winter season. Even though
an abundance of bedding is used on
cement floors, bad results seem to fol
low just the same.
There are few worse places for a
brood sow to farrow than on a cement
floor. She gathers the small amount
of bedding allowed her into a small
pile, beds on it and the newly born
pigs wriggle off on the bare floor,
which being slippery, prevents them
from getting on their feet, the cold
floor soon exhausts them, and they
It was with the object of overcom
ing these objections to the cement
floors that overlays were used.
Figs. 1 and 2 show two pens, each
10*14 feet, but with two different
forms of overlay. Fig. 1 shows an
overlay running across the center of
the pen this form was used because
of the outer door being .in the center
of the pen, thus leaving insufficient
room for the overlay in the corner.
This overlay is in two sections, each
two and one-half feet wide so that it
can be lifted easily in cleaning out
the pen or thrown out in the sun to
dry, or put in the loft for storage dur
ing the summer. The two sections are
held in place by four blocks tacked
on the two-by-fours at the bottom of
the partitions. This arrangement
leaves plenty of room for feeding at
the trough and space for the manure
near the door.
The greatest objection to this form
of overlay Is that because of its loca
tion between the trough and* door, the
pigs have to cross it frequently, thus
not only soiling it, but dragging the
bed off on the floor as well. This ob
jection is sufficient to urge strongly
against this form of overlay.
Fig. 2 shows an overlay 6x8 feet in
one corner of a pen, wlt^ the door In
the opposite corner.
This plan is possessed of the ad
vantages of providing more shelter for
the bed when the outer door is open
and the pigs can go In and out with
out crossing the bed. This latter form

Which hold the boards together. A
two by four was set up around the
outer edges of the overlay to hold the
bedding in place. These were nailed
to the boards below and strengthened
by triangular pieces of scantling fas
tened in the angle formed by the two
by-four and the board floor.
In the use of these overlays three
facts have been strikingly noticeable,
1. Pigs invariably use the overlays,
by preference, sleeping on the bare
boards if there should be no straw on
2. Of the 300 or 400 hogs that have

One of the blggefct mountain lions
•een to Oklahoma for years, measur
ing over nine feet from tip to tip and
weighing 176 pounds, was killed in a
cave to the gyp hills, ntar here, by
George Steubenvllle of Okeene.
He came upon the lion unexpected
ly, while exploring the cave with a
party of friends, and was armed only
with a twenty-two calibre revolver. It
had been known for some weeks that
a marauder of some sort, presumably
a mountain lion, was playing havoc
with poultry and calves. It had been
seen disappearing in the darkness sev
eral times, but no one had gone near
enough to get a shot at it.
Steubenvllle was the only one of
the party who was armed at all when
they came upon the beast, which was
evidently prepared to put up a stiff
fight. The cave was dimly lighted by
a lantern carried by the exploring
party, which made good marksmanship
difficult, but Steubenvllle was fortu
nate enough to hit the panther in the
eye, killing it instantly.
