* STUMPS-BRUSH-WEEDS-GRASS. *
We pay a larger tax every year for
stumps, brush, weeds and grass than
is required to support our municipal,
county, State and federal governments,
to endow all the colleges and educate
all the youth of the land; and we get
no return. A stump not only occupies
valuable space, but it prevents the
use of improved implements for better
and more rapid tillage of the soil. The
cost of farm labor is on the increase
with the certainty that this will con
tinue till the equation of wages on
the farms and in the town or city is
more equal. The remedy for higher
priced labor on the farm is the use of
more and better teams and imple
ments. If the day wages on the farms
of the South advances from 75 to $1.50
then each farm hand must plow, p,lant,
and cultivate twice as many acres in
a day as he did before and this is an
easy problem. But the stumps must
go, and the farmer who does not try
to get rid of them will soon be a
back number. The stump farmer pays
about $3 an acre every year for the
privilege of having stumps in his
fields. In addition, there are general
ly a few feet of untilled soil around
every field stump which produce foul
weeds and grasses to seed the land.
What has been charged against
stumps applies with still more force to
trees, shrubs and brush patches in the
field; dig, burn, destroy; they are
natural enemies of the farmer.
Straighten out the sides of the field,
square up the corners and avoid the
short rows as much as possible; they
Increase the work of tillage.

In cultivation they are comparatively
free from weeds and grass, and that
they become foul is due to faulty man
agement on the part of the farmers.
It Is not difficult to discover the real
causes. First, careiess cuitivation,
which allows weeds and grass to ma

highways, the brush patches, the fence
corners and the pastures, and they are

things, but in one thing too many of

the world, they never fail to raise a
crop of weed and grass seed large
enough to seed their own fields and
The cost of this universal weed and
grass seeding amounts annually to
more than $5 for each acre in corn, and
$10 for each acre in cotton. In 1909

sippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South
Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Vir
ginia, there were 40,965,000 acres In
corn and 30,693,000 acres in cottpus
which would show a yearly loss of
over 511 millions of dollars. This loss
can be greatly reduced by intensive
cultivation continued as late in the
season as possible and by mowing the
roadsides, the fence corners, the bor
ders of the fields and the pastures In
June and in August At first it seems
like a waste of labor, but its beneficial
effects soon become apparent.
A persistent war on weeds and grass,
stumps and brush, in the fields is one
of the great progressive movements
necessary to progress in agriculture.
