The megaphone has come into almost
universal use at athletic and aquatic
races and contests because it enables
the judges and other officers to make
announcements that can be heard all
over the field. Its adoption has been
somewhat hampered by the size of the
instrument, which is too bulky to be
conveniently transported, but this has
been overcome by making them collaps
ible like the drinking cup made for
travelers and picnickers. The folding
megaphone is made in sections, one fit
ting in the other, and when not in use
the horn collapses into a package about
the size of a hat box.

Gratifying Letters to Mrs. Pirk'
ham From Happy Women.
"I Owe You My Lifo.*
Mrs. E. WooLmsF.R.
Mills, Neb., writes:
"D ear M rs . P inkham :—I owe my
life to your Vegetable Compound. The
doctors said I had consumption and
nothing could be done for me. My
menstruation had stopped and they
said my blood was turning to water. I
had several doctors. They all said I
could not live. I lregan the use of Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
and it helped me right away; menses
returned and I have gained in weight.
I have better health than I have had for
years. It is wonderful what your Com
pound has done for me.”
Destruction of Weeds.
A few hours' work in spraying or
dusting plants in order to destroy in
sects or disease may not only save
crops this year, but also greatly lessen
the work of next season. But such la
bor must be applied at the right time.
The same with weeds, which produce
millions of seeds. When they are al
lowed to grow until nearly matured be
fore they are destroyed they take from
the land tlie plant food that should sus
tain the crops grown thereon. If the
destruction of weeds is done when they
are small, they are then out of Hie way
before they can harm the crops and
the soil. When the farmer postpones
his attack on weeds he incurs the risk
of not being able to eradicate them at
some critical period of their existence,
and the pests will then have done dam
age by depriving the crop of moisture
and plant food when the season is most
propitious for growth. It is the lessen
ing of the work next year that should
always be kept In view, Profit on the
farm is not made in a year, but in a
series of years. Work done at a loss
to-day may bring a fair profit during
the next season. The most profitable
work Is spraying to destroy insects and
the keeping down of weeds and grass.
A Grain Room.
On many farms not a little grain is
fed to the stock. Where no room is set
apart in the stable for a grain, or feed,
room a good deal of inconvenience, and
much extra work, is experienced. In
most barns it is not convenient to pro
vide a feed room from the present ac
commodations. In such a case a small
room can well be added to the stable
Taking Inventory on the Form.
It is doubtful if there is a merchant
in the entire United States, doing a
thousand dollars' worth of business In
a year, who does not begin immediate
ly after the first of January to rake an
account of stock, and by an account
of stock on hand, his sales, his bills
payable, and his bills receivable, he is
able to determine whether the business
has been done during the last year at a
profit or at a loss. He then proceeds
to lay the plans for the conduct of his
business in the year to come. The mer
chant who does not do tills, and is
known not to do this, will speedily lose
credit among the bankers and business
men with whom he deals, and would be
considered in imminent danger of
bankruptcy, for only In this way can he
find out where he stands financially.
We doubt if there is one farmer who
at the first of January or at any other
period of the year regularly takes
stock, casts up his accounts, and finds
out the amount of profit or loss.—Field ,
Cultivation in Dry Weather,
Whenever there seems danger that
corn or potatoes will suffer from
drought all tile cultivation should be
near the surface. That will provide a
slight mulch of dry soil, and will keep
the soil all the molster below it. as
the mulch prevents surface evapora
tion. If there are light rains, as there
will sometimes be even in dry times,
follow witli the cultivator, turning
down all the soil moistened by the rain,
and turning to the surface some of the
dry soil below. When on going through
the field after a rain you seem to leave
the soil dryer than before ft was culti
vated you may know that you are do
ing a good work. The water is put
down where the corn or i>otato roots
will quickly find it. instead of being
left on the surface to evaporate.

Experiments to determine the value

show that to produce one pound of live
pork with shelled corn costs 1.1» cents,
and to produce one jsiund of pork from
dry wheat the cost is 4.57 cents. The
cost varies, owing to the difference in
the prices of the foods. Pork from a
