Drop the Little-Boy Manner of Doing
Things and Work With Some

along with the current; dropping into
the ruts ; slipping into the paths pointed
out by existing circumstances! This U
as I see the great mass of farmers mov

of " straightened circumstances," of
mediocre results and almost fruitless la

" humdrum " existence so many realize
barren of satisfactory results," fruitless
I U !. Ul ... i:r- ,

ant and attractive. Many a farmer ii
there who never dreams of planning for
more than the single season, while there
are others who permit conditions as they
find them to dictate their course of ac
tion. One will go out over his fields in
the spring, select a little spot of an acre
or two where the grass is failing and
" guess I will put a little corn here."
Some other spot for like reason will be
selected for potatoes, and so it goes in a
series of "patchwork" all over the fnrra
and all through the season. The plow
ing, harrowing, cultivating, etc., are all
performed at a cost augmented because
of the small scale upon which the work
is done. A little corn is produced and
fed to the hogs ; a small crop of oata for
the horses; a little wheat and a few
bushels of potatoes for family use, and
nothing to put into market to be con
verted into cash. Now to those fanners
who are always "hard up," who never
have any money to spend ior tiie piea."ure
that makes life attractive, let me urge
you to give up your aimless life and learn
to do something, to accomplish results.
Give up " playing at farming;" drop the
little-boy manner of doing things, and
work with some aim in view and some
system as a guide. :
' If you own a farm of fifty or 100 acres
or more, and it is fenced off into small
fields, the first step necessary will be to
make a good, substantial fence around
vour pasture land and (if you can do no
better) between your own and your
neighbors' and stack your other fences
out of the way. You 'cannot afford to
spend your time with short furrows,
hacking weeds in fence corners, etc. So
arrange your work as to reduce useless
expenditure of strength. The outside
of a field always costs the most (propor
tionately) to keep clean. The larger the
field under cultivation the greater the
economy in producing the crops. Decide
what proportion of your land you desire
to plow each year. If one-fourth, then
tnlrA if. nil im in nnn ttini.o fvrtn .:il

not quarrel, lou can just as well put
your potatoes the whole length by the
side of 'the corn or upon the end of the
corn rows, and your garden truck upon
the end of the potato rows, as to make
a separate patch of each variety.
I have lost much time for" want of
r roper system in arrangement of crops,
now find it a great convenience to put
them all together as far as practicable.
If I am cultivating my potatoes and wish
to work in tho garden truck an hour, the
tools, horses and crops are all together,
I don't have to load up my tools and fool
away time going to some other part of
the farm before I can begin to convert
niy labor into money. It is well to bear
in mind in all your'operations upon the
farm that time is money; that you can
not afford to do anv work that can as
well be avoided, anil that a carefully ar
ranged system of work to be followed otit
year after year will trim off the useless
or worse than useless work that cuts off
the profits wherever the work of the
farm has not been carefully mapped out.
A JERSEY BREEDER'S VIEW,
If butter cow are desired and we have
only native cows to begin with, the best
sire is a Jersey bull. For best results
select cows with large stomachs and giv
ing a good flow of milk. Let the sire be
5 years old and one whose heifers have
proved him a good butter bull ; feed the
calves well, and at anv time after the
heifers are 6 months old breed them to a
mature Jersey proved like the first one.
I would keep this up. A milk cow's busi
ness is to give good milk ; and, like the
trotting horse, the earlier in life she gets
at it, if properly fed and cared for, the
A cow consumes about 3 per cent of
her live weight daily to support life and
repair waste. If a large cow will, when
not used for the dairy, make enough
more beef than a small one that makes
the same amount of butter to n-iv for
the great amount of fodder during' the
years she is kept as a dnirr con-. nhi ia
just as good. But this is not usually the
case; a small Jersey that produces' just
a much or more butter hit than a larger
cow is by far the most economical.
Breed your heifers so as to have them
come into milking when 18 or 20 months
oil and when the pastures are fresh and
SOMETntNO WORTn KNOWING.
During the dry season of midsumer
the tires of the farmers' wagons become
loose, and are the cause of mnch delay
and vexation. A writer in the Ohio
larmer suggests a reined v that avoids
taking the wagons to the "blacksmith's
shop to have the tires cut. His remedv
consists in making a trough a little wider
nu aeeper tnan tine felloes of the wheel.
Then heat linseed oil to lu-iilinr tminL
and pour it in the trough. Have every
thing so arranged that you can immedi
ately turn the wheel slowly through the
boiling oils. Two or threo rprnlnlions of
each wheel in the boiling oil i sufficient
11 me uiisiiicss is quioKiy done, one neat
ing of the oil i ample for four w -heels,
but nsuallv a little boiline nil ia adi led
after treating tho second wheel. Tae
important Point in thin nmersa is that
enough boilingoil is in the trough to cover
the felloe as the wheel revolves when
there is a better ioh nprfnmind thin the
one done by the blacksmith. The whole
cost will be a few cents' worth of oil and
a few minutes' work. The oil can be re
turned back into the can to be retained
for a future occasion.

will make better return for feed given
than thoee which are forced to rustle.
