PAYS LARGE PROFITS
Pinto Bean Growers of Newfllex
ico Making Money.
Form Organization, Eliminating Local
Buyers Who Were Rapidly
Destroying Industry Through
"The pinto bean growers of this
state have earned $82,000 in additional
iprofitsN from their 1919 crop through
?their co-operative marketing associa
tion Initiated by* specialists of the
?bureau of markets, United States de
partment of agriculture;" Was the
recent statement made by a New Mex
ico pinto bean grower.
Before the association was formed
the beans were purchased by local
buyers who practically controlled the
market and therefore paid almost any
?price they chose. These buyers were
rapidly destroying the possibilities
that offered in the marketing of pinto
beans through the lack of care In
grading and packing. Choice re
cleaned pinto beans was a technical
?trade name that came to mean noth
ing, for the beans often contained
splits and dirt, as a result of which
jthe trade could not depend upon the
quality of the product.
Now the fanners do their own
marketing through the association.
.Sixteen warehouses, properly equipped
.with grading and packing machinery,
have been erected. The beans are
carefully graded and then packed in
new, even-weight 100-pound bags,
which are neatly sewed and branded.
:The association demands clean cars
from the railroad, and in loading the
sewed ends of the sacks face one way.
The association believes in the bureau
of markets' proved theory that when
a buyer throws open the door of a car
he ls Instantly Impressed if the con
tents present a clean, orderly appear
ance. The New Mexico association
has 1,500 members and marketed 250
carloads of beans last year. It Is con
stantly calling on the bureau of
markets for assistance, which ls cheer
SHEEP REQUIRE PURE WATER
Regular Daily Supply ls important in
Winter as Well as Summer for
Some farmers seem to think that
sheep do not need water and will do
Just as well without it. Although not
heavy drinkers, sheep certainly need
a regular daily supply of water in
winter as well as In summer. If they
cannot get clean water they will find
dirty water, or in winter, will eat
. Experienced sheep ' men see to it
that water for sheep is always and
easily accessible. The best of feed
ing with hay and grain Is useless with
out water. The body suffers without
water, the appetite is lessened and a
poor, run down animal is the result
Besides water, the sheep need salt.
All these things are necessary to keep
sheep in good condition.
SYSTEMS OF^ FEEDING FOWLS
Dancer of Bowel Trouble Lessened
Where "Dry" Plan ls Used-.
Also Saves Labor.
There are two systems in use for
I the feeding of fowls, in one of which
all tt-e feed is given dry and in the
other of which one or more of the
daily feeds consists of a moistened
mash. For convenience they may be
termed the "dry-feed" and the "mash"
systems, although in the dry-feed sys
tem a dry mash is often fed. Dry
feeding Is used by many where lt ls
i not convenient to make and feed a
. moistened mash. The greatest advan
tages to be derived from the dry sys
: tem are the saving of labor and the
lessened danger of bowel trouble re
', suiting from sloppy or soured mashes.
PROPER TIME TO CUT WHEAT
When Straw Has Lost Nearly All of
Green Color and Grains Are
Not Entirely Hard.
Wheat may be cut with safety when
the straw has lost nearly all its green
color and the grains are not entirely
hardened. If cut sooner than tbis
. shriveled kernels will result. If left
standing until fully ripe a bleached
appearance, due to the action of the
elements, often results, and loss from
shattering may ensue. Wheat that ls
.fully ripe is also more difficult to
handle. Where the area of wheat Is
large, cutting should begin as early
as it can be done safely.-Farmers'

ment of Agriculture.
CONVENIENT STABLE RAKE

that the rake has two working edges;
the toothed edge ls used to rake loose
