The best remedy for lice In poultry
bouses is to add a pound of concen
trated lye to a wash-boiler of soap
suds and to apply the suds hot on the
walls, lioors and roofs of the houses.
All lice, with their nits, will thus be
destroyed surely and quickly.
An excellent way to test seeds is
to place a few between two flannel
cloths, dampening the cloths with
warm water, placing them In a -warm
location and keeping them moist. Some
of the seeds will germinate if kept
at an even temperature. Another meth
od Is to p'nnt a few in a cigar box fill
ed with earth.
The winter Is the time to clean up
the farm. On some farms the waste

In various forms exists. Cold weathet

then there are no odors, but the filth
remains, however, and decay begins

Every farm needs a good cleaning up
at least once a year.
If butter Is a specialty on the farm
the pigs are necessary to Insure a

they will grow rapidly without any
other food. If pigs are confined In
pens they should have the grass cut

should have some kind of bulky food.
