KILLING WHITE GRUBS
IPIowing in Late Fall and During
Winter Will Help.
According to Their Life Cycles Pests
Will Be Abundant Next Year,
Causing Much Damage to
Various Farm Crops.
Every effort should be made to pre
vent destruction by white grubs,
which, according to their life cycles,
.will be abundant in 1917 and 1018,
causing damage to timothy and small
igrains in 1917 and to corn in 1018.
Late fall and winter plowing will
destroy many of the hibernating cut
worms as well as such Insect pests
as white grubs. This, therefore, should
be practiced when earlier plowing is
Impracticable. Farm poultry trained
to follow the plow are also a great
value in destroying the pest, and hogs

In most cases the moths lay their
leggs in the late summer or early fall
lin fields which are covered with grass
?or weeds. The worms hatch in a few
:weeks, feed upon this vegetation until
'.cold weather, and then hibernate as
;partly-grown caterpillars. When the
Mnfested field ls broken up and planted
to corn or other wide-row crops in the
; spring, the worms are deprived of their
natural food and are compelled to at
tack the newly-planted crop. They
continue to consume an enormous
amount of food until they have at
tained their full growth, and change
to the pupal or resting stage in late
June or early July.
LAYING QUALITY OF PULLETS
Purchase a Purebred Male and Stop
Trying to Keep Flock of All
Kinds and Colors.
The thinking poultryraan realizes
that the male ls "half of the pen."
The chickens have one father in com
mon and may iiave separate mothers,
so the male's vigor and personality is
in every chick.
Get a purebred male. Stop this keep
ing a flock of all kinds and colors. Be
careful to choose a male of real merit,
bred with care and for a purpose.
Whichever of the two aims-eggs or
meat-is the best with you, select for
that purpose, but uever forget that a
well-bred cockerel, one bred from
meat-producing and egg-laying ances
try, will decidely improve the laying
quality of the pullets, even if you are
aiming and have chosen for the pur
pose of size.
?ATTENTION TO COLT'S FEET
Uneven Growth Will Often Result in
Misshappen Joints and Bones
Use Ra&p and Nippers.
The colt's feet require attention. An
uneven growth of the feet at this pe
[riod will often result in mishapen
ibones and joints that will prove to be
j permanent Injuries. If the colt will
let you hannie him ut all it is easy to
keep the feet correctly proportioned
with nippers and a rasp; practice and
observation will soon enable a man
:who has fair judgment to determine
j what trimming the feet of euch colt
As a general rule the feet should
be examined every six or eight weeks.
If the colt's owner can't look after
?this matter himself he should obtain
the services of someone who can, for
it may mean the difference of fifty
.or one hun Ired dollars in the vulue of
; the animai later in life.
?CHARCOAL GOOD FOR CHICKS
Given to Poultry as Corrective, Not
as Food, Says Expert of Kan
sas State College.
Charccal is given to poultry as a
; corrective, and not as a food, asserts
?R. M. Sherwood, acting head of the
i department of poultry husbandry In
?the Kansas State Agricultural college.
"In case of improper feeding It is
'well to give charcoal to absorb Intes
tinal gases," said Mr. Sherwood. "It
: is generally fed to growing chicks
I only, because of its high cost.
"When there Is a supply of cobs on
the farm, charcoal can be made from
them, and this would be cheap enough
to warrant feeding it to hens as well
CUTTING PEAS WITH MOWER
-Machines Run Better If Land ls
Smooth-Harrow Will Put Land
in Good condition.
Farmers should always remember
that In sowing peas they must be cut
with a mower.
Mowing machines run better If the
land ls smooth. By using a harrow on
the land, lt can easily be put In good
condition for the mower. In cutting
peas on rough land. It ls hard on the
driver, the mower and the stock.

The sisters looked at each other and

when her senses came back she was
outside somewhere in the snow. Then
she realized that a man was trying to

that her head cleared rapidly and she
tried to sit up.
