The wind mill will not only raie
water for tbe stock, but will grind

garden: there are few large farms
where it will not well repay Its cost.
Those who have them wonder how
they got along without them.
There can be no arbitrary rule as
to the amount of clover aeed to sow
an acre, for much depends upon the
soil and the time of sowing. If all
the seeds grow there is enough in
three quarts to make a fine stand;
but we rnuist usually sow as much
more, to provide for losses and failures.
To save the peas and beam for
seed in good condition, free from the
weevil, place a small piece of gum
camphor among them. A very small
piece lu a closed package will pro
tect a bushel.
The self binder has improved the
cost of wheat producing about 10
per cent, and we must reckon this
when comparing prices past and
present. Thinking farmers agree
that with a few practical improve
ments in methods of culture the
yield an acre can be increased, and
that wheat growing may yet be a
source of profit to us.
The exhaustion of the free public
domain, the surprising foreign de
mand for our productions, and the
general movement toward better
roads, are all present factors in in
creasing the value of farm lands
This is quite as likely to come

Earlv varieties of potatoes should
be ilantcd as goon as the soil can be

about the middle of June. Try to
avoid having potatoes reach the set

and August. Those planted in May

An old pasture is often a synonym
for a poor pasture ; whereas it should
become better with age, and will
with proper care. Many of the best
grasses which make butter a net
cheese of the very llnest llavor do
not attain much growth until three
years old, after which time they
continually get better.
It is well to remember that the ex
port price for our products is the
main factor In determining the
home price for the whole output,
and that we shall serve our best in

crops and stock in such n manner as
will make them available for export

Within the last 20 years there has
been an increase of four million
acres in the permanent pasture lands
of Great Britain. Beef and mutton
have been fonnd to pay better than
grain, which may surprise some
American farmers; but it is a sug

One thing is certain, we can not
