An ounce of pre vention will do the work of many fly traps and mosquito bars," de clares Dr. J. Allen Patton, of New ark. N. J. "Preventive work In the spring will wipe out the breeding places," says Dr. Patton, who Is the medical director of the Prudential Insur ance Company," and will, to a large extent, eliminate these men acos to the public health." The house fly feeds and breeds on every kind of filth, and Is a remarkably efficient carrier of dis ease.' It specializes In typhoid, dysontery, Asiatic cholera and other diseases, Including tubercul osis. Swatting the fly is an accept able means of annihilating the full grown pest, but not so effective In ahe end as preventive measures. For tt la much easier to clear away the potential breeding place for a million flies than It Is to swat or catch that million after they have grown to a lively maturity. Filling In and draining are the two most effective means of elimin ating mosquito hatcheries. Where those are not practicable the per iodic use of coal oil to form a film' on the surface of the water Is ad visable. ' Community effort Is necessary In any campaign against the house fly or mosquito. It Is not sufficient that your own stable and garbage rui 11 am nnt flv Incubators, and that you have no stagnant water la your yard to hatch mosquitoes. xour neignoors aiso mum see uiai their yards are In condition, else your own efforts will have been wasted and they will share with you their mosquitoes and flies. Buying Power of the Farmer moo ' ' 1 MMB9 no i( "; -4 74- 1 y -1 Vfl KM-raue cKicxtTuiMi. rouNDanon ' 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ' 1 ' ' 1 1 ' 1 1 1 1 ' 1 1 ' The purchasing power of farm eoiiiiuinlitics continues to rise. I.aiest esti mates show an average of 4.8 points lii-lier for tl' llrst eleven months of this year than during the corresponding months of 1!.",. according to a report of the Sears-Itoehiick Agricultural rinnilatiin. Iiasi'il en the new index numbers of farm prices prepared by the United Stalls Department of Agriculture. Kami prices show a combined value of :u on November 1, 1024, as com pared with 10(1 In 1913. This combined Index number Includes 30 farm com modities which represent more than '.Ml per cent of the value of products sold by farms, the Foundation points out. Using August. 1!K)!. to July. 1914, us 100, the purchasing power of these products stood at 87 on November 1 of this year. In I91S the purchasing power was 100. decreasing to 69 In 1921. In 1922 lt'rose to 74 and by 1928 the average stood at 78. During the first eleven months of this year the purchasing power of farm commodities averaged 82.3 as compared with 77..r In the same period a year ago. Advances In grain, which averages ubout 22 per cent of the total value of farm products sold, and In price of meat animals, which averages 27 per cent, have been the largest factors In the Increase of the farmer's purchasing power since 1921. The grain farmer received during the early part of this year prices about 10 per cent above the pre-war five-year average. This bad risen to 30 per cent Increase by July. At the same time the general price level of commodities the farmer has to buy ranges 30 to 80 per cent above th 1913 level. Horse Markets Cciriiin Each That club leadership must tie Increased properly to nam Hie luiys mid flrlg of th nation who decide to remain on farms and become the bulwark of American' agriculture la shown In a survey of the club work of the Junior farmers Just completed by Benjamin H. Da r row. director of the boys' and girls" club work of the Sears-Roebuck Agricultural Foundation. , According to the report or the Foundation, based on a count by the De partment of Agriculture, 722,40? jij,icts were begun In 1923 by 459.074 boys and girls, a number which Is lew than 6 per cent of the farm youth of the na tion of dub age. Of these pro:u 429.746 were completed by 249.416 club members. Girls completing their ortc outnumber the boys three to two, there being 150,194 girls and 99,222 boys The report also Indicates that 55.6 per cent of the enrolled flrls finished their projects, while only 62.9 per cent of the boys completed theirs. The high point reached In 1918. as shown by the accompanying chart, was due to the expansion of club work In. connection with the slogan of the day: "Food will win the war." After the crisis was over there was retrenchment and club work suffered. . "Many of the 8,000,000 boys and girls engaged In club work hope to lenve the farm," said Darrow, "but 80 per cent of them will remain In the coun.ry. experience has shown. All who stay on the fiirin should have the benefit uf the Inspiration and training cluli work ii.for.ls. If are to provide this for the Junior farmers of the nation, we must inp;.l!j increase tjjie number of conn tf club leaders.'' M ' Jt ' ' ' ' I ' ' ' ' I 1 " MLnJw.CWOAfi. Horse markets are coming back. As both farm and city are demanding more and better horses, better prices .nay ultimately result, according to the Sears rtoehuck Agricultural Foundation based on a study of the trend In the buylnr power of furm horses during the past 57 years. Low prices probably will continue to discourage horse and mule produc tion and cause a falling off In the equine population until average prices return, the foundation believes. But already horse breeding operations have begun to expand In the districts possessing the kind of foundation stock capable of producing the sort of bones the market wants. Attractive prices are now being paid for all good, big sound shapely drafters coming to market and good horses t the wagon type weighing 1,400 to 1.800 pounds. Prices have ad vanced from the extreme depression of two years ago. How soon the turning point will be reached on the rank and file of horses Is uncertain. Previous cycles of horse and mule prices as shown bv the ac companying chart have varied greatly In length. The first lasted eleven years from depression to depression, the second eighteen years and the present cycle Is already twenty-seven years. It seems logical to believe that un upward turn In prices which win last for a decade or longer will start before long and that good horses and mules produced from matlngs In the nest few years will get the benefit ef that advance by the time they reach marketable age. Good horse are the exception on farms today. It la unthinkable lliat good farmers will he content with plugs for long.
