Tho barn may bo sldod with lG-foot
stock boards with battens or with

than 16 fcot thero will bo morn room
for hay but a barn of tho dimensions
given will contain all tho hay required
ns It will hold about forty tons. In-
stead of chutes or tho regular mon-
gers to feed hay there- Is n feedway
throe feet wldo with perpendicular
sides thrco feet high from tho Moor of
tho BlnllB and It Is floored on a lovel

Hko this Is better than mangers or
chutes as It allows a man to pass
along tho cntlro length of tho barn In
front of tho horses when feeding;
thero Is absolutely no wasto of hay
as tho horses stand with their heads
over tho hay whllo eating and do not
pull it out and drop It under their feet
nnd tho chaff Is not constantly falling
down In their eyes as when n manger
Is used that feeds from nbova.

I From tho figures given above it
might Appear to tho reader that tho
production of cattle and Bhccp on tho
1 western ranges Is on tho Increase.
Whnt tho tablo actually does Indicate
1 however. Is that tho increnBed num-
bers of stock sent to market havo de-
pleted tho numbers of cattlo nnd
sheep In tho herds nnd tho lambs left
on the range. For same time there
i havo been several factors operating
1 gradually to decrease tho numbers
' of cattlo in tho west. In somo places
' whoro thousands of cattlo used to
graze sheepmen have brought in their
I bands of sheep nnd crowded the cnt-
tlo out. Another cause which Is re-
sronslblo for tho decrenBo of both cat-
. tlo nnd Bhccp Is tho recent Interest
In "dry lnnd" farming nnd tho now
homestead law which grants to home-
Btrndcrs In tho seml-arld region 320
acres instead of 1C0 acres. In ono
1 section of northern Montana with
which tho writer Is quite familiar
within the last two years sovcral hun-
dreds of homesteaders havo taken up
' land so that nt tho present time many
thousand acres of tho best portion of
tho range hns been fenced In for farm-
ing purposes says n writer in tho
I Uural New Yorker. Some of these
' now homostendB wcro fenced in ns
enrly as 1909. Tho paBturo that year
1 howover was unusually good so that
I tho effect of the reduced ncreago was
not noticed very much. lly 1910 not
only woro there many moro home-
steads fenced In but also tho season
was nn exceptionally dry ono through-
out tho west nnd the growth of grass
was correspondingly short.
Owing to tho large numbers of stock
on tho range that has been reduced In
area nnd to the unusually dry Reason
by tho tlmo Into summer had arrived
the range had nlready been grazed off
Bhort nnd but comparatively little
grass was left for fall and winter.
Consequently In order to winter tho
stock It would bo necessary to pur-
choso nnd feed unsually largo quanti-
ties of hay. In response to this de-
mand tho prlco of hay soared. In lo-
calities whoro two years ngo $150
to $R was considered a fair price for
atfnlfa hay In tho stack the ranchers
wero Ahklng from $10 to $12 In tho
enrly fall months of 1910 nnd Rome
wero holding for even higher prlee.
Tho prlco of good mixed hay or of
Illuejolnt or Timothy hay was oven
higher than fur ntfnlfa hay. To pur-
chase tho hay that would bo necessnry
to carry tho stock through the winter
nt existing prices would In many cases
niean thnt the stock would "eat their
heads off" beforo spring. Under these
conditions tho only thing which mnny
of tho cattlo nnd sheep owners could
do was to sell off stock which under
ordlnnry conditions would have been
wintered over. This Is the reason why
so many moro western cattlo and
sheep havo been received nt Chlcngo
Kansas City. Omaha nnd other largo
markets In 1910 than In 1909.
There will be loss cattlo and sheep
on tho ranges next spring than for a
considerable number of years previ-
ously. And In view of tho conditions
which hnvo bocn stated In tho pro-
ceding paragraphs It docs not appear
likely that tho herds and flocks will
again be Increased to whnt havo been
tho normal numbers In recent years
"f "dry-land" farming can bo success-
fully carried on it Is probable that
consldorablo moro land that Is .now
unfenced will sooner or later bo
fencod In for grain farming. If this be
truo It would appear that In tho fu-
ture less of our beef and mutton will
be produced on tho free' rnnga pas-
tures of tho west and therefore more
will havo to bo produced on farms
throughout tho United States.
Saving Green Food.
When tho green food Is scarce or
Jlfllcult to obtain It pays to plan somo
way to prevent its being wnBtcd. Cut
two pieces for tho ends of n box each
24 Inches long getting proper curvo
by using a compass. Mako tho back
of the bolder of thin boards four feet
long nnd 24 inches wldo nnd nnll one
end In place hinging tho other end
and using email straps of leather to
hold it shut. Cover the holder with
coarso mesh wlro netting and hnng It
in a convenient placo high enough so
that tho fowls cannot roost on It yet
so that they can feed from it readily.
Use hangers of wood tin or leather.
This box will enable tho fowls to
pick nt tho green stuff whether It Is
clover grass or chopped cabbage
without danger of tho mass becoming
soiled or destroyed by tho chickens
scratching In It.
MOISTURE STORAGE IN SOU
Concluiloni Given as Drawn From
Experiments Conducted at tho
North Platto Station.
Conclusions drawn from expert
ments conducted nt the N'orth Platte
1. That land which Is under thor-
ough cultivation absorbs water much
moro freely thnn lhnd not under culti-
vation or which is covered with grass
or for any reasons haB a hard surface.
2. That land under thorough culti-
vation loses but llttlo water from be-
low tho first foot by surface evapora-
tion so long as tho mulch is kept in
3. That u growing crop uses wnter
from the land In proportion to tho
growth of dry matter In tho crop.
4. That land under Bummer tlllago
or thorough cultivation from Mny 1
to September 1 on the Ncbraskn sub-
station fnrm hns accumulated from 5.6
to 7 Inches more wnter In the first
six feet of soil than similar land grow-
ing n crop. The wnter so stored has
been equal to from 4 to 50 per cent
of tbo rainfall for the samo period.
The moisture content on Butnmor-
tllled land Increases below the six-
foot area and Is npparent to a depth
of nt least 10 feet.
B. Thnt water stored in tho sub-
foII to a depth of at least six feet Is
available for tho uso of farm crops
and that alfalfa Is able to draw water
from much deeper areas.
C. That nbundnnco of wnter In tho

WILLOW TREE ON THE FARM
Rapid Growth and Hardiness Makes
It Almost Invaluable on Prairie
Lands of West.
(Hy i:. O. CI1BYNEY.)
Tho rapid growth and hardiness oi
tho willow makes It almost Invaluable-
on the prairie. It Is not always a
thing of beauty and It has tho objec-
tionable feature of shedding Its small-
er branches especially when the trco
gets old and mnklng a litter on tho
ground. Howover the prnlrlo farmer
usually wants protection first nnd can
nfford to wait awhile for tho beauty.
Tho willow Is about tho only tree
which can glvo him that desired pro-
tection In a. short time.
Tho flrst planting of willows should
usually bo mado In tho form of n
wind break To obtain tho best ro-
sults two rows of cuttings should bo
planted about eight feet npart nnd
ono foot apart In rows. This
makes tho plants closely crowded In
the. rows with plenty of room between
the rows to cultlvato; and far the first
two or three yoars they should' bo cul-
tivated as regularly as corn. Tho full
sunlight from tho sides causes them
to spread sjdewnys with many
branches from tho ground up. They
soon form an Impenetrable hedge.
