he mint know tomething about what it good for a hog. That's
what we thought when we asked H. T. Morgmn to write us an
article on what to put into a hog to get the most out of bim.

boat run away up into the country to get the farmer's produce.
I armer ; nf'ren miies apart have different boat lines, and for that
re.ivm they dor.'t get together ai often as most farmers. Going
across a river presents more difficulties than crossing the road
tiie irn s'ays or. t'ne otiier side, too. J. Russell Smith went down
there and found that each little peninsula was a little world by
itself, rrowirs; it? own peculiar crops. He has written several
artttn. . about these rich litt.e worlds that are surrounded by
oyster beds. This is trie first of the series.
Little This is a story written by a man who is "his
. own boss" and who doesn't "believe in cutting
r aim wood with a bucksaw." He came from Eng
land a poor man and settled in Canada. His first job was with a
truck ga-.clmrj, and he tc!!s how he improved on his employer's
met ho. K ami finally came to own a farm of his own. It is a simple
nory of a man who worked with his shirt and Lis mind open.

THe Cereal of W'thaveagTOwingriceindustry. This
ry-, p , food crop, the mainstay of several ra-
1 lie OOUtfl tions, can be grown to perfection on
many adaptable lands in the Southern btates. It is immensely
profitable where well managed. It doe not unduly exhaust the
soil : it is a crop worth studying. Read about it in the article,
"Where Rice it King," by F. G. Moorhead.
A Corncob "The reason men succeed who mind their
own business is because they have to little
VOnserVer competition." This it the motto that hangs
in the living-room of a Kansas farmer. He has minded his own
business so well that he now owns a lot of rich prairie land and
tlie mggest battery of silos in the country. He is one of those
fe.lows who puts the oil where the squeak is. He says a mowing-machine
ought to last fifteen years. His did. He doesn't
waste his corncobs, either. Charles Dillon has written a mighty
interesting article on this man and his farm. You'll like it.
Cashing-In The vital fact in all this rural credit agi-j-r
j. tation frequently overlooked is: What has
l" ajTO L.rellt the farmer to offer for the money he wants
to borrow How will he pay it back, even if the loan is for a
long term of years? What secures the investment? What is the
greatest asset of a farm t Why must methods be improved before
cash will be forthcoming? These and a dozen other pertinent
questions are answered by Mr. B. F. Harris, die Illinois farmer
banker. He know the farmer's side because he runs a farm of
his own; and he knows the banker's side because that is hit chief
business. What he tays it fundamental and mighty important.

for women, which will appear fortnightly ofter.er if there is a
large demand for it. Nor shall we forget the woman't church '

The female disturbance or irregularity back of these calls for help,
