Hinge for Cats Which Permit 'It to Bo Railed on Low End. Any ordlnnry gate will answer the purpoHO. The Improvement is In the hinges. These aro mndo of oa onll nnry wat'on tire.

A Matter of much Importance, both as regards saving moisture and pre venting runt injuries, Ik tho depth of surface tillage. Too shallow cultiva tion will not be effective In checking evaporation, still one must know that the soil should not bo stirred so deep that the top roots are rut. If this is dune the growth Is at once checked, and tho roots are forcod lower In search of supplies. From two to threo Inches have been found the best depth for flat cultivation, where the ground has been thoroughly prepared. When a seed bed has been thoroughly fined, proper handling will bring the corn crop along, with the minimum amount of rainfall. The problem, says In diana Farmer, Is to maintain good capillary action between tho lower water systems and the soil where tho roots are growing. When the water moves upwards and strikes the dust blanket It Ib checked, and It must pass t.itt through the plant, rather than by evaporation. It Is a pretty nice prob lem, but the aim should he to make all water and fertilizing material pass through the roots of the growing plnn'.s, work for the dust mulch; don't dig down to the wet soil, go that with every cultivation you expos-) more soli to the sun. MEDITATIONS. I allure comes to the faint heart ed. Fear of being caught stunds for con st lonre In some men. Much of the fertility of American rolls hns been wasted by the men that have cultivated It. No mnn should call himself a good farmer if his land has been growing less productive from yenr to year. It Is tint safe to ba governed by tnn results of a trial of one year on tho farm, for frequently results are brought about by conditions which we know nothing about. The most nutritious hay Is made when grasses or clover are In bloom. A delay of one week In the cutting period will make a big difference In the actual feeding value of ' the . crop. . With tho prospect of a Bhort hay crop, put away Bonie sheaf oats, when harvest comes again. They make fine feed; In fact. If they are not put up before tho straw becomes too ripe, there Is nothing bolter. Sheep Are Best Producers. Prof. F. B. Mumford of tho Mis Eourl experiment station says thai .sheep produce tnoro meat from a pound of grain than any other class of farm animals. In fact, a pound of mutton can bo produced from about half as much grain as a pound of beef. Even Missouri's mostgage-llfllng bog requires more grain to produce a pound of human food than the sheep, With the combination of corn and clover bay for feed, the dry Bhed for shelter, sheep will always give good account of themselves and respond readily to tlio care given them.

"Why. only one or two of the fel lows up tlittie need to take snuff to muko the whole crowd sneeze." Philadelphia Ledger. Laundry work at home would be much nioro satisfactory if the right Starch were used. In order to get the desired stiffness, It la usually neces sary to use so much starch that the beauty and fineness of tho fabric Is hidden behind a paste of varying thickness, which not only destroys the appearance, but alao affects tho wear ing quality of the goods. This trou ble ran bo entirely overcome by using Defiance Starch, as It ran be applied much moro thinly because of its great er strength than other makes. HER TOKEN OF THE PAST.

"I ubservo that you are wearing an especially lino locket," said he. "Tell me, does It contain aome token of a past lovo affair?" Aware of tho westerner's weakness, the handsome New Yorker thought to humor him a bit. "Yes," smiled she, "It does contain a token of tho past, a lock of my husband s hair." "You don't mean to tell me that you're a widow!" exclaimed the west erner. In delighted surprise, as he nudged a trltle nenrer. "I understood that your husband was alive."
