Why Knbber? Are Considered "Good

Irrigation For Fruit.

will bear full crops every year if they *
are amply supplied with water and

irrigated moss the previous one, I
had a full crop of plums and where I
irrigated least only a few. Where I
did not irrigate I had nothing at all.
It is exactly the same with the apples.

Farininc From Experience.
Every farmer learns much each
year about his business by the experience
ho gains. It is the most
valuablo knowledge, provided the
farmer has learned to discriminate as
to the true cause of success or failure.
It will at least teach twice the capacity
of his own soil and location. While
farmers read with interest what other
farmers have done in other localities,
it does not affect them as does de
cided 8ucc6ss or failure in their own J
neighborhood. What one man in
any locality has done others may also
do if they have like soil and condi- e
tions. Almost all the special crops t
that are grown in certain neighbor- 1
hoods are the result of experiments t
made at first with much doubt, but i
when proved a success, inciting others I
to imitate the example. In suoh case o
the pioneer who introduces such crops 1
benefits the. entire neighborhood e
quite as much as himself. He is not t
injured by the competition of his t
neighbors, for whatever the farmer grows
there is sure to be so large a
market for it that the production of a
large amount calls purchasers from a
distance, so that the farmer can sell
at his own doors instead of marketing
his spicial crop at a distance. An
inrtiiri/lnol onwacQ nn matlflr nn how
extended a scale, cannot create such
a homemarket.?American Cultivator.
Improving Old Stables.
There are thousands of old and
poorly constructed stables, sheds and ?
the like all over the Northern States r
in which cattle are kept during the
winter. These are often so cold that
the ground freezes solid. Such shel- #
ter is very inadequate and results ^
from a lacfc of building material in j.
many of tho prairie States and also ^
neglect of farmers to provide comfort- ^
able stables even when the material is v
at hand. On all farms where grain is j.
raised these stock barns can be made
comfortable with the straw. If it can ^
be baled, so much the better. Place a ?
layer of bales on the inside of the j.
barn wall just as you would lay brick,
omitting of course the mortar. When ?
the top is reached place a board or j
rail on the top bales to keep them in r
place. - e
Tf if io I'mm-oftfioolilo Viotto tlm
it ^ " ? f
straw baled it can still be used with ^
good results. Build a fence as high j,
as the wall of the building five or sis
feet outside of it and have it made
comparatively tight by placing the
poles or boards used not more than
one foot apart. Fill in the opon space h
between the fence and the building s
with straw and tramp it down as E
solidly as possibly. If flax straw can a
be used this makes the best lrind of ^
filling. It is impossible for the wind i
to blow through this, and the stable t
will be as warm as need be.?Jsew E

The churn wa3 scalded with boiling t

For Spring Chickens.
Our modern methods of living arc
changing our farming in many particulars.
The demand is now for
early spring lamb and chickens in
February and March. Early spring
chickens have to be raised in tho
vrinter season, and to do this requires
i certain espert knowledge that is the
price of success.
Spring chickens at fifty cents a
pound are profitable, and even at much
less than this one can find money in
ihe business. Besides, it gives the
poultry grower work to do at what is
generally considered a lazy season of
;he year. In fact, there is more
money to-day in raising spring chickens
and winter eggs than in any other
aranch of this business. Those who
itick to the beaten tracks are the ones
vho never make a great deal out of
;heir enterprise. But every one will
lot succeed in raisiug spring chickens,
and it is well that this is so, for
jtherwise the business would soon be
jverdone. It takes shrewd busines

" The Caute of Temperance.
The Woman's Christian Temperance
[Jnion, which has recently held its convention
at St. Paul, had a paper read before It
In which the point was made that, while
the use of alcoholic lllquors had increased
materially in foreign countries, it had in
the last ten years undergone a sensible reduction
in the United 8tates?that is, taking
the number of our people into account.
The writer of this paper went on to say that
as during that time there had been no
special agitation in favor of temperance,
as there had been no conspicuous Instance
of applications of prohibition laws,the only
reason that oould be given forthls decrease
In the consumption of alcoholic liquors in
the United States was the instruction that
had been given in the public schools as to
the disastrous effects of alcohol when taken
as tt beverage. It seems to us that this is
one of those cases of an entire misconstruction
of cause. To assume that the character
of the American people is being revolutionized
hv this class of instruction in our pub
lie schools Is wholly ridiculous. We do" not
say that the instruction is not of advantage,
but is of only slight advantage, it for
no, other reason because it is only attempted
In a relatively few localities. Even
if it were general, we should doubt whether
It would be noticeably effective. The cause
for the decrease In the use of alcoholic
liquors la this country is one which does
not need any anxious seeking, because it
is obvious to any one who considers the
subject in an unprejudiced manner. It is
growth of public sentiment against the excessive
use of liquor. In European countries
drunkenness is condoned as an offence
of slight importance. In the United States
It is the exceptional family in which the
drunkenness of one of the members would
not be regarded with intense horror.
There are few social circles that will freely

habitual drunkard, and ?ven a man who
occasionally flrjnks to excess loses caste in.

standard has been set in the upper social
classes, and la gradually penetrating down
through all of the middle and lower grades;
hence the time Is not distant when, even
among those who now look on excesnlve
drinking with toleration, the excessive ,
drinker will be tabooed as an unfit associate.

are infinitely stronger and more binding
in their character than any law that a
Legislature can enact.?Boston Herald.

At the recent hearing before the House
Committee on Territories, Mrs. Mary H.
Hunt, of Boston, speaking of the good results
that had come from the enactment of
other laws in behalf of which she had at
other times appeared before Congress, related
an Interesting Incident in regard to
Lieutenant Hobson. She snid that after

activity that made the desperate

He tried everything he could hear of,
winding up at an institute, but the drink
habit could not;be eradicated. One day ho
said he would try an original experiment j
on himself. He would take a large bottle i
with hlt\ for a dav. and whenever he !
" wanted a drink would pour it into the bottle
instead of into bis gullet. He denied
himself nothing, but went the same old
rounds, a gluss of rye here, a glass of
Bourbon there, beer yonder, gin somewhere
else, cocktails everywhere. When
the day was done the bottle contained a
mess that looked so unpalatable and
emitted so foul an odor that the man got

Deafneu Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear. There is only one
way to cure deafness, and that is b"y constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed

can be taken out and this tube restored
to its normal condition, hearing will be
