Having moved recently from a state'
in which the meadow lark is held in
high regard as a destroyer of insect
pests and as one of the earliest har
bingers of spring, the writer has been
interested In angn comparisons wIth

That the farmer Is jockeyed a good
deal In the grading of the grain which
he sells has been suspected for some
time pest, and this has reference to
practically all cereals In w'aich grades
are recognized. One of the big termi
nal elevators in a Minnesota city, the
destination of the wheat shipped from
the small local elevator, took In in thej
course of one year 3,000,000 bushels of
No. 1 wheat. 4.000,000 bushels of No, 2.
and 8,000.000 bushels of No. 3- This
wheat must have been subjlected toJ
some marvelous process of lmprove-,

bushels of wheat was forwarded there'
were 8,000,000 bushels of grade No. 1.;
000000 bushels of No. 2 and 3,000,000:
bushels of No. 3. This kind of skull-'

Clyde Fitch's ,Joke.
"Clyde Fitch was an Indefatigable
worker," said an actor who has played
in many of the Fitch comedies. "When
he had a lay on the stocks he would
labor over It day and night, often
scarcely pausing for his mecais and
getng very little sleep; consequent
ly his health suffered. lHe would workj
until on the verge of a nervous break-;
down, and then his physician would
step in and force him to knock off.
"During one of these periods of en
forced Idleness he was lounging in the

not until lately have we seen the same
plan suggested for keeping queen bees
from leading new swarms away from

Few of nature's agencies prove un

kinds of fruits, is the chief distributer

The balkiness of the mule is prover

Hogging down corn is an economical
feeding practice familiar to dwellers in
certain sections of the corn belt-brief
ly, turning the hogs into small fenced
portions of a field of mature corn and
letting them eat it at will. A Colorado
sheep grower seems to have adapted
this Idea to sheep and beets and last
year harvested twenty acres of beets
by turning sheep into small patches of
the field set olf by hurdles. They ate
tops, roots and all, the only assistance
received being a loosening of the deep
er rooted teets with a spading fork.
The feeder commends the plan as a
While the tomato will produce some
fruit of fair size with little or no at
tention. very satisfying results In the
matter of an improvement in the size
of the fruit can be had by thorough
and frequent cultivation and a pruning
of the vines so that they will set fruit
on but three or four leaders or
branches. When this plan is followed
it is well to stake the plants in an up
right position, using a strip of cloth to
fasten the vines to the sakes. Should
fruit of exceptional size be desired
this may be brought about by still
further restricting the number of to
matoes allowed to ripen.
While housewives are generally of
the opinion that it is more difficult to
make good bread from soft than hard
wheat Bour. the following recipe gives
excellent results: One quart of wet
ting, Including one cupful of soft yeast.
Add two level tablespoonfuls of salt
and three and three-quarters quarts of
sifted flour. Mix and knead fifteen
minutes, let rise, mold down. let rise
again and put in tins. Ixt rise again
and bake. The above recipe gives
equally good .results with hard wheat
four by reducing tie quantity of flour
to three quarts. With this recipe one
can start a batch of bread at C In the
morning and bake It with the dinner
Several points have been pretty well
learned about fenceposts -seasoning
them, their durability, etc. Among
these are that the post timber shoul
be cut during the summer or early
autumn, that the bark should be peeled
off at once so that the drying proces
will be hastened and that if possible
from eight months to a year should
elapse between the time of cutting the
posts and setting them In the ground.
More recent experience proves quite
conclusively that giving the butts of
the posts a bath of hot creosote will
increase their life from two to three
times. Whether such treatment would
pay in any particular case would de
pend on the price of posts and the
cost of creosote.
As a result of using seed of poor
itality many a corn grower Is just
now confronted with a stand of corn
so poor that It will hardly nay him to
give It the care It shoul' have during
the remainder of the .season, and natu
rally he is looking for a substitute.
While buckwheat, cowpeas, soy beans
and sorghum may prove the most de
sirable substitute crops in certain sec
tions millet will likely prove most sat
isfactory in a majority of instances.
Of the three varieties of millet-com
mon Hungarian and German--the
first is considered best for a forage
crop, while the last will give the best
results In a seed crop. The chief ob
jection to the Hungarian millet is that
It crosses readily with the common
wild foxtail, a near relative of the mil
let family. The common millet and
Hungarian will do better on light soils
than the German variety. With all of
the millets which are intended as for
age crops It is important to cut before
the heads have passed the dough stage.

which has been Investigating millet as
a forage crop lately, recommends one.

Ths Ham Fair at Part;.
A feature of Parisian life Is the ham
fair which is iield on the Boulevard
Richard Le Noir. The name of this
fair is wholly misleading, for us far
as I have ever seen hams are the very
last thing any one ever buys there.
Old brass and copper curios. quaint
.iewelry. rare china. lace, tapestries
and books are what tiost people go
out to seek. and a sight not to be easily
forgotten is the long. wide boulevard
lined with ramshackle stalls laden
with every possible kind of ltimaber-and
presided over by the mos't rapacious
of brocanteurs. Out of piles of value
less lumber Americans and English
diligently seek for their pet kind of
curios, and there is not an artist in
Paris who cannot point to some bit
of furniture in his or her studio and
say with pride, "I got that for 5 francs
at the ham fair.' No one ever pays
more than 5 francs. I notice, but, alas.
every year these tive franc bargains
are becoming more-rare, and even as
housekeeping in Paris grows more and
more costly so does the furnishing of

the shopkeeper's face, the customer
said. evidently offended. "Perhaps you
doubt my word?"
"Oh, not at all, sir; not at all. I
couldn't doubt the word of so truthful
a man. I was simply smiling because
I wondered how it was possible for
you to have got the money here. This
place was opened only night before

A Pearl Stringer's Keen Eye.
The pearl stringer's eye becomes
practiced In the detection of real and

surface with an indescribable blush.
This blush Is so cleverly counterfeited
in was Imitations tha! even those who
are accustomed to handling pearls day
after day are likely to be deceived.

the gauze is coated with a chalk and
water mixture. The handles are made

What a Sumer Cold May Do.
A su-=mer coid if neglected is just as
apt. to develop into bronchitis or -pneu
m1onia as at. any other season. Do not
neglect it. Take Foley's Hca'ney and Tar

and heals the inflamed air passage, and
expels the cold from the system." W. E.
