To Throw Bodies on Manure Heap Is to Invite Spread of Disease— Small Crematory Is Within Reach of Poultry Man. (By R. PEARL.) On every poultry plant and around every farm there is bound to occur from time to time a greater or less number of deaths of chicks and adult fowls from disease or other natural causes. The disposal of these dead bodies offers a problem to the poultryman, the correct solution of which may In many cases become a very important matter. This is especially true in the cases of death from contagious dis eases. The method usually practiced by the farmer and poultryman for the disposition of dead carcasses is sani tary in the extreme. To throw the dead bodies on the manure pile is to Invite the spread of the disease. Bury ing is far from being a satisfactory way of dealing with the matter. Un less buried deeply, there is likelihood that dogs or other marauding animals will dig out the carcasses and scat ter parts of them on the top of the ground. The only really sanitary method of dealing with dead bodies is to inciner ate them. The difficulty of following this .plan is that the farmer usually does not have any suitable source of heat ready at hand at all times. To meet this requirement there has recently been devised by the experi ment station of an eastern state a small crematory, which in point of cost is within the reach of every poul tryman or farmer. This crematory is very simple in construction. It consists of a cement base or fire box, bearing on its top Crematory for Dead Poultry. a series of grate bars which are in turn covered by a cremating box or oven in which the material to be in cinerated is placed. In building this, place in the exca vation for the base a quantity of loose stones and gravel to insure ade quate drainage below the cement. The inside dimensions of the fire box base are 2 feet, 3 inches by 1 foot, 9*4 inches by 1 foot, 4 inches. The out side dimensions —3 feet, 4 inches by 2 feet, 6 inches. While the cement is still soft, place across the top some old grate bars, which form the grat-i on which the material to be burned is placed. The incinerating chamber is made of galvanized iron—length, 2 feet, 2 inches; width, 1 foot, 10 inches; height, 1 foot, 6 inches. In the top is cut a round hole protected by a hinged cover. The galvanized box has no bottom, but is placed on top of the grate bars and held firmly in place while the cement is worked up around its lower edges. In the back of this box is an opening for a piece of stove pipe. When not in use this pipe may be removed and stored in side the box. A large wooden box should be kept over the galvanized box, when the crematory is not in use, to protect it from the w’eather. PLAN SUCCESSION OF CROPS Not Advisable to Have Second Plant ing of Same Crop Follow the First—Keep Land Busy. In planning the location of crops, consideration should be given to the matter of succession, in order that the land may be occupied as large a part of the time as possible. It is not advisable to have a second plant ing of the same crop or a closely re lated crop follow the first. Cabbage should not follow cauliflower, brus sels sprouts, mustard, or kale, for many of the same diseases and insects affect all of these crops. Tomatoes, Egg-plants and peppers should not fol low each other. In some sections three or four crops can be grown on the same land each year, while in oth er sections two crops are all that can be grown to advantage. When a crop is harvested early in the season and j it is not practicable to plant another : vegetable for two or three months, the land may be planted to cowpeas or I crimson clover. For example, after a j crop of early cabbage it may not be i desirable to plant another vegetable ’ crop until late summer or autumn. In this case it would be desirable to sow cowpeas or crimson clover, to be turned under in preparation for the fall crop. Deficient Calf Ration. Many of the calves In the West are* fed a ration consisting of corn stover, prairie hay and sometimes some corn as a grain ration. Such a ration is de j ficient in protein, and the animals will not do well on it. But if good clover hay is substituted for some of the roughage in this ration, the animals will make good gains at a less cosL Approach of Foaling Time. With the approach "f foaling lime the grain ration of the mare should be decreased. Use feeds such as bran and roots, as they are valuable.

RIGHT ATTENTION TO COLTS Good Work Horses and Mules Will Bring Remunerative Prices for Several Years to Come. Horse owners cannot afford to give their colts indifferent care. There is every indication that good wmrk horses and mules will bring re munerative prices for several years. The demand for army horses is taking a large number of light weight ani mals out of the country. Most of Prize-Winning Filly. these will be replaced ultimately by heavier horses better suited for heavy farm work. The size and value of the mature animal depends to a large extent on the feed and care it gets during colt hood. It pays to give the colt a chance to make the most of its in herited possibility of development, for an extra 200 or 300 pounds make a striking difference in the selling price of a work horse or mule. The maximum development is pos sible only when the colts are handled carefully and fed well during the first tw’o or three years of their lives. PROVIDE BEES WITH WATER Place Fountain Near the Hives— Honey Secured From Goldenrod and Aster Is of Rich Flavor. (By B. L. PUTNAM.) When you see the bees clustering around the watering trough just pro vide them a fountain near their hives. This will save time for them and there will be no more drowned bees and horses and other stock will not be stung as they come from the field, heated and perspiring—a fit mark for the angry bee. Surround a board of convenient size w’ith a narrow cleat an inch high, making the shallow trough water tight. Over this tack a piece of wire screen, being careful to leave no sharp edges that will hurt the bees. Fill with wat~ and note the enjoyment with which the winged visitors flock and drink with no possibility of find ing in it a fatal draft. They will drink lots of water now, and if you do not furnish the pure stuff they will hunt out the nearest cesspool for moisture they must have. Do not worry if your fence row is bordered with goldenrod and aster. You may not be impressed with the esthetic effect admired by your city cousins, but the bees revel in the sweets afforded and will, from the weeds, extract a supply of honey that will go a long way toward piecing out their winter store. Beside, golden rod honey, when it can be secured in quantity, is food fit for kings, being of a rich amber hue and of superior flavor. Remember that honey must ripen before it is ready for market. When first made it is thin and watery but after two or three weeks it acquires the consistency necessary to the first class product. Conversely, if kept in a damp place it soon gathers moisture and becomes seriously damaged. A cool, dry closet is preferable to the cellar for storing. WELL-BRACED LONG LADDER Weak and Dangerous Feature Over come by Wire Brace —Strength Added at Little Expense. Farmers who have occasion to use long ladders often find them weak and dangerous when set up at the proper angle. This can be overcome by a wire brace. Get a blacksmith to maka two V-shaped irons, and fasten them to the side sills with small bolts. Bore small holes through sills at each end Ladder Braced With Wire. Take two pieces of No. 9 w*re and fasten to the sills at one end by pass ing through the holes and forming a lock by turning the end back through the holes over small iron pins, then pass the wire over the V-irons, draw ing them tight with a lever and fasten at the other ends in the same way. This brace will more than double the strength of the ladder and add but little expense. LEG WEAKNESS OF CHICKENS Generally Makes Its Appearance in Flocks Ranging From Three to Six Months of Age. Leg weakness in a fleck of half grown chicks is due to several causes. It generally makes its appearance in flocks ranging from three to six months of age, and the cockerels are more apt to be affected than the pul lets. One of the causes is the overfeeding of fat producing foods, the weight of the body being increased to such an extent the legs are unable to properly support the extra weight thus created. Poultry raisers bent on saving tima to bring their flocks up to broiler weight often overdo the forcing process to such a degree as to cause such dis ease. Protection for Padlock. To prevent a padlock from rusting take a piece of leather five inches long and four Inches wide. Tack it one inch from the top of the lock. Thas a flap is formed which thoroughly pro tects the lock from rain and snow. Grow Oats Successfully. You don’t always have to plow corn stubble ground to grow oats success fully. In case the field is reasonably clean the thorough disking of the ground before using the disk drill will be found satisfactory. WHAT THE OLD GRAY HEN SAW. “No,” said the Old Grav Hen, “I do not think the Duck knows a bit more about the world than I do, just because she swims. If it wasn’t for our Rooster, she wouldn't know wheth er it was sunset or sunrise.” “But she has traveled farther than you have,” said the Pig, raising her head from the muddy bed. "1 saw her swim across to the other side of the pond the other day.” “What if she did? I have walked away through the woods to the other side.” “She never could do that,” said the Rooster, who happened along just then. “Her feet are too large.” “And she never leaves the ground,” said the Gray Hen. “She cannot fly to the fence around your pen, Madam Pig. Whatever made you think the White Duck so wise about this world?” “Well,” said the Pig, “she told me that one day while she was sailing along on the pond she saw a turtle on the bank, and that it had a shell which it carried on its back all the time, and that when anyone went near it or it was afraid, it drew in its head and legs, and nothing could hurt it. Just think of seeing anything so won derful,” said the Pig. “Oh, that’s nothing,” said the Gray Hen. “I saw one myself, and I saw the dog bark at it, and the turtle snapped and caught him by the nose.” “You didn’t tell me!” said the Pig. “Did the dog shake it off?” “Not until the master pulled the turtle by the tail,” said the Hen. “Well,” said the Pig, “the Duck told me she saw an elephant one day on the other side of the pond.” “Oh, oh,” laughed the Hen, “that Duck is a quack.” “Well, I don’t know,” said the Pig, “but she seemed to know a great deal about the .world.” “The White Duck is an awful brag,” said the Gray Hen as she walked away, and she walked to the pond and looked across. “I really would like to see the coun try over there,” she said, “but I never can swim that is certain." Just then she saw a boat and she hopped on to the side. Then she saw a worm in the bottom of the boat and she hopped down to eat it, and the flog who had come along just at that moment stopped to get a drink and pushed the boat, and off it drifted into the mid dle of the pond. “What in the world has happened?” said the Hen, looking up from the worm; “why I am in the middle of the pond. What will I ever do? I cannot fly out of the boat, for I can not swim, and how will I ever get to the shore?” The boat drifted around with the Gray Hen perched on the seat. “Well,” she said, “I can see the oth er side of the pond and if there are any elephants I hope I shall see one.” Just then the boat bumped into a rock on the opposite side of the pond and the Gray Hen hopped out. “This is just like a trip across the world,” she said, stretching her neck and looking around. Shp walked into the woods and picked the berries she could reach and was quite delighted with herself as a traveler, when all at once she saw an animal sitting on a rock. It held something in its paws F=^lM ; raj L.;" " ~"^ “She Has Traveled Farther Than You.” which it would bite and then turn its head quickly from 6ide to side, and over its back was a bushy tail. “Mercy me,” said Gray Hen, “what is that? I wonder if that can be an elephant?” “Where did you come from?” asked the squirrel. “I sailed across from the other side,” Gray Hen answered. “I did not know that hens could swim,” said the squirrel. “I did not swim,’’ said Gray Hen; “I sailed across in a boat.” “Who is with you?” asked the squir rel, starting to run. “No one,” answered Gray Hen; “I came alone. The squirrel ran back to the rock. “Alone?” he said. “Can you ’sail’ a boat?” “You see I am here,” said Gray Hen, “and no one came with me. Who are you?” she asked suddenly. “Are you an elephant?” The squirrel was delighted to be mistaken for an animal so large, and he told her he was. "Where is your trunk?” she asked. “This is my trunk,” said the squir rel, waving his long bushy tail. Gray Hen stared with wide-opened eyes. “Well, I am glad to know you are no larger,” she aaid. “I thought you would be as large as a horse, any how.” A dog ran through the bushes and the squirrel scampered away. A man followed, and seeing the hen, he picked her up by her legs and walked toward the boat. \fter Tea. Teacher —Now, Harold, can you tell me what letter this is? Small Harold —No, ma’am.

If your uncle s sister is not your aunt wh-t relation is she to you? Your mother. WAUSAU PILOT “Here is luck,” he said, seeing the boat. “Jump in, Rover; we will row across.” When they reached the barnyard he threw the Hen out of the boat and away she ran to the Pig pen. “Madam Pig,” she called, “I want to tell you I have seen a great deal since I last saw you. I have sailed around the world and seen many queer things.” “You don’t say so,” said Madam Pig. what did you see?” “Oh, I saw trees with big berries growing on them, which I ate, and a great ocean, and I saw an elephant. Why, the elephant is not as large as you are, only he has a much larger trunk, as he calls it, but I thought it was his tail.” “Well, well,” said the Pig. “Madam Duck does not know as much as you do. She never could tell what he looked like. You certainly are a very wise hen.” So the Gray Hen was satisfied. The Pig thought her wiser than the Duck, .and she ran away to tell the others what she had seen. ARTIFICIAL CALL FOR BIRDS Sound Comes From Tube, Consisting of Hollowed Piece of Corncob— Handy for Hunters. What boy has not annoyed his schoolteacher and the girls in the room by the shivery sound made by scratching a slate pencil over a slate? A Virginia man has taken this simple principle as the basis of an artificial bird call that he has invented, and which sounds, it is claimed, like the cry of a wild turkey. A sound tube, consisting of a hollowed piece of corn- Artificial Bird Call. cob, has a stylus needle attached to one end. This tapers into a thin blade which has a rounded head at the lower end. The hunter takes a piece of slate or some similar substance and holds it in the hollow of his hand and against his thigh. He then draws the round head of the blade across it and the vibrations thus caused issue from the sound tube. With his thumb over the open end of the tube he regulates the sound. BULL PEN IS AMUSING GAME It Is Pastime Father and Grandfather Indulged in When They Were Boys—How It Is Played. How many of you boys know how to play bull pen? It is a game father and grandfather used to play when they were boys and just because it is so old, it’s probably new. You mark out a big square on the playground and have one boy stand at every cor ner. If there are many players and the square is large, you may put a player on the middle of every side also. As many players stand in the center of the square as are on the corners and sides. The boys on the corners throw the ball around the square once, then whoever has the ball throws it towards the center of the square. If he hits anyone, that player is out, and whoever gets the ball must throw it at someone in the square and try to put him out. When all but two of the players on either side are caught, these two go and hide for a moment. When they come back they have their hands behind them so the other players cannot see who has the ball. When a player gets close to the boy with the ball the boy hits him with the ball and he is caught. When all but one on a side is caught, that side is beaten. Wouldn’t Be Ignored.
