subtropical districts II.OOO.OOO acres are
being opened up under the cotton pros

government Is guaranteeing a mini

three years. Tin J'.rltlsh Australian

Yield of Potato
In 55 Years Increase Has
Been 4.4 Per Cent High
Grade Seed Is Urged. a..
(Prepared by tho United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
As potato growers, we arc still in
the "smnll potuto" class, If we are to
Judge our standing by the gain In the
uvernge production per acre made In
the United States In the lust .15 years,
statistics gathered by the United
States liepartiiicnt of Agriculture dur
ing tho last half centur show that
tho average production per ncre dur
ing the the year period, UMS-UVJl!, was
1R7 bushels, ttur gramlf.it hers did
almost us well fit) years ago, produc
ing In the tle-year period, lJSt'S IST'J,
nn avorngv of 1)1.5 bushels to the acre.
In other words our ability to gro
potatoes has luiprowrt during those
." j ears only enough to raise ibo
average production by -1.4 per cent.
I'rom J SOS to 1SS8 the average yield
decreased steadily Until It was but 7-1
bushels to the acre. Since that time
the nverage yield has been .steadily In
creasing until It hi now the highest It
has ever been. A number of reasons
for tho decline In yields during the
llrst half of this period are given by
the department, the most Important
among tlictn being the ravages of the
Colorado potato beetle during the
early period of Its Invasion of the
eastern United States, the financial
depressions of 1877 and 18fi:i. which
brought about u well-marked decline
n agriculture In New England, New
Vork and other heavy potato-producing
ureas, and a gradual depletion of
This downward tendency bus been
becked by a number of factors which
have helped to Increase the yield and
average production pVr acre. Some of
theso benellclal factors arc the Influence-
of the agricultural experimental
stations, agricultural colleges and Ibo
United States Department of Agrl-
iilture, through experimentations,
demonstrations and extension work;
the Influence of the bordeaux-mixture
treatment In the control of fungous
diseases uffectlng the potato; and the
development of special potato-growing
sections where the average yield
!s orten from two to three times the
jenernl average for the United States.
Produce Better Seed.
Hcccntly more attention has been
given to the production of better seed
by growers who are making a special
ty of producing certified seed nnd seed
of high quality. The use of high
grade seed, says the United States
Department of Agriculture, would In
crease the returns from potato crop
of the, country by many millions of
dollnrs. Good seed Is ono of tho de
termining factors In the production of
maximum crops of potntocs.
Early Molting Hens Do
Not Pay for Feed Bill
Due of the best indications that a
hen has quit laying for this year Is
the beginning of tho molt. The hen
stnrts to grow new feathers Just as
soon us the old ones drop out and
most of the feed that she gets goes
:nto the growing of feathers Instead
of Into the production of eggs. Many
people believe that these early molt
ing hens will get their new feathers
before winter und Iny eggs when they
itru highest In price, but experiments
buvo shown that the lieu that molts
In July or August takes u long time
to get her new feathers and Is natur
ully a poor layer. If she does start
laying before the winter Is over she
will not Iny enough eggs to pay for
her feed bill.
Corn Silage for Steers

Growing Asparagus Tips

The good or bad luck you hnve In

Greasewood Often Is
Poisonous to Sheep
Dangerous Feed When Tak
en in Large Quantities.
(Prepared by tho United Htnt'n Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Greasewood, n shrubby plant very
plentiful on the range In some parts
of the West, has been the cause of
occasional large losses of sheep. This
plant was listed as poisonous Ufi years
ago, but only recently have Investiga
tions been made by the United States
Department of Agriculture which
brought out definite Information con
cerning tho symptoms and the condi
tions under which poisoning will oc
cur. The results of this work arc con
tained in Department Circular 'J71l, en
titled "(ireasewood as a Poisonous
The Investigations have established
that under mot conditions this plant
is u good forage for hheep, and dai.
gerous when It is taken In consider
able quantities, nt least 1X pounds to.
the hundredweight of animal, In a
ver, short time. Losses may be pre
vented by taking care that sheep do
not graze too long on greasewood
when they are very hungry. Anlmnls
that Mice slum the symptoms usually
die; in other words, n quantity of the
plant which will cutise the symptoms
will cause death.
The greasewood plnnt, which Is
sometimes known as "chlco," Is light
green colored, scrnggly, with spiny
branches and slender, fleshy leaves
about lVi Inches long. It Is common
ly recognized by western stockmen,
but there are several other plants
sometimes called greasewood.

Excellent Ration for
Fattening Market Ducks
Ducks are fattened easier and
quicker than any other class of poul
try, If they are properly fed and han
dled. Here Is an excellent fattening
ration: Two parts cornmeal, one pirt
ench of wheat bran and middlings,
one part ground oats, two parts ground
bcof.MTiip. To this ndd three or four
per cent of coarse sand or grit and
mix the whole together with milk,
sweet or soim ftlve them all they
will out of this mixture three times a
day, If j on are In n big hurry to forco
them along; or, If you haven't time to'
do that, give them the mash as often
as convenient, and keep dry grains be
fore them In boxes all the time. Seo
that they have plenty of water to
drink, and keep It In troughs so thnt
several ducks can partake at tho samo
time. Don't give them too much lib
erty while fattening them for mnrkct,
for they fatten quicker In small quiet
runs. Ducks nre nervous and easily
frightened ; dogs nnd loud strangers
often cause serious disturbances. A
thorough fright will cnuse n duck to
Ioe more flesh nnd healthy growth
In hnlf nn hour than good care and
food will restore In several days. That
may sound like nonsense, but It's tho
experience of all who have tried It.
Males Not Needed for
Breeding Should Be Sola
Unless your roosters arc worth sav
ing for mating purposes, get rid of
them. Keep them nwny from the bens,
for infertile eggs will command n pre
mium over the fertile kind.
Scrub roosters, nnd even pure bred
cockerels thnt are not needed for tho
breeding pens and are not good enough
to command a price from other breed
ers, should be made ready for tho
market. There Is no reason why nny
farmer or poultryman should go on
feeding a lot of useless birds. Put
them In n pen nnd fatten them before
sending them to mnrket. Unless too
old, you will make n profit on your
feed because n fat bird will sell mor
rendlly, nnd of course weighs more.
Hoosterless farms nre not uncommon
In some sections of the country.
Laying Age of Pullets
of Different Breeds
An observation of tfle average num
ber of dnys lequlrcd to mature Leg
horns, Kocks and Iteds ns handled at
the Nebraska college of agriculture
shows the following: Single Comb
White Leghorns, 20.1 days; Hnrrcfl
Hocks, 239 dnys; Single Comb Rhode
Island Herts, 250 days. Tho uge at
time of laying tho first egg was tnken

such medium maturing breeds as
Uliode Islnnd Herts, Hurred and White
Hocks, Orpingtons, Lnngshans, etc.,
should be hatched ns nenr March 1
as possible If they are to be old
enough to luy by November 1, or In
