*1 Happenings of Moment to the Man Behind the Plow
6ROWIN6 CORN AND PEAS
"1 he State College of Washington
has just published two posters on
the growing of corn and field peas.
The posters are written by Professor
Severance and embody the essential
principles to be followed in growing
these crops as follows:
Washington is well adapted to
corn. High 'ands, low lands, non
irrigated lands, irrigated lands will
grow corn if proper seed, proper
soils,proper cultivation and properly
selected locations are used. Avoid
1. Secure acclimated seed.
2. Select warm, rich, well drained
3. Where rainfall exceeds eighteen
inches, plow deep in fall and harrow
in early spring.
4. When rainfall is less than
eighteen inches, summerfallow as
5. Cultivate shallow frequently in
spring to conserve moisture, kill
weeds, prepare good seed bed, de
velop available plant food.
Note —Moisture cannot be con
served after it has escaped. A good
seed bed cannot be prepared from
dry, cloddy ground.
1. Plant early, but so as to es
cape late spring frosts. The date
will vary from early April to the
middle of May.
2. Plant in hills 3£ to 4 feet apart
each way, 3 to 5 kernels per hill, or
same amount of seed in drills. Cul
tivate with harrow until corn is 3
or 4 inches high. Always catch
weeds when small.
4. Keep soil clean and surface
loose throughout summer. Level,
shaliow cultivation is best.
Do not cut corn until it is fully
glazed (unless whether for
silage or for grain.
Select next year's seed from stand
The agricultural college wishes to
co-operate with the farmers in test
ing this crop. It has matured suc
cessfully on the college farm for the
past ten years.
GROW FIELD PEAS
Field peas are one of the best crops
to grow where adapted. The crop
makes rich hay or soiling food;
makes rich grain, especially for hog
feed, and enriches the soil.
Peas do best in a cool climate
with considerable moisture. At
home all over western Washington ;
do well in eastern Washington
where rainfall exceeds eighteen to
twenty inches, except in wet draws
or on clay points.
1. Plow deep in the fall, if possi
ble, leaving the ground rough; or, if
it is impossible to fall plow, plow as
soon as the soil if fit to work in the
spring, medium depth, harrowing
2. Work up deep mellow seed-bed
as early as the ground is fit to work.
3. Seed as early as seed bed can
be prepared, using grain drill to
set seed deep —four or five inches.
4. Seed two bushels of peas per
acre, if seeded alone. Seed four to
six pecks of peas and one busbel of
oats if mixture is desired for feed.
Pea vines are less likely to lodge
and be damaged for feed when
seeded with oats. Seed the oats
about one week after seeding the
peas, setting the drill to seed the
usual depth for oats. When seeded
on same date, oats are apt to hold
down the peas.
5. Make very rich hay if cut
when oats are going into the
"dough" stage and the first peas
are full grown. Cure like clover
6. May be fed off profitably by
hogs, turning in when first peas are
full grown, confining the hogs to a
small patch at a time, to avoid
7. If cut for seed, the beat results
are u3ually secured by cutting when
thefirst pods are beginning to shell.
7. If cut earlier, too large an ad
dition will usually be quite green.
8. Yields on the state farm have
ranged from two to four tons, cured
hay per acre; $25 to $30 in pork,
or, 20 to 40 bushels per acre, usual
ly, if threshed.
The State Experiment Station,
Pullman, Washington, desires to co
operate with a certain number of
reliable farmers in testing this crop.
Write for particulars and for bulle
tins on peas.
THE KENNEW3CK CJUMER. KENNEWICK.WASH 1
CUT OUT THE MUD SLINGING I
The followers and opponents of
the fruit marketing plans in use in
the Pacific Northwest as represented
by the Northwestern Fruit Exchange
and the North Pacific Distributors
continue agitating the marketing
question, and a great deal of not
only argument but plain mud sling
ing is still being indulged in. There
is no particular value here, in our
opinion, in going into the merits or
demerits of the various argument
which at present seem to be ex
tremely voluminous in the Pacific
Northwestern publications in some
sections. California Fruit Grower
is of the opinion, as it always has
been, that the more or less co
ordinate operation of several differ
ent marketing plans and agencies
and firms is to the advantage of all
concerned, and it is better that
there be several than that all hands
unite in one so far as the general
community is concerned. We do
not, however, see that there is any
thing gained by a continual news
paper agitation of slander and villi
fication, and are of the opinion that
more harm than good is done there
by. - The Pacific Northwest, how
ever, is comparatively new in the
fruit shipping game and must go
through this phase of it, which Cal
ifornia did some years ago and sur
vived. —From an editorial in the
California Fruit Grower.
The Washington Children's home
Society has undertaken the great
task of finding good family homes
for all of the state's wholly depend
ent children. It has placed more
than 500 of such children in a single
year. One of its fundamental prin
ciples is to avoid the separation of
brothers and sisters, if possible. As
many as six children have been
placed in one home. Recently two
brothers and one sister went into
one home, and a brother and sister
together have been sent to a home
near Pullman, and two sisters to a
home near St. John.
At the Spokane Receiving Home
the society now has several sets of
brothers and sisters needing homes.

of Christian charity or service to
humanity than giving the shelter of

nity believe them to be the best rem
edy ever made for dyspepsia and indi
gestion. That is what we think, too,
because we know what they have done
for others and what they are made of.
We have so much faitn in them that
we urge you to try them at our risk.
If they don't help you, they won't cost
you a cent. If they don't do all that
you want them to do—if they don't
restore your stomach to health and
make your digestion easy—just tell us
and we will give back jour money
without a word or a question.
Containing pepsin and bismuth, two
of the greatest digestive aids known to
medical science, they sooth the inflamed
stomach lining, help in the secretion of
gastric juice, check heartburn and dis
tress, promote regular bowel action,
and make it possible for you to eat
whatever you like whenever you like,
with the comforting assurance that
there will be no bad after effects. We

made for dyspepsia and indigestion.

is better to dig two small silos.

The Haddgns were stationed at the
mission of Yungchowfu, where Dr.
Hadden was a missionary for seven
years. They were separated in March,
1910, by the Shangsha riots on the
Yang river, a tributary to the Yangtze
river. Mrs. Hadden was carried to
Hanghow, where her child was born
on St Patrick's day. Dr. Hadden was
carried up the river, losing knowledge
of his wife's whereabouts.
He wrote many letters, none of

he walked from place to place through

association helped farmers to sell
