TURN LAMBS IN CORNFIELD
Youngsters Make Qood Use of Blades
Which Are Usually Wasted and
Keep Down tha Weeds.
(Hy M. A. COVKIIDEI.M
Whllo both the older sheep and the
lambs may bo turned Into the corn-
field aftor the corn reaches a stage
at which the lower blades begin to
wither It Is well to keep a close watch
of tho larger animals to boo that
they do not got to nibbling the huska
from the low-hanging ears.
This Is not apt to occur until all
tho lower blades of tbo corn have
been eaten off and In that case tha
lambs may ba allowed to run In the
field till they are sold or brought In
tor winter Bhelter.
Where one has lambs to turn Into
tha cornfield they will not only make
uso of the blades of corn which are
usually wasted but they will keep
down the weeds that are Invariably
springing up after com plowing is
orer thus seeding the field to tho peat
for the following season.
The manure dropped by the lambs
will also be scattered around orer the
fields thereby fertilizing tho land with-
out the usual time and labor expended
In hauling and spreading tho manure.
Another advantage In pasturing the
cornfield after cultivation is onded Is
that It will be much easier to gat
through the corn at gathering time
and the ciws will bo the more exposed
RAISING CANADA FIELD PEAS
In Combination With Oats and Darley
Valuable Forage Crop May Be
Obtained In South.
A reader wants to know "the dlf-
ferenco betwoen Canada Held peas and
our natlvo peas. They aro advertised
at 75 cants a bnihel cheaper nnd if
thoy are as good 1 want to buy soma
for planting in corn nt last working
also for hogs to graze on."
There is little resemblance between
the Canadian field pea (plsum nrveneo
I) which resemble vefy closely the
garden pea (pjltum sativum L.) and
tho Southern cowpen (vlgna ungulcu-
lata). The Canadian field pea will not
do well eowod In corn at the last
working. In fact It should bo sowed
In January and February according
to tha location and is then In com-
bination with such crops as oata and
barley a valuable forage or bay crop
for the South. We know of nothing
better than cowpeaa for planting In
corn says Progressive Farmer taking
the Cotton Helt aa a whole. The price
of cowpea seed la high because It is
a poor and unreliable ytelder of seed
and no entirely satisfactory method
of harvesting the seed haa been
adopted. Canada field peaa are
cheaper bor-" they make a larger
yield of seed

No one point In tha horse Is inor

Worn-Out 8olls Economical Way
of Feeding to Hogs.
For Improving worn-out aolls foi
pasture for hny and for green forag
for stock the southern cowpea U
of great valuo.
The New Era cowpea Is a ver
early variety oarllor than the nlacl
eye the quickest growing of any ol
the varieties maturing in about slxtj
days from the date of germination of
seed. This Is tho beat variety for sow-
ing In the middle states. For tb
southern states sow the black-eyed
cowpeas red ripper or clay peas. Foi

and for midsummer green forage foi
hogs and cows and sheep sow early.
Hogs thrive on cowpoas. Practical
and observant farmers estimate thai
ono aero of cowpeas when the peai
In tho pod arn In the milk will feed
and fatten ready for market 16 (hosts
and 20 half-grown pigs. The most
economical way to feed Is to fence off
a email portion of the peaa and after
this Is eaten close glvo a second per
tlon. If tho hogs are allowed too
much a portion will be wasted. The
hogs should have nn nbundaace ol
puro water at nil times and a mix-
ture of wood ashes nnd sulphur. Mix
one quart of coarse salt in each bnsh-
el of nshea. This mineral matter will
correct the acid In the vines. Foi
cows and sheep cut the vines whet
free from moisture and let them will
a few hours before feeding. Glvo thi
stock n little old hay or straw and
after this Is eaten a small quantity
of the wilted pea vines may be given
This is the safest way to feed as thi
vines contain so much water that tho)
should never be fed whon freshly cut
or too much at a time aa It Is certnlr
to produce hoven and may cause tht
death of a vajuable animal.
Hogs Need Shade.
