PURE-BRED SIRES ARE BEST
Selection of Herd Bull Is of Greatest
Abortion and Tuberculosis.
Farmers everywhere are beginning
to appreciate the need for pure-bred
sires. In dairying the selection of
the herd bull is of the greatest impor
tance because he is at least half the
herd from the breeding point of vi9W.
His influence on the characteristic!} of
every calf bora in the herd is as great
as that of the dam of the calf. If he
ls a pure-bred animal used on grade
cows, his influence will be more than
?half because his transmitting powers
in breed characteristics will bel
No bull whose dam and paternal
grand-dam were not capable of pro
ducing 300 pounds of butterfat in 3G5
days should be used for breeding pur
poses if good results are expected. It
j would be much better if this premium
were set at 350. The prudent dairy
man will select a calf from a cow
'which produced 400 pounds or more
If the use of bulls from dams and
paternal grand-dams producing less
than 300 pounds of fat were prohibit
ed by state law lt would be a long
step in advance. Much damage has
been done by unscrupulous and ignor
ant breeders, who have sold, lor
breeding purposes and at low priC'23,

In getting bulls from other herds
be sure that they are healthy. It is
especially important to avoid conta
gious abortion and tuberculosis. Sat
isfactory young bulls of breeding age
cannot always be purchased easily,
and therefore It is always best to have
a young bull growing up to take the
place of the older herd bull.

MAKES BEST IRONING BOARD
Housewife Tells Tow Useful Appur
tenance for the Kitchen May
The most rigid ironing board I ever
used a carpenter made for me out of
thoroughly seasoned oak, one and one
quarter inches thick, smooth and free
The length of the board was five
feet; the width at widest point, 18
inches, which tapered to eight inches,
then rounded off.
On the under side of the board were
fastened two braces or cleats of wood,
three-quarters of an inch in tlr"kness
and three inches in width.
One of the braces was made flush
with the widest end of the board
the front brace, two feet three inches
from the wide braces, supported a
tongue that reached the back and rest
ed on the floor against the base
Fastened to the brace on the wide
end of the ironing board were two
sections of a pair of loose joint
hinges, so fastened that they would
fit into the remaining part of the hinge
that had been previously made fast to
the window sill.
This enabled me to couple my iron
ing board to the window sill. The
tongue that supported the front of the
ironing board was made fast to the
cleet by a strap hinge.
When not in use the board was eas
ily removed, the tongue placed against
the board, then placed behind a door
or in a closet. When in use I simply
had ironing board perfection, because
the window flooded with light the
work I was doing and the article be
ing ironed seemed to be on a founda
tion as solid as the floor, while the
construction of the device allowed one
to iron any garment on it without mus
Any ironing board can be fixed in
the same way by adding a cleat and
HINTS OF PRACTICAL VALUE
Proper Ingredients for Crust of Pie
Easy Method of Opening
Glass Fruit Jars.
It will aid the young housekeeper
to know just what to use to make
crust for one pie. Here is a reliable
Take one generous half-pint of pas
try flour, one generous tablespoonful
of shortening, half a teaspoonful of
salt, half a teaspoonful of baking
powder. Sift the dry ingredients, rub
in the shortening, moisten with cold
water only sufficiently to roll out;
wet pie crust is never crisp; a quarter
of a cupful of water should be ample.
Pie crust should be rolled in one
direction-away from you.

it draws the flavor and spoils it.

It is easy to open glass fruit jars
without the aid of.a knife if a hot
stove plate is put on top and allowed

If you wish to make a rissole, first
prepare the mince. Then heat It in
a good, thick brown or white sauce,

you use, and bo very careful about the
seasoning, which may consist of pep

finely grated lemon peel, mushroom
catchup, and (if you are using chick
en or game) a little ham or bacon.
Wrarm the well-flavored mince in
well-flavored sauce and see that the
mixture is of the thickness of por
ridge. Then turn it on to a dish and
let It become cold. When cold it will
stiffen a little more, and with well
floured hands you can form it into
the shape you prefer. Have ready a
beaten egg yolk, and brush over, and
roll in fine crumbs. Then fry, drain,
and serve very hot.
To Wash Comforters,

A New Model Typewriter
The Standard Visible Writer
BUY IT NOW
Yes, the crowning typewriter triumph is here!
It is just out-and corn?s 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"* /fl S l"WS ?Tfefal $ '^'ie new"^ay advances that come alone on this machine are all controlled
^>A^Vt/ ? ? HUM ^ . 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 yon 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 tho 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 using an Oliver, it naturally follows that you want the finest model.
