How our hearts would heave and

While we find many fine birds in

One of the most important features

Plans to Utilize the Idle Lands.
Idle lands, like idle people, are
aeldom benefited by their idleness.
At least, it is certain that land may
be improved faster by growing some
useful crop every year than by lying
idle part, or all of the time. More
over, we have thousands of acres that,
because -of insufficient drainage or
lack of fertility, are not yielding
profitable crops, and thousands , of
other acres yielding absolutely noth
ing. These lands represent an invest
ment and must pay taxes, therefore
by yielding nothing they consume
some of the profits of the cultivated
This land should bring Its owner
some revenue. That which will yield
a fair profit in the growth of timber
should be given sufficient attention
and protection from fires to enable us
to profit -on our investment. There
are thousands of acres of fertile land
that have been turned out and al-
I lowed to grow up to brush and weeds
that with a little attention could be
made to produce good profits in the
growth of grasses for pasture or hay.
These lands are along the creeks and
rivers and have not paid in cultivated
crops because of overflows or lack of
drainage. They would, however, pro
duce good grass and save us from buy- j
ing forage or from sending to the
North for hay. Let us plan to utilize
them. We need the forage or grazing
which they will produce.
Again there are large areas of up-!

That a good dose of calomel is as
good, for a sick tree as for a sick
man is the curious doctrine worked
out by William Morrison, station
agent at Lincoln, Del., who claims
practical results to prove his asser
tion. Morrison has a large plum trre in
front of his house, which is supposed
to be about twenty-five years eld.
For years the tree has borne but few
plums, never over one or two quarts.
A faithful believer in calomel for the
would yield a handsome profit on
their value and the expense of put
ting them in condition for grazing cat
tle and other live stock. Not only is
this so, but in a few years if the brush
and briers are kept down they will be
in condition to again yield profitable
cultivated crops. National Poultry
Mrs. R. S. C, Corkville, Ga. 1
have planted a patch of about one
half acre in alfalfa, and want to know
if I must pasture it any the first year;
or how many times I must mow it,
and at what time. If I am successful
with it this year, hope to plant five or
6ix acres of fine river bottoms an
other year. Any information as to
the cultivation of this plant will be
Answer You certainly should not
pasture your alfalfa the first year
if ever. It is a plant that does not
stand pasturing the "best in the
world," and it will yield a great deal
more if cut and fed, or made into
hay, than if pastured. It should be
cut as soon as it commerces to bloom
and as often as that stage is reached
in succession. The soil for alfalfa
should be very rich and clean of weed
seeds. Lime is an important con
stituent of the soil, and if not a strong
lime soil it should have a dressing of
five to ten buckets or more of air
slaked lime per acre every two or
.three years. In February of each
year it is advisable to apply 600 to
800 pounds of 10 4 acid and potash
per acre and run over the surface
crosswise and diagonally two or three
times with a cutaway harrow, fol
lowed, if convenient, by a smoothing'
harrow. This tends to destroy weeds
and grass and splits the crowns of
many of the plants, increasing .their
vigor. Weeds are the great pest of
an alfalfa field, arid dodder ("love
vine") is bad also. In buying seed
one should be careful to get such as
are guaranteed to contain no seeds
of dodder. R. J. Redding, in Atlanta
The Tick Problem.
The tick problem has deterrec
many in the past undertaking to in
troduce improved sires, because m6st
of them have to be bought north of
the quarantine line. We would, by
all means, advocate tick eradication,
though in some instances the farmers
are not ready to take up this impor
tant phase of the work. The next
best thing is to immunize the suscep
tible animals against tick fever before
they are taken to the farms. This
can readily be done, and statistics
show that where the work is properly
done between eight and nine per cent,
of the cattle so treated are affected
when ticks get on them, whereas
more than fifty per cent, of them will
be killed by the ticks if this precau
tion Is not taken. . Through the de
partment of veterinary medicine the
State College of Agriculture is in a
position to render this service to the
people of the State and the only
charge will be the feed bill during the
time the treatment is given.
What is true In regard to cattle
breeding would be equally applicable
to horse breeding. As stated above,
the college Is in a position to render
all assistance necessary in organizing
clubs, purchasing the sires and estab
lishing this work in any section of the
State where a desire for this assist
ance is expressed. We have already
started work of similar, character in
many places, and are anxious to pros
ecute it as rapidly as possible and get
these breeders', clubs organized in
every section of the State for all
classes of live stock. Milton P. Jar-

It Pays to Caponize.
A capon bear3 the same relation to
a rooster as a steer to a bull, and as
bull meat is not equal to steer meat,
so are roosters not equal to capons.
When cockerels become capons they
cease to grow combs and wattles, do
not crow and fight, grow much faster
and finer flesh and bring more money
than ordinary chickens.
If a cock weighs ten pounds, a ca
pon will weigh fifteen, and bring three
to four time3 the price, $125 often be
ing paid for 100 capons. '
It certainly pays to caponize sur
plus cockerels. A set of tools, with
full instructions for using, costs $2.50
and only ordinary skill is required.
For caponizing, cockerels must be
less than six weeks old and weigh a
pound or more.
Exercise For Chicks.
Exercise is absolutely , necessar
with brooder chicks, or else bowel
trouble and cases of indigestion will
surely result. Use plenty of short,

and very fine cracked corn. Farm-

try his favorite remedy on the tree,
and last fall bored a hole in the tree
and into this hole inserted a specn-

ged the hole up tight.
The result has been wonderful, for

From the Pulpit.
The unique manner in which a por
tion of a Missouri county obtained
good roads will be of especial interest
In Georgia, with sentiment for that
Issue at floodtide.
It is not often that the aid of the
pulpit is invoked in the cause of
highway improvement, but that agen
cy ha3 set Jefferson Township, in No
daway County, to unusual activity,
according to the Kansas City Star.
For several years Rev. Father F. P.
Placid, pastor of the Catholic church
at the Benedictine monastery, near
Conception, Mo., preached to his peo
ple that the building of good ronds
constituted not only a civic, but a
He pointed out in a series cf ser
mons that bad or impassable thor
oughfares caused farmers to stay at
home on Sundays, which militated
strongly against the uniform observ
ance of their religious duties.
He did not, however, confine his
efforts to oral argument. And this is
how our contemporary describes the
manner In which the monastery with
which he was affiliated set the near
by farmers a practical object lesson:
"The monastery owns a section of
fine land and several fine draft horses.
The fathers didn't purpose to have
I their horses struggle along bad roads
, every time they desired to drive to
town or to market In the rainy sea
son, or just after a rain in any sea
son. The fathers tsgan by grading
the road from the monastery, Old
Conception, to Conception, a distance
of three mile3. Then they chained
two pieces of railroad iron together,
and after a rain they dragged the
road several times. That was ssvcral
year3 ago. They have kept it up con
sistently ever since. The result is a
road as smooth as a boulevard. There
have been heavy rains in that ssction
for a week; the creeks and branches
are out of their banks and it is not
possible for a horse to wade through
the mud In some sections of that
county or township. It is different
with the three miles of road leading
from the monastery, to Conception.
The week's rain, the heaviest of the
year, has had little effect on the road,
and it Is possible for a team of horses
pulling a loaded wagon to trot along
this superior thoroughfare."
Such initiative on part of the mon
astery had its logical effect upon the
landowners of the surrounding terri
tory. The roads are now dragged on an
average of ten times a year, at a tri
fling expense after the first operation.
The deadly rut has disappeared and
from year's end to year's end the
highways are passable to heavy loads
hauled by one or two mules. The
farmers view the movement as one of
the best investments in their, exper
ience and the fever has spread to
other sections of the county.
Substantially, the interest of the
clergy of Georgia in good roads is
equal to that of the clergy of Missouri.
Already many preachers of various
denominations in this State have spo
ken a good word for the crusade that
has so wonderfully Inspired the in
dustry of all classes of Georgians.
Persistent agitation in this direction
would not only exert a salutary influ
ence on religious phases of commu
nity life; it would, as well, be reflect
ed in commercial and industrial as
pects. And the preachers are citizens a?
