In tlte latter purt of I VI. a con

er and three Seward cmtnt y farm
in wa negotiated. The owner

to accpt the cattle wright at load

tent in transit. The owner further
Breed to pay two-thirds of the ship

for market, and two-thirdr- of the
lost of any teer by death from the
ittne of shipment until marketed. No

619 Cattle Fed.
The Seward county farmer con
tracted to feed the cattle at their own
expense for not more than 120 day,
to pay the remaining one-third freight
and wiling expense, and to receive
rte-third of the net receipt at the
time of market. Some 619 cattle were
fed. divided among the three farmers.
The profit to each feeder was ap
proximately $.'8. plus the hog gain,
less his share, of the freight and sell
ing expense.
The first feeder lost one steer dur
ing feeding and rvjacrc an average gain
4 270 pounds, exclusive of thrink
age. The cattle sold at an average
of $7.38 prr hundred pounds, with a
few spayed heifers in the lot. An
average of 45 bushels of corn per
animal was consumed during the feed
period, about 75 tons of Mlagc and
II tons of alfalfa hay. valued re
epcctively by the feeder at 28 1--rents,
$5 per ton and $11.50 per ton.
The excess of gains above 200 pounds
was divided equally between owner
and feeder.
The second feeder put on an aver
age of 277 pounds and sold at an
average of $7.12 per hundred pounds.
A ration of snapped corn and straw,
crushed snapped corn and atfalta hay
and straight shelled corn, supple
mented with alfalfa hay, was the
feed outline on this lot.
Save Freight Bills.
The third lot gained an average of
257 pounds, divided into 50 yearlings
and 118 heavy cattle. The yearlings
averaged 851 pounds at Omaha and
the heavy cattle averaged 1,1"
pounds. The heavy cattle brought
an average of $7.05 per hundred
pounds, while the yearlings brought
Jg.7.50 straight;. The older cattle were
put on an unhusked corn ration,1 fol
lowed by a dry yard and snapped
corn and alfalfa hay. This soon was
changed to ground ear corn, includ
ing cob. and alfalfa hay. The year
ling ration consisted of a dry yard,
bran, oats.' ear corn and alfalfa nay
ration, followed by ground car corn
and cob meal, augmented with al
falfa. . , t
Another feature pointed out was
the saving in shipment on a feed
and transit billing, eliminating con
siderable overhead expense, as well
as two commissions and two extra
freights. One feeder explains, how
ever, that all cattle cannot be han
dled in this manner. Still another
significant factor pointed out was
that the cattle gainsf each lot indi
cated that each feeder handled them
in a way that the feed given the cat
tle produced similar results.-
Each feeder ran bogs behind the
cattle, the contract providing that
the feeder was to have the hog feed
in addition to the one-third of the
net returns of. the cattle when sold
at market, which gain was another
item of some profit.

Manager' Conference.
A conference of manager oi to
opeiative associations in eastern Nc-L-ratka
and western Iowa will be
held in Omaha April 12 under the
auspices of the Farmers union audit
department and the Farmers' union
state exchange. This will include
managers of elevators and stores,
produce station, lumber yards and
implement businesses. The purpoe

views and experiences on subjects
concerned with the operation ot co
operative enterprises. One subject
that is expected to receive more at
tention than others i co-operative
buying in carload lots by associa
tions located in contittious territory,
with distribution in less than car
load lots from convenient points.
Other subject on the program arc
accounting, merchandising' and capi

Urge Credit Bill.
A. C. Davis, Gravette, Ark., secretary-treasurer
of the National Farm
ers union, is urging members to pe
tition their congressmen and sena
tors to support the Farmers union
rural credit bill now pending in con
gress. The bill provides for the es
tablishment of a corporation, to suc
ceed the War Finance corporation,
for the special purpose of rediscount
ing agricultural paper and taking
care of the credit needs of farmers.
Under the terms of the measure, the
government would supply all of the
original .capital of the corporation,
but this would gradually be repaid
from the profits of the institution,
and when fully repaid the corpora
tion would become a co-operative in
stitution for the permanent use of
Failures Are Few.
Failures among farmers' co-operative
enterprises have not been so
numerous as many persons believe,
according to figures compiled by the
Farmers union " audit department.
The department has record of only
four co-operative stores and one co
operative elevator going out of busi
ness in Nebraska since the business
depression began in September,
1920. This number of failures out of
987 co-operative enterprises in the
tate make a very low pcrcenisg.
There may have bent a tew failure
of which we have run beard." aid
one of the Farmers union auditors
who made this investigation, "but it
is certain that they are very few, foe

of the to-operalhe association in

1'ilger A Farmers union meeting
here was addressed bv W. F. Dale oi
1'niven.tiy I'lace. a member of the
organising force of the state rarmer
union. He presented the work of the
Farmers' union under three heads
the ocial, the educational and the
economic. On the social side, the
Farmers' union brings the farmers
and their families together for pleas
ure, entertainment and fellowship. On
the educational side, it arouses inter
est in the whole range of subject in
which farmers are interested as pro
ducers and citizens. And on the
economic side it seeks, through to
opcration, to establish justice in buy
ing and selling. Mr. Dale was greet
ed by a good audience.
Speak on Co-Operation.
Craig C. H. Withcy. manager of
the Omaha house of the Farmers'
um'on livestock commission, and
Frof. George Boomer of the agricul
tural extension department of the
state university addressed a Farmers'
union meeting arranged bv the lead
ers in this community. Several locals
in the surrounding territory were rep
resented, and about 150 persons were
present. Mr. Wither sookc of the
work the Farmers' union is doing
in the co-operative marketing of live
stock, and emphasized the import
ance of loyal patronage as a means
to increase the saving made in coin
mission charges, and to reach a point
where the flow of livestock to mar
ket might be regulated and gluts
prevented. Frof. Boomer spoke
along the line of general co-operation
among farmers.

A well cooked egg dish is always
a welcome substitute for meat for
the light meal of the day. Fiscal
loped eggs, curried, scrambled,
shirred and stuffed eggs, egg salad
and omelet are some of the ways of
using eggs which have a food value
comparing favorably with meat,
milk, cheese and other animal foods.
The following is a tested recipe
for foamy omelet: Four eggs, four
tablcspoonfuls milk or water, one
teaspoon salt, pepper and two tea
spoons butter. Separate the yolks
and whites of the eggs. Beat the
yolks of the eggs until creamy; add
seasonings and milk or water. Then
beat the whites until stiff and cut
and fold them into the yolk mixture.
I'lace the butter in a pan. heat, and
turn the omelet into it. Cook slow
ly (this is an important rule in good
omelet making), occasionally turn
ing the pan so that the omelet may
brown evenly. When the omelet is
set and delicately browned under
reath, place it in a hot oven for a
few- minutes to dry the top. Fold
ami serve immediately.
To fold an omelet properly, first
run a spatula under the omelet to
loosen it, then make a slight incision
with a knife through the middle
of the omelet at right angles to the
handle of the pan. Grasp the han
dle of the pan in the right hand,
placing the back of the hand under
neath with the thumb pointing away
from you. Turn the omelet upon
a platter.

Geneva Cost of production records kept
by Nebraska corn and wheat producers
was one of the factor that prompted the
reduction of freight rates, on these crops
last fall, Lee W. Thompson, county ex
tension, agents, declares. However, Ne
braska did not furnish as many records
as it should have done, he adds.
"When a larger number of these cost
sheets are put together they tell a story,"
states Mr. Thompson. 'One member of the
Interstate Commerce commission, after
looking; over a number of these reports, was
amazed that such conditions existed in the
mtddlewest. Nebraska as a state should
keep more of these records, not only for
this purpose, but as an inventory of their
own costs. Fillmore county should do
its share. Records should be kept on the
important crops of the county in every
road, district, if possible.
To enlist In the campaign for better
sires, better stock, a farmer is required
only to sign an enrollment blank, use
nothing; but purebred sires of good types
and quality to head all the farm livestock,
but does not necessarily have to own such
sires, Mr. Thompson asserts. "By im
proving the livestock over the entire
county, each farmer can improve his own
stock, so why raise scrubs when it costs
no more, and usually less, to raise good
stock?" asks Mr. Thompson.
Six townships were represented at the
millinery schools, held last week. Eleven
adult and four children's hats were made,
the total cost being $25.31. the estimated
market value, $97, and a vaving of $71.69.

As a result of my inquiry I l v
came convinced that while the Ay.

yet they approached more nearly the
dual type than any other breed. I

any handicap. Ayrshire welsh from
1.000 to 1,500 pounds. ThcV can be
bought for $50 for a calf a few weeks
old to $250 for a mature cow, ac
cording to age and oualitv.
Good Milk Production.
Ayrshires as a breed give a little
less milk than the Holstein and a
little more than the Jerseys or the
Guernseys. The butter fat content
of 1 heir milk is considerably higher
than the Holstcins and somewhat
less than the Jerseys of the Guern
seys. The average butter fat con
tent of the milk from 560 cows test
ed officially during the year 1921.
was 4.1 per cent. My two Ayrshire
cows are 15 years old. One fresh
ened in September, the other in Oc
tober. One is giving a trifle less
than three gallons of milk, the other
a little over four gallons of milk
daily. Considering their age this is
a creditable performance.
If I am correctly informed male
calves of this breed both grade and
pure bred when sold for beef are
acceptable by the packers with little
if any discrimination. This with
their creditable milk production is
their chief asset from the fanners'
viewpoint. If there is such a thing
as a dual purpose cow it comes
nearer being true of the Ayrshire
than any other. They are the ideal
breed for the farmer who is mak
ing the cow contribute to the income
of the farm where his chief activity
is growing grain and hogs.
Advisable for Clubs.
I advise boys and girls joining
calf clubs to buy an Ayrshire calf.
If you are interested in Ayrshire
calves, heifers or cows, write me for
particulars. While I have no fe
males of my own for sale, yet I anr
in communication with Ayrshire
breeders from all over the country
and can probably buy them
for you to better advantage than
you can get them yourselves. My
services will be free of charge. I
will be glad to assist any one wish
ing to go in the business in a small
way or otherwise. My compensation
will consist in the satisfaction of be
ing of service in introducing to the
farmers of the state what I consider
