DIAMOND HAS MANY VIRTUES
But According to Superstition the
Gem Must Be a Gift to Person
Who Wears It
According to superstition (and to
fact also), the owner of a diamond
Is lucky, indeed. The diamond should
be worn upon the left side, for it is
of greater virtue there, for the
strength of its growing is toward the
North, that is the left side of the
world, and the left part of a man
when he turneth his face toward tlie
East. He who carries a diamond will
have strength and manhood; It will
keep him from harm, especially from
broken limbs. It will give him vic-
tory over all his enemies If his cause
Is righteous. It will keep him from
strife and riots, and is a talisman
against enchantments. In fact, If an
enchanter tries to work a spell upon
the possessor of a diamond he will
find It will work upon himself Instead.
No wild beast will attack the diamond
owner. It heals all manner of mental
troubles. If poison be brought near
it, the diamond will become moist and
sweat. In order to be of the greatest
virtue, the diamond must be given
freely Instead of being bought.

After practice In score-card Judging
—comparing the exhibited animal with
an ideal, for it takes a good animal
to score 75 and a choice animal to
be marked 90—one Is ready to judge
by comparing animals one with anoth-
er. Keep In mind the standard they
should approach, and appraise them
against one another, point by point,
following the sAme systematic method
as with the score card.
It is important to be able to tell
the approximate age of a sheep by the
teeth. Lambs have a full set of baby
or "milk'' teeth soon after birth. At
from twelve to fourteen months two
permanent teeth appear at the center;
two more, adjoining, at from twenty-
two to twenty-four months; a third
pair at thirty-four to thirty-six months;
and the full set at forty-six to forty-
eight months. From then on only an
estimate can be made. As the sheep
grows older the teeth gradually spread
and become shorter with wear. Still
later, sheep gradually lose their teeth.

Why should you follow

Often a cowpath has been allowed to become

tradition has made the winding way an expres-

Who cannot recall the coffee-pot Mother put
on the stovp early in the morning, warning us
not to let it toil over?
As children, we were not permitted to drink
tea or coffee, because it would stunt our growth
or make us ryrvous and irritable. When older,
however, we craved a hot drink with meals, and
custom gave u<s our tea or coffee.
Finally upon the instructions of the doctor,
Mother gave up her tea and coffee. But that
meant nothing in our young lives. Our vitality
was then strong enough to throw off any ill effects.
But our time came, and we learned by ex-
perience that we could not drink tea or coffee.
When we had it for breakfast it put our nerves
on edge. When we drank it at the evening meal,
we tossed about in wakefulness most of the night.
And then we found Postum, a pure cereal
beverage, free from the harmful drug, caffeine, in
tea and coffee. We liked the rich, satisfying flavor
of Postum—and also the better health which re-
sulted. And, too, we were surprised to find how
many of our neighbors had made the same dis-
covery— had learned the value of "health first."
Postum comes in two forms: Instant Postum (in tins)
made instantly in the cup by tha addition of boiling water.

request by the department.

J practiced eye takes in the entire con-
tour, build, and bearing. The student-

YEAST NOT GOOD
FOR LAYING HENS
Preliminary Tests by Government

(Prepared by the United States Department
Preliminary tests have been carried
on by the poultry husbandry division
of the United States Department of
Agriculture in the use of yeast as a
feed for laying hens, the theory be-
ing that this material was extremely
high in vltamines and particularly val-
uable in the dietary of laying hens.
In the initial test the yeast was dis-
solved In warm water, added to the
mash, and the mixture allowed to
stand for 24 hours until the yeast had
thoroughly permeated the feed. While
lhe liens ate this mash fairly well,
with the result that their egg produc-
tion was slightly Incneased for a short
period, apparently they soon tired of
the mixture and did not consume it
with a relish. Subsequently decreased
egg production resulted and the mor-
tality among the fowls which received
the yeast was noticeably higher than
the pens not receiving It.
It Is thought that this mortality
was due to changes occurring in the
mash which developed while It was be-
ing held in a moist condition for the
24-hour period previous to feeding,
rather than as a result of the yeast
itself. The moist mash was discon-
tinued and the experimental pens
were put on h dry mash containing
one per cent of dried fresh yeast. The
condition of the flock improved mate-
rially with this change, and the birds
soon resumed their normal appear-
ance, with fair egg production.
However, the egg yield was not
greater than that from check pens
without the yeast. Thereafter three per
cent of yeast which was air and sun-
dried and fed in a ground condition
was used in the mash without any
perceptible Increase in egg production.
These tests in the feeding of yeast
were not conducted on a very exten-
sive scale, not long enough to deter-
mine thoroughly Its value. The re-
sults were not promising and unless
some better method of feeding the
yeast Is found this product Is not
likely to be of much value for laying
