It does not matter to what we turn for immediate relief fromn real or apparent ills. real and iast ing help must come from well ii rected efforts on the part of the farmer himself. The building up of the homestead may be the work of years. but it is an effort wrci'th the making. The soil of the homestead is the farmer's factory. The preparation of the soil. whether it be for cereals or rI'ot=. should be on a basis that shounl make each crop conduce to the welfare of the other. IWhen the fields are in pa:ture,the soil should be in such a condition that they will yield on that liberal basis on which Western fields would be expected to yield. The question of diversity hinges on the farmer's knowledge of what he is well qualified to cultivate and handle to an advantage. Uni versal geniuses are somewhat I scarce. and so are all-round farm ers, yet there are more of them that could make a success of a . specialty, yet the diversity sug gested would seem to aid special! ties rather than hamper general farming operations. If, then, we take the whole ram ifications of farm life into consid eration, it is asking too much of our readers to intelligently con sider what might be done under the system suggested. We do not advise a wholesale change-just enough to make the change inter esting. Vhen at it. make it of a nature that will bring in some ready money to pay grocery bills. ** Covington Hawkeye: He told his son to milk the cows, feed the horses, slop the pigs, hunt the eggs, feed the calves, catch the colt and put him in the stable. cut plenty of wood. split the kindlingo, stir the milk, fut fresh water in the creamery after suppcr, and to be sure to study his lessons before he went to bed. Then he hurried off to the c:lub to take a leading part in the question, "'How to keep boys on the farm." ** The following paragraph, are taken from the Texas Farm and Ranch: Now that labor-saving imple ments are in such common use, it is no wonder the expectation of life of the farmer is increasing.

The Cockney Teacher. iWhen a c )ckney immigrates to America antit get. a job at teach ing school. tlhen his troubles be gin. There was one of the gen ius tried near (iambicr. 0.. so the story runn.. hciher it be true or not. "Arry Hadams, you spell saloon." he dictated to the spelling class. "'i don't know how," said little Harry. frightened by the strange use of aspirates and "aitchel " "Don't know 'ow? Why. y.ung hignoramus: saloon is spellt-i with a 'hess' and a 'hay.' two' 'h ,,t-" and a 'hen.' " Harry was worse at sea than ever then; so one of the buv: was sent to the board to write it plainly for the cla the class to see. Te lad could make his letters, but he did not know how to join them in regular running writing style, ar.'I left them unjoined, thus. l-o-o-n. The teacher looked at it a in. - ment. and then asked, with some asperity, "Why don't youn put that 'hay' nearer the hell'." The boy's eyes snapped, and he answered like a flash. "'cause I was afraid it would burn up:'" The cla's was dismissed for the day. But the geography class proved another pitfall. One of the btys. while writing names of European citi",, spelled Venice • What?" cried the teacher on his rounds: "his that the way you sp-ll Venice?" "Yes, sir," said the lad. "Suppose Hiw was to tell you that there was only one 'hen' in Yenice, what would you say ?" •I should say that the price of eggs would be pretty high sir." • "Then there was an explosion." -Exchange.
