Speculation is as dangerous to the farmer as it is to the city man. Getting into debt to buy more land or more implements is generally speculation. In holding grain there are two things to be considered besides poss'ble increase in price. There is bound to be some shrinkage, and you are out the interest on your money. Unless both your stock and your soil are growing better you are liable to wulre up some day and find that farming does not lieht had shown thpre nil the time," affirms the Airerican Bee Journal, which says further: "Many times we have lierm a<>ked why they prefei the darkness, bat there are good reasons for doing PO. All know that honey is a liquid without any solid sugar in it. But, after standing, it gradually assumes a crystaline appearance; in other words it gfanulafeH, and ultimately will become a solid mass. Some have stated that this change is due to the same agent which alters the molecular arrangement of the iodine of silver on the excited collodion plate, and determines the formation of camphor and iodine crystals in a bottle. "We are informed that Prof. S:hieber enclosed honey in well corked flasks, some of which he kept in perfect darkness, while the others were exposed to the light. The result bus be»n that the portion exposed to the light soon crystalizes, while that kept in the dark remains unchanged. Hence, we see why tho bees are so careful to obscure the glass windows which are sometimes placed in their hive. Tne existence of the young depends on the liquid ity of the saccharine food presented t them, and if the light were allowed acces to this, in nil probability it would pro?, fatal to the inmutes of tho hive." MONICA. A STORY OF. THESE TIMES. pay. There must along these lines. be constant progress Land plaster is valuable as a deodorizer and absorbent about the stables, and is better so used than applied direct to corn or clover—a practice once very general, but now fallen pretty well into disuse. Utilize Dea-i AiiimalH. When a,u animal dies on tho farm its carcass should Oe utilized. It is folly to bury it in the wood lot and then go 'and buy "blood and bone" for fertilizing. Cut the carcass up as much as you can and bury the parts in muck or loam, so that nothing is lost, and break up the bones and plant them where the roots of Jruifc trees and grapevines will reach them. Iitirga Yield of Potatoes. Special fertilizers for potatoes have given wonderful yields on potatoes this season. Sandy soils have been found capable of giving Jarge yields when the seed is properly cut and special potato fertilizers used. It has also been noticed that by the use of fertilizers there is less rot, or disease compared with potatoes grown where barnyard manure is used. The over-feeding of breeding stock is an evil that demands attention. It is well known that lor breeding purposes an animal should not be excessively fat, yet animals are exhibited at fairs ao "breeding" stock, when, in fact, they arc in a condition which is just tho opposite to what they should be. If fat animals are attractions at fairs they should be in- Winter Calves. In wintering calves a great mistake i often made by try ing iu get tl:cm throusj too cheaply. Many farmers who fei:d ii! other stock well will try to winter calve; upon not much besides the straw stuck. 1 may _ be possible to get them througl alive in such manner, but they will conu ou!, proor and scrubby in the spring, tint it will require a long time to get (hem ii good condition. Their growth and do velopment is in-rested, and to get then well started on tho upward grade agaii will cost more than it would have done to keep tliem well through tho winter, anc the result, in tho ontl will not bo as good Although the calf in itseif may not be a very important item, we must 'remember that wo look to it for tho good fat steer, 01 the good milch cow of the future, am these are only to bo obtained profitably, it at all, by steady and thrifty growth from birth to maturity. Make due arrangements then, now, for a proper supply'o winter feed for the cnlves as well ns fot other stock. They will profit, as well a? any, by having good bright hay, wel ciued corn fodder, chop, etc"., and by having a silo so that some succulent food uiaj be given in connection with it; good ust may be made of clean oat straw. But this should be fed undercover, if possible, instead of exposing the young animals to inclement weather, as nnist. be done when they are turned out to feed upon the stack. Good warm quarters, arranged so that thov can be well ventilated, "ru.d easily kept elctiv:, are also as important as gooc food, and now is the proper time to make arrangements for them.—Northwestern Farm and Breeders. TUB HOTJSEIIOIVO. Life, and Eternity. And what is Life? I pray you tell; A Bliigignrd'H paradise,' Where fools and Idlers nourish well And troubled winds ne'er rise? Ah, no, my child! A InUllelleld Whoro encli must, lake n Hide; And 'niidst.tlio strife a saber wield And to the vanguard rhle.

Ah, no, ray child 1 Ono common breath Will waft you lo Us shore — There sickness, sorrow, palu ami death Are folt und toured no muro. A. principle is something thai; we ought to be willing to live and die for. Suffering is a chariot drawn by horses whose faces are toward heaven.

The same year wo exported cheese to tfie value of §8,591,042, What we imported came in the shape of the small and rich Swiss and French cheeses, ith which the article we export cannot possibly compete. But almost all this imported cheese might be made in this country—probably all but the Swiss—and while we cannot bring the Swiss mountains hero, we can furnish u first-class imitation. Any enterprise that has for its object the making of these sniall cheeses on American soil is most •prthv of encouragement, says the Rural Yorktr. Cutting Corn. Tf the fodder is to stand in the field until *Tf.ed out, under ordinary conditions the best plnn is to cut and put up m good-sized .shocks, as there is less lo-s by exposure to sun, rain and wind than when in small shock/., if, however, it is intended to shock out ami haul under shelter as soon as possible after it h«i 3 cured oa t it will pay to put up m simili shocks, as it will cure out more rapidly and \ J(3 j ess wor j c to handle.

You can wri'.c if, down its true that wherever there is love there will be sacrifice. You can tell what kind of a spirit there is in man by the way he treats woman. There is no bigger coward anywhere in the world than a man who is afraid to do right. E7ory life of faith and obedience is a refutation of skepticism and an unanswerable argument, in favor of religion. the Christian Roots as l for Tlieop. There is quite a disposition on tho part pf our most experienced breeders of sheep to teed more roots. This is one of the great sheep feeds known in GreatBritian, and'pne which has been neglected by our American breeders, we fear, too long. American breeders and importers are procuring the services of trained shepherds who cannot make n complete ration for sheep without the use of roots. Cab- Jfcgpes, turnips, rutabag.s and beets were [wrought into use at the state fair grounds by these English sheplimls. We predict Jt'or the future care of cheep in this country niore roots than in year* p^st and gone. Bees Working ut Night.

For a Christain to maintain an intimacy with the ungodly is like letting a company of catoiwers into his house. They will leave their ugly marks on the furniture—their odors of evil drink and noxious fumes in the air—and the recollections of their poisonous talk in its memory. A heart is known by tho com pany it keeps. No secret tun ought to have a '•night-key" to its doors. No wicked practice should have access at its back windows. Many and many a sly temptation will present itself at its door decently clad "in the white robe," and with smooth word on its tongue. "The dangerous sins are those which are gentol- ly dressed." Wherefore tho master solemnly cautions us to watch with prayer. Blessed is that servant whom, when the master cometh, ho finds watching at every door aad window.

What is the effect of these meteoric stones and thig cosmic dint in increasing the mass of the earth V Of course the earth, constantly bombarded by celestial projectiles, in slightly augmenting all the while- in volume and weight. 0,io astronomer has estimated at 146,000,000,000 the number of projectiles, big arid little, which annually ivach the surface of the earth. Supposing that each meteoric stone I as a volume of a, cubic miluuetru.or about a third of an inch in all its dimensions, and a density seven times as great as that of water, our globe would thus be annually increased by a volume of 146 cubic metres, and a weight of over 2,500,000 pounds. • ;: * * * * * "They are, the most nnpleasant peasantry In tlio word," says tlio Sijnirc, SOUKS hours utor, - the words coining like u dreary sigh Ihrouga the clouds of lobatjco-snioke tluit: cm-Is upward from his fuvorilcnieersuhanni.
