MAKE FARM HOMES TASTEFUL
Practical Suggestions for Beautifying
Country Residences In Any
Farming differs from every other sort
of business in this, that the farm is
not merely n factory and a place of
business, but It Is the home of the
family, writes Prof. F. A. Waugh, of
tbo Massachusetts Agricultural Col
lege, In Orange Judd Farmer. The
Importance of the farm as tho home
establishment Is much greater than
its Importnnco as n place of business;
nnd this makes it Imperative that the
place should be supplied with every
available comfort and made attractive
with every sort of beauty which sub
stantial good taste can suggest.
The ordinary schemes of landscape
gardening are not very suitable to tin'
common farm. This Is largely be
cause the ambitious landscape garden
ers do not sutllelently consider the
use of the farm ns a factory and .1
place of business. The best that can
be done In most cases Is for tbo farm
er, bis wire and other advisers, to de
velop the grounds to the best of their
own judgment nnd In the light of ic
tual requirements. A few suggestions

himself a farmer, may bo of some us
slstance In this direction.
Simplicity Is tbo keynote of good
taste In everything. Therefore, let

elaborate. Do not make the place
Have a good lawn. Nothing Is more
tasteful and satisfactory than good,
clean, green grass. Kven If the lawn
Is not very large and not eleborntely
graded, It will still be the most attsae
the part of the place. Have a few
good trees. Nothing Is moro attrac
tive about a farmhouse, with the pos
sible exception of lawn grass, than
large, dignified, noble trees.
For shrubs nnd other ornamental
plants, uso native species. The com
moil natlvo shrubs and plants are
among the best of all oranmentl ma
terials. If tlower beds aro desired, put them
at the sldo or rear of the house, pre
ferably In connection with the vege
table garden. Mower beds are usu

the back yard. Everyone will readily
remember a great many furms where
this simple Injunction is highly disre

house. Such things do not belong

so arranged that It can be used for

It Is pleaBanter to eat out of doors
than In the house; and If definite

than might !) supposed. There
should also be room in tho garden for

or sew; and If tho women of tho houso
wish to give a party on tho lnwn,
there should be every opportunity lor
Keep the placo clean nnd tidy. This
Is ilnnl evidence of good tasto and an
absolutely necessary condition In ov
Value of Manure.
Keep hauling manure out on tho
land as fast as It Is made. It Is of as
much value to put It on the plowed
ground as It Is to plow It under. Har
rowed well Into tho surface, It not only
furnishes ready plant food, but serves
as a mulch for holding molsturo In
dry weather. It may bo scattered on
corn ground to advantage all through
the coin growing season as long as
the wagon can bo hauled down the
corn rows. Cultivation will spread It
and mix it with the soil and rains will
dissolve out the richness and carry
Into the roots of the corn.

CULTURE OF THE CABBAGE.
Should Be Planted on New Ground to
Avoid Maggot Pest; How to
Although It does not follow that'
planting on new ground will secure
exemption from cabbage maggot at
tack, yet such Is the tendency, and
henco It will be well to plant or sow
this crop as far as possible from any
field Infested the previous season. The
adult Illes do not travel far under nor
mal conditions, and if they find shel
ter near their placo of hatching aro
likely to hnng around that place, and
they will accept any substitute wild
plant rather than fly to distant points
hunting for cultivated plants.
Tho farther tho plants are grown
from previously Infested areas the
moro apt they will bo to remain free
from attnek, as a rule, and yet even
in new ground, especially near a
woods or In a sheltered situation, fliey
sometimes become jnore or less infest
ed. It is probnblo that in such cases
there aro wild cruciferous plants In
tho neighborhood In which the Insects
have been breeding or sheltered in
which tho flies have hibernated, and It
further emphasizes that no matter
w hero the crop is grown a closo watch
should bo kept for tho insect, and
when onco noted active measures
should bo begun at once. Likewise,
avoid planting such crops on ground
Infested tho previous season and fol
low such Infested plots with some
other cruciferous plants.
When cabbago and cauliflower
plants nro sut out tho soil should be
tightly pressed around tho stem ol
tho plant nt the surface, and tbo soil
Itself should bo pressed down smooth,
Hat and firmly. Tho newly hatched
maggot Is feeblo, and If It falls to got
under cover promptly It Is killed by
tho sun or falls victim to some of the
prowling predatory Insects continually
on tho lookout for food. On heavy
soils this in Itself affords a largo
measure of protection, and plants on
such soils nro not so much nttacked.
On lighter sandy soils It will he less
useful, but will add to tho dllllcultles
of tho maggot in establishing himself.
Make Permanent Improvements.
Kvery farmer should nlm nt per

structural or building material equal
to concrete for plasticity, beauty and
durability. Furthermore, It Is exceed
ingly cheap, considering Its lasting
qualities. There Is no end to the use

you can, and during sparo time of late

IN AGONY WITH ECZEMA.
Whole Body a Mass of Raw, Bleeding,
Torturing Humor Hoped Death
Would End Fearful Suffering.
In Despair; Cured by Cutlcura.
"Words cannot dcscrlbo tho terrlblo
eczema I suffered with. It broko out
on my head and kept spreading until
it covered my wholo body. I
was almost a solid mass of sores from
head to foot. I looked moro llko a
pleco of raw beef than a human be
ing. Tho pain and ngony endured
scorned more than I could bear. Blood
and pus oozed from tho great soro on
my scalp, from under my finger nails,
and nenrly all over my body. My
cars woro so crusted and swollen I
was afraid they would break off.
Every hair in my bend fell out. I
could not sit down, for my clothcB
would stick to tho raw and bleeding
flesh, making mo cry out from tho
pain. My family doctor did all ho
could, but I got worso and worse. My
condition was awful. I did not think
I could llvo, and wanted death to
como and end my frightful sufferings.
"In this condition my mother-in-law
begged mo to try tho Cutlcura Rom.
cdles. I said I would, but had no hopo
of recovery. But oh, what blessed ro
lief I experienced after npplylng Cutl
cura Ointment. It cooled tho bleeding
and Itching flesh nnd brought mo tho
first real Bleop I had had in wcoks. It
was as grateful a3 ico to a burning
tongue. I would balho with warm
wator and Cutlcura Soap, then apply
tho Ointment freely. I nlso took Cutl
cura Resolvent for tho blood. In a
short tlmo tho sores stopped running,
tho llesh began to heal, and I know I
was to got well again. Then tho hair
on my head began to grow, and In a
short tlmo I was completely cured.
I wish I could tell everybody who has
cczoma to uso Cutlcura. Mrs. Win.
