He comes from the very best stock?the very sweetest, ripest, mellowest: Virginia and Carolina tobacco, and we will raise him right in one of the whitest, cleanest, health? iest homes on earth." Even then I was glad alt over to hear his words. It is a great thing to have real breeding behind you, to know who your folks are. It starts a fellow right. We Folks of the South KNOW good blood.

These seeds are produrrd In California, loo, hut It Is n curious fact that the remarkable vital Ity t-hown by California seels Is con? sidered by many growora to l>e a dls advantage, especially In the ease of root crups. for the tops crow with great luxuriance at the expense of Un? roots.

Insulation of Hives I? Advantageous For the Colonies. Il'reparo.l by l'riltr.1 Btatca aapartiriaht M agriculture.] That beekeepers need not fear any detrimental results from abundant In? sulation of their hives at any season of the year Is shown by recent bxpcrl moiit.s of the bureau of entomology of the t'nlted States department of agrl culture. To test the theory of miiuy beekeepers thnt excessive insulation I? even more detrimental In winter than insufficient Insulation u colony was packed In the fall of 11)15 with sixteen lie-lies of sawdust oh all sides, top am) bottom. Temperature records were made at frequent Intervals every day throughout tho winter anil spring The colony remained In excellent cow dltlon In every respect through all the winter, being little affected by high winds, mid after brood rearing began It built lip with gTcaf rapidity. Then, to continue observations on tho effect of Insulation on tho building up of tho colony, tho packing was allowed to remain all summer. Except for the Impossibility of manipulating the rob ony It remained In excellent condition. It seems ch ar, therefore, that beokcop ers need not fear any detrimental re? sults from abundant Insulation at any Benson of the year. The.experiments showed that failure to Insulate the bottom of the hive largely on'.sot.s the value of Insulation aroiiud tho lilVe. The experiments also Indicated that 111 insulating hives II Is of small Importance what material Is used. Shavings, sawdust, leaves ami chair, some of tho commonest sub stances used, were nil found satlsfnc tory. Temporary Repair For Pipo Loak.

This Is of? ten difficult, as a plumber's services uro nut always quickly available. Un der such circumstances tho device shuwu hi the sketch was used to stop leak until a permanent repair was made. A piece of sheet rubber wait placed over tho leak, and n wooden block wus tilted over It, the Inner sur fnro being curved to tit the pipe. The block nnd rubber packing \v,.rc clamp ed against the pipe by meant of a stick notched to tit against the pipe and held by a twisted wire, a block be lng DtCd to wedge the packing mid cover block firmly Into place.
