When given free choice of these various ingredients, 'he fowls consumed the various Ingredients In the alcove proportions. Several pens, both of I.eliorns and Ithxde Island Keds. of SO hens each have averaged from lto to 153 eggs apiece where this mash has been fed. The feeding mixture seems to le especially adapted for Leghcrns. although it has also given results with the Hods. The Wyandottes and Plymouth Hocks are inclined to accumulate too much fat when fed this mash, and one somewhat lower in mat scrap content gives letter results when fed to these two breeds. The Wyandottes and Plymouth Rocks maintained on the Rcltsville farm are large, standard-size fowls, and the tendency to take on fat on this mash probably did not occur in the case of smaller types of Plymouth Rocks. si:ch as commonly are found on commercial poultry farms, ments conducted during the I-.xperi- , current i year in which this mash was modified by the addition of 1" per cent ground onts and the redaction of the meat Give Pullets Liberal Rstion cf Scratch Grain in the Fall. s scrap by 3 per cent and the commeal by 12 per cent have not shown any advantage.

OPEN CHILD'S BOWELS WITH CALIFORNIA FIG SYRUP Your little one will love the "fruity" taste of "California Fig Syrup" even if constipated, bilious, irritable, feverish, or full of cold. A teaspoonful never fails to cleanse the liver and bowels. In a few hours you can see for yourself how thoroughly it works all tht pour bile, and undigested food out ot the bowels and you have a well, playful child again. Millions of mothers keep "California Fig Syrup" handy. They know a tea-spoonful today saves a sick child tomorrow. Ask your druggist for genuine "California Fig Syrup," which has directions for babies and children ot all ages printed on bottle. Mother! You must say "California" or you may get an imitation rig syrup. Advertlso-ment. Very "Dead." Ignorance Is never shown more effectually than in an attempt to conceal it. A countryman, roaming about a cemetery, came upon a stone which bore this inscription: "Sic transit gloria mnndi" (So passes earthly glory). "What does that mean?" he asked of the sexton, who was at work near-! by. ! The sexton replied : "Well, it means ! that he was sick transiently and went j to glory on a Monday morning." ; Diplomacy.

They should be clear of the woodwork and should always be kept clear of soot. Stovepipes should never pas through inaccessible places like a closet or garret. If they must pass through the wall, see that the stove-pijio hole is provided with a good "thimble." Where walls and ceilings are near the pipe cover them with metal or asbestos. Every stove should have a piece of shoot metal under it to protect the floor from hot ashes and live coals. ever leave mtiammable rubbish ! near buildings, Remove it. If it must be burned, pile it in small piles, so the J Haze never can get out of control. It I is best not to have the children near the fire. This is perhaps a hardship, At least they can le kept from play- tng witn tne tire. When new buildings are to be constructed proper spacing and the liberal use of concrete and mason-work will reduce fire liability. Smoke houses should never be built so that Hot ashes never should be dumped in inflammable receptacles. Fire-Fighting Equipment. In the way of providing .Ire-fighting equipment much can le done without groat outlay. Barrels of water on the roof and pails of water kept standing in convenient places will possibly save disastrous loss. If there is an elevated tank or a force pump, a hose connection will be found invaluable in time of need. A ladder that will reach the roof should always be available for Immediate use. Sand should be kept handy to throw-on gasoline and oil fires; water only scatters them. There are a number of simple chemical extinguishers on the market, some , commercial and some homemade. Every Fire Sugcects Preventive an d Have Been Frrrd by the Unite! States LVprtmnt of AKricutur. Every time there is a fire on a farm it takes away value that never can be replaced. Either the owner uiusi be deprived of what may have been the fruits of 20 of the best years of his life, or the insurance company will be called upon for a check, which has to ceme out of the premiums paid by himself and ether property owners. If there are many fires, the insurance rates increase. In mutual corn-: panics, which carry a large proportion of farm insurance, the increase is 1m-: mediately felt. In a recent year there were more than SS.O00 farm fires in the United States, entailing a loss of mere than S1S,V0, of which S3 per I cent was held to have been prevent-j able. Strive te Prevent Fires. Prevention of fires was made a special subject of consideration In churches, schools, public gatherings. and farm organizations for an entire t week this October.

Even when the best preven-I tlve measures fail and fires break out, preparatory measures will put the farmer and his neighbors in better sha;e to subdue them. Every fire nvust have an initial flame, whether it be from a carelessly thrown match or cigarette, an ex-i ploion of kerosene or gasoline, an explosion of prain dust in a thrash- Ins machine, or sparks from a sooty chTmney or passing engine. Matches never should be left looe j or within the reach of children. Put j them in nonoomhustible containers and have a pocket match safe. Better yet, use safety matches, which can be scratched only on the box. Smoking never should be permitted around the barn or in the vicinity of inflammable matter. Matches, cigar or cigarette stubs never should be thrown where they can do harm Kerosene na gasoum- are use u servants, but destructive when let loose.

Sometimes a short concrete dip is used for the purpose of passing the water over the road in a comparatively wide and shallow flow Instead of under it. A dip is simply a pavement extending the full width of the roadway and protected at each edge against undermining by a cut-off wall extending 18 inches below "the bottom of the pavement. Instead of attempting to build up a grade for this pavement, so as to raise it above the flood water, the dip follows the grade of the wash, and the water passes over it in time of v va v.vuv a v v. v i ... - - nectlon with these drainage dips a V-shaped system of dikes and ditches is used, converging toward the road if it Is desired to lead the flow from two or more washes to a single dip. and diverging toward the road when It Is better to split the flow of a stngle stream to more than one dip. . WOMEN FAVOR BETTER ROADS Townsend Bill Endorsed by General Federation of Women's Clubs at Salt Lake Meeting. Evldeuce of the widespread interest in good highways was shown at the recent meeting of the General Federation of Women's Clubs at Salt Lake City. In endorsing the Town-send bill for national highways, uow before congress. Mrs. John Dickinson Sherman of Chicago, chairman of the department of applied education, said: "It is not necessary for us to point out the real Interest of American women in highway matters. The influence of real highways on country life, on economics, on education, Is now generally understood. What is needed is a national highway policy which will conserve government funds, and, through concentration of federal money on main highways, will give us a connected system at the earliest moment and the least expense." GOOD ROADS REDUCE PRICES Poor Transportation Facilities Help Keep Up High Cost of Living in Big Cities. One of the solutions of the high cost of living problem lies ' In good roads. Poor transportation facilities form a strong factor in keeping prices up. With a system of well paved na tional highways transportation condi tions would be Improved to such an extent that the cost and time of bringing food and merchandise to the con aamer would be materially cut.

In previous years tish meal has not proved a more profitable and practical source of protein in the mash than meat scrap, hut during the present year the production has been very pod where the fish refuse has been used, and as the price of this material has decreased, larger net incomes result from its use. Sixty per cent protein fish scrap now can be obtained for from SI to $2 per hundred pounds cheaper than 5o per cent protein meat scrap. Innumerable varieties of fish rcrap have been fed and no harmful effects have resulted from feeding even fish scrap of varied compositions, some being unusually rich in ni content. Tests in which only 15 per cent of meat scrap was fed in the mash have not resulted in as 'high production with pullets as where J0 or 25 per rent of meat rcrap was used, but with yearling hens the 16 per cent meat scrap has given practically as good production as the higher. With the heavier breeds. It is advisable to decrease the amount of meat rcrap during the second year, as such feeding tends to keep the fowls in tetter breeding condition.

The thousands of fanners from the United States who have accepted Canada's generous offer to settle on FREE homesteads or buy farm land in her provinces have been well repaid by bountiful crops. There is still available on easy terms Fertile Land at $15 to $30 an Acre land similar to that which through many years has yielded from 20 to 45 bushels of wheat to the acre oats, barley and flax also in preat abundance, while raising horses, cattle, sheep and hogs is equally profitable. Hundreds of fanners in western Canada have raised crops in a single season worth more than the whole cost of their land. With such success comes prosperity, independence, good homes and all the comforts and conveniences which make life worth living. Farm Gardens. Poultry.
