an iron axle, a long beam of almost

Growing Apple* In Stony rencs Bmuli.
About twelve years ago I bought a ,
small mountain farm of forty acres in
tbe fruit belt of Western Maryland.
Tbe farm was divided into six small !
fields, and as is customary in all such
farms, all tbe larger stones have been
dumped in tbe fence rows. Here was ,
a bard problem for us to sol re. Tbese
rows of stone, sometimes four feet
deep, were one tangled mass of wild ,
grape vines, briars, etc. Tbey were a (
constant worry and expense to us. On ,
one of tbe rows tbere stood an oldfashioned
pear tree, tbe fruit from
which was fairly good for cooking.
A grand tree it was. If this will do
so well here, why will not apples grow
just as nicely in sucb conditions. I
concluded it was worth a trial.
Every twenty-five feet I had holes (
opened In the stone piles some four {
feet across. Ail stone were removed
with an ordinary digging iron. The
oil was loosened several Inches Into
the subsoil. I planted the trees carefully
and gave tbem good attention.
I can now show the entire forty acres
surrounded with a thrifty, well-growing
six-year-old apple orchard, doing
as well as trees planted at the same
time in a regular apple orchard. Of
course these trees must be looked after
with mattock and briar scythe. They
will soon be In line bearing condition.
My neighbors said I was a lunatic, etc..
but "be laughs best who laughs last."
At present prices and outlook for apples,
It is my turn to smile. We bare
about 600 trees on the farm, and half ,
of tbem are in these heretofore barren
and expensive fence row*.?J. A. Beeardson,

The advantages of making butter in

they must do so at all. In tbe beat of
the summer, say in July or August.
are that It costs less to Keep tne ary
cow in summer. She is flash with
milk when la the barn, and In the
spring, when she is about three mouths
in calf, she comes to the green food
which keeps her well up to her full
capacity until summer comes. Thus
she gives more milk in the season.
The milch cows are often neglected,
or at least the mllkiag hours made
more irregular during the summer, the
milking being done earlier in the morning
and later at night during the long
days, to give more time for the other
work, when the ten-hour-a-day rule
does not prerail on the farm. The farmer
will be more willing to give his
cows good food and good care at the
barn in winter if they are giving flow
of milk enough to pay for it. while if
dry In two summer months, or even
In August and September, they can
find food enough In the pasture, unless
there chances to be a very severe
drought. The plague of flies would
cut down the supply of milk in those
months if the cow came fresh in the
spring. The prices of milk and butter
are higher in winter than in summer,
and are likely to be until the majority

is not likely to happen very soon. The
calf dropped in early winter is free
from the torment of ihe flies for the
first six months of its life, and is old
enough to be turned to pasture when
the grass hns started, and last, but not
least, the fnrmer has more time to
watch after the care of both cows and
calves In winter than in summer. If
the barn is warm and comfortable be
will have a chance to wutcb them, to
learn what they like best and thrive

for milk production. Breed the cows
in January that the calves may be
dropped in September, or if a second

the profits of dairying will be increased,
whether milk is sold or batter
made at borne. The skimmilk is needed

Is well worthy the consideration of
farmera whether the practice of seeding
clover on wheat Is the best When
the farmer drills his wheat In the fall,
at the same time applying fertiliser,
he follows in tbe spring with clover

on the snow in order that tbe work
may be done uniformly. The clover
secures a start, and occupies the
ground until the wheat Is taken off.

The farmer doe* this because he believes
that for a portion of tbe year
tbe land Is growing two crops at the

a Having of space. It mnst be admit'
ted that some of tbe finest crops of
clover grown are produced in tbe mannor
described (seeding on growing
wheat), and that there Is also a gain
tc tbe farmer by so doing, to a certain
extent That the oaring of space 1*
apparent cannot be denied, but wbetber
tbe system is the best Is a point worthy
of discussion at farmers' meetings.
All crops give the beet results only
under the most favorable conditions,
though certain crops will thrive and
pay even where there are drawbacks
to progress. Clover and wheat are entirely
unlike, for which reason It Is
contended that they do not conflict in
the effort to obtain plant food. Both

however, end should the clover be allowed
to produce seed It will also draw
largely upon tbe soil for phosphoric
acid. It derires but little nitrogen from
the soil, while wheat is Just the opposite
in that respect. But l>otb crops
require au abundance of moisture, and
here the question arises as to the advisability
01 having two crops on the
same land at a time when there is
liability of drought and the land incapable
of providing a sullieiency of
moisture for even a single crop. Does
the clover Injure the wheat or the
wheat the clover during dry periods?
With an aver.ige of only fourteen
bushels of wheat per acre for this country,
it is evident that tbe land dees
not yield as much wheat as It should,
and with poor "catches" of clover,
and tbe crop easily killed by drought,
it is plain that the method now practiced
of growing clover may be improved.
F armers who are "land poor",
have no excuse for having two crops

It Is expensive to sow clover on
snow, during very cold weather, as
many of th;? seed* are destroyed and
birds consume a large portion. If tbe
land- is not level the melting snow
causes uneven distribution of the
seeds, and a large proportion of them
also remain on the surface uncovered
and fail to germinate. These are some
of the causes of "poor catelle*," which
frequently induce farmers to plow up
the crop, or turn ?toc< on it. waiting
another year only to repeat tbe same
method. It is claimed tjpt younz clover
cannot endure the direct rays of
the sun, and is benefited by tbe shading
received by wheat. The fact is
that If clover land is plowed, harrowed

brushed in, so as to be well covered,
or rolled, it would icquire 110 shading.

who was more noted for the niriaat?
of his manner and attire than for his spir*

I to live, and the man who is always harping
on its evils has missed luring a good time,
you may depend upon it."
Separation implies a union. It may ho

to the world that it fails to see the eviL
and therefore blinds its eye to warning after
warning against it found in every book
of the Bible.

Oh, the bitterness of walking hand in
