FARMERS TOO CONSERVATIVE
More Knowledge and Better Business
Methods Needed in South-Urged
to Rotate Crops.
I have been in the farming business
and associated with others who dig
their living out of the ground for a
long time, and I know the conditions
and the shortcomings of the people in
this line of business.
And the thing that impresses me
most is that most of us are so apt to
go along in the beaten track, doing
the things we have been doing and
that our neighbors are doing, without
even thinking about making any
change In the regular program And
there is a good reason for this, too,
says a writer in the Farm Progress. I
When we branch out and tackle some
new kinds of crops and new ways of
r doing things, we are pretty sure to
strike a snag. Where 1 Was raised, In
an eastern state, every farmer I
knew in a radius of ten miles planted
corn and tobacco, and sowed wheat
tand oats. Sorpe made money and I
some did not; it depended on the 1
business methods of the farmer.
I thought then, and I know now,
that it is foolish for a man to go on
doing the same things the others are 4
doing, just from force of habit. And
this is notably true of the people in
most of the southern states and
those bordering on them. But it is
quite true also of many farther north.
What we need is for men to rise
above the level of the drily work and
its associations and do some think
ing for themselves. I have been in the
business most of my life, and my
opinion is that the man who gets his
living from the soil Is more "sot in
his ways" than anybody in any other
business. And there is where we
make our mistake.
For a third of a century I have been
associating with the same men who
own farms in one of the oldest
states, and I have never known them
to make any material change in their
methods. . Their crops are composed
of wheat, oats, corn and tobacco.
Their rotation is oats after corn,
wheat after tobacco. Some of them
save all the manure; all of them buy
some fertilizers for tobacco, andC
some have them for their wheat.
Almost all of them sow clover on
the wheat, and generally get a good
growth of both on tobacco land. They t
may sow some grass on the oats; but
most likely they do not. So it is very
natural that the "tobacco lots" are
keeping up, and the rest of the land
is running down. But there are
some who are wide awake, and in
some neighborhoods they have taken a
to sowing Canada peas, as well as
the common cowpea, on as much
of their land as possible, and I do not
know of a man who is a crank on
cowpeas who is not making his farm f
better every year. Some, not so many, I
sow a good many of the Canada a
field peas, which come earlier and
when there is greater need for some- 4
thing to supplement pasture for cat- t
tle or hogs.
I have used both these forage crops
with great satisfaction, and I am con- t
fident that the general adoption of at
rotation including one or both of
them will do more to cheapen produc
tion of pork or of beef and milk than f
any crop not of the grass or clover
kind. If a man is cropping his farm
to corn, wheat and oats, with some
other special "money crop," he will
find that any such crop will make
better returns planted on a clover
sod or peas than anywhere else;
no matter whether it is tobacco.
cotton or any of the market crops
that prevail in the limits of the corn
belt.
Both corn and wheat can be
counted on for the best yields when
they follow any of the leguminous
crops. And, if the owner is wise and
up to date, no matter whether his
main crop is to be corn, tobacco, po
tatoes, wheat, oats or something else,
he will finod that stimulating the soil
for the improving crop is by far the
best method to secure the largest
crop of whatever he gets his profllt
out of. In some tests I have made
with corn I found that where the
soil was a IltUtle thin in spots, and
the clover had to be helped by a good
application of fine manure, the clover
on such places was almost equal to
t the rest, and the succeeding crop was
even better. I like to see a field in
any crop, particularly of grain even
in growth, color and yield, and I can
not but feel that a man is a mighty
careless farmer who will let thin
spots in a field mar the beauty of
appearance and cut down the actual
Sprofits. And it is really surprising
how many men seem to be extremely I
careless about such things.
Perhaps, when all the young men in
the agricultural colleges get down to
practical farming all over the country,
their example will stimulate us older I
ones to adopting better ways.
Cultivator Pays.
Professor Massay says: "The man
who walks across the fields four
times, or even two times to cultivate 4
each row of corn or cotton, wastes
Senough labor in one season, If he has 4
a crop of any size, to pay for a two

TURKEYS NEED RANGE
Mistake to Confine Fowls in
Small Enclosures.
If Young Birds Can Be Induced to
Roost in Large Tree Near Poultry
House They Will Do Well
Avoid Damp Quarters.
(By R. (. WEATHERSTONE.)
It is a mistake to confine turkeys in
small enclosures. By nature they are
roving birds and get their feed over a
wide range.
Turkeys should be raised with tur
key hens because the young poults
with chicken mothers will not range
as widely as they should.
The young turkeys should be turned
out in the fields just as soon as the
dew is off the grass and should be
allowed to remain out until dark.
If they are driven into the poultry
house about dark and given a feed of
grain or dry corn meal, wet and
squeezed dry. they will. in a few days.

lowed to roost away from the poulry t
house they are likely to be destroyed t
by animals.
If the young turkeys can be induced
to roose in a large tree near the poul
try house they will do very well there,
because the tree is the natural roost
ing place for turkeys. We know a
woman in Virginia who raised about
200 turkeys every year and they all
roosted in two large trees in the yard
at the rear of the house. An inclined c
board is placed against the tree so F
that the poults can get into it when
they are quite young. Many of them
continue to walk up the plank to the
first branches even after they are
fully grown while the others use their
wings to reach the branches.
Young turkeys cannot thrive in
damp quarters. They should be well
ventilated and placed where they will
get plenty of sunshine.
Young turkeys should never be hur- 1
ried or driven home or quickly forced
into the poultry house. They are de- 1I
liberate in their movements and I
should take half an hour or ,ore to
find their roosting places and settle 1
down for the night. 1

An Ideal Farm Yard.
In figuring on the relative value of
young and old cows there are a great
many things to be taken into account.
says a writer in the Farm Progress.
The general impression is that a
young cow of the same grade is more
desirable tSan an old one, and with
the most breeds this is generally the
case. But it is better to purchase an
old cow of good grade when a moder
ate amount of money is to be invest
ed than to purchase a young cow that
never would be profitable.
The young cow of poor breed would
yield very little profit for many years.
during which time she must be fed,
while the older cow which is pur
chased for the same consideration will
yield a good proft during the few re
maining years.
It stands nowadays that a pure-bred
milk cow six years old might be worth
$60 in the market, whereas a cow of
her same grade nine years old will
bring only $40. If a buyer makes a
purchase of a milch cow for $60 the
interest at six per cent. for three
years would be $10.80. If he buys an
old cow the interest for three years
at six per cent. would be $6.20.
It can be readily seen that at the
end of that time this young cow would
be an old one. While his old cow

PEANUT BUTTER IS POPULAR
Bureau of Plant Industry issues Clr.
cular Dealing With Its Use
and How Manufactured.
Circular 98 of the Bureau of Plant
Industry. Department of Agriculture.
says:
"The growing popularity of peanut
butter as a food has led to many in
quiries regarding the methods em
ployed in its manufacture. Peanut
butter is in reality a very simple
preparation, consisting merely of
fresh-roasted peanuts ground fine and
salted to suit the taste. Several
large factories and a large number of
smaller ones are now devoted to the
manufacture of this product with
which to supply the rapidly increas
ing demand. Some of the larger fac
tories are almost models in their
construction, equipment and manage
ment, while many of the smaller es
tablishments, which have no elaborate
equipment, are turning out an excel
lent product.
"Peanut butter was first manufac
tured and offered for sale as a food
for Invalids, but the article was soon
adopted by many persons who for one
reason or another, such as prefer
ence for vegetable foods only, object
ed to the use of ordinary dairy butter.
It soon outgrew this condition of lim
ited use, and its development on a
commercial scale has been a general
product. It was never intended that
this product should be used as a sub
stitute for or a comptitor of butter.
but as a luncheon delilacy and to add
variety to the diet. Peanut butter is
a wholesome and nutritious food prod
uct and has become a popular article
upon our markets. Last year one
manufacturer used over 130 cars of
shelled peanuts in the production of
6.000,000 small jars of this food.
Other manufacturers used large
quantities, the total consumption ot
peanuts for the manufacture of pea
nut butter alone amounting during
the year of 1911 to approximately
1.000 cars of shelled goods, or 1.000.
000 bushels.
"In order to produce high-class pea
nut butter the manufacturer must em
ploy the best materials. On the oth
er hand, the use of the best stock ob
tainable will be of little avail unless
the work of converting into a salable
product is conducted in a sanitary
manner."
Health and Strength of Wool.
If the animal is in poor health the
effect on the growth of the wool is
similar to insufficient feed. Sheep
often shed or slip their wool as a re
sult of a feverish condition. Any se
vere illness extending over sufficient
time to reduce the animal in flesh will
almost invariably cause a weak place
in the wool. In the production of good.
strong wool the health of the animal
is just as essential as proper feeding.

would have to be sold for, say, $20,
and he must buy a new one to replace
her. At the end of the second three
years the young cow would be twelve
years old, and would have to be sold
for about $20. while the second old
cow would bring about the same price.
Reckoning the Interest on the mon
i ey invested, the amount would be
$21.60 for the purchase of the young
cow, and $17 for the interest on the
cost of the two old cows, a difference
of $4.60 In favor of the two old cows.
I But the large average product of the
young cow during the first three years
would no doubt in most cases more
than overbalance the difference.

New York.-Like a black visaged
tale of the days when Captain Kidd
swept the sea, was the yarn unfolded
in court in Nyack when four youths
with the lure of the sou.jern deep,
strong in them, were arraigned on a
chargo of burglary following an at
tempt to steal the $40,000 yacht of
James B. Hammond.
Two months ago the gasoline yacht
of H. R Humphreys, a member of
the Albany Yacht club, disappeared
from her moorings off Tarrytown.
Fine cruising and inland yachts were
stripped of their binnacles, glasses,
charts, canvas and various other
equipment.
Chief of Police Curran. of Nyack, had
had detectives working along the riv
er shore for weeks, and a fortnight
ago discovered a veritable pirates'
cove back of the old Flatrock Com
pany property at Nack. In a machine
shop and a rocky recess were
stored various appliances and ap
purtenances from steamboats, yachts
and sailing vessels amounting in value
to several thousand dollars.
The arrest of "Doc" Lehman follow
ed October 23, and three weeks lat
er Joseph Romano, of No. 183 Wash
ington avenue, and Edward Timber
lain, of Long Island City were made
prisoners on a charge of robbery, it
being believed they could tell much
about the pirate raids along the Hud
son. Dadinic Cuzio, of No. 101 Wash
Ington avenue, and Robert Donatk of
Sherman street and Washington ave
nue, Long Island City, were arrested,
also charged with robbery.
"Doc" Lehman, according to the
stories, was the brain,, of the crew.
He had appeared on the shores of
Long Island some weeks ago in a
fine power yacht. He told rosy sto
riees of a cruise to the southern seas.,
where he expected to find millions of
dollars worth of pearls. He confided
the theft of the yacht, and that he had
renamed her the Serpent. Angelo
Caffone and Joseph Caffone, Dominick
Cuzio, Joseph Romano, Edward Tim
berlaln and Robert Donati all fell
into the lure of the sea and started
up the Hudson with Lehman. The
Caffone boys rebelled and were put
ashore. At Troy Cuzio and Romano
left.
But the pirates, embolden by past
successes, now tried the brilliant feat
that led to their downfall. The
Lounger II. was anchored off the Ham
mond estate at Nyack and was fully
equipped for a deep sea voyage, with
gasoline and provisions aboard. She
had been left unguarded for a moment
in the night when, it is charged, "Doc"
Lehman and his trusty followers went
aboard her. Lehman was a past mas
ter at gasoline engines and soon the
motor was purring at a lively rate and
the Lounger was slowly nosing out in
to the Hudson.
Suddenly there was a rude shaking i

London.-Though now regarded as
essentially Mohammedan. the cres

crescent moon was the emblem of the
Byzantine empire and the eastern
church, and the Turks adopted it as a
badge of triumnph after the capture of
Constantinople in 1453.
With reference to the crescent the
story of the origin of the crescent
shaped Vienna roll is worth recalling.
It arose in the sixteenth century when
the Turks were besieging Vienna, and
failing to carry it by assault began
to drive mines under the walls. At
that period the city's bakehouses were
in the walls under the fortifications.
and when the mines were almost

Man Peers Into Barrel, Loses Balance
