TOUR VACATION IN COLORADO . Consider Colorado as a place to spend your summer vacation and you will find that it meets the requirements . Colorado has - been brought nearer the east by our fast train service—only one night on the road from Chicago or St . Louis to Denver . The railroad fare is low during the summer—about one-half the regular fare , and on certain days less than half .

Ail the outdoor sports that can be enjoyed anywhere are possible in Colorado . Plenty of goif courses and the finest kind of trout fishing . Just consider these facts for a minute and then write me for a copy of the Burlington s Handbook of Colorado . It does not attempt a description of Co...

He who should make such an assertion as that . would at once make himself the object of the most severe criticism upon the part of the aspiring and the hopeful men who are striving constantly to bring about a day of better things along this line . But we may safely take the ground that our profession has now reached higher ground than it ever stood upon before . When did we ever see so many thoughtful , earnest and financially strong men engaged in dairying as at the present time ? When have we ever had so many labor saving appliances to serve us in our chosen field as today ? And when were so many inventors studying upon the problem of how best to aid the man who wishes to turn his milk product most economically and most veadily...

The pigs should have a dry , clean bed , free from dust and filth . The cheapest pork is that made by the wise use of clover pasture . A sow should never he confined to a dry lot barren of all grasses and other forage . A sow in a good , thrifty condition will come in heat every seventeen ( to twenty days . The hog should find a place in the economical management of every farm . Sows during gestation should have plenty of opportunity for exercise to secure healthy pigs . No difference how plentiful the supply of slops , the hogs should have fresh water daily . Before farrowing sows are the better for an abundance of exercise ; let them have all they will take . While dust in the bed is injurious , more may be f said against dampness , which is fatal to thrift . The hog to thrive best mu...

Farmers need to steer clear from the use of intoxicating liquors , that ruin the body and befog the brain , unfitting them to ^ -properly manage their business . A- drunken man is worthless in any place that you may put him . A farmer needs all his brains kept in perfect order to succeed well in his honorable calling .
