All our best farmers have long since come to a conclusion as to the neces sity of deep fall plowing for sugar beets and the rule might be worked for all the other crops and we would 3till be ahead of the game. When beets are to go in on spud land on which the potato digger has done its awful w r ork there is no necessity for plowing, but on other land a depth of six or eight inches should be the mini mum and subsoiling from four to six inches below that will be found ad vantageous, and this country has never yet bought enough subsoil plows nor are they used as much as they were 20 years ago. Plowing around the Held should be avoided. Where land is arranged for the furrow method of irrigation and the ordinary plow used the direction should be only with the slope. Plowing at right angles to the slope will leave the dead and back furrows in the field in such position that even if smoothed over by culti vation they will prevent a uniform flow of water through the furrows. This plowing should be left .in the rough so that the soil may be well aerated and be able to catch and re tain snow or rain without drifting or run off. On land which is checked the direction of the plowing is not so es sential except as it affects permanent ditches. Fields that have been winter irrigated must be thoroughly culti vated after watering so as to retain the moisture applied, for the spring winds levy a great tax on evaporation •and we are looking for a good many hard blows this winter. The corru gator is a good thing, but alas, so few of us have corrugators and the iron foundries are not turning them out when it would be so simple to do so. FARM NOTES. Cull out the litters closely. A case of eggs holds 30 dozen. The right kind of a hay loader is as good, or even better, than a hired man. Renew all broken panes in the poul try house and see that the door works snugly. The calf, too, likes salt as well as older cattle, although only a small amount is necessary. Sowing barley with winter wheat as a means of protecting it for winter has proven unsuccessful. A couple of waxed ends kept handy will save many a precious moment when the harness breaks at the wrong time. If you want to drive the birds away keep a lot of cats around the place— but remember that the cats do not eat many insects. Do not wait until the bolts on the buggy begin to rattle off, but keep them tight all the time —it may save a bad accident. A hive of bees will supply all the honey the family needs and besides pollenize the fruit. Nothing pays bet ter in a small way. If you will allow stagnant water to stand around the place sprinkle the surface with kerosene once a week, it will kill the mosquitoes. If you must use the wagon harness for field work take off the backhands and substitute a broad band of plain leather for comfort and lightness. No use to put a mortgage on the place to buy an automobile. Two hun dred hens will furnish the money, though you will have to wait a year or two. Ducks do not like whole grain, but prefer soft food. When winter ap proaches they may be fed twice a day, at night adding animal meal or cooked meat. It is not necessary to drain the silo proper, but it should stand on dry ground and it is a wise precaution to run a drain tile around it two or three feet from the foundation. Mulching Celery. It is hoped that a large number of our readers will try growing celery by mulching this year. Commercial growers who use this system almost invariably apply 'fresh horse manure as the mulch, says the Baltimore American. It is placed between the rows immediately after transplanting and at the ratio of 40 or 50 tons per acre. This means a covering of three or four inches of manure, which will conserve moisture better than a fine soil mulch. Young Goslings. Goslings are easily affected by the cold and damp, so it is best to wait until the weather has become fairly warm before they are brought out. Many goslings die from sunstroke and they should alw r ays be provided with plenty of shade and water. If there is no stream near the breeding farms set tubs in the ground on a level with the surface and keep them filled with clean water. Keep Separator Clean. A Minnesota woman writes: - “I once had a good deal of trouble in cleaning the slime from the side of the bowl of my separator, but after I had learned to grease the inside of the bowl with butter I had very little trouble.” Corn Silage and Alfalfa. Corn silage and alfalfa are the two stand-bys in the economical ration for the dairy cow and the fortunate thing about it is that they are both of them drouth resisting crops. l!se of Concrete. Concrete is getting to be the most useful thing on the farm and every day some new way is found for using it.

WATER AND HARDPANj First Care Is to Get Water Deep ly Into the Soil. Rapid Evaporation From the Surface Promptly Arrests the Downward Seepage and the Capillarity Is Then Upward. The first care of the orchard irriga tor is to get water deeply Into the soil without flooding or puddling the sur face. It is not after all so much a mat ter of the number of inches used as the deep diffusion of the water through the soil to the full depth of the natural rooting of the tree. In this dry cli mate, if the first two or three feet the soil are quickly saturated witJ water, perhaps sufficient for six teA of healthy moisture, and then the irH gation is stopped, the rapid evapoß tion from the surface soil will ly arrest the downward seepage aH the capillarity will be upward, scu that none will go into the subsoil. The subsoil will then gradually dry out and harden and each repetition of this op eration will aggravate the subsoil con ditions until a hardpan Is formed into which the water will not seep readily. This results in the lower roots of the tree being encased in hard, dry soil to become inactive or even die, writes E. J. Wickson in the Denver Field and Farm. Another evil of this condition is that at each irrigation the air is driven out of the upper soil so that the roots in it are smothered, followed by such evils as gum disease, die-back, paling foliage and fruit dropping* for we see the tree unable to obtain sufficient water to properly dilute the food elab orated in the leaves, or to keep it in proper solution for distribution throughout the tree, and carry it to the roots for the work of root extension and mineral solution. All attempts to remedy this by the application of ma nures and mulch to supply dissolvents, or such delicately soluble salts as ni trates to stimulate the solution, are only temporarily beneficial and in the long run bring on the greater compli cations. Few irrigators kftv much about how water acts in the soil, as they only see the surface and warrant the criticism, of Wilcox in his Irrigation Farming that “unskilled has a penalty of twenty-five to fifty per cent, attached to it in the application of water and unfortunately this class is too prevalent in the irrigating fields.” One of the mistakes often observable on heavy soils is the running of five or six furrows between each row of trees, whereas three or four are sufficient. The furrows should be no nearer than sufficient to allow the water of each to sink in independently, fanning out to meet below. If streams are so close that they mingle in their downward course a foot «or two below the sur face they cause a puddling of the soil and consequent driving up of air, which in a short time\rrests the downward action of the water, making it seep more and more slowly, until a practi cal standstill occurs. The result is generally hardpan. As irrigation is usually practical but one way through the orchard a deep subsoil track or tunnel should be run half way between the trees transversely the streams. Tnls can be done with a small tool on a sub-soil plow shank big enough to make a track about the size of a gopher run at a depth of fif teen to twenty inches. The benefits accomplished by this are the dissem ination of water all around the trees, the more rapid spreading of the water without driving out the air, as in the deep furrow, and the carrying of the air deep down into the soil, thus' as sisting irrigation. This may be ob jected to as a root pruning operation which it certainly is, and on this ac count it is not practical In all sea sons. This is to be regretted because it is a great advantage to irrigation. Care of Fowls. Fowls to do their best must be well cared for and kindly treated, the same as other domestic animals. The care ful poultryman should no more think of frightening his fowls than the suc cessful dairyman would of exercising his milch cows with the milking stool. Egg production is a function of the hen that is as much under the control of the nervous system as in milk se cretion in the cow or speed in the horse. To get the best results in either case the controlling mechanism must be kept in a perfect state of equilibrium. Separate the Cockerels. The young cockerels should be sep arated frpm the pullets just as soon .as they are old enough to be distin guished. It would be better If they could be kept in an enclosure not far from the pullets, particularly at the beginning of each laying season, says a writer in an exchange. We are going to repeat here what we have so many times said, that the best use for the cockerels is to make capons of them. Every cockerel that is not kept for breeding purposes ought to be caponized. Two Kinds of Pinkeye. There are two kinds of pinkeye af fecting cattle; one is due merely to dust, chaff, hay seed, cinders or other materials getting into the eye while the other kind is due to a germ and is contagious. Concrete Floor Best. A concrete floor makes the best floor for the pountry house, but it is necessary to keep a heavy coating of litter over it. It is easily cleaned and forms a protection against rats.
