THE FARMERS' CIRCLE. 1
THE FARMERS' CIRCLE. 1 (BY ONE WITHIN IT.) Foot-and-mouth disease has re-appeared arrain in Scotland. This is bad news for the agricultural community, just when it was hoped that the fell malady had been effectu- aliv stamped out. The Board of Agriculture was informed of the outbreak on Friday, and two hours after the intelligence, a travelling inspector, stationed at Edinburgh, was iu Leith investigating the locus in quo. After a thorough professional examination, the case was decided to be foot-and-mouth, and on Saturday orders were issued by the Board, scheduling certain districts in the Lothians, and restricting the movement of animals. The infection is supposed to have been brought from the Continent, where it is exceedingly rife, by butchers who have recently been engaged by foreign salesmen to cut up animals according to English C, fashion. The carrying of the germs of the disease by human agency is one of the un- fortunate possibilities of infection. RURAL AFFAIRS. The weather of the past week has been all that couid be desired for seasonable farm work, as well as for the ripening of crops Harvest operations are in full swing ir the earlier districts of the country, and will be now, more or less steadily, until the last sheaf of the 1892 crop has been gathered in. There is, however, every likelihood of a pro- traeted harvest, because many districts of the country are from two to three weeks later than usual as regards the ripening of the crops. Let us hope it may not be a tedious one in the sense in which that ex- pression has been used in recent years. The weather seems settled for the present. Farmers should cut down the oat crop in good time, and Jet it mellow in the sheaf. The same remark may ateo apply to wheat. Barley should be allowed to get perfectly yellow and ripe before being cut but it should be handled carefully to avoid injuring y n or detaching the head. There is an old cus- tom in some districts of the country of leav- ing it in swathes. This, practice is as im- prudent as it is old-fashioned stookiug light off the reaper is much the better way of securing the cereal crop in every respect. Root crops are growing hopefully under the influences of the genial weather. A srood autumn would doubtless ensure a good yield of bulbs, both of mangels and turnips. But these crops are very late in some parts, and rather irregular over the country generally at present. The potato crop will be a good one. There is little or no disease that we hear of, and the young crop is turning up well. It, too, is rather late, especially where early frosts are wont to be felt, and an un- usually fine autumn would be heartily wel- comed on this account. Pasture grass has improved of late. It is anything but abun- dant, save in Derbyshire and other noted grazing districts, and beastial demands upon catch or autumn forage crops will be un- usually early and heavy this year. Farmers have done wisely who anticipated this circumstance and sowed a few acres of tares or rape for consumption during the latter end of the grazing season. Live stock are doing well. It is much to be regretted that both pleuro-pneumonia and foot-and-mouth disease have re-appeared. Every effort should be made to support the Board of Agriculture in confining the area of infection, and effectually stamping out these pesti- ferous maladies. FARMERS' INCOMES. Are such things known ? Well, they have been in times past, and we hope they may be again. That they have disappeared for the present, however, hardly requires sub- stantation. Agricultural produce of every description has diminished far below profit- able market rates, and in the circumstances it cannot be wondered at that farmers are concerning themselves about the income tax and other channels of petty expenses. Our correspondent is evidently unaware that, contrary to the old custom, farmers are no longer compelled to pay income tax under schedule B—that section of the revenue papers which is meant to indicate the small profit they derive from their farms-unless they have actually made a profit. It is not .L long ago, as a Yorkshire daily points out, since the law assumed that farmers always made profits, and they are practically charged upon their rents, plus tithes, and certain other charges which were estimated as rent. Now, however, when a demand note is received by an occupier of land, if he is aware of his non-liability, his proper course is to notify the same to the surveyor of taxes of his district, who will duly for- ward him a notice of the next appeal day, unless an unwarrantable delay takes place before acquainting the surveyor. He will also be required to fill up a form of account, showing the receipts and expenses of the year, together with data showing approxi- mately the increase or decrease of the live and dead stock in hand. Formerly a balance-sheet, including the valuation, was required; now, however, valuation is not asked for, but the data we have referred to instead. This account must be sent to the Government official before the appeal, and sustained on the appeal before the Commis- sioners by the production of books of account, which may be asked for. Now it is evident that here is another reason for a proper keeping of accounts. A pocket-book and a bank-book are not sufficient, neither is a letter of account alone. This may be sup- plemented for the sake of the occupier him- self by a valuation, which should be care- fully taken if possible by some neighbour! well skilled in prices of live and dead stock, on the 1 st January or such other day as may be selected. It may be added that the officials require a sum to be included as a receipt representing the consumption of home-grown produce during the year. No provision, however, is made for the inclusion of interest on capital invested in the farm, for personal services, or for wear and tear, or loss of capital. An account representing extracts from a legitimate and well-kept account-book is almost invariably accepted.

BIRMINGHAM CORN, THURSDAY.—English and foreign wheat slow, at 6d decline maize and barley, 3d lower; oats unaltered; beans, 3d dearer. MANCHESTER CORN, THURSDAY.—Trade has been quiet during the week, at reduced prices for most articles. At thia market the attendance was limited, and only a moderate business transpired. Foreign wheat 2d to 3d per cantal, and English 6d per quarter, lower. FI mr about 6d per sack cheaper. Oats favoured buyers. Beans unchanged. Peas receded Id per cental. Maize must be quoted 2d to 3d per cental below the currencies of last Thursday. LONDON CORN, MONDAY.—The wheat market opened with concessions refused, but before 1-30 there were a few sales made at 6d less money on both English and foreign sorts. The Baltic refuses con- cessiona on cargoes, and so do some wholesale houses on the old Corn Exchange. Plenty of wheat is, how- ever, obtainable at 6d under last Monday's terms, so that the market cannot fairly be quoted steady or even unchanged. Malting barley 6d and malt Is down on the week, but on grinding 3d was the limit of decline. Maize was unchanged in value, American firmer than other sorts. Oats sold fairly well for a hot August day, and value was about the same as before. Flour was 6d lower for English and American makes. The market closed fully 6d lower for wheat and barley, but old prices continued to be realised for maize, beans, and peas. A few houbes allowed 3d I: decline on oate, but this reduction was not general. Linseed was 6d dearer on the week. BIRMINGHAM CATTLE, THURSDAY.—Good sup- ply slow trade. Beef, 5 £ d to 7d; mutton, 5td to 7id; lamb, 6d to 712-d-per lb. Bacon pigs, 10s 3d to 10a 6d sows, 8a to 8s 6d—per score. BRADFORD WOOL, THURSDAY.—There is no im- provement in our market to-day. Prices all round are fairly firm at late rates, with the exception of Lincoln àogs, which are a trifle easier. Eusiuess, owing to the effects of late failures, is strictly limited to hand-to-mouth purchasers, and is also interfered with to-day by the foggy weather. Staplers do not push eales, and it is hoped next month will bring an improvement.
OSWESTRY. ACCIDENT IN THE CRICKET FIELD.-On Monday, James Lloyd, in the employ of Mr A. Wynne-Corrie, was oonveyed to the Oswestry Cottage Hospital, suffering from a blow that he received from a cricket ball whilst batting in a match between Park Hall and Whittington, a few weeks ago. He is progress- ing satisfactory under the care of Dr Blaikie. THE ENGLISH WESLEYAN CHURCH.—This place of worship has been closed for some time in order that it might receive a thorough eleansing,repainting, and to have some repairs done to the roof, which had been thoroughly carried out by Mr W. H. Thomas, builder, at a cost of about < £ 55. Services in connec- tion with the opening of the church were held on Sunday week, when the attendance morning and evening was large. The Rev W. Starr, of Liverpool, was the preacher, the collections amounting to < £ 7 5s, which, with the proceeds from the sale of work, would about meet the cost of renovation.
LLANSAINTFFRAID. THE RESTORATION OF LLANSAINFFRAID CHURCH. -On Thursday a sale of work, in aid of the restora- tion fund of Llansaintffraid Church, was held in the National iSchoolroom, which was very tastefully draped for the occasion. At No. 1 stall Mrs Hayhurst presided, assisted by Mrs Storey and the Misses Hayhurst. No. 2, Mrs and Miss Leslie. No. 3, Mrs Lloyd's stall (The Vicarage), who was assisted by Miss Minnie Evans, Penymaes; Miss Lucy Lloyd, The Hayes, Oswestry Miss Bridget Jones, Lian- rhaiadr Vicarage; and Miss Gertrude Lloyd, Llan- saintffraid Vicarage. No. 4 stall, at which Mrs Richards (Glan Virniew) presided, assisted by the Misses Richards, Mrs Gordon, Glasgoed; MissPank- hurst, Glascoed; and Mrs Hughes, Oswestry. No. 5 (the refreshment stall) was under the superintendence of Miss Evans, of Colwyn Bay, assisted by Mrs Kent, Miss Edwards, Miss Katie Evans, Miss Watkins, and Miss Lily J ones.-The bazaar was opened by Mrs Mytton, of Garth, soon after three o'clock, when there was a fairly good attendance, which was in. creased as the day wore on. The articles contributed, speaking generally, were choice and good, and their number could have been shown off to even greater advantage in a room double the size. During the afternoon amusements and music were performed. On Friday the bazaar was opened by Mrs Marshall Dugdale, Llwyn, Llanfyllin.
SHREWSBURY. THE GREAT FLORAL FETE.—The grand show and fete, held in the Shrewsbury Quarry, under the auspices of the Shropshire Horticultural Society, was held on Wednesday and Thursday, and was more successful than ever, surpassing even its own splendid record of past successes. The show was of greater magnitude than any previous one in its display of flowers, fruits, vegetables, and shrubs; while in ful- ness, variety, and excellence of entertainments, it was, if possible, more astonishing and attractive than ever before. The weather also was, on the whole, highly favourable, despite some measure of dullness and slight occasional showers in the earlier half of the second or people's day, and the vast crowds of visitors appeared to inspect the various departments of the show and to witness the multifarious elements of the fete with unbroken comfort and unalloyed enjoyment. Everything passed off most pleasantly and successfully, and the committee of management are to be cordially congratulated on another material and financial triumph. It is estimated that on Thursday no fewer than forty-five thousand persons passed the gates into the grounds, whioh, we must not omit to note, were looking their very best. The receipts at the entrance gates on the first day of this year's fete were £ 434 19s 6d, and on the second day £ 1,635 14a 8d, making a total of < £ 2,C70 14s 2d, and yielding an excess of .£305 6s 7d over the corre- sponding receipts last yea, It is most likely that the grand total of receipts, arising from ali sources, at this year's show-gate money, tickets, subscrip- tions, and the letting of booths, &c.-will reach the really magnificent sum of < £ 3,500.

THE FARMERS' CIRCLE. 1
LAND REFORM. Speaking to about three hundred farmers and others at the annual luncheon of fhe Central Banffshire Farmers' Club at Keith, on Tuesday, on the occasion of the agricul- tural show, the Duke of Fife dealt at some length with the land question. All matters: connected with the land, he said, had naturally a very deep interest for him, and he always endeavoured to approach them j with a total absence of prejudice. He quite appreciated the policy of olden days, which was at all costs to add acre to acre because land was the most apparent form of pro- perty. In these days this was no longer the case, and he was convinced that the division of the country into properties of various sizes, some large, some* quite small, and others of moderate size, was more de- sirable than huge overgrown estates, which were the pride of a former generation His views on this matter were formed and ex- pressed by him many years ago, l(Hlg' before the so called land reforms were as fashion- able as they now were with men of all shades of political opinion, and he commenced to act upon: that as soon as he possessed any land of his own (applause). Ha believed that his action at the time caused some astonishment, as it was not in exact con- formity with the usual traditions and prac- tice of large estates; but lookiag back on the last twelve years, he had no cause to regret his action, because he believed that a wider distribution of land would, tend to dispel class jealousy, and to promote national stability by giving a real interest in the soil to a larger number of the community. Yet it was manifestly to the advantage of the country and to the farmers, for obvious reasons-, that landlord and teaant should exist, and, although their relative numbers might vary in different localities, the system was one which was likely to continue. Therefore, it was highly desirable that they should all live together in a friendly manner, and he was glad to think that in that part of the country it was so. As in trade, capital and labour could best prosper when both agreed, so in agriculture, when all classes concerned pulled stoutly together, could the mother of all industries furnish a full return to those who were concerned in its working. NOTES FROM HEREFORDSHIRE. Excessive as the rainfall was during the latter half of 1891, it by no means compen- sated for the deficiency of the previous half oi f he year and although during the first tv months of the present year it was slightly in excess of the average for those months, yet the land was ill prepared for the- serious deficiency experienced from that date until the 30th of May,, when a rainfall of i'02 inches, followed by a week of almost tropical heat, greatly tended to dispel the gloom which rested on the countenances of all who had been anxiously looking forward for the seasonable change usually ushered in by the merry month of May to replenish their exhausted hay stacks up to that date the pastures had presented the sterile appear- ance of mid-winter. But alas! a low tem- perature and sharp nightly frosts followed that hot week until the 29th of June, when another 1-02 inches of rainfall again replen- ished the earth, and brightened the pros- pects of its cultivators, and great improve- ment was manifest in,allthe crops, although the low temperature continued. On some early lands the quick motion of the mowing machine greeted the year, and some hay and fodder was secured in prime condition, but the opportunity for doing so was quickly checked, and on the 17th of July the dress- ing of 1.37 inches of rainfall again tended to cheer the drooping spirits, and induced the hope that a warm temperature and brilliant sunshine would follow; but vain is the hope of man when used against the will of his Maker. On the nights of the 19th and 20 th of July sharp frosts again checked all kinds of vegetation—producing red rust in wheat and other corn crops, the full effect of which can only be revealed by the use of the thrashing machine; the hops, too, suffered severely, and rendered the expensive process of repeated washing necessary. A large acreage of ground has been cleared for very small stacks of hay and fodder, but fortunately in prime condition, where not too much hurried. The root crops are grand, and the orchards promise to yield better than was anticipated. The price of stock, both fat and store, continues very depressed yet with abundant autumn keep, and fair prospects for winter feed, there must soon be a demand for store stock. Harvest a fortnight late; always to be dreaded. HARVEST ESTIMATES. The Agricultural Gazette publishes about 370 estimates of the crops, representing every county in England and several of the Welsh, Scotch, and Irish counties. The general tenour of the estimates pretty closely confirms the anticipations expressed from time to time, except that wheat, owing to the effects of blight in some districts and mildew in others, comes out below average in more instances than we expected. Barley, as expected, is represented as the grain crop of the season, while oats, in spite of recent improvement, come out considerably below average. Beans show up even worse than oats, the failure of the winter crop having affected the estimates, as well as defective podding in some cases and aphis attacks in others. The pea crop varies greatly, and is put at barely an average, or referred to doubtfully in many instances. Although it comes out below average in a greater num- ber of returns than that of the favourable reports, we believe it is very little below. As for hay, the few favourable reports are nearly all from the North of England and Scotland. Potatoes are represented as a splendid crop on the whole, although the appearance of disease is indicated in too many districts. On the other hand, the majority of the reports in which the subject is referred to state that the crop is free from disease. Apparently there is much less I

disease than there was last year, and we believe that the crop will be better. Turnips and mangel both come out slightly below the mark, but are referred to in many cases as improving. In some districts, however, finger-and-toe is mentioned in respect of turnips, and the need of sunshine and heat for mangel is dwelt upon. Comparing our percentages for the two years, we find wheat considerably worse this year, barley a good deal better, oats about the same, pulse crops and hay more deficient, potatoes better, and roots decidedly more promising.
