IL Farmer, in the Farm and Ranch. The county or state funds cannot build a gravel road to every farmhouse. That would be lmiracticable- Therefore, the farmer must look around for an economical way to do It himself. When we think of the many creeks, with beds and beds of gravel waiting to be utilized into a good road, we wonder why there are no more good gravel roads around every farm. The work can be d.ne entirely dur- ing wet and muddy weather if neces- sary, and in this way the farmer can have good roads by putting In work on it at times when he could not be doing work in the field. Of course, it could not be expected to build any great length of road in one or two days, nn- less the farmer has considerable help. But hx first grading up the road, or a par, of it, uring one wet spell, finish- Ing it the next one, and then put- ting the gravel from the creek bed on It each succeeding rain thereafter, un- til the road is up in first-class condi-* finn. a lot may be accomplished. Even though the gravel supply might not be enough to build the re- quired lenh of road. one needs only to wait until the next rain, and whan the water has receded, he will find a new gravel bed waitii:g for him. To figure the saving a good gravel road v,x>uld be to each farm would be an impossibility, for its good will go on so long as the farm is operated, and the road is kept up, which can be done very easily by filling In each weak place with more gravel from the creek, as it is needed. So economical is this kind of road, that wherever there is a creek with gravel beds, there is no excuse for the live. progressive farmer not having a gravel road all around his farm. By co-operation among the farmers, a gravel road can be extended to the county or state highways, or to the I next closest town. ltowever, that is a question that would bring In other points, and this Is an article to apply 'to the individual farmer who would like to have a good gravel road for I his own use on and around his farm. It will be the means of hls being able to do hauling in muddy weather, when tt would be Impossible to do it, did he not have a gravel road. and this alone will be worth much In dol- lar and cents in the course of a year In getting prtJducts or machinery un- der shelter when the weather requires it. As this Is an opportunity to have a good road with no Investment except work, every farmer should give It seri- ous consideration, and make arrange- ments to work on the suggestion. Successful Road Repair - Ideas Tried in Kansas Salvaging old pavements is an Im- portant factor In the work of the high- way engineer, and various methods have been adopted In the different lo- calities. In Kansas. C. W. Boulson, city engineer of 101a, has worked out a method of salvaging concrete pave- ments by resurfaclng with asphalt. In 1912 the clty of Iola laid a six-lnch cement concrete pavement on East Jackson avenue in the residentlal see- tlom After bein subjected to traffic for six mmlths the pavement began to show signs of disintegration. Trans- verse and longitudinal cracks devel- oped and where these cracks crossed traffic gTadua]ly wore holes in the lvement. According to .Air. Boulson, the crack- hUg was not due to faulty material or workmanship, but to expansion and contraction with temperature changes. It was decided that the most economi- cal procedure was to overhaul the old concrete lmvement and to use it as a foundation for a pavement of asphaltic concrete. All loose material was re- moved from the old pavement and all weak spots were cut out. Holes which penetrated to the entire depth of the old pavemenL or nearly so. were filled with new concrete. Pot-holes and large holes which did no extend to the sub- soil were filled with asphaltic binder. Finally, an asphaltic concrete surfaea two Inches thick was laid and the street immediately opened to traffic The rejuvenated pavement has given excellent service. Cost of Operation. At the request of the United tates bureau of public roads and the na- tional research council, data regarding the cost of operation of motor vahl- cle ha various sections of the country and on various types of reads are be- ing gathered by the American Automo- bile aeclatlon and Its affiliated claim. Bad Road Conference. t conference of automotive exper was recently held by the United States army ordnance department at Spring Lake, N. J. for the purpose of devel- oping "croseountry carrying veM- cies'" mltable for use by all branches of the army In operating zones not pmble by motortrucks. Remove Billboards and Signs. The county court of Kansas Cty, Me., has ordered the removal of blik boards and slg from the county high- ways. Cost Per Mile. The average Cost per mile for eenstrnetlon lu the United States, at cording to statistles from the bureau of public roads, since 1916 has beeu 16,8"/5. not Including the cost of right of way or of bridge Wet 8pota on Htlleldl. Many hllllflde fields have ringy o wet spots which delay preparation and dlng. These may be ditched out thu make la0rOuO Increase Expected Because of Larger Number of hinter Vehicles. (]P1rrd by the United States Depetrtmenl of Asriculture.) The bureau of Imbllc roads of the United States Department of Agricul- ture calls attention to the fact that highway grade-crossing accidents tn- rinse to increase. The interstate com- merce commission reports that in the final quarter of 1922, 517 persona were killed and 1,710 injured at grade- crossings, an increase of 16 fatalities and 105 injuries In comparison with the same period of the previous year. Similar increases are reported in oth- er quarters. It has been suggested that an In- crease is to be expected since the number of motor vehicles and high- way traffic is Increasing. but this I should be the reason for additional] preventive measures rather tlum sat-j I Isfactlon with the situation. ] To Prevent Aceldentl. ! There is only oue safest way to prevent aecldents where highways and railways intersect. That Is by a com- plete separation of the grades by means of subways or viaducts. The-e has been agitation for legislation in s number of tates to require all users of the highways to stop before cross- Lug a railroad track. A few states have enacted such laws. The gen- eral application of mch a law cov- ering all of the railroad crossings in any state leads to absurdities and un- ncessary. Inconvenience. For ex- ample, one of the principal state high- ways leading west out of Raleigh, N. C., where such a law is ha force, crosses a branch line of a railroad running Into the state fair grtmnds. This switch track Is used for only a few days each year at the time of the state fair, but under the law all the traffic over one of the principal hlgbways In the state must stop at thl crossing 865 days per year. I Temporary Expedients. ] Such laws should be regarded as I temporary expedients only. Hundreds lof branch line railroads carry only ]a small percentage of the pamenger i trnffic now carried by the main line i hlghway which they cross. If either traffic Is to be halted at the crossing It should be the rail traffic Right of way is given the most Important traf- fic on the railroads. This Is a fun- damental principle of operation, end this same principle should be recog- nized by the state In making any laws with reference to stopping traffic at railway and highway Intersections. Un- doubtedly trunk line railways should be given right of way, and the high- way traffic stopped, but branch line railway traffic lies in a different cate- gory entirely. The highway traffic over important state trunk lines should not be stopped at branch line l-allway crongs. Rather. the hafrequent trains should be stopped before lug such highways. The agitation for stopping highway traffic at railway crossings, however, Is having Its effeet in rapidly crystal- lizing public sentiment against all grade crossing& and this will lead to the only right solution of the mntter, that is. the sel)artit)n of tile grades In the construction of federal-aid roads the bureau of public roads ba adopted the pollcy of elhninatlng grade-crossings wherever practieaide. if posslble by relocation, otherwise b means .of an underpass or overhead crossing and to this end an engineer- lng Investigation is made of every crossing and a great many have al- retdy been eliminated. Costly strne- tares are required 'but there Is no doubt that the Idicy has resulted in the saving of many lives. Interesting Figures on Agricultural Products The farmer still has use for the mul- tiplication table, despite the ups and downs in the agricultural situation, according to some figures Just issued by the United States Department ot Agriculture. For example, the out- put of skim milk powder has doubled In the last five years; the number of cow-testlng associations has been doubled in the last six years; the quantity of ice cream produced has doubled In the last twelve years; and creamery butter in fifteen years. If whole-milk production continues at the same rate as during the last five years, It will double In twenty-three and a half years and pure bred cattle, if they continue to Increase as In the laST two decades, will double in thirty years. The population of the United States comes next, having doubled in the last thirty-nine years; the number of milk cows on farms has doubled In the last forty-four years; factory cheese production has doubled in for- ty-six years; and the average yield of milk per cow, if continued as m the last five years, will double in sixt$ years. Three Big Essentials Make Poultry Success Poultry success is fonnded on three big essentials. Regardless of the par- tlcular specialty in poultry husbandry which one engages in, there are three big factors that control the results- The first is good stock, the sectmd, proper housing, and the third, correct feeding. The three are of equal Im- portance. They are each dependent upon the other. Neglect of one means failure. Poor stock properly housed and correctly fed will amount to little, while on the other hand. good stock Improperly housed and fed becomes equally poor. Adhere to all three es- sentials, use common sense and sys- tem and your success will be narrated. POTATO Blight Is Destructive Disease of Bean Plant One of the commonest and most destructive diseases of the bean plant is the blight. It Is a germ disease and difficult to control. The germs are. carried into the patch on infested and treating the seed with corrosive sublimate is recommended. Spraying with bordeaux will help prevent the spread of the disease. IS FOREMOST VEGETABLE Government Reports Show Farmer How to SelL l'eitred I th Unitd tate Dpa4qnuent of Agriculture.) The potato is foremost In value among our vegetables. It Is the chief money crop of large areas, an Impor- tant slapte in many other.& and Is groom for home supply and local mar- kets in ahnost every farming district. The wise or unwise marketing of the potato crop may easily mean a differ- ence of millions of dollars ha the farm- era' Income In a year, according to the United State Department of Ag- riculture. This is particularly true of the late or main crop of potatoes, which comprises about four*fifths of the total In'OdUCtion. Potato crop and market news sup- piled by the Unid 8tata Depart- met of Agriculture includes crop and market reports and mgmmarles of many klndn published at eight field statians located ha the prominent shipping see- tion and at about a dOsen market station& Including the Whingtou of- flee.

The pro- portion of stocl held by dealers on January I has often proved an Indica- tion of the course of the late inter and spring markets. Question of Successful Late-Potato Marketing The chief advantage of the late po. tote over Its earlier brethren Is lt kt%ptng quality whlch permits Its al and use all winter and through the early summer the following year, sayfi the United States Department of Ag- riculture. This involves special meth- ods. The whole question of succea ful late-potato marketing can be summed up nnder four heads, accord- Ing to department workers- They are: (1) Cartul planning from planting time to day of mile; (2) full use of crop and market news: (8) good han- dling, grading, and loading;, and (4) redlnmm to learn from the methods of other potato growing sections.

Only healthy, contented hens produce eggs ha paying numbers. While vn range most hens both lay and pay, because conditions are such that they are per- fectly healthy. Sanitation then takes care of itself and constant exercise, coupled with natural selection of food having widely differing properties, gives ideal conditions for high pro- duction. Because conditions differ whlely in these particulars during the seasons when fowls are confined, re- suits are not as satisfactory. '17o counteract unsatisfactory re- suits," says A. C. Smltih poultry hus- bandry leader at University Farm, "proper sanitary measures must be practiced. Begin by putting the young flock in a clean house this fall. Clean and disinfect the house thorougnty. Remove ad burn all floor and nest litters. Remove all fittings, such as nest, roost roosting platforms, and water stand ; clean and paint with a good liquid disinfectant. Kerosene to which has been added a little strong, crude carbolic acid serves the purpose, as do several commercial disin- fectants. "Brush dowtt the walls and ceiling, remove as much of the old earth as seems necessary, paint the walls with the same disinfectant as the fittings and put in fine or sandy loam to the depth of four toeslx inches. Replace the fittings, an(i let the house air well for a week or more before putting in the young stock." Proper Arrangement of Roosts for Hen Flock Roosts for chickens should be wide enough to support them; narrow roosts cause cramid positions and crooked breast-bones. Tile best roosts are scantling of 2 by 3 or 2 by 4, broad side uIx with rounded edges. They should be smooth and movable. Roosts need not be very high. Too high roosts cause bumble-foot when the chickens y down on a hard sur- face. Heavy breeds require lower roosts than the light hreeds. From one and a half to two feet high is a good heigiit. Roosts should not be ar- ranged like stairs. Chickens llke to roost on the highest point; the stair arrangement means overcrowding on the upper renal Plan to Clean Up Badly Mite-Infested Building To clean up a badly mite-infested building, proceed as follows: Sweep and dust thoroughly, rst removing everything removable. Scrub with washInu l,wder and water. I'aint the roosts and sul,l,ors for the ro,)sts with bested carbolineum. Next. spray the nests and every other bit of woodwork that harbors vermin" or .might do so, with etude creosote and distillate, one gallon of each to the mixture. If there were no mltes on the walls or floors whitewash would make a good spray for them. In either case the fowls should be shut out of the house until thorougtdy dry. Breeds for Production 0f White-Shelled Eggs Poultry of the Mediterranean or egg breeds are bet suited for prrluction of white-shelled eggs. Representatives of this cass are bred largely for the production of eggs rather than for meat production. Among the popular breeds of this class are: Leghorn. Minorca, Ancona and Andaluslan. One of the outstanding characteristics of the egg breeds is the fact that they are classed as nonltter. That Is, as a rule they do not become broody and batch their eggs. When fowls of this cioss are kept, artificial incibatlon and brooding are usually employed. Oyster Shells Are Good to Form Shells of Eggs Ordinarily, the hen does not con- same enough lime to form the shell of eggs If she is laylng abundantly un- I something besides the ord|natT grain feeds is accessible to her. Oy. ster shells are yery good for this pur- pose. A box of crushed shells may be placed before the fowlL allowing them to eat at will. Old mortar and fin gravel are also useful in supplyin8 l|me. - - - ------'5-  __- - -= -- - POULTRY NOTES Plenty of bone snd mu::ie-formlng rather than fatten)ug feed Is needed for growing poultry. Leave the fatten- ing btmintqm alone until near Illing time. 8 urkey hens are probably the best breeders between the ages of two and fle or slx years. Pullets that are underld, lackin| vigor, deformed or hatched too late for winter production, should be culled. Each yar a nice little profit could be made by the average farmer by giving hbl hens a little study, and tmIl- lg out the poor layer, thu allowing more room for the good laverL saving on feed, labor, time and closer atten- tion.
