Facts that Every Farmer
With Cattle and Horses,
Should Know.
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.
Write for circulars on fceils
and feedings.

Jim Ycary Dies.
Jim Veary, who was snot and
fntallv wounded by Robert
Stout at Cadet on S iturdav
night, Nov. 26th, tiled on Tues?
day night following, o u e of
the bullets having penetrated
the bowels which caused his
death. His recovery was re?
garded as doubtful from the be?
ginning, but physicians, never?
theless, done everything possi?
ble to stive him. 'The body was
hurried in the graveyard above
the Tannery.
Stout was given a preliminary
hearing before Mayor W. II. |
Nickels, dr.. and according to j
the evidence given by sev- j
oral witnesses, it was found I
the act was committed in self 1
defense and he was released.
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
