of feed To the first pen he fed 3 mix
ture of two parts shorts and one part

days. To the third pen he fed a mix

Sir. Townley has Just made out a
summary showing that the six hogs
ate pounds of various kinds of
feed during the experiments. The ag

prices was $2S.66. The gain pork was ,
647 pounds, which at $6.50 per hund
red weight. Is $42.05.
The first two pigs, fed for 62 da.s
on a mixture of two parts of shorts
and one of bran, consumed 1.10S
pounds and made a total gain of 232
pounds, an average gain of l.ST pounds
a day. This mixture cost 85 cents a
hundred weight and it took 5.03
pounds of it to make one pound of
gain. At this rate the cost of 100
pounds of gain was $4.34.
The second pair, fed for 49 days .
on chopped wheat, ate 792 pounds of
food and gained ..11 pounds a day.
This food cost $1.2o c hundred weight,

Popular Reports About the Historic
Spot Cleared Away.
So many false and foolish reports
about tbe Dead Sea that stranse
and interesting lake have been clr
culated lately, that the truth will, no
doubt be acceptable. Since the earth
quake In Palestine last April, some
one circulated the story that the
; mouth of the River Jordan had been
so affected by the shock that the
, Wei of the river had been altered to
1 such an extent that at the place
the historic river coes into the Dead
1 1 Sea there was now a waterfall of
t considerable depth and strenBtn.
s 1 nis is anogetner false, and no
1 1 change whatever has taken place at
or near the mouth of the Jordan. The
g ! writer has just spent some days
r 1 mere, and made it his Bpeclal busi
ness 10 investigate mis matter. .Miicn
has also appeared from time to time
in papers and periodicals about
steamboats navigating the Dead Sea.
This, too. is a fabrication. The
only boat on the Dead Sea is a small
sailing boat about 20 feet long. This
vessel makes trips as tbe wind al
lows, from the north end of the sea
to the bay on the eastern side of the
tongue that divides the water near
the middle. Here at this terminus
some Jews are located. The whole
concern Ib, in fact, in the hands of
Jews, who, at a low rate, buy wheat
and barley from the Arabs, to be de
livered on the seashore.
Prom there it is shipped to the
Jericho side, and carried on donkeys
to Jerusalem, where It finds a ready
sale at a good price. When reverse
winds blow, the little craft is In dan-
ger 01 oemg swamped, lor the so
called Dead Sea becomes a living
mass or waves. The writer recently
spent four nights, such as never will
be forgotten on these waters, and the
smartness of the old man at the
neim and his boy with the sails
saved us from being wrecked again
A charge of one mejedie (82 cents)
a trip Is made for each passenger,
and for such a unique voyago it is
not exorbitant There Is some
talk about a small steam tug bn'ng
put on the sea, but the authorities
ore loth to grant permission. It. will
be a great boon wherH If nvor. it
does arrive, as It will bring the can
and wet sides of Jordan nearer to
one another for communication and
trading purposes. London Graphic.
