COLLIES MADE VERY USEFUL
Animals Can Easily Be Taught to Go
Long Distances Into Pastures
or Woods for Cows.
We do not think collies are danger
ous with children. We have raised
two farm puppies and they became
flrm companions for the children and
we never knew them to snap at the
little ones or show a disposition to

change. Collies are very useful on

The Benefit of Wood Ashes.
I had one-eighth of an acre on a
pravelly knoll, which bore only Jiune
grass, very small and thin at that,
says a writer in an exchange. I put
on three barrels of w~oodl ashes and
clover' started1 well. The next year
I put on more a'shes and had a fair
crop of clover. I plut the ashes dIi
rectly on the turf. A man bought a
farm of some1 fifty acres adjoining
mIne, and as the old1 sayin~g is "could
nt raise beanis." It' could( only keep)
oneC cow andl a horse the first year,
but. ho made what mannure lhe could(

Of the crops which I sowed ahead
of the cultivator at -.he last cultiva

growth to turn under in the spring
and to protect the land from winter
washing, rye and Dwarf Essex rape
were nost satisfactory.
IRye was sown one year when the
potatoes were taken out in Septem
ber, and a heavy sod It made to turn
under for oats in April.
Another year rye was sown on
corn stubble after the corn was cut
at the rate of one and one-quarter
bushels per ace, and it made a fair
cover crop, which I know prevented
washing, though the ground was har
rowed only twice before drilling in the

Mrs. lodgdon has seen the cotton

her work the cotton loom was little
different from the hand loom which
had been in use since antiquity. At
that time thero were many hand

says she does Dot remember whether
she ever used a hand loom, but says
she knew weavert in Canada who
were then using them.
