THE WANETTE ENTERPRISE
GETTING ALONG IN DRY BELT
Farmer Whose Expenses Are Met by
Cows, Hens and Garden Has No
Debts in Years of Drought
A fair hog pasture can bo made by
sowing wheat and sorghum. An acre
of milo will yield sufficient grain to
make 400 pounds of good pork. Milo,
sorghum and other dry crops make
good poultry feed. The dry land cli-
mate is particularly favorable for
poultry and hens that aro selected
from laying strains will each produce
eggs worth $2 a year if rightly cared
for, writes H. M. Cottrell in Denver
Field and Farm. Good houses can be
made of sod, straw or lumber. The
hens should be cared for and the
houses cleaned daily. The dry land
farmer who is willing to spend a
little time each day with his hens can
keep from 100 to 200 and add $200 to
$400 a year to his cash income.
From one-fourth to one-half an acre
close to the well should be plowed
deeply and worked and reworked un-
til it is thoroughly pulverized. This
should be planted with garden seeds
and potatoes in rows far enough
apart to be cultivated with a horBe.
If a large tank is used for watering
the stock it can be filled with water
to irrigate. Open a narrow furrow
the entire length of the row, pull a
straight post through the furrow to
smooth the ground and then run the
ditch full of water. Apply the water
after sundown and the next morning
cultivate thoroughly to make a mulch
that will hold the water.
The settler who follows this plan
will have a steady cash income from
his cows and hens, and the garden
will supply his table. The chickens
and hogs will furnish eggs and meat
to sell and use. If the season is wet
or dry, he will have a good living
and cash to pay for everything he
needs to buy. Then for surplus funds
he can grow wheat which is a dry-
land crop. It often yields more than
the value of the land in a single sea-
son. Then there may be a year,
sometimes two or three of total fail-
ure, and sometimes for two or three
seasons in succession he will have
good crops. The dry-land farmer
whose expenses are met by his cows,
hens and garden lives well and has
no debts in the dry years.

New Englander Tells Good Story to
Illustrate the Progress That Marks
Congressman William II. Murray, on
his return from a vacation Ip the
heart of the New England country,
said in Tishomingo:
"The progress of the country Is as-
tonishing. The farmer of today drives
his motor car, smokes his cigarette
in a long amber tube, and, over his
after-dinner coffee, listens to Caruso,
singing the ‘Star Song' from 'Tosca'
on the phonograph, or hears his wife
rendering on the player-piano Grieg’s
'Peer Gynt’ suite.
“My New England .farmer host, In
answer to my compliments, said, yes,
things had changed on the farm, and,
to accent this change, he told a story

took a chew of tobacco and said:
“ ‘Thet thar new preacher of ourn
is certainly a dude. Gosh hang my
buttons ef he don’t comb out his
whiskers every morntn’. I got it
straight from his hired gal.’
“Everybody stared at the general
storekeeper in astonishment before
this news. Then the old squire
chuckled and said:
“ ‘Wall, by crinus, I don’t see how
he stands the torture of it. I comb
my whiskers every Sunday, and
danged ef the knots don’t make me
plumb near cuss an’ swear.’ ”
An Immense Help.

THROW AWAY WATERING POT
When Water Is Scarce Spade or Hoe
Can Do Wonders In Hands of
an Energetic Person.
When water gets scarce throw away
your watering pot, or rather your
sprinkling pot. At such a time it is a
menace to the life of the flowers when
in the hands of the novice who “scat-
ters pearly drops" upon the flowers’
stalks and gives the roots none.
Remember that when water is
scarce that the spade or hoe can do
wonders when in the hands of the
energetic person who knows how to
use these tools.

ERUPTION COVERED BODY
321 Lee St., Hampton, Va.—“In July
of last year the eczema made its first
appearance on my fingers and before
the last of August my body was com-
pletely covered. I was unable to sleep
at night the Itching was so severe. I
had to take sleeping medicines sev-
eral times a week to get any sleep at
all. It broke out as a rash and some
of the eruption turned to boils. My
chin was covered and I had several
boils on my face. My hands looked so
that I had to stop school and my
clothes irritated the eruption so much
that it kept me scratching all the time.
I could not stay in a warm room and
I could not put my hands In warm
water at all.
