FOR
FARMERS.
A Lesson In Intensive Farming by
R. H. Forbes, Director and
Chemist of Agricultural
Experiment Station.
University of Arizona,
January 15, 1007.
Just west of Yuma, Arizona, In the alluvial
flood-plain of the Colorado, lies a little farm
of 7.2 acres whiuh on May 1, 1905, was virgin
bottomland, covered with sultwecd, arrow-1
brush and creosote bushes. The original
purpose of the tract was for planting selected
varieties of date palms'linportcd by the U. S.
department or Agriculture from the O d
World. The Experiment station, May '2, be
gan preparing tne grouim, ana oivftiuy 20 the
work or levelling, bordering and irrigating
the tract and the planting of 15'2 palms, was
completed.
THE 1'tiAN OF WORK.
Recognizing, however, that a farmer with
his living to make meantime, cannot afford
to wait for an orchard T.o come Into bearin
it was planned to plant crops for quick re
turns between the tree-rows, thus putting the
work on a feasible basis from the small farm
er's point of view- Jn order to economize
ground the Irrigating borders were so placed
as to coincide with tlie rows of palms, thus
utilizing space otherwise usually wasted.
The tract was divided by the borders into
lands, for the most part one-half an acre in
size. Irrigating water from the Colorado
Valley P. & J. Canal was obtained in the cus
tomary maimer, and E. L. Crane, himself a
Yuma Valley farmer, undertook the care of
what was nicknamed our play farm."
In size, as well as in Hie intensive character
or the work planned, tnis rarm" is the op
posite of the average holdings of this localitj'.
The prevailing crops or the region are alfalfa.
corn, barley, and forages in general, compara
tively little attention being given to vege
tables and fruits. Withal, the cost.of levelling
land in this region is liigh, rarely falling be
low twenty dollars an acre at current prices
for labor and teams. Moreover, the cost, ex
clusive of maintenance, of the Government
irrigating system now under construction
will be about $3.50 an acre annually for ten
years, to meet these and other heavy Items
of expense in connection with the establish
ment of a farm in lias region. Intensive crops
of a more remunerative, character thnii those
now in vogue, are essential. It was partly,
Iherefore, as an objectvlesson bearing upon
these financial aspects, of the general situa
tion, that this cultural work was planned.
ItECI.A3IATION OF THE G HOUND.
The soil of our tract, a warm, sandy loam
well adapted to gardening operations, was
levelled, ditched tnd boidered at a contract
price ol sl7.2() an acre, considerably less than
the aerage for the locality, reckoning the
labor of men aird teams at current rates. Jn
addition, barbed wire and posts for fencing
costSOO lO; lumber for headgates cost ?s:j.57;
a dnvc'wea point ana pipe, a pitcher-spout
pump and a barrel, ffi.i.lo: a small lumber
two-room house. Including live and one-half
days carpenterlilrc, Slo2.75: and a brush-roof
shelter for horses; about S5.00. Only skilled-
labor employed In leyelling, bordering and
ditching the ground, ind for part construc
tion of the house, is included in the above
estimates, as the common labor required or
dinarily would be, andjin this case was, fur
nished by the fanner himself-
To bring this ground under cultivation and
make it habitable for a small farmer and his
family, as stated above, therefore required a
cash outlay of about JMOO-00. In addition, in
tne average instance musi De inciuaea a
team, wagon, plow, harrow, haying equip
ment, shovels hoes and other small tools.

weie Early Kose potatoes. White .Bermuda
onions. Iiockyford cantaloupes, Dwarf -Champion
and Burpee's (lujrtcr Century tomatoes,
and alfalfa, besides afew-hiHs of watermelons
and sundry vegetable.
1 he produce was marketed in Yuma with
the exception of tomatoes, which, for the
largest part, were expressed to Tucson and
liisbee. The following statements for the
various crops are on the basis of net cash re-1
turns to the small farmer, who with an aver
age family of live and a team of horses is as-1
sumed to do the work required, as explained
below. Items necessitating cash outlay, as 1
seed, irrigating water, and crates aicdeducted
from gross returns. Water costs an average
of o0 cents for irrigation per acre for the crops
grown, 'a he yields in certain instances are
low, due to the unimproved condition of the
soil, which, like desert soils in genial, was
low in nitrogen and organic matter. Some
small salty areas also affected yields locally.

The labor on this crop was light, but in this
case time consuming, becanseof Inconvenient
arrangements for marketing. Thero werecm
ployed on the crop 31 days men's time; 8 davs
women and boys; and 2 days team, not other
wise included.
The crop was fertilized with barnyard man
ure in about three-fourths of the hills, and, as
stated above, t hestand wns poor. The results
of this acre are therefore conservative.

Alfalfa; 1.70 acres: This was sown May 18,
1905, yielding three cuttings of about five tons
of clean hay the first season. During the sec
ond season, covered by this Timely Hint,
there were seven cuttings with a total of
about 20 tons of hay. The only cash outlay
was 822.41 for irrigating water. The labor re
quired was, man's time, 14 days and team
nine days, which is rather high labor require
ment for this alfalfa on account of the small
size of the field under consideration, and lim
ited use of machinery. This crop at So 00 to
810.00 a ton, loose, which has been the price
this season, represents a cash return of not
less than 8120.00 for the crop; but this hay was
used to feed the team employed on the place,
provlnjj to be more than sufficient for that,
purpose, since a stack of about three tons re
mains at the end of the season. The manure
from this source, being Tree from Bermuda
grass seed, was especia.ly valuable for fertil
izing a part of the crops grown.
His Dear Old Mother.
"My dear old mother, who is now 83
years old. thrives on Electric Bitters,"
writes W. H. Brunson of Dublin, Ga.
"She has taken them for about two
years and enjoys an excellent appetite,
feels strong and sleeps well." That's
the way Electric Bitters affect the aged
and the same happy results follow in
all cases of female weakness and ren
eral debility. Weak, puny children
too, are greatly strengthened by them

The amount of labor-expended upon this
crop was large for the area, especially at the
transplanting time, une day's team work in
preparing the land and about 32 days, men's
time, were required -to bring it through, al
though the work was not heavy and could
have been largely performed by boys. The
lcld was low owing to the desert and unfer
tilized character of the soil, onions reouiring
large amounts of organic matter in the soil to

His Idea of a Good Time.
The retired contractor sighed
as he got into his dress suit and
thought of the eleborate dinner
and the opera that were to come,
"Some day,'' he said, 'Til get
real desp'rit, an' then do you
know what I'll do?"
"oomeLinng terrible, no
doubt," replied his ambitious
jvife.
"I s'pose it wouldn't look well
in print." he admitted, "but I
can't help that. What I'll do will
be to throw away these high
priced cigars, put on some old
rclothes, go out and come in by
the back way, an' smoke a quarter-pound
of cut-up chewin' to

The amount of labor required for the crop
self was about 15 working days, with team
Vi davs. The sesbania used as green manur-
ngon the west half of the potato ground was
iven 17 irrisallons. Jsermuda grass, more
over, nourished beneath the sesbania to such
an extent as subsequently to require 23 days
labor for cleaning up the .'15 acres so fertilized.
Although the larger part of the crop came
from the sesbania fertilized portion of the po
tatoes, this method of enriching the soil
i proved very costly, 27 days mans time and 3
J days team-work being required to put the ses
bania under ana aitcrwaras get ml or tne
Bermuda grass. Nevertheless, the labor eng
tailed could easily have been managed by a
careful farmer, a the Bermuda digging was
done in January when other work was not
urgent.

A Certain Cure for Croup Used Ten
Years Without a Failure.
Mr. W. C. Bott, a Star City, Tnd.,
hardware merchant, is enthusiastic in
his praise of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. His children have all been
subject to croup and he has used this
remedy for the past ten years, and al
though they much feared the croup,
his wife and he always felt safe upon
retiring when a bottle of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy was in the house.
His oldest child was subject to severe
attacks of croup, but this remedy never
failed to effect a speedy cure. He has
recommended it to friends and neigh
bors and all who have used it say that
it is unequalled for croup and whoop
ing cough. For sale at the Ketcher-
