Fitting Stock for Show Requires Careful Work Fitting cattl- for show means the preparation of an animal to appear at Its best. With the meat-producing animals, fattening is the most Im- portant part of fitting, but the fat must be firmly and evenly laid on. This holds true with breeding animals as well as market stock. While the breeding animal may never go directly to the block Its value depends on Its ultimate ability to produce meat stock. It cannot demonstrate this ability in thin condition. The Judge has to make his award on the animal as It appears before him. not on what It might be like If given a fair chance. The failures of new exhibitors are mainly due to poor fitting and show- Ing. Most Judges prefer to encourage new exhibitors where pos,Ible, and generally regret to turn down good possibilities for lack of condition. Getting an animal fat enough Is only. part of the problem, I Is a greater problem to get it at Its best at Just the right time. After show cattle have reached their prime, their flesh may get hard ,r too soft and blub- bery. Sheep may be so hPghly fitted that they are practically ruined for breeding purposes. Ideal condition Ol "bloom" Is reached whPn the coverlnl of fat Is evenly distributed over the body and Is springy, but firm and smooth. Rolls or lumps of fat that appear on the ribs or around the tail- head are ohjectionable, but are some- times hard to avoid. V/here anlmal are to be carried In show condltton over a fair season lasting five or stx mnnths, they are started in compara- tively light condition, both on account of the warm weather and the danger of overdoing them later. Hand-Rearing of Orphan Foals Is Difficult Job Wlth the best of good fortune there are always a few orphan foals to be cared for every year, and their feed- ing Is a problem to those who have never attempted it on artificial food supplies. Hand-rearing Is not an easy task and Involves clcme attention to details. Naturally cow's milk is the common substitute for the milk of the dam. but it requires some slight modifica- tion. If possible choose a cow that has calved recently and one whose milk Is not Hob ti butterfat. Dissolve about a tablespoonful of sugar---preferably white sugar--in a little warm water. To this add three to five tablespoonfuls of lime water, and then a sufficient quantity of cow's milk to make a pint. Lime water not only serves to dilute the milk. but It also tends to correct digestive trou- bles. The amount to feed Is about one- quarter to half a pint at each feeding at first. The feeding periods should be about one hour apart for the first few days. When a foal suckles, it does so fre- quently, but It only takes a small amount at a time. Total Returns From Ewe Estimated at About $50 A shet.p or lamb carcass has value only once as such, and that is when sold for slaughter. Speaking general- ly, ewe, when  for her first lamb, Is at the most valuable period of her life, If the sheep and lamb market does not fluctuate. If worth $10 then, she fs worth, on the average, only about $4 when discarded after having produced, say, five lambs. Dur- ing her useful life of seven years she produces seven fleeces of about eight pounds each and worth 45 cents a pound at present prices. She there- fore grows wool "to the value of $25.20. On the average she will raise aboui four lambs during her five breeding years, and one of these will be re- tained to replace the dam. three being sold for slaughter or fattening at $7] each, or $21 for the lambs. The ewe will sell for about $4; making $25 re- ceived from animal sales and $25.2(] from wool sales, or a total of $50.20. Lack of Cleanliness Is Cause of Many Diseases Nearly all disorders or diseases of calves, says the United States Depart- ment of Agriculture, are caused either directly or Indirectly by lack of clean- liness. Filth, whether It Is In feed, pens, bedding or pails and utensils, Is dangerous to the health of the calf. To be on the safe side use nothing but clean milk (sweet or sour), scald the pails or sterilize them With steam, remove old feed from the boxes and l clean them daily. Filth and dirt are the natural breeding places of man bacteria that will cause disturbances In the young animal's stomach. Free dora from filth usually means freedom from disease. Good Health Necessary for Success With Pig If you have ever gotten weighed be- fore and after a ell of ickne you will remember that you lot weight. The same thing "is true of the pig, Imys Prof. I V. Starkey, chief of the ani. real husbandry division, who states that good health s necessary for sue- eesl pig raising, and adds that If pig Is not in a seed thrifty condRlou It may lose weight Instead of gallain. -(Nemson Cellege Bulletin. r Balanced Ration Needed for Eggs Profitable Returns From Laying HensAre Largely Due to Good Feed. tPrepnred by the Ur*:ted State Department of Agriculture, ) Good egg production and profitable returns from laying hens are largely the result of properly balanced ra- tions composed of wholesome feeds. Experlmeuta In lmultry feeding for egg production carried on by the United States Department of Agriculture show that It takes about 6.7 pounds of feed to produce a dozen eggs with general-purpose pullets while the egg- laqng strains, such as Leghorn& re- quire about 4.8 pounds of feed. Old hens require a much larger amount of feed In producing a dozen eggs. Rssult From 81mple Mixture. Simple mixtures composed of home- grown grains and their by-products, supplemented with meat or fish scrap or milk, give the most profitable re- sets. A good scratch mixture is one made of two parts cracked corn and one part oats, while a mash of three parts cornmeal and one part meat scrap will be found very satisfactory. A fair amount of green feed with these rations should give good results with the flock, since the mash and scratch mixtures suggested combine the animal-protein feed, bulk, and fat required by a good balanced poultry ration. The rations may be varied to In- elude feeds that are easily obtained and that are comparatively Inexpen- sive. Corn, wheat, )ats and barley are the principal grains fed to poultry. Kafir corn and huckwheat are used also. but are not so generally avail- able and cost more. Corn and wheat are the two best grains and are about equal In value as poultry feeds, al- though wheat can be fed alone better than corn, which Is Inclined to be fat- tening. Outs and barley, on account of their hulls and higher fiber content, are not so good as wheat or corn, Rye Is not well relished by fowls and Is seldom fed. Wheat screenings or slightly damaged grains may some- times be bought to advantage, their value depending entirely upon their quality and condition, but as a rule It Is good policy to stick to sound grains in good condition. Mash Made of Ground Grains. A mash made of ground grauls, mill products, and meat scrap may use cornmeal, wheat bran, wheat mid- dling or corn chop, corn-and-cob meal. or ground oat& depending upo the feeds available and the relative cost of each. It Is worth remember- lag, however, that Just as good results can be obtained with a simple mash containing three or four ground grains and meat scrap as from a highly com- plicated mash containing ten or twelve products. Insects Attack Apples While Held in Storage With more attention being paid to the grading of apples, anything which contributes to the deterioration of the fruit after peeking or in storage will be of considerable interest to fruit growers. Observations made at Geneva and elsewhere show that late summer lnsect sometimes escape the notice of the packer and are put In sforsge, where later they may develop and do much damage to the fruit. The larvae, or worr form of leaf- roller& bud moth and ease-bearers have been found feeding on apples piled In the orchard, while codling- moth larvae, the lesser apple worm, Sau Jose scale and apple maggots are known to have continued their feeding and development In supposedly sound fruit which bad been placed In stor- age. Fortunately the codling moth and apple maggot confine their efforts to a single infested fruit, but tile apple worm and San Jose scale may pass from apple to apple. If the frnlt can he placed in cold storage and held at Just above freez- ing point until ready for use, little if any injury will result from insects In- advertently carried oer with the ap- ples. Although the larvae may not be killed, the low temperature will effec- tively check their growth. However, Infested apples never keep quite so well in storage as do sound apples. Exhaust of Automobile Is Sure Death to Lice Most every farmer has a car of sone kind; and most every farmer has chickens, and therefore is troubled with vermin In the chicken house at some time. Well, here is the connec- tion. It is new and reliable. Just attach a rubber hose to the ex- haust pipe of your motor and put the other end in the chicken house--with the chickens all out, of course. Close the house as tightly as you can. let the motor run about ten minutes, and bingo I Bugs, llce, mites and other vermin are gone. It is the cheapest lice killer known.

When the leaders of the live stock Industry promoted the bahy beef club work among boys and girls, they did not expec that ,within only a few years these Juniors would be able to surpass the experienced veterans In the show arena. But this. however, happened at the recent Indiana state fair when the winner In the baby beef contest showed in the open classes and defeated the breeders themselves for the grand championship of the show. The boy who had this proud distinc- tion was William Robert Wilson, the son of the well-known Aberdeen-An- gus breeder, W. W. Wilson of Muscle, Indiana. After winning at his county fair, the young man took his baby beef, Baron W. to Indianapolis to compete for the state championship. TheYe he met stiff competition In the show of 62 calves, 24 of which were Short- horns, 22 Aberdeen-Angus and 16 Here- fords. This promising stockman was asked to tell the story of his success for the benefit of the thousands of faruer boys and girls who are enrolled In club work all over the country. The following account is given In his own words : "The calf thnt I showed In Indian- apolis Is a pure bred Ank, us. His sire Is Behnont E. Baron an(l his dam Is William Wilson and Hia Champion Steer, Baron W. Leona Dean. I named him Baron W. I bought him of my father in March. He weighed on March 1, 9"0 pounds. "When I bought him he was running In the lot with other cattle, feeding on ensilage, clover hay and straw. I tied him Ul) for a week and began to feed him some ground oats and corn and otl meal with his cnsllage and carried him water. "I won grand champion on him at our county fair and then I took him to our state fair. where I won first in the calf club and grand champion of the club. Then he won first in the open Angus class and was made champion Angus steer and later grand champion ove all breeds. I am going to show him at the International Live Stock Exposition In the Calf club centraL" Professor W. J. Kennedy, Sioux City0 Iowa, who Judged the steers at In- dianapolis, is reported to have stated that the animals shown there were among the best he had seen thl year. Ordinary Grain Binder Will Handle Soy Beans The essential thing when harvesting soy beans for grain is to do the work Just when the pods are nearly ripe, for even a few days' delay will cause many of the dead-ripe pods to shatter. The Iowa experiment station says that small acreages of soy beans may be economically handled with an ordinary grain binder, for then the sheaves can be shocked like other grain and left until they are fit to hull. "]['he beans may be colored up some from the rains, but they will he kept sound and sweet and will be fit for feed or for seed. Energetic Fowls Found to Be Best Egg Layers 'The fowl that lays during the win- ter Is the one that lays best during the summer months," says Annabelle Campbell, poultry specialist In the of- rice of extension work with women, Minnesota university. "The fowl that lays best under adverse conditions Is the one that also, after .q short rest, produces during the winter, rests for a time and then comes Into lay- In the spring and continues lay- ing during the summer months until fall. The best fowls In the flock are tkose that require the least amount of rest." Production of Turkeys Decreasing Every Year The production of turkeys seems to decrease yearly. Perhaps this ts dut to the Increase In the production o capons. Certain It is that capons are much easier to false, and there ar many people who will tell you that they like capon meat better than that of the turkey. IAttle has ever been done In the way of ralslng turkeys Ill coaflaemet. When It has been tried the results have bes dlseoursIn Cpoml, on rite ether hand, esn Soup Can Be Prevented by Providing Dry House Roup can be revented by. keeping the poultry In dry, well ventilated houses all(] feeding balanced ratious. Under such conditions lra case a pears the bird should be killed and burned or buried deeply, sys a writer In Successful Farming. Treating a case of roup la very discouraging. The bird with roup Is suffering ex- treme prostration and the discharges from the disease have a repulsive odor. This odor Is the factor that determines whether the hen has roup or a simple cold. If a hen has a cold It Is only a few steps to a case of roup. Isolate hens with running eyes and treat them with one of the coal tar disinfectants or a c0mercial roup remedy. Place per- manganate of pot:h in the drinking water to keep the dlsease from pread- tng. Color the waer a deep red. Never return a bird with a cold to the flock until she is thoroughly cured and lookS like a healthy, vigorous specimen. We know of one case where a hen was treated for roup and then liber- ated before a cure bad resulted. In about a week, eight other hens in the flock were sick with the disease, and after another week of fussy unpleas- ant doctoring, all of tle sick hens had to be killed to proteet the remainder of the flock, A hen which has had a severe cold should be banded so she will not be Included In the breeding pens the next year. When tile disease has progressed until It results In roup the blrd is weakened and more subject to a repeti- tion of the disease. This trouble Is so serious when once srartml that the owner of a g.od flock of p,)ultry ruut not hesitate to sacrifice the best-look- Ing hen In the flock If. she contracts the disease. It is necessary to protect the balance of the flock and prevent a serious flnanclsl loss. Co-0perative Marketing of Eggs Is Profitable The farm poultry flock has been made a source of (:ash income a8 Well as for food for tim family by many farm wolnen who illlVe h, arned from their agricultural extension aents the best methods of poultry management and preparation of products for mar- ket, The experience of the women of Falrimveu (Ga.) community, Is typical of the work in many states. These farm women, desiring to improve the earnings of their flocks, brought eggs to the weekly meeting of the exten- sion club, where the home-demonstra- tion agent slnnved them how to grade and pack properly for shipmnt. This was continued each week until the members were able to do the work themselves. They then organized to ship their eggs co-operatively, secured as customer a grocery store In a near- by cry, and. according to reports tO the United States Department of Ag- riculture, have been carrying on a sat- Isfactory business for more than a year. New co-operative egg marketing as- sociations organized In 1922, according to reports, handled 420,000 dozen eggs; In 1921 some 400 new organizations handled about 200.000 dozen eggs. All Hens Show Decided Preference for Wheat A recent test at one of the state ex- periment stations provided certain amounts of various feeds for the hens, and what they left was carefully weighed back in an effort to see which foods the hens preferred naturally. Almost all the hens showed a de- cided preference for wheat, which is generally used as a lmultry feed. Kaffir stood next in popularity, followed by corn and cornmeal, but oats, bran and sunflower seeds dhl not prove very popular. Alfalfa leaves were also passed by pretty generally. A shnliar test showed that the use of either beef scrap or sour milk makes the hen's egg record at least twlce as good as thongli she were fed no animal fed wttatever, and that aour milk Is .llghtlv better than beef scrap for hls purpose, In addition to being cheaper and easier to get on most farms. Proper Care of Poultry Is Apparent xn Autumn Now Is a time when the good care of poultry shows up. The flocks which have been underfed through the sutn- mer are not ready for winter laying, The pullets which have had a balanced ration have developed plenty of vigor, The poultry keeper who has neglected his flock cannot hope to make up for lost time. The best of rations will help to Improve the poorly-fed flock, but they will never equal the btrds that have made a retold normal growth from the start. Dispose of All Fowls Weak and Lacking Vigo Cull all hens that are slek, weak, Inactive, lacking in vigor, poor eaters, with shrunken, hard, dull or whitish- colored comb; small epread or dlstance between rear end of keel and pelvic bones; full, firm, or hard abdomen; and these that have molted or begun to molt  Ant or September, In, V! low lap and skl Iso sho andTe DOGTORS WANT00 TO ,,OPERATE Pinldmm's Vegetable Compmml Saved Her hem an Opmdim in Muskegon, Michigan. -- ' 'Aft g for eight or nine yearswith diffemet; .... .................. physicians witbn illlllllUliJlilllllllllianyrelief at altbe II1!!11111 saldatlast that me lUilrlllJ Illicinewod notrem ! ilmY case and I Illhave an operatim, I III1  ' JBIII had heaxd e,_ IIIIIr: d111111 Zkhm Vp_ !i111[/ AIIIIIIIItab]e Compound_ illlllllllloften saw tt admm IBF : lillllllll tied in different iR .... , ./llllrs where m l./llwomen had suffev ,t a I did m well and strong again Dy taking theVe- etab|e Compound.
