Give Hena More Light and Get More Egg. Say Dr. B. F. Kaopp. (From Raleigh Neva and Observer.) -Lay egg while the light shines," la the slogan apparently adopted by k pea of thirty Rhode Island heni at the State College poultry plant, according to Dr. B. F. Kaupp who haa just completed am experiment with artificial light extending over a period of one year. Tow flocki of thirty hena aeh were given the same amount of feedstuit and identical care and attention. One pen wai lighted with a UO-watt elec tric light from sundown until about 9:30 p. m., or long enough to slve tht hens fifteen hours of light In which to work. The other pen was not lighted, the hens being kept un der natural conditions. The flock given fifteen hours of light, day and artificial laid 147 eggs per hen. The other flock averaged 104'cgKS. The greatest gain occur red Ailing November, December, January,' and February, the season when eggs are scarce and high. Dur ing this period sixty per cent ot the flock under light laid regularly, whiie only ten per cent of the flock under natural conditions procured. While the results of Dr. Kaupp's experiments will be hailed with joy by poultry raisers and millions of consumers may rise up to call hlui blessed, the JokesmltTjs will no doubt 'learn about the explosion of their most ancient Joke with considerable dismay. Since the day Adam lUe the apple, a favorite yarn on the minstrel stage has been about the farmer, who fool ed his hens Into laying twice a day by keeping a light burning in his hen house at night.

Flnrses that have been properly handled and trained are not balky, neither do they have bad habits. When horses with bad habits are en countered a careful study of each case should be made in order to ascertain the cause, and, If possible, to re move It. The most common cause of bnlk lness among horses Is punishment to make them do something that they cannot do or that they do not under stand bow to do. Another common cause Is the forcing of horses to draw heavy loads without allowing them to stop ocms'onally to rest and rejnln their breath. The use of the whip or spur lu such Instances should be avoided, as the p.flrt inflicted will be very likely to provoke further and more stubborn rebellion. If a horse balks the bearing of the harness should be examined to see if It is hurting him. If a heavy load Is be ing drawn nnd the horse Is not al lowed to rest nnd reguUt his breath and strength he may become sulky and refuse to pull. Give him a short rest, and while he Is resting rub his nose, pick up a front foot and tap the' hoof a few times, or adjust the hnr- ness, and he may forget his grievance. TuSe the lines nnd give the commnnd to go abend, -turning sllplit'.y to the right or left to start. If the horse does not start It Is either a case of overlond or a chronic bnlker. If the load Is so heavy It cannot he drawn, u ii loud. If the horse Is a chronic bulker a course of training will be necessary to overcome the habit. In older horges where the habit of balking Is fixed the horse should be trained to obey all commands with promptness without being hitched to the wagon. First put on the double trip ropes and use them until the borse stops and stands when he hears "whoa." Next put on the guy line, which should be managed by an as sistant, while you drive and attend the trip ropes. The guy line Is a rope fastened around the horse's neck and a half liltch over the lower Jaw. It Is very severe and should not be used to excess. If the horse shows any tendency to balk, give the command "whoa" before Re stops of his own accord. When ready to start, the as sistant should take a position In front of the horse and smartly Jerk him for- Modern Exampls of Good Breeding One of Stallions Bred by the De partment of Agriculture at Buffalo, Wyo. f wnrd with the guy line nt the same time you give the command "get up." Repent the process of stopping nnd starting until the ors shows no signs of self-will. Use the guy line. nnd use It severely, on the slightest Intlmntlon that the horse Is going to balk. After a few of these lessons the horse may be hitched to tho wagon. The trip ropes and guy line should be kept on until he Is well broken of the habit. A horse that kicks when something touches his heels Is dnncerous to drive. To overcome tho habit, put on the harness and the trip ropes. Take a stick and pole him all over. After he becomes submissive to the pole, tie sacks of hny to the traces nnd breeching, and continue the lesson un til he pnys no attention to them. Fasten a long pole on either side with one end to drag on the ground, the other end to be fastened tothe slmft carrier. Drive him around with fhese, nnd If he attempts to kick com mand "steady" and pull him to his knees. The lessons should be contin ued nntll he submits to the polos drag ging between his legs and round him. SILAGE FOR PRODUCING BEEF Mlcoourl College of Agriculture Out lines Satisfactory Plan With Young 8teera. Highly satisfactory beef can be made from two-year-old steers by feeding corn as allago, "together with linseed menl and clover or alfalfa hay, tnstrnd of full feeding shelled or er.r corn, according to the Missouri Col lege of Agriculture. woe livir, jitriuuiH w uiuMitrm vi corn, or eight tons of sllnge, If fed as sjlnge, together with 1.73.1 pounds of Unseed oil moat and 1,810 pounds of alfalfa hny wontd produce "."fl.S pounda of beef and 11.3 pounds ot pork. If, however, the corn be fed as shelled corn (full feed) and sllnge, to gether with 308.2 pounds of Unseed meal ird 845.2 pounds of alfalfa hay, It would produce 291.0 pounds of beef tod 63.5 pounds of pork. mm m w M THE UNIVERSAL CAR The Ford Sedan An all-weather car this pretty thoroughly describes the Ford Sedan.
