of what bo and his brother John tried
tn do In tlm war of catchluir a wood-
chuck: They had tried quite a number
of time to t-apture the animal, nut un
successfully. At last they decided to
drown him out. So, procuring four
palls, each took two, and they carried
wnter for two solid hours nnd noureil
It Into tho hole In the ground In which
tho said "chuck" had taken up his
abode. Getting tired, they sat down.
AfliT nhniil half an hour the wood-
cliuck cautiously left tho hole and de
liberately walked down to tho brook
anil took a lone drink of water, and
then Bcooted.'much to the disgust of the
two boys. lioston Hern id.

Care of Brood
Sows In Winter
For. early spring pigs select a well
grown sow pig, preferably eight or
more months old. if yon are Just start

In Itural New Yorker. Otherwise I as
sume you hare your tiest and most
prolific sows on hand. See that sbe has

Is a poor animal to breed from. Much
is said as to mating a rather coarse
sow with a boor finer In appearance. I
believe In mating the best Individuals
and certainly would not discard a sow
because she showed plenty of quality.
After mating the sow should have
more nitrogenous ration tlAn the fat
tening bogs. A few roots, or even
silage, will add bulk and variety to tbo
feed. Many breeders give a wisp of
clover bay dally, ami It Is surprhting
bow much of this a hog will eat. Keep
her In good eonditlon, but not overfat.
Ahoiit fourteen weeks after mating
shift her to the farrowing pen, which
riB or Tousa uerkshib bovts.
should be roomy, dry and warm. This
pen should be provided with a railing
or fender around the sides. A 2 by 0
scantling spiked securely to fixed blocks
six Inches high makes a good railing
and may save a good pig from being
lain on. The little fellows learn to
snuggle under these fenders and keep
out of danger. Borne breeders advocato
bedding heavily, claiming the sow win
lie away from the pigs and not make a
nest, as when she Is scrimped for bed
ding. However, we always bed spar
ingly with chaff or the sweepings from
the hay barn. We keep tbe pen dry
and clean.: A damp pen Is responsible
for many losses. J '
It Is advisable to watch a young sOw
with her first litter and be on hand to
render assistance if needed. If a sow
has successfully raised one litter we
let nature take Its course. A covered
pail of hot ashes will elevate the tem
perature of a bognen on a bitter Feb

pigs have sucked once they seldom get
chilled- Feed sparingly ror tne nrsr,

the capacity of the sow If the Utter 1$
Aire of Brood Sows. '
The length of time that a brood sow
may be profitably kept Is determined
by her capacity and power of giving
a regular supply of milk for her young.
Shortly, It may be said that she should
be kept as long as she breeds and milks
well, says American Cultivator. Con
tinued selection and retention of tie
best young sows for breeding purposes
Is one of the most effective methods of
Improving a herd of pigs. The opinion
held by many that pigs from tho first
litter of a young sow are inferior to
those from subsequent litters Is not
well founded. Quite as good pigs can''
be obtained from a young sow, pro
Tided she Is well grown before produc
ing her litter, as from the same sow at
a later date. The keeping of sows for
the production of pigs intended for
sale at an early age Is a system prac
ticed by many. Coarse boned, heavy
eared, 111 shaped pigs look larger at tho
age of eight weeks than well shaped
ones. Such animals do not, however,
meet the reauirements of the trade and
are therefore not so profitable to the
breeder. Many persons who feed pigs
are of the opinion that animals which
are plump and nicely shaped at an
early age do not grow to a good size.
No more mistaken view could possibly

Beauty ba form and appearance is

sow as a breeder.
The quality of a bow's pigs when sho

usefulness are over.
Best As to Fatten Cattle.
The central experiment station farm
at Ottawa, Canada, found by compar
ing 1,000 pounds live weight In tho
case of calves, yearlings, two and three
year olds that tho profit for each 1,000
pounds was: Calves, 931; yearlings,
f27; two-year-olds, 19.10; three-year-olds,
When all of the cattle of all ages
was purchased at 4 cents a pound and
sold fat at 6 cents a pound tbe profit
oa $1,000 Invested In feeding cattls
was: Calves, $557.80; yearlings, $284;
two-year-olds, $108.75; three-year-olds.
Value of Variety- I Batloa.
No single grain ration meets the sa
tire wants of tho young growing oq

the best results. Dust, cobs and other
