The followiug from the Fort Collins
Express shows something of the condi
tions affecting the lnmb feeding indus
try In Colorado: "It is beginning to he
quite n serious problem for the lnmb
feeders how to provide grain for the
feeding. Corn Is selling at $1.32 per
hundredweight, and Its importation hna
practically ceased. Oats and barley are
quoted at $1.25 and wheat at $1.10. The
feeders are quietly scouring the coun
try picking up wheat, and the competi
tion between them and the Hour mills
Is likely to bo quite active. Some re
member a winter live or six years ago
when some Nebraskans came in here
with lambs and quietly bought all the
tvhent in sight, compelling the millers
lo import grain to keep their mills go
ing. The wheat is cracked for use and
is said to be an excellent substitute
for the corn, but if oven It ennnot be
obtained the buying of lambs must per
force cease. It would seem as if those
who raised speltz are in luck. The ex
perience of those who have tried it in
dicates that it Is about, if not quite, as
good as corn, and yields of sixty bush
els per ncre are not uncommon."
An exchange tells us that the An
gora goats at the Pan-American had
wool not unlike a small Leicester sheep,
but for some unaccountable reason It
Is called hair. Speaking of the Meri
nos, It says:
"Comment Is liberally bestowed by
visitors when viewing this odd looking
breed of sheep. The conservative breed
ers aro showing the old fashioned Me
rinos as nature and the American cli
mate intended them to look. They have
had the wool pulled, or rather grown,
over their eyes until they can hardly
see; their horns have been roiled in
curl papers during the successive gen
erations, thus giving them the exact
twist necessary to properly emphasize
their beauty. These sheep were evi
dently intended to grow much larger, as
their skin Is rolled and folded over in va
rious places with unnecessary extrava
gance. This feature figures both ways,
however, as it enables them to turn off
a large proportion of leather besides
furnishing a good deal more surface to
grow wool on."
The Perfect Sheep.
An animal compact in form and low
of limb, broad before, behind and all

Results obtained at the Wisconsin
fvrnerlmont station show that there Is
practically no difference In the quan
tity of pork produced from the same
weight of wheat or corn. In four trials
an average of 409 pounds of ground
wheat were required to produce 100
pounds of gain In live weight, in two j
trials with cornmeal 498 pounds were
required to produce 100 pounds of gain.
When a mixture of equal parts of
whiMit nnd corn was fed. better results
were obtained than when cither wheat
or corn was fed alone. It required 485 .
pounds of mixed wheat and corn, half

Forming- a Sheep Trust.
Prominent sheepmen of Rawlins,
Wy., say that n movement Is ou foot
to form n sheep trust to control every
sheep ranging In Caribou county over
1,000,000 head. Tho consolidation Is
desired by a number of sheepmen on
account of the range difficulties which
ore constantly arising. There are
enough sheep in tho country to occupy
every ncre of good range, and the small
owners are contsautly clashing with
their flocks. If the trust Is formed, all
flocks will be controlled by an execu
tlvo board, and Interests will be nooled.

Unless the ground be low, so as to
mako water collect In the collar, It Is
not necessary, although desirable, to
cement tho walls and floor. Bricks set
on edge and laid with tight Joints form
a clean and satisfactory floor. Slope
tho floor so that a dralu will carry off
any water that may collect This gives
opportunity to fully waBh the cellar,
for cleanliness Is as necessary here ns

and pure nlr make the perfect cellar,
