HORTICULTURE THE SURPLUS FRUIT. Good Way to Utilize It Is to Evapor ate It. An easy method within the reach of nil fruit grow'ors Ih to evaporate or dry the No. 2 fruit ub well ns the culls. There are various styles and sizes of evaporators, ranging from those wh'ch will handle a bushel a day and set on top of the kitchen range, to the com mercial plants which will handle iOO bushels or more in 21 hours. Practi cally ull fruits cun bo evaporated to A 100-Bushel Fruit Evaporator. ndiautnge and with profit, but the greatest demand is for apples. A small evaporator can be used to advantage and profit on every fat m, even If it Is only to dry tho supply of fruits and vegetables for fan%'ly use. Evaporators with a cnpnclty of six to ten bushels per day will take care of the No. 2 surplus fruit on most farms. The expense of operating is not large and there is usually a good return. Apples will usually dry out from six to eight pounds to the bush el, depending on the variety, state of maturity, quality of the fruit and the care used in paring. The evaporator shown In the cut is owned by George T. Powell, a well known New York fruit grower. sa> s the Farm and Home. It has a capac ity of 100 bushels per day and co**t complete somewhat less than SI,OOO. He averages 650 pounds evaporated apples from 100 bushels of gree.n stock, and 200 pounds of skins at. i cores. There are two kilns, the ap ples being spread out upon the floor and occasionally turned. It require* two boys to run the paring machines six women to trip, one man who looks after the Arcs, the sulphuring and the slicing, and another man works from nopn to midnight tending the Area. It .akes three tons of coal per week to run the evaporator. STUMPS IN SOFT GROUND. Haw They May Be Removed at Small Expense. Moving two years ago to a farm that had been hewed out of the woods, 1 1 had my first experience with | stumps. 1 found the common custom j beio was to let the stumps remain in the load til! they rotted or re I plowed out. sax s a Southern Illinois correspondent of the Orange Judd Farmer. The small ones were usually i tewed out in from five to ten or 12 year*. The big fellows were still in mary fields, where they had stood anywhere from 25 to 40 years. Plow ing among stumps one year was all the experience wanted in that line. The first fall and last spring I had two men follow the plow, with a good spade and a sharp ax. When a small stump, snac or post oak runner was struck by the plow they would dig down by the obstruction just low enough to cut it off below the plow line. In this way I got rid of the small stumps in eight or ten acre* at a cost of $1 25 per acre How to get out the big fellows that were dead but firm in the ground without an immense amount of dig ging. a stump puller or dynamite wras a i easier. Las: spring after the frost was out of the ground and before the soil had settled. 1 discovered that sev eral of these big stumps were quite loose. As soon as the ground was settled, they were as firm as during the first summer 1 was acquainted ! with them. I decided that this spring I would see what could be done when things wera just right. Late in January we had a thawing rain that took every particle of frost out of the ground and left it so soft and wet that it would mire a team to pull a load, even l on our sod land. 1 considered this oar opportunity to tackle those stump*, even though 1 c. -id no: -sa the team 1 to pull them out. Two of us with a tile spade, a good steel bar, a 2x4 dry oak pry nine feet long and a block >x> inches and 15 long, went at it- It was so wet it was a rather nasty Job. bn: it was a very successful one. We did not tackle a single dead stump, either sound or rotten, that we d:d not get out. roots and all. Some of the prongs were as hard as bone- After we had turned them out. a comparatively few ‘j;»s with a sharp ax would cut through the locks on the under side of the stumps, then they were readily split into quar ters. eighths, or smaller pieces and could be loaded on a wagon, when we could drive upon the .and We got them out at the rate of about four an j hour. Shading Summer Head Lettuce. When the plants begin to mate good growth. mulch the ground among them w-.th strawy manure. Then pjara a frame ever the bed to protect the plants from the ho: sun. Make the frame of lath nailed to solid strips at each end. leaving an inch space between laths. Ittve stake* at the comers of the bed and rest the frame on them, having it 15 to IS inches above ground This shades them considerably and with the help of the mulch a good crop of crisp *oi heads can be produced. Dry Up Before Calving. However predisposed a cow may be , to give milk, she should be dried up ■ six weeks before she is to be fresh aca.n She gets a rest in this way T gg. her long m . cine period, and is sa aared for another. THE CUCUMBER LOUSE. Pest That Nips the Blossoms and How to Fight It. Almost every one who has had any experience in growing cucumbers Is familiar with this little insect; for wherever cucumbers are grown his presence is made conspicuous by tho blossoms falling from the vines. Whenever we see the blossoms fading, wo can rest assured that this pernici ous bug is getting in his work. I have found from long years of ex perience that the Insects are more numerous during dry weather than at any other time. The cucumber lows© is aided in his work of destruction by a small species of ant that seems to harbor in clusters In the small crev ices of the bloom. Almost every form of solution and composition has been tried for the purpose of exterminating tills destructive Insect, which has wrought so much harm to all vine plants. Lime has been used by a number of tho commercial growers, but without any apparent success. Spraying lias been practiced to a great extent, but many report an utter fail ure. There is nothing which I have tried which has proved so successful in de stroying insects as wood ashes, says the correspondent of Country Gentle man. One application of wood ashes slightly moistened with kerosene has done more for mo In the way of ex terminating bugs and Insects than all other compounds combined. I save all the ashes through the winter, storing them in some dry place. This is very essential, for should they once become water soaked, they will lose much of their value as an exterminator. When l am ready to apply the ashes to the plants, I dampen them slightly with kerosene, just sufficient to moisten. I then shake a small handful around tho stem of each plant and a sprinkle on tho leaves. One must exercise caro not to use a large quantity of kero sene, for when applied It would be In jurious to the blossoms and leaves. A TRANSPLANTER. Contrivance Which Will Facilitate Work in Transplanting Plants. The accompanying picture shows a transplanter I made years ago. and have used it constantly since, says a correspondent of the Rural New York er. The part marked a Is heavy sheet brass welded, b Is heavy brass wife, c brass wire, and d brass wire pound ed somewhat flat, about one-half inch wide. Place a over any plant, an! with foot at x force into the ground about four inches: pull It up and fores the plant out by pressing on ths handle y; d Is made to slip Inside cf main cylinder a. Take your barrow The Transp'anter.

Mv ! bed migrates east or west, two rows each year, and you will see by the above plan I always have plants one. two and three years old. HARVESTING ONIONS. Car* Must Be Taken to Do It Just at the Right Time. As onions approach maturity, the time of harvesting them should be carefully watched. When they are mature the stems will show it by dry ing up ana lopping over, and the onions should be harvested at this time to avoid a second growth start ing in. It has been found by those who grow ihetn under irrigation that the crop could be very easily spoiled This w£.s done by there being a check :n the growth of the onions just 1h» fore maturity, and the irrigator think ing he wcnld continue the develop men: hy an extra watering. The ex tra watering resulted in starting what :s known as a second growth, a now shoo: being een: up from tho onions and many of the onions dividing Info w - parts. Th:s injure* them for sell :ng in the markets, and also Injures the.r keeping qualities, says the Farm ers Review If the onions stop grow for any cause, either because Hey nave not been supplied w tih adequate water or because the natural rain Ull ;? not abundant ;t :s better to harxont them at once, even though they are somewv a: immature The best keep mg varieties are frequently the small ones, and among the varieties tj, 0 sma.. onions keep better than the large ones. This is due to the fact that the loss in weight causes free evaproation and sprouting Therefore they should be harvested as as toss.Me after they have obtained their £r?: and put In a cool place -hat is. a place not dry enough an 1 ' wa-m enough to cause ev*p> r . lUm < moisture to start growth.

Symbolism Is being Introduced Into Jewelry with happy effect by an r.rtist who designs beautiful ornaments for women. Sometimes the setting sym bolizes an attribute of the wearer, and again it relates to the history or 1- gend of the jewel Itself. His master piece is a pendant just finished for the wife of a millionaire banker. She took to him a beautiful emerald and asked to have it set in a symbolic pendant. The artist had read that when the Spaniards conquered Peru, large collections of emeralds were found among the hoards of the Inca- These were taken back to Euros The fact of. the discovery was utiliz in the artist’s design. The gem was set hugged to the bosom of a lit?: Aztec god. In his hands, which met above the jewel.* he held a small dia mond. simulating a lamp, and he was peering wonderinglv into the luminous depths of the green* stone. Potato Puff. Take two cups cold mashed pota toes and stir into it one tablespoon melted butter, beating to a white cream before adding anything eh- Then put with this two eggs be?‘e:i extremely light, one cup cream, and salt to taste.
