LABOR PROBLEM DISCUSSED
Dor G. Magruder of U. S. Agriculture
Department Talks on Hired Heip.
Don G. Magruder, who is employed
by the United States Department of
Agriculture and who is doing Inves
tigation work among Missouri tam
ers, cave a talk on "System and Prin
ciples of Farm Management" Mr.
Magruder told of a few prnclpies
which have meant success to some
of the best farmers in the state. It is
his belief that labor is the greatest
problem that the farmer has to con
front and that there will always be
plenty of efficient laborers if they are
treated in the right way.
"Men who have sons to work for
them are fortunate," Mr. Magruder
said, "but men who have not sons
should furnish their hired men with
work the year around. Men that are
given steady employment are, as a
rule, more efficient than those that are
just picked up whenever extra help
is needed. Most farmers are trying
to cut down their help when they
should hire more and keep them em
ployed at profitable labor. Ability to
manage laborers profitably determines
to a great extent your ability to make
money on the farm.
"Hired men are and should be treat
ed as your equal. Try to let them do
the work which they like best as far
as possible. The three kinds of men
that can be employed with profit and
satisfaction are young men who want
to learn the business or farming, mid
dle-aged married men who want work
the year around and old men who arc
experienced and carerul and may be
employed cheaper than other labor."

DRY-PICKED CHICKENS BEST
Instructor Denwastrateg Modem Meth
od of KUIIag- and Dresslig;
It is easy to dry-pick a chicken if
you know how. Modern methods dem
onstrated by R. V. Mitchell, assistant
in poultry husbandry, to the visiting
farmers, does away with old methods
of wringing the neck and scalding to
remove the feathers.
To dry pick poultry it is necessary
to bleed the bird through the mouth
and paralyze the brain. A narrow-
bladed knife is inserted In the bird's
mouth and the veins in the neck are
severed. The knife is then thrust in
to the bird's brain. This paralyzes
the muscles which hold the feathers,
thus enabling the removing of the
feathers quickly and without aid of
The general practice of scalding
birds, the speaker said, is one of the
reasons why so much poultry of poor
quality is found on the markets. The
skin of the birds absorbs much of the
filthy water in which they are scalded.
Dealers who scald a great many birds
usually do not change the scalding
water, and by the time several hun
dred birds are scalded the water be
comes very filthy.

"Some of the principal things to be
considered in picking a variety of ap

spring frosts, sunlight and intense
summer heat All these things may
vary In one orchard. Some of the

"In choosing a variety of apples to
grow, the local conditions and the
market must be considered. If one
wants an apple to ship long distances,
the Ben Davis, because of its keeping
qualities, is good. For local trade, the

Last year in an orchard at McBalne
