Oar Daily 'Bread COSTLY MIXTURES NOT NECESSARY FOR County Farm Agent Pointa to Needless Expense Contracted By Many. Costly mineral mixtures for hogs are unnecessary, according' to V. S. Ciippen, county agent, who has noticed that hog rafHcrH arc manifesting a rapidly increasing interest hi miner*! mixtures for hog*. An im.meu»e business has developed in selling high- priced »vln«ral mixtures to farmers in thU section. "This interest has reunited from wrong interpretation of the results of eori.aln hog feeding experiments," stat'd Mr. Crippen. "Many persons have overlooked the fact that whil it paid to f^od rnlueraj mlxturo.3 with soybeans, it did not pay to feed them with tankage. The Ivan-sae exp+jri nicnt &tatIon has conducted tes-ta in mixing mlnero.lH to fatten hogtj and whenever corn was supplemented with langage the addition of mineral docrcuFed daily gains and increased the rest of gains both in the dry lot and in panttirt\ "If a farmer reeU:a that he imisl feed fn.ttoning hogs a mineral mix were vurehmcd lurt , > f[ .

Federal aid Tho fly season is 'here. With files come decreased milk production, added annoyance ln milking and tortured calves. If wo swat the fly early in the season it means fewer dies in late summer. Every fly destroyed now will mean one million less this fall. Ways to swat him aro to destroy breeding places by cilcanlng up manure pllo3, especially horso manure, rubbish piles nil accumulations of decaying vosetablo nnd animal matter and to trap and poison him. The cows may be relieved of the torture of files by furnishing them with goo!, dark, well ventilated retreats such tvs darkened sheds or basements. Fly repellants aid . considerably in relieving the cows, and savins, tlie temper of the milkers, thus preventing any great reduction iu mi'lk flow. The. following fly spray Is very cheap, easily made and effective; Hi quarts coal tar dip. 1H quarts fish oil. 1 pint of oil of tar. 1 pint of coal oil. 2 pints of penny royal. Mix in 10 gallons of luko warm water ln which a bar of laundry snap has been dissolved. This spray will keep off Hie flies and prevent the coats of the animals from becoming harsh. Coal oil and machine oil mixed half and half ami applied as a spray Is usually effective during milking time and does not injure the coat of the animal.

"One-third ot this loss is preventable, because it Is duo to tho partial hatching of fertile eggs which 'have been- ullowod to become warm enough to begin to Incubate. - "The rooster makes the egg fertile and the fertile- egg makes tho blood ring, which causes tho egg to spoil, i "Yon can save tho ?15,000,0(M) now lost from blood rings by keeping the male -bird from your flock after Jiie hatching season Is over. The rooster does not help the "hons to lay. He merely fertilizes tho germ ot the egg. Tho fertile germ ln hot weather quick ly- becomes a blood ring, which spoils tho egg for food and market, yammer heat has the same effect on fertile eggs as the hen or incubator. "After the hatching season, cook, sell, or pen your rooster. Your heps not running with a male bird will produce lnfert.Uo eggs—quality eggs that keep best and market best. "Heat is the great enemy ot eggs, both fertile and infertile. Farmers are urged to follow these sfflTple rules, which cost nothing but time and thought mid will add dollars to the poultry yard returns: 1. Keep the nests clean; provide ono nest for every four hens. 2. Gather tho eggs twice dally. 3. Keep the eggs in a cool, dry room or cellar. 4. Market the eggs at least twice a week. 5. Boll, kill or confine all male birds as soon as the hatching season Is over. SHOULD PLOWOR LIST ALL FItLl NESS COUNTY FARMERS FIND PUREBREDS PAY Pn.iture-Fed Stock Marketed By Wra. Gulick Looks as Good as »>>rn Fed Graders. Tho citiiai-lenco of William Gulick of XOSM county-is'a good answer to the question: "Do Thorobrods Pay?" During the past three woeka Mr. Gulick has boen' Bulling somo of bis purebred Shorthorn cows to a local meat market. These cows were only grass fed but they looked like they wore corn fed. On an average they dresned ] out 720 pounds of first class marketable meat while the average grade animal according to Mr. Uoebel, the retail .butcher, dresses out about 560 pounds. Tho grade cattle aro bought or ?4O,0O per head, while the pure- hrods bring $76.00 per head. These are sold on the block for the same price per pound. "1 ran afford to do this," said Mr. Goebol, "bocauso my customers aro better satisfied and the quality of the meat Is superior. The purebred also dresses out a higher per cent of marketable moat because the neck Is shorter, the body longer, a thicker layer of meat covers tho body, and there Is more marketable meat." "1 raise purebred cattle because it doesn't take any more grass to kce;> them than It does grades. If I want to sell ono to tho butcher I can get twice ns much for it as I can get for a grado. Tn fact the purobreds are Just bigger and bettor In every way." stild Mr. Gulick. " HALF OF WORLD WORKERS ENGAGED IN AGRICULTURE MINNESOTA FARM VOTE MAY ELECT " RADICAL NOMINEE BROOM CORN HIGH.

Of all occupied men and boys in 23 leading countries, 51.4 per cent are engaged ln agriculture, and, of all occupied women and girls, 50.6 per cent follow agricultural pursuits, statistics show. The figures do not include the large agricultural populations of Russia, China, Serbia, Hungary, Argentina, and Brazil. The largest number of both male and female agricultural workers in tho countries covered is in India, where 71,00-0.000 males and 34,000.000 females are so employed aud comprise 72 per cent of the total number of workers. The United States is second with 1 1,000,000 male and 2,000,000 female agricultural workers, or 29 per cent of all employed persons. The figures were compiled to show that problems concerning agricultural workers affect a larger number of workers in almost ovory country than those engaged iu manufacturing, mining, lumbering, or commerce, and in a few countries more than in all these industries combined.

The Farmers Elevator and' Merc. Co. of Brown Spur has been one of the most successfully operated businesses ln Kingman county since its organization n 1008. Mr. Wooldrldge has made a roputaton as one of tho best grain and food men in the county and it haa- been through his management that tho concern has been such a success. The business was-organized with a capital stock of $6,000. Of this amount $2090 was paid ln. Tho concern never failed to pay an annual dlvldoud and ln 1920 to take car6 of its Increased business, the firm was recapitalized at $26,00*. The (stockholders boing given stock to this amount. None of tho stockholders have ever boon onllod upon to put more money into tho business to take care of any dot- leits or to iucroaso the capitalization. The assets of tho company aro considerably morethan tho capital at this time and Bomo talk has boen made about Increasing the capital and soiling stock to Borne of tho folks who have said they would like to take it. For oevoral years tho Brown Spur elevator has had tho reputation of bolng the best market for wheat in tho county. Even during the period when It wag difficult for the elevators to secure cars to ship wheat there were but few days when Albert Wool­ dridgo was not buying wheat. Lait spring when tlie property of tlie Associated Mill and Elevator Co. was sold here at sheriff's sale Mr. Wooldridge purchased it. He ooxioidorcii It u good investment and the direotora of the Farmers Elevator and More. Co. purchased tt from him, and have selected G-len Elder, a sou of 11. O. Elder, one of tho directors of the Brown Spur company to manage tho business hero. Mr. Wooldridge stated Tuesday that the Kingnitn business will be confined to buying wheat and selling toed, flour and coal. For several yearn Mr. Wooldridge has been saying be was going to quit next year. He has devoted about twolvo hours a day to the buslnoss since it imi organised and in tho busy seasons ot the year ho has been on the job from dayliglvt to away past dark. In spite of the tact that his- health has been in poor condition for tho past flvo years, and it has beon necessary for him to get away from tho business a few weeks, the stockholders and directors ot the company have prevailed upon him to atay with them and lie has promised them that ho will not now turn over the buying and selling ot tho business until tboy aro satisfied the men he is trnlnng to take over his work are able to handle the business. .He snld this week that SB soon as they catch on to the business he ln going to get clear out and go back to one of his farms and see it he can't •actually live a tew more ye *rs. i Galloway neighborhood being hit the hardest.

Chris Molz of northeast of Stanton has out 700 acres pt spring crops, of which 500 is in broom corn. He is ono of the most successful broom "corn raisers in the Boutbwost and has been at It for a number of years. SUaGEST8 MILO. Ness County Wriest Raiser 8ays Crop Will Pave Way for Whest. Hero's a fine suggestion given by A. W. Wilson, a big wheat raiser out in Ness county: Every man who Is expecting to sow wheat this fall and hasn't the seed in Big -tit should plant SO or +0 acres In Bxllo malto. The mllo is a quick sure Purchase a bottle of prairie dog pol- Bon at any drug store. When you discover a hole in the ground, saturate a corn cob, cow chip or small piece of cotton, throw it Into the hole and* covor' up the hole with earth. Some farmers carry a small bottle of poison and some cotton and a fine shovel on the ptow and every hole they come to, they treat lu that man- fer. If ovory fanner would do this It would save hundredn of dollars, and In two or three years Badgers and skunks would be scarce.
