For the Farmer Dan Patch's Hascot. Great horses, like great men, have their peculiarities and have to be humored in their fads. Dan Patch, the greatest of harness horses, is no exception to this rule. The peerless pauer has several fancies that Hersey and the care-takers know and carefully heed. Among the most unusual of these is the horse's love for dogs. The haughty Dan, who has lowered the oolors of the proudest pacers of the world, and who accepts the homage of multi- tudes, is meek and gently thoughtful of the canine pet that is lucky enough to have won his favor. It i9 the little dog that Dan cares most for and he is never more content than with his favorite silver Yorkshire terrier. The favorite is known as "Patch" and ie an exceedingly promising youngster, who seems to ap- preciate the honor being con- ferred upon him. He is less than two years old and was selected for royal favors last season, since when great friendship has sprung up between the world's champion and his li...

For the Farmer Gumption on the Farm. Gather and burn the rubbish. How some folks do enjoy roll- ing up their sleeves, and then— bossing the job that somebody else does. Gather pumpkins and squash before a hard frost, and store away in a dry place (not in a damp cellar). Bring in the corn horse after you are through with it. Even a wooden horse will show the effects if stabled out in the field a few months. Do not leave the old cabbage stumps sticking up out of the ground. They look slovenly and breed fungus pests. Pull them up and burn them. When killed by the frost, mow off the asparagus tops and burn them. Then give the bed—and the rhubarb plants, too—a thick winter overcoat of stable manure. The cultivating season is over and all tools should be cleand up and housed. One winter's exposure to the weather will do tools more harm than several years' use. A good growth of rye plowed in next spring will give you more and better potatoes. But you'll have to get it in right off or you w...

For the Farmer Wagon Roads and Rail- roads. BY B. F. YOAKUM Chainman Frisco Railway. There is not much now to be said on the value of good roads to agriculture and commerce. Every farmer knows that the ne- cessity for country roads is as old as farming itself. A good farm away from a railroad or a public road is almost as unprofit- able as without water. It is hard to understand why Americans, who have been so enterprising in other things, should be back- ward in making good country roads. There has been a dispo- sition to use "bull strength" and haul farm products over bad roads regardless ef expense. Good roads add greatly to the profits and comforts of farmers, but knowing so and saying so, do not produce good roads, they will have to be made. All talk and no work will not make your roads. Go at it with she same determi- nation you would to dig ditches or build fences. A farmer in Crawford county, Missouri, has his choice of haul- ing to either of two stations—one two miles away ...

I MILITARY FORT'S, The Why and Wherefore of Many Army Customs. HAND AND SWORD SALUTES. The Origin of the Former Goes Back to the Time of the Borgias and the Latter to the Knights of the Cru sades—Funeral Volleys and Taps. Why does a soldier when saluting a superior raise his hand to his head revering? The beginning dates hack to the time of the Horglas, If not to an i-arller date In those days assnssjna lion was in vogue, and in order that an inferior might not have a superior at advantage the inferior was com- pelled when coining into his superior's presence to raise his right hand, palm to the front, to show that no dagger was concealed there. From tlds old custom our hand salute has mine down. The salute with the sword was not done that way in the beginning with- out any reason. When knights of the crusades received their orders it was the custom for them to call upon God to witness their assumption of the orders given. To do this the sword was raised to the front so that the hil...
