For the Farmer Feed The Soil. Labor cannot bo secured from horses without uiving them reg- ular and suitable food. Milk cannot be produced from cows unless tl a materials for milk production aie given to the cows in their daily rations. The horse is a machine for the pro- duction of labor; the cow is a machine for pro iuction of milk. Both the labor and milk are modified forms of food. The soil is a medium for the production of crops. Crops, like animals, grow on food. Some crop food 0}m33 fro 11 the air and from sunlight. The re- mainder comes from the earth. The earth is a great storehouse of plant food. Each crop ap- propriates some of the food stored away in the bo9om of mother earth and leaves the soil with less nourishment for eucceeding crop?. The remarkable fertility of our Western soils ha3 enabled many farmers to secure crop after crop without apparent loss to soil fer- tility. But in time the crops must decrease if the soil is not replenished with the plant food taken fro...

■ m I The Home Circle A man who enters life's battle with the determination to sue- oeed usually attains his desire. Self confidence begets confidence and respect. Don't lose faith in yourself and you will not lose faith in your fellowman. It is said that one might, when some English soilders werj shiv- ering in the cold of a Crimean winter a band struch up the familiar tune, "Home! Sweet Homel" then they all burst out sobbing, because the air went straight to their hearts. Yes! "There is no place like home." One of the sweetest words in the English language is that little word, "Home." Home sould be— "A world of strile shut out; A world of love shut in." Home is a haven of rest to a man after a hard days work. Mother, you may be children, tired after a trying day with the but remember that others have trying days too. Father has been in the office all day pouring over business perplexi- ties or financial problems but now he locks the office door and with a sigh of relief he thinks ...

f 11 I \9 The Home Circle Fnisih every day and be done with it. For manners and for wise living it is a vice to remember You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely and with too high spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day for all that is good and fair. It is too dear with all its hopej an invi- tations to waste a moment on the rotten yesterdays. Any business man would be horrified at the suggestion that he would ruin hid boy by neglect, that his absorption in business would result in the undoing of hi8 own son. But it is the easi- est thing in the world to forfeit a boy's confidence, It will take only a little enubbings, a little scolding, a little unkind criticism a little nagging and unreason- ableness to shut off forever any intimacy between you and your boy. Do we ever stop to t^iink, we wonder, how blejt are tha quijt days—the days when ...

The Home Circle Innocent amusements trans- forms tears into rainbows. The man who is always telling about his good character should be carefull to always have it with him. By example, much more than percept, can children be taught to speak kindly. Then, do not, for their sakes, ever let them hear harsh or unkind words fall from your lips. Proverty is uncomfortable, a? 'vecan testify; but nine times out of ten the best thing that can hap pen to a ycung man is to be tossed over board and compelled to sink or swim for himself. Althrough it is a terrible, mis- fortune to lose a home by fire, it is not nearly so bad as lon'ny; the happiness of home by the dissipation, unfaithfulness ordis giace of one of the members of the family. Would you have your home a peaceful spot? Then let only gentle actions be found there. Let the husband press a kiss on the careworn brow of his tired wife, who, amid her never-end- ing round of household duties, is sure to find rest and encourage- ment in his l...
