WHY FARMERS FAIL
Secret of Success Not In the Business,
but In Themselves.
Did you ever think a bunt the num
ber of people that fall not only as
farmers, but at everythingV Many fail
even to make n good living. They plod
along In n hand to mouth sort of way
und never realize the satisfaction of
h successful life.
These people put all the blame on
the business Instead of upon them
selves. They say farming doesn't pay,
corn doesn't pay, and wheat doesn't
pay, und Um? stock breeding doesn't
pay. To hear them tell It. nothing
pays, and yet wo see till over the conn
try farmers here and there who have
grown well to do In these lines.
The secret of success must be sought
not in the business, but in ourselves.
Any business will pa/ if it has the
right sort of man back of it.
No man can succeed without study
ing success and meeting its conditions.
If you are a farmer yon must study
the business of farming to make much
out of it. That does not mean that j
you are obliged to know all the sei- i
ence of agriculture, though that would I
help. YOU must learn bow to make
every lick count and not lose your time
and money in doing work that will
y One of the things that will not pay
Is to work poor land. It takes just as
much time and labor as the working of
rich land, but, oh, the difference in re
sults! There is where you come out
tit the little end of the born when you
work poor land.
Improve your land at once or sell
out and buy a smaller piece of good
land. There Is no sense in working ,
land that brings nothing but nubbins
when you can do better. If you can't
do better, haul rich dirt from the
WOOdfl all winter and cover the land
with It. It v. ill pay you to do so.
When we think about our business
as we should it is not hard to see why
we fall and also to see how we could
succeed. Too many people don't want '
to pay the price of success which
comes in a close application to busi
ness. They don't know that if they |
OUCO get absorbed In their work and
push it with power they will be much
happier than it Is possible to be by
dragging on in the old Indolent way. !
Suppose, we turn over a new leaf for
one year and see bow we come out.
\\y that time we shall probably sue
peed so well that we will never want
to do otherwise.
Buttermilk For Sheep Ticks.
It la claimed that by pouring butter
milk freely along the backs of xheep
it will prove a remedy for ticks. If a
gill of kerosene Is added to a gallon
of buttermilk the remedy will be im
proved, as tho kerosene forms an emul
sion with buttermilk and does no harm
to the animal The remedy will cost
but llttlo and should be given a trial
by way of experiment, It Is also
claimed that If buttermilk Is given a
horse It will serve better than any
other as a remedy for hots. Thea?
remedies were suggested by parties
who have tested them.

Why Melon Vinei Die^
Melon vines sometimes die from no
apparent cause. Decay begins at the
baso of the vines, the branches not
falling until later. This frequently
happens when no Indications of Insecl

He put ins buggy under the shelter
of Hock Kirby. While absent, some
one not having the fear of the Lord
before him and instigated by the
devil, cut holes through the dashboard
Of his buggy; also cut the two sides

More Than F.aough Is Too Much.
To maintain health, a mature man
or woman needs just enough food to
repair the waste and supply energy
and bodily heat. The habitual con
sumption of more food than is neces
sary for these purposes is the prime
cause of stomach troubles, rheumatism
and disorders of the kidneys. If trou
bled witti indigestion, revise your diet,
let reason and not appetito control,
and take a few doses of Chamberlain's
Stomach and Liver Tablets and you
will soon be all right again. For aale
