AUGUST, THE EIGHTH MONTH August was formerly called Sextillis, or the sixth month, the year beginning with March, but the Roman Emperor Augustus, to whom many lucky events occured durin? this month, made a sort of a pet month of it, instead ol the twenty-nine days it had under the old Roman calender, robbed February and gave Aug ust thirty-one days. Tue harvests are ripening. Prospects of plentiful crops delight the .farmer'on every hand.. Summer is on the wane, and even now, the scattering yellow leaves are seen peeping through the grcHii>, the avant couriers of coming autumn.

We need valiant souls who have learned to endure and scorn pain, and to lacs danger fearlessly and promptly when duty requires. Sonic parents evade this vital part of training by glosses and deception. A mother who hss taken her boy to the dentist's to 2jet a tooth but will often say; if he is^shrinkitg: "Sit still; my boy, it won't hurt you."; Now she knows -it will hurt him, buf. thinks if she can only get him by this device to sit still i.nd let the dentist get hold of his tooth, thim his discovery of the pain will not binder its extraction.

How to Fatten Land. The farmer is often inquiring into the best way to make his land ric^Ȥ so that it will yield him the greatest amount of profit. One will say, I use guano another phosphate; another ashes, and, plaster, etc.; and all claim I they have the best of crops from each. Now; experience is a good thing, and as it is different kinds of soil, I will give you my views. I| I wish to fatten a pig I do not give him just one ear of corn or a spoonful of corn meal, but it1 gets a good square meal, and that brings the fat. ^ust so with the land. If jl wish to raise a good crop of onions, corn or potatoes, or. any other crop, I put on from 20 to 40 tons of good stable manure to the acre, and it never fails to show itself in a rich return. Bufcsome may say, put one ton of phosphate or guano"ana you will save time and trouble in hauling, and will get just as good a crop. But I don't believe that statement, for. when I plow under 30 or 40 tons of good stable manure I have a b...
