Tjelns may be it is safe to say that
Tiot many months are passed without
some obstruction of the bowels, in other
words, constipation, even if only tem
porary. The bloating, the dull feeling
may start after the evening meal. If a
laxative is not taken that night it is
certain that sleep will not be sound,
and you will awaken unrefreshed.
Hence, it is important for you and for
all the members of your family that a
Kood. reliable laxative be always kept
in the house for just such emergency.
Jt is sure to be needed, and when needed
70U want it at hand. No family that is
careful of its health can do without such
a. remedy. But the question of which
remedy to have on hand is also of vast

Bradley vs. Beckham Again.
It may be that the next race
for United States Senator in Ken
tucky will be the old race over
again between W. 0. Bradley
and J. C. W. Beckham. Sena
tor Bradley has announced that
he will be a candidate again for
the Republican nomination. If
he does not change his mind
there can be but little doubt that
he will secure the Republican
nomination in the primary elect
ion next August. With Bradley
as the Republican candidate the
Progressive will certainly have a
candidate, for of all the Repub
licans in the State Bradley is the
most offensive to the Progres
sive party. 0 f course under
these conditions any candidate
nominated b y the Democrats
will have a walk over, Woodrow
Wilson had a plurality of 100,
000 votes with Republican and
Progressive tickets in the field
against him and the Democratic
nominee for United States Sen
ator under the same conditions
would have eqvally as large a
plurality. In the event that the
Progressive party goes to pieces
before next year, aup there are
some signs of that, at least half
of the progressive would vote
for a progressive Democrat be
fore they would for Bradley.
Just now every one realizes that
Eq-Governor Beckham is the
probable nominee among the

well and afford
great pleasure to
the family on a little
farm. They are ideal
products where the
place is small and sit
uated near a city, so
that they may be sold
to families or hotels and restaurants.
Much waste and loss of profit will be
avoided by delivering to private cus
tomers. An advantage in raising berries
comes from the quick growth as well
as from the small acreage required.
It takes only a year to get started
with small fruits. They can be grown
in an orchard and will return a large
amount of money in the years when
peach and apple trees are coming to
maturity. The more this orchard
ground is stirred the better, and the
cultivation of berries is of actual bene
fit to the large fruits. A fair yield of
strawberries will bring $200 to $300 an
acre, according to market conditions.
Raspberries return 30 to 50 per cent
Small fruit requires a rich, well
drained soil. A light, deep loam is
best, and an abundance of well rotted
barnyard fertilizer should be plowed
in. Soggy land is not favorable to any
kind of fruits, but nevertheless mois
ture is needed, and unless rain is plen
tiful it will pay to carry water or con
vey it by means of hose.
Plant at the proper time in hills or
hedges and keep the soil loose with
hoe or cultivator. Pinch off all blos
soms the first season. Mulch with
straw and manure in the fall. Straw
berries are hardy and prolific, but skill
ed attention will pay in extent and
quality of production. With a view to
successful marketing both early and
late varieties should be cultivated.
Raspberries are next in importance.
There is not so much tedious work con
nected with growing raspberries as
strawberries, and the profits are not
quite so large. Set the plants in the
spring in rows six feet apart and three
feet apart in the rows. This gives
plenty of room for cultivating, which
must be done thoroughly throughout
the growing season. Some experts do
not stake raspberries, as is the custom
with most growers. When the tips are
about two feet high they are pinched
back. This causes laterals to be sent
out along the stems. In the spring at
trimming time these laterals are cut
back so as to leave about six inches,
and they hold up all the berries they
can properly mature.
The red varieties do not need the
summer pruning, but are pruned back
to about eighteen inches in the spring.
Currants and gooseberries require
almost the same treatment and can be
considered together. One or two year
old plants are best and should be set
In rows four feet apart jeach way so j
that they may be cultivated both ways.
This method insures thorough and
easy cultivation. They should be cul
tivated frequently so as to have a good
soil mulch during the growing season
It is best to grow the plants in bush
form and trim out very little, only the
surplus and deadwood.
It is very important to kill all cur
rant worms with some poisonous spray
as soon as they appear. If this is neg
lected the bushes will soon be de
stroyed. When a producer has established a
reputation for having a good quality
of fruit and giving full measure there
will be no difficulty in securing cus
tomers. If the product exceeds the de
mand of private patrons it is always
possible to ship to stores or commis
sion houses. Bear in mind, however,
that the selling end of the business is
important and try to arrange In ad
vance for private customers or retail
merchants to take the whole output

GROWING OF SEASONINGS.
Green Herbs Should Be Gathered Be
fore Day Becomes Very Warm.
Green herbs if freshly and properly
gathered are richest In flavoririg sub
stances and when added to sauces,
fricassees, stews, etc., reveal their
freshness by their particles as well as
by their decidedly finer flavor. In sal
ads they almost entirely supplant both
the dried and the decocted herbs since
their fresh colors are pleasing to the
eye and their- crispness to the palate,
whereas the specks of the dried herbs
would be objectionable, and both these
and the decoctions impart a somewhat
inferior flavor to such dishes.
No matter in what condition or for
what purpose they are to be used the
flavors of foliage herbs are invariably
best in well developed leaves and
shoots still in full vigor of growth.
With respect to the plant as a whole
these flavors are most abundant and
pleasant just before the flowers ap
pear. Since they are generally due to
essential oils which are quickly dissi
pated by heat they are more abundant
In the morning than after" the sun has
reached the zenith.
As a general rule, therefore, best re
sults with foliage herbs, especially
those to be used for drying and infus
ing, may be secured when the plants
seem ready to flower, the harvest be
ing made as soon as the dew has dried
and before the day has become very
warm. The leaves of parsley, how
ever, may be gathered as soon as they
attain that deep green characteristic
of the mature leaf. Since the leaves
are produced continuously for many
weeks the mature ones may be re
moved every week or so, a process
which encourages the further produc
tion of foliage and postpones the ap
pearance of the flowering stem. Amer

Simple Directions For Putting Togeth

A cheap and substantial gate can be

where a swing gate is needed. Use

The whole affair is securely put to
gether with three-eighth inch bolts.
The crosspieces and long saplings are
flattened where they are bolted togeth
er. The large upright at the back end
of the gate should be flattened on one
side and also sawed in a little for each
slat, then a crosspiece put over and
bolted like the rest of the frame.
The whole thing should be peeled
and then painted, unless one desires to
use cedar, which would be rustic and
perhaps more enduring. Brace with
good strong wires to keep in shape,
and give further strength by going
from the top of the long upright to the
top of front crosspiece and then from
that point to the bottom of rear of the

Patching For Tar Roofs.
Occasionally there is a place on the
farm where it is necessary to use a tar
or tarred .paper roof. These roofs are
likely to develop holes in weak places
or where the laps come. For patching
these holes and cracks nothing is bet
ter than a piece of fairly heavy cloth
from an overall or jacket cut a little
bigger than the hole. Cover entire
patch and the roof around the hole
with tar. It will make a serviceable
patch and is easily put on. Farm and

New Bdd of Scallops. gf&
Trie demand for sea food is a
persistent and increasing one, so
much so that id some lines the
supply is threatening with ex
tinction. This i s particularly
true of the lobster, which is ev
ery year becoming scarcer and
consequently dearer, and even
the succulent clam is not found
in its former abundance in those
haunts to which it once gave
fame. But the scallop is a good
substitute, and the report just
made to the secretary of com
merce that a bed of the giant va
riety, thirty miles wide and ex
tending from Rhode Island to the
Virgitia capjes, has been found,
is very reassuring. The common
kind are plenty enough, but they
are only half as large as the gi
ant variety, and not accounted
helf so great a delicacy. This
new source of supply is regarded
as practically inexhaustible, and
it is not likely to have an im
mediately lowering effect upon
the price of a hotel order.
