While the American court*
are piling up an amazing
volume of divorce statistics,
how interesting it would be
if there were some records
to show the pressure which
broke the first strand of the
marriage tie in each installée. Unquestionably, in most cases respect
disappeared before love's reien was endangered. The average love will not
stand unless supported by respect. If this be true, it follows that each
of the women who lost lovt fitst lost respect, even though it may have
seemed to every one except the husband that she was entitled to his com
plete respect.
What side of the woman does the husband see that is hidden from
the world? I can tell you. He secs the side that does not care about
appearances. He sees the s de that is not expecting company and is not
trying to make an impression. He sees the negligee side, and it is a strong
love that will survive some women's negligee.
No matter how sweet hjer character and disposition, what woman can
command her husband's respect when she appear^ before him in "lazy"
attire. Helen in a soiled kimono would have silÆced forever the muses
that sang her praise; Cleopatra in a bathrobe and disheveled hair would
have excited no admiration. Venus might have been presentable without
corsets, but there are»* very few present-day women who can take that
Cj Shabby Clothes Cause
of Many Divorce Suits
So the first assault upon love by the woman is, many times, just this:
She dresses for outsiders and counts her husband an insider. Instead of
her husband being preferred company, he is common company. Husband,
in turn, awakens to the fact that his wife is not the dainty, lovely creature
he had pictures in his mind. He is obliged to make a new mental pic
ture, and that new one is not nearly so favorable or
flattering as the old. When he thinks of her it is
quite possible that the kimono-bathrobe-frowsy-sham
bling-slipper picture will .be photographed in his
mind, and he is not to be blamed if he tries to forget
her picture. %
No matter what her character may be, she has
earned loss of respect, and jthe seriousness of that loss
only depends upon her husband's sensitiveness. If
he has an eye for the beautiful and harmonious she
has pained him irreparably. If he is not offended by
the sight of a negligent woman, particularly when that
woman is his wife,- then h<: did not have a great deal
of respect for women to begin with.
Women who think that home appearances do not
count are walking in the direction of the divorce court.

and it is not for me to sky that the man is always

my seat if I am fortunate enough to get one myself. Usually when I get
seated in a street car in which some people must stand I look about to
see if I can see any one whom I think would be worthier or who needs the
seat more than I do myselt. If, in my estimation, I see such a person, man
dr woman, then and only then is he or she given my seat, but not beenuse
she may be a woman.
If all were on an equal footing it would be fine indeed never to see a
woman stand in a street Car or train, and no doubt that would be made
a rigid rule as a mark of j respect to the mothers of the race, but as long
as the present order of things endures the following of such a rule depends
entirely on circumstances.

so soon shall we force such works off the market.
The publisher who brings forth a book that can find no resting place

Important Item of Expense Is Saved if Land Is New and Rich,
Thereby Saving Cost of Fertilization—More Money is Needed
in Irrigation Sections of West Than Elsewhere.

1 I
The first home of a young Chicago mechanic who took hie bride to a west
ern new farm waa an abandoned freight car. Fifty dollars made It not
only habitable but comfortable and this plucky young couple lived In It
for two yeare white getting a start. The third year they bdfllt a house
that cost $1,000, much of the work being done by their own hands.
The farmer whose,family is able to
do all the labor on the farm can begin
with less capital than the individual
No man who Is without experience
as a fr.rmer could possibly make a
success of farming as a business from
the beginning; but If a man is a stu
dent and is willing to undergo some
privation at the beginning there is a
chance for him to succeed if he h'as
the necessary capital.
Much will depend upon the amount
of risk the farmer is willing to take.
Generally speaking, where land prices
are normal, a full equipment Just
about equals the full value of the
land. One can usually get hold of a
piece of land by paying about one
fourth of the purchase price in cash
and giving his notes for the balance
on the land for security. Hence,
speaking In a general way, the amount
of capital required as a minimum for
a fully equipped farm would be about
one and a fourth times the cost price
of the land. ThlB would Involve going
In debt an atnount equal to about
three-fourths the cost of the land. In
these figures I am assuming that land
for trucking and fruit growing will
cost $100 an acre, land for dairying
$50, and for hay growing $20 per acre.
The differences in the price of land
here assumed for the different types
of farming will be considered In the
article dealing with the best location
for the beginner.
In the Irrigated regions of the west,
generally speaking, more capital is re
quired for beginning than elsewhere
on account of the high cost of the
land, but where (there is plenty of
irrigation water available the yields
to be obtained can generally be made
to compensate for the higher land
must hire a large part of his
labor. Again, something depends up
on the character of the land Itself. If
the soli Is new and rich there will
be little or no expense for fertilization
at the beginning, and an Important
Item of expense is thus saved; but if
the land has been farmed for many
years and is In a condition that re
quires immediate fertilization In order
to Becure profitable yields, consider
able investment must be made In fer
tilizers or manure before crops can
be obtained. Some men have started In
to farming with practically no japitgl.
Frequent Shallow Cultivation
Should Be Given in Early
Part of Season.
Currants should be propagated by
division of the plant Where only. •
few bushes are wanted they may be
obtained by separating rooted canes
from the mother-plant but In nurs
ery-culture plants are propagated by
cuttings in the fall. They are made
about 8 Inches long and may be set
out in rows at once, or tied up in bun
dles and stored in a pit over winter.
Make the pit in well-drained soil, with
the butt ends up, and covered about 6
Inches deep with earth. Set out in
the spring as early as the ground can
be worked,
feet apart, and the plants 4 feet dis
tant in the rows. Frequent shallow
culture should be gi"en during the
early part of the season. Your state
experiment station at Amherst, Mass.,
will, no doubt, be pleased to send
you a bulletin showing their reports
on growing currants and gooseberries
In your section of the country, if you
write and ask for it.
The rows should be 6
Buying More Land
Farmers should not buy more land
tntil that which they already have Is
producing to its maximum capacity.
Quality of Butter.
Fresh cream added to the batch
soon to be churned will not add any
thing to the quality ot the butter. All
of the cream will be better for ripen
ing at least twenty-four hours.
Expect Better Riga.
If boar and sow are In a strong,
thrifty condition we have a right to
expect more and better pigs.
Reduce Feed Bills.
Scraps from the table will help to
reduce the feed bills
but this Is a dangerous thing to do.
Others will require the full amount
necessary to buy the land and .to
properly equip and stock it and two
or three years' living expenses In
The largest item of capital la, of
course, the land itself. A few years
ago land could be obtained by home
stead at very little expense. It must
now be purchased. There are a few
localities In the United States, mostly
ii ij the south, where farm land can
be purchased for $10 to $20 per acre.
Usually, however, this land is held In
large tracts, which when cut up into
small tracts sells readily at $40 to
$50 per acre. Prices range all the
way from those above mentioned to
$3,000 an acre for some of the best
fruit farmB well set to bearing trees
in some of the Irrigated regions of the
west. Generally speaking, the Bmall
farm should be near a city, and tor
that reason will usually consist of high
priced land.
In farming more than any other
business the amount of capital re
quired at the start depends upon the
degree to which the individual is cap
able of leading the strenuous life.
The city family who moVes to the
country with small capital usually be
comes very much discouraged before
success rewards their efforts, because
to succeed under such conditions re
quires hard living.
In the matter of the dwelling house
one may be content to camp for a
year or two in a shack costing not
over $150. A fairly good house for
a small family on the farm can be
built at a cost of from $500 to $1,000. de
pending on the size of the family and
the cost of materials. This assumes,
however, that the farmer himself does
the hauling and a good part of the
carpenter work. Where the farmer
can do all the work himself the mater
ials for a very good house need not
cost over $500.
It is easily seen that with the price
of land varying as it does it Is not
possible to state a definite sum as
the safe limit of capital with which
a family may begin upon the farm, but
in the next article some details will
be given which ought to enable the
individual to determine the amount
of capital with which he can safely
begin the business.
Makes One of Best Foods for the
Little Chicks and for the
Laying Hens.
Skim milk is one of the very beet
feeds for both young chickens ancf lay
ing hens. The casein, or curdy part ol
the milk, largely supplies the protein
necessary for laying hens, while for
fattening fowls there is nothing
perior to milk for making white, juicy,
delicate flesh. The milk may be fed
either sweet or sour and may be given
as a drink or mixed with wheat bran
and oatmeal, or both.
Sour skim milk, or buttermilk, fed
to hens confined in yard or small
range, keeps them in health. The acid
of the milk supplies the lack of vege

Loss by Bugs.
As nearly as can be figured out tbe
chinch bug causes a loss to the farm
ers of the United States $60,000.000
a year, and the Hessian fly about half
as much.
Manuring the Orchard.
In manuring the orchard, the prop
er place to put the manure Is around
the spread of the branches, not
around the trunk.
Feeds for Calf.
Giving the daily ration of milk in
three feeds is better for the new calf
than the same amount in two feeds
