OLE HhD IT ALL PLANNED OUT Evidently He Had Paid Keen Atten. i tion to the Kindly Admonition of His BoSs. I - Ole Olsen had been working as an [engine wiper, and his boss, a thrifty ! man, had been (:oaching him for prO- ! motion to fireman with such advice as : ! "Now, Ole. don't waste a drop of oli l--that costs money. And don't waste the waste, either--that's getting ex- pensive, to(>." When Ole went up to be questloned on his ellgiblilty for a fireman he was asked : "Supl)se you are on your engine on a single track. You go round a curve and see rushing toward you an ex- press. What would you do?" To whlch Ole replied: "I grab the oil can; I g'rab the waste and I yump."From Everybod)$ Magazine. 8taft of the United 8tata Department of Agriculture Moving Pictt, re Labo. ratory. were presented during farmers' weeks at agricultural colleges; 1 at a nation- al show in St. Paul, and 80 of the meet- tags are classified as miscellaneous. They were held In 43 states, the Dis- trict of Columbia and 1 foreign coun- try. Along with the Improvement In the type of exhibits sent out by the de- partment has come a greatly increased demand for them from many parts of the country. So far it has been Impos- sible to comply with all the reque, ts. The exhibits now used are designed to convey, In a way to persuade accept- ance of recommendations made as a re- sult of department research, lessons concerning crops, products or prac- tices. Distribution is carefully looked after so that different sections will get only such exhibits as will be of great- est interest there. State colleges and various organisa- tlons co-operate with the Department of Agriculture In making exhibits, which has had a beneficial effe in stlmulat clo .er co-operation. (P-reDared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) The use of portable exhibits is one of the very effective means developed In re'ent years to bring the findings of the United States Department of Agri- culture before the people of the coun- try. That this method has become popular is indicated by the estimates made on the number of p)ple reached last year at vqrious types of fairs, shows and meetings. The office of ex- hibits prelmred attractive retrials, scenes and charts for use at 100 places in this country and for the Brazilian International exposition at Rio de Ja- neiro, Brazil. Rough estimates, baaed on the attendance at the various places, indicates that department find- Lugs were communicated to nearly 8.- 000,000 l)ersom In this country. Where Exh|bit Wsrs Made. Of the 101 exhibits made, 3 were at expositions of International scope, 1 at Chicago, 1 at Portland, Ore, and the other in Brazil ; 23 were at state fairs or shows of similar nature; 11 at in- testate fairs; 28 at regional  ; 5 Keep Hog House Cool in Hot Weather of Summer Cool bulDlings for hogs, cattle, She Was an Exception. A preacbcr, at all tbnes forceful in hls language, his religion being of the "shlrt-sh,w/' order, had taken for his text, "Vanity." To point his moral he said : ."Now, if there is a woman In the congregation this morning who didn't look in the mirror before coming to the meeting, I want to see her ; I want ] her to stand Up:" [ A single woman arose and stood |with meekly downcast eyes.

"It certainly is a pry you I didn't/' t Oat Improvement Plan Secures Good Result0000 ' Another farmer reported a feeding test in which he kept well-bred cattle and scrubs in the same yard, all receiv- ing the same ration. The good cattle [fattened while the scrubs remained poor. Scores of similar experiences indi- cate that well-bred live stock is an Im- portant means In reducing feeding costs and increasing financial returns. It is of interest to note, however, that, no matter how strong the consen- sus of opinion may be, there are gen- erally a few on the negative side. Of nearly 500 experiences, five or about i per cent, for one reason or another, had failed to succeed with improved stock. This fact, taken into conshteration with the foregoing data, points to a 99 per cent probability that pure bred and other improved live stock will aid greatly in solving economic feeding problems. Details of the department's recent study of feeding questions may be obtained from the bureau of animal industry, United States Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C. Proteins and Minerals Necessary in Hog Feed Considering the. whole problem of economical, sucoessfu! and satisfactory i'pork production with a minimum chance of loss from disease when one studies the problem a little. It is easy ' to see that the things necessary are a program that provides as cheaply as possible plenty of proteins and min- erals In the ration. And in getting them cheaply by the use of growing crops, we have gone a long way in satisfying the sanitary requirements by eliminating chances of loss from some of the contagions dtsea.s and para- sites of the overcrowded hog loL .

(Prepr br the United tatm Delrtmen[ Of Agriculture.) Sometimes we are prone to think that lYraetlees advanced by the extension service are slow to become general farm practices, jffany times It is nec- eamir to look over a long period of years to witness results. This Is not so, however, in Dutcheas county, N. Y., according to reports to the United States Department of Agriculture. In this county the superiority of Cornel- lion oats has been demonstrated. This year commendable tangible results were forthcoming. In all, 3,(}00 bushels of these new oats have definitely been put in the ground. This is how the seed improvement program has been worked. The follow- ing example Is but typical of the work in other communities. The county agent met wlth the Mlllerton communi- ty committee and, in llanning their program, they desired to stress the Im- portance of a larger acreage of Im- proved oats. With the data on the va- riety demonstrations which had al- ready been in that eomnmnlty, the committeemen had a selling point that could not be discounted, as the demon- stratlon was held under local comli- tions. The committeemen brought this to the attention of th e growers and, as a result, .one carload of oats and 200 bushels of Alpha barley were ordered. The Imblicity that this program de- veloped has spread to other communi- ties until the oat lmproyement program has been like an epidemic. Further co- operation was secured through local warehouse men, who distributed this Improved sort. Fully 1,000 acres of oats were sown In Dntchess county as a result of the camtlgn. Dust Bath for Chickens Kills Harmful Insects Many people are not aware of the fact that dust acts as an insecticide to id poultry of lice aml mites. Have you ever noticed how a hen enjoys a dust bath? If no dust can be found she will wallow out a hole In the ash" or cinder pile and dust herself from head to foot. It is a well-known fact that lice and mites are more trouble- some In damp weather, simply b- cause no dust can be found. When the hen takes a dust bath she is fol- horses and pmltry during sultry sum- I mer weather has been a problem lhat has-Increased as the number of win- dows used hes multiplied. Ordinarily, the windows In a hog house act aa a suntrap when the thermometer is reg- istering 90 degrees in the shade, mak- ing a bakeovn out of the place. Such heat fries the weight out of hogs. To have plenty of sunshine In the hog house in the winter, spring and fall forces the use of a large amount of glass In Its construction. Various methods of shutting out the sun have been used. The most effective way of maintaining a cooler temperature in hams and hog houses is to paint the glass on the inside with an entirely opaque paint. Paint is both too ex- pensive and too hard to remove to be profitable. This explains the welcome accorded by tarme to a new product derived from clay, which shuts out the sun Suitable Age of Dairy Heifer for Fimt Calf The pr.per age of heifers for first mlvlng is always a fruitful source of Jiscussion among dairymen. One group points to the necessity of proper physical development before the cow begins on Its very arduous task of eldlng milk througa ten months or more of the year. The other side holds that late calving gives the beef qual- Ities In the cow time to develop and encourages a tendency toward coarse- nesa in tbe dairy animal. In the terms of ordinary dairying, the question turns on which System, In the long run, makes the most money. Does the production of the mature cow make up for the extra feed put into her during the non- earning period? Dims the added year or two of production in early life of the early CalDer balance the possible loss In vitality and in long-tame aver- age production? An exl)erlment that has been con- dusted at the Connecticut experiment station throws an interesting light on this question. Ten Cows were lnclud- ad in the experiment. Five calved at the average rate of two years and one and four-tenths mouths. The other five averaged three years and one month at calving time. In the first lactation period, the late calvers produced at nearly double the rate of the early calvers. During the second lactation weriod the late alvers made a record 60 per cent geater than the early calvere. In the third period the early salvers made about the mime record as the late calvers. One Interesting point about the re- sults Is that it was not until they reached the third lactation period that the early calvers made, as good a rec- ord as the late ca#PeTS made in their first lactation period. The late calvera, aged three years and one month at the time of frehening, made 13,128 pounds of milk and 443 pounds of fat in their first period. The early calvers, aged four years, nine and one-half months at the third freshening, aver- aged 13,552 pounds of milk and 407 pounds of fat. All the cows In this tt were of the same general breedlng and all received the same care. The numbers involved are too small and the time covered too short to warrant any positive con- clusion.

Superior Qualities of SiIage for.Dairy Cows Silage Is a succulent, grasslike feed and stimulates digestion. It has the same effect as grass, giving thrift to the animal; and less sickness is ex- perienced among stock when good the cinders sieved out. You can Im- prove this by adding a nall amount of insect powder to the ashes. lowing nature's law to fight insect silage ia fed. Silage stimulates the pests.

Oats contain one pound of protein to nix of carbohydrates, which In Itself Is a balanced grain ration. No grain Is better for milk producing cows or cows about to freshen. It is for sup- plying the unborn calf with nutrlent for growth. It should be ground If It can be done on the farm. Wheat compares in feeding value with corn, but Is little ted because of lta price. Wheat brah is high In protein, rash and carbohydrates, but Its market price usually prohibits Its use. It has a good effect upon the system, but It Is ad- visable to feed it only to cows before and after freshening, and young grow- Ing stock. MIddlings are not palatable or eaMly digestible. Barley can be usBd to supplement corn and should be rolled, or preferably ground. Heavy Grain Feeding Is Not Always Profitable Heavy grain feeding may make a ttter showing on a milk sheet, but sot in the net profits, except with those dairy farmers who live near desirable markets where they can sell their hay and dairy products for extremely hight i price. If the roughage Is tough and fibrous the proportion of concentrates must be larger.
