Water As a crop has not received the attention from Farmers which it deserves according to experts who have investigated the matter. In their opinion there Are Many districts in this country in which profitable trades in bottled water could be worked up at Little Cost to the Farmers provided of course they have never failing Springs of pure water from which to Supply the demand. A great Many cities Are complaining of the inferior Quality of the water furnished by the City waterworks and the coming of the a water Wagon Laden with bottles the contents of which would be guaranteed pure and wholesome by chemical analysis would be a Welcome sight. A recent Case in which a Good Biu Fuess in bottled water has been est Abl shed is that of a farm two ways of fighting the pastur Weed described one u unusual. One Spring Witch grass began to thu up flaunt All the per show in a Clover pasture. It was Alne mave 3 Ria or near wet season and we keep it. Down says a Wisconsin correspondent of the american . The next season i put some ground into cabbage just a Little cabbage along where this quack was and there is one of the drops that will help to clean the land by the no Judt of thorough cultivation of Tho ground. I Hoed it out All summer Lons Clear on up to the 1st of september and last season i put a strip of porn again on tills same ground in or Der to kill the quack out if there was any left but i failed to and any there at All and it was cleaned out just by working it thoroughly with the cabbage crop the year previous. A somewhat unusual method of fighting Witch grass was described in a Wisconsin Farmers mooting. The infested land was heavily manured in the Winter or Spring and the manure harrowed two or three times to work it Down among the roots and stimulate rapid growth which brings Tho roots nearer the surface.

Barutta. \ bottling House Fob Spring water. Or living within easy hauling distance of a Small Pennsylvania City. The City is supplied with water from the Susquehanna River which at this Point is polluted by sewage and other offensive material. Although the water is filtered by the City Many persons consider it not fit to drink. The Farmer has a Spring of beautifully Clear pure water. He bottles it and conveys it in crates to the City Many of the people of which Are glad to pay the moderate Price asked for the water. The Trade is profitable to the owner of the Spring although he has gone to the expense of putting in a pump to draw the water into the House where the bottles Are tilled and a sterilizer a for washing the bottles. The Spring itself is walled boxed and guaranteed dirt proof. The picture shows one View of the House ii which the water is bottled. The nights Are Long and this it a Good time to Call the members of the family and hired hands together after the evening meal and discuss the plans for the year. The profitable cow. V a cow most produce about 4,000 pounds of milk and 100 pounds of butter fat to pay for her feed and labor. This is the dead line 5,000 pounds milk $10 profit 8,000 pounds milk $40 profit four times As much. Ten cows averaging 8.000 pounds of milk Are As profitable As forty cows producing 5.000 pounds. The Cost of keep in creases but $35 per cow from 2,000 to 10.000 pounds of milk Given yet the income increases $115, or Over three times As w. J. Fraser University of Illinois. Ant traps Are the latest. Trapping ants is a new method of elimination of insect posts which the department of agriculture experts Are watching. In Louisiana and California the Argentine ant. The most persistent Ever known by the biologists of the government Lias been damaging horticulture by carrying scale insects from infested to Unm ested Trees and in other ways and All anti ant campaigns have so far failed As to this species. Your wife is your partner and when you buy a new farm implement to lighten your labor or enable you to produce better results you should always do As much for her and her work. If you can to do both look after the partner first. De Horning Chute. Chutes like the one shown in this Cut taken from farm and fireside can be constructed of two Inch lumber throughout excepting for the two upper pieces on the sides which Are 1 by 16. A stanchion is provided at the front end with Loose pins at Bottom which de Horning Chute. Can be moved quickly and the animal driven out in front if desired. After the animal is fastened into stanchion a rope run around its neck and nose is fastened to the Windlass and drawn taut. Bolts should be used throughout and clips on a the crosspieces to insure strength. Mis frankness won. The Lato senator Dolliver said that in politics it paid to be Frank and honest with the people. A my predecessor in the Senate a he said a was John a gear. On one occasion the prohibition spirit was run Nung High and a Public meeting was held with a Well known Quaker As chairman. Gear was invited to the meeting. He accepted the invitation. The old Quaker called him to the platform and said a a a we learn that thou Dost not belong to any Temperance society and also that thou Dost drink liquor at thy discretion. Is this True a a a every word of it is True a replied gear a but did you Ever hear of my doing anything dishonourable a a a a Najr or. Gear a replied the old Quaker chairman a nay we have never heard anything else to thy discredit. Thy frankness is More to be commended than thy habits. But thou Hast not lied to us and we will support a and they did a said senator Dol liver a and elected him st for. Begins a to Bloom is reckoned As it weakest stage when in is most easily destroyed. It is then slowed under using a Chain to turn under the tops and then carefully Bury All the grass. The Field is then harrowed and disk harrowed the Harrow being set Over so As to slightly loosen the upper soil. Then buckwheat is harrowed in two bushels per acre. It was found that the buckwheat will keep Down All the Witch grass surviving. And the Little that is left will be killed if the Field is slowed and left in sir iti Ehard Steele explained Why his countrymen made bulls a a a tis the effect of the climate sir. If an englishman were born in Ireland he would make As Many a said he. It is not every one who knows a Bull when he sees her. It May be no butt but merely a Blunder a a Belse As the French have it. To make sure that we have the True criterion let its first set Down a few of the genuine orthodox Irish kind he built the Wall wider than it was High so that when it fell Down it when the Giss should be higher than it was wide.

The land needs thought and of the Best but who shall give it if not the owner growing watermelons. Directions for cultivation of thie luscious big bodied fruit. Watermelons Are not As extensively grown in the North As Muskmelon. This is one of the few fruits that have no valuable byproducts As its juice cannot be converted Ink it vinegar nor can it like the Cantaloupe be distilled into Brandy. The seed May be sown directly into the Hills. About Twenty seeds should be pushed Down pointed end first in each Hill. This sounds like lots a Good specimen. Work but it is quickly done. In the North it is customary to sow the seed in boxes and transplant to the Field. It is Well to use some quickly available fertilizer so that Young plants can get an Early Start the Hills should be about ten feet apart each Way but some of the smaller varieties May be planted As close As 6 by 8. The Watermelon is so easily grown that every Home Garden May raise a Supply. There is a firm fleshed variety known As the Citron Melon which is valuable for preserving. Orchard and Garden. Some Orchards have soil Fertility but need spraying some Are sprayed but need pruning and so on. Find out what it is that is limiting the Orchards productivity. Winter is one of the Best times of Tho year for transplanting Trees. Take them up with a Large Ball of Frozen Earth about their roots. The Frozen Ball of Earth is a perfect Protection to a mall and tender roots. When the thaw comes see that the Grapevine trellis is put into Nice condition. Straighten posts tighten and fasten wires tie up the vines remove and Burn Brush. To make chrysanthemums Bushy and compact Pinion the branches Back from time to time. Dig out and Burn All dead and badly diseased fruit Trees. Tut the ashes in the Hole where the tree stood before resetting the Trees mix a few shove Fuls of Well rotted manure with tha. Soil. This will accelerate the growth of the Young Trees. French Bull is usually nothing More than a betide. Still French bulls exist Len Bishop and count of Lesieux wrote to the Duchess of Brissac As follows a Madame knowing How fond you Are of red partridges i Send you herewith half a dozen. Three of them Are Gray and one is a Woodcock. You will find this letter in the Bottom of the a Frenchman used a Large Stone Jar for a Pillow explaining that it was not hard because he had stuffed it full of Hay. T the very Best French bulls Are acted not spoken. The Duke de st Simon relates that a lady lying ill was much disturbed by the ringing of the Church Bells. To Deaden the noise her Lover had the Street in front of her House Laid with Straw. A spoken Bull in French is Apt to be something different from the Irish variety something More like a betide As has been said. And it is Ditl cult to retain the flavor in translation.

If by the mercy of god it had lasted for another half hour we should All have gone to Paradise from which May god deliver us. Whether you receive this letter or not please advise me in either Here is a portuguese Bull. In offering a Reward for the recovery of the Ecru a of a drowned Man his relatives remarked that the deceased might be identified if found by a slight impediment in his speech. After much research it has been so far impossible to discover a genuine Spanish Bull but Here is a dutch Bull a the pig had no Marks on his ears except a Short and Here is a German Bull a Der Oahu Der Zeit Der Ulle Ohranen tro Knet wird a Eli uber Diese Sache gras Jacbsen Lassen a the tooth of time that wipes away All tears will permit grass to grow Over this matter also. Blunders in English speech Are not uncommon.

There is none of the flavor of the famous definition of Salt by the Irish Schoolboy a Salt is that which makes your potatoes taste Nasty if you done to put it even the Best of the foreign bulls in latin i queues evoke the suspicion that they Are Mere translations from Irish originals. The Dittfu the germans and perhaps the English May have the genuine article at times. No distinctively american bulls have emerged from the Long research that is the foundation of these few paragraphs a new York Sun. Tha louvre. The louvre dates away Back to the reign of Dagobert in 628. In 1204 it was a prison and in 13g4 was made into a Library. The new building was begun by Francis i. In 152s and enlarged and adorned by successive Kings principally by Louis Xiv. But it was Napoleon i. Who gave the louvre its real glory. Turning it into a museum Napoleon deposited in it the finest collection of paintings statues and Art treasures known in the world. The magnificent buildings of the new louvre were begun by Napoleon i. And completed by Napoleon Iii. About 1857. Not an inviting Ideal.
