' In nearly every part of the United

vor, a business that require moro

: ISrooin corn requires more warmth

sandy soil when it Is warmed by the
sun. The kind should be prepared in

iThe standard variety is tho Evergreen,
and when good seeds of this ate ob

crop may be anticipated. The dwarf

A few tastily painted trellises in the

foliugo and lucious fruit hanging down
from their latticed roofs, are no mean
ornament, uod vie with plants or
vines having no other use than to loolc

trellis, or, if the location admit,
training two viner, one on each side,
takes only a few years. It is truo
that as good fruit may be grown on
vines trained to stukes or wires, but it
Is hardly as satisfactory to a man who
wishes to rcallzo the biblical Idea of
entire safety, that of sitting under
one's own vine, with no ono to molest.

ate frost. When the clover plant
has only lis second leaf it has very
little root, and this has only, slight

A change of food Is ulways sensible
at short intervals. (live the cow bran

a week. It will help the digestion

No one should cast injurious reflec
tions upon the fancy dairymen. We
owe much to them, their successes are
xamplcs for us, and their mistakes or
failures are valuable Iohsoiis by which
we may guide our practices.
Stables should be put in order for
winter use early. A good coat of
hot whitewash or fresh lime, with a
few ounces of hard soap dissolved in u
pail full of it, will cleanse and sweeten

Now, us a matter of fact, false teeth

The 1'aee or a Cripple,
As I was coming down town tlo
other evening In a car a hunchbiclt en
tered. A friend who sat with me asked
mo if Iliad observe! that thj faca's
of nil hunchbacks and cripple were
deformed as well as their bodies. I
mean." bo said, "that their faces aro
pinched and drawn, and that if you
saw the faoeonly.ns though an opening
in the wall, you would know tit once,
if you had been an observant man.
that it was tho face of a cripple. A
physician would know it, at any rate."
I told him that I had observed tha fact
and asked him why it was. He re
plied: -Many, think that it Is simply
because cripples do not take enough
exercise, being unable to do so. I do
not think that is tho reason. Other
persons who do not t:ske exercise have
white faces, but tho lips aro not so
thlu and close, and there is not that
drawn look In all the features. Don't
you see that it la a look of suffering?
It may not be of bodilv suffering, but
1 believo that their countenances are
that way because of the mental an
guish they endure all through life.
You know the effect of an extreme
sorrow 011 tho face of a healthy man
in one week or a month. How much
difference it must make when that
sorrow is never absent from him.
There aro rare instances where the
pinched look is almo.st overcome by
cheerfulness," my friend went on. "It
can never get entirely away. One of
tho most cheerful cripples I ever
knew was tho mayor of aTennsylvanla
city for ihreo year.- He mixed with
mou and look an interest in affairs,
und although he is a hunchback, he
seems ro iliy lo enjoy life. Ho goes
shooting with the boys, and there are
few better men In that vicinity with
a gun. Ho has color iu his face and
brightness In his eyes; yet I am satis
fied that If, for tho first tlmo. you saw

Wrinkles are accentuated by it, aa
