AFTER MRKULTURCftHOm CCONOWS HAD SUM TWJ&1T3YUHS
STATISTICS FROM 3M SCHOOLS
^WRIGHT COUNTY, IOWA
(By W. C. PAI.MER, Arrtcultural Editor,
North Dakota Agricultural College.)
The teaching of agriculture in the
rural schools is very Important. A
person likes to do what one can do
well, and again, the will to do springs
from the reassuring knowledge that
we can do.
The effect of training in agriculture
on boys is well illustrated in the ac
companying diagram. The girls were
also given instruction in home eco
nomics. It will be noticed that before
agriculture and home economics were
taught that 157 of the 164 boys wanted
to leave the farm, and 163 of the 174
girls wanted to do likewise. After ag
riculture and home economics had
been taught in these same schools the
question was again asked the pupils
In these same- 3£ schools as to what
they^ wanted lo do. Now 162 of the
174 Jjoys^ wanted to_stay on the farm,
while 161 oTth? 178 glrTs expressed a
$esire to become"" home makers and
farmer? A wonderTuT change in three
yearly It meant changing an almost
unanimous desire of leaving the farm
to an almost unaniniWis desire to stay

Q.—What Ib the best rotation ofj
crops for North Dakota?
A.—There is no best rotation. Dif
ferent soils and different Individual
fanners will want different rotations
as rotation should have a grass crop
for one or two years, a legume crop to
help up the nitrogen supply in the soil,
cultivated crops such as corn and po
tatoes, and the small grains, such as
wheat, oats, barley and flax.
A good rotation for western North
Dakota Is used on the demonstration
farm at Ross. It has one field in air

in rotation for that period wheat,'

on the farm. From this it is evident
that the foundation for a successful
agriculture is the teaching of agricul
ture and home economics In the rural
schools. There can be no successful,
no permanent agriculture, if the boyB
and girls want to leave the farm.
It is not only the knowledge that Is
imparted, but also the changed atti
tude of the teacher. When agriculture
has to be taught a study has to be
made of it. This results in finding out
that agriculture is a great big subject
worthy of the deepest study—a sub
ject that needs to be respected In
stead of despised and looked down
upon. This attitude on the part of the
tcfecher has a big influence on the pu
pils. Too often the teacher is a young
girl from the city who thinks that the
farm is most lonesome and uninterest
ing and a good deal of this is Impart
ed to the ^iidren^
The teaching of agriculture and
home economics in the rural schools
will do more than any other thing to
keep the boys and girls on the farm, to
build up a permanent system of farm

ACTING IN BUSINESS MANNER
When Fermers Co-Operate They
Be Able to Reach Consumer, Se
curing All Profits.
(By W. C. PALMER, Agricultural Editor,
North Dakota Agricultural College.)
Co-operation means working togeth
er. The corporation is one kind of
co-operation. Take a railroad for in
stance. A great many people 'own It.
4. great many people have put their
together, and for the reason
mofcv. could accomplish more In
that thto, by each one working
that way tb^
independently. 'Tked independ-

miles, etc. There wouldn't be a de
cent coach or engine. When going a
distance of ten miles it might mean
changing cars ten times.
That is a good deal the status of
farming today. Like that kind of
railroading it doesn't get very far.
When the people who want to build
railroads co-operate they can make a
great system that reaches for thou
sands of miles. When farmers co-op
erate they will be able to reach clear
to the consumer while when each
works Independently he cannot reach
any farther than his nearest market,
which means to pay what the other
fellow asks and take what the other
fellow wants to give. No business in
that. When farmers cooperate they
can act in a business way. They -can
bargain with the consumer as well as
with the manufacturer. Then tl|e
farmers will' get all the profits that
there is in farming. This will put
farming on the same business founda
tion as railroading and other organ'
Feeding Potatoes to Hogs.
When potatoes are cheap the sur
plus can be used to advantage in
feeding to hogs. Four bushels of po
tatoes are worth as much as a bushel
of wheat to feed if they are fed right
ly. The best way is to cook them and
then mix a little grain with them af
ter they are cooked, adding a little
salt. Hogs like salt the same as other
animals and it will not hurt them, as
same are led to believe.
Milk is good to feed in connection
with the potatoes. The grain should
be ground to get the best results. If
the pigs can have good alfalfa hay
which is not too coarse they will m&ke
good gains on the potatoes and hay
alone without grain.
Dark Stall Hurts Eyes.
The usefulness, good health, and
especially the eyesight, of a horse or
a cow in a close, dark stall will be
so affected that their period of prime

Nubbins for Calves.
Now and then there will be nub

can be spared for the calves. They
will turn them to good advantage.
