Lime For The Soil.
Do not fail to test liming the
soil on your farm for this is one
of the promising features of
progressive farming. Not long
ago, but few thought of adding
lime to the soil, but now almost
every progressive farmer is ex
perimenting, and the weight of
evidence is greatly in favor of
applying lime to our fields to
sweeten the soil more friable and
to make available fertility that
has been held in the soil for
many years, unavailable for
plant food. Do not apply lime
in foliage ,it growing crops.
Winter or early spring are the
best seasons to apply, but it can
be applied any time if there is
no crop on the soil to be burned
by the lime.

When the Hon. Mr. Ward wrote his
novel "Tremalne" he was fearful of
acknowledging himself the author un

He accordingly, the better to
preserve his Incognito, sent the mam.
script copy by the wife of his attorm

ccepted, was not ctasldered likely to
pay extremely well, and consequently
a trifling sum was given for it. Con
trary, however, to Mr. Colburn's ex
pectations. It ran to three editions.
The ingenious author of "Vivian
Grey." then twenty-two years old, hav
ing heard of the circumstances, deter

cordingly, having arranged his work
for publication, he proceeded to find
out the honorable gentleman's fair

The woman was instantly recognized
by Mr. Colburn as the same person

One of the Reasons Why the Prized

"This stole of Imperial ermine la

"In the first place, they were caught

only In such a winter that the weasel,
or ermine, turns from tawny to snow
white. In normal winters the ermine
only turns to a greenish white, like this
$400 greenish white stole here.
"In the second place, the ermines
were caught young, for when fully de

The Blanket Tree.
Blankets grow on trees in Ecuador,
and. while the idea of an all wood
fresh from the forest bed covering
might give Insomnia and a backache to
the child of civilization who likes to
snuggle comfortably under several lay
ers of down and wool, the natives find
It all right, as in fact it is.
When an Ecuador Indian wants a
blanket he hunts up a demajagua tree
and cuts from it a five or six foot sec
tion of the peculiarly soft, thick bark.
This is dampened and beaten until the
flexibility of the sheet is much Increas
ed. The rough gray exterior is next
peeled off. and the sheet dried in the
sun. The result is a blanket, soft,
light and fairly warm, or an attractive
cream color. It may be rolled Into a
compact bundle without hurt and with
ordinary usage will last for several
years. Harper's.
