The Granger who had raised it Nice Jot of turkeys and had one of them get out when be took them to Market and Fly through a seventy five Dollar plate Glass store window went Home in a state of mind on the Turkey business. The building of a condensed milk factory in any Given locality it mat ters not much where located is the Best of Security that every sum am be made tributary to it will within one year Advance in value to at least per acre.

One of the cleanest farms we Ever saw was one where Nei ther weeds nor anything else would the average woman will find that a dozen Geranium plants of different kinds will give her More satisfaction for Winter House plants than anything else. They will Bloom profusely give plenty of brightness and color will a tend grief and won t die if the Frost gets a nip at them or if she forgets to wafer hem while they Are almost the seemingly Small difference be tween Zero weather in Winter and that of 20 below Zero settles the Fate of a Large Hue of.

A Young Man who lives in u Good fees country where there is neither Erta Merv nor choose factory wants to know How much a Small Creamery Plant would Cost and How Many Novi 3 he would have to have to support it and make it pay. A building with modern equipment would Cost from to and he should have not less than goo cows in sight before face puts a Dollar into the Plant in order to make it pay. Trying to run a Creamery without cows has brought men to grief All Over the country the unrestricted economic and com per Clyl Liberty which Hab up to this time been the Pride and glory of Lila to carry and its making As the first Power in the Ivorid is slowly but surely Derc loping n system of commercial Twat tyranny which bodes nothing but and which some Day the american people will get after rough shod. Men used to be slaves by the compulsion of actual ownership they May be slaves torn the less because of economic conditions which Taliej Hare allowed to them while they slept not for Long will the american people continue.

Horse flesh is cheaper than leg Power. The Money the speculators made on cold storage eggs the past season has been Liu Goly ii ii to pay the losses sustained in them on cold storage butter. The Creamery separator calf and the farms up orator calf May be first cousins but is a general thing to one would Ever guess they were in any Way related by their looks. Meet stations show that the largest crops of Corn Are obtained when the planter drops an average of three and one third kernels to the Hill. On Many a farm a seventy five Dollar plug horse May be made to do one third the work of a forty Dollar hired Man and the horse won t talk Back either or be chasing around three nights in the week after the girls. In Many Western localities where the Bolo has been tried for the first time the past Winter the builders of the silo have been wondering Why Tobej were to very slow to adopt such a useful and valuable Aid to their Stock business. The vitality of nearly All seed Corn staved from the crop of 1903 is Low. And there is More need for a thorough test ing of nil seed to be planted than for Many years. The exact per cent of germination should be determined be fore planting. _ As a result of the new order of the railroads withdrawing free transportation Home to shippers of Stock there win be grangers making the acquaintance of old friends in the City and More Able to Bank the net proceeds of the Sale of then consignments of Stock. Thousands of Farmers " can greatly lighten their burdens by Selling one half of their farms. Any Man is land poor who owns More acres than he can profitably work under a modern sys tem of agriculture. Hate to let it go Well you will have to let All go some Daj. The one year renter is the Bane of Western agriculture. His Brief tenancy precludes anything like a systematic rotation of crops the keeping of Siock to consume the products of the farm the growing of a Clover crop and inevitably injures a continued process of soil robbing and land skinning with but Small profit to himself and the owner of the land. Ton May greatly increase the yield of your potato crop by cultivating hem every third after the Plant is six inches High until the blossoms appear. This is especially True if the weather is of All dry during that period while surface cultivation May profitably be continued so Long As the tines remain Green. As a Rule the potato crop does not get one half the cultivation it deserves. This is not a new suggestion but none the less valuable on that account. If you have a dozen or More pigs to feed this season by All Means son a Patch of rape for them and you will find that it will take the place of a lot of much More Espe Nahe feed. The rape Patch should be proportioned in Bize to the number of to be kept not Over one acre for Twenty Small a the Velnp of thai Plant consists in keeping it Well fed Down. If it is allowed to grow a foot High it becomes Tough and unpalatable. Slany varieties of our fruits Are bound to set More fruit than the tree can possibly mature without endangering the life and vitality of the tree. While nature will ordinarily do Tome thinning herself in such cases it if quite common that the Best thing which can be done by the owner is to give the tree a vigorous thinning. Tvo know that this is not just the right Way but where time and help Are tors we just take a pliable switch and where a tree is carrying an overload of Foulag fruit we just whip half or two thirds of it off when it is half grown. It is harsh treatment but Effe tue. It is not a Little amusing to note the Gravity and profundity with which Many newspaper men discuss every the varying phases of the ground hog signs As determining the length of the Winter when All Knop the question of whether or not the rodent sees his Shadow on the 2d of february has just As Urich bearing of future weather As All the rest of the and Petty superstitions which have come Down to m from tiie Days when agriculture was in occult science dependent upon Dinar changes of the Barba a whole Brood of luny theories and be la tvs that nun with All his Progress is Loti.

Now Hern is the sum of shoo per year or the Hequn Lent of what would to counted As a pretty Good salary for a town Man obtained by the income which he enjoys year in and year out and of White but mail account is made by most Farmers in estimating the returns of their business. It makes lots of difference whether the Good Easto the milk House and skim off a pint of Rich Cream or take a Dozer fish eggs from the Henhouse or on a Well kept Garden for Nice fresh vegetables and fruits or catch a couple of Spring chickens for dinner or Cut into a Nice Home cured Bam in the smokehouse or dig into n Jar of homemade Sau Sage or take her pick of a lot of Choice canned fruit or whether she has to order All these things by Telephone from the town grocer. It is a fact that nearly All of the town Man s salary has to go for these very things and this is Why it is that the Mechanic the clerk the labourer and the Small trades Man rarely Ever can do much better one year with another than make both ends meet.
