MAKE WAR ON TUBERCULOSIS
More General Use of Intradermlc Test
Is Expected to Speed Up Cam.
paign Against "TB."
Recognition of tho Intradermlc meth
yl of implying the first tost prepara
tory to accrediting a herd ns fre
from tuberculosis, has been announced
by the bureau of animal Industry. Uni
ted States department of agriculture.
The more general use of the Intrader
mlc test is expected to "speed up" the
federal and state co-operative cam
paign against Til. In the subcutaneous
tnetlmd. heretofore generally used, the
tuberculin is Inserted beneath the skin
and it Is necessary to take three pre
liminary records of the animal and
at least seven soon after the test. In
the Intradermlc method Insertion Is
made between the layers of the skin
and. while this requires a greater de
cree of skill In the operator, only one
later inspection of the animal may be

absence of the disease.
The federal recognition of the Intra
Jennie method provides, however, that
herds undergoing it successfully must
pass a i v.jcutaneous test within a year
before they can be accredited as free

MILK DIET IS INSUFFICIENT
Calves Cannot Properly Digest and
Utilize Milk Unless Accompanied

Heciit research work done by the
Iowa agricultural experiment station

old. After this age the two calves

of scant nourishment and went down,

FUEL SAVED BY GOOD ROADS
Wear and Tsar on Trucks and Amount
of Gasoline Consumed Shown in
Recsnt Ohio Test.
A test conducted In Ohio recently
to determine the saving in gasoline
from running oyer a good road an corn
pared with gas consumption over bad
and medium-grade roads, disclosed a
surprising difference. Five new array
standard "A" trucks with seven
different types of road service, showed
a gain of six miles per gallon of fuel
between the best and worst typos of
roods. All the tracks were empty dur
ing the test.
The trucks loaded showed that the
poor road took seven timet as much
gasoline per mile as the good one.
The test results showed an average
of 6.78 miles per gallon over a dirt
road In good condition, 7.19 over fair
gravel, 0.39 over good gravel, about
tho same over fair bituminous macad
am and good brick roads. 11.44 over

The saving to the motoring public
In gasoline alone would amount to
millions of dollars annually. Perhaps
equal to this would be the saving In
tires, which Is considered as Important
an Item of car upkeep as Is gasoline.
Calculating the saving in wear and

trucks and also the Item of time lost
by poor roads, adequate highways are
undoubtedly a sane investment.

CULVERT IS EASILY CLEANED
Much Trouble Obviated by Invention
of Grate or Iron Bars, Resting,
Often culverts under roads and
paths become clogged with debris and
frequently give trouble because they
cannot be readily cleaned. The de
vice illustrated obviates all this diffi
culty. It consists of a grate of Iron
bars supported by crosspleces which
rest In notches or upon the surface
of stonework or concrete, says Ameri
can Agriculturist The bars and the
crosspleces should be of heavy enough
material to support any load that will
be driven across the grating.

was made Is In a footpath, so the bars

quarter of an Inch thick The cross
pieces are of the same material, bent
at the ends and riveted to the bars.
All that Is necessary to clean- such a
culvert is to lift the grating and do the
work with a spade or a hoe.;

UPS AND DOWNS, IN PEACHES
Prospective Crop Estimated to Be
About 77 Per Cent of Normal
It is said that the law of compensa
tion works both ways if the rich man
gets his Ice in the summer; the poor
man gets his share in the winter. Av
erages of peach production appear to
follow the same rule, according to the
estimates just published by the bureau
of crop estimates, United States de
partment of agriculture.
Barring the possibilities of further
disaster, the commercial peach or
chards of Georgia and North and
South Carolina will produce fairly
heavy crops. California is scheduled
lor a bumper crop, and several other
fctates will not be far below their 1910
average In car lot shipments of peach
es, but these good prospects are more
than offset by the frost damage In
flicted upon the orchards in other
states. Texas has been badly hurt,
and so, also, have the Arkansas, Okla
homa, Missouri, and Tennessee or
chards. The New England crop is re
ported ruined, and Washington, Utah,
and Idaho report severe winter kill
ing. To some extent the prospective

Distributing Peaches By Machinery.
crop Is still further diminished by the
decrease In acreage devoted to com
mercial peach orchards.
Altogether the bureau of crop esti
mates figures the conditions on April
1, 1920, to be about 77 per cent of
normal. There is a slight decrease
from this figure during the growing
season, usually about 10 per cent,
which will presumably reduce this ear
ly estimate to 67 per cent when the
crop Is harvested and the final count
taken. Last year the April estimate
was given as 84 per cent, and the de
crease was 9 per cent during the grow
ing season. In terms of bushels the
crop last year figured 29,240,000 bush
:3s of fruit. Allowing for the normal
20 per cent decrease In 1920, the crop
this fall will be short of last year's
production by about 3,000,000. bushels,
plvlng a total of 26,461,000 bushels for
the coming harvest.

In setting out young fruit trees the
variety tag is often left tied to the

by Its variety name in later years.
This, however, . generally causes more
trouble and injury to the tree than

years old will be seen with the wire

Ot the WASHBURN Piano it may be said without egotism,
that, by all ordinary standards, it belongs in the highest class.
There are few pianos outside of those instruments laying great
