Of Farmers, For Farmers And Pertaining To Farmers- The wind stormofthe 5th did considerable damage but it was too late for last issue of the! Democrat The next morn ing. Thursday, we learned that about half of the bay stacks and ricks and the out ricks or stacks had been untopped or turned over. '.But to offset that, the glorious rain was of incal culable benefit to the corn crop. It was the same way near Rens selaer, for Mark Hoblet gave about the same version ot the wind as those neartr town did. Charles F. Straub of near Ely, is through his threshing. He had 1750 bushels of oats and 421 bushels of wheat. F. H. Hagan's 2 car loads of home grown cattle averaged 1373 in Chicago and fetched $5.35. BOARS. Thoroughbred Poland China boars, March pigs.

Grass fine, 30 acres of oats threshed out 588 bushels and he thinks bis 30 acres of corn will yield from 50 to 60 bushels per acre as it did last year. The following farmers are not crying over the result of thresh ing: J Elliott's 100 acre oat field panned out 35 bushels per acre. J. S. Hagar's 20 acres went to 30 bushels per acre and and J. J. Elliott's 30 acres of white oats panned out 35 bush' els per acre. fi. Manning Walker's exper ience with bone dust is satis factory. He sowed 23 acres of prairie land to bone dust and wheat. He has threshed bis crop which panned out 325 bushels and the thresher men said, it is the best wheat we have baud led this season. If prairie ground will make 14 bushels per acre w ith bone dust while 'wheat lands" without it are producing from 5 to 12 bush els, we want to know what is the matter witb bone dust?

Spalding the noted fox hunter and hound man is a bit puzzled and over a freak of nature. One of his w'fes hens "stole her nest out" and the children by watching her learned that she had taken possession of a Partridges nest with eight eggs in it. She must have scared the mother Quail away for she set on the nest and hatched the entire lot of e;gs and a few days since brought them in out ot the weeds.
