As people are known and judged by
their manners and the way they cen-
duct themselves when in the company
of others, it should always be born in
mind, therefore, that politeness ought
to begin at home. The story is told
of a young wife who was unfortunate
enough to have a crank for a hus- |
band; one of those who do not consid-
er it obligatory to treat wives with
respect, tenderness of deference. He
was “a good provider,” as it is called,
but he thought his duty stopped there. |
Before marriage he was devotion it-
self, to the fair creature who gave
him her heart and hand, but after the
honeymoon trip—in fact, before it
was ended—his true nature asserted
itself and he treated her as though
she were of the smallest consequence.
She bore all this with patience, but
at last her spirit rose, and she deter-
mined to assert herself. One night
as he was putting on his coat prepar-
atory to spending a few hours at the
club, she said, “John, they say that;
when you are away from home you|
are one of the pleasantest and most
' delightful men in the world.” He
said nothing, but looked at her
strangely as he opened the hall door
to go out. He returned from the club
at an early hour, which was very un-
usual with him, and the following day
his demeanor toward his wife was
changed, and, for the better. His
manner was affected, he was never
petulant, he deferred in everything
pertaining to domestic and household
affairs, and, as she afterwards ex-
pressed it to her most intimate friend,
“A better husband than John was
never born.”

Acid Phosphate Proves Best Wheat
That acid phosphate should be the
main fertilizer used for wheat in
Pennsylvania is the conclusion reach-
ed by crop specialists at The Penn-
sylvania State College as a result of
experiments and farm tests.
Wheat growers of the State are
finding that on fertile soils or manur-
ed fields, applications of from 200 to
300 pounds * give excellent results.
When financial conditions forbid the
use of more than 200 pounds of com-
mercial fertilizer per acre, the best
results have been obtained with the
phosphate alone.
“On soils of medium to low fertil-
ity where no manure is used, we are
finding that mixed fertilizers, either
factory or home-mixed, are giving the
best yields of wheat,” says F. D.
Gardner, head of the agronomy de-
partment at State College. “From
300 to 400 pounds of 2-12-2 or 2-12-4
has been the best application judging
by results.”

Wheat Fed to Poultry Brings Profit-
able Price.
At least one hundred farmers of
Pennsylvania have found a means of
disposing of wheat at the profitable
price of $1.70 per bushel. It is by
feeding wheat to the farm flock. Fig-
ures obtained by the poultry special-
ists of The Pennsylvania State Col-
lege from more than 100 poultry men
show that wheat brought $1.70 per
bushel, corn $1.60 and oats 80 cents
when fed to poultry and marketed in
the form of eggs.
On the average these farm hens
produced 144 eggs apiece per year
which were sold for an average price
of 35 cents a dozen. Labor, taxes, in-
surance, repairs, interest and all oth-
er expenses were deducted before the
returns on the grain were figured.
The ration used on farms was one
of the three suggested by the poultry
extension specialists at State College.
The scratch wos made up of 250
pounds of cracked corn, 150 pounds of
wheat, and 100 pounds of oats. For a
mash, 100 pounds of meat scrap, 200
poynds of wheat, and 100 pounds of
corn were ground together.
