Put It In the oven and parch it before feed ing. The pullets which are poor layers the first winter never amount to very much, and are not worth keeping over. The popularity of the show ring Is educating the masses to quality, and nothing but the best will Justify the breeding enterprise. There Is no more pitiable sight than a mare and foal standing in the open with their conts turned the wrong way and shivering with cold. Are there any water sprouts on those old trees? If so. get nfter them. You Just can’t afTord to have water sprouts living off of bearing trees. If the apples In the cellar are not keeping well the trouble may be too warm a temperature. The cellar should be kept Just above freezing for apples. A place should be petitioned off from the main part of the barn, where ewes that are expected to drop their lambs may be separated from the rest of the flock. with the ration. It may not possess much food value, but it pays every time Don's ask the stock to live on kindness alone, though. The old trees bearing valuable va rieties of fruits are very hard to re place and It takes many years to pro duce a young, bearing orchard that will properly take Its place. The ordinary farm bull does not re ceive the care that he deserves. Re member that he Is half the herd and often more, and that good care will pay, and pay well, in dollars and cents. Do not neglect work that may be done now with sleighs, such as har vesting the ice crop, getting up the summer's wood. etc. It is much easier and cheaper to do such work on run ners than on wheels. In order to secure uniformity In the fat contents of the cream aim at run ning the separator smoothly and at a speed as set out by the makers, the milk being separated at a temperature of 90 to 100 degrees. Try and be one that has fed a com bined ration of roughage, grain and «ots with plenty of water and you 111 have no worry about the ewes. The summer’s work and the feed Is largely wasted If the ewes lamb poorly. It is a mistake to think that horses at light work can be kept entirely on hay. Colts also require more grain and If left to grow up on straw and hay alone they never make as good horses as do those which are better cared for. To the man who has warm build ings and the time to look after fall pigs should keep a few old sows over, and let them raise two litters a year. The man who cannot do that would better keep to the young sows for a few years, and when his sows get smaller and fail to raise good litters, go to the other fellow and get new stock. It is a sad mistake for a dairyman to allow his cattle to become run down In vitality during the winter. The cow that goes out to pasture in a weak and run-down condition will require the best part of the summer to get back to her normal condition. SeH'-pweservation is the first law of an imal nCture, ana a cow that is In poor condition will put her fat upon her iback before she will put It in the pall. The well fed hog Is usually con tented. Out-of-season flowers can bo forced by treatment with either. In setting out trees remember It Is useless to plant dead roots. Bran Is an excellent substitute for succulence in the sow’s ration. Don’t leave a horse heated by driv ing to stand exposed in a cold wind. Never sell the best stock. You al ways need that kind In your business. When the calf is taken from the cow he must, of course, be taught to drink. Keep the poultry yards clean. Don’t have anything about that can breed disease. Read the nursery and seed cata logues and get In your order for trees and plants now. The breeder of to-day who succeeds must be a breeder, a feeder and an all-around stock man. Feed the brood sow protein feeds as much as possible, and avoid feeds rich in fat-forming elements. One cock to ten hens Is sufficient, and these should be separated until the breeding season begins. Never allow two or more cocks to remain in the same Inclosure with the hens during the winter. Provide a plank or cement feeding floor for the hogs. Keep it clean; it’s the hogs’ table, you know. Try shaving some young sweet corn, or even field corn, for the young chicks and see how they will go for it Keep ground charcoal before the poultry at all times. It Is good for indigestion and corrects sour crop. Don’t feed good food to poor lay ers and then grumble because there Is no profit in the poultry business. If It Is possible to make a good cow from a poor calf the extra cost will be more than the calf was worth at the beginning. The loss of condition at weaning time may be greatly reduced if the * pigs have been accustomed to supple mentary foods. Most of the milk used In Siam is Imported in condensed form, few of the natives keeping cows or goats or using their milk. Look the spray pump over. Get all the parts In working order during the winter so as to be ready for active work early In the spring. If you want lambs for fattening early a thoroughbred sire of one of the coarse wool breeds used on Merino ewes will produce excellent ones. Pumpkins will keep fine In a corner of the cellar near the furnace. If there is no furnace in tho cellar a better place for them Is a warm closet near the fire. Plant fruit trees on the uncultivated spots along the fence lines and In the fields. The Investment is good—adds both to beauty of farm and to the value of it. It Is the poorest sort of economy to milk a cow up to within a short time that she Is due to calve. Give her CO days’ rest and she will more than make up for lost time. The fight against mites and Insect pests must be kept up till the last one has been driven out. Your birds can not do well so long as they are afflict ed with these enemies. If you keep guineas, turkeys and chickens, build separate houses and yards for them. If you confine all three varieties In one yard during tha winter it will prove disastrous. Bees won’t thrive in a cellar where there are mice or any disturbing In fluence. It is well to partition bees off to themselves where it is quiet, plenty of ventilation and little light The common method of cleansing wool produces great quantities of foul liquors. containing valuable sub stances that can be recovered profit ably. Among these are wool grease and crude petroleum. If the bees are in old-fashioned hives, a good plan is to have a pro tecting shed over the hives with the front side open, and pack a lot of hay around and on top, leaving an opening in front for the bees to fly out on warm days for a cleansing flight. The United States Department of Agriculture recommends the establish ment of movable schools of agricul ture by the state experiment stations whereever 15 farmers can be secured as students and the school may be conducted for a year or longer. The kind of instruction should depend on the needs of the section. Horses seldom suffer from decayed teeth, but because of the upper teeth . closing oe the lower ones a little on the outside points are sometimes formed which lacerate the cheek or penetrate the gums, creating a tender ness that prevents the proper mastica i tlon of food, annoying the horse so much that he falls away very rapidly. Silos should be relatively deep. This not only means that the ensl lage settles and thereby excludes air. i but it is aiao favorable to the plan t of peeling off a coating of at least two inches dally. If this much en i silage Is not removed, especially ic I the warmer weather, it is very apt • to spoil, and where the silo Is very . large compared with the size of th« herd, it may be that as much ensl • lage as this will not be required and. • therefore, some spoiling is apt to re . suit on the surface. PINCHOT GOES FOR BALLINGER DEPOSED CHIEF FORESTER OUT LINES CHARGES HE WILL TRY TO PROVE. NOT FAITHFUL TO TAFT CALLS BALLINGER ENEMY OF CONSERVATION AND SAYS HE HAS MISREPRESENTED. Washington.—With Gifford Pinchot on the witness stand, the Uallinger- Pinchot inquiry entered its second phase. Saturday. The dismissed chief of the forestry bureau, before being sworn, made tho investigating committee this state ment of his charges against Secretary Ballinger: “What I desire to lay before the committee is a consecutive story of iny experience with Mr. Ballinger in relation to the conservation of nat ural resources. Among several other matters there are three of principal importance to be callod to your atten tion. “The first of these concerns the pol icy deviced and inaugurated by the last administration of protecting against monopolistic control of the wa ter power sites owned by the people. "I shall show you that Secretary Ballinger entered his office with the clear determination to make short work of that policy; that he reversed it so far as he was allowed to do so; that he restored the power Hites tc entry without the remotest idea of re withdrawing them and that finally, when 1 charged him last autumn to the President with being an enemy of the policy of conservation, he capped the climax by giving the president him self an explanation of his conduct that was essentially false. "The second has to do with my con nection as a government officer with the Cunningham coal cases and with the Glavis charges. I shall show you how the forest service became in volved In these cases and how Glavis submitted his facts to me. I believed then, as I believe now, that he told the truth. I am convinced now, as I was when he came to me, that Glavis was a faithful public servant and that the facts which he presented prove that Mr. Ballinger had been unfaith ful to his trust as a servant of the people, and as the guardian of public property of enormous value. "I shall show that since I leurned the facts you have heard from Glavis i and others which 1 am about to lay | before you, I have acted steadily in the j light of them, as it was my duty, both ; as a public officer and us a citizen to do. I shall show you that in pursu ; ance of that duty I laid before the President, both by word of mouth and in a letter of November 4th a state ment of my conviction that Secretary Ballinger has been a dangerous en | emy to conservation. I “I shall show* you that this letter l was submitted by the President to | Mr. Ballinger and that as part of his I reply he laid before the President a | statement concerning the Cunningham | coal cases, which statement Is shown by Indlsputed documentary evidence ! to be absolutely false in three essen : tial particulars. “It will then appear that Mr. Bal linger wilfully deceived the President and was disloyal to him. The third , principal matter Is concerned with the attitude of this government in law and administrative practice toward the I conservation of the natural resources belonging to the people, i "i desire to show you that the story of Glavis’ courageous and successful fight to protect the property of the people, which ended In his dismissal without a hearing is but a single chap ter In the history of the public lands. I shall show you that under our pres ent law and practice the more diffi cult tnsk falls on those who would pro tect the public property nnd not on those who would despoil It; and that under the present system the betrayal into monopolistic control of what be longs to all of us is made easy and, often In practice, inevitable. "The Imperative duty before this country Is not merely to get rid of an | unfaithful public servant. A far more ; important duty is to bring about a fun damental change In the law and the practice toward conservation. "When this story has been told nnd the witnesses whom I shall ask you to call nave been heard, you will real , ize that the Interests of the country are not safe in Mr. Ballinger’s hands and the public demand of this com mittee a verdict in harmony with the general conviction that the secretary of the Interior hns been unfaithful ! both to the public whose property Ihe has endangered and to the ! President whom he has deceived.” Giant Battleship Proposed. Washington.—Building a world’s rec ord-breaking battleship of 32,000 tons’ displacement at a cost of SIB,OOO and making the United States the leading naval power, are planned by Secretary Meyer, he is said to have told the House naval committee Saturday. The proposed giant battleship, with four teen 14-inch guns, waits until next year only because the naval experi ments with 14-Inch guns have not been completed and the department desires to know the result of full experiments. Calls Statements Mendacious. Washington, D. C. —Gifford Pinch ot’s opening statement to the Ballinger Pinchot inquiry Saturday afternoon was read by Secretary Ballinger in his office late that night. In response to a request he wrote out the follow ing statement; “In view of the fact that I will presently have an oppor tunity to appear before the committee and acquaint them with the truth, I shall not reply through the press to the mendacious aspersions which Mr. Pinchot seeks to cast upon me." BURDENS LIFTED'fROM EM) BACKS Weary is the back that bears the burden of kidney ills. There’s no rest nor peace for the man or woman who has a bad back. The distress begins in early morning. You feel lame and not refreshed. It’s h ird to get out of bed. It hurts to stoop to tie your shoes. All day the ache keeps up. Any sudden movement sends sharp twinges through the back. It is torture to stoop or straighten. At night the suf ferer retires to toss and twist and groan. Backache is kidney ache —a throbbing, dull aching in the kid neys. Blasters or liniments won’t do. You must get at the cause, inside.
