Pretty and Popular Shirt Waists
Tho women of America, at least, are
faithfully devoted to tho snnalble and
smart shirt waist. Manufacturers of
those essentials of tho wardrobe have
entered the held with models very
close to the original design and
have found them more heartily
appreciated than ever. These waists
are cut with a masculine sever-
Ity of line, of the softest and most
supple silks, and finished with hem
stitching and needlework, decorative
buttons and other Items of daintiness
In detail that proclaim them as utter
Wash silks and crepe do chine are
the favorite materials for shirt waists.
They are cut with high or convertible
collars, which must bo provided with
supporting wires If they are to stand
up. Sleeves are long and finished
Tho three waists pictured here may
ho accepted as correct In style with
out any misgivings. The first one Is
of crepe de Chino with hemstitched
seams. The fronts are fulled on to
tho narrow yoke. The straight collar
Gown of Semitransparent Fabric
The pretty gown shown In the pic
ture Is developed In a net-top lace with
heavy pattern of embroidered flowers
and scalloped edges. It would look
Just as well made of shadow lace,
voile, embroidered batiste, chiffon, or
any other of those semitransparent
fabrics for which women show an In
creasing partiality. All the summery
printed mulls and the new voiles of
fancy weave are at the disposal of the
copyist who fancies this model.
Since It is the airiness and coloring
of the fabric more than anything else
that counts In a gown of this char
acter it may be made to cost much or
little. For nets, laces and voiles an
underslip of silk is needed, and a slip
of this kind looks best under any of
the transparent materials. Hut If one
must practice strict economy the un
dersllp may be of some of the silky
looking cotton fabrics or of mull with
good effect. ,
An underslip of pink taffeta sup
ports'the flounces that make up the
skirt In this dress, and the flchullke
drapery of the bodice. This flehu falls
over a wide girdle of pink ribbon with
bow and looped ends at the back. The
girdle is supported by a shaped and
boned foundation, and laces down the
front with a silk cord.
The silk skirt Is moderately wide
and finished at the bottom with a box
supports a second collar of embroid
ered batiste which opens with wings
at the front. The cuffs are deep, close
fitting and plain, finished at the edge
with machine hemstitching. Small
'Jot buttons fasten the front.
At the right a similar waist has a
narrow panel down the front, fasten
ing to the left side with flat pearl but
tons. The plain cuffs are sloped, and
fasten with buttons, also. The choker
collar may bo protected by a dainty
embroidered turn-over band.
White wash silk with narrow black
and gray stripes is used for the man
nish waist shown below the others. It
Is perfectly plain, with collar that
may bo worn cither closed or open at
tho front. Pearl buttons fasten the
front and tho cuffs. The latter are
made to turn back.
The new waists are cool and very
easy to launder. They are washed in
warm suds and Ironed when partially
dry, It is the simplest of processes.
Altogether the new waists have every
thing to recommend them

BEST RATION FOR THE PIGS
Economical to Make Use of All Avail
able Skim Milk— Furnishes
In making up a ration for pigs. It is
economy to make the best use of the
skim milk available. Experiments
have proved conclusively that where
sufficient skim milk is available to
furnish the protein content of the
ration to balance up corn, It is not
necessary for good economy to feed
any kind of high protein concentrates
to growing pigs.
The proper proportion in which to
feed skim milk and corn for the best
results, is from one to three pounds
of the skim milk to one pound of corn
meal, using the larger proportion of
milk when the pigs are young, and
gradually Increasing the amount of
corn meal In proportion to milk used.
For young pigs, the ration will be
very materially benefited by the ad
dition of c, liberal portion of middlings,

which Is a well-balanced feed for pigs.
It Is a difficult matter to estimate the
amount of feed which will be required
by 80 pigs up to August 1, as very
much depends upon the capacity of
the pigs to make rapid gains.
On good rape or alfalfa pasture,
however, no more than 350 to 400
pounds of grain, or Its equivalent,
should be required for 100 pounds of
gain. The value of siclm milk can be
reduced to a grain basis by figuring
350 pounds of skim milk to equal 100
pounds of grain when fed with corn
In the proportion above advised.
Figuring upon this basis, It will not
be difficult to estimate approximately
the amount of feed which will be re
quired for the time mentioned.
TREATING HORSE FOR THRUSH
Hoof Should Be Trimmed Properly,
Diseased Parts Removed and
Strong Disinfectant Applied.
(By M. H. REYNOLDS, Minnesota Ex
Thrush in horses’ feet Is frequently
caused by standing In filth. This
changes the texture of the hoof and
Infection follows. Continuous stand
ing on very dry floors may also cause
this trouble, while In some cases It is
apparently caused by a contraction
of the hoof.
When the horse is shod with high
heel and toe calks or the wall of the
hoof is allowed to grow very long and
the horse stands on hard floor so that
there is no pressure on the frog of
the foot, the condition of the frog Is
impaired and it becomes subject to
Infection and disease. Cases of thrush
need a dry, clean stall.
Trim the hoof properly, remove the
diseased parts and apply a strong dis
infectant over the sole of the foot.
Any of the coal tar disinfectants may
be used full strength. Pure carbolic
acid may be used, care being taken
that It does not ran down the heel and
burn the skin.
After the first strong disinfectant,
calomel should be dusted over the dis
eased surface and some thick clay ap
plied to the entire sole.
Working Brood Mares.
If mares are kept at light work the
last few weeks they are benefited by
being worked right up to foaling time.
Brood mares are injured by severe
work which requires them to strain or
over-exert. Backing heavy loads is
not a suitable task for mares heavy in
foal. In most years enough mares
will miss getting in foal to take care
of the heaviest work. They are best
off if rested for ten days of a couple
of weeks after foaling.
Whey for Pigs.
Ordinary whey is worth not mors
than half as much as skim milk or
buttermilk when fed the pigs. Most
of the muscle-building material Is
taken out of milk by cheese, and the
resulting whey is very poor in muscle
builders, as compared with ordinary
Tdilk. It takes about a gallon and a
half of whey to equal the feeding
v iue of one pound of corn or barley
