After lowering his sail he waits a few minutes then takes his strandon the bow of his boat Alongside of him is his landing net with a handle six feet long He raises the buoy and stone and hand over hand pulls his bout along the line When a crab clinging to its refreshment comes in sight he seizes his net dashes it under the crab and flings it into the boat The wary crab may loosen his hold and

islands of the Indo Pacific reelon says Prof Thilenius who has been closely studying the subject for some months the belief prevails that persons who are tattooed have a much better chance of getting safely into the next world than those who art not tattooed says the New York Her old As a typical example he cites the case of the women in the Latighlan Islands a small group east of the south end of Xevr Guinea These women tattoo the greiterpart of their bodies with angled designs but never fail U tattoo concentric circles on their legs They believe that between the Laughlaa islands and the island of Vatum in the Trobriand group to which their souls should go there is a greatmakeover which they mustpass The snake asks each soul for her tot Sfistinz and the soul takes it off and KtR Y tt tfl with it The snake then becomes road and flat and tliesoul passes over It as over a bridge If however the soul is not tattooed flie snake shrinks and the soul falls into the sea and cannot reach the bles red sanctuary in Vatum Moreover worse stillJ these wretched souls ares fhtway changed into fish fThis strange belief has prevailed in tje Laughlan Islands for a long time and there is no

the vine is not frozen In seeding for a permanent pasture two items are important One is to sow a good variety of grasses in order to get a full sup ply of growth and the other is t6 distribute the seedasev nl aSr possible in order to insure entire covering of the ground Our best farmers run their seed oats through the fanning mill anti say they are well repaid for so doing Experiments have shown that heavy selected seed will produce more vigorous and productive plants than will seed that is not recleaned Besides there is nothing to interfere with perfect distribution by planting machinery noo NOTES Save the sow pigs from large litters they are likely to be pro lific The hog house should btvplneed on a hill where there is good drainage fr Give the hogs wood asho sul phur and salt they will keep the digestive Bystqm toned Roots and clover hay should bo stored handy by the pigs They will then be easily obtained when wanted to feed the swine The sow with a bud disposition should not be retained as a breeder her pigs ore likely to inherit her temper It will oe better to discard the family We find that grinding corn in creases its value as pig food ma terially Meal consisting of cob and grain ground togethor is equal and often proves superior in feeding value pound for pound to the clear corn meal This superiority of the corn and cob meal is caused by the light
