Right Time for Culling Indifferent Laying Hens Look for a high death rate among farm poultry. The culling sea,on, when the-4ndlffecent layer and all her sisters should be disposed of to the best advantage, Is st hand. Culling demonstrations are in order from June to anuary. Nine hundred and elghty-slx demon- strations were put on in 75 counties of Minnesota last season. Three thou- sand eight hundred and thlrty-elgM flocks, totaling 313.557 blrd were culled; 100.982 blrd or practically one.third, were discarded as unproaR- Ible. "It Is evident from these figtlrea," says N. E. Chapman. poultry special- Ist with the agricultural exttsiou division of the univerrdty, "that about one.thlrd of the farm flocks should be culled, and this ce!!ing should be- gin as soon as the hens begin to molt. Early molters having small combs and wattles and yellow legs of the Ameri- can and Mediterranean breeds are the ones that should be discarded. Such fowls may be consumed Immediately, canned for future use or put on the market.

They were fed mixed one pal, t whtt shorts and two imrts corn meal by weight mixed to a thin batter wtth sweet or sour milk. No milk or ater was giv- en the birds to drink. Floor space was one square foot per bird In a cool pen. They were fed all they would clean up in 20 minutes twice a day. Gains at current market price for feed cost less than five cents a pound. t the northern tier of states, and in the cooler parts of California, Colorado, Kansas. Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, In- diana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, :N'ew JerSey and Massachusetts. About 500 ranch- era are engaged In the business In this country; in 1922 there were between 12,000 and 15,000 foxes In captivity, representing an investment of about $8,000,000. Quality Is Bi0 Factor. Quality, not quantity, is the factor that counts In breeding silver foxes. The location and plan of the ranch are extremely Important considerations, aa well as selection of stock and feeding and breeding. Foxes do not do well under shiftless management. The ae- eessful rancher is the" one who has the well-being of each individual fox eon- tinuafiy in mind. He must stuay the behavior of his foxes at every oppor- tunity and keep constantly Informed in regard to the best practices in their management. Quietness Is Essential. Foxes should be kept as quiet as ossible, especially during the breed- Good Type of Male Silver Fox. able a well as cheap. Directions for preparing special feeds are given. Great emphasis Is laid on cleanllnes and regularity of feeding. Tables show the amount and kind of food that i best for foxes of different ages. D tails of the management of the foxet under all ordinary conditions are In- tended to rid both the beginner and the experienced rancher, and the ec. tlon on sanltathm, particularly the pre. vertion of diseases and parasites, should receive especial attention.

The spread between the price of apples of good quality and apples of poor quality, butter of good quality and butter of poor quality, seed grain lrg high test and seed grain of low lest. Is always marked. In mest cases It represents much more than the dif- ference in cost of producing a good product and a poor one. In some cases It IF utterly Impossible to sell the poor product, while the good product is cer- tain of sale, no matter what the con- 0 ltlon of the market. As has been remarked, the differ- ;nee in the cost of productio9 be- tween good and poor products Is rela- tively slight. Good products may mean a considerably greater initial outlay. ecial machinery or pure bred live stock. This investment will pay Inter- est for a number of years. Aside from Lbe initial Invest'meat, the principal expense In obtaining good IvrOdueta is Incurred in the matter of ear.

Bordeaux Mixture Will Keep Away Leafhoppers Bordeaux mixture will protect potato plants from leafhoppere. A small amount of the mixture can be made by dissolving one-fourth of a pound of blue vitriol or copper sulphate In about two and a half gallons of water. Then add the milk of lime from a quarter Perennial Peppergrass Diffictt to Eradicate Perennial peppeass belongs  a class of plants which is most dtfiicult to eradicate from the soil. The plant has well-developed root stocks wMch are able to penetrate the soil for 'ev- ral feat In a horizontal direction from the original plant. During the seasm's growth these root stocks ore np food which Is used during the next year to send out new shorts from the Joints of the root stocks and these new shoots develop into new plants. Beore the plant can be killed the root stock must be .removed from the Soil or killed In some other manner. TMs Is a odlffleult proposition. Starvation of 'the root stocks by allowing them to send out new shoots wbtcn are cut off they develop will finally kill them. Dangerous to Let Cows Drink Stagnant Water It IS not advisable, in fact, danger. oua. to allow cows to drink from stag- nant pools regardless of their si=e. Stagnant water soon becomes contam- inated with dangerous germs that are not only likely to cause slckne, s In the herd, but Infect the milk and make It unfit for lmman food.

Very Satisfactory Milk Substitute for Calves ('red by the UnHed Statms Delxtm=t of AgHItrult are.) & very satisfactory milk substitute for feeding calves after the second wek has been devised by the United States Department of Agriculture. The mixture conslst of 50 parts finely gtmnd corn. 15 parts linseed-oil meal, 15 parts finely ground rolled oats, 10 par dried blood flour. 10 parts skim m11k powder, and one-half part salt. It la stirred up with warm water at the rate of 1 pound of meal to 9 pounds of water. The feed Is increased gradually as the whole milk Is decreased, until at the time the calf Is 50 days old tt Is getting only the gruel. At this time 1% to 2 pounds of meal mixed with water will constitute a day's feed. Wiienever there are indications of scours the feed must be reduced. When calves are vigorous, the fol- lowing schedule may be adhered to In chalging from whole milk to the lb. silt|lie : Ilcst week--Whole milk. Ieond week Whole milk. Thlrd week--Three p.rts whole mllk. one part ffruel. Fourth week--Three parts whole mtlk one part gruel. Fifth weekhole milk and iffuel. equ&l parts. Sixth week--Whole milk one part, "uet three part Seventh weekAJl &,teL Grain and roughage should be fed with milk substitutes the same as wlt'h eeparated milk. Milk has to be very high In price to Juatlfy the use of sub- stitutes during the first two weeks Of the calf's Ufa. Right Care of Horse in Harvest Quite Important Horses working in the heat should be fed only a limited amount of hay In the morning and the noon feeds, and should be given a liberal amount ef grain, preferably oats, with from 10 to 20 per cent of bran added. They hould be watered in the morning b- fore being fed and should be allowed we,el again after feeding. At noon, when coming from the field they should be given a limited amount of wate If they are hot, followed by feed, and again be watered before going to the eld. At night they should be give a limited amount when brought from the field, followed by the evening feed, and should then be given all the water they will drink. It Is an excellent practice, alSo, to vratr the hors In the middle of each half day's work. A drink at thin time ts a refreshing to the horse as to the ma and will be repaid by better serv- Ice. Frequent breathing spells should be given In the harvest field to avoid ore-heating and &L'ury to the wind. which may result in permanent mr- soundness. The shoulders should be washed with cool salt water t night to pre- ven shoulder gafis and sore necks. ?he collar should also be carefully cleaned when taken off.--J. S.

Immense Damage Is Done Annually by Ox Warble An estimated damage of over $60,- 00,000 annually Is caused by the ox warble, a cattle pest found in all parts r/ the., United States.
