PAGE NINE. PURDUE REPORTS OU EXPERIMENTS Hundreds of Farmers Are Co operating With the Station. HAVE DONE GREAT WORK BREEDING AND DAIRV DEPART ' MENT8 HAVE INTERESTED MANY ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN VERY NUMEROU8. Washington, Oct. 2. Arthur Gobs, director of the agricultural experiment station at Lafayette, has forwarded to the department of agriculture a report of the activities of that station during the last year. Hs mentions that the station's new building, has been com pleted, and expresses pride in the fact that he has the largest building in the United States exclusively devoted to experiment station work. In telling of what the station accom plished the last year, he says : "The Investigation of rust was actively pro secuted and a large amount of mater ial and data were collected from dif ferent parts of the country. The life histories of a number of species were worked out. The work on hog cholera was Along lines approved by the con ference of department and station vet erinarians held at Ames, la. The vir ulence of different strains of virus is being determined and studies are be ing made regarding the actual relation of the hog cholera bacillus to the disease. In the Investigation of the moisture content of butter, examin ations, including ' a large number of fat analyses, were made of all the but ter made In the college creamery. The fats were churned separately and the moisture content noted in its relation to the nature of the fat. The effects of different churns, size of churning, temperature of cream, size of fat gran- AGONY OF ECZEMA BEYOND WORDS Whole Body. a.

It broke out on my head and kept spreading until it covered my whole body. I was almost a solid mass of nores-from head to foot. I looked more like a piece of raw beef than a human being. The pain and agony I endured seemed more than I could bear. Blood and pus oozed from the great sore on my scalp, from under my finger nails, and nearly all over my body. My ears were so crusted and swollen I was afraid they would break off. Every hair in my head fell out. I could not sit down, for my clothes would stick to the raw and bleeding flesh, making me cry out from the pain. My family doctor did all he could, but I got worse and worse. Mv condition was awful. I did not think I could live, and wanted death to come and end my frightful sufferings. "In this condition my mother-in-law begged me to try the OtHcura Rem edies. I said I would, but had no hope of recovery. But oh. what blessed re lief I experienced after applying Cuti eura Ointment. It cooled the bleeding and itching flesh and brought me the first real sleep I had had in weeks. It was as grateful as ice to a burning tongue. I would bathe with warm water ant Cutioura Soap, then apply the Ointment freely. I also took Cuti oura Resolvent for the blocd. In a short time the sores stopped running, the flesh began to heal, and I knew I was to get well again. Then the hair on my head began to grow, and in a short time I was completely cured. I cannot praise Cuticura enough. I wish I could tell everybody who has eczema to use Cuticura. My condition was so terrible that what cured me cannot fail to, cure anvbodv of this awful disease. If any cne doubts the truth of this letter, toll them to write to me. Mrs. Wm. Hunt, 135 Thomas 8t., Newark, N. J., Sept. 28, 1908."

"In the department of agronomy the results of rotation and other plant ex periments on the station farm, which have been running about twenty years are to be summarized. The breeding experiments with wheat, corn and oth er crops are being extended. Twenty experiments carried on la different parts of the state indicated that win ter barley Is likely to be a good crop for Indiana. Experiments with 6oy. beans with reference to seed ' produc tion gave relatively large, yields. The use of soy beans to mix with corn is increasing in the state. The use of al falfa is also rapidly growing. Some 800 farmers are co-operating with the station Jn experiments with different crops. Crop rotation and fertilizer ex periments are being made in co-operation with the chemist in southwestern and southeastern Indiana. In Hamil ton county the comparative efficiency of corn cultural implements is being tested. "In the department of horticulture and forestry the experiments in spray ing melons were continued in the re gion south of Vincennes. Increasing attention is being given to the diseas es of watermelons and cantaloupes. The onion industry in the northern part of the state is bing investigated, as well as problems connected with the canning and shipping of tomatoes. Experiments were undertaken with pecan trees - in southern Indiana, where these nuts grow wild but have not been cared for. The growing of catalpas and black locusts is being encouraged. Animal Husbandry. "In animal husbandry the experi ments with beef cattle included (1) ! influence of age, (2) value of silage, (3) use of concentrates, especially cot ton seed meal, and (4) long versus short feeding periods. New lines of work are experiments to determine the requirements of brood sows and the feeding of pigs from weaning time up to 250 pounds on rations varying from part middlings up to nearly all corn. "In the dairy department much at tention was given to studies of con densed milk. A report on this sub ject was issued, but it is felt that fur ther experiments are required. "In chemistry, in addition to the co operative experiments with the agro nomists, much analytical work was done on soils and in connection with plant breeding ani dairy investiga tions. "The state chemist's office, located at the station, is doing a large amount of work in fertilizer and feeding stuff control. The law i elating to feeding stuffs went into effect in 1907, and has proved very successful. "The present policy is to organize the station business as far as possible separately from that of the college of agriculture. The director and a num ber of station officers and special as sistants are wholly employed in sta tion work. The use of the new sta tion building will complete and em phasize this separation.

Time Honored Musical Instrument Needs No Improvement. One of the comparatively few things that the hand of Improvement has not touched is the cowbell, which Is made now just as it was a hundred years ago. Cowbells are made some of cop per and some of a composition metal, but most of them are made of Iron and finished with a coaling of bronze. The cowbell is not cast. It Is cut from a sheet of metal, which Is fold ed Into shape and riveted. The metal loop at the top through which the strap Is passed is riveted into the bell. The bells, are made of ten sizes, whosa sounds range through an octave. Sometimes musical entertainers h- play upon bell of one sort and anoth er come to the i.-anufaclurer and b.v selection among beils of the varirt; sizes (ind eight belis that are accura.f iu scale. There are only a few factories iu the United States in which cowbells are made, and iu each case the cow bell Is only an item of production among many other things. Cowbell are sold all over the country just the same as ever, but much of the greater number are sold iu the south, the southwest and the west, where farms are larger, less likely to be fenced and cattle are more likely to stray.
