SCATTER ALL MANURE
, Can Be Distributed in Cultivated
Field to Advantage.
If Fertilizers Are Spread lu Fields
and Plowed Into Soil, They Will
No Longer Give Protection
to Insect Pests.
(By C. R SANBORN, Department of En
tomology. Oklahoma A. and M. College,
At this season of the year barnyard
manures ?ind decaying waste can be
distributed in the cultivated field to a
, marked advantage. Fertilizers con
sisting of manure and decaying straw
and hay furnish excellent harboring
places for gnats, bugs and flies that not
only menace the farm crops, 'but also
live stock and humanity.
If the manure and garbage are scat
tered in the open fields and plowed
into the soil they will no longer give
protection to the farm insect pests.
The value derived from increased pro
duction on account of increased fer
tility will more than pay for the la
bor. The civic improvement brought
about by clean yards and barns will
Increase the value of the premises. The
air will be purer and the disease germs
fewer, and the infection to both man
and stock reduced to a minimum.

POINTS IN BUILDING SILOS
Huge Receptacle Must Be Airtight,
Perpendicular and Free From
Comers and Projections.
In selecting and building a silo the
following points fundamental to its
success should be kept in mind: To
be satisfactory a silo must be airtight,
perpendicular and free from corners
or projections on the inside. A round
silo, therefore, is the best type.
The doors must be tight fitting and
close together so that a mlniinum
amount of silage muse be removed in
order to open the door. A continuous
door is, therefore, advisable.
Build your silo rigid and able to
withstand strong winds. Construct it
so freezing will be reduced to the mini
