The backwoods willdo for adventure, or in which to fell the timber for farms, or till the virgin plains, but the country as a whole wants more of country air in the cities, and of city comforts in the country, and the good road is the civilizer that will soonest make this interchange of blessings possible. When the country was new and the cities small, culture pioneered, charmed "with the glory awaiting success. Cities like magic grew, and the farmer became the banker and remained the farmer still. He was a legislator and a farmer still; but the country dis trict has not kept pace with the city development, chiefly from the want of good roads, and the country can easily account for loss in population and in caliber as to culture, while the cities acquire the best the country affords. A good road means a fine breed of horses and money in the breeding of SAMPLE OF A COCNTKT ROAD. JHighways, so-called, like this depopulate oar rural districts ia the east as well as in the -west them. It means a ready exchange within the country districts, of coun try produce. It means the ability to at any mo ment deliver produce or seek a market for it by team. It means the lordly independence of the farmer because it promotes barter. It means making the country at tractive to visitors, who will seek re tired nooks for quiet, assured of de lightful drives in getting there. It means in the country parts a freer, more delightful interchange of social life. It means happiness and Joy where now reigns the dreary monotony that kills. 4 Then the old-fashioned taverns may co'me-bsk1 without the old-fashioned drinking, for they may be places of social interchange, where country statesmen, still in the green state, may put up their teams and enjoy the contest of talk and brighten their wits for higher triumphs. Dirt roads will solve the monopoly of the railroads. The farmers will cluster about busy centers, content with smaller farms, liusy centers, therefore, will increase. A back coun try that is handsomely accessible is the very life of the busy -center, and its support. Then, railroad managers, in order to maintain their expensive equipment of men and material, will so conduct their roads, with a vie w to local .traffic, as to tickle the farmer with a -victory never be fore achieved. Railroads are desirable, but they are most desirable and at their best when they serve the people best at a fair profit to the corporation, and this can soonest and best be compelled when the country is gridironed with the best dirt roads known to modern means and to modern experience.

To a correspondent who asked how to move and prune large maple trees, six or seven inches in diameter, the editor of Garden and Forest replies: In removing trees the roots are gen erally injured to :a greater or less ex tent, and those which are bruised must be cut away; it is good practice to prune in the branches to a corre sponding extent, so that there will be not more leaves than roots. can supply. Norway maples of the size indicated cannot be removed without the loss of many roots, and pruning will be neces sary. Such pruning xwill be perfectly safe, as these maples are not injured more than any other trees by this operation. A great deal of this prun ing can be effected by thinning out the inner branches, -but there should be no hesitation about cutting back limbs where this seems necessary. When the ends of the branches are pruned they should be cut back to a limb, the wounds hould be covered with coal tar, and no stubs should be left to decay. In a-eanoving such large trees it is good practice to prune the roots back by digging a trench about the. trees, say five feet from the trunk, and if this trench is filled with good soil new feeding roots will start out daring the next year, so that the tree will be in excellent condition for re moving in a year irom toe coming winter. Large trees can be removed with success, but it costs time and care and money. Persons who do not choose to go to the extra expense. however, can console themselves with the reflection that, as a rule, it is best to plant small trees, and that a tree ten or twelve feet high will probably be as large in ten years as one planted at the same time when it was twenty- five feet high. Poor Roads Keep Farmers Poor. - Under present arrangements grain can be taken to the market only dur ing a small part of the year, the usual consequence oi whicn is a crowding down of prices by the plethora of sup ply, so that the farmer realizes the lowest figures of the twelve months for most of what he has to sell, in stead of having the choice of times for disposing of his produce.

Many devices for the economical and convenient handling of feed stuffs about the stables have been frequent ly described and illustrated, but the accompanying sketch may be of value to many farmers, especially dairymen who have silos. The principle upon which these bins are constructed is such that their capacity can be en larged or diminished as desired. The illustration was recently sketched at the dairy barn of Mr. E. It. Jones. It -strikes the writer as a most excellent idea to have the feed bins on either side of the openings out of the silo, with a box 2 feet deep. 3 feet 4 inches wide, and 3 feet by 10 inches long, into which the ensilage is thrown from the silo and the meal taken out of the bin standing at either side and mixed with the silage. These bins measure 2 feet 4 inches in hori zontal depth from front to silo, but can be made any length desired. The throat from the lower edge of the in ward slanting board should be about on a level with the hinges of the door and an 8-inch space allowed for heavy meals and 10 inches for bran. One of the chief advantages of these bins is that they are 24 feet deep and the feed is raised to the top of the barn by a rope and emptied into them, thus saving a large amount of area on lower floor. The studding is made of Sx4-inch material and sided up with surfaced hemlock, which is cheap, rat and mouse proof, and having the edges beveled so as to incline toward the inside of the bin, is just as good as matched material. Such bins can 'be e on omically con structed on the inside of two-story barns, extended from the square to the ground on lower story, with doors opening at intervals on the side, so that they can be easily filled with feRAIX AXI FEED BINS. grain ;at threshing time, and later, after grain is out, used for feed stuffs. Without doubt -such bins can be more cheaply built and more econom ically roofed than those which spread over so -much territory, with an ex travagant waste at the top, besides a waste of room for passageway, as the doors at base close up the open ings securely, so that no extra expense seems necessary to make them a com plete and successful meansot handling grain or feeds in barns and stables where horizontal room is a matter of economy. George E. Scott, in Ohio Farmer. ABOUT OLEOMARGARINE. Science Shows That the Stuff" Is Almost Indigestible. It is a favorite saying with the ad vocates of oleomargarine that it is just as digestible and wholesome as butter. This is not true, and in the nature of things cannot be true. First as to its digestibility. Butter melts in the human stomach at 89.6 to 94.49 degrees and passes readily into pancreatic emulsion and digestion. As will be seen this is at a point below the nat ural heat of the human body. There is no gastric or nervous strain neces sary to expel it from the stomach, for it is a substance designed by nature for food in its own unchanged state. Oleomargarine melts at 105 to 108.32 degrees. The heat of the human body is not sufficient to emulsify it and it remains a dead, inert substance, and causes severe nervous tension and a forced gastric action to expel it from the stomach. This fact alone will show that it is not as digestible as butter. Besides it is not as whole some. Invariably butter advertises its own condition. No man or woman need be deceived thereby. Any ad mixture of deleterious elements is told at once in a loss of flavor. It is com posed of what are known as the basic fats, stearine, oleine, palmatine and a number of other delicate flavoring oils, all highly conducive to digestion. Oleo margarine is composed of stearine aql palmatine mainly and in a condi tion unfit for digestion. It is rendered at a low temperature, not above 120 degrees Fahrenheit, and any man ought to know that this is not enough to destroy any germs of disease or in fection which quite naturally might come to it, from its slaughter-house surroundings. We admonish people to cook their ham and pork most thoroughly to avoid the danger of trichina and other diseases. Such cooking subjects the meat from 212 to 350 degrees of heat; yet we are told that oleomargarine is wholesome com ing from the same derivation and ren dered at a. temperature that little more than warms it. Hoard's Dairy man. Convict lbor on Roads. It would pay everywhere to con struct the best macadamized roads, and the work should be undertaken by the state where long thoroughfares are required. We have often sug gested that it need cost very little if , the convicts and criminals, who cannot : b, e given their liberty because of their unrestrained depravity were employed at the task. This would effect a double object. It would build splen did roads at small cost throughout the length and breadth of the land, and it would tend to restrain crime. It is little hardship to the burglar or the highwayman to keep him in pris on, and better cared for, on the whole, than the average of honest laborers 'who support themselves. If he were set to breaking stone and road-build- ,ing in a chain gang and made to eat his bread in the sweat of bis face, un der a burning July sun, or in the chill of winter, he would not think that conviction of crime was such a light matter.

Investigated, by the Texas Chris tian Advocate and Vouched for by Dr. O. H. Stans bury. (From the Texas Christian Advocate.) Our representative has made a careful in vestigation of the H. E. Spaulding case at Longview, which is here published for the first time, and which will be read with great interest by medical men everywhere. In reply to the Christian Advocate's questions Mr. Spaulding said: About eight years ago while running a locomotive I contracted sciatic rheumatism in my left side from my hip down. It came on slow but sure and in a few months I lost control en tirely of that member, it was just the same as if it was paralyzed, I was totally unable to move out of my room for a year and a half, six months of which time I was bed ridden. I tried every remedy suggested, and had regular physicians in constant at tendance on me. I was bundled up and sent to Hot Springs where I spent three month under the treatment of the most eminent specialists, all of which did me no good, and 1 came back from the springs in a worse condition than when I went. I came home and laid flat on my back and suffered the most excruciating agonies, screaming in pain every time any body walked across the room, the only ease I obtained being from the constant use of opiates. After three months of this kind of agony, during which time my entire left leg perished away to the very bone, my at tention was called to a new remedy called Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, by Mr. Allison who is now train dispatcher at Texarkana, and who was relieved of loco motor ataxia of twenty years duration. At his urgent and repeated solicitation I con sented to give them a trial, after taking a few doses I began to improve. I continued taking the pills and kept right on improving until I was finally cured. My leg is j ust the same size now as the other one, and I am sure that Pink Pills not only cured me but saved life. The reporter next visited Dr. C. H. Stans bury, a graduate of one of the medical schools of Kentucky, and a man who en joys the confidence of everybody in Long view. He said: "I know that Mr. Spaulding had a terribly severe attack of sciatic rheu matism of which I tried to cure him ; used evervthing known to my profession in vain and finally recomm ended him to go to Hot Springs. He came back from the springs worse than when he went and I thought it was only a matter of time until his neart would be affected and he would die. I also know that his enre is the direct result of the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills." "That is rather an unusual statement for a regular physician to make, doctor." "I know it is, but a fact is a fact, and there are hundreds of people right here in Longview who know what I say is the truth. I also know Mr. Allison and know that he was relieved of a genuine and severe case of locomotor ataxia of twenty years standing." He Was Full Already. She Just think.

The instrument belonged to a tunic-maker. A portrait of a man scratched on bone, apparently the shoulderblade of a sheep, was found in 1857, in a Swiss lake dwelling. The swords of the ancient Mexicans were composed of bits of flint or ob sidian, set in a stick about the length of an ordinary saber. Several sacrificial knives have been recovered from the Mexican pyramids. They are pieces of flint, fashioned into the shape of a butcher-knife.

Like the " Diunaemuss" oi that decade tliey were big and clum sy, but ineffec tive. In this cent ury of enlight enment, we have Dr. Pierce's rieasant Pel lets, which cure all liver. stomach and bowel derange ments in the most effective way. i Assist Nature a little now and then, with a gentle, cleansing laxative, thereby removing of fending matter from the stomach and bowels, toiling up and invigorating the liver and quickening its tardy action, and you thereby remove the cause of a multitude of distressing diseases, such as headaches, indigestion, or dyspepsia, biliousness, pimples, blotches, eruptions, boils, constipation, piles, fistulas and maladies too numerous to mention. If people would pay more attention to properly regulating the action of their bowels, they would have f less fre quent occasion to call for their doctor's services to subdue attacks of dangerous diseases. That, of all known agents to accom plish this purpose, Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are unequaled, is proven by the fact that once used, they are always ia favor. Their secondary effect is to keep the bowels open and regular, not to fur ther constipate, as is the case with other pills. Hence, their great popularity, with sufferers from habitual constipation, piles and indigestion. A free sample of the " Pellets," (4 to 7 doses) on trial, is mailed to any address, post-paid, on receipt of name and address on postal card. Address, World's Dispensary Medi cal Association.
