IThla matter must not be reprinted with
out iclal permission.
If arrangements were not made at
the time the lochouse was built and
filled for the drainage of the water
therefrom, this should be attended to
before the warm weather sets In.
Those who have tried it recommend
hot soapsuds as an excellent means of
ridding cabbage and cauliflower of the
green worms which Infest them. A
strong resin soap and soft water give
Ground tobacco placed where the
sheep can get what they want will
rid and keep them free from attacks
of stomach worms. This seems to be
a case where the acquiring of the to
bacco habit is really an aid to health.
Rather oddly, while dairy cows seem
to show an Instinctive aversion to
profane and rough language In their
caretakers and will shrink In their
milk if this becomes the rule, they do
not mind whistling or a song In the
least, but seem rather to enjoy it.
Dampness, blight and rot funguses
go hand In hand. On this account
many irrigated sections of the semi
arid west are almost entirely free from
these pest, due to the bright, fine
weather which prevails almost unin
terruptedly during the growing season.
A dollar a bushel Is a good price for
wheat, but the first prize bushel which
was recently exhibited at the meeting
of the Wisconsin Agricultural Experi
ment association brought $04. It was
of the winter variety and will doubt
less be used for seed in the growing
of prize wheat for next year.
The spraying of previously untreat
ed orchards can be counted upon to
increase the yield of fruit from three
to four times as well as to remark
ably improve Its quality. What it wllJ
do for a given orchard can easily be
worked out on the above basis. The
cost of spraying good sized bearing
trees In materials, labor and machin
ery should not exceed 20 cents annual
ly for three or four sprayings.
The shakes, or long split shingles,
which have been used in many sec
tions of the west In place of the ordi
nary shingle, are cut chiefly from the
sugar pine, which possesses a re
markably straight and even grain.
The water follows the grooves of the
grain very closely, while the method
of laying them Insures a good circula
tion of air and tends to check the rot
which la so destructive of closely laid
The Delicious apple when tasted ful
ly bears out its name, being juicy and
of a delicious flavor and possessing a
red color that is hardly surpassed by
the Bpltzenburg. However, It Is ten
der like the Jonathan and of about the
same season and should be put on the
market by Christmas time if the con
sumer is to get it at its prime. The
Delicious apple has been on the mar
ket but a few years, being originated
by a southern Iowa nurseryman.
Many a municipality has a bad blot
on Its reputation because of the wretch
ed condition of the thoroughfares lead
ing thereto when timely work done
with a road grader and drag would
greatly Improve their condition. In
too many cases these same "rocky"
roads are found In townships and
towns whose road supervisors or street
commissioners are drawing good sal
aries for taking care of the highways,
while the equipment for keeping them
in order is acquiring a coat of rust In
some vacant lot or alley.
