Time to Take Precautions..

DR. TALKS OK FOOD
Pres. of Board of Health.
"What shall I eat?" is the daily in
quiry the" physician is met with. I
do not hesitate to say that in my
judgment a large percentage of dis
.ease is causpd by poorly selected and
improperly prepared food. My per
sonal experience with the fully-cooked
food, known as Grape-Nuts, enables
me to speak freely of its merits.
"From overworn I suffered several
years with malnutrition, palpitation
of the heart and loss of sleep. Last
summer I was led to experiment per
sonally with the new food, which 1
used in conjunction with good rich
cow's milk. In a sh?rt time after 1
commenced its use the disagreeable
symptoms disappeared, my heart's ac
tion became steady and normal, the
functions of the stomach were prop
erly carried out, and I again slept as
soundly and as well as in my youth.
, "I look upon Grapes-Nuts as a per
fect food, and no one can gainsay but
that lt has a most prominent place in
a rational, scientific system of feed
ing. Any one who uses this food will
soon be convinced of the soundness
of the principle upon which lt is man
ufactured and may thereby know the
tacts as to its true worth." Read

Shade For Hens.
Have a shaded yard or good sized
pea in which to keep the hens and
little chicks, and keep the weeds and
grass down short in this yard. A good
precaution for both chiggers and dis
ease is a liberal sowing of lime over
all the yard, and in the coops.-Farm

Day Mash Food.
Experiments which have been con
ducted at the New York Cornell Sta
tion indicate that "for young fowls of
the laying varieties, kept for commer
cial egg production, the feeding of a
dry mash in a feed hopper which is
accessible at all times during the day
is to be recommended."
Pure Air and Water.
Pure air and pure water are as es
sential to the health of brood mares
and the best condition of the foals that
:hey are carrying as is pure food. Do
not forget, however, that taking a
large quantity ot ict-cold water at
one time into the stomach of a preg

Why not raise mules? They are
subject to fewer diseases than horses,

labor; they are sure-footed, steady, not
rattle-headed, active when well bred
and well nourished and are safer than

Setting Out Fruit Trees.
The farm home that does not have
a good orchard, vineyard and plenty
of small fruits is missing something
worth while. Why are there so many
farms without fruits? Surely not be
cause the family dees not care f'
fruit. The real reason ls because
the rush of farm work during the
spring there is not time to get the
ground ready and set out the trees or
plants. Then many make a half-heart
ed attempt at it, and having poor suc
cess give up the orchard to weeds and
live stock. Go at the work right. Pre
pare the ground thoroughly, and set
out the best trees and plants you can
get. Apples, plums, pears, grapes,
blackberries, raspberries and straw
berries may all be grown easily and
within a few years. Order your stock
early and when it comes don't leave it

Forcing Hogs for Killing.
Many farmers are now forcing their
pigs to make the greatest possible!
gain in weight before "killing lime."
The office of experiment stations of the
Department of Agriculture summarizes
some Wisconsin station pig feeding ex
periments covering a period of ten
years, with the following conclusions:
WV:re there is plenty of tine for ma -
turing the pigs, and it is not necessary
to secure the maximum daily gain, it
is doubtful if it pays to grind corn
for pigs. The test shows that where
quick maturity is an important item,
better results are secured from corn
meal. Pigs fed corn meal eat more
grain and make somewhat larger daily
gains. Corn meal can doubtless be
fed to good advantage in finishing off
a bunch of hogs which were first fed
shelled corn. Changing over to cora
meal .near the close of the feeding
period also furnishes a change in the
character of the ration which will be
satisfactory to the animals. When
fitting hogs to show, sale, or in high
pressure fee .ing for market, the feed
er will consider it advisable to grind
the corn, even though it is expensive
to do so.

Rape seems to grow much better in
rather moist ground. The plant, which
slightly resembles cabbage, thrives
best in rich soil. The ground should
be in fine condition. Give the ground
several harrowings. The best time lo

of April. Sow broadcast. Rape can
endure considerable cold weather, but
not very much dry weather during the
summer, if there is a scarcity of rain

New Life on the Farm.
Prof. Bailey of .Cornell University,
New York, in a recent talk to the
farmers or that state said that schools
should be well in touch with affairs of
farm life, and further:
"I believe in the rural schools. But
like other roclal institutions in the
country they are in a state of arrested
development, as compared with the
like situations in the city. With the

transportation, the country is not go

but the city is going to move out into
the country, forming small suburban
"There is going to be more difficulty
in getting a living from farm lands
hereafter. The problems the farm will
have to face are twenty times more
numerous and more complex than fif
ty yearB ago. So we are brought to
the absolute necessity of developing
a new point of view towards agrlcvi
tural life and industry. If you be
lieve tbere are possibilities of making
a good living on the land, and life
on the land is highly honorable, stick
to lt. If the city life gets the best
young men and women who are
brought up in the country, it will be
the city's glory and the country's fault
for not developing this point of view,
the appreciation of the science of agri
culture, and for not keeping in touch
with social instructions of our age In
the rural districts as well as in the
city. And this reorganization of the
rural school is going to be a great
part in this development of the rural
life and community.

settled until you train up farm arti

the shop artisan has in his work."
Notes for The Farmer.
The-barrel churn is not excelled for
making good butter.
The general market prefers butter
with color like what is usual in June.
Excessive washing may remove some
of the volatile oils from butter and
lessen its delicate flavor.
Consumers of butter are very often
the best to sell a high gTade to, but
the seller should consider the cost of
Cows that have to drink unclean
water do not give choice milk; and af

If starting with a cream separator,
study carefully the directions of the

If the buttermilk is strained lurough

Under cleanly farm conditions, the
lactic acid bacteria predominates over
all other kinds; and the lactic acid

cleanliness is so great that the subject
will bear being recalled to mind now

Wolf Hunter's Record.
Ninety-three timber wolves killed in
less than a month's time is the record
made by James Macintyre of Quatsino,
who has presented a bill to the govern
ment agent here for $1395, the amount
of bounty at the ra>te of $15 a head.
An examination of Mr. Maclntyre'a
account showed that some of the
wolves were killed before February 1,
the date on which the increased boun
ty came into effect, and on these he
will be allowed only ?5 per head, but
he has evidence enough of February's
work to make his claim when revised

nounces that it will give preference
in employment to American citizens.
The Washington Star approves this
as a true policy and one that should
be generally adopted. It says: Wheth
er native or foreign born, the Ameri
can citizen-the man whose lot Is
cast with us and who is here to stay j
-should have the call in all Am erl? j
can opportunity. He is the one upon
whom the country must rely in time
of war, and he is entitled therefore
to the right-of-way in tine of peace.
The best "things- are his by every
right. He builds and he stays. He
establishes a local habitation and a
name, and as he is for the country,
the country should bc f?r him. The
man who is here today and ?one to
morrow has no claim to anything but
to the odd jobs which great pressure
for labor brings. The steady thing
for the citizen, every time.
