WHAT GOOD PLOWING MEANS
In Well Plowed Field Soil Is 3tlrrtd
■nd Pulverized to Depth Indict-
ed as Necessary.
(By A. C. AUNT.)
Good plowing moans more than
making the field appear black, II
means more than making straight fur
rows. However, a good plowman usu-
ally makes straight furrows. In a
well-plowed field the soil Is Btlrrod
and pulverized to the depth Indicated
as necessary by the kind of soil and
the crop to be grown; and the stub
hie and rubbish are completely turned
under where it will be out of the way
and quickly decomposed. For inosl
crops, deep, rather than shallow plow
ing, is the best practice.
To do good work with a minimum
of power, plows must be equipped with
properly shaped and sharpened shareB
A good share allows a plow to run
true and little or no effort Sa necessary
to hold it in place.
To turn under all rubbish a good
jointer properly adjusted is necessary.
No stubble or weeds are left sticking
up botween the furrows where a good
jointer is used.
Keep the plowshare properly shaped
and sharpened. Use a jointer so that
all rubbish is turned under complete
ly. Increase the depth of plowing an
Inch or two each year for several sea
DESTROY ALL GRAPE INSECTS
Fallen Leaves and Trash In Vineyardt
Should Be Raked Together In
Fall and Burned.
Several grape insects winter among
the fallen grape leaves in trash in
vineyards and much may be done to
destroy them if the trash is raked to-
gether and burned.
Such work will be of value against
the grape berry moth and the grape
leaf folder, which hibernate in the
pupal condition in the fallen grape
The grapevine flea beetle anil the
grape leaf hopper spend the winter as
adults under trash of all kinds In aud
about vineyards, and the destruction
of trash as Indicated wtll expose them
to adverse climatic conditions.

Don't Slight the Dairy.
Too many dairy farmers ar« con-
ducting their dairy as a sort of a Bid*
issue when they should be maklnc it
a ncrmanent business.
A good, cheap an,d effective louse
powder is made by adding a mixture
of one part crude carbolic acid and
three parts gasoline to plaster of
parts, all that the powder will blot up.
When th# plaster is dry pulverize it
and store in tight cans. Another effec-
tive remedy is te rub a piece of blue
ointment, the size of a pea, well into
the skin just beneath the vent.
