For an or chard of fifteen or twenty to two or three hundred trees, a good barrel outfit should be provided, says V. R. Gardner of the University of Missouri College of Agriculture. This consists of a good strong spray pump mounted in a heavy barrel and provided with a cut off or valve to control the flow of the spray ma terials, a lead of good strong hose twelve or fifteen feet long, an ex tension rod eight or ten feet long, and a suitable nozzle. A good bar rel outfit of this sort together with all of the accessories may be obtain ed for $25 or $30. Nearly all of the manufacturers of spraying equip ment are prepared to furnish outfits of this type. With good care, such an outfit will last for many years and with it good efficient work may be done. No one with a home or chard of even twelve or fifteen good size trees should be without an out fit of this kind. The fruit obtaiaed from such a small orchard during a single average season would more than pay the cost of the outfit. Fortunately it is necessary for the fruit growers to provide them selves with only two or three kinds of spraying materials. In most cases a supply of arsenate of lead and of lime sulphur is sufficient to control satisfactorily the common insects and diseases of the orchard As the spraying season is close at band, all those who contemplate spraying should provide themselves immediately with suitable spraying Pershing Route With the incorporation under the laws of Missouri as the Pershing Transport Route, the Pikes Peak Ocean to Ocean Highway Associa tion has taken the first step in its campaign for national recognition as a military route.- Contrary to plans of other highway bodies to adopt the name, the Pikes Peak organization has the cabled consent of General J. J. 'Pershing, from France, which was received shortly after the annual meeting, held at St. Joseph, decided to adopt this name.- General Pershing cabled that he would consent to have the name used, in order that the high way could be a permaneut memori al, from coast, cf the men who laid down their lives in France. Now that another highway body has attempted to use the name, the Pikes Peak Ocean to Ocean High way will make every effort to legal ly protect its new name. The Pikes Peak route is the only nationaly highway that passes thru the old home of General Pershing at Laclede, Mo., and it is proposed to stage a big national celbration there this summer, when the troops are home, io honor of the famous general who led the Amercan forces. Delegates from all along the Pikes Peak route-the Pershing Transport Route will be asked to attend. The first ascent of Pikes Peak by battle tanks is to be made in April during the Victory Loan drive. Government officials have arranged the peak climb as a new test for these mons ters that made such a record in France. The tanks will make part of the journey from Kansas City to Colorado Springs via the Pershing Transport Route. At the annual meeting held in St Joseph, it was decided to continue the national headquarters at Colo rado Springs and T. W. Ross of that city was elected secretary to succeed the late A. W. Henderson, one of the founders 'of the Pikes Peak Ocean to Ocean highway. . - Unusual activity among the vari ous divisions was reported and in almost every community there is much agitation for hard surfaced highway, with big bond issues pass ed in several states for work on this route. , Woodson & Drescher, real estate agents, will handle that farm or other property for you in a satis factory manner. - equipment and spraying materials. Timeliness is of great importance for the success of all orchard spray ing work. The importance of act ing quickly if the work is done this cannot be over emphasized. Most farm papers carry the ad vertisement of firms dealing in both spray machinery andspray materi als. Those interested in the subject of spraying should consult these ad vertisements, or this information will be given by the Department of Horticulture, University of Missouri upon request The Department is also prepared to furnish detailed in formation as to the time of applica tion, amounts to use and other points of interest. No Great Enthusiasm The suggestion that President Wilson be nominated for a third term is not evoking) great enthusi asm, or evidence of general support by his admirers throughout the country. Whenever the third term has been advanced in the past it has been rejected, as it is more than likely to be in the future There is always the thought that if three terms r.re permitted, why not four? And if four, why not a life term? The American people simply won't support a third term, however much they may admire and trust the can didate, and we fear that if an at tempt is made in this direction it will result as before, in the defeat of the party. There are too many good and competent men in this couutry to pin our faitb and hopes to one man. Glasgow Missourian The best job printing. Save the Spirit When the war was on, and ap peal after appeal swept the country our people responded nobly to every call for aid. Regardless of previous charity every good move ment must be aided, and the inau guration of any war movement meant its speedy success. The war is practically over. Our boys are drifting home again. Out tasks of peace are being taken up. War paint is removed from tb ships and guns, uniforms are re placed by civilian attire and we fear the spirit of generosity will be driven off by a renewed selfishness. Let us strive to keep up the public spirited campaigns, let us seek fine aims for our money and get togeth er to raise the necessary funds. The war has shown how a com munity can pull together. Thous ands of dollars poured out of our country for bonds, Red Cross and welfare work. Wherein were we poorer? The city or county which keeps alive this good feeling, this open generosity, is certain to progress. Nothing is impossible in Missouri. Now comes J T. McCune, south of New London, and says be and bis family have been eating cabbage all winter that grew in his garden, according to the Ralls County Rec ord. They were not of the "buried" kind, either. They just grew there in the garden the past winter and when they wanted a head they would go out and cut from the stalk just line they are in the habit of doing in the summer time. ONE MAM CAN E with the MOKE LAND iSBjfev wsra. v. hfmmx m ' H "HarrowinA 1 With the Moline-Universal the original two-wheel tractor One Man can farm more land than was ever before possible, because One Man has power at his com mand equal to six horses, capable of doing the work of nine horses, duo to its greater speed and endurance. One Man operates the Molinc-Uni-versal from the seat of the imple ment to which it is attached, where he must sit in order to do good work. One Man cau start in the spring and go from one operation to an other plowing, harrowing, planting, cultivating, sowing, harvesting grain or corn, spreading manure, filling the silo, cutting wood, etc, doing all farm work from one year's end to another, independently of horses or hired help. All these one-man operations are possible with the Moline-Universal because it is mounted on two wheels. It attaches direct to the implement, making one compact unit the trac tor the front wheels and the imple ment the rear wheels. One man con trols the entire outfit from the seat of the implement There has been good reason in the past for putting a seat on implements, for it is from this point that the work must be observed and that adjustments must be made. Being close coupled to the imple ment, the Moline-Universal Tractor backs as readily as it goes forward, and turns in a 16-foot circle. It steers so easily that a boy or wo:nati can handle it as well as a man. With the Moline-Universal one man can take care of all the require ments on the average size farm. Plowing with two-bottoms, the Moline-Universal Tractor does as much work in one day as the ordi nary three-plow tractor, due to the higher speed at which it operates, 3J4 miles an hour. It has the power to run at this high speed because all of its weight is traction weight all of it is converted to pulL The light weight of the Moline Universal Tractor, 3380 pounds, and its high clearance greater than that of tie average cultivator make it perfectly adapted for cultivating. It tsn't the kind of tractor that does your plowing and seed bed prepara tion and then rests while your horses do the planting, cultivating and har vesting. Mechanically, the Moline-Universal is the most modern tractor built, containing more refinements and im provements than any other tractor on the market. onroe Overland Co. WOODSON & PIKE, Managers.
