I am a Candidate for the Prudential Hundred Thousand League this Year
Help me to the goal, that I may win one of the best Life Insurance trips. I have a good start so far of the one hundred thousand.
? As we have something better than others, and something better than usual, I feel warranted in a good sum advertising expense to inform the people
To give you an idea of the dependable soundness of the PRUDENTIAL'S Policy and its popularity, the Company issued and revived more Life Insurance
in one year (1916) last year, than any other of the more than 260 companies operating in the U. S. had in force from its entire record of existence, excepting eight, ac
cording to the Blue Book published by the Spectator Company in 1916,
The Prudential Issued and Revived in 1916 $591,000,000 Life Insurance
THE REASON: The PRUDENTIAL has the STRENGTH of GIBRALTAR. It has the lowest rates with annual
dividends, further reducing the premiums. The .policy is plain with no catches. The policy pro
vides without cost, that if the holder becomes physically disabled, he is excused from paying the
premiums, and this without effecting the policy.
You can surrender a 20-pay life policy with annual dividend
off at the end of 20 years to the Company for more cash than
you have paid the Company. Drop me a card and I will see you.

WINTER SHEEP CARES
Neglect ls at Expense of Poor

If the sheep are neglected and al

A fleece of good quality cannot be

If the ewes are allowed to get poor

thnt the lambs will be weak and will
perish for the lack of nourishment
and from cold, while the lambs from
a well-cared-for ewe will be much
abler to stand the cold if they should

The dams will have more milk for

Sheep need some succulent food dur
ing the winter. They should have some
rough feed, such as corn stover or
clover hay and, above all, they should
have a ration rich in both protein and
Scientists tell us that there is often
more mineral matter removed In a
fleece of wool than is contained In the
sheep's entire body from which the
wool is clipped; hence the necessity
of a ration with plenty of mineral mat

superior wool growing.

the occasion for both is always more

Loose locks of wool are unsightly and
should be removed. The same is true
of any adherent filth, fresh, or in the

KEEPING MANURE IN STALLS
Recommended by Clemson College
Where Fertilizer Cannot Be Spread
on Open Fields.
Stable manure should never be;
thrown out on a field where lt will ?
not soon be mixed with the soil; nor
should lt be piled out in the open, for
much of the fertility will be lost by
leaching. If the manure cannot be
placed on a field that ls to be planted

The stalls should be fairly deep so
that they will hold all the manure
which accumulates between times of
planting the various crops. The ani
mals will pack the manure by tramp
ing, and it keeps best when packed.
It should be moist, but not wet, and
should be protected from sunshine.

SUPPLY CLEAN, DRY BEDDING
Hog Pen Should Be Cleaned Out Once
Every Week and Fresh Supply
Put In-Not Wasteful.
In winter the only way to keep the
hogs' bedding reasonably comfortable
is to keep it dry. If allowed to ab
sorb moisture it freezes, the heat of
the hog's body thaws it again, all of
which makes unsatisfactory conditions
-extreme changes of temperature,
There is but one way to keep it dry
-clean the pen and put in fresh bed
ding once a week. All the old bedding
should be taken out, not simply some
new dumped in. It is not wasteful of
bedding because much less is needed
if it 13 dry.
