It was an evening party. A young
man with a tall collar and pale hair
was reciting a poem. He had ground
out forty-seven stanzas and the end
was not yet.
"What's going on?" whispered the
guest wJio had just come in.
"Rhymer is letting out his latest
poem," answered the pessimistic per
son. "Whafs the subject the motive?"
queried the late comer.
"I have forgotten the subject," re
plied the P. P., "but I suspect the mo
tive must be revenge." Ideas.

Considerable Clover and Alfalfa
and Injure Orchards.
(By H. S. PIPER.)
The mouse which produced the
plague in some of the western state3,
a short time ago, proved to be the
"black mouse," one of the numerous
species of short tailed field or meadow
mice, a group which has caused wide
spread destruction In various parts of
the world. In nearly all parts of the
United States short-tailed field mice
are among the most abundant of
mammals, and a number of species in
widely separated localities have oc
casionally exhibited the same tend
ency to excessive Increase, indicating
that favoring conditions may produce

by Field Mice.
mouse plagues wherever the mice ex
ist. Even when in small numbers
they destroy considerable clover and
alfalfa and injure -orchards, nurseries
and root crops.
This is the first recorded instance of
an irruption of field mice in North
America attaining: the proportions of
a plague. The experience indicates
the probability of future and even
more disastrous outbreaks. In the
extensive reclaimed areas of the west
the abundant food and luxurious cover
furnished by alfalfa fields and the
miles of irrigation ditches, which af
ford these mice suitable homes along
their banks, greatly favor their in
crease, while surrounding desert con
ditions limit the spread of mice be
yond the cultivated areas.
Without doubt poisoning is the best
method at present known of dealing
with field mice on an extensive scale.
SOIL TOO RICH FOR APPLES
Trees With Beautiful Foliage, but
Mighty L!ttle fruit, Were Finally
Removed by Ax.
A common mistake in the selection
of a site for the apple orchard tract,
large or small, is that of choosing a
soil that is too rich; that will cause
abundant growth of wood, but mighty
little fruit. In the valley in which the
writer's ranch is located is an or
chard of mature apple trees, as pretty
a sight from the standpoint of foli
age as one could ask to see, which has
lately been felled because it did not
deliver the goods.
The tract is fat, rich and well wa
tered. Within gunshot of this tract is
a block of winter Nellls pear trees of
the same age that for severad years
past have grossed their owners close
to a thousand dollars per acre, says
a writer in an exchange. Never was
more emphatically demonstrated the
fact that soil can be too rich for ap
ples, but not for pears. Within a mile
of these unproductive apple trees, on
thinner and lighter granitic soils, the
apple trees bear proliflcally to the
point of breaking down.
GRAFTING MACHINE IS HANDY
Implement Designed to Cut Scion Di
agonally to Prevent Bruising or
In describing a grafting machine, in.
vented by A. Roberston of Canada, the
Scientific American says:
The purpose here is to provide a
machine more especially designed for
use in nurseries and the like, and ar
ranged to cut the graft or scion diag
onally with a shearing cut to prevent
bruising or injury to the graft. For
this purpose use is made of a rotary
cutter head proyided with beveled
knives, a table fpr the grafts to rest
on, and guides on. the table at an an
gle to the cutting edges of the knives
to guide the grafjts. The machine is
pictured herewith in a plan view.
Try this rotation: Alfalfa, potatoes,
grain. It Is a good one.
