WANTED TO BE AGREEABLE
Farmer's Rather Humorous Explana
tion for Telling Exceedingly
Irving Ratcheller once told, a story
of a farmer on the Connecticut hills.
"Pretty steep land for planting. Isn't
it?" a visitor asked the tiller of the
"Pretty steep." the farmer assented.
"I suppose it's quite difficult to
plant your corn?"
"Quite difficult." came the echo.
The visitor was interested, and
would not be put off with short re
plies. "Eh how do you manage to plant
on this hill?" he persisted.
The farmer gazed at him pityingly.
"Wo have to shoot it all into the
earth with shotguns, stranger," he as
sured his guest.
The visitor gasped. "Really?" he
ejaculated. "Really now? Is that ac
The farmer sighed and turned upon
his guest a look of withering scorn.
"So, that isn't true," lie answered.
"I'm trying to make conversation."

Sweet clover is very drouth-resisting.
Plan for an orchard this year, if you

The cow is the final Judge as to
the real worth of silage.
Rye straw is of very littlo use on
the farm except for bedding.
A cow should be dried off for a few

Keeping records of the cows is oft

A cow that is run down or hide

build up her blood.
Many of the troubles experienced at
lambing time are are result of rough
handling and treatment during the
period of pregnancy.
The fanner's family is fortunate In
having an abundance of good food at
all seasons of the year, but this is
especially true in the winter.
Every farmer can have plenty of
eggs and chickens for himself and for
market if he will only turn a little of
his energy toward the hen house.
Are there not some places about the
farm where evergreens ought to be
planted? They mako a splendid wind

and know what they are doing If you
are going to keep them at all. and
then you can have as largo a flock as
you can manage.
There Is no danger of cattle chok

It the samo as hay before they at
tempt to swallow it and it goes down
their throats as easily.
Some one who has not been asleep
all the time during recent years has
said: "Cement and alfalfa are going

Independent people on earth."
For lice on hogs sprinkle them with
a trustworthy dip. which can be done
most readily with a sprinkling can. or
by pouring slowly into a can which
has been filled with holes in the bot
tom. Sweet corn Is one of the bsst sum
mer tablo vegetables. Grow plenty of
It this year and have a succession
coming on for late summer and fall
use. A good way to get an early
start of sweet corn is to plant seeds
in pieces of sod in the house or hot
bed and plant the young corn in the
garden as soon as the weather out
side will permit.
The value of manure varies with
the water content. Manure from cat
tle contains a large amount of water.
Manure from horses and sheep has
much less, because, on account of the
shape of the bowel, it comes in pel
lets or balls, and hence has a chance
to dry out. Therefore, it has much
more nitrogen, phosphorus and potas
sium per ton than that from cattle.
This Is particularly true of sheep, en

The one cry against the general
practice of dairy farming is that it
requires too much labor.
The well ventilated barn will be
more comfortable on the coldest day
than one poorly ventilated.
Twenty acres of corn put into the
silo is worth more in feeding a dairy
herd than 20 acres in the crib.
Don't forget about the lice these
days, when the hens are shut up a
good part of the day and night.
There Is a best temperature for each
Individual lot of cream, but this can
be determined only by experience.
If the man who has no silo would

There is a tradition that cows will

The best way to feed straw to
horses and mules at work is to re

No animal suffers more readily from

Alfalfa makes the hens cackle and
the turkeys gobble. It induces the
pigs to squeal and grunt with satis

to give rails full of creamy milk and
the shorthorn and whitefaced steers

softens the disposition of the colt and
hardens his bones and muscle3. It
fattens lambs as no other feed and
promotes a wool clip that is a verita

Unique Party for Children.
A mother of three lovely children
confided to me that her great success
in entertaining children was due to
her aim to have each little guest
With this idea in mind she Is going
to give this novel and really fascinat

Carnival." The very name has excited
the curiosity of the children as well
as their mothers. The hours are from
3:00 to 5:30 on a Saturday afternoon.
The ages of the guests are from eight
to twelve, and there will be 15 if
all accept, her three making 18, about
all she can seat comfortably at small
tables in the dining room.
The tradesmen she is to have rep
resented are tailor, dressmaker, pot
ter, jeweler, flower maker, sign paint
er, artist, basket maker, upholsterer
and carpenter. Two or perhaps three
will work at the same trade. When
the guests arrive they will be given
cards with the name of the trade they
are to represent Then the little
craftsmen go to a table, where their
materials are prepared ready for them
and one or two assistants to show
where they are to work. One hour is
to be the time allotted to make the
finished products, then a bell will
ring and the articles collected and
placed on exhibition. The children
ire to be allowed to vote as to the
first second and third best piece and
the prizes will be awarded. Each
child is also to take home the object
made and each receive a souvenir, so
all will feel satisfied.
