Why the Doctor asks :
"Do you drink coffee "
IF you are troubled with
headaches, insomnia, in
digestion, or sluggishness of
the liver or bowels, prob
ably one of the first ques
tions your doctor asks is,
"Do you drink coffee?"
He knows, better than
anyone else, that the drug,
caffeine, present in coffee,
tends to irritate the nervous
system and is a frequent

Lloyd Taube of Marion,
Iowa, Wins First Prize
With His Calf.
Lloyd Taube, a seentecn- ear-old
boy from Marlon, Linn county, Iowa,
had the ptoud distinction of exhibiting
thu grand champion baby beef at the
Iowa state fair, held at Des Moines,
In what was probably the largest show
of tUis character ever held. The boys
and girls whose animals had won at
the various county fairs were entitled
to compete for state honors at IVs
Moines, and a total of -110 head were
lined up before the Judges when the
state contest was called.
The steer with which l.lnjd won the
highest honor again1-! this strong Held
was n pure bred Aberdeen Angus calf
named "Tlnoj". lie was a February
calf, sired by Urln liny II of Lone Ash.
Lloyd bought him In September and
fed him largely on a homo-grown ra

The calf did so well that his owner en

free trip to the International Live
Stock e.pnsltlon, which will he held in
Chicago the first week In December.
Took His Pet to Fair.
Spurred on by this success, Lloyd
took his pet steer to the Iowa state
fair. This animal and one other were
the only entries from Linn county,
which made his subsequent triumph
nil the more notevortby. After the
large classes of well-lltted beeves had
been sifted down by the breed Judges,

Lloyd has been In club work for six
years and has won at a county show

ed a trip to the International, and It
wns the Inspiration received whllo at
Chicago that later proved u big factor
In achieving Ids crowning triumph.
While he will again attend that pre
mier exhibition of the live stock world
this year, he will not exhibit Tlney
there himself, as he had promised n
well-known Angus exhibitor living In
his home town to let him have the
calf at the close of the Iowa state fair.
This breeder will continue to grow
out the steer and will enter him at
Chicago In the open classes against
the highest fitted beeves of the most
skilled and experienced exhibitors. It
will bo interesting to wntch how this

will rank when pitted against the
finest products of the noted veterans

Corn for Silage Should
Be Practically Matured
Silage com should be allowed to
grow as late as the season permits, or
until tho corn Is practically matured,
I. o the kernel has become hard and
dented. The stalk Is usually somewhat
jjrecn as late as this stage. Many ex
periments have been conducted which
show that a creator amount of feed
of a better quality and that will keep

Entirely Dry Fodder
Will Make Good Silage
Tanners who do not get their sllngo
made before frost may have gooil
silage If they will utilize the dry fod
der for this purpose, according to the
live stock men at the New York State
College of Agriculture.
I'Mdder silage not only makes better
feed than dry fodder, but It Is also
mule coincident to feed. Bvon though
the corn fodder appears dry and wilt
ed, the stalk will be found to contain
considerable moisture. If there Is not
enough moisture In the corn to puck
the corn well In the silo, additional
water should he added. By adding
this to the fnnbox the fan thoroughly
distributes the nddltlonnl water.
Kven entirely dry fodder will make
good silage, providing the water Is
added in equal weight to tho fodder.
In any case, tho fodder should bo
tramped down thoroughly.
Sllngo made In this manner will keep
well. The quality Is not quite as good
ns that made from corn cut while still
green and no extra water added, but It
makes excellent feed. Silage inndo
from corn fodder, further, Is not nenrly
us sour. It has n pleasant sweet smell
and the cows not only like It, but
thtlve on It as well.
Is Recommended as
Economical Swine Feed
The feeding of rye us a substitute
for corn In fattening pigs Is held by
Minnesota experiment station and ag
ricultural extension men to ho good
economical practice in view of the pre
vailing market prices for the two
"As about 102 pounds of rye have
given the same results as 100 pound
of corn," says II. O. Kitvnrul, live stock
specialist, "rye at present prices would
be the most economical feed. Accord
ing to Henry & Morrison's 'Feeds and
Feeding,' ground rye Is worth 01 per
cent ns much per ton as ground corn
for hog feeding.
"Rye Is not as palntablc as corn and
hogs will not consume It ns freely.
Neither Is It as good n feed for horses
or cattle as It Is for fattening hogs,
bur by mixing It with more pnlatablo
feed, such as corn and oats, It mny be
satisfactorily fed. It Is hnrder to
mastlcnte than some other grains and
should be ground or rolled for best re
sults." Winter Cover Crop Will
Afford Soil Protection
A winter cover crop protects tho
land from washing during tho winter
months, and at tho same time con
serves the plant food materials made
available during this period. Soil
which remnlns bare during tho winter
loses much valuable plant food by
leaching. A cover crop would make
use of this plant food and release It
the next spring In time for tho crop of
cotton or corn to obtain It.
Whenever possible the winter cover
crop should be a legume, for legumes
nre able by reason of their well
known ability to obtain nitrogen from
the air to Increase greatly the store
of this clement In the soil.
Storing Vegetables for
Home Use During Winter
It Is to the Interest of every family
to grow each season a supply of those
vegetables suitable for storage, and to
seo that they are properly stored for
use during tin winter months when
prices nro high and vegetables often
hard to get. Less work and less ex
pense, ure Involved In storing vege
tables than In keeping them by other
methods, as canning, drying, and pre
serving, and the product retains its
characteristic flavor much better.
Careful Handling Is of
Importance With Apples

tance) In storing apples. Bough handling
results In stem bruises, broken skin

No business can succeed unlets its product Is profitably sold.
Most farms have n fine production department but no sales
department. They grow crops and stock bought by buyers who
set the price.
One of the chief rcaso.11 for this unprofitable situation is the
average farmer's poor facilities for moving his crops or stock
to the plncc where he can sell or ship to the best advantage.
Because of the time and expense of horse delivery millions of
dollars worth of produce spoils annually on American farms.
The saving of this waste would, in many cases, change a losing
