Affection Is Common Among Chickens
.and ls Caused b> an Ex
tremely Small Mite.
Scaly leg of poultry is a common
aad well-known affection of chickens
that sometimes causes affected birds
to become worthless. It is caused by
an extremely small mite that works
in and under the crusts that form on
the legs. Caraway or sulphur olnt
ment will kill the pests. Scales form
Bad Case of Scaly Leg.
-at t&e point of invasion of the insect,
and under them the skin Is irritated
and bloody. Badly affected birds
walk with difficulty, and > may even
lose a toe; later they become thin,
lose their appetites and prove worth
To treat scaly leg the feet and legs
?of affected fowls are held in warm
water for several minutes, so that the
.crusts are softened and can be re
moved.' A mite killer fs then applied
to the dry diseased surface. The fol
lowing mixtures are recommended: 1.
O? of caraway, mixed in four times
as much lard or vaseline; or 2, flow
ers of sulphur, one dram; carbonate
of potash, 20 grains ; and lard or vas
eline, half ari ounce. Some poultry
men-have used a. mixture of one part
of kerosene and two parts of raw lin
seed oil ^with speedy effect. The legs
of the affected fowls are dipped in
this mixture, care being taken that
the feathers are not wet.
District of Columbia Poultry Farm
Reports Excellent Results From
Waste Material.
A poultry farm In the District of
Columbia which handles about 1,000
fowls reports excellent results from
the use of well-selected garbage. This
material Is hauled twice a day and
fed to the birds about ten o'clock In
the morning and again during the
middle of the afternoon so that the
table scraps are fed. fresh only two
or three hours after they are discard
ed from the kitchen. The feeding
method of this poultryman Is to scat
ter the garbage on the grass in such
.quantities that the fowls will clean up
all the refuse. He rotates these feed
ing spots In Such a way that no con
tamination results. The outstanding
feature of the success of this poultry
man is centralized in his painstaking
selection of the garbage and the elim
ination of all objectionable material.
Profitable returns have resulted
also from the feeding of garbage to
fattening cockerels and old hens. A
small flock of turkeys is maintained
on this farm and The gobblers gobble
thei^ way to a frbnt line position
?when garbage lunch time rolls around.
The turkeys keenly relish the table
scraps and abandon tender grasshop
pers and succulent alfalfa In order
to scamper to the feeding spots when
the garbage wagon approaches.
Besides Furnishing Supply of Eggs
and Meat for Family Some Can
Be Marketed.
Raise more chickens. Besides fur
nishing meat and eggs for the family
a good flock of hens will lay eggs to
sell. It costs little to get a good lock
started ; they live largely on waste for
a good part of the year and do not
require a large acreage of cleared land
for their keep.

like clean, fresh water.

Supt. Anti-Saloon League De
clares Certain Judges
Greatest Obstacle to
' Enforcement.
.New Orleans, Dec. 3.-That en
forcement of the eighteenth amend
ment is being hampered by certain
federal judges," Dr. Baker is quoted
try was the quoted declaration of Dr.
P. A. 3aker, general superintendent
of the Anti-Saloon League, who ar
rived here today to attend the law
enforcement conference of the
"The greatest obstacle to law en
forcement in this country at the pres
ent time is about 20 per cent of the
f ederal judges," Dh. Baker is quoted
as having said. "They are men who
ought to be impeached."
He declared that the Anti-Saloon
League had so far contemplated no
action in an attempt to secure im
peachment proceedings against judges
included in this category but added
"that the time is coming when con
gress will define just what is good
behaviour on the part of a federal
judge under which he could hold his
life tenure of office."
"About 10 per cent of these judges
are an absolute disgrace to the
bench," Dr. Baker is credited with
having said. "They protect bootleg
legs and men trying ito nullify the
law. Their sentences to these violators
simply breed more violations.
"If I had my way I would put the
federal judges who do not enforce
the law in the penitentiary at hard
labor. Other officials who violate their
oaths to enforce the law I would put
in the same place because they are a
menace to the country."
After declaring in his address that
20 per cent of the federal judges of
the country were obstructing enforce
ment of the prohibition law, Dr. Ba
ker said :
"These scoundrels who sit on the
bench, and I use the term advisedly,
assess fines on law violators which
are just like fishing a pickpocket,
and then turning him loose on the
crowd to collect the fine. I hold them
responsible for the shooting down of
300 splendid law enforcement officers
during the past year."
He declared that the public official
who does not keep his oath to enforce
the law is a perjurer and should be
"I would not take the places of
some newspaper editors and managers
on judgment day for anything in the
world for they are going to have a
hard time," he said.
"The eighteenth amendment is
nailed down and the nail, is the nine
teenth amendment which gave the
women the right to vote," he assert
ed. "The Volstead act will never be
changed for the congress just elected

J. A. White, Ohio superintendent
of the Anti-Saloon League also
spoke at tonight's' session.
Important Points in Eiutchering
Clemson College, Dec. 4.-Along
with the first cold spell come thoughts
of butchering time. Nim? important
steps iii killing hogs which make the
work easier and produce better pork
are suggested by D. T. Herrman, Ex
tension Swine' Specialist.
1. Select only those hogs which are
in good health and are gaining in
flesh. Hogs which are losing flesh
make poor meat. The weight and con
dition at which to kill depends on
whether you prefer large or small
cuts of pork and whether you want a
fat, or a lean carcass. Most farmers
kill heavy, fat hogs, but the packers
put a premium on hogs in medium
flesh weighing around 200 to 225
2. Keep the hogs off feed for at
least 24 hours before killing and keep
them quiet but provide them with all
the water they will drink. This clears
the system of food, facilitates bleed
ing, and lessens some danger in clean
ing. Hogs that are excited before
killing dress out a dark red carcass,
and if they are whipped or bruised in
any way, the bruised spote must be
trimmed out.
.3. In sticking avoid slacking the
shoulder, for this causes the blood to
clot and means a waste in trimming.
Place the hog flat on his back, make a
longitudinal incision in thc; neck, in
sert the knife 3 or 4 inche?, with the
cutting edge towards the breast bone,
raise the point of the knife up against
the breast bone and withdraw. Then
lay the hog on his side to bleed out.'
Do not drag the carcass over the
ground, as this bruises the meat.
4. Scald 1% to 2 minutes with
water 145 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
Water hotter than this makes the
hair set if the hog is left in water
more than one minute. Water much
cooler than this requires too much
soaking to loosen the hairs. If you
have no thermometer, stick your fin
ger into the water three times in rap
id succession. If the third time is a
little too hot for comfort the water

is about right. Remove the hair from
the legs, ears and head first as these
cool most rapidly. A teaspoonful of
lye or a small shovelful of wood ashes
to 30 gallons of water will help loosen
the scurf. Remove as much hair as
possible with the scraper, because all
hair that is shaved off will stand out
when the pork is cured.
5. In removing the intestines use
the left hand inserted between the
intestines and the mesi to guide the
knife and keep the intestines from be
ing cut.
. 6. Wash the carcass thoroughly
both ins-.de and out.
7. Either remove the leaf fat en
tirely or loosen it and allow it to
hang by the upper end. This facili
tates cooling.
8. Split the carcass down the mid
dle of the backbone-not on either
side as is often done, for this is a
needless waste--and on down through
the head. In the South it is a common
practice to cut the flanks away from
the hams, but in doing this care must
be taken not to cut into the ham.
These practices hasten thorough cool
9. Never cut up the carcass until it
has had time to cool thoroughly.
Hymns Taken From Rev. A. T.
Allen's Calendar of last
Hymn 729
All hail the power of Jesus' name,
Let angels prostrate fall!
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all!
Let every kindred, ev'ry tribe,
On this terrestrial ball,
To Him all majesty ascribe
And crown Him Lord of all!
Oh, that with yonder sacred throng
We at His feet may fall!
We'll join the everlasting song
And crown Him Lord of all!
Hymn 719
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee;
E'en though it be a cross
That raiseth me;
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.
Though like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone ;
Yet in my dreams I'd be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.
There let the way appear,
'Steps unto heav'n;
All that Thou sendest me,
In mercy given;

Nearer, my Cod, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.

Why Not Sell Cream This
Clemson College, Dec. 4.-Butter
of 92 score sold on the Chicago mar
ket November 25 for 53 cents per
pound. The creameries in South Car
olina are paying for cream on ap
proximately this Dasis, yet not many
of them are getting enough cream to
pay overhead expenses.
If you have 3 to 10 cows why not
sell cream to one of these plants?
asks J. P. LaMaster, ' Chief of the
Dairy Division, who says that you
can do so without expending much
money to start. Ten average cows
producing two gallons of milk each
per day will return you a cream
check of $100 to $120 per month at
present prices. Butter is not likely
to go mn ch lower in price before grass
comes next spring. Then of course
you can produce it cheaper and the
profits will range in about the same
proportions. A regular cream check
each month will fortify you and your
family against the losses due to the
ravages of the boll weevil.
When you realize that South 'Caro
lina needs 240,000 more milk cows
before it can furnish the dairy prod
ucts needed by the rural population,
it is evident that cream production
for butter-making can not be over
done for many, many years, even if
every farm in the state produces a
