GOOD CARE AND FEEDING OF WORK TEAMS j
Fine Work Teams—The Requisites for a Working Horse Are Good Size,
Quick Action and Strength.
'By R. A. GAL.LIHER.)
Perhaps no subject is of more im
portance to the average farmer than
the proper care, and feeding of the
teams that are relied upon to do the
farm work; and as a rule, we do not
believe that these horses receive the
care and consideration that they
should. A good horse used in com
monsense manner, should live to an
old age and be in condition to per
form good work at ail times.
The essential requisites for a work
ing horse are good size, quick action
and strength. A high-spirited animal
or one cf great value is not the most
desirable animal for the farmer.
What we need is a good walker, as
much of the usefulness and efficiency
depends upon that quality. This fac
ulty is quite as much a matter of ed
ucation as inherited qualities.
Vnder ordinary circumstances It is
judicious to use mares for working
teams upon a farm. Except for a short
time, the period of parturition and im
mediately after, they are fully as well
adapted to farm work as geldings.
They also possess the advantage of
annually bringing colts, and in event

An old ewe or two may die during
the winter, but you can lose one out
of three and still make it pay to keep
them at $2 to $3 per head.
The sheep get uneasy as soon as
the hot weather comes on unless they
get out on the ground. It is a good
plan to let them out every day for a
while. If the pastures are not high
enough so that they can get all they
want to eat, bring them dow:n at night
and give them a nice, bright look of
hay and a little grain. The ewes need

Arrange your fields so that the

It is an easy matter to provide a
narrow trough filled three or four
inches deep with solution through
which the sheep can pass from the

This will not cure bad cases of foot

The woven wire fence is revolution

utilize every bit of waste land for pas

healthy and the cost of production will
be decreased many dollars.

GOOD ROADS PROVE BENEFIT
Improved Highways Increase Attend
ance at Rural Schools—States Ma
king Greatest Progress.
While it is true that various factors
contribute to increase or decrease the
attendance at schools in given sections
of the country, it is worthy of com
ment that in the states having a high
percentage of improved roads a much
larger percentage of the students en
rolled regularly attend the schools
than in the states having a small per
centage of improved roads. In five
eastern and western states, which
have a large mileage of improved
roads, the average attendance of en
rolled pup-ls in 190S-9 was 80 per cent,
while in four southern states and one
northwestern state, which are noted
for bad roads, the average attendance
for the same year was 54 per cent—
80 per cent in the good reads states
as against 64 per cent in the bad
roads states. In the states first named
35 per cent of the roads have been
A Good Road in New England.
improved, while in the latter group of
states there are only 1** per cent of
the roads improved.
That improved roads would benefit
our country school system there would
seem to be no doubt. Improved roads
make it possible to consolidate or cen
tralize the schools and to establish
graded schools in the rural districts.
Such schools centrally located will ac
commodate all of the children within a
radius of from four to five miles. In
many communities having the advan
tage of improved roads commodious
buildings have been provided, more
competent teachers have been em
ployed, and modern facilities for teach
ing have been supplied at a minimum
cost. For instance, since the Improve
ment of the.main highways in Durham
county, North Carolina, the number of
school houses has been reduced from
66 to 42, of which 17 are graded and
have two -or more rooms and employ
two or more teachers.
tfhere are at the present time about
two thousand consolidated rural
schools in the United States. It ap
pears that Massachusetts, Ohio and
Indiana have made the greatest prog
ress along these lines, and It is rather
significant to note that in these states
about one-third pf the roads have been
improved. According to statistics of
the agricultural department ther^ was
expended in 1899, $22,116 in Massachu
setts for the conveyance of pnpils to
consolidated schools, but in 1908 the
expenditure for this purest- amounted
to $292,213. In Indiana the expendi
ture for this purpose in 1904 amounted
to $86,000, while In 1908. $290,000 was
expended. This expenditure for trans
portation reflects. In a general way,
the extent and progress of this new
educational movement It must not be
understood that this is an additional
burden, as the expenditure thus made
is saved ifi other directions.
BENEFIT OF IMPROVED ROAD
Among Many Other Things It Attracts
Investors Looking for Advan
A long stretch of improved road Is
one of the best advertisements a state
can have. It attracts a class of tour
ists who are able and willing to pay
for entertainment. It brings investors
who are looking for advantageous lo
cations. It includes agricultural inves
tigation and consequent immigration
and investment, not only along the line
of the road, but in other accessible
sections. It changes, by the sheer
force of publicity, backward localities
into progressive ones; enhances val
ues. and brings Into general notice re
sources which had only been known
locally; or. if known, not appreciated.
The advantages which such stretches
of main roads cause to accrue are ad
vantages which affect the entire state,
as well as the localities themselves.
It should, therefore, be assumed as a
principle that such main roads should
be built, in whole or In part, by tbe
state; that their management and
maintenance should be in the hands
of the state authorities.
