STALLION OUT OF THE BREEDIN6 SEASON
m wêm X m i? y « mm Richelieu, Prize-Winning Belgian Stallion. »By W. L. BLIZZARD. Department of Animal Husbandry. Oklahoma A. and M. College. Stillwater.) Mkny stallions are at least partially ruined between seasons. This is due to improper feeding and care. Some men starve their stallions after the breeding season on the theory tnat they cannot afford to feed liberally when there is no income. This is cer tainly a mistake. It does not even re sult in a saving of feed, as it will cost more to put the horse back into the proper condition when the breeding season opens. It is cheaper to keep a horse in good flesh all the time than to allow him to run down during a part of the year and then by heavy feeding for a few months bring him back to the required condition. Crushed oats and bran with good hay is hard to beat. Ground corn or kafir, together with plenty of bran and oilmeal also makes a splendid ration. Horses that are overfed on corn or kafir are never sure foal-get ters. Bran is always a valuable sup plement to any grain ration. It re laxes the system generally, corrects or prevents digestive disorders, and at the same time furnishes an abundance of bone and tissue-building material. Soft, warm bran mashes once or twice a week will serve to keep the bowels in good condition, and a little epsom salts may be added. Roots should be used in some form during the fall and winter seasons. They certainly help to keep the stallion in good condition and to keep his digestive tract in a good, healthy condition. In the spring a few pounds of grass or other green feed may take their place. G Conditioning a stallion is not lay ing on flesh, but it is getting him in good health, improving his muscles • and putting plenty of vigor and vi ^ tality into him. The amount of grain that should bé ai ~t'C PRODUCT OF THE DAIRY COW Infection of Milk Comes From Body of Animal—Concrete Floor Is Most Sanitary for Barn. (Prepared by Dairy Division of Clemson College.) The Babcock test was, first an nounced to the world in i890. The greatest source of infection in milk comes from the body of the ani mal and the air of the stable. Anything that will'make it easier to clean the stable will aid in the pro duction of pure milk. The concrete floor is by long odds the most sanitary for a dairy barn and should be uséd wherever possible. In building a dairy barn, remember that one is providing a' place where human food is to be produced. Early breeding stunts growth. Heifers should be bred to drop their calves when about two years old or . older. As a rule, it is desirable to have cows go dry at least a month before calving. This has a beneficial effect on the calf. Dehorning is a good practice. It makes cows quiet and docile and saves them much pain that may be inflicted when horns are retained. Dairy cows have little spare flesh to protect them from the cold. Comfort able housing in winter Is, therefore, very important. The liquid manure of a cow Is much more valuable th'fln the so)ld. oe saved by having watertight floor ing and clean straw bedding. MANNER OF SEALING A SILO Where Silage Is to Stand for Some Time Before Feeding Covering of Some Kind le Made. <By J. G. WATSON. Missouri Colles« of Agriculture.) There is always some loss cm the top of the silage unless feeding Is be gun aa soon as the silo is filled. Where the silage is to stand tor some time be fore feeding it is customary to run in three or four loads to cornstalks from which (he ears have been removed. This material la packed thoroughly ; then a literal supply of water is added.' which will help to seal the silo, sad only a very small amount of waste will result.

It should be regulated by the man feeding the horse, and should be gov erned by the capacity and needs of the horse. A stallion should not be given more than he will clean up with in half an hour after feeding. Always leave him a little hungry. Do not over feed on hay, as it is not necessary to crowd the horse full of hay all the time. Do not stuff his manger full of hay once or twice a day and allow him to eat till he cleans it up That is a poor way to feed hay. Chopped hay. mixed with the grain, increases the ef ficiency of the ration. The horse should be supplied with plenty of good, fresh, clean water. During the hot weather the horse should be watered quite frequently. Overfeeding and lit tle or no exercise tends to cause swol len legs, scratches, grease; a wet stall causes thrush and canker. When you have done your part so far as feeding is concerned, remem ber that the horse needs exercise. If you have a paddock in which he can run, so much, the better. If there Is no other way to furnish exercise, the horse should be walked. He must have exercise if you expect results from him. A horse that is confined is not a vëry sure foal-getter. The very best exercise for a stallion is to work him daily at soma light work. If ev ery stallion received a moderate amount of exercise, the number of foals would increase from 15 to 20 per cent. Keep him in a well lighted stable, and don't have him alone away from the other horses. Another thing some people forget Is grooming. Frequent and thorough grooming is very essential to keep the stallion comfortable and the skin is good, healthy condition. HOGS IN HEALTHY CONDITION Mixture Given for Keeping Animal* Free From Intestinal Worms and Supplying Mineral Matter. (By DR. W. H. DALRTMPLE, Professor of Veterinary Science. Louisiana Statt University.) The following mixture should bo plaqed in every hog lot as It will help to keep the hogs free from intestinal worms and other parasites as well supply mineral matter needed for thf building of bones and other tissues: One bushel of wood ashes. Six bushels of corn cob charcoal. Three bushels of common charcoal Eight pounds of common salt. Two quarts of air-slaked lime. Fifty pounds of raw rock phosphate. After these ingredients are thorough ly mixed and broken up, 1% pounds o< copperas, dissolved In ' water, should be sprayed over the mass and thor oughly mixed with it. Any quantity may be prepared by following the pro portions given. It is fed by being placed in troughs, protected from the rain. as DORMANT PRUNING OF TREES Most Fruit Growers Will Trim Off > Sprouts Whenever Seen Regard less of vho Season. (By N. O. BOOTH. Oklahoma A. and IA Colles«. Stillwater.) Fruit trees, and. in fact, all trees, should be pruned during the winter at the time when the trees are thorough, ly dormant Most fruit , , - growers win trim off sprouts, starting at the foot to a tree or the trunk whenever the sprouts are seen, regardless to the sea son. Where branches of any sise ara to be removed the work should be done during the winter. in case the trees ern tender, such as peach or apricot trees, the should be done In the latter pruning part* of tbe winter, after ail danger of freezing is over.

COBB (Copyright. IRE. by W. O. Chapman.) James Rose was "a fray-haired old reprobate!" He did not believe it himself, but his wife had called him so that very morning. She was forcible, often convincing, and he rubbed his head dubiously as he wondered if. after all. she might not be right. "I haven't amounted to much, that's a fact." ruminated Rose, "but 'repro bate!' She don't mean that. She's in one of her tantrums aud-says anything, that comes to her mind when she's cross." Cranky, diabolical would have best suited the case, for Mrs. Rose was possessed of a veritable demon that especial morning. She almost recog nized the fact herself, but felt that she had due provocation for being irritated and snappy. Rose had let a loose pack age of tobacco fall all over a rug just swept clean. He had stumbled on leaving the kitchen and had tipped a platter to fragments. "Done on pur pose!" she had declared, and then she had "let loose at him" in her charac teristic way. Mr. Rose started for town to get the mail, trying to devise some plan whereby he could get Mahala down to a fairly rational average as to temper and outbreaks. When he got to the post office, besides the weekly newspa per, there was a letter. He studied the superscription and postmark. "From Henry—well!" he solilo quized, and wondered that it was ad dressed to himself. Mrs. Rose con sidered it a gross infringement on her privileges for any of her family to di rect their missives to anybody but herself. Mr. Rose wondered no longer as he opened the letter. It informed that Henry, who had been absent from home for nearly two years in the city, had taken a wife to himself. By rare good luck the firm «MC« u Mill )l yi t "Wm!" Commented Rose Thoughtful lyr-'H'm!" he worked for had decided to have him establish a branch of their busi ness at Dunham. His plan was to come on within a week. He and his wife would like to spend a month or two at the old home, while they looked around for permanent quarters for themselves. Why Henry wrote to his father was that, in addition to the letter, he in closed a written slip for his own read ing only. It ran: "You know how queer mother is. She never liked it when Nell got mar ried. My wife is a lovable timid little thing, and if mother should 'begin on ber,' I believe it would break her dear little heart. Sort of feel around and' see If mother is likely to get offish. If so. we will change our plans." "H'm! commented Rose thought fuUy—"H'm!" He did not go directly home. In stead, he meandered on till he came to a secluded pasture lot, where he sat down on a tree stump to meditate. Yes, Henry had it rtghL His moth er's habitual prejudices and whims were well worth considering at the outset of a wedded career. AU Rose had to think about to substantiate this fact was the marriage of their daugh ter, Nell, five years before. She and her husband had remained at the old homestead for a month, ter period for Nell's husband. Mrs. Rose made it a point to instruct the new husband "in the way he should When he took her injunctions pleasantly, she fancied h'e was derid ing her. When he got serious, she imagined he was pugnacious, and tried to egg him on to an open quarreL The result was that, after Nell and he had got settled in their own home, he rarely went to visit the old folks, and the relations of the two families bad been quite strained ever since. Mrs. Rose bad made "this outland ish treatment" a hone of contention 8 he had caught her husband aneaking some bouquets to Nell and her hus band.

You stop Henry from coming here and I'll go after him and his dhkr little wife, and fetch them!" "Dear little fiddlesticks!" growled Rose. "Oh, go ahead. Be Imposed on —but scant treatment they*ll_get from me. I tell you!" and he strode away, an apparent volcano of wrath. "She's got to go by contraries, sure as I live!" he chuckled gleesomely, once outside of the house, and alone. "Now to keep it up!" Rose did keep It up. He was glum and disagreeable all that week. When Henry and his wife arrived he was positively savage. He barely spoke to the pretty little cre a t u re he would like to have taken Into his arms In a warm fatherly hug. When she got him alone, his wife berated him to no avail. He refused to talk, while she empha sized her opinion of "the soulless old villain" who "was driving his kin from heart and home!" Rose maintained his role nobly. One day he nearly chuckled outright, when he entered the sitting room to find nis wife holding his son's weeping wife to her bosom, consoling her "poor dear lamb," who was heartbroken at "the cruel treatment of father!'' "It works—I've hit It!" gloated the "gray-headed old reprobate," and so he had. Mahala began to act meek. One day as he was leaving the house she came to him with à great bouquet of her choicest flowers, "Take them to Nell," she spoke weakly, "and ask them to come and spend the day with us—please!" One day later Henry and the old mah danced a hilarious jig behind the barn. A changed woman, Mrs. Rose had at last gathered a loving flock un der the home roof. Old sores were healed, old enmities forgotten and the new Mahala put up a new motto over the parlor mantel, reading: "It's love that makes the world go round!"

This is* the club car on the Pennsylvania which is attached to the train that carries bankers and brokers to their summer homes along the Jersey coast. The club car is fitted with low easy chairs, with small tables and other comforts 'of home. Woman has long known of the comforts, the idleness, the restfulness of selfish man in this car, but never has the swish of a skirt been within earshot. Yesterday when, two smart ly dressed young women swung aboard and sat down fn two of the easiest chairs the invasion struck the car occupants like a blow. They had expected to see the women turn In dismay and flee through the smoke filled atmosphere. Not they. They settled themselves comfortably and began to chat jost as if there wasn't a man within a mile. But the wonder was yet to come. It came after the train started. One of the young wom en produced a gold cigarette case. "Won't you have one, dear?" Yes, dear would have one and a match, too. The tired business man watched and watched and the women puffed and puffed and chatted. It was a com plete invasion. No longer was the club car the sanctum sanctorum of the male.

Tenth Trip in Search of Mine. since Slumagh, the Indian after whom it is named, was hanged in tbe jail yard at New Westminster in 1891. Walter Jackson, the second dis coverer, panned out thousands of dol lars' worth of gold in a few days when he located it in 1901. Burying the main part of his treasure, he came out with dust and nuggets to the value of |8,000, intending to re turn and stake claims at his leisure. But he fell sick and, being about to die, bethought him of Andrew Hall, who had grubstaked him at Guytos many years before. He wrote to Hall and drew a chart. Hall finding him self in need of money in the Yukon sold the letter and chart to a cousin of Armstrong, to whom the documents finally came. Jackson's description of his find, which is in a creek in a canyon to which there is no outlet except by an underground channel, says in part: "In going upstream I found a place where the bedrock was bare, and you will hardly believe me when I tell you the bedrock was yellow with gold. In a few days I gathered thousands, and there was thousands more in sight. Some of the nuggets were as big as walnuts. ... I saw there were millions practically on the surface. I buried part of the gold under a tent shaped rock with a mark cut on tbe face." DREAMER CUTS OFF CURLS Missing Locks Are Found in Suit Cas« Girl Dreamed She Was Packing.

A map is useful in teaching this lesson. The events occ ur red daring the revolution which resulted in the extermination of Jezebel and her brood. Dothan, n small walled town, wns about ten miles north and slight ly east of Samaria, the capital of Israel, and in history is connected with Joseph (Gen. 37). Damascus was the capital of Syria. I. Danger, w. 8-13. Jehoram. king of Israel, cleaved to the sins of Jero boam and of Ahab, his father. In Judah. Jehoram, the son of Jehoeha Phat, married Athaliah, the daughter of Ahab and Jezebel. General Jehu, famous for his driving, was soon to become king of Israel. The king of Assyria, being otherwise engaged, al lowed Syria, the constant enemy of Israel, to make a fresh attack unhin dered (v. 8 ). Elisha, the patriot, the "man of God," proves to be Israel's real safety. Elisha has not left us great revelations like Isaiah and other prophets, but he knew from day to day God's will, and he has power with him so that he could warn his people of impending danger. He had what the king and the people both lacked, a vision of God. He saw the needs and dangers, but also the re sources at his command. Thus he de livered Isreal many times (v. 10). We, too, are thus frequently delivered, let uà praise God. The nnderying reason for Israel's danger was its neglect of the word of God, and the same can be said as explaining the defeat of the Syrians. True patriotism combines vision and warning. The king of Syria, like countless other despots, knew not friend from foe, but evident ly he had one retainer who told him the truth (v. 12). Some have sug gested that this was Naaman; per haps It was a captive Israelite. In either case it suggests God's knowl edge of us. (See Ps. 139:1-10.) II. Defense, w. 14-18. It was not a mere guerrilla detachment sent to Do than to capture Elisha before igalring the main attack upon Samaria, but a well-officered army. Elisha meant more to them than did the king of Israel. The servant of Elisha had risen early and saw only the hills surrounding Dothan, upon which was "a host with horses and chariots round about the city" (v. 15), and In consternation he exclaims: "Alas, my master, how shall we do?" Again we are impressed with the vision of Elisha and the lack of it on the serv ant's part. Elisha saw what the serv ant could not see; walking by faith he was not affrighted (John 14:1; Phil. 4; 6 , 7; Isa. 12:2; Ps. 56:3). In re sponse to Elisha's prayer the servant's eyes were opened, yet he was not one whit more safe than before (v. 17). It is a striking contrast here with the Elisha of chapter 2:10. It is a sug gestion of the Christian anointed by the Holy Spirit and that of the saved sinner before that experience. Our eyes need to be opened to see that "they that be with us are more than they that be with them'* (v. 16). We need to see God's love, power and wis dom in nature, providence and grace. There is nothing Incredible scientific in this experience. It Is a rational and a glorious belief that Providence is working in our behalf through the unseen power of the Holy Spirit, the power of prayer and the answers thereto. The unseen is glo riously real. III. Deliverance, w. 19-23. In the first section we are taught the danger of a lack of vision. In the second sec tion the emphasis is upon the need of a vision, whereas in this there is presented the use of a vision. To crystallize vision Into experience is a difficult task for us all. Elisha prayed Jehovah, for whom he was acting, to smite the 3yrians with blindness. This was not for vengeance, but (a) to teach the Syrians who the true God is (b), to lead Jehoram, the king, to go to Jehovah for help, and (c) to de liver the people from the raids of the Syrians. This word "blindness" (v. 18) conveys the idea of daszllng, visual bewilderment, hallucination and not of total loss of sight, thus making It easy for Elisha to lead them as he willed (v. 19). Mentally bewildered as a result ot their physical ailment they failed to recognize the prophet. He did not deceive them, for they at last "found him" when he led them Into Samaria and once more they could see. Within the walls of Samaria Elisha's prayer is again answered, their sight restored (v. 20 ) and they find themselves at the mercy of Is rael's king. The older and wiser man Elisha, forbids the younger, the king , to use his advantage (w, 21 22 ), bat rather to heap coals of fire upon their heads by setting before them food (Rom. 12: 20, 21); within his power, such acts could not be attributed ttf fear. "Great provision" was mads and after their departure we read, "■o' the bands of Syria came no more into the land of Israel" (v. S3), taught the Syrians the lesson of the power of Jehovah, and the dangerous position of those who refuse to see In him what he really is.
