MANURE NEEDED FOR GARDEN
On Average Farm Alert Gardener Will
Usually Find Sufficient Quan
tity Near at Hand.
Where there is a scarcity of stable
manure it may be well to purchase a
few loads for the garden. However,
on the average farm the alert gardener
will usually find a sufficient quantity
of animal manures near at hand. If
a cow, pigs and poultry are kept, the
cow stall, the pigpens and the poul
try houses should be cleaned out at
regular intervals and the contents
spread over the garden soil and worked
In. In addition to adding plant food,
the heavy application of such animal
manures enlivens the soil so as to ad
mit more air and thus induce greater
bacterial action it also increases the
moisture-holding capacity by render
ing the soil more friable and sponge
Most garden soils will be benefited
also by an application of lime at the
rate of three our four tons per acre
every few years. The judicious use
of lime corrects acidity, renders com
pact soils more friable and makes
loose, sandy soils more compact.

OBTAINING EGGS IN WINTER
One Must Have Comfortable House
for LayersFurnish Supply of
Clean Drinking Water.
"To secure eggs in winter one must
first have a comfortable house for the
layers," writes a Pittville (Mo.) poul
try raiser to the Missouri Ruralist.
"The house must be free from damp
ness and drafts. Then there must be
an abundance of clean drinking water
kept free from freezing.
"For the morning feed we give
^luall grain, wheat or kafir, or mixed
grains, one pint for every ten hens,
scattered In straw or any clean litter.
"For the midday meal, clover or
alfalfa hay chopped in short lengths
is given. To prepare this hay I use
a large wooden bucket with a lid and
pour boiling water or skim milk over
it. I cover it close until ready to feed
and then mix in enough dry mash to
make a crumbly mass. I mix well to
gether and feed in a wooden trough.
In the evening we feed corn on the
cob cut up in short lengths.
"Sand and oyster shells are kept
before our hens at all times. When
the weather is fine and tho hens can
find green food we omit the clover
or alfalfa, and feed a mash moistened
with milk and water. We get plenty
of eggs through the winter. We have
the S. C. Rhode Island Reds."

Mothers Know That
of Western Canada's Rapid Progress
The heavy crops in Western Canada have caused
new records to be made in the handling of grains
by railroads. For, while the movement of these
heavy shipments has been wonderfully rapid, the
resources of the different roads, despite enlarged
equipments and increased facilities, have been
strained as never before, and previous records
have thus been broken in all directions.
The largest Canadian wheat shipments through New York ever known
are reported for the period up to October 15th, upwards ol four and a
quarter million bushels bclna exported in less tnan six weeks,
and thin was but the overflow of shipments to Montreal, through whicn
point shipments were much larger than to New York.
Yields as high as 60 bushels-of wteat per acre are reported from all
parts of the country, while yields of 45 bushels per acre are common.

duction. Land prices are still low and free homestead lands are easily secured
