COMB AND BRUSH FOR HORSE
Equipment Needed in Every Stable
Whether on Racetrack or Farm
Use for Currycomb.
A currycomb, a broomcorn brush, a
scraper, a stiff brush and a number of
rags of the right sizes should be a
part of the grooming equipment of ev
ery stable, no matter whether the
stable is located on a farm or at the
edge of a racetrack. In most instances
the currycvnnb should be used only to
lightly raise and loosen the sweat and
scurf over the fleshy portions of the
horse's body, the main reliance being
placed upon the brush.
The brush ls the best Implement for
cleaning the body, as it does the work
well and easily, and does not irritate
the horse. I find that the principal use
for the currycomb In cleaning most
horses is in using lt to scrape the dirt

and loose hair out of the brush, says a
writer in an exchange. Because of its
steel teeth and general harshness and
stiffness, the currycomb should never
be used about the limbs. There are
some people who can use it on the legs
and about the bony places of the
horse's anatomy without Irritating the
animal past all endurance. They are
softer-handed than most of us.
The broomcorn brush takes the place
of the currycomb in cleaning the
horse's legs. In using the currycomb
it should be laid flat and carried lightly
!.i a succession of curved strokes, un
til all the dust and scurf that may be
in the horse's coat has been loosened.
Then take the brush and with it thor
oughly cleanse the hair and the skin.
After using the brush take a damp
ened cloth and go over the surfuce, fol
lowing this by rubbing with a dry cloth.
In cleaning and grooming the head and
the legs use the stiff broomcorn brush,
clean with the hairbrush, and finish
the operation with the dampened and
ALFALFA PASTURE FOR HOGS
Care Should Be Exercised That lt Is
Not Pastured Too Closely Cut
For "growing out" little pigs and
carrying over dry sows a good pasture
ls a valuable asset to the hog raiser.
Alfalfa makes the best pasture for
h?gs. In pasturing alfalfa, care should
be taken that It is not pastured too
heavily. If this is done, the alfalfa
will be badly killed out in two or
three years and lt will be necessary
to reseed. Pasturing should never be
carried on so heavily but that one
half ton of hay per acre can be cut
three times a season. The occasional
cutting of the alfalfa induces new
sh^ts to grow, and hence greatly In
proves the pasture for the pigs.
HANDLING ALFALFA FOR HAY
Plant Should Be A.lowed to Stand Un
til Well in Bloom-Sprinkle
With Salt and Lime.
To make the best horse hay, alfalfa
should be allowed to stand until well
in bloom, according to the Nebraska
College of Agriculture. In curing horse
hay, it is well to keep in mind that
the dust which is present in so much
alfalfa is largely a result of the pres
ence of foreign moisture, such as rain
or dew, at making time, rather than
the presence of a little moisture within
the plant. If alfalfa hay is stored in
the barn for horses, lt is well, while
mowing it away, to sprinkle it gener
ously with a mixture of equal parts
of salt and air-slaked lime.
MAKING SUCCESS WITH HOGS
Breed and Feed Well and Give Good
Care-Don't Allow Litters to
1. Select large, roomy, stretchy dams.
2. Breed to boars whose ancestry
shows tendency to growthiness.
3. See that sow is in prime condition
every day she carries the litter.
4. Don't allow the litters to lose an
hour's growth from lack of proper nour
ishment or exposure after farrowing.
5. Use every precaution at weaning
time to see that growth is maintained.
6. Bone-making feed must predomi
nate in first six months of pig's life.
7. Maintain balanced ration later on
?nd be sure the pigs grow every day.
CHANGING SEASONS BRINGS COLDS.
"Stuffed-up head," clogged-up
nose, tight chest, sore throat are
sure sierns of cold, and Dr. King's

dose of this combination of antisep

All the male citizens between the
ages of 21 years and 60 years, except
those exempt by law, are liable to a
poll tax of One Dollar each. A capita
tion tax of 5() cents each is to be paid
on all dogs.
The law prescribes that all male citi
zens between the ages of 18 and 551
years must pay $2.00 commutation tax|
or work six days on the public roads.
As this is optional with the individual,
no commutation tax is included in the
property tax. So ask for road tax re
ceipt when you desire to pay road tax.
