FOREIGN' WHEAT CROP The Agricultural Outlook of June 23, published by the United States Department of Agriculture, gives the following facts regarding the foreign wheat crop: In early June prospects for the Northern Hemisphere wheat crop were, excepting a few countries, fully normal. In Asiatic countries im mediately north of the equator, notably Southern China. British In dia, and Persia, wheat harvesting was finished. The yield of British India is officially estimated at 313,. 000,000 bushels, against 358,000, --000 bushels in 1913, a decrease of 46,000,000 bushels. Unofficially the Persian crop is put at 14,000,000 bushels, a deficient yield compared with that of the previous year. In countries along the north coast of Africa, next in harvest succes sion, prospects as a whole are less promising than a year aso. The Egyptian wheat, though good in general, has been Injured in the Province of Menufia by storms and in upper Egypt is reported below average, In the eastern and coast regions of Algeria drought In March did much Irreparable damage, but in other regions the plants were widely revived by April rains. Prolonged drought has also seriously affected the small crop of Tunis. Throughout the Continent of Europe wheat seems in general to have made the progress toward ma turity to be expected at this season, notwithstanding widespread appre hension at times of deterioration In some countries from lack of suffi cient rainfall and unseasonably low temperatures. in thee United King dom the former fine prospect was reported in late May as well main tained, though cool weather was then retarding growth and rain was needed in some places. The total area under winter and spring wheat In France on May 1 has been officially returned as 16,045, --000 acres, as compared with 16, --176,000 acres last year and 16,179, --000 in 1912. The month of May was characterized by violent changes of weather, and it is now realized that a satisfactory outcome of the French crop depends upon continu ous favorable weather until after harvest. In Spain. Italy, and Portugal the ripening grain gives general promise of bountiful yields, excepting in southern Italy, Sardinia, and S'clly, where drought is said to have seri ously curtailed the output. The stales of north-central and south-central Europe, as a whole-, re port prospects about normal. In the Scandinavian countries, Germany, and Austria vegetation is somewhat backward, because of dry and cool weather, but no actual damage has resulted. In Hungary, the former discouraging outlook for a full crop shows considerable Improvement compared with a month ago. and In Roumania the fears aroused by a prolonged drought have been dissi pated by general rains. The Rou manian wheat area has been offici ally returned at 1,832,000 acres, compared with 1,011,000 acres in 1913 and 5,114,000 in 1912; a fail yield cm the present acreage now seems assured. The scant reports from the Balkan States Indicate con ditions of growth differing in no im portant respect from those of ordi nary years. A semi-official report from Russia slates that the condition of winter wheat there was "good" in 66, and spring wheat -'good" in 66, out of 72 governments. I.ate in May copious rain fell in nearly all districts; the benefit to crops, which in some places were beginning to show the effects of drought, was Inestimable. The total area under grain in Canada is provisionally returned as follows: Wheat, 11,203,800 acres, oi -188,800 acres more than in 1913; oats, 10.811,000 acres, compared with 10.434,000 acres last year; barley, 1,604,000 acres, or 9000 acres less than a year ago. and rye, 111,070 acres, against 119,300 acres in 1913. The' condition of spring wheat June i was '.'.:. winter beat was 79. Till: FARMERS' TWO .ions Speaking in a broad and general way, the farmer has just two jobs on his hands this year ami every year. The first is to produce the stuff, and the' second is to sell it to the best advantage. The production depends mainly on the-, fertility of the soil, and this again is largely governed by the way he- has performed the job of production in times past. if we are to produce to advantage. fe must absorb and us,, the wisdom and experience of the. past. We must have a rotation of crops. We must give proper drainage, if that is lack ing naturally. We must keep the soil stored with vegetable matter. We must select the right kind of seed, of the right variety, and of good qual ity. We must plant and sow. Wo must cultivate. We- must harvest and stack, crib, or otherwise protect the crop until It is time to take up the second job. We may elect one or two ways of selling the stuff produced. We can sell it as coarse grain directly on the market, or keep It until the market is ready for it; but in either case it amounts to selling more or less of the fertility of the land. The other way is to manufacture it into meats; that is, stock growing. Very few men are equally efficient in doing these two jobs. Some men are expert grain growers, but don't know how either to breed or to feed or to market live stock. Some men can breed wisely, but fail in feeding. Other men breed well and feed well, and yet fail to market to the best ad vantage. The breeding and feeding of live stock Is a much higher type of farming than is simply growing grain; but even than the most suc cessful breeder and feeder of live stock is not always a good grain grower, for the reason that he gives his special attention to his live stock and neglects his grain growing; and vice versa. Some stockmen prefer to market their crop in the shape of pork, others in the shape of beef, others in the shape of wool or mut ton. Others in the shape of horse flesh, and still others— and this is really the highest type of farming after all —in the shape of milk and butter Many grain growers fall down in their marketing because they tail to co-operate with their neighbors in getting the shortest way to market. Many stock growers, though perhaps not so many, fall because they do not co-operate in breeding their live stock or in selling it to the best advant age. We have not attempted in this ar ticle to tell farmers in detail how they should grow their grain or how they should handle' their stock. We simply want to put before them this thought, that there are just two jobs before the farmer. One is produc tion and the other is selling either directly or through live stock. There are several advantages in the live stock route to market. One is that it maintains the fertility of the soil, while exclusive grain grow ing wastes it. Another is that It helps to solve the labor problem, because It furnishes labor to a hired man the year around, and belles to distribute the work over the year. Another is thai we have better buildings and a better .stale of society in live stock sections than in grain growing sec tions. The highest civilization we have is where there is the highest form of stock growing, namely, in the dairy section.- —Wallaces' Farmer. SOCK SKIM MILK FOR CALVES That in summer time calves do as well on sour skim milk as they do on sweet will he interesting news to many farmers who have hitherto been kept from raising calves by the expense of keping the milk sweet in hot weather. This expense experi ments carried out by the Department of Agriculture indicate to be quite unnecessary. The calves will make as: rapid gains on sour skim milk. In winter, it is true, this is not quite so satisfactory. It chills the calves and some of them drink it with great reluctance. Very young calves have even been known to refuse it altogethr. On the other hand, of course, it is much easier to keep the milk sweet in winter. In calling the attention of farmers to these facts, however, the Depart ment of Agriculture at the same time emphasizes an important precaution. Unless the milk is produced and kept under cleanly conditions, it may be come contaminated with disease producing bacteria. Farmers should therefore allow the milk to sour quickly and then feed it without de lay. In the course of these experiments sour skim milk was fed to 22 calves, Holstelns, Jerseys and Guernseys, at different seasons of the year. In no case did it cause digestive disturb ances even when the change from sweet to sour milk was made abrupt ly when the calves were only a few days old. Moreover, no evil results followed the alternate use of sweet and sour. it seems, therefore, that the common idea that sour milk leads to scours is quite unfounded. The calves, it was found, did not like the sour milk as well as the sweet, but in the majority of cases soon became accustomed to it. The aversion, however, increased when the milk was fed them at a low tem perature. A GOOD SHOWING The first annual report of the j board of trustees of the North Pa- ' cific Fruit Distributors to the af filiated fruit growers of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana has just been printed and issued under the' title of "One Year of the North Pacific Fruit Distributors." It is be ing distributed to over 8000 grow ers for the avowed purpose of fully informing them of the details of the first year's business transacted by their own co-operative organization. Among the features revealed are that in less than a year after being finally organized and opening per manent offices, the Distributors re ceived a total price for the products I marketed of $3,069,935.51, selling S3 per cent of the fruit handled on J an F. O. B. basis and operating at a total selling cost, including the ex- ' pense of maintaining the central of- ' fice of brokerage and exchange, of ( legal, claim and traffic departments and of extension and organization, only a fraction over five per cent of the net returns and approximately four per cent of the gross returns to the central, realizing an average price per box for apples, all varieties, all districts, all grades and all sizes* of $1.26 F. 0. 8., shipping point, and that the Distributors shipped fruit to 243 cities in 38 states In the Unit ed States, 33 cities in six Canadian provinces and 16 cities In 10 Europ ean countries and to South America, South Africa, Australia and the Philippines. DRIED BEEF A government recipe for dried beef is as follows: "The round is commonly used for dried beef, the inside of the thigh be ing considered the choicest piece, as ii la slightly more tender than the outside of the round. The round should be cut lengthwise of the grain of the meat, so that the muscle fiber may be cut crosswise when the dried beef is sliced for table use. | A tight jar or cap is necessary for curing. The process is as follows: To each 100 pounds of meat, weigh out five pounds of salt, three pounds of granulated sugar, and two ounces of saltpeter; mix thoroughly together. Rub the meat on all surfaces with a third of the mixture, and pack in a jar as tightly as possible. Allow it to remain for three days, when it should be removed and rubbed with another third of the mixture. In re packing, put at the bottom the pieces that were on top the first time. Let stand for three days, when they should be removed and rubbed with the remaining third of the mixture, and allowed to stand for three days more. The meat is then ready to be removed from the pickle. The liquid in the jars should not be removed, but the meat should be re-packed in the liquid each time. After remov ing from the pickle, the meat should be smoked and hung in a dry attic or near the kitchen fire, where the water will evaporate from it. it may be used at any time after smok ing, although the longer it hangs in the dry atmosphere, the drier it will get. The drier the climate, in gen eral, the more easily meat can be dried. in arid regions, good dried meat can be made by exposing it fresh to the air, with protection from flies."

He is a curse to his owner, and his owner is cursed by the neighbors. The pure bred sire that is backed by parents and grandparents of high merit, will add quality to the offspring from your /herd.
