COLORADO WILL BECOME GREAT POTATO STATE A study of the geographical distri bution of the production of potatoes in the United States shows that 59 per cent of the three hundred million bushles of potatoes are grown in nine of the northern tier of states. This can be accounted for, because these states have the cool climate that is necessary for success In potato growing. According to the statistics of the United States Department of Agricul ture, for December, 1907, the price of potatoes in three of the leading states of this northern tier (Michigan, Wis consin and Minnesota,) waß not above forty-five cents a bushel. At the same time the price of potatoes in Texas and Oklahoma was one dollar a bush el. Colorado though south of the center of the United States, has, because of her high altitude, conditions of tem perature similar to these northern states. At the same time the dry climate of Colorado prevents the development of that dreaded potato disease, of the East, known as the potato rot, or late blight. This saves the Colorado po tota grower one of the most expensive items of eastern potato culture, i. e., spraying to prevent 1068 from blight. Investigations conducted by the Ex periment station, at Ft. Collins, show that Colorado potato soils are so rich in the mineral fertilizers that no in crease in yield or quality results from the use of commercial fertilizers. This again saves th“ Colorado grower one of the heavy items of expense inci dent to the work of his eastern broth er. More than eighty per cent of the tissue of all plants is an element that comes directly from the air. The function of a plant in taking the car bon from the air is only exercised in the presence of light. This process goes on at Its best in strong sunlight During the growing season in Colo rado constant bright sunshine is the rule. Colorado, with all these advantages of soil, climate, geographical position with regard to high priced markets, and low cost of production, produces less than one-thirtieth of the potatoes of the United S’ates. Germany, which is only a little more than twice as large as Colorado, produces six times as many as the United States. A survey of the agricultural lands of Colorado shows area enough to pro duce more than one-fourth as many potatoes as the United States Is pro ducing at the present time. With all these advantages of perfect soils, moisture control, a climate adapted by,nature to the. growth of the potato, and comparative freedom from insects and fungous diseases, it is reasonable to predict that, in a few years Colo rado will be one of the leading, if not the leading, potato-producing state of America.

It can be started either from seed or from plants. If one wishes to raise plants to sell, it is bet ter, of course, to plant the seed, but if asparagus is wanted for home or market use, in the shortest time pos sible, it is better to set out yearling seedlings. It is important, in laying out the asparagus plantation to select a place where it can remain permanently for if taken proper care of, the plantation will last for twenty years. The'old idea was the asparagus “bed," the new is to plant in rows the same as corn, etc., so that for the market garden the cultivation can be done by horse. The land selected should be a deep, rich, fertile, moist and cool soil, having a warm exposure, a grad ual southern slope being, preferred. If the land is originally hard and course, it should be worked a year or two in advance by the raising of some thor oughly tilled crop, using as much manure as possible in the process. Late, deep fall plowing is preferable, turning under a thick covering of well rotted manure. In the spring when the frost is out of the ground, plow furrows from six. to ten inches deep and four feet apart. If the soil is not of the best quality, two or three inches of well rotted manure should be placed in the bottom of each trench and on this add a couple of inches of soil. Then, place the plants in the trench three feet apart. Cover with three inches of earth, it not being well to cover deeper, as it takes too long for the young shoots to push their way through. As the shoots grow the rest of the earth can be filled in around them by after cul tivation. When filled in the crowns of the plants should be about six inches below the surface of the ground, for if planted much less, the roots will push up to the surface and interfere with cultivation. If asparagus seed is to be planted, it should not be more than one year old. as the germinating per cent, of older seed is low. Soaking the seed several hours in warm water enables germination to take place sooner, as SOME THINGS WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MAD DOGS Rabies exists in Northern Colorado, and during the last year has caused considerable loss in hores, cattle, and hogs; besides several people have been bitten. Ribies. when affecting human being, is called hydrophobia. As this disease has caused a consid erable consternation in several sec tions of the state recently, a few com ments in this connection many not be j amiss. First, let us see about some of the superstitions associated with this dis ease. When a person has been bitten by mad dog. the killing of the dog does not prevent hydrophobia in the person bitten. This is a joke and strange as it may seem, has been taken seriously by may people who should know better. Better lock the dog up for a few days and see if the desc-ase developes. In case the disease does not develop the person bitten need have no further anxiety. If the diesease does develop in the dog. the person will then have plenty of time to go to a Pasteur institute fin Chi cago, or Austin, Texas', and take treatment, which will positively pre vent the disease from developing. Again, the common belief that a mad dog will run with his tail be tween his legs, and froth at the mouth is a mistake. The mad dog carries his tail in quite a natural position, and while the mouth may be open from paralysis of the lower jaw. yet he can not truly be said to froth at the mouth. Tlie “mad stone" is a fake, pure and simple. It is notheing but a piece of porous stone Nike soap [stone), which dried and then placed on a moist surface will absorb water, or blood, or anything of a fluid na ture. After a person is bitten by a mad dog the germs of the disease are very soon absorbed into the system, i The absurdity of going a week later to come remote part of the country and applying the mad stone with n view of Its absorbing the poison. Is too evident to be worthy of further comment. About twenty per cent, of persons bitten by dogs actually rabid will de velop the disease, of they have not received trenment. About eighty per cent, of the dogs bitten develop the disease If *he wounds are not cauterized. Ail warm blooded animals j have this dsease. or mav take It by j Inoculation. The bite of a rabid wolf or a coyote is said to be very danger- j ous. Without 'eci"g ’n*o s discussion of THE CANON CITY RECORD. THURSDAY, APRIL i. igog. ordinarially it takes about six weeks for the plants to come up. The seed is planted by the garden seed drill, in rows about eighteen inches apart. When the plants are up, thin out to about four inches in the row. It is well to sow radish seed with aspara gus. as the radish will come up much quicker than the asparagus and en able one to detect the rows for weed ing. The radishes can be pulled without interfering with the aspar agus, as they can be matured before the asparagus reaches any height. The seedlings are set out the next year. As the asparagus is a gross feeder, it is well to mulch in the fall with more or less rotted manure, al though straw and leaves will do. Be fore mulching, the old stalks should be cut and carried away. and. if, af fected with rust, should be burned. In early spring the straw and unde cayed leaves should be removed, and about the last of June, cover with a good coating of well rotted manure and cultivate in. Very little cutting should be done until two years after setting out, and then the cutting should not. be carried on later than July first, as the plants need to grow in order to store up a food suply for the next year’s growth. In cutting, the asparagus for use, a sharp, square pointed knife should be used, and a straight, downward cut made just un derneath the surface of the ground, care being taken not to injure the un seen shoots. ' Where plants are effected with rust, spray with soap Bordeaux mixture, j which is made up of four poun Is of frest stone lime to forty gallons of water, adding four pounds of dis solved laundry soap. As a preven tion. destroy all stray plants affected with rust in the vicinity.- Asnaragus can be forced in winter in cellars, or J hotbeds by using the roots of old plants: but these generally die after this kind of treatment. It is advis able to use only plants from .in old field which is to be plowed up. Some of the best varllles are: Early Argenteuil, Conover's Colos sal. Palmetto, and Columbian Mam moth White. R. S. HERRICK. I Colorado Agricultural College, Fcrt I Collins. the subject at this time here are a few things well worth remembering. Rabid dogs are not afraid of water (hydrophobia). Paralysis of the lower jaw and the hind legs gradually de velopes. Bewore of the dog that ap pears to have a bone in its throat —It velops. Beware of the dog that ap ease are very sensitive to light; hence the dog usually crawls in under the porch, or some other dark place. Skunks are subject to this disease, and when so affected do not hesitate ! to enter houses and bite individuals. If bitten by a suspicious acting do not kill the dog. If the dog de velopes rabies within five days, the dog. cauterize the wound at once, but person bitten should start at once for treatment. Don’t get nervous and go into hysterics, even though you are sure you have been bitten by a mad dog.

THE MAXIM OF THE SUCCESSFUL HUNTER In a statement in the current Col lier’s, ex-President Roosevelt sheds some interesting sidelights on his career as an" out-door American” — probably the phase of his life that has most Interested the public. He says: "Whatever success I have had in game hunting—and it has been by no means noteworthy—has been due, as well as J can make It out, to three causes: First, com mon sense and good Judgement; second, perseverance, which is the only way of allowing one to make good one's own blunders; third, the fact that I shot as well at game as at a target." Biographers of Roosevelt there have been in plenty, and not one of them has summed up the inan as well as he has done himself in the above simple statement. The three reasons for his success In hunting are the reasons for hls success In other fields as well. He has made a name for hlmeslf as a writer and as a statesman because of the exercise of common sense, per severance, and the knack of "shooting as well at game as at a target." There is many a man who Is a brilliant performer—in private. Ho says things that delight hls intimates, but when it comes to saying them in public, he becomes "rattled" and misses he target. He has not the per severance to overcome his ‘fault, and so he goes on through life, getting excited and nervous when the test comeg In the field. He Is beaten at every turn by men who are less gifted by nature, but whose qualities of judgement and cool-headedness make up for their lack of anything ap proaching genuls. "Shoot as well at game as at a tar get," should become a copy book maxim, for the encouagement of the average boy.—Denver Republican.

FRONTIER SKETCHES It was away back in the '7o’b that gold was first discovered in Deadwood and of course thither fllocked all kinds of adventurers from the honest gold miner and speculator to the gam bler, the desperado and the riff-raff of society, which is always among the first to arrive at such a place. Before the end of the first year there were people in plenty in the new camp and provisions had been freighted in, so that everyone’s wants were properly provided for, but the great need was ready money. Gold dust was used as currency which was neither economi cal nor satisfactory. An enterprising banker of Cheyenne named M. E. Post conceived the idea of establishing a bank at Deadwood. But how to get the money across the country to the camp was a question which bothered him not a llttje. Unfortunately someone had become acquainted with his plans and carried the news that a bank was to be es tablished in Deadwood. After that a person's life, to say nothing of his pocket book, was not safe on the stage coaches en route. Once, twice, three times a week the stage was held up by splendidly mounted highway men. who would easily escape to the mountain fastness and retain their liberty, until Judge Lynch might chance upon an occasional one of them. This august personage was a great deal more lenient with robbers and murderers than with a horse thief In the west in those days a man who would steal a horse was altogether too low to live, so they strung him up. On a bright March morning In ’77 the Deadwood stage, well loaded with passengers, stopped in front of the Cheyenne postofllce for Its last con tribution. the mail. Among the pass engers was a modest looking, little dark-eyed woman with a baby in her arms, going to join her husband, who was prospecting In Deadwood. She was acccompaniod by her brother John, who was to net as escort and protector during the weary six days’ trip. At the first stopping place out from Chepenne while passengers were walking around a little to limber themselves up. John came to his sis ter and said: "Hattie, here are some little bundles I wish you would carry in your hAnd-satchel among your baby's belongings. They contain the money for the new bank and nobody will suspect you." So the preious packages were deposited In the bot tom of the satchel among bottles of camphor, paregoric, etc. All went comparatively well for the first five days and the little band of travelers arrived at Custer City sta tion where they were to spend the night for they only traveled during the day. They were met by the un comfortable news that the stage go ing from Custer City into Deadwood the day before had been shot Into and the driver. Johnny Slaughter, killed and several of the passengers wound ed. This news did not tend to quiet the nervous excitement of the dark eyed woman with the baby and satch el. The sixth day broke dark and cloudy and the Journey had to be fin ished In the same coach that had the day before been riddled with buck shot by the road agents. The four lit tle cayuse ponies could not make very good time over the muddy roads and with a heavily loaded coach. • Along in the afternoon as they neared the spot where the tragedy occurred the day before, the passen gers noticed a dark figure crouching behind a horse which was sllhoutted Alcohol to Children Ask your doctor how often he prescribes an alcoholic stimulant for children.

SaM kr aMriy CO IMS against the horizon above them almost simultaneously the horse* were stopped by a tree, which had evi dently been felled for that purpose, across the road. Of course the men, about nine in number, sprang from the stage and by sheer physical force lifted the huge tree and threw It down the mountain side beneath them. That few momenta’ atop probably decided their fate. Was it a larger force of men than they had expected or waa it the sight of the helpless woman and the baby which Influenced the bandits concealed behind the rocks and trees near by. Perhaps It waa the latter for the westerner’s chivalry, be he bandit of gentleman, was a well-known fact. What ever Influence was at work, the stage was allowed to pass on unmo lested. The schedule time of arrival at Dead wood was 8:30 in the evening, but at that hour It was stuck In the mud eight miles from its destination and the woman was sitting on a log trying to protect her croupy baby from the night air. while the men were prying the coach out of the mud. They arrived safely, however, at S o’clock In the morning. When the hus band met his wife in the Dead wood hotel that night almoat her first words were: “Tom. take this money, quick. I never want to see a sign of It again.” Of course he was horrified at the sight of the money In her posses sion and said In a trembling voice: "Oh. Hattie, did you bring that In? It Is for that very money that poor John Slaughter lies dead In the room be low!” ENDS INDIGESTION IN FIVE MINUTES Every family here ought to keep some dlapepsln In the house, as any one of you may have an attack of In digestion. day or night.
