On the boundary line of two farms
In an Austrian village there is a large
gooseberry bush , from which the two
farmers have for years gathered the
product. "What grows on my side ia

Three years ago the neighbors had a
misunderstanding , and this came to a
climax when the gooseberries became
ripe. A lawsuit followed , and appeals
were made to higher judicial bodies.
The final decision has just been record
ed In an Austrian paper.
Each party is to have the right to
pick the berries which grow on his side
of the line , just as it was originally ,
but neither may destroy the bush. The
emits are cluirged half to each litigant.
Kac-h fanner had to pay two hundred
and twenty-five krone. The yearly
yield of the bush is worth about one-
hair krone , and the judge told the ng t-
h : ? farmers :
"With good duck. It will take you
only eight hundred years to mate the
bush pay. Take good care of it"

Secretary "Wilson Points Out Beason
for Hard Times.
It has remained for Secretary of Ag
riculture James Wilson to solve the
true reason for high prices and the high
cost of living which has been bothering
the housewife and the mechanic for sev
eral years past , lie sny3 the people ,
the labeling people , are themselves to
blame. They fail to provide the neces
sary help to the American farmer. In
years gone by the fanner had his allies
other men who came to his aid , hard
ly supporting him when the burden
grew too vast. lint now everywhere
in mine and railroad , in factory and
forest the teeming millions of his
neighbors have robbed him of them. To
day he stands alone , striving with ti
tanic courage to endure the strain ; yet
seemingly doomed , in spite of his vast
numbers , to sink under his toil , unless
the help he needs be given.
In his statement Secretary Wilson
"The productiveness of the United
States along agricultural lines is not
keeping pace with the growth of our
population. Meats are dear ibecanse
meat-bearing animals are falling be
hind the population in relative number * .
Labor is scarce on .the farm , and labor
is dear on the farm , because the fac
tory , the forest , the mine and the rail
road are taking away the farmer's
workers through wages iixed at rates
the farmer can not afford to pay. The
! population of the United ( States is grow-
jing both by reason of the natural in-
j crease of the families domiciled in
. America and by accretions through immigration -
; migration from abroad. But the iiurni-
j grants do not reach to the farm. The
I farmers who do come to us from for-
j eigu countries do not find their way to
j the farms of this country ; and the iiu-
I migration laws prevent American farni-
i ers from going to foreign countries and
j selecting there the prospective iinmi-
grants whose services could aid them.
J At no period of our history has the
j American farmer needed help so much
as he needs it this year. There arc
said to be hundreds of thousands of
idle men in the United States. All of
them could secure employment on the
farms employment affording food ,
shelter and living wages. There are
consequences awaiting us. The result
of all this will be the bringing about
of European conditions. Many of our
working people to-day can not pay the
prices current for meats. If we do not
desire to have this condition of affairs
go to greater extremes , steps should be
taken to help the farmers secure a
portion of the immigration that pours
in upon our shores. Whatever may 'be '
the temporary effect of high prices for
foodstuffs upon the prosperity of the
farmer , the deprivations of one class of
our population is the misfortune of all.
High prices for meats and grains are
not beneficial to the farmers of the
Country , if the farmers can not employ
the help that is requisite for the
growth of grains and the production of
fueats. And that is the case MOW with
.lie farmers in a great many States of
the Union. The United States has made
remarkable growth as a manufacturing
Cation because material is cheaper and
better here than in any other country
of the world. Our farmers are making
* lie most energetic efforts to produce ,
rhey have the , best machinery the world
of agriculture knows. They themselves
vork and their families work. But the
demand is greater than they can sup-
The world has its "granaries" and its
vattle plains ; but the United States is
not a part of that world. Its granaries
vnd its plains are its own ; when they
fail , there are no others to which to
turn. This farmer giant last year was
worth to the nation $ T 0.000,000 during
every day of the crop growing season.
In the single year he produced mate
rial amounting in value to $7,412.000-
000. It meant that he had saved the
country from a disaster far more grave
than the embarrassments of the fall
and winter managed to produce. The
balance of trade in farm products for
last year was $444,000.000 in favor of
this country which meant that nearly
half a billion dollars in cash was added
to the riches of the nation. In all otlier
products , the trade of 11)07 produced a
balance in our , favor of only ? 2.00,000.
Practically unaided last year , the farm
er giant fed the United States and sent
abroad products that brought home $1.-

The Hen arid Her Xc.st.
Many claim that the nest should b < >

should have their nests on the moist
ground are unsupported by facts. What
is required for the hen in winter is a
snug , warm location , while in summer
she should have a ccol place , says the
The best material for a nest is dry
earth on the bottom , with chopped hay
over the earth. Then dust the nest ,
hen and eggs with a good insect povrCc * ,
and put a wmll quantity of tobacco re
fuse in the nest.
Should an egg be Broken , or the nest
become foul , clean it thoroughly. The
broken egg will cause lice quicker than
anything else. But 'first see that the
hen has no lice , then give her good
egi's , and she will 'bring off a brood
if she has u warm and comfortable
The nest should be made movable , so
that it can be taken outside for clean
ing , and should never be placed where
any of the fowls can roost upon it , or
cause it to become filthy. It should
never be so lii h as to compel effort to
reach it. The large breeds will prefer
to lay on the ground rather than at
tempt to reach a high nest , even when
a footway is provided. Some hens
learn to lly over a fence by first learn
ing to reach a high nest.
( Never have the nest so constructed
that tiie hsn must jump down into it ,
as broken eggs will be the consequence.
Rather place the entrance so as to pre-
mit her to walk in upon the eggs.
Grn < le Stallion ; ; .
Wisconsin horse breeding is said to
be in a deplorable condition. Prof.
A. S. Alexander of Wisconsin Col
lege of Agrh ; ! ture , publishes statis
tics of the department of horse breed
ing in the University of Wisconsin
College of Agriculture aid : lays bare
an astonishing and deplorable condi
tion of affairs in horse breeding in
that state , a knowledge of whicy
should lead to strenuous efforts toward
improvement , in a new bulletin of
the experiment station entitled "The
Grade Stallion Situation in Wiscon
The bulletin shows that , while grade
stallions are practically unused abroad
some 2,000 of them are employed for
breeding purposes in Wisconsin , with
a result that proper progress of the
horse breeding industry is prevent
ed. AIL impressed feature of the bul
letin is a map of the state showing
the distribution of pure bred and grade
bires. and another is the striking pho
tographs of grade and scrap stallions ,
demonstrating the nondescript type and
lack of quality of such horses.
The disadvantages of "using grade
stallions are forcibly explained , and
practical suggestions are made as to
the measures necessary for the eventual
elimination of such undesirable sires.
The bulletin closes with a statement of
the hitherto unpublished fact that 52
per cent of the seventy-live agricultural
fairs of the state either encourage
grade and scrub stallions by classes and
premiums , or have entry rules so lax
that such horses are not properly ex
cluded. Yet all of these fairs are an
nually subsidized by the state according
to law , bonus money to the amount of
$ n.020.SO : having in 100G been paid to
the fairs by orfler of the secretary of
state. Dr. Alexander contends that no
bonus is deserved or should be paid to
any fair encouraging grade animals.
Spray Will Kill Codling Sloth.
Death and final extermination for
the codling moth ! Joy and increased
profits for the apple growers of Colorado
rado and the orchard men of the
world ! The devastating reign of this
unconquerable pest is nearly at an end ,
thanks to Clarence C. Gillette , professor
ser of zoology and entomology at the
Colorado Agricultural College , Fort
For more than eighteen years Pro
fessor Gillette has devoted much time
and energy to perfecting a spray
which would successfully kill off the
codling moth , and at last success has
crowned his efforts. His discovery of
a method to annihilate the codling
moth is not exactly of recent date ,
but year by year he has improved upon
his solution for an effective spray , and
recent experiments have proved his
Up to within the last fifteen years
the dread codling moth has destroyed
annually from 50 to 75 per cent of
the yield of Colorado apple orchards ,
and its devastations have been pro
portionately great throughout the en
tire world. For the codling moth is
not a native of this State. It was im
ported . /here years ago , just as were
other fruit parasites and plant lice ,
.uul probably had its origin in Asia.
To estimate the damage the codling
moth has done in dollars and cents to
the apple orchards of Colorado vrjrh-
in a quarter century reaches up ii.to
the millions ; but in the future this
, vill lie saved.
When he first advanced the theory
. > f spraying just after the blossom fell ,
Professor Gillette advocated the use
of a mixture c imposed of p-tris green
nnd london pr.mj. That brought cer
tain good re * . . .Is , but In many in
stances the ars.T.ic killed the foliage.
The spray he a.lvocates now is arse-
uate of lead. It is almost entirely In
dissoluble. A person could hold enough
of it to cause der.tti in the mouth all
day without beig able to dissolve
enough to do any harm.
But if it were eaten an.l swallowed *
the gastric juices of the stomach
wouki dissolve It , and death would fol
low. This is how it l:51J.s the codling
moth. It is sticky and will adhere to
the tree all year , and no amount of
rain or mui ture ran interfere with its
eHiciency. but let Uic tuotii nibble os
