Washington, Dec. 22.—The final estimates of the crop reporting board of the bureau of statistics of the department of agriculture (In which prelim inary estimates made earlier in the year are revised and and corrected), indicate the acreage, production and value in 1906 of the farm crops of the United States to be as follows: Crop Acreage 96,737,581 29,599,961 17,705,868 30,958,768 6,323,757 2,001,904 798,206 2,505,927 575,014 3,013,150 Hay I... 42,476,224 Tobacco 796 099 LARGE FLOCKS TOGETHER, 'How many hens can we safely put together in one house or flock?' 'Will hens lay as well when kept in one large flock, giving proportionate room, as, for instance, in a large barn or other building where every bird can go where it likes, as when housed separately in smaller apartmentB?' Many have asked these questions, and most of those who have tried to ans wer them have decided in favor of small flocks kept separately. In order to test the matter T/racticaf|ly anid definitely, 'Mapes, the egg man,' is now putting up a two-story hen barn .24x36 feet in which 500 hens will be kept and handled as one flock. Com menting on this venture, the Rural New Yorker says editorially: 'Mapes the hen man has often said that he thinks he can keep 500 or more hens in one house. Critics have said: Why don't you try it and see? Now that is what Mapes intends to do. The house has been started. M» Mapes will not hesitate to tell the truth. Last winter he had the cour age to report that on some days his 1,400 hens did not lay an egg. The working out of this experiment, show ing how hens can stand a crowd, will be one of the most interesting features of the coming year.' City born and bred as we were, our first observa tions in wholesale poultry keeping were made on the estate of an uncle in Germany. The poultry house was a large, round, three-story stone tower, hundreds of hens (of the com mon barnyard stock, mostly) occupy ing the ground floor as a laying room and the second floor as roosting room, the loft being occupied by large flocks of pigeons. This tower stood nearly in the centre of a several-acre yard tightly enclosed on one side by the stately mansion, dairy building and bakery, on another by the cattle barns, on the third by the horse stables, shops, hay barns, etc., and on the fourth by an extra square, with yard, for the sheep barns and dwell ings for shepherds. The hens had free range over the yards and the fields without, and, of course, good care generally. The egg yield was never failing, and the flock was con sidered very profitable, especially as they were kept largely as scaveng ers, there being so much waste stuff, scattered grains, etc., on the farm of several thousand acres. No farmer large or small, at that time, how ever, ever thought of dividing his hens in small flocks kept separately. All were kept together in one flock, and even these "dunghills" just shelled out the eggs. A few years ago one of our neighbors, who has now moved out of town, but is 8till keeping 'poultry, kept from 500 to 600 hens, mostly Leghorns and Leghorn mixtures, in one building, a common farm barn originally intended for the common farm uses, with horse and cattle stables, hay mow, etc. This barn had been fixed up for the purposes of a large poultry house. A tight floor had been put in for the second story, which latter was used for roosting, laying and hatching rooms. Grains and beef scraps were bought from first hand at wholesale and the whole un dertaking was carried on in aa eco nomical and business-like manner. In short, it was made this man's chief business, and he managed to make a fair living from it, and support him self, wife and several children in a modest way. Persoually, from what we have seen elsewhere, we have not the least doubt .that it is entirely pos sible and feasible to keep 500 hens in one large flock with profit, provided all other essentiol conditions of success in poultry management are supplied. We are tempted to make the trial our selves but in order to have every chance and every advantage, we would (and will) keep nothing else but pure bred Hamburgs (Silver Spangled in our caBe). We believe that with no other fowl can we get more eggs, and get them at less coin.. The eggs an. small, it is true. But in winter, and in summer, too, an egg is an egg." The above from Practical Farmer, has many good points but we think if we had 1,400 hens that at any time in the year did not lay an egg, wc should "sit up and pay attention" till they oid. In such a case there must b«» something radically wrong with the management somewhere not less than 500 of a flock of this size should have been early hatched pullets, and very many of these pullets should have be gun laying before cold weather set in, and if not over-crowded, and If prop erly fed, the layer part of them would keep laying right through. The year olds, too, should be laying some all the time except possibly In the height of moulting. The number, if properly housed and handled, should have little to do with the egg production. We visited, the past summer. In California, one flock of 2,700 laying hens kept on less than two-thirds of an acre, and they were laying hens, bright and healthful as a flock of ten on a tena-cre lot. The size of a flock that can profitably be THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. and Farm RIM.

WHY CREAM VARIES IK TEST. It is not an unusual thing that cream will vary from two per cent to eight per cent in a single week, and those who have not made a study of the causes will at once say: "This can't be, it must be a mistake." Yet it is no mistake, and a little observa tion and study will undoubtedly re veal the reason. Let us, as a guide for such study, call your attention to a few of these causes: 1st. Let it be understood that the cream screw does not have all to do with the density of cream produced. The cream screw may never be mov ed and yet the test of richness of the cream will vary accordingly as con ditions change. In the spring, milk is generally thinner than in summer, fall or winter, and when this is the case the cream produced by the sepa rator will also be thinner. At other seasons when the milk is richer the cream wijl be richer also and of higher screw which remained in the same position on both occasions. 2d. The temperature at which milk is separated makes a difference, viz: The colder the milk the thicker the cream, and the warmer the milk the thinner the cream. 3d. The higher the speed at which a separator is run the thicker the cream slower motion produces thin ner cream. 4th. The practice of flushing the machine after skimming has its ef feet inasmuch as about the same amount ot water or skim milk is used on the smaller skimming as on the larger, and thus the cream of the smaller skimming is unduly thinned down to a lower test. 5th. To feed a separator fast will produce a thinner cream slow feed will produce the reverse. 6th. In some makes of separators a foreign substance will accumulate around the cream screw, causing the machine to gradually deliver a richer cream until this obstruction is sud denly flushed away, when the separa tor will at once deliver a much thin ner cream. There are other reasons and com binations of reasons' why cream will vary in test from day to day and from season to season, none however, but can be accounted for on the farm if conditions are closely observed and studied. The Babcock test machine records every variation in the rich ness of cream, but does not te'i why. German compositors have arranged a new agreement with the master printers, which is to be in force for five years. The claim of the men was for a 15 per cent increase of tariff rates. They have obtained 10 per cent increase a week, a reduction of hours from nine a day to eight and a half.
