THE PERKINS JOURNAL II Is Good I N CONTRAST to the drouth devastated regions in other parts of the state and country is this scene of plenty on the farm of Allen Engler in Shawnee county, near Topeka, Kan.. showing wheat being teshed. The locality is enjoying a banner wheat crop with an average yield of 25 bushels an acre, sell- ing at one dollar a bushel. EVEN SUMMER By DOUGLAS MALLOCH HO has not seen a summer rain Sweep swiftly o'er a sunlit plain7 Bright was the morn And soft the breeze, Yet gales are horn Of even these, And suddenly the sky is gray, Yes, even on a summer day. Who has not seen some summer hour Grow darker with a sudden show'r? Yet shall your own Be alway fair, And loss unknown, And hurt, and care? Shall life be always joy to you, The sky the same all "summer through? Who has not seen the rain appear? Who ever lived a cloudless year? The dripping leaf, The fallen nest, So comes some grief To ev'ry breast-- And even so to you it may, Yes. even on a summer day.

This is s friend. I don't know why he takes so much interest in me and brings me all these good things, and I don't care. I hope he'll keep right on bringing me apples, carrots, and such things. They certainly do taste good to me." Sometimes the stranger came early in the morning and sometimes he came late in the afternoon. Al- ways he left something for Jerry and Jerry was very grateful. Those feasts saved him a lot of time and trouble hunting for food. This gave him more time to work on his house and make it ready for winter. Jerry had a feeling that the winter was going to be a hard one, and he in- tended to be fully prepared for it. So he worked hard making the roof and walls of his house thicker than usual and making his tunnels in the ANNABELLE'S ANSWERS By RAY THOMPSON SUCH A RUN OF PLAYS RICENTLY ROW A.

Jerry so lost all fear of that stranger that sometimes he would work when he knew that the strang- er was watching him. However, he always took care to see that the stranger had no gun with him. Had the stranger had a gun Jerry would at once have been suspicious and would have kept out of sight. As it was, he would keep right on work- ing until the stranger left, and then hurry over to see what he had for him. Jerry was very happy and quite without fear. T, W.

Little Walled-in Cities Greatest attractions of all in Ghent, Belgium, are the lay Be- guinages, or nunneries. Only a few of these can be found in Europe. Here they are little walled cities within the city and in them live some five or six hundred Beguines, women who take no vows, but re- tire thus from the world for a time, The little cities of walled-in quiet are scrupulously tidy and neat, and each has its little parks, squares and churches. The Beguines them- selves pay taxes just as other citi- zens do, and each of them is free to to the life and business of the world at any time. It is not un: common for Belgian women to go to these nunneries for a few months, spending their days in making lace and carrying out rehgious devotions, then to return home to their old household tasks. II I Sanitation Pays in Raising Hogs Quarters, Feeding, Handling Are Important Points as Economy Measure.  By PROF, JOHN P. WILLMAN, N@w York fftste Collelge Of AErleultur,-- VNU Service, The hog has been called "an ani- mal that deserves its name," but when it comes to economy in con- vetting feed into edible meat, the hog excels all other farm animals. As one of the best housekeepers, a hog will keep his quarters clean if given a chance. He should not be criticized too severely for dig- ging holes in the ground or for wal- lowing in the mud, because this is the only way the hog has to cool himself. Swine are not equipped with so many sweat glands as are other farm animals, and for this rea- son they like to dampen their bod- ies to become cool. Many farmers would undoubted- ly fund that their hogs would be more profitable with more sanitary quarters and better feeding and handling. Every breeder should aim to produce the type of pig that feeders, breeders, and butch- era demand, and he should do his best to enable his swine to convert as economically as possible the va- rious feeds suitable for swine into food for human use. Plenty of Water, Salt, Life-Saver for Horses Sudden hot weather, intense and continued for days, usually brings reports of horses being lost from over-heating. This is unnecessary. Good horsemen do not lose horses, no matter how hot the weather may be. The Horse and Mule Association of America advises taking a cou- ple of barrels of water, on a wagon or stoneboat, to the field, and al- lowing the horses opportunity to drink at the end of each hour. If this is done, and the animals are allowed access to all the salt they want in stables, or in pastures when turned out at night, heat losses will not occur. The same p]anplenty of water and all the salt they want--allowed to men who work about coke ovens, where the temperature is about 135 degrees, has stopped heat prostra- tions among men. It works, with men or with horses, and is so sim- ple, so easily adopted, that there is no excuse for losing horses from overheating, no matter how hot the weather is. Common sense in working ani- mals, water every hour and all the salt the animals want, is all good horsemen use in handling their work animals in hot weather. It will save work stock from heat prostrations. Foot Rot in Sheep Foot rot in sheep is a chronic . Infectious disease of the tissues of the foot, and remains more or less localized to that area. The eco- nomic importance of foot rot lies in the severe losses which the own- er sustains from a long period of inactivity  of the ln/eeted animals' from the loss :of body weight, from decreased wool clip, from the di- minished milk production at lamb. ing time, and finally from the prob- able infection of the newborn and others. Music for Milk "Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast"--and to make cows give more milk. A farmer in a vil- lage on the German-Czechoslovaki- an frontier plays the concertina every morning to his cows. He first noticed that one refractory an- lmal became docile when it heard the strains of the concertina, and applying this lesson to the 0ther cows found that they submitted more readily to milking and gave increased yields.: Agricultural Hints Potato varieties do not cross in the field. New varieties are pro- duced from real seeds. Agricultural conditions in Great Britain are much better than s Year ago. Yellow corn meal has more of vitamin A than white meal, but otherwise the food value is about the same. @ @ @ Trees grow best on well cUltivat- ed soil which slopes to the north or east, Loose, porous sell  much better than hard clay.
