we sometimes are disposed to think
rather disparagingly of those who after
t all may be our test friends, but not
nearly so likely to nake a mistake with
our luman friends as with (riends of
tle lower ordes of creatioiin. For
siomec reason farnmers generally dislike
toads. They have Ito good looks to
commend them, and Shakespeare gave
t the toad a bad ame by describing it
as ''ugly and venomous,'' yet "with a
priecious jewel in its head." I 'gly it
is beyond question; venomous it never
was; the jewel of the toad is not in
Its helad but in its stomach, and it is
one of the very best frieids that the
t farimer has on his farm. The experi
ment statiols, which ate in vestigating
i every direction to discver the
friends and Foes of tie farmer, are
aiolltg other thlngs investigating toads
aIni bats, and furni ishLi the st.rongest
kind of testimony as to the value of
these despised friends of the far
