VIOLINIST HAD HIS REVENGE.
Humiliated Millionaire in Recompense for Tactless Action. Prince de Sagan, talking about music with one of the French corre spondents in New York, mentioned the violinist Ysaye. "The plump, pale Ysaye," he said, "with his lock that hangs down over his face to his chin, is very, very proud. "A millionaire bootmaker invited Ysaye to dine with bim last year in "Nice. "After dinner the millionaire brought out a violin and asked Ysaye to play. The musician bit his lip, but, taking the Instrument, he played several beautiful morceaux. "Afterwards, in Paris, Ysaye in vited the millionaire to dinner in his turn. There was a distinguished com pany present After dinner, as they were all at coffee in the salon, a serv ant brought the host a pair of old boots. "Ysaye took the boots and handed them gravely to his millionaire guest. " 'But what am I to do with these?' the guest demanded, holding the boots awkwardly in his lap beside his cup. "Ysaye smiled vindictively and flung his long lock behind his ear. "Tn Nice,' he said, 'you asked me after dinner to play for you. Now I ask you to mend these boots for me. Each to his trade, you know.' " CALLS HIMSELF MAN OF PEACE. John D. Rockefeller Refuses to Ancient Relic of Warfare. Buy John D. Rockefeller has refused to buy for $500 a sword sent him by a young woman in England, with the in formation that the weapon was car ried by a soldier in Cromwell's famous "Ironsides" troopers, and had been buried 150 years near a church. The writer said the sword had been dug up 150 years ago. The ancient relic did not appeal to Mr. Rockefeller, who declined it with the remark: "I am a man of peace and have no use for a sword." Annie Parry sent the relic over. After Mr. Rockefeller refused to ac cept the sword it was sent to the seizure room of the customs service. The sword is about three feet long, "has a curved blade, and has apparent ly had rough usage. If the sender does not endeavor to have it returned it will be sold next fall with other un--claimed merchandise. Dish Not to His Liking. An amusing anecdote concerning the proprietor of a famous Madrid res taurant is told in "The Gourmet's Guide to Europe," by Lieut Col. Newnham Davis: "Manolito is a small gray-haired Spaniard who has a twinkle in his eye; he says little, but what little he says is always to the point. A young Spaniard who owed him a large sum for dinners fussed so much over the ordering of the meal that he annoyed Manolito. 'I will bring you a dish, a most extraordinary dish, a dish that you have never seen before,' said Ma nolito, and disappeared, to return im mediately with a large dish capped by a great cover. The dish was put be fore the over-particular Spaniard and the cover whisked off. On the dish lay the very long and much overdue bill. All Wear Just Thirteen Garments. The president of a mixed Thirteen club concluded a recent address thus: "And now, ladies and gentlemen, I beg to announce a gratifying discov ery. We all wear just 10 garments. Males and females alike, our garments number just 13. A man wears two shoes, two socks, one undershirt, one pair of drawers, one shirt one collar, one tie, one pair of trousers, one vest, one coat, one hat. Total, i;j. A woman wears two shoes, two stock ings, one undervest, one chemise, one corset, one pair of er unmention ables, one petticoat, one skirt, one bodice, one belt, one hat. Total, 13. Twenty-four hands beat together in boisterous applause. An Unusual Privilege. "I'm going to kick," complained Henpeck. "My wife doesn't let me have any money to spend at all lately." "You poor fellow!" exclaimed Meekly. "Why, my wife gave me $25 to spend only the other day." "Oh, you're fibbing!" "No, sir! She allowed me to call on the landlord and pay the rent." Dickering. "Yes," said the steamship agent, "that's our best rate for a second-cabin passage to Liverpool." "But," asked the prospective tour ist, "don't you make any rebate?" "For what?" "Well, say, for nine meals. I'm al ways sick the first three days out" Very Soft, Indeed. "I met some one to-day," said Tess "who is very much stuck on you." "Who was it?" asked Jess, after a thoughtful pause. "Just think a moment." "I am thinking; thinking hard." "Oh! you'll never guess that way. Think of something soft" A Proviso. "Of course you won't object to me as a candidate because I'm a poor man." "No," answered the cautious con stituent; "not if you'll consent not to set rich, quick after you get the office."

Prof Thomas Shaw Urges Proper Care of This Feed. The method of handling this product differs in various localities. The com mon method of harvesting puts it into shocks of moderate size as soon as cut, and then into stacks when the weather gets cool. Some growers adopt the following plan: They har vest in the usual way. The corn is put up in small shocks. It is then put into larger uhocks, say two weeks la ter. This plan Is followed by J. J. Furlong of Austin, Minn., who won first prize, on his farm in the Hill con test. The object is to preserve the brightness in the corn and to prevent it from weathering unduly. Mr. Fur long puts four shocks into one. Then as soon as the weather becomes cool, he puts the shocks into stacks with a diameter of about 15 feet. In this way the fodder is well protected from the weather, so that when it is fed it is brighter, sweeter and more nutritious than if fed from the shocks. This system has the further advan tage in areas with a heavy winter snowfall. It gets the corn where it is safe from injury from snow or sleet before these storms come. The objec tion may oe raised that this means extra work. It does, but it means extra value in the fodder also, and extra value that will usually far out weigh the extra labor incurred. The"method of stacking such corn is greatly influenced by the character of the climate. Where winter comes early, the corn cannot in all instances be put into stacks wider than one length of sheaves. The tops and butts are reversed alternately to keen the long stack level. In other instances where the corn is drier, two lengths of sheaves are admissible, overlapping at the tops, and in yet others wide, ob long or round stacks may be buil without endangering the safety of the corn. Good corn fodder, especially not coarse, is one of the best and most economical of fodders. Poor corn fod der is of but little account. HOME-MADE ANVIL. Serviceable Device Easily Made Out of Piece of Old Rail. The anvil shown in the illustration Is inexpensive, and easy of construe tion. As shown in the cut, D is piece of old R. R. rail, which may be from two to four or more feet in length. The rail is turned bottom side up as shown; A A are two pieces of timber, two to four inches thick. and six or eight inches wide, the "size of the three pieces of timber marked C C C will depend on the size of the rail, but should be as heavy as pos sible. The two pieces A A are shaped as shown, and brought up close to the top or rounding side of the iron, sev eral bolts are now cut throush A A Inverted Rail as Anv:l. and G as shown at 13, as many as size of anvil will permit. If the end piece of the rail, with holes for the fish plates can be secured nut bolts through at the top, if not, simply nail the two top pieces C C to A A. When finished, set anvil on the end oi a large cut from an oak tree, as shown at E or on anything that is solid. The anvil with a few simple tools will enable the farmer to do many odd jobs on the farm and will often save a trip to town. R. R. iron may be obtained from almost any section foreman and wood is usually at hand. ALL AROUND THE FARM. The garden is seldom enriched as much as it should be to get the best results from it. Rotation of crops is destructive to predatory insects. Gentleness in cows is very desirable and should be bred for. The nervous cow is not at home on the ordinary American farm. A well of pure water is necessary for the success of the dairy farm. The 200-egg-a-year hen Is a reality, but not many of them are found in a flock. Ten dozen eggs a year for a ben is a good yield, and at that she will pay 100 per cent, dividends. A high up reputation has been made with the low-down wagon. Give it a respectful hearing as to its merits. High Yielding Oats. Within the past 19 years 295 varie ties of oats have been tested at the Ontario Agricultural college and 59 varieties have been compared in each of the past five years. Among these Yellow Russian, Vick American Ban ner and New Zealand ranked first in grain production, with respectively 102 bushels, 101.9 bushels and 99.4 bushels per acre as an average for five years. Hulless, the lowest ranking variety, yielded 56.2 bushels and 31 varieties of the 59 yielded over 90 bushels per acre. Varieties possessing the stlffest straw in 1907, were Liberty, Daubeney, Banner, Kherson, Early Champion and Siberian. V '.Hi1! THIS SETTLES IT! (About 850 Pages.)
