VERMONT WATCUMAN & STATE JOUKNAL: WEDNESDAY, MAY 27, 1896.
6 AGRICDLTURAL Trno as Gosjicl. Taking tliis text from a rccont lottor from tho De Laval Scparator Conipany, HoanVs Dairyman prcachos o dlecourBo cvcry farnior should hearund hecd: "Tho provolling uuprecedcutcdly and uuoxpcctcdly low buttor pricos will Bcrvo to tcach ono sound, wbolcsomo lceson in economlcal creumcry opora tion, evou If a sovoro and unwolconio ono. Almost any eort of mauagcmont and any soit of apparatus has euabled a crcatuory to oxist at past pricoa ovon though tho wasto was greatcr than tho proflt8, otc." Tho Do Laval Oompany aro talking about crcnniory tuanagemont and how tho very best ocononiy and niost skill ful mauagcmont aro rcquired to kcop from distrceslug loea. Apply tho doctrino to tho dairy farmor, whero it is twice aa truo as iu tho croamery. When buttor is worth twonty-flvo to thlrty conts, a poor cow rnay possibly bring hor ownor out ovon. Whero is 8ho and hor ownor to-day? With buttor al thlrty cente, a poor cow and a farmcr who doos not caro to bo rnado intolligcnt on tho rnany ini portant dairy questions niay possibly como out ovcu. But whoro will tho poor cow and the poor dairyman, with his contompt for botter knowlcdgo, ap ponr to-day? Every man ought to seo that thcso aro timcs when only good swimmers can kcop their heads abovo tho wator. Tho romedy is not to sneor nt tho good Bwimmor and his knowledgo of swimming, but try to learn how to Bwim. Now is a splendid timo for overy farmor who keops cows to stop and ask himseif a fcw questions. 1. Ara I studying this dairy business down to a flnc point, as I ought to. 2. Am I lmproving my mind, my judgment nnd all, as a man ought who must undorstand modorn dairying? 3. Am I lookiug into this cow ques tion? Do I know really very much about my cows? Havo I takou any real Bensiblo pains to mako a tost of them, bo I can get rid of tho poor, un profltablo oucs? 4. Butter is low; cloar down to what it costs u wolHnformed man to produco it. Can I afford to go along just bb I havo done, lol thcso niauy years, with out making auyspecial effortto become a woll-inforni d dairyman? 5. IlouriVs Dairyman has told me all this, timo and again. It has becn a truc, faithful fricnd. It never llattors me, but alwnys tries to iustruct me. Cau I afford to pay no alteution to its wamiugs? 0, I know, if I know nnything, that I must iose mouoy overy ufiy uuless I havo a hord of good cows and handle them as a wiso dairyman should. If I know this, should I not brace up and strive to put better thinking, moro tbought and study into tho busiuosB? Hard, blind labor wou't save me. I must manage this hord of cowb better. If every dairy farmcr in the United States would put theao questions fairly and honestly to himBclt for tho noxt thirty days, low prices would be worth millions to tho couutry. The difflculty can bo seon with half an oyo overywhero. Tho grcat mass of men who aro kecpiug cows aro putting but very little eound dairy knowledgo into tho business. If they woro well informed dalrymen, does any man sup pose they would keep Buch a lot of poor, unprofltablo cows? Of course not. A woll-iuformed man would got rid of the poor cowb at onco. Ho would use his knowledse to flnd out which of thoso cows was cheatlng him. Here is whore intelligcncc stepB in. These hard tiines are turninga white light on tho whole of us. Whether it is in printing ofllces or on dairy farmB, we must use sound knowledge and lots of it to tide ovcr. Tho more nowspa pers we issue below cost, and more cows we keop that aro constantly run ning us in debt, tho worso wo aro get ting every day. What is tho remedy? More and better knowledge of our busi uesB. There are lots of nowspaper men and dairy farmers who nover yet really set about to know what their business mcans, or what must bo dono to keep it up in times of ' hard sledding." Ono farmor tho other dav put tho qucstion in its riht light. Ho said that for years ho cconomized on knowlcdgo and wasted on cows until ho was near bank rupt. Sinco he had tried it the other way, he had beon twico as happy and pro8perous. Theso aro right profitable days forBtudy. Wo can't hope to make much money; but wo may be ablo, with a little better dairy senso, to save a lot of money. Bcnns as a Fleld Crop. W. W. Tracy of Michigan, an exten sivo groworof beans, sends the Country Gentleman tho following valuablo arti cle on tho valuc and cultivation of this crop: Although tho prico of beans is now verv low, I think that when planted on suitablc soil and judiciously cultivated they are still a comparativoly profltablo crop. The verv productivo plant is a vigor ous, healthy grower, and by its widoly extended rootsystem iB ablo to collect tho necessary food and moisture to do well on soils which aro too dry and loose for tho best dovelopmont of most Dlants. It is. nowovor, very suscep liblo to injury from ap ovorabundanco of water, and suffers more than most from anv breakiug or mutilation of tho root through crocking of the Boil or deep cultivation after tho plantB havo started; and wo neod not look for a full crop trom a cold, wot soil, or one that cracks badly during a droulh, nor can wo liopo for iroou roturns wnon tne plants havo been injurcd by deop cul- vation. On tho other hand, it is esscntial t( tho best dovelopmout of this crop that tho 11 old bo in tho best posslblo tiltli, and It will not do well it tho soil is al lowcd to becomn compact and hard Tho plant does not seem ablo to raak( crudo and frcsh manuros available, dc ing better in a soil mado rich by drcsE- tngs applleu uunng tnc prccemng rather than tlie current year. Uf tn tbree elomonts of plant food, nitrogen phosphoric acid and potash, it scems to supply itsolf most oaslly with tho flrst; so that woll-rotted stablo manuro or fortllizors rich in casilv solublo phos phoric acid and potash glvo tho best returns. Turning now from tho consldoratlon of tho naturo of tho plant. a knowlcdgo of which is always CBsontial to its most profltablo culturo. to tho practlcal lossons of oxpcrionce, wo flnd that ijcnns do best on a rich, wolwirainou soil coutaiuing enough clay or loam to hold tho plant food devoloped in it, and yct with suillciont sand or fino gravol to mako it lrlablo and loose. Boaus can bo raiscd, and somotimoB profltably, on almost any Boil, from a hcavy clay to a light sand, providod it bo rich, woll-dralued and can bo mado friablo by propcr haudling. As to conditlon, a hcavy sod is tho most dcsirablo. It iB doubtful if tho application of any fottilizor to a rich ueld lu good conditlon will so incrcaso tho yiolu of beans as to bo profltably used for this crop. But on a poorcr Boil, particularly if it bo in etubblo, a libcral droseing of well-rottod stablo manuro well workcd into tho surfacoin lato fall or carly spring is ofton tho so crot of a profltablo crop. If commer cial foitilizors aro to bo used, wood ashes, potash salls and flne ground bono aro the bost, and thoy should bo applied oarly in spring lu order to becomo available. Tho fleld of sod should bo plowod lato in tho fall, and carly in tho spring gono over with a disc or cutting har row, and this should bo repeatcd, each timo stirring tho soil to a greator dcptb, overy week or ten days till tho crop is planted. If fallplowingis impracticablo, turn tho sod ovor as earlyas possiblo in tho spring, roll it, and then uso tho cutting-harrow as beforo, taking caro not to cut into and turn up tho sod. Stubblo ground should be treated in thesame way, cxcept that it should bo gono ovor with a cultivator boforo tho flrst plowing, and a spring-tooth or other deep-working cultivator should be used. It may seem as though I wero calling for an unnecessary and useless prepara tion for the crop; but I havo been con vlnced by tho careful inspoction and study of from flvo to ton thousand acres of beans yearly that tho bean crop is a profltablo onc about in tho propor tion to which all necessary working of tho soil is dono boforo the sced is planted, when it cau bo done cheaply and without injury to tho roots of tho plants. In tho latitudo of Now York aud Michigan, the best timo to plant beans is cenorally from Mav 20 to Juno 20, though eomo of tho largest and best crops wo have over kuown havo como from plantings mado both earller and later. They may be planted in hills or drille, accordiug to tho taste and habits of tho farrocr, I prcfer to plant in drills about tweulyeiKht iuches apart and dropping two to (our seeds onco in sixteen inches. This can bo done very ickly and nicelv with common hand corn pliinters, or we may uso ono of tho horsc beon plantcrs, which mork out and plant two or tbree rows at onco, and do excellent work. We use from one-half to two-thirds of a bushel of soed to tho acre, according to the sizo of tho bean, and I am convmceu that a great many crops aro rcduced in quantity and Btill moro in quality by overaceding and conBequent crowding. As aoon as the beans are up bo uio rows mav be seen, go through with a cultivator, running it aa deep and as closo to the row as is practicable with out covering tho plants. This is tho last Btimng to any clepth tho soil snoum receive, and in tho case of many of tho best crops I have ever seen, it is the only work dono in tho fltld between planting aud harvesting. in most caBes, however, it will bo best to go through about a week later, thiB time with a horso noo set so as to uraw about an inch of soil from aa near tho row aa possible towards tho center, but care should be taken not to run too deep. In Bandy soil the roots will moet in twenty-oight-inch rows by tho timo tho plants havo mado tho flrst truo lcaves, aud every root cut is an injury to tnc piant. 1 navo icnown 01 a case whero the alteration for a half day of tho draft and set of a horeo hoe so that tho outsido teeth ran a little deeper close to the plaute, though it leit tne fleld lookiug better, resultcd iu tho lessening of tho yield of the part of the fleld so treated to a uegree wtucn was fouud by careful measurement to amount to over tbree bushels per acro. A few days lator go through amiin with tho hoe set to throw back this earth, and a little more, bo as to leavo ono to two iuches of lreBh earth about tho stems of the plants and smother any weeda which may have Btarted. If tho preparation before plantiug has been thorough and this work carefully dono, tho cron will need no tarther attention till harvest time, unless it bo going through with a hoo aud cutting out a fow weedB which may havo escaped tho early cultivation and horso hoe. lT MAY DO AS Mucu FOIt You.
