As It is ncarhiK the time of year to store potatoes for the coming season, iny cxiwrienoe may be of intcrt-st to your rcatlei-s. In my tests of many ways of keeping ps .so much from warm or cold. If in a big pile and covered light enough for \v.akN,i> weather in winter the frost may c^tch them Ijofore wo know it. But whet* in a narrow pit, as t^^at iyeen do.scriil>etl, the tenipera-^.u^ia of the earth on t,h.e sides of the pit will have a great ihlhjcucio on the temperature of the potatuea, Of course the pit can )w luD|f and deep enough to put in as many potatoes as desired, and not interfere with the keeping qualities in the least. Select a slight elevation and sandy soil if pos sible, so as to make reasonably sure of o dry bottom in the pit. My way to construct the pH is to dig place fhe length wanled to hold the desired number of bushels and the width stated above. In order to make sure that the weight of the roof will not make the sides cave in, set a row of comnioo fence posts a-longside the wall, about four feet apart will do, on either side, so a stringer can be placed on the, top of the posts just even with the top of the ground on each side but do not board up the sides as you lose the effect of the earth to a large extent, in keeping, the potatoes cool. Then ordinary fence posts wiH> do to cover with, as they are the right length to put on crosswise, and make a good strong support for the heavy, roof. Some slough hay or any sort of litter will do to put on the posts to prevent the dirt from rattling through between them. Slough hay makes the best Mtter for the pur pose as it \asIs better underground than most anything else. Place about tv^o feet of dirt at the edges of the pit, and enough higher in tjio middle to make a good sized vatter shed. Then fct the dirt freezie good and hard; it will take a lot of frost to go through two feet of earth. Af-, ter it ig well frozen, if there is snow on it it will be all the Iwtiter. Next put on some stable manure, horse manure is l>est to prevent the frost going through to the potatoes. It more snow falls uut on moi-o manure but not so much at a tjime os to cause heating, or it wili molt the snow, and this Mable to draw . tlie frost out of the dirt roof, which 1 aim to avoid, as the frozen dirt needed .to keep the potatoes, and can be rc'taiivud until very late in summer. You wil,! notice that the manure servos two purposes. It prevents the frost, going through to the potatoes and also holds the frost in' n,ci the roof, which st-rves to make a regular, refrigerator of your potato pit. Ry this airangoment the walls and roof keeps the potatoes or other ve-gietables so cool that they can bo kept in the best condition. 1 huvo kept potatoes till August follpwing Barley Alfalfa, Total Signed Tp..... -4- Sectipn,,.,, Polieict that do not Pay.

Po� I heart in hundred is, In IV _j i-o.st on past accomplish, incnts. Kvery act of making good is un incentive to further attompt.s in Iho same diroction. The i)ast, therefore, givi'S iiu|Jotus in the pre.sent, nnd strength for the cln.\s that are to come. 1'he man who makes good is always in (leniand. He need not worry about positions. If, through necessity, hi> must make a change, other n>on lin the same line aix; only too glad to give, him eniiiloyinent. Theixi is onl.y one class of jH-'ople who should be compelled to hunt for work-those young men who have not yet had opportulviiy to make good and show tht'ir worth to employers who will a|)preciate their ability in the work tliat is congenial to their tastes. The majority of men who knock about from pillar to post niv men who foiled to make good in the days when the currents of life (lowetl svuft ly in their veins. Every once in a while you hear of a man of sixty and upward called to the suiwrintendency of some business establishment, or tcndei-cd a position whei-e brains are requiixid rather than mu.scles. Such a call is a living witness to the truth. In the days of youth he made good. When you hear of men complaining that they have no chance, explaining they are life's unfortunates, sitting down and lotting children support them, you may hang it on your walla as a truth that they have wasted life been querulous, insubordinate, impractical, or have not used their brains for the men for whom they worked in the days of opportunity. Inhere is no necromancy about life! It proceeds on definite and proscribed rules, oteys laws, and accomplishes practical results. He who obeys life's law need not fear the long, cold, barren, and unproductive years between sixty and eighty. Take time to study the lives of men who have not made good. The man who makes good knows that his employer has a right to every minute of hi� time, who works in that spirit never t�iU to make good. t AWAY I cannot lay, and I wilj not say That he is dead.-He is just away t With a cheery smile, and a'wavt of the hand. He has wandered into an unknown Uod. And left us dreamibg how very (air It needs must be since he lingers there. And you-O you, who the vlldest yearn For the old time step and the glad return,- Think of him faring on as dear In the low of There as the love of Here; �And loyal still, as he gave the blows Of his warrior's strength to his country's foes.- Uild and gentle, as he was brave,- When the sweetest love o( bis life he gave To simple things:-Where the violets grew ^ Purts as the eyes they were likened to. The touches of his hands have strayed As reverently as his lips have prayed; When the Iibtle brown thrush that hnrshl.v chiri-od Was clear to hira as the mocking bird; And ho pitied ns much as a man in A writhing liouoy-bee wot v|''th rain- poin Think of him still as the same, I say Ho is not dead-he is just away ! -Ja mes" Wh it comb K Hey.
