Do not feed the pig9 too heavily,
especially of corn, at weaning time,
or they will get corn sick, which is
not easily overcome. When the
pigs in the pen get to chewing the
corn and then spitting it out, feed
plenty charcoal and a little salt. It
will tone up the digestive organs.
Harrowing should be done so as to

that "a stitch m time saves nine," it

For a 6table manure to be used
with potatoes, horse manure is ex
cellent, because it contains large
quantities of phosphoric acid and
potash, which are two essential in
gredients to their growth.
The cultivation of the corn at the
end of the season is to control moist
ure. Now is the time to attend to
tbe weeds. The very best work of
tbe season is being done right now,
if the corn is up.
It is true that all manures must be
liquid in form to be available as
plant food, but the leaching process
should take place in the field, and
not in the barn yard.
Where possible, land should al
ways be kept in such condition of
fertility and supplied with the ele
ments of plant food sufllciently to
met the requirement of any crop
we may wish to grow.
Suiting the crop to the land, rath
er than suiting the land to the crop,
is the easiest method of agriculture,
but it is not always the most profit
able. The owner is not then the
master of the situation.
We can not expect a large yield of
tubers without a good growth of
vine; yet, if planted too close on
moist, rich or too heavily shaded
soil, the foliage of potatoes may
sometimes develop at the expense
of the crop.
If mineral food elements be scant
and nitrogenous matter in excess,
potatoes are apt to be most luxuriant
in their growth above ground.
Especially should there be a supply
of potash and phosphoric acid.
About the worst folly a farmer can
commit is to spend time and money
and lahor to produce crops, and

It i the profit we must aim for,
the profit which comes from the best
farming, from raising most at least
expense, the raising on one acre
what our neighbor raises on two.
The man who increases his yield
an acre saves in seed, in expense of
cultivation and harvesting, and has
land left to put to other uses, and to
add to his profit.
Do not worry over the imaginary
danger of doubling the yield of grain
by good farming. Drain, manure
and cultivate all we please, and we
shall find the profits to increase pro
The "wasteful" farmer, instead of
having an easy pair of stairs to
climb to reach the hay loft, has not
even a decent ladder, but scrambles
up by the corner posts and braces,
at expense of time and muscle.
Arrange to have corn which does
not need sorting near the feeding
troughs. Arrange the horses so
that they will stand a way that hay
can be put into the mangers without
being handled two or three times.
Tim man who plants closely prac
tically enlarges his Held, it is pos
sible that heavy manuring and bet
ter cultivation will enable a farmer
to plant certain crops in hills nearer
together than is usual.
The fact that one or two eyes, well
fed with fertilizing material, will
admit of the full development of the
young potato, is a solution of the
question as to th best mode of
There is no necessity, further
than ease of cultivation, of planting
in lulls three feet apart, for if but
foot apart about three times as many
potatoes can be obtained with al
most the same labor.
A few acres planted early and
thickly with corn or sorghum will
furnish one of the best and cheapes
safeguards from drouth. Tf not

supply of excellent winter food is at
On high priced land summer feed
ing of grain, especially to milch
cow3, is often good economy. The
acreage of grass required is much
reduced. The extra food will show
in butter, too.
The irregularity of supplying salt
is detrimental to the best results. It
is essential not only to health and
vigor, but it aids digestion. A milch
cow will rapidly lose if salt is with
held. Save part of the pasture for July
and August, or put in some drilled
com, oats, peas or something of the
sort to be cut when the dry, hot sum
mer leaves you without grass.
Put out some roots for the stock
the coming winter, and do it in time.
They will furnish a relish which
pays as food better than even the
corn or the hay.
Let South Americ and Australia
raise scrub ranch cattle and small
sheep; our markets have changed.
Live stock is essential to prosperity
perity in agriculture, and to make
it pay we must breed good stock
which matures early.
We must be more careful to burn
or bury all dead animals, now that
we understand that the microbe is
responsible for most of the disease

iaster man any oilier animal; espe
cially do the larje mutton breeds,
which oiten produce twins.
Sheep fatten much more easily
than cattle, and when slaughtered
furnish not only meat, but wool, the
latter not only keeping indefinitely
but paying for long transportation.
If running a dairy, perhaps you
can establish a "fancy trade." It
may be done with either milk or
butter as a basis. Tutting the milk
in glass bottles as soon as drawn,
and carrying it to the customers, is
a feature in some places.
Because a hog is to sell by the
pound almost any on will feed it
well, but not one man In ten will
feed a milch cow enough to enable
her to do half as well as she might.
Guernseys win their way by their
own straightforward work in the
dairy. Their large size commends
them to the farmers who are grading
up good butter herds.

The prince rides up to palace gates,
And his eyes with tear are dim,
For he thinks- of the beggar maiden
Who may never wed with him.
For h'ome is where the hmrt Is,
In dwelling (treat or small,
And there's many a splendid palace
That's never a home at all.
The yeoman comes to his little cot
With a song when day is done,
For his dearie is standing in the door.
And his children to meet him run.
For home is where the heart is,
In dwelling great or small,
And there's many a stately mansion
That's never a home at all.
Could I but live with my own sweet
heart, In a hut with a sanded lloor,
I'd be richer far than a loveless man
With fame and a golden store;
For home is where the heart is,
In dwelling great or small,
And a cottage lighted by lovelight
is the dearest home of all.
