Is gained. But Avith some farmers a
little money counts more than a great

couple of dollars for the root they will

in a bed by itself, making the ground
rich, but' avoiding weedy manure.
Keep down the Weeds, and transplant
the asparagus the following year, set

deep enough so that harrows and cul

the brace, so one hole through the beam
will be sufficient. Then have a clamp
made, B, with threads cut oa each end
so you can tighten; this clamp to be
placed just in front of cross bar be

you can set to any depth desired. Use
a seven or eight inch shovel on this

A BEAUTIFUL FLANT
Of all the flowering plants that co
from bulbs, if obliged to put up witJi
one only, I think I would choose tht
gladiolus. It is easy of cultivatiou.may
be had in a great variety of colors, is
not expensive to purchase, and bj
planting at two or more different times
the garden may not bo without bloom
for many weeks between July and the
coming of hard frosts. One of its best
merits is that when the flowering
stalks have opened one or two flow
ers all the remaining bud? will open
to perfection after the stalks arc cut
and placed in vases of water in the
house. For cut flowers I know of
nothing that is superior.
A few dollars will buy quite a vari
ety of kinds, and with care in cultiva
tion the number of bulbs will doubh
each year. Some of the bulbs wil'.
produce four, and even live, but it is
not best to expect more than two on
the average. Usually a few of the
old ones fail to grow when planted out.
I always begin planting when planting
the first early potatoes, covering the
bulbs about four inches deep, as the
stalks are less likely to lall over if well
supported by surrounding soil. The
lighter shades are the more costly to
buy, and they do not increase as fast
as the shades of red, which was doubt
less the original color when growinq
wild in its native country. The soil
should be rich and mellow, but I would
not put much stable manure in the
drills with the bulbs. After danger o1
hard freezing in the fall, the bulb.'
should be lifted with a spading fori
and the tops cut off within an inch ol
the bulb. Spread thinly till eomplotelj
dry. when they are safe in a good eel
lar from frost till time to plant ou
again in tne spring. A. W. Cheevoi, Ii

SYSTEM ON THE FARM. "
System nnd order are laws of na
ture. Too many of our farmers disobey
these laws, by doing their work in a
:onfused, unsystematic mniner, hav
ing everything and about the farm
yard kept in a sorderly way, allow
ing buildings to become ragged and
tottering, and carrying on the general
management carelessly and recklessly.
System and order are necessary in
every trade or profession, and not least
in farming. They are essential as
jconomizers of labor and expenditure,
as well as promoters of happiness and
comfort. The man or woman who
loes not plan may toil incessantly from
?arly morning till late at night with
out accomplishing as much as he or
she who has worked systematically for
i much shorter period. Have a definite
plan of work. If there are several to
io the work, let each one be assigned
l certain jiart of It, thus avoiding con
fusion and delay. Have a place for
tools and implements, that they may
jasily be found when needed.. See that
fill machinery Is In running order by
the time the season for its use lias
come. It is well to have machines
looked after before putting away after
having been used. Keep buildings and
rard in order and neatness, and farm
dfe will.be more pleasurable and profit,
ible. Gustav M. Bruce,, in The Epit
omist. ' '
CARE OF THE BROODER.
Use dry sand, sawdust or even paper
on the floor of the brooder, changing
frequently. An occasional scrubbing
with soap and water will aid in keep
ing the floor sweet and clean. Toiish
up the glass and allow the chickens
the benefit of the sunshine whenever
A hydro-safety lamp is much better
than a common oil lamp. Trim the
wick and fill the lamp as often as there
is the least' danger of tho oil becoming
exhausted. It does not pay to run the
risk of having the light go out and the
chicks become chiled. If lime is used
in the brooder, sprinkle plentifully
with some non-irritating substance to
prevent injury to the feet of the little?
chicks. As the brooder is the home o
the chicks and they are confined ex-
cluslvely to it for the first few day?,
during that time it requires extra care.
Small trays for feeding are useful,
both for keeping the feed from be
coming filthy and for preventing it
from becoming mixed with tho lilter
on the floor. A small fountain should
be used for watering the chicks. I
usually take a small tea plate, pour
it about two-thirds full of water and in
vert a saucer in the centre, or a bowl
in'verted will do as well. Sometimen
I use a flat dish and cover with a
tono, leaving only sufficient room for
the chicks to insert their heads and
drink. This keeps the floor compara
tively dry, which is a great help to
ward keeping the brooder clean.
An occasional airing nnd sunning
will sweeten the brooder wonderfully.
Take an old scrub brush and some boil
ing soapsuds, scour out tho brooder
and leave in the sun until thoroughly
:lry. Turn so that every part will
come in direct contact with the rays.
