Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 11, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LETHBMDGE DAILT HERALD SATURDAY, AUGUST 11,1917 'the Farm Labor Problem 1 hnvo visited nearly every type of farm in the west ami almost without exception the snmll farm waa the only typo that made especial efforts td furnish the help with comforts other than just n bunk-house. On B0% of the large farms where only a bunk-house Is supplicl t he hired men must con struct their own bed nml Ret straw from the burn to sleep on. It is much better in Canada, nevertheless, than In the United States, probably owIuk to the colder climate. The steadier help do not carry their own bed here as thW do below the line and most farms hero have a Rood supply of bedding. iV good bod and clean sleeping quarters mean a great deal to any laboring man. It Is second only to food. Although not two farmers furnish the same-kind of food, yet there arc very few that, serve a poor table. The food is tho smallest diHiculty yet the larg It Is n problem .that needs much thought. Of course, on a small farm. wh>re the help stayn the year nroilfitl and only onu or two men aro kept It Is less difficult. Just by the* way of s-iigirestloii, if you are contemplating on building n place to quarter your help, you can. with very little extra expense, make such conveniences as ivill supply hot water and bath very easily, A hot water tank can lie made to tit most any stove. In summer it is only n matter of heating once a week and In winter a lire must be kept anyhow-*o. that tho fuel expense Is at n minimum when you consider the appreciation taken by the men. A few feet of celling lumber will partition ofT a bath and the plumbing and fittings ;.

How to apply stable manure on land to obtain tho host results In tho drlor regions ot the prnirio is a problem not always well understood. Tho most convenient tlmo to haul mnnuro Is in the lato fall, or during tho winter and early spring when it is impossible to work on tho land. On account of our dry climate tho manure is apt to bo coarse and dry. If this is ploughed under and a crop is put in at once, the results aro nlmoat certain to bo disappointing, bocauso owing to tho trashy condition of the manure. Tho soil is held too open and dries out rapidly. The manure so applied is only partially rotted by fall, for tho growing crop has kept tho soil so dry that proper decomposition has been provontcd. Thus, instead of the manuro being an asset, it has really been a detriment lo the first crop. From the experiments carried on nt the Lothbridgo Station in this connection, it has been found that there aro two methods of applying tho manure to land that Invariably glvo satisfactory results. Tho first, and probably the rd�ro satisfactory method, is to apply the manure on land that Is to be summer fallowed, hauling it any time that is convenient -during tho previous fall, winter or spring, tor af-tor It Is turned under while tho land Is being ploughed for fallow to a depth of sovon or eight inches, it hns> plenty of chance to rot during tho summer and becomo well incorporated in tho soil. Should there bo weeds or volunteer grain come from tho manure thoy will naturally bo killed by the surface cultivation given to the fallow. Manure in dry soil not only increases the plnnt food but adds to the humus which incroasos tho soil's capacity to retain moisture. Tho same method should bo followod in applying manuro to tho vegetable gardon, 1. e.,' lp should bo ploughed under and the land should bo allowed to remain fallow the samo as for field crops, the only difference being that a heav-ior application of manuro may bo given. It is not advisable to apply manuro on land that is to be ploughed and put into vegetables the samo season; in fapt tho only way this can bo done without undesirable results Is to use very well rotted material and give only a light dressing. . Another placo where manure can bo applied to advantage Is on grass lands. It has been found that a mulch of myKlnd applied to the grass meadow In the fall Is very beneficial, due in a largo measure to the winter pro-, tectlon afforded the plants. Manure applied to grasi land should be well scattered, for, when so applied, the winter snows and spring rains will pack it enough to mako it He so close to the soil that little, if any, will rake up when the hay crop Is being cut. the following summer. This fall application of manure is particularly rocbtn-niendod for all kinds of grasses, but it is also beneficial to alfalfa. R. C MERITHEW Live Stock Auctioneer Let me conduct your tarn sales.
