Farm Notes J
What Farmers Need Most.
Firat of all, a farmer needs ability, a
love for the work, a strong, eound and
healthy body, a sound mind, a good
education, wisdom, good sense and
judgment, says Samuel Rowland. Ho ,
needs to bo honest, just, temperate, a j
keen discerner of men and things, and
one who can rulo his own spirit.
JFarming is .an occupation so far reach
ing and wide in scope as to requiro
greater ability and of more various
kinds than most other employments. A
merchant buys and sell, but produces
nothing; a manufacturer makes from
what is already produced, but the farm
er actually produces something, and
thereby furnishes food and material for
raiment for the living. In many voca
tions there are places for men of e
idea, but a farmer, in general farming,
must be a man of many ideas and of
great versatility. He needs to be a
Etudent, for ho has much to learn ; he
needs a general knowledge of all things
pertaining to a farm ; he should bo a
chemist, that he may know the compo
sition of soils and fertilizers, and what
different kinds of vecetalion require for
He should be a lover not only of the
usefuhbut of tho beautiful. He should
be, in some degree, a landscape garden'
er. horticulturist, entomologist, or or
nithologist, carpenter, machinist,
plumber, veterinary doctor, fence, road
and bridge builder. He should have
some knowledge of hydraulics and
drainage and manv other thincs. Ho
needs to know how to plant trees
to care for them after planting, andKtfor broilers are the Wyandottes
when and how to plant and sow, how to or Pivrncuth Kocks. The best for ro-ist-
prune trees ana wnen not to prune.
needs to know how to manage and teach
men; he must furnish brain, while the
help furnish muscle. A farmer needs c
large bump of order and have a place
for everything and everything in ite
Everything needs the best manage
ment that the best results in3y follow.
Kindnessjto all animals is very essen
tial for their own good and the owner's
profit. An animal will reciprocate"
kindness often as readily as a -son. A
horse and a dog know more than some
people think they do. A horse is more
patient than a man, and a dog is often
more unselfish. The love of an animal
is genuine ; he has not as many axes to
grind as some men have. Horses and
dogs frequently show more good .sense
and possess more Christian graces than
The farmer needs abilty successfully
to combat ignorance. Ignorance will
grease a horse's hoof "to make it grow"
will clip a horse's ears "to cure balki
ness;" will cut off a cow's tail and bore
holes in her horns and put in medicine
"to cure horn distemper." If a horse is
ill, ignoranee gives him a dose of stuff
that is simply vile and pernicious. A
farmer needs to know that a horse is
one of God's noblest creatures, and, if
iH, is deserving of just as careful treat
ment as is given a man.
Trees, both useful and ornamental,
Ehould have proper care and attention.
Some people seem to think that trees
are only made to cut down. Road com
missioners are known to advise the cut
ting down of a row of beautiful maples
by the roadside, which are a charm to
the eye and a comfort to man and beast
because "they sour the soil." Here is
another example of ignorance and
blindness. A lady, after spending
years in beautifying her home with
treee, flowers and beautiful shrubbery,
sold her place, and the first thing ber
successor did was to cut .down some of
the choice trees and all of the shrub
bery, which he called bushes.
The farmer needs to know that a
beautifully formed maple tree as Nature
made it is not improved by cutting off
half of the limbs, which is worse than
-Iejtrnction. The farmer needs the ac
quisition of a barometer, and to observe
weather eigns that work may be done at
the proper time and crops not suffer
from neglect. The farmer needs a good
helpmate, with ability like his own, to
manage the affairs of the house. He
needs the daily news, that he may know
what the world is doing generally, and
he needs several good agricultural pa
pers as a guide and help in matters per
taining to the farm.
A Bcrapbook will be found useful and
helpful. There are many items, hints
and ideas that can be clipped from pa
pers that are valuable and can be pre
served in this way better than in any
other, and will be found convenient for
reference. It is said that a farmer needs
a good farm. A farmer of ability can
nave a home that is convenient, attrac
tive and beautiful ; one that the child
ren love, and which the boys are not in
clined to leave. If a farmer and his
cons can run the farm with little or no
help, there is a great gain, for good
jjireu uejp at ijie present aay is very
difficult to obtain
For National IrrlgaUon Fnnd.
Under rapid questioning by the op
ponents of the repeal of the desert law's
in the House committee on irrigation.
George H. Maxwell detailed the in
formation that the Great .Northern, tho
Korthern Pacific, the Southern Pacific,
the Santa Fe, the Union Pacific, and tho
Burlington roads each contribute f G000
a year and the Rock Island $3000 a year
towards a fund to be used by the Na
tional irrigation association and disburs
ed by Mr. Maxjrell in the interest of
that organization. Other contributions
to this fund bring the amount up to
$50,000 a year. This money has been
collected during the past five years and
ia still being paid. It was used to secure
the passage of the national irrigation
act in a campaign of education.
Germany Stops Our Meat Trade,
One year's operation of the German
meat law-, which went into effoct in
April, 1903, has extinguished American
trade in meats with the fatherland.
Representatives! one of tho largest
Chicago packing companies furnish the
following resume of the eituation:
"The burdensome provisions of tho
exclusion law have accomplished their
purpose of bringing American meat im
ports fo a dead stop. Government in
spectors arbitrarily refuse to admit
American shipments on the ground
hat they arc prepared with boras and
boracic acid, notwithstanding that tho
best German experts have pronounced
them free from such curatives."
American packers have informed tho
Washington authorities that the only
possible way or bringing Germany to
terms on the meat question is relentless
retaliation on Go: man wines and other
Teutonic products known to bo adulter
ated. Meantime tho price of me.it 8 o
all kinds has rieen to unprecedentfd
figures in Germany. Kacoit, winch in
eaten in large quantities by tho working
classes, is especially high. Canned
meats come next in price.
An experienced pimttryman eays:
"There are breeds for all purposes
summer eggs, winter eggs, broilers,
roasters and general purposes. We
have had heavy egg reiords with the
nonsotting breeds, but the bulk of their
production is in spring and early fall
Unless under very favorable circum
stances, they are but ordinary layers
during the winter. Our winter-laying
breeds are of the broody class, and they
give comparatively few eirgs during tho
warm season of tho year. Much of
their time is taken in incubatii'g. Then
we have a class that are better adupteu
for broiler raising than for roasting pur
poses. On the other hand, we haw
breeds that make letter, roasiers thai
broilers. Again, we haw jieuer 1 pur

Andalusians, Spanish, l'olith, Ham
burgs and Houdaus. The winter layer
are the Asiatics Brahmas, Cochins
and Lanuehans and tho Americai.s
l'lvuiouth Koeks and Wvaiidoltes. The
era are the Lrahmas or the Langshans.

The efficiency of kcro?enc emulsion
depends on how it is made. The most
important part is the agitation of the
materials. Simply stirring tho mixture
will not answer, as violent agitation,
by pumping the liquid back into itself,
is riecessary. Use soft water and avoid
water containing lime, and also use
plenty of soap. An excellent method is
to shave half a pound of soap "and add it
to a gallon of boiling water. Let the
water boil until the soap ia dissolved,
and then remove the vessel from the
fire. Next, add 2 gallons of kerosene
and a gill of crude carbolic acid, while
the water is hot, and briskly agitate
until the result is a substance having
the appearance of rich cream. It re
quires about ten nrnutes to agitate the
mixture, as no free kerosene should be
noticed. When cold add 20 gallons of
soft water and spray with a nozzle. The
carbolic acid is not included in the usu
al formula, and it will be found of ad
vantage. Use the crude acid net the
refined), which is a cheap substance.
Kerosene and crude carbolic acid will
not mix with water, hut both substances
form an emulsion with strong soapsuds.
Good roads and how to maintain them
is a problem that is taxing the best
minds In this country today, and a so
lution of which wonkl bo a great boon
to this nation, says J. J. Darrow of New
.York in Practical Farmer. In this coun
ty (Madison) the money system is in
vogue in several towns and is giving
satisfaction. In one town they are
making and keeping their roads in good
condition foi $2 per mile per year by
contract. That it is possible to do it for
that sum is not questioned by those
who have used them. A regular outfit
of three double teams and four men
operating a gxxl machine will make an
average of two miles on dirt road per
day, leaving it turupiked and smoothed,
with the ditches well opened, in good
condition for hauling loads or pleasure
driving. Should it remain dry these
roads will remain serviceable for the
season ; unfortunately, should it be tvet
and heavy loads drawn over them with
those road-destroying narrow tired wag
ons, they soon become rutted and bad.
Is there a remedy that is practical to
obviate this condition? I think there
is, by using broad tires with axles of
unequal length for heavy loading.
With a 6-inch tire and the hind axle 12
inches longer than the front, 24-inch
surface would be compacted with each
load passing over the road, doing as
effectual work as could be done with a
steam roller of light weight, continually
improvirrg the road. The same load on
a wagon with tire 134 inches would
cover a ."urfaco 33 inches in width, cut-

CHILDREN HOBOED OF THEIR
The niot serious thing in life is ma
ternity. The child who inherits weak
ness ;s handicapped for lift- in the Strug
gle for existence. The weak and sickly
mother surelv devotes her offspring to
misery and misfortune. The romantic
idea of marriage is based on love aud love
alone. The scientific idea of marriage
demands sound health as a Iwsis of mat
rimony. The utter helplessness of love is
written in a thousand experiences of
young motherhood. The child, the
mother would die for, tries in her anus,
and she is too weak and worn to comfort
it. She can do naught but weep in
As surely as the most serious thing in
Hie is maternity so the most necessary
thing for the prospective mother is pre
naratiori. For rtrenaration is rossiile.
i There is, ia general, no need for the
I weakness and weariness so often associ
I ted with maternitv. There is no need
for the nervous anxiety, the prolonged
birth paags, and after enervation, so
commonly experienced by mothers.
In this day, even women understand
the training necessary for athletic ex
ercise. They know that to successfully
sustain the strain of outdoor sports they
must prepare themselves by training.
And yet the average woman will face the
great strain of maternity without the
lightest preparation for the extraordin
ary eventbeforeher. Nerves, muscles are
all to be submitted to an extraordinary
strain and yet there is no attempt to fit
them for the ordeal.
The fact needs to be impressed on
every woman that she can prepare for
the strain of motherhood as she can pre
pare for any other extraordinary demand
to be made upon the vital forces. The
nature of this preparation is well set
forth in the following letter :
"I take pleasure in informing you of
the birth of a boy in perfect health, on
May i?th, 1S99," writes Mrs. L. E. Orti,
of Waltonville. Pa., Box 25. "I cannot
find words sufficiently strong to express
to yon my thanks, for the baby's coming

further preparation and passes directly
into tho fourth stomach, where the act

The mechanism for conveying the 1111
