SHEEP RAISING IS PICTURED
Film Shows Treatment of Flock at
Culling Time in Fall and on to
Selling of Lambs.
.A motion picture film dealing with
sheep on the farm has recently been
completed by the film laboratories of
the United States department of agri
culture in co-operation with the bu
reau of animal industry. The film Is
now available for use by county
agents, county or state sheep-breed
ers' association, agricultural colleges,
and other department or co-operative
workers or agencies.
The film is in three sections and
leur reels. About 45 minutes is re
quired for the showing of the whole
The, subject treated in the first and
second reel is a year with the flock on
the farm, beginning In the fall at the
time that the ewe flock should be
culled prior to breerl'ng. and carrying
it on through until the lambs are sold.
Each seasonal practice is brought ouc
sind educational points are featured.
The third reel deals with the co-opera
tive marketing of wool and lambs, and
the fourth reel with the slaughtering
of a mutton sheep, dressing the car
cass, and then cutting it up for meat
MEAT SUPPLIES FOR FAMILY
Greater Portion of Pork Products Used
by Farmers Are Produced on.
Nearly two-thirds of the meat eaten
on the farm is pork, the average farm
consumption of pork being over 500
pounds per family. The greater por
tion of the pork products used by
farmers are produced on the homo
farm. A small number of pigs can
lie raised cheaply, says the United
- States department of agriculture.
Kitchen and garden wastes, and some
times dairy by-products, are available
for feed. The farmer usually kills
the hogs and dresses them on his own
place. The hog furnishes a good va
riety of meat and also lard. The
smoke house, a common improvement
on the farm, provides a convenient
way for curing pork.
SHEEP BUSINESS PROFITABLE
Study Being Made of Specialized
Raising With Complete Reliande
on Forage Crops.
Results of a farm sheep experiment
reported by the United States depart
ment of agriculture show clearly the
possibility of a profitable sheep-raising
business upon eastern lands. At the
-government farm, Beltsville, Md., a
study is being made of specialized in
tensive sheep raising with complete
reliance upon forage crops for sum
In 1910 a 30-acre area did not pro
duce forage enough to feed satisfac
torily 44 Southdown ewes and 33
lambs. This field is now capable of
furnishing sufliclent summer feed for
100 ewes with their lambs. The im
provement is due in part to the appll
cation of manures, lime, and phos
phates, but chiefly to the fact that legu
minous crops were largely used and
.all crops were fed upon the ground.
'Under the system followed forage
crops are seeded in rotation and the
sheep are allowed such frequent
changes of pasture as are necessary
to prevent troubles from parasites.

WEED OF FOREIGN MARKETS
New York Business Man Tells How in
His Opinion America May
Control Trade Marts.
"If the United States expects to ob

other world powers with which it has
to compete. Trained men are neces
sary in any line of business and for

training Is absolutely essential."
"I believe that the United States
merchant marine ls again to come into
Its own," continues the same broker
In the Washington Post, "but the finest
lot of merchandise on earth, coupled
with the greatest fleet or merchant ves

"All the large 'mercantile firms are
taking steps to train men specially for
each country in which they expect to
do business. The prospective salesman

that country, so that he can in a sense

He knows just what to do under given
conditions and ls of vast value to the

"The bureau of foreign and domes

the government should *go a step furth

The students should be taught every
possible fact regarding European, Asi

Tractor Which Walks.
A new type of traqtor that has re
cently been developed has a series of
legs and walks like a horse. There are
four crankshafts, each having a set of
four legs, giving the tractor sixteen
legs on which it walks. In addition
there are four wheels automatically
operated by tte tractor engine, so that
they can be lowered to the roadbed,
thus converting the machine Into a
motor truck. The feet are shod to con
form to the ground conditions.
It ls said that the tractor may bc
used to plow, seed, cultivate, harrow,
mow and harvest, nike, furnish power
for other machinery as a tractor and
power plant and also to act as a track

Love and charity had played I
portant parts in the career of Ma
Wallace, and he had entered into t
sentiments of the same with earne

Miss Wayne had become heiress to

wealth came to the ears of'Wallat
She and her young brother, Sidnt

obscure-how cou id be ever hope

fortune. He decided that It would.1

and try to forget her.
This in fact he never did, but i
was somewhat buoyed up hy his su

life and sought in kindly>deeds a cot

If he hud only known it, Estin
Wayne had come back to her nath
town hoping to find him there, an

sbe learned that he had left the plac

should* decide that he had never care

Ished her own dream of affection, the

married a man, Eris Danvers, wh
sought her only for her fortune, dh
sipated nearly half of it and left he
a widow at the end of a year.
Esther had gone through an exper:
ence that ages the soul, and the ol
home and old friends too had grow
distasteful to her. She removed t
the city where Sidney, then only te:
years of age, could receive the benefit
of a superior education. They mad
their home with a family who accom
modated a few chosen boarders. Th
son of the family, at table one evening
made a remark that suddenly opene<

in a strangely acute way.
"I've got the happiest man In th<
world for my boss, they tell mn,'
spoke the young man. "He is tin

house for five years and his name ii
Esther was startled and a flutter o?
emotion crossed her face, but she was
unobserved by those present. She was
eager to hear more.
"He's the friend of everybody in the
establishment and jolly as con be
always a word of cheer from the old
.bachelor, as they call him. One o?
the fellows at one desk told me that
Mr. Wallace was disappointed in love
years ago, and that he has never
looked at a woman since his first love
disappointed him. I just tell you this
because he doesn't act like the forlorn
pining lover with a broken heart. He
just pulled himself together and sought
a new line of Interest-being good to
others. They say that from the first
day he came to the store he faithfully
put aside exactly half of his earnings.
Every Saturday night he starts out to
spend this surplus, dresses up in the
most commonplace way, goes down in
to the slums and hunts for poor fami

sick, the weak, the unfortunate. Makes
a system and a business of lt. He has
compensated for the loss of the love
of one woman by cherishing that of
the whole world."
Esther managed to see Wallace sev

always at a distance. He had Improved

of Wallace were broken in upon by an
occurrence that distracted her. Sidney
Wayne did not return from school one
day, and no trace could be secured, of
him. The police were satisfied that
a band of city ruffians had abducted
and were holding him In captivity to
force his wealthy sister to ransom
Esther was heartsick with anxiety
and dread. She was mourning over
the new trouble that had come to her,
when one afternoon she heard welcome
tones in the hall below her room and
she rushed down stairs to fold her
lost brother in her loving arms.
And with him was Mark Wallace,
and soon Esther knew that through
his acquaintance with the poor and
lowly there had eventuated a clew to
the whereabouts of the kidnaped
"I have always shared my love with
you, Wallace," confessed Esther a
month later when reunion had brought
a mutual happy understanding. "Let

FISHr 1 IN BOYHOOD DAYS
Gloriouf re When Mother Kept
S' Praised the Five
The city man who was the country
boy of yesterday closes his eyes a few
minutes and lives over again a sum
mer afternoon of long ago, notes the
Milwaukee Journal. A day when his
little crowd, equipped with enough
worms to feed a school of fish, betook
itself to the pool where lt was annu
ally reported and fervently believed
the big bass were hiding.
They didn't get big bass. Bites came
slowly, and those they landed were lit
tle sunfish. Is there anywhere In any
lake a muskie big enough to give him
as great a thrill as those little sun
fish? He was late to supper, but there
was supper kept for him. And mother
didn't scold. She was pleased as
punch, and told him to hurry and clean
the fish, and she would cook them.
And she did.
No other grown person praised his
catch. In all the world he and mother
alone recognized how worth while
those five little sunfish were. And yet
lt didn't seem wonderful that she
didn't ask him where ?he bass were.
That was what other people did.
It was a wonderful day, but as he
looks hack on lt, he sees that the won
derful thing was not the little string
of "boy's fish," hut the mother who
was so pleased that she stood over a
hot stove cooking them. How glad
she was to do lt. How happy she
would be If she could do lt again, to
day. Eut she lives too far away now.
We wonder if he remembers to write
and tell her of his ?discovery-his dis
covery that mother's heart was big
enough to make his little fish a splen
FOREST ON DRIFTING SANDS
Frenchman's Ingenuity Has Made of
Waste Place a Region of Fertil
ity and Usefulness.
In the southwest corner of France,
between the rivers Adour and Gar
onne, are long stretches of pine woods,
green and cool. Where these pines
now stand was a barren waste In the
middle of the eighteenth century. Sun
and wind vied with each other In mak
ing the land drier and dustier. Over
the stormy bay of Biscay came winds
that set np great sand storms and
sometimes burled whole villages. But
at last there came along a man who
acknowledged fate only as something
to be. overcome. ' His name was Bre
montler and he was an Inspector of
roads. He began fencing In the des
ert. He built a fence and behind It
planted a' handful of broom seeds. Be
hind the broom seeds he put seeds of
the pine. The fence protected the
broom seeds and the broom grew.
Then the broom in its turn afforded
shelter to the delicate pine shoots.
Soon the pines spread and their tough
roots bound this sandy soil together.
The first step was accomplished. Then
canals were made to drain the wet
parts and carry water to the dry.
