Increase Productiveness of Herd by Better Sires Keeping books with your cows is the only sure way to build a herd of high producers. By selecting csws on their records, discarding the unprofit- able ones, using only good pure bred sires, and raising heifer calves from the best cows, (me is sure to increase the productiveness of the herd. It is also advisable to weigh each milking because it enableS one to feed intelligently and if sickness, neglect or abuse has caused a cow to drop in milk a remedy may be applied before the loss becomes seriou Weighing milk creates interest among the mitkem and encourages clean milking and careful treatment of the cows. The greatest source of loss to the dairy industry Is the unprofitable cow. A certain cheese factory paid one of ItS patrons $877 for the product of eight cows while It gave another patron $868 for the milk from 22 cowl t pays to keep records. Ropiness in Milk Caused by Growth of Bacteria A rop,y or slimy condition of milk, sometimes 'noticeable after the mllk has stood several hours, Is caused by the growth of a certain class of bac- teria which gain entrance after the milk is drawn. Though probably not more injurious than ordinary sour milk, this condi- tion is especially troublesome, as the bacteria are passed along through yes- sell and otherwise to other milk and even to the dairies of an entire com- muulty. The remedy Is thorough washing and sterilizing of everything that in any way comes In contact with the milk. Chlorinated lime, or bleaching powder, at the rate of 12 or 16 ounces to the 100 gallons of water ls recommended by the dairy department of the Ohio xperiment station as a safe and ef- .'ectlve disinfectant, Find Crushed Corn Best at New Jersey Station At the New Jersey station ear corn was compared to corn and cob meal for feeding cows. The corn was br,ken on the cob and compared to corn crushed In the ear; 6 pounds wl}eal bran, 10 pounds corn stover an(] 9.4 pounds of hay produced '20.2 Fonnds milk with .89 pounds of fat for each cow, while 6 pounds corn and cob meal, 6 pounds wheat bran with sam ,)o amount of hay and stover produced _..l pounds milk, 93pounds fat. Thus e0rn-ad-c,,b mea exceeded corn from the ear by 9.4 per cent for milk and 4.5 per cent in yield of fat. 8ava Ho!fer Calves.

(Prepared by the United Statee Department of Agriculture.) Directions for the growing of green- house cucumbers are given in Farm- ors' Bulletin 1320, "Tile Production of Cucumbers in Greenhouses," by James H. Beattfe, horticulturist, of the United States Department of Agriculture, which has Just been released for dts- tribution. Greenhouse-grown cucumbers, says tile bulletin, occupy a high place In the estimation of those who have learned to appreciate their superior quality. While the cucumber Is not high in food value, It is extremely popular,, owing to the fact that it is an appetizer with a sprightly flavor which appeals to most. lsatates. The development of the Vegetable-forcing industry in this coun- try was largely influenced by the win- ter demand for cucumbers, lettuce, and tomatoes, and these have always been the most important vegetable-$orclng crops produced in the various sections of the United States. According to available records, cucumbers are see- and in hnportance, with lettuce occupy- ing first place. These croprepres nt at least 90 per cent of the "$15,000,000 annual value of the vegetable-forcing crops produced in this country. Factors Influence Growth. Many factors have afluenced the growth of the vegetable-forcing indus- try in the sections where It has at- i tained considerable importance. The imodern forcing house makes It possi- :ble to produce a high-grade product i over a wide range of seasons and to put it on the market within a few hours after It is harvested. CucUm- bers grown in this manner can be car- [ rled to the proper stage of maturity on the vines aud put Into the hands of the consumer in a fresh state. Few vegetables lose more In quality by not being sem, ed perfectly fresh than does the cucumber. The use of the forcing house makes It possible to mature the crop at seasons when the outdoor- grown crop is not available. More- over, it is possible to grow greenhouse cucumbers $o that they can be mar- keted in competition with much of the eutdoor-grown crop produced in the winter-gardening sections of the oun- try, wlteh has been off the plant for a considerable period and which must bedr an exceedingly high transporta- tion and handling cost before It reacheS the consumer. Emntlale for Success. Succts depends on the kind of greenhou used, the availability of cheap fuel and labor, reedy accaas to Imitable markets, and lo attention to detail, says Mr. Seattle. Chcumber forcing IS a highly specialized form of work, and under favorable conditions he indm|try is profitalle. The bulle- tin dlmsse the Nsentiain of the in- dustry Including the best types of gOUSes to use. soils and fertllig- era, earlties to grow, manalment of the crop, harveetl and marketing, and other crepe to grow during the hort days of midwinter. The yields depend upo the eare and attention given the crop. Under- favor- able coadlUons from 80 to 0 cucum- bers may be expected from each plant. As man7 u 100 to 120 cucumbers haw often been gathered from a mingle plant. As a rule, heavier y|eids will be eecur from pring grown cucum- bers.'than are had from a fall or win- ter crop. The price r,ved variea greatly and may ran from as low aa 50 cent8 to $2 or more per dom. The cucumber is one of the most promising of the vegetable-faming crops, but it can be neoefully pro- dueod only by paying close attention to ll the details of thiz highly ape- cialiged industry.

Satisfactory Formula for Damp-Proof Facing A very satisfactory damp-proof kal- somine for plaster walls is madq as follows: Take 16 pounds of paris white, or extra glider's whiting and dissolve It in one gallon of boiling wa- ter; soak half a pound of white sizing glue for four hours in hail a gallon of cold Water and dissolve in a water bath ; dissolve one-quarter pound phos- phate of soda in one-ghth of a gallon of boiling water; mix the first and last mixtures together and then add the second. If a thicker stock is required use a half gallon of water instead of a gallon in which to dlolvs the paris white. Artificial Lights Will Increase Egg Production Addition of extra windows, partlc.. larly near the floor Will allow ore light to enter the houmm in the'earl evenings of winter and keep the chickens from going to roost.

(Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture. ; Potato brown-rot, a bacterial dis- ease which not only attacks potatoes. hut also eggplant, pepper, tomato, to- bacco. Jimson weed, black nightshade, peanut, and other plants, is destructive to plants tn the field and to the tubers after they have been harvested, ac- cording to Department Circular 281. "Potato Brown-Rot." by F. C. Meier and G. K. K. Link, recently published by the United States Department of Agriculture to provide lnfornmtion on the prevention of losses in shipping and marketing the potato crop. This disease is world-wide in tropical countries and occurs especially on low land. The trouble begins in the field through infection from the soil or from leaf-eating insects. The plant's wilt and die. The tubers show a 'ring browning, especially at the stem end, and decay rapidly. Other cuL bruised, or injured potatoes in the same pack- age become infected by contact. Field control is not understood. Fur- ther experiments are needed, but losses In shipping are lessened by early har- vesting of diseased fields, through sorting, and Immediate use. Decay In transit or storage is lessened if the potatoes can be held at a temperature below 55 degrees. Copies of the circular may be had by addressing the Department of Agricul- ture, Washington, D. C. Destroying Foulbrood in Season Favoring Malady The way to handle American foul- brood in a season when conditions are favorable for the spread of the dis- ease is to kill the bees after dark with sulphur or a pint of gasoline. This is the advice of C. O. Yost, secretary of the Indiana Bee Keepers' associa- tion. He suggests several plans. Says he : "Stop the entrance tight, carry the hive inside a bee-tight inclosure, there destroy combs, etc., and scorch fix- tures thoroughly. Another plan : Do all the treating under a light creen tent that may be carried around and set over the colony to be handie<L Another plan: 'lake a sick colony couple of mile8 from any bees, treat there, allow them to quiet down and move home. If gasoline Is used the entrance should first be closed. Raise the hive cover and with a little smoks chess all bees down from top bar, then empty the pint of gasoline around top of frame close hive cover fight. The hive and dead bees may be taken Inside and the usual mthods of cleaning, etc., csrrled out.

During the past few months the United States Department of Agricul- ture has re'eived many requests from all parts of the country for informs- tits concerning two so-called new , "breeds" of poultry, the "Turken" and the "Kiwi". The department has been aware of advertisements concerning I these new and novel "breeds", for whlch some rather remarkable claims have been made. The advertisements l and literature describing the origin and qualities of these "breeds" seem to have aroused much interest on the part of the public, since the depart- mant has recently received several urgent requests for an explanation re- garding the reliability of the claims made. The statements in the advertise- meats and literature claim that the "*Turken" was originally crossing a male turkey with a female chicken, and that the "Kiwi" was pro- duced by crossing a male ostrich with a female chicken. ucceasful crosses have been made between the pheasant and the chicken, and in practically every case the progeny has been of the male sex and sterile. Also. successful crosses have been made between the guinea and the chicken and here, again, the sex of the progeny has almost Invariably been male and the hybrids have been sterile. Both of these crosses have been made with great dlflculty and, so far as known, no cross giving any progeny has ever been reported between the turkey and the chicken. Furthermore. It is highly improbable that the progeny, if any have ever been eeured, would breed at all, and Certainly not readily. In such wide or violent crosses the progeny 15 always sterile, and the claim that the "Turken", which Is reported to be the hybrid progeny of a cross between the turkey and the hlckeR, is in all probability uet founded on fact. One other point must be made con- cerning the so-called 'l'urken", says the department. The lllustratlons ac- companying the advertisements and lit- erature are In all probability photo- graphs of the Transylvania naked- neck ehleken According to the best information obtainable this odd-look- i Ing breed originated in West India and the charactorstic naked-neck has bred true for many years. It is a' distinct character of the breed. The depart- ment beiisvea that the so-called 'l'ur- ken" hi nothing else than the Transyl- vania ked-neck chicken, which ap- ratly posaeH no qualities superi- sr to the more important standard brads and varieUea and has not been shown to be partteulariy well adapted to condlUons in many parts 6f our eountry. i Am far u the reported cross giving tqee to the "Kiwi" is concerned, there . much less evidence in support of should be cleaned frequently (once a ck a crone than in the ease of the week IS satisfactory), becauee disease Jurken".

It is better when the stover is needed aa a feed to castle iL for in the silo it will keep more palatabl a larger por- tion of It will be consumed, and bette results will be obtained by feeding it. Corn stover should be looked upon a a reasonably good, dry carbonaceou feed, but should be fed in limited quantities because of lts low protein content.

SMffH BROTHERS K_.._K COUGH DROPS sim:e 1847 ONLY ONE SUN GUN IN WORLD  WHERE WILD GAME At Noon Sun's Rays Are Focused on Cannon in Portugal and It la Fired Automatically. An automatic sun gun, the only one known to be In existence in the world, Is at the Pens castle at Cintra. Portu- gal, some twenty miles from Lisbon. The castle is one of th finest monu- ments of its kind in the world. It was once a stronghold of the Moors; in fact, the last that the Moors held in Portugal. This sun dial and gun gives the correct time to the surrounding towns and hanflets from Its height of 2.000 feet. The cannon between the quad- rant on the front of the dial is of bronze and supports a convex lens on adjustable arms, adjustable for twelve months at a time. At noon each day the sun's rays are focused on the touch-hole of the cannon and thus It is automatically fired. Pens castle was the summer palace of the late king of Portugal, from which he fled In 1910. Among the Doctors. "Germany has a remarkable num- ber of men who have the right to be called 'doctor.'"
