A careful and intelligent nee ol ?table manure will build up the fer tlllty of any farm. The trouble witb tbe average former la that he wastes his manure. The habit of regarding manure as valueless 1* one of thi moat expensive a farmer can have. To properly conserve manure th? liquid* as well aa tbe solids should tx collected. For thia purpose lt ls w?M to have the floor* of the stalls so thai they will drain easily Into a wat?r tight gutter at the rear. Thia guttei j should be stopped at both ends, bu i one end should be lower than thi other to allow the liquids to drain t that end. Manure should be apread every da: when lt ls poasible. This la very in portant. ns lt greatly reduces th chances of losing the fertilizing eb ments. In summer lt can be apread ot the field from which the Bolling rrop have been removed, and In winter 01 grain fields. Newly seeded field should not be manured. A band cart may be used for spread ing manure. Where there are a larg number of cattle or horses, a upeela dump cart, drawn by a single horne may be used. Dally spreading insure that any leaching by raina shall rarr the leached materials Into the aol where they are wanted. PLAN OF TWO-SECTION DOO One Illustrated and Described Thi Ha6 Been Found Entirely Safe to Open or Shut. We use the two-~ectlon door on ou barn and have found lt aucceasfu Each section is hung on an enclose barn door track which ls bolted to th siding just under the cornier. By cu ting the doors at the bottoms at th same angles as the tops we can ui stay rollers to hold them in place i the bottom, thus preventing flapplr by the wind. We fastened a small ale: pulley on the inside near the top < e-uch door, and a double awning pulle to the first rafter in the comb of tl roof, writes R. Schnacke in the Fart era' Mail and Hreeze. Hy threadli Two-Section Door. sash cord through these pulley* t doors can easily be raised and lower by one man. We have never had ? least trouble with these doora a have always found them aafe open shut io Emphatically Loyal. The emphasla with which a nen made citizen swore allegiance to t United States of America recently the clerk's office at the Federal bul ing rather startled Deputy Cle Lewis, but gave him the lmpreaai that n. m. c. really meant what sulil, notes the Boston Traveler. "You formerly bore allegiance Turkey," Bald Clerk Lewis to the m as he aaked him to raise hla rlf band and swenr to the statements which he had subscribed hla name Yes." answered the n. m. c., "a now I swear allegiance to the Unit suites. To hell with Turkey." Dlllmere has a tender heart and an Impressionable mind. Not only does he sorrow over troubles visible, but, being bleaaed with an Imagination, be auff>ra over thoa* concealed from or? dinary mortal* When lt cornea to reading, DtUmere, becauae of bia tem? perament, abould select aome?ting soothing and mild. It waa a malig? nant fate that led bim Into tbe anare of the book agent who waa Bellin* "Tbe World'a Greateat Crimes" at re? duced rates and In an attractive cloth binding. When Dlllmere reached borne that ntgbt he found hla wife walting for! him. She was pointing to the opened bundle of booka much aa one of a re? lined disposition might point at a viper or a dynamite bomb. "What on earth." ahe began at once, "do you mean bj buying that stuff. Jamea Dlllmere? Why, If I caught Jimmy with a volume of crimes In hla hand-" "You aren't going to." Bald Dlllmere "They are not for Jimmy'a youthful Intelligence. A mature mind can read without harm about deeds of vlo lenee-" "That book agent muat have been ? good talker," Bald Mrs. Dlllmere grimly. "You'll have to keep those booka on your closet shelf or Johnny ?and I don't see, anyhow, why on earth you should want to read mach things when there are io many nice booka-" "I'm tired of nice books." said Dill mere recklesly. "I've had a surfeit o! recipea for tatting and prescription? for making a china cabinet out of a packing box. My mind needs stimu? lating. Anyhow, lt ls a matter of edu? cation. I am aabamed to be Ignorant of what has happened In the world." After dinner Dlllmere retired Into tbe fastness of an easy chair with his books and promptly was lost to hil family. ' H'm!" coughed Mrs. Dlllmere at laBt In desperation, "I looked at ne* coata for Johnny today." Silence. "H'm!" began ahe again. "Grace telephoned that her uncle was dead. I wonder if he left anything? She's always expected that he would." Silence. Mre. Dillmere looked at her husband His eyes were popping out of his head and he breathed deeply. "James," abe proceeded In a converaatlonal vole*. he bank failed today. Your father iiiurdered your mother I fell down stairs and broke my neck!" "I'm!" answered Jamea vacantly. Mrs. Dillmere rose and awept th* book from his hands. "Why don't you listen to me'" sh? demanded. "Whew!" breathed her husband. "They were going some in the middl* ages! If you didn't like a fellow you just put cold poiHon in his tea and If he wouldn't drink lt you choked him till he did! Nobody seemed to mind wholesale slaughter If you had money enough to awe the populace! It must have been fierce!" That night Mrs Dillmere woke up to find her husband pacing the floor "Somehow," he said, "I can't sleep. Are you sure the back basement win dows are locked? I thought I heard scime one on the basement stairs a little while ago, I don't see what ls tc prevent a burglar from walking in tl the open bedroom windows from the room. There! Did you hear that?" "It's that book you were reading" declared Mrs. Dlllmere. "Go to bed!' Dillmere persisted in reading thc books. Occasionally when the hor? rors grew too great for him to beal alone he related them to his wlfi after Johnny had gone to bed. "I don't aee how they earned a liv lng in those days," Dlllmere said om evening. "After every fellow go through his dally stunt of poisoning i few relatives, beheading a whole vii lage, robbing cathedrals and burning up castles he naturally would not havi much energy left for the milder pur suits of life." Mrs. Dlllmere woke that sight to rim the lights turned on and Dlllnier perched on a chair endeavoring t climb the wall. "James!" she shrieked. "Hush!" said James Impatient!] "I'm escaping. If I get to the top o thin wu)] and drop Into the moat bi low Caesar Berg? and hla minion cannot find me to make me drink th poison! They are burning up the boc les of the people whose heads the have chopped off, but I'll have t hurry." A little later, while ha mopped th cold water from hla person?for hi wlfe'a aim at hla head with the tun bier of water bad not been good owln to her excitement?Dillmere demasi ed: "What's the use of raising such row? Wh what did you try to drow ily ma for?" "Because I didn't want you to | through the roof In your pajamas," r piled his wife sternly. "Jamea Dil mere, you've got to give those awfu disgraceful books away!" "All Tight." said Dillmere. Bhlverln; "Put 'em In the ash can. Anyhoi I've read 'em all!" be Cause fer Surprise "Those men who are fighting bom rule in Ireland must be a queer li to think they'll win." "Why ao?"
