' When I was young at fanning,
I'd wa,tch the turnip tops, '
And quickly go to wishing,
Por good, big, rousing crops.
1 wished for mammoth pumpkin ,
All others to outweigh;
In short, I took to nothing '
But wishing all the day.
A solace sweet and soothing
In every wish would lurk,
Till dreaming speculation
Seemed surer than hard work.
I wished my cellar full of
Potatoes with a will;
I wlBhed the granary groaning
With corn to go to mill.
While other fanners wished for
A good supply of rain,
I thought It as sound logic
. To wish for fruit and grain.
And so I went on wishing,
Contented with my lot .
In autumn no potatoes
Were boiling In my pot. ' ,
I tell you I'd discovered
That wishing only breeds
Keen disappointment; wishing
Won't pull up choking weeds;
It won't hoe corn In summer,
Or husk It In the fall;
I tell you, boys, that wishing
Won't run a farm at all.
That winter my potatoes
I had to go and buy
Right from my smiling neighbors.
Who had a good supply.
They'd slyly nudge their elbows,
And taunt mo With a laugh,
That labor's wheat that's golden,
And speculation chaff.
I learned this goodly lessor
And In my heart it seems
One day of honest tabor
Is worth ten years of dreams.
And now In idly wishing,
My duty ne'er I shirk;
But just roll up my shtrt sleeves,
And like a beaver work.
A Frnit Picklntr Box.
A contributor to the New York Tnt-
nne offers the following suggestions:
The ordinary basket Is not a convenient
receptacle Into which to pick fruit from
a ladder. Too little of the opening Is
presented between the rounds, owtnir
to the round form of tlis basket's top.
The round form also keeps the basket
from being stable, as it Is constantly
swinging about on the one hook sup
porting It A frult-gatherlng box Is
Bnown in the cut which obviates both
these defects. Its handle Is made from
a flat hoop soaked in water and bent
into the proper shape. This handle can
be supported by two hooks, keeping the
box very firm. With a box the full
opening from one side to the other Is
afforded for putting In fruit If the
box Is carefully lined with a donhlo
thickness of burlap there will be less
likelihood of bruising the fruit In the
Fall riowlag to Kill Insects.
One of the benefits of fall nlowincr
that more than compensates Its disad
vantage U wasting the surface soil by
blowing and washing, Is that It de
stroys millions of destructive Insects.
In orchards especially, many of the
larvae that are Injurious are hidden un
der leaves or stones, where thev will ho
partly protected from wet and will
mere enaure any amount or dry freez
ing without Injury. But turning the
soil over to the depth of five or six
Inches disturbs these lusect arrange
ments. Moisture means that the larva
must begin to prepare for emerging
from Its cocoon, or If already an Insect
It may be teumted to move to escAno it
Any such movement before there Is set
tled warm weather Is death to It
Owing to the great amount of san k
thick stalk" contains, buckwheat cannot
well bo plied up In sacks or put In
mows. We have known It to be thresh
ed by machine, but It took so much
power to thresh the buckwheat by
threshing machine that the experiment
was not profitable. It Is extremely easy
with a little beating of the head to dis
lodge every grain of buckwheat But
when stalks and all are put In It, has
to be done very slowly, else the green
FRUIT PICKING BOX. I
buckwheat stalks would clog the cylin
ders and stop the machine. It takes
much more coal to thresh buckwheat
with a steam thresher than it does to
thresh grain whose straw Is dry.
Cora fodder, if secured when It Is In
Its best condition, Is almost as good as
hay for cattle and sheep; and for milch
cows there Is no other feed that, I have
ever tested equal to it Just as soon as
the corn Is well in the dough it Is ripe
enough to cut. Some farmers lot their
corn stand tin the stalks got dead ripe
before cutting. Corn thus cared for
may be a little heavier after It is husk
ed (at least It Is so claimed by some),
but the waste In fodder more than con
sumes the extra grain In we ght of corn.
The average day laborer will, if cut
ting by the shock, cut seventy shocks
containing sixty-four hills in each
shock, per day. An expert worker will.
In medium corn, cut from 100 to 123
shocks in the same length of time, and
of equal size. Twisted rye straw or
marsh hay Is good to use, although the
best thing that Is being used is a No. 9
wire, cut about 8 feet long, with a
hook bent on each end, so that they
can be quickly fastened or unfastened.
These wire bands can be saved and
used year after year.
Hoofs Like Horns.
Here's the Dlcture of a. frrok mw
owned by a Massachusetts farmer. The
abnormal hoofs are apparently of reg
ular horn substance, and further than
to seriously Impede the animal's loco
motion do not. otherwise seem to Inter
fere with the performance of her ordi
nary functions. These hoofs, or horns.

Fall Seeding of Corn GronnA.
A crop of corn may be succeeded th
following year with crass for nimtiirlrnf
or hay if the land Is fitted right A
light plowing, or rather cultivating so
as to Dull down the corn butts. arA
then following them with the roller to
press them Into the surface will be all
that Is needed. Then run over the lev.
eled surface with the smoothing har
row, which will roughen It and sow the
seed. If a permanent tiasture la desir
ed sow some June grass seeds with the
timothy, and In the spring sow some
clover seed. All will crow, and th
first year each will help the other, as
the more gross or clover growth can be
cot on the land the earlier it will itr
out when spring comes. Most attempts
to seed without grain fail because not
enough seed Is sown.
Barreling Applet and Pears,
In barreling apples It Is quite safe to
pile the apples as much as two Inches
above where the head will fit In the
chine. If pressed down evenly there Is
elasticity enough In the apple skin to
allow such compression without bruis
ing it If the apples sre not thus press
ed down they will shrink so as to be
loose In the barrel, and will thus bruise
n handling the barrels worse than
they would If pressed down. Tears
cannot be thus pressed down. They are
best packed with a paper around each,
which will keep It from touching its
Wasps Injuring Fruits.
Most of the puncturing of ripe fruits
on which bees are often found gather
ing the Juices is done by wasps, though
many kinds of grapes have tender
skins, which ate cracked either by
burstlngof the sap from Inside or by ac
cidental Injuries, Honey bees not only
do not but cannot puncture them. On
the contrary, what they do for the In
jured" fruit Is to take away some of the
exuding Juices and thus help to pre
vent It from decaying so fast as It
would otherwise do.
Filthy quarters produce 'sickness, and
sick hens will not produce eggs.
Cull out the poor layers and give the
prolific hens more room to work.
After the second year the hen's value
as a winter egg-producer lessens.
Green rye is the best form for feed
ing; as a grain It Is a poor poultry food.
Make the hens work. Exercise helps

Boiled buckwheat fed once or twice

Ten cents should feed a chick, and It
