Butter creek, following shearing,

will be of much benefit to range
conditions, however. Shearing will

Farm Electricity Aids
In Thwarting Thieves
The shotgun and the dog are giv
ing way to outdoor lighting sys
tems and electric burglar alarms
as protection against petty thieves
and night prowlers who cause such
heavy losses of farm property each
year. The agricultural engineering
department at Oregon State college
finds a strong demand for an alarm
or protection system which Is cheap
and effective in reducing this farm
Yard and flood lighting systems,
with a control switch at the owner's
bedside, often prove valuable in
frightening away night prowlers.
One well-known Oregon woman
uses a 100-watt bulb, fastened high
powerful reflector, fastened high
on the windmill. Another Oregon
farmer goes still further and has
mounted on his house top a large
search light similar to an auto
headlight. From inside the house
he not only can turn on the light
but can also turn the rays lnany
direction. Many farm women can
reach out from their bedsides and
make the electric lights gleam In
the poultry house.
Another popular method of re
ducing farm losses from theft Is the
burglar alarm system, which Ik
quite effective, especially when com
blned with flood lighting. When the
system is set for the night a bell
will ring In the house If any door
or window Is opened in the build'
ing or buildings thus protected.
The owner then snaps on the flood
lights and picks off the Intruder
with his twenty-two. Or, if the
owner prefers not to be disturbed,
he may locate the bell In the chick
