r For the Farmer Irrigating Trees. The present year's drouth has aroused considerable interest a- mong farmers and fruit growers in the matter of orchard irriga- tion. When natural rainfall does not meet the requirement, and the weather becomes both hot and dry, young trees give the signal of distress. Some people who wish to do something for the relief of the trees dig out the dirt from the base, thereby form- ing a basin around the collar of the tree, and into this they pour a quantity of water This meth- od helps some, but a much bet- ter method is to dig a trench, circling around the tree some distance from the base. The dis- tance will depend upon the size of the tree. By putting water enough into this depression that has been made t o thoroughly soak the ground, the lateral roots are reached and much more good is done When the water is en- tirely taken up by the soil and the bottom of the trench is be- coming a little dry, the trench should be filled up with a loose soil to fo...

L> ' RIDING THE BELLS. Spectacular Feats of the Daring Rinp- ers of Seville. The ringing of a bell is not, as ruie, a performance particularly trying to tlie nerves, but there Is one set of bell ringers the members of whlcD must know no fear, for a moment of tremor would in all probability be for them the moment of death. They are the bell ringers of the Giralda. in Se ville. When I he city is to make merry on feast days the ringers climb to the belfry, and then by the aid of a rope and steps cut in the wall of the tower each mounts to the bell ho is to ring and stands astride the shoulder of the brazen monster. Then he presses the bell with his feet, holding on the cross- piece on which the mass of metal Is swung. Gradually the great bell sways to the muscular movement of the man astride it until It acquires a motnen turn that swings the hammer, first gently and then with increasing force as the sweep of the bell widens until the air is trembling from the giant blows that strike...

The Home Circle A good washing machine costs leader that urges him on through from five to eight dollars, but a washboard can be bought for twenty-five cents. Thi9 kind of economy gives a good many men a chance to look f or a sec- ond wife. There is a demand for good boys. The boys who is honest, earnest and industrious, will not be long out of a job. There are lots of prosperous business men, mer- chants and mechanics, who are constantly on the outlook for good boys. They do not look for them on the streets, however, but in some sort of employment. They have no use for an idle boy. He is too apt to make an idle man. The difference between good and bad mothers, is so farreach- ing that it is no exaggeration to say that the good mothers of this generation are building the homes of the next generation, and the bad mothers are building the prisons. For out of families nations are made; and if the fa- ther be the head and the hands of a family, the mother is the heart. No office in the ...

For the Farmer Reasons for a Silo. The Colorado agricultural col- lege gives the following reasons why the dairyman should have a silo: First—By means of the silo more of the food value of forage can be saved than by any other method of preparation. Second—The silo gives the means of keeping in small com- pass a large quantity of forage safe from the weather and i n convenient form to feed. Third— Forage placed in the silo keeps at a uniform quality, whereas field cured forage con- stantly deteric r -tes. Fourth—Considering the food value saved, the silo affords the cheapest means for forage pres- ervation. Fifth—Because of the palata- bility and succulence the silage possesses higher feeding value than the same forage dry cured. Conservative feeders estimate that the silo doubles the valui of the forage crop. Sixth—Silage can be used in summer and fall to supplement pasture. Seventh—It is proved that the silo effects a considerable saving in the cost cf producing beef, mutton and m...

r The Home Circle A young girl will be far safer in the hands of a young man born of parents in moderate cir- cumstances, honest in his princi- ples, the energetic and industri- ous, than she would with a young man who has only known the luxurious of life, and to whom work is an incidental matter rather than the aim and purpose of life. dearept woman and father as the best man. The great event in every young man's life is his awakening. There comes a time when he's aroused from the dreamy care- lessness of boyhood by the open- ing possibilities of life. If he then drops into indifference and begins life in any easy, shiftless way, he fritters away his chances. If he comes to a deep, eernest purpose to be at his best and do his best, he arrives early at the highest rank among equals in business, profession or trade. The over-dressed child is al- ways the unhappy child. She is a pert miss who has learned early to regard over much the pomps and vanities of life, or she The boy that jum...

For the Farmer The Boy of the City. God help the boy who never sees The butterflies, the birds, the bees. Nor hears the music of the breeze When zephyrs soft are blowing. Who cannot in sweet comfort lie Where clover blooms are thick and high, And hear the gentle murmur nigh Of brooklets softly flowing. God help the boy who does not know Where all the woodland berries grow, Who never sees the forests glow When leaves are red and yellow; Whose childish feet can never stray; For such a hapless boy I say When Nature does her charms display— God help the little fellow. —Nixon Waterman.
