(Prepared by tho United Stntps Dt'imrt

Tt Is generally conceded that tho

agriculture. In general, more depends
upon tho physical condition of tho
soil thnu upon Its strict classification.
Select the field for sugar beete with
reference to tho quality of tho sur

age nnd tho fitness to follow tho pre

contact with tho seed by use of tho
press wheel and rollers. Cultivate as

Rotate with other crops to improve
the soil condition anda to eliminate
pests. Keop plenty of' live stock to
utlllzo the beet tope and other feed
and supply stable manure. In har
vesting the beets see that they aro
all gathored, properly topped, and as
free as possible from dirt. Cover tho
beets as soon as topped to prevent
evaporation, and utilizo beet tops,
pulp and lime with a view to improv
ing soli conditions.
Tho by-products ot tho beet field
nnd eugur mill that aro of particular
importance to tho farmer aro tho beet
tops, tho pulp nud tho wasto lime. If
properly handled, tho beets form n
valunblo nsset for tho beet grower,
and in considering tho value of a beet
crop they should bo reckoned at their
real worth as a stock food. Many
farmers sell their tops at a cash price
ranging from $2.50 to ?5 per acre, in
which case tho grower Ib tho loBor
for tho reason that the tope are of
greater value to him as a stock food,
and if he allowB tho tops to leave his
farm ho loses their manurial value,
consisting of a large part of mineral
plant food taken up by beets in tho
process of growth, and also their
humus value, which results from re
turning tho tope to tho soil in the
form ot stablo or barnyard manure.
The most economical way to handle
tho tops is to gather them into piles
soon after they wilt and beforo
they becomo thoroughly dry. In this
condition7 they can bo gathered with
much less loss than would be tho case
if they were left scattered over tho
ground until dried. After thoy havo
cured in the piles they should bo
hauled to tho feed yard, where they
should bo fed in properly constructed
racks to avoid waste.
13eot pulp is an excellent stock food.
This by-product is tho refuse that re
mains after tho beets havo been
sliced and tho sugar extracted. As
a stock food it may bo used cither as
greon pulp, that is, Just no it comes
from tho mill, or it may bo dried.
Wasto llrno is a by-product of tho
sugar mill, which under certain con
ditions Is of considerable valuo to tho
farmer for correcting tho acid condi
tion of tho soil. It is well known that
a soil should bo neutral or slightly

make it tendor und easily digested,
and tho larger it is tho more heat will

As regards composition poultry does
not differ as much as is commonly
supposed'1 from meat of other domestic
nnimalB used for food. Individual
kinds and specimens, of course, vary
in the relative amounts of protein and
fat contuined, and there are certain
flavors in poultry which differ from
thoso In other meats. Hut these dif
ferences are so small that they aro
practically negligible In ordinary diet

easily digested than beef and mutton,
but only very slightly. Tho difference
in digestibility between tho various
kinds ot poultry probably depends on
tho amount of fat contained, tho fatter
sorts being least easily digested. Ton
dcrnese of fiber may have something
to do with both ease and thorough
ness ot digestion, and, if bo, young
birds are moro easily digested than
old, and tho less-used musclcH of tho
chlckon, such as tho breast, more eo
than tho much-used tissues ot tho'lega.
Similarly, whlto-fleshod birds may
bo moro easily digested than dark
fleshed, becauso the fibers of their
flesh aro lesa closely act; but this is
not fully proved. Indeed, very llttlo
is positively known on this subject,
and that little seems to indicato that
tho differences In thoroughness of di
gestion are very Blight, and that cook
ing has much more to do with the
digestibility ot tho birds than thoso
