WAYS OF SERVING RHUBARB.
Rhubarb is such a wholesome plant,
and at this season of the year very
plentiful In the market, that the poor
est purse can afford a few pounds to
serve as lt ls best enjoyed. The pink
skinned variety is more, attractive
when co' ked, and that Is the kind
to buy when getting a root for your
kitchen garden. While it is tender
and reasonable In price is the time
you can get it for winter or make the
various conserves and preserves
which are such favorites.
Many can rhubarb in cold water.
Fill a perfectly oterile jar with the
cut plant, put the jar under the cold
water faucet and fill it to overflowing.
Then seal, and put In a cool, dark
place. This rhubarb can be used for
pies very nicely In the winter months.
Spiced Rhubarb--This is delicious
to serve with meats. To two pounds
of rhubarb cut in Inch pieces, add a
pound of sugar, set on the back of the
range and add a bag of mixed spices;
cook slowly until thick, remove the
apice bag and turn into glasses. When
cold cover closely.
Rhubarb Pudding.-Spread a few
slices of bread generously with butter,
sprinkle over it a grating of nutmeg;
line a baking dish with the bread and
cover with finely cut rhubarb, add an
other layer of bread and rhubarb and
add sufficient sugar to sweeten. Bake
In a m ate oven until the rhubarb
is well one. Serve with a sauce of
butter and sugar creamed together
and seasoned with nutmeg. Or a
sauce of cream and sugar is good.
Rhubarb Conserve.-Take equal
parts of rhubarb and sugar, let stand
over night, add half pound of blanched
almonds, two lemons and an orange
sliced; remove the seeds and put all
the Ingredients through the meat
grinder. Cook until smooth and thick,
then put into glasses. Fur those who
enjoy figs, a half pound will be an ad
dition to this conserve.

BEGIN SMALL FOR SU
Profitable Fkttk <
A poultry farm built upon a ? oe ore
foundation ls sure to be successful if
lt is afterward properly managed. It
ls not only necessary to make the
right kind of a start but the work must
be regularly and faithfully performed,
day In and day out.
As a rule beginners start with great
enthusiasm and not a few build air
castles, but to many of them the same
ness of the work, the close application, j
the constant watching, soon becomes
monotonous and then there is a shirk
ing of duty neglect, carelessness and
the enterprise becomes a failure.
The point is to begin small-meas
ure the size of the initial step with the
amount of capital and experience at
It is often the case that men with
more or less available capital practi
cally put all their money in houses
and stock. This 1B a mistake awk
more so the case of those who have
no personal experience in the work.
In the parlance of today, "a man
must be onto the job." He must know
what to do and how best to do lt. He
must be aware that inexperience may
cause leaks and leaks will soon sink
It ls a noteworthy fact that the most
successful poultry farms of today are
those that have started for a small
beginning and gradually expanded as
business and experience warranted.

FACTS ABOUT THE SOY BEAN
Plant Grows Well In Cotton Region
and ls Strongly Drought Resistant
In farmer's bulletin 509 of the United
^States department of agriculture are
the following facts about soy beans:
Soy beans grow well In the cotton
region as well as farther north. They
are strongly drought resistent, aud
make a hay similar to that from cow
peas, though usually with a larger pro
portion of seed and more foody stems.
There are many varieties differing
greatly in time of growth, some ripen
ing within thirty days from sowing
the seed, while others require the
whole season. The Mammoth, a late
variety, ls now commonly grown In
the south. The Ito San is a good
early variety, commonly grown. A
number of recently introducad varie
ties are becoming popular, among
them Haberiant, Acme and Tokyo.
For regions near the gulf coast the
Riceland and Barchet varieties have
given the best results.
The land should be prepared as for
cowpeas and the seed planted in drills
at a sufficient distance to permit one
or two cultivations. One bushel of
seed will plant two or three acres,
the amount depending on the dis
tance between the rows. The planting
should be shallow, never more than
two inches, or many of the seeds will
decay. Innoculation of the soil from
an old soy bean field is desirable, but
not usually necessary in, the south.
Rabbits are exceedingly fo i ot the
young plants and sometimes cause
Berious injury when the field ls near
woods. If wanted for hay the crop
should be cut when the upper leaves
begin to turn yellow, but if wanted
for seed the gathering should be de
layed until nearly all the leaves have
fallen. The hay is easily cured and
ls fully as nutritious as that from
cowpeas. The yield of seed varies
from one to thirty bushels per acre. It
is not a desirable crop to plant with
corn, as lt matures too late.
As the seeds of many varieties shat
ter badly, the gathering for seed
should not be delayed longer than is
necessary for their ripening and many,
more seeds will be saved if the cut
ting is done early in the morning
while the pods are still damp with
Bush Beans. ' !
Some growers of bush beans have
found it desirable to save their own
seed because this is a means of avoid
ing pod spot or anthracnose. When
beans free from disease germs are
planted In soil free from disease there
is little danger of Infection. This mat
ter is well worth the consideration of
Sour Crop Remedy.
When fowls ara made bloody by
fighting the sores or cuts should be 1
washed and afterward anointed with
a little vaseline. It is also well to
beat ap a raw egg and add ten or
twelve drops of whisky for each bird.
There ls danger of canker setting ia
from neglected cuts made by fighting.
