A cold in the head is the first chapter
in the history of disease and death.
This has been so often repeated that
there are few people indeed who have
not witnessed many examples of it
A cold in the head is rarely severe
enough to confine a vigorous person to
the house. As a rule, it ends in recovery
without any treatment This has led
many people to regard a cold in the
head as of no importance. It is a terrible
mistake, however, to pass by a cold in
the head as a trivial matter. Each case
should be treated.
Those who have used Peruna for such
cases will testify unanimously that a
few doses is sufficient to remove every
vestige of the cold. How much better
it is to treat a cold in this way than it
is to allow it to go on and on for weeks,
perhaps months, leaving effects that
will never be eradicated.
Yet there are those who neglect to
take Peruna for a cold in the head.
This neglect is due to the false notion
that a cold in the head is hardly worth
A cold in the head is in reality a case
of acute catarrh. It ought to be called
so, in order to awaken people from
their lethargy on this subject. In a
large per cent of cases cold in the head
will end in chronic catarrh. Unless
properly treated with some such rem
edy as Peruna, perhaps 50 per cent of
cases of cold in the head will lay the
foundation for chronic catarrh.
A tablespoonful of Peruna should be
taken at the very first symptom of cold
in the head. Usually where the cold is
not very severe a tablespoonful of Pe
runa before each meal and at bedtime
is sufficient It may be necessary,
however, where the attack is more ser
ious, to keep strictly in the house and
take a tablespoonful of Peruna every
hour. Younger people, feeble or deli
cate women, should take a teaspoonful

A setting hen Is a perfectly reBpect
ible hard working matron, suffering
from an acute attack of spring fever.
She will not work, she refuses to lay
r even talk about it, and she devel
ops a very crabbed disposition In a
remarkably short length of time. Seek
ing out some chosen nest she takes
possession, by force, if necessary, and
proceeds to occupy It for about 23
hours and 25 minutes every day. She
leaves it secretly and In silence, only
when food Is necessary. Having sat
isfied her wants, she suddenly remem
bers that unguarded nest, and makes
tor It with great speed and confusion.
It matters not whether the nest con
tains eggs or a doorknob, it is dear to
her., and nothing will dislodge her.
There she will hold the fort until
her motherly longing Is satisfied In
a brood of little downy peepers. The
writer once hatched three successive
broods of chicks under the same hen,
the hen setting for 75 consecutive
days, and coming off the nest reluc
tantly and In good health at the end
of that time.
The best way ' to detect a broody
hen Is to look through the nests after
dark and see whether there are any
hens on them. If so, they should eith
er be brought up or placed on some
worthless eggs In the hatching quar
ters, as they do harm in the regular
laying pens by partially Incubating
eggs and fighting with all the other
Almost any concave nest, well lined
with hay, will do for setting a hen
Take a box, or barrel laid on Us side,
paint It Inside with carbollneum or
some other good lice paint, and form
the nest out of earth with two Inches
of hay covering it.
Be sure to get the corners filled so
that the eggs cannot roll Into them,
Have the edge of the box not over
three Inches higher than the eggs, so
that the hen will not Jump on them
Dust the hen with Insect powder, place
her on the nest on some dummy eggs,
and cover her with another, ventilated
box. Let her off in 24 hours, and If
she goes back again, It will be safe to
put good eggs under her.
Use an odd number of eggs, depend
lng upon the size of the hen and the
season. Thirteen In cold weather and
15 in warm, Is about right for

Keep whole corn and pure water at
hand and let the hen take care of her
self. The chicks usually begin
hatch on the twenty-first day. Let them
alone until the night of the twenty-
second day. Then move her and the
chicks to a warm, dry coop and do
not feed the chicks until the twenty-

The animals should be fed well and
wisely, as their subsequent improve
ment will result from feed, care and
selection. The sow should produce
two litters a year, about ten pigs the
first year, although often she will do
much better than that and sometimes
not so well. If she Is bred too young
or Is too fat at the time of breeding,
the first litter, at least, will probably
be small In number.
The breeder must know the type of
animal he desires and select with that
In view. If the offspring of a given
sire have predominating characteris

Cheapest Investment Farmer Can
Make Is Purchase of Pure Bred
Bull to Build Up Herd.
(By RAT P. SPEER, Minnesota College
It has been demonstrated again and
again that the cheapest Investment
that can be made by a farmer who li
trying to build up the standard of 8
herd of cattle lies In the purchase ol
a good pure bred bull. It Is not neo
essary to buy several high priced fe
males as a basis for the average herd
nor is It economical.
A striking proof of this has been
shown on the cattle show circuit at
various state fairs last fall. One ol
many Instances will suffice. Recentlj
a prominent state fair judge had tc
choose between two cows with the
same dam, but sired by different bulls
for the female championship of the
breed. So strikingly similar in type
was each of them to its own sire
though the dam was the same, that
there was no trouble in distinguishing
between the two. The one that had
been produced by the more outstand
lng sire was so superior to the one
that had been produced by the less su
perior bull that there was no trouble
about the selection.
The principle illustrated Is of prac
tical value to the farmer who Is think
lng of beginning a herd with limited
capital, or has a very common herd
that he desires to grade up. An aver
age group of calves will be far su
perior to their commonly bred mother!
if a good pure bred bull is used. Sucb
a bull can be purchased very reason
ably If proper care Is taken by the

one out of every six.
Range bred sheep are the right
kind for the average farmer to buy.
Such sheep will be grade Merinos and
If they carry a cross of Shropshire,
Lincoln or other mutton blood, so
much the better. It would not be ad
visable to buy Mexican sheep or low
grade sheep ot any other kind.
The ewes purchased for the founds
tlon flock should be good, large ani
mals from one to four years old, and
weighing more than one hundred
pounds. Where possible it would sel
dom be practical to start with lest
than 60 ewes, and a larger numbei
would be better still. A flock of a dor

Attention to These Small Details Will
Lighten Labor and Result in
When ironing small articles, such as
napkins and handkerchiefs, do not let
your Iron cool while you do the fold
ing. Iron a table napkin straight and
true and dry on the wrong side; lay
it aside and iron another and keep on
as long as your iron keeps hot enough.
Then place the iron on the stove and
pull the napkins with the hands and
you have the loose folds used by the
best housekeepers. Also the thread of
the linen stands out nicely on the
right side, as does any hemstlchlng
or embroidery that may be there. Lin
en towels should be done this way,
and the most common ones will look
wondrously fine, not to mention the
appearance of the best ones, says the
Washington Herald. '
Pillow slips being double, must be
ironed on the wrong side and laid
aside. When ready to put away In
boxes, fold In required size with the
hands. Fold your table cloths once
wrong side out, and Iron on botli siUes
of fold. Place Irons on the fire, then
fold tablecloth loosely. Treat linen
