STOMACH WORMS IN
SHEEP ARE MENACE
Os the internal parasites common
to sheep the stomach worm Is a real
menace to the farm sheep Industry.
While the parasite is found in sheep
of all ages, lambs are principally af
fected. The older sheep, although
showing no symptoms of the parasite,
are usually responsible for the spread
of the disease.
The worm Is thread-like, usually
somewhat coiled, about an Inch in
length and from a reddish tb dirty
white in color. The parasite may be
found in the fourth stomach of in
fected animals at any time of year.
The pest is transferred to healthy ani
mals through pastures. The eggs,
which are excreted from infected ani
mals in the feces, hatch In from
twelve to twenty-four hours. In ten
to fourteen days the parasites reach
the embryo stage, crawl to a blade
of grass where they are eaten by the
There are no visible diagnostic
symptoms by which one can dis
tinguish the disease from other in
ternal parasitic diseases. A post
mortem examination of a sick or re
cently dead animal will show the
presence or absence of the parasites.
If present, the worms will be found
near or imbedded In the walls of the
fourth stomach. In general, the
symptoms of Internal parasites of any
kind are a dullness or lack of thrift
in the animal followed by diarrhea.
Eradication requires a combination
of rotation of pastures and medical
treatment. Infected pastures may be
made safe by keeping sheep and cat
tle off from them for a year. Burn

one season Is also satisfactory. Often

There are three different medical
treatments that may be used satis
factorily, namely: the coal-tar creo

are to be used, the flock should be

hours before treating and for four
Clean House Essential
for Success With Pigs
A clean hog house is the first requi
site in connection with raising a
healthy crop of pigs, says the Nebras
ka Agricultural college. Merely scrap
ing, shoveling and sweeping the dirt
out of a shed does not make that shed
safe for new-born pigs. Round-worm
eggs and tilth-born disease germs
which are the sources of our most
destructive pig troubles are micro
scopic in size and thousands of them
may be contained in the dirt and
filth which can only be removed by
washing. The only way to destroy
worm eggs is to boil them. A good
disinfectant will destroy the germs
which cause bull-nose, mange, pig
typhoid, etc. To make the hog house
safe, scrub it with boiling lye water.
The lye will cut the dirt. Then spray
all posts and walls with a solution of
liquid cresolis (30 to 1) and put in
fresh clean bedding.

By WILLIAM A. RADFORD
Mr. William A. Radford will answer
questions and srlve aJvice FREE; OF
COST on all subjects pertaining; to the
subject of building, for the readers of
this paper. On account of his wide
experience as Editor, Author and
Manufacturer, he is, without doubt,
the highest authority on all these sub

“My home must be of an unusual
type” is one of the conditions often
made by those who are preparing to
build a new home. A home of the
modern renaissance of the Spanish
type, such as Is shown here, meets the
desire for a residence of a distinctive
and comfortable type.
Houses of this type owe their Amer
ican origin to the Spanish pioneers
who reproduced on the new coutiuent
the typical architecture of old Spain.
Like Spain, America has extremes of
climate which range from the heat
of the southland to the rigors of the
northern winters. This is a type of
Hallway Is Barometer of
Personality of Homemaker
The hallway offers the visitor a first
Impression of your home. It Is a sort
of barometer by which the newcomer
will unconsciously Judge the personal
ity of the homemaker.
Whether large or small the hallway
should be inviting. It should be fur
nished In good taste, blending the in
formal with the formal. If the re
mainder of the house Is decorated in
the informal atmosphere of a cozy
apartment or small home, the hall
should offer this atmosphere with a
touch of the formal about It. That
note will make the intimate rooms
more attractive by contrast.
There are so many different types
of hallways, from the extremely small
one to the “living hall,", that It is-not
practical to offer spqglflc methods pf
decorating. Yet ever* hallway, re
gardless of size, sfimijd be equipped
with the essential Accessories. A chair
or bench for guests who may have to
wait. A console table which provides
a mirror by which lucOmlpg or depart
ing guests can give a •■final survey of
if their appearance. A tray for letters
should be provided and a plate for
calling cards. An umbrella stand of
fers a splendid service.
When these details have been pro
vided. the hallway can be “dressed"
to suit the remainder of the home.
Simplicity should be the keynote of
the foyer as gaudy decorations are out
of the pale of. good taste.
Make Contract Include
Every Item Agreed Upon
The purchaser of property who
takes for granted that certain Im
provements will be made Is more than
likely to be disappointed unless he
holds a written agreement. It seems
to be an almost universal habit for the
seller to lose Interest in the buyer Im
mediately the transaction has been
consummated and the money turned
over, and through this condition It Is
very unwise to trust to oral agree
Investigation and survey of the ab
stract county records, etc., are abso
lutely necessary, and the purchaser
who buys without following out this
fine of procedure has himself to blame
construction which can be made cool
In summer and warm In winter.
The exterior is of a vari-colored
stucco, against which the brightly col
ored awnings stand out in bright con
trast. The warm red of the tiled roof
and the grass-defined flags of the walk
and driveway are two other effective
The most striking feature of the in
terior is the living room, which has a
chapel celling, Iff feet high, which
makes the room most impressive. The
French windows open on the semi
patio, which seems to be preferred in
America to the inclosed patio typical
of the real Spanish home.
The terrace off the dining room Is
an attractlce feature, Iwhlle the kitch
en and pantry are atVauged for con- *
venience. The three bedrooms are
well arranged and of adequate size.
The outside dimensions of the house
are 36 by 49 feet.
Notice that the complete electrical
wiring system is ludicated in the floor
when It Is discovered the property has
been sold for taxes and tlie title #
clouded through this condition. Title
guarantee or title Insurance Is the
only safe means of protection. This
guarantees against fraud in the trans
fer of the property, but does not guar
antee verbal agreements as to repairs
and changes. In this matter one must
protect himself by writing in the con
tract the items agreed upon.
Steel Basement Windows
Practical and Artistic
The great superiority of high-grade
steel windows for basement use is well
recognized by all who have used them.
This refers to the solid steel window,
windows built of solid steel bars, not
to hollow metal windows.
Solid'steel windows are artistic and
serviceable, permit of more light and
air, and are unaffected by climate.
They cannot swell or warp and re
quire no refitting.
The steel wirfdow Is' now placed on
the market In standard sizes, which
permits of Its use for residential pur
pose. and through this condition is
generally being used in the better
built homes for basement use, almost
to the exclusion'of all other types.
Locate With Care
Location of the tree may determine ■
its selection as well as soil and cli
mate. If there is smalt space which
may be devoted to the future develop
ment of the tree, says the American
Tree association of Washington. It
would not be satisfactory to plant one
which will attain huge proportions.
More than any other determining fea
ture In tree selection Is the purpose
which the tree Is to serve. For a
2-cent stamp for postage the associ
ation will send tree-planting sugges
tions. The planter should study trees
growing In his Immediate neighbor
hood and pick out the variety which
will best serve his needs.
Drawers in Kitchen
Under the dish closet In the kitchen
Is an excellent place to hare drawers
Installed. If at least three of these
drawers are no deeper than four or
five inches, towels and dishcloths may
i be kept and found.
