AVOID RISK IN BUYING PAINT.
You tnko a good deal of risk if you
buy white lead without having abso
lute assurance as to its purity and
quality. You know white lead Is often
adulterated , often misrepresented.
But there's no need at all to take
any chances. The "Dutch Boy Paint
er" trade mark of the National Lead
Company , the largest makers of gen
uine white lead , on a package of
Whlto Lead , is a posltivo guarantee
of purity and quality. It's as depend
able as Uio Dollar Sign. If you'll
wrlto the National Lead Company ,
Woodbrldgo Bldg. , New York City ,
ihcy will send you a simple and cer
tain outfit for testing white lead , and
n valuable book on paint , free.
A Doctor's Disadvantage.
"In ono way , " said a collector , "it
Is easier to get money from a doctor
than anybody else who Is slow pay.
It Is moro difficult for him to swear
that he hasn't been able to make any
collections himself since the first of
the year. A doctor's reception room is
open to all possible patients. A col
lector with a grain of Ingenuity can
find a way to worm out of the men on
the waiting list Information as to the
terms of payment. After an Inter
view with three or four persons who
have paid spot cash for treatment and
who have told the collector they paid ,
it takes n mighty nerve on the part of
the doctor to Insist thate hasn't a
dollar to his name. "
The extraordinary popularity of flno
white goods this summer makes the
choice of Starch a matter of. great im
portance. Defiance Starch , being free
from all injurious chemicals , is the
only ono which is safe to use on fine
fabrics. Its great strength as a stiffener -
er makes half the usual quantity ol
Starch necessary , with the result of
perfect finish , equal to that when the
goods wore now.
The following extract from a letter
of thanks is cherished by its recipient :

OF FIELDS FOR FENCING
Carefully Wprkcd-Out System of Crop Rotation for HOJJ
Pasturing By D. A. Gaumnltz , M. S. Minnesota.
Since fencing Is quite an Item In the
cost of pastures and In hogging off
corn , the arrangement of Holds in
Riich a way as to use the least possible
amount , of fencing and still have the
hogs near the farm buildings so they
may he sheltered , watered and fed
economically is essential. The fact
that clover is one of the best crops for
pasture and that It cannot be depend
ed upon to live for more than ono
year's pasturing , will suggest at
once the idea of n rotation of
crops on a few small fields near the
farmstead In which the crops may he
conveniently pastured. A hog pasture
plowed up makes one of the most de
sirable places to grow corn.
Such a piece of corn land , if fenced ,
could very easily and profitnblyjie fed
off with hogs. Corn land disked and
well prepared Is an excellent place to
grow any kind of a grain crop , and
clover sown with the grain crop on
such soil has an excellent chance of
being In good condition for pasturing
the following year. Thus a productive
three-year rotation is naturally worked
out. See Fig. 1.
Fig. 1. Three-Year Rotation for Hogs.
Crops Underlined Are to Be Fed
Four fields permanently fenced
near the farmstead would make a
more desirable rotation than would
three fields , and the cost of fencing
will he less since the fence would he
in use three years out of four , rath
er than two years out of three.

In laying out a rotation for hogs
the number that it is desired to keep
should he decided upon then the size
of the fields can he determined. The
larger the fields used , other things be
ing equal , the cheaper the cost of fenc
ing per acre , and the more convenient
ly the fields are worked. However , it

is not advisable to tftinco hog tight
very much moro land than can ho
conveniently utilized by hogs , as
cheaper fences that are Just as effec
tive may he used for cattle.
Some of th < Important points to
consider in laying out a practical ro
tation for hogs are : First , number
of animals to he kept ; second , con
venience In feeding while in the Hold ;
third , shape of fields so that they may
he easily worked ; and fourth , the
least possible number of iods of fenc
ing to the am inclosed. With thest
points before one , and oacli considered
ored , a rotation may bo laid out Jij
telligently and to fit most any farm.
The following plans are offered ai
of how several farms havt
ic-planned to allow for u rotatioi
hogs. These plans aio chosen U
show how the suggestions In this arti
cle may he applied to farm condi
tions. They also show the value and
economy of planning a farm for a
definite purpose. The amount of
fencing required per aero to Inclose
the hog lots ou those ( liftwant farms
varies from 1C to 29 rods.

land Is needed to supply the extra feed ,
the prospect of prolltablo returns Is Kood ,
for tlui labor cost of producing pork Is
hero reduced to the minimum.
The remainder of the farm Is divided
Into three IS-ncrc Holds , for a rotation
of rorn , Kraln and clover. The whole ar-
laiiKement makes the farm well adapted
to dairying and hog raising.
