BODY RACKED WITH PAIN
No other bodily suffering is equal to that produced by the pain of Rheu?
inatism. When the poisons and acids, which cause this disease, become in
trenched in the blood there is hardly any part of the body that is not at
fected. The muscles become sore and drawn, the nerves twitch and sting,
the joints inflame and swell, the bones ache, every movement is one ol
agony, and the entire body is racked with pain. Rheumatism is brought on
by indigestion, stomach troubles, torpid Liver, weak Kidneys and a general
inactive state' of the system. The refuse matter instead of passing oS
through nature's avenues is left to sour and form uric acid, and other acrid
poisons which are absorbed into the blood. Rheumatism does not affect

For Driving Hogs.
This is another idea which the one
man farmer will find exceedingly use
ful if he has to drive hogs for any
purpose. It needs but one experience
with the beasts to convince any man of
the difficulty In making a hog go where
desired. The .hurdle described will help
wonderfully In this work. Use slats
of one by three material and make a
hurdle two and one-half feet high and
about four feet long. Make it of light
weight material, so that it "may be
easily tinndled. In either end piece,
at top and bottom, hocks may be placed
so that the hurdle may be attached to
posts if required at any time. Then
make haqdles to make it convenient
in manipulating it One should be oil
the center upright near the top and
one on either side of the upright in
about the middle. These handles are
made by fashioning a strip of wood
large enough to get hold of, and then
nailing It on to a block and through
the hurdle material. Made light, in
the manner described, one can drive
a number of hogs with ease and also
ward off the quarrelsome boar if a
member of the herd. In the illustra
tion the small cut at the left shows
the completed handle and the one at
the right the manner of fashioning the
bolt through the block of wood, and

Exhibiting Fruits at Fairs.
One of the handsomest and most at

which comprised practically the whole

were neatly arranged on a large table
about twenty feet square and In such
a manner that the combination of va

HURDLE FOR DBIVINO HOGS.
By far the most serious task in rais
ing corn Is the matter of husking it in
the field. Up to date no practical ma
chine adapted to this purpose has ap
peared. Many have been tried, but
they usually fall short In some import
ant particular. None of them has be
come popular, and a fortune awaits
the man who perfects a thoroughly
practical corn husker, which will be
as successful relatively as the modern
husker is for corn fodder, says Orange
Judd Farmer. When corn is to be
husked direct from the standing corn,
it should be allowed to mature quite
thoroughly, particularly If it is of a
variety with large ears and large ,cob,
containing a high percentage of mois
ture. This must be determined by ex
amination. Some seasons husking be
gins the latter part .of September,
while in others it is not safe to begin
husking until the middle or end of Oc
tober. The time will also depend
largely upon the variety. Early ma
turing kinds have small cobs, and they
can be husked much earlier than late
maturing and large-ear varieties. Corn
when first placed in the crib contains
13 to 3o or 40 per cent of moisture. A
common practice in the great corn
States Is to start through the field
marking a "down" row. Husk two
rows to the left of the wagon and the
one row that is under it. . Go around a
good-sized "land" in tills manner. The
next time through the field and every
succeeding time thereafter have the
team straddle the last husked row
next the corn that has not been
husked. This will prevent the neces
sity'of picking up a down row each
time, and will enable the husker to do
his work. The ordinary wagon box
will hold from twenty-five to thirty
bushels, When the corn is exception
ally good, a skillful husker will be able
to more than fill one wagon box in
half a day. The capacity of a box
may be increased by putting on addi
tional sideboards. On the right side of
the wagon box it is desirable to place
one or two extra boards to act as
bump boards. The husker will not
need to use so much care in throwing
in his work. A good husker so gauges
the distance from the row in the wag'
on box that It is not necessary for him
to look where he throws his ear.
World's Milk Prodnctlon.
It is estimated that the total weight
of cows' milk produced In the world
is 20,400,000 hundredweight, distrib
uted as follows: United States, 0,100,
000 hundredweight, Russia 3,500,000;
Germany 3,000,000, France 200,000,
England 200,000, Austria 1,700,000,
Italy 1,450,000, Canada 1,300,000, Hol
land 1,200,000, Sweden and Norway
800,000, Switzerland 700,000, Denmark
000,000, Belgium 000,000, Australia
550,000, Spain 500,000 and Portugal
500,000. The production of milk in
Europe is 18,450,000 hundredweight
from 45,000,000 cows. The number of
milch cows In the world is 03,800,000
15,040,000 In the United States and
10,000,000 in Russia. There are only
six head of horned cattle in Spain to
each 2 acres of Cultivated land, while
in France there are thirty-four and in
England fifty-six. This shows the
poor condition of cattle breeding lu
Spain, and explains the constant in
crease in the price of butcher's meat
for public consumption.
The old method of cramming corn
into a steer regardless of whether or
not he digests it, depending on hogs
to pick up the undigested corn, is a
poor as well as an old method. To put
on good flesh and to put it on fast a
steer should digest thoroughly all the
food that he takes into his stomach.
The food should be prepared carefully
in order that perfect digestion should
take place. Less corn and more en
silaged foods should be used in fin
ishing a steer for the market, for the
old idea that corn is the only food that
will finish a steer properly is demon
strated to be a mistaken one by ex
periment stations conducted by respon
sible men selected by the government.
Cost of Killing Silos.
The cost of filling silos was esti

being fifty-six cents.
Why Winter Chicks Die.
The English poultry expert, E.
Brown, after several seasons of ex
periment, has concluded that the
broiler chicks die chiefly during the
first twenty days from want of exer
cise. By using dry feeds Instead Of
wet feeds and making the chickens
scratch for what they eat, the deaths
were reduced to a small number.
