HALLOWEEN PARTY.
How to Have Jolly Good Fun on
Oct. 31.
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

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

The extracted honey when stored In
cans or barrels can be placed In cel

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.

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

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

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.
