Prlntshop NOTES eS??*-~ MBUXWEflOOK -\ FARM The cow and the bow make a good farm team. Drive a colt the flrat time with a faat walking horse. Tbe hens will rollah a feed of scald ed oata at any time. Pull radishes Just aa soon aa they are big enough to bite. "Study to be quiet" la a fine thing In handling a team anywhere Chaff from the hay mow floor makes the best litter for chicks. Too sudden a change of diet for tre young calf is bound to s_tart trouble. clean the mud from the horse's limbs during seeding operations, and prevent scratches and fever. Quality In vegetables is the result of quick, unchecked growth, and this means plenty of water at all times. It ls not a difficult proposition to raise calves when the feeder uses some precaution in their management After turkey chicks are six week" old they must be allowed to rarite else they will be sadly atunted in growth. It is a mistake to try to fatten the brood bow. She should not be kept rvlth the hogs that are being prepared 'or market. While lt requires one sort of edu? cation to make a good riding or drlv ng horse, lt requires another to make i cart horse Hens that roost in a damp. close house are apt to give out in the lee lolnta with a trouble somewhat akin to rheumatism. It is easy to notice the effect of Eraan on the milk, but, with the cows that have silage, the change will be less perceptible. Fruit trees planted In the hoe pas? ture will supply shade and abu mirinee Jt food in tho fall when the trees :ome into bearing. netter dairying should be the aim >f every dalry farmer. It Is only as tie strives for better things that ha *an approach his Ideal. Tho man who makes a locceta at dairying or any other line of work starts with the right aim and never changes or loses sight of lt. Tests at experiment stations have shown that 20 per cent of tho cream ls saved by the use of a separator as compared with hand Bklmmlng There ls no problem that is of greata* Importance today than con? servation of soil fertility. The dalry cow, the hog and the hen help solve lt. Good care consists In doing every? thing from milking and caring for fha cows to marketing the butter or cream as If your whole life success depended upon lt Mix plaster of Paris and turpentine, mould in the shape of eggs, and put one In each nest to kill lice and mites. Do not use with eggs that aro hatching. There are 28 silos within a short distance of this farm. Many farmers have been closely preased In order to find feed for their stock but none of the bIIo owners were. A city chicken man has found a good way to break a broody hen He puts an alarm clock in the nest and when the clock goes off that hen goea off too?and never comes back. The cost of hauling over our coun? try roads ls now about 23 cents per ton per mlle. In European countries the cost ls below 10 cents. Our had roads are an expensive proposition. Shallow cultivation of corn ls most lr. favor with the experiment stationl, but much seems to depend upon cli? matic conditions. In dry climates you can safely cultivate deeper?three to four Inchee. There la nothing like pasture to make good gains on any kind of stock when fed in connection with corn. Ia hog feeding we do not think we are putting it too strongly to say that pas? ture saves 25 per cent in feed. The Injury to various fruit crops by Insects of all kinds is very great, ns every one knows, but Prof Sted man says that the damage to truck crops by Insects every year exceed! the damage to fruit crops. And yet how few gardeners take steps to pro? tect their crops. HOT WEATHER POULTRY CARE Remove Every Window ansVSubstltute Wire Netting for Ventilation of Hen House. It doer; not require much hard work to keep a flock in good condition In the summer, but absolute neglect will often completely destroy the winter e>gg-produclng qualities of not onlr tho old hens, but the pullets aa well. If you have not removed every win? dow lu thu chicken house and substi? tuted wire netting, in order to provide perfect ventilation, do so at once. Better that the chicks roost In the troos than that they be confined In a vermin-ridden building. Hody lice will worry a fle>ck to death, or ao nearly so as to destroy Its usefulness. These can be killed, but not easily. Good insect powder will do the business. It should be applied with a powder spray by one person, while another holds the fowls by tbe legs so that the powder may reach every part of the skin through the dis? turbed feathers. TURKEYS NEED LARGE RANGE Small Pen In Town ls Absolutely Not Suitable for Rearing Meat For Christmas Dinner. For those persons In town who are thinking of raising a turkey or two In their back yards there ls trouble In store. The back yard or pen is not I the place for a bird which refuses to I be domesticated. W. A. I.ipptncott. j head of the poultry department at the i Kansas Agricultural college, says. The farm is the place to raise tur j keys. They must have a good range. Hu ring the first few months it ls bet? ter to give them no grain, but let them i forage and eat bugs. If small turkeys j are cared for In this way, the fatality will lie much less. Professor Llpplncott suggests that ' you let some farmer take your young I turkeys nnd rear them. You might nr j range to pay a little rent to a farmor ! for allowing your birds to roam in his pastures. Then, along about Thanks? giving, all you have to do ls to go out and harvest your turkey. SHADE FOR CHICKEN COOPS Shelter ls Provided by Means of Sail Cloth Where Treee or Bushes Are Found Scarce. By means of a sail cloth, duck, or factory cotton curtain shade may easi? ly be supplied chickens where there are no trees or bushes. In such a case Shading Chicken Coop. as illustrated herewith the stakes are about 2 feet long, and driven 4 to 6 Inches in the ground. The curtain ls tied only at the corners. On the windy side the tying ls closer to the ground than on the lee side. Thia Is of especial help in spring. Keeping Birds Graded. Be sure to grade your birds accord? ing to size as the weeks pass. When you find that some are outstripping the others, take them away and put them with birds of their own size. If you have toe-marked the feet and have put on legbands, you will be able to tell the facts regarding them at any time. Here is where the value of records comes In. Keep an accurate record of every hatch, and then grade the birds without having to feel that if you mix them up you will not be able to tell them again when you want to know certain things about them. The contented and happy hen is the laying hen. Round pebbles will not do for rough edges to grind the grain. A writer recommends boiled rice for diarrhea in young turks. Imitate nature as closely aa possible and your turkey crop will pay out. Eggs should always be protected from the hot sun while being taken to market. Windows should now be out of the poultry house and wire netting tacked In their places. A floorless brood coop on clean, dry ground ls better than one with a hoard floor in lt. The average hen outlives her use? fulness in two years, and is more prof? itable sent to market. Whether kept for hatching or mar? ket eggs ought to be kept free from any form of moisture. When eggs are soft shelled the hens are either too fat or do not get enough mineral matter in their feed. Don't neglect the water gupply as plenty of water helps to keep the hens in good laying condition. A safe rule to follow in chick feed? ing ls to give them Just aa much as they will clean up nicely at each feed. The Incubator ls no longer an ex? periment, and the demand for poultry products suggests Its more general use. The "utility" bird is one that ls not without Its faults, but lt is often from a good strain, hence bas Us own eco nora'o values. One feeding rule ts to give the hens half as much as they will eat of a morning, nothing al noon and a full meal at night. l9ooDrop< =?rs?*_?i_rJ ALCOHOL 3 PER CENT. -Vegetable tor^ionlor. similaiiii? itieRXra--Jlae?j-} ling Hie Stomachs aft]_^e_$of INFANTS /CHILDRFN Pronwies Di^tion;C-wfii ness ami Restronlains nritter Opiuni.Morphine norMaenL Not Narcotic. j?t*w^auikaMxzfmasM raahtmOff Stud*" AaTZanaae AeteteSets ??cm*m*Se*e* Qenjke/Jtejer. aw?_htfj}Mf fMTfaV\ Aperfecl Remedy forConsftfJ lion.
