every word in it. There were no many

went to town and got me a bottle. It

that the Germans had melted their
church bells and made them Into bul

to add Insult to Injury some of the hell
metal was made Into stirrups, to show
the Armenian Christians that they

they can worship God In peace.

the year when a greut ninny calves

right, but also to keep thein In u
It is economy to keep calf In such
'condition that it will gain one to one

As rich milk, testing four to Ilvo per
cent, Is not readily digested by young
calves and often muses scouring, It Is
best to feed them three to three and
one-half per cent milk. A strong calf
at this time of the year can be given
one pounu of milk for every eiglu
pounds of Its live weight.
Be Careful With Gruel.
Most dairymen get their calves grad
ually to eating some kind of calf meal
fed In the form of n gruel, hut many
mnke the mistake of feeding too largo
a qiumtity of this gruel, thinking thnt
It Is not ns wholesome as milk, ami
that they must, therefore, feed more of
It to make up for the food value of
the milk. This causes Indigestion, and
the calves become pot-bellied. The bet
ter practice Is to feed from six to

eight quarts of gruel nnd give thr
calves a good allowance of gralii
ration consisting of equal parts by
weight of corn. oats, brnn and oil meal.
Silage Often Disastrous.
Slloge Is often fed to calves with
disastrous results. This may be over
come by first feeding grain, milk nnd
hay, then silage. Good roughage Is
Invaluable, and It Is a wise practice
to use the second cutting of nlfnlfa or
clover for calf feeding.

To keep the birds from nesting In

In, a strip of No. 4 or No. 0 galvan

Such a covering would be more effec

RIGHT DRAFT OF. EVENERS
Flr6t Thing to Do Is to See That They
Are Working Free From Frlc
tion and Binding.
When figuring on the draft of even
ers, and the allowance to bo given, the
first thing to see to Is that the even
ers are working free from friction nnd
binding. After that, the next mat
ter of importance Is whether or not
the part of the load to be carried by
each horse Is fair to the horse. Hough
ly. It will be found thit a horse's work
ing capacity Is In proportion to Its
weight, that Is, for horses of similar
build. Put the bulk of the load on
the higher and stronger horse, hut
don't overdo the matter. A couple
inches the advantage means a lot
both ways! i
ROLLING CUTTER IS USEFUL
Most Satisfactory for Covering Weeds,
Tall Stubble and Other Rubbish
Weeds, tall stubble and trash can
he covered more satisfactorily If n
rolling cutter Is used on the plow. Set
the cutter so thnt It mokes a cut deep
enough to separate roots nnd stubble.
The cut should he made Just ahead of
and outside of the point of the plow
share. A trash gatherer, chain or
rod, will help turn the stubble under.
If plowing with n trnctor. a better
job can be done If the speed is In
creased to three miles per hour.

BOTH FRIEND AND NUISANCE
Crow Wages Warfare All Summer
Long on Insect Pests Raids
Cornfield and Hen Yard.
Thnt the crow's chnracter Is not so
black as It Is usually painted Is dis
closed by investigations made by the
bureau of biological survey of the
United States Department of Agricul
ture. In fact, the department's "bird
men" suy that much of the work tho
crow does Is of direct assistance to the
farmer, for "Mister Crow" wages war
fare nil summer long on Insect pests.
In fac,t, Insects supply about one-fifth
of his food, and those which he pre
fers in his diet are the worst Insect
pests the farmer has to contend with
grasshoppers, caterpillars, and white
grubs nnd their parents, Mny beetles.
On the other hand, the crow raids
the cornfield nnd the poultry .yard, and
kills small wHd birds and destroys
their nests. From the evidence at
hand the crow's merits nnd shortcom
ings uppear about equally divided.
While It would not be well to give It
absolute protection and thus afford tho
farmer no recourse when the bird Is
doing damage, the bureau of biological
survey believes that to adopt the poli
cy of killing every crow that comes
within gunshot would be equally un
wise. DISTRIBUTE EXCESS PROFITS

Excess prollts made by dealers who

Some of the dealers who accumu

of Justice Is co-operating with the
bureau, nnd It Is hoped to complete

POULTRY FLOCK IN BACKYARD

but which, If not fed. tlnds Its way

Poultry Is the only class of domes

this waste material, right where It Is
produced In the city, Into wholesome

eggs ami poultry meat.

AUTUMN TROUBLES IN FLOCK
Roup Is One of Most Common Dis
eases and Is Most Often Con.
tracted by Weak Fowls.
One of the most common diseases
of the fnrm poultry Hock during the
autumn Is roup. This dlsensc Is fre
quently found In damp, poorly venti
lated houses and Is most often con
tracted by birds that nre poorly de
veloped and of low vltalltv. Fowls of
this type frequently get roup and are
the means of spreading It through
out the flock. Obviously, prevention
should consist of eliminating the
weaklings from the flock and provid
ing a house that will be dry and free
from drafts, but well ventilated, says
the United Slates Department of
An additional prevention against
this disease Is the following: Add
ns much potassium permanganate as
will remain on the surface of a dime
to each gallon of drinking water and
keep before the fowls. This nets as
an antiseptic and will help' to keep
the birds In good condition. An at
tempt to cure tho Individual of roup
It not advisable, for, although in the
majority of cases, there may be an
apparent cure, the danger of reinfec
tion Is great, and frequently such
birds cause the disease to sprei.d
throughout the Hock. The safest
policy Is Immediately to remove such
birds from the (lock and kill them as
soon ns they show the first symptoms,
recognized by n watery discharge
from the nostrils or eyes.
KEEP DUCKS AND GEESE BUSY
Feed Enough to Keep Them In Condi
tlon and Leave Them Eager for
After the birds are mnted, prefer
ably not h.ter than December 1, keep
them active. Their ration should be
bulky, using about one-Hfth of green
stuff. They should not be fed nil they
can eat, but enough to keep them In
condition und leave them eager for
They do better on crncked corn
than on a ration of cornmeal only. If
ducks and geese are wintered In good
condition, and mated early, there
should be no dllllculty In getting fer
tile eggs. Too early eggs are not de
sirable. Ducks especially lay very
early In the morning, and the very
early eggs are apt to freeze.
SECURE STOCK FOR BREEDING
Fowls Should Be Accustomed to New
Quarters Before Season Opens
Unless It has already been done,
stock needed for breeding this sea
son should be bought Immediately
because the supplv Is rapidly growing
less and nlso fqr the reason thi.t the
birds should he changed and accus
tomed to their new quarters before
actual breeding begins.
