SELF-FEEDER FOR HOGS
IS ALSO A LAISOK SAVER
There are several points in favor of
the self-feeder for hops over the aver
age method of hand feodinp, but the
principal advantage is in the saving
of labor, according to experiments
which have been conducted by the Ar
kansas Experiment Station. The sav
ing in labor with t lie self-feeder
amounted to 1*7 rents a hundredweight.
With the self-feeder the swine bnl
auec their own ration out of tlie ma
terials furnished them and thus get
got the met adapted to their omnivor
ous appetite. Loss feed is required
usually to make 1(M> pounds of gnin
when the self-feeder is used.
Larger daily gnus are made with
the self-feeder unless careful hand
feeding methods are followed. The
self-feeder is a good substitute for the
inexperienced feeder and saves much
labor on the farm.
Information on the use of tin* self
ffsnler can be furnished by t lie county
agricultural agents and the Extension
Service will l»e glad to furnish plans
for the construction of inexpensive
self-feeders free to those who intend i
budding tliis type of feeder.

RIGS AND COVERLETS MADE
BY SOUTHERN FARM WOMEN
The beautiful old art of making •‘pul
led’’ or “hooked” rugs Is being revived
in Arkansas and Mississippi by rural
women who are anxious to increase
the family income. The industry is
one which lias started among the farm
women and girls themselves, and
wherever possible it is being spread
and encouraged by extension agents
A representative of the United States
Department of Agriculture on a field
trip recently saw one woman near i
L’ttle ltock who sold many of her i
small pulled rugs from her own do :
signs of flowers and forest leaves for |
as much as $12.00 each. Several other j
women were doing similar work under j
her instruction, and all seemed to
be succeeding in making extra money
by this work
In another part of the State an old
loom, brought over from England lob
years ago, was seen. The woman who
owned it not only used it to weave :
rugs, but also made beautiful woven i
wool coverlets of unusual designs, j
showing not a rttle ingenuity in mak
ing tip new patterns. She. too was
teaching others in her community to '
make rugs and coverlets.
In addition to pulled and woven
rugs, many of the popular rag rugs |
are made, including the braided and j
crocheted types. “Crazy quilts” and
counterpane-* of applique work are also
being revived in addition to the beau
t ful woven wool counterpanes

"The Heritage of the
DesertEtc.
One of the most stirring
and at the same time con'
vincing and pleasing
novels of the West is
“Desert Gold.” It is
founded mainly on a re'
cent border uprising, and
in its descriptions of bat'
ties with Mexicans, the
operations of raiders, of
prospectors and others
braving the perils of the
desert, proves that pop
tions oi the West can
still yield adventures as
exciting as anything that
happened in the old days;
that there still is a land of
gold, the development of
which is attended by dan'
gers and hardships sutti'
cient to tax the courage of
the most venturesome
mortals. Along with the
intense, dramatic action
is a strong play oi human
hearts in which love and
loyalty are ranged against
ambition, hatred,revenge.

W. 6. WALLER
defenders <>f the Fordney-McCumber
profiteers' tariff. To beguile the farm
er. they declare that the new law will
increase the price of his grain and wool
and livestock. But to comfort the other
consumers who have heard of the rise
in the prices of various commodities,
they contend that the measure has ac
tually lowered tariff duties.
Thus ttie organ of the American Pro
tective Tariff League says:
"Clothiers in different parts of the
country are threatening to put up the
juice of clothes because of the alleged
increase in the tariff duty on scoured
wool. As a matter of fact there is a
decieuse in the duty on scoured wool.”
But the American Woolen Company
known as the Wool Trust—has ad
vanced the prices of its products,
woolen fabrics, from to to 4;1 rents a
yard. The expiaitat on of this increase
is the new tariff on wool. The Ameri
can Woolen Company, through its lob
byists and other influences, practically
die a ted the rate of duty on wool, and
is generally regarded as having a
pretty good idea of vvliat the new law
gives its products in the form of "pro
teetion."
Whether the tariff on wool has been
decreased os the Republican npologists
say, or whether it has been increased,
as the woolen manufacturers contend
in giving notice of ndranees in their
prices, the fact remains thaf the cost
of clothing is rising and will go still
higher with the coming of cold weath
er. If the Republicans are correct in
their statement that the tariff has
been lowered, it would appear that
they deceived the agricultural produc
ers when the Fordney-McCumber bill
wa - written. If the woolen manufact
urers are right in their claim that the
tariff on wool has been raised, then
tl:o Republicans are now trying to mis
lead both the producers and consumers
(if wool.
* mo fnot becomes clear in this con
trn diet ion of stutemcnts. That is that
*ho wool grower cannot get more
money for their dip hr the simple de
vice of sending out a notice of an ad
vance in prices as the Woolen Trust
has succeeded in doing. Neither can
the consumer escape paying more for
clothing which the Wool Trust manu
factures and sells on the basis of tariff
increases of from no to 2”>0 per cent.
The price tags on women’s garments
and men’s suits and overcoats within
the next two months will be more
truthful and more eloquent about the
new tariff rates on wool than any prop
aganda the Republicans are dissemi
nating.
This business of attempting to hood
wink the producers and the consum
ers at one aud the same time and as to
the same article—especially when the
one who produces also consumes—lias
got the Republicans into a had mess.
They are now endeavoring to get out
of it by calling merchants ugly nunies.
