She was said to have had a "dis .ppointment." Amos Hathaway had vanted her and she had loved him, hut they must wait until he could nake a little home for her, and he ent all his energy to that end. It was hard toil, digging and delving on L rocky New England farm. The lawn, with its flush of amber and pearl, meant potatoes to be dug, and the glory of the sunset told of cows to be milked. But at last Amos had enough for their simple wants. "Beulah, dear girl," he said, "the little home is Tll ready." "I know, Amos, but I can't come I cannot. I ought not to leave father and mother." "You are crazy, Beulah! I have wanted you for six years and lived and worked in the hope of it. Is this what has made you look and act so strangely?" "Yes, you thought it was because of sister Emily, but that was not all. I knew when she died there would be no one left but me to take care of father and mothe:. I've tried so many times to tell you, but I never could I cannot leave them." "Then, you don't really love me, Benlah!" It was a storm of passion and the turning back of the hopes of years, and Amos, in the bitterness of his soul, when all his pleading proved in vain, told her to go her way and he would go his-he never would, never ask her to come to him again. And away the went to the mining region of the northwest to make his fortune. .Beulah used to think of him winter ntights when the wind shrieked in the chimney and rocked the old house. She had given the most devoted care to her father and mother to the end of their lives, and now she was alone.

Every farmer should attend the t fairs and poultry shows, and should 5 also exhibit, as any interest taken in fairs leads to improvement of the flocks. Many farmers are afraid to 3 exhibit, not knowing how to prepare the fowls. It may require work for a while to get the fowls in proper con dition, but the pleasure of winning will be ample compensation, although the I priz? money is also an inducement. To c I get ready for an exhibition begin about six weeks ahead with selected merybers of the flock, and twice a 1 week oil the legs. combs. wattles and beaks, using a mixture of 'a gill of lard oil and a teaspoonful of crude petroleum. This will clean the legs. Two weeks before the time for ex hibiting feed sunflower seed three A times a week. Wash the combs, wat tles, legs and beaks once a week and sponge the combs and wattles with a mixture of one part of alcohol to two parts of water. Two days be fore shipping the birds make a soap- h suds from castile soap, and have the ft suds strong and lathery. Take the tt tub and birds into a room heated to hi one hundred and five degrees, wash q; the birds thoroughly (do not be afraid st to rub) and rinse them in another tub- t ful of clean, warm water. Put the birds fr in a very warm room, and as they in will puff up their feathers, on account bi of the heat, each feather will dry sc separately and fall into its place. If ot this is not done the feathers will th stick together. Now turn them into nr a cooler room so as to avoid sudde ' ve changes. Before they start, rub comb, or wattles and legs with glycerine, which fe will protect against frost. At the pu show wipe off the glycerine, and th sponge the comb and wattles with let alcohol. frl thl The past season has been another bu of the profitable small fruit seasons th when almost everything that had rea- un sonable care has yielded a good re- pu turn. Some five or six years ago 'we O had such a succession of drouthy wi years that it seemed as it it was a it bad business if undertaken without some possibility of irrigation. We I may have such seasons again and fru probably will, but we have much to by encourage us in improved, varieties sty and methods and we are now inclined slo to think that in good soils the grow- to. lag of small fruit may be oihe of the of best branches of fruit industry that thi can be undertaken in the west. an ally HARVESTING ONIONS. inr The onion <'Irep must have intelli A' ,.; gent care at harvest time if they are ih; nded for winter storage.

Bear in mind all the time that the young calf is not very different ed fromn what we were at an early period are in our history, and we do not know em but what it may be truthfully said of car some of use that this continues to be fall our normal condition. Gently place tha the calf's nose into the milk, which jus nmust always be blood heat. Put a very small amount of milk in the pail or receptacle In which your calf is fed, one half inch is sufficient, and I1 push the little bovine's nose down onto to the bottom of the pail. It will soon aftt learn that you are performing a thol friendly act, and will get a taste of sist the milk and begin to suck, sip and lag. bunt the bottom of the pall. Add to ingr the milk and continue the good work the until the calf gets enough. Do not sud put in enough to cover the nostrils. The One or two such lessons and the calf as will rapidly take care of all the milk not it should have. seqt ------- will Not a pound of dried or canned the fruit should enter the farmer's home first by way of the grocery counter.

FOWL? i e are often asked which we con , sider the best general purpose fowl. I can say to the person that wants k to keep one variety that the Barred y and White Rocks and the White and d Silver Laced Wyandottes are in my estimation ahead of all other varieties s as general purpose fowls. Of course n there are many other breeds, but the above named varieties are hard to beat, especially when they have been Sbred in line for laying by selecting only known good layers each year and C breeding these "in line" year after Syear we can be sure at least of har Sing a strain of persistent layers. A general purpose fowl must have a plump carcass when dressed; a qual eity and quantity of meat that will meet the demands of the market, and to be profitable they must be of a heavy laying strain, quick to mature and easy to raise. You should pal particular attention to selecting and breeding for the qualities necessary to produce the most prolific layers, as well as those noted for their vigor, hardiness andi standard markings. A rieadler asks: Can pitnes be plaft" ed in the fall? They cannot. There are none of the coniferous trees which embrace the pine, spruce, etc., that can be planted with success in the fall. Experience has demonstrated that spring is the best timie for this, just as the growth starts. CARE OF MARE AND FOAL It is quite common for the farm~er to turn his work horses to pasture after the harvest is over, with the thought that the work horse can suik sist on grass alone if he is not work" Ing. This will do fairly well for Std ings or mares without colts, prOVld the pasture is good, but for 385 suckling colts it is a very bad policY" The mare should have her oats as she did' when working. If she dol not she will run down In flesh and ecc sequently in the flow of milk. 1' will be detrimental to the growth 4 the colt. The way a colt Is fed i first year of its life determines I8 a great degree his future value. - I computed that in a general way, additional 10 pounds added to a horse's weight after he passes 1, potinds adds $25 to his value. i anything that has a tendency to the colt should be avoided.
