SAVE ALL IHEJOBN POSSIBLE
Head of Extension Department of
State University Offers Some
Timely Advice to Farmer.
Omaha, Tho continued drouth an
warm weather has seriously damaged
tho corn crop In many parts of the
stnto, according to Prof. C. W. Pugs
ley, head or tho Extension Department
of tho Stato University. Under pres
ent conditions, much of tho corn can
bo saved by feeding If proper atten
tion Is given nnd tho corn Is not ne
glected. Reporta which have como to tho Ex
tension Department indicate that tho
damaged sections aro In every part of
tho stnto though tho southern part Is
moro affected than other Brctions. Re
quests hnvo been pouring In to Prof.
Pugsley, asking suggestions ns to tho
best method of getting tho most out.
of tho corn crop.
Realizing that tho condition Is gen
eral, Pugsley has requested tho Bur
eau or Publicity to cooperate with tho
Extension Department and tho news
papers or the state in disseminating
news relatlvo to the condition. "Ne
braska Is not affected as much aa
other states" says Professor Pugsley.
"However, that does not prevent ub
getting ns much out of tho corn crop
ns 1b possible. Generally speaking,
Nebraska has been fortunato In her
crops this yenr, especially small grain.
But tho corn crop has been affected
nnd now It Is up to us to got all we
can out of tho crop.
Most of tho queries aro. "How is It.
possible to get the most feed out or'
tho corn crop?" By properly handling
It Ib often easy to get from many
tlclds sulllclent feed to carry tho stock
on tho farm through winter.
Pugsley suggests three ways. Ono
wny Is to lot tho corn plant stand In
the field nnd then pasturing In tho
winter. Pugsley characterizes this as.
the poorest method as often times
much of tho drled-up portions will
blow away, llttlo feeding value remain
ing. Another and better method Is to--mako
fodder of tho corn by cutting nt
tho proper time. In this way It Is.
possiblo to save much feed from ft.
field which would otherwlso yield very
little. Many prefer to shred the corn,
tho claim bolng that this enchnnces
tho feeding vnluo of the yield. Profes
sor Leo of tho Department, says the
best method Is to put ns much corn as
possible Into a silo. Prof. Loo is author
ity for tho statement that one-half
moro cattlo cjn bo wintered on any;
field" of corn if That corn is put Into si
silo Instead of being cut for fodder.
"If you have a silo, by all menas--flll
It," Ib tho advice from the Exten
sion Department. In this emergency
it is not suggested that expensive si
los bo erected. Howovor, Professor
Chaso of tho University Bays a silo
may bo built for the purpose of savins;
Injured corn by a small outlay of
money. Chaso states that a wooden
silo holding 80 tons, may be built for
about $120, and will last soveral years.
Also that the samo sized silo may bo
built in tho ground at a cost of from
$10 to $23.
Now Is the tlmo to get tho most out
of tho corn crop. In somo sections,
now Is tho tlmo to put tho corn In silo
or cut It for fodder. In other seotlons,
It can bo left for Rovoral weeks, unlosB
weather conditions bocomo very se
vere. As long as tho corn Is growing falrly
well, It Is better to leave It In the
field, but In caso hot, dry weather
continues and tho corn burns, It la
better to cut It ror Teed. H a bIIo 1i
to bo built, no tlmo la to be lost
Thinks Parole Law of Benefit.
Lincoln. Secretary J. A. Piper of
tho stato- Prison board is of tho opin
ion that tho general public is not fully
aware of the good results which are
being brought about by tho system or
paroling prisoners of tho state peni
tentiary, particularly as casoa where
a man falls to llvo up to the trust
placed In him recolves public men
tion while thoso who make good re
ceive little, If any mention.
As an illustralon'of what the law
is doing he recits the following:
On January 1, 1912, "Richard Roe
was paroled to a fannor In the north
ern part of the state, whero ho was.
to recelvo $25 per month, besides his.
board and washing. HltTllrst term
expired the fourth of this month and
ho has received his final discharge.
Ho lost no tlmo from work during
those nineteen months and received
over $475, in cash. For clothing and
the necoBsarlos of llfo he spent about
$10 per month, leaving an actual cash,
balance of $285.
Since the parole law went Into ef
fect 210 prisoners havi been paroled.
A large number of these havo received
their final discharges, a few havo been,
returned to the penitentiary and
about ninety aro still on parole. Not
only haB the law beon a great benefit
In tho refer mat Ion or theee men, but
a groat saving In oxpenso to the state
of Nobraska, having reduced tho popu
lation of our stnto penitentiary from
470 on tho date of tho going Into effect
or this now law to 356 at tho present
time.
Ship Early to Avoid. Car Shortage.
Early orders to move range stock
Into Omaha and other river markets
aro being received by tho railroads
this week. In a few weeks Uio busl
nosa will bo heavy and It Is probable
that several of tho roada that carry
the bulk of tbi business will oxporl
ence car shortage.. Thoso shlppors
In Wyoming and the Dukntas, who
havo been having Ideal weather con
ditions, aro shipping tholr stock a
soon as possible In order to avoid any
possible shortage. Some or the sellers,
i bold their stock until later.
