This Jolly Halloween party given last year may offer suggestions to the hostess of 1918. On the invitations to the party were Inscribed the following jingle done In fantastic lettering: When you arrive next Tuesday night* Oh. be prepared n> tell The worst adventure, fearful fright) That ever you befell! The rooms were gorgeous with ar,- ttunn leaves, golden yellow pumpkin Jnek-o'-la litems ami fantastic black cal candle shades. An upstairs room which was occupied had been turned Into a "chamber of horrors." The walls were hung with sheets, then witches, spi ders, bats, owls and eats had been CUI from bluck paper, almost life sized, and pasted on them: the lights were shad ed with n green paper that gave a most ghastly glow. In thi< weird place the guests were assembled to relate their "horror" tales, a black cat and her family of Jet black kittens played about, adding Interest to the seem-. As the people entered this spooky place ii ghostly figure held out Its band In greeting. A white kid glove bad been Stuffed with line saw dust and laid on tee for hours, a round stick was fastened to it. wbi< h the ghost had concealed under the flowing sleeve dra peries. This is an old trick, but one that always works well. When the stories were about finished a strange rattllna was heard at the door and two little scarlet ' lad Imps rushed into the room and chased ev erybody down to the dining room. The table was lovely with a huge pumpkin coach drawn by twelve chocolate mice, which cavorted about 'he table driven by a black cat coa 'buian The coach was dip 1 with grapes and yellow chrysanthemums. At en h place there was an Individual lantern made from an orange The lionbou holders were yellow me cups ottui hod to pumpkin wl Is drawn bj black cats. The host ess said she had mad - these from crape paper, cutting out the figures, mount ing them on cardboard, then touching them up a bit with black and gold paint. These wonderful crape papers are a great help to hostesses, as the napkins come decorated for nearly ev ery special day in the calendar and they are very decorative. A simple but "Hnlloweeny" menu was served, consisting of coffee, crab meat a in Newburg In the chafing dishes, cheese, olives, rider, popcorn, salad (Waldorf) in red hollowed out apples, glngercakes and a huge cake containing the usual mystic symbols— namely, a ling, thimble, coin and but ton. On a stand by the fireplace there was a huge bowl filled with chestnuts, raisins and apples for roasting. It. was all jolly and Informal, as Halloween parlies should be. Che Giiensburg Dawn.

A Merry Christmas A Happy New Year There is an inclination on the p;irt of members of the church to shirk re sponsibilities and duties devolving upon them. They grow Inx ;ind lame, old and maimed, and pass through life with an idea that God will bear the burdens and save regardless of their sins ol omission and commission. Don't deceive yourself ! You can deceive men, but you cannot deceive God. You may stumble into the paths ol sin and folly, you may do much that is wrong, but don't deny Christ, confess in full faith prayer to Him and ask His pardon, believing, and your sins will be forgiven. Don't deceive yourself ! ()ne great fault with all of us is the lack of human kindness, brotherly love, and fairness. We too much prefer to talk and talk and listen to a lot of idle talk, all the time drawing on our imagination like a bank account, and usually we look at the blackest side and naturally see things that never transpire. In other words we are crossing the bridge before we get to it. lie fair and honest. Some of us, yes, too many of us, spend so much of our time in worldly mat ters, that we have very little time to devote to the work of the Master, who should have our best work and our best consideration. Open up your heart to God ! All The News and the Truth about it FROM HORN TO HOOF. Probably no single cause tends more to check milk secretion than the fail ure to remove all the milk at the time of milking, says Hoard's Dairyman. Cows should be salted at least once a week. The best plan is to have salt under cover where the cows can get to it at will. Itock salt, of course. Is best for this purpose. Knots are perhaps most valuable dur ing the first part of the fattening pe riod, particularly with cattle. From forty to fifty pounds per day may be fed at first: then the amount should be gradually diminished. Professor Deltrich of the Illinois ex periment station says that the proper water supply for a pig ranges from twelve pounds dally per 100 pounds live weight at the time of weaning to four pounds per 100 pounds live weight during the fattening period. Oats and peas make excellent bay. They may lie sown In the spring aa soon as the ground can be worked— about one and v half bushels of each to the acre The peas will be ready to cut about July I. when the oats are yet in the milk stage and the peas Just forming In the pods Try The Dawn for one year. And Permanent Pasture For the Bottr. it will pay you to go to some trou hie to i(et au acre lot well set With permanent grass for the boar to run in.

Sorghum is one of the best crops for soiling, especially for dairy cows anil swine. Every farmer should huve an acre or two of very rich bind to plant in sorghum for late feeding There are very few crops equal to gorgh In yield when conditions are favorable tor it Profit fn Sheep Farming. Although I hare bought and sold and kept many thousands of cattle and sheep, l have never lost one by dis ease, writes a correspondent of the Farm Journal. This shows that live .stock is much healthier than man. i have rarely or never dosed a sick nnl mal. Sheep have paid better than any animals 1 have ever handled. On 00 other class of slock have I been able to double; my money so easily as in the case of sheep. No. 52 THE LAW OF NATURE.

TANKAGE FOR HOGS. Fed With Discretion, It Is a Profitable Pork Producer. A greul many farmers are beginning to use tankage. I Bnd ii beneficial iiud In a large degree profitable where Imgs are kept, writes 11. W. Swope in the American Agriculturist. There isn't anything about g 1 tankage or meat meal that is in any way injurious to hoys, whether young or old. Good takage contains over BO per cenl pro tein, and for thai reason it answers an important question in animal economy, it Is a good feed to use with corn and highly palatable. It need not he led in large quantities, and. especially >vhon beginning to feed tankage, one part tankage to itbotll ten parts of corn Is a very satisfactory ration. Tankage is animal matter from which the grease and oil have been ex tracted. This consists of meat scraps and bone from meat markets and pack lug houses picked up fresh in a large tank and thoroughly cooked at a high temperature. The grease is removed from the surface and tankage is then dried thoroughly, after which it is ground, screened and placed in lings for shipment. The high temperature employed in cooking destroys all dis ease germs that might lie present. Tankage, therefore, all summed up is a pure, safe feed for hogs. It contains 8 to 10 per cent moisture, and in a good, dry place it can be kept for an indefinite period of time. I have fed tankage to hogs of all ages for several years now and with excellent results in every case. With the high cost of feed a little tankage fed with the regular ration to the hogs each day will be found a good feed investment. The cost of feeding tankage seems to increase a trifle ev ery year, but 1 am sure it will pay all Who can use it to do so as long as the price is as reasonable as it is today, considering its protein contents com pared with other feeds. Tankage may be fed dry, either alone or with grain rations. I have found it very satisfactory in a thin slop. One station says that a ration made up of one part tankage and six ot eight parts corn has proved to be the most satisfactory, and a greater gain per 10(1 pounds was secured in thi.- ■nanner of feeding A Quick Growing Pig. I bought a Dm Jersey pig on March I, 1013. The pig was two and one half months old ond weighed twen ty pounds, writes a Louisiana farmei in the Form and Home. The first month i fed one pint ol chops mixed with the same amount Ol wheat shorts and half a gallon ol swill three times a day. The second mouth 1 added one pint of chops antl a quart of swill, making six pints ol chops, three pints of shorts and nine quarts of swill per day. 1 fed the same amount of food up till May Hi. Then i began feeding two pints of both chops and shorts and a gallon of swill three times per day. My pig stays In a Ber muda grass pasture all the time and has plenty of fresh water. The lirst two weeks my pig gui I fifteen pounds, April H he weighed sixty pounds April he weighed ninety pounds, on July 11 be weighed 225 pounds, a gam of 800 pounds since the Ist of March; lug. 20 Prince weighed 31(1 pounds and on Sept.

WINTERING BEEF BREEDING COWS Ten Sb.ortb.orri and ten Aberdeet Angus ' ous were fed 140 (lays ut the Pennsylvania station on ensilage ami cottonseed meal alone, says the lowa Homestead. These cows consumed ap proximately sixty pounds of ensilage and one pound of cottonseed meal per bead dally. Inning this period they made an average dally gain of 1.17 pounds per head. The ensilage was fed twice a day and the cottonseed meal once daily. There was less than 1 per cent waste In feeding In this manner. These cows were allowed to run loose In v shed that was well bedded, the experi ment lasting from iJec. 1 to April 10. It required four tons of silage to winter each cow in this manner, this being equivalent to one-half acre of corn yielding forty bushels per acre or one-third of an acre of corn if the land produced at the rate of sixty bushels per acre. Computing ensilage at $3.00 per ton the cost of wintering the twenty cows on ensilage was $280 or $14 per head. In addition the cows consumed cottonseed meal to the value of $42. With this Hem mc luded the average cost per head was approxi mately .SHI. Attention might be called t" the fact that during the period cov ered by this experiment the weather conditions were unusually severe, the temperature falling as low as 2.'t de- One of the peculiarities of the Hereford is thet on account of the strong constitution the sire im presses his progeny with the color and markings of the breed in al mosl every case, no matter what the bread of the dam may be. It is in the Uuch more than anything else that the true Hereford Is iden tified, for it has not the thin skin and light flesh that so many In ferior oattla have. Almost the only breed with which the Hereford does not impress his color is the Angus. They divide the honor, having the black body of the one and the white face of the other, but the hide has not the distinctive touch that a well bred Hereford steer should have. The Illustration shows a Hereford steer of high quality. gree below zero at times. These cows when turned to grass made satisfac tory daily gains, indicating that ensi lage when fed in large quantities, as was the ease In this instance, is in no manner whatever injurious. It may be of interest to know that 8,840 pounds of manure were produced during the 140 day period by each cow. This computed at $1.50 per ton means a value of $6.83. As each cow gained IH4 pounds in weight this in crease of 5 cents a pound amounts to K8.20, It is true that this added weight lias in reality no intrinsic value unless the cow is marketed, but it does mean that the cow goes on to the grass In a good fleshy condition. Those of our readers who have n supply of ensilage at band might profit by a perusal of the results obtained In this mst c. If an experiment sta tion can obtain these economical re sults on ensilage and a small amount of cottonseed meal daily there Is no reason why there will not be a similar outcome If the same plan is carried out under average farm conditions. Butter is suited primarily because the popular taste demands it and in cidentally for its preservative effects, although the latter are not very mark ed. The uniform incorporation of va rying amounts of salt as the trade demands is very important so far as the appearance of the Imtter is con cerned. It has been my experience thai salt distributed as uniformly as possible among the granules worked to the point where they are in a com pact mass, with the moisture glisten ing on the surface, then allowed to stand for twenty or thirty minutes, then worked about an equal length of time more, will give a more complete incorporation of salt and do away with quite a little of the pressure necessary If worked in from the drat without al lowing time for the salt to dissolve. It Pays to Know. A certain dairyman bus increased the yield of bis herd to a wonderful extent by the use of a pure bred sire, says the National Stockman. This bull's heifers anil young cows have proved to be re markable milkers and lie is now a very valuable animal though no longer young. The point in all this is that the dairyman found out the bull's value by the simple process of keeping a record if what each member of the herd pro duced. Without such a record he might have sold the heifers too cheap, ho might have let the bull go to the butcher or he might have let some wiser man have him. It always pays to know what dairy cows are doing, and it pays in several different ways. There is gold lv manure, but you can't collect it while it lies in the barn lot.
