Tho practice of dehorning cattle is
rapidly increasing, not only in thc west
but In some sections of tho middle and
eastern states The chief objection urged
against dehorning has been the cruelty of
the operation; a lesser one ls that it de
tracts from tho appearance of the animal.
Tho second objection remains, but Ibo
grcui majority of those who have prac
ticed dehorning contend thul it is no moro
painful, if as painful, ns other operations
generally practiced. However thia muy
be, il ls fairly safe to conclude that de
horning, carefully performed, ls not a dan
gc rous operation.
The arguments advanced In favor of de
horning ore: First, thc prevention of ter
rible accidents in handling vicious cattle,
especially bulls: second, that thc dehorned
cattle cnn \y> turned loose in .sheds and
stalls without fear of their injuring each
other, even if they aro moro or leas
The subject has received considerable
attention this Benson nt tho farmers' In
stitutes and clubs, and if reports of those
meetings may be relied upon tho farmers
nnd breeders who linvo experimented in
dehorning their cattlo almost with one ac
cord favor tho practice. From these and
other sources lt appears that the preferred

Doabto Run? fur 1'oultrr.'
Tho Importance of double runs for poul
try ls not appreciated by thc majority ol
amateurs wno try growing poultry on a
comparatively Braal! scale, and yet these
double runs aro of untold value. Tho ob
ject of tho doublo run is to supply the
birds with fresh (?round, and thus prevent
any tainting of it, so prolific a cuusc ot
disease is small yards.
Only one mn ut a time onght to bo oc
cupied by thc fowls, nnd thc other moy bo
profitably employed with growing vegeta
bles, which will bc found to thrive aston
ishingly in such a place. Ono not only
I"-;j tho profits of some quick growing
crops by this practice, bat tho soil hus at
the Kamo time been purified and brought
into good condition for tho poultry. If
each run ls thus alternated by fowls and
crops, say every four months, ihe diseases
socommou lu confined poultry runs will
I? few and far between.
The efficacy of this plan baa been
proven to tho writer's own satisfaction,
and is well worth a trial. There appears
no reason why farmers should not mako
poultry one of a series in a rotation of
crops, ns by this means the land occupied
by tho fowls is well manured, and before
being used again by the birds is pul ii id
by the crops grown thereon.
It may happen that the srmll poultry
keeper cannot give these double runs. In
that case a good plan would be to lay
down the one run he has in gravel, an that
eau bo more easily removed and re
newed than earth, and then it ls not so
readily contaminated by tho droppings as
