The quickest and simplest method of
utilizing old bones Is to burn them In
the kllchen stove and carefully save
the ashes. In this war vou trot in tha
ash all tiie phosphoric acid and Umo
there Is in the bone, but you lose the
nitrogen, whlvh goes off as gas in the
smoke. Where tbe qimrwlty of bones Is
small, however, and especially If the
facilities required for other methods of
rising them aro uoit at hand, and If the
bones cannot be sold at a fair price.
this burning of them Is far batter than
to permit them to go to waste. Bono
makes an Intense heat, and as far as It
goes Is a valuable fuel. Every thrifty
farmer saves nil tho wood ash from
tho house, for It Is so rich In phosphoric
acid and potash that not a pound of it
should bo wasted, but every bit of wood
nsh (whether containing bone ash or
not) should be religiously preserved.
Every intelligent and thrifty farmer
knows the value of a dressing of rich
wood ash and fine bone meal. Except
for the loss of nitrogen by burnlna. this
home-made crtmbfnatlon of wood ash
and bone ash wfil accomplish nearly as
gooa resrults as the famous unleached
wood ash and bone meal mixture.

and has two lots of ground, ono belnrr
given up to fowls, while tho other is
used for garden, the lots being about
One and A quarter acres each. The next
year he turns the fowls on the ffnrdon

vacated by tho fowls. By thus giving

lowest subsoil, often solid, hard and
without vegetable mold, Is more or less
mixed with that dug near the surface,
and which Is usually richer. In filling
the ditch this mixture continues, so
that the soil that was dug from the bot
tom of the ditch may often be in the
last spadeful thrown in. Yet it never
ha9 been known to make any differ
ence. Always crops of any kind show
a better growth directly over the drain
than they do on either side, even dur
ing the first Season's growth. After a
year or two the good effect of the drain
extends to and on either side, as the
soil freezes deeper when surplus water
Is romoved from It, and the roots of
