Corn Is one of the best fattening grains we have, but It is one of the poorest grains for growing animals when fed to the exclusion of other products. It cannot be used for the formation of bone and muscle, because it contains no nitrogen, one of the ele ments of muscular tissue. Further more, corn Is deficient in ash constitu ents, and consequently In bone form ing material. It Is probably not putting the matter too strongly when we say that fully 40 per cent of the veterinary Inquiries concerning hogs can be answered by directing the inquirers to feed less corn and more nitrogenous feeds, such as oats, barley or wheat or some of the byproducts, such as brau, oil meal or tankage, depending upon their respec tive market values. So loug as farmers continue to feed their swine, especially during the period of rapid growth, a ration composed almost exclusively of corn just so long will they continue to have disease among their hogs. Clover as a,Dairy Feed. Clover if cut early or at the right stage and cured well makes a rough feed for the cow that Is exceeded only by alfalfa aud is, therefore, one of the most valuable rough feeds that we can raise for feet! for the dairy cow. It is very high lu protein, and when fed with ensilage and the common farm grains, with the addition of a very lit tle mill feed, such as wheat, bran or oil cake meal, it makes a ration that is commonly called baiauced. or. in other wonts, it helps to supply the required protein or nitrogen that is uecessary for the use of the cow in keeping up her full normal flow of milk for a long time. When feeding clover iu connection with eusilage it should be fed at the -loon hour aud the eusilage night and Phone, Interstate i36 B The Sherman Park GROCERY Fresh Fruits and Vegetables RECEIVED DAILY Our Eggs are shipped direct to us, and are guaranteed strictly fresh.

Poultry can be well fattened with much less than the many kinds of food some recommend, and it Is not neces sary to confine them in coops. Fatten them In a small yard away from the other poultry, keep the yard clean and also the coops used nights, which should be supplied with fresh litter often. To fatten quickly, vary the food as much as possible. Corn and oats ground fine, moistened with sweet milk or buttermilk, will fatten fast Corn and wheat are good, fed whole.
