QIIIliDREN eat more bread and butter when
they can get the kind of butter they like.
And they all seem to like that Golden Product

YELLOW OR WHITE CORN
Many have been the disputes be
tween farmers and scientists regard
ing the relative value of white and
yellow corn. The farmers seemed
to think they got better results from
yellow corn; the scientists could find
no difference; practical feeding tests
which went exhaustively Into the
question had not been performed.
Following the discovery and Im
portance of vitamines by McCollum
another Wisconsin chemist, Dr.
Stcenbock found the yellow corn con
tained a considerable percentage of
the fat soluble vitamlne, and that
white corn contained a little or none.
Since the green leafy part of the
plants contain large amounts of this
same fat soluble vitamlne it was evi
dent that when green feeds or le
gume hays which contained this vi
tamlne accompanied the feeding of
corn, white corn might prove equal
to yellow corn. This failure to ex
clude other feeds containing this fat
soluble vitamlne from feeding tests
comparing white and yellow corn was
largely responsible for the failure
to get conclusive results.
Five separate feeding tests at Wis
consin since this time show clearly
that yellow corn produces larger and
more economical gains when fed to
pigs not on pasture, than does white
corn. But for pigs on good pasture,
or who otherwise have large quan
tities of green feed or dried legume
hays supplied them, the difference
between the white corn and yellow
was very slight or missing altogether.
Preliminary experiments at the
same station indicate that yellow
corn apparently Is superior to white
for chickens which do not receive
plenty of fresh green feed, or alfalfa
So far as known, white corn is as
good as yellow for animals like
horses and cattle which normally get
plenty of the fat soluble vltamine
in the green forage or pasture, or the
legume hays supplied to them.
MILK OR SKIM MILK AS SOURCE
OF FAT SOLUBLE VITAMINE
While milk contains the fat sola
ble vitamlne in abundance, skimmilk
contains only one tenth as much of
this mysterious Bubstance as does
the whole milk. "Filled milk" which
is sold on the market under various
names as milk substitute, is made
of skimmilk with some vegetable fat
added to replace the butter fat that
has been removed. "Filled milk"
contains very little of the fat solu
ble vitamlne. L. A. Henke.
SURVEY AND ANALYZE YOUR
If you haven't yet made a survey
of your farm and got into the habit
of analyzing- ypur farm records,
whether they be sales or purchases;
accounts, crop yields, live stock pro
duction, labor turnover, overhead,, ex
perimental data, or what not, get
familiar with the graphic method
for presenting the facts in your busi
ness. Farmers, like business men,
are of three types: the successful,
the hangers-on, and the failures. The
first know what is going on; they
analyze their work: the second may
work hard, but to no definite pur
pose, they fail to chart their busi
ness; the failures, and their name Is
legion In farming as elsewhere, are
those who fail utterly to learn by
experience, they lack definite know
ledge of their business.

and to the best advantage. The far

COWS IDENTIFIED BY THEIR
People have long been Identified
by finger prints especially those
who have had anything to do with
police departments. And now they
are experimenting with making nose
prints of cows on the mainland, and
the method seems to give absolute
and permanent means of identifying
cattle. Substitution of inferior ani
mals for valuable ones has been
rare, but it has been done in some
cases by unscrupulous men. The
nose print system of identification
should be adopted by pure bred reg
istry associations it will absolutely
do away with the possibilities of sub
stitution. L. A. Henke.
DESTRUCTIVE MITES ON
Summer time is the chicken mite
season. If, as warm weather ad
vances, some of your birds become
pale and droopy and manifest other
symtoms suggestive of disease, look
for mites before you dose your fowls
with internal remedies for com
plaints you know not of. The possi
ble cause is this destructive para
site, which, while very minute, and
likely to hide in cracks and crevices
during the daytime, nevertheless get
in its deadly work unless kept un
This Is a real blood sucker, gray
in color except when engorged with
blood sucked from the fowl. Then
they present a reddish appearance.
Possibly the beat remedy is to thor
oughly spray every nook and crook
inside the house and out with kero
sene. Crude oil may be added to
make the spray more lasting. Do
this repeatedly, three to five times
weekly if necessary. Keeping ever
lastingly at it will finally bring re
sults sought after. (See Extension
Letter No. . 9 for treatments for
chicken lice.) F. G. Krauss.
THE VALUE OF A HEN
According to careful records kept
by Prof. Krauss, a hen should re
turn to her owner a net income of
$3 a year. His flock of 60 hens pro
duced 8,460 eggs (705 dozen) in one
year, an average of 141 eggs per
hen a year. These he sold at an av
erage of 70 cents a dozen, a total
of 1493.50. The total grain feed for
the year amounted to 6,500 pounds
costing $216. For labor, interest on
investment, depreciation, etc, he
charged off $97.50 for the year, leav
ing a, net profit of $180 from 60
hens for the year, or $30 per hen.
Scrub hens would probably yeilded
him rfo income at all.
Interesting Facts Gleaned from the
U. S. Census of Hawaii
The following are the acreages of
some of the leading crops in Ha
waii in 1919 as shown in the 1920
Sugar cane, harvested, 123,165;
corn 6,027; rice 5,801; coffee 5,687;
fUrae croprf 850; potatoes 405;
sweet potatoes 232; other vegetables
The acreages of less important
crops were as follows:
Peanuts 75; cotton 14; soy beans
15; cassava 23; awa root 68; straw
Fruits are listed as numbers of
plants or trees, and are as follows
Pineapples 160,145,278 plants; ban
anas 190,267 plants; cocoanuts 7,197;
trees; papaias 21,675 trees; oranges
2,372 trees; mangoes 1,736 trees;
poratlons, who have distributed their
apiaries all over the territory wher
ever good pasturage could be found.
The honey crop of Hawaii for 1922
is estimated at about 600 tons.
About half the honey produced in
Hawaii is "honeydew honey," not
(nectar honey), and the other half
Is gathered from various kinds of
flowers, chiefly the algaroba (kiawe).
BUTTER AND CHEESE
The expense of running a dairy is
greater than on the mainland, be
cause so much of the feed has to
be imported, as well as all dairy
equipment. This not only makes
milk prices higher here but makes
it very difficult to compete with Cal
ifornia and New Zealand In butter
and cheese prices. The result Is that
nearly all the butter and cheese
used here Is imported from the out
side, although there is some manu
facture of butter within the terri
tory. It is doubtful if local produc
tion could displace imports because
of the inequality In costs of produc
tion. The 1920 census figures show
our imports of dairy products to
have been as follows:
Butter (and substitutes), U. S.
1,326,762 lbs; foreign 26,227 lbs.
Cheese and substitues, U. S., 351,
712 lbs; foreign 7,158 lbs.
Condensed milk, U. S., 4,367,078;
foreign 31.178 lbs.

Corn production increased 37.4 per
Rice production increased 29.3 per
Bean production increased 8.8 per
Coffee production increased 102.2
Soy bean production decreased 37.9
Tobacco production decreased 99.9

The first honey bees in Hawaii
were brought here from California
in 1857, previous attempts to bring
colonies around the horn having been
unsuccessful. Commercial beekeeping
on a considerable scale dates back
to about 1900, but at present the in
dustry Is not profitable, and there'
fore is temporarily not being push'
ed as vigorously as It was two years
ago. In 1920 there were over 15000
colonies, producing about 750 tons
of honey per year and 20 tons of
beeswax. About tour-fifths of this

Complete Power Equipment
for Cane Growing
ALWAYS ready to adopt a system that will
produce sugar cane at less expense, planters
appreciate the opportunity to use the rapid,
inexpensive Fordson. This was made possible
by the development of special cane tools by
the OLIVER CHILLED PLOW WORKS
specially for the Fordson.
One tool is a cultivator; the other, a middle
breaker. Both are extremely simple, yet are
made of such strong materials that they are
destined to be long-lived. Wide wheels
adapt them to wet soils.
These machines are equipped with power
lift and a depth-adjusting screw, easily oper
ated frcm the driver's seat. So easy are these
adjustments made that it is not necessary to
slow down for either one.
Oliver cane Implements for the
Fordson perform the many operations neces
sary in successful cane production. If you
haven't seen the new OLIVER CANE TOOLS,'
let us explain them to you.
