only a few years since we had more than a dozen distilleries in this county furnishing plenty of whisky all who would drink What is the picture now It is not uncommon to see from 600 to 1000 wagons driving into Glasgow loaded with farm products lumber poultry etc and leave in the evening with goods and the necessi of life to carry to their homes the vets not oven thinking of whisky We believe this great amount ofha pmess and prosperity is largely due to local option Local option will cause anv community to have more money better churches new and Improved hddlihouses more healthful people

wonderful local option rule we feel prepared to say that after about thirty yearsexperience we great ly prefer no saloons We saw in the days of open saloons some of the noblest business men that would have lived sober upright lives but for the temptation and convienience of the saloon Their friends would invite them in to take a glass and then they would yield to the influences and fall and the consequence was a con tinued drunken spree fqr two weeks or longer The same men under local qp tion rule made the very best of businessmen because bv local option law the temptation was moved beyond their reach Jn the days df saloons we had fight ing murdering and such confusion on public days that it was dangerous to on the streets Women andchiidre looked upon public days with fear and trembling When the saloons were voted out peace and quiet reigned On the six teenthof last June there was perhaps the largest crowd of people that assembled here at one time Estimat at ten thousand There was no one ar rested the city judge sat around his gffice but no one was brought before him and the jail door stood wide open The town marshal had time to atten the entertainments of the day and ming le with his old time friends Under local option rule the town has prospered in every line Good streets and superior side walks in every direction and riot a dollar of blood money in them Property has been advancing in value people from the country and from a distance are moving here to educate their children and rear them up in a orS town Others are here because it is such a fine place in which to do

year If these houses were built the that the trust knowing that unless paid a fair price for the tobacco it could be put in these houses and handled as above indicated the trust would thereby be induced to increase the price from two to three cents per pound more than they would pay if the people had 110 except to sell to it if the houses were to remain as a roosting places for owls and bats the growers would our realize for their every year more than twice the origin al cost of the houses they would to some extent beinde end ent of the trust But someone may say if we construct these houses the trust will buy out county tobacco and we will never be able to sell to it These were made when the dark to bacco people had the courage to handle their tobacco on the same trust did hold off for awhile but finally that the growers were simply the same rights the trust claimed for itself and that the growers were the set by the trust and freely bought their tobacco along with other

without artificial HOW THINGS GROW IN THE SOUTHWEST moisture But the big farms are not prosperous They are largely culti vated by tenants and are strangely devoid of features which make the true southwestern 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 Sacramento Valley which consists of one 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 Cheeks 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 com fortable 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 fire 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 iBarn and Corral upace 75 x 7a fleet Rabbit Hutch 25x2o

Discovery One series of experiments have just been concluded by the Department oT Agriculture that promise to be of Im mense value to the farmers of the country In furnishing them with 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 long and quite nn interesting story and probably will mean a great deal to Agriculture in 4thIs 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 yery finely powdered rock the idea struck him as It has struck a good many other chemists that It was a natural born shame that this country with an unlimited supply of rock in its percentage of potash shouldbayc to d pend on other countries for its potash salts for there has never len any commercial deposits of the salts found in this coun try as It is in Germany HQ extracted clectrlcltythoughthat this can be done on n paying commercial basis But then he de verycheapthe experiment of letting the plants do their own extracting He tried the experiment on his own place up country and found that the powdered 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 teed it into promIsesSUCCESSFUL GREENHQUSE EXPERIMENTS The work was then turned over to the bureau of plant industry and three similar plots of tobacco were V ROCK planted in the greenhouse One of ImportedGermanwithout any fertilizer at all and the third was with finely ground common granite The granite was high in potash but it had not been treated in any way and if the experi ment succeeded it simply meant that there was a big new field of homegrown fertilizer open to the farmer When the crops of tobacco were produced155 pounds The powdered granite produced a crop of 154 pounds and the unfertilized crop was spotted and ran only about 120 pounds This crop was examined by the experts 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 in the patch on which the German 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 amok ing and tested in that way But that was greenhouse experiment and greenhouse wqrk to fieldwork is about like laboratory experi ments to commercial Work 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 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 the potash In the ground rock avail able for the plants During anything like decently wet season there Is lit tie question that there would be water in plenty But It Is possible that for very dry crop there will have to be as much as 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 100 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 number of other concerns that have talked of going Into the business be fore even the field experiments of the department ore finished The outlook Is for very change in the fertilizing business this country Just where the credit for the work ultimately will land Us a question It probably will not be WIth Dr Cusman or the road office t If SCJTILIZEQ AND CAPONS IiGUV 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 is what the department is there for It Is a discovery which if Itupnn8 out is of immense importance to agriculture There are many crops such as tobacco

from two to three months old not over six months and weigh not less than a pound to a pound and Ji half The size is equally as important as the age April May June 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

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 tho operation go until you have n bright and fair day It is necessary that you ijavc all the light possible 1m 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
