DONE MANURE. n Wilhat the Value of Bones Depends as Mlanuve. The value of Lones as manure do etds first ul:on the phosphate of .me which constitutes nearly two. .ilids of the bone, while one-third onslsts of a variety of organic sub. tances which contain nitroger,, and tins gives its own particular value to one meal as a plant foodt.

BRAINS AND FARMING. Put the fool of the family on leO ntd; he Is no good for anything else; I an old and an altogether obsolete lea, If we may Judge by the lads eat to the agricultural colleges; but t Is an absurd idea based on the be ief that farming success depends on peratlons which demand only the~ n tlligence of a laborer. There are arious types of brain, and brain pow *r develops unequally. Hence we have .oi fact that very often "the fool" ,om a school point of view, makes he successful man of business as :ell as the successful farmer. The Istake Is from the point of view of ,dging the "fool." The idea of the city man that far ors fall because they are not "scien tic" Is equally absurd. Ils belief thatthere Is a magical thing called .lonce which will enable a farmor a be successful. There is a germ of :uth in his idea, based on the fact hat by improved methods better crops lli be grown.
