Do yon know that by a simple choice of feeds you can Bavo from !> to i6 per cent, of tho cost of wintering your cows, calves, horses and chickens. There In needed more definite knowledge about the composi? tion and digestibility of foods, for both plants and animals, and i he sooner tho farmers of this county post themselves about these matters the more saving to themselves in actual cash paid out. The average farmer feeds the feed he has or the most eon vuniuut to gel regardless ofjtho actual food value of them com? pared with their price, or with tho price of other foods of of ten it much higher food value, though costing no more. There is just as much sense in buying feetl by name, as, "mixed chop" "red star," "egg producer," as there is in buying a horse by name. Why not ap? ply the same business sense in ! buying feed us you do in bur? in:;; the horse io consume the feed. A food is iliut substance or compound which when taken into the body, and assimttlated by digestion furnishes strength and material for tlto body use. In other words il is lite digesti? ble protein, corbo hydrates ami fats i it plants and animals. Protein,corbo hydrates, und fats are the names given to the things in food that supply the hotly with its wants. With this clearly fixed in our minds it is easy to under? stand that all foodn vary in the amount of those three things they contain. Tho amount of these three things in food de torminu the actual food value of any given product. Here we can readily see that the food value of a product is one thing, and its market value may bo and often is quiet another thing. The food value of a product is determined by a chemical test of the digestible amount of Protein corbo hydrates and fats it contains, while the market value is determined by the vur ible laws of supply, Iransporta' lion and demand. The footl value of given prod? uct in all cases is the same; for example the food value of corn is the same at all tunes, wheth? er corn cost fifty cents per bush? el or five dollars. The value of 100 pounds of shelled corn in food is, 7.'.* lbs. protein; C?.7lbs. corbo hydrates and I 3ibs. fat. The market vultio is about $t.5o. Now consider this, tho valtio of 100 pounds of cotton seed meal in food is 37 (libs protein 21 lbs.corbo hydrates,and 9. Gibs, fat. The market value of cot? ton seed meal is about $3.25 per hundred pound. Now since the vnluo of any product is judged mostly by its proteiu contents and proportion of fat it will at once bo seen that while cotton seed meal ic mono than $20.00 per ton cheaper than corn, it in moro than twine as valuable as feed. This i? a fact that every foed er ought to know und net upon. Cotton seed meal being of a very highly concontraled na-. turo must ho fed with euro tut it is n very rich feed. My next article will deal with cotton seed meal an it portion of a mixed feed for homes and cattle, but not milk cows. Ka? tions for milk cows will ho a separate d iscussioii.

Burglars Hob Two Stores. t?n last Wednesday night burglars again raided l?g Stone Cap, after a period of a few months, and entered I he stores or W. T. Mahalley and Qoodloe Brothers. Entrance was gained as usual bj boring a large hole through the doom so as to turn the lock. Good; loe's store was entered by the back door and only a few arti? cles of clothing was taken, at least that was all that could be missed. That t be burglars were lunatiirs is evident from the fact that they made a futile attempt to open a large iron safe in this store. The biggest part of the raid, however, was on the grocer) store of Mr. Mabalfey jus! across the si reit. The cash register was forced opened and left on the siile walk, which contained a few pennies. A considerable amount of pork and bams were missing, w hich was found later but lied in the ground on the river bank. This was discovered by one of Mr. Mahatfe_v s boys who was look? ing for a money drawer that was taken from I Ii e store. Every ell'ori by the authorities to find it clue have been futile but they ate still working on the case and hope to within a few days to Und lire guilty parties. The work of these burglars is much on the order of those that robbed other stores here a few months ago. The brace and bit appeals to be their fa vorite tool to gain entrance. They attempted t 0 enter the front of tioodloe's store hut failed and went t o the back Where they encountered little trouble in getting in. It is to be hoped thai the town authorities will keep up a diligent search for these ciimi mils, as it is beginning to be a common Illing here lor a store to he robbed.
