Stoney Creek Dairy. ls-15 Chris Ellei is one farmer who realizes that deep plowing does not always pay in other words, during a dry season it does not turn out the crop equal to more shallow plowing. He cites the past season as an instance to prove his conclusion. He says he took occasion to plow unusually deep last spring, while some of his neighbors worked their land just the contrary, plowing shal low, and the latter in every case had, as a result, better crops than he realized. He thinks this is owing to the dryness of the sea son, the long spell of dry and ex ceeding warm weather sapping the moisture from the .land as deep down as the soil was lapse, leaving the roots without suffi cient dampness to properly nur ture the stalk. In the case of shallow plowing he contends that the hot winds would onlysap the soil as deep as the plowing went,1 leaving moisture continuously ex uding from the solid soil below that kept life the plant. There may be some thing in this, and to one not versed in the matter of soil cul ture Chris's conclusions would seem well founded. four late issues of The Pacific Monthly, containing fully illus-1 Strayed or Stolen —From the trated descriptive articles about!

August Peters appeared at The Tribune office the first of the week with a couple of ears of Squaw corn as samples of what he had produced on his farm in this line this year. As we had seen Squaw corn as grown for years in the southern part of the state, we had been led to the be- brought in by our friend com pletely dispelled such an idea, as each ear was at least ten inches long and well filled with close and regular rows of well-filled ker nels, presenting an appearance to the uninitiated of being quite as good as any vai'iety grown. It certainly looked good, and Mr. Peters assured us that the field, throughout looked quite as good! as the samples he brought in. Wonderful improvement has cer tainly been made in this variety of corn, within a few years, and in this connection we quote from the Bismarck Tribune what a grower over on the slope has ac complished in this direction with in a few short years. The Tri bune says: "Mr. Smith, who has been -a farmer and stock raiser in Oliver county for fifteen years, and began" experiments with the development of corn when he first began farming,has bred up the old Squaw corn, that had four to six rows of kernels on an ear five or six inches long, until this year he raised ten acres of corn, with fourteen to sixteen rows of kernels, growing on an and substance in ear eleven to twelve inches long, all rows and kernels well filled, and the ears resembling in color and firmness the best of the dent corn raised in the corn states further east." plenty of milk at Stoney Creek milk wagon. 14-15 J.

Lux and Vosen will con tinue to occupy the houses, while the heads of the families make a tour of the western country.

E. C, J. E. MURPHY, For Sale or Rent—My residence property, located in the east part of town. New house—three lots —fine well of water. Terms reasonable.—Mrs. Robt. Movius, Bowbells, N. D. 14tf Fred Martin, who is the happy owner of one of the best farms out in the hills country, brought to The Tribune office a few days ago a large sweet pumpkin and two ears of a choice early variety of corn known as 90-day flint, to be shown as samples of what the hills country is capable of pro ducing in these lines. The pumpkin weighed 22 pounds, and was as smooth and perfect, fully matured and ripe, as you could find grown in any country, while the corn is really a revelation, and at once puts to rest the talk of the many who are want to con tend that this is no corn country. Fred has raised this corn success fully for several seasons, and is now about to harvest an acre and a half of it, from which he con fidently expects to realize 55 to 60 bushels. The kernels are perfect and the rows regular, filling the ear well, the whole showing a quality and substance that speaks volumes for the Bowbells coun try's capacity for and adaptabili ty to raise a first-class article of corn. He left the ears with the request that we enter them in the contest tomorrow—Market Day—the which we will religious ly attend to. 1 black mare, 9 yrs. old, weight 1400 I gray gelding, 7 yrs. old, wt. 1200 1 gray colt, 3 years old, weight 1 150 1 wide tire Moline wagon, complete 1 6-ft.

Htf Jonathan and Mrs. Southward were in from the farm Saturday for the first time since their re turn from the east, where they had spent several months with relatives and friends, principally in New York city, where, on the side, Jonathan informed us "they are selling schooners eight inches deep, two for five cents, I which he said accounted for the 'general improvement in his ap appearance, physically. But, then, jokes aside, our friends do look the part of their visit having done them mountains of good, and so attached had they become to their surroundings while ab sent that they have now decided, after settling up matters here and leaving their affairs in such shape as is their want, they will return east and possibly remain away till harvest time next year, spending their time between friends in Iowa and New York state. Jonathan informs us that he has rented his farm for the coming crop season to his son Jim, who with his family will move into the house as soon as Mr. and Mrs. S. depart for the east. While The Tribune much dislikes to see our old friends leave here, yet we hope their visit will be freighted with good health and pleasure unbounded for both.

Call at my residence and pick out what you may want and I will price the article so that you will surely buy. —Nels Leerskov. 14tf H. G. Johnson was a pleasant caller from Rennie on The Tri bune last Saturday and reported threshing in that vicinity nearly completed, though as a general thing the crop did not pan out as well as expected. This was own ing to the fact that a strip of country in which his own farm is included failed to get any rain '.for sometime previous to ,the heated spell, and the latter com ing on when the ground was very dry, the growth of the straw was stunted and the heads came out short in thin straw, cutting the crop off at least half of what was promised a little earlier in the season. There is not much flax threshed as yet, and the wheat has so far run from five to twelve bushels to the acre.
