two oval clasps of halmmered gold perhaps
an inch in length could be bought for $48,

A pair that cost .$225 had two shi~ld

at it iy an extraordinary use of the scissors
we have culled from our agricultural ex
tie I changes the following valuable directions
the concerning planting:
ifeo This is the planting season, and by a
o wise provisionl of lntiure the plantain will
'p- grow without any efforts on your part.
Vtas You need not trouble yourself, either,
tli- aout the planting of (logs' feet. The dogs
ter w ill take care of that matter. The richer t he
, it soil and the more valuable the seeds in iit
re- the more kindly the dogs will take to it.
tI Lawnl is the best dressing for grass seed.
li If you would fatten your neighbor's
i it hIen crop spare not the seed.
et- Now set out tomato plants. By the time
an tl:ey come into bearing, the fruit will be
the cheap at the market. Therefore if yours
nd (1 do not ripen perfectly, you will be aº well
o- 'oif as any of your neighbors.
ne It is time your potatoes were started.
Ve- The Colorado beetle is anxiously awaiting
s'the appearaniee of the vines, an(l unless
lad yxll push things the poor creature will be
Al short of provisions.
h Pinch back your geraninm shoots, if the
ºi frost has not already pinched them.
- Beanpoles are hardy, and no danger of
late frosts need be apprehended. Plant in
i rotws and thin out later.
Of course your peas are up a foot or two
ere this. If they are not it is your duty to
say they are. Every enterprising farmer -
is expected to lie about the forwardness of
his peas. o
AI to beans you know them. Soak be- SI
fore planting, mulch With salt pork, andi
keep in a warm place.
Ca-bbages do best in hot water. Pick out
good-sized plants, well headed, and dress
'twith salt and pepper.
c :om imereial fertilizers are the most prof
l itable. Should you lose your rway hosme
it ou can easily find it if your farm be A)len

If you woult have your wheelbarrows T

Oleomargarine does best on fat lands. It

A good corn crop may be secured by
wearing close-fitting boots. A double crop
may be obtained by judicious paring.
No farmer need be without a crop of
squash bugs. Five cen.s' worth of seeds
will raise 4G,6S3 to each squash.
Turnips should be set out early. They
do best on trellises, but are sometimes ob
tained on poles.
Apples should not be dug before August.
Care should be taken that they are not cut
by the hoe, unless you wish to dry them;
in which case it is a great s'aving of time to
slice while hoemng.
By all means keep fowls. Farmers who
own hens invariably findtl that their seeds
come up quicker than those who donot.
Farnmers do not find the milk weed prof
itable. A good pump is much better and
