(told by drunrlM*. f*| The Farmers’ Institute. The fourth session of the Prowers County Furman*’ Institute met at the court house in Lamar last Saturday morning. It was the most largely attended and moat interesting session of the year. The institute was called to order at 10 o'clock by the president, G. S. Hlosser. Professor C. R. Cooke, of the Agricultural College at Ft. Collins, wan present at the meeting and delivered several veiy instruc tive and entertaining talks on the various subjects under discussion. A vote of thanks was unanimously ten dered him by the members of the in stitute at the conclusion of the pro gram. A committee consisting of M. I>. Parmeuter, E. C. Gordon and J. O. Stream eras appointed to prepare a program and make arrangements for the next meeting. The first thing on the program was an address by Prof. Cooke on “How and When to Irrigate.” He advised the farmers to use less water aud more cultivation, and said that a great many crop failure** were caused by the use of too much water. He said the ground should be wet thor oughly in the fall and winter and after the crop begins to grow should be harrowed frequently to keep the moisture in the sub-soil from evapo rating, bnt that the irrigation should be put off as long as possibe. He i helieues irrigation by windmills ex cept for small tracts is impracticable. Next on the program was the sub jeot of “Subsoiling,” aud Howard Brown handled it in an able manner. A short discussion of this subject by several members followed. Prof. Cooke then took up the sub ject of the “Sugar Beet Industry.” He showed that this valley is well adapted both in soil and climate to the growth of sngar l>eets; that it will be easy to get capitalists to erect factories whereever it is shown that the beets can be raised in large qnan ties; that the sugar beets cau be raised at a substantial profit any where within a hundred miles of a factory. He explained to the farmers that they could get seed with instruc tions as to the beet methods of culti vating them if they would apply to the State Agricultural College, and promise to furnish the college with good samples and statistics in regard to the crop. The next on the program was “Sheep Feeding for Profit” by A. J. Hottel, bnt he retired in favor of Prof. Cooke, who gave an interesting talk on this subject from olraervations made in the celebrated sheep feeding district around Ft. Collins. He ad vised the farmers expecting to en gage in this business not to attempt to raise the latnbs themselves bnt to bay them in the fall from the New Mexico ranches where they can be got very cheap. These lambs have to be dipped to prevent scab, but this can be done very cheaply. He gave figures showing that the business re turned a handsome profit and that there was no grouds to fear that the price would drop off much. G. S. Blosser next gave a talk on the subject of “Dairying.” He said that his experience had convinced him that it paid to patronize a cream ery. He had been patronizing the creamery for nearly a year and was NUMBER 48. well pleased with the result. He bad feed his cows on alfalfa straw and hay in winter and on pasture in sum mer, and had raised the calves on the skim milk, and the net return includ ing calves was about §3O from each cow. Prof. Cooke and Messrs. Jilos ser and Stevenson discussed the question of feeding milch cows. The questions of “How to Get a Stand of Alfalfa” and “Best Time to Cut Alfalfa” were discussed at length by J. O. Stream, J. K. Stev enson, E. C. Gordon, M. D. Parmen ter and Prof. Cooke. The latter was in favor of planting in the fall, but the unanimons opinion of the local farmers was in favor of spring plant ing, but they differed with regard to the advisability of planting with or without small grains. All agreed that the best time to cut was just af ter it blooms. M. D. Parmenter gave his experi ence in raising turnips and other root crops here. He found that the soil was specially adapted to this class of crops, and that they could be raised cheaply and very profitably. “Rye for Pasture” was the last subject of the day and was discussed by Messrs. Stevenson, Gordon, Tho man and Walton. It was advocated by all as the best pasture for spring and fall seasons when the alfalfa is dangerous to sheep and cattle. New Cold Fields. Recent sensational ((old discoveries in tbe Red River district in northern New Mexico indicate that this locali ty will shortly be as widely celebrated as Cripple Creek.
