Clean, straight fence rows, and fences in good repair, add materiallj to the appearance and value of the farm. It Is said that ganders and geese when once mated, can be kept as long as eight years without changing. In fact. It is rard to separate them. When it is necessary to do so they must be kept out of each other’s hearing. One part tincture of iodine and eight parts sweet oil or vaseline, ap plied externally, will sometimes re move obstructions in the cow’s teat. Make the application once each day di rectly over the obstruction and mas sage well to rub the mixture into the pores. Milk for PlB". There may be a few inen here nnd there who can grow a bunch of pigs without milk as well as with, but they are few and expert. Sweet skim milk has as yet no equal as a bone building, flesh making food, in my opinion. The Most Profitable liore. The most profitable horse to have on the farm is a good brood mare. She will raise a colt each year, and it will sell for a snug sum in the fall, re marks American Agriculturist. With a little extra care the mare will do as much work as any horse. This is the kind that the average fanner wants and is the kind he should got for his own b‘*neflt. Have at least one good brood mare on the farm; raise your own horses and some to sell. llaudlliiK Manure. Kansas Experiment Station has found thut the waste by exposure in six months ■amounts to fully one-half of the gross manure. Cornell Experiment Station says: “If the question is how to get the best re sults from a given amount of manure there is no question but that it may be done by moving it to the field and spreading it on the laud us soon as possible.’’ professor Voorhee*, of New Jersey, claims that more tiian one-half of the total annual manure product of the cow may be lost by exposure of less than four months. The manure should be spread on the laud as soou as possible after made. Corn Selection. A steady increase in the number of ears per plaut borne by Potter s Excel sior sweet corn has resulted from se lecting seed with that end in view. In 1901, the fourth year of the ex periment, but tne first one in which sufficiently detailed records were kept to show the percentages oiily 35 per cent of the plants bore more than one ear. In 1905 90 i>er cent bore more than one ear, the highest number from a single plant being thirteen. Selecting seed from the lower ear produced ou the stalk did not give as good results as selection from the up pei ear, which is doubtless due to the fact that such lower ears are ofteu poorly developed. Rhode Island Ex periment Station Reea In Fall. Unite the weak and queenless colo nies, and feed all that need It, before the weather becomes too cold. Prof. D. Everett Lyon, in the Farm Journal, says that as a rule colonies wintered outdoors will not require more than twenty-five pounds of stores If prop erly protected, while those wintered fn the cellar can get along with nbout half as much. To ten pounds of granulated sugar add one gallon boiling water, and you have n Ideal feed; or else with hot water thin some ripe extract ed honey. When the food Is taken up. remove the feeder and fix the colony for the winter. In uniting weak colo nies, always save the best queens. This should be done nfter the fall flow of honey. Make the union 'ate In the evening; smoke the colonies to be unit ed. Select the best combs and alter nate them In the hive. Fromm Milk, In Sweden and Denmark has been created anew industry that deserves notice. It consists In collecting at a central station the milk from farms within a given radius, pasteurizing It at about 75 degrees centigrade, and then freezing It at a temperature of minus 10 degrees. The blocks of frozen milk an* placed In stout wooden ensks hold ing nbout double the, volume of the blocks and the extra space Is filled w Ith sterlllz- fl milk, after which the casks are sealed hermetically. As they are perfectly full and are kept cool by the block of frozen milk, which melts very slowly, and as shocks of transportation are powerless to churn the milk Into butter. It may thus be preserved at least twenty days, so that the Danes and Swedes are now sending successfully to their neighbors and even further whole cargoes of milk. Ridding Hof* of Worms. Hogs affected with worms In the Intestines run down In condition, be come very thin and lank, back la arch ed. eyes dull, refuse feed, walk stiffly and appear lifeless. The worms may be very numerous. In bad cases com pletely filling the Intestines. The pigs <lie If not treated. To secure the best results, affected hogs should receive In dividual treatment. Twenty-four hours before administering treatment, very tittle feed should be given them. Then give the following medicine as a drench to each 100- pound hog; larger or smaller hogs should receive a doee In proportion: Oil of turpentine. 4 drachms; liquor ferri dlalysatns. half drachm; raw linseed oil, 6 ounces. If necessary repeat the dose In four days, advises a bulletin of the Kansas Agri cultural College. Alcohol V. (lMoll*. "Tbs Comparative Value of Alcohol and Gasoline for Light ard Power,’’ Is the name of Bulletin No. 93, which Is Just being Issued by the agricultural engineering section of the lowa Ex periment Station at Ames. In the spring of 1906 the national Congress pasied an act which became a law January 1, 1907, permitting the withdrawal from bond, tax free, do mestic alcohol when It was denatured or rendered unfit for human consump tion by the addition of certain mate rials repugnant to the taste and smell. The passage of this law has aroused much speculation into the possibilities of this new fuel. The experiment sta tion compared gasoline and alcohol with four objects in view viz.: (1) the beat value of the fuels; (2) their econ omy In the production of light; (3) their economy In the production of pow er nnd (4) the relative safety of gaso line and alcohoJ for general use. The conclusion reached In these experi ments will prove very Interesting to ev ery reader. Crops. Every successful farmer finds that he must assert his mastery In no un certain way over the weeds, these reb els of the vegetable world, or they will work havoc in his little domain and eventually his undoing. The battle with them must be fought unceasingly, for they are constantly on the watch to take advantage of every opportunity, remarks a writer in American Culti vator. “We’ll fight It out right here If It takes all summer!” may well be the threat Of the farmer to the weed crop. The great difficulty Is that a great many give up the fight with the weeds altogether too soon. The first attacks nn fierce and spirited enough, but they soon grow Indifferent nnd abandoned them altogether. Now, the fact Is that weeds are of a great many different va rieties, which seem to be designed to germinate at different seasons, one spe <rles following on the heels of another, occupying the ground as soon as their predecessors have ripened their seeds. The result is that weeding, vigorous at first, but soon abandoned, leaves the way open and unobstructed for the later varieties to flourish unhampered, nnd so they are never conquered or re duced. but their reign Is more firmly established from year to year. Then, again, many who wield the hoe vigorously are altogether too careless In their dealing with the weeds outside of the cultivated fields, allowing them to flourish unrestrained nbout the ma nure heap all summer nnd scatter their seed broadcast upon It, to be advan tageously planted when It is drawn out nnd strewn upon the fields In the spring. The Strawberry Bed. It will be time well spent to stop other work long enough to clean ont the strawberry bed. Weeds keep up a strong fight for existence, and It is re markable with what persistence they struggle for a foothold late In the fall, and unless destroyed they will be there In early spring to pre-empt and occupy the soil. The vines should be so spread that they form a perfect matted row with a path from 12 to 18 inches wide on each side. If the rows have become too close, part of the plants should be out out. This is best done now. It is better to cultivate the soil so frequent ly that the space between the rows will never be covered with runners. The soil should be loose and mellow between the rows. Upon the same principle that a road freezes harder than a plowed field, a berrv patch that is packed hard will freeze much harder than one which Is kept meilow. A mulch of some kind is of great importance for protection. It should be put on after the ground Is frozen, and left until after the danger of hard freezing in the spring. This will keep the plants from “heaving,” which is the result of alternate freez ing and thawing, and the blossoms are held back long enough in the spring to escape the usual frosts. Marsh grass is the best kind of mulching, as it lies closer than grnln straw, but rye, wheat, oats or barley straw are suitable. Shavings or sawdust has also been used, and so have cornstalks and forest leaves. There is an objection by some p--were to the use of buckwheat straw, as it Is believed that in some way it poisons the plants, but this no doubt 1* only imaginary. In localities where Southern pine is abundant, the needle* are spread on strawberries, nnd are highly recommended for the purpose. If a fertilizer Is desired, horse manure hnvlng a good supply of litter, is ex cellent. (nmrra Hrlpa Save the Eye. Dr. Wnlther Thorner, assistant at the clinic of eye diseases at the Royal Charity Hospital at Berlin, has recent ly made a discovery of great Import ance In the domain of ocular science, In solving a problem that several prac titioners had hitherto studied, but with Indifferent results. He has succeeded In photographing the back of the eye and In obtaining good photographic repro duction*. So writes J. B. Van Brussel In the Technical World Magazine. Ilia Invention Is a large Improve ment upon the Helmholtz eye specu lum, -which permits only of examining the back of the eye. while now an Image of it can be fired. Owing to this Invention the delicate art of the oculist Is destined to enter anew phase which will doubtless be the starting point of Interesting discover ies In the domain of ocular science.

WILL BUILD NEW ZION. Voliva and His Followers Are Going to New Mexico. The attractive country around Las Vegas, N. M.. is to be the scene of the future operations of Wilbur Glenn Vo liva and his followers. A cm tract has been clof< -j for 7,000 acres end VoliTa and his followers intend to go west as quickly as they can sell their present holdings. Within a few months a be ginning wi.i be made on the model city that Volin hopes to start. The city is bo have factories, stores, a newspaper and is to te self-governing, if present plans are carried out. Primarily the colony will devote itself to agriculture, but it Is the intention to build up the community sufficiently so that there will be employment of a diversified na-, ture. The site is not far from the hot springs of New Mexico. This land grant is unique because of the fact that it is owned by the city of WILBUR GLENN VOLIVA. Las Vegas, which therefore become rhe wealthiest community, i>er capita, in the United States. This city of 10,000 inhabitants owns 500,000 acres, worth certainly $1,300,- 000, and possibly as much as $3,000,000. The laud is being placed on tne market In tracts of 50.000 acres, and one block must be sold before the next is opened. The money is to be used as a perma nent school fund. The proceeds from the sale of the land will be invested and the interest will be used for main tenance of the public schools. The schools will therefore become indejien dent of taxes and taxing authorities. Tills is believed to be the only instance of the kind in this country. The market for all kinds of crops is large and is continually increasing. The soil is finely adapted to the culture of sugar beets to which some of the farmers intend to devote considerable acreage. A beet sugar factory is prom ised if the plan is carried out. A deed of bargain and sale from the Norfolk and Southern Railroad Company to the Norfolk and Southern Railway Company, conveying all of the rolling stock and other property to the latter concern for a consideration of $lO, has been filed at Norfolk, Va. That railroad building in the United States has reached its maximum under existing conditions, and that business is growing five times as fast as the mileage, is the latest pessimistic view announced by President llill of the Great Northern. He says further that there is no money to invest in railways in view of the atti tude of the State Legislatures and of the national government in passing regulative and restrictive measures. “If the present pernicious legislation against railroads is persisted in, and more particularly rhe enforcement of the 2- cents-a-mile passenger rate, I, as a rail road president, say that it would be bet ter to abandon all passenger trains and close all the passenger stations in the United States than continue the running of them at the expense of the stockhold ers. The passenger business is now car ried on at a loss, and to this, 2-cents-a mile legislation I attribute in no small degree the present financial depression in the United States.” This is the language said to have been used by George J. Gould, president of the Missouri Pacific railroad and the owner of a controlling interest in a vast number of railroads throughout the country. Mr. Gould has just returned from a seven months' ab sence in Europe, where, he said, the peo ple were timid about investing in Ameri can stocks in view of the recent hostile legislation against corporations. He said that among the reasons to which he at tributed the late financial pauic was the terrible verdict against the Standard Oil Company for rebating. lie thought there was no comparison between the railroails of this country aud those of Europe, al though there were some pretty fair one* in Germany. The report of the Erie railroad for the last fiscal year, which is now made pub lic, is remarkable in several respects, but chiefly in the statement that not a single passenger out of 24.199,723 carried was killed during the year. At the same time there was a reduction in the cost of op eration and more passengers were carried, at a less rate per mile. Wages were in creased a million dollars, in the aggregate. In spite of the big increase in wages, the road made a gain in net earnings of near ly $2,000,000. the total being $16,171.- 356. The Georgia State Railroad Commis sion has issued an order calling upon the Central of Georgia railroad and the Southern Railway Company for “full disclosures touching the sale of the stock of the farmer so far as the facts may be known to them or their companies or ap pearing in the books or documents in their possession." It has been charged that the Southern Railway Company owned a controlling interest in the Central of Georgia, contrary to a State law prohib iting one line from owning stock in a competing company, and it is the purpose of the commission to establish the fact if such is the case. All the franchises gramed by the Cleveland (Ohio!

Interesting crop reports have been re ceived at the general offices or the Wis consin Central road, indicating that while the Wisconsin potato crop is not as heavy as usual, the quality is excellent in the potato sections along the line of the Central. The annual shipments of the tubers has begun, and the Central is sending all the cars it can spare to the potato counties to be loaded for Chicago, St. Louis. New Orleans and other points. Wisconsin annually furnishes thousands of care of potatoes for the other States. The corn crop is said to be well ma tured along the Central’s lines.

The logging season is now in full swing in the forests of northern Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan, and hundreds of lumberjacks have made their way northward. The activities of the various lumber companies, however, arc confined this year, aud the depletion of the forests during the past years marks the decline of the lumbering industry, which has always been one of the promi nent industries of Wisconsin. The State's large factories have eaten away at the forests until now there is comparatively little left.

Mr. Roosevelt Wednesday came out squarely and decisively against having the sacred motto on money. lie de clares, In brief, that the inscription is a sacrilege when placed on filthy lucre, that It does positive harm and that it has been the cause of a great amount of irreverence. If Congress compels him to do so, the President says he will restore the words immediately, but not* until then will he do so. He assumes full respon sibility for the omission on the new gold coins and shows the warmth of his convictions in the matter in a response to various ministers’ associations which have addressed the executive on the subject. Letter Set* Forth Hl* View*, In answer to one of the many pro tests received at the White House, Pres ident Roosevelt has written the follow ing letter: When the question of the new coinage came up we looked into ‘he law and found there was no warrant thereiun for putting ‘“ln God We Trust” on the coihs.

But as I did not approve of it, I did not direct that it shpuid again be put on. Of course the matter of the law is absolutely in the hands of Congress and any direction of Congress in the mat ter will be immediately obeyed. At pres ent, as I have said, there is no warrant iu law for the inscription. My own feeling in the matter is due to my very firm conviction that to put such a motto on coins, or to use it iu any kin dred manner, not only doe* no rood, but does positive harm, and is in effect irrev erence which comes dangerously close to sacrilege. A beautiful and solemn sen tence such as the one in question should be treated and uttered only with that fine reverence which necessarily implies a certain exaltation of spirit. Any use which tends to cheapen it and, above all, any use which tends to secure its being treated in a spirit of levity, is from every standpoint profoundly to be regret ted. It is a motto which it is indeed well to have inscribed on our great national monuments, in our temples of justice, in our legislative hails and in Buildings such as those at West Point nnd Annapolis— in short, wherever it will tend to arouse and inspire a lofty emotion in those who look thereon. But it seems to me emi nently unwise to cheapen such a motto by use on coins, just as it would toe to cheapen it by use on postage stamps or jn advertisements. * As regards its use on the coinage we have actual experience by which to go. In all my life I have never heard any human being speak reverently of this motto on the coins or show any signs of its having appealed to any high emotion in him, but I have literally hundreds of times heard it used as an occasion of and incitement to the sneering ridicule which rt is above all things undesirable that so beautiful and exalted a phrase should excite. If Congress alters the law and directs me to replace on the coins the sentence in question, the direction will be imme diately put into effect; but I very earn estly trust that the religious sentiment of the country, the spirit of reverence in the country, will prevent any such action being taken.
