In brief, pull up every weed as soon

SURE TO DESTROY WEEDS
Ingenious Implements Arranged to
Allow Injection of Liquid Around
Roots of Plants.
A most ingenious implement for
destroying weeds has been invented
by a Washington man. A rod has

spout leading into the hollowv point
and a rubber bulb, by means of pres

reservoir are discharged through the
spout. This reservoir is filled with
tobacco juice or some other liquid
that wvill kill plant life. The garden
er then inserts the point at the root
of a weed and presses on the rub

is thus squirted on the roots of the
weed, wvhich soon kills it. Compare
this method with the laborious sys

and tearing up the tumrf into the bar

STACKING HAY FROM WAGONS
Trolley May Be Arranged to Do the
Work in Fields Where There
is Muoh Hay to Be Piled.
The accompanying Illustration
shows how to make a trolley stacker
that will do service in the field wvhere
there is much hay to be stacked. In
constructing this a wire cable one
half inch thick is required, says a
writer in the Farm and Home. It
may be made any length, according
to the requirements of the farm.

This cable is atta'hed to stakes in
the ground and is run up through a
crotch made by two long poles at
either end of the stack. On this ca
ble is run an ordinary hay fork. A,

cablos to the poles5.

is made of two circular pieces of
board one inch thick and six inches
in diameter belted face to face to

in the grooves previously cut. There
should be eight spaces between the
points, as there are eight spokes,
which at the end should be twenty
four and three-fourths inches apart.
The points of the spokes must not be

the result by 160, which will give the

BALE YOUR HAY THIS YEAR
Kept Compact, is Easjy to Handle
and Takes Up Comparatively
Little Room-Always Clean.
Loose hay Is so bulky that it takes
up flve or six times the barn space
of baled hay. Loose hay quickly
gathers dust-which causes cough
ing of stock and perhaps disease
The whole outside of a stack of loose
hay is practically wasted by wind,
rain, sun and the other elements,
This often amounts to 20 per cent of
the stack. Loose hay can not be
shipped far, and the local dealer
knows it. So he pays you his price.

an entirely different disease-that of
tape worm. These tape worms are huge
internal parasites, which locate in the
upper bowel and consume a large per
centage of the nutriment in undigested
food. They sometimes grow to a length
of forty to sixty feet. Ono may have a
tape worm for years and never know
the cause of his or her ilI health.
"Persons who are suffering from one
of these creatures become nervous, weak

are rarely fatal.
"The victim of this disease is apt to

"The most common symptom of this
trouble is an abnormal appetite. At
times the person is ravenously hungry
and cannot get enough to eat. At other
times the very sight of food is loathsome.

has headnches, fits of dizziness and nau

wonderful success in eliminating these

other method. They do even more for
skin-tortured and disfigured infants

A well-known clergyman was one
day, in a barber's shop, when four or
five young men walked in whom he
knew by their voices, but who did not
recognize the man in the chair, with
lather all over his face. They pro
ceeded to spend the time by telling
stories and using expressions which,
to say the least, were rather strong.
When the barber pulled away the
towel the clergyman, cleanly shaved,
stood before them. So nonplussed
were they that no one tried to take
the vacant chair, and the barber called

"I think papa and mamma might bet

he observed, indignantly.
On a certain day a doctor came to
the house and Horace thought he
knew what that meant His spirit of
revolt nearly got the better of him,
however, when a second doctor came.
A few hours later, after the doctors
had departed, his Aunt Ella told him
he had a new little brother. Horace
brightened, and tiptoed to his moth

he assured her. "There's only one."
