Thinking it may be of interest and
encouragement to your readers who
are raising pigs farrowed In midwin-
ter, 1 herewith send sketch and de-
scription of hog house planned by Mr.
James P. Condon of Oak Park farm.
In this vicinity, writes Thomas O.
Boyle of Webster county, Iowa, In
Homestead. He has at the present
writing 50 little pigs born in February,
during the coldest period. They are
thriving and in fine condition, and Mr.
Condon gives the credit to the place he
I has for housing them. They show-
promise of meeting a $10 market. Last
summer, after an investigation as to
materials and proportions of hog
houses In general, he came to the con-
clusion that hollow cement blocks was
i the material he desired, and that most
I of them were too wide for sufficient
I sunlight and ventilation, bo he had
one built according to his own ideas.
He used a hollow cement block with a
water and frost-proof facing. Having
a fine sand pft on his farm he con-

Prosperous as never before, with a
larger crop than in any previous
years, the farmer has money to spend
and the farmer with money wants to
and does live every whit as well as
his city brothers and generally better.
The thing to consider is what type
of car will best meet the require-
! ments of the farmer buyer. First is
1 the question of roads. The country
I roads are not all gravel roads or
I macadamized turnpikes.
j The successful country car must be
one which will travel over inferior
roads—roads that sometimes are
heavy with mud, roads that are often
: covered 12 inches or more with new
fallen untrodden snow.
Here the first essential is light
weight. A good light weight car
should be selected. A car weighing
2,000 to 3.000 pounds Is not a prac-
tical car for all around country serv-
ice. A car weighing 1,200 pounds Is
much better suited to the average
Then, too, this light car can easily

traded with a cement concern to do
the work. They made the blocks on
the ground on an up-to-date block ma-
chine. The building is 64 feet long, 10
feet w ide and 10 feet high on the front
and 7 feet high in back. He put on a
tjiree-ply rubberold roof, which is
warmer than shingles, and guaranteed
for 15 years with a coat of paint every
three to five years. He had a cement
! feed lot put in, running the entire
| length of the building, and believes It
j is a great factor in having healthy
hogs and more sanitary than any other
kind. It also makes a fine approach,
lie has a tight board fence in front of
the feed platform, thus having a good
\ windbreak, and on sunny days their
hogshlps enjoy a sunning thereon. The
j fall and winter was a good time for the
test of the wall, and It proved both
1 water and frost proof. Part of the
; lime Mr. Condon uses sand for bed-
ding, but through the coldest weather
I it was necessary to put in straw for
the brood sows and their litters.
| The next point of Importance lies in
simplicity of design, accessibility of
j all parts and perfect standardization
; of vaiious parts. While the average
! farmer Is a much better mechanic
than is the city man, due to long use
of agricultural implements, he has no
garage to call on for repair work and
must do it all. The less complicated
the mechanism, the better suited to
the farmer's need.
Any trip—business or pleasure—
can be made in decidedly less time
with a car than with horses. In
planting, plowing or harvest times
this saving is valuable. A quick trip
to the city for repairs for a mower
or a reaper and back again in a
hurry is very important when the
grain is ripe or the grass is ready.
"Green-Eyed Monster" Invades Congress
JEALOUSY between the house and
senate has broken out in a new
1 form. This time it has nothing to do
' with procedure or legislation. It has
been discovered that Representative
Adamson of Georgia can dispose of
more food at one sitting than any
other member of the house. Senator
1 Stephen B. Elkins of West Virginia,
who stands high on the list of million
aires in the senate, has the reputation
i of being able to eat more at one meal
than most of his colleagues can get
iway with at two sittings. Mr.
Adamson is strongly backed by the
southern members of the house while
S the s°nators are willing to back Mr.
Elkins. The sporty members of con-
gress arc anxious to arrange a con-
test at which the question will be set-
tled. The plan is to have Dielt Shaw,
the caterer of the senate restaurant,
make ail the necess' "v arrangements.

Then the land will be in shape to re-

I I could get more income from a piece
of land by seeding down half of it to

fertilizer on the remaining half, than
by trying to keep the whole piece in

clover and grass, the other half would
be plowed up. On a fresh sod a good

The "dope sheets" In the possession
of senators seem to show that Mr.
Elkins is in better form than Mr.
Adamson. His best performance of
which there Is an authenticated record
was made at Hot Springs. Va., where
he went to see Mr. Taft, before the
latter became president. The morn-
ing of his arrival the senator ordered
two plates of peaches and cream, a
box of crackers and a quart of milk, a
whole chicken, broiled; half a dozen
"flannel cakes' and a large pot ol
coffee. As he left the table the sen-
lator remarked that it was strange how
