from backache 'and rheumatism and

The only way to kill nut grass is
iot to let it show, a leaf above the
ground. This means constant clean,
ng off, for it will be up next day,
jut if constantly prevented from
naking green leaves the roots will
lie. Nut grass spreads more from
seed than from the roots, and being
neglected late in the season, it fills
the soil with seed, and nothing hut
constant vigilance will eradicate it.
I have just made a garden here from
a piece of land that is full of it, and
I am going to do just what I ad
vise; clean up every shoot every
day. Nothing but this will answer.

Think It Over.
If any of our farm boys think
that farming is a life of drudgery,
all work and no play, we wish
them to remember that there are
tens of thousands of men engaged in
other occupations in town who wish
they were on the farm, and many
thousands who were raised on the
farm, who wish they were back
there again. There is less reason
now for the farm boy looking with
longing eyes townwards than ever
before within our recollection, pro
vided, of course, the boy is fit to
be a farmer. I
There are farmers whose natural
tastes are so. strong in the direction
of some Other calling or business
that they bad.best fit themselves for
that, not necessarily because they
wonld not make good farmers, but
because, they would make better pro
fessional men, inventors, editors,
business men, or something of that
sort. A man does his best work in
that which he likes best- Before
you make up ' your mind that you
dislike the farm, however, open
your eyes and see what there is in
farm life to develop your intellect,
to teach you self-control, to give
you independence. Choose wisely,
and whatever be your choice, do
your level best-Wallaces' Far
