FEEDING THE YOUNG TURKEY
?reeder Should Remember, First of
All, Never to Overfeed and Never
Give Anything Spoiled.
In feeding small turkeys, remember
never to overfeed, and never to feed
anything the least spoiled. Feed often
but very little at a time. Provide grit
and charcoal. Feed plenty of sour
milk in addition to fresh drinking
water. Mix a little wheat bran and
middlings with the cornmeal, moisten
this a very little with sour milk and
feed sparingly in low rim pie tins. In
addition feed very sparingly of a little
grain mixture as follows: Equal parts

of lime, cracked, untainted, thorough

meal and a little millet are also very
Green food in the form of finely
sliced onion tops are very good, but
must indeed be fed very sparingly.
Keep the turkeys cool, and above
ail, free from lice and in clean sur
roundings. Do not allow them to
stroll through long grass early in the
morning, thus becoming exhausted

SPROUTED OATS FOR WINTER
Excellent Green Food for Chickens
During Cold Weather-How the
Trick ls Performed.
Sprouted oats have proved an excel
lent feed for chickens during winter
months. The oats may be sprouted
In a regular sprouter, in trays by the
kitchen stove, in the cellar, on dirt
or on burlap. The trick is to soak
the oats with water, spread them out
In the light and keep them warm and
moist until the blades are from three
to six inches long.
A successful feeder soaks the oats
for 24 hours, spreads them in a shal
low box and places it in the cellar.
Frequently an inch or more of sand is
placed in the bottom of the box upon
which th.-* oats are spread.
Watch Fowls Closely.
"Watch your flocks closely. It often
happens that when mated up, the male
ls not popular-at least not generally.
It is a common thing to notice some
females that persistently and success
fully avoid the male placed with them,
and a change to another pen and male
produce a marked difference. If there
are such cases in your yards, try the
Don't Doctor Sick Fowls.
As a general rule it does not pay to
doctor sick fowls and it is much bet- j

to cure it.
Easy Flock to Manage.
On the average farm a flock of 100
to 150 hens is more easily made profit
able than one of a thousand.
At a day old pigeons are known as
"peepers;" at ten days old, "squeak

6. FERTILIZERS AND THE HOME GARDEN.
The Last of a Series of Six Articles.
A farmer that we used to know quite well always put on his garden plot
a sack of guano and three or four loads of stable and other kinds of tarn
yard manure. His garden covered about one-lifch of un acre, and was good
land to begin with. In fact, he had selected a good, rich spot of ground for
his garden. The fertilizer he applied amounted to a thousand pounds per
acre, and the barnyard manure to about seven or eight tons. Of course, he
grew a good garden, as most people do, and yet he often wondered why his
garden was so much better than other parts of his farm. He was a good
farmer and made plenty of everything, and to spare. He knew that he made
liberal applications of fertilizers and manures to his garden, but was never
quite willing to acknowledge that these made all the difference in the yieids.
Our gardens are usually the richest spots on the farm, and are so only be
cause we make them so by fertilization and cultivation. Every acre in the
average farm could be made just as rich if we tried to make it so. We do
not consider sufficiently the factors which make fertile land. We do not
strive to do Intensive farming, but rather make it as extensive as our acres
will allow. When we wish to make an additional bale of cotton, or bushel of
corn, we take in more land instead of enriching what is already under cultiva
Dr. L. H. Bailey has given in his book, "The Principles of Vegetable Garden
ing," some valuable suggestions on the use of commercial fertilizers. "The
kind and amount of fertilizers," he says, "are to be determined by severn!
circumstances: (1) The earliness or quickness with which the crop is to be
obtained; (2) the intensify of the operations to which the man is committed;
(3) the character of the land as regards tilth and texture; (4) the character
of the land as regards richness in plant food; (5) the kind or species of crops
to be raised." Whatever the condition of the land or the nature of the crop,
it must be fertilized if the gardener meets with success. Competition in the
truck-growing business can be met In no other way than by liberally fertiliz
ing the ground on which the crops grow. Dr. Bailey has wisely said that
fertilizers must be applied in excess of the actual needs of the plants, lt is
impossible to distribute a very small quantity of fertilizers over a large area.
Vegetables are such rapid growing plants that one need not fear that
much of the fertilizer will leach out through the soil on account of rain. If
it is applied close to or in the drill row, all of it should be saved. The
plants will absorb it before it gets away. The formula generally recommend
ed consists of a complete fertilizer, though the acid phosphate and nitrogen
should come from different sources, even in the same fertilizer applied at any
given time. The mixture for gardens should be composed of as many kinds
of ingredients as possible, carrying the three fundamental elements of plant
food-potash, nitrogen and phosphoric acid.
Voorhees recommends heavy applications of such mixtures to the com
mercial gardens and to truck patches. He says 1,000 to 5,000 pounds per acre
of such mixture should be applied to asparagus, and as much to beets and
turnips; less than that to peas and beans. With any amount an after applica
tion has been found profitable. This is sometimes called the second applica
tion, which is not generally a complete fertilizer, but is composed of nitrogen,
or one of the other elements alone. "The second application of fertilizers may
be composed of ammonia and acid, or other formula to suit the immediate
Garden vegetables need large applications of fertilizer because any check in
their growth produces inferiority in quality. lt is said by Dr.
Bailey that any delay in the growth of lettuce or radishes will
generally cause a pungent flavor or sharp taste that is undesir
able. lt cut down the market value. The way to remove any cause for this
is to fertilize well and properly and then cultivate. The turnip is made very
inferior when there is a check In growth. The vegetables that are thus stunt
ed seem to revert to the original type from which they were derived, especial
ly with regard to taste, and hence should be carefully looked after in regard
to fertilization and cultivation. Fertilizers should be applied to the vege
table garden as early after the spring breaking as possible, as the soil ought
to be saturated with rich plant food before the plants bogin to grow very
much. Then they will grow much more rapidly and make far better vege
tables. The second application should be made about the time the young
plants are half grown. This is as definite as a statement regarding this
practice can be made. For all prize crops, a third and fourth application is
made, and with telling effects. No one can deny that the vegetable garden
is the one place in which large dividends can be made from the use of com
