FFnDS HIS WEALTH ABURDEN Trouble With Man Who Has Acquired Riches 1 6 That He Doesn't Know How to Spend. The nuisance for tho mnn who nos acquired great financial resources usu ally Is thnt he doesn't know what ho wants. Possessing tho resources nnd fooling the moral necessity to havo re course to them, he looks nhout for something to want, nnd ho selects the most costly thing. The acquisition of this most costly Uilng always Involves, In practice, tho separation of tho rich man from so cleiy. Thus, he will ucqulro a largo estate, or several lnrgo estntes, nnd cut himself off from the world by gates, doors, miles of drive, lodge keepers, menials, and secretaries. Or he will acquire a 2,000-ton yacht and cross tho Atlantic privately, though less quickly, less comfortably, and even less pri vately than on a great liner. Or ho will keep a private orchestra, Instead ttt being seen at concerts. All of which, though magnificent, Is nuU-soclnl and silly, and Is secretly felt to be so by the rich man when ho happens to wnko up In the middle of the night and can't go to sleep again.

Colonel Koosevelt has one of the most wonderful memories I ever heard of, particularly for fuces and names," said O. IS. Etnbreo of the Maine Farm ers Union. "I first met him some wlu;re about, 1000 at IUverhead, Long Island, when perhaps 3,000 persons wop introduced to him. '"About two years Inter I met him on the, street at Oytcr Bay. lie was In to shirtsleeves, swinging along to tho pofSlofllce, and being hailed by every ad who saw him, old and young I said; "Good morning, sir,' as we met. "&o paused, rather squinted at my faciS and slowly replied: 'Good morn ing. Yonr name is Emhrec, Is it not?' I admitted It, In astonishment at his memory, and asked. 'But where did you meet me?' and as quickly ns n flash came: 'Blverhead, wasn't It?' 'But you met 3,000 men that day.' 'O. Hint doesn't make any difference.' "Tho next meeting with tho colonel wa,s la 1012 at Nashua, N. I was passing around one car to take an other and stepped n little one side to: allow a man to pass. He casually located ut me and sang out with a stnllo: 'Hello, Long Island!' and was goflc. It Is wonderful to me that man's memory of nnmes and faces." Kenne hec' Journal. Pressing Question.

Those who nro sick of tho sight of fish, might delight an Inlnnd cousin with n basket of tho fish so highly prized becauso not near at hand Where wild game abounds and the laws do not prohibit sending It, such a gift Is a choice present.

Nothing Better In Line of Htvea When Used In Connection With, Sawdust Cushions Over the Top of tho Brood Chamber. (By P. O. HERMAN.) If the beekeeper tries to winter bees m tho summer Btnnds, In any form ot n hive or other thnn n chnff or double walled hive, It Is my opinion thnt he will loso moro In tho valuo of bees than the extra expense ho would bo ut lu making chnff hives of some kind. I think that somo sort of hlvo that could bo used for summer ndvantngo Bhould bo used. This thing of having outsldo winter cases to set over tho hives Is decidedly n disadvantage In many ways. When winter In over they cannot bo used about tho apiary during tho sum mer to nny ndvantngo whntovcr, but the beekeeper must have n houso or somo other plnco provided for them to keep them from tho weather, or they will be. warped and wenther-bcatcu had will last but a few years. Hence, the construction of a sum mer and winter chaff hlvo certainly overcomes many of theso objections. After years of experience with chaff hives used In connection with sawdust cushions over tho top of the brood chamber, I huvo becomo convinced thnt thero Is nothing better along tho lino of hives, for wintering bees on tho summer stands thnn this. Winter on Summer Stands. I, winter my bees on the summer stands with very Uttlo loss. They have plenty of good stores-plenty of young bees, nnd properly packed. I believe lu late brood rearing, so thut the hives will be full of young bees at tho beginning of the winter. At lenst this Is my plan, and my bees winter nicely. With too smnll nn entrance In u damp cllmntc, you will bo sure to havo moldy combs, nnd moro thnn tho proper Honey Bee. amount of dead bees. The trouble be- I comes aggravated In tho courso of the winter uy me ciogging or mo entrance with dead bees. During heavy Btorms In winter It fre quently happens thnt hives aro entire ly burled In snow. Whllo tho snow Is light and porous, nir penetrate It and reach tho entrances of tho hives, but should tho snow becomo crusty or Ice form at tho entrance tho bees would bo In danger of suffocation. It is well to havo all hives facing southward, so tho sua can shine on tho entrance of the hives and keep them frco from ice. After a heavy fall of snow wo nl ways sweep In front of tho hives, leav ing the snow banked around tho other threo sides, ad It will do no harm there, but will help keep off prevailing winds. SAVING BEST GARDEN SEEDS Select Strains of Grains and Vegeta bles Especially Adapted to Soil In Which Grown. Save some of the best garden seeds each year. There is no reason why each farm and garden should not havo select strains of grains and vegeta bles especially ndaptcd to the partial Jar soil In which they nro grown, says tho Farmer. Thero may bo something In changing seed occasionally, and wo should all be on tho lookout for the best of tho new things that urc coming Into notlco yeur by year, but we aro sure that It Is fully as important to bo on tho lookout for tho things that aro proving best adapted to each particu lar soli and location und saving tho seeds to continue tho strain. As a peoplo wo havo something to learn of the Europeans In this particular. Wo allow many things to go to waste that nro looked after and made to add to tho family store on other lands. CORN CRIBS OF STEEL WIRE Becoming Popular In Western States Because of Durability Much Cheaper Than Wood. Rats destroy much corn In bndly built cribs. Tho crib should bo set on stout posts capped with tin, with mov- ablo steps. A crib of this kind is rat and mouse-proof If tho proper caro Is exercised In removlug tho steps when not In use. Steel corn cribs nro coming Into use in the western corn states. Theso cribs nro mado of two-Inch mesh steel wire nnd aro durable, well ventilated, vermin and fireproof and- aro stronger and cheaper than wood. Tho who comes in rolls rec' to put up, A crib to hold GOO InishJi I n comer. lent size. Ranches of 600 Acres or More Not Desirable for Thickly Settled Statos of Union. Tho furm of GOO or moro acres de voted to one or two crops, mny bo best for the great grain-growing nnd grazing states of the West, but it Is not desirable in tho thickly settled communities of tho middle and east ern states. Tho tendency In somo of the states for tho corporation owner ship of fnrmhnnds to compete with Industrial progress In other lines of commercial activity Is back of this movement With tho advent of tho large farm worked by hired labor, the farm homo disappears, farm life, community In terest, churches, schools nnd rural ad vancement Is lost, says a writer In tho Baltimore American. Wo havo lu Its place a big system, which may bo profitable from a money point of View, but which will ultimately result In financial loss to the owners, nnd an Injury to tho best Interests of the com munity nnd state. This leads to un rest, and a divided community. The smnll farm with its quiet, comfort able home and' conveniently arranged buildings, cultivated by the owner nnd his family, makes a live, intelligent, thrifty community. When a man owns his home ho takes more interest In his stnto nnd nation and becomes a patriot In tho best sense of tho word. AVERAGE COST OF PLOWING Estimated that It Requires Approxl. mately Ten Horse-Power Hours to Turn Acre of Land. It has been estimated thnt it re quires approximately ten horse-powei hours to turn un aero of land. When tho team 'goes at a good speed one plow will turn about two acres In ten hours. This will requlro , that the horses travel 170 feet per minute and exert a continuous pull of 370 pound? or 187.0 pounds per horqe. Accorumg to statistics compiled uy the government horse lubor cost 12 cents per hour. At this rate ten hours work will cost $1.25, which may be said to bo tho average horse cost of plowing an acre. The cost of plowing an aero with u tractor depends upon many factors One must consider the slr.e of the tractor, fuel used, condition of the ground, etc One example is given of nn 8-10 tractor burning from 1C to 2C gallons of low grndo kerosene per day of ten hours, ono gallon of lubricating oil, at a cost of $1.05 for hour's work Two 14-tnch plows, traveling 20 miles a day, plowed CO ucreo nt a cost of ;10 cents on acre.
