The Canadian crop is being shipped in large quantities and exerts a heavy pressure on the ab sorbing power of foreign markets. Under these circumstances one would naturally look for a lower price level, but in spite of the free movement buying by outsiders has been of sufficient strength to give the market a rather stiff undertone. We are looking for, and for some time have expected, that the pressure of new •wheat would cause some decline, and with this idea in view we believe traders should be prepared to take advantage of bulges and hard spots to make sales-for moderate turns. The Canadian wheat crop, while large. Is not so great an item as to dominate the permanent course of prices, but before its influence is spent It will probably prove of enough importance to depress prices in American markets to a point where good purchases may be made for a long pull. Our idea in counseling the sell ing side latelv is based merely on tempo rary conditions. Edwards-Wood Co. (Incorporated)—Dealers In STOCKS CRAIN PROVISIONS Main Office—5th and Robert Sts.—St. Paul.

It has become a practice at many of our poultry shows for the com panies having incubators to sell, to sell the newly-hatched chickens to the visitors at a small price. We no tice that the same thing is being done in some of the large department stores in Chicago. This is almost a cruelty to the chicks, as they general ly die from exposure, except when the weather is very warm. The pur chasers generally know nothing about the care of young chicks and do not realize that they must be kept at a temperature well up in the nineties. The citizens that buy chicks at this 6 have no way of keeping them at such a temperature, even if they knew enough to do so. We hear, however, that in England the prac tice of selling newly-hatched chicks has become extensively established, but there the sellers have regular methods of packing, handling and shipping these chicks. Many of them are sold in large quantities to people that have brooders for receiving them and carrying them through the ten der period. We believe that the busi ness of selling day-old chicks could be made a profitable one, both to the seller and the purchaser, provided it were properly carried on. If these chicks are to be sold to citizens who only want a few of them, it would seem almost necessary that some diminutive brooder should be invent ed in which they could be properly cared for.—Estella Harper, Carroll Co., Ul., in Farmers' Review. The "Value of Fumigation. It used to be supposed that to fumi gate the poultry house by the burning of sulphur would destroy all the in sects in it. For a long time this was practiced, but later it was discovered that the value of sulphur fumigation depended upon the amount of mois ture in the air. Sulphur gas had to combine with moisture to become ef fective in the destruction of insect life. The fumigators found that it was generally necessary to use the stove and heat water upon it to the evaporating point, thus filling the room with steam before the fumiga tion was performed. It was also necessary to have the doors and win dows very tight. Fumigation seems to have fallen into disuse, and we doubt very much if the practice will be extensively revived, as there are many easier ways of getting rid of the insects than by fumigation. Fumi gation can be advocated only in the case of some contagious disease be ing prevalent which may have af fected the parts of the house that cannot be reached by sprays and washes. Rose Combs on Fowls. Nearly all breeds of fowls that have single combs have also varieties of the breed with double combs. Thus there is no difference between the single comb Brown Leghorn and the rose comb Brown Leghorn except the combs. The rose comb was de veloped with the intention of making the same variety better able to stand the cold. The single comb, having a very large surface, easily froze in extremely cold weather. The devel opment of the rose comb brought the parts of the comb of the fowl nearer to the head, and made it easier to keep up the circulation of the blood in the comb. The rose comb, how ever, should be kept of medium size. There is a tendency among some breeders to develop it more than is necessary. The more they develop it, the more they expose it to the cold. They have only to keep on enlarging it to get the effect of the single comb. The closer the rose comb is to the head, the more serviceable is it cold climates. Canada's Export of Poultry Products. Canada has been for a number of years making special efforts to se cure a large share of England's trade in poultry products. The Canadian government has spent a good deal of money in teaching the farmers how to fatten poultry and dress it in the most( approved fashion. Yet the Canadians have not been able to export much in excess of a million dollars worth a year. But the reason has not been that the English did not like Cana dian poultry products. It is that the Canadian people are willing to pay more for the products than the Eng lish are willing to pay. Thus the products are kept at home. In the Northwest territories of Canada there is a rapidly increasing population and that population is consuming more and more of poultry products and is even importing from the United States. It is a good sign when the Canadians can find such a ready mar ket at home. Shipping Eggs. The man that has eggs to ship a long distance must take the utmost care in packing them, and must consign them to .agencies that will take proper care of them. For this reason, express companies have been largely patronized by the producers of eggs because, when con signed to these companies, the eggs receive more attention than when sent by freight. By the latter they would be exposed to rough handling, sometimes to zero weather, and at other times would be placed near stoves or steam pipes, which would be equally detrimental MSCEfcLANS Farms Rupning Down. Any observant man who drives through a long settled farming district cannot fail to note that old farms that were once beautiful in every way are beginning to look desolate and untidy. The writer could name districts in which this is notably the case, and in evefy one of them the reason is that the young folk fail to take a proper interes't in the old homestead and in the best methods of fanning and tidiness. One of them spoken to about the lack of care manifest upon every hand said, "There isn't a dollar for me in mere tidiness. My time is wholly devoted to necessary work, as that means money." This may be true in a sense, but it is wrong in principle, and when the time comes to sell a farm, tidiness counts as also it does when strangers seek to learn the character and business standing of a man. The old settlers of many of the fine farms of the country come from the east or from foreign countries, where tidiness rules in farm management. They were so proud of their newly gained homes that they kept them up in fine style for they had been rent ers before or too poor even to rent a farm in the old country. Here boys and girls grew up and were educated better than their parents and quickly acquired new and expensive ideas and habits. These young folk now run the old farms or have rented them out and gone to work in the cities. The resist is deplorable. The old farms are growing old in every sense of the word. They should be improving in every way, but instead the fences and buildings are going to rack and ruin, the trees require trim ming, the fields have become impov erished. There is, in short, every sign of shiftlessness and slovenliness about the old places and the pioneer owners would be sorry indeed could they see the state of decay into which their old homes have fallen. It is time to renovate these fine old places. There are associations about them that should the former owners. They should be kept up not merely for the sake of the dollar, but for appearances and senti ment, and we contend that a farmer tidy by nature and in practice is suc cessful in farming to advantage and will find profit in all that he does for the beautification as well as enrich ment of the farm. Grass Headlands. Last season we visited a fine farm in one of the great grain raising states and were particularly pleased with the appearance of the fields. Plowing had been carefully done for years, so that the land was level and smooth and around each field ran a headland seeded to grass and just wide enough for a team of horses to turn handily without injuring the standing crop of corn. The fences on this farm were well made and properly kept up, so that the plow could be run close up to each of them if necessary, but this had been done long since, and grass now took the place too often occupied by weeds. Questioned, the farmer gave it as his opinion that the ferass or hay cut on the headlands paid quite as well as the crop that would be otherwise injured by teams and implements, but his chief reason for adopting grass headlands was to keep down weeds and give the farm a fine and neat ap pearance. Every reader of the paper must confess that much corn is tram pled under the horses'# feet when cul tivating and turning at the ends of the fields and that the corn produced on the edges is often thin and weedy. Would it not be better to devote such land to the growing of grass and so render working of the crop easier and at the same time keeping down the weeds and giving the place a tidy ap pearance? Personally we are strongly in favoi of grass headlands. They save time in entering a grain field with the har vester, enable a man to drive or walk around his field on the Sabbath day tour of inspection, make hedge trim ming or fence repairing easier, give a sightly appearance to the fields and a luxuriant look to the growing crops, besides making it an easy matter to run the mower near t}ie fences and so destroy weeds that would otherwise go to seed. We would like to hear from our readers upon this subject and are ready to be converted over again if we have come to a wrong conclusion relative to the advantages of having grass headlands around the fields.—A. S. Alexander in Farmers' Review. Fertilizers in the South. The twelve southern states long ago began to use. fertilizers. Exhaustive cropping systems that have been in vogue in the South for a hundred years have depleted the land of its fertility to such an extent that good returns are insured only by the appli cation of vast quantities of costly com mercial fertilizers. For last year the total number of fertilizer establish ments in the southern states was 205. The total capital invested was in. ex cess of $37,000,000. These factories used last year raw materials to the value of 116,000,000. They turned out a product valued at more than..$24,000 000. The fertilizer tonnage for the south during the last twelve months for which we have reports was 2,441, 887 tons.

Shortly after this, on the advice of a friend, I began to take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People,.two at a dose three times a day. After the second box had been used I was surprised to notice that the inflammation was going down and that the pains which used to cause me so much agony had disappeared.

The bid wood in the Lippincott man sion has been secured by musical in strument makers, who claim that they have found a treasure in that the wood is not only seasoned, but is of a kind that it is almost impossible to I get nowadays. One of the foremost violin' makers of this country made the discovery that the joists in the yellow mansion were of a quality of spruce wood, now extinct, that is of rare quality for the rim and back of violins. He got a monopoly on the old wood, and while the wreckers were tearing down the house he em ployed detectives to watch his prize. O he vi in a so on a the fine quality of the wood, and they endeavored to get some of it, only to learn that their alert competitor had purchased it all.
