j An even superficial study of Russian
proves beyond doubt that
the f - tple of tbe czar's domain are
■suffering more from disordered and
disadvantageous economic conditions —
tibjeot want and starvation— tlian from
a denial of political, social and reli
gious privileges. And yet history shows
1 that the fight for the ballot has usually
been * forerunner or accompaniment
in the struggle for bread. In this con
nection it is interesting to note that
shortly after the people were granted a
representative assembly the Russian
government has taken under consideru
tiou the setting aside of some $7,000,
000 for the immediate relief of desti
tute peasants, and what Is of more
vital and lasting value has in view a
•division of portions of the imperial and
feudal domains among the farmers ami
laboring people of the empire. The
salvation of Russia iv her present

people work at remunerative wages.

that not very much reliance can be
placed in Hie statement of souie or

borer will not bother the tree after it
-Ims attained an a^e of seven or eight
;years and the bark gets rough. An
inspection of our orchard not long
fciuce shows ;<)rno.;l as many of the
'borers at work in the larger as in the
-smaller trees. The only safe way In
the care of the orchard Is to keep the
grass hoed away from the trunk, the
wateraiMJUbi cut and to give the trees
a careful Inspection at least twice dur-'
ing the season 1 . Thousands of trees
die every year from supported sun
ftctild, blight or arboreal heart failure,

A. little five-year-old made a garden
all by herself last spring. It was a lit

the first gr^en leaves and tendrils to

A roMi'AUisorv.
A farm which is continually drained
by the production of large crops raised
with reference to supplying the local
or foreign markets becomes in time
like the stiltall town which has Just
been visited by the circus. The farm
sends forth its crops without n corre
sponding return of fertility to the soil;
the town parts with its money without
receiving a proportionate impetus and
growth in business. In the one case
the object sought is moriey, which
gives nothing back to the soil. Iv the
other ease the object in view is pleas
ure, which adds nothing to the wealth
of the community. Each year that the
farm loses its crops, the soil becomes
that much' poorer. Each time that the
town has a circus the people have just
that much less money to spend for oth
er thl tics.
An enterprising farmer that we
know of made some good bins to store
grain in from sugar barrels. These
barrels were placed upon a firm foun
dation, where they would be secure
and above diuupuess. After the cracks
were filled in" so as to make the bins
mouse proof a heavy, square board
cover was fitted over the whole on
hinges. These bins were a great satis
faction, in that they were clean and
easy to get at, and more could b<?
added If desired with but little work.
Some day when you have an ambitious
fit and get to cleaning up yonr barn
let this idea take root.
