eighteen Inches deep should bo filled
with concrete If. sand and cement
Is used to fill tho trench, tho mixture
should be In tho proportion of ono
part cement to four parts of sand.
If tho sand contains coarse gravel,
ono part of cement and five parts of
sand should bo used. This concrete
curb should extend abovo tho ground
a foot or two, to protect the silo from
wash water. When tho concrete has
settled for twenty-four hours, ex
cavation of tho inside of tho pit can
safely be commenced.
Tho diameter of the pit, including
tho coating of cement, should bo
even at every point with tho inside
of tho curb to permit an even settling
of the silage. After the pit has been
dug to a depth of five feet tho walls
should bo carefully trimmed and
given a coating of cement. This
coating should bo at least one-inch
in thickness. By coating tho walls
of tho pit as it is dug, no scaffold
ing will be necessary. An ordinary
block and tackle and bucket can be
used for removing dirt when the
pit becomes too deep for handling
by shovel. A cement flooring will
servo to make the pit air tight and
keep out seep water.
TEST YOUR COWS
The basis of all successful dairy
ing of the present day is cow testing.
Each cow should bo tested at least
once a week for quantity and quality
of milk, for only in this way can tho
poor cows that eat up the profits be
detected from the profitablo produc
ers, it is mucn Detter to navo six
good cows than twelve poor or me
dium ones. Tho Babcock test will
enable any -farmer to determine the
value of each cow's milk as easily
as an expert chemist. No farmer
who owns a herd of cows, no matter
how small, can afford to be without
ono unless he belongs to a test as
sociation. While It is truo that a
largo majority of dairy farmers have
not used the Babcock test on their
farms, it Is a remarkable fact when
it Is considered that this teBt is tho
only method yet discovered by which
the actual value of a dairy cow can
ho accurately determined. Not all
dairymen, however, are thus ne
glectful, and those who have adopted
this testing method are now reaping
the fruits of their progressiveness In
the possession of moro valuable
herds and larger returns in milk pro
duction. The painstaking farmer
who is practical usually experiences
no difficulty in determining tho ac
tual value of his cowb when ho uses
the test. It enables him to distin
guish the good from tho medium,
the medium from the poor, and thus
makes it easy for him to get rid of
tho unprofitable animals. By this
test animals that are believed to be
good will be shown to possess little
merit, while some that are con
sidered unprofitable will show that
they are possessed of superior dairy
qualities. Weigh the milk from each
cow once a week and test it.
The dairy division of the depart
ment of agriculture has been con
ducting experiments .to determine
the best' way of pasteurizing milk so
as to kill the disease germs and yet
not give the milk a cooked flavor or
lessen its nutritive value. Pasteur
izing at low temperatures was found
to bo more satisfactory than pas
teurizing at high temperatures.
When milk is pasteurized at 145 de
grees F, instead of the usual tem-
f i.., r ir,i rlocrrppR F. it Was
found that the chemical changes are
so slight that it is unlikely that the
protein (muscle building element)
or tho phosphates of lime and mag
nesia are rendered less digestible
than they aro in raw milk. There
fore, -the department recommends
that when market milk is pasteur
ized it should bo heated to about 146
degrees F, and held at that tempera
ture for about thirty minutes.
HARVESTING SEED CORN
Every corn crop startB with tho
gathoring of tho seed in tho fall.
If a good corn crop is wanted In
1914 it is time to lay plans for It
now. Tho difforenco in yield of
next year's corn crop resulting from
seed gathered at tho proper tlmo in
tho proper way, and tho seed as
ordinarily handled, may mean many
bushels per acre. Tho best time to
gather seed corn is beforo tho first
killing frost, which in tho northern
sections conies from tho 10th to the
20th of this month. In a normal
season if the corn is acclimated it
should bo far enough along toward
maturity so that good seed can bo
gathered at this time. Most farm
ers know that to got best results
from seed corn, It should bo gathered
beforo it is ready for husking. Wlion
tho largo proportion of tho earlier
ears show the dent beginning to har
den, tho seed-corn day has arrived.
Tho best part of the field should bo
worked first, examining every hill
with tho eye, at least. Whenever a
desirable ear is found it should bo
gathered, providing it is produced on
a hill that has a full stand of corn.
No seed ear should be gathered from
hills of corn with less than three well
developed stalks. It will bo noticed
that the larger and more fully de
veloped ears are produced on the
hills. that have ono or two stalks. It
is considered undesirable to use thoso
ears for seed as their size can bo
accounted for from the fact that they
had less competition in life, rather
than an inherent tendency to pro
AVOID CLODS IN THE SOIT,
A clod is inert or dead soil, be
cause the bacteria have ceased their
activities or aro greatly hindered in
their work of rendering Insoluble
mineral and organic matter in tho
soil soluble and available to the roots
of plants. Clods annually do a vast
amount of damage to crops. At this
time of tho year they aro formed by
the wholesale In the stubble fields
that are allowed to lie undisturbed
for months after the crops have been
removed. After the harvest but
little vegetation grows In tho stubble
fields, especially in a dry year, so
tho soil dries out very rapidly. It
cracks on top, and this increases tho
rapidity of tho soil moisture waste,
resulting In tho rapid formation of
clods. Lato fall and early spring
rains may dissolve these clods, but
the soil has been deprived of an
enormous amount of plant food that
might have been mado available for
next year's crops had not the clod
condition prevented the soil bac
teria from doing their work, which
at this time of the year are tho best,
cheapest and most willing workers
tho farmer has. When soil condi
tions are unfavorable the soil bac
teria do not work, and they never
make up for lost time when they do
work. Clod formation can be pre
vented by using the disc on stubble
ground before plowing. Tho sooner
it is used after harvest the better.
Use It enough to get the soil loose
on top. This loose layer will pre
vent the soil from cracking and keep
a large amount of the water from
escaping. In addition to this, when
plowing begins the furrow slice will
be In the best possible condition for
making close connection with tho
bottom of the furrow and thus re
establishing good capillary action in
a short time. This Is of very great
Importance If the land is to be seeded
to winter wheat. If clods form, as
they do under the most favorable
conditions, tho time to break them
up is vhen tho soil is fresh, moist
and friable. The fundamental point
