The average consumption of pruucs In this country is only oue aud on«'- fourth pounds per season. This spem» almost Incredible in view of the lurgi- number of people whom we meet who are full of them. A late writer for one of tha leading •magazlnes'ae^erlblug some rural expt.-- riences got along all right until he struck the quail, which he referred to aa-glflng his call of \bobwhite\ while It drummed on n rotten log down'in the woods. This comes of trying to write about things one knows nothing about. We 'do' not now know of a single per- son \who Is engaged In the raising of Belgian bares. That fad is entirely dead There never was anything to It as a meat making proposition. Bven If the meat could have been' raised un­ claimed there was no profitable market for It It Is about time for another fad of this sort We lately saw a woman driving a team hitched to a mower, and she was cutting the weeds down in a large pas­ ture lot. It was not haW work for either her or the team, and she was doing lots more good than if she hud been doing, some fancy work, reading one of these historical novels or mak­ ing one of some tea party If the hardy catalpn will grow well In your locality you can make some nice money by setting out a plantation for post timber. Plant about elttfit feet apart each way and give Uiorougb cultivation as long us possible, thinning out one-half of the trees as soon us a tree will make a single post We doub. the wisdom of planting this tree norJa of latitude 40 degrees. Through many sections of the west; those which ai-o tributary to the cun­ ning factories, the crop of sweet corn raised thla year will prove to be the most profitable one raised on the farm, Five doilurs per ton has been realized for the shucked corn, and stalks to the value of $1.50 per acre at a low esti­ mate have been left. The good crop gave about four tons to the acre of ears. One waste which we note through the corn canning sections of the country is in the failure to properly suve the stalks of the sweet corn from which the corn has been picked. This Is a most valuable forage and Is well worth saving in good shape. Most of the fielda are turned over to the stock at a time when other feed is abundant We do not know of any nicer food for the milk cow in the winter than these sweet corn stulks well cured. Strange as it may seem, the orchard and garden men near Fort Collins, Colo., for a long thus considered sheep manure as injurious to their trees and crops. At this placo enormous quanti­ ties of sheep are annually fitted for the -market and an unlimited supply of sheep manure was available.' A change, however, has come, sad now it Is re- jgariiftfl •» one of the most valuable of fertilisers, especially for sugar beets. Sheep manure is a highly concentrated fertiliser and might Very easily be used i o excess. Of Its fertilising value there is no -question, for all land upon which sheep run grows constantly richer and more productive. .The range men have their troubles hi thelmatter of transportation of - their stock to market We met one of them recently who undertook to ship over 506 range horses to an eastern market Because of carelessness or -Inability to water these horses at proper Intervals during a hot August season they were kept locked In the cars for a period of 107 hours, and when released and wa­ ter given them 366 of them died In less than an hour. Of course the owner has a valid claim for damage against the railway company, which was the most flagrant violator of the law requiring the unloading and watering of stock every twenty-eight hours. It Is worth noting that lately a loco­ motive on an easterd railway has been very successfully operated by the use of'peat briquettes prepared at a less ,0041 than coal and giving abundant poorer without smoke or' dirt The states of Wisconsin, Minnesota and the north i .iaM of Iowa abound in peat de­ posits .varying in depth' from two to twenty fe^t, an unlimited and available fuel supply, of great calorific val«p just, as •pun as methods are**yolv«xl for Its practical use.
