Gov. Swineford, of Alaska, in his an
nual report, estimates the value of tax
able properly in the territory at f 10,-
000,000, exclusive of the Alaska Com
mercial Company s establishment on
the Seal Islands. The inciease, he
eays, win oe rapia so soon as congress,
by necessary legislation, gives encour
agement to the settlement ol public
lands. He says there is a very con
siderable acreage of tillable land in
Southeastern Alaska with a soil that
produces the most luxurious vegeta
tioo, the fact being that no one comes
nto the territory with a belief that
either the soil or climate is adapted to
either agricultural or horticultural
pursuits, but the few experiments that
have been made leave r.o room for
doubt lliAt all the cereals, except corn,
can be grown to perfection in raanv
sections. As to slock raising, he says
the winters of Southeastern Alaska are
much milder than those of Montana,
Wyoming and Dakota, and the seasons
altogether are quite well adapted to
this industry. 1 he governor says won
derlut results are being acbieveu in
mining, showing the territory to be
rich in precious metals. The governor
says it is reported that .Mr. Ogilvie,
who- was Bent out by tlie Dominion
government last spring to locate the
boundary line between Alaska and the
Northwest territory, claims that some
of the new gold fields are in British
territory, and has suggested that on
the strength ol his report his govern
ment is likely to attempt, next sum
mer, collections of miners' license, pro
vided for in the Canadian law. The
governor says any attempt of this kind
will be resisted by the miners, a large
majority ol whom are American citi-
ei,s, and if persisted in will certainly
end in bloodshed, and suggests that in
view of the imminent danger of such
troubles, the recommendation to cou
gress in behalf f a joint commission
to definately settle the boundary line
be urgently renewed. The salmon
cod and whale fisheries, he siys, will
yield about. $3,000.000 during the year.
Every farmer should study and have
a general knowledge of the internal
structure of the horse his greatest
helpmate at labor. Ue should know,
and probably does, that of all the do
mestic animals the horse has the
smallest stomach, and therefore should
be fed and watered the of tenest.
T. W. Follice, a well-known farmer
living iieor Garfield, W. T., raised
11,000 bubhels of wheat this year, by
weight, on 200 acres of land. This is
reported to be a hilly country, but Mr.
Follice hauled en one wagon with four
horses just 7930 pounds of wheat.
Horae Feed Inc.
It makes little difference what kind
of grain a horse has been fed while in
the tjbie, if he is taken out and im
mediately driven fast or worked hard
on a full stomach he will scour nine
times out of ton. When a herse is to
bo driven rapidly a long distance or set
to work without previous preparation,
his morning meal should be very light
and he should le watered before feed
ing and not again for nearly two hours
after. He should have water and a
light luncheon of oats in the middle of
the forenoon and afternoon, and he
wi!l step along livelier all day and not
le worn out when night comes. It
does a horse ju-t as much good to have
drink ot water and a heht lunch
when at hard work as it does a man.
and he will show it in his sprightly ap-
learanee and lively gait, and when he
tomes home to Jus regular meal he
will not Rtilp down water by the barrel
nor gobblo his food like a ravenous
log. A hungry horse is like a hungry
man weak and spiritless, and the man
who keeps him at hard work when he
s in such a condition ought to be
roundly fined or soundly trounced for
cruelty to animal.
Doep fall or eJrly winter plowing
should be followed by another deep
plowing in the spring. This properly
done is the biggest half of the work in
growing a good crop. Then let it be
remembered tha deep plowing pre
vents the soil on the undul&tin? tin-
lands from washing away. Millions of
acres in the older states beyond the
Mississippi have been scratched and
scratched until their soil has washed
away and now constitutes the mud
bar at the mouth of ttie Mississippi

A writer claims that seed potatoes
are much more valuable if the sprouts
have not started nntii pluntmg time;
that the first sprous that start will
make more Vigorous plants than any
subsequent ones. lie says that where
twenty-four bushels of seed are to be
planted, the increase in the crop will
pay 30 per cent, on the cost of a suita
ble building for cold storage. He takes
great pains to keep his seed potatoes

Turnips should not be dug until late
in autumn. Like cabbage, they will
ccntiuue to grow after the firt lizht
frosts. Thev are Capable of endurine
low temperature without injury.
They require a cool storage. When
phieed in a warm cellar they become
corky, tough and unpdatable for both
man and beast. If wintered in a pit
or cellar at a point just ab rve freesing,
they will be as crisp and as good in
the spring as they were when dug.
Cabbage for winter use should be al
lowed to rennin in the field until late
in the fall. We always had the best
results when they were gathered just
before the ground fret lea. They will
stand a fairly hard frost, but not a
severe one. At best, they are a difficult
vegetable to k ep through the winter.
If stored in a cellar or root houe, at a
temperature of about 36 degrees, they
will come out fresh and sound in the
The farmer who is producing hay on
land thai cannot be easily niada to

better devote it to some other crop, and
