Weed tho Flock.
Poultry specialists advise the closest
adherence to the law of the survival
of the fittest. Culling the young stock
is quite essential in the profitable
raising of a flock. It never pays to
try to raise weak, sickly chicks; kill
them and got them out of the way as
soon as possible. The most profit is in
raising the best, therefore, we believe
it pays best to cull close and early. One
gains in more than one way; these
stunted chickens rarely ever make a
gain sufficient to give a profit over and
above the food consumed and they TC
very apt to contract diseases and giw
them lo the others which would never
get a hold on the flock if they had
been culled out. Then the best of the
chicks have a better show in their ab
sence, having more room in the coons
and a better chance for foraging in the
day time.-Farm, Field and Fireside.
A New Method of Weed KillinT.
Dr. R. Heinrich, professor of agri
cultural chemistry and director of the
agricultural experiment station in
Rostock, Germany, recently published
the results of interesting experiments
in the killing of weeds. It has long
been known that many of the weeds
which infest oat and barley fields
could be destroyed by a sprinkling of
a solution of vitriol, without harming
the crops. Heinrich found that the
same result could be obtained by the
use of solutions of various manure
salts, such as saltpeter, sulphuric acid,
etc. The strength of the solution may
vary between 15 and 40 per cent, and
from 100 to 200 quarts should be used
per acre. In favorable weather, re
sults will folluw within two hours. The
weeds wither away completely. This
solution cannot be used advantageous
ly in the case of vegetables, as it does
them as much harm as the weeds.
How to Grade Honey..

ment it should be sorted and graded,
each graae packed separately and
marked. It will bring much more in
this way than if all grades are mixed
together. The following rules should j

Economy in Shelter.
Economy in the use of farm tools is
getting the most use with the least
wear and breakage. How many costly
farming tools such as cultivators, disc
harrows, self-binders, rakes and plows
arc setting out in the field or sticking
in the ground where last used, and
how many more are driven to the farm
barnyard and left standing there where
the farmer, hired man or boy un
hitched from them when he used them
last, there to be unsightly objects of
wastefulness all winter? Tools left
out exposed to the elements in winter
are not ready for use in spring when
wanted. Besides, many valuable tools
are almost useless when tre?ted in
this way a year or two, which might
be made to last a number of years
longer with proppr care. Now who re
ceives the benefit of this carlessness?
Not the farmer, surely. But it is an
ill wind that blows nobody good and
his method of caring for farm tools
blows profit into the coffers of the
manufacturers. The wholesale and
retail merchants and agents all make
a profit on the farm tools. It has b?en
said, and truly, too, that moro than
half of the farm tools rust out instead of
wearing out. How many farmers will
have to visit the sand bank to scour
his plow before using it in the spring
when two minutes and a little axle
grease rubbed on in the fall when put
ting it away would save all this time
This leakage on the farm could be
stopped. It takes but little money in
the hands of a man who has but some
knowledge of carpetering to build a
convenient shelter for all the tools
used on an ordinary sized farm. We
cannot afford to let our tools be ruined
from the lack of shelter.-Farmers'
Breeding for an Object.
Thousands of horses are brought in
to existence without any definite idea
on the part of the breeder as to the
market requirements they are to meet.
This conviction is based upon three
considerations: First, the very evident
fact that an inordinate proportion are
fitted for no special market class, indi
cating that a large number of farmers
are not acquainted with the market
classes that have been established by
the trade. Second, the glaring defects
that are passed unnoticed by the own
ers. Third, the fact that the average
horseman is vastly better acquainted
with the blemishes of horses than he
is with the proper type and character
istics that go with the different use to
which the horse is put. These three
reasons are sufficient to account for
the production of a mass of inferior
animals which do not meet the eye of
the critic until they are offered for :
Dealers by long experience and con- I

dealers, we should have fewer scala
wags produced to be held up at the
markets and ultimately sold for a
price that barely covers the price of
growing. For one thing, there is too
much mixing of blood in this country.
It is not at all an uncommon thing to
detect In the same horse traces of
three or four different breeds, repre
senting as many distinct classes of
The expense of growing a horse that
nobody wants does not greatly differ
from that of producing one that fills
the real need, and fills it so well that
the prospective buyer is ready to pay
?ood money for it. The difference is
not so much in the added expense for
the sire as it is in the minds of the
men who do the breeding. As with
cattle, or with any other farm stock,
if the breeder has in advance a clear
cut idea of what he proposes to secure,
and uses good judgment in the selec
tion of his sire, in nine cases out of
ten he will succeed. If, however, he
undertakes to produce as highly or
ganized an animal as the horse with
out definite plans in mind, in nine
cases out of ten, he will fail.-New
Prim Inc; Tree*.
Many inquiries are made regarding
the proper time for pruning trees or
shurbs, both ornamental and fruiting.
It is impossible to answer except in a
general way, as the individuals to he
treated must be each one considered.
Where considerable pruning is to be
done, the need for a practical man
with plenty of experience and a
knowledge of all kinds of trees is evi
In the case of fruit trees, it may be
necessary to thin out the branches to
permit the free circulation of air and
light-very essential things to strong,
healthy growth. Such pruning is done
in the winter, any time after the
leaves have fallen, though wounds will
probably heal with greater ease if
made towards spring. A careful paint
ing of thc wounds, however, makes it
safe earlier. Should the growth of the
trees be too straggling, they should be
pruned lightly during the early sum
mer, while the sap is active and
growth is being made. At the same
time, it will encourage the production
of fruit buds, which are set on short
As regards the ornamental trees, the
same rule will apply to the thinning
out of branches; the weaker ones are,
of course, to be removed, allowing the
strong ones to remain. If they are to
be put into shape, probably a little
pruning in winter and a little more in
May or June, when growth is resumed,
would bring about the desired results.
. The flowering trees and shrubs must
be pruned according to their respective
characters. If it is desirable to retain
flowering buds for the first season,
most early-blooming plants should not
be pruned very much until after they
have bloomed, as the flowering buds
are formed the season previous. Of
course, a thinning out will do no harm
in this respect, and will give
more strength to the rem

It is practicable to remove 1
lower limbs from trees at an

tion to removing them in thi

ing. This would tend to weaken the
trees very greatly. The most favor
able time for doing such work is in
the winter. If left until nearly spring
or early summer the wounds will heal
more readily, as while the sap is In
motion new bark is made at once. In
any event it ls desirable to paint the
wounds with thick ordinary paint or
something that will keep out the air
and moisture until the new growth of
wood covers the wound.
Much error is diffused by the use of
improper terms. A work on forestry,
before the writer, referring to attach
ment of labels or guards to trees, re
marks that "it should be by copper
wire, which stretches as the tree ex
pands." But there is no expansion of
a tree in a physical sense. A wave
flows over the sand by the sea shore,
but not by expansion of the waters.
In like manner the new wood of trees
flows over the older wood, but this is
not expansion. If the wire attachment
to a label be loosely over a horizontal
branch, and yet so firmly that it will
not be disturbed by the wind, the wire
will be covered by the new growth,
though there be plenty of room in the
wire loop for expansion.-Meehan's

jA spring medicine is a necessity if
one wishes to keep in perfect health
and vigor during the changes from
wjlnter to summer. This grand spring
tc-nic, thi3 perfect spring medicine, Dr.
Greene's Nervura blood and nerve
remedy, is exactly what the system
needs at this season. It not only
purifies, but make3 rich, red blood; it
not only strengthen? and invigorates
the nervous system, but re-energizes
and revitalizes the nerves by feeding
them with renewed nerve force and
power. It is not only an aid to diges
tion, but it creates a regular, natural
and healthy action of the bowels, liver,
kidneys, which in the spring are al

Monier D _d for developing his
recently purchased Island of Anticosti
are broad. They include tho building
of towns, the clearing of land; the con
struction of roads and railways, thc
building of a deep seaport, and the de
velopment of the natural resources of
the island, such as agricultural prod
ucts, fisheries and paper pulp.
A fair start has been made. The old
settlement of English Bay, which con
sisted of a few scattered fishermen^
huts, Is now the seat of authority on
the island. A regular town has been
laid out, with streets, a plaza, sanitary
plumbing, school, and all that goes to
make up the modern community. The
hospital is a model of its class, and Is
supervised by a surgeon of scientific
attainments. The store is thoroughly
equipped, carrying goods valued at
thirty thousand dollars. *
There is a gymnasium and music
hall combined, and quarters for mar
ried and unmarried employees. On tho
outskirts of the town is a farm laid
out and managed on modern princi
ples. It is officially designated as tho
Central Farm, and from it are con
trolled minor farms and clearings on
the island. The chief of agriculture,
M. Picard, has had experience in vari
ous parts of the world, having served
a3 an agricultural expert on the Congo
for the French Government.
It is an important part of Menier's
plan to surround himself with thor
oughly competent men. The scheme
of administration includes a governor,
M. Uomettant, who was born in New
York City, and various chiefs of ser
vice. M. Landrieu is the chief ac
countant, M. Jacquemart, a French en
gineer of note, is thc chief of public
works; M. Picard, chief of agriculture;
Dr. Schmitt, Eurgeon-ln-chief ; Mr.
Doggett, chief of fisheries; Captain Be
langer, chief of marine service, and
Mr. Gib8one, legal adviser.
Under these directors of departments
are many skilled workmen and labor
ers, the whole making an admirably
organized force. Menier is, of course,
the absolute ruler, and associated with
him as a valued adviser is his friend,
