How They Are Kept in Good Condi
tion in Sections of Missouri.
There are three tools that are being
used in Missouri in keening the dirt
roads ia good conditiou, the grader,
the drag and the harrow, writes a cor
respondent of the Farmers' Voice. The
grader, costing from $200 to $500, is
used in rollins: uu the roada. Thi ; la

are gvaaed in the fall they get
terribly cut up by the travel after
the rains in the late fall and some
rimes become almost impassable. To
say the least, they are miserably
rough. Vi'hen graded in th spring the
roads get bad enough in the winter
and spring, and it is only of late
year3 that farmers have learnl the
use of the drag and harrow in putting
them in good condition again.
The road drag is easily constructed
by means of two timbers of split logs
from eight to ten feet in length and
about the size of heavy fence posts.
They may be fastened together with
oak cross pieces or by round spokes
extending from the holes in one piece
to those in the other. Good chains
can be fastened to the pieces to which
the double tree can be attached. If
the drag is extra heavy, two teams
may be used by hitching one at each
e:id. When dragging the road one
team should be kept a little ahead of
the other, so as to pull the dirt toward
the middle of the road. It is a good
idea to have a sharp cutting blade o:
si eel on the underside of the front
timber If this extends about half an
inch below the edge of the timber and
slants forward it will help wonder
fully in cutting off the rough points in
The drag, though simple, is a great
invention. It is a power for leveling
the roads in winter just after a dry
f veeze or in the early spring when the
roads begin to dry. By running the
drag over the road, ruts and horse
tracks will be easily filled. If they
contain water, it will run out and
away, then the road3 will soon be in
The common field harrow, while not

quently for leveling roads. Best re
sults are obtained by using the harrow
v hen the roads are rough, but dry. It
acts as a leveler, but not as a grader,
by raking off the clods and bumps,
pulverizing them and filling the de
pressions. The neighbors in a community, with
the use of the drag and harrow, have
no trouble keeping the roads about
their farms in very good condition
during most of the year. Of course
ihere are times in rainy seasons when
the roads must be let alone.
It Is Easy to Load, and Easy from
Which to Dump Load.
Here Is a sled that will work either
side up, and from either end. It is
handy for hauling stones or other
heavy material, as it can be over
turned and the load left where de
sired. If necessary, it can be drawn
from either end, and will save a lot of
extra lifting in unloading the material.
DO HAULING NOW.
Get Such Work Out of the Way Before
Ground Gets in Bad Shape.
With the old plan of managing the
farm there was always much hauling
to do iu the winter and in all kinds
of weather. I have learned one thing
about hauling, says a writer in Farm
and Home, and that is it pays to do
it when the ground is solid.
There is much feeding to be done
during the winter. Generally the hay
is stacked in the field at harvest time
and hauled to the feed racks as need
ed. I have learned to haul and stack
in the rack at harvest time. This
takes a little longer, but saves time
in the end and extra hauling.
I do my hauling, as far as possible,
when I have firm footing for the
horses. Trying to haul loads when
the ground is soft has made more
balky horses than any other cause. I
believe, at any rate, this is a good
time to bring out the balk in them if
there is any. If you want to save
horses, do the hauling when they can
do it easiest and it will be easiest for
you at the same time.
Easily Made Vinegar.
We make If- to 12 gallons fine ap
pie vinegar every year. As soon as
apples come, we take the parings anri
put tbem in a six-gallon stone jar ar.d
tamp them with a potato masher till
they are pretty well bruised, then
pour water over them till covered.
We continue to put the parings in till
they have been in a week or more,
then we strain out the parings and
pour the cider into a keg and repeat
the operation till one keg is full. We
then lay an old piece of cotton cloth
over the bung and let nature do the
rest. In two months we have a keg of
the finest kind of vinegar.
First-Class Job Work done at this
Judgment in the Work Is an Essential
No two shrubs or varieties of shrubs
should be pruned in the same man
ner. One important object in prun
ing is to keep down the growth i.f
superfluous wood. Another is to kep
the shrub in such a shape that it wlil
be attractive. In old times it was
thought that pruning should be in
the direction of the artificial, and
shrubs of all varieties were trimmed
in the sane general manner.. The re
sult was a mass of shrubs all trimmed
in about the same general manner.
The artificial effect was not in ac
cordance with what is now considered
good -taste in landscape gardening,
and the natural tendency of the
shrubs Is r.ow considered. Every
shrub has its own habit of growth,
and this should be encouraged. It is
not desirable to have one variety of
shrubs look like another variety cf
entirely different nature of growth.
Shrubs should be pruned a little each
year rather than a great deal in any
one year. The cutting off of com
paratively large branches is as detri
mental to a shrub as the cutting off
of a big limb is to a tree. The prun
ing should be so given that the shrub
will become more graceful from year
to year. This means taste on the
part of the pruner. This is a limi
tation that cannot be escaped. If the
pruner has not that indefinite thing
we call good taste, his pruning work
will not be good, but for this fault
there is no remedy, unless it be the
securing of a pruner that has taste.
KEEP THE CELLAR COOL.
How to Manage When the Apples
Have Been Stored.
After the apples are in the cellar,
that place should be kept as cold as it
is possible to keep it without reducing
the temperature below the freez
ing point. With a little care the win
dows of the cellar can be so adjusted
as to let the cold air pour in during
all the night and then shut the cellar
and keep in the air during the day.
Even if the temperature outside of
the cellar is below freezing, the ad
justment of the cellar windows can be
such that the volume of inflowing
cold air can be only enough to keep
down the general temperature to be-
j low 40 degrees. This is low enough
for several varieties of apples. In
' fact, a few onitf soft varfotioc- ea
to keep better near 40 than near 30,
though the data on this point are not
The barrels in which the apples are
stored should be headed and kept in
a dry part of the cellar. Many farm
ers leave their barrels of apples un
headed, with the result that the air
is constantly drawing the moisture
out of the apples. This is now recog
nized as detrimental to the long keep
ing of the apples.
PENETRATION OF ROOTS.
Depth to Which Roots of a Peach Tree
Were Found to Have Gone.
This illustration shows the depth
to which the roots of peach trees will
sometimes go in search of water.
TK number: represent
This design was made at the Arizona
station, where the roots of a peach
tree were followed to the depths in
dicated. It also shows that a root
system may be much larger than the
tree supported by the roots.
Orchards should be fertilized liber
ally in order to keep up the fertility of
the soil. Mineral as well as vegetable
fertilization is necessary because ca
crop of apples removes much more
potash from the soil than does wheat.
It requires large quantities of both
vegetable and mineral matters to pro
duce trees. Unleached wood ashes are
excellent and if potash is used in the
muriate form from 200 to 300 pounds
to the acre should be sown broadcast
among the trees.
Pull Out the Stumps.
To get rid of large stumps get a
straight tree 25 to 30 feet long and 12
to 18 inches throv.gh at the butt. Get
a strong chain, the stronger the bet
tor. Attach a good yoke of cattle to
the small end of the lever and draw
it to the stump. Pass your big chain
around a large root and the lever at
the same time about three feet from
the butt. Fasten the chain tightly
and start the team, driving in a cir
cle. See how easily the stump will
twist out. A small stump will come
out whole, but large ones will usually
split in two or three pieces. These
can be piled and burned after d; y
ing a short time.
Don't break your New Year resolutions.
STORING SWEET POTATOES.
A Suitable Building and Good Care
Are Requisite to Success.
If possible dig the potatoes on a
sunshiny day. Leave them in the
windrow till afternoon, then remove
them to the dry house and place them

that they do not teach on the rack.

the potatoes touch. They always go
through a sweat, and will soon decay
if they touch each other.

boxes or bins. Put in a layer of
shavings, then a layer of potatoes so
they will not touch, then enough shav

til you have packed them all. Then
remove to a place r.ecure from frost.
If you have a dry cellar they can
be placed in it. The essential thing
in keeping sweet potatoes is dryness.
If you wish to keep just a few you
can dry them and wrap them in pa

Apples irons ou'tlvated Orchards
Bring Best Price.
It is claimed by seme that apples
from uncultivated orchards are more
highly colored, havft a , high flavor, are
firmer and keep betier.
On the other hand, these apples are
usually smaller, and statistics recent
ly compiled by the Cornell university
show that the apples from cultivated
orchards sold for a slightly higher
price per bushel duriug the past five
years than did those from the or
chards that were not cultivated. That
is to say, the extra bizp. of the ppples
from the cultivated orchards more
than compensated for whatever differ
ence in color, flavor or firmness there
may have been.
In the adoption of the box as a ship
ping package, Pacific coast apple
growers are leading other parts of the
country and those growers obtain
good prices for their fruit. .j,

not removed, the "left overs" of slugs,

It is usually a safe plan to beware
of the traveling orchard doctor who
offers for sale farm and county
"rights" to make and use his "killem

After Hardy Orange Tree,

States department of agriculture with
a view to creating an orange tree that
will withstand cold weather and thrive

If the experiment proves to be suc

in parts of Missouri, Kansas, Illinois,
Indiana, Kentucky and Virgiuia. The
plan is to cross the citrus tree of the
south, which produces the table or

Cultivation of Garden.
Few gardeners fully realize the im
portance of cultivation in connection
with garden crops. Cultivation should
never cease while crops are develop
ing. The general feeling in this re
gard is that it is too much work.
Planting that is properly done will
permit of the cultivation being done
with horse power, thus facilitating the
work of cultivation. Instruments suit
able for small vegetable cultivation
can be purchased to be worked with
horse power, and effective cultivation
will bring ample returns for all time
spent at it and all work done.
Spray for Scale.
In order to get rid of the San Jose
scale it is well to spray both in the fall
and in the spring. Where the scale Is
bad they are so encrusted on the
branches as to be four or live deep,
consequently only the tops receive the
benefit of the spray. It is, therefore,
advisable to give a second spraying.
In the fall the scale are loss resistant
than in the spring. ,

tl c atrrr-K hi is coming to be a live
i proposition as a farmer's conveyance
for general road woik where extreme
weight-carrying power does not enter
into the problem, declares Prairie
Farmer. Automobiles, for instance,
are seemingly being put to various
uses by farmers on the coast. After
discussing the usefulness of the motor
tar, the Pacific Rural Press sums up
the probable expense as follows:
"The expense of upkeep in some
cars has been reduced until to-day a
man can operate a car, spending less
for oil and gasoline than the cost of
feeding a horse. The car is a matter
of expense only when in actual opera
tion, and while in operation its
road capacity is at least four
times that of a horse-driven vehicle.
As for repairs, if the car is given
reasonable care and attention, they
should be little in excess of the cost,
of shoeing and repairs on harness, etc.
tn point of operating knowledge, even
where this is not simple enough, the
farmer has a great advantage, as he is
of necessity more of a mechanic than
ihe city man."
Few reasonable persons will look
forward to the time of seeing the au
tomobile drive the farm horse out of
business, but there is a strong possi
bility that the motor car will ultimate
ly share a portion cf the road work
of the farm horse.

2. Obtaining such a road surface

money and labor in comparison with
the money and labor required for oth

WHEAT BRAN FOR COWS.
Character of the Feed from Different
Mills Varies Considerably.
Letters received at the station In
dicate that in some parts of Michigan
a prejudice exists against roller proc
ess wheat bran, says Prof. Smith of
the Michigan station. Some farm
ers prefer finely ground bran, c.tl.t.ra
are prejudiced in fa;v,r ut . i
samples. The p" d-n- -r ..

as a senaratp tiv-r.mii.i t
some light on the relation of the com
position of bran to Its physical ap
pearance, 14 samples were ana
lyzed, some of them from roller mills,
some from burr stone mills, some
from mills of large capacity and oth
ers from smaller establishments. The
per cent, of protein varied from 14.32
per cent, in the bvan of a roller proc
ess mill with an nnual output of
1,200 tons to ID per cent, iu first
grade roller process brans from one of
the immense mills in Minneapolis. Lit
tle variation was found In the com
position of extremely coarse bran and
the finer articles. The chemist says
on this topic: "The two extremes,
the very coarse and the very fine, are
of much the same composition, while
neither shows the best sample so far
as feeding properties are concerned.
The medium grades generally show
a better analysis than cither of the
extremes. Theoretically the bran pro
duced by the roller process should be
more valuable than that produced by
burr stones, as in one the germ, which
is rich in fat, is separated out with the
flour, and in the other this part goes
into the bran. The roller process
brans are all perceptibly higher in
protein than are those of the burr
stone process. It is not so much
the amount of starch present in the
bran, as the amount of protein and fat
that Is of consideration to the feeder.
The end for which the millers are
constantly working in the milling pro
cess, the most complete separation of
the starch possible and the needs of
the consumer of the bran, a food rich
in protein and fat, are identical. The
new milling process, instead of supply
ing the feeder with an inferior grade
of feeding stuffs, furnishes him with
one much superior to that supplied by
the old process."
CONCRETE ICE HOUSES.
Structure Which Will Prove Economl.
j cal Tor 'Dairy Farm.
On dairy farms where a permanent
ice house is desired, a concrete struc
ture will prove economical. The first
cost is slightly greater than where
wood is used, but the ability of the
concrete to stand constant dampness
on the inside makes it more desirable.
As shown In the sketch taken from

have an opening extending from sur
face of the outside ground almost
to the gable, which will allow ice to

A small window for ventilation
should be placed at the lop of each
gable. The walls of this house may
be constructed double by inserting a
mold between the forms when the con
crete ls poured. Two three-inch walls
with a two-inch air space will serve
best. The roof may also be made of
concrete by laying forms for rafters
and reinforcing it with light iron
DAIRYING IN WINTER.
Good Barn. Good Feed and .Fresh
Water Necessary to Success.
. Calves dropped in September and
October are most desirable because
they thrive better at the start and can
quickly be converted into veal at a
time when "baby meat" is at the high
est price. Another advantage ls the
cow will go dry at a time of the year
when flies are bad and when the
weather is warmest. To make winter
dairying a success it is necessary that
the cows have a comfortable barn and
plenty of good feed and fresh water.
In the winter the farmer or dairyman
can give the cows more attention than
during the summer months, says the
Jonrnal of Agriculture, and In spare
time improvements may be made in
the stables and outhouses. The fall
cow can start into the winter in good
condition and with proper attention
can be kept in shape all winter. Cows
that milk heavily should be fed freely
from the silo. It will be found that if
calves are kept for breeding the win
ter calf will do better than the one
born in the heat of summer when flies
are bad and grass is short. In the
summer raise plenty of feed of all
kinds for winter and when the cows
finally are placed in winter quarters
make them comfortable and they will
yield milk in the exact proportion in
which they are housed and fed. Calves
may be given skim milk with grain
