The average superiority of pure brads over scrubs for all classes of farm animals is about 40 per cent. Of the principal points in which pure bred. excel other stock, the most prominent are: Superiority and uni- formity In conformation and ttype, greater sale value, early maturity, and economy In the convershm of feed into meat, milk, wool, and work. Surplus pure breds are readily sal- able at satlsfactor prices In the ma- jority of cases; but much depends on the breeding and production records and the business ability of the breeder. With rare exceptions, pure bred sire users are satisfied with the quality of the off.spring obtained, except that the desire is created in many cases to improve fle quality still further. The progeny of pure bred sires has practically a 50 per cent greater sale value than the progeny of sires not mre bred. Pure bred sires of good quality are eadlly obtainable In the experience of three-fourths of the breeders report- ing. The principal difficulties are: Paying the price and finding the d sirabie type, but there ta practically unanimous agreement that the results Justify the cost. The average increase in financial returns, from live stock raising, trace- able to the use of pure bred sires is 48 per cent. Docking of Lambs Great Help at Time of Selling Farmers who are engaged in the. sheep industry often forget tO dock and castrate thelr lambL Live stock commission men and packers are staunch supporters of cdtratlon and docking of lambs for market ptrrposes and pay more for animals which have recelved this attention. "Castration of lambs Is a simple op- eratlon and if performed et the proper time the lamb does not mind it and there Is little risk attached," says Prof. Phil. A. Anderson, anlnl husbandry- man at University farm at St. Paul, Minn. "lae operation should be done when the lamb Is ten days to two weeks old; older lambs can be un- sexed but with more risk. Use any seed disinfectant, having hands and knife clean. The lower one-third of the scrotum is removed and the tes- ticles forced out. The apermatlc cord should be drawn out with the fingers and cut off with a knife in a scraping manner in order to prevent excessive bleeding. After the operation is com- pleted apply a disinfectanL If blow- flies are abundant, apply a little clean pine tar. "Lambs that have not been docked present a poor appearance when mar- keted, but the main reason for dock- ing is that lambs on Summer pasture often scour. Such conditions invite the blow-fly and maggots and often the lamb is lost.." Breeding Ewes Require Exercise During Winter One very lmporzant factor In win- tering breeding ewes is to see thai they get plenty of exercise. Lack of exercise Is one of the causes of weak lambs. When it can be arranged, at least a part of the roughage should be fed in the field at some distance from the barns or the shed and the ewes should he out every day that the weather is fair. In fact, for best re- sults, the ewe should have the equiva- lent of at least a mile of exercise each day. In sheltering ewes, protect them from cold rains and driving storms. Many people make the mistake of not housing their ewes until they l)ave be- come wet or until practically all dam- age has been done. Low tempera- ture in the barn or shed is not serious so long as the sheep are dry under foot and over head. Have ventilation without strong drafts. Danger lies In having a barn too warm and damp, "Hard Luck" With Pigs Traced to Improper Feed A great deal of the so-called "hard hzck" with young pigs soon after far- rowing can be traced directly to im- proper feeding anti fn most cases to overfeeding of the sowa Just because a sow seems hungry Just after farrow- ing is no indication that she should receive feed. A liberal supply of water should al- ways be available. This will usually satisfy and quiet the sow. She should receive very little feed for at least 24 hours after farrowing. The first few feeds of grain should be light and fed In the form of thbck slop. She should not be on full feed for from six to ten days after farrowing. System in Feeding Pigs to Be Used for Breeding There should be system in feeding pigs that are to be used for breeding, "and that system should have for its purpose rapid growth and early ma- turity; but, at the same time, they Bhould be fed for growth of frame and tone--not fatted on corn. In addltioa a ted .amount of fibrous food should b in wlth each feed.

WOMAN VICTOR IH FIGHT WITH WOLF I:armer's Spouse Klls Vicmus Animal With Pitchfork After Terr;fic Batte. o AIDED B-Y--000 DOGS Cottonwood Falls, Kan.--Mrs. J. E. Adams, wife of a Toledo tuwnship farmer living ahout sex-an miles north- east of Strong City, staged a fight to the death with a big timber wolf on the Adams farm, which for tirilis and ferocity doubtless has seldom been sur- passed here, even in the early pioneer days when this country was wild and filled with dangers. Thought Wolf Was a Coyote. When Mrs. Adams heard tize com- motion In her poultry yard she saw what she took to be a big coyote. Seizing s stick, she ran toward the beast, thinking to frighten him away, when, to her surprise and horror, the big animal turned on her with open month, charging with ahnost unbeliev- able swiftness. .Mrs. Adams fled toward a wagon, on which set a hayrack, but failed to gain tize rack before the wolf was npon her. She barely had time to seize a pitchfork that stood against the wagon, and with this faced about and gave battle to the wolL She li 1 |1 Gave Battle to the Wolf. eucceeded In strikIng him tqc with the sharp tines of the fork, injuring him sufficiently to make him wary of her weapon; but he held her at bay, not giving her an opportunity to es- cape to the house or clamber upon the wagon. Pinions Wolf to Ground. At last the wolf adopted new tac- tics and tried to charge Mrs. Adams by quickly running around on the other side of the wagon and charging her from beneath the wagon, but this proved his undoing, for by a lucky thrust of her pitchfork the woman pierced the side of the wolf's neck with one tine and by thrusting her weight on the fork handle succeeded in holding the animal close to the ground. Two small dogs which live on the Adams farm and which up to this time had proved of but little avail in tle battle, immediately pounced upon the wolf and were slowly but surely wear- ing him out, when the wolf suddenly succeeded In tearing loose from th fork. For a mometkt, however, so oc- cupied was tie wolf witl his encoun- ter with the two dogs that Mrs. Adams' opportunity came, and she was able to strike the beast a terrific blow across the back with the fork handle, dazing him sufficiently untll she could complete her task by several well dl- rected blows on the head.
