f ';;"- -jtfcAt the .farmers ot Illinois nro turn
WC their attention to growing high
jrotela corn for tho purposo of pot-
Mag a better balanced ration (or
'Mock feeding it will bo well to con-
sider somo of tho probablo results.
To grow a largo crop of high protein
corn wilj roqulro a soli rich In nltro-
(N. Tn trouble with most Illinois
farms nrbcro a proper rotation of
corn and cloror or other leguminous
ylants have not been followed Is that
"these lands aro already deficient In
nitrogen and to attempt to grow a
high protein corn upon them in their
present condition will likely result
In disappointing ylolda. It seems prob-
able that tho yield from such lauds
will decrcnio ns tho protein content
of the corn Is Increased. It Is now
an established fact that tho corn plant
cannot obtain nitrogen from tho nlr
but Is dependent entirely upon that
which Is nvallablo In tho soil. There
Is therefore but ono courso for tho
.grower of high protein corn to follow
and that Is to Increase tho nitrogen
In tho soil by growing moro clover
cow peas soy beans nud other
legumes oil of which hnvo tho power
of obtaining nitrogen from tho nlr
through tho agency of bacteria In
their root tubercles. While It lu es-
sential .that theso leguminous crops
should Do grown by every corn grow-
er. I' wish to cmphnslzo tho point
that tho grower of high protolu corn
will exhaust avnllahlo ultrogen In tint
oil moro rapidly than tho grower of
high starch corn mid must therefore
havo soil rich In that clement to ob-
tain tho best results.
As feeders wo want tho high pro-
tein corn for our Uvo stock but It
eccms probablo that a high starch
corn would bo less exhausting upon
tho soil and give a larger yield on
light and thin soils. Wo do not know
this to bo truo. Hut sluco nil plants
get their carbon from tho air It
would seem that tho variety ot corn
containing tho most carbonaceous
'--vttor -nl least protein would pro
duce tho largest yield In bushels on
tbln colls. This Is n point of much
Interest to tho grain seller who cares
moro tor yield than for feeding value.

The Home Market for Meat.
Georgo F. Thompson says: Although
It Is always Impossible to know tho
extent of tho homo market tor Uvo
stock and their products nil ngrco to
tho proposition that tho homo market
U tho best markot. Certain features
of tho Uvo stock Irado may bo shown
very easily but to glva figures con
corning tho markets as a whole is not
posslblo. Such a statement would
necessitate not only nn nununl enu-
meration of Uvo stock hut a record of
animals slaughtered on tho farm nnd
In tho village town ai.d city. Tito
consus roports ot 1000 aro helpful to
somo extent In that they glvo the
valuo of tho animals sold (less thu
number purchased) and tho value of
those slaughtered; but thcro Is uoth
Ing to show how much of theso values
roprcsontcd cattle or how much rep-
resented sheep hogs nud horses. It
Is Interesting nevertheless to know
that tho farmer of thu United States
disposed of Uvo stock In 180'J to the
value of 7329131H. This repre-
sents tho not sales as tho vuluo of any
animals purchased wore deducted from
tho valuo of thoso sold. During thu
samo year thcro wcru slaughtered up-
on farms animals having a total valuo
of 1189873310. In other words ev-
ery persou ungaged in agricultural
pursuits who was ton years of ago or
older consumed meat worth $18.20
during tho year 1S99. At this rato ot
consumption tho producer of Uvo
stock should hnvo received fiom tlio
pcoplo of tho United States who wero
ton years of ago and older including
themselves tho enormous sum of f 1-
000820000. Thu records however
show that tho combined value of tho
Uvo stock slaughtered on tho farm
and that sold off was but $312780424
or 1148033370 less than tho uliovo
amount showing Hint tho producer
consumes much mora meat than thu
peoplo engaged In other vocations and
Is therefore his owii best customer.
Increase of Meat Prices In Germany.
United StattB Consul John 10. Kohl
reports that butchers' associations In
Germany have within tho past two
months held many meetings to dovlse
means ot stopping the continual de-
crease In tho supply ot live stock
available. This scarcity exists
throughout the whole empire natur-
ally Increasing tho price ot meat. In
Berlin for tho month of June 1902
there was n deficit ot 1901 head of
cattle (slaughtered) ns romparcd

the last halt ot Augtiht (from tho lCth

Into tho soil In tlmo to rccelvo tho

or July but In that caso tho roots
will bo trylntf to send up shoots nt n

Asparagus Is not n deep-rooted plant
and does not roqulro to be planted
In deep trenches ns somo seem to
think. In Its wild stnlo It grows on
tho edges of marshes and has to send
Its roots down only n few Inches to
reach water. Tho roots cannot Hvo

ground near thu surface. When they

Small Things About the Orchard
In n talk to fruit growers It. Morrill
said: If I were to limo nn orchard
to lay out In an Ideal manner I would
hnvo It laid out with a view of being
ablo to do all tha work In that orchard
economically to be nblo to gather the
fruit economically. I will mention ono
thing to call your attention to what 1
mean if there Is no other reason no
climatic reason why u treo should
havo a long body I would give It a
short body because by ami by you
havo got to pruno that treo and every
foot you raise that treo In the nlr ou
havo expended ouergy from tho be-
ginning of tho pruning of tho treo to
tho end of Its cxlstcnco In going up
nnd down ladders; every root means
that pcrccntago of extrr. labor for
every man that goes up and down that
ladder thousands and thousands of
times during tho llfo of thnt treo.
That means a dlfferenco of 10 per cent
on your expense It might mako 20 per
cent dlfferenco on your cxponses.
Thoso nro Uttlo things but those aro
among tho Uttlo things that count
to much. So I say unless there
Is somo other excellent reason
why you should not do it I
would ndvocato short bodies. Another
reason Is thcro Is not tho samo lever-
ago from tho wind on tho short body
that thero Is on a long body. By tho
samo rulo I would shorten my limbs
and keep my treo compact and open
for tlio samo purposo; it Is economi-
cal. I say "open" here but if I wero
clear down lu southern Illinois proba-
bly I would not say open because tho
question of protection from tho hot
and scalding sun makes a difference.
That Is why 1 wish to.modlfy ray state-
ment and whnt I say may bo open to
criticism it taken In a different lo-
cality. It pays to have a good dairy barn.
Monoy Is well Invested In such an
Improvement. We have known farm-
ers that were well-to-do and yet all
their lives never owned a decent barn
for the housing of their dairy cows.
Barns dark In summer and cold In
wlntor aro not places In which the
cows can be comfortable or their
keepers happy while they are work-
ing around them.

Food That Rebuilt a Man's Body and
Built It Right
By food alone with a knowledge of
what food to uso dlscaso can be
warded off and health maintained
also many even chronic diseases can
bo cured. It Is manifestly best and
satcst to depend upon food to euro
rather than too much drugging.
A caso In point will iilustratc. A
well known man ot Heading Pa.
Trcas of a certain club thcro says:
"I havo never written a testimonial
letter but I have been using Grape-
Nuts about a year and have recovered
my health and feci that I would llko
to wrlto you about It for tho caso Is
"For Ave years I was a sufferer
from a dreadful condition of the bow-
els; the troublo was most obscure."
Hero follows a detailed description
and the condition certainly was dis-
tressing enough (details can be given
"Nothing In the way of treatment
of drugs benefited mo in tho least
and an operation waa seriously con-
sidered. In May 1901 I commonccd

no idea that It would In any way help
my condition. In two or three weoks'
tlmo I noticed an improvement and
thore was a steady gain from that
time on until now I am practically

the Climate Is Healthy The Winter

Writing from Stirling Alberta to
ene of the agents representing the
Canadian Oovornmont free homestead

Bbcchwood Ky. says ot Western Can-
ada: "In tho first placo wo will say that
tho summer season Is Just lovely In-

from Northern Alberta and will say
that wo found tho weather to bo very

say 'that tho winters hero aro most
pleasant healthy 'and crijoyablo to-
what thoy nro In tho States. Horo It
gets cold and continues so till spring
thoro nro no disagreeable winds. In
South Alberta it is somo warmer two
to four Inches or snow may rail and
In a few hours a Chinook wind comos
along evaporating tho ontlro snow
leaving terra flrma perfectly dry; In
fact wo did not believe this part until
wo enmo and saw tor ourselves and
wo now Itnovf what wo herein write
to ho Just ns wo wrlto It. Thero hns
