Any management of live stock or

for remunerative operation of farms,

It Is a wrong Idea that young cattle

Water for Farm Animal.
It Is admitted that water Is essential
to the well-being of humans, and It
this Is so, why should anyone presume
to think that animals can get along
with little or no water? Yet that Is
the plan on which many farmers work.
The cows and horses are, perhaps,
properly watered, but the other farm
animals are given llttlo water. In a
series of experiments carried on by the
writer a number of years ago It was
found that sheep, swine and poultry
gave us nearly 20 per cent better re
turns when regularly and carefully wa
tered than when the water was given

tnck, it Is now a regular practice ta
give all the animals on the farm reg
ular supplies of clean water. In water
ing Uie sheep and swine, troughs are
provided and kept for the purpose.
After the animals have drank, the
troughs are removed, so that there Li
no chanco of them being defiled. It
will pay jvery time to water all farm
animals regularly and with clean wa

In handling sap every precaution
should be taken to keep out dirt, and
the sooner the sap Is boiled after It
runs from the tree the better for th
quality of 'the sugar. A dark-colored
product Is far from dcslrnule, and
quick, clean work Is necessary to se
cure a clear, light shade. Maple sugar
Is marketed at a time of year when
there Is little else to sell from the
farm, and when other work Is not es
pecially rushing. Modern sugar mak
ing with modern utensils and business
like methods Is a profitable enterprise,
and a source of extra Income which
should not be neglected.
A Ituluou Method.
To depend upon the use of purchased
fertilizers, to the neglect of such as
can be produced on the farm for the
production of each year's crop, Is a
ruinous method, which, while It may
not prove Immediately disastrous. Is
sure to Impoverish succeeding genera
