ON TUB broad, oven-hot plain
of the Arizona desert lay a
man, stretched to the full of
his generous length In the
alisdow of spread of discolored can
vas. He was not suffering from hunger
or thirst. It was merely an off day
with Fred llulnes, and he was luxu
riating In Idleness, so fur as locality
and circumstances permitted. At their
mining camp, some distance away, his
purtner, Jack Winn, was shuffling
about In a pretense of activity. Hut

while they awaited delivery of some
mining machinery from Tucson.

Hut sight of the dictionary always

never glanced at It without feeling the
rehelllotis surge of old, half-submerged
longings, which sent the blood creep

crevices of his healthy countenance.

cover, In a flowing feminine band, were
the significant words, "From Alice."

She hsd returned his ring, at his re

OF PREGNANT EWES

form of self-polsonlng or autointoxi
cation among pregnant ewes Is liable
to occur and prove fatal. This dis

of the subject but a method of pre
vention ha been devised. The symp
toms shown by affected ewes are

backward, Is constipated and soon
goes down. It Is unubl to rise and

that sometime th tissues of tb
body sr stained a yellowish color, In
Almost Invariably the train of con
ditions and circumstances leading up
to the attack are close confinement
and lack of exerc!e, and prolonged,
excessive feeding of coarse, dry, bulky
constipating roughage, especially tim

vented by tnaklng pregnant ewe take
active exercise dally, keeping their
bowels and kidney active and avoid

ewe walk several miles dally to get

pounds of root dstly, avoid feeding

Fixing Value of Clover
and Alfalfa for Steers
There have been some feeding
trials with beef steers to determine
the value of clover as compared to
alfalfa. When steers were fed In
Indiana on silage, corn, and cotton
seed meat, clover hay wa found to
be fully equal to alfalfa bay, ton for
ton. Doubtless these result may
have been affected more or let by tha
fact that enough protein-rich concen
trates were fed to balance the ration
even though no legumes hsd been
fed. This probably resulted In the
loss of the advantage of alfulfa hay
In Its richer protein content How
ever, when fed In ration which are
low In protein, alfulfa has been found
to be worth more per ton than clover
buy of equal quality.
