lead ing farmers mostly breeders of fine stock English and foreign farmers understand itsusebetter than ye and hence until recent years a large pro portion of it was exported The farmers of America can use profitably all the oil meal that our mills furnish They can use all of this residuum of flax seed that the crop grown in Amer ica will furnish and even more It requires howover to be used intelli gently and in small proportions until the farmer understandshow to feed it One large use of it is to balance up ra tions In this country and especially the Westwo have a large surplus of carbonaceous foods such for example as corn corn fodder all kinds and timothy hay which are wasted in large part unless fed 5n a metro or less perfectly balanced ration There is nothing that can be used to so great an advantage in balancing up a ration as oil meal whether old process or new Where the farmer is obliged to feed corn to his young piga almost exclusive ly aa he is in most years on account of the scarcity of skim milk and the high price of oats therojis nothing that will balance up this ration so well as oil meal in the proportion of onesixth of the old process to the amount of corn used and a less amount of the now pros cess the reason being that the old pros jsess has more fat in it than tho new It can be usfid to good advantage aa an and for the purpose of rtgu bowols and

speak of their an imals on heavy feed beingburned up with corn In this they aro expressing more nearly a scientific truth than they imagine la fact there is scarcely any animal which will not some time iu the year bo beiitted by a little oil meal iu its daily food Cottonseed meal can bo substituted for it in feeding cattle but can not safely with hogs for any length of time nor is it safe to allow bogs to run after cattle which are fed heavily on cottonseed meal There is nothing that will teach lambs to eat better than a small amount very small of oil meal to begin with They are reryfond of it It should not be used largely with a skim milk ration for the reason that it itself is a nitrogenous ration as is also skim milk Corn meal is better than either to balance upa skim milk ration The trouble with skim milk is that it is too highly nitrogenous al ready Use the skim milk to balance up a corn meal ration and vice versa DBKAM CAME TB17E Atlanta Constitution Here is a strange true

appeared to her and told her that if she would go to a certain corner of the house and dig she would find a flat rock underneath which she would find a lot of silver money The woman awoke and was so much wrought up over the vision that she aroused some of the family and went at once to the designated spot and be gan to dig Soon the flat rock was reached and removed with trembling hands and high expectation A small box was reyealed this was taken out and opened and to the wonder and astonislimont of all present it contain ed thirty silver dollars Fancy patent flour for cash only 85 cents per
