Some of it is brown and brittle, full of dust and chaff. Such hay is possessed of very little nutriment. Its fault lies in the fact that it was too rip i when it was cut. Especially is this true of timothy hay. Many farmers think it will do no harm to let the timothy stand until after the harvest before t utting. The wheat harvest crowds the hay ing pretty close some years, and something is apt to get over-ripe. An extra effort should be made even by hiring extra men to get the grass secured while it is yet green. A!tjr harvest, hay is not us'-ndly very sala ble. It is sun-dried and bleached un til nearly all the goodness is gone. A fancied saving in help at haying time often results in a much greater loss in value of the crop. "Fenny wise tind pound foolish" applies in this case. Secure the crop in good season. It will be worth more either 1 o feed or to sell by so doing. Clover hay should by cut as soon as it is nicely in blossom. It takes longer to dry it sufficiently but it is much bet ter. A quantity of hay caps made of unbleached sheeting will pay for themselves in a single rainstorm oftitnes when the hay is so easily col ored by becoming wet. Colored hay never sells for as much as that which is bright. Sheeting a yaid and a quarter wide will do Very "well for the caps. Tear in Mpinres, hem on the sewing machine, or not, as one pleases. Tie a peg to each coiner to fasten over the hay cocks by thrust ing them into the hM Well cared for they will last lor years. New York Tribune. Farmers' Foolish Fancies. A few years ago the farmers of - Vermont thought tlrs a good State to immigrate from, but now in com paring this with other States it is found to be one of the very best for good permanent business and resi dence. If one-tenth of the money fthat has been sent to those cyclone, flood, locust and famine breeding States in the West, and lost, could have been used here to improve stock, farming utensil?, clearing and improving the land, erecting larger and better equipped buildings for homes, animals and crops, this would be the richest and most profitable agricultural State in the Union of its size. They have learned a lesson. Most of those who sent their hard earned money West, hoping to be come Vanderbilts in a year or two,or sold their ever-productive Vermont farms for quarter their value to in vest in phantom chasing, living in sod houses and reapicg an abundant crop of grasshoppers, have returned, or would if they could. A good steady yield is better than periodical big crops of wheat, etc., that will not fetch enough to pay cost of produc tion and marketing, and the next year have your buildings and stock moved without notice to another county by those gentle breezes or the surplus temperance drink. Use your brains, money and muscle in Ver mont, and it will pay you. Rutland Saturday Budget.

It 101 siits of a small card ruled off into sixteen tquares and sixteen little pieces of pasteboard, each bear ing a numler and running from one to sixteen. The trick is to arrange these numlu'rs on the card so that the result will be thirty-four, no mat ter which way you add them. The puzzle came from Chicago, and the fever of trying to solve it has taken hold of nearly every member of the Senate. Even Mr. Steveuson drops his gavel into the hands of a Sena tor and retiree to the palatial Vice President's room to try his hand at the puzzle. The cloak and retiring rooms are tilled with Senators busy at work on the cardboard and five figures. Senator Davis of Minnesota did it in the short 'st time, with Ilig gins of Delaware a close second. In fact, the Republican side of the cham ber came out far ahead of the Demo cratic side.

Xi.fl.MOII.XiE COUlTT'Sr SITOS Bllt MD THUST MHPffl Hydo Paris, STATEMENT MAY 1st, 1894, Capital Stock, - - $50,000.00 Surplus and uniivided profits, - 18,547.23 Deposits, - - - 339,063.23 Total Asssts, 407,615.51 The only Savings Bank which has Every Dollar of its Assets Invested in Vermont. mo those who deem absolute safety of principal of greater importance than -L high rates of interest, the following facts will be of interest : First : IT IS SAFE. It has never lost a dollar by bad investments, nor has it now, so far as known, a single dollar of poor or doubtful paper. It has never loaned a dollar outside of Vermont, but every investment is either in Lamoille county or counties adjoining. No dividends are paid to its stock holders, but they are held for the security of depositors. Skcoxd: IT TAKES CARE OF HOME INTERESTS. It always has money to loan to the people of Lamoille county and of such portions ot adja cent counties as constitute a legitimate field for the investments of this bank. During the panic of 18!)3 no responsible borrower from Lamoille county was refused money on good paper, and. in fact, since its first organization no home borrower has ever been denied a loan, it' the security offered came within the rules of the bank. Third :-TIIE PEOPLE BELIEVE IN IT. During the panic of 1S93 it had the confidence of the depositing public to such an extent that it actually gained several thousand dollars in deposits, while the other savings banks in the state, as a whole, showed a loss of more than a million dollars. Fourth :-IT IS ABSOLUTELY EQUITABLE IN ITS INTEREST RULE. Most banks compute interest from the first of the month only on such deposits as are made on or before the fifth. This bank allows interest from on all deposits made on or before the middle. Quarters commence on the first of January, April, July and September. Fifth : IT IS MANAGED BY MEN WHO BELIEVE IN VERMONT. Men who believe Vermont money should be kept in Vermont to foster Ver mont industries, feeling assured that such loyalty to home interests will com mand, for the bank the patronage not only of those who love Vermont and have her prospprity at heart, but of those who believe that safety is always to be pre ferred to large rates of interest, and desire that their money be invested at home where they may see the security with their own eyes and personally know that the bank is a p tinstaking, careful and conservative steward in the investment and management of the funds entrusted to its care. Sixth: FOUR PER CENT. INTEREST TO DEPOSITORS IS ABSO LUTELY GUARANTEED. If not withdrawn it is compounded semi-annually without any action on the part of the depositor. Seventh :-COMMENCING BUSINESS JANUARY 21, 18S9, the deposits have been as follows : January 1, 18'JO, IOO,7SO.G1 ; January 1, 1891, $1S?,107.89; January 1, 1892, 235.078 37 ; January 1, 1893, 293,22-5. 02 ; January 1, 1891, 318,753.06; May 1,1891, 339,008.28.
