Car., (IP)--An alarmed woman in a suburban Columbia home" telephoned the sheriff that 3 "very strange" animals had invaded her yard and were eating up the lawn. Officers - hurried to the scene. Grazing peacefully in the grass were 3 stray cows. The frightened woman explained, with some embarrassment, that she came from a large city in the east and" had never seen a live cow before. Oats in Wright county, Iowa tested this year ranged in germination from 10 to 98 per cent. These tests show how . important it is to have the seed tested.

W. Stouder, Iowa State college extension veterinarian. With the animal held securely in a dehorning chute and the horns removed, the bleeding may be checked by dusting with iron sulphate or tincture of chloride of iron. Common flour has been used for this purpose- -Another suggestion is to take a small pair 1 forceps or even pliers and rush the ends of the arteries hich are severed when the orns are removed.: It is quite important to with- old cattle from sweet clover hay r pasture at least 1 month be- ore they are to be dehorned or astrated. Although sweet clov- r is not poison, it brings about chemical change that causes he blood to clot very slowly or ,ot at all. Valuable cattle have led (o death when they were lehorned immediately after be- ng on sweet clover hay or pas- ure. PHONE 1387 106 NORTH DELAWARE Care of Farm Machinery Is Essential Job Keeping farm machinery in good condition is au important wartime job. Winter cai-e should include proper housing and protection by paint or other coat* ings or parts subject to decay or rust. Housed machines always are more readily available for repair during the winter. And C. H. Van Vlack, Iowa State college extension agricultural engineer, points out that a machine protected from moisture, sun and dust will start in a minimum of time: Moving parts will not rust, and oil holes and bearings are free of dust and gritty material. Before painting farm machinery, all grease, rust and scaling paint should be removed. If the machine is blocked up, the parts will be easy to reach for cleaning and painting. Van Vlack suggests painting with a mixture of dry red lead. Un- seed oil and gum spirits of turpentine. Metallic zinc paint is best for galvanized surfaces. Two coats will increase the durability of the paint. Varnish, a good lead-base paint or any good quality house paint can be used as a finishing coat. Bright spots of machines should have -a coaling more easily»remoyed.than paint. Used engine oil is satisfactory if the machine is housed. If it is left outdoors, ordinary axle grease gives more durable protection. The quantity oA feed grains disappearing from farms in the United States between July 1 md Oct. 1 was about 17 per :ent greater than in the same period of 1942 and 27 per cent greater than in any of the pre- eding 20 years. Snow Fence Helpful in Protecting Bees Snow fence for protection of bees during cold weather is recommended by Floyd Paddock, Iowa State college extension apiarist. Ice which clogs the entrance to the hive and results in suffocation is the main wintertime hazard for bees. The snow fence causes much of the snow to drift before it reaches the hives, and thereby prevents it from melting and running down to the entrance. A snow fence may be placed about 1 rod from the hives, on the side -where protection is needed most. According to Paddock, this will be the north, east, or west sides, or anywhere between those directions. A second fence located about 2 rods out from the hives will give further protection. Some beekeepers have used cornstalks or corn fodder as a wind protection. Wherever this is done, the stalks should not be placed so that they cause the snow to drift on top of the hives, nor should they be placed so that snow in them will run down onto the hives when it melts. The nation's sweet clover seed crop in 1943 was the smallest n 21 years. American farmers will dig deeply into reserve supplies of corn, oats and barley during the coming year, for there is about 10 per cent more livestock than a year ago. Farmers Notice!
