The simple form of organization that suffices for co-operative live-stock shipping associations is one of their leading features. In the first places, practically no capital is required, since payment Is not made to mem bers for Stock shipped until the re turns are received from the market. To organize, it is necessary only that the farmers of a community meet to gether, adopt a simple constitution and by-laws, and elect officers and a board of directors, who in turn appoint a manager. Although in order to transact IWisi ness It is not necessary for an associa tion of this nature to incorporate un der the state laws, it Is advisable to do so as a protection to the members. If not incorporated, the organization, as such, can not sue or be sued, and in case of the loss of stock from rail road wrecks or other cause the man ager could not enforce claims for thc association, but each shipper would be compelled to present claims for his own losses. The cost of incorporating is comparatively small —usually not more than $lO. The United States department of agriculture will furnish, on request, the essentials of a model constitution and by-laws. ENTIRE ABSENCE OF SCRUBS Ohio Breeder, Recently Enrolled for “Better Sires” Keeps Nothing But Purebreds. With the gradually increasing enroll ment in the “Better Sires” movement, the United States department of ag riculture notes unusual interest in reg istration of sires. Many enrollment blanks on which breeding stock is re ported contain the name and registry number of stock, although such In formation is not specifically asked for. A recent enrollment from a live stock r .a- -v vU - • ocoy • tt-.i Am Ohio Purebred Shorthorn Bull. owner in Athens county, Ohio, shows that all his sires—a Shorthorn bull, a Berkshire boar, and a Delaine ram — were registered stock of good quality. In addition he kept a registered collie dog. Furthermore, his Rhode Island Red poultry wore all standard-bred. The result of using purebred sires j Is shown by the entire absence of scrubs on the farm. AH the female animals listed were grades, cross breds or pure breds. FORAGE SUPERIOR FOR HOGS Extremely High Prices Make It Profit able to Substitute Grass Crops for Grain. With the present extremely high prices of grain it is profitable to sub stitute, as far as possible, forage Crops for grain feeds. A saving of 15 to 2fi per cent of the total amount of grain and supplements may be ex pected through the use of forage. Pas ture crops, when combined with grain feeds, will produce the cheapest ra tions for both breeding and fattening hogs, and the cost of gains will range from one-sixth to one-fourth cheaper than when the grain is fed in a dry lot. It may be possible, in some eases, with an abundance of good forage, to obtain fairly satisfactory gains for a time on such forage alone, but the greatest returns have been obtained when grain was fed in addition to the forage at the rate of two to three per cent of the weight of the hogs per day. SILAGE LACKING IN PROTEIN When Fed Without Seme Supplement ary Feed Less Satisfactory Re sults Are Obtained. Silage is lacking in protein and should be supplemented by some con centrate high in protein. When fed without this supplementary feed, less satisfactory results can be expected than when it is properly supplemented. The most economical and most satis factory proportion in which to feed cottonseed meal to fattening cattle re ceiving silage is approximately 2.? pounds daily a thousand pounds ol live weight.

II It 1 P ■ I m €* 9 gncle sam ~scieHtiric„ By ROBERT H. MOULTON. w \ HE United States depart- I ment of agriculture is charged with the work of promoting agriculture In its broadest sense. Hence the department contains m H niany bureaus. The of- Av ce anu management, for Instance, has for its main object the Improve ment of farm practice by Introducing better'business methods and by apply ing the principles of science. Then there are the weather bureau, the bureaus of animal industry and plant industry, the forest service, the bureaus of soils, entomology, biological survey, crop estimates and so on. Among these are the bureau of chem istry and the bureau of markets. The former is largely concerned with ana lytical work and investigation under the food and drugs act and questions of agricultural chemistry of public in terest. The bureau of markets has a wide scope. Its work is divided into four branches —investigational, demon strational, service and regulating. One branch of its investigational work is the securing of basic information of fundamental importance regarding marketing methods and conditions and also regarding the standardization of agricultural products and methods used in their handling. So many of the activities of the de partment revolve about the grain that the United States produces and eats. The specific activity with which this article is concerned is “the milling and baking qualities of grain for which standards have been established under the United States grain standards act.” Scientific milling and baking have received the attention of a corps of in vestigators. An experimental mill and baking laboratory have recently been Installed at a cost of $00.060. They are quite up-to-date and by means of them a large amount of accurate In formation. hitherto unobtainable, has been secured. The laboratory is really a series of laboratories, each equipped for doing a particular part of the investigational work. The wheat samples obtained for testing purposes first pass through the grading laboratory, where a complete mechanical analysis is made of each sample and a detailed record kept of Its condition, physical characteristics, purity and soundness. This feature of the investigation. Is not the least Im portant. as It Is through the observa tion In this ro<*m that these investiga tions can be definitely connected with practical grain grading and wheat val uation. After this operation is the samples pass 'ntn the hands of the miller, who nfits them through the cleaning machinery, where they are handled in practically the same man ner as in the commercial mill cleaning department! The equipment here con sists of two crvln separators and scourer. Once -denned, the sample is ready for tempering. Every type herd condition of wheat grown in the country is met with in ♦he course of the work of this labora tory. and owing to the fact that th Trophy Is High y Prized Gold Cup, Chle f Award at Ascot Meet ing, Coveted by Every Racing Man in England.

THE SEA COAST ECHO, BAY ST. LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI treatment required for the different samples varies considerably, depend ing upon its physical character, the judgment of the miller must be assisted by definite information concerning the sample. In this he has before him the record obtained in the grading labo ratory, which includes the very neces sary data regarding the moisture con tent As comparatively small quanti ties are used in the milling tests, the addition of moisture and the control of all conditions surrounding this process are relatively simple. The milling is done on a small non automatic testing mill consisting of four single stands of six by six inch rolls, three corrugated and one smooth. The mill is so operated that the flow of a five-break nine-reduction roller mill, such as is in commercial use. can be closely imitated. Every effort is made to standardize the conditions under which the. tests are made, in order that the results se cured may he comparable in all cases. One innovation in this connection, which is considered'of extreme impor tance, is apparatus for controlling the humidity of the milling room. This has proved to he a very valuable ad junct. and is a distinctly new feature as applied to work of this character. After a short period in storage the flour produced in the mill goes to the bakery, where its actual quality is de termined by its conversion into bread under standardized conditions. This bakery is very completely equipped for accurately controlled work.

In only a few cities of western Si beria are there two-story houses. Baths in houses are very rare, public baths being used.

Once baked, the expansion of the loaf and the texture, cqlor and fla vor of the bread are determined and recorded. Other tests of technical nature, such as will show gluten, protein and mois ture content, are made on the flour, to assist in determining its commercial value and interpretine the results of the baking tests. Much of this work is done in a well-equipped laboratory ad joining the bakery. In addition to this the unsurpassed facilities of the bu reau of chemistry are also available in the conduct of investigations that lead into the field of chemical research. The immediate direction of the work of the laboratory is under the chief of the bureau of markets, and the prob lems holding first place at the present time relate primarily to the many fac tors that must he considered in the proper revision and intelligent appli cation of the federal wheat standards; however, the facilities offered by this specialized equipment and corps of workers are also available to other bu reaus of the department. Numerous milling and baking tests are made for the bureau of plant in dustry to assist in their efforts to de velop for the various sections of the country more prolific strains of wheat having superior milling and baking qualities.

Acts on the Liver, Regulates Kidneys, Purifies the Blood The liver is the largest and most Im portant organ In the body, and when the liver refuses to act, It causes constipa tion, biliousness, headaches. Indigestion, gas, sour stomach, bad breath, dysentery, diarrhoea, pains in the back and under shoulder blades and under ribs on right side. These symptoms lead to colds, in fluenza or other serious troubles unless corrected Immediately. An inactive liver places an extra bur den on the kidneys, which overtaxes them and causes the blood to absorb and carry Into the system the impurities that the liver and kidneys have failed to elim inate. When you treat the liver alone, you treat only a third of your trouble, and that is why you have to take purgatives every few nights. Calomel or other ordi nary laxatives do not go far enough. If you would treat your kidneys and blood while treating the liver, you would put your entire system in order and frequent purgatives would then be unnecessary. Dr. W. L. Hitchcock many years ago recognized these important facts, and aft er much study and research, compound ed what is now known as Dr. Hitch cock’s Liver, Kidney and Blood Powders, three medicines combined in one. This was the Doctor’s favorite prescription for many years, being used by Ids patients with marked success.

A marker has been placed on the tree by the Sycamore Shoals chapter, says the American Forestry Magazine, In making the announcement. The sol diers of the War of 1812 met here. Then came the Mexican war and the old tree saw men again leave their homes to fieht. Next came the struggle between the states, and the oak witnessed the drilling of men to fight one another in their own coun try. Then came the world war and again the veteran oak saw our hoys answer their united country’s call. Good Advice. “What would you do if you were In my shoes.
