First publication Oct. 30th, 1907 I TIMELY HINTS FOR FARMERS. A Lesson in Intensive Fanning by R. H. Forbes, Director and Chemist of Agricultural Experiment Station. University of Arizona, January 15, 11)07. Just west of Yuma, Arizona, in the nllnvial flood-plain ofthe Colorado, lies a little mrm of 7 2 acres which on May I, 1905, was virgin bottomland, covered with saltweed, arrow brush and creosote bushes. Tnc original purpose of the tract was for planting selected yuiietb-s of date palms imported by the TJ. H. Department of Agriculture from the oirt World. The Experiment station, May 2, be gan preparing the ground, and on May 20 the work of levelling, bordering and irrigating the tract and the planting of iv'i palms, was completed. the I'liAX of wo UK- Recognizing, however, that a farmer with his living to make meantime, cannot airord to wait for an orchard to come into bearing, it was planned to plant crops lor quick re turns between the tree-rows, thus putting the work on a fensible basis rrom the small farm er's point or view. In order to economize ground the Irrigating borders were so placed as to coincide with the rows of palms, thus utilizing space otherwise usually wasted. The tract was divided by tho borders into lands, tor the most part one-half an aero in size. Irrigating water rrom the Colorado Valley P. & I. Canal was obtained in the cus tomary manner, and K. L. Crane, himself a Yuma Valley farmer, undertook the care or what was nicknamed our Play farm." In size, as well as in the Intensive character ofthe work planned, this farm" is the op posite orthe average holdings ortnl? locality. The prevailing crops of the region are alfalfa, corn, barley, and forages in general, compara tively utile attention being given to vege tables and fruits. Withal, the cost of levelling land in this region Is high, rarely falling be low twenty dollars an acre at current prices for labor and teams. Moreover, the cost, ex clusive or maintenance, or the Government irrigating system now under construction will be about S3.50 an acre annually mr ten 3'ears. To meet these and other hcayy Items or expense In connection with t he establish ment or a rarm in this region, Intensive crops or a more remunerative character than those now in vogue, are essential. It was partly, therefore, as an object lesson beTiring upon these financial aspects or the general situa tion, that this cultural work was planned. KF.CIA51ATION OF THE GROUND. Thc 'soll or our tract, a warm, sandy loam well adapted to gardening operations, was levelled, ditched nnd boidered at a contract price orS17.2ii an acre, considerably less than the acrnge for the locality, reckoning the labor or men and teams at current rates. In addition, barbed wire and posts for fencing cost S00-UI; lumber for headgates cost 19.57; a drive well point and pipe, a pitcher-spout pump and a barrel. tl-U-: u small lumber two-room house, including live and one-half days carpenter hire. SI52.75; and a brush-roof shelter for horses, about 5.00. Only skilled labor employed in levelling, bordering and ditching the ground, and for part construc tion of the house, is included In the above estimates, as the common labor required or dinarily would be, and In this case was, rur nished by the farmer himself. J o bring this ground under cultivation and make it habitable for a small farmer nnd his family, as stated nbove, therefore required a ca.sh outlay of about $400-00. In addition, in the average instance must be included a team, wagon, plow, harrow, haying equip ment, shovels hoL-s and other small tools. CKOrS AND MARKETS. The crops selected for the season of 1906 were Early Rose potatoes, While Bermuda onions, Rockyford cantaloupes, Dwarf Cham pion and mirpee'siOuartcr Century tomatoes. and alfaira, besides a few hills or watermelons and sundry vegetables. . 1 he produce was marketed In iuma with the exception jr tomatoes, which, for the largest part, were expressed to Tucson and Bisbee. The following statements for the various crops are on the basis of net cash ic turns to the small farmer, who with ar. aver age family of live and a team of horses Is as- umed to do the work required, as explained below. Items necessitating casli outlay, as seed, irrigating water, and crates are deducted from gross returns. ater costs an average oroO cents for irrigation per acre for the crops grown. The yields in certain instances arc low, due to the unimproved condition of the soil, which, like desert soils in general, was low in nitrogen and organic matter. Some small salty areas also allectcd yields locally. White Bermuda onions; '.17 acres; Seed planted Sept. 27-Oct. 3, 1905. Young onions transplanted, feb. 5-!), 1!K". Crop matured about June 1. Yield, 3910 pounds or dry on ions. Highest price received, 2c a pound; lowest price received, 1.8c a pound. Entire irop marketed in Yuma. Cash Cash outlay, returns.

One 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 yield was low owing to the' desert and unfer tilized character or the soil, onions requiring large amounts of organic matter In ,he soil to give good results. Early Rose potatoes; .81 acres: Seed pota toes planted Feb. 16-19, 1906. Beginning to bloom April 13. 'Crop all harvested June 13. Yield, '2615 pounds. Highest price. May 21, 3V$c Bulk of crop, 2Jic.

The sesb nla used as green manur ing on the west half of the potato ground was given 17 irrigations. Bermuda grass, more over, nourished beneath the seslmnia" to such an extent as subsequently to require 23 dayr labor for cleaning up the .15 acres so fertilized. Although tile larger part of the crop came from the scsbania fertilized portion ofthe po tatoes, tills method or enriching the soil proved very costly, 27 days mans time and 3 days team-work being required to putthces bania under and afterwards get rid of the Bermuda grass. Nevertheless, the labor 'en-, tailed could easily have been managed by "a carcrul farmer, as the Bermuda digging was. done in January when other work was not urgent. Tomatoes, Dwarf Champion and Burpee's- tiuarter Century; .o2, acres: beed planted in cold-frame, Feb. V. 1906. Transplanted to field, March 12-15.

Until the last, of June this crop required but little labor. During the shipping season, however, four persons were employed on about half time in picking, packing and shin ing the crop. The entire labor requirements for the crop were, men's time, 85 days; women and boys, 38 days; and team 10 days, the heaviest demand upon labor being during July. Dwarf Champion and Burpee's Quarter 1 Century yielded about equally well, both be ing of the dwarf bushy sorts best adapted to this climate. Barnyard manure was used un der the double rows, otherwise the ground was unfertilized save by the muddy irrigating water used. Rockyford cantaloupes; 1 acre: Seed planted March 7-9, 1906. Cold, backward Sanson re sulting in thin stand equal to about three fourths or an acre. Crop picked July 5 to Sept. 7. Yield 780 dozen, sold locally at rrom 35c to 15c a dozen.

Thore were em ployed on the crop Hi days men's time; 8 days women ami uoys; ana z anys team, not other wise included. The crop was fertilized with barnvard man ure in about three-fourths of the hills, and, as stated above, thestand was poor. The results of this acre are therefore conservative. Watermelons and sundry small sterns or proauce were sold locally to the amount oi gio.or .seed and irrigating water, about S 2.00 Lea ving a cash return or about.. 13.65 S15.65 $15.65 Alfalfa; 1.70 acres: This was sown May 18, 1905, yielding three cuttings or about five tons or clean hay the llrst season. During the sec ond season, covered by this Timely Hint. there were seven cuttings with a total or auout ai tons of nay. The only cash outlay was $22 41 for irrigating water. The labor re quired was. man's time. 14 davs and team nine days, which is rather high labor require ment ror this alfalfa on account of the small size ofthe field under consideration, and Mm itPd use or machinery. This crop at S5 00 to S10.00 a ton, loose, which has been tho price this season, represents a cash return or not less than 120.00 for the crop; but this hay was used to feed the team employed on the place. proving to be more than sufnclent for that. purpose, since a stack of about three tons re mains at the end of the season. The manure, from this source, being free from Bermuda grass seed, was especla.ly valuable for fertil Izlng a part of the crops grown.

Publisher Pas Much More For His Stock Than He Did Last Lear. Today there is general com plaint among publishers that print paper is constantly grow ing dearer. In the middle west many local papers are raising their subscription price 50 per cent in order to pay for the pa per. From the time when Gut enberg, first used movable type, made of wood, to the present day of metropolitan papers, some of which consume the product of acres of spruce in a singxe edi tion, printing has in a very large degree depended upon the forest. In the face of a threatened shortage of timber the amount of wood consumed each year for pulp has increased since 1899 from 2 million to 3 million cords. The year 1906 marked an increase of 93,000 cords in the imports of pulpwood, the highest average value per cord for all kinds, and a consumption greater by 469, 053 cords than that of any previ ous year. Spruce, the wood from which in 1899 three-fourths of the pulp was manufactured, is still the leading wood, but it now produ ces a little less than 70 per cent of the total. How well spruce is suited to the manufacture of pulp is shown by the fact that during a period in which the total quan tity of wood used has doubled and many 'lew woods have been introduced, the proportion of spruce pulpwood has remained nearly constant in spite of the drains upon the spruce forests for other purposes. During this time three different woods from widely separated regions have in curn held the rank of leader in the lumber supply. Since 1899 poplar, which for years was used in connection with spruce to the exclusion of all other paper woods, has increased in total quantity less than 100,- 000 cords, and is now outranked by hemlock. Pine, balsam and cottonwood are used in much smaller amounts. . New York alone consumes each year over a million and a quarter cords of wood in the manufacture of pulp, or more than twice as much as Maine, which ranks next. Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Michigan fol low in the order given. Sixty per cent of the wood used in New York was 'imported from elsewhere, and even so the sup ply appears to be waning, since the total consumption for the state shows a small decrease since 1905, whereas the other states named have all increased their consumption. Other states Most people know that if they have been sick they need Scoff's Emzifr ston to bring back health and strength. But the strongest point about Scott Emulsion is that you don't have to be sick to get results from it It keeps up the athlete's strength, puts fat oi) thin people, makes a fretful baby happy, brings color to a pale girl's cheeks, and pre vents coughs, colds and consumption. Food in concentrated form for sick and well, young and old, rich and poor. And it contains no drugs and no alcohcL ALL DHUGGiSTS; SOc. AND Sl.OO. important in the production of pulp are: Massachusetts, Minne sota, Ohio, Oregon, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia. The average cost of pulp de livered at the mill was $7.21. The total value of the wood con sumed in 1906 was $26,400,000. The chief item determining the price of paper is the cost of pulp. An example of the increased price of paper is found intlie case of the publisher of a daily tin the middle west, who recently paid $1200 for a carload of paper. The same quantity and grade of paper cost a year ago but $800. The chemical processes of pa per making, which better pre serve the wood fiber, are gaining over the mechanical process. In 1899 65 per cent of the wood was reduced by the mechanical pro cess; in 1906, less than 50 per cent. All importations of wood for pulp are from Canada, and com- . prised, m 1906, 739,000 cords, nearly all being -spruce. Four and a half million dollars' worth of pulp was imported in 1906, a slight falling off from 1905. x Circular 120 of the Forest Ser vice contains a discussion of the consumption of pulpwood in 1906, based on statistics gathered by the Bureau of the Cepsus and the Forest Service. The pamph let can be had upon application to the Forester, United States . Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C.
