FEEDING FOR PROFIT
Live Stock Growing Is Essential to Successful Farming. Growers Secure Benefit of Home- Grown Grain and Also Fertilizer That Is Left In the Pastures and Feed Lots. (By B. O. COWAN.) Meet farmers have learned that stock growing or stock feeding Is es sential to successful agriculture. Ex perience as well as the agricultural college has taught the valuable lesson that the maintenance of live stock on the farm is necessary In order to conserve the fertility of the soil. Hence the majority of farmers are growers of live stock, and many who are not live stock breeders are feed ers. thus getting the benefit of a home market for the grain grown on the farm and also the fertilizer that Is lelt in the pasture and feed lots. These experiments in cattle feeding are always beneficial to the farm, es pecially if the manure made is prop erly utilized, and usually a financial profit is realized; but this is not al ways the case, since many feeding operations show- a distinct loss. This may be due to the high price paid for feede rs, to their poor quality, or to bad judgment in feeding and selling. £ • • . ' -J Profitable Bunch of Feeder Steers. Usually the feeder is anxious to select good, well-bred steers, as they feed better and are more likely to show a profit than scrubs. Most feeders have a preference as to breed, but no breed has a monopoly of merit for the feed yard, and the person who will make such a claim is a partial par tisan. That the short-horn steer is a profitable steer in the feed lot needs only to be asserted to meet with a ready endorsement from a very nu merous army of feeders; the state ment is almost self-evident and needs no more proof than the assertion that the majority of Americans are honor able and patriotic citizens. The short-horn was the first of the improved breeds to mold and improve the cattle of the American continent. They were Improved and exhibited and their wonderful feeding qualities extensively advertised by intelligent DUMPING CHUTE FOR WAGON Improvement Adapted for Use In Transportation of Coal, Grain and Other Similar Loads. In describing a wagon chute, in vented by John G. Smith of Philadel phia, ihe Scientific American says: This invention, which is shown in the engraving, is a fragmentary per spective view of the end o? a wagon with the inventor's device attached thereto. The Improvement relates to wagon chutes of the type adapted to be used with wagons carrying coal, grain, or the like, and is so arranged that it can be shifted to direct a stream of the material from the wagon Wagon Chute. lo either side thereof. An object is to provide a movable chute capable of being i eversed, so as to direct a stream of material to either side, with means for supporting an auxiliary chute, and with means for locking it In any ad justed position. The device is simple In construction, inexpensive to man ufacture. readily accessible, strong, durable, and easily adjusted. Cleaning the Cow Barn. The cow barn should and can be kept so clean that milking will not prove objectionable to any of the farm women. To do this the barn should be cleaned once per day. The proper arrangement of floor and gut ter will help much In ease of clean Ing, and the right kind of cow tie will keep the manure in the gutter where it belongs, and the cow will keep clean. The use of bedding, pre ferably wheat straw, in moderate quantities along with reasonable pre cautions for barn cleaning, will make milking a pleasure. Palatability of Rye. Rye is not only a suitable, but an excellent food for growing pigs. It should be ground into a fine meal and mixed in a rather thin slop with water, or, preferably, skim-milk. If the slop soaks fcfr 12 hours before feeding, so much the better. In this shape the pigs may have all they will eat up clean and quickly three times a day. Heavy Turkeys in the Southwest. A prize of 50 cents per pound for the Heaviest turkey submitted In a Texas contest resulted In bringing out some fine turkeys. The prize winner was W. !R. Mickle, Plano. Tex., weight of tur nkey, 42 pounds; L. D. Jarrells, Taiton, Tex', and J. D. Anna and C. W. Karnes, Inez., Tex., each raised 40- >tx)und birds. tenant farmers In Great Britain from 1720 to 1800. In the last decade of the eighteenth century some were Im ported to the United States. Later Importations were finite numerous, and the use of shott-horn hulls be came so general and their Improve ment of the common cattle so marked that feeders of that period eagerly gathered grade short-horn steers Into their feed yards. This was especially true of Ohio and Kentucky, and short horn history is replete with instances of large lots of steers that were fat tened In these states and then driven, as the only means of reaching a mar ket. to Philadelphia, New York city or Boston. The abundance of grass and water en route made such jour neys possible, and by careful handling a drove of fat steers accustomed to plenty of exercise could be taken 500 to 800 miles without serious loss of flesh. Governors Seymour, Felix and George Renick, all of Ohio, were pio neers In these feeding and marketing experiments. At that day, and even much later, steers were often held until four to six years old, and wheft fattened were very large. In 1857 B. F. Harris of Champion, HI., whose name was this year added to the Illi nois house of fame, marketed 100 grade short-horn steers in Chicago at $7 per hundred, and the steers av eraged 2,377 pounds. But the day of the big-overfed steer Is passed, and we now have the era of “baby beef.” To meet this demand the short horn is equal to the occasion as he has been pre-eminent in the heavy weight class. Short-horns are early maturers and easy feeders, and when matured are usually of greater weights. This Is a general statement and is not Intended to apply to all cases. In this connection. It may be interesting to state that some two years ago some students of the Kan sas Agricultural college compiled weighfs by ages of cattle shown at the American Royal for several years and that compilation showed the short-horns to be heavier than any others in 10 out of 12 classes. Sc without disparagement to other good cattle 1 can truthfully say that short horns have had a long and exhaustive trial under the varied conditions of clime and climate and have proven generally satisfactory to wants of in (elligent husbandmen. So I say with out hesitation they are profitable in the feed lot. BIG TRADE IN COTTON GOODS Gains In Manufactured Material Have Been Very Gratifying—Business With China Doubles. It is a matter of peculiar gratifica tion that as the years go by this coun try is sending abroad more and more of manufactured cotton goods. This means, of course, that instead of sending the raw cotton abroad to be manufactured elsewhere, as is still to so large an extent the case, the peo pie of this country are gradually reaching a position where the cotton will not only be grown in America but will be manufactured in America, says the Manchester Union. The gains in manufactured cotton goods exported during the past eight months have been very gratifying In February alone such exports were valued al $3,290,795, as compared with $1,845, 893 in February, 1911, and with $2, 106.648 in January. 1911. For th eight months' period In each year tbc exports were $20,264,591 In 1912, 059.745 in 1911 and $12,745,689 it 1910. Notwithstanding the polif.ca agitation In China, trade with that country was more than double thai of the previous year for the eight months’ period, and (his is n fac-' which not appear to be capable of explanation on any other grounc than that of a growing sympathy will the people of the United States. WATERING THE SHEEP FLOC Short Legged Animals Live in Dry and Dusty Atmosphere, Thereby In creasing Thirst. ‘I never bother ‘o water my aheop They get all they need from the dew.' Vhis is what one often bears from the flock owners of the country, writes J C. Courier In the Farm and Fireside. But let us look at this proposition in a practical common sense way. Sheep are animals with a high body tern perature. They a.-e ruminants that generally consume is-rge quantities of rough, dry grasses. They are wrapped In a thick, ponderous woolen overcoat heavier and thicker than nature in tended them to wear. They are low down, close to the ground; therefore In an atmosphere hotter, drier and more dusty than the longer legged beasts and man himself. What is the natural result of such condition? it must necessarily increase their need for water, and so It does. Even In winter time, when the scow offers a better source of moisture than thts dew, any flock of sheep wfij drink from the water trough if it is clean water and convenient. Having Horse Know You. Win the confidence of your work .animals, if you would secure the highest service from them with the least trouble. The driver and team who knoweth each other are a good combination for efficient work. Overfeeding Horses. It is easy to overfeed a horse with grain. The palatability of the feed tempts him to eat more than is good for him. NEW FIXTURES FOR BATHROOM Glass Twisted Towel Rods With Nick el-Plated Brackets Are Latest Accessories. Every year something new appears In the way of bathroom accessories. Decidedly new this spring are glass twisted towel rods with nickel-plated brackets In colonial designs. Tho twisted glass prevents the towel from slipping off the rods, as so often hap pens with plain glass rods. Another new fixture, which will be ■ found useful in a small bathroom where It is Impossible to have a sta tionary washstand, is a basin and soap holder of rather heavy wire, white enameled. This holder is made to span the bathtub from one side to the other by means of a heavy wire ex tending out on each side. Both ends of this wire are nickel-plated and made very strong where they clasp the sides of |he tub. The whole arrangement has an extension feature which en ables It to fit any width bathtub. A white enameled manicure table, with glass top over oak, will be found convenient for either dressing room or bathroom. This table is finished with nickel rims. At one end is a quarter circle drawer ,In which may be kept the various manicure instniments. CARE OF THE FURNITURE Prudent Housekeeper Will Shun Pol ish Recommended to “Cover All Defects.” The prudent housekeeper will be as wary of doctoring her furniture w r lth polish that is recommended to “cover all defects” as she would be ol a patent medicine which is guaran teed to cure every disease. The high ly-polished surfaces of furniture have often been ruined by a too free use of a so-called polish which, not hav ing been rubbed dry, has hardened and collects all of the dust before dry ing, has caused a dull film to appear over the polished surfaces. A simple and effective polish for cleaning fur niture and removing scratches is made of one-third linseed oil and two-thirds benzine. It should be applied with a paint brush which has very soft bris tles and rubbed dry with an old soft piece of muslin or soft flannel. For polishing, fold it Into a pad. sprinkle a few drops of alcohol over the surface of the pad snd rub the furniture firm ly and quickly. Rub only a small part at a time and be sure to rub until the surface Is quite dry. Little Tea Dishes. Fancy cakes may be had in such va riety in most communities that it hardly pays to make them. On the oth er hand, there are always little enter gencies where the heme-baked prod uct is the only one easily available, and at such times it is well to re member that some very delectable ones are easily done. For Instance, plain white cake made by any preferred recipe can be baked in shallow pans and cut while warm into squares, oblongs, triangles, etc. These shapes are dipped in either chocolate or maple fondant and arv. then heavily" sprinkled with chopped ants. Keeping Canned Tomatoes. When canning tomatoes add some hot lard (enough to cover w'ell) to each can before sealing and they will not prove sour or bitter. The coating of lard prevents stray microbes that may enter through a poor rubber from causing damage to the tomatoes. Be sure and scald the jars and keep the lids on the stove in boiling w r ater. The earliest tomatoes should be canned as they are less apt to be acid than when the vines are getting exhausted from bearing or are slightly frosted. Milkless, Eggless, Butterless Cake. Put into a saucepan the following; One cup brown sugar, one cup water, one-third cup lard, two cups seeded raisins, one-fourth grated nutmeg, one teaspoonful cinnamon, one teaspoonful ground cloves, pinch of salt; boil to gether three minutes, then let cool. When cold add one teaspoon soda dis solved in hot water, two cups flour in which one-half teaspoonful baking powder has been sifted. Bake one hour in moderate oven. Apple Pudding. Place a quart of quartered and parec apples in a granite dish, also a cup oi water and a little nutmeg or cinnamon. Heat to the boiling point on top of the stove, and cover with a crust made of two cups of flour, two tablespoon fuls of baking powder, a little salt, two tablespoonfuls of butter and milk to make a soft dough. Cover well and cook about one-half hour. Serve with molasses sauce. An Around ifHOUSE Salt will remove a fresh ink stain from a carpet. Fish is very unwholesome when not well cooked, as well as unpalatable. Window glass should not be cleansed with soap, as this treatment renders the glass cloudy. A little borax or household ammonia may he added to warm water. An excellent substitute for cloths in window washing Is an old newspaper or a chamois skin, which should be wrung from the water and passed rap idly over the glass. To remove a rusty screw, apply a hot iron to its head for a few minutes and then remove it In the usual way with a screw driver. The screw will then come out easily. Both water and chamois should be clean and the water should be changed as 6ften as it becomes cloudy. A soft cloth moistened in alcohol and rubbed on glass adds luster to it. WHITE PLAGUE LESS DEADLY Decrease In Death Rate From Tubercu losis Means Saving of 27.000 Lives in Ten Years. In the decade from 1901 to 1910, the death rate from tuberculosis In the United States declined from 196.9 for each 100,00 persons living to 160.3, a decrease of 18.7 per cent, while the general death rate, Including all causes of death, declined only one-half as fast, or at the rate of 9.7 per cent, from 1655.0 to 1495.8, according to figures given out by the National As sociation for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis. The figures are based on data abstracted from the reports of the United States Bureau of the census, and cover the registration area in this country. According to the statement, the tuberculosis death rate has declined steadily since 1904, when it was 201.6. On the other hand, the general death rate shows a fluctuation downward in general trend, but not as steady as the tuberculosis rate. The decline in the tuberculosis death rate in the last ten years means a saving of 27,000 lives at the present time. In Pompeii.

I became alarmed, and called our family physician w T ho at once pro nounced the disease eczema. The lit tle fellow was under treatment * for about three months. By the end of that time, he seemed no better. I be came discouraged. I dropped the doc tor’s treatment, and commenced the use of Cuticura Soap and Ointment, and In a few days noticed a marked change. The eruption on his cheeks was-almost healed, and his shoulders, arms and breast were decidedly bet ter. When he was about seven months old, all trace of the eczema was gone. "During his teething period, his head and face were broken out in boils which I cured w'ith Cuticura Soap and Ointment. Surely he must have been a great sufferer. During the time of teething and from the time I dropped the doctor's treatment, I used the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment, nothing else, and when two years old he was the picture of health. His complexion was soft and beauti ful, and his head a mass of silky curls. I had been afraid that he would never be well, and I feel that I owe a great deal to the Cuticura Remedies” (Signed) Mrs. Mary W. Ramsey, 224 E. Jackson St.. Colorado Springs, Col., Sept. 24, 1910.

Goethals, who at the time It took place was an instructor in en gineering at West Point. One day, in a recitation he gave out this question to a class of cadets: “The post flagpole, sixty feet high, has fallen down. You are ordered by your commanding officer to put it up again. You have under your command a sergeant and ten privates of the en gineer corps. How would you get the pole back into place?” Each cadet, after long consideration and much figuring over the derricks, blocks, tackle and so on, evolved a different method. “No,” said Goethals, “you are all wrong. You would simply say; 'Ser geant, put up that flagpole!’” To Revive House Plants.

Arrive there at sunset, or better still by moonlight, and you will fancy yourself trans planted to some city of dreams. With daylight this feeling may wear off to some extent, although there Is never, at any time, as much bustle and stir in v enice as in other towns. Morn ing. noon or night, Venice has a fas cination all her own. This is partly due to the fact that she is a city buUt on the water. To explore Venice and to become in timately acquainted with her, a gon dola is not a necessity, rather it is a luxury for sunset evenings and moonlight nights. It is a delightful ex perience, and not a difficult one, to find one’s way about Venice on foot; quaint, old world corners are discover ed, bits of ancient architecture, carved doorways and little bridges, with a feast of color here, there and every where. Apart from all the beauty of scenery, there is the enthralling inter est evoked by her history and tradi tions. Among the traditions we read that St. Theodore was the first patron saint of Venice, to be superseded later on by St. Mark. The wanderer in Ven ice becomes familiar with the Lion of St. Mark. More prominently than anywhere it is to be seen on one of the columns on the Piazetta, whilst on the other is St. Theodore.
