FENCE PREVENTS WOLVEb
FROM DEVOURING SHEEP Best Protection Against Destructive Beasts Is Woven Wire Fence With Barb Wire Stretched Across the Top. In answering a query as to the best method of preventing wolves from de stroying a sheep flock, the Wisconsin Agriculturist publishes the following: Many bells on a flock of sheep will no doubt do good service toward keeping wolves off though they would not be proof against attacks from the bolder animals. A few well trained shepherd dogs would 6erve the pur* Wolf and Dog Proof Fence for Sheep. pose better and would make very ser viceable animals in other respects in helping to attend to large flocks. The best protection against wolves for the flocks, however, would be wolf-tight woven wire fence, with barb wires stretched at the top so as to prevent the wolves from getting over and into the sheep pastures. Such a fence must also be built close to the ground to present the wolves from digging their way through underneath. A barb wire stretched tightly along the ground line will be very serviceable In this respect. The woven wire fence should be at least as high as any farm fence ordinarily in use is, and pieces of 2x4's should be nailea or COMFORT FOR FARM STOCK Should Be Fed at Regular Times and Never Roughly Handled by Being Chased by Dog or Left in Cold. (By A. D. WILSON, University Farm, St. Paul, Minn.) One of our good dairy farmers, liv ing in Carlton county, who is also a Farmers' Institute lecturer, Mr. F. B. McLeran, in talking on "Care of Dairy Cattle," always emphasizes the Importance of making the stock com fortable. He 6ays that if they are made uncomfortable by being fed at irregular times, so that they spend a great deal of their time expecting to be fed, the discomfort shows in lower production. If they are made un comfortable by having a poor bed, by being roughly handled, by having a dog set on them, or by being left out in the cold or allowed to go thirsty, these conditions result In decreased production. He emphasizes the fact that one of the great advantages of weighing the milk every day, from each cow, is that it gives one a qntck check on any condition that brings about discomfort to his animals. If any cow shows a dropping off of her milk flow, as a rule a little observa tion w) show that she has been made uncomfortable in some of the wars mentioned above; and, knowing these factB, the farmer is able to check these unfavorable conditions quickly. One of the points that Mr. McLeran especially emphasizes is the import ance of not allowing the cows to st-'y out in the winter when they are un comfortable. He states that a good way to determine this Is to take off your coat and out in the yard with the cows, stand around and act Just as the cows do. When you begin to feel uncomfortable and feel like eoing Into the house, put the cows in the barn.

The accompanying illustra tion shows clearly how the fence is built. Such a fence is of service tc any sheep farmer who wishes an effi cient means of protecting his flocks against sheep-killing dogs as well as against wolves. High Prices for Horses. We may well doubt the prediction that the automobile will soon put thç horse out of business and reports from every section of the west show that well-bred animals are selling al $350 to $500 per pair. HOW ENGLISH RUN DAIRIES Cows Are Not Soiled to Anj Great Extent but Pasture Is Depended Upon for Entire Summer Feed. In England cows are not soiled tc any great extent but pasture is de pended upon for the entire summei feed. They say over there that 11 takes two acres to keep a cow goin? as she should. Early in August the cows are turned on the aftermath of the meadows and later changed back and forth between the pastures and the meadow. When taken off the pastures In late summer the cows are fei a little cot ton seed cake but they do not get much grain at any time. In the winter they are fed roots— 40 to 70 pounds per day, about 13 pounds of straw, half as much hay and about eight pounds of meal and oil cake mixed. The barn yards are paved with cob ble stones to keep the cows out of the mud and the manure is saved un der sheds. Not a thing is wasted. There are very few creameries in England and the butter on the mar ket is all farm butter but it is of fine quality, generally a great deal better than our farmers make. The prices for milk for the year averages about $1.50 per 100 puunds after the freight is paid. Many Goats in Country. It is estimated that there are over 2,000,000 goats in this country and all are practically free from tuberculosis. Thousands of them are milk goat3 and are used regularly for this purpose.

Every housewife should realize the possibilities of salt as a cleaner. In deed. salt and kerosene should be In the cleansing outfit of every house hold, for together they form a combi nation which eradicates almost any dirt. For polishing mirrors nothing can exceed the merit of salt. When apply ing it the glass must be wet with clear water, then the salt rubbed on with a damp newspaper. The final rubbing may be done with dry news papers or with a chamois skin. A tablespoonful of coarse salt, a teaspoonful of ammonia and a pint of hot water mixed and kept for rinsing decanters and carafes will make them as bright as new. Silver discolored either by egg or other use will respond at once to a vigorous rubbing of damp salt. Salt and vinegar combined will usually restore polish to brass and copper, and 6alt is a wonderful reno vator of polished wood surfaces that have been dulled with hot dishes. To brighten such spots cover the gray portions with salt, which is then wet with olive oil, all of the latter being poured on that the salt will absorb. This should stand for 24 hours, when it should be removed and the surface rubbed with a soft cloth. If all gray ness has not disappeared, repeat the salt and oil bath. For removing discolorations of fruit from teeth or hands salt is excellent. ©0*1)0 là M p Some one has given the following as the aims of domestic economy: To lessen housework by mechanical device and convenient arrangement.

DOCTORS ADVISED OPERATION DECIDED TO TRY CREAT KI DNEY REME DY I Want to tell you in a few words what your Swamp-Root did for me, believing that my testimony may do some other suf fering person a great deal of good. About six years ago, I was dangerously »11, consulted three doctors, all of whom said I had kidney trouble. One of the doctors analyzed my urine and reported that I had gravel, and further said that in order to regain my health and life, an operation would be necessary. I did not want to bo operated on as I was afraid that I would not recover, ßomeone told me of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root and said it was a reliable medicine for kidney trouble, so I decided to try it and went to Mr. Rose, the druggist, at 303 Central Ave., Minneapolis, and bought a bottle, took it, noticed results and continued taking it until I was entirely cured. Having been free from any kidney trouble for over six years, I consider that I am absolutely cured and know that Swamp-Root has the credit. I never fail to tell my friends about your remedy, as I believe it is the best of its kind. Your U & O Ointment is also very good. We are never without a jar in our house. Yours verv truly, MRS.
