GOOD EONEY I?Li. .
X. H. Duff Conaldrra Eokiia .a Clove
ExfceUeat for Dtri, for Teed
and fr Seed.
ou can great Iv improve vuax Honey
Bow in your locality, by putting out
honey plants, those that also are use
ful or ornamental, besides the honey
they produce. Perhaps the best honey
bearing plants and trees are those that
are good for other purposes as well.
The most abused'and misrepresented,
and the best honey-plant that irrows,
is bokhara clover. What I know
about bokhara clover is from my own
experience, having thoroughly" test
ed its usefulness not only for honey,
but for food and seed. Bokhara is
an immense seeder, and will produce
ten bushels of seed per acre under or
dinary conditions. This seed has a
ready market at wholesale seed houses
at from six to ten cents per pound,
and usually is retailed to growers at
from 15 to 20 cents per pound. That
bokhara is a good feed for stock I
can testify, having used it myself.
This clover, like alfalfa, stock do not
naturally take to. as they do to some
grasses, especially such grasses as
grow in the middle and eastern states,
where timothy, blue grass and red
clover abound. Stock there will usu
ally go around it just as they will
alfalfa, if alfalfa grew there as it
does here. This being true, and from
the fact that bokhara spreads and
grows spontaneously on road sides,
has given the impression to some peo
ple that it is only a worthless weed,
and for the want of proper investiga
tion and thorough testing it is thus
If I were planting trees for both
honey and other uses. I would plant
linden or "basswood," as it usually is
called, and also catalpa. The linden
is very valuable for its white, fine
grained wood, and, as a shade tree,
scarcely has an equal. ' The catalpa
is noted for its everlasting posts, and
in this regard it is said to have no
equal. It also is a beautiful shade
tree and both the foliage and the blos
soms are very ornamental. A. H,
Duff, in Farmers Voice.

close the box, a drop-leaf side is put
on by hinging at the bottom and
fastening supporting straps from the
upper corner of the box to the outer

table before the closet when open. If
this is not desired, put a screw eye In

FOOD AFFECTS WOOL.
Why It la Important to Provide Sheep
with Proper Xoorlahment tbe
Year AroamiL. : .
A bulletin of the Michigan station,
says: The strength of the weakest
place in the fiber decides the strength
of the. whole fiber.. So far as the
writer has been able to discover there
is no special ration, which, if fed to
sheep, will -produce wool of ' great
strength, nor can we. at "any time,
say that any special ration is to be
' recommended to produce a large
quantity of wool. It has often been
observed that sheep and lambs that
have been on full feed for long peri
ods shear heavy fleeces of wool.
This would indicate that any ration
calculated to keep the sheep in a
thrifty condition would be a suitable
one for growing large quantities of
wool. From what we have said above,
the wool grower will understand that
it is highly desirable to provide the
sheep proper nourishment through
out the year, permitting no periods
of neglect to intervene to destroy the
strength of the fibers of the fleece.
Liberal and judicious feeding does not
change the quality of the wool, but
it does affect the strength and the
quantity of the wool produced by a
given sheep. The weight of wool pro
duced is affected both by increasing
the length of fiber and by increasing
the amount of yolk and natural oil
in the fleece. '
Never allow capacity . to interfere
with quality; but when you can secure
capacity and perfect, grinding in a
mill that's the one to buy.
Always select,. .Jpi4-that wil1 admit
of 4ne largest amount of power being
Applied directly to the grinding.
This la an .excellent recipe and well

Miss Mary Proctor,, the astronomer and
lecturer, takes a deep interest in social set
tlement work in the big cities, and frequent
ly gives her personal services toward enter
taining pc it children and adults. Generally'
her lectures are very well received. Many
of her audiences often manifest better at
tention than thote drawn from higher cir
cles. Now and then there are exceptions.
On one occasion a bright-eyed little bov who
(at in the front row with his eyes fixed upon
the speaker was askedbow he liked it. "I
guefs," he said, "it was pretty good, but she
ought to talk about lions and tigers. That's
better for everybody." At another lecture
a youngster criticised her as follows: "It's
all very well to talk of weighing and meas
uring stars. There ar some people, of
course, who believe that sort of thing, but if
she thinks she can fool ss boys with such
fairy tale she's very much mistaken."
