FEED THE BIRDS
We appeal to the genera' public at this time to establish feeding sta tions for the benefit of our feathered and furred friends. The establish ment of feeding stations duiing the winters of the rast few years has produced wonderful results. The Press has been very kind in publish-- ing articles released by tl)is Depart ment 3ach season to inaugurate an active winter feeding campaign in each and every section of each and every county of Maryland for the protection of our game, song and in sectivorous birds and desirable fur bearing animals. A great many sec tions have paid especial attention to this program and have greatly bene fitted thereby. There should be a special effort made to establish yottr winter feeding program at once and continue aB late as April Ist to 15th following. Every person, not only the agriculturists, orchardists and woodland owners, but residents of the towns and cities of our State, should co-operate by furnishing din ner tables for the song and insecti vorous birds which visit iheir homes. Thousands of pieces of brood stock can be saved by supplying grain at a winter feeding station, thereby as suring the birds or animals susten ance at the time of the year wnen na tural feed is scarcest, and with very little expense or trouble. It is the duty of every man, wo man and child to protect one ot Maryland’s most valuable assets — the birds. The welfare of crops and the economic success of the farm, orchards and forestfe jire closely re lated to the number and kinds of birds present, the vast majority ol which are very beneficial and mem your protection. It is impossible to ascertain the value in dollars ana cents that birds save the public thru the destruction of injurious insects and obnoxious weed seed 3. Feeding Stations Feeding stations are inexpensive. One of the best methods is to use the ordinary field corn, stalks out at the ground, from which the fodder has not been stripped, set in the form 01 an Indian teepee, leaving the bottom open at all times so that Dirds or an imals may escape vermin, if attack ed. Scatter gain inside, the trail leading outward. This method is bound to attract within a short per iod the birds of the neighborhood which will soon learn to avail them selves of the dinner table. Another method is to cut a long pole, nail to post or from tree to tree or place each end in a forged stick and pile brush or corn fodder at the north side, covered with straw, if possible, always leaving open to the south. For the song and insectivorous birds which are so beneficial to oui agriculturists throughout the entire year, a little shelf should be placed on the window sill or erected in a tree or on a fence post, on which suet or grain can be place ddaily and serve as a dinner table for these very beneficial species. Suet and meats can also be tied with a string to the limbs of trees or to poles and the birds will pick it as they need it. English sparrows are very trouble some. The aforementioned foods may be suspended at the end of two feet ot cord tied to the end of a limb in such a manner as it will swing freely in the wind. Only birds ac customed to feeding in the swaying limbs of trees can successfully take food so placed. Mixed grain such as scratch feed, screenings, sweep ings from barn floors and bread crumbs, table scraps and sim ilar foods are very useful at feeding stations and furnish excellent food for birds.

Asherfieid, Har -1 ford county, were awarded first, sec | ond and third places respectively in the annual Ten-Ton Tomato Contest, held in the State this year. Of more than 250 persons enrolled in the ' contest only six were able to grow an average of ten tons or more to the acre. The contestant i receiving ihe first three places were awarded gold watches and the remaining growers, growing ten or more tons to the acre, received certificates to that effect at the annual meeting of the Tri-State Packers’ Association, 1 in Philadelphia. Presentation was made by Dr. Thomas B. Symons, di rector of the Maryland Extension Service. Mr. Brice, the winner of first place produced an average of 13 90 tons of tomatoes to the acre on 3.85 acres. Mr. Smith, second prize win ner, grew an average of 12.33 tons on 2.67 acres; and Mr. Asiierfield, who placed third, produced an aver age of 11.68 tons on 4.03 acres.
