Near-Sighted Policy of Farmer to Let
Animals Go Simply Because
Prices Are High.
Due to the scarcity of, and demand
for. all kinds of meat, the price of live
stock Is at present abnormally high.
The farmer naturally wants to sell all
he can at these figures, and It Is not tD
be wondered at that he Is sorely tempt-
ed to sell his old or breeding stock ub
well at these figures. It Is true that
they will bring a good price, yet, un-
less others as good or better are on
hand to replace them, this procedure
Is bad Indeed.
Instead of selling off breeding stock,
the opposite plan should be followed
wherever possible—the Increasing of
breeders. The American live stock In
dustry must not only b« maintained,
but It must be built up. Kill the ma-
ture stock and the Industry Is crippled.
With the breeders killed, production is
cut off und future farm profits from
these animals lost.
The breedlug animals on the farm
are essential and must be considered
as part of the peruiunent Investment.
Save these to earn future profits, and
to preserve and Insure our domestic

selection of horse collar
Close Attention Must Be Given to Pre-
vent Galls—Care of Shoulder Is
In order to prevent galls and more
serious conditions It Is not enough to
give close attention to the selection of
the collar. The shoulder of the horse
should always be washed and given
special cure when the animal Is at
steady work. If the selection of the
collar has been properly made and all
other things In regard to this piece of
harness looked after, the care of the
animal's shoulder Is a simple process.
Under these conditions washing the
shoulder with soap and pure water
after the harness has been removed
at the end of a day's work, aud thor-
ough drying the parts by rubbing it

Results Given of Experiments Con-

Considerable difference of opinion
exists among wheat growers as to the
proper depth of drilling wheat. The
Ohio agricultural experiment station
has conducted tests for five years com-
paring various depths of drilling and
broadcasting. The yield of wheat In

"A boy named Gerald," said Daddy,
"was finding It very hard to do his les-
sons. School had commenced and yet
the days were so lovely It was hard
"It was afternoon and Geruld wus
sitting on the hack porch of his home
studying, lie Uked the front porch
better as there was so much more to
be seen there. People passed by on
their way to the post office and boys
who were playing baseball or who were
going for a walk In the woods.
"But he hud known If he had sat
there he would not have been able o
say 'No,' If he had been asked to Join
a walking party.
"So very sensibly he was sitting
the back porch. In front of him was
a table and upon the table were his
books and his box of pencils.
"He could not draw a map and ne
was supposed to have one drawn for
the next day. He found It so hard to
remember just how the places looked
on the map and he was supposed to do
It from memory.
"He gave up trying the map after a
few moments. Then he sat and chewed
the end of his pencil. Perhaps In a
moment or two he would think of a
the places he was suppose to mark.
"He decided he would do his arith-
metic but he could not manage the
sums. They were all so extremely
hard. Much worse than they had been
In the spring.
"He tried to do the sums but
couldn't. What a pity the book had no
answers In the back 1 And he began to
chew the end of his pencil again while
he tried to think.
"Before long he felt he could not do
his lessons for he was too tired and

called freezone, applied directly upon
s tender, aching corn, Instantly re-
lieves soreness, and soon the entire
corn, root and all, lifts right out.
This drug dries at once and simply
shrivels up the corn or callus without
even Irritating the surrounding skin.
A small bottle of freezone obtained
at any drug store will cost very little
but will positively remove every hara

Canadian thistle and sow thistle are
hard to kill, as they have underground
stems from which new plunts are sent
up. A piece of this stem If cut off and
given the right conditions will form

eradication Is to mow the plunts, then
plow them under and disk the land as
often as new shoots appear. Keeping
the top from growing will In time kill
the roots and underground stems.

It had been n warm day and two bum-

near him. They were having some sort

end of It was wrapped up In cotton
wool and gauze.

"'1 shouldn't think you would ask
me what was the matter,' said the pen-
cil as It squeaked In a sad little voice.
"'Why not?' asked Gerald. But the
moment he had asked the question he
knew the answer.
"The pencil answered him just the
same. 'You think I am to do your
work. I will work but I must be guid-
ed and directed. I cannot think. A
pencil is not supposed to think. A boy
is supposed to do that. I merely write
down what you think Is correct, and

decided, Gerald thought, and he,
thought he would not argue with It. t

Convincing Proof of This Fact
Ridgway, Penn. — "I suffered from female
trouble with backache and pain in my side for over
seven months so I could not do any of my work. I
was treated by three different doctors and was
getting discouraged when my sister-in-law told me
how Lydia & Pinkham's Vegetable Compound had
helped her. I decided to try it, and it restored my
health, so I now do all of my housework which is
not light as I have a little boy three years old."
