In using the peas for toil Im

as a catch crop after wheat, oata or
rye, Seeded at this late date, the
crop ' make considerable vine
growth which Is " valuable for for
age and fertility but which would
hardly be sufficient to mature seed.
. Op other farms, the peas are
seeded with success In the corn at
In either ' case, It is r the last cultivation, a bushel of

case.' Some farmera drill the peas
In' rows between the corn, this
method requiring less seed and
therefore being advisable when
seed prices are high. .

Hogs are non-sweating animals
and unless they are provided with
protection in the form of Bade or
.'water for wallowing , purposes, they
auffer' heavily from heat during the
"hot summer months, livestock men
say. Many farmers are using con

In keeping their animals cool while

.In order, to keep down the suffering
from heat most effectively..
If there are no trees in the pas
ture to provide shade, a good shel
ter from the sun may be construct-
"' ed ' by setting short posts in the
ground and building a roof of light
boards over these. The boards
should be nailed down to prevent
their being blown away by the
wind. If the owner wishes the
building for permanent ahade, raft
ers can be set up and the structure
made more complete.
A shed-root type of building 14
feet long and five and one-half feet
high Iri front sloping down to three
and one-half feet high In the rear
has given satisfactory results on
the Kentucky Agricultural Experi
ment Station farm, swine, special
ists of the station say. No sides
are put on the building as free
circulation of air Is desired. "
When concrete wallowing tanks
are used In keeping hogs cool,, a
small amount of oil should be plac
ed in the water to keep the animals
free from lice.- Care should be tak
en to see that wallows of all kinds
are kept clean.
,. Many Rented Farms Stress Need Of
.More than one-third of the farms
in Kentucky are-operated by ten
ants, according to the 1920 census.
Leasing contracts under which
'many of these farms are operated
point out the need in the State for
.more general use of contracts which
will keep the land up in productive
ness and at ' the same time enable
the tenant to make a fair profit
and tne landlord a lair raie 01 re

head of the farm economics de
partment of the College of Agricul
ture. "One type of successful leasing
contract is that which includes

basis ' of the commercial cost Of
nitrogen, the specialists point out.
Also the hay obtained 'from ' the
peas. Is satisfactory feed for all
classes ' of livestock. When . the

of the peas is returned to the soil.

In summer the. bedding for hogs
should be drenched thoroughly with
water and in extremely hot weath
er, from 500 to 800 pounds of let

the floor of the car or hung up in
sacks. It Is bent to give them dry
feed- before shipping Instead' of
filling them with water and swill

Drainage Of Farm Lamia Getting
, " ' Added Attention
With the decrease in the cost of
tile, Kentucky farmers this year
have shown more Interest in the
drainage of their fields than they
have in any one of the past three or
four years, . according to -Earl O.
Welch, farm engineering specialist
of the College of Agriculture. In
line with this marked interest
twelve demonstrations have been ar
ranged by the college extension divi
sion on as many farms in eight dif
ferent counties of the State to point
out the value of drainage to interest
ed persons, he said".
Warren Madison, Rockcastle and
Carroll counties each have two such
demonstrations while Muhlenberg,
Hart, Webster and Jefferson coun
ties each have one. Additional
demost rations probably will be ar
ranged In co-operation with farmers
in other counties in the near future.
i'lt Is impossible to bring soil up
to the highest state of fertility with
out good drainage," Mr. Welch
pointed out In speaking of the pro
jects. "When land is poorly drained
at all, every quality necessary for a
fertile soil is either wholly or
partially destroyed. Poor drainage
lowers the ' availability . of all the
plant food elements by preventing
