The God of Love.
It ls not gold of rippled hair,
Like cornfields swept by winds at play;
It ls not cheeks as fresh and fair
As apple bloom at dawn of day.
It ls not these that sing to Love,
And bid him wake so sure, so soon;
That set the skies alight above, .
And set him crying for the moon.
It ia not heart-gold, pure and bright
As virgin gold in hidden seams;
It is not soul as clear and light
As sunrise In a poet's dreams.
It Is not these that give Love food
.And drink-the magic wine and bread,
That set. amid his solitude.
The enchanted garland on his head.
Love only knows one god' sublime,
The trinity In unity;
And the god's names are Space and Time
And-Opportunity.

Salting Stock.
No one knows how much the larger
percent of stock suffers for the want of
salt regularly. In order that you may
not forget to salt them, follow this
plan. Plant a post in a corner of
each field containing stock. On top of
the post nail a little box, in the bottom
near the post and in the lid of which
bore some gimlet holes. Now fill the
box with salt and it will run down the
post into little cups that you may cut
with a chisel. This ?3 only fer small
herds.
To Lay Corn By.
Corn should be cultivated until it is
almost ripe, provided it is cultivated
properly, and especially in dry seasons.
But cultivation should be on the sur
face. Now try this plan and see how
much it will benefit your corn in dry
weather. Take a mowing machine
wheel, abcut six inches less in diame
ter than the width of your planter,
hitch a horse to it and drag flat once
between the rows. If the ground is in
good condition you will findjthis will
be very hard on young weeds and very
good for the corn.-Lewis S. Alter, in
The Epitomist.
Advantage of Cut Fodder.
A rather notable test has been made
by the Wisconsin experiments station
with feeding cut and uncut fodder, and
the effect upon milk production. The
feeding of the whole or uncut fodder,
as stated by Hoard's Dairyman, was
as follows:
"A given quantity cf milk was pro
duced by feeding 1333 pounds of whole
stalks, whereas to produce the same
quantity of milk under similar con
ditions required only 721 pounds of cut
fodder-but little over half the amount
of material."
This is a very marked difference and
it should attract attention of feeders.
Cold Storage Experience.
Where you wish to carry apples for
any length of time, I should say that
the advantage was all on the side of
cold storage. One trouble we found in
cold storage with our fruit has been
that on taking it out it is not highly
colored. Our fruit has all been put in
storage ia rather green condition, as
much so as we eau.
We commence picking about the
first of October, putting them at once
in cold storage, and continue until
about the twentieth, sometimes until
the first of November. Before that
fruit is shipped there is a great con
trast with that which is kept in ordin
ary storage because of not being as
highly colored. But there is nc com
parison in export trade. Those apples
that seemed as hard as bricks last
spring and looked inferior to some in
cold storage, though in some respects
better, in the course of transportation
and the heat they had to endure in the
steamer, colored up, and, our agents
say, went on the market in prime
condition. So that one wants to be
careful in experting not to export too
late in the se?son.T^. M. Hcoker in
The Massachusetts Ploughman.
Clearing thc Fields. '
Before commencing fall plowing the
fields should be gone over, and if there
are.any obstructions that vf&l-be in
the way of good and thorough work,
they should, as far as possible and
practicable, be removed.
On farms where stones abound it
often takes a long time to get them
all removed or out cf the way of good
cultivation, while some are too for
midable to undertake to do anything
with.
It is often on the best land that these
obstructions are found, and it is a
praiseworthy undertaking to get them
out of the way. Powder and dynamite
will readily break in pieces many of
these' large rocks that would otherwise
have to remain.
A farmer should never plow under a
crop of small loose stones. Remove
them every time before plowing if any
are on the surface, and after where
turned up by the plow.
On stony farms there will be one
difficulty in getting two crops-of
stones-by plowing twice in a season.
Those who have good farms, free from
these obstructions, are indeed fortu
nate and know little of the hard and
often discouraging work required to
clear a stony field and render lt suit
able for easy and good cultivation.
On some farms there are still left
the remains of a once vigorous pine
forest growth, in the shape of im
mense stumps that seem to defy the ac
tion of the elements, and persist in
remaining in their original beds "safe
and sound" for generations. These
must be about as difficult to remove as
the rocks on a stony field, but it is a
work that should be done where the
land is of sufficient value to warrant
the cost.-E. R. Towle, in the Massa
chusetts Ploughman.
Harvesting the Potato Crop.
Throughout New England the po
tato blight was prevalent again in
1904, and complaint came from nearly
every direction that the crop was rot
ting.. This seemed to be the case even
where potatoes were sprayed. Upon
the farm of Connecticut agricultural
college, the potatoes were sprayed six
times with bordeaux, a 6-row sprayer
being used in the work. In spite of
this, they have blighted, and the vines
are now dead.
We still have faith in bordeaux, but
believe that it must be applied in a
much more thorough way than it can
be with an automatic potato sprayer.
We have three rows of potatoes which
have been carefully sprayed by hand
throughout the season. At each spray
ing care was taken to see that the
liquid covered every part of the vines.
These potatoes are_stlll green and
show no signs of blight whatever.
Hand spraying is too expensive for
general practice in potato raising.
The question of immediate impor
tance is, what shall we do with the
potatoes now in the ground? Shall we
dig them at once and sell them, shall
we dig them and store them, or shall
we leave them in ground until as late
as possible, and then dig? To dig
them at the present time will not pre
vent t.heL rotting.
The potatoes already affected with
blight will rot even though they are
dug and put in storage, and it is far
more economical for the farmer to let.
them rot in the ground and thus save
the expense of digging and sorting. If
the potatoes are left in the ground un
til the middle of October, those which
are affected with the rot will very
'argely have disappeared, and thnse
.vhich are left will be the healthy and
?ound ones. The expense of harvest
ing will be diminished at least by half.
If no cellar can be secured in which
to store the potatoes thay can be stored
In the field. Late .In November, when
the ground ls ireezln/r sliKhtly ?verv
night, ?s the time to bank the potato**.'
While the ground is frozen so that
there Is a crust of an inch or two of
frozen earth on the surface, a layer of
straw six to eight inches thick should
be spread on tills frozen earth. Upon
.the straw the potatoes should be plied,
with not more than 50 busheds in a
pile. Straw then should be covered
over the potatoes, after which a layer
of dirt should be put on. This dirt
covering at first need not be more
than four to six inches in thickness,
but as the cold increases care should
be taken that the potatoes are cov
ered heavily so that no danger from
freezing will result-L. A. Clinton in
N. E. Homestead. j
Be Careful of the Manure.
The Ohio experiment station esti
mates that about ten million tons of
manure is produced in that state each
winter, and that most of this quantity
is allowed to lie from three to nine
months in open yards before being
taken to the fields.
We have previously quoted experi
ments showing that under such ex
posure manure will shrink practically
one-half in weight. Not only ls there
this great loss in quantity where the
manure is left exposed for a long time
before being taken to the field, but
the Ohio experiment station has been
conducting some experiments which
indicate that what is left has a less
fertilizing value per ton than when it
was fresh.
It has been very generally supposed
that a much greater immediate effect
wouid be obtained from well-rotted ma
nure than from an equal amount of
green manure, but these experiments,
based on seven years' trials, seem to
contradict this opinion.
Tho trials were made with a three
year rotation of corn, wheat and clover,
using three set3 of plots, so that each
crop was represented each year. The
same quantity of manure, eight tons
per acre every third year, was applied
in each case, and as regards any dif
ference in quality that might have
arisen from the character of the feed
used the advantage is stated to have
been in favor of the yard manure.
The crops were valued at a third of
a dollar per bushel for corn, two
thirds of a dollar for wheat, three
dollars per ten for corn stover, two
dollars per ton for straw and six and
two-thirds dollars a ton for clover
hay. On this basis] the average annual
increase for the stall manure over the
yard manure amounted to $5.15 per
acre.
This difference in quality, according
to the above results, would alone
amount to some $19,000,000 annually
for the state of Ohio. Add to this the
loss from shrinkage in quality due to
exposure and we have a result that is
appalling.
We presume there are few states in
the middle and western portions of
our country where any greater at
tention is given to the care of the
manure than is given the matter in
Ohio. The loss that the whole country
sustains from this source is beyond
conception. Add to this the manure
that is burned, dumped into ravines
to get it out of the way, or washed
away through the yards being located
on steep banks near streams, and the
wonder is that our lands continue to
produce as well aa they do.
What a legacy for future genera
tions- we^are preparing by our waste
ful methoa^K. This robbery of their
heritage remindVusjDf a recent occur
rence in Iowa where "a-h^nker robbed
a bank of money belonging- to de=
positors. The son learned of the de
falcation but kept it to himself, hoping
to retrieve the fortunes of the bank
and make good the loss of its creditors.
After years of patient effort he gave
up in despair and went and drowned
himself. The impoverished soil, like
the impoverished bank,' will prove an
uphill road for those who come after.
-Prairie Farmer.
WHY RUSSELL WAS GOOD.
Had to Be or the Other Scholars
Would Have Licked Him.
.Russell was usually a good boy in
school, but on this particular day he
could not study. His mind persisted
in wandering, and his hands in dodg
ing about to work mischief. He did
not mean to disobey his teacher, for
he was very fond of her. But after he
had been corrected several times he
heard the stern voice of Miss Black
pronounce his doom:
"Russell, come to my desk. Nov/
stand just so."
Then Miss Black took down the
long ruler. Once, twice, three times
fell the stick. Then a little cry came
not from Russell, but from the teach
er, and she grew deadly pale. She
had hurt her wrist. Russell was sent
to his seat, and soon the school was
dismissed for recess.
The 10 minutes were up. The girls
were all in their seats, but no boys.
What was keeping *he boys so long
in the basement? Presently a proces
sion, headed by the weeping Russell,
filed up the stairs and into the school
room.
"Russell, are you still crying be
cause I punished you?" the teacher
asked, in reproachful tones.
Then, to her surprise, the biggest
boy spoke up: "He's crying 'cause we
thumped him in the basement 'cause
he hurt you."
The rest of the day Russell was a
model boy. At the close of school in
the afternoon Miss Black spoke very
kindly to him, and told him she was
pleased that he had ended the day
with such good behavior.
From a dozen throats in concert
came the explanation: "Yes, he had
to be good for you, 'cause we told
him if he wasn't we'd lick him again
after school."-Youth's Companion.

"What! Did he tell you he would?"

HAD BEEN DEAD TWICE,
Russian Peasant Had PeculLr Claim
to Distinction.
It is commonly supposed that man
can die only once, hut an old Russian
peasant, named Samsonoff, who ex
pired recently in the village of Lot
oschka, at the age of 95, held a differ
ent opinion, boasting that he had been
dead twice and had come to life again.
His first demise took place during
the siege of Sebastopol, when he was
15. He was struck by a fragment of
?hell, picked up for dead, and thrown
Dn a heap of corpses awaiting burial.
After three days he regained his
senses, managed to free himself from
che bodies which had meantime ac
cumulated nu top of him, crawled to
the hospital, and was ultimately
cured.
In 1879, having reached the allotted
?pan, he died once more, this time
suddenly in his bed. Arrangements
were made for the funeral, but four
days after his decease he sat up in
bed and clamored for a. pipe. His
fleath certificates were proudly treas
ured, and served to convince him that
tie had actually expired on two occa
sions. He fell into a rage at the least
suggestion of a trance or lethargy.
When informed that he was about to
die for the third time, he received the
news with unconcern, hoping, in spite
of his ?;reat age, to revive once more.
This hope, however, was baseless, al
though every possible test was applied
before burial.
