For 20 years the A style of Individ
Bal house has been in use. We wera :
-well satisfied with them, writes John
M. Jamison in the American Swine- :
herd, until we saw a neighbor using '
something that we liked better. Then ;
we were anxious for some of the old j
ones to go to pieces, so we could build !
a few of the new ones to give them a
Recently we built three, and liked
them so well that we shall take to ;
pieces the balance of the old-style ones
and make them go as far as they will
in building the new obes.
The most satisfactory dimension

feet high at the back and 5% feet at
front. The creep door, 18 laches wide
and two feet high, cut in the east end,
six inches from the southeast corner.
The large door, 18 inches wide and 4%
feet high, cut in south side at eact
corner. Should be built of the best
notched lumber, battened or tongued
and grooved, of the best quality. If
metal is used for roof, it should be
laid over paper or felt of some kind,
to prevent moisture forming on the
under side of the room, which keeps
the floor wet.
It should be built as close as possi
ble. The only ventilation and sun
shine needed can be bad at tbe doors.
When the weather is too cold for safe
farrowing, a lantern can be hung to a
rafter on the high side, with a short
hurdle cerosa the floors. There is no
need of crawfishing to get away from
an angry sow.
?FOR THE LIVE STUCK RAISER
[Animait Must Be Developed to High
eel Degree Possible-Buildings
and Feed Are Factors.
Every animal capable of making
'money for the owner of $100 an acre
land must be well bred, well fed and
: provided with the right kind of sur
roundings to develop all of its latent
possibilities to the very highest de
Some farmers spend too much
?money for buildings and farm equip
ments! others spend too little. One
?extreme ls quite as bad as the other.
The high price of land In the best
?live stock growing sections ls a potent
j reason why farmers must keep better
istock. Neither the scrub nor the
; poorly fed animal can pay a pi ?fit on
?high priced land.
: No man should buy improved live
j stock until he has plenty of the right
j kirn* of feed and suitable buildings.
Winter ls the time when tuberculosis
'is apt to Invade a herd of cattle. See
ito it now that the barn is in the most
?sanitary shape into which it can be
?put. Above all supply good ventila
tion, plenty of sunshine and forage
.free from dust, and be eternally vigi
lant to detect the slightest cough or
.sympton of the dread scourg?.
/ If the farmer is looking for quick
.returns In live stock and for a large
; percentage on the money Invested,
? there are no animals on the farm that
will beat the sow and the ewe.
Rations fer Gilts.
At the Iowa experiment station
they have found that good rations for
gilts carrying Utters are: (1) Com
85 to 90 per cent.; meatmeal or tank
pge containing 60 per cent, protein,
30 to 12 per cent. (2) Corn. 75 per
cent.: finely cut clover or alfalfa. 25
per cent. (3) Corn, 80 per cent.;
oats, meatmeal or tankage, 10 pet
cent. For old sows the proportion ol
meatmeal or tankage may be cul
down practically one-third to two
fifths and still give L->od results.
LIVE STOCK ;
There ls absolutely no excuse for a
filthy hog pen.

it is all money out of pocket.

Pleasure and Protection
"One of the best reasons why I would not be
without telephone service," writes a Georgia far
mer, "is the pleasure it gives my wife and the
knowledge that while I am away, she has the pro
tection that the telephone gives."
On the farm the telephone dispels loneliness
and is the means of bringing help in any emer
gency that may arise.
