By a recent act of Congress which
will go into effect on July 1, 1913, a
etandard barrel of apples must be
twenty-six inches between the heads,
sixty-four inches in circumference, out
side measuremont round the middle,
and the heads must be seventeen and
one-eighth inches in diameter. In ac
cordance with this act, such a barrel, if
the apples contained theroin are hand
picked and free from blemishes, may be
labeled "Standard." This law was
passed at the urgent Bolicitation of
those who believe a purchaser has a
right to known what he is getting when
he buys a barrel of apples, says a
writer in the Youth's Companion. Any
violation of this law will be punishable
by a fine of one dollar for every barrel
that does not comply with these re
quirements. Just thirty years ago this fall Thomas
A. Edison opened the first electric light
station in New York- city. This initial
plant, which was the beginning of a
mighty industry, was located in an old
warehouse in New York city on Pearl
street. The single dynamo, now pre
served as a curio, was driven by a
steam engine and supplied current to
about four hundred lamps distributed
overa territory about a mile square.
The wires were all laid underground.
The newspapers were dubious about the
success of the new lamps, although
they admitted that they gave plenty of
light, but Edison himself, coatless and
collarless as he watched the machinery,
was thrilled with success. The growth
of electric lighting since that eventful
day, thirty years ago, has been truly
wonderful until now the very world is
illuminated nightly with millions of
electric lights. The first electric motor
wasconnected to the electric light wires
in 1884 and for six months, it is re
corded, this same motor lay around
collecting dust before the company
could find anyone willing to try the new
power producer. Today, in New York
city alone, nearly 350,000 horse power
is used in electric motors.
A Succeasful Farmer Who Has
In the current issue of Farm and
Fireside appears an interesting account
of Myron L. Briggs, who lost both legs
and still operates successfully a ninety
acre farm m southern Michigan. Mr.
Briggs bought his farm eight years ago
and has now paid for it At the time
he purchased his farm it was badly run
About eleven years ago, Mr. Briggs
lost both legs in a street car accident in
Grand Rapids. For fourteen months he
was in a hospital. Both legs wereampu
tated just below the hip joints. Follow
ing is an extract from the article:
"When he finally recovered, he had
enough to partly pay for his farm. He
and his wife are both scientific farmers
and great workers. They hire very lit
tle help. Mr. Briggs works all the time
and can do any and all kinds of farm
work, even to carrying out pails of swill
and feeding the pigs, shingling a high
barn roof, climbing the windmill tower
to oil the gearing, harnessing a three
horse team and httching up, etc. He is
the most practical and successf ul farmer
in the neighborhootl. After he cuts his
own wheat, he goes over to his neigh
bors with his binder, all alone, and cuts
from twenty to forty acres more. His
farm is worth twico what it was when
he bought it a number of years ago. He
recently finished a fine new house with
modern improvements. He hauled all
the lumber and other material from the
city five miles away, doing the loading
and unloading himself. He is a carpen
ter and machinist, naturally, though he
never worked in the shops. He is stout
as an ox and a wonder to everyone who
visits his farm. He has actually shamed
some other farmers who have long
jgrumbled because they could not make
"iarming pay. But he can. His cowB
are how producing more mllk than any
other herd of the same number in that
section, and Mr. Briggs takes care of
them all the time. He feeds them a
well-balanced ration with his own hands.
He climbs the hay-mow and silo-ladders
and throws down the hay and silage,
then carries it in and givcs each cow
her proper ration accordingtoher power
of assimilation and performance at the
pail. He milks his cows, cleans out the
Btuble and has more fun 'farming it'
than any man with two legs and feet.
He whistles and sings while at work
and is one of the most sensible, well-in-formed
and jolly of all the farmers I
Maklng Moncy Out of Turkeys.
The following account of a woman's
success in raising turkeys is taken from
the current issue of Farm and Fireside:
"For a number of years I have been
interested in raising turkeys. I began
operations on a small scale. Finding it
a very profitable experiment and a pleas
ant pastime, I have enlarged the num
ber of my breeding stock each year.
Now I get orders from almost every
State in the Union.
"I keep only the Bourbon Reds, and I
consider them far ahead of any other
kind. As to size, they run well up to
the Bronze. They are hardy and
healthy and are very gently and easy to
"Until the turkeys are about a month
or two weeks old, I yard the mother
with her poults. After that I let them
have the run of the pasture through the
day time, bringing them home each even
ing to roost. They soon become accus
tomed to coming home at evening, at
which time we give them a good feed
of small grain, such as wheat, Kafir
corn or millet, with all the clabber
cheese that I have to spare.
"My roosting-house opens to the
south with a wire front. I roost them
there until they are large enough to fly
upon a large outdoors frame. I like to
get them to Jroosting outdoors as early
as possible, for the outdoor life is the
natural life of the turkey. Plenty of
clear fresh water is necessary to the
turkey at all times. After the poults
have had their fill, the Burplus water is
emptied and the pans cleaned for the
."Since beginning to keep Bourbon
Reds, I have had noserious trouble with
disease. I know nothing of blackhead
from experience. The warding off of
disease is easier than the curing of it. I
do this by putting a little crude carbolic
acid in the drinking-water once a week.
A large percentage of turkeys that die
are from two to three weeks old. They
need, at that age, careful handling,
good nourishing food and exercise. As
soon as they seem strong enough, I
turn them out to rustle for themselves,
when they can get bugs and worms to

Prepared for the Vermont Commis
sion on the Conservation of Natural
Since animal life can be sustained
directly or indirectly only by food pro
duced from the soil, it is fortunate for
the welfare of the race that agriculture
difTers from the other so called extrac
tive industries in that by propermethods
of fertilization and rotation of crops
the fertility and, therefore, the crop
producing power of the soil may not
only be maintained but may be in
creased, whereas the mine can come to
but one ultimate end, namely, exhaus
tion. As evidence of this permanency
of the soil we may instancethe example
of China and Japan which are today
producing large crops on land that has
been cultivated for more than three
thousand years. We may say, thep,
that trom the slandpoint of the general
welfare any system of farming which
does not at least maintain the food
producing power of the soil is short
It is no exaggeration to say that the
greater part of the farming in this
country has been shortsighted farming.
The natural fertility of our soil, the
immense acreage of which we were
possessed, and the policy of the Federal
Government of parceling out the public
domain to settlers who would live upon
it have tended to make us careless of
soil fertility. It mattered little to the
farmer that he exhausted his soil, if his
son could go West and get free of
charge 1C0 acres of virgin soil; and it
mattered little to the town that the Boil
of its countryside declined, so long as
its food could be transported from a
distance cheaper than it could be
produced at home. The result of this
policy has been that our people have
lived lavishly upon the bounty of a new
land, taking no thought of the morrow
until now the priceof food has increased
to such an extentjthat the high Amer
ican standard of living is threatened
and far-seeing public mcn point out the
danger of a food shortage if our popu
lation keeps increasing at the present
The question now is, what are we
going to do about it? The nnswer
usually given is, , "mnre education for
the farmer," which is good so far as it
goes. Good farming practice is based
upon certain laws of nature, with which
man must cooperate, since he cannot
change them. Jugglery brings no re
ward in dealing with Dame Nature.
As Prof. Carver aptly expresses it,
"Neither impudence, nor a smooth
tongue, noradistinguished manner, nor
lurid rhetoric ever yet made an acre of
land yield alarger crop of grain; but
they have frequently made an oflice, a
sanctum, a platform, and even a pulpit
yield a larger crop of dollars." Since
success in farming depends upon an
understanding of these laws, it is good
policy for the State to make it easy for
those who so desire to gain access to
this knowledge. The causes of soil
exhaustion, the elements of plant food
which are likely to become deficient in
the soil, the means of maintaining a
proper physical condition of the soil so
that its texture and its water holding
capacity may be preserved, should not
only be taughtin ourschools, but should
be made accessible to those too old to
go to school by means of college exten
sion courses. With better education we
might reasonably expect to see better
organization of thebusiness of farming,
more careful saving of all manurial
wastes of the farm, more intelligent
purchase of fertilizing materials, and a
counting in the cost of production the
cost of putting back in the soil the
amount of fertility removed by the
crop, without which we cannot hope to
keep up the producing power of the
But the problem of short-sighted
farming cannot be solved by farmers
alone. There are certain phases of
this question which should be considered
by all thoughtful people. Conservation
simply means saving, the dcnial of
some of the wants of today that the
needs of the future may be supplied.
During the last third of the past
century, farm products often sold for
barely enough to pay for the labor of
producing them. In that time of great
plenty a system of distributing farm
products was built up which has no
where been equalled for expensiveness.
It is estimated that the farmer re
ceives only about one-third of the money
paid by the consumer for his product.
Now that land is becoming more scarce
and more capital must be used in the
business of farming, if the costof keep
ing good the fertility of the soil is added
to the cost of production, and if the
farmer receives the profit to which he
is entitled, we cannot expect to retain
our present expensive method of get
ting farm products from producer to
consumer without having the cost of
living burdensome to the people.
European countries have found relief in
parcelspost and in cooperative societies
and among buyers. Why not we?
Our aim should be neither high prices
nor low prices regardless of future con
sequences, but rather to secure an
abundance and permanent supply of
food for the people at a fair price to
them and at the same time at a fair
price to the producers, for in this way
alone can the men be kept on the land
who will do away with the short-sighted
