Lame Mule
il HAVE a mule that Is lame In his left hind
I lug lie walks on his tiptoe and when ho
goes up hill he Is n great deal lamer I havo
had him examined by several of mv neigh I
bors and they say ho Is stifled Ho has been
lame for about six weeks and If he Is stifled
can you tell what to do for him Subscriber
Reply people have a false Impression as
I to tho right meaning of tho term stilled
I and In a majority of Instances It Is wrongly
applied When a horse Is stilled the patolla
II knee cap of the stifle has become dislocated
t out of place and In such n condition the
I hind leg Is thrust backward with the hock
I Joint almost In a straight line and tho leg
cannot be advanced until the patella Is re
turned to Its place In partial or temporary
dislocation pseudo luxation of the patola
tho cap slips out and In as tho animal walks
I The latter condition Is commonest In large
tall fastgrowing weakmuscled colts A
ll ter applied to tho region of the sllllo to
gether with a six weeks rest may stop the
trouble In true dislocation tho leg has to
be pulled forward and upward and the patel
la forced back to Its proper position Into
which It will snap suddenly with a clicking
noise as soon as the pails arc In proper po
sition for that to occur In tho case of your
mule the symptoms do not point to luxation
of the patolla We suspect that the hock Is
the scat of the lameness To test as to that
have tho mulo led out to halter Have a mar
ready to trot the animal forward when toad
to do so Pick up the foot 6f tho affected leg
nnd hold It toward the mules belly so as o
lightly close the hock Joint Hold tho leg in
that position for two or three minutes then
drop It and Instantly have mule trotted for
ward If the hock Is the seat of the lame
ness the animal will go on three legs or nt
least much lamer than before In hock lame i
ness the animal generally starts out lame
mill warms out of ho lameness with exer I
cise If the hock Is he cat of the lameness
it spavin Is the probable cause and that
would necessitate firing and blistering of tho
hock and a six weeks rest tied up short In

about tho head and neck and not at tho rear
of tho body Soak tho affected parts once
dally with a creamy mixture of sweet oil
and flowers of sulphur and the hair will
grow out In time If tho roots have not been
destroyed Give the tall a thorough washing

Poultry a Profitabl Farm Side Line
N FORM years the poultry on the farms
I was of so little Importance that not much
attention was paid to It Later poultry
products have been consumed In ouch large
quantities prices have been sustained at high
figures and the business has grown to s > ich
a magnitude that all can tako pride in It
Tho prollts are sufficient to encourage all
I who are so situated as to bo able to keep
poultry to do so for thcro Is a ready mar
ket for all that can be produced
During tho last few years the poultry
products In the United Slates havo brought
more than tho wheat more than the beef
cattle more than the mutton sheen or the
greatest of meat producers the hogs The
amount received for poultry products Is only
second to the amount received for dairy
products Notwithstanding tho great In
crease In production of poultry and eggs thC
prices for tho last three months have boon
so high that they were almost prohibitive
The ordinary laborers family must be re
stricted to necessities for culinary purpose
Eggs at 10 to DO cents per dozen and diessed
chickens at from 25 to 30 cents per pound
mean that both eggs and chickens must bo
used only us an occasional luxury and not
as a constant article of food For consum
ers to bo obliged to pay from 2C to 30 cents
per dozen for hens eggs for Easter seems
very unusual
For use on the farm as a homo SHDI V of
meat the poultry supplies are among ho best
and most economical for general urr that
can bo had Eggs with side pork for break
fast or bacon make a good palatable food
that will sustain the work hand through tho
long forenoon Then smoked ham and eggs
for dinner arc both palatable and nutritious
Such food Is both savory and rich enough
to meet the requirements of the most exact
Ing and fastidious
On tho farms hack and away from tw
towns there are times when business men
drop in unexpectedly or company conies
without previous announcement Then the
egg basket and chicken roast nmko good ma
terial with which to set before ones friends
a meal tis good as the hind affords The meat
of the chickens and tho eggs or the money
for them often help the farmers wife out wf
many a tight place
The business of poultry raising on the
farm need not and docs not generally fall
upon the farmer himself Ho has other du
ties to attend to and Is generally willing to
give It over to other members of the fanny
Very often tho good wife makes a great lilt

Sparrows Eat Seeds 0 I
THE natural diet of the English sparrow
consists of seeds but It eats a great va
riety of other foods While much of its
annual fare consists of waste material from
the streets In autumn and winter It con
sumes quantities of weed seed and In sum
mer numerous imiecls The destruction of
weed seed In undeniably in the sparrows
I favor Its record as to Insects Is not so
clear Tlicro Is substantial evidence that It
eats certain harmful Insects quite freely I
I when these uro abundant but that It habit
ually seeks Insect or that It prefers thorn
to seeds or other vegetable food la not borne
out by the evidence Out of C22 English
sparrow stomachs examined fortyseven
contained noxious Insects fifty contained
beneficial Insects and thlrtyono contained
Insects of little or no economic Importance
I This report shows conclusively that asldo
from the destruction of weed seed there Is
very little to be said In the sparrows favor
Tho sparrow destroys small fruits as
cherries grapes pears and ptaclee It also I
destroys buds and flowers of cultivated trees

a good many men who have made a success

This Is How Corn Roots Look at Silking Time
In rotation of crops as well as in their cultivation the roots should be given
especial study There is as much difference in form of growth in the plant under
ground as that exposed on the surface Corn is a mediumdeep rooting plant and the
depth of roots is influenced by the method of soil preparation Deep plowing and shal
low cultivation arc two good rules to follow Too deep cultivation cuts the roots
and limits the supply of food elements

dice and from what 1 havo learned from tho
experience of others I believe much may be
accomplished to prevent the ravages of thchn

only Iho beat seed and strongest plants and
giving the very best culture The weakest
plants as well as the woakobt and bully

Variety of Crops Spice of Soils
1IE first thought of every worker is that
THE profit but the farmer should look a
little further into the future than men In
other pursuits His profits depend upon the
productiveness of his soil and ho should
therefore practice such methods of culture
as will not only conserve fertility lut In
crease Its productiveness Land Is Increas
ing In value labor costs more and farm ma
chinery Is more expcnsUo consequently
larger crops must be grown to assure profits
Prom experience we have learned that to
keep up the fertility of our tolls a variety of
crops must be grown and a system of rota I
tion followed that will Improve and maintain
the proper physical condition of the soil If
we can Improve the texture to such an extent
that It will appeal like virgin soil we will bo
assured of good crops even In unfavorable
Some kgumlnous crops should be grown
In this rotation for cover crops as the
legumes have that property that enable them I
to obtain nitrogen from the air No rotation
of crops Is complete without returning to Up
land the major parts of the crops grown upon
tho land after having been fed to sonic kind
of live slock
If these statements be true and I think
you will all agree that they nrc then only
by practicing diversified farming can we
keep up the fertility of our farms and If wo
cannot maintain and Improve tho fertility of
our farms then fanning Is a failure
We should diversify our crops to the ex
tent that labor may he economically em
ployed throughout the whole season This
applies as well to the use of teams and tools
Help that Is employed regularly Is moro pro
ficient and usually of a better character
With regular hours for work and reasonable
time for recreation tho help on tho farm will
lie satisfied with life on the farm This Is as
true of tho boy on the farm and of fully as

Replaces the oldstyle and Insanitary boa
mangers and partitions with the proper kind
of feed troughs ties and stalls
Installs a litter carrier running from ono

Takes extra precautions to sec that his
dairy barn is properly ventilated and lighted
Puts his milk on the market dean rather I
