Say, instead, "Where were you last SundayT" and "Where were you going?" This Is one example of many in English in which the speaker or writer uses too many words to express bis meaning. The sentence, "Where am I at?" at tracted much attention about 20 years ago when it was used by a speaker in the bouse of representatives. The member was making a long speech, filled with long sentences. Not much attention was being paid to blni, and he "lost his place" while uttering ono of hts long sentences.

(Prepared by the United State Depart ment of Agriculture.) They are being "shown" down In Missouri and they like It, For the first time tho wool growers of that state have -been marketing their wool co-operatively, and the plan Is proving a great success. At 70 centralization points the wool has been brought in from the rountry for pooling. All told, several thousand growers have shared In the big co operative movement and wool amount ing to millions of pounds has been haudled. In each rose It has been graded as the growers brought It in, an expert grader supplied to the bu reau of markets. United States De partment of Agriculture, rlnsslfylng tho flecres. The work of the grader Is part of an Investigation being car ried on by the bureau In connection with a study of the tentative wool grades which the Department of Agri culture has recently established. It Isn't so much the Immediate in crease In money returns resulting from co-operative marketing that Interests these growers although they promise to fare as well or better than the aver age in this year's market, which Is far from normal but it Is the benefit they expect to derive next year and the years following from their experience of this season. The "showing" In Missouri and elsewhere has consisted in demon strating the value of grading as car ried ou under the co-operative plan. The growers have been quick to see their mistakes and propose not to re pent them. As a result the entire wool Industry Is to profit by a gen eral raising of standards among the growers. - Amazing Variety of Wrappers. The seemingly incidental but real ly very Important matter of wrapping the fleece Illustrates the benefits of co operative wool murketing. One of the regulations which must be observed. If the wool grower Is to suffer no penal ty when his wool is graded, Is that each fleere shall be wrapped In pa per twine or a hard-glazed twine. If other twine is used fibers from it are almost sure to become mixed Into the wool and may cause serious trouble In the spinning machinery, or if these fibers are woven Into fabric they be come conspicuous owtng to the fact that they take the dye differently than the wool fibers. This often results In the cloth having such defects as to be almost worthless. Many wool growers had never un derstood this until It was explained to PLANTING CORN FOR SILAGE Some Farmers Prefer to Grow Crop Thicker Than for Grain Claim. Ing Higher Yields. While sorue men prefer to grow corn for the silo thicker than for grain, claiming that In so doing they get more tons of forage per acre, the majority of farmers plant their silage corn the same as field corn aud in hills. ' ACCOUNT OF FARM BUSINESS Memorandum of Various Items Will Prove Valuable When Calculating Profit and .os. In making a record of. the farm business,- tho Item of labor Income cannot be determined accurately with out some system of accounting. ' Some farmers will require accounts showing the amounts expended for labor, oth ers on tlie amount paid for feed, and ! still others on the amount recelved.for ; crops sold. A memorandum of such ' ,ti.jim 1 m m A k 4h f k StJ, them by the grader, consequently some of tho lots of wool brought Into the warehouses were done up In ways thaf would have been amusing had It Dot meant considerable financial loss to the uninformed growers. Some used binder twine and sisal, others bark, smooth wire, and barbed wire, and still others cotton rags torn In strips. The majority, of rourse, bad their fleeces tied with the proper materials. Incidentally the bureau of markets explains that Missouri Is not alone In the ' matter of being "shown," since wool growers In all sections of the country have discovered that they have been following practices that often seriously penalized them. "No More Wet Wool for Me." But the use of proper wrapping ma terial Is not the only thing which the co-operative wool growers are learn ing. "Shear, the sheep when the wool Is absolutely dry," say the Department of Agriculture and wool experts every where. But many growers apparently do not know of this requirement One grade! in Missouri was amazed to find all of the wool In a certain lot thor oughly soaked. Pressed for an ex planation the grower admitted that be did not know that moisture made any difference In the grade, but realized that jnoisture added to the weight When OBked how be could account for the condition of his fleece, be admit ted that he had allowed his load of wool to stand In the creek all night When he discovered that t" is was re sponsible for his wool being rejected he took the decision smilingly and with a "Never again I" drove away. Burs Cause Trouble. One class of "rejects" In wool grad ing is known as "burry." Many farm ers have become Indignant when some of their fleeces were thrown into the burry class. But In each case the grnder has been able to show them by careful examination that the con demned fleeces rontained large num bers of burs sometimes 50 or 60. Every such experience has sent the grower back to his farm resolved to "clean up those burs." "Next year you'll see an Improvement In my wool," more than one man has told the grader. The bureau of markets Is prepared to furnish Information to any person Interested In learning more about co operative wool marketing as well as co-operative marketing In numerous other fields in which, success has been equally pronounced. Items will prove valuable when .the time comes to calculate the year's business. The matter of farm ac counting, according to the specialists who have studied the problem for the United States' Department of Agricul ture, Is not dependent upon any par ticular form or blank book the real secret of success lies in knowing what accounts to keep and how to make use of them. Farmer's Bulletin CCJ. suggests the sort of accounts mo8tt needed. Cause Digestive Troubles. Overfeeding the sow Is certain to cause digestive troubles with the small pigs. For the first few days a slop of wheat shorts with a little tankage or linseed meal Is the best feed. Turkeys Relish Grasshopper. Farmers troubled with grasshoppers can make no better Investment than a nice flock of turkeys. Greatest Enemy of Farmer. The jrreutest enemy of the farmer Is WASTE.
