Kerosene poured on the top of a bur

three inches below the surface.
Oftentimes the fact that the butter
comes hard is due to the cow not get
ting the salt she needs. Once a week
is hardly often enough to salt the cow
that is giving a generous flow of milk.
The productive capacity of certain
types of humanity seems to be on a
par with the virility and fecundity of
certain kinds of weeds. Not being able
to perform a useful mission in life, the
natural instinct of self perpetuation
seems to be allowed full sway.
When the family cow is giving a
good supply of milk she should be
given free access to all the salt she
wants. This will keep her in good con
dition, satisfying her physical needs
and keeping her capacity to digest and
assimilate the food she eats at a maxi
The good wife has more grounds for
a kick on an empty wood box or water
pail than the man of the house has on
an empty salt cellar or pepper shaker.
Moreover, it is quite likely to be the
fellow who neglects the wood box who
is most exacting when it comes to the
table service.
A recent report is to the effect that
peanuts are found growing wild
throughout Nigeria and that immense
quantities could be grown for export.
As it is, due to lack of enterprise on the
part of the people, not enough of the
goobers are grown to supply the home i
demand for them as food.
Inasmuch as the curculio, which
damages plums and apples, does its
work by stinging the immature fruit
rather than by biting it. an ordinary
spray like bordeaux is only partially
effective. Such treatment should be
supplemented by a jarring and cultiva
tion of the trees during the months of
July and August.
Cabbage, tomato and young plants of
kinds will be much stockier and
more vigorous if they are transplanted
several times before being set in a per
manent bed. The process of trans
planting fceoms to develop an excep
tionally strong root system, which en
ables the plant to make a vigorous
growth when it is finally set out.
Since cultivation is given growing
crops not only for the purpose of de
stroying weeds, but for the stirring of
the soil so as to facilitate a proper cir- j
dilation of moisture in the soil and
radiation of heat, pains should be
taken to cultivate growing things
whenever possible shortly after heavy
rains, so as to prevent the earth from
baking and thus interfering with the
processes above referred to.
Contrary to the opinion which may
be at first quite naturally held by some
of the little folks who may now and
then glance at these notes, peanuts,
instead of growing on trees and bushes,
as do most other varieties of nuts. !
grow, like potatoes, beneath the sur
face of the ground. When ripe they i
arc pulled, washed and dried, being
put in large sacks for shipment to the
home grocer, who has to roast them
before the small boy gets them in five j
cent sacks.
Probably the common black crow is
the worst enemy of the poultry raiser,
especially on the farm where the hens
have plenty of range and lay eggs on
the outskirts of the farm buildings as
well as roam into the wood lots and j
pastures with the little chicks. While :
the crow may consume a few grubs, i
the harm he does in devouring the
sprouting corn and the damage he in- I
flicts upon the poultry justify all in j
marking him for extermination when- !
ever opportunity offers.
The operation of Wisconsin’s recent- I
ly enacted pure foodstuffs and fertili
zer laws is having some very whole
some effects. A recent bulletin on this
subject not only contains a discussion
of the use of fertilizers for the differ
ent farm crops, but-also a list of manu
facturers' guarantees as to ingredients
and a list of licensed fertilizers, to
gether with a list of twenty brands li
censed for sale this year. The report
also shows that some 600 brands of
concentrated foodstuffs are registered,
four times the number registered a
year ago. while 180 manufacturers are
now registered, three times the num
ber that had registered for a license a
year ago. before the new law went
into effect.
While there Is all too little tendency
with the average business organization
or corporation to give that heed to the
physical and moral well being of their
employees which admits the necessity
of one day of rest and recuperation in
the seven, now and then the case of
such an employer is noted. Of this
type is one of the big railroad systems
running west of Chicago and which
by the west is known as one of the
most businesslike concerns of Its kind
in the country. Some time ago this
road inaugurated a policy of discontin
uing practically all Sunday train serv
ice except that Involved In the move
ment of through mail and express and
the running of stock trains, it being
ueemed a mercy to the stock to trans
port It on a day when there would be
as few Interruptions to traffic as possl
ble. This evidence of consideration on
the part of these employers Is unques
tionably repaid manifold in the more
energetic as well as willing service of
appreciative employees.

I probably no food that gives as large a
gain in pounds as does cor... Yet if

I own use ft ' will be more enjoyable if
the ration of corn is substituted by a

as much as does the corn fed product.
i According to the last report of the
commissioner of internal revenue,
there were used for the production of
distilled liquors in the United States
in the fiscal year 1906-7, 23,474,509
bushels of corn, 6,250,898 bushels of
rye, 4,440,315 bushels of malt, 21,452
bushels of wheat, 17,301 bushels of
oats, 1,029 bushels of mill feed, 685
bushels, of barley and 4.442 bushels of
other materials, or a total of all kinds
of 34,211,231 bushels.
I The sensible attitude to take toward
j the dairy cow is that she is a machine
whose mission is the converting of
feed into milk and butter fat. In view
of the fact that the average cow has
to produce 140 pounds of butter fat
per annum to pay the expenses of
I keeping her, it follows that to have a
mission that means anything to the
dairyman she must produce consider
i ably more than 140 pounds of butter
annually. If she isn’t good for more
than this amount she is useless and
i should be forthwith converted into
i canned beef.
The large sized tiles which have been
used quite extensively in years past
for culvert purposes throughout many
of the northern states have proved a de
cided disappointment in that they have
been cracked as a result of allowing
water to stand in them and freeze. A
substitute which is being used quite
extensively is a heavy galvanized iron
piping quite heavily corrugated, which
adds many fold to its strength. Being
thickly galvanized, it does not rust ]
readily, while it is so tough and strong |
that a small quantity of water freezing
in It does not seem to injure it.
In many cities boards of health have
been passing ordinances requiring that -
all cows whose milk Is peddled to
customers within the city limits shall
be given the tuberculin test to detect |
the presense of tuberculosis. In some !
towns so large a per cent of cows are
being found infected with the disease,
with the accompanying decrease of 1
those whose milk is fit for use. that
the price of milk has advanced from
Bto 10 cents a quart. The populace j
will probably demur at this advance in
price, yet most of them would pay it |
rather than consume milk laden with ;
tuberculosis bacilli.
One of the causes contributing to
make low priced hogs, besides the ,
rather “hard times” which have held
sway during the winter just past, is ;
the fact that there has been an almost i
entire absence of hog cholera in most ;
all sections of the country. It would j
be Interesting to know, as a sort of 1
side issue on the situation, whether |
this absence of hog cholera may not be \
quite closely connected with the fact
that com was very scarce and high
last fall and that as a result it was fed
quite sparingly, whereas in previous
years hogs have been allowed to gorge
themselves with the soft and immature
corn. The situation presents several
Important aspects which it would be
worth while for experts to look into
carefully and report upon.
Recently enacted pure food and paint
laws in the state of North Dakota have
brought some interesting things to
light. A careful inspection of all of I
the brands of paint offered for sale in
the state showed that two makes of
paint advertised as being pure white
lead paints contained not a particle of
this ingredient, while another, the di- j
rectlon for the use of which contained ;
precautions not to use in damp weath
er, contained 20 per cent of straight
water. This report, which is an ex
haustive one, showed that, as a rule,
paint which was offered at much less
than the usual price did not contain
the ingredients Its manufacturers
claimed or was adulterated with water
or other ingredients. This seems to in
dicate that the best paint is seldom the

University of Wisconsin agricultural
experiment station has lately entered
into an agreement with the bureau of
entomology of the United States de
partment of agriculture to carry on
co-operative work in the matter of l
studying the problems relative to the
eradication of the insect and fungous
diseases which affect the cranberry
crop more disastrously each year. An '
experiment station has been opened at
Craumoor, where data will be gather
ed and published in pamphlet form for

of Wisconsin and other states.
It is doubtful if there is an industrial
enterprise which has ever been under
| taken by the federal government which
j gi ves promise of having such far
! reaching and beneficent effects as that
i which has been inaugurated under the
irrigation reclamation service under
i the direction of the department of
agriculture. While a dozen or more
separate irrigation projects have been
undertaken under the terms of the
i Carey act, the Tmckee-Carson project
was the first to be completed, and
! such marvelous results have been at
! tained through the application of water
to heretofore arid and barren land that
the excellence of this piece of legisla
tion has been demonstrated beyond the
question of doubt, giving additional
Impetus and meaning to every other
similar project which has been started.
By means of the irrigation system re
ferred to water Is taken from the
Truckee river ten miles above Wads
worth, Nev., and carried to the channel
of the Carson river by a canal thirty
miles long. On Jan. 1, 1906, 50,000
acres of land had been brought under
irrigation in the Carson river valley,
and this has been nearly doubled since
that time. Grain and fruit are now
growing and herds of sheep and cattle
feeding where but a short time before
the desert stretched as bare and bar
ren as a board floor. Under the terms
of the Carey act the fund provided by
the government for the prosecution of
these irrigation projects is revolving—
that is. the public land Is sold.to the
settlers. After the completion of the
irrigation works the sum expended on
the project is returned to the govern
ment by the settlers in ten annual
equal installments. As fast as it is
paid back the money is devoted to the
completion of other projects, and so
on until all are completed. The water
rights are perpetual and are held with
the title of the laud. A commendable
feature about the plan is the fact that
the purchase of laud is restricted to a
limited number of acres, which tends
to do away with speculation entirely
and encourages the location of bona
fide home seekers. Wherever water
has been turned on in these irrigating
systems the soil has shown a remarka
ble productivity. The Tmckee-Carson
i project is but one of several which
i promise to transform millions of acres
of bleak and arid lands throughout
the mountain and Pacific slope states
into veritable garden spots.
One level headed young fellow with
; whom we were talking not long since
| in reply to a question why he was this
i year working less land than last year
I said that he had learned something
from the experience of his father, who, i
with his wife and all of the children I
of an age to help, was always head
over heels in work. Our friend stated I
that the hired man problem was a se
rious one—not only the getting of any
man at all. but the getting a man'
whom a fellow cared to keep after he j
had hired him. With a quarter section
farm he estimated that he could get |
along with the help he could hire by ■
the day, while if he rented more land |
he would have to hire a man for the
whole season and find something for
him to do during that time. Working
the smaller farm, he figured that, while
there would not be so many bushels of
grain to thrash and so much corn to
husk, there would also be less work
and worry and a good deal less to pay
out for expenses of one kind and an-1
The United States government has
recently come into possession of a very
valuable tract of laud, 295 acres of
redwood timber located in Redwood
canyon, near San Francisco, the gift of
a public spirited resident of that local
ity. It seems that the gentleman was
without heirs, and, fearing that if his
property were disposed of according to
the usual process of law, this tract of i
timber might fall into the hands of
lumber sharks, he made a deed of gift
of it to the government, with the un
derstanding that it is to be kept intact ■
under the supervision of the forest |
service. This is one of the few plots of |
virgin redwood timber in the country, j
and the officials of the department are
delighted at having it placed under:
their charge.
One very noticeable fact in connec-]
tion with the horse 3 of the middle;
west, where special pains is taken in i
the raising of the heavier types, is the ;
marked improvement in the character |
of the draft horses that are brought in i
and offered for sale at the small coun
try towns. For the past fifteen years
and more thoroughbred sires of very
good genera] traits have been used and;
the character of the horses raised
materially graded up, with the result
that it is today no uncommon thing for
a well matched team of high grade
Shires or Percherons to fetch from S4OO
to SSOO.
While the common nettle does not 1
prove a pest in cultivated fields, it is j
at times entirely too aggressive in
pasture lot or on the border of grain- j
fields or garden. This is due to the!
fact that the nettle belongs to the class ■
of root stalks—that is, multiplies by |
root underground as well as by seed, ;
It follows that the only way to eradi
cate the plant is to smother it out or
dig it out of the ground, root and all.
If the latter method is followed, the
roots should all be taken from the
ground and hung on the fence or dried
and burned.

People Mast Be Patient And Not Ex
pect Great Results at Once.
Chief Engineer Crosby utters a
word of warning against the idea
I that, the proposed new' roads will be
built in a day, or a month, or even two
or three years.
“Few movements are larger than
this one,” says Mr. Crosby. “Conse
quent slowness at the start must be
expected, but increased momentum
may be looked for constantly, and
: finally the results will be all that can
! be desired if people will but be pa
i tient and persist along this line.
“Massachusetts has been at work
over 10 years. In the first five years
i less than 50 miles of road were built.
To be sure, such conditions were
slightly different. Some of the hard
est roads to build were built first, and
precedents and results of experiment
were not as plentiful now,and we may
confidently expect for faster progress
with us in Maryland. At the end of the
tenth year in Massachusetts, how
! ever, 550 miles of modern road had
been built by the state, and a more
j than equal amount had been com
. pleted by the counties. These county
j additions to the state results were
i built under the same methods as the
1 state roads, and were practically as
i good, but they never would have been
built, nor could the counties have
j known how to build them, had not
1 the state first furnished the examples
: to show the value of proper planning
j and work, and during their construc-
I tion show how to do the actual work.
“The experience has been the same
i in every other state; the only differ-
I ence has been that progress has been
I more rapid in the states that have
| started since New Jersey and Massa
| chusetts. These states have had the
i benefit of the experiments made by
their predecessors. We must not
give the others too much of a start,
however. A much longer delay in
getting off would have put us out of
the race. Now we may, however,
hope before many years to be up in
the bunch.
“The residents of the counties in
Maryland in suggesting routes for
state roads should consider questions
broadly. There are, say 15,000 miles
of public roads in Maryland. The ma
cadamizing of all of them is inadvis
able, even if it were physically or !
financially possible. But there are in
each county certain social and busi
ness centers. The connection of these !
centers with each other and the |
larger centers of one county with the
larger onesof another count}' will be |
all that is necessary. In other w'ords, j
in building these modern roads a
system should be properly planned at
the start, and then adhered to.”
Surprise of a Man Who Thought It
Had to Do With Sleep.
A man who saw on a sign the words
“muff beds” and imagined that a muff
bed must be something to sleep in, a
brother or cousin or other more or
less distant relative of the sleeping
bag. such as explorers carry with
them, found upon inquiry that his im
agination had earned him very far
from the truth; that the muff bed is
in fact not a bed at all, but is the
trade name for the inner part of a
muff, the body of the muff—in short,
the part you put your hands In.
The muff bed consists of a double
walled bag made in cylindrical or oth
er shape, according to the style of!
muff, and then stuffed with down, the
quality and quantity of the down de
pending on the character of the muff.
The making of muff beds is a busi-;
ness by itself. Some of them are sold
to the furriers in the simplest form, ;
just the bed or bag stuffed with down, i
the furrier putting in the silk or satin
lining when he puts on the fur. Oth
ers are made with the silk or satin in
ner lining attached, to be finished up :
when the fur is put on. There is at
least one concern in New York that
makes a specialty of muff beds and
turns out many thousands of them an- (
nually.—New York Sun.
Wanted a Rebate.
In a rural community in one of the
middle states dwelt a man who made
a vow in 1856 that he would wear his
hair and beard uutrimmed until John
C. Fremont should be elected president
of the United States. He kept that
vow for forty years, at the end of
which time he had nearly a half bushel
of hair on his head and face. Then,
coming to the conclusion, toward which
his mind had been gradually working
for a long time, that General Fremont’s
death in the interval had practically
absolved him from his vow, he decided
to have his hair cut and his beard
shaved off clean. On his next visit to
the county seat he went to a barber
shop and was soon relieved of the hir
sute burden he had carried for four
“How much?” he asked.
“Have to charge you half a dollar
for that job,” said the barber, looking
at the mass that lay on the floor.
“Half a dollar!” he gasped. “Don’t I
get anything for the hair?”
The Actor and the Critic.
One of the near comedians who al
ways affect to be entirely careless of
newspaper criticism recently struck
from his list of bowing acquaintances
a critic noted for his candor. The
player met the writer and a friend
while crossing a park square and ex
changed a few words of greeting and
as he passed on heard this conversa
“Who was that?”
“Oh, that is L., the actor!”
“He does not look much like an actor
off the stage.”
“Still less when he’s on the stage,”
returned the critic.—Argonaut.

“All the world’s a stage.”
“What of it?”

In the Absence of Fish Stories, This
Is Not So Bad.
Laurel, Del.. June 7.—While stroll
ing through his peach orchard yester
day Orion C. Michael renewed ac
quaintance with a terrapin which he
first met in 1876. When a boy in that
! year Michael carved his initials and
i "1876” on the shell of a turtle and
released it. Twenty years afterward
he again came across the terrapin and
added “1896” to tie previous mark
ings and a second time set the reptile
i free.
The third meeting took place at a
point not more than 500 feet from the
spot where he found it in 1896. His
initials and the figures still were leg
ible. Michael added the third date
to his old friend’s shell and again gave
him his liberty. He is wondering
where the turtle has spent the inter
vening years and when they will meet
j again.
Receivership Fees.
New York lawyers are aghast. The
best thing going is going away from
them. Gov. Hughes drove through
the New York Legislature a bill author
i izlng the State Superiutendent of
Banking to settle the business of
failed banks. Under this the Home
Bank, of Brooklyn, has just reopened
after forty-two days of suspension at
a cost of $666 for the liquidator, noth
ing for lawyers and $1190.80 for other
expenses. The receivers and their
lawyers want $300,000 for liquidating
the’ Knickerbocker Trust Company:
$40,000 each was paid for liquidating
! the Borough Bank, of Brooklyn, and
the Williamsburg Trust Company, and
j $25,000 was demanded for ten days
spent in settling the affairs of the
I Oriental Bank. Council for a receiver
of a big financial institution has been
one of the great prizes of the Bar,
; and now deputies of the Superintend
ent of Banking are going to wind up
failed banks without any help from
j lawyers.
