Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - July 7, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Himalaya Best Blackberry grows anywhere is Coreless and can is easily shipped a thousand Miles. The giant Himalaya Berry a far Eastern Branch of the Blackberry Genus is coming into its own and achieving a great popularity after a setback of a dozen years because of its slow propagation. A it has a Strong Root system and differs from the Ordinary Blackberry in that it does not readily sucker the new Cane growth starting at or near the Root Crown generally from the main stalk or came. These canes if permitted will often amp reach a length of fifty feet in a season. Fruit laterals from three to five feet Long Are sent out from these canes and Are gracefully pendent on the outside specimen Coreless Blackberry. Of properly trained vines. Rather late in the Spring after the frosts Are Over these laterals become a mass of delicate Pink Bloom which later gives Way to an immense crop of very Sweet Al-3 most Coreless blackberries. The fruit ripens from july to november and through hanging in clusters of the outside of the Vine it is amply shaded from sunburn by leaves of a Beautiful Olive Shade rather Silvery underneath. From three to five years Are required for the Himalaya to reach perfection so that growers should not be Hasty in passing judgment. The Vine should be Yoonsi dared a Niit tree and taken care of accordingly. It Bas always made goed if gives half a Chance. The Himalaya i adaptable to almost every variety of soil and climate the former having More influence Over prolific Acy than the latter. The fact that it is succeeding in Florida Alabama new Mexico California new Jersey new York Michigan Missouri Montana and Many other states Speaks Well for its future. It is a perennial to a marked degree vines having passed through a Winter 21 degrees below Zero unprotected. The fruit compares favourably in size with the Best of commonly known blackberries and As a shipper far outclasses any of them. Fresh berries have been shipped Over a thousand Miles the past season and brought Good prices. J farm8cience=wealth. Or. Hopkins Illinois soil expert has hammered Home the theory that you cannot keep taking everything out of the soil without putting something Back. His dictum has been justified by recent experiments conducted by the University of Illinois which show that with the use of phosphorus crops have been doubled. On the same farm the wheat yield where phosphorus was not used was Twenty four bushels an acre with the phosphorus the yield jumped to an average of fifty eight and a half bushels. Farming is being rapidly recognized to be As much of a science As the most intricate manufacturing business. The scientific Farmer is the one who will make a Fortune where his ancestors made a Bare living. Phosphorus for wheat. Experiments in soil treatment have been made on the University of Illinois Experiment plots on the s. Noble King farm in Mclean county and by the use of phosphorous fertilizer the wheat yield was More than doubled. The average yield on All plots which were not treated with phosphorus yrs Twenty four bushels nacre. The by wage yield on the fertilized plots was fifty eight and one half bushels an acre. This is the Climax of the results that have been obtained on the Experiment plot year after year and More than bears out the propaganda of or. 0. G. Hopkins the University Soh expert who holds that crops May be doubled wry intelligent treatment. Sunflowers useful. Sunflowers Are attractive and a place is always More Homelike when they Are planted in abundance near it sunflowers give dignity and Charm to the farmstead and their presence denote taste and culture of the homemaker.

Dean Raymond shows that Tilsa must to used to obtain results. The River Bottoms of Iowa Are usually Broad with Little slope toward the River and almost universally with Banks slightly higher than the land farther Back these Banks forming natural levees to keep the River of the Bottom lands except at very High water but also serving to hold water on the Bottom lands for Long periods in the Spring and after Hood stages of the River. As a result of this formation Many thousands of acres of the richest most valuable land Are wholly unproductive says Dean William g. Raymond of the engineering state University of Iowa City. They Are covered by shallow Ponds that dry out Only late in the season or serve Only for wild Hay or inferior pastures. Attempts to Drain these lands by open ditches have sometimes been successful but often have not owing to the very slight fall that can be had the rapid choking of ditches by vegetation and the blocking of the Mouth by River Silt and Sand. Moreover this method wastes considerable quantities of this same most valuable land that it is sought to reclaim. An open ditch must have easy Side slopes to prevent caving in of the sides and the dirt taken from the ditch is deposited alongside so that a properly constructed ditch Only one foot wide on the Bottom and four feet deep is Likely to Wasto a strip of land Twenty five to thirty feet wide for its entire length. A mile of such ditch would consume Over three acres of tillable ground. If the annual profit to be earned on such land is Only $7.50 per acre this would represent at 5 per cent a capital account of $150 that could be added to the Cost of an open ditch to build a tile Drain and if the annual Cost of cleaning the open ditch be capitalized in a similar manner a sum possibly even larger could be added to the Cost of an open ditch to build a tile Drain. An open ditch that will even approximate the drainage effect of a twelve Inch tile cannot be properly built for less than from $700 to $1,000 a mile depending on the soil the labor Market and the class of labor available while the Cost of a twelve Inch tile Well Laid May be As Little As about $1,-100 a mile As is shown by the following Cost of 3,300 feet of such tile Drain Laid for or. R. Mosnat of Belle Plaine. The Cost was $895.76. As there were 270 acres directly benefited by this Drain the Cost was about $3.32 per acre. Half of this land had never been under cultivation and the other half Only in dry years. About seventy acres were in two Ponds and various attempts had been made to Drain these by open ditches but without Success. The result has been Gratifying and the owner was offered a 40 per cent increase on the Cost of the land and tile As soon As it was demonstrated that the Ponds could be drained. This particular line of tiie averaged four to four and a half feet deep and opened into the Iowa River by a tide Gate or Flap valve that lets the water into the River at Ordinary stages and keeps the River out of the tile at High water.
