When to Kill- Hoes.
The best time to kill hogs is just
as soon ae-the season is cold enough.
In winter the cost of increase, in
weight is greater than in summer, and
the nearer the approach of thc animal
to maturity the slower it gams in pro
portion to food consumed.
Plants Affected With Inserts.
Window plants that appear yellow;
or'do not have a healthy appearance
are. overmaturetLbr affected- with in
sects. The pots should be examined
in order to discover if the drainage
is perfect It is not necessary to have
the earth wet., but simply moist, and
to allow the earth to dry sotne will,
do no harm. The dust in the rooms
will settle in the leaves of the plants,
which makes it necessary to give each
plant a thorough washing occasionally.
The Solids in the Milk.
Although the law may fix a mini
mum percentage of solids in the milk
sold in market, yet milk varies accord
ing to the kind of cows and the food
and water allowed. It ls possible to
water milk through the cow, and the
milk from one cow will vary day after
day. The highest percent of solids in
milk found in England, when tests
were made was 14.49 and the lowest
was 11.02. The proportion of fat
ranged from 2.20 to 4.85 percent, show
ing that some of the milk was more
than twice as rich in cream as others,
in the United States the percentage
of both solids and fat have been
gr?ater where tests have been made.

Make the Pis Urow.
Give the young pigs a good start.
It will be to your interest to do so.
A young pig that has once been stunt
ed will never wholly outgrow it, no
matter how good the subsequent care
may be. Any animal being grown for
meat should have feed enough to make
& good gain every day from birth to
slaughter. If there is ever a time in
that animal's life when no ?ain is be
, ing made in weight, all feed'consumed
during that time ls practically lost, for
"the profit all comes from the feed
that makes the gain above the amount
required ? to maintain the . animal's
needs. In other words, a certain
amount of feed necessary to keep the'
animal alive, and the profit must all
come from the little extra feed that
makes the gain in flesh. A young ani
mal will gain more on a given quantity
of teed than an older animal on the
same feed. I think we might safely
say the younger the animal the
greater the gain for the feed con-^
sumed. That is why it pays better to'
feed young stock.-Swine Advocate.
Bens Stop Laying.
There is some cause why hens sud
denly stop laying, though certainly
not alway.s a lack of food, as the
cessation may happen in a single day.
Neither is it due to disease, as the
hens may be very healthy! It is noth
ing more nor less than a lack of
warmth, the heat produced from food
being necessary.to keep.up the ani
mal heat, leaving nothing toward the
production of eggs. . .
A certain amount of heat is due ?
the body of the fowl and should the
' building not be' sufficiently warm,
then that food which should go toward
producing eggs is devoted' toward sup
plying heat for the body.
One cold night with insufficient pro
tection for the hens will stop their
laying for fully a week, this occasion
ing a loss far greater in the end than
would have been the cost of a ! warm
Don't neglect the hens In winter if
.you expect to have them lay eggs. .
Watch carefully for each sudden
change in rSe weather and ' change
the house accordingly. During ' the
day keep the hens hustling from day:
light till dark and the cold will have
no effect on the egg supply.
Let the morning feed be very light,
only one-third of a full meal, then it
will not be difficult to keep them*
busy.-Home and Farm.
The Value or a CloTer Sod.
The report of the weight- of stubble
and roots on a clover field after the
last crop had been taken off in the
a itumn, as found in the experimental
.farm of the late John B. Lawes at
Rothamstead, England, ' as often been
publishe'd," but lt" has been so long
since we have seen it that it will
probably be new to.many of oui; read-,
ers. They found In the stubble and
waste on the surface of the ground
2669. pounds per acre. In the first-nine'
inches below the surface 3017'potfnds.
In the next nine Inches 275 po'uh?s,
and in the third nine inches, 191
pounds, br in all 6152 pounds. Accord
ing to analysis this vegetable.matter
would have enough phosphoric acid
for more than two average crops,'
enough nitrogen for more than four
average, crops, and r Jtash enough for
more than six average crops of wheat.
Thus we can see the value of a clover
sod plowed under for the wheat or
corn crop. If the clover, which, pro-,
duced 5000 pounds of hay to the acre,
' had been plowed In that would, have.
, addr?d 108 pounds of nitrogen, 28
pounds of phosphoric acid, 97 1-2
pounds of potash, 96 pounds of lime
and 34 1-2 pounds of magnesia, but
it would certainly be more profitable
to feed out the clover to animals and
save th?lr excrements to use .on the.
. land.-American Cultivator.

Rhode Island Agricultural Experiment
The* Wattes on American Farms.
-American" farmers' are the most
wasteful in the world, and American
farming the most wasteful business
in our wast? ful country. They waste
land by kneing many acres unused
on which they waste money by pay
ing taxes. They waste their crops by
leaving 9, large portion to.die and dry
up in the fields, or they leave their
grain standing until wasted by wind,
rain, insects' and." fungi, br shock it
and ldave it to -..ike-the., weather as
it comes. They waste seed after sav
ing to feeding It in a wasteful man?
nen- They waste fertility of their
I fleldft.Jij careless methods of cropping,
while the home "supply of mapure is
permitted to waste by means of sun
and rain. They waste their substance
by buying on credit /.for which privi
l?ge they- pay a liberal "tax in over
charge) or borrowing money for which
they have to pay Interest as well as
They waste tools and implements
by leaving them exposed to weather,
and then must further waste valuable
tim.e working ine'ffectlve tools. Waste
is found in the kitchen and in every
department of the household as well
ai in. the fields apd barns. The s -access
of German farmers, Chinese farmers
or farmers from any other country is
mainly attributable to their practice
of a system of farm, economy, learned
where economy br starvation were al
ternatives. Here the alternative is not
so exacting. It is merely economy or
comparative poverty.' In this country
a'farmer maylive n?nd emerge from the
.year's business "wi tb out actual loss,and
at the same time waste enough ?to feed
a foreigner or several horses, or
enough to fatten a beef or two, or
several hogs. Rigid economy may not
be actually imperative here, but it is
judicious.-Farm and Ranch.
To Kill WYe/U. . <
It is not quite safe to plunge into
the use of chemicals for the destruction
of weeds. It is possible to do more
"h?rm than .good. We have known some
fine trees, vines and shrubs, to be killed
by the careless use even of kerosene
and of common salt. Mr. L. R. Jones
names some solutions, with., directions
as to the strength' and nse, that are
worth preserving. "In fields," he says,
"weeds can usually be killed more
cheaply by cultivation or digging, and
chemicles used in sufficient amount
to destroy the weeds are liable to in
jure the grain. ?n exception to this
lies in the use of blue vitriol to de
stroy kale "in grain fields. It is said
that a 3 percent solution' of blue
vitriol in water sprayed over a weedy
grain field will kill the kale without
injury to the . grain. We have not
tested this ourselves as yet,- but pro
pose to do so this summer. The hawk
weed or paint-brush may form another
noteworthy exception, since it is
readily killed by sprinkling with salt
in an amount which does not in
jure the gr?ss. In general We advise
cultivation to destroy the hawkweed,
Chemicals may be used most advan
tageously in gravel walks, drives, ten
nis courts, paved gutters and similar
places. Common salt, applied dry, can
be used for the purpose, but it requires
so heavy an'application that it is liable
to' wash .into and Injure adjacent: grass
borders. Either of the following solu
tions are more effective than salt,
more enduring in their action and do
not wash." They may be applied with
a. watering pot at the rate ot.about eight.]
gallons to the square rod, and one
or at most two such applications dur
ing-the .season will entirely prevent
weed growth. ,
(a) Crude ?carbolic acid, one pint in |
fqur gallons. of water. This ls very
powerful and quick acting, but not
quite so lasting in effect as the next.
It;mfty be-objected^to on account of

WAYS. OF CATCHING COLD.
A^Physician Tells of the Dancer of Be.
corni nc Chilled or Damp.
The various ways in which a cold
may be brought on ?re thus .described
by a physician: "A little, knife, blade
of air blowing in through a cracr in
a window upon "some part of the body
.will chill that part, and the blood.ves
sels of that region will become, con
tracted, affecting, somewhere in the in
terior of the bpdy an afea In reflex
relation with this portion of the sur
face ot the body'. '.
"For. instance, the blood vessels of
the skin of the top of the shoulders
and the chest are associated with the
blood vessels of the lungs, so that
whatever happens to the blood ves
sels of the skin of the shoulders and
chest happens also to the blood ves
sels of the lungs. If there is a contrac
tion of the blood vessels of the baek
of the neck, there will be a contraction
of- , the blood vessels of the
top of . the shoulders and the
shoulder blades there will also
be a contraction of the blood vessels
of the lungs. When the influence of
the cold is continued, this contraction
is followed by congestion.
"When one puts his hands into cold
water for a few minutes, they are first
pale and then red. This is reaction.
The longer the application and the
more intense the degree of cold the
greater will be the contraction and the
.congestion. So if the back of the
neck is exposed for a long time to the
influenc? of cold, one is likely to have
a cold in the. nose and throat If the
shoulder blades and the tops of thc
shoulders are exposed, one is likely to
take cold in the lungs and suffer' from
congestion of the lungs. If the' cold
.is long continued, it may cause not
only a. congestion, but ah inflammation
of the nose or the lungs., ;
"So if the bottoms of the feet be
come wet or chilled a weakness' of the
bladder may result if there has ever
been a trouble there? or a weakness
of the stomach if 'there has boen a
catarrh'bf that organ.

THE DUTY OF MOTHERS.
What suffering frequently results
from a mother's ignorance ; or more
frequently from a mother's neglect tc
properly instruct her daughter !
Tradition says "woman must suf
fer, " and young vromen are so taught.
? There is a little truth and a great deal
of exaggeration in this. If a young
woman suffers severely she needs
treatment, and her mother should see
that she gets it.
Many mothers hesitate to take their
daughters to a physician for examina
tion ; but no mother need hesitate to
write freely about ncr daughter or
herself to Mrs. Pinkham and secure
the most efficient advice without
charge. Mrs. Pinkham's address is
Mrs. August Pfalzgraf, of South
Byron, Wis., mother of the young lady
whose portrait we here publish, wrote
Mrs. Pinkham in January, 1699, saying
her daughter had suffered for two
years with irregular menstruation -
had headache' all the time, and pain in
her side, feet swell, and was generally
miserable. Mrs. Pinkham promptly
replied with advice, and under date of
March, 1899, the mother writes again
that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound cured her daughter of all
pains and irregularity.

Pinkham's great medicine for regu

Some bright Nev/ York woman a
few years ago spent the winter on the
Florida coast and noticed that the
inner bark of the palmetto bore a
rough resemblance to an animal's fur.
She secured a number of pieces, and
in her idle moments painted flowers,
leaves, and other patterns in oil
colors upon the shaggy surface. When
she returned to her home in New
York City she decorated her boudoir,
and for many' weeks was the recipient
of congratulations and amicable envy.
The idea was so pleasing that it start
led a small traffic in the bark, which
has kept on ever since. The pieces
can now be secured in many sizes,
some three feet wide and eight and
ten feet long; but most are two by
four or three by six. They take paint
in about the feame way as plush or
Canton flannel, the globules of the
paint adhering to the ends of the
hairlike fibres, and seldom permeat
ing the body of the bark. The color
ranges from dark maroon to sepia, and
umber, and makes an admirable back
ground for dadoes and striking wall
surfaces for country houses. The
bark is singularly free from all in
sect life.-New York Commercial

Decadence et an Overcoat.
"Where do the old overcoats go?" la
a query that ls a natural successor to
the old riddle, "Where do the flies go
In winter?" The old overcoats seem
somehow to fade away, no one knows
just how. The overcoat starts its
career oil the back of its ov/ner who
paid $45 for it. It keeps him warm
and shelters him from cold winds and
from storms until it commences to get
frayed at the edges and the pockets
are torn down the sides. Then the
owner uses the coat for rainy days
only, and no more does he take it to
call on his fiancee or to recline on the
back of a chair while he is reading at
the club. He keeps it another sum

when he takes it out in the fall it has
holeB here add there.
So the owner gives it to the janitor
-if the janitor is not a cold, haughty
man, and the janitor wears it awhile
until his Wife gives it to the tramp
who Wheeled out the three barrels of
ashes. The tramp wears it until the
old coat commences to fall apart. Then
he gives it to another tramp, and it
falls apart still more. And then, some
day, the coat has entirely disappeared.
No one-lcnows how or when. The coat
just simply faded away. That's all
anybody knows about it.-Chicago Tri
