If we hro anxious to keep well and preserve tho vitality of the kidneys und, also, free the blood from noxious elements, wo must pay special attention to a good action of the skin and to see that tho kidneys are flushed so as to elimi nate the poisons from the blood.

Simple Precautions by Which Owners May Keep Ailments From Their Animals Guard Arjalnst Infectious Abortion. (From tho Unite! States Department of Agriculture.) Tuberculosis Is the commonest nnd most widely prevalent of all contnj,'Ious diseases. There are ninny other in fections, however, which are much more easily spread, and to which the body of the average man or animal Is much less resistant. The explanation of these apparently Inconsistent facts is to be found In tho appearance of perfect health which victims of tho dis ease often possess long after 4 hey have become active disseminators of the tuberculosis genu. It is thus pos sible for the disease to be Introduced Into herds and to become firmly estab lished In them without tho knowledge of the owner. Live stock can bo protected against this Insidious disease by tho practice of two rules, which may be stated as follows : (1) . Never introduce nn nnltnal Into n healthy herd or Hock unless there is positive pvoof that It comes from a healthy herd or llock. (2) Consult your veterinarian re garding the special tests which can bo made to prove whether animals are free from serious and common diseases and make sure that no animals are added to healthy herds unless these tests, combined with a period of segre gation, show that they are free from Infection. Infectious Abortion. In Its Insidious and chronic charac ter Infectious abortion somewhat re sembles tuberculosis. The germs of this disease may be spread by animals thnt are apparently healthy, and pre cautions similar to those adopted for tuberculosis should therefore be taken to prevent its dissemination. The essential cause of tuberculosis Is tho tubercle bacillus. Unless this germ Is present there can be no tuber culosis. Furthermore, as far as wo know, the germ does not seem able to grow anywhere but in tho bodies of its victims, and it is not able to establish Itself In a new victim unless the animal Is exposed to It repeatedly or for relatively long periods of time, or un der peculiarly unfavorable conditions. Despite the prevalence of the disease, therefore. It is posslljle to guard against It by doing away with the con ditions thnt favor Us spread. Unhygienic Conditions. Unhygienic conditions prepare anl ; mis for the development of tuberculo sis In much tho same manner as culti vation prepares a piece of land for tho production of a crop. Nevertheless, even under such conditions, tuberculo sis cannot develop without the tuber cle bacilli any more than a crop can be produced In a cultivated field with out seed. To prevent tuberculosis In live stock, therefore, the germs should be kept away by the precautions already outlined : First, prevent the Introduc tion of infectious animals Into the herd or llock; nnd, secondly, the surround ings of live stock should be such that the animals are kept in sulllclently good condition to resist the chance at tacks of the germ.

This plank Is used to change the horizontal draft to the vertical, l'lacc on end of the chnln around post close to the ground, l'lace the chain In the notch of the plank. Start team and tho post In a few seconds will be out of the ground. BEST CULTIVATION FOR CORN Work Can Be Done Well With Narrow. Shoveled Cultlv.tor Light Har row Also Is Useful. Shallow cultivation In a good seed bed can be done well with a narrow shoveled cultivator or a light harrow, the teeth of which slant backward. In a field In which there are loose sods that may prevent the young plants from reaching the surface, the culti vator Is to be pruferred to the har row. Harrowing corn after It Is up ahrnys reduces the stand somewhat, but In many cases it is a good method f saving labor. The harrowing should be done on a bright afteruoon when the plants are somewhat wilted. They - ,iiu onslly broken then. iS0ME diseases of tomato Many Promising Crops Destroyed by Blight Bordeaux Mixture In Given as Best Remedy. Many u promising crop of tomatoes is destroyed by "blight" or some one of tho other tomato diseases. There tire three or four distinct diseases of the tomato fruit and vines, but to tho casual observer these diseases usually appear as dark depressed spots upon the fruit or as n dying and drying up of the foliage. The trentnieilt Is tho same In all cases and is as follows: Spray the plants for the first time when they are 12 to 15 Inches high and have become well established In tho field, using strong bordeaux mix ture, that Is five pounds unslneked lime, five pounds of copper sulphate (blue stone), nnd CO gallons of water. The copper sulphate and lime must each be dissolved separately, and then diluted nnd mixed. He sure to ap ply as a fine mist spray and do the work thoroughly. Repeat every two weeks until three to five applications have been made. OX WARBLES ARE INJURIOUS Files Cause Serious Losses In Cattle Every Year May Be Controlled by Squeezing Grubs Out. Ox warble files, which cause serious losses In cattle every year, may bo largely controlled by squeezing the grubs out of Infested animals during the early spring months. The eggs arc laid during the summer mainly upon the hair on the legs of cnttlo The young mnggots are found In the gullet from September to February, after which they appear under the hide. Small lumps on the back Indi cate tho position of tho grubs. Hides are reduced In valuefrom one to two cents a pound by the presences of ox warbles. Flesh Is sometimes so damaged as to be unfit for sale. Milk production Is lessened by tho presence of numerous grubs. Cattle in general are annoyed seriously by these war bles. Removing and destroying all tho grubs from Infested cattle will reduce tho number of egg-laying females for next summer. PROVIDE GRAIN FOR CALVES Best to Feed Cracked Corn at First and Later on Shelled Whole Oats Arc Recommended. (By II. KILDHfi. University Farm, St Paul, Minn.) A grain ration of equnl pnrts corn, oats and bran, with a smnll quantity of oil meal, should be provided for the calf. Even when only a few weeks old a calf will begin to cat grain, and nibble at hay. It Is best to feed cracked corn first and later shelled corn. Whole onts are better than ground oats for tho young calf. Clover Healthy, Vigorous Calf. liny, or mixed clover and alfalfa, Is superior to alfalfa alone, us alfalfa alone Is too rich for the kidneys and digestive tract. Calves dropped in the fall and early winter will do well on pasture tho first summer, If provided with somo grain and shnde, while calves dropped In the spring or early summer are much better off when properly cared for In the barn during the first sum mer.

Stemplo of tho furm crops depart ment, Ohio Stnlo university, for ground where the spring crops have failed or It Is too late to plant com.

CAUSE OF WATERMELON WILT 1 Fungus Which Lives In Soli Plugs Up i Water-Carrying vessels, Prevent ing Rise of Moisture. I Watermelon wilt Is caused by a fun (.'us which lives In the soil and enters tho roots, plugging up the water-carry Ing vessels and preventing the rise of moisture, thus causing the wilting and death of the plant.
