WASTE OF THE FARMER.
Agricultural Reform tho Most Urgent
of Modern Problems.
George T. Powell recently wrote a
letter on "The Farmer's Wastefulness"
which was printed In one of the secu
lar dailies. He declares that "the most
urgent problem before onr nation to
day is not the tu r I IT, but the preven
tion of the great wastefulness In ami
cultural methods thai occurs every

Responsible authorities have estimat

American people at a little more titan
$I2>U00.U00,000 a year. Tint both the
first cost and the rot'ill price of most
of the articles on the list could be and
should be materially reduced lit ire can
be no question.
As Mr. Powell declares, very few of
our farmers have even a vague not I ui
of the cost of I he products. The milk
ers of farm Implements, of clot hing
hais. sloes, furniture and other nrtl
pies bought by farmers, know t > (ho
fraction of ??.nl the cost of iho mer
pbandise. There are und I here can be

manufacturing or In commercial busi

Elm Has a Cancer.
The famous iter Ira in elta In Salem,
Mass., has ii .-aiic.-r. It was noticed
for some lime that lio cavities sh >\vod
on the elm. This was proof to the ex
perienced eye that (here vv.is decay In
side the i lee.
An Investigation showed thai the elm
had a en lifer on I he inside, which, if
allowed t" grow, would kill the tree
in a few years. Incisions were made
and portions of the inside were found
to be putik. Tiny roots had begun
spreading inside this growth. Efforts
are now being made to remove the can
This elm is famed for its size and
beauty. The trunk measures twenty
seven feet In circumference, and its
age has been reckoned as bill years

Captain John Bertram, one of Salem's
famous merchants of olden days,
Late Irish potatoes can be planted
In July. No potato crop yields more
bountifully than the late Irish potato
crop when the months of August and
September have a good rainfnII. In
fact, one good soaking rain the first
part of September will insure a good
crop of potatoes. The full grown po
tatoes nie much more prolific, and
freer from a Strong and oftentimes
acrid laste than those grown in the
spring. A frequent practice among
potato growers and a very Injurious
one to potatoes is to put strong, fresh
i stable manure in i he furrow when the
potatoes are dropped before covering
them with plow. Such an application
' not only produces scab on the potn
I toes, inn often makes them waxy, Im
pairing their flavor and reducing their
quality for lhe marke) und for home
consumption as well.
Take Care of the Dog.
