PURE-BRED CATTLE ARE BEST
To Be Successful Little Details Must
Not Be OverlookedKeep Up
Records of Animals.
A well-selected breed of pure-bred
cattle Is a sourco of much plcnsura as
Jwell as proflt, but to bo successful de
tails must not bo overlooked. Many
breeders nnd beginners nro too care
(leas. They keep no accurnto records
,of blrthB, neglect their cattle, fall to
keep up tho records, do not take prop
er caro of their cnttlo In winter, and
are often caught with a lot of surplus
and unmerchantnblo bulls on hand nnd
.no buyers. Let mo add that tho only
way to dlsposo of surplus stock Is by
Judicious advertising In Boinc good
form and stock paper, says a writer
In an exchange.
Keep your herd In nlco, healthy con
dition, so you will not be ashamed to
show your stock to prospcctlvo buyers.
Mako a yearly exhibit at a fow leading
atato nnd county fairs and present
your stock In tho most attrnctlvo form
at home, ns well as at tho fairs. In de
scribing your 8alo Btock to prospcctlvo
A Pure-Bred Hereeford.
buyers by mall or otherwlhe, never
overestimate the merits of an animal.
Make good every statement, and make
every buyer a friend. It Is cheaper
to retain your old customers than to
hunt new ones.
There is no better way to restore or
keep up the fertility of your soil than
by keeping a herd of beef cattle, sav
ing and applying tho manure. A lib
eral supply of both grain and rough
feed should be grown and consumed
by the cattle. They should be kept
well-bedded in the barns and all straw
stacks converted into manure and re
turned to the soil. A well-bred animal
will not consume as much food as a
scrub, and will always sell at a profit,
even If Bent to (he butcher. The best
Individuals will bring a fair profit to
the owner when sold for breeding pur
poses. SAVE GRAIN IN FEEDING HOGS
Two Troughs Conveniently Arranged
That When Corn Is Devoured
More Will Follow:
Make two troughs six or seven
IncheB wldo and two and one-half feet
long. Fit'thcBo troughs together so
they will cross in the middle, writes J.
E. 'Spencer of Mount Pleasant, Tenn.,
In the Missouri Valley Farmer. Mako
a chuto five feet high, largo at the top
and six Inches squaro at tho .bottom,
to fit into tho cross of tho troughs,
leaving it thrco inches from tho bot
tom of trough. Shell your corn and
pour into tho chute. As tho hogs eat
the corn in tho trough more will fall
down. Tho hogs! feed is clean, and
no corn is wasted.
Raising Early Lambs.
The sole object in raising early
lambs 4s to produce a fine animal of
good size and flesh and get him to
market at the earliest posiblo mo
ment To do that requires good feed
ing, good care and good management
from tbe time he Is born until be 1b
sent to market.
Watch Unshod Colts.
Unshod colts need inspection of the
feet occasionally, as they aro likely to
crow more on one side than the other,
or to dovelop too much toe. A very
little rasping will keep tbe feet lav
Uentle Work for Mare.
Gentle work Tor the mare with foal
will not harm her, but she should not
be worked for a week before foaling.
HOLD ON TO GOOD BREEDERS
Pigs From Large-Bodied. Old Sows
Number More and Often Double
In Size When Farrowed.
(Dy J. W. ING.IIAM.)
Sows should be retained for n num
ber of years until their places can be
Oiled with their equals.
It Is well known that the progeny
from mnturo parents are superior to
those descended from young progeni
tors not fully developed. Hoars and
sows for breeding should bo kept in a
good, thrifty condition but not fnt.
Tho writer has atways-hcen trou

GOOD FEED-RACK FOR SHEEP

Tho rack is made with a pole for

Tho top rail is secured by a piece of

pulley located in a hole in tho wall

CLING TO BLACKS AND WHITES
Combination Always Popular Seems to
Show Little Falling Off In
In spite, of the rago for color which
threatened our peace of cyo so seri
ously in the earlylnys of summer, wo
remain very faithful to the time-honored
combination of black and whlto.
Amongst the most successful of white
lace dresses destined to adorn Ascot
Is ono mado in tunic stylo with broad
hems of black nlnon, n short, rounded,
black nlnon coat hanging In sack stylo
over this ruched with black ribbon
with a whlto plcot edge, and tho wholo

beneath with whlto chip with a foreat

waving their fronds over tho crown;
a parasol of white laco hemmed with
black chiffon will complete tho effect.

New Stocking Device.
Women who are afflicted with per
petual Jacob's ladders in tho tops of
their stockings should adopt an' ama
teur device that is successful in pre
venting such mishaps. Instead of us

sldo and front elastics substitute quarter-Inch
Batin ribbons. Fold a piece In

itself, leaving the two short ends free.

Picturesque Tunlo Frocks.
Despite tho success of taffotas
which had such a run during tho
spring, it was inevitable that the soft
clinging materials should sway for
summer, and consequently modos are
becoming somewhat simpler. What)
constitutes a pannier in the crisper
silks becomes merely a folded drapery!

Tbo favorite fashion of the moment'
is the tunic frock, for the tunlo is such
a versatile garment that it may be
said to merge into the pannier in some
of Its simpler forms. Moussellne dj
