FOOT OF THE HORSE.
Disease and Deformities Prevented by
Early Attention to Young Stock.
Most owLers of large breeding es-
tablishments of racing stock are fully
■Live to tbfe Importance of supplying
conditions under which the feet of
their young stock shall have every
chance of proper development, pad-
docks of sound turf or dry porous
•ubsoil, well shaded and well watered
With careful housing in roomy, loose
boxes, on comfortable dry straw beds,
surroundings are provided under which
nature seldom fails to supply this val-
uable stock with such feet as in all
probability will never, unless after-
ward abused, give the animals or their
owners any cause of trouble. 1 find
with many small breeders the last con-
sideration very frujuently is the con-
dition and care of the feet of their
young horses, says W. R. Gilbert.
Many times I have seen promising
two and three year olds with ragged,
«plit feet and growing into all shapes
but the right one when the most sim-
ple early attention would have pre-
vented disease or deformity.
Instances are easily forthcoming as
io the influence of surrounding condi-
tions upon foot development. Place
two foals at birth under quite opposite
conditions, each having good feet. Tie
Working the Brood Mare.
A knowledge of just what is right
and safe to do with a working brood
mare will prevent some little mistake
which perhaps may have serious con-
sequences and will enable one to make
the best possible use of her time.
While a mare may safely be worked
hard and steadily from the day she is
bred until the day she drops her foal,
she should be kept clear of excessively
hard pulls and strains, such as are
, apt to occur in hauling grain on the
! road in a hilly country, working with
smooth shoes or none at all when the
1 roads are Icy and hauling feed and
manure through muddy fields and feed
lots in the early spring.
| Careful hauling on the road and
j steady work in the field, putting in
I crops and tending them are very safe
for the mare. I have used mares at
spring plowing up to the day their
foals were dropped, says a horseman.
Winter butter sells at a fancy price,
but not wbep the milk and cream are
allowed to collect kitchen and cellar
Too much cream for the calf Is about
as bad as too much money for the boy.
Milk cows should be groomed not
more than one hour before milking
A stiff brush should be used to re-
move dry matter and places soiled
with fresh manure cleaned by wash-
Take the milk to the house directly
after you are through milking. You
cannot afford to run the risk of losing
or getting filth into the food you have
received from your cows.

«re seldom or never on firm ground;
the other upon dry uplands. From
the meadows you have soft, flat, weak
feet, while upon the uplands they have
grown a good shape, tough and en-
durable in texture.

cleanliness and occasional dressing

Mangers Too High and Deep.
If horses could speak there would be
a genera! outcry against the mangers
in use, says the Farm Journal. Most
of them are set too high and are too
deep, besides being tight on the bot-
tom instead of slatted to let the dust
and hay seed through. Dust Is one of
the horse's worst enemies and often
injures his breathing apparatus, caus-
ing him misery for life. Every man-
ger should have a hayrack in front of
It, and this should have a slatted bot-
tom. The horse that gets his hay in
this manner, pulling it through a rack
level with the manger, will not breathe
dust and will not have dust in his

could make clothes
expressly for you here at home, but
a local tailor shop today is impractical
It has no labor market from which to se*.u.d
desirable cutters and tailors —
It cannot afford to install a modern plant
designed to reduce cost of production —
It doesn't do sufficient business to enable it
to buy woolens direct from the mills —
It cannot keep abreast of metropolitan sty! -
Therefore, we send our orders
for fine made-to-measure clothes to
Ed. V. Price & Co., of Chicago.
We can take your measure the
same way we would if running s' ps
here, and furnish you your dcL ;,
made as you want them, at 50 o let's
than we could make them iocaiiy.
Won't you call today?
