A Gift Suggestion
A petticoat ruffle makes a pretty and
unusual gift for the birthday of a
friend. Now that skirts are so vol
uminous most girls are reveling in fluf
fy ruffles to their heart's content. If
you do not care to embroider the
scalloping, which is really the tedious
part of embroidering a petticoat, have
rather large shallow scallops piqueted
on batiste, nainsook or handkerchief
You can then put a trifle more time
on embroidering with a skeleton stitch
ery a pretty design that will fit partly
into the scallops. The ruffle is then
mounted on a beading of val lace or
fine embroidery and ribbon is run
through and tied in a bow at the front
The flounce should be made quite
?wide, at least two yards and a half,
so that when it is to be attached to
the old petticoat or a new one it will
be wide enough to compare favorably
with the full skirts now in vogue.

Pretty Tea Cloth.
Something new in a cover for the
tea table is sure to be welcome. The
pretty new cover referred to is made
of a loose basket-weave cloth almost
like a heavy scrim. Through this
cloth at intervals of four inches are
drawn threads to make four-inch
squares. The squares which border
the edge are filled In the corners with
a design of a small teapot outlined
against a background of solid cross
stitch in delft blue. Along each side
cross-stitched letters are used In
words inviting one to a cup of tea.
The edge is finished with button
holing, double overcasting or a small
picoted crocheted edge in the blue.
g Pearl 5.000,000 Years
Old Found by Student |
A pearl estimated to have been
formed 5,000,000 years ago and said to
be the eldest specimen of its kind in
the world, was found by Stanley C.
Herold, a Stanford student, six months
ago. The pearl will be presented to
the Stanford museum.
According to university authorities,
the pearl is of little value as a gem,
but the oyster in which it was found
originated, they said, probably in the
Paleozoic period, but which they have
credited to the Eocenech.
"We have no record," said Herold,
"uf pearls having been formed before
the time this one was created. It re
tains considerable luster, and when
thoroughly polished will regain more,
but its 5.000,000 years of existence has

With the present high prices of corn

A well-planned system of grass and
forage crops will greatly reduce the
cost of producing a pound of pork, as
well as maintaining the breeding herd.

together with the drippings from the
hogs, thus improving the pasture land
for future crops of grain and grass.
In this way it is possible to im
prove the fertility of a number of
acres, and at the same time we are
utilizing the land for pasture pur
poses. The pastures and yards should
be planned so that you are not de
pendent upon any one crop at any
time during the season, or you wilt
have an abundance at certain times,
j and no green food at other times.
Among the pasture and forage crops
that are best adapted lo hog pasture,
are rye, clover, alfalfa, field-peas, cow
peas, sweet corn, oats, millet, and
rape. They may bo sown at various

houses and yards should bo kopt in a
clean and sanitary condition, points
out Ross M. Sherwood of thc Kansas
state agricultural college.
"One nest should be provided for
every five or six hens," says Sherwood.
"This is important because when only
a few hens have to lay in a nest there
will be fewer dirty eggs. The location

When a green forage crop is pas
tured with pigs, it is often necessary
to plow under a large portion of the
green forage, which, together with the
droppings of the pigs while they are
running ou the field and being fed
supplementary grain foods, greatly
improves the laud, increasing its
humus content and adding large
amounts of nitrogen to the soil beside
freeing it from noxious weeds. It is
an economical method of building up
a run-down field.
A number of writers have advocated
feeding the pigs nothing but grass and
forage crops, but my experience, both
in the alfalfa region and here in the
East, will not bear out these claims
We fina that in order to secure
fairly good gains we must feed a little
grain food at all times. Forage will
make a great saving, and the best
possible growth and thrift are secured
when wheat middlings, corn or other
grain foods are fed in connection with
such grass and forage crops as al
falfa, blue grass, clover and cowpeas,
and the pigs will reach the highest de
velopment they are capable of mak
It is claimed by the leading pork
producers that a well-managed sys
tem of forage crops will reduce the
cost of producing pork from 30 to
40 per cent
In planning a system of forage
crops and pastures, we must be gov
trmed by the number of pigs, their
size, and quality of the land that is
used for growing these crops.
In my own experience I have found
no better method of improving the
soil than to raise hogs, and practico
a system of growing green forage
crops and feeding them a reasonable
amount of grain food in connectior
with the pasture and forage crops.
To secure the best growth and de
velopment the hogs must have some
grain food in connection with their
pasture and forage crops or there will
be a tendency to promote an abnor
mal development of their stomach
