ATTEMPT TOO MUCH.
In starting into the poultry busi
ness the average man or woman is
apt to get too enthusiastic and at
tempt to do too much. The better
way is to start on a smajl scale and
enlarge as your experience z*A capa
bility will justify. The notion that
most everybody can make a success
of raising poultry on a large scale
has been disproved times without
number.-Farmers' Home Journal.
It is advisable to dip sheep twice
each year, in the spring and in the
fall. The spring dipping should be
done shortly after the shearing has
been done, at which time the lambs
Bhould also be dipped, as the ticks are
likely to leave the ewes and get on
the la.mbs after the former have been
sheared. In using the coal tar dips,
we have obtained better results by
using solutions that are recommended
In tho directions accompanying the
preparations. Dipping is the only
practical method of keeping the flock
safe from the ravages of ticks, lice
and scab.-Oklahoma Station.
BALANCED RATION WITH SILAGE
Wallace's Farmer says that the
profit in feeding corn silage depends
much upon the other feed with' it,
and says: The best balance we know
of for silage is clover or alfalfa hay.
In fact, we do not know any kind of
balanced ration that can be provided
so cheaply for dairy farmers, and to
a certain extent feeders of other cat
tle in the corn belt, as from thirty
five to forty pounds of silage aud
about eighteen to twenty pounds of
clover or alfalfa hay. This in itself
Bhould provide for the cow a fairly
well balanced ration. It is all grown
on the farm, and hence it is cheaper

NEW YORK STATE FARMS.
While the New York Stat? Bureau
of Agriculture has been in existence
only three, years, it has in that time
been Instrumental in the sale of $3,
000,000 worth of farms, which also
means their rehabilitation. It has
also sent out several thousand farm
laborers to those who need their as
sistance and maintained an office in
the State Agricultural Department to
attend to correspondence in relation
to tbr sale of farms and the'engage
ment of agricultural labor. It has
also advertised the opportunities for
farming in New York State, posting
notices in European districts which
send, the most desirable immigrants.
The latest bulletin contains a. list of
D36 farms, at prices varying from $20
to $50 an acre, and in some cases
smalb payments may be made. To
those who desire it, the State Bureau
will also furnish a scientific report
as to the products for which each
farm is best adapted.-Weekly Wit?'

If the ragweed has got the better
af your pasture you will have to let
it go this season. Turn it under just
when it is at its best, and add what
manure you can get during the fall
and winter. Next spring sow blue
grass on the field, and you will be
likely to get a good stand. Your
pasture is worn out, we think, or the
ragweed could not have got such a
start there. In good soil bluegrass
will hold the ground against any
thing. Ragweed is a fairly good fer
tilizer, and it is much better to let it
grow than to leave the ground bare.
Iron weeds must be grubbed out, but
they do not often grow with ragweed,
generally in low, wet ground.

Novel Medicine Chest.
One pf the most ingenious of inven
tions is the medicine chest designed
by a? Arkansas man. With this
chest there is no eccusc for a person
not taking his medicine on time or
Cor getting the medicines mixed. The
cabinet consists of a stand with two
little drawers at the upper"corners
and a desk portion on top. In front
of the desk portion is a little "door,
just about wide enough to admit a
bottle, and inside is a series of re
volving trays. One of these trays is
provided with numbers indicating
minutes, another with numbers indi
cating the hours of the day, and a
third with ordinals indicating the
hours, of the day and night. Each
tray is divided into little compart
ments at each hour, so that at a cer
tain hour a bottle in that compart
ment will be waiting at the door.
This is brought about by a clock
mechanism which operates the trays,
all cf which are connected to a shaft
ar.d moved by the clock, thc face of
which is visible in the front of the
stand. It now remains for the inven
tor to add an alarm attachment and
it will be practically impossible to
miss medicine time. - Washington

Thc device consists of a piece of metal
bent at the tcp to form two arms,
with the opening between them just
wide enough to admit the handle of a
spoon, inserted sideways, and with
the wide part just narrow enough to
keep the handle of the spoon from

the holder consists of a flat strip
which runs down inside the glass and
a spring clip on the back which goes
outside the glass and clamps the
whole firmly on. The spoon, when
not in use, is hung on the holder and
does not fall into the bottom of the
glass. While the device fits on the
edge of any receptacle, it is chiefly
employed where the receptacle is

The waist is made over a fitted
lining and consists of fronts and back
with the chemisette. The lining is i

sleeves are tucked to give a novel and
