The American Tree association, an organization devoted to the encourage- ment of arboriculture, asks wlkv nut trees should not be planted along the waysides of this country, both for use and beauty. The obvious answer is that they shotrtd. It happens that the nut trees of this country are almost without exception desirable, not only fo-teir nuts, but for every reason that mkes tree-planting worth while. They are mostly trees of large size; they are beautiful ; and when they are cut the timber which they supply is of high quality. In his recent work on "Tree aa Good Cltlaens," Charles Latrop Pack mentions an instance where a black walnut grew from the seed in Penn- sylvania and bore seven nuts In Its fourth year. That. of course, was an extraordinarily precocious walnut, but the tree in ordinary cases grown rap- idly enough to satisfy any reasonable mall and, unlike the growth of poplars and soft maples, it lives to great old age.Detrolt Free Press. More Community Houses. The community house Idea Is one which Is gaining in popularity In many towns. Petersborough, N. H., has S fine modern building for the purpose which was designed In the Georgian style. There is a hall with a seating capacity of 200 to 300, which is used for various social meetings ; three rooms, which are occupied by the Hi. t toricai society's collection, as well as ]one lng which ia used for the roms of the men's club, and another for the i women's. The building was the gift ',to the town of former Gay. Robert Bast and his mother. Hamilton, Mass., too, can tast a community house, also in Georgian style. It was given as a war memorial by a prominent citizen These r only few of the tow which in one form or another are thus showing their realization of the value of co- operation and community spirit.

A gurvey made hy the department of the damage and loss resulting from this weed in the state of Maryland and part of Pennsylvania where it Is par- ticularly bad, shows that practically all wheat produced in Maryland is In- fested with garlic.

Over 300 flbld men were added on July 2 to the force conducting the orlglwM farm-to-farm survey for com- mon barberry bushes under the direc- tion of the United States Department of Agriculture. It is planned to eom- plete the survey of all territory in the eight states West of the Mississippi river which are la the barberry-erad- cation area by the end of the year.. Field work has been going forward since May, attention being given main- ly to resurvey work and the treating of sprouting and escaped bushes with cheuflcals, The use of common salt or crushed rock salt applied to the crown of the bushes is finding favor among farmers because of its eflicie-cy la kill. ing the plants and its ease of applies- Lion- A recent report to the depart- ment stated that out of 600 bushes treated with salt in a single area, but two were found on the reaurvey that were not completely killed. Surveys will also be conductc In five states east of the Mlsallppi river, but present indications are that it will not be possible to complete the original farm-to-farm survey in this section in less than two years. A number of 'e- surveys wlll be made to eradicate many of the escaped bushes, sprouts and seedlings which may have ap- peared in the area in which the original survey has been completed in the sac- Digestive troubles In the horse are often the result of injudicious feeding and watering, especially during the hot summer months when the horse is do- ing a full quota of work. It must be remembered that if the horse Is tired out and exhausted hls stomach and other internal organs are In the same condition and are not in a fit state to start to do their work, which is the proper digestion and assimilation of the food taken in by the animal. If the stomach Is unable to perform its work In normal manner and a large feed of oats is given It can easily be under- stood that the results are apt to be dis- astrous and lead to severe callas which often have a fatal ending. Many cilcs are due to feeding immediately the horse comes in from a hard spell of work and when he is heated and tired out. Being hungry, he starts in to eat rapidly, with the result that the stom- ach becomes overloaded and unable to handle the food. In a short time the horse shows signs of pain and restless- ness and the farmer has on his hands a very sick animal If the horse is ex- : hausted, allow him only a mouthful of water and feed a sloppy bran mash, which is easy of digestion, but the oats and hay must be withheld until tow animal is cooled and been well rzht,ed down. By that time, under the influ- ence of the bran. mash, the stomach will have recovered its tone and be In Motor to m Con00ort The Chrysler -er Sedan is moot popular for family use, becamm ;P"'*' i t affords comfort, weather protec- on and the home atmosphere all the year 'round for five people--yet may t economically oimmted with SUPERIOR only one or two pauengtfs.

Methods of eradication through readily applicable cultural practices suggested by the department have proved to be successful wherever em- ployed" yet the survey zhows that large quantities of the bulbleta are be- ing sown each year, through failure to get clean seed or through a failure to realize the exteRt of infestation in the seed being so-n.

Nearly every farmer interviewed admitted that there was a small amount of gar- lic in his wheat, but frequently this small amount upon analysla proved to be 50 or more buiblets for each pound of wheal Killing Potato Bugs by Using Arsenate of Lead Arsenate of lead is one of the best poisons to "use, and for a liquid spray should be mixed at the rate of 1.5 pounds of powdered arsenate of lead to 50 gallons of water. In small amounts one-half ounce or one heap- ing tablespoonful to a gallon of water gives the same strength. A little water should first be added to the powder and stirred until It makes a thin smooth paste. Thls paste can then be stirred Into the required amount of water and the solution is ready for use. With good dusteror dust gun a mixture of one part powdered arsenate of lead and fifteen parts of air-slaked or hydrated lime will be quite effec- tive In killing the beetles. A mixture of one part of paris green to twenty parts of lime is also effec- five. If no dater is available the mixture can be applied by shaking it on the plants through a cheese-cloth bag. The dust sticks to the plants better if applied when the dew is on --F M. Page, Missouri Experiment Station, pasturing Sweet Clover to Prevent Woodiness Sweet clover has been condemned by many because it grow too rank and becomes so woody that stock will not eat IL This is true if it is not pastured heavily enough to keep it down. But if enough animals are kept on It ao that It does not get more than nine or ten inches high, new shoots will be produced contlnuomsly which will be tender and palatable. If enough stock Is not available to keep the sweet clover at the proper height, part of it should be mowed for hay, say the agronomists of the Nebraska Agricultural college. It should be mowed high enough (leave stubble av least elgitt laches tall) so that. plenty of live buds are left on the side of the sterns to produce a new crop. Un- like alfalfa, It does not send up new shoots from the crown after it has attalrred considerable growth the second year. Refilling Small Silos When Somewhat Empty Farmers with small silos, who can- not store enough lags to run them all winter, can makt their supply" last longer If they will cut their corn, shock it, and when the silo becomes somewhat empty refill with the shocked corn. This kind of silage is better feed an the shecked corn direct from the field although It is not a good as the llage that was put into the lie when lhe corn was at the righ age. It has be found that placing new dings on the old will not hurt either. ;moulded there is no moldy silage on oztlm Lions already sdrveyed. Keep Seed Grain Pure; Rogue Foreign Plants Aa you travel along the country roads how many grain fields do you see which have not a liberal sprink- ling of other kinds of grain in them? In the winter wheat you will usually see some heads of rye sunning them- selves five or six inches above the level of the field, and in the ots oc- casional bunche of silvery whiskers give away the hiding place of stray barley plants, declares E. B. Holden of the agronomy department of the Wisconsin College of Agriculture. "While It Is difficult to keep the grain absolutely pure, the mixture can be kept reasonably clean by going through a portion of the field, after the grain is headed out, and pulling the foreign plants. A large enough patch should be rogued to provide seed for next year's acreage. By fol- lowing this method each second or third year the grain can be kept nearly pare," he declares. Rosen Rye Superior as Fall Pasture for Hogs Rosen rye is coming, to be recog- nized as one of the best late fall pas- ture crops for swine, say the farm crop apeclalista at Iowa State college. Th crop is especially adapted to poor and under-cultivated soil. Rosen rye, which was developed at the Michigan experi- ment station, has been found superlog to other varieties at the Iowa station, Bye finds one of its best uses as fall pasture for swine. For thi purpose it i should be seeded during the latter part of August or in the month of Septem- ber. A seeding of from two and a half' to three bushels per acre Is recom- mended. Rye winters very well and can be used again In the spring as a pasture or harxested for graln. Rye may also be ground and used in II slop as a hog feed. Spray Will Keep Flies Away From Dairy Cows One cent per head per day, invested in spray, will keep the flies away, Temper can be saved and the mllg supply increased by truing the follow- ing home made fly repellent while milking: 4 qt& coal tar dip, 4 qtL fish oil 3 qts. whale oil, 1 qts. oil of tar and 3 pounds laundry soap. Bring the whole up to 80 gallons by adding lukewarm soft water. This amount will spray ten cows" twl daily for forty days.

Essential Features of Self-Feeders for Hogs Pigs that are to be fattened for mar- ket, says Arthur L. Andern, who is in charge of the hog se'-don of the animal husbandry division at Univer- sity farm, will make the most rapid and economical gain if put on a self- feeder. The time required for the hogs to reach the marketable weight is reduced by this system of feeding. Also the labor bill Is cut down mate- rially. The free choice yem, or allowing the ho,s to select feeds to the amount of their own wanting, has been found a satisfactory plan. The wants of the pig are a good criterion of his bod- ily needs. Self-feeders vary a great deal tn minor festur of constrnetiom The tsentlai features, mys Mr. Anderson are: 1. Substantial and rainproof con- truct on. 2. A V-shatd hoppar to Insure a constant supply available to the pigs. 8. A small opening at the base ot th hopper ta control the escape of feed, and adjustable fo the various kinds of feeds. 4. A trough fror'J which the hogs may eat, so constructed as to prevent the waste of feed. A sef-feeder having theae featuree of construction can he made In sn or- dinary farm workshop and will be found very practicable.

"/'he lot that r,celved a full ration of shelled earn and a half ration of sfisge gave a profit per steer of $15.82 while the lot that received no shelled earn and a full raton of silage gave tl profit of g2fl.ll.
