catcher came to me and asked me
whether I would have the moles killed
on my land. I said, "No; if
I had no moles I should have no
crops." He said, "You are the first
man whom I have heard say that, but
you are right." He then proceeded to
say: "I was employed by a gentleman,
who had a large, sandy field, to kill off
the moles. It used to grow nice crops,
though it was so full of moles. I killed
them all, and the field never grew any
thing to speak of afterwards. The
grub, wireworm, etc., used to eat the
roots of everything that was sown, and
the young plants died off."
Crystallizing Fruits.
Few confections are more delicious
than candied fruit, and few sweetmeats
are more expensive, 60 cents a pound
being the regulation price, and a pound
represents a very small amount. They
can be prepared at about half the cost,
however, at home, If care is taken.
Cherries, currants, pineapples, aprl
cots, pears and peaches are best expe
rlmented upon. The two former can
be used in bunches; the pineapple is
sliced across the fruit, each piece be
ing a good quarter-inch thick; apricots
are cut on one siae and the stone slip
ped out,, while pears and peaches are
halved, and, of course, peeled.
Make a very thick syrup, pound for
pound, adding for each pound a small
cup of water. Boil the sugar first, then
drop in the fruit, and when they have
Dolled clear take out and drain from
the syrup. If tne cherries are stoned
(the red ox-hearts make the finest, be
ing not too sweet as the white and
without the rank tartness of the sour
red ones), it is nice to string them on
a broom splint, as they can be more
easily handled.
Sprinkle liberally with powdered su
gar, lay on a sieve and set the fruit in
a warm oven. I used a wire dish, such
as our grandmothers kept fruit in, set
within another dish to catch the syrup,
In two hours turn the fruit, sprinkle
with sugar again. Keep this up until
the sugar has all dripped out. On no
account have the oven hot, as it will
dry the fruit and leave it like so much
leather. And, of course, the fruit must
bo laid in single rows when drying.
When the juice has evaporated and
the sugar has formed a glazed surface.
put away in boxes in a dry place. Wax
ed paper should be laid between each
layer. A bureau drawer is as good a
place as any to keep them.
New Centres of Distribution. The
big shipping points or production dis
tricts are now the big distributing
points of the country and not the large
cities, as heretofore. Whether this will
work to the advantage of the producer
or not is an interesting subject for de
bate. The prices for a car are tele
graphed broadcast to every town large
enough to consume a car of potatoes,
melons, tomatoes or any other product
raised for distant markets. The great
est losses to the distributors come from
the class that orders the goods and then
refuses to accept them on some pre
text when the market fails to reveal a
margin on arrival of goods. Fruit

Small Ridges. The small ridges left
by the drill should remain. They pro
tect the young plant3 from the wind
and from heaving in the winter, for
the same agency that pulls the plants
up by the roots molders the ridges
down at the same time. In dry
weather the plants find more moisture
in the valleys than if the surface were
a level plain to be swept by the wind.

Coat of an Arre of Wheat.
James Glover of Hafper county, Kan
sas, sends the state agricultural de
partment an estimate, which he says
many good farmers approve or have
verified, showing the cost at which
wheat can be and is raised for in that
county on lands that can be bought
for $10 to $12 per acre and give yields
ranging anywhere from 15 to 40 bush
els per acre. His figures are as fol
lows: Interest on land ($15 per acre) at
8 per cent ....$1.20
Taxes I3
Plowing 80
Harrowing twice 2(
Drilling 25
Heading 1-00
Seed, average 60
Total $4.18
On the foregoing basis he places the
cost per bushel on different yields per
acre', including G cents per bushel In
each instance for thrashing, thus:
15 bu. per acre cost 34 cents per bit.
18 bu. per acre cost 20 cents per bu.
20 bu. per acre cost 27 cents per bu.
25 bu. per acre cost 22 cents per bu.
It is on record that in 18S9 E. F.
Burchfleld of Harper county raised an
average of 42 1-3 bushels on a 20-acre
field; J. P. Marker of Ellsworth coun
ty the same year raised 50 bushels per
acre on 130 acres; Israel McComas of
Jackson county had 51 bushels average
on a 19-acre field, and Warren Fulton
of Pottawatomie county harvested 54
bushels per acre from 18 acres. Sec
retary Coburn has no doubt later
thrashing will show that these figures
have In many Instances been surpassed
this year in Sumner, Cowley and other
counties, but suggests it would be a
mistake for everybody to "rush into
wheat" expecting to acquire fortune
through often realizing the phenome
nal yields mentioned.
The Farmers' Review would like the
opinion of its readers on the above es
timates. Horsos' Sore Jlouth.
Many horses, especially during the
first year of their working period, are
constantly in possession of a sore
mouth, and this not only causes the
animal great suffering and usually loss
of flesh, but is also a matter of great
inconvenience to the driver, says an
exchange. This, if continued for sev
eral months, is also liable to leave the
animal with a chronic habit, such as
throwing the head while hitching or
unhitching. We have in view one very
valuable young horse, owned by a
neighbor, which became almost worth
less on account of the habit of throw
ing its head, and at the same time lung
ing sideways into the ditches. The most
effective plan which we have ever tried
consists of winding any ordinary bit at
the corners and down on the same for
about an inch, with tanned sheepskin
(which can be procured at any harness
store), being sure that it is not too
thick and heavy. With this well wound
on, now have a cup of sulphur, and
each time as the bit is placed in the
horse's mouth moisten the leather and
rub on a little of the pulverized arti
cle. It is well also to leng:hen the bri
dle as much as possible during this
time and not drive with a tight check
ing rein. After having adopted this
plan we succeeded in curing a young
horse of a very sore mouth which was
contracted during the working period
the past season.
Cover the Bulb Bed. Be sure to give
the spring blooming bulbs a nice warm
winter blanket of leaves, litter from
the stable, or brush, or a combination
of all, and do not be in a hurry in
spring to get them out of their , winter
clothes. Don't rush out the first warm
day and clear away all the brush and
litter Just because it is unsightly look
ing. The crocus and snowdrop will
not need so warm a covering as the
other bulbs and can be uncovered
earlier in the spring. But from the
tulip, hyacinths, etc., gradually remove
the covering, leaving the finest of the
stable' litter on the beds permanently.

dote is related of a child who was
greatly perturbed by the discovery thai
her brothers had set traps to catcb

the birds." "Anything else?" "Yea,"
she said. "I then prayed that God
would prevent the birds getting lntc
the traps," and, as II to illustrate tn
doctrine of faith and works, she added
"Then I went and kicked the traps ai:
