Floor of Structure Intended for Ac-

(By w R GILBERT.)
Stnce the introduction of Portland
cement concrete as a floor-laying ma-
terial there hu been no excuse for un-
comfortable and Inefficient floors at
the homestead. To be efficient, the
floor of a house intended for the ac-
commodation of live stock must to as
treat a degree as possible be both im-
permeable and non-absorbent If it be
neither. It will be liable to become of-
fensive Itself, and will lead to the

Here again, concrete comes to the
front on account of the regularity and

give them in that material A con

Limitations of Concrete.
But while concrete is eminently well
adapted for flooring the parts of farm
buildings that are liabel to be soiled
by the tied-up animals, it is not so well
suited for their stalls or lairs It is all
right as regards smoothness, but it
seems to be too cold for both cows
and pigs to lie upon unless abund-
ance of bedding or litter is at the dis-
posal of the attendants. When heavy
horses come It is hardly durable
enough. the pounding of their iron-
bound heels are too much for concrete.
The passages and channels of '.he
three places we started with can have
no better flooring medium than con-
crete, but something a little warmer
and less unyielding is required for
both cows and pigs to lie upon. Horses
might be left to take advantage of lt
smoothness were it more durable
against their heels, because they usu-
ally have more bedding afforded them
and they have less time to lie down.
Makes a very suitable floor for the
cow's stall, and it answers equally
well for the pig's bed Well shaped
building bricks laid on a bed of lime
or cement serve the purpose admira-
bly The cows can never soil their
stall floors, provided the building is
arranged to meet their requirements;
neither do the bigs mess their sleep-
ing place provided it is kept clear of
the rest of the floor space At this
rate there is not much likelihood of
the soil beneath the brick pavement
ever getting contaminated by excretal
matter, even when the bricks are sim-
ply bedded on sand or ashes and are
not grouted But when bedded on
lime and grouted with cement, a firm,

moisture cannot pass down through it,
nor can ground damp pass up. It can
be worked into forms required in such
places, and it wears well. A further
advantage Is its comparative cheap-

EGGS EXTREMELY NUTRITIOUS
Contain All the Elements Required for
Building Up and Support of the
Hens' eggs contain 50 per cent
water, 16 per cent, protein, 33 per
Ducks' eggs, 4o per cent, water, 17
per cent, protein, 36 per cent. fat.
Goose eggs. 44 per cent water, 19
per cent, protein, 36 per cent. fat.
Turkeys' eggs, 48 per cent water,
18 per cent, protein, 33 per cent. fat.
Protein, as is generally known, is
the substance that goes to make mus-
cle and blood. Fat. of course, is fuel
for running the body-machine Thus,
It will be seen, eggs, though half or
nearly half water, are extremely
nutritious, containing all the elements
required for the building up and sup-
port of the human body.
Dairy Calf Often Overlooked.
Many dairymen and farmers fail to
appreciate the great importance of
spending thought and feed in the de-
velopment of the dairy calf during
the first six months of its life.
CHARACTER IN CHRISTMAS
Nothing so clearly indicates the
character of the Christmas gift as
the manner in which it is prepared.
'J'lie carelessl) wrapped package de-
note? caiele.-srif.-B on the part of the
donor. The nicely wrapped pack-
age, with tasteful seals, tags and ad-
dress cards, denotes good taste on
the donor's part and shows genuine
sentiment in the gift. The prepara-
tion of the Christmas package today
has become almost a tine art, and
the means of making it attractive
are within the reach of all. For
the benefit of our subscribers we have
obtained a limited supply of Chris'j
mas packages, of which we will give
them the advantage. Each pack-
contains an assortment of
pieces, beautifully designed and
, ,lured, on fine stock, and comprises
aid?, reals, stamps, tags, post cards
,in«l -tickers. We give this package
free with a year's subscription to

in mind that we must have their

Tuesday afternoon of each week
to insure publication in the issue

of this sort will respond to a swilling
with water as readily as the parts of
the floor in concrete do.
Something harder than brick Is of
course required for the stable stall.
Causes of Stomach Troubles.

| berlain's Tablets and you will soon be

Avoid Sedative Cough Medicines.
If you want to contribute directly to
the occurrence of capillary bronchitis
ami pneumonia use cough medicines that
contain codine, morphine, heroin and
other sedatives when you have a cough
or cold. An expectorant like Cham'.ier-
liin's Cough Remedy is what is needed.
It cleans out the culture beds or breed-
ing places for the germs of pneumonia
and other germ diseases. That is why
pneumonia never results from a cold
when Chamberlain s Cough Remedy is
used. It has a world-wide reputation for
.ts cures. It contains no morphine or
otner sedative. For sale by all dealers.
A subscription to the Record
is as good an investment as you
can make for a dollar.
