A* Zcamplc la rcsaij-lvaEla-A Fif
teen Acre Dairy Farm.
By W. J. SPIELMAX. department of ag
riculture.
The motbud of management ou a fif
teen aore farm that raises all the
roughage for thirty heart of stoek, sev
enteen of which are cows in milk,
cannot fail to be of interest to fann
ers In all parts of the country. The
farm In question is situated in south
eastern Pennsylvania, near a large
city. About thirteen acres are in cul
tivation, the remaining two acres be
ing occupied by farm buildings, yard,
etc. This farm came into the posses - j
sion of tlie present owner (Rev. J. I). !
Detrlck, a minister -with no previous
experience in farming), in 18S1, with a
mortgage of S7,2ihj upon it. For the
first year the farm lacked $46 of pay
ing expenses. During the next six
years the mortgage was paid.
Systematic Management.
Tlie writer has never seen another
farm on which system is so pronounced
a feature. Without referring to notes
of any kind, the owner detailed the
crops growing ou each small subdivi
sion, the crops that had been grown on
each for two to three years past and
those that would be grown for as long
in the future. In most cases the dates
of seeding and harvesting were given.
A |>eeuliar feature of the management
is that each of the principal operations
is performed on a fixed day each suc
ceeding year or as near to it as the
weather will permit. Not a pound of
solid or liquid manure goes to waste
on tlds farm, and the soil Is in such
condition that it is more nearly inde
pendent of weather conditions than any
other soil the writer has ever seen.
Torrential rains are soaked up in a
very short time, so that the soil may
he handled after a rain much sooner
than that of adjacent farms. It is
therefore not difficult to adhere ap
proximately to a prearranged pro
gramme. For instance, early corn for
soiling is planted May 8; late corn for
silage, June 22; grass seed, about Aug.
22, and so on.
Products Sold.
The farm is strictly a dairy farm,
(he only products regularly sold being
milk and a few head of young cattle
each year. The cows are all register
ed Jerseys, except one or two picked
up at sales on neighboring farms. They
are not only pure bred, but they are
well bred. There is not a star boarder
in the herd. Male calves, if worthy of
it, are reared for breeding purposes,
but none is ever vealed. If a male
call' is not lit to raise for a breeder It
is killed at birth. "It doesn't pay to
feed SIS worth of milk to a calf that
w ill sdl fjr SB," said the owner. The
young cattle sold from this farm bring
on au average SIOO apiece, and about
live are Hold uach year.
The milk Is sold at 25 cents a gallon
tlx- year around to a state institution
located two miles distant in a neighbor
ing salrarb. Jt tests on the average
3.8 per cent. It will be seen that this
is a very moderate price, considering
the quality.
The amouut of milk produced Is
nearly the same at all seasons and
averages about twenty-six gallons n
day, or 4,800 pounds a year for each
of tlie seventeen cows kept—not an
enormous yield, but a good one. This
gives an Income from milk of about
$2,400 a year. The outlay for concen
trated feeding stuiT Is about $025 a
yea r.
Okrn Culture.
OUru can be produced on any good
.4011, and the crop requires no special
attention other than that which would
ordinarily be given a crop of corn or
cotton.
I'lant early In the spring or as soon
as all danger of frost has passed.
Keep the pods well picked in order
that tlie plants may not become ex
hausted by the maturing of the seed,
and the pods will continue to be pro
duced until late in the fall.
Do not cook the pods In plain Iron
cooking utensils or in copper or brass,
Kemember that tlio taste for tlie okra
flavor has to be acquired by some per
sons.
The varieties of okra best adapted to
general use are the dwarf green, long
pod aud the lady linger CW'hlto Ixmlsl
ana) types.—W. It. BeattJe.
Two Seeding* of Clover.
"Make two seeding* of clover, one
how and the other in April. Don't for
get to have one part alslkc to two of
red clover. Do as we say this time,"
advises Farm Journal.
POPULAR GARDENING
Nitrate of soda aud kalnlt are some
times used as a dressing for land be
fore sowing seeds or setting plants
likely to be attacked by the cutworm.
Kalnit Is said to be especially good
against the Insects Infesting onion beds.
Most seed will admit of being sown
Moderately thick, but It Is a mistake
to sow too thickly, as the plants be
come weak from overcrowding. Much
time is lost In (binning out, and tlie
grouud becomes Impoverished. '
(jet busy as soon as the weather per
mits if you do not wish to see your
neighbors gather their first crops days
or weeks ahead of yourself.
As soon as the soil becomes dry
enough to work no time should be lost
over making the first planting of peas,
spinach, onions and others of tlie more
hardly vegetables, using as much tlior
mjgbly decayed manure as your means
trill permit.
Beets and kohlrabi may be started
iudoors early In March ami after being
hardened In frames placed outdoor*
about April 15.
Make up tint hotbeds now and sow
tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, lettuce,
rnrtlshr-i. etc.
Organ Grinders In Knicland.
By turning the handle of an organ
tho Italian In Filmland obtains nean
eight times as much per week as ht>
can earn In Italy, more than four times
as much as tho Fngllsh farm laborer
and nearly three times the pay of the
policeman who moves him on when
requested. Thousands of f-killed ar
tisans who have served apprenticeship
as carpenters, painters and Joiners get
only half the organ grinder's pax, for
the Italian #»'kons it a very poor week
Indeed If lie makes less than sls, and
ho often gets $17.50 to S2O or more.
The Anitler Fish.
The angler llsli angles for bis prey.
From the upper part of Ills head project
two long tentacles, with ilesby extrem
ities, which wave about In the water
and attract small fish, that, approach
ing aud attempting to seize tlio sup
posed bait, are themselves captured by
the anglor. Without this devlco to at
j tract his prey be would probably starvu
to death, as he is heavy and of com
paratively slow motion.

Is Disease a Crime ?
I 9bt very long ago, a pcptur aaraziso
' pnDilihed an editorial article In which
J The writer averted. In substance, that all
disease eha-.M bp regarded as criminal.
Certain ft is, that much of the sickness
and suffering of mankind is due to the
violation of certain of Nature's laws.
But to say that all sickness should be
regarded as criminal, must appeal to
every reasonable Individual as radically
wrong.
It would be harsh, unsympathetic,
cruel, yes criminal, to condemn the poor,
weak, over-worked housewife who sinks
under the heavy load of household cares
and burdens, and suffers from weak
nesses, various displacements of pelvic
organs and other derangements peculiar
to her sex.
FreQnent bearln* of children, with its ex
acting demands upon the system, coupled
with the care, worry and labor of rearing a
largo family. Is often tho causo of weak
r.esaos. derangement* and debility which are
aggravated by tho many household cares,
and the hard, and never-ending work which
the mother Is called upon to perform. Dr.
l'ierce. the maker of that world-famed rem
edy for woman's peculiar weaknesses and
Ills—Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription—says
that one of the greatest obstacles tc the cure
of this class of maladies Is the fact that tho
poor, over-worked housewife can not get the
. noeded rest from her many household cares
; and labor to enable her to secure from the
! use of his "Prescription " Its full benefits. It
! Is a matter of frequent experience, he says,
I In his extensive practice In theso case*, to
meet with thoso In which bis treatment falls
by reason of the patient's Inability to abstain
from hard work long euough to be cured.
With those suffering from prolapsus, ante
version and retroversion of tho uterus or
other displacement of the womanly organs.
It Is very necessary that. In addition to tak
ing his "Favorite Prescription" they abstain
from being very much, or for long periods, on
their feet. All heavy llft'.ng or straining of
any kind should also be avoided. As much
out-door air as possible, with moderate, light
exercise Is also very important. Let tho
fiatlent observe these rules and thc"Favor
te Prescription " will do tho rest.
