FACTORIES OF GREAT NEED Hogs Are Essential -to Manufacture Cheap Leguminous Crops That We Must Grow to Increase Pro ductiveness of Our Soils. ' (By G. H. ALFORD.) We spend more money for pork than we do for education and religion. We Bend millions of dollars to the north and west for pork and pork productions. We are paying 15 cents a pound for pork, and the records of the experiment stations and the actual experience of hundreds of farmers show that pork can easily be produced in this territory for three cents a pound. We urge capitalists to build fac tories and encourage the building of factories by exempting them from tax ation for a period of years. We ex empt factories from taxation, and at the same time send money out to pay for pork manufactured elsewhere. We certainly need factories of all kinds in all towns and cities, and especially do we need hogs to manufacture the cheap leguminous crops that we must grow to increase the productiveness of our soils, the grasses, peanuts, peas potatoes and the like Into pork and Dork Droducts. The hogs to manu faeture grasses and grains into pork will declare by far the larger divi dends. It is not necessary for the farmer to take stock in cotton factories in nrripr to be a manufacturer. Let him keep plenty of good hogs on his farm and he will be one of the most prosperous manufacturers of useful Droducts. On a farm where good pastures can be had and corn produced in aDun dance, the hog will be found to be a sure profit producer one year with an other. Good pastures, peanuts, peas in corn, potatoes, chufas, rape, sor ghum and peas and corn means plenty of cheaD Dork. The first Investment Is small and he is the ouickest money maker of all He will live and grow fat on the waste nroducts of the farm that other stocK will not eat. He is ready for market almost any time and will bring the top price if fat. He multiplies rapidly, and if we only give him good pastures, pure water and a little corn. He will do the rest. Bermuda grass alone will keep a hog in good growing condition all tne summer. Excellent winter and early spring pastures can be obtained by sowing hairy vetch, white, red, or Dun clover seed broadcast on the Bermuda or carpet grass sod early in .the fall. Oats, rye, rape or orchard grass plant ed early in October furnish good win ter pasture for hogs. Peanuts and sweet potatoes, chufas and artichokes planted in April make excellent feed for hogs in the fall and winter. Two plantings of peas can be made, one of an early variety and one of a late va riety, in April. Two varieties can be planted at the same time again in June or July. Very little corn is nec essary. . We can no longer raise cotton to buy pork. We must raise cheap crops of peanuts, cow peas, sorghum, arti chokes, red clover, rape and so on for hogs to graze. No man has ever been able to give a sensible reason for growing cotton to pay for bacon and .lard instead of growing cheap legumin ous crops to raise hogs. No man has ever been able to give a sensible rea son for feeding corn from weaning time to killing time instead of raising hogs on pasture grasses and cheap Amounts of Manure from Different Stock 1000 Lbs.

If we wish to make the greatest success raising hogs, we must grow cheap crops for the bogs to graze. The following la taken from bulletin No. 107, by Prof. J. W. Fox, from the Mississippi delta station: "We wish to call particular attention to the im portance of a pea field, planted in corn at the last working, as a factor in cheap pork production. We made an experiment last fall to determine the value of such a pasture, the result of which should be very gratifying to the southern farmers, who have a mo nopoly on such a pasture, the result em farmer cannot grow peas planted in corn, but must give them the use Cf the land during the entire growing weason." After the corn was gathered, 51 spring pigs were turned into the pea teld of 17 acres. They had no addi tional feed. The gain made from the teas was 2,893 pounds, or 170 pounds per acre. At six cents per pound, this ' ' ' " ' nirt nn r filiCCIT! MBMMI""""""'MI eives a value for the ps of f 10 rr rrr acre. And this la net, as the hie did their own harvesting. Also the manure and humus from the stalks, vines and seeds mere left on the land. Hy tests made at the station for two years to determine the value cf the pas grown In the corn as a fertilizer, it has been found that they increase the succeeding cotton crop by 110 pounds of lint per acre The following succession of crops is recommended by the Louisiana ex periment station: "Sow oats the latter part of September for fall and winter grazing, counting about 15 or 20 head of hogs per acre. Sow red clover or crimson clover In OcAober to be pas tured after the oats, late in January, and through February and March and April. Sow sorghum early In March to which transfer hogs from clover. After harvesting oats, plant Mexican June corn and cow peas In a portion of the land, and peanuts and sweet potatoes on the remainder. Use corn and a portion in peanuts for finishing ofT the hogs for the market, or slaugh ter at home." Professor Lloyd, one of the best posted agriculturists in the south, sug gests the following plan for a hog Forage Crops Make Cheap Pork . Value ol One Acre por Returns I M.

Cow peas and peanuts planted in April and May will furnish grazing for July, August and Septem ber, October and November. Arti chokes planted in April and May will furnish grazing December and Janu ary. Dwarf essex rape planted In Febru ary and March will furnish grazing in May and June. Dwarf essex rape plant ed in August and September will fur nish grazing In December and Jan uary. Bermuda grass, with white or burr clover, will serve as a permanent pasture and furnish grazing a greater part of the spring, winter and sum mer." Cow peas without grain have so far given better results at our experiment stations than any other crop tested. One season the peas were grown on very poor hill land and produced 350 pounds of pork per acre. The next season the crop was grown on bottom land and produced 4S3 pounds of pork per acre. Tne nogs were lurnea in when the first pods began to ripen. Professor Duggar, at the Alabama station, found an acre of Spanish pea nuts on poor, gravelly land produced 600 pounds of live weight of hogs, and an acre of cow peas about 400 pounds No country on earth has such advan tages for raising cheap pork, and yet no country raises so little of it. We are told by a bulletin issued by the Louisiana station that one acre of Spanish peanuts grown on poor land at Calhoun contained 192 pounds of nitrogen, worth at commercial fertil izers' value at least $23. An acre of velvet beans contained 191 pounds and an acre of cow peas 108 pounds These crops made from two to three tons of feed stuffs richer in food ele ments than wheat bran. When such feed stuffs can be harvested by hogs without serious loss of fertilizing value, is there any excuse for poor land and the shipping of pork and lard into thesouth? CARING FOR MOLTING FOWLS Process Is No More Critical Than Lay Ing Stunt, Provided Hens Are Given Sufficient Feed. Some people make a dreadful fuss about the poor molting hen, while this molting process is just as nat ural as it is for a hen to live and breathe, and no more critical than the laying stunt, provided the hens are fed enough to keep up the waste of the body and at the same time manu facture the new feathers, says the Field and Farm. The sooner the feath ers are grown the sooner the eggs will come and to hurry them along as fast as possible the fowls should bo fed liberally. Give them all the mash they will eat, and a good feeding of grain at night. To many folks It looks like throw ing away money to practice heavy feeding while no eggs are coming in, but this is one of the Becrets of get ting winter eggs. The molting sea son is the most critical period in the life of a hen. Growth of new feath ers is a heavy strain on vitality. As the hen is fed on the average ranch It requires from two to four months to recover from the effects of It. By giving the necessary materials with which to make the feathers so that a hen will not have to make them from the tissues of hor body, she will be ready to work as soon as she hhi her new plumage and often before Pullets should be handled in the st-n way. 24 22 NOT HARD TO SATISFY HIM bUMrtU nis acLr-wiu . , ap ill Many Will See a Peculiar Reason for Seemingly Modest Request Made by the Jew.

Mr. Blank (we've got to call him that because he's really a very decent fellow, and he'd kill us if we told his real name) Is first tenor in a glee club. He sings In a choir, too. Every body likes him. The other, night a bunch of young people met for a social session at a certain house In the suburbs. They ate and danced and they sang. And when It was all over the prettiest young woman there she hadn't been escorted thither by any chosen cav alier said: "I walk home, but It's a lonesome walk and I'm afraid, here have been holdups in this part of town. So I choose Mr. Blank to see me safe home." On the way home Mr. Blank was considerably swelled up. The prettiest girl had chosen him from a crowd of personable bachelors, and his feelings of self-satisfaction were excusable. He couldn't resist saying: "Why did you think I was the strongest and bravest man there to night?" "I- didn't," answered the girl. "I picked you because I knew you could holler the loudest!" Cleveland Plain-dealer. Something to Be Thankful For. In her dressing room one evening Sarah Bernhardt summoned one of her attendants, and ordered her to bring some peaches from the nearest shop. Either the maid misunderstood the order or she thought, as the say ing goes, "That any old fruit would do," for she came back a few min utes later with half a dozen plump, juicy pears in a basket. At the moment Bernhardt was de claiming to a friend about the dearth of good new plays, and anybody would have thought she was too ab sorbed in her lamentations to notice the maid's mistake. She took a pear from the basket slowly and, appar ently, unconsciously, and the maid turned to leave the room. In an unlucky moment the girl paused at the door and looked round. Then, with astonishing swiftness and accuracy of aim, Bernhardt raised her hand and the peaT flew through space, smashing itself to a juicy pulp on the girl's face.

"Tea, as everybody knows, is made from leaves, while coffee is derived from berries or beans. Just here Is wheje something has been overlooked, in the opinion of a scientific investi gator. The leaves of the coffee plant are not only available for making a beverage, but they possess properties which make them more valuable than the coffee beans. In appearance and fragrance the dried coffee leaves very much resem ble those of the tea plant. An infu sion of them being made, Just as in the case of ordinary tea, an aromatic beverage is produced that is bitter to the taste, but not disagreeably so, and which contains almost as much theine a"s real tea, while there is a much smaller proportion of tannin.
