Hints To farmers.
Do not overfeed the growing
chicks, or they may become stunted
Don't wait until young poultry be
gin to droop and die before looking
Do not leave the cow* out In the
cold May raLns.
If the nest Is too flat the eggs are
sure to roll out from under the hen;
and If too deep the egg* will pile
on top of each other and get broken.
The changes in feed should be
brought about gradually and with as
much care aa possible.
In case your calves show signs of
bavlng scours, give them a teaspccn-
ful of One charcoal with th* milk for
a few days. When the trouble dis
appears. begin feeding hay and you
will not have any more difficulty
with the scours.
Did you ever watch a hen just af
ter you had put some nice clean
straw In the nest boxes? Hear her
talk about It when she climbs In to
lay ber egg. She knows the differ
ence and is happier than when the
straw was dirty and had lice In it.
Put in lots of sweet corn. It Is
an attraction on the home table and
a money.maker In the dairy.
Always give a good feeding of hay
before the cows are turned to pas
ture the first time In the spring.
All fruit trees need pruning im
mediately after planting. Make the
tops correspond with the roots.
Peaches need the most trimming af
ter setting; trim these to mere
switches about two feet high and
without side shoots longer than one
Kerosene is a splendid aid in the
cleaning of windows. Into a basin
put two tablespoonfuls of kerosene
and two of water
Wash with a soft
cloth and dry with a newspaper.
This process will remove flyspecks
from both glass and paint better
than water and soap do, and leaves
the glass with a better polish.
Set a post in your hog lot and
every hog will rub against it

ive louse killer.
Wrap the post
tightly from the ground up with
quarter-inch rope and saturate the
rope with kerosene every few days.
Kerosene will kill lice, and the hogs
will keep on scratching against this
post. —From May Farm Journal.
