once be made to secure its ratifica

Preceding the final vote, votes were

"FLY TIME" AMONG THE COWS
Some Individual Animals Seem to
Suffer More Than Others Vari
ous Remedies Suggested.
(By WALTER B. L.EUTZ.)
Midsummer Is known as "fly time"
In the dairyman's calendar. The
marked falling off in the milk flow of
the dairy cows at this season of the
year is looked upon as unavoidable,
and is attributed by many to the wor
ry of the stock by flies. The failure
to provide an abundance of succu
lent forage to supplement the parched,
pastures seems a trifling contribu;
tory cause of the lessening milk se
cretion, compared with the activity,
of the pesky, ubiquitous fly. especially
at milking time.
The flies that are most numerous
about cattle are known by their com:

fly very much in appearance, but dif
fers in having the mouth parts fitted
for piercing the skin and sucking the
blood of animals. The eggs of the
stable fly are usually laid in horse
manure, the female laying from 125
to 150 in a season. The period of de
velopment from egg to adult fly is
about 15 days.
The horn fly Is a new pest and was
first noticed In this country about
1886. The first appearance of this
fly was the cause of considerable
alarm among the cattle men. and the
experiment stations of the various
states were appealed to for informa

their common name. They confine
their attention to cattle. They bur

fEED SALT TO LIVE STOCK
Receptacle Shown in the Illustration
Is Designed for Use Either
in Field or Corral.
The salt receptacle shown In the
illustration is designed for use in a
field or corral. It affords free access
to the stock for obtaining the re
quisite amount of salt, and at the
same time protects the salt from the
elements and prevents waste. The
opening Is protected by a hood which
the animal shoves open by putting his
nose under It and lifting upward.
When the nose is withdrawn from the
opening thus made, the hood drops
down again by its own weight. A
sufficient opening is always left to ex
pose the salt and attract the stock.
Water Hauled to Cows.
The usual method of watering in
Denmark is to haul the water in a
tank on a low-wheeled, one-horse
wagon twice a day to the tethered
cows. Doors are placed In the top of
this tank at either end. and by pro
ceeding directly across the field along
the Hue of tethered cows, stopping
the horse midway between the tether
stakes, two cows can drink at the
same time, making the task of water
ing easy. Some take the cows to the
stable to be milked three times a day.

Greatest Aid to Animala
During Calving Time.
Many valuable cows have been lost
by the womb or calf-bed following
the calf. In large herds a harness,
as shown, will almost always keep in
the bed when there Is any danger.
This must be kept on for 24 hours
after calving, after which time there
Is not much danger. The part under
the tail should be extra wide and so
arranged that a clean, sanitary cloth
can be put next to the cow's skin. A

says a writer in the Country Gentle

at calving, and as soon as she has
calved put on the harness, which
must be tightly strapped on. and then
in an hour or so loosen it up to let
away the after-birth or renew the
sanitary cloth. It almost always hap

she will do it again. In desperate

To keep table butter firm without
putting it in the refrigerator set a
"trivet" or any other open flat thing
with legs in a large saucer. Put the
plate of butterballs, or a "pat" or
mold of butter, upon the trivet; fill
the saucer up with cold water and in
vert a common clay flowerpot over
the butter in such a manner that the
edge of the pot shall be within that
of the saucer and in the water. Cork
the hole in the bottom of the flower
pot (now the upper part) and drench
copiously with cold water.
Set in a cold place and in a few
hours you have firm, cold butter. This
Is a great convenience in warm
weather to these who have a scanty
supply of ice or small refrigerators.
Cost of Producing Milk.
The Massachusetts Experiment sta
tion has found that the total cost of
producing milk satisfactory in sani
tary quality and containing from 4 to
5 per cent of butter fat will usually
amount to from 4 to 5 cents per quart
The cost of keeping a cow for one year
is estimated at 51:57.07. Milk produced
under more than average sanitary con

cost considerably more.

voice that made the gas jets quiver:
"Advertise for it, you ignoramus!"
The audience cheered and yelled
and stamped, and the wretched man
who had asked the question crawled
out of the hall a total wreck.
DISFIGURED WITH CRUSTS
"Some time ago I was taken with
eczema from the top of my head to
my waist. It began with scales on my
body. I suffered untold itching and
burning, and could not sleep. I was
greatly disfigured with scales and
crusts. My ears looked as if they had
been most cut off with a razor, and
my neck was perfectly raw. I suffered
untold agony and pain. I tried two
doctors who said I had eczema in its
fullest stage, and that it could not
be cured. I then tried other rem
edies to no avail. At last, I tried a set
of the genuine Cuticura Remedies,
which cured me of eczema when all
else had failed, therefore I cannot
praise them too highly.
"I suffered with eczema about ten
months, but am now entirely cured,
and I believe Cuticura Remedies are
the best skin cure there Is." (Signed)
Miss Mattie J. Shaffer. R. F. D. 1, Box
8, Dancy, Miss.. Oct. 27, 1910.
"I had suffered from eczema about
four years when boils began to break
out on different parts of my body. It
started with a fine red rash. My
back was affected first, when it also
spread over my face. The itching was
almost unbearable at times. I tried
different soaps and salves, but nothing
seemed to help me until I began o
use the Cuticura Soap and Ointment.
One box of them cured me entirely. I
recommended them to my sister for
her baby who was troubled with tooth
eczema, and they completely cured her,
baby." (Signed) Mrs. F. L. Marber
ger. Drehersville. Pa.. Sept. 6. 1910.
Although Cuticura Soap and Oint
ment are sold everywhere, a sample
of each, with 32-page book, will be
mailed free on application to "Cuti
cura," Dept. 4 L, Boston.

have to be just as careful about
using it as the rest of us! Puck.
