DIGESTION OF FOODS.

From John W. Gates,

FEEDING PLATFORM FOR HOGS.
Aim Should Be to Keep the Animals
as Clean as Possible.
Where liogs arc maintained and fed
out of doors all seasons of the year It
Is not only advantageous but very es-
sential for the promotion of best sani-
tary condition, that some arrangement
be completed whereby the feeding
may be conducted upon clean, whole-
some basis. The farmer who feeds
bis hogs anywhere there Is a dry
place about the hog yard, Is likely
sooner or later to notice an unthrifty
appearance among some members of
Ills animals. Hogs when maintained
In pen out of doors will not do their
best unless they have some perma-
nent and sanitary feeding place
whereby they can receive their meals
regularly and In an acceptable con-
We handle all our hogs In yards dur-
ing the entire year and find with
proper arrangements we are able to
keep our animals cleaner and health-
ier than under any other system of
management, says a correspondent of
Prairie Farmer. We find that by pro-
viding proper conveniences for feed-
ing we can maintain a larger number
of hogs upon our farm without loss
The diagram herewith shows one of
our feeding platforms. This platform
The Feeding Platform.
has been In use for over five years
and has repaid for itself many times.
The platform was made by laying
down oak 4x4's and pianking over
with pine two-Inch stuff of fair qual-
ity. The trough is V shape made of
2x8-lnch stuff. The platform fronts
up to a fence whereby a slanting
board was fitted so that all the feed-
ing is done without interfering with
the hogs while eating. Slats four
inches wide are firmly nailed nine
inches apart to prevent the hogs from
getting Into the trough. The trough
is so arranged that with a broom it
can be thoroughly cleaned before
HARVESTING CORN WITH SWINE.
It Is Economical and Wise Under Cer-
In these days of scarce and ex|>en-
slve labor, where the harvesting of
crops can be done by animals, this
method of handling them should be
given due attention. The practice of
hogging down corn, as It is called, Is
growing in favor. Hut the present
practice can possibly be Improved
;upon. If some short variety of corn
were grown which produces ears
abundantly, and If a crop of pumpkins
were grown at the same time in the
corn, the combination should be a
good one. The corn being low of stat-
ure would not hinder the growth of
the pumpkins as tali corn would.
There Is a decided advantage In
grazing or feeding off these two to-
gether. says Orange Judd Farmer.
One advantage is, that the pumpkins
feed well along with the corn for
pigs that are being fattened, and espe-
cially along with new corn. They ex-
ercise a healthful influence on the
digestion. A second benefit Is the In-
creased nutriment obtained from an
acre by tints growing the two crops
together, and a thi.il benefit resulting
is the harvesting of the pumpkins us
well as the corn, without labor.
When growing thin crop It will pay
well to have the land well enriched.
Pumpkins, If they are to grow well,
must have a rich soil. I he yields are
usually proportionate to the high con-
dition of fertility In the land.
A Plain, Practical Talk on the Science
"It Is not what is eaten, but what
Is digested, that nourishes," is an ax-
iom of the medical doctor, and this
applies with equal force to the animals
of the farm, although many breeders
and rearers of stock display a much
greater Interest in "what to feed" than
in the question of "how to feed." One
authority says that "it Is not suffi-
cient to know that certain substances
possess great nutriment, and that oth-
are are practically useless, but it must
be known what foods are most suited
to the varying conditions of the or-
ganism. in what form these should be
administered, and to ascertain how the
best feeding can be obtained in the
most economical manner." The ar-
rangement of the digestive apparatus
of animals has an Important bearing
on their system of feeding, and what
Is right and proper for one is quite
unsuited to the other.
The small and single stomach of the
horse, Its capacious bowels, and the
absence of the gall bladder, are In
marked distinction to the enormous
stomach of the ox, the small Intes-
tines and the presence of a gall blad-
der. and thus the feeding of cattle and
sheep differs much from the feeding
of pigs from either.
The object of food Is to build up and
repair the tissues and maintain a re-
serve for the body requirements, says
the Montreal Herald, but food as re-
ceived is quite useless for the purpose
of the body, and before it can be uti-
lized it must form part of and parcel
of the animal, either in the solid or
liquid tissues. The digestibility of a
food is its power of undergoing ab-
sorption into the body for the purpose
of nutrition, and in every food given
to animals there is a distinct diges-
tion of the proteld, fat and carbohy-
drate in it. The amount of these
which are absorbed under favorable
conditions Is fairly definite, but under
unfavorable conditions, such as the
food being "badly cured," or there be-
ing too much carbohydrate present, or
too much or too little proteid in the
diet, the amount absorbed departs
from the normal, and less is extracted
or less stored up than would have been
the case had conditions been favora-
At the Waldorf the other night
Charles M. Schwab was seated with a
party of friends when he happened
for the moment to have his attention
directed to a toothpick which he held
in his hand, and remarked:
"I scarcely ever take a toothpick
without being reminded of the time
when an acquaintance of mine made
and it was a toothpick that
did the trick.
"You see," he continued, "it hap-
pened in the spring of 1904, when on
the day in question my friend was tak-
ing luncheon at this hotel, and after
he had finished and paid his check he
directed his steps toward Broadway.
He had proceeded scarcely half a
block, however, when he found him-
self greatly annoyed by a particle of
food very firmly wedged between two
of his teeth, and, finding himself with-
out a toothpick, he retraced his steps
to the hotel to get one.
"On his way out of the hotel he
chanced to pass a table at which were
seated John W. Gates and a friend,
and just as he reached the table he
heard Mr. Gates remark:
" 'I feel very positive that you will
see Steel (common) selling at 10 be-
fore the end of the summer.'
"Now, my friend did not happen to
make a regular business of trading in
the market, but knowing it was Mr.
Gates who made the remark, and also
the great weight his word carried in
such matters, lie decided to take ad-
vantage of the tip and it did not take
him long to place his order with a
broker to sell 1,000 shares of Steel
"Well, you all know what Steel did
during the summer of 1904, going
down below nine, but my friend or-
dered his trade to be closed around
10, and ho cleaned up a profit of $30,-
000, which he never would have made
had it not been for the little tooth-
pick."—N. Y. Press.

One That the Hogs Can Open Them-

Here is a plan for a hog door that
has been found very satisfactory. The
door Is made of three ordinary boards

one at the bottom. The door is made
so as to have a quarter-Inch space all
around between it and the frame. A

European Authorities Indorse the
Well-Cut Kilted Garment for
Out-of-Door Wear—Right of
Women to Dress as They
Should girls wear short skirts?
Why not? it they have the sense
to do it. Is there anything neater
and trimmer than a well-cut kilted
skirt clearing the ground by two
inches or more, and showing a pair
of high-laced boots? It is the last
thing in smartness for rainy weathei,
and never was there a fashion more
hygienic than that of the "trottolr
skirt, says an English authority.
In France, where they know how
to dress, and where economy has been
elevated to an art, no self-respecting
woman would appear outside her own
house, if there was a speck of mud
In the streets, in a dress that touched
the ground. In Germany, where one
is a housewife first and a woman alt
erwards, it would be a heart-breaking
spectacle to the neighbors if Que
sauntered out casually in the morning
in a dress that did not betoken the
stern business of catering for one s
I household by being held high from
the street by a steel arrangement
that fastened round the waist.
In Spain and Italy those women
who do not drive in carriages all
wear skirts to their ankles, and you
never see the American lady tourist
clutching a bunch of skirt in one
hand while with the other she grasps
fleldglass, handbag and umbrella. Is
England, then, the only nation that
would doom its women to sloppy un-
tidiness of costume because the mod-
esty of the men must not be shocked
by the sight of a well-turned ankle
and a pretty foot? The days have
gone by when we were asked to be
merely graceful ornaments of soci-
ety. Let us at least dress as we

The Hog House Door.
half-Inch iron rod is fastened across
the upper batten with eye bolts. This
gives the door free play to swing In
and out. The ends of the rods run
Into the door-frame on each side, and
to prevent the door from binding an
iron collar is slipped on the rod each
side of the door. It solves the prob-
lem of cold or drafty sleeping quar-
ters. says Montreal Herald. Hogs can
go In or out at will and the door Is al-
ways shut after them. If lots of air

Warming and Cooking Feeds.
In cold weather the value of warm
food is easily noticed, but the cost Is
Store than the Increased value when
compared with the Increase of the
flow of milk. Silage may be fed warm
without much additional expense, and
prove valuable. Cooking feed for
cows was strongly recommended 40
vcars ago, says Farm and Home, but
recent experiments have proved the]
fallacy of this doctrine. Cows have
jiever b*M bred up to • appreciate
warm feeds. Actual experience In
cooking feeds has shown that the un
cooked feeds proved to he more ill
gestlhle, the average Itl different feeds i
giving u loss of six per cent, by cook ■
The bull can be kept at a distance
with a stafT. and thnt Is therefuro the
safest way to lead him.
Feeding and milking the cows regu-
larly are very Important. No work
in the dairy can be more Important.
The cow must have health, vigor,
constitution and disposition beforo
she Is milked the first time. What she
really Is w ill be determined beforo she
drops her first calf.
Whether one has a herd or only one
cow, he should have something grow-
ing during the cool portion of the year
that will furnish succulence. And It
will save buying mill feeds.
If the cow Is not healthy—has gar-
got or Inflammation of the udder, or
any other sickness that Is noticeable
her inHU should be draw n Into a pall
not generally used In milking and fed
to the pigs. If used ill all.
Neither sorghum cane nor common
corn that was green when the frost

Every Little a Help.
Anybody who has visited Cornish,
Me., has heard of "1'ncle Freeman"
Hatch, as ho was called by all who
knew him, as genial and jovial an old
gentleman as ever was "squire" of a
prosperous country town.
He had a good-natured, ready wit,
and was very quick with his answers.
He operated a sawmill in the village,
and in his employ was a man named
"Sim" Parker, whose wages were al-
ways overdrawn, lie was a drawling,
shiftless sort of a man. In direct con-
trast to "Uncle Freeman."
A Saturday nlglit came and "Sim,"
fully realizing the fact that his wages
were overdrawn, yet mightily in need ;
of cash, approached "Uncle Freeman, j
and in a hesitating sort of way said,
"Uncle Freeman—could you or—er— .
let me have a little money to-night?"
Quick as a Hash came the reply—
"Yes, Siui, Just as little as you want.
Business Very Quiet.
Two tall ranchmen bought seats In
the back row In the balcony of a city
theater. One of the ushers chanced to !
be standing near them while he was |
not busy and accidentally overheard
some of their conversation. Before
the curtain rose they talked about
! various things In the theater. While
I the orchestra was preparing to play
its overture one of the ranchmen said:
I "Jim, what do you s'pose all them red
lights with 'E-xf-t' over 'em Is for?"
"I ain't sure, but 1 think I know,"
was the reply.
"Well, what your Idea?"
"That there 'Ex-l-t' Is French talk
for 'Saloon,' 1 think," said the other.
"Them doorways lead to some placo
where you can get a drink."
The one who had asked about the
exits looked at the red lights a mo-
ment. "Gosh!" he said finally, lhat
