Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - May 12, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia A valuable ladder. Money in strawberries. You can pick them away into october if planted right. That the strawberries Are Money makers is evidenced from this Story from c. E. Pal reels of Illinois published in the Farmer. He says a grow them from plants set in the Spring in rows four feet apart and two to three feet apart in j the Rew. They should be kept Culti-1 rated and Hoed All through the season j until fall when it they do Well you should have a Row fifteen to Twenty inches wide. A the ground should be got in As Good shape As possible before starting to Mark the rows. If the plot is in shape so you can Check them so much the better. It saves quite a Little hoeing. You can Cross cultivate totem about twice before they Start to throw out Many runners. They need hoeing four or five times during the summer and should be cultivated every week or so to keep the ground from crusting Over and to keep Down the weeds. Work until the plants quit growing in the fall. Then they Are Fine Strawberry Plant. Mulched with Straw about three or four loads to the acre any time after they have finished growing until Winter sets in. A we Plant berries in the Early fall eight to ten inches apart and put the rows three to five and a half feet apart because they do not throw out Many runners. We begin picking them about february and March and skip in pint boxes in place of quarts. In Florida they Are set out in double rows about ten inches apart with about three feet Between every two rows which they keep cultivated. The soil is nothing but Sand and they mulch to keep them out of the Sand. I was there in january this year and saw some of them still covered and they were shipping Ripe berries at the same time getting 50 cents per quart at the station. They ship in thirty two and sixty four quart refrigerators. If needed and when empty they Are returned to the shipper. A the profit in growing berries has been very Good the last three years Clearing from $1.25 to $2 to the Case and making from 150 to 300 cases to the acre. The past was an exceptional year. We had Ripe berries through August september and up to october that were As Fine As you Ever saw being mostly Haverland and Clyde. I know of one Man who had about Twenty five cases that sold a3 High As $6 a Case. No one seems to know Why they fruited this year the second time. All varieties did not. I had War Fields and Dunlap that i got no berries off the second crop. There were some others who had a few War Fields and Dunlap but the Clyde was As heavy on one end of the bed its the first crop which was extra Good this done to neglect table manners. No amount of knowledge wealth and Good clothes can compensate for the Lack of the simple table manners which you should have Learned in your childhood and should if you have children of your own teach the youngsters while they Are Small. Break Iff and butter a bit of bread at a time As you want it. Eat quietly keeping lips closed while chewing. Done to eat hurriedly. Done to begin to eat until the others Are served. Done to shovel food on knife Blade and scrape off with Fork. When food is tender enough use Fork in cutting rather than your knife. Eat desserts cakes and salads with Fork if possible. Done to drink Tea or Coffee from Saucer. In using the Napkin a Man of Good Breeding leaves his half folded and lays it across his Lap. The woman spreads hers Over her Lap. Shun everything which looks like a display of greediness. To Heap the plate to gobble the food to Drain your Glass or your cup to tip your soup plate that none of the precious drops May escape you. To swab the Gravy from the plate with a bit of bread and to demand a second help before others at the table have fairly begun of their first Supply Are All manifestations of a Lack of Breeding. Boys dote on melons. No one who has a piece of moderately Light soil Well exposed to the Sun can afford to be without cantaloupes. On a hot Day there is nothing that will replace a Liberal portion of ice chilled Cantaloupe especially with ice Cream in the hollow. Cantaloupes will thus help keep the boy on the farm. The child meant Well. The governor of Maine was at the school and was telling the pupils what the people of the different states were called. A now a he said a the people from Indiana Are called hoosiers the people from North Carolina tar heels the people from Michigan we know As michigander. Now what Little boy or girl can Tell me what the people of Maine Are called a a i know a said a Little girl. A maniacs. A popular monthly. Thess Hans Roost High. Possibly the most remarkable poultry establishment in this part of the country is located in Boston on the roof of one of the leading hotels. An employee has been keeping successfully a flock of about Twenty five hens. Ii heated in the very Center of the City the Birds thrive and Lay Well and a flock of chickens is being raised to keep up a Supply. The eggs Are used in the hotel and certainly ought to be crash enough to satisfy the most sex i a a a every fruit grower can make i Home and prove Ite Worth. Here is shown a Model of an Ldhl Light safety ladder for fruit growers that can be easily made at Home at Little or no Cost. Take 1% by 8 Inch White Pine Clear of flaws for the sides and 1 by 3 squares for Steps As they Are better to stand on than rounds. Nail blocks for them to rest on and to keep the sides from spreading put a Small Rod under every third step or wire will do. Double and twist it take a solid piece four feet Long for the Quot spout Bolt this with two one Liaf Inch bolts with wedges to make it solid. This makes a much lighter and handler ladder than the old straight one. You put the snout in the Fork of a limb and there is no slipping or turning or knocking the for not off. Hake several ladders of different lengths to suit your Trees. A tree that owns itself. Deed to land around it not valid but citizens have made it so. The Story of a tree which has a formal deed to the ground on which it stands is. Told by the outdoor Art league of son Jose. It goo. That in Athens ga., one William Jackson loved a tree As some men love friends or Noney. So he gave it its own splendid self to have and to hold with a deed of All the land within eight feet to be its own Safe from the greedy intrusion of Mau. This was an act of such High sentiment As belongs to the Days of Romance and the Knight of la Mancha. But it was done in our own land less than 100 years ago. Though the deed is not valid in Law the citizens still hold it Good and will not have it violated.

One Hundred and fifty basques the first to come to the United states in ten years have settled in Montana Oregon and Idaho to engage in the care of sheep and raising of grapes. A few basques Are already scattered Over this country and practically All of them Are As Good citizens As can be found. There Are Kalf a Hundred of them in Colorado and they Are the Best sheep herders who Ever came to this country. There is quite an old Colony of them in Nevada and they Are All Rich. The basques come from the northernmost province of Spain. The basques americanize quicker than some of the Peoples of Central and Northern Europe because they Are More eager to learn the English language. They Are supposed to be descended from the aboriginal population of the Region from whence they come and to have less admixture of other blood than any race in All Field and farm. Dairy doings. Done to feed out All the Clover to the cows. Have a Nice lot for the sheep. They will get As much Good out of it As any animal on the farm. The bulls dam is a. Big Factor in the Success of his progeny. Get a Bull from a Large producing cow and the More such cows in his Pedigree the better. A cow which is gentle and which has never been known to kick will soon learn to kick if she is beaten. She will treat you pretty much As you treat her. The Man who cannot milk without abusing cows has no business in the cow stable. A kick or blow will retard the secretion of milk and May injure the cow for time to come. Small undersized heifers should not be bred too Early. It is cheaper to have vigor and size at a greater expense of feed so As to get the Heifer into the Herd at Twenty four or Twenty seven months. No Farmer would think of petting his family on a ration of bread alone or even bread and potatoes for one Day yet we see Many a Man compelling his dumb helpless animals to eat a single roughage ration for months at a time. Governor Hoard once said on the color question a if grass had produced Green butter the Ole Margarine people would be colouring their product Green. It has been said where substitution is possible fair Competition is impossible. The Dairy interests of the country do not object to the Selling of Ole Margarine As Ole Margarine it is not jealous of its Competition but colouring the stuff yellow permits fraud does away with Competition. Dairymen Are not trying to annihilate Ole Margarine but the fraud it has a painters retort. Shortly after Franz Lenbach had painted the portrait of emperor Wilhelm i.
