Through countless ages on the earth there
A race called man, which 6trove ihmI
hoped and dreamed;
A.nd those there were who sang, and
those who taught,
And those who whispered of the lost
And as they came and went they tmildod
A structure marvelous that no man
planned, '. . " " " '
A towering temple, rising white and sheer
Where sea-lapped mountains frown
upon the land. .,' ,
On through its portals, ever moving;
The generations, nddlne to Itp, store ,',
Of all that's beautiful, until ht last- ""
To those who', gazed, there seqmed no
room for more. ' .'a? " '
Not all in peace had this proud panc?t
grown,, f vi t-
For in its shadow men nao; warred onu
And, falling there, had seen the e'T
That, erstwhile glonmimj,' filled their
hearts with pride. ..
But ever hopeful, as the ages cried
From out the , ages to the race that
wrought, ,;." '
They builded then anew, and, side by side,
Carved what they dreamed and writ
there what they thought.
And so on earth man through the aeons
To make this palace notrter to the eye,
And worthy, as the casket of his love,
To tell his glory to the bye-and-bye.
And some day lonely on a lonely earth,
The last man sleeping where his fathers
This wondrous thing that in man's soul
Shall rise iu Bilence by the moaning
A temple, made for dust-worms, of a race
That camo and went, and dreamed its
dream and died;
And, crumbling there, shall fall to earth
The mausoleum of man's love and pride.

s:nut In tills couiiTry is very large, and
y tlie matter lias- received but little

parasiUc fungi, the spores or seed-like
bodies ot which form the black, dusty

nels or the entire head. These spores
are very minute, and are easily blown
atiout, often adhering to the kernel be
fore it Is planted, and when such ker
nels sprout the spores also germinate
and send delicate threads Into the
young seedlings. Thqse threads follow
the growth of the plant, fill the head as
soon as formed, and there develop a
mass of spores Instead of kernels. This
black mass Is so well known as to be
recognized by every fanner who has
grown grain, but many farmers may
not be aware of tho fact that every ear
of corn containing smut is a menace to
the grain crop of next year. All such
stalks should bo cut out and burned on

" ' ' Penna Among Corn.
f uccotash was on original Indian
dlsliando the Indians wo probably
owe the practice of growing corn and
loans interspersed in the same field.
Usually when the early planted corn
falls, a hill of beans is placed In the va
cancy where tlie corn should liave boon.
Still another way of growing beans
among corn Is to wait uutfl near July,
and then plant hills between every hill
of com, and thereafter cultivate only In
the rows that are free from tho lonns.
Oh good hind a considerable crop of
lnans may thus be grown, and without
interfering with the corn crop. We
have tried this plan when we were liv
ing in a city, where all our gardening
had to bo done on a city lot, and it was
necessary to make the land produce ns
much as it could bo made to do. Amer
For Unruly Horned Animals.
Fasten a stout stick about six feet
long to the horns,, allowing it to project
equally on either side of tho head. Per
pendicular to this pluce a stick four feet
long and fasten It to the lower part of
tho head by means of the ring In the
bull's nose, or In the case of any other
animal a strap Just back of the muzzle.

they cross. Place ropes ,ln the three

ahead pulling on the upright will throw
the head up In the air. Orange Judd
Clarence Ilawley, of Illinois, says he
has tried two remedies that have never
failed to his knowledge. He says; "For
scours In calves take corncobs and chop
them up about lVb or 2 Inches long, put
thorn In a kettle on tho stove and stoop
them until you get the tea out of them.
Put It In a long-necked bottle nnd pour
It down the calf's throat It will stop
the scours nnd will not hurt them. It
will uot hurt a young colt, but will stop
the scours at once. Hogs' lard will take
warts off horses. Apply It once a day
for a short tune.
The great evils of vermin and disease
among poultry are best combated by
ketuilng small tlocki of hens, and bous
ing them In a number of henhouses
made small enough to be easily moved
from one place to another. Such houses
need not be expensive, and if a stone
boat Is fitted with a broad platform the
henhouse may be placed on It and
drawn anywhere on the farm. Wher
ever Insect enemies are depredating, it
is well to place several of these hen
houses near-by, and let them help clear
away the vermin, and also be getting
the larger part of their living. It may
require that a yard be built up so as to.
keep the fowls from straying too far.
But hens with chickens are the,' best
scavengers, and they will remain near
their temporary home, and , return to'
It at night :
Manuring Dean Oronnd. . .
It is a common mistake to suppose
that beans do best on poor land,., and
do not need any manure. Old fanners
often say, "the land was too rich," and,
therefore the beans "ran all to vines
without producing much grain." But
this is the best indication that the land
was not rich enough. Beans require
phosphate of lime and potash. Many
black, mucky soils are supposed from'
their color to be very rich. But such
soils often have a great lack of lime
and potash. In fact an excess of loam
means that at some time it has been
covered with water, and its mineral
fertility has mostly been washed out
Or it may be that the soil is even now
wet, and the bean crop is very impa
tient of too much moisture, which
causes many rusts both of tho leaves,
pods and beans.
It is always best wherever possible to
breed cows on the same farm where
they are to be kept. The cow is a very
home-loving animal, and if taken from
old associations it will neither eat nor
give so much milk as it would if kept
where It was grown. We have seen
cows walk uneasily around the field as
If looking for a place to get out for
days, and until the grass in the path
they made was entirely destroyed. Of
course such cows cannot be profitable
milkers. After a cow has had one calf
in her now homo, tt seems more home1
like to her, and If she is where she can
see it and sometimes be with it, she
will be less discontented, except for the
first few weeks, while she is mainly
anxious to be with her calf.
Low Wagons for Manure Drawing. '
It is heavy work pitching manure all
day, and is especially so If it has to be
done into a high wagon box. A low
truck wagon with box not higher than
the wheels of an ordinary wagon will
do the work of drawing manure much
betfet than will the wagons used for
marketing. Such a wagon almost any
farmer can have cheaply made, if he
has old wheels whose hubs are good,
but which cannot lie made strong
enough to bear up when long spokes
are used. The low wagon can be used
for years after tt is cut down for a
truck wagon. It will be nil the better,
however, if the outer rim is made
wider and is enclosed in a broad tire,
so that the wheel will not sink down
when going over the land.
The Boy of the Farm.
There's a hum of bees in the meadow,
Where the new-mown hay lies low,
There's a whetting of scythes in the dis
tance A musical, faint echo.
The warm, lazy airs of midsummer,
In waves of aroma creep,
Where stretched in the shade of a hay
Lies a barefoot boy, asleep.
Gay butterflies flit o'er the windrows,
In chime of the thistledown;
Spry grnsslKippers leap in the stubble,
And light on a stray hats crown;
And just on tle other side of the mound
With fraerant clover teeming.
Lips astain with the BtraVberry's blood,
Lies a barefoot boy, dtcnming.

To Fertilize House Plnpts. .
For house plants a mixture of one
pound of nitrate of potash and half a
pound of phosphate of lime, using a
tablespoonful of the mixture to a gallon
of water, will prove excellent. The
phosphate of lime should be as fine aa
powder, or a better mixture may be
used, consisting of one pound each of
phosphate of potash and nitrate of pot
ash. These articles may be obtained
in the crude form at any place where
chemicals ore sold.
Land Plaster on Potatoes.
The first application of Paris green to
potatoes to kill the potato liootlo should
lie with land plaster, A tablespoonful
to a half bushel of the plaster thorough
ly mixed will be strong enough. Not
only will the poison kill the potato
larvae, but tlie effect of the plaster will
be to make tlie vines grow stronger and
cause more copious dew on tho leaves,
which will destroy many potato beetles'
Ban Jose Pcnle.
The San Jose scale when it covers
the surface gives the bark a minutely
roughened, lncrusted nnd unhealthy
look, awl a dusty or dark grayish hue.
It can be distinguished from other
common scales by Its circular form,
smaller size, and the absence of eggs
beneath the scales. When the surface
Is rubbed with the finger, it has a

Keep the early pullets for next year's
layers, nnd kill off the young cockerels
for market, so as to give the pullets
more room. They should be kept in
good growing condition, so as to reach
maturity liefore November, in order to
become winter layers. Late pulleta
seldom begin to lay until spring.
Asparagus was originally a wild sea-
