After "the garden season was over we let them run, as did our neighbors. In this way I suppose tly got more or less mixed. One day I decided to have a chicken for dinner, and, not liking to kill It myself my husband being away I asked our neighbor If he would kill it for me. He kindly consented, so I brought out the particular fowl I had selected. He killed, it, and I thanked him and proceeded to prepare .it for dinner. when dinner was over I went out to feed the chickens. What was my surprise to find among them the fowl I thought I had just eaten. It was my neighbor's chicken I had asked him to kill for me.- Of course, I lost no time in making apologies and also insisted that they take ours instead, and they had a good laugh at my expense.

WOMEN OF MIDDLE LIFE A Dangerous Period Through Which Every Woman Must Pass Practical Suggestions Given by the Women Whose Letters Follow Afton, Tenn. "I want other suffering; women to know what Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound has done for me. During the Change of Life I waa in bed for eight months and had two good doctors treating me but they did me no good. A friend advised me to take Lydia E. Pmkham's Veg eee- table Compound, which I did. and in m short time I felt better. I had all kinds of bad spells, but they all left me. Now when I feel weak and nervous I take the Vegetable Compound and it always does me good. I wish all women would try it during the Change of Life for I know it will do them good. If you think itwill induce some one to try the Vegetable Com pound yon may publish this letter. Mrs. A. Keller, Afton, Tenn. Mrs. Mary Lister of Adrian, AIich.,a.dds her testimony to the value of Lydia E. Pinkhara'o to carry women safely through the Change of Xiif e. She says s "It if with pleasure that I write to you thanking you for what your wonderful medicine has done for me. I was passing through the Change of Laf e and had a displacement and weakness so that I could not stand on my feet and other annoying symptoms. A friend told me about Lydia E. Pink ham s Vegetable Compound and the first bottle helped me, so I got more. It cured me and I am now doing my housework. Your medicine is certainly woman's friend and you may use this testimonial as you choose." Mrs. Mary Lister, 608 Frank Street, Adrian, Mich. It is said that middle age is the most trying period in a woman's life, and awing to modern methods of living not one woman in a thousand passes through this perfectly natural change without experiencing very annoying symptoms. Those smothering spells, the dreadful hot flashes that send the blood rushing to the head until it seems as though it would burst, and the faint feeling that follows, as if the heart were going to stop, those sinking or dizzy spells are all symptoms of a nervous condition, and indicate the need for a special medicine. LvdiE- Pinkham'a Vegetable Compound is a root and herb medicine espe cially adapted to act upon the feminine system. It acts in such a manner as to build op the weakened nervous system and enables a woman to pass this trying period with the least possible annoying symptoms. Women everywhere should remember that most of the commoner ailments of women are not the surgical ones they are not caused by serious displace ments or growths, although the symptoms may be the same, and that is why so many apparently serious ailments readily yield to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, as it acts as a natural restorative and often prevents serious troubles. JLydia E.

Medium-sized scissors hanging in a convenient place In the kitchen are a valuable help. Here are some of the purposes for which they will be found useful, according to workers in the experimental kitchen in the United States Department of Agriculture. For cutting cold meat luto cubes. For cutting celery or green pep pers into small pieces for pickles or salads. For shredding cabbage or lettuce. For cutting up raisins or dates. For cutting" out the center mem brane of a grapefruit In preparing It for the table. For cutting out the woody core and eyes- of fresh pineapple. For trimming the rinds from break fast bacon.

To save time in preparation or when no cutter Is at hand, the dough may be made somewhat softer than above and dropped ' on the tin by spoonfuls about one-half inch apart. The mixture, although soft, should be stift enough not to spread on the tin, jet soft enough so that the biscuits when baked have a smooth, rounded surface rather than a rough, lumpy one.

Home Demonstration Agent Giving a Meat-Canning Lesson. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Six more home demonstration agents in Arkansas have learned how to cut up and can a be'f carcass and will teach the people in tlier respective ter ritories. Recently they attended a dem onstration school in meat canning con ducted by a canning specialist from the United States Department of Agri culture at Lake Village, Ark. The demonstration was given at a local hospital. Besides the six agents. there were approximately 50 people of the community in attendance, includ ing many nurses and doctors. The head doctor contributed a beef animal, which was slaughtered for the demon- tratlon. After the meat was cut up. the pieces were boiled or roasted. The bones and meat scraps were used for making soup stock and beef stew. The carcass of the beef, not includ ing the head, feet, or the intestines, weighed 1374 pounds. After the bones had been utilized for soup stock, they weighed 35 pounds, which left 135 pounds of meat for canning. From this amount T2 Xo. 2 cans of roast beef, S of steak, 28 of boiled meat with soup stock thick enough to Jelly, 11 oi Deer nash, and 1U of very con centrated meat stock were canned. Alive the animal would not have brought more than $10 in the local market. The canned meat was esti mi ted to be worth at least $45. The heart, liver,, feet, and head paid for the cost of butchering. The value ot the hide was extra profit. (Prepared by the United States Depart - merit of Agriculture.) It is poor business- to neglect the care of leather. Every pair of shoes, every machine belt, piece of harness, or other leather product on the farm that is allowed to go to waste or not made to yield its full service must be needlessly replaced, thus adding un necessary expense -to the farm, say specialists of the United States De partment of Agriculture. On many farms a set of harness lasts less than ten years. Where eight or ten horses are kept this means one new set of harness every year. The department has received many reports, especially from Southern states, showing that harness lasts only from two to five years. But good harness, properly cared for, will last 20 years or more. In every neighborhood there are cases where farmers are cutting their har ness bills in half by giving the leather a cleaning and oiling occasionally. Fifty million pairs of shoes could be saved annually If the American people kept their footwear In repair, the specialists say. As a nation we buy some 300,000,000 pairs of shoes a year, but If each individual cared for his shoes properly the needs could be supplied by 250,000,000 pairs. The wasting of a single shoe a year by. each person In the United States would cost the country at least $2oO, 000.O00 annually at present prices of shoes. Any leather improperly used and neglected will deteriorate rapidly. Belts for driving machinery, for ex ample, often become impaired. If not useless, within a few years even on straight drives, but when they are kept clean and oiled they will last from ten to thirty years. Selecting and Caring for Harness. Harness that Is too light or of poor quality cannot give years of service. In selecting harness, it is more eco nomical to get a set that is too heavy than one which Is too light for the work required. Make sure especially that the reins, breeching, holdback straps, tugs or traces, bellybands, and yoke straps are - strong. A runaway team cannot be controlled with weak reins, nor will weak tugs and straps stand heavy work. No portion of the harness should show cracks on the grain side when the leather is sharp ly bent. Harness should be aslied and oiled when it becomes dirty or extremely dry. For washing, use tepid water, a nratral soap, sucn as castile or white toilet soap, and a sponge or fairly stiff brush. Hardened grease Is very- con veniently removed by scraping with a dull knife. Rinse in clean, tepid water, and allow the harness to stand in a warm place until it is no longer wet but still damp. Then oil it and leave It In a warm place for 24 hours before being used. Harness should be oiled or greased while still damp ; oth erwise, it may take up so much grease that it will pull out of shape or take up sand and grit, which will injure It, as well as. spoil its appearance. Har ness should never look or feel greasy. Neat's-foot or castor oil or a mix ture of tlie.se with wool grease is good for driving harness. For heavy har ness use a mixture of any or all of these, with wool grease to make a paste, having about the consistency of butter. Apply the grease lightly to driving harness and liberally to work harness. Rub the oil or grease, warm to the hand, thoroughly into the leath er while it Is still damp from wash- j mg. After tne harness has hung In a warm room overnight, remove with a clean dry cloth the excess of oil which the leather is unable to take up. Keep Belts Clean. Jn selecting a belt for driving ma chinery, make sure that it Is wide and heavy enough for the load it is to carry. Ordinarily the competent belt maker's advlai as to the proper belt for a given Installation should be fol lowed. If the belt is not suited, to the work it gives trouble continually, causing shutdown of machinery that will noon cost more in loss of time and wages than many good belts. It should always be sufficiently flexible to cling closely to the smallest pulley over which it passes. A belt will not give satisfactory results If. it slips, .in,--- inn true. !s not properly ii too loofic or t" tltrlit, is subjected to rapid changes from light to heavy loads, is alternately wet and dry. Is run on pulleys that are not true or are too small for the weight and thickness of the belt, or is neg lected andallowed to deteriorate for lack of grease. The belt should be wiped off every night to prevent dust, dirt, or oil from working Into It. When the belt needs oiling clean It well, especially on - the pulley side, by washing with warm water and a good neutral soap. Wash rapidly and do not permit belt to be come wet, as it will then stretch and slip. Apply the dressing lightly and evenly "by rubbing it in with cotton waste or a piece of felt, and allow It to soak In the belt overnight. Among the best belt dressings are mixtures of cod and neat's-foot oils with tal low and wool grease, free from min eral acid, . - " ' ' HELPING OUT SHORT ' PASTURE IN SUMMER Stock Raisers Face Inconveni ence and Stock Loss. There Is Only One Remedy Where Vast Herds Are Kept and That Is to Practice System of Deferred and Rotation Grazing. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Stock raisers, especially lnthe Southwest, often, at this season of the year, face much inconvenience and probable loss of cattle through the shortage of pastures. In other 'sec tions, where smaller herds and areas are Involved, the summer pasture situ ation can be met In various ways, say specialists of the United States De-' partment of Agriculture.' Among the ways are the sowing of catch crops for summer forage or temporary pas tures. But, with ranges running into thousands of acres, with' vast herds grazing, there is only one remedy and that Is to put into practice a system of deferred and rotation grazing. Such a system will necessitate the division of the range into separate pastures, keeping the cattle off of one pasture each year until the seeds of the native grasses are mature, at which time cattle may be turned to graze. In this manner the growth oi grass is utilized and the grass seeds are trampled Into the soil, which Is necessary to germination. By sys tematic rotation each pasture may be allowed to reseed once In each three to five years, as desired. Where ranges are heavily stocked in the beginning of such a system, it may be necessary to transfer a part of the herd to other ranges, but the ultimate result will be an increase in the carrying capacity of the range, as has been shown in various experiences in the Southwest. Overstocking should be avoided in every Instance. WASHING SPINACH NOT GOOD Practice Found to Have Unfavorable Effect en Keeping Qualities and Favors Rot. Washing spinach before shipment has been found to have an unfavorable effect on its keeping qualities. Un washed spinach, It Is said, showed un der test practically no soft rot, while washed spinach showed 5.5 per cent. Three days later the washed spinach developed 24.8 per cent rot, while the unwashed developed only 5.7 per cent, it was found. MANAGEMENT OF BROOD SOWS Bringing Them Up in Good Flesh Bo fore Breeding Season Is Most Important Factor. One of the most important factor In brood sow management Is that of bringing them up to good flesh condi tion before the breeding season and furnishing them with an abundance of blood, bone and muscle-building feeds after they are safe with pig. Liberal rations of suitable feedstuffs are need ed to develop the unborn pigs an malntnln ilie body vigor of the sow.
