with the thumb and send for a doctor.
In the case of a simple cut, if torn and
lacerated, wash well with cold water,
and if any sand or glass be in it it
must be carefully removed; then cut
two or three pieces of sticking plaster,
heat them over the fire, and one by
one apply them to the wound to keep
the edges together. Apply a piece of
lint, and over this a bandage must be
put. The cut must be kept clean, but
the dressing should not be disturbed

SOME TIrlELY SUGGESTIONS.
How to Produce a Profitable Crop of
The Charlotte Oil & Fertilizer Corn
pany and the President of the Compa
ny, Mr. Fred Oliver, of Charlotte, N.
C., have again demonstrated on their
farms what can be done towards profit
abe wheat raising. The 230 acres which
they had in wheat thisyear gave na a
erage yield of 30 bushels pbr acre; one
field of 80 acres gave an average yield
of 84 bushels, another field of 90 acres
gave an agerage yield of .33 bushels per
acre. A field of 60 acres that was in
wheat a year ago, sown by the former
owner of the land, and which last year
yielded only eight bushels per acre;
thisyear gave an average y!ela of 24
bushels to the aere. With such an i!
lustration of what can be done by pro
fressive farming, why wili the majority
of farmers continue to be satisfied, or,
if not satisfied, continue to curse their
luck when their crop of wheatturns out
only five to ten buahels per acre? There
is no reason, and in fact. it is a crimo
for any farmer to throw away his time
and land by growing such a poor crop,
as the most of them now raise when
they could treble and quadruple the
yield by intelligent and progressive
farming. They must use better mulea
and ploughs to prepare the soil, using
the best disc grain drills, having fertil
izer distributors attached to plant and
fertilize the wheat, using the best seed
wheat even if it does cost a few cents
per bushel more money, using not leis
than 400 lbs. high grade complete fer
tilizer per acreinstead of 100 lbs. of low
grade acid and acid potash goods. Seed
wheat that is free from broken and de
fective wheat, and above all almost ab
solutely free from cockle seed is worth
twice as much for seeding as the seed
wheat usually used. Still more im
portant is the fact that seed wheat from
a crop that gave a yield of 30 to 35 bush
els per acre is superior to seed wheat
from a crop that gave only five to ten
bushels per acre. No farmer will at
tempt to raise mules and horses to
weigh 1,400 to 1,600 l bs. each and ex
pect to succed if he uses for breeding,
stock that weighs from 500 to 800 l bs. ;
no breeder of high grade milch cows
will expect to succeed except by using
high grade stock. Last, but not least.
they must use high grade fertilizer if
the farmers expect to receive proper re
turns from land and labor. Why be
satisfied by using 100 lbs. per acre of
cheap, low grade fertilizer when 400
lbs. of high grade fertilhzer will give an
increase of 15 to 25 bu'hels per acre?
It costs no more, or very little more, to
prepare the land for a good crop than
for a poor one; it costs no more to drill
in good seed wheat, and400 lbs,of high
grade fertilizer, per acre, than to drill
in poor seed wheat and 100 lbs. of poor,
cheap fertilizer per acre; it costs no
more to cut an acre of good wheat with
a reaping machine than it does to run
the machine over an acre of poor wheat.
and the reaping machine leaves less
wheat in the field ungathered if the
crop is a good one than it does if the
crop is a poor one. The farmers of the
south have the best market for their
wheat, corn and hay of any section in
the United States, as they can obtain
the same prices as the western farmer
plus the freight that is charged from
the west to the south. Why not then
farm on a profitable plan and not an
unprofitable one? Use good stock and
tools, good seed and fertilizer, good
judgment and skill in handling labor
and machinery, and above all work
yourself as an example to your hired
help, and you will fin dfarming profitable

Japan and Camphor,
Within a year the camphor trade of
the world has become a monopoly. The
trees which yield this fragrant and
useful gumn are to bec found all over
Asia and the East Indies, but the prin
ipal production from them Is confined
to the Island of Formosa. which be
longs to Ja~pan. China was never atile
to furnish more than 200).000 pounds
a year, and .Japan now produces about
300.000jt. Formosa's annual output for
several years past has been between
.00.000I andl 7.,000,I)t pounds. Little
is to be had at p~resent from any other
souce, and there is no prospect of any
change in the situation for a long time
In deciding to exercise control over
the productionl of camphor, Japan has
been actuatedl by two motives. In the
first plae, she wants to obtain revenue
therefrom, as France does from the
match and cigar Industries. But she
also seeks to avert the killing of the
goose which lafs the golden eggs for
her. -In other words, she has under

After Three Years.
An extraordinary instance of the in

has just occurred at Northwich. In
Juy, 1897. a bird belonginig to Mr.
Wood ward, A venue Lodge, Winning
ton, was liberated, with others, at
Rennes, France. The race proved dis
astrous, only one out of several hun
dred. and that belonging to Mr. Wood
ward, returning home the same day.
Tils week the owner was astonished
to discover that one of the lost homers
had found its way back, and that on
the same date as when liberated three
years ago. The bird bore the racing
ring which a'stablished his identity.
