Kindness la never lout on anything no matter how small the object may be. In the poultry yard each day brings iu duties, and each season baa its appropriate lubors. While quality brings the h�t prices, feed will not give quality unless the breed utilizes the foot! to the best advantage. The skunk is the meanest of vermin One skunk has been known to kill three hundred young chickens in a few hours by biting them tmck of the ears, and apparently for pure amusement or meanness, as none of said lot wero mutilated or carried away. Neglected hens, like neglected men, are apt to go on strike. An act has been Introduced into the House of Commons. Canada, designed to fix the weights at which eggs shall be sold in the Dominion. It proves that unless otherwise spo- tion. ' Do not inbrecd. Avoid relation  ship. When lmpro|�crly bred, turkeys nro apt to have crooked brcust bones. Tucker says thut turkeys raised from the same cock and hens will, aftor a feu yours, be liable to have crooked breasts and other deformities. WHEN THE Willi' MUST DEMISED Sometimes a colt is of a stubborn mulish disposition, nnd may lay back his ears at your approach, or turn his heels to kick you. Tito troublo with this colt is, ho has not fear enough of man to properly respect his authority. It would bo "love's labor lust," to try and conquor this follow without the uso of tho whip. Use a spring top whip with a good crnckor, and give him a few sharp cuts nruund tho hind legs next tho body and aponk sharply to him. Make all your actions quickly nnd sharply. The crack of tho whip, affects as much as tho keen cut astonishes him. Don't whip too much just enough to scaro tho bad dlspo  sltion out of him. Never whip over tho body, or go into a pltchod bat  tie nnd whip your horse until his cially agreed upon between tho buyer temper is urousod. as he will fight and the seller, eggs shall � �old by back.

New blood makers stamina; stanv-tnan, produce eggs. When the poultryman learns how much to feed, the value of exorcise, the use of good sharp grit for grinding the feed, the benefits io be derived from warm and clean quarters the evils from overcrowding, and the necessity ot treating promptly the first symptoms of sickness, success becomed more sure, and there will be very Utile need of doctoring. An American journal draws attention to tho wondorful advance of pos ibilitlee for tho arid districts of this continent owing to tho dlscov -ury that much of this land can be farmed with great profit without irrigation. Wo are told that by "dry farming" the wheat bolt has already been moved into eastern Colorado fairly to the foot of the Rockies, and where the line wllUstop no one can predict. These Colorado' dry lands, that had been thought useless except for a little gracing, last year produced an average of twenty-five bushels of wheat to the acre, thus leading the so called wheat states. Tho steam plow is tho chief factor in the miracle- It will plow, pack, harrow, and seod thirty or forty acres a day, at a cost including seed, of less than two dollars per acre. The plowing and seeding are one operation, so that there is no FACTS ABOUT TURKEYSf Large birds realize more per pound in proportion than the small ones. While Incubating the turkey cares very little for food, and only occasionally wants water to drink.

It Is believed that If tho land Is thus cultivated, 'at least five hundred million ncrcs of land west of the Missouri river that have been considered arid and bar  ren may lo transformed without irrigation into enormously productive wheat fields. This new idea In agriculture if it is really as practical as our American contemporary represents should bo a valual.lj (novation in Southern All erta on tho areas that cannot bo rcachod by Irrigation and it could undoubtedly te adopted with profit tn other parts where the rainfall Is variuble.-Kx. HOW TO MAKE FARMINO PAY. Dy Arthur Hives, Penhold, In Saturday News. This is truly an age of competition In every branch of industry; and, in this great agricultural country, of course the fanning industry is by far tho greatest. Tho question is of ton naked, how can wo compete with other couotrlcs, which are so much nearer tho consuming point? I think evoryono will agree, that tho answer will be. either to be ablo to produce a better quality or a grouter quantity; generally by producing the former wo obtain the latter. Take for instance tho farmer who is careful about his crop rot a t lor i; ho will come out away ahead of hisnoigh bor who likes to be able to say how many acres he has In crop. How often a farmor will look at a poor crop in tho Hummer and say, "I will summer fallow or do something for that field next year." Next spring alltheso good resolutions go to tho wind, and he thinks only of getting in as much as he can, with tho result that tho crop is worso than ever and with more weeds. Now wo will tuko oats as an example, as that is tho largest crop grown around here. Often wo find a man putting in oats after barley, noxt year ha wonders how it is that tho grade ot oats is lowered moro on account ot having barley in than any-I thing else. If wo want to get the best. prices for o.ur grain wo must ' produce, what is required. If we are selling oats tho buyer expects oats, not oats, barley and weeds. If by ! cleaning his grain' tho farmer can ' realise two cents per bushel moro, I think it is that farmer's duty to clean it. Why should ho pay frolght on woods which ho does indirectly if shippod through the middleman? Then again we find that the grado is lowerod because the shipment no matter how good, is made up of mixed varieties. Now here is tho remedy. We have branches of tho A.F.A. and there is much that they can do. I would advocate that a I ranch of the A.F.A. agree upon getting this year good seod of not more j than two varieties, say Banner and each fanner sow ion tho best ground enough for his next year's entire ho has) ns much as will glvo hlmnccd crop. I think by following out this method, by .keoping the seed clenn and making every shlpmont of ono variety, wo should secure at least the bout prices going, nnd, wo may bo able to raise the Alberta oats to a still higher standard. -� RHEUMATISM MAKES UFE MISERABLE. A happy homo is tho most valuable possession that is within the reach or mankind, but you cannot onjoy Its comforts if you are suffering from rheumatism. You throw aside business cures when you enter your homo and you can bo relieved from those rheumatic pains also by applying Chamberlain's Pain Balm. One application will glvo you reliof and Ms continued uho for a short time will bring about a permanent cure. For snlo by All Druggists. PUBLIC HO\'OR. There is still honor in tho public life of Canada. This was proved in the Legislature to-day when after a debate on tho Princo Albert election scandal where Donaldson (Consorva -tlvoj was defeated, through tho action of the deputy returning officer in tho far northern polls, having stuffod boxes, was given his seat by the unanimous consent of tho house. Dr. Tytsrnmn (Llbaral), who was declared elected resigned immediately after ho learnod what deputy officer had done. � �- "Provenllca" will promptly check a cold or tho Grippe when takon early or at tho "sneeze" stago.
