Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - November 10, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Farm Garden � dry farming Wisdom. The Why and the How of it explained clearly by an expert. Writing on some dry farming problems a. M. Ten Eyck superintendent of the Western Kansas Experiment station. Fort Hays kan., says experts have lost Ninny a convert to dry farming by clouding the Issue. They put in just a Little too much Sci ence and not quite enough common sense. What a Farmer wants is Plain English in Short sentences and not Many to a paragraph. You can t make it too Plain for the Man who struggles with dry hot winds. So far As cultivation is concerned there Are exactly three principal Steps in this dry farming business and dry farming it should be understood is conserving the moisture nothing More. There they Are j first.?the soil must be loosened to n considerable depth in order to pre pare a Reservoir to receive the rain and Ettli Ruiess Barley grown by proper methods of dry farming. 1 photograph by the Montana Farmers Institute carry the water downward into the soil. This May be accomplished by deep blowing by listing or by risking in slowed lands. Second.?the water which is carried Down into the subsoil must be brought Hack again into the surface soil where the seed is germinating and the Young roots Are growing and to accomplish this a Good connection must be made Between the Furrow slice and the sub soil and this is the purpose in the use of the subsurface Packer immediately after blowing. Third.?finally in order that the water which is drawn up again May not reach the air and be wasted by evaporation the upper two or three inches of the soil must be kept Mellow in the form of a soil mulch and this is accomplished in the growing of crops by frequent cultivation which is not so practicable with \u25a0wheat and other Small grains As with Icorn and other inter tilled crops. Make Roadside Trees pay. Germans far ahead of us in utilization of waste space. The auction sales of native fruit grown on the Trees bordering the coun try roads id the township of Linden adjoining the City of Hanover yielded last autumn 20,612 Marks $4,906. Along certain stretches of these roads the yield has amounted to 1,500 Marks $357 per Kilometre or at the rate of $595 per mile. The province of Han Over has some 7,000 Miles of country highways bordered with fruit Trees the profit of which is appropriated toward the Upkeep of the roads. These roads which Are commonplace to the native resident Are the Delight of the american tourist who often to riders Why roadsides in the United states Are not thus planted to fruity this application of the Beautiful practical and economic possibilities embraced in the control of such Public property As roads is a Fine illustration of the Community Thrift of the Ger Man. During the three or four weeks period of ripening Sharp eyed old watchmen on bicycles patrol the roads being particularly Active on sundays when the people Are out in Large num Bers. It is forbidden to pick up fruit from the ground and to Knock it from the Trees is subject to a Fine of 100 Marks $23.80 or More for each and regulations for the general Good however excite such respect on the part of the German that cases of theft of fruit from the Highway fruit Trees rarely occur.?from Consul Rob Ert j. Thompson Hanover Germany 6 Honey bread. In Europe where the food value of Honey seems to be much better under stood than in the United states enor Mous quantities Are used. Of late years we seem to be waking to a realization of the value of Honey As a wholesome and delicious article of food and Aloas to its preservative qualities. Cakes and Sweet breads made with sugar soon become dry and crumbly and to get the Good of them must be eaten he Jet Fth a but where they Are Madcap m Noney they seem to retain Thelno \u25a0 Only kind that pays. \ t ? there Are very few Fields that ? get the cultivation they should. An aerated pulverized Mellow ? soil is the Only paying kind to put seed into. A pint of sifted it soil in a Flowerpot will grow a ? a bigger Plant than will a quart a of coarse soil. We can t sift ? Grain Fields but we can come close to it. With the i get tools ? a eur when it is not too wet or dry. ? \u2666 Chicks lunch counter. Easily built Hopper a saved one third of food for one poultry Man. J the builder of this sell regulating Hopper for feeding poultry has found by Many years experience that it pays to let chickens have a constant Supply of wheat and other Grain and he claims that it is Economy in the Long run to use a Hopper that supplies feed at All times but prevents waste. The old fashioned method of throwing out Grain for the chickens to scramble for results in the overfeeding of the Strong and greedy fowls and the consequent waste of feed while on theother hand the weaker and Kess aggressive of the flock do not get their share. This homemade device is designed to solve the problem and the Hopper is so arranged that the chickens can eat at any time of the wheat cracked Corn Kaffir or egyptian Corn and a dry Mash composed of one part Cornmeal and Section of Chicken food Hopper. From the country gentleman two parts Light bran Well mixed. Each bin has a Small Hole at the Bottom Cov ered with a slide into the trough to regulate the flow of Grain As it is eaten so none is lost it contains enough to feed two or three dozen fowls for about a month and can be cheaply constructed out of packing cases with a roof of tarred paper. It should be set in the Yard on 2 by 4 boards to pre vent moisture from the ground add ing the feed. The designer of this Hopper has used it for several years and states that it saves one third of the amount of feed formerly used and increases the egg production very greatly.?country gentleman. For 4 if what most Farmers do not � know about farming they should l � l �\u25a0��. Orchard and Garden notes. Don t forget that rotation in the Flower Beds and Borders is As Neces sary As in the Fields and gardens. If you want to raise a Good crop of mice and insects that will damage the Orchard Trees let the weeds and grass lie thick on the ground. The Best fertilizer for asparagus 19 rotted manure from Grain fed horses. Asparagus is a heavy feeder and will stand All the manure you can spare. If you see a Little Mound of red dust at the foot of your Young Apple tree Don t pass it by lightly. That pile is the brings left by a worm that will surely kill the tree if you do not dig him out now. Apple Trees improperly pruned make Good nesting places for woodpeckers. The Birds Twig out the decayed Wood where stubs of branches have rotted in to the heart Wood and there Start housekeeping. Bend All Young and tender fruit Bushes and vines carefully to the ground place a layer of Straw on them and cover lightly with dirt. Utilize the Straw next Spring As a fertilizer and mulch for the Bushes. A lesson from Japan. Only big As Kansas she has More than 4,000 agricultural schools. Japan has about the area of Kansas but her percentage of agricultural land is about that of new Hampshire. It does t look As if she would need Many agricultural schools does it most of her farms Are so Small that they would about make a stack Yard for one of us. Yet Twenty three years ago says a japanese writer in Hoard s Dairyman Japan had six schools where farming was taught and then came the Twenty years of her most rapid Progress. China was Defeated in War and then the mighty Russia. The whole strength of the nation was expended on those things which would enable her to carry the awful Load of army Navy and bonded debt. And what became of the six agricultural sch ools instead of being allowed to dwindle they have multiplied until in 1908 there were in Japan 4,375 agricultural schools in these schools were enrolled 182, 209 pupils and in that year there were graduated from these schools 93,406 children. 4 How to make sausage.
