When a Little human machine or a Large one goes wrong nothing is so important As the selection of food which will always bring it around again. My Little baby boy fifteen months old. Pneumonia then came brain and no sooner had he got Over these than he began to Cut Teeth and being so weak he Vas frequently thrown into Conn Illions says a Colorado Mother. "1 decided a change might help so took him to Kansas City for a Tissi. When we got there he was so very weak when he would cry he would sink away and seemed like he would Jdie. When i reached my sister s horns she said immediately that we must feed him grape nuts and although i Ilau Heyer Ticu life Yoou to Aquia and for a few Days gave him just Tae juice of grape nuts and milk. He got stronger so quickly we were soon feeding him the grape nuts itself and in a wonderfully Short time he fattened right up and became Strong and Well. That showed me something Worth knowing and when later on my girl came i raised her on grape Kuts and she is a Strong healthy baby and has been. Ton will see from the Little i Send you what a Strong Chubby youngster the by is now but he did t look anything like that is fore we found this nourishing food.

Waste must be stopped. Many Farmers pail because they do hot practice any National sys tem of fertilizing. On the average the american Farmer wastes each year More than enough to keep his family. Enormous wastes Are going on in Many ways but the greatest one is the waste of farm Fertility. Preserve what Fertility is already in the soil and put More in it. It May be that some Farmers do not know the value of manure As some Are giving it away in order to get it out of the Way. Others Are burning the Straw stacks instead of using the Straw for . Would increase the value of the manure. I know this from observation. Farmers waste much of the value of manure by putting it in piles in the barnyard and letting it take the weather for months. If the big Money in asparagus. Demand a. O Cuccu a i Civ 01 i juju a great part of the Fertility finds its Way into it and probably one half of its value is lost. I think that if some of our Farmers could visit among the Rural population of Germany and note their methods for saving manure most of them would take a Lessen Home with them. Most of the German Farmers Are successful and their Success seems to be due to the care Ful saving and applying of Fertility. Why cannot we Stop this waste by saving and applying All the manure by keeping More live Stock by cultivating our soil properly and retaining the ele ments of Fertility and by studying the subject and applying the thoughts gained we must Stop this waste we want our land to be kept in a High state of e j. Waterstripe in farm and fireside. Give the boys poultry. One Way of inducing. Children to work contentedly and happily on the old farm. As usual there is loud complaint from farriers that the children brought up of the farm Are getting uneasy and want to try their wings elsewhere. This is not to be wondered at when these Young people hear and read of what is going on. In the world. The Monotony of country life seems unbearable to them especially when from the farm they obtain Only plenty of hard work the Ioco they eat and the clothes the Wear. True one May say that is about All anyone gets out of life but if we can plan some Way by which the Young people can make a Start for themselves e Spicl More contented. The Indianapolis news thick that poultry offers a Way of trying out the feeling of the Young folks at email expense. Give them a Chance to raise poultry and have the proceeds for their own use and in a year or two they will have become reconciled to country Hie and be willing to make it their future or j they will have shown their utter Lack of adaptability for it. In which Case the Best thing for them and for the Parent is to let them leave the farm and take up the work for which they Are better fitted but Don t lose your grasp on the Young people without first giving them a Chance to do for themselves on the farm and show what is in them. For in steadily and the mar Ket 0ood. Most Farmers would think an acre for manure would be an extravagant outlay of Money. But Down in new Jer sey they spend that much for stable manure at a ton and consider it a Good investment. Naturally they do not raise Corn or wheat or Oats on that sort they raise asparagus and get from to per acre returns from it. Experiments from four different kinds of fertilizer show that stable manure brings the largest returns. The differ ent fertilizers used were As follows manure per acre Complete Fertil Izer Complete fertilizer Bone and Potash Complete fertilizers Bone and Potash and nitrate of soda there is a constantly increasing de Mand for asparagus the Market Good Ana is Likely to for years ret hundreds of Farmers who own Good land near Large cities go on year after year Rais ing Corn Oats and other crops which yield them a Bare living. Asparagus is a sure crop a sure Sale and always profitable. The soil should be slowed in the fall and sub soiled then turn double fur rows five feet apart and place the roots five inches below the surface. Strey about one half the fertilizer in the Bot Tom of the Furrow Mil it with the soil and place the remainder on top after the roots Are planted. Manure Nan be applied after the. Plants have started to grow with Good advantage. Place the roots about 30 inches apart in the rows. Before the so Wii starts a tis Spring work the ground thoroughly with disc and Harrow and then cover the rows slightly with the single cultivator shovel set to throw dirt outward. Cultivate every ten Days thereafter and keep the soil in Fine condition. If bleached asparagus is desired throw a Ridge of soil Over the Row As soon As growth is started and Cut As soon As the shoots show through this Ridge a length of Sis or seven inches. If Green asparagus is wanted cover with Only about three inches of soil and Cut the shoots four or five inches. From 25 to 30 cuttings per year can be taken from a Good asparagus bed.

New Strawberry culture commonly accepted report has it that Good crops have been raised in barrels. The method of Strawberry culture shown in the illustration has been successful and profitable. Tight Iron bound barrels Are used with All but four of the hoops removed. Holes Are bored through the Staves at proper distances strawberries in Barbel. As shown plants Are set in these holes and the barrels filled with soil to the top. The average yield of berries is Over one half Bushel per barrel. The greatest advantages claimed for this method Are that no mulch or cultivation is necessary that the berries Are always clean and from Sand and Are far More readily picked than when grown in the usual Way. A tile is placed in the Center of the barrel As it is filled soil. This permits an even distribution of water from top to Bottom an abundance of which should be sup plied at All times. Plants which go to sleep. Some plants go to sleep every night. The Well known sensitive Plant or Mimosa in Daylight opens its fragile leaves which Are hard at work eating absorbing the carbonic acid of the air into Plant food. At night the Mimosa sleeps and digests what it has eaten and the leaves fold up double against each other the Stem droops and the Leaf is Limp and apparently dead. Sim Ilar to this is another Plant found As a Weed All Over the country East of the Rocky mountains known As the Partridge pea or Large flowered Sensi Tive pea.

Raising goldfish is a Hobby of said Rourk and a Short time ago after culling them out i found i had a number that were not of much account. The Good ones i kept for Breeding purposes. I generally give weaklings away but the thou rat came to me that perhaps they would be Good for Black Bass As the last two or three times i had gone fishing i had had Fisherman s Luck then i had tried All lands of bait artificial and otherwise but without Success. So with eight Lively goldfish in a tin of water and other bait in Case that should fail i started for my old fishing ground at Bristol a. After setting a boat i quietly dropped my line Over the Side with a goldfish squirming on the Hook and before i could say Jack away went my line with a Jerk. Within a minute i had landed a big four Pound Bass and when i placed my Landing net under him another three Pounder rushed at the goldfish s Tail protruding from the other fellow s Mouth. When i lifted the two Bass up the water under the net seemed to be alive with fish. Within a hair hour i caught 17 Black Bass ranging from two to four pounds each this with eight goldfish two at every dip of the net and one by jumping clean into the boat after the Hook. After 1 had used up my precious goldfish i tried other bait but the fish would t bite. It was nearly nine o clock in the evening when i reached Home and j after leaving the fish on a table. I entered the Kitchen. A minute later i i heard a the Erk in splash nor in my Seffl non tub. Thinking it was the cat. I hurried out with a Broom. I was rather j surprised to see several Bass going Over i the tub after More goldfish. This is j a mrs. Weisslitz president of the Man woman club of Buffalo n.
