Q. Should a horse have all the hay

A. W. B. Richards, Prof, of Ani
mal Industry, North Dakota Agricul

and eause themselves injury. It is
more essential to limit the amount of
hay a work horse receives because it
is not well for a horse to work on too
full a stomach. Colts under two years
of age should be fed all the hay that
they will eat. The rule followed in
feeding hay„by most successful feeders
is a pound of hay for every one hun
dred pounds the horse weighs.

NOT CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE.
The latest Instance of errors la
spelling by a class qualifying for ad
mittance to a leading western univer
sity Is widely Interpreted by the press
as an evidence of Insufficient training
In that Important element by aca
demies and high schools. We think a
little study of the showing may greatly
diminish the force of the this opinion.
The university In question is of a size
that makes 150 a moderate estimate of
those seeking to qualify in the fresh
man class. To such a class a list of
100 words was submitted as a .test of
spelling. The list of errors shows 12
words mlspelled 30 times, or an aver
age of 2ft times to each word, says
Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph. But If
there were 160 students spelling 100
words this would Indicate a percent
age of error to all the words spelled
by all of the students of one-tenth of
one per cent. Of course, this calcula
tion as to the proportion of students
who were weak In spelling Is guess

The New York city employe who
wanted his salary cut 16 per cent, was
not such a freak after all. He had a
string tied to the offer. What he asked
for was a general revision downward,
not to exclude the controller's own
pay, expressing a willingness to suffer
himself If the rest did, and explaining
why all of them ought td. Evidently he
felt safe in anticipating the answer,
which was a quick-fire decision by the
controller that he had no authority In
law to make any such change of sal
