8tepmother of Mint Julep,
Romance and poetry have delighted
to weave garlands with which to cele
brate and perpetuate the glory of the
blue grass In old Kentucky, famed for
Its fine horses, beautiful women and
mint
Kentucky has been designated as
the home of the mint Julep, and ,4ts
colonels have become famous all over
the world for the easy and graceful
way In which they drink whisky with
a little dash of sugar and a sprig or
two of mint In order, chiefly to over
come the necessity for a large amount
of water in the beverage. The true
Kentucklan doesn't want his whisky
drowned.
It transpires, however, that the real
home of the mint and the mint Julep
Is right here In Missouri, whose crop
of mint last year amounted to 7,668
' pounds, or enough to make 1,224,820
Juleps. This amount Includes the mar
keted product, only, co account having
been taken of the countless thousands
of Juleps which were compounded dur
ing the year with a base of the undi
luted moonshine whisky that never
paid a cent of tax. St Louis Star.

SHELTER IN THE FARM YARD
Excellent Manner of Stacking Hay Is
Illustrated Also Protects
the Animals.
The illustration shows an excellent
manner of slacking the straw, hay or
coin fodder that it may be fed from
the yard; this not only prevents the
cattle from pulling it down and want
ing same, but provides an excellent
Bhelter for them from the weather,
says the Farm Press.
The uprights or postR are made of
concrete and. so have greater durabili
ty than if constructed of wood; these
are easily molded by building a box
form of the right height and about 15
Shelter for the Farm Yard.
Inches square on the inside if only
four posts are to be use; the concrete
Is tamped inside same and when
cured the frame may be erected upon
them to form the foundation for the
stack. When desired the number of
pouts may be increased and the size
of same decreased; thuB, if bIx poBts
are used they will be amply strong if
made 12 inches square; if eight posts
are used they can be made ten inches
square. The advantage of this shelter
is very apparent to every farmer, as
it Baves a large portion of the straw,
etc., that would be wasted by the
cattle trampling It into the yard. A
manhole can be built through the
center of stack and the straw thrown
down through it in feeding, thus giv
Ing the cattle a sheltered place to
feed away from snow and rain. If
well made, it is not the least un
sightly.
ORGANIC MATTER OF SOILS
Necessary Element Is Secured by
Crop Rotation by Plowing Under
Green Crops and Manuring.
(By D. W. FREAR, Colorado Agricultural
College.)
All cultivated soils and most virgin
soils contain plant and animals' re
mains, called organic matter.
When in tho last stages of decay,
organic matter is called humus. Hu
mus is dark in color and imparts that
color to soil when present in sufficient
quantities.
Organic matter is very light in
weight. When partially decayed, and
especially In the form of humus, It
has the power to absorb and hold
larger quantities of water than even
the finest clays.
Humus Is more plastic (sticky)
than sand, and less plastic than clay.
Consequently it is very valuable ip
binding together sandy soils and loos
ening up clayey soils.
. When organic matter decays, sub
stances called organic acids are pro
duced which act on the soil mineral
matter and help to make it soluble,
so that It Is available to other plants.
The food material which the organic
matter contained is also broken down
to its original form, and much of it
is again built up Into plant tissue.
Organic matter is gotten Into the
soil by crop rotation, by plowing un
der green crops, by manuring and by
raising crops with extensive root sys
tems. When added to soils in arid
regions it should be well rotted. It
is one of the most Important soil con
stituents. The lack of It in soil is
largely the cause of the decreased
yields under the single, continuous
cropping syBtem.
PUTTING IN DRAINAGE TILES
Many Acres of Land Could Be Made
Most Productive if 6ytem of
Underdralnlng Put In.
(By 8. M. MILLER.)
During the last few months there
has been much discussion In the agri
cultural press concerning the best In
vestments for farmers. In my opinion
there is no better and safer Invest
ment for the average farmer than tile
drainage on such parts of the farm as
fail to produce maximum crops during
wet seasons. There are many acres
of naturally fertile soil that are not
paying the owner the cost of working
that could be made the most produc
tive portion of the farm If a good sys
tem of underdalning was put in.
In many cases the first crop will
pay the entire cost of drainage. Of
course many farmers are so situated
that they cannot afford to put in the
complete drainage system at one
time.
My advice to such men Is to have
their plans made at one time and do
a little every year. In this way their
work shall not be haphazard, discon
nected efforts, but shall fit Into a pre
viously worked -out system and form
permanent part of It.
ft
Dries Grain Out Quickly and Permits
It to Remain So All the
Year Around.
' (Tty J. O. STEIN.)
The walls of this corn crib are
built of barrel staves; the roof may
be of lap-siding or any kind of roofing
you want.
For the1 side walls, use two lengths
of staves and run a pole on the mid
dle, as shown in the cut to nail the
staves on, mid run the two rods
through the middle of the crib, one
through poles and one through plates.
WMM
A Movable Corn Crib.
The size of (he crib Is according to
the amount of corn raised.
The walls must slant out a little, as
shown in the cut, as thlB will keep out
the rain better. The floor is tight.
Thl3 kind of a crib Is quite cheap
and may be built of small poles nailed
cIobo together if no barrel staves are
at hand.
Such a crib keeps the corn In good
condition. It dries quickly and keeps
dry all the year around, which Is not
possible for corn kept In a' tight
granary where it molds and spoils at
once.
EASILY-BUILT CLOD CRUSHER
Found Extremely Useful on Soils
With Many Lumps May Also
Be Used as Roller.
Upon heavy soils where there are
many lumps or clods, this will be
found of use, as it is more effective
than the usual roller which presses
the clod into the ground, but does not
crush it, while the drag or boat shown
in the ilustration will work wonders
in a field where there are many clay
Clod Crusher.
lumps or clods. Heavy planks are
nailed together in the manner shown
in drawing with the edges lapped
over each other; and to the top ol
these two strips are bolted to hold it
rigidly together. At the end of these
strips two hooks are placed to which
a chain can be attached for hitching
the team to. The top is further
weighted with rocks if needed. This
aUo does very effective work as a
substitute for a roller upon any Boil.
Handling Manure.
It la too bad that a good many farm
ers waste energy in the handling ol
manure. Why throw It in piles in
the field to be forked again when it
could be spread as quickly from the
wagon? A manure spreader will do
the work quicker and better and make
farm life pleasanter for the boys.
The fruit tree agents will soon be
around. Don't give them all an order.
Don't leave your valuable farm ma
chinery standing unprotected In the
field.
Rabbits sometimes gnaw and dam
age blackberry, raspbsrry and other
bushes.
A good implement house with a
fully equipped repair shop can be
built for $300.
The great virtue of alfalfa is its
ability to increase the nitrogen con
tent of the soil.
All plants which have the ability to
add nitrogen to the soil, like alfalfa,
are called legumes.
The farmer can improve his prop
erty cheaper than a person in almost
any other business.
Drainage lessens evaporation sim
ply by removing the surplus snow and
rain water by filtration.
Put some manure around the goose
berry, currant and raspberry bushes,
if you didn't do it last month.
It is the consensus of opinion that
a small farm well worked Is more
profitable than a large one poorly
worked.
Grass roots must have protection
from the winter frosts if good mead
ows are secured and maintained from
year to year.
A two-foot piece of old steel rail
from the railway track is a very con
venient thing on the farm. It may be
used as a cheap anvil.
Manure Increases the capacity of a
soil to hold water. This -t does by
reason of the large antount of or
ganic matter it contains.
Without doubt one of the pressing
problems with which the average
western farmer has to deal Is that of
securing reliable farm help.
The corn grower should constantly
bear In mind tnat while growing his
corn, he la preparing for future wheat
and other Bmall grain crops.
The farmer who does not pull the
leak plug out of his pump before the
weather becomes cold enough to
freeze it up solid while full fit water,,
may not find It worth while doing so
afterwards.

After a Visit to the Holy Land Even
a 8keptlo Must Be Con
vinced. One thing cannot fait to Impress
every visitor to Dethlehem, and, In
deed, to the Holy Land generally, who
is imbued with true Christian faith
and a proper sense of the sanctity
of the location and of the events that
have transpired there, and that Is the
more than remarkable correspondence
between (lie things and places shown
us today as having been associated
with the life and work of the Saviour
and other events that enter Into the
! structure of our religious' faith and
the descriptions and accounts of them,
as furnished us In the pages of the
Holy Scriptures. They agree with
them in every respect and It is Im
possible, after carefully considering
I and comparing them, to doubt their
I Identity, so exactly are they in accord
with the Bible narrative.
The work in the fields, the arrange
ment of the buildings, the very arti
cles of diet and clothing of ancient
days are plainly recognizable In the
doings and surroundings of today. In
deed, where modern methods have not
become obtrusive the manners and
customs of the people remain much
the same as In the days of the pres
ence on earth of the Saviour. Be
tween the descriptions given In the
Bible of localities, climatic and geo
graphical conditions, distances, etc.,
of these times and those of today
there Is hardly any discrepancy. Even
a skeptic, considering this remarkable
accord of circumstances with the
Biblical narrative, cannot but be con
vinced of its veracity; to the believer
It comes as a wonderful conviction,
a satisfactory corroboration or en
couragement to see things as those
who described them so graphically
saw them so long ago. Columbian
