STOMACH HAS LONG MEMORY But Here Is Proof That There Are Other Things Which Some People Consider of Moment. It's the full dinner plate and the glad hand that makes the assimilation of the foreigner a hasty matter in American, according to Prof. E. A. Steiner. "The stomach has a long memory," eaid he. "Given a condition in which three squares a day are furnished and the assimilation problem is nine-tenths solved." But it isn't all a matter of appetite and supply, Steiner says. The other tenth of the solution lies in America's manners. "1 saw some immigrants On a pier in Italy waiting to take the steamer for this country," said he. "They had been here before. That was evident at a glance. So I asked the man why he was going back? " 'In Plttsaburgh,' said he, 'de boss he knock-a me on da should'.

He wanted to appear big, too, so he chose a low chair which brought his mouth juBt to the top of the table. But he didn't mind this because it was on a line with his plate and he was not so likely to drop anything while eating. He ate ravenously of every thing, paving nothing to say to the guests, m biß mother bad tol<l him to remember th»t good children are seen, not beard. Jrinaliy, after dessert, when there was a luit in the conver sation, he exclaimed: "Say, pop, you can't guess what I've got under the table?" "No, my son." said his father with an Indulgent glance, "what Is it?" "Stomach ache!" shouted Johnny gleefully.

LIFE'S ROAD Smoothed by Change of Food, Worry Is a big load to carry and an unnecessary one. When accompanied by Indigestion it certainly Is cause for the blues. But the whole trouble may be easily thrown off and life's road be made easy and comfortable by proper eating and the cultivation of good cheer. Read what a Troy woman says; "Two years ago I made the acquaint ance of Grape-Nuts and have used the food once a day and sometimes twice, ever since. "At the time I began to use it life was a burden. I was for years afflict ed with bilious sick hesdache, caused by indigestion, and nothing seemed to relieve me. "The trouble became so severe I had to leave my work for days at a time. x "My nerves were ln such a state I rould*not sleep and the doctor sold I was on the verge of nervous prostra tion. I saw an adv. concerning Grape Nuts and bought a package for trial. "What Grupe-Nut# has done for me is certainly marvelous.

The folds of drapery foHow the lines of the frame, sweeping upward at the left. There Is very little regu larity In these folds. Two about the coronet are fairly even, but otherwise they are freely draped, but follow the lines of the shape closely, at that. The turban is finished with two quills in shades of amethyst.

A splendid way to make silk stockings last longer, to really wear to a frazzle, as college girls say, is to wear under them a pair of lisle stockings or an old pair of Bilk stockings. The heels and toes of the under pair may be cut out, being careful, however, not to cut beyond the toe of the slipper, or If one is rath er hard on stockings these may be left In and will act In the nature of a toe guard. Very thin and inexpensive silk hose can by this means be made to looii like heavy expensive ones. It Is also very much warmer for the winter weather and If worn when dancing will savs many a young girl a blush of shams over the condition of her silk hose at the end of the evening. The girl with a very small Income raised high at the left side by an ex tension of the shape over which the silk is draped. Little turbans of this kind are close fitting and very becom ing. This particular style is suited to youthful wearers, while the longer shapes, with a less pronounced tilt In the pose are liked for matrons. There are so many turbans of silk, made in so many ways, that the most conservative as well as the most dar ing models are to be found among them. For trimming, little nosegays of small flowers, or ornaments of Jet or bows of velvet or of ribbon, seem most appropriate. Jet, with silk, adds much to the brilliance of these hats, and small, gay flowers or fruits give them the requisite touch of color. Cleverness In the management of drapery Is the characteristic virtue of hatB of silk for earliest wear. It Is not as easy as It lookB, by any means, to drape a shape without getting clumsy effects.

The general farmer, and ne is the one for whose eye this Is written, will make arrangements early for the several crops he hopes to grow In the coming season. While he may not be able to settle all the details of the work that Is be fore him he can in a general way have his schedule all laid out, so that as the time comes for actual operations In any particular line he may be able to take advantage of every favorable wind and tide that will sweep him along toward success. No man that I know of Is more at sea than the farmer who has no plans laid out before hand, but goes on in a haphazard fashion from day to day. The general farmer will need some crops in almost all the different fields of agriculture. That is, he should have some wheat, some corn, some oats, some potatoes. In selecting the fields that shall be devoted to these several crops, he must be guided by the conditions as he finds them when looking out over bis farm. Tajce the corn land, for example. This Is a crop that needs good strong land. Many of us are In the habit of either keeping our lands In grass un til there Is not enough of growing in them to make a bird's nest of, or else we go on growing corn on the same piece of land year after year, until we have practically exhausted the fertil ity of the soil. Both these ways are demoralizing. Rotation crops is a thing we need to study more than we do. Therefore, it It is best to plow the meadow land for corn before the grass is all run out on It. Leave something for the crop to feed upon. If the soil has been de pleted by previous crops, supply as much homegrown fertility as possible. Wherever we can it Is best not to grow corn on the same field more than one year In succession. The same may be said of almost every crop. LaBt year's corn or wheat ground may be devoted to oats this year. By looking ahead we may have in our mind's eye just the fields to be given to this excellent crop. The' time is coming' when we will have to pay more attention to the oat crop than we have in the past. No cereal adopt ed to the soil of this country has a higher feeding value for man and beast than oats. In planning for this splendid crop, 'lien, we will give plenty .of space to ts cultivation. We may be liberal with the use of fertilizer, either na tive or, commercial, and if we have not already prepared the earth for its growing. We may take advantage of the first warm days to do the plowing. Here let us not make the mistake of being in too great baste. Land should be well dried out before plowing. Nothing will more permanently Injure some kinds of soli than plowing when wet. The potato crop may also be set apart, just as the corn and oats ground should. For this crop a good rich dry soil la needed. The best potatoes I have ever saw grown on a piece of old pasture that had not been plowed for many years. As the general farmer will keep more or less stock, it is right to have plans for the coming year all laid out In advance. Cows may be added to ihe herd for dairy purpose in the spring of the year to better advantage than any other time, as most farmers make a practice of reducing their stock then, if at all. And then, this Is just the time to get the herd in good shape for the work of the com ing Beason. Work done now will last all the year around. By getting out the barnyard manure early we may anticipate other work. Soon the real work of the season will be upon us. but by planning a good way ahead we may be ready for the planting and sewing when the time comes. The best practice Is not to scatter barnyard manure in winter on fields hat are sidling. Better wait than to Feed Corn While Warm. Never feed corn In winter without warming It. For laying bens it ts bet ter to warm all feed, but any grain as cold as corn Is not fit to be swal lowed by any fowl until the chill la removed. One Thing to Avoid. Don't get to hankering for more lban y° u ok" care of weü. ' r °° • Mte of even the beat meat m " kes hard chewing and even harder swallowing. lose a good share of the goodness of the manure. By feeding cows well in winter, by currying them and otherwise caring for them properly, they may be brought through in prime condition, and no man need expect anything like success if he does not get his cows up to that condition. If turned out skin poor, they will require several weeks, and perhaps months, to put on the necessary fat and strength to enable them to give much In the way of profit to the man who owns them. For the coming, hay crop every plan may now be made. The machines may be overhauled and broken or de fective parts may be replaced; the carriers and other tools for loading and unloading may be put in shape for work; hay racks may be made or repaired; barns may be built early or improved where that is necessary. The fields to be devoted to wheat next fall may be located way ahead. Seed grains of all kinds and grass seeds should always be procure^ months ahead and stored in a tight place where rats and mice will not disturb them. Timothy and clover seed may al most always be had at better ad vantage than by waiting until the last moment and then rushing off to town to purchase at any rate which may be demanded. Mired bblp may be engaged now If any change is to be made In the working force of the farm. Many men make their selection months ahead nowadays. This is often wise. Get a good man whenever you can. Keep him as long as possible. And I am coming to believe that one of the best ways of solving the labor question on the farm Is to build houses for the hired man and their wives to live in. This Is more like home, both to the man who hires and the hired man. And, finally, it Is wise to make a working sketch of the farm as plot ted out beforehand. We can all make a little map of the farm of sufficient clearness so that we can tell what is meant when the lines and figures-get cold. A brief draft of what we hope to do In the coming months may be pinned to the map and laid away with It In the desk, to be referred to as slon demands. Does all this look like business? True, fellow farmers, it does. But business is what we all need to get down to. We will never be really suc cessful unless we do. occa GOOD TIME FOR MAKING CRATES Convenient Receptacles for Fruit and Other Farm Products are Easily Made. (By S. B. HARTMAN.) Winter days make a good time to nail up crates, whether for fruit farm use. Where elm or other good crate timber Is plenty and a mill to cut It Into crate material handy the timber can be got out at trifling cost and nailed up when other work Is not pressing. I know of one man who put In his spare time making crates of common lath and (2x4) hardwood. The latter was cut into triangular pieces with a rip saw for corners and the lath nailed to them quite closely together. This makes a light but not very durable crate. Store box material, especially orange or lemon boxes, can be used for crates. By cutting handholes in the ends of the orange boxes and nailing the slates more firmly, they will make fairly good crates just as they are: or the slats may be knocked off, the mid dle partion taken out and the slats sawed to proper length and renailed to ends, making a fairly good crate. If zinc or tin strips be nailed over the ends of slats to prevent nails drawing out, a good light crate will be made at a trifling cost or Can Ralae Hoga Cheaply. The dairy farmer can raise hogs cheaper than anyone else and natural ly more important than the cost of feed this makes a better profit tor him from this one line. Salt for Sheep.

WAS EQUAL TO THE OCCA8ION. 8ection Bo** Succeeded In Spiking Superior's Spike Yam. One of the flrBt orders Issued by E. S. Calvin when he assumed the reins as general manager of the Ore gon Short Une was that economy must be practiced In all departments. For several years the bill for spikes on the Oregon Short Line has barn about the same, and one of the mat ters to which he had reference was the use of spikes by section men. Mr. Calvin determined to cut down the spike bill on the Oregod Shore Line. When the section men received the ortiei there was much, comment among the "paddies" as to whether the cost of spikes had not been kept as low as possible. About two weeks after the order was promulgated Mr. Cal vin went to Montpelier, Ida., and while walking around the yards found a new spike loose between the rails. Aiming to have some fun at the expense of the Irish section boss he said: "Pat, I found this spike lying in the yards. It is a new spike, too." "Thank you awfully much, Mr. Cal vin," said the section boss. "I've had my gang of eight men lookin' for that spike for two days.
