,Corn boomin', the price of wheat way above the century mark and more good news pour
ing in. Think of the fun he'll have spending this wealth improving the "place" that made
such rich returns. Makes us feel good, too, to know we'll share in his prosperity by selling
him a Cutting Box, Pump, an Ax, some Nails and a roll or so of American Field Fence.

No eort of bird, beaet or creeping thing
will touch a castor oil plant. It eeema to
be a rank poison to all the animal world.
Even the goat will starve before biting off
a leaf and a horee will eniff at it and turn
up its upper lip as though it had the most
unpleasant odor on the face of the earth.
Army worm and the locust will paE6 it by,
tho' they may eat every other green thing
in tight, and there is no other surer way
to drive moles away from the lawn than
to plant a few castor beans here and there,
Even the tobacco worm will refuse to be
fed on its leaves. There is hardly an-,
other instance in natural history of a
plant being so universally detested by
the animal world.
