MISSOURI SWINE HOUSE PLAN
Building With Concrete Floor Is
Shown In Illustration Hogs Ma

An excellent plan for a hog house
is given by Wlllintn Crltchcll In the
Missouri Valley F.irmer as follows:
Illustration No. 1 sliowa tho lloor
plan of my hog house, 21 by CO feet.
In this house thero are 10 stalls, C by
5 feel dhlded Into a sleeping place 3
by C feet and n feeding place 5 by G
feet ono cooker room 8 by 12 feet,
one feed bin 8 by 12 feet, and a drive
way 8 feet wide with sliding roller
No. 2 gives nn Idea of the concrete
floor, 21 feet wide. A Is the Bleeping
place, H the feeding floor with a 2-Inch
rise next to bedding to keep out Utter,
C the driveway S feet wide. A, C and A
are all on the same level. The feeding
floors (BH) nro G Inches higher than
AA, sloping to 4 inches higher than C.
All Utter drops into tho driveway,
where it can be taken up and hauled
out as fertilizer. No. 3 shows the
house plan, with lighting space at top
and small swinging doorB at bottom.
.Those doors are hinged at the top
bo as to swing both In and out. Tho
. hogs soon learn to open them, and they
always stay shut. I would use 4 by 4
dimension lumber and make building

No. 1, Floor Plan; No. 2, Cross 8ectlon
of Feeding Floor; No. 3, Form of
cccond, giving a window space at top
of 4 feet. Placing a post at each cor
ner of every stall gives plenty of
strength; then by putting In a few
girts, siding up with No. 1 Btock boards
nailed on up and down and stripping
tho cracks, you have a good building.
The roof should have half pitch. Pieces
of 2 by 4, 10 feet long, make tho lower
rafter and these cut la the middle
make tho upper rafter.
DEVICE FOR RINGING SWINE
Crate Illustrated for Operation That
One Man Operate Without
Here is a device that Is a great help
for ringing bogs. One man can operate
It without any trouble. Hack it up to
the hog pen door, run the hog In be
tween tho slats n and b, which are
then pulled together bo tight that
he can be handled without trouble.
The crate should be 1 foot 10 Inches
wide, 2 feet 8 inches high and 3 feet
long, with a solid floor mounted on
runners. The crate should have a
top as well as a sliding door at the
rear. The sliding levers, a, b, are
made of 1 by 4 inch hardwood, with a
notch cut in each to fit tho neck of
the hog. There should be holes In the
bottom board, c, to adjust the levers
for largo or small pigs.
The Cawllng Cattle.
Tho grower of beef cattle is sure to
weed out tho ono that is continually
buwllng, when it should bo grazing
for tho simple reason that there Is
jnoro waste than gain of adipose tls
cue at Mich a time. Tho stock con

trying to break into forbidden fields,
possibly not nearly as good, aro tho
ones that mnko tho most gain In

The flesh condition of a sheep can
not bo judged by looking at It. Al

bar hangs a foot support. with a bond

tho blacksmith desires, nlso preventing
the beast from kicking.
OXFORD SHEEP ARE PROLIFIC
Breed Originated In England from
Cross of Cotswold and Hamp
, shire Downs Grow Rapidly.
Oxford sheep originated In England,
in tho early part of the 19th century
from a cross of Cotswold and Hamp
shire Downs. They hnye been known
slnco 1857 as Oxfordshire or Oxford
Downs, and are now widely distrib
uted over the United States and Can
ada. They are the largest and heav
iest of tho Down breeds. When In
good flesh the rams should weigh 250
to 275 pounds, and tho ewes from 200
to 225 pounds. The wool Is rather
coarser than any other of the medium
wool brcedB, and the fleece Is heavier,
weighing from 10 to 12 pounds un
washed. The face Is usually an even dark
gray or brown, with or without a gray
spot on the tip of tho nose. They are
best adapted for lands furnishing good
pasture, and do not succeed as well
tinder range conditions or on rugged,
broken pastures. The ewes aro very
prolific, triplets being not uncommon.
Tho lambs grow rapidly and are of
good form. The chief shortcoming
of the breed is that It Is not as hardy
as Bomo others.
Grads Up Pig Stock.
To grade up your pig stock Is ua
Important as grading up the dairy
cows. The most conservative courso
is to select tho breed most popular In,

LESSON FOR AUGUST 18.
THE RULER'S DAUGHTER.
IXSSON THXT-Mark Fill-n
OOI.nn.V Ti:.T "Ami tnklnir tho
child by tho Imml tio tmlth unto hir,
Tnlltlui ctiml; which Is. ticlnjj Interpreted,
D.-unst-l, I any unto thee, urine." Mnrlc
This Is ono of tho most beautiful
Etorles of tho Dlhlo. H appeals to tho
loving parents' heart, nnd charms tho
attention of every child In the homo.
The introduction of tho woman who
touched his garment is referred to by
threo of tho gospel writers nnd nhow
us nn intensely interesting eldo light
as to tho reception accorded Jesus
ditBlng his Galilean ministry.
The dramatis perkonno la ntt follows:
First, tho father. From his life he Is
about to lose all tho poetry and music
of his home.
Second, the child. Sho was only
twelve yonrs old, just on tho threshold
of Jewish womanhood. It tnkes no
Imagination to picture hor life up to
this time, how it hnd entwined itself
Into the heart of tho father as well iib
tho other loved ones. Tho stricken
diseased child is yet to be found In
the land, thnt Is what makes the
picture bo vivid. Why this Buffering?
Why these separations? Wo cannot
reply but our Heavenly Father knows
It all, and some dny we will read his
answer in the glory of his presence.
Third, tho woman. Who, where
from, nor whither to, we aro not told.
Only one of that vast throng who hnd
Just faith to touch the hem of his
garment, and she was made whole.
Calm Dignity of Jesus.
And lastly, tho Galilean prophet.
One whose response to tho cry of
heed was so Instantaneous albeit
without haste or fret or unrest. Wo
can, In imagination, see them as they
walk along tho roadway. Jesus cer
tainly had a meaning in pausing ns
they are interrupted for wo must re
member that tho woman was healed
the moment she touched his garment
and before they pnuscd. Having
taught the multitude and encouraged
the heart of Jalrus they reach tho
homo and allowing none but his elect
three, Peter, James and John, he en
ters the house, which Is now In a
tumult due to tho weeping nnd walling
of the mourners, both tho professional
and the bereaved. Again wo are .Im
pressed with the calm dignity of
Jesus as he asked them "Why this tu
mult? Tho child only Bleeps." Their
laughing Bcorn Is due to their Ignor
ance of tho power of this man, though
the record is a strong emphasis upon
the fact that tho child was really
When he had turned the unbelievers
out, Jesus takes the father nnd mother
and the disciples into tho death
chamber, the occasion was too sacred
for tho mere manifestation of power'
before a crowd. Taking the child by
tho hand, a personal touch, not by
proxy, Jesus speaks those wonderful
words which form the golden text.
Beautiful Love Picture.
Having restored the child to Its
parents Jesus admonishes them not to
publish the news broadcast, evidently
as he was not ready to prccipltato
matters In tho minds of tho multitude
for of a Burety ho knew thnt In cer
tain quarters tho fact of tho cure
would be known.
This Is a beautiful love picture:
1. The father's love v. 22-24.
(a) His need.
(b) His position, "at Jesus'
(c) Ills plea, "I pray thee."'
(d) His Insistence, "besought
2. The stranger's plea v. 25-24.
(a) An Interruption.
(b) Of long standing.
(c) Jesus' knowledge.
(d) Jesus' response,
(o)) Her confession,
(f) Her blessing.
4. The Master's love v. 35-43.
(a) Jesus' knowledge (child not
dead In his sight).
(b) Delay not mean refusal.
(c) The tender resurrection, an
answer to faith.
(d) The provision for all her
Sorrow brought Jalrus to Jesus and
lorrow today brings more men to
JesuB than perhaps any other ono
means, Jalrus wob a ruler of tho
synagogue and ns such had to lay
aside his pride and bis hostility to
make his plea or to accept ecrvlco of
Jesus, and so must we lay asido our
pride when weebmo to tho Xnzareno,
casting-ourselves as did Jalrus In tho
dust at his feet, but notice Jesus did
not suffer him long to remnln in that
There are three recorded instances
whero Jesuo raised tho dend; this
"only dnughter," nn "only son" of a
widow and tho "only brother," Laza
rus of Mary and Martha. Jesus Is
saying still to tho afflicted and to tho
fearful, "only believe." Ho wants ub
to learn that tho tap root of fear is
unbelief. His only condition is that
wo believe. Jesus did not stop to nrguo
with the scornful mourners. Argu
ments never convince men, but deeds
will shut the mouth of the most
We have In this lesson all the nee
isaary evidence of the Deity of Jesus.
TEMPLE TO RHODES

Where the Structure Is Built
Beautiful View It Obtained
From Spot Made Road.
Tjondon. Tho memorial erected to
Cecil Ithoiles on tho slopes of Table
Mountain Is both magulllcuiit nnd lit
ting. Tho site was always a favorite one
with Rhodes, who believed thnt tho
view from the eastern spurs of tho
mountain excelled any other prospect
In tho woi Id for beauty. He made, a
broad road to It and placed n seat
there. From It n very fine view Is ob
tained of Table liny In tho Atlantic to
tho north nnd of Fake Hay In tho In
dian Ocean to tho south, ns well ns
tho Capo Flats and tho distant moun
tain ranges stretching for a hundred
miles to the cast nnd north.
Not far from this seat It was Ills In
tention at ono tlmo to build n great
temple, as ho culled it, tho object of
which was twofold. Ho intended to
mako a huge cnclosuro for his lions,
that they might bo housed with tho
greatest possible freedom and umld
natural and beautiful surroundings.
Tho idea in his mind was that tho
lions, enjoying a largo range of liberty
and magnificently housed, would nt-t
tract peoplo to tho mountainside,'
whero art and nnturo together at
their best must lift them out of them
selves and Inspire them' with lofty;
Remembering that such hnd been,
Rhodes' imaginings on the mountain'
side, tho memorial commttteo decided
that tho best form for the monument;
would bo a temple dedicated to him
self. The monument has been built of tho
granlto which forms the natural base
of Table Mountain and has been work
ed to a tcxturo which Is not bo fine nB
to bo out of scale or harmony with Its
In front of the monument Is the
statuo "Physical Energy," by F. Watts,
H. A., representing a man reining In
his horse nftcr some great deed and
scanning tho futuro for his next
achievement. It was not designed by
Cecil Rhodes Memorial.
Watts especially for Rhodes or his
monument, but was presented as a
gift to South Africa out of admiration
for the genius of Cecil Rhodes.
Suggestions wcro made to place it
elsewhere. But It was Rhodes' dream
to make the Cape Peninsula the cen
ter of art and beauty in South Africa.
It seemed nntural, therefore, thnt-this
gift of tho greatest of English artists
should bo placed In Rhodes' monument
on Table Mountain.

to the portico, are tho work of the
