farmers’ chances and prospects in my
section of the country. As the Illinois
farmers raise corn with profit, they
w«ild want to know what we are do-
ing in that line of farming, and the
results. I should tell them that dur-
ing the last two years we have in-
creased our corn area more than ten
fold, and that the results have been
great satisfaction, both as to feed and
fodder for the stock, and from now on

as would be desirable, It 1b hoped bat
some will avail themselves of the of-
fer. Analyse!! of the same kind will
be made of seed corn offered for sale
where desired, and the department Is
making such analyses on Its own ac-
count also. That corn would be an
appreciably more valuable grain for
feeding, If It vtero richer in nitrogen,
there can be no reasonable doubt, and
the farmer who will systematically set
about developing a strain of an other-
wise good variety that is richer In ri-
trogen, will be a public benefactor,
and doubtless will reap an ample
financial reward. It Is probably need-
less to state that corn that Is being
thus developed should be planted at a
considerable distance from any other.
Persons desiring corn analyzed should
write the station for Instructions and
terms before sending samples.

Tells How Hospital Physicians
Use and Rely upon Lydia E.
Pinkham’s Vegetable Com-

given me varied experiences with the

Developing New Grapes,
For more than twenty years T. V.
Munson of Texas has given his at-
tention to the subject of improving our
native grapes—collecting the best wild
and cultivated varieties, testing them
side by side, and intermingling them
by crossing and hybridizing for the
purpose of producing new varieties of
the best possible qualities, adapted to
different parts of the country, and to
provide the best possible resistant
stocks upon which to graft the Vinl-
fera (wine grape) varieties.
His work has necessitated a careful
study of the botany of the grape and
a thorough knowledge of every native,
Introduced and cultivated species and
variety. In his work with these, more
than 75,000 seedlings, mostly hybrids,
have been grown, and of this number
scarcely 100 have been considered
worthy of introduction for market.
When, however, it is remembered that
no variety with fewer berries than
Lukfata nor smaller berries than Tala-
quah nor inferior In quality to Con-
cord has been considered worthy of
introduction, some idea will be ob-
tained of the rigid system of culling
and selection observed.
Mr. Munson considers the results ob-
tained In his experiments with native
American species most encouraging,
and the field of future development
along this line practically unlimited.
Our native species excel in many
points the Old World grapes. "Some
have rare, delicious flavors, unknown
in the Vinifera varieties; others, great
size of clusters; others, very large
berries; others, small and few seed;
all of great vigor and resistance to dis-
ease and adaptability to our variable
climate. And our experience clearly
shows that all -pedes can be inter-
mingled at will by the Intelligent hy-'

The heaviest pig In these litters
weighed 3.6 pounds at birth and the
lightest 1.6 pounds, the average for
the lot being 2.5 pounds. During the
first week after birth the pig3 made a
gain of 1.9 pounds. Overlooking ir-
regularities, we may say that the pigs
made a weekly gain of three pounds
per head the fifth week aftsr birth,
four pounds the seventh week, and five
and one-half pounds the tenth week.
At the end of the seventh week after
weaning, when 119 days old, they were
gaining more than seven pounds each
weekly, or over a pound a day.
Mixed Ration* for Hog:*-
T. J. Van Matre: George McKerrow
says that his experience has taught
him that an entire corn ration soon
damages the organs of digestion, and
the main secret of good feeding is to
get the animal, when intended for the
market, to eat and assimilate all the
food possible. This can only be done
by feeding a proper amount of a bal-
anced ration, for, if we feed too much
carbohydrates, we not only lose a part
of the food, but overload the organs
with useless work.
As a food for young pigs we have
found a mixed ration of 50 per cent
middlings. 25 per cent corn meal, 15
per cent bran and 10 per cent ollmeal,
wet up to a creamy consistency and
fed three times dally in such quanti-
ties as they will eat up clean and at
the same time appear to be satisfied,
gives us the best results. In addition
to this a few whole oats on a clean
plank floor and a few roots in their
season, make valuable adjuncts. As
they grow older we increase the corn-
meal. until at five to seven months old
50 per cent corn, 25 per cent middlings,
15 per cent bran, and 10 per cent oii-
meal form their rations. Believing
that a hog's 3tomach needs a fibrous
food as a division, we aim to give
them pasture in summer and roots in
winter. You may question the profit
in using some of these foods and isk,
"Why do you feed bran, clover, roots,
etc.?” Because, first, they act as a
divisor for the more concentrated
foods and allow the gastric juices a
better chance of penetrating the whole
mass; and, second, they are all nitrog-

Prof. J. T. Willard, of the Kansas
Agricultural College, says: The sta-
tion is making efforts to establish im-
proved varieties of corn, selections be-
ing based, in part, on the percentage
of nitrogen, and with as much success
as could reasonably be expected, in
view of the almost total failures of the
crops on account of drought the last
two years. The ease with which corn
cross-fertilizes makes these experi-
ments very difficult, especially when

Wait* on the Farm
From the Farmers’ Review: One oi
the principal wastes on the farm is
tiw neglect of farm implements. None
of our farmers look close after their
machinery, which has cost them sc
much money. Another great waste Ls
the care of live stock in winter, both
as to shelter and feed. Frequently
farmers will feed twenty-five, thirty,
or more head of stock out in an open
lot. They haul out the fodder and
scatter it over an open lot for the cat-
tle to pick up as best they can. They
do the same with hay. Another great
waste la neglect to save the droppings
from the cattle and get them back on
the land. All of these wastes could
be avoided if the farmer would give
?arm the consideration to which they
are entitled. Altogether, probably 99
per cent of the waste on the farm U
due to neg'ect and carelessness —Mark
