In the digging of this ditch he encountered several large willow stump3 which were at least one hundred years old but still in a pretty sound state f preservation. Knowing that I was accqstomed to using dynamite, he culled upon me to blast oul tnese stumps standing in water, for it was too wet and boggy to get them otherwise.

Give the pigs an abundance of good pasturage. They should be kept on pasture as long as possible and gain the benefit of its cheap nutrients, especially min-erand protein, and its tonic and digestive qualities. But pigs on pasturage alone,, even alfalfa, need some grain supplement. The amount of grain or other concentrated feed used would depend on how much pasturage is available, or the cost factor of grain or other feeds, on the age and condition of the pigs, and the time at which the farmer expects to market them. Less protein supplement is needed when piggs are run on leguminous pastures. Under most farm conditions the pigs will gain well on a one to two per cent., grain ration. The method makes for cheap and rapid gains. If the g grain ration is limited, the method is better. By feeding once a day in the early evening, pigs take greater advantage of the pasture and graze hungrily during the cool of the morning or afternoon. Plenty of fresh, clean drinking water should always be available. Pigs on pasture usually get enough exercise. They should have a clean, dry, shelter to guard against exposure to storms and to supply shade. A concrete wallow will add to the pigs' comfort, and a layr of oil on the water will keep down lice. Clean bedding also helps to keep away lice, as will an oiled sack on a rubbing post, or sprinkle the pigs with crude oil every two weeks. ol self-feeding hand-feedin- well-ventilat- ed highly organized, national machine in the history of the world. Germany efficiency was well recognized by all peoples before the breaking of the storm of 1914, and appointed to as an example to be emulated. Now, this efficiencythis singleness of purpose and Dower of concentration which placed German science and industry on a high pinnacle has been diverted to the arts of war. Germany is just as efficient at war as at peace. It is this power that menaces the world It is this power ,that America must overcome if it is to make democracy safe. It would seem that the crises y is the test of efficiency. The battle is against autocracy, but it is also against efficiency. And until America is in a position to meet the task efficiently the result will be uncertain. Our country and our people are to a certain extent awakening to these facts. The Government is making progress haltingly, some of us will say but we must remember in our criticism that we have an entire national frame of mind to make over; and the people, through such agencies as the National Security League and the Federal Committee of Public information, are cording to a knowledge of the seriousness of the situation and its exigencies.

Democracy vs. Efficiency. President Wilson laid down i 45-- America's platform in the war with the words "to make the world safe for democracy" the most high, noble and idealistic aim ever a nation had in entering the lists of battle. The United States has taken up arms to fight for democracy against autocracy. As the conflict becomes more closely joined and the realization takes a firmer hold in our minds that the burden of, the war must eventually fall upon this country we see that there is another meaning to this struggle. America a democracy, committed by its very existence and ideals to the arts of peace is v engaged in deadly combat with the molt About the first work I did with dynamite was to tackle a big field of stumps. For this I used a 40 per cent, grade which is about the proper thing to use g on ordinary for soils. Ifind.thatonlow, boggy ground, where the stumps are very large and tough, it is more economical to use a higher grade of dynamite, such as 50 or 60 per cent, placing it under the stump and firing electrically by a blasting machine. All very large tough stumps over three feet in diameter, such as oaks, hickory, and elm, should be blasted only by this method. The distributed charges will then all ko off together, and the combined effect of the several charges so distributed will give a much better blast than putting the entire charge in one hole bored directly under the stump. A few months ago a neighbor stump.-blastin- With the exception of alfala on fertile soils, no other leguminous crop will furnish as much nutritious pasturage from early spring until late fall as sweet clover, when it is properly handled. Live stock thrive on it. Animals which have never been fed sweet clover may refuse to eat it at first, but this distaste can be overcome by turning them on the pasture as soon as the piants start growth. There is practically no danger from bloat from sweet clover. When sweet clover has been seeded two years in succession on separate fields sown the first year may be pastured until the middle of June, when the stock should be turned on the spring seeding. When handled in this manner excellent pasturage is provided throughout the summer and a hay or seed crop may be harvested from the field seeded the previous season. Some of the best pasturages in Iowa consist of a, mixture of Kentucky bluegrass, timothy, and sweet clover. On one large farm stock is pastured on mead-.ow- s containing this mixture, from the first part of April to the middle of June. From this time until the first part of SepS tember the stock is kept on one half to two thirds the total pasturage, while the remainder of the pasture land is permitted to mature a seed crop. Usually from two to four bushels an acreof recleaned seed are obtained from this portion of the pasture. After the seed crop is harvested, the stock again is turned on to this acreage, where they feed on the grasses and first year sweet clover plants until coldweather. The seed which shatters when the crop is cut is usually sufficient to reseed the pasture. . 1 g..:datea HENRY W. DEPP, DENTIST Am permanently located in Co Iumbia. All Classes or Dental work done.
