Importance of a Soiling Corn.
If -there Las ever been any question as to the
important of every dairyman, not poscssing a
silo, of providing sonic soiling crop, last summer's
fcxperitnee throughout the dairy districts should
have removed every doubt... The low tan dally
to the dairy interest during the dry season, more
iutense and destructive some years thaa others,
reachee a fabulous sum. This dry heated term,
supplemented by the advent of flies, which are a
terror to the bovine mother, makes it doubtly
necessary that some palatable, succulent food
should be produced to meet this emergency. It
is not only the great loss of milk during this
dry season, but, as every intelligent dairyman
will concede, it is practically impossible for cows
that have shrunk in their flow of milk to recover
the shrinkage. The writer, from his own ex
perience, believes that the loss in this direction
can be reduced at least one-half in other words,
ten cows properly caret! for .during the year will
produce more milk than twenty oows cared for
in an ordinary way. If this is true, is it any
wonder that there are so-called dairymen who
are ready to proclaim that dairying does not pay,
thereby injuring the most important industry, to
the largest number of people in the country.
The demand is not neccessarity far more oows,
but for better ones, remembering that the great
and imperative needs is the man behind the cow.
A three hundred pound cow with a one hundred
round man will prove a failure. The ounce of
prevention i the remedy. Now is the time for ac
tion. Erery dairyman is not provided with a well
filled nlo to meet the dry and fly season that coo
fronts him. '. Every dairyman can and should
plant on a well fertilized piece of land one, two
or more acres of fodder corn, in proportion to the
sise of hu herd, for soiling purposes. - Th'w, prop
erly ted, will keep up the flow of milk during
this seison of ordinary loss aud disaster, and start
them iuto the winter fitted for profitable work.
This soiUng crop should be planted at intervals
sufficient to have the corn to reach maturity in
such quantities as the herd demaud. We feel
confident, if oar dairy farmers will try, this ex
periment, it will prove to be the most profitable
and satisfactory crop on the farm.
We hope that large numbers will try it. We
have found common corn entirely satisfactory;
someof the sweet varieties are, however, excellent.
Drill it in rows about Jthree feet apart. After
preparing a good seed bod, and if properly - put
in, it will scarcely ever fail. Cut it as neeeded,
day by day, allowing jt to wilt a little before
feeding.! - Feed liberally to cows in a full flow
of milk, and we are not afraid to risk our repu
tation on thesuocess of the enterprise. Supplement
this with some pumpkins and mangel wurzels
for tall aud winter feeding.

Those for the year 1900 hee Just been
furnished, and thy mako a very fa-
Torable showing, la that year, for the
first time la the annals of the United
States, the country's mineral output
passed the $1,000,000,000 mark. , Thli
fact was seen several months ago to
be probable, but the final and revised
figures, which ara bow made public
from Washington, give the actual onV
put officially. The precise figares are
$1,067,603,G0. Aa there was a gala la
severs! of the items in 1801, the figures
for the year just ended will undoubted
ly, when they are'compiled and revised
in the aggregate ten or W months
hence, make a very cBconragiar ex
hibit. As increase ia the United States
gold production was made in 1000 over
1899, and a'gsin Is "01 over 1M6 hat
been scored. There haa been-4 slight
Ineresie, t0, ia silver. 'Bat the pre
dove metals arc far from being at the
head of the list of the country's mln-e-a!
prodpcte. The eoal production ot
the eooa'Ty1 ia 1900, for example, was
8W,0O0,0OOr as compared with $79,000,-
000 for gold and $30,000,000 for silver.
Ia 1890, (or the first time, the eoal prod-
act ot the United States passed the
mark for the British islands, and this
country took the first place among the
eoal producing localities of the world.
Coal and iron ia 1900 accounted (or
more thaa. half of the total of the
country's aggregate metallic product,
or $300,000,000. Of course, in aggre
gate mineral production no other coun
try in the world makes any close ap
proach to the United 8tatea, saya the
6C Louis Globe-Democrat. 1 Moreover,
the growth ia the output of the Unit
ed States is greater thaa ia scored
by any other country. Appareatly
there is bo limit to the possibilltiee ia

'power and pretensions. One of the
latest of these exhibits, th Lon
don Daily Mail's Year Book for 1902,
haa a aeries of tables which show the
particulars in which the United Statea
leada the world. In the matter of
wealth, according to that authority,
thia country haa a long lead over Eng
land, which stand second on. the list,
and which stood first until a compare'
tively recent date. The lead, indeed,
ia greater than these figures show, for
the wealth of the United States is
larger than ia here given. Reduced to
terms of Amcrieaa money, the wealth
ot thia country in 1900 in the London
statistical publication is put at $82,-
000,000,000, while the United King
dom'a ia $30,000,000,000, France's it $48
000,000,000, Germany's ia $40,000,000,
000 and Russia's $31,000,000,000. This
estimate for the United States, accord
ing to the St, Loula Globe-Democrat,
will be found to be too low. From the
preliminary figures which bav been
furnished from Washington it appeara
certain that the aggrcgaU value of
thia cont:y'e property fa iOOd will a
placed by the census authorities ia
their final figures above the $90,000,
000,000 mark instead of the $8J,000,-
000,000 given in the London publication.
In the proportion of national debta to
national wealth the United States, ot
course, makes an even better showing
than it doea in the item of wealth alone.
While the ratio of debt to wealth, aa
given by the London Mail' Year Book,
1.4 per cent ia the United Statea, it
ia alx per cent, in the United Kingdom,
$.1 per cent, ia Germany, 11.1 per cent. ,
la Bussla, and 12.8 per cent, in Franc.
The real ratio, so fsr aa regards the
United States, would be evea better
than thia, for thia country wealth, as
before mentioned, is in excess of the
figures given by the Londoa annuel
That publication's figures ef pig iroa
production, which are for 1900, arc
more nearly correct, aad they show, a
ia th other particular, a long lead for
thia country. The figure are 13,780,
