MEi3 r PARMliRo"
By f, E. WAMawam, af the t H C lereice lareaa
ITMt oleal has beta saM la a joo
lar way akeal Mie rasar-kack hog and
bis Ka-sc-llttlBf unities, bat it Is a
very MeounflBf fact that he Is rap
telly becemlag extinct. Ills happy
haatlaff (round consist bow of only
a ssaall part of tha total hof produe
Inff area. lie has bees succeeded by
ths mors domesticated and more
highly dsvelop9 type of hog-, which
someeM has properly dubbed "the
xaertf are raiser." Many farmers can
easily attribute the possession of
homes, wealth and all that goes there
wltli.lothedomeirtlcatedhofj. Ills place
In the scheme of Industrial progress
has been won not by any unusual trait,
but Is largely dus to the fact that his
proflUbloneas Is a result of Instinctive
economical habits. By nature he
seems to fit Into the whole schemo of
farming as a utilizer, to the best pos
sible advantage, of many of the farm
product that would otherwise be t
total loss.
We can draw a ry valuable lesson
from this all but artistic animal,
whose only language Is his squeal of
disapproval and his sturdy grunt of
satisfaction. Ha saves where others
waste, and makes his living by rooting
around sometimes In places whero
wanted, sometimes not If there Is
anything within reach that he likes
he usually Onds It and proceeds to
make good use of the opportunity
without any manifest concern or ex
citement. He seems to iniko It his
business to look after small things,
even the holes In the fence If tho out
side looks more Inviting.
Profitable farming Is becoming more
ami more a business proposition In
which It Is necessary to look after
the small things ami to use to the best
advantage etery opportunity lo pro
duce more economically. The Iwst
and most profitable farmer liavo
adopted systems of farm accounting.
or, In other words, they hate become
bookkeepers, have kept such com
plete records as to enable them to de
termine which fields were profitable
and which were not. To begin with,
it Is not absolutely necessary to follow
up all little details, but It is a good
plan to do so as completely as possible.
If we were to go Into a manufactur
ing plant, one of the first things to
Impress us would be the system of
doing things and the strict principles
of economy that are followed. All
products that can be used for other
purposes arc saved, properly stored.
and used when the time comes. At
the end of each month, and possibly
each day, the manager knows the
exact status of affairs the amount of
stock on hand, and the quantity of
finished product ready for the market.
Every part of a grat machine Is
numbered and each must be accounted
If the same unsystematic methods
were practiced In factories as are used
on some farms, they would soon lose
their identity with the world's pro
gress, and become nothing but Idle
monuments to some man's failure.
On careful consideration It Is plain to
see that with farming it Is as import
ant, If not more so, to keep definite
and strict records of all expenditures
of time, money and labor.
The space alloted to this article
will not permit a detailed explanation
of all the possibilities of an account
ing system on the farm and what It
will accomplish, but carefully kept
records will be an Index finger to point
the farmer to loop holes through which
the profits are bow slipping. He
would know which ar the profitable
fields; which are the most profit
producing crops; which cows were
boarders, that he might at the end of
the season sell such animals to pay
their board bills; he would know
whether he was utilizing his rinr
power to the best possible advantage.
In this connection It might be said
that one of our foremost universities
has Just found tha,t,'on a 160-acre farm,
equipped with six splendid head of
work stock, the average dally labor
per horse was only a little over three
hours for the entire year a very
small average labor record, indicating
a lack of efficiency.
Well kept accounts would enable ns
to determine the most satisfactory
way of utilizing ourdalry products.
Experiment Stations have found that
the cream separator reduces the loss
of butter fat per cow to one-eighth
that of the deep setting; one-twenty-first
of the shallow pan, and one-thirty-third
of the water dilution
methods of cream separation. This
shows that with the ordinary farmer
who ia milking tea average cows,
figuring butter at the market price,
will save mora than the price of a
separator In a single season. It not
only is economical from the stand
point of obtaining more of the butter
fat from the milk and other methods
of cream separation, but makes it
possible to utilize the milk before it
has undergone the action of detri
mental bacteria, to which it is very
susceptible. Every farmer knows
that milk as it comes fresh from the
separator is In the most wholesome
condition for feeding young pigs and
young calves.
We hear a great deal said nowadays
about maintaining the fertility of the
soil. We all know that if grain is
sold direct on the market that we
deplete the fertility of the land very
rapidly. The nTt best system of
farming is stock raising for meat pro
duction, and the best of all systems
for maintaining the productivity of
the land, and at the same time reap
profit therefrom, ia dairying not
selling the whole milk but selling
butter only.
Only by following some system at
farm accounting can we know these
things asd be able to weigh in tha
balance the returns from each field
from each kind of stock and Xros

"I find tint my potatoes arr badly
Infested with what seems to me to
answer the description of potatoscab."
In treating potatoes for scab it Is
best to use one pound of formalin to
thirty gallons of water. This treat
ment should bo given the seed before
the potatoes are cut, and after treat
ing they shmild tie scattered out and
allowed todry unless jou are ready to
plantthem Immediately. Aitor using
tho solution for two or three hours It
should bo replenished, tecause when
left open It loses Its strength very
We can sec no reason why tho kero
sene barrels would in any way hinder
this treatment. Welclleo It will be
all right to use them in treating your
potatoes. As far as disinfecting the
planter Isconcerned, wetlo not believe
th will bo necessary If )ou treat tlis
seed properly.
The fungus disease called scab has
been known to Ihe for at least six
years In the soil, even though no
potatoes were- grown In that Held,
llccause of this, It is a good plan to
rotate jour crops and to plant your
treated seed In Ileitis where potatoes
hae not lcen grown for at least four
or 11 vo j carp.
The soli that contains an acid Is
Injurious to the growth of potato
scab, hence the application of sul
phate of ammonia, sulphatcof potash,
kanlt, or acid phosphate will tend to
free the soil of the scab fungus. On
tho other hand, the presence of lime,
wood ashe.s, or large quantities of
stable manure, will aid or encourage
the growth of potato scab.

no cne unless accustomed to seeing

Bostwlck, Parshall, Colorado: "Will
you be kind enough to furnish me
with what information jou have avail

for this location; be it methods of seed

In the vicinity of Parshall, Colorado
the best grass for haying purposes is
timothy. A much better combination
Is made by using timothy and alslke.
About 16 pounds of timothy and S or a

locality. Upon the farm of Louis FIck
situated within a short distance o
your farm, brome grass has been doing
wonderfully well. Meadow Fescue
will do well also In your locality.
From our experience with the grasses
and from an observance of the native
vegetation, we would say that the
timothy and brome grass are the two
best momlttrs of the grass family fot
your locality. The brome grass will
thrive with timothy and alslke undei
good conditions of irrigation which
usually prevail on thedeuloped farmi
of tlrat community.

used as any. Tho soil Miould be pre

about 20 pounds of brome grass should
be used per acre. If seeded with the
ether combination, the amount varies
with the proportion it is desired to
obtain. A very good combination Is
brome grass 15 pounds and alslke

is brome grass 12 pounds, timothy 10

Reply to W'.T. TlRHER, Cbilo, O.
We have j our letter of recent date in
which you ask for some information
en feeding calves, but you do nut state
how old j-ourcalvcs are. Young calves
should be fed on whole milk for some
time, and changes In their feed should
be made gradually. After a week or
ten days the whole milk feed maybe
changed to one of half skim and
half whole milk. Decrease the whole
milk until jou are feeding the call
entirely on skim milk. It is well to
have a quantity of grain convenient
ao that the calf will have an oppor
tunity to learn to eat as early as
possible. It probably will not learn to
eat grain for some little time. This
may be hastened, however, by mixing
a small amount of bran with the milk,
cr you may add a small quantity of
low-grade flour.
Skim milk contains some more
protein and carbohydrate than whole
milk, so for feeding it is best to pick
a grain that will not supply large
quantities of these materials. In some
instances calves may do very well on
highly-concentrated feed, but these
feeds are usually very expensive, and
ther are other substitutes that are
Just as good. Usually no betterresults
can be obtained from high-priced con
centrates than from feeding such grain
as corn, karrlr corn, sorghum, barley or
oats. The following mixtures have
been found to give very good satis
"Whole oats and bran.
Whole oats, corn, barley, and
A mixture of 15 pounds of whole
eats, 9 pounds of bran, 3 pounds of
corn meal, and 3 pound of linseed
meal is also a very good ieed for calves.
Together with these concentrates
the young and growing calf should
have plenty of fresh water, and be
allowed to play in the sun. It should
also have free access to good clover or
alfalfa hay. If these are not avail
able, timothy hay and corn fodder are
perhaps the next best. If you have a
silo, small quantities of ensilage will
keep the calf In good condition during
the winter months.
If the calf does not gain when taking
the whole milk, It shoujd be weaned.
Try half skim and half whole milk for
awhile. Sometimes the addition of a
spoonful of lime water to each feed
will correct the dlfllcultj-.
Calves may suffer from scours when
put on grass but usually there will bo
very little difficulty if they are allowed
to feed but a short time at first, then
gradually increasing the period eaoh
day until they become accustomed to
the change. Sudden changes of feed
are not good and should bo avoided.
