Profit in Farming.
Farming does not give the largest
profit compared with many other in
dustries, but it affords more security
to those who invest in that direction
than any other, as one who owns a
farm without encumbrance has an op
portunity to apply,his labor, and labor
itself is capital, the combination of
iarm and labor being really the union
of capital and labor. It is true that
during some years the farmer will
make little or no profit, but he has the
opportunity of producing a sufficiency
for his own use and is not compelled
to pay rent. Another point is that
a well-cultivated farm becomes more
valuable every year, as a large propor
tion of the profit is stored in the soil.
To I eeil Hoc? Clover Hny."
A Massachusetts reader wants to
know how to feed hogs on clover hay
as the bulk of the food and at .the
same time keep them in growing con
Probably the best plan would be to
cut the hay and feed it as a slop in
conjunction with ground grain. The
hay should bc steamed, but if you
have noj; the facilities to do this pour
boiling hot water on It and after stir

Corn, oats and clover hay in equal
parts ought to make a good ration for
the average hog, and they should be
fed three times a day as much as they
will cat up clean.-New York Weekly
Hen? Tetter Tlmn Cow?.
It is usually said that it requires
four acres of ground to accomodatc
one cow, and the average yearly profit
about S20, to say nothing of the long
hours and hard work in milking and
caring for the cow. This makes a
profit of $5 an acre; a poor showing,
we think, when compared with the
faithful old hen. An acre of ground
will furnish the food for 50 hens, the
profits from which will far exceed that
of the cow. The secret of success
with poultry lies in faithful application
of common sense methods, and no man
need say he cannot make poultry pay.
Every day we see examples of what
can be done; and though we also see
failures, a cause can always be found.
Home and Farm.
CoinpnrUon of Hay nnd Tariaro.
Does it pay to use a pasture; that
is, will a larger profit be derived from
cows that are given exclusively the
use of a pasture, or will the same land
pay more if used" for producing hay?
The Michigan Experiment station
found, after repeated tests, that about
four times as much food could be ob
tained from a meadow by allowing it
to produce kay than by pasturing it,
which means that four cows can bc
kept on the land where only one can
be kept by pasturing it. One of the
drawbacks against using the land for
hay, however, is that considerable la
bor is required in mowing, curing and
storing the hay, while the cows on the
pasture perform the labor. Also that
cows given green food as pasturage
produce more milk in the summer sea

HeKfrnction of Western Range?.
Being born and raised ir. the heart
of the range west of the Rocky moun
tains, and having observed from year
to year the destruction of the feed
upon these ranges by the immense
herds of cattle, sheep and horses, I am
constrained to write a word regarding
this destruction. Twenty-five years
ago the valleys and mountains of
Idaho, Nevada and Utah were waving
with rich grasses, enough being pro
duced every year to feed more head of
cattle than has ever been grazed on
It in any five years, providing it had
been fed as stock is fed on any good
farra. We cannot term it destruction
where grass is consumed by thc stock
turned into beef, mutton or horseflesh,
but when the grass is eaten and the
roots trodden out and the ground left
barren it is destruction. I have ob
served that cattle will graze on a
range from year to year and there will
be little damage done to the roots of
the grass, but with horses and sheep
it is not the case. Horses eat the
grass to the very roots, exposing them
to the hot sun, and the roots die.
Sheep do not eat grass when they
can get weeds that they like, but woe
to the range that they traverse. As
I write I look upon Mount Cuddy and
see great clouds of dust rising. If
you could be transported to the scene
on the mountain side you would see
some 2000 sheep in a drove traveling
along the mountain in the cool of the
morning eating their breakfast. They
nip a little on this bush and a little
cn that one, while under their feet is
being trodden the rich grasses, which
they seldom touch. This brand of
sheep will tramp and uproot the grass
until it becomes too hot to travel, then
they will take refuge beneath the
brush and trees until evening, when
they will again begin their march of
destruction, treading out thousands of
acres of grass during one summer.
This has gone on from year to year,
until now the mountains and valleys
of the far west lie brown and barren .
in the scorching sun. Not even a
sheep can exist in many of these once
beautiful grassy plains.-F. I,. Fenth
erston, In Practical Farmer.
Apple* on the TreBi
The risk which Speculators ?hd
dealers are Willing tb take in buying
apples oh the trees and attending to
the harvesting and selling themselves
not infrequently proves a great boon
to the grower. In large apple-growing
regions it is rapidly becoming the cus
tom for farmers to sell their apples in
this way, and if one studies the ques
tion of values, and knows how to cal
cite the worth of his fruit on the ,
ti" . it is a good thing to dispose of ,
thc iples in this way. The purchas- j
ing -npanies are generally able to ?
mak ^tter arrangements for trans- ,
port?. with the railroad companies ,
.than individual farmer, and they .
also en oy a small army of expert
picker*; ad packers who accompany |
them from one orchard to another.
They can consequently pick and pack
apples at less expense than the farm
er who must depend upon whatever
help he can secure in the harvest sea
son. More than this, the speculators
who buy the apples on the trees know
better how to distribute the products.
The apples are carefully sorted by
them in different grades. It might
prove a useful lesson to any grower
to study their methods. First, there
come the choice apples for export or
the fancy city trade. These are select
ed with the greatest care and packed
carefully, often being wrapped in in
dividual tissue paper. For a barrel of
such apples a packer told me he .ex
pected to receive $5 and $G in ordinary
times. Very few farmers could secure
?such prices. The demand is, of course,
limited, and the purchasers are hard
to find by the average shipper. It is
the experience of the men who make
a business of handling the apple crop
that helps them to secure these ex
The next grade of fruit is ordinary
prime, which usually represents the
grade called fancy in the ordinary
market. These apples are also care
fully picked and packed, but not
i wrapped in paper. They command all
the way from $3 to $4 per barrel. Then
below them are the good and choice
j fruits, which sell for about $2 a barrel.
In markets when apples are scarce,
these speculators ship another grade,
which passes as common to ordinary,
and they may sell from $1.50 to $2.50
per barrel, according to market condi
tions. Anything below, these are
packed up any way and shipped to
some factory, where the apples are
dried, and the poor sorts made into
jelly.'.Sometimes the large apple spec- .
uiators have their own canning, dry
ing and jelly factories, which they
keep running with the fruits they can
not dispose of satisfactorily in the
market. In this way there is no
waste. Every apple is quickly sent to
market or the factory when thc farm
er would lose.
They can and often do pay more for
the fruit on the trees than the grower
could get for it if he picked, packed
and shipped it himself; but as said In
j the beginning, one must know the val
I ue of his apples on the trees. The
I apple speculators are not offering
j more money for the fruit than they
! are worth; it is for the glower t? nnd

Wheat Farming nnd Soil Fertility.

I fOOd^K-T-***"1-*^ jT^
'l -^Second-When wheat? Hff&T^rown in
a rotation with clover and oats, five
crops of wheat being removed in eight
years, larger yields per acre were se
cured, and the total loss of nitrogen
from the soil was reduced to 800
! pounds, or about 450 pounds in excess
J of that utilized as plant food. When
! corn was grown with clover and oats
in a rotation, and farm manure waa
used, the total loss of nitrogen from
the soil for eight years was less than
100 pounds in excess of that removed
as plant food.
Third-When oats and barley were
grown continuously the losses of nitro
gen from the soil were nearly as large
as with wheat.
Fourth-When corn was grown con
tinuously the loss of nitrogen from the
soil was less than half as large as
with wheat. When corn is introduced
into a rotation the losses of nitrogen
are less than if wheat is grown.
Fifth-When wheat was grown con
! tenuously there was an annual loss cf
over 2000 pou.ids an acre of humus,
due to the fermentation and decay of
animal and vegetable matter. When
wheat was grown in a rotation with
clover and oats no material loss of
humus from the soil occurred..
Sixth-The loss of humus changed
the physical properties of the soil,
causing it to be less retentive of mois
ture, lighter in color and heavier in
weight per cubic foot. During drouths
the soil from the continuous wheat cul
tivated plot contained less water than
the soil from the plot which produced
wheat in rotation with clover. Humus
conserves the moisture of the soil,
while the rotation of crops, the use of
farm manures and the growing o?
clover conserve the humus of the soil.
Seventh-When bare summer fal
lowing is practised a heavier loss of
nitrogen occurs than when wheat is
grown continuously. Summer fallow
ing favors the decay of the humus and
the loss of nitrogen. While larger
crops of wheat are produced after a
year of fallow, this increase is fol
lowed by a heavy loss of the total ni
trogen of the soil. Summer fallowing
rapidly exhausts the soil of its nitro
Eighth-When the nitrogen and hu
mus of the soil were conserved by
the rotation of crops and the produc
tion of clover, an increase of 20 bush
els per acre of corn and 56 bushels ol
wheat were secured.
Ninth-Wheat is not an exhaustive
crop when it is grown in a rotation,
but when it is grown continuously the
fertility of the soil is impaired. It is
not the crop itself that reduces the
fertility, but it is the lack of syste
matic methods of farming which caus
es the decline of fertility. Old wheat
soils readily recuperate when some
humus forming materials are returned
to the soil. By the rotation of crops, i
the use of farm manures and the culti
vation of clover the heavy losses of
nitrogen and humus from the soil can
be checked, and larger yields and a
better quality of wheat secured.-Con- i

To Hang Pictures.
In hanging pictures remember that
oil paintings look best when hung the
usual way-sloping in from the top of
the wall to the bottom-but that etch
ings, water colors and line drawings
look better hung flat against the wall.
No picture should he hung so high
that it is uncomfortable to look at,
though pictures of large design or bril
liant coloring look better hung high up
than down low. A picture with
Ehadows should have thc light side
nearest the window when possible, so
that the shadows will fall naturally.
The stiff effects of "pairs" or "com
panion" pieces should not be tolerated.
There should be no set plan. Pictures
appear most artistic when those of
dissimilar size, shape and subject find
place on corresponding parts of the
wall. Mouldings are much better to
hang pictures from than nails in the
wall, and when suspended from the
moulding any number of wire picture
cords can be hung from the same
brass picture holder.-American Queen.
Brooms Unit Sweep Clean.
For hardwood or stained floors and
those covered with matting a hair
broom should bc used. The hardwood
floors need to be dusted after sweep
ing. A very easy way of doing this
is to make a Canton flannel bag of
some dark color and tie it over a
common broom. A vigorous rubbing
with this covered broom will add con
siderable polish to a dim floor. Fo/
wiping floors heavy Canton flannel
makes a good clcth. Cut a convenient
size and overcast thc edges coarsely.
This is also an excellent plan for clean
ing paint. Dusters made of cheesecloth
with the hems run in are soft to use
and wash easily. Old India or foulard
silk is tne best thing I have ever tried
for bric-a-brac and small articles. All
dusters should be washed and dried af
ter using. There is nothing gained by
using a cloth filled with dust. It will
not make anything clean. 'If brooms,
both large and small, arc often washed
and uried, then turneo up on their
handles, they will sweep cleaner and
last longer. There should be a con
venient place for keeping brooms, dust
pans and cloths. It will save many
steps if a sei is kept on each floor.

Some Tacts About Hollins: "Water.

that it can be said to boil; and the

difficult to determine when the last

of Syrup of Figjs is due todita ^asagtjform^
objectionable quality or substance and to the fact that it acts gently and truly
as a laxative, without in any way disturbing the natural functions. The
requisite knowledge of what a laxative should be and of the best means for its
production enable the California Fig Syrup Co. to supply the general demand
for a laxative, simple and wholesome in its nature and truly beneficial in its
effects; a laxative which acts pleasantly and leaves the internal organs in a
naturally healthy condition and which does not weaken them.
To assist nature, when nature needs assistance, it is all important that the
medicinal agents used should be of the best quality and of known value and Syrup
of Figs possesses this great advantage over all other remedies, that it does not
weaken the organ.:; on which it acts and therefore it promotes a healthful con
dition of the bowels and assists one in forming regular habits. Among its many
excellent qualities may be mentioned its perfect safety, in all cases requiring a
laxative, even for the babe, or its mother, the maiden, or the wife, the invalid,
or the robust man.
Syrup of Figs is well known to be a combination of the laxative principles
of plants, which act most beneficially, with pleasant aromatic liquids and the
juice of figs, agreeable and refreshing to the taste and acceptable to the system,
when its gentle cleansing is desired. The quality of Syrup of Figs is due not
only to the excellence of the combination, but also to the original method of
manufacture which ensures perfect purity and uniformity of product and it is
therefore all important, in buying, in order to get its beneficial effects, to note
the full name of the Company-California Fig Syrup Co.-printed on the front
of every package.
