How to Get Rid of Canada Thistles.
Several correspondent make tho old
query of how to get rid of Canada thistlos.
The only way that hus ini't with' general
success is to prevent tho tops from grow
iug until the roots die of exhaustion, or
in other words, until tho plant dies from
want of air und light. Tha reason why
the Canada thistle is so b ird to kill out is
because the rooti are uot oniy perennial
but they spread by underground root
stocks, i. e., stems that branch oil un
der ground nnd produce new plants.
These perennial roots aud root-stocks are
several inches below the djpth of the
ordinary furrow cut, and are not usually
turned up in stirring or. breaking the
ground. One plowing merely puts the
land in nice tilth tor them to come
up and make a good crop of vigorous
shoots, as with aa asparagus bed. To
kill them the land must be continuously
plowed or the thistles othorwise out oil
lor one, two or three summers. Enough
time should not elapss between the
plowing to allow the thistles to get up
and get the.r breath, so to speak. In
hood crops they are sometimes killed
out by giving constant attention. Ob
servation leads to the belief that the
seeds are very uncertain if grown far
North. Many isoluted patches are grown
in Ch'cago on vacant lots and along ua
improvedstreets. Thase seem to spread
rather slowly by the undeiground root
stocks, but their absence in adjoining
lots and streets as favorably situated in
dicates that the seeds are not perfect.
Maktng Cream Churn Easily.
A lady friend, an experienced and suc
cessful butter maker, thus explains how
she makes the butter come quickly as
cold weather approaches: She keeps
the cream crock iu the cellar a? cool as
possib e, and as the natural result it is
too cool for good butter rr.a'ting, If the
cr-am is diioctly heated over the fire it
is apt to mike soft butter, as every
housewife knows. What she does is to
take a qu art or a little more of sweet
milk, heat it quickly over the fire, and
then mix it w.th the ream already in the
churn, a Iding enough 10 bring it up to
the liht tejipcia ure. The butter coms
very iiuickly by this method, and is hot
made soft late in the season. It is not a
plan so well adapted to butter making
la hot weather, for then the cream, unless
kept on ice, usually needs no warming.
Some use hot water instead of milk, but
the advantages of tho latter is that the
warm, sweet mi k imparts a better flavor
to the butter and grea:ly improves the
buttermiik, besides, of course, making
more of it. , '
There is probably only a very small in
crease of butter that comes directly from
the heated sweet milk. Possibly this
furnishes no butter; but it does separate
the butter particles more perfectly from
the cream thau is possible otherwise.
The yield of cream and butter from milk
should under most circums;ances natu
rally increase in proportion to the milk
as the amount of the butter, is lessened.
A farrow cow five or six months nfter
calving gives less but richer milk than
she does at first. But what avails this
to the butter maker, if he or she cannot
separate the butter from the cream in
which it is enclosed. Adding warm
sweet milk seems to entirely remove this
difficulty, and has many other incidental
au vantages, vultivtitor.
Cleanliness and Order in tho Dairy.
Canon Ilagot, an English authority in
Dairying, stems to l;e digging into somo
musty practices in the liriiish Isles. In
a recent lecture on "Dairy Farming" he
states that it was not tho cow which pro
duced the milk alone, but the food and
water which they put into her, for the
animal was only the unichino which pi o
duced the milk and cream. He impressed
upon his audience the necessity there was
for treating their cows with gentleness,
os in case a dairvraaid or any one else
ill-treated a cow, then she would not let
down her milk, and evil results would
follow. A cow mu-'t be mdked with
quickness, and no time oiii;ht to be lost
in petting the milk strained into the
settling pins. Upon the great necessity
for cleanliness, that the milk might pro
duce the greatest quantity of good cream,
ho said milk ought to beshnllow in isura
mcr and deep in winter in the pan
But if they allowed their cnam to
remain too long on the milk it became
sour, aud this effectually stopped the
farmer obtaining agood price forhisbut
ter. He believed that a great many
samples of butter shown at the re.e'nt
country show at York, were bad solely
owing to the rrenm not having been
taken from the milk until it had beitia
to decompose, heplyii-g to the question,
how long should they H0-p their cream
befcr they churn it, he was aston
ished to heir that the Yorkshire custom
was only to churn ooce a week, but he
urged them to churn every thiid day.
They shou d keep ea, h skimnaing of the
milk separate until about two hours be
fore 1 hey put it into the churn. He ad
vo atcd every farmer beias ponesed of

A farmer who his a good hors9 or twe
to turn into money e ery year is gener
ally one of a class of men who are con
sidered thrifty and frugal. There is
moMc'ear money in raising good horses,
if it is done ,ud ciously, than in any
other kind of li e stock.
A correspondent of the London Lice
btxk Juurual assert i that some horses
cannot well do certain kinds of work
which others can. owing to different

Seasonable Bee Hints. .
It is neoesary that tees receive as care
ful attention as any other of the farm
routine. The person who expects to get
profit from bees, be thore few or many
hives by letting thera take care of them
selves, soon gets disgusted and declares
bees do not pay. Yet many farmers get
fully as muca profit from half a dozen
hives of bees carefully looked to, as for
any other investment of a slmiliar
There is no season of the year what
bees require more careful attention than
during the latter part of September and
through October. Never allow a swarm
to go into winter quarters woak. Unite
two swarms destroying one of the
queens. During the day remove aa
many frames from two hives as may suf
fice to leave only enough for the bees to
cluster on. The queen that is to remain
with the doubled swarm should be caged.
Late in the evening place tho frames of
bees from one of the two hives in the
other and rel; ase the queen. Then feed
daily until tho swarm hus about thirty
pounds of honey. The food should be
the best grauulated sugar reduced
into a rather thin syrup, or about
the consistency of new honey.
Melt the sugar and water together,
so when it comes to a full scalding heat
it will be of the right consistency. Do
not boil it down too thin, but add a little
more sugar. Feed about sundown and
from this until dark, half a pint to apint
a day, nnd increase gradually. The
queen should go to laying immediately,
and by the time cold weather sets in the
hive should be full of youug bees fot
In a small way, at least, it is preferabk
to winter out of doors in a gocd bee
house. Provide suitable boxes to placi
over the hives, so thens may be six in
ches of space on the side and top, leaving
an entrance to correspond to that of the
hive, lieraove the supers, spread a steizy
cloth over the frames and pack the chall
all around the sides and over the top.
This will allow ventilation and absorb all
ris n r moisture. Place a covering ovei
the ehaiT to exclude damp, and the bees
should winter nicely.
St ong colonies that are weak in store;
should also be fed. There will th s sea
son be found many hi- es weak in stores.
The sooner t'uey are looked after and fed
to increase the stores to a full wint ring
capacity, the more profitable will the
bees become another season. Farm,

The Turkish Killer's Meals.
After his morning wulk in the garden
the Sultan returns to his own rjom,
where he breakfusts, sitting on a divan,
and the slave whose duty it is to serve
the meals, writes Oliver Harper, comes in
w.th several small pots and kettles on a
large gold trav, richly chased and cov.
ered with a felt and velvet cover, em
broidered with gold threads and pearl,
tu quoise and coral leads. These little
kettles are placed, one by one, upon
another tray, smaller, and each one is
first offered to the chamberlain, who is
obliged to eat one spoonful from each
to prove that it is not poisoned, after
which it is offered to the Sultaa, and so
on to the last. No living person ever
eats from the same tavla, or with the
Sultan, under any circumstances, or on
any occasion. At dinners given to
ambassadors the G'rsnd Vizier and other
Turkish functionaries may eat together
with the ambassadors, nud the Sultan
walks once around the table, saying a
word of greeting to the honored guests,
but he never eats or sils down with

oflicer who had spent several years in the

cut off and made part of the assets. As
a consequence there has not been a bank
failure in the Celestial Empire for nearly
a thousand years." Tho repoi ter could

THE use of a good soap is certainly calculated to preserve the skin
in health, to maintain its complexion and tone, and to prevent
its falling into wrinkles. Ivory Soap is an article of the most care
ful manufacture, and the most agreeable and refreshing of balms
for the skin.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as th
'Ivory' " they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remark
able qualities of the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and insist upon getting it.

The treatment of mnny thousands of cases
of those chronio wculiiicssea aud distressing
alltnents peculiar to lumiUcs, at the lovaiidr
Hotel and Surgical Institute, BufJixlo, N. Y.,
has aff ordod a vast experience In nicely adapt
ing and thoroughly teatlnjf remedies for the
oure of woman's peculiar molnthes.
Dr. fierce' 1'avorlte Frescrlptioti
Is the outgrowth, or result, of this greut und
valuable experience. Thousands of teetiuio
nlols, received from patients aud from physi
cians who have tested it In the more agirm
vated and obstinate cases which had bullied
their skill, prove it to be the most wonderful
remedy ever devised for the relief and cure of
suffering women. It is not recommended as a
"cure-oil," but as a most pertoet Specifls for
woman's peculiar ailments.
As a powerful, invigorating tonic,
It imports strength, to the whole system,
and to the womb and its. appendages In
particular. For overworked, "worn-out,"
"run-down," debilitated teachers, milliners,
dressmakers, seamstresses, "shop-girls," house
keepers, nursiug mothers, and leeble women
generally, Dr. Pierce's 1'avorite Prescription
Is the greatest earthly boon, being unequuled
as an appetizing cordial and restorative tonic.
As a soolUIng , and . strengthening
nervine, "Favorite Prescription" is une
quuled and Is invaluable in alluying and sub
duing nervous excitability, lirituoility, ex
haustion, prostration, hysteria, spasms and
other distressing, nervous symptoms com
monly attendaut upon functional und organic
disease of the womb. It Induces refreshing
sleep and relieves mental anxiety and de
spondency. r. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
Is a legitimate medicine, carefully
compounded by an experienced and skillful
physician, and adapted to womau's deiicate
organization. It is purely vegetable in its
composition and perfectly harmless in its
effects in any condition or the system. For
morning sickness, or nausea, from whatever
cause arising, weak stomach, indigestion, dys-
Sepsia and kindred symptoms, its use, iu small
oses, will prove very bencQelal.
" Favorite Prescription Is a posi
tive cure for the most complicated nnd ob
stinate cases of leucorrhea, excessive flowing,
painful menstruation, unnatural suppressions,
prolapsus, or falling of the womb, weak back,
" female weakness, anteversion. retroversion,
bearing-down sensations, chronic congestion,
inflammation and ulceration of the womb, in
flammation, pnln and tenderness in ovaries,
accompanied with " internal heat." .
As a regulator and promoter of func
tional action, at that critical period of change
from girlhood to womanhood, "Favorite Pre
scription " is a perfectly safe remedial agent,
and can produce only good results, it is
equally efficacious and valuable in Its effects
when taken for thnso disorders and derange
ments incidont to that Inter and most critical
period, known as " The Change of Life."
'Favorlto Prescription," when taken
in connection with the use or Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Dlsoovery, nnd small laxative
doses of Dr. Plerco'S Purgative Pellets (Little
Liver Pills), cures Liver, Kidney and Bladder
diseases. Their combined use also removes
blood taints, and abolishes cancerous and
scrofulous humors from the system.
"Favorite Prescription" is the only
medicine for women, sold by druggists, under
a positive guarantee, from the manu
facturers, that it will give satisfaction In every
case, or money will be refunded. Th.j guaran
tee has been printed on the bottle-wrapper,
