FARMING A BUSINESS "Fcrniing is the indepentf- self-contained occupation that it was a generation ago. Condi- tions have changed from the piensrr days, and production has r.ot only to do with supplying tbc of the home, but it must aim iu create an export trade. Farming is a-real business, suc- cessfully carried on by men and women who .are not only skilful in the art and practice, but are versed fn the science of 'agricul- ture. Farmers today srs not con- tent to only how to grow crops, they want to know al- so how to market them to best advantage. They are interested In economic problems o( their own communities and to a great ex- tent in the problems of their cus- tomers in the city.

Dirt floors iu bog sheds will sftou become trampled, into a powdery dust which fills the air at tho least commotion or wind and- affords a good carrier of cholera germs.

When the-bed- ding becomes iloWD or ground up into small pieces It should bo ruketl up and hauled out niul b'urneo. Never put new bedding over the old. Clean Out Troughs If troughs are used in feeding they should bo washed wiih water to remove any filth pr soured mater- ial before more feed Is poured into them. In cases where more bogs are fed and constructed feeding floors are used the pens should be swept-clean before each feed die and washed when dirt collects which cannot be remov- ed with the broom.
