HOGS INFESTED WITH WUKMTC
'Anima! Cannot Produce Pork Economi
cally While in Weakened Condi
tion-Remedy ls Given.
A hey that is Infester! with worms
cannot produce pork economically, be
cause its system is not in normal con
dition. Furthermore, such a hog is
.also more susceptible to contagious
ami other diseases than one not af
fected in that manner. We have of
ten made the statenent rhnt worms
are frequently the Indirect cause of
Cholera. Do not understand us to
say that worms will produce cholera,
says a" writer in an exchange. Far
from it. Cholera is a germ disease
and cnn he produced only hy the yhol
era germ, but a strong, vigorous hoy
ls not nearly so susceptible to cholera
as is one whose system is in a run
A very good, practical remedy for,
worms consists in r- ?- ling one pound
Of copperas to lo;) pigs for a period
of five days. Thea feed no copperas
for six weeks; after that feed cop
peras for live days ayain as before and
continue this intermittent copperas
feeding from hirth to block. The cop
peras should be dissolved in water
and mixed with the grain, preferably
ground grain of some kind. Many
hoy feeders are using tlds remedy and
recoinmeufl it very highly.
PREPARING S0?L FOR WHEAT
Quite as Much Depends on Prelimi
nary Work for Best Development
as on Use of Fertilizer.
Quite as much depends upon the
proper preparation of the soil for the
best development of plants as the use
of fertilizers. A case in point is that
of an intelligent Missouri farmer who
lived in a section where the idea pre
vailed that wheat could not be profit
ably grown there. He had tried to
raise wheat on his farm, iu the old,
rough way, and cm.ild yet but ten or
twelve bushels per acre. He visited
'the state experiment station at a time
?when a plot of ground was being pre
pared for wheat and became so im-'
pressed with their thorough methods
of soil preparation that he prepared
a field on his farm in the sanie way,
and from this harvested a crop of 35
; bushels of good wheat per acre, the
?only fertilizer used being stable ma

rather than to have it set hack in the

COVERING FOR MANURE HEAP
If Protection cf Some Kind ls Not
Given Valuable Nitrogen and
Nitrates Are Lost.
The manure heap is a scene of bac
terial activities. When it lies very
long the nitrogen is transformed Into
ammonia and escapes. When it escapes
it is gone forever.
Some of the manure changes into ni
trates, and these are washed away and
lost if the manure heap is uncovered.
Nitrates are soluble, and when they
are washed away the farm loses all
their value. A part of the nitrates
are attacked by bacteria and become
