and not good for others.

Every crop raised on the farm
should help to put the soil into better
condition. This is the purpose and
aim of rotation in crops.
Good stables, well-lighted, well-ventilated,
and arranged with a view to
the comfort of the cows quartered
there are some of the requisites to a
good dairy farm.
The opportunities of picking up fine
heifers are growing scarcer as the
dairymen are becoming alive to the
value of keeping the promising heif
ers and raising them for themselves.
A farm without pasture land means
that little if any stock is kept, and
where this is true it is safe to "con
clude that the land is being run down,
rather than built up. unless lots of ma
nure is bought and hauled upon the
Now is the time to attend to the ver
min In the hen house if you have not
.looked to it before. A fight begun this
late in the season is better than no
fight at all. It will be a hard one, but
you must conquer if you do not want
the vermin to eat up all your profits.
How many farmers go to the ex
pense of setting out an orchard, tak
ing up valuable land by so doing and
who then expect that the orchard is
going to run itself without further
care or attention from him. What
folly. Plant trees and then cultivate
them as you do your other crops.
Never let the sod get thin on the
pasture land for this always means
the decrease of the root systems of
the plants and a decrease in their abil
ity to penetrate the soil in search of
plant food. When sod becomes so thin
that the hoof of the animal will break
through it in wet weather, it has
reached a state of exhaustion .that re
It is always best to feed the calves
by hand because one knows just what
they are getting and how much. It is
really not such a terrible task to feed
a dozen calves, but it is quite a nuis
ance to go through the motion just
for one or two. Perhaps a great many
dairymen who object to raising calves
for their own herds would change
their minds if they should practice it
in a wholsesale way.
Any old method is a poor way to
handle the calf. The most successful
dairymen allow the animal to suck the
cow for the first two or three days,
then feed the whole milk until about
two weeks old, then gradually jdrim
the milk. If the calf is healthy and
worth raising at all. it will do well
on skim milk alone, at this age. At
two or three weeks old, place a little
whole corn and oats before it, which
it will sooon learn to eat, also hay and
silage. Keep the calf in thrifty con
dition, for once run down it is hard
to get back to normal condition again,
and during that time It has lots of
Do not let the soil form a crust.
It is at such times that the evapora
tion of the moisture is very rapid.
Run the cultivator through the corn
to prevent this condition, and the
oftener it is cultivated the better the
crop will do. Such cultivation puts a
fine dust mulch upon the surface
which effectually prevents evapora
tion except at a very slow rate. Any
one, that has examined a well-cultivated
field has been struck by the dry
ness of tfie surface, and only a few
inches below it was almost wet
enough to make mud balls. After
every rain it is necessary to break up
the crust that forms. In this way
moisture enough may be accumulated
to tide over the period when it is
needed most. A little shower often
does considerable damage by destroy
ing the dust mulch, and it should
be restored as soon as possible.
As a pasture for sows and young
pigs, alfalfa proves a wonderfully
helpful ration for milk-making in the
sow and for growth in pigs. Experi
ments have shown that pigs make bet
ter growth when the dam is fed con
siderable alfalfa than those from sows
fed the best of commercial rations,
but with no alfalfa. Of two sets of
pigs, on 2 fed clover, rape and soaked
corn, and the other with access to al
falfa in lieu of clover and rape, those
having alfalfa seemed to grow the
more rapidly. For brood sows, it Is
a most valuable food, either as hay,
a soiling crop, or as pasture. The
litters of such sows are generally
large and vigorous and the dams have
a strong flow of nutritious milk. Al
falfa meal in slop may be used with
profit where the hay is not to be ob
tained. It is also claimed that sows
fed on alfalfa during pregnancy will
not devour their young, its mineral
elements seeming to satisfy the appe
tite of the sow, while contributing to
the fetal development of the pigs.
When the corn' begins to dent 1s' the
time to cut it for the silo.
The best cows are Jhe ones that the
careful dairyman raises for himself.
Dry feed for young chicks is grow
ing in favor among many poultrymen.
Growing sheep for mutton is' all
right, but be sure that you'have sheep
that grow a good back o wool.
Young poultry, cannot- develop nor

they do not have any such handicap
In the struggle for growth.. r
If the pasturage is good it is ques
tionable whether it pays to give heavy
grain ration. The difference in gain
is not offset by the. increased expense:
It looks like a waste when thinning
the fruit on the trees, but the harvest
time of larger and better fruit proves
the wisdom of the course.
Radishes , need lots of potash, and
for this reason wood ashes sprinkled
on the soil. where they are grown will
give them large and rapid growth.
It is a look a long ways ahead, hut
just make up your mind now that you
will attend your state and county fair
This is a good haying year .in most
sections. The cool, moist weather
nas encouraged heavy growth, and
there ought to be plenty of hay
throughout the country.
Oats and field peas make a good
combination crop for hay. The peas
add the protein property to the fodder
ana the oats hold the vines up so that
they can be cut with the mower.
In sending eggs to market have
them as near in size and color as pos
sible. Ill-assorted eggs never bring as
good a price as those with even ap
pearance. It is the wise farmer who feeds all
he raises and then buys some from
his neighbors to feed. The farmer
who carries such an amount of live
stock will be constantly improving
his land and making it more pro
ductive. Do you appreciate the fact that if
the liquid manure is not utilized the
most valuable part of the manure Is
lost? Use absorbents in the stable
to take up the liquid manure, or bet
ter still have a cistern into which all
the liquid manure can be drained, and
from which it can be pumped and
used as desired.
Study the character of the soil of
your pasture land if the grass is not
doing well, and aim to supply the
fertilizer containing the elements
needed. The droppings of the ani
mals help, but some concentrated fer
tilizers are also needed. Harrowing
the pasture fields will help to break
up, distribute and work into the soil
the coarse dropping of the pastured
animals, besides improving the . tex
ture of the soil. '
For the first week after farrowing
until weaning the sow will be little
else than a milk machine, and to be
a high-power machine in perfect op
eration she must have proper care.
Nothing else is so well calculated to
make pigs grow as a bountiful supply
of wholesome sow's milk, and the pigs
that have plenty of other feed with
the milk of a well-slopped sow for
eight weeks will ordinarily have much
the start of those weaned at five or
six weeks, no matter how much food
and attention the earlier weaned pigs
may have had.
After the first two weeks you can
get the calf onto skim milk. Whole
milk is too expensive to raise calves
on. Calves thrive much better on the
warm skimmed milk from the hand
separator than on the skimmed milk
brought home from the creamery,
where the milk of several hundred
cows is probably mixed, or the milk
set in pans and crocks or deep cans,
which, when the cream is taken off,
is always cold and usually half sour.
I think skimmed milk may be fed to
calves with more profit than to any
other thing about the farm, unless it
be the poultry.
A cow will make use of between
three and four tons of silage a year.
With ten cows and other stock to use
as much ensilage as the cows, one
could use 60 to 80 tons per year.
Where enough stock is kept to use to
advantage 80 or more tons of ensilage
per year one may be justified in in
vesting in a silo and the necessary
machinery to fill It The larger and
better the herd and the better the
dairyman the -more profitable, ensilage
becomes. One is never justified in
the use of expensive feed like ensilage
unless he gets to be a careful herds
man, furnishes his animals comfort
able quarters, good, regular care and
protection from storms and winds.
Milking under quiet, favorable con
ditions is quite important for the fol
lowing reasons plainly set forth by
John Burroughs, the, eminent natural
ist, in speaking of the supposed powd
er of cows to "hold-up" their milk.
Says Mr. Burroughs: "Most farmers
and country people think that the 'giv
ing down' or 'holding up' the milk by
the cow is a voluntary act. In fact,
they fancy that the udder is a ves
sel filled with milk, and that the cow
releases or withholds it just as4 she
chooses. But the udder, is a manufac
tory; it is filled with blood fro5 which
the milk is manufactured while you
milk. This process is controlled by
the cow's nervous system; when she
is excited or in any way disturbed, as
by a stranger, or by taking away her
calf, or any other cause, the .process
is arrested and the milk will not flow.
The nervosa energy goes elsewhere.
The whole process is as involuntary
as is digestion in man, and is dis
turbed or arrested in about the same
It is well for those who are inclined
to use the milk stool on a cow when
she refuses to "let the milk down" to
remember Mr. Burroughs statements,
which are without question correct

There are natures of the mystical,

Algermon Blackwood in Country Life.
Before a given landscape, that is, they
find the explanation of their emotion by
translating the color, distance, confor
mation and so forth unto definite spir
itual sensations; passing thus, with
out too great confusion, from the finite
to the infinite. Until this is success
fully accomplished there is a sens of
disquietude almost of pain; the love
liness blinds. But, once that inner
key is found, the result is peace; the

Best and Worst Cigarette
Veteran Travelers Agree That Russia
Has the One and France
There are two things that smokers
who travel extensively are agreed
upon: That the worst cigarette ever
forced upon an unsuspecting stranger
is he French, and the best cigarette
is me Russian.
One writer describes the French
:igarette as follows:
"The tobacco, which has been aptly
iescrlbed as consisting of scorched
linen flavored with assafoetida and
glue, is' very coarsely cut, more so
than for the pipe In England, and
very dark. To reduce Its strength
It is steeped In water. The resultant
cigarette is indescribably horrible;
English smokers fall to recognize it
as tobacco. Yet of those cigarettes,
France smokes some three hundred
billions a year; in any form but that
of the cigarette it would be intolera
ble. An Englishman will face un

on looking closer through field-glasses
it showed itself really alive with raove

rifts with fringed and jagged edges
shooting in all directiens, though nev
er high enough to destroy the gen
eral effect of calm surface. There
were swift draughts and whirlwinds
astir through the entire mass. It was
the glasses, of course, that betrayed
the colossal scale of the thing. Far

of the sea. Then, as the mass fell
from ledge to ledge and finally dropped
over the last dizzy cliff into the Os
chinen bee, we heard the thundering
roar that echoed below, behind and
overhead, and later felt the icy wind
that followed the displacement of the
air. Yet no signs were otherwise vis
ible. The surface of the mist-sea re
mained untroubled. Nothing stirred;
only the mighty sounds and the mes
sage of the loosed wind. And. far over
bead, the iron battlements of rock
stood serene and terrible, their foun
dations rising out of the vast platform
of vapour that wrapped them about

Sue Granger and the Lamp Post
JDV EUis Parker 3trticrtt
Atdhor cfVi&s Is Pids Eic-
"Uth a Wuth a Wuth.Uth Uth!" She Said.
Surgical science is getting to be a
great thing these days. You would
never believe, to see Sue Granger of
Betzville lick a two-cent postage
stamp, that she was born tongue-tied.
She was, though, until she was two
years old, and then a surgeon came
down from the city and loosened up
her tongue, and when he was done she
had the best quantity and quality of
all-'round tongue in the village. She
has such a sizeable tongue that when
she is writing a letter it lops out like
a dog's on a hot day, and it was only
last, week that she bit it badly whilst
writing to that blonde-headed young
fellow that comes up from the city
to see her on Sundays.
I never shall forget that day last
winter when she was walking down
Main street eating a bunk of yellow
taffy and choked on it. Just as she
choked she had to cough and her
tongue flew out and the end hit an
iron lamp post, and the frost in the
lamp post glued the tip of her tongue
to it so tight that it seemed as if
nothing short of warm weather and a
thaw would ever get it loose again.
Of course we're not what you might
call curious-minded in Betzville, but it
ain't human nature fo see a girl stand
ing right in front of the grocery on
our most prominent corner with the
end of her tongue against a lamp
post and her hands waving in the air.
and not take a little interest. So
mostly all the population gathered
there in two minutes, being surprised
to see a young lady of our best social
circles rolling her eyes wildly and
connected close up with a lamp-post
like she and it was a sort of new
style Siamese twins. We walked all
around Sue and talked it over, but we
couldn't make any sense out of it, and
we was just about to decide it was
some new suffragette notion that had
just come to town when Uncle Ash
dod Clute thought he might as well
ask Sue. So he did. She rolled her
eyes at him kind of grateful.
"Uth a wuth a wuth uth uth!" she
Uncle Ashdod is a pretty wise old
man, and he guessed what was the
matter right away, and as we seen it
might be inconvenient for Sue to
stand there that way until warm
weather turned up, on account of that
lamp-post being a favorite hitching
post, and some horses being biters
and liable to bite Sue on the tongue, so
we set to work and formed a commit
tee to get her loose.
But it wasn't any use. Sue Granger
had the most flexible tongue I ever
saw. and when the fellows had pulled
her back to the window of the gro
cery store they saw the tongue wasn't
going to come loose at either end. so
they let go, and the tongue contracted
like a rubber band and yanked Sue
across the sidewalk and slammed her
up against the lamp-post. All she said
was "Uth!" but we could see she did
not like it. And she wasn't going to
have it tried again, either, for she
wrapped her arms around that lamp
post and hugged it tight.
Then the committee didn't know
what to do! We walked around and
around that lamp-post and studied the
situation, and then we saw that when
Sue had slammed up against it two or
three more lengths of her tongue had
struck the iron post and glued them
selves onto it tight. Well, it was

lucky it was a lamp-post, anyway, for
while we were cogitating over it night
came on, and all we had to do was to
light the lamp on top of the post. It
made it more cheerful for Sue. So
when we had done that and had got a
high office stool so she could sort of
sit down we felt that the committee
had done about all it could for that
evening, and we adjourned. But Uncle
Ashdod Clute saw that it wasn't right
to leave a girl out that way all night
alone, and that she ought to have a.
chaperone, so he sent for Aunt
She came right down and said she
would be glad to chaperone Sue. but
she didn't believe a word of that non
sense about the frost in the pest glue
ing Sue's tongue to it, and she showed
Uncle Ashdod that it was all nonsense
by sticking her own tongue to the
pest and there it stuck! So then
Uncle Ashdod was sure Aunt Rhino
colura would not go away and leave
Sue unprotected, and he went home
satisfied in his mind.
The next morning the committee
came around quite early, after it had
done up its home chores, and it found
Aunt Rhinocolura and Sue were real
peevish. It looked as if they had quar
reled during the night over who should
sit on that high stool.
"Uth a wuth a wuth a wuth!" said
Sue, angrily, but Aunt Rhinocolura
Just drew herself up indignantly and
"Uth a with a with a with!"
Anybody could see that they were
mortal enemies from that minute on,
but we had nothing to do with that,
and we consulted and decided that the
thing to do was to put both of them
in a hospital, and as there wasn't any
hospital in Betzville, somebody's
house would have to be used. So they
chose Aunt Rhinocolura's, and we dug
up the lamp-post and put it in a
wagon, with Sue on one side of it and
Aunt Rhinocolura on the other, and
when we got them to Aunt Rhinoco
lura's the women put them to bed. I
guess it was a pretty cold lamp-post,
for we could hear the two of them yell
about the time they ought to have
The committee gave the case to
Doc Perkins, and the first thing he did
was to take the temperature of the
lamp-post, and he said it showed a low
temperature and no fever, and he
would advise .packing the lamp-post
in snow to take the frost out. So tfiey
did. But the lamp-post didn't seem
to Improve. So Doc Wilkins was called
in consultation, and he said what the
lamp-post needed was, hot-water bag3
at its foot and mustard plasters up its
sides to heat it up. So they tried that.
No good. Then Doc Perkins wanted
to amputate the tongues of the la
dies, but Doc Wilkins objected. He
wanted to saw the lamp-pcst down the
middle, so each lady could have a half,
and Sue could go home. Objected to.
So nobody knew what Jo do. and those
