Does This Mean You?

In the Woman's Home Companion Fannie Merritt Farmer says: The so called cream soups are very nutri tious and furnish a most acceptable course for a simple home dinner, but are too hearty for a full-course din ner. Many kinds of vegetables may be utilized in this way, among the number being lima beans, celery, peas, potatoes, squash and tomatoes. I know of no such satisfactory way of using peas which are too old to serve as a vegetable. Old peas, as well as beans, on account of the large amount of cellulose (woody fiber) which they contain, are difficult of digestion, and, of course, the cellu lose is discarded when the vegetables are used in soup. Many people think soups are difficult to make. You who are of the same opinion just try this recipe and see if you are not con vinced to the contrary. Ope...

Mutual or Old Line Insurance? (Fred W. Lewis.) Did any of our readers ever stop to think how much of your hard earn ed cash you were needlessly paying out to fill the pockets of the other fellow? I realize that duty requires us to help each other, but then "char ity begins at home," and it is our first duty to look out for our family. For instance, it is our duty to carry an insurance on our property, as there are none of us who are proof against misfortune and a loss can more eas ily be carried by a number than by one, so if fire consumes our house or barn we should have an insurance policy to appeal to so the loss will not fall so heavily on us alone. Now there are numerous companies who undertake to carry that risk for a certain monetary consideration; and to make themselves safe and repay themsel...

14 LIVE STOCK Cost of Raising Sheep. The cost of managing sheep under range conditions necessarily varies within rather wide limits. If the sheep raiser simply makes use of the public lands without paying rental or taxes, and if he is fortunate enough to find suitable grazing in localities where winter feeding is not neces sary, the business may be conducted at a cost of about twenty-five cents a head a year. On the other hand, sheep raisers who maintain extensive plants, feed in the winter and own or rent a considerable part of the land upon which the sheep graze, have found that, the cost of managing sheep under these conditions varies from seventy-five cents to $1.25 a head a year. This estimate of expenses in cludes all items of expense connected with the management of sheep under range conditions, such as horses and other animals necessary for driving and draft purposes, household ex penses, etc., as well as actual manage ment of the sheep. The distance form the base of supplie...

HUMUS==ITS RELATION TO SOILS AND CROPS FOR the progressive farmer or orchardist the matter of fertilizers for his soil bids fair to hold his close attention for years to come. In time past the farmer of the northwest has been content to let the soil take care of itself in this respect, but with the repeated croppiugs the fertilizer content is being depleted, and the fact forces itself upon the owner that neglect of the soil in this respect cannot be longer allowed. There are many points to be considered in treating of such a broad subject, but we will only take up that of humus in the soil in this issue, for, be it known, humus is an imperative constituent of all soils that are to produce good crops. Humus, as every one should know, is the organic matter in the soil, and its most important v...

2 moisture other i«mi we absorbed willi this moisture and these art upon the unsoluble elements of the soil. leaving them ready for the plant to Absorb. To BhOW how soils may ab sorb moisture an experiment was made in Germany on several kinds of soil. all in as nearly a dry state as possi ble. Taking gypsum as the basis, it was found that in twenty-tour hours lime sand absorbed three times as much moisture as the gypsum; clay soil about twenty-eight times as much as the gypsum; garden mold about titty-two times as much, and humus about 120 limes as much. This shows that humus has greater power to ab sorb moisture from the air than any other ingredient in the soil. In addition to absorbing moisture our farmer readers know that rich black soil will hold the moisture longer than clay soils. The reasons for this are: First, the soil rich in humus can hold more moisture than clay soils; and second, cultivation being easier, the surface can be broken more read ily, so that the moisture ca...

8 THE DAIRY Dehorning Not Injurious to Cows. (Prof. B. B. Elliott) A reader of The Ranch inquires: "What effect does dehorning have on cows? Can it injure them as milk ers, as some assert is the case?" Repeated tests with all kinds of cattle undergoing dehorning, includ ing cows in full flow of milk, -show that there is practically no injury caused by the dehorning, except such as would be caused temporarily by excitement from similar causes. At the Georgia station nine cows made an actual increase in the flow of milk the day following the dehorning. At the North Dakota station fourteen cows were dehorned with the result that most of them fell off slightly in milk production, but sained in in crease of butter fat and by the second day all were back to normal flow. At the Cornell. N. V., station the results showed a decrease for a few days aft er the horns were removed, but this was soon recovered. At the Tennes see station a large herd lost but one tenth of one per cent, in the tota...
