After careful examination of some
of the milk recently offered for sale in
Washington , D. C. , Health Officer
Woodward announces that it contains
35,000,000 germs to the teaspoonful.
As he gives 2,000,000 as the maximum
number tolerated in a like quantity
by any other large city in the country ,
he Insists that the health department
is justified in forbidding the sale of
such polluted milk.
The hog grower of the future in
pork production as a business propo
sition and not using hogs merely as
scavengers in the feed lot , must take
cognizance of the fact that the young
pigs up to the age of six months need
a growing and not a fattening ration ,
and that their feeding must be tem
pered with judgment.
The first thing is to have every
thing connected with the milk and
milking as clean as is possible to
make them. The other essential is
to cool the milk as soon as possible
after it is drawn from the cows and
held to a low temperature till it is
to be used.
Some growers protect their fruit by
tying paper bags over the clusters
when the grapes are as large as peas.
The mouth of the bag is secured
about the stem of the cluster with
soft wire. Insects and fungus cannot
affect the fruit when thus protected.
Fowls are very fond of wheat , but
they should not be allowed too much
of it. An excess of this raw grain
will very frequently induce a loose
ness of the bowels. A ration of
about one-fourth wheat will be suf
ficient of this grain.
Better leave the roads in a poor
condition than dig them up late in
the fall and let a freeze catch them
before they settle , which would mean

It is believed that the "black-head"
disease which has practically killed
all the turkeys in New England , has
spread to quafl and other game-birds
and the English sparrow is full of the
germs and widely disseminates the
Where whole milk is fed the calf to
the time it is six or eight weeks old ,
and then the calf sold for veal , not
as much money will be received for
the calf as could have been secured
for the 'whole ' milk which it took.
See that the farm machinery Is
properly cared for before winter sets
In. All wearing parts of iron and
steel should be oiled to prevent
rusting. Paint and oil is also excel
lent for all wood work.
The whole point is that the country
needs many young cows to fill the
places of old , discarded cows , and
every dairyman starting in business
will look to the man who is growing
Pork production as a specialty is
just becoming recognized. For many
years the hog has , to a large extent ,
been a by-product of the feed lot
wherein beef production was the

Every farmer cannot have a prize-
winning herd , but he can have a few
prize-winning animals. The number
of good animals can be gradually in
creased until the entire herd is good.
Often a mare dies when her foal is
young and the foal must be raised by
hand. In this case , feeding often and
in small amounts is what counts for
success in making the young horse.
Canada's production of 102,000,000
bushels of wheat , only 18,000,000
bushels behind the excellent crop of
1909 , is considered a very good show-

With calves , cells , pigs or any ani
mals raised by hand other feeds than
milk will be eaten in small amounts
when , the animals are from twenty to
thirty days old. The calves and colts
should be given hay as soon as they
show an inclination to eat solid food ,
and the pigs may be given cured
clover hay , shelled corn or other suit
able pig foods. Letting them nibble
during the day at hay or other solid
food will keep them from becoming
so hungry between regular feeds and
will allow the times for feeding to be
reduced to twice daily.
Bee keeping is Tjemg carried on with
both profit and pleasure by many
thousands of people in all parts of
the United States , and while as a
rule it is not the sole occupation of
those who pursue it , there are many
places where an experienced bee
keeper can make a good living by de
voting his entire time and attention
to this line of work.
Take up gladioluses , tuberoses , Ja
cobean lilies , tiger lilies and all other

then pack boxes between lays of saw

Cabbages can be kept well pre
served by digging a trench and bury
ing them under six or eight inches
of soil. Do not cover to this depth at
once , but gradually , to prevent over
heating. You will get far more satis
faction from this method than by try
ing to keep them in the cellar.
' While it is not uncommon to put in
a few of the largest ewe lambs it is
never wise to do so for the reason
that ewes thus treated are prevented
from the best development of which
they are capable , and the lambs of
immature mothers are seldom equal
to the produce of older stock.
The colt should have a little grain
feed , such as bran and oats and a lit
tle cracked corn , about the middle of
each forenoon and afternoon while
its mother is at work , as well as
always at regular feeding time in a
little trough all its own.
With a good , pure-bred beef sire , a
herd of native cows and plenty of
pasture land , a farmer may in two
or three years' time develop a good
grade beef herd , which will largely in
crease his profits and maintain the
fertility of the soil.
A flock of sheep can be classed as
the tender part of the stock of the
farm , but they are , to a great extent ,
self feeders and ask but little of the
flock owner but they want that little

Don't allow too many pigs to sleep
together in the same bed , for they
will pile up , sweat and contract colds ,
causing them to cough all winter.
They may be so stunted that they
never will make good hogs.
There are not many horses which
can stand sudden changes in either
quantity or kind of feed. Violation of
this rule brings sudden disaster , in
fact , underfeeding is much to be pre
ferred to overfeeding.
As a rule it will not pay to hold the
pig crop for prices to rise unless they
are-making good gains all of the time
thye are being held. Where few
feeders win out in playing the market
game , many lose out.
The trouble with a great many poul

Farmers usually do not pay suffi
cient attention to the feet of their
horses. Think of the work they do
and how much they must suffer if
they are not shod carefully.

SAVED OLD LADY'S HAIR
"My mother used to have a very bad
lumor on her head which the doctors
called an eczema , and for it I had two
different doctors. Her head was very
sore and her hair r.early all fell out
in spite of what they both did. One
day her niece came in and they were
speaking of how her hair was falling
out and the doctors did it no good.
She says , 'Aunt , why * don't you try
Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Oint
ment ? ' Mother did and they helped
her. In six months' time the itching ,
burning and scalding of her head was
over and her hair began growing. To
day she feels much in debt to Cuti
cura Soap and Ointment for the fine
head of hair she has for an old lady
"My own case was an eczema in my
feet. As soon as the cold weather
came my feet would itch and burn and
then they would crack open and bleed.
Then I thought I would flee to my
mother's friends , Cuticura Soap and
Cuticura Ointment. I did for four or
five winters , and now my feet are as
smooth as any one's. Ellsworth Dun
