The Idea Is generally prevalent that

While the lucre.ise In population
from ls.'Hi to 1MHI was nliout 17i per
cent., the production of butter for tin1
census year of 1NKI exceeded that of
ls"sl by I'M per cent. This increase

Kiuanatlng from some other 'sources
the figures given by Mr. Alvord might
reasonably be subject to doubt, but
Mr. Alvord la not oue who would know
ingly send forth false Information nor
base an official statement on mere
guesswork, aud being lu a position to
know whereof he speaks, hi figures
may be relied upon as correctly repre
sent'.ng the situation. But It will be
a genuine surprise to nearly all who
have glveu the matter a thought to
learn that S per ceut. of all butter
produced In this country was, as late
as 18'JO, made on tha farm. Here Is
whit he baa to say on the subject:
"The moat noteworthy fact lu con
nection with the production of butter
on farms la that, iiothwlthstaudliig the
great extension of the creamery aya
tent aud the decline In the amount
of butter annually exported, such pro
duction baa Increased even more rap
Idly than Hipulatlon. To go back to
the census of IHTiO, It I found that the
otal production of butter on farm In
nit was ai:t..i4...:;Ki pound, or i:i.!U
pound per capita of population. Iu
ISiXI the amount reported was 4 ."!,
1S1.87J pound, or 14.112 pounds per
capita. In 1870 the amount reported
was 51 l.ob'J.iKl pounds, which gave
au average of only Y.X pounds for
each Inhabitant. Vp to this time (here
had been no creamery butter reported,
but lu Inst) the production of farm but
ler averaged 1.YB0 pounds for each In
habitant, and that of creamery butter
0..VS pound for each Inhabitant, the
total average being thna ItioH pound.
At the eleventh census, however, the
production of butter on farm alone
averaged 1(1.33 pounds per capita of
the population, ami such had been the
increase that the total production of
butter averaged no lesa than 10.24
Niuud per unit of the population."
A no creamery butter was reported
until 1, when ouly a little more than
one-third of 1 per cent. (.(Oil, to be ex
act) was thus produced, It follows that
of the IS per cent, shown by the elev
enth census, nearly all was gained dur
ing leu year. There Is no doubt that
the ratio of gain baa been much great

Drylnir Wheat for Seed.
There la often an Injury to winter
wheat seed from heatlug after the grain
Is gathered, which Is always done In
hot weather. If tho straw and gralu
are slightly damp when put In the mow
or alack, It will almost surely beat.
This beating may uot be Injurious lu
itself, but It leaves the grain damper
than before, aud It ouly dries out when
cold weather comes. So It often hap
pens tbat when winter wheat of the
present year'e crop la used as aeed, It
often la sown when very nearly aa
damp aa It was when garnered. Such
wheat germinates slowly. It Is already
expanded with moisture, and so does
not swell la the soil a It should. For
this reason many old farmers who grow
winter wheat prefer wheat a year old
for aeed. It Is, however, no better
than If as good as this year's wheat,
which ha been thoroughly dried and If
possible without any beating lu Its
moist state. Put the seed wheat In
bundle on scaffolds where It will dry,
spreading so that It will not heat. Then
thresh It out with the flail and put It
In a fruit evaporator for twenty-four
hours. By that time the grain will
seem much lesa plump than new wheat
ought (o be, but It la all the better seed
Why Horses Slobber.
A correspondent of the American Cul
tivator expresses the belief that the
reason why the aecoud growth of clover
makes horsea slobber Is because of Its
seeds. Clover seed at present and pros
pective prices Is altogether too dear
feed to be given buret, even the mo:
valuable. Hut, aays tho Cultivator, wo
think our correspondent mistakes in
ascribing the slobbering to the clover
seed. Neither do we think It Is the sec
ond grow th of the clover Itself. Many
years ago we made an Investigation,
and found that the slobbering only oc
curred where the lobelia plant, ofteu
called Indian tobacco, was found uilxcl
with the clover. This loliella Is, aa
every farmer kuowa, a most powerful
emetic. Even on laud w here It la abun
dant, It doe not get large enough to go
Into the first crop of bay. But after the
first and heavy clover crop la removed
the lobelia makes a very rapid growth,
aud It blue flowers a re often very plen

The Tasael of Corn.
The flower of the corn plant Is di
vided luto two portion, tbe tasael, or
male section, which furulshe the poll
en, and the silk, which la the female
portion of the flower, which receives
It. Kach thread of silk carries some
of the pollen to the ear, and there a
1 gralu of corn I formed. The profusion
of llk Is so grest that the gratua of
corn are compacted on the ear a close
ly as possible. Wbn this Is not the
fact It Is more likely due to (he drying
up of the lassel, so that not enough
pollen Is formed to fertilize all the silk.
If there I either a very dry or very
wet time when the tassel should tic dis
tributing imiIIcii. these defective ear
will be plenty. Heavy rains In oue
case wash the tllcii off, aud the dry-
weather cause the tassel to shrivel
and bivome worthless. Tbe blossom
ing Is exhaustive. If the season Is Just
right one iiiarter of the (assets pro
duced would make a full crop of well
developed ears. Hut as In every crop
there are more or less defcvllve ears.
It Is unsafe to cut them out. The suck
ers usually lassel later, aud for this
reason they often Increase the corn
crop on (he main stalk after the earlier
tassels have dried up.

grow rye to save a few bundle to be
threshed by baud, aud use the straw
for bludlug com stalks. V cut corn
much earlier than we used to do, and
It Is wise to do so. In using green corn
stalks for binding the tops of stooka.
perhaps two or three will break, wast
ing stalks, sidling pailauce aud taking
time, all of which would bo saved by
having a wisp of lung rye straw to use
In bludlug the tops. There la still an
other advantage of the rye band. They
will hold, whllo If a dry, hot apcll come
a good many of the stalk bands will
break, letting the stock fall apart,
aud when rain come most of the stalks
will be found In the mud. Those who
use rye band for binding corn stalk
will never after be wlthoul them, even
If they have to grow a small piece of
rye every year for (hi purpose alone.
It la natural at planting time to put
aotuo composted stable manure lu
melon bills. The soli Is then rather
damp and too cool for the melons. The
manure dries aud warms It, which
give the aeed an earlier start than
It could get without the manure. But
alsiut this time the man who baa mel
on with manure In the bill wishes he
had not pul any (here. No matter bow
well couiHHited the manure, It will uot
hold Ita moisture luto midsummer
heats. The beat way to water these
melon hllU Is to make deep holes down
below the manure lu the hills, and theu
slowly fill aud refill (hem with water
until the ground la well saturated.
Then If tbe holes are tilled with loose
soil, and the surface Is kept mellow to
prevent evaporstlon, the melons will
not suffer for lack of moisture In even
the dryeat (lines.
Pub.tltntee for Wheat
Possibly one of the reasons for the
low prices of wheal the paat few years
la that o many substitute, have been
found for It as human food. We still
use a great deal of wheal, but In cities
especially wheatcn bread la lesa the
staff of life that It uaed to be. The uae
of oat meal has Increased, and It dally
form part of the nutritive ration, and
very good nutrition It la, too. We use
far more fruit than formerly, and also
more isitatoea. The latter are not so
good lu nutrition aa wheat, and for
(hi reason their Increased uae la not
for our advautage In health aud
strength. Like all other starcy food,
potatoes are difficult to dlgc(, and
should only lie eaten lu moderation, ex
cept by (hose whose dlgestloii Is strong.

The feet of foals very seldom re

Horses' feet from this cause alone fre
