the hog. This gives an immunity last
ing from three to six weeks. This
method never hurts any hog, even if
given in heavy overdoses.
The seniir.-sinultaneous Is the same
as the single treatment with the ad
dition of a Email quantity of virus or
blood containing the germs capable ol
producing cholera. This gives the hogs
immunity for life, except pigs vacci
nated before eight. weeks old.
Some losses have been reported
from the serum-simultaneous treat

It must be remembered that hog chol

When serum is to be used, first get
all the pigs together in a pen so,
they may be caught easily. Too much

STANCHIONS FOR THE CALVES
Youngster Will Not Worry About
Neighbor Getting Part of His Meas
and Will Drink Slowly.
Harmful results are frequently
brought on in young calves by their
drinking milk too rapidly and too
much at a time
Feeding small quantities and often,
which is the natural plan, is the way
to avoid trouble from this source.
I Where several calves run together
stanchions for feeding may contribute
to less rapid drinking, for with
stanchions the calf is not worrying
about one of its neighbors getting part
of his mess and is thus encouraged to
drink more slowly.

known, distemper, is a contagious

SQUASH INJURED BY BORERS
Whole Patches of Vegetable May Be
Destroyed by Insect in Few Days
-Plan of One Farmer.
Some years the Hubbard squash
vine is badly injured by the squash
borer. The moth lays her eggs on
the outside ot the vine, and in a few
days the eggs hatch into small grubs.
These immediately bore their way
into the stalk where they live un
seen and for a time unsuspected.
For a while the vines grow well;
then as thp borer continues feeding
on the inside of the stalk, the vine
withers and dies. Whole patches of
squash may be destroyed by these
borers in a few ??ays.
In 1914 one farmer made tests of
early and late planting, The early
plantings were begun tn April and
continued into May. Sweet oorn was
used as a companion crop, with the
early plantings to furnish shade for
the squash vines, but every vine ex
cept one was destroyed by the borers
In all the early plantings.
He made late plantings of seed
from June 1 to July 20, which was
the last planting of the season. In
order to hasten the development ot
the plants as an offset to late plant
ing, separate hills were prepared.
Holes were dug from eight to ton
inches deep, which were filled with
rich soil thoroughly mixed with chick
en manure, but he left saucer-like
depressions as an aid to watering
the plants in dry weather. This plan
proved very serviceable, as no rain
fell during six weeks of midsummer.
The plants had to be watered fre
quently to keep them vigorous.
Notwithstanding the drawbacks of
late planting and a dry season, this
crop, of Hubbards was among the best
he had ever raised. Hardly a vine
was attacked by the borers. The
period of squash-moth flying was over
before the plants were above growod.
ONIONS LIKE COOL WEATHER
Plant Will Stand Much Heat After
Making Good Start-Will Not Keep
Unless Properly Ripened.
Onions grow best in relatively cool
weather and require an abundance of
moisture during the early stages of
growth. However, they will stand con
siderable heat after they have mada
a good start, and ripen better If the
weather is relatively dry at the time
This makes them an Important crop
in central and northern latitudes,
where the weather of spring is cool
and moist, and a dry period normally
occurs in August or In. early Septem
ber. However, the season must be
sufficiently long for the onions to ma
ture before the autumn rains set in.
or they are likely never to ripen prop
Unless properly ripened, onions will
not keep. For northern localities it
is sometimes necessary to use only
the earlier maturing varieties.
The above statements refer to the
growing of ripe onions. Green onions
reach edible size in a comparatively
short time, and caD be grown during
the normally cool and moist weather
of early spring in central and north
ern latitudes. As a commercial crop,
they are of minor importance com
pared with ripe onions.
SILAGE CARRIER IS USEFUL
Labor-Saving Device Can Be Used to
Great Advantage by Farmer When
F zed ls Not Too Large.
If you have put up a good strong
silo and your feed yard is not too
large, you will find the silage dis
tributer illustrated herewith a very
useful and labor-saving device. This
overhead silage carrier is described
in bulletin No. 145 issued from the
New Idea in Silage Carriers.

arm must be well guyed and strong-'
ly pivoted. The feed bunks are placed
in the form of a semicircle so the
silage may be dumped directly Into
them from the carrier, as the arm is
swung around. Either hay carrier or
litter carrier track may be utilized for
FEEDING THE YOUNG POULTS
Coarsely Ground Corn Mixed With
Milk Makes One of Best Feeds
for Young Fowls.
One of the best feeds for young
poults is coarsely ground corn mixed
with either sweet or sour milk, or the
corn might be baked in a cake and
then moistened with milk before feed
One should determine as to whether
he wishes to utie sweet or sour milk
and then continue to use the kind de
cided upon as it ls not advisable to
change from one to the other.
This moistened ground corn is
gradual-? mixed wi'h com meal until
they receive clear corn meal when
they are about eight weeks old.
