FAKM NOTES.
R. G. Dunn & Co's. weekly review
of Irada says :
Tho markets arc nil influenced by
tho prospect of an increaso in cur
rency based on silver. Silver has
advanced nbout 2c per ounco, wheat
2 l-4c per bushel, oats 3c, coffco and
oil l-2c each, cotton at 7-lGc, pork
25c per barrel and stocks havo been
stronger. Tho average of prices for
all commodities roso over 1 per cent
from tho ICth to tho 22d, but has
since declined about one-half as
much.
Trade reports this week nro favor
able except from the region affected
by the almost unprecedented Hoods
in tho Mississippi valley. Three of
tho trunk lines arc interrupted and
tho loss will bo considerable. At
Galveston trade is dull, too much
rain having affected crops unfavor.
ably, but real cstato is very active
because of the prospect of harbor im
provement. In Florida business is
very dull nnd no encouraging signs
arc perceived. But at all northern
centers of trade the situation is very
satisfactory j the volumo of business
is largo and collections aro fairly
prompt.

Every young weed that coin;: up aud
h cut down is ono weed less to go to
seed. Tho way to keep down weeds Is
to allow tho seeds to germinate aud then
destroy tho young plants. In this way
the work Is better and easier performed
Strawberries have now made consid
crablc growth. Tho easiest way to thin
them out is to use the hoe, by which
method tho row can bo left wide or nar
row, as preferred. If weeds appear in
the rows pull them up by the baud, as
they rob the plauts of moisture.
The greatest care should be taken to
select those varieties of corn intended for
sllago that will fully mature before frost
in the localities where it Is proposed to
grow them, a less number of tous ol
mature corn being In all cases mor
valuable than a much larger number of
tons of immature corn.
Old pasture fields are usually full of
weeds which have crowded the grass
out. To utilize such pastures turn sheep
on them. The sheep will eat tho young
weeds as well as tho grass, and greatly
assist lu destroying tho pests. In the
fall the sod can be turned under aud
resccded with less dauger of the weeds
again appearing.
Young bulls of tho Improved breeds
aro sold at a very low figure compared
witli their real value, and farmers who
have dairy herd can grade up their
stock at a very low cost by securing the
males when they are young. Heifers
are high, as they are lu greater demand
by those who do uot object to paying
good prices for superior stock.
Ducks will fatten readily If given
plenty of feed. On tho farm where they
can have a good raugo they do not re
qulro but llttlo feed. If too fat they will
not eggs, and at this time tho eggs arc
tho principal source of Income. As
soon, however, as tho weather will per
mit, commence picking the ducks aud
geese for feathers.
Prof. Brown Is of tho opinion that the
dairy world is yet to bo taught that the
extenslvo uso of grain Is not correct
economically ; that a largo quanty of a
mixture of roots with hay fodder Is both
economical aud safo for inllch cows and
that possibly there Is better health with
roots, though a slightly Inferior quality
of milk.
It Is tho farmer who says the gatden
docs not pay, who never knows the hap
piness to bo derived from a good one.
IIo Is content to llvo on withered vege
tables and pork. A man may bo known
by bis diet. Ono who eats hog aud much
of ,hlm Is apt to partako largely of tbo
porcine make-up. A well kept garden
is the best paying Investment on the
farm. A llttlo care for the ground and
somo judgment exercised iu selecting and
planting seeds will lusuro to any farmer
a good garden, and bring joy, gladness
and health to the whole family. Rural
World,
Mr. John N. Doehla and Miss
Minnie Dcitz were married at the
Lutheran church Tuesday evening by
Rev. J. N. Schneider. Mr. Doehla

teemed young ladies, and they take
with them many congratulations for
their pleasure and prosperity.
During tho last presidential campaign
J. G. Blaine made a remark in a speech
to the effect that trusts were largely
private affairs with which tho govern
ment had no control. Tho democratic
papers made all the political capital
possible out of these words. Senator
Sherman has introduced nu anti-trust
bill iu congress and Iho "democrats now
say that it is unconstitutional and arc
lighting the bill with all their power.
Will they explain tho consistency of their
light during the campaign or how they
made their new discovery? Ex.
"Before wc take up the collection
this morning," remarked the good
pastor, a3 he looked mildly over tho
congregation, "I wish to say that wo
have in the church treasury already
two quarts of nickels that appear to
have been punched through and after
wards plugged with lead. Theso
coins, I am told, will notbuy stamps,
groceries or fuel, and conductors on
street cars refuse to take them. The
choir will please sing, "O, Land of
Rest, For Thee I sigh.' "Ex.
Never within tho recollection of
the "oldest inhabitant" havo tho
roads been in such execrable con
dition as now. Why should not tho
state have Roman roads? Unless,
indeed, the members of tbo legisla
ture pay moro attention to the needs
of those engaged in agricultural pur
suits, aud decent roads is one of
them, there is likely to be a chango
in the personnel of that branch of tho
government. Rural World.
