Smut In wheat Is probably tho cause
of moro dnmago next to that of tho
Hessian Ply to this stnplo crop of
mo btaxe. LlKo the damage of tho
Hessian Ply Its ravages can bo
avoided by taking advantage of
metnods well-known to science. This
Is done by destroying the spores of
smut on seed wheat according to
tno fallowing procedure as outlined
by H. A. Surface. Economic Zoolo
gist of tho State Department of Ag
riculture, In his reply to a corres
pondent: ' Replying to your letter asking
for a formula for treating seed wheat
ror Smut, I beg to say that this Is
not a difficult operation, and will be
effective If undertaken. It is not
expensive, and It requires no great
skill or knowledge to do It proper

In this regard If directions aro fol
lowed in this brief article.
" Smut, as you know, makes the
Diack heads of wheat and oats, and
Is often responsible for tho loss of a
very large percentage of the crop,
which sometimes amounts to fully
one-half of the entire crop. Since
tnis is so easily and cheaply pre
vented, thero is no excuse for a
farmer losing his wheat or oats from
" The treatment consists in soak
ing the seed with a solution of the
liquid known as formalin or for
maldehyde. It can bo purchased
from druggists by the pound in
liquid form. In commercial form it
consists of forty per cent, of for
maldehyde In an aqueous or watery
solution. It Is a strong germicide
and preservative. One pint of this
solution in thirty gallons of wa
ter Is enough to destroy the Smut
germs, and also the Scab germs of
potatoes ana other kinds of germs,
when it comes in contact with them.
" There are two -methods of
treatment: One consists in putting
the grain into sacks, and setting
this into a barrel containing the
thirty gallons of water, with the
pint of formalin In solution In it.
It should bo lifted up and down oc
casionally, to be sure that the liq
uid will penetrate and come in con
tact with all the grain. A fow min
utes soaking is long enough at a
time. The grain should then be
emptied on the barn floor on a clean
spot, and spread thin, and allowed
to dry, being shoveled over occasion
ally. " It can bo treated at any time
hefore sowing, if it is kept clean af
ter treatment, but the best plan is
to treat It just before the time for
sowing, and if it does not get dry
rapidly enough the drying can be
hastened by dusting a little slaked
lime over it. The best plan, how
ever, is to dry it by opening the
barn doors, and letting tho wind
blow through, and using a shovel to
stir it occasionally."

NO STORE TOO SMALL.
A " little " storekeeper, when ap
proached for advertising space in a
daily newspaper in a nearby town,
replied that ho did not care to ad
vertise because his store was too
small. A little Inquiry from the so
licitor found that the man had nev
er advertised, never enlarged his
store and had about the same line of
goods he had when he started 15
years ago. Ho was a college gradu
ate, had a long experience in a good,
modern store uerore lie started In
business for himself, but seemed con
tent with the business that he had.
Whether he was making more than
a living didn't seem to bother him.

When courtln' of your gal,
And life was simply heaven

How I marched up the aisle.

A MINISTER SHOULD RE SOCIAL.
The country minister has failed
again and again because he did not
know enough to work his field; he
does not go after business; or it may
bo he Is far too lazy to make the
physical and social ministry make up
for the deficiencies of the pulpit ser
vice. It Is not Improbable that a
great mnny failures are due to lazi
ness. ,uiu mis statement is iouna
ed on certain facts which have been
gathered in another denomination
and shown In the following letters
accompanied by a very just if sen
tentious comment: " Our minister is
a delightful little man and writes
elegant sermons, but ho thinks ho
'has no tlmo to call upon the people."
we looKed into the year-book and
found there were 75 families in that
parish. Laziness. Another: " Our
minister is all right as a man but
he has been here three years and
not yet called upon much more than
half the people." Tho year-book
gave 60 families. Laziness. A good
deacon writes, " Our minister is a
good man but the people do not
know him. Somehow he does not
like to. visit." That parish has 42
The reason why a good many min
isters of fair ability are out of a
job, is because they do not want to
visit; because they are lookinc for a
church that will tit their own no
tions, rather than trying to lit them
selves to tho needs of a church. It
Is true that a good many men do
not know how to' call; they do not
know how to behave when they get
into a nouse, tney do not like It and
will shirk It every chance they get.
Yet calling is the secret of success
in almost every parish to-day; not
the samo kind of calling in all
places, tout some kind in every
place, and if our seminaries had wis
dom they would lit their students to
do their work In the best way, In
the only way In which It can be done
In the country at least. Give one
year to sermon-making and three
years to making gentlemen, in the
truest sense of that word. Thus
send out men who can adapt them
selves to the needs of the place
whero they are called, and can thus
serve human souls, who, being as
they arc, want to be bettor. The

THINGS GOOD TO EAT.
A good sauce Is almost indispensa
ble to the finished taste of some
meats. Any number of these condi
ments are employed by the cook to
add flavor to the meat, and so skill
fully are they prepared that the en
tire taste of the dish depends upon
tho selection of the sauce. Breaded
veal cutlets with tomato sauce is a
favorite on many tables.
BREADED VEAL CUTLETS Cut
tender veal Into four-Inch squares,
wipe dry and season. Beat an egg
In one dish and have rolled cracker
crumbs in another. Dip the cutlets
in the egg, then in the crackers and
put Into enough hot fat to about

rot, a turnip and a whole pepper, all

prevent scorching by frequent stir

Candidate for Prothonotary
TO THE REPUBLICANS OF WAYNE COUNTY:
Pursuant to the requests of my many friends in the county and
the general understanding three years ago that I should again offer
myself as a candidate for the nomination for Prothonotary at the com
ing primaries, Sept. 30th, I would
state that after a short start by
way of an education In the public
schools of Wayne county, I com
pleted a course at the A. M. Chis
bro Seminary In Monroe county, N.
Y. My post-graduate course was
about thirty years In the school
of hard knocks as a farmer and
lumberman In Wayne county.
Have met many people In the var
ied relations of a business man
and this long experience has en
abled me to meet many whom I
esteem as friends and gain at
least enough knowledge to appre
ciate the needs and requirements
of my fellow man.
My aim has steadily been to
deal honestly, frankly and fairly
with all and to dearly cherish all
of our country's institutions, and
to encourage and assist every
true effort to maintain and ad
vance them. I invite the fullest
investigation of my record and
with pleasure refer you to the ex
pression given at the polls by my WALLACE J. RARNES.

Wayno county, I never asked' for ofllco except on the aforementioned
occasion when I was defeated by M- J. Hanlan who, though opposed to
me, never, to my knowledge, said or did anything detrimental to me.
I therefore earnestly request your support and promise if nominated
and elected to faithfully perform the duties of the ofllce to the very
best of my ability and in all things observe the spirit of the Golden
