I HOW TO OPERATE ROAD DRAG
| There Are Few Periods During Year
When Use of Implement Will
Not Prove Beneficial.
The surface of the average country
road should be covered in one round

driven on tho inside of tho wheel
track and the other on tho outside-,
the drag being set, by means of the
chain, so that it is running at an
angle of about 45 degrees with the
wheel track, and working toward tho
center of the road. In the spring
when the roads are morn llkolv tr> he
rutty and soft It Is generally better to
go over the road twice or more.
The drag should be floored with
boards which are separated by open
spaces of sufficient width bo that the
dirt which falls over will rattle
On roads with heavy traffic the drag
should be use 1 much oftener and with
more care than on roads with light
The distance from the drag at
which the team is hitched affects the I
cutting. A long hitch permits the
blade to cut deeper than a short hitch,
likewise a heavy doubletree will cause
the cutting edge to settle deeper than
o light one.
There are very few periods of thr
year when the use of the drag dots

yet not too sticky. This is frequently
within a half-day's time after a rain.
When the earth Is in this state It
works (he best, and the effects of
working it are fully as beneficial as
at any other (
So much has been written and said
pertaining to tho greut benefith from
the use of the road drag that ninny
people beginning the use of it become
rfiscdt,Mixed before they nre well started.
They should not fool thus It
often takes a whole Bea3on for the
road to become properly puddled and
baked to withstand the rains and
traffic. After a road has been worked
^ with a drag only a short time it Is not
well to expect It to stand up to heavy
tralllc during a continued damp spoil
without being affected. However, It
will take far heavier traffic than most
earth roads receive to more than scuff

HARE'S EAR MUSTARD WEEl
Noxious Plant Is Quite General In
Western Portions of Country?
The hare's-ear mustard is most hap
plly named, as the leaves?as will be
seen by the Illustration?are very slm
ilar In shape to tho ears of a hare.
This resemblance Is not only given
recognition in the name "hare's-ear
mustard," but also in somo of tho
other common names applied to tho
plant, as, for Instance, in the names
"rabbit-ear" and "hare's-ear cabbage."
The latter scciiir to be a very descriptive
name. As is more or Iprh eon- I

her. The plnnt developes quite a stiff,
wiry stem when ripe, and during its
growing period it takes up considerable
room, crowding out other plants
and making a heavy drain upon tho
moisture content of the soil.

which the mustards belong also takes
in some very useful cultivated crops,
such as the turnip plant, the rape, cab 1
bage, cauliflower and radish, The J
hare's-ear mustard is one of the "black

slderable resemblance in leafage toward

FLOWERS IN A WINDOW BOX
If No Provision Has Yet Been Made,
Do Not Forego Pleasure Before It
Seems Too Late.
If there are some windows about
the house where you would like to
havo some plants growing, and no provisions
have been made for boxes for
them, don't forego tho pleasuro because
it seems to be late in the season.
Use Coleus Instead of flowering
plants. A row of the yellow variety
about the outside of the box, with
scarlet in the center will make your
window brilliant with color, and as
these plants are of rapid growth you
will not have to wait long for results.
They will often be found more satisfoctoi/
than (lowering plants, becauso

PROBLEMS MANY YEARS OLD :
Children of Today Puzzle Over Them

When King Alfred tho Great was I

and the snail traveled at the rate of

"When I was ten or twelve years

I suffered for several months, and

recommended tho Cutlcura Remedies.
I They cured me in a few weeks. I
have used tho Cuticura Remedies, also,
for a breaking out on my hands and

can cheerfully certify that they were
i very effective in every caao which

When the Fish Exploded.
Somebody discovered that fish arc

Two of those gasoline-tempted fish

the kitchen window, and blew the

barrel, and painted tho kitchen colling
