HOUSEHOLD THE FLIGHT OF SUMMER. (J. Fred Santee. Ridgefield.) When Summer's reign is almost o'er, And Autumn winds are wailng— When all the land, from shore to shore, The purple haze is veiling— When leaves exchange their green for gold In myriads none may number, Old Nature then her wealth untold Yields up; and sinks in slumber. When songr-birds to the Southland fly, While Autumn winds are wailing— When trees" proclaim the winter nigh, Their leaves e'er downward sailing— When mystic sounds are in the air. And fields with grain are teeming— When drowsy bees hum everywhere, Old Nature starts her dreaming. WOMEN ON THE FARM. No more popular topic ever appears on the programs of the Farmers' Na tional Congress than something of es pecial interest to the farmers' wives. We Arc Trying Hard To find students whom we can train to a high degree of efficiency to fill some exceptionally good po sitions.

Never Get Out of Touch with Seattle Vehicle & Implement Co. 3320 First Avenue, SEATTLE, WASH. At the session to open in Oklahoma City, October 17, "The Financial Af fairs of the Farmer's Wife," will be discussed by Mrs. Katherine Stahl, of Moro, 111. She is peculiarly fitted by training and experience to handle this subject as an expert. Her paper will be one of the best in the whole series, which will include such important mat ters as farmers' organizations, govern ment reclamation service, and agri- culture in the public schools. A pro gram of this nature will be truly na tional, and in keeping with the meet ing of a farmers' national congress. The session opens on Thursday, which will prevent the necessity of any Sun day travel, either in going or return ing. It will also give the delegates a day of rest in the middle of the ses sions. Several of the Oklahoma cler gymen will prepare especial sermons for the 20th of October, on account of the large number of delegates to the congress present in the city. The at tractions of Oklahoma City and sur rounding country, and the efforts of the board of agriculture and other peo ple of the place to make the visit in teresting, will make this a red-letter meeting of the congress. There will be a chance to visit the new state fair, to see some of the best farms of the locality, to study a city which has sprung from nothing to an up-to-date place, with all modern conveniences, in eighteen years. Very rarely has a session of the congress offered so great an opportunity to study the country in which we live, its wonderful re sources, and the marvelous develop ment during recent years. One will be a broader citizen for attending this session of the Farmers' National Con gress. When the Children Grow Up. "When my children were in my arms and clinging to my skirts, I looked forward to the time when they would be grown up, and dreamed of the many things that I should accom plish, and the wonderful things I should do. I thought I would be free from anxiety then. No more sleepless nights, I could rest —rest —rest. But not so. The saying, 'When the chil dren are little they step on your toes, but when they grow up they step on your heart' is too true. When they were small and in the home I knew they were safe and happy, but as they grow up and go out into the world my heart-strings are pulled this way and that, and I long to take them in my arms again." Thus spoke a mother who had brought up a large family of boys and girls. They were all steady, honest, and industrious ones, but she knew the temptations on every side that would beset them, and she felt the importance of their being rightly settled in life, both in the busi ness life and in domestic life. She also realized that while they were loving and respectable they had opinions and plans of their own, and did not always accept hers and fol low her advice. This, while she ac cepted it as according to nature and inevitable, was a source of trouble and caused many heartaches. These things must be faced by parents and faced bravely, while they hope and trust that the seeds which they have planted when their children were little will prove true and be unmixed with tares. Planting the Orchard. (By M. J. Wessels.) The thousands of trees being in spected reminds me that they will also be converted very soon into or chards. The old saying that a good beginning is a good ending is es pecially true in the starting of an orchard. No doubt many a person who expects to start his orchard in the spring may not have any knowledge in this particular line of business. By them a few suggestions of a general outline will be appreciated. First, the holes should be sufficiently large so that when the tree is placed in the center it will not crowd the roots. The soil is then scattered over the roots occasionally shaking the tree by a slight quick up and down motion, to let the soil roll in among the roots and under the crown, and oftentimes it is necessary with the hand to raise the upper roots above the soil of the lower. When the roots are well cov ered, tramp the soil with the feet and at the same time hold the trunk of the tree in the hand, slightly pressing downward so that the roots may not tear loose from the main stem by be ing pressed into the soft earth. This will also bring the crown of the roots in closed contact with the soil. Then finish by filling, if anything a little higher than the surrounding ground, THE RANCH *^^^^^^^^' ■■ I'll i m 'J T^rp^2v^^B)'jiiKiw t■ 2 I£~ Murder direct from our Stove Factoi^^^*«^^B^j*_3Ea pfjflßy -.-^AV. -*~>V'^*TB^ "The beet in the world."
