K)oo MAKING FARM Ooo TO grasp tho Idea of money making through selecting tho better types of live stock farmers need to learn the story of llanostlno Hello do ICol, queen of (ho dairy world. This llolstcln cow, now five years old nnd owned by Dlumilck &. Uro., Ohio breed ers, produced last year 27.-10i.-l pounds of milk testing 3.S0 per cent fat This moans over nlno gallons of milk per day, or enough to supply thirty-six fam ilies each with a quart of milk dally. If modo Into butter her fat production would equal 1,322 pounds of butter, or over three and one-half pounds per day for 305 days. This Is all tho moro remarkable be cause It was mado without her being dry at all before freshening. No other cow has over produced such an enor mous amount of butter fat In a yearly test, and only ono has exceeded Bano tino's milk record. llanostlno Belle Do Kol is a strong, rigorous cow of wonderful capacity and weighs In the neighborhood of 1.C00 pounds. Sho is tho daughter of Bauostlno Belle, who was a grand daughter of Euphrasia A., ono of tho greatest foundation cows tho breed has ever produced. Tho siro of Banos tlne Bello Do Kol Is Friend nengcrveld De Kol Butter Boy. During tho time that Bauostlno Belle Do Kol was In tho tost alio received nearly if not all tho tlmo moro or Iops ensilage nnd alfalfa. When available sho received roots and mixed grain ra tion, the foundation of which was bran oats. Sho was also fed somo dried DESTRUCTIVE APPLE PEST. Lesser Worm Continues Its Evil Work Even on Fruit In Barrels. In a bulletin on Insects which do se rious damage to tho apple the United States department of agriculture treats of the lesser applo worm. Tho larvae, It says, do not reach full development as early in tho fall as those of the cod ling moth and may find their way to barrels with tho fruit, wboro they con tinue to feed, often doing considerable damage. Tho plcturo Illustrates ap ples thus Injured as found In barrels in the Washington market, in New York city. Tho lesser applo worm Is probably a native insect, and it infests other fruits, wild and cultivated, Including Photograph by United States department of agriculture. Djxnnx nr lesser aitm worms to av- riffl AFXEn DABBELIHa. apples, haws, plums, prunes, cherries, peaches and species of Crataegus. It has also been reared from tho black knot of plum and from galls on oak and elm. Its life history and habits probably parallel thoso of the codling moth. It la known to bo present quite generally In orchards from Canada south to Georgia and west to tho Itocky moun tains. It has been found abundantly In apples in tho Puget sound district in Washington and Is known also from British Columbia. The schedulo of treatments recom mended for tho codling moth will bo effectivo in tho control of this species. Tho treatment for tho codling moth is limited almost entirely to spraying tho trees with arsenlcals, such as pads green or arsenate of lead. Tho latter Is now principally used. In tho cast tho poison is usually combined with a fungicide. In somo sections banding of trees is also employed and under spe cial conditions is a valuablo adjunct to spraying. From two to flvo spray ap plications nro given, according to the section of tho country and tho Boason. Of all treatments tho first is much the most important This is given as soon as the blossoms have fallen and bns for its object tho placing of poison in tho calyx cup of each llttlo apple. This treatment may bo successfully given during tho eight or ten days bo tween tho dropping of tho petals and tho closing of tho calyx lobes. Storing Onions. Onions to keep well must bo stored in a cool and dry place. A llttlo freezing does not necessarily hurt them if they aro not exposed to frequent freezing and thawing.

Farm and Ranch. - . .. . . ooc THE LITTLE PAY Dy C. C. BOWSFIELD ooO- beet pulp, especially when fresh roots were not available. Iter grain ration from tho first was gradually Increased i to twenty-flve pounds or n llttlo more, but later reduced to as low ns nine pounds per day. As near as can bo estimated, the nv erago amount of grain fed was twelvo or fourteen pounds dally. She also re ceived, when it was available, green corn with tho stalks and also green clover and any other green feed that might be available, Including feed from tho pasture A cow of fair qualities produces four gallons of milk dally. Sho is not worth keeping for a dairy unless sho will do this, and remember it takes no mors feed, room or labor for ono giving five gallons than for ono giving three or four. This reasoning applies with equal forco to other kinds of stock, but more particularly horses and swine. It re quires only n llttlo intelligent care In selection to raise a horse that will bring $250 to $000, whereas $100 to $200 is the prlco of an ordinary animal. Tho feed bill Is not a dollar more. In raising cows breeding and selec tion will produce animals that will earn $100 to $100 a year or that will sell for $100 to $500, while tho indif ferent kind nro worth next to nothing. There Is tho pamo difference in breed ing hogs. Tho gain comes chiefly after tho owner has produced something n llttlo better than ordinary. This truism applies to poultry, fruit and farming generally. TWO WAYS WITH HOGS. Cnre Taken With Animals Repaid Owner In Amount of Pork Yielded. Tho results of different treatments of hogs camo to my notice last spring, when a neighbor sold two average pigs eight weeks old to a man who did not have any other hogs, says a West Vir ginia correspondent of tho American Agriculturist lie bought the two hogs to make pork tho next fall and, of course, wanted to givo them a good chance to do their best They wore fed whoat middlings, milk and scraps from the table, In addition to tho pasture thoy gathered. They were grade Chester Whites, farrowed in April. These two pigs dressed between 100 and 175 pounds each when about seven months old. Tho pigs that had not been sold and out of tho same litter were allowed to run on pasture, and when corn was ready to feed they were fed enough corn to put them In pork condition, but when slaughtered nt about tho same tlmo as tho other two thoy only weighed sixty-five to seventy pounds each. Thcro was a difference of nearly 100 pounds between these well fed hogs and their mates not so fed, and It was whoWy duo to different treat ments. It Is easy to see which was tho moro economical pork producer tho well cared for hog or the ono which got enough feed to barely live until fattening time. The difference in value was almost $10, as pork sold at 10 cents n pound hero last fall. The two well cared for hogs did not eat nenr $10 worth of feed from tho tlmo they were separated from their mates until they were slaughtered. - Toss those aggravating rocks from the wagon track before tho freeze-up or you may Just count on Jolting over them nil winter long. It Frightens Them. Do your chickens or your neighbor's fly over your picket fenco Into your garden? If so nail a llttlo strip to each post and stretch a white twlno string about six or eight Inches abovo tho top of tho pickets. Tho samo plan will FENCE. apply to woven wlro fencing. A white twino string stretched along each pan el of fence has all tho horrors of tho Inquisition fer a hen, and sho will posi tively avoid It Tho sketch will give you tho idea (AA Btrips, B string). A. G. Humphreys. Little Farm Hints. Never mix sun slaked llmo with ma nure, as It will causo tho cscapo of am monia, ono of its most valuablo ele ments. Clean out tho chaff and hayseed on tho barn floor and scatter it over baro places in tho lots and pastures. This scattered seed represents good money value, and It should bo put to good pur pose. If you want spinach for use in early spring, at tho time when dandelion greens nro ripe, sow seed in September or October. Frequently it docs not winter well, especially If not protected by covering lightly with litter. Whero practlcablo tho fruit orchards should bo planted in autumn. Amoug tho principal advantages are lelsuro time, better physical condition of soli nnd tho early establishment and conse quent earlier growth of trees. Owing to its less hardy nature tho peach 1b to to excepted from tho fall planting. pHi PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION SUBMIT TED TO THE CITIZENS OF THIS COMMONWEALTH FOB THEIIt AP PROVAL OR REJECTION, BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYL VANIA, AND PUBLISHED BY OR DER OF THE SECRETARY OF THE COMMONWEALTH, IN PUR SUANCE OF ARTICLE XVIII OF THE CONSTITUTION.
