There Are As Many different kinds of houses is there Are different kinds of people and it is an interesting game in passing along the Street to try to guess what the people living in any House Are like judging from the appearance of their Home. It is often possible to Mako a fairly accurate guess too for the knowing Home builder builds his own personality into his Home. The playing of this game has a real value for it causes one to observe More closely the characteristics of various houses and thus aids him when the time comes to plan for his own Home. The interested observer will find that every so often he sees one House which though very simple in its style makes a Strong Appeal by virtue if its decidedly Home like atmosphere. Such a House is shown in the accompanying photograph. Probably the Broad circling porch is As much As anything responsible for this atmosphere. Porches seem to be left out of the plan for a very Large number of modern Homes but there Are Many who still feel that a porch is an essential part of the Home and there Are few to whom a porch does not make its Appeal. The placing of the Steps at the Corner of the porch is a feature which adds a pleasing touch of individuality in. There is a door opening from the washroom into the dining room. While it might often prove a convenience and would not be objectionable if always kept tightly shut it would really be better to separate the dining room and washroom by a solid Wall. On the upper floor will be found three bedrooms. These Are All Large systematic feed for Young lambs first floor plan. To this House and together with the treatment of plants Trees and vines gives to a satisfactory degree the effect of privacy. The characteristic Home like tone is also found within the Home. It May be entered from the porch through doors opening into both the living room and dining room. The former placed at the front of the House is notable for its generous lighting supplied by windows on three sides and is made cheerful by a Large fireplace. The dining room is also Well lighted and Large. From it a stairway leads to the upper floor. Directly Back of the dining room is the Kitchen Small but compactly arranged and furnished with a Large storage pantry. Opposite tills pantry a breakfast room opens off the Kitchen while beyond is a Small rear Hall with a door onto the Back porch. From this Hall one also passes Forward into a washroom the placing of which on the first floor will prove a great labor Saver to the housekeeper who is thus saved the Effort of Many trips up and Down the basement stairs. It is it this Point that one change might Well be made in this plan. Second floor plan. And Well lighted with ample provision for Cross ventilation. Each is provided with a closet and there is an additional closet for linens in the hallway. The bathroom is placed most conveniently to serve All the bedrooms just beside the . Suitable Drain for porch is essential a suitable Drain to carry off rain or melted Snow is almost an essential for a porch with a solid Concrete Brick or Wood railing. Then too the washing of a porch is made much easier when there is a Drain from the waste water and one does not have to mop it up and return it to the bucket. In fact if the porch is provided with a Drain one can use the Ordinary Garden Hose and Wash it just like a sidewalk. We have found that the Best and most efficient Drain can be constructed easily in the following manner Frame up the porch joists in the usual Way then Cut in headers Between the outside Joist and the one next to it then head across again Between the headers leaving about two inches Between this header and the outside Joist. Stop the porch floor about one Inch Over this header. This leaves a place for the surplus water to drip Down the front porch Joist where the ground will easily take care of any amount of water As would naturally fall in such a place. How to remove and prevent scratch Marks scratches on the Woodwork Are ugly and a cause often for slight uprisings in the Home. These Murks produced sometimes by the careless lighting of a match can be removed and Ulso prevented. To remove n scratch Mark use soap and application of n stiff Nail Brush. To prevent them is a More simple matter. Obtain a Small Quantity of Arbolene and rub the Woodwork Well with it then remove surplus with a flannel rag. You can scratch As much As you will and no Marks will result neither will the match Light. It has been pretty definitely established by pathologist at the experimental station that too Many peas or too much Corn is the real cause of most feed lot Lamb losses. Cornfield feeders Are controlling their losses by systematic herding and the feeding of a variety of feeds such at beet tops Alfalfa stubble and Grain. The same methods can be resorted to in the san Luis Valley using Alfalfa cull potatoes beet tops and sheaf Grain getting the lambs filled up Well before herding on peas. A Good method would be to feed lambs cull spuds in the corrals in the morning then a full feed of Alfalfa Hay and then turn them on the peas. Bring them in at night for another feed of Spud and a Little Hay to last them the night and leave them fairly hungry for a Spud feed in the morning. Alfalfa has been found unsatisfactory in Many cases because the lambs Are not fed enough. A few Mouthful won t keep them from eating too Many peas. They should eat at least two pounds Dally to affect pea consumption. Mineral mixtures Are indicated for certain the Nib but preventing death loss by unlimited feeding of them in the be afield does t seem to be one of them. Theae big 65 to 80-Pound lambs have a big capacity for feed consumption and can t stand the amount of concentrated feed they Are consuming. We have a tendency to look for panaceas and to Hope for some serum or powder that can be administered or fed to solve the trouble. When we get Down to improving our feed management system so that our lambs get a Well balanced ration and Are forced to eat a definite amount of roughage and besides Ore fed a variety of feeds with the peas Only then will these losses come under . J. Maynard Colorado state Experiment station to san Luis Valley feeders. Look to title of lot before purchasing in buying a Home site it is advisable to look up the records in the county treasurer s of lace and see whether or not the property has been posted for failure to pay taxes in the last few years. Most realty companies furnish titles but Many private Sellers Are lurking around waiting to dispose of property upon which they have paid no taxes. Cover water pipes and save much Money where hot and cold water Supply pipes run close together As is invariably the Case there is bound to be More or less dissatisfaction by the user. When one opens a tap marked cold water he has every reason to expect cold water and not something else. Therefore it grates on one s nerves More than a Little bit to get lukewarm water especially when you Are thirsty and want a Cool drink. This system is certainly bad enough in the Small one family residence where running the water a Short time will give one the desired cold water but in some of the new apartment houses that reach fifteen or sixteen stories in the nor it is almost impossible to obtain cold water by opening the cold water Tup unless one loaves it run for n considerable time. On its journey upward or More often downward from the roof tank ii Good Deal of Bont is absorbed in its Contact with the adjoining hot water Supply a pc. An important Point to remember in this Case is that the owner pays for All this water. To remedy this troublesome condition it is advisable that both the hot and cold water Supply pipes be encased in some insulating covering such As hair Felt cock Asbestos etc., so that heat from the hot water will not be radiated and that the cold water will not absorb some of this heat. Insulating both pipes will insure a better hot water Supply As Well As real cold water. The extra Cost of doing this is but a trifle yet it is Seldom done. Remember year in and year out the meter clock is going round and round and the owner pays. Safe Chimney the Chimney or chimneys must add to the color line and hospitable character of the dwelling. Most important is however the need of building them Safe. A Safe Chimney Cost not Over ?10 to $2" move t in a lie be calve Fth Limey and surely it is Mono Well spent. Rations for Brood sows can be grown on farms satisfactory rations for Brood sows can be made up from feeds grown on the farm according to prof. H. B. Hynman of the new York state College of agriculture at Ithaca. Corn Barley Oats boiled cull potatoes and the like can be made the basis of the Energy and heat forming portions of the feed. Growth producing foods can be provided in meat meal Tankage Flash meal Oil meal Alfalfa Hay and Good Kitchen waste. These will also care for a part or All of the Mineral require ments unless the ration is known to be Low in needed minerals. For Ordinary purposes however professor Hynman recommends the following a Hundred pounds of Horn Iny Cornmeal or ground Barley a Hundred pounds each of ground Oats and wheat bran 30 pounds of Oil meal Flash meal or Tankage and 15 pounds of chopped Alfalfa Hay. As a daily ration he suggests feeding from one to three pounds depending of the size and condition of the sow. He says also that if House waste sweepings from the cow mangers or poor silage Are available they May be spread on the ground where the sows can get at them. Skim milk May take the place of the protein part of the above ration he says. The breeder should remember that he is feeding not Only the sow but the Young pigs professor Hynman do clares and he should make ample provision for the heavy Drain on the sow s vitality particularly toward the end of her pregnant period As that is when the most growth of the Young pigs takes place. Food value of molasses feeding molasses has a food value of its own especially in cold weather when its heat producing carbohydrates furnish Energy in abundance. That is one reason Why Stock that is fed molasses will usually be found in the Spring with Slick shiny Coats. It also adds to the palatable Ltd of feeds especially roughage and will encourage the cows to eat More of this. Live Stock items the Only Stock that should be abundantly watered is live Stock. It does not pay to grind or soak Corn for pigs or Large hogs. Keep the horses Busy. Every Day they stand Idle increases their Upkeep. water is essential for All animals but a Bountiful Supply is especially important for Young growing animals. It is perhaps not surprising that the value of skim milk for pigs on pasture seems to be lower than for pigs in dry lot. A Colts should not be shut up in a close poorly ventilated barn neither should they be forced to endure All kinds of weather outdoors. Good shelter saves feed and promotes the growth necessary to develop big horses. Every flock owner knows that it is not nearly so easy to keep the Breeding ewes in Good health during the Winter season while confined to limited quarters and dry feeding As during the summer while out to pasture and having free Range. Exercise is a positive necessity to pig Thrift. If not taken thumps a practically fatal disease Lime develop especially if the ration contains too much Corn and too Little protein. Exercise can be Given by scattering Corn la Straw for the pigs to Hunt. Spiri say Bayer aspirin acce2t Only. Bayer package a which contains proven directions.
