For the Farmer Better Farming flethods. In an address in Chicago, Mr. Wilson, secretary of agriculture, said: To stop a growing decrease in the yield of the average acre, the government has made provision for the establishment of agricul- tural colleges and experimental stations. Within the last few years the acre has been re- sponding better and the yield is increasing. Conservation o f natural resources has had a great deal of attention lately. 1 think broad-minded men will have no difficulty in reaching the oonclusion thai the soils of the country are the greatest asset the nation has; that progress in all directions depends upon the oondition of the soil, and that there is no material inquiry of such great value as what per- tains to the soils of the United States. The notion is not worth being entertained that any of our soils are beyond redemption. The poople of the older nations of the world took care of fertility of the soil as a matter of prime necessity, and long ago as- c...

mm 525* j§§ Is the Buying for Your Home Done Intelligently. Some housewives, harrassed to the verge of nervous breakdown by trival an- noyances, devote no real attention to the "buying" problem. They buy when they HAVE TO—perhaps at the "nearest place" —when very likely, better values and lower prices are advertised by three or four differ- ent stores. The housewife who does not give as much attention to a study of the ads as she gives to the other things in the daily rou- tine, that are of half as much importance, will never find any real interest in the bus- iness of home-making. The ad-studying housewife buys Intel- ligently She knows her "market" as well as any broker or merchant knows his. And she will never stop to tell you how "hard it is to find anything in the stores nowadays that one wants and can still afford to buy." For, to an ad-reader, that is not such a hard task!

For the Farmer The Poultry Yard Keep the dust box supplied ■with nice clean dust, and see that the grit box is never empty. If the hens were compelled to work a little harder these days for what grain they get, it would be a good thing for them. As the new corn gets dry and hard it is safe to feed more than when it was soft and green. It is more easily digested and gives better results. Never feed meat scraps that were made of rotton meat. Good, pure feed is the only thing that ever 6ught to be fed to a fowl of any kind. During winter the drinking vessels must be emptied each evening; it is much easier to do that than it is to break a solid cake of ice in them the next morning. If it possibly can be done, clean up the droppings each day. It is work that well repays one. Never allow this cleaning to be delayed longer than a week. Leaving the birds to fight their own battles against lice andother enemies may save some work, but it will cost some eggs; and eggs are worth money these da...

Signatures. Soma unknown friend Fat down and wrote to me a kind and pleisant note. His sentiments were mighty sweet; his penman, ship was pluin and neat until he tried to write his name, and then a fit attacked his frame. He must have suffered fehrful pain to make a drawing to insane Methinks 1 nee him paw the air and bite the rungs out of hie chair. I hope that some kind soul was there to push him, with a pole, into the ice ohest, thereto lie until the fierce attack passed by. How sad it is so many men climb up and ride upon a pen and scatter ink and dust their hames, when they attempt to sign their names! The note to which I have referred—could anything be more absurd? I've studied it with tears and groans; sometimes I think the name is Jones, and then again I'd say it's Brown, with sundry letters upside down. Perhaps it's Smith; it may be Duff; I give it up—I've toiled enough. There ought to be some chloride cures of men with dizzy signatures; they make the angry passions rise, t...

The Home Circle Similes should be the legal tender in every family for the' payment of all debts of kindness j and each member should be! willing to take this currency at its face value. Don't repress the buoyant spirit of your children; half an hour of merriment around the lamp and firelight of a home blots out many a care and an- noyance during the day, and the best safeguard they can take with them into the world is the unseen influence of a bright little domestic circle. There is no fault so hard to overcome as the hasty temper. We may make any number of good resolutions, and then the first time we have any pro- vacation away we go without an instant's warning, and before we realize what we are doing the unkind words have been spoken, and no matter how mush regret we feel they cannot be unsaid. The wages of women were never so high as now, yet it is almost impossible to procure the services of a good woman at any price, for the reason that labor is looked upon as degrading. Youn...

For the Farmer Preparing Pecan Trees for Top-Working. CHA8. L. EDWARDS- Written for the Post-Signal. In the preparation of pecan tree9 for future budding, it is wholly unnecessary to take off the entire top and most of us have noticed that when the lower branches of any kind of tree are cut away in the regular oourse of prunning, a number of natural sprouts or shoots soon appear, not only near the founda tions of the cut-away branches but both above and below. On residence grounds one does not like to disfigure a handsome tree by taking off all the top, when enough shoots for budding may be had by a rather severe pruning of lower branches. But sometimes the top of the tree is mounted on a tall stem with no lower branches within 12 to 15 feet of the ground. In such cases, one may take a saw and cut a seam through the bark to the wood all around the stem of the tree at a distance of 8 to 12 feet above ground according to the size of the tree. This will cause an abundance of sprouts to...

Though not much of a mathematician, she deals in numbers, wholesale and retail—adds St. Paul 486 to Mount Vernon 2749 and sub- tracts Tuxedo 48-M from Madi- son 8249—K with lightning-like Rapidity." "The Goverment experts find that she can answer 226 calls a minute without shedding a hair- pin, but do not mention that she can give you the same wrong number three times in fiive ^min- ut?s and cause attacks of apo- plexy and indignation at both ends of the wire."
