There are cranberry bogs hi Wis

GRAFTING MADE EASY.
Ituwn East Method Which Ila
Never Failed to Produce Fairly
In grafting a seedling one r r.v
years old the gralt is put on ju.-,
above the ground and but one cutting
is used. To craft a tree to chancre
the fruit is another matter and in
stead of cutting the tree off below
the limbs tfcree or four of the Jower
and two cuttings or grafts are placed
in each limb. Should the operation
prove successful the following year
all the branches above the graft:
may be removed with little danger
of losing the tree. A tree of most
any age may be grafted in this way
and in a few years be in good bear
ing. The grafting outfit is simple,
comprising a lackknife. small saw
and ,a dish of grafting wax. In se
lecting grafts only the last year'
growth of new wood should' be

V , mous educator say:
' ' "Take up teaching
as a life work er let It alone. He added
that the field of education was dread y
overcrowded with women who look
upon their occupation not as a serious
profession, but as a remunerative
means of filling in their time between
graduation and marriage." The edu
cator's theories doubtless were sound
enough, but is his advice practicable?
How can a girl who chooses the profes
sion of teaching be sure that it can bs
her life work. Must she deliberately
renounce all hope of being married?
Must she resolve to turn a deaf ear to
every suitor? Is an intellectual wom
an to be barred from the profession
by the possibility that she will marry,
and , on the other hand, is a successful
teacher to refuse to marry because she
feels that her first duty is her chosen
vocation? These are questions, ac
cording to the Milwaukee Sentinel,
that the educator would find difllcult
to answer. An effort to increase the
proportion of men teachers has been
made recently in various parts -of the
lountry, but it is likely that women will
always predominate in public school
work. The gentle sympathy and in
exhaustible patience of women fit them
for teachers in the lower grades where
it Is impossible for men to compete
with them. In the higher studies they
are also most successful, for they
bring to their teaching a singleness of
purpose and nn enthusiasm rarely
found among men.. There will always
be many women teachers who do not
marry, but the majority will seek
homes of their own. The well-trained
teacher should become a wise mother,
She should be able to supplement the
work of those who instruct her cliil
dren at school. The famous educator's
advice is good Indeed when construed
in-its largest meaning. Teaching is a
life work with every woman if she ac
cepts her noblest duties and fulfills her

David Bankln, of Tsrkio. Mo, owns
Ua tartest cultivated tract of land ia
iha world, says the Cincinnati Ka
qnlrer. To those who have never vis
!'d a large ranch the methods secea
mrf to Berry' on the tast amooat of
!vrk wq14 era great problem.
Mr. Rankin owns 14 ranches, contain
ing 2,000 acres; 700 teams and 230
men are required to operate the daily
"" wor m tne ousy season while
Mm crops are under cultivation." Each
anca has an overseer, who Is required
to make a monthly report and to sub
mit the same to his employer. ' The
recoras of the past year's work over
all the ranches show that a total of
7,539 head of cattle had been sold for
S172.520 and 8,249 head of hogs for
$111,848. The total clearance for the
year 1900 amounted to $100,000.- The
expenses, including interest, reached
the sera of $91,851.13.
The most profitable ranch is the one
looked afte r by Foneman George Ross,
whose yearly report contains the fol
lowing statements: Number of acres,
3,280; cattle, 1,328; net proceeds from
cattle, $14,598.00; hogs, 1,232, cash for
tne same, 117,054.19; expense per acre,
$1.39; corn bought, 98,720 bushels.
Mr. Rankin Is a close observer and
soon picks out the good qualities of
his men. He is pleasant and accom
modating, daring and energetic, which
qualities have won for him the wealth
ne now commands. Besides l.U fsrms
he has nn interest In several banking
concerns, but to these latter he gives
little attention, and spends most of his
time riding over the ranches to see
that proper care is being given the
stock. Sometimes he lends a helping
hand In pulling a steer from the mud;
again he will assist in building a shed
lor the fattened hogs.

In Oregon, says the Hay Journal, will
be reclaimed and made to produce
hay, if a project set on foot by a live
stock company shall prove'succcssful.
This company has built a dredge,
with which it proposes to dig a ditch
CO feet wide and nine feet deep
through the center of the swamp
which covers a large proportion of
Molhcur county. By menns of this
ditch it is proposed to drain the
swamp and convert it into a irrent
hay field. It is estimated that 100,000
tons of hoy can be produced annual
ly, where now nothing but swamp
grass flourishes. A San Francisco
company has secured a contract to
operate tho' dredge, and it is esti
mated that two years will be re
quired to complete the ditch.
Collar, of Strawberries.
There are three methods now fol
lowed by tho best growers, known na
hill culture, the hedge row and the
half-matted row. 5y the first, plants
are set from 13 to 13 inches apart in
tbe row, and all runners kept off so
that no other plants can form. The
heilfre row method consists in having
plants from 0 to 13 inches in the
row, with runners kept off; and the
huK-matted row method is to plant
in t'le usual manner with plants 13
to 3U inches in the row, the first run
ners that appenr just where wanted,
until there is a row about 13 inches
wide, with plants not more than six
Inches apart. After the row is filled
in this manner, keep the runners ofT,
