Cheap Shelter for Stock.
A framework of heavy poles, with
poles or rails over it, and entirely cov
ered with straw or corn fodder, Is sug
gested by the New England Farmer as
a very good, warm shelter at a slight
expense. The satisfaction of having
stock comfortable will alone amply re
pay the cost of it. Such a shelter will
answer for poultry, pigs or any kind of
farm stock. Years ago It was thought
the proper thing to winter stock around
the straw stack, "to harden them," but
opinions have changed, and every one
Creamery Shark. ,
The "creamery shark" is again at
work in New York State. What is a
creamery shark? He looks like a man
on the outside, and he can talk like a
phonograph. He goes about trying to
interest farmers In building co-operative
creameries. His favorite plan Is
to interest some "prominent citizen"
by offering him a number of shares of
the stock. Then the two worthies go
about gettlag farmers to sign a con
tract agreeing to buy a certain num
ber of shares. The contract usually
calls for an expensive plant, and in the
end the farmers find themselves sad
dled with an outfit costing from 25 to
40 per cent, more than reputable deal
ers would charge for it. The creamery
shark thrives on deception and fraud.
nis chief argument is that, by saving
advertising and other expenses, he is
able to give farmers cheaper rates for
goods handled by old-established firms.
Our advice Is never to buy without first
corresponding with manufacturers of
long stauding. Rural New Yorker.

The Coming Farmer.
The man who has worn out his farm
will have his mind somewhat worn,
and It will need overhauling before
success will be fully reached in reno
vating the soil. The farmer's mind
must be fed first, the food for the mind
is education. When the farmer has a
longing for more knowledge than he
gains each week from these columns,
then we have awakened In him a spirit
of investigation to find out how to re
store to his soil its lost crop capacity.
He will begin to Invest In stock and he
will become more of a flesh-growing
farmer and seller Instead of a grain
seller. Instead of selling his capital
(soil fertility) with the grain he manu
factures the grain into flesh, builds up
his farm and gets on in the world
more contented. The young farmers
are becoming our reading farmers.
They consider as a part of their equip
ment the knowledge of soils, the value
and blending of feeds and the scientific
rotation of crops. The farm Is his
bank, the soli his working capital, and
with well-fed mind and soil he will be
prosperous and contented. Farmer
Dispose of Unprofitable Cows.
The Toronto Globe says a Canadian
farmer who kept twenty-four cows and
two hired men, tested his cows with
the Babcock test and found that eight
were unprofitable. He disposed of
them and let one hired man go, and at
the end of the year foutid that he had
made as much money from the sixteen
as from the twenty-four. Now he has
got down to twelve good cows, and ex
pects as much from them as he made
from twice that number. Now he can
Increase up to his original number as
fast as he can find or grow good cows,
and Increase his profits.

A Wood-Sawing Device.
Sawing wood Is hard work at the
best. No small part of Us lrksomeness
Is the necessity of holding down the
New Clothes Post.
It Is believed that this clothes post
will fill a long-felt want. It Is fitted
up with a double line running over a
wheel at both
ends. There is a
support on which
to set the clothes
basket and a small
rainproof box for
hold lng clothes
pins. One can thus
set the basket of
clothes down and
proceed to pin
them upon the
lower line, moving
the line along as
fast ns the clothes
CI.OTHKS PORT. are PUt Ui)0Q lt
and thus hang out the whole wash
without moving a step or once lifting
the basket. If ine ground be wet or
covered with snow, this Is an import
ant point. This plan also saves much
labor If one end one wheel can be
attached to a post on the back veranda
or porch, using the basket support and
the pin box as on the regular post. This
will obviate the necessity of stepping
out upon the gronnd at all, either In
hanging out or taking fh the clothes.
French Women as Business Helpers.
Miss Anna L. Bicknell writes an ar
ticle on "French Wives and Mothers"
for the January Century. 'She says:
In the families where the father con
ducts any business the wife becomes
his best clerk and usually his cashier.
The wives are exceedingly intelligent
and aoute, extremely sharp at driving
bargains, and accurate in keeping ac
counts. They are their husbands' part
ners in every sense of the word, and it
is wonderful to see how they acquit
themselves of such a multiplicity of
duties. Self is completely annihilated;
and if weak health is mentioned, it is
never an impediment to what they have
to do for their children or their hus
bands, but is mentioned only as a dis
agreeable accompaniment to a necessary
fatigue, without an idea of using it as
an exouBe for shortcomings.

To Lighten Spring Work.
Winter work cannot always be done
to suit the convenience of the farmer,
as severely cold weather, continued
rains and other obstacles are to be met
but there Is much work put off until
spring that could be done In winter. In
the spring, as soon as plowing and
planting must be performed, dozens of
Jobs come up to be done In a hurry, and
all seem to need attention at once.
Is then that the farmer finds that he
has been neglectful and failed to pre
pare for spring. Wagons are to Iron
repairs are required for Implements,
seod Is to be procured and fertilizer
must be purchased. At the same time
every other farmer Is busy and can
render no assistance, while merchants
who have many orders on hand cannot
supply the needed articles promptly,
The way to make the spring oiierationa
easier and save time is to do as much
to lighten the spring work as possible,
Aahea with Stable Manure.
It may seem strange to advise ap
plying wood ashes unleached to stable
manure lust before If Is plowed under,
Yet this is often a good thing to do.
While exposed to the air, especially
If the manure be wet so as to leach the
ashes, there will be some loss of am
monla. But so fast as the manure and
ashes are turned under, this waste of
nmmonla ceases. The ashes cause th
manure to ferment rapidly, and In con

Corn talk and Clover Hay.
On most farms in this country cither
clover hay or cornstalks Is the main ra
tion for foddering farm stock during
the winter. These are,- everything
considered, the cheapest foods that the
arm can produce, the advantage of
the corn being that It will grow a
greater bulk than can be grown of
anything else. The clover has an equal
advantage In the fact that wherever It
is grown the soil Is Increasing In fer
tility. It Is economy to feed clover
and corn stalks together, as each will
supplement the deficiencies of the oth
er, and more of both will be eaten and
