M a s o n C i t y G l o b e - G . a z e t t e Butchering With Care Helps Meat Animals that are run around and excited before they are killed don't-bleed well, according to C. W. McDonald, extension animal husbandry specialist of Iowa: State-college.-Most Important is to get a good stick. Thorough .bleeding Is necessary to a good quality carcass, McDonald .emphasizes. A thorough chilling of the carcass is also required if a good cure is to be secured. The meat should then be kept cold until it is ready for the cure. The meat should be kept cold while cutting.

For curing a clean barrel or crock should be used. The meat must be kept cold throughout the" entire, process to avoid soaring,.McDonald says. McDonald stresses that slaughtering of animals, whose meat will be cured, should be, done immediately so the cure will be complete before warm weather arrives. A bulletin "Home Butchering in Iowa" is.available .^rom'/the county extension office .or froin the extensio'n service of Iowa State college. It gives information on cutting pork or beef carcasses as well as instructions on curing, by the" brine or sweet pickle method or dry curing. · A favorabie price outlook tor fed cattle and hogs is indicated by the department of agriculture in its current review of the livestock and wool situation. Mar- ketings of fed cattle, the department says, will be sharply reduced this year and hog market- ings, while increasing, will advance at a slower rate.

OSCO DRUG STORE, Mason City ReedCanary GrassBest for Gullies Reed Canary; grass provides gully control with a minimum of labor, so: should be found of value on many Iowa farms. The grass has high value for pasture and hay,-in addition. The. grass is a wet-land grass that will thrive where water covers the surface much of the year. But at the same time Reed Canary grass has been found to be one of Iowa's most drouth- resistant ..grasses when planted on upland soils. It shows vigorous growth and rapid root extension, and a sod cover easily is established from small rootstock portions. Reed Canary grass is not recommended generally for hay and pasture on well-drained soils. Bromegrass and similar grasses, in combination with legumes, seem to be better under these conditions. After a few years, Reed Canary grass may become sod- bound and unproductive even when grown on a fertile.'Soil. But when grown in waterways and gullies, available nitrogen is added frequently in the runoff so this condition does not develop. ; WE HAVE THEM PASSENGER CAR TIRES -- ALL SIZES Truck Tires from 6.00-20 to 9.00-20 _ ^BATTERIES AND FAST CHARGE SERVICE Get More Mites Per Recap By Having Them Recapped at Pritchard's.

What Percent of Egg Production Are You Getting? _ _ The wide awake farm wife usually has this figure and knows that it has always been an uphill job to get a eood production during the winter months. Why? She knows the chicken house is too cola and wet. The government has for the past 3 or 4 years advocated "Insulation" in homes, that It would save as much as 20 or 25 per cent. This u true, it is also true of Insolation if used in buildings housing stock or fowls. First, It saves a lot of "Feed"; 2nd, it saves loss by'dis- ease; 3rd, it will give many more years life to a building by keeping it dry. (Keeping frost from walls 'and ceilings and haymows); 4th, After "thorough" insulation of these buildings comes ventilation. It has been impossible to ventilate these cold buildings successfully. It is easy to ventilate a tight, warm building. The temperature can be held In a well stocked chicken house at a degree that will make the hen produce 60 to 75% with the proper feeds. Watch our experimental house on lot west of yard. We aim to keep the temperature at 55 degrees. This building is thoroughly insulated, Double Glazed Sash, Froteeto Metal Roosts, Automatic Ventilating system, Automatic heater, Infra Red Ray bulbs, Electric water founts. We are open for suggestions from people having good win. ier egg production. Flocks producing in the early fall and through the winter are the money makers. Insolation and Ventilation in the barn, hos and chicken house is in its Infancy and much is to be learned. Experimenting under actual ·conditions is our way of trying to solve the problems. We are building insulated brooder houses for early spring chickens. The early chick makes the early laying pullet. Best to get them laying before cold weather sets in in the fall. Expect to have our house stocked in a week or so. COME IN NORTHERN LUMBER COMPANY 23 SECOND ST. S. E.
