A woman mounted the step of a car, carrying an umbrella like a reversed saber.

She was a plump widow, with two charming daughters. She had been a "relic" jilst a year, and was be ginning to wear her "weeds" lightly. All Hie. same, when the new curate called upon her she sighed: "Ah! I feel the loss ,of my poor, dear husband, very much. 1 never have any appetite for anything now." The curate was all sympathy and, In the endeavor to cheer her by point ing out what a comfort to her her daughters must be, replied: "I can quite understand that, but you are eolaced In " "S-l-r-r!" interrupted the indignant lady.

An old faithful nurse and an exper ienced doctor, are a pretty strong com bination in favor of Postum, instead of tea and coffee. The doctor said: "I began to drink Postum five years ngo on the advice of an old nurse. "During an unusually busy winter, bytween coffee, tea and overwork, I became a victim of Insomnia. In a monta after beginning Postum, in place of tea and coffee, I could eat anything and sleep as soundly as a baby.

MEADOWLARK A PEST? Belongs to Same Family Blackbird and Oriole. as Amount of Damage Done by This Bird Varies With Depth of Planting, Condition of Soli and Prox imity to Pastures. (By H. C. BRYANT.) The meadow-lark is not a true lark, but belongs to the same family to which, the blackbird and oriole be long. Since the meadowlark of the eastern states differs from that found In the western states In both song and coloration, the bird of the west Is termed the western meadowlark. This Is a common bird from Wiscon sin, Illinois, Iowa, Texas, etc., west to the Pacific coast, also ranging north into Canada and south into Mexico. The meadowlark is well known be cause of its size, bright plumage and cheerful song. It is a conspicuous bird of treeless areas and a frequenter of the meadow and pasture. In Cali fornia it Is found from sea level to altitudes of 7,000 feet In the moun tains. It Is most abundant in the great central valleys where, in some places, the birds may be seen con gregated in flocks of fifty or more, feeding almost entirely on the ground. This meadowlark appears to be one of the few birds which, is profiting by the lncreaoed cultivation of land. Al falfa furnishes particularly good food and cover for the bird and grain fields are often chosen for a home. With the furnishing of still more good food and cover, combined with the destruc tion of some of its enemies, the west ern meadowlark may be expected to till further increase in numbers. Oats appear to be preferred. In the fields Inspected, damage was greatest in sandy soli, for here the grain is more easily obtained. Next to the condition of the soil, the factor gov erning the extent of damage appears to be the proximity of the natural habitat of the bird. Fields bordering on marsh grass lands and pastures suffer most. In some Instances the meadow lark have followed the drill row for distances of Your to six feet and ap parently pulled every sprout. Barley and wheat are attackod to a less ex tent than oats. Field corn and sor ghum are not damaged. Meadowlarks can succeed In pulling the sprouting grain only when It first appears above the ground. After the second and third blades appear the plant Is well rooted and the kernel Holes Bored by Meadowlarks in Ob taining Kernels of Sprouting Grain. no longer essential to the life of the plant. Only the grain which is within one and one-half Inches of the surface is obtainable. Hence the difficulty of obtaining the kernel and the ter mination of the timu during which tho kernel is essenU.il to the life of the plant soon makes destruction im possible. Hard, dry soil precludes attack. Damage Is greatest after the soil has been softened by rain. In vestigation shows that fields appar ently greatly damaged while the grain was sprouting have shown but little damage at harvest time, in some caseB a certain amount of thinning may be beneficial so that unless the damage is great the birds may per form a real service. The fact that oats is most seriously damaged and that, with the exception of barley and wheat, otber grains are not attacked CARE FOR STACKED ALFALFA Best Way to Cure Hay Is to Rake It Into Small Winrows and Let the Crop Dry Out Slowly. Sometimes weather conditions make It almost impossible to .put alfalfa hay In the stack In good condition, and heating and burning results. A. H. Leidllgb, assistant professor of crops at the Kansas Agricultural college, says a comparison will show why the water doe t readily cure out of the stemB. If a tree is cut down on a cool, cloudy day, eald Professor Leld ligh, the leaves remain green and fresh for some time. They take water from the trunk and pass it off Into the atmosphere. If the weather Is reasonably cool for a few days, the water will all be taken out of the tree. Now, If the tree Is cut down on a hot, sultry day tho leaves .will dry up and fall off. The water is still In the trunk of the tree, and there is no way ror it to get out quickly. It is the same with alfalfa. Wheu It Is Impossible to wring also minimises the amount of possible damage. When the benefits conferred by the meadowlark are I ilanced with the Injuries, there remains no doubt that the bird deserves protection. Its value as a destroyer of Injurious In sects far exceeds Its detriment as a destroyer of sprouting grain. The value of one of these birds living to one dead Is as five pounds of insects and one-half pound of weed seeds Is to one and tbree-fourths pounds of grain, a considerable part of which Is made up of wild oats and wast grain. A strong point favoring their pro tection is to be found In the fact that the damage to sprouting grain fields can be largely prevented by planting grain deeply and drilling Instead of broadcasting, two measures highly advocated as favoring larger crops. SPBAY MACHINE IS USEFUL Power Pumped Through Nozzles as Cart Moves Over Field Used for Sowing Grass Seed.

The powder that the tank con tains Is forced through the nozzle un der sufficient pressure to spray it In all directions. The machine Is de signed primarily for the purpose of spraying insectide over growing plants and is a big Improvement on the band method of doing this work, being not only much more thorough, but much more speedy, as It sprays seven or eight rows at once. Such a machine might also be used to sow certain kinds of seed, like grass seed, that did not have to be dropped in rows. Tillage Is Manure. The old maxim that tillage is ma nure has been shown to be true at Cornell university farm, where ex periments were made in that direc tion. Some plots of potatoes were cultivated as many as eight times, and In every case the greater the number of times tho plants were cul tivated the larger the yields com pared with plots on which fewer cul tivations were given. The level culture was better than hilling. Two lots, cultivated eight times, left perfectly level through the season, produced at the rate . of 384 busbels and 357 bushels per acre, and three lots cultivated five times, produced 349 bushels, 325 bushels and 288 bushels, the last lot being hilled at the final cultivation. Fruits and Vegetables. Fruits and vegetables not only In crease the healthfulness and attrac tiveness of the dally bill of fare, but they save a great deal of expense, and are far belter than the canned goods from the store. The, farmer who sets a good table, well supplied with fruits and vegetables, is mak ing a high bid to attract and keep good farm help. Busy Bees. Now watch the bees work on the golden rod and Bweet clover. water out of the hay, enys Professor Leldligh, It Is dry enough to stack. Tho best way to cureTiay is to rake it into small winrows and let It dry out slowly. If the ground Is damp, or If the air is very moist, the winrows must be turned frequenty to expose all the hay to the sun. Hay often heats In the stack be cause it Is rained on, or because It ab sorbs moisture from the ground. Not less than $5 to $10 worth of hay Is spoiled on the top and bottom of s. 25-foot stack of alfalfa, put up In the usual way. This loss may be avoided by stacking on a foundation of poles, or under sheds. The money saved on a few stacks will pay for the shed. Opinioiis differ on just how much the feeding value of alfalfa Is af fected by heating. Some argue that while It lowers tho feeding value, it Improves the taste. Oat tit 'Usually eat brown and black alfalfa with more relish than they do the bright green hay. Secret of Pruning. The secret of pruning Is novor ta allow a useless limb to grow.
