Making Baby Beef . The more unsatisfactory the milk ■ltuation becomes, the more anxious we are to turn our 1 attention to othef branches x of farming, which will be more remunerative.

This is a very enterprising firm, growing continually, and giving work to many people.

Considered as a sport, flying possesses attractions which will appeal to many persons with a force beyond that exercised by any of the similar sports, such as boating, cycling or automobiling. There is a sense of exhilaration in flying through the free air, an Intensity of enjoyment, which possibly may be due to the satisfaction of an Inborn longing transmitted to us from the days when our early ancestors gazed wonderingly at the free flight of birds and contrasted It with their own slow and toilsome progress through the unbroken Wilderness.

4 FERTILIZER. I tave Ward farmers make the remark, "I made a mistake -in selecting my fertilizer." "My fertiliser 1» not giving satisfaction fpr money expended," etc. One farmer said that he had bought a special preparation tor potatoes and also . a superphosphate or dissolved bone as It is called. That the cheaper goods seemed to give as good result as the high priced goods. Another said that he - had fertilized a part of his corn field •and left a .part not fertilized and that he could not see any difference in the growth of his corn. The season evidently has much to do with the crop growth. After we have gone to the expense of buying fertiliser and putting in the crop if the season is unfavorable we may . fail to get a good crop, but well prepared and well fertilized soils stand a much better show to bring good crops than soils that have been badly managed. Usually the few pounds of nitrogen and of potash put in high priced fertilizers do not pay the extra cost over the phosphori...
