There were two, one at the house,
the other at the barn, built on a side-
hill, a favorable location.
Iloota are 00 per cent water, account-

a warm, dry place; all moisture evap-

Beet roots will stand a little frosty
spell without harm. We kept cab-

lar for convenience, being well sand
packed in large boxes, the windows
The air Is kept away, as coolness
prevents rot, sprouting and shriveling.
We found them fresh, crispy and
tasty in the spring.
The other part of the cellar was ce-
mented, of course, and we spread
some fruit on the floor, yet no earthy
taste was noticeable.
Apples kept well packed In layers,
some distance apart and sand covered.
Those In boxes were elevated a trifle
on brltks. One season we packed
apples In a barrel, with oats between
the layers and those proved a suc-
The roots for our stock were uni-
formly good, handy to feed.
Our barn-cellar was on a side-hill
excavation Into the high bank. It had
a cement wall, several feet high, and
a nice driveway on the upper side.
The roots were very easily unloaded
by a chute through a convenient, re-
movable window, which furnished
light as well.
One season we kept a quantity of
roots and apples In a pit, in the slde-
hlll—about three feet deep. We spread
straw on the bottom, filled the pit to
the top and covered all with good
straw, with dirt heaped over that, and
then a board cover, to protect the
contents from water. In February and
March they opened out, with only a
few defective specimens.

When Health is Wrong

Getting ahead in this world calls for mental and
physical forces kept upbuilt and in trim.
Often the food one eats "makes" or "breaks'*—it
depends upon the kind of food. In many cases the
daily dietary lacks certain essential elements for keep-

"There's a Season" for
No Man Who Buys Steers to Fat-
ten Can Afford to Be With-
out Huge Receptacle.
Those farmers who have never stud-
ied the silo question, naturally do not
know how much money they are los-
ing every year in their feeding opera-
tions. No man who buys steers to fat-
ten can afford to be without a silo.
It is a poor cornfield that will not
yield an average of from ten to fif-
teen tons of green corn pei acre. If
this is cut into silage it will make a
sure profit at present prices of cattle
at from $30 to $34 per acre.
It has been demonstrated conclu-
sively that silage-fed steers bring
more money on the big market than
those that are fattened on whole corn.
It is also a fact well known to expe-
rienced feeders that silage saves grain
It is true that corn fodder contains
under chemical tests more protein car-
bohydrates and fattening material than
silage, but the fact remains that
steers do not get all of the benefit
from corn fodder, while about every-
thing that is valuable is consumed in
Then silage being quite bulky, it is
an excellent feed given in connection
with ground grains and heavy meals,
as it aids greatly in their digestion.
Another thing, steers like silage. It
tastes good to them and they eat it
A steer prefers silage to dry corn
fodder, just as a boy prefers pie to
dry corn bread, but in the case of the
steer, the silage Is better food for him
than the pie is for the boy. ,
Place silage and dry corn fodder
before a bunch of steers and they will
not touch the latter until they have
entirely disposed of the first. This
is an important factor In feeding, be-
cause palatabllity adds to digestive
qualities of feed, and the more a
steer digests the more fat he will
DOES CUTTING CORN
FODDER ROB SOIL?
Few Ways of More Quickly Killing
Soil Than to Grow and Re-
move All of Crop.
There is much said now about the
value of corn fodder by those who
advocate the use of the silo. It is true
that the corn plant at maturity ex-
clusive of the ear, contains much valu-
able feed If properly harvested and
stored, says Kansas Journal.
Yet experienced ones nay that there
are few ways of more quickly killing
the soil than to grow corn and re
move all the crop by cutting the fod-
It is good farm practice to cut up
the corn and feed it on the place,
provided that land from which it ie
cut is Immediately manured to re-
store the plant-food elements taken
from it by the crop.
When no equivalent is returned the
soil is left sadly depleted of its bal-
anced chemical store of life-producing
The ear of corn, being largely starch
and composed of water and carbon
dioxide, free compounds of the atmos-
phere, does not remove much fer-
tility from the soil. But the entire
corn plant contains nitrogen, potas-
sium and phosphorus which, the soil
can ill spare.
These cornstalks should be allowed
to remain in the field and be plowed
under the following season to return
these vital elements and form soil

Everywhere the popularity of Arbuckles' Coffee is grow-
ing. From one of our branches alone sales in 1914 were
six times what they were the year before. In one state,
four pounds of Arbuckles' Coffee were sold for every
man, woman and child in the state.
Think how good a coffee must taste to be the most popu-
lar coffee in America!
American women are famous for their coffee. Americans
drink more coffee than any other nation and are known
to buy better coffee than other countries. This fact is so
well established that coffee-growing countries ship much
of their finest coffees to America.
This will give you some idea of how good a coffee must be
when for half a century it has been America'sfavorite coffee.
To know how much Arbuckles' Coffee adds to over a
million breakfasts every day—try it.
When you see the satisfaction it gives, you'll know why
over a million other women use it, why they have made
Arbuckles' by far the most popular coffee in America.
