Timber Inud that Is not producing

usually utilized as pasturo for several
years before stumps are removed. Dur

exercised If this method la used In or
der to destroy the roots, so that they
will not Interfero with cultivation.
A common method of preparing n
stump for burning Is to dig two holes
on opposite sides of tho stump to a
dopth( of about HO inches. Generally
connection is mndo at tho bottom of
these holes by digging away the wall
of earth between them. Any ndherlng
earth Is scraped from the tnp root and
a llro started In one of the holes. If
the tire Is kept up It will burn most
of the objectionable underground parts
of the stump. Another method suc
cessfully used In the long-leaf plno
niea of the South Is to dig n hole on
one side of tho stump, and with u lfo
meh or 2-lneh auger bore n hole- dl
agonnlly through the stump from the
oi poslte side to the bottom of tho hole,
A' llro Is then started In tho exenvn'
Hon nnd the auger hole serves as n
Hue. A method largely used In tho
northwest Is to bore a hole horizontal
ly into the base of tho stump to a
point n little beyond tho center. Ah
other hole Is stnrted as high up on tho
side of tho stump as possible and bored
downward nt an angle until It meets
the first boring. A llro Is stnrted at
the Interception by the use of oil,
p'tch, coals or by dropping a hot Iron
attached to a wire Into tho hole. Af
ter the fire Is started brush Is piled
about the stump.
Dynamite Is frequently and buccss
fuliy used In removing stumps. Smnll
ebnrges nro found useful In splitting
stumps which can then be burned moro
readily. Larger charges are used to
break the stump In pieces, so that they
may bo pulled easily, or sometimes to
remove them from the ground entirely,
Tho best time to blast stumps Is when
the ground is saturated with water,
and the electrical method of llrlng
blasts is recommended.
Where a large number of stumps nre
to be removed the use of a stump
puller Is advisable. There are two
general types; those that pull the
stump from the side, such as a capstan
type, nnd those that lift tho stump ver
tically out of tho ground by the use of

PROFITABLE ON MOST FARMS

General farming unci live stock rais

edge of tho corn belt. This Is brought

of southern Michigan, northwestern
Ohio and northeastern Indiana.
It Was found that specialized dairy
farms paid better normally than dairy

did not pay ns well ns tho combination
of dairying and hog raising. Dnlrytng

better labor Income than uny other
