VISIT ENGLISH STOCK FARMS Youths Given Opportunity to Inspect Cattle and Horse Farms While on Trip to Royal Agricultural Society Show. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) During a year made notable by American successes in international contests, not the least Important event was the winning of the Northcliffe gold cup by tile team of Maryland boys sent to England by the South eastern Fair association, Atlanta, (hi., after defeating ail club teams in the live-stock judging competition among boys' agricultural club members in the United States. These boys—Warren Rice, Joseph Glaeklcn, anil George Worrllow—all of Cecil county, recent ly returned to their homes, with ex periences that fall to the lot of few boys. In competing with the English team for tlie cup offered by Lord North cllffe, publisher of the London Dally Mail, July , r j, tlie American hoys Judged classes of itrillsh Frlesians, Guern seys, and Dairy .Shorthorns, The •English team, one member of which Presenting the Gold Cup. wus a girl, was selected from about 250 club members now enrolled in work with gardens, pigs, poultry, calves, and bees, under the leader ship of the London Daily Mail. This work was begun two years ago as a result of observations made by Lord Northcliffe during a visit to the United States In 1010. The English enroll ment is insignilicant when compared with the half million club members in this country, but it promises to be the beginning of a popular educational movement in England. Before attending the Itoyal Agricul tural Society show, where they com peted for the gold cup, the American boys visited Edinburgh, parts of Scot land famous for Shorthorn cattle and Clydesdale horses, a number of Eng lish stock farms, and a typical coun ty fair at Doncaster. At the royal show they attended one of the an nual auction sales that drew buyers from Denmark, France, Spain, and even from the Far East. Following the show the party took a Hying trip to the Frdnch battlefields, reaching Paris in time to witness the celebra tion of Bastile Day, the French “Fourth of July.” The boys were ac companied by E. G. Jenkins, stall.* boys’ club agent of the Maryland ex tension service, and C. L. Chambers of the United States Department of Agriculture. “Our boys impressed the English breeders with their thorough knowl edge and ready appraisement ot the animals shown them,” said Mr. Cham bers. “They were keenly alert to the opportunities that came to them to study the results of generations of painstaking work by English live stock breeders. The contest gave them an opportunity to demonstrate to old England the benefits resulting from the inspiration ami training that a half million American farm boys and girls receive every year under the guidance of the United States Depart ment of Agriculture and the state agricultural eoleges.” COST OF GRADING FOR ROADS government Statistics Show That Price in Recent Months Has Gradually Declined. The cost of grading for highway construction apparently has reached a stable condition, according to statistics of the bureau of public roads ol the United States Department of Agricul ture. The average cost per cubic yard for grading on federal-aid roads rose from 38 cents In 1017 to * peak price of 0G cents In 1020, and lias since, gradually declined. On federal-aid work contracted for In the lust three months the average price per cubic yard fut the whole i United Stntes was 33 q*i#s in April, .32 cents in May, $nd 34 «fl$ts in June. The cost of other Items entering Into, rood work also shows a general ten dency toward stabilization, although in many cases not as marked as that for earthwork. CHEYENNE WELLS RECORD METHODS OF WHEAT CULTURE IN KANSAS Surprising Success in Sowing in the Stubble. Plan Ha« Averaged Higher Yields Than Plowing and Nearly as Much aa the Early Plowing. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) In western Kansas where a large part of the cultivated area Is sown to wheat year after year, the greatest cultural probleih in terms of acres Involved is how to prepure wheat stubble for wheat. For the past 14 years this problem has been studied at the Fort Hays branch station, and the results have just been published by the United States Department of Agriculture in Department Bulletin lUiM, Methods of Winter-Wheat Pro duction at the Fort Hays Branch Sta tion, by John S. Cole and A. L. Hull sted. Tills experiment station is in Ellis county, Kansas, which is in the west ern tier of the solid block of “mil lion-bushel” wheat counties in that state. Statistics of the Kansas state board of agriculture show that farm ing in tills section has been stabilized for BO years by devoting nearly three fourths of the cultivated acreage to winter wheat. During this period there has been no change in .yields, the average for the county from 1801 to 1020, inclusive, being only 0.0 bushels to the acre. All this time wheat lias been grown continuously after wheat by several methods. In this region there are 00 days between harvest and seeding. By plowing 72 days after harvest and 17 days before seeding, an average of 10.5 bushels per acre Ims been pro duced. tlie lowest yielding method tried, but practically the same as the average for the county. Early plow ing. 22 days after harvest and 58 days ibefore seeding, Ims averaged 14.0 bushels per acre. Early plowing subsoiled has averaged 17 bushels, and land listed instead of early plowed has averaged 17.2 bushels. Land al ternately fallowed and cropped lb wheat has averaged 20.2 bushels. From 1014 to 1020, inclusive, sur prising success has resulted from sowing wheat In the stubble either disked or uncultivated. This method has averaged higher yields than late plowing and nearly as much us early plowing. Various other important experiment al results are recorded in the bulletin, but' the most important announce ment is that the 00-day period be tween harvest and seeding offers the most fertile Held for the control of yields. The more completely this is made a cultivation period the higher will yields rise above the minimum at which they now rest. An increase of 50 per cent is not Impossible, and some part of it, say the investigators, should be realized through greater timeliness and efficiency of operations. SUDAN GRASS IS POPULAR Plant Well Adapted to Certain Condi tions; Supplies Some Needs Better Than Other Crops.

It has also been found that when reasonable care is used there Is very little danger of prussic acid poisoning; in fact, when the pas ture is properly handled there is no danger in the region east of the 08th meridian. West of that line the dan ger is practically negligible unless the grass Is injured by drought. New evidence regarding Sudan grass pasture Is being provided each year by farmers and experiment stations. In New Mexico, irrigated Sudan pas ture carried two head of milk cows to the acre, and enough butterfat was produced to give a return of $75 an acre after the cost of the grain feed had • been deducted. ' A prominent fnrtnpr in central Kansas has a Sudan grass posture every year for his dairy herd and claims that.the butter churns in from.five to ten mlfmtes and- IMlrm. md well flnvored, while that from alfal fa-f&l hard to father add soft. Rheumatism and Dyspepsia Are Soon Ended Victims of stomach trouble and rheumatism often find that when their stomach is set in order, the rheuma tism disappears. Thousands of people everywhere hnve testified that Tanlnc has freed then, of both troubles simul taneously. Mr. Robert Trotter, 148 State St., St. Paul, Minn., says: “About a year ago I began to go down hill. Sour stomach and rheuma tism in my arms and shoulders kept me in misery all the time. Since tak ing Tanlac all my aches and pains hnve gone, and my stomach is In fine shape. I’m glad to endorse such a fine medicine." Badly digested food fills the whole systepi with poisons. Rheumatism and many other complaints not gen erally recognized as havihg their ori gin in the stomach quickly respond to the right treatment. Get a bottle to day at any goM druggist.—Advertise ment.
