DOG DAY DISHES.
In these sultry August days we en
joy and look for the cooling foods and
beverages. It Is well during this hot
? weather to avoid heavy desserts and
.use seasonable fruits in abundance.
Cocoanut Mousse.-Dissolve a tea
spoonful of powdered gelatine in two
tablespoonfuls of water, add half a
cup of boiling milk, cool and add a
"cupful of cocoanut, three tablespoon
fuls of orange juice and two cupfuls
-of whipped cream. Pour the mixture
into a chilled mold, pack in Ice and
salt tor four hours. Garnish with
Cheese Custard.-Beat four eggs,'
add half a cupful of boiling milk, three
tablespoonfuls of grated cheese, sea
son with salt and pepper and put into
buttered timbale molds. Stand the
melds in a sauce pan and let the water :
come to half an inch from the top;,
simmer very gently until the mixture
is ?rm. Serve on rounds of buttered
Lamb Cutiezs.-Lay six slices of j
fat bacon in a frying pan, a diced tar
nip, a sliced onion and a sliced carrot, |
a little grated nutmeg and a few spigs ;
of parsley: then on top lay six lamb'
cutlets, a half cup of orange juice and ;
enough stock to cover. Put on the
lid and cook slowly until the cutlets;
are tender. Remove the sauce pan J
and let thc contents cool. When the
cutlets are cold press them between
plates. Drain the liquor and dissolve
two tablespoonfuls of gelatine in it.
When it begins to harden, pour a lit
of it into a dish, lay. the cutlets close
together in this and put the rest of
the jelly on top. Allow it to stand on '
ice for three hours. Mix a pint of
cooked peas with half a pint of the
aspic jelly and set away to harden.
Unmo?d the cutlets, cut them with a
.sharpened cutter, arrange on a plattc-r
in a circle with the jellied peas in the

Every one knows how annoying and
often destructive rocking chairs may'
be, used on a rug or carpet with heavy ;
nap. If the rocker Is used on a rug
and the nap sends the chair toward
.the walls or other furniture, turn the
rug so that the nap runs thc other way.
A piece ol' burlap the size of a tea

up. It may be dampened and is thiel:
enough to save tho hands.
A blacking box is enough to try thc
patience of a Faint or a man. The
cover is so attached to the box that
it is hard to pry them apart When
once open, put the blacking in a large
topped cold cream Jar with a screw
top. then there will be no trouble
about getting the top off. A piece ci

CLOSET IS OF NO ADVANTAGE
Actual Test Demonstrates Poultry Do
Better Without Curtain-Found to
In the curtain-frcnt type of poultry
< house used at the Maine experiment
I station a feature of the original plan
on which considerable stress was laid
was the canvas curtain in front of the
This curtain, together with the back
wall of the house and the droppings
board under the roosts formed a closet
in which the birds were shut up at
night during cold weather. When the
curtain front house was first devised it
was thought essential to provide such
a closet to conserve the body heat of
the birds during the cold nights when
the temperature might go well below
zero. Experience has shown, how
ever, that this was a mistake. Act
ual test shows that the roosting clos
et is of no advantage, even in such a
?evere climate as that of Orono. On
the contrary, the birds certainly thrive
better without the roost curtain than
with it. It has been a general ob
servation among users of the curtain
front type of house that when the
roost curtains are used the birds ara
particularly susceptible to colds. It is
not hard to understand why this
should be so. The air in a roosting
closet when it is opened in the morn
ing is plainly.bad. The fact that lt is
warm ia no way onsets physiologically
the evils of its lack of oxygen and ex
cess of carbon dioxid, ammoniacal va
pors and other exhalations from the
bodies of the birds.
For some time past it has been felt
that the roosting closet was at least
unnecessary, if not in fact a positive
evil, says a writer in the Baltimore
American. Consequently the time of
beginning to close the roost curtain in
the fall has been each year longer de
layed. Finally, in the fall of 1910. it
was decided not to use these curtains
at all during the winter. Consequent
ly they were taken out of the house,
or spiked to the roof, as the case
might be. The winter of 1910-11 was
a severe one. On several occasions the
temperature dropped to 30 degrees be
low zero. Yet during this winter the
mortality was exceptionally low and
the egg production exceptionally high.
In view of this experience the sta
tion has decided to discontinue the
use of the roost curtain. It wouli
6eem to be generally understood or a?
MAKING ROOSTS MITE-PROOF
Uprights Set in Quart Cans of Water
With Kerosene on Top Prevents
Progress of Parasites.
(By L. H. COBB, in the Farm and Fire
Anyone who has tried to clean out
the mites from roosts that are built
in to the hen-hcuse will appreciate tho
simple plan given below. I make my
sets of roosts six feet high, with three
two-by-two-inch roosts. The uprights
are set in quart cans of water with a
half inch of kerosene on top. Mites
cannot get on this roost unless car

easily taken through any door and

INDIVIDUAL HOUSE FOR HOGS
Only Sunshine and Ventilation Need

Furnishes Needed Heat
For 20 years the A style of individ
ual house has been In use. We were
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
ones to go to pieces, so we could build
a few of the new ones to give them a
Recently wo 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 ones.
The most satisfactory dimensions
are as follows: Six feet square, 2^

front. The creep door, 18 inches 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
matched lumber, battened or tongued
and grooved, of the best quality. If
metal ls 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 had at the 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 across the floors. There is no
need of crawfishing to get away from
an angry sow.
FOR THE LIVE STUCK RAISER
Animais Must Be Developed to High
est Degree Possible-Buildings
and Feed Are Factors.
Every aDimal capable of making
money for the owner of $100 an acre
laud 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! ethers spend too little. One
extreme i? quite as bad as the other.
Tit? lrgh price of land in the best
live stock growing sections is a potent
reason why farmers must keep better
stock. Neither the 6crub nor the
poorly fed animal can pay a profit on
high pf iced land.
No man should buy improved live
stock until he has plenty of the right
kirri cf feed and suitable buildings.
Winter ls the time when tuberculosa
is apt to invade a herd of cattle. See
to it now that the barn ls 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 thc dread scourge.
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 litters are: (1) Cora
88 to 90 per cent.; meatmeal or tank
age containing 60 per cent, protein,
10 to 12 per cent. (2) Corn. 75 per
cent.: finely cut clover or alfalfa. 251
per cent. (3) Corn, 80 per cent;|
oats, meatmeal or tankage, 10 pei
cent. For old BOWS the proportion ol
meatmeal or tankage may be cul
down practically one-third to two
fifths and still give good results.
There is absolutely no excuse for a
filthy hog pen.
