NOTES OF FARM AND HOME Prepared by R. E. Carter, Farm Agent: Miss Mary Anderson. Home- Economics Representative. BEST GKAI'E CLUSTEHS FOLLOW CANE PRUNING Although commercial g r o w e r s ecognize 0)o necessity ot severely Tuning grape vines each year, some question exists as to the proper method. Pruning insures the produc- ion of good clusters and helps mam- ain the vigor of the vines. Most growers believe that Concord, Niagara, Worden and other eastern 'arieties, should be pruned to 'canes" rjithor than "spurs." However a few use the older method. The first and second buds at the base of the cane produce only a few, comparatively small clusters. The bird bud is usually only a fair producer while the fourth is frequently satisfactory. The mid-section of the cane hns the best fruiting buds. Those near the tip arc poor. It is for this reason that in cane pruning a few ot the best canes are saved and the ends removed. Mos! growers leave them three to four feel long with from eight to 12 buds Other canes are removed entirely except perhaps for an occasiona spur left Cor renewal the succeeding year. The best canes have plump well-developed buds, arc short jointed and about four to seven feet long They are about 1 as thick as a lead pencil or slightly thicker. Lack of pruning, cultivation am fcrlilizalion may so reduce growth that none of tho canes will meet these requirements. With vigorous , vines some canes may be too thick with too much space between joints Sometimes they grow to a length o 10 to 20 feet and have short, lateria branches. Such "bull" canes arc poo fruiters and should be removed in pruning. It is advisable to remove short, spindly canes as well. H is clear that the spur prune who leaves only the first two buds a the base is saving only the poor buds Such systems arc Knifhn, Chau tauqua, and umbrella have give, about equal results. With any sys tcm it is important that the vine bo kept compact. The best plan to save only enough old wood t permit the distribution o£ the cane on the trellis in the desired manner One trunk is enough for any vine i the commercial vineyard.

While ows may have a stable that is clean, Kht, dry and sanitary, it too frc- jcntly happens that the calves arc Inccd in a pen that cannot be used or other stock. Dirty, dark, damp pens induce cours, pneumonia and general ill ealth. It is a Rood plani lo keep lives in a pen that is cleaned nnd isinfcctod regularly nnd kept well cdded, dry and comfortably warm. C«!f pens having a southern ex- osurc will fict more sunlight and be "armcr and drier during the winter months. A fc\v dairymen are using traw-covercd, wire doors in their ens. Those are proving to be more omfortable as well as wanner and ricr. No more bedding is required inn on concrete floors. When several calves are kept to- ethcr, fastening them in stanchions uring the feeding periods will inure each getting its share of the ced. By keeping the calves in the tanchion.i for a few minutes after ach /ceding will help prevent them orming the habit of sucking each Dthcr. Like babies, calves are quite sus- ~cptible to diseases. Prevention is *ilways better than a cure. If they ire to get the proper start in !ife heir housing conditions should b dry, warm, light and sanitary Warmth does not mean artificial heat but absence of dampness and cold. 'ON'TKOL RATS WITH UED SQUILL rC-ISOI" Rats are causing trouble this win tor on many farms. They are damaging apples and corn most. On some farms they havi even been found working in tin lelds. They are by far the mos numerous in many years. IPST1CKGIRL HEALTH FRIEND ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 0.--The girl vho leaves a red garland ot lipstick in the drugstore glass may be the ·ncmy ot the soda dispenser but Dr. 'reslon Yarbroufih s;iys she's the riend oC public health. The youthful chemist for the Georgia Department ot Agriculture explained: "When lipstick lingers on the glass, he soda dispenser must scrub much jardcr than usual to remove it and h the process he eradicates many Jacteria (iiat otherwise might go down the public throat." , Most rats are now fiuitc cornforl- ibly located for the cold weather. Then lend to congregate where food s handy. This simplifies the prob- em of eradication. By doing away with them now, any further damage during the winter months may be eliminated. Several chemicals may be used as poisons lor rats. Red squill has the advantage of being relatively harmless to human beings and domestic animals. It may be obtained either as a powder or liquid. The powder form is considered more toxic to rats, keeps better, nnd is more easily mixed with baits. Always u;e foods attractive to the rodents as baits. Set the poisonous mixtures in runways, using three kinds of food to give the rats their choice. Use generous amounts. Early evening seems the best tine to set bails. Rat control proves most satisfactory if applied simultaneously over a large area. Rolled oats or cornmeal, ground meats and flth have been found attractive to rats. A satisfactory bait can be made by mixing one ounce of red squill powder with 10 ounces of the food selected. It is suggested that the materials be mixed thoroughly. From one-half to one teaspoon of a mixture is enough for each place baited.
