fruit and the bark was badly shriveled,
In some places It was split open. It

On a rainy day, when the trees were
wet, I put n strong pocket (French I

No Man is Stronger
Than His Stomach
A strong man it strong all over. No man can be
strong who is suffering from weak stomach with its
consequent indigestion, or from some other disease
of the ttomsoh and its associated organs, which im
pairs digestion and nutrition. For when the stomach
is weak or diseased there is loss of the nutrition
contained in food, which ia the source of all physical
strength. When man "doesn't leel iuit right,"
when he doesn't sleep well, has an uncomfortable
feeling in the stomach after eating, ia languid, nervous, irritable and dejpood-
at, be is losing the nutrition needed to make strength.

If your (lock of poultry shows per
sistent lack of thrirt nnd robust
health, tho best thing to do Is to
change stock. You will not accom
plish much otherwise. When a fel
low gets on the wrong track, the best
thing Is usually to back out and start
entirely new.
No wonder the poultry business Is
growing each year. There are more
then 5000 poultry shows b-lng held
nnnunlly In the United Slates nnd
Canada, each one or which Is a val
uable bureau for tho dissemination of
poultry lore nnd the chicken fever.
Cabbage Is one of the most populnr
winter green foods for fowls. It Is
easily grown, easily kept, nnd easily
fed, and the fowls seem never to tiro
of It. A good way to feed It Is to sus
pend n bend In the nlr by sticking It
on a nail In the wall, making the
fowls .lump a few Inches In order to
rench It.
Fumigate the hen house often
enough to destroy all germs nnd ver
min. It nlso pays to use n good dis
infectant frequently nnd freely
around the houses and ynrds. Disin
fecting nnd fumigation are two Im
portant matters and should receive
more attention than they do.
The Importance of exercise for poul
try might well bo placed subordinate
only to good housing nnd feeding.
But a writer In nn agricultural month
ly pertinently remarks that "scratch
ing to get a minute's pence from
mites and other pests Is not the right
kind of exercise." The truth Is ob
vious. Give the fowls plenty of encour
agement to scratch for their grain
feed by keeping a portion of each
pen deeply bedded with leaves or
straw. There Is nothing like It for
promoting thrift and contentment
among n Hock of fowls In the winter,
nnd it Is also a grent aid towards
getting fertile, batchable eggs
allzes no profit on his capital If the
expense of operating his dairy Is not
less than the gross receipts of the
dulry products.
The profits In the dairy Industry
nre mensured by tho average produc
tion ot the cows. One animal will
produce .1000 pounds of milk In a Ben
son, and another cow 8000 pounds,
which, sold nt ii per 100 pounds,
would represent a difference of $50
In the minimi Income between the
two cows. If tho smaller producer
only paid for her feed mid attendance
the larger milker would net tho own
er a profit of $50. A herd of twenty
mediocre cows may only produce op
erating expenses, while a dairy of
twenty good rows would yield n net
prollt of $1000, It. Is to the ndvsn
tuge of tho dairyman In every partic
ular to weed out. bis poor rows and
reolaco them with profitable producers.

"Do you know how peanuts grow?"
asked Mr. Joseph D. Warren, of Rich
mond, Vn., In n recent Interview, "t
have found few persons of the North
nml West who can answer that ques
tion. Porno sny on a vine, porno on a
bush, some on n tree, and some In
the ground, like potatoes.
"The peculiar thing nbout a peanut
Is that It grows In two ways on a
bush nnd like n potato. The first
step lu the process Is tho plnntlng of
n single peanut. From that n bush
grows. I.vIik close to tho ground. A
branch stretches out closo to tho
rnrth, and sends up Into the nlr
shoots on which nro little yellow
flowers, like buttercups. Directly
beneath these flowers, growing
straight downwnrd, small, sharp
pointed shoots appear, like thorns.
They nrn called "pegs," and grow
back Into tho ground. It Is nt. tho
end of these 'pegs' that the pennuts
are found."
Forest reports declare thnt within
n few yenrs there will not. be n single
chestnut, tree within twenty miles ol
New York City. A fungous disease
Is killing them, and Is reported ns
snreiidlng In nil directions. Tho
elimination of tho chestnut would bo
n serious loss to timber resources,
for chestnut wood Is valuable. Tho
esthetic loss of this noble tree would
nlfin be lamentable. With It would
go the joys of chostnuttlng, one of
he most, delightful pursuits asso
ciated with tho first, frosts of nu

always hold delightful place In nil

Keep Better Cows.
As cities Increase in population
there Is an annual expansion In the
demand for dairy products. The mere
fact thnt in 1908 there was an in
crease of 526,000 milch cows report
ed In the United States Indicates a
wonderful broadening of the dairy
Industry. Railway transportation fa
cilities are Improved, traffic rates are
more reasonable and the city supply
ot milk and dairy products is ex
tending farther Into the ' country,
says Drovers' Journal.
Where help can be obtained to op
erate the dairy milk production is
one of the best paying branches Ot
animal husbandry. The farmers op
erating their holdings with milch
cows are enabled to market all the
roughage and grain produced on the
farm In milk, butter, cream or cheese.
The dairy Industry is especially
adapted to build up and Increase the
fertility of the farm. It Is popular
among farmers, because the farmer
realizes a monthly Income on his In
vestment. As a rule dairymen are
thrifty and prosperous agriculturists.
The profits of dairy husbandry all
depend on the productive ability of
the cows. Unquestionably many
cows are in dairy herds that do not
more than pay the expense ot keep,
leaving no profit to the dairyman. It
the farmer had $10,000 to loan he
would prefer to invest it in six per
cent first mortgages Instead of loan
ing the money without interest. The
farmer sells his hay, grain and rough
age through the products ot his
cows, and it the revenue only equals
the cost ot production there Is no
profit in the Industry. He Is losing
the Interest on his investment and re-
The Cnlllvnllon of Corn
From my observations I am con
vinced thnt this latter-day machinery
for "shallow cultivation" is not, In
the mnjorlty of Instances, on tho cor
rect prlnrlole; nt any rate In this lat
itude. With the present improved
soil conditions we hnve, by nnder
drnlnlng, clover, etc., the low average
of twenty-five bushels per acre as
reported for nil the Slntes Is most
deplorable. Kven the forty bushels
credited to Indiana this year, which
Is above the actual fncts, Is not more
than half what It should be.
We should plant deeper, nnd after
the first nnd second plowing, with
smnll shovels, go straight down nlong
side the plants. After this the object
should be to keep out, leaving the
roots undisturbed. There are only
two methods by which this can be
done properly. One is by tho use of
larger shovels In order to throw the
dirt over to the corn; the other ex
treme shallow cultivation, with drag
or harrow, circumstances to govern
the matter according to conditions of
soil, season and time of doing it.
However, under most conditions I
find the larger shovel the better, as it
throws the soil up over the roots to
nourish and fully mature a crop of
ears. In "ye olden time" the corn
ground was furrowed out with a large
shovel plow, or maybe a little mold
board, corn dropped down In the bot
tom of the furrow, covered with the
hoe, drag or "straddle bug," and cul
tivated with larger shovels on the
plow or cultivator. And it took a
hard wind to throw down the corn In
those days, and needless to say ears
hung over the rows, long and hard
as stove wood. The writer can re
call as a hoy, taking one year as an
Instance, in 3000 bushels he raised
there wasn't a bushel basketful of
nubbins to feed a cow. Indeed I had
to break the ears over the doorslll of
the old log crib to get It small enough
to feed.
Let us get down to common sense
in the matter by procuring a planter
(or adjusting the latter devices for
attaching to the ordinary ones in
use) that has the fenders, or pairs of
discs set before the runners of the
planter, making a furrow ot sufficient
depth for the seed, but not necessa
rily covering deeper than It should
be, or would be without them. There
Is reason, yes, true science in the at
tachments where snch planters are
to be UBed, as the discs cut looser and
throw up and out the soil In the dif
ferent grades, mingling together as It
falls over the corn as the runners
pass through. - This method, properly
applied, would work a revolution In
corn growing. I. M. Miller, In the
Indiana Farmer.

Haeckel and Huxley.
Of Ernst Haeckel, Professor Vernon
Lymart Kellogg declares, In The Pop

tnerely the German champion of Dar
winism and Monism, but the world
champion." When compared with
Huxley, his famous companion-inarms,
Haekel appears as the more
egostlstlc of the two. He fights more
for himself He advertises himBelf
more. And he comes in for sharper
scientific criticism than Huxley did.
He has been accused of a certain
"carelessness" in his handling of bio
loglcal facts, of a tendency to specu
latlveness which Ills critics have
dubbed "der Haeckellsmus in der zool
ogle." But of his influence at large
there can be no question. New York
