Chief obstacles in successful dairy

tensive methods and not applying busi

must stop guessing and know for sure
what the results will be and adopt the
ways of most profit.

BEST SiZZ OF SILO TO BUILD
Not Advisatss to Construct Recep
tacle With Diameter Over Twenty
In building a silo one should plan
well the width o? the silo. If the silo
is too wide for t.ie number of stock to
be fed from it daily, there will not
be a sufficient amount of silage taken
from the silo per day, especially in
warm weather, to iteep the silage from
A depth of 2 to 2 Vz inches of silage
should be. taken from the silo per day
during the winter months, and a depth
of three inches per day during the
warm summer months.
If the stock on a farm is equivalent
to from ten to fifteen cows, the silo
should have a diameter of about ten
feet; if equivalent to fifteen to twenty
five cows, a diameter of about twelve
feet; if equivalent to twenty-five to
thirty-five cows, a diameter of about
rfifteen feet; if equivalent to thirty-five
:to forty-five cows, a diameter of six

:Sixty-iive cows, a diameter of eighteen
(feet; if equivalent to sixiv-flve to sev
ienty-five cows, a diameter of eighteen
'feet. For a herd of sever..y-five cows
?or over the diameter can be from
?eighteen to twenty feet.
It is not advisable to build a silo
^with the diameter over twenty feet. It
lis a general rule not to make the
;height of the silo less than twice or
?more tha:i three times the diameter.

Yes, the crowning typewriter triumph is here!
It is just out-and comes years before experts expected it I
For makers have striven a life-time to attain this ideal machine. And Oliver has won
again, as we scored when we gave the world its first visible writing.
There is truly no other typewriter on earth like this new Oliver "9." Think of
touch so light that the tread of a kitten will run the keys!
tf"* 9 I1?F8 ?O&l%d ^e new"^av advances that come alone on this machine are all controlled
^>/-4?k^J ? I vi ^1 . by Oliver. Even our own previous models-famous in their day-never
had the Optional Duplex Shift. It put the whole control of 84 letters and characters in. the little fin
gers of the right and left hands. And it lets you write them all with only 28 keys, the least to operate
of,any standard typewriter. Thus writers of all other machines can immediately run the Oliver Num
ber "9" with more speed and greater ease.
This brilliant new Oliver comes at the old-time price. It costs no
more than lesser makes-now out-of-date when compared with this
discovery. For while the Oliver's splendid new features are costly--we have eqaulized the added ex
pense to us by simplifying construction. Resolve right now to see this great achievement before you
spend a dollar for any typewriter. If you are using some other make you will want to see how much
more this one does. If you are lising an Oliver, it naturally follows that you want the finest model.

new-day features. *
Yet we have decided to sell it to everyone everywhere on our famous payment plan-17 cents a d^y! Now
