GOOD CARE OF YCUNG CALF
Prof. Redman Does Not Favor Pastur
ing Animals During First Summer
on Account of Fliea.
The Mnlno Farmer thUB reports tho
addrosa of Prof. n. W. Itedman given
on the Farming Special trip, on the
subject of tho dairy calf: His sug
gestions were the results of the best
practical experience along that line.
After somu preliminary remarks along
the line of selection of the cow and
the use of n pure-bred bull, In which
ho emphasized tho quite generally ac
cepted assertion that tho sire Is half
the breed, ho spoko particularly of
the treatment of tho cow before calv
ing. She should rest a few weeks an-J
should be fed well but not high, and
should have somo succulent feed. She
should have good care and attention
and will respond with better offspring.
He suggested tho following treat
ment of the calf: Leave It with tho
dam a few days and then take It
away and teach It to drink. A clean
pall should be used and tho milk
should always be the same tempera
ture. After a few days of whole milk,
tho ubo of sklmmllk may bo com-

menced, with some substitutes for
tho fat which is taken out in the
cream. The feeding of grain and
clover hay may be commenced and
gradually increased as tho calf is
able to assimilate It
Professor Redman said that tho calf
should be kept growing and not al
lowed to get a setback at any time,
for It might never fully recover from
It and would not bo likely to make
the high quality cow that It other
Professor Redman did not favor pas
turing tho calves during the first sum
mer, but rather keeping them Inside
and away from the'annoylng flies dur
ing the warm days, for often they lose
more in fighting flies than they gain
by the open air and pasturing. They
might bo turned out into a pen at
CARE OF THE YOUNG CALVES
Especially Susceptible to Ravages of
Flies and 8hould Be Kept In
Barn Good Repellent.
(By W. W. KIMBALL.)
The young calves are especially
susceptible to the ravages of files and
It will seldom prove profitable to al
low them out of the barn except for
exercise during the night when the
files will not prove troublesome.
There are numerous remedies that
may be used as fly repellents but the
following formula recommended by
Doctor Moore has given excellent sat
isfaction wherever used and where
many of tho expensive preparations
have failed to perform what their
manufacturers claimed for them.
Fish oil 100 parts
Oil of tar 50 partB
Crude carbolic acid 1 part
The cost of the mixture Is about
30 cents a gallon and it may bo ap
plied with a hand sprayer every two
days. Some prefer applying the mix
ture once a day, using lighter1' appli
cations. Loads of clover and other forage
hauled to the stable every two or
three days will keep tho calves and
cows in excellent condition and the
manuro thus made will nearly pay for
the increased labor required in cut
ting and hauling.
When we consider the relationship
between the comfort of the cows and
calves and the amount of milk and
growth we can hardly fall to see that
we should do all In our power to im
prove their condition In fly time.
Learning dairy Business.
The man who Imagines he knows
( all there Is to know about dairying
' without attending the short courses
for dairying at tho agricultural col
leges or without reading a reliable
form paper Is making a great mistake
because no one man can bold all

Bacteria do not thrive in the cold,
but in heat only. If you keep your

completed. Tho alcohol Moats In the
top and changes Its concave surface
to nearly a straight line. As the uso
of the alcohol dissolves tho fat, there
fore reduces the length of the col

can be overcomo by first adding to
the alcohol all the fat It will dissolve

The diagrams In tho flguro show
the difference. In bottlo No. 1 It
shows tho top curve of tho fat which
occupies a space between A and n

test should be read 19 or 20, depend
ing on the selection of A or B as tho
point to which It Is read.
In bottle No. 2 tho alcohol makes
a straight line at tho top of the fat
column, so that the test can bo read
at that point without any uncertainty.

physicians Attribute Miss Haiel
Schmidt's Experience to Work
Which Overtaxed Her Nerv-
Vnndalla, 111. Hazel Schmidt, after a
.sleep of 100 days, recently awakened,
and is picking up tho looso threads of
llfo, reading the newspapers and mar
ivollng at tho inflnlto number of things
ithat can occur In so short a tlnfo.
This ,'cmarkablo sleep of a youni
land handsome woman Is said by th
jdoctors to bo unprecedented In authen
tic cases of a similar nature. To bi
sure Kip Van Wlnklo was made tc
sleep 20 years by Washington Irving
but that story Is fiction, while Hazo)
'Schmidt's sleep la attested by hun
jdreds who saw, and no ono In tnli
city will doubt its truth.
I It was on April 25 that she entered
on tho long sleep. The permanent
'awakening did not occur until Thurs
day, August 3, making It exactly 10C
'days that she was practically with
drawn from the world.
During that 100 days tho longest
'time that eho could be kept awak
!was a period of two hours, and th
longest period that she was asleep con
tinually was 61 hours.
, despite tho fact that during these
100 days, and for four weeks before
'they began, and for two or three days
tfter they were ended, she did not
leave her bed, she looks nnd feels Just
Kb well today bb when sho entered on
this record-breaking Bleep.
1 Her Intellect appears Just ns keen
ns ever; she la Interested In the
jworld'a doings, Ib cagor for informa

weighing about 125 pounds, and Is oj

, Five years ago she accepted a posi
tion In the telephone exchange In Van
dalla, and for five years she was em
ployed there. Sho became the chief
operator, and had charge of the long
distance wires. At first the work did
not appear onerous, but during the
last months those who knew "her best
could not fall to detect she was de
cidedly more nervous than she was
When she undertook the work.
Her father observed this, and he
prevailed on her to abandon tho work.
She was ambitious, and after at first
demurring she did glvo up the place,
but accepted a clerkship in the office
of the county clerk, and was employ
ed on the arduous task of making out
the tax books.
Her nervousness Increased to so
alarming an extent that a doctor was
called, and he diagnosed her condition
as a weakening of the nervous Bystem,
and that a complete rest and. no men
tal exertion 'was necessary to restore
her to her normal condition. She gavo
up work altogether and remained at
her homo and went Into society but lit
tle. During the latter part of March
her condition became such that her
family was alarmed. "There is no
cause for apprehension," the doctor
said. "It Is purely hysteria, and with
careful treatment she will eventually
recover, but It may be a long time."
j During the first week of her strange
'sleep the girl waB never awake to ex
ceed a few minutes at a time. She
appeared to suffer none. Her awaken
ings were calm and peaceful. - Thoy
were preceded by no nervous manifest
ations of any alarming character. She
lwould open her eyes and calmly ask
.some question, and apparently did not
realize that sho had been asleep to an
unusual extent The -fact that she bad
slept so long was kept from her for
fear that It would frighten her.
