W know of no safer proposition for
the average farmer than to equip his

Saddle and carriage horses may also
be most profitably produced.
I the building of culverts and bridges
and the digging of ditches reference
must always be had to the maximum
amount of water which they may be
called upon to handle. I is the ex
traordinary and not the average rain
fall which wrecks these structures and
determines the water carrying: capac
ity of the ditch. W recall the case
of the man who undertook to drain
and reclaim a small lake bed.
carefully figured out the average rain
fall and tbe area of toe watershed
tributary to the lake and made out that
a ditch of a certain sise wou ld easily
carry off all the water. drained
tbe lake bed and had it all in crops,
when one day along In June came a
cloudburst, a rainfall of ten inches in
side of six hours, winch covered bis
crops with six feet of water, his ditch
not being one-half large enough to
handle such a volume of water, so
when it did finally dispose of the -water
the crops were all ruined.
If young calves are stunted during
the first two months of their lives they
never get over It. W noted a dos en in
a man's pasture the other daybony,
lousy, dwarfed little brutes, which for
our use for any purpose whatever
would not have been worth 75 cents
each. W think they were creame ry
separator calves which were having
abo ut the same sort of chance in life
that poor little Ottver Twist bad at
the English orphan asytam. The sim
ple rule to follow to raise a good calf
where the butter la wanted from tbe
cows is fu& mOk for two weeks, taper
ing off on to sk im mi lk during tbe next
two weeks and a careful fortifying of
tbe skim milk with com meal to replace
the butter fat extracted then an the
corn and oats the can* will eat with its
milk ration. A good a calf can be
raised in mis manner aa though it were
allowed to run with its mother, but it
is a good deal more trouble and de
mands great care in feeding.

The biggest problem in this country
and tbe one which more people are
trying to solve than any other is
how to keep and cere for a fami ly on

Impossible for a man so situated to
ever get ahead financially enough so
that living for bim win be an easier
problem to solve. Hundreds of thou
sands of men of this class gave up
trying to better their condition long
ago. They accept tbe limitations of
their lot. I Is little less than a crime
for a man so situated to burden him
self with a large family, and he should
never have more than two children,
but we too often find him with six
or more. A pathetic feature connect
with this class Is that If they ever
do get into debt tt Is almost impossible
for them to get out, with the result
that when then* credit is gone their
ambition goes with It. There la only
Just one ray of hope and light for this
class, and that Bee In connecting their
living and their work with a small
piece of land. A acre well tilted win
do wonders in helping to support tbe
family, and if a cow, a pig and some
chickens an be associated with the

8t. PaaLNumerous changes were
made by the state board of grain ap
peals at its aaanal joint meeting ^1
The first discriminates against
scoured or manipulated wheat, and is
oe which win be a great beniat. The
new role reader "Wheat scoura ed or
otherwise manipulated will not be con
sidered in grading saose.
Another important change is that
relating to the pooring of grain into
test kettles. I has been found that
grain poured iato the mddle of the
kettle is heavier then when poured
against the sides. The new role there
fore is: "Manner of testing- wbeat,
flax, barl ey and rye shall be tested af
ter it is cleaned. The test kettle shall
be placed where it cannot be Jarred or
shaken. From scoop, bag or pan
hold two inches from top of kettle,
pour into midd le ot same at moderate
speed until running over, striking off
in a zigzag manner with the edge of
beam held horizontal.
Another important rule has been
made concerning rye, providing that
hereafter rye most be tested after it
has been cleaned, instead of before
cleaning. This will give the farmer a
better showing to weight.
