Baffling the Mosquito,
l'.st summer we were pestered with
the awful nuisance, mosquitoes, night
jiltpr niirht, and on one occasion
killed between thirty and forty in our
bedroom, at midnight. The following
day 1 took a woolen cloth, put a little
kerosene oil on it, and rubbed both
sides of the wire mesh of the screens
with it. That night one lonely mos
quito disturbed our rest. Two or three
times each week I rubbed the screens
in like manner, and we enjoyed peace
the rest of the summer. The odor
from the oil remains only a few min
utes, :md the oil itself preserves the
screens and keeps away flies. Good

PROPER TREATMENT OF COLTS
DURING THE SUMMER'S HEAT
Many Good Animals Have Been Aged and Made Doll "by
Foolish Habit of Letting Tneth Ran Unbroken Into
Spring When They Are Three or Four Years
Old and Then Patting Them to Work.
(By J. JL BELL. Virginia.)
Try to be patient with your colt
Mr. Farmer. Remember he is green
yes, as green as the grass he eats so
peacefully when you turn him out to
graze and the harness no longer chafes
his soft young body.
All farmers know that a four-year-old
colt will stand more than a three-year-old.
Bone and muscle are better
matured and generally better size,
therefore, he is better able to stand
a day's work. But. when it comes to
that, no green, unbroken colt should
be expected to do a full day's work
in the team of well seasoned farm
or road horses.
So many good colts have been 'aged
and made dull by this foolish habit
of letting them run absolutely un
broken into the spring when they are
three or four-year-olds and then catch-
ing them and putting them at hard,
steady work just as the busy season
comes on, when the crops need work,
when the flies are rampant and when
neither the master's nor the colt's
tempers are at their best
Imagine a farmer starting out to
mow bay with a green or half broken
colt bitched alongside of a mule or
a steady farm horse to a mowing ma
chine, double row cultivator, corn
planter, plow or harrow.
All implements need a steady, well
broken team and at the same time a
good driver, who. In order to do his
best work has little time for else than
quietly handling his team and imple
ment at one and the same time.
This man will not get much satis
faction out of a day's work if he has
to worry with a green, restive colt,
who, chafing at the unexpected misery
of heavy work in hot weather, starts
up a little too soon or not soon enough,
protects at having to walk in a
straight line at a slow gait. etc.
It is not impossible that he will balk.

Silage is going to be more used than
In the past, and cattle feeders are com
ing to the conclusion at last that it
should not be ignored, says the Na
tional Stockman. Cheaper grains have
been made by using silage as rough
age, while gains have been made more
rapid, especially where the cattle
were fed only 90 days. The plan
adopted in handling silage is to let the
ear of the corn reach as advanced a
stage of maturity as possible without
firing the fodder. Many stock feeders
in the upper edge of the corn belt,
where dent corn often fails to come to
maturity because of early frosts, are
using this silage method with the best
of success, and for wintering cattle
its use is equal to pasturing them.
Meanwhile the demand for breeding
cattle is showing a steady increase.

The writer visited that section twe
