Sir Horace Plunkett, member of the British house of parliament, who has been In this country recently, said in an address to agricultural students that there was "not a single county, not a parish, In Ireland where the farmers are not completely revolution izing the entire business of farming by I Introducing co-operative methods." And , t £ ^ ^ therc „ sc might be added that there is scarce ly a farming district in the United States where more benefits canont be realized by a closer co-operation of the farmers. The farmers are understand ing each other better each year and are coming closer together in all mat ters which pertain to their mutual in terests, but there are still greater possi bilities ahead. Describing the 900 co operative organizations of peasants In Ireland which he was Instrumental In establishing for the purpose of compe tition with commercial industries, forc ing out middlemen, compelling rail roads to provide better facilities, and dictating more favorable legislation to parliament, done : "The first thing was to introduce a system of agricultural education which extended into every branch of the industry, teaching the farmer, for Instance, to purchase every thing he requires. Implements and ma chinery, of the very best quality. They combined to consign in bulk and dis tribute their goods In the market. They combined to raise working capital for their operations. They combined to own breeding animals. They did Just what you are doing here, brought sci ence Into farming by getting It into the schools. They had the same system of Instruction and experimentation sup plied by your government," New Variety of Tobacco. A new variety of tobacco, valuable for cigar wrapping, was first raised In Connecticut from seed brought from Florida and which originally came from Sumatra. Af ter very careful and satisfactory tests results have proved beyond a doubt the value of this varl ety for growing commercially, to gether with the fact that the seed comes the plant. true to type year after year when saved under bog. The name Uncle Sam Sumatra was given to this variety. It is a cigar wrapper variety of tobacco and adapted for growing under shade In the cigar wrap per producing regions. The plants reach an average height of about eight feet at the time of maturity, and they bear an average of about twenty-six leaves before topping. The cured leaves will average about sixteen Inches In width by twenty Inches in length, al though the size varies according to field and cultural conditions. The yield of the crops of this variety Is high, being as much ns 1,600 pounds of cured the leaf. tobacco to the acre under favorable conditions. The percentage of the best grades of wrapper In these crops Is correspondingly high.—Exchange. Value of Beet Ssgnr Products. Some idea of the magnitude of the beet sugar industry In the United States can be given by estimating the value of the beets sold by the growers to the factories and of the refined sugar placed on the market by the fac tories last year. If we assume that the average price paid for beets In 1906 was $5 per ton, the total value of the 4,236,112 tons of beets harvested Is $21,180,560. If we estimate the value of the sugar at 4Vi cents per pound, the 967,224,000 pounds of sugar manufactured were worth $43,525,080. Probably the assumed prices both for beets and for sugar may be a trifle below those actually receiv ed, but these figures are sufficiently accurate to Indicate the magnitude of *be Industry. Ripening Green Tomatoes. Often when frost comes there are many tomatoes on the vines that are nearly full grown, but that have not yet ripened enough to send to market. I have picked such tomatoes and put them In a cool, dark place to ripen slowly and sent them to market when the supply had run low and prices rqn high, says a writer in New England Homestead. But for home use a bet ter way is to pick the smaller ones from the vines and then hang up the branch In the cellar, darkening the windows and keeping* the place cool. They will ripen slowly, and one may Indulge In ripe tomatoes In January, when those grown In a hothouse and not as large or any better flavor are selling at 25 cents a pound or more. Try It Wintering; Cukbage, One of the simplest ways of keeping cabbage Is to store In an orchard or some sheltered place, often alongside a fence which has been made tight by a liberal use of straw. The cabbages are stored with their stems on and are placed head down and as close together as possible. Two or three tiers are often made, the heads of the second tier being placed between stems of the lower, and so on, the piles being made of any width and length desired. The whole Is covered with leaves, salt grass hay or straw and a little soil, rails, brush or litter. Small unsalable heads when stored in this way In November will continue to develop during winter and frequently sell as well as any In February. Small quantities may be stored by plowing out two or three fur rows ten or twelve Inches deep on well drained site and placing the heads with their stems up ns close together as possible. Some prefer to lay fhem but one or two thick, while others will pile them up two to two and a half feet high, bringing them to a point. The pile Is then covered with straw, salt grnss hay or a thin layer of straw and then several Inches of soil. They are stored before freezing, and when the soli covering them Is frozen It may be covered with strawy manure or any other litter to keep the soil frozen un til the cabbages are needed for sale. An Electric Incubator. Electricity has been applied to incu bation by Otto Schultz, an electrician of Strassburg, and is the result of three years of experimentation. The appara tus is made for 50, 100 or 200 eggs, and Is designed to obviate the difficulties connected with the ordinary form of Incubator. The manipulation of the ap paratus Is very simple, and Its mainte nance depends only upon an uninter rupted supply of electricity. An automatic attachment keeps the temperature within one-tenth of a de gree of the normal temperature of In cubation. The degree of saturation of the air Is kept in the same manner. Under ordinary conditions, ninety chickens can he counted on out of 100 eggs Incubated. The quantity of elee tlcity required is very small, for an In cubator holding fl^ty eggs, ten to twen ty watts being sufficient, depending upon the temperature of the outer air For raising the chickens after they are hatched, nn electric "mother" has been devised. The upper part Is de voted to the freshly hatched chickens, while the lower pnrt Is arranged so that the chicks can run around on the ground and at the same t!me»flnd heat and protection when they desire. The electric Incubator has already proven very successful. Tent Seed« at Home. The Department of Agriculture In order to aid farmers to determine for themselves without much trouble the germination value of seeds has issued a short bulletin on the subject. A very simple apparatus for sprouting seeds Is described. It consists of a shallow basis In which Is placed a small flat of porous clay. The seeds, after having been soaked, are laid between two sheets of moist blotting paper or flan nel. A pane of glass covers the dish, which should Ik* kept In a temperature of about 70 degrees. Atmosphere of an ordinary living room is suitable if the apparatus is left near a stove at night. Several kinds of seeds may he tested at once at a trifling cost The bulletin cautions the fnrmer against extremes of heat or moisture. Fertlller Te.it» with Corn. Fertilizer tests with corn in Virginia show clearly that plowing under green leguminous crops Is a highly beneficial practice and that where tills Is fol lowed only moderate amounts of fertil Ity will be necessary to give Increased yields.

SOLD BY LEADING DRUGGISTS-504 prBOHU RHEUMATISM CAN NOT BE RUBBED AWAY > - It Is perfectly natural to rub the spot that hurts, and when the nrasdtfL nerves, joints and bones are throbbing and twitching* with the pains o I Rheumatism the sufferer is apt to turn to the liniment bottle, or some other external application, in an effort to get relief from the disease, by producing counter-irritation on the flesh. Such treatment will quiet the pain tempo rarily, but can have no direct curative effect on the real disease because it does not reach the blood, where the cause is located. Rheumatism is more than skin deep—it is rooted and grounded in the bicod and can only bo reached by constitutional treatment—IT CANNOT BE RUBBED AWAY. Rheumatism is due to an excess of uric acid in the blood, brought about by the accumulation in the system of refuse matter which the natural avenues of bodily waste, the Bowels and Kidneys, have failed to carry off. This refuse matter, coming in contact with the different acids of the body, forms uric acid which is absorbed into the blood and distributed to all parts of thq body, and Rheumatism gets possession of the system. The aches and pains are only symptoms, and though they may be scattered or relieved for a timg by surface treatment, they will reappear at the first exposure to cold of dampness, or after an attack of indigestion or other irregularity. Rheuma» tism can never be permanently cured while the circulation remains saturated with irritating, pain-producing uric acid poison. The disease will shift from muscle to muscle or joint to Joint, settling on the nerves, cansing inflammation and swelling and such terrible pains that the nervous system is often shattered, the health undermined, and perhaps the patient becomes deformed and crippled for life. S. S. 8. thoroughly cleanses the blood and renovates the circulation by neutralizing the acids and expelling all foreign matter from the system. It warms and invigorates the blood so that instead of a weak, sour stream, constantly deposit- ing acrid and corrosive matter in the mus- cles, nerves, joints and bones, the body is fed and nourished by rich, health-sustaining blood which completely and permanently cures Rheumatism. S. S. S. Is composed of both purifying and tonic properties—» just what is needed in every case of Rheu- matism. It contains no potash, alkali or other mineral ingredient, but Itf made entirely of purifying, healing extracts and juices of roots, herbs and barks.
