Garden crops will not give good
results unless the soil is kept well
cultivated. Culiivation is not in
tended primarily to kill weeds,
although this is important, but to
loosen the surface and let nir into
the soil so its to provide more con
genial environment lor the roots
!' the plants. Plants in soil which
is too wet will turn yellow, and if
not relieved by proper cultivation
md drainage' languish and die.
Too much water in soil dilutes the
soil solution, impedes the forma.
tion of nitrate, destroys desirable
soil organisms, . and permits the
development of undesirable ones
Soil which has been loo wet,
if allowed to dry and bake, offers
an . environment as uncongenial
for plants' as when too wet. Eith
er extreme, therefore, should be
If the soil is naturally wet, pro

vate as soon as it is dry enough.
As a rule, stirring the surface 2
inches will give better . results
than deep culiivation.
If the home garden is located
near the kitchen door, the hoe can
be kept conveniently near so that
odd moments can be spent in cul

In many arene of the South At
lantic and Gulf Coast States,
where nut grass abounds, some
farms are so badly infested with
this weed that their value is re
duced to almost half, and eases
t an be cited in which farms have
actually been abandoned because
of the presence of nut grass.
Nut grass is known locally by
a variety 01 names sucn nc Jap
anese nut grass, onion grass, La
haina grass, etc. As yet 110 meth
od of eradicating this grass from
our liehls after it is firmly estab
lished has been devised. Nut grass
is by far the worst pest the small
farmer has to contend with iu
Hawaii. Once lirmly established
it is not gotten rid of. Prevention
is the best cure. Keep it out. He
continually on the watch for the
first spear of this persistent weed.
Destroy the first outbreak, and
burn the nut that forms at the
base of the stem, for the nut is
capable of sending forth new
1'iowth after a Ions period of
drought or adverse conditions
Cane cars and irrigation ditches
are our chief means of bringing
this weed onto clean land.

Throughout the western plains
portion of the United States the
grain sorghums are becoming of
great importance for stock feed.
The seed or grain of these sor
ghums are similar in composition
to corn, whereas the stalk and
foliaue of the plants make excel
lent rough feed for cattle and
horses. Ncarlv all the grain sor
ghums do well under our comli
tions here. Some of Ihe varieties
(hat have been tried out success
fully are, Kafir corn, Milo Maiz
Kaoliang, Egyptian corn, and
sugar drip sorgliani. The most
economical wa.v for the small
farmer to feed these grains is to
feed the entire plant, cutting it
line with ;i feed cutter before feed
ing. A feed prepared in this way
will contain a large proportion of
grain if the sorghum is cut at the
time when the seed is past the
milk stage. The seed of grain
sorghums like corn, is deficient in
protein, ami it should not be fed
alone to dairy stock, but should
be supplemented with feeds rich
in proiein like bean meal, wheat
middlings, alfalfa meal or alfalfa.

The cow giving a large flow of
milk is working as hard as the
horse ever does, and any grain
given her should be ground or
crushed if not otherwise easy of
mastication and digestion. Corn
should be ground and roots and
grass should be chopped or finely
cut. Decause the cow takes kindly
to dry feed and everything which
enters the paunch is quickly soak
ed and softened, there seems 110
occasion for feeding slops, nor is
there any advantage from cooking
ordinary feeding stuffs.
KEEP YOUR 11EXS BUSY
JJusy hens make a full egg bask
et, something to be desired right
now when eggs are worth a dollar
a dozen. The best way to keep
your hens busy is to make them
scratch in deep litter on the lloor.
If you feed all the hard grain on
this litter, they will have to
scratch if they want to eat. As
an extra inducement throw a
handful of millet iu the litter oc
casionally. They will work hard
er than usual in order to get what
to them is a dainty.
Peanut butter, rich in fat and
protein, is not only a butter sub
stitute, but a substitute for meat.
