Youth and age have too little sympathy with each other. If the young would remember that they may be old, and the old remember that they have been young, the world would be hap- pier. Did you ever realize that no- thing on earth oan smile but a human being. Gems may flash reflected light but what is a dia- mond flash?

For the Farmer Soil Conservation. Henry Wallace of Iowa is one of the nation's greatest farmers and a man so highly regarded that his word is taken a3 the last one possible in the discussion of any farm problem. In a recen discussion Mr. Wallace made the statement that during the ye«rs between 1860 to 1900, covering the years of this country's great- est expansion and development, that the United States lost more fertility on its soils than it gain- ed by the addition of the virgin acres of the west and southwest. Mr. Wallace thinks that the American farmer has been min- ing his soil instead of conserving it, and that soil fertility is a pro- blem quite as important to the man who consumes farm products as to the man who produces them, and that neither the farm- er nor the costumer realize the extent to which the soil is being robbed. The term mining the soil is good. The farmer has cropped his laad with no idea of return- ing thereto the soil principles extracted by the crops, and ...

Far the Farmer Poultry Notes. To cure a cr< p-bound fowl, try giving a tablespoonful of castor oil, in which has been mixed a pinoh of black pepper, once a day for two or three days. There is nothing that will make hens commence to lay better than fresh ground bone and meal. A writer some years ago truthfully said that more is lost to producers of dressed poultry, ®gge> butter, vegetables and fruit through sending them to the market in improper condi- tion, than would be required to pay the national debt. It is an old saying that cleanli- ness is next to goddliness. This applies to the hen house as much as to anything else. It is time now to clean up. Roup may bi apparently cured but it cannot be entirely eradicat- ed from the system. It id apt to break out again and be trans- mitted to the young. Under no circumstances should fowls be used in the breeding pen that have suffered from contagion in any form. To cure roup, colds and swell- ed heads, apply on the heads, or in the ...
