(JlombiaSjunjjleS Mrs. frank anderson of New York, who has followed her explorer husband into the densest of jungles, has re cently returned from a most toilsome trip into the interior of Colombia. Mr. Anderson is geologist for the Standard Oil company, and took four young as sistants with him, besides his wife. “I was the first white woman to pen etrate that part of the jungle," says Mrs. Anderson. "As our little steam er went up the Sinu the children ran •out from the mud and bamboo houses calling, ’Mira! Mira! Americana!’ 1 used to feel that I was on exhibition ali the time, and it was very hard to dress the part, for my clothes wilted and the very hairpins rusted in my hair It was so hot and damp that wp had to take oT all the buttons and metal buckles for fear of rust spots, and our shoes fairly mildewed on our feet. • Rut by far the most interesting part of the trip was the voyage up the Sinu cn the little 75-foot steamer. There was only one camorote or state room and only fifty feet of deck space for the sixty passengers to swing their hammocks. The captain gave me his stateroom, since 1 was the only wom an on heard; but with the ethers it was first come, first served. The ham mocks were swung one above the eth er like hunks. Some of the men slept on deck and some on the table where we ate! We had our own bedding, of course, and I got through the 110 miles in comparative comfort. “We found a beautiful house wait ing for us in I.orica. built in the old Spanish mission style round a wonder ful patio. Unlike most of the houses. It was two stories high. It belonged to the principal family of the province, who owned the electric light, butter an i ice plants. Life in Lorica. "From my windows I could see the women washing in the river, carrying their bundles of clothes down to a con \ I \ r k f | r- x venient stone aud paddling them with boards, then spreading them on bushes to dry. Everything we needed in the household was brought to the door by natives. Live chickens and tur keys. yuccas, mangoes, the yellow fruit that tastes rather like a sweet plum, cocoanuts and ilucas are all poled down the river in canoes Then there is coccanut flour bread rolled out into thin sheets like Jewish mat/.os. i liked to go down to the wharf on market days, though the native ladies m vor do. Ever the cloth lor their dresses is brought to the house in bolts by the servants. "Asa matter of fact, they wear only a jacket and skirt, it is so very hot. less than nine degrees from the equa tor. Children, even of the better class, go entirely without clothing up to five and six. And there are so many of them! Fifteen is not a particularly largo family, and 1 met one charming woman who had twenty-two. Grand parents. father and mother, the mar ried sons and daughters and ali the children live together in the same fam ilies with all their children in absolute harmony. They keep a great many servants, of course, for wages are very low. and treat them almost like mem bers of the family. "The lower classes are a mixture of Indian, Chinese and negro, but the aristocrats are almost pure Spanish. They are charmingly friendly—much more so than the Mexican women — and I became very fond of some of them. They never could understand \v hv I wanted to go out into the jun gle, but they were too polite to say so! They were very pretty in their white jackets that looked almost like our middies and the dainty little shoes, of which they are so proud.

Giants or pigmies, virtually all liv ing beings have some enemy against whom they are continually fighting. Tiny insects are preyed upon by in sects still tinier. One wasplike insect, for. example, is the sworn enemy of the caterpilicr. Another member of the wasp family does mankind a serv ice by making life miserable for the cabbage worm. The family name is microgaster. which literally means "small stomach.” In spite of hla small stomach, the Philadelphia North American says, he has a big appetite, for proof of which ask the caterpillar. In the grub stage they swarm over the caterpillar like bees on a honeycomb. The grubs are so tiny that as many as 1,000 have been found on a single caterpillar. Burrowing down in the caterpillar’s wool, they get their food from the fluids circulating through the worm’s system. Rather than hunt for food tiful long hair. It is almost always prettily dressed in spite of the fact that they carry everything on their heads. I have seen a woman with two five-gallon oil tins filled with wa ter on her head, but she only walked a little straighter than usual. Going Into the Jungle. "I never shall forget the start on my own first trip into the jungle. 1 wore a divided skirt, in which the na tives were much interested. They were more dressed than usual them selves, and all the Indians we met re tired as soon as they saw me. and came back with skirts of bark and leaves "We had the usual hammocks, bags of food, water barrels, mosquito nets and cook tent loaded on the burros, and had taken along a special ca/np tent for me in case we didn't find ’he usual empty house. "The first night we camped ir. a little open space, and the cook soon hail a fire going, with bacon J;nd yair.as toasting over it Every bit of drinking water has to be brought from a safe place and then boi ed. But we didn’t have to live on beans and bacon. Even the woods Indi ms raise fowls and crttle. There is no' wild game. You have to learn to eat fresh-killed meat; but you have to do that anywhere in that country. It is too hot to keep anything even over night. My khaki suit was soon streaked with dtfst and the heat from ihe horses, but as there was no one to see it I did not mind. "Wo did have sonic shooting, for the second day out a fifteen-foot boa <on strictor crossed our path. One of the men shot it at once and the natives skinned it. The colors in its skin were wonderful. "They were nothing, however, to the colors of the Rowers. The tail grass and the trees made it too dark in most places even to take pictures, but whenever there was a rift of sunlight the flowers burst forth. There were the wonderful pink accasia bushes and a sort of bird of paradise flower with one blue petal—the other yellow and red. The royal poinsetta grew tall as a maple with its perfect blooms and long pods—and there were beauti'ul scarlet and yellow orchids. We found some very rare specimens. While tin? men were looking for oil I looked for orchids. Sometimes 1 would have to 1)0 contented with an armful of scarlet hybiscus, but usually I found what I was looking for. Up the Rio de Oro. "Later we went up the Rio de Oro in the launch as far as the country of the savages oast of Bogota. They have never been disturbed since the Spaniards drove them into their moun tain fastnesses and they shoot at in truders on sight with poisoned arrows. We saw some of them like dark pieces of bronze among the trees, but did not go too near. “The savages may have been afraid of the puffing of the launch, for they did not trouble us. "The woods Indians greeted us with the greatest interest, however. As soon as we made our camp they would manage something in the way of clothes and then appear with fruit and fowls to sell. They were wonder fully skillful and in a few hours they had cut down and made a tree trunk canoe when we came out on the banks of Rio Sardlnata. It was hollow'ed out, chipped off and a canvas shelter arranged for me almost before we had finished our arrangements to send back our horses. The Indians with their long poles took us down not only the Rio Sardinata but the San Miguel. On the Rio Buzio. a tributary of the (o'atumbo. we saw natives killing alligators along the banks. There is n i swimming in these streams, for they are full of alligators and sharks." themselves and digest it for them selves they let the caterpillar find it, eat it and digest it, and then the microgaster grubs steal it. But the caterpillar's wrongs are avenged by another insect, called the chrysalis stinger. When the microgas ter curls up In its chrysalis for its win ter sleep the stinger attacks the chrysalis and lays its own eggs, de pending upon the chrysalis to keep them alive until they are hatched. Forests Left In America. Before the coming of the white man the forests of the United States cov ered an area of 800,000,000 acres, and contained about 5,200,000,000,000 board feet of lumber, according to Leonard Lundgren, writing in the Engineering Magazine. The forests today cover 550,000,000,000 acres and contain about 2,900,000,000,000 board feet of lumber. The annual cut is about 43,- 000,000,000,000 board feet. Seventy-six per cent of the forest land is privately owned. 21 per cent is held by the United States in the national forests and 3 per cent la on other publlt land, , .-■■■■ ii [ USE OF TRAP NEST IS QUITE ESSENTIAL /'/1 //■* if £' i e A r m,. ,. /'/ J \ ,♦ \ J vi#_l —4#' mi T t “ A?; - -• -^i 1 — A Working Plan tor Building a Trap Nest. A trap nest is a laying nest so ar ranged that after a hen enters it she is confined until released by the at tendant. The trap nest shown in the accompanying illustration is used with good results on the government poul try farm and is quite similar to the nett used at the Connecticut state ex periment station, it is very simple in construction and may bo built at a small cost. The use of trap nests is essential in breeding poultry for both egg produc tion and exhibition, where pedigree records are used in selecting either the males or females, and has a place in mass selection for increasing the i egg production. Trap nests are of • value in weeding out poor layers and increasing the average egg yield of a flock by selecting the breeding, but are not extensively used cix account of the largo amount of labor required to operate them. Some poultry breeders trap-nest their pullets during their first six months of laying and use this as a basis in selecting their breeders 1 xor egg production. | One trap nest should be provided tor four to five hens kept in flocks of 50 or more, while more nap nests per hen are necessary in smaller flocks. The hens are banded with numbered bands, and a record is kept of their egg pro duction. The nests should be visited at least three times daily, and prefer ably four or five times, frequent trips being especially necessary when the hens are laying freely and during hot weather. 1 his trap nest may be attached to the underside of the dropping board, with the front facing the pen and ar ranged so that it can be easily re moved. or it may be placed on the | wails of the pen. If the nest is placed | under the dropping board, the latter will serve as a top for the nest, and | tire rear of the nest may be of wire ; to allow good ventilation in warm weather. If the nest is placed on the i wall, slats or wire should be inserted | from the frorjt of the nest to the wall at a sharp angle to prevent the hens j from roosting on the nest. The illustration above shows the construction and working of a trap nest. When the hen enters this nest j her back raises the door (c), which re -1 leases the catch or trigger (a) and al HINGED HARROW WORKS EASY Implement Is Not Hard to Handle, Does Splendid Execution and Occupies but Little Room.

FARMERS BEAR THE BURDENS IV.cst Every Other Class Have Organi zations and Are in Position to Demand Recognition. The time has come for people who live in rural districts to take more interest in state and national affairs. Most every other class has an organi zation and is in a position to de mand recognition, but farmers are called upon to bear the burdens of taxation without recognition in pub lic enterprises and state government. No one is more to blame for this than farmers. When we take an active in terest in public enterprises and vote for men instead of politicians we will have greater influence in state gov ernment. —Florida Fruit Grower. Food Supply the Same.

If the nests are to be placed directly below the droppings' board, a wire top should be used on the nest, except for a five inch strip of wood on the front edge of the top to stiffen the nest. COST OF FARM IMPLEMENTS Machines Make Money When in Use and Are Expensive When Idle— Other Striking Facts. Many facts which will be interest ing to farmers were determined by the federal department of agriculture in a recent study of farm machinery costs. Among the more striking facts are the following: “Machines make money for you when they are in use; they cost you money when they stand idle. “A machine makes the greatest possible profit for its owner when it is used continuously in profitable work til! it is worn out. Then it is really worn out —it does not-rot or rust out. “The average farm implement is only about half worn out by use alone. The rest of the wear is due to rust and decay. “Acres count in the life of a machine —not years.” It was found that the cost per acre covered is the real measure of the value of the service given by an im plement and that, on the average, the more acres covered per year, the more profit to the owner. CRUELTY TO HORSE OR MULE Cause of Sore Shoulders is Badly Made, Cheap Collars or Collars That Do Not Fit. No greater cruelty can be inflicted on a horse or mule than to work him with a sore shoulder. The cause of sore shoulder is badly made, cheap collars or collars that do not fit. If a mule's efficiency is lowered even 10 per cent for a month.-because of a sore shoulder, that alone will pay the difference between a poor and a good collar, to say nothing about the better feeling it will give any humane man to see his mule's shoulders in good condition. Sweat pads are only useful to patch up a bad collar. They may make a -poor collar better, but they certainly do not help a good collar. ; A broad, smooth, hard, clean collar well fitted is the best can be dona. ■ : Life of Corn Binder, It is estimated that the average corn binder is In use -not more than four days of each year, fasts about eleven years, and costs its owner 5 84 cents for every acre it covers.

Country Citizen Has Advantages Over His City Relative When it Comes to the Real Opportunities. (By G. H. ALFORD. Extension Division Maryland Agricultural College.) WE think we are facing a new condition of affairs in the drift of the young peo ple from the country to the cities, in the steady rise in the cost at living, and in the decline of our food exports. It is true, for us, this is anew situation, but for the world it is as old as civilization. Plutarch thundered against the de population of the rural districts. Jus tinian, the great lawmaker, was in favor of legislation designed to keep people on the farm. The great Ro man emperor, Augustus, before the Christian era, saw that h>s empire was being undermined and called to him the poets of the nation and com manded them’ to sing of the beauties and profits of country life. The young people of this country have been taught in their homes, in the schools, and through the literature placed in their hands, largely to over estimate the advantages of city life and they have not been taught correctly to Comprehend its disadvan tages. Likewise, the people of both city and country exaggerate the diffi culties and drudgery of country life and fail to appreciate fully its great and peculiar advantages. Low City Wages. One middle-aged man in New York city, in answering the question, why young men leave the farm, says: “I wish to say that 1 speak from expe rience, for I am one of the army of deserters, and like thousands of oth ers, am now too poor financially to go back to the farm, and too proud to go back broke. I know a great number here in New York city who are in the same position as I am. While I know many country boys. I know but very few who do not wish they had stayed on the old farm, and everyone tries to make his friends up the state think ho is happy and very prosperous on a salary of twenty-five dollars per week, when, at the same time, he is trying to make both ends meet and still live respectably.” Probably the best way to convince boys that it is best to remain on the farm is by such methods of farming as will yield the necessary profits to provide the necessities, comforts, and some of the luxuries of life. There are thousands of small farmers culti vating farms with labor-saving tools and keeping plenty of good live stock, who are making the work of their own hands bring them in more lhan fifteen hundred dollars annually. Com paratively few men in towns and cities get as large a salary. The farm er grows his living on his farm and pays no house rent. The larger part of his fifteen hundred dollars is net profit. The fifteen hundred dollar town man can hardly make both ends meet. Demonstrations, lectures, bulletins, books and contact with men trained and paid to advise and help him aro now his privileges. Ho has a chance with tremendous odds in his favor to be a man —and a successful farmer. Permanent Prosperity Sure. It is unquestioned that we are now entering a permanent era of high priced farm products and high priced land. This being true, it is advisable for farmers’ boys to buy land and grow high priced foodstuffs. The country schools and cnurches are rapidly being consolidated, and made the equal of the best in the towns. Our industrial and commer cial affairs will soon be adjusted so that farmers will receive their full share of what the consumer pays. Farmers will soon have an equal chance with other men in securing capital to supply their farms and homes with labor-saving and wealth producing equipment. The business world expects food of the right kind, and at prices commensurate with pro gressive living and is joining the farmers in advocating the establish ment of financial institutions that will afford capital to meet the legiti mate needs of farmers. The farmer and his family many now have all city conveniences. Wa ter, electric lights, telephone, tireless cookers, gasoline engines, automo biles, and so on, can be obtained for a comparatively small outlay of money. The time has come when county agents, agricultural specialists, prin cipals of agricultural high schools, and, in fact, agriculturists for all kinds of agricultural work will be selected from among the successful farmers and dragged from the farm. More farmers will be elected govern ors and sent to congress. There is a bright future for the educated, suc cessful farmer. GETTING THE SELLING HABIT Farming is a business as well as a science. The business of the farmer is to produce things and sell them for profit. This is also the business of all toe mam 'actarlng plants throughout the world. A farmer is not only a business man, but also a manufactur er, and might be considered a mer chant. since his income is dependent On the products that he sells for profit. To Save Umbrellas.

GOOD FINANCIAL PROSPECT Wisconsin Official Shows Why Young Men and Women Should Stay In Country and Help Make the Nation’s Real Wealth. (By MATTHEW S. DUDGEON of Wis consin Free Library Commission.) TEN years ago—twenty years ago—all tho alert, energetic farm boys were leaving the farm for the city. They did this because they wanted to make money, because they wanted to see life. If they stayed on the farm, they were not only sure to be lonely and to be in unattractive surroundings, but they were sure to be poor. But times have changed. Today, if you go through a fairly prosperous farming community, you will find the telephone in nearly every farmhouse and a daily delivery of mail bringing the daily newspapers to every door. You will find many farm houses better fitted up with con veniences and comforts than are the homes of the average city laborer. Because there are better roads and better horses and better buggies and more automobiles, you will find that the farmer and his family are no long er imprisoned in the farmhouse, but move about and have as much social life and as great an opportunity to meet each other as do the city man and his family. Many a farm boy who is ten miles in the country, with his automobile, can and frequently does, reach town in less time than it takes the average man in the big city to reach his business from his city or suburban home. The boy who stays on the farm need no longer look ahead to a lonesome, cheerless existence. Prices Going Higher. Never before has the American farm boy had so promising a financial pros pect as he has at the present time. Profits are surer than they ever were and they hid fair to increase. Prices are high and they are going higher. I American consumers are demanding j more and better farm products and stand ready to pay better prices. They | are going more directly to the farm | for what they want and the farmer is ; getting a bigger share of what they | pay. The war and the disturbances that have grown of it have inter rupted, if they have not permanently cut off, the channels of trade for for eign farm products, so that the Amer ican farmer is likely in the future to have open to him the markets of the world as they never before have been. Skill and experience in handling soils, in rotating crops, in selecting seeds, and in planting and tending, is rendering a total failure of any crop unusual and unlikely. But as up-to-date farming is now carried on, the failure of a single crop is no long er the disaster which t formerly was. No one is now a one-crop farmer. To day’s successful farmer has not only a variety of crops which constitutes reserve resources when the yield or the price of a single crop fails him. but he now gets revenues from a score of sources, from his corn and oats and wheat and potatoes as of old, hut also from his truck garden, from his orchard and small fruit, from his fat hogs and cattle, from his purebred stock animals sold at fancy prices, from his dairy products, and even from his poultry. Big Financial Returns, In fact, the farmer who formerly was considered a plodder working at one thing, with one idea and one re source. is now getting to be a re sourceful business man, an adminis trator, an alert student of the mar ket and finance, a well-read profession al man who understands the science of his profession. The boy who stays on the farm to become a successful farmer is enter- . ing into an occupation where brains, intelligence and study, energy and alertness are getting as large finan cial returns as they are in any hu man activity. Moroover, he is enter ing into an occupation where work ing and living conditions are more universally attractive and healthful than arc the surroundings of any group of workers in the world. What more can he hope for if he goes to the city ? ‘ • MADE FORTUNE ON PEANUTS A week or two ago a man died in j Virginia who was called the “Peanut I King.” He had made a pretty good j sized fortune buying the peanut crop in his vicinity, storing it until the market was favorable and then sell- | ing it. Not only had he made n for tune himself, but the farmers of that vicinity had always been provided with a market at fair prices and the dealers had always known where to go to purchase peanuts. In other words, he had earned his money, not because ho was a producer, but be cause he had the ability to bring the producer and the consumer together. Kind of Children to Watch, A contributor in the Indianapolis News says it is not the girl who does tomboy “stunts” whom you want to w’atch. “Good little Jane, who blushes if you look at her, is much more like ly to do something wrong.’’ And, ver ily. the contributor thus reveals his understanding of human nature—girl nature, as well as boy nature. Little Johnny of the sad eyes and angelic disposition is much more likely to rob a bank 20 years hence than is Bill of the freckles, who sees the humor of putting a bent pin under the Sunday school teacher, just as is demure Jane more likely to bring sorrow to the home than is reckless Kate, who learns early in life to take care of her self physically, mentally and morally. —Columbia (0.)
