I n almost every county we notice that new ranches Aro being there is no business that provides so much for the Farmer and for the state As this and we rejoice to see it on the increase.

I propose now with your approval to offer one. It appearing to me a Good plan and within the reach of All classes of Farmers regardless of finances. Having gathered this idea from an aged experienced and practical former thought it worthy of Public mention from in source As Well the two suggestive Points to be gained by adoption. First tending to improve ment of the cattle and second toe advantage of making and collecting manure on a cheap plan. There being More Small Grain in the country than at any time since the War the query arose How Best to until Lee the Straw ? he says after the Grain has been tres had out and greatly prefers to have this done with All of it make two Square rail pens with rail flooring placing toe two 8 feet apart. Build eat a to 4 or 4>� feet High. Then connect the two by introduction of rail flooring for a to turd pen on top of the two formed. Proceed now to build and fill the 3 pens with Straw until As High As you want then shape to a Cone and Cap to turn off water or cover with boards if you have a them. You perceive i the construction of the pens an opening of 8 feet by 4 or 4>i feet High has been left Between the two original ones. This is intend of for the cattle to go in and shelter themselves from the rain and cold winds of Winter. The idea la to keep this Straw a null the gleaning of the Fields by the cattle. While doing this they will seek this shelter on Rainy or cold Windy Days. They can easily feed themselves by Palling the Straw trom the two sides and above head. The weight of Straw above will naturally sink and fill the place of that taken ont below. Hence no farther attention is requisite for feeding. Your Straw by this adoption becomes n great support to the cattle and converted into Gauno or some thing like it which is also collected by the Iraq renting of the cattle fora bedding place at night when the Straw has been eaten entirely out remove your mils and your bed of manure is of easy Access for distribution. Remember to have the opening cast and West y of can add As Many pens joined to the first one As you May have Straw to fill and cattle to shelter. If tic cattle to be sheltered exceeds the Quantity of Straw additional shelter May be added by simply placing 3 feet boards in the cracks on South Side of your pens. This arrangement placed in the Field where the Grain was grown saves hauling to Stock ads or barns in the Busy season of the year and again in the beginning of a new crop in simple of manure requiring Only Tobe distributed from whore deposited.
