WHEAT OUTLOOK IS
GOOD THIS YEAR
Charles G Juden Says Crop (o

than in 1M7.
The outlook for a record wheat crop
was never better than now, accord
ing to Charles G. Juden, the well
known farmer and land owner. Mr.
Juden. who has traveled extensively
over this section of the state, says
jthe severe weather of the past winter

heavy blanket of snow while the

According to Mr. Juden, there is at
least fifty percent more wheat plant
ed in this section of the state this
year than was planted last. "But if
the Government doesn't raise the
price of wheat," said Mr. Juden, "I
am afraid there will not be nearly so
much planted next year. Today com
is worth about as much as wheat, and
is as much as a farmer can produce
twice as much corn to the acre as he
can wheat, I don't believe there will
be much wheat planted next year. If
the government fixes a new price for
wheat, of course, that will stimulate
RIVER SHIPPING FOR
NEW SEASON BEGUN
Government Boat and Bald Eagle

FARM AGENT ASKS
HELP FOR FARMERS
Says Crops Can Not Be Gathered
If Farmer Doesn't Get
The river shipping season has been
opened and according to the announce
ment of steamboat owners the traffic
on the Mississippi will be in full swing
in a few days. A government boat
passed up the river Monday to in
stall the river lights needed for the
direction of the boat pilots.
The Bald Eagle made her first trip
of the season Saturday night, arrivinfi
here at 9 o'clock with Capt. Harry
Leyhe in charge of the boat. The ves
sel lias been revamped and repainted
in a battleship gray color remained
here till Sundaymorning. It was on
its way from the wharf, where the
repairs were made.
The Fagle Packet Co., which owns
the Bald Eagle, lost four boats during
the heavy ice drive on the Ohio a
month ago. The Bald Eagle was an
chored together with the other four
boats that went down in the ice flows
but was the only one to be saved by
the company. The boat will continue
to make its regular trips between St
Louis and Cape Girardeau.
CflDt. J. L. Stout, of this citv. .i
j veteran riverman, who is contemplat
ing returning to the river, was the
first man to board the boat, when it
reached the wharf at the foot of
Themis street. A large crowd, which
was attracted by the familiar sound
of the Bald Eagle whistle, hurried to
the levee to greet the boat on its
maiden trip of the season.
The labor shortage on the farms in
Cape Girardeau County and the en
tire southeastern section of the State
has become a serious problem that
the Commercial Club was urgently
asked by County Farm Agent Seth
Babcock to come to the farmers' res
cue. Mr. Babcock said he had toured
the county during the last few days
an had found a shortage of farm
labor throughout the county.
"The question is a serious one, he
said, "and will have to be solved. The
farmers told me that it was almost
impossible to get enough farm hands
to cultivate their lands for the fall
The majority of them told me they
could get their crops in without leav
ing any land idle, but it would be im
possible to harvest the crops, if they
did not receive help from some source."
President Harrison of the Commer
cial Club suggested that the matter
be taken up with the heads of the
manufacturing plants of the city, and
that each manufacturer release a cer
tain number of employes during the
harvest time. In that manner, he
believed, the shortage of labor could

CANDLE EVERY EGG SHIPPED
Simple Outfit May Be Made of Ordi
nary Pasteboard Box Defects
Should Be Cast Aside.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Only first-class eggs can be mar
keted by parcel p. . The shipping of
bad eggs not only will cause dissatis
faction, or even loss of the customer,
but, In interstate shipments, will vio
late the federal food law If there are
more than 5 per cent of bad eggs in a
shipment. The limit allowed, however,
hi no excuse for any bad eggs among
Iu spite of the greatest care It will
sometimes happen under ordinary farm
conditions that an occasional bad egg
will appear among those sent to mar
ket. It would be wise to candle every
egg shipped. Candling is "the process
of.testing eggs by passing liht through
them so as to reveal the condition of
the c6ntents." A simple candling outfit
may be made uf an ordinary paste
board box sufficiently large to be placed
over a small hand lamp after the ends
have been removed. The box should
have a hole cut in it on a level with
the flame of the lump. Several notches
should be cut in the edges on which the
bux rests, .to supply air to the lamp.
The box should by. sufficiently hirge to
prevent danger from catching fire. An
ordinary pasteboard box will serve the
purpose. Candling is done in the dark,
or nt least awjiy from strong li.uht, stud
each egg Is ludd against the hole in the
side of the box. when its condition may
be seen. An eg that shows any defect
should not be marketed.
SELECT EGGS FOR HATCHING
Sufficient Number of Choicest Fowls
Should Be Housed in Temporary
Pen and Yarded.
It is seldom necessary and never de
sirable to uo eg?s for hatching from
all of the fowls on the farm. A sutli
cii'itt number of the choicest fowls
should be selected for use as breed

should be housed in a temporary pen
and yarded at one end of the regular
poultry house or in jrtal!e colony
houses and returned to the main flock
as soon us the breeding season is over.
FRESH AIR VERY IMPORTANT
Poultry House Should Be Well Venti
lated and Fowls Permitted to Exer
cise m Open.
There is nothing more important to
the health of the flock than plenty of
fresh air. The poultry house must
be well ventilated and the birds
should be allowed to exercise in the
open air. When the sun shines or the
weather is mild, open the windows
POULTRY AIDS MEAT SUPPLY
No Source as Rapid or Cheap Every
Farm Should Have Carefully Cull-
ed Flock of Fowls.
Poultry is profitable. No source of
meat supply is as rapid or as cheap.
Every pound of poultry produced will
help in sending a pound of moat
across to the boys that are fighting
your battles. Every farm should have
a carefully culled flock of not less
than two hundred fowls.
