They were talking of their absent sons, and the fact that each of the fathers had a boy In a different college did not prevent them from amicably discussing their prospects. "It won't be long," said one of the fathers, "before the athletic season opens, and then I think we'll hear something from the Orange and Illue." "Yes," said another, "ami there'll be some shouting done by the IWue and Gray." "Of course," said the third father, "and as my boy has gone to Princeton, I'll have to put in a word for the Black and Orange; but it doesn't make such a great deal of difference. The boys are bound to come under the same colors in the end." "No," said one. "Can't be arranged." said the other. "Oh. yes. it can !" "To which colors do you refer?" "Black and Blue."

Visitors in .Washington wishing to consult thef department's poultry specialists aro'invited to call at their office and also to visit their experimental farm. The work in poultry feeding and breeding is conducted by the animal husbandry division and that relating to diseases by the pathological division of the bureau of animal industry. Many bulletins are available dealing with various phases of poultry raising, any of which may bo had free upon application to the division of publications, United States t Apartment of Agriculture. In addition to the regular bulletins there are a number prepared especially for boys' and girls clubs and for persons beginning the poultry business without much knowledge of Its requirements. A list of these may be had upon application to the same division. At the department's experiment farm at Leltsville. Md.. various ra ous to studv ' tions are being fed to he their effect.

Only simple rations of widely j available feeds are used Ileus in considerabie numlers ai being trap-nested, and matings made to determine the possibilities of different methods of breeding in increasing or fixing egg production. Matings to fix certain types or characters desired in the flocks also are made. No birds are retained in the flock which have a disqualification that would bar them under the rules of the American Standard of Perfection. The results being obtained indicate that it is possible to combine utility and standard breeding to a practical degree. Any of this information is available for the persons requesting it, and the department is eager to have It used widely. Doys' and girls' poultry clubs have a wide Influence in interesting the children in raising chickens, arfd in teaching them and their parents the best methods of handling poultry for the production of eggs and meat. The department is giving special attention to improving the quality of market eggs with a view to overcoming losses estimated at many millions of dollars annually. These studies cover the production of eggs on the farm, and their handling from the farm to the country store. The production of Infertile eggs, which are far superior in ''keeping qualities to fertile eggs, is being advocated.

X: ; i i i ; j ; ; ' : TREES PLANTED IN STREETS In Congested Centers They Have Been Sacrificed to Alleged Intsrests of Cusiness. (Prepared by the I'nitml Siatrs Department ttf Agriculture. ) One of the characters in an early-day American romance of. the time when the "stamp act" was causing all kinds of trouble is recorded as declaring that New York never would be a real business city because Rrradway ami Maiden Lane were lined with trees. The Van Yrooms. ' the Stuyve-sants. the Artavelts. and other early settlers of the country saved tine trees about their homes, on the village greens, along the country roads, and in the fields. Bui one will see no trees . nowadays on Broadway, and Maiden Lane has been transformed from the pleasant, tree-bordered region of iMUch homes with flower gar-dons into the busiest wholesale jewelry district In America, if not in the world. Beauty and comfort gave way to the Inroad of commerce, not only in New-York but in most of America's great cities, so that today trees in a business street are a rare sight. There" are elm-shaded villages in New England; maple-shaded towns in New York and the Ohio valley, and then? are oak-tree streets to be seen in the southeastern states, but for the most part this refers only to small towns or cities never to the congested centers of population where they should have been preserved. Washington the. national capital, is one of the ex eeptions, and even there the plantings were not always wisely arranged. The tree growth in the streets of the average American town or city is ragged and unkempt in appearance while that of the suburb or small vil lage often is not much better, unless the planting has been done under mu nicipal control, and the plantings on a street have been confined to a sin gle kind of tree. The telegraph, the telephone, the electric light, and the trolley car have added -their share toward the mutilation or destruction of the good trees that were in existence at the time of their coming. Faulty methods of pruning have caused disfigurement and ruin. "Success follows the careful planting of good trees which are given adequate Narrow Upright Trees (Lombardy Poplars) on a Narrow Street in Washington, D. C. protection and timely attention," says Farmers Bulletin 1209. Planting and Care of Street Trees, just issued by the United States Department of Agriculture. "Every tree should be trained to its proper form while young, so that severe pruning will not be necessary later. Guards are necessary, too, for several j-ears. "To the mutilation of severe pruning has been added the destruction of many trees In centers of business because they excluded a little light, or made the store less prominent, or were somewhat in the way of using the sidewalk for merchandise." The bulletin insists that providing shade on city streets Is as much a municipal function as providing lights or sidewalks and should, therefore, be cared for by public officials. Probably the most efficient way of arrang-ig for proper supervision. It says, is, through an unpaid commission of three or five members which, in turn employs an executive officer. Methods of organization are described, and numerous illustrations show how trees should be planted. There are chapters also describing pruning, spraying, transplanting, and other subjects of Importance to every town or city whether It has trees or wishes to have them.

WILLARO MUSEUM Little Schoolhouse Near Janesville, Wis., Dedicated to Memory of Great Temperance Leader. Log cabins and marble palaces, courthouses and round towers are now and airain turned into museums in the memory of some historic person. More rarely the building is a schoolhouse, but such is the case with the new Frances E. Willard museum. The little country schoolhouse near Janesville, Wis., has recently been dedicated by followers of the American temperance leader, among them former pupils of Miss Willard's In Wesleyan seminary and at Northwestern university, and national officers of the Woman's Christian Temperance union. The schoolhouse is far from imposing. Miss Willard referred to it once, as "a sort of big ground-nut," but it symbolizes the progress of a child who came Into a wilderness with her pioneer family, and through her good work gained a place for herself In the Hall of Fame at Washington, the only woman so honored. The avarice of the miser may be termed the grand sepulchre of all his other passions.

The utilization of the range in the national forests of the West for the production of wool, heef, mutton and pork is steadily increasing from year to year. Ranchers and stockmen are manifesting a growing appreciation of the advantages afforded by government pasturage. And in the same degree they are all too frequently neglecting their stock after it is turned out on the mountain ranges, state ofti- cials of the United States Department of Agriculture. On all open ranges there are many losses from predatory animals, poison ous Plants, disease and accidents, and similar dangers. Lnless owners or. me stock campaign intelligently and perse- verlngly against such sources or disaster, their herds and flocks usually suf- fer a mortality of from 5 to o per cent yearly. NTo illustrate, one ranchman grazed 700 head of cattle last suni-i mer on a national forest without a herder. As a result he lost a dozen head of steers worth $50 each. Mortality High Last Year. Last year in forest district 5, which includes California and western Nevada, the total live stock mortality in 17 forests amounted to 1,151 cattle, 5 horses and 5.S40 sheep. The total number of permittees who used the federal grazing lands aggregated 3,329. They grazed 234,415 cattle and horses. G33,-500 sheep and goats and 5,500 hogs on the forest ranges. Two hundred and seventy-five cattle died of disease; 2130 cattle and 1,462 sheep were killed by eating poisonous plants ; 91 cattle, 5 horses and 2,745 sheep were killed by predatory animals, and 4S0 cattle and 1,633 sheep succumbed to accidents and miscellaneous causes of death. This matter of live stock losses on the government ranges has become of such importance that the United States forest service made a detailed survey of the specific causes of mortality among live stock iu the Stanislaus for-I est of California during a recent year.

Terracing the sides of farm-land hills to prevent washing of the soil Is a profitable occupation at any time of the year, but particularly so during the fall when the farmer Is not very busy. The cost of the work often "Will not exceed the water damage of a single spring "Hjason. Soil erosion is held responsible for much of the worn-out hill lands of the Cnited States, where if the, water were checked by properly built terrace ridges It would cease to tear away the soil and Instead permit the land to grow In fertility. Terracing is widely practiced in the South, and the United States Department of Agriculture regards it as advisable on the hill farms of the North and East, The various kinds of terraces and ways to plan and build them are' described In Farmers Bulletin 907, which may be had on application to he department. Western Forest Range. proper food and starvation, 14, and from unknown causes. 337. Check Predatory Animals. The losses from predatory animals are heing checked as rapidly as the federal agencies for this work are able to cope with the situation. Whenever the forest rangers note that the predatory animals are causing heavy damage, professional hunters are sent to destroy them. The losses due to disease and accident and miscellaneous causes could be substantially der creased If more herders were employed by the owners. Under conditions which obtain on the national forest ranges one or two herders could handle from five hundred to a thousand cattle without particular difficulty. On the same scale that it pays to herd sheep on the government ranges It also is profitable to herd cattle and, potentially, permittees probably will come to this decision of their own accord. Poisonous plants and particularly larkspur are responsible annually for large losses of live stock throughout the western states. There Is only one effective system of ridding the ranges of larkspur and that is to grub the plants out season after season until finally the range will be free of this objectionable growth. The experiences of a certain rancher whose range abuts one of the California national forests, and who, under the supervision of the United States forest service, has been waging a winning fight against larkspur during the last four years, are illuminative In this regard. After careful trial and study of the control methods and the results, this stockman is enthusiastic about the efficiency of the plan and 'he urges ev ery other rancher or stockman who owns infested range to give the system of eradication a thorough and Impar tial trial. One Hundred Acres Grubbed. The first season about one hundred acres of range were grubbed, the poisonous plants being eradicated with larkspur picks and scattered in exposed places to dry in the sun. One man could dig 1.71 acres a day. The total cost of grubbing the one hundred acres the first year amounted to $450.30, an average of $4.50 an acre. The losses of cattle were reduced from IS head the year before to 5 head the following season. The saving of 13 head of cattle was directly due to the larkspur eradication work. Estimating these steers worth $50 apiece, a saving of $650 resulted, which paid all the expense of the grubbing and left a balance of $199.70 to the credit of the work. The following season the range carried 50 more head of cattle as a result of the decrease in the amount and severity of the larkspur Infection. In passing, it is worthy of mention that the larkspur picks are made from ordinary surfacepicks by drawing out one point to a chisel form about two inches wide, while the other point is sharpened in a diamond shape. BUYING SUITABLE CHICKENS Possible for City Man to Select His Pullets From Live Poultry Shipped to Town. Vhere a town man has no time to go Into the country "to buy his pullets it often is possible to choose suitable birds among the live poultry shipped into the city markets. The advice of some experienced person should be obtained before buying, says the United States Department of Agriculture. Local poultry associations are glad to help prospective poultry keepers - by putting them into touch with members having stock for sale. The board of trade or the chamber of commerce often can bring poultry raiser and buyer together. Avoid Cheap Cases.
