INCREASE IN DAIRY PROFITS
Breeders Find lt More Profitable to
Have Cows Freshen in Fall
More Milk Produced.
Because more milk would be pro
duced in the year and calves would be
raised cheaper, formers find it most
profitable to have their cows freshen
in the fall months. Cows bred now will
drop calves by early fall.
The cow gives a large flow of milk
at the beginning of the period of lac
tation. In the spring the milk yield,
which gradually falls off, is suddenly
increased when the cow is turned ou
Calves born in the fall need mainly
milk and eat li*-'". grain during the
period of winter ceding. When spring
comes they are ready to be turned on
pasture. Spring calves consume milk
and grain during the cheap pasture
b'oason and require the same high
priced feeds during the following win
ter, when they are older and thus eat
more. The fall-born calf at the same
age needs only pasture.
At the Ohio experiment station
some calves born in the fall were
raised for about $5 less than others i
born in the spring. Under average
farm conditions this difference would
be fed to fall-born calves on pasture,
while those at the station were given
grain because of a shortage of pasture, j
SKIM MILK FOR DAIRY CALVES
Found to Be Nearly Equal in Value to
Whole Milk tn Experiment at
North Dakota Station.
In feeding the dairy calf, the aim is
to cut down the period of whole milk
feeding. At the North Dakota ex
periment station, two lots of four
calves each were fed as follows: Whole
milk first three weeks both lots. From
then on lot A was fed one-half whole
mijk and one-half skim milk till six
months old. Lot B, after three weeks
old. was fed skim milk with flaxseed.
Just "uough flax was added to supply
as much fat as was given the calves in
lot A in their whole milk. Each calf

was given two gallons of milk a day.
Thy whole milk calves made the best
gains the first three months but during
the next three months the skim milk
calves nearly caught up. the four lack
ing hut 15 pounds of weighing as much
as the whole milk calves, and several
expert cattlemen who examined the
two lots pronounced the calves in lot
E in as thrifty a condition as those in
lot A. The saving in using skim milk
and flax in place of the whole milk
amounted to $10 per calf for the six
month period. The grain and hay cost
the same for both lots.
NO CURE YET FOR ABORTION
Rare Opportunity Offered Proprietary
Remedy Sharks-Handle the
? (By GEORGE H. GLOVER. Colorado Ag
ricultural College. Fort Collins. Colo.)
The proprietary remedy sharks
have found in contagious abortion a
rare opportunity. Beyond the appro
priate handling of the herd and dis
infection there ls nothing to offer at
.this time. The following brief state
ment is found in a recent United States
deportment of agriculture folder: "It
should be understood that no effective
cure for contagious abortion has yet
been found. Do not depend on drugs
and proprietary remedies."
CLEAN MILK WINNING FIGHT

Clean milk ls winning Its fight slow

It is a good dalry that will score
75 per cent on the government score j

than certified milk is the milk the suck

By REV. JAMES M. GRAY, D. D.
Dean of Moody Bible Institute,
TEXT-Restore unto me the joy of thy
salvation; and uphold me with thy free
This is one of the best-known and
most highly praised Psalms of David,
which one has
called, "the mold
or experience of a
sinning saint who
comes back to God
in full communion
David, lt must
b e remembered, j
was a man nt one
time in full com
munion with God,
even though he
so greatly sinned,
as this Psalm in
a sudden and
he committed the
gross sin of adultery, and then even
tried to cover over some of the effects
of it by being accessory to the sin of
murder. Nevertheless, and because he
did really know God, his conviction of
sin in the premises nearly broke his
heart. His cry of repentance and ap
peal for mercy are recorded in this
Psalm, whose wail of sorrow and sub
sequent shout of joy have been heard
through all the ages bringing instruc
tion and comfort to many unother sin
It is for this reason so instructive
for us to observe how David returned
to God. First of all, he clearly and
definitely judged his own sin before
God. This is expressed in the first six
verses of the Psalm where he cries out
for mercy, acknowledging his guilt and
pleading for a thorough cleansing from
Forgiveness and Cleansing.
In the next division of the Psalm we
see forgiveness and cleansing accord
ed him and secured on his part by
faith in the atoning blood. This Is
expressed in verses 7-10, in the sym
bolism of the hyssop, in the washing
of his soul until it is whiter than snow,
in the blotting out of his iniquity, and
in the creation within him of a clean
We now see the restored one filled
with the Spirit of God, in verses 11-17.
He is filled with' the joy of salvation ;
he is filled with power to teach trans
gressors and convert sinners; he ls
filled with the spirit of service and
with the spirit of worship as indicated
in his overflowing praise, and the pre
sentation unto God of the sacrifice of
a broken spirit and a contrite heart.
Finally he ls seen in fellowship with
God and interested now, not so much
in things concerning himself, as In the
things that concern God. His cry is,
"Do good in thy good pleasure unto
Zion ; build thou the walls of Jeru
The Same Truth in the New Testament
One finds all the more encourage
aient to urge this because th? same
truth, only put in another way, is set
before us again in thc New Testa
ment. You will find it in the First
Epistle of John, chapter I, verse 9,
where, addressing Christian believers,
he says. "If wc confess our sins, He
(1. e. God), is faithful and just to for
give us our sins, and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness."
Because a man is saved by God's
grace through faith in Christ, 1. e.,
because he is a true Christian believ
er, is not to say thut he will never
again commit a sin against God. It is
indeed his privilege, through the power
of God's spirit dwelling within him, to
continually live a life of victory over
sin. and yet. like David, he may fall.
Under such circumstances, what is
he to do? Has he lost out again?
Has he utterly fallen never to be re
stored any more? Has Christ's sac
rifice forever lost its efficacy for him?
No, thank God, Christ, as his high
priest in heaven, ever liveth to make
intercession for him. And now, like
David again, it is for him to judge
his sin before God, for that is really
the meaning of the word, "confess."
Let him do this, and he will find God
"faithful and just to forgive" him.
"Faithful" to his promise that means,
and "just" because Jesus Christ has
paid the penalty of his sin.
"Merciful and Just"
That word "just" is full of strength
and comfort for us. God is not only
"merciful" in forgiving the man who
comes to him through Christ but he la
"just" in doing so. He is "Just" be
cause that mun's sins have already
been atoned for on the cross, and lt
would be unjust to Ignore that great
fact and to cast the man away.
This Is a lesson for Christian back
sliders, and alas! there are many of
them In the church. Some of them
would gladly return to the father's
house, but they are timid and fearful
and so discouraged. But let them take
heart again, for God loves and yearns
over them. The story of the prodigal
son In Luke 15 was meant for them.
That kwhlch he did Insured a loving
welcome for him in his old home, and
so let them follow his example as out
lined in the language of Psalm 51 and
I John 1:9. They also will be met In
the same way, nnd know what It Is to
have the old Joy of their salvation re
stored unto them, because by grace
they will be cleansed from all unright
CITY SHOULD KNOW ITSELF
One That Has All Necessary Infor
mation at Fingers' End Makes
Impression Upon Inquirer.
There are many ways In which a
central organization can be of service
to a city in industrial development.
An industrial commissioner, a man of
vision and Intelligence, with experience
in tho problems that confront manu
facturers, can make a survey of a city
with reference to industrial advantages
and have them ready for every in
The prospective manufacturer likes
to do business with a city that knows
itself, just as the individual likes to
trade with the man that knows his
stock. There are so many details that
enter into Industry, so m:iny points of
information about location, switching
and traffic facilities, raw materials, and
related industries, that it requires ex
haustive study of the whole field to
make a creditable presentation of the
city's advantages to the inquirer from
the outside. The city that has all these
facts at its fingers' end, and can pre
sent them convincingly, is in better po
sition than the one where only a smat
tering of essential facts are known.
The importance of a careful survey
of related manufacturing groups
should not be underestimated. Now
more than ever before the manufuc-*
turer looks for a place where his un
finished material cnn be delivered In
any volume on short notice and at a
minimum of cost. Or it may be that
he wants a city which has developed a
line related to his own, so that he can
get the benefit of its prestige In that
line. Here, again, we see the import
ance of knowing our city and its in
dustrial possibilities thoroughly, and
that is the function of the industrial
department of a chamber of commerce.
BETTER CITY AN INVESTMENT
Improvements in Streets and Buildings
Pay Returns Just as in Any
Mr. MacFarland, president of the
American Civic association, takes the
practical business view when he says
that city betterments are nothing less
than paying investments. The streets
belong to the people. Their widening,
or the building of new ones to accom
modate increasing traffic, ls simply a
business expansion that will pay a re
turn as does any private business up
on new capital put into it.
The same thing is true of housing.
No city is rich enough to afford hous
ing conditions that mitigate against
the welfare of any part of Its popula
tion, says the Kansas Ci cy Star. The
man of small means, ns Mr. MacFar
land says-the man who must have a
low rental-is the basis of industrial
prosperity. Low rental dwellings are
necessary, but it docs not follow that
low rental dwellings should be lacking
In the sanitary conveniences that are
essential to public health. The owner
of rental dwellings who neglects to
maintain them In proper condition is
interfering with the city's business and
prosperity. The city's business de
mands laws regulating housing in con
formity with the best interests of that
business, and those laws should be rig
Small Suburban Lot Best.
The ideal size for n suburban lot,
if you do not keep a man or a horse,
is about one-sixth of an acre-say, 50
by 150 feet. This is all that the owner
can keep in apple-pie order, provided
the place bas plenty of vegetables and
flowers. This assumes that the family
is willing to spend $25 a year for out
side labor, fertilizers, seeds, bulbs,
etc. It also assumes that the wife Is
willing to spend un hour a day in the
garden and is not ashamed to be seen
raking, planting and dofug everything
except the hard labor.
Those who move from the city to
the country will make a great mistake
if, under such conditions, they attempt
more than this. Gardening Is an ex
pensive business and one might as well
recognize the limitations of the game.
Brick Porch Improves Old House.
The transformation a broad porch
of nice-looking face brick will bring
about on an old-style frame house is
wonderful. One sees in various places
along the streets houses on which such
changes hnve been made, and he ls
forced to admit that a great improve
ment hus resulted. While the effect
is so striking, the cost of such an ad
dition is not so great.
A combination of rough face brick
of reddish-brown coloring, white stone
cap and turned columns painted white,
with the steps and porch flour of con
crete, makes an attractive appearance.
A new brick porch would be H valuable
addition to many wooden houses of the
old type, which now boust of old-style
Value of Vegetable Garden.
A vegetable garden never hurt the
looks of any lot. It doesn't take a
dreamer to rave over a 30 by 40 foot
plat of growing lettuce, ripening to
matoes or sturdy potato plunts-not in
these days of high prices. Indeed, if a
piece of ground has demonstrated its
productiveness, it is more saleable than
ever when put on the market-Wis?
