A co operative undertaking Is beln*
earned out by the Wisconsin expert
Bent station and Ashland and Bayfield
counties, in the northern part of the
Htute, that in ti. bestrongly commended
from the stand| )int of Rood sense and
practical value. A quarter section of
cut over land, most of ii of the red
clay type, was Riven Jointly by the
two counties for use as a branch 05
periinent station The state will equip
und manage the farm, and a foreman
from .Hone will be in charge A in
workers of the college wb<> inny re-
quire the red clay soil in their expert
mcnts will l>e assigned plots on tin
farm in question, which is located Dent
Ashland Junction. In addition to the
strictly exiierimental work, the crops
will be so planned as to serve as 11
demonstration to nearby farmers.

easier to tell how to do the job tlmn
It Is to actually do tt However, there
are several methods that have given
good results In the line of traps good
results can be had with the cage trap,
especially If the whole rat tribe In th<
Immediate locality ean be Inveigled
Into It in a night or two The spring
or guillotine trap Is one of the best
we have tried and Is the more efTc
tive If the bait used Is tied to the
tongue of the trap. There are several
rat poisons on the market which do
the business If used according to di
rections. while an excellent, slow
working poison Is made by mixing one
part of barytes with eight or nine
parts of corn meal arid adding enough
wetting to give a stiff dough. Small
quantities of llils should Is- placed In
the runways of the rats, out of rea. Ii
of poultry or other creatures

DIRT AND DISEASE
Many of the diseases that attack
farm animals an traceable to germs
that flourish and live from year to
year in the litter in and about stables
and pens, many of which are In a do
cldedly Insanitary condition. Among
the germ life flourishing under these
conditions are likely to be those of
tuberculosis, contagious abortion, nil
I vol disease, lumpy Jaw, hog and calf
Cholera, while parasites that cause
scab, mange and itch likewise flourish
Where a stable Is In such condition it
should be given a thorough cleaning.
This should include not only brushing
down cobwebs and dust from celling
and walls and a thorough cleaning of

RATS IN THE JELLY.
A reader whose gooit wife's Jelly
cupboard has Just about been cleaned
out by rats asks the writer what he
can do to get rid of the pests Any
person who has had experience in this
matter knows that it is a good deal
many experiment stations make any
one point clear It Is that the cheapest
as well as the best beef in the world
Is produced In those sections where
both corn and alfalfa can tie grown
and where the corn crop Is put into

opinion that these fellows are in clover

SELECTING THE BULL
Importance of Using a Pure Bred Sire
In the Dairy Herd.
The skillful breeder of any kind of
stock does not need to have it pointed
out to him how Important it is that
the sire be properly selected, writes
Professor C. II Eckles in the Kansas
Farmer If he is a skillful breeder it
Is largely because he realizes the in
port 11 nee of the sire and knows how t.
•elect him. While the skilled breedet
reali7.es the importance of tli> in
breeding, the average dairyman do.-
not give the question of selection ot
the sire one tenth the attention the in.
portance of the question demands.
Thousands of men make use of a
scrub or grade sire on account of mis
taken economy in cost rather than p.i>
a few dollars more for an animal that
Is almost certain to transmit desirable
qualities. It Is not surprising that we
have so many worthless cows liny
come by their worthiness in the ma
Jority of cases from sires worse than
worthless. Some of these scrub bul -
are registered in the herd books
I am a believer In selecting a breed
that Is bred for the purpose for which
It is to be used If the farmer intends
to milk cows and make that an impor
tant part of his business he is not
working to the best advantage unless
he selects a breed that has been de
veloped with that object in view. In
purchasing the sire a good general
rule to follow is to get one wht.se fe
male ancestry is of the type that it is

Washing Milk Vessels.
It is quite a common pructlc I"
washing milk utensils to start with
hot water This Is not the best im-th
od. In boiling milk a skin forms on
It. The hot water likewise hardens
this ou to the sides of the milk vessel
making It hard to remove. Th bettet
way Is to first rinse the utensils In
cold water, and It should be rinsed <
soon as It Is emptied of milk ot else
the milk will dry. and then rinsing It
will not so thoroughly remove It
