No one has ever disputed the fact that a blooded hog is more economi cal and a quicker and surer road to success than the razor back. The cause of so much prejudice and jealousy against the blooded hog by the farmer who has only been raising rake-straws, is that they take cholera or some other disease quicker than the "raker." The farmer forgets the time when he probably lost most all of his "rakers" by disease or that his neighbors hogs died with it. The blooded hog is not any more apt to get disease than the common hog if you give him the sanitary conditions which the rake-straw enjoys out in the open woods. Most people when they get a blooded pig take him home and confine him in a small pen or lot and feed him on a small amount of dry corn and clear water and expect the pig to grow up to weigh three or four hundred pounds on,this feed. If the pig dies then the man says the blooded hogs are no good. Give the pig a good, well balanced ration and clean quarters in which to live and you will be bothered much less with disease. Do not allow hogs to sleep under a shed or house where there is dust as the dust will give the hog a cough and once the pig starts cough ing it is hard to cure. In many cases the cough caused by dirty lungs so weakens the pig that he takes cholera quicker and easier than had he been in a healthy con dition. Every far*er' should get good hogs and see that they are all inoculated every spring, which will carry them through the hot part of the summer, immune from cholera. I would like to see every boy in the parish get a fine pair of pigs and go into the hog business for himself. It is a good start for the boy and he will learn lessons in hog raising that will be of much service to him in after life. Instruction will be given in feeding, care of pigs, and in in oculating. I am now prepared to help any worthy boy get a fine pig and give him a year to pay for it ii only I can find boys who will take care of the pigs like I tell them. 1 particularly want all corn club boys to get a pig, as corn and hogs go together, but any boy who means business and will promise faithfully to follow our instructions can gel one or a pair of pigs. Now is the time to get buly and see me about getting the pig, ae you will be re quired to exhibit the pig at our par ish fair this fall. For the benefit of other boy pig club members I am giving below LhIe 1Hog Laws" of Willie Warner, wvhc is one of the most successful boy hcg raisers in the parish. He has hogs weighing up to 500 pound; ai:d knows how to care for tnem. He.d nis laws below: I do not like a rake-straw hog f~i he is too much trouble to tell when he is fat. I do not like to have tc run him down and hold him up by the ears and see if he Is fat or not, for about half the time the head end is the heaviest. I want a hog thai I do not need to go through with that kind of monkey motion to tel whether he is fat sr not, and 1 cer tainly do want one that will be heavier at the tail end. Do not let your hogs get lousy lice will kill as many hogs as cholera. Dip your hogs and kill the lice, for they have been known to get on peo ple and create other kinds of lice. Do not lose patience with your hogs. Treat them as pets and al ways be kind to them. Keep fresh water where the hogs can get to it and put in a bit of Kreso Dip once in a while to disin feet and for worms. Do not wean pigs too young. It stunts them, and a htunted pig is like a stunted boy-always small. Do not kick your hogs around out of your way from time to time--let the mules do the kicking to each other. See that the sow has good quarters in which to bring her pigs, and pro vide against her crushing them, with the side board near the wall. Be sure that your hogs are inocu lated in due timne. Do not wait till half of them are dead before think ing about getting busy. 'Feed your hogs at a regular time every day and do not allow them to have any feed any other time, except at the regular time, they then learn WATERWORKS MEETS DEFEAT (Continued from page 1) Mrs. H.

What is the cheapest remedy and how to use it? Get three pounds arsenate of lead in paste form and put two table spoonsful in ten quarts water. Add small piece soap and stir thoroughly and spray tomato plants. This is also good for any other plant being both ered by beetles, worms or bugs. J. J. T., Bush, La.-I write you about Bur Clover. When is the best time to plant it and how should it be planted? Is it a- pest, if not, how much seed should I sow on an acre? I want to use it for a winter pasture for hogs. Bur Clover does well in this coun try, and to do its best the seed must be sown in September or first week in October. You will need to get the seed..inoculated with the special Bur Clover farmogerm or bacteria. Af ter your land has grown clover oncŽc you will not need to use the farmo germ again. Your land needs to be well prepared and seed harrowed in lightly. Sow seed broad-cast at the rate of 15 pounds per acre. The plants die down in the late spring and are not in any way a pest.

Onvil, La.-I want to get small canner for home use. ;;ha will one cost and where can I get it Which is the best kind to get'! There are a great number of can ners on the market and all the mak ers claim they have the best one There are only two processes used it canning, which is steam and hot water. The steam method,is the ont used the most in the big canning fac tories and the most satisfactory way Anything in the fruit, vegetable anc meat line can be put up with thl steam process when lots of troubl. and loss would occur in the hot wate:r method. The steam method is muce faster and neater. Three hundred cans can be put up in a day with $15 machine, and on a hot water cooker not more than half that coukl be done. We recommend the "Na tional Steam Oanner," put up by the Eau Claire Steel & Iron Works, Ea: Claire, Wis. They make them froir $10 up. A. A. S., Goodbee.-I am going t: put out quite a lot of sweet potatoes this season and I would like to know what kind of fertilizer would giv' the best results. My land is levey with about 4-inch sandy soil and yel low clay foundation. What is the best mixture and how much to us-e per acre? You did not state whether you bad any .arn lot rerti.,er on hand or not, but if you have, prepare land and fertilize as follows: Flat break land deep and harrow thoroughly. Lay off rows, 4 feet apart with F inch corn shovel, and in this furrov put a good sowing of barn lot ma nure. On the manure sprinkle 40t pounds acid phosphate per acre. If acid i. not available use 300 pound: Ibone meal. After sowing fertilizer run a cultivator through to mix al: with soil and then put on four fur rows with one horle plow, harrow of lightly and set out cuttings or vine about 16 to 18 inches apart. Thr first cultivation can then be given with a side harrow and then follow ed with a small sweep. In case no manure is on hand use 600 pounds of cotton seed meal and bone mea' mixed in equal parts. A. G., Covington.-I see my pecan trees are being bothered with a beetle of some kind. The beetle drills little holes in the limbs and in some places on body of tree, and I am afraid the trees will finally be killed by them. What is best to do Your trees are being bothered by the pecan bark beetle and the best way to light him is to take a hoe and scrape all outside rough bark off, be ing careful not to go too deep and injure live under-bark. Then make up a lime-sulphur whitewash ant' paint the body .and out on the main limbs of the tree a bit. This will kill the eggs of the beetle before they hatch and also will prevent the mother beetle from alighting on the body of the tree. The trees should be treated in this manner in Febru ary and again in December. L. Wehrli, Jr. ......... 100.00 Dr. B. B. Warren ..... 1500.01 Miss Anais Boudousquie 250.00 J. D.
