Fox Fails To Qualify.
Rockville. —There will be no Bull

Secretary of State within the time
specified by law a certificate of his
candidacy, consequently his name will
not appear on the official ballots of
the various counties of the district.
It is understood that 51 r. Fox's failure
to comply with the law was due to op
position of certain of the Bull Moose
leaders of the district to having a can
didate in the field. The names of four
candidates for Congress will appear
on tlie ballot in the Sixth district, the
candidates being David J. Lewis,

THE CITIZEN, FREDERICK. MD. ( FRIDAY,
1 PROFITABLE PRODUCTION OF BABY BEEF
ON FARM IN SOUTHWESTERN PART OF IOWA
Grade Beef-Breed Cows and Good Pure-Bred Angus Bulls Used as
Foundation Stock ior Operations—Pasture Provided
With Shade and Water.
..
\mSßm. ... I
Angus Grass-Fed Steers.
(By L. L. SHOEMAKER. In the Country
Gentleman.)
Judicious management, a knowledge
of cattle and values, and a natural lik
ing for the work have resulted in the
production of baby beef on a south
western lowa farm at a profit of S2O
a head for several successive years.
We used grade beef-bred cows and
good pure-bred Angus bulls as the
foundation stock for our operations.
We reduced the cost of keeping the
cows to a minimum in order to in
crease the profits on the finished calf.
The cows were fed on cheap, home
grown roughages, supplemented in
part by a grain ration consisting large
ly of corn and cottonseed meal fed in
moderate quantities during the last
few weeks prior to calving and con
tinued until the grass became well
grown in the spring. Care against
feeding cottonseed meal in heavy
quantities prior to calving lessened the
danger of abnormal calf birth. Feed
ing the cows largely on such roughage
as oat straw, corn fodder and clover
hay during the winter months, and let
ting them, remain on grass as much as
possible during the year, reduced the
cost of keeping them to S2S a year.
We managed to have most of the
calves come in the spring, from March
Ist to March 15th. and, under our sys
tem of managing the cows, they came
strong and vigorous. Keeping the cow
in good physical tone prior to calving
by feeding a ration strong in ash and
protein content so as to stimulate the
milk flow gave the calf a strong start
in life, and also kept the cow in such
condition as to tide her over the in
clement spring weather, which is the
hardest drain upon her. Through a (
careful management of the bull we ,
succeeded in having the calves come
within a short period of each other ,
He was never allowed to run with the |
cows during the day. A good blue
grass pasture was provided for him.
and a grain ration consisting of oats,
bran and cottonseed meal was given
during the heavy breeding season.
The calves were allow-ed to run on
the pasture with their mothers after
the grass had become well started in
the spring and until the flies had be
come bad and the grass no longer fur
nished an abundance of green feed.
The bull calves were then castrated,
and the entire lot were put in a well
grown blue-grass pasture. This was
provided with ample shade and avail
able fresh water, but they were allow
ed to nurse mornings and evenings
A grain ration consisting of oats, bran
and a small amount of shelled corn
was distributed in troughs convenient
ly placed in the pasture. As the
calves became older the grain ration
was gradually increased. Little trou
ble was experienced in getting them
to eat again, and they were soon eat
ing about three-fourths of a pound of
mixed grain per hundred pounds of
live weight. To this ration was added
a small amount of cottonseed meal
later in the fall. We found 'hat such
a ration gave the most desirable gains.
When the second crop of clover in
the bayfields arrived in the fall the
calves were changed to it from the
blue-grass pasture. After they had be
come accustomed to the new feed the
weaning was started, the cow being
returned occasionally so that she
would gradually dry up in good con
dition. The calves were allowed to
graze upon the clover until late fall.
In early winter they were given win
ter quarters. A well-drained lot, slop
| lng to the east and south and pro
! vided with an open shed and good wa
ter, furnished excellent conditions for
winter feeding. The shed floor was
kept well drained and bedded down
once a week; the water was warmed
during freezing weather, a very im
portant matter, and roughages were
supplied in generous amounts.
By the first of January our calves
weighed from 650 to 700 pounds and
were in thrifty, growthy condition,
though not fat. They had retained,
however, the natural calf fat which is
so necessary in making the best qual
ity of baby beef at a profit. The grain
ration was increased and cottonseed
meal was substituted for the oats,
making a grain ration of two thirds
Bells for Turkeys at Large.
Turkey raisers who live near woods
or rocky ledges have found the use
of turkey bells of great benefit in
frightening foxes, skunks and other
lovers of poultry from the flocks. Mrs.
C. S. Fox of Jefferson county, N Y.,
tested them thoroughly last season.
She allowed her turkeys the freedom
of the far*!. Although foxes, weasels,
etc., are common In the neighborhood,
she did not lose a turkey. The bells

corn and one-third cottonseed meal by
weight, fed at the rate of a pound per
hundred pounds of live weight.
Various roughages, all of which
were grown on the farm, were fed.
The corn fodder, usually shredded,
was fed in the early winter together
with clover hay, and later in the
spring oat straw was given instead of
the corn fodder.
The following summer the calves
were given a good blue-grass pasture
and in addition a liberal grain ration.
The ration was not changed in compo
sition from that previously fed. When
the grass was in the flush of growth
the grain ration was somewhat de
creased. During the entire grass sea
son personal attention was given to
the feeding so that the calves would
not be overfed. If overfed the cost
is not only increased but the steers
get out of condition and frequently
will not gain so well afterward.
They were ripe and well finished
beeves by September first and weigh
ed from 1,200 to 1,255 pounds, a de
sirable weight for such youngsters.
They commanded the top price for
such light-finished beeves. In com
puting the cost for our productions we
found that each calf had eaten from
27 to 30 bushels of corn, valued at
$16.20; 6 bushels of oats at $2.40; cot
ton seed meal. $7.50; grass $lO • hay
and fodder. $lO, which, together with
the cost of keeping the cow and the
interest, made a total cost for produc
tion of about $75. Our young stock
varied in price from $6.75 to $9 a
hundredweight, making an average of
$7.50, which gave us a cash value of
about $96 a head. This left a total
of over S2O clear profit, charging our
work against the manure produced and
the satisfaction of seeing the grains
and roughages marketed at home and
the land appreciably increased in fer
tility and condition.
SELECTING GOOD
DAIRY ANIMALS
Systematic Plan of Examining
Calves Needed to Bring Herd
Improvement.
(By W M KELLY.)
Many dairymen make a practice of
raising every heifer calf and fail to get
results. Then they select the heifer
calves from the best producing cows
and get nearer to w-hat they want, but
still, there are many inferior cows
raised by them.
It is not until we begin to carefully
examine every heifer calf that we can j
conduct any systematic plan of Im
proving the qimlity of the dairy herds,
for, unless the- calves are good indi- j
viduals and have stamina and strong,
vigorous constitutions, no matter how
liberally they are fed. some will
fail to come up to the qualities of their
dams.
Every heifer calf should be care
fully examined and if they show signs
of weakness they should not be raised.
Open their mouths, and if you find,
after examining their teeth, that you
can see but four of the milk teeth, you
can make up your mind that such a
calf is hardlj worth raising.
Many raise their calves, but few turn
out to be profitable cows. Next ex
amine the navel and teats. If the
teats are not placed In their right
position do fcot waste your time and
food trying to make a good cow out
of such a calf.
When we find a heifer calf that
comes up tc our standard or require
ments and when we decide to keep it
we must not forget that its value as
a cow depends lar/ely upon the treat
ment that it receives during the first
two years o'f its life.
Calves must be well cared for and
fed in such a manner that they will
never lose their calf flesh.
After they are a few months old
they should be turned out and allowed
plenty of exercise and good air so that
they may build up strong muscles and
good strong organs of respiration.
soon become accustomed to their
neckwear. Another factor which
makes them of value, so Mrs. Fox
tells us, is that the turkeys can be
easily located. The tinkle of the
bells can be beard for quite a dis
tance. She uses these bells on the
hens, and when the flocks are full
grown, as in the fall, the bells on the
matsre fowls serve for the flocks.

HIS MIND UP IN THb CLOUDS
Professor Imagined Appeal Was From
Fido, and the Situation Became
Embarrassing.
A great lover of animals, Professor
Dryasdust was much given to having
his pet dog sitting beside him at meal
times eating tidbits from his own lit

The other evening he was at a dinner
party, and his partner was a very
great lady, who was proud of her
title.
Mut the professor paid absolutely no
attention to her. His mind had
switched off on to some abstruse point
ano he was lest to the world over the
problem.
The duchess did not approve of this,
end presently, to attract his attention,
she pulled him gently by the sleeve.
Then the professor woke up. Grab
bing a half-picked chicken bone from
his plate, he thrust it under her
ptartled nose.
“Don't bother just now, Fido!” he
Said curtly. “Here, take this and go
and ept it on the mat, like a good dog

Louisiana, Mo.: —“I think a woman

and had eleven doc
tors. I had drag-
ging down pains.
pains at monthly periods, bilious spells,
I and was getting worse all the time. I
j would hardly get over one spell when I
J would be sick again. No tongue can tell
what I suffered from cramps, and at
times I could hardly walk. The doctors
said I might die at one of those times,
but I took Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegeta
ble Compound and got better right away.
Your valuable medicine is worth more
| than nountains of gold to suffering wo
men. ’’—Mrs. Bertha Muff, 603 N. 4th
Street, Louisiana, Mo.
Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Com
pound, made from native roots and herbs,
contains no narcotic or harmful drugs,
; and to-day holds the record of being the
most successful remedy for female ills wa
know of, and thousands of voluntary
testimonials on file in the Pinkham
laboratory at Lynn,Mass., seem to prova
this fact. v
