I went; he showed me the different varieties. iitcppInK ainuiiK them with inllnile care. Then we sat down on a little biiuh o.inside of tiro br.i l; do.n'. where hop ines climbed up tin? side of the hoiiiio, uml he lie;;a;i llie story of his life. What prompted him to till It was my utdiiiiK if he never tried to grow any Mowers except tulips. "Try, my man," he said, nbs:n'ly, then was silent for a while A far away look came Inio tho faded eyes. He look his pipe front his ni'-ia h ami knocked the ntdies to the ground. "You've never heard then? I tr.'iiu;hl everyiiody knew aoout my Kitty Kilty and her tulips. "it happened years a so ah, me, so long ano; liul it's as fresh lo me :is ever my Kitty's idmple while face nml (iiult, pansy eyes." His coat sleeve went, across his eyes as if wip ing away a tear. u'Iumi I think of that, morning whi n 1 left her lo eo away out west, I can always see the tulips, too. They were somelliiiiH; Hko llieso, only ah! such blood-roil ones and such wh'te ones, so pure and delicate. Kitty, with her while apron and white linen sun-bonnet, always reminded mo of the while ones. "She lived out in the country. The house stood back from the road and you had to Ko down a lout! lane past the sheep paid tiro and the nppie or hard to find it. I went to see her every day. She was all the world lo me. I loved her loved her with all my heart, and we were to bo married when I came back back from I be west, with my pockets full of money. I I, cut down and kissed her and said. Well, rock! bye, Kitty Kood bye, my K'nl. Keep a light heart till I conn back. Good bye' "lint she put her head on my shoul der and cried, 'Oh, don't go, Jim don't bo,' she kept spying over aim over to the last. That was on the lnornini; before I went aw.iy, out unions the tulips, all by ourselves. "I thought of her always. I wrote to lier every mail for more nan two years, but thou I stonuod wriUiiii. for there had como no answers to my let ters for a long, long time nearly n year. I thought somelhiuK had hap pened to my lo'iors that they rover reached her. It was such an out of the way sort ol p'ace, where 1 was. Hut there was money there if I would only stick to it. and 1 did for two years longer, anil then I went Iiomi, home to my Kitty that 1 knew was waiting for me. "The little station was only a short way from the house about half a jniie. So I walked. I say walked. Iiu! It was more like a run. 1 shaded my eyes nt the head of the lane and looked down, thinking I tui.ht see he: outside, somewhere feeding the chickens, maybe or Fitting on the stoop.

The old man's chin sank on hid breast, and ho was Bilent for some lime Tho shadows of night had fall en. Lights were twinkling in tho windows. "It Is a sad story," I said. "Sad? Oh, yes, I suppose," ho re plied, rousing himself. "But I'm keep ing you here listening, my man. It a growing late time for an old man like me lo go to bed; so good night. Come over in the morning and I'll pull you a bunch of tulips to tako ov r iiome. Well, sood night." "Good night," I said, and loft him. It was a cold, bitter morning in whi ter.

Tho mtn that h:i;t a go.od deal of milk to handle will lii'.d it to l.ls advantage lo urranpo for tauku of lict water In places where he can use tho water when it Is needed. Hoipuntiy mo little kitchen stove und tho teakettlo are the only mean:: of heat Ins w ater, and when tho far.ner has a dozen cows, this way of heating tho water ini;kes It necessary to bo very econ omical In unlas It. Tho gallon of hot water has to bo (iilr.tod with cold wa ter to mr.ko It go nrousd, and tho torn pcraturo that re-nlts Is not too high for germ life to stand. In tho big es-t:ihllshme.-.la tho bottles and other tiletiiills receive a soaking In hot wa ter that will remove any kind cf gorra or put it iu a condition where !t cannot develop. It is often said that it Is poastUo to have too much of a good thing, but this is hardly true of hot water and heat in Iho cleansing of utensils and vessels used in tho milk room. We believe that tho men that are running the bit? bottling es tablishments are sotting an example that should be followed as far as it is possible to do so. Continue to Paraffine Cheese. Tho Canadians are continuing tho paraffining of cheeso in spite of tho fact that some of the consumers of choeso both In Onada and England are objecting to it. This course is advised by tho Drpartnient of Agri culture of tho Dominion of Canada. There arc a number of reasons why paraffining is desirable, one of which Is that the choose is h'ss easily affect ed by tho con.lil.ioas through which it. passes as to nu ids. A cheese that has not been parallinod may bo placed where it is exposed lo u-.old and In a short time Iho mold will ufiect it fo Eoriously that it will bo unrtt for con sumption. There arc numerous con ditions of thi.i kind that have to bo faced; for the choose are sent to many parts of tho world and into all sorts of neighborhoods. Tho paraffined chooser, will go into such places and ho unaffected. The molds cannot pierce the paraffiine, for they find no food in tho medium through which they must go. Molds do not go through tuhstances except as they grow through. If tho protecting coat bo of a substance that will not furnish food for the development of molds, those minute plants cannot live und thrive. In the United States paraffining has been adopted nt some of our experi ment stations, but wo believe has not boon generally adopted in tuo fac tories whore most of our choeso is made. Silo Building, rrofossor McKay of Iowa Is credit ed with the statement that there aro probably not more than ten silos In Iowa. This is surprising In view e,f the fact that silage Is ona of the best foods in tho world for dairy cows. The maximum food of silage for dairy tvs Is 40 pounds and an aero of good corn will provide the rough feed tor a cow for 7"i(l days. Think of It! And tho row will eat the entire stalk rf the corn up clean when it is served to her In the f(rm of silage. It Is surprising to lei-ni that In some of the nt.:tos of the Villon this great savir. ? Is Ignored. This Is especially the ctiso In Iowa and Illinois. There nre st:itM In the T'nlon where Kilos ere numer ous, notably Wlscttssin and New York, rrotos.'fir McKay says that In Iowa mil!; !h produced as experrivi !y as it vurf lu ars ago.

" n n-:y Jra 1 1 t f,f Murf Is Iji t '!' ff Infer X- ff f o Select Seloni Thii 8un.mer, It Is now ijtiltt ge'nirally litlleved that tho scion for grafting tree's slmuiil be Kclei'ted from hearing branches. Wo have suppoHcil In the punt that it was enough to get the scions from any part of tho trre even from tho suckcra crowing on tho nlde. Hut Bomo iiurKerymi n now claim that many of tho host and thriftiest b hoots on tho trees hnvo in them some quality that does not make for i fruit fulness ami that the use of thoso as hcioiiH In tho top working of trcos has reunited In many of tho product of mien top-working being nntriillful. It ii also claimed that kiicIi apples as tho Oano were secured ly marking branches on I5en Pnvls trees that boro l:uely shr.ied and finely colored fruit und graftln,T other trees from them, ami that In this way a variety ot Men Ha vis was developed that seems In appearance at lonst to ho an Improve ment. It la safo enough to assume that this la true, whether it Is or not, for tho other sldo Is not tho unto ono till It la settled that tho opinion ex ploited is an error. It will he well for tho orchardist to now mark tho twigs that he expects to use In tho making of scions, lie can select only thoso that are actually bourlng fruit, und so Increase the fruit-boarlng prob ability of tho trees resulting from his graft. The summer time Is the best time In which to do this selecting, wlillo tho leaves and tho fruit nre still on. Tho vigor may bo largely known lu this way. Method of Cultivation. What is tho best method of culti vating tho orchard? There is no host method, so long as the orchard is cul tivated. Tho chief Idea Is to culti vate to keep dowu woods nnd to keep the moisture from escaping from tho soil In times when tho rainfall is so light that moisture needs to bo con served. Clean cultivation is the host for the orchard as well as for other crops, but clean culture Is not a meth od but n result. Whether tho culti vation shall be done onco a week or once a month must depend on bo many things that each man must adapt his method of cultivation to what he believes his orchard needs. There nro sonic fundamental princi ples only that need to bo understood. There is no one method that Is best for all locations, but what Is best for one orchard would be destructive to another. Take an orchard on the bills whore the soil Is of such texture that it would easily wash away if dis turbed often, and It is evident that cultivation can only ho given at cer tain times of year and that the ground must then be covered with a crop to hold tho soil in place. On the same kind of a hill, however, the soil may be of a clay so firm and retentive that cultivation at any time during tho growing season would not result In the soil washing. The method of cul tivation is a problem that is worth being worked out by every orchardist, but there is littlo advice that will bo of value to him except advice of a general nature. Save Money With Good Plants. The planter should always remem ber that It costs exactly the same In labor to cultivate and care for a good plant as a poor one. In tho buyins of trees, vines and, plant3 generally the comparative cost ehotild cut no figure. One strawberry plant may cost a cent while another ono may cost only one-fourth of a cent. In the light of the production of a good or bad variety how much does a cent count? The same la true in the buying of trees. A good variety should bo scrured, and It Is never necessary to pay a fancy price for any of tho good standard variotlos. Hut frequently poorer varieties, being in larger abundance In the hands f the nurserymen, can bo bought cheap or than the standard variety. The fiuit ir. a single season may bo worth a dol?ar more on tho good tree than on the poor one and that will more ti an equal tha difference in cost. The chief concern of the tree planter should be to get a tree that will In ar an abundance of the right 1.1ml of fruit. Saving a few cents per tree may prove disaftrous In the end. Preparing for the Hot Bed. Every farmer should have a hot lied. Start th.:8 in the full by dU'gl:g a hole three feet deep and six feet Mi'ian' end fi!l with coarm manure.
