The richer the field la (he thicker may
be the corn planted. Barren stalks are
more the result of soil starvation than
a decrepit ancestry.

The average monthly wages pai?l the
farm hand in this country during the
year 1002, where he had I i? hoard, was
?10.4<>. In 1879 it was $10.l.'>. This includes
the colored labor of the south.
A well flavored ham Is a rare product
of modern packing house methods. The
average ham Is a failure in all save the j
salting. There are lots of old fashioned |
farmers who could give the packing j
houses pointers on how to euro a hum.
In setting out an orchard for commercial
purposes a common mistake Is .
to plant too many varieties. The whole- !
Kale dealer in the largo cities wants car j
load lots of standard varieties. Three |
or four kinds are enough for the coin- j
luercial orchard of twenty acres; better 1
less than more.

One of the marked changes in progress
among the American people now
In progress is the loaning toward the
farm, tlio desire to own a piece of land
and to Unow how to cultivate It. At a
prominent agricultural college in the
west twenty years ago there wns In an
enrollment of <500 students hut Jnst one
that was taking the straight agricnl
mi in vuurau. i uu rusi wore lining
themselves to bo doctors, lawyers, parRons,
ton olio rs and mechanics. At the
name college this winter a short course
In agriculture has drawn there a thousand
young men who want to learn
how to grow corn, Judge stock and all
about soil culture, and even' one of
them goes back to 801110 farm to put
Into practice that which he may learn.
The question of the best method to
caro for the Infirm and needy poor of
even our best communities Is a serious
one. The most practical and satis
factory method we lmve seen tried Is
for the county to own n good farm,
hnve It operated by a competent and
practical farmer and lmve on the farm
a commodious home for the people to
he cared for. Such little work as these
people are capable of doing Is readily
put to good use on the farm in many
?in in*; iuib <ii iiio garjien, tno
poultry and tho stock. The farm conditions
and environment arc of the host
in a sanitary sense, and where such a
farm Is managed, as it may be. the]
cost of keeping such people is reduced!
to n minimum. Tho committee of the
hoards of supervisors who have such
a farm In charge should he practical

the plan Is likely to be n failure.
It takes tbe draft horse to lmul off

We want no deep spring plowing foi

Of tlx; 000 varieties of weeds uiui
grasses common to tho United State.*,
cuttle will cat ufl, horses 82, sheep TmU,
and the goat will take in tho whole
bunch.
Where but one grain ration is fed
to the laying hens it should he wheat.
as wheat more nearly than any other
cereal Is a balanced ration. It will
always pay to sell corn and buy wheat
for the hens.
Silage should be fed from the top of
the silo and not dug out from the bottom.
Ono man who tried the latter
method got caught in the hole as the
silage settled down 011 him, and there
was a imk t uneral.
Tlio nil too common tragedy of llio
round between the wealthy fanner and
the ugly bull at tin; head of bis herd Is
constantly going on. Tin; Hible says.
"Put not your trust In princes," but It
is safer to trust a prince tluin a well
mannered bull any time.
A skunk by some means made bis
way into the audience room of a country
church one f'undr.y recently, and il
took the best efforts of all the male
members of the congregation a matter
of live hour.; to pet him out without
<lcs?crathi& the sacred cditice.
Tlio re:11 value of condimental foods
to {lie stock raiser is still a very debatable
matter in farm institutes anil agricultural
conventions. There seems to
bo only one thing about such foods
which is really settled, and that is that
the men who manufacture them make
a lot of money.
Nature is always compensatory. TIere
is the puny twenty-year-old man, with
no bcanl and weighing only 1<<> pounds,
who gels a salary of $10,000 a year :is
a horse jockey, while this Hue looking,
bewhiskered 200 pound man who has
been through college and theological
seminary works hard to care for a
country school or parish for $!,000 a
year.
Where men \V( wise enough to provide
for one, the winter pasture has
been a great success in the west this
year. This pasture Is simply a lieM of
hint? grass from which the slock was
removed last July and the grass allowed
to grow. With only a little snow
and moderate whiter weather, stock
will live 011 such pas'ure in preference
to any stored foods.
I.ast year's crop of winter wheat in
western Kansas was a marvelous one.
in this midwinter time it lies by the
millions of bushels in great piles at
country depot grounds, wholly exposed
to the weather, awaiting the time, if it
ever comes, when the overtaxed railroads
can haul it to market. And this,
too, right In what was known <mlv n

Knsilage mid alfalfa are working a
great agricultural reformation In this
country, the ensilage In the oast and
middle west and the ;ilf;!lfn In all the

The silo i-s adding a third to tho acreage

In spite of rapidly multiplying electric
roads and the automobile, displacing,
as they do, the borne in some lines.
tin- fact remains that in spite of these
the good horse lias a brighter future
before him than ever before. The love
of a gooil horse will never grow less
in this country, and there is no safer
or more certainly profitable business
on the farm today than producing the
[ right kind of iioi'ses. The foreign do
mand for American horses Is growing
rapidly, for tin? horse can be raised
hero cheaper than any where else.
So extended has become the telephone

j and give a person a bad reputation, i

J to use It for business. Your call should I
