! FOR VIGOR AND HEALTH OF A STALLION
Plenty of exercise, good ventilation,
flight, and proper care throughout the
:whole year are necessary for the vigor
?and health of a stallion, according to
jDr. \V. C. McCampbell, associate pro
Ifessor of animal husbandry in the Kan
isas State Agricultural college.
"Exercise tones the muscles, stimu
lates the circulation and digestion,
gives strength and vitality to every
tissue and every organ of the body.
"Good honest work is the best kind
?of exercise for stallions. Some owners
:find it practical to work them In pairs,
while others find it more satisfactory
when a stallion ls worked with a geld
ing or pregnant mare.
Use Care In Working.
"Utmost care ls necessary In work
ing stallions. They are big, strong
and' willing, but as usually soft and
fat from lack of exercise. Conse
quently they must not be given iiard
work at first. One should begin with
light work-only a few hours each
day-gradually increasing the work
:until the stallion is able to do dally a
?full day's work. A half day's work
;durlng the breeding season is benefi
"Aside from the economy resulting
through such work, the stallion will
'become stronger, more vigorous, more
itractable. easier to control, and more
.agreeable to handle, as well as a bet
"The proper amount of exercise
?given will make the question of feed
ing the stallion less troublesome. How
to feed Is more Important than what
to feed. The stallion should be fed
three times a day regida Hy and at the
same time each day. Plenty of pure,
clean, fresh water should lie provided.
The problem of proper ration will de
pend largely on the feeds available, on
those that are home grown, as well as
upon the consideration of the umount
Invested in the stallion. A good, whole
some ration should be selected and
enough should be fed to keep the stal
lion in fairly good flesh but not too
fat. ^During the breeding season one
should aim to keep him gaining a little

should be flooded with sunlight, and
properly ventilated. Sunlight and

PACKING MATERIAL IN SILO
Work ls Necessary to Obtain Full Ef
ficiency of Structure and Keep
In filling the silo with silage It
necessary to see that the material
carefully packed not only to obtn
the full efficiency of the structure, but
in order that the silage may be prop
erly kept. This has heretofore been
done by human labor, but recently
there has been invented an electric
roller which moves around on top
the pile as the building is filled and
packs the corn down hard and tight

A Inrge increase in the acreage of ?
!rye should take place in the cotton belt |
this year, the United States depart
tment of agriculture advises. There j
are mn ny good reasons for this recom- i
emendation. Rye will succeed on the
[sandy hinds of tho coastal plain where
?wheat is not adapted. It requires less i
[fertilizer than wheat. It is more hardy j
jthnn oats. Because of the heavy win
der-killing of oats last winter there will
?not be sufficient seed in many locali- j
?ties for the usual oat crop. Under this
'condition rye should be sown in place i
'of oats. Pye should be used to con- j
slderable extent this year to replace
?the leguminous winter cover crops, es
ipeclal?y crimson clover and hairy
?.vetch, the seed of which is very high
In price at, this time. Rye also will

Varieties Adapted to Region.
In Increasing the acreage of rye In
,the southern part of the cotton belt
.care must be taken to secure a vari
ety that ls adapted to conditions that
exist there. Varieties adapted to the
.northern states or even varieties adapt
'ed to the northern part of the cot
ton belt are not desirable for
?.sowing in the coastal plain. There
?are, however, strains of rye grown
'locally and known by several local
'names, such as South Georgia rye, and
Florida black-seeded rye, which are
well adapted in the coastal plain. The
tAbruzzes variety grown very generally
In the cotton belt ls also an excellent
sort for tho coastal plain. Tho Abruz
zes, on account of its rapid and vigor
ous growth, is very valuable for cover
crop purposes in addition to its value
ns n grain crop. The Abruzzes, in
addition to being adapted to the coast
al plain, is also adapted to conditions
anywhere In the cotton belt.
Co-operate on Seed Supply.
Seed varieties suited to the south
ern hnlf of the cotton belt ls not suffi*
jdent this year for the acreage that
should be sown: All of the rye grain
produced of suitable varieties, there
fore, should be reserved for seed in or
'der that a very large acreage may be
sown this fall in the sandy lands of the
coastal plain. Those who have seed
are urged to supply It to their neigh
bors for sowing only, at reasonable
prices and if there is any excess to
notify their experiment station or the
department of agriculture, giving
amount and price of seed on hand.
HOT WEATHER HURTS HORSES
Animals Subjected to Continuous Hard
Work Are Often Overcome
How to Treat Them.
In hot wen thor when horses are sub
jected to continuous hard work and
exposure to the sun. they often become
overheated and lose consciousness,
often falling. In conditions of this
kind the animal Is not excited ns ls
the case In n condition of fits, where
there is excitement.
The breathing is slow, the pulse ls
lessened in frequency and lacks dis
tinctness, and with this comes a short
ening character of respiration.
Remove harness and place the ani
mal in a cool place. Cold water ap
plied to the head, or cracked ice on the
head and poll, keeping the head ele
vated, will help. Offer n small
amount of cold water as a drink.
Three or five ounces of whisky may
bc given in cold water. Rub the ani
mal with cloths soaked In cold water.
Then rub whisky, If available, leaving
the skin dry.
SILO FURNISHES CHEAP FEED
So Satisfactory That Mississippi Ex
pert Would Not Attempt to Get
Along Without One.
(By PROF. J. S. MOORE. Mississippi Ag
We are using silage principally- for
dalry and beef cattle. It ls so satis
factory that we would dislike very
much to attempt raising cattle with
out a silo. It furnishes us the cheap
est feed, with the exception of pas
turage, that we have on the farm. The
silage keeps perfectly and the stock
are very fond of lt. Corn Is the prin
cipal crop grown for silage, although
we have used sorghum, soy beans,
cowpeas, alfalfa and Johnson grass.
MAKE APPLICATION OF LIME
Best to Do the Work Just Ahead of
Tilled Crop Such as Corn-Needs
of Different Soils.
Lime Is best applied just ahead of a
tilled crop such as corn. Clay soil
needs larger applications of lime thnn
does sandy soil. Wet soil needs larger
applications of lime than does well
drained soil. Soils rich in organic mat
ter need more lime than do sandy soils.
PASSION THAT MAKES THIEVES
Emerson's Declaration Concerning
Book Collectors Would Seem to
Have Been Amply Justified.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once declared
that book-collectors wore all thieves.
"The passion of classification masters
the mind and makes rogues of honest
men." The case of a professor of the
ology in the University of Eeriin, who
had just been convicted of stealing
books from the university, reminds a
writer In the Boston Transcript of Em
erson's saying and of the following in
"W. S. Shaw, the founder of the Bos
ton Athenaeum, used to steal from the
private libraries of his friends any
books he wanted to make his darling
Athenaeum complete. Collectors of
shells steal 'ornnglas' from the Grln
nells' mantelpiece and Mrs. Coffin's
house at Slasconset. Mellish Moore
told me that the books stolen from the
Boston Athenaeum are mostly from
the theological department, so that
they are forced to keep those locked
up. But the books most often taken
are patent reports, by lawyers." Pro
fessional and collecting morals must
have im'proved since Emerson wrote
those words In his Journal in the fifties ;
he goes on and adds: "But even in
comparatively late days I have seen
some queer instances of collecting zeal
-as, for example, this: A couple of
respectable Boston business men, one
of whom collected weapons, visited a
very swell house in Rhode Island once
in the absence of the family; they
were admitted by the aged caretaker;
while in the drawing-room, one of
these reputable gentlemen engaged the
old custodian in conversation while the
other slipped under his coat the au
thentic tomahawk of a neted Indian
chief-and got away with lt. And the
queerest part of the matter was that
the collector used to boast of the
achievement when exhibiting the toma
hawk as an item of his treasures.' "
LIGHTENS BURDEN OF GRIEF
Hard to Overestimate th? Influence of
a Smiling Face on Those
It would be impossible to deny that
love and sympathy possess a great
influence over the whole course of
our lives. How many, let the reader
ask himself or herself, are dally drift
ing astray for the want of these Ar
rales? The thought of having no one
to care for them, no one to listen to
their plans with a word of encourage
ment or sympathy in their failures; [
no one to soothe or heal bodily suf
ferings, or to whisper a word of com
fort when bowed down in sorrow, has
caused many hearts to fill with dark
ness and despair. The road to pro
mote love and sympathy is open to
all, there are no barred gates to pre- .
vent an entry, no one ready to prose
cute for trespassing; all are free to
enter. Its best visible and invisible
advertisement is a smiling face and
a kind heart. As the sunshine is to
the flowers, so ls the influence of the
face which meets you with a smile;
as the rain moistens the parched
ground and brings forth the fruit of
the earth, equally so is the burden of
invisible grief lightened by the help
of a gentle heart.
For Lovers of Sardonix.
If you have nn eye open for a good
sardonix cameo you will be pretty
sure, sooner or later, to come across
one that will make you glad. There
are many imitations of sardonix and
it ought to be part of your search to j
make sure that you know the real from !
imitation. Often you can come across
a good piece in a collection of old
jewelry that is being sold because the
owners do not appreciate Its intrinsic j
artistic value. Sometimes-especially
If you travel in out-of-the-way corners j
of the globe-you may come across a -!
good piece in a little pawn shop. Per
haps in your own family, stowed away j
in the bottom box or jewel case with
various articles of adornment of an
other generation and another taste, j
you may be able to find the precious
cameo in sardonix you are looking for.
As a usual thing the old settings are
the best, though if the cameo needs
a new setting any good jeweler will !
put the right sort of frame or setting
on your piece.-Exchange. :
What's the Answer?
A movie actress said at a Bar Har
"A girl can't dress in less than nine
ty minutes-and a ninety-minute toilet
is only an ordinary one at that. A real
toilet, which includes a hair-waving,
manicuring, and massage, requires
"The less a girl puts on the longer
it takes her to do it. Girls never wore
as little as they do today, and never
was it necessary to be as careful and
thorough about one's dressing.
"Some men grumble because a girl
takes so long to dress, but I say to
" 'Would you rather wait for an at
tractive girl or have an unattractive
girl wait for you?' "
Her Immediate Needs.
The other day a ludy was knocked
down In Regent street by a horse, but
happily escaped with a few scratches.
A' gentleman rescued her and said : j
"Can I get you anything?"
She (much out of breath and gasp

you kindly get me-"
She-"No-not drink-some safety
pins. I feel I'm falling all to pieces."
