WINTER CARE OF SHEEP OF IMPORTANCE
(By HOW A HI) HACKEDORN. Missouri
College of Agriculture.)
The winter care of the flock Is Just
as important as the careful cultiva-
tion of the corn crop. This is the
growing season of the lamb crop to be
harvested In the spring.
The condition or the umount of flesh
the ewes are carrying must guide the
feeder. Ewes in good condition need
not be fed grain until about a month
before lambing, when they should grad-
ually be accustomed to grain. Ewes
in thin or poor condition should re-
ceive from one-fourth to one-half
a pound of grain a day. Straight corn
The sheep should receive as much
clover or alfalfa hay as they will eat. j
The amount of hay eaten can be cut I
down by use of corn silage or corn !
stover. Two pounds of clean, sweet i
corn silage can be used to replace !
about one pound of hay. \Cell-cure<l
corn stover is also relished by the j
ewes. Ordinarily there is little dan- j
ger of the sheep eating too much of it
If hay Is fed once a day. The great- |
est danger of corn stover comes from !
making it the exclusive feed. Under
this condition, compaction with other i
attendant troubles will often result.

ERADICATION OF EAR TICKS BIG PEANUT YIELD IN TEXAS
Common Pest Among Horses and
Cattle in Southwest—Oil Will
Destroy the Parasites.
(By R. H. WILLIAMS. Animal Hus-
bandry, University of Arizona.)
Eur ticks are very common among
horses, cattle and even men In the
Southwest. Probably half of the cat-
tle and horses In the state are affected
with ear ticks. No doubt serious re-
sults often attend these parasites, as
they are most annoying. The eggs are
laid on the ear drum and are fas-
tened with a flue thread-like root.
When the eggs hatch the young will
become active and may even reach the
Almost any oil will kill the ticks if
It reaches them. Sweet oil or cotton-
seed oil will force the ticks to leave.
Sometimes they stay near and may re-
turn. It is reported that a 10 per cent
solution of curbollzed oil will kill the
ticks, keep the eggs from hatching and
not injure the animal. Such a prep-
aration should be kept in a bottle
where it could be used whenever the
animals were seen to twist their heads
on one side, drop their ears or show
other indications of ear ticks. One
can dig out the ticks with ills lingers
or a small spoon, and as many as a
score of ticks may be found in one
ear, some of them as large as peas.
Another good mixture for placing In
the ear to kill the insects is one ounce
of camphor, one ounce of phenol crys-
tals, six ounces of ol. racina. This
should he mixed thoroughly and a lit-
tle of It poured Into the affected ears.
342.000.000 Bushels Wheat in
1915; In 1916 Many Farm-
ers Paid for Their Land
Out of Their Crop.
That Western Canada Is indeed
"Mistress of Wheat" to tlie extent that
Its 1015 crop exceeded, acre for acre,
the production of any country on 'his
continent is a striking fact proved by
the following figures:
In 1915 the Dominion of Canada pro-
duced 876,000,000 bushels of wheat,
which represented an average yield of
20 bushels to the acre. The United
States produced 1,011,505,000 bushels,
yield of 17 bushels per acre. The only
serious competitors in wheat produc-
tion in South America were Argentine,
with 178,221,000 bushels, or less than
12 bushels per acre, and Chile, with
10,000,000 bushels or 115 bushels per
The three Western Canadian prairie
provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan
nnd Alberta produced between them
842,000,000 bushels out of the total Ca-
nadian .'170,000,000 bushels. It will be
seen, therefore, that, outside of the
United States, Western Canada pro-
duced considerably more than the com-
bined production of North and South
America. Canada is of course a new-
settled country, and the fact that the
crop of the Uuited States v as practi-
cally three times ns much is no dis-
couragement. The United States has
at present more than twelve times the
population of Canada in approximately
the same area.
To illustrate further the greater pro-
ductiveness of Western Canadian land,
we submit the following figures, show-
ing the 1915 yields per acre in the
three provinces of Western Canada
and in the states which in that year
produced the greatest quantity of
wheat. The figures are taken from the
U. S. department of agriculture's au-
nual report and from the figures of the
Dominion census bureau:
talncd at, on the average, from $20 to
$30 per acre, with Irrigated lands some-
| what higher. It is no exaggeration
whatever to say that a number of
Western Canadian farmers have paid
for their land entirely from the pro-
ceeds of last year's crop, and this in-
cludes men who lust year began for the

The peanut yield is exceeding all
records. Texas alone is expected to
yield 21,000,000 bushels. Consider, if
you can, how far 21,000,000 bushels of
peanuts will go toward satisfying the
hunger for this product of the soil,
und then reflect that Virginia and
other southern states are to be heard
Of course there is nothing to show
thut some unexplained and mysteri-
ous cause may not lead to an Inflation

shortage in the contents. They seem

GETTING PURE COTTON SEED
Best Results Obtained by Ginning Very

Rush Is Over.
Cotton growers who wish to main-

tain best results either by ginning very
early in the season or after the rush
of the season Is over, when the gin-
ner can take greater care.
It Is practically Impossible to main-
tain the purity of seed without (he co-
operation of the ginner, and It Is un-
reasonable to ask him to delay his
regular ginning work aud keep other
j patrons waiting.

In 1916 the crop was not as heavy,
but the yields in many districts were
very large. So large, indeed, was the
acreage under cultivation In 1915 that
the resulting crop proved too large to
be all threshed the same fall. It over-
loaded railroads, and made marketing
slow. A less amount of fall plowing
was done than would have been done
In a less heavy year, because the aver-
age farmer was too busy with his
threshing. All these conditions neces-
sarily reacted upon the acreage
seeded In the spring of 1916. Add to
this that labor last year, owing to the
great number of Canadians who have
enlisted, was scarce nnd high-priced,
and one factor in the decreased yield—
