|ETi RiD OF THE H04
(By H. M. COTTRELL.)
Hog cholera is severe again in many
4arge districts. Get rid of the lice on
your hogs. Dr. A. T. Peters, a veteri
narian of national reputation, has had
a wide experience with hog cholera.
He says that there is much smaller
loss from cholera i. those herds that
are free from lice. When a hog is
lousy the lice make him unthrifty
and out of condition and he is easily
susceptible to disease. The weak,
lousy hog gets the cholera and lice
spread the disease from him to the
hogs that sleep with him.
Feed is high and is likely to be
higher. A lousy hog is unthrifty and
does not make the gains from his
feed that are made by hogs free from
lice. Many herds of young shotes are
not making money from their feed
because they are lousy. IUce retard
fattening and injure the health of
breeding sows. Get rid of the lice.
An easy way to get rid of Uce when
they are not too thick on hogs Is to
set a number of short posts in the
yard or field where the hogs run and
wrap these posts with old gunny
sacks. Once a week soak the sacks
with either crude oil or coal uil and
MANNER OF FASTENING WI.RE
Simplest, Easiest and Cheapest Way
Is by Encircling Post With Wire
of Smaller Size.
There are numerous methods of at
tachir.g wire fencing to concrete I
posts. Some makers place staples or 1
wire loops in the green concrete; oth
ers make holes in the posts. The
former method is n, t desirable be
cause the fastener cannot be located
exactly where the wire of the fencing
will ccme when the post is set In the 4
ground; then, too, the fastener will I
eventually rust or break off and will
thus injure the looks of the post, On
the other hand, holes through, the
pcsts weaken them and therefore this1
method is, in general, unsatisfactory.
The simplest, easiest, and cheapest
way of fastening a wire fence to a
concret,: post is by encircling the post
with a wire one size less than the
corresponding wire in the fence prop
er and by twisting this wire around
the strand of the fe':ce wire, and the
free eznd is then carried around the
post ad twisted on the other side to
the same wire. The latter method
is known as "the Western Union
twist." Either plan is good, but care
must be taken to draw the fastening
wire tight, or else stock trying to get
tirough the fence may loosen it.

machine oil mixed half and half. The
hog rubs against the post and the oil
kills the lice.
Make a -cement wallow or bath 10
by 10 feet and 16'inches .deep. Fill
this to a depth of 12 inches with water
and cover the water with coat of
crude oil. The hogs will bathe in this
and the oil will cover them and kill
the lice. Renew the oil and water as
necessary and every two weeks clean
out the bath with a shovel. Where
expense of cement cannot be afforded,
dig a hole the same size as for a
cement wallow and puddle it with
clay. Put in the water and crude oil.
Before this hole gets filthy dig anoth

It is hard to get rid of the lice
around the sheds and yards. All bed
ding should be hauled off or burned,
all trash cleaned up and fence, shed
and ground treated with oil or a coal

porary' sheds and put the hogs on

Among the many reports from ex

:hard grass and clover mixed averaged
,,460 pounds per acre in yield of hay, 1
Ls compared with 1,575 pounds from !
irchard grass alone. Timothy red-top,

An application -of one ton of burnt
