Treatment of "Sick" Plants.
The plan of treating sick plants with
sprays of Iron sulphate solution Is be
lieved to bo the solution of a serious
problem of pineapple growers In the
Hawaiian Islands, though the details
of application are yet to be perfected.
The black surface soli near Honolulu,
over an arei of 0,000 to 10,000 acres,
contains manganese, up to two or
thrco per cent, and pineapple plants
In this soil, though growing well for a
time, eventually become weak nnd
sickly, with drooping yellow leaves.
The fruit, which develops and ripens
Imperfectly, is made unpalatable by a
peculiar acidity and lack of sugar.
The Investigation of M. O. Johnson, of
the Honolulu experiment station, has
recently brought the discovery that the
mnnganeso dioxide in the soli renders
the iron Insoluble, and that, In soli
having a great abi .ance of Iron, the
plants have failed from lack of this
element. Injections of Iron sulphate
promptly restored greenness and vigor.
In field experiments, feeding iron
to the roots gave no results, but It was
found that when the leaves were wet
with copperas solution enough Iron
was absorbed to supply their needs.
The flavor of the treated fruit was
equal to that of the product of the
best pineapple land.

Hogging down corn, once in dls
rcputo and counted shiftless, bus now
become respectable and moves in the
very best society.
Careful experiments ns well as prac
tical experience of hard-flsted farmers
havo shown that tho hog is the most
economical corn harvester known. He
nusks tho corn, consumes it without
wnsto and returns ns much or more
pork per bushel of corn thnn where the
grain Is husked nnd carried to him.
The cost nnd labor of corn husking
ara thereby snved.
Furthermore, during the process tho
animals have spread tho resulting ma
nure over the land in on even man
ner, another saving of labor and great
benefit to the soil. Particularly where
the corn is not of the highest com
mercial quality nnd is Intended for Im

Don't forget that corn alone, while

cowpeas or soy beans between the
rows in tho summer and by fall they
have a good growth of pasture. Itupo

pose. If conditions are favorable, sow
a patch of rape along one side of the
cornfield in early fall where it won't

make a good growth and give lots of
pasture as well as supplement the
corn in case you hog it down.
SERIOUS EGG-EATING HABIT
Many Writers Recommend Drastlo
Measures to Remedy Evil Brought
About by Confinement
Tho egg-eating habit is one of the
serious troubles the poultrymnn has to
contend with. Mnny writers recom
mend drastic measures in combating
the evil the selling or killing of the
entire flock, If the habit is general.
In general, It may be stated that the
cgg-eatlng habit is brought about by
confinement, the accidental breaking
of eggs in the nest, the feeding of egg
shell with portions of the egg-sub
stance adhering, and a lack of animal
and mineral food in the ration.
The two most general causes are
confinement and lack of mineral and
animal food. Hens having free range
seldom contract the bad habit. The
reason for this is plain. They are in
and about the Wylng house only while
laying, and at other times are too busy
hunting for food to fall into evil ways.
It's the idle hen that contracts the

OLD TURKEYS FOR BREEDING
Fowl Is In Its Prime at Three Years
Poar Practice to Dispose of All
the Mature Birds.
The turkey Is not fully matured un
til two years of age, and Is in his
prime at three years, and nearly as
goed at four years old.
It is therefore a mistake to sell off
all the older birds and retain the young
ones for breeding purposes.
ANIMAL FOOD FOR CHICKENS
Meat-Fed Fowls Make Quicker and
Cheaper Gains Than Others
Milk la Good Substitute.
An agricultural investigator, nftor
scries of tests, has come to the
conclusion that meat-fed chicks make
quicker and cheaper gains thou" oth-
rs, regardless of size, nnd that chicks
started on n ration deficient In mil
mal food never regain their lost
ground. In some of his own experi
ments he found that hens without
mcnt generally begun laying before
ment-fed hens nnd maintained their po
sition for weeks and oven months on
such rations. Ho concludes that' al
though the work dono by most invest!
gators has usunlly shown n decided su
periority for tho meat-fed laying hens,
there is sufficient evidence the other
way to warrant further Investigation.'
In the fnttcnlng of fowls, nnlmul food
has appcurcd to be essential to tho
best results, except when milk has
been used, but of the various sources
there seems to be little preference
aside from convenience or economy.
Tho substitutes for nnlmnl food In
common use are milk, milk albumen,
or dried milk, vegetable sources of
protein, and bone nsh or phosphate
sources. Milk albumen has not gen
erally given good results. Milk, sour
or otherwise, has given conflicting re
sults, vegetable protein when used
under favorable conditions, has often
given as good results ns when protein
from animal sources has been used.
Results of feeding bone nsh or somo
carrier of phosphorus indicate that
some of the advantage that has been
claimed for animal protein may pos
sibly be due to tho mineral matter con
tained In the meat scrap or cut bone
SHIPMENT OF DEAD ANIMALS
In Some Instances Shippers Have Vlo.
lated Regulations of Agricul
It hns come to the attention of the
U. S. department of agriculture that
in some instances shippers of live stock
have violated the regulation of the de
partment prohibiting tho shipment of
dead animals in the same car with
live animals. Tho regulation, which
was adopted February 10, 1015, and
amended July 1, 1010, is as follows :
"No dtmd animal shall be transport
ed, offered, or accepted for transpor
tation in the same car with live ani
mals from the original point of ship
ment In nny State or Territory or tho
District of Columbia to or through any
other State, Territory, or the District
The foregoing regulation is binding
alike upon individual shippers, rail
roads, and other carriers. Violation
of tho regulation is punishable by a
fine of $100. The original regulation,
B. A. I. Order 210, and tho later,
amended regulation, B. A. I. Order 2-15,
were promptly made public, but it is
possible that some individual shippers
are not familiar with the regulation.
They should hereafter be careful to
observe It Failuro by several rull
rouds to observe the regulation has
already resulted in prosecutions of
them and the imposition of penalties.

NATURAL CRAVING FOR MEAT
Hens In Conffhement Should Be Given
Regular Supply of Animal Food
of Some Kind.
Hens have u natural craving and lik
ing for animal food. In summer,
when they can roam the fields and
meadows their uppetlte for animal
food is amply grutified by the finding
and consuming of thousands of worms
and bugs. During the winter months,
if no animal food Is supplied, the hen,
if given the chance, will satisfy her
appetite for animal food by eating
eggs. Hens in confinement, and at all
seasons of tho year when animal life Is
not abundant on the range, should be
regularly supplied with animal food ol
some kind. When pgg-shells aro fed to
hens, they should be very finely cruni
'bled. Browning them in the oven wll
not deetroy their food value, and whci
browned they crumble easily.
VALUE OF IMPROVED ROADS

It has been stated, nnd correctly so,
that only 10 per cent of tho public
