In the work of dehorning1 mature it is Liciu of. Securely held. The Best plan i know of it Means of a rack As illustrated and which i have used with hundreds of head of Stock. For its construction take two scantling a a 2x6 inches 6 feet. Bore three Inch holes through each piece one in Middle and one at each end. Put in three rounds each 3 feet Long makes the main Frame. Bolt on six upright pieces a 2x4 inches 5 feet High one at Middle the other two at on each Side. Mor de Horning rack.

A Peg is inserted under the animal s neck at g. The Windlass is attached to the rope about the an Imal s head and the head is drawn and tight against the Board m. Tanner in farm and Home. How to prevent flies. Pint Eide Natal the removal of fuck and Travali Tutor but ural Breeding ground. One of the greatest nuisances about a farm is the pest of flies in the sum Mer and fall. It would hard to estimate the loss occasioned them every year about the barns Dairy and feed lots. No cow can do herself jus Tice where she is forced to keep up a continued Battle with a swarm of flies from Daylight until dark. Worrying at the flies is More wearing on a team than hard labor. The cause of pastured and fattening Stock los ing flesh in the summer is the flies. As with most evils the Best cure is prevention. To prevent the pest one must remove their Breeding ground which is the filth and trash about the premises. It is the Case on most farms that the manure heaps Are Al Lowed to accumulate during the sum Mer and the Yards to go uncleaned. These furnish the Best of Breeding places for the flies. Swill barrels and buckets too Are never washed out but Are allowed to sour and become encrusted with dirt another source of flies. In feeding the hogs and calves milk and Slop Are spilled about the troughs and barrels Day after Day. The ground thus treated soon becomes a hotbed for the eggs which will Hatch and feed there. Open closets and uncovered drains Are an other source As any place where there is decayed Natter or filth for the maggots to thrive upon after hatching. Flies Are far More of a local pest than most people imagine a farm House whose grounds Are kept clean and whose Back Yard is free from refuse slops Etc., will Little troubled with flies. Stock kept in a clean stable or lot will less troubled than the animals of the untidy shift less Farmer. Cleanliness and flies do oot thrive l. Irwin in farm and fireside. With appetite. Occasionally we hear of cattle that develop an Jai Normal appetite for sroot1, eating Rotten pieces of boards Etc. A contributor to National Stock Man states Aat at one Crawford county Institute a gentleman complained that one of his lows had eaten a pig pin a string of Fence and other lumber on the premises and he Tad been compe red to Fence her away from the barn to save it. He has fed Many and various feeding stuffs besides bom Emeal sawdust and other with lumber at present prices the cow has expensive tastes. It wishes to know what produced the appetite and what will cure it. He things he has provided foods that fur All the Mineral elements Nee old the inclination to Chew Sticks trod boards Bow to e Only i cow habit. Marked Progress. Paulle dare Eta Ota. Haa Dame Wark the work of the office of Public Road inquiries under the direction of Gen Koy Stone has been marked during the past year steady Progress along its Well established lines. A great Deal of work is accomplished correspond ence and the gathering and dissed inating1 of important information re lating to various phases of the Road subject. Many thousand copies of Good roads literature have been distributed among Farmers and other persons interested and important Road conventions have been attended representatives of the office and Many Statt Legislatures have asked for and received assistance in framing new Road Legisla Tion. Examples of steel Road tracks have been completed in a number of different localities and these experimental sections of steel Road clearly demonstrated their usefulness for the Western states and for other which Are but sparingly supplied with Good Stone and gravel. When steel comes cheap once More the manufacturers can take the matter up and make a series of special shapes. The object lessons furnished Sample roads have been extensive and sections have been built in several parts of the country. As a result of the investigations the office considers that for local needs As Well As for our material development and Prosperity a Well regulated system of Public roads through the whole country is Day Day becoming More necessary. While we have the most perfect railway system in. The Tor i or 1 highways Are and Al ways have been inferior to those of any other country in the civilized old world. As our Public roads Are the veins and arteries of our agricultural commercial and social life they Are not yet receiving the consideration that their great importance deserves. Much has been done in the United states to Ward Road building during the last few years but much More needs to done. American. Strong rail Fence. The picture Here Given one that convenient and Jot expensive to put i7p. When a Farmer has a lot of old rail fences going to rack he will find the Fence shown in the illustration the cheapest one he can build. Set posts six inches closer together than the rails Are Long take two pieces of Ordinary fencing wire each about Sis feet Long and place on sides of first two posts having wire on second Post of opposite Side to wire on first Post fasten these wires to tie Post at or near the ground. Vow place a rail tween the wires and posts drawing wire up tightly Over rail and stapling convenient rail Fence. Just Ato Ove rail with Long Staple doing same at both ends put on another rail As before and continue till top of posts is reached which completes the first panel. The other panels Are made in the same Way taking care not to have both ends of the panel on the same Side of posts but run alternately As started. The illustration shows the Way rails Are stapled to posts and the manner of running panels. As the rails when put on posts in this Way do not touch each other they will last longer than when put on any other Way and i like this method of making use of old Rajs very Well for setting posts and using a Little wire a Good Fence can Spude from a very poor one. Build six to eight rails High. Should a Post rot off any time set another near it and fasten rails As before. J. G. Allshouse in farm and fireside. Want Good roads. The Farmers of Are inning to Par attention to Tae coat of the subject of Good to acts is begin Ning to occupy the attention of the Farmers of Pennsylvania and promises to become before Long a Prota intent Factor in state and county elections. In a recent address at Doylestown Edmund g. Harrison chief Engineer of the United states department of Road inquiry said the average Cost of transporting products in the United states Over common roads is 25 cents per mile an aggregate of 000. Voith Good roads such As they have in Many parts of sew Jersey Connecticut new York Massachusetts and Kentucky he said the Cost is reduced to eight cents per mile. The average of building Good roads u about per mile. According to these figures. It is much cheaper to maintain Good roads than it is to allow the poor ones to re main. Good roads practically effect a saving of two thirds in transportation. The residents of cities have Learned to realize the benefits of improved highways.
