The difference in yield bctwwn the

GIVE THE WIFE A CHANCE.
Farmers have had cause for
S repentance many times, but no
farmer was ever sorry that h
put in waterworks so that the
windmill would send water to
the house. When the housewife
can have all the water she needs
by a simple turn of the wrist
she will appreciate It and recip
rocate the kindness.
VETCH GOOD FOR THE SOIL
When Plawed Under It Adds Big
Stores of Humus and Nitrogsn.
Vetches are not very extensively
grown In the United States, nnd they
are probably as little known as any of
the leguminous farm crops. One rea
son perhaps is that they are more sen
sitiTe to climatic conditions than either
cowpeas or soy beans. While filling
practically the same place In the ro
tation, cowpeas and soy beans have,
therefore, naturally becomo more wide
spread in their cultivation. Tho sod
bed for vetch should be well pul
verized and bo In a firm and moist
condition. It is well to seed this crop
broadcast on fall plowing after having
harrowed or disked the field several
times during early spring to destroy
weeds. If there Is any danger of weeds
seriously menacing the crop it Is ad-
Photograph by Rhode I Bland agricultural
vlsable to sow unusually heavy, so that
a thicker growth of vetch will smother
flown the weeds at the very start.
Ordinarily from four to six pecks or
more per acre are sown, and this may
be either broadcasted or drilled. Tho
crop can also be seeded with clover,
serving as a sort of nurse crop for the
young clover plant and frequently
gives very good results In this way.
Sown with clover It makes an es
pecially desirable sheep pasture, and
Is also a very excellent soiling crop.
As a soil builder It Is fully equal to
cowpeas. On land adapted to It It
produces an extremely heavy growth
of vines. These plowed under add
enormous stores of humus and nitro
gen to the soil. American Agricultur
ist. How Europe Saves Fertility.
Tho fertility of European soils Is
maintained by maintaining tho supply
of active plant food and of organic
matter. A part of the nitrogen Is se
cured from the air, a part from tho
purchased feeding stuffs nnd eomo
from the nitrogenous fertilizers. Tho
losses of potash and phosphoric add In
the crop are counterbalanced by pur
chases In feeds and fertilizers. Every
care Is taken to prevent loss of plant
food. Leaves, stalks, etc., are either
saved and fed or are used as bedding.
By C. C. BOWSFIELD
strntlng the great loss that Is being
sustained throughout tho country In
not making closer study In require-1
ments of cultivation for largo grain
yields. It Is rotation nnd diversity I
that are lacking tho former to keep
up tho farm, the latter tho profits.
Every prnctlcal rotation must con
tain crops that uso nitrogen and crops
that gather It For example. In the
common rotation of corn, wheat nnd
clover the first two use nitrogen, nnd
tho third gathers it In fact clover la
a user nnd a gatherer of nitrogen. Do
not think because a legume adds nitro
gen to the soil thnt It does not use up
plant food. All tho leguminous crops .
use more potash and phosphorus than i
almost any of the grain crops. A largo
amount of nitrogen Is also used, but It
is taken from the air. I
Now let tho farmer push this dlvorsl-1
flcatlon far beyond the corn, wheat nnd
clover crops. Cowpeas nnd oats sown I
together make splendid foddor and ;
benefit the soil. They can be harvest-1
ed by midsummer nnd a crop of millet i
grown on the same land by fall. Rye j
and clover sown together In tho fall ,
can bo cut for fodder by June 1 nnd
potatoes, corn, rutabagas, millet or
cowpeas grown the same season.
While farmers are making $20 to $30
an acre on henvy grain crops they
should not overlook such products ns
onions, beans, potatoes, sugar beets
and fruit which return a profit of 5100
to $200 nn acre and place agriculture
on a business basis.
A GOOD EXCHANGE.
A manure pile Is not pleasing P
to the oye when It lies In the
yard, but it can be changed Into j
corn or hay In a year If It Is
hauled and spread In tho right J
places. Thcro is, about as much A
manure as there is of poisoning
a harvest hand with food. Iowa
SAVE THE BEST TURKEYS.
It Is a Mistake to Keep Inferior Fowls
For Breeding Purposes.
Very often turkey raisers sell off
for the early market all their earliest
and largest birds, which are usually
their all around best. With these, too,
they frequently sell off the old, leav
ing only the later and' smaller to fur
nish the breeding stock for nnother
season. Indeed, I have known every
thing to be sold but the very latest,
birds so late and small that males and
females could not be distinguished
until the approach of tho laying sea
son, when, likely as not, one or more
of the supposed hens turned out to be
gobblers gobblers too Immature tor
breeding purposes, but which were
either kept or sold for such, says a
Wisconsin turkey raiser In Orange
Judd Farmer. And such pullets as
there were wero small, poorly de
veloped, slow to begin laying.
I always save my best for breeders,
which of the young Is usually tho
earliest and largest These I select
early, before any aro killed or sold.
No matter how good the market or
how great tho price or how few oth
ers I have fit tho best I save. It la
big, early, well developed birds I want
to raise another yenr, nnd It Is big,
well developed birds I must have for
I know there Is a temptation to sell
first such as will bring the best prices,
especially when there aro only a com
paratively few suitable to sell and a
largo number to come on later, but
the little gained Is much more lost In
tho end. To be sure, good breeders
may perhaps be selected from tho Inter
and smaller, but rarely as good as
from the earlier and larger.
As to whether I save old or young
depends on Individual merit If there
Is enough of tho young better than
the old I save all young; If the old Is
the best, unless too old, I save .that.
Usually I save both old and young,
tho best of each, especially tho hens.
Bigger Corn Yield,
Six years' experiment In South Africa
showed that corn planted in rows two
feet apart gavo a greater yield than
when planted In wider rows.
Little Farm Hints.
Potash Is especially valuable for
wheat, cotton, tobacco, Irish potatoes
and the grasses. It should bo applied
In fall for wheat.
Select for fall plowing tho stubborn,
refractory clay soil nnd on nil fields not
fall plowed have clover crops growing
to bo plowed under in spring.
Prollflcncss Is In every case ns Im
portant a feature as there can bo In
seed corn. Ilence it Is very important
that tho seed cars selected should not
only bo of best quality In every par
ticular, but should be one of two or
threo cars that grow on tho stalk.
Tho best titno to plant apple trees
Is as soon as most of the leaves have
fallen, which Is generally about No
vember. The roots being then In an
active state and tho ground still re
taining a certain amount of beat, they
will form new roota before winter,
which is a material advantage.
LAWYERS SEEK TO
END LAW'S DELAYS.
Want the Supreme Court Empowered
to Moke Model Plan.
A committee to urgo upon congress
the necessity of vesting in tho United
aiaies supremo court tno power nnd
duty to propnrc n model system of
pleading nnd practice on tho common
law side of the federal courts has been
appointed by President Frank U. Kel
logg of the Amerlcnn Rar association
in response to n resolution adopted nt
tho nssoclatlon meeting in Mllwnukee
The members of this committee on
uniform Judicial procedure are Thomas
W. Sholton of Norfolk, Va., tho chair-
man nnd chief worker In the tnovo
mcnt for uniform court procedure; J.
M. Dickinson, Nnshvlllc; William B.
ilornblowcr, New York; Lou La D. Bran
dels, Boston, and Joseph N. Teal, Port
A statement sent out by tho Ameii-
AM Tina nn.n.l.ltnn
uiu -Kill, iimumuuu nujro.
The committee will request congress to
vest In tho UnlUxl States supreme court
both the power and tho duty to prepare
and put Into effect a modtl system of
pUadlnc nnd practice on tho common law
elde of the federal courts In tho hopo that
It will ultimately be adopted and become
uniform In tho states.
It Is believed that this will promote both
economy and speed In litigation. Tho su
preme court already has the power to
simplify federal procedure on Uio equity
side of the court and has almost complet
ed Its work.
This action on tho part of tho American
Bar association answers tho criticism that
the lawyers of tho country are doing noth
ing to reform legal procedure.
FALL TREATMENT OF SAN JOSE
Trees Infested with San Jose scale
should be pruned 'back In proportion
to the degree of injury or Infesta
tion. Whero they are badly infest
ed, at least half the tops should be
cut off. In doing this tho outer
branches and upper branches, which
are worse Infested, should be remov
ed, and the trees should not bo de
formed by pruning off the lower
After pruning, the next step is to
spray thoroughly with tho boiled
lime-sulfur solution, either home
made or commercial. This pruning
and spraying can bo done at any
time after tho leaves drop, and before
they appear again next spring. The
winter is a favorable season for this
kind of work, but where trees are
badly infested with this very de
structive pest, it is by all means best ,
to spray them very soon after the
leaves drop, and again the next
spring while the buds aro swelling. I
The spraying should be done thor-
oughly, so as to reach and cover well
every particle of hark from the tip of
the tallest twig to the base of the1
trunk. If any branches are too long
to bo reached with the spray liquid, '
they should be cut off. It is not nec-1
essary to use high power In doing
this spraying, and tho only direction
to be given is to be sure that the
work Is thoroughly done, with mater
ial that is etrong enough.
What slight complaint has come
from lack of satisfactory results with
spraying with lime-sulfur solution
has been due to too dilute material,
or diluting with too much water be
fore using it. To be sure that it Is
not diluted too far, one should test
it with an instrument made for tho
purpose, and called a hydrometer.
One great advantage of the lime
sulfur solution is that it is both a
fungicide and an insecticide, destroy
ing the germs of various kinds of
plant diseases such as tho -smuts,
rusts, mildews, leaf spots, scab, etc.,
besides mites and insects of all kinds
that It touches.
The commercial lime-sulfur solu
tion sold by various seedsmen, hard
waremen, druggists and others is all
right, if used strong enough; but if
used too dilute, it will not provo sat
isfactory. A sure test of the
strength by the hydrometer should
register at least three spaces' show
ing above the liquid, or 1.03 specific
gravity, as explained In tho directions
given with the Instrument. Another
point in favor of tho lime-sulfur so
lution Is that It can not be used
strong enough to hurt any tree,
shrub, bush, or other plant, If ap
plied while dormant. It Is also
cheaper, or less expensive than any
other material that can be used, and
Is more suro to kill tho scale, as
well as tho germs of various plant
A PROPEH IlEPItESENTATIVE.
The Fourteenth Congressional dis
trict composed of the counties of
Bradford, Susquehanna, Wayno and
Wyoming, will elect a man to repre
sent tho district In tho alxty-thlrd
Congress on November 5. 1
In deciding who to support for this
Important position there aro many
things to bo taken Into consideration. I
Tho principles of government for
which tho candidate stands, and his
ability to so present those principles
as to carry conviction to other mem
bers of tho House. Whether tho
candidate stands ready to advance
tho lntorests of this district. I
After carefully studying tho record I
of Hon. W. D. B. Ainey In the last
session of Congress, there can bo no
doubt of his fitness for the position
and his ability to defend tho interests
of his constituents.
This being a particularly strong
agricultural district, and legislation
affecting tho farming and dairying
Interests appeals to almost every. vo
ter in the four counties. As to Mr.
Alney's position in theso matters
read his speeches on the parcels post
and oleomargarine bills. No strang
er argument for the farmer can bo
found, and that it bad a good effect
Is proved by subsequent ovonts.
Mr. Alnoy is a congressman that
tho peoplo of the old Wilmot-Grow
district can point to with prldo, and
feel assured that their Interests will
not suffer with him on guard.
W. D. B. Alney Is certainly tho
right man to represent this district In
Congress, and wo predict that his
majority this fall will be doublo
what It was a year ago. How Mil

HON. JOEL G. HILL.
Democratic Cnndldato for Congress
man of this Congressional Dis
trict. Wayno county has not had a repre
sentative In Congress for over thirty
years. Her people now have an op
portunity to secure one who is in
every way worthy of their votes. He
is no stranger to Wayno counteans,
having faithfully and honestly serv
ed Wayne county as Associate Judge,
County Commissioner and also State
Senator in Harrlsburg. All of these
positions were filled by him with
credit to himself and honor to his
constituency. He Is a man of tho
most sterling honesty and Integrity,
and will discharge faithfully every
duty entrusted to him. Farmers,
who bear tho heaviest burdens of
taxation, are not represented In the
lawmaking bodies of the country to
the extent they should be, and this
fact affords ono of the best reasons
why Mr. Hill should bo elected. He
Is also a veteran of the Civil war,
and because he helped as a soldier
to preserve the Union, he deserves
the united support of his fellow
HON. II. C. JACKSON.
A Man Tlint Can bo Depended Upon.
I favor the election of U. S. Sena
tors by direct vote of the people.
I am a farmer and as such am in
terested in all questions pertaining
to the farmer and the farmers' or
ganization, the Grange.
Any legislation in favor of the
wage-earner, upon whom tho farmer
is to a great extent dependent, will
also receive my support.
