Only Half an Hour from Town
, ODERN business men and farmers
have ceased to measure distances by
miles. Minutes serve instead. "We
are just half an hour from town,"
says a farmer who lives seven miles
out and owns an International car. "I went to
town today, starting half an hour after my
neighbor went by my gate with his team, and
I passed him just where the main street pav
ing begins. We visit every friend within thirty
miles, hear lectures, see entertainments, have
a better time in every way since I bought an
International Commercial Car
An Ohio business man says "When I am
using my International Commercial Car the
expense i3 about the same as with a team, but
when it is not in use it is not eating, and,
therefore, costs nothing. After a year's experi
ence, I find the repair bills to be no more
than the bills for shoeing, harness repairs,
wagon repairs, painting, etc., and there is the
added advantage of getting around three times
When you own an International Commercial
Car you make the trips you used to neglect
' because you did not want to take the horses
from their work. It can be used in all sea
sons when the road is passable to horses. The
wheels are high enough to give ample road
clearance. Solid tires give good traction and
eliminate many tire troubles. The engine is
6imple and powerful. It will pay you in many
ways to know all about the International Com- S
mercial Car. A letter brings full particulars
with many interesting facts and figures.

The NEWS JOB DEPARTMENT
Proper feeding of fowU it a simple
or complex proposition depending on
the size of the flock.
The man who keeps a dozen hens and
ferds them largely on scraps from the
table, which are usually rich in pro
tein, and supplements this with a feed
of grain in the evening may know noth
ing about the comparative values of
the various feeds, yet will get good re
sults. Hut as the flock Increases in
size the problem of proper feeding be
comes one which calls for consider
Smith, who runs a boarding house,
keeps about eighteen hens and their
feed consists of a generous supply of
scraps from the table and a little
corn Just before going to roost. Ills
hens have been laying all winter.
Jones who lives Just across the
street keeps about ninety hens, and
feeds them three times a day on
wheat and rolled barley thrown on
the ground, and about the only exer
cise- tht-y get Is picking up their
grain. He gets two and sometimes
as many as four eggs a day. Occas
ionally they kill a fowl for the table,
and he knows that those hens are
rolling in fat, yet when he learns
that Smith is feeding his hens corn
and getting eggs he rushes to the
feed store and gets a sack of corn
to feed his already overfat hens in the
vain hope that it will make them lay.
That shows how much thought some
people give to the feeding question.
Of course any one can follow form
ulas for feeding and get good results,
but as I have said before, it is best
to know why we do things, instead of
merely knowing how to do them.
In order to understand the prob
lem of feeding for best results we
must first understand what the var
ious feeds are composed of and the
amount of each element found in each.
Nearly all foods contain five ele
ments In varying degrees, viz., pro
tein, carbohydrates, ash or mineral
matter, water and fat. Of all these
protein is the most valuable in fact,
the protein of a food may be said to
establish the value of the feed. For
instance corn and wheat contain near
ly the same amount of protein as
wheat and corn, and are usually about
j double the price. Beef scrap, meat and
blood meal contain about the same
'amount of protein as the legumes and
are usually priced about the same.
Animal protein as found In beef
' scrap, etc., and In the natural state are
worth a little more than the vege
; table protein, and cannot be entlrly
replaced by it. The animal protein is
'seemingly more easily digested and
assimilated by fowls than the veget
able. Fowls on free range will. In spring
'and Hummer find a considerable
amount of food rich in protein, and can
be given a wider ration than at other
seasons of the year, or than can be
! given to fowls in confinement at any
The second In importance carbohy
drates are used almost entirely in "he
production of heat and energy. They
are found in largest quantity m
starchy and sugary food and for a long
time it was thought that carbohydrates
were fattening, but dem nM r it.uns
prove that fowls fed on a ration rich
in carbohydrates and deficient in fats
will not take on fat. However, if th-
be given a ration rich In both carbo
hydrates and fats, the carbohydrates
will be used tip in the production of
body heat and energy, and the fats will
be stored for future conversion Into
heat and energy. This proves pretty
conclusively that carbohydrates can
not be stored in the form of adipose
tiKsue as fats can. It is well known
that fowls fed for long on rations rich
in carbohydrates will soon become
afflicted with liver disorder.
The ash or mineral matter -is valu
able in forming bone tissue, and in
the formation of egg shells. Hence
any food stuff rich in ash is particular
ly desirable for growing stock and
in calculating the nutritive value of
a ration, the fat Is figured as havipj
two and one-half times the value of the
carbo hydrates added to two and one
half times the percentage of fats is
divided by the figure representing the
value or percentage of the protein, and
expressed as a ratio of one part protein
to the resulting proportion of fats and
Hence, wheat, containing 11.9 per
cent protein and 71.9 per cent carbo
hydrates, and 2.1 per cent fat, the
alio would be found by multiplying
the 2.1 per cent fat by 2 which gives
.i.25. Add to this the 71.9 per cent
carbohydrates and we have the full
value of the heat and energy producing
elements. The protein content is 11.9
per cent and by dividing th 71.9 plus
525 by 11.9 w get a dividend of 6H
plus as protein. It is written 1:6.5 or
l.fi'6, and Is too wldo a ration for
fowls In confinement, especially here
nil the coast where the weather Is
mild all the year, and comparatively
little heat forming food needed.
A properly balanced ration for fowls
in conflnment is about one part protein
to four parts carbohydrates and fats,
and Is written 1:4.

"A "MITE OF A REPUBLIC.
Moraanst la Only Ona and a Quartar
Squara Milaa In Extant.
The smallest state In Europe, the
autonomous republic of Moresnet, la on
the boundary between Germany and
Moresnet has an area of barely ona
and a quarter square miles and pop
ulation of 3.500. It owes Its existence
to a boundary controversy for the con
trol of a ouee lmiKjrtant zinc mine. A
boundary commission settling the fron
tiers of Holland and Prussia after the
fall of Napoleon In 1814 was unable to
agree upon the ownership of this tiny
piece of land, with Its valuable mining
rights, and finally left the question for
future settlement. Neither power was
to occupy It, and It was administered
Jointly by the two states.
In practice the Joint administration
soon resulted In an administration by
neither state, and the community be
came autonomous under the protection
and tutelage of Prussia and Holland
and later of Prussia and Belgium. In
1811 the two guaranteeing countries
regularized this and formally gave the
district its own Independent adminis
tration. It has no courts, but litigants
can choose between the Belgium and.
Prussian tribunals in beginning litiga
tion, which is subject to the laws nei
ther of Germany nor of Belgium, but
of the ancient Code Napoleon. Chi

Tha Human Brain.
Id estimating the size of the human
brain in comparison with the brain of
other animals we must figure on not
only the positive size, but the relative.
Were this not the case man would
stand below the elephant hdJ whale,
as the brains of those creatures far ex
ceed man's la positive size, while as
regards relative size they stand so far
below him that, while the brain of the
elephant amounts to about the five-
tiuudredth aud that of the whale to
three-thousandth part of the bodily
weight of these animals respectively,
the brain of man varies from one-thir
ty-fifth to one-thirty -seventh of his en
tire weight This shows the immense
8iiHTlority of the human brain as com
pared with the brains of the lower ani
mals. New York American.
Dogs That Hunt Crabs.
A collector for the London too has
succeeded In capturing several crab
bunting and crab eating dogs In Brazil.
The dogs are half fox, but they do not
seem to care very much for poultry,
They have been known to turn up their
noses at nice, fat pullets and go fishing
for crabs instead. The dogs hunt Id
packs along the banks of the rivers in
the Amazon valley, and the crawfish
and land crabs of that region are their
especial prey. The crabs often put up
a vigorous fight, but the dogs have a
way of turning them over and biting
them In a vital spot just as the thor
oughbred terrier polishes off a rat
