The following from tbe Fort Collins
Express shows something of the conditions affecting the lamb feeding industry ln Colorado: "It is beginning to bo
quite a serious problem for the lamb
feeders how to provide grain for (he
feeding, Corn Is selling nt $1.82 per
hundredweight, and Its importation has
practically censed. Oats nud barley are
quoted nt f 1.21, and wheat at $1.10. The
feeders are quietly scouring the country picking up wheat, nnd the competition between tbem nud tho flour mills
Is likely to be quite active. Some remember a winter live or six years ngo
when some Nebrnsknns came in here
with lambs aud quietly bought all the
wheat In sight, compelling the millers
to import grain to keep their mills going. The wheat is cracked for use nnd
Is snld to bo an excellent substitute
for the corn, but If oven It cannot bo
obtained the buying of lambs must perforce cease. It would seem ns If those
who raised speltz are in luck. The experience of those wbo have tried It indicates thnt It Is about, If not quite, as
good sb corn, end yields of sixty bushels per acre are not uncommon."
Very Srrlous.
An exchange tells us that the Angora goats at the Pan-American hnd
wool not unlike a small Leicester sheep,
but for some unaccountable reason It
Is called balr. Speaking of the Merinos, it says:
"Comment ts liberally bestowed by
visitors when viewing this odd looking
breed of sheep. Tbe conservative breeders are showing the old fashioned Merinos as nature snd the Amerlcun climate Intended them to look They hnve
had the wool pulled, or rnther grown,
over their eyes until they cun hardly
■ee; their horns have been rolled In
curl papers during tbo successive generations, thus giving them the exact
twtst nscesssry to propeily emphasize
their beauty. These sheep were evidently Intended to grow much larger, as
their skin Is rolled und folded over in various places with unnecessary extravagance. 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."

be that the seed for such crops bo

wan led (or sowing, the cheap labor
in those European countries, which
have become the seed gardens of the
world, has m'ado the seed growing
industry unprofitable to Cunadh.ii
farmers or seed speeiallsls,
Our supply of foreign grown seid-i
is bought and imported principalis
by onr luijrer seed iu-*ns. Thoy may
mule their jniiclmsos cither by paying
a coitimunsurato price to reliable European seed growers, men who grow
seed from selected podlgreed stocK,
or, Ibey mny biiy scud at a much
lower price—seed that is grown b.v
men whose chief aim has been to
produce a huge quantity, independently of thu quality of the
crop it. will produce. In the former i use the seed is grown from selected plants—from roots which
havo an ideal size and form,
ami are Known    to bo true to name.
For Instance, an ideal turnip is
one having a small neck, anil top
growth.     Such a root  when  plant*
xposed bends were threshed hy the
hail. 1 mn happy to state, however,
that tho storm was only about a
mile hi wfrith, nml therefore damaged
badly only a few In the settlement,
Outside of these tho settlers report
very good crops this season. Our
llrst frost occurred on September
7th, too Into to do any damage, and
it only assisted in ripening tho po- j
tatoos earlier. I
lu 1001 wn commenced working tbo j
land on April 80lh, which wns   two I
ivoeks later thnn In 1900.   It   froze
up on Nov. 8rd, nnd snow fell     ou I
Nov. 5th.   Tbe snowfall 1ms     l-a.n
light, at New Year's having    barely I
enough for sleighing.   With the    exception of one week the weather to
date has been very soft for the season of tbe year. i
Small fruits, especially raspberries j
and black currants, have dune well. I
In the spring we put out a number !
of different varieties of apple trees j
with the expectation of lii.d nr sonic I
of them suitable to onr climiitc. Tho !
trees all made considerable growth i

During the year, 4,000 acres were j
sold to forty-live different parties, i
five of whom came from Manitoba, j
ibren from England, one from -Scot- j
land, and the remainder in in Old ;
Ontario. Since this settlement was
opened up live years ago, 41-200
last ten or fifteen yours acres of hind have been sold, and j
14li lots lu Dryden village. {
This year has been fairly favorable j
for clearing land, and the settlers
Imve taken advantage of it, as I
think more land has been cleared In
1001 than in any two previous seasons. During tbe year a new frame
school was erected on Lot 5, Con. il,
ing several root prongs, and an
excessive growth of tup coming from
two or three separate neck growths,
will transmit Its like through tho
Koed to the next crop. Seed can
be grown from surjj roots much more
cheaply than from selected roots,
because, in tho first place the mother roots aro culls, and are not as
valuable for feeding, and conscquent-
ly, ihey will produce a much larger
quantity of seed.
During tin
the seed trade hits, to a great extent, been passing from the hands
of seedsmen who devote all their
time to a study of seeds and the
seed trade, into lhe hands of local
dealers, Unfortunately, fair competition in the seed trade, is practically impossible, since tho appear*
