Panned Out All Right.
A silo cjpi be refilled when
only partly empty without any
loss of ensilage where the old
and the new come together. J.
M. Simmons gives us this infor-
mation. On the 20th of this
month he finished feeding out
the shock kafir ensilage with
which he refilled his silo the
first, of January, and found the
old ensilage beneath it just as
sweet and as fine as the day he
refilled, and the stock eat it just
the same as before.
He also says his experience
with ensilage made of dry kafir
is fully satisfactory and his cat-
tle have done expectionally well
on it, but that if lie ever uses
kafir again, after being shocked,
the grain will be removed and
threshed and only the fodder put
into the silo, with an abundance
of water. His belief is that more
profit can be made out of the
grain by threshing and grinding
it and then feed it along with en-
silage than to let the whole grain
go into the silo, for it is a fact
that the greater part of kafir
grain, when fed to anything but
pigs, remains whole until it rots
in the manure pile.—Manchester
Incubator Egg Hatching.
There are several different
makes of incubators on the mar-
ket but they are all under t vo
distinct systems, the hot water
rnd the hot air system.
How to successfully run a hot
water incubator: When first pur-
chasing an incubator see that it
is well mad« and is equipped
with pipes for the water. Next
start the machine to running
and let it run for three or four
days to get the heat regulated
so that it runs from 100 to 106
degrees,- then put in the eggs.
The eggs will cool it down a
little which will make no differ-
ence. Keep it as near 103 degrees
as possible turning the eggs every
day except the first four or five
days, when they should be left
alone. It will do no harm for
the thermometer to register as
109 degrees for the last feAV days
of incubation. When moisture
is to be added never sprinkle
the eggs as it is liable to destroy
the chicks by chilling them. Use
a small pot or jar, and hang it
up to the top in the center of
the incubator and let it evapor-
ate as the eggs need it, and they
will need more as the heat rises.
Some people think when they
do not have good luck with their
hatching that it is the fault of
the incubator, when nine times
out of ten it is the fault of the
hens. If your hens are allowed
to run about the hog pen they
are very liable to get too fat,
which will lower the vitality of
the chick. So when it comes to
the hatching they are so weak
that they are unable to pick the
shell. There is also trouble with
the eggs having too hard a shell,
which is caused by too much
lime in the foods they eat. An-
other fault of the owner's is not
supplying enough grit, fresh
water and plenty of exercise
which is the most important
thing to be considered.

man. J. R. Roberts Jr.
