able to give the French architect who journeyed from Paris many valuable pointers as to designing the new house and she will be able to select the furnishings etc with far greater ease and success

all the way from one thousand to one hundred thousand acres It was once profitable to farm vast areas in grain Although this valley is blessed with most aiiiindant water supplies irri gation is not generally employed There is little rainfall from May to elhluousi HOW GROW IN TilE UNDER moisture But the big farms are not- prosperous They are largely cult vated by tenants and are strangely devoid of features which make the true farm one of the most delightful homespots in the world The men on the land sell all they produce and buy nearly all they consume And so they pay tribute to others going and coming I have been visiting a farm in the Sacramento2 Valley which consists of one single acre of irrigated land and which makes a better home and larger net income for its owner than many of his neighbors enjoy on places of thousands of acres each The little farm is at Orland in Glen County and is the property of a man named Samuel Cleeks who has grown old and gray while tilling it for the past thirty years Mr Cleeks tells me that he has no difficulty whatever in making a comfortable living from this one acre of irrigated land Not only so but he is able to save an average of four hun dred dollars a year beside He has money to loan as well as fruit vege tables and poultry products to sell to those who are getting poorer every year in carrying on big farms without irrigation I was so curious to know how he could get such good results from so small an area that I asked him to give me a list of what the place contained Here it is ON A SINGLE ACRE Barn and Corral space ii x i5

much less a single acre would have been considered a dreamer or a greenhorn Now how ever all through the Southwest In great sections of California and Ari zona where the sun is warm the soil is deep and fertile and the water for irrigation ample little farms are making for their owners more money than many of the big ones Two three five and ten acre tracts closely and faithfully cultivated have

amount of Philippine pesos coined in the San Francisco mint and in January 1105 the schedule was doubled that is instead of one sailing a month there are now two The army prefers to do its own frei ht and passenger business on e Pacific for the following reasons Primarily private companies secur in contracts could not furnish the service desired without specially constructed vessels an expense which though demonstrated absolutely neces nary by experience they would not undertake owing to the uncertainty of the traffic Secondly the present service Is found more economical the cost of operation last year amounted to X750 too less than the lowest estimate presented by any of the private concerns bidding for the business Lastly the exigencies of the service which might at any moment

Agriculture that promise to be of Im mense value to the farmers of the country in furnishing them with a new supply of fertilizer at very much cheaper rates than has ever been pos sible before and at the same time emancipating this country from Ger many which has heretofore furnished almost our entire supply of potash fertilizer It is a lung and quite an interesting story and probably will mean a great deal to agriculture in this country The most remarkable part of it is too that the idea origin ated in the bureau of roads which nominally has nothing to do with fer summer when Dr Cushman of the roads office was working in the laboratory with very finely powdered rock the idea struck him as it has struck a good many other chemistsIthat it was a natural that this country with an unlimited supply of rock high in its percentage of potash should have to depend on other countries for its potash salts for there has never been any commercial deposits of the salts found in this coun try as it is in Germany lIt extracted some of the potash by electricity though it is by no means certain yet that this can he done on a paying commercial basis Tint then he decided that as ground rock was very cheap it might be worth while to try the experiment of letting the plants do their own extracting He tried the experiment on his own place upcountry and found that the powdered rock did actually act as a fertilizer though the potash it carried was so tied up that it took the chemistry of nature to extract it and feed it into the plant But the first trial prom ised well SUCCESSFUL CIIEEXIIOUSE EXPERIMENTS The work was then turned over to the burmu of plant industry and three similar plots of tobacco were = OLD planted in the greenhouse One of these was treated with the imported German fertilizer was left without any fertilizer at all and the third was fertilized with lively ground common granite The granite was high in potash but it had not been treated in any way and if the experl meut succeeded it simply meant that there was a big new field of home grown fertilizer open to the farmer When the crops of tobacco were cut the imported fertilizer had pro duced a crop of green leaf thatweighed lay pounds The powdered granite produced a crop of Jill pounds and the unfertilized crop was spotted and ran only about 120 pounds This crop was examined by the ex perts and so far as could be told the leaf was not only just as heavy but of just as good texture in the granite fertilized patch as in the patch on which the fertilizer had been used The crop is being dried now and it will take a long time before it is all fermented and properly cured so that it can be made up for smolc ing and tested in that way But that was a greenhouse experl ment and greenhouse work to fieldwork is about like laboratory experi ments to commercial ivorkj What succeeds under glass may or may not go out of doors But the department was so well pleased with the results that it has tried the new fertilizer on crops of tobacco up in Connecticut In Virginia Kentucky and Florida These crops are now under way and there is a great deal of interest felt in the success of the work out of doors The principal question seems to be whether there will be enough water in the natural rainfall to make time potash in the rock available for the plants During any tiling like a decently wet season there is lit tle question that there would be water in plenty But it is possible that for a very dry crop there will have to be as much as a tenth of im ported fertilizer added to the native rock A VAST SAVING The ground rock on the other hand can be produced for about 3 a ton and there is so much of it in the country that runs high in potash and is available for use that the supply could never be cornered It is true that the native fertilizer takes about two tons to give the same results as one ton of the soluble imported salts But this amounts to 0 for fertilizer against 00 or 5100 So the result is not bad Several mills are already being erected one in Maryland and one in New England for grinding rock for just this purpose and there are a number of other concerns that have

for the work ultimately will land is a question It will not be with Dr Cusman or the road office- A 49 FERTILIZER AND CAPONS ELLIOTT MITCHELL as it is not in their line of work And the department will get nothing out of it from the farmers but thanks for that forIt is what the department is there is a discovery which if it pans out is of immense importance to agriculture There are many crops such as tobacco and tomatoes whirl require excessive proportions of pot ash while all complete fertilizers con tain liberal percentages Potash one of the trinity which makes plan growth possible potash nitrogen and phosphorus Capons ami Canonizing By CHARLES J PILLING Capons arc aptly termed the finest chicken meat in the world for there is nothing growing feathers which is their superior if equal A capon is neither rooster nor Ilcnit is nothing else than a capon After removing the organs of reproduction from the cockerel its nature becomes entirely changed The birds take on a more rapid growth are more tune awkward in carriage and always exceedingly lazy they grow a very heavy and beautiful plumage the comb and wattles cease to grow the spurs do not develop as in the cockerel and being rust off by both rooster and hen the capon soon shows a fondness for the society of little chicks BEST TIME TO CAPONIZE Fowls hatched any time of the year make fine capons no ill results follow the operation at any time in the year The bird should be from two to three months old not over six months and weigh not less than a pound to a pound and a half The size is equally as important as the age April May Tame July August September and October are the months generally taken for caponizing for the reason that spring chickens arrive at the proper age and weight for the operation dur ing these months also because cock erels caponized then reach at thin proper age and weight for market dur v VIII NIXE MONTHS PLYMOUTH ROCK CAPONS another German ground finished probably ing the months of November Decem JUT January February March Apr and May at which times there is the greatest demand for them in the cities and highest prices secured PROFIT IX CAPONS Caponize the chicks and you have at once laid the foundation for a handsome profit in a short time to come Outside of the cardinal points of prof it the simplicity of the operation when proper instruments are used recommends itself to every one A boy ten years old can readily perform the operation and any one can soon become an expert To the poultry raiser it can be said that there is no source of profit bringing larger returns for the outlay than raising capons the profit in a great majority of cases being over 100 per cent The question of assured profit is an ll convincing argument in any line and preeminently so to the poul trymen whose losses are added to from various unlooked for sources DIRECTIONS FOR CAPONIZING From twentyfour to thirtyfive hours before performing the operation select such cockerels as you intend to caponize these should be from two to four months old confining them in a clean airy coop or room without food or water The best time to con fine them is at early morning as their long fast will then end about noon of the following day at which time the operation is performed Should the day be cloudy or wet do not caponize them but let the operation go until you have a bright and fair day It is necessary that you have all the light possible in the matter Now after slightly wetting the spot proceed to turn down the feathers from the upper part of the last two ribs and just in front of the thigh joint Pull the flesh on the side down toward the hip and when the operation is finished the cut between the ribs J rFPlltblGh SgtL MAKING THE INCISION will be entirely closed by the skin going back to its place PROPER INSTRUMENTS- It is a matter of importance to have proper instruments for caponizing and the more is read of the literary effu sions appearing in numerous paper- today touching caponizing instruments the more need there is to caution thP inexperienced operator While it not cruel to caponize it is inhuman to butcher or to cause unnecessary pain NOT A CRUEL OPERATION- A large number of persons hesitate In caponizing feeling it to be cruel to the bird To these the writer wishes to bring his experiences in this matter proving to the contrary This is a greatly mistake notion and the oper ofkinduess INSERTING TilE SPREADER were no other considerations or re turns The writer as has everyone else on a farm has seen coy kerels fly at one another time and time again tearing flesh and feathers with beak and cutting with spurs Before the combatants could be separated ther has been a disfigured comb perhaps a blinded eye antI a generally cut up crueltyAfter the bird are entirely changed Their disposition is quiet and peaceable habits mild and tending to a solitary life and perfectly contented wherever situated They no longer chase about the farm spoiling for u tight and run ning off flesh as fast as put on They no longer arouse the whole neighbor bytlleircontrary become models of good dis positions leading a quiet life that will surely luring large returns to the raiser An operation that does away with so much inborn evil can not be considered cruel Celery for the Home Garden The waning of summer acts as a gentle reminder to the home gardener that in order to have a crop of celery for winter use it is desirable to get the Augusthas MaytimetrnnsIIlnntingseed store Celery culture to be successful deeperthenot dried out as is the case where the tiny rootlets come close to the surface in a mad search for moisture Celery plants require that the roots be cool with plenty of water but not stagnant water It is considered advisable therefore before planting to prepare the ground thoroughly and deeplyHaving the ground in good work plnntillgis to make a sLiinch deep furrow filled in with three inches of fine compostThelevel with the surface with good soil mixed with manure Dwarf self is REMOVING THE ORGANS blanching celery may be selected for the home garden and this should he planted in rows two and a half feet apart and not closer than six inches in the row The tall sorts take up a good deal of room in the garden The best day for planting celery a dull one when the sun will not have a chance to burn the roots of the young plants It might be well to soak these before removing from the seedbed or box so that the roots will more quickly mingle with the soil in the new home Another good plan Is to trim off the tops say onethird and dip the roots in water As a result of this the plants will send out strong healthy roots before throwing energy into the tops Culled Shunts Bluff Railroad men are telling of a recent experience of Mr Shonts the

the Little Folks are Wearing this Summer BERTHA BROWNING Batiste of all descriptions is the material most in vogue for young girls dresses and childrens frocks of dressy order Taffetas are also used usually of a fancy type showing small checks or equally small broehe ef fects on a plain or changeable ground and in medium tints For ordinary wear there are pique linen and neutral fabrics fashioned into frocks of simplicity and trim style The dressy gowns for young girls are simple too but not without some de gree of elegance Many of the skirts have one or two flounces about the lower edge and these are often set on with deep bands of embroidery or lace Tucks and ruffles are much used while the knife plaitings of artiste are a much favored garniture ior frocks of dressy order A great simplicity pervades the linen pique and light woolen suits for girls These usually have a plain skirt trimmed only with bias folds of the material The jacket is a short narrow semifitted one with basques lengthGirlswear the corselet skirt nor are they suitable for but fully developed figures The Parisian girl attains the age of sixteen before she is considered sufficiently developed to wear such a style FOR THE TOTS For younger children from five to usedeexception of taffetas For these the skirt is usually completed by a blouse while tucks and very narrow frilling are time favorite trim eyelet A LITTLE TOT IN COOL SUMMER DRESS waistitlloutknotted at one side with short ends while long loops and ends finish the other side Tile ribbon used for this is not wide number 16 being tile usual choice The only silks used for children are tussah and occasionally foulard the latter plain and in ecru tint- TRIM COATS FOR SMALL FOLKS Coats for small folks arc con constructed a bit differently from those sworn by older girls These arc cut with loose front as well as back but at tine same time it is narrow In proportion the basque is longer often reaching onethird down the shapelesscoat style being of full length while dress sleeves usually end at the bow A separate wrap which is much in vogue among young girls is the loose medium length coat of shepherds plaid This is of some soft wool a favorite being white lined with black or grey The only adornment con sists of the fabric or pearl buttons down the front The coat is worn with every sort of dress from time knockabout frock to the dressy afternoon or Sunday outfit Some of the same style coats a bit different in shaping are being worn by young and older women They do not appear so well upon any one as upon the girl for whom they were originally intended Taffeta coats of similar style are also worn but are not so popular nor suitable for youthful wearers LINGERIE HATS FASHIONABLE Hats for the young folks are mostly broad and of the capeline order The straws are supple so that they maybe readily pinched up into any sort of shape The fabric hat that is to say of batiste or linen is of broad shape and very becoming These are more popular than last year if pos sible and may be worn upon almost any occasions according to the hat These are stiffer than the straw hats because they are made over

Agriculture A free scholarship in scientific and practical agriculture is open to some young man who can demonstrate his fitness for the privilege E J IIol lister the Dean of the Winona Agri cultural Institute at Winoua Lake Indiana announces that he will give this free scholarship providing for tuition and living expenses for the two school years Thus it will be seen that the young man who wins this scholarship will get through with comparatively little expense to him self The course given in the Insti tute embraces agriculture and horti culture The student will not be allowed to take up any special line either in the practice or the acquiring of these kindred sciences However special privileges may be granted where the student shows a decided taste for specializing Competition is open to young men over sixteen years of age from State in the Union of good character endorsed by two well known citizens Those who wish to compete should write to the Dean not later than August 1st giving a brief history of their life and five reasons why they desire to take up agricultural science The work is simplified so very much at the Insti tute that candidates having a Com mon School education should be able to succeed and after graduating have an opportunity to take up practical work at other points where the Dean is now directing the development of small farms or reclamation projects and

SOIL OF TIlE SOUTHWEST WHERE SUSSWXB AXD AltUSDAXT WATER PRODUCE MARVELOUS YIELDS Expert Truck Gardeners Growers of Berries and Small Fruits and Poultry Raisers are Invited to Form the First Homecrofters Village in the Outskirts of Phoenix Salt River Valley Arizona Down in the historic Southwest that portion of the American continent whose ancient civilization antedates possibly that of even old Egypt a wonderful work of transformation is going on The magic of irrigation is again making populous and wealthy the wonderfully fertile lauds of Ari zona which in arcs gone by supported great cities and a dense agriculturil population The most remarkable single instance of this development is soon in the warm and sunny valley of the Salt Iliver where by means of irrigation the city of Phoenix has arisen and is soon destined to become one of the large cities of the Southwest through the construction of the enormous Touto Ijusm Uosrvoir A Homecrofter Village is now be ing formed near Phoenix it is the outgrowth of and combines three great ideas 1 That the national government should irrigate the deserts and drain the swamps to create opportunities for men to got homes on the land who want only sufficient land each to oc cupy and use and intensively cultivate with his own labor 2 That the men who want such homes should be aided to get them by an organization which should work solely for the benefit of the IIoiuo seeker and aid him in every possible way to rot the best quality of laud in small tracts for the lowest posibo price with perfect titles and water rights 3 That the success of the Homo seekers who secure those homes should be promoted through an organization which would plan to aid in buildip village communities where the highest possible advantages of education operation and social life and the most attractive rural environment woiiM surround the homes and be a part of the home life of the residents of the vil lageTo carry into practical operation these three great ideas throe separate organizations were In turn planned and formed by George II Maxwell The first idea was carried out through The National Irrigation Association which conducted a great campaign for national irrigation resulting in the en actment of the National Irrigation Act in Tune 1003 The second idea was formulated and put into working operation through the organization of the Rural Settlements Association The third idea has been embodied in an organization recently formed called the Homecrofters Gild of tlu Talisman an account of which was glv n in the last issue of this paper In each of these associations Mr DESERT TOWN AND- IRRIGATION CANAL SCENES IN THE SALT RIVER VALLEY AIUZONA Department Maxwell was and is still the active moving spirit and those who avail themselves of the opportunities he is laboring to create for men of moder ate means to get homes on the land will secure the benefit of his wide experience extending over more than fifteen years during which time he has given the closest study to every element necessary to the success of the man who makes a home on Irri gated land GREAT IRRIGATION DAM After the passage of the National Irrigation Act Mr Maxwell spent several months in the Salt River Val organizingtheA association known as the Salt River Valley Water Users Association That Association contracted with the national government for the construction under the National Irrigation Act of the great Tonto Itoservoir which is now being built on Salt River Some 70 miles above Phoenix and what was once an almost inaccessible region visited only by the murderous Apaches and the oldtimes outlaws the Salt River and its tributary lonto Creole emerge from a frowning can yon Here ono nion are at work on the givit Tonio dam This lurre structure will rise feet above the foundation and 230 feet above the river level Eight hundred feet wide at the top or curb it will form a giant wedge connecting the towering canyon walls and become as the en gineers report states as immovable and everlasting as the adjoining rock It will create a lake backing the water up the Salt River 11 or 15 miles nut 10 miles up the Tonto When tVi reservoir is completed the water will How in the river channel for J4 miles and then be diverted by means of canals to the irrigable lands surround ing Phoenix This lake will hold in times as m idi as the S million dol lar Croton reservoir which has just been constructed to supply New York City with water and it will hold more than the great Assouan dam across the Nile Many of the day laborers on this work are Apache Indians now peace ful remnants of Geronimos wild band A Power Canal has been taken out carrythe laketoit will be dropped over in a water Inthiswill be placed in the river and canal system twenty thousand horse power will be developed for use by the resi dents of the lands irrigated in the Valley below from the reservoir for pumping water for irrigation and other purposes The work on this stupendous government structure is being pushed forward with all practicable haste It is believed that in less than two years from today the water from the reservoir will be flowing into the canal of the Salt River Valley In much less time than that the govern ment will be furnishing electric power for running the pumping plants of the farmers in the valley and furnishing electric power for all the purposes for which power from this source can be GARDEN FARM TRACTS More than a year ago Mr Maxwell conceived the idea that the highest and best use to which the lands under this great government irrigation system could be devoted was that they should be subdivided into small tracts for garden farming berry culture and the growing of small fruits melons and other products of intensive cultivation The raising of poultry in all its brandies would of course be one of theseintensiYclIn the past this character of land cul theSaltthat at the season of the the water was most neededthere being no reservoir the river was at its lowest stage and the supply of water changedbyReservoir practicaldemionstration rived from garden farms of this class should be so organized as to embody PROSPEROUS SCENES IN TEMPE ONE OF THE TOWNSS J every possible advantage and safeguard Mr Maxwell eviployod to tithe most expert agriculturists in t Salt River Valley whose long nidence there and familiarity with the country peculiarly qualified them to select land to the brst advantage These gentlemen the Broomell Brothers spent several months looking over land and finally selected a tract adjoining the tracks of the Phoenix Eastern Railroad one mile from the street railway in the city of Phoenix immediately under the Salt Canal and having the oldest and best Of all the old water rights in the Valley To these old water rights will be added the Government Reservoir Right soon as the reservoir system is com soil in this tract is the finest alluvial loam resulting from thousands of years of rich deposit from the Salt River but above all danger of overflow For more than a year the Rural Settlements Association has been at work preparing this land for subdi vision and settlement It has been all leveled and checked and distributing ditches and cross ditches built the avenues planted with palms and olive trees and everything done to put the tract in the best possible condition for homebuiiding and for cultivation in vegetables and melons and all kinds of truck gardening and small fruit and berry culture SURE CROPS UNDER IRRIGATION For such products the absolute certainty of a water supply always and at any time whenever needed without any human possibility of shortage is the corner stone and the only sure foundation for success Any uncer tainty in the water supply means failureRealizing this anti cringing to a solution of the problem his long ex perience and wide observation of the essential elements of complete success in the slaking of such homes as it has been planned should be made on this tract Mr Maxwell went still beyond the assurance even of water from the river and the government reservoir Hill there has put down on the property a group of wells on which a pumping plant will be constructed These wells have an inexhaustible supply of underground water which will furnish more water than can be used questionganized as a cooperative water company so that each home owner in the tract will have his proportion of owner ship in it and the furnishing of pumped water to adjoining land may be made a source of substantial profit to those who are so fortunate as to be coowners in the plant None will be allowed to become coowners in it ex cept those who acquire one of the tracts into which this Rural Settlements Association land will be sub divided It is therefore manifest that the tract of land which Is now being subdivided by the Association under the direction of Mr Maxwell with Mr T W Broomell acting as Local Superintendent on the ground offers the following advantages to the home a selection of the very best tract of land so far as quality of the land is concerned that could be found In the Salt River Valley rich and In exhaustible alluvial bottom land pe culiarly adapted to the culture of the crops which yield the highest acreage profit with intensive cultivation Second a water right in the oldest and best canal system in the Valley which will be added to by a water right in the Touto Basin Reservoir from the national government and still further supplemented by a right in the cooperative water company that will own and operate the pumping plant w GRAPES ORANGES ONE MILE OF PHOENIX VISo that by no human possibility can the occupant of one of these garden farms fail to have an abundant water supply whenever needed and to what ever extent the water may be required The Salt River Valley is in the cen tral part of Arizona and the summer climate is of course hot but with such land as that embraced in the tract referred to with the ample and unfail ing supply of water for its cultivation the summer heat and long growing season make it possible to practically engage in hot house culture out of doors and to mature crops so rapidly that four or or even more of some crops a year may be produced from the same land This makes possible a profit per acre from truck gardening and berry culture and the raising of small fruits combined with poultry raising on the same place that will yield a profit per acre wholly unob tainable in a more rigorous climate The miners and great mining camps of the Southwest furnish an unsur passed market for all the products of such garden farms as those proposed on this tract of land A THRIVING LITTLE CITY The City of Phoenix on the outskirts of which this land is located is the capitol of Arizona and is a city of twelve to fifteen thousand people with excellent schools churches and all commercial facilities One finds in this southwestern city and on the surrounding farms men from all sections of the country New England the South the Mississippi Valley and the Northwest There is a public school immediately adjoining the uurai 8tllemonts Tract above described and it will be the aim of the Association to cooperate to nrke this a model school A beet sugnr ftctory is the most re cent addition to the industries of the land here described which is designated as the Rural Settlements Tract has been subdivided into live acre plots and these will be sold only to those who are already skilled in truck gardening berry and small fruit culture and poultry raising because it is planned to make this initial colony a demonstration of the possibilities of the Salt River Valley for this class of agriculture and it is desired that the demonstration should be made by those who know how Sales will not be made io parties who do not wish to actually live on the laud or do not know how Pllr1chaserslatter aiid for that reason is offering the land to the kind of customers de sired at a price so low that it is a chance rarely found by anyone who understands intensive cultivation of a small tract of land and wants such a home Including the water rights in the canal system and the pumping plant the laud will be sold in five acre tracts for only l150 an acre in cash partlieuhuIllation as to the Homecroft Movement is cordially invited to address George II Maxwell 1405 Fisher Building Chi Maxwell is the Executive Chairman of The National Irrigation Association and the Executive Chairman and General Counsel of the Rural Set tlements Association and the Dean of the Iloinecrofters Gild of the Talis man and is devoting himself to carry ing out through these three associ ations the three great ideas which are set forth at the beginning of this arti cle His success in the National Irriga tion Movement is demonstrated by the following extracts from letters and telegrams sent to him after the passage of the National Irrigation Act OF GENERAL INTEREST plans for the building of this Homecrofters Village near Phoenix is one that should interest the busi ness men especially of every town and village in the country It will be a demonstration and a working model for the subdivision of laud now held in large tracts near every town or village into small Garden Homes where the prosperity of the many who will intensively cultivate such small garden farms will contribute to the volume of trade and prosperity of the merchants of the town and en AND OUT five largo its Social Circle and add to the charm of its social life One quarter section of laud thus subdivided will add thirtytwo families to the com munity and correspondingly increase the trade of the town This movement for the building of Ilomeerofts or small garden homes In the outskirts of existing towns or villages or in the suburbs of the cities is a logical enlargement of the central idea around which time National Irri ration Movement was organized That idea was that the greater the number of such small garden farms the greater the general prosperity and stability of the country Ihe success of the Homecroft Village near Phoenix will lead to its duplication in the neighborhood of many other cities and towns throughout the country All inquiries or communications as to the lands or matters above referred- to should lo addressed to GEORGE H MAXWELL Executive
