Certain baking powder makers are publishing falsified extracts from the
Government reports, with pretended analyses and certificates, wherein an
attempt is made to compare their baking powders with the " Royal," or
making bogus tests from house to house, their obvious purpose being to
counteract the recent exposures of the inferiority 6f their own goods arising
from their impurity, low strength, and lack of keeping qualities as shown
by the Government chemists and others.
As to whether any of these baking powders are
equal to the "Royal," the official tests clearly deter
mine. When samples of various baking powders were
purchased from the grocers, and analyzed by the United
States Government Chemists and the Chemists of State
and City Boards of Health, the reports revealed the fact
that the "Royal" contained from 28 per cent, to 60 per
cent, more leavening strength than any other cream of
tartar baking powder, and also that it was more perfectly
made, of purer ingredients, and altogether wholesome.
As these powders are sold to consumers at the same price, by the use
of the Royal Baking Powder there is an average saving of over one third,
besides the advantage of assured purity and wholesomeness of food, and of
bread, biscuit, and cake made perfectly light, sweet, and palatable advan
tages not to be had in the use of the low-grade, cheaply made baking pow
ders that contain lime, alum, and other impurities.

Thursday morning Prof. E. A. Iiurnett
talked of wool and sheep, Illustrating with
charts the fibre grown upon healthy and
diseased animals. Poor and insufficient
food causes the fibre to be weak and easily
broken. Sheep exposed to continued
storms grow brash wool. It Is this 10 or 15
per cent of poor wool, mixed with the good
that degrades the Michigan crop and tho
better farmer Is made to suffer from the
average created by his careless neighbor.
The heavy, oily fleeces, also, bring down
the average price. Tho manufacturer buys
with a view of using the scoured wool not
the grease, which must be eliminated. Sisal
twine should never be used, as the pieces of
libre break olf and can not be separated
from the wool, and damages the fleece.
Foreign wool is not tied with heavy twine
but with cord slightly heavier than wrapping
twine. This is preferred by the manufact
urer. At the close of this address, it was
resolved that the farmers present favor and
will practice a closer scrutiny of wool prep
oration with a view of securing the best
prices for an honest product. It was suggest
ed that farmers place their names upon each
piece by a tag, and thus establish a reputa
tion for an honest wool crop.

J. 8. M'BKIIK'8 PAPER.
In the antebellum days cotton was king,
and ruled the nation with its gold. Whom
it would it put up and whom it would it put
down. When the great American desert
was peopled with the bright, smart overflow
of the East, the rains came to meet civiliza
tion and it blossoms as the rose. The rains
seemed to keep up with the tide of emigra'
tion, and the people caught the western
craze of corn, and more corn was the pre
vailing thought of tho people. And they
went to raising more corn to fat more hogs
to buy more land to raise more corn to fat
more hogs to buy more land, and the same
song is sung and theory is practiced from
year to year. And Corn has become king.
Its acreage is about 55 per cent of all cereals
and in quantity is four or five times that of
wheat, averaging over 1,600,000,000 bushels
for the past eight years, and has reached in
one year 2,000,000,000 bushels, a quantity
so great that it would take 80 million teams
at 50 bushels each, before shelling, to draw
it, and which on the road in a string one to
every two rods would reach to the moon and
back and once around the world, lhe U.
S. produces ? of all the corn in the world
Our climate here in Michigan, although far
up north, is well suited to raise good crops
of corn, usually enough heat and moisture
to mature middle sized corn in perfection.
In raising corn success largely depends on
getting a good ready. We must commence
back the year before and save the seed out
of that crop long before any preparation of
of the soil begins. In hauling the corn 1
pick out the well developed ears of the kind
1 desire and lay it over a register over the
kitchen stove, and let it be three months,
and you can warrant t'J grains out of 100 to
grow. It will stand almost everything but
cutworms and crows.
Clover sod, well manured during the win
ter and early spring and a good start of grass
1 count a gotxl chance for corn. I he grass
answers two purposes, it moistens any ma
il nihil qualities and makes feed for tho cut
worms till the corn outgrows them. I pre
fer to have the manure hauled and scattered
from the wagon regularly over the field
Plow, say one half of a ten acre field. Fit
and plant quickly after plowing. Then fit
for the balance of the field and plantquickly
after plowing, and you will not be bothered
much with cutworms.. In regard to fall
plowing for corn, if a man would do it for
nothing and board himself, 1 would say,
"No, sir, I thank you.
Plow with jointer and not over four and
one hair Indies deep. Drag tno ground
well. We use the Vaughn drag, 105 small
steel teeth. It takes twelve feet at a sweep
going down into the heart furrow and equal
ly well over the back of the lands; then roll
the land and drag till all is fine. Mark the
ground three feet eight inches one way.
Drill the corn one grain six to eight Inches
apart in the row. Drilling corn has decided
advantages over planting In hills, one stalk
growing by itself is not crowded like hills of
com, and you get a strong stock and a
strong ear. You can drill as fast as a horse
will travel. It is all put in regularly about
two inches deep, the ground being pressed
in nicely over the com. It comes up regu
larly and dragging does not pull it as it
would in hills.
(Jet the corn In early, say from 7th to 12th
of May, if possible, in this part of Michigan.
The first important thing in the culture of
the corn crop is dragging, tho harrowing of
corn before it conies up, and that is some
thing we all have been negligent alout, is
one very essential thing. I do not like the
dragging immediately after it conies tip, ftr
the points of the corn aro easily broken oil';
but wo put in our Vaughn harrow aftr
planting and it works the ground all over,
destroys the weeds that are starting and
leaves the ground in the best possible condi
tion for the corn to come up. It pulverizes
any crust that may be formed on the ground.
Then after it Is up and in leaf, commence
again, dragging the corn, and keep it well
dragged till it is six or eight inches high. I
notice that corn is harrowed later and later
every year. Men are harrowing it when it
stands higher than they ever supposed they
Then comes cultivating corn; then the
harrow Is laid aside. We use tho New
American wheeled harrow, taking out the
enter section of five spring teeth, leaving
five spring teeth on eacli side of the row of
com making ten teeth running between tho
rows of corn, and I think that it cultivates
very nearly to perfection. It should be cul
tivated four or five times, not deep, but
close to tho rows of com, and if wet
weather or anything happens that the rows
get grassy we put on small moldboards on
the two teeth next to the corn and the weeds
and grass disappear.
IT the season is dry, the oftener we stir
the top soil, so as to keep it loose and porous
the more moisture It will receive by capillary
attraction from the subsoil and atmosphere,
and thus render more nourishment to the
crop, we must also stir the ground as soon
as it will do after a heavy rain, to prevent
the formation of a crust. I do not believe
In cutting and breaking the roots. I think
it Injures the corn or any plant to cut- and
mutilate its roots. Esjwcially in dry weath
er It will make the plant wilt and show signs
of being crippled.
When I was a boy this deep stirring was
thought to be the tiling for dry, hot weather
but it looks to me akin to cruelty to sever
its roots and stake the plant sickly, at a
time when nature is withholding her re
cuperative resources. Shallow culture and
lots of It Is safety.
Some think wet Wfiatlipr nrnl

pievHience in ury seasons. At any rate It
does not originate spontaneously, but from

One word in regard to 13. & W. corn or
ensilage corn. After filling my silo I had
perhaps one and a half acres of silo corn
left. I had it cut in large shocks and well
tied. I hauled It and feed it out before
opening silo. I was surprised at the
amount of feed it produced. I estimated
there was twenty tons to tho acre. It
seemed to be good to roast and to bake, to
boil and to fry; in fact, it was good for
everything. The stalk had so much saccha
rine matter that the stock ate them up clean,
while they cared but little for the common
field corn. There was certainly five or six
times the feed and nourishment in that com
that there would be In the same amount of
land in hay.
In this generation corn raising has been
revolutionized. Now a man with good tools
can easily raise forty acres of good corn and
not havo a hoe in the field, and could raise
as much more If he would use as much ener
gy as the Dakota wheat farmers do in rais
ing wheat. One man will drive a three
horse team ahead, and lead a three horse
team behind, running two drills or two
drags, each twenty feet wide.
