All lumber used is one inch excepting the 4 by 4 cross eilis, which FERTILE CONDITION OF SOIL Room for Good Deal of Difference of , Opinion Regarding Best Fertil izer for Vegetables. (By G. S. FRAPS. College Station. Texas.) For cabbage or cucumbers on a Bandy soil deficient in phosphate URO a mixture of 1,200 pounds cottonseed meal, 800 pounds acid phosphate and 75 pounds sulphate, four per cent, nitrogen, and two per cent, potash. Use from 400 to SOO pounds per acre? Well rotted manure ls also excellent for cucumbers. In order to maintain the fertile condition jf the Boil it will be necessary to adopt a rotation of crops in whicb you plant peas, beans or some si7' ilar crop, and either turn them under or graze them off. The land needs vegetable matter almost as badly as it does plant food. There is room for a good deal of difference of opinion in regard to the best fertilizer for vegetables. A mix ture of ten pounds cottonseed meal, five pounds acid phosphate, and one pound of kainit when found to give good results might be continued. It might be well to try a little more kainit on tomatoes and cucumbers, and usually larger applications than 400 pounds per acre, I do not think that cottonseed meal alone will give as good results as this mixture. The cottonseed meal might give better re sults some seasons but in the long run the mixture ought tn do better. For tomatoes it is possible to run the potash to as high as five pounds kainit, or if it is desired to use a more concentrated source oV potash, use one pound of muriate of potash, in place of four pounds of kainit. I do not consider that there is any dan ger of hurting la.id with the use of commercial fertilizers, provided the fertilizers are used in the proper way. In the first place, means should always be taken to maintain the con tent of the organic matter in the soil by the use of stable manure and by growing peas, beans, or similar crops and either turning them under or grazing them off. In other words, save and return to the soil as much an possible of the vegetable matter. TRACTION WHEEL IS IMPROVED Particularly Adapted for Use on Agri cultural Vehicles-Positively Grips Solid Earth. In describing a traction wheel, in vented by D. B. Husted, Mantua, O., the Scientific American says: This improvement refers to a trac tion wheel particularly adapted for use on agricultural vehicles, and an object is to provide a plane band traction Traction Wheel. wheel having a high degree of traction, which wheel may be readily converted into a rough shod traction wheel. The wheel positively grips the solid earth beneath the mud or slush when in the form of either a rough shod or a plane band wheel. Apricot Orchard. Apricots bloom early, and conse quently great care must be taken in selecting the location for an apricot orchard. This should be high, and near a large body of water, If possible. It ie absolutely useless to plant apricot trees on low ground. Young Hogs Healthy. Young hogs should not be given crowded quarters.

The upright slats are 1% or 2 Inches wide and rounded somewhat to prevent tearing of the wool. The rack ls 24 inches above floor of trough. The rack must be cleaned out before feeding grain. The rack may be made wider though it should be kept in mind that the sheep should be able to reach eas ily over the bottom of the trough to get the feed. COTTONSEED OF MUCH VALUE Millions of Dollars in Capital and Thousands of Persons Employed in Various Industries. Forty years ago cottonseed waa re garded as a nuisance. Southern leg islatures enacted laws prohiDitlng the dumping of lt into running streams. It was suffered to accumu late and rot until it could be used as a manure. Slowly lt was put to other uses. It was crushed and some use made of the oil but the product was gummy and therefore unavailable as a lubri cant. By 1880 the annual product was of the value of $7,000,000 but most of it still went to waste. Now the cottonseed is fulfilling the prediction of Edward Atkinson, who said, in 1885, that "the cottonseed, weighing twice as much as the fiber, would some day be worth quite as much." The Boston Monitor In an article on the wonders of cottonseed says: "People now eat and wear cottonseed products and do all manner of things with them. The lintels yields batting, wadding, stuffing for pads, cushions, comforts, horse collars and upholstery, mixing for shoddy, for wool in hat making and for lambs' wool in fleece lined underwear; also for felt and low grade yarns used in making lamp and candle wicks, twine, rope and car "pets, also cellulose used in making artificial silk and writing paper, and as a basis for explosives. "But this Is not all. The hulls are used in feed, fertilizer, paper stock and stuffing. The cake and meal are also used In fertilizers, In dye-stuffs, In feed for cattle, poultry, horses and swine, as well as in confectionery and flour. The oil enters Into the manu facture of lard compounds, white cot tolene, butter oil, cooking oil, salad oil, 'olive' oil and eleomargarines. It ls used in the packing of olives and sardines, In miners' oil, in lubricating oil, in paints, in mixing for putty and In automobile tires. It ls an ingredi ent of soap, washing powders, etc Altogether there are fifty-three prod utcs. Millions of capital and thou sands of persons are employed in the Industries growing out of the use of cottonseed." A gasoline engine on the average farm soon pays its way. A cow giving milk requires more wa ter than one which is not. It ie said that sheep will eat 480 different kinds of weeds. Straw may be poor feed, but it's worth money to the farmer. Early and thorough training makes gentle, safe and tractable horses. When not too expensive potatoes may be fed to cows in limited quanti ties. Rye makes a fair grade of silage when lt ls cut into one-quarter inch lengths'. The main factors in making good butter are clean cream and proper ripening. Don't forget to provide plenty of salt for the sheep. Also mix in some good worm powder. A dry time is not a good time to locate tile drains, but it is a good time to dig them. About 18 to 25 hay caps per acre are usually required, depending on yield and size of cocks. If the fetlocks are kept clipped and the horse's legs are kept clean scratches will never bother. One acre of well-grown corn put in a silo will provide more feed for the dairy cows than can be obtained by handling the soil in any other man ner. A profitable flow of milk once al lowed to go down by default cannot be regained until the cow again fresh ens. Many growers say that weeds are as valuable a fertilizer as clover and cow peas, if they are turned under every year.
