LABOR SAVING DEVICES Making the Farm Work Interesting:. GEORGE H. DACY. I Know a progressive orcliardlst who developed a t pry good dlrwt fruit trade In n region w licro formerly all tlio fruit that was inii'lms(!(l came from Cnlifor "la, ntiil lie did this entirely by the ut of lih automobile, lie removed the tonncau and ued n body fitted with rooks for the baskets UN loail ronds wero very Rood, and he was able to pick the fruit when the dew of early morning was on It and to delivc It to JiIh consumers in three iiclgliliorlng towns In a radlim of fifteen miles by tiildmurnliig Leading dairy farms that formerly wasted horso and man labor In convoy ing their dairy products to the rallro.id re today profitably operating motor trucks The motor has vitally Increas ed the efficiency of man, and with the machine malntnlued under good roiidl tlons Its operator can porfoun as uiu'li work as throe ordinary teams mid drivers formerly did. The automobile's "colt," the moforcyile. should partlm larly recommend Itself to the ngricul tural public, for on every farm the most modem machinery ulways finds flattering appreciation mid ready ap plication Power Machinery Interests the Boy. I have frequently talked with many farmers' sons who nsirllic their keen intetest In the old homu.slo.id to the fHCt tint power machinery, Including tho automobile, motor truck, motor cycle, gasoline engine and farm light lng or watering system, has boon placed In their chaige. Partners the country our who utilize the luitoiuo bllo for both plensuro and bushiest purposes are of the staple, eonsurm live type. A Wisconsin faun boy lines a nick nttaclied to the tear frame of bis mo torcycle, in which he is able to carry two milk cans and soveml bug of feed or seed.

J. W. KELLER. It's a puzzling question to many what to feed and how to feed after the critical perlod-the first month of a chick's Ilfo-U safely passed Tho foundation is luhL- What will we build on 111 Parent stock, housing, range, ssnltary arrangements these and a host of other conditions e li piny their oun luiHrtatit plirt in the answer, but the keystone of all Is prop or feeding. The mash plnjs tho lending role In most present tiny feeding, nnd lightly mi, for we can ecnio In this form feed that Is most accurately ImMnced and easily digested, offering a gt eater rn rlefy, greater economy, quicker results and the highest percentage of dlgestl bllltj.

The above will be found n valuable masl tor use during the second, third and fourth months of a chick's life, representing hs it does tho feeding sys teni of one of inei Ic.i'.s mot success ful plants, and bhould be fed at least tw Ice a day. When to Feed the Grain, Por n scratch grain we must revort first to the three great Maple grains of file poultrynuin-oorn.whont and outs and these should he mixed In equnl quantities (by weight) for chicks hav ing free range. Por those which are confined, however, a small amount of a tariety of other grains, such as mil let. canary ocd, barley, etc, nmy bo added, and tills should be fed about the middle of the morning, scattered on the ground or among the Utter, and ngnJti In the Inter afternoon. These tine grains are chiefly vnlmtulo an in during exercise and affording slow nourishment. It Is almost nniipcessnry to state that a plentiful supply of good, fresh, cool water must be More tuo, chicks nt all times, and In addition If they are not on free rangi' greens and grit must be nrovlded The above system of feeding, pro vlded other conditions are fairly nor ma I. will grow rldcks-whlch will have tho health, vitality and capadtj that will lm-Hii nuuh future protlt. LITTLE SPRING PIGS Profitable and Easy to Grow. sow with several little pigs can be tnnvoulently and profitably maintained by the average suburban householder The sow and her brood cannot only be kept by the surplus waste from the kitchen, but tho pigs In November or December will nrows a eooi oiiro of supply for fresh meat; then, too, some of the pigs may be sold at a profit. The feeding nnd csro of the pigs Is ns Important as the breeding u pro luclng a good hog. Plenty of feed and good care may make a good hog out of a runt, but tho lack of It will always make a runt out or giMl pig Young pigs must lime a dry lied hikI plenty of sunshine. Meg In feeding them as boon as they will eat and keep tliem well fed until they are ma ture. Always keep plenty of lean, flesh water where tho pigs may drink at any time. The more milk a miw will give the faster her pigs will grow. Hog lots should bo built whore the sun will shine In some portion of them at all hours of the day Stinshlno is ono of the greatest factors for de stroying germs and keeping down dls eases. A supply of clean, frosh wu tor at all tlnios Is essential. The trough should always be kept clean and not so much feed glwn at one time that It would be loft In the trough to become sour and filthy The troughs should be frequently washed and placed whero the sun will Millie In them. This is especially true of those used for feeding small pigs Clean, dry straw should be placed In eery houo for bedding, as It Is essential that tho sow have n warm, dry bd when sho farrows. Many young pigs are lost ench year from cold and ex posure at farrowing time. The young pigs must be kept wnrm. dry and should have plenty of sunshine until they are several weeks old. The Proper Shelter. A good shelter for little pics during the summer mouths may bo made by setting four iwlcs Info the ground and securoly nailing 2 by 0 Inch material around these about three feet from the ground, and upon these a few light poles may be put crosswise ami straw or coarse liny plied on top. If the pigs show Indications of scour ing keep n mixture of charcoal (one bushel), hardwood ashes (Vino bushel), salt Mght ponnds), air staked lime (eight iMiutids). sulphur (four pounds) ond pulverirod copperas two pounds) where ihe hogs con eat It nt will. This Is not only a good remedy for scours, but is ono of (lie best preventives for worms It Is also well to remember that pork U more In demand tli.m either beef or mutton, and the danger of overstocking Mie lo'irixi is i emote.
