(Prepared by the United States Depart ment or Agriculture.) Feeding cows for several years, ac cording to the . commonly accepted standard with little or no additional pasture, reduced the milk yield much below the optimum, It was found by experiments at the government farm at BeltsvllJe, Md. This condition may be corrected by giving the animal a dry period of two months, and feeding during that period a ration containing legume hay and grain with a hlrli phosphorus content, with three or four times the nmoiint of protein re- W " ,viv ess Cows Thrive on Rich Pastures. quired for maintenance, and two or three times the total nutriment. The milk yield in the subsequent lactation erlod may sometimes be doubled by this treatment. The results of the experiments are given In Bulletin 945, "The Influence of Calcium and Phosphorus in the Food on the Milk Yield of Dairy Cows." In the case of cows of which the m!1k yield has been reduced by several years' standard feeding, as followed at Beltsvllle, a greatly increased yield ran be brought about by feeding "alternated rations with phosphate" during the dry period. Tills is taken to mean that the ordinary rations are more likely to be deficient in one or both of the principal bone-building elements than In any other constitu ent. Bulletin 1)45, "The Influence of Cal cium nnd Phosphorus In the Food on the Milk Yield of Dairy Cows," may be had upon application to the Divl slon of Publications, United States De partment .of Agriculture. HELP WAR ON TUBERCULOSIS Farmers in Vicinity of Grove City, Pa., Sign Requests to Have Herds Tested. The community at Grove City, Pa., where the dairy dl vision of the United States Department of Agriculture Is carrying on community extension work. Is active in tuberculosis eradica tion. The owners of several hundred herds signed requests to have their herds tested and accredited; In fact It appears that practically all the patrons of the Grove City creamery soon will have tlieJr animals tested. This work originated with the bull associations operating In that vicinity; but It now extends throughout the county, and even to the two adjoining counties. An Interesting feature of the situa tion Is the springing up of the Grove City Accredited-Dairy-Cattle Show and Sales association, composed of owners of accredited herds who wish to take advantage of the fact that all their herds are clean, to co-operate In Improvement, and sell all their stock on that basis. One member who has a clean herd sa-s that after his herd was tested he sold some cows for $300 each, hfch, previously, he would have parted with for half that amount. lie had actually offered them for 5150 prior lo the test. MAKING FEED FROM SAWDUST Wisconsin Cows Keeping Up Weight and Milk Yield and Show No III Effects From Diet, Hydrollred sawdust as a part of a ration for cows Is apparently giving satisfactory results in Wisconsin. The forest service of the United States Department of Agriculture reports that cows at the agricultural college of that state are doing as well on a ration consisting of one-third sawdust s they did when their feed was only one-fourth wood meal. That Is to say, they are keeping up their weight and their milk production and show no III effects from the diet. The bureau of animal Industry la considering the proposal of the forest service laboratory to start feeding trials with dairy animals In which the wood product will fortn a part of the ration and the tests will extend for an entire year at least. The hyro-Ilzed-xvood feed for these cows will be made at tlie laboratory. , So far all the stock feed has been made from whlte-plne sawdust.

HUMIDIFIER IS EASILY MADE Mason Preserving Jar of Quart Sire Placed on Back of dash Underneath Hood Will Supply Moisture Needed. Almost every man who owns or has run an automobile lias noticed that his engine actuallv runs better in the very early morning or late at night, just after the dew has fallen. This Is due to tlie amount of "moisture In the air. Why contend with the frequent skipping of the engine and the loss of power due to the hot dry air of a summer day, when with a few hours time and a little expense you can manufacture an apparatus which will give yon the moist cold air that gives life to your engine? Preserving Jar Is Useful. A mason preserving jar of the quart size should be mounted on the back of the dash underneath the hood of the engine. This may be done by the use of an oil-can holder for a shelf and a couple of band iron straps to hold the glass jar In place. In the metal top, about one Inch apart, drill two holes, one with a quarter-Inch drill and one with a three-eighths-inch drill. Solder Into the quarter-Inch hole a small nipple having on its end a small NUT coffin ruet Iron Straps Fasten the Humidifier to the Dash Beneath the Hood A Copper Pipe Runs From It to the Carburetor. union joint such as Is used with flexible copper tubing. A piece of one-elghth-lnch brass or iron pipe one-half inch shorter than ite height of the jar should be thred-sd on one end for about three-eighths f an lneti On this thread place one aut and one washer and thread through the cover of the jar, placing another washer and nut on the outside, tightening the two nuts until the cover Is held rigid, and when mounted on the jar allows the pipe to extend downward to within one-half tnch from th bottom. A one-eighth-inch copper tubing extends front the nipple soldered In the jar-top through the dashboard to a stopcock, and continues on back through the dash, and ts tapped into the intake manifold Just above the car-bwretor. The jar is then piled to about three-quarters of its height wtth water, by opening the stopcock so the air may escape, and pouring the water down the tube in the top. Englna Sucks Air.
