'IK/y—..i * t MANY ACRES SAVED Minnesota Swamps Are Turned Into Productive Farms. One-Fifth of Total Area of State of Minnesota Is to Be Reclaimed, Ac cording to Report of Drainage Commission. St. Paul, Minn.—Reports of the state drainage commission on work done in Minnesota from August 1, 1898, to Aug ust 1, 1910, have been placed In the hands of the legislature. The commission estimates that Min nesota had originally 10,000,000 acres of swamp lands, too wet in their nat ural condition for agricultural pur poses. This vast area, comprising about one-fifth of the land of the state, is fast being transformed from swamp lands tq productive farms. Conserva tive estimates place the total area re claimed during 1909 and 1910 at 1,500,- 000 acres. Ditches are constructed by the state and by the various counties. These are made by the drainage commission only where such ditches will benefit state lands. Incidentally private lands are also benefited, and in such cases the cost is defrayed in part by asses'-- ing private lands according to the benefits. Lands owned by railroad companies are assessed like private lands. During 1909 and 1910 the commis sion has constructed or has had under construction 15 state ditches, having an aggregate length of 460 miles, re quiring an excavation of 6,828,378 cubic yards, costing $605,873.30, or an aver age of 8.8 cents per cubic yard. These ditches will drain and reclaim 141,144.- 63 acres of state land and 403,640.81 acres of private lands at an average cost of $1.25 per acre. The policy of the commission has been to drain only such lands as im mediately will become available for ag ricultural uses and lands requiring lit tle clearing or other expense to bring under cultivation. The work to a large extent has been confined to localities in the proximity of railroads and trade centers and jpen meadows and marsh lands, the commission avoiding as far as practicable the drainage of lands where life of valuable growing timber would be endangered In the construction of ditches, public highways were constructed along the side of the ditch from the earth exca vated from the ditch, wherever such construction was practicable. When drainage work contracted for in the years 1909.and 1910 is completed, there will be 400 miles of graded roads along the several ditches, constructed at a small additional cost, the average cost being not more than one-half a cent per cubic yard, or $75 per mile of road. The commission, with the co-opera tion of the United States geological survey, has made a topographical sur vey of a large area in Ottertail, Doug las, Grant, Traverse, Stevens, Pope. Swift and Big Stone counties. TbS SALARIED MEN BORROW MORE Kansas City Loan Agency Shows Few Daily Wage Earners Live Beyond Their Means. Kansas City.—A wrong standard of living prevails among men who, with care, skouM be in comfortable cib cumetanses. That is the opinion Of William YoUttr, president of the board of public wglfare and originator of the Welfare Ixian Agency. It is found ed on observation and the study of the personal history given the agencr by persons who desire to borrow money. "It isn't the man making $1.50 a day who is the persistent borrower or continuously Is verging on poverty,' Mr. Volker uftfd "It Is t!he man who makes COO month.

Clayton, Bright and Turtle lakes, and Mille Lacs lake. Plans, estimates and specifications of these proposed im provements have been prepared and furnished the counties affected there by. The legislature of 1909 appropriated $200,000 for the use of the state drain age commission. The commission says that if it again receives such a fund it will be able to drain practically all un drained state swamp land available at the present time for agricultural pur poses. Anticipating further appropria tions, the commission has caused sur veys to be made and maps, plans and estimates prepared for several sys tems of ditches, which, if constructed, will drain 100,000 acres of state land and fully double that amount of private WIN SUCCESS BY RIGHT HUES Wearing of Proper Colors Makes fc-" Worldly Advancement, Sajs New Thoughtist. Denver, Colo.—Success and charac ter are merely a matter of colors. If you want to be successful, wear a bit of emerald green. If you are nervous and high strung, wear more blue and calm down. Also wear good clothes and mingle with rich people, ever; if you are not financially able to back up your 'fine “front.” Opulence Is a matter of vi brations and by mingling with the rich you will absorb their waves. These are a few of the theories ad vanced by Mrs. Elizabeth Severin. new thoughtist. who announces the es tablishment of the Psychological soci ety of Denver. “If a man wants to know the essen tials of a woman's character, all he has to do is to note the colors she wears,” she said. “Red signifies love, and persons fond of it are emotional and full of life. Orange stands for pride and ambition. Yellow signifies wisdom. Those who favor violet are spirituelle. "Black should never be worn under any circumstances. It is the negative of all things and depresses immeas urably. "A woman should not dress accord ing to the shade of her hair, but should wear the colors that her tem perament calls for. If she wants to j change her mood, let her change her | dress. Neurasthenics and anemics "Our experience has been that the laborer who asks for loans from the agency is the man who has been visit ed by a sudden calamity. The SIOO man desires to borrow money to con tinue to live beyond his income. He fancies apparently, that in some way he will be able to pay sl.lO with a dollar. That’s what a loan would mean In his case. He is shown that he can pay his debts more easily than pay his debts and Interests, too. It Is possible the agency has given several men anew insight into better uses of money and anew view of what their living exponses should be ” Girl Now Her Mother 1 * Sister.

Wlnsted, Conn.—Highlaw- lake fish are at a discount owing to the dis covery that they dine on dynamite and like It. Workmen who are blasting in the neighborhood made the discovery by accident. Since then they have amused themselves by breaking little bits from dynamite cartridges and throwing these "crumbs” overboard to see the perch grab for them. House keepers regard the experiment with disapproval. They fear the dynamite fed fish would fry too nolsiiy, and In stead of reposing quietly on a plat ter might suddenly decide to serve themselves on the ceiling. Deep Breathing Insomnia Cure.

BUILDING A $5 HOG HOUSE Low Cost and Ease With Which They ' Can Be Moved Should Recom mend Them to Breeders. The hog house shown in the ac companying Illustration is ten feet long by five feet wide, the shed seven feet, and the open pen in front three feet. The pen is three feet high, the shed four feet at front, sloping to three at the back, our corner posts, 2 by 4. three feet long, and two up right at front of roof. 2 by 4. four feet long; six boards one foot wide aud 16 feet long make the sides and ends; boards one foot wide aud seven feet long, cut from corner to corner, will give necessary slope to the roof. The roof may be of board, iron, or any roofing. If Iron Is used It should be laid over bulldtng paper to prevent sweating, writes Stanley Wells In the American Agriculturist. if made of pine these bouses cost about $5 each, but when made of na tive lumber they cost less When a ltd is put over the opening in front the The Hog House in Position. bouses are weatherproof and safe for farrowing sows at any season. In ex tremely cold spells I have warmed them with a small oil stove and made them as comfortable as a high-priced, artificially heated house could be made. Five ten-foot boards make a floor, which can be laid in seasons when one is necessary, and when not In use can be easily taken up and stored away for another year Any man can easily move one of these houses with a stoneboat, and when they are to be moved a distance, two can be put on a hay frame. The low cost and the ease with which they are moved should recommend a house of this kind to the renter, who is liable to find poor facilities for hog raisiug on many farms. RATION FOR GROWING PIGS As Feeding Capacity of One Differs From Another It Is impossible to Say What Is Best. It Is impossible for anyone to say what Is the best ration for growing pigs. The feeding capacity of one dif fers from another. We have been feeding for years, yet are all the time looking and anticipating some way to produce better results. Sometimes we think we are feeding mere grain than necessary, then again we think we are not feeding enough. Asa rule more pigs are underfed than overfed, says the Swine Herd. We find a good ra tion for developing youngsters in five pounds of O. P. oil-meal, 10 pounds of wheat bran or middlings, 15 pounds of cornmeal and one pound of salt well mixed in a barrel with milk and warm water, feeding all they will eat up clean morning and night. If you have apples, cabbage or rootn feed them at noon. After they have eaten their evening slop feed them one pound of corn to each pound of live weight of pigs. Ground wheat, barley or oats can be substituted for a por tion of the bran and middlings If de sired. For the brood sows we add one bushel of cut alfalfa to this mixture in winter. They eat It with a relish, hut small pigs do not like the alfalfa mix ture a. well. They leave a large por tion of the alfalfa in the trough un eaten, unless it has been soaked In boiling water several hours prior to feeding. USEFULNESS OF FEED CUTTER Particularly Beneficial in Chopping Hay and Fodder, Because Quan tity Can Be Measured. No farmer who owns even three head of stock can afford to be with out a feed cutter, although there are thousands of good-sized farms that have never yet Introduced this useful little machine In England 90 per cent of all the farmers use cut feed, only 10 per cent being adverse to the use of the cut ter. The feed cutter Is particularly bene ficial in chopping hay and fodder, be cause the quantity may be more eas ily measured, and when chopped and mixed with a small amount of water all dust is prevented. When hay is scarce, clean oat straw chopped with hay and mixed with bran or meal, and slightly moistened, aids mastication and digestion. Chopped feed is particularly good for work horses when they have but a comparatively short time ,u which to feed A horse Is unable to masticate a sufficient amount of roughage with in a few minutes and where the feed ing time is shortened by stress of work the feed should always he chop tied. These machines can be run by power or hand and are so Inexpensive 'hat the cost Is no reason why every farmer shouid not avail himself of ’heir use Investigate Market Needs. The wise producer will invariably look to the needs of the market be fore fully determining on his policy in supplying any commodity This busi ness like precaution will bold as good In the poultry business as anywhere else. Feeding Young Pigs. Most of the fanners do not feed their young pigs often enough, b"* will give them too much a- one time They should get their feed eight or nine times a day. and only a lutle at a time If good and quick growth I obtained.

The Illustration shows a method o? arranging the stable gutter so that ali the moisture In the stall will run into the stable gutter at once, thug leaving the bedding clean and dry at ali times, 1 and saving labor In grooming the an!- j male. The gutter Is arranged to run along the lower end of the stalls, just back of the animals, and Is best made In a sub-floor of concrete, to Insure permanency, says the Homestead. The planking that forms the stall floor is then laid across the gutter, and above Tn —* r , j■ • Arrangement of Gutter. same one-half Inch holes are bored through the boards for the moisture to pass through. These holes should not be bored in regular rows as the wood is more apt te break out easier If the grain is thus broken, but by arranging so tnat no two holes are in a direct line along the horizontal length of board the planking will last far longer. The stall floor should have a slight slant to this point, and the gutter must have slope enough to drain all moisture outside to the com post heap. FEEDING RACK FOR SHEEP illustration Showing One That Is Very Convenient and Prevents Accidents in Slats. The accompanying illustrations show the construction of a sheep rack that Is very convenient nnd safe, writes M. A. .tones of Colo.-*do in the Farm and Home. It often happens that in a carelessly constructed sheep rack the sheep get their necks caught in the slats and are strangled. This rack prevents anything of that sort. Tho slats, b, are made of inch boaids rounded at the top and about eight Inches high. C la a movable side which may be dropped down to pro- Details of Safe Sheep Feeder. vent the sheep from eating out of the rack. This side Is regulated by a piece of strap iron, and, which fits into the slot In the side piece of the rack, a. E is a box like projection in the center of the rack which keeps the fodder from being fed out so rapidly that It will be wasted. The ends of this rack are binged in such a way that they may be readily opened for cleaning. Pigs With Mange. For pigs with mange sprinkle a lit tle coal oil down the spine, around the head and ears and under the legs. The next day scrub the entire pig with warm water and rosin soaop. Mix a little hickory wood ashes In the wa ter, rub dry, then grease with crude petroleum, which Is the same as coal oil before It Is refined. Clean out the pens, dust with air-slacked lime, then give bed of dry leaves. Mange cornea from sleeping In hot manure or wef straw. Sheep Are Profitable. Sheep require less attention than any other farm animal. They do not have to be curried or brushed or washed; neither do they have to bo tied with halters or confined with stanchions. All they need Is good feed, clean water and absolutely dry shelter, and for this care they will re turn a better profit considering the Investment than any other animal od the farm. Handle Ewes Carefully. Ewes that are heavy with lamb should be handled very carefully and all openings where they pass through should bo wide enough to prevent crowding Many dead lambs are born when the ewes are compelled to pass through small openings and kept In a crowded place. Grow Hoga. Every farmer should grow hogs, If only enough for home use. Of course, we would not advise the farmer to -row more hogs than he can properly feed and handle. The farmer must grow some class of llvo stock for meat, and the bog Is about the easiest and cheapest to handle. Livestock UNotes m For pigs, It Is better to cook pota toes and mix them with corn chop, middlings, etc. A hog Is a hog and oadly balanced rations and foods that are Indigestible are responsible for much loss. The possibilities of expanding the production of pork are so great that we will never see a scarcity of this product*. Any man who plans to feed sheep needs a single plain shed, dry. well ventilated, yet iree from cold, search ing drafts. It Is an easy matter to get a bunch of young pigs ofT the main line on to the sidetrack and a difficult matter to get them hack again. Don't put a frosty bit Into a horse’s mouth unless you have no objection to seeing the barn kicked down And watch for mouth sores. A long-legged, narrow-chested, wasp waisted, loose-ribbed, long-coupled horse Is always to be avoided, and Is a cheap animal on the market. A horse that is liberally fed and regularly exercised throughout ths winter will stand heavy work much better than one that has been poorly kept and Illy fed. Am Unsuccessful Scheme By CLAUDINE SISSION (Copyright, 1910, by Associated Literary Press.) The affair had its inception a year after John Burton became the com pany's president. It was intrusted to his management for the identical rea sons w hich had Induced Robert Brant, owner of big blocks of stock, to choose him for the place; that is, ability to handle and fidelity to trust. And Brant had come to the gist of his request without the formality of preface. "Burton,” he said. "I want you to look up a young fellow, brainy, ener getic, honest, an all-around one, the kind a girl would be sure to faucy." There was no answer, and Brant, full of his plan, went on. “There Isn't a young man of my acquaintance that I feel like intrusting my business to when the time comes to shift it, to say nothing of my child's happiness. And —1 might as well be frank, Bur ton, I’m afraid Jacle rather fancies Scott Harney. Not that 1 object to Scott as a man, you understand. It's his ago.” Chary of words, Burton nodded. “Now, you have a better way of meeting and knowing young men than I, and I'm —In rather a hurry—on Scott Harney's account, you see.” Burtdh dropped his head in his hands for a minute. "I think," he said finally, "that I know- two who would fill the bill. One of them Is my sister's stepson, a civil engineer, Croy Perry. Tho other Is a classmate of his, Thad Mosgrove, a young fellow, of excellent business ability, although an artist, i’ll invite then, out for a month. Mosgrove will —you can have him paint Jacle's portrait, aud —yes, I think we can manage it." Robert Brant was a keen reader of men. His original judgment, augment ed by dally observation, was certainly high In Burton’s favor, yet he was vaguely conscious of a lack of Inter est, a halfheartedness, that gave him a twinge or two of disquiet. But the plan worked to a nicety. The young men arrived, pleased with the invitation, and gratified to re -111 111 I I S 1 m UIM fifl | There Was No Answer. reive attentions from men likr Burton ami Brant. An Introduction to Jacle was a matter of course, and the paint ing of her portrait followed easily. Every day saw them and Scott Har ney regular callers. Scott arrived as they left or leaving as they came. The portrait, however, did not pro gress. Burton and Brant comparing notes, decided that this augured favor ably. Conversation, not painting, evi dently was the routine during those frequent visits. If only Scott Harney could be eliminated the equation would be quite satisfactory, Brant told Burton. Burton, however, refrained from ex pressing his views, and as the month drew to Its close with definite results, Brant’s fear of failure led him to ques tion Burton as to his opinion, based on his Intimacy with his guests. But Burton evaded the question. Perry and Mosgrove had not made him their confident. Then It was that Brant decided up on a coup. Burton should have an In terview with Jacle, drawing from her. without arousing her suspicion, her prefe.ence. He himself, a listener, unsuspected by both, would form his conclusions from tho conversation. He made his plans with the great est care. The coat closet should be his coign of vantage. He was not comfortable and the key had been re moved before Perry and Mosgrove were shown In. Their remarks while waiting for Jacle were interesting. "There was simply nothing to paint," Mosgrove spoke in a guarded voice, but with the manner of one con tinuing a conversation. "Outside of an idiot asylum I never saw such va cancy of expression. My opinion Is that she’s less than half-witted. I think. Perry, that I understand Bur- FRENCH WOMAN IN HISTORY Spirit and Ability One of the Bright est Pages in the Country’s Records. The five academies forming the French Institute are for respecting traditions and rules that exclude women In other words, they are for IJonparttsm there. Bonaparte exclud ed women for the Academy of Fine Arts, where toward the end of the eighteenth century they began to take a highly honorable place. Ills despo tism tended to reduce them to the low - le vel of trivial toys In his court and camp, and on the other hand to throw upon them the colossal task of repair ,:'g not in their homes merely but In the field, factory and comrae clal houses, the ruins that his wars en tailed. The French woman had from the eariest times been used to put her shoulder to the wheel when it got im bedded in deep, miry ruts. She nev er did so with more spirit and ability than In the last hundred years. It ton and her father were trying to marry her to one of us. Scott Harney was merely a scare to hurry the mat ter along.” "It looks that way," Perry grudg ingly assented. “Still I—Mosgrove, I never saw men I liked better.” "And I liked them,” Mosgrove mumbled. "Just the kind a fellow would choose for friends. I wish— there’s Harney now. Glad of it. I was rather dreading the adieus." But the difficulty was soon over, and without embarrassment. Then they were gone, but no sooner had the latch clicked than Harney spoke. "Nice enough boys, I dare say," be laughed, "but aren't you glad that’s the last of them?" "Oh, no, indeed," murmured Jacie. “They were so amusing." Scott's mellow iaugh reached the coat closet plainly. 'That may be,” ho said, "but the minutes dragged hor ribly for me. I've the greatest news! Our manuscript is accepted." Robert Brant's eye was at the key hole. Jacle was waltzing wildly about the room, she and Scott laughing like two children. "1 wish, oh, I wish.” broke in Jacie’a soft voice, "that we could begin on another. How tiresome to wait till you nnd Annie are settled. But let’a see—how would it do for me to start the Htory? Then you and she, when you’re rendy, write up to me?” 'The very thing." A minute later Scott’s heels tapped smartly on the pavement, and Jacie’a laugh still bubbled when the portlera swung back to admit Burton. "Delighted, I'm sure,” was her greet ing. "Perhaps, though, you, like tho rest, have come to say goodby.” The keyhole of the coatroom was In direct line with Jacle on the sofa. Robert Brant distinctly saw Burton draw up a chair and take Jade’s band. Also he heard distinctly every word that was uttered. Moreover, he waa struck by a peculiar quality In Bur ton's tones. “Jacle,” Burton began. "I wish — will you explain? —about the portrait, you know. Why—wasn't it —finished?" "Oh." she said, easily, “that was because poor Mr. Mosgrove couldn’t paint ’nothing.’ He said so in thla very room not half an hour ago. Mr. Perry agreed.” ‘‘Jacio.’’ (Burton’s voice was appeal ing), "I don’t know what tricks you've been playing, but you've sent away two thoroughly nice men. Scott Har ney ” "He's gone, too.” "But Jacie, It seems desirable—" "Thanks for yours and papa's inter est.” She sm'.led sweetly. “Perhaps your next plan to secure a husband for me v ill be more successful." Burtrn's consternation was ludi crous. His crimsoned forehead show ed b< ads of perspiration and his stif fened tongue could only stammer the one word "How?” ’How?” Jacle managed to repeat. | Why, I stood behind a screen not an arm’s length away, during the whole of the conspiracy. And those two dear boys! Oh. Mr. Burton, when I plnyed daft you ought to have seen thou. Next time " ‘'There'll he no next time." Bur lon's tones had in them remarkable decision. “I've been so miserable, Ja cle, and now I'm so happy that you’ve sent them all away. I’m afraid I'm too —Jacie, if you'll take me——" "Oh, quite so. I meant to all the time. If we Just had papa’s consent now, I should be blissfuly happy." Jacle’s happiness was speedily as sured, but Robert Brant’s assumption of surprise upon entering the room was noticeably lacking In genuineness, nnd he soon went out mumbling. Enough, however, was audible as the door closed to Justify tho followlbg reading: "Just the one, by Jove. Why the deuce didn’t I know it long ago. and have tho worry over?" The Worth-While Person. Certain qualities go to the making of any human being whom other hu man beings esteem. Certain ingredi ents are as necessary to a man as flour and yeast to bread, or Iron and carbon to steel. You cannot make them any other way. There is a com bination of steadiness of purpose, breadth of mind, kindliness, whole some common sense, justlco, perhaps a flash of humor, certainly a capacity for the task In hand, that produces a worth-while person. The combination occurs in every rank In life. You find It as often in the kitchen as in the parlor; oftener, perhaps, in the field than in the office.
