Modern Buildings Are Essential
DAIRY BARN IS PARAMOUNT

By WILLIAM'A. RADFORD.
Mr. WilliafubJect8advicd A. Radfor wil answer
.Many people like to talk about the
"good old dujs." "It sure was great
when"and so it go"*
You know what no have In mind:
the backsliding hiwnes man who re
luses to lecognuo progress and oes
aloiiK iii lus old tt,iv, berating modern
ideas and longing for the "good old
tinics." Well, 1m is out of luck, and
tome day may awaken to the fact
\nd so it is with (he farmer who puts
his back to improvements and flings
to the old "red barn" and all tliat goes
wiili it. He wonders "why bis neigh
bor, who has built a new barn with
all the latest labor-saving equipment,
gets so much tinio to spend in the
lields or out in the car, and keeps his
The farm of today is a big business
that requires a big mind to run It euc
essfully, 311st as the building business
requires alert men to make a success
of it. The two are inevitably linked,
for the building program on the mod
ern farm is one of its most important
In tliis building program the dairy
barn is of paramount importance.
Therein lies the source of real income,
if handled properly. Only contented
cows will turn out good milk and in
quantity. And to make for content-
ment, one must provide ventilation that
will furnish fresh airNand carry awny
(he foul, poisonous air that hangs like
heavy mist about the animal cliecr

dows so placed as to give the maxi
mum benefits at all hours and not just
during certain periods comfortable,
lean stalls and stanchions and drink
iug bowls next to the stalls, where the
cow can drink at will. The new (fairy
barn should be built as a workshop,
not merely a stable.
It is here that the building contrac
tor and farmer an get their heads
together and plan a barn that will be
mutually satisfactory and certainly the
proper place for the herd. Certain es
seatial features should be incorporat
ed in these plans to achieve what the
farmer wantsproduction: and what
the builder hopes to giveservice. In
ihe construction of the barn, cleanli
ness, cow comfort and health, conveni
ence and economy are factors to be
Naturally, the site is important. It
should be located on a sunny, well
drained slope, where surface water
will run away from the barn.
Next, the size is to be considered.
Ow mg to the development of standard
measurements in stalls, gutters and al
leys, this can be easily figured out.
jL,* liiose mot frequently used are 36
tt feet in width. TJiis provides plenty of
room to place the cows in two rows,
ficng in or out. The two-row ar
rangement permits better lighting and

Aside from the details involved ID
the building of walls and roof, of
which the plank frame is quite popu
lar, the floor is the most important fea
ture of the modern dairy barn. But
it might be well at this point to men
tion the placing of the barn with ref
erence to wind and sun. Because the
barn runs from the warm sontlh to the
cold northwest, construction should, Ue
arranged to meet conditions and the
vsueccs&ul builder knows that dead air
spaces will keep out cold air. But,
as was suggested, the big problem is
the floor. In the first place, to be sani
tary, it should be as near waterproof
as possible. Furthermore, it must be
easy to clean, durable and easy for
For all-around service Concrete has
been found very efficient for all except
the staljj, The coty cannot stand on
concrete very lonfc without getting
tired, nor can she. ve/y well lie on it
without risk to health. For that rea
son cork brick and creosoted block
arc used as flooring in the stall.
With the construction details fairly
ufider way, the big consideration Is
equipment The- progressive builder
ami farmer consider only the most ef
ficient labor-saving equipment. Why?
Because they waut to get the maxi
mum production with the help avail
able. And the fact that it is mighty
scarce is no secre*. The farmer who
owns that "old red barn" is continual
ly fletting about getting hired help.
"They're all going to the city," is bis
plaint. But the same complaint is not
heaid ou the modern farmbecause
the helj) find something lias been done
to make work a pleasure. They do
not break their backs shoveling litter
into a wheelbarrow and carting it from
the dairy barn. All they have to do
is load it Into the litter carrier and
it Is whisked away to the waiting .ma-
nure spreader outside the barn. And
likewise with the feed. It is carried
by feed carriers which can be stopped
in front of each stall.
Any equipment which causes a re
duction in labor expense is an asset
to the farm. Overhead carrier equip
ment takes care of that. Liberal track
age increases the general comfort and
convenience and insures the satisfac
tion of help which today is one of the
most Important problems of the farm
The purpose of any cow stall ls to
provide a secure yet convenient means
of tying the animal, which will at
the same time afforil the comfort am'
freedom necessary In the production
of large quantities of milk. Modern
stalls are constructed of tubing, which
give^ strength and rigidity and is sani
tary. The stanchion is firmly attached
to both top rail and concrete anchor,
but has sufficient play in all directions
to be at once .flexible, comfortable and
humane. The cow enjoys great free
dom, whether lying or standing, and
there is nothing to annoy her.
The drinking cup has been one or
the mofct popular labor-saving and
production-increasing pieces of equip
ment introduced in the dairy barn. A
continuous flow (of

Equipmentthat is the big secret
in a nutshell. It includes the barn
door hangers that make them slide so
easily, the truck that carries the milk
to the creamery. Every item on the
list is helping in that battle to keep
the boy on the farm, for after all. the
of the farm depends on tl.e
success of that idea. Without men

SEE SUICIDE NATIONAL PERIL
InfluentiaiJapanete Newspapers Exalt
(Christian Idea as to the Sacred
new of Life.
Suicide, which has always been
prevalent' in Japan, is, according to
the Japanese press, even more rife
than e\er since the financial crisis in
the Land of the Rising Sun, says the
Literary Digest iu a recent issue. The
Ooaka Mainichi, which sees peril to
the nation in the prevalence of self*
slaughter, acknowledges the excel
lences of the Christian view that sui
cide, instead of being merely an apol
ogy for failure, is a crime. Many sui
cides in Jo pan are due to the fact that
the Japanese'have "less attachment
to life than foreigners," and also to
the traditions of feudal times when
they belittled life.
The Osaka Mainichi says further:
"Deathmuch more suicidemeans
evasion of responslblity and
the notion that those who commit sui
cide have the keenest sense of respon
sibility is wrong. Suicide is the em
bodiment of egoism and irresponsibili
ty. One of the strong points of the
Christian people is their conviction
that to kill one's self is as criminal
as to kill others."
