When Sows Are Given Best of Feed
and Care This Is Good Way to
Increase Production.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
It is common practice among farm
ers to require their sows to produce
two litters a year. Although the sows
have had good care, they will natural
ly be run down somewhat In condition,
because the greater portion of the feed
consumed has been utilized for the
production of milk.
The sow needs a rest before she Is
bred again, and the time for this Is
between the weaning and breeding pe
riods. Intelligent feeding will bring
the sow from a thin condition Into a
good, strong, vigorous condition In a
short time. When this is done she will
be In proper condition to assume her
duty when breeding time arrives. If
the sow is bred iff a thin, run-down
condition, she must resume work im
mediately, and she will naturally be
weak and subject to the inroads of dis
ease. A little cold contracted in this
condition may cause death, while a
strong, healthy sow will resist such
attacks. It Is the general belief that
sows in good vigorous breeding condi
tion conceive more readily, thus short
ening the farrowing period for the
herd. Alfalfa, rape, clover, or any pas
ture which is palatable to swine, with
some grain In addition, is excellent
feed for bringing the sow back to
breeding condition.
There is no good reason why a sow
should not produce two Utters a year
when properly handled. To accom
plish this the sow should be bred to
farrow, say, for example, in March, and
bred again to farrow the early part
of September. A sow bred about No
vember 15 will farrow about March ff
to 9. The pigs should nurse eight
weeks. The sow should be rebred by
May 20 so as to farrow on or after
September 8. The pigs conld then
nnrse until November 3. The chances
for profitably rearing two crops of pigs
from a sow annually are undoubtedly
far better in regions of mild climate
and short winters than where the win
ters are long and severe.
In Feeding Trials at Wisconsin Station
Produced Larger Gains for Given
Amount of Feed.
(Prepared by thé United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
In feeding trials with sheep at the
Wisconsin station, soy beans produced
larger gains for a given amount of feed
and a heavier clip of wool. In one ex
periment two lots of ten lambs each
Sheep Like Soy-Bean Forage as Much
aa the Meal.
were fed the same roughage. One lot
received shelled corn and whole soy
beans in equal proportions, while the
ether received the same quantities of
shelled com and whole oats. The av
erage gain of each lamb during a pe
riod of 12 weeks was 16.2 pounds when
soy beans constituted a part of the
ration, and but 13.7 pounds when oats
were used. A pound of gain was pro
duced on 6.11 pounds of grain and 7.11
pounds of roughage in the soy-bean ra
tion, while 7.28 pounds of grain and
8.62 pounds of roughage were required
In the oats ration. In another experi
ment the same rations were fed for 12
weeks to two lots of nine lambs each.
The lot receiving the soy-bean ration
gained 119 pounds In weight and pro
duced 95.1 pounds of wool, as com
pared with 71 pounds increase in
weight and a production of 81.3 pounds
of wool for the lot receiving the oats
ration. The second lot also consumed
more feed per pound of gain.

Roads That Stand Traffic In Normal
Times Now Called Upon to With
stand Motortrucks.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Apparently the point has been
reached where the demands of traffic
have exceeded the strength of the
average road to meet them. High
ways designed to withstand the
pounding of ordinary loads, that have
stood up under imposts they were In
tended to sustain, no longer appear
to be adequate to meet the present
ly conditions. Congestion on our
railways, possibly more acute In some
sections than in others, has put upon
our roads a transportation burden nev
er expected and consequently not pro
vided for by the engineers who design
ed the highway systems of the states.
Roads have been designed with the
same care as given to other structures
and with the same regard for the pur
poses for which they were constructed
and the burdens they were called upon
to bear. Widespread failure is dem
onstrative of the fact that roads can
not carry unlimited loading. Their ca
pacity Is limited. If it is exceeded
habitually and constantly, then they
cannot survive.
The products of our farms and of
our factories must be moved. The
wants of our urban dwellers must be
met. But the needs of our country in
volved in this great conflict are para
mount to the needs of single communi
ties, and thus when avalanches of
freight destined to fill the greater ne
cessity made imperative the partial
closing of our vast system of rail trans
portation to the smaller, the relief ap
peared to be in the motortruck and the
highway. Single light units expanded

With Load
Into great fleets, then grew Into heav
ier nnits that, in turn, developed into
long trains. From horse-drawn ve
hicles with concentrated loads of prob
ably three tons at most, traveling at
the rate of four miles an hour, sprung
almost overnight the heavy motortruck
with a concentrated load of from eight
to 12 tons, thundering along at a
speed of 20 miles an hour. The result?
The worn and broken threads that bind
our communities together. The solu
tion? That is the problem that con
fronts the men who will be called up
on to meet the ever-growing demands
upon our highways and to devise reg
ulations fair to those who pay for their
construction and to those who pay for
their use.
Those Needing Surfacing Will Soon
Pay for Themselves in Improved
Marketing Conditions.
It costs something to put roads In
order, to surface those that need sur
facing, but they will pay for them
selves in increased land values and
Improved marketing conditions. The

Public Rarely Notices Drainage and
Hidden Features That Tend to
Conserve Roads.
The public appreciates only repairs
to the surface and rareiy notices the
drainage and hidden features that con
serve a road. One heavy load of lum
ber hauled in wet weather will undo
the work of weeks of faithful work on
the part of the repair man.
Plan for Dragging Roads.
It is an easy matter to have an
agreement so each farmer will drag
the road in front of his farm. This
would maintain the road till the regu

intervals or till the commissioner conld
make the necessary repairs.

Persecuted Belgian Cardinal Always
Confident That God Would 3ave
the Unhappy Country.
Cardinal Mercier, archbishop of Ma
lines, Belgium, was not actually im
prisoned by the Germans, but his free
dom was restrained. His offense was
the issuing of a pastoral letter to his
people In January, 1915, In which he
said: "I have gone through most of
the places in my diocese which have
been wasted, . . . What I have
seen of the ruins and the ashes passes
anything that, in spite of my most
acute fears, I could ever have imag
ined. . . . Churches, schools, char
itable institutions, hospitals, convents,
to a considerable number, are unfit for
use or are in ruins. Whole villages
have almost disappeared. . . . God
will save Belgium, my brothers, we
cannot doubt it. Let us say, rather,
he Is saving her. Is there a single
patriot who does not feel that glory
has come to Belgium? Which of us
wdnld have the courage to tear out
the last page of our history? Which
of us can look without pride on the
splendor of the glory that our mur
dered country has won?"
