The three diseases which kill off the

rickets , "lumpy jaw" and tuberculosis.
They ore canned In the main by the
wrong food being given , want of sun
light and poor \eutihitlon. An animal

first drinks its blood and then devours
Its organs. The Iwui meat Is eaten last ,
if at all. But for sonic reason it has

Butter makers kick on farm separa
tors , says the Northwest Farmer. Some
of the butter makers are making a live
ly kick ngalnst the Introduction of the
farm sepnrntor. They might as well
kick against a stone wnll , for kicking
will not stop Its coming. There is only
one tiling thnt will check Its rapid In
troduction , and that Is better skimmilk
from the creamery. Farmers are get
ting more and more determined to
raise good calves , and they propose to
do this with tiojurator skimmilk. If
the butter makers don't clean up their
pumps , plpcc and tanks and give the
eklmmllk a thorough pasteurizing the
farmer Is certain to lend an attentive
car to the form separator agent , a sep
arator will be installed on trial , and
you can count on its staying. It will
then be too late to protest , for after a
farmer pays $100 for a separator he is
quite apt to find a factory that will
take his cream. Dairymen of experi
ence have found thnt the best of calves
can be raised on good separator milk ,
and every Intelligent butter maker
knows how to return It In good condi
While most of the seed * stores sell
special lawn-grass mixtures , which ,
perhaps , contain a half-dozen or more
varieties of grass seed , we doubt If any
of them will give better results than to
mix one bushel of Kentucky bluegrnss ,
a bnlf bushel of clean redtop , or n
bushel In the chaff , one peck of sweet
vernal and one pound of white clover ,
the above being amount for one acre.
The bluegrass Is cnilier than the rod-
top , nnd the redtop resists summer boat
better , while the fragrant , sweet vernal
Is good both early and lute. Have
the ground thoroughly pulverized and
made rich with about six hundred
pounds lawn dressing per aoio. which
has more nitrogen and putjiMi than Un

prefer the artificial fertilizer to the

I.ln c < l Oil CiiKn.
It Is an English tradition that .some
thing like n century upo a farmer
the refuse from a linseed or
oil mill to manure a Held , and then
turned sheep on It. Going ther * a
while aftenvuul he found that tlio
sheep had eaten the srass and tlio ma
nure as well and hud made a better
growth than those In other Holds. This
Is said to have been the beginning of
feeding Unseed cake to sheci ) . Possi
bly It Is true , for tome of our most
beneficial discoveries hav been made
In ways as accidental or providential
as this. Exchange.
Many animals lack In constitutional
vigor , simply becaune their parents
have been allowed to get too fat , nnd
have not had enough exercise to keep
their muscles firm and the digestive
organs active , while others have failed
l > ecause of the feeder having gone to
the opposite extreme , failed to feed
enough , and lu giving exercise have ex
posed them to cold and hard usage.
The box stall or pen Is bettor for tha
brooding animal than closer confine
ment , and as much good food ns they
will cat better than n scanty ration , but
It should not be what Is called cnrbon- )
nceous or heating and fattening food , ,
; but such as to produce muscle anil
' growth of frame. Out-of-door exercise
'Is needed , but thnt does not mean
standing still In n cold wind or storm
until chilled through , or being turned
out to drink Ice water to chill the In
ternal organs and the unborn offspring.
The Hrst grass In spring Is watery and
has very little nutrition In It , partly be
cause It Is usually to be found on tin
low lauds , \\hero the better grade ot
graces do not grow. Vet we used to
like to get cattle and sheep Into It ai
soon as It was large enough to glv
them a fair bite , as such grass Is poor
at the best , and almost worthless after
It gets lough ami harsh , lint we novel
depended much upon It as food for
them , excepting for its succulent tjuwH-
ties.Ve fed as much hay and grain
the morning before wo lot them into
pasture as if they v > ere to remain in th
yard Then we took them In early , and
at night they were fed at the bam
again. The green grass loosened the
bowels , and perhaps we had a little
more milk , or a little thriftier growth ,
but It made the. change from hay to
pasture more gradual , and they seemed
to relish it , especially if the roots were
all gone , as they usually weie likely to
beat that season. That \\.is before the
days of the silo , and If we had on
well filled we might think It better now
to feed ensilage , and let the bog gra i
grow to be used as bedding , or to be
u ed as a covering for strawberries or
spinach , or as a mulch for some other
crops. American Cultivator.
We see much said In our Western ex
changes about the \alue of the Angora
goat to destroy brush. If that Is their
strong point we do not want them. It
u.scd to be the fashion to advocate
keeping Hheep to kill weeds and briars.
They will surely do that If kept on
them , but we never knew nny one to
start with sheep .with thnt us his main
Incentive , who did not come to tlio
conclusion that there was no profit In
sheep. If we want good wool and mut
ton the sheep must have something beside -
side briars to feed upon , and If they
choose to take a few briars or wceda
as a sort of condiment with the other
food , well and good. So we think If
Angora goats are kept to kill brush en
tirely they will furnish but little mo
hair nnd a poor flesh. Give us the old
plan for killing brush , mow In July ,
burn In August , and then let sheep pick
u few of the tender sprouts if thi\v
want them the next spring. America ) )
What Kestilt to the Soil ?
I would not seem to undervalue sta
ble manure , but It Is a mistake to sup
pose that laud must grow poor when
wo cense to feed everything upon the
farm. It ls > not necessary to sacrifice
all income for the rake of keeping up
the soil. Now that we know moru
about the composition of the .soil , wti
know thnt productiveness depends In1
great degree upon the prewnce of or
ganic mattci in It , and not solely upon
stable manure or commercial fertiliz
ers. The Ideal condition would be ono
In which a goodly number of live stock
could be Kept \vith profit on nearly ev
ery farm , but the cattle feeders of moat
fertile Eastern valleys must give up n
farm scheme that makes fat cattle and
wheat the only cash products. The
list of cash crops will be made longer ,
and clover , peas and * ods must be free
ly used to supplement the manure.

DON'T YOU HEAR BABY CRY ?
Do you forget that summer's coming with
all its dangers to the little ones all troubles
bred in the bowels.
The summer's heat kills babies and little
children because their little insides are not in
good , clean , strong condition.
Winter has filled the system with bile.
Belching , vomiting up of sour food , rash ,
flushed skin , colic , restlessness , diarrhoea or
constipation , all testify that the bowels are out
If you want the little ones to face the coming dangers with
out anxious feat for their lives , see that the baby's bowels ore
gently , soothingly , but positively cleaned out in the spring time ,
and made strong and healthy before hot 'weather sets in.
The only safe laxative for children , pleasant to take ( they
ask for more ) is CASCARETS. Nursing mothers make thci *
milk mildly purgative for the baby by eating a CASCARET
now and then. Mama eats a CASCARET baby gets the
benefit. Try it ! Send fet a JOc box of CASCARETS to-day and you will find that , as wo
guarantee , all irregularities of the little and big childrens insides are
