What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

V To Sink« Poor Farm Rich. ’‘The progressive farmer rotates his , crops. -He tile-drains jhls land. He keep's_dolry~fcowfl-op-mutton sheep or both. He breeds draft horses and does farm work with brood mares and grow­ ing colts. He improves the power of /the soil by growing legumes.\ James-Wilson,- secretary of agricul­ ture, in the above words sums up the vital principles“ ©! good farming.: \He declares that the people of'the United StateB have wasted their inheritance of land and wood, and the productiveness of the soli near the great centers of population haB steadily decreased. We, have been a nation of soil robbers, but there is at lost an awakening—slow but sure. Farmers of all sections are wanting to know how to stop the leakB nind in­ crease the deposits of their business and the government is helping them in many ways. There are over 9,000 persons employed In the Department of Agri­ culture and 2,000 of these are scientists, all working \intelligently toward^helfF lng the farmer solve the problems which confronts him. There ate sixty- five land grant colleges with 10,000 stu­ dents In. agriculture. These boys are learning that rotation of crops is neces­ sary, that live stock must be raised to make manure, of which there Is never enough. They are finding out that young grasses and legumes are nature’s per­ fect ration for domestic animals. Milk nnd meat and work are had more cheaply from the posture than from other sources. Pasture land Increases os farm .help becomes scarce. Mutton Bheep are suggested when labor is dear. Cultivated crops reduce organic matter In the soil and render it-unflt for profit­ able growing. Pasturing replaces or­ ganic matter. When good crops of grain or roots are wanted the pasture, plowed and reduced In season, is the best place to get them. Western farrn- ers lu the corn belt get their heavy crops from pasture land. With the help of Improved machinery the progressive Individual farmer Is producing much more than the average farmer did a generation ago and men of this class are keeping up the productive qualités of their farms. — The—neglected—lands-of—the-eastern- and middle states can be brought back to their primitive fruitfulness through the aid of scientific farming. Secre­ tary Wilson says they are the cheapest land In the country and people wanting homes who have saved a little capital from their earnings or young men of means and tastes for the independent life of the country will find rich oppor­ tunities In these landB for profit and usefulness. R e m o v ing S a p ling» and Stamp*. __ In. unrooting young trees a team o f horses or even a single horse with a chain can do effective work. Best re­ sults can be obtained where the growth consists of saplings two to rour Inches In diameter and where the root system is lateral. The plan is to fasten one end of the chain to the trunk as high above the ground ns the flexlbllltyof Fence Post Expense. An^^annunl fence post bill of mors than $1,250,000 Is one item in the ex- pense~account of~ thè \fanners t o f a slit gle agricultural State. It is estimated that the farmers of Iowa use posts hav­ ing a value exceeding this enormous sum each year to maintain the fences on the 25,000,000 acres of Improved land in the State. In making these estimates, H. P. Baker, professor of forestry in Iowa State Agricultural College, figured that the farms of Iowa required 78,000,000 posts for fences, or 2,000 to the square mile. Placing the value of the posts at 15 cents each, the cost of renewals ev­ ery eight or nine years, which is the life of the post, is $11,718,000, making an annual bill for renewals of $1,465,- 000. Like many other farming States, Iowa has a lack of fence post material, but there Is little .excuse for this con-. ditlou, according to the foresters who ‘ have made studies in the State. A prop­ erly managed forest plantation will produce, when the trees have reached post size, 3,500 posts three to five inches in diameter per acre; thus, It would take 22,350 acres about every ten years to grow the necessary posts to supply the Stater—I6wa Is said to have 200,- 000 acres of planted timber, and yet the fence post supply is 'insufficient. If properly cared for, many of these plan- tatlons con be mnde to produce more timber, and thus insure the future post supply. — These:200,000-acresaremot*at-present furnishing the posts which It Is esti­ mated can actually be grown on 22,350 acres of properly handled forest land. Since rendering the decision revere‘ ing the fine of $29,240,000 imposdigjapa* the Standard Oil Company by Jude* Lhndis, Judge Peter S. Grosscup o fT h t \United States Circuit Court of Appeal^; has received many intimidating fetter*! some threatening to kill him and others to blow up Ills bouse with dynamite. The letters have been sent to Chicago from all over the country, some ■<& them unsigned nnd others bearing evi­ dently fictitious names. Judge Grosscup was appointed to the bench—the District Court of the United State's—during President Harrisoifs administration. It was for disobedi­ ence' of an injunction issued by film that Eugene Debs, head of the A m a l­ ean Railway Union, was sent to jaU\ for contempt, during the great railroad strike, thereby becoming a political martyr. The Judge is a native of Ash­ land, Ohio. His ancestors settled in E ffect» o f K a r a ! D e livery. * There is n veritable-network of rural routes out of nearly all of the towns in' this section of the State, and seldom does one find n farmer who is not placed in a position to take advantage^ of one. With present conditions exist­ ing, the man' on the farm has the op­ portunity to take his'dally paper as the Dne In' town, and gets his mall some­ times earlier than many of the resi­ dents of the cities, '.there are rural mall carriers and rural mall carriers— each one has his striking characteris­ tic. The majority are favorites in their particular field, and as a rule the patrons of his route would not trade him for any other man on an­ other. The carrier and the farmer letti’ll to\Know each otner, ana tne coun- try visitor on hearing them greet each other would say they were both \good fellows.4’ The man that 'carries the mail should have a whole lot of credit He Is obliged to make the trip in all kinds of weather and the best of pro­ tections will not make the job an en­ joyable one. Sonic time when he is not busy, let the reader talk a few min­ utes to a rural mail carrier and he will find that he Is in touch with ev­ eryone on the route. — Bloomington (111.) Pantograph. STUMP.

Many very worthy people, having gone through life nnd endured their share of its trials and misfortunes, at­ tune their minds to the sombre key, and go softly the rest of their days; subdued and depressed, they dare not rift their eyes above the earth level of their sorrows; patient, It Is true, but undeniably mournful, they round out tlie years of their pilgrimage. Not thut they are altogether to be blamed for this frame of mind-. When one has been beaten and buffeted find used despitefully it Is not to be won­ dered at that one comes to be very much' afraid of what the next day shall bring forth. < But bounding youth knows naught' o f this submission, and to make Its kiss - the rod, so to speak, when to It .no- rod is visible, far or near, Is to breed up a spirit of impatience, not to say revolt We often behold an elderly aunt or perhaps a patient and \devoted father or mother trying to make various young- hopefuls see that they axe prison­ ers In a vnle of tears, and that under. all chastenlngs they must try to be quiets and humble; but young hopeful \ftrids1t~a1l very much of a bore, longs to be away to kick free heels In a very gnod and joyou8- world of~ green \fields and still waters, and will have none of ito To preach that life is a matter of eternal sacrifice to the exuberant ons o f youth and health is to shake their faith In or doctrine as well as sanity. Religion, It Is true, helps us to bear sorrow; but to speak only of this side of it is to make of It a matter of gloom; which Is easily an injustice to the sub­ ject and a thing which will do it more harm than good. Youth should hear rather of tho doc­ trine o f that love which showers Joy and happiness.—Let the matter of got- row be left always In the background until the sad. inevitable time comes when it must needs bt Inevitably faced. Too sadly often Is It true that llfo comes to be a matter of sacrifice sooner or later; but when It comes It Is time enough- to~thlnk-of-lt-or-gpeak-of\It or preach resignation to It - N o t L l k * m W o m a n . “Have yoa Interviewed that female criminal?” “L have tried to.” “Tried, to?” “Yes, but she refuses to talk.” “Refuses to talk!
