THE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE, NORTH PLATTE. NEBRASKA.
Many of the brnve women who attend
our wounded heroes of this wnr are
women who havo used Doctor Pierce's
Favorite Prescription, or who recom
mend it. The hospital, with its work
and long hours, imposes extreme hard
ahip on a woman's strength. Every
woman should make herself fit for.war's
call at home or abroad. She should
obtain a book called the w Medical
Adviser," either at her nearest drug
tore or by sending 60 one-cent stamps
to Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Insti
tute, Buffalo, N. Y., for a book which
tells about Nursing, Bandaging, Anat
omy, Physiology, the Marriage Relation,
Knowledgo of Sex.
Thousands of women in the United
States have overcome their sufferings,
and have been cured of woman's ills, by
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. So
too, for liver and bowel troubles,
nothing is bo effective or pleasant as

me of my pains and built me up into

TO COW'S HEALTH
Suspension of Chewing Is One of
First Indications of Sick

FIND CAUSE OF DISTURBANCE
With Return of Normal State Thero
Will Be Restoration of Process of
Digestion, Including Function
(Prepared by tho United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Although the relation of the uct of
chewing the cud to the natural process
of digestion In cattle Is probably quite
generally understood, the United
States department of agriculture fre
quetly receives Inquiries concerning
the proper treatment for cattle which
have "lost their cud," the Impression
apparently being that the cud Is some
thing which can mechanically disap

placed in order to restore thu unltnul
Is a Natural Process.
Rumination or chewing tho cud Is a
natural process In connection with the
digestion of cattle and other ruminant
animals. In ruminants the food when
Hist taken into the stomach is Im
perfectly chewed, and is returned to
tho mouth for remastlcatlon. This re
turned ball of food Is termed "the
So called loss of cud, the department
explains, Is simply a suspension of
chewing, frequently one of the first
Indications of sickness in nny kind of
ruminant animals, since ruminants
generally stop chewing the cud when
feeling out of condition. Any condi

cattle may result In suspension of
chewing, and there Is almost certain to
be an interruption of this process
when there Is any pronounced dis

come of local superstitions and a luck
of knowledgo concerning the digestive
process of the cow. Instead of such
treatment an effort should be made
to determine the exact nature of the
illness affecting the cow with a view
to applying proper treatment.
It may be confidently expected with
an approaching return of the animal
to a state of normal health there will
be a restoration of the process of di
gestion, Including the function of
rumination or cud-chewing.
BIG GAIN IN POTATO YIELD
Production Per Acre Is Thirty-Six Per
Cent Higher Than That of
Twenty Years Ago.
(Prepared by ;ho United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Tho yield of potatoes per acre Is
gradually Increasing In this country,
as shown by the records of tho bureau
of crop estimates of the United States
department of agriculture. During
1800-1874 the average annual yield per
nrre was 01 hushes, but tho average
markedly declined to 71.J1 bushels In
1S8.r.-l8!H. Perceptible recovery wns
made in the following ten-year period
and a much larger recovery, rising
to a new high-water mark, was readi
ed In 190r-1014, with Its average yield
of 97 bushels per acre.
In 20 years the productivity of the
average potato acre Increased !!0 per
cent. This Increase is due to various
causes, among which are greater spe
cialization of production, more inten
sive treatment, and higher fertility of
the soil. The ten-year average yield
of 07 bushels per acre' in 1003-1014
was followed by 00.3 bushels In 1010,
80.5 bushels In the very low year 1010,
and 100.8 bushels In 1017.
Compared with population, the yield
of potntoes per aero declined from
1S00-1771 to 1005-1014. The gain of
pioductlon per capita In recent years
has been more because of Increased
acreage than because of Increased pro
duction per acre.

FOR A GENERAL FARM
Profitable for Every Farmer to
Provide Adequate Storage.
Excellent Arrangement Devised for
Grain Farm Alleyway Provided
Where Seed Can Be Fanned or
Treated for Disease.
(Prepared by tho Unltoil States Depart
ment of Agriculture)
In view of tho present high prices
of all grains it is profitable manage
ment for tho general farmer to provide
adequate and dependable storage for
these valuable farm products. Tho
division of rural engineering of the
bureau of public roads, United States
department of agriculture, has devised
an excellent arrangement for a largo
granary adapted for the general grain
farm. This storage is 24 by 14 feet
In Hoor dimensions and is subdivided
Into four bins, each of which Is 7

Engineers of Department of Agri
culture. by 0 feet, nnd has a capacity of
450 bushels. Each bin Is provided
with a door through which the grain
may be distributed into tho storage,
while It also has a protected scoop
door through which the grain can bo
delivered. Tho four bins front on an
alleyway which Is C by 14 feet, where
the seed can be fanned und cleaned
or else treated against disease. In
case of emergency, where the grain
crop exceeds the permanent storage
capacity, this space also may be par
titioned off and utilized for storage
purposes. The total capacity of the
permanent bins is 1,800 bushels, while
the emergency spneo also available In
the central cleaning floor Increases the
total possible storage to over 2,100
WATERING COWS IN WINTER
Water Should Be Twenty Degrees
Above Freezing Point Animals
Need Ample Amount.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
All animals require plenty of good,
pure water. This is especially true of
the milking cow, as water constitutes
more thnn three-fourths of the total
volume of milk. The water supply,
therefore, demands the dairyman's
most careful attention. Stale or Im
pure water is distasteful to the cow
and she will not drink enough for mnx
imum milk i oductlon. Such wnter
mny also carry disease germs which
might mnke the milk unsafe for hu
man consumption or be dangerous to
tho cow herself. During the winter,
when cows are stabled the greater part
of the time, they should be wntered
two or three times a day unless ar
rangements have been made to keep
wnter before them at all times. The
water should, If possible, be 15 or 20
degrees above the freezing point, nnd
should be supplied at practically the
same temperature every day. When
wnter well above freezing temperature
is stored In tanks and piped directly
to the cow, there Is probably little oc
casion for facilities to warm It. When
It stands In n tank on which Ico often
forms, It usually pays well to warm It
slightly. This can be done by a tnnk
henter, by live steam, or by hot wnter
from a boiler. If a boiler Is used for
running a separator or for heating
wnter to wash and sterilize utensils,
steam from it can readily and cheaply
be used to warm the wnter.
USE FOR FROSTED POTATOES
Trials Show That Clean, White Starch
of Good Quality Can Be
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Frosted and decayed potatoes have
been found In trlnls conducted by the
United States department of agricul
ture to be entirely capable of produc
ing acceptable and frequently normal
yields of clean, white starch of good
quality. Much of thlg material ap
pears to possess a potential value for
the production of sizing starch ap
proximating that of the stock at pres
ent used for this purpose. The me
chanical difficulties In recovery from
decayed pulp are sometimes grenter
and sometimes less than from normal
stock. Modified procedure adapted to
these abnormal pulps doubtless could
be devised, department specialists
say, but there seems to be no reason
why tho present method might not bo
applied profitably In the menntlmo In
the production of sizing starch In fac
tories at the large shipping centers
Installed to utilize tho great quanti
ties of frozen und decayed potatoes
arriving during tho full and winter.
This would turn to profitable account
large supplies at present without
value, but which are a serious burden
of expense since to their cost of pro
duction must bo addd transportation
und dumping charges.
