The farmer of today'buys a much

The widespread tendency In the city
to Increase the amount of Quaker Oats

demonstrations by scientific men that

no leavening power. These powdcra nre so
carelessly made from inferior materials
that they will not make light , wholesome
food , further , these cheap baking now-
den have . very imall percentage of leav
ening gas ; therefore it takes from two to
three times as much of such powder to
taise the cake or biscuit ns it does of Calti-
tnet Baking Powder. Therefore , in th6
long run. the actual cost to the consumer
of the cheap powders is more than Calu-

POULTRY THRIVE ON ALFALFA
Experiment Demonstrates That It Is
Excellent as Green Feed for
the Growing Chickens.
( DT MUS. U rtOBEKTSON. )
I have demonstrated to my satis
faction during the past year , that nl-
"alfn excels clover both as a green
food for growing chicks , and a winter
relish for adult fowls.
Wo have a field of ten acres sown
to alfalfa stretching Just below the
colony coops nnd pens where I raise
A year ago last summer I noticed
that as soon as I gave the chicks free
range they would seek this field nnd
spend hours in the growing alfalfa ,
particularly when it blossomed ready
Dy close observation I found that
they ate the tender tops and purple
buds ravenously and certainly seemed
to thrive on the food.
I tried sowing some seed In my
nursery pen , and it was wonderful to
see how the chicks enjoyed It wee ,
fluffy fellows just from the incubator.
This sot mo to thinking.
When last winter came on I housed
100 pure Buff Cochin pullets In a fair
ly roomy nnd comfortable house. The
large hay barn was stored to thereof
roof with alfalfa nnd millet hay. Prom
the former the leaves and dried blos
soms , still green In hue. fell In masses
of fine fragrant litter , useless to the
cattle and horses which only ate the
All winter long I used this alfalfa
chaff for litter in my houses , bedding
the floor deep every day. The hena
scratched In It for their grain nnd ate
every available bit they could pick up.
Dy night the floor would bo bnro
and n fresh supply was thrown In
ready for the morning meal.
My hens have always done well as
winter layers , but last season they
outdid themselves and made a record
which Is the wonder and envy of all
1 give the credit to alfalfa , especial
ly ns some close neighbors with warm
er houses ono of them heated who
bought patent egg-making foods , pro
tein and blood meal In largo quanti
ties and who have bone mills and fed
green bone all winter , with oyster
shells , mica grit nnd cut clover got
next to no eggs at all.
In fact , the one who has the heat
ed chicken house , did not average
three eggs a week and the other bare
ly got enough for family use. Ono
has a fiock of 500 Brown Leghorns
and the other 250 pure Barred Rocks
In past winters eggs from my old
hens have been few and far between.
It was the pullets that laid the eggs ,
but not only did the hens lay last
winter but want to set Just as If It
was summer weather.
I broke up ns many as n dozen
broody hcnp last January. In the face
of facts like those I naturally glvo the
credit to alfalfa.

I feed and the only grain they had was

The Tenderfoot Farmer
Itvas one of these experimental farmers , who put green
spectacles on his cow and fed her shavings. His theory
rras that it didn't matter what the cow ate so long as the
rras fed. The questions of digestion and nourishment had
not entered into his calculations.
It's only a "tenderfoot" farmer that would try tuch
nn experiment with a cow. But many a farmer feeds him *
self regardless of digestion and nutrition. He might almost as well eat shav
ings for nil the good ho gets out of his food. The result is that the stomach
grows "weak" the action of the organs of digestion and nutrition are impaired
and the man Buffers the miseries of dyspepsia and the agonies o ( nervousness.
To strengthen the stomach , restore the activity of the or *
tfans of digestion and nutrition and brace up the nerrcs ,
use Dr. P/ercc'a Golden Medical Discovery. It Is an an *
falling remedy , and has the confidence of physicians a
veil as the pralso of thousands healed by its use.
_ In the strictest sense "Golden Medical Discovery" is a temperance medi
cine. It contains neither intoxicants nor narcotics , and is as free from alcohol
