How to Wash a Stable Blanket.
? stable blanket thf.t has been In
use all winter ls usually badly soiled
and heavy, as well a? disagreeable
from a sanitary standpoint. To wash
the blanket is no small task, but by
wise means it may be cleansed with
little trouble and labor. Simply
spread the soiled and saturated
blanket on sod during a heavy spring
rain, and if one rain does not cleanse,
put lt out during another. As soon
as the rain ceases 'and the blanket
can be r?ised, hang it up,' dry it and
take it in.-Weekly Witness. .
. Which is betterto use on land, caus
tic lime or ground limstone?
The former is much quicker in ac
tion, and if put on in excess may "eat
up" much of .the humus. But in
quantities of two to four tons per
acre it is considered safe.
The ground limestone ls much
cheaper, but ls slower in its action.,
' The coarser grains will gradually
yield lime for several years. It is
perfectly safe and should be used as
freely as four tons per acre. If one
does not feel able to put on so much
try two tons. The whole question
of liming land ls not well understood.
On some land crops, especially
legumes, respond wonderfully to its
use, while on other land its effect is
not noticeable and both .tracts may
lie close together. It is a good plan
to lime one ?acre or ten acres, leaving
wide strips without it. On land need
ing it badly it will pay .to lime heav
ily. Sometimes alfalfa will grow into
a wilderness of luxuriance on limed
soil. Lime is best applied on plowed
land and harrowed in,
Advantages of Soiling.
} In his recent address on the advan
tages of soiling in the dairy business,
Mason Knox said to a farmers' club:
Land has increased in value, labor
Is higher and more remunerative re
turns are necessary to the dairy
farmer. To-day we must bring the
luxuriant grasses to our animals the
whole year. In the winter we use
silage and root crops. In the summer
we must'soil our animals. We have
anv intense interest in our business,
and who keep the lazy cattle, the
blacks and whites, must fetch the
food to them. We keep these animals
to produce milk, not to wander for
food. And the Holstein-Friesian Is
not a good forager. When you put
the food before her as you should,
she will consume it and give you a
large net profit. The importance.of
soiling then too depends upon the
breed of animals you keep. It is not
so important to. the Ayrshire to prac
tice soiling as it is to the Holstein
Friesian man. They can be kept On
the moss of rocky pastures and do
well, so they say. However, I wbuld
not advocate any such treatment of
any dalry animal. The Ayrshire is a
wonderfuly good little forager and
for pasture farming has no equal;
but to dalry farmers of this genera
tion who have the land that they can
.. devote' to raising rotating crops such
animals have no place in our intensi
Alfalfa seed is a difficult thing to

3. It should contain very few small
or shrunken seeds.
4. It must be free from weed seed.
You will have to look sharp If you
catch the dodder seed in it. These
seeds are so small they suggest to
Some farmers are so careful to se
cure good seed that they write weeks
before needed to a dozen firms for
samples and sprout a hundred seeds
to study vitality. If eighty-five or
ninety of these 100 grow strong they
have fair seed. To watch for weeds
one should spread it on white paper
and examine with a glass.
On thin soils alfalfa should be pre
ceded by a crop of cowpeas or clover.
And if the ground is acid it will al
most insure a crop to sow two to four
tons of lime per acre. In "southern
counties below the drift alfalfa needs
fertilizing. But there are many suc
cessful fields south of the drift.

Cow Stanchions er Chains.
We are often asked to give our Idea
as to the best method of fastening
cows in their stalk?-whether stanch
ions are more satisfactory than
chains. This is largely a matter of
taste, although stanchions have ad
vantages over chain fastenings. Per
haps the stanchions are a little more
noisy, b?i they give parfect freedom
to the cows, either while feeding or
lying down, and are by no means the
cruel appliances some narrow-minded
people are inclined to consider them.
We even believe that cow chains give
the cows a little too much freedom.
We have seen cows tied with chains
almost turn completely around in
their stalls. We have known of other
instances where they have choked
themselves to death when fastened in
this manner. The stanchion prohib
its both of these troubles. There are
some stanchions made so that every
cow may be fastened or loosened at
once by throwing a single lever. This
is a time-saving invention which the
dairy farmer appreciates. Every min
ute must be made to count on the
dairy farm, so that labor-saving de
vices of this sort are also money
savers as well as a protection for the
cattle themselves. We know of an
instance where an attendant had an
eye put out by a cow throwing her
head when he was about to put the
chain about her neck. The cow
stanchion does awny with this danger.
All things considered, we believe that
the stanchions are far superior to the
chain' ties and every practical dairy
man is quick to realize the advan
tages of this modern convenience for
the dairy farm.-Weekly Witness.
Improving the Pig Crop.
Many farmers have started out this
spring with the intention of doing
better by their coming crop of pigs
than they have in the past.
By doing better, I mean giving
closer attention to the feed problem,
and the care problem, so that the
pigs, when mature, will have made a
favorable growth at a low cost, and
at .the same time have developed
strong frames, especially in the case
of those pigs which are intended to be
kept for breeding purposes.
It'will be well for every man who
desires to bring his pigs through the
season in good form and condition to
calculate to supply some of those
foods which are known to have a
favorable influence on the develop
ment of the framework of .the pig.
It is needless to say that corn alone
will not serve the purpose. While it
is true that corn in conjunction with
good pasture makes a diet for the
growing pigs which can hardly be im
proved on, it often happens that the
pasture contains little to attract the
In that case they are sure to lie
around the yards and stuff themselves
with grain in preference .to seeking
the grass and the exercise which they
so greatly need in conjunction, which
is so essential to the health and thri.'t
of the animal.
The best bone-building foods are
those rich in protein and mineral mat
ter. Skim milk, perhaps, stands at
.the head of the list, and it will pay
to lay in some tankage, shortage, and
possibly some bone meal, as well as
pure mineral matter.
It cannot be expected, however,
that the feeding of feeds bearing
large amounts of mineral matter,
such as have been mentioned, will
change the conformation of any part
of the skeleton, or, for example, make
a pig stand straight, if he is other
wise. The improvement will have to
be made through selection, using no
male or female that is faulty, f
It might, too, be urged that if care
ful selection were practiced, it would
be unnecessary to consider the diet,
s.;uce strong boned breeding stock
would naturally impress these good
points on their progeny.
On the contrary, it might be said
that men have been trying for years
to breed poor hpg3 out of their herds
without giving attention .to a balanced
food ration problem, and they are j
practically where they started.
We generally find that when men
feed little or no grain and do not care
to hasten the growth of their pigs,
the quality of the bone is generally
Eut there is a good deal of time re
quired in growing pigs in this man
ner, and while time\is nothing to the

How and Why They. Were Intro?
doced Into Hospitals.
In the operating rooms of hospi
tals and on the surgical carriages in
the wards may be seen a piece of
soap stuck with the varieties of pins
which it pleases the doctor and the
head nurse to most affect.
The black headed pin long associ
ated with crinoline dressings, retains
still an honored place, says the Al
umnae Magazine of Johns Hopkins
Hospital. The history of the intro
duction of the soap into the hospital
Three years ago Dr. R. H. Follis
operated upon a patient at the
Church Home. The patient was a
tailor by profession and chanced td
reside at Annapolis. When dressings
were made he observed the difficulty
with which the safety pins were put
through the binder and suggested
trying the method the cadets at the
Naval Academy had evolved to help
in pinning through their stiff ducks.
This simple but most effective de
vice was a piece of soap as a pin
cushion, and he further remarked
that carpenters applied the same prin
ciple to screws. Dr. Follis immedi
ately tried the plan, with such 3uc
cess that it has been generally adopt?
ed in the surgical service. j

THE MOON VINE.
One vine that grows quickly is the
moon vine, botanically known as Ipo
moea Mexicana grandiflora.
The flowers are four or five inches
across and open early in the evening
and remain open until the sun shines
upon them. They are most fragrant.
It is interesting to watch the blos
soms open. If1 at the right time you
turn j'our back upon them, closed,
when you turn again to face them
they will be open. Literally, they
open as quickly as one could open an
The three things necessary to make
them grow are sunshine, lots of fer
tilizer and lots of water. Plant the
vine, which may be a cutting, in a
slight depression so the water may
soak in, and once or twice in two or
three weeks give a liberal dressing
of fresh cow manure or pulverized
sheep manure for the water to carry
down. . It is not unusual for a vine
to grow a foot a day.-Indianapolis
FLOWERS IN THE YARD.
Besides the shrubs in the yard we
must have flowers. Plant all you
can afford to buy, if you are prepared
to take care of them. If you do not
wish the trouble of caring for them,
do not plant them. Starved, sick,
discontented flowers cry out for help
to every passerby. Cruelty to flowers
should be made a criminal offense.
It is almost as bad to abuse a beauti
ful flower plant as to beat a horse.
Don't plant in round beds. Plant
In long beds In front of the shrubbery
where the flowers can have the back
ground of: green foliage. Plant the
tall, brilliant-colored flowers at the
back, the cannas, hollyhocks and the
like. Take that big ugly canna bed
out of the lawn and string the cannas
out two or three plants deep in the
front of the tall shrubbery way back
in the yard. Plant the smaller and
more delicate ones near the front.
Plant some sweet-scented flowers
near the porch and near the windows
of ;the living room. Plant little tri
angular beds in the sharpe corners of
the walks. Above all, do not put
clashing colors together.-Indianap?
PLANTS AND THE SOIL.
There is no soil so poor that it can
not be made to grow flowers, vege
tables, shrubs and trees well, if prop
erly treated. Successful cultivation
demands two things-a good mechan
ical condition of the soil and rich
ness". The first is equally as impor
tant, even more important than the
second. Given a soil in good meehan- ?
ical condition, it is simply necessary
to work in the proper amount of well
decayed manure at planting time.
Never dig fresh manure into the
ground just before planting. If you
have none which is well rotted and
can not get any, then spread the
fresh manure thinly on top of the
ground between the plants and allow
the rain to wash it in gradually. If
the soil has been cultivated before
and has plenty of decayed vegetable
matter in it, excellent results may be
had with artificial fertilizers bought
from the florist or seedsman.
Bone is good, but it is not a com
plete fertilizer. Wood ashes should
be used with caution, as the large
amount of lime they contain may do
mischief. The best is what is known
as a complete fertilizer. Ask when
you buy it how to use it and never
use more than directions permit. A
very l'ght sprinkling over the soil
after spading or plowing and then
raked in is best. Chemical fretilizers
are very strong and will kill or in
jure plants if used to excess.-Indian?
THE SUGAR BEET.
A subscriber, in Adams County,
asks a number of questions about the
culture of sugar beets; it is quite
probable that many of our readers
are interested in the subject. In Mich
igan and other States where consid
erable attention has been paid to the
industry, the interest seems to be
growing, and the indications are that
growing the beets for the factory is a
fairly profitable business for the far
mer. Years ago when experiments
with beets were carried on at Perdue
and in other parts of the State the
sugar per cent, in our beets was found
to be fully equal to that in other
States where trial was made with
them, and where since then large and
prosperous factories for making the
sugar have been maintained. We
have never fully understood why' In
diana failed to engage in the beet
One question asked by our corre
spondent is "How many tons of sugar
beets can one expect to raise, per
acre, on ground that will produce
from seventy-five to ninety bushels of
That would be number one land
and would produce a crop of beets
considerably above the average,
which is from twelve to sixteen tonB
per acre. Such land as he describes
ought to be good for twenty tons. The
factories pay from $4 to $4.50 a ton
for the beets, the cost of producing
and harvesting varies from $25 to
$30 an acre, so that a twenty-ton
crop would be quite profitable.-In?

CARE OF THE COW.
Mr. Ferree Hoyt, of Washington
County, Indiana, says to prevent a
cow sucking herself, he uses the head
stall of a halter, and puts on the
cow's head, and a clrclngle around
her body back of the forelegs, then
take u piece of wood sufficiently
strong, and of the proper length, to
extend from the headstall back be
tween the forelegs to the circingle.
This prevents sucking, and is not a
burden to the cow, he says.
SUCCESSFUL PIG GROWER.
Our experience in saving the pigs
and getting them started right has
been for about fourteen years. ?
The first thing1' necessary to be a
successful hog raiser is to get ready
in a right way. I build my houses
so the sow can keep warm if the ther
mometer stands at zero. I breed my
sows to farrow in February and in
August. In the fall I sow about three
patches of rye and when it sets up
good I let my pigs run on it until
about Christmas, then I take them
off for the spring litter. When the(
pigs are about one month old I begin
to give them warm cream separator
milk, and by the time they are nine
or .ten weeks old I have them ready
to wean and push to a finish at seven,
or eight months.-Warren J. Smith,
in the Indiana Farmer.
SILAGE IN LIEU OF PASTURE.
Referring to feeding corn silage
the year round, Hoard's Dairyman
says that when land is too expensive
to pasture, that is, when silage from
an acre will feed three, or four cows
while an acre of pasture will feed only
one or two cows, the silo becomes one
of the most economical as well as the
best methods of preparing succulent
feed for cows the year round. We
believe that a silo is one of the best
methods of supplementing short pas
ture during the dry time in summer.
Silage is not equal to good June pas
ture, but we do not know of a better
substitute. There is no question'but
that more milk can ' he, produced per
acre by the use of the silo than from
an acre of grass.
This is just the thing a good many
dairy farmers have yet to fully
realize, that corn silage can always
be relied on for producing milk, and
especially is the thing to carry milk
production through dry seasons when
there is no grass pasturage*.
FEEDING COWS FOR PROFIT.
A practical dairy farmer in Canada,
referring to his experience, in the
Farm and Dairy, lays down the fol
lowing rules for dalry feeding at the
First, build a summer silo and
grow more corn, using ensilage to
supplement pastures .in summer.
Second, take fifteen acres of land
(on a hundred-acre!"farm) near the
buildings. Divide .into three fields.
Follow, a three-year rotation thereon.
First year: Corn, an early variety.
Feed in August and September.
Second year: Mixed grain, oats,
peas and barley (four bushels per
acre) seed down ten pounds red
clover, four pounds timothy per acre.
Cut quite green in July. Do not al
low .to lodge.
Third year: Clover cut in late
June and early August.
Do not hesitate to feed this fifteen
acres of crop in the summer, even if
things should look blue for the win
ter forage supply. Let no considera
tion prevent its utilization at the
proper time, not even an abundance
of grass. It will always pay to feed
euch forage in summer.
MIXING CATTLE BREEDS.
There is a good deal of force in the
following, on the subject of crossing
breeds, by a correspondent of the
Breeders' Gazette. He says:
The tendency of the American
farmer in the past has been to hybrid
ize all his farm animals. Even his
hens all became a mixture after a
year or two. Especially has this
been the case with farmers in the
Eastern States. Those who had Jer
sey cows have crossed and re-crossed
with Holstein-Fresian tbulls until
they have got neither one nor the
other, and some of them come very
near to nothing. Some farmers
seemed to think they could outwit
the Almighty by crossing the Jersey
with the Holstein and so get the large
flow of the Holstein with the rich
milk of the Jersey. The difference
between the two breeds is too great.
Nature was shocked and dumbfound
ed. The result has been in many
cases the small yield of the Jersey
coupled with the poor quality of the
There is a vast difference between
a good Holstein and a poor one, both
in quality and quantity of milk. Jer
seys also differ very much in regard
to quantity of milk. A herd of first
class Jersey cows is as good as a
gold mine to a farmer who knows
how to handle them for best results
and improve them by judicious se
lection. The same can be said of
the Holstein. The breeder of Hol
stein cattle is quite apt to condemn
the Jersey cow, and the breeder of
the Jersey is apt to condemn the Hol
stein. There are noble specimens in
each breed, and the breeders, the
men who handle the animals, are re
sponsible for BO many poor ones. It
is the result of carelessness, lack of
judgment, taste and discrimination.
The Shorthorns are rapidly coming
to the front and the milking strain
of this breed will doubtless supplant [
many of the mongrel Jerseys and j
Holsteins that now occupy the land.

up too soon and came home, whichjthrew me into chills.
I was not sick with pain, but was .without either energy
or appetite. I grew worse and took to my bed, being
under a physician's treatment for over a month, without
relief.! My mother bought me a bottle of Cardui and before
it was gone I was eating heartily. Before 4 bottles were
taken I was entirely well."
