Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - June 30, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Fis grow own table dainties. Every farm no matter what its size should have a Kitchen Garden. Perhaps the most characteristic feature of our Northern and Eastern farms is the Home vegetable Garden says w. R. Beattie assistant Horticulturist Bureau of Plant Industry. Even where no Orchard has been planted and where the ornamental surroundings of the Home have been neglected a fairly Well kept Garden in which Are grown a number of the Staple kinds of vegetables is generally to be found. In Many cases the principal interest in the Garden is manifested by the women of the household and much of the necessary care is Given by them. A Small portion of the Garden enclosure is generally devoted to the cultivation of Flowers and a number of medicinal plants Are invariably present. Throughout the newer parts of the country one finds that the conditions governing the maintenance and use of the vegetable Garden Are somewhat different and while a number of vegetable crops May be grown somewhere on the farm there is wanting that distinction so characteristic of the typical new England Kitchen Garden. It would be impossible of make an accurate estimate of the value of crops grown in the Kitchen gardens of the United states but from careful observation the statement can safely be made that a Well kept Garden will yield a return ten to fifteen times greater than would the same area and location if devoted to general farm crops. A half acre devoted to the various kinds of Garden crops will easily Supply a family with $100 Worth of vegetables during the year while the average return for farm crops is considerably less than one tenth of this amount. A Bountiful Supply of vegetables close at hand where they May be secured at a few moments notice is of even More importance than the Pere Money value. Fresh vegetables from the Home Garden Are not subjected to exposure on the markets or in transportation and Are not liable to become infected in any Way. Many of the products of the Garden lose their characteristic flavor when not used within a few hours after gathering. By Means of the Home Garden the production of the vegetable Supply for the family is directly under control and in Many eases is the Only Way whereby clean fresh produce May be secured. The Home vegetable Garden is worthy of increased attention and a greater number and variety of crops should be included in the Garden. The question of proximity to the House or other buildings is of great importance when locating a Garden. In old homesteads the Garden was Gen a a rally located directly adjacent to the House requiring but a few Steps from the Kitchen to reach the extreme parts of the Garden. Tho work of earing for a Garden is usually done at spare times and for this reason alone the location should be near the dwelling. In Case the site chosen for the Garden should become unsuitable for any cause it is not a difficult matter to change the location. Many persons prefer to plan the Garden in a different location every five or is years. A Chick Fountain. Can be made by anybody and the Little peelers enjoy it immensely. Here s an ingenious Little Fountain for keeping a constant Supply of water for Youthful chickens. It la simple 1 in the extreme to make and any boy who can use a saw and drive a Nail i can make one in an hour. Just take 1 two pieces of Board one six inches Square and the other c by 12 and Nail them so As to form a right Angle. Get an old milk bottle and Nai two thin 1 a a. A Guinea pigs As Lawn , in America the Humble Guinea pig is used largely to Advance the cause of science by succumbing to different germs by refusing to weaken after generations of intense inbreeding and by generally a tending to prove whatever the scientists want to prove. But Over in England the Guinea pig is be ing used As a Lawn Mower with great effect. He is More than a Mere machine at that for we Are assured that he not Only clips the Lawn evenly but with rare discrimination removes All the weeds therefrom Guinea pigs multiply very rapidly and almost any one can get enough to. Keep his Lawn mowed if he starts Early in the. Spring. We thought the american Farmer who tied his Lawn Mower to an automobile and suited around Over his Lawn had solved the problem but the English mowing system has certain Points of superiority which increase our respect for British Stockman Aad Farmer. A certain cure. A do you know anything that will kill potato bugs a asked the. Young Man with the yellow fingers. A yes a said the old lady with the Gingham apron crus tily a get Mem to. Smoke manure Means dollars. Manure is Worth dollars. Why not save those dollars manure adds humus As Well As Plant food to the soil and one is As valuable As the other. The soil May contain All the elements of Plant food but if it has no humus these elements Are not available and plants do not thrive. Humus aids in retaining moisture for the future use of the Plant. Now is the time to save Money by saving manure and manure is Best saved by being spread upon Tho Field where it will do the most Good. Immediate value in crops As Well As ultimate value in the far a results from the use of the manure spreader. 1.1 in he. The strength it of Infante. The myth of the infant Hercules who strangled two serpents in his Cradle May not be a myth at All but a fact modern science has proved that it la a possible feat. The Newborn babe is relatively much stronger than % full grown Man according to the result of medical tests. The Muscles it the forearm Are surprisingly Strong. A few hours after birth a baby suspended by its anger to a stick or to the Finger of a person can hold itself in the air far Tan seconds and in the Rase of particularly Strong infants for As Long As half a minute. At four it jays old the child a strength has increased and the time is two and a half minutes for 98 per cent of babies. The maximum is attained at a fortnight. Few infants can hang on for More than one and a half minutes though one exceptionally Young Hercules remained suspended for two in Lutes add thirty eight seconds by his right hand. After that he Hung of with his left for fifteen seconds Fountain for chickens. Strips of tin so that the bottle will slip easily in a and out and remain supported head Down. Then Nail the lid of a tin can under the Mouth of the bottle and enough water will escape to keep the Little receptacle always full and be Handy for the Chicks to get at whenever they want to liquidate their Little Bills. It goes without saying that the contraption should be kept in a Cool Shady spot want real parcels Post. Entirely too much Energy wasted on roads from town to country. As to some products 6f the farm there is a difference of 40 to 50 per cent Between the Price that the grower receive Sand the Price that the consumer pays. There Are even cases in which this Price difference amounts to 300 per cent. Part of the loss is due to a bad system of retail distribution As when a dozen City milk wagons travel Over the same route each delivering one bottle Here and another bottle there when one Wagon might As Well make All the deliveries along the route. This same waste appears even More markedly Between the farm and the town How Many fully loaded wagons do you pass in driving to town from a dozen farms a dozen packages of butter poultry or vegetables May go to town the same morning each in a different vehicle. Every Day a dozen parcels of merchandise Are hauled out of town along the same Road in a dozen different conveyances and the time and labor of eleven men and eleven horses go for nothing. The Rural free delivery mall Wagon now Oomes to your House with a Load that you could put in one or two Bushel baskets and it goes Back to town with an even smaller Load. Under present conditions it looks As if the Post office department was not a Lvii the Farmer his Money a gentleman. Eastern Shore of Virginia produce Exchange. Incorporated january 26, 1900, Den t.

A mule is no More prone to kick than a horse unless he is taught to do so by bad treatment. Are you one of the unthinking who starts a horse with a blow instead of using your voice do you want a Balky horse you can easily have one by giving him too heavy loads to draw. If the horse must in the barn during hot weather keep All the doors and windows wide open. Oats is the most perfect All round feed for horses at any time of the year. Barley is a close second. It is a Good sign to see a pair of Scales in the stable but you have to use them to get any Good from them. Carrots must be fed sparingly to working horses. Cut them in slices. They Are a laxative and affect the kidneys also lop off the ration of All kinds when the horses Are doing Little or nothing. They Are too. Much like a Man to stand heavy feed while lying still. Stuffing the Colt with Hay or Straw or any coarse feed will spoil its looks. Keep this ration Down by the use of some Grain and less coarse feed. Watch the hired Man with your horses. If they cringe Dodge or show signs of fear while with him take my advice and a a fire him. A Good horse is. Spoiled when he is a victim of fear. Done to make your horse wait till he is cooled off before you give him a drink. Take a couple of quarts in a pail and give that. Then wait a while and give As much More.
