Will make every mother well, f-trorj(r,

Tlie Fin Coulttrr.
The cut herewith illmiirate a style
of plow coulter which is often i;R0d in
the West. It is made from hiijli trade
crucible Kteel jibout thri-e-eihths of an
Inch thick, and cuts tliroucu the fcoil
eani!y. There are certain condition-!
under which the rolling coulter will
not work well, and then the tin coulter
can often lw used to good advantage.
Vear ago the land side of the fliare
wan always dovetailed and the cutter
set in level, hut later manufacturers
and blacksmiths have tdmply riveted
or Ixilted the Kteel to the tdiare without
dovetailing. Tills is cheaper than dove
tailing, but the latter method causes
the plow to run belter than when the
cutter is Ik. lied to the side. The tin
cutter Is always slanted well back and
is rounded liack at the top. When
made in this form, wear does not so
simhi Impair its usefulness as if the
edge were made straight like a cutler
which is cast on the share. A fin cut
ter made with a straight-cutting edge
and rounded forward at the top would
soon we;ir so that grass, roots, trash,
etc., would not readily pass upward
and off at top of couller. A few years
ago I bought a plow with tin attach
ment, the cutter having been put on by
the manufacturers. It was such a
clumsy affair that I would have done
much better to have bought the plow
and had tiie smith put 1 lie cutter on,
for It was over one-quarter thick and
stood forward at top so much that It
would not work at all until It whs re
modeled. There was one nice feature
iilxnit this cutter. In that it was bolted
on with stove bolts, so It could be taken
off and put on nguin, as conditions re
quired. Ceo. T. I'ettlt, in Kt. Louis
Co-Opcratve Milk Selling.
The Sprlnglleld (Mass.) Co-operative
Milk Association Is regarded as some
thing of a model of Its kind. The as
sociation received during the year A.-2n;.r-l
quarts of milk nnd paid the
farmers $123,297.77 for their product
This lacks a sinnll f ruction of being
three cents a quin t for the year round
paid for the milk furnished.' The vol
ume of business done during the year
was not far from $;iiK.Vs1. A report
was made on the creamery established
by the association In Washington
County, N. Y.. from which It now
receives its supply of cream and but
ter. In eight months the product
amounted to one hundred thousand
pounds of butter. The association re
ceived 570.1 x ) quarts more of milk this
year than last, and paid the fanners
about flW) more than last year. The
farmers were paid on the whole prod
uct about one-sixteenth of a cent more
per quart limn the preceding year.

A Kansas correspondent has n
weedy farm, wishes to try sheep, nnd
wants to know what breed Is best
to start with in n section where but
few sheep are grown nnd the surplus
would have to be sold to the local
We would get ns good a type of mut
ton sheep as we could conveniently
without Inquiring particularly ns to
the breed. We would not take Meri
nos, however, unless they were pretty
well graded up with some of the mut
ton breeds of which the Shropshire Is
the most generally known and a very
popular breed. We would not get
more than twenty-five or fifty to start
with and would use a buck of the mut
ton breeds that we could get most con
veniently; Shropshire, Southdown,
Hampshire or Oxford. If the butchers
do not give enough we would kill the
surplus an.1 sell thcra to the neighbors.
Where a man has weedy pastures or
weedy lands, any kind of sheep will
pay even if he has to sell the surplus

Cattle and Meat Inspection.
The departmental report of the
liureau of Animal Industry from
which Secretary Wilson prepnrcd that
part of his annual report relating to
live-stock matters will show an In
crease In the number of government
meat Inspection depots from nine in
1S!I1 to "! in 1003. During this year
i 1.000,000 live cattle were Inspected by
the bureau agents, 14,fl00,000 sheep, 1,
010,000 calves, 31.500,000 hogs nnd a
few horses. Of these animals about
125,000 were rejected, subject to the
result of post mortem examination.
The post mortem Inspections for the
year show practically the same figures,
n total of 37,251.('i20 carcasses, of
which 78,472 carcasses were condemn
ed and 64.4S0 parts of carcasses con
demned. The figures show 844 horses
slaughtered for food purposes.

Macaroni wheat is a drought reslster,

This grain sown by Itself, or with oats,

Tetinjf lie Seed Corn.
The !i!i,',;s Aiiricvitnral t'oiirge r.a
thurifies are urging the iii'.portatire or
testing wed corn, and have found ii
their tests samples from farmer rang
ing in vitality from tl'i to i7 per cent
The importance of testing seed con
cannot le too strongly tirgi-d. The fol
lowing is an extract from a idler re
ceived from I'rofessor A. U'. Hume
of the Illinois College on this subject
''If. as seems probable, we are com
pelled to select wed corn for nex;
spring from a crib having a large icr
eetitage of frosted ear or of can
which for various reasons will no
grow, the question is what can Is
done to help Insure our stand of con
for the coming year? It will hardly
do to plant seed on valuable land will
a certainty that one-fifth will no
grow. The best suggestion the write
has to offer to corn growers is thai
they make a most careful inspection o!
corn, which they exjiect to use fit
wed, whether it l purchased Irom re
liable growers or selected from thei:
own storehouses. We believe it woull
Im possible for every ear of corn plant
od in Illinois to be tested for vitality
If nn ear docs not come to the reqiiiret
standard. It may be possible to discarV
it, thus reducing the amount of seef
which will not grow and material!
Increasing the stand of our corn croj
the coming year."
Kelectink! a Good Layer.
An. old country poultryman makei
the following suggestions as a help it
selecting gissl layers: "There are cer
tain Individual characteristics, one o:
which Is the shape of a bird. If I
straight line be drawn from the bad
of the head to the toes, the hell whicl
is likely to be a good layer will usual
ly have the hinder half of her bodj
largest, whilst a hen which may hi
suspected of being a poor layer wil
show more in the front; the rensoi
being that a poor layer makes a bet
for table bird, and has a larger, longci
breast, whilst a good layer makes I
poor table bird, and has a compara
tively small breast, whilst the egg or
gans are more fully developed. Hirdf
which are good layers are usually Terj
active. They always look healthy, and
in most cases their combs are tisuallj
fully developed, particularly if thej
belong to the long-combed varieties
which are reputed to be the best lay
era. A hen with a long comb iniij
usually tie regarded us a good layer
and if she Is not there must be som
special reason for the contrary."
A. .1. Hatan, of Treeslmnk, Man,
writes the Nor'-West Farmer inclosing
a sketch of a five-horse equalizer. He
Rays: "I have had considerable expe
rience In breaking up grub land and
have found that the very best result'
come from a good strong fourteen-lneli
grub plow. Two men, an nx, brush
scythe and five horses comprise the
best outfit that can be obtained for any
field. In order to equalize the com
bined strength of the horses an evener
Is made on the plan shown in the il
lustration. A piece of timber .'x5 and
fifteen Inches long is selected. An
inch hole Is bored three-lifths of the
d:stance from the end for (he clevis
which attaches the timber to the plow
ring. A three-horse attachment is
fastened to the short end. a chain Is at
tached to the long end of the piece of
timber running between the two off
side horses through their neckyokc
ring and attached to a double-trei
clevis for the lend team."
L'se for Cottonseed Hulls.
Paper from cottonseed hulls is tht
latest utilization of a waste product
A factor- has been established at
Niagara I-'alls. It Is said that a gooi
quality of paper can be made from
iuis material. The diminishing sup
ply of wood nnd other materials fot
paper stock has caused n search fot
substitutes. If the utilization of cot
tonseed hulls in this way proves a suc
cess, It will mean a new Industry for
the South. Now that the mills hav
found an honest use for hulls, it is
hoped they will keep the stuff out ol
the meal which they send North.
