HINTS FOR FARMERS
Cottonseed Meal For Hogs.
A great many efforts have been
made, especially by our southern ex
periment stations, to utilize cottonseed
meal as a pig ration. It is very high
In portein, and if it were not for the
fact that it seems to produce some dis
eased condition of the hog it would be
a valuable feed for balancing the car
bonaceous corn, ration. The results of
nearly all the experiments seem to in
dicate the presence of some poisonous
agent in cottonseed, which is fatal to
the hog. No station has yet deter
mined exactly what this agent ls, and
no station has solved the problem of
safely feeding it in any quantity, at
least to swine. Where hogs follow cat
tle which are receiving cottonseed meal
as a portion of their ration there is
practically no danger, provided the
feed boxes are so arranged that the
steers, do not root much, if any, of the
cottonseed meal out-Farmers Advo
The Manure Spreader.
Speaking of the advantage of manur
ing land and the convenience of using
the manure spreader, a writer, in the
Homestead makes a report of wheat
yield on land top dressed last fall and
land not manured. In connection with
the statement the writer says that the
land top dressed was if anything poor
er than that not manured. The writer
says: "When thrashing the wheat was
gathered from the top dressed portion
first and 270 bushels were, thrashed
Iromrit, making the yield thirty bush
els to the acre. From the remaining
sixteen acres but 200 bushels were
thrashed, making that yield twelve and
a half bushels to the acre. Thc top
dressing with a spreader- made a dif
ference of seventeen and a half bush
els to the acre. Who will say the ma
nure spreader does not pay?"
Winter Feed For Poultry.
In the fall of the year on every farm
succulent food which would, be relish
ed by the poultry and converted into
money in the shape of high priced
eggs is thrown away. Save the small
potatoes which you have in years past
been .feeding to the hogs. Maybe you
have a surplus of cabbage. If so, save
for chicken feed. The turnip crop may
give you a surplus, and these will be
relished by the hens this winter. The
same is true of surplus beets. If the
cellar cannot accommodate this chick
en feed, dig a hole in the ground, place
the potatoes, cabbage, turnips and
beets therein and cover with a layer
of straw and then with dirt to prevent
freezing. It will pay to save this feed
for the poultry.
Twig blight often appears to a de
structive extent upon young, thrifty
apple and pear orchards. This is a bac
terial disease, and no-amount of spray
ing will be of service. Cut and burn
ali affected parts and avoid highly ni
Canker Is another serious pest Care
fully cut out and burn all canker spots
and paint the wounds with pure white
lead and linseed ofl. The same may
be used for black knot of plum and
- cherry.-Maryland Station Bulletin.
The Henhouse Floor.
' Dry earth from the roadside or from
the fence rows should be gathered and
put under cover before the fall rams
set in. This earth, when free1 from
sticks and stones, makes an excellent
material to spread under the hen
roosts during the winter. It ls cleaner
. and better than sifted coal ashes. For
fifty hens five one-horse cartloads
would be ample. The earth should be
gathered when dry, pct In barrels and
kept under cover.-Baltimore Ameri
Poultry on tho Farm.
I The farm provides the ideal environ
ment for poultry. The fine chickens
of the country should be produced on
the farm rather tuan on the city Jot
There are no chickens so healthy and
so vigorous as those grown on the
farm. The farmer has opportunities
in rearing pure bred poultry which
are not afforded other breeders.
Whole Corn For Hone.
After comparing the merits of whole
corn or cracked corn for laying hens
the Maine experiment station concludes
there ls nothing in the -results to sug
gest that lt ls necessary or advisable
to crack the corn for the hens kept for

swellings on ali farm animals is made
by mixing equal parts of turpentine,

If the old birds with eggs appear
uneasy and leave the nest very fre

and you will probably find lice.

'make yellow flesh and fat while the
absence of green stuff from the food
tends to produce white flesh.
