S| Tho Experimental Plot.
Every fanner should have, and easi
ly can have, a small experimental plot
of ground for testing the soil and dif
ferent crops. No farmer can ever
know the highest capacity of his soil
till he has fertilized a small portion
of his land very heavily with a com
plete balanced mixture of fertilizers,
planted the very host of seed, and
given the crop, or crops, extra good
cultivation. Many fanners hear or
read of 100 bushels of corn to the
acre, or several hundred dollars an
acre made in growing special crops,
and do not believe that it is possible.
They do not believe it because they
have never done half so well on their
own land, but they never put half the
amount of fertilizers, nor half as good
seed, nor half as good cultivation, to
the crops they grew. Try an acre, or
even a half acre, of ground on your
own farm this coming season and see
what results can be had from it. Be
gin now to fertilize and do not stop
till the piece of land Is as fertile as
it can well be made with at least
three different kinds of fertilizing mat
ter. Prepare the land In the very best
manner, use the best seed, and give a
dozen cultivations. You will surprise
yourself with results.—Journal of
Can you make a bran mash? Like
coffee, mashed potatoes and a few of
the everyday things, the average fur
nished is not of good quality. To
make a bran mash, take a clean
bucket, well scalded out, and put in
the measure of bran. Then pour into
the center, stirring all the time, scald
ing water enough to make it moist.
Cover It closely while hot with a blan
ket, and let it stand three or four
hours, until cold. There are many
times when a cow or horse Is sick
and weak, and needs a bran mash. The
usual proceeding Is to use any old
bucket and some hot water. A hand
ful of bran Is stirred Into a slop, and,
scalding hot, is put under the sick
animal's nose, only to be rejected. It
should be cool, or cold, and only moist
enough to hold together when pressed

IIOIT 0 Fasten Mallet Handles.
The old method of fastening mallets
to handles by boring a hole through
the head and inserting a wedge from
the outside may be superseded by a
new way that makes the tool much
er and one that conceals the
wedge and eliminates all possibility of
the head flying off as the wedge can
not come out. This new way is to
bore a hole the size of the handle and
three-fourths the distance through the
head, then cut a slot in the handle
and insert a wedge as shown in figure
1. Put the wedge end Into the hole
bored In the head and drive it in.
When the wedge touches the bottom
of the hole (Fig. 2) it will be driven
into the split of the handle, thus fore
ins the sides out and making a tight
A new method of preserving flour
aas recently been adopted with suc

of compression. With hydraulic appar

preserving the flour from the ravages
of insects, while It Is equally secure
from mold. Three hundred pounds of
compressed flour occupy the same

The number of automobiles owned
by farmers is growing rapidly. Out
of 10,000 autos In Iowa, 5,000 are
owned by farmers. Kansas farmers
spent $3,200,000 for automobiles dur
ing 1909, and $2,750,000 in 1908. In
one Nebraska town of 800 population,
forty autos were sold last year to
farmers near the town. Careful esti
mate of the number of automobiles
owned by farmers in the entire United
States is 76,000.
The Wheat Situation.
The high prices which our farmers
have run up for wheat have stimulat
ed the cultivation of the grain
wherever It It possible to raise it
Last year Chile produced 19,000„000
bushels, and was encouraged by the
results to sow many more acres this
year. Experimental stations of the
Chilean government are distributing
the best varieties of seeds among the
farmers. If American farmers keep
down their production to hold up
prices they may find they had such a
good thing that they tempted all the
world Into it and broke lip the snap.

Making Good Batter.
The best butter is made froan creair

cream from three or four days' skim

far as possible. This requires some
more work, but it makes better but

Straw in Manure*''
Owing to its abundance, straw it

be made more serviceable if made fine

While straw may soon rot after being

Another village, with a population of
1,100 and taxed at the valuation of

other public building, the only thing
of the sort being a letter box on a
Villages with but a single inhabi

being Skiddaw, in Cumberland. The
single villager complains bitterly be
cause he cannot vote, there being no
overseer to prepare a voters' list and
no church or other public building in
which to publish one, as the law re
quires. The lonely rale payer in a
Northumberland village has declined
to contribute money to maintain the
roads, remarking that the one he has
is quite good enough for its use. In
the Isle of Ely is a little parish with
about a dozen inhabitants that has no
