Sne rais ff re.r l SIMPLE METHOD OF PUMPING NS California Inventor Has Utilized Old Principle With Results That Are Eminently SatiMactory. It Is said that a California inventor has utilized the principle of tile old river ferryboat in a plant for pump- ing water from a stream. The con- trivance consists of two parallel sweeps, 14 feet in length, attached to a reciprocating beam firmly anchored to the ground. The down- stream cn(] of the sweet,s connect with 16 verticM paddles arranged In two parallel rows in a suitable frame- work. The paddles are pivoted and have an angular movement of about 45 degrees. The pressure of the current against the paddle swings the sweeps across the river, where the angle of the paddles i. automat- ically reversed. Thus the sweeps move back and forth with the regu- larity of a pendulum. Attacted to a pumping unit on shore, the apparatus delivers $6 gallons of water a minute. --Washington Star.

Oh qNmBook upom "&iImema Hens of Various Breeds Most people who are attempting to put the flock on a scientific baals are perplexed as to the amount of grain which they should feed to their hens. Same people feed by measure, others by "handfuls" and most peo;,le by (PrIred b); the United State Depe-ment of Ag riculture.) Producing or otherwise obtaining their feed economically is the most troublesome feeding prtmlem of farm- ers who keep live stock. Thin wan from round wornm than frtrm hog cholera, areordlng to the department of anim husbandry of the New Jer- sey agricultural experiment station, but they do not attract so much atten- tion because few hogs actually die from worms. The damage comae from guesswork. Measure feeding Is probably to be condemned moe than any other method. Merely giving a quart pall of grain to the hens and letting It go at that is what causes so many poor flock records over the country. The hens should be fed all that they will con- mine, never by measure, yet measures can be used aa an indication of the amount they are likely to require. Morning feeding of grain should be Just sufficient to get the hens busy. Oats make a good morning feed and one quart to a hundred hens will keep them busy most of the morning, bUt where a balanced grain and mash ra- tion ls being fed you will not want to disturb It by feeding oats alone In the morning. Feed a small quantity of the grain mixture you are using In the morning, only enough to get the hen working and give them all they want at nlghL Experiments carried on by the fed- oral poultry farm authorities have brought out some interesting figures as indicating how much grain and mash by weight is required for fowls per day. General-purpose fowls, such as Rocks, Reds and Wyandottea, re- quire one quart of scratch grain and a quart and a half of mash per day for each 13 hens, or for each 16 hens of the smaller or egg breeds. This Is at the rate of 7 pounds each of grain and mash per day for 100 Leghorns and 9 pounds of each to 100 gen- eral-purpose fowls. Hens having range con.ume 75 pounds of feed in a year. while the Leghorns consume 55 pound in addition to the green food eaten.

It la to hlgh roosts that bumblefoot and lame- ness may be attributed, and It Is cheaper to have low roosts, all on tl same level, than to doctor fowls for laraeneu. Many Use Self-Feeder The report prepared by the depart- ment on the results of this feeding in- vestigation contains many more in- teresting sidelghts on feeding and corroborates a number of tendencie that good observers must have su pected, For instance, of 400 who an- swered question, s regarding the use of self-feeders, 4I.5 per cent had used this method of feeding, leaving about I three-fifths yet to take up this econ- omy. At present the self-feeder seems to be used moly In hog raising dis- tricts and for poultry. In t.he Middle ! West more than half the farmers re- porting used it.

NO Difference Between Lard and Bacon Types Little difference between lard and bacon types of swine was noted in n test recently conducted at the Mani- toba Agricultural college in Canada in which Poland Chinas and York- shires were compared as to gains and production costs. Pigs of each breed were fed a ration of equal parts of barley, oats and shorts for a period of 140 days. Corn was substituted for barley during part of the teat. The Poland Chinas made 100 pounds of gain on 415 pounds of feed and tl Yorkshlres made 100 pounds on 426 pounds of feed.
