A good ice bouse.ls almost indispen sable on the farm. Yon fltul nn occa sional farm supplied Tvltli a great abundance of pure cold water from deep wells or large flowing springs With these there Is little use for ice. but such supply Is not found on the great majority of country homes, nud lco is badly needed. When Ice may be had from some creek or poud near by there Is little excuse for not having a small house well filled every year for summer hse, says an American Agri culturist writer, who gives the follow ing instructions for building such a house: A convenient size far the farm ice house ts twelve feet square ou the outside. Let the frame be made of timbers 2 by fl inches and set up so the siding outside as well as the inside lining boards will run up and down the wall, thus facilitating drainage. The eaves should be ten feet high. In one end four or five feet from the ground there should be a door through which the Ice can lw> put lit ami taken out. I find by experience that it is best not to extend thl3 door down to the ground, as more or less air will get in FAIiM ICE HOUSE. and melt the ice, no matter how tight we try to make It. Provide good ven tilation by a couple of lattice windows in effner gable. This Is very necessary If lee Is to ketjp well. It Is not necessary to pack the space be tween the two walls with sawdust or ■traw, as the dead air Is just as good and the structure will not rot down so quickly. Fill In the bottom of the house with dirt so it will be a few Inches higher than the level of the ground inside. Then lay. old timbers, rails or poles across the bottom anil fill In the spaces between with sawdust or cut straw to a depth of six or eight Inches. Then jour house Is ready to fill. The poles or rails keep the Ice from coming In contact with the earth and give good 1 drainage without allowing any air to get In. , In packing away Ice try to get the blocks out as nearly square as possi ble, and be particular to pound up ice and till up snugly all crevices and Joints that do not lit up together. Blocks of ice can always be cut so they will All out the space between the walls exactly, so there will be no pieces to fit in. It is a good plan to stop the Ice about six inches short of Ifeg inside wall and fill in this space as the hcruse Is being filled with saw duet, chaff or straw. The ice should be covered before the weather gets warm enough to start It to melting. Every few days It should be examined and all open spaces filled up so as to keep out all air drafts. I hare seen a most excellent ice house made of baled straw, laid up like brick so the Joints were well broken. Tli is house had been lu use five years when I saw it and promised to be serviceable for several more years. The American lloyal Show. The American Royal show Is pro nounced great this year in quality and numl>er of cattle of all the beef breeds by a Country Gentleman writer, who says: "Herefords continue to be pre eminent. The classes of Shorthorns, though not so full, contain-some grand specimens both of fut and breeding stock. Whites and roans were jtroml neut In the Canadian exhibit, while the classic reds were in good evidence. An Immense red Shorthorn cow at tracted more attention than anything else. The Angus display Is said to be the finest ever made in the United States. The Calloway display of aged bulls perhaps has been unequaled in displays of this breed. The display of Imported draft horses nearly equals the St. Louis fair collecUon, at least in quality. Percherons, Belgians, German coachers, Clydesdales and Shires arc all well represented." Pedigreed Strawberries. Mr. M. Crawford, an Ohio strawber ry grower, In discussing "pe<Hgreed" strawberries at the meeting of the American Pomologleal society said that he had tried the so called pedi greed strawberries beside oth«r varie ties not pedigreed In tho same row, and the results of those experiments are that he has had no better results and In a good many cases not as good re sults from tho so called pedigreed strawberries as he has had from "scrubs." liabblt Meat In EngUud. Australia Is sending so many rabbits to England that the market in fairly glutted. The enormous supply Is hav »ug a bad effect on Uie beef market, hough of course rabbit meat dose not into the name consumptive channel as beef. Nevertheless It fills a hole tand makes the demand for the cheaper cuts of beef lighter.—Exchange. fever the Onion lleda.

In res]x>nse to an inquiry about white grubs, which have been trouble some In eoine of the eastern potato fields this (season as well as In corn, Itural New Yorker advises: Farmers have reported to us that buckwheat Is offensive to these grubs, but we have not found It so. They will not lie so likely to trouble you next year. Professor M. V. Sllngerlaad scuds this discouraging report about methods for destroying white grubs: "The 'yellow butterfly' mentioned by Uie correspondent bus no connection with white grulis. The adult form of the white grub is a large brown beetle, known as June bug or May beetle. As these Insects have a three year life cycle, it often happens that every third year they are more destructive. There Is no system of fertilizing or applying anything to the soil ill practicable , quantities that will destroy these grubs. Over small areas hand diggiug Is the only effective method, and this is practicable In strawberry beds. Thor ough cultivation Is the greatest dls L'ourager of underground living insects. Therefore a short system of crop rota tlou will help very materially In con trolling this pest, especially If the rota tion consists largely of crops that need thorough anil frequent cultivation. Very thorough stirring of the soil In early fall will kill uiauy of them which are transforming Into beetles." No practical system of fertilizing , will destroy them, s:) you should cop- i slder the needs of the potato crop In J using chemicals. Unless you are fa- . miliar with the use of chemicals we I would begin by aslng gouje wc|L, fcuown i>rjpsl potato Ecrjijl^i^ uisra BtrlfcS tlia fl.elA"On wlilch you can use potash alone, acid phos-' pliate alone and on another the two to gether. This will show you If the soil needs one of these elements In particu lar. Then you can get a better Idea about using tho chemicals. We would I use GOO pounds of potato fertilizer per ! acre and 400 pounds for grain. You [ should plow the clover sod In spring unless you can save time DT plowing part ©f It In the fall. In ffcil plowing leave the furrows standing up and In spring work them down with a spring tooth. IMPROVED FORESTRY. lion (he Foreit Service Co-operate* With Timber Owner«. During the past fiscal year the ad vice and supervision of the forest serv ice were asked for the management of private forest lands aggregating over 2,000,000 acres. A circular of this branch of the department of agricul ture has recently been Issued to give an Idea of the co-operative arrange • ment with the government by which . owners may secure the assistance of ' trained foresters in the care of their i woodlands. "The plan of co-operation ■ provides that where owners will pay i all expenses for the study of the tract tho forest service will supply the i knowledge. ■ Studying the situation. In brief, it appears from the source of information referred to that a pre liminary Inspection of the tract Is | made by a special agent of the forest service, then a corps of men is detailed to secure data on which to base a | working plan. The data Include a care ful estimate, based on actufll measure ments, of the stand both of merchant able and immature trees. Their rate of growth is determined, reproduction Is studied and the danger from fire, from grazing or from Insect attack and the best methods of preventing tbem. Mar ket and transportation facilities are carefully Investigated. A map show lug the character, distribution and quality of the forest is prepared. Carrrlnß Oat the Owner's Vl«n». When the needed data have been collected they are worked up Into the plan. Usually the owner has some par- Ucular desire with reference to the use of his woodlands. Whatever this may be. It Is borne In mind in the prepara tion of the working plan. To secure the prime object a forester of the serv ice visits tho owner wherever neces sary, confers with him over the details of the flan and at his request and ex pense assists in the actual work of put ting the recommendation in force. In view of changed conditions which time may bring the forest service at its own expense sends one of Its experts about once every two years to Inspect tha progress of forest management on the tract for which the working plan was made. HERE AND THERE Professor 11. E. Van Norman has been appointed as instructor in dairy ing at the Pennsylvania State college. It Is now suggested that a bond or guarantee of good behavior would be a better check on Incompetent, careless or brutal automoblllsts than the small fine, for which the man with an expen sive machine may cars Tittle. Over 400,000 acres of Comanche and Kiowa lands are to be leased by the government In quarter sectiou tracts for five years from Jan. 1, 1906, the lessees being privileged to renew their leases at their expiration.

Parpose and I'hni-ni'tei'titlci of This Oi'iiiiti of the liiVHl vc. Persons who have seen soft shell clams as they lay In a pan lit the kitch en preparatory to. being cooked scarce ly recognize them in their natural state. Many of us who have seen clams know that they have "necks," but are Ig norant of the purpose and character istics of this attachment. As they lie on the ground they are far from being dose mouthed. In fact, they are sel dom to be seen with the shell closed. From one end projects the "neck," which may be three times as long as the shell when fully extended. This fact, in case the "neck" Is stretched out, makes one wonder how such a length can be contracted Into such a small space aud how much remains In the shell after the "neck" has been elongated. This Is the astonishiug char acteristic of tho soft shelled clam and the one that makes him unrecoguizable to so many people. One of the clams, for Instance, is three Inches long. Ills "neck" when extended is possibly eight or nine Inches long and as large around as a man's middle finger. As every one knows, the clam when in Its native haunts is to be found sev eral Inches below the surface of the Band. He has to be dug up when dis covered by the little spurts of water which the clam beneath throws up when disturbed. This "ueck" connects the clam with his food supply in tb„- water above. In the "neck" are parallel tubes. Through one tube the clam sucks In a quantity of water. From Uie water he übsorbs whatever nourishment It may contain nnd then expels the water through the other tube. One may wonder how tho clam gets Into the sand or mud. At the end op posite the "neck" may bo seen an ap pendage resembling a turtle's tall in shape nnd called a foot. It Is with this foot that he digs his way downward.— Detroit Free Press. ORIGINAL GRETNA GREEN. Many Came Across Eukllmli Border to Have Mie Knot Tied. A recent writer on the departed glo ries of the original Gretna Green In Scotland has this to say of the "priests" who did the marrying for the hurrying, anxious persons who came to them from across the English border: "The men who took up the trade of marry ing had often been previously engaged in some other occupation. Some were stonemasons, some were weavers and many were border idlers and poachers. Among these last it Is possible that a blacksmith may at some time have ' ftikcn to Joining hands Instead of Iron, 1 but no one of the calling ever rose to fame In the marriage line." Joseph Paisley, who first made the marriage trade "hum," Is described as nothing better than a drunken free booter. But he was equal to this in cident: "On one occasion his services were required simultaneously by two couples, both In a desperate hurry, and after the ceremony It was discovered thnt, by a trilling mistake, the wrong brides and bridegrooms had been unit ed. 'Awell,' said Paisley contentedly, •Jest sort yersels.'" Eventually the "Gretna priests" be came so uumerous, competition so keen, that they waited on the English 1 border for the arrival of "customers." I None of them obtained a reputation for I riches, nor were they able to retire on ' their earnings, but died iu harness, i- The usual price for celebrating a mar riage was half a crown (.'(B'j cents), but one poor couple got off for sixpence, und u still poorer couple for 2V& pence. 4 •«GbijiuK> &«w«. ilf ili tIMI; 3H14 Oi il ■ ili ;l! :l:: - ilHIr a-et-iliil-it ■ ili ili til il! giffi I EYTH BROS.
