Is Favored.
For hogs running out the following

of copperas In hot water, sprinkle
with tho solution tlio mixture of the
-other things; mix all up thoroughly
-and put the mixture In the feed boxes
Ttaa set them when tho hogs will havo
free access to them. Every farmer
should havo self-fording boxes or
rncks, so that the stock cau only get
tho needed supply nnd not waste It
nor get too heavy a supply at one time.
Improvement Can Be More Quickly
Brought About by Use of 'More
Registered Sires.
The moro general use of good pure
bred sires Is strongly advocated as the
foundation stone to live slock Improve

provement can be moro quickly and
ecoi'omjctilly brought about In the
herds of the country by tlio use of
better sires than In any other way.

When on Free Range There Is No
Overfeeding and Necessary Exer
cise Is Obtained,
Improper feeding combined with
close confinement, tins been tin? cause
of many fnllurs In turkey raising.
When on free range the poults are
busy most of the dny searching for
feed. Here there is no overfeeding
nnd hick of exercise, such ns poults
nro often subjected to by thine Ignor
ant of their wants. If the range Is
plentifully supplied with green feed,
grasshoppers, and other Injects, and if
the weather Is faxorable, the best plan
Is to nllow tho poults to feed them
selves. It Is usually advisable, how
ever, to have them come home nt night,
and If driven up and fed nt n certain
place every night they will soon lenm
to come up themselves.
When, on nccount of rainy weather
or unfavorable range conditions, It Is
idvlsnblo to raise tho poults by the
-oop method, more care must be given
o their feeding.
Successful turkey rntsers use many
llffercnt kinds of feed. Some suggest

is to keep the milk in front of the

Every Live Stock Owner Should
Boost Campaign Inaugurated to
Eradicate Tuberculosis.
(Preparetl by tho United States Dpart
ment of Agriculture.)
Live stock owners nro earnestly re
quested not to wait until tho states
nnd federal government come Into
their localities to erndlcato tubercu
losis. It would not be possible Indeed,
nt this stage to undertake to eradicate
tuberculosis from the llvo stock of tho
United States solely through organized
olllchil forces established by tho re
spective states nnd the federal gov
ernment. The area over which tuber
culosis has spread Is too vast, the
herds too numerous, nnd funds nro
lusutllclcnt for conducting tho work
on so extensive a plan even though
trained veterinarians were nvnllnnle
In sutllcleut numbers to do the work.
Kvery live-stock owner should be a
party to this campaign which has been
inaugurated to eradicate tuberculo-ds.
in almost every locality of the United
Stntes are veterinarians capable of
rendering valuable services to live
stock owners In this great work, nud
tho cost of eradicating Is greatly re
iTuced by combating tho disease In Its
early stages. Yet oven In badly af
