Always take you wife into your

out the hard problems.

change should be gradual.
The last call to clean out all the
stock which will not pay their way
through the winter season.
Foed all stock so that there will be
a gain. It is a losing business to feed
so as to just keep them even.
Ask the wife's advice and follow it
after it is given. You cannot go far
wrong when you trust her judgment.
Keep the skim milk on the farm.
You cannot afford to let it go. Get a
separator, sell the cream and feed the
milk to the pigs and calves.
A windbreak for the orchard would
prove a good thing and evergreens are
about the best for this purpose. Plan
to set some out in the spring.

have new ideas worked out.
One method of feeding molasses to
horses or other stock Is to mix it with
water and dampen the hay which has
been cut into short lengths. Then to
this the ground feed may be added.
Fall plowing of the ground is good
both because it exposes many insects
to the killing frosts of winter, and
also because it puts the ground into
condition for early planting in the
If you have kept a record of your
field operations and made note of soil
and crop conditions during the grow
ing season you will have valuable
memoranda for comparison with the
actual results obtained and will thus
be able intelligently to determine what
arc the best methods for you to follow
in your farm operations.
Plan work for the rainy days. A
sood job for the days when the weath
er shuts you in is that of going over
the harness, oiling and repairing it A
majority of farmers are very slack in
the way in which they care for the
harness. Cleaning and oiling and re
pairing weak places will make harness
last twice as long as it will under
conditions of neglect.
The department of agriculture has
estimated that the crop values will
mount up to eight billions of dollars
live hundred millions more than last
year. Who dares to say that this
has been a poor year? It has been a
trying one in some respects and some
sections have suffered, but taken as a
whole the farmers have done better
than ever before. Praise God from
'whom all blessings flow.
To have good silage one must have
a good silo. If you are going to
build one and want to get the best in
formation regarding the best types
of silos, send to the Iowa Agricultural
college for its recent bulletin on silo
construction. This bulletin gives in
condensed form the advantages and
tlisad vantages of all the various types
of silos, together with practical hints
on their construction. Profuse illus
trations aid in making the meaning
clear. It is a pamphlet that will be
invaluable to any farmer or dairyman
who is contemplating the erection of
a silo.
Farmers who are in any way en
gaged in fruit raising will be inter
ested in the program planned by the
Illinois State Horticultural society for
its annual convention at Champaign.
It proposes to give a course of lec
tures and laboratory work along prac
tical horticultural lines in addition to
the usually interesting program,
which includes instruction in the prop
agation of plants by seeds, cutting
and grafting, the grading and packing
of fruits and the selection and judg
ing of exhibition fruits. Three whole
days will be devoted to the subject of
spraying, in its various phases. Three
sessions will be given to the study
and demonstration of pruning fruit
trees. Due attention will be given to
landscape gardening, floriculture and
vegetable gardening.
All the uncultivated, unproductive
lands are not to be found in the great
arid west, nor in the swamp lands of
some of our southeastern states. They
are to be found in small patches on in
numerable farms throughout the coun
try. And why so? Because our
farmers are thoughtless and careless
and do not by the best methods get
the best out of their soil. By special
treatment there is scarcely a square
foot of ground on any farm which can
not be made to pay a profit. How
much of your farm is practically
worthless? Study it up. Don't let
it lie idle any longer. If it needs
draining, tile it. If it needs buiJdng
up, put stock on it and fertilize it.
Find out what is the matter with it
and then apply the remedy. Your state
agricultural college stands ready to
help you. Get the advice of the ex
perts to be found there. Not one
quarter of our farmers are availing
themselves of the helping hand which
our state agricultural experts are only
too glad to extend to every one who

Mongrel stock never brougat sac

Ground troubled with white crabs
should be fall plowed.
Corn and oats ground together make
a fine ration for the stock.
It's the slovenly farmer who allows
the chickens to roost in the barn.
Cleanliness is an essential factor in
successful sheep fanning. Provide
clean drinking water, and clean yards.
Wheat can't be beat as a poultry
feed, but corn should be fed with it
to supply the starchy food needed.
Go through the orchard and destroy
all cocoons and egg clusters on trunks,
branches, etc. Clean up the ground,
also, and burn the litter.
Clean milk cannot be produced from
cows kept in filthy surroundings.
There is nothing which is so easily
contaminated as milk.
Corn is not objectionable as a ra
tion for the brood sow if too much
is not fed and if oats or other grain
rich In protein is provided.
Twenty parts common lime, five
parts salt and 15 parts of water when
mixed well and then bottled make
good fire extinguishing grenades.
Let us raise more sheep and supply
the constantly increasing demand for
wool. Altogether too much wool has
to be imported. The farms would be
better and the fanners richer if they
raised more sheep.
Put the farm tools and machines up
for the winter, but before doing so
be sure they are cleaned and oiled.
The time spent now will not only pro
long the life of the tools but will
save you valuable time in the spring.
Care for the cows right now and
they wiy keep up the milk flow all
winter. It is in the fall when the
change from summer to winter condi
tions is made that most cows suffer.
Let the change be as gradual as pos
sible. You are burning up good money
when you burn up the leaves. Save
them for bedding or rake in a pile
and cover over with branches to pre
vent blowing away. It will make fine
compost for the garden and for pot
ting plants.
Scatter wood ashes around the poul
try yard. They will purify the ground
and the chickens will pick up the
small bits of charcoal. This is good
for them. And this reminds us to urge
you not to forget to provide suitable
grits for them.
To mark your tools effectively do
It with nitric acid. Place beeswax or
tallow on place where metal is to be
eaten out and scratch the letters
through the wax. Pour the acid in the
groove thus formed and after a few
minutes clean off and you will find
your name in the steel to stay.
The Texas experiment station has

which passes into the solid excrement
has a valuation of about $12.40, and
that which passes into the urine of
about $15. Here is proof of the im
portance of saving the liquid manure.
One of the indications that there is
a growing interest in agriculture is
the increasing space which the maga
zines of the country are giving to sub

Why not a course of study in sales

If there is one point in which the av

how to dispose of his produce to the
best advantage. Such a course could
be arranged to teach the farmer what
he should know about the distribution

He will then learn to dispose of his

San Jose scale is made as follows:
To make 150 gallons of the mixture,
take 65 pounds of best stone lime and
50 pounds of sulphur. Make a paste of
the sulphur and have from 15 to 20
gallons of boiling water in an iron
caldron over a brisk fire. Into this
put the lime, immediately adding the
sulphur paste. This is rapidly cooked,
40 or 50 minutes, or longer, or until
it looks as red as canned tomatoes.
It must be vigorously stirred all the
while, when it gets as smooth as glass.
Then add a sufficient amount of hot
water to make 150 gallons. Strain
through fine wire sieve or netting, and
apply while mixture is still warm. Use
a good pump with a high pressure,
and coat every twig. The time to
spray for the San Jose scale is in the
fall or the early spring, while the
leaves are off.

The German kaiser has four sisters,
all of whom are younger than himself.
The first sister is Princess Charlotte
of Saxe-Meiningen. who is married,
and is now 48 years of age. The sec
ond is Princess Victoria, married to
Prince Adolf of Schaumburg-Lippe,
and is now in her forty-third year.
The third is Princess Sophie, who
made the best match of all, being mar
ried in her nineteenth year to Crown
Prince Constantine of Greece. She is
now 38 years of age. The fourth and
youngest is Princess Margaret, who
celebrated her thirty-sixth birthday in
April last She married Prince Fred
erick Charles of Hesse.
The princesses are all true Hohen
zollerns, though they differ very much
in their mental capacity and tastes.
The eldest of them, Princess Char
lotte, is a good deal like the kaiser
himself. She blurts out whatever
comes into her mind, and sometimes
opposes her imperial brother In a very
spirited sort of fashion, so that the
kaiser is a little bit afraid of her.
Crown Princess Sophie of Greece has
a special grievance against her broth
er, because, when Greece last made
war on Turkey, in 1897, the kaiser
gave his sympathy entirely to the
Turks. German artillerymen were
present in the Turkish army, and
Greece was beaten to her knees in a
campaign of 31 days. Princess Sophie's
husband, Constantine, is in Greece
usually styled the duke of Sparta.
Princess Victoria, the wife of
Prince Adolf, is the least clever of the
four sisters. It was originally intend
ed that she should marry Prince Alex
ander of Battenberg, but happily Bis
marck interfered to prevent the match,
and Alexander opportunely died. At
a family meeting Crown Princess
Sophie is said to have asked in a de
spairing mind: "What can our broth
er admire in that nasty old sultan?"
To which Princess Victoria replied:
"Ask my husband. He must know;
for the kaiser tells him everything."
Prince Adolf, being thus appealed to,
explained in these words:
"William says that he likes the sul
tan because he is the embodiment of
absolutism. He is a ruler who has
resolved to reign even at the cost of
seeing half his people killed so that
the other half may learn to obey."
All these royal ladies combine in
their personality a regal bearing and
a handsome presence. They are far
better favored in this respect than
was their mother, Princess Victoria,
daughter of Queen Victoria of Eng
land. She was the queen's oldest
child, and was plain to a degree. In
fact, she was keenly aware of this
herself, though she was never sensi
tive about it, and used to speak about
it with a touch of derision. She had
the fortune to marry Grown Prince
Frederick of Prussia (afterwards Em
peror Frederick of Germany), who was
the most superbly handsome prince in
It was about the time of her be
trothal to him that she is said to have
been found one day by Queen Victoria
examining her face carefully in the
mirror. The princess turned around
slowly, and with a comical grimace,
remarked with an air of Intense con
viction: Swindlers' Ruse.
The Toulouse police have arrested
a gang of swindlers, whose stock in
trade was a beautiful old cabinet and
considerable effrontery.
With these they took on lease for
the summer an old castle near Tou
louse, and hired a venerable-looking
old lady to act as its owner. They
then found an amateur, took him to
the castle and sold him the cabinet
Then they invited the victim to
lunch, and while he was eating the
meal the real cabinet was replaced by
a perfect imitation, which eventually
the victim carried off with him.
The swindlers, before their arrest,
succeeded In selling their cabinet 33
times at prices varying from $500 to
Bad Luck.
"Mother," said five-year-old Jack,
"how much older than you is father?"
"Just 13 years," replied tho unsus
pecting parent
"Well, mother," seriously continued
the child, "the next time yon marry,
don't marry a man 13 years older than
you; don't you know it la bad luck?"
"Mother, I look exactly like a white
Therefore, such good looks as these
Hohenzollern princesses have come to
them wholly from their father. Prin
cess Charlotte and Princess Sophie
are the most attractive, and they have
both kept their youth remarkably
well, "'he youngest of the four. Prin
cess Margaret, resembles her mother
more than do any of the others. All
of them are expert at riding and open
air diversions. Princess Victoria Is
one of the best horsewomen In Eu
rope. She Is very fond of the sport.
As said above, Princess Charlotte Is
not at all impressed with her imperial
brother's dignity. Some time ago the
kaiser- caused to be published a piece
of music known as "The Song of
Aeigir," of which he himself claimed
to be the composer. The piece was
performed at the Royal opera house
in Berlin, and all of the courtiers pro
nounced it a remarkable piece of
music. Princess Charlotte, however,
was secretly amused, and, having
some ideas of her own on the subject,
privately questioned the kaiser's adju
tant. Count von Moltke.
"Tell me," said she, "who helped
his majesty to put together that fear
ful song?"
The adjutant was very much embar
rassed, and tried to avoid a direct an
swer. Finally, when hard pressed, he
"His majesty composed the song."
"Yes," said the princess, "that is, of
course, the official version. But what
I want you to tell me is just how his
majesty did it."
"At the piano," replied the adjutant.
Princess Charlotte smiled ironically.
"Yes," said she, "but since when has
his majesty learned to play the
piano?" Her tone was disconcerting.
A little later she showed Count von
Moltke that she was quite well aware
that he had composed the music, and
that the orchestration had been done
by Dr. Becker, who afterward received
a decoration as a reward for his as
sistance and his silence In the affair.
Many other stories are told of the
cleverness and humor of Princess
Charlotte, who finds the kaiser's
formal functions a good deal of a
bore. Indeed, she is quite democratic
in her irreverence for court forms; so
much so that the empress once said of
her: "She demoralizes the younger
"Have you mapped out no career
for your son?"
"Yep, a sort of a career."
"But you do not seem to concern
yourself much about his education."

we're going to run him for vice-president!"

The man carried a camera. An idea

WASHINGTON. The "rough ri
ders" of the Taft administration
will be the members of the Yale class
of 1878. When Roosevelt became
president the soldiers of his famous
regiment became the White House
pets. The Rough Rider colonel never
overlooked an opportunity to show his
affection for his comrades by granting
them favors of great and small im
portance. The fondness of the presi
dent for his cowboys and quick shoot
ers was so pronounced that it had a
marked effect on the popular under
standing of his administration.
Mr. Taft's personal loyalty and de
votion will go to an entirely different
set of men. The one set of men whom
he places above others in sentimental
and affectionate regard is made up of
the youngsters, now grown up, who
graduated at Yale in 1878. Nearly all
of these men are now a little over 50
years of age, and most of them un
der 55.
Those in good health are in active
occupations, and a large number have
made their marks in various lines.
They live in many countries of the
world and cover wide ranges of work.

THE next mistress of the White
House will go shopping just as ladies

are elated. In the next three
months Washington women will order

inauguration of a new president
That Mrs. Taft is so friendly to
Washington means many thousands ot
dollars to them. Not many years has
a president been elected who practi
cally considered Washington his home.
In the matter of clothes Mrs. Taft
is a woman of the plain type. While
well and usually handsomely gowned
her clothes are never the first thing
which attracts the attention of the
stranger. Her taste runs to the plain
cloth and rich silks. She Is em
phatically not the tailor-made silk

She has never appeared in an im

"Wash Ladies" Must Have a Li
WASHINGTON is now unquestion
ably the most governed city on
earth. It stands without a rival in
the matter of statutes and regula
tions. Congress enacts the laws and
a triumvirate of commissioners pre
scribe the rules under which people
may live and move and have a being.
Each and every walk of life Is plas
tered with regulations. These range
all the way from supervision of wash
erwomen to the control of corpora
tions. And so it came to pass that the
other day the local health department
was besieged by washerwomen, all
seeking the required license by means
of which they may be enabled to
sneak the week's laundry of the or
dinary taxpayer home without the
whole bundle being confiscated by a
vigilant inspector. Every "lady" who
takes in washing, and they are esti
maetd to number more than 3,000,
must obtain a permit within 30 days
Tons of Campaign
THE government printing office was
an important factor in the recent
presidential campaign. This institu
tion turned out for the Republican and
Democratic parties 7,418,700 copies of
speeches delivered in congress, sur
passing all previous records by 3,000,
000 copies.
The total weight of campaign
speeches printed since the beginning
of the Sixtieth congress exceeds 400.
000 pounds, or about 14 car loads.
The printed sheets would completely
cover 45 square acres of ground, and
if each page could be laid end to end
a bicycle track 947 miles long could
be obtained.
The number of words contained in
this year's run of speeches have been
roughly estimated at 230,000,000,000.
With the newspaper calculation of four
readers to each copy, this would re
quire the assimilation of nearly 1,000,
000,000,000 words.

their children. .No matter how busy,
he is always ready to hear about a
new baby or grandchild or an old
classmate. With many he keeps up a

as many of them to office as Roose

Mrs. Taft and her daughter are both

months before the holiday week, and
by the time other Christmas shoppers

gifts are bought and carefully put
