RANCH, STOCK, MINES. From present indications we calculate i that fully 200,000 header lambs will be fed in northern Colorado this winter. Prices are not yet low enough on either western or southern stock to induce heavy buying. The New Mexico grow- ers have stood off too long and many of i the Colorado alfalfa growers have sold much of their hay or are feeding it to cattle. Many feeders will start the lambs on wheat and finish on corn.- Field and Farm. There m a strong demand for all kinds of cattle. One firm on this market has an order for several thousand head of good feeders, and shippers will make no mistake coming this way. The Denver market is holding up strong and is act. ualy leading all the markets on stockers and feeders. Buyers seem to think that they get a better grade of cattle here and get them home without having them hammered all over the country through stock yards and on trains Prices com- pare very favorably with a year ago and there is really no reason why shippers should hold back their cattle.--Denver StockIfian. Some of the Colorado sugar factories have started in on the annual run with the best grown beets ever produced on the continent. In Oterio county the beets are testing as high as 21 per cent in saccharine uontent and the crop prom- it~ to be more profitable to growers than that of last year. The average per courage last year was 17~, but that re- sult will be exceeded this year. In Nob. the percentage generally goes about 12 per cent and in California 14~. The Arkansas valley seems destined to beat the world for high percentage and we can probably grow just as good beets elsewhere in Colorado.--Fmld and Farm. All the progressive ranchmen of Colo- rado are finding out that the raising of scrub stock is not a paying investment and the herds are being improved as rapidly as pouible. A two year old steer of improved breed is selling for as much ae a three or four year old scrub. The realization has also been reached that stock to be the beet must not be neg- Iootad and left uncured for during the three or four stormy days of winter. A steer will Io~ tm much flesh in that time as can be built up in a month of ordi- nary weather. The number of steers on a ranch does not always give evidence of the owner's wealth. It is the condition of the herd that counts. A small, well fed herd is better and commands more profit than a large starved one.--Field and Farm. Ascongreat will just be organizing when the National Live Stock Associa- tion meets in Chicago in December,there will be unusual interest in Washington over the meeting, as the convention is expected to pass upon a number of im- portaub measures which will be forward- ed immediately to congress for consider lion ~ith the approval of the stockmen of the country. Congress is +commenc- ing to realize that the stockmen have an organization that means something and thm time the requests of the stockmen will receive more than passing consider- ation at the hands of the nation's law maker~. Several members of the senate and house have already announced themselves as the champions of the meas- ures the stockmen desire enacted and as these measures have the approval of thei government bureau, a most interesting and beneficial aces/on of congress may be ! expected so far ae the stockmen, at least, are concerned. More in Potatoes Than In Cattle. There is one Colorado cattleman who has discovered that raising potatoes is more profitable than stock growing and he intends in future to apply himself to agricultural pursuits, the last season having won him to this way of thinking. W. Lloyd Grubb of Carbondale, is the convert, and on his "spud" profits will take his wife on a trip to the convention of the National Live Stock association in Chicago and later to Mass. and Fla., staying in the south until next March. Mr. Grubb owned a ranch, but last spring disposed of it. With a portion of the purchase money he invested in 60 aoras of land near by, which he planted in potatoes. At the end of the season he found that after deducting the price he paid for hm potato land, the expense of planting and marketing the tubers he had a net profit of $9,000. - Republican. Angora 0oat Raising. A well gra~ed forty acres will support 200 goats for two years and foothill browsing is their particular accomplish- ment. The breeding season is from Au- gust 1 to February. In Colorado a breeder selects December at the best breeding month. This brings the kids in May when grass comes out and they need little attention. Angora nannies breed once a year. One buck to fifty or seventy-five nannies is sufficient, unless a very short kidding season is desired. It is not easy to secure pure bucks, as there is more or less bunco in the busi- ness. It is desirable, therefore to buy only from the most reputable breeders.

Recommend Deep Plowing. Those farmers in the San Luis valley who have not read the Field and Farm during the last 15 years and who have not been benefitted by the oft-repeated advice about deep plowing can see where they are at this fall by simply gazing over tke wire fence of the neighbors who read, think and act. The careless far- mer who does not plow deep is in evi- dence on every turnpike and his folds can be recognized by everyone who pass that way. The scant crop tells the story of the grower's indifference and the moral is a rather sad commentary on the iiomo L;:~ld Cure which has /;ee~ per- perversity of man.

It leaves the Council Bluffs transfer de- pot at 8:05 p. m., arriving in Chicago at 7:05 a. m.--an 11 hour run. This gives the Burlington two exclu- sive fast mail trains each way daily on the Omaha-Chicago run. No 24, as the new train is known, and No. 8 are the east bouna trains. The latter leaves the transfer depot at i p. m., arriving in Chicago at 2:20 a.m. Nos. 7 and ]5 are westbound trains, the former leaving Chicago at 3 a. m. and arriving at the transfer depot at 2:30 p. m. No. 15 leaves Chicago at 9:30 p. m. and arrives at the transfer depot at 7:55 a. m. For several pears past the postoffice department's figurse have shown that of all the transcontinental mail passing through Omaha 72 per cent. has been westbound and only 28 per cent. east bound. In recent years this condition of affairs has been gradually changing, as a direct result of the west's great prosper- ity and the largely increased mails from the Orient, so that these figures are no~ correct now. The increase of eastbound mails is equalizing the volume of the carrying buslnees to such an extent that 1 tt has become necessary to put on addi- tional fast mail trains out of Omaha.- Omaha Bee.
