Dividing the 1 lock.
There nro n few thing that one must
get ready for tho flock's use In winter.
,Tho first thing to consider la apace,
aaya Michigan Farmer. Twelve square
feet Is tunplc room for a breeding ewe
In winter quarter. The flock cuu all
remain together until tho lambs begin
to nppenr. In aouio eases It 1 a good
tiling to divide tho cwea that nro about
to Iamb from the flock. Sometime the
flock uiuat be divided Into two or more
classes. A good division would bo the
inalu flock, tho ewea thnt evidently

ed. These divisions may be best made
by use of panel or by tho placing of
tho feed racks, l'ermancnt divisions
are not advisable alnco tbe areas of the
epacos will be constantly changing.
nations For Stallions.
Itaw eggs afford a very nourishing,
cooling and easily digested feed for
talllons when doing a largo business
Jn the atud. A half dozen may be bro
ken nnd stirred Into the grain ration
eight and morning to great advantage
In many canes. The grain ration may
be somewhat diminished when egga are
fed. Such a ration adds somewhat to
!the expense or cost of keep, but a
tingle uddltlonal foal will more than
pay cost of all the eggs that any stal
lion will require during the entire sea
on. Scours In rlas.
A common ailment among young pigs
la scours. Llko thumps, It la brought
on by too much rich food, augmented
by dump, chilly boddlng. There are
many ao called remedies for scours,
such as sulphur, parched corn or parch
ed flour, etc. Perhaps the best treat
ment la to shut off the swill bucket,
which Is usually the direct cause, keep
tbe bedding dry and give plenty of
fre'b air, freah water and dry feed.

Truth About Kormans.
Thu use of the word Norman ns ap
plied to the draft horse has ls-eu com
mon In tho rnlted rilati-s for over half
a century. This U due largely to the
fact that early liiiortcr gave that
name to draft horses brought over
from Normandy, France. However,
there Is no such breed In France, and
tho use of the word Is Incorrect. The
l'ercberon Is a distinct brifd and is
ao regardiil by the French government
and Is protected by the government
and u stud tHik association. There ure
several other distinct draft breed in
Fram e, ns the Houlonnals, Ilreton, 11
cardy and 1'olton, but there 1 no Nor
man breed. Most of the horses brought
to America from France of tho draft
sort are 1'erchcrous, but they are very
often corelessly referred to a Nor
man or l'erchcrou-Noruiau. Horses
of tho draft aort ihut aro from France,
but are not Fercherons, muy be regis
tered in tho French draft stud book of
Uil country, but not In the l'ercberon

Knttrnlns Hoses on Cottonseed Meal.
In futteulug hog on cottouseed meal,
aays Farm and Unncli, don't add any
wheat brun, but corn chops will bo ab
solutely necessary. Tbo wheat bruu Is
too tilling lu lta effect and not rich
eiiougu lu nourishing mntcrlal for fat
tening hogs. L'so one part of cotton
seed meal to four parts of corn chops,
well soured, and give as a thin slop.
Vhent Ilrnn Good For Foals.
Itrau In very aultnblo as a supple
mentary concentrated food for weaned
foals and young horses, says Farm
Progress. There Is nothing better than
a llttlo brau for mixing with the crush
ed oats when foals are being brought
ou to aolld food, brau being easily di
gested by a foal when the latter Is able
to deal with aolld food. In the case of
sick horses and those thnt are conva
lescent tlio Inclusion of some bran In
their diet proves very beneficial. Ou
account of Its palatablllty bran tempts
the appetite of sick horses more easily
than other dry foods.
Ration For tha llor.e.
From ten to twelve pouuds of oats,
divided Into three feeds, ahould be suffi
cient concentrates for tho carriage horse
for one day's feeding, says Farm Jour
nal. From ten to twelve pounds of hay
should bo allowed In order to bring the
total weight of the ration within the
limit of twenty to twenty-two pounds.
Iiran mashes, fed once or twice a week,
Lave a cooling effect upon the system.
Tart of the hay may be cut and mois
tened before feeding, 4he remainder be
ing fed long, as tho carriage horse has
plenty of time for masticating hla food,
tlonarbnara For Hora.a.
Fodder corn, thickly grown, so that
only small nubbins form, and cured so
there Is no dust, Is one of the beat
kinds of roughage for horse feeding.
For stallions, Idle horses, brood mares
and growing colts corn forage of good
Quality, cured right. Is one of the very
best and most economical substitutes
for timothy hay. Farm Journal.
Feed For Fattening; I.amba,
Dry corn gives better results than
soaked corn for sheep, owing to the
better secretion of saliva la eating the
dry grain. Oats prove a satisfactory
ration when given to fattening lambs,
but It requires about 23 per cent mors
oats than corn for a given gain. It
requires about twice as much corn as
bran for lambs. Hoots ahould bo fed
In combination with grain. A. ratios
of equal parts corn and oats or two
parts oats to one of corn, fed with
roots, Is an economical ration for fat

a soil tbat Is especially adapted by na
ture for good roads, aays Dr. Dwlglit
B. Moore of Jameatown, N. D., In Atito
Advocate and Country Honda. As ft
general thing, very little attention Is
paid to the subject of good ronds la
Only exceptionally In a wet aeaon
Is there much necessity for the problem
to be considered sorlonsly from the
standpoint of traffic and lical transpor
tation. Tbe aubjects of tho advantage
of wide tires, of the natural curves
which the roads ought to take In order
to facilitate the baullng of heavy loads
and of a long even pull over compara
tively level ground. In preference to
abort steep ascents In a atralxht direc
tion toward the gral, are very little con
sidered or thought of apparently by the
farmers, the very class of people who
should be most deeply Interested In
such questions. '
Even on these prairie, a slight Im
petus was given to the good road move
ment by the adoption of the bicycle.
The use of tho bicycle has somewhat
died out as a recreation among people
of wealth, culture and education, and
as a consequence tbe use of It has ceas
ed to be so much of a factor In the cre
ation or preservation of good roads.
Tbe automobile has been more than a
substitute as an Incentive to Interest In
the subject of good roads everywhere
among that class of people who are
known as "bustlers" and who make
things "get along some" when they
want to obtain any desired object. The
probability is that a dozen automobile
enthusiasts In any community will do
more In accomplishing the creation and
preservation of highways presenting a
smooth, round, bard surface and few
difficult grades at all seasons of the
year than G00 farmers, although the
latter should be more strictly Interest
ed In the same problem. But the farm
ers seem to lack organization and Just

how to go about It to obtain the objects
desired, or else they really have not
considered the subject enough to get
enthusiastic over lt In other words, I
think the diffusion of the automobile
throughout the country going to be
the principal factor In the furtherance
of the movement in favor of good high
ways. Of course a campaign among the
farmers ought never to be neglected.
They use the roads more than any oth
er class of people, and good roads are
more vital problems with them than
with any other class. Those Interested '
In the subject of good roads, therefore,
ought never to neglect an opportunity
to hammer away at the mass of the
people on the subject and convince
them by every possible means tbat the
problem of good highways for pedes
trians, horsemen, bicycles and auto
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 schools, so that every
boy might understand how important.
In a commercial way, this subject Is

local condition of the roads In his Im
The demonstration by machines, etc., .
of tbe making of good roads by special
trains going through the country and
stopping here and there In different lo
calities Is, of course, an excellent prop
osltlon, but lt would take a century If
this were the only means to accomplish
anything In tbe way of results. Tho
country is too vast.
The agricultural department puts out
a large quantity of literature on that
subject which is accessible to any on
baying Interest In it and who will send
for It, but very few of the class of peo
ple whom lt is desired to reach know
about lt 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
of the farmer's paper, periodicals and
popular magazines which are every
where reaching tbe homes of the 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 aide of the good roads movement.
