Dear Klsa — "It's more than all a

that ever interesting topic of conversa

forty, ami the above remark was
made by Mrs. Van S., who of ail per
sons is a living example of her own
theories. "And." she continued, "self

In an English school they have add
ed to the curriculum a class which
may be called "mothering, practical
and theoretical." A real, live baby
has been engaged as the "subject."
while a trained nurse from one of the
hospitals explains to the pupils rhe
best way to bathe and clothe it and
generally how to be a good motiier.
Girls must be seventeen or over to
enter this class. Each girl takes her
turn in looking ■ after the baby, a
plump little girl aged thirteen weeks.
Every little duty which the careful
mother has to attend to in the home is
taught the girls by the trained nurse
A LESSON IN TAKING CARE OF BABY.
How to bathe the baby, how to cut
out and make clothes for it, how to
mix foods, scientific feeding and by
giene, cooking for the home and how
to detect illness. They are taught to
distinguish the "teething" cry from
the "stomach" crj, the "pin" cry from
just plain temper.

To Clean Bronze.
Bronzes which have become dull
and lusterless with age can be Immense
ly improved by the simple means of
trashing them with a soapy sponge and
ihen rinsing them in beer. Old direc
tions say the rinsed bronzes should be
placed close to the fire while still wet
and allowed to dry of themselves.
This is supposed to produce the dull
leaden glaze which is characteristic of
pood bronze. The less soap used the
better. To clean bronzes in the ordi
nary way with plenty of hot water
and a strong lather will be apt to in
jure their appearance.

BROWN ROT CONQUERED.
Belief That Worst Foe of Stone Fruit
Growers Is Under Control.
The Rural New Yorker says that
brown rot. the most destructive fun
gous disease known to tli<- peach or
chardist, has flnafly been put under
control. ,T. 11. Bale of Georgia and
Connecticut paid his respectH to the
brown rot disease in the following
terms: "The brown rot js-so great a
factor for evil in the raising ol peaches
lor ihe market that in a few years
more it would have accomplished the
complete failure of my orchard plain
in the state of Georgia. We can mas
ter or control every other enemy of
the peach by up to date methods and
precautions, but until now we have
had no weapon that would touch the
brown rot fungus." A <l then he con
tinucd to say that "the usi> of the self
boiled lime sulphur spray ;is a foliage
treatment for the peach tree, recently
discovered by W. M. Scon of the United
States department of agri u!fure.alone
would swing the future status of my
fortune from failure to success."
The Importance of this spray to Mr.
Bale reaches to every other peach
grower in the country, with somewhat
less force, except perhaps, to orchard-
Ista in the arid regions of the west
where the climatic conditions are un
friendly to the career of the d«strue
tive fungus. In the early peach sec
tion of Georgia the work of Mr. Scott
means the restoration of prosperous
peach growing, where recently the in
dustry has had to be abandoned solely
on account of brown rot. Gradually
in the past fifteen years the peach belt
has been pushed farther south into
the humid regions of Georgia for the
mtowN rot or peach.
[Thin the fruit, destroy the mummies,
spray with self boiled lime sulphur and
arsenate of lead. Directions given in
circular of Virginia agricultural experi
sake of producing earlier fruit. It is
here that the rot has worked the most
While in general it is true that the
coastal plains are hardest hit, it is a
fact that wherever there are stone
fruits raised in abundance there is
brown rot present, waiting only the
awakening touch of the friendly damp
ness to bring it to life, when in a few
days it will devour a large part or all
of the profits of the orchard. In a
recent year D. AL Wertz of Waynes
boro. Pa., a large orefaardist located
in the mountain region, where peach
trees are assumed to be comparatively
sale from brown rot, lost twenty car
loads, or about one-third of his crop,
from a sudden outbreak of the fungus
A man is not master of his
farm unless he has a familiarity
with each acre's value and each
acre's ability. It is useless in
these days of high priced land
to bcther with average yields. It
is not wise to wait until com
pulsion causes one to take care
of the fartility of the soil.
The use of roots and especially man
gels for dairy cows is still much prac
ticed in many portions of the United
States and Canada. The English farm
ers say that mangels should not be fed
until they have been stored about
three months for the reason that dur
ing the period of storing the mangel
gains much in sugar.—Hoard's Dairy
Chemicals With Manure.
This is the way some of them use
manure when fertilizer is to go on the
crop: A load of manure is put in the
spreader and thirty to forty pounds ot
the chemicals scattered over it. The
result is that the whole thing is evenly
scattered.—Rural New Yorker.
The Way With Weeds.
Possession is said to be nine points
of law. This is certainly true of
weeds. When they once get possession
of a field it takes about nine times
the labor to get rid of them than would
be needed if they had been held in
check from the start.
