BEST RATION FOR THE PIGS
Economical to Make Use of All Avail
able Skim Milk-Furnishes
In making up a ration for pigs, it is
.economy to make the best use of the
skim milk available. Experiments
have proved conclusively that where
sufficient skim milk is available to
furnish the protein content of the
ration to balance up corn, it is not
necessary for good economy to feed
any kind of high protein concentrates
to growing pigs.
The proper proportion in which to
feed skim milk and corn for the best
results, is from one to three pounds
of the skim milk to one pound of corn
meal, using the larger proportion of
milk when the pigs are young, and
..gradually increasing the amount of
?ora meal in proportion to milk used.
For young pigs, the ration will be
very materially benefited by the ad
?dition of c liberal portion of middlings,
Well Finished Bunch of Hogs.
-which is a well-balanced feed for pigs.
It is a difficult matter to estimate the
^amount of feed which will be required
by 80 pigs up to August 1, as very
much depends upon the capacity of
the pigs to make rapid gains.
On good rape or alfalfa pasture,
rhowever, no more than 350 to 400
pounds of grain, or its equivalent,
.-should be required for 100 pounds of
gain. The value of skim milk can be
?educed to a grain basis by figuring
:860 pounds of skim milk to equal 100
pounds of grain when fed with corn
4n the proportion above advised.
Figuring upon this basis, lt will not
be difficult to estimate approximately
the amount of feed which will be re
squired for the time mentioned.
TREATING HORSE FOR THRUSH
Hoof Should Be Trimmed Properly,
Diseased Parts Removed and
Strong Disinfectant Applied.
4By M. H. REYNOLDS, Minnesota Ex
Thrush in horses' feet is frequently
.caused by standing in filth. This
changes the texture .of the hoof and
Infection follows. Continuous stand
ing on very dry floors may also cause
this trouble, while in some cases it is
apparently caused by a contraction
of the hoof.
When the horse is shod with high
heel and toe calks or the wall of the
hoof is allowed to grow very long and
the horse stands on hard floor so that
there is no pressure on the frog of
the foot, the condition of the frog is
impaired and it becomes subject to
-infection and disease. Cases of thrush
need a dry, clean stall.
Trim the hoof properly, remove the
diseased parts and apply a strong dis
infectant over the sole of the foot.
Any of the coal tar disinfectants may
be used full strength. Pure carbolic
acid may be used, care being taken
that it does not run down the heel and
hum the skin.
After the first strong disinfectant,
oalome! should be dusted over the dis
eased surface and some thick clay ap
plied to the entire sole.
Working Brood Mares.
If mares are kept at light work the
last few weeks they are benefited by
being worked right up to foaling time.
Brood mares are injured by severe
work which requires them to strain or
oyer-exert. Backing heavy loads is
not a suitable task for mares heavy In
foal. In most years enough mares
will miss getting in foal to take care
of the heaviest work. They are best
off if rested for ten days of a couple
of weeks after foaling.
Whey for Pigs.
Ordinary whey is worth not more
than half as much as skim milk or
buttermilk when fed the pigs. Most
of the muscle-building material is
taken out of milk by cheese, and the
resulting whey Is very poor in muscle
builders, as compared with ordinary
milk. It takes about a gallon and a
half of whey to equal the feeding

Then he became very much ashamed
of the misanthropic utterance. He
glanced about his lonely but elegant
home, he looked into a mirror and
noted the unusual glow of health upon
his cheeks, he realized that he had
not a real care in the world. Out
side the birds were singing, the How
ers blooming, all radiant nature
breathing purity, peace and promise.
The sun shone at its brightest. Its
rays glorified the redolent garden. Be

It represented the latest facilities for
"Yes, with all this, I may well be
ashamed of myself for finding noth
ing worth living for!" murmured Burt,
Burt went out to the spot where the
hangar was located. With the assist
ance of his hired man the superb bi
plane he operated was wheeled out.
He had become quite an expert avi
ator and enjoyed his air trips greatly.
Under his expert direction the ma
chine struck an upward lateral course,
a thing of life and beauty. He en
joyed the rare exhibition of pure air
and bird-like speed immensely.
Ten miles accomplished, Burt vol
planed to a meadow stretch to adjust
a trivial defect in the control mechan
ism. He had just got in trim to re
sume his. cloud work, when a shout
down the highway attracted his atten
With both Interest and indignation
the amateur airman observed a lad of
about fourteen running towards bim
as if for his life.
Struggling behind him, but in hot)
pursuit, were three men. They were j
shouting and gesticulating. One car-1
ried a cane, which he waved menac- j
ingly. A second had picked up a lot
of stones. These he hurled with va- j
ried aim after the running boy.
"You young rascal!" roared the man
in advance. "Drop it, I tell you, or
I'll have you jailed!"
But the little fellow never heeded
the threatening cries and actions of
his pursuers. He forged straight j
ahead, momentarily nearing the spot j
where Burt stood.
"This way! This way!" shouted ;
Burt, as the boy came nearer. "Climb :
under the fence."
"Oh! oh!" yelled the lad Just at that
moment, in frantic pain.
"Brace up!" cried Burt, leaning over
and lifting the lad clear of the en
tangling wires. "Now, then, who are
"Villains! They'll kill me-and you,
too. Oh, they're coming!"
They were, indeed, but Burt was
going. He lifted the helpless lad in
his arms bodily, and made a run for
"Don't get frightened," he ordered,
placing his charge in the seat behind
the pilot post and hurriedly strapping
"Quick, mister! oh, quick as you
can!" insisted his passenger, with a
terrified glance at the fence.
The three pursuers had arrived.
One tried to jump the fence and his
feet tripped and he fell with a thud.
A second attempted to crawl under the
lower wire and his clothing had be
"Don't you interfere with that boy
or you'll be liable to the law!" he
shouted at Burt.
The latter paid no attention to the
threat. He sprang to the pilot seat.
Chug-chug-whirr! and the biplane
went aloft like an arrow.
The dismayed and chagrined men
below vainly vented their wrath on
the rescuer who had baffled them.
The little fellow sat spellbound with
delight at- the rare sensation of an
air flight he had never dreamed of.
For the first time in his life Ralph
Burt had found his mind Invested with
real human interest. It elevated him.
An actor in an exciting and unusual
circumstance, he was eager to learn
what lay behind the strange incident
of the hour.
Soon he knew all about it, for when
the biplane landed on home ground he
took his passenger Into his library
and questioned him.
It came out that he and his sister,
Eleanor, were practically prisoners in
the power of one of his three pursuers,
Giles Warden. Fearing foul play, the
sister had that day given him the will
of her dead father, with the injunction
to place it In the hands of some law
yer for safety and action. Hence the
"Righting a wrong-quite heroic!"
commented Burt's lawyer, when he
was made aware of the facts In the
case. "Why, your new experience has
made you look like a new man. I'll
soon have this affair straightened
It was with a good deal of surprise
that Ralph met "Sister Eleanor" a
week later. He had supposed her to
be a little girl. Instead, confusedly,
he listened to the ardent thanks of a
beautiful young lady.
"You have saved Miss Morley from
captivity and the loss of her fortune,"
advised the lawyer. "She may con
tinue to need a friend."
Day by day Ralph Burt's heart
warmed to new impulses. There
came a finality presaging lasting con
tentment. It was when Eleanor bo-,
came something mora than a friend- /

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 !
The new-day advarices that come alone on this machine are all controlled

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 using an Oliver, it naturally follows that you want the finest model.
