Worst Pests of Chicken Raiser Coccidiosis and Lice Cause of High Mortality of Fowls. ( By E. ALLEN LUTZ.) Newspapers, magazines, poultry fournals and other miscellaneous books dwell, perhaps, more on this subject than any other for the small isnd large poultry breeders and rats-ors, yet little Or no attention is paid .10 the profit- eating parasites, espe- Nally by the small or amateur poul-try MAD. The expert poultry advisers con- Aected with different state poultry de-partments and universities are sent Out each year for the express purpose of informing the poultry keeper how to ward off different chicken diseases, and coccidiosis and lice are the back-bone of every talk. The instructors generally attend all poultry shows as tar as possible and their contention is that 50 per cent of day- old chicks die before two weeks old through the glaring carelessness to handle these wo important subjects before they ; et beyond control. Coccidiosis Cure. Coccidiosis can be cured if started In time. It is really white diarrhea caused by lice, though sometimes it is caused by parasites picked up off the ground. Giving a dose of salts either in the drinking water or by force to flush the liver out good will prevent it from spreading, taking care to clean the premises thoroughly. Different poultry remedies may be Used to good advantage, but if neg-ected and left to spread will often- : imes wipe out half the flock before It is checked. Quick action at the Start will avoid the loss of day- olds. Watch the baby chicks from time of hatching, cleaning utensils daily and also coops in which you keep them and your battle against disease will be practically won. Treatment at the start will save not only the in-fected ones but the entire flock. The first signs of coccidiosis are: Lack of pep, standing around as though asleep with head up, and bowel movements white and loose, at times sticking to the vent. Control Lice. Lice may be controlled and com-pletely annihilated by the use of the different p8ultry sprays. One that is good is nicotine, easily obtainable and a " sure cure." For small chickens use nicotine diluted half and half with , voter, putting it on as you would whitewash or spraying just before toasting time. For the main flock use It straight. It will not burn or poi-so!!— elale; ltoaa_ ang fore chickens go to roost will en-tirely free them of parasites in one night. To tell results lay a newspa-per over the dropping board after ap- • lying the nicotine and if the hens have lice you will see them fall off. Cate application is sufficient, but it is a good plan to repeat it every month, thus assuring you a clean hen house and healthy, happy chickens. ' Cheap pipe tobacco used one pound to a hundred pounds of mash, mixed thoroughly, will improve the flock. as It rids the fowls of any intestinal worms they may have, and most of them have some though they may never be noticed. Hanging tobacco stems in a henhouse is claimed by some poultry raisers to keep the premises free from lice. Corn and Barley Right for Hogs on Alfalfa Corn and barley are the two best grains to be fed to pigs on alfalfa pasture though some oats or some mill feed can also be used to good advantage. If it is intended to make the growing pigs on alfalfa pasture ready for market at the earliest possi-ble date, they can be fed to very good advantage by putting corn or barley and oats or middlings and tankage each in separate compartments of a self- feeder and be allowed to eat as much as they care for each of the feeds. A good slop can be made by first snaking a dry mixture of 50 per cent ground corn or ground barley, 40 per cent middlings or reddog flour, and 10 per cent tankage, then mak-ing this into a swill by mixing it with skim milk, buttermilk, or water. It should not be necessary, however, to feed any swill to pigs receiving grain from a self- feeder while on al-falfa pasture, unless one is desirous of getting the most rapid gains possi-ble, rather than the most economical gains. Distinguishing Sex in Young Geese Difficult Distinguishing the sex in young geese causes considerable concern to Many and yet the differences in sex are quite marked. Take the bird in question and remove it from the flock, leave it loose in a pen and in sight of the flack and listen to the call. The female has a voice with a high note and of a double sound, while the male I, bass in sound and of a single note. Mate one male with two or three females. Confine the mating in a pen by themselves, away from all other geese and keep them by themselyes from December until spring when the breeding season commences. When once they are properly mated different roofings can be allowed to run togeth-er during the winter and they will separate out in the spring, each male mating with the same females as in the previous mating season. Wake Up at Last to Big Soy Bean Value Grown in United States for More Than Century. Although it has been more than a century since Soy beans were brought to the United States from Japan, it Is only in recent years that the value of the crop has been recognized, and the acreage in the Middle West and South has increased more rapidly than the acreage of any other crop. For several decades the beans were grown only as a feed for live stock. Recently, however, attention has been given to the extraction from the seed of a valuable oil, used not only in live stock feed and in human food, but commercially in the manufacture of paints and varnishes. Soy beana as a source of human food have al-ways been important in the Orient and there is a growing use of the products of the crop for food in this country. The soy bean fits well into crop ro-tations as a cash crop, the soy bean hay can profitably be fed to all farm animals, and the beans may be used in silage, cut and feed green, or pas-tured. The soy bean is a legume and Improves the soil in which it grows, by depositing nitrogen from the air. It is more acid- tolerant than some of the clovers and will grow where they will not grow. " Soy Bean Utilization," a new bulle-tin of the United States Department of Agriculture at Washington, D. C., covers several phases of the subject, giving the results of feeding experi-ments, and is distributed free by the office of information of the Depart-ment of Agriculture. Condition Tells Best Time to Cut Alfalfa It's time to renew the old argument about when to cut the first crop of al-falfa. L. E. Graber of the college of agri-culture, University of Wisconsin, says that quality of the crop should always be the guide, and that cutting based on stages of growth is not a good practice, because conditions vary in different seasons. When it is desirable to have the alfalfa last a long time, the best prac-tice is to cut it as late as possible without sacrificing quality. The root growth of alfalfa, accord-ing to Graber, is just as important as the top growth, and cutting should be done in a way that will stimulate a healthy root development. Alfalfa cut three or four times a year in Wiscon-sin will have a much retarded root growth. This means a poor alfalfa crop the, following seas- in. Bv cutting late to get good hay, the alfalfa plants are given a chance to develop roots and to produce good cutting the iol-lowing season. " Whether alfalfa should be cut in tenth bloom, full bloom, or no bloom at all is not the way to determine practices," Graber said. " Quality is a better guide than stage of growth." Careless Pickers Harm Trees Unnecessarily During fruit season there is always some damage done the trees by care-less pickers. Instead of neglecting the matter, go over the orchard the fol-lowing week, remove broken limbs and straighten those which have been drawn out of shape. Spots where bark has been stripped should be treated with a coat of lead and linseed oil. Any cavities found are cleaned out, down to healthy wood, then filled with a mixture made up of one part ce-ment to two parts sand. Just enough water is added to mix the materials. These repairs require but very little time and bother, and they are usually made when other farm work is not pressing. The cost of materials used is seldom more than a few cents, but the plan carefully followed adds years to the life of an orchard. Agricultural Hints ......•••••••••••• ■ •••• ■ ••••••••• ■ ••••• ■ ■ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• June 15 to July 15 is the principal season for sowing alfalfa. * * * Potash is needed on most sandy types of soil, also on muck and chaffy soils. * * * Order seeds and fertilizers at the same time. Then you will be ready for a flying start. * * * One can grow the green Italian broccoli now in the market at home as easy as anything. Order some seed. * * * Kill weeds in lawns and along fence rows before they go to seed. A great deal of hard work later will thus be prevented. * * * There is no safer investment than money spent in draining fertile soil on which crops suffer from too much moisture. * • * The ladybug is the grower's best friend. If you see one in your house this spring, trying to find a warm place to hide, resist the temptation to swat it. The ladybug eats plant lice. * * • Midsummer cultivation in the gar-den and orchard is too often neglect-ed. It is at this time that many spe-cies of weeds are making their seeds. Their control will lessen the labor of cultivation the following year. Improved Uniform International SundaySchool Les5on y V. P. D. FITZWATER, D. D, Mem- (' bear any.

GOLDEN TEXT— He went a little farther, and fell on his face, and Prayed, saying, 0, my Father, if it be possible, let this CUp pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. PRIMARY TOPIC-- Jesus Proves His Love for Us. JUNIOR TOPIC— Jesus Suffering for Us. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOP-IC— The Agony in the Garden. YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOP-IC— Gethsemane. I. Plotting the Death of Jesus ( vv. 1- 5). Christ with divine insight predicted not only the fact of His death, but its time and manner. The Jewish author-ities in secret conclave were plotting to silence His voice by putting him to death. In spite of themselves they were moving in the line of God's de-cree. II. Mary of Bethany Anoints Jesus ( vv. 6- 13). 1. The meaning of the act ( vv. 6, 7). ' Ms anointing occurred when Jesus was at meat in Simon's house. Mary had the keenest apprehension of all the disciples. By sitting at His feet In loving fellowship, she obtained a grasp of truth which none of the other disciples had. She saw that His body was to be broken and that His precious life was to go out. She en-tered Into fellowship with Ills suffer-ings and the joy of His resurrection. 2. The indignation of the disciples ( vv. 8, 9). The action of the disciples is in strange contrast with Mary's love. 3. Mary defended by Christ ( vv. 10- 13). Jesus could not allow His most ap-preciative disciple to lie under this censure, so He came to her rescue. As a result of Christ's defense, Judas is so stingingly rebuked that he hastens away to betray his Lord. III. Jesus Betrayed ( vv. 14- 30). 1. The bargain of betrayal ( vv. 14- 18). Satan so completely had the mas-tery over Judas that he sold his Lord a of a slave biitrayal— announced ( vv. 20- 25). While they were eating the Pass, over Jesus made this announcement. Who knows but that the reason for the announcement at this time was to give Judas an opportunity to repent? The sorrowful question in verse 22 indicates that the disciples did not seem to suspect one another, but di-rected personal attention to them-selves. IV. The Disciples Warned ( vv. 31- 35). This took place as they walked from the upper room to the garden of Geth-semane. Jesus plainly told them, " All ye shall be offended because of me this night," quoting Zechariah 13: 7 as proof. Though He told them of the darkness which was gathering, yet He gave them a glimpse of the coming light. He said, " After I am risen again I will go before you into Galilee." V. Jesus Praying ( vv. 36- 46). 1. The place— the Garden of Geth-semane ( v. 36). Gethsemane means oil press. It was a place some three- fourths of a mile east of Jerusalem, where oil was crushed out of the olives. 2. His companions ( v. 37). Peter, James and John. The same disciples who had been with Him on the Mount of Transfiguration . are per-mitted to go with Him into the deep shadow of the Garden. They slept, while He prayed. 3. Jesus sorrowing even unto death ( vv. 37, 38). The cause of His suffering was not primarily physical, but spiritual. The physical is not to be n:. ii:- but the burden of sin— the world's sin— was pressing heavily upon Him. He was being made sin for us ( II Cor. 5: 21). 4. The prayer itself ( v. 39). " 0 my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me." What was this cup? It was not prayer to be de-livered from the cross. The idea that He desired to escape from the cross and thus stop short of His redemptive work is not to be entertained. Re-demption through the sacrifice of Himself was the supreme purpose of Isis coming into the world. The holi-ness and perfection of His nature moved Him to shrink from the moon-tam of sin which was resting upon Him. Though the cup was bitter, He bowed in submission to the Father's will. An Important Power Man has one power in particular which is not sufficiently dwelt on. It is the power of making the world hap-py, or at least of so greatly diminish-ing the amount of unhappiness in it as to make quite a different world from what it is at present. The pow-er is called kindness.— F. W. Faber. Four R's Needed We need the four It's, not three: Reading, ' Biting, Itithrnetic and Re-ligion.— The Burning Bosh.

After a man has been married about so long he joins the peace- at-anyone in an argument. Probably the easiest way to ac-quire wealth is to inherit it.
