CURED ITCHING HUMOR.

"Llttlo black swellings wore scat
tered over my face and neck and they
would lcavo littlo black scars that
would Itch so I couldn't keep from
scratching them. Larger swellings
would appear and my clothes would
stick to tho sores. 1 wont to a doctor,
but tho troubles only got worse. By
this tlmo It was all over my arms nnd
tho upper part of my body In swellings
as lnrge as a dollar. It was so pain
ful that I could not bear to He on my
back. Tho second doctor stopped tho
swellings, but when they broko tho
places would not heal. I bought a set
of the Cutlcura Remedies and In less
than a week some of tho places wore
nearly well. I continued until I had
used thrco sots, and now I am sound
and well. Tho disease lasted three

Silk Stockings Indispensable.
Susan D. Anthony was a woman of
simple taste in dress, but hnr close
friends knew of one pretty feminine
vanity eIio always held to. She had J
a weakness for silk stockings. Heing
pressed on one occasion for an ex
planation of what most women at one
time regnrded as an unnecessary ex
tra vagance, she laughingly exclaimed:
"Oh, I Just love 'em. They are an
Inspiration. If I have my silk stock
ings on when I rise to make an ad
dress, I feel just like 1 am walking
among tho clouds. They help mo to
soar away on Mights of eloquence. I
wouldn't bo without them."

LABOR SAVING FROM GRANARY
Such a Oullding Can De Made, at
Moderate Cost, Grain Storage and
The accompanying drawings partly
outline n building recently planned
by the writer nnd now being erected
in western Minnesota, writes V. ,.
Marsh In Kami, Stock and Home. It
A Handy Grannry.
Is small, but contains many things
which save labor on the farm, and the
capacity Is very fully utilized. It is
hardly possible to get as much saving
of lnhor and time out of tiny other
structure of the size as the one de
voted to the purposes for which this
will be used.
A basement half the size of the
building has cement floor and Is made
warm. In this is an air pressure wa
ter supply tank filled from a well Just
outsldo tho building. This cariles suf
ficient predsuro to throw water over
any farm building. Water Hows from
the tank to tho house, barn, yards,
etc. All Is made frost proof.
A bucket elevator runs to bottom of
bnsement. This tnkeu grain from tho
wagon and places it in any bin in tho
building. Grain Hows to It from all
bins, nnd can thus be stored, aired If
damp, mixed, cleuned, sacked or
ground without hand lifting, spouts
connecting all parts.
The second story Is used for grain
storage and has a convenient stair
way and good lighting nnd ventila
tion. More grain can bo stored than
with the common arrangement.
In tho first story Is a room for
cleaning and grinding grain, shelling
corn, etc. This has a wood floor. Tho
engine room hns space for gasoline
engine nnd nny machinery likely to
cause dirt or dampness. Cream sepa
rator room Is plastered and finished
with as llttlo woodwork as possible.
Tho floors of theso two rooms aro of
cement nnd are pitched so they can
bo washed with a hose. A chimney
Two lines of shafting carry pulleys
for driving elevator, grinder, com
filioller, fanning mill, cream separator,
chum, pump, grindstone, emery wheel,
washing mnchlno, etc., nnd power can
be conveyed to other buildings. Thero
is room In the basement for a second
tnnk for a soft water supply, tank to
bo filled from a cistern. Such a build
ing can bo made, nt moderate cost, a
complete grain storage, water supply
unci power plnnt for tho farm.
Utilize All the Ground.
Thero is enough land on tho farms
of this country that is not pioductlvo
beeniiBO It has not been properly
drained to causo serious considera
tion. Going about the country at any
tlmo during tho year ono sees on al
most every farm low, wet spots that
in ordinary years do not produco any
thing because they aro too wet to
plant anything In tho spring. Such
spots aro nlniost without exception
the most fertile spots on tho farm
when drained. It is not uncommon to
find two or thrco ncres of such land
on tho farm so situated that it would
not cost moro thnu tho valuo of two
or throo crops to put in good condi
tion to produco lnrge crops. Tho time
will como when unproductive acres on
a farm will bo a disgrace to tho own
er, but In the west It seems Just now
to bo a long way off.
Binding Corn Fodder.
Many farmers have a handy dovice
for binding corn fodder nB It is husked
from tho shock in tho field. It con
sists of a small wooden rack for hold
ing tho fodder and a hand lover for
pressing it down for tying, a good
armful of fodder Is plnced in this
rack, tho lover pressed down and
caught and tho bundle tied with bind
ing twine. These bundles, with nil
oars of corn removed, aro light and
easy to handle. Thoy may bo placed
in tho haymow or othor sholter and
will koep perfectly for many months

BENEFITS OF FALL PLOWING
When Done Before Snow Falls Land
Freer from Injurious Insects
'lt It u lttisiihiK )
As much plowing us possible should
bo done In the fall The soil thus
tinned up Is exposed to the frosts of
winter nnd they penetrate It to n con
siderable depth. Soils that are cov
ered with sod arc not penetrated
more tlinn hair us deep by the frosts
us are those soils that are recently
plowed In the tall.
It Is desirable to loosen tho earth
below the depth to which the plow
goes. This Is especially valuable in
clay soils. When ground Is plowed
well before the coming of frost the
toll will often he frozen to the depth
of HO Inches. TIiIh menus that every
piullele to that depth Is moved to a
certain extent. The expansion of the
particles of moisture pushes apart and
bleaks up the most retentive soils.
Clay still that has been well
drained Is in this way iniide more fri
able to a great depth and when spring
comes and the treat goes out of the
soil It will be so loose that air can
penetrate to a great depth and chem
ical action be better.
The manures in the surface soli aro
disintegrated and some of them aro
washed down to the depth the frost
The result following Is that tho
roots of the plants seek the coo),
moist earth below If there bo In It
plenty of plant food and tho plants
supported by the roots are the moro
able to resist many droughts that
may come in summer.
When- droughts are common it Is
desirable to have plant roots go ns
deeply as possible.
Fall-plowed land .will also be found
freer from cutworms and other Inju
rious insects in the spring. Some of
these Insects try to get below tho
fiost line or nt least to a point where
freezing and thawing In the early
spring is not possible. The plowing
or the land turns up these insects,
and. though they may he still covered
by the soil, leaves the ground so loose
about them that they freeze and In
this way they are killed.
While fall plowing does not entirely
wipe out all the cutworms that may
he In tho ground, It will greatly les
sen their number.
This point alone is enough to Jus
tify the plowing of laud lu the full.
