Secures Agency for Hayes’
Announcement is made that
W. A. Carter & Son, of Ozark,
have succeeded in “landing” the
local agency for Hays’ Specific,
the great system tonic, which is
so genuinely beneficial as a
remedy for rheumatism that J.
T. Jones, of Crossland, Kentucky
“To any one suffering from
Sciatica I will say, I was afflicted
with it for about three months.
I tried half a dozen remedies and
got no relief. My family physi
cian could not benefit me and
said I might not be able to walk
in twelve months. I could not
sit down to eat, nor walk. I
took one bottle of Hays Specific
and went to plowing. 1 have
never been bothered with it
since. No one can estimate its
value for chronic sciatica. My
neighbors said it would return,
but it has been two years and 1
have no symptoms of it.”
Hays’ Specific, the great sys
tem tonic, is sold and fully guar
anteed by W. A. Carter & Son.

The “stem” or drill bar broke

mended. It is reported that
this well is 1000 feet deep. The
well on the J. K. Ford farm has

a few days on account of a sim

are sure the “plug” didn’t fail
to “spark”. They got to see a
real “Thorne” in the flesh too,

name is Thorne and he is report
ed to be wealthy. We would
warn him that this is leap year

to put the question up to him.

No. 6. Growing Horoea and Mules.
By H. ▲. Sandhouse, Assistant Profes
sor of Animal Husbandry, Uni
versity of Arkansas.
The breeding of horses and mules Is
generally considered as a side Issue In
general farm practice, more so than
in breeding any other class of stook.
The majority of farmers raise only a
few colts each year, the number de
pending somewhat on the number of
animals used and the nature of the
work required of the mares at foaling
time. Even though we are living In
what might be termed the motor age,
there is still a great demand for good
farm and heavy draft horses, which
should be an Incentive for the farmer
to breed more and better horses. The
mule Is especially adapted to South
ern conditions, having a greater re
sistance to heat, and they are hardier,
more docile and sure-footed than the

and still have suAelent capacity toe
the foetus as shown by a large, dee*
ribbed body. Since west of tho maros
are grades, the relative lnflueaee si
sh-s and dam Is apparently in hrw

The grade eire map peeslbiy have
a good appearance, but, coming from
mined breeding of unknown anoeetry,
it Is hard to determine what his eoUs

The eharaoterlstles of the mule
mare should be emphasised, since the
mule inherits muoh of Its form from
the mare. She should have alsa,
weight aud good conformation. Be
causs of the generally recognised
comparatively ooarse qualities of the
Jack., mule mares should havs refine
ment and quality. Heavy draft mares
are not as desirable as those which
have some hot blood from the lighter
breeds, such as standard bred or thor
oughbred. Too much refinement will
produce undersized mules, which are
not as salable for remunerative prices.
The body of the Jack has a tendency
to angularity, and therefore ho should
be mated to mares of a square, smooth
form to overcome this tendency.
in order to raise colts, the average
farmer must either breed his working
mares or work his brood mares. The
question which confronts the farmer
is how to secure natural conditions for
his mares while at work. The mare
at work Is Just as well off for fresh
air, sunshine and exercise as the mare
in the pasture, but the labor requires
more energy and tissue-building mate

Furthermore, she la subject to fatigue
and mechanical injurlea, such aa jerk*
Ing, slipping, extreme apead and rough
treatment. The best way la to grad
ually decrease the work so that dar
ing the last turn weeks of pregnancy
the mare will be doing the lightest
work. The majority of the foals are
foaled In the spring, which is the
natural time. However, if marea are
expected to do the season's heavy
work in addition to raising a ooM,
the fall will he a better time.
A few days before foaling the grain
ration should be decreased and bran
or linseed meal aheuld be fed to act
as a laxative and keep the bowels
loose at this time After foaling, the
first feed may be bran, and this may
be followed with oats or equal parts
by bulk of cora and bran, feeding a
light feed for the first tea days.
There are two active oauaas of
death In young foals Oae Is duo to
Impaction In the bewsls because of
failure te receive sufficient colostnun,
or first milk, and If this be the cane,
the oolt should he given a tableapoeo

Injection The other oanse Is due te
navel Infection before the aavel heals
over Give plenty of clean, dry bed
ding and dip the stump of the naval
cord In saturated solution of boric
acid, which will prevent infection.
The feeding of the colt should be
gin as early as possible, as the foal
makes more than half of Its entire
growth during the first year. For
bone and muscle forming feeds, blue
grass pasture and oats has no supe
rior. Corn, barley, kafir, etc., may be
fed If properly balanced with legume
hays, w'htch have lime for bone
While the mare is at work the foal
should be locked up in a good box
stall or yard, where it cannot hurt It
self While the foal is real young, the
mare should be brought in In the
middle of the forenoon and afternoon
to allow the foal to suck. If the mare
Is warm and fretting, milk out a part
of the milk, us it wfill injure the foal,
especially If the mare is not brought
in until noon.
