Arc Women Abused by Men?
It seems to be :i fact that a majority
ol" women, married or single, believe
they are abused by the men just be
cause the latter happen to have control
of business affairs, run politics and do
the eourtiag.
The woman of marriageable age who
is still living at home feels that men are
Rot doing right by her. She naturally
wants to marry, have a big wedding,
go on a totir of the Bastern States or
Western, as the ease may be. Bui si
has to go on Waiting because no man
asks her to join him In these festivities.
For this reason she feels that she is an
abused creature.
The old maid who settles down to
earn her own living just hates the men,
beta PUS they allow her to wear her
iiußfr-naii off scratching for bread.
The sight of a mafl walking comforta
bly along the street, or driving, or even
lounging around some resort, causes
her Indignation to rise to the top notch.
Why do they thus continue to abuse
The shop girl wonders why the boys
do not gather round her and ask her to
choose one of them to be her defender
and supporter. She is quite certain
that she should not be permitted to live
by the sweat of her brow, and the
whole of the blame is placed on the
young men who are earning money
enough for two and spending it for
their own comfort.
Married women are the loudest com
plalners and their complaints are gen
erally against their husbands. It is all
right daring the honeymoon, but when
that is over and they turn to face the
realities of life they feel that they are
being abused. Her household duties
are heavier than when she was at home,
her husband Is not the singing lover
who tilled her heart with joy and her
days are not as thickly Interspersed
with picnics as when she was a girl.
As she thinks over this she becomes
more and more deeply convinced that
she is a much-abused woman: that hus
bands are not half as nice as beaux and
is quite certain that she never would
have married had it not been for the
A Fault in Piano I'lnyiiii.
A well-known paino teacher says that
( ne of the most common faults In piano
playing is the practice of playing the
two hands out of time with each other.
Nine players out of ten iermit the left
hand to lead the right, when the two
should strike the keys simultaneously.
It is a sort of swagger that pr duces a
very inartistic effect, of course there
are rare discs where this dilatoriness of
the right hand may be legitimate, but
it should be remembered that in gener
al it is reprehensibe and should be
carefully avoided. If the composer In
dicates the simultaneous performance
Of the notes belonging to the two hands,
1 v not the slightest discrepancy be
manifest. To play the two hands out
of time with each other is to be not
only inaccurate, but to appear affected.
Shallow players resort to such devices
to cover up the lack of ability to play
with expression. It takes the place of
shading and phrasing with the super
ficial. M'ilTV Are Small n-itl Dainty.

The value of a mulch Is only partially
appreciated by Americans, and there is
a wide held for development in using
mulches of all kinds. We obtain our
ideas of mulches from the prairies and
forests, Where nature ferne; her own
mulch. The decaying leaves and stems
soon form a mars on the surface, which
prevents the sail from 1- sing much of
its moisture. This Ii:!' tr. ilil ftli'1 Sirv

it will be found around v
forest, and around the r
crasses on every mead v. In irn i
inj: nature, as she works In the fleld and
forest, we adopted the artiAcial mulch
around our fruit trees, and found that
it worked to their advantage, a mulch
besides retaining the moisture in the
soil, also secures a mere uniform tem
perature and add:: considerable plant
food to it. The nature of the mulch Is
an important part of the work. Plat
stones may be used around trees, form
ing a permanent mulch, but their ac
tion is merely mechanical. It retains
the moisture and temperature of the
soil, but it adds nothing to it. Sawdust
it but a little better, but straw and new
mown lawn grass form rich mulch S
that add plant food to the soil.
The next change v. hich takes place in
the soil when a covering is placed over
the surface is not generally understock
Some chemical change takes place, and
the soil is enriched for a time. In some
of th.e gardens of France the benefits
derived from shading a portion of the
soil is understood and carried out suc
cessfully. Tiles cover the strawberry
beds, with holes made through thn
here and there for the vines to grow
cut of. Flower gardens are like wis
covered with tiles or cement, leaving
no part of the soli exposed except where
the plants come through. Expert hor
ticulturists there find this method of
groat advantage. In a less expensive
way parchment paper can be used for
covering garden soil. Brown paper
dipped in sulphuric acid should be used
for this purpose, as it Is then made
tough and waterproof. In times of
drought this mulch acts splendidly. It
retains the water, accelerates th
growth of the plants and keeps down
the weeds. More experiment with
mulches will in time make gardening
much easier and more profitable. Tbo
parchment paper mulch, however, for
small places is the simplest, cheapest,
ami most effectual that has yet been ex
perimented with. Grange Hume.,.
To preserve celery during tte winter
season is no easy task, and many good
practica men fail In the task. For one
or two seasons we tried lifting the
heads and planting them in cold frames
or storing in cellars. When placed in
eellars the celery kept fairly well, but
became tough, stringy and of very poor,
flavor, owing in a large measure, no
doubt, to the lack of moisture at the
root. In frames we usually lost a large
proportion of roots from rot. For the
past year or two we have succeeded in
keeping celery in g ood condition until

Thinning Fruit
Mr. Edward W. Lincoln, i-i bis report
to the Worcester County (Mass.) Horti
cultural Society, states that from prac

do not bear In succ tsive years is chief
ly from the fad thai they have been
allowed to ovcrb itr the previous year,

only does this pra :i ?e tend togive reg

quality of the fruii is much enhanced
by this practice. He thinks .here is no
more reason why fruit growers should
not systematically thin out the too
abundant crops, than there is for not
hoeing out superabundant coi a and po

Management of Barn Yard Manure.
Farmers' Bulletin No. 21, issued by
the United States Department of Agri
culture is a compact little monograph
ou the value and the proper manage
ment of barn yard manure. If the
fertilizing constituents of use manure
produced by ail the farm animals of
the United States are estimated at
tin lr market value the total amount
foots up to the enormous sum of more
than $2,000,000 in a year. This esti
mate tiers not mean that the manure
produced by our farm animals is actu
ally worth that amount of money to the
fanners, for much of it Is actually
thrown away and much of it is oare-
h-ssiy applied, it means, however,

almost ss Important as its actual fer
tilizing value. Prof. Roberts, of Cor
nel University, thinks that $290 is a
conservative estimate of the value of
the manure produced during seven win-
lei months on a small farm which car
ries four horse-, twenty COWS, fifty
sheep and tea pigs. At least one-third
of this is lost, which would mean for
the whole country a waste of nearly
$700,000,000. This little pamphlet of
thirty -odd paces gives plain directions
for protecting this valuable product
from loss by fermentation or by the
leaching out of its soluble constituents.
It also explains the rational methods of
preserving and applying manure.
Honey and Its Market.
It lias been suggested that, unless a
C"-d price be ashed, it will not be se
cured. And there is more truth than
poetry in that hint, though, if the price
asked be too high there will also be
fewer sales and consequently less
money obtained, but more honey left
on the producer's hands. It seems to
me that comb honey, in most home
markets, should bring not less than 20
cents per single section, or six sections
for $1. Extracted honey should retail,
per single pound, at 15 cents, or eight
pounds for $1. These prices certainly
are not hich, and yet probably large
enough to sufficiently reward any rea
sonable producer in a fair honey sea
son. There is much education In this mat
ter of the price of honey, as well as to
Its constant use in the family. By start
ing out rightly a better price can be se
cured and maintained, and also more
sales be made; while if there is a wrong
beginning it will be well nigh impossi
ble to correct it later on. By all means

Bcgnlating Cellar Temperature,
As soon as cold weather comes an ef-

cold air into the cellar, especially if it
is used for the storing of fruits and veg

wood or coal to keep the living rooms
above at proper warmth, but the cellar
kept between 35 to 40 degrees will save
