THOUGHTS FOR THE FARM. The uestion of Mixed or Specialty FArm- ing Intelligently Discussed In Its Various Phases. During the last few years of depres- sion many farmers have branched out In new lines with the hope of finding omething more profitable than the general farming so commonly prac- ticed. As a rule they have not found the desired profit, and have returned to the old system, more firmly con- vineed that specialties do not pay. In this they are undoubtedly mistaken. The evidence on wlfich they base their opinion is derived from only one or two years: experience with a new crop. In the first place their land may not have been adapted to the crop tried. Ann agian, ithe farmer not knowing the special-requirements of the crop, fails in this way. Special crops, with the general farm- er, usually prove fmlures. While there is ranch truth in the old sav about putting all one's eggs in one basket, yet it is much easier to watch one basket of eggs than to put one egg in half a dozen baskets. Tile farmer who keeps five cows, raises two colts a year, grows a few tols of hay, a few acres of wheat vnd corn, keeps half a dozen sheep, 25 fowls, a pair of dneks a hen turkey and an old sow, has a small garden, a few potatoes and 50 cabbages, generally spends all the pleasant days breaking the colts, and finds that the cows cat all the hay, the chickens the garden and the hen turkey the cabbage, while he does nol )reduce enoagh of any crop to pay to sell, and what hc does grow goes to feed his stock. The trouble with mixed farming is that the farmer does not produce enough of any one crop to call the buyer to him. He has so little that it does not pay to go to the city and sell it himself, nor does he post himself on the market price. As a consequence hc takes what he gets and wishes he had more. If it is 50 or 100 pounds of wool he thinks another buyer will not come his way for such a small lot, while the buyer, knowing thls, offers several ,cents under the market price, and then uses this sale as an opening wedge with other and heavier wool growers in the community. In case tile farmer sends his stuff to market he has only a small quantity of each grade and the salesman tinds it hard to real- ize on a mixed lot of only a few pack- ages. While mixed farming is not profita- ble I do not wish to advGeate raising special crops only. This would cer- tainly prove more nnprofitable for the general mass of farmers. But there are many farms which arc particularly adapted to certain crops and where the farmer has mastered the details of any such crop, he may with great profit grow it to the exclusion of anything else. Tile farmer should find out what his land is best adapted to, then master tim details thoronghly and grow this crop for all there is in it, no matter whether it be squasbes m" beans, cu- cumbers or peppermint, sheep or tur- keys, tobacco or hops, or anything, else which will pay a good return for the money and labor invested. Specialty farming, as opposed to mixed farming, means more particu- larly special lines of farming and not growing one special crop only. It may be fruit growing, grain raising, truck- ing or market gardening stock rais- ing or dairying with its accompani- ments of hogs nod calves. If the farmer grows fruit tlie crop shouh] not be all peaches or strawberries, but the farm silould be devoted largely to fruit of all kinds. By starting wih straw- berries the summer will be con- tinued with raspberries, cherries, currants, gooseberries, dewberries, blackbcrrics, peaches and plums, while the fall will find bin busy witi pears and grapes, and applcs will keep the work going half through the winter. In such a line of farming a man's thoughts are conccn orated larlze- ly in one direction and his energies are expended where they will accomplish tiae most. If he tries to keep a duiry and produce hay in addition to fruit growing hc will fimi that the cows must be milked at the same time the strawberries need picking, while a meadow of hay must be watched and raked when tim cherries are fit to pick. The trucker will not grow cabbage entirely, nor will the dairyman keep nothing but cows, the poultryman raise anything but broilers, nor the grain grower give his whole attention to wheat. But he should select a line of crops which will nick one with the other and not conflict, and produce enough of one of two things to wield some iniiuence iu the market. This is a broad subject for discussion in a single paper, bnt enough can be said to show the folly of trying to grow cverytifing profitab] you one frm. The thankfulness of many writers in wel- coming a return to the good old times of "'peace and poverty," and mixed farming is more moonshine than any- thing else. Edwin C.

The Alabama Agricultural Experi. mcnt station has recently issued a bul- h;tin on ' eanuts. Cowpeas and Swee Potatoes as Food for Pigs." Summariz. ing the experiments, Mr. J. F. Duggar, agriculturist of the station, says: "Spanish peanuts, when harvested by young pigs, were converted into pork worth, at three cents per pound, 18.34 per acre of peanuts, when all condi- tions were favorable In another field, with only half a stand of plants, the value of the pork from an acre of Spanish peanuts was $10.94 and $7.83 in two experiments. Under favor- able conditions pork (llve weight) was produced at the rate of 1,4:]6 pounds per acre of peauuts, sup- plemented by 37.8 bushels of coru. With half a stand of lclants, an acre of Spanish peanuts produced, unaided, pork at the rate of 261 pounds per acre, and at the rate of 840 pounds per acre when the acre of peanuts wa supplu- merited wlth 35.6 Uushels of corn. When ed to pigs in pens only 2.8 pounds of unhulled Spanish peanuts were required to produce each pound of increase in live weight. This ia equal to 9 pounds of increase, worth 7 cents, as a return for each busiel of peanuts eaten. live weight made by similar shoats fed exclusively ou corn. The cowpea crop was above the average, and its value in three- cent pork, after subtractlnff the cost of th corn fed, was $1o.65 per acre. Shoats fed in pens gained more rapidly in weight on a ration of ground cow- peas and corn than on ground corn alone. In effect. 5.2 pounds of this mixed food was equal to 8.06 pounds of ground corn. "Three pounds of sweet potatoes proved decidedly iuferior to one pound of cornmeal. Cowpeas fed with corn did not injuriously affect thequa]ity i of pork or lard. Peanuts, when fed witi corn, greatly softcncd the pork and lard. The softening effcct of pea- nuts was still greater when thcycon- stituted the sole food. This softening effect of peanuts was not corrected by feeding exclusively on corn for a month befm'e the date of slaughtering. "The experiments recorded in thi., bulletin were begun September 8, 1897, and concluded February 16, 189S. All the animals used were growing pigs, varying in size at the beginning of tha different experiments from pigs just weaned to half-grown shoats. The re- suits obtained apply to the class of animals here used and not necessurily to nearly mature fattening hogs. In every expemment an abundance of ash material wa insured by a daily sup- ply of hardwood ashes, unlcachcd and sail. The weighing of pigs and of food, of which more than 2,500 were made during the course of thesccx- perimcnts, aad other deLails, wcreat. tended to by Mr. T. U. Culvcr, farm superintendent." Muklt,g Mnure. In order to make the most manure oil our farms we must grow cl,,er in ro- tatiou with wheat, corn and potatoes. i would try to fret a heavy crop of clover to grow, thcn secrre this for hay, then plow under the second growth to make vegetable mold for the succeeding crop, whether i be pota- toes or corn. Therecan b6 no doubt of cIover sod being the hess for potatoes. This has been demonstrated by the best potato growers in the country. We must positively save all fertilizing materials of our farms. In doing this the old, leaky stable floors must be replaced by those that are tight. Plenty of absorbents must be used in the stablcs at all times, there- by saving all fertilizing material. This must bc kept under cover to prevent loss In the absenee of a cover I wouhl haul direct to the field where it is wanted. This being done, practically no waste is had. The manure should never be sprea l on deep snow, but on laml that is nearly bare. For rotation with wheat 1 wouhl sow after potatoes. First thoroughly pre- pare the seed bed by cxtra culture, ap- plying well decomposed manure for a dressing, if this is lacking 1 would apply the ground bone of commerce. This will insure a good catch of clo- ver, which would best be sown in early spring, in rotation with corn 1 wouhl apply the manure in the fall, no mut- ter how coarse this may be. When the plat is plowed in eariy sprmff the win- ter leaching of snow or rain will bu advantageous, thereby securing a larffo crop of corn. ] plowing' under the, coarse manure, it "vill have a tendency to make the'soil loose as r,;etl as rich. Extra culture liberates the plant fdod stored u'in the soil. 5,'o labor is lost in making the seed bed title. Then ap- ply to it a good, rich fertilizer of some kind.--C. W Kellog, in Gentleman Farmer. Keep tl, e Sheep Fat. tlavin considerable experlencc in handling wool, 1 offer your readers the Following points: There is a very marked difference between wool grown on a poor sheep und wool grown on a fat sheep. The fat sheep's wool is worth about double that of a poor sheep, pouud for pound. An experi- enced person could separate the fleeces, the poor from the fat, as fllst a., hc could hahdle them. Take a iiLtlc wool in your hand, press it into a wad, then let it spring out. If grown on a fat sheep it will spring out to its full extent like iudia rubber; if grown on a poor sheep it will spring ou par of the way and crawl a little farther, but not the full limit. The crawling m a sure indication of poverty. When sheep are very poor the wool is brittle, and not much better thau shoddy. ] am the son and grandson of wool and fur hat-makers, and was raised in a hat shop myself, and know what I am talking about.
