The Most Profitable liore.
The most profitable horse to have on
the farm is a good brood mare. She
will raise a colt each year, and it will
sell for a snug sum in the fall, re
marks American Agriculturist. With
a little extra care the mare will do
as much work as any horse. This is
the kind that the average fanner
wants and is the kind he should got
for his own b‘*neflt. Have at least
one good brood mare on the farm;
raise your own horses and some to sell.
llaudlliiK Manure.
Kansas Experiment Station has
found thut the waste by exposure in six
months ■amounts to fully one-half of the
gross manure.
Cornell Experiment Station says: “If
the question is how to get the best re
sults from a given amount of manure
there is no question but that it may be
done by moving it to the field and
spreading it on the laud us soon as
professor Voorhee*, of New Jersey,
claims that more tiian one-half of the
total annual manure product of the cow
may be lost by exposure of less than
four months. The manure should be
spread on the laud as soou as possible
after made.
Corn Selection.
A steady increase in the number of
ears per plaut borne by Potter s Excel
sior sweet corn has resulted from se
lecting seed with that end in view.
In 1901, the fourth year of the ex
periment, but tne first one in which
sufficiently detailed records were kept
to show the percentages oiily 35 per cent
of the plants bore more than one ear.
In 1905 90 i>er cent bore more than one
ear, the highest number from a single
plant being thirteen.
Selecting seed from the lower ear
produced ou the stalk did not give as
good results as selection from the up
pei ear, which is doubtless due to the
fact that such lower ears are ofteu
poorly developed. Rhode Island Ex

Unite the weak and queenless colo
nies, and feed all that need It, before
the weather becomes too cold. Prof. D.
Everett Lyon, in the Farm Journal,
says that as a rule colonies wintered
outdoors will not require more than
twenty-five pounds of stores If prop
erly protected, while those wintered fn
the cellar can get along with nbout half
as much. To ten pounds of granulated
sugar add one gallon boiling water,
and you have n Ideal feed; or else
with hot water thin some ripe extract
ed honey. When the food Is taken up.
remove the feeder and fix the colony
for the winter. In uniting weak colo
nies, always save the best queens. This
should be done nfter the fall flow of
honey. Make the union 'ate In the
evening; smoke the colonies to be unit
ed. Select the best combs and alter
nate them In the hive.
Fromm Milk,
In Sweden and Denmark has been
created anew industry that deserves
notice. It consists In collecting at a
central station the milk from farms
within a given radius, pasteurizing It at
about 75 degrees centigrade, and then
freezing It at a temperature of minus
10 degrees. The blocks of frozen milk
an* placed In stout wooden ensks hold
ing nbout double the, volume of the
blocks and the extra space Is filled
w Ith sterlllz- fl milk, after which the
casks are sealed hermetically.
As they are perfectly full and are
kept cool by the block of frozen milk,
which melts very slowly, and as shocks
of transportation are powerless to
churn the milk Into butter. It may thus
be preserved at least twenty days, so
that the Danes and Swedes are now
sending successfully to their neighbors
and even further whole cargoes of

results, affected hogs should receive In
dividual treatment. Twenty-four hours
before administering treatment, very
tittle feed should be given them. Then
give the following medicine as a drench
to each 100- pound hog; larger or
smaller hogs should receive a doee In
proportion: Oil of turpentine. 4
drachms; liquor ferri dlalysatns. half
drachm; raw linseed oil, 6 ounces. If
necessary repeat the dose In four days,

cultural College.
Alcohol V. (lMoll*.
"Tbs Comparative Value of Alcohol
and Gasoline for Light ard Power,’’ Is
the name of Bulletin No. 93, which Is
Just being Issued by the agricultural
engineering section of the lowa Ex
periment Station at Ames.
In the spring of 1906 the national
Congress pasied an act which became
a law January 1, 1907, permitting the
withdrawal from bond, tax free, do
mestic alcohol when It was denatured
or rendered unfit for human consump
tion by the addition of certain mate
rials repugnant to the taste and smell.
The passage of this law has aroused
much speculation into the possibilities
of this new fuel. The experiment sta
tion compared gasoline and alcohol
with four objects in view viz.: (1) the
beat value of the fuels; (2) their econ
omy In the production of light; (3)
their economy In the production of pow
er nnd (4) the relative safety of gaso
line and alcohoJ for general use. The
conclusion reached In these experi
ments will prove very Interesting to ev
ery reader.
Every successful farmer finds that
he must assert his mastery In no un
certain way over the weeds, these reb
els of the vegetable world, or they will
work havoc in his little domain and
eventually his undoing. The battle
with them must be fought unceasingly,
for they are constantly on the watch
to take advantage of every opportunity,
remarks a writer in American Culti
vator. “We’ll fight It out right here
If It takes all summer!” may well be
the threat Of the farmer to the weed
The great difficulty Is that a great
many give up the fight with the weeds
altogether too soon. The first attacks
nn fierce and spirited enough, but they
soon grow Indifferent nnd abandoned
them altogether. Now, the fact Is that
weeds are of a great many different va
rieties, which seem to be designed to
germinate at different seasons, one spe
<rles following on the heels of another,
occupying the ground as soon as their
predecessors have ripened their seeds.
The result is that weeding, vigorous at
first, but soon abandoned, leaves the
way open and unobstructed for the
later varieties to flourish unhampered,
nnd so they are never conquered or re
duced. but their reign Is more firmly
established from year to year.
Then, again, many who wield the hoe
vigorously are altogether too careless
In their dealing with the weeds outside
of the cultivated fields, allowing them
to flourish unrestrained nbout the ma
nure heap all summer nnd scatter their
seed broadcast upon It, to be advan
tageously planted when It is drawn out
nnd strewn upon the fields In the
The Strawberry Bed.
It will be time well spent to stop
other work long enough to clean ont the
strawberry bed. Weeds keep up a
strong fight for existence, and It is re
markable with what persistence they
struggle for a foothold late In the fall,
and unless destroyed they will be there
In early spring to pre-empt and occupy
the soil. The vines should be so spread
that they form a perfect matted row
with a path from 12 to 18 inches wide
on each side. If the rows have become
too close, part of the plants should be
out out. This is best done now. It is
better to cultivate the soil so frequent
ly that the space between the rows will
never be covered with runners. The
soil should be loose and mellow between
the rows. Upon the same principle that
a road freezes harder than a plowed
field, a berrv patch that is packed hard
will freeze much harder than one which
Is kept meilow. A mulch of some kind
is of great importance for protection.
It should be put on after the ground Is
frozen, and left until after the danger
of hard freezing in the spring. This
will keep the plants from “heaving,”
which is the result of alternate freez
ing and thawing, and the blossoms are
held back long enough in the spring to
escape the usual frosts. Marsh grass
is the best kind of mulching, as it lies
closer than grnln straw, but rye, wheat,
oats or barley straw are suitable.
Shavings or sawdust has also been
used, and so have cornstalks and forest
leaves. There is an objection by some
p--were to the use of buckwheat straw,
as it Is believed that in some way it
poisons the plants, but this no doubt 1*
only imaginary. In localities where
Southern pine is abundant, the needle*
are spread on strawberries, nnd are
highly recommended for the purpose.

Dr. Wnlther Thorner, assistant at the
clinic of eye diseases at the Royal
Charity Hospital at Berlin, has recent
ly made a discovery of great Import
ance In the domain of ocular science,
In solving a problem that several prac
titioners had hitherto studied, but with
Indifferent results. He has succeeded In
photographing the back of the eye and
In obtaining good photographic repro
duction*. So writes J. B. Van Brussel
In the Technical World Magazine.
Ilia Invention Is a large Improve
ment upon the Helmholtz eye specu
lum, -which permits only of examining
the back of the eye. while now an
Image of it can be fired. Owing to
this Invention the delicate art of the
oculist Is destined to enter anew
phase which will doubtless be the
starting point of Interesting discover
ies In the domain of ocular science.
The failure of all attempts made up
to the present to photograph the In
terior, and the back of the eye has
been due to the peculiar structure of
this organ. It is difficult. In fact, *•

employing a powerful source of light

too long and would occasion unendur

Voliva and His Followers Are Going
to New Mexico.
The attractive country around Las
Vegas, N. M.. is to be the scene of the
future operations of Wilbur Glenn Vo
liva and his followers. A cm tract has
been clof< -j for 7,000 acres end VoliTa
and his followers intend to go west as
quickly as they can sell their present
holdings. Within a few months a be
ginning wi.i be made on the model city
that Volin hopes to start. The city is
bo have factories, stores, a newspaper
and is to te self-governing, if present
plans are carried out. Primarily the
colony will devote itself to agriculture,
but it Is the intention to build up the
community sufficiently so that there
will be employment of a diversified na-,
ture. The site is not far from the
hot springs of New Mexico.
This land grant is unique because of
the fact that it is owned by the city of
Las Vegas, which therefore become rhe
wealthiest community, i>er capita, in
the United States.
This city of 10,000 inhabitants owns
500,000 acres, worth certainly $1,300,-
000, and possibly as much as $3,000,000.
The laud is being placed on tne market
In tracts of 50.000 acres, and one block
must be sold before the next is opened.
The money is to be used as a perma
nent school fund. The proceeds from
the sale of the land will be invested
and the interest will be used for main
tenance of the public schools. The
schools will therefore become indejien
dent of taxes and taxing authorities.
Tills is believed to be the only instance
of the kind in this country.
The market for all kinds of crops is
large and is continually increasing.
The soil is finely adapted to the culture
of sugar beets to which some of the
farmers intend to devote considerable
acreage. A beet sugar factory is prom
ised if the plan is carried out.
A deed of bargain and sale from the
Norfolk and Southern Railroad Company
to the Norfolk and Southern Railway
Company, conveying all of the rolling
stock and other property to the latter
concern for a consideration of $lO, has
been filed at Norfolk, Va.
That railroad building in the United
States has reached its maximum under
existing conditions, and that business is
growing five times as fast as the mileage,
is the latest pessimistic view announced
by President llill of the Great Northern.
He says further that there is no money
to invest in railways in view of the atti
tude of the State Legislatures and of the
national government in passing regulative
and restrictive measures.
“If the present pernicious legislation
against railroads is persisted in, and more
particularly rhe enforcement of the 2-
cents-a-mile passenger rate, I, as a rail
road president, say that it would be bet
ter to abandon all passenger trains and
close all the passenger stations in the
United States than continue the running
of them at the expense of the stockhold
ers. The passenger business is now car
ried on at a loss, and to this, 2-cents-a
mile legislation I attribute in no small
degree the present financial depression in
the United States.” This is the language
said to have been used by George J.
Gould, president of the Missouri Pacific
railroad and the owner of a controlling
interest in a vast number of railroads
throughout the country. Mr. Gould has
just returned from a seven months' ab
sence in Europe, where, he said, the peo
ple were timid about investing in Ameri
can stocks in view of the recent hostile
legislation against corporations. He said
that among the reasons to which he at
tributed the late financial pauic was the
terrible verdict against the Standard Oil
Company for rebating. lie thought there
was no comparison between the railroails
of this country aud those of Europe, al
though there were some pretty fair one*
in Germany.
The report of the Erie railroad for the
last fiscal year, which is now made pub
lic, is remarkable in several respects, but
chiefly in the statement that not a single
passenger out of 24.199,723 carried was
killed during the year. At the same time
there was a reduction in the cost of op
eration and more passengers were carried,
at a less rate per mile. Wages were in
creased a million dollars, in the aggregate.
In spite of the big increase in wages, the
road made a gain in net earnings of near
ly $2,000,000. the total being $16,171.-
The Georgia State Railroad Commis
sion has issued an order calling upon the
Central of Georgia railroad and the
Southern Railway Company for “full
disclosures touching the sale of the stock
of the farmer so far as the facts may be
known to them or their companies or ap
pearing in the books or documents in their
possession." It has been charged that
the Southern Railway Company owned a
controlling interest in the Central of
Georgia, contrary to a State law prohib
iting one line from owning stock in a
competing company, and it is the purpose
of the commission to establish the fact
if such is the case.

“Close to Sacrilege” President Tells
Critics of Motto Omission
from New Coins.
Should Be Used Only in Reverence
—Suited for Monuments or
Temples of Justice.
“In God We Trust” is to disappear
forever from United States coins un
less Congress acts contrary to the wish
es of President Roosevelt, and the lat
ter appeals to the people of the nation
to prevent such action.
Mr. Roosevelt Wednesday came out
squarely and decisively against having
the sacred motto on money. lie de
clares, In brief, that the inscription is
a sacrilege when placed on filthy lucre,
that It does positive harm and that it
has been the cause of a great amount
of irreverence.
If Congress compels him to do so, the
President says he will restore the
words immediately, but not* until then
will he do so. He assumes full respon
sibility for the omission on the new
gold coins and shows the warmth of his
convictions in the matter in a response
to various ministers’ associations which
have addressed the executive on the
Letter Set* Forth Hl* View*,
In answer to one of the many pro
tests received at the White House, Pres
ident Roosevelt has written the follow
ing letter:
When the question of the new coinage
came up we looked into ‘he law and
found there was no warrant thereiun for
putting ‘“ln God We Trust” on the coihs.
As the custom, although without legal
warrant, had grown up, however, I might
have felt at liberty to keep the inscrip
tion had I approved its being on the coin
age. But as I did not approve of it, I
did not direct that it shpuid again be
put on. Of course the matter of the law
is absolutely in the hands of Congress
and any direction of Congress in the mat
ter will be immediately obeyed. At pres
ent, as I have said, there is no warrant
iu law for the inscription.
My own feeling in the matter is due to
my very firm conviction that to put such
a motto on coins, or to use it iu any kin
dred manner, not only doe* no rood, but
does positive harm, and is in effect irrev
erence which comes dangerously close to
sacrilege. A beautiful and solemn sen
tence such as the one in question should
be treated and uttered only with that
fine reverence which necessarily implies a
certain exaltation of spirit. Any use
which tends to cheapen it and, above
all, any use which tends to secure its
being treated in a spirit of levity, is from
every standpoint profoundly to be regret
It is a motto which it is indeed well
to have inscribed on our great national
monuments, in our temples of justice, in
our legislative hails and in Buildings such
as those at West Point nnd Annapolis—
in short, wherever it will tend to arouse
and inspire a lofty emotion in those who
look thereon. But it seems to me emi
nently unwise to cheapen such a motto
by use on coins, just as it would toe to
cheapen it by use on postage stamps or
jn advertisements.
* As regards its use on the coinage we
have actual experience by which to go.
In all my life I have never heard any
human being speak reverently of this
motto on the coins or show any signs of
its having appealed to any high emotion
in him, but I have literally hundreds of
times heard it used as an occasion of and
incitement to the sneering ridicule which
rt is above all things undesirable that so
beautiful and exalted a phrase should
If Congress alters the law and directs
me to replace on the coins the sentence
in question, the direction will be imme
diately put into effect; but I very earn
estly trust that the religious sentiment
of the country, the spirit of reverence in
the country, will prevent any such action
being taken.
