adaptability of sheep husbandry to in-
tense soil tillage.
The time is past when sheep should
be kept as farm scavengers to utilize
the wastes, and clean up weeds and
briers. The present century is bring-
ing new tidings of encouragement to
the man who has good sheep and is
willing to atay with them and grow the
best of forage and grain crops on
purpose for them.
The best of both wool and mutton

Years of Btudy and experience have
convinced me that maximum produc-

The English flockowners have dem-
onstrated the possibility of sheep hus-

more profitable and rapid gains can be
produced upon cultivated forage, root
and grain crops than upon natural pas-
The sheep, when properly managed,
can convert farm feed into more mon-
ey than any other animal. Such farm
feeds as rape, soy beans, cow peas,
corn, barley, mangels, and turnips, can
be raised on all our farms, and when
used for sheep, produce the very best
quality of mutton.
The sheep must be as good as the
land, for to keep poor sheep on good
land means failure.
BULLETIN ON FEEDING MULES COTTON LEAF-LOUSE ENEMY
Animals Given Corn and Mixed Hay
Maintained Weight Better Than
Those Fed OaU and Hay.
The following bulletin from the ex-
periment station, Columbia, Mo., may
be of interest to our readers: "Corn
versus Oats for Work Mules," by E. A.
Trowbridge, Bulletin No. 114. The fol-
lowing is the summary of the bulletin
given by the author:
The work herein reported extends
over a period of two years. It con-
tains data on four mules for that time.
Although the number of animals
used was not large, the lots were so

The mules which received corn and
mixed hay maintained their weight
slightly better than did the mules fed

The mules receiving corn and hay
endured hard work in hot weather as
well as did those receiving oatB and
No difference in spirit could be de-
tected in the different lots of mules.
Mature mules required 3 per cent
more grain and 1.4 per cent more hay
to approximately maintain live weight
when fed oats and mixed hay than

The mules receiving corn and mixed
hay did 6 per cent more work when

oats and hay.
No abnormal effect could be noticed
in any of the mules receiving either

test were maintained 28 per cent more

Convergent Lady-Beetles Are Friends
of Farmer for Reason They De-
vour the Plant Lice.
(By F. SHERMAN. JR.)
In those sections of the United
States where cotton is grown, and the
leaf-louse is sometimes a serious pest
the farmer will notice on louse-in
fested cotton a yellowish beetle with
black spots. These beetles are about
a fourth of an inch long, and crawl
about among the louse-Infested leaves.
These are known as lady-beetles, and
the one most commonly found is the
It has been thought, by many farm'
ers, that theBe lady-beetles are the
parents of the leaf-louse, but in to-
allty they are enemies to the louse
(and are therefore, friends of the far
mer), for the reason that they feed
on the lice.
There are a number of other in-
sects which help to keep down the
cotton-louse, such as lace-wing flies
and syrphus flies. On the other hand,

" 'Yes,' replied the boy, 'take the
first road to your right.'
"Instead of proceeding on his jour-

Mrs. Smith's four Bons made the life
of her old colored servant a burden.
One day Uncle Andy was busy in the
garden hoeing corn, and for half an
hour Tom, the most mischievous of the
quartet, had amused himself throwing
clods of dirt at him. At last Andy
threw down his hoe and stamped indig-
nantly down to the house.

INCUBATOR DOES GOOD WORK
If Run Properly, Machine Will Give
Almost as Good Percentage of
Strong Chicks as Hens.
While It must be remembered that
no incubator is able to do as good work
as the hen, yet in hatching large quan-
tities of eggs it would be too expensive
to rely entirely on hens. A machine

and if run properly the machine will
give almost as good a percentage of
strong chicks as will the hens. But
much depends upon the man in charge.
Hens, too, cannot always be relied up-
on. At times they give up the notion
of setting in the midst of a hatch;
some are restless and break up the
eggs and many more things are apt to
go wrong at a critical time. Both hens
and incubatorB need watching.
ECZEMA ON CHILD'S FACE
Marpleton, W. Va.—"When my little
boy was one year old he broke out in
little fine pimples all over his face.
At times they would dry up and get
scaly and peel off, then they would
break out fresh again. He would
■cratch them until his face would be
raw. The eczema looked angry and
ran blood and corruption. His face
was red and disfigured. He seemed
restless and I had to be up with him
the greater part of the nights.
"I applied various remedies without
result. He continued to break out
with the eczema until I sent for some
Cuticura Soap and Ointment. I used
them and the first application eased
him. In ten days he was completely
cured." (Signed) Mrs. Lizzie Mollo-

Raise More Sheep.
The number of sheep kept on farms
and ranches Is increasing we are told,
and yet there are many farms and
ranches without them where sheep
could be kept profitably. Those who
would use mutton are sometimes un-
able to get It at the markets in some
, cities because the animals cannot be
! had. Ab it is, wool growers get good
j prices for their fleeces and for their
mutton, but not enough people are
benefited by tnesc high prices. More
sheep ought to be raised on our small
farms; every farmer w:ith a few acres
in pasture should have a few sheep.
