TRANSPLANTING GRAPE VINES
Operation Will Be Successful if Work
ls Done Properly-Good Time is
Early in the Spring.
Grape vines can usually be trans
planted successfully, no matter what
age, if the work ls done properly.
With vines as old as 15 years, it
would be necessary to cut back the
top severely and leave as much of a
root system as possible. It may be
somewhat difficult to take up a vine
of that age as the roots have quite a
spread. A large hole should be dug
so that the roots will be at least six
inches below the surface soil and
they should be well spread out. Fine
top soil should be well worked
around the roots and firmed down
with the foot.
Transplanting may be done either
in the fall or early spring before the
sap begins to flow.
If it is not desired to move the older
vines they can be propagated either
by cuttings or by layering, and a large
number of new plants secured at small

lost in hunting up mislaid tools, col

remedy this I have a portable repair
shop in which all kinds of tools, nails,
bolts, nuts, washers, wire, and innum
erable other things are kept, writes
Frank Ebersole of Lecompton, Kan.,
in Farmers' Mail and Breeze. It also
includes a work bench. The wheels
are from an old cultivator and any
blacksmith can cut down an old buggy
axle to suit the width desired. Fasten
the frame to the axle with U-bolts.
Make the work bench any length de

the end. The tool box has a roof over
it, both sides being hinged.
FEEDING TROUGH FOR FOWLS
Arrangement Described to Save Feed
and Protect lt From Drop
pings and Other Filth.
The majority of poultry diseases
are picked up with the food or taken
from the drinking pans. It ls diffi
cult to keep food clean and dry dur
ing bad weather where lt is thrown
on the ground or even in litter. But
this exposure is nearly overcome by
using troughs with slatted sides and
detachable roofs. The trough can be
from six to ten feet long, with the
sides five inches high; the lath slats
are two inches apart and the troughs
sixteen inches from the floor to roof.
The roof should project two inches on
the sides to protect food from the
weather. The roof ls easily removed
by lifting one end and sliding it end
wise on the opposite gable end on
which it rests. The trough can then
be filled and the roof drawn back in
place without lifting it This arrange
ment saves feed as well as keeps it
clean from droppings and other filth.
PREPARE SOIL FOR ALFALFA
Important That Preparation of Ground
Be Uniformly Good-Young Plant
of Tender Nature.
The tender nature of the young al
falfa plant makes a well-prepared seed
bed necessary. The root of the young
plant strikes down Immediately, and
lt will be seriously injured if it strikes
a layer of dry, loose soil at the bot
tom of an old furrow, or If the ground
has many hard, unbroken clods In lt.
A very good plan is to let the ground
settle for a few weeBs before seeding
It is also important that the prepara
tion of the ground be uniformly good,
as the poorly prepared spots are like
ly to fall, and these bare places will
form centers from which weeds will
spread and perhaps injure the entire
