Bates County Poultry Show.
The Bates County Poultry Associa
tion will hold its first annual show
January 20, 27, 28, 1911. E. C.
Branch, one of the best judges of
poultry in the country, has been se
cured by the association to act as
judge, and his presence insures cor
rect scoring for all entries. If you
have any chickens or other poultry
that you wish scored bring them in
and remember that if they score well
up, you have increased their price'
very much and created a demand for
their eggs at good prices; so look
over your stock and select some for
this show, for your own benefit as
for the credit of Bates county. The,
charge for entries is small, only ten
cents per fowl, and admission to the
show is free. The association is of-'
fering good premiums, so be sure
and get in the list and don't fail to
become a member of the association;
it only costs you a dollar a year. You
can pay to or get information from

We quite often hear farmers say
that cattle will eat shredded corn fod

be true. Cattle will eat almost any
thing if driven to it by hunger, but
making beef and butter fat for the

do not receive proper food and plenty

Many of the best dairymen never
milk their cows entirely dry the first
few times after they come in fresh in
order to prevent milk fever. I have
never seen an explanation of why
this will prevent milk fever, but the
practice is so general among good
dairymen that it is a pretty good rule
Ground can be plowed when it is
dry and hard and the majority seem
to think that this is better for the
crops, but there are very few plow
men who feel sorry when a good rain
has soaked the soil so that one team
can do as much as two did before.
The man who believes foxtail
makes good hay should be a cow for

I am going to keen more vounc
: sows and fewer old ones this year, '
i contrary to the advice given in many
, farm papers I take. For three years
it has been my experience that young
sows did the best. Last year three
old sows not old either in number
of years flunked completely for me,
iand gave scarcely enough milk for
the ordinary sized litters they far
rowed. Hogologists might say it was
the way the sows were fed, but the
young sows were fed in the same
i way and raised their litters in fine
I If every farmer would spend a

more time in putting it where it is
needed, I am satisfied the machinery

', other thing to see that the bearing is

There is still time to cut the weeds

While tile drainage has reclaimed
thousands of acres of marsh lands
and has been of great value in drain

should be remembered that it is waste
of time and money to try to tile drain
any place where a permanent outlet
