' bdividul Retpocsibility. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 24 March 1906
' bdividul Retpocsibility. There is no excuse for ugliness, either public or private. The beautiful house, the beautiful surroundings, need cost no more than the ugly ones. In no community is the most expend sive house the most artistic. Beauty comes out of the beautiful mind, the fine spirit, and is not definitely related to the pocketbook. Nearly all fail to finish "their homes by neglecting the grounds. That which would yield the most for the least expense is omitted. Many have lost a great opportunity in the neglect of yards and particularly backyards, in which beautiful gardens might be built. Who is it that may not buy seeds? The cost of flowers counts for nothing. The price of theater tickets o£a few street car rides, aud eae' hiay have the joy of flowers from the seed or from plants for a whole year.
Plowing Under Green Crepe. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 24 March 1906
Plowing Under Green Crepe. It'is not safe to delay plowing under green crops much longer. The fiber of thß plants will rapidly toughen from now on and the more fiber the plant contains, the more moisture and the longer time will it take to decompose it. It should all be disintegrated before the summer weather comes on or a great deal of the benefit will be lost. A heavy growth that lies near the surface causes the soil to dry out and besides it is always Interferrlng with tfie cultivation. A large part of the benefit that would be derived from it during the coming year will be laid over if not entirely lost, for that which the cultivator drags out -is usually bunched and burned or carried off tfae land to get rid of it. A good method is to dlec the peas before plowing. This cuts them in small pieces which prevents their bunching at plowing time. The disc alone ie supposed to do both join at once, but where the peas are very heavy they will even .bunch up with this machine.— Cal. Cul...
CicnW Ciitifi [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 24 March 1906
CicnW Ciitifi flrwuwi hnmi lilio dure drought. A light mellow soil is best, though good crops are frequently grown on heavy soils so long as they are not permitted to bake and crack. Plow deeply and thoroughly. Hark out the ground five feet apart each way and at the intersection incorporate a large shovelful of well rooted farm-compost. In the hills thus formed sow eight, or twelve seeds which will allow ’for half being destroyed by insects. When the plants begin to send out runners thin to the best three or four plants' remaining. Keep the ground well cultivated and free from seeds. A good preventative from insect injury is to dust the plants with Buhach, hellebore, or tobacco dust, especially on the under side of the leave*. For a few plants it is worth while to protect the fruits with mosquito netting. The planting of radish or turnip seeds with the cucumbers has been recommended as some insects will attack these, in preference to the main cfop. Frequent gathering of the fruits a...
Lining fka SiU. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 24 March 1906
Lining fka SiU. An article by an eminent European authority reviews quite fully ■ rqceht investigations, including those of the author and his associates, on the use of lime as a fertilizer, concluding that the results confirm the author’s well known views regarding the necessity of maintaining a definite relation between lime and magnesia in the soil in order to insure the highest productiveness. It is also necessary that neither lime nor magnesia should fall below a certain- limit. For this reason it is urged that soil in analysis determinations should always be made of the magnesia as welt as nf the lime.

Why Dairy Forming Ptya. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 24 March 1906
Why Dairy Forming Ptya. H. W. Potts, of the Hawkesbury Agricultural College, in Australia, thus summarizes the advantages of dairying;, - -• .&gt; I. It takes loss fertility out of the soil than auy other form of agriculture, and hence it is useful in following a well-regulated system of rotation. 2. It can be combined readily with other forms of agriculture or horticulture. 3. The dairy provides in winter a quantity of stable manure -in which the straw from the barn is profitably utilized. 4. The by-products from' the cow skim-milk, whey, and buttermilk, are a source of income in raising pigs and calves. 5. Dairying gives constant and regular employment of a light character to every member of a farmer's family. 6. Dairying inculcates habits of punctuality, industry, cleanliness and thrift on the farm. 7. Cheese and butter are condensed products, and the cost of carriage, in comparison with their value, is less than that of any other farm product. 8. The demand for good butt...
Feeding the Usd. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 24 March 1906
Feeding the Usd. After the home resources in the enrichment of the soil have been exhausted it is time to turn-to commercial fertilizers to supply deficiencies. It is a very simple matter to spread around the trees each year the contents of a few fertilizer bags. This is much easier than spreading several loads of manure or sowing and plowing under a green manure crop.' It Rilkes less time and less w ,:y. Hence many people who own a few fruit trees come to rely upon commercial fertilizers alone, neglecting the other sources of fertility that have been mentioned. This is a great mistake. The home fruit grower should use commercial fertilizers to supplement—not to replace—tillage, green manures and barnyard manures. Some fruit gardens, like some farms, are fertilizer sick. They have been dosed with large quantities of high-grade fertilizers, but the humps content 1 of the soil has not been kept nnp If fertil-1 izers are used, and usually they must be. let them be ,* in conjunction wit...

Control lUliili Supply. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 24 March 1906
Control lUliili Supply. The radish requires quick growth to become crisp and tender. This ig easy to achieve in California, where heat is usually sufficient and irrigation water at band. By successive planting, radishes may be grown nearly every month in the year in favored localities, and for an extended period in almost any situation in the spring. .Winter radishes, however, require at least two months to mature, and they should be planted in August and September for holiday use. Gardeners usually plant about two-thirds of an ounce to the 100 feet. The soil should be light, well worked and very rich to secure rapid, succulent growth.
Thu MUbubCuHuU. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Herald — 24 March 1906
Thu MUbubCuHuU. A warm protest should be registered by our shippers and fruit growers generally, against the increase of weight for minimum carload from 30,000 t0.40,000. pounds. The change will be a decided blow td the smaller shippers, although it will doubtless be to the advantage of the railroads since, it will be nearly as cheap to haul 40,000 pounds as 30,000 pounds. The effect of raising the weight will be to make it more difficult for small Jobbers to oombiueT and then secure the advantage of carload rates. Thus it favors the large shipper and stifles the t There should be some timing found for holding the railrpsKn to give equitable treatment to aB shippers.—-Orchard and Farm.
