Did you ever think how important it is that it be
properly furnished. Did you ever know how a
boy iikes to show his companions his bedroom.
Is your boy ashamed of his? May-be you have
never given much attention to this, figuring it was
just the boy's room, but if you want to make your
boy truly love and cherish his home fit it up so
he will be proud of it. Our line of bedro jm furn
ishings are cheap enough when you come to think
of it, so that the boy's room can easily be a room
that you and he will be proud of.

order that it may be distinguished from

The luxuriance of the blossoms which
the chrysanthemums bear early nexi
winter will depend to quite an extent
upon tbe vigor and growth the plant
attain between now and that time.
Chrysanthemums are heavy feederti ami
should be given generous fertilizing
and frequent waterings.
Cows seem to be Just as hapless as
men when near deep water with u Jug
on. This is made, plain by the fnct that
the other day. when eight Hereford
cows belonging to a fanner living near
Sterling, 111., got boozed up after im
bibing too much silage Juice and went
to (he creek to slake their thirst, six
of them fell In and were drowned. The
moral of this tale seems to be, "fence
In the silage Juice or the creek."
An excellent drag or float for break
ing clods and for smoothing down
ridgy highways may be made by bolt
ing sections of three or four V shaped
hardwood posts to two strong two-by-eights
or tens at right angles, the bark
or wldo edge of the post facing back
ward. Enough space should be left be
neath the sections, which are fastened
on the under side of the plank, so that
it will not collect dirt bo readily.
August Is the best month in all the
year for girdling and killing trees like
the willow. This seems to be due to
the fact that the energy of the root
system seems to be largely spent In
the growth of limb and leaf up to
that time, and If the bark Is removed
for a space of a foot or more entirely
around the trunk It sort of leaves the
root system strapped and bankrupt.
If the girdling Is done in June or early
July there will be an effort ou the
part of the tree to Bend out shoots be
low the point of girdling from dormant
A Virginia dairyman found one of
his mild eyed bossies acting straugely
tho other day. On reporting the cir
cumstances and symptoms somewhat
carefully to the department of agricul
ture at Washington. It was decided that

drinking tbe Juice from fermented
cornstalks which she got at tbe base
of a silo. Since this case was reported
there have been a number like It else
where. If the dairy cows go on a toot
like this it ta powrible that the hired
men and proprietor may catch the

check Its growth In the lawn, water
liberally and clip rather closely, using
the grass catcher, bo that as many of

Steers are still going skyward that
Is, the prices nro. Within the past
month best grades have been quoted as
high as $10.50 ou the Chicago market
This surpasses any prices that have
ever before been paid. Including the
was prices of 1S01-05. If the present
high prices are due entirely to a short
supply and not to artificial manipula
tion there would seem to be good
ground for thinking that the prices
would mount still higher. The situa
tion works a hardship upon the con
sumer of beef, but It's great pickings

The Attest time to agitate tbe seed
torn question is not in March and
April, Just before tbe supply is needed
to put into tbe planter boxes, nor in
the full after there have been several
hard freezes, but now while the corn
is denting and maturing.- It Is pmb
ably a fair statement of the case that if
every farmer who Uvea in the north
era portion of the corn belt where tht
seed corn question usually gives mom
concern, would select his seed ears In
fore Sept. 2D, hang them up in the sun
shine where there is good movement of
air, finish drying the seed out If nec

in a majority of seasons in which the
corn ripens early and dries out thor

late as husking time, but several sea

been of this kind, with the result that
a good deal of seed saved ut husking

With rats doing a damuge annually
which is put by the department of
agriculture nt $100,000,000. It Is not
strange that a vigorous campaign Is
being wnged In many quarters for
their extermination. While a good
deal of this damage 1h borne by farm
ers in damage done to corn, small
groin and vegetables, h very heavy toll
Is also exacted from manufacturers
and wholesale and retail dealers in
cloth, leather and other goodB. But
this financial loss Is but a part of the
score against the rat The fondness
of rats for phosphorus Is said to bp
responsible for many disastrous fires,
matches being carried by the rodents
Into their runs beneath storehouses
and other buildings. A further reason
for the rat campaign is that they nre
the chief carriers of bubonic plague
and other malignant diseases. The rnt
is a curse on tbe face of the earth,
and both old folks and children should
wage nn unt paring fight against them
with poison, traps and other menus.

One southwestern Iowa apple grower
has demonstrated tb mission of beef
aa fertilizer of apple blossoms to hit
own entire satisfaction. Just aa bb
o re hard cam Into bloom last spring tu
tied small printer sacks over some itfo
blossom clusters In different parts nl
his orchard, ah soon as the petnls had
fallen he replured the paper sacks with
mosquito netting, so thnt the cluster
might have (; roper ventilation, yet Ite
kept from the visits of bees and other
insects. As the season advanced not a
single apple developed in any of the
clusters whlh were shielded In the
above mnniu. It Is because of Ui
faot made pUfn in this experiment thai
tho presence of hives of bees in or neui
an orchard I considered so beneficial.
A llttlo Reedllng walnut on a neigh
bor's lawn the writer passes frequently
has thrown out two shoots from the
same point that ts. It has a forked 1
head. It Is n good Idea when such
seedlings take this habit to cut off one I
shoot The other will jukui take an ;
upright piMltlou, aud the tree as It
grows will not only have n more ym
metrical, but a much stronger head j
What has Just been said Is equally i
true of practically all fruit trees and i
of elm and some other shade trees1 '
