THE SHORT LINE TO
"THE LAND OF FULFILLMENT9
"The fruit grower must be a willing
worker, and to be successful he must
be a pusher and ever ready to take
time by the farelook. He must in
advance rather than behind with the
work. The mulch for the strawberries
and compost for raspberries, black
berries, currants, gooseberries and
Lucretia dewberries should now be
read' near the garden. As soon as
the ground is frozen hard enough to
bear up the horses and wagon put
the mulch on the strawberry bed. Do
not undertake to cover deep enough
to prevent freezing, for if this is done
the wet snows will pack the mulch and
smother the plants. Good judgment
is required here.
"Straw of any kind, corn stalks,
with or without the blades, leaves,
evergreen boughs, swamp grass or
any coarse material that is free of
seed will answer. This mulch should
be left on the bed until all danger of
freezing is over. Just before the
crowns open, the mulch should be
raked off the plants to the space be
tween the rows. If the soil is loamy
and light the mulch may be parted
over the plants and left in that way
to prevent the earth from being
splashed upon the fruit.
"For other lines of small fruit com
post is preferred to strawed mulch as
the latter invites mice, which will
gnaw the canes and injure the plants.
The compost may be scattered broad
cast over the, entire surface as the
condition of the ground demand, or
be placed around the hills. In either
case the compost should be worked
into the soil by means of a shallow
cultivator as early as the ground is
ir. condition for work. To do a perfect
job the surface should be worked until
thoroughly fined. Working should be
repeated at intervals of six and eight
days until raspberries and blackber
ries are turning red. Small fruits
cannot be successful!- grown without
thorough cultivation and pruning sea
son after season. When the grower
becomes experienced the work in the
small garden will be considered more
of a pleasure than a task."

One would think farming had made
no progress in the last fifty years
to look at what the "authorities'
undertake to teach in the country

should he not study nature and
LATE PLOWING IN ORCHARDS.
Professor King is authority for the
statement that late fall plowing and
deep cultivation in orchards of fruit
trees and in vineyards of small fruits,
after the wood is fully matured and
growth arrested by the cold weather,
will do much toward giving the soil
better moisture relations the next
spring. In cases where injury from
deep freezing is liable to occur, the
iate plowing will lesson this danger
because the loose soil blanket will
help to retain the heat in the ground
as well as the soil moisture.
In the. late plowing and deep tillage
there is little danger of increasing
the loss of plant food by leaching, be
cause the season is too late and the
temperature of the soil too low to
stimulate the formation of nitrates.
When ground is plowed late in the
fall, just before freezing, it then acts
during the winter and early spring
as a mulch, diminishing the loss of
water by surface evaporation, and at
the same time the roughened surface
tends to hold the snows and to per
mit winter and early spring rains to
penetrate more deeply into the soil
leaving the ground more moist at
seeding time than would be the case
if it were left unplowed.
Dead blackberry canes, if not yet
removed, should be removed without
further delay. They should also be
burned, as there may be among them
spores of some fungus disease.
LOOK AFTER FARM MACHINERY.
As we traveled through the coun
try about a week ago we still found
many, many binders, mowers and va
rious other machines standing in the
ard with nothing but a barb wire
fence to shelter them from sun and
rain. In fact, quite a number did not
even enjoy the distinction of being
cared for to the extent of standing
in a row of fence, but were scattered
all over the yard, where apparently
it had been convenient to leave them
when the busy farmer unhitched late
in the evening.
There is perhaps no business where
system is so hopelessly lacking as on
the farm. A man on a 160 acre farm
has perhaps a grain binder worth
$l25, a mower worth $50, a couple of
plows worth $50, harrows worth $50,
ond perhaps wagons worth $100 or
$150. Here we have an investment of
$500 or more, the interest on which is
$30 per year. Will it not pay to take
better care of this property? An air
tight building is not necessary for the
protection of the machinery. Con
struct a lean-to on the side of the
barn, if you can do no better, and
board up sufficiently to keep out sun
and rain, and you have a place to
Never put any machinery away that
has bright surfaces without a coat of
oil. Dry the bright surfaces and coat
heavily with oil. Beef suet also makes
an excellent material for that pur
pose. Next spring, or at any other
time, when you may need your plow,
it will be ready. It will scour as soon
as you put it into the ground. That
fact in itself may be worth several
dollars to you.
The harness needs to be oiled fre
quently enough to keep the leather
soft and pliable. It will last nearly
twice as long if well taken care of.
The work can be done on rainy days.
In many important European mark
ets receipts of American apples have
practically doubled every year for
the past years. In 1901 there were
exported from this counrty 1,600,000
barrels of apples. In 1902, 2,200,000
were shipped out. Cold storage and
rapid transit have brought the whole
world in touch with the Ozark apple
grower. Apples have been sold in
Hamburg and Liverpool within IS
days from the time they hung on the
trees in our Ozark orchards.
THE WINTER DAIRY.
Every farmer in America knows t
a dead certainty that to produce win
ter milk with profit or comfort, he
must have two things in abundance,
says a correspondent. First, a warm
barn or stable for his cows whera
manure will never freeze or accumu
late in unsightly piles. G at once to
work, and bank up your old high-
floor stables so the cold winter winds
can not whistle under the barn, nor

cattle use to keep warm with, and they

about your calculations of whether
they furnish you a drop of milk or not.

by compelling them to eat corn stalks

It used to be considered that only urinary and
bladder troubles tvere to be traced to the kid
neys, but now modern science proves that nearly
all diseases have their beginning1 in the disorder
of these most important organs.
Therefore, when your kidneys are weak or out
of order, you can understand how quickly your
entire body is affected, and how every organ
seems to fail to do its duty.
If you are sick or "feel badly" begin taking
the great kidney remedy, Dr. Kilmers Swamp
Hoot, because as soon as your kidneys begin to
get better they will help all the other organs to
health. A trial will convince anyone.
I was out of health and run down generally; had no
appetite, was dizzy and suffered with headache most of
the time. I did not know that my kidneys were the cause
of my trouble, but somehow felt that they miirht be, and I
began taking Swamp-Root. There issuch a pleasant taste
to Swamp-Root, and it goes right to the spot and drives
disease out of the system. It has cunnl me. making me
stronger and better in every way, and I cheerfully recom
mend it to all sufferers.
Mas. A. L. Walkeb. 331 East Linden St., Atlanta. Ga.
Weak and unhealthy kidneys are responsible
for many kinds of diseases, and if permitted to
continue much suffering and fatal results are
sure to follow. Kidney trouble irritates the

during the- night. Unhealthy kidneys cause
rheumatism, gravel, catarrh of the bladder, pain
or dull ache in the back, joints and muscles;
make your head ache and back ache, cause indi
gestion, stomach and liver trouble, you get a
sallow, yellow complexion, make you feel as
though you had heart trouble; you may have
plenty of ambition, but no strength; get weak
and waste away.
The cure for these troubles is Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the world-famous kidney remedy.
In taking Swamp-Root you afford natural help
to Nature, for Swamp-Root is the most perfect
healer and gentle aid to the kidneys that is
known to medical science.

CARROTS AS FOOD FOR HORSES.
BUYING NURSERY STOCK.
The season is again at hand when
opportunities to give orders for nur
sery stock to strangers will be numer
ous, and when new and wonderful
sorts to buy will be abundant. Now,
rot all stranger tree peddlers are dis
honest, nor are all new and wonder
ful sorts of fruits without merit; but
the percentage of dishonesty and want
of merit is so large that caution
should be observed in patronizing the
one or buying the other. The agent
who approaches you may be a strang
er, but if he represents a well and
favorably known nursery he is not
likely to deceive you. and if he does
you will be protected by his principal.
But if the agent and the nursery he
represents are both strangers, the
safest way is to pass up both. Where
the agent, his nursery and the things
he offers you are strangers it is best
to give the first his dinner, your bless
ings and nothing more. As for sorts
tc buy. the judgement of the bet fruit
growers in the state, usually repre
sented by the State Horticultural so
ciety, is the safest guide. All such
societies recommend the best tried
sorts for their respective regions, and
as a rule that recommendation should
be respected. If. however, one can
not resist the temptation to buy new
things let the purchase be small, so
that no serious loss will be sustained
if they prove worthless.
In Great Britain and also in Cana
da carrots are much used as a food
lor horses. Long experience has taught
the farmers in those countries that
carrots tend to keep in tone the di
gestion of the horses and colts to
which they are fed. They influence
the digestion of horses much the same
as turnips and mangles do the di
gestion of sheep and cattle. The reas
on why they are preferred to horses
over these is that horses are more
fond of them than of the other variet
ies of roots. This at least is one
reason why they are preferred.
Suppose grain and roughage are fed
tc horses in one instance without
carrots and carrots and roughage are
ted in another instance without grain;
m the instance last named the horses
will do as well as in that first named,
when not at work. If carrots could
be fed to horses in this Western coun
try in moderate quantities in the win
ter season, they would keep in better
tone than many of them do. There '
are no sound reasons why they should
rot be had, since they will grow in
any part of this Northwest. There is
considerable labor in handling them,
and that perhaps is the principal reas-
on why they are not grown more.
Hov to Find Out
If there is any doubt in your mind as to your
condition, take from your urine on rising about
four ounces, place it in a glass or bottle and let
it stand twenty-four hours. If on examination
it is milky or cloudy, if there is a brick-dust set
tling, or if small particles float around in it, your
kidneys are in need of immediate attention.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take and is used in
the leading hospitals, recommended by phy
sicians in their private practice, and is taken by
doctors themselves who have kidney ailments,
because they recognize in it the greatest and
most successful remedy for kidney, liver and

Prof. W. D. Carlisle of Chicago, a
horticulturist of national fame, who
en a recent visit to the great Frisco
Orchard Co's site near Lebanon, in
Laclede county, secured some of the
red soil chemical analysis. He found
the red clay soil, so valuable to the
apple grower, to have been produced
by the decomposition of rock by the
large amount of pyrites of iron which
It contains. He also found large pro
portions of lime, soda and potash, all
