When Dr. Caldwell started to practice
medicine, back in 1875, the needs for m
laxative were not as great as today.
People lived normal lives, ate plain,
wholesome food, and got plenty of fresh
air. Bub even that early there were
drastic physics and purges for the relief
<k> constipation which Dr. Caldwell did
not believe were good for human beings.
The prescription for constipation that
lie used oarly in his practice, and which
bo put in drug stores in 1892 under the
name of Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin,
is a liquid vegetable remedy, intended
for women, children and elderly people,
and they need just such, a mild, safe
bowel stimulant.
This proscription has proven its worth
and is now the largest selling liquid
laxative. It has won the confidence of
people who needed it to get relief from
headaches, biliousness, flatulence, indi
gestion, loss of appetite and sleep, bad
breath, dyspepsia, colds, fevers. At your

Good grass pasture furnishes dairy
cows one of the most suitable ra
tions for milk production, but it is
usually for only a short season, in
Jung and early July, that grass
pasture is both prime and abund
ant. The hot, dry time of mid
summer usually finds them short
and dry, and furnishing scant ra
tions for cows that are producing
a pound or more of butter fat per
day. Such cows should then be fed
some grain.
Cows that have just freshened
or that freshened in the early sum
mer should have particular atten
tion in the dry pasture season. It
is important to keep such cows in
good condition and up in their milk
flow during this period to insure
good production during the fall and
winter months. They may other
wise fall off in production to the
extent that to make a profit on
them during the rest of their milk
ing periods is impossible.
How much grain and the kind of
grains to feed to cows on pasture de
pends upon the condition of the
cows and the condition of the grass.
Thin cows will need more grain than
those that are in good flesh, and as
a rule will also need grain rations
that are not quite as rich in pro
tein as the latter. If the grass is
still fairly fresh and succulent less
protein is also needed in the grain
ration than if the grass has become
mature and like hay and scanty.
A mixture of equal parts by weight
of ground oats, bran and corn meal,
or of oats and corn alone, serves the
purpose well with fresh green grass
pasture; but as the summer ad
vances and the grass becomes short
and dry, grain mixtures suitable for
winter feeding with silage as a part
of the winter ration will meet the
needs of the cows to better purpose.
More protein and greater variety are
then in order. These may be add
ed by the use of some cotton seed
meal and oil meal to the oats, bran
and com mixture.
It is a good rule in winter feed
ing to allow one pound of grain or
concentrate feed per day to cows for
each four pounds of milk they pro
duce testing 3 to 3per cent, fat:
or one pound per day for each three
pounds of milk if it tests 5 per cent,
or more of fat. This rule may be
used as a guide to determine how
much grain to feed during the pas
ture season. With the grass still
in fairly good condition one third as
much grain as is required in the
winter season will ordinarily be
enough, but as the season advances
and the grass shortens and dries
a gradual increase becomes neces
Judgment, however, must be the
main rule always. The aim should
be to maintain production and the
condition of the cows with as little
tendency to drop off as possible.
Cows in the advanced stages of their
milking periods that are only pro
ducing 10 to 15 pounds daily will not
ordinarily require concentrate feeds
during the pasture season.
It is not always easy to balance a
ration, and there is just about as
much danger in feeding too much
protein as too little. In many parts
of this country we have a super
abundance of protein feed, and it is
in such districts that we find too
much protein in the ration. The al
falfa districts are especially given
to this bad practice of feeding, and
animals are ruined or made unprof
itable on a good many farms.
Some years ago, writes an experi
enced dairyman, I fed a number of
cows on alfalfa hay alone. At the
end of one year, practically all of
the animals were ruined. Of course,
we know that alfalfe has about
twice as much protein as the animal
needs, and it is deficient in carbo
Many farmers say they do not
need a silo because they have alfal
fa. This is just like saying they do
not need .bread because they have
meat. Or tnat they do not need pork
because they have beans. A stock
farmer with plenty of alfalfa is in
crying need of a silo, for silage
makes the best balance for alfalfa
We hear a good deal nowadays
about the splendid sweet clover pas
tures, and how they withstand
drouth and will carry three or four
times the number of stock that the
average bluegrass pasture will.
Sweet clover is not a balanced ra
tion, though we generally find it
associated with other plants so that
the animal can. by selecting its feed,
balance the ration, but it is a pretty
good plan to supply carbohydrate
feeds along with sweet clover pas
ture. and corn or cane is about the
cheapest and best to make up the
balance. Corn or cane in the form
of silage furnishes the cheapest
source of carbohydrates and makes
the cheapest and best balance tor
legume hay or pasture.
A succulent ration is especially
valuable to feed with legume hay
or pasture, and such feeds can best
be furnished in the form of roots or
silage. Silage is preferred, for it
requires less labor to raise or handle
and keeps for several years. As sweet
clover pastures are now becoming
quite numerous, we must give added
care to furnish a proper balance,
and from tests already made we
have found that silage makes the
best and cheapest carbohydrate feed
to go with the legume hay or pas
Vegetable and fruit growers who
cater to local markets must neces
sarily store some of their products
for winter sale. Farmers must also
store their supplies of apples, pears,
beets, carrots, turnips, potatoes, and
the like.
In providing for a storage cellar,
certain provisions must be followed
and principles observed:
(1) See that the room is entirely
shut off from the rest of the house
or cellar, away from the furnace.
A flock owner cannot afford to
keep over one-third of the old birds
in the flock the second year. It is
certainly reasonable that they
should keep only the very best of
the flock and careful selection is
the only possible way without the
use of trap nests.
Spring seeding of alfalfa, with a
nurse crop, is best in Iowa, as a rule.
Not only cheaper, but more certain
to make a stand, and produces a
heavier crop of hay the following
season than summer or fall seed
in gs
and preferal’/ on the north or cold
side of the h use.
(2) Have it Tully insulated by us
ing tight wal.u and ceilings. Double
walls, the dead air spaces rilled with
shavings, sawdust or cork, and with
all cracks plugged, are more effec
(3) Have a window in the small
storage room, or a ventilator in the
large room; keep open whenever the
outside temperature is lower than
the inside temperature, unless there
i3 danger of freezing.
(4) Keep vegetables as near 34 to
38 degrees as possible, except squash,
pumpkins and sweet potatoes, which
need a warm room. 56 to 65 degrees.
For apples 30 to 32 degrees is desir
(5) Keep the atmosphere damp to
prevent shriveling. An earthen floor
is best. Sprinkle concrete mloors or
cover with a layer of earth, which
may be dampened occasionally.
(6) Keep the room clean and san
itary to prevent the growth of bac
teria and other decay organisms.
(7) Keep the room as dark as pos
sible by shading the windows from
the outside.
(8) Screen all openings to keep
out rats and mice.
(9) Store products on shelves,
racks, slat bins or slat crates. Keep
onions and cabbage on open slatted
racks; potatoes in slatted bins, two
to three feet, and raised an inch
or two off the floor; apples in slat
bushel crates; canned goods on
shelves. Store carrots, beets, turnips
and similar root crops in boxes of
moist sand or soil to prevent shriv
eling. Don’t store fruits or celery
with anything that gives off an
odor, such as onions.
(10) Store only sound, dry speci
mens, for frosted, diseased or
bruised fruit or vegetables will soon
There is material for unlimited
comment in the consumer’s objec
tions to the present price of beef.
The familiar principles of economic
law appear in full action.
A prolonged period of surplus sup
plies, a steady decrease in produc
tion with the marketing of breeding
stock, a low level of retail prices,
public indifference to the troubles of
the stockraiser; a fallling off of the
supply of beef, a strong advance in
prices, an outcry against the price
and quality of beef, threats of a
boycott, public indifference to the
real reasons for the situation.
The consuming public objects to
paying any price, however fair, that
is higher than it used to be.
The public can afford to pay any
reasonable price for anything it
really wants; and its memory is
The public cares nothing for the
interests of the producer, and has
no fear whatever of a food shortage.
It will always be so. If the producer
is to have his interests looked after,
he himself must do it.
Since the Increase in the use of
soybeans hay has become quite com
mon throughout the corn belt states,
dairymen have found their butter
to be somewhat adversely affected
in body, when the groiaid brans are
red In large quantities. The flavor
of the butter, however, does not seem
vo be affected by the feeding of
either soybean hay or the ground
beans. This is a matter that has
been thoroughly investigated by an
accredited experiment station, and
a report has been issued to the ef
fect that the feeding of soyban hay
does not materially affect the body
of butter, but it is unwise to add soy
beans in too large quantities to the
grain mixture. Soybeans affect the
body of the butter adversely because
they are very rich in fat and the fat
is of different composition from that
of other grains. Whenever the fat
is extracted from soybeans and the
remaining soybean meal is used as
a protein supplement, the butter is
not adversely affected.
To protect young trees from rab
bits, we melt laundry soap and make
it into a thick jelly, and on a day
when the sun shines brightly and
there is a little air, if possible, wash
these trees up to a height above the
rabbits’ reach. We pull the soil
back just a little and wash down,
then put the soil back. If the job
is done thoroughly, postlvely no rab
bits will bother the trees. Besides,
this treatment gives the bark ol
trees a healthy look. Don't let hogs
run in orchard after soaping or they
will peel the bark off. For that mat
ter, hogs should not be allowed to
run in any young orchard.
If it rains a lot, repeat the soap
wash in middle of winter for pro
tection, but I've never in over 50
years seen this treatment fail where
used but once.
There are many things for the
engineer to do in agriculture, aside
from designing the necessary ma
chinery and making it efficient. For
one thing, he can do the same as
he has done in other industries—
reduce costs. We hear much about
the exportable surplus. It will al
ways be the farmer’s problem until
the right kind of co-operative mar
keting enables him to dispose of it
an orderly way. And until that is
as other manufacturers have done
—reduce the cost of production.
Other industries have increased
their output per man many times.
It has been done in agriculture also,
but not in the same ratio. And
that is the thing the engineer can

severely against lambs that have not
