SAFEGUARD FLOCK BY
BURNING DEAD POULTRY
Accumulations of manure in the hen
house are objectionable upon grounds
of sanitation, but not more so than
dead poultry. How often have you seen
a dead chicken thrown into the road
or trappled into the barnyard manure?
The disposal of these dead bodies of
fers a problem for the poultryman, the
correct solving of which may in many
cases bebcome a very important mat
ter, say specialists of tne United States
Department of Agriculture. This is
especially true, of course, in cases of
death from contagious diseases, and
this includes a large proportion of
To throw a dead chicken on the ma
nure pile or into the road is to invite
the spread of disease. Burying is not
entirely satisfactory, because unless
the grave is dug deep the carcass may
be scratched up by dogH or other ani
mals. Furthermore, in the winter the
ground may be frozen. Therefore, spec
ialists declare the best way to dispose
of dead poultry is to burn the bodies.
Many town and city homes have gar
bage burners which may be used, but
where this is not available some poul
trymen having hot-water heating sys
tems burn the bodies in the furnace.
This can not be done In the summer,
though, so small crematories have
been built on some poultry plants.
Some of these are of concrete, the size
depending upon the number of birds
kept on the place, and others are ordi
nary Iron wood-burning stoves. A con
crete crematory will not be expensive,
and would pay for itself in safeguard
Ing the health of all the poultry.
WITH RED SPOTS
Small Spots Caused by Green Aphis
Need Special Spray, Says
Fruit growers are experiencing
much trouble this year from red spots
occurring on the apples. These little
red spots, similar to scale injury, are
caused by green aphis attacking the
apples. Weather conditions this sea
son have favored a heavier infestation
of green aphis than usual and special
control measures should be adopted,
warns E. G. Wood, extension horticul
ture specialist of the State College.
Growers in the Wenatchee valley
are controlling the green aphis by
combining a contact spray with the
cover sprays for the codling moth.
This combination is made by adding
three gallons of distillate oil emul
sion and one-half pint of nicotine
sulphate (Blackleaf 40) to each hun
dred gallon tank or codling moth
spray. The oil is first mixed with a
small quantity of water by stirring
up three gallons of the spray with t
gallon and a half or water. When
thoroughly mixed, two err three more
gallons of water are stirred in and
the mixture then put Into the spray
tank, where it will readily emulsify
or mix with the balance of the spray
In spraying, care should be taken
to hit the growing tips of the
branches where most of the aphis are
working. This mixture will also kill
the woolly aphis wnen forcefully
sprayed onto them. Where a formula
containing soap is used for aphis, a
separate spraying must be made aF
soap and arsenate ot read sprays will
not mi xtogether.
BROOD SOWS NEED WATCHING
Advice for Summer Time Is Very
Abundant pasture, good shade, a
sanitary wallow and plenty of clean,
pure- water should be provided for the
brood sow in hot weather. Little grain
will be needed by sows that are run
ning on clover or alfalfa pasture. Two
or three ears of corn per day should
be ample for the summer needs of
brood sows on good pasture, unless
some of the sows have become excess
ively thin following the suckling pe
If natural shade is not present in
the hog pasture, artificial shades must
be constructed at points where they
may receive the moat breeze. In the
hot weather o£ July or August a sani
tary wallow or bath located in the
shade will be of value in keeping down
the temperature of the sows. Keep
the sleeping quarters and shaded
places as free from dust as possible
by frequent cleaning or sprinkling
with crude oil. Never allow the sows
to become thirsty as a good supply of
clean water is most essential to bring
ing them through the hot weather suc
Sows which are to farrow fall lit

during the hot summer. If on blue
grass pasture which tends to become
hard and dry in late summer, preg
nant sows will require a larger grain
allowance. The sow must be fed well
enough to be in good enough physical
condition for farrowing. Younger sows
will profit from the addition of a small
amount of tankage in the ration,
where the only pasture is blue grass.
The grain ration for both young and
old pregnant sows should increase
somewhat as they approach farrowing

Farmers of Spokane county made a

More than 100 farmers attended the

Rattlers Run, Chester and Worley,
The committee appointed to confer
on the wage and threshing question
was as follows:
Henry Treede, Falrfield; W. D.
Walker, Waverly; Fred Pottraby, La

The meetings are held annually and

lir.st Saturday after the Fourth of July
to decide on a new wage schedule.
"The meeting was an important one.
as threshing machine men had waited
for the committee to fix the price of
threshing," said Mr. l'atton. "There
will be ample men in this section to ilo

for the county, many will use it."
As Others See It
Advertising and business are close
partners. They are responsively sym
pathetic. In the times of the years
ago advertising was good in periods
when business was good, and if there '
was a panicadvertising slumped. Now
there is less indication that business
affects advertising in as great a de- '
gree as advertising affects business.
In the old times, merchants for ex
ample, advertised in the local papers
liberally when business was high
spirits high, cash plentiful and when j
they "felt that they could afford to j
spend money with the newspapers." |
But that era has passed.
Business men put their first-rank
business judgment sense, skill into
-heir advertising campaigns; for on
these advertising campaigns depends
.he volume of their business. Compe
tition is sharp; if business is good they j
advertise to keep it so and to get their j
own share and a little more if possible
of what's doing in the trading line;
if business if "off" then they realize I
the absolute necessity for advertising ,
.or a number of good reasons: The j
people, they know, are then eagerly j
looking for the best places and the |
!>est prices; the business is not plenti
•"i*i enough to go around with two or
Ihree liberal helpings and they resort >
to attractive, intense, emphatic adver i
i-.inc. to get the largest possible pro
portion of what there Is in sight.
In the old times the business man
put advertising into the business sys
tem only when he thought the system
was strong enough t., stand it, nowa
days he feeds his business a regular
diet of advertising to keep its circula
tion normal, its strength vigorous, its
growth steady; he gives it the extr?
treatment when he finds that a tonic
or a stimulant is most required.
Business men are coming to the
same view of advertising as an ele
ment, a vital, everyday, regular steady
element in business.

MILK GOATS SHOULD
PRODUCE TWO QUARTS
About the first question that most
peopli' art concerning milk goats is,
"How much milk wilt they produce?"
This is, of course, a very Important
consideration, as the value of a do© Is
Htlmated largely by her milk produc
tion. Even if a doe is purebred, she is
of little value from the utility stand
point unless she is capable of giving
a good quantity of milk. Many persons
in purchasing purebred or even grade
goats have been disappointed to find
that Hie milk could be measured in
pints and not quarts or gallons as ex
A doe that produces 3 pints a day Is
considered only a fair milker, while
the production of 2 quarts is good, and
the production of 3 quarts is consid
ered excellent, provided the lactation
is maintained for from 7 to 10 months,
say specialists of the United States
Department of Agriculture. There Is
probably no better way to treat this
matter than to state that good does
should produce from 8 to 15 times
their weight in milk in a lactatior.
period. It is stated by German writers
that many goats yield 10 times their
body weight of milk annually, and ex
ceptional animals as much as 18 times
Goats' milk can be utilized for the
same purposes as cows' milk, although
for some it is not nearly so well suited.
For general use, suchas for drinking,
cooking, and in tea and coffee, the
milk lias proved very satisfactory.
Practically all publications dealing
with milk goats attribute considerable
importance to the use of the milk for
infants and invalids.

Exports of all the other leading domestic grains (corn, oats, bar
