LIVE STOCK [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 December 1908
LIVE STOCK A PRACTICAL HOG HOUSE THE most approved hog house has an alley through the center with pens on both sides with cates placed conveniently to change the hogs from one pen to another as wanted . Hog houses are for u ^ se in winter only . Hogs should never be shut up in a house in summer weather , but fait pigs must have a house to properly care for them during the winter , not necessarily a warm house , but a place that can be well ventilated and that may be kept clean . You want a pen about twelve feet square with an elevated nest in one corner or along one side . The side nest offers less opportunity to pile up . The only way to keep a hog house clean is to have the floot ^ of cement with incline enough . so it may be scraped with a hand scraper and occasionally washed with a hose . Hogs may be kept clean like other animals if the owner is determined to do so . Increased growth and extra prices will make it pay . From five to ten hogs in a pen according to size is enough ....

A FARMERS' BANK [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 December 1908
A FARMERS BANK An agricultural bank is being establi s hed in Brazil for the purpose of developing plantations along modern lines . It is in conformity with the .. general plan to aid the agricultural interests of the country by loaning money on agricultural security to encourage development of the resources of the country . The business of the bank is practically limited to the extension of credit to agricultural interests by discounting mortgages and notes taken from planters and agricultural societies at a low rate of interest for periods not exceeding one year . The bank is the result of long agitation from the agricultural interests because of long standing complaints on account of lack of facilities for borrowing money to carry on the business of ranching . The intention is to stop the mortgaging of crops to Shylock dealers to carry the planter during the growing season .

ORCHARD AND GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 December 1908
ORCHARD AND GARDEN WINTER PRUHIHG BEST When to prune is another common question . There are a great many ideas in regard to the time to prune trees . Since the healing , of trfe . wound depends upon the activity of the cambium it would seem , other things being favorable , the quicker the healing begins the better it is for the tree . The healing goes on faster in the spring after the plant starts to grow . Taking into consideration the healing of the wounds and the activity of the cambium the better time to prune would be in the spring before growth begins . This does not mean , however , that trees cannot be pruned in the winter . Trees may be pruned any time after the leaves fall off , but the earlier the pruning is done in the fall or winter the longer it will take the wounds to heal over . , A WINTER TASK Indianas State Entomologist , Mr . B . W . Douglass , urges all who own orchards to spray for the San Jose scale . The spraying of trees to kill the scale is not an expensive ...

FROM THE EXPERIMENT STATION TO GROW HEMP IN WISCONSIN Experiments in the growing of hemp in Wisconsin will be conducted by the agronomy department of the University of Wisconsin in co-operation with the U . S . department of Agriculture and the State Board of Control . The farms of the state penitentiary at Waupun , the Mendota Insane Asylum , and the Agricultural Experiment Station at Madison have been chosen for the experiments , which will be carried on under the supervision of L . H . Dewey , a government agronomist . The plan is to discover what soils in this state are best adapted to the culture of hemp , and whether crops can be produced at a price to make possible its use for binder twine . Experiments will also be made with various machines for the separation of the fibers from the plant , and to discover the economic value of hemp as a rotation crop . The agronomy department of the university is in correspondence with all of the main hemp producing districts of the country...

PGUUSI [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 December 1908
PGUUSI A SMALL POULTRY HOUSE A LITTLE two story poultry house that looks like a plaything , but this house is alright so far as it goes . It is especially valuable for a boy who would like to start in the poultry business but cannot afford a more expensive house . This little house is four feet wide and twelve feet long with a scratching shed the full size oh the ground under the floor . This space underneath is two feet high and the windows should extend well across the front side . A runway for the chickens to get up and down the stairs is made by sawing off one wide floor board and hinging itin such a way as to let one end drop to the ground . When this is raised up it fits the opening in the floor and it should be fitted with jambs to keep the cold from coming through the cracks . The nest boxes and roosts are loose so that they may be moved about for cleaning or taken out at any time and put back as needed . It is not intended that any one will find it necessary to &gt;...
