PLAN TO WEAN CALVES EARLY Much Time and Annoyance Saved if Youngster Is Taken Away When Quite Young. The cow owner who neglects to wean his calf because It is too much trouble is making ten times the trou ble for himself by letting it nurse its mother. It is surprising how soon a calf can be taught to drink from a bucket, if one is determined enough. And the freedom from bothering with a hungry young bull a few weeks inter, charging down, trampling one's feet and insisting upon having his way, Is worth a lot. Good Art. flood art always consists of two things: First, the observation of fact; secondly, the manifesting of human design and authority In the way that fact is told, Great and good art must unite the two; it cannot exist for a U'/»irent hut In ilieir unity.— Uuskiu. CAREFULLY PREPARING POULTRY INSURES HIGHER MARKET PRICE Mi r A Àfi HMfl Preparing Poultry Under Modern Conditions for Market. | (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Not a day passes that insjieetors employed by city, state or federal gov ernment, do not condemn food of one kind or another Because il is unfit for human consumption. Sometimes this :* due to deliberate adulteration, an intention to defraud the purchasers, but more often it is the" result of im proper packing, neglect to consider temperatures to be encountered In transporting from point of origin to destination, or failure to consider the time which must necessarily elapse before tlie product is likely to reach the consumers' tables. All this entails not only great loss in money, likely to be reflected in Irrites demanded of the public, but aiso it endangers the public health, because occasionally some unworthy article slips through inspection and is served as food. Enough food products .'•poll every week to form a very im portant part of the amount needed by the people; and practically ail of it might la* saved through intelligence and care on the part of tiie producers t in] shippers.' After your chickens are fattened and ready to kill, it will pay you to study :ae methods of killing, bleeding, pick ing. chilling and packing described fully in bureau of chemistry circu lars: 3, "How to I'ick Chickens;" 52. "How to Wrap Heads"; 01, "How to Kill and lilted Market Poultry." Is sued by the Department of Agricul ture. these circulars may lie had by application to the division of publica tions. The man who hopes to suc ceed should know everything possible I bout liis proposed market, and its de IMl'l'.S, Broilers in Demand. Ordinarily the demand is for broil ers of three sizes—squab broilers, small broilers and large broilers. Squab broilers weigh, dressed, from three-quarters to' one pound; small broilers, the size most in demand the greater part of the year, weigh from one to one and a quarter pounds each, and large broilers from one and one half to two pounds. Broilers may be sold alive or dressed, in tlie discretion of the ship per.; but if dressed, tills should be done according to the demands of the market, and these demands one can learn only by inquiry and study. Get ting the product ready for the buyer in the public market lias much to do with the price received. The appear ance of tiie article, the manner in INCREASED NITROGEN SUPPLY Element May Be Added by Proper Soil Treatment, Rotation of Crops and Phosphate. The supply of nitrogen, the most costly element of food for plants, can be increased through proper soil treatment, rotation of crops, the ad dition of phosphate and limestone and the growing and plowing under of legumes. All stähle manure is to be utilized, and on the older, worn soils of the East and South some commer cial nitrogen may be profitably used. Following a crop that is a heavy nitro gen consumer with one that is a light user is good farm prac tice. PLAN TO DESTROY CUTWORMS Pests Work at Night and May B: Killed With Aid of Paddle and Flashlight. Cutworms sometimes give consider aille trouble if the nights are cool anc the weather unsettled. A good waç to get rid of cutworms in the gardet is to go out In the evening after dari with a flashlight and paddle and kii the pests. They may lie found on the surface nt work at night. It will taki hut a short time to get rid of cut worms in the garden. This is à quick er and more reliable way than usiiij poisoned mash. GIVE HARNESS PROPER CAR; Made of Good Leather and Heavy Enough, Set Will Last for at Least Fifteen Years. Harness made of-good leather and heavy enough for the work required of it will last for many years if eared for properly. It Is more economical to buy harness that Is too heavy than to buy that which is too light for the work. With good care, harness of tiie proper weight and quality will last at least 15 ygarR. and in many eases har ness used on the farm has been In service for 25 years or longer. which it is packed, and its condition— these are the points that make a rep utation for the shipper. Temperature to Maintain. The temperature of chickens when they are alive is 103 degrees Fahren heit. This must be reduced after kill ing to 32 degrees Fahrenheit or less before they can be packed for long hauls in refrigerator cars. The time required to chill fowls usually is about 24 hours, and the packer must be sure that the body cavity, us well as lbe skin and tiesh, are free from lient be fore the birds leave the chill room. Failure to observe Ibis requirement is responsible for much of the ill-con ditioned poultry found in the public markets. The range of temperature permitted, too. is small. Below 30 de grees Fahrenheit ;he flesh is frosted ; above 35 degrees Fahrenheit decay proceeds too rapidly to permit of long hauls to distant markets, of course, the birds can be frozen after they are chilled, and so shipped, and this is a very excellent plan, especially if the haul is across a hot country, say the specialists in the Department of Agri culture. Packing for Market. It is customary to pack broilers with tiie breasts up, and the feet bidden. Tiie prevailing method at present, where refrigeration is available, is to pack tiie chickens in small boxes hold ing' a dozen each, but small boxes suit able for one or two chickens have re cently been placed on the market. If the business is to lie' permanent the containers should carry the farm name, or the name of the shipper if the farm lias no name. An attractive advertisement on the box has a great deal to do with marketing, a fact proved long ago to the satisfaction of shrewd business men. Small packages are becoming more and more popular. Two layers of chickens in a box are being discarded for a single layer, it being realized that refrigeration is more perfect if the carcasses do not touch, and if pressure on such tender tissue as chicken 'muscle is eliminated as far as possible. On this account heads are wrapped In waxed paper and turned back where they do not rest against the soft flesh of the breast or thighs. No longer does the packer thrust old cocks, broiling chickens and fowls indiscriminately into a big su gar barrel, pressing them down in his effort to pack tightly, and so bruising tiie flesh and tearing the skin. KEEPING DOWN STABLE FLIES Give Stable Refuse Proper Care and Stack Straw So That It Will Not Be Breeding Hole. The numbers of stable files cun be kept down by earing properly for stable refuse and by properly stac king or otherwise disposing of straw in a way that will not make It attractive as a breeding place for tlie flies. Flies cause much distress among ani mals and at times heavy tosses. Con trol measures are described in Farm ers' Bulletin 1007. It can be had free of charge by writing Division of Pub lications. Washington. D. C. BIG VALUE OF FOREST TREES Material Supplied for Use on Farm, Such as Poles and Wood—Pro tect Live Stock. Forest trees grown on the fann add to its value and beauty. They supply material for farm use, such as poles, posts and cordwood; and they afford shelter foi live stock, and protect crops and buildings from the licit winds of summer and the cold winds of winter. Moreover, they often can be grown successfully on soils too poor or on slopes too stec p for tbe success ful production of the ordinary agricul tural crops. APPLY LIMESTONE ANY TIME Usually Done to Best Advantage in Late Summer When Teams and Men Are Available. Limestone may he applied at any time when men and teams are avail able, imt this usually is done to liest advantage in late summer, fall or eariy winter. It will seldom. If ever, pay to put on less than a ton to the acre, and more should lie used if the soil is very sour. Applications usually are not made more frequently than once in four to six years. The usual appll •ution varies from one to two and one : If terns an acre. wS! Much Depends on Distribution ol Eoth Flesh and Masses of Fat Over Carcass. FLESH OF FEMALE IS MILDER Exercise Toughens Fibers and Connec nect.ve Tissues and Lessens Amount of Fat—Do Not Feed Fowls Onions or Garlic. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Desirable quality in the flesh of poultry intended for table use depends on tiie flavor of the flesh ; on the tex ture; on tiie amount of flesh in pro portion to the weight of the bird; and on tiie distribution of both the flesh and the larger masses of fat over the carcass. Other tilings being equal, the flesh of tlie females usually is milder than that of the males, say home economic specialists of tbe United States Department of Agriculture. Capoulzing makes tbe flavor of cocks more delicate, tends to produce finer and less tough muscle fibers, and in creases the size of the masses of meat, especially in the breast. Effects of Age on Flavor. Age tends to increase flavor, at first advantageously, hut later usually, dis advantageously. Most very young birds have a flavor too mild to be sat isfactory for stewing or fricassee, but make splendid eating as broilers or fryers. The delicacy of flavor usual ly is lost in decidedly old birds. As tbe bird grows older, the proportion of flesh to bone usually increases, at least up to the period of full matur ity. Often the large masses of flesh found on such birds can be utilized more satisfactorily than the smaller ones found on young and scrawny chickens. Exercise affects tbe flavor and tex ture of poultry flesh, as in any kind of meat. It toughens the fibers and the connective tissues, and lessens tbe amount of fat. It may also affect tbe distribution of flesh on the carcass in creasing tbe naturally strong, tough muscles rather than the less-used, ten der ones. In some birds, notably chickens, the exercise can he con trolled. Almost any poultry, however, can safely be penned for a few (lays, before killing. Tbe difference between tbe flesh of a plump chicken and of a lean one of similar kind and age is due princi pally to the fnt present. The skill of the fnttener. from the consumer's ;f ! SHY m *4% Caponizing Makes the Flavor of Cocks More Delicate and Increases the Size of the Masses of Meat, Especially in the Breast. standpoint, lies not only in producing the desirable amount of fat at the least expense for food and care, but also in getting the fat well distributed through the flesh rather than merely in masses within the carcass or under the skin. Such large musses have lit tle value for table purposes, and un less they are carefully saved and used for cooking they are practically wast ed. When the amount of flesh is in creased by the fat between the fillers the proportion of edible material is increased, and the larger masses of meat make better portions in serving. The qualify of the flesh is also im proved. Importance of Special Feeding. Chickens fattened on a mash of grain and milk acquire a delicate fla vor. Special feeding often imparts a very desirable flavor. This is found in cnnvasbuck ducks, for example, which are considered at their best when they have fed on wild celery. Celery and chestnuts sometimes are used to give turkey flesh a special fla vor. Birds intended for table use should not be allowed to eat onions or wild garlic habitifttlly, because the sulphur compounds in these plants pass over into the flesh and give It a taste objectionable to most persons. COAL ASHES AS FERTILIZER Their Use Is Mainly to Loosen Up Soli and Make It More Workable— Most Useful on Clay. Coal ashes have little value as ferti lizer, their use beiug mainly to loosen the soil and make it more workable. They are most valuable on heavy clay soil, but should be screened to take out coarse material before they are applied, and should lie spread evenly over the surface and thoroughly mixed with the soil. Wood ashes have ferti lizing value, hut should be applied be fore they become leached.
