when he will stretch out for a snooro
If tlin trough Is big enough.
To nvold the waste of feed, and to
glre all nn wpial chance to secure
their Hliare, I have a number of
schemes and devices, but I consider
tho one shown In the Illustration to be
as good as, If not better than, any.
Then, too, It Is so simple tliat any
farmer with a hammer and saw, and
such loose pieces as may bo found In
almost any scrap pile, can build a sub
stantial affair that will suit
Tho first requisite Is a good-sized,
well-constructed trough, built prefer
ably In V-shape, a shown by "a." Tho
width of tho side boards will depend
upon the size of the bogs to be fed. A
small trough, with six-Inch sldo
boards, may be uied for the wee pigs,
nnd twelve or slxteen-luch stuff for the
large shotcs and breeding sows. The
size of plccen "c" and "d" should de
pend upon the weight of the animals
and the strain likely to coiuo on the
frame. For hogs of ordinary weight
a piece two by four Inches should be
nsed for the ridge-pole, "c," and pieces
ono by three or two by two Inchea for
tho guard bars, "d." These should be
securely uallcd to tho sldo of the
trough, and If a permanent trough In
the hog house, spiked to the floor to
prevent breaking off. The upright,
"e," firmly spiked to "b,M should be
amply stout to, secure cndwlso rigid
ity. For delivering slop to the trough, a
spout or small trough should be ar
ranged to enter at the end of the feed
trough. With this arrangement, when
the distance between tbo bars has been
properly adjusted to the stze of the
animal, only one can get to the trough
between each space, and all sldewlsc
crowding Is effectually prevented.
Drley Feed for Hones.
Except on the Facltlc coast barley
Is not extensively used as a feed In the
United States, doubtless owing to the
fact that It Is In such demand for
brewing purposes that It Is high tn
price. Wherever It Is grown, however,
It Is frequently nosilble to secure at a
low cost grain which la off color owing
to rain or fog during harvest and
which for this or some other reason Is
unlit for brewing, but valuable as feed.
The barley grown on the I'acltle coast
Is extensively used in the feeding of
horses. Its use for this purpose U old
In other countries. The Arabs fed their
horses ungrouud barley, and It Is used
successfully by the Berbers of north
Africa. In Europe Its value Is gener
ally recognized. Barley may be fed
whole to horses having good teeth and
not required to do severe work. Since
ground barley, llko wheat, forms a
pasty mass when mixed with saliva, It
Is regarded as more satisfactory to
crush than to grind It If for any rea
son It Is considered undesirable to feed
the grain whole.
A Cheap Wood Sled.
My wood sled gave out early In the
winter and I mndo a good substitute
of seme 2-Inch plank. The runners
are 8 feet long and 2x0 Inches square.
They are held with four braces of
the same material, i feet long and fas
tened with spikes and bolts. Stakes
aro set In the front and rear cross
pieces and a draw chain hitched to the
front cross piece. The runners go flat
side down and the ends are rounded to
prevent catching on tho Ice. The sled
can be used with the body or box of a
wagon. It Is a good sled for heavy
work and short hauls. For long hauls.
the runners should be shod. I. A.

The whole matter resolve Itself Into
a question of soil and climate. It a
soil I thin, then It I manifest that It
would bo very foolish to dip tho plow
Into tho raw subsoil and bring It to tho
top, though perhaps Hubsolllng would
Improve matters by helping the drain
ing and allowing tlio root to peno
trate downward more easily. Again,
In the matter of climate; In a dry dis
trict shallow plowing nearly always
gives tlio best result) with a grain
crop, at least. Often the best wheat
has been grown where the aurface
was disked to clean off the rubbish,
and Uio seed drilled In down to the
hard, unmoved soil. The reason of
this Is that In a dry district tho plant
has to depend largely on the ground
moisture, which rise by capillary ac
tion much better through firm soil than
through loose plowed hind. Whern
bare fallowing I practiced on stiff
clays, then the shallow system Is tho
best, for It mean ever so much less
soil to move per acre where there are
repeated plowing, cultivations, etc,
to be done. On the whole, probably
shallow plowing, combined with an oc
casional stirring of the subsoil with n
subsoller attached to the plow, 1 the

Most of the labor-saving tools about
farm buildings could be readily fash
ioned at home If one Is handy with
tools and has the Inclination to put
Ideas Into effect. One of the best of
the simple tools for the barn Is tbo
combination fork and scraper made In
the following manner: Select an Inch
board five Inches wldo and seven or
eight Inches longer than the width of
the fork used In the stable.
Bevel tho lower edge of the board
for the scraper, then bora boles near
tho lower edge, ono for each tine of
the fork, so that after nslng the fork
to handle the coarse stuff It may bo

Inserted Into the boles In the board
and tho combination used as a scraper.
The artist has added anotiier to tbo
combination, a rake, which Is made by
driving wire spikes luto the top edgo
of the board and filing off the beads.
This can be dono or not as one wish
es, but combined fork and scraper la
certainly a most useful tool. Indian
