Shall the Harvest Be?
^ vesting the small grain and hay crops. ?8?
It'depends a great deal on the MANNER OF HARVESTING; the MACHINERY used
and the disposition of the crop after it is harvested. To harvest the crop with the least
possible waste must be the object.
The Farmers generally have not given as much thought as they should to the matter
B A-LING THE HAY after it is cut. You can greatly facilitate the handling of your
hay crops by investing in a HAY PRESS.
The RED RIPPER HAY PRESS is the very acme of practical usefulness. It was in
vented, improved and perfected by PRACTICAL .FARMERS and meets every demand
which can possibly be put upon it.
\ DO NOT BUY any other until you get our booklet explaining its superior points;
among others, how the Plunger never jams, the Box never bursts, and how pressure is re
gulated by Automatic Tension.
It is a Wonderful Improvement over all others.

How Meerachaum Is Mined.
"Meerschaum Is mined like coal,"
said a pipe dealer. "It is a soft, soap
like stone, and in Asia Minor its min
ing is an important industry.
"The crude meerschaum is called
hamtash. It is yellowish white in color
and a red ciay coat or skin envelops
It. The blocas cost from $25 to $200 a
cartload. They are soft enough to cut
with a knife.
"These blocks In summer are dried
by exposure to the sun. In winter a
heated room is necessary.

sorted into twelve grades, wrapped In

Cheap Cottage Exhibition.
A "cheap cottage" exhibition was re

A number of comfortable cottages were
shown, which, Including tho builders'

intended to make a wholesome, com

his family, and not to be "glorified pill
boxes," to quote the Duke of Devon
shire, who is one of the foremost ad

A French w/rlter in a scientific mag

about 1,280 feet. At that level plants,
deprived of light, cannot exist. The

become atrophied and disappeared. Yet

Eccentricities of the Shah.
Recently he came upon a kitten that
immediately charmed him. For a
while the shah played with the kitten,
and at last he picked it up and present

owner, the wife of a gardener, ven
tured to protest. She loved the kitten,
she could not part with it; but the
grand vizier threw her a piece of gold,

Vast Areas in Florida Becoming

The department of agriculture is spe

half-flooded swamps to the south of
the huge pond known as Lake Okee

productive land'vby constructing dikes

achievement which, when carried into
effect, will bring about the shipment, a

It has even been suggested that Lake
