B. Fitch, head of the dairy depart- ment of the Kansas State Agriculture -ollege. Butterfat is 14 cents higher than it was a year ago. With a 10.000,000 pounds' shrink in the volume of butter in storage dur- Ing the past year, with imports great- er during 19")-3, and with the Industrial situation good, Professor Fitch Is of the opinlou that butter prices will re- main steady. He states that farmers contemplating the purchase of cows I need have no fear that because dairy- ' Ing Is a profitable business it will soon i be overdone. He points to the fact that our population Is Increasing more rapidly than the cow population. High Producing Cow Has Big .Capacity for Feed Why one cow will make a heavy producer while her stable mate of the Game age and Mmiiar breeding, under the same management falls to pay her way is a problem mary men have given up. At the Missouri experiment station two such cows were found. A careful study of the feed sheeU! showed that the high producer was eating a great deal mare feed than the other cow..In other words, the good cow. because of large capacity and a well-developed mammary sys- tem, was able to not only eat enough for her bodily needs but conslderebly more besides. The poor producer. after satisfying the needs of her body, had no room left to store feed from which to make milk. Secure Economical Milk by Liberal Cow Feeding The most economical milk produc- tion is not secured by liberal feeding of each cow In the herd, but by studp lag caeh cow and feeding according to the production of each. ,giving to the heavy producers all the feed they will eat and convert Into milk, and giving the light producers no more feed than theY can utilize for milk production. Overfeeding is to be avoided just as much as underfeeding. Keep Promising Helfer You cannot afford to buy tnferio eows when you can raise good ones at him. Farmers should keep proml ing heifers and raise their own milkers. Popular Tetlng AssoiatioL Cow-test|rig associations are grad- ually bkcoming popular througho West. One Cow In $tx a Lr.

Bronchitis. canker, roup and other aeute diseases may show this symptom. The constant breathing of dry dust, especially if It be gritty and alkaline, is sometimes reponslble where fowls show this trouble but have no real disease. In Its advanced stages, "rattles" Is a hard dlsee#e to care. The best help comes through prevention.. Pure air, clean dropping boards and floors, sweet food an  wa- ter do more to pre'en[ "rattlel an drugs. New Seed Treatment Is Time Saver for Farmer One great advantage in using the copper carbonate dust method for treating Beet] wheat and oats for the control Of smut is the fact that the work can be done In the late fall or winter when other farm tasha are less arduous. 3. G. LeaCh. plant authority of the University of Minnesota, Bays that two ounces of the copper carbon- ate dust should be used for each bushel of grain. "After treatment the graIn can be sacked or Stored in a bin until spring, when it is "ready to plant without fGrther attention.

Straw House for Swine Is Easily Constructed Where It is Impossible to have a well-built hoghou, either Individual or centralized, a good straw one can be used. The north, east and west sides should have two feet of well- pressed straw, the uth sf#e may be boarded up and hould have a hinged door near the roof which can be dropped daring sunny weather. The roof should be fin or commercial roll roofing as straw will leak In a heavy rain or snow. Allow plenty of room for the desired number of hogs. The greatest disadvantage of this house is Improper ventilation. Avoid Crowding Chicken House Beyond Capacity Avoid filling the chicken hOUse with chickens beyond Its capacity.

Three teaspoonfuls to a quart of water Is the right strength, and give four ounces of thin solution to each mature ,ewe that weighs 100 pounds or mote. For a smaller animal, more or less weak, use not more than three ounces, and for a five-months-old lamb, use not more than two ounces. Good Winter Ration for Eggs Is Easily Mixed A good winter ration for eggs is as follows: Serateh feed. 200 pmmds shelled or cracked corn, 100 pounds for each day, then the meat scraps or oats or wheat. With this feed a a mash, 100-pounds cornmeal, 100 pounds ground oats. 100 pounds wheat mid- dilngs, 100 pofinds wheat bran and 100 pounds meat craps or tankage. If you have 4 gallons Of milk per 100 hens tankage may be omitted. Pork From Fall Pigs Produced Economically The man Who has reasonably warm quarters for his fall pigs aud who gives them the right attention in connection with feeding can produce pork almoW as economically from fall as from spring pigs. Frequently he evn make more money out of fall pls, because tf sold early in the spring hogs usaully bring better prices than when the bulk of the spring pigs is Sold. Silage Undesirable for " Feeding Poultry Flock Although tdlage is a good succulent feed. It Is a dangerous practice to fd It to poultry.

Milk hould continue to b( fed along with the mash, and oyster shell and grain should continue to be fed In orde that the hen may store up surphm fat so that she can have fat to draw upon for the next year's production. Cutting down' in the feed will cause production to drop off. Any condition which stoIm egg production will cause birds to molt at this time of year. However, the eauslng of the early molting will not bring about a quick molt. On the contrary,, those that molt early are usually long-time molt- er Those that molt late are uually short-time molters. It Is therefore most profitable to continue to feed for egg productiou and let the fowls go into their natural molt, rather than to try and cmtrol thin in an way. Poultry Extension Servlce.

Courage IS boldness built of moral timber. Supply of Oyster Shell Is Essential to Fowls A constant supply of oyster shelle or limestone grit is essential to the most profitable egg production.
