Aiken, Special.-Frank Harris, an
old negro living near Batesburg, came
to Aiken with a pitiful story of mis
treatment at the hands t.'f A while

was somewhat tired mid the doctor
told him be would give ltira some
thing to relievo his fatigue. He gave
the negro a dose of something out of

To Start a Balky Hors?:
Take a rope about ?5 feet long; pass
around the foreleg and let drop down
below the fetlock joint. Take one end
in each hand walking ahead of the
horse while the driver starts him.
This will cause the horse to jump with
one leg on the ground, or take a step,
and when he does this he will forget to
stop again, and If the rope is dropped
he will likely walk over it .without
further trouble. If treated this way
a few times he will get so he will start
at sight of rope and it won't be neces
sary to use it In case he balks.
To Keep Flies Off Stock.
In the midst of the fly season own

the method successfully pursued by
Dr. Peters, veterinarian at thc Ne
braska Experiment station for com
bating the pest. He took an ordinary
oil barrel and put into it a wooden
spigot, using the barrel as a storage
tank. Two and a half gallons of
zenoleum, with five gallons of cotton
seed oil, were placed in the barrel
.and enough water added to fill it. As
required, the mixture thus formed
was drawn from the barrel and
sprayed upon cattle and horses, or
applied .with a sponge or cloth as oc
casion demanded. The control of the
flies was not only quite perfect, but
it had one marked advantage not pos
sessed by most other mixtures for
the purpose in that the solution waa
not greasy and stickjr, but left the
coat bf the animal in fi?e condition.
The mixture has the further advan
tage of being a very economical on,e
a barrel of it being compounded at a
very small cost.
?u?cessiVd Cropfl of Corri.
The modern methods of agriculture
teach that a rotation Of crops is essen
tial fof the best resdits and especially
is it necessary in order to keep up soil
fertility. A correspondent asks the
Indianapolis News, "How can you
recommend the rotation of crops so
strongly when experiment stations
grow corn year after year on the
same field?'' Our reader evidently
refers to the work of the New Jersey
experiment station, but either forgets
io refer to their ineth?ds or else is
not familial' with them. On this fa
mous farm the soil is kept in the
highest state of fertility by proper
methods, and while it is true that
corn follows corri; it is only because
clover is grown as well, the plan be
ing to sow crhhsoii clover at the last
cultivation of the corn, which is used
as green forage in the spring and
the corn stubble is plowed under,
and the same method agaiii followed.
If it were not for the high fertility of
this soil and tho growing Of the
crimson clover each ye?rj it would
not be possible to follow corn with
corn year after year with profit.
Look Well to the Poultry.
Whether thc young birds are being
raised to lay eggs later or for the
carcass market, they need good care
during the summer. It is not enough
that they bc turned onto thc range;
they must l'? carefully fed? sid that
they make thc proper growth; -This
is especially necessary with thc stock
that is being raised for laying pur
poses. Thc range is essential, but
no amount of grass will furnish all
the food thc growing chickens need.
Let them have a liberal feed of grain
in thc morning before they are let
out of tbc house and another at night
wheh they come h?rne to roost. This
will be all they heed If they have ft
good range except an abundance of
fresh clean Water and shade while on
the range. If one hi:-, a large num
ber of fowls, great care must be tak
en not only to have the poultry hous
es sweet and clean, b\it any portion
of the grounds where they Congregate
in any number ought also to be kept
clean, which is best done by spading
tip tho ground after scattering lime
over it. Do this several times dur
ing the summer, and there will bc lit
tle danger of disease In the flocks.
Morning Glory Vines.
Herc ii a description of a way of
training the morning glory when
grown for the purpose of screening
doors and windows. Whoever gives
it a trial this season will not neglect
io use it when another season comes.
Nail four pieces of lath, or any light
strips of wood, in a square large
enough across the top of the door or
wiudow you propose to shade. Then
nail two strips across from corner to
corner, io stiffen this frame and keep
it from getting out of shape, as il
easily would do if not braced as ad
vised. Fasten this to the top of the
dcor or windor.- frame, letting it slant
down at ar angle that will give the
amount of shade needed, with stout
ttrips reaching from the outside cor
ners to the ground below, to pro
vide substantial support, in case a
door is being treated, or to tho sill,
if a window is to be screened, ptretch
p.tcut strings from the ground whore
thc plants are growing to the frame
work at top of dom- or window. Tho
vines will soon cover strings and
frames with luxuriant growth, and by
thc middle of July you will havo a
floral awning that will be "a thing of
beauty" for months and a "joy as long
as it lasts."
The old system of boarding tfic
hired help ls in less favor than former
ly, owing in part to the undesirable
average quality of modern hired help.
With the advance in wages in other
employments it has become difficult
to hire men fit to be boarded and
housed with the family. In the East-'
ern States thc plan is gaining ground
of Ii iring gangs of foreigners, who are
housed In shanties, and who do their
own cooking and housekeeping. Farm
ers who do not employ enough labor
lc usc this plan arc in many cases put
tins n? cheap tenement houses or buy
ing abandoned houses in the neighbor
hood in which they can piaee a hired
man and his family. A much beitt-r
class of help can be obtained by this
plan than by almost any ether. The
undesirable quality of the average
hired man is a very serious consider
ation in the employment of farm help.
The manufacturer does not take his
hired, man into his home or bring him
into contact with his family, but the
farmer is obliged tc do so to some ex
teni by any plan. It is worth while,
to pay a little more and get a man
whose intelligence and morals make his
influence and presence satisfactory in
the farm family.-American Cultivator.
I believe In order to have best re
sults in dairying, three things are es
sential-good cows, good pastures and
pure water. The successful dairyman
must have the right kind of cows,
those that will turn their food in the
direction of producing a large supply
of rich milk. In order to do this, of
course, the dairy cow must be. sup
plied with the right kind of food.
The dairyman who expects to make a
good profit from his business should
strive to grow plenty of feeding Btuffs
for his cows, especially roughage upon
his farm, as good roughage is so much
more cheaply produced than grain the
farmer will easily see the wisdom of
furnishing a liberal supply of it. Our
farm pastures are always poor during
late summer and early fall and the
milk supply as a rule falls off greatly.
Hence it is important that special
crops should be put in to supply the
dairy cows with plenty of sweet, suc
culent, rough feed at this season of
the year. Oats and barley sown to
gether, equal parts, will furnish a.
large amount of pasture ' until killed
Give the cows plenty of balanced
feed and then you may be sure of a
good article of butter, io make a
success of dairying lise a cream sepa
rater and feed the milk while warm
to the pigs.
Sell you butter, if possible, to pri
vate customers, who are willing to
pay a good price for a first class arti
cle. Of course the best way to dis
pose of dairy products depends to a
great extent on where you are lo
cated and upon many other circum
stances.-M. A. M., for the Indiana
Mistakes in Spraying.
Each orchard is a local problem of
itself, and in order to get the best re
sults each must solve his own prob*
lem. Ko man will take as much in*
tere?t in an orchard as its owner
should; therefore, each man should
consider lils orchard an individual
local problem. An orchard has great
possibilities if properly protected and
cared for. It is under your care and
you are responsible for its produc
tiveness. Many sprayers make some
of the following mistakes after plan
ning that they will spray so many
times at certain periods:
First-They are not ready on time.
Second*-They do not mix the Bor
Third-They do not spray thorough
Fourth-They delay these sprayings,
especially the first and second; on
account of the ground being wet Of
because it is showery.
Of course no one can spray while lt
is actually raining, but there is no
excuse for not spraying between show
ers when it is a question of doing it
then or riot getting in your spray at
thc proper time. Many actually lose
their crop, s? far as quality is concern
ed, by Omitting the spray just after
th? bloom drops, because they say the
ground was too soft. Now, so far as"
litis soft ground is concerned, three
fourths or more who do neglect this
spraying period for that reason, could
save this by looking ahead. For in
stance, try boxing your wagon wheels,
making them from three to four inches
wider, You will be surprised to find
what heavy loads can be hauled over
soft ground when you use broad tired
wagons. If your wagons have broad
enough tires you can haul a tank full
of spray material over any soft ground
on which tl?e team will not mire down.

Teach the colt to draw loads by
Wearing shoes too long injures the
The chief point in colt education is
to treat them kindly.
Balky horses are often made by
overloading the colls.
. A good feed tor ducklings la made by
mixing cornmeal and bran, equal parts,
into a mush with milk.
Every poultry keeper should have
trap nests, as they will help him pick
out the hens that are working.
A little phosphate sprinkled around
cucumber, squash, or melon vines will
effectually keep the bugs away.
To prevent colds and roup put eight
or ten drops of tincture of aconite to
each gallon of drinking water twice
One of the reasons and probably the
main reason hens steal their nests out
is because (he nests in the poultry
house are not kept clean and comfort
If we want to give the foal the best
possible chance, the mare should not be
worked during the nursing season, but
many good foals are reared while their
dams are working every day.
Before placing eggs In the nest lt is
a good thing to sprinkle" insect powder,
sulphur or tobacco dust in it, as this
will keep away the lice and thc young
chicks will be free to start on.
The great demand for high class
horses should not tempt the man who
is satisfied with scrub stallions to go
into horse-breeding. Thc demand and
high pricer are only for horses of first
Carefully protect that nice thrifty
wood lol. Keep thc live stock out of
it and cut only such trees as are ma
ture, except where it is desirable io
thin them out. Make it one of the
beauty rpots of the farm.
In a ac where thc foal has to be ted
on cov.'s milk owing to thc death of
dan., or other causes, it should be re
duced one-third with water and a lit
tle sugar added, and the foal should
be led every two hours for the first
A good horse is the most sensitive of
a p'maJs, and feels an offense to his

.... Ai? Old Painter's Ideas.
The Autumn oeason ls coming
more and more to be recognized as a
moat suitable time for house-paint
There is no frost deep In the wood
to make trouble for even the best job
of painting, and the general season
ing of the Summer has put the wood
into good condition in every way.
The weather, moreover, is more like
ly to be settled for the necessary
length of time to allow all the coats
to thoroughly dry-? very important
An olti.?nd successful painter mid
td the writer the other day:
"House owners would get more
for their money if they would allow
their painters to take more time, es
pecially, between coats. Instead of
allowing barely time for the surface
to get dry enough not to be 'tacky,'
several days (weeks would not be
too much) should be allowed so that
the coat might set through and
through. It is inconvenient, of
course, but, if one would suffer this
slight -Inconvenience, it would add
two or three years to the life of the
"All this is assuming, of course,
that the paint used is the very best
to be had-the purest of white lead
and the purest of linseed oil, un
mixed with any cheapener. If the
cheap mixtures, often known as
'White Lead* and oil which has been
doctored with fish oil, benzine, corn
oil, or other of the adulterants
known to the trade, are used, all the
precautions of the skilled painter are
useless to prevent the cracking and
peeling which make houses unsightly
In a year or so and, therefore, make
painting bills too frequent and costly.
"The house oWner should have his
painter bring the ingredients to the
premises separately-white lead of
some well-known, reliable brand and
linseed oil of equal quality - and.
mix the paint just before applying
Painting need not be expensive and
unsatisfactory if the old painter's
suggestions are followed.
The young lawyer's first plea is
a trial performance.

HERITAGE OF CIVIL WAR.
Thousands of Soldiers Contracted
Chronic Kidney Trouble.
The experience of Capt. John L. Ely,
of Co. E, 17ih Ohio, now living at 500
East Second street, Newton, Kansas,
will interest the thoxt
sands of veterans who
came back from the
Civil War suffering tor
ta res with kidney com
plaint. Capt. Ely says:
"I contracted kidney
trouble during the Civil
War, and theoccaslonal
attacks finally devel
oped into ? chronic
case. At one time I had to use a
crutch and cane to get about. My
hack was lame and weak, and be
sides the aching; there was a dis
tressing retention of the kidriey se
cretions. I was in a bad way when
I began using Doan's Kidney Pills in
1501, but the remedy cured me, and
I have been well ever since."
