IN FATTENING TURKEY INCREASE
SLOWLY EXTRA AMOUNT OF FEED
Well-Fattened Turkeys Always
(Prepared r tha United States Dtpartmant
Once upon n time every farm fam
ily had Its flock of turkeys, which sup
plied plenty of birds for the home
tnhle and some for the tables of those
who lived In the towns. Turkey rais
ing In recent yenrs, however, has de
creased, one of the main reasons for
this decline being that as the popula
tion of the country Increased farming
became more Intensive nnd the area
suitable for turkey raising was re
duced. Turkeys require plenty of
range In order to thrive.
Mony fnrmers, however, still con
sider turkeys a profitable side line on
the farm, nnd about the first of Oc
tober begin to consider how to put
more flesh on their turkey flock.
Feeding Turkey Flock.
During the summer nnd early fall
turkeys can find an abundance of
feed on the average farm. Grasshop
pers nnd other Insects, weeds nnd
grass seeds, green Ntegetntlon, berries
and grnln picked up In the fields nil
go to make up the turkey's dally ra
tion. When tills nnturnl feed Is plen
tiful, very little need be added until
fattening time except for the purpose
'of bringing the turkeys every night
to roost nnd to keep them from strny
Ing from home. For tills purpose one
feed of grain every night Just before
rdbstlng time Is sufficient.
Fattening for Market.
In fattening turkeys for the market
an excellent pinn Is to begin about Oc
tober 1 to feed night nnd morning,
feeding only so much at a time that
the birds go away a little hungry, and
gradually Increasing the quantity un

the Fly Weevil.

(Prepared by the United fltatea Department
The Insects nre our most formid
able rivals In the struggle for exist

alone with Insects which nttack fruits
and growing crops. It must deal with
Insects thiit nffect grains nnd foods In

thnt carry disease to man himself, that

One of these Insect enemies against
which the burenu of entomology hns
been directing n fight, Is the an-
goumols grnln moth, popularly known
In this country ns the fly weevil. It
Is primarily a pest of wheat and corn
In this country, but nffects all cerenl
grains. It Is particularly Injurious in
the Southern states, and does little
harm north of centrnl New Jersey, ex
cept to cereals In storage.
It is second to the rice, or black,
weevil In Its capacity to dniuitge
grain. Often entire crops of corn and
whent are ruined. Wheat loses
through moth attack about f2 per cent
of weight. Corn loses from 12 to 24
per cent. Bread made from affected
grain Is worthless. The moth nlso dnts
barley, oats, buckwheat, sorghum,
miio, rice, beans, chickpeas and cow
pens. This Is mentioned ns nn exnmple of
avoldnble Insect pests which the

urging farmers to fight the pest sys

threshing, proper stornge, nnd fumi

It Is only by constant and Intelli

before marketing. IJy the latter feed
ing Is meant that they are fed until
they lenve the food and walk away.
Some turkey rnlsers feed wheat and
oats during the first of the fattening
season, gradually chnnglng to corn ns
the weather becomes cooler. The ma
jority, however, begin feeding heavllj
on corn nbout November 1 ; nnd, since
turkeys nre not accustomed to such
heavy feeding, scours often result, es
peclolly If new corn Is used. New
corn enn be fed safely If the turkeys
nre gradually accustomed to It by
feeding lightly at flr3t ond more heuv.
Lose Flesh When Penned.
Confining turkeys during the fatten
ing season to prevent their using so
much energy in ranging lias been tried
to some extent, but with very little
success, say poultry specialists of the
United States Department of Agricul
ture. Those confined to a pen eat
heartily for two or tl-Vre days, but
nfter this they lose (heir appetite
and begin to lose flesh rapidly. On
allowing tlicm free range again, they
pick ;ip rapidly and arc soon eating
ns heartily as ever. The better meth
od Is to allow them free range, as It
keeps them In good, healthy condition,
and they are always eager to be fed.
Nuts of various kinds are a nnturnl
fattening feed picked up by the tur
keys on the rnnge. Of these beech
nuts, chestnuts, peenns, nnd acorns nre
those most commonly found by them.
Many turkey growers In Texas depend
solely upon acorns for fattening their
turkeys, and when the mast Is plenti

DEEP PLOWING IS BIG NEED
Soils Are Getting Poorer, Producing
' Less Per Acre, Thereby Cut
ting Farmer's Income.
Deep plowing Is the grentest need
on many fnrnis. It Is a fact that soils
nre getting poorer, producing less per
acre and less In the nggregate year
nfter yenr nnd less profit per year on
many farms. Mnny of our soils nre
tired nnd sick; like their owners they
are overworked, underfed, nnd under
paid. The problem is to get more from
the soil without greater expense.
One way Is to deepen the soil, let
ting In air and moisture nnd permit
nature to make this sub-soil or under
soil fertile. The roots of plnnts can
not penetrate deep enough under the
present conditions on mnny farms to
get enougb plnnt food nnd sufficient
moisture to yield a normnl crop. What
Is the remedy? Plow deeper.
Deeper plowing should be done in
the foil. Many soils should he sub-
soiled, others should be plowed deeper
with ordinary breaking plows. What
ever the method, the soil must be
made deeper. Plow deeper.
ERADICATION OF CORN SMUT
Fresh Manure Should Not Be Applied
and Rotation of Crops Should

things not to he done to combat suc
cessfully the smut of corn which hn.'i
dnmnged the big crop of this year lit
various parts of the Northwest.
Fresh manure should not bo put on
corn ground ; n rotation of crop-'
should he practiced. Spores germinate
het and multiply In fresh manure,
says K. C. Stakman, plant disease spe
cialist of the University farm, St.
Paul. Some other crop thnn corn
should, be planted on lnnd growing
smutted corn this yenr.
Corn smut Is not poisonous, says
Doctor Stakmnn; on the contrary, In
its early stages It Is edible for hit
man beings. It may occur on any part
of the corn plnnt above, ground It
has been found that corn smut spores
are killed in the silo.

Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never
Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from reports from druggists
who are constantly in direct touch with
the public, there is one preparation that
has been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healing
influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is
soon realized. It stands the highest for
its remarkable record of success.
An examining physician for one of the
prominent Life Insurance Companies, in
sn interview on the subject, made the as
tonishing statement that one reason why
so many applicants for insurance are re
jected is because kidney trouble is so
common to the American people, and the
large tnajority of those whose applica
tions are declined do not even suspect
that they have the disease.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root is on sale
at all drug stores in bottles of two sizes,
medium and large. However, if you wish
first to test this great preparation send
ten cents to Dr. Kilmer & Co., Bingham
