The demand for iork this year has
astonished even tho most sangulno
friends of the hc,g. Iloth fresh nnd
cured meatn have lavn taken In largo
volumo right along at prices which
were w high thnt they woro exjiected
to check consumption. There are three
reasons why this condition hns existed
nnd still exists. First Is the prosper
ity of the South, a largo consumer cf
cured meab. Tbo Southern trade wns
novor larger than It is to-dny. Noxt
U tbo growing foreign trade, which
Ilko our own, seems to proceed regard
less of prices. And. finally, tho ooplo
of this cciuutry huvo learned to out
bacon. Its consumption Is unprece
dented In our history, and Is still grow
ing. Thoro hns Ikhiii no shortage in
numliers of hogs, but n vastly Increased
demand. ThU Is why prophecies based
on hog supplies hnve failed nnd are

by tramping; for which reason not

To give somo iden of how weeds

plant of pepper grass will produce IS,
(KM) seeds; dandelion, 12,000; shep
herd's purse, 37,000; wbent thief, 7.

burdock, -13,000. Tho Importnnco of not
allowing n Blnglo weed to produce seed
cannot bo alluded to, too frequently.
A single hour's work In destroying
weeds may save weeks of labor next

der ieople are not more careful. Conn
try boys often think It "smart" to
hitch up n green colt and drlvo to town
the first trip. It looks dnshlng and
brave, but It In really senwles. A
frightened young nnlrnnl threw Itself
on n paied street of n town the first
time It was taken there and broke It

There are two ways of completely
destroying weeds. One Is to let them
hnve the opportunity to grow, nnd, by
frequently cultivating them, turn them
under ns fast ns they mnke their ap
pearance; the other being to crowd
them out by growing some crop that
will not give the weeds n chance to
grow. No system of cultivation will
kill nil tbo weeds If n crop Is desired
Huch as corn for the grass nml
weeds will only be kept down so Ion(f
ns cultivation lasts, especially as corn
Is usunlly "lnld by" nt n time when
the weeds are producing seeds, thus es
tablishing themselves for the succeed
