The successful experienced poultry

pen of chickens to enable him to make
a good estimate as to the health con

When tho comb turns from its nat

even darker shade, ibo caretaker may

Since purebred males aro plentiful
and reasonable in price, there is no
excuse for using anything but a pure
bred boar. The purebred malo will
transmit his own qualities with greater
certainty than one that is not pure,

quality and excellence ; so that it pays

in mind the ideal type of boar wanted ;
then it is well to buy the nearest

let a few extra dollars on the price
stand in the way when a good boar is
found. The fact that a boar should

the disposition should be noticed, and

The farm woodlot will soon help to
solve some of the knotty problems ns
to labor upon the farm. Often the
right kind of labor cannot be kept
upon the farm because it ls not em
ployed the year round. Eel ter under

may assist materially in solving the
labor problems on our farms. When
nothing else can bo done, labor can be

hired man busy, ?~? may prevent the
horses from eating their heads off in
the barn. Throughout the winter
there are days when both men and
teams can work profitably in the forest
and the bulk of the cutting should be
done in the winter, but the cutting up
of the tops and the burning of the
brush may be done most easily after
the snow has disappeared.
By thus balancing the work of the
farm, the woodlot can be greatly Im
proved in productive capacity and in
appearance and labor and teams may
be employed profitably.
APPLY MANURE FOR TURNIPS
Fertilizer High In Phosphoric Acid
With About 3 Per Cent Nitrogen
Freshly manured land is especially
likely to produce maggoty turnips, and
for this reason most turnip growers
do not apply manure directly previous
to the growth of this crop, but depend
upon the supply of accumulated plant
food in the soil and commercial ferti
A fertilizer high in phosphoric acid,
with about 3 per cent nitrogen, should
be used at the rate of at least 1,000

LIME GOOD FOR VEGETABLES
Particularly Beneficial to Beets, Can
teloupes, Cucumbers, Cabbage
Recently there was developed a new
interest in the use of lime. Our soils
have become more sour than they
were when our ancestors used lime,
because we have been using commer
cial fertilizers, which have, as a rule,
a very souring effect. The most natu
ral question to follow ls: "To what
vegetable crop should I apply lime for
the greatest net returns?"
Recent investigations show that the
crops most benefited are such as beets,
cantaloupes, celery, cucumbers, onions,
lettuce, spinach, cabbage and cauli
flower. Many others are helped some,
while some few may be injured. One
of the greatest benefits from the use
of lime is its wonderful benefit to the
soil Improvement crops such as clo
vers, soy beans, vetch and grain cover
The truck farmers and market gar
deners throughout Now Jersey are
buying more lime than usual, accord
ing to the New Jersey State Agricul
tural college. The application of lime
Is very beneficial to many marketable
crops, but one of its great values Is
realized In an Indirect way, namely,
from the increased growth obtained in
the clover crop, especially in the case
of legumes. Furthermore, lime in
creases the organic activity of the soil,
and makes available much plant food
which the roots otherwise would not
be able to obtain. Loose soil ls made
more adhesive, and sticky soil ls loos
ened up. In short, lime is an excel
lent soil conditioner.
