SOWING RAPE IN CORNFIELD
Dwarf Essex Rape Broadcasted After
Final Cultivation Best Adapted
for Sheep Pasture.
As a feeding preposition there ls
none that gives better profits, consid
ering the amount of capital invested,
than fattening sheep in the cornfield
where rape has been sowed at the last
^cultivation of the corn. The sheep
may be bought early, and pastured or
fed earlier soiling crops until the rape
is flt for them to be turned into the
cornfield. The Dwarf Essex rape is
the variety best adapted for sheep pas
ture. About five or six pounds of seed
will afford an excellent stand, if sowed
broadcast after the final cultivation of
the corn crop, providing that the con
ations are favorable for an early ger
mination of the seed.
Practically no damage will result to
the corn crop; the sheep will con
sume a large percentage of the lower
leaves and lodged stalks. Old breed
ing ewes that have passed their ma
ternity usefulness, can always be
bought at prices which make them
profitable to turn Into a rape and corn
field. Yearling wethers may be fat
tened In the same way. No grain foods
will be required. Bane alone will pro
duce enough Increase to insure a good
profit By growing rape with the corn
crop, and pasturing it with sheep, an
intelligent flock owner may greatly
increase his income from his corn
RING WORM IS EASILY CURED
University Expert Favors Iodine and
Acetic Acid Treatment for Re
mova! of Trouble.
(By iL BL REYNOLDS, University Farm,
Bing worm appears most commonly
In cattle as a round, slightly raised,
bald patch, being seen especially about
the head and neck of a calf or year
ling. Older cattle, other animals and
men are subject to the trouble. It is
caused by minute vegetable parasites
which grow under the skin, something
like mildew in a grape leaf.
Bing worm can be rather easily
cured by giving the spots a good
scrubbing with soft soap and water,
then treating them once each day with
?quai parts of tincture of Iodine and
glacial acetic acid. The treatment
may be continued for several days,
?as appears necessary.
WEANING COLTS IS SIMPLE
Ordinary Youngster Should Be Taken
' From Its Mother V/hen From Four
to Six Months Old.
The ordinary colt is best weaned
?rom its mother at from four to six
months of age. If the mare has
been re-bred or is kept at constant
hard work, four months is none too
soon, otherwise, six months. If prop
erly handled, weaning is a simple mat
ter. Before weaning, the colt should
be gradually accustomed to u rather
full hay and grain ration, so that when
final separation comos there will be no
setback. And the separation must bc

Good clean oats form the best of all

Cholera Germs and Vermin Flourish

Trouble by Cleaning.
Lice and cholera germs flourish
most in hot weather, and both by a
little work may be prevented. Bun

when a flock is down with contagious
disease ls certainly a ridiculous and
fruitless proceeding and exhibition of
how not to do it
