a handful after feeding milk When
the calf Is a mouth old and being fed
entirely on sklmmllk, hay and grain,
the amount of grain may be one-half

one pound dally and at tho end of
three mouths two pounds dally, and no

COLONY HOUSES FOR POULTRY WHAT EVERY GARDEN NEEDS
Especially Handy on Leased Land.
J. W. KELLER.

There are several types of colon
houses, but all should have tho follow
lug features: Perfectly dry, freedom
from draft, well ventilated, easy to
t'letin and move (this latter should be
done ecry season), and, lastly, the

Don't crowd the chicks In the colony
house. Ilemember, they will be al
most grown before they are moved
again. Have perches removable, and
do not allow the thh-ks to roost until
their bono have hardened up consider
ably, or they may hae crooked breast
bones, When roosts are given, have
them at least two Inches wide.

The "A" shaped colony house is
quite n favorite, as It combines roof
and two sides In one piece. It has al-o
the added virtue of being cheap, but Is
not so easily cleaned as some of the
.Most colony houses average about
0 by 8 feet In h7., with shed roof and
a large wire covered window with cur

built on skids, o thnt they tun be
easily dragged to new ground with the
aid of a horse, and. If tightly built,
houses of this sort can be used for lay

the addition of nests, hoppers, etc.
A word nbout placing the house.
Choose well drained ground that Is
covered with a heavy, sweet sod. An
old on-hard Is almost Ideal, as the
trees furnish shade during the hot
summer days. Clean away any biusli
piles or thickets which might harbor
vermin, and If the same ground must
be used jear after year lime It, plow
It down oneli fall and sow with somo
suitable crop whl h will afford green
pasture for the growing birds.

Are You a Woman ?
The Woman's Tonic
Saved Girl's Life :
"1 want to tell you what wonderful benefit I have re-
eelved from the use of Thcdford's Black-Draught," writes
Airs, ayixama Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky.
"It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught
saved my little girl's life. When she had the measles,
they went in on her, but one good dose of Thcdford's
Black-Draught made them break out, and she has had no
more trouble. I shall never be without
hi my home." For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi
ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar
ailments, Thcdford's Black-Draught has proved itself a safe,
reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.
If you suffer from any of these complaints, try Black
Draughf. It is a medicine nf known merit. Seventy-five
years of splendid success proves its value. Good for
young and old. For sale everywhere. Price 25 cents.
