(From the United States Department of Agriculture.) Better marketing facilities are es sential to the increase in live-stock production in the South, which is de sirable from every point of view. Vari ous methods of improving the present situation In this respect have been tried out, and the most promising ones are discussed in a new publication of the United States department of agri culture, Farmers' Bulletin S09. Among the most Important are the organiza tion of co-operative shipping and mar keting clubs and of local live-stock buying companies, the establishment of local packing houses, the custom of holding live-stock sales on advertised dates, and the use of local ice plants in curing farm meat. Of these, says the bulletin already mentioned, co-operative shipping is the one that is being most generally adopt ted in the United States. Associations is a for this purpose have met with marked success in the middle West and are equally well adopted to conditions in some parts of the South. They enable the small producer to ship his animals td~centralized live-stock markets at no greater costfor transportation than is paid by the dealer who ships in car load lots. In this way the farmer is made independent of local buyers. An other great advantage of such associa tions is that they are simple in or ganization and require no capital to do business, because the farmers are not paid for their stock until the returns from the shipment are received. Market for Stock. In one Mississippi city the board of trade has created a somewhat more complex organization In order to pro vide the farmers of the surrounding country with a good local market for their live stock throughout the year. A "farmers' stockyards company" has been organized with a paid-in capital of $2,500, provided by local business men, in the hope of increasing the pro duction of live stock in the section. No dividends are paid and the operat ing expenses of the company are re duced to a minimum. On two days of each week throughout the year the company buys live stock for cash in any sized lots, at prices which are the equivalent of those prevailing at the large centralized markets less the cost of sending the animals to these mar ly X * mm >* ' m f v , Superior Beef Type. The immediate result of this kets. movement, It is said, has been higher prices paid by local butchers and their willingness to pay cash for live stock instead of insisting that payment be made by extending credit to the pro ducer. Incidentally the operations of the company have shown that live stock can be bought and shipped to the large markets, and a number of pri vate dealers have undertaken to com Thls has pete with the company, stimulated live-stock production in the surrounding country. Clemson College Plan. Another plan adopted by the Clem son Agricultural college In South Caro lina and the Uillted States department of agriculture, which has been co-oper ating with the college in the encourage ment of live-stock production, is the establishment of set market days at places accessible to the farmers feed ing cattle. When this plan was first instituted arrangements were made to bring to the sales buyer from Northern markets. The results have proved very satisfactory, cattle frequently netting from one-half to one cent more per pound than local buyers offer. Cull Out Stunted Pigs.

Kindness is a cheap supplement to the ration and produces big gains In milk flow These and similar methods are de signed to afford the farmer easy access to the large outside markets. Without them he is practically dependent on the local butcher and the local dealer or shipper. In selling to the butcher, frequently little or no attention is paid to market conditions. Hogs and cattle are slaughtered on numerous farms when the weather turns cool, with the result that the market Is glutted. ThÄ means low prices, which the farmer must accept because the product is perishable. In a small town in Louis iana, for example, It was found that each time it grew' cool eight or tea dressed hogs were offered for sale when the demand called for no more than one or two. Home Curing of Meat. To some extent a remedy for this situation may be found in better meth ods of curing meat at home and also by taking advantage of the refrigera tion facilities afforded by local ice plants. Experience has shown that it is practicable for the average South ern farmer to cure the pork needed for immediate home use, and the possibil ity of marketing hogs in the form of cured meats is worthy of considera tion. Some form of refrigeration, how ever, will greatly aid in safeguarding the curing process. This may be sup plied either in private meat-curing houses or in a community ineat-curing house, or by taking the meat to a local ice plan I t*» be on red. A recent experi ment lias shown that in a small meat curing liou.se in cost of curing the meat was not more than three-fourths of a cent a pound, including the cost of the ice. On the other hand, a number of ice companies curing meat for farmers charge 1 cent a pound for curing, 2 cents for cur ing and smoking, and 3 cents for cur ing, smoking and wrapping. Some ice plants prefer to buy the hogs outright from the farmer and sell the cured products on their own account. A no ticeable effect of this practice Is to In crease the number of hogs produced, because of the comparative certainty that a fairly profitable market will be found for them. uthern Georgia the PROTECT SHEEP FROM DOGS Canines Which Destroy Farmers' Flocks Should Either Be Muzzled or Killed Outright Town dogs which make war on the farmers' sheep should either be muz zled or killed. Thousands of sheep are killed in this w r ay every year and farmers are discouraged from growing w'ool and mutton. Local and state of ficers should see to it that the sheep of the farmers are protected, especial ly at this time.

Everyone has heard of the term, "ar chitectural style," and is more or less acquainted with its meaning. Churches, large public buildings und structures designed to embody the character of the fine arts are modeled closely after some of the established architectural styles, founded many years ago and brought down to the present age through the work of the architectural historians aqd archaeologists. Archi tecture of the American home, like American modes of living and the lan guage spoken by Americans, is Influ enced by the work of leaders in the periods of the past. The characteris tics of the architecture of various couhtrles are w'idely copied in the American home. It is not necessary, however, that the home follow the Dutch.

Perhaps the efforts öf inex perienced architects to produce some thing original is accountable for some of the houses lacking beauty, charac ter and the evidence of common sense, which may be seen in almost any com munity. The recognized architectural styles are used with varying degrees of modi fication, in house design. In the final analysis, it is the degree to which sufclight, the gift of nature which makes life possible, is utilized which determines the beauty of the house.

Thus nature has furnished the basis, light, of architectural or any other ap plication of beauty, and It remains for man to supply the remaining factor, form. The greatest success is ordinarily attained iu simplicity. The great master in the fine arts spends years of his life in attaining perfection in the simple things and it is not uncommon that the masterpiece which crowns his career is founded on a theme charac terized by simplicity in every detail. The house which is overburdened with elaborate ornamentation is never beau tiful in the average opinion. Take as ai» examplç of popular opinion, the Colonial style of architecture. This Etyle is now one of the most widely used of any applied to the American hotne. It stands for simplicity and de pends upon this quality for its beauty; Because the so-called Colonial style was established by colonists coming from England, the characteristics of the English style of architecture were »revalent in the houses which these Y colonists built on this side of th* ocean. In fact, seme of the early homes contained parts which were built in England and carried over here in ships. The typical Colonial house Is a wide structure with a sim ple roof, the surface of which is usu ally broken up with a number of small dormers, spaced symmetrically. The entrance Is at the center of the build ing. A hall extends back from this en trance, dividing the first floor Into two sets of rooms. A house modeled closely after the Colonial style can hardly be successful ly-built on a lot less than 100 feet wide.

The example shown in the illus trations is not' a true Colonial type, but it is in the class of small houses designed for a fairly narrow lot and suggesting the Colonial style In its out lino and arrangement. The exterior of inuse is finished in a simple man ner, with wide clapboard siding, large porch with turned columns across the U front and heavy outside chimney at the side. Clapboards were originally made wide because of the difficulty in cutting them out of the logs, few-er being re quired to cover a given surface when cut wide. At the present time wide clapboards inay be obtained and are used to reproduce the appearance of these earlier siding boards, especially in the Colonial style house where their use is most appropriate. The large chimney is of brick and tapers slightly above the first floor. No porch rail is used, which makes it pos sible to easily inclose the porch en tirely with screens or storm sash. The hooded windows with their shutters form a distinctive feature of the ex terior. True to the typical Colonial arrange ment, a hall runs back through the center of the first floor to the Stair Cased openings lead from this way. hall to the living room and the dining The living room is a very pleas- j ant room extending back from the front along the side of the house. A j fireplace is built into the outer wail near the center of the room. The din Ing room, kitchen and pantry are situ ated along the other side of the honse. There is a buffet in the dining room room. and the pantry is fitted with shelves and a work table. The refrigerator is placed on the back porch, but it is ar ranged so that it opens from the pan try. The stair leading to the basement is entered from a passage between the kitchen and the porch. v i The second floor is pleasantly ar ranged. One large bedroom above the living room is especially pleasant. There is a fireplace in this room. The closet is lighted by a front window. Two other bedrooms are provided on this floor. The bath is large and is fit ted with a built-in medicine case. A \ large hall makes all rooms independ ent. Land Built by Rivers. The geologists say that the Gulf of Mexico once extended northward to the mouth of the Ohio, and that all the land between that point and New Or leans has been built up by the earth washings brought down the river. Even now, the stream carries on the average something like 400,000,000 tons every year. From the Missouri alone comes 120 tons every second, or more than 10,000,000 cubic yards ev ery day. Make Bread From Moss. The Indians along the Columbia river make a kind of bread from a moss that grows on the spruce fir tree. This moss is prepared by plac ing in heaps, sprinkling it with wa ter, and permitting it to ferment. Then It is rolled into balls as big as a aian's head, and these are bated in pits. i His Interpretation.

The straight hanging satin skirt adds nothing to the size of the hips. A little carefully disposed full ness in the overskirt straightens the line from bust to hips and the pockets are placed where they will not widen the figure. By extending the over dress into points at the sides an al most straight line is achieved from neck to hem. The point on the deep cuffs makes the sleeves shapely and the narrow collar and short shoulder seam lessen the width of the shoul ders.

They carry him back to a first aid station, located in any available shelter—in a wood—behind a hill or in a trench, or dugout or tent, Here surgeons stanch the flow of blood, put splints on shattered bones and dress wounds, so that the soldier may be moved to a place back of the danger zone. ' He is carried by the ambulance col* umn to one of the small field hospitals set up to the rear of the fighting line. The field hospitals are usually housed in tents, wlthrcapucity for temporary care of 125 wounded, who lie on blankets or tarpaulins on the ground. Further back of the line there are evacuation hospitals each designed to receive the wounded from three field hospitals. permanent resting places or equipped with appliances of a real hospital. The wounded man must be sent still fur ther away from the danger zone, to some place where he will net have to be moved even If the army is forced to retreat. He is finally taken to a base hospital, with all the equipment of a. regular military hospital. Here he has the best of care and may re main until the base hospital is filled, when he is again transferred to a permanent intefior hospital to com plete his recovery. It is the base hos pital that gives him his chance for life.
