OBSERVATIONS WORTHY OFNOTli
IN RURAL AFFAIRS,
Directions for the Shoeing of Farm Horses
and Mules When and How Colts' Feet
Should Be Treated Advantages or the
Flat Shoe Without Calks.
The conditions on the farm are so dif
ferent from what they are in the cities
that the subject of the care and shoeing
of the feet of farm horses demands a
place and study of itself. Although it
is a fact that the character of the werk
on the farm, the soft ground on -which
the horses have to tread, aud the free
dom from accidents ought to give farm
horst8 almost an immunity from lament-as,
yet it is true that a considerable
percentage of them are either lame or
suffer from more or less deformity of
the feet or limbs. Much of this may be
unavoidable, but there is a wide margin
which is duo to improper treatment or
neglect of the feet. Professor 11. R.
Dinwiddie gives the following hints and
directions on the subject which we re
print for the ltenefit of our readers from
the Rural New Yorker.
FIO. 1 CONCAVE SIDK OF IH.iRSE SHOE.
Colts until they are put to work re
quire no shix. bnt their feet must be oc
casionally attended to. It sometimes
happens that when pastured on soft
ground the wear of the ground surftice of
the hoof is disproportional to the growth,
and this occurs chietly at the heels, where
(he natural slope of the wall is more
neurly perpendicular, and a tendency to
conn action is thereby induced. If neg
lected this is likely to lead to permanent
contraction or deformity of the hoof.
The remedy consists in removing tho ex
cess of growth at the heels with a knife
and restoring the hoof to its proper pro
portions. The opposite condition does not often
occur in unshod colts, tho growth at tho
toe by ita direction in reference to tho
ground tending rather to spread out
ward and lead to vertical cracks or
fissures. To prevent the extension of
theso to the soft tissues above it is nec
essary to trim off the superabundance
occasionally either with tho knife or
chisel. These abnormal conditions are
most common in the fore feet. When
the colt is put to work on the farm it Is
customary to leave the feet unshod for
some time, and unless the gronnd is
hard and stony this practice has advan
tages. After a little experience in work
the fore feet should be shod, while the
hind feet iu ordinary soil may be left
bare during the summer. I have never
seen any evil results from this except
when the colt was used on graveled
roads. In this case shoeing all around is
FIO. 2 FLAT SIDE OF HORSE SHCE.
I have no hesitation in pronoucing in
favor of the flat shoe without calks on
heel or toe, concave on the ground sur
face and fiat on the surface which con
tracts the sole, as shown at Figs. 1 and 2.
Wliatever difference of opinion there
may bo about the use of this kind of
shoe in city work there is no room for
doubt as to its advantages when worn
by the farm horse. If much work on
mud roads is to le performed shoes
should also be pnton the hind feet.
Here there is less objection to the use of
shoes with moderate calks, although lit
tle can bo said in their favor. The shoes
should bo readjusted and the feet
brought to their proper proportions at
least once in every five or six weeks.
The feet should be regularly cleaned out
with the hook as a part of the horse's
Cream from Many I'hiis.
Always handle the butter with wooden
hands; let your own hands come no
nearer the butter than the handles of
Make your butter attractive when you
send it to market. Spend a dollar for
parchment paper. Yes, a dollar in these
hard timps, for yon will get it back again
if yon soil in open market on account of
tho clean aud attractive appearance it
gives the butter; and if you have private
customers you will certainly get it back,
says National Stockman.
California Fmit Grower suggests, if
you use ice in your creamery and not
running witter, and have trouble on ac
count of the water becoming ford, to try
a handful of salt in the water.
Professor E. F. Ladd said, at the last
meeting of the New York State Dairy
men's association, that taking the results
of the dairy conference of last year, he
finds that in some cases less than thir
teen pounds of milk were required to
produce a pound of butter; at other con
ferences as high as thirty-two or thirty
three pounds were required.
H. P. Hopkins, of New York, avers
that every time he churns unripe cream
he losea. Ho says: "When cream is a
trifle acid it is fanfficiently ripened. I
prefer a concussiou churn to the friction
churn. White specks in butter come
from coagulation of the milk, which set
tles to the bottom of the cans. They
should be washed out properly."
What Doai n Mean
"100 doses one dollar" means simply
'bat Hood's Sarsaparills is tbe most eco
nomical medicine to bay, because it gives
more for, the money than any other prep
aration.. Each bottle contains 100 doses
and will average to last a month, while
other preparations taken according to
directions are gone in a week. There
fore, be sure to get Hood's Sarsaparilla,
tbe best blood purifier.

It Consumption Incurable
Read the following: Mr. C. II. Mor
ris, Newark, Ark., says: "Was down
with Abscess of Lungs, and friends and
physicians pronounced me an Incurable
Consumptive. Began taking Dr. King's
New Discovery for Consumption, sm
now on my third bottle, and able to over
see the work on my farm. It is tbe finest
medicine ever made."
Jesse Middleware Decatur, Ohio, says:
"Had it not been for Dr. King's New
Discovery for Consumption I would bave
died of lung troubles. Was given up by
doctors. Am now in best of health."
Try it. 8ample bottles free at Ilartz &
Bahnsen's drug store.
THK VERDICT UNANIMOUS.
W. D. Suit, druggist, Bippus, Ind.,
testifies: 'I can recommend Electric
Bitters as the very best remedy. Every
bottle sold has given relief in every case.
One man took sis bottles, and was cured
of rheumatism of ten years' standing."
Abraham Hare, druggist, Bellville, Ohio,
affirms: "The best selling medicine I
have ever handled in my twenty years'
experience, is Electric Bitters." Thous
ands of others have added their testimo
ny, so that the verdict is unanimous that
Electric Bitters do cure all diseases of
the liver, kidneys or blood. Only a half
