Matter of Retaining
Youth, State of Mind
' Youth is a quality, a spiritual energy,
and, properly speaking, there is no
“old age,” but spiritual decay. "The
foot less prompt to meet the morning
dew” is no valid evidence of growing
old, any more than to lose a leg In
battle. Fussy physical activities are
not the only tests of youth, Richard
Le Gallienne comments in Harper's
Magazine, The brain of Sophocles which
gave us the greatest play at ninety, Is
more to the point, as also that famous
saying recorded of him, in reference to
the cooling of the passions with the
Tears, that to grow old was like being
set free from mervice to a band of
Because we grow wiser and stronger,
less selfish and generally more useful
to our fellows with the passage of the
years is not to say that we have lost
our youth. It only means that we
have learned how to employ it. We
do not run in every direction as we
did. We know a little better what we
are doing, or what we want to do; but
the motive force that enables us to do
it is that same energy which once drove
us to make fools of ourselves at the
beginning, and still provides the same
s‘swift means to radiant ends.”
Decay, disillusion, weariness; we
mean these things when we speak of
“growing old,” but we fail to realize
that these are no necessary accompani-
ments of the years. We may, unfor-
tunately, inherit them, or acquire them,
like bad habits, or through neglect of
a proper care and exercise of our spir-
ftual selves. Spiritual and intellectual
laziness makes most people “old hefore
their time.” If we lose interesf in life.
life will soon lose interest in us; and
ft is just as possible to achieve a preco-
cious senility in the twenties as at
gny later period of our lives.
Important in Life Is
“Trade” of Parenthood
Parenthood is a difficult trade and
should be studied; it is as much your
business as your wife's to learn all you
can of child nature; of things to be
done and avoided if your experience
with your child is to be a mutual bless-
ing and a mutual delight, is the ad-
monition voiced by John P. Gavit, in
Children’s Magazine.
If you think your own elders made
certain mistakes in dealing with you
it was only because they did the best
they knew. never having studied this
most difficult trade of parenthood.
Begin now, during the babyhood ot
your child, to be his companicn, chum
and pal. It will reflect in your rela-
tionship with him in the years to come,
While it is important, in a way, what
you think of him, it is more impor-
tant what he thinks of you; he will
know you better than you know him,
for one of the most essential preoccu-
pations of every child is the study of
his parents. Largely upon the intelli-
gence vit which you carry on your
new job will depend the happiness and
success of your son or daughter,
Fearless Men Vanishing
Human courage is of four distinet
types, of which one is fast disappear-
ing under education and industrial life.
That is the conclusion of Dr, C. M. Wil
son, of St. Mary's hospital, London,
based on his psychological studies of
soldiers and of people in civil life The
vanishing variety, says Doctor Wilson
in Popualr Science Monthly, is that of
the person who actually feels no fear—
rare in this age where there are So
many things to be afraid of. Other
types are of those who feel fear but
hide it; those who show it but reso-
jutely carry on; and, lastly, those who
are so frightened that their fear is
transformed into a reckless frenzy. like
that of the small boy who whips the
bully who goaded him to desperation.
nome’s Legendary Tower
The medieval Torre delle Militae,
sometimes called the Tower of Nero.
because of the legend which says that
Nero stood on the top of it to look at
the spectacle of the city in flames, has
been opened to the public, writes the
Rome correspondent of the Christian
Science Monitor. The legend has, of
‘course, no foundation, and the tower
is one of the feudal fortresses of the
Twelfth century. A magnificent view
of the city, however, can be obtained
from its top. It was erected by the
sons of Peter Alerius, a baron at-
tached to the party of Senator Pan-
dolfo de Suburra, on the site of a
building called “Hostium Militie,”
hence its present name. It leans to
the southwest and was originally
much higher, but the earthquake of
1348 brought it to its present dimen-
sions. :
Georgia “Crackers”
Authorities differ as to the origin
of the term “Crackers,” as applied to
natives of Georgia, According to
Olmstead, the nickname was applied
to these people on account of their
peculiar dialect, almost incomprehen:
sible and difficult to report or de.
scribe. Another theory is that the
name was given because cracked corn
formed their chief article of diet. In
a publication dated 1835, it is stated
that the “Crackers” received their
name because they were accustomed
to using a particular form of whip.
which had a piece of buckskin at the
end known as a “cracker.”
—Feeder pigs pay on the dairy
—Sheep can use profitably a lot of
waste feed around the farm.
—Fall freshened, cows give more
and cheaper milk and butterfat.
—Milking ability is inherited. Raise
the calves from your best cows.
—Alfalfa hay is one of the best
feeds available for breeding ewes.
—The young hog will make better
gains if he gets shade dring hot
—A dish rag is always dirty. One
of these things should never touch a
milk vessel.
—The cattle feeder who doesn’t
grow alfalfa hay is 100 years behind
the times.
—Bring the farm accounts up to
date and begin to complete records on
crop costs.
—The size of the hog crop has a
pronounced influence upon hog re-
ceipts and prices.
—The man who feeds the mother
right will have no trouble in feeding
the young litter of pigs.
—Common salt, lime, phosphorus
and iodine are minerals most common-
ly lacking in live-stock rations.
—If you have ten milk cows you
need a silo, if you have no cheaper
method to provide green stuff for
them next winter.
—The addition of chopped alfalfa
hay and oilmeal to a ration of yellow
corn and tankage for hogs greatly in-
creases the efficiency of the ration.
—Remember that straining removes
only the coarse material from milk.
It does not reduce the bacteria count
or remove the finer particles of dirt.
—Quality milk brings the best price
and makes satisfied customers. The
main essentials are cleanliness, prompt
cooling, and holding at a low temper-
—Keep the ram in the barn during
day and feed him some bran and oats
to keep him in good vigorous breeding
condition. Turn him out with the
flock at night.
—Where succulent materials which
will produce odors or flavors are fea
to cows, the proper methods of proce-
dure is to feed such products shortly
after milking.
—Demand for good horses is in-
creasing, according to State College
livestock men. Many farmers in the
State are buying purebred stallions
and registered mares.
—It is poor economy to purchase
cheap utensils. A good quality of
utensils, with smooth sides and bot-
toms, will do much to improve the
quality of dairy products.
—Brood sows should not be fed for
at least 24 hours after farrowing.
If fed the sow may become restless
and trample on the pigs and the little
pigs may scour or acquire other diges-
tive disorders.
—Select some of the finest apples
in your orchard for the State Farm
Products Show at Harrisburg. There
is no better way of checking on the
care given the orchard the previous
season than by selecting show fruit.
—A¢t this time of the year, many
flocks of pullets will develop a slight
cold, which if not cared for will re-
sult in roup. When the first indica-
tion of cold appears, try adding three

—Ventilate the storage cellar
whenever it can be done without rais-
ing the temperature. If the floor is
concrete it may be well to dampen it
to prevent shriveling of the fruit.
—Make out a crop summary for
i your farm, giving acreages and yields
‘of all crops. Compare these with the
average of the State and of the best
' farm in your community, say from
management specialists of the Penn-
sylvania State College.
—Last year during the first three
weeks in November, the peak of egg
prices for the year was reached. Each
year the peak seems to be a little
earlier than in previous years, anc
this brings out very forcefully the
fact that eggs produced during the
late summer and fall rather than
those laid during the winter are the
money makers.

tein concentrates it has, for a number
of years, been used very extensively
by practical hog feeders and research
men. The results obtained by feeding
corn and tankage under the ordinary
conditions have been so uniform that
for years the combination of corn and
tankage has been considered the
standard cornbelt ration.
