I The aster , wo find , Is subject to more
Insect pests than nny ( lower , which wo
try to grow.
Clean gralnflelds arc almost Impossi
ble where there Is neither rotation of
crops nor sheep.
The largest and handsomest apple
grown Is the Wolf River , and It Is nt
the same time the moat worthless.
' We note that one of the reclaimed
lake beds In a western state Is afford
ing the finest kind of duck shooting
this fall.
' The easiest way to keep a good hired
girl In the farm home Is to get a good
looking hired man. We know that this
plan works.
: There Is quite a risk In holding hogs
' nt this season of the year , and Just as
.soon as they are flt for market It Is best
to let them go.
Wo sometimes think that a man's
reputation suffers almost as much to
be known as small , mean and stingy
as to be rated as dishonest.
The pansy bed has been a delight all
summer , the cool , moist season having
contributed to the very best develop
ment of this favorite flower.
' A cornfield Infected with both pocket
gophers and wild morning glories is lu
a bad fix , and the sooner such a field la
.turned into pasture the better.
ft ' The canna roots should now be taken
up and set on the floor of the cellar.
.Let them dry out , and they will be all
ready for planting next spring.
The geraniums which have bloomed
in the garden this summer may b
taken up , potted and if well cut bacV
. will afford a lot of bloom all winter.
1 A clover sod Is an Ideal preparation
for almost any sort of crop. There
should bo at least twenty acres of such
land available each year on every qua * '
ter section farm.
' If the hogs of the northwest manage
to get away with all the soft corn
there Is In the fields this year and noS
get the cholera , it will be a piece oi
.rare good fortune.
Twenty thousand Americana hav
invaded the Canadian northwest this
season and have cither bought or
homcstcadcd a vast tract of the fertile
laud of that region.
Great Britain Imports yearly nearly
$100,000,000 of butter , and Denmark
furnishes seven-tenths of it and makes
it largely out of dairy rations imported
.from America. This ought to be stopped.
The Hibernal apple Is every way as
poor as It looks to be. The most that
can bo said in Its favor is that it is BO
hardy that it will probably do fairly
.well where other apples cannot be
They say that a goose will live to be
'Seventy years old , though Just why this
bird should be so long lived it is hard
to see when the more useful hen lays
and cackles herself out inside of four
or five years.
I Where we live , while the second crop
of clover was unusually fine and full of
bloom , there is hardly any seed set , con
tinuous wet and cold weather during
the blooming season having kept the
bumblebees from working.
More money Is made from the Ben
Davis apple than from any other vari
ety. It is red for one thing , grows
large and keeps well. It holds its own
as a market apple in spite of the fact
that the quality is of the poorest
' "We came across a properly fed rape-
field the other day. It was full of
seemingly bare stalks of rape a foot or
nioro high , these covered with little
buds and shoots , tender and toothsome ,
iwhlch the hogs nipped with eagerness.
It seems queer that a man will
work hard on a farm for thirty years
to accumulate a little property and
then fall an easy victim to some shell
game fakir whom he knows nothing
-about. More men of sixty need guard
ians than have them.
i It has been demonstrated the past
season that the soil of Cuba will pro
duce the much wanted sea Island cot
ton In the greatest perfection , n staple
three and a half Inches In length being
grown. This fact makes any laud
.which . will grow this kind ot cotton
worth over $100 per acre ,
People are being compelled to study
simplicity In the matter of living
whether they wish so to live or not.
It Is getting to be Impossible to secure
the help In the homo which Is absolute
ly Indispensable to the putting on of
any stylo.
Much Is being written of the agricul
tural possibilities of Alaska , but If
farming Is ever carried on there there
will have to bo a different rule for the
hired man us to his hours of work.
From sunup to sundown would mean
about twenty-four hours up there.
There Is a good deal In the papora
about ginseng and the great profits
connected with growing this plant. It
Is , however , a very Infant Industry , oa
there uru less than twenty-five neros of
ginseng all told In this country , half of
which Is found In two counties In the
state of New York.
The Increasing use of machinery on
the farm has of course Increased the
number of accidents happening to the
men who operate It , but after all wo
have noted that more men have been
killed this year by sliding off from
loads of hay and grain on to pitchforks
than In any other way.
It Is no small thing In his favor that
the farmer never has to sell his produce
on tick or keep book accounts or dun
or sue people. He just expects and
gets the cash for all he has to sell ,
while the merchant has to charge things
and carry a line of credit which often
amounts to as much us his capital
The traveling public will have to
reckon with the automobile as n horse
scarer all over the country. These ma
chines are going to come Into general
use and before five years will bo so re
duced In price that common people
who can afford to keep a horse will
have them. The average horse Is very
much afraid of them.
The * buffalo grass and the blue Joint
grass , the two principal native grasses
of the western prairies , have never , so
far as we know , been successfully
propagated from seed upon land which
has been under cultivation. Like other
wild things , they shun civilization and
disappear with the Indian , buffalo , coy
ote and rattlesnake.
The localities where the biggest crops
of corn were raised during the late
census year , taking an average yield
for a whole county , were two counties
in Illinois , three in Indiana and one In
Pennsylvania , the average yield for
the flvo counties being over fifty-two
bushels per acre , TIpton county , Ind. ,
leading with 53.7 bushels per acre.
Best beefsteak is quoted at 4-1 cents
a pound In the city of Berlin , the same
liluxl which Is obtainable in this coun
try for 23 cents. Other meats arc also
scarce and high priced. It seems queer
that for the benefit of the few stock
raisers In that country the government
should see flt to bar out the cheap
meat products of this and other coun
Nineteen hundred and two has been
n sort of freak season. Wo have noted
more abnormal growths among fruits ,
grains and vegetables than we over did
before. Potatoes appeared in large
nodules on the vines , corn grew unusu
ally tall and set from two to four ears
on a stalk , cabbage and celery have
gone to seed the first season , while
strawberries and raspberries set a second
end crop of fruit.
A farmer friend of ours after thirty
years spent in peace and quiet on his
farm , having retired to live in town ,
thought he would take an active Inter
est In politics this fall and so came up
as a candidate for an olllce. lie tells
us that while he knew there was a
good deal of meanness In men he still
had no Idea of the depth of their total
depravity until ho got into politics. He
says he can hardly now trust his best
There are two things about which
nothing bad is ever said the brome
grass and alfalfa. The former Is of al
most inestimable value to all that
large territory where timothy and the
clovers will not do well for lack of suf
ficient moisture , while alfalfa Is prov
ing the redeemer of a principality of
heretofore worthless lands In the west.
No fact la better proved than this
where grass can be made to grow
there will follow all other good things
in an agricultural way.
One of the best farm tenants wo
have como across Is a1 Swede with a
large family. He has worked the same
farm for thirteen years and has al
ways made money for his landlord and
for himself , while the farm Is In a
more productive state than ever be
fore. This landlord Is wise enough to
treat his tenant liberally , furnishing
him good stock and seed and such a
share of the crop and farm income that
his tenant can prosper. The dairy and
chickens kept on this place alone con
stitute a pretty good income.
The government can sometimes in
terfere with the common business of
the people to their great advantage. In
Franco the government assumes to reg
ulate the breeding of the horse , and
none save sires registered by the gov
ernment is used. The result la that
all the world goes to Franco for Its
fine draft sires. The Danish govern
ment takes a hand In the creamery
business of that country and by com
pelling the scientific education of the
dairymen and butter makera and In
spection of the product monopolizes the
English market To some extent Amer
ican enterprise la accomplishing here
what legal and governmental Interfer
ence la accomplishing there , but as yet
not In nearly so cfllcicnt a manner.
Ten yours ago ho wan n common In-
borer living In a Hinall wostoru town.
Ho had a wife and four children , and ,
us hln labor WUH of the unskilled rL
ho rarely rocolvod moro than $ l.f > ( ) per
day. Deducting his lout time , his iivor-
age earnings were not over $100 per
year. It la ousy to BOO that with nurh
a Hinall Income he would have but little
loft after tmroly supporting himself
and family. He had the honorable am
bition to do Homothlng bettor ; but , beIng -
Ing without capital to make a Htart , It
seemed to be n hopoloas cam * . Finally
ho hit on thla plan : Ho rented flvo
acrea of good land near his home at $ il
per aero. Ho hired a man to plow and
drag It , then ho planted one aero of
onions , one acre of cabbage , unu IUTO
of potatoes , one aero of popcorn , half
an aero of turnips and half an aero of
melons and cucumhors. Ankle from
what ho paid out to have some horse
cultivation of the crop ho , wltli. his
wlfo and children , took care of those
crops. Now hero la the result : Thm >
hundred bushels of onions at TO cents ,
$210 ; cabbage crop , ifSO ; potatoes , $ r > 0 ;
popcorn , ? l.r > ; turnips , $20 ; melons and
cucumbers , $00 ; a total of $105 , or as
much , deducting what he paid out foi
rout and help , as ho had over earned In
a year when working for others by
the day. In addition he had all his
family wanted to use of the crops
grown , and the entire crop was grown
and disposed of Inside of flvo months ,
leaving him seven months to work out
as ho had always done. Of course ho
could have done bettor If ho had had
his own loam and tools. The case Is
cited Just to show what a man can do
who has absolutely nothing but his
hands to work with. It proved a get
ting out of the woods , a stop In ad
vance for him , ' and others may do the
same thing , perhaps not quite so well ,
perhaps hotter.
Willie crop losses wore severe and
almost total In valley locations during
the past ittiinmor by reason of the un
usual floods all through the west and
northwest territory , the compensations
of a wet season are not to bo over
looked. Throughout all the region no
drenched flvo previous years of short
rainfall ruined the water powers , mode
brooks of the rivers , dried up the
springs , exhausted the subsoil mois
ture , converted lake beds Into corn-
Uolds , killed the trees both In grove
and orchard and ruined the pastures.
The downfall of thirty-six Inches of
water and in many localities much
more during the months of May , Juno ,
July and August has wrought out a
marvelous transformation. The rivers
are once more bunk full , every spring
n-spoutlng , the earth saturated to a
depth of ten foot or more , the lake bed
cornfield Is converted Into n lake once
more , all tree life has made a phenom
enal growth , and pastures have been
knee deep , us in Juno , all summer. It
is all In line with nature'sway } of bal
ancing things up , and all will feel bet
tor to think on the blessings brought
by the rains rather than on the losses
they may have entailed.
We have growing on the lawn a
Wealthy apple tree which Is very at
tractive and symmetrical in appear
ance , and , looking ut it , wo arc im
pressed with the fact that we might of
ten sot out valuable fruit trees for or
nament and shade in place of the other
kinds which boar no fruit. There is no
handsomer lawn tree than the cherry
if properly cared for , with Its thick and
glossy follago , profuse bloom and rare
red fruit. Wo lately passed by the
town residence of a man who had set
a row of r.pple trees In front of his
home outside the sidewalk , and they
were producing lots of nice apples for
him and the public as well. Where util
ity can bo practically combined with
beauty it should always bo done.
Wherever u piece of graded highway
on the black prairie soils of the coun
try has been graveled a very practical
object lesson has been given of the
value of this method of making a good
road out of a dirt road. We think that
two applications of the gravel are
much better for the road than where
the whole amount la put on at once ,
the flrst coat of four inches to be al
lowed to Incorporate with the muck
soil and form a good foundation for a
later coat of about four or six Inches
more gravel. Thus built , supposing the
roadbed is properly drained , such a
road will last indefinitely , with only a
scant repairing from year to year.
The new kind of binding twine made
from the wire grass of the northern
peat boga Is giving excellent satisfac
tion , the grain raisers of the Dakotas
preferring It to twine made of sisal or
nmnllu , while It Is much cheaper In
price. - Thus are the most seemingly
worthless lands of the territory named
made to become of great value. We
once owned a farm upon which there
was one of these wire grass peat boga
and often used to wonder what on
earth It could ever be used for. Wo
have found out.
The man who lives and works In
town has to buy hay , corn , oats , poul
try , eggs , milk , cream , butter , meat ,
vegetables , fruits , flour , meal , fuel and
a host of other things which enter Into
the dally living of n family , while a
man on a farm can produce all these
things named and have them of the
very best The town mun flnda that a
salary looks like 30 cents when he baa
bought all these necessaries of llvlug.
Rapid Progress Made Toward
Resumption of Mining ; ,
Owing to Dad Condition of Machinery
There Is Some Delay In Starting
Breakers Some Fall to Get DacU
Their Old Places.
WIIkoHlmrro. Pa. , Oct. 23. Hapld
progress Is being made by all the coal
companies In the anthracite region to
ward a general resumption of conl
minim ; . The Hiisponslnn olllelally
oniloil at 7 o'clock thla morning , but
the quantity of coal that will ho mined
thla week will not be grout. It la not
hollovod 25 per cent of the normal
production will ho reached until some
tlmo next week. There are a number
of mines that will not bo In condition
for operation for several montliH and
there aru others that will not bo r udy
> for the nion under two or three wookn.
In a great number of colllorlos there
will have to ho much timbering denote
to prevent "BquoozoB. " The nearly
nix months' . Idleness Imn In many In-
HtunccB rusted breaker machinery ,
which may CIUIBO sumo delay In atari-
Ing. Notwithstanding the many draw
backs , however , the company olllelula
are confident that there will ho plenty
of coal for distribution before real
cold weather seta In.
Thousands of men of cvory claaa
made application for work. There
wore many disappointments , however ,
principally among the engineers and
pumpmen. They want tholr old posi
tions back , and In many casca they
It Is the opinion of the workers that
the superintendents will find a way
to re-employ all of thorn. The union
men say the companies will got rid
of all Incompetent men hired during
the suspension , because when the col-
llorlos begin working full tlmo , the
nonunion men will not ho ahlo to fill
tholr places properly
One of the developments of the day
was the great number of mon who
have been employed throughout the
fltrlko who loft tholr plaros and re
turned to tholr homes. Hundreds worn
paid off by the several coal companies
In thla valley and the same la true of
the other regions. Among thoao wcro
clerks who will return to the ofllcca of
the real companies ; men who were
employed In other occupations and
wcro thrown out of work on account
of the strike ; mon who were strikers ,
but went back to work , and some coal
and Iron policemen. It Is expected
more of those men will null work In
the course of the next few days. They
are disliked by the unionists and It
is probable the relations between them
will not be Improved once they get
working aldo by side In the mines.
Celebrations In honor of the ending
of the strike were continued In many
towns of the Wyoming valley.
President Mitchell Is now engaged
in preparing the minors' side of Clio
case for presentation to the arbitra
tion commission. He will appear be
fore the tribunal and will have with
him a number of assistants. Mr.
Mitchell had nothing to say regarding
the situation , hut it Is evident from
his manner that ho Is quite satisfies
with the progress of ovonts.
The troops In this region have not
yet received orders to leave for home
and none la expected now until after
the collieries are well started. There
has boon no trouble In this region be
yond a few fights , the result of pay-day
among nonunion men.
Nonunion Miners Badly Beaten.
Scranton , Pa. , Oct. 23. Three Ital
ians who have been working at the
Ijpdge washcry of the Lackawanna
company during the strike wcro set
upon by a mob who were returning
from work last night and given a bed
beating. Two of them were rescued
by the city police and taken to the
hospital. Joseph Braun got away
from -the crowd before the police ar
rived and ran to Bellovue. Four men
set upon him again and after beating
him Into Insensibility threw him over
a fence Into the yard of a dwelling ,
where he was found In a pool of blood
His Injuries , while serious , will not
provo fatal.
Men Must Slrjn Contract.
Shenandoah , Pa. , Oct. 23. The men
who reported for work at the Vulcan
colliery were told that they would
have to report at the company's store
and sign a contract before being rein
stated. A few of them signed the pa
per as requested , but many of them
refused to sign and returned homo. Su
perintendent Jones said : "Wo simply
ask the men to sign an agreement to
the effect that they will not Interfere
In any way with nonunion mea or with
the men now at work. "
Glass Workers Strike.
Washington , Pa. , Oct. 23. Nearly
3,000 men employed at the two plants
of the Hazel and Atlas Olass compa
nies went out on a strike last evening
ns a result of the refusal of the offi
cials to recognize the glass workers'
union. The plants were closed.
