Oxen for carriage teams: It has long been known that for draft purposes and faat work on the road oxen can be trained so that they will equal horses in the celerity of their mov ements. That they should be used for carri age teams Is rather novel to say the least. Nevertheless that there arc Instances of their being used as such will be seen by the peru sal of the following paragraph clipped from a central X. Y., paper ‘'Daniel Twogood, of Caniaatota, drove rapidly Into town last night behind a pall of quick stepping, well trained, bright red. 3-year old steers, hitched to a sidebar carriage. The steers are smart road sters. afraid of nothing, have good wind and bottom, and a lady can drive them, for. though high-mettled, they are gentle. Mr Twogood broke thani this spring and they have been In harness twenty-live times. Mr. Twogood found them *per fectly tractable and easy to teach. They are guided by the principle of the over drawn cbec&. The reins run front a ring in the nose to another ring In the head-stall be tween the eyes, and theh pusses around the horns. The force Is therefore exerted on the upper ring. They will euslly go five or six miles an hour.”—Ex. Mr. Woodford, a scientific farmer of Ohio, had a talk with the Field aud Farm the other day on the subject of potato rulslng. Said he: ”I have had a plenty of evidence to con vluce me that your Colorado soil may pro duce three hundred bushols to the aers ono year with another. There is good protit In potato growing, use them for whatever pur pose you may. The spider of ground on which will grow thirty pounds of wheat will grow u thousand pounds of potatoes. And the thou sand pounds of potatoes with the aid of our modern machinery cun be produced at about the same cost that cun the thirty pounds of wheat. There should be, more of them raised for winter dairy cow feed. You will observe In nil of the great milk and butter tost* with Jersey and Holstein cows that a ration of po tatoes Is used.’’—Denver Field and Farm. There is a revengful satisfaction in sawing the horns off of dairy cows, but every first-class Jersey, Holstein or Durham shrinks one-quarter in value the moment her horns are re moved. A beautiful Jersey with her head-gear removed becomes a sor rowful looking brute. Ono of the best woman wo over knew, in Kan sas, obtained a divorce from her hus band on the grounds of brutallity. Ho sawed off the horns of her pet cows. The woman was right, and the court was right.—Field aud Farm. The city is doing a very wise thing in having all the weeds and burs in the uity cut down. It adds much to the looks of things besides destroys millions of cuokle-burs.—Rocky Fo:d Enterprise. Underground Colorado. .The mysteries of the underground portion of Colorado form a subject for an interesting study. It is a por tion of our great state peculiar to it self. Every year wo are learning more of the secrets which rest be neath the sub-soil. The action of the water in solution upon the rocks is the element that makes the soil. In the accomplishment of its ends, water is not compelled to follow the crevices or strata of the rocks, for every rock-mass consists of an aggregation of minerals, and is pre ineatcd in all directions by microsco pic pores, through which the water passes to the remotest recesses of the formation, extracting all soluble ma terial and reducing the mass gradu ally to a softer earthy material. The annual percolation of irriga ting canals is having a gradual and unghty effect on our Colorado soils. The tendency of the constant seep age is to make springs and rills ap pear where they have never been known before. The increasing un der flow tends to increase the volume of water in the natural river-bed to ward which it naturally trends. We have noticed this phenomenon in an arroyo on Doctor Bancroft’s farm near Denver. Just below LaSalle, Weld county, the Latham canal com pany has recently taken out a seep age ditch along the base of the bluff, back of which are a number of large canals. This ditch is three miles long, ten feet wide, and carries stead ily 500 inches of water, which sup plements the main canal below. All this auxiliary water comes direct from soakage. On the old Thomas farm twelve miles above Denver, in the dry bed of Cherry creek, there is a tile-pipo laid under the sand for a distance of 400 feet. It goes to no springs or reservoirs, yet it throws off 150 inches of water the year round. It comes from the moist bed-rock underneath the dry sand. Did it ever occur to you, studious reader, what a vast sponge a Colora do river bottom is? Now, there is the Platte flowing past Denver, which we will take for an example. Its gravel strata far below the sur face is 86 feet thickness. Full fifty per cent, of this gravel-sponge is aquapura. This reduced shows a blanket of water 43 feet deep the whole length and breadth of the Platte valley. Enormous, is it not, when we think of it? Up the Pou dre river the conditions are the same, only that a great amount of water has seeped to the surface and has formed swamps and marshes. Now with all the facts before us, and with the coming ot the steam vacuum pump, coupled with a growing knowledge that we have yearly been great spendthrifts in the use of irri gation water, doos it not appear to the thoughtful reader that under ground Colorado contains much in store for us, which in time will be brought to the surface and utilized? In other words will we not harness up the subterranean elements and lead the waters captive?—Field and Farm. COMMISSIONERS PROCEEDINGS. JULY 15TH.^ All members of the board present.
