Modern Agriculture
XII. The Selection and Care of Farm Machinery
Agricultural Di-Oiiion. Iotua Slat Collect
Copyright. 1000, by American Ptcm Association
TITE methods of farming followed
today are made possible only
by the use of modern labor
saving machinery. The farm
band of today needs brains more than
muscles. The ability to handle a com
plicated machine successfully Is more
valuable thun (he power to do a hard
day's inauual labor.
With the coming of Improved ma
chinery the problem of what to buy
and what to get alons without has be
come a serious nue. The farmer has
more money tied up In machinery than
in any ime thing besides bis land.
UflvltiK too much machinery Is nearly
an bad as baring too little.
What is
uccatu as u him; ftcievruuu.
It is always well to do a little figur
ing before buying a new machine. Di
viding the cost of the Implement by
the number of years It may be reason
ably expected to Inst will give the
amount that must be charged to de- i way of raking in bunches nnd plteh
preclatlon each year. Add to this an j lng It on to the wagon by hand is too
allowance for repairs, storage and slow and laborious. A much better
each year's share of the Interest, nnd plan Is to rake the liny Into w indrows
you will have the yearly cost of the with a side delivery rake and gather
machlue. A little further figuring will it up with a hay loader. Where the
show whether the benefit received
from It in a year will warrant this
Machinery may be roughly divided
Into five classes tillage, planting, hay
ing, harvesting and miscellaneous. Of
the many tillage Implements there are
some that are absolutely necessary on
any farm. Among these are the plows.
For the farmer on a quarter section a
sixteen Inch riding plow will be all
that is needed for the field work. In
addition It may be well to have a
cheap walking plow for plowing the
garden, turning out potatoes and for
use in case of an emergency. A gang
plow requires too many horses to be
practicable on the average 100 acre
farm. On larger farms, where plenty
of horses are available, a gang plow
will save the time of an extra man. It
is a good plan to have the plow sup
plied wrth two or three moldboards
of different slants. A steep mold
board pulverizes the soil more and for
this reason Is a good thing to use on
stubble land. On clover sod, however,
a longer moldboard should be used in
order to lessen the draft.
One of the most Important tillage
Implements Is the disk. No other ma
chine will pulverize the soli so quick
ly or thoroughly. The use of a tongue
truck a small two wheeled arrange
mentunder the rear end of the
tongue is of considerable advantage
in tuking the weight off the horses'
necks. Solid wheel disks pulverize
the ground more thoroughly than
spaders or cutaways.
A good harrow is a necessity on any
farm. The flexible type Is best for all
conditions, as it gets down Into the
hollows and rides over trash better
than will a solid frame barrow.
Spring tooth harrows, rollers and
weeders all have their special uses,
but can hardly be said to be neces
sary on the average quarter section.
Next In order come the cultivators,
nnd there are so many styles of these
that choosing is a difficult matter. The
most Important part of the cultivator
Is the shovels. A happy medium is
struck in the six shovel type. The
shovels on this can be run deep
enough to loosen the soli well the
first two times over the field and can
later be set shallow enough to avoid
serious Injury to the spreading roots.
If you are In the corn business ex
tensively enough to afford two seta
of cultivators It is well to have spe
cial surface machines for the last two
cultivations. Some companies make
surface blades which can be attached
In place of the shovels when so de
sired. In the bands of a careful man
the two row cultivator does good and
rapid work.
First In the line of planting ma
chines come the seeders. While cost
ing a little more at first, there Is no
better Implement for sowing amall
grain than the disk drill The disks
cut through cornstalks and other
trash, and the seed is deposited evenly
and at, a uniform depth. The result
ing eveuness of stand will cause an
Increased crop sufficient to pay the
entire cost of the drill In a year or
In selecting a corn planter the run-
ner type ot furrow opener is prefet
able to the disk. Bluce the latter H
hard to guide. The essential point in
planters, however. Is the drop. If yu
lire lu the habit of grading your wed
corn carefully so tb 't the kernels tire
nil about the sHiiirlize the cile drop
plates will give a more even uliind
than will the round hole drop. Plant
ers in which the plntex nre turned by
a chain from the uxlu nnd the wire
used only to open the shoe lire surer
to drop every time than those In
which all the work is done by the
There are two baying implement
1 that nre absolutely essential, the mow-
of atirl tlm pnL-a U.i nuit tn ttl.-lr n
wide cut mower. Six feet is a goid
width. The extra draft amounts to
little, and considerable time will be
saved In going over the field.
Where much Imv is ninde the old
j hay is nut In the barn a net of double
harpoon forks will make short work
of the unloading. If it is to be stacked
some form of stacker will save u groat
denl of hard work.
The most important harvesting ma
chine is the self binder. The binder is
i no. xxrv loading the makube sciiem.-
the most complicated u'-.Thino on the
farm and the one most likely to get
out of order. In buying n binder sim
plicity of construction, ease of adjust
ment nnd hnndiness of oiling nre im
portant points to look after. A tongue
truck Is an attachment that should go
with every binder. This Is the only
means of eliminating side draft that
has yet been discovered. A tongue
truck is rather expensive, bill so are
sore Kiiouiuers nnu neeus on tne nurses
nt harvest time.
Where much stock Is kept the corn
binder is a necessary implement. By
cutting a large share of the corn and
using it as fodder or sllnge much feed
Is saved that would otherwise be wast
ed. About -40 per cent of the entire
feeding value of the corn plant is In
the stalk. When these are left stand
ing in the field the greater part of this
feed Is wasted. The shocked fodder
may profitably be run through a shred
der before feeding. This will husk the
corn and leave the stalks in the best
shape to be fed or used for bedding.
One of the most important of the
miscellaneous Implements is the wind
mill. No farmer can nfford to pump
water for his stock by hand when the
wind will do It for nothing after the
mill has once been put up. Iu erecting
a windmill be sure that it Is put on a
' high enough tower so thnt surround
ing trees or buildings will not cut off
the wind. A mill which is geared bnck
so that the wheel makes three revolu
tions or so to one stroke of the pump
will run in a lighter wind than will
tlie straight geared type. A three
legged tower Is Just as strong as a
four nnd considerably cheaper.
A machine that is ulniost indispensa
ble on a stock farm Is the gasoline en
gine. The original cost of these en
gines Is reasonable, and the amount
required for fuel and repairs is small.
With a gasoline engine to furnish the
power to run a sheller and grinder
feed can be cheaply and easily pre
pared for the stock. The engine will
also saw wood. If you are fortunate
enough to have any to saw, run the
silage cutter, grindstone, separator,
churn and washing machine. It may
also replace the windmill as a source
of power for pumping.
In selecting a gasoline engine be
sure to get one large enough to do the
required work easily, remembering nt
the same time that where much light
work Is to be done a small engine
will Uo it with much less gasoline
than will be used by a large one
This objection to a large engine can
be overcome to a large extent by so
arranging the work that several ilght
machines may be run at the same
time. The most reliable type of en
gine is the four cycle, in which there
are two revolutions of the flvwheel to
one explosion. The water system of
cooling Is the most efficient, though
air cooled engines are all right for
light work.
Another necessary machine of tbe
tock farm s the manure spreader.
Not only does this save a great deal
of work, hut It also applies the ma
nure more evenly and will cover a
greater amount of ground with a giv
en quantity of manure. There should
