Fixed Wages Pius a Share in
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture)
"1 took the same interest in my work
as-a tenant as I take in my own farm.
1 began work without a dollar and
with very little knowledge of farming,
but -while -I .was on the farm I learned
a -good deal. I had ample opportunity
to study. the. principles controlling crop
growth, soil improvement, stock man
agement, etc. The ' inspiration 1 re
ceived was valuable indeed, and dur
ing my .period .of -service I earned
enough money ; to buy the small farm
on which I now live."
This extract from , a -statement made
by a former farm tenant employee,
now a farm owner, 'reviews a relation
ship between owner and tenant that i
great many persons on both sides of
the farm-landlord -situation may well
envy. There .is possibly no -subject
connected with . the business of farm
ing which leads to,-as many misunder
standings, - dissatisfactions and mutual
losses as the management- of. a- farm by
a nonowner. -Somebody has said that
nothing short of .application of the
golden, rule would ever bring about sat
isfactory arrangements between the
owner and occupant of . a farm, and
yet, in this case, there was nothing
eleemosynary In the arrangement.
Tested by Fifteen Years' Trial.
The man who 'made the - statement
quoted .-above was 'for :a number of
years the manager-of one of. two -ordinary-sized
hog farms-owned by a man
in Illinois, and the plan under which
he was engaged as farm manager has
been followed by the owner with al
most ' unfailing success for more than
fifteen -years. .Briefly, the -plan was
nothing more or ; less than a straight
annual salary which included : tenant
house and the usual garden, and poul
try perquisites, and. as a bonus, a
share-of the net profits.
.The profit-sharing! plan has-served to
stimulate the efforts of the employee
and has greatly lessened the supervi
sion .necessary -on :th part .of the
owner. By the use of the telephone
and occasional visits he is able-to keep
In .touch 'with -the farm problems and
to co-operate effectively with the man
ager. -Since the owner was farming
himself it was important that the man
agement of his other two farms take
as little of his time as possible. Thus
far the managers have been selected
from the men employed on the home
farm, which, serves .as a .training
'How "Net Income Is 'Determined.
The managers are given a regular
monthly wage and . a bonus consisting
of one-third of the net farm income.
In determining the .net income 5 per

Fruit Is Larger, ttearter and Su

Grown in Home Garden Staking and
Pruning .Require Little Trouble

(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture)
A thrifty tomato plant left .to itself
will spread over a space from 4 to -6
feet in diameter and will produce a
peck or more of tomatoes. If staked
and pruned it will yield about the
same quantity of fruit, the tomatoes
will be larger, cleaner, better flavored.
and superior in every respect, and
enough space can te conserved to ac
commodate five other plants cared for
in a similar manner, say garden spe
cialists of the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture. The staked and
pruned plants are easily sprayed, and
will continue to produce fruit later in
the fall than plants which are allowed
to spread naturally. As a rule, also.
the pruned tomatoes will mature ear
lier. On the scale on which tomatoes
are grown in the home garden, stak
ing and pruning require little trouble,
and will fully repay the effort.
When the plants begin making a
vigorous growth, shoots will appear in
the little pockets where euch leaf joins
the .stem. Later the blossoms appear
on the opposite side of the stem. In
pruning the plant, remove all these
side shoots and those around the base
of the plant, being careful not to dis
turb the blossom clusters. The shoots,
sometimes called suckers, should be
pinched off shortly after they appear.
The ma:n stem can be carried to the
full height of the stake, then allowed
to h&ng over. By this time six or sev
en blossom clusters, on which the
fruit is developing, should be set on
the stem.
Scours and Thumps.
Scours and thumps in the young
pigs must be guarded against in the
first few weeks. Scours generally
come from suddenly overfeeding the
sow or from changing her ration abruptly.

turn for capital, after wnich all ex
penses are deducted, -such as for
thrashing, the manager's wage, extra
labor, machinery repairs, 'depreciation,
and the cost of fertilizers and seeds.
Each of the two managed farms has
a 'house for the manager, who also can
use the work horses to -drive for per
sonal use, has a garden, -and a cow or
two for supplying the family with milk
and butter. Fifty 'Chickens are fur
nished, and the family is permitted to
raise as many as . possible to supply the
needs of the farm table, 'but on Decem
ber .1 all the chickens above the origi
nal number must be sold, .and the land
lord gets one-half 'the receipts. The
purpose .of this limit on chickens is
to enable the manager :to have his own
poultry supply without taking unduti
advantage of his opportunity.
In order to calculate .the amount of
money which the manager Is to re
ceive on this plan it lis .necessary to -d
a certain amount of bookkeeping. This
is left -to the owner, wJio keeps a set
of fann accounts, and on March 1 a
complete Inventory Is taken and a
yearly summary of the farm business
is completed. In cases .of disease, poor
crops, or a partial failure which is tin
avoidable, thus cutting down the In
come of the manager, .the owner makes
some allowance -and gives the mana
ger, ;ln addition 'to the wages he has
received, what he thinks is due hlra
for the work he has 'done, and the re-
sponsibility he has-assumed.
In the period before war inflation
the managers made ;from $41 to $49
per month the yearrround, in addition
to having their rent, garden, milk, but
ter and eggs. The manager of the
smaller farm, comprising '96 acres, re
ceived $35 a month straight wages for
four years up to 1918, and his bonus
averaged $168 :a year. The manager
of the other farm, comprising 160
acres, formerly received $30 per month
and was increased to $35.
.Manager '.Well Paid.
When the fact is -taken into consid
eration that the managers employed
under this system rare provided with
houses in which to live and are given
the privilege of raising 'their home sup
plies -of -vegetables, milk, poultry and
eggs, it will be seen that -their 'neces
sary expenses are inconsiderable, and
it must be conceded that they are well
paid for their services, in view of the
fact that they have 'no Investment risk,
The length of time which the men re
main on the farms -shows that this
method of employment must have been
satisfactory both tto employee :and
landlord in these .eases. It should be
pointed out, however, that the tenunt

landlord before he would be justified
in working under this system.
Gardener Should Nat Be Misled :by

No gardener Should be misled by
highly colored :and much-advertised
novelties, or unfamiliar varieties of
vegetables. Some .of them may be
good, but it iis better :to stick to the
standard, well-known and approved
varieties. Many varieties .of a certain
vegetable may be listed pin the cata

to your particular soil, climate or
needs. If in doubt about what to

When the novelty of married life is gone she instinctively begins to want

One hears of the devotion of the American husband, slaving from
early riiorning until late at njght, denying himself all social pleasures
and directing all his energies to "making his pile." It is usually between
the ages of thirty and forty-five that his "pile" is made.
He loves her no less, but, like the Russian peasant and his ikon, he
forgets his adoration in his business and consequently the wife suffers.
Until the American husband .realizes this essential and overwhelming
desire of his wife and gives her love and companionship at the same time
she will continue to suffer.
