Cost Only a Trifle Compared to Pos-
sible Benefit to Be Derived—“Ye
Happy Fields, Unknown to Noise and
Strife, The Kind Rewarders of In-
dustrial Life"—John Gay.
• There are thousands today looking
for farms to buy, and with the hun-
dreds of thousands of acres offered for
sale, there is no lack of opportunities.
But there are all classes of lands, good,
bad, and indifferent, much of each.
The government of the Dominion of
Canada has no land for sale, but with-
in the boundaries of the Dominion
there are unlimited acres of choice
land owned by railway and land com-
panies and private individuals. It
holds no brief for any, nor are nny
of them clients. But it is to the in-
terest of the Dominion to have the hun-
dreds of thousands of acres placed un-
der cultivation, for every acre thus cul-
tivated adds to the revenue which helps
pay the government of the country. It
is with the purpose of setting fortli
the agricultural advantages that Can-
ada, especially Western Canada, pos-
sesses, that attention is drawn to tire
fact. The purpose is to place before
the reader truthful statements, and
advise Hie prospective settler as to
the necessity to investigate and in-
spect, leaving to his own deduction the
matter of his selection. Once he de-
cides, the government will render him
any further information necessary as
to location, prices and value of land,
and assist him iu every way possible to
Tiie cost of a trip to Western Can-
ada, to any portion of the three prov-
inces—Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta—specially indicated in this
work, is but a trifle compared with the
benefits that a personal inspection may
give. Therefore the advice is to do
so. Low rates on railways will be ar-
ranged and every opportunity afforded
for giving the country a thorough and
careful examination. It may be that
you wish an improved farm,, all ready
for occupation and cultivation; you
may want raw prairie, which only re-
quires plowing and the other prepara-
tion necessary for a seed bed, leaving
it to yourself to erect your buildings,
sink your well, prepare your garden,
and ascertain how close you are to
school, church, town and market. You
may wish lo go into mixed farming,
v^nhinlng the raising of stock with the
‘ — /owing of grain. In this case you
will look out for some shelter from
sun, wind and storm, and want a farm
a portion of which may be cultivated
for grain, and pasture fields connected
with it. You may mnke this out of the
aK-ripen level prairie, but you will do bet-
\ ter to secure a partially wooded lot,
where water and pasture are already
at hand. You may wish to go into the
raising of cattle, or sheep alone; then
you will care less for the open prairie,
but select something that may cost you
less in the more northerly districts.
No matter what you may want, unless
it be land upon which to grow cotton,
bananas or other tropical or semi-trop-
ical products, your Inspection trip will
reveal to you that Western Canada pos-
sesses possibilities beyond which any
literature you may read advises you.—

Some of the Ways the Unite i
States Safeguards the
LOOK FOR INSPECTION TAG
Products Containing Meat as Well as
Cuts Must Pass Inspection—
Many Women Now Being
Used as Meat Inspectors.
The up-to-date housewife is no long-
er ignornnt or Indifferent to the neees-^
slty of buying clean and wholesome
food for her family. Few realize, how-
ever, to what extent the efforts of our
government have been responsible for
the bulk of the foods sold today being
clear and untainted. With many foods,
particularly meat, there formerly was
no way of ascertaining whether they
were free from disease and dirt. One
could only trust and hope as to their
Look for the inspection Brand.
All tills lias changed with meat since
1000, when the meat inspection act
went into effect. There Is still un-
inspected meat on the market, but the
United States government, through the
department of agriculture, has made It
possible for you to buy, if you choose,
that which was clean and free from
disease and decomposition, when it
left the packing house. There is no
involved method in getting this kind
of meat. All that is necessary is to
make sure thnt the blue Inspection
brand—“U. S. Inspd. & Psd”—is
stamped on the carcass from which
your cut is taken. This federnl in-
spection, under the bureau of animal
Industry, is carried on only in pack-
ing houses which have an interstate
or foreign trade. Some states and
municipalities also require meat In-
spection in their packing houses.
The brand which is shown In the
illustration is a guarantee that the
meat Is wholesome and that- the car-
cass was handled in a cleanly manner.
In the case of meat products the In-
spection legend on the label insures
that no harmful dyes, preservatives,
chemicals or deleterious substances
were used—all points of much Interest
to the housewife.
As there is no practical method of
microscopic inspection which is even
approximately effective for tiie detec-
tion of trichinae, it is not safe to eat
pork which has not been cooked well,
and so the government advises that ail
pork should be well cooked, otherwise
it may cause disease known as triehl-
nesis. Few In this country eat it in
an uncooked form, but for the pork
products which may be eaten uncooked
by consumers who are ignorant or
careless of the dangers of die raw
product, the government requires offi-
cial establishments to subject all such
pork products to processes which de-
stroy the trichinae.
The canned meats put out by the
packing companies having an inter-
state or foreign trade are also in-
spected, and if Mrs. Housewife will
take the time to read the labels on
those inspected cans, she will find It
well worth her while. Printed on them
are just what the product is nnd the
exact weight. In the instance of fat,
if the price per pound has been ascer-
tained beforehand, she can tell by the
label whether she has bought and paid
for a full two pounds, or whether the
can lacks a few ounces. The label
tells the story.
Make Over Old Clothes.
Thrift is the watchword of the na-
tion this year, and one of the most
practical ways hi which this campaign
is being forwarded is work for the con-
servation of clothes being done hy
home demonstration agents of the
United States department of agricul-
ture. Economical persons always have
made over material which had wear
left in it, but many who could hardly
afford It have bought new garments in
the past because of their lack of
knowledge of how to remodel old ones.
Home demonstration agents of the
department of agriculture and the
state agricultural colleges do not in-
tend thnt this shall be the excuse with
any In their districts who have old
material which Is worth remodeling.
At Lincoln, Neb., the mayor donated
space in the city hall for the work in
remodeling clothes. This room is un-
der the supervision of the home dem-
onstration agent nnd her assistants.
When their work takes them else-
where, it is In charge of trained volun-
teers. Posters advertising this work
are being used extensively.
Long tables made from hoards and
sawhorses are used to spread the gar-
ments on. Good patterns nnd some at-
tractive tnnde-over garments to serve
as models are at hand, and ad-
vice is given on how to put to new
uses nny garments thnt are brought In.

Poultryman Should Provide Bulk and
Payability in Daily Diet—Ground
Grains and Beef Scrap in
There is no best feed or combina-
tion of feeds for poultry, but results
in good yields depend almost as much
upon the ability of the feeder and the
methods of feeding as on tiie kinds of
grains, say poultry specialists of the
United States department of agricul-
ture. The practical application of sci-
ence iu poultry feeding, they add, is
to know about what proportion of pro-
tein, carbohydrates and fats gives good
feeding results und then to use rough-
ly this relative proportion in making
feeds according to their price and
availability. Mineral mutter, bulk and
puLutubility, and in winter u green
feed, are necessary la the ration to
give good results.
The simplest feed mixtures nud
home-grown grains should usually he
selected, the rations varying with
changes in the market price of the
grains. It is udvisnble for most poul-
try raisers to mix their own feeds, as
in this way they can control the pro-
portion of tiie various Ingredients and
obtain tiie precise mixture that they
desire. If, however, one desires to
purchase prepared feeds, information
concerning tiie different commercial
articles may usually be secured from
tiie state experiment station. Most ex-
periment stations will analyze poul-
try feeds and report on the different
commercial preparations sold by deal-
ers in their states.
Five Classes of Feeds.
Poultry feeds may be divided for
convenience into live general classes:
First, grains, both whole and cracked;
second, ground grains, fed in the form
of n mash; third, meat feeds; fourth,
mineral feeds; and fifth, green feeds.
Corn, cracked corn, wheat and wheat
screenings, outs, barley, rye, nnd buck-
wheat are tiie principal grains, while
of the ground feeds there nre corn-
meal and corn chop, corn and cob meal,
wheat bran, middlings, shorts and low-
grade flour, oatmeal, oat flour and
ground or crushed onts, and mixed
feeds. In the meat feeds, or feeds sup-
plying animal protein, are beef scrap,
fish scrap, meat meal, ground green
bone, and various forms of milk; while
bone meal, dry bone, oyster shells, und
grit make itp the mineral feeds and,
with charcoal nnd green feeds, com-
plete the common feeding materials.
Mnny ground feeds, which are by-
products of the common grains, are
used to good advantage in feeding, In
comldnation with grain and beef scrap.
Ground grains and meat feeds aro
more forcing than the whole grains
commonly used, while the combination
of the whole grains with the ground
feeds makes a more economical feed
and a better balanced ration than the
whole grains alone. The feed ele-

S': also allowing much of the nutri-
i;:- ment to pass through the bird’s

In every pen or yard a box of

Muffs Small, Cuffs Big.
The newest muffs are as small ns a
child’s, this characteristic being due to
the enormous fur cuffs appearing on
many coats and dresses. The little
'muffs are not always made entirely of
fur, but sometimes chiffon or velvet is
combined with the pelts. Often a mere
fur strip is handed with frills of the
other materials forming the ends.
Along with this sort of muff some
smart neckpieces are being shown,
made also of fur and the other fabric.
A favored model seems to be a cape-
like collar fastening at one side, and
finished with satin bows ending in a
fur ball or pompon to tie the two sides
Beaver and nutria have been for a
long time the fur for children's gar-
ments. Now light gray squirrel is
used almost as much. Imitation furst
like beaver plush, are used on the less
expensive coats. The newer chil-
dren’s coats nearly all have a collar of
fur and perhaps a baud on the cuffs.

Some of the ground grains, such as

centage of bulk to the ration, which is
Animal protein Is considered essen-
tial to the best results in feeding. Most
poultry men feed meat In some form,
or fish scraps, w hile suburban poultry
keepers either feed this product or
table scraps; but few farmers buy any
meat feed. Some form of feed con-
taining animal protein must lie sup-
plied if any eggs nre to be obtained
in the winter. Skim milk or butter-
milk Is available on many farms, and
where it is not it would probably pny
most farmers to buy beef scrap or some
other ment feed. Fowls on free range
on the farms pick up bugs and in-
sects during part of the year, which
furnish this protein feed, so that the
use of additional meat feeds is regu-
lated by Individual conditions. Fowls
closely confined need more animal feed
than those on n good range; and in
a cold climate, where no hugs or in-
I sects are available during several win-
ter months, more animal feed must
be supplied than In sections where the
winters nre mild.
Balanced Ration for Poultry.
A well-balanced, simple ration may
be mnde of equal parts, hy weight, of
wheat, cracked corn, nnd onts fed
twdee dally, usually In the morning and
at night. The grain may be either
scattered on the range in summer and
in the litter in the poultry house in
winter, or fed In the house throughout
the year. It should he supplemented
with n wet or dry mash of two parts
of cornrneal and one part each of
wheat bran, middlings, nnd beef scrap.
One feed of mash may he fed at any
flme during the day and the grain fed
for the other two meals. Regulate the
proportions of grain nnd mush so that
the h<w\ will consume about equal parts
of each. About one quart of grain
daily should be fed to every 16 Leg-
horn hens, or to 13 general purpose
hens, such as the Plymouth Rocks,
with an equal weight of mash. This
amount, however, varies, and should
be regulated by the feeder, as the hens
should he eager for each meal. Leg-
horns will eat about 55 pounds of grain
and tnash iu » year, and Plymouth
Rocks or liens of the general-purpose
class, about 75 pounds.
