These children range in age from three months to fourteen years and they are posssbly the brightest and most attractive set of girls and boys we have ever had. The success of our work depends upon placing them, in good homes, and we trust that those citizens who are willing to help the work will notify us of their willingness to take achild and will write the institution, 1036 Baxter Ave., Louisville, Ky., at their earliest convenience. Only first class citizens who have Christian homes need apply for the children, for we will not send them into homes where the children will not have the very best of Christian care and attention. We do not mean by this that we expect only rich people to take the children, for some of the very best placements we make are with people who are in moderate circumstances. The Master's saying, "Inasmuch as ye did it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, je have done ij unto me" possibly was meant for just such work as this and at just such a time as this.

If the cows in a dairy herd are pay ing an average of $100 a year, make an effort to raise it to S200. Perhaps the quickest way to gain this end is by discarding all animals that fail t& give five gallons of milk per day for the greater part of the year.

It is not necessary that the farmer should replace all of his grade cows-withigh priced, pure bred Holsteins--Jerseyor Ayrshire Guernseys Bowever, for successful and profitable' dairying it is absolutely necessary that he realize the remarkable difference capacity of the individual cows in the same herd, though thesr cows are cared for by the same marand are consuming practically the? same amount of feed. Recently a herd of hogs from the northwest was sold in one of the central markets for 8.00 per 100 pounds. A herd of similar size from a so called? corn belt state sold in the same market on the same day for $7.93. hogs were fed a variety Including barley, a liberal amount of alfalfa, a little ground wheat, some corn and some sugar beet sirup. The? other herd of hogs was fattened at most exclusively on corn. Not only did the northwestern hogs? bring a higher price per 100 pounds but they put on flesh more rapidly than the others and were? In every way more satisfactory. Witt the present knowledge of alfalfa growing no farmer, even in the stric! corn states, can find a reasonable for not having some of this his hogs. Hogs need to run at large In a field where there is forage. This may be clover, alfalfa, rape or artichokes, iu this way they attain growth and put 03 fle&h better than they will if penned up. If they can have whey or skimmed milk once a day this will assist the economical production of meat-Th- e aim must be to bring the hog up to 200 or 300 pounds at such a moderate cost that there will be a liberal profit when It is marketed. With an abundance of hay and corn there ought to be a good profit in fattening beef animals, few or many, according to the size of the farm. Is would appear that with the judicious selection of feeders, with the careful handling of the animals while in the feed lot and with an even break on other conditions, cattle feeding ought-tbe fairly profitable.

In view of former effortsand failures, this subject again is approached with the slightest confidence of success; but be that as it may The News cannot fiddle while Adair suffers.The building of substantial roads means so much in the development of our farms, in the creation of values, of better citizenship, so much more of pleasure and profit that no matter what the cost, we ought to build a few miles every year. It has been estimated to cost $1500 per mile for grading and putting the metal on the roads, and at this cost with the aid that can be secured from the State road fund, wp could build ten miles of good road in this county every year. To do so it would be necessary to make a levy for this purpose and then have the people to contribute along the roads to be built, which would be fair and right. We do not pro pose to further discuss this proposition more than to make the following suggestion. The Fiscal court will meet next month, and while it has the legal authority to start and maintain the building of permanent roads, yet it is not likely that any thing will" be done.
