E. Fox, assistant in poultry husbandry In the Kansas State Agricultural col lege. "Constitutional vigor should be the first consideration in the selection of a hen," said Mr. Fox. "The head should be broad, wide and deep; the eyes full, round and prominent; the back short and stout; and the neck of medium length. "Individuals should be selected that have well proportioned backs, broad at the rear extremity. The birds should have broad, deep breasts with long keels, which should extend well to the rear. The body should have plenty of capacity to allow room for the diges tive and reproductive organs. Anoth er indication of vigor Is the well-worn or blunt toenail. Select only active, vigorous hens. A good rule for this is the old saying, 'the best hen is the first off the roost In the morning and the last on In the evening, pullets.

Not having enough brooding space last spring and not wanting to put much money into new houses, I hit upon the following plan: I first secured two piano boxes from a piano dealer. Then I bought at the lumber yard two pieces 2 by 6 . 9 feet long, and four pieces 2 by 4, 6 feet long, says a writer In National Stockman and Farmer. These six pieces I made into a sled. I set the 2 by 6 pieces on edge parallel and six feet apart. I then mortised the four pieces in them, spacing them hardly three feet apart and spiked them down. I set the boxes on the sled one at each end with the backs facing in, then carefully removed the backs and divided each into two equal parts and put one of these parts on the sled between the boxes for the floor. Another part bridges the gap in the roof. The third part closes one side and the fourth makes the door. On each side of the door I put in a window. For roofing I used prepared roofing and extended the strips to the ground on both ends. I covered the back with the same material. Planting Shrubs. Avoid as you would the plague the too common practice of scattering trees and shrubs promiscuously about the place. That may be a good way to plant a nursery, but it is not a good way to adorn a home. Call a Veterinarian. When anything is wrong with one cf the horses, send for a man who knows horses. Don't trust the judg ment of Tom, Dick and Harry. Horses are too valuable for that. grown on the farm for several years. The Inoculation is a simple matter and easily done. During the spring or summer distribute from the rear end of a wagon 300 or 400 pounds per acre of sweet clover or alfalfa soil, secured from a sweet clover or from a good alfalfa field. Drainage.—Alfalfa will not do well In sour, wet, soggy ground. If not nat urally drained it should be tlle-dralned. 1. Cultivate.—Cultivate and culti vate both ways. Don't be afraid of hurting the alfalfa. There is nothing equal to a spring-tooth harrow for cultivating alfalfa. It destroys the weeds and especially blue grass which is alfalfa's greatest enemy, and forms a mulch, keeping the ground from get ting hard. Cultivate In the fall ; cul tivate early in the spring; cultivate after each cutting except after the first cutting in the spring when you won't have time. Begin cultivating the sec ond season after sowing. 2. When to Cut Alfalfa.—Cut when the little shoots or buds begin to start at the base of the plant. This is Important and especially for the first cutting in the spring. When the buds or shoots start that means that all the strength is going to the new shoots for the next crop. If we delay cutting until these shoots have grown up so that we cut them off, we will cut two crops of alfalfa and get but one. Keep your eye on the little shoots—never mind the blossom. PLAN TO RID SHEEP OF ALL PARASITES Drench of Copper Sulphate Has Been Found Most Satisfactory at Ohio Station. Sheepmen having flocks Infested with stomach and tapeworms may free the animals of such pests by treatment before turning out to spring pasture. For this purpose a drench of copper sulphate has been found most satisfac tory in the flocks at the Ohio experi ment station. Two fluid ounces of a solution made by dissolving an ounce of copper sul phate (blue vitriol) in two quarts of water is sufficient for a yearling, and a two-year-old sheep needs three fluid ounces. A long-necked bottle or a rub ber tube and funnel may be used to give the dose. Most effective results follow when the sheep are fasted for a day both before and after treatment. Water should not be given for a few hours preceding and following the dos ing. Digestive disturbances, poor appe tite, loss of flesh and general weakness indicate the presence of worms. Lambs are most seriously affected. Ridding the sheep of worms in the spring will result In fewer losses in the lamb crop. Tobacco Kills Plant Lice. Be on the lookout for green aphis or plant louse on early cabbage plants. Fumigation with tobacco stems or spraying with ,nicotine preparations will destroy this pest. Fostering Agriculture.

Because more milk would be pro duced In the year and calves would be raised cheaper, farmers find it most profitable to have their cows freshen in the fall months. The cow gives a large flow of milk at the beginning of the period of lac tation. In the spring the milk yield, which gradually falls off, is suddenly Increased when the cow is turned on fresh pasture. Calves born In the fall need mainly milk and eat little grain during the period of winter feeding. When spring comes they are ready to be turned on pasture. Spring calves consume milk and grain during the cheap pasture season and require the same high priced feeds during the following win ter, when they are older and thus eat more. The fall-born calf at the same age needs only pasture. At the Ohio experiment station some calves born In the fall were raised for about $5 less than others born In the spring. Under average farm condi tions this difference would be even greater, as no grain would be fed to fall-born calves on pasture, while those at the station were given grain because of pasture shortage. "GENTLE"' BULL DOES INJURY Few "Don'ts" Given by Expert of Mis souri College to Be Followed in Handling Bulls. By W. W. SWETT, Missouri College of Agriculture.) Following are a few "don'ts" which can be followed to advantage In han dling a bull: Don't underfeed him when young or keep him overfat when mature. Don't use him too heavily before he Is mature. Don't abuse him. You can get bet ter results by gentle but firm handling. Don't tease him or allow children to play with him. Don't let him get the upper hand at any time. Don't let him realize his enormous strength. Don't keep him confined. Give him plenty of exercise. Don't trust any bull at any time. It is the "gentle" bull that does the damage. to CALF WEANER IS EFFECTIVE Device Arranged With Sharp Point Which Pricks Youngster's Nose-^ Can Graze Freely.

You cannot always buy good cows, but another way to get a good herd together is by keeping records of the production of each individual cow in your herd and saving the heifer calves from the larger producers. These calves being from a good registered sire and from selected cows, it will not take many years to build up a first-class herd. You can only know your best cows by continuous weigh ing and testing of the milk, and keep ing records of each Individual, so that some information may be secured as to the cost of production, which is growing more Important as the prices of feed stuffs and labor advance. by by L, CALVES GROWN ON SKIM MILK Cost Is Less Than Where Whole Milk Is Fed—Animals Make Better Gains in the Feed Lot. The cost of growing calves on skim milk was less than where whole milk was fed, or where the calves ran with their dams, and the sklm-milk calves made better gains when put into the feed lot than the others did, accord ing to some experimental work at the Kansas station. It cost $2.26 per 100 pounds gain on the calves fed on skim milk, $7.60 per 100 pounds gain on whole milk, and $4.41 per 100 pounds gain where the calves ran with their dams. When these same calves were put into the feed lot the skim-milk calves made the fastest gains and the whole-milk calves next. of Rough Cement Floors.

They age faster and the appeanance of gray hair or bald head in early years is, indeed, often a sign of uric acid. The face appears lean and haggard, lines and wrinkles appearing in young men or women. The best way to combat this prema ture age and the obstruction to the arteries and faulty circulation is of the simplest : Drink copiously of pure water between meals. This will not make you fat, as it is only the water taken with the meals that fattens. Obtain at aDy drug store a package of Anuric, double strength, which is to be taken before meals, in order to expel the uric acid from the system. The painful ef fects of backache, lumbago, rheuma tism, gout, due to uric acid in the blood should quickly disappear after treat ment with Anuric. Also Economical.
