BERRIES YIELD BIG PROFITS
Farmers Forming Co-Operative Sell
ing Companies to Get Best
Prices for Fruit.
.When the berry season ls on in
those sections surrounding big mar
kets like Chicago. New York, Phila
delphia. Boston, Providence and the
principal southern cities, agents for
all the large commission houses are
stationed at the different railway
stations where they meet the farmers
when they arrive with their heavily
loaded wagons and make bids for
their various lots.
Of course the highest bidder gets
the berries and the money ls at once
paid over to the farmer. Next to
dairying perhans berries are the best
cash crop farmers raise.
In a little town of only 3,000 inhab
itants in New Jersey the past season
as high as 16,000 was paid for berries
in a single day.
Berry farmers are now forming co
operative selling companies through
which all their fruit is sold in common
and the money is distributed to the
growers by their own agent, who at
tends to the selling.
On an acre of rich cultivated land a
crop of berries can be grown that will
net $500 or even more. An acre of
such land should produce at the rate
of 200 bushels. A short crop is gen
erally caused by land deficient in fer
tility or plant food. Such land can be
benefited by composted manure and
turned under and top dressed. Large
amounts of commercial fertilizer is
also used by various growers and
ashes broadcasted is also a favorable
Improper preparation of the soil is
another reason for a short crop.
Quick Fattening of Poultry.
It is often desirable to fatten poul
try quickly. In fact, poultry that is
fattened as quickly as possible ls al
ways better than that which is lean or
that has been fattened slowly. The
best-way to accomplish this is to con
fine the fowls where they have but
little chance to take exercise. Give
them fine cracked corn, grit and all
the pure water they will drink. Keep
them as quiet as possible, and for this
purpose it Is better to confine them
where they cannot see out, if a build
ing of this kind is available. Fed in
this way for ten days or two weeks,
even old and ordinarily tough hens be
come tender and very fat and their
meat is so much superior to that of
fowls fattened out of doors and having
full liberty that it would seem as if
they had been changed to something
else. One who has once eaten of
poultry fattened in this way will never
want any other kind.
Prepare for Next Year.
Now ls the time to begin prepara
tion for large corn, cotton, tobacco,
cane and other crops next year. Drain
the land, build strong embankments
m the hillside;- with the proper fall,
ake care of the manure, make com
est piles, plow under all the stalks,
