We have a communication from a Nebraska subscriber which criticises somewhat severely what he terms, "The Silo Campaign." He calls at tention to the fact that the conversion of corn into ensilage in no wise in creases its feeding value, whereas the same corn placed in the shock and sensibly fed out maintains practically its full worth for feeding purposes. He says that a neighbor used ensilage last winter for his herd of dairy cows and although he fed his cows practi cally all the ensilage and hay they would eat they did not give as good results as they formerly did on corn fodder, hay and grain. This sup scriber states that the average man is led to believe that the feeding of ensilage does away with the necessity of using grain, while as a matter of fact calls attention to the urgent ne cessity of using some of the high priced concentrates in connection with it. It is true that there has been con siderable of a campaign waged dur ing the last year or two in favor of the 'silo. The experiment stations have been leaders in this campaign be cause practically every station in the grain belt has issued or.e or more bul letins in which information is given on types of silos and instruction im parted in regard to their erection. The agricultural press has also been most enthusiastic about endorsing the silo proposition and it is unfortunate if in the enthusiasm ol the campaign farmers have been misled as to the value of ensilage. We can only speak for ourselvles when we say that we have never indicated that ensilage v-'as anything but a one-sided ration. We have repeatedly stated that because of its palatability and therefore its ease of digestibility, farm animals could be carried through the winter in a more thrifty condition on ensilage alone than would be the case if fed corn in any other form. This is not equivalent, however, to saying that concentrates should not be used in connection with this highly-prized food. As a matter of fact when used for dairy cows or for fattening cattle it is absolutely necessary that a balance be struck by the use of such foods as bran, oil meal or cotton seed meal. We can imagine many a man being disgusted with ensilage before grass comes another year because of its fail ure to greatly increase the production of a dairy herd or tomterially increase the economy of grains in fattening cattle. Wherever this complaint is made, however, one may rest assured that the oor results have been due to the fact that little or no attempt has been made to sensibly use concen trates. There is absolutely no excuse for any man going to the expense of building a silo and cutting up his corn if he is going to turn around and feed it to cows in such a way that they will produce 150 or 200 pounds of butter annually. Men who own silos cannot afford to handle cows unless they can produce at last 250 pounds of butter a year and this can be done only when fairly good cows are kept and when they are fed a judiciously balanced ration. The same general principle will hold true in the case of those who expect to use ensilage for beef-making pur poses. While ensilage may be more nearly adapted to this purose than for use as a food for dairy cows with out any adjunct it is nevertheless true that for the purpose of making eco nomical gains some form of food rich in protein is an absolute essenital. It goes without saying that whether in dairying or in beef making the man who does not have fairly good stock to work on is going to be disapointed with his results and he will regret the investment he has made in a silo and will moum over the useless labor that has been expended in filling it. In short, the silo fittingly typifies the new agriculture, a form of equipment as much out of place where old fash ioned stock is handled as a silk hat in company with barnyard boots. The Iowa Homestead. the of gains was in iyuo-u mis coomparison was again made and half of all the corn fed was attached to the stalk. Here cost of production was practically the samt. again the being only ten cents per hundred less for snapped corn. The feeding of corn on the stalk in the morning with shelled corn and alf alfa hay at night is providing to be a very economical system of beef pro duction, and it may be continued throughout the entire period by stack ing the bundles near the feed yards for use in late winter. For such pur poses corn which has been drilled a little theker than usual is best because the ears are somewhat smaller, though it should not be planted so thickly that the yield of corn will be reduced. By feeding corn fodder we utilize the stalk and yet are put to no extra la bor in husking it. In fact, corn can be cut with a harvester and put in the shock cheaper than it can be picked and cribbed, in as much as three men with a team and harvester can cut and shock seven acres per day. Records from the farm department of this ex periment station show that it costs $1. 18 per acre to cut and shock corn, which figure does not allow for the wear and tear on the machine. Three cents per bushel would cover the cost of haresting corn with a machine and putting it in shocks in which form it may be fed direct to the cattle. There is no question in our minds but what many of our stockmen subs cribers have tried out this plan and hav found it to be satisfactory. We same in both lots, affected until a much longer time had elapsed. This period of immunity varied with individual cows from less than a month to more than a year. There was finally reached a condition of low vitality in which a sudden and complete breakdown occurred. This stage was marked by loss of appetite, a general haggard appearance, luster less eyes, a rough coat, and a very rap id decline in both live weight and yield of milk. If salt was supplied at this period recovery as rapid. In one case potassium chlorid as given in stead of common salt (sodum chlo rid). Considerable of the potassisum salt was eaten, though cows ordinarily refuse to touch it, and recovery fol lowed as quickly as when common salt was supplied evidence that not the lack of sodium but the lack of chlorin was responsible for the troubles. The breakdown due to the lack of salt, usually occurred after calling when the milk How was heavy, and generally the cows giving the largest amount of milk were the first to show distress. Babcock points out that the amount of salt required in the ration will vary greatly in different localities. Soils which contain large quantities of salt doubtless produce feeding stutfs con taining more salt than those poor in this ingredient; and again the water of streams and wells varies greatly in its salt content. Those facts doubtless account for the disagreement among experimenters in different parts of the world as to the importance and value of salt. Cows in milk and sheep show the greatest need of salt have in mind one instance where an fattening cattle, horses, dry cows, and stock cattle require less salt; and the pig but a little".

III SllUCIt ill ICilSl 100 acres of corn annually and this is practically all fed out during the win ter months to fattening steers. In this case it is fed on the ground in the pastures excepting only when in the ground is soft and when it is cov ered with snow. His reason for hand ling it in this way Jis that it distri butes the manure absolutely without labor and he further believes that the exercise obtained by cattle in pick ing up their roughage and part of the grain in this way actually contributes to the making of gains." It goes without saying that when it comes to the matter of carrying steers for a long feeding period there will be too much waste too attempt to feed corn fodder in this way through to the end. As steers get fat and lazy they need their food in concentrated form and if fooder is used too extensively they will not eat enough to make maximum gains. On the other hand, during the first three months of a feeding period the plan of using corn fodder some what extensively is entirely feasible and practicable. The Iowa Homestead.

Smith, of the Nebr aska experiment station, has for a number of years been accumulating data on the various methods and plans of fattening steers. In all his work he has kept in mind two main factors, namely, the cost of making gains and ecnomy in the expenditure of labor. He has obtained most satisfactory re sults from the use of corn fodder (the whole plant) when it is judiciously used along with shelled corn and alf alfa hay. Summarizing the results of experiments conducted a few years ago at the Nebraska station. Profes sor Smith says : "The objection that is usually rais ed against the practice of cuttine and shocking corn for feeding purposes is the labor involved in husking it from he shock. The fact that a great deal of corn may be fed to cattle in the stalk unhusked is entirely over looked. In a 1905-06 experiment one lot often two -year-old steers was fed corn fod der for a period of twelve weeks in comparison with the same amount of snapped corn and stover fed another lot. Two-thirds of all the corn given the one lot was attached to the stalk, the remainder consisting nr ch..n b . ..v.... The R. Farm of Sidnaw, Michigan, desires to know our opinion as to the possibility of salt causing abortion in cows. They enclose a clipping on the subject. The article to which this inquirer refers says in substance that salt in terferes with the breeding powers of animals and in some instances causes abortion. We gather from the article that the salting of the herds was done spasmodically and in some instances the animals became ravenously hungry for salt. We are not partcularly surprised that animals deprived of salt for some time or given it irregularly would suff er more or less from such practices. bupiwse an animal was given feed but once a week and then civen all that it wanted, what results could be expected? It is not nceessary for us to make any further comment upon this particular phase of the subject, except to say that salt would be less harmful than anv other fed that we could mention. We have always been led to believe that salt was necessary for all live stock. Excessive consumption of salt is apt to work injury, as it increases the amount of water excreted in the urine. It creates, what might be termed an abnormal thirst and animals are apt to drink too much water which will injure their digestion and may lead to other disturbances. When animals are allowed free access to salt at all times they will consume only enough to meet the requirements of their bodies. It is quite possible that feeding salt to excess mierht prove injurius to the breeding powers of animals and even cause abortion, but, if regularly fed in resonable amounts, or, better still, if kept before the animals at all times, we believe that it is far more beneficial than in jurious, and we base our judgment FOLEY KIDNEY PILLS Supply just the ingredients needed to build up, strengthen and restore the natural action of the kidneys and blad der.

We have been having a number of letters lately from farm boys or their parents, boys who have been raised on good farms and presumably have learned a great deal about farming that can be learned nowhere else than on the farm. They want to know what profession they should chose, or if they decide to remain on the farm how they can best equip themselves for the life of the farm. Here as everywhere else much de pends on th boy, and much on his parents. If the boy has real farm ing instincts and is fit to be a farmer, we do not know any better profession that he can choose than that of farm ing, particularly so if his father is a farmer and offers him a good oppor tunity. The other professions are pretty well filled. We have all the doctors we want now, and a good many that we don t want and would be a good deal better off without. We have all the lawyers we want, and a good many whose room would be worth a great deal than their company. There is room., large room, for doctors who will study how to keep well and not merely to cure them when they are ill; and there is large room for law yers who will study how to keep peo ple out of lawsuits rather than to en courage them to get in order that they may help them out. There is room large room for men whose parents have ordained them to the ministry; in other words, who have the spiritual, social and intellectual de velopment that will fit them to point out to men the way to live best in this world and develop a Godlike character. There is room for men who can con duct big business in the lines laid down in the sermon on the mount; and there is room for farm boys who can do this. We know of no place, however, that there is such large room as on the farm for the boy who is fit to be a farmer. Now as to preparation for it: An agricultrual education is valuable, provided the boy has enough of the farrming instinct in him to keep him from being switched ofT in to something else; in other words. who has the stamina to get an educa tion is of inestimable value. A com plete agricultural college education, however is not absolutely necssary to the farm boy, provided he has some one to advise him as to what books and papers to read in order that he may get the help needed. We would advise at least a year of two in an agricultural college, in which he can get in touch with other farm boys who are like-minded. This will be mi mmm a tmmtmm mtmm should, he should post himself on breeds and breeding and feeding. Then he should study markets and distribution and learn something about co-operation. Now any bright, wide-awake farm boy can get the substance of this on the farm, if he will, and is given the time. He will get it better in an agricultural college, however, provid ed is aim is single and he does not allow himself to be diverted by other things, and does not allow himself to get into expensive habits nor to get out out of the habits of work and economy which belong to the farm. They are really about the best part of the farm education. We are speaking now of the boy who does not expect to go into any of the semi-agricultural occupations, such as teaching or editing or becoming an expert in livestock judging, or things of that sort, but of the boy whose parents would like him to stay on the farm and be with them in their old age. For this sort of a boy there is no better business than farming, no business that requires a higher intel ligence, more careful habits of study and observation, or more executive ability. It is not everybody whe -is fit to be a farmer. Wallaces' Farmer. James C. Dahlman, "Cowboy" Mayor of Omaha, "Throws the Lariat" Mayor Jas. C.
