In some localities the common
tjoethod of storage is to place the

Good teem? are essential in good
farming. Without efficient animals it
ls difficult to prepare the land well and
cultivate it economically. Light teams
and not enough animals to draw ef
ficient implements have caused much
poverty among the farmers, and this
condition should be changed.
One of the cheapest ways of pro*
riding cheap teams is to keep two or
three good mares and raise colts

will almost pay for their own feed,
and that of the colts with their work.
Brood mares, when properly handled,
lose little work on account of the colts.
Care must be taken, however, not to
'let the mares get too warm or require
?them to draw too heavy loads; they
?should not exert themselves too se
