forward Corn is next to sugar cane the principal crop grown in Queensland and is one of the most important pro ducts of New South Wales A commercial estimate puts the area sown to broom corn in

is in quality although somewhat disappointing in quantity It is still selling at fifty cents Winchester DemocratThe of Millersburg vicinity have formed a pool for the sale of their wheat So far 57 cents is the best offer they have received and this they have declined The hot dry spell is playing sad with corn prospects but with good crops of wheat rye hay and oats to go on the farmer has a few

declare that there is no section to take them and are asking a delay for opening the lands till October as the cattle are now unfit for market Harrodsburg Democrat One of our representative farmers tells us that the wheat crop of this and adjoining ry few crops grading 60 pounds or No 2 wheat This farmer thinks there is a combine between speculators and grain dealers to buy wheat very low and says in view of the Very hot dry weather in the western middle states he would advise farmers to hold their wheat for better prices which are Lire to come From January 1 to July 4 1901 there were shipped from Argentina 21444000 bushels of wheat and 14904 000 bushels of corn against 54300000 bushels of wheat and 11082000 bush els of corn during the corresponding part of 1900 It thus appears that during the first half of 1901 the ex ports of corn were over onethird greater than during the first half of 1900 but the exports of wheat were considerably less than half as great Wheat and oat

Anything Elite to lCMBen the IrofitM of Farming How are weeds to be eradicated Know what kinds of weeds infest your premises Know their characteristics and habits of growth Learn how they propagate themselves Study them from every standpoint Then apply the remedy which will suggest itself Concerted action among1 determined to rid their farms of all forms of objectionable weed life will attain the ends sought Individ ual activity in this direction is high ly desirable but without harmonious action among all interested it will require a much longer period Indi vidual effort will beget larger and purpose and the result will be that in a short time the entire country will be inoculated with the weeddestroying fever Then weeds will go The destruction of annual weeds is accomplished by preventing them from producing seed which involves the cutting off of tops before seed is produced IHennials which by root stalks and seeds re quire more rigid methods of They yield only to persistent cutting off of tops which prevents seeds from forming and deprives them of pmt food from the air Perennials are still more stubborn than either of the others Most weeds are perennials Annuals are the most easily destroyed All kinds of weeds whether annuals biennials or perennials may be destroyed if their tops he kept cut off at the of the ground no stems being permitted to develop This results in the starvation of the roots as it were the laboratory with which they net in harmony being removed their own functions are kinds of weeds may be out by sowing the infested land to grass or other crops which are known to possess hardiness and thickgrow ing habits Let every farmer consider himself a committee appointed by his best interests to eradicate all the weeds on his own farm He thus may the

that a tenth of the agricultural output of this country is ruined annually by insects hence the necessity of keen careful observation on the part of the farmer As a rule it is not the creature responsible for serious loss of crops that is first seen but the damaged crop itself The re verse should be true By using his eyes more freely the average farmer could foresee in most cases damage to his crops by injurious pests and arm himself with the weapons of defense In some instances disastrous insect invasions could be largely averted if facts were generally reported to the various experiment stations Orange Judd J I t LOll Farmer- e Strom andhearty boy i Itmadno pain bearIfwould be all dispelled Tell friends about it as a exclusively for external use that relaxes the so pain

discomfort and pain as handling them their thin and sensitive skins seem to absorb from the surrounding atmosphere the acrid juices emanating from these plants is seldom a picnic or family gathering

Poison Ivy is found clinging to tree trunks 3 springand they BLOOD SATURATED WITH POISON OAR Mr John Friel of Bear Station Del writes I was poisoned with poison cak which went through my blood and my condition became so serious that the doctors all said I could not get well I remained in a precarious condition con fined to the house for six months when I saw S S S advertised and began its use soon realizing that it was doing mo good I continued the medicine and was cured entirely I think it tho best blood medicino made like edges and a underneath While the two plants are entirely unlikedowny appearance in appearance the poisonous effects are very similar After the swelling subsides the skin remains for a iu a rough and inflamed condition dotted here and there with bad looking ulcers and little festering sores It is remarkable with what regularity and certainty the disease returns and always on schedule time appearing the same month day and hour almost that it did the before Dont be deceived should all truly year longtime e WITH A RAINMAKER BY REV CIIAS M SHELDON Rev Charles 31 Sheldon author of In Ills Step tells in St Nicholas a story wliici is described as founded on fact I had been attached to the United States signal service in one of the western states he writer and obtaining leave of absence division superintendent of the X R 11 obtained permission to make a trip over the road with the professional rainmaker employed by the company The car was divided into two compart ments One was fitted up with sleeping and dining arrangements the other con tamed the mechanical and electrical ances used by the rainmaker It was in the professional end of the car that I was seated watching the rainmaker as he busied himself with certain pieces of apparatus that looked as mysterious to me as if they had been the stock in trade of a necro mancer Presently he finished his task and along and the rainmaker answered my questions with goodnatured amusement at some of them The whole affair was mys terious to me and the professors expla nations only added to thp mystery To tell the truth 1 had no faith in the power of the rainmakers combination of chemicals and electricity to produce a drop of moisture It was nearly lath when we drew up at the town where we were to be sidetracked and left to make trial It was a railroad town with a group of shops and three or four swelters We were backed upon the siding uncoupled from the train which went on and at once rainmaker made his preparations for letting the gases out into the air A crowd of curious men and boys had gathered knowing that the rainmaker was coming A committee of citizens from the town was on hand By this time it was dark and the apparatus was in shape The battery was turned on and in a few I was informed that the gases were being liberated There was little noise in connection with the work mill the whole thing was very undemonstrative We might as well eat our supper now said my companion Dont you have to watch anything No it goes itself he answered Thats the beauty of it I think we shall get a storm within 24 hours said the rainmaker after supper did not say anything To get a little I stepped out of the tar and trolled up the main track to I lie Hide sta Whats going on Havent you heard The big strike is on and all trains on the line have stopped running It was true The greatest railroad strike ever known had begun and there we were in that railroad full of men and no telling when we could In the morning we looked out upon the same dusty bleak hot prairie Our car was surrounded by a perfect men and boys all day Some of them made threats against the property hut we thought nothing of them There was feeling of excitement on all sides At night we felt obliged to close the doors car to shut out the mob I had made my arrangements to sleep and had in fact spite of the excitement of the evening supposed that all Was going to again when a shout outside Sne up standing and the rainmaker and I one of the side doors a little way to look out A large group of men could be seen running down the track to careful king the t moments I gathering town desperate pullout mobof pushedopen ot appIi lie t four fences or rocks sometimes reach ing great heights the leaves are square in shape smooth and three on each stem the flowers are of a color and the berries pale green or nearly andshiny greenishwhite ward iia They stopped on the other side of the switch from the sitting anti by the light of the burning smelter we them tearing up the rails The rainmaker closed the door anti locked it Tie then jccured the other door in the same way A small lamp had been burning on the shelf lie blew it out and whispered to me Itsour best chance of escaping notice The men arc excited they have been drinking and there is no telling what they may do now their blood is up Ten minutes went by a strange crash was heard It was followed by and another each nearer than the first and accompanied with great yells and cries What can they be doing I could not help asking At that instant before my companion could answer a peal of thunder rolled over the prairie and above the shouts of the mob The rainmaker smiled at me as much as to say I told you so and what would have said I do not know for the pext moment we felt the ear sway violently up and down as if caught on the swell of an earthquake Thin heavy trucks went up on one side and then came down with a jar thatsmashed nearly every bottle on the rain makers shelve There was an awful yen from the mob the ear rose on one side as if being lifted by giant hands Great heavens cried the rainmaker They are trying to tip the car over It was true The mob had resorted to this method of destroying railroad proper and the crashes we heard hall been made the overturning of cars Ours being like the rest on the outside may not have been distinguished by the men We tried vain to unlock the doors and get out AVe screamed and pounded but the car rustswayed on the tracks sickeningly for onp second and then over it went with us The crash that so stunned me that for awhile I did not realize what had happened My first return of clear ideas came on finding that I was drenched with water and dripping as if in a river I thought at first of the rainmaker curiously wondering if he thought this was the of producing moisture The tank jn the top of the car had broken open and the water had splashed out us The side of the car had split in such a way that I was able to crawl out from where I lay and get my head and shoulders out I3y this time sonic of the more sober men in the crowd realized the situation Iwas half kindly half roughly dragged outfrom the broken car bruised and but with no bones broken Next I saw the rainmaker standing near the track his face cut with glass and one arm broken The colored cook was nearly killed by bruisesIof a private citizen who kindly cared forthe professor and myself The Strike con tinued a week longer and we were unableto get away even if we had felt well enough I should say to make the story that on that memorable about midnight a tremendous thunderstorm burst over the town and drenched thecountry for miles around My friend therainmaker claims it as the result of hisscientific efforts Uatwcpected EiMcoHrajfe r the note she had writtennow Its the end she with cau
