Cotton Seed Meet for Cowe.
What is a proper an l sain ration of
cotton seed meal for milch cowa ?
It depends u|k>ii the sise of the ani
mal to some extent
At somo of the experiment stations
as much as six or seven ixiumls per day
has been fed to cows without any per
ceptible had effects.
But it is a substance that should not be
fed for uny length of time by itself even
to the half of that Quantity. Not over
two aud a half or three pouuds should
lie fed to nny cow, however large, and
this quantity should bi fed in connec
tion with sot rushing that is poor m ni
trogen. A mixture of cotton seed *ueal,
corn meal and wheat bran makes a more
desirable ration than the meal bv itself.
If any of our readers have had an ex
tended experience in feeding cotton seed
meal and the hulls wc should be glad to
have them give their conclusions.
Is there any country or section of
country anywhere more abundantly sup
plied with all the requisites for success
ful stock raising than this southland
country of ours ? If there is we would
he glati to have it named to us. The
time is certainly coming when these
old hills of tho south will bloom in al
most perpetual grass and clover through
which will graze the fattest citt le, hogs,
sheep, horses, etc., that have ever been
seen. We assume that clcctricty will
not entirely supplant our four-footed
beasts of bur len and that there will be
henceforth at least a reasonable demand
for horses and mules of the best quality.
—Southern Farm.
Restoring Fertility.
Through a largo part of the great
West the moans of improving wornout
luncls arc the most practical questions
in farming. It is almost certain
that in large portions of Dakota, even
before it was admitted to Statehood,
successive wheat cropping had seriously
diminished the yield. In Minnesota this
failure of the land occurred several years
ago. It urns at the time thought to be
temjiorary.tlio result of bad seasons and
insects, but it was due to moie serious
causes, and has continued ever since.
Improved machinery for making grain
crops has enabled western farmers to
exhaust their farms rapidly. Less stock
has been kept,and the deficiency in barn
yard manure has been made up by com
mercial fertilizers, good in themselves,
but adding nothing to the permanent
fertility of the soil. The unsymmetrica
character of modern farming is shown
by the smaller proportion of land devot
ed to grass and hay. These do not give
the immediate profit that grain crops do,
but they are better for the permanence
of the business.
Diversity in Farming.
It lias been proved that there is hard
ly a section of country in the Unitct
States that will not produce from four
to a dozen different crops. Diversified
farming is the only successful system,
especially in the northern and eastern
states where from frosts, droughts and
storms, crops are uncertain and the fact
is dawning upon the farmers of the
south and west that diversity of produc
tion is safer than growing ono crop.
Some of the most disastrous failures in
southern farming have been caused by
failure of the cotton crop which is the
only crop some farmers grow. Had
these fa me s g own several differ
ent kinds of crups the failure of
one would not have been felt
so severe
Wc may mskc a spcei.alty of
branch of farming but that must not
be our only production. \\ hen we have
time, captial and labor invested in scl
eral crops wc are sure of making a pro
fit on some of them and our time and
labor are not in danger ot being entire
ly lost.—Linden in the Husbandmen.
Buthels vs. Acre*.
Ask almost any one how many oats
he intends to raise and he will answer,
{•ci haps, "thirty acres," not once dream
ing of any expected number of bushels.
Oats should produce at least fifty
bushels per acre, and if his answer had
been "1000 bushels,
more like business. There is quite too
much superficial talk, and many cover,
haphazard, all the ground they
' Acres" sounds large but "bushels"
puts money in the pocket. The boast
ot a young farmer that ho had put in
eighty acres to spring crops amounts to
nothing but much hard work, unless he
so put it in as to be assured of a good
yield, weather permitting. A dairyman
said: "1 am running thirty cows ;" an
other replied, "1 shall make #2,000
worth of butter this year." The latter
remark has the true ring.—Galen Wil
it would sound
Half-Harveetinn Potatoes.
Somo housewives claim that a hill of
growing potatoes may be dug into and
the largest of the tubers removed, not
only without injury, but with positive
benefit to the crop. The work must
be done quickly and carefully, so as
• not to expose the roots to sun or air. In
covering up throw on a little more earth
than was taken away, and compact it
slightly with the hoe. The operation
is very much like hoeing. It would not
pay to harvest a g eat amount this way
unless to get some for house use while
potatoes were not otherwise obtainable.
For market a pretty high price would
be needed to make it pay,as most of the
tubers removed would grow more if left
longer attached to the stems. In many
cases, however,tho vine is overcrowded,
and the removal of the la ger may leave
needed room for the smaller one6 to de
velop.—American Cultivator.

Sweet Potatoes.
Slips put out in May and June will
make the best and cheapest potatoes.
April gettings will generally require one
or two more workings and rarely make
so smooth and uniform tubers,
ing is gained by drawing the slips from
the parent bud before they have become
well rooted and somewhat hardened.
If overgrow n, or commencing to vine
when drawn,they may be cut or pinched
back. In setting the slips, it is import
ant that the ground shall have been
Ireshly plowed. Our exjteriencc has
taught us that nothing is gained in the
long run by rushing "all hands
drawing and setting the slips iinmedi
ately after a heavy rain. ■
until the ground will do to work, and
make up the beds mellow and fresh.
Meantime the slips may bo drawn and
ready for setting as soon as the gtouud
is in proper condition. An open mel
low soil, permitting free circulation of
the air, seems to be cspeci
to a newly transplanted vegetable. We
would that every farmer could be made
to appreciate the great possibilities of
the sweet potato. There is no root crop
that can compare with it in nutritive
ness, palatabilitv, productiveness, ease
of culture and certainty of yield. It is,
or may be, to the southern farmer what

Remedy for Sore Throat.
At this season, when sore throats are so
prevalent, there Is a great deal of talk about
the proper remedies for them. Chlorate of
potash, which was so long popular, has been
decided by experts of tbe throat to be not
only serious injury to tbe throat, but almost
poison. A late remedy Is perhaps the best
on record, and it is a very simple one. A tea
spoonful of alum and ono tabiospoonful of
best French brandy, put in a half tumbler
of water, or a half-pint of water will modify
it better. This gargle should be used several
times during the day, and at hightif the Irri
tation or pain la troublesome. It will be
found an invaluable throat corrective.

A diamond expert in London thus dis
courses on the product and distribution
of diamonds: "The Americans are the
finest judges of diamonds in the world,
and insist upon having the finest stones
and the most perfect cutting. It is esti
mated that they will take fifteen mil
lion dollars' worth this year. India
furnishes a market for large numbers
of white stones, ns well as for yellow oi
colored diamonds, or stones with flaws
or specks in them. The natives invest
their savings in them and in other pre
cious gems ns we do in stocks and
shares. Russia's fancy is for large yel
low diamonds. China is becoming a
buyer, for very recently the empress
has broken through the old custom
which prohibited women from wearing
diamonds in her country. She could
not resist the beauty of a superb dia
mond necklet prescuted to her. She
wore it at court and set the fashion.
Japan is also rapidly becoming a con
siderable customer. With the opening
up of the world by railway and steam
ship communication the demand for di
amonds has increased marvelously. The
world now purchases about twenty-five
million dollars' worth per annum.
Twenty years ago it was about two
hundred thousand dollars."
A Carpenter Who Made fits Way to a
A good story is told of a United States
senator who began life as a carpenter,
says the Youth's Companion.
I will not always be a carpenter," he
used to declare, for it seems he had set
his heart upon sometime entering the
legal profession. He did not slight his
carpenter's work for hu day-dreams of
what he should do and bocome, but was
noted for his honest, conscientious
One day the young man was planing
a board that was to become a port of a
"judge's bench," when a friend, observ
ing his painstaking, inquired:
"Why do you take such pains to
smooth that board?"
Instantly the young carpenter replied:
"Because I want a smooth seat when I
come to sit on it."
Ilis friend laughed, and thought the
joke so good that he reported it in the
shop, and the young man was bantered
not a Little about the "judge's bench."
He always replied, good-naturedly:
"Wait and see. lie laughs who wins,
and I may sit there yet."
And he did; but the distance between
the carpenter's and the judge's bench
was paved with heroic struggles and

Whan Did Ladles llrgln to Ride Sidewayt
on Horseback?
In a book entitled "Remains Concern
ing Bristain," published in 1614, it is
stated that Queen Anne, wife of Rich
ard II., first taught English women to
ride on side Baddies, when heretofore
they rode astride. As late as 1773 Queen
Mariana Victoria, of Portugal, always
rode astride.
There has been some discussion as to
whether this ancient practice should
not be revived, and the side saddle
abandoned, says the Rider and Driver.
In May, 1890, a lady, wife of an English
baronet, appeared in Rotten Row at

Her riding habit was not only
what longer than the new fashion
joins, but longer than the old
well, and was simply a very volumin

The fashion, however, does not ap

it is known that it is not
for ladies to ride cross saddle os might
be supposed. A curious side saddle is
