Percentages Conditions tand Prospects of Crops and kH Livestock SUMMARYj L This is the first report for the year 1910 An extremely cold and severe winter has been passed through and kas affected both stock and crops The month of March has been the warmest on record with but one shower of rain whichwas not general throughout the State which has afforded the farmers splendid opportunities for early plowing and spring work but it has also had a very bad effect on the wheat crop Wheat is not looking good having been injured badly by sleet during Jan uary and February and the unusually hot and dry weather of March makes the outlook very poor at this time and unless there is some rain soon there will not be more than 50 per cent of an average crop in the State It seems that the early sown wheat has gone through the winter better than the late sowingLast year in our April Crop report the percentage of acreage for the State was 87 and the percentagejof condition was 84 While this dear the percent age of acreage is 98 and the percent age of condition is 94 While the fol lowing extracts in almost every case show that some of it is being plowed up thus reducing the acreage very ma terially OATS ofaoats sown than usual and only needs rain to cause germination and good prospects for a good crop A number LI f reports show that some wheat fields have been plowed PEACHES up and sown in oats Many jeports show that in many parts of the State that the peaches 1 have been killed OTHER FRUITS There is much uncertainty about the small fruits and other fruit crops and barring freezes during April prospects fora full crop of fruit are fairly good at this time CLOVER AND GRASSES A great deal of the young clover has been killed or badly injured while al sike clover looks fairly well Where there was much freezing during the winter the young grasses have been in jured and are Preparations for a very large tobac co crop have been made and more es pecially is this true with Burley tobac co Many counties that have raised little or none in the past are preparing to grow it especially the mountain counties and those bordering along the mountains are becoming interested in growing tobacco Last year the pros y pective acreage of Burley for the State was 88 per cent as against 105 per cent for this year and the average of plant beds sown in 1910 compared with April 1 1909 is 97 per cent In the dark tobacco district the prospective acreage for last year was 99 per cent for the State as against 103 per cent this year and the average of plant beds withIbeen aroused in the growing of corn throughout the State by the organiza tion of corn growing associations and corn clubs and the distribution of pure seed corn and bulletins on same The acreage is being increased and much care is being given to the proper prepa ration of the ground The prospective acreage last year at this time was 99 per cent for the State and this year it is 103 per cent and the average of the number of acres ploughed for corn April 1 1910 as compared with April 1 1909 is 109 per cent LIVESTOCK All kinds of live stock are scarce and high and the numbers of hogs and brood sows are less than they have been for at least five years The number of brood sows showa decrease of 38 per cent since April 1 1909 and there are few litters of pigs There is much com plaint of high prices of pork and the above figures show conclusively the reason of same I will advise the farm ers of Kentucky as the prevailing high prices of hogs that it is my opinion that by a very strong effort on the part f the farmers to raise more and better hogs that it will take at least two years tn produce a sufficient number to lower e present prices and supply the de JI1and at the same time Nevertheless J favor profitable prices for all farm products s SHEEPI ea J There is an increase pf one per cent num ber of sheep over last Tear tithenupiber of HORSES harees was 94 per April I 1909u compared with 4 April

number of mules April 1 1909as compared with April 1 1908 was 95 per cents while they show an average of 86 per cent April 1 1910 Prices ranging from 7000 for one year old and under to 14000 for twoyearolds and over POTATOES The prospective acreage of potatoes April 1 1909 was 93 per cent while the prospective acreage this year is 98 percent and 80 per centum of the acreage has been planted CATTLE There is a decrease of two percent um April 1 1910 as compared with April I 1909 The number of milch cows April 1 1910 as compared with April 1 1909 show a percentage of 88 an average price

printed in my old native country I now live In 2 Texas where I have made my home for six years I was born u in Wayne Co five miles north west of Monticello on April 8th C18f2 My father went from there it county 9 miles east of I dlumbfasoon after the war and Jived there until his death Be r fore his death I went to Russell county to live with my older h brother In August the 191874 fel was married Judge Collens ef pronounced the ceremony at his fold home 4 miles northwest of It Jamestown I came to Texas 6 t f years ago and met with the old Judge in Anna and had several rt conversations with him before his death The Judge was a fine old citizen I reflect back to illof my relatives and friends in Wayne Russell and Adair where I spent the blot m of my life I am glad that I can say so much for this country Texas is a fine farming country every j thing is looking well for a fine crop this year We have been r blest with a good rain and have corn that will do to plow by the time the ground will do to work Wheat and oats are looking fine also Alfalfa We have some storms in this country and cy clones one cyclone swept everything I had away but the good people of Texas made me whole again So we hope to never see another cyclone H A B Calhoun The poultry interest of the South was never so flourishing as at the present time but the pres ent is not one tithe of what it will be even in the near future 5Wehave one of the best poultry countries in the world and itsI latent possibilities must he de veloped to their fullest capacity We have the climate and all the other favorable conditions for making a grandly paying successI of the poultry business must not neglect our great op portunity In our mild climate especially in the lower South winter eggs ought to beafore gone conclusion and they are Instead of being supplied by the questionable product of cold stor age the great cities and even the country in the North will in the future get fresh eggs daily from the poultry farms of the Southern States Uncle Sams Cookbook Uncle Sam is about to issue a cookbook and the cookbook may be had for tfte asking from the f Department of Agriculture In t Sats investigation into the high cost of food it has discovered quite generally that the cheaper cuts of meat are more difficult to kook properly than are highi priced steaks and cuts and tha this difficulty is due to a lack of knowledge by the housewife o- the cook or how to make th meat appetizing and palatable V Therefore Secretary Wilson de i termined some time ago to pro- videV the housekeepers o f this I knowledgeS r of how to cook meats and his fy department h a snow issued a i cookbook which will tell how to cook me economically and pala rftable The book is known as- Economic Use of Meats in theI Home and a copy will be

correct ideas about pruning as follows 1 Prune to modify the vigor of the tree giving it less top to support allowing the sap to flow into the remaining branches 2 Prune to produce larger fruit than could be produced if the vital forces of the tree were divided among a greater number of branches 3 Prune to give the trees desirable shape 4 Prune in summer to change the trees from wood bearing to fruitbearing 5 If the tree bears too much fruit prune heavily in winter so that the tendency will be to wood growth 6 Prune to remove surplus parts or injured parts or parts that interfere with each other 7 Prune to facilitate spray or harvesting tilltage en professoresays that Moses was great editor This will be a blow j to some of the New York publi shers who have been engaged an n effort to

that No Harm Will Come With Halleys Comet On May the 18th many of us- earth beings will witness a sight the like of which has never be fore been seen of men at least since men have kept a written history of events On that day beIa Of a suddent our earth swing ing through space at 65000 miles an hour will plung into the tail of Halleys comet close to the neck of it The tail will have been whipped against us at its own speed of 105000 miles an hour Thus this globe will dive through the luminous haze at a total speed of 170000 miles per hour 47 miles per second the earth entirely immersing herself in the celestial midst in less than three minutes yet so thick is the tail at point of performatjon 900000 milesthat we shall be nearly three hours and a half passing through What will happen No two scientists agree in detail They are however practically certain there will no harm done to any creature of the earth save the harm which fear does But the chances of it will be nothing but lightterrific but harmless or our sunlight during those 205 minutes will be filtered through the comets head or nucleus the head will be eclips ing the sun and the headwill have just come from a bath in the very flame of the sun This gaseous head 51 times as big as our earth and only 14000000 miles away a mere step corn pared with even the distance will be boiling fuming explod ing blasting in titanic convul wring water out of it so we may be soaked with deluges or rain during our comet bath There is a chance yet that we wont touch the tail at all The- Y r r Yt sions of heat after its recent experience And it is thought such a lens our sunlight must come filtered- for three hours and a half May 18thWe indeed have one sight previous experience with thetail of a comet On June the 3rd 11861we snipped through part of Tebbets comet tailIof lengthhair a scant 3000 miles thickYet for the experience of seeing hair severed the French astronomer Liais journed to Rio de Janiero and set up his instru mentThe moment came Suddenly Liais saw the sun turn into blood at midday Then there was a rapid plunge into lurid phos phorescent yellow and almost instantly the sky darkened to a copper green as if a tornado were approaching And next instant before the observer could realize it the sun shone serenely again the earths minute for passing through the 3000milethick hair was up and Liais packed his instruments and went home What effect the adventure will have upon the earth is disputed- If the comets tail is of gas at least the gas is much diluted Some observers fear the deadly cyanogen gas which if thick would stifle all breathing things at once Diluted such a gas might turn the whole world sick to its stomache for two or three hoursSome predict a display of elec trical phenomena tremendous but harmless as the aurora borealis Deslandres a French man says the tail is made up of cathode rays which touching our atmosphere would become Xraysof great inte sityrThe effect of Xrays upon air is to full observations yetcbeen taken final calcula tions may show that the tail will miss the earth by a few thou sand milesa microscopical dis tance in spacebut still enough so that we would pass the tail in blissful ignorance o fits nea- rxessEx i t
