Anecdote of Sheridan.
When Richard 1 riusley Sheridan
vas in distress in early life one of
us recourses was that of writing for
be fugitive publica.ions of the day.
a which he was materially assisted
y his wife, and many years after his
ntrance into the sphere of politics he
was heard to say that "if be had stuck
o law lie believed he should have
lone as much as his friend Tom Ers
:ine: but." continued he. "I had no
ime for such studies.
-Mrs. Sheridan and myself were
>ften obliged to keep writing for our
laily leg or shoulder of mutton: other
rise we should have had no dinner."
)ne of his friends, with whom he con
'ersed thus. wittily replied. "TheD I
lerceive it was a joint concern."
Paraguay's "Spider Lace."
Missionaries in Paraguay more than

lay the art has greatly developed, and
a certain of the towns lacemaking is

EASURING HAY IN STACK V
Reply to Andrew Wright, Sidewood,
Sask.: "Will you please send me a
formula fr measuring hay in th6
For obtaining the number of tons
of hay in a stack, the first step is to
measure the width and length with a
tape line, and then what is known as
the overthrow, that Is, pass a tape
line from the bottom of the stack on
one side over to the bottom on the
other side and divide this measure
ment which is called the overthrow
by three, then multiply the length by
the width, and this by one-third of
the overthrow-this gives you the
number of cubic feet in the stack. Of
course, if the stack is different
widths or different heights you will
have to take the measurements in
several places and obtain the average
of these by adding them together and
dividing by the number of measure
The number of cubic feet of hay
per ton varies considerably with the
length of time that it has been staci ed.
With newly stacked hay it will take
about 500 cubic feet to equal a ton.
If it has been stacked for two to
three months, from 350 to 400 cubic
feet will equal a ton. After you have
obtained the number of cubic feet In
the stack, divide by the number of
cubic feet in a ton, taking Into con
sideration the length of time that the
hay has been stacked.
SAVE THE FODDER
Although it is too late in the season
to consider doing anything with the
corn for ensilage purposes we should
not overlook the fact that to save the
fodder which we have already cut is
not only our duty but is very impor
tant from the standpoint of having
sufficient feed for our livestock dur
[g the winter months.
Of the many ways to save the corn
crop the use.of the silo is perhaps the
best, and yet only,% few of the farmers
In the corn belt have taken advantage
Af this means of saving the corn crop
this season and we should begin
right now to investigate the silo
problem so that we can erect
mne next year. The silo not only
saves 30 to 40 per cent of the corn's
nutrition that would otherwise be
lost, but it affords a green and suffi
cient feed during the winter months.
Crop reports sent out by the- govern- _
sent show that the farm value of
bay as quoted October 1st, is some
what less than it -was October 1st,
911, but yet' it is higher by a con
siderable amount than usual. In other
words this indicates that the amount
,f rough feed available throughout
the country is less than normal and
for this reason we should - put forth
extra efforts to save all the fodder and
)ther rough feed we have as it will
come in mighty handy before spring.
When we consider the increased farm
alue of hay and the fact that if
fodder is -left standing in the field
from 25 to 40 per cent of its feeding
ralue is lost we will realize how Im
portant it is to form our plans now to
save this fodder in the best possible
Perhaps you have not done so, brt
rou have seen your neighbors lea- "
the corn fodder in the fields durie
the winter months and haul it in de'
after day as it was required. This is
bad practice, to say the least, and we
hope that no reader of the Servic'e
Bureau will be found guilty of th~s
practice this season. Late fall rains
:oupled with occasional sleet or snow
storms not only waste a considerable
amount of the fodder but make it
axtremely difficult to handle if left in
the field. Fodder left exposed in this
nanner loses its feeding value through
the loss of protein caused by the .
action of the elements and by the
wasting of leaves due to handling.
The next best practice is to stack
bhe fodder as soon as the corn is
picked. It Is a good Idea- to locate _
:ho stack somewhere convenient to
he feeding rack or on the south side
f a grove where the fodder can be
ed during the cold winter mornings
by scattering It on the ground where ~
he animals will be protected from
he cold northwest winds..
This brings us to the subjiect of
shredding fodder, which is the most
mportant and by far the best way of
saving a fodder crop. The husker and
shredder now in common use cuts the ~
stalks in longitudinal sections,--into
small bits which puts It in - a much
nore palatable form. It has been
round that live stock will eat much
nore of the stalk when shredded than
when fed whole. The machine used
or this purpose will deliver the corn
n a husked condition. The cost of
hredding varies, of course, in differ
mt localities, but figuring the aver
ige cost of husking corn and storing g'
,t, the expense of shredding Is prac- g
ically the same. Then you will not
suly get the corn husked and stored
but you will have your fodder in a
onvienient form for storing and feed
.ng. It is a good plan to store the "
shredded fodder in the hay. mow or in
some place where it can be covered.
[f it is impossible for you to do this,
stack the shredded fodder close to
where you Intend to feed it. This -
will not only save labor, but will re
luce losses in handling and hauling
he shredded fodder. Another advan
age of shredding the fodder which is
ften overlooked is the convenience
handling the stable manure. It is
erhaps unnecessary to call the Corn
3elt farmers' attention to this fact.
Get us plan right now to at least
stack our fodder and if possible use a
