Tho first two weeks feed (bo en If
three times dally, giving eight to ten
pounds of milk per day tho Ilrst week
and (en to twelve pounds pur dny the
Hccoud week. Tho third week whole
milk may bo substituted by sklmmllk
n nil a grain supplement, so by the cud
of tile fourth week It has beeit entire
ly eliminated The amount of hkliu
milk may gradually be Increased to
nlxtcen or eighteen pounds dally
Ornln Is best fed dry, beginning with
11 handful after feeding milk When
the calf Is u month old and being fed
entirely on sklmmllk, liny and grain,
the amount of grain may be one-hnlf
pound dully, at the end of two mondis
line pound dally and at (ho end of
thrco months two pounds dully, and no
further Increase Is necessary for nix
months. A good mixture Is three parts
(by weight) of cornmeal, three parts
ground oats, three parts wheat bran
and one part Unseed oil men I.
Substitute For Skimmilk.
If the skltnmllk Is limited various
mibstitute.s may bo used after the calf
Is thirty days old. The Cornell station
found dried sklmtnllk powder gave the
best results, and Schumacher's calf
meal and nintchford's calf meal gave
good results, strong calves having been
raised by their use without milk.
In raising calves Indigestion or
scours are often troublesome and are
traced to one or more of the following
muses: Too much milk, cold milk, sour
milk, unclean palls or unclean sur
roundings. Tho best remedy Is to re
move tho cause. When a severe ease
appears reduce the feed at once and
give three ounces of castor oil In a
pint of milk, to be followed In four to
nil hours by a teaspoonful of a mix
ture of one part snlol and two p.irts
nubnltroto of bismuth three times daily
until tho calf Improves.

There are several types of colony
houses, but nil should have tho follow
lug features: Perfectly dry, freedom
from drafts, well ventilated, easy to
rliMiii and move (this latter should be
done eery season), mid, lastly, they
should be attraetlxe, but Inexpensive
Don't crowd the chicks In tho colony

do not allow tho ehleks to roost until
their bones have hardened up consider

Kor small (locks suitable colony
houses may be made from large store
boxes by covering the lop and tlnee

can be thrown open during (he day

and two Hides In one piece. It has also
the added virtue of being cheap, but Is

Most colony houses average about
0 by 8 feet In sire, with shed roof and
a largo wlro covered window with cur

built on skids, so that they can be
easily drugged to new ground with the
aid of n horse, and, If tightly built,

"I want to tell you what wonderful benefit I have re- J
ceived lrom the use of Thcdford's Black-Draught," writes
Mrs. Sylvanla Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky.
"It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds, J
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 1 shall never be without

ncss, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar j
ailments, Thcdford's Black-Draught has proved itself a safe, Sj
reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.

Draught. It is a medicine of known merit. Seventy-five
