A Philadelphia Idea. Music mid cleaning the parlor him' never been vary cloudy associated. When the housewife wants to play tin pltino she generally waits until she has cleaned the parlor, taken a bath and dressed herself In party clothes Now a I'hlladelphlan has patented n dusMUterlug attachment which can bi attached to the,player-plano, and the ordinary housewife can now seat her self at tho plnyer-plano, obtain music via the keys, work the pedals for all she Is worth and, with her child to run the vacuum cleaner about the floor, she can have It clean In ifjlffy. The bellows of the player are attached to the vacuum cleaner by means of a special pipe, and In this manner tbe needed vacuum Is created for cleaning purposes.

The Ideal' A prospective bridegroom made his first call on bis future bride In com pany with a marriage broker nnd while In the parlor waiting for the appear ance of the fnmlly tbe broker drew the young man's attention to a glass closet containing a handsome sliver set. "Just look at these things," he said.' "You can see how wealthy these peo ple are." "But Is It not possible that these ar ticles were borrowed for tbe occasion," Inquired the suspicious young man, "so as to give an appearance of wealth?" "What an Idea !" answered the agent reprovingly. "Who In the world would lend them anything?" Natural Study. Tho teacher was hearing the class In nnture. Trying to Impress upon the children's minds the horror of cru elty to animals, she told the following story : "Once a farmer went out to milk a cow nnd n little calf switched the man In the eye with Its tall. The man took out his knife and cut off the calf's tall. Now, children, what verse In the bible should that man have re membered?" Of course- she had referred to "Blessed are the merciful," but Philip had another answer: "What God hath Joined together, let no man put asunder." Exchange.

Description of Implement That Will Make Best Mulch With Least In Jury to Plants Device Is Dragged Over Surface. The farmer's supply of moisture for maturing n crop of corn often depends upon bis skill In preserving the rain fall. This may be done by keeping a Just mulch or "dust-blanket" over his cultivated field. With this aim In view, some farmers drag a mower wheel between the corn rows. While this is successful In a large degree, It has been found that tho wheel often In jures the brace roots of the corn. The Implement that will make the best mulch with the least injury to the corn is the one described. Procure two boards 5 feet long JO Inches wide, and 2 Inches thick for the frame Be neath this frame run cross sections of 2-by-4-lnch matcrinl about V2 Inches apart diagonally with frame of drag. Let tho back ones be longer than the front ones, nnd extend toward the in side of the frame. The fniine Is fas tened together at the front end with an eye-bolt bent In U-form so it can be Dust Mulch Cultivator. fastened through the frame. This al lows the drag to, take an A-fonn if the chain hitch Is fastened on the out side corners. Across the rear end Ip nn adjustable chain for regulating the width of the spread. This Is used to allow the drag to spread and close, so as to accommodate itself to the width of the corn rows. It works all the ground between them, nnd does not in jure tbe brnce roots. The Instrument Is especially needed after the corn hns become too lnrge to cultivate with a cultivator. Itnlph A. Page, in Popular Science Monthly. PRACTICAL WORK IN GARDEN Cultivate Often and Thoroughly, Keep ing Surface Soil Loose Kill Weeds at the Start. (By It. S. MACKINTOSH, Minnesota Ex periment Station.) Cultivate your war garden often and thoroughly. Cultivation means the keeping of the surface soil, the upper two Inches, loose. Cultivate more in dry weather than in wet. Cultivation makes a dust blanket and prevents the loss of soil moisture by evaporation. To know the tricks of the enemy Is half the battle. Know the Insects and diseases wJilch attack your vegetables nnd you will know how to fight them. Sod when thoroughly broken up makes the soil richer. Tbe Job Is to i get It broken up and worked Into the soil. The easiest time to kill weeds Is Just as they begin to start. There fore, start the garden hoe and the Cul tivator early. 1 Skin Is shown and good results ob tained when the gardener does each job at the right time and In the right way. CARE OF FRESH VEGETABLES Garden Truck Should Not Be Allowed to Wilt or Lose Flavor Store In Cool, Dry Place. Don't let fresh vegetables or fruits wilt or lose their flavor or begin to roc because they are handled carelessly. Keep perishable vegetables In cool, dry, well-alred, and for most vege tables, dark rather than light places. Learn how to store potatoes, cab bages, root crops, fruits, and other foods so that they will keep properly for later use. Don't think that any place In tho cellar or pantry Is good enough to store food. Heat, dampness, poor ventilation, bruising or breaking will rapidly make many, vegetables rot, ferment, or spoil. Warmth and light make vegetables uprout and this lowers their qrollty. ro ERADICATE WILD CARROT Root of Tap-Root Type and Does Not Spread, Hence Plant Is Propagated Only by Seed. Wild enrrot Is a blennlnl or ivo-year plant ordlnnrlly; that Is, It normally blossoms nnd produces seed the second yenr after germination and then dies. Occnslonnlly a plant matures seed the first year, or, on the other band, It may live for several years If seeding Is pre vented each year. The root Is of the tap-root type nnd does not spread, hence the plant Is propagated only by Its seeds. For this reason the weed can lo exterminated If seed production Is prevented. limitation on crop yield Good Farming Requires That Lack of Lime Be Supplied Amount to Apply Will Vary. Crop yields are limited by a lnck of llmq. Good farming requires that the lnck bo supplied. The tendency of soils to lose their llinc results finally In cjover failure and gives opportunity to sorrel, plantain and other worthless plants which thrive with n lower per centage of lime in the soil. Tho nmount of lime that should be applied to land varies. If a soli Is a tenacious clay and physical Improve ment is desired, an application of two or three tons of stoiio lime may be profitable. Ordlpitrlly, lime Is applied to mak6 a soil friendly to clover and other plants; and the equivalent of one to one and one-half ton of stone llmo per acre, applied once In each ro tation, is usually a maximum amount. In many instances 1,000 pounds per acre will accomplish the desired re sult, and smaller amounts may be suf ficient. The' equivalent of 1,000 pounds of stone lime represents between 1, :!00 nnd 1,850 pounds of slacked (hy dratcd) lime, or a little less thnu one ton of raw limestone reduced to u I powder. ! Whllo somo experiments seem to I show that ground limestone has glvcri i a little better return than the caustlo forms such returns are not usually sufficiently greater to justify the uso of ground limestone nt a disproportion ate price. GROOMING HORSES IS URGED To Improve Texture of Animal's Coat and Its Appearance, Skin Should Be Cleaned Often. (By C. II. M'EnitOY, -Oklahoma Experi ment Station.) In many ways tho skin of an ani mal Is like that of a man, except that It Is more densely covered with hair, which affords protection, but leaves n place for the lodgment of dust, bnc teria and filth, and these are retained by persplrntlon. To improve the teX' ture of the coat, and the appearance of the animal, the skin should be cleaned frequently. This is probubly best done by the use of a brush and metal comb, The comb is used to remote the hard material, and care should be exorcised to use the comb lightly. Then uso the brush vigorously. Animals should be groomed Imme diately after exercising, thus removing perspiration that tends to dry on the skin. After all coarse material Is re moved, the loose material can be re moved from the hair by using a moist cloth. Manes and tails can be cleaned by using a coarse brush (mnne brush), using care to work only a small por tion at a time. Manes nnd tails should be washed once In each month nnd brushed out straight, with the addition of a blend oil, and keep it soft. In warm weather wash the horse, using wnter from which the chill is removed, and at this time rub the skin. Then dry and brush the bnlr straight. NEW HARVESTER FOR CLOVER Heads of .Plant Clipped Off to Secure Seed Contained In Them Blow Into Receptacle. This clover seed-harvester works partly on the prlnclplo of a vacuum cleaner. An engine drives a powerful rotnry-alr fan to produce a blowing nnd a suction blast of air. The "blow ing" blast Is driven under the clover as tbe machine Is driven across the field to lift up nny tangled and "down" clover so tbe cutting mechnnlsra enn get nt it. A cutter is provided to clip off the heads of the clover plants. Then Clover Harvester. tho suction current of air seizes the clipped heads of clover and cnrrles them up into a receptacle of some kind or other provided on tho body of tho hnrvester. Thus only the bends of the clover are clipped off to secure the seed contained In them, the rest of the plant being left to bo cut as liny or used in any other way desired. Farm ing Business. PREPARING CORN FOR STOCK While Little or No Difference la Found With Hogs Dairy Cows Prefer Ground Feed. While feeding experiments which have been conducted by several sta tions show thnt pigs do Just as well on shelled as ground corn, tests in the feeding of dairy cows show that grains commonly used ns feed for milk cows, If ground, result in an Increase In milk flow of close to 10 per cent nbovo that obtained If the grains are fed In tho natural state. SUGGESTIONS FROM HOG LOT Lack of Exercise Is Cause of Much Loss Among Young Pigs Push for Early Maturity. Thousnnds of young pigs nre annu ally lost through lack of exercise. The cost of the product Is lessened by pushing the pigs for early ma turity. A liberal feeding of roots to the brood sows Insures healthy pigs. Early maturity decreases tho risk from dlsensp DIFFERENCE IN MILK PRICES Until Recently Product Has Been Paid for Without Regard to Qual Ity Farmers Organizing. Discussing the cost of producing milk by dairymen and tho cost of dis tribution by dealers, Prof. Fred Has miissen, head of the dairy husbandry department ut the Pennsylvania stuti collcge, recently asserted that milk has until very recently been paid for without regard to quality, the cheapest anil poorest milk determining the price. The farmer, he said, has not made usu of collective bargaining lu the sale of milk, and us an Individual bus accepted whatever price was of fered. "The fact that milk bus always been obtainable farther away from the mar ket at less price than the difference in the cost of transportation," said Professor ltasmussen, "has made It difficult to get a rise in price of milk for the fanner. The farmer as a class Is slow to change and slow to organ ize. It has been the history through out the world that co-operation among farmers develops only under economic pressure. "The fact that milk producers In the eastern part of the United States are today organizing to save their In dtistry from financial ruin Is the best evidence of the economic pressure the Industry Is suffering. In thr solving of the crisis in the milk business today many adjustments must be niitde." HOMEMADE CARRIER IN BARN Labor-Saving Device Easily Put To gether Greatly Assists With Chores Around Stables. The dally toll about the barn In do ing chores can be lessened If a few labor-saving devices nre Installed. One of these devices Is a manure carrier. I made one as follows: The body of the carrier Is made of pine boards for the ends, shnped as in the sketch, and onto these ends I- nulled sheet-Iron sides and bottoms, as shown, says a South Dakota writer in The Farmer. Then I bent an ordinary one-Inch gas pipe Into U sbnpe, forming the frnme, and bolted It to the body of tho car rier, as shown. Then to the top of the gas pipe frame I fastened two piv oted sheave wheels, diameter six Homemade Litter Carrier. Inches. A little retaining or trip lever was also fastened to the frame and engages In a suitable slot In the end of the carrier body. This lever Is shown In the sketch, and it Is to keep the carrier body in place when loading, and to release the body so that it will swing on tho pivots In unloading. The next thing wns to put up the track. I used round steel cable pur chased from the local dealer nnd fas tened this to a post In tho barnyard suitably guyed and anchored. The other end of the cable I ran through the barn door to the opposite side. There I fastened It to the wall securely and stretched It tight. Then I hung the carrier in place and the Job was completed. It works fine and Is about as good as a more expensive one. GOOD SANITATION IN DAIRY Five Practical Suggestions Made by Clemson College for Best Man agement of Herd. i (Clemnon CoIIcko Bulletin.) 1. Have the herd examined at least once a year by a competent veteri nnrian. Promptly remove animals bus pected of being in bad health. Never add an nnlmiil to the herd until cer tain It is free from disease, partlcu Iarly tuberculosis. 2. Never allow n cow to be excited by fast driving, abuse or unnecessary disturbance. - 3, Clean the entire body of the cow dally, Hair In the region of tho udder should bo kept short by clipping. 4. Do not allow strong-flavored food, I like cabbage or turnips, to bo eaten except immediately after milking. Clmnges In feed should bo made grnd unlly. R. Provide fresh, pure drinking wa ! ler in abundance. INCREASED DEMAND FOR COW In Single Year She Produced Enough Protein for Three Steers and Fat for Two. Dairy products, like everything else, nre increasing in price and we find now ns never before an Increasing de mand for the dnlry cow. If we stop to consider a few of her performances we -will find that in a single year she will produce enough protein for three steers, enough fat for two, ash enough to- build the skeletons for three, over fflO worth of milk mignr, and mnnure vulucd at ?:?0.
