It is not always a good plan to hold wheat long after threshing, but gen erally it is better to hold it for awhile and not dump it during threshiutf time. Wheat is then usually at its lowest price. It may rise and it may not; but if more farmers would store their wheat for even a few weeks, it would help to keep the price at a high er level. To realize the best prices, wheat should be marketed uniformly 1 throughout the year, about the same I amount each month. Then there would be no gluts and scarcities to unsettle prices. A farmer who held his wheat even one month this year might have found that a war was coming that v ould make his crop vastly more val uable. As it is, wheat may go to a dollar and a half, depending on the duration of the war. This was a good wheat year. Prob ably 1915 will not be so good, but the chances are that wheat will remain high through another year, as well as other farm products. For that reason it looks to be the wise tbin to sow a good acreage this fall and to fall plow for a good acreage' of corn.' It j goells equaiy ccrtain that beef, pork and mutton will also rul high in price and that it will pay well to take good care of the live stock. Mules will advance in value and probably horses, so don't sacrifice the stock on account of a little shortage in the feed. While it will be good policy to raise large crops next year, it will certainly not be advisrable to sow or plant a large area of ground just because it is large. That is the chief weakness of farming today. A little field,., well en riched and well tilled, is far more profitable than a big field with poor soil and poor culture. If yoa have not land suitable for large yields of wheat and corn, it would be better not to try those crops. Try to make the farm better each year by keeping stock to eat up all the roughage and turn it into manure, by rotating crops and always having a goodly part of it in clover, peas, vetch or alfalfa. Be careful to sow good wheat wed. It has been well proven that larg, plump grains make more vigorous plants than small ones. Therefore, it is good policy to fan all wheat'intend ed for seed and to blow out t'rite' smatl, imperfect and shrunken grainw,. some of which are always to be found. If your own wheat is not good, 6ell enough to buy some that is better. Beware how you experiment with new kinds of wheat The old Fiilz that has been grown here so long, is the most reliable. Test new kinds- on a small scale only and do not" venture more than you can afford to lose. More farmers are trying vetch this year. August Weiss on Route No. ?., Cape Girardeau, will sow two acres. Some failures have been renorted, but that might have been due to poor seed. I hope we can soon be prepared io save our own vetch seed. There is said to be a cheap and simple machine on the market that will sirparate the rye from the vetch. Vetch is a heavy bearer of seed. No doubt', it could be flailed out rapidly. Our local stores are asking fifteen cents per pound this year. Last year it was ten and, twelve cents. The large' seed houses in the cities are offering it at six dol lars per bushel, which is ten cents a pound. Mr. Weiss will 6ovr winter turf oats with his vetch. Rye is most com monly employed to be sown with it. The rule is to sow fifteen pounds of vetch and thirty pound's of rye to the acre. Prepare the soil well, as for wheat, and drill or broadcast. Vetch will come up as easily as turnips. m Donot let the appltw and pears hang too long on the trees. They will lose In flavor and in keeping qualities. Pick the apples whew fully colored and grown. In the caae of yellow apples, examine the seeds; if brown, the fruit is ready for pickm?. Jonathan and Grimes Golden- should b picked soon er than long Keepers like the Win" sap and Black Twig. Pick the "nears when ihe stem snaps easily on lifting them up. Pnt them in a cool, d'tr place and' wrap them In paper if want ed for long- keeping. Kelffer pears, es pecially ff left to ripen on the trees, become grittv and ill flavored. F. L. Etherton of Murhpysboro, was in the Cape yesterday taotiag after some business intern a. L. G.
