EVERYBODY SHOULD COMPETE Appeal to Civic Pride Will Often Bring Excellent Results in Clean ing Up Premises—Leader Is of Importance. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) In any rural community badly In fested with rats, it is a good plan for farmers to form rat clubs and offer prizes for destroying the rodents. The younger members of the community as well as adults should be allowed to compete and the prizes should be| awarded periodically, as once a month. A first, second, and third prize are suggested for those who bring in the greatest number of rat tails. Spe cific rules governing the contests should be made at the start, and in struction as to the proper methods of trapping or otherwise killing rats should be a part of the program for each meeting of the club. Prises may be provided by private donAion or even by assessment of members. The plan gives better satisfaction than a system of straight rewards, because It arouses more enthusiasm and costs less. A rat and sparrow club In Eng land In three seasons secured the de structlon of 16,000 rats and 28,000 sparrows by an expenditure of less than $30 In prize money. Had ordi nary bounties been paid, the same work would have cost $1,000 or $1,200. Co-operation Needed. In the matter of rat infestation, small towns are intermediate between farm and city. They show a marked increase of rodents in winter and a decrease when spring opens. Yet the outlying parts of a villnge are peculiar ly subject to losses of poultry during the summer. Pigeon lofts, also, in smnll towns are subject to raids by rats, and the toll of eggs and young squabs is often heavy. Rats can climb flne-meshetl netting and gain en trance to the pigeon yard at the top where the birds themselves enter. Repression in Villages. The measures recommended for re pressing rats on farms will apply to villages, but co-operation of citizens m * Badger—Useful in Destroying Noxious Rodents. ta destroy the rodents will usually be more readily obtained. Often the small town has a civic club which could take up rat work whenever its Importance is presented. It requires only an intelligent and persistent lead er to set the machinery for rat repres sion in motion. The leader should provide for the instruction of the com munity ns to the best methods of trap ping, sanitation, rat-proofing buildings, and other measures needed to discour age the rodent. An appeal to civic pride will often bring excellent re sults In cleaning up premises and in replacing wooden walks or porches, di lapidated buildings, or other harbors for rats. RIGHT CARE OF DAIRY COWS Expensive Practice to Permit Animals to Get in Run-Down Condition as Pastures Wane. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) As pastures begin to wane It Is often the custom to permit the cows to get in a run-down condition. This Is an ex pensive practice. As the pastures give out begin to increuse other feeds so ns to keep the milk flow constnnt. Prepa rations should also be made to shelter the nniinnls from cold rains, sleet and snow. More energy Is consumed in maintaining the body heat of the nni innl exposed to severe weather than is utilized in the production of milk and butter. HEAVES IS COMMON AILMENT Annoying Disease of Horse Interferes With Usefulness of Animal and Detracts From Value. Heaves is a very common and an noying disease of horses, interfering seriously with the usefulness of the animal, and consequently detracting from its value. Mainly n disease >of old horses, it is essentially the result of faulty feeding and working, espe cially hard pulling or fust driving when the stomach Ib overloaded. Gross feeders are frequently subjects of heaves. _ Optimistic Thought. Keep good coinpuny a d you'll be of them. OUTLOOK DUBIOUS FOR AUTO Roads Cannot 8tand Wear and Tear They Are Being Subjected To by Heavy Trucks. With the shortage of labor for road making and the more genernl use of the roads for heavy hauling, it is like ly that the roads as they exist will not be able to withstand the hard usage, and the outlook Is dubious for the automobile. Many industrial com panies are making use of fleets of trucks to deliver their goods, instead of subjecting themselves to the uncer tainties of the railroad service and the wear and tear on the roads thus made use of is more than they can take care of. This, more than ever, makes it evident that there should be some very decided reforms made in the matter of road building. The makeshift repairs which have hereto fore been made are not now sufficient, and ail new road building work should be made on the most substantial lines. —Chicago Journal. Dependence on Good Roads. Every farmer should feel his de pendence upon good roads. Whether or not one lives on a public highway he should take an interest in the nearest one to his farm or the road he must use to market his farm, or chard and garden products. Roads Not Properly Built. To say that the roads are bad be cause motortrucks have been passing over them is simply a confession that the roads are not properly built and maintained.
