He imust each year face now problems, and with years of experience back of him hle must still be wide-awake with now methods to moot new conditions in order to ensuro success, Manure fromnt horses is worth twioe as much as that from cows and pigs. Givo the horses plenty of oat straw, and lot this becomo fully aturated with their urine before throwing out. This makes the besoat of all manures for all purposo, but this should not b? al. owed to heat and burn in piles.

OItDERlt AND SYSTEM, Many a shortb out might be made on the farn by having roads and patha where most noeded, by having them loss rambling than many farmers have them, by using gatoes instead of slip-rails, by doing away with fonces whenever poa. siblo, by doing more horgo and machine work instead of hand labour, by making loads both ways when hauling, by toaohing horses to step lively when reo quired, by teaching yoursolf theo amo trick by rising early, getting hands to their work promptly by talking loss, by thinking and reading more, and by p?ansu ning work days, weeooks, months, and even years aohead, Many a farmer ij to-day working at a disadvantago and unsuccessfully because of his unsys teonatic ways of doing his work, iHe may have good ideas and work earnostly, and yet fail simply becauso ho laeks sytdom, and by laoking system ho is surely and foolishly wasting onorgy which, if well directed, might produce far differont results.

MELBOURNE, (From our own Corrospondont), MAItKED PEfiSONALITIEB, Psyhobologists have labored hard but ineffectually in the endeavour to determine what the peculiar factor in human nature is that enables a man in any given walk of life to rise so high above others in the same walk. The careless non.thlnker ascribes such sue. cess to luck, Far more than that elusive element must go to the making of the preoeminent individual, In the bookmaking profession, it may be perhaps granted that luck plays no un. important part in the piling up of a fortune, There are not ta few of his colleagues who say, for instance, that Mr, Sol Green has beeoon one of the luckiest men on the turf, There are many others, however, who know Mr. Green intimately, who are able to toll you authoritatively that this marked personality of the Australian turf is one of our shrewdest and most enter prising citizons, that the acumen he has displayed in breeding, buying, and racing horses has also been carried into lar...
