Of Interest to
Feints That Mutt B Borne In Mind
Whtn Chang la Sought.
In "Replannlng a Farm For Profit,"
toe title of farmers' bulletin No. 370,
Issued by the United States depart
ment of agriculture, the matter of
dunging the type of agriculture on a
farm when the old is found to be no
longer profitable la treated. ' The bulle
tin says: "
Habit frequently continues a type of
farming in a community long after
that type has become unprofitable.
Wheat farming on fertile virgin soil is
usually profitable, but there are many
Instances in the United States where
farmers have continued to grow wheat
for a number of years after It had
ceased to be a profitable crop. : The
same Is true of cotton. A two year ro
tation of corn and oats has been con
tinued in portions of the corn belt not
withstanding the fact that it is often
unprofitable, little or no money being
made on either crop. Frequently these
unprofitable types of farming continue
through series of years or until the
property changes hands or new meth
ods are Introduced. The farmer finds
It bard to change a lifelong habit.
A man who baa grown up with the
agriculture of a community is slow to
believe that the type of farming he
has followed and which was at one
time profitable has "at last become un
suited to his conditions. It ls .no small
task to think out and change his long
used typo to some 'better kind of farm
ing. There are several reasons why
such a change is difficult. It may
mean a new line of equipment. Build
ings may need modification or 'fences
must be rearranged. It may mean the
Introduction of commercial fertilizers
or of more or' different live stock on
the farm. It may mean that money
will have to be borrowed If the pro
posed changes are effected. Further
more, the change may not succeed. At
best the taking up of a new line of
farming requires a readjustment of the
usual ways of thinking and doing, a
thing difficult In Itself and requiring
considerable time te accomplish.
Notwithstanding habit may set the
farmer in hia ways, altered conditions
and lessened yield and Income may
compel him to change bis system or
go out of business. To what shall he
change? , How shall he go about It?
Wbat type of farming la likely to
prove more profitable than the kind he
is t now following? ' What additional
capital is necessary to institute a new
and better system? These are the
questions that confront him. They are
difficult to answer. With, pencil and
paper in hand he may estimate the re
turns that may reasonably be expected
by introducing more crops that build
up the land, by growing more of the
crop that is bringing blmiin the great
est amount of money, by giving more
attention to the live stock that has
been found to pay best and the like.
If in these calculations he meets
with difficulty because of a lack of
definite information as to wiat may be
reasonably expected when improved
. methods are applied in the culture of
a crop or in the handling of stock he
may write to the agricultural college
or the board of agriculture or the agri
cultural experiment station of his own
state or . to the United States depart
ment of agriculture , for help. It la
the business of these institutions to
discover and gather facts relative to
the science, practice and business of
Agriculture for the benefit of the farm
er and particularly for the farmer who
.wants to Improve bis methods of farm
ing. The agricultural press also un
dertakes, to aid the farmer in the so
lution of problems of this character.
. In addition to these sources, a few
private firms have been established
whose business It is to furnish expert
advice on farm management for a con
sideration. ,
Not always, however, are the institu
tions Just mentioned prepared to give
the farmer information on a plan cov
ering his whole farm. The expert
dairyman cares to give advice only on
dairying, the entomologist only on In
sects and spraying, the agronomist
only on field crops, the pathologist
only on plant diseases, the shepherd
only on sheep. Not many care to at
tempt to co-ordinate all the manifold
Interests of the farm Into a single
comprehensive farm plan, and yet this
is exactly what the farmer must do
every day of his life If he would get
the most out of hia farm, and make
farming pay.
The farmer Is not simply a corn
farmer or a wheat grower or a cattle
breeder or a sheep breeder or a poul-
try raiser, but often all of these and
more combined. His farm, therefore,
must be planned with reference to all
of these operations and the harmoni
ous dovetailing together of the differ
ent parts. In replanniug bis farm for
profit the farmer must see all these
different problems In a comprehensive
way at the outset, omit the features
that do not pay and strengthen those
that da
Fortunately many of our agricultural
. rolleges today are co-ordinating the
. work of their different departments
and giving courses In farm manage
ment, and usually ' suggestions can be
obtained from these sources relative
to the general management of the
farm not necessarily detailed direc
tions for farming, for it would be as
dlScult to tell a man how to farm aa
it is to tell him how to succeed In law,
' but rather to furnish him a compre
v henstve plan for managing his farm.
corresponding in a way to the plau
, furnished by the architect to a builder.
It Is often said that a farm cannot
be planned aa other kinds of business
axe; that the vicissitudes of weather,
the visitations of Insect pests or plant
diseases, the low prices that may pre
vail when the farmer has to sell and
. other unforeseen circumstances may
. Interfere to make all farm plans al
vmost worthless from a practical stand
point vT-r
This Is often quite true with ref er
irace to plans, made for a particular
yor. Dt when the plans are based
' em averare conditions, for a tear se
the Fanners
ries of "yeafs then the objections' Co
not hold, for, while we cannot tell
what may happen during any particu
lar season, we can foretell with con
siderable accuracy what the average
conditions will be over a series, say,
of ten years. The whole business of
Insurance Is based on the reliability of
averages. It cannot be foretold just
who out of a thousand persons will
die next year, but It can be stated
with, much certainty about how many
persons oat of the thousand will die.
Plans for the farm likewise must rep
resent and be based on average condi
tions and not on single years. Tht
farm plan must be made for a period
of years and not for a single year.
In replannlng a farm it is essential
that a few fundamental points In
farming be kept constantly in mind:
First. -The plan should provide a
reasonable reward for the labor and
capital invested.
Second. The fertility of the farm
should be maintained or Increased.
Third. The plan must be suited to
the capabilities of the owner for car
rying it out
It is assumed that In order to replan
a farm for profit It is necessary to
consider the capabilities of the farmer
to put the new plan into effect This
in general will render it necessary to
recomblne the phases of farming with
which he is already familiar or to
bring in new features which are not
very dissimilar to the ones he is al
ready accustomed to.
Judging Corn 8eeds.
One of the first points a Judge of
corn ahould give attention to is the
seed condition of samples. Is the
germ sound, and will it produce a
good plant? A germination test is the
best means of settling these questions,
but unfortunately cannot be employed
while one is judging corn shows. The
farmer should test every ear be plants.
If the germ is slender and small the
plant is likely to lack vitality. Thin
seeds tapering to their attachment pro
duce weak germs, ' and consequently
ears with such seeds must be discrlm
Inated against in scoring exhibits. The
seed should be deep, but It must also
be of medium width and thickness, for
upon this depend the size of the germ
and the amount of food stored In the
seed for the early maintenance of the
plant But sometimes seeds of good
width and thickness have small germs
and should therefore be rejected in fa
vor of seeds of the same form, but
with larger germs.
Badly matured seeds sometimes pre
sent small, blister-like eminences over
the germ, due to a separation of the
cuticle from its attachment Again, If
the whole area over the germ Is deeply
sunken It Indicates lack of maturity
and consequent excessive shrinkage.
Failure of the grain to separate readi
ly from .the cob is another indication
of lack of ripeness. A brown or pink
discoloration about the germ or the at
tached endvof the seed is very objec
tionable, as Is also the presence of
mold or rotten seeds.
Salt For the Animals.
Salt la necessary to the health and
thrift of domestic animals, and they
should have it In winter as well as in
summer. They need more of it proba
bly during the period of abundant suc
culent feed, but the animal system re
quires more or less of it all the time.
A good plan is to keep salt in shel
tered boxes where the stock can get at
It at will. This is a safeguard against
neglect and, being accustomed to It at
pleasure, there is no danger that too
much will be taken.
The Asparagus Beetle.
The asparagus beetle is a trouble
some pest and hard to fight Clean
cutting, especially In ridge culture,
keeps them - well under control in
spring, but considerable harm Is done
later, on by slug or larvae. Poultry
are very fond oS these beetles, and a
few fowls will soon capture the ma
tured Insects If i mowed In a garden
bed. " '
The Buster Considered One of the Beat
Varieties of This Valuable Fruit
According to W. T. Macoun, horti
culturist of the central experiment
farm of the Canadian department of
agriculture, the rapid extension; of
strawberry growiug uas resulted in
the production of very large crops of
this valuable fruit especially in the
eastern provinces of the Dominion.
where strawberries have come into
very general use. The -ease with
which new varieties of this fruit are
produced from seed has resulted In
the Introduction during the past few
years ef a large number of new sorts.
: The Buster, originated by C. C
Stone of Moline. lit. Is called one of
the best varieties. - It Is roundish,

Clubs to Interest Them In Work a Re
cent Development.
Within recent years a new method
of agricultural education has been de
vised in the form ef boys and girls'
clubs. Such clubs have various ob
jects,, bat usually tbey provide for
prize contests . among the members.
rCorn growing contests are probably
tne most common among me Boys,
although many other crops have been
tried, while the girls compete in bread-
making or sewing or even test their
skill against that of the boys in gar
dening. ,
The United States department of
agriculture : has information of 395
counties in twenty-eight states in
which such clubs are organized, with
a total membership of about 144,000.
New York has about 75.000 members,
Nebraska 25,000 and other states
smaller numbers. One county in
Pennsylvania has 2)000 members. In
most cases these clubs are organized
under the auspices of some state au
thority, but in many cases the county
superintendent takes the ; Initiative,
while in many other cases the rural
teachers arrange contests among their
own pupils.
The United States department of
agriculture , also gives assistance
through the office of experiment sta
tions by furnishing advice and sug
gestions. A new farmers' bulletin on
boys and girls' agricultural clubs
tells how to organize the clubs, how-
to conduct the contests and what pub
lications will be useful to the boys
and girls.
How to Spray Trees.
Assuming that the fruit grower Is
properly equipped with apparatus and
material and ready to apply the spray
to the trees, the next question is how
to do it If the day is calm spraying
can be done in any direction most con
venient If the wind is light spray
so that the wind blows nearly as pos
sible across or at right angles to the
rows to be treated. By so doing and
working from windward the trees are
easily and wholly covered when spray
ed on opposite sides.
It should be, noted that it Is Impos
sible to spray a tree of any size effec
tively and completely from one side
only. In a brisk wind the same rule
applies except that only one side of
the trees is sprayed, and then watch
opportunity and with a changed wind
spray the opposite side. By this meth
od the spray will not fall on men or
animals, but will be blown through the
trees. By - the exercise of a .;. little
thought and foresight the wind can be
made a serviceable ally in spraying.
It is quite essential that every part of
the tree, trunk, branches, twigs and
leaves (if tree is in foliage), should be
covered with the solution or mixture.
Roughshod Methods of Sightseers In
'Albert Bigelow Paiue says in de
scribing a visit to a Constantinople
'Some kind of ceremony was in
progress when we arrived; dui. as
usual in such places, we did not mind.
We went right in just the same, and
our guides, too, and we talked and
pointed and did what we could to
break up the services. Old turbaaed
sons of the prophet were kneeling and
bowing and praying here and there
and were a good deal in the way.
Sometimes we fell, over them, but we
were charitably disposed and did not
kick them at least I didn't and 1
don't think any of tho party did. We
might kick a dog kick at him, I mean
if we tripped over one. but we do
not kick a Moslem not a lire one. We
only take bis picture and step on him
and muss him up and make a few
notes and go.
'I have been wondering what would '
happen to a party of tourists Mos
lems, for Instance who broke into an
American church during services, with
guides to point and explain, and stared
at the people who' were saying their
prayers and stalked over them as if
they were wax figures. An American
congregation would be annoyed by a
mob like that and would remove it
and put it in the calaboose. But then,
such things wouldn't happen in Amer
ica. We have cowed our foreign visit
ors. Besides, there is nothing in an
American church that a foreigner
would care to see.' Outing.
Going Astray at Sea.
The difficulty of keeping a modern
steamship on a .straight course' is no
slight one. The 'helmsman steers by
the compass, and. while a single de
gree of deviation appears very small
on the compass card, it would if con
tinued carry a fast steamship four
miles out of her course in a single
day's run. Tet the compass gives the
course more accurately than the ship
can be steered. Owing to the deflect
ing power of the waves and the roll
ing of the ship, which if she is of the
twin screw type causes first one of her
propellers and then the other to exert
greater effect the course is continual
ly shifted a little this ; way and that
despite the helm. The only safety Is
in correcting the ; compass course by
frequent observations of the sun, moon
and stars. New York Tribune.

Prynr.a the Pamphleteer. '
Even if we do return to the days of
the pamphlet we are hardly likely to
find emulators of the prolific pamphlet
eers of an earlier day. There was. for
Instance, ' William Prynne, whose ef
forts cost him both his ears and a
branding ou the cheek as a seditious
libeler. In all he wrote some 200 books
and pamphlets "A Gagge For Long
Haired Rattleheads" is au example of
their titles and, according to Wood's
estimate, produced a sheet for every
day of his life. His manner of study,
too, would hardly be followed today,

a pot of ale every three hours "to refoc
illate his wasted spirits, making only
one big meal at the close of the day.

Is plain talk and I mean .it. The methods we use In every case we
treat insure men a lifelong cure if they are afflicted with the fol

Varicocele and Hydrocele. Our one-treatment cure Is what you
should have and what you will have to have to be cured right. Only
one visit Is required. We do no cutting and yon suffer no pain nor
trouble. All signs disappear in a few days.
Blood Poison, Skin Diseases. We will give you treatment that
will in a few days cure all rash sores, ulcers and every sign and
' symptom. Our treatment gets the poison out of the system instead
of driving it In, like other treatments. We cure blood poison and
skin diseases so they do not come back. .
Stricture, Kidney, Bladder, Prostatic, Discharges are scientifical
ly cured by us. Our methods immediately benefit you and the ma

Piles, Fistula. We can cure yon so quickly and easily that yon
will be surprised. ? We will give yon Just the result and cure you are
looking for without a surgical operation.
. Rupture Cured in a few Treatments Without Cutting. After an ex
amination we will tell yon just what we can do for you. If we can
