The rupldlly of an expert In set- tine, plants with a pes Is a surprise to the i,oli. I have bad men peK In 20 plants to the minute or 1.200 In mi hour. Steel peK are for sale, but n wooden one cohIb nothing and In far better. As plants are of different kinds and sizes. I find different sizes and shapes of pens necessary, so I whittle the pecs to suit the kind of plants I am setting The rlKht use. and the rapid use, -of the peg will gradually be learned by practice. If the Kround Is too wet, dirt will Btick to the peg; If too dry, will full hack into the hole when the jh-is Is removed. In either rase, this can be avoided by Rlvlnt; the peg a twirl as It Is removed from the hole. Hoiiietliiies the bole Is too small to admit the plant. This car. bo over-conn- by wabbling the peg while ma king the hole. When the plant Is Inserted, con tinues the w riter In Kami and Home, the dirt should be pressed firmly about It with the pes. This Ik done by a movement of the wrist, in which the peg is thrown from an upright posi tion to a sharp slant, so that while the point of the peg has pressed the dirt on the far side of the plant, the side of the peg, by a seml-elrcu'n' move meut of the hand, has pressed the dirt o'i the right and on the side next to you. This movement is not easily learned. To gain rapid move- nt prnctlce li coiiiiilEg four.

An animal's comfort means the own er's prcflt It Is never wise or profitable to keep n nnltr.nl In poor flesh. The trained veterinarian should be encouraged and patronized. No one who hns to labor for a living Rhotilci flight small Indu.-'. l . Good crops, stock, fertility and In dustry are the essential features In good farming. There Is a certain satisfaction In taking a yearly Inventory of the farm. It Is ihe best way to find the "leaks," too. Keep the land as rich as possible. Angleworms work more In rich hind than In poor land, and they constantly Improve the soil. Plow Up Thin Meadows. If meadows are thin they had better be plowed up than left to lie In hope that (hey will recover their old vigor. It is dlflirult to apply manure effec tively from the top. If the land Is plowed up and given a free application of manure and then put Into some rn p Ihnt will require cultivation, more progress will be made than can be made In any other nay. Many a thin meadow Is kept year lifter year, hard ly paying for the work put upon It In mowing nnd curing the light crop of bay, which is cften very wiry. When a meadow becomes thin It Is a good Indication that It should he put Into sumo other crop for a few years. Bordeaux Mixture.

An Interesting discussion upon tbn cultural and sod methods or orchard management Is now going on in hor ticultural circles. Vuluable informa tion is given by the adherents of the different methods. Argument. In sup port of either method are not only logical, but arc supported by experi ments successfully conducted, extend ing over a period of yours. Tho scan her for knowledge Is left in doubt as to which system Is best, unless he has had personal experience or Is able to read between the lines of tho discussion and get at the true In wardness of the situation. It Is well for all persons to under stand that few men fall under any system where Intense energy is prac ticed, and signal ability In utilizing conditions and circumstances Is dis played (irant Illtehings brought Im mense success to a sod mulch Mstem, where hundreds would fall. It is the man In my opinion that consMtutes the first reiulsitle. I would emphasize, writes A. X. llrown in Orange .linld Farmer, that Mr. Hitching studied and understood his conditions, lie Knew exactly how to control them. He could calculate results, based upon his own experiences. Just as Intelligently as he could solve a problem In mathe matics. It Is my purpose to take up the Issue and discuss either svsteni. but lest we forget, I want to call attention to a few facts that the thoughtful or chardist must ever keep before him If he wishes to make the best of Mb environment. If he practices the sod system, or the sod mulch system, or the cultural mulch system, the funda mentals must be observed. It Is known thai a fruit tree makes mi per cent of lis wood growth and buds be fore July 1. There Is then a cessation of wood grow th and bud format Ion, ostensibly to allow It to mature fully before the approach of winter. Any system prac ticed not In accord with this plan of nature Is faulty. Again, a hearing apple tree requires '.o make Its growth. 1.47 pounds ni trogen. 0 39 pounds phosphoric acid and 1.67 pounds potash. These plant food elements must he supplied in this ratio. A deficiency In any one of the elements lowers Ihe ration to the same extent. We know that these elements must be supplied either naturally or artificially. In supplying them, how ever, we dare not lose Bight of the fact that moisture tlTih and humus are factors in the availability and solu bility of these plant food elements. A proper cultural system will also stimulate growth and make necessary soil conditions, at the time when such wood fiov.tb nnd bud growth must take p'ace. Such cultural system, ac companied by the fall and winter mulch Fy.itt m, with some legumes, which must never be removed, but plowed under, will furnish the neces surv humus so that moisture consumed by culture b held for supplying the tree as needed, and In dissolving and making available the mineral plant food 1 1-u.ei.ts Intent In the soil. The legume rover crop furnishing all needed nitrogen, or. In fact, such system practiced, will furnish to each acre 203 pounds nitrogen. 4K pounds phosphoric acid and 202 pounds pot ash. ThlB amount of plant food Is re turned to the Midi less the amount re quired for the growth of Ihe crop itself, and such as may he eliminated In the process of disintegration. A culture mulc'i system practiced along these lines with a view of meeting the natural requirements of tree and fruit Ib Ideal. It Is within the reach of every orchardlst except upon ex tremely hilly or rocky situations. A mulch system t. be successful must be such that humus and mois ture are supplied In full amount at the proper time, and In such form or manner that nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash are furnished as needed. A purely Bod system Is faulty, by reason of the fact that no humus Is furnished. The moisture Ib taken when It Is most needed, and the growing of the sod at the season when the tree needs moisture and food takes from Instead of furnish. Ing to the plant food needed. The cultural mulch system Is within the reach of every orchardlst. The sod mulch system Is within the reach of only certain orchardlata; those who have a particularly moist and poor soil. The sod method should only be practiced where the other systems are Impossible. In every fruit section It Ib now pretty generally conceded that the cultural mulch system of orchard management Is the most eco nomical and the most profitable. 6PRING KIDNEY TROUBLE. EASY WAY TO POLE BEANS. Trellis on Which Beans Will Find Ready Support. Set posts at convenient distances apart and stretch a wire ot the top. This may be done as soon as ground Trellis for Beana. Is plowed. Plant aud cultivate one row each side of line until beans be gin to vine, then set pole slanting, ty ing them together where they cross at the wire. This braces the whole row, explains Farm and Home, and beans -an be cultivated with hoe. Hills threc eet apart in row with one vine t -111 are better than two vines.

Occasionally ono hears the "hand mixed" paint of the painter slightingly spoken of us "unscientific" and "not thoroughly mixed." Tho facts are all on the side of the painter and his baud prepared paint. It Is the most "scientific" pnlnt there is, because It Is inado on tho spot to suit the parilculur purpose for which it Is to he used. It Is as scientific as a pond doctor's prescription. If the painter did not mix It thus It would he as unscientific ns a patent medi cine. Moreover, the paint which a good painter turns out Is maue of genuine white lend and pure linseed o,l. If be dues not mix It himself be Is not suro what Is in It, and conse quently his client cannot bo, sure. As for not being thoroughly mixed by machinery, (hat Is simply n nils Matement.

This paste need only he thinned with additional Unseed oil to make It ready for the hru.-h. The thorough Incorporation of pig ment and oil has already been accom plished before the painter gets It.
