Imagination Is the father of most of our troubles. mi m lift Barn for Mixed Farming. The farmer who can so adjust his work that he may dispense with the help of one man Is lucky Indeed, but many a farmer has done so by simply changing his system of feeding and caring for the stock; also by so dis posing of the grain and hay that in stead of hauling many tons of it to market It is fed on the farm, and the beef, pork, butter, cheese, etc., sold. This allows the farmer to restore to the ground at least a part of the fer tility in the shape of manure. The barn plan shown herewith In the two illustrations, the ground plan and the perspective view, is so ar ranged that one man may feed and care for the stock in a short time. As shown on the floor plan, the barn will accommodate 14 cows, 12 horses, has box stalls for both the cows and horses, also a large calf pen. The in stallation of manure carriers and hay fork is very easy, and these will soon pay for themselves in the labor saved. A feature of the barn not to be over looked Is the arrangement of the feed room and silo. The four-foot chute ex tends the entire length of the silo, and has small windows for light, a tight door below separating same from the feed room to keep out dust and odors. The silage Is dropped down this chute, and from there shoveled to the mixing boxes one for the cows and one for the horses. There are two bins in the feed room and two more may be located on the floor above and con nected by small spouts for drawing off the grain. These spouts may be located directly over the mixing boxes. All hay is supposed to be led from above, one hay chute being provided for each two stalls. The milk room being located as it is, the milk may be taken to it at once. In this room should be located the separator, also plenty of clean water; if possible running water should be provided. The shop is a very neces sary room, and it will save many small repair bills. In it may be stored the nails, bolts, etc. In the horse barn the harness room Is located in the center, which makes it handy to all parts of the same. The two box stalls provide room for both male animals as well as sick and ailing ones. The hay bay Is supposed to be open clear to the roof. However, some farmers may wish to arrange this space different. The partition separ ating the cows from the center sec tion is boarded or plastered up tight, excepting the calf pen, to separate the cows from any odors, dust or dirt from the other animals. The box stalls, however, in both the cow and horse barn are so constructed that the in mates may have a good view of the other animals. They like company, KEEP BOYS AND GIRLS INTERESTED Children Should Take Pleasure in Farm Life. The accompanying picture shows one way how the boys and girls of the farm may became interested and take pleasure in farm life and its sur roundings. The young farmer is Mas ter Lewis Daniels with his trained steers which he commenced to break Master Lewis Daniels when they were only three weeks old and which were so well trained when this picture was taken that he could drive them anywhere, either riding on the wagon or driving alongside. They have bocome so handy, and the driver as well, that they do lots of small Jobs on the farm, such as drawing wood from the pile where it Is sawed and split to the house sheds, carting feed to the chicken houses, gathering leaves to put in the pig pens and lots and will do better If they can see their neighbors. The floors of the cow stable, the milk room, feed room, and silo are of cement, the gutter being formed In the floor and having a four-Inch drain at the rear leading to the manure pit. The stalls are made to fit both long and short cows. The first stall in front is four feet wide and five feet long. The rear stall is three feet six Inches wide and four feet eight inches long. The stalls then slope from front to the rear, each stall being slightly shorter. Stalls are now con structed in so many different ways that it is hardly worth while to men tion them, every cow man having his own views of the matter. However, it Is wise to so build them that the stall may be easily cleaned and washed. This construction will com ply with all sanitary requirements of inspectors. The floor of the horse stable may be of cement or clay. The location, the local supply of materials, etc., will of course govern to a certain extent the material enter ing the construction of any building, and, in fact, all buildings. The barn Ground Plan. as shown is 12 feet to the eaves and 38 feet to the peak; the silo is 3S or 40 feet high. The barn should of course have a good foundation of stone, brick or cement. On many farms it has been the practice to build a small shed here and there and the stock is scat tered all over the farm. This causes an unnecessary lot of labor to care for them; also an unsightly appear ance to the surroundings. In construct ing a barn of this sort It will not be necessary to do all the work before the same may be used, but a portion of it may be left until time and per haps your purso will allow It to be finished. of other little things that save time on the busy farm of which he Is a mem ber. The young farmer, although only nine years old, takes such an active interest in th dairy herd kept on this farm that he has become so skilled as to have charge of the feeding of the twenty or more head of calves and young stock, that the owners only deem It necessary to give them occa sional oversight. I believe this Is one of the best ways to keep the boys in terested and when the steers have grown too big and old for them to han dle, If they are sold, the money should and His Trained Steers. bo placed In the bank to their credit, and the future will hold for them a strong tendency to remain upon the farm.

Alma College Interesting items taken from the newsy Almanian. FRESHMAN EXHIBITION. Tlia annual Freshman Exhibition made its how to the public Thurs day evening in the College chapel. As usual the Freshmen wound up the class exhibitions with a display of talent that made the other classes sit up and take notice. A program containing at once oratory music and comedy varied to suit the most exacting proclaimed the fact that the indomitable Freshman is al ways there with the goods, if you only give him time to get on his feet. The work of the exhibition establishes still further the fact that the professor of English speech is accomplishing wonders along his line of work. The program itself was divided into two parts, one consisting of oratory and music and the other dividing its attractions between comedy, music and oratory. The chapel was nicely tilled with an appreciative audience and every effort on the part of the performers was heralded with applause. Proud papas and mamas were on deck to cheer their hopeluls along and none were disappointed in the showing made. A Fairy Tale, (for two pianos) Seeboeck, introduced the program and was excellently taken care of by Miss Ransom and Miss Wilson. A vocal solo, Sunrise and Sunset, by Miss Pollard was sung with pleasing effect. Orations by Miss Mills and Mr. Carson whose subjects were: A Vision of War, and A Tribute to Lincoln, respectively were given with marked enthusiasm. Both held their audience well, to the finish. Miss Hood sang, With the Dreams of May, in a charming manner. Three more orations, The Present Crisis, The Nations Heroism, and Some Fallacies of Militarism, given by MissShoecratt, Mr. Montague and Mr. Aldrich re spectively completed the first half of the program in tine style, each speaker getting his full share of applause, some even before they opened their lips to speak. Two characteristic piano soloes played by Miss Kirby started the second half of the program in good shape. An oration Toussaint L'Ouverture, given by Robert Cook, followed, and was in no wise a lowering of the standard of ex cellence already attained by the class. A clever bit of eloqution 7 "Ginevra" was produced by .Miss Hahn in faultless style. Then came the comedy of the evening in the form of a play known as Ingomar. It involved a pretty plot where by a savage barbarian, Ingomar by name, in spite of his manly protests fell victim to the wiles of his fair cap tive, Parthenia, and allowed her father, Myron, to be released. The parts were excellently taken and plainly demonstrated that no amount ot work had been spared to make it a success. The work of Mr. Blaske as Polydor deserves special mention. The characters were: Ingomar Fred Dickinson Polydor D. Royal Blaske Myron erne C. Snell Parthenia in act l...Vinnie Boothe Parthenia in act 2... Carrie Neilson Actea Laura Brown A vocal solo (a) Tell Me, and (b) Stolen Wings, artistically rendered by Miss Day, completed a most successful exhibition. The Senior Academy class, break ing loose from all previous custom, entertained the Freshmen royally at Wright Hall after the exhibition. ALUMNI. Norman A.
