KKST AND BELIEF.
A piece of machinery run by steam and
overworked will become cranky, creaky and
out of gear, owing to some expansion of
metal from heat and friction. Stop its
work, rub and brighten and let it rest. In
a short while it will be restored and will
run smoothly. The human system is a
machine. Too much work and worry are
thrown upon it; too much of the heat of
dailv cares; too much of th&steam of daily
business. The nerves become cranky ; they
are icstless, sleepless and twitehy, and a
neuralgic condition sets in. Pain throws
the machine out of gear and it needs rest
and treatment to strengthen and restore.
St. Jacobs oil is the one remeay 01 an pe
culiarly adapted to a prompt and sure
cure. So many have so Ireely testined
from experience and use to its efheacy in
the cure of neuralgia that it passes without
saying that it surely cures, it win De a
gracious surprise to many after the free
use of it to Imd how easily pain, cures and
worrv may be lifted, and how smoothly

lows. If the peach Is an extra good
one, it may well be left to fruit on Its
own stock. Some kinds of peaches re
produce themselves from seed, and all
kinds of this fruit are more likely to
produce something nearly like them
selves. If the native fruit proves to
be worthless, a few buds inserted high
er up after It has grown large enough
to show what It Is, will change It to
whatever variety may be desired.
Plow Under Rubbish.
It will be a pleasant surprise to the
farmer or gardener to notice the Im
provement of land where vegetable
growth of any kind ias beer plowed
under. It will take the time of some
one to pull, rake and cart off or burn
such rubbish. Why not let this extra
help follow the plow aid keep It clear
of obstruction and acconiolish some
good from the operation? Not ouly will
there be returned to the soil what the
plant has taken up during the growing
season, but also what the foliage has
been able to appropriate from the air.
This will be a paying operation upon
land that is liable to be a little
droughty. It will be noticed that the
retentive properties of such laud will
be greatly improved by persistence In
this line of management. The most
perfect implement for this kind of
work and also plowing under coarse
manure Is the sulky plow. Orarrs
Natural Blue Grass Land.
Blue grass is one of the most nutri
tious of all the grasses. Its roots are
straggling and run near the surface,
therefore it Is rich in early spring,
when the mill's rays do not warm the
soil deeply. Some land seems to grow
up In bli" grass whenever left un-
cropped. t will run out most otner
crasses as the latter fall. One reason
why this grass Is nutritious is, perhaps,
explained by the remark uu old farmer
made, that he had always noticed that
the natural blue crass land was a
strong limestone soil.

The average yield of potatoes per
acre In the United States is from sixty
to ninety bushels; in the Islanf of Jer
sev that tlclit little island of fine
cows nnd superfine potatoes the aver
age yield of the latter is 333 bushels
an acre, with Instances not a few of
yields of 500 or GOO bushels tr the
acre. Of course, the area of land is
small In Jersey, for the whole island
contains less than 28,000 acres, with
about 19,000 acres arable, and farms
are very small, many of them contain
ing three acres or less, aud the largest
has about fifty acres.
This makes the most Intensive farm
ing necessnry, hence the yield of pota
toes noted. Such results and such con
ditions prove that large farms are not
necessary, and that, in fact, they niny
be of greatest disadvantage, particu
larly where not thoroughly cultivated.

Flavoring Hay. :,
When fresli clover not fully cured is
mixed with grain straw as it Is put in
the barn, not ouly will the clover be
kept from blackening, but it will Im
part a delicious aroma to' the straw
mowed away with it. : Some farmers
sow vernal grass, which has a . very
nleasant scent, for the purpose of fl
voring the hay. It mnkes the bay
more palatable, and that- mnkes It
more nutritious. It also makes the
hay field a piueh pleasanter place to
work In, as the scent of the newly-cut
vernal grass is most delightful.

Kilmer's Swamp-Root Sent Free by Mail.
People doctor their troubles and try different medicines so often without benefit
that they get discouraged and skeptical. In most suchcases serious mistakes are made
In doctoring and not knowing what our trouble is or what makes us sick. The unmis
takable evidences of kidney trouble are pain or dull ache In the back, too frequent de
tire to pass water, scanty supply, scalding irritation. As kidney disease advances the
face looks sallow or pule, eyes puffy, the feet swell and sometimes the heart aches badly.
Should further evidence be needed to find out the cause of sickness, then set urine aside
for twenty-four hours ; a sediment or settling is also convinc'ng proof that our kidney s
and bladder need doctoring.
The mild and extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney
and bladder remedy, is soon realized. It stands the highest for its wonderful cures.
Sold by druggists,' price fifty cents and one dollar. Bo universally successful has
Bwamp-Root been in quickly curing even the the most distressing cases that if you wish

In which the fowls should roost. In win

snow, the hens are almost helpless and
must remain Inside. They should have
plenty of room on the tloor. whlcu
should be kept covered with cut straw
or leaves, in which they can scratch
and work. Overfeeding on grain Is
the cause of bens not laying, and it
also leads to double-yolk eggs, soft-

should have ten square feet of room
