to compete for state honors at I***
Mote*, and a total of 4*5 head were
lte*J ep before the fudges when the
Mate contest was called.
The steer with which Uoyd won the
highest honor against this strong field
was a pore hred Aberdeen Angus calf
named Tlnay*’. He was a February
Calf. aired by Erin Bay II of Lone Ash.
LJoyd bought him In September and
fed him largely on a home-grown ra-
tion of shelled corn and clover hay.
The calf did so well that his owner en-
tered him In the Baby Beef dub in hla
county, and at the local fair was
awarded the * championship over S2
entries. This award carried with It a
free trip to the International Life
Stock exposition, which will be held In
Chicago the first week In December.
Took Hla Pet to Fair.
Spurred on by this success. Lloyd
took hla pet steer to the Iowa state
fair. Tills animal and one other were
the only entries from Linn county,
which made hla subsequent triumph
all the more noteworthy. After the
large classes of well-fitted beeves had
been sifted down by the breed judges,
Prof. II. H. Klldee was called upoa to
calf at the date of the Iowa state fair.

Pueblo, Colo.—“When my daughter,
now Mrs. Eva Tidtnarsh, was sixteen
she suffered terribly at times as many
girls do, and did not feel real good
at any time. She had pimples all
over her body. A friend told me to
get her a bottle of Dr. Pierce’s Fav-
orite Prescription, as her daughter
had taken it and had derived wonder-
ful relief from it. My daughter took
three bottles and now she is per-
fectly well—never has a headache or
backache. We both never forget to
recommend Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre-
scription.”—Mrs. Lula Davis, 108 E.

New Method of Control
of Stinking Wheat Smut
A new method for the control of
stinking smut of wheat, which was
especially bad In many sections of In-
diana this year, causing dockage of 10
to 18 cents a bushel In a few pluces,
is being recommended to Hoosler farm-
ers now by the agricultural extension
department of Purdue university. It
Is wliat Is known ns the copper car-
bonate method nnd Is said to be con-
siderably better than the formalde-
hyde way which has been used exten-
sively In other years over IndlHnu at
the suggestion of the university and
county agricultural agents.
Careful Handling Is of
Importance With Apples
Care In handling Is of great Impor-
tance In storing apples. Bough handling
results In stem bruises, broken skin
and bruised spots. A broken skin
gives entrance to blue mold, which de-
velops slowly at a low temperature,
but causes considerable deterioration
In th* fruit.
Entirely Dry Fodder
Will Make Good Silage
Farmers who do not get their silage
made before frost may have good
silage If they will utilize the dry fod-
der tor this purpose, according to the
live stock m**n at the New York State
College of Agriculture.
Fodder silage not only makes better
feed than dry fodder, but It Is ;.lso
more convenient to feed. Even though
the corn fodder appears dry and wl’V
ed, the stalk will be found to contain
considerable moisture. If there is no
enough moisture In the corn to pack
the corn well In the silo, additional
water should be added. By adding
this to the fanbox the fan thoroughly
distributes the additional water.
Even entirely dry fodder will make
good silage, providing the wuter Is
added in equal weight to the fodder.
In any case, the fodder should be
tramped down thoroughly.
Sllnge made In this manner will beep
well. The quuirty Is not quite as good
as that made from corn cut while still
green and no extra water udded, but It
makes excellent feed. Silage made
from corn fodder, further. Is not nearly
as sour. It has a pleasant sweet Brnell
and the cows not only like It, but
thrive on It us well.
Corn for Silage Should
Be Practically Matured
Silage corn should be allowed to
grow as late us the season penults, or
until the corn Is practically matured,
1. e., the kernel bus become bard and
dented. The stalk Is usually sumewhat
green as late us this stage. Muny ex-
periments have been conducted which
show that a greater amount of feed
of u better quality and that will keep
more euslly can be obtuined from silage
which is made from corn cut at this
stage of maturity.
Storing Vegetables for
Home Use During Winter
It is to the Interest of every family
to grow each season a supply of those
vegetables suitable for storage, uud to
see that they ure properly stored for
use during tbe winter months when
prices ure high und vegetables often
bard to get. Less work and less ex-
pense are involved In storing vege-
tables than in keeping them by other
methods, us canning, drying, and pre-
serving, and the product retains Its
characteristic iluvor much better.
Train Hogs on Soy Beans.
Those who have plunted soy horns
in corn for hogging off can educate
their hogs to clean up the soy beans
by throwing a few bundles of the
beans over Into the feed yurd for a
few dnys before the hogs ure turned
into the field.

One of tbe chief reneons for this unprofitable situation is the
average farmer’s poor facilities for moving his crops or stock
to the place where he can sell or ship to the best advantage.
Because of the time and expense of horse delivery millions ot
dollars worth of produce spoils annually on American tarma.
The saving of this waste would, in many cases, change a losing
farm to a money-maker.

How Women Mail Letter*.
Femininity has Its own way of
posting a simple, everyday letter, ac-
rording to one keen observer. For In-
stance, out of 30 women who were
watched at a street letter box In the
residential section of a large city, 21
withdrew the letter before quite let-
ting go of It, to scan both sides of the
envelope, tn be certain the letter was
securely sealed, properly addressed,
stamped and to make sure nobody
rould look through the envelope to
read the contents.
That Provides the Time.
X—Could you spare the time for an
Y—Certainly. My wife has Just told
me she'll be ready In a minute.
A strong and beautiful soul will
ihow Itself such, though Its body be
feeble, sick or ungraceful.
Lightning plays pranks which are
not so easily explained. Some year*
ago a Russian steamer crossing the
Black sea was struck by lightning
three separate times within seven min-
utes. Though set on fire, her crew
managed to put out the (lames and
get her back to port. A wheat ship
on Lake Huron was struck twice with-
in three minutes, each time In the
same spot. Tbe second flash set her
on fire and she sank.

If coffee causes trouble,

Postum is a pure cereal

flavor, that many people
