COMFORT IN STALL FOR COW
Distinguishing Feature* of One Illus

ger and Raok.
The style of stall shown In the Il
lustration affords a great degreo of
comfort to the cow. The distinguish
ing features of the stall are the mov
able mangor and rack whereby the
length of the standing room In front
and behind may be varied to suit the
individual cow, and tho fastening for
tho animal, which consists of a ropo
or chuln across the rear end of tho
stall, to keep the cow from backing

gates (which should all swing one
way), aro about 4 feet long. The rear
posts, If used, should slant, as shown
In the cut, to allow the milker a Uttlo
moro room. In some stables these
roar posts have becu done away with
entirely, tho gatos simply being
chained or roped together. As usual
ly built, tho front rack or panel Is
mado of 2xt framo-work, with 7-10
Inch Iron rods; and this frame-work
is fastened solidly to tho manger; but
tho mangor and frame-work aro not
attached to tho sides of tho stall, but
left looso, so as to bo adjusted to tho
length of tho cow. In some cases,
however, tho rack Is hinged at tho
top and the bottom allowed to swing
Im tho mangor, so that it may be
swung toward tho front several1
Inches. This allows tho cow a little
more freedom In getting up and lying
down. Wooden'slats may bo substi

cases a section of iron wire fencing
Is used In place of the rods. Tho ropo
across tho roar of tho stall is usually
stapled at one sldo and hooked with

BUILDING UP A DAIRY HERD
Fault of Dairymen In General Is
Proper Application of Knowledge
They Possess?Few Points.
Tho fault of dairymen In general is
not so much tho lack of knowledge
as the proper application of tho
knowlodgo they possess.
One thing that we ought to con
sider when we start out ti> buy breed
ing cattle la the fact that the knowl
edge, skill and character of the man
we buy them of Is about as Important
as tho animals thnt we are buying.
Can a man sow poor seed and hope
to get a good crop? Will nnturo
make any exceptions In one man's
favor? These are quostlons which
ought to Interest the man who keeps
on year after year breeding his cows
t$ some scrub hull.
Too many farmers lack the push
and energy required to build up a
fine herd of dairy cattle They aro
poor business men.
The cow cannot turn all of her en
ergy into the production of milk and
still have enough to build up her off
spring rightly. To ruiso good, vig
orous calves, wo must see to it that
the mother has sufficient of tho right
kind of food and goes dry long enough
to do the work rightly.
Age to Sell Cows.
The ago to which a cow of tho beef,
typo can bo profitably kept should be
gauged largely by her character as a
breeder. If she breeds regularly and;
rears good calves she should be kept
to a reasonable old age. This will
militate agalnat the price which she
will bring on the block when she is
sold, but the lack wTll be much more
than made up In the exceollent char
acter of the stock which she has pro
duced. On the other hand, when a>;
cow of this class Is not possessed ct)
promise as a successful breeder In tho
first and second calvos which she pro
duces, she ought to. be sold. Bnoh A,
cow may then be put upon the mar?
ket, so that she will command a good
When attending a farmers' Institute
recently Prof. O. T,. Martin, head of
the dairy department of the North Dfe
kota. Agricultural college, was asked
the question, "How much should but
ter be sailed?" His reply was: "For
ordinary marketing from three-fourths
of an ounce to one ounce to the pound
of butter fat."
Success in Dairying.
Success or failure In dairying does
not mean tho number of cows a man
keeps or the rushing that he does, but
upon the character of tho man, the Irv

"High Priced Quality in a Low Priced Car"
The Ford quality has never been sacrificed that the price
might be made attractively low. Quality sold the first Ford Cars
in 18p3 and quality has sold all Fords since that time.
The Ford Features are Original, Not Imitations
The Ford Motor, the Ford ignition system, the Ford transmis=
sion and all the important elements of the Ford car are distinctive
Ford ideas. We can prove this by showing* you in detail the con=
struction of the car.
The Ford Car Is Built for Hard Work.
If roads are poor, if hills are steep, if land is sandy, if rocks abound, if wet
weather is plenty, then the Ford Model T shows its real superiority. Because of
light weight of the car, abundance of power, splendid design, simplicity of me
chanism, low fuel consumption, little tire trouble, because of high clearance, this
car has become immensely popular.
