A pair of twelve hundred pound Mules are worth from five to six hun- dred dollars to any farmer. Farmers who a few years ago stock 'cd their fish ponds with carp are now changing to the European brown trout finding' that a much more preferable table Hsh. I do not want a kicking cow says John Gould but I do want to sec one with nerve enough when abused kick her abuser into the farthci est corner of the barn so severely that when he ar- rives there he will understand she has the better developed brain. Raise all the colts you can. It is an ancient saying that one strong gen- tle old marc has paid off the mortgage on many a poor man's farm.

n- 1 tffft' 'rw''rufvi i '--HI-- rw POULTRY. $ My wife has Invcrttcd what seems to pne the cheapest simplest anu . most perfect means of protecting young chickens from wet and cold and rats that I ever saw. Simply an empty barrel (floUr or sugar best) laid On i'W side When the hen and chicks go in at night turn it up 'on its bottom mouth up. Next morning when it suits turn it down The hen will soon learn to go in at night as she would any Other coop. Bore three half inch holes around m the bottom to let the rain pass through. There will scarce- ly be need of covering it at any time Only when the hen is first put in the barrel' the when first taken off the nest to keep her from flying out. A strange peculiarity about this thing is that when the chicks get old enough they will fly out of the barrel in the morning and then they will fly up into it at night and no further turning down needed. They will continue to do that till they are weaned till they get large enough to take to the tr...

' On very mahy farms there is inabilN ty of their ovner$ to adapt themselves to the changed conditions of modern farming. Crops that once paid arc no longer profitable and cultivated as they used to he will probably never pay again. It is bard to give up crops that experience has shown arc adapted to the locality It may not be neces- sary to give them up entirely but grow them to a small extent white devoting a greater portion of time lapd and energy to growing something else that the new conditions demand. While this1 necessary change is being made the fanner must give especial care to keeping the best stock he can pro- cure. Oats are the grain most largely grown by those whose chief aim is to cultivate as much land as possible with the smallest expenditure of labor. The result is that the oat crop con- stantly tends to degeneracy. Our hot climate at the time the grain is filling...
