When Charley Colee succeeds in pushing that big red barn that is floating around in the realms olt his conception, out among the material things of northeast Greeley, it will be ample evidence of individual as well as general prosperity. During the electric storm of last Sunday night the lightning struck Arthur Stoner's pasture fence, near which some of his cattle were graz ing, and when he walked forth in the morning to see how the storm had left things, he found six of his cattle lying dead amid the tell-tale evidence of a tremendous discharge of elec tricity. Rev. Wm. Lewis passed through here last week. Hours free from pas toral duties he spends in the solicit ing business. The pioneers of east Greeley remember Mr. Lewis as the enthusiastic young preacher who identified himself with the Union Baptist church while that organiza tion was yet in its infancy, and with his persuasive eloquence, became in strumental in breaking up the High Five" gatherings which at that time were demoralizing the community. A pair of sweet twin baby boys brought joy to the home of Air. and Mrs. Jas. Blake, Sunday night, June 9th.

At ten o'clock the next day the sympathizing neighbors turned from their labors in the fields and congregated at the bereaved home where funeral services were conduct ed by Rev. Hickok, after which the solemn procession wended its way to the Bowman Chapel cemetery, where now the sweet breath oi June is car essing the flowers back to bloom on a new-made grave. i"^f'p^aVTp*/ 1 'f' ""Vr Why a Woman Is Ablo to Help Sick Women Whan Doctora Fall.

Value of Ensilage on tbe Dalty Farm—One Man's Experience. As a breeder and handler of cows 1 will give my experience for 30 years. I have discovered but two lines of feed ing by which we can depend on secur ing a profitable flow of milk In the half of the year that we are com pelled to depend' on feed other than grass for the maintenance of our cows. The first of these is to provide a ration composed largely of concentrated feed in some form, which plan is usually expensive, first in cost, and further more is not the best adapted for the promotion of health in our animals. The stomach of the animal that has subsisted on grass for the most part or entirely for six months in the year becomes accustomed to manipulating a large bulk of feed, and the change to a diet composed largely of concentrat ed feed is likely to produce a more or less feverish condition in the animal system, subjecting the animal to the attacks of any of the many ills to which cowdorn is subject and at best greatly shortening her period of use fulness. The only other line of feeding that can be relied upon to produce a profit able flow of milk is one composed of a ration in which some form of succulent feed is a predominating factor, and of these ensilage is the only one we have found to be practical. After an experience covering a period of five or six years we have come to the conclusion that the silo is indis pensable to the dairyman who expects to make the greatest success of his business. Ensilage is the cheapest feed we can produce. An acre of ordi nary corn will produce 15 tons of en silage, equal in nutritive value to six tons of hay and occupying less than one-third the space when stored and costing less to store. Cows can be made to produce from 60 to 80 per cent as much milk on en silage and clover hay as on grass, dis pensing entirely with commercial feeds. We believe, however, that a moderate amount of ground feed can be used in connection with ensilage and hay with profit. One of the strong points with ensilage Is its palatability— stock seem never to tire of It. I never saw but one animal cloyed on It, and she was out of condition before becom ing cloyed on the ensilage. We feed our cows a little more than they will eat twice a day and keep hay by them all the time when outdoors, and they are always ready to start for the manger filled with ensilage the mo ment the doors are opened, and the steers will, run over a man if he doesn't get out of the way to get to it. There is practically no waste after taking off the six inches of spoiled ensilage on top of the silo. All kinds of stock will eat it up clean If not fed more than they want. FEEDING DAIRY COWS. Importance of Adequate Supply of Good Jane Of a gasoline stove'burned a lady here frightfully, writes N. E. Palmer, ofKirkman, Iowa. Tbe best doctors couldn't heal the running sore that fol- should keep constantly in mind. His fowed. hut. Rneklpn's Arnica Hnlva en- farmiiig should be based upon a proper Grail. The call for good grass butter is urgent today, and consumers actually long for the spring season, when grass made butter makefe its first appear ance, says a Minnesota dairyman in American Cultivator. So delicate and attractive Is the color and flavor of June butter that all like the product and hold it above that made at any other season. Packers and merchants store this June butter and hold it all through the winter season, selling it gradually at an advance over all oth ers. If it was needed, other evidence could be cited to show that grass is the most natural and best food that can be fed to the dairy cows. Good June grass performs a work in the economy of nature that no artificial methods have yet duplicated. Never theless, some dairymen show such dense lack of appreciation of this that they fail to bave a decent grass pas ture on their farms. Dairying without good pasture fields is very much like playing "Hamlet" without Hamlet. It Is Impossible for the farmer to pro duce tbe desirable results which he may have vaguely In view. Grass and hay, then corn and other succulent foods, should be the relative order of foods which the dairyman conception of the value of these foods, BO that when be plants a crop he knows exactly what he will get in return for It. A good pasture farm Is a small for tune to a dairyman, but the science of ke.ping up this pasture to Its full pro duction is worth more to him. And yet there is no great secret In the question. It is merely the application of common sense, knowledge and judgment in fur nishing the .grass crops with tbe right food to keep them going. Robbing the soil and starving the grass roots must always be followed by poor grass and bay crops sooner or later. Neglect the crop this season, and we will have to pay for it nest. Sometimes the payment comes sooner than we expect, and, again, It Is post poned for some Indefinite time. When an overdraft is made upon the soil, it Is always wise to make restitution as soon as possible. Put on an extra sup ply of fertilizers this year and do not neglect it until too late. We cannot take from the soil more than there is in it, but we can cultivate crops so tha the full food supply Is developed and expanded. A good deal of the food supply of any soil Is wasted, as a rule, through lack of cultivation and a prop er method of utilizing it. These secrets should be known and then used to their utmost.
