Common Mistakes in Curing For Mu li 'ii e. We believe that tuc best placo for stable manure is uu or in the laud just as soon au it can be put there, but anyone knows that in wet weather it io not always practicable to put out manure as soon as it ls made, and wo have often stated that fact. Moreover, we have advised against putting manure on land, that washes without promptly mixing it with the top soil at least. This is not to prevent evaporation, as some seem to think, but for no other purnose than to prevent lt washing away. Of course, if manure is put on a hillside that ls hard, its value will leach and wash away, Just as it will from the barn lot that is on a sido hill. On the oth er hand, if there is a growing cover crop on the land, or if it is fixed iu any way that the manure and soil do not wash away it ls likely to lose less on the lsnd than anywhere else, ex cept possibly in a deep stall where lt is tramped down hard and enough bedding and phosphate rock are used to absorb the liquid manure. Another error which ls popular and which seems to be shared by our cor respondent ls that best reBults are obtained from manure when well rot ted before being applied. Better im mediate results are obtained; that ts, most good 1B obtained from it shortly after being put on. But the total good ls likely to be less, for as a rule well-rotted manure means manure that bas lost considerable of its plant foods. Get the manure in the soil, if lt is likely to wash away or on it,, es pecially if there is a growing crop on the land, just as soon aa practicable after lt is made, is-the safest rule. The Progressive Farmer. Road Law Is Unjust. A viciously unjust law ls that which compels young men-who oftentimes do not own a foot of land or a horse and do not directly need the roads, to build and keep up the county roads, while men who own thousands nf acres or have bought lang along these roads on speculation and never do a stroke of work on them, will get the fruit of this com pulsory labor of these poor young men. Also big fanners and mer chants who haul heavy loads over, these roads, some every day, but have passed the ag? limit, need not do a lick of work on these roads. It seems to me that lt should and not the individual.-Otto Johnson In The Progressive Farmer. ?

He Couldn't Give Up His British Title. Sir Edgar Speyer, great London banker, hao Just arrived in" the United States, a baronet in spite of himself. He can't get rid of his title. He may drop lt and ask his friends and the public to forget it. but the British government will not forget. Once you get a British title lt will stick so-they descend to posterity. The baronet is of the great Ger man banking family of Franwfort on-the-Maln. His brother, James Speyer, ls the head ot one of the greatest banking houses in the United States, it not in the world. So great has been the feeling in England recently against Germans and naturalized Germans thal trea son and all kinds of charges were made against them. This ls a copy of the letter the banker wrote to Premier Asquith Just before he sailed on the liner Phila delphia for the United tSates: "There is nothing harder to bear than the sense of injustice which finds no vent in-expression. For the last nine months I have remained silent, treating with disdain the ?nany charges of disloyalty and the charges of treachery? made against me by the press and private Indi viduals. But I* can remain olleat no longer, for these charges and Insin uating suggestions have been re peated by men in public office, who have not scrupled to rae their posi tions to Iname '.ne over-strained feelings of the people. "I am not a man who can be driven or drummed by threats and abuse into an attitude ot- Justification, but I consider it due* tl my honor as a Lady Speyer. British subject and to my personal dignity as a man to retire from all public positions. "I therefore ask you to aceent my resignation as privy council .or and request that my baronetcy be re-, voked." At the' death of his fati or, Gusta vus Speyer, Mr. Speyer waa a mem ber of the three great Speyer flnnsY Speyer Bros., London; Speyer & Co., New York, and L. Spcyer-Elllsnen, Fraakfortron-Main.
