Wby Itroud Tired Wheels I'ny.
A wagon going up hill requires more
force to draw it than when it Is moved
on a level. When a wheel Rinks in soft
soil there Is an elevation of the ground
In froivt of It equal to the depth of the
sinking. When a narrow wheel sinks
three or four luche In the ground the
effect is precisely the same as If the
wagon was going up the same Incline
w hen the broad wheel Ls used, but If It
does not sink in the ground this obsta
cle dot's not exist. The surface of the
wheel does not interfere In the least
with the druft of a wagon even on solid,
hard ground, and It must be evident
that the broad wheel will not cut Into
a road as a narrow one will, and thus
on soft roads must be easier draft. By
the use of a broad-tlced wagon when
a new road Is being laid out, It will
soon be rolled hard and solid, so that
even a aarrowtlred wagon will not cut
In, but attempt to make a road during
the average harvest, winter or ftprlng
season with narrow-tired wagons and
the job will usually prove a failure.

l-'ruil of die Grape,
We learn from liiny that there waa
In existence a famous wine made 200
years Is-fore. It was so thick that it
had to be dug out with a spoon and dis
solved iu water.
Scarcely a nation on the face of th
globe has not used ah-ohol In some form
or other. There seems to be an lnnarta
craving in mankind for Intoxh-atlDg
llijuors. The Greeks alone Becmcd able
to use the beverages and keep sober.
The strongest drink was natural wine,
containing no uiore alcohol than our
claret, yet they always added water to
It. The wildest diners never drank
wine that was not a third water, for
they drank for exhilaration, not intoxi
The Macedonians, however, over
threw Greek temperance. They were
heavy drinkers and were led by the
king himself. Once when a suit waa
being tried one of the contestanti
shouted: "I appeal." "To wham?''
asked liiilip, contemptuously. "I am
the king." "I appeal," said the man,
"from liiilip drunk to Philip sober."
The suit was retired tlie next day and
decided to the man's satisfaction.
The later Romans cared more for
their wine tlian for any other product.
There were 125 varieties In use, eighty
of fine quality. Common wine was very
chiiip, and It was u Joke that it was lesa
expensive than water. It was common
to mix honey and various spices with
the wine; a more surprising admixture
was that of salt, which was supposed
to Improve the flavor. Another, and to
us barbarous, habit was that of add
ing resin or turpentine. This is done
In Greece tip to the present day.
Among the Romans for a few hun
dred yetiiu people were temperate, wine
w as scarce and poor and was reserved
exclusively for the men over tarty
years of age. Women were forbidden
to use It, under pain of death, for the
alleged reason that It was an Incentive
to high living. Women were obliged to
greet all their male relatives with a
kiss on the mouth, so that. It could be
told If they had lioen to the wine cellar.
I'liny quotes tlie case of one who cudg
eled his wife to death for having sam
plisl his wine a,nd was pardontMl by
Romulus. Four hundred years later a
Roman dame was slnrved to death by
her relatives for a similar offense

An apple tree will nearly care for
Itself, but the man who wants good
trees In the future will thin his frutr.
If a tree bore one hundred apples I
should remove fifty. If the next year
It bore two hundred I should leave one
hundred to ripen, and the next, If it had
a thousand 1 should leave six hundred.
This will get the tree into the habit
of bearing. A peach tree that will set
a thousand peaches needs to nave six
or seven hutched thinned off. Thus
you will get more bushebs to the tree.
The more you throw away the more
you will have, and you will practically
gel $4 for $1.
After producing fine fruit learn how
to sell It for the most money. The
fruit which brings most is that which
is neatest, fullest and most honestly
packed. lick your fruit carefully and
In the cool of the day. Tack in a. cool
place and In tight packages, for the less
air that reaches the fruit the better.
Then put the crates In a cool place. In
packing grade your fruit; the finest
first, then medium, etc. The three or
four grades should be uniform through
out. Ask your dealers what kind of
packages sell best. Next get a good
dealer and tell him you have a good
thing. Have your commission man go
and see your place. The business side
of fruit growing means belief In your
self anil then making those with whom
you trude believe In you. Finally, do
not go into the business until you have
thought it out and made up your mind

Profitable Hen
In my operations iu the ioultry line
1 have never found any breed to pos
sess so uuiny points of excellence, with
I lie ordinary treatment of the average
farmer, as the Plymouth Rocks. They
pay me. I have had a flock of forty
Plymouth Rock hens average me $1.45
per hen for the year, with a country
market for poultry and eggs. They
had the run of the farm taul barn, with
an abundance of 'sour milk and such
grains a.s the farm produced. This
f-eemed to furnish all they ik-slred, ex
cept grit, which was supplied in plas
ter scraped from the walls of an old
house. Now, with a larger flock, I am
feeding buckwheat mostly, raking It
deep lido chaff and straw, with bone
and meat scraps obtained from butch
its. The hens have plenty of warm
water to drink, and they take lots of it,
too. My hens are kept In what was
once a hay bay, now fitted with win
dows and devoted to poultry. It Is
light, warm and roomy. Joins the main
barn floor by a sliding door, and the
hens are let out a w hile each day and
given the run of the entire bam, both
for exercise and to save scattered
grain. It works as well as a more cost
ly arrangement and keeps the fowls in
splendid vigor. Last spring there was
scarcely an Infertile egg iu all my
hatch. Maine Bulletin.
Straw Stuck Stuhlca.
Wherever grain Is largely grown the
straw left after threshing will make
a cheap anil warm stable for stm-k the
ensuing winter. All that is needed Is
to set posts In the ground close enough
together so that they will form a good
support for a tlat roof, ami pile the
straw over it and on at least three
sides. The side not built up against
may be used wholly as a door for stoek
to run In and out, or It may be boarded
up, and one or two board doors made.
Sometimes this straw stable Is made
against the side of a stack, and the ani
mals are allowed to eat iulo It. This,
however, Is a dangerous practice, for
late in winter stock may eat fur enough
so as to disturb the balance of the
stack, bringing it over on I hem, and
sniot lifting them. Whore the stack is
built over a stout shed there is no such
danger, it can Ik- easily madeas warm
as any basement barn, and without
miivh cost except of the straw. Ameri

Sowing (truss Heed.
One of the questions being
at the farmers' institutes is whether
the old-time custom of sowing grass
seeii on grain is as beiieici;i of good
i t" oils as sowing the mms! alone. It Is
I. lie that the grain shades the grow
ing grass, but the stronger root growth
of the grain crop must to n certain e)i
tctit affect the young grass. Then
there Is the advantage, when grass seed
Is sown without using grain land, of
('"rough preparation of the soil for
the grass crop, which Is not Hie case
when grain is seeded in the fall and
grass In the spring. It Is possible that
if grass seed Is sown on land lii.ii is
line and ready for Ihe seed it will make
much greater growth than when Kown
on grain and llius escape (he effects of
Ihe dry season, which usually comes In
summer. On sandy soil clover and the
various grasses may be seeded down
In August, but on clay soil the frost
may throw the plants out during the
wlnler. It Is a mistake, however, to
Kiipose that a grass crop can not be
grown from spring seeding without the
old of a grain crop.

of tlie chief merits of the plane Is it
'ate flowering quality. By its neve we

should always be grown a Tarlety or
two of our late native asters. The two
plants are boon coropa-nions, and on
setjiiis lonely without the other. Cer
'ainly the yellow glory of the goldeta
rod Is greatly heightened by the purple
haze of the less iwy but equally
beautiful flowers, and between these
there Is a contrast that is full of moat
harmonious effects.
tsiiilina Ifarn Doora.
There should be no toleration of that
old-fashioned swinging barn doom,
which winds will soon break from their
hinges, making it Inqiossjble to operate
them except by lifting the door and
carrying it arouud. The sliding doors
on iron rollers are easily kept in order,
and are worked so easily thai a little)
child has power enough to operate on
of them. They iiave also the advan
tage that the door may be slightly open
ed and kept In that position, which,
would be difficult to do with a door
swinging on hinges. The sliding door
came into use when basement baraa
were constructed. Ill such case tlie
doors on the lower side, where they
w ere 10 to 12 feet above the basement,
had to lie put on rollers. The conveni
ence of the sliding door now makes it
more lesirable on barns, however they
may be constructed.
Sowiiiic Grans Seed.
Clover seed on grain Is sown as early
as it can le done. It will be an advan
tage to go over the grain field with a
smoothing harrow, which will not only
bene tit the grain but prepare the
ground somewhat for the seed. Do not
try to seed by u&iiiig the hand, but soar,
with a seed sower, a wheelbarrow seed
sower being excellent. If the wheat
plants have been loosened by frost sow
ihe clover seed and run the roller over
the laud. The weather condition
must, of course, influence the matter.
Many farmers sow clover seed on the
snow, allowing the rains and melting
snow to carry the seed down; buit there
will occur a large loss of seed, which
will Ik1 eaten by birds, some will freeee
and become worthless, jiortioue win
not be covered by earth and the
"catch" will largely depend on s-pring
Potatoes After Corn.
It is possible to grow a good potato
crop after corn if the latter has been
planted on an old sod heavily manured.
In such case a good deal of the virtu
of the Bod was not secured by the corn
crop, and there Is besides a dressing
of well-rotted manure to be turned up
by the spring plowing. It is much bet
ter to plant early potatoes on such land,
and to plant them as early as a good
seed bed can be had. Without a freeth.
sod to decay and furnish plant food
and moisture in midsummer, the re
sult with late potatoes would be that
they dry up just at the critical time
for making a crop.
Varieties of Peac hes.
It Is believed that failures with
peaches In many sections are partially
due to the proper varieties for each
section of the country uot being select
ed. To learn more on the subject ton
work of testing the varieties has been
submitted to twenty-four experiment
stations, and it Is believed that the re
sults will be very beneficial. One of
the great difficulties in the way Is that
of procuring varieties true to name. It
is seldom that a peach grower succeeds
lu procuring the exact varieties order
ed unless he knows from whom to buy
or has evidence that no mistake will
be made.
The Itest TnrkeyH for Breeding.
It Is not surprising that turkey
should soon run out and become infer
ior in every way, when we remember
how so many fanners choose their
breeding slock. All the late birds
stunted by corn feeding while young
are saved, while those that are large
ami fine are sent to market. The idea
is that the small bird will be fully
grown, and as large as the largest by
spring. But It never is. Saving the
best birds for breeders insures earlier
laying of eggs, and an early crop of
turkeys next year.
Profits in Ithickbcrries.
Perhaps it is safe In asserting that in
proior!Ion to labor and capital Invest
ed no crop pays as large a profit as
blackberries. Growers who complain
that black Ih nics do not pay should
first estimate the expense. There are
blackberry fields that have lkirne crops
for tin years, which have never re
ceived a pound of fcrtlllwr or manure,
nnd, outside of culling awoy the old
canes, with rough cultivation in the
spring, have received no lalKir. What
blackls-iTics would do for the grower
If treated like si raw I terries Is et to be
demonstrated by some.
Stock tlint Giiiiis in Ynliic.
One of Ihe besl rules for profit able
farming Is to always keep ns much
young growing slin k as possible, and
to discard eaiiy that which been use
of age Is declining In value. Food that
makes growth Is always much more
pi-'Hlucllve than Ihat given the fully
grown animal which only requires to
be fattened. In n hog the first 100
xnitids cost less than the second hun
dred. A fier a hog gel to be 1100 weight
most of Its food goes to maintain its
present condition, nnd there Is very
little profit lo Ihe reoder.
