manner of feeding growing stock it is
very essential to have tlie feed in the

The feed should be fresh and as clean

young growing stock. It Is very neces

that they digest and assimilate the
food given them, ami unless they are
allowed to become hungry between
feeding times they will lay around too

feet long, or 435 shocks of fodder 14

By April 1 last year the lambs fed at
the barn had gone to market, and the
lambs sheltered by the temporary shed
moved to the barn. During April the
fodder roof was fed off to the stock In
the adjoining lots, leaving the skeleton
frame for use again this year.
Last fall I extended the shed In length
to 100 feet, using 135 shocks of fodder
cut 14 hills square, making 1,000 bun
dles, covering 1.04X) feet of floor space.
Tills shed stands north and south, the
north end coming within ten feet of
low down barn. A post and rail and
post and plank fence is used for the
west side of the framework of the
shed. The cracks between the rails
and planks were covered with cheap
plank to keep the lambs from eating
the fodder through the cracks after It"
is set against the fence. The frame
work is constructed for a comb roof.
The center row of posts is seven feet
high. It should be nine or ten feet,
made from white oak poles about eight
inches in diameter at the butt. They
are set 2Vj feet in the ground in a
hole bored with a seven inch post au
ger, the posts being dressed to fit the
hole. The soil is hard clay, so the
posts stand firm.
The sides are about four feet high,
the rafters on the west side resting on
the top rail or plank of the fence. They
should rest on top of posts about one
foot higher. The center posts are set
the same distance apart as fence posts
and a rafter for each post, making
them nine feet apart for the post and
rail and six feet apart for the post
and plank fence.
For tiie fodder to rest on rails are
put across the rafters. The east side

There were two applicants. The prize
was won by Martha Shlngler, who
threw seven. The same dicebox has
been used for 00 years.—Londou Tele

O f all domestic animals sheep are
the greatest fertilizers, the best scaven
gers and the easiest kept with the
least expense of any live stock on the

kets and Sheep. My owu experience
has taught me Hint they are not only
the farmer’s relief from hard work,
but that they will pay for all the care
and all the feed that are given them In
I the way of manure.
There can be found on almost every
farm in the laud some rough and hilly
ground that Is not producing as it
should, and all that land could in a
short time be made as valuable as the
rest by the pasturing and feeding of a
few sheep thereon, for they will seek
the highest points, and there they
will scatter their manure better and
evener than can be done in any other
way. It is my opinion that a farm
can maintain a flock of sheep, say one
sheep to every two acres, at compara
tively no cost whatever, and they will
bring him from $3 to $5 per head each
year, so that on every farm of 100
acres 50 sheep can be kept, and they
will pay in manure for every bit of
feed and all the care, and the farmer
Is ahead from $150 to $200 each year.
