To . teach for .the sake, of  doing good is noble, and there is no  hnrm in, working for money, provided you do your .very best to earn yoiu*  n\oncy. Who ever expects to teach  schools on the "flowery beds of ease"  might as well abandon the field at  the outset. There is no need for a  teacher to be eternally grumbling  about small salaries, school directors  and superintendents and unnecessary work.

Those who come in across cur southern boundary are not only acclimatized, but are familiar with prairie  methods of farming. They make,  good settlers.

Everyone should have an "ideal"'  hut he should not remodel it into an  "idol."  Mr. Lincoln's faith in God was.  qualified by a very well-founded  distrust of the wisdom of man.  There are two good scources of information on the subject of dancing  ���������-married people and ��������� dancing masters. The latter .exert themselves  telling you what you' should do.

Or  what loving husband exer.fails to remind his wife every time she makes  a fa-us pas? - But this free information is only exchanged between married people; they are a. scource of information "but to'one another, and.-.so  the unsuspecting young, man or girl  who "knows nothing of wedded bliss  must go on making errors, and just  as a suggestion, these, "don't." arc  respectfully   submitted.  Some people "don't dance; they just  fight ii. cut.  , Don't' dance with your wife..inst  once ancl then park hor for the rest,  of the evening.  While dancing don't let your, face  betray the fact that your wife-makes  you do it.  Don't act like a martyr every time  your wife asks you to dance.  Don't stop in the middle of the  floor to show your partner your favorite stop. She appreciate-"- free instruction ever so much, but girls -ire  naturally timid and so prefer their  lessons   in   private.  Don't hold the hand above the  head,if you must indicate that you  are a member of the Royal Straphang  ers, wear a button. ���������  Don't   cultivate  freak   positions.  From the appearance of some persons    while   .dancing,  it     looka    as  though a great many people are practising up for jiu jitsu exhibition.  Don't look, so helpless. Smile! It  could   be  worse.  Now Uiat the country is dry, it  looks as though people are trying to  get the old results by. turning the  same way all the time.  Don't take tlie feet off the floor  and'prance.. Somebody may not li-ke  the sort of. animal you suggest.  Don't hum or whistle. Be considerate of your partner. Tn any case  the tune should be changed at least  once- every ten-- minutes. Hum in  the same key with the orchestra, but  don't attempt to down their music.  Don't become angry if, when you  start humming-,...your .partner nsks  "what did you-say?-" If probably  sounded that -wtt'y to hor.  Don't woggle. Swaying may be  good'exercise but.it is bad-form.  If you .can't talk and dance at the  same time, don't talk.  Don't forget that you are simply,  dancing. The- privilege of putting  your arm around the girl's waist is.  in the contract when you asked her  to dance but this does not call for  any love scenes.  The fellow who said that the ball  room was a great place to spoon in  may he dead wrong, but from appearances it is evident that there are a  great many who are. willing to take  the  chance.  Don't forget the-audience". "Cheel  charming" may be a great indoor  sport but one of the principal rules  is that there must be j-.o spectators.  Some one may think it is bad taste  Don't strain your nervous system.  Some people don't dance; they just  work.  Don't imitate a trolley. Sirunlv  back the girl around theroom whibj  the music' is playing is not f*n idea:  way of showing a girl a big time  Don't give an exhibition. "Stage  dancing is very pretty, but it is out  of place in the ballroom. ���������  Don't try to outwalk your partner  in the ballroom.

The-ground chould be one on  which, writer wiib.nol stand duriu'g  the winter to form ice.  -   Manure at  the rate of ten  to fifteen toiici per, acre    may be    applied  and .plowed    under,  or  even     more  may    be    used to    advantage    if n'o  other fertliiders are to bo'used.    It  is usually  considered   wise  to .apply  | f������ve hundred pounds of a <l-8-4  fertilizer  per   acre.     That   is*   one  containing 4. per cent of nitrogen, 8 per  cent  of phosphoric  acid   ar,id   4   per  cent of potash.    Plo.wever. iir the soil  Is in good fertility this is not necessary and manure    alone    may be all  that  is    necessary.    AH     fertilizers  should"dje- scattered   broadcast,   and  harrowed  in.  Thorough preparation of the soil  by plowing and working deeply is  advisable. The land" is finally levelled with a smoothing harrow and  tho plants set in rows three and a  half feet apart and fourteen inches  apart in a row.. Closer planting ia  .unnecessary and does 'not permit of  easy cultivation between tho rows  and opportunity of picking without  tramping on the vines.  The planting is done by pushing  a spade into the soil, pressing it  to one side and dropping a plant  with roots" spread fan-shape into the'  level soil and pressing the earth  firmly around the plant with the  heel or some other way, and finally  levelling with loose earth around"  the crown of the plant. This is  quickly done." The importance of  pressing the soil firmly around the  plant is very great and the plant  should; be sufficiently firm, so that  If the plant is pulled by a leaf the"  ������eaf will break before tho plant will  pull not. Only young plants should  pull out. Only young plants should  be set; that is, plants of the pevious  season's    growth. The     planting  should be done early, in fact, tlie  earlier the better. Much of -the  failure with strawberries is due to  late planting-. This is a job fh:<f,  can be done in the ealv spring, the  sooner the plant becomes established  the earlier the formation of runner  plants", and the earlier these runner  plants! form, the larger and better  developed are the crowns, without  which.strong stall��������� of well-formed  fruit  are  impossible.  The'Rummor cultivation should  ha  shallow  to." kill   weeds  and   form     a  loose surface in which (.lie plant c������n  .root without'difficulty.    An tho runners   develop   the   cultivator   should  | be 'narrowed,   so   that  the   runnera  jaro not distributed . after they commence to form plaiiis end. great'care-  is: .-necessary  to avoid  disturbing th������  plants at    this    time.    Some-of    the  ] runners may  be    shifted ������'give    a  more    even     distribution  of    nlnnfR  along the row, and some hand  hoeing    will    be    necessary to    prevent  , weeds from growing later.  'ft is. wise to plan for *a new plantation .every   year,   as  it  is   difficult  to   keop   weed?   under   control     the  .secondjyear without hand hoeing.  |_   it will be found, that the Senator  Duiilap  ;s  one of 'the best  varieties  .to-plant.
