One does not need the services of an expensive landscape Gardener to make ones Lawn a thing of Beauty. Of course thick Well rolled and Well cropped turf is the prime necessity but there is always needed some bit of Dolor to accentuate the Eye resting Beauty of the Long sweep of Green. Here is the Way one ingenious worn Jan secured a Centrepiece Sward i according to popular mechanics she dug up an old umbrella from the Attie Cut away the faded silk Over simple ornament for Lawn. Ing ran a piece of thin wire through the top of each rib taking a turn around each Eye so As to keep the ribs apart at regular intervals and then sunk the handle deep into the ground in a Small Circle Cut out of the Sod in the Middle of the Lawn. Then she planted some Sweet peas in a variety of colors and now she has a Josephs coat Mound of color that is an absolute Delight. And obeying the old adage it be More Sweet peas you pick the More you la have a she has her vases All through the House filled All the time. The valuable turnip. We rth growing if Only for its effect on Dairy cows. White the real food value of turnips is consider somewhat Low. They Are wonderful appetizers especially for Dairy cows not ouly toning up their systems but increasing the flow of milk. Then there Are several tempting dishes for the table that can be formed from turnips and by Stoi tog a goodly Supply of them for Winter their use will save considerable the higher priced products both around the feed stalls and table. Turnips for Winter storage should not be sown till in july from the 10th to the 20th, or even a few Days later will not be too late. Where they Are sown earlier than this the hot weather causes them to become Strong and Pithy hut if sown As above stated they mature when the weather is Cool or which greatly enhances their flavor gives them a firm solid flesh and adds to their keeping qualities. A Rich Sandy Loam or fresh Sod soil is Best adapted to turnip raising and they May he sown either broadcast or drilled. If sown broadcast it. May be done just before a Shower and there will Beu be no necessity for covering the seed As the raindrops will do the work better a Light covering being All that is required. If the seeds Are drilled one can arrange so the plants May he cultivated by hand the rows being placed about eighteen inches apart. Put in plenty of seed at the time of drilling and thin out the plants then they come up till they Are from three to four inches apart thus giving them Ampie room to grow. A Homestead.

Never get fhe idea in your head that drugs and health Are inseparable for in most Case it will by found that what we keep out of the pigs stomach has More to do with its health than what we put in. Blackberries Are very prolific and Ripen at the time they can be economically gathered and marketed.

Best Way to sit it la to try it on Small Patch. 1 Lime seems to be needed on part of most farms. It corrects sourness mellows heavy soils helps Light soils to retain moisture favors the growth of Clover and Alfalfa and checks the increase of some Plaut diseases. The most certain Way according to professor Brooks of the Massachusetts Experiment station to find out a bet Era a Lime will help the soil is to try it in a Small plot in a Field to be tested. Apply Twenty pounds of fresh selected Lime to two Square rods. Beets Are a Good test crop As they grow better upon n limed plot if the a Oil needed Lime. An average of about one ton of Lime to an acre will usually be enough. It can be used at any season when the land is not occupied by crops and when it can be slowed. It May be planted broadcast and worked into the soil with a Harrow. Professor Brooks has been looking up various sources of Lime in new England markets and he finds that it varies considerably in Cost and desirability. Quicklime is really the cheapest form because when buying it the purchaser does not have to pay for water that is taken up when shaking Lime. One Hundred pounds of quicklime contains As much essential Lime As 132 pounds of slaked Lime thirty two pounds being moisture from the air and it contains As much As-178 pounds of raw Limestone. Lime can be slaked in Small heaps by applying just Vvs ter enough to wet the lumps using about two Pai Fuls of water to 100 pounds of Lime. After a few Days it will have crumbled to a powder. Most Farmers slake the Lime before applying As the a slaked Lime is very disagreeable to use even with a manure spreader protested with Burlap. 1 finely ground Limestone or Marl works Well on Light soils but ground Limestone costs More for the results obtained As compared with quicklime. Sometimes refuse Lime from tanneries is a Yery cheap source of Lime and it can usually be had for the hauling. Make farmhouse fit.

In our great cities land is dear and houses must be adapted to Small areas. Architects have studied How to get the most House on a limited space because the Man of moderate Means cannot afford to buy a big lot. City houses Are built on these condensed plans and Are very Well adapted to such conditions. But we Are sorry to see that some of these City House plans Are being taken int amp the country. When set into the wide space of a farm they look out of Harmony with their surroundings. The farmhouse should have All the comforts and conveniences of the City House but it should not look like the City House. It should be so designed a comfortable dwelling. As to fit into its surroundings. The old fashioned farm Home with its air of Comfort and repose is in better taste than the modern Bob tailed City House is on the farm. Farmhouses can be tasteful and adapted to their location without being expensive and it pays to see that they Are so. A tasteful Home has a Sale value in the country just As it has it anywhere and Farj houses should be built with this idea in View. Above All this however is the pleasure of living in a tasteful country Home one that is adapted to its purpose and fitted to its location. There is a satisfaction Here that is not reckoned in dollars but is Worth trying to Stockman and Farmer. A Good Chick Foed. For a Good cake for Chicks As Well As fowls and also for dogs take about a quart of Cornmeal a pint of wheat bran and a pint of flour. With sufficient sour milk to make Batter. Add two teaspoonfuls of soda stirred up in a Little sour milk and Salt to taste. The Batter must not be made too thin nor should the cakes be allowed to scorch. One big cake Laid on the floor each Day will make the Little Chicks grow beyond belief. Farm philosophy. Education is our Hope for better agriculture.
