jn efficient remedy is at hand. Pre- ;
ventioß in most cases is not difficult
HOT costly, and pays big dividends.
The poultry liock is subject to a
number of diseases, some of which
spread rapidly and cause big losses.
The birds may also be Jfitesled with
various parasites, some of which live
on the surface of the bedy and others .
in the various parts of the Interior
Such parasites, whether they are out- j
side or inside workers, are injurious !
because they take a part of the
nourishment which should be u>ed to
put on flesh or to produce eggs, and ■
also because of irritation and in j
flamraation of the parts they attack.
The contagious diseases caused by
germs and the weakness and loss of
flesh caused by the larger parasites
are the most important conditions
which the poultryman must consider in
order to keep his in health. These
germs and parasites can be kept down
by suitable preventative measures, and
the aim of study of the diseases
should be to learn prevention rather
than cure. Medicines may be given ad
vantageously at times but as a rule, as
has been suggested, it is better to kill
the sufferer. There is another reason
not yet mentioned that makes the kill
tag of sick birds desirable. Birds that
first contract diseases are apt to be
the weakest ones in the flock and
should be culled out.
The more birds kept on a farm or
plot of ground and the more they are
crowded the greater the danger from
contagion and parasites, and the more
important the measures for excluding,
eradicating, and preventing develop
ment of these causes of disease.
The best way to do this is to secure
eggs from a flock that has shown no
dication of contagious disease for at
east a year, if precautions are taken
to keep the eggs absolutely clean and
ey are batched in a thoroughly
cleaned Incubator the young chicks will
a ' e 8 m bch better chance. They will

escaping disease if they are raised

PLANT A PASTURE THIS FALL.
Raleigh, Oct 20.—Hundreds of de
monstrations made by county agents
through the central portion of North
Carolina prove the value of grasses
and clovers for profitable farming.
It is only under very exceptional cir
cumstances that livestock can be suc
cessfully grown without grazing and
now is the time to get these pastures
ready, suggests C. R. Hundson, State
Agent for the extension division of
the State College and Department of
Agriculture. Mr. Hundson says that
after October 15 will be most too late
In making a pasture in this state,
Mr. Hudson says, “Varous mixtures
of grasses and clovers grow well but
should be varied 'ao£Cr£ir.£ condi
tions. The following general formula
has proven valuable for the central
Dart of the state: Orchard grass, Ita
lian rye grass and red top, eight lb.
each of seed with four pounds of red
clover seed for planting an acre. On
the damper and lower soils of the
more eastern counties 8 pounds of Al
sike clover seed should be substituted
for red clover. In most of the east
ern counties, too, Janan and White
Clover make a valuable addition in
the spring. , , , , ~ ,
“Os course the seed bed should be
well prepared and well fertilized. In
mast cases lime is espe
cially where clover is planted. Only >
poor results will be had with grass,
coed planted on noor, unfertilized soil.
It is not advisable to waste seed un
der such conditions. Land that will
make a bale of cotton, or 35 to 40 bu
shels of corn per acre, should grow
grass successfullv. Clover seed should
be inoculated with either natural or
artificial inoculation. ’Hie seed should
be sown on top of well prepared soil
and covered by a brush _or board
drag, rather than by a spike toothed
harrow. , ,
“Where cotton stalks are ploughed

HOW TO KILL ROACHES.
Raleigh, Oct. 20. —Roaches can be
successfully exterminated in the house
pantry by scattering sodium fluoride
on the shelves or floors oyer which
they run. This chemical is relative
ly cheap and can be procured through
the druggist. It is deadly poisonous
to the roach but only mildly poison
! ous to man and can, therefore, be used
with safety in the pantry, says Dr. R.
W. Leibv, of the Division of Entomol
ogy of the State College and Depart
ment of Agriculture.
“Care should be taken, however, not
to sprinkle the sodium fluoride over
food or to scatter it within the reach
of children. It can be swept up in
a week after it has been scattered,
but should be reapplied two weeks lat
er to poison other roaches which may
have hatched from eggs in the mean
time,” suggests Dr. Leiby.
One hundred and fifty Club boys
and fifty Club girls took part in the
i contests and demonstrations arranged
: at the State Fair by the Agricultural
Extension Service last week.
