Ur. Bamutn'i breezy conversation was In
terspersed at frequent intervals with witty
anecdote and quaint sayings. He spoke
of an old lady who waa so deaf that, when
tome playful chaps fired a anall cannon near
tbe old lady's door, th merely said, "Com
In." "That was a pretty fair story when I
beard It some time ago," said tbe veteran,
"but 1 beard a good one a day or two since
that beat it Two geutlemen were walking
along a highway near a railroad. One of tb
pedestrian! was somewhat hard of hearing.
Along cam a train, and tbe engine emitted
a frightful shriek. 'H'm.'iaid tbe deaf one,

THE FARM AND GARDEN
Corn Sjlage the Sheet Anchor of
the Dairy Business.
REALLY GOOD COWS ARE SCARCE.
One Should Understand. What Is Meant by
the words " a Dairy Form " to
Judge a Good Cow.
One man aay "breed" makes flu
cow. Another man aay " feed " nuke,
the cow. Tbe wiser man say " breed"
and "feed," both combined, mike ths
cow. It I those farmers who are seem!
ingly Incapable of caring for and onder.
standing the importance of both propo.
sitiona who so swell the ranks of unprof.
itable cow farmers.
Good green clover hay. cut and sto.mi
and mixed with grain, is a food that the
IlurmiJH euw mco very Kindly to. A
bushel basketful of clover beads and
leaves, gathered on the barn floor to 1
bowlful of bot water and mixed 'with
grain will be still better relieved. In
spite of the past low price of hogs a good
brood bow may prove the moHt valuable
animal on the farm before 18J3.
There are hundreds of provident farm,
era who manage to have a silo full ill
summer ready for emergencies. Are not
canned fruits and food good for Immani
in summer? Of course they are. lhnr
canned food is good for cows everv day
In the year. If varied to embrace clover
oats and especially peas, all the better
and more palatable ; but corn silage U
the sheet anchor of the business.
Hiram Smith kept four stripper coti
the first year after he made a silo in the
stable and in a small yard for four sum
mer month on silage to find out what
he could depend upon in using silage for
summer food, and learned the fourcowi'
yield averaged as well as the rest of the
herd, partly pastured and partly siled
all having some grain food every day.
He held that it was practical to feed cows
the year around.
Said a dairyman the other day: "The
demand for my butter exceeds the sup
ply. I have been trying to buy fome
good cows, but eo far have notsucreeiled.
It la astonishing how scarce gond row;
are." True, really good cows are tcarw
yet think ot the time, money, eloquence
and printers' ink devoted to the cteation
of good cows for these many yearBl All
neutralized by indifference to or ignor
ance of the laws of breeding.
The Committee on Agriculture ha re
ported to the House a bill designed to
make oleomargarine manu'actnred in
one State or Territory for shipment into
another State or Territory subject to the
laws and restrictions of the State or
Territory to which it is carried. Sow
let every farmer who wants to see this
swindle and cheat brought to the bull
ring write bis Congressman a postal card
and say bo. A enow storm of postal
card Irom the farmers will have more
effect on Congress than a dozen po'itical
conventions. Try it.
In learning how to judge a good cow
study to understand what is meant by
the words "a dairy form." On this
point farmers fail more than anywhere
else, and if they will hut address them
selves to this study, they will find it a
domain broad enough to employ all the
intelligence they can muster. Trotting
men understand the value of having a
machine built in proper shape for trot
ting purposes. They have made a study
of their business. But the cow men by
the thousands are still doing bumneei
with their machine without any refer
ence whatever to the u?e of An intelli
gence that shall bring them a profitable
judgment in (electing a cow.
"A Splendid GardVn."
My garden 1b ten rods long and eight
wide. I plow as Boon in the spring e it
gets dry enough to work. While plow
ing I call all my hens in aay 15J to
pick up the worms ; they have a feast.
Tbe next day I harrow tine, and plant
and do all I can to keep the hens at work
to get rid of worms. I then sow all email
J I .1 I .L .1 ll
eeeu in rowB tne wnoie lengtc 01 me wi
den, as straight as a line can be drawn,
twenty-eight inches apart, raking wide
enough for one row, aud draw line and
mark with end of hoe handle close to
line about an inch deep. Then I sow
tbe seeds, such as beets, lettuce, onions,
cabbage, carrots, spinach, parsnips, to
matoes, etc., remove the line and pat the
dirt on the seeds with the back of the
rr.ke, so aa to cover the seeds about hll
an Inch dppn unit lhv will alwavserow.
Next I rake enough for another row and
sow, and so on until all the small feeds
are sown. I plant two rows of English
multiplier onions one row of large and
one row of small in the same way, only
I use the corner of the hoe for a marker,
for they must be planted deeper, and 1
couple of rows of peas a foot apart; cover
as before with the back of tbe rake, and
pat the soil firm; they are sure to
grow. Treat cucumliers, squash, beans,
ttc, the same, onlv farther apart; pots
toea, 3 feet; corn,' S4 feet The who e
garden ia planted in rows lengthwise. It
is a great pleasure to run a good culti
vator up and down between the rows
and see the weeds turn up their toee and
die. Try this plan, dear reader. l ift
hens roam over my garden all they wish,
snd somehow they don't scratch up any
thing, perhaps because I feed them every
day and have no dog. It may be they
don't know where the seeds are 0r
thing I know, all pawers-by look witn
admiration, and often say: "Oh, see
what a splendid garden ; I never saw the
like of it."

Heavily-laden trees, which !n npite of
proper pruning and thinning are likely
to spread apart and split down by the
weight of their cop, can oft-n be ade
quately sustained by the nse of rope in
stead of props. In many cases a bale
rope or other rope, passed conpletelT
around the tree at a proper height auJ
caught here ard there over a twig '0
to prevent slipping down, will afford !
the help needed to help the treetostana
up well with a good load. Of course, m
the pressure is downward and outward
on all parts of the branches, each sideoi
the tree pulls against an opposite sue,
and none can droop if the rope ie strong
