Pure Bred Swine Business
Suffered Depression With

(Prepared by the UnltM Stelea Department
of Asricultur )
Sale prices of pure bred hogs reached
a very low level In 1SJ2, according to
n recent survey made by tho Unttocl
States Department of Agriculture.
Analysl'j of the reports on the sale of
30,:iS'J pare bred hogs In 10U2 Indicates
that the pure bred swine business has
suffered depression along with other
branched of agriculture. The reports
received present a fairy accurate pic
ture of tho business. In the opinion of
department olllclals. although they do
not represent n large number of nnl
ninls. Number and Price of Mogo.
The number of bogs of the flvo
breeds on which reports were received
nre: Berkshire, 1,70'Jj Chester White,
8,0'J2; Duroc Jersey, 8,Gfi!; Hamp
shire, 4,010; and Poland China, iZV2.
The average price reeeUed for each
breed, Including all ages and both
sexes at both private nnd miction sales
was: Berkshire, SHO.f.T; Chester
White, ?rj.7'-'; Duroc Jersey. $l.r).l)t;
Hampshire. $11.12; nnd Poland China,
$11.01. Auction sale averages were
from $10 to $25 nbove those sold at
prlvnte trenty. This difference, It Is
pointed out, Is due partly to tho large
number of pigs under eight months
of nge sold privately, whereas auction
sales are usually conllned largely to
more mature anlmnls nnd Involve n
larger number of bred gilts, bervlec
boars and bred sows.
Highest Prices by Breeds.
Snles reported nt less than $7.r0 per
head were omitted In calculating tho
averages, ns sales nt such low figures
were not considered to be legitimate
pure bred sales. The highest prices by
breeds Indicated by the reports were:
Chester White, $7-10; Poland China,
$500; Hampshire, $500; Duroc Jersey,
$550; and Berkshire, $250.
Of the :t0,H82 hogs reported upon,
121 brought $100 or moro. These were
distributed by breeds as follows: Berk
shire, 10; Chester White, 15S; Duroc
Jersey, 130; Hampshire, -17; Poland
China, 07. A few bred sows and gilts
sold nbove $150, but tho average price
was about $50.

Rye Is Most Excellent
- Crop to Pasture Swine
Rye probably Is tho best crop to use
for fall, winter and spring pasturo for
hogs. By putting In successive plant
ings from two to four weeks apart It
Is possible to hnvo fresh pasture nil
the time. Seeding for pnsturo should
bo much heavier thnn for a grain crop
from three to four bushels nn ncre
on good soil. Pasturing probably can
begin six weeks after seeding, and may
contluie, If the ryo Is not covered with
snow, until the following April.
Hog raisers enn "kill two birds with
one stone" by plowing under bnrn lots
und putting In Mich crops ns rye. In
tho first place, bogs need good succu
lent pasturo as much of the time as
possible, and In the second plnce they
need protection ngalnst Internal para
Mte.i, such as roundworms, the eggs of
which remain In tho soil. Turning
over the soil In the lots helps to get
rid of the pests, nnd the crop of for
age makes It n profitable operation. In
addition to providing cheap protein
feed, pasture crops aid as laxative and
require the hops to take n certain
amount of exorcise which Is necessary
to breeding animals and growing pigs.
Cure for Blackhead Has
Never Been Discovered
The United Stntes Department of
Agriculture lias this to say concerning
blackhead: "No positive cure for
blackhead has been found. As In tho
rase of all other Infectious diseases,
the sick bird should Immediately bo
removed from the flock to prevent a
further spread of the disease, and If
very sick it is best to kill It and burn
the body. Clean out the roosting plnce
nnd spread lime In the plnces most
frequented by tho turkeys. Keep a
disinfectant In the drinking water;
potassium permanganate Is most often
used, n sufficient quantity of tho crys
tals being ndded fo tho wnter to give
It n wine color, which for every gallon
of water will take ubout as much of
the chemical ns enn bo plnced on n
dime. If the turkeys aro being fed
heavily, their ration should bo re
duced, as overfeeding predisposes to
tho disease. The feeding of sour milk
has been found to bo of ndvnntnge in
keeping turkeys In good henlth and In
reducing the activities of the organ
isms cnuslng blnckhend."
In Cooling Milk Entire
Mass Must Be Stirred
In cooling milk It Isn't sufllclent to
Just set the can of milk in a tub of
cold wnter. Tho milk must bo stirred
thoroughly until tho entire mass of
milk Is about the temporaturo of tho
water. When the milk Is not stirred,
tho mill; in tho center of tho can Is
not affected by tho cold water until
tho bncterla have had on opportunity
to Increase greatly In numbers and as
n result tho whole mass of milk sours.
Tho milk In contact with tho container
will bo cooled, but tbnt Isn't Mlllplnnr.
Control Measures for '
Flag Smut of Wheat
Several Ways Outlined for
Holding Disease in Check.
(1'repared by the United State Department
of Agriculture.)
Flag smut of wheat, n disease that
has been known by Its presence
throughout the world for many years,
was first discovered In the United
States In some fields of wheat In Illi
nois In 1011). Although Hie disease has
not caused much loss in the Infested
area, the nrea Is gradually enlarging
and Indications are that It may becomo
n serious disease unless adequate con
trol measures are put Into effect. Tho
symptoms of flag smut and suggested
control measures are discussed In De
partment Circular 273, Just Issued by
the United States Department or Agri
culture. I-'Iag smut appears ns black stripes
running lengthwise in the leaf and
sheaths of the wheat plant which be
come twisted and rarely produce a
head. Infected plants are usually more
or less dwarfed. The disease may b
held in check nnd reduced In quantity
by Judicious quarantine measures, seed
treatment, crop rotation and othei
sanitary measures, and by growing re
sistant varieties of wheat through ex
periments a number of varieties have
been found which are highly resistant
to or possibly even immune from the
disease. It is possible that by the uso
of such varieties, kept free from sus
ceptible mixtures, the disease may be
entirely eradicated.

ment of Agriculture, Washington.
Sweet Clover Is Best of
Different Honey Plants
Score another for sweet clover which
not so long ago was regarded as a nox
ious roadside weed. Sweet clover Is
tho greatest honey plnnt in the United
Stntes, according to O. C. Matthews of
Illinois university's division of bee cul
ture, who points out that the several
varieties of the plant furnish succes
sive bee pasture from spring until
frosts In the fall.
"The yellow biennial comes nlong
about the time dandelions go out of
bloom," says Mr. Matthews, "and so
tides bees over the critical period Just
before the blooming of white clover.
The white biennial blooms after white
clover and lasts well Into August. Hit
bam, the white annual, begins to bloom
soon nfter the first of August nnd con
tinues until killed by frost. Tho bee
keeper can keep a constant honey flow
In his community if he can but per
suade the farmers around to grow all
three varieties of sweet clover."
Mr. Matthews tells of nn Illinois bee
keeper who furnished sweet clover
seed to farmers when It wns $2 n
pound until there were more than 400
acres within rench of his bees. From
this ncrenge he received n shnre of the
seed crop and many tons of honey.
Somo of his colonies yielded nearly
500 pounds.
"Grow sweet clover," Is Mr. Mat
thews' ndvlec to heekoepcrs. "Furnish
seed to your neighbors, study methods
of getting It started and persuade road
supervisors to leave It standing along
the roadside."
Sweet Clover Excellent
Pasture for Dairy Cows
Sweet clover ninkes nn excellent
pnsture for dairy cows. Much more
feed can be grown on an acre of sweet
clover pasturo than on an acre of blue
grass pasture. After the plants get
well stnrted, drought lias very little
effect on Its growth. However, sweet
clover will not grow on sour soil nnd II
will ba n wnste of time und money to
make the nttempt unless your land It
sweet. Hotter lmvo your farm bureau
test your soil and If It is sour npply
several tons of ground limestone pei
It Is best to sow It In tho spring
with barley or oats. Usunlly by nbout
September the sweet clover will be
about n foot high nnd can then bo pas
ture for nbout sis weeks. Tho nest
summer It can be pastured the entire
season. Sweet clover Is n biannual
and will Inst only two yenrs. The seed
shoul be Inoculated before it Is sown.
Saving Can Be Made on
Feeds Bought in Autumn
Dairymen who must have mill fecdi
for their herds next winter should buj
tliejii now nnd thus savo on costs, snyi
IJ. A. Hnnson, dairy extension special'
Ii,tv University of Mlnnesotn. "The
practice of purchasing a few socks ol
brwn or ollmenl whenever needed li economy," says Mr. Hnnson.
"Tho cost of feed Is n lnrgo fnctor In
fluencing tho profits, and n good sav
ing can bo made on ton purchases ol
ollmenl or cotton-seed meal nt thti
time rather than wnltlng until the win-tt-r
months nro here."

Is to allow three-fourths of an ourtt

Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never

Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from reports from druggists
who arc constantly in direct touch with
the public, thcro is one preparation thnt
has been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healing
influcnco of Dr. Kilmer's Swninp-ltoot is
soon realized. It stands the highest for
its remarkable record of success.
An examining physician for one of tins
prominent Life Insurance. Companies, in
an interview on the subject, made the as
tonishing statement that ono reason why
to ninny applicants for insurance are re
jected is because, kidney trouble is fo
common to the American people, nnd the
large majority of those whose applications
are declined do not even suspect that they
have tho disease. Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Boot is on Bale at all dmg stores in bottles
of two sires, medium nnd large.

great preparation send ten cents to Dr.
