A new Gtore in 
Rockford 

NOT NEW IN YEARS, but new in spirit; not 
trying to see how much we can get, but how 
much value we can give ; carrying out the spirit of 
real service; giving satisfaction in goods and prices. 

Order by mail or telephone 

A SPECIAL MAIL SALES SERVICE attends 
to such orders; you can order by mail or tele- 
phone as easily as in person. Quick deliveries by 
parcel post ; and if the goods are not what you want 
when they come, send them back at our expense. 

We have nearly everything a complete dry 
goods store sells and some things many 
of them don't have. If you order what we 
haven't got in stock, we'll get it for you. 

WE HAVE A SERVICE BUREAU on the first floor ; you 
may check bags or parcels there ; get information about 
trains, cars or any other matters you wish to bring to us. We 
can look after buying railroad or theater tickets, make tele- 
phone calls for you ; in short, a bureau for being of service to 
you in any way you ask. A comfortable rest room has been 
installed where you may sit and read or rest or wait for 
friends. Consider yourself our guest, whether you buy any- 
thing or not; make Ashton's a meeting place; the store is 
conveniently located for such appointments. Bring the chil- 
dren, they are not in the way. We have a play space for 
them where they'll be happy while you are shopping.

IX this directory we have endeavored to g^ive Stephenson 
county 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 
valuable reference book. 

The task of calling on every farmer in a county and 
collecting- the information for such a directory is a tre- 
mendous one. We have received splendid co-operation 
from the farmers and business men of the county, with- 
out 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 ac- 
counts 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. 

W^e 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 
directory will be a real service to Stephenson county farmers 
and in line with Prairie Farmer's policy of service to the 
farmers of Illinois. We hope that the increased circula- 
tion of Prairie Farmer in Stephenson county which has re- 
sulted will help in the movement for better farming, bet- 
ter farm living, and more prosperity for the county, and 
that our many new friends will become permanent mem- 
bers of the big Pr.\irie Farmer family.

PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



The Stephenson County Better Farming 
Association 

By L. M. Swanzy, President 



THE realization that in order to 
secure the best results in the 
business of farming it is neces- 
sary to apply modern methods of 
farm practice in order to secure the 
results which present day conditions 
demand has been rapidly growing in 
Stephenson county. Farm lands sell- 
ing at the price which they are today 
and combined with the fact that there 
is little or no virgin farm land left 
in this country to be tilled, makes it 
essential that larger and better crops 
be produced on the present farms if 
adequate returns on the investment 
are to be made. Contrary to the 
opinion which has been expressed in 
some places an increase in the crops 
does not necessarily mean a reduc- 
tion in the price of farm products, as 
the rapidly increasing population of 
this country will demand a great in- 
crease in the amount of food products 
produced in the years to come. In 
order to promote modern and scien- 
tific methods of agriculture, better 
and more profitable crops and im- 
proved soil conditions and a greater 
and better production of live stock, 
the Stephenson County Farm Im- 
provement Association has been or- 
ganized to carry on the work along 
the following lines: 

The constitution and by-laws 
adopted at the farmers' meeting De- 
cember 6, 1914, provide that there 
shall be a president, vice-president, 
secretary and treasurer and three 
other directors in whose hands the 
management of the affairs of the As- 
sociation shall be placed. The by- 
laws further provide that a delegate 
from each township shall be appointed 
the first year by the directors and 
after that this delegate shall be elec- 
ted by the members of the association 
in each township. These delegates 
will be members of the advisory coun- 
cil which will confer with the board 
of directors from time to time re- 
garding the management of the As- 
sociation and they shall be privileged 
,t,o , gppf)int cornmitteemen in their 
;vai,iotus' , hown^hips to .assist tlicm in 



carrying on the work of the Asso- 
ciation. 

The principal object of the Asso- 
ciation is to promote the various in- 
terests of the farmer in every way 
possible. The vital problems of in- 
creasing crop yields and repairing the 
fertility of worn out soils are of first 
importance to the farmer and those 
interested in -the prosperity of the 
county. These and many other impor- 
tant problems such as the proper dis- 
tribution of farm products in an ef- 
ficient manner; the purchasing of sup- 
plies for the farmer to the best ad- 
vantage; the advancement of agricul- 
tural education in the schools of the 
country, will all come within the scope 
of this Association which offers an 
opportunity for the farmers of the 
county to work together for their own 
interests as nothing else can. 

One of the chief objects for which 
the Association has been organized is 
to secure a County Agricultural Ad- 
visor for Stephenson county. Over 
1,200 counties in the United States 
now employ county agents, and the 
most progressive counties in Illinois 
which have prosperous farm improve- 
ment associations are employing such 
men to assist them in carrying on the 
work. The duties of a county agent 
are numerous. It is his business to 
consult with the farmers of the county 
concerning matters of soil fertility, 
crop improvement, seed and soil test- 
ing, and to aid the farmers in every 
way possible to solve these problems. 
Such a man would act as purchasing 
agent for the Association, keeping 
posted as to where the best supplies 
of seeds, fertilizers and other neces- 
sary supplies could be obtained at the 
best prices. A competent county 
agent would also assist the farmers 
to keep in touch with markets for 
their products, improve methods of 
distribution and aid them in many 
ways to develop better methods of 
doing business. 

A man capable of handling these 
problems intelligently must have 
ability and the necessary qualifica- 






FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



tions. In order to secure such a 
man, one who will meet the require- 
ments of the United States Govern- 
ment's Department of Agriculture and 
the State University, money is es- 
sential and the financing of an asso- 
ciation of this kind is one of the 
most difficult problems it has to face. 

In order to raise the funds neces- 
sary to carry on the work of the As- 
sociation it has been thought best to 
charge a membership fee of $5 per 
year to all members. If enough farm- 
ers join the Association the amount 
raised from membership fees should 
be sufficient to secure a first-class 
county agent and pay the expenses 
of the organization. There are other 
sources of revenue, however, which 
should be made use of if possible. If 
the farmers will raise a part of the 
necessary funds the United States 
Department of Agriculture will pay 
$1,200 per year toward the support of 
the Association The County Board 
of Supervisors has the privilege un- 
der the s'tate laws, of contributing a 
maximum of $5,000 per year toward 
this work. The county boards in 
other counties in Illinois are con- 
tributing liberally toward the support 
of their farmers' organizations and 
if the Stephenson County Farm Im- 
provement Association shows that it 
means business there is no reason why 
the county should not make a liberal 
appropriation for this necessary work. 
It is understood that dues to the As- 
sociation need not be paid until a 
county agent is assured. Any member 
may take out more than one member- 
ship if he so desires. 

The benefits to be derived by any 
farmer from the Association will be 
apparent to any one who gives careful 
consideration to the matter. There 
is no doubt but what the money in- 
vested in memberships will be re- 
paid to the farmers many times over. 
The work which will be done to es- 
tablish scientific methods of farming 
in this county and the betterment of 
crop and soil conditions, mean greater 
crops per acre and additional pros- 
perity to the farmers. 

In the matter of purchasing the best 
quality of seeds, fertilizers and other 
necessary items in large quantities, 
the saving to any farmer will more 
than pay for his membership. Im- 
proved methods of distributing farm 
products of all kinds and the securing 
of better markets for them will be a 



great advantage and a saving to the 
farmer. 

The co-operation which a county 
agent can give the county schools, es- 
pecially in the winter months, is aii- 
other valuable feature of the work. 
The teaching of practical agriculture 
is necessary and valuable if the com- 
ing generations are to be properly 
fitted to take up practical farm work. 
A county agent can do much in the 
schools, in educating the students in 
practical farm problems and create an 
interest in farm life which will have 
a tendency to keep the young people 
on our farms.

interest was sought and their ac- 
tivities allied for a larger progressive 
moveinent are the county superin- 
tendent of schools, the principal and 
professor of agriculture in the Free- 
port High School, the officers of the 
farmers' institute, the rural pastors 
and progressive district school teach- 
ers who are natural community leaders.

FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



LIVESTOCK FARMERS' 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 S9, 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 
be kept on a separate part of a shelf 
partitioned ofif for the purpose and 
away from simple, harmless drugs. 
Ointments, wjth 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 better 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 bloated 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 



PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



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 
on. 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 lotion 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 
be 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, H 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)

FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



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 of? 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 ofif 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 o.unce of lard. This is 
used on swellings, sore necks and 
shoulders, puffs of all sorts, tumors. 



forminpr 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 
iron. 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 give 
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. P'or 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-

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.

CONTROLLING CONTAGIOUS 
ABORTION. 

From Prairie Farmer. 

Contagious abortion among cattle, 
the annual loss from which was esti- 
mated a few years ago to be $20,000,- 
000, is spreading so rapidly through 
the country that from an economic 
standpoint it threatens to become one 
of the most important of animal dis- 
eases. Formerly confined almost ex- 
clusively to dairy cows and farm beef 
herds, it has now found its way to the 
range, where losses in such instances 
have run as high as one-half of the 
calf crop. Here the conditions are 
such as to make its control difficult. 
For this reason it is important that 
stockmen should realize the serious- 
ness of the disease and the necessity 
for the adoption of measures for pre- 
venting its spread. 

At the present time sanitary and hy- 
gienic measures are the only means of 
control which have demonstrated their 
effectiveness. The drugs and proprie- 
tary preparations which have been ad- 
vocated for the cure or prevention of 
the disease are regarded by the spe- 
cialists of the department as ineffect- 
ive, and their use cannot be recom- 
mended. On the other hand, it is 
certain that proper disinfection of 
premises, and in particular of breed- 
ing animals, will do much to minimize 
losses. 

Recently preparations known as 
"bacterins," consisting of a suspension 
of the killed organisms of abortion, 
and serum obtained from infected 
animals, have come into use and can 
be obtained from several firms who 
manufacture biologic products. These 
products are still in the experimental 
stage, and much time must elapse be- 
fore their true value can be deter- 
mined. Notwithstanding this fact, 
this line of treatment offers the most 
scientific and reasonable method of 
combating the disease, and our only 
hope of eventually controlling abor- 
tion lies in the future development of 
an effective vaccine or serum. 

The organism which causes the dis- 
ease may be conveyed from cow to 
cow by means of the bull or may 
enter the system with contaminated 
food. All aborting animals and all 



showing a discharge should, there- 
fore, be isolated from the healthy 
members of the herd in order to elimi- 
nate, so far as possible, infective ma- 
terial. Infected stables should be 
thoroughly cleansed with a standard 
disinfectant, applied with a force or 
spray pump, the disinfection of the 
contaminated stall being repeated 
after each abortion. Manure and con- 
taminated litter should be promptly 
removed and plowed under to pre- 
vent access to it by other cattle. 
Detailed instructions for the disinfec- 
tion of both the cow and the bull are 
contained in Circular 216 of the Bu- 
reau of Animal Industry. 

Many herd owners fail to observe 
.these precautions because they do not 
realize that the infection is present in 
their herds. The disease is insidious; 
it usually requires a long time to de- 
velop, does not reveal itself by warn- 
ing symptoms, and does not, indeed, 
appear to affect in any way the genera] 
health of the animal. In consequence, 
it is quite likely that the infection will 
have spread throughout the herd be- 
fore the owner is aware of any danger. 
There are, it is true, certain tests 
which can be employed to ascertain 
the presence of the infection, but from 
a, practical standpoint these possess 
some drawbacks. All infected animals 
do not abort. Furthermore, after two 
or three abortions, cows appear to ac- 
quire a natural immunity, and are 
thereafter quite capable of normal re- 
production, although they continue to 
react to the tests. A positive reac- 
tion, therefore, does not necessarily 
mean that a healthy calf will not be 
born. 

On the other hand, the fact that 
several animals have aborted within a 
short period is in itself suggestive evi- 
dence of the presence of the disease. 
Furthermore, it sometimes happens 
that in cows which have acquired im- 
munity, although apparently healthy 
themselves, the infection persists and 
they are able to transmit the disease 
to others. For this reason, when the 
infection has once established itself in 
a herd, the whole herd should be con- 
sidered infected, and all abortions, re- 
tained afterbirths and all tendency to 
sterility should be regarded as mani- 
festations of the disease. 

This does not mean, however, that 
all infected animals are to be disposed 



11 



PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



of. As a matter of fact, in herds in 
which the disease has gained a foot- 
hold, a cow that has aborted once or 
twice is in some ways more valuable 
than one that has not. It is safe to 
say that in practically no case do more 
than thr.ee abortions take place, and 
in the majority of instances there are 
not more than two. Cows which are 
not made sterile will in all probability 
resume normal reproduction. On the 
other hand, if they are removed to 
make way for fresh animals, there is a 
strong possibility that the newcomers 
already are, or soon will be, infected, 
and are actually further from immun- 
ity than the old ones. The elimination 
of infected animals is therefore not to 
be recommended as a means of con- 
trolling the disease, unless their value 
is not great enough to warrant the 
expense of treatment. 

A train of complications often ac- 
companies abortion, and of these 
retained afterbirths is perhaps the 
commonest. This, if neglected or im- 
properly treated, may result in ab- 
sorption of poisonous products, sep- 
ticemia, ^nd death. Also sterility rnay 
follow, ruining the cow for everything 
except slaughter. Calf scours, too, 
seems more destructive in herds af- 
fected with abortion. 

These complications, together with 
the great loss in calves and the less- 
ened milk production, make the wide 
and ever extending distribution of the 
disease a matter of tremendous im- 
portance, both to the dairy and beef 
industries. 



CORN STALK DISEASE. 

"By Dr. D. Mcintosh, University of 
Illinois, in Prairie Farmer. 

This disease is caused by horses and 
cattle eating diseased corn stalks and 
especially diseased corn. In the chem- 
ical analysis of the diseased stalks 
and corn, nothing has been found so 
far which would cause poisoning if 
eaten by horses or cattle. 

Some ears of corn are affected with 
smut, some ^ith fungus, and some 
with "worm dust," as it is called. 
From experiments that have been 
made none of these substances eaten 
separately will cause poisoning. When 
the diseased stalks and corn are eaten 
in sufficient quantities they undergo a 



process of fermentation in the stom- 
ach, eliminating a poisonous gas, and 
if enough of this gas should be formed 
and become absorbed into the system 
it acts on the nerves, causing paralysis 
of the hind legs, and affects the nerves 
of respiration, causing death. 

This peculiar disease is found in 
some parts of the country and not in 
others and all the corn fields in the 
same locality are not affected. The 
reason of this is not known. 

The symptoms of this disease are 
weakness, staggering, and partial or 
complete loss of the use of the hind 
legs, and as the disease advances the 
animal becomes unable to stand, it 
falls and struggles or has convulsions, 
and soon dies. 

The only preventive is not to feed 
the diseased corn to horses or cattle 
and to keep them out of the corn stalk 
fields until late in the winter. Dis- 
eased food of any kind is unsafe and 
should never be fed to horses. 

In the early stage of the disease the 
best treatment is to give 2 ounces aro- 
matic spirits of ammonia and 2 ounces 
sweet spirits of nitre at a dose in a 
pint of cold water and repeat every 
half hour until five doses have been 
given. This stimulant seems to coun- 
teract the action of the poison and 
should be tried. 



NEW REMEDY FOR WORMS IN 
HOGS. 

From Prairie Farmer. 

Santonin, which was formerly 
widely used as a remedy for worms 
in hogs, is practically unobtainable at 
the present time owing to foreign 
trade conditions. The following treat- 
ment has been found to be very effect- 
ive in experiments by the department 
of agriculture: Withhold all feed and 
water for 24 hours, then give each pig 
a tablespoonful of castor oil to which 
has been added oil of American worm- 
weed as follows: 

Small pigs, 2 to 3 months old, 35 
drops. 

Pigs weighing SO to 100 pounds, 50- 
100 drops. 

Larger pigs, teaspoonful. 

Each pig should be dosed separately 
if the best results are to be obtained. 
In case separate dosing is impractic- 
able, on account of lack of assistance 



12 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



or other circumstances, the pigs may 
be sorted out into lots of half a dozen 
each, according to size. Thoroughly 
mix the castor oil and wormweed oil 
in proper quantities with a small quan- 
tity of milk or mash, and give it to 
the pigs, watching them carefully to 
see that none gets more than his 
share. Attempting to dose too many 
pigs at the same time in this manner 
will result unsatisfactorily, as some 
will get more and others less than 
they should. This treatment should 
be repeated in a week or 10 days to 
secure 100 per cent efficiency. 



HOW BIG A SILO SHALL I 
BUILD? 

Allow 40 pounds of silage per day 
for each mature cow and half this 
amount for each head of young stock. 

Figure on feeding the silage for 
about 200 days each year. 



From the accompanying table find 
the dimensions of the structure that 
will hold the total quantity needed. 
The figures are based on silos that 
have been filled with well matured 
corn, which has been allowed to set- 
tle 48 hours, and then refilled. 

The deeper the silo in relation to 
its diameter and the tighter and better 
it is built, the smaller the allowance 
that must be made for spoiled ma- 
terial. In any case it is wise to build 
a bigger silo than you absolutely need 
to allow for shrinkage, an unexpect- 
edly long season and a possible in- 
crease in the size of your herd. 

The cost of filling will vary with 
the degree of system employed, the 
distance of hauling involved, the 
quantity of labor, etc. From record? 
kept on nineteen Illinois farms, it 
was found to vary from 40 to 67 cents 
per ton, with an average of 56 cents.

HOW TO BUILD A PIT SILO 

By Albert Miller, in Prairie Farmer 



The first thing to do in building a 
silo of this type is to get an 8-inch 
pesthole auger, with additional gas 
pipe to extend it to the required 
length; then auger down at the place 
where the silo is intended to be made^ 
and find out beforehand the nature of 
the soil, also how far down it is to the 
first water vein. 

Then, after having the necessary 
materials on hand, such as brick, ce- 
ment and sand, make a radius hole 
and mark off the circumference of 
whatever the diameter of the silo shall 
be. Then start digging, being very 
careful to get the first three or four 
feet exactly plumb and true to the re- 
quired circle. If the soil is of such a 
nature that it will stand well without 
any danger of caving, then it is best 
to dig it all out as deep as necessary 
or not any deeper than within a foot 



or so from the water vein. After 
excavating the whole silo a scaffold 
can be arranged very easily by simply 
standing four 2 by 6-inch scantling 
inside, long enough so they reach 
within four or five feet from the top, 
where some footboards can be nailed 
across at several places and plank laid 
down to work from. The brick should 
continue well down below frost line, 
but not any higher than about five 
feet above ground. A flat cover with 
building paper over it is all that is 
needed for a roof, and it should be 
made so it can easily be removed at 
the time of filling the silo. 

For hoisting the dirt out in digging 
the silo the best way is to use a so- 
called hay derrick, with a swinging 
arm, such as is used for stacking hay. 
This arm will swing to almost any 
part of the silo, and after the team

14 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 




rreeport Putolic Iiibrary, Freeport, Xlliuois 



hoists the dirt the man that dumps 
the dirt can easily swing it away from 
the silo. A 50-gallon kerosene barrel 
makes an elegant pail for hoisting the 
dirt. The handle must be made from 
about %-inch rod iron, and it must be 
hooked a little below center on the 
barrel, which makes it very easy to 
dump the full barrel of dirt; no mat- 
ter how heavy the load, if it balances 
it turns over as easy as a barrel 
churn. Only one barrel is needed. 
Thirty barrels an hour can easily be 
sent out of the silo, even in the hard- 
est clay, with two men digging 10 feet 
per day on a 12-foot diameter silo. 

This type of silo can also be made 
where there is nothing^ but pure 
quartz sand, where the digging part 
is a snap; but in such a case the brick 
wall must be continued clear down to 
the bottom. As the sand caves in 
easily, it requires a little more care, 
but there is no need of any curbing 
by going at it in the right way. 

The cost of building a silo of this 
kind, especially where it can be cen- 
tered right to the dirt wall, is remark- 
ably low as compared with all types 
above ground. A silo 12 feet in diam- 



eter and 20 'feet deep costs for the 
material and mason work about $35. 
It should take no more than two days 
digging it out; that is, to have two 
men in the silo digging; one to dump 
the dirt and one to handle the team. 
One mason should do the cement 
work and bricklaying in two more 
days; thus it takes only $35 cash 
money for material and mason work, 
and a total of four days' work to 
complete a silo that will take care of 
five acres of good corn; thus we see 
that it would cost more to fix a stor- 
ing place above ground, even if we 
would build it out of the very poorest 
and cheapest lumber, or any other 
material on the market. 

This, however, is not the largest 
gain, even though it is well worth 
taking into consideration. The great- 
est gain and satisfaction comes in 
when the perfectly pure, unfrozen 
silage comes up with a flavor similar 
to a can of delicious fruit from a cel- 
lar. Why have a cellar? Why not 
have vegetables and fruit upstairs or 
above ground? Old Mother Earth is 
a great preserver. Jack Frost is the 
greatest destroyer.

FINDING WEIGHT OF SILAGE 

From Prairie Farmer. 
In computing the amount of silage 
in a silo it is first necessary to find 
the number of cubic feet of silage. 
This is done by multiplying the dia- 
meter of the silo by itself by .7854, 
and by the depth of the silage. Thus 
since the silo is 16 by 40 we have: 
16 by 16 by .7854 by 40 equals 8042.- 
496 cubic feet. 

Next we multiply the number of 
cubic feet by the mean weight of a 
cubic foot of the silage. From a 
table giving fthe mean weight of sil- 
age per cubic foot, which was pub- 
lished in Prairie Farmer Oct. 23, 1915, 
we find that the mean weight of a 
cubic foot of silage in a full 40 foot 
silo is 45.5 pounds. This would give 
a total of 365,933,568 pounds, or ap- 
proximately 183 tons of silage. 

In case your silo is not full we are 
reprinting the table, from which you 
can figure the weight of silage for 
various depths: 

Mean Weight of Silage 
Depth of Silage Per Cubic Foot 

1 18.7 

10 26.1 

15 29.8

30 39.0 

35 43.0 

40 45.5 

45 47.0 

50 48.5 

The Illinois Experiment Station 
found that it cost $3.30 per ton to 
produce silage. This was of corn 
that yielded considerable more than 
20 bushels per acre. At this price, 
however, it would probably give you 
but a fair profit on your silage. 



SEALING THE SILO 

From Prairie Farmer. 

Practice in sealing silos ranges 
from leaving the top in the shape it 
is at the close of filling to covering 
with straw on which, after it is thor- 
oughly wetted, are sown oats, their 
germination forming a dense mass 
that shuts out the air. If no special 
steps to seal the silo are taken the 
farmer may expect to find from a 
foot to a foot and a half of silage 
at the top which is unfit to feed. 



Siome farmers wet the top of the silage 
and sow oats directly upon it. On 
many farms cornstalks from which 
the ears have been removed are avail- 
able for silo sealing. This is a very 
convenient material for the purpose, 
as the stalks may be run through the 
silage cutter following the ear corn. 
The cut cornstalks should be packed 
thoroughly and soaked with water. 



SILAGE FOR DAIRY COWS 

While silage is an excellent feed 
for dairy stock, it should be combined 
with some other leguminous feed, 
such as clover, cow peas, or alfalfa, 
owing to its insufficient productive 
quality. 

The leguminous material will tend 
to correct the deficiencies of the sil- 
age in dry matter, protein, and min- 
eral constituents. A ration of silage 
and, say, alfalfa hay alone is satisfac- 
tory, however, only for cows which 
are dry or giving only a small amount 
of milk and for heifers and bulls. 
Cows in full milk require some con- 
centrated feed in addition to hay and 
silage, as they can not consume 
enough of these feeds to keep up a 
large flow of milk and maintain body 
weight. 

The amount of silage to feed a cow 
will depend upon the capacity of the 
animal to consume feed. She should 
be fed as much as she will clean up 
without waste when consumed along 
with her hay and grain. Raise or 
lower the amount until the proper 
quantity is ascertained. Generally 
speaking, a good cow should be fed 
just short of the limit of her appe- 
tite. If she refuses any of her feed 
it should be reduced at once. The 
small breeds will eat 25 or 30 pounds 
per day; the large breeds 40 or more; 
and the medium-sized ones amounts 
varying between. 

Ironclad directions for feeding 
cows can not be given. In general, 
however, they should be supplied 
A^ith all the roughage they will clean 
up with grain in proportion to butter- 
fat produced. The hay will ordinarily 
range between five and 12 pounds 
per cow per day when fed in connec- 
tion with silage. For Holsteins one 
pound of concentrates for each four 
pounds of milk produced will prove

about right. For Jerseys one pound 
for each three pounds of milk or less 
will come nearer meeting the require- 
ments. The grain for other breeds 
will vary between these two accor-d- 
ing to the quality of milk produced. 
A good rule is to feed seven times 
as much grain as there is butterfat 
produced. 

The following rations will be found

Corn, chop 4 

Wheat bran 2 

Linseed oil meal or cottonseed meal. 1 

In case the hay used is not of this 
kind some of the corn chop may be 
replaced by linseed or cottonseed 
meal. In many instances brewers' 
dried grains or crushed oats may be 
profitable substituted for bran, and 
oftentimes gluten products can be 
used to advantage in place of bran 
or oil meals. 

The time to feed silage is directlj 
after milking or at least several hours 
before milking. If fed immediately 
before milking the silage odors may 
pass through the cow's body into 
the milk. Besides, the milk may re- 
ceive some taints directly from the 
stable air. On the other hand, ii 
feeding is done subsequent to milk- 
ing, the volatile silage odors will have 
been thrown off before the next milk- 
ing hour. Silage is usually fed twice 
a day.

SOME FACTS ABOUT STOCK 
FOOD 

Water is contained in all foods and 
feeding stufifs. The amount varies 
from 8 to 15 pounds per 100 pounds 
of such dry materials as hay, straw, 
or grain, to 80 pounds in silage and 
90 pounds in some roots. 

Dry matter is the portion remain- 
ing after removing or excluding the 
water. 

Ash is what is left when the coni- 
bustible part of a feeding stuflE is 
burned away. It consists chiefly of 
lime, magnesia, potash, soda, iron, 
chlorin, and and carbonic, siilphuric, 
and phosporic acids, and is used 
largely in making bones. Part of 
the ash constituents of the food is 
stored up in the animal's body; the 
rest is voided in the urine and ma- 
nure. 

Protein (nitrogenous matter) is 
the name of a group of substances 
containing nitrogen. Protein furn- 
ishes the materials for the lean flesh, 
blood, skin, muscles, tendons, nerves, 
hair, horns, wool, casein of milk, al- 
bumen of eggs, etc., and is one of 



the most important constituents of 
feeding stuffs. 

Gluten is the name given to . one 
of the most important of the nitro- 
genous substances classed together 
under the general term "protein." 
"Wheat gum," obtained by carefully 
chewing wheat, is a familiar example. 
It is the gluten of flour that gives 
consistency to the dough. 

Carbohydrates. — The nitrogen-free 
extract and fibre are ofen classed to- 
gether under the name of carbohy- 
drates. The carbohydrates form the 
largest part of all vegetable foods. 
They are either stored up as fat or 
burned in the body to produce heat 
and energy. The most common and 
important carbohydrates are sugar 
and starch. 

Fibre, sometimes called crude cel- 
lulose, is the framework of plants, 
and is, as a rule, the most indigestible 
contituent of feeding stuflfs. The 
coarse fodders, such as hay and 
straw, contain a much larger propor- 
tion of fibre than the grains, oil 
cakes, etc. 

Nitrogen-free extract includes 
starch, sugar, gums, and the like, and 
forms an important part of all feed- 
ing stufifs, but especially of most 
grains. 

Fat, or the materials dissolved 
from a feeding stuff by ether, is a 
substance of mixed character, and 
may include, besides real fats, wax, 
the green coloring matter of plants, 
etc. The fat of food is either stored 
up in the body as fat or burned to 
furnish heat and energy.

BINDER TROUBLES AND ADJUSTMENTS 

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



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 sim-ple 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: ger.eral 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 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 method 



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 
rnay be caused by missing slats of 
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 of 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, beings too 
tight; paint or varnish not being cut 
out of the bearings; or rollers binding. 
Apply lubricating oil to the bearings 



19 



PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



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 ofif 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 align- 
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 Greiin 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 sometim.es 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, flufTy 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 on 
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 Too 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 plc^c^ and force the dog 
back out of the way of the revolving 
drivers ol the packer shc^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 
do.ar. 

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 



21 



PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



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 is the cause. 

Discharge Arms 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 
Into place to throw the dog out of 
J^ngagement with the binder head 
drivers. Hence the relation between 
the stop arm and the dog is a set 
relation maintained through beveled 
gears. If for any reason these gears 
«re separated and not put back in the 
ftriginal definite relation to each 
mher, the head is said to be out of 
time; This means that the stop arm 
'Sifould not be in place at the proper 
moment to throw the dog out of en- 
gagement and a second revolution of 
the discharge arm immediately fol- 
lows the first. The timing principle 
holds true in all makes of heads and 
k obtained in a way more or less 
common in all types, though the 
inechanism will vary to some degree 
1ft its shape and position. If the dis- 
charge arms revolve continually the 
head may be out of time or the stop 
nrm face may be so badly worn that 
It allows the dog to slip by when the 
fr«vo come together. If the machine is 
out of time, i. e., if the stop arm is 
not 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 
filip by one another, file the faces to 
their original form. If this allows 
too much play or looseness in the 
dog (which can be tested by taking 
hold of the discharge arms to deter- 
mine whether they are tight or loose) 
<» new dog or perhaps a new stop 
i»rm must be purchased. Some ma- 
*>hines permit lengthening of the stop 
hrm. 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 
tangled 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 
if 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 dififer 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 



23 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



KNOTTEH 
BILLS 




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 
ends. 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 bills 
but with the free end crushed and

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. ^ 

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 enouoh 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 parts.

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 hill 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 miy 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 plato 
Per cent of blank hill.. 9.34 .00 .00 
Per cent of hills contain- 
ing 1 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 50 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 



25 



PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



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 ^ our shoes or furrow 
openers are dropping 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 all 
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 




Tig. 1. fSongue Adjnstment to Secure Accurate ChecHug

FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 






A Spread Cbeck Fork May Cause Struiging' 



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 afifect 
the check. The adjustment shown in 
Fig. 1 is also a means of maintaining 
a good check when dififerent 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 varying 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 end 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 
from the first cause will probably be 



27 



PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



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 ^;ogether 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 relation 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. 
If 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.

HOW TO MEND THE HAY ROPE 

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



To repair a broken or badly weak- 
ened strand, complete the break as 
shown in Fig. 1 and unlay each end 
of the strand back about 2 feet as 



shown at A and B in Fig. 2. Take 
a strand about five feet long from a 
piece of rope exactly the same size 
as the hay rope, and lay it into the

place of the broken strand as shown 
in Figs. 3 and 4, great caution being 
taken to give the new strand its orig- 
inal twist and to draw it sufficiently- 
tight, so that the old and new strands 
will have the same tension when the 
load is applied. We now have ,tne 
ends, as shown in Fig. 5. With each 
pair of ends, tie a simple knot, as 
shown in the upper rope in Fig. 6, 
caution being taken to avoid tying 
the knot shown in the lower half of 
the same picture. Pull the knots well 
down into the lay of the rope. Now 
weave each end in, always working 
from right to left in weaving, or at 
right angles to the twist or spiral. 
Work each end under the two 



strands, laying next to the knot as 
with ends B and D in Fig. 7. Work 
the ends in a second time and then 
cut them ofif, leaving about a quarter 
of an inch extending out of the rope, 
as shown in Fig. 8. This completes 
the repairing of a broken strand. The 
rope will be stronger than its pre- 
vious dangerous condition, and if the 
repair is properly made, it will be 
hard to detect and will last as long 
as the rope is serviceable. 

If the hay rope is broken or breaks 
during the hay season, mend it with 
a long splice which can be quickly 
made with a little practice. The short 
splice should not be used in hay 
ropes. Proceed with the long splice 
as follows: 



30 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



About 2J^ feet from the ends of 
the rope at the break, tie a piece of 
twine securely around the rope. Un- 
lay all three strands in each end back 
to the twines. Now bring the ends 
of the rope together securely so that 
each strand from one end lies alone 
between two strands of the other 
end, as shown in Fig. 9. Each strand 
from each end must now be paired 
with 'a corresponding strand from the 
other end, the strands of each pair 
standing in the same relation to each 
other as the strands in each other 
pair; for instance, in Fig. 9 strands 
3 and 5 are paired and the other re- 
maining strands must now be paired 
in exactly the same way. The proc- 
ess now consists of unlaying one 



strand of each two pairs and laying 
into its place its mate from the other 
rope. In other words, strand ~ 5 in 
Fig. 9 is unlaid and strand 3 is laid 
into its place toward the reader's 
right. Then strand 2 from the left 
rope is unlaid and its mate, strand 6, 
is laid into its place toward our left. 
The third pair of strands remains in 
the center. Cut off each strand so 
that about five inches reinains and 
we will then have the partially com- 
pleted splice, as shown in Fig. 10. 
With each pair of ends, tie a simple 
knot exactly as shown in the upper 
half of Fig. 6 and weave the ends in 
just as we did when repairing a 
broken strand above. In making the 
splice great care must be taken to 
keep the original twist in all strands

laid in, and in pulling each just tight 
enough so that it will carry its one- 
third of the load. A properly made 
long splice is hard to detect except 
where the ends protrude. It does not 
increase the diameter of the rope, 
and is the only splice which should 
be used where the rope 'runs over 
pulleys. The lengths of long splices 
for ordinary farm ropes of dififerent 
sizes should be as follows: 

% inch rope — 4 feet 

% inch rope — 5 feet 

1 Inch rope — 6 feet 

This means that each end to be 
spliced will be unlaid back only one- 
half these distances. The same dis- 
tances can be safely used for repair- 
ing broken strands where new strands 
are laid in. 

If you wish to "take the twist out" 
of a new rope before puting it into 
the hay rigging, tie one end of the 



rope to a light wagon and drag the 
rope about a meadow for twenty min- 
utes or so, drawing it sharply around 
a tree or post if possible. This treat- 
ment will lessen objectionable twist- 
ing and snarling, so troublesome with 
new ropes. Do not drag the rope 
out on a dirt road, as is often done. 
It is hardly necessary to caution the 
wise driver to turn his fork team al- 
ternately to the right and to the left 
to avoid twisting the hay rope. 



H. G. Brunning of Mason county, 
111., who has had considerable experi- 
ence with alfalfa on sandy lands, says 
that when he seeds alfalfa again he 
will not use a nurse crop, as on light, 
sandy soils the young alfalfa plants 
need all the plant food they can get 
and should not be robbed by the nurse 
crop.

CARE OF 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 js 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 ofif 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 tablespoonfuj 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 coflfee, 
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 ofif 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. 



33 



PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



copper under the tinned surface are 
easily .melted, it should never be 
heated to a red heat. 

In mending granitewear or copper, a 
copper harness rivet or a tinner's 
rivet may be inserted after cleaning 
the surface around the hole. Get the 



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



HOW TO JUDGE TRACTOR HORSEPOWER 



From Prairie Farmer. 



Nearly 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 m 
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 m 
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 dififerent 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 aTI 
manufacturers, thus avoiding having 
machines of the same power 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 dififerent 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 
cornparing 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 dififerent 
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 



34 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



heaviest machine would develop more 
power on the belt than would the one 
on the lighter outfit. 

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 dififer- 
ent formulas or may be ascertained 
definitely by actual measurement with 
a proper apparatus. This accounts 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 greate-r 
will be the load which it can pull at 
the (^rawbar, 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 nonnal 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 tW" 
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.

KILLING STUMPS. 

By Carl Livingston, University of 
Wisconsin, in Prairie Farmer. 

Covering soft maple and elm stumps 
with salt would surely kill the stumps, 
but there is no question but that this 
process would be very much more ex- 
pensive than it would to blow them 
out with dynamite or to pull them 
with a stump puller. 

In regard to pouring coal oil on the 
stumps, if enough is poured on I pre- 
sume it would kill the stumps, but I 
imagine a small quantity would injure 
them very slightly. 

From time to time we have rumors 
of kerosene being applied to stumps 
through holes bored in the top and al- 
lowed to stand for some time. It is 
claimed that these stumps may be 
burned out very easily and completely. 
However, we have never yet run 
across any case of where this process 
of stump removal has been econom- 
ical. 

If anyone is especially anxious to 
kill the stumps quickly, I would ad- 
vise him to go along with a spade and 
mattock and take the dirt away from 
the roots for six iniches below the 
ground line and peel the bark from 
the stump. 



TRACTOR DONT'S 

From Prairie Farmer. 

In order to assist the user in pre- 
venting most of the common gasoline 
engine troubles, the Bull Bulletin in a 
recent issue gives the following 
dont's: 

Don't put gasoline into the tank 
without straining it through a cha- 
mois; there may be water in the gas- 
oline, or some sediment that would 
clog up the carburetor or mixing 
valve. 

Don't handle gasoline by the light 
of a lantern or other open light. If 
you have no electric light where the 
tank is located, never fill it except by 
daylight. 

Don't attempt to run an engine 
without providing sufficient lubrica- 
tion. 

Don't over-oil the engine. Just 
enough in the right place is better 
than a quart. 



Don't use common black oil on 
small bearings. Such oil is not suited 
to the purpose. 

Don't get oil or grease on the wires 
of the battery circuit; it will ruin the 
insulation. 

Don't hold a spark plug wire more 
than %. inch away from the engine 
with the current turned on, when test- 
ing. There is danger of ruining the 
spark coil. 

Don't throw away a spark plug un- 
less it is broken. A spark plug does 
not wear out, and the only attention 
it requires is usually nothing more 
than grinding. 

Don't screw a spark plug on too 
tight. It may "bake" fast. Graphite, 
is available, should be used on the 
threads. 

Don't throw away any batteries in 
winter until you have tried thawing 
them out. Often they are only con- 
gealed or frozen up. 

Don't leave the battery switch 
closed when the engine is not running. 

Don't leave the gasoline turned on 
when the engine is not running. 

Don't attempt to connect more cells 
of battery in a set than recommended 
by the maker of the engine. You may 
overload the spark coil and burn it 
out. 

Don't leave strands of wire sticking 
out around connections. They may 
cause a "ground" in the circuit. 

Don't attempt to use any method to 
warm up the carburetor in cold 
weather that might ignite the gasoline. 
Cloths that have been wrung out of 
hot water are the safest means of 
heating the carburetor if necessary. 

Don't run your engine when over- 
heated. 

Don't drive the engine if it makes 
an unusual noise or squeak; stop at 
once and remedy the defect. 

Don't drive with a slipping clutch; 
study its connection and master the 
methods of adjustment. 

Don't drive if the lubricator is out 
of order. ^ 

Don't make a noise when changing 
gear. 

Don't race the engine. 

Don't measure the depth of gasoline 
with a dirty stick. 

Don't allow a leaky gasoline pipe to 
go unrepaired; a spark or a hot ex- 
haust pipe might cause the gasoline 
to ignite. 



36 



FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



Don't forget to properly lock any 
nuts after making an adjustment, nor 
neglect to replace split pins which you 
may have withdrawn. 

Don't lubricate the gear with too 
thick a grease. 

Don't put too much lubricant in a 
gear-box. 

Don't over-lubricate anywhere. 



THE TRACTIOIVEER'S DREAM. 

By George Fitch. 

The tractor on the farm arose 

Before that dawn at four, 
It drove the cows and washed the 
clothes. 

And finished every chore. 

Then forth It went Into the field. 

Just at the break of day; 
It reaped and threshed the golden yield, 

And hauled it all away. 

It plowed the field that afternoon 
And when the job was through 

It hummed a pleasant little tune 
And churned the butter, too. 

And pumped the water for the stock, 

And ground a crib of corn. 
And hauled the baby 'round the block 

To still its cries forlorn. 

Thus ran the busy hours away 

By many a labor blest; 
And yet, when fell the twilight gray 

The tractor had no rest. 

For while the farmer, peaceful eyed. 
Read by the Tungsten's glow. 

The patient tractor stood outside 
And ran the dynamo. 



RULES FOR PRODUCING HIGH 
QUALITY EGGS. 

From Prairie Farmer. 

Chickens must be healthy, good 
size and not mongrel. 

Plenty of clean nests must be pro- 
vided in chicken houses or places 
where the hens lay. 

Setting hens must be separated from 
the laying flock. 

Broody hens must be broken up im- 
mediately or transferred to place 
where the setting hens are housed. 

Eggs must be gathered daily in cool 
weather and twice daily in very warm 
or extremely cold weather. 

All eggs must be kept in a cool, dry 
and well ventilated place. 

A warm kitchen, damp cellar, or in 
a room where oil, onions or strong, 
odorous vegetables are kept is very 



unsatisfactory, as eggs readily absorb 
odors. 

A dry, cool, clean, well ventilated 
cellar or cave is the best. 

Never wash eggs, as it spoils their 
keeping qualities. 

Use very small, dirty eggs at home 
or market them in regular cases, not 
in the association cartons. 

Eggs o'f questionable quality must 
not be marketed through the associa- 
tion. 

Always keep the eggs as cool as 
possible and away from direct rays of 
sun. 

Market all eggs at least twice a 
week in summer and fall and not 
longer than once a week during' the 
rest of the season. 

After June 1, all mature males must 
be confined and sold and infertile eggs 
produced.

ORGANIZING THRESHING RING 

By Frank I. Mann in Prairie Farmer. 

I do not know of a draft of by-laws 
suitable for a threshing ring, but it 
would be an easy matter to draw up 
such if desired. Most of the threshing 
rings are held together by a "gentle- 
man's agreement," which, as a rule, is 
just as good as a "cut and dried" con- 
stitution and by-laws, and more likely 
to be observed. 

The plan of procedure is to get all 
the parties in the ring present at a 
meeting, and if any are not present let 
them agree to observe the provisions 
agreed upon at the meeting. Elect a 
chairman and secretary. The secre- 
tary is to keep a record of all meas- 
ures acted upon by the meeting, and 
these minutes are in fact the by-laws 
to be observed later. Usually, an ex- 
ecutive com.mittee of about three 
members are chosen, and this execu- 
tive committee has full powers to de- 
cide matters not decided at the gen- 
eral meeting, to contract with engine 
and separator men, either by the cir- 
cuit or threshing and other matters 
not previously agreed upon. 

Usually the general meeting decides 
who is to furnish separator and en- 
gine and the price to be paid under a 
contract with owners of machines. 
The number of acres to be threshed is 
ascertained and the number of men to 
be furnished is distributed among the 
members according to acreage. In an 
average ring each 40-acre field fur- 
nishes one man; 80 acres, two men, 
and 100 acres or more, three men. A 
timekeeper may be agreed upon at the 
general meeting, and the timekeeper 
keeps accurate time the separator is 
running on each job. At the end of 
the threshing season a "clearance" is 
made of the work or men furnished 
during the season, and those who have 
received less help than supplied re- 
ceive the difference, which, of course, 
is paid by those who have given less 
than received. This "clearing" of help 
furnished has a good tendency to keep 
peace in a neighborhood, and is equi- 
table. 

If the ring is a large one, as many 
of the details should be agreed upon 
at the general meeting as possible, so 
as to avoid future misunderstandings. 
The order in which the jobs are 
threshed should be understood, and a 
rotation agreed upon for future years, 



so no set of members will be thrown 
either first or last; the hours for com- 
mencing and stopping work each day 
should be understood; the executive 
committee should have power to de- 
cide if any laborer furnished is ineffi- 
cient. Let the Golden Rule be the 
motto and the minutes be the by- 
laws, and among men there will be 
harmony. 



PREPARING POULTRY FOR 
MARKET. 

From Prairie Farmer. 

Grasp the chicken, when killing, by 
the bony part of the skull. Do not let 
the fingers touch the neck. Make a 
small cut with a small, sharp pointed 
knife on the right side of the roof of 
the chicken's mouth, just where the 
bones of the skull end. Brain for dry 
picking by thrusting the knife through 
the groove which runs along the mid- 
dle of the roof of the mouth until 
it touches the skull midway between 
the eyes. Use a knife which is not 
more than 2 inches long, one-fourth 
inch wide, with a thin, flat handle, a 
sharp point, and a straight cutting 
edge. 

At least 30 per cent of all the poul- 
try coming into the New York market 
is incompletely bled. Much of it is so 
badly bled that it results in a loss of 
from 2 to 5 cents a pound, as com- 
pared with the corresponding poultry 
which is well bled and in good order. 
Aside from the bad appearance of in- 
completely bled chickens, their keep- 
ing properties are very inferior. The 
flesh loses its firmness sooner; its 
flavor is not so good. 

A very large proportion of the un- 
sightly poultry in our markets aside 
from the rubbing and tearing of the 
skins, is caused by an incomplete re- 
moval of the blood. This is evidenced 
by red dots which frequently occur 
where the feathers have been re- 
moved, especially over the thighs and 
wings, or by the small veins, which 
mar the appearance of the neck. Gen- 
erally it is the neck which shows most 
plainly the presence of blood in the 
fowl, or that a wrong method has been 
used in cutting the blood vessels in 
an attempt to empty them. The neck 
is the first part to discolor, becoming 
first red, then bluish red or purple and 
finally green as aging progresses.

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 
is sometimes done. The purpose of 
the conductor is to take the light- 
ning charge away from the building; 
insulation prevents 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 
rnoisture, 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.

PROTECT YOUR HONEST DOLLAR 



To Prairie Farmer Readers — 

D.on't buy cheap, unadvertised goods, but protect yourself when buy- 
ing by insisting on getting from your dealer only — 



^^RAIVT-^ 




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. 

3rd That the merchant handling the goods stands back of them. 



"TRIPLE-Guarantee Goods 

Are the best value for the money. 

Safest to buy. 

And Satisfaction is absolutely insured.

FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



What Are "TRIPLE-G" Goods? 



r.>y>t'^^^^ , 1, 1 

should you ask 




WHY 



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. 

W/ U 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 



TRIPLE-GUARANTEED GOODS

It is to be regretted that a picture of the

far enough along to get a picture. When the 
building is completed it will be one of the

Mr. Citizen:— 

A Dollar is worth less now than for several 
years except when you buy Insurance. 

Your own County has a Life Company 
that has been in successful operation for ten 
years. It is operating in five states and has 
over $8,000,000 of insurance in force. Its 
annual rate for $1 ,000 insurance is as follows: 

Age 20 $11.00 Age 40 $17.80 

25 12.20 45 21.04 

30 13.64 50 25.44 

35 15.40 55 32.00 

Other ages in same proportion. Men and 
women insured. 

Bankers Mutual Life Company 

93 Stephenson Street, Freeport, 111., invites 
you to call at its office at any time or phone 
Number 518. 



P. S. — The Bankers Mutual Accident and Health 
Company is under the same management as this 
Life Company. It has a policy that will fit your needs 
for insurance against loss from accident or sickness.

DURABILITY 

One thing that adds excess value and life to the 
Series 18 FOUR and SIX is the special steels used 
in the manufacture, made to Studebaker's own 
specifications especially for Studebaker cars. 

Another is the scientific heat treatment of vital 
parts, like gears, axles, axle shafts, etc., which makes 
them stronger, longer-wearing, and permits lighter 
weight with increased strength. 

A third is the absolute accuracy of Studebaker 
manufacturing processes, and the resulting perfect 
fit and alignment of all parts, and perfect balance of 
motor parts and the entire car, reducing friction and 
wear to the very lowest point. 

This is why Studebaker Cars "stand up," give 
continuous service month after month, year after 
year, with low up-keep cost. This is why a Stude- 
baker in the end is one of the most economical cars 
in the world to buy. 

Come in and let us give you a demonstration.

NEW YORK LIFE INSURANCE CO. 

furnishes absolute protection (invalid income — old age fund — death 
benefit) at a very low net cost. 

Why Men and Women Should Insure: 

(1) "Only one man in 100 who lives to be 50 leaves anything at death except 
his insurance. 

(2) Statistics show that 85% of the men who have money now will lose it before 
they reach the age of 65. 

(3) Of all the men living at age 65, 3% are self-supporting, the other 97% are 
dependent upon relatives or charity. 

(4) Out of 100 average healthy men age 35, statistics show the following facts 
when they reach 60: 

36 will be dead, 1 w-ill be rich, 4 will be wealthy, 54 will be dependent upon 
friends, relatives or charitj^" — "Eastern Underwriter." 

MORAL — Insure now while in good health, later yon may not pass an examination.

THE COAL SAVER

When you bu}^ a 
Heater the fuel 
consumption is im- 
portant. The 

Kelsey 
Warm Air 
Generator 

— is a powerful and 
economical Heater 
because it has dou- 
ble the heating sur- 
face and heating ca- 
pacity of ordinary fur- 
naces; and warms 
rooms by so much 
better methods that 
it cuts down the coal 
bills 20 to 30 per cent. 




The great KelseY 
weight also mea ns 
an even tempera- 
t u r e maintained 
longer. 

The Kelsey has 
earned its right to 
the name, "The 
Coal Saver."

STEPHENSON COUNTY 
CHURCHES 

THE true product of all cultural edu- 
cation as against technical or pro- 
fessional training is character. A 
bad man will hardly be a good citizen, 
and Christianity is necessary to the 
making of good men. The church bears 
the responsibility of the culture and 
development of the Spiritual Life; no 
other institution is specially charged 
with this duty. 

Religion must always underlie mor- 
ality. It is necessary to teach morals 
as a basis for a people's prosperity. 
Morality cannot be taught effectively 
without the Bible; the responsibility of 
teaching the Bible rests with the church. 

The church recognizes that conduct 
is the supreme test of religious validitj', 
and strives to instill in the hearts of the 
people the sense of truth and right that 
will direct them at all times to choose 

To the farmers, the church opens her 
doors for farmers' institutes, and lec- 
tures on farming. The church serves 
the farmer by bringing to his famiy, not 
only pleasant social activities, but seeks 
to surround them with pure and profit- 
able associations. Through the church 
his home is kept in vital and sympa- 
thetic touch with other homes, and 
trained in unselfish dealing and loving 
service. The church takes its place for 
good in every fight against wrong, and 
declaring its belief in the ultimate suc- 
cess of right, it inspires hope and 
blesses all men. The churches of 
Stephenson county are united in the de- 
sire to serve the farmers.

EYES EXAMINED 

Your success and future prospects 
depend in a large measure on 
your eyes. 

Think of trying to finish your work 
in 1917 without sight and you get a 
faint realization of how important it 
is to take excellent care of your eyes.

FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



Every road has two 
ends — at one end the 
farm, at the other the 
country town. Each 
depends on the other , 
and both prosper to-- 
gether. When the 
broad-minded mer- 
chants and the pro- 
gressive farmers work 
together for the good 
of the community, 
then you have a com- 
munity worth living in.

FARMERS AND BREEDERS, STEPHENSON COUNTY 



FREEPORT'S HIGH SCHOOL 

THE Freeport High School, with an 
enrollment of almost 700, is fast 
becoming a county educational in- 
stitution. At the present time there are 
more than 100 rural students in Free- 
port High School. They have always 
realized the value of the high school as 
an institution to prepare young men 
and }^oung women for college. To pre- 
pare for college these young people pre- 
pared themselves for life in the profes- 
sions and many are now prominent 
lawyers, doctors, teachers, engineers, 
architects, etc. 

Every year a large number of young 
people from the coimtry come into the 
high school to prepare to teach in the 
country schools. After completing the 
course in the high school they have al- 
ways been successful in passing the 
teachers' examinations, and many of 
them are today among the most suc- 
cessful teachers in Stephenson county. 

Another feature that has appealed 
strongly to the people of the country 
is the commercial department. The 
young people from the country who are 
alwaj's wide-awake to their opportuni- 



ties, realize that in Freeport High 
School they can master bookkeeping, 
typewriting, and stenography, and fill 
good positions creditably. ,The com- 
mercial department has had remarkable 
success. There are always more de- 
mands for high school graduates of this 
department than can be filled. At pres- 
ent, not one of the many graduates is 
out of work. The demand is great be- 
cause of the excellent training these 
young people receive. 

Boj^s and girls from the country have 
always taken advantage of the courses 
in manual training, cooking and sew- 
ing. 

The department of agriculture has 
been established three years. There 
are classes in field crops, animal hus- 
bandry, soils, farm machinery and 
dairying. These classes have taken 
great interest in the work. Aside from 
the text-books and instruction by the 
teachers, the classes have the benefit 
of charts, stereopticon views, and trips 
to farms in many parts of the county. 
Rural students have always stood high 
in scholarship, debates, band, orchestra, 
athletics and military.

PRAIRIE FARMER'S RELIABLE DIRECTORY 



You Can Use Prairie Farmer Every Day 

A GOOD many Prairie Farmer readers say that a farmer might as well try 
to farm without modern machinery as without Prairie Farmer. 
There is a good deal of truth in this statement — more than many 
farmers who have not been reading Prairie Farmer regularlj' realize. 

The keynote of Prairie Farmer's policy is service. All the energies and 
resources of the paper are used to this end. By doing for its readers many things 
that they are not in position to do for themselves, Prairie 
Farmer makes itself indispensable to them. For 76 years 
it has been a leader in Illinois agriculture, a position which it 
fills even more successfully than it did in 1841, when it was 
first published as Illinois' pioneer farm paper. 

It is not the primary purpose of Prairie Farmer to 
teach you how to farm. You know the peculiarities of your 
own farm better than we do, and experience has taught you 
more about the needs of each field than we can possibly 
MR. GREGORY know. Our task is to supplement your experience by adding 

to it the experience of ourselves and thousands of other farmers. 

When you meet your neighbor farmers in town, or talk with them over the 
back fence, you learn many a lesson from their experience, which is a much cheaper 
way to learn than to find it out at your own expense. You do not follow all 
the advice your neighbor gives you. But you do get from him many ideas that 
you can use with profit in your own business. 

Prairie Farmer makes every farmer in Illinois your neighbor. Whenever we 
hear of a farmer who has made a special success in any line of farming we find 
out how he did it, and print his experience for the benefit of other farmers. Some- 
times we get this information from him by mail. Sometimes we send a trained 
member of our staff to see him. No matter what the expense, we get this informa- 
tion, which, in many cases, is worth hundreds of dollars to our readers. 

No one farmer, of course, can follow out all the ideas from the experience of 
these successful farmers. But out of this wealth of experience and ideas each 
reader can find many things that will help him to make his farming more profitable. 

This is a service that can only be given by a farm paper published in your own 
state, edited by practical men, and full of the spirit of service to its readers. 

Prairie Farmer is proud of the fact that its editors are practical farmers. 
Clifford V. Gregory, Editor-in-Chief, owns and manages a 190-acre live stock 
farm in Northern Illinois. Frank I. Mann, Editor of the Soils and Crop department, 
writes from the experience of his 500-acre grain farm in the heart of the corn 
belt. Mrs. Lena Stevenson Mann, Home Department Editor, is a farmer's wife 
who writes from the heart of her own experiences in the farm home the articles 
that are an inspiration to farmers' wives all over the state. Horton Green, Poultry 
Editor, is a combination of poultryman and preacher, and is a success at both. 
Our legal department is in charge of one of Chicago's best lawyers, a man whose 
specialty is farm law. One of the best veterinarians in the country has charge of 
our veterinary department. This policy of keeping its feet on the ground makes 

192 



Prairie Farmer practical — a paper that sees the farmer's problems through the 
farmer's own eyes. 

Coupled with Prairie Farmer's policy of giving the best experience of success- 
ful farmers, is the policy of giving reports of the new facts brought out at all the 
leading experiment stations. Much of the work of the experiment stations is 
valuable to every farmer when stated in plain, brief English, with the frills cut 
out and only the practical facts left. The results of every important experiment 
in this country are given in Prairie Farmer. 

News as well as information is an important part of a real farm paper. Every 
farmer wants to know what is happening in the agricultural world. He wants 
reports of fairs, shows and important farmers' meetings. He wants to know what 
Congress and the State Legislature are doing along agricultural lines. All these 
things Prairie Farmer gives him. 

Our reports of the State Legislature are especially complete and valuable. 
"Bill's" comments on legislative affairs are mighty interesting reading and give 
the reader an insight into state politics that he cannot get in any other way. In 
publishing these letters Prairie Farmer is doing a work for better citizenship and 
better government that is bringing splendid results. 

After all, the true success of the farm is not measured by its production of 
corn and hogs, but by its boys and girls and its home life. The farm that is 
producing stalwart citizens, that is building character and real home life, is the 
farm that represents the highest type of success. 

That is the kind of a farm that Prairie Farmer wants every one of its 
readers to have. For that reason we devote a good deal of space to articles 
that will inspire the boys and girls, and the older folks, too, to higher ideals of 
farm and community life. In this we are doing a service that cannot be measured 
in dollars and cents, but that will be reflected in the homes and citizens of the 
future. 

Prairie Farmer guarantees every one of its advertisers. We promise that 
in dealing with them you will receive square and honest treatment. We go further 
than that, and do everything we can to protect our readers from fraud of every 
kind. We turn the searchlight of publicity on every swindler who tries to separate 
the farmer from his money, and by doing so save our readers thousands of 
dollars every year. 

You can take advantage of the feature of Prairie Farmer's service by con- 
sulting us before investing your money in any scheme that you do not know 
anything about. With the facilities at our command we will make a full investi- 
gation and give you a report. 

You can take advantage of Prairie Farmer's personal service in many other 
ways. We will help you solve everyday problems on your farm. Questions about 
farm law, live stock diseases, farm machinery, soils and crops, dairy, poultry, 
homemaking and any other line of farming are answered without charge for our 
readers. 

We want you to use Praiwe Farmer. We are your best friend, and are glad 
to do anything we can to serve you 

We are glad to have you in the Prairie Farmer family and want you to use 
Prairie Farmer every day.

THE FREEPORT CHAMBER OF 

COMMERCE 

The new Freeport Chamber of 
Commerce stands for everything that 
will help to make Freeport and the 
surrounding districts better for the 
people who live in the county. 

It is made up of public-spirited 
men, with big minds and big hearts; 
men who are giving their time and 
money to the uplifting and develop- 
inp- of the city and county. 

The Chamber of Commerce divides 
its work into several departments. 
Committees are appointed to look 
after the various departments, each 
committee being responsible for a 
certain part of the work that needs 
attention. 

The specific manner, and the par- 
ticular things to be done to bring 
about improvements are determined 
by the membership and a Board of 
Directors. 

The good that can be accomplished 
by a live Chamber of Commerce has 
no limit. Every public-spirited man 
in Stephenson County should lend a 
helping hand and get in touch with 
the Chamber wherever he may see a 
chance for a community betterment.
