W. of a test to be made at the Inter- Mead, New Jersey St:te College of Agrlc]ltnre. "The supp!emenral food method of raising calves has been used with con- slderahle success, and while the calv so raised will not be quite a fat and sleek as calves which are raised on the maximum amount of milk, they will, nevertheless, dewelop into healthy, norlml animals. "Allow the calf to remain with the dam for 48 hours. The first milk or coh'*.rum is laxative in its actl(m and insures the proper action of the bowels for the first few days. "Take the (xlf from the cow at the end of 48 hours and feed It from a Ix,tl. The amount to be fed depends on the slze and vlg*,r of the calf. On the average, three feedings a day, to- talinz six to eight pounds, are given during the first few (lays. '"l'hls amount sh,,uld be increased graduMly as long as the calf's appetite remains good and as long 'as scours da not set In. If the calf does scour, the milk should be taken away for one ot two feedings and a dose of castor oil administered. "By the time the calf is three or four weeks old It should be _given all the alfalfa and clover hay It will eat and a good grain mixture.

For several years there has been a difference of opinion among the lead- ing agricultural authorities as to whether the old type of corn or a different kind called the "Utility" type is the most profitable to raise. The main difference hetween the two types Is that the standard old type has a i I i "Utility" Type. I larger ear of rougher kernels while the : utility type has kernels that are smoother and fllntier.

Calves to Develop Well Must Have Sanitary Pens Lf calves are to remain healthy and develop perfectly they must not only be correctly fed but must have sani- tary quarters when in the stable.

To Exhibit Different TypeL At the coming grain and hay show which will be held in connection with Old Type of Corn. the famous International Live Stock expesitl/m at Chicago there will be an educational both where the different types of corn will be on exhlbltle. This display is being arranged by a committee of agronomists who will submit tmmple of the types of corn riley consider the most satisfactory for farmers to plant in their respective territories. The country is divided into six regions and the experts have been holding meetings in their sections dur- ing the summer and will have a final round-up gathering at the time of the show. These state representatives are Prof. A. L. Stone of Wlsconsin,.ProL A. C. Amy of Minnesota, Prof. J. F. Cox of Michigan, Mr. L. H. Newman of Canada, Prof. A. T. Wlancko of In- (liana, Prof. Wallace E. Hanger-of Ohio, prof. Joe L. Robinson of Iowa, Prof. C. A. Helm of Missouri, Proff. g. C. Haekleman of Illinois, alld Prof. L. E. Call of Kansas. It is hoped that the display arranged by this committee will tend to unify the types and will bring the adherents of the varlou styles closer together  that a stand- ard type for each region will be set up that will include the best features of each. In the open clases of the grain and hay show there are expected to be nearly three thousand samples entered by the champion corn raisers of the entire country. Cash prizes amounting to considerably over $6.000 for corn alone are offered bY the Chicago Board of Trade in addition to numerous rib- bons and desirable trophies. A sep- arate competition will be held by mere. bets of the boys' and girls' corn clubs to determine the "Corn Prince" or "Corn Princes" of the world. Re- duced railroad rates will be in effect oa all lines entering Chicago for this occasion and It is expected that s third of a million visitors will throng the metropolis to see the corn tiflem awarded and the many other interest- i1 features of the largest agrteul* oa tim fce (Prepared by the Un!ted States Department of AgVtcult ure.) A difference in the rapidity with which leading farm grain crops are marketed is shown by studies conduct- ed by the bureau of agricultural eco- nomics of the United States Depart- ment of Agriculture. Statistics on the monthly marketings by farmers over a Iive-year ir:od. 1917-1922, show thaL while there i conMderable variation In marketing activity from month to month, the fire-year average is fairly representative of the market condi- tions each season. According to the figures gathered by departmev workers and volunteer crop reporters stationed in the grain mar- kets of the eoun:ry, 62.1 per cent of the marketable amount of the wheat Cyop moves during the four months of July, August, September and October. while only 49.8 per cent of the oats crop marketed during the year mo-es during the same months. Similar fig- ures gathered for the four peak mar- ket months for the corn crop, namely, December, January, February and March, show that 47.2 per cent moves ]while the rest Is marketed gradually through the remaining months of the year. The significant fact, in interpret- ing these figures, is, however, that while nearly all wheat is sold except :hat needed for seed, only a small part of the corn and oat crops actually leave the farm. The department has no figures to show the monthly marketing by farm- ers of buckwheat, rice, the grain sorgimms" and kafir, but a study of the market figures for barley over the five- year period shows that 51.9 per cent of the annual market crop Is sold dur- ing the first four months after harvest. Unlike the other crops, the peak mar- ket months for flaxseed are September, October and November. An average of 59.2 per cent of the crop ie sold dur- ing these three months, while 67 per cent is marketed it December i is- eluded. Way to Progress Is by Use o Better Animals The success attained in the building up of a herd of grade or of pure bred animals will depend largely upon the care and understanding used in the selection of herd sires, say New York dairymen who have ma a cotmpicu- oas meee In Improving their daigle& The state college of agriculture at Ithaca backs this up by saying the average man must depend upon the law that "like produces like" and se- lect animals for breeding purposes that have the physical and producing characters desired in the offspring. Were it possible always to use proved sires, or sires with daughters of producing age, little chance would be taken in their selection. Unfortu- nately too few proved sires are avail- able and most men must select a younger, less expensive, and untried bull. In this selection, individuality and pedigree should be considered. Since there is a relation Jetween the size and conformation of an animal and its ability to produce satisfactory physical development and type must be insisted upon. A bull of good indivldualhy and de- velopment whose female and hale an- eestors in the near two or three gen- erations have made or have trans- mitted uniformly good productions. averaging well above that of the herd to be improved, should be selected. For grading, it would seem wise to require that the females in a sire's ancestry, should have at least shown sufficient ability to qualify for ad- vanced registry. Sneh a bull will usually transmit to bls offspring the producing ability so common to his ancestors. Young and unproved bulls of excel- lent breeding may be purchased at prices below their actual value. Poor Lubrication Will Cause Tractor to Wear After a tractor handles a load for 35 hours, 6 per cent of the lu- bricating oil will be kerosene that has been forced past the pistons, accord- lng to J. C. ,Vooley of Missenrt. And when oil has reached such a state of "dilution Its lubricating qualities are almost lost. A tractor forced fo up- crate on such oil wears out very rap. Idly. Careful investigations show that the crank-case should be drained after three or four days of work. The clean- eat of the oil may be poured back to flush the case. After It has been drained out, refill with new o11.
