Bethel's Cash Meat Market Phone 239 FARMINGTON, MO. Quick Delivery WAR THRIFT GARDENS In view of the serious food situa tion that now confronts the country, it is important that the home vegeta ble garden be encouraged more than ever this year as one means especial ly for providing food locally. Trans portation facilities that formerly were devoted to the hauling of perishable products are now -engaged in the movement of troops and war mater ials. The local production of large quantities of fresh garden vegetables will assist in the solution of the trans portation problem. In every city, town or village there is a large amount of vacant, unused land that could well be utilized for gardening purposes and the city home vegetable garden should be especially encourag ed this year. It is the patriotic duty of every family to produce as much as possible of their own food supply this year. In the promotion of the movement for more gardens, and better gardens, this year special emphasis should be placed upon the essential food crops, including all kinds of beans, potatoes, carrots, beets, parsnips, tomatoes, sweet corn and peas. Beans and peas are of the utmost importance, as their use materially reduces the consump tion of bread and meat. Beetd, es pecially the sugar beets, contain sugar in addition to their succulent quali ties. While the food value of toma toes is not mo great as that of beans and peas, an abundant supply should be grown oh account of their desirable qualities as a part of the diet and al so on account of their suitability for canning purposes. Sweet corn and garden peas are valuable from a food standpoint and should be grown wherever space permits. Corn, pens, and potatoes require cunsiderabo space and are suitable to the farm garden and the large backyard garden but should not 'be planted in the very small garden. The root crop, such as carrots, parsnips, salsify and turnips require very little space and are es pecially desirable for winter use when green foods are scarce. We aro all familiar wfth the fuel situation last winter, and who knows but that we may have a similar sit uation as regards our food supply next winter. A cellar filled with pota toes and canned goods and penty of dried products on our sholves will give q feeling of security that would be impossible if the larder were emp ty. 4 DRAINAGE DEMONSTRATION Mr. C. B. Denman of Farmington is doing some excellent work in tile draining a seepy hillside on his farm. ihere seems to be layers of hard-Dan extending near the surface in places along this hillside which stops the wa ter and makes a large strip of very wet seepy, land. He is running one main tile down the center of the wet place with laterals everv 100 or 150 feet. These-ditches are 2 1-2 or 3 feet deep and are still open as the tile has not been laid yet. A steady stream of water is flowing in every ditch. Mr. Denman is having the ditches dug by hand because the ground is too soft to take a team on it without cutting it up badly. He says with ev erything done bv hand that he can buy and lay the tile for about Beven cents a foot. Digging the ditches by hand is costing five cents a foot, while with a team and a ditch digger it would cost about one cent a foot. - Ihe mam tile emntics out into a lane near his barn. Mr. Denman plans to build a concrete pool .here and use it as a waterinir nlace for his stock during the winter months when most all surface water is frozen over. - - - .

The conditions cading up to these changes may be understood from the following let ters: . , Columbia, Mo., March 28, 1918. Mr. J. W. Buck. President. St. Fran cois County Farm Bureau, Farm ington, Mo. Dear Sir: I have been thinking of taking up a certain matter with you for some time, but I have hesitated to do so until it has become absolutely neces sary. Mr. A. I. Foard, your County Agent, has shown great ability in helping us in our State organization work and if he could give most of hiss time to it ho would be especially val uable to us at this time in carrying forward the War program. Under any other conditions, I would not ask of you what I am going to in this let ter, because I know that St Francois county deserves the best that we can possibly give her. However, now it seems to me that all of us should look at this as a matter that we must pur sue for the greatest good of the State and Nation, and from that point of view I am going to ask your Farm Bureau if you will not approve trans ferring Mr. Foard to work as Assist ant County Agent Leader and use Mr. Glenn S. Hensley as your County Agent. Wo are putting on a great number of new fnen and aro unable to reach them with the proper kind of help and supervision. Mr. Foard would be especially helpful in this kind of work. 1 Please understand that I want the full approval and the good- will of the St. Francois County Farm Bureau in asking for this change.
