We are aware of the fact that a
srreat many or our reauers ruu ""l
little about the value of our agricul
tural schools and colleges. Some oi
those who know about them in a gen
eral way do not take the interest in
them that they ought to. A third
class believe that there is nothing that
can be taught about agriculture wnicn
is of any practical value to their boys
and girl's, even though they expect to
remain on the farm and make farming
and farm homes their life's work, lo
all these three classes of people we

There are many excellent agricul
tural schools, and some that are not
so good. We shail not reter to any m
particular, but speak of what they
teach in a general way Those that
we are best acquainted with are those
in the Northwest, some in the East
and some in the South. They are all
crowded, so much so that many ot
them have to refuse admittance to
quite a number each year, just be
cause they have not facilities enouga
to accommodate all. That fact shows
that the schools are appreciated by a
great many farmers already We are
urging agricultural schools, not be
cause those in existence need stu
dents, but because we want to see
more schools started. The more ap
plications our present schools get the
more schools must be erected. People
often take things as matters of fact
in this world. We have good common
school systems in nearly all localities,
we have good high schools, and the
latter articulate with the former; this
is all well and good. We would not
urge less high schools, we need them
all. They are well adapted to the
needs of the city and town children,
but not so well adapted to the farmers
as a class. The object of schools
should be to develop the child men

fit him better for life's work, if
schools do not tit our children to bet-

lems of life, they, to say the least.

PROFIT OF THE DAIRY COW.
Very few farmers realize the income
that can be had from a good cow. The
farmer who keeps a cow a year to
raise a fifteen or twenty-dollar calf
usually thinks he has done as well as
any one, but his profits do not com-tu-d

the most valuable product of the cow.

THE FALL MULCH.
While the spring and summer mulch
in the orchard is of great value, and
is attended to by our best orchardists.
still a fall mulch of trees, shrubs and
bulbous plants should be done earlier
in the fall than is often the case.
Just as soon as the trees have shed
their leaves and the hardy and semi
hardy herbaceous plants have died
down is the time to winter mulch
them, before all of the moisture has
IefT the ground. One of the best
times to apply this mulch is just after
a rain, when the ground is well filled
with moisture. The object of doing it
at this time is that th plant will re
ceive the benefit of the rains and
scarcely any moisture would be evap
orated by the drying winds that come
in the fall. All of the moisture, eith
er from the rain or the snow falling
on the mulch would penetrate through
and benedt the tree plant or shrub.
There is one exception in the mat
ter of mulching plants, however, and
that is in mulching strawberries.
These plants should not be mulched
until the ground is frozen, as straw
berries grow late into the autumn.
One of the best winter mulches that
we have to-day in our orchards are
the cover crops. It is not too late
now to start in some sections of our
state, cover crops in the orchard,
which will serve as a mulch through
the winter Winter rye can be sown
now and under ordinary conditions
will make a large enough growth by
the time winter sets in to serve as a
mulch. Especially is this practice im
portant in young, growinir orchards.
Many sections of the country have
suffered very much from excessive
rainfall during the past season. In
many localities the loss would have
been much less had due attention
been given to drainins low places. The
fail is a good time to do this work.
Where those who own land are not
prepared to make under-drains. a
great deal can be accomplished by
opening surface drains with the spad.

Writing to his paper about manure

one man with a cood team and spread

and do it easier than can three or
four men. each with common wagons
out of which they have to spread the
manure "the old way." We regard
this as being about the wildest state

We have great admiration for the
farm wife who can cut wood, slop
the hogs, milk the cows, carry the
water, harness the horses and do the
churning in case of emergency, such
as sickness or unavoidable absence

will permit his wife to habitually do
such menial labor while he toasts his

Every man locating in a country
where the average rainfall does not
exceed fifteen inches should make a
study of what is known as the Camp
bell system of cultivating the land.
This is a method of so preparing and
handling the soil that the moisture is
conserved and retained in the soil for
the development of the crop. Most re
markable results have been obtained
by the use of this method in Kansas
and Nebraska, and as it is purely a
question of the mechanical manipula
tion of the soil, it may be practiced by
THE LAND'S SHARE.
The farmer should realize that he is
in partnership with his land. It is
true that the fields are silent and
long suffering and do not intrude their
rights in a loud voice, but when the
balances are to be struck the farmer
who has been so unwise as to have
ignored the rights of his acres finds '
that while they have borne their heavy
burden patiently and without com
plaining, they have asserted their
rights at last. The careless farmer
may see the results without under
standing or even seeking for causes

"Convince the farmer that the
cheapest method of securing nitrogen
is by growing legumes. In many
cases clover is the most satisfactory.
Seeding an acre of clover will cost
not to exceed 1. and this will result
in the adding of 100 pounds of nitro
gen to the acre. This nitrogen has
a commercial value of 15 cents pei

getting a fortune by the very act oi

fact that a fanner can sow clover seed
in his oats for II an acre, sometimes
75 cents, and occasionally only 50
cents, ought to convince any one fa

that it is a profitable practice. It is

THREE APPLE TREE BORERS.
A correspondent writes that some
kind of a borer is working on his or
chard, and asks what to do to destroy
it. I have just been out looking over
my own orchard and find that the
borers are doing some damage. My
remedy is to use a sharp knife and a
Iender wire; cutting the borers out
low down and banking up with earth,
using the wire to follow their burrow
ings. According to Prof. Chittenden, the
three larger apple tree borers are:
1 The round-headed borer. Saperda
Candida. 2 The spotted borer, Sa
perda cretata. 3 The flat-headed bor
er. Chrysobothris femorata.
The methods of controlling the
round-headed apple tree borer are to
practice clean culture, cut the larvae
out of the tree, kill them by applying
kerosene wherever their castings are
seen protruding through the bark, or
prevent their entrance by means of
impenetrable substances, such as pa
per and hydraulic cement, or by re
pellant washes made from fish oil or
soft soap, with the addition of caustic
potash or washing soda carbolated
with carbolic acid.
The remedies are the same for the
spotted and flat-headed apple tree
borers as for the round-headed borers,
except that for the flat-headed borei
the coverings and washes should be
applied farther up the tree trunk and
branches, and that trap-wood may be
used It is suggested that limbs anu
trunks of newly felled trees which th
borers attack, such as oak. maple and
ycuns fruit trees, be distributed on the
outskirts of the orchard, where they
should be freely exposed to the sun.
so that the beetles will deposit their
eggs on them. This trap-wood 3houid
then be destroyed before the beetles
emerge the following spring.
I have often wondered where all the
flies came from. They are here and
they are pronounced a common nui
sance. An entomologist tells us that
the horse manure which accumulates
about the stable is the breeding
grounds for them, and that an indus
trious fly will lay two hundred eggs
in less than a cubic Inch of horse
manure. As it takes about one-third
of a day for them to hatch, it is plain
to be seen where they come from.
MAKE THE FARM ATTRACTIVE.
It is all very well to talk about the
nobility of agriculture and the joys
and freedom of farm life, but tie
thing that drives boys and girls away
from the farm is the very lack of the
nobility and of joy on the average
farm. No boy nor girl, either, is go
ing to admit that farm life is fall of
pleasures and attractions so long as
the farm home is simply a roof to
cover their heads. It is too often the
case that the entire family on a farm
spend the indoor portion of their lives
in the kitchen except during the hours .
of sleep. Too often the only reading
room in the farmhouse is the kitchen,
heated only by the cook stove and i

One Letter Makes DifTernece.
There is one letter in the marriage
ceremony the substituting of which
i by another would induce thousands to '
i mnrry who are now single, and would
' give a license for unfaithfulness to
thousands who are married. Which
is the letter? The letter "V." If you
could substitute the letter "K" you
alter "So long as ye both shall live."
' Into "So long as ye both shall like."

Gulls in United Kingdom.
Before the eBlfast Natural History
society Mr. J. Brown gave reasons for
concluding that there are 2.000.00i !
gulls in the United Kingdom, and that
during the herring season each bird j
destrayed 200 fry a day. or 12.000 dur
ing the two months of the season.
These, if they had come to maturity,
would have been worth 24.000,000
