Boxing, Ancient and Modern.
Although boxing and pugilism, oc
cupying much attention at tha present
time, were popular In classlo Ureeoa.
they seem to have died out In th
middle ages, and It Is not until tha
end of the seventeenth century that
we find references to boxing as a
regular English sport Boxing, as dla- :
tingulsbed from pugilism, may be said i
to date from 1S6G, when the Amateur .
Athletic club was formed, and tha ;

INJURY BY WHEAT -
Head of Barley and Wheat Injured
(By F. U WAS'IKL HN.)
Last year a great deal of timothy
seed in the northern states waa de
stroyed by tha species of army worm
known as the "Wheat-Head" worm.
The Injury was most severe on high
sandy soil. In every case Investigated,
however, it was found that the pest
had its origin In old timothy fields
that had been allowed to run four
years or more without being plowed.
After the timothy heads are eaten.
the worms turn their attention to
oats, wheat or corn; traveling In an
army from one field to another hence
They uppear to be somewhat sub
ject to the attacks of parasites; and
are undoubtedfy. In common with
other caterplllers, devoured by pre
daceous beetles, by birds, and die on
account of fungous or bacterial dis
eases Nevertheless, these factors
simply serve to keep them within
bounds, and It Is absolutely necessary,
when a farmer la confronted with a
horde of these worms stripping his
timothy field, and preparing to march
to grain fields, to know- what to do
and to realize that whatever Is to be
done must be done without delay In
order to be effective.
Fall plowing and the rotation of
crops, sovereign remedies for many
field-Insects, are valuable here. If
farmers would plow up their timothy
fields at least once in three years, It
would be a help in connection with
this or any other Insect which found
there an undisturbed breeding ground.

PLAN FOR STACKING
COWPEA HAY GREEN
Barn Room Is Not Always Avail
able and Muoh of Forage
Crop Is Lost.
It is so very difficult to cure cow
pea hay In the shock or windrow,
and when curod It la so difficult to
keep In a stack, that very Utile of. it
Is put up out of doors. Barn room Is
not always at hand, therefore much
of this valuable forage crop Is lost or
indifferently cared for. By following
a simple plan, however, this hay can
be cured and kept in stacks without
losing any shattered leaves or hav
ing It mold, according to II. F. Grin
stead In the Farm and Home.
Set a pole In the ground where you
want a stack. Throw a little brush
around the pole to begin stacking,
then stack the pea vines as toon aa
wilted around this pole, making the
stack not more than eight feet In
diameter. When you have reached a
height of four fee nail two strips
six feet long to the pole at right
angles, then begin tacking on these,
and when you have plied on another
four feet nail another pair of the
strips. Don't get on the stack, as
your weight would broak through.
When you reach the top, cover with
a stuck cover or grass hay. In a day
or two the hay will Bettle, leaving
an air apace under each of the sup
ports so that air can circulate freely.
The hay will not mold and can be fed
from the stack. This plan Is prac
ticed successfully In the south, where
pea hay Is a ataplo forage crop.
FREE RANGE NEEDED
BY YOUNG CHICKENS
Gardens are in Such Shape in
Fall That Fowls Will Do More
Good 'Than Injury.
Where hens or chicks have been
confined In small yards during tha
spring and summer they should be
turned out on free range now, If pos
sible. A yard which has been In use
all the season will by this time need
attention. In most cases It Is abso
lutely bare, and well contaminated.
The chickens In It are not receiving
a fair chance.
Gardens are In such shape that the
chickens will do them little damage
now, and to turn the hens loose will
reduce the cost of the feed bill, as
well a6 make them happy. In case
several varieties an- kept a good plan
is to turn er.ch flock out at least one
or two days a v.'jf k, or better still, a
few- hour.- each day. This method

HEAD ARMY WORM

worm might not originate In timothy,
but be found beginning Its depreda
tions on some other crop. Its Im
pression, therefore, appears to be rf
pendent upon proper farm practloa.
In cases of serious Infestation, as la
the present Instance), when a farmer's
crop Is threatened by these worms,
and the land Is tn a condition to allow
It, be should plow one or two deep
furrows across the Una of march of
the worms, the steep side of the fur
rows toward the crop to be protects!.
The worms collect In the furrows and
can be killed with kerosene, or better,
with crude oil.
If post-holes eight or ten Inched
deep are made at Intervals In these
fur rows, fhey form traps Into which
the worms fall. Or the ditch rr fur
row may be partially filled with straw,
which may bo wet with kerosene and
burned Bfter the worms have collected
Fields where they are entering the
soil to go through the resting stage
should be plowed harrowing Is not
sufficient. Co-operation in the attack
Is necessary; for there might remain
on one man's place enough worms to
lay waste the entire neighborhood
later on If every one did not take
preventive measures. Clean culture
along fence rows and elsewhere is
desirable, since the worms also feed
on plants other thr.n timothy, and
may breed. on wild grasses by the
roadside. The presence of this worm
on cured hay does not poison It for
stock, as some farmers have supposed.
IS BIG ESSENTIAL
Principle Must Be Put Into Prac
tice In Order to Make Suc
cess in Fruit Growing.
(By M. N. BDOOKHTON. Mlchlraa.)
Most small fruit plants perpetuate
and multiply their species In two
ways, through the production of seed
Seeds are produced In the fruit of
plants. Nodes are the knot-Uke pro
tuberances that appear on the stems
of the plants, with the strawberry,
terns are known as runners.
With this plant new fruits are made
as the runners lengthen. Leaves
spring upward from the nodes and
the roots strike downward Into the
soil very quickly If the soil Is loose
lied raspberries and blackberries
propagate In much the same way
the roots acting as runners.
If allowed to follow the natural
course of Its being this purpose of Its
life will be prosecuted to the fullest
possible extent without reference to
the quality or quantity of fruit pro
duced. It is by placing restriction upon the
plants In this matter of reproduction
that larger crops of better fruit are
The plant has only a certain amount
of energy to use, therefore reduce
the number of seeds to be maturod
and the entire energy of the plant
Is directed to the building up of the
remaining seeds and seed receptacles.
In order to make a success in grow
ing fruit of whatever kind, the prin
ciple of restriction must be put Into
practice, for plant restriction Is one
of the essentials of fine fruit growing.
In strawberry growing we find that
those varieties which show a tendency
toward propagation by means of nodes
do not grow large fruits, while those
varieties which send out few runners
either produce large fruit or numerous
Our method of culture requires
that each mother plant Is to furnish
on an average of six young plants
only. After these are secured all
further growth . of runners Is re
stricted. The growing of this number of
plants does not draw upon the vitality
of the plants concerned materially
bo that practically the entire energy
of the plants Is directed Into the
channel of fruit production.
The less growth these runners are
allowed to make the more nearly per
fect will be the conservation of the
In this principle of conserving plant
energy we have one of tho essential
factors of great crops of fine fruit.
If, In strawberry culture, this prln- j
ciple la carefully followed out and '
accompanied by scientific rowing and
intensive! cultivation In the presence
of a highly fertilized soil, the huild-1
lug tip of Immense fruiting crowns
must surely result.
The object at this issue is to ra
dtice the flocks to a ptofluble bads,
