(Prcpnrcd by tlio United States Department of Agriculture.)
(1.) Fl st-clnss seed corn Is senree nlmost every spring.
(2.) Extended plnntlngs mid rcplnntlngs prnellcally exhausted

(8.) In some sections this yenr's crop lias liecn destroyed by
drought or early frosts. Farmers of these sections should now nrrnnge 0

crop muy be destroyed, and there should now be selected n supply of ,

BEST MEASURES OF CONTROL
Biological Survey of Department of
Agriculture Would Like to Know
More About Habits of Obnox
(From the Unltod States Department of
To prescribe the most effective
measures for the control and eradica
tion of rodents and obnoxious wild
anlmnls, the most Intlmnte details of
the life histories of the animals must
be known. The biological survey of
the' United States department of agri
culture Is in need of this information.
It would like to know, for Instance,
more about the breeding habits and
young of ground squirrels, pocket go
pliers, kangaroo rats, pocket mice,
wood rats, grasshopper mice, and bar
vest mice. Accordingly, the survey re
cently has sut a request to Its field
naturalists asking for more detailed
study of many of the American mam
mals. Other persons Interested arc in
vited to send In reports of their study,
Food Habits of Rodents.
Particular attention should be given,
the request states, to locating and dig
ring out the burrows of the various
ground-Inhabiting species. Measure
ments and detailed sketches showing
the character of these underground
habitations, the nesting and food
chambers, and other peculiarities
should be made. Insufficient lnfornia
tlon Is available as to the quantity
and character of the food many such
animals store In their underground
retreats or In other pluccs.
The underground hnblts and young
of shrews and moles, as well as win
ter chambers and nests of hibernating
rodents, are insufficiently known. The
breeding habits of bats are almost un
known, and every opportunity should
be tuken to study them, the statement
adds. Hut caves or roosting places
should be carefully examined and re
ported in detail. Close attention
should be given to the food intuits or
till species and their relations to agrl
culture and forestry.
Field naturalists In charge of bio
logical surveys of certain territories
should familiarize themselves with the
survey's collection of species from
their ureas and be guided In their Held
work by the needs of the collection
Good photographs are needed, partial
larly of the smaller species, their
haunts, nesting places, nnd of what
ever else Illustrates their habits. The
need of study as described for habits
of animals applies with equal force to
birds, the rtatement adds.
V-SHAPED TROUGH IN FAVOR
One of Easiest to Make and Found
Most Satisfactory Have Enough
and Keep Them Clean.
Troughs for pig feeding may not
amount to much In the sum total of a
farm's equipment, but they are very
necessary In pig feeding. A few feet
of lumber, some nails pud a saw nnd
hummer, coupled up with a llftlo time,
will furnish these.
The time-honored V-shaped trough
Is one of hc easiest to mtiko and one
of the most satisfactory after It Is
made. It is familiar to every mnn who
owns and feeds swine. See that you
havo enough of them and that they
are kept; clean.
FEW HOG FEEDING MISTAKES
Do Not Give Solid Before Liquid Food
and Avoid Feeding All Sizes of
It Is n mistake not to feed the liquid
before the holld food.
It Is a mlstako to feed constipating
food and do nothing to correct it.
It Is u mistake to feed breeding-stuff
as If you were fitting It for tho market
It Is a mistake to feed all sizes to
gether whenever the smuller ones uri
at a disadvantage-
HEN MANURE VERY VALUABLE
Mixed With Ground Rock and Kalnlto
It Makes One of Best Fertilizers
for Farm Use.
By mixing from f0 to GO pounds ot
the ground rock with each barrel of
hen manure nnd adding 40 or 50
pounds of knlnlte ns a source of pot
ash, It makes one of the best nnd most
highly concentrated manures avallnble
for the lawn, garden nnd fruit orch
ard. In addition to Its mnnurlnl value,
It possesses the further advantage of
being free from weed seeds. As a fer
tilizer for corn this mixture Is unex
celled, and excellent results hnvo been
obtained by using a small amount In
the hill covering It with dirt before
planting the corn.
PREVENT DISEASE IN STOCK
Sanitation and Good Feeding Methods
Help Reduce Losses Keep Meat
Proper feeding and sanitation arc
two Importnnt preventives of dlsense
losses In farm animals. If carefully
applied these measures may jirevent
many losses of meat anlmnls. Keep
the nnlmnls sturdy and disease-resist-
nnt by feeding a good, wholesome
diet. Young animals need particular
care and should be kept growing. A
balanced ration should be fed one

USEFUL CORN HUSKING RACK
Device Shown In Illustration Is Con
venient Because It Obviates
Kneeling or Stooping.
A device that Is very convenient In
husking corn is the one shown In the
cut. The fodder can be placed on this
rack to save kneeling nnd stooping.
The two wheels should be on a 2
fnnt nxlo to which are attached the
Handy Husking Rack.
eight-foot handles propx'rly braced to
prevent spreading. Such a rack can
be easily wheeled from shock to shock
nnd the twine can be carried In a box
on the frame. Farm and Home.
RATS CAUSE IMMENSE LOSS
Rodents Eat Chickens, Stored Grain
and Food Prepared for Table
Mice Also Harmful.
Itnts eat chickens, stored grain,
corn, wnear, aim otner smau grain,
and some of the food prepared for
the table. The grain farmer does not
notice the loss of grnln readily since
much of It Is picked up In tho
field by mice and rats. However,
some Idea of the loss can usually be
gained by examining the crib in spring
when the corn supply becomes low.
On some farms several bushels of corn
will have b6cn shattered by rats and
mice nnd the germs of the grain- re
moved. . This represents merely tho
grnln which wns partly eaten. It docs
not represent thnt which was entirely
consumed by the rodents.
ROAD DUST IS QUITE USEFUL
Handy Thing to Have in Hen House In
Winter to Sprinkle Under Roosts
and for Dust Bath.
Before the frost and cold weather
sets In be sure you havo collected a
few barrels of dry earth road dust,
line dirt In the corn Held or potato
patch, or anywhere that Is most con
venient. This Is n handy thing to
havo In the fall and winter for sprin
kling under the roosts, and for a dust
bath. It absorbs ammoila, keeps down
odors, and keeps things shlpshnpe. It
will pay to attend to this when It can
be so easily done. It costs but little,
nnd Is a real advantage.

When Buying Purebred Cattle KnowU

purebred cattle. That is, that the

WILL POWER AND INSOMNIA
Relaxation, Assisted by Beautiful and
Benevolent Thoughts, Cited as Sure
Cur) for Sleeplessness.
A noted hyglcnlst tells of n mnn who
wns on tho bordcrlnnd of nervous
breakdown nnd the Joy of brnln nnd
muscle was fast receding, notes the
Ohio State Journal. Hut he got well
and sound again by attending- safely to
his relaxation. Insomnia wns his
greatest trouble, nnd when he went to
bed It was to toss and bob around In
mind and body until he fell Into u
restless sleep. He cured this by re
laxation. That Is, by yielding his body
to the gentle pressure of bed nnd pil
low and not trying to hold himself up
by nervous exertion. It Is the old doc
trine of power through repose, a love
ly lden, hut not always realizable.
The trouble Is one soon forgets the re
laxation, and so tries to practice It
that ho Is apt to fall Into a center
The hyglcnlst leaves out the main
Idea. He resorts to the will power,
while the real secret Is a resort to the
mornl.powor, which means falling un
der the sway of beautiful and bene
volent thoughts, and then the relaxa
tion will take care of Itself. One of
these methods Is to think ot the peo
ple you don't like, nnd then proceed
to lovo them all, and you will find the
pillow mid the bed will render their
full service and sustain all your phy
sical and mental Infirmities.
