ENGLISH FLOWERS “rAOW£X<3 THAT DRTATHCArtD Those who only visit the country at week-ends, or other intervals, cannot help being struck with the fact that there is nearly always a dominating flower; that is to say, one which in full bloom takes posescion of the land scape and attains a temporary mastery over all others. On a comparatively small but definite scale, this is wit nessed In the garden. "This is daf fodil time,” we exclaim one day in our Joy at seeing the ground become yellow with the bloomc of this flower. Hut in a little while “we weep to see you haste away so soon.” The life of a flower has long been used as a metaphor for all that is mo3t fair and transient. For a little while only does the fresh purity of the color re main. Seed-pods are formed, the pet als wither, the beauty passes. It is part of a procession, and in the very act of breathing a sigh of regret that what is so fair should be so evanes cent, attention is caught by a new set •f florets that swell out till they oc cupy the place of those that have faded. The daffodil, either in the mass or the individual, possesses a kind qT wistfulness such as might come from gazing from the outside of some im passable gate over those fabled plains whereon the ancient d-eamed It grew. Hut the tulip wlien dominant is of an opposite character. An emobidiment of color without fragrance. It com bines with the butterfly to show gay ety unmlxed with sentiment. The daf fodil is a romantic maiden, the tulip a tripping ballet girl, exquisitely dressed, satisfying the taste for color, but touching no emotion. How differ ent with the rose. "Age cannot wither nor custom stale her Infinite variety.” In the rosary of the rich, in the gar den plot of the poor, embellishing a pergola or covering the cottage walls, it tells the same tale, and suggests the same old song. “Oh. my luve Is like a red. red rose that’s newly sprung In June.” Oder and color and form all unite, and when we speak of what transcends life, there is no simile finer than that of the "unfad ing” rose. Its mention carries us back to the fields. A garden close is well, but "a diviner and more pellucid air” hangs over the wild thicket and hedge row where the dog rose is In Its glory. The wind blowing over grass and half grown corn when the wild rose is at its height, dissipntes t'\e garden senti ment. It is a dominating flower in early July, and so we appear to be taking our pageant backward almost. Hut, indeed, the best of a procession is not always to be seen from a fixed point. Instead of watching all the flowers of a season file past in order, as though they were soldiers at a re view. it is more interesting to take a bit here and a bit there according as caprice or interest may dictate. And the wild sweet summer, as Wordsworth says, "flaunts” all its beauty on the wild rose. It bursts out on the thicket, It takes possession of the hedgerow, it blossoms on the waste place. Like a million small and happy faces its buds open, till the earth Is glowing with their beauty. Yet the fragile bloom will scarcely bear to be plucked, and its stay with us is as brief as that of the daffodil. Hut a very little while and the petals flutter down and the rank grass and summer's dark green reassert them selves. Of wild flowering shrubs there is none more dominating while It lasts than the broom. Its rough predeces sor, the gorse, only gives a taste of the effect it produces. The gorse is REARING THE BABY OSTRICH Mother Bird Sits on the Eggs by Day and the Father at Night—Need Constant Care. There are many little ostriches hatched this time of the year near Phoenix, Ariz., a correspondent In that town writes to St. Nicholas. The old birds sit on eight to ten eggs, which are very large, weighing from three to four pounds each. It takes about six weeks for the eggs to hatch. Sometimes when it rains the eggs are taken from the nest and put in large incubators, as the ostrich will not sit on a wet nest. The ostriches are very different from chickens. The mother bird, being gray, can not be seen in the daytime, and the father being black, can not be seen very well at night, so the mother sits on the nest during the day and the father at night, which helps to hide the nest. The little ostriches are about tho size of a bantam hen when hatched and are very delicate. If they get always throwing out blossoms, but even at its best it is as bronze to gold compared with the great yellow mass of the broom in flower. On the Surrey commons it makes a brave show, but is not so commanding as on the great wastes of the north, where it spreads out into vast stretches of blazing and shining gold. In the days of our youth old men remembered, or of them their fathers had told them, the huge fields of broom, the bushes of which were taller than tho tallest man, that stretch over what is now a cultivated area of hedged fields and red-tiled farmhouses where the Cheviots slope to the Till. Hut those noted agricul turists, the brothers Culley, had more appreciation of the homely turnip than "tho burning bush,” and It was their grubbing and plowing that transformed a region so wildly pictur esque Into a fruitful land. What it was like before their operations be gan may be known from the appear ance of the land that has proved ir reclaimable. llow familiar and yet how Impressive the broom was may be judged from the frequency with which it finds a place in the old bal lads. after Its petals have fallen to the ground In the south it contin ues In Highland strath and glen what time the angler penetrates them In search of trout. There are several white flowers that sweep past like visionary clouds in the procession. First, the "wee mod est crimson-tipped” one that spreads over meadow and golf course till, in the sunny days of May when the nightingale is In full song, they rest like sheets of snow on the warm ground. Following close upon them is that truly English flower, tho haw thorn. It is unobtrusive in the thicket and well-trimmed hedge: but when the bushes have been allowed to grow tall for the sake of shelter, or where In dividual trees abound, it assumes for a brief period an unquestioned do minion. The garlands of pure soft white It hangs out make the color of the landscape while they last, and the fragrance It diffuses has no equal, save it be that of an orchard when the apple trees are in bloom and resonant with the humming of innum erable bees. With the decay of the hawthorn comes a feeling of sadness It was with unmixed Joy that we hailed the early figures In the long procession. The maids of January whitening the woodland while the trees are bare are greeted as heralds, cowslips In the meadow and primroses on the steep sides of the dene are still but harbingers. We have no thought of the end when the marsh-marigold shines like fire on swamps and hoi lows gray, nor when "the faint sweet cuckoo-flower” spreads nodding over the low-lying meadows, till by force ol numbers Its exquisite and delicate shape and color master those of its companions. But the fading of the hawthorn tells of spring's early ex piry, and when the wild rose has bios somed and faded we know that anoth er “pretty ring time” has been added to the past. No other occurrence in the year strikes an equal note of sad ness, especially among those of riper years. It is the enviable privilege of youth to live In the passing hour and enjoy the mystic "Now," and to bf ever looking forward to some new dis covery or adventure. But as we grow old and lose our illusions, we gain the dismal knowledge that the flight ol time Is much more likely to discover the disagreeable than the pleasnt, and we also become more keenly alive tc the transient character of most things wet they die. When first hatched they are not fed very much for a week. Later they get all the alfalfa grass and broken bones they want. They grow very fast, and when six months old they arc six feet high, and their pretty feathers are then cut from their wings. They are full grown when one year old, but do not lay eggs until three or four years old. Curious Suit for Loss of Bride. A young man is bringing suil against a ghaphologist in Paris for substantial damages. A pretty heiress to whom he was engaged to be mar ried showed a specimen of his hand writing to the graphologist and askec for information. This is the reply sh< got: “If you should meet the man whe wrote these lines upon your waj through life, avoid him. Me is an ego Ist and a fool, has a bad temper and a despicable nature. The existence ol the woman who has the misfortune to marry him will be unbearable.' The marriage has been broken off Hence the action. MOISTURE IN LAND Retained by Layer of Loose Soil by Diminishing Evaporation. This Mulch, if Maintained Throughout the Season, by Proper Cultivation Will Prove More Beneficial Than Straw to Conserve Water. If the soil reservoir has been well prepared and rains have filled it with capillary water, tillage should be di rected to reducing the loss of water by evaporation to the lowest possible point. The water that passes through the plants themselves is of benefit to the crops; that evaporating directly from the soil is wholly lost. In spite of all that can be done there will be losses from the soil In drying weather, but these may be materially reduced. A loose soil with large pores has low capillary power and will absorb but little water from a moist soil in contact with it; therefore a layer of such soil covering the moist soil reser voir will conserve the water in the latter by diminishing direct evapora tion from it. It is well established by the experience of farmers as well as by direct experiments that a layer of loose dry soil three or four inches deep is effective in preventing the ex cessive drying of soils. If this mulch be maintained through the season by projer cultivation, it is more bene ficial than a straw mulch. In the course of a long dry period it has been found to conserve the moisture as well as the straw mulch, and there are several disadvantages with the latter. If put on early, the straw mulch keeps the s/irface soil wet In the spring and summer. This makes the soil cold, excludes the air and causes plants to root near the surface. When this surface soil dries out, these roots cannot supply water and the crop suffers. The soil mulch and the cultivation to produce It cause the plants to root deeply, the aeration of the soil is improved. nn4 in all respects the effects of the dust mulch are good. To be most effective the surface tillage must be kept up. The soil must be cultivated after each rain of a sufficient amount to puddle the surface —that is, cause it to run together and form a crust on drying. Experience has shown that the rapid and complete drying of the sur face which ensues in some portions of the semi-arid region forms a mulch which serves to reduce evaporation from the deeper soil. In some cases It has been claimed to be as effective as that produced by tllluge, but it is less certain and should not be relied on. Therefore In dry farming in the west, as well as in farming under humid conditions, tillage to produce and maintain a dust mulch should be the universal practice. In a dry time it will pay to run a small tooth culti vator through the corn, although It be later in the season than corn is usual ly cultivated and the plants are so tall that the double cultivator cannot be used. If the soil has been kept loose on top of the plants will have rooted below the dust mulch and the late culture of the surface will not in jure them. It will aid in retaining moisture, will facilitate the aeration of the soil, and increase the activities of desirable micro-organisms. It is usual to speak of a “dust mulch,” but the better mulch has a granular structure and Is not com posed of dust. In open countries the dust would blow off, to the detriment of the soil, and a dust surface would not absorb the rainfall so steadily ns thut composed of very small lumps of soil. Diversified Cropping. Alfalfa. Held corn, broine grass, po tatoes, etc., also give excellent results on arid farms. Alfalfa should be sown with a drill at the rate of about eight pounds per acre. A disc run over the field every spring will be found bene ficial. Corn and potatoes should be planted in check-rows, the cultivation should be flat and not ridged, as less water will be lost in this way. Brome grass is by far the best grass grown on arid land. It is sown broadcast in the spring at the rate of from 16 tft 20 pounds an acre. It may be used either for pasture or for hay. The hay is of excellent quality and is relished by all farm animals. Sweet Corn Forage. Sweet corn for a forage crop can hardly be excelled when planted for that purpose, at several different times, so It can be continued for a considerable time in a proper condi tion to be fed with ears on, from the time the kernels begin to show until it begins to ripen. Hungarian or mil let gives good satisfaction where a good growth can be secured. This needs land thoroughly pulverized and aft heavily dressed as does the corn, ’ftien with one bushel of good seed to the acre, sowed after the ground is well warmed and dried, a good yield of good food for cows or other neat stock may confidently be expected. To Kill Sparrows. A method of getting rid of the Eng lish sparrow pests is described by a poultry breeder, whose yards were visited by the sparrows in such num bers as to seriously interfere with his profits. He fastened a small box about four inches deep, on a post five feet high, placed just outside of his poultry yard. This box he kept supplied with poisoned chick feed. The sparrows entered cordially Into the new feeding program and several hundred of them left bodily testimonials to the palata bility of the food. Toads as Bug Catchers. As high as $25 per 100 is sometimes paid for live toads by English and French gardeners. The toad is a high ly appreciated personage in foreign gardens. Shelters are made for the toads—shallow holes In the ground covered with flat stones or boards. The toads will retire into these in the day time and come forth at dusk for their nightly insect forays. Prof. Hodge of Clark university es timated that every time the farmer’s boy killed a toad he was destroying S2O worth of stock on the farm. Her Company.

There is consider.!! said of recent years concerning ih«* value of tho mulch for orchards, *si»all fruits, and, indeed, many crops I have noticed wh | put a mulch of litter and straw about the apple trees that the small roots take pos session of the soil >ii» to the very sur face. The trees seem to respond to the mulch especially in dry season. if we go to the forest we find that nature keeps the surface of the soil covered with a mulch of leaves and trash of one kind am! another. Where the groum! is exposed to winds and the leaves are blown away we are very apt to find dwarfed growth of timber and a pretty badly exhausted soil, whi!.* the soil where the leaves from th< exposed places are deposited Is correspondingly richer. A few years ago I was sowing some clover seed. At on- •nd of the field there was a small plot of very hard dry clay. It had never produced any grain and It had always been a waste of seed to put it to any crop. I had drawn my < orn to this corner and husked It and hacked the stover there. There was a pretty good coat of shatters scattered over the ground. I scattered clover seed over the litter and I never saw a better set of clover. It grew rapidly until late in the sum mer, when a very severe drought set in, which almost killed it out in spite of the mulch. The growth of this clo ver was wholly due to the mulch on the surface, as it would have hardly sprouted without a mulch, A few year? ago I put some planks over early beans to protect them from frost. After the danger of frost was past I put part of them between the rows nnd left them for some two weeks. The balance were removed entirely. There was a rather dry spell while the planks lay on the ground. When I removed them I found that the beans where the planks lay between the rows had made double the growth of the ones where the planks had been moved entirely away This was entirely due to the mois ture saved by the planks acting as a mulch. Frequent shallow cultivation makes the surface soil act as a mulch to con serve moisture. CULTIVATION IN DRY WEATHER. Summer rains beat down cultivated soil, forming a hard crust. This hard crust prevents sufficient air from reaching the roots of the crops and also allows the soil to dry out fast. Hence it is a good plan to give growing plants a light cultivation after each rain to break this crust. This must not be done till the soil becomes dry. for cultivating or plow ing the soil when it is wet packs and injures It. Keeping the surface of the soil fine prevents rapid escape of soil moisture. Water is being continually drawn up from below by capillary action of the Boil particles. If the surface of the soil is hnrd, this soil water escapes Into the air by evaporation. If the surface of the soli Is fine and loose caplllnry action Is broken at the surface, and the water remains below to nourish the roots of the plants. In dry weather crops should be given fine surface cultivation so that all moisture possible shull be retained in the soil for the benefit of the feed ing roots. Making the surface soil fine to pre vent evaporation of moisture is called making a dust mulch.—H. H. Shepard. Shady Place for Pigs. It will pay to have a cool, shady place where it is rather dark, If pos sible, for the pigs to lie in during the heat of the day, with free access to a mixture of salt, copperas, lime and ashes. The feeder should watch closely to see that every pig is eating with a relish. If the pigs cough it Is probably due to a dusty shed. Worms will ab-> cause a cough, and if the hair becomes staring and dead in appearance, it is well a worm powder. The pigs will fee ready for market at any time after six or eight months. What Becomes of the Corn. In the year 19"8, when the total crop was 2,666,000,001) bushels, 241,000,000 bushels were ( >msumed in flour and grist mill products, 8,000,000 bushels In the manufacture of starch, 9,000,000 bushels for malt liquors, 17,000,000 bushels In the iroductlon of distilled liquors, 40,000,0')0 bushels for glucose, 190.000,000 busle is for export and 13,- 000,000 bushels for seed, making a to tal of 518.000.01)0 bushels, or 19.3 per cent, of the entire crop. The remaining 80.7 per cent., or 2,118,000,000 bushels seems to have i»e#n used almost en tirely for feeding. Soil Condition. The physical or mechanical condi tion of the soil is the all important factor, as it has more to do with the quantity and quality of the crop yield than any other one thing. If the seed and root bed is not properly prepared all the after cultivation cannot bring the highest yield. No matter how much moisture you have conserved in the soil below or how completely you may keep the "• eeds out you cannot reach the high limit of yield without close and careful attention to the preparation of the soil. Hog for Meat. The pig that is to be sold for meat has but a few months to live, and there should be no letup in feeding from birth. It will begin to eat shelled corn at three or four weeks of age, and a little sweet skim milk or a thick mush of the same material as that given the mother, is a great help to hasten growth. Pure Breed Superior. Every farmer should go into the pure breed poultry class. The attrac tiveness of the flock will result in better care In addition to the nat ural inbred superiority of the stand ard bred fowl P®r ttltoe JJtosttess Chat on Topics of Maoy Kii>ds» by z AutboHV- An Unique Party. There are “novelties In entertain ment" at the seashore as well as in town, uml this scheme of a New Jersey girl is one that “took” wonderfully. The afTnir was held on the broad piaz za surrounding the house that faced the grand old ocean. The invitations were for a “bottle” party, each guest was requested to bring a bottle (empty) any size or shape. Of course every one wondered what the result would bn when the motley collection of bottles appeared on the table waiting to receive them. After a few moments spent in spec ulating as to the future of “those bot tles," the hostess brought in yard lengths of crepe paper of many colors, cotton, pins, odds and ends of ribbon, etc., and requested each guest to se lect a bottle and transform it into a doll; there was a supply of corks to use in forming heads, which wore cov ered with cotton. A half hour was allowed to finish these creations; prizes were awarded for the best, worst and funniest. Next the hostess passed cards with pencils attached, numbered from 1 to 20; the guests worn taken into a room in which stood 20 bottles, each bear ing a tag numbered from 1 to 20. Yel low paper concealed the contents of the bottles, which were pill size tip to gallons. One “sniff” or “whiff” was permitted, then the supposed contents were written down opposite the num ber on the card. Lavendar salts, bottles of cologne, and sachets were given as prizes. The next test was very pretty. Each guest was blindfolded and led nround the room in which flowers were ar ranged in vases on mantel and tables. The one who recognized the most flow ers by the odor received a handsome nosegay surrounded by a frill of lace paper. The refreshments consisted of flow er forms made in Ices and (Teams with dainty little cakes ornaincnW’d with candied rose and violet leaves. For a Children’s Party.

Since satin buttons have become so fashionable and have remained so perishable the factories have been try ing to improve their make. They have done so. The new ones have tiny metul rims which not only add luster and character to the button, but kept It from fraying out at the edges. No matter how much one pays for the usual satin or braid buttons they quickly go to pieces at the edges where the mold cuts through the fine fabric. This causes a constant re newal of buttons, which is tiresome enough even when one can match the old ones, and positively irritating when one has to spend a day in the shops trying to get similar substi tutes. The metal rim protects the buttoD and keeps It from wearing as long as it is used. ••Talk is cheap.” Therefore, don’t hand out too much of it.
