If a half bushel of winter rye is

We should try to understand the
machinery we use, for we then will
have a positive advantage over the
mini who gives this subject no at
tention. Witli some this is a "gift,"
but any man with ordinary intelli
gence can become master of his
working tools. Not only will there
ho a saving from wear and tear, but
a man will always take better care
of that in which he has a special in
terest. (,'ut worms come out of the ground
and travel to the nearest green
thing. They go with difficulty over
a rough surface, and can not climb
a perpendicular Innk of earth.
These characteristics teach us not
to roll and use smoothing harrow
after the corn is up. which make the
surface so smooth that the worms
can travel rapidly. The best check
to cut worms is speedy and constant
working of the soil.
Many farmers procure an excel
lent stand of clover in their wheat,
but excessive pasturing of stubble
fields destroys more clover than
good care or treatment saves. Too
often must the land be plowed un
der in the spring or the farmer be
satisfied with a poor crop.
There is little use trying to reform
poor farmers by writing them up,
for they are tho kind who never
read any newspaper, and good
counsel is wasted upon them. The
example of one good farmer in such
a neighborhood Is worth mare than
all that can be written and printed
We kill weeds by keeping the
leaves and stalks cut olT, thus pre
venting root growth ; we can, by the
grazing of stock, destroy the clover
in the same way.
Early plowed land can be effec
tively harrowed better than that
which lays to the sun until August
or (September. After plowing, land
should be harrowed at intervals, as
the weeds start, and this will make
just such a seed bed as wheat needs.

often as you think it needs it, and
then harrow it just as much more;

llran mashes are best at first.
Six good thrifty pigs to a sow are
better than a dozen runts. Every
sow is not a good milker; they dif
fer as much as cows. The pigs must
have all they will eat, for slow
growth brings poor returns. The
pretty pig is always the fat one.

Sheep are peculiar in that they
must have perfectly sweet food.
There is no possible question about
roots, especially the sweet, palat
aple, nutritious sugar beet or the
succulent mangel. Thirty tons of
roots may be grown on any good
acre of land by the right cultiva
tion. This will feed 30 sheep for 200
days, or 200 sheep for a month, and

Well bred pigs which are kept
growing are ready for the market all
the time, while scrub hogs do not
begin to grow fat until they have
got age on them.
Fed as a whole, oats makes a com
plete ration, furnishing grain and
roughness. There is less waste
when they are cut and mowed away
the same as hay than when they are
bound into sheaves, as there is less
opportunity for the stock to get into
the habit of eating off the heads and
allowing tho straw to go to waste.
The difference- in the price be
tween well bred stock and scrubs,
when sent to market, ought to be a
sufllcient argument to induce any
one to breed the best.
An animal stunted when young
will never fully recover from the
effects. Too many farmers fail to
appreciate the little things in feed
ing and fail to procure the best gain
with the stock and to get the best
profits. At no other time is the in
fluence of liberal or scant feeding so
great as when the animal is young.
When given all that they will eat
at each meal, animals will tire of
any one article of food. They may,
and usually do, cat if healthy, but
they do not devour as much r witli
such good digestion as when a good
variety is supplied.
Perhaps tin; most economical way
to feed oats is to run them through
a cutting box and mix with a small
quantity of bran, dampening slight
ly so that the bran will stick to the
oats. In this way there will be no
waste; all will be eaten up clean.
Horses, sheep and growing cattle
can be wintered and kept in a good
thrifty condition at a low cost on
this kind of a ration if a liberal
quantity be given.
Ho far as the influence is thown
upon the milk and butter, it is
somewhat doubtful if grain directly
pads when fed to milk cows which
are to receive all the fine grass they
need. There is no food which will
take the place of good, rich grass.
The finest grain mixture ever de
vised will not answer so well. If the
grain is fed for the purpose of mak
ing bone, muscle and strength, that
Is another thing.
Even on the best dairy farms there
is more or less variation in the cream
and butter, and it is difficult to make
the same grade of butter at all times.
The influence are manifold, and to
a certain extent seem to be beyond
the control of the dairyman.
Deferring the watering for an hour
or two invaribly causes a slight
shrinkage in the milk and a deterio
ration in its quality. Allow a cow to
go without its regular food for a short
time, and she grows restive, and
every ones knows what a disastrous
eflect this has upon the milk flow.
Even in winter feeding the succu
lent silage has more influence upon
the milk How than the grain ration,
showing that while grain has its
function to perform in the food eco
nomy it does not by any means make
a complete ration, especially for our
With proper foresight a dairyman
can often buy fresh cows and sell
for more than cost at the end of two
or three years. He can well afford
to give for such a one what he is sure
will come back to liini aft'-r he has
used her for a profitable milker; but
she must be a cow which will feed
well, milk well and sell well when
she is fat.
It is strange that a country like
ours, containing ample territory and
exporting so much cheap wheat,
does not produce enough eggs for
home consumption. When the
tariff was five cents u doz-n we im

than ship so much raw material let
us turn it into eggs.

If you have a coop large enough,
properly located, built on dry
ground, air tight, with a good floor,
you are properly fortified for a re

next care is to provide an egg mak
ing ration. After all this provision
you have gumption enough to keep
the premises clean and tidy.

Berry plants never produce again
after they have brought forth one

Rather have fruits thinned out too
much than have them too thick. T:

must not be over crowded.
With fruit, try to have a perfect
growth rather than an enormous
crop. Tt is not unlikely that a large
crop will be obtained also.
The fruit grower should remember
that in preparing the soil, in select
ing plants, in hoeing, cultivating,
prunning, thinning, protecting, and
in every detail, he is performing an
important part in the quantity and
quality of his fruit one or two years
When the tops of onions fall over
they are ready to harvest. There is
no advantage in leaving them on the
ground after they have cured; three
or four days are sufficient for this.
After onions are cured cut the
tops off about one inch long; they
will keep better than if cut off close
to the bulb.
It is a question whether strawher
