A. xs£&£2& WHAT FARMERS NEED MOST A "Thinking Machine" Kept in Good Order A Higher Ideal of the Farm and all Departments of Farm work. bune: A man who had vainly tried several lines of business in the city without success, while lamenting bis many failures, said that he would "now try farming, for farmers all make a shift to get along in most any way." One need of the farmer is firmly to resolve at the opening of the year that he will make a determined effort to get out of the old ruts. One of the deepest ruts, and the hardest one to pull out of, or steer around after once out, is that of soil improvement owing to faulty tillage, lack of proper rota tion, or "farming by guess," as it is often called. Another need is a higher ideal of quality for his crops of selection of seed from such crops of breeds of animals produced, fruits harvested, etc. A farmer should be able to point with pride to his farm, to his home, to this stock upon the farm, to his bountiful harvests, and to his happy, intelligent children. No man who shifts along "most any way" can ever do this. That he will be mired upon the highway of life and at last stalled is inevitable. The Agricultural Department at Washington will add other material in the shape of Farmers' Bulletins (now numbering something like 150), free, upon receipt of a postal card making your wants known. The Experiment Station work reports are valuale in many lines. Other volumes may be had for five cents to ten cents each. Any farmer can have his name placed upon the mailing lists of his State Agricultural College for the printed matter issued yearly. The thinking machine, with the aid of a two-cent lead pencil and a five-cent notebook, will arrange and utilize all this infor mation for needs of soils, crops and farm animals. Let any man attend, tt you please, a hl&tfine of the State Grange let him place in the question box a slip of paper asking any farmer present to state Lieblg's four laws of agricul tural practice. How many will be able to answer offhand? Let him ask what is a fertile soil, or how a plant gets its food from the air, and how from the soil, and what these foods are let him ask what is a proper rotation to con serve fertility of soil, or how to con serve moisture let him ask whether barnyard manure is a low grade or a high grade fertilizer, and how does it compare with those purchased for richness in plant food, or availability how to proceed for best treatment of soli for cereals, or grass, or root crops. What would be the results? Let now pertient questions like these be offered to the business men at any Board of Trade meeting, and it would be strange, indeed, if any manufac turer of textiles, iron, steel, boots and shoes, or, Indeed, any large business could not readily answer such and hundreds more closely pertaining to this special business. Yet these ques tions pertain to things that are the foundation stones of all profitable agri culture. We go on by guesswork re moving what is grown, and making no return and, when the soil Is e» hausted we "abandon the farm" and migrate to fresh fields. Some knowledge of agricultural chemistry would enable us to avoid such misfortunes. It »ipisis« what the crops remove and how to make Urm- Chas. A. Snow, in New York Tri- economy and yet supply all their needs An acquaintance, while making a visit, told of a farmer who housed in his storing shed something like forty varieties of agricltural implements and tools of various kinds and sizes— the thrasher, the baling machine, the reaper, wheeled sprayers, silage cut ter, tedder, horse hay fork—all were there, but he was discontented and seemed to lack courage to face the future, although blessed with the best of health and strength. Now, the time for muscle farming has passed, and mind farming is coming to take its place. With all the machines in the plant of this favored farmer, he had negected to add a thinking ma chine—the greatest need among the farmers today. The others are all useful to those who can afford their great cost, but for profitable use of them a thinking machine is indispens able. It does not occupy much space on the farm It can be lubricated in the beet manner for the small outlay of about two cents a day (much less expense than any other farm ma chine), and the wideawake publishers of our most excellent and helpful agri cultural papers will cheerfully take the contract for this sum. Mirn to the soil, neglect of Mch is a violation ot a primary law of nature, sure to bring Its penalty. It tells how to avoid tho wastes at the of humus, of ton. at tho heap—one of tho terms—how to feed farm animals with BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE: TUESDAY, JUNE 9, 1003 for labor, or for laying on flesh. How many long winter evenings, how many stormy days or listless hours give golden opportunities for Improvement intellectually, nd so profitable flnan cilly, are wasted by farmers? Touching farm profits: How many farmers can tell just what it costs them to produce one hundred pounds of pork or beef, or a ton of hay, or an acre of corn or oats? Ask any manu facturer what it costs him to produce articles of his own make, and he would be stupid, indeed, if he could not tell down to the merest detail. He makes money at his factory, although it lies idle a gret prt of the twentyifour hours and all the Sundays in the year. The farm factory runs on while the owner slumbers, and on all the Sun days the crops grow. Compare the success of the business man with that of farmers. Why does one amass wealth while the other gets along "most any way"? Because the busi ness man thoughtfully uses right methods. His thinking machine is kept in good order by trade papers and journals that cost him $3, $5 and $10 each a year. The farmer can hardly afford to oil up with a fifty-cent paper, while $1 is to most a fabulous outlay, for mere "book larnin'," and so he goes along "by guesses." Now, there must be a willing mind or the leisure hours and knowledge will be as useless as water poured into a sieve for thirty plants. Uncon scious Ignorance is always self-satis faction. There is, besides, the neg lect of one's duty to one's children, a cause of great reproach upon many farms. Let each child have a berry patch for his own care. Give it a lamb or weakly colt to bring up. In terest him in the crops, the flowers, the birds and vines. Allow him to help in keeping the place tidy, and in beautifying all unsightly places. These boys who are to become farm ers must place agriculture upon the same scientific basis as that upon which other Industries rest, and it will be equally as profitable. Let the children study books treat ing of natural history topics for dis cussion in the home, as What is the soil? What its constituent parts? How do plants grow? How can we grow larger crops of hay, cereals, roots, etc.? Let them have hotbeds and cold frames. Let them study how to rear and care for domestic animate, and so manage as to seen*'? larger profits from their labor, piof'-mtj or flesh. Natural history study Is now only a mere incident of school life give It a prominent place in th3 farm home. How pleasant to see ch'Hren on good terms with all God's crea tures! The heart softened letimes will never afterward be su'lied by cruelty. Germs of kindness, if early planted, will grow and ripen, and the ciind will become lmbu^il with the principle of respect for the life which God has created. Give me the child w! ose face brightens w*'li sympathy toward all living things—whose eyes sparkle with joy at the many ways of its dumb dependents, and fill with tears when they die. Aa fanners ought we not to mark with gratitude that all nature is moulded, grouped and combined In endless varieties of lovliness, so as most fully to gratify that longing for beauty with which man alone ha* been endowed? After all our wants have been —after we have been clothed, housed and warmed—thi« good gift has been added over and above, as an ever blooming flower laid upon our path through life, to be en joyed a£d acknowledged with »dorlng thankfulness. If we have so enlight ened ourselves that we have a taste for Intellectual pursuits, we «lall not be unhappy in the intervals of busi ness or pleasure, or resort to low companions or amusements that de grade. Cicero says of poetry and the arts—and we may apply the words to all Intellectual studies: "They give strength in youth and Joy in old age, adorn prosperity and are the consola tion of adversity at home they are delightful, and abroad they are easy at night they are company to us when in travel they attend us in oar rural retirement they do not forsake us." The fanner may, ^w1 perhaps will, ask where la the utility ot all this? Practical utility Is not to overlooked bat If mankind had never soared beyond practical ntlllty, no science would over have advanced be yond its rudiments, and the world would never have boon blessed with those results which wo prise so highly. a.5"J2!?

The brank, or scold bridle, or gos sip's bridle, was neither more nor less than a muscle. It was in general use In Great Britain from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, and in Scot land as well women were mussled for certain offenses, some at least of them more imaginary than real. The instru ment of torture, even a dog's leather muzzle, is uncomfortable how much more the scold's muscle? It consisted, according to a high authority, Mr. W. Jewitt, of a kind of crown or frame work of Iron, which was locked upon the head, and it was armed in front with a gag, a plate or a sharp flatting knife or point, which was placed fifths poor woman's mouth so as to poovest her moving her tongue, or it was eo placed that if she did move It or at tempt to speak It was cut in a most frightful manner. With this cage up on ber head and with the gag firmly pressed and locked against her tongue the miserable creature, whoso sole of fending perhaps was that she raised her voice In defense of her social rights against a brutal and besotted hustmnd or had spoken honest truth of some one high In office in her town, was pa railed through the streets, led by chain by the hand of a bellman, the beadle or the constable or chained to the pillory, the whipping post or mar ket cross, to be subjected to every eon ceivnble insult and degradation, with out even the power left her of asking for mercy or of promising amendment for the future, and when the punish ment was over she was turned out from the town hall or the place where the brutal punishment bad been In fllcted, maimed, disfigured, bleeding, faint and degraded, to be the subject of comment and jeering among her neighbors and to be reviled by ber per secutors.—Fireside Magazine.

Plover egps are esteemed a great del icacy in England and Germany. The flavor of eggs may be influenced by the food eaten by laying hens. Hens' eggs have a white or brown color, but ducks' eggs are bluish white. Hens' and ducks' eggs are commonly offered in our market, but turkey eggs are seldom eaten. In Virginia gulls' eggs are commonly eaten, and in Texas the eggs of terns and herons are gathered along the coast. Turtle eggs are highly prized in coun tries where they are abundant and, though once commonly eaten in Amer ica, are now seldom offered.
