See the land before you buy It.
Apples should be carefully assorted.
Cool the cream as soon as possible
after separating.
Prepared dips kill lice. A lousy
cow is a hard keeper.
Oats should be made a part of the
ration of the growing colt.
It is often a good plan to turn wean
ling lambs into the cornfield.
Don't give Ihe pigs a setback by a
day or two of carelessness.
The comfortable cow is usually one
that produces the best profits.
Change pastures often to give the
grass a chance to start up fresh.
Corn silage is an excellent calf feed
when fed In moderate amounts.
Allow no weeds to go to seed. This
will make cultivation easier next
Spring pigs can get along very well
without shelter except from rain un
til fall.
Tainted, musty or mouldy feeds
should never be served In the dairy
herd rations.
A silo should not be less than 30
feet deep or more than 12 or 14 feet
In diameter.
There is always much difficulty In
Reaping ca.ns clean and sweet in very
warm weather.
Tho hog on pasture requires 20 per

pounds in weight.
The most profitable pork Is pro
duced by using as largely as possible
other feeds than corn.
tlzr-o will stand a vast amount of
;'.abIo manure and give a surprising
growth of green feed.
The only hog pasture crop that
r.:ay be sown now to furnish fall feed
is cowpeas or sorghum.
When grapes are bagged at an early
stage there is hardly any work in the
fruit, line that pays better.
Cut out sprouts about shade trees,
,iiuais and apples. They oniy take
strength from the main plant
If the pig is stinted in its food at
my stage of its life, it can never be
come a perfect pork producer.
Gather pumpkins and squash before
i hard frost and store away in a dry
placo (not in a "damp cellar).
The best corn-cutting outfit for the
average farmer is a portable engine
with silage cutter and blower attach
ment. Hogs will not thrive on sour and
decomposed food any more than men
will. See that they get fresh, clean
water to drink.
A shed that is warm and poorly
ventilated will often cause the sheep's
wool to loosen, besides injuring the
animal's vitality.
Quality in form, disposition and gen
eral conformation must be coupled
with the size and style to get the best
in each class of horses.
Cabbage will sometimes cure slob
ber in horses caused by eating white
clover, but it is better to keep the
clover away from the horses.
Re sure that you furnish proper
quarters for the farrowing sow. You
can t afford to lose a single one of the
little "squealers" this season.
In real warm weather it will pay
and pay well to round up the young
pigs every ten days or two weeks and
give them a thorough wetting.
The farmers whose corn fields are
most likely to suffer this season are
those who quit plowing just because
there were no more weeds to kill.
Milk should never be exposed to
foul air in the cow stable or in dirty
tanks before h. is delivered to the
Those who get best results in the
garden must practice seed selection to
some extent by saving the most per
fect specimens.
The primary principle in the mak
ing of silage is the exclusion of air in
order to prevent decay; therefore, not
only the walls, but the doors, must be
perfectly airtight
Every farmer knows the value of
corn as a supplement to a pasture
crop late in summer, for which pur
pose It may be used for cattle as
soon as it is tasseled out ar.d for
hogs as soon as the ears have reached
the roasting stage.
It does not cost much to get a pure
bred sire when the benefits io be de
rived from his use are considered, and
the ownership of a good animal has
an educational value which is practic
ally sure to lead to a desire to own a
good herd.

The needs of the good dairy cow
must be studied.
Keep fewer sheep, better sheep and
give them better care. w
Bran is good for both growing
chicks and laying hens.
It certainly pays to keep a big
quiet flock of good fowls.
Seeds of maple trees have been
known to germinate In ice.
Oats are frequently seeded with
Canada field peas for forage.
Clover and skim milk are almost In
dispensable In the ration of the grow
ing pig.
Boards should be used for bleaching
early celery. Soil is apt to cause it
to decay.
Artificial heat In the hog pen Is
not necessary. Freedom from drafts
is better.
Every farmer should have a piece of
rape to turn the sheep on when the
pastures fall.
A hog could be starved to eat al
most anything: but seldom does well
on spoiled food.
A side line of dairying that helps
out is to have plenty of pigs to eat
the skim milk.
Young chickens should not be coop
ed on land that was occupied by chick
ens last year.
An accessible supply of pure, cold
water should always be available for
the dairy herd.
Different kinds of milk animals dif
fer greatly as to the fat and solid con
tents of the milk.
Rape is commonly sown either
broadcast or In rows about 30 inches
apart and cultivated.
Plenty of hot water must be used in
keeping the dairy utensils clean dur
ing the hot weather.
The best authorities give the weight
of one gallon of milk, of average com
position, as 8.G pounds.
The silo is now a necessity, and for
you to compete with the man who has
one you must have one, too.
The levelness with which a horse
walks is one of the best evidences
that his legs work in harmony.
Roughage for calves should first be
fed at two or three weeks of age,
when the calf begins to eat grain.

A silo saves labor, as with it you
can feed more stock in much less time'
than by any other means and do it
much easier.
When a hog reaches 200 pounds in
weight it requires extra good care and
an expert feeder to continue to lay on
flesh at a profit
Some people claim that a hog is a
scavenger by nature, but he certainly
thrives better on clean feed and de
cent surroundings.
Weeds plowed under add some hu-.
mus and fertility to the soil, though
In a very much less degree than
clover or cow peas.
The amount of feed used by cows
depends some hat upon their body
weight, larger cows requiring more
feed for maintenance.
Common millet is one of the best
varieties of millet to sow as an emer
gency hay or pasture crop, since It
yields well under trying conditions of
soil and climate.
Pigs, sows and fattening .hogs
should be kept in separate inclosures.
They will be healthier., and derive
mere benefit from their feeds by
such handling.
Make a creep for the little pigs in
which they can get in and eat and the
old hogs cannot follow. By the way,
do not feed the little fellows sloppy,
sour feed. Give them shelled corn
and watch them crack it
Fall fairs have already begun. Ex
hibit your poultry at as many of them
as possible. You will learn much that
will benefit you in many ways. Ex
change ideas with the poultry breed
ers you meet there. The poultry in
dustry has never yet been completely
mastered by any one man.
Most Satisfactory System Is Described and Illustrated No
Plan That Will Automatically Meet All Conditions
of Wind and Weather The Cause of
Corrosion of Metal Frames.
For stables of ordinary width, the
common and most satisfactory form
of fresh air inlet is a sash at each
stall hinged at the botton, opening
inward, but with galvanized iron
pieces attached to the sides of the
window frame, so that the only air
admitted has to take an, upward
course over the top of the sash,
writes George F. Weston in the Coun
try Gentleman. This prevents direct
drafts. A piece of chain stapled to
the top of the frame, with a beheaded
wire nail projecting' from the top of
the sash, allows the window to be
opened any number of links. The free
edges of the metal side plates are
turned upward so as to make a stop
that prevents the windows from fall
ing open too wide.
There is no system of ventilation
that will automatically meet all con
ditions of wind and weather, which
at times will call for the closing of
all windows to windward, and opening

of those on the sheltered side a mere

come in hot. and, in the case of work
horses, cannot be rubbed quite dry,
it will often save colds to keep every
thing tight until they are dry and
have cooled off. The stable shown in
the illustration is an extra wide one.
and to secure sufficient fresh air in
lets for the central double row of
horses, it may be necessary to make
ducts from the outside to the open
ings in the ceiling over the center of
each passage, about 14 by 20 inches,
and marked I, I, I in the plan. These
can be closed by a board, with pin
sliding on bottom of inside. The eas
iest way to make these ducts is to en
close between two ceiling joists, or
if this cannot be done, make as at
B on hay floor above.
The exhaust flues for a stable of
this design should be three in num
ber, about two feet six inches by
one foot six inches, extending from
bottom of manger clear to the roof.
Each one connects with lateral flues
below manger, so as to tap eight
stalls, and the openings to each stall
should increase in size as they leave

Maw be Poisoned 'With Wheat
Soaked in a. Solution of
Strychnine .Also
to Trap Tn
Ground hogs may be poisoned with
wheat soaked in a solution of strych
nine, but they can easily be trapped
at the entrance of their burrows. A
better way is toeoak a bit of moss or
hay with bisulphate of carbon and
place it well down into the burrow
covering the entrance with a heavy
cloth. The carbon -being neavier than
air it penetrates to the-bottom of the
burrow and kills the animals in
staptly. Great care in handling
bisulphate of carbon must be observed
because Jt is a deadly poison and
must never he Inhaled. The bottle
cntaining It should be kept tightly
ccrked until the moment it is to. be
the main flue, and be screened with
half-Inch wire netting to keep out
rats. AH main exhaust fines in a sta
ble should also have two or the oppo
site sides made with a door just below
the ceiling, and two feet down, so that
this can be opened up against the
ceiling and take out all hot air in
summer. Frequently the hay chutes
can be so arranged as to serve also
for exhaust flues by having a tight-
fitting door at the hay floor, which
is only opened tor leeatng. iney can

the celling of stable, but in such a
climate as Canada, where the upper

pay to cover with a couple of layers
of heavy building paper.
It is well to remember that ven
tilating flues only work when their
air contents are at a higher temper

that the air is expanded and is of

must be a material difference in tem

with moisture and products of ani

Moisture condensed during cold
weather is the cause of the corrosion
of metal frames, and we suggest giv
ing them a couple of coats, of as
pbaltum paint over the interior sur
face, especially on the sash bars.
When of metal the expansion of these

Turkey Breeding.
The turkey crop hatched previous
to June 1 should attain good growth
by the Jast of November, the cock
birds reaching ten or twelve pounds.
The turkey is not fully matured un
til two years of age. and Is in his
prime at three years, and nearly as
good at four years old. It is therefore
a mistake t oseil off all the older
birds and retain the young ones for
breeding purposes.
Toung turkeys are of a delicate na
ture until they are fully feathered and
have thrown out the red on their
heads, which usually occurs at about
three months of age. After that they
are hardy, and may be alTowed unlim
ited range at all times.
Poultry in Ireland.
Ireland is the greatest poultry grow
ing country in the world. It is far
ahead of France, though we have al
ways accepted the latter as the lead
ing country In this industry. Ireland,
with a population of not quite 5,000
000. has 14.000,000 fowls; while
France, with a population seven timet
greafr, has only 10.000,000.
Animal, Like Other Machines, Must
e Given Sufficient Time for
Making Needed Repairs.
Too many farmers milk their cowe
from "calf to calf." In some states
the law forbids the selling of milk
of cows within two weeks of calving
or five days after. This rest is none
too long and in fact young heifers
would do better if they were given
longer rest before calving.
We once heard a farmer at county
institute defend his practice of milk
ing bis cow up to the last moment on
the ground that he worked every day
and wanted his cows to do the same.
A woman asked him If he did not
rest on Sundays and he rather shame
facedly replied that be worked every
day in the week, particularly daring
the summer months. Not much use
arguing with a man like that, but ex
perience shows that it is much better
for the health and usefulness of the
cow, especially heifers, to give ber
at least a month's rest during the
A cow Is a milk machine, it Is true,
and we want to get all we can out
of her. but like machines made of
steel and wood she must be given
time for repairs or she will wear out
all to quickly.
Pail Arranged in This Manner Will
Often Be Fcund of Great Con
venience Around Dairy.
It often happens that one finds It
convenient to have a pail on which
the handle will remain upright at all
limes, says the Farm-and Home. An
ordinary pail can be fixed to produce
the desired result A piece of tin, a.

side of the pail at the place where,

and will hold it firmly in place. This
type is for metal pails.
At b is shown a piece of tin cut
for use on wooden pails. Instead of
being bent over the edge of the pail
the piece is Screwed to the wood.
Cow Should Be Placed in Comfort
able Stall, Well Littered, in
Which There Is No Manger.
For ten days preceding the time
fcr calving, the cow should be- kept
in a comfortable, well-littered box
stall or pen, in which there is no
manger. The feed should be given in
a box or basket, which should be re
moved after the feed is takea. The
coarse feed may be put in the corner,
and no more should be given than
she will eat. This rule should, how
ever, be observed, not only before
calving, but at all times. Throwing
large quantities of roughage before a
cow leads her Into the bad habit of
eating only the most appetizing parts,
and so wasting much feed. It Is a
good practice to take a lantern and go
the rounds of the. barn, before retir
ing for the night, to see that every
thing is as it should be.
Milk Fever.
Milk fever can be prevented very
casiiy by milking the cow regularly
before she drops her calf. If she is
usually a heavy milker, she should
be as regularly milked for a few
weeks bofnre calving as she is after.
Begin the milking at least two weeks
before the time for the arrival of the
j calf. During the first week once each
day is sufficient, but trie last week she
should be milked .both night and
I morning.
Air-Tight Milk Can.
A new type of milk can has been
invented which is air-tight, and is
easily cleaned. Filled at the dair-j'
and sealed with the owner's label,
the can is so constructed that it de
livers automatically and accurately
any quantity that is desired, and
runs out clean to tne last drop.
Liberal Feeding Pays
A poor cow may be made to pay bei
way at least by liberal feeding. It is
equally true that a good cow may be
made to lose by stingy treatment
Scalding water Is an essential In the
When butter prices are low there is
absolutely no excuse for keeping poor
An accessible supply of pure, cold
water should always be available for
the herd.
Tainted, musty or mouldy feeds
should never be served in the dairy
herd rations.
One .of the best indications of a
good milk cow is the large and tortu
ous milk veins.
Care should be taken that the cow
?oes not brve to wede through filth
n the barnyad.
Pouring or dipping the mi sev
eral times from one can to another
rapidly cools it.
To do good work the cream sep
arator must be level and on a good
