Apple growers at this season of the
year are thinking about storing their
crop of winter apples and a few time
ly suggestions may not be amiss.
Root cellars come in handy this time
oi the year and if the apple grower is
without one he should take steps to
construct one. The root or cave cellar
should be located in a well drained sit
uation, and if the fruit grower is fav
ored with a hill side so much the bet
ter. We have had success in making
earth cellars, where stone and brick
were unavailable. In the following
way: Make an excavation much as
you would for the foundation of a
bouse. The depth should be not less
than four feet. Place strong posts at
the four corners and between these
posts place others three feet apart,
take rough hemlock boards a foot
wide and one inch thick and paint
them with two coats of lime, place
these next to the earth. Fasten a
2x6 plate on top of the posts and cov
er with a double roof of hemlock
boards painted with two coats of lime.
Cover the roof with earth, leaving a
place for a wooden chimney at the
center for ventilation. This chimney
should be so constructed that the
opening made by it can be closed from
within. The entrance to the cellar
should be at the north. A double
boarded door should be placed at the
direct entrance to the cellar, and a
sloping trap door at the top of the
steps. We have used such a cellar
in northern Iowa for ten years with
out having to repair it
Aside from furnishing an excellent
place for storing apples. It affords an
ideal place in which to store vege
tables of all kinds. If the cellar is
large enough, it can be partitioned off
for different crops. Fruits and vege
tables keep best when the tempera
ture of the compartment in which
they are stored is kept as near the
freezing point as possible. By venti
lating the cellar and using a thermom
eter it will be possible to obtain al
most a stable temperature in the cave
cellar. The venerable Daniel Webster was
wise, of course, but he would be seized
with frigid vibrations were he to drop
into Colorado now and see our grand
industries, like the beet sugar mills,
humming along. Webster made the
mistake of his life when he said: "I
oppose the expenditure of a single
penny by the government in the at
tempt to develop that great American
desert beyond the Mississippi."
NO LONG VACATIONS.
"You dont have to work more than
five or six months on a fruit farm,"
was a remark made to us recently by
a gentleman, evidently not experi
enced in fruit growing. The fruit
grower should have recreation in
some way as well as workers in other
lines, but there is very little oppor
tunity for long vacations. As soon
as the busy harvesting season is over
the work of preparing for the next
season should commence. There is
always some profitable thing to be
done ont of doors when the weather
permits and when it does not there Is
time to do the more of the most im
portant part of the year's work which
is thinking and planning. The fruit
grower who does not keep a diary
or memorandum book or record of
some kind in which to jot down things
to be thought of at a future time is
not making the most of his opportuni
ties, and will not be prepared witb
plans when the time comes for action.
Originally all the ostrich plumes in
use were obtained by killing the wild
birds. Thirty-fire years ago it was
found that these birds could be do
mesticated with the result that in
South Africa to-day there are 4,000,
000 tame ostriches, producing plumes
of a yearly value of 16,000.000. Within
a few years the raising of these birds
has been undertaken in California and
Arizona with much success.
THE BARNYARD FENCE.
The best fence to put around the
barnyard is one that Is high, tight and
strong enough to turn all animals.
More or less stock will come up
against this fence every day in the
year, so that it must be built much
stronger than field fences.
There is nothing better than boards
placed one against the other to a
height- of 5 or 6 feet Tnese will
turn the wind and make the yard
much warmer through the winter.
Posts should be set 3 cr 4 feet deep
and 5 feet apart Barber wire is very
objectionable, as horses are likely to
get their feet in it and be seriously
injured, while cows and other cattle
are often badly cut It is suitable
only for hogs. Woven wire is not
strong enough for a barnyard fence
and does not turn the wind.
There is just one thing that never
suited me about putting on style. Tbe
man who cannot afford it is out of
place and shows bad taste by putting
on style. When he can afford it he
has no desire to do so.
HORSES WITH WORMS.
"Worms are common among horses,
particularly those that are put to hard
work, and while not particularly dan
gerous, prevent the animal from keep
ing in good condition. Any good
worm remedy will remove the trouble
and the horse should then be given a
tonic, consisting of two tablespooafuls,
night and morning, of a mixture com
posed of four ounces each of powdered
sulphate of iron and ginger, three
ounces of powdered gentian, five
ounces of powdered nitre and two
ounces of powdered anise seed well
stirred Into two pounds of ground lax

Probably the most valuable bulletin
ever issued by the Iowa experiment
station is that on drainage. After
several seasons of water-logged fields,
its appearance is timely. The new
drainage law has just gone into effect
and the bulletin furnishes much im

two years has helped to emphasize
this subject, for it has made much
land unproductive which, in ordinary
times, is productive and has sharply
called the attention of the owners

Information which is conveyed to

from valuable data secured by the
soils department of the division of
agriculture, supplemented by exhaust

Prof. Curtiss says of the bulletin:
"This publication is of special value
to the farmer and the drainage engi
neer, and is an instructive handbook
for students and others interested in
this important line of investigation."
Iowa has vast areas susceptible of
drainage and present land values will
not permit the owners of these tracts
to let them be unremunerative.
"Drudgery is simply work in which
the body is solely engaged. (Set the
mind onto any subject, become thor
oughly interested in it, interested suf
ficiently to study how to do it in the
easiest possible way, and it ceases to
be drudgery. Any kind of work that
we do not like is drudgery; any kind
of work which docs not employ the
intellect and for which there is not a
good motive is drudgery. We can
transform drudgery into pleasant,
healthful toil by becoming interested
in it and doing It. not as time service,
but as a duty to be performed con
scientiously. Drudgery kills men.
Honest work performed with brains
and skill actually lengthens life.
Whether work is drudgery or whether
it is a pleasure depends altogether on
the spirit with which we perform it"
HOW TO PACK AND MAF
At the recent Illinois State Horti
cultural convention, C. H. Williamson
said in part: The arts of packing
and marketing apples are quite differ
ent in their scope, but yet are so re
lated that it i6 quite within bounds
to say that to pack well is half the
art of marketing. Yet to pack well is
not difficult if one has fruit that is fitt
to pack. These are a few principal
rules to be observed: Do not face
your barrel with stuff entirely out of
character with that which is to follow.
Don't make the face of your barrel a
lie. which you do when you put two
layers of fine apples on the face of
the barrel and then fill the rest of
the space with trash. Do not use
barrels of different sizes, but be sure
that the barrel contains room for
three bushels. The apples should be
alike in size and color, as much as
possible. After each basketful is put
in shake the barrel well, so the ap
ples will settle, and when they are all
In shake the barrel so well that little
pressure will be needed when the
head is put on.
Not every farmer is so situated that
be can conveniently keep bees, but a
good many who do not might just as
well have a few hives. Their work
as pollenizers is well known to fmit
men and gardeners, many of whom
have a few hives just for this pur
pose, and the honey is a very accepta
ble form of sweet, more wholesome to
most people than sugar or syrups.
Bees require some care, though not a
large amount An essential also
worth remembering in other things
than bee keeping, is to keep one's
temper. They know when they are
misused. If a man slaps at them a
few times when around the hive, he
is sure to be made sick of the bee
business before long. Bees, like Pek
in ducks, are so easily, excited that
they need no stirring up or loud talk.
NOT THE SAME.

Prof. L. H. Bailey of Cornell uni
versity is one of the highest authori
ties on horticulture. He says: "My
conclusion is, after having had the
question in mind for a decade, that a
heavy application of lead paint is the
best all-around dressing for common
pruning wounds; and this, I believe,
is the commonest opinion with careful

er himself did not care to learn bow
to operate the machine, there is al
most always some bright boy or girl
in the home who soon would. As be
tween a typewriter and an organ for
the family get the typewriter.
Cropping the orchard generally does
not pay and is poor policy besides.
The trees need all, the strength there
is in the soil, and in plowing an or
chard It is very difficult to get the
surface of the ground in proper shape.
One of the very best calves we ever
saw never even had an Introduction to
its mother and always .bawled as soon
as it heard the hum of the farm sepa
THE ORCHARD IN AUTUMN.
An Ohio correspondent says there
is much work to be done in the or
chard during the autumn months.
The fruit must be gathered and mar
keted or stored, then preparation must
be made for winter. After the fruit
has been picked, the rubbish scat
tered about should be raked up and
burned. A flock of poultry will great
ly assist in this work by destroying
eggs and borers in unsound fruit,
which 'would otherwise escape. In
this latitude (southern Ohio) fruit
trees, though hardy, are greatly bene
fited by a mulch of leaves or straw
which, if applied thickly, protects se
curely from frost. The mulch must
not come in contact with the body of
the tree, as It would afford shelter for
The drainage of orchards, particu
larly those in clay soil, should be per
fect; otherwise the ground will re
main soggy, thus increasing the dan
ger from coIJ.
. When proper care can be given, fall
planting of both fruit trees and small
fruits is to be preferred. Currants,
raspberries, strawberries and black
berries set in the fall and covered
wun coarse stable manure become
fully set by spring and make an extra
large yield of fine fruit. Strawberries
may be set at any time before freez
ing weather and covered with hay,
which should not be removed until
late spring. The plants formed next
the old plants are best.
Autumn pruning strengthens growth
and invigorates old trees, if properly
done. Cut back decaying branches,
thin out the others and the fruit will
be much larger and of fine flavor.
This is particularly true of peach
Raspberries and blackberries which
make a late growth get winter-killed
badly. All cultivation of the ground
should cease early in the fall, that
wood may ripen. And this is true also
ot all fruits and trees and shrubs of
To make the most out of dairying
an important thing is to keep only
good cows. To know beyond a rea
sonable doubt that each cow kept is
a profitable one, a careful test should
be made of each cow separately in
order to ascertain as to the quantity
and quality of the milk she produces
and if the amount is not sufficient to
show a good profit discard her as
soon as possible. One or two cows in
a herd will make a considerable dif
ference in the yield or profit, and the
only safe rule is to have each cow a
HENS IN THE ORCHARD.
There are many men who have not
quite enough land to make anything
above a bare living by raising fruit
The same trouble comes to the sur
face when contemplating a poultry
farm. In such a case as this the
proper thing to do is to combine the
two industries. An orchard is an ideal
field for poultry and a poultry yard
will make an excellent orchard. The
dropped fruit will make wholesome
food for fowls, and the insects de
stroyed by the fowls will almost in
sure the fruit against damage by in
sect pests. If a fruit grower should
ask us how to save his fruit from in
sects, we would advise him to turn a
good-sized flock of fowls into the or
chard, and if a poultry raiser should
ask how to cheaply feed a large flock,
we would say plant fruit trees every
where in the poultry range. Fruit
'and fowls form a double-header which,
will enable a man to live and learn on
a piece of ground too small to make
a living any other way.
The town possesses no "advantages"
over the country. It is an undesirable
place in which to raise a family it is
false and artificial from start to finish.
Hold to the farm, for in It is a living
and a competence a certainty which
cannot be had by any other equal In
vestment. SHEEP ON WINTER RANGE.
The location of the winter range
is naturally chosen for Its proximity
to the ranch house or to sheds or hay
stacks. Where deep snows may be
expected, the sheep must be kept near
covered corrals and a supply of hay
provided to prevent loss from starva
tion by being caught in heavy storms.
A large section of range country is
very favorably located with regard tc
the amount of snowfall. Even where
the temperature falls quite low, there
is ordinarily little snow. Although
sheep are able to maintain themselves
without much extra feed, yet there is
always a danger of heavy loss from
big storms. Some way should be pro
vided for a short period of feeding in
case of a fall of heavy, wet snow that
subsequently becomes frozen.
A backyard is sometimes uninviting,
but it is generally supposed that no
one sees It but the family. Let the
family take pride in seeing that it is
well kept and contains both grass and
flowers. Jt is no place for a bobsled,
old hoops and rubbish.
H. C. Vincent, Ohio. If the leafy
end is cut off of a pineapple, and it is
kept warm, it will continue to grow
and send up flower-stalks and produce
new pineapples. The same holds true

but in order to accomplish this suc

Unless kept at a high temperature
they may grow for years without pro
ducing any flowers. The only part
of this country where the pineapple is
grown successfully is In extreme
southern Florida. The plant will fruit
in an ordinary six-Inch flower pot, but
when grown in a favorable climate
they will require more room, as they
will be much larger in size. They
