It must be taken bold of at once.
Stunted and falling crops, choked by
weeds, should be pulled out at onca,
weeds and all. and burned, and the
ground plowed or spaded, and replant

profitable It might have been to have
planted only half the space, and work'
ed It well, than to have scattered the
available labor over the entire ground
and do nothing to perfection.
A garden with rows 11? rows of
all the delicious vegetables of mid'
summer and not a. weed to be found.
Is Indeed a pleasant picture. But how
few of that class are found! Instead
of choice vegetables there are rank

John Burrows, the well-known scien
tist. In regard to cows giving down
their milk says: Many persons think
that giving down or holding up the
milk by the cow Is a voluntary act
In fact, they fancy the udder as a
vessel filled with milk, and that the
cow releases or withholds It Just as
she chooses. But the udder Is a
manufactory; it is died with blood,
from which the milk Is manufactured
while you milk. This process Is con
trolled by the cow's nervous system.
When she Is excited or In any way
disturbed, as by strangers or by tak
ing away her calf or any other cause,
the process Is arrested and the milk
will not flow. The nervous energy
goes elsewhere. The whole process Is
as Involuntary as is digestion In man
and Is disturbed or arrested In about
the same way.
Retailers are necessary according to
present methods of doing business and
until farmers organize a selling force
of their own middlemen will continue
to toll the farmers' grist as thorough
ly as the traffic will bear. Teaches
may rot on the ground In Missouri
while selling for 2 cents each In Chi
cago, but the farmer in Missouri Is
helpless because he has no represen
tative In the market center. The time
will come when farmers will, have an
agent at each central point to handle
farm products and distribute them
either to the consumer or retail gro
cer. When that time comes farmers
will come nearer getting what (hey
work for. It Is Just as necessary to
sell right as to farm right. Agricul

The prodigal waste of timber during

Horned cattle and horned sheep are
rapidly disappearing. Many of the
cattle bred and fed In the corn belt
are hornless. Breeda of this kind are
growing In popularity. In the moun
tainous country and on tha plains
wild cattle needed long horns for the
protection of themselves and their
young. Now, however, with the plains
thickly settled and with few wild ani
mals the cattle do not need horns.
Among the hornless breeds are the

Irrigation Congress Will Atk for Im
provement of National Resources.
Arthur Hooker, secretary of the
board of control of the National IrriRa
tion congress, will present a resolution
for approval by that organization at ita
seventeenth aession in Spokane August
9 to 14, memorializing congress to
issue 3 per cent gold bonds, running
10U years, to the amount of 15,000,
000,000, or as much thereof as may ba
necessary for tba following specific
One billion dollars for drainage of
overflowed and awamp lands, thus re
claiming an area equal to 100,000
Ona billion dollars for the reclama
tion by irrigation of 40,000,000 acres
of arid and semi-arid lands now partly
or wholly waste.
One billion dollars to construct and
improve deep waterways, to develop
thousands of miles of territory now
without adequate transportation facili
ties. Ona billion dollars for good roads
and national highways, for tha lack of
which the lass to the farm area of the
United States is approximately $500,
One billion dollars for forest protec
tion, reforestation and conservation of
the forest resources, thus assuring tim
ber and lumber supplies for centuries
"Five billions of dollars is an enor
mous sum, but it is no mora than is
actually required to carry out tha gi
gantic scheme in developing millions
of acres of Isnds in varioua parts of tha
United States now absolutely worth
less," said Mr. Hooker in explaining
the plan. "Congress will not be asked
to appropriate a penny. The returns
from tha improvements would pay off
the bonds. Tha government would
simply act as a banker, aa it does now
for the various irrigation projects.
The bond Usue would provide ample
funds as required to carry out tbs work
in the several divisions, at the same
time giving the best possible collateral
to those investing in these securities.
"Government figures bear out the
statement that there ia enough good
land overflowed in Minnesota, Wiscon
sin, Kansas, Nebraska, Louisiana,
Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi
to make an area as large aa the state
of Missouri, or more than 44,000,000
acres, while in the Eastern, Central
and Western states there is more than
as much more, or about 100,000,000
acres in all. At a conservative esti
mate of $25 an acre, the sale of this
reclaimed land would justify the ex
penditure of $2,500,000,000, or about
150 per cent more than is required to
drain it This land would support
from 2,000,000 to 3,000,000 popula
tion. "Approximately 40,000,000 acrea of
lads in western and Southweatern
states are adapted to irrigation, wLich,
if reclaimed at an average cost of $25
an acre, would be worth not less than
$200 an acre, or a total of $8,000,000,
000, and provide homes for more than
8,000,000 perjons. The economic value
of irrigation car not be measured in
dollars and cents, but crops of from
$500 to $1,000 an acre ara not rare in
the irrigated districts. There are al
ready 14,000,000 acrea under irriga
tion and the Reclamation service esti
mates it will have reclaimed 2,000,000
acres, at a cost not exceeding $70,000,
000. before the close of 1911.
"The construction and improvement
of the deep waterways required to pro
vide better and cheaper transportation
facilitiea is, I believe, a 100 per cent
investment, from the fact that two
thirds of the bulky freight could be
shipped by water routes, at a cost to
the ahipper of not more than one-sixth
of the present rail rates. The import
ance of this becomes apparent when it
is remembered that the food question
is becoming a world problem.
"The state of New York is expend
ing $101,000,000 to enlarge the Erie
canal, and $100,000,000 is the amount
required to improve the Missouri river
from a point about 40 miles west of
Yellowstone park to where it meets the
Mississippi river, 2.547 miles. Then
there is the projected waterway from
Lake Michigan to the Gulf of Mexico
and scores of others necessary to cheap
and better transportation facilities.
Millions of dollars will be saved annu
ally to tha people of the United States
by the completion of these works.
"The maintenance of the greatest
water way in the world, composed of
the Great Lakes, on which tha govern
ment of tha United States has expend
ed more than $90,000,000 for harbors
and connecting channels, presents an
argument in favor of the scheme to de
velop thousands of miles of territory in
the Missouri and other valleys. Tba
other projects outlined in the foregoing
are of equal if not greater importance,
and with proper backing they can be
carried out successfully.
"No one questions the statement
that good roads have a high money
value to the farmers of the nation, and
it may ba said that this alone is suffi
cient to justify the cost of their con
struction as rapidly as practicable un
der an efficient, economical and equit
able system of highway improvement.
The big points in favor of this expend
iture Is the economy of time and force
in transportation between farm and
market, enabling the growers to take
advantage of fluctuations in baying and
selling, aa well as enhancing the value
of real estate.
"It is estimated that the average
annual loss from poor road is 76 eenta
an acre, while the estimated average
increase resulting from improving all j
the public roads is $9. The losses in
five years would aggregate $2,432 for j
every section of land, or more than j
enough to improve two miles of public
highway. The necessity of good roads
is obvious, as it would enhance the
valoe of each sect ioa of land about
$5,760, or more than double the eati
tnaUd cost of two sailes of Improved
highway, which constitutes the quota
for 640 acres of land.
"The value of our forests was never
better appreciated than today. Within

Western states near'y 124.000,000
acres are covered with woodland, of
value for fuel, fence posts and other i
purposes essential to the success of the
farmers. There are also 97,000,000
acres covered with heavy forests hav
ing commercial value for timber and
logs for sawmills, also hundreds of
thousanda of acres of timber lands in
other parts of the United States. Re
forestation and conservation of the
vast resources are necessary to provide
future generations with timber and
lumber supplies. The government is
expending large amounts of money
every year to protect its forests from
fires, yet expert lumbermen say that
more atanding timber is destroyed by
flames annually than is converted into
merchantable lumber by the sawmills."
Mr. Hooker said it is likely that his
resolution will be presented to tha var
ious interests of the irrigation con
gress for discussion and will afterward
be incorporated in a memorial to the
United Sites congress. It is also pur
posed to have a large delegation, com
posed of representatives of every state
and territory in the Uni n, push the
measure for adoption. The work of
enlisting the support of the people in
terested in the various projects will be
taken up immediately after the clore
of the irrigation congress with the
view to concerted action.
