ON SANDY LOAMS
Legume Can Be Grown Success
fully on Variety of Soils Un
der Adverse Conditions.
BEST AS LEGUMINOUS CROP
It Has Greatest Value In Southern
StateSt Gradually Lessening North,
ward Seeds Are Commonly
Used for Human Food.
Willie cowpeas do best on sandy
louius, they succeed on practically nil
types of well-drained soil, According to
specialists of the bureau of plant In
dustry of the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture. No other legume
can be grown so successfully and on
such a variety of soils under adverse
conditions as the cowpeas, A very
rich soil Is not conducive to the best
results with the crop. Good corn land
Is considered particularly favorable.
Warm Weather Crop.
The cowpea Is u warm weather
crop. It has the greatest vulue In the
southern states, gradually lessenlii'
northward. It Is grown, however, In
the southern parts of Ohio, Illinois,
Indlnnn, nnd New Jersey, and In parts
of Michigan. In general, the cowpen Is
adapted to about the same climatic
conditions as corn. It requires some
what more heatr however. It will
stand a considerable degree of drought,
but under very dry conditions will
produce only a moderate quantity "of
bay and a very small number of seeds,
In the southern states the cowpea Is
the best known and most extensively
grown leguminous crop. It Is grown
mainly for forage and to Improve the
soli. The seeds, In addition, nre rath
er commonly used for human food. As
a catch crop and for liny or seed pro
duction cowpeas nre especially valu
able In nlinost any system of rotation.
In many seqtlonp of Missouri,- Arkan
sas and Tennessee a rotation of wheat
or oats and cowpeas has given good
results. On farms where live stock Is
kept the following rotation Is very

Worked In Rotation.
In sections devoted to growing to
bacco a sefen-yenr rotation of tobacco,
wheat, two years of grass, corn with
crimson clover ns a cover crop, cow
.peas, and red clover, lias been recom
mended by a state experimental sta
tion. A good rotation In the corn
belt on land where corn nnd whentjir
oats are regularly grown consists of
corn, soy beans, wheat, nnd clover,
with cowpens for liny when clover
falls. Cowpens are to be recommended
also as n crop to precede alfalfn.

the United States Department of
Agriculture, contains much valunblo
Information on tho growing of cow

GROWERS OF SORGHUM SEED

A list of growers of pure sorghum
seed bus been Issued this yenr by the
Knnsns Slnte Agricultural Kxperlmont-

similar lists which hnve been published
In the past on whent, corn nnd other
principal cereal crops. The list Is

farmers to tell the exact grado of

TREATMENT FOR BULLS' FEET
Many Useless Cripples Could Be
Avoided by Giving Some Atten
tion to Underpinning.
Unfortunately ninny good bulls be
come useless cripples through neglect
of their feet. Few things nre more
painful than to see a good bull limp
ing along on his heels, with long, up
turned hoofs. No nmount of attention
enn restore the sprightly step and
erect rnrrlnge that are characteristic
of n vigorous bull, when once his feet
hnvo been seriously neglected. Preven
tion Is nlwnys better than to venture
the risks of a cure.
CORN TESTS BETTER

Pounds Per Carload When
Shipped in' Bulk.
"Shrlnknge" In bulk carloads of po
tatoes averages three per cent, ac
cording to n survey of marketing con
ditions made by the United States De
pnrtment of Agriculture. This amounts
to 1,200 pounds per enriond. The
"shrlnknge" Is less where potatoes nre
sncked, as this reduces pilfering nnd
rough handling to the minimum.

BEST TIME TO SELECT CALF
Make Selection of Young Animal
While It Is With Its Mother and
The best time to select n calf la nt
a few months of age, when It may bo
wen wllh Its mother, or, nt any rate,
before It Is weaned. Observe tho calf's
mot her. If she is n wide, dccp-bodled
cow with plenty of slzo and Is giving
a liberal supply of milk, you may be
rensonnbly sure that the calf, If sired

May Be Seen With, Its Mother.
by a good hull and properly cared for,
will grow Into n useful bi ceding an
imal. Another ndvnntnge of selecting
the calf at this tlmo Is thnt It may bo
necessary to select It nt weaning tlmo
or oven nfter It Is weaned, but the best
time, ns stated, Is beforo weaning.
Calves are frequently classified at
fairs and cnlf shows ns "nonlor" nnd
"Junior" calves, depending upon tho
time of yenr they were dropped. A
cnlf, for instance, thnt was droppod
between September 1 and December
31 the yenr previous to the show,
would be clnssed ns "senior" cnlf, and
one dropped between January 1 and
August ill previous to the show, n
"Junior" cnlf. As a rule, a fall or se
nior calf,, on nccount of Its age nt the
u.wul time of holding the show, Is to
be preferred, although there are ad
vantages In selecting a spring or Ju
nior cnlf, especially one dropped In
Jnnunry or not later than February.
This, however, depends upon the niles
of the contest nt which the calf Is to
be shown and upon the facilities nt
bnnd for feeding nnd caring for It.
MILK FROM UNTESTED COWS
Orphan Asylum at New Haven, Conn.,
Provided With Product of Tuber
A glaring Instance of the dangers of
marketing milk from untested tubercu
lous cows wns recently reported to the
United States Department of Agricul
ture by one of Its field men engaged In
At tho request of the meat Inspec
tor of New Haven, Conn., the federal
expert examined the carcass of a cow
recently killed nt n locnl slaughter
house. The anlmnl showed extensive
lesions of tuberculosis In the lungs,
liver, nnd other pnrts of the body. In
vestlgntlon revealed that tho cow had
been sent to the city by n dnlrymnn
who wns delivering the milk from his
herd to un orphan asylum of the city,
nnd nlso thnt the milk was not pas
teurized. Upon further Investigation, In which
the state authorities nt Hnrtford co
operated, a test of tho entire herd wns
made. Of a totnl of 25 cnttle, 23 re

PROVIDE COMFORT FOR COWS
One of Essential Things to Think
About In Construction of Build
ing for Animals.
Comfort is one of the things to think
nbout nnd provide for In the building
of a dairy barn. Stanchions nre sntls
fnctory, especially the typo thnt swings
free nnd nllows n measure of side
movement. The length of the stnll Is
not often enough reckoned with. Give
tho cows plenty of room to stnnd nt
ense with their hind feet two or threo
Inches forwnrd of the gutter. If tho
cows vary In size, run the gutter at a
slight angle, so that the wlalls at one
epd tiro somewhat shorter than they
nre nt tho other end of the bnni. This
allows the placing of the cows accord
ing to size In such a wny that the stnlls
can bo kept clenn without trouble.
KIND TREATMENT IS NEEDED
Docile Creature Is Willing to Make
Friends With Keeper Will Re.
sent Rough Handling.
Kindness should not bo forgotten,
for the cow Is n docile creature willing
to be friends with her keeper when
she finds out that he Is her frjend and
no reason to fight. The more Intelli
gent nnd sensitive the nnlmnl Is, the
more likely It Is to resent unjust treat
ment. SUBSTITUTE USED FOR MILK
Success With Calf Meal Is Governed
Largely by Experience of Feeder
and Vigor of Calf.
Tho use of cnlf menl as an entire sub
stitute for milk Is frequently observed.
Success in Its use In this way Is gov
erned largely by the experience of the
feeder, constitutional vigor of the calf
nnd quality and method of preparing
the calf meal.
