tiful and seeking legitimate channels. Shingles, Lumber, Cement and other building material is cheaper
now than they have been in several years, and there is no enterprise more worthy than home building.
But start right by using our Portland Cement and Cement Blocks in your foundation. Continue right
by using our Lumber and finish right by using our Acme Wall Plaster. It will not peel or crack, and every
sack of Acme and cement we sell is fully guaranteed.
When you are ready to talk building we'll be waiting for you, because we have just the material

CARING FOR YOUNG PIES
By F. G. King, Experiment Station,
University of Missouri.
With the proper care, there should
be no decrease in the itrowlh anil de-
vi'lopment of the pigs after weaning
lime. The weaning is often a time
when the pigs stop grov.ing for a
week or two. Hut if the right kind
of feed is given to them, and they
are eating well, there need be no de
lay in development. There are two
distinct methods of weaning the pigs
practiced by our correspondents in the
state. One ia to let the pigs run with
the sow until she weans them, or
until they wean themselves. This
nifthod is not so generally practiced,
however, as the other. Of course,
this system makes strong pigs, but
no stronger than if they are weaned
earlier and given the right kind of
feed. And It is much harder on the
tows than if the pig are removed
The other method practiced, and j
l tie one used by sixty-one out of the i
I seventy-two farmers making reply on I
this question, is to remove the sow
j afier the pigs have learned to eat
well. The age of weaning varus from
ix to fourteen weeks with our cor-
wlth an average of nine
weeks. The weight at weaning time
aries from twenty to seventy pounds,
with an average weight of about forty
pounds per pig. When weaning time
arrives, it is the practice to take the
sow from the lot rather lhan to change
j ihe quarters of the pigs. This leaves
ihe pigs in familiar surrounding, and
iirevents them from getting as rest-1
less as they otherwise would. The
sow is turned back into Hie lot for a
j short time every half day for a day
I cr two. so her udder can be milked
j out by the pigs to prevent its spoil
, itig. The length of time between milk
; lngs is gradually increased until the
sow is dr.y. This is most cases re-1
quires but a few days. Some funnels, I
however, prefer to remove the pigs to j
a different lot rather than change the j
tow. At first only the stronger pigs '
are removed, thus leaving the weaker I
i.nes to do the milking and have the !
benefits therefrom for a few days !
longer. The weaning should, under !
nil circumstances, lie thorough
The feed during weaning and a '
short time afterward should be the j
tame as before weaning, and consist i
as largely as possible of soft feed, as
the removal of the milk supply is tak- '
ing away a very soft and tmhitable
food. The amount xif feed w ill need j
io be increased somewhat, and most
of our correspondents increase the
oroportion of corn.
For feeding pigs of this age. noth- j
ing gives better results than skimmed '
milk, especially If fed with '.nine kind j
of grain. A trial of different grains
fed with skimmed milk wjis made al
the Cornell Experiment station. The;
results were very satisfactory, grains
if about one pound per day being
made in all the tests. Corn hn.i! and i
skim milk makes a good ration.
An experiment was conducted at the
Wisconsin station which showed very,
fctrikin.uly the poor results which are
gotten from a straight con: ration
compared with one supplenimied with
other feeds. The gains were increased .
more tlii'.n 250 per cent on a mixed
ration over those obtained on a
straight corn ration. If corn alone is
fed to young pigs, it should certainly
be fed in connection with ood pas
ture, so as to give succulence r.nd pro
tein. Aside from the actual food nutrients
required, the necessity of an abun
dance of exercise and fresh air is
best supplied by a good pasture of
clover, alfalfa, or rape. '. '
It is practically impossible to se-:
cure as good, results with pigs with
out pasture as with it. Numerous 1
trials have been made with fattening :
hogs, proving the high value ot pas- !
;ure for that class of hogs. How j
much more so must be the value of J
pasture to animals that ere young j
and growing and need an abundance i
of exercise! 1
