Ground Plan of Well Arranged Hog House.
Most good hog raisers who have |
warm buildings try to have their sows
commence farrowing about March 1,
but without good houses this is Im-
practicable. Without a good house
two litters a year cannot be raised to
advantage, because the spring pigs
must be put off until so late that the
fall litters do not get well started be-
fore cold weather, but with a good
house two litters can well be raised.
. What is the necessary cost of hous-
ing a litter? Where lumber is $25 to
$25 a thousand, good single-walled
houses need not cost over $10 to $20
a pen. and double-walled $20 to $30 a
pen. It Is doubtful economy, under
most conditions, to make them cost
over $30 a pen, and very good sheds
are sometimes made for less than $10
a pen. It is easy do get too much
pense into any building, and the hog
house is no exception. No one can
afford for any purpose a building so
expensive that interest and depreeia-
« tion ill eat up its usefulness,
Possibly the cheapest house possible
is a low building with a single row of
pens and no alley, .but such a house
is very Inconvenient, especially in
stormy weather. A hog house should
always stand east and west, facing
the south, so that the maximum
amount of sunshine may be had hi
each pen. *
One of the mpst serviceable struc-
tures the writer has ever Been was
built by a prominent Duroc breeder.
This house has been copied by many
farmers. The house is 22x30 feet and
contains ten pens.
The gates across the alley all lift
off their ^linges so they can be re-
moved or replaced in a moment. The
fronts*of the pens next to the alley are

all loose panels which lift out. In
this way the whole house can be
made into one large roonv in a few
moments. The house Is well ventilated
and is unusually convenient and com
tortable for the hogs.
There are three great breeds of ,
hogs, and in the order of their numbers |
they are Poland-Chlnas, DuroojJejpeys
and Berkshires. The Duroc-Jersey hog
is rapidly becoming more popular, j
and deservedly so. They have all the j
good points of the Poland-Chinas, but
the sows have larger litters of pigs
and the ability to save them, while the
fat hogs when ready for market out-
weigh Poland-China hogs of the same
age and finish. The Duroc-Jersey and
the Poland-China breeds originated in
Ohio, and constitute the corn *belt
type of hog. I.ong grown by breeders
who selected for neatness of frame, a
result favored by a ration, principally
corn, which consisted largely of fat
and carbohydrates, and low in content
of protein and calcium salts, hogs of
these two breeds are chunky, early ma-
turing and producers of the best lard
in the world. Hogs of these breeds
are fine of bone and fatten easily at
early ages, making possible the large,
run of 175 and 200-pound hogs that
were so much in demand during the
present year and always find a ready

chunky type of hog the Duroc-Jersey
-•Is not so extreme as the Poland
China, being somewhat larger and
possessing more scale. Their color is
a rich red or mahogany, and is very
pleasing. The faults of the breed are,
a tendency towards too large litters of
undersized pigs, faulty backs and a
tendency to sandy colors.

TOLD HER LIFE’S AMBITION
Small Girl Somewhat Crudely Ex-
pressed Her Desire to Be a
. Teacher When She Grew Up.
The splendid and gorgeous fabrics
brought out this season can only be
worn to best advantage when they
are made up into ample draperies that
fall about, and enshroud the figure.
They have, proven an Inspiration to
designers. Fabrics have for years
Indeed outdistanced styles. When we
look, at these marvels from tho loom
we realize that they are fit for god-
desses to wear.
Perhaps, for this very reason, cloaks
are *long hut full. Materials are so
supple that they incline to fall to the
figure and to aid them they are provid-
ed with little weights where needed.
A superb coat of satin and a gold
brocaded fabric is shown here. It is
worn with muff and hat of chinchilla
and an ostrich neck ruff.
The dress under the coat is of satin
and chiffon. It appears to be some-
thing between a pannier and redin-
gote style. Again Hie lightness and
suppleness of the fabrics make pos-
sible the mixed design. It is not so
beautiful as the coat but lias .many
interesting features, like the queer
shaped sleeves and pointed collar and
the long lines of button ornaments. ,
HAVE WIDE CHOICE IN COATS
Not for Many Years Has There Been
Such a Large and Excellent Variety
from Which to Select.

Amount of Care. Whether

Horses that are well fed and given
warm, well-bedded stables and care-
fully handled are not injured by being
worked in cold weather. Give good
daily grooming, plenty to eat, water
regularly, provide good ventilation,
clean the stables every morning, and
let the sun shine into the stable.
Sunshine and pure air is of prime
Importance. Manure allowed to ro-
main in the stable will ferment and
poison the air of the stable and give
the horses lung disease. When horses

A careful hand will save his wages
in the feeding and care of his team.
For severe work mules are superior to
horses. If humanely handled they are
as docile as the horse, much less li-
able to diseaBO. A grass pasture at-
tached to the barn will be a great con-
venience. The horses whon not at
work may be turned out to graze a|id

able. Stable the stock In rainy

In dairy work, there 1b very little to
be said regarding the difference in
care between the different dairy
breeds, says Hoard's Dairyman. Milk
function requires a certain kind of
care, whether it Is found in the Jersey,
Ayrshire, Guernsey or Holstein. The
moment we expect a dairy cow to rus-
tle for her living, that moment she be-
gins to depreciate as a dairy animal.
The milk-making function of the mod-
ern dairy cow is to a large degree ar-
tificial, and to keep It up to the high-
est state to which it has been deveh
oped requires what might be term-
ed artificial environment and feed-
We presume that if we would
study of the history of the Ayrshires.
Guernseys and Jerseys, we would find
that the Ayrshire cow has been forced
to do more rustling, living under more
rugged and rough conditions, than
either the Jersey or Guernsey. The
Ayrshire conies from a country the
climate of which is colder, pastures
rougher, and perhaps less productive
than the countries in which the Guern-
seys and Jerseys originate. But as
the milk-making function becomes de-
veloped and the animal is called upon
to do a larger amount of work, it
demands, whether in the case of Ayr-
shire, Jersey or any other breed, about
the same kind of care and treatment
for the beBt results. If, however, we
should reason back to the environ-
ments under which the Ayrshire,
Guernsey and Jersey originated, It
would perhaps not be out of place to
say that the Ayrshire would be a bet-
ter hustler for her feed than the^ Jer-
sey or Guernsey.
Certain short draped coats of sup-
ple fur rounding away in the front are
launched by extremists, who are push-
ing the pegtop silhouette, but they are
by no means graceful even for the
slender woman, and are not likely to
be taken seriously by the women in
Some Russian coats of half length
or longer button up the left front,
close on the left shoulder, and have
high, close collars finished at the top
by a narrow band of contrasting fur.
A model of this type usually is loosely
belted or girdled across the back, If
not all around, and the model, while
pvtod-looking if well worn. Is becoming
only to the exceptional woman.
Many of the new fur coats are made
without collars for greater convenience
In the wearing of separate neck furs.
Linings are often of the= handsome
brocades, and in some of the most
luxurious garments these linings are
so rich in themselves that they add
greatly to the cost of the coat.

At one time or another during the

Good Potato Crop.
A crop of potatoes at the rate of 550
bushels per acre is reported by W. B.
Hewitt of Kennebec county, Me. The
field comprises only one-third of an
acre. The variety was Green Moun-
tain and the fertilizer hen manure.
The crop was Bprayed six times dur-
ing the season.
Kafir Corn Fodder.
Kafir corn fodder has about the
same feeding value as com fodder,
and can be used In the same way.
Most appropriate for this season of
the year, becoming dark colors have
precedence in millinery. In the ve-
lours. browns and similar fabrics
which are so much used, the darker
colors are alwajls most beautiful.
These are frequently accentuated and
relieved from too extreme somberness
by a touch of white. The hat in the
drawing has a charmingly rolled brim
of unexaggerated lines, but with the
modish extension of brim of the side.
This hat is of black velvet, with high
square crown, against which a beau-
tiful breast and wings of white stands
out in bold relief. Two supplementary
wings Increase the length of the sides.
To Properly Apply Powder.
To produce the best effect in the
use of powder for the face it is nec-
essary to first place a foundation of ‘
some good cream. Apply it gently, j
massaging it Into the skin, rub off
the remaining portions ‘with a soft I
linen cloth and then dust the powder
over the face and neck, taking care j
that the spaces beneath the chin and
about the ears are well covered. Next
rub the powder well into the skin
with a soft piece of velvet until it
Is evenly blended. With a damp brush
remove all traces of powder from the |
brows, lashes or the edge of the

Fire in Bank of England.
The first fire within memory oc-
curred at the Bank of England, Lon-
don, a few days ago. The fire broke
out in the southwestern portion ot
the building. The flooring and Joint-
ing were considerably damaged. The
outbreak was discovered by the Bank
of England authorities, and subdued
by their own appliances in 30 min-
utes. A lieutenant and a dozen men
of the Irish Guards on duty at the
bank, with fixed bayonets, assisted
the police in keeping the crowd back
from the building.
