FEEDING IS IMPORTANT AS
PRINCIPAL SOURCE OF PROFIT
Farmar Now Provides Live Stock WUh Canned Green Fodder,
Called “Sflage," Made Most Commonly From Corn,
Cow-Peas, Clover, or Alfalfa. Chopped
Fine and Stored In Silos.
dubaad Tell* Story of Mrs.
Guthrie’s Long Illness and Is
Glad She Is Relieved.
Solid Mooern Concrete Sirs'.
The principal source of profit In
dairying, stock-raising and farming
lies In Improving the quality and at
the same time keeping down the cost
of production. In this matter of protlt
and loss nothing plays such an Im-
portant part as the question of feeds
and feeding. The natural feed for ani-
mals, the one on which they do best,
la green pasture. In climates subject
to frost, man has made the same pro-
vision for animals as for himself by
providing them In winter with canned
green fodder called “silage." Silage Is
made most commonly from corn, cow
peas, clover, sorghum, or alfalfa, mere-
ly chopped fine and stored In large
water-tight cans known as "silos.’’ In
dry weather or In winter, when green
pasture cannot be had, this feed is
equally good in producing a flow of
milk or in putting fat on animals. One
acre of a crop harvested as silage will
feed twice as much stock as the same
amount harvested in any other man-
Like a glass fruit jar, a silo must be
water-tight and jointless to keep the
allage from molding or “dry firing."
For this reason, and also because no
painting or repairing Is ever neces-
sary, solid-wall concrete silos are
coming Into general use.
The best silos are built circular In
Shape. The size depends upon how
many animals are to be fed daily, the
quantity In pounds for each animal s
dally feed, and the number of days it
may be necessary to feed them. The
silo Bhould be of such size that a layer
of silage at least two inches In depth
will be removed each day after feed-
ing has begun. This prevents a thin
top layer from molding. A dairy cow
requires about forty pounds of silage
per day, 'and the following table is
based on this amount. Forty pounds
is also the average weight of a cubic
foot of silage.
Locate the silo where It will be con-
venient for feeding. Usually It is
joined to the barn by means of a
chute and passageway with doors
Since the silo and its contents are
heavy. It must be built on solid
ground. The bottom of the foundation
should go below frost line. The silo
may, with advantage, extend four to
five feet Into the ground. Dig the pit
large enough to allow for the thick-
ness of tho circular wallB and a foot-
ing two feet wide.
In order to save lumber the con-
crete Is poured Into forms which can
be moved up as the concrete sets or
becomes hard. These movable forms
consist of two circular shells three to
four feet high, so made that one fits
within the other with space between
for a six-inch wall. The horizontal
framework consists of 2 by 4 inch Um-
bels cut to a circle, which are cov-
ered with sheet metal or wooden lag-
ging. Each piece must be long
enough to provide for a six-foot three-
inch length of the circumference of
the circle as well as several Inches for
the lap or strap joints. The forms are
raised by loosening them at the joints
and setting them up again on the fin-
ished section of the silo.
Concrete for siLes should be rich In
Portland cement and should be put
into the forms mushy wet. Mix It one
part cement to two parts sand to four
parts crushed rock. Four parts of
clean pit or bank-run gravel may be
used Instead of the sand and rock.
Measure all materials on the basis
that one bag of cement equals one
cubic foot. Many persons raise the
concrete In buckets, but the work can
be done more quickly and easily by
using a horse together with a der-
rick or a well braced Jib-boom fixed to
an adjoining building.
The first cost of concrete silos may
or may not be greater than that of the
best of any other kind. The time Is
now at hand when farmers, like rail-
roads and corporations, are consider-
ing the lasting qualities of buildings.
Concrete silos need no insurance;
they do not blow down or burn up.
They never have to be painted or re-
paired. With other kinds of silos dur-
ing their short lives these expenses
alone equal the first cost. Concrete
HANDY ON FARM
Scoop Detachably Connected and
Has Grooves for Tines—
A combination implement that li
handy for farm and atable use baa
been designed by a man In the state
Of Washington. It Is a fork and shovel
combined, and lta advantage la that it
tak.es up no more room than one of
these tools and enn quickly be turned
from one Into the other The baste
implement ts a fork, and the shovel
portion is adjustably connected. In
the head of the acoop arc hole*
through which’ the tines of the fork
pass when the scoop is to be attached,
and across the bottom ts a metal strip
with a series of longitudinal grooves,
through which the tines also pass and
which serves to hold the shovel firmly
In position. The usefulness of such
a tool can readily be understood. In
a case where a man has both shovel-
ing and forking to do, as around a
barnyard, he can accomplish the work
by a quick transformation of thia de-
vice instead of having to go and get
a different implement every once In a
The removal of weed cowa from the
herd is doing more for the dairy busi-
ness than perhnpa any other one
thing. Bo profitable has this line of
dairy work proved that many dairy-
men who were about ready to abandon
the dairy business have taken a fresh
start But the mere removal of weed
cows Is not enough. Their places
must be taken by better ones. These
are easily secured by using pure-bred
sires of known milk producing strains
Records show that this line of work is
also profitable. More and more dairy-
men annually are adopting It. Some
men themselves do the work of weed
lng and breeding; others rely upon
cow-testing associations. These as-
sociations cost little and pay well as
Wants Bureau of Inspection.
The Kansas department of agrlcul
ture wants to establish a bureau to
Inspect grain feed, seed and bay with
the purpose of raising the standard
on theta commodities. Chicago and
St Louis already have such bureau*.
Beaufort, N. C.—Mr. Luther Guthrie
writes as follows; "My wife suffered
with horrible headaches for ten years,
and I spent Three Hundred Dollars
for doctor bills for her, but nothing;
did her any good.
1 had read about Cardul for years
back, but never tried It, until last Oc-
tober, when I decided to get it for my
Now she has taken two bottles, and
It has done her two thousand dollars
worth Af good.
She is entirely well, and has not
had another attack of headache since
she commenced to take Cardul.
Just as long as the medicine is
made, I shall have Cardul In my home.
1 can't praise It half enough.’’
Cardul has cured sick women, after,
other medicines have failed. It Is
made of ingredients that act specifical-
ly on the womanly constitution. It Is
not a cure all. It Is a medicine for
women, and only for women.
For more than 50 years, It has been
In widely extended use, by women of
all ages, and has given perfect satis-
faction, as a remedy for rebuilding
womanly health and strength.

HANDS BURNED LIKE FIRE
"I can truthfully say Cutlcura Rem-
edies have cured mo of four long
years of eczema. About four years
ago I noticed some little pimples
coming on my little finger, and not
giving It any attention, It soon became
worse and spread all over my bands.
If I would have them In water for a
long time, they would burn like fire
and large cracks would come. I could
lay a pin in them. After using all
the salves I could think of. I went to
three different doctors, but all did j
me no good. The only relief I got was
"So after hearing so much about the
wonderful Cuticura Remedies, I pur- j
chased one complete set, and after
using them three days my hands were I
much better. Today my hands are
entirely well, one set being all I used.” j

Not All Smoked.
L. White Busbey, secretary to for-
mer Speaker Cannon, was explaining
that the speaker did not smoke so
much as people thought he did.
“My understanding,” suggested one
of the party, "is that he gets away
with about 20 cigars a day."
“Oh, well,” said Busbey, "but he
eats half of ’em."—Sunday Magazine.
