IN this directory we have endeavored to give Shelby coun- 
ty farmers a complete and reliable directory of the 
farmers, breeders and merchants of the county, with 
such other information as will make the directory a valu- 
able reference book. 

The task of calling on every farmer in a county and 
collecting the information for such a directory is a tremen- 
dous one. We have received splendid co-operation from 
the farmers and business men of the county, without which 
the publication of such a directory would be impossible. 
In a very few cases we have found farmers unwilling to 
give the information requested, which accounts for a few 
names that do not appear. 

A few mistakes are bound to occur in a directory that 
involves so large an amount of work, but we have spared 
no effort or expense to make the information complete and 
accurate, and we believe that the mistakes are very few. 

We want to speak a word of appreciation for the ad- 
vertisers whose liberal support has helped materially to bear 
the heavy expense of publishing this directory, and ask that 
you favor them with your patronage whenever possible. 

We hope and believe that the publication of this direc- 
tory will be a real service to Shelby county farmers and 
in line with PRAIRIE FARMER'S policy of service to the 
farmers of Illinois. We hope that the increased circulation 
of PRAIRIE FARMER in Shelby county, which has resulted, 
will help in the movement for better farming, better farm 
living, . and more prosperity for the counties, and that our 
many new friends will become permanent members of the 
big PRAIRIE FARMER family.

To have to await the services of an 
expert when every minute of the har- 
vest days is money is not only an ex- 
pensive practice, but in most cases is 
an unnecessary one if the operator 
will only use patience and good judg- 
ment and try to understand a few 
very simple principles of what seems 
a complicated machine. The purpose 
of this article is to aid the operator 
in his most common binder troubles. 
To cover the ground in the most log- 
ical and concise manner, let us con- 
sider troubles under the three general 
heads: general binder troubles, bind- 
er head troubles and knotter head 
troubles. 

Starting. If possible, start the new 
machine on a road or in a pasture 
before going into the grain field. Use 
plenty of kerosene and run the ma- 
chine empty for about five minutes, 
taking notice that every duct to bear- 
ings and every oil hole is open. Then 
apply lubricating oil. When 1 you are 
ready to enter the grain with a new 
machine, raise the machine well up, 
tilt the platform forward; open the 
throat of the machine by throwing 
the butt adjuster forward and start in 
with about one-half of a full swath. 
After five minutes work the machine 
is ready for maximum results. If 
compelled to make a full swath at the 
start, cut the grain extra high. . 

Never change the adjustment of a 
new binder head before going into the 
field. It may miss a few bundles at 
first, but do not adjust. Apply a lib- 
eral amount of coal oil to the knotter 
head and the trouble will usually dis- 
appear. 

New Machine Failing to Start. Oc- 
casionally a new machine fails to start 
due to some part sticking or catch- 
ing. Throw the binder out of gear 
and see that the bull wheel revolves 
without catching. Remove the eleva- 
tor chain and throw in gear. This 
will test the sickle. Next put on ele- 
vator chain and throw off reel chains. 
This will test the rollers. Then con- 
nect and test the reel. This methad 



will test one part at a time and should 
locate the trouble without difficulty. 
In testing out head for failure to re- 
volve, operate head by hand at back 
of machine through shaft which 
drives head from elevator chain. 

General Binder Troubles 

Chains. Undue wear in chains may 
be caused by the chain being run too 
tight or backwards. Run the chain 
with the hooks of the links leading 
and with the openings of the hooks 
out. The use of oil or grease on 
chains, if the binder is being run in 
a sandy country or under dusty con- 
ditions, is not to be recommended, 
for the oil will collect the fine parti- 
cles of grit and cause excessive wear. 
Under such conditions use dry graph- 
ite. Chain jumping is caused by the 
chain being too loose or by the 
sprocket being badly worn. If a worn 
sprocket is the cause for the trouble 
a new one will have to be supplied. 

Canvas Troubles. The creeping of 
canvases is caused by running them 
too loose or by the elevators not be- 
ing square. Test the elevators to see 
if they are square by means of meas- 
uring the diagonals, and then square 
by the special apparatus to be found 
for that purpose. Have the canvases 
of the same tightness on both sides. 

Canvases not elevating the grain 
may be Caused by missing slats or 
loose canvases. Broken slats are gen- 
erally caused by the elevators not be- 
ing square, or by the canvases not 
being buckled evenly and thus the 
slat is forced to pass over the roller 
at an angle to it. Chewed slats may 
be caused by a projecting bolt or the 
canvas guides being out 6. shape. 

Heavy Draft. Heavy draft may be 
caused from lack of sufficient good 
lubricating oil, bull wheel being en- 
tered in quadrant wrong; chains, espe- 
cially main drive chain, being I too 
tight; paint or varnish not being .cut 

but of the bearings; or rollers binding. 
Apply lubricating oil to the bearings, 



10 



T( 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, SHELBY COUNTY 



Enter the bull wheel in the quadrant 
square. Have the proper tension in 
the chains. Coal oil will cut the paint 
or varnish from bearing surfaces. 
When machine is empty, operator 
should be able to move elevators by 
hand on elevator chain. 

Sidedraft. Sidedraft in a binder re- 
fers to such resistance of the platform 
end of the machine as to cause a 
"dragging" of platform, and hence re- 
sults in a tendency to run the ma- 
chine into the grain. It may be 
caused by (a) grain wheel bearing 
too light; (b) grain wheel being out 
of proper adjustment; (c) sickle parts 
not cutting properly, resulting in a 
pulling off of stalks rather than cut- 
ting; (d) very light grain may give a 
condition where sidedraft is more no- 
ticeable, and (e) a fast horse on the 
outside may lead the operator to be- 
lieve he has sidedraft. 

Remedies, (a) See that grain wheel 
revolves freely and perfectly on axle. 
If axle, bearings and wheel bell are 
badly worn, replace, (b) The inexpe- 
rienced operator cannot tell whether 
a grain wheel is aligned properly or 
not. It should lead out of the grain 
slightly, and in case of poor aligrv- 
ment here, an expert must be called. 
(c) Obvious, (d) Sidedraft here is 
an advantage rather than an objec- 
tion for it indicates the best construc- 
tion, (e) Put fast horse on inside. 

If difficulty is experienced in get- 
ting far enough into the grain with a 
tongue truck attachment, make adjust- 
ments to increase the angle between 
the platform and tongue proper, i. e., 
without changing position of machine 
make adjustments to let horses away 
from grain slightly. If machine runs 
too far into grain, make adjustments 
to bring horses a little closer to grain 
line. These adjustments can be found 
between tongue and stub tongue on 
the McCormick and Milwaukee bind- 
ers, and in the truck axle braces on 
the Deering. If sufficient .adjustment 
is not provided in the Deering to per- 
mit a full swath, turn the tongue over. 

Badly Shaped Bundles in good 
grain are caused by improper manip- 
ulation of binder parts. Set the reel 
to strike straws about two inches be- 
low the heads. Run the butter as 
near at right angles to the rollers on 
tier, shaft as possible, even if you 
have to sacrifice an inch or two in 



the position of the band on the bun- 
dle. Do not expect the butter to 
shove the straws down under the 
breast plate. Adjust the position of 
the head to bring the straws under 
the breast plate and then adjust the 
butter to smooth the butt of the bun- 
dle. In uneven grain the head, but- 
ter and reel must be shifted often to 
obtain the best results. In very short 
grain or in down grain leaning toward 
the elevators we have probably the 
worst conditions for good bundle 
making, especially for eight-foot bind- 
ers. First, do all possible to retard 
the heads by running the platform as 
level as possible and place a rope 
head-retarder across the platform, ty- 
ing the same to the outside divider 
frame. A rope head-retarder is often 
found to give better results than the 
retarding strap iron sent out with the 
machine, but if the latter is used, the 
operator will find that he gets very 
good results *in retarding heads by 
bending up or crinkling the end of 
the strap iron. Throw the head as 
far forward as possible and run the 
butter as' near perpendicular to the 
rollers as possible to still have the 
bundle securely tied. Tighten the 
front grain check. > 

Badly Shaped Bundles in Long 
Tangled Grain can be remedied by 
loosening all grain checks slightly 
and by adjusting the head to tie a 
smaller, looser bundle. 

Getting Grain Down to Packers. 
Trouble is sometimes experienced in 
getting light, fluffy grain down to the 
packers. See that the deck roller is 
working properly and lower the deck 
cover. 

Choking Down. Sometimes in 
heavy, fluffy and tangled grain, and 
often in flax, the head cannot dis- 
charge a bundle and is stopped by 
"choking." Adjust the head to tie a 
smaller, looser bundle, loosen all 
grain checks and loosen the tension 
on the compressor spring, which is 
the spring attached to the compres- 
sor rod. 

Bundles Too Loose or Too Tight. 
Tighten or loosen the trip spring 
shown in Illustration 1 and described 
below under "Binder Head Troubles." 
Do not attempt to make a tight bun- 
dle by tightening the twine tension oh 
the twine can. The twine tension" is 
not for the purpose of affecting the

tightness of bundles and if it is used 
for such purpose serious needle 
troubles will result. The twine ten- 
sion should be sufficiently tight to 
keep back slack in the twine between 
the can and needle. 

Bundles Tbo Large or Too Small. 
Move the compressor arm nearer or 
farther away from the needle. The 
compressor arm is that arm against 
which the bundle is formed and as it 
is moved in or out that space in which 
the bundle is formed is changed. 

Reel Troubles. Short oats is often 
the cause for considerable reel trouble, 
especially reel breakage on those ma- 
chines which have no outside reel 
support. The operator cutting short 
oats will necessarily have to tilt his 
platform well forward and run his 
reel low. This means that occasion- 
ally the reel slats will whip down 
onto the guards and result in broken 
parts. Farmers in some localities 
have solved this difficulty by tacking 
on to each' reel slat a piece of heavy 
linoleum about six inches wide. The 
reel can then be run higher, for this 
extra piece on the slats serves ad- 
mirably to force the grain over onto 
the platform and at the same time is 
sufficiently flexible to give if the reel 
is whipped down on the guards. 

Binder Head Troubles 

Before taking up binder head trou- 
bles let us refer to the first illustra- 
tion and get clearly in mind the exact 
function of the parts mentioned. 
Every operator is aware that his 
packer shaft revolves continually and 



that at certain moments it must drive 
the whole binder head while the bun- 
dle is being tied and cast. The dog, 
shown in the illustration, is that 
mechanism which throws the head 
in motion with the rest of the ma- 
chine, or it is that mechanism which 
momentarily engages the head with 
the continuous motioa of the packers 
while the bundle is being tied. Suf- 
ficient pressure by the straw on the 
trip arm raises the stop arm, shown 
in the illustration, which allows the 
dog to be forced into the path of the 
continually revolving binder head 
driver. A little spring attached to the 
dog forces the dog into the path of 
this driver when the dog is released, 
and this same spring holds the dog in 
this path until the stop arm can drop 
back into pl^cs and force the dog 
back out of the way of the revolving 
drivers ol the packer sh^ft. When 
the dog is thrown back out of the 
path of the binder head drivers, the 
motion in the head ceases and the 
dog, if properly working, must re- 
main engaged with the packer shaft 
until the discharge arms make a com- 
plete revolution. The continuity of 
motion in the head depends upon the 
dog. 

Discharge Arms Fail to Start or 
Fail to Revolve Completely. This is 
a dog trouble. See that the dog spring 
is in place and is of sufficient strength 
to hold the dog in the path of the 
binder head drivers when the dog is 
released. See also that the striking 
faces of the dog and dog driver are 
not worn sufficiently to permit them 



12 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, SHELBY COUNTY 



to slip by one another. If the dis- 
charge arms revolve by jerks it is very 
probable that a worn condition in the 
striking faces js the cause. 

Discharge* Armr Revolve Continu- 
ally. Before discussing this trouble a 
word should be said regarding timing. 
It will be noticed that every part of 
the binder head except the packers 
works at a certain moment in rela- 
tion to other parts. The dog makes a 
certain number of revolutions before 
the stop arm is allowed to drop back 
<nto place to throw the dog out of 
Engagement with the binder head 
Drivers. Hence the relation between 
*he stop arm and the dog is a set 
Delation maintained through beveled 
gears. If for any reason these gears 
*re separated and not put back in the 
Original definite relation to each 
rtther, the head is said to be out of 
ime. This means that the stop arm 
*'ould not be in place at the proper 
nioment to throw the dog out of en- 
gagement and a second revolution of 
*he discharge arm immediately fol- 
lows the first. The timing principle 
holds true in all makes of heads and 
s obtained in a way more or less 
common in all types, though the 
Mechanism will vary to some degree 
to its shape and position. If the dis- 
aharge arms revolve continually the 
^ead may be out of time or the stop 
nrm face may be so badly worn that 
*t allows the dog to slip by when the 
* c vo come together. If the machine is 
*tit of time, i. e., if the stop arm is 
t>ot in place to throw the dog out in 
the proper time, time the head by 
properly meshing the beveled gears 
between the packer shaft and the 
binder head counter shaft which runs 
up to drive the tier shaft. If the 
striking faces between the dog and 
the stop arm are so worn that they 
<slip by one another, file the faces to 
their original form. If this allows 
*oo much play or looseness in the 
*og (which can be tested by taking 
"lold of the discharge arms to deter- 
mine whether they are tight or loose) 
- new dog or perhaps a new stop 
-mi must be purchased. Some ma- 
lines permit lengthening of the stop 
~- f m. Look for such adjustment and 
use same to hold the dog back tighter. 

Casting Very Small Bundles. There 
are two causes for this trouble. The 
dog may not be thrown out at the 



proper time, and the remedy for such 
a condition has been just stated above. 
Small bundles often appear in badly 
langled grain when the cast bundle is 
not cleaned from the machine and its 
weight trips the head again immedi- 
ately and a small bundle is cast which 
seems to be really a -part of the first. 
Manipulate the machine to make a 
clean bundle, loosen the grain checks, 
adjust the trip spring to tie a looser 
bundle and adjust the compressor arm 
to tie a smaller bundle. 

Discharge Arms Not Set Tight, or 
Dog Drive Strikes Dog. Usually 
these two conditions accompany one 
another and are due to extreme wear 
in gears and dog, or tier shaft lock 
may have become loosened. The tier 
shaft lock is usually a little dog 
working behind the tier shaft cam 
wheel at the end of the tier shaft. It 
holds the discharge arms in place 
when they are at rest. Examine your 
binder head for this mechanism and 
it can be adjusted usually the 
trouble can be remedied by such ad- 
justment. If the cam track in tier 
shaft cam wheel acts as the lock, 
new parts may have to be added to 
relieve badly worn conditions, but 
this will not necessarily remedy the 
striking between dog and driver. If 
head is very badly worn and all gear- 
ing has considerable play, the dog 
may be advanced one cog which will 
bring the head into better time. Great 
care must be used in doing this, how- 
ever, for it often happens that a head 
so treated will work perfectly when 
operated by hand, but when driven 
by the packer shaft under actual con- 
ditions the tier shaft is not compelled 
to complete its revolution and thus is 
not "driven home" and locked. This 
will then result in the discharge arms 
dropping down and in greater inter- 
ference between dog and driver. It 
is sometimes found necessary to re- 
place badly worn gears, in order to 
entirely eliminate this trouble. 

Knotter Head Troubles 

All binders are very similar. They 
combine the same principles, and al- 
though the detail of the mechanism 
may differ somewhat, still for every 
vital part on one make of machine 
there can be found on each other 
machine a part similar in function, 
very similar in shape, and often very 



13 



PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 




similar in position. This is particu- 
larly true in the knotter head or that 
portion of the binder head which ties 
the knot. In discussing these troubles 
then, let us bear in mind that every 
make of binder has in some form 
each part shown in the second illus- 
tration, and that the functions of these 
parts are the same though the posi- 
tion and shape may vary slightly. 

The disc is that part which holds 
the end of the twine while the bundle 
is being formed. The bills, also shown 
in the ^illustration, are those parts 
which tie the knot. It is the function 
of the needle to bring up the needle 
end of the band, place it over the 
bills and into the disc where the disc 
catches it and securely holds both 
snds. The bills then revolve, forming 
a loop about themselves, and after 
revolving part way they open, seize 
both ends of the band, as shown in 
the illustration, and hold the ends of 
the band while the stripper arm pulls 



the loop off the bills hence the ends 
of the band are pulled through the 
loop and the knot is tied. If these 
operations are kept clearly in mind 
the operator will find his tying trou- 
bles greatly simplified. 

Each operator should be able to 
tell just where his trouble lies by ex- 
amining the failing band and noting 
where it is found. 

In the third illustration, Figure 1 
found clinging to the bills with the 
simple knot tied around the bills and 
the loose end cut square and smooth, 
indicates that the disc spring is too 
loose and the twine tension is too 
tight. 

The same band found cast with the 
bundle instead of clinging to the bills 
would indicate that the disc is but 
slightly loose, yet too loose. The 
band indicating such trouble is shown 
in Fig. 2. 

Fig. 3 found clinging to the Dills 
but with the free end crushed and 



14 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, SHELBY COUNTY 




ragged indicates that the disc is too 
tight and that the twine tension is 
also too tight. 

Fig. 4 found cast with the bundle 
instead of on the bills indicates that 
the twine tension is perfect but that 
the disc is slightly too tight. 

Fig. 5 found with the cast bundle 
and with both ends crushed and 
ragged indicates that the disc is very 
tight. e 

Notice the bent crinkled .ends in 
Fig. 6 and that the band is formed 
with the bundle. The ends have been 
in the knot but have pulled out. The 
bills may be too loose or the "hump" 
on the underside of the upper bill 
may be worn away sufficiently so that 
the bills cannot hold the ends of the 
band securely enouerh when the loop 
is pulled off. This probably has 
caused a loose knot which pulled out 
when the bundle spread. If the bills 
are too loose tighten the bills spring. 
If the little "hump" is worn away 
file away a little of the stock behind 
the hump, using a rat-tail file. 

Fig. 8 is the familiar band which 
seems to be tied perfectly when the 
bundle is first cast, but when the 
shocker grasps the bundle the band 
gives way and appears as shown. If 
the disc is at the proper tension, then 
the trouble is probably that the bills 
do not open wide enough to grasp 
both ends of the twine in the disc. 
If the bills cam roller on the back of 
the upper bill is worn one-sided, sup- 



ply new parts. If the whole bills 
shaft has dropped down due to wear 
below the bills pinion gear, place a 
very thin washer under pinion to 
bring the bills up against the knotter 
head frame where they belong. It 
sometimes happens that a very loose 
twine tension allows sufficient slack 
in the twine to arch slightly over the 
bills instead of being pulled down 
tightly over them. The upper bill 
will then nose in between the bands' 
ends instead of grasping both of them 
and a simple slip knot is tied instead 
of a hard knot. 

Fig. 9 indicates a needle trouble. 
For some reason the needle has not 
placed the twine in the disc. Most 
likely the needle has carried up some 
green stuff of some kind which mo- 
mentarily clogs the disc. If this band 
occurs frequently, however, then prob- 
ably the eye of the needle has be- 
come so badly worn back, due to too 
tight a tension, that the needle can 
not advance far enough to place the 
twine in the disc. The needle should 
advance until it just barely touches 
the stripper or breast plate. If it 
does not advance that far it is prob- 
ably slow and the needle pitman 
should be shortened slightly. 

Make all binder head and knotter 
head adjustments gradually. A quar- 
ter of a turn of the studs on the disc 
and knotter bills springs is ample to 
remedy most troubles in those parti,

CORN PLANTER ADJUSTMENTS 

By C. O. Reed, University of Illinois in Prairie Farmer. 



Not all of our implement troubles 
are to be found in the plow or in the 
binder. The corn planter has troubles 
of its own, and it is the purpose of 
this article to discuss some of the 
corn planter principles and troubles 
that are often misunderstood. 

Accuracy in Drop 

Some corn growers say that ac- 
curacy of drop is not an important 
factor with them because two kernels 
in one hill and four in the next gives 
an average of three kernels per hill 
and that is the number desired. The 
fallacy of this statement is very ap- 
parent when we stop to consider that 
in such planting we have not the de- 
sired three kernels in either hill; and 
if the soil is three-kernel soil, two 
kernels per hill are too few while 
four kernels are too many. The re- 
sult is probably a loss in each hill. 

A certain soil may give the best 
yield with either two, three or four 
kernels per hill, but after it has been 
ascertained which number of kernels 
is best every effort should be made to 
secure that number in each hill where 
the soil conditions remain constant. 
The variable drop devices on planters 
afford ample opportunity to shift from 
two to three or from three to four 
kernels per hil-1 as the soil conditions 
through the row may demand, but 
the advisability of permitting inac- 
curacy in drop from hill to hill is 
questionable. 

The first two requisites for accu- 
racy in drop are (a) seed of uniform 
size, and (b) the selection of the 
proper seed plate. Hand tipped and 
butted corn or machine sorted corn 
will give seed as uniform in shape 
and size of kernel as is practical, but 
unsorted seed may be relied upon to 
cause inaccurate dropping. 

Testing out the planter to make 
sure that the proper plate is used is 
to be strongly advocated. Last year's 
plate may not be the best one for this 
year's ,seed, for if there is a slight 
difference in the average size of ker- 
nels between the two years, a corre- 
sponding change may be necessary in 



the size of the seed pits in the plate 
used. The following table taken from 
laboratory tests shows the danger of 
carelessness in selecting the seed 
plate. The planter was set to drop 
three-kernel hills, and the plates 
"small" and "large" were plates next 
size smaller and next size larger than 
the proper or right sized plate found. 

Right 

Small sized Large 
plate plate plate 

Per cent of blank hill.. 9.34 .00 .00 
Per cent of hills contain- 
ing I kernel 29.36 .26 .28 

Per cent of hills contain- 
ing 2 kernels 37.54 8.66 5.3 

Per cent of hills contain- 
ing 3 kernels 20.48 88.12 81.28 

Per cent of hills contain- 
ing 4 kernels 2.66 2.84 11.48 

Per cent of hills contain- 
ing 5 kernels 62 .12 1.66 

These figures tend to show that a 
slight mistake in plate selection may 
lead to a direct loss in stand. There 
may be but a very slight difference 
between two pairs of plates so slight 
perhaps that we can not detect the 
difference by eye but a test of the 
two pairs will quickly show that one 
of those pairs means a good drop 
while the other paii is dangerous and 
its use should be avoided. Testing 
can be done when time at the barn 
permits and will not only mean a sav- 
ing of time in the field but will also 
enable the operator to avoid a mis- 
take before it is too late. 

Each operator will have his own 
method of testing out the planter but 
he should heed these three rules: (1) 
Let each test consist of at least SO or 
60 hills; (2) run the planter parts at 
field speed; (3) do not give up until 
the best plate is found. Probably the 
quickest way to test is to run the 
planter in the farm yard, providing 
the chickens do not get the corn be- 
fore we can count it. Rainy day test- 
ing on the barn floor is a little more 
troublesome but can be very success- 
fully accomplished by two persons as 
follows Jack the planter up 'over a 
blanket stretched tight on the floor so 
that the furrow openers will be about 
three inches above the blanket when 



16 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, SHELBY COUNTY 



the depth lever is thrown forward. 
One man can then turn the drive 
wheel, trip the check arm and call out 
the number of kernels dropped, while 
the second person records the count. 
After each hill is dropped the kernels 
are brushed away by foot of the man 
turning the drive wheel. Glancing at 
the drop without recording the count 
simplifies the process but it is not 
an accurate method and should be 
avoided when possible. 

Accuracy of drop may be secured 
further by keeping the seed hoppers 
at least half full at all times. 

Blank Hills at the Ends of Rows 
Accuracy of drop depends also to 
some extent upon the speed of the 
valves. It sometimes happens that at 
one end of the row we will happen to 
stop the team just as the button on 
the check wire has begun to force 
the check arm. The valves work so 
slowly at such a time or stop at such 
a point that in some planters the seed 
at the top of the boot drops clear 
through to the ground instead of be- 
ing intercepted at the bottom of the 
boot. Two hills drop at once, then, 
and when we have turned around 
there are no kernels at the lower 
valve ready for the first hill on the 
return trip. On some planters we 
may overcome the difficulty by foot 
dropping one hill while the team is 
turning. On other planters the only 
remedy is to stop sooner at the end 
of the row or to drive ahead at usual 
speed until the wire has released, the 
check arm. 



Accuracy in Check 

Considerable attention is usually 
given to securing accurate checking, 
but a word regarding the adjustment 
will not be amiss. Accurate checking 
means possibility of closer cultivation 
and less loss by cultivating out hills. 
The manufacturer has found that un- 
der usual conditions the check wire 
will travel from one to three inches 
across the field, and inasmuch as the 
slack will always be ahead of the 
machine, he designs his planter to 
drop the hill at a distance behind the 
button equal to one-half the travel. 
On the return trip the hill is again 
dropped behind the button and thus 
the hills should check in spite of the 
wire travel. It can readily be seen 
then that if r our shoes or furrow 
openers are chopping nearer to or 
farther away from the button than 
half the wire travel, our system for 
securing good checking will be ma- 
terially interfered with and adjust- 
ments must be made at A in Fig. 1. 

This tongue adjustment will vary 
on the different makes of planters. 
On some it is at the rear end of the 
tongue, but it will be found on aH 
the popular makes. As a rule the 
front frame of the planter should be 
run level, and it can be so run with a 
properly drawn check wire. But dif- 
ferent tensions^ on the wire drawn 
by different drivers may necessitate 
throwing the front frame slightly out 
of a horizontal position. If the 
planter drops too close to the button, 
make such tongue adjustment as "will

A Spread Check Fork May Cause Stringing 1 



drop the furrow openers back a little 
toward the wheels. To some extent 
tightening the check wire will accom- 
plish the same result in the check. 
Forcing the furrow openers a little 
ahead by means of the tongue adjust- 
ment will cause the hill to be dropped 
a little clo~e to the button, or having 
the check wire a little more slack will 
have the same result in the check. 
In testing for accuracy of check by 
digging up hills, select hills pretty 
close behind the planter. Adjusting 
the neckyoke straps will also affect 
the check. The adjustment shown in 
Fig. 1 is also a means of maintaining 
a good check when different heights 
of teams are used and when the dif- 
ference cannot be compensated for 
by adjusting the neckyoke straps. 

Uniform tension in the check wire 
must be maintained if accurate check- 
ing is to result. Some drivers even 
go so far as to make allowance for 
the expansion and contraction of the 
check wire due to rarying tempera- 



ture from day to day, but this is get- 
ting too particular to be practical. 
It is practical, however, where plant- 
ing is being done up ~nd down a 
slope, to pull the wire tighter when 
setting the high stake. 

Uniform Depth of Planting 
In planting over a rough field, a 
more uniform depth can often be se- 
cured by floating the furrow openers, 
but when this is done the operator 
should keep the openers under foot 
control so that the shoes may be 
forced to their depth in dry spots and 
kept from planting too deep in moist, 
soft spots. There are a number of 
shoe gauges now on the market which 
attach to shoes to insure uniform 
depth when floating is desirable. Such 
attachments should prove valuable if 
properly used where the conditions 
demand. Stringing of the hill may 
be caused by (a) dirt in the boot, and 
(b) by a spread check arm. Trouble 
frem the first cause will probably be 



18 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, SHELBY COyNTY 



due to the team having set back on 
the planter while the shoes were still 
in the ground. Clean out the boot 
bottom thoroughly and the rest of the 
remedy is obvious. Trouble (b) is 
less easily detected. If the check arm 
is spread as is shown at B in Fig. 2, 
the wire button will let go of the 
check arm before the valves have 
been forced wide open, to the result 
that the kernels will be strung out in 
the row rather than being dropped 
well together. By means of a ham- 
mer, drive the arm halves together to 
their original position, but in so doing 
care must be taken not to get the 
halves so closely together that bind- 
ing of the wire will result. The check 
arm halves can be left straight as 
shown at A in Fig. 2. Some opera- 
tors find that stringing is due to a 
badly worn shoe. If this is deter- 
mined to be the cause, new parts must 
usually be supplied. 

Clutch Troubles 

Clutches on the various planters 
differ so widely in design that no spe- 
cific rules can be given that would 
apply to all makes. Failure of the 
clutch to grip or release can often be 
overcome by thoroughly cleaning the 
parts, and if the striking forces are 
worn round, new parts may have to 
be secured. On most planters this 
means but slight expense and a little 
patience. 

Timing the Plate Rims 

Breakage may necessitate removal 
of the rim which drives the plate. 
This rim is timed with the pinion on 
the shaft which drives the plates from 
the clutch, and when the rim is re- 
placed on the machine the "time" must 
be re-established. If the plate rim is 
out of time with the pinion, inaccu- 
racy will result because the plate it- 
self will not stop" at the proper time. 

On some machines the cog teeth of 
the rim and pinion are so marked or 
constructed that it is very easy to 
ascertain the proper refation between 
the two castings. Before removing 
the rim the operator should carefully 
seek any such guides so that he may 
know just how to replace the parts. 
Tf no guide is found on the arm and 
on the shaft pinion, make a mark on 
each by means^ of a cold chisel, and 
then in replacing 'parts bring these 



two marks into the same relation to 
each other as at first. It sometimes 
happens that after replacing a rim or 
adding a new one, it breaks as soon 
as it revolves. This is due to non- 
timing. 

The question is often asked: "Is 
the disc furrow opener preferable to 
the ordinary shoe runner?" The sin- 
gle disc opener has better penetration 
than the shoe and will cut through 
trash to better advantage, but it 
throws the soil to one side and cover- 
ing is made more difficult. The dou- 
ble disc has less penetrating ability 
than the single disc, but covering can 
be more easily accomplished after it. 

In hard, trashy ground, then, the 
disc opener should prove preferable 
to the shoe opener, but in a well pre- 
pared seed bed, well free from surface 
trash, the shoe is strongly advocated 
because of its simplicity. The planter 
with disc openers cannot be consid- 
ered a heavy draft implement, but the 
discs carry bearings which must work 
in soil and one may always expect 
trouble with such a combination.

LIVESTOCK FARMER'S MEDICINE CHEST 



By Dr. A. S. Alexander in Prairie Farmer. 



When a farmer can employ a com- 
petent graduate veterinarian at rea- 
sonable expense it always is best to 
do so, and in all serious cases such 
expert help should be used even if 
the expense will be considerable. 
Unfortunately it is not always pos- 
sible to find such an expert or he may 
live at such a distance that an ordinary 
or trivial case will not warrant the 
expense of his employment, or the 
nearest veterinarian may not be a 
properly qualified practitioner, or is 
one in whom the stockman has no 
confidence. 

For these reasons every owner of 
animals should keep some simple 
remedies on hand, and these are nec- 
essary even on farms where profes- 
sional assistance can readily be had. 
It should be understood, however, 
that the untrained farmer should not 
attempt the administration of strong 
poisons, alkaloids and many prepara- 
tions used hypodermically by a gradu- 
ate veterinarian. Such preparations 
are extremely dangerous in the hands 
of the layman and are liable to do 
much more harm than good. The 
trained surgeon also should be de- 
pended upon for all major operations. 

A cupboard may be set apart for 
storing medicines in a cool, dry place 
and where freezing will not occur in 
winter. A glass graduate and scales 
will be necessary for measuring and 
weighing medicines. Powdered drugs 
should be kept in tightly closed glass 
fruit jars and should be plainly labeled. 
They may soon lose their strength if 
exposed to the air. Poisons should 
b kept on a separate part of a shelf 
partitioned off for the purpose and 
away from simple, harmless drugs. 
Ointments, with the exception of fly 
blister, should be made up fresh at 
time of use. Liniment may be pre- 
pared and kept indefinitely if well 
corked. 

The medicine case should also have 
a special division in which to keep a 
few instruments, bandages, suture silk 



and absorbent cotton; or bette-r still, 
these may be kept in a handbag for 
immediate use as required. The 
emergency bag should contain a roll 
of absorbent cotton, several rolled 
three-yard bandages of unbleached 
muslin in strips three inches wide, a 
pound or two of oakum, a spool of 
strong suture silk, half a dozen suture 
needles of assorted shapes and sizes, 
most of them large; a half-ounce, 
short-barreled, strong-nozzled hard 
rubber syringe, a two-ounce metal 
syringe, a cow trocar and canula for 
tapping a blodted animal, a pair of 
curved shears, a combination operat- 
ing knife containing a curved bistoury, 
a probe pointed bistoury and a strong 
straight scalpel, a few milking tubes 
and a teat bistoury, an artery forceps, 
metal probe, castrating knife and pair 
of horse clippers. 

These will suffice, but there are 
many other useful instruments such 
as a clinical thermometer, horse tro- 
car, catheter and dentistry "float," 
which may be added from time to 
time. Some of the medicines to be 
listed later may also have a place in 
the emergency kit or bag, notably 
those needed for the treatment of 
wounds, and at hand should be a 
strong quart drenching bottle and ten 
feet of quarter-inch cotton rope with 
which to hold up a horse's head for 
drenching. A veterinary force pump 
is added on a large farm, but its place 
may be taken by three feet of new 
lawn sprinkling hose fitted with a 
large tin funnel. This is used to give 
a horse or cow a rectal injection. 
There should also be a six-foot piece 
of new half-inch rubber tubing for 
use in giving a cow or mare a vaginal 
injection. 

Simple necessary medicines may 
best be listed under the following 
special heads: 

Physics. 

Epsom and Glauber Salts. Average 
dose for an adult cow, one pound in 



20 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, SHELBY COUNTY 



three pints of warm water. Dose for 
a horse, 12 ounces. 

)Castor Oil. Especially useful for 
young animals. Dose for a calf or 
foal, from 1 to* 6 tablespoonfuls 
shaken up in milk. 

Raw Linseed Oil (not boiled, which 
is poisonous). Average dose, one pint 
for constipation and to follow a dose 
of colic medicine, or contain medicine 
for colic. 

Barbados Aloes (freshly powdered). 
Average dose, one ounce, to be given 
to an adult horse as a "physic ball." 
Wound Medicines. 

Keep in stock one pint each of car- 
bolic acid and coal tar disinfectant and 
a gallon can of the latter for dipping 
and disinfecting purposes. Two tea- 
spoonfuls to a pint of water ordinarily 
makes a sufficiently strong solution. 
Bleeding is stopped by applying Mon- 
sel's solution of iron on oakum or 
cotton batting, or applying Monsel's 
powder. As a wound lotion also keep 
ort hand a mixture of one ounce of 
sugar of lead and six drams of sul- 
phate of zinc in one pint of water. 
This is called "white lotion" and 
should be plainly labeled "poison" and 
well shaken before use. 

Dusting Powders. 

A dusting powder of equal parts of 
slacked lime, charcoal and sulphur is 
useful for application to surface 
wounds and sores. Boracic acid also 
is needed and a little iodoform may 
be added to keep flies away. 

Liniments. 

Keep on hand a pint (pound) each 
of turpentine and aqua ammonia. 
One ounce each of these mixed with 
a pint of soft water, in which two 
raw eggs have been shaken up and 
the mixture left for 24 hours, will 
make a good stimulating liniment; or 
one ounce of each may be mixed with 
6 to 14 ounces of raw linseed oil to 
make a very strong or comparatively 
mild liniment. 

Lotions. 

"White lotion" for wounds has al- 
ready been mentioned. Equal quan- 
tities of lime water and raw linseed 
oil make "carron oil," an excellent 
lotion for burns. Two to four ounces 
of Goulard's extract and one to two 
ounces of glycerine in one quart of 



soft water form a useful Iqtio_n for 
scratches and mud fever of itchiness 
and "gumminess" of the legs. A good 
lotion for inflammation of the udder 
is made by mixing together one part 
each of fluid extracts of poke root and 
belladonna leaves and one part of tur- 
pentine with five parts of sweet oil, 
melted lard or camphorated oil. * It is 
made weaker or stronger as required. 
Anodyne lotion for painful swellings 
is made by combining equal quantities 
of tinctures of opium, aconite, bella- 
donna and druggists' soap liniment. 
A small quantity of chloroform may 
fre added. Mouth lotion consists of 
an ounce of powdered borax or alum 
in a quart of soft water; eye lotion of 
half a dram each of sulphate of zinc 
and fluid extract of belladonna in a 
quart of soft water. 

Tonics. 

Fowler's solution of arsenic is a 
good general tonic for rundown, thin, 
hidebound horses and those afflicted 
with chronic skin diseases or heaves 
(broken wind). The average dose is 
half an ounce (one tablespoonful) 
given night and morning until one 
quart has been given. The medicine 
may then be gradually discontinued, 
taking at least a week to the work. 
Dried sulphate of iron (copperas), 
dose one dram night and morning, is 
another good tonic, commonly com- 
bined with an equal dose of ground 
gentian root or ginger root, nux 
vomica, saltpeter and fenugreek as a 
condition powder. The dose is one 
tablespoonful of the combination of 
drugs mixed in the feed night and 
morning for ten days. Omit sulphate 
of iron for pregnant animals. Nux is 
poisonous and must therefore be given 
with care. It is most useful as a 
nerve tonic and appetizer. 

Colic Medicines. 

Keep in stock one pound each of 
laudanum (dose, 1 to 2 ounces); es- 
sence of ginger root (dose, 1 to 2 
drams); sulphuric acid (dose, y 2 to 1 
ounce); turpentine (dose, 1 to 2 
ounces); granular hpyosulphite of 
soda (dose, 1 to 4 ounces). A dose of 
each of the first three medicines in a 
pint of water containing two ounces 
of hpyosulphite of soda will prove 
effective for most colics. Two ounces 
of turpentine in a pint of raw linseed 
oil may be given for "wind" (flatulent) 



21 



PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



colic, or following the other medicine 
when the pain of "cramp" (spasmodic) 
colic has subsided. 

Fever Medicines. 

Powdered saltpeter is an important 
drug for animals. It is given in the 
fever of influenza, founder (laminitis) 
or lymphangitis (milk leg, also for 
stocking of the legs and other large 
swellings. A dram is the average 
dose. Give it every four or six hours 
in fever, twice daily for swellings, or 
with tonics as a condition powder, and 
in double doses for founder or milk 
leg. Do not give it in colt distemper, 
when abscesses are forming. It may 
often be administered in drinking 
water or a bran mash or damp feed. 
It also is given in tablespoonful doses 
once or twice daily for garget of the 
cow. Beware of aconite often given 
for fever. It is too dangerous a poison 
to be safely used by anyone other than 
a trained doctor. 

Blister. 

An effective blistering ointment is 
made by melting together three parts 
of lard and one-quarter part of finely 
shaved yellow beeswax, and then 
stirring in one part of powdered can- 
tharides (Spanish fly). Stir in a tin 
dish until cold, then store in a capped 
glass fruit jar. It improves with age. 
When using this blister clip off the 
hair, wash ahe skin clean, dry it per- 
fectly. Tie the horse up short in his 
stall, rub the blister in for fifteen 
minutes and then smear on some more 
blister. Wash the blister off in 48 
hours and then apply a little lard 
daily. Do not cover a blistered part, 
or rub it on the loins, or on top of 
the hips, or use it after a poultice, or 
on irritated skin, or in very hot or 
cold weather. 

Absorbents. 

Never be without tincture of iodine 
to swab on swollen glands, tumors, 
forming abscesses, bony growths, 
capped or puffed joints, indolent sores 
or wounds, canker of the mouth in 
pigs and ringworm spots. It also is 
useful to inject into abscesses fistula 
and lump jaw cavities. Iodine oint- 
ment is made by mixing one dram 
each of iodine crystals and iodide of 
potash in one ounce of lard. This is 
used on swellings, sore necks and 
shoulders, puffs of all sorts, tumors, 



forming abscesses, ringworm spots 
and enlargements of the udder. * As 
an absorbent blister rub up one dram 
of biniodide of mercury with two 
ounces of the fly blister already men- 
tioned and use on bony growths, such 
as splints and ringbone, callouses, 
indolent sores, tumors of the udder. 

Worm Medicines. 

Gasoline is kept on most farms and 
in tablespoonful doses in six ounces of 
milk is the best remedy for stomach 
worms in sheep. Lambs take less in 
proportion. Two ounces of turpen- 
tine in a pint of raw linseed oil is 
effective as a starting dose for a 
"wormy horse." Follow with worm 
powders composed of equal parts of 
salt, sulphur and dried sulphate of 
Von. Dose, one tablespoonful night 
and morning for a week, then skip ten 
days and repeat. Omit iron for preg- 
nant animals. For worms of swine 
give one teaspoonful of turpentine in 
slop for three consecutive days for 
each eighty pounds of body weight; 
or one dram of dried sulphate of iron 
in slop for five successive mornings 
for each hundred pounds of body 
weight. Where swine are known to 
be seriously infested with worms, give 
eight grains of santonin and five 
grains of calomel in a little slop for 
each hundred pounds of body weight. 
Divide the pigs into lots of five and 
give the medicine in a little slop after 
starving the animals for eighteen 
hours. Care must be taken to 4jive 
only the doses here prescribed, else 
damage may be done. 

Disinfectants. 

^ In the paragraph on wound medi- 
cines it has been advised to keep car- 
bolic acid and coal tar disinfectant in 
stock. To these may be added for- 
maldehyde, bichloride of mercury 
tablets and permanganate of potash 
crystals. In disinfecting a stable a 
solution of four or five ounces of for- 
maldehyde to the gallon, or a 1-1,000 
of bichloride of mercury (corrosive 
sublimate) or a 1-30 solution of car- 
bolic acid or coal tar disinfectant 
should be used after a thorough clean- 
sing of the premises. For wounds a 
1-1,000 solution of corrosive sublimate 
also is the most effective disinfectant 
and a 1-500 solution should be used 
for disinfecting when a spore-form- 
ing germ, like that of anthrax, is pres- 



22 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, SHELBY COUNTY 



ent. Permanganate of potash is a 
useful mild disinfectant (antiseptic 
and deodorizer) in a 1-5,000 to a 1-50 
solution. The weaker solution is used 
lukewarm for vaginal injection pur- 
poses, while the 2 per cent solution is 
useful for injection into cavities from 
which come bad-smelling discharges 
and for swabbing sores (cankers) of 
the mouth. As a wound lotion it is 
usual to employ a 2 to 5 per cent 
solution of carbolic acid, or lysol, or 
coal tar disinfectant. Carbolic acid 
is also much used as an internal disin- 
fectant in contagious abortion. Two 
drams of the acid is well diluted with 
water and mixed in soft feed for each 
pregnant cow every other night 
throughout pregnancy. Peroxide of 
hydrogen one part and clean water 
two or three parts is a popular dis- 
infectant for cleansing foul wounds. 
Scour Medicines. 

The farm medicine chest would not 
be completely stocked without some 
remedies for diarrhoea or scours. A 
mixture of one part of salol and two 
parts of bismuth (first prescibed years 
ago by the writer) has become a 
standard remedy among farmers. The 
average dose is one teaspoonful given 
two or three times a day and washed 
down with milk or water. The dose 
may be doubled in bad cases and for 
larger calves and foals. Prepared 
chalk, powdered alum, sulphur, pow- 
dered catechu, rhubarb and ginger 
root are also much used for diarrhoea. 
Administering Medicines. 

Small doses of liquid medicine, such 
as the average two-ounce dose of a 
fever medicine or tonic solution, are 
best given by means of a half-ounce 
hard rubber syringe. Expert veteri- 
narians sometimes give such medicines 
or bad-tasting drugs in gelatine cap- 
sules, or in form of a "ball." Worm, 
condition and tonic powders are 
mixed in damp grain feed. A large 
dose of liquid medicine is' termed a 
"drench" and is given from a strong, 
long-necked bottle. A few inches of 
rubber hose may be fitted on the neck 
of such a bottle. 

*To drench a horse, back him into a 
Stall, place a running noose of soft, 
small cotton rope or "clothes line" 
upon the upper incisor teeth, under 
the upper lip, and draw the noose 
tight, with the knot of the rope to 



the front Throw the loose end of 
the rope across an overhead beam, 
raise the horse's head, hold it there 
by means of the rope and pour the 
medicine into the mouth a little at a 
time until all is swallowed. Do not 
squeeze the throat of the horse when 
giving medicine and never pour the 
medicine into the nostril. If the horse 
will not swallow, pour a teaspoonful 
of cold water into a nostril and swal- 
lowing will instantly occur. 

To drench a cow, place her in a 
stanchion or tie her in a stall. Walk 
up on her right side (milking side). 
Pass the left hand across her face and 
into her mouth. Hold her head in a 
straight line forward and slightly ele- 
vated, not turned to one side. Pour 
the medicine very slowly into the 
right side of the mouth. Let the 
head down instantly if the medicine 
causes the cow (or horse) to cough. 
Fluid given too fast passes into the 
paunch and is practically wasted. 
Administered slowly, it largely goes 
to the third and fourth stomachs and 
absorption takes place in the latter. 

Sheep have to be very carefully 
drenched from a bottle to avoid chok- 
ing. Swine take medicine through a 
hole cut in the toe of an old shoe 
thrust into the mouth or from a short, 
strong rubber hose fitted in the neck 
of a strong bottle. Dogs take medi- 
cine in capsules inserted in meat or 
from a bottle or spoon emptied into 
a pouch formed of the lip and cheek. 

Avoid "doping" animals unneces- 
sarily. Medicine should only be given 
when the animal is sick, should be 
the right medicine, and is best pre- 
scribed by an expert. 



VALUE OF LABOR 



The United States Department of 
Agriculture found in 1855 that it re- 
quired four hours and 34 minutes of 
human labor to produce a bushel of 
corn. At the Minnesota experiment 
station it has been found recently that 
45 minutes of human labor is about 
the average time required for the same 
work. In other words, human labor is 
worth six times as much as it was 60 
years ago, due to the use of better 
machinery, better varieties of corn 
and better soil management.

SOME COMMON UNSOUNDNESSES 

By Dr. A. S. Alexander, in Prairie Farmer 



TAKE nothing for granted when 
buying a horse. One should 
make sure about doubtful things. 
If the eye cannot decide the mat- 
ter the hand may be employed to 
corroborate or disprove; but the eye 
should be the main dependence 
and the hand used only as a last 
resort. An Irishman does not like 
to buy a pig "in a poke." He 
wants to see and examine the "rint 
payer" and may even make the animal 
squeal to be sure that he is getting 
his money's worth. In just the same 
way one must make the most careful 
examination of every part of a horse, 
"size up" the entire combination of 
points and make sure that there is 
lack of vice, soundness of eyes, wind 
and limb, and perfect fitness for the 
special kind of work the animal will 
have to do. 

A famous veterinary teacher once 
called upon his senior students to ex- 
amine a lame horse and state in writ- 
ing what they thought was the cause 
of. lameness. The horse had a splint, 



one sidebone and a small ringbone 
affecting the lame leg. To one or 
other of these three unsoundnesses 
each student in turn attributed the 
lameness. But one learns best by 
making mistakes and this truth was 
soon "rubbed in" by the teacher. 
Having collected the reports he told 
the smith who was standing by, to 
remove the shoe from the lame foot. 
Then a majority of the students no- 
ticed for the first time that the sole 
of the foot was covered with a thick 
leather pad.. When the leather came 
off pus spurted from a nail prick 
wound which had been purposely hid- 
den. Lameness was due to the nail 
prick, not to splint, ringbone or side- 
bone, and the laugh was on the 
"boys." Never again, would one of 
them be similarly caught and so a 
never - to - be - forgotten lesson was 
learned. Every intending purchaser 
should learn this lesson, too, and be 
a "doubting Thomas" until his hands 
have felt where the eyes could not 
definitely decide a mooted point. "

Seek to deal with men of known 
integrity in business. If not expert, 
and the horse to be bought is a dear 
one, it will be good policy to employ 
a veterinarian to make a critical ex- 
amination. Better visit the stable 
when not expected and see the horse 
vi the stall. There some things can 
be learned that will not be seen when 
the horse is warmed up. You should 
be able to enter and leave the stall 
on the left side^of the horse, without 
being received with a bite or expelled 
with a kick. Note, too, if the horse 
digs a hole in the floor by pawing, or 
chews his manger and hay rack, which 
may indicate cribbing and wind suck- 
ing, or weaves from side to side, or 
pulls back on the halter. Make him 
"stand over" and note if he jerks up a 
hind leg, or hops over. The hopping 
may indicate spavin lameness, which 
quickly disappears when the horse is 
warmed up. 

The jerking up of a hind leg may be 
accompanied by quivering of muscles 
and tail and such a horse is a "shiv- 
erer" or "crampy" and afflicted with 
incurable St. Vitus' dance. The symp- 
toms of the latter disease become 
more apparent as the horse backs out 
of the stall, but quickly subside with 
slight exercise. If the animal has 
"string halt" the jerking up of the 
hind legs is continued as long as the 
horse is in motion, he does not warn? 
out of it. When a horse is brought 
put for inspection "on a run" or "dead 
jump" it is impossible to detect spavin 
lameness or chorea and even string 
halt may not be noticed. This will be 
more certainly the case if the horse 
is turned loose in deep snow, or 
plowed land, or in a straw bedded pad- 
dock. This commonly is done. Some- 
times an old plug that has scarcely 
animation enough to get out of its 
own way will kick up, strut and trot, 
proud as a peacock, when suddenly 
the halter shank, previously cut part 
way through, breaks and the old pil- 
grim imagines he has broken loose by 
his own great strength. This trick is 
often tried. Never allow the dealer 
to keep the horse "in the air." 

After making an examination in the 
stall watch the horse for a while as 
he stands at ease on a level floor. 
Maybe he cannot stand at ease. If a 
foot hurts, soon that foot will be 
thrust forward; if two hurt each will 



be advanced turn about; if four hurt 
the horse will rest each foot in turn. 
And do not forget to walk around the 
horse that every part may meet the 
eye. Often one side is a pretty pic- 
ture, the other marred. See both 
sides, for often the animal is turned 
toward the wall if an eye is out, a big 
bare spot present or some unsound- 
ness there that had best be kept hid- 
den. A "watch" or "wall" eye can 
see, but it is unsightly. The tour of 
inspection around the horse discloses 
all such blemishes. 

Remember about not buying a pig 
in a poke, so remove the blanket from 
all fancy harness and see that the 
halter has no springs and trusses to 
press down upon the nostrils to pre- 
vent high blowing and "roaring." 
Many a man has neglected to remove 
a horse's hood before buying and af- 
terward has discovered that it hid a 
cropped, lopped, or split ear, fistula 
of the base of the ear, a "poll evil" 
or some unsightly blemish. 

Don't get too close to the horse 
when making the preliminary exam- 
ination. Ex-Governor Hoard, of Wis- 
consin, once said that in farm business 
matters a man may hold a cent piece 
so close to his eye that it keeps him 
from seeing a big silver dollar a little 
further off. So if one rushes up and 
grabs a foot, before viewing what the 
French term the tout ensemble ihe 
assemblage of all points he misses 
the comprehensive estimate of the 
horse as a whole and that is of most 
importance. When one has looked 
the horse over from a little distance 
and from all points of view and has 
seen how the animal stands and be- 
haves it will be time enough to scru- 
tinize each component part of his an- 
atomy. First we shall see him move 
away and back, at a walk, then at a 
trot, and finally we shall gallop him. 
Be there when he stops and so decide 
as to the soundness of his "wind." 
It is not enough to test the "wind" 
by standing the horse close to a wall 
and suddenly threatening to strike 
him with a whip. The sudden fright 
may cause the animal to grunt loudly,* 
but this does not necessarily prove 
that such a "bull" is unsound in wind. 

Many sound horses grunt when so 
threatened, or even when one goes to 
mount. In the latter instances it is a 
nervous "expression" and* nothing

Spavin 



serious. When watching the horse at 
rest one should note that he does 
not heave at the flanks, cough or pass 
gas from the rectum. These are the 
symptoms of "heaves"; but the 
"heavey" horse may be "shut" or 
"doped" with drugs so that tempo- 
rarily the symptoms do not show. 
Usually they will quickly appear if 
the horse is given all the hay and 
water he wants and then is galloped. 
Roaring sometimes is temporarily re- 
lieved by plugging the nostrils with 
a sponge or squeezed half lemon. 
Discharge is also prevented by this 
means. It is best to locate these at 
once than have them sneezed into 
tke feed box when the horse is yours. 
At both walk and trot the horse 
should go straight, level and true, 
each joint perfectly fixed, the soles of 
the feet well turned up, as he goes 
away, and no "padding," "winging," 
in or out, "forging," stumbling or toe 
dragging noticeable. Lameness 

should be absent. If the horse passes 
muster when in motion and his style, 
action and conformation are suitable, 
he next may be critically examined 
as he stands at rest. He should stand 
square and firm on each foot. The 
profile of the front and back of each 
leg should show no abnormal bends, 
curves, puffs, swellings, or lumps. If 
any one of these things is seen its 
nature will have to be carefully deter- 
mined.* The eyes should be sound and 
of the same color. The pupils should 



dilate in the dark and contract when 
the horse is brought into the light. 
Angular, wrinkled eyebrows and 
sunken eyes denote previous attacks 
of "moon blindness" (periodic oph- 
thalmia). "Smoky" or "opaque," or 
"pearl grey," or "curdy" appearance 
of the cornea (anterior chamber of the 
eye) denote more serious stages of the 
disease or blindness from cataract or 
glaucoma. A brilliant sparkling 
prominent eye (glassy eye") may be 
stone blind from paralysis of the ret- 
ina and optic nerve. The ears should 
neither be absolutely unused, nor ab- 
normally active. The former may in- 
dicate deafness; the latter, impaired 
vision, nervousness or vice. 

See that a thread from ear to ear 
under the forelock, does not keep lop 
ears upright and that a leaden ball, 
suspended from a thread in the ear, is 
not preventing undue motion. The 
horse should let one handle his ears, 
his poll (back of ears), the top of the 
neck, where the color will bear, and 
the withers, where fistulous openings 
or their scars so commonly are found. 
Fighting against such handling indi- 
cates a reason for fear and the rea- 
son usually is that a twitch has been 
used on the ear and the horse may be 
hard to shoe, have sore neck from 
the collar, poll evil or fistulous with- 
ers, or have suffered a previous opera- 
tion for such disease. 

Handle each part upon which har- 
ness will have to bear and see that 



26 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, SHELBY COUNTY 



it is sound and free from sores, tu- 
mors or abcesses. The nostrils should 
be large, under command of the will, 
rosy pink inside, not slit and free 
from f abnormal discharge. See that 
the breath does not smell foul and 
that the teeth are sound and the jaws 
not under or over "short." Examine 
the back. It should be strong, broad, 
straight, free from sores and well 
muscled. Pinching the loins is un- 
necessary. A ticklish horse will squat 
when so handled but the test does not 
detect weak kidneys. Note that the 
ribs are well sprung, the underline 
fairly straight, the abdomen capacious, 
the flank not tucked up and the 
coupling short and strong. See. that 
no wounds or abscesses are present 
high up on the right flank, as the re- 
sult of tapping for flatulant colic. 
With the left hand on the horse's loin, 
as a support, stoop and examine 
sheath, or udder as the case may be, 
and other parts high up in the groins. 

> Examine the tail, which should be 
strong, not artificial ("joined on") and 
not rubbed bare from itchiness. Lift 
it and see that the black skin below 
is free from tumors, the anus clean, 
well pursed up, free- from scurvy sub- 
stances or streaks of mucous; or, in 
the mare, that the space between rec- 
tum and vulva is intact and that no 
discharge comes from the latter. 
Looking from the rear, compare one 
hip with the other. If one is "knocked 
down" that side will be steep. At each 
side of the tail is the tuberosity of the 
ischium. ^Like the point of the hip 
(ilium) this often is fractured, leaving 
one side depressed. All parts of the 
shoulders, neck, barrel and hindquar- 
ters should be smoothly and deeply 
covered with sound muscles. 

^ Now _ examine each hoof. Cracks, 
rings, ridges and meatiness should be 
absent, frogs and bars prominent, 
soles slightly concave, heels wide, cor- 
onets (hoof heads) open and strong, 
hoofs waxy, smooth and ample in size. 
Object to a horse that has .steep nar- 
row heels with a deep cleft in frog, 
also one that has chronic corns, 
chronic thrush, "dropped" (convex) 
soles, or hoof walls showing toe or 
quarter cracks. 

Make sure that the elbows are free 
from hard or soft tumors or abcesses 
called "shoe boils" and that the knees 



are free from hairless scars and are 
straight, wide;, deep and strong. All 
joints should be large, clean, bony 
and strong. This is of the greatest 
importance. The joints cannot be too 
large so long as the size is made up of 
large, clean, sound bones, ligaments 
and tendons. Beware of puffs, meati- 
ness and bony growths which give 
the wrong sort of size. The knees 
should have perfect flexion, no matter 
what work the horse has to do. They 
should not be bent forward (buck 
knees) nor bent backward (calf 
knees). Splints close to the knee are 
serious; but low down, on an adult 
horse, they are practically harmless, 
unless struck by a shoe. Splints, ring- 
bones and spavins are bony excres- 
censes. Splints come on the cannon 
bones, along the course of the splint 
bones (small metacarpals and metatar- 
sals). 

Ringbones are found high, medium 
or low, on the long pastern, and often 
involve the short pasterns. Bone 
spavins are found at the lower, front, 
inner aspect of the hock joints. Bog 
spavins are soft bursal distensions of 
the hock joints, above and in front 
of the seat of bone spavins. Thoro- 
pins are bursal distensions seen at the 
sides of the hocks, towards the rear 
and when pressed on one side bulge 
out on the opposite side. "Wind 
galls" are similar puffs in connection 
with the tendons at and just above 
the fetlock joints. A curb appears as 
a hard enlargement giving a rounded 
bulging contour to the profile of the 
back of the hock joint, looking from 
the side. 

Splints are most easily seen by 
standing in front of the horse, then 
examining further by feeling the parts 
involved, first with the foot standing 
down firm, then with it off the ground. 
Ringbones are best seen from a side 
view of the profile of the long pas- 
tern. The hand may have to help in 
their detection. To examine for spav- 
ins look between the forelegs at the 
inner, lower profile of each hock. The 
hard "knob" on one hock probably 
will prove to be a bone spavin. A 
small spavin is called a "jack" and it 
is apt to prove serious and grow to 
be a large spavin. Spavin may also 
be detected from a quartering view 
of the hock, or fro;n the rear.

CARE OP HORSES 

From Prairie Farmer. 

Here are a few rules prepared by 
the Boston Work Horse Relief Asso- 
ciation that may as well be observed 
on the farm as in the city: 

Load lightly, and drive slowly. 

Stop in the shade if possible. 

Water your horse as often as pos- 
sible. So long as a horse is working, 
water in small quantities will not hurt 
him. But let him drink only a few 
swallows if he is going to stand still. 
Do not fail to water him at night after 
he has eaten his hay. 

When he comes in after work, 
sponge off the harness marks and 
sweat, his eyes, his nose, and mouth, 
and the dock. Wash his feet, but not 
his legs. 

If the thermometer is 75 degrees or 
higher, wipe him all over with a damp 
sponge. Use vinegar water if possible. 
Do not turn the hose on him. 

Saturday night, give a bran mash, 
lukewarm; and add a tablespoonful of 
saltpeter. 

If the horse is overcome by heat, 
get him into the shade, remove har- 
ness and bridle, wash out his mouth, 
sponge him all over, shower his legs, 
and give him two ounces of aromatic 
spirits of ammonia, or two ounces of 
sweet spirits of nitre, in a pint of 
water; or give him a pint of coffee, 
warm. Cool his head at once, using 
cold water, or, if necessary, chopped 
ice, wrapped in a cloth. 

If the horse is off his feed, try him 
with two quarts of oats mixed with 
bran and a little water, and add a little 
salt or sugar. Or give him oatmeal 
gruel or barley water to drink. 

Watch your horse. If he stops 
sweating suddenly, or if he breathes 
short and quick, or if his ears droop, 
or if he stands with his legs braced 
sideways, he is in danger of a heat or 
sun stroke and needs attention at 
once. 

If it is so hot that the horse sweats 
in the stable at night, tie him outside, 
with bedding under him. Unless he 
cools off during the night, he cannot 
well stand the next day's heat. 



SOLDERING 

By P. O. Barnfield, in Prairie Farmer. 

Soldering is so simple and is use- 
ful in so many different ways that one 
naturally supposes every farmer would 
have a soldering outfit if he thought 
he could use it to advantage. On 
this supposition I beg to offer some 
suggestions which have come from 
actual experience. 

No special ability or experience is 
required. It is, of course, true that 
deftness and accurancy naturally fol- 
low experience, but good results will 
as surely follow if one will keep the 
following points in mind. 

The soldering outfit consists of a 
soldering copper (good size, not un- 
der two pounds), a bar of half and 
half solder, a piece of salammoniac, 
and a small bottle of muriatic acid 
with a small brush for applying. 

Heat, the soldering copper not red 
hot but about the same as a flat iron 
would be heated for ironing clothes, 
wipe off the dust on a rag, take a 
file and rub the surface at the point 
till copper is clean and bright, then 
press the hot copper down the sal- 
ammoniac till it makes a depression. 
Place the end of the bar of solder 
in this depression and with the cop- 
per melt off two or three drops of 
solder. Remove the bar and rub the 
copper hard into the depression, but 
not so as to push the solder out over 
the edge. Keep this up till the cop- 
per is well coated with a smooth 
bright coat resembling tin. You are 
now ready for business. Remove 
every particle of dirt from the parts 
intended to be soldered. Usually it 
is necessary to scrape the surface with 
a knife or file if greasy or very dirty, 
and then with a small brush apply 
the muriatic acid. Rub the surface 
with the brush to remove particles. 
Now rub surface to be soldered with 
the hot copper, using solder as de- 
sired. If the solder stands in globules 
and does not spread over the surface 
it is because there is some foreign 
matter between the solder and the sur- 
face and the cleaning process should 
be repeated with more care. 

Solder will stick to almost any kind 
of metal if there is no foreign matter 
on the surface. Since the parts of a 



21 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, SHELBY COUNTY 



copper under the tinned surface are 

easily melted, it should never be 

'eated to a red heat. < 

T n mending granitewear or copper, a 

>per harness rivet or a tinner's 

t may be inserted after cleaning 

surface around the hole. Get the 



boys started to making measures and 
buckets, funnels and flue caps. vAsk 
that these be made a specific size and 
see how quickly they will grapple with 
problems in mensuration. It also 
might keep them out of town some 
evenings. 



HOW TO JUDGE TRACTOR HORSEPOWER 



From Prairie Farmer. 



early everyone knows the defini- 
tion of a "horsepower" as given in 
school arithmetics, etc., namely, "the 
power required to raise a weight of 
33,000 pounds to a height of 1 foot rn 
one minute." As this is a definite, 
fixed unit of power, one would natur- 
ally suppose that the horsepower rat- 
ings of two tractors would be a 
logical and reliable means of compar- 
ing their ability to perform work; 
that a tractor rated at 30 horsepower 
on the drawbar would be twice as 
powerful and capable of doing twice 
as much work as one rated at 15 
horsepower on the drawbar, for ex- 
ample. This supposition would be 
correct but for the fact that there has 
been no definite standard used in 
ascertaining the horsepower devel- 
oped by tractors and the percentage 
of the power actually developed 
which should be taken for their 
catalogue rating. The various manu- 
facturers have followed their own 
judgment in the matter, and as a re- 
sult several methods of rating are 
being used, with a consequent lack of 
uniformity. 

It is because of this fact that at the 
present time it is quite common to 
find two tractors doing practically the 
same amount of work and clearly of 
about equal power although with 
widely different catalog ratings. It 
is obvious that either the outfit with a 
low catalog rating has been under- 
rated by its manufacturer or that the 
second machine has been overrated, 
or perhaps both have occurred. It 
would seem advisable, therefore, that 
steps be taken to bring about a stand- 
ard rule for ascertaining and desig- 
nating the horsepower of tractors. It 
is not so important, perhaps, what 
particular method is followed so long 
as the same method is used by all 
manufacturers, thus avoiding; having 
machines of the same pow.er given 
such varying ratings. 



A movement is already on foot in 
the department to bring about the 
adoption of some standard. Until one 
has been decided upon and adopted, 
it is suggested that farmers, in com- 
paring different makes of tractors, 
should give particular attention to the 
number of plows pulled and the 
amount of work done by the various 
machines, and that less attention be 
paid to the catalog ratings., 

When outfits can be seen working 
side by side, as at the tractor demon- 
strations which are being held 
throughout the country, the amount 
of work done is of more value in 
comparing the relative power than are 
the manufacturers' ratings, unless ex- 
actly the same method has been used 
in each case. 

It is obvious that two tractors 
each pulling the same number of 
plows of equal size, at equal depth, 
in the same soil, and each moving at 
the same speed are exerting practi- 
cally equal amounts of power on the 
drawbar. In such case, if each is pull- 
ing its normal load, they should have 
the same drawbar rating. It is not 
at all uncommon, however, as previ- 
ously stated, to find tractors under 
such conditions with widely different 
ratings. By using as a standard the 
amount of work done by different 
tractors therefore a very fair com- 
parison of the drawbar horsepower 
can be obtained. With this known, 
a good idea of the power of the motor 
can be gained. If in the case just 
mentioned, one of the machines was 
considerably heavier than the other, 
it is apparent that it would require 
more power to move its own weight 
and that it would therefore not be 
capable of exerting on the drawbar 
as large a percentage of the motor's 
total power as would the other ma- 
chine, assuming that the loss of 
power through gears, etc., in the 
transmission was the same. It natur- 
ally follows that the motor on the 



PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



heaviest machine would develop more 
power on the belt than would the one 
on the lighter outfit. 
s The terms "brake" or "belt" horse- 
power mean exactly the same thing 
and are used to denote the amount of 
power which the engine will develop 
and transmit to a belt for stationary 
work, such as threshing. This amount 
of power may be computed by differ- 
ent formulas or may be ascertained 
definitely by actual measurement with 
a proper apparatus. This accqunts for 
some of the lack of uniformity in rat- 
ings. Some companies carefully 
measure the amount of power devel- 
oped by each engine before it leaves 
the factory and then give their engine 
a catalogue rating equivalent to its 
maximum power output; others will 
deduct a certain amount from the 
maximum horsepower as ascertained 
and rate their engine at various per- 
centages of this figure in order to be 
on the safe side, and to underrate 
their outfit rather than overrate it, 
while some companies do not measure 
the amount of power the engine actu- 
ally develops, but compute it. With 
the diameter of cylinder, the length 
of stroke, and the number of revolu- 
tions per minute known, the horse- 
power which will be developed by an 
engine can be computed with a fair 
degree of accuracy, although there are 
a number of formulas used, several of 
which give somewhat different results. 

In comparing the power of two 
tractors the speed at which they are 
moving must always be considered. 
A tractor pulling two plows at 2 miles 
an hour will do the same amount of 
work as one pulling one plow and 
traveling at 4 miles an hour, other 
conditions being equal, and the horse- 
power developed at the drawbar is the 
same, because the element of time 
enters into the determination of 
horsepower. The slower any given 
tractor is geared to move the greater 
will be the load which it can pull at 
the drawbar, as it pulls it less rapidly. 
The amount of work done and the 
total amount of power exerted will 
remain practically the same. 

It is obvious that in the case men- 
tioned the tractor pulling one plow 
and running twice as fast as the one 
pulling two plows must move its own 
weight over the ground twice as many 
times as will the other tractor. If the 



weight of the two tractors is the same, 
it will be seen that twice as much 
power has been expended in moving 
the weight of the high-speed tractor 
as has been used by the one with low 
speed. 

A great many farmers find it diffi- 
cult to understand why a tractor of, 
say, 10 horsepower at the drawbar will 
not pull as heavy a load as will 10 
horses. This is not because a me- 
chanical horsepower is less than the 
amount of power developed by a 
horse, but is because of the fact that 
a horse has an enormous overload 
capacity that is, he is capable of ex- 
erting for a short time a great deal 
stronger pull than he should normally 
maintain hour after hour. 

A tractor, however, has very little 
overload capacity when pulling its 
normal load. Thus, if a tractor with 
a drawbar rating of 10 horsepower 
pulling its normal load of plows under 
average conditions should strike a 
particularly hard spot where the draft 
was doubled for a few minutes it 
would stall; while 10 horses under 
similar conditions could readily in- 
crease their pull sufficiently to meet 
the increased draft. 

From this it will be seen that in 
cases where the draft will vary (and 
this occurs in practically all kinds of 
farm work because of grades, soil 
variation, etc.) the load which a 
tractor will handle satisfactorily is 
that which it can pull up the steepest 
grade or through the toughest soil in 
the field. This load may be only half 
of what it can pull under more favor- 
able conditions in the same field. It 
will also be apparent that the working 
load of a tractor under ordinary farm 
conditions is considerably less than 
the normal load for its drawbar equiv- 
alent in horses, that is, a tractor of 10 
horsepower on the drawbar will not 
pull, except under constantly favor- 
able conditions, the load which a 10- 
horse team would normally pull. The 
difference might be said to be entirely 
in the overload capacity of these twr- 
prime movers. With a tractor its 
maximum power is practically its 
normal power because it is capable of 
pulling this load continuously, but 
cannot carry anything in excess of 
this. On the other hand, the horse's 
normal load is much less than what 
he can do in an emergency.

LIGHTNING RODS PROTECT 
BUILDINGS 

From Prairie Farmer. 

"It is generally agreed now that 
lightning rods, properly installed, do 
afford a considerable measure of pro- 
tection to farm buildings, a fact which 
is indicated by the more favorable in- 
surance rates which many insurance 
companies offer in insuring farm build- 
ings that are properly rodded," says 
K. J. T. Ekblaw of the department of 
farm mechanics, University of Illinois. 

"One insurance company of Michi- 
gan states that the small sum of $32 
has been paid in four years for dam- 
age done to rodded buildings by light- 
ning, although a total risk of fifty-five 
million dollars was taken. Another 
company taking risks amounting to 
fifty-nine million dollars, in the same 
period of time on both rodded and un- 
rodded buildings, paid for damage 
done by lightning more than a thou- 
sand times as much as the other com- 
pany paid on wired buildings. A 
prominent fire insurance adjuster 
states that in his experience, for every 
dollar's worth of damage done to 
properly rodded buildings, there was 
$1,168 damage done to unrodded ones. 
In other words, there was indicated 
on efficiency of 99.9 per cent in favor 
of wired ones. 

"Some of the points to be kept in 
mind in installing a system of light- 
ning rod protection are as follows: 

"(1) Either copper or galvanized 
iron may be used for lightning con- 
ductors. The cable form is satisfac- 
tory and the weight of the copper 
should be at least three ounces per 
foot, while that of the galvanized iron 
should be twice as much. 
"(2) All parts of the wiring should 
be connected up into one system. No 
blind ends or stubs should be left un- 
grounded. Joints should -be made 
very securely and the contact made 
as perfect as possible by soldering and 
brazing. 

"(3) The conductor should be 
firmly fastened to the building in- 
stead of being insulated from it, as 
ts sometimes done. The purpose of 
the conductor is to take the light- 
ning charge away from the building; 
insslation ^events this. 



"(4) The conductors should fol- 
low ridges and sharp corners in the 
buildings. No sharp turns in the con- 
ductor itself should be made. 

"(5) Aerial terminals should be lo- 
cated at the ends of ridges and on the 
ridges at intervals not to exceed 20 
feet. Any terminal point on the roof 
should have an aerial terminal of its 
own. The aerial terminals should be 
at least two feet high, firmly braced 
in upright position, securely fastened 
to the main cable, and provided with 
a galvanized or nickeled wrought iron 
point. 

"(6) Good earth connections are 
absolutely necessary. Commonly ac- 
cepted forms consist of a metal plate 
buried below the level of permanent 
moisture, into the soil to a depth of 
eight or ten feet, securely fastened to 
the conductor itself. 

"(7) All metal masses, such as 
metal roofs, radiators, hay fork tracks, 
etc., should be connected to the main 
system. 

"(8) Use good materials, install 
them properly, and no fear of light- 
ning need be felt." 



WHEN THE BELT SLIPS 

From. Prairie Farmer. 

The slipping of belts is a great an- 
noyance, but it is not always remedied 
by tightening the belt. Ordinarily, if 
the proper-sized belts and pulleys are 
used and properly put in, there should 
be little or no slipping at all. Often 
the slipping of a belt is due to the 
overload carried by it. There is 
economy in using wider belts than is 
the usual practice. Many a three-inch 
belt is made to do the work of a four- 
inch belt, much to the annoyance of 
the operator and the ruin of the belt. 

However, when an immediate rem- 
edy is needed, a small quantity of 
powdered whiting, sprinkled on the 
inside of the belt, is very good and is 
the least harmful of any similar appli- 
cation. 

The use of beeswax, rubbed on the 
inside of the belt or on the pulley is 
a very good remedy in cases of emer- 
gency. 

Many people use powdered rosin on 
a slipping belt but this is bad practice 
because it soon dries the leather and 
causes it to crack.

Oakbrook Farm Durocs 



Established 1905 



Durocs excel in quality, size, prolificacy and ability to make profitable use of a 
great variety of feeds. The care used in developing the Oakbrook Duroc Herd is con- 
vincingly set forth by this list of sires used.

PRODUCTIVE SUPERIOR STOCK AND MODERATE PRICES 

SHORTHORNS 

The popularity of Shorthorns throughout the middle west indicates that no other 
breed equals them as profit-makers, under our conditions, prominent among which are 
heavy crops and scarcity of help. Perhaps we could better spare all other breeds than 
this one premier race of cattle. To a superlative degree they combine high quality 
with large size beef-making tendency with milk-producing ability in a short utility and 
beauty with a pleasing disposition. We are using the good Scotch Bull Merry Archer 
630331. Come, write or phone.

MANUFACTURER'S 
CHARACTER 

The manufacturer of a well 
known brand has more at stake 
in maintaining his quality than 
if he is manufacturing the same 
product to be sold under private 
brand. In the former case, he 
must please a consumer whom he 
never sees; in the latter case he 
transfers the responsibility to a 
retail merchant who deals face 
to face with the consumer and 
who can plead his case in person, 
in case of dissatisfaction.

ing by insisting on getting from your dealer only 




All Goods Advertised in Prairie Farmer are TRIPLE-G Goods. 
All Goods Advertised in This Directory are TRIPLE-G Goods. 

When the local dealer says in his advertisement: 

"We Sell and Recommend the Following 

TRIPLE-Guarantee Goods" 

as in any advertisement in Prairie Farmer or in this 
Directory, it gives you this TRIPLE-Guarantee 

1st That the manufacturer of the goods stands back of them. 

2nd That the Prairie Farmer stands back of them.

for them and 
refuse any other kind? 



WHEN a reader of Prairie Farmer goes into a store 
to buy, he is assured of getting full value for his 
money if he insists on buying only well known advertised 
goods and refusing to buy any unknown brand substitute. 

\\7 pi V P Because advertised goods are well known 
goods that are backed up with the guar- 
antee of PRAIRIE FARMER and the manufacturer. If 
the goods are not as represented in the advertising, or do 
not give full satisfaction, this TRIPLE GUARANTEE 
means that you have only to make your complaint and 
that any just claim will be fairly considered and your 
money paid back in case the goods are not as represented. 
This is PRAIRIE FARMER'S FAIR PLAY POLICY 
with its readers. We back up every advertisement in 
PRAIRIE FARMER and guarantee honest treatment. 
No humbugs, swindles or cheap substitute goods (that are 
made to sell and get the customer's money on false pre- 
tenses) are advertised in PRAIRIE FARMER. Buy the 
goods advertised in PRAIRIE FARMER and in this 
Directory and you are taking no chances. You are guar- 
anteed satisfaction because all goods we advertise are

IT PAYS TO BUY AT AN

Of course, it is quite possible that other stores say this very 
thing about themselves. 

So it will do no harm to emphasize the wide chasm that 
separates the policy of this store from all others in this city and 
the entire vicinity. 

Our goods are bought on a tremendous scale. Instead of 
dozens thousands. Instead of pounds tons. 

And when 600 R. C. U. merchants get together to buy 
something, no one single store can enter into competition. 
Have you tested this R. C. U. store for its value giving?

Why Your Choice Should Be a Victrola j 




No matter what machine you buy, you are going to use Victrola 
Records, or miss what is best in the World of Music. This being the case, 
isn't it the plainest kind of common sense to choose the machine that will 
play most perfectly the records you are going to use. There is only one 
machine that will play Victrola Records perfectly "The Victrola." 

It's easy to own a Victrola. Let us explain an easy payment plan.

ERADICATING HEDGE 

By Frank L Mann in Prairie Farmer. 

You can not kill a hedge fence 
entirely by burning or cutting off the 
tops during the winter or spring. 
There is so much stored material in 
the roots to be used in making 
growth that the roots or stumps will 
start buds and grow the coming sea- 
son. If you could cut it or burn it 
during late summer or early fall 
during August in this latitude after 
the growth has been made and before 
the wood has begun to harden, most 
of the plants will be killed, if not all. 

To get rid of a hedge, however, it 
is not a bad plan to burn it or cut 
it off close to the ground during the 
winter when there is more time to 
work at it, and depend on cutting off 
the new growth that comes once or 
twice during the next summer. One 
close cutting should be made in 
August, just before the wood com- 
mences to harden, so that this young 
growth is not permitted to store any 
food in its roots for another year. If 
all tops have been burned or cut close 



to the ground the new growth next 
summer may be kept down without 
much work by cutting off with a 
mower or heavy scythe. A close cut- 
ting throughout one summer and fall 
will usually kill all the hedge, though 
sometimes an occasional plant may 
show another year. If not allowed 
to mature any wood during the fall 
the hedge or any plant is easily killed. 
If your hedge is where you can per- 
mit it to grow it would pay to let 
it grow for posts. It will pay more 
per acre than your corn land. 

KILLING RATS. 

From Prairie Farmer. 
Saturate cloths large enough to fill 
the entrances of the holes with car- 
bon-disulphide, perhaps a large tea- 
spoonful to each cloth. Poke the 
cloth down as far as possible, then 
fill in with dirt. This gas is very 
heavy and when it evaporates it settles 
into the bottom of the holes, killing 
old and young. This gas is also very 
satisfactory in killing gophers and 
woodchucks. 



When you go into a store to buy shoes, say to the clerk, "I want a 

pair of . shoes". Don't say, "I want a 

pair of shoes" . If you name a brand of shoe* you know will give you 
satisfaction, you not only say you want shoes, but you know about 
what you want. A clerk will always give closer attention to a customer 
who knows what he wants. It is human nature. The clerk will be 
more likely to give you satisfaction, even if he does not have the make 
of shoes you ask for, because he will know better what to show you, if 
you are willing to consider another make.

MR BELTING 



THE Shelby County Farm Bureau 
was organized last winter and 
spring by state organizers from 
the Agricultural Extension Service of 
the State University. Owing to bad 
weather the roads were almost im- 
passable and the 
difficulties of or- 
ganization were 
greatly increased. 
However, those 
difficulties are be- 
ing overcome and 
the Farm Bureau 
is now a well es- 
tablished institu- 
tion in this coun- 
ty. The County 
Agri cultural 
Agent assumed his duties in this 
county June 1, 1918. 

The Farm Bureau is an organized 
agricultural democracy, by means of 
which farmers and their families ex- 
press themselves concerning all mat- 
ters relating to the advancement of 
agricultural, home and community 
life. The Bureau is recognized by 
law as a public agency for doing ex- 
tension work. It establishes the same 
relationship between the County Farm 
Bureau and the United States De- 
partment of Agriculture as exists be- 
tween the State Agricultural College 
and the United States Department of 
Agriculture. The Farm Bureau co- 
operates with the United States and 
the State Departments of Agriculture 
in all extension in the county whether 
that work be farm crops, soils, farm 
animals or the problems of the home 
and community life. Instead of being 
merely an aid to county-agent work, 
the Bureau has become a local insti- 
tution, educational in character, for 
administering and directing the ex- 
tension work in agriculture and home 
economics. 

The people in an organized capacity 
have thus become full partners in all 
that is undertaken in the county for 
the improvement of agriculture and 
the advancement of home life. 
Through the Farm Bureau, they have 
assumed a responsibility which prop- 
erly belongs to them, i. e., that of di- 
rectly participating in determining 
what shall be undertaken, in helping 
develop the plans, and in personally 



assisting in carrying out the 'Agricul- 
tural Improvement Program. The 
realization of this ideal has been made 
much easier by the impelling necessity 
of the war. 

Benefits of the Farm Bureau 

1. The members are brought closer 
together in a business and social way. 

2. Fosters and develops co-opera- 
tion. 

3. Gives the farmer the best of sci- 
entific agriculture. 

4. Helps in the solution of farm 
problems. 

5. Better marketing of farm prod- 
ucts. 

6. Enables members to buy feeds 
and fertilizers at wholesale prices. 

7. Investigates and protects farm- 
ers from fakers and fraudulent con- 
cerns. 

8. Develops the most profitable 
and permanent system of agriculture. 

9. Through organized efforts the 
total agricultural production will be 
increased.
