THE CITIZEN, FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 1913.
wnon othor tilings aro equal, prou
lably tho safest form of agriculture for
'the Inexperienced city man to tako up
lis a combination of poultry and fruit.
The logic back of this choice Is Bim
iple, and, we bollevo, sound.
Chickens will thrlvo and produco
(profitably under proper management
dn every section of this country. They
tare hardy and stand abuse well, whilo
tho amateur Is learning the ropes.
Small capital Is required to make a
istart, and they multiply rapidly. In
fact, a shrewd old Yankee, "down In
Maine," Is credited with starting a
successful poultry farm by borrowing
in setting hen from ono neighbor and a
sotting of eggs from another. After
the chicks wero hatched ho kept tho
hen until sho had laid a setting of
eggs and then returned both, thereby
discharging his debts without ex
pense. Any sort of well dralnod land will
do for chickens. About all one man
can look after profitably is 1,000 hens
and their offspring, and ho can count
on a dollar profit per hen each year.
In small flocks tho profits often run
much higher per hen. Housing 1,000
hens in colony houses holding 100
hens to the pen will cost from ?2,500
to $5,000, depending upon tho material
and the location.
By scattering theso houses over a
ten acre tract of land thero will bo no
need of insldo fences and the flocks
will keep separate. By planting this
ten ncres of good apples, provided it
is located in on apple growing region,
and handling same according to com
mercial orchard methods, ono can
mako tho land do double duty. It is
known now that proper location and
handling will secure a crop of apples
every year. The secret is this:
1 Spray trees properly.
2 Prune trees properly.
3 Keep tho ground cultivated all
4 Pinch off all but one of the green
apples from each fruit spur as soon
as they set.
B Uso heaters during late frost.
The third item keeps tho water in
tho solh and the apples stay on the
trees instead of blowing off. Tho
fourth rule 1b ono of the most im
portant, as it evens up tho strain on
itho tree nnd while the yearly crop will
be smaller than the natural crop one
'year and larger the next, it will cost
iloes to handle and the fruit will be
much better in form, size and color,
and it will bring in inoro money.
Such on orchard will bring in from
$300 to $600 a year per acre, and tho
cost of handling will not exceed $75.

Tho dwarfs will bear quickly and aro

Succession of Garden Crops.
Our springtime enthusiasm starts
tho garden off in great shape and we
plant somo radishes and lettuco and
peas. Later on wo find tlmo to plant
corn, cucumbers and tomatoes. Tho
class of vegetables which may go into
the ground very early is llkowlso har
vested very early. There Is a big gap
between this early harvest and tho
timo of green corn and red tomatoes,
yet wo havo to work Just as hard dur
ing this hungry period as If wo wero
getting a bounteous yield.
Why not plan tho varieties of vege
tables and their planting tlmo so as
to secure a continuous and amplo sup
ply of good, fresh green things? It's
just as easy as any other method of
garden management, and it's much
moro satisfactory. Instead of having
only half of your garden working after
tho early vegetables aro gone, plan to
put in other crops on tho samo ground
so that the succession will bo almost
The systematic rotation of farm
crops is an absolute necessity, in or
der to securo maximum yields, and to
keep down pests. Various crops havo
entirely different effects on the soil,
somo taking moro of ono element, oth
ers feeding heavily on another. The
legumes, such as clover and alfalfa,
are heavy feeders, but they possess
tho peculiar faculty of transferring ni
trogen from the air to the soil, and
this makes them our most valuable
class of plants, without question. Gar
den peas and bcanB belong to this
Potatoes and root crops, on the
other hand, add nothing and use up
a very great amount of plant food.
Other plants vary in proportion and
it is necessary to make frequent
changes of the location of a crop in
order to avoid using up all of any
ono element of plant food.
The problem of diseases and pests
1b a serious one, particularly in the
east. After a certain related class of
plants, like potatoes and tomatoes,
have been grown on the same land for
a couple of seasons, it becomes In

Move the crops around from year

the rows of tho first crop as soon as
the peas have been picked.
