When 1 was a boy 1 remember that 1 Was taught to hit & rusty nail on the head-before trying to draw it. The jaJ? Idosetted the fust and made the nail easy to draw. In that connection WaS att old story that 1 used to hear, as follows: A man Very learned, and a scientist, was in the habit of employing a good deal of help. Being a man in quest of wisdom he was ai.wa.ys on ' the lookout for little lessons to be learned from his hired men. One day he employed to do some work a neighbor who was counted anything but bright. He concluded that that man at least could teach him nothing. However he set the man to drawing some nails and noticed that before trying to draw them he would always first pound them in. Asking the reason, he was told the theory, as above, which goes to show that men gather wisdom as bees do honey. The necessity of a closer fellowship among dairymen was emphasized by W. D. Hoard at a re- Cent dairy convention when he said: "We come here to enlartre the intellectual part of our business, to rub up. our minds, to get new ideas. I have , noticed myself that almost all good Christians need to rub up against one another occasionally in order to refresh their Christianity. If they don't they soon get cold, you know, and the devil gets in and puts in his best licks right to sell & counterfeit, no matter how £<M>d it may be. The question of counterfeiting is not affected by the serviceability of the counter! eit. Some people buy oleo knowing it to be such. Some men sell oleo, carefully stamping it as such, and more than that, have signs ft dozen feet long proclaiming their product to be butterine. On the other hand a great deal of the oleo is sold tinder the head of creamery butter, and it is this latter method that is hurting the dairy interests and of which dairymen complain. An instance came under my own observation a few years ago. Before the national law Was passed compelling sellers of butterine to stamp it as such, cheating of this kind Was particularly rife. A smart fellow got wind of the fact that the Grand Pacific hotel, Chicago, was funning short of first class butter. He determined to play the philanthropist and supply the deficiency. Purchasing a wagon load of the best butterine, he assured himself that all marks were removed that would distinguish it from the genuine dairy product, and took it to the hotel, He sold it all at the top price for creamery butter, and cleared about $50 by the operation. It is not probable that that was the first or the last butter exploit of this particular sharp fellow, or that he was or is the only one in the business. When this incident is repeated over and over by a multitude of men, it must be evident to all that a great wrong is being done the dairy interests of the country. It is right that the dairymen should be given a law that will protect them against these treacherous counterfeiters. There arc laws now, it is true, but too imperfect or too poorly enforced to do much to stem the tide. Jay in Farmer' Review. Autumn Poultry Notes. The man or woman who puts bitsiness methods nto poultry keeping never fails of success, and success too that,, is far more sure and satisfactory than is vouchsafed to the majority of the departments of energy and enterprise that agriculture has to offer. Now what are a few of the ways in which good business is made manifest in the condiict of poul- fhree times a week givfe & half pitH 6J the oil meal to twenty-five hens. st ivrtiitty- shot*-*. Of course 1 do hot knot* What the existing conditions art in other states relative to poul* try at the state fairs, but have been disappointed at not being able to make an exhibit in our own state fair recently, because of the lack of suitable provisions made for the fowls While at the exhibition. If such conditions do ejtlst in other states as well as this, then is it not about time that our farm papers took this matter «p and aired it in its true light? And is not this, at the close of the annual fairs, a good time to ascertain just how poultry is handled at the different state fairs? Usually there are thousands of villagers and "city folks," who are more interested in the poultry exhibit than in cattle, hogs, sheep, etc. Some farmer asks, why? Because in every one's make up there is a love for domestic stock, and not having ground enough to keep a cow or horse they (the masses) keep a few chickens, to which the whole family become thoroughly attached, hence they look up the poultry exhibit about the first thing. And usually find things about like this: A lot of fowls cooped up without proper care, no food or water, and fairly gasping for a little fresh air, continually moving about in pens that have not been cleaned out for from four to eight days, and could they talk would ask what they had done to be used like this. Some of these birds might be fair specimens, but for the conditions in which they are placed, but the majority are a lot of culls that would be disqualified by the standard of perfection. Now the masses conclude that as this is a state fair exhibit "open to the world," that the birds shown must be the best of their respective kinds, and all are more or less disappointed if not disgusted. The truth is that the best fanciers dare not subject their best specimens to such rude treatment, fearing the consequences, so they keep their birds just where they should—at !:->•"' " r FfcVMr) | V THE ILLUSTRATION IS A TYPICAT.

One is by using printer's ink to make known what one has to offer. If you have superior cockerels or pullets to dispose of, just put a card or small "ad" in your agricultural journal.

He had just finished his course the evening on which the fire broke out, and the manager of the course held in his hand a check for $1,000 — the net proceeds of two or three of the lectures. He proffered the check to Mr. Fronde, but the warm-hearted Englishman immediately prdered it paid to the oroper authority for the benefit of the sufferers by the fire. "When I used to go home sixty years ago from Maryland to Ohio," said an octogenarian to the New York Sun, "the journey consumed a Cvcek. Sometimes I ivent by way .of Cumberland. The rival stage coaches raced all the way from that town to Wheeling. We nearly starved during those long rides, for, although there was a stop every ten miles to exchange horses, the time allowed for whal was miscalled refreshments was cut down so that one had to chooso between hunger and certain indigestion." ._' ________ ...... ___ . _ FACTS AND FIGURES: the largest Siberian dug up weighed 809 The tusks of mammoth ever pounds, ' One of the famous "big trees" of California is conjectured to be 4,000 years old.
