Lead the Way to Improving Farming Practices. (Released by Western Newspaper Union.) WASHINGTON. The compact downtown financial district of London known as the City, which is the special target for German raiders incendiary bombs and the scene of Englands greatest fire in three centuries, has been acclaimed one of the most important commercial areas of its size in the world. The irregular semicircle of By S. B. CLELAND (Extension Specialist in Farm Management, University Farm, St. Paul) financial pace of the world, according to the National Geographic society. Clerk-enwe- ATSS!ILIE D The farmer who wants to study his farm business should not overlook the importance of good records of feed consumption by his live stock. Along with the cash and the crop records, the information on feed use will help show the way to improvement in practices from year to year. Records of feed consumption are usually kept on groups of live stock ' rather than on individual animals ancient streets beside the Thames 'known as the City is only one square mile in area, but for centuries it has set the The Bank of England, known as the exclusive Old Lady of Thread-needl- e Street, sits in the midst of it a private institution which since 1694 has had the exclusive right to issue Englands paper money and to hold the reserve funds of all other banks in the country. A coins throw to the east on Throgmorton street, stands the Stock exchange, which deals in the government bonds of its own and foreign countries, and in the stocks of most important corporations of the world. Londons Wall Street. Throgmorton street becomes the curb market for trading in American securities during the daily interval between the closing of the London exchange and the closing five hours later of New Yorks stock market. Lombard street, noted for its banks, adjoins Threadneedle and Throgmorton streets to form the Wall street district of London. Lloyds of London, a short walk east of Leadenhall street, in 250 years has grown to be the worlds largest insurance institution. It is an association of underwriters. Within the area also are the famous old financial house of Rothschild, and the even older Childs bank, which Dickens described in his Tale of Two Cities as Tellsons bank. Within vast metropolitan London, whose 8,000,000 people have spread their buildings over 692 square miles, the City is a tight little center packed inside ancient boundaries like an English walnut in its shell. It reaches from the Inns of Court and Fleet street in the west to the Tower of London in the east, from London bridge north to ll road. This is the oldest part of London. Through 20 centuries it has preserved its identity and practically its original limits, thanks to the thick wall 35 feet high built around it by Roman conquerors. Remnants'- - of this frequently rebuilt wall and its nine gates are responsible for the names of such streets as London Wall, Newgate, Aldgate, and Cripplegate, as well as Billingsgate Market. The wall enabled City dwellers to hold off William the Conqueror, who prudently built his Tower of London just outside the City. Since then, no sovereign has lived within the City. The king today first receives permission from the lord mayor of London before passing the spots, such as the Temple Bar, where modem streets cross the Citys antique boundaries. City Deserted at Night. Historic and literary landmarks, some dating from Roman times, fill the City, barely a yard apart. By accidents are not Most the results of are but accidents, carelessness, negligence or just plain bullheadness and cussedness. It is not an accident if a driver passes on a curve or on a hill at 75 miles and either goes over the bank or hits another car or pedestrian. It is not an accident when a person crosses against the lights and gets hurt or killed. It is not an accident that 76 per cent of all cars on the highways have defective brakes, as determined by the University of Iowa. nigh the district is usually deserted, since almost the only permanent residents are the custodians or watchmen of buildings which are treasured by the Empire for their By past or present significance. day, however, a million people daily crowd in and out of this small area on business. The volume of news dispatched from the newspaper offices of Fleet street in normal times makes this a world center for , journalism as well as finance. This same square mile of Lon( dons inner core was the birthplace of John Milton, Sir Thomas More, Charles Lamb, and William Penn. It was the residence of Chaucer, and was visited by countless notables who were involved in the literary activities of Grub street or Paternoster row. There at 17 Gough square, Dr. Johnson wrote his epochal dictionary of the English language. A few blocks south, within the high paneled walls of Middle Temple hall, on February 2, 1602, a troupe of actors presented a comedy by one of their company, a newcomer was it named Shakespeare; destined for Twelfth Night, , in 1941. Famous Men Lived in Area. A physician at old St. Bartholomews hospital, which had been founded by a kings jester, discovered the circulation of the blood William Harvey. Meanwhile, in the Fifteenth-centur- y Guildhall, successive lord mayors were elected and banqueted under the traditional but mysterious figures of Gog and Magog. Another landmark of the region was the Cheshire Cheese, the inn made famous by Dr. Johnson and Boswell. The Old Bailey, site Broadway modern criminal courts, has associations with the old debtors prison and the execution place where malefactors were hanged or burned at the stake; the last burning took place in 1789. John Bunyan, William Blake, and Daniel Defoe wandered through the City to a common burial place on its northern fringes. Other, tombs in the district include those of John Wesley, the Methodist founding father, and George Fox, first Quaker. Both traffic and tradition center of the City is St. Pauls cathedral, the empires parish church. Names of the knotted streets of the City are almost unbelievably quaint: Stew lane, Friday - street, Budge. row, Knightrider street, Red Lion court, and Fetter lane. of Londons Farm Prosperity Continues Rise .LaSalle Map of Business Conditions. Workers Income Rises as Expenses Stay at 1936 Level Increased Buying Power Reflected in High Store Sales. MINNEAPOLIS. Spreading payrolls from roaring defense industries have hoisted the American familys buying power to new recovery heights, a current family buying-powsurvey reveals. The average urban workers household saw its monthly income soar nearly $7 in the last six months of 1940, while household expenses remained at 1936 levels, according to a curer rent family buying-powstudy. The favorable margin between average earnings and living costs is the largest in the eight-yea- r history of the companys index, according to the survey Conducted by the Northwestern National Life Insurance company. Record department store trade volume, and improved installment collection ratios reflect this greater net buying power in the hands of the American consumer. Living costs sank to a low for the year in October, and have stiffened a trifle since, but have been far outstripped by the rise in industrial pay checks, the report states. Measuring the effects of payroll and living cost changes on the American pocketbook, the study shows that an average employed workers family of four, with earnings of $120 at average 1933 payroll levels and spending the same amount for its living expenses at average 1933 retail prices, had to pay $131.11 in June, 1936, to maintain the same standard of living; meanwhile the family pay check had er climbed to $133.92. In June, 1940, the same standard of living for a family of four cost $131.86, while the familys pay check had climbed to $150.86; by the year-enthe monthly pay check had d, rocketed almost another $7, to $157.49, while living costs had actually fallen $1.10 from June levels, totalling $130.76 in December, 1940, of practically the same as in the report shows. Thus the great increase in payrolls in recent months has meant a net increase in American spending power, the report points out, as total living costs are the same as they were a year ago, and actually less than they were last summer. Minor increases in clothing and fuel, have been offse by the decline in food prices, the study shows. mid-193- 6, Army Mechanic Rescues Navy Aviator in Desert RANDOLPH FIELD, TEXAS. If it had happened in the movies, audiences would have shrieked in dis: belief. , Technical Sergeant O. A. Miller, veteran air corps mechanic, of Randolph field, Texas, was driving across the Arizona desert not far from Gila Bend. Suddenly a navy A survey of business conditions for February reveals that prosperity is steadily rising. Increased industrial employment is stimulating demand for farm products. The resultant larger farm purchasing power is raising demand for manufactured products. Meanwhile many prices - 'are gradually moving higher. In practice the operator observes carefully the amount of feed used in a day, and on this basis estimates the quantity fed in a month. In the record book, one page is assigned to each class of live stock, with different columns for the different kinds of feed. It is a good plan to check once in a while on the estimates by comparing the total feed recorded with the amounts of feed that have been actually used. By placing a value on his feed as he goes along, the farmer can readily figure his feed results in cost per pound of gain for meat animals and cost per unit produced by dairy herds. In order to study his feed records intelligently, the operator must have standards with which to compare his own results. Cow testing records supply convenient yardsticks for the farm mandairyman. agement groups use the average for the association in the various classive fications. Files of the county agents office usually contain records of various feeding trials which afford good standards for comparison. The farmer who wishes to evaluate his records can do so conveniently by consulting the county agent and assembling a set of standards applicable to his own type of farming.

For growth of its wood, bark, and roots such a tree uses about a half pound of nitrogen. The leaves used from a half pound to a pound of nitrogen in their growth and development, but this is restored to the tree and soil, and is not ultimately removed from the orchard. If loss of nitrogen by leaching can be prevented, a pound of actual nitrogen a year for a tree in full bearing is an ample supply. Too much nitrogen checks the desirable coloring of the fruit. About 6 pounds of nitrate of soda or 5 pounds of sulphate of ammonia would supply a pound of nitrogen. one-thi- rd Farm Machine Sales Show Big Increase Comparative study of the farm situation since 1935 with the five-yeperiod preceding the World war reveals that current purchases of farm machinery and motor vehicles has doubled those made in the early period. The great increase was made in the purchases of motor vehicles, while expenditures for other farm machinery, averaged about the same. The number of horses and mules on farms was reduced from 25 to 15 million head and the number of hired laborers employed was about 13 per' cent lower than in the pre-wyears. The number of farms is about 10 per cent greater, the acreage cultivated has increased, and agricultural production is material' ly greater than it was. ar Af Sixteen breeds.
