In shipping young poultry at this time see that they are well watered and fed before cooping and do not crowd too many into the coops. Guard against constipation in swine. The tat forming fooas tend to produce cos- tiventss. The opposite kinds of food tend to prevent it. Farmers do not use the harrow enough. Keep it in the corn-field from the time_tht corn is planted ti'l you can use the cultivator to advantage. Sheep will thrive on almost any grass tint Arrows on dry rolling land, but they greatly prefer short, sweet herbage, like blue grass and th--y i!o best on it. A rich soil i* oiit suitable for the growth of ilie lanier kinds of fruit, as promotes too rapfd a growth of wood, anc makes the same thereby tender and more brittle. The sleeping quarters of the hogs should he arranged to allow plenty of room. I: they crowd during the warm nights the; will lose flesh from want of rest, as those in the center become too warm and rest less. Large hogs should be separated from smaller ones, and good, dry bedding pro vided to all. Crowding is detrimental in summer as well as in winter. Vines Need Protection. Cucumber and melon vines need some thing for their tendrils to cling to, so a not to be blown about by the wind. Smal pieces of brush stuck into the ground be tween the hills will allow ihe hoe to b used and keep the land frfte from weeds and will insure the vines against be^ torn and injured hy winds. This is a grea deal better than the practice of allowin weeds to STOW ior ihis purpose, as som eld-fashioned farmers used to do. Matched Horses. Farmers do not seem to realize what a advantageous fi M they have before then in the direction of rearing korses that wi match, or if not situated for this thorugh not having brood mares that look exactl alike and bred alike than by exchangin what the tailors call a "misfit" for a animal or animals from other farms, an getting together a double thain which all buyers will be likely to want on sight. only competes because it goes tinder the same name as that of good quality. It is tnnch gained to have the frftdnlent compounds, olemargarine fcncl the like, branded for what they are; bat the work will not be complete until the. poorer quantities of butter are ruled ont of the market as nnfit for human use. Rancid butter is not ven fit for cooking, as however it may be isguised, it flavors whatever it is cooked nto, and thus lessens the demand which sing good bnlter for cooking- would in- rease. In many places good butter is so enefally used for making butter crackers lat they are discarded fo»|inilkcrackoi s by II having any regard for their stomachs, his is only one of tho many way> in which the uso of poor bnttor lessens the ' emand. The Skilled Frnit Grower. For fifty years to come horticultural in- erests will probably increape, and among orticulturists the skilled fruit-grower, wning from ten to fifty acres of land, will best represent his class. Such n man ! likely to be more of a business iiiim ban the average farmer, and i« in closer elations to town and city lite. He is ompelled to travel more, watches the markets and fields of invention closer, and epresent?, all in all, a finer type. A Cal- fomia fruit grower is in some respects ikin to the middle class of suburban wellers near Boston and New York, with his very important difference, tlmt ho dually nnd continually makes his living roni the soil ho owns. The one tendency f his life is toward what may In termed 'extreme Crtliforniimisin," for he is grow- ng almonds or oranges or Rouiothiua' or )ther that ct\u not ba produced at a profit n many other places on tho continent, ind the "glorious climate" is his best riend. Hut, on tho other hand ho is in a lulled business, full of technical details, 'equiring plenty of brain work, and he is elling in tbu world's markets. Many a California grower of raisins, oranges, valnutH. olives, prunes or other liorticul- ,ural products goes to Chicago and Now York every autumn, "to keep the run of the field."

Self-conciet is harder to cure than a cancer. There is nothing meaner anywhere than a lie. It takes firfi to bring out the fragrance of the incense. The surest way to get a good name is to get a good heart More mnn would be rich if they wero not afraid to trust their wives with the care of their money. The b?st way to git rid of the, blues, is to try to push the clouds away from the windows of other people. To live is not merelj to breathe, it is to act, it is to make use of our organs, senses, faculties—of all those parts of ourselves which give us a feeling of existence. —Rousseau. The Psalmist was sure that he could run in the way of God's commandments when God would ''enlarge his heart." An enlarged heart, filled and oversowing with love,'.will know no/weariness or discouragement. It is delightful to think that out of thu miseries of life, so many of which afflict us, there shall come the highest of our enjoyment-:. The pains shall be fruitful ones, "working out" an unspeakable blessedness. IDEJJ Take coffee of good brand, make it strong and when cold mix it with tho same quantity of rich cream.
