ADJUST THE HARNESS RIGHI
Collar Boils Often Caused by Improper
Fastening of the Trace Chain
on the Hame.
Collar bolls are often caused by im
proper adjustment of the fastenings o?
the trace c?aln on the hame. Every
hame shouii have several places for
adjustment and the regulation should
be made to conform to the slope of the
shoulders of the individual horse.
Horses with straight shoulders should
have traces about midway of the hame,
while horses with sloping shoulders
should have the adjustment about two
fifths of the way up from the bottom.
Adjustment of the backhand will in
a measure correct any weakness in the
formation of the shoulder. The back
hand can be made not only to carry a
part of the weight, thereby adjusting
the dept of the plow, but it can be
made to adjust the draft to fit the
horse's shoulder. The adjustment can
be made either by shortening the back
band or moving lt farther back on the
horse. The length of the trace should
be such as to prevent the horse's legs
knocking against the singletree and
still have no surplus length.
HORSES KNOWN AS 'ROARERS'
Uncomplimentary Terms Used to In
dicate Unsoundness in Animals
--Trouble May Be Cured.
(By C. N. KENNEDY, Oregon Experi
. Whistlers, wheezers, blowers or
roarers. These uncomplimentary
terms were not applied in anger, but
merely used to indicate the character
of the unsoundness In horses, known
as roaring. Their use may be avoided
by saying that the horse lt afflicted
with laryngeal hemiplegin. Horses af
fected with this disease appear nor
mal while at rest, but when severely
exercised the breathing efforts become
much greater and the characteristic
noises are heard. Ninety per cent of
the cases are caused by partial
paralysis of the muscles of the left
side of the neck. It may be cured in a
great majority of cases by an opera
tion on the larynx. The operation ls
not dangerous If performed by a skill
ful veterinarian. Most cases are ready
to be put back to work in course of
INHERIT FERTILITY IN SWINE
Experiments of Kansas Experts
Watched With Closest Interest
Tamworth Most Fecund Breed.
Can litters of 8 to 12 pigs per sow
be Insured by any system of bonding?
Possibly so, is the reply indicated by
the work of Wentworth and Ambel,
Kansas Agricultural college. Their
experiments in breeding will be

Highly Developed Tamworth.
Fecundity appears to be inheritable,
at least to a slight degree. This fact
is borne out by herdbook records, al
lowing for their errors. It is ques
tionable whether the size of the litter
really represents the hereditary fac
tors transmitted. The wild hog usually
averages four pigs per litter, very fer
tile sows of improved breeds often av
erage eight pigs, but the Tamworth,
with an average of 12 pigs per sow, is
the most fecund breed.
LANDS SUITABLE FOR SHEEP
Animals Do Best Where Grasses Are
Produced Naturally or Introduced
Sheep do best on high, dry lend
that is, on hard-soiled lund, where the
grasses adapted to sheep are produced
naturally, or are easily introduced by
cultivation.. The short grasses, or
such as usually are termed pasture
grasses, are essential to the well-he
ing cf the sheep. Cattle and horses
will thrive and do well on hay grasses,
on wet land grasses, tall grasses, but
with the sheep it is different; they
depend on the short-growth, dry-soil
pascure grasses. It is important that
they be not confined to wet, soft, bog
gy pastures. Ihe sheep Inclines to
foot scald, sore feet and Anally foot
rot where the hoof is constantly under
the influence of moisture in the soil.

TOWNS COULD SET EXAMPLES
Streets In Many Small Cities Worse
Than Country Roads-Farmers
Have Better Public Spirit
It Is high time that the rural sec
tions of America called to the towns
to mend their ways and their streets,
says a writer in the Country Gentle
man. This is our conclusion after a
recent tour of hundreds of miles
through a prosperous country. We
found highways In rural sections well
kept and comfortable, but there was a
far different story in the small cities
and in the numerous towns and vil
lages through which we passed. The
main country roads were smooth boule
vards compared with the streets in
the nverago town or city. In some
places where the homes were hand
some and the factories busy the streets
were full of holes.
It was a striking illustration of the
greatest roads failure in America.
Small cities and towns have lagged.
A roads expert, who recently has trav
eled over most of the country, says
the fault is general. . In the past live
years the rural situation has improved
vastly, but the small city and town
showing is sad. When you near a set
tlement you begin to bump.
For this the explanation is that the
town or city has too much local in
difference. A banker said to us:"We
have two factions and each Is so busy
fighting the other that nothing is done
for the town." It is a great pity. The
very communities that ought to be
ahead on good thoroughfares are be
Perhaps farmers might jog them into
right action by taking their patronage
