It Is liy successive plantings of lieet
seed from the plants which shotted the
greatest percentage of sweet, that the
amount of saccharine matter in the
beet has been Increased from eight per
cent, from the best up to fourteen aim
veil eighteen per ceut., as some of the
Improved Krein h varieties have shown.
v" rln, a French seed grower, took
the lend lu these experienients. It
might lie supposed that in testing the
beets It would thereafter be impossible
to use such beets for planting, ltut
Vlliuorln was very careful in testing
to only scoop out a small part of I he
bulb, nuiiili. ring each specimen, and
when tht test of each was completed,
selecting those beets for seed which
yielded the richest Juices, ruder tills
treatment, however, the beets became
less productive than In those varieties
grown under natural conditions. 1W
slbly also It cannot be expected that
1 ts yielding such high percentages of
sweet should crow so large as do the
varieties whose sap Is not thus over
laden and can therefore flow more
easily. And yet It may not be any
harder for nature to change the car
bonic achl nas absorbed through the
licet leaves sweet than It Is Into starch,
each being different forms of the same
chemical substance, carlioii.
Flock in Kainy Weather.
Stock at pasture iu summer often suf
fer more from cold In wet weather
than they do from the cold of winter.
The constant evaporation of moisture
which Is hastened by the warmth gen
erated by the lsnly chills the skin, and
gives the animal what Is known as
cold, but Is really Internal fever. Milch
cows and those heavy with young suf
fer most, as they cannot so well run
around and thus keep their blood circu
lating. Kvery fanner has noticed that
after rain has fallen all day the milk
yield shrinks If the cow has been ex
posed to the wet. For this reason a
shed In the pasture field iiiny Is' a good
Investment. Better still Is It to get the
cows up to the barnyard under shelter
and cut some grass for them, giving a
bran mash to increase the nutrition.
Wet grass In Held or cut does not have
the proportion of nutriment to its bulk
that the same grass has In dry weather
with only Its ow n natural Juices in It.
A Clirop, Uootl Pllo.

and Ingenuity. If possible, construct

per ton of ensilage, tiet all the height
you can, rather than diameter. If n
already have a large silo and you are
troubled with mold over the top before
you get a layer fed off, divide It with
rough lumber, and so have two. Try
to get at least twenty-four feet In
height. Figure on a cubic foot per day
for each cow or steer to be fed. Ill

ful to have the silo double and large in
space ns a protection against frost.
Finst will get lu through one thlckneis,

Better use a rough hemlock, two thick
nesses, with waterproof building paper
between. Agriculturist.
Apple Tree Bnrern.
It behooves apple growers to be on
the lookout for the borer, which, If un
checked, will ruin their trees. The
parent of this Isirer Is a brown-iiiiil
white striped beetle, about three
fourths of an inch long and somewhat
plump, it lays Its eggs either at night
or very early In the morning, and Is
not easily seen against the apple trees.
Washing the trees with an emulsion
made of whale-oil soap and water, with
enough carbolic acid to make It smell
strongly, will keep the beetle away.
But it is safer to bind some clotn
around the tree trunk to the height of
two feet from the ground, and saturate
that wltli the emulsion, ns the odor will
remain through the whole season. In
stead of being washed away by rains,
as it might be on the tree. ;
Care of tiraln Drill.

Idle in use the friction prevents rust
formation, but If phosphate Is left In
the drill over night some Injury must
result. Worse still happens If the drill
s left out of doors to lie wet and rust

farmers who kept grain drills in gisid

they kept them under cover, and ai

A little thing happened down at the
home of Schilling' Best tea the other

and the most interesting feature of the
matter is that they could have got out
of paying it if they wanted to because
it was a v. .1 in 1 1 .ti y thing and no one
expected them to do it.
It seems that, in the earlier part of
the missing word contest, A. Schilling

of Schilling's Best yellow tickets before

It seen. fair that the consumers of
the tea should get those prizes. A
gmcer has a better oppoitiinity for col

a profit on the tea But two grocers
won the prizes, and A. Schilling & Co.
paid the motley.
Now comes the funny part they
