Veal or S t e a k for the same i n v e s t m e n t of money.
China and Japan, Austria and Italy, California with her varieties

A bit of the history of Michigan Bean I n d u s t r y shows t h a t ten

Authority, Mr. Paul Sti'aus of Budapest, Austria, says t h a t for three
years after this war is over, Europe will be obliged to continue importing our Beans, and meantime, t h e superior quality of Michigan's
Beans wilt have so impressed itself upon Europe, t h a t we shall have
trade for ten million bushels of Michigan Beans at a good price.
Please bear in mind, t h a t in no other section known in the world, do
the same conditions of soil and climate abound as in this Great Lake
region, and these conditions only will produce Beans w i t h the desired
physical composition and flavor.
Millions upon millions of cans of beans are going to England,
France, Greece, Belgium, and the Scandinavian countries where never
before were tasted "Yankee Pork and Beans." These nations will continue the "Bean Habit" during the war, and when the last gun has
fired its deadly shot, and Peace again covers Europe, when the millions of soldiers have returned to peaceful industry, the t a s t e for the
only real Baked Bean they have ever eaten will linger, and be made

the better the soil, the better the results. Good beans are grown on
Sandy, Sandy-loam, Clay or Muck-mixed-clay Soil, but good drainage
is necessary.
P R E P A R A T I O N : - - F a l l or early Spring deep plowing, discing
thoroughly each way in the Spring; rolling and d r a g g i n g and rolling
again to level up. The more thorough the cultivation, the better results. An eleven hoe drill with enough alternate drills plugged so the

to plant 3 pecks, or 45 pounds Per acre.
F E R T I L I Z E R :--Avoid barnyard manure if bean pods and straw
were fed the stock, as any disease in t h a t crop will be carried into
the soil and infect the growing c r o p - - u s e liberal proportions of
