Feed-saving programs from the agricultural colleges
stress the importance of getting rid of rats, cattle grubs,
lice, worms and other insects and parasites that may sap
an animal’s vitality and interfere with efficient feed use.
Mrs. Swift is ill at the home of her
son-in-law Ed Bertram on Alder
street in Mill City.
It is reported
that she would welcome her friends
to stop in for a visit.
Dr. Hess products can help to avoid feed waste from those
causes. We especially recommend the following:

U. S. D. A. formula. Beef cattle freed of grubs gain weight
faster, cows give more milk.
POWDERED LOUSE KILLER—dust it on cattle, horses,
