SAVES EFFORT MOVING HOGS
"Live-Pork Wagon" Is Extremely Use
ful in Handling Swine-Inexpen
sive and Easily Made.
This drawing shows the plan of my
"live-pork wagon." That it is handy
and useful is demonstrated by the big
demand there is for it among my
neighbors, writes C. H. Patridge of
Valley county, Nebraska, in Farmers
Mail and Breeze. I made it out of an
old buggy that had been discarded.
The floor of the crate is made of two
1 by 5-inch boards 5 feet long. The
standards ale 2 by 2's and wagon bed
straps are UH ed for braces, just as in a
wagon bed. The top and front end are
made of 1 by 2-inch strips. The end
gate ls made of rough lumber with
heavy strips to prevent breaking when
loading heavy hogs. Two heavy strap
?inges are fastened at the bottom, be
ing bolted on to'give strength. Two
catches at the top hold the gate up
when closed. Once a hog ls half way
in you can grab up the end of the
gate and in he goes.
The bottom should not be more than
10 inches above the ground. The front
axle may be used as it comes from the
buggy, the crate being narrow and set
back far enough to permit turning. A
drop axle is used for the rear wheels.
This wagon hauls Duroc-Jerseys better
than any other breed of hogs.
.KEEPING HOG LOTS SANITARY
Ounce of Prevention Is Worth More
Than Pound of Cure-Pr?vido
Clean, Wholesome Pood.
Never wait until your hogs begin
getting sick before you be?gin to clean
up and improve the sanitary condition
of their quarters. In this matter an
ounce of prevention is worth more
than a pound of cure. The plan
should be to prevent by cleanliness,
good sanitation and plenty of pure,
fresh water, your hogs from getting
sick, and it can be done by the
proper kind of treatment
Give your hogs plenty of clean pas
ares where there are no longer hog
disease germs in the soil, and provide
'clean, wholesome food; scald, disin-:
feet and clean the troughs and swill ?
?barr?is while the hogs have good
health, and don't wait until they are
sick to begin it. This should be done
frequently during warm weather espe
And above all things, don't compel
your hogs to lie in their own filth, or
any other filth for that matter, for it
breeds disease. Clean quarters, clean
food, clean water, pure air are tho
best preventives against hog cholera. ?
CATTLE KILLED BY LIGHTNING
Ground Wires Attached to Fences
Will Afford Protection During
Sudden Electrical Storms.
During the season of severe thunder
showers many cattle are killed by
lightning. Why not reduce the risk?
Briefly, here is what one Interested
party recommends as a step toward
protecting animals in pasture during j
.midden electrical storms:
Ground pasture fences at least ?
?every 20 rods.
Use No. 9 wire. Staple It down the :
.post across the strands of fence wire.
Extend the wire into the ground about
three feet, and allow it to project a i
'few inches above the top of the post

Unity With the Father ls the Key
Stone Upon Which AH
"The shell was not filled with
pearls until it was contented (that is,
ceased from unrest)."
In this old Persian proverb we find
an example of the same truth that
was given by Jesus in his lesson re
garding woriaiy care, so beautifully
illustrated in the story of the "Lilies
of the Field," ending with the in
junction: "But seek ye first the
kingdom of God eral his righteous
ness and all these things shall be add
ed unto you."
Not until one ceases from all anx
ious seeking after and striving for
possessions and settles down into a
state of peace and rest, through ab
solute trust in God for his supply,
can he realize the truth that all
things whatsoever he desires are in
reality his, that as a child of God
they rightfully belong to him, else
he would not desire them, and that
through conscious recognition of the
fact, he will come into possession of
his own through natural attraction, if
quietly resting and trusting, in con
fident expectation that the supply will
come as needed, in the right time and
In the Knowledge of the Truth.
The conscious knowledge of unity
with the Father, who is the source of
supply, gives the realization of unity
with the manifestation of supply in
whatever form or shape needed, thus
all fear and belief in lack, which is
caused by the ignorant belief in sep
aration from our supply, is eliminated
from the consciousness. The feeling of
trust and security which follows en
ables one to maintain an attitude of
equilibrium and poise in all circum
stances and conditions. Nothing can
disturb him who knows the truth,
for he feels the power which knowl
edge gives and rests serenely in that
consciousness. He knows that he has
only to make use of this power, in
faith and trust, to bring to him any
thing ho needs when he wants it. He
becomes a law unto' himself. He
knows, also, that he is responsible for
the way in which he may use this
power and therefore must use it in
accordance with the law of right
eousness, else he will bring direful
consequences upon himself. Knowl
edge and responsibility are insepara
ble, and only through right use of his
power can one produce harmony In
his life and affairs and so be free
from the adverse consequences result
ing from its misuse.
Man's Divine Gift
Man Is given freedom to make his
world and conditions what he will,
and he learns through the use of his
power how to use it aright, a state
of heavenly blessedness; a conscious
es of peace and power within, and
the fulfillment of all his desires. His
hopes and aspirations will all be real
ized and he will find rest In the con
sciousness of being in possession of
the source and cause of all things,
either In the heavens above or the
earth beneath. "I and the Father are
one and all that the Father hath is
To arrive at this grand consumma
tion one must cease from all unrest
and should cultivate a state of peace,
and trust in the omnipotent goodness
of God, who is the life and substance
of all things and in due time the
realization will follow. The following
exercise in concentration and medita
tion will assist in producing the de
sired state of mind for the above
realization: Concentrate the attention
upon tho Supreme Being and meditate
upon his all-abounding and unchange
able love and goodness until you be
come conscious "Of your unity with it.
Then whenever this consciousness is

and take possession of you, make it

Misers With Minutes.
A minute is the efficient man's ally
in getting work accomplished. The
unused minutes in most lives are suf
ficient for the learning of a foreign
language. A native Chinese Christian
preacher, who in addition to his
evangelistic work oversees several
schools and cares for the Y. M. C. A.
work, became proficient in the use of
English. One of the American mis
sionaries wrote that he was able to
accomplish this by using the spare
minutes that others spent In idle talk.
Recently a friend expressed surprise
that a man who seemed always to be
responsible for work sufficient for sev
eral men nevertheless found time to
read so much. "I put the reading into
niches of time here and there," he
explained. Are there things that you
are longing to do if there were time?
Do not wait for the elusive hours, but
snatch the ever-at-hand minutes and
begin to do those things.-Sunday
Dwelling In God.
"Come unto me," says the holy
Jesus, "all ye that labor and are heavy
laden, and I will refresh you." Beg
of him to be the light and life of your
soul; love the sound of his name;
for Jesus is the love, the sweetness,
the compassionate goodness of the
Deity itself; which became man, so
men might have the power to be
come the sons of God. Love, and
pity, and wish well to every soul in
the world; dwell in love and then you
dwell in God.-William Law.
SWINE ON ALFALFA PASTURE
Desirable to Have Fields Fenced Off
Into Suitable Areas to Shift Hogs
From Ono to Another.
(By G. W. BARNES, Arizona Experiment
While a few hogs can be raised con
fined in limited quarters, provided
such quarters are kept clean, they
will do better, remain healthier and
produce pork more economically if
they have plenty of alfalfa range.
It is desirable to have the alfalfa
pasture fenced off into suitable areas,
BO that the hogs can be shifted from
one pasture to another. This will not
only provide fresh pasture, but will
give an opportunity to cultivate, and
if need be to disinfect.
Practically all cases of intestinal
worms, which are common in swine,
are contracted from infected grounds;
therefore, by pasture rotation you can
help keep your hogs free from these
