SC?TTER MANURE NO?

Task fs Especially Essy In Winter*

03y M. F. MILLER. Missouri College of
All available manure should be scat
tered evenly over the fields before
spring work is likely to begin. It is
always best to scatter it before it has
had time to lose any of its plantfood
by lying in the rain or by fermenting,
and it is especially easy to do this in
the wintertime when the other work is
not so pressing. Even scattering is
much more important than most peo
Greater returns per ton are secured
by light, evenly scattered applications
over a large area instead of heavy ir
regular scattering over a smaller acre
age. For this reason, the spreader will
soon pay for itself on farms of 100
acres or more simply by increasing the
returns per ton from the manure, to
?say nothing of the saving in labor.
' If possible, it is better to use the
spreader because (1) it saves work, (2)
lt makes it more likely the manure
will be saved and scattered promptly,
land (3) most important of all, it
makes possible the even scattering

week. If this plan cannot be followed,
the stock may be fed in an open shed
and the manure allowed to accumu
late on the floor where lt will be
tramped down and kept compact and
moist enough to prevent fire fanglng
or rapid fermentation. Even in the
open shed a great deal of the fertiliz
ing value will be lost through leach
ing into the ground unless the floor ls
of concrete or similar material. En
tirely aside from the fact that it helps
to insure a dry sleeping or feeding
place, the concrete floor helps to pay
for itself by the saving of manure
j Probably the least possible loss in
manurial value results if the animals
can bo allowed to run upon the fields
which need the applications. If the
feed lot is located on a hill side, the
value of the manure may be largely 1
lost through washing, but If lt ls lo

from time to time better results will be
Obtained. Fields that are too far from
the barn or feeding headquarters can
hardly be handled in this way, and
long winters or continued bad weather
make it much more difficult, but if the
ground remains frozen so that it is
not injured by tramping and the
weather is not too severe, it Is usually
possible to take advantage of this plan
and every effort should be made to :

TIME FOR REPAIRING FENCES
,Work Done During Winter Season Is
N Just That Much Time Saved
Spring ls Rush Season.
} Most farmers delay the repairing of
fences until spring, but this is gener
ally a costly delay. Where parts are
rotted off the fence will sway back
and forth with the wind and weak
posts will be broken off which might
otherwise have lasted for a year or two
longer. Then the fence may become
broken or stretched, to Its injury. The
spring is always a rush season for ev
ery farmer. Fence repairing done in
the winter is just that much time
saved. There will be plenty to do next

Mrs. Jay McGee, o? Steph
enville, Texas, writes: "For
nine (9) years, I suffered with
womanly trouble. I had ter
ribie headaches, and pains in
my back, etc. It seemed as il
I would die, I suffered so. At
last, I decided torry Cardui,
the woman's tonic, and it
helped me right away. The
full treatment not only helped
me, but it cured me."
Hie Woman's Tonie
Cardui helps women in time
of greatest need, because it
contains ingredients which act
specifically, yet gently, on the
weakened womanly organs.
So, if you feel discouraged,
blue, out-of-sorts, unable to
do your household work, on ?..a
account of your condition, stop '
worrying and give Cardui a
trial. It has helped thousands
of women,-why not you?
