No structure about the garden or yard will give more value for the .same time and cost than a hot-bed. Painting aids greatly in improving the appearance and prolonging the lite of machines. It should be used freely wheu needed. Red lead and linseed oil make a tenacious paint and one of the best for all farm implements. The farmer who puts away his farm machinery without oiling and cleaning it is certain to lose iu the deterioration of the machinery many times what the time to care for it would have been worth.

To this end, we will, first on any andev 'ry occasion relieve our credit ors of as much of the strain (that their liability have put them under In advancing whatever of their ware was needed to further our farms) by selling some commodity and placing the proceeds to the!r credlc. And, second, by placing actual needs ahead Farms at Low Rates BARGAINS ! of desires; and whensoever there is no actual need to occasion buying at all we will abstain from same until such time as we may do so without asking and receiving credit that any further strain may be kept from the country's finances. Resolved, That we will not give heed to the calamity howlers, pessi mists and extremists; that we cutout commercial fertilizers and cotton en tlrely, and, Instead grow oats to the exclusion of everything else, thus put ting ourselves in an even worse shape than does all cotton, for other sections can grow oats whereas no other part of our common country can divide the cotton monopoly with us. Resolved, That all we need to give us the benefits of a monopoly is a more systematic and business like method uf making and marketing this staple ne cessity, for the world to come to terms and give us a living price for the fruits of our labor. To this end, we will plan and work to make this and a full quota of food and feed-crops at the least possible cost, that we may not then, as now, have to sacrifice all to the debt The farm's fertility shall be further augmented by a more careful handling of the animal residue, and In tne seasons to come, these shall be better provided for more feed, and better feed, more and better shelter, and more and better stock even, shall be provided on our farm to take care of Us feeds, Inmates and the markets; and still further Increase the fertility and crop yields. Resolved, That we will continue to abstain from all intoxicants whatso ever; and that we will further resist the desire to "sell out and move to town" and occupy a 3 by 4 pen with an alley frontage at a toll of seven per month, to be paid out of a weekly stipend of six to seven fifty and a score more of things making the same de mands on the said six to seven ilfty. That the same amount of early rising, rushitig and working will give more of creature comforts and pleasures out In the ouen aud much discredited coun try, and that we will apply the same principles of "push consignments" to our farm and note the results, fully ex pecting an Increase as good or better from a change in amount of energy ex pended In the country, as may be ob tained from same In town, the latter being compulsory. Rex McKay, Geor gia, In Inland Farmer. Now is the time to subscribe FACTS ABOUT LAMBS. E. L. Vincent In The Inland Parmer. Never within my recollection has the outlcok for the American farmer been better than it is right now, so far as sheep and lambs are concerned The country is being raked and scraped as with a fine tooth comb for wool and mutton. The farmer who brings a lamb to market will not have to go far to sell it. Everything that belongs to the sheep industry Is certainly booming. And the prospect is good for some time to come. Wool the world must have; meat is going to be a staple article for all time. It has seemed to me worth while all along to urge farmers who are situated so they can to keep some sheep. The wisdom 61 this course must now, be ap parent. For a minute or two, let us think of the lambs. These are to be the sheep of tomorrow. How shall they De cared for to make them the best possible? On many farms, the lamb does not have a very good time, tie is otten left to shift for himself and, more times than ought to be, he is kicked around and abused, counted as of very little account The sensible roan will look on his lambs as money in the bank, drawing interest every day. He will give them just the best place he can to stay in, not necessarily a warm place, but a good dry place, with some shelter from the winds and the storms. Cold storms take a great deal out of lambs It stops their growth in a greater or lesser degree. For an uncomfortable lamb cannot put on as much flesh nor develop In body as It would otherwise, Seems as if it ought not to be said that lambs ought to be well fed. That thould go as a matter of course. But what Is good feeding for a lamb? Often the lamb in the winter months gets lit. tie besides dry hay, perhaps timothy at that, which is a very poor feed for any animal, when given exclusively, if feeding timothy, add to the rution some grain every day. We have found that oats are as good as anything we ever tried for this purpose. A bit of corn meal and an occasional change to wheat bran make for the best good of the Iamb, As lambs are apt to be more or less constipated In winter, the .wheat bran helps to counteract this tendancy. As laxatives, also, a fewvegetables reg ularly are good. Turnips, chopped BARGAINS ! fine, have a good effect in bringing about a free movement of the bowels. To this we may add salt in a fair amount and plenty of good water. And it should be temembered that the lambs should be well fed, both before and after they have stopped taking milk from the mother sheep. It may be doubted whether or not there is n better grain feed for lambs than ground corn, so far as putting on flesh Is concerned. The lambs like it, nnd when balanced by laxatives such as have been mentioned above, we may look for good growth. But a word of caution Is in place here. When corn meal Is fed in too large quantities, to the exclusion of other and more lax ative foods, sickness may follow. Take a ration of all timothy hay and all ground corn meal and the chances are that we will soon have sick sheep. To lighten up a ration, ground peas are good, and these are almost as good as meal to make flesh. It is not best to have either the corn or the peas ground too fine. The lambs seem to like the coarser ground food best and do full better on it. Just a word here as to the compara tive gain made by pure bred lambs and those that have little pure blood in them. We often hear It said that this has little to do with the progress a lamb may make, but careful experiments prove that this Is not true. A lot of lambs of well-bred and well-kept stock was matched against a like number of scrubs, with the result that the better bred lambs on the same feed made 8.6 pounds per week a head against 3.27 pounds for the scrubs. Here Is a bint we may well take. Cough Medicine for Children. Never give a child a cough medicine that contains opium in any form. When opium Is given other and more serious diseases may follow. Long ex perience has demonstrated that there is no better or safer medicine for coughs, colds and croup in children than Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It Is equally valuable for adults. Try it. It contains no opium or other harmful drug. For bale by all dealers. The Fair That Educates. . The thirteenth annual Kentucky State Fair will be held in Louisville, Septem ber I3 to 18.
