There is nothing truer than

tcssence of what Aristotle calls
the probable impossibility.
The -best of the fairy tales are
folklore, giving the boiled
down wisdom of centuries of
experience, and the truths they
icach are the old, old facts of
human nature put into visible
form for childish minds to
grasp. These tales do not
teach morals by precept, but
truths by example, says Col
lier's. .No amount of teach

and the rewards of virtue, can
have such an effect on the

twinkly eyes coming with toys

SILAGE REDUCES BEEF COST
Result Given of Steer-Feeding Test
Made at Missouri College of
A steer-feeding test reC('ently com
pleted at the Missouri College of Agri
culture illustrates the possibility of re
ducing the cost of beef production by
the extensive use of corn silage. Six
teen head of two-year-old steers fed
for 130 (lays made an average gain in
live weight of 322 pounds per head.
They were fed 3.16 tons of corn silage,
750 pounds of alfalfa hay, and 503
pounds of cotton-seed meal and old
process linseed oil meal per steer.
They received no corn other than that
contained in the silage. By this meth
od of feeding a fairly satisfactory
grade of beef can be produced, and it
Is possible to fatten three steers on an
acre of good corn instead of one,
which was usual under former meth
ods of feeding.
