I' J Many ladies have used our machines
twenty to thirty years in theirfamily work,
end are still using the original machines
we furnished them a generation ago.
Many of our machines have run more
than twenty years without repairs, other
than needles. With proper care tlicy
never wear out, and seldom need repair.
We have built sewing machines for
more than forty years and nave constantly
improved them. We build our machines
en honor, and they arc recognized every
where ns the most accurately fitted and
finely finished sewing machines in the
world. Our latest, the "No. 9," is the
result of our long experience. In com
petition with the leading machines of the
world, it received the Grand Prize at the
Paris Exposition of 1889, as the best,
other machines receiving only compli
mentary medals of gold, silver and bronze.
The Grand I'rize was what all sought for,
and our machine was awarded it.

Chief Fonrow, forestry division of
the national agricultural department
in tho 1S94 annual report concludes
that trea growth takes up only water
nd a email amount of minerals
through the roots, whilo tho great
bulk of tho solid parts of tho tree
growth cemes from tho atmosphere.
This is a very rcraarkablo concession
for an orthodox soiontist to make
His estimate is that out of 6,000
pounds of green wood tlicro is only
15 to 20 pound! of mineral subetanees
that eome to tho plant through its
roots from the soil, whilo 1,000 pounds
of carbon comes from tho air through
tho leaves, and in combination with
tho 15 or 2Q pounds of minerals
makes up all the solid parts of tho
woed, the other 5,000 pounds being
"water. I dony that these minerals
oemo from the soil. If 1,000 pounds
of earbon couicb from the air, the 20
pounds of minerals oan oomo tho
sanio road. Fenraw says that those
minerals consist of lime, potash, mag
neiiaand nitrogea, and that thoy go
up tho troe to meet the earbon at tho
leaves, where the carbon and minerals
oembino to form starch and sugar,
the latter being plant food. Prof,
Fenrow fiaally says: "Tho exaol
manner in which this moyomont of
water upward and food material!
downward takes placo and tho forces
at work aro net yet fully understood
nor is there absolute eertaioty as to
the parts of tho treo in which tho
movomoat takes place." That ex
plains it. Theso scientists aro ex
actly where tho old astronomers wero
when thoy considered the earth to
be tho oenter of the universe and sta
tionary. Thoy cannot explain. No
substanco oan pass through tho bark
of treo roots. This is impervious to
water, and oven the oloctrio currents,
after passing down the tree, are

they, oven, oan puss through the root's
bark into the earth. Tho rining of
sap ifia troe is merely the filling up
of the pores with watr mixed with
plant food, which all comes into the
treo from tho top. Tho water cannot
pss out at tho roots, nnd therefore
tho sup rises, just n? wator rises in a
jug whon you pour the water in 11 1
tho top. Theso orthddoz gcutlcmsn
are making an orderly retront and
they would certainly gain time by
giviag up tho old dark ape?, idea that
plant food comes from the soil. If
thoy would nt onco acknowledge tho
error of thoir old superstition, agri
culture, forestry, horticulture nnd
gardening would mako a rapid and
A paragraph recently run through
the nowspapcru in which it was stated
that two full mooni occurred in De
cember, 181)5, and that a liko event
had not been witnessed sinoc the
time of Christ. This shows how lit
tle newspaper mon know about one of
tho most common occurrences, and
the blunder aught to cause them to
hesitate when thoy oomo to diseus
the changes ef tho moon, wcatlnr
ohangps, weather events, forcoa-tn,
etc. Thu f.iet is that two full nnd
two new moons, tW0( first qaartcrs and
two last quarters occur at intervals of
about thirty months. Using astro
nouiicr.. time, which begins at neon,
two full moons occurred in July, 1871;
January, 187-1; Novcmbor, 187C;
August, 1879; Juno, 1S82; Docoai
bcr, 1884; October, 1887; July, 1890;
January, 18911, and Dcocmbcr, 1895.
Tho two full moons and two of any
other phases of tho moon, occur in
tho same month at intervals of eigh
teen years, and also with nearly tho
same regularity intervals of niue
years. If wo uio oivil time, begin
ning at midnight, tharo aro just as
many such cases and at the saruo in
tervals, but not always in the sanio
Is it a lack of plant food or a lack
of aaoisturo in tho soil that causcB
farm lands to weur out or beoomo
poor after producing corn, or wheat,
or oats for a numbor of years ? Tho
practical farmer and the thooretioal
farmer aro agreed that it is a lack of
plait food, and they are radically
wrong. The Bail docs not Iobo plant
.food, but loses tho conditions that
enablo it to hold moisture Restore
theso conditions by undortow irriga
tion and tho soil will bo as rich as
ever. So long as deep-rooted grasses
aro kopt growing on tho soil it never
wears out, because the dooay of theso
grass roots leaves open holes or poros
in tho soil that let in the water.
Corn, oats and wheat are shallow
rooted, and where they are repeatidly
grown, tho subsoil becomos paoked
and impervious to water. Clovor,
particularly alfalfa, has very deep
roots, aud for that reason rapidly re
stores fertility to land. Tho farmer's
theory is that tho olovcr rcstoros lost
plant food in tho Boil. Nonsense.
How could olover restore plant food
withont obtaining it from tho atmos
phere ? If clover thus obtains plant
food, then all other vegetation works
on tho same plan, and wo must come
to that wbioh will inerease the
power of tho plant to draw from tho
atmosphcro, A good conductor for

I havo looatod myself in a vory good

and everything grows well. ' Apples

all ho can load on a wagon diawn by

flour, tho best brands, $2; best ap
ples, 50c; eggs and butter, 15c; so
a man can live hero reasonably cheap.
Wo havo had plenty of rain and some
to spare iu this year, 1995; the only
thing I am tirod of is mud and bad
