SCHOOL GARDENS IN TEXAS.
Agricultural Branch of the Training of San Antonio Children. The school garden system of San Antonio, Tex., Is on an established practical basis, city has mere gardens attached to ita schools than any place of its sizfe in th? world. There are 949 of these cultivated plots attached to the twen ty-nine public schools. The gardens ere in charge of school superinten dents, but the work of planting, cul tivating and harvesting the products of each is carried on by the pupils cf the school to which the garden ■belongs. The gradens vary from one tenth to one-quarter of an acre. It is estimated that the total acreage Is more than 109, or equal to that of a good sized farm. The boys of the schools take a great pride In their gardens, teachers d:Clare that since the gar dens were established the boys are much more industrious in their stud ies, that they learn more readily and that they all show evidence of mate rial improvements In their health and physical condition. The climate cf San Antonio is pe culiarly adapted to the operation of the school garden system. The work can be carried cn during practically the whole school term. Certain veg etables can be grown successfully during the fall and winter. The spring gardens are planted early in February and the products are ma tured and harvested by the time the school term ends in June. An enor mous quantity of vegetables is grown. The boys take such a keen Interest in the work that they give little time to playing the games that usually con sume a good part of the time of young students. There Is muci rivalry among the different schools over the gardens. Text books on agriculture now are used in the public schools of San An tonio. The youths are given a basic training in farming and gardening and are enabled to put their knowl edge to practical use In the gardens that are provided for them. Ener getic boys, who become interested in the work do not coniine their labors to the school garden but many of them have converted unsightly back yards and vacant lots at their homes Into cultivated plots.

How Locus ts are a table luxury in Pal The Jews In Arabia estine and other places, fry them in sesame oil. Petrea locusts are dried in the sun and ground into a kind of flour for baking. In Central Africa certain tribes make them into think brown soup. In Madagascar they are ibaked in huge jars, then fried in grease and mixed with rice. In Algeria they simply are boiled In water and salted to taste. The Arabs grind and bake them as cakes, roast them in butter or crush them with camel's cheese and dates. But they only resort to this fare in times of famine. In southern Russia, where locusts still are extensively eaten by the serfs, the insects usually are smoked In the first Instance like fish. When required for consumption the legs and wings are broken off and the bodies are boiled, roasted, stewed, fried or broiled. The flavor of lo custs, while strong and disagreeable, becomes mild and readily disguised when cooked. Some looust soups scarcely are to be distinguished from beef broth. Fried in their own oil and slightly salted they acquire a pleasant nutty flavor. Locust eating tribes Invariably grow fat when the food is plentiful. Grubs and caterplllers are eaten with avidity by Parisians, and butterflies are eaten by the natives of Australia, silkworms in China and harvest flies by some Africans—Chicago Tribune. so DR. TALKS OF FOOD Pres, of Board of Health. "What shall I eat?" is the daily in quiry the physician is met with. I do not hesitate to say that in my Judgment a large percentage of dis ease is caused by poorly selected and improperly prepared food. My per sonal experience with the fully-cooked food, known as Grape-Nuts, enables me to speak freely of its merits. ''From overwork I suffered several years with malnutrition, palpitation of the heart and loss of sleep. Last summer I was led to experiment per sonally with the new food, which I used in conjunction with good rich cow's milk. In a short time after I commenced its use the disagreeable symptoms disappeared, my heart's ac tion became steady and normal, the functions of the stomach were prop erly carried out, and I again slept as soundly and as well as in my youth. "I look upon Grape-Nuts as a per fect food, and no one can gainsay but that it has a most prominent place in a rational, scientific system of feed ing. Any one who uses this food will soon be convinced of the soundness of the principle upon which it is man ufactured and may thereby know the facts as to its trne worth.

Something of the importance of live stock and especially dairying on the farm is seen in the fact that only 10 cents of fertility leaves the farm in BOO pounds of butter sold, but $18 of fertiiity goes from the farm for every 100 bushels of corn sold from it. This is the difference to the farm in grain farming, when considered as a final analysis. And herein are the reasons why dairy farming enriches the farm, as it does, while grain farming impov erishes it, without live stock to return fertility.—Indiana Farmer. The Squab Raising. The most successful squab raisers ure those who have begun in a very email way, and Increased their stock and equipment as the business grew. The work is not particularly exacting nor arduous, and an extensive plant is unnecessary. Common pigeons should not be considered. Homers or homer crosses probably are the best for the amateur. Pigeons always go in pairs, and if there is one extra male in the pen, he will constantly cause trouble by disturbing the mated pairs.—Sub urban Life. Spreading Manure. When manure is not decomposed in the heap it must be decomposed in the soil before the plants can utilize it as a food and the sooner the man ure is spread the better it will be for the crop. As it is difficult to spread manure on plowed ground, owing to the labor of hauling over the rough, soft ground, the method practiced by those who plow' twice is to spread the manure on the unplowed ground in the trough 'not harrowing) and when the land is cross-plowed later on the manure Is more intimately mixed with the soil. -Epitomist. Good Cultural Methods. All general staple crops such as cotton, corn, wheat, etc., can be large ly protected from serious insect dam age by what is known as cultural methods. do This means a good, deep, thorough preparation of the land,— the use of good seed,—planting at the most favorable time, fertilizing prop to erly with barnyard manure or com mercial fertilizers, and rotating your crops so that one crop does not inher it the insect enemies of the preceding crop. These methods all tend to make a strong, vigorous, quick-grow ing plant which will quickly recover from slight attacks of the insects; whereas, if the crop is In poorly pre pared and poorly fertilized soil, it will be sickly and weak and will succumb readily to the attacks of insects.— Progressive Farmer. it. Living from an Acre. The wonderful possibilities of rich •oil combined with irrigation are well set forth in an article in the Century Magazine, in an account of a one-acre ranch at Clarkston, Wash., by Mr. Wm. H. Kirkbride. The little farm is owned by a retired railroad engineer, who could find nothing more congen ial than farming, in this small way. He finds also that, by means of abun dant water applied at the right time, he is able to support his little family and lay up some money each year. He does all the cultivation by a hand wheel plow. Among his crops are peaches, pulms, apricots, cherries, English walnuts, chestnuts, small fruits and all kinds of vegetables; be sides these products he keeps quite a chicken ranch, which yields him $200 to $300. He is well content with the farming, and says of himself and his business; "I am my own horse and plow and farm band, and even my own rain maker. With irrigation and carelul supervision, there is nothing in the way of profitable producer that can beat the small farm." So much in favor of irrigation; without it the rich soil and careful til lage would help but little. Feeding Tobacco to Sheep. The first suggestion after tobacco feeding is, that in a day or two there would be a job of pulling wool. But Dr. J. M. Miller—a doctor, remember —says that feeding sheep tobacco will kill all parasites, inside and out, ticks and all, and that it is bis own experi ence for a year. Commenting on this claim of the doctor, Wallace's Farmer says it will not be necessary to feed the sheep fine cut, or expensive tobac co, but simply stems from the cigar makers cut up fine and mixed in their feed in order to get them to eat it, as like most other animals, except men. sheep are "agin" tobacco as a regular diet, and must be coaxed with such mixing. The Farmer, in its comment finally says: "While we have no experience in this, we think it is entirely probable that if tobacco is fed liberally to sheep through the winter and in the early part of the summer, they will be comparatively free from parasites. Many farmers feed their horses to bacco to get rid of intestinal worms. We once owned a colt which became so fond of it that it would hunt the tenant's pockets to get a nip a^ his fine-cut. There are worse uses of to bacco than feeding it to sheep." Green Cut Bone. I am a reader of the Farmer and much interested in the poultry depart ment. I read the article of J. G., at Ohio Institute on "Feeding for Egg3" in number of Feb. 15, page 12, and would like to ask J. G. where he gets the green cut bone, that he talks about, He says at one cent a pound it is cheaper than grain. There is nothing of that kind on the market here a Mentone, which is my trading point. If I could get it I would give it a trial or de any of our readers know of it?— W- XL D. L f 10 in of There is no doubt but that gree» cut bone does make hens lay. The testimony to this fact comes from all sides; there is no disputing it. But the bones must be bought fresh from the butcher, and ground at home. If ground in a wholesale way it would not keep, and would injure the fowls if fed to them. But here comes the trouble—what bone cutter to buy. We cannot tell you. All the cutters we know anything about are either too expensive, or are too difficult to work. 'They are generally very hard to man age, requiring two persons, and the one who turns the crank must be a stout one. It is hard work. A good, strong, easily worked bone cutter at à reasonable price, is a much needed machine, on every farm where eggs are grown for the market. Who will invent one?—Indiana Farmer. is Horses and Alfalfa Hay. It takes a good while to break away from other methods and prejudices. Occasionally it is stated that it will not do to feed alfalfa hay to horses. The Utah experiment station has test ed comparative horse feeding on tim othy and alfalfa hay. One horse in each of two teams of draft horses was fed timothy hay and the other horse in each team was fed alfalfa, for three months from January to April. The grain ration was bran and shorts. The horses weighed about 1400 pounds each. During this period one horse on timothy lost 47 pounds and the other 77 pounds. One horse on alfalfa gained 4 pounds and the other lost 8 pounds. From April to Janu ary the two that had been fed on al falfa were put into timothy, the other two thaï had been fed on timothy were given alfalfa, curing this peri od one horse on timothy gained B pounds and the other lost 65 pounds. One of the horses on alfalfa gained 50 pounds and the other gained 25 pounds. Again for two periods, the feeds were reversed during each period with results favoring alfalfa. The horses were moderately worked dur ing the entire experiments. This experiment tends to disprove the theory that alfalfa cannot be fed to working horses successfully. Hors es fed on it performed the same work on the same grain ration as horses fed on timothy hay, and showed gains in weight during the test while the timothy-fed animal in all but one case shows a decrease. In feeding it, care should be taken to guard against over feeding. It is much relished by horses and for that reason it is mora necessary to be fed carefully. Notes for the Farm. A pound of poultry ca nbe grown at less cost than a pound of beef and is worth more. Keep the poultry houses clean, and give them an occasional whitewash ing and the fowls will be free from liefe. Feed plenty of charcoal to the hens for their health and the fine cinders for grit; supply fresh soil and ashes for their dust bath. The homeopathic remedy for roup with its characierisitc cough, tena cious mucous about the beak, with dif ficulty in breathing, is to give aconite. Put one drop in a gill of water and give this to the sick bird to drink. This treatment will have a marvelous effect. Dryness, when we have heavy show ers, is an important requirement in the poultry house. Diseases often originate through dampness produced by a leaky roof. When fowls are con fined in a close, wet apartment, it is impossible to keep them in a healthy condition. If a scaly looking gray powder is seen around the roosts or nest boxes, you may be sure there are mites there. use strong brine, hot or cold, or hot lye water to rout the mites. Whatever is used, apply again in a week or ten days, for a new crop will be "on" by that time. For the poultry amateur, who has not the present means to build a scratching shed for the hens, adopt this simple plan: Make a framework of any old material that may be scattered about the place; weather board all but the south side with corn fodder. Make a roof of the Prepare a little of straw for nests half filled with straw, and the egg supply will be increased. The fodder may be fed to the stock after cold weather is past. a Where coal oil is objected to, of al same. the floor covering and a few Squab Raising. A man who has made a success of alsing squabs for market says that the business will pay one who is willing to give it careful attention. His own stock consisted of 425 pairs of pigeons. These produced in one year 4400 squabs for market. Squabs bring the breeder from $2 to $4 a doz en, but the net profit is calculated by this man to average about $1.50 a year from each original pair of birds. Squabs 12 hours old are called peep ers. When they are two days old they are squeakers and when they are four weeks old they are squealers and are ready for market. The standard size for them at this time is eight pounds to the dozen. The best breeds are said to be hom ers and dragoons. But even with them success cannot be had wit'h poorly se lected birds.—Washington Post. Men Do the Work. In many ways the Chinese are a very clever people, but owing to the foot-binding practice, much of the woik that we consider appropriate for women is dene there by men. The men do all the laundry work, and they monopolize cooking as an occupation. Ruffed Grouse. To friends of the ruffed grouse (hers seems to be a choice of but two alternatives. One is to pass laws protecting them for a eerl&j of years; the other to fix a low bag limit. There are objections to both. If the warding could protect the birds ■in backwoods districts from indis criminate shooting by that class of shcotcrg who will not be governed by such a measure, the long closed season would be better. To punish such men would be easy; to detect them quite a difference story. Hence it ig well to take into consideration the fact that they exist In consider able numbers, and If possible to try to avoid antagonising them. On the other hand, if the bag limit is materially reduced until such time as the supply of grouse wifi to warrant Its restoration to present numbers, all Interests will be catered to, and the law observed by shooters in general. At least that is the as. sumption.—Forest and Stream all If if the we a at seem NO SKIN WAS LEFT ON BODY.
