QUALITIES OF THE LEGHORNS
Birds Are So Active That They Main
tain Good Appetite-Easily Kept
in Good Health.
Leghorns are so active that they
maintain a good appetite and will
stand the heavy feeding necessary to
heavy egg production. Eggs cannot
be made without feed. Tte laying
flock is easily kept in health by an oc
casional cleaning medication, and
there ls nothing happier than a big
flock of Leghorn layers, as their con
tinual "singing" makes evident.
I trust I have said nothing to hurt
the feelings of those who favor other
breeds, says a writer In an exchange.
Flock of White Leghorns.
AU the standard fowls have their
-merits, and for a door-yard flock I
?V0B3A choose one of the heavy breeds.
A Leghorn chick can be brought to a
tallier size in a hurry, but the gain
ta weight is not so rapid beyond that
I hare known pure-bred Leghorns
not to average four dozen eggs a year,
so there is no safety in mere name,
if o the breeding that counts, and Leg
horns can be brought to very high egg
prodttctlo'i and held to lt Do not care
lessly interbreed strains. Find a good
MM and hold to it.
HMD THE QUALITY OF EGGS
Carnell Agricultural Experiment Sta
tion Recommends Candling aa
the Best Method.
Th? Quality of eggs depends not al
together upon the length of time they
hara been kept, but quite as much
?upon the conditions to which they
hare peen subjected between the time
et iayfng and of their final use. More
over, the quality of an egg may be af
fected to some extent by the foods
-eaten by the hen which lays it, and
possibly by the season of the year
?hen lt is laid.
Ail these points and many others
are discussed in a bulletin on the in
terior quality of market eggs, issued
ty the Cornell agricultural exeri
rment station, which explains the proc
ess of egg production and the struc
ture of the normal egg. lt tells also
how the interior quality o? market
eggs may be studied and advocates
candling as the be3t method. It gives
directions for candling and instruc
tions for making candling devices.
FEED GREEN FOOD AND GRIT
Almost Anything Succulent Will An
airer Purpose-Variety ls Desir
able During Winter Months.
lt ia important that some kind of
green food should be supplied when
the hens are confined. Almost any
thing succulent will serve the purpose.
It la not desirable to depend entirely
aa dover and alfalfa in winter. Cab
bage, TZ.ro, mangels, potatoes, turnips,
er eren ensilage should be provided
Little attention need be given to
?sjpplying the hens with grit while on
the range. In winter or when in con
4nement. grit in some form should be
supplied. Lime is also needed for
sholl material. For this purpose oyster
abell is excellent.
Storing Eggs for Hatching.
IB storing eggs for hatching, avoid
tao low or too high temperatures.
About 45 degrees is the best tempera
tere. Then avoid too much handling.
"We have strong doubts about the ad
rantage of turning them while in stor
age. Any advantage in it is, we think,
offset by the risk of soiling the eggs
?nd closing the air-pores.
Waste and Injury.
A surplus of foodstuff fed to a fowl,
er an animal of any kind, above that
digestible and convertible to its needs,
la a waste of food and an injury.
Keep Hen in Laying Trim.
It is just as important to keep a
hen in laying trim as it is to coax the
dairy cow to keep up her flow of milk.
Old Geese Most Reliable.
Old geese lay a greater number of
larger eggs and are more reliable
than young geese.
Manure ls Valuable Asset.
Thtj poultry manure is a valuable
asset. The most satisfactory way ol
storing it is in barrels.

The end of salvation, as the apostle
Peter puts it, is the saving of the soul.
are much inter
ested in that sal
vation, but Satan
has been too suc
cessful in keeping
multitudes of them
confused as to
how it is obtain
able. There may be
three answers to
the question, How
is a man to be
Saved by Prin
First, some seem
to think a man is
saved by adopting
certain theological propositions; cer
tain religious dogmas or teachings.
The weakness of this position ls
quite easily seen by the majority and
they immediately say that the theory
muBt eventuate In practice; there must
be a program of conduct, and that
program must be carried out in actual
Saved by Program.
For such a program the moral law
of God is put to tribute. The ethics
of wise men of Old Testament times;
the best ethics of seekers after truth
of the first centuries; the ethics of the
Sermon on the Mount and of Jesus
himself and his apostles, are all put
to tribute, and a program of lite is
presented, and If lt can be carried
out, salvation will ensue perforce. This
belief is in the faoe of much teaching
of the Word of God that man's right
eousnesses are as filthy rags. Yet,
with all this, there are thousands of
men and women today who are trust
ing Borne program of living to be their
passport to eternal salvation. But
sincere students of the principles and
the ethics of Jesus have found that
other teachings of Jesus take the foun
dation from under this program.
The religion of Jesus Christ ls
unique, being different from all other
religions In that those who are to re
ceive Its benefits are not to do so as
the result of their belief In Its prin
ciples, nor an alignment of their lives
with its program of conduct Neither
Buddha nor Confucius nor Mohammed
comes with such a claim. They give
the principles and the program, but
keep themselves In the background.
Not so with Jesus Christ, and, strange
as it may seem, his religion ls. in a
sense, the most egotistic of all the
religions that the race of man has ever
received. He makes most astounding
claims for himself: He is equal with
the Father; he is the son of God; he
has all power given to him in heaven
and on earth; he can raise the dead;
he can lay down his life, but he can
take it up again; he can forgive sin;
he is worthy to receive ell honor and
worship, both of men and of angels;
in short, he claims to be God. He
clearly teaches that salvation is not
in assent to, nor in belief in his prin
ciples, nor in following a program of
conduct that he gives, but in living
union with himself.
Personality of Jesus Christ.
We may note that in the text we
find that belief is referred to, but no
hint ls given of principles, or a pro
gram of living. The belief here, how
ever, is not to be a mere intellectual
exercise, but a BOUI movement. This
teaching is frequent: "Believe on the
Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be
saved;" "He that believeth on the Son
of God hath everlasting life;" "Come
unto me all ye that labor and are
heavy laden and I will give you rest"
Now all this teaches that religion is
not a matter of principles or program,
but of personal contact with Jesus
Christ. He is represented as the head
of the body, of which saved men are
the members. He is the chief part of
the great spiritual building known as
the church of God. of which his believ
ers are parts. He is the vine in which
believers are the branches. It is In
timate, personal contact all the way
through. One has very properly said:
"Much of the deadness that has come
to modern Christendom has resulted
from loose ideas of the personal ele
ment in proclaiming the gospel; in
presenting a creed instead of Christ:
in presenting a plan of salvation rathor
than a person who saves."
How to get this personal contact
with Jesus? Study Jesus, as he is
presented, especially in the gospels
and epistles of the New Testament as
the Son of God. While no one can say
Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy
Spirit, yet by following the Holy Spirit
in his teaching in the Scriptures, we
may believe that he will give light
upon light as man goes on honestly
and sincerely seeking lo know truth a;
Then let there be an, utter and com
plete surrender of the soul to Jesus
Cht-ist. When Saul cf Tarsus cried:
"What shall I do, Lord?" as ho Ia;
prostrate on the earth by thc gate o:
Damascus, he made the groat surren
dsr which brought him to personal sal
?ratio:.. *ut as well to the adoption ol
principles that gave- him a program o?
::oadUCt pleasing to God.
LOCATION OF MILK IN A COW
Secretory Glands Take Raw Material*
From the Blood and Manufacture
Them Into Product.
In the system of the dairy cow the Ni
are two kinds of glands: excisto. r
glands and secretory glands. A good
example of the excretory gland is tili*
kidney. An excretory gland does ni>.
manufacture, -hut simply serves as a
vehicle for transferring waste frou*
The secretory glands are manufac
turers. They take the raw materia1*
from the blood and manufacture thura
Into a special product. The mammary
gland, located ?1 the upper part of
the udder of the cow, ie a secretory
gland. It takes the raw mat?riels
from the blood and manufactures milk.
The large veins Been under the ab*
domen of the cow do not contain milk,
as a great many people suppose. They
contain Impure blood. This blood ls
returning to the heart. It has passed
through the mammary gland of the
cow, deposited the food material and
absorbed the waste.
As fast as the milk ls manufactured
from the blood, lt ls stored in the
udder of the cow. The milk is being
manufactured all the time that the
cow is fed and cared for. She works
day and night. 80 far as known milk
Is not manufactured any faster during
milking than lt ls any other time, but
the process of milk manufacture con
tinues, and is in proportion to the size
and quality of the mammary gland,
amount of blood and raw material
supplied by the cow.
DEHORNING CHUTE IS USEFUL
Illustration 8howa Device Used With
Success by South Dakota Man
lt I? Easily Made.
We have a dehorning chute which
we use with good success, writes a
Stanley county, South Dakota, writer
In Independent Farmer. Two-inch
stuff ls used throughout, excepting two
upper pieces on each side, which are
1x6. A stanchion ls provided at one
end with loose pin which can be re
moved quickly and animal driven out
In front if desired. After the animal

around its neck and nose ?B fastened
to the windlass and drawn through.
WATER OF MUCH IMPORTANCE
Cows Giving Milk Require Great Quan
tities of Water-As Essential
as Feed in Winter.
Water is fully as important to the
dairy cows as feed during the winter.
They must have access to it so that
they can drink ali they want, wheth
er they have it in automatic water
basins, or in the yard tanks.
Cows giving milk need great quan
tities of water. Careful experiments
have proved that it requires more
than five pounds of water for every
pound of milk produced by the cow.
The milk crop is one which comes in
% . 0
When possible, test the cow's milk
before buying her.
Never buy a cow whose milk testa
below three per cent.

Stanchions are a thing of the past
Cow ties are now in order.

After the good cow is born there is
lots of work in her making.

The sooner dairy tools are washed
after using the more easily they will

Why not settle on dairy farming ap
a business? Then ?reed and feed and
work for a better meed.

Don't use the milk rail for carrying
feed to the pigs if you desire to be
classed as a good dairyman.
* . .
The grade bull calf will not pay for
the cost of rasing if the dairyman can
dispose of his products otherwise.

There's as much in the man behind
the cow as in thc cow herself. Brains
count everywhere in dairying.
As a rule milk should xiot be used
within 15 days before calnng or dur
ing the first five days after calving.
