The Oldest Playwright.
Bertha Mann furnished the surprise
of the afternoon recently, says the De
cember Green Book, when she tried
a highly emotional role in a play
called “The Worth of a Man," at a
New York playhouse. A number of
budding playwrights were presented,
and she was besieged by them to play
the leading part in several plays they
had written. One became insistent,
and partly to satisfy her. Miss Mann
agreed to read the play. It proved
to be a theme as old as Adam, and j
after the second act Miss Mann aban- !
doned the task of further reading.
“You say you created this charac
ter?” Miss Mann inquired.
“The character and the play are
both original with me,” was the
ready response.
"And yet,” Miss Mann added ru
minatively, “you don't look two thou
sand years old!”

Here the Gnats of the congeries

Limit of Astrology.
All that any astrologer can do is to
point out fortunate or unfortunate
periods, and that is all. For instance,
when the malefic Saturn moves to an
inharmonious aspect in an individual's
chart it is absolutely certain that it
will have a harmful effect—it may
bring illness to himself, financial trou
bles or have other baneful effects—but
no astrologer can definitely state what
it will be, and any prophet who does
so simply guesses at it. It is the same
way with a benefic planet, which may
bring sudden good fortune, increase
in health and vitality, add to one's
prestige, etc.

Eat Less Meat If Your Kidneys Aren’t
Acting Right or If Back Hurts or
Bladder Bothers You.
When you wake up with backache
and dull misery in the kidney region
it generally means you have beeif eat
ing too much meat, says a well-known
authority. Meat forms uric acid which
overworks the kidneys in their effort
to filter it from the blood and they be
come sort of paralyzed and loggy.
When your kidneys get sluggish and
clog you must relieve them like you
relieve your bowels; removing all the
body's urinous waste, else you have
backache, sick headache, dizzy spells;
your stomach sours, tongue is coated,
and when the weather is bad you have
rheumatic twinges. The urine is
cloudy, full of sediment, channels oft
en get sore, water scalds and you are
obliged to seek relief two or three
times during the night.
Either consult a good, reliable physi
cian at once or get from your pharma
cist about four ounces of Jad Salts;
take a tablespoonful in a glass of
water before breakfast for a few days
and your kidneys will then act fine.
This famous salts is made from the
acid of grapes and lemon juice, com
bined with lithia, and has been used
for generations to clean and stimulate
sluggislr kidneys, also to neutralize
acids in the urine so it no longer irri
tates, thus ending bladder weakness.
lad Salts is a life saver for regular
meat eaters. It is inexpensive, cannot
injure and makes a delightful, effer
vescent lithia-water drink.—Adv.
Russian's Prayer for His Horse.
The Russians are in the habit of
using the following prayer for their
horses before going into action: "And
for these also, O Lord, the humble
beasts who with us bear the burden
and heat of the day, and offer their
guileless lives for the well-being of
their countries, we supplicate thy
great tenderness of heart, for thou
hast promised to save both man and
beast, and great is thy loving kind
ness, O Master, Saviour of the world.
Lord have mercy." Those also who
have traveled over some of the wide
spaces of Russia and Siberia will ap
preciate the simple trust shown in it.
for Russians have Qften to face
dangers alone on horseback in their
great country even in times of peace.

The Short Days.
The teacher was trying to explain
to her class the effects of heat and
cold, says Pearson's Weekly. She told
her little charges that an iron bridge
would expand several inches in hot
weather, and contract a like amount
in cold weather. She then asked a lit
tle girl for another instance of the ex
pansion and contraction caused by
heat and cold. The child hesitated for
a minute or so, and then replied: "In
hot weather the days are long; in cold
weather they are much shorter.”

A pretty big claim, but listen—
“All-wheat food” sounds good to most people, but
Grape-Nuts goes one better. It not only contains the en

More! Grape-Nuts is long baked and digests quickly.
Most wheat foods—bread for instance and some so-calle4

Grape-Nuts food digests generally in about one hour.
Being highly concentrated, there’s more actual food
value, weight for weight, in Grape-Nuts than in some other
foods sold in bigger packages.
Grape-Nuts contains the vital bone, muscle and nerve

ration of Grape-Nuts readily makes up for this lack.

Hog Cots Banked Up on Sides to Keep Animals Warm.
There is a great difference in opin
ion among farmers—and good farmers
at that—as to the age at which sows
should be bred. Some men breed gilts
at ten or eleven months, while others
do not breed until they are two years
Never select a brood sow with a
long, lean, narrow head, and a wicked
little eye. She is apt to be nervous
and cross and a pig eater.
It is a good plan to feed a little
grain to the growing pigs, even though
they are running on good pastures.
In the South many hog raisers turn
their young hogs out into the swamps
along the rivers and creeks, and pay
no attention to them during the entire
summer, rounding them up in the fall,
only to feed them two or three weeks
before shipping them to market. Some
surprisingly good results are obtained
in this way, too.
^ows with a yourg litter should be
watched carefully, for there are many
sows that do not give enough milk to
start the pigs off well. In such cases
the youngsters should be fed a little
whole cow's milk, warmed at first, and
later skim milk, with a handful of
shorts in it.
The man who raises pigs for mar
ket, and pushes them along with some
i'rain, shorts and oats, even while they
are running in rich pastures, will
bring them to perfection much more
uuick^.’ than if they are allowed to run
pn grass alone, until fall.
Keep the box full of charcoal, salt
;*nd sulphur, where the pigs can get at
i; all the time. It may surprise you to
fnd out how much they will eat, but it
vill pay to provide this food for them.
When pigs are old enough to eat
they should be fed in a separate pen
from that in which theifc mother is
i confined. A door just large enough
! to admit the pigs and keep out the
mother should be placed in the parti
tion, so the youngsters can come and
go at will.
Sunshine and exercise are the indis
pensable rights of all farm animals.
Modern hog houses are, as a rule,
too close, too warm and too comfort
Poor ventilation is the common fault \
and the inaccessibility to sunlight is I
an equally serious one.
It is a sad mistake to imagine that
increasing the bulk of the feed for
hogs by adding water will do them any
Clean food and clean quarters will
keep the hogs healthy.
Keep the troughs clean. Never feed
any fermented food.
Among the feeds that should he
given is skim milk, which is very good,
as it contains a large amount of pro
tein, and is bulky. Clover is an ex
ceptionally good feed in the green
state, and even clover hay steamed
proves very nutritious. Oil meal cake
contains much nutriment of the right
kind. Where alfalfa can be had it is
also good. Oats in various forms fur
nish the exact kind of nutriment most
serviceable for the breeding animals.
The sow that is carrying pigs needs
a large amount of protein food on ac
count of the extra bodies she is build
ing up. But care must be taken not to
have too much protein in the food, as
the starchy parts are also needed. The
starch-forming elements should be five
or six times the protein elements.
This is about the composition of oat
meal- Bran is a highly nitrogenous j
feed and should be balanced with l
something else when it is fed. All !
plants that have pods are rich in pro-!
tein and are thus good materials out
of which to make food for breeding
swine. »
Young boars will usually make bet
ter growth if kept separated from the
sows. There might be conditions or
exceptions where this would not be
true, but they will certainly be rare.
Not only should tht boar be separat
ed from the sows when there are
young pigs around, but at all other
times. The mos' expensive way of
keeping a boar i to let him run with
the rest of the heru. He should be
kept in a lot by himself, but this lot
should be large enough to furnish
ample green feed and plenty of exer
Pi'.'s make the heaviest and cheap

first two months of their existence.
Changes in the character or quan
tity of the ration should always be
made very graduaTly.

the number of pigs she raises. Qual
ity mij,?t always be considered. Six
or set t-n good even pigs are often
worth more than nine or ten uneven

her as long as she does well.
Colorado Expert Recommends
Treatment for Ailment
Cause of Trouble.
(By GEORGE H. GLOVER. Colorado Ag
ricultural College.)
Partial or complete paralysis of the
hind legs of Logs >s seen so often in
swine herds (hat a common cause
has been suspected but not definitely
Inbreeding, parasites, and an unbal
anced ration, have each in turn been
assigned as the probable cause of this
particular form ol paralysis, and now
it is quite generally attributed to a
lack of phosphate of lime. This salt
in a form that can be appropriated
may be deficient in the ration or not
properly appropriated by the tissues
of the body, or again, it may be be
cause of a drain on the system foi
phosphates to nourish the growing
fetus or the young after birth.
It is a well-known fact that there
is a deficiency of phosphate of lime in
the bones and other tissue of preg
nant animals and in those that are
suckling their youcg. This is especial
ly true of the sow. But this condition
is not confined to pregnant animals.
In one instance a herd of 44 hogs, oi
both sexes, and ages ranging from ten
months to two years, nearly all oi
them were affected with partial or com
plete paralysis of the hind legs. The
ration had been largely raw potatoes.
They appeared to suffer no pain, the
appetite was quite normal. A balanced
ration would probably have prevented
this condition. The following treat
ment has been recommended and
should be helpful in these cases. One
tablespoonful of cod liver oil, 15 grains
phosphate of lime and three drops of
fluid extract of nux vomica mixed with
the food twice a day.
Throw Their Feed in Litter of
Some Kind and Make Them
Scratch for It.
Make your hens work for all they
get to eat. Keep them moving about
during the day as much as possible by
throwing their feed in chaff, cut straw,
shredded cornstalk or other material.
Give them as much of a variety of
grain as you possibly can.
Wheat, oats, cracked corn, barley
and buckwheat are all good, but
should be mixed together when fed
Never feed all of one kind of grain at
one time. They like a variety. Foi
green food, second cutting of clover
is one of the best. Cabbage, carrots
and mangel-wurzels can also be fed
to advantage. They should be fed at
least three times a week meat of some
Beef scraps soaked and mixed with
bran, enough to take up the moisture,
answers this purpose. Skim milk add
ed to the mash will give good results.
Plenty ol fresh water and grit should
be where they can have access to it a?
all times.
Separate the Hogs.
Separate the breeding stock from
the fattening hogs, also separate thf
larger from the smaller ones.
Fowls Need Some Meat.
Meat in some form should be sup
plied to the fowls. They need prdtein,
and in' beef scraps this is found in
good quantities. Good beef scraps
contain from 50 to 60 per cent. It
should be well aired and clean.
Successful Stock Feeding.

tention to the details that add to the

You Don’t Have to Lie About
Canada—The Simple Truth
Is Enough.
The natural resources of the coun
try are so vast that they cannot be
told in mere figures. Man can only
tell of what tiny portions have done.
He can only say, “I am more pros
perous than I ever expected to be.
And yet if a farmer expects to suc
ceed on land that he has been forced
to pay $50 to $100 an acre for he ought
to feel assured of attaining prosperity
when he finds the richest prairie soil
at his disposal absolutely free. If he
has a little capital, let him invest it
all in live stock and farm implements
—he will find himself ten years ahead
of the game. Some day such a chance
will not be found anywhere on the
face of the globe. But now the same
opportunities await you as awaited
the pioneer and not one hundredth
part of the difficulties he encountered
and overcame. Success in Canada is
made up of two things, natural re
sources and human labor. Canada
lias the one and you the other. A
postal card stands between you and
the Canadian government agent. If
you don’t hold these two forces and
enjoy the fruits of the result it is your
own fault
Debt and Canada Will Not Stand
You want a cozy home, a free life,
and sufficient income. You want edu
cation for your children, and some
pleasure for your wife. You want in
dependence. Your burden has been
heavy, and your farm hasn’t paid.
You work hard and are discouraged.
You require a change. There is a
goal within sight, where your children
will have advantages. You can get a
home in Western Canada, freedom,
where your ambitions can be fulfilled.
If the Prairie Provinces of Canada are
full of Successful Farmers why should
you prove the exception? Haven’t you
got brains, experience, courage? Then
prove what these are capable of when
put on trial. It Is encouraging to
know that there is one country in the

miserable pains across me, and was very nervous and generally run

back ached, I had no appetite and was so nervous I could not sleep,
then I would be so tired mornings that I could scarcely get around.
It seemed almost impossible to move or do a bit of work and I
