five the Hoar Chance to Doctor
. Dr. Galen Wilson, the noted veterina
ry writer, in a recent issue of the New
York Weekly Tribune gives the follow
ing on the care of swine :
From personal use when I kept swine
and from a multitude of testimony
since I know It to be advisable to give
fattening hogs access to charcoal.
Feeding swine concentrated foods
largely and usually at times to excess
upsets or disarranges their digestive
apparatus, causing stomach and bowel
difficulties, with their multifarious at
tending evils. Alternate constipation
and diarrhea are very opt to occur and
weaken the digestive organs, giving
easy opportunity for all sorts of Inter
nal parasites to get in their destructive
work. Charcoal seems to nDsorD or
neutralize the gases from fermenting
sour food in the stomach and expels
any troublesome forms that may have
found lodgment there. Theodore Louis
of Wisconsin Is one of the best authorl
ties on swine in America, and he would
no more bo without charcoal in his fat
tening pens or feed lots than he would
be without bread on his own table. He
never has any sick hogs. He keeps
continually accessible to his swine a
charcoal self feeder which is a box
with a trough at the base so construct
ed that only a little of the coal can
drop down at a time and this only as
fast as that exposed is removed. Any
one handy with tools can make one
from this description. If no self feed
er Is made, then give the animals daily
on a floor as much as they seem to eat
greedily. But charcoal from wood Is
not often to be had now when the
country Is so nearly and generally
cleared of its timber, yet coal from
corncobs Is just as good.
Nearly every farmer has the cobs,
and it Is easy to make them into coal.
To do it make a pit in the ground four
or five feet deep, about 18 inches In
diameter at the bottom and five feet
at the top. Have a sheet Iron cover
made large enough to cover the pit and
project bIx inches over the edges. Start
a fire in the bottom with shavings and
add by degrees a bushel or more of
Cobs and let them get well aglow.
Then add three or four bushels more
and when well on fire add more, and sol
on until the pit is rounding full. Should
the cobs hum faster on one side than
the other lift the cobs to the side that
is burning, least with a sharpened
pole. Get some Iron rod long- enough
to lay across the center of the hole to
keep the Iron cover from sagging.
When all the cobs are well blazing cov
er the pit with the sheet iron and press
fresh earth all around the edges to
keep the pit air tight Leave the pit so
until the next day, when the charcoal
can be taken out and there will be
about ten bushels. If one wants to
know now whether his hogs need char
coal or not let him get a handful of
coal from among any wood ashes and
place it before his swine. Should they
eat It readily It will be a sure indl
cation that they require It to correct
something that Is interfering with their
digestion and the owner would con
serve his own interests as well as pro
mote the welfare of his hogs by "get
ting a hustle on him" and providing
them with the needful charcoal. If
that is Impossible, or soft coal more
convenient, crack up some of that into
fine pieces and give them. It seems to
answer the same purpose. W'here
sort coal is plentiful and cheap some
swine feeders provide it regularly for
their animals. At the mouth of a small
vein of soft coal by the roadside In the
soft coal region of Pennsylvania, being
mined by any farm neighbors who
might need It, I have seen swine pick
up waste pieces of coal and crack them
as other swine were cracking hickory
nuts that fell from an adjacent tree.

coal and give the hog a chance to doc

It'8 Wortti Tryisg
Weight and Form.
The fundamental reason why weight
Is not generally quoted In referring to
breeding cattle Is that It counts for lit
tle Independent of the form and quality
In which it Is carried, says The Breed
ers Gazette. For example, a breeder
may advertise a bull that weighs 2,800
pounds. Some prospective buyer, with
the need of a bull of extreme weight,
might go to see him and find that the
animal was huge and coarse In his ana
tomical structure and hence wholly out
of consideration as a type to sire mod
ern meat making cattle. Form and
quality are the first considerations,!
then comes weight for age as Indicat
ing early maturing or feeding qualities.
Men with herds of large, rather coarse
framed cows may sometimes use to ad-!
vantage bulla weighing a ton In show
condition, but few breeders care to put
in service a sire that will not tip the
heam at that figure when in ordinary
flesh. If a man has a company of
cows inclined to be on the small side,
he may take a bull of more ranee in
form and of heavier weight by several
hundred pounds. The rule which has
governed the bulk of breedlne opera
tions In this country for about 15 years
is tnat evolved and formulated at the
old American fat stock show, "the
greatest weight in the smallest super-
uces. 'ine weight alone does not tell
the tale. Form is the first consideration.
