Farm Lands Increase in Value.
The value of farm lands of the Unit
ad States is estimated at $45.55 per
acre, as compnared with $40.85 a year
igo. $40.31 two years ago, $38.10 three
years ago and $36.23 four years .ago.
J'he census reported the value of
larm lands in 1910 as $32.40, and in
1900 as $15.57 per acre.
In recent years the value of farm
lands has been increasing at the rate
of about 5 per cent a year, or approxi
mately $2 per acre per year. The ex
ceptional ingrease of the past year
may be explained partly by the reac

TOMATOES FOR NORTH
Florida and Texas Lead In Pro
duction of Crop.
Convenience, Care and Judgmen
Should Enter -Into Preparation of
Product for Market-Exclude
All Leaky FruIt.
(By L. C. CORBE~TT.)
Commercial tomato growing in th
southern states is almost exclusivel
confined to tile prodIuctionl of tomatoe
at a season when they cannot b
grown in the North except inl greez
hlouses. On tis account the comumel
cial production of thlis crop is restric
ed to areas wvhere there is very littli
if any, freezing during the wint(
monthls. Flria anld Texas lead I
the production of this crop.
Where tomatoes are extensivel
grown for shipment to tile North, col
venience, care and judgment shioul
enter into the preparationl of the pro
uct for the marke't. It is always a
visable andl usually njecessairy to asso
and grade thle fruits as they cont
from tile field before pllacin~g themni
the shipping boxes. If this work -ci
be done in a shed located on tihe ra
way over whlich the( fruits tire to 1
transported, so) muchi the better, b
if it is necessary to haul the tomalito
some1 distance for shi pment thlen Il
packing shed should be located alt tl
m~ost convenlient and( accessible pol
for both harvestin~g and( shiipping. T
58ame( precaultionls In hlandiling
fruits sh~ould be observed inl tile Sou
as in tihe North.
The fruits ats thley comel from I
vines should pass5 the scrutliny of
perlenlced sort ers and1( grad~ers so 111
tomlatoes of a certain size and de'gr
of ripeness8 will reach tile same11 sh
ping case. All leaky fruIts should
excluded, and( tile stemIIs, if aniy I
found attachetd to tile fruits, shot
be removed. Experience has silo
thlat fruits arc less likely to be brok
and leaky upon01 arrival at their d
tination if all stems are removed tl1
wihen tits feature int negected.
The individulal fruits are wrapj
in a soft browna or white tea paj
atnd paceid in toay~nae boxes or
glum and Holland all thrown In.
Scope of Work.
These figures give some faint idea
of the scope of the work of the depart
ment of agriculture in its campaign
against this scourge of the live stock
industry in the South. To get a full
realization of the magnitude of this
work, however, one must know how dif
ficult it has been to push the fight in
the face of popular opposition based
on a widespread belief that the ar
selical bath was poisonous to cattle
and caused milk cows to go dry-must
know that it usually takes two or
three years of preliminary demonstra
tion work to persuade a county to
vote for tick eradication, and that oc
casionailly dipping vats are blown up
'with dynamite by overenthusiastic op
ponents of such new-fangled contrap
Now, however, the department seems
to have the campaign well in hand,
and the work of clearing territory is
going forward smoothly. Over a third
of the territory originally quarantined
has already been released and popular
sentiment is trending strongly in favor
of pushing the fight.
The department will demonstrate
the use of the dipping vat anywhere,
if there seems to be sufficient local in
terest to encourage the experiment,
but it will not begin systematic work
at eradication in a quarantined area
until the County has, by a special ref
erendum election, voted in favor of
such a campaign.
The dipping demonstrations ofter
partake of the nature of a barbecue o
picnic. Everybody goes, the skeptica
as wf!l as the hopeful, and the ad
dresses of the demonstrators are usual
- ly delivered before large audiences.
After the dipping, the steers an
cows that have been through the at
senical ordeal are put on public ex
I hibitlon for several days, in order tha

animals suffer no harm from the bath

For the long shipmtents which ar
necessary in order to place the Florid

markets, the fruits are picked as soo

andi show the slightest change in colo>
The stage of ripeness at which fruit
should be picked andl shipped shoul
be regulated by the season as wvell n1
by the demands of the market fc
