CALF-FEEDER IS ARTIFICIAL
Combination Pacifier and Nurse Bottlo
Attachment for Milk Palls Is
Shown In Drawing.
Who hns not more than once angrily
kicked n culf "In tho slat" while try
ing to teach It to tnkc Its liquid din
ner from n pull lustend of from Its
mother's udder In nuture's well ap
proved manner? But the new elllclency
movement In the business of farming
has approved the artificial method of
feeding the calves so as to Increase the
Income to lie obtained from milking
their mothers. Some ingenious son of
n farmer seems to hnvo set himself the
task of devising some method of mak
ing the calf want to drink from the
pall rather than simply, and more or
less forcibly, making him drink from
it. The result of thnt thinking Is the
combination paclller and nurse bottle
attachment for milk palls shown In the
accompanying drawing. It consists oi
a metal lloat carrying n tcatllko at
tachment on which may be placed u
rubber nipple. This arrangement lets
the calf bunt and puck all it wants to,
but still forces It to draw Its nourish
ment from the pall Insteud of from the
maternal udder. All you have to teach
It Is to stick its nose downward in
stead of upward in order to get hold of
the nourishing tent. Farming Busi

It Is a good rule to have every cow

To Insure stendy motion, a separa

much fat. Always give her plenty of
The average cow In full milk flow
will consume from 30 to -10 pounds of
silage to advantage. Add to this some
10 pounds of dry fodder, and the
roughage feed Is complete.
Only concrete floors should be per

more, perhnps, originally, but they are
the cheapest In the long run. For

Noticeable Increase Where Purebred
Bulls Are Maintained Scrubs Do
Not Pay for Keep.
Figures recently compiled by tho
University of Illinois seem to show
that there Is a deflnlto relation ber
tween a good bull and the size of the
On 124 dairy farms where purebred
bulls wero kept at tho bend of the
dairy herd, the average farm income
was $1,102 after deducting tho taxes,
Interest on Investment, etc.
On 400 dairy farms where a grade
bull' stood at the head of tho herd the
farm Income was found to be $7114 per
year, and on 8.'J farms where scrub
bulls were used tho farm Income was
.$24:5, or failed by $241! to pay inter

about pay for tho owner's time.
FEEDING COWS WHOLE BEETS
Somewhat Larner Yield of Milk and
Milk Fat Obtained Than When
They Were Chopped.
In a foreign experiment with dairy
cows It was found that the feeding
of whole beds produced n somewhat
larger yield of mill: nnd milk fat than
when chopptul beets were fed, this In
crease probably being due to more
complete mastication nnd utilization.

YES! LIFT A CORN
OFF WITHOUT PAIN!
Cincinnati man tells how to dry
up a corn or callus so It lifts
off with fingers.
You corn-pestered men and women
need suffer no longer. Wear the shoes
that nearly killed you before, says this
Cincinnati authority, because a few
drops of freezone applied directly on a
tender, aching corn or callus, stops
soreness nt once nnd soon the corn or
hardened callus loosens so It enn bo
lifted off, root and all, without pain.
A smnll bottle of freezone costs very
little at any drug store, but will posi
tively take off every hard or soft corn
or callus. This should be tried, as It
Is Inexpensive and Is said not to irrl
fate tho surrounding skin.
If your druggist hnsn't nny freezone
tell him to get n small bottle for you
from his wholesale drug house. adv.

If n dirt rond Is properly built, tho

n best way to do It. These rules from
tho Highway Magazine, tell how to
get tho right results.
"Use a light drag.
"Haul it over the road nt nn angle
so thnt a smnll amount of earth Is
pushed toward tho center of tho road.
"Drive tho team at n wnlk.
"Ride on the drag; do not wnlk.
"Begin nt ono side of tho road, re
turning up the opposite side.
"Drag the road us soon after every
rnln us possible, but not when tho

"Do not drag a dry road.
"Drag whenever possible at all sea
sons of the year.
"Tho width of tho traveled way to
bo maintained by the drag should bo
from 18 to 20 feet; first drag u llttlo
moro than the width of a slnglo wheel
track, then gradually Increase until
desired width Is obtained.
"Always drag u llttlo earth towurds
tho center of tho road until It Is raised
from 10 to 12 Inches ubovo tho edges
of tho traveled way.
"If the drag cuts too much, short
en tho hitch.
"The best results for dragging aro
obtained only by repeated applica
tion." Motor Vehicle Travel.

In Six Years He Was Well Off
An Alhertn farmer, who had bor
rowed from a loan company, In re
mitting to them tho last payment on
his mortgage, decided to give them tho
history of his experience, on n Mani
toba farm. It was that of many anoth

who contemplnto a chnngo tho liberty
is taken of reproducing It.
"I will glvo you hero a brief sum
mary of my cxpcrlcnco slnco coming
hero six years ago. I was a new hand
at farming, my trade being meat-cut
ting and butchering. My cnpltal was
$400, which was a first payment on
my qunrtcr section (1C0 ncres). Most
of my stock, harness, Implements, etc.,
wero bought nt snles, nil "on time,"
necessarily. Tho buildings ori tho place
wero nbout as good as nothing and had
cither to bo rebuilt or replaced entirely.
Thero wero 20 ncres broken, and very
bndly farmed, bringing poor returns
Uio first year." After mentioning a
number of mischances, ho says: "In
sptto of nil theso drawbacks, I have
done well. I consider my farm worth
$3,500 to $4,000. I hnve four head of
horses, 12 of cattle, over 400 purebred
Buff Orpington chickens nnd 125 tur
keys, besides Implements, harness, etc.,
to run my place. I havo a well 170
feet deep with an Incxhausttbto supply
of water. Tho well with pump cost
mo $400. I havo built n $125 chicken
houso nnd put up nearly $50 worth of
poultry fencing; have built root collars
to hold over 3,000 bushels of potatoes
and other vegetables. As to Income, I
ralso about ten acres of garden nnd
roots nnnunlly which net from $000 to
$1,000 total. I generally sell from
20 to 40 tons timothy liny which brings
from $0 to $14 per ton. My grnln Is
most till used on tho farm except n
few hundred bushels sold to the neigh
bors for seed. My four milk cows bring
In from $50 to $S0 each (counting calf).
Last year 80 hens laid GOO dozen eggs
which nverngod moro thnn 25 cents n

production). Tho surplus hens were
