The plan of treatment has proved very successful where it has been used, according to M. W. Muldrow, extension animal husbandman, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Bots and intestinal roundworms are two of the most serious of internal parasites of horses and mules. They panics, manufacturers of electrical 'supplies, contractors, electricians and others, and Mr. Arnold said, are a reliable guide in obtaining a wiring system that will not be a fire hazzard. The engineer pointed out tha't the National Electrical Code docs not provide for adequacy or completeness, but that these factors must be determined by each individual.

They are frequently the .cause of colic from which there is much loss of time out of harness, and which sometimes results in death. • A horse's stomach may contain hundreds of bots, and the small intestines may be-packed with large roundworms. Treatment is necessary in order to maintain efficiency of. the stock, Mr. Muldrow declares. > Wiring the Farmstead When wiring the farmstead for electricity, plan for the future. .Even though only a few applicances- or small motors may be operated -when electric service is first obtained, the FARMERS If all of the value of manure from dairy cows alone were saved, the total value of fertilizer elements would be at least 9 million dollars per year to Arkansas soil fertility. A 1,000 pound cow produces about one ton of manure each month, containing about 10 pounds of nitrogen, 5 pounds of phosporic acid, and 10 pounds of potash, making a total value of $1.50 to ?2 in commercial fertilizer, says V, L. Gregg, extension dairyman, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. If one-half of the value of the manure is lost through improper use and handling methods, there is a 'monthly loss of 75 cents to $1 per month per cow. A highly absorptive bedding, such as straw, should always be used to absorb and hold the valuable liquid part of the manure until it is delivered to the field. Frequent deliveries to the field arc very important, especially to prevent nitrogen loss through heating, Mr. Gregg said. If frequent deliveries cannot be made, the manure should be carefully and compactly piled to retard heating and to prevent leaching by water when rain falls on it. In older countries where soil fertility was recognized years before it was in United States, the care and use of manure are a serious part of the farming. The French farmer takes greater pride in the size of his manure pile than any other object on the farm. The German farmer stores the manure in air tight cisterns, and then carries it to the field in buckets to prevent loss. a pen like this may sign your doom— unless you use it first I IEFEAT THE FEDERAL WAGE AND HOUR BILL *Duostroiu to the Welfare of the Peop/e."—Knoxville Journal ^1 Dangerous Principle."—Waller Lippmann, N.Y.Herald Tribune 'Ruinous to the Farmer"- —Atlanta Constitutioa Farmers! Don't be deceived! The planners of the Wage-and-Hour Bill now before Congress claim to exempt farm workers from its provisions. But no power on earth can exempt you, your family, your livelihood, from the vicious provisions of this Bill. It proposes to give- the tax-supported Department of Labor final authority over wages and hours of private industry—although industry must find the money for hoth taxes and payrolls. Industry doesn't object to reasonable regulation for the promotion of its workers' welfare. But such a bill must be correctly drawn, must be a part of the American system of doing business—which this bill is not. What will this Bill moan to you? It has been condemned by farmers and farm organizations from coast to coast. Why'.' New Market for Pine With new pulp and paper mills being built in Arkansas, a new market has been opened for pine timer. Pointing out a way that farmers can take advantage of this new market for the benefit of their timber stands, he said that pulpwood can often be cut from dense young stands so as to improve the stands and increase the growth of the remaining trees. M. H. Bruner, Extension forester, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, said: "It is unwise to clear-cut young stands when they are growing at their fastest rate, even though most of the trees may be of pulpwood size. Studies of the U. £. Forest Service show that frequent cuttings at intervals of 5 to not more than 10 years will yield more wood and more in cash returns." The mills are buying pulpwood, in Hemnstond county in solving their erosion and fertilizer problems. Several farmers in this vicinity have found that vetch seeded in the cotton or corn middles early in the fall and turned early next March or April—two weeks ,• hwicl of planting time—materially in- crt ,1. cs the yield of corn or cotton. This '.r itself cuts down on the ever-present spring fcrtili/.or bill as well as increasing the water absorbing power of the soil and likewise decreasing the erosion problems. Many farmers arc following the motto: "Its cheaper to take the fertilizer out of the air with vetch than out of the sack with cash." mostly P'inc. over a wklo territory, and they will Uike wood as small as 4 inches in diameter ut the small end of a 4 1 /-. foot stick. When cutting or marking trees for pulpwood. Mr. Bruner said to select those trees that are crooked, forked, defective, bushy-topped, and short- holed. The straight, well?formed, and thrifty trees should be left for the production of saw log materials. Farmers should select about 200 crop trees per acre of the most thrifty, best- crowned individuals, and reserve these for their future crop. They should cut any trees that interfere or compete with these crop trees. The best timber should be held for sale as poles, piling, or sawlogs, since they can often get from 2 to 4 times more money for saw timber than they would for pulpwood, depending upon the size and quality of the trees.
