A number of these Hinall house may

Old I'rlnclplcH In KnrmliiK.
While it Is undoubtedly true that
farmers have learned much about farm
ing during lute years that has material
ly helped them In making the form pay
better rcturns.-lt is also true, I11 many
cases, that they are getting away from
some of the fundamental principles of
correct farming. The tendency to sell
ns much as possible from the farm Is
too strong nnd too far-reaching. Time
wns when sales from the farm were
made ouly nfter provision bnd been
made for the living and comfort of the
occupants, human and animal. Then,
too, the soil was considered, and If It
needed anything produced on the farm
It was furnished. These things well
provided for, the surplus. If nny, wns
sold. As a result the stock was well
fed and the manure went to Improvo
tho soil. True, there was not so much
ready cash handled as now, but there
were fewer things for which cash was
needed, for everything needed that
could be produced on the farm was so
produced. It is admitted that In this
age, when things are deemed necessi
ties that were formerly thought luxu
ries, more rendy cash Is needed, but, nt
least, we can so arrange things In farm
ing that the cash Is not obtained at tho
expense of the animals or the vitality
of the farm.
UhIiik Abandoned Pastures.
In many sections of the country, but
perhaps moro largely in the East, one
will Hud on the farms Acids which had
been used for pasture uutll they wero
no longer profitable for that purpose
and not thought worth breaking up and
rc-seedlng. Eight out of every ten of
such pastures could be turned Into fer
tile fields by proper hnndllug. One ex
cellent plan for doing this Is to break
up this pasture, manuring It as heavily
as oilo can afford, and plant to corn.
Cultivate tho corn several times during
the growing period nnd sow. In August
or September, to some cover crop. The
following spring plant to potatoes. Fu
ture crops should bo according to fer
tilizing nnd what 0110 wishes to grow.
The main point In this Item Is to call
attention to tho value of these aban
doned pastures for tho llrst crop of
corn. Enlugh corn mny bo grown to
carry a herd of pigs to a profitable
market and nt an expense that will
hardly bo felt. Exchange.
Ail Kcouomlcul Itatlou,
Wuero there Iu fair stock of clover
hay on hand, and an abundance of
corn stover, cows may bo fed very
economically on n ration of ten pounds
of clover hay, fifteen pounds of corn
stover, cut or shredded If tho latter,
tho clover ration may bo reduced one
quarter four pounds of wheat bran,
four pounds of corn meal and one
pound of oil meal a day. This Is not a
heavy ration, and probably would not
do for n largo animal, or ouo whoso
milk flow was heavy, but It will an
swer very well for thd averngo farm
cow, keep her lu good milk nnd bring
her out lu the spring In good shape. If
It Is posslblo to havo tho corn stover
shredded by all means do It, whatever
stock Is fed with It, for tho butts nro
very rich, and all animals will cut thorn

the above ration, plenty of pure water,
and n warm, sunny and well ventllatcil
stable the average cow will fare well,
and the farmer who suffered from tho
drought will have a comparatively
small feed bill nt the close of winter.

In sections where sugar beets can bo

they should form one of the crops for
stock feed even If not grown for fac

will form a fair part of the ration this
winter when grain Is scarce and high
In price. Some complaints have been
made about the sugar beets, but. In
most cases, this Is due to using them
too freely. No green food or root crop
should be used at the expense of grain
or roughage, except in part, although
they may be more freely used than they
are. especially sugar beets. They nro
especially desirable In the early spring
for sows that have farrowed, nnd for
new rollch cows, greatly Increasing tho
milk flow. All farm stock Is fond of
sugar beets, and If they are on the farm
or con be bought at n fair price they
should form part of the ration as long
as they mny be had or until the stock
Is turned out In the spring.
Fruit AsHortlnu Table.
The cut shows an assorting table for
fruit or roots, which Is about 3 by 12
feet and nearly 3 feet high, with a four
Inch rim all around so as to bold about
six bushels of apples or potatoes and
bring them right up so that the men
can stand up straight In sorting. Speak

this table: With a wire scoop shovel
we scoop them up from the cement bot

on the floor to be swept up and taken
out. The table stands In a good light,
and the sorting Is far more rapid, easy
and accurate than when you kneel
down and sort from tho big pile. The
legs should be well braced both length
wise and crosswise. We have two of
these tables, and they nre a great help
nnd a great saving of backache and

sand bushels of apples and potatoes In
