Circular Issued by Missouri Experi
ment Station Gives Results Ob-"
tained With Rye and Grain.
The feeding of ewes suckling lambs
is a factor which materially affects
the profit derived from the produc
tion of spring lambs. A circular just
Issued by the agricultural experiment
station at the University of Missouri
reports the work done with ewes
suckling lambs, fed on rye and blue
grass pastures. Ewes were placed in
four lots. In one lot ewes received
grain on rye pasture. Those in an
other lot received only rye pasture.
In a third lot the ewes were fed grain
on blue grass pasture, while those in
lot four received only blue grass pas
The grain for both ewes and lanrbS
.consisted of equal parts of crushed
<iorn, oats, bran and rape. The re
sults show that the feeding of grain
to ewes on rye and blue grass pasture
was not profitable, if the ewes were
to be kept. If the ewes were to be
marketed with the lambs, the feeding
of grain would have been profitable,
because the ewes which did not re
ceive grain became very thin and
were not in condition to sell on the
market, while these receiving grain
maintained about the same condition
of flesh throughout the experiment
There was little difference in the
.efficiency of rye and blue grass pas
tures for ewes suckling lambs. In
cases where grain was fed, the ewes
on blue grass had decidedly the ad
vantage, while in the other two lots
In which no {?rain was fed, the rye
had the advantage. The difference in
each case was small. Rye will come
a little earlier tn the spring than blue
grass, but will not afford as good a
pasture In Juno as blue grass, because
the rye heads and the sheep do noi
like coarse, woody stems.

How to select steers that will make
good gains and return substantial

Venture Which Was the Idea of the
Late Edward H. Harriman Is Like
ly to Spread to All the Lines
^of the Country.
As a result of the generosity and
far?ightedness of the late Edward H.
Harriman, a unique plan for the bet
terment of railroad employees through
out the United States has made rapid
progress in the last two years. This
plan, which Mr. Harriman conceived
and caused to be put into operation on
the Union Pacific railroad, was the
forming of an educational bureau,
through whose offices the employees
of the Harriman lines were offered an
opportunity to increase their capacity
to assume greater responsibilities to
fit themselves for promotion.
So successful has the venture
proved that officials of practically all
the railway companies in the United
Staten are considering the advisabil
ity of adopting similar methods for the
benefit of their own employees. As
.there are about 365 such companies,
employing some 1,800,000 men, the pos
sibilities for good, should this educa
tional work be extended to each line,
are enormous.
Through the agency of the educa
tional bureau, every man in the em.
ploy of the Union Pacific can, without
incurring any personal expense, avail
himself of the benefits of some thirty
courses of instruction,' covering vir
tually every branch of railroad work.
A central bureau has been established
, at Omaha, Neb., under the direction of
Mr. D. C. Bu ell, who has a score of as
sistants, including traveling represen
tatives, instructors, etc.
In the words of Mr. BuelL the rail
road ls creating a reserve supply of
better men, which will make it un
: necessary for the officials of the oper
ating department of the road to go out
side of their ranks for- men to fill re
sponsible positions, as was frequently
the case in the past The interest of
the employees themselves is indicated
,by the fact that in the first year of
the bureau more than 50 per cent of
them enrolled as students.
All instruction ls conducted by cor
respondence, thereby giving each em
ployee, no matter where he is located,
an equal opportunity to obtain the ben
! efits offered. The lessons are special
ly prepared, and are approved by the
heads of the departments interested
? before they are issued, thus putting
the stamp of authoritative Information
on each course.
After a man enrolls he receives a
set of lesson papers, including a
pamphlet that explains Just how to
proceed with his studies. Each lesson
contains a set of questions which the
student must answer in order to qual
ify on that leeson and proceed with
the next. .The answers are corrected
at the central office of the bureau,
and the report sent to the student, so
that he can ascertain whether he has
acquired an understanding knowledge
of the subject.
One of the best things about the
plan' is the fact that lack of previous
education does not prevent a man from
taking a course. Some of the courses
can be completed by anyone who can
read and write, while others require
a knowledge of simple mathematics.
In correcting the lessons, writing,
spelling, and punctuation are not con
The training of station helpers and
clerks is another important part of the
bureau's work. For this purpose there
has been established in Chicago, in
co-operation with the Illinois Central
railroad, a class room where young
men graduates - of telegraph schools
are received and given a practical
course in station and other clerical
work. Here they are enabled to fa
miliarize themselves with the actual
work they will have to do when they
enter the service. This course aver'
ages about four weeks, and when a
student has successfully completed it
he is immediately placed in a position
as station agent's helper. Three
months' acceptable service bx this
work leads to the position of sched
uled telegrapher,, and. from then on
promotion depends entirely upon the
man's ability and attention to duty -

Lamp Trimmers'-Safety Signal.
Arc lamp trimmers frequently find1
lt difficult to lower the arc lamp on a
busy street without the danger of hav

vehicles. The driver of a car ls more

to look up, and- sometimes the glare
of the sun will prevent him- from see

enough for his vehicle to hit IL Real

A New Model Typewriter
The Standcard Visible Writer
Yes, the crowning typewriter triumph is Kterel
It is just out-and comes years before experts expected it !
For makers have striven a life time to attain this ideal machine. And Oliver has won
again, as we scored when we gave the world its first visible writing.
There is truly no other typewriter on earth like tmVnew Oliver "ft.7 Think of

had the Optional Duplex Shift. It put the whole control of 84 letters and characters in the little fin
gers of the right and left hands. And it lets you write them all with only 28 keys, the least to operate
of any standard typewriter. Thus writers of all other machines can immediately run the Oliver Num
ber "9" with more speed and greater ease.
This brilliant new Oliver comes at the old-time price. It costs no
more than lesser makes-now out-of-date when compared with this
discovery. For while the Oliver's splendid new features are costly- -we have eqaulized tho added ex
pense to us by simplifying construction. Resolve right now to see this great achievement before you
spend a dollar for any typewriter. If yon are using some other make you will want to see how much
more this one does. If yon are using an Oliver, it naturally follows that yon want the finest model.

new-day features.
