FREE SEED TESTING IS
) GRANTED TO FARMEBS
Of Kentucky How to Prepare
Samples and Amount Re
quired Of Each.
It may not be generally known to
farmers and others In KentucTcy
that the Kentucky Agricultural Ex
periment Station is well equipped
to test samples that may bo submit
ted with a view of learning their
qutMlty, either as to purity or germ
ination. A new laboratory for thiB
work has been planned and is now
nearlng completion. When the In
cubators and other appliances aro
established, it will be one of the
most complete in this country.
The Station has already won a
reputation for work of thls sort
not only in this country, but in
Europe, and those sending samples
can be assured that they will be
tested well and as promptly as the
facilities will permit. Samples will
be examined in the order In which
they are received.
TttJ get fair tests It is necessary
thMhe samples be taken from a
bulBot after a thorough mixing of
thHeeds. Samples of- Kentucky
blJgass and rye-grass should
coPun two ounces each. Samples
of red clover, sapling clover, alslke
clover, alfalfa, orchard grass, Eng
lish blue-grass and rye-grass should
contain two ounces each. Samples
of Kentucky blue-grass, Canada
blue-grass, red top and timothy
should weigh one ounce each. The
samples should be put In a stout
paper envelope, not In ordinary cor
respondence envelopes because
theo aro easily broken In the pos
offlce and let the seeds escape. .Put
your complete address, plainly writ
ten, on each envelope sent us and
jrward to the Division of Entomol-
gy and Botany, Kentucky Agricul

-ways state whether both purity and
germination tests are wanted.

SAYS TROUBLE IS NOT
ALWAYS WITH THE LAND
But With Farmers in Failing
To Adopt the Proper
' Judson C. AVelllver, Washington
correspondent of Pnrm and Fire
side, writes In the current Issue of
that periodical an interesting ac
count or the United States Bureau
of Soils. Ho says in part:
"Dr. Milton Whitney, chief of the
soils bureau, Insists that proper cul
tivation and rotation will mako
run-down soils produce again as
well as ever. 'The trouble is not
with the land, but with the people
farming it, and tholr methods,'
stoutly declares Dr. Whitney.
"The Bureau of Soils Is trying to
ttnd out all about the changes In
soils that are wrought as a result of
cultivation. It declares that the
mineral and metal basis changes
very, very little. The products of
vegetable and animal growth, on
the other hand, change greatly and
modify soil qualities very much.
One will bo useful and benevolent,
another vicious and harmful.
"A certain soli, once producing
excellent crops of wheat had be
come "exhausted." Cow-peas
ground very fine were applied and
it was found thoy had restored the
soli; It produced a good crop, and
"did the thing three times in succes
sion; then the soil lapsed back Into
its first condition of non-productivity.
"Why did the cow-peas have that
effect? The Bureau took llke pro
portions of' potash, phosphoric acid
and nitrates the plant-food ele
ments of cow-peas and put them
Into the soil; and It didn't produce,
the effect of restoring Its fertility.
The point seemed to be that these
various elements, mixed together
and applied to the ground, didn't
have the genuine cow-pea effect.
"Doctor Whitney In a recent ad
dress gave this explanation of the
operation within the soil of various
agents introduced through rotation
of crops. He seems to have a con
siderable backing of authority and
experience In favor of his theory
that fertilization is, at least, much
less necessary, If scientific rotntlon
Is followed. His bureau's problem
Is to develop the correct scientific
rotation for various solls and cli

SOMETHING ABOUT THE
MANAGEMENT OF HOGS
A pig Is nothing more nor less
than a machine whose function Is
to convert farm products Into sala
ble meat products. Very often he
Is rated as a scavenger, fed only
because he squeals, and Is looked
upon merely as a convenient source
of disposing of refuse products.
There Is no animal that responds
to feeding and decont treatment
more promptly than the prg, and he
ia a dependable source of profit If
given average care and fair treat-
ment. It must be remembered
that tho most economical gains are
made When the animal Is young, I.
e., under 9 months of age, and that
gains are costly after full growth
and maturity are reached. Pigs
gain most economically when from
4 months to 10 months ot age, and,
generally speaking, It costs more to
put on the last 100 pounds of
weight of a 300-pound hog than It
does to produce the first 200 pounds
of body weight. A feeder that does
not secure an average sain of ono
pound per day from birth with his
pigs, either has Inferior specimens
or does not feed and care for them
In tho most up-to-date manner. Tho
most profitable tlme to market a fat
hog is when he weighs from 225
to 250 pounds live weight, and he
should tip the scales at these fig
ures when 8 months old. Larger
gains are common with our best
feeders. The pig that will develop
Into the heaviest quality hog, In the
shortest length of time, and make
the best gains from a given amount
of feed fed, 13 the Ideal pork-making

for her husband. But how she
does enjoy cooking for an outsider
who praises her efforts!
A man who bragged that he
cussed, smoked, played poker and

who wanted to reform him. Now
he has added booze drinking and

A Kansas Judge established a
precedent last week by marrying a
couple In a broomcorn field. The
couple had eloped and found the
Judge at work In his field, as he

them upon condition that they
would work out the charges In that
field, which they did.
