' It may be a song of which we are
weary, but it is true that a Binall area
of trees will begin at once to add
value to a farm, and that value will
increase with each year's growth.
A black walnut tree, planted upon
rough, untilable ground, will soon
be worth more than the whole acre

taxes will not seem such a burden.
It is possible that the weed pests
of the country will not feel the real

Barberry makes a beautiful fence,

save himself the hard work which
brings riches by spending money
for unnecessary appliances which
should go toward lifting his little
mortgage or improving his farm.
Sometimes a wheat field not burn

there be a concert among neighbors

The wise farmer is looking for the

quantities of food, and not some

present day is how to pit-pare his

If you have a sufficient number of
cows or mares or sows, own a male
of your own ; it is possible you may
cheapen his cost by hiring him out

expensive to own a thoroughbred
male than to be continually paying
out service fees.
Good food fed to good stock will

stock; consider it wasted.

We should not lose sight of the
fact that while the flrat cross be

character results in increased vigor
of constitution, it at the same time
does such violence to the breeding
characteristics of the animals as to
render their progeny of no practical
value for breeding purposes.
To wait for a raise in prices often
but consumes feed at a loss, and the
rise, if it comes, is otf-tet by the waste
of feed. The wiser way is to plan
to, have some good stock to put on
the'market every month in the year.

Corn fodder losm some of its val
uable constituents when left expos
ed in shocks in the field; it also
loses some by heating when put in
thesilo. It requires about half as
much power to cut stalks when
green as t cut them when dried, and
i he com cutting for the silo can all
be done at one time, and hence far
cheaper 'nan when it must be done
at different times after it is dry. Our
own special conditions must help lis
decide just what is best to do with
our stalks. When properly treated
with hot water, and the proper time
elapses between preparing the food
and feeding it, dry fodder will be
found not much inferior to the ensi
lage. Poor stock and neglect usually go
together and lead to disappoint
ment. Grude up to pure bred sires
and get that early maturity and su
perior quality developed by the skill
of the successful breeders. Huch
stock prompts one to liberal feeding
and the best of care.

If horned cattle a.e most profitable
at two or three years of age, sheep
should be the same under one year
old. Selling all the wethers as lambs
might make a breach on the wool
market for a time, but mutton eat

pecially if the better lamb meat is
the quality which makes the princi

The slow hand gets the less milk
and dries the cow. Milking should
be done rapidly, and it is, therefore,
well not to have too many hands em
ployed in the work. With one milk
er to a dozen cows there is more like
lihood of efficient work than when
half as many cows make up the tale.
The character or temperament of
a cow can not be changed ; if poor in
kind she can never be made a good
dairy animal any more than can a
plow horse be converted into a road
ster. Abundant food will support
her, but it is wasteful to feed her for

Let the male for your dairy be se
lected from a family better in your
line of dairying than your herd, and
it will be a guaranty ot improve

is up to the ideal standard, then be
very careful not to go down by us

The odors and taints about the
milk due to the influence of good
may be readily distinguished from
bacterial growth. If the trouble ap
pears soon after eating, it is due to
the food ; but if the taste is affected
after a few hours, growing rapidly
worse, one may be assured that the
remedy to be sought is not to be
found in changing the food, but in
better management in the da'ry and
Constant dry food will deciease
the milk yield. In feeding cows it
is an unwise piactice to give too
much chaff, crushed corn or any
other dry food, unless it is steamed.
If we can coax our hens to lay in

We can easily keep our poultry
houses dry if we can place them on
a little mound or hillside. We
should not count it too much work

Ducks will not run about more
than is good for them when they
have their liberty. They fatten best
when given free range, though this
is not true of all fowls.
A patch of rye to which hens can
get during the winter and early in
the spring makes flue green feed. It
is not too late to sow rye for this pur
pose. Allowing the cocks to run with the
hens during the winter has nothing
to do with early laying; and then
remember that infertile eggs have
superior keeping qualities.
Ducks have good appetites, and
we inti9t seed them accordingly. If
they are young they will use the
feed to add to their weight, and if
matured they lay better for being
More profit can be had from cheap

a fresh space in his poultry yard in
the morning, where his biddies may

The quince is a valuable fruit and
the orange variety seems to lead in
productiveness. They have hardly
failed of a crop at any time during
the last 10 years, where the climate
is suited to them, while many other
varieties have made but poor head
way. The mildew of the foliage and the
rot of the fruit have been the chief
obstacles to the successful growing
of hot house grapes out of doors.
With the fungicides now at com

come, in moderate climates.
