Some Breeding and Feeding.
In general the aim should be to breed
for great prolificacy, more vigor and
better motherhood many of the fine
bone, short, chunky lard types are not
only shy breeders, but lack of prolifi
cacy. Careful selection and feeding
can correct these faufts without, any in
terchange of foreign blood. The ideal
brood sow must necessarily be some
what rangy, long of form, deep of body,
and only moderately thick. In order
to secure the desired vigor more ma
tured animals must be used in breed
ing, and the nutrition of these must
be supported by more nitrogenous and
succulent food. Among farmers the
practice of breeding young sows at an
!arly age is too prevalent, frequently
bllowed by discarding these as soon as
wo or three successive litters have
"Jen produced, regardless of perform
Past experiences have strongly im
pressed us with the fact that swine ra
ions are greatly improved by the addi
tion of succulent material, no matter
rhat the gain factors may be. By com
bining sugar beets with grain rations
the following results were secured,
Viz.: (1) Grain only to produce a pound
of gain, 5.32 pounds (2) grain with
beets to produce a pound of gain, 4.29
The cost per pound increase with
grain was only 3.33 cents with grain
and sugar beets, 2.85 cents. While the
value of sugar beets, carrots and man
goes is apparent in the fattening ra
tion, they are ouite as useful in the
maintenance ration. In economic pork
production too much attention cannot
be given to the production of forage
crops. There are few forage crops that
will produce results except when one
third grain ration is fed in conjunction.
Within the corn belt the only safeguard
against the entire destruction of our
herds by decrease is to introduce more
protein r.ncl succulent feeds into the
ration. I

•B any necessity for explaining it
when it is a fact. That it does increase
is enough to know to all intents and
purposes, says the Iowa Homestead.,
Grasses draw on subsoil as well as
surface soil for exisitence. The
grass grazed by sheep is employed to
produce wool and mutton and a large
part of the fertilizing properties go off
in the waste. The same maybe said
of other stock and at the same time
the distribution of manure by sheep
is such as to be without waste so far
as its fertilizing properties are con
We have given this matter much
study and wc know no better way to
present it to our readers than to give
a few extracts from a well known au
thority on sheep. Professor Thomas
Shaw, as lie has given it to the
American Sheep Breeder. The follow
ing are a few extracts on this theme:
"The grasses draw food elements
from the subsoil as well as from the
surface soil. The growth resulting
from these is consumed by the sheep.
It is deposited again on the land in
the droppings hence the available fertil
ity for producing grass continually in
creases. Theoretically, the plant
food in the subsoil decreases, but as
fast as it does, through the action of
various agencies, insert plant food into
the subsoil is transformed into avail
able forms. Theoretically, the
amount of this insert plant food de
creases, but usually there is so much of
it in the subsoil that the transforming
process will continue as long as decay
continues in the subsoil, which is
practically forever. The surface soil
therefore, continually improves when
it is being pastured by sheep, and
with such improvement the growth and
dceay of grass roots near the surface
also increases all The while. Why then
do not these results follow the grazing
of cattle? For the reason, chiefly that
the droppings of cattle are deposited
in a way that results in much waste
of the same form from various causes,
while the droppings of slieep are so
deposited that there is but little
"But little experimenting has been
done with a view to obtaining infor
mation as to the influence of such
foods on grazing, or as to the profit
from feeding them. But when these
foods are so fed by way of supplement
ing pastures, no statements regarding
the results from feeding them will be
at all complete, which do not consider
the influence which they exert on the
pastures. The retiovation of worn
lands could be greatly hastened by
such a process. And here It may be
added that when these foods are fed
judiciously it should be possible to
get. the full value of the foods thus
fed in wool and mutton.
"But sheep benefit pastures in other
ways. Suppose the pastures are grow
ing weeds or brush to a considerable
extent, grazing these .with sheep will
check such growth, and in the end it
will comp'etoly remove it, with, in
some instances, a little aid from man.
There are but few weeds which sheep
will not eat when they are young. But
there are some. These are burdock,
mullein and some others. To com
pletely get rid of these it may be nec
essary to mow them or destroy them
otherwise, but with the exceptions re
ferred to the pastures will soon be
made clear. This means that the ele-

"Thus it is that the influence of
sheep on production is simply benefi
cent. It is surprising that in the face
of this fact they are not more general
ly kept upon the farm. One reason is,
doubtless, that their value for such a
use is not more generally known. The
Gauls would have been in Italy long
before they were had they known
about its wealth. Another reason is
that in computing the profits from
kee»ins hef.','
th: »em of the influ-
ence on fertility is entirely left out.
And a third reason, especially in prai
rie areas, is the extent to which fences
are absent."

Testimonials from People Who Have Been Cured or Greatly
Benefitted—No Charge for Examinations,
There is not another office in the
city of Ottumwa that is visited by
more people in a day than Dr. Guth
rie's. From the time he arrives at
the office in the morning until
lie leaves in the evening there is one
continual stream of patients passing
in and out of the office. Many of them
h'eard of his wonderful success at
Streator, where he was formerly
located, and when tliey learned
through the columns of the press that
lie was to locate here permanently,
they were not slow in taking advan
tage of the opportunity to be treated
by an eminent specialist.
A number of people who have, visit
ed him have been told frankly that
their cases were incurable and no fee
was asked. But the tnajority of cases
the doctor has treated, and not a
single one has been heard from that
he has not benefitted and many of
them cured.
People who have been sufferers of
catarrh for years have been greatly re
lieved by one traetment, and 'are loud
in their praises of the advanced meth
ods used.
Catarrh is a disease that it takes
time to dispose of, but any case that
the doctor accepts, he guarantees a
cure. He has made this disease a
study for years, and can tell in five
minutes whether a case can be cured.
It is no experiment with him. If you
are afflicted with catarrh call at his
office and he examined free of charge.
Unlike all other specialists, his
charges are' very moderate, in fact
they are less than those of your fami
ly physician. He always tells a pa
tient before treatment is commenced
what the maximum cost will be.
