Construction and Care of Hotbeds
Prof. J. R. Shinn, Horticulturist, University of Idaho.
The formation of an agricultural
club on the 19th of December mark
ed an important event in the history
of the agricultural department of
the University of Idaho. The club is
intended to promote a more lively
feeling towards agricultural work
among the students and to interest
the farmers of the state in the col
Seyeral methods will bo used in
carrying out this work, the principal
one of which will be the publishing
of a magazine known as the Idaho
Student Parmer. The first and only
rumber of the present scholastic
jear will be published within a
week. Beginning next fall, a quar
terly will be printed. This maga

most importance to farmers and to
agricultural students.

Under the subject of "Hotbeds,"
Prof. J. R. Shinn of the University
of Idaho writes as follows:
Some kind of a hotbed is an es
sential factor if one is to secure
crops from plans that require an
exceptionally long season for matur
ing. A hotbed also affords an op
portunity to grow certain crops,
such as radishes and lettuce, in ad
vance of the season. Such crops as
tomatoes, cabbages, celery and cauli
flower practically demand that they
Pe started in the hotbed before they
are transplanted to the field, espe
cial'y in the North. As these crops
must ever be regarded as the staple
product of every well-balanced gar
den, the construction and manage
ment of hotbeds is a very timely
topic for the prospective gardener to
consider at this time.
First of all, a hotbed may be de
fined as an inclosure covered with a
sash and furnished with artificial
heat so that the plants are kept in
an actively growing condition. Com
mon stable manure constitutes the
main source for securing this heat.
There are several requirements that
should be noted regarding the kind
snd quality of manure used for hot
beds. It should be practically the
same age throughout, and it should
bt of such texture that when packed
it wijl neither be fluffy nor will it
be soggy. On the other hand, it
should respond with springy elas
ticity beneath the weight of a man,
without fluffing up with the pres
sure Is removed. Horse manure
which has from one-third to one
half straw composing its total bulk
will usually be found to provide this
requisite texture. Moreover, th's
manure should be fresh, in order
that fermentation may proceed rap
The process of fermentation Is
started before the manure is placed
In the hotbed. To accomplish this
the manure is usually piled in long,
shallow, square topped piles; if dry
when piled, it is moistened through
cus, and if it is apt to become wa
ter-soaked, as is the case in rainy
climates, it should be piled under
shelter, for where too much mois
ture Is present manure will remain
cold. The first fermentation is al
lliuat hUlc w uc — -- -
necessary to fork the pile over, dis
tributing the hot manure through
in order to get the
cut the mass,
heat uniformly distributed. When it
h. noticed that steam is coming from
the pile again uniformly, it may be
taken as evidence that the manure
is ready to place iu the hotbed.
After one thoroughly understands
the Important details of preparing
the manure for the purpose of heat
ing, attention should be called to the
location and construction of the pit
and frame. Pits are usually dug
from 24 to 30 inches deep and of
sufficient size to admit the frames
being placed inside their walls. Such
pits should be located near some
much-frequented path in order that
thev are sure to receive the requisite
amount of attention. Always have
the hotbed facing the south and if
such a site is available, put It on the
south side cf some building or t'gbt
board fence or till. Protection
shou'd also be sought from the pre
vailing winds, for winds have a de
cided effect In carrying away the
heat. A well-drained location is also
an essential requirement.
Hotbed sash are 3x6 feet in size
and cost about $3 each. Frames for
these sash are made with the back
12 Inches higher than the front,
the latter being 10 inches. The num
ber of sash and the size of the frame
will depend upon the needs of the
family. Usually one frame 3x6 feet
will afford sufficient hotbed area for
a taml'y of six.
Before the frame is placed upon
the pit the fermenting manure is
placed in the pit and thoroughly
compacted, bringing the level of the,
manure to within three inches of the'
' - — • ' '
surface of the soil. From three to six
inches of good loamy garden soil are
distributed evenly over the surface
of the manure in order to furnish a
seed bed. The seed is not planted
until the excessive heat of the first
few days has begun to subside. By
use of a thermometer the tempera-j
ture may be accurately ascertained
Tomatoes may be sown at a tem
perature of 90 to 80 degrees, cab
bages and lettuce from 80 to TO de

Michigan Faculty Plucks Big Men
for Deficiencies.
The faculty of the University of
Michigan has done more to dash the
athletic hopes of the Wolverines
than any action ever taken by the
faculty representaives of the confer
ence coiieges. Trie "profs" of the
Ann Arbor school have declared
Rowe, Schultz, Wasmund and Ham-'
niond ineligible foe athletic compe
tition because of failure in class
Graham and Hammond have fin
ished their four years of football,
and their loss will not be such a
blow to athletics as the disqualifi
cation of the others. Rowe is the
star two-miler of the Wolverines
and is captain of the track team.
Schultz is captain of the 1908
football team and has been looked to
to uphold the honor of the institu
tion in the shotput this spring.
Wasmund's standing is such that
he may be unable to participate in
football even next fall, for he has
been both "plucked" and "conned,"
so that to be restored to good stand
ing with the faculty he will have
to practically make up the greater
part of this year's work.

Thousands Haye Kidney
Trouble and Never Suspect it
Prevalency of Kidney l>ii;ease.
Most people do not realize the alarm
ing increase and remarkable prevalency
of kidney disease.
While kidney dis
orders are the
most common
diseases that pre
vail, they are
almost tbe last
recognized by
patient and phy
sicians, who con
tent themselves
1 with doctoring the effects, while the orig
inal disease undermines the system.
What To Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-ltoot, tlie great kidney remedy,
fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism,
pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder
and every part of the urinary passage.
It corrects inability to hold water
and scalding pain in passing it, or bad
efiocts following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant ne
cessity of being compelled to go ofteu
during the day, and to get up many
times during the night. The mild and
the extraordinary effect of Swamp Root
is soon realized. It stands the highest
for its wonderful cures of the most dis
tressing cases. If you need a medicine
! you should have the best. Sold by drug
