Mr.  Brewster in axle a \ic\y Hue  speech, but failed to introduce  anything new iuto the situa  tion, and while he is doubtless  a brilliant, will have to show  nomethiiig more substantial  to create any sentiment of a  character designed to accomplish  his   ambition,     namely  VILLI pCI HI Hill,  ists why not present it to the  in plain, sensible, cold fact,  unadorned with abuse, and  personal spite, after all to go  at it in any but the plain,  truthful way is to heap insult  on fhe intelligence of the voters and is very small and  questionable politics.

When Mrs) Everett of North Attle-  boro, Mass., went out to ber hen yard  . she found a thief had stolen thirty fine  Buff Orpington hens.

How    to  Raise    Potatoes  Profits.  Fer    Big  , The aim in raising potatoes should be  to plant "so as- to get the biggest yield,  and at tbe same time with the least  expense. One of the farmers in Somerset county, Me., who bave been able  to i do this most successfully Is P. ������}.  Davis. *��������� He has received as big a yield  as SOO bushels "sr acr^ ia some instances and on the whole 300 to 500  bushels per acre. He tells his story,  how he did it, which many farmers  would dm well to follow. He writes in  the American Cultivator as follows:  The soil must be in the best possible condition as regard tilth and fertility. The dirt should be made fine  and mellow and the soil of good depth  before planting,the seed. If the piece  |S?of cldvei*?sod;then the time' for plow-,  ing does not j'couiji ho laueh, yef.?_������i  this easean; amplication, of a-small coat  of manure is good ahd enables us vto res  duce the expebse of commercial fertt?  lizer at least-one-Jialf and to further  increase the yield of from fifty to a  hundred bushels per sere yet case  should be taken not-" to put on too  much manure.  Plowing and. planting are only a  small part of the work of raising po-  tatoeis. They require considerable  care. "If in a dbry season they should  be cultiyated ofte��������� the lecse. dirt hay?  ing a tendency to moisten the plants.  If you wish to raise the largest pos-  jnore per  THE  POULTRY  DOCTOR  SAYS���������  That sscldy corn causes ranch mortality among poultry and ground corn,  especially where the green' taint cannot be seen and only an expert cau  detect the smell." Feeding such grain  with the idea that it is economy is certainly the kind that saves at the pinhole and wastes at ths buughole.  That many more turkeys would be  sold at Thanksgiving if they did not  have such easy access to buckwheat  and cornfields, for thousands are killed each fall when almost selling size  by stuffing with buckwheat and green  corn. Watching the turkeys at this  .time means more turks to sell, and the  profit is sure worth tbe trouble.  There would be less loss and worry  If young stock was better protected  from cold fall rains. These bring on  colds, catarrh, roup, canker, -chicken-  pox, and many a bunch of.promising  pullets has been spoiled for winter laying through such exposure.  There is much carelessness in the  disposal of dead fowls on many farms.  The manure pile is the general dump  for disease victims, and there they rot  unless eaten by hogs, dogs or fowls until they are hauled with the manure to  the field.  How's that for, bughouse business,?  Kujf eed. "   '"���������;-  ??There are many fall fairs that help  along the rooster undertaker. Birds  are? accepted that have chickenpox.  fafjUs, roup and most any old disease,  and fowls, that leave home in heal tn  -often become victims to contagion and  are shipped; hack to start an epidemic  in the flock.

A Very  Bad  Habit Caused  by  Overfeeding With Grain Rations.?  The habit some hens have of eating  the eggs as they lie in the nest is very  ___cyi_g to the owner.  Thi? bad habit I  is   usually   caused   by   overcrowding,  lack of exercise and the use of nests  that are too low to the ground and too  light. The habit rarely Is found among  a flock that Is on free range or that  is given  proper housing aind a well  balanced ration.  It is sometimes caused by feeding  too much grain, when the hens eat the  eggs la an effort to obtain meat food.  As a rule, the hen first acquires a  taste for eggs by pecking at a soft  shelled egg or one that has been broken In the nest.  It is hard to cure a ben of this hablft  once she has acquired a taste, for, tho  eggs. The best thing to do is to sell  her or cat her. If you wish to try  breaking the bird of tbe habit the most  successful methods are either to uso  a humber of chlua eggs or "loaded  eggs" ln your nest where the bird will  be sure to fiud them. After several  unsuccessful attacks on these eggs the  lien will probably become discouraged  and leave tlio rent of them alone.  The most effective way of preventing hens from acquiring the habit Is  to feed n balanced ration and compel  plenty of exercise, to build tho nesta  dark and about two feot from tho  floor, and construct tbem so that there  Is no danger of the eggs being scratched out on the floor and broken.���������Homo  A Mushreem Can Live In a Cellar, but  Don't Be a nluahroom.  In tbe American Magazine William  Johnston says that it is probably your  own fauit if you are all the time catch-  ing colds or having indigestion or headaches. He goes on to say:  "Nature intends every human being    .  to be strong and well.  Most disease is  either ignorance or carelessness. ���������. Ba- '  hies���������even-the babies of sickly, Igfio-  rant, incompetent parents���������are given a.  pretty good sta^t* by nature.   If children get sickly it nearly always ls the  fault of the persons taking care ot  them. If when they grow up they remain, unhealthy it is largely their own   ���������  fault. ?
