papers Must Give Sub
stantial Aid to Cause of
Law and Order.
An urgent appeal to his fellow ed
itors to aid the enforcement of law
by refusing to publish sc-caiied
jokes and sneers on the eighteenth
amendment of the Federal Consti
tution was made by J. C. Brimble
com, editor of the Newton Graphic,
acting president of the National Ed
itorial Association, at the annual
convention of that organization,
meeting at Missoula, Mentana. Mr.
Brimblecom said in part:
"The n'ewspapei-s of this country,
particularly the newspapers which
go into the homes of our people,
have a great opportunity at the pres
ent time to give substantial aid to
the cause of law and order by re
fusing to publish any of the so-call
ed jokes and sneers on the Eighteen
th Amendment of the Constitution
of the United States. No matter
what you or I may say or think as
individuals, of merit or demer
its of prohibition, we must never for
get that it is the fundamental law
of the land and is entitled to as
much respect as the laws against
murder, theft or treason.
"For if you and I claim the priv
ilege of violating, with impunity, the
law regarding intoxicating liquors,
we must admit the rights of others
to violate any or all other laws re
garding which they may have simi
lar opinions. Such a condition spells
anarchy, nothing less. There must
be no discrimination in the enforce
ment of law and every published
joke or sneer regarding prohibition
adds just so much to the general
unrest which is altogether too prev
alent in this country."

Clemson College, Sept. 4.-Tests
at various experiment stations have
shown that it pays to feed hogs a
balanced ration, but the problem
which confronts most South Caro
lina farmers is how they can balance
rations most economically from feed
available. In other words, how can
hogs be fed to convert waste prod
ucts, by-products, forage, pastures,
and home grown gi'ain into meat to

Wins a Presidents Friendship.
Some years ago a boy of sixteen
years of age began attending ban
quets as a reporter; and, in order
that he might record the speeches
more clearly, he determined to be
a total abstainer. One night he at
tended a banquet at which the Pres
ident of the United States spoke;
and being a poor stenographer, he
asked the President if he would give
him a copy of his speech. The pres
ident said: Tell me, why did you
refuse wine at the dinner this even
ing?" The boy was surprised, but
gave his reason. The next day the
young reporter's paper had the only
verbatim report of the speech. And
there grew up a warm personal
friendship between the President
and the reporter, who were President
Hayes and Edward W. Bok, for
years editor of The Ladies' Home
Journal. And Mr. Bok says of the
incident: "It was a valuable friend
ship which that young reporter made
that evening. Other friendships were
constantly made possible to him
through it. And it is easy for me to
look back and trace my starting
point of acquaintance and opportun
ities to that unexpected friendship

Keeping Records of the Dairy 4
The successful business concern t
keeps records of all transactions. It
is sometimes difficult to apply ortho- <
dox business methods to many of the 1
operations on a farm, but exact rec- ]
ords cf breeding, feeding, and pro- 1
duction in dairying can be kept and i
must be kept if any great success is
to be obtained. 1
The first essential of such records 1
is that they sensible yet thorough 1
enough to give any desirable infor
mation. They should also "be final, ?'
that is, requiring no copying. '
The Milk Sheet-This is a sheet J
upon which the record of every milk
ing of a cow is kept. This sheet may ?
be for weekly or monthly periods, J
The amount of milk may be deter- ?'
mined by weighing on a milk scale
graduated in pounds and tenths. ?'
Such a scale can be purchased for a
bout $4. The milk sheets can be to- 1
talecl at the end of each week or 1
month, and from these totals the
yearly production ascertained. The '
value of the product from each cow
can be figured from the price obtain- 1
ed during each month of the year.
Feed Record-The amount of feed ;
given to each cow should be record- '<
ed. The grain should be weighed at :
each feeding and the roughage, such :
as silage and corn, occasionally. 1
From these records and the market ;
price of the feeds, the cost of each :
cow's feed is easily determined.
At the end of a year's production :
the records of each cow should be '
entered on a permanent sheet show
ing whether the product exhibits a
profit or loss above feed cost.
Breeding Records-The most im- ;
portant breeding i*ecord is that of :
service. For this we need a sheet
with place for name of cow, date of :
service, name of bull, date of calv
ing, sex, color, weight, and the dis- ?
position of calf.-Farm and Ranch.
Mothers and Babies
From the beginning of the habita
ble world, mothers and babies have
been; as long as creation endures, j
mothers and babies will be, yet it,
has taken a good many hundred I
years for us to realize that mothers j
and babies, between them, hold in !
their hands most of the great ques-l
tions of the day, and that when we 1
get ready to make the world really |
safe for these two classes of the pop- j
uiation, it will be a quite desirable j
place in which- to-, live.

into a sound, normal child; a sound, j
normal child ought to, and will if it ?
has a half a chance, grow into an ef- !
ficient desirable citizen. Reverse the J
reasoning, and you see that the time j
to begin to make efficient and use
ful men and women is before they j
are born. Oliver Wendell Holmes i
told us this a long time ago, and j
other great men have said the same i
thing a great .'nany time?. Yet we are [
only beginning to get some idea of !
the profundity of this truth.
In the United States we did not
bother much about mohers and ba
bies until after the twentieth cen
tury was well under way. Then some
few people began to get uneasy a
bout our loosing countless hundreds
of babies every year in the hot sum
mer months, and began to disturb
themselves about the quality of the
milk supply, and to talk and write
about the significance of a high in
fant mortality rate. But most of the
things that were done were in the
nature of humanitarian efforts to
relieve a present and intolerable con
dition. The idea of preventing un
necessary loss of life by preventing
illness was hardly yet born in the
public mind. The medieval notion
that mothers must enter* the valley
of the shadow alone and with little
hope, still prevailed long after the
leading physicians had reduced their
maternal deaths to one or two per
cent. It was not considered to be a
public disgrace to doom a baby to
life-long blindness from ophthalmia
neonatorum, even though Crede's
discovery of the efficiency of a cer
tain treatment had been public prop
erty for 40 years.
We are all slow and stupid, as well
as poor miserable sinners! but we
can learn. Whether we shall pro
tect our mothers and babies from
unnecessary death, illness and suf
fering by public or private means,
by national or state agencies, they
are bound hereafter to be somehow
protected. A return to the old era of
blindness and stupidity with its hid
eous cruelties and immeasurable
suffering, is unthinkable. Rather we
shall go on to demand more and bet
ter conditions for those with whom
all the hope of the world rests

Culling Pointers to Remember.
As the fall culling advances, keep
;hese points well in mind.
As the xanthophyll, the yellow col
oring matter, is absorbed through
;he ovaries, by the yolks of all eggs
produced, that portion deposited in
;he skin is reduced and bleaching
The vent bleaches fast. A bird
ivith a white or pink vent is laying,
aut it does not indicate how long it
las been laying.
The eye ring fades about as fast
is the vent, just a afew days. It
takes 12 to 15 days for ear lobes to
fade, in small Mediterranean breeds.
The beak loses color in si" fo
eight weeks, beginning at base and
gradually reaching the tip: The
shanks fade in three to four months,
beginning first in front, then the
sides, the back last.
The changes in pigmentation tell
what a hen has done, not what"she is
likely to do.
The changes in pigmentation are
actually the same in colored as in
white breeds, but are more difficult
to distinguish. .
The pigmentation is somewhat de
pendent upon the feed. Yellow corn
and green growing crops are rich in
xanthophyll, and the pigmentation
following full feeding of these ma
terials is strong. White or red corn
and other grains are deficient in xan
thophyll and persistent feeding? of
these, without green feed, will re
sult in bleaching, just as is the result
of heavy egg production. This '"has
been clearly demonstrated by tests
with cocks and cockerels.
The vent is large and moist in
good lacers, dry and puckered in
Comb and wattles are large and
full for breed and soft, to touch in
layers, small, shriveled, with whitish
scurf in non-producers.
Pelvic bones (lay bones) are thin
flexible and far apart in layers, and
thick, close and stiff in non-layers.
The layers back is broad and long,
the non-layer's is narrow and short.
Keep Dairy Utensils Clean
Cleanliness is godliness, especially in
the dairy business. All the sanitary
precautions taken for housing the
dairy herd will be of no avail if the
utensils used in handling the milk
are not kept clean, they must be
sterilized, not simply washed, to re
move i m mi rit.;.-? ? H*-4, -
_v. ni cleaning the dairy u
tensils. Other germs, those_ causing
milk to sour, for instance, may te
carried in the same way.
All vessels should first be thor
oughly rinsed with cold or warm wa
ter-not hot-water, to remove aT.
traces of milk, and then scalded with
boiling water. Sterilizing with live
steam is the best method of destroy
ing germs. Although this is noe prac
tical on all farms, every dairyman
can do the next best thing, which is
to boil all the vessels for a few min
utes. When removed from the boil
ing water, the vessels should be set
upside down in a clean pince free
from dust, so that they may drain
If vessels are first washed with
hot water, the albumen in the milk
coagulates, and sticks. As a result the
vessels will be sticky and greasy and
hard to clean-harborers of germs.
Frequently vessels, on being taken
from boiling water, are wiped with
a cloth teeming with millions of
germs. In this way more germs are
usually left than are removed. The
boiling of the vessels is not for the
purpose of removing dirt, but for de
stroying germs. Hence, after boiling,
the vessels should not be wiped, but
set to drain and dry.-Farm and
How You Can Keep Cool.
Dr. William H. Evans, former
Health commissioner of Chicago,
tells one of the secrets of keeping
cool, as publisher in the "How to
Keep Well" column of The Chicago
Tribune of July 17, as follows:
"Drink no alcoholic beverages of
any sort. In the first place drinking
alcoholic beverages sends an exces
sive amount of blood to the skin. The
skin is about the only tissue of the
body that can feel heat. The blood
is hot. Therefore drinking alcoholic
beverages makes you feel hotter
than you are.
"Comparing the summer of 1921
with that of 1916, we find that the
former was much hotter. On the
other hand, the deaths from heat in
Chicago during 1921 were 26 as
compared with 535 in 1916.
"Most cases of sunstroke were
cases of beerstroke, as this column
has contended for years."
