Practice Greatly Reduce* Poaelbillt)
of Loalng Fertilizing Elementa?
?Cart la Handy.
A careful and intelligent nee ol
?table manure will build up the fer
tlllty of any farm. The trouble witb
tbe average former la that he wastes
his manure. The habit of regarding
manure as valueless 1* one of thi
moat expensive a farmer can have.
To properly conserve manure th?
liquid* as well aa tbe solids should tx
collected. For thia purpose lt ls w?M
to have the floor* of the stalls so thai
they will drain easily Into a wat?r
tight gutter at the rear. Thia guttei
j should be stopped at both ends, bu
i one end should be lower than thi
other to allow the liquids to drain t
Manure should be apread every da:
when lt ls poasible. This la very in
portant. ns lt greatly reduces th
chances of losing the fertilizing eb
ments. In summer lt can be apread ot
the field from which the Bolling rrop
have been removed, and In winter 01
grain fields. Newly seeded field
should not be manured.
A band cart may be used for spread
ing manure. Where there are a larg
number of cattle or horses, a upeela
dump cart, drawn by a single horne
may be used. Dally spreading insure
that any leaching by raina shall rarr
the leached materials Into the aol
where they are wanted.

"You aren't going to." Bald Dlllmere
"They are not for Jimmy'a youthful

grimly. "You'll have to keep those

for making a china cabinet out of a

lating. Anyhow, lt ls a matter of edu?
cation. I am aabamed to be Ignorant
of what has happened In the world."
After dinner Dlllmere retired Into
tbe fastness of an easy chair with his
books and promptly was lost to hil
' H'm!" coughed Mrs. Dlllmere at
laBt In desperation, "I looked at ne*
coata for Johnny today."
"H'm!" began ahe again. "Grace
telephoned that her uncle was dead.
I wonder if he left anything? She's
always expected that he would."
Mre. Dillmere looked at her husband
His eyes were popping out of his head
and he breathed deeply. "James," abe
proceeded In a converaatlonal vole*.

stairs and broke my neck!"
"I'm!" answered Jamea vacantly.
Mrs. Dillmere rose and awept th*
book from his hands.
"Why don't you listen to me'" sh?
"Whew!" breathed her husband.
"They were going some in the middl*
ages! If you didn't like a fellow you
just put cold poiHon in his tea and If
he wouldn't drink lt you choked him
till he did! Nobody seemed to mind
wholesale slaughter If you had money
enough to awe the populace! It must
have been fierce!"
That night Mrs Dillmere woke up
to find her husband pacing the floor
"Somehow," he said, "I can't sleep.
Are you sure the back basement win
dows are locked? I thought I heard
scime one on the basement stairs a
little while ago, I don't see what ls tc

the open bedroom windows from the

"It's that book you were reading"
declared Mrs. Dlllmere. "Go to bed!'
Dillmere persisted in reading thc
books. Occasionally when the hor?
rors grew too great for him to beal
alone he related them to his wlfi
after Johnny had gone to bed.
"I don't aee how they earned a liv

evening. "After every fellow go
