The late John W. Gates, an Incur able optimist, harped continually on the futility of pessimism. One of Mr. Gates epigrams, still quoted on the Chicago Stock Exchange, ran: "lie who nurses foolish hopes may be an ass, but he is not such an ass as he -who nurses vain regrets." A Great Grace. It Is no great matter to associate with the good and gentle, for this is raturally pleasing to all and every one willingly en joyeth peace and loveth those best that agree with him.

A Boston lady talks entertainingly of food fnd the changes that can bo made int?ealth by some knowledge on that line.' She says: "An injury to my spine In early worn anhood left me subject to severe sick headaches which would last three or four days at a time, and a violent course of drugging brought on const! fcilon with all the ills that follow.

IL SPURWAY, Assistant Department of Soils, Michigan Agricultural College i .' . t f Hp m m bit Showing Comparative Water Holding Capacity of Sandy Loam and Muck Soil. (After King.) The fertility of any soil depends In a large measure upon the amount of water which that soil will hold under field conditions, and which will flow away through the drainage system. Our ordinary field crops require enor mous amounts of water In order to give a good growth and profitable re turns. If the crop can not obtain wa ter when it needs it, then there will be a cessation of growth, which will result in low yields. The Illustration shows approximately the amount of water which each of three ordinary kinds of soil will hold under field conditions. Each group of two Jars shows 12 Inches of soil and the amount of wa ter held by the soil. The Jar to the left in each case contains the 12 Inches of soil, and the one at the Tight, the water held by that kind of soil. Group No. 1 contains a sandy loam soil, and the amount of water held by this soil under field conditions a few days after heavy rains is three Inches. This mears that the soil over a sandy loam field to the depth of 12 Inches will hold in the spaces between the soil grains an amount of water which would cover the field to the depth of three inches. Group No. 2 con tains a clay loam soil and the amount of water held in this case is three and one-half inches. A muck soil is shown In tho third group and the water held by a foot of this soil is six Inches. The important thing for the farmer GREEN MANURING The business of the soil is to pro duce crops. In order to accomplish this business most successfully, it is necessary that the soil possess certain qualities: A proper temperature. Proper ventilation. The ability to gather and hold for the use of the crop goodly quantities of capillary water. In order that any soil shall possess these qualities It must be first of all properly drained. It must also be in the best possible condition of tilth, or as we frequently express it, it must have a proper condition of mellowness. This tilth will depend upon three things, namely: The proper selection and use of tools. The practice of a rational system of rotation in which a legume, preferably clover, shall occupy the soil at least one year in the rotation. The return to the soil of the largest possible amount of organic matter. Upon the selection and use of tools and upon the rotation will depend in no small degree the ability of the soil to gather and hold moisture, and also to permit the ready movement of air through the soil. It is also true that the presence of organic matter re ferred to helps in no small degree the ventilation and also the water gather ing and water holding capacity of tho soil. The presence of the organic mat ter is helpful also in the fact that it renders the soil darker in color ami therefore increases the capacity of the soil to gather the best from the sun shine, and therefore renders the temperature condition of the soil bet ter for the germination of seeds aid the growing of the crop. The system of farming which re turns naturally to the soil the largest amount of organic matter Is live stock farming In some of its phases; for in live stock farming the products of the farm Vire fed largely to the live 6tock and nothing but finished prod ucts in the form of meats, wood, dairy products, poultry products, etc., are sold away from the farm, everything being reserved In the way of roughage and manures. It frequently happens also that In live stock farming, not only are the products of the farm fed, but concentrates in the form of trains, and meals, etc., are purchased for feed and the manures are thus en hanced and enriched. Where little live stock is kept and much or most 'of the products are gold from the farm, special means must be employed to keep up the sup ply of organic matter. Where worn out or run down lands ,re purchased and especially where large quantities of manure are avail able, special means must be employed 'b Introduce Into these soils organic m , - "A ' to consider Is the reason why one soil holds more water than another. II the capacity of a soil for water can be Increased by any means, It would be of great importance to the tillers of the soil. There are two principal things which cause soils to hold more water. One Is fineness of the soil par ticles or grains, and the other is the amount of organic matter or humus which the soil contains. The fine grains of the clay loam soil, together with the humus which It contains, and the amount of organic matter and humus in the muck soils, puts them in a condition to hold more water than the sandy loam soil. The finer the grains of any soil the more water it will hold. The addition of organic matter to a soil will cause it to hold more water. It would be a hard matter to make the grains of a soil finer than they are In any case, but a great deal can bo done to make the particles or soil crumbs finer by cultivating soils prop erly, and only when they are in the proper condition to be worked. Organ ic matter or humus can be added to the soil cheaply and In many different ways. Plowing under clover or clover 6od, adding barnyard manure, sowing rye or vetch in the fall and plowing it under in the spring are some of the methods by which organic matter can be added to the soil. This will put the soil In condition to hold more wa ter for the growing crop, and will be helpful in many other ways. matter that they may be rendered nor mally productive. In intensive farming, orcharding and trucking, and where abundant quanti ties of barn yard manure cannot be had, special means must be employed, to Increase the amount of 'organic matter in the soil. In the case of the run down soils and in case of tho Intensive farming, orcharding and trucking, mentioned above, it becomes necessary to adopt a special method of Increasing the amount of organic matter in the soil. This method is usually spoken of as green manuring. It consists of the planting and growing of a crop to plow under before It has reached ma turity. The crops most commonly used for the purpose are: Rye. Oats. Corn sown broadcast or drilled with ordinary drill at the rate of a bushel per acre, and sometimes a combina tion of oats and peas. In some sections of the country cow peas or soy beans are grown for this purpose. These are used much in the south and also on the heavy clay soils of the central states. The hairy or winter vetch is some sometlmes used. At the present time the hairy vetch is being used with marked success on some of the light er lands of western Michigan. Rye and vetches are usually sown In the fall or late summer. The others are sown in the spring as early as conditions for the several crops will permit. The rate of sowing is usually a lit tle heavier than that employed In growing crops for grain or seed. Some difficulties are sometimes met with in the plowing under, of the drop. Where it is dense, it is sometimes nec essary to use a roller upon it before attempting to plow, care being taken to roll it in the same direction as the plowing is to be done. It is also time times necessary to place upon the plow a chain or some other means to insure the complete covering of the tops of tho crop. Two dangers are to be guarda against. It is not always that the green manure crop is allowed to ap proach maturity, but however this may be, if the succeeding crop is to be planted Immediately after the green manure crop Is plowed under, unless care is observed, the material which Is plowed under will cut off the cap illary rise of water from the lower soil, with the result that the upper soil, remains too dry to support ger mination or growth. A heavier roll er should be employed immediately after the plowing, and this should be closely followed by a thorough work ing with packing or stirring tools. The other danger is that of the souring or fermenting of the green material plow ed under. The more rank the grouth and the heavier the soil the greater Is the danger of this souring. If there fore the soil Is Inclined to be heavy and if the crop is to be sown shortly, the green manure crop should not be allowed to make too large growth be fore this plowing under. AS THE TWIG IS BENT IT 13 EASY TO TEACH LITTLE CHILD GOOD MANNERS. While His Mind Is Plastic He Should Be Trained In the Home In Proper Behavior and Language. Good manners, like charity, should begin at home. Let me add that they 6hould begin with the little children, while their minds are in a receptive, plastic condition. With use, the good manners, especially of speech, grow toward a state of perfection. You do not need to have a governess or a tutor for your child. You can be gin to train him yourself, being care ful to correct every bad tendency and to encourage and praise every good action. Some little ones are painfully shy in the presence of strangers. In spire:conldence in them and let them gradually become accustomed to the outsider. Do not force the shy child to kiss a stranger or to talk to one when you see that it is positive tor ture, j Walt till he is a little older. In 'speech, begin right away with the use of "thank you" and "please." I know children with extremely lim ited vocabularies who use these terms correctly. , Insist that there be - no interrup tions when others are speaking. Give a child his opportunity to be heard, and when he asks a question for In formation, answer him. If he is merely asking for the sake of asking, and pays no attention to the reply, punish him by refusing the next time and telling him why you refuse. When you call a child, do not per mit it to say "What?" It is crude, abrupt and lacks something whichs so easily supplied that you should not neglect the opportunity to do so. Very much better is, "What did you say, mother?" or "I did not hear, father." Try this for the difference if you doubt my word. Children can show the required def erence ta elders not by "Yes, ma'am," for that is obsolete and more the sign of respect shown by a servant to an employer. Better than this is the "No, Aunt Mary," or "Yes, father." When an older person greets a lit tle child and asks "How are you?" he should not be met by a hanging head and a sullen face. The little one should reply, "Very well, thank you." It is very easy to teach these little things when the boy or girl is young. A little girl when entering a room should stand beside her mother's chair until introduced. A little boy should always rise when his elders enter a room and remain standing until the others are seated. Oh, It is easy to bend the twig! I remember the wail and regret of one man who at" a" mature age had to be taught all the little things that should have been drilled In when he was a little boy. Today notice the speech of any lit tle one around you. Find out the flaws and begin right away to cor rect the imperfections. You will be gratified with the results. Philadel phia North American. Talking It Over With the Boy. Experiences of others In bringing' up their boys have so greatly aided me in bringing up my own, that, per haps, a way which helped me through a trying period with one of my sons may, in its turn, be of use. Although for years Ihad tried to Instill good manners as well as mor als, there came a tfcne when one of the boys seemed to forget everything I had been at such pains to teach. He positively ignored the rights of others, and developed little tricks of manner which, while not serious, were exceed ingly annoying. It is a delicate matter to keep call ing attention to failings in a big boy of sixteen, and I found our good fel lowship was becoming seriously strained. A simple plan suggested itself I gave up all fault-finding except on one day of the month. On that day we had a good talk and got over it. This cleared the atmosphere, sui lenness disappeared. I did not feel neglected, yet could stop what had become nagging, and the one serious talk proved far more effectual than constant protests. "The Truth About Birds." Let us face the truth about birds; nor be duped by the beauty of their flight's Incalculable curves. They are greedy, they are impertinent, they are untrustworthy, they are brainless, they are hopelessly unclean. They have not even the qualities of their defects. The least, for example, that one could expect of such raatinal crea tures would be punctuality. Myself, I have "never depended on my wood pecker to wake me at a given time; but I once bad a friend who counted on a cardinal-bird. Six mornings he waked her regularly Just three hours before breakfast. This, she consid ered, constituted a precedent. On the freventh morning, she had an early en gagement. The cardinal-bird had, by that time, sought other casements, and my trusting friend missed her ap pointment. This is the real meaning of "flightlness." Katharine F. Gerould In the Atlantic.

Don't Follow the Crowd. In chasing the market for profit, the fellows who blindly follow the crowd are generally the ones who get left. The successful man buys when he has the least competition, at the lowest prices and with the greatest margin for profit, which usually brings his selling time during a period of com parative scarcity at market, and he therefore gets higher prices and most always makes a good profit in his dealings. Here's a Chance for Gain. The present very low market 'val ues of feeding sheep and lambs, being less than the cost of production, of fers such an opportunity to those who are prepared to properly care for them. Feeders Are Selling Cheap. Well-bred, thin but thrifty lambs of the growing kind can now be bought on the Chicago market for $5.25 to 5.50 per 100 pounds; wethers of sim ilar description, $3.40 to $3.75; year ling wethers, $4.25 to $4.50; yearling breeding ewes, $4.00 to $4.60, and good feeding ewes at $2.50 to $2.85. These prices are about $1.75 lower than a year ago for feeder lambs, and the lowest since 1904. Feeder sheep prices also are unusually low. Now Is the Time to Buy. In view of the fact that prices of feeder sheep and lambs are now be low the cost of production, and that present prices of lamb and mutton are out of line with all other meats and must therefore soon rise because of the increased consumption invited thereby, the conclusion Is inevitable that now is the best time to buy feed er sheep and lambs for all those who are ready to prepare them for market during the early part of next year. A leading sheep owner end dealer says: "Fat is made pretty cheap on the Fall feed that otherwise would be wasted, and the sheep and lamb feeding proposition from the stand point of fertility is worthy of most careful consideration." Buying Legislators In Joblots. One day, writes Sloane Gordon in Success Magazine, a former member of the Ohio house displayed, inad vertently, a large roll of bills in the Neil house lobby. A fellow member gazed in awe at the show of wealth. "I Just sold a drove of hogs," ex plained the former member rather hastily and confusedly. The observing one was thoughtful. He did not reply for the half-minute usually essential to the full-measured beat of his mental processes. And then "Yaas," he drawled, "and I'll bet I'm one o' them hawgs."
