ease-proof plants and trees, so-called-,

variety of pear, grape, cherry, apple,
peach, gooseberry or other fruit is

so susceptible to disease as others, h'K
if within range of disease 'hey will
surely be attacked.
To Preserve the Currants.
September is the best month in the
year to renew the currant t??nlatiOh
from cuttings er from division of new
stools Old stools may be carefully
removed and divided, so as to retain
vigorous, healthy wood and roots.
These should be cut back somewhat,
and planted at once in freshly pre
parea garden soil, where they can be
billed up heavily for winter.

Cottonseed meal contains about 7
pu* cent of nitrogen, and the farmers
buy it .sometimes in their fertilizers.
If they will use more cottonseed and
linseed meal as foods for stock they
will derive a profit therefrom and
have a large portion left in the man
ure. The cheapest way to use either
cottonseed or linseed meals is to make
neat, milk, butter, eggs and grain
from these raw materials.
Bran ls Richer.
In one ten of corn there are about
36 pounds of nitrogen, ?4 pounds phos
phoric acid and 8 pounds potash. In
a ton of bran there are 53 pounds ni
trogen, 58 pounds phosphoric acid and
22 pounds potash. The bran is ctn
sequently much richer than corn in
those elements, and it will pay to sell
corn and buy bran. To save all plant
foods there should be attention given

then plow the land, applying bone meal

In the .?pring the ground may be used

To Keep Onions.
To keep onions over winter put them
in.a dry location, such as a barn loft,
and spread them on a floor or on
shelves in thin layers. If they should
happen to freeze it will not damage
them, provided they are not disturbed
when frozen. They should be covered
with sheets of paper in order to assist
in preventing sudden thawing, but us
ually if the layers of onions are not
too thick and the location is dry they
will keep without difficulty.
A Garden Hint.
It Is sometimes claimed that a gar
den becomes too rich, and that it pro
duces an enormous growth of vine,
with but little seeds or fruit. The
difficulty is that the garden contains
an excess of some kind of plant foods.
Rotate the crops or make the garden
in a new location, growing corn, pota
toes and cabbage successively on the
old location when it may be used as a
garden plot again. It is doubtful, how
ever, if a garden can be too rich.
Tomato worms are frequently seen
with numerous small white objects
adhering to them, which are the eggs
of pupae of parasites which prey upon
the worms. Tomato worms thus, at
tacked should not be destroyed. If
farmers viii take pains to thus make
the distinction they will propagate the
friendly parasites to do the work of
destructicn among insects more ef
fectually than in any other manner.
We should learn to know the insect
friends from foes and protect them.
A New Way ol' Cutting Buckwheat.
A new way of cutting buckwheat
which came under my observation last
year, seems worthy the consideration
cf buckwheat raisers as a time and
labor saver os well as an improve
ment on the quantity of the grain. In
stead of cutting it with a cradle and
letting it lie before raking and gath
ering up, the buckwheat was cut with
a binder and the sheaves were gath
ered up and placed standing in one
corner of the field, so that the sheaves
did not touch each other. The bands
were then cut with a knife and the
grain was allowed to stand until it was
thoroughly dry, when it was hauled

Not iong ago I had occasion to cross
the adjoining pastures of two large
dairy farms with natural conditions
about alike. ~ On one there was a
large amount of hardhack, while on the
other there was only an occasionally
small shrub to be seen.
On the first there had beea no at
tempt made to check or destroy the
growth, buf I found on enquiry that
on the other thorough werie had been
made in pulling up the bushes in the
fall a few years since. It must have
been pretty thorough, too, and effect
uai to hardly ?eave a trace behind.
Perhaps the fall pulling was what did
the business, similar to that of cutting.
It is well worth trying again.--B. R.
When the land has been plowed ta
the fall the farmer sometimes objects
to cross-plowing the field early in
the season because the hardy Weeds
put in an appearance almost before
frwt leaves the ground. This is in
favor of the farmer, if he will give
the subject the proper view, as h? can
destroy the weeds by loosening l? the
soil allowing warmth to tenter, thus
forcing the weeds to germinate, so as
to destroy them before the seeding Of
grain is done. The earlier the V?ee.?s
can be started the fSVvef there will bo

Many patientts wh?".n ofdef?d ? milk

The objection to "tho tnete can alway?

perseverance1 .there ?r? few persons
who. ehnhb? mgest a^more or less ex

weeks if the milk is properly given.
Their previous unfavorable experience
is probably due to having a large dose
of undiluted milk which soured, e??g;

When the milk diet is necessary;

Sometimes patients dislike the taste
of raw milk or tire bf it; This may be
easily overcome by flavoring It In a
variety of ways. A few teaspoonfuls
of blac.c coffee is one of tho best
means 11 hand. Very weak tea may
be preferred. Caramel, or ginger is
another scellent flavoring substance

patients may take a little chocolate

Telephones help td Catch horse
'Telephones are coming in handy to
catch h'drs'e thieves," said George C.
French. "They have not been used so
much in Milwaukee as In the smaller
cities cf this and other states. There,
when the robbery of a horse is re
ported, the sheriff telephone? to the'
farmers on every road, and so many
farmers have 'phones now that this la
practicable. After every farmer has
been given a description of the stolen
horse, it is pretty difficult for the thief
td escape, for he must pass out of the
city over some country road, and many
captiues have been made in this way."
The Climate of Manchuria.
The St. James's Gazette says: "The
rainy season in southern Manchuria is
not so bad as it has been represented
to be. Residents of long experience
state that while there are days In
which heavy falls of rain take place,
there are not many consecutive days
in which torrential rains are experi
enced. When a really heavy downpour
of rain of some hours' duration oc
curs it is almost invariably followed
by three or four weeks of splendid,
dry, bracing weather. There is no
finer summer climate in the world
that that of southern Manchuria. The
temperature in the shade is seldom
above 88 degrees."
