B. RUSHING.) ■he feeding of breeding ewes is an ■ration that I And Is not thoroughly ■erstood by many farmers, especially ■e who have Just a few sheep as a K line. ■ see Aocks too often that are all Ining together, the ewes that are Heeled to raise lambs for the market I to supply the future breeding ■s, and the others that are being Kiared (or the market, all feeding Bn the same kind and quantity of Id, and running together. ■his practice I have found to be a ly bad one, as the breeding ewes, It ■ intend to get the best results, re ■o entirely different feeding. Iwes that are carrying young lambs luld be fed on teed that will tend to lelop the young as well as nourish I mother, while those Intended for I market should be ted more on fat ing foods. K Is a mistake to overfeed ewes ■ lambs, as It is underfeed. Ilso it is not best to allow the breed- I ewes to run with the rest of the Ik, as they are too often worried ■i the others. Ibere is another point in the han- Ig of sheep that is, I think, too often llected, which may to some who le never tried It seem rather silly, I that Is to never allow them to run Ithe same pasture tong at a time. Ihey do much better when they are Ingcd from one pasture to another ly often. Iheep like a fresh short bite and In they are changed from one pas le to another every little while they le Just the kind of grazing they lit. This is especially valuable with leding ewes. Is to water for the sheep. Provide I very best water that is to be had, ler allowing them to drink from fcnant pools, which often contain ■ kinds of disease germs. In fact. Id they can possibly do otherwise ly will not drink such stuff. Ibe sheltering of breeding ewes Is HID FOUNDATION FOR RAISING HOGS t Should Be Changed Every Two or Three Years to In sure Proper Sanitation. iholcra, parasites and pneumonia some of the worst troubles hog eders hare to fight this time of r. The parasites, or worms as y are called, commonly, are always h the hogs, more or less. It will impossible to eradicate cholera n the swine Industry, according to F. 9. Schoenleber, state veteiin in of Kansas, before the breeders I be able to rid their stock of para is. Pneumonia may be prevented keeping the hogs from taking cold, logs are kept for years on the same generation after generation until the soil becomes satu ed with the different parasites and ir eggs. With such surroundings a ;is certain to be affected. The ani ls look scrawny and cholera Is med for their condition. Sanitation Is the foundation of suc sful hog raising. A hog lot should plowed frequently, and thoroughly infected. Every two or three years i lot should be changed to anew lo lon. A hog Isn’t dirty In Its habits, given half a chance It will keep an. )ne thing few persons know about og: It requires twice the breathing ice for its weight as a horse or v. A hog can stand only half the ?osure. Its fat may seem like a nket, but the blood is the heat of animals. A hog gets chilled easily cause of the poor surface circula n, contracts pneumonia, dies and olera is credited with another vie i simple remedy for worms is a xture of wood ashes, salt, and alr iked lime, mixed about equal parts, won’t do the hogs an Injury if al fed to eat all they wish. This mix re will help also to tone the system. Best Thermometer. The thermometer must be made In ch a way as to be easily read. The ijorlty of thermometers put out th incubators require the best of es and light to find where the mer ry stops. Especially is this true len you rise in the night to Inspect itching conditions. A white back ound does not give enough con ist to the mercury. The background ould be of some color that will al w you to read the figures at s.ome •tance sometimes overdone; they do not re qlure much shelter unless the weather gets bad, I have constructed on my farm sev eral sheds and windbreaks where the ewes can go when cold storms in the fall and early winter come up. I allow them the freedom of the pas ture during the day time and they know when they need to go to shelter as well or better than I do, and I al ways let them be the judge. Of course when the time of drop ping comes It Is best to keep them In small pens for a few days, but unless the weather is very bad It Is not best to keep them too closely conAned, as It will tend to make them, tender and, as the young lambs are rather tender, anyway, everything that will strength en them should be provided for them. If you wonder why your yearllngv do not fatten readily, an examination of their mouths will doubtless show that they are shedding their Arst teeth and cannot eat well. It does not pay to grind feed for sheep. In fact, they do better when they grind their own. Nothing better than turnips for sheep, and nothing Is more easily raised. More sheep are made sickly and weak by improper ventilation than by exposure. A sheep does not mind cold weather so long as It Is not wet weather. Force the lambs after they are tour months old If you want to get the best market prices. Wo have seen some good orchards destroyed by pasturing sheep In them when the trees were very small. Sheep will Injure trees by rubbing against them and eating off the bark, and nothing but a wire netting wjll prevent them from doing it. Thg ewe should be kept In moderate ly good Aesh, and at lambing time should be strong and able to take care of her lamb. A sickly lamb at weaning time sel dom grows Into a profitable sheep. TANKAGE AN IDEAL BROODJOW RATION When Mixed With Com Strong, Healthy Pigs Are Produced at Minimum Cost. Ten or fifteen years ago there was considerable complaint of tankage causing trouble when fed to breed sows. These complaints seemed to have been due to a low grade of tankage, or feed ing it in too large amounts. During recent years there has been very little complaint. At the lowa station they have found, after several years of careful experi menting, that a mixture of about fif teen parts of corn to one part of tankage makes an Ideal brood sow ra tion, producing strong, healthy pigs at a minimum of expense, with feed prices as they generally prevail. If the farmer feeds his average sow not more than one-half pound of tank age daily, and If he depends for the most part on a ration of about fifteen parts of corn to one part of tankage, he will get good results from tankage. He should be sure, however, that he Is giving a good grade of tankage. The fertilizer grade of tankage, when fed to sows, often produces bad results. LITTLE PIGS NEED PROPER ATTENTION Youngsters Often Get Tangled Up in Deep Straw and Are Crushed by the Sow. It is best to have the sows farrow at nearly the same time. And then the owner can watch them day and night during farrowing time. There should be just enough bedding for comfort and dryness, says Swine Breeders' Journal. Cut straw or chaff is best. Little pigs often get tangled in deep straw and are either crushed by the sow or die from exposure. Olve the sow as little attention as possible while she Is farrowing unless she must have assistance. In severe weather place the pigs as fast as they come in a basket In which a blanket Is laid over a warm stone. Keep them well covered, and after all are born and have become warm and dry, take them to their mother and place each one at a teat. Then cover the mother and pigs. During the first 48 hours watch carefully, and if a pig strays from its mother, put It back against her where it will be warm. THE EAST MISSISSIPPI TIMES, STARKVILLE, MISS. RATHER ROUGH ON FATHER Daughter's Remark Might Have Been Construed Unkindly by the Casual Listener. Since Fred had become a sopho more, and was therefore a college "man,” he had given himself patron izing airs toward Sister May. who had been his guide, philosopher and friend during boyhood. Vexed by his haughtiness, she was unmercifully quizzing him the other evening at dinner “Has our ‘man’ made up his mind," she inquired, "ns to what profession he will honor after a while?” “Why, yes, little one," Fred re sponded, with his most aggravating smile. “I have made up my mind to be a doctor, like grandfather and fa ther.” "You a doctor!" May sniffed scorn fully. "I'd like to know why not—lf I get my diploma?" asked Fred, still annoy ingly calm. “Well, you’ll never be a great sur geon, like father,” May Insisted. “Again, why not?" Fred smiled con descendingly. "You a surgeon like father!" May cried, vehemently. “Why, you big softy, you couldn't even kill a fly!” Nobody but father caught the sig nificance of the remark, and somehow he didn't mention It.

The governor of a southern state came to his office with a friend one morning to find a number of men wait ing In the anteroom. Pausing an In stant, he told a story that was a de cided “chestnut.” When he got inside the private office the friend said: “That was a horribly old one you sprung on those fellows " “I know It.” chuckled the governor, “but did you notice that one that laughed?” "Well, I noticed that three or four did." "Those,” said the governor, "are the fellows who won’t get In to see me. They are the ones who have favors to ask.” —Rehobotb Sunday Herald.

Children Cry for Fletcher’s Castoria Preventing Premature Burials. The fear of being burled alive al ways has been, and Is, so widespread that the French Academy of Science some years ago offered a prize equal to $7,500 for the discovery of some means by which even the Inexperi enced might at once determine wheth er, In a given case, death had ensued or not. A physician obtained the prize. He had observed the following well-known signs: If the hand of the suspected dead person is held towards a candle or other artificial light, with the fingers extended and one touching the other, and one looks through the spaces between the fingers towards the light, there appears a scarlet rod color where the Angers touch each other, due to the blood still circulat ing; It shows Itself through the tis sues which have not yet congested. When life Is entirely extinct, the phe nomenon of scarlet spaces between the Angers at once ceases. The most extensive and thorough trials estab lished the truth of his observation. RESINOL CERTAINLY DOES HEAL ECZEMAI In the past twenty years, literally thousands of physicians have written to tell us bow successful the resinol treatment Is for eczema and similar skin troubles. The Arst use of resinol ointment and resinol soap usually stops the itching and burning, and they soon clear away all trace of the eruption. No other treatment for the skin now before the public can show such a record of professional approval. Sold by all druggists.—Adv. The Way to Do.
