Two Collars on a Dog.
Having bought a dog that he admir
ed, a man undertook to buy a dog col
lar. The dog had a neck nearly as big
as his head, and the dealer advised the
man to buy two collars.
. "What for?" said the man. "He's
only got one neck, so I guess he can
get along -with only one collar, can't
"Maybe so," said the man, so the
man went away leading the dog by his
ne^ collar and chain. In less than a
wef s he brought the dog back.
"I'm afraid I can't keep him," he
said. "He Is too obstreperous. I can't
keep him tied up. His- neck is the big
gest part of him, and he is as strong
as an or, therefore it is a cinch for
him to slip his collar off."
"That was why I wanted you to take
two collars," said1 the dealer. "Put
both on and fasten the chain to the
back collar, and he- can tug away all
night without getting loose. He may
commit suicide, but he won't get
loose."'-New York ISun.

IRISH POTATO PLANTING

potato requires it-Barnyard manure ,
greatly increases the yield, as it adds
nitrogeu, phosphoric acid and pot- ;
ash; also greatly improving the me
chanical condition of the soil. It is
best, however, to not apply the ma
nure directly to the potato crop, but
to have used it on the land the year
before. An argument against using
it directly is that by so doing the
dangers of the disease are greatly '
increased. If it has not been applied
to the previous crop, it would be
best to have the manure well rotted
Where the soil has been for sev
eral years treated with barnyard
manure and green crops plowed un-J
der, commercial fertilizers can be
used with advantage. What the
grower wants in this time is a gen
eral fertilizer-that is, a complete
one,--containing nitrogen, phosphor
ic acid and potash. It has been
found that fertilizers should contain
a good percentage of potash when
used on potatoes; and it is there
that the special potato fertilizers
hold their secret of success. Sul

Dick in a Crowd.

man to Washington.
"Well, Tom," a friend asked him
on his return, "did you see Wash

get what you went after?"
"Yes, I seen|Washingtonand, I seen
