Good leguminous hay. well cured,
bright and free from dust and molds.
Is an essential in the proper mulnte-
uance of brood mares, writes John Ma­
son in the National Stockman. It should
not form the sole ration of roughage.
Some timothy or pruirie hay and some
bright corn fodder may also be fed.
but both are f>oor stuff for in foal
mares. Cornstalks are especially bad
food for mares in foul. They contain
far too much absolutely indigestible
matter that must be carried bodily out
of the system to make it right to rely
on it. Corn fodder alone will not main­
tain horses of any sort. There is not
enough nutriment in it Besides, weath­
er soured corn fodder Is infested with
molds and spores and other harmful
elements that should never be intro­
duced into so delicate a digestive sys­
tem as that o f the horse Corn and
oats, half and half, with about one-
fourtb of bran by weight, together
with a ration of clover or alfalfa and
timothy hay. half and half, will make
n splendid food for in foal mares, sud
once they are accustomed to it it should
never be suddenly changed.

Estacada Loses
To Wilsonville
The £stacada baseball team
which up to Wednesday after­
noon was the only undefeated
team in the Chautauqua League,
hit the toboggan Wednesday af­
ternoon against the Wilsonville
team, being defeated 12 to 3.
For the first four innings, the
locals played good ball, with no
opponent getting further than
first base, but thereafter, sad to
relate, Estacada tried football,
marbles, handball and golf, with
the result that Wilsonville took
the game.
John Moger, the local’s reli­
able southpaw, pitched a good
game, but ovying to the ragged
support, finally retired in favor
of Smith and Bronson, neither
of whom were able to save the
Neal Bronson and Wilbur Sim­
mons were the only locals who
seemed to be able to bat against
Wilsonville, Simmons getting a
three bagger, with Neal getting
safe hits.
This leaves all teams in the
league tied with a percentage of
500 per cent, so the result of the
series is as much in doubt today
as it was a week ago.

Uniting tha Family.
How many households have a fam
lly hour—a definite time iu the week
when all the members of tbe family
gather in perfect serenity for an inter­
val o f genuine communion? Although
civilization brings many advantages in
its train, it has tbe great fault of tend­
ing to disrupt family Intercourse. Each
member has too many individual activ­
Fathers have their business;
sons, their business or education; moth­
ers. their domestic duties or social oc­
cupations; daughters, their business,
their education or their social life.
All these things are right mid worthy
in themselves, but they do not tend to
weld the family. If mem tiers of a fam­
ily will make it a rule to devote them
selves for one hour in the week wholly
to one another the spirit of family life
will be quickened and strengthened
Often the members of a family pursue
parallel courses that do not Intersect.
It is mere platitude to point out tliut
great events—travel, marriage, death
and the like—must inevitably cause
disintegration. But so long as the fam­
ily is together under oue roof the spirit
of union and common interests should
be fostered.—You til's Companion.
