which the roads ought to take In order
to facilitate the hauling of heavy loads
and of a long even pull over compara

abort steep ascents In a straight direc

sidered or thought of apparently by the
farmers, the very class of peop!e who
should be most deeply Interested In
Even on these pralrts a slight Im
petus was given to the good road move
ment by the adoption of the bicycle.
The tise of the bicycle has somewhat
aUed out as a recreation amors people
f wealth, culture and education, and
as a consequeEce the use of It has ceas
ed to be so much of a factor tn the cre
ation or preservation of good roads.
The automobile ban been more than a
substitute as an Incentive to Interest i:
the subject of gvo.l r.istds everywhere
among that class of people wh r.v
known as hustlers' and who make
tilings "get along some" when tto.
want to obtain any desired object. The
probability Is that a dozen automobile

preservation of highways presenting a

Low to go ntxiut it to obtain the objects i
desired, or else they really have not j
considered the subject enough to get j
enthusiastic over it. In uther words. I
think the diffusion of the automobile j
throughout the country ii gjing to be
the principal factor in the furtherance ;
of the movement In favor of good high-,
Of course a campaign among the
farmers ought never to be neglected.
They use the roads more tjan any oth
er class of people, and good roads are
more vital problems with them tliua
with any other class. Those interested
in the subject of good roads, theref jre,
ought never to neglect an opportunity
to luii'.rr.er away at the mass of tlie
people on the subject and convince
them by every po.:s,ble means that the
problem of good highways for pe-.Ie -triaus,
horsemen, bicycles and aut
mobiles is one of the most essential fac
tors in the upbuilding of the wealth
and property of the country. I think
Instruction on the subject ought to be
given in public schools, and especially
In the country schiuh, so that every
boy might understand how Important.
In a commercial way, this subject is
and how to go about it to Improve the
local condition of the roads in his im
mediate neighborhood. j
The demonstration by machines, etc..
of the making of good roads by special j
trains going through the country and j
stopping here and there In different lo
calities Is, of course, an excellent prop
osition, but it would take a century if
tills were the only means to accomplish
anything In the way of results. The
country is too vast
The agricultural department puts out
a large quantity of literature on that
subject which is accessible to any one
baring Interest In It and who will send
for It, but very few of the class of peo
ple whom It Is desired to reach know
about It or will take the trouble to send
to the department for literature. In
struction upon the subject ought to be
forced upon them through the columns J
of the farmer's paper, periodicals and
popular magazines which are every
where reaching tho homes of t! west
ern farmer at this time. No political
speech, Fourth of July oration. Memo
rial day address or Thanksgiving ser
mon ought to be considered or allowed
to be delivered unless It contained a
good rousing paragraph or two on the
right side of the good roads movement
Maintenance of Gravel Roads.
' In order to maintain a gravel road In
good condition It la wen to beep piles
of gravel alongside at frequent Inter
vals, so that the persons Who repair
the road can get the material without
going too far for it As soon as ruts or
holes appear on the surface some of
this good fresh material should be add

irofrssor Foule of the Virginia fi
pcrtmcut station recently ina the fol
lowing report of a cattle feeding tost;
During last winter nu Interesting ex
periment with sixty head of beef cattle
Mas conducted at the experiment sta
tiou. The twenty cattlo fed slia.
made nti average gain of 1.40 pound
per head per day. the twenty cattle
fed timothy hay 1.10 pound per head
per day and the twenty cattle fed
shredded com atover, A7 iiouiifl per
head iht O.ay.
There was thus a difference of oue
thinl to one-half pound of gain per
head per day In favor of the silage fed
cattle. The silage fed cattle finished off
the best and showed more quality thau
the others nud lu any discriminating
market would have brought a consider
ably higher price.
The strong prejudice against using
silage for the winter feeding of beef
cattle Is hard to understand, for It has
bceu fully demonstrated that silage fed
cattle will kill out quite as well as the
dry fed cattle, and the meat Is, general
ly speakiug. of a superior quality.
Whereas the silage was all eaten up.
13.3 of the stover and 4.1G per cent of
the Lay were wasted.
The gains show that the cattle fed
were not of a satisfactory quality. In
previous experiments a pound of grain
has been made for a consumption of
three to four pounds of grain. The
silage fed cattle in this test consumed
C.54 pounds of grain for a pound of
gain, the stover fed cattle 11.18 pounds,
or about twice as much, and the hay
fed cattle S.tX) pounds, or 2.45 pounds
more per day than the silage fed cattle.
With l etter bred animals fed In pre
vious experiments, the average gain
per head lias often been 2.18 pounds
throughout the six r.i.Mi'hs" feeding pe
riod, which again testifies to the un
satisfactory quality of the animals fed
In this tet.
Impress of the Shorthorn. ,
Our cattle today would have been Im
mensely more uniform, fully as valua
ble and probably more useful as a
whole if none except Shorthorns bad
ever been Imported as Improvers.
writes R. D. Koss in Breeder's Ga
zette. The fact that with the excep
tion of a very few herds the American
Shorthorn has been bred for beef for a
century, and by beef men, and at this
day does persist in putting out cows
with some value for milk indicates a
milky way in the Shorthorn firmament
Commenting on the above, the editor
of the Gazette says, "The excellence
claimed lor our so called 'natives' of
the present day is generally to be cred
ited to a dash of the blood of some im
proved breed, usually the Shorthorn,
which has been the pioneer cosmopol
itan improver of bovine stocks."
Fat Draft Horses.
Large, heavy draft horses bring more
money than lighter ones. For this rea
son a great many dealers and handlers
of drafters try to get them as fat us
possible before ofleriug them for sale.
Lfi.scrimiuatiug purchasers, however,
are very quick to notice the difference
between fat and muscle.
A corn fed, closely stabled draft
Lorse is in very much the same coudi- ;
tiou as a fat ox and is of little more
service for hard work. In buying such
a horse the new owner has a Job on j
his hands to work the fat off and de- i
velop muscle enough to make a valu
With proper feed and a reasonable
amount of exercise it Is Just as easy
and just about as cheap to cover a
horse's bones with good healthy mus
cle as it Is to stable him, feed him corn
and get him hog fat. The muscular
horse gives satisfaction and helps sell
the next one. Farmers Advocate.
Nam of O. I. C. Swine.
The O. I. C. hogs are simply what
their name (Ohio Improved Cheaters)
implies. They constitute one of the
numerous pure bred strains of Chester
Whites which are recorded In the Ohio
Improved Chester White Record asso
ciation. It is from the Initials of this
title that the name O. I. C. Is derived.
There have been no less than five rec
ord associations founded for the re
cording and protection of this breed.
Including the one above mentioned, the
others being the American, the Na
tional, the International and the Stand

tells a story of a New York regiment,
many of whose members were recruit

to post a sentry to preserve order.
A big, husky Howry recruit of pugil

outside and given special orders to see
that quiet reigued and, above all
things. If trouble came his way, not to

Soon a general row began, growing in
