of the combined efforts and good will
of those who dwell together within

be paid for performing his share of
the home duties. Each child should
care for his own room and should do

A California Farmer Has His Phono
graph Play When He Is Train
ing Them.
The Colorado farmer who gets more
milk from his cows by giving them a
dash of grand opera and a bit of rag
time on his phonograph Is not a pio
neer in this novel field of farm efii
clency. George A. Gage of Sutter county,
California, claims to be the first "mu
sical farmer."
Gage raises mules and horses. He
has a big music box on his farm and
he plays band pieces, preferably sooth
ing melodies and waltzes, when he is
breaking his mule colts.
"Mules love music," said Gage. "I
discovered that ten years ago when I
drove Benjamin Harrison the orneri
est old mule you ever saw to Tuba
City when a brass band was -playing.
"The mule had one of his balky, con
trary spells that day, and I could hard
ly do a thing with Benjamin until we
got to Yuba City. You'd never believe
it if I told you the change just a few
band selections made in that animal.
From that day until Benjamin's death
he was the gentlest, lovingest old mule
you ever would want to see.
"That gave me an idea. When I
break my mule colts now I always have
the phonograph play. It seems to at
tract the mule's attention from the
harness and wagon.
"Horses don't seem to be affected
much. But mules are nearer human
than horses anyway."
Gage also avers his chickens like
phonograph music, but would not go
on record as saying ragtime made the
hens lay any more eggs.
Development of Opera.
Opera has made extensive strides
during the last century, although Its
origin Is very remote. It came through
a gradual course of development from
almost the beginning of the Christian
era ; earliest librettists were such emi
nent men as Aeschylus and Sophocles,
who accompanied their spoken drama
with a band of lyres and flutes.
But grand opera, as we understand
it today, originated about the end of
the sixteenth century, when Jacopo
Perl's opera, "Dafne," was first pre
sented. It originated through the
gathering of a small party of music
lovers at the home of a Florentine no
bleman. Theories grew into actuali
ties when a performance of "Dafne"
was celebrated in the palace of Corsl
in 1595. This opera was successfully
performed several times, but always in
private, and now the score is not dis
coverable. Disgusted Author.
There sometimes seems reason for a
complaint common among writers of
this day that artists do not read the
text they are to Illustrate. In one of
the leading magazines recently the
writer mentioned the fact that her
heroine was entirely bald a circum
stance, indeed, that might have been
deduced from the fact that she was
nearly one hundred years old.
Picture the author's disgust when
the old woman was represented vith
a head of hair that might have served
for the advertisement of some wonder
ful "restorative I"
Even worse seems the fate of an un
happy writer who wrote a story about
a boy named "Patsy." The artist met

There are thousands of farmers at
this time who are planning to set ap
ple trees next spring, encouraged by
the bountiful crops or fruit of last
summer. And this is a work which
ought not to be undertaken hastily,
but to avoid costly errors there should
be some knowledge of varieties, their
season and quality.
First of all, earnestly resolve that
you will not plant any of the early
varieties, like Duchess and Yellow
Transparent In a good fruit year you
may get all you need of these sorts
Just for picking them up of your neigh
bors. Why should you grow more of
the unsalable kinds? This Is said
under the supposition that you are
planting an orchard for home use
chiefly, says Iowa Homestead.
Of course, If you are planting a
commercial orchard, or have facilities
for shipping to a big city market, that
alters the case, and you may make
good profit from the early varieties.
But as matters stand In our rural com
munities it would be better if two-
thirds of our early apple trees were
cut out for firewood.
The Wealthy is a standard apple for
early fall, but unless you have facili
ties for cold storage do not plant it
largely south of the latitude of south
ern Wisconsin, central Iowa and cen
tral Nebraska. North of that it has
some keeping quality and the farther
north it can be grown the better it
keeps. Even in central Iowa if picked
in early maturity just as the seeds
turn brown it will keep until mid
winter. Plant Ben Davis, N. W. Greening,
Salome, Minkler or Black Annette and
you will have fruit which will keep
until you have time to sell it. But
take another hint do not take the
Destroy Trash and Litter When
ever It Has Accumulated
Cut Out Dead Limbs.
(By T. J. TALBERT. Missouri Agricul
tural Experiment Station.)
Take advantage of the bugs In their
winter quarters, the remnants of old
plants, the trash and litter about the
garden and orchard. Burn out the
feuce rows, destroy the trash and litter
wherever it has accumulated by burn
ing it or plowing it under. Cut out
the dead trees and limbs in the orchard
and make them into firewood.
This cleaning up about the orchard
and garden will destroy a dozen or
more of our most destructive pests.
For example, the plum curcullo Is now
wintering as a full-grown beetle in the
trash and litter along the fence rows or
about the trees ; the codling moth will
be found in the worm stage within a
silken cocoon tucked away under the
shelly bark of dead trees and dead
limbs; and the fruit tree bark beetles
or shot hole borers will also be found
wintering mostly as adult beetles in
deud or dying trees. -
Under the old stalks and rubbish in
the garden and abodt the borders will
be found the adult asparagus beetle,
bean-leaf beetle, harlequin cabbage bug,
flea beetles, the striped cucumber bee
tle and the chrysalis of the cabbage
worm. If you want to kill these pests,
pile and burn deud tomato and pea
vines and other remains of vegetation
in the garden and along the border.
Deep fall or early winter plowing
will also destroy many insects. This
Is especially true of the cutworms, po
tato beetles, white grubs and wire
worms which are now hibernating iu
the soil. Late fall or early winter
plowing will turn these Insects up near
the surface and expose them to an at
tack of birds, poultry and other ani
mals. At this season of the year the
Insects are in a dormant or semldor
mant condition, and when brought up

years ago It was the fashion to plant

near the surface of the ground they are
unable to go deeper in the soil or to
construct new cases or cocoons and
they are killed by being subjected to
excessive weather conditions and to the
alternate freezing and thawing.
Fall plowing and cultivation will
also enable you to have vegetables a
week or ten days earlier next spring,
because you will be able to plant
earlier on fall-plowed ground.
Never Safe to Permit Hogs or
Cattle Among Fruit Trees Un
less Grass Is Plentiful.
The question is often asked, "Is it
safe to let hogs run In an orchard?"
It will be safe If you will watch two
or three important points. One Is to
be sure and see that the hogs do not
get to rubbing the trees hard, as In
the process of scratching themselves.
Sometimes when hogs have lice they
will rub against the trees and thus
cause considerable damage or injury
to the tree. This damage may finally
end in collar blight of the apple, and
by this means the hogs also aid. In
spreading the collar blight or rot which
is far the most serious disease of the
apple tree.
Another point to watch is that hogs
do not root out the roots of the young
trees. If there are white grubs in the
ground close to the roots the hogs may
root there to obtain them and by tear
ing out the roots they would of course
do considerable damage.
The last point is the possible dam
age to the lower branches or low-hanging
fruit, but if sucft injury is observed
at the beginning it is easy to prevent
it from going further by removing the
hogs from- the orchard.
In general, it may be said that it is
never safe to let hogs or cattle run In
any kind of orchard young or old, un
less there is plenty of pasture or food
therein. When the food supply runs
low, look out
