Ifnrul riorr for Know.
When tliero In niicL n tiunntlty of
ground io ho clcanod of inarr nn U
found n round tho average, firm home,
xoinotlilng morn thnn tho ordinary
miow Khovel Is needed. If tho snow
In deep nml the xpnee to bo cleared
consltlcrahle, then one should bring
Into uno h largo plovr with tho horso
to pull It. For a hand plovr nothing
l better than tho slmplo ono made In
the following innnnor;
Kelect two pieces of hoard frte from
knot, each three feet ion? and six
Inches wide Hovel the cud of each
I ward and nail thcni together In the
form of n V. If necesiwry they may
he braced at tlie wide end by atrip
three luchrn wide mid the necessary
length. Then pnt In a pole lire feet
long with n rroN piece at the upper
end. To ntrongthen the end In which
the handle In ItiHerted cut n block of
wood ns large ni possible, and fit ft
siui'Lx lu.Tt) rum ran s.tow.
In the end whero tlie two pieces of
board Join. '
This will make It easier to Insert
the handle firmly and will make tbe
sldo pieces stronger as well. The small
cut lu tho upper part of the Illustra
tion show clearly bow this block of
wool should be formed and the handle
Inserted to get the best results.
Thinning apples may be a profitable
operation under some circumstances;
but ns fruit Is ordinarily marketed In
tho commercial npple-erowliig sections
of New York, It Is not profitable. In
vestigations In thinning by the Now
York Agricultural Experiment Station
((icncvn) were carried on for four sea
sons In a commercial orchard. The re
sults, In Improvement of the fruit In
size, In color nnd In quality, were
mnrked, whenever fair to heavy crops
were borne on tlie trees, but tlie quan
tity of fruit was usually lessened; so
that unless a higher price la secured
for tho improvement In quality Uie ex
pense of tho operation Is not repaid.
Full details of these testa are given in
Bulletin No. 230 of the station, which
any apple grower or other person In
terested may secure without cost, by
sending his name and address to the
director, with n request for this bulle
tin. Any available station bulletin
may be obtained lu this way.
Bllrrlnif Cooking Food.
Where more or less food for stock
I cooked, Homo handy way of stirring
It ought to bo devised. Of course, the
old-fnshloued Indie, or the great wood
en spoon, Is nhvays available, but If
the quantity Is large, to usn these In-
Mrunicnts means aching arms and
shoulders. A stirrer which will save
much lubor Is readily made In the fol
lowing manner. Make a Minft of a
strip of wood two Inches thick nnd
lung enough so that It will extend
three or four Inches above the top of
the kettle. At the bottom or till shnft
make paddles by crossing two thin
boards two or three Indie wide.
Fasten n crnuk to the top of the
shaft and to till crank fasten n pole,
or not. ns preferred. Then prepare n
strip of board b!x or eight Inches wide,
bore n hole through the middle,
through which to pass the idinft.
iiuitch both ends to tit over the handle
of the kettlo and at one end tlx n
slide nml n set screw to hold It In
place. If the cooking of the food
tor stock Is done nwny fioin the
house, ns It ought to be, one should
build n fireplace of bricks nnd evmeut
In which to set tlie kettle. The Illus
tration Bhows both the fireplace, or
pot, nn suggested, nnd the plan for

Color of Honey.
The color of honey vurles greatly, I

have no control lu regulating the color
of honey; lu fact, It seems to make no

light or dark, as tliero Is plenty of IL
Light honey Is not always tho best lu

Tho secret of success in mnklntr tho

most satisfactory manner. In making
tho change It Is better to underfeed
during the first week or two rather
thnn overfeed, because It may take
months to correct tho Injurious result
of overfeeding nt such n time. There

them In close yards suddenly, because
they will fret considerably and may

Cabbngo aphis Is ono of our worst
cabbage pests. The lice multiply very
rapidly when conditions favor them
and are a source of great loss and
annoyance. They may bo killed only
by Insecticides that smother, or kill by
contact; ordinary poisons have no ef
fect on plant lice. Kerosene emulsion

Home Iucubutor Hint.
Do not turn tho eggs for three days
from beginning the hatch, nor after
the nineteenth day.
See that the Incubator seta perfectly
level, otherwise the egg chamber will
he warmer lu one place than another.
Use only the best oil, and feed and
trim the lamp every morning, no mat
ter how long It might bum without
Opeu the egg 'chamber only when
turning the eggs. Take the eggs out
to turn them, and shut the egg cham
ber while they aro out. Let the eggs
cool for from ten to thirty minutes, ac
cording to tho weather, every day.
Leave chicks In the Incubator from
twenty-four to thlrty-slx hours after
they are hatched; they do not nred
feeding for at lenst thlrty-slx hours
nfter they come from the shell. N.
Hire has provided for their sustenance
during this time.
Do not open the egg chamber after
the chickens begin to pip the shell,
even If' some chick seems to be having
n hard time to get out. A chick thnt
cnunq.t get out of tho shell without
help Is not worth saving. If the chicks
gasp and struggle, do not bother thorn
It Is good for them.
