6 • I MQRE ABOUT THE IMP0RTAN6E OF HAVIN6 , PUREBRED LIVESTOCK ON THE FARM •raB lOliA. DAILY REGISTER, MONDAY. EVENING, ;DE CEMBER 11.1911.: Prof. Wheeler of the State Agricultural College Warns' Breeders Against the Use of Grade Sires in Attempting to Build up Their Herds-Purebred Sires Valuable, to Any Community. f T HE TTonderfuI rosuUs coming from a few crosses; of purebred animals of bigb individuality is often tlie very cause of tlie final failure of this system of Improvement. Tho begin: aer can hardly rcslkt tbe temptation to aave from the herd some promls- dng girade pig, calf or colt for breeding purposes because of his fine Individuality Inherited from his purc- ibred sire. This is no excuse for his - use as a sire. He \k but a living example of the great plower of the pure- -lired animal for Improvement. No matter liow good hb may he as an individual, he Is most certain to be Wklng In that prepotency as a breed-e^ 'Which Is BO es&»itial to. the general Improvement and up-buildlng of <the herd or flock. It should never Ibe forgotten that, although the half or three-quarter blood animal may .look as good as his sire, and perhaps actually be as good for market pur- Sfoiea, be la worthless for breeding The facts should never be lost sight of in the woric of building up the farm stock. Where an Individual Introduces a beef or dairy sire of high character Into a community. Its usefulness Is often greatly restricted because of the limited number of females In the herd and the fact that long 4)efore he has become too ol*^ for service he must be disposed of to avoid Inbreeding. There is too little encouragement given to the man who has ambition enough to bring a high class sire Into the small herd he may possess. It should be seized upon as a spUndld opportunity by bis neighbors. They should be glad of the chance to pay breeding fee of two or three dollars in order to secure the use of such sire and so be able to discard the scrub or grade and begin some real li\'e atock improvement. Even the renter, with little or no capital and with but a small amount of llv« stock. BATTLER CAVE IHi M(»lTAliA Peopl* of Nel0hborhe6d Kill ^90 Snakn In Their Efforts at *^ Extarmlnatlon.

With the use of grade sires as herd headers, all improvement ceases except what little may be aecured by the slow method of selection. Tha grade Is often used because he Is 60 much cheaper than the purebred sire. He Is really dearer at any yrlce, for the results In one crop of offspring will often far more than malce up tho difference In cost •~1 The' use of the grade sire saved froia the herd or, flock Is almost sure to bring about more or less In-breed- l&g, which. In itself, is a very undesirable practice. Loss of size and vigor and Inferior 'powers of reproduction are almost sure to follow. It is also true that no pnount of care in the use of improved systems of •trieedlng will overcome the results of poor feeding and improper care and management Liberal feeding and proper care and management must -go hand in hand with good breeding. can take advantage of such en oppor tunlty OS this. The payment of a reasonable fee is even cheaper than actually owning a high class sire. -Many more high class sires would be introduced by the owners of small herds if such encouragement and cooperation could be assured. Such sires are sometimes passed by for the scrub because of the saving of two or three dollars In the servlcefee. Such a communitcy must be educated to appreciate the value Of a really high class sire as an improver of the farm stock. "Where the fullest use Is made of such an animal In a co;nmu- nlty, the results will soon he ajipar- ent.- More pure-bred sires will bi' Introduced, and if these new introduc' tions are of the same breed and ••ype, the locality will soon have a rci)iita tlon as a center for the production of that particular kind of stock. The exchange of sires will be facilitated and a ready market secured for surplus. JNSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING CEMENT WALK f^Whst's the use of walking around JJn the mud? Any farmer can build a - cement wolk, says E. B. McCormick, iprofesBor of mechanical engineering in th«^ Kansas State Agricultural Col- liega. j[n inexpensive grade of cement Valk ionld be laid to the barn, the •heds, tho garden, and the well. jThlnk of the housecleanlng that :Wouldn't have to be done. ) Here Is the method Professor Mc_ 'Cormlek gives. First got these tools jtf 7oa> don't have them already: A Ishoyet hoe, mud-box, hammer, saw, .aailt and boards for the form of the jsldewalk. A screen for the sand used 'in tha top layer, a heavy sledge to break the stones, and a tamper can boused to good,' advantage. The yitakea holding the boards on the side 'oflhe walk should be placed on the .. ioutaide .1 Be sure the stakes will not -slip. The form should be built before the mixing is begun. Then the iwalk is ready to be laid. nrst, place a sub-layer of cnished fetbne or cinders, two inches or more - <ih depth, depending upon the probable - dampness under the walk. This sub- :T>a8e should be wet down and well^ ; tampered. The main body of the cement Is to be mixed according to the following proportions by volume: V 1 part- cement 2% or 3 parts sand ..and 5 parts crushed stone, when -'*etone is used. If stones are not avail; abl^ use 1 part cement and 5 or 6 Mparts sand. This layer should he three 'i nof four inches thick. The top coat ' ' ioonslsts of 1^ part cement 1 or 1^4 • : Iparts sand, and should be between r-i^ of an inch and 1 Inch thick. iTfais makes a five-inch walk which is j; iheavy enough for all ordinary pur- •_jpo8os. In fact, a five-inch floor In the jvjjnechanical engineering, building at ^ -Jltte Kansas Agricultural College holds |: [the weight of an eight ton engine. I I "The/dry sand and cement should l|. !%e Inixed until the mixture has an II color. Add the roicks and suffl- ^ «f4Bt water to make the mixture pack irrtl- without much Umplng. It Is to wet the crushed stone and alao the mUed sand and cement be- U Cars adding the stone. The top layer, 'r iibreA the same as the first, but omit^ '. [Oic ^'B stone, must be phiced oa tko first layer soon after it Is laid to insure a good union between the two coats. Using a wet top layer will cause a delay In smoothing this coat, but the walk will be much stronger. The wet mixture also gives a rough surface, which prevents the wslk becoming slippery. Keep oft your walks until they arc thoroughly dry. - They should not be used for three or four days after lln-y arc made. Crossings should stand two. weeks before a heavy load Is hauled across them. In hot weather, the walks should be protected from the sun. This can he done by wetting the empty sacks and placing them on the wolk. or by putting boards on the walk and pilling earth on top. The cost of a cement walk varies with the price c< cement, sand, stone, labor, and width and depth of walk. The average bid is between fifteen and twenty cents a square foot for a five-inch walk. Of course this includes the cost of labor and a profit. IJy building tho walks when farm work is not crowding, the farmer can save paying cash for the labor. HOW TO PRESERVE YOUR CIDER I te The best way to preserve elder is to "heal it to a temperature of from 170 to 180 degrees. Keep that temperature for about ten minutes, when tlie cider should be bottled In airtight bottles and stored away In a cool place. The heat kills the bacteria which cause cider to get "hard." Sweet cider, kept on sale, generally is preserved by pse of benzoate of soda, which does not change the taste. Apples of w^fch cider Is to be made Bhotild be ^Iher good ones or culls with the rotten spots cut out. After the elder is made It is better to'^strain It 4>efore putting- It away or using it Green or early apples do not make as good cider as fall and winter apples. Winter apples conuin about 2.5 per cent more sugar. Fresh cider contains about 85 per cent water, 12 to l'> par cent solid matter, and a ilttJe mallo add, which la the natural acid ot the applet A posse of extermination was or* ganlsed and at least 2»0 rattlesnakes o.f all sizes were killed la RatUesnake Oulcb, near Three For^s, yesterday. The source of the Bundreds of the reptiles, frogi which the gulch takes Its name, was found in the shape of a small cave, discovered by accident by Amos Smith. Mr. Smith noUfled his friends in Three Forks and nearly a hundred men and boys proceeded to the scene, armed with aU variety of weapons. For three hours the battle raged and at Its close 290 rattlers were counted strewn on the ground, and not a man had been bitten. The reptiles were slightly dormant, owing to the coolness, but when aroused would sally forth from the cave. Clubs, shotguns | and rlfies were used ^n the slaughter. When no more snakes emerged from I the cave a repeating shotgun was dis-; charged Into it and about fifty more. were dragged forth. i Some of the specimens killed meas- ; ured more than three feet long, while [ others were only a few Inches In i length. Some of the larger ones will be stuffed and placed on exhibition. | For years the. farmers In the neigh-' borbood have been bothered by the' great number of rattlesnakes. The gulch of that name was literally alive with them. The den discovered by Mr. Smith Is on the People's ranch. After cleaning out this den tt was decided to continue the crusade and there are a number of men and boys scouring the community for more snakes.—^Bozeman correspondence Anaconda Standard. LIGHTS UP DARK PLACES New lllumlnatino Pistol Has Advantages Over Searchlight for Night Attacks. During the recent extended maneu vers of the German army there wero many night attacks, in which use waa made of the newly Introduced lllumW natlng pistols. According to the new regulations, these are .to be employed wherever the configuration of the land makes their use preferable to that of the ordinary searchlight The machinery necessary for the use of the latter device is very Inconvenient and especially In rolling and otherwise dlffl- ctilt country, where the main maneuvers take place.-it cannot be used to advantage. The illuminating pistols have not this disadvantage, as they are easily transported. Further, the searchlight is useless la valleys and deep-lying plains, as their rays ehoot over these and leave them apparently in still deeper shadow. Fbr this reason, such valleys aerve as excellent covers, at night against the searchlights. The Illuminating pistols have done away with this advantage of shelter, as the cartridges which they throw light up the deepei^ and darkest gullies. There are two different sorts of cartridges, producing respectively white and red light. The white ones servo for eignaUng purposes between widely separated commands or divisions, even where the distance between them Is several kilometers. The illuminating cartridges develops a light that makes everything within 200 meters (660 feet) visible, and lasts eight to ten seconds.—Scientific Amer- ieaa. We Substitute for the Potato. ^ e scarcity of the Irish potatoMn the United States calls attention to its Asiatic substitute, the dasheen. Fbr all practical purposes, the dasheen, which Is seldom larger than a hen's egg, though more prolific than the potato, may be regarded as a species of Irish potato. For ages this tuber in various forms has been cultivated in Japan and China. Planted In the spring, it is gathered six months la ter and flourishes best In lands like those of our southern states upon the gulf. The United States government lias been conducting' experiments in South Carolina, with the new tuber, and ojir agents report that it yields from twelve to fifteen tons to the acre, while its edible protein averages 86 per cent of the who^ root, as against the 80 per cent of the potato. It is not improbable that the next few years will see the cultivation of the new tuber In this country to a large extent, especially throughout the south. Prevent Flirting. Dr. Robert C.

Primarily they appeal to men because of the comfort and the real rest they give the eyes," said Dr. Pail, but It remained for a young married woman to give another reason.
