requires as such cows are usually large producers and de mand more food than inferior animals Every dairyman should breed his cows and make it a pointnever to buy a fresh one If his herd is healthy and free from disease he can keep his animals in good condition with much less difficulty while the yield of milk from each cow will be more than doubled in rt few years by judicious breeding and selection The buying of fresh cows by dairymen has been the greatest curse that has ever been encountered by them as it is the foundation of all diseases and i losses among the herds TO CURE EGO EATING Almost every one has had trouble with hens eating eggs Anyone who has suffered much from it will be glad to learn any way to prevent or cure it A poultryman of experience says provokinga k flock of hens which have acquired eggsThISvented than cured Give the lIens plenty of exercise with a eggsfrequentlyresting places and keep one or more porcelain eggs upon the floor of the house Dark nests are advisable and a meat diet is excellent To cure the habit provide dark nests and add meat to the food Remove the end from several eggs and pour out the contents Make a mixture of flour ground i mustard and red pepper adding r ajlittle water to hold the maters al together Fill the shells and place upon time floor of time hen f house Time hens will make a 1 II preparedIImh their contents and will soon be gasping with open beaks Fol low up tins treatment until the lIens refuse to touch an egg It ieens and perhaps is somewhat severe but no permanent ill ef- Ili fects will follow The hens will soon learn that eggs are not so themaand will desist from the bad hab it Positive cures have followed this method i i WIIIJEWABI11N HOUSE C There is more virture in white witch for the l11tyhouse

brood combs may be made of the darkest wax If a hive becomes daubed with propolis lift out the frames and place them in a new hive Hives should be made so that they can be opened without jar ring as sudden jars are very ir ritating to bees Under ordinary conditions bees willmake more honey in ordina ry frames than they will in sec tion boxes There is nothing in the world that will keep worms from get ting into bee hives except the kind of bees that will keep them outPollen is gathered by bees for the purpose of feeding their young broods and is carried to the Live on their legs Worker bees are hatched in twentyone days from the time the eggs are deposited queens in sixteen and drones in twenty four days It is better at this time to unite weak colonies than to try to strengthen them by drawing on moderately strong ones RECIPES Cookies One quart of flour one large coffee cupful of butter one cupful of sugar three eggs teaspoonful of soda dissolved in a tablespoonful of hot water and

lightly put and bake On t tIf farmers would take the trouble to ascertain the value of that which is more or less thrown away at this season they would perhaps make better use of much that is considered worthless Vegetable tops make excellent additions to the compost heart suelsmaterial is really valuable Bee tops are very rich in nitrogen and those from carroty parsni J and turnips aro well supplied with potash and also a fair quantity of the phosphates Potato vines contain a large quantity of potashand there is nothing morei valuable for composting than the refuse from the potato crop The vines from sweet potatoes afford the best mulching material for covering Strawberries that can be used and when out of use can then be composted Time fact is all the tops of vegetables should do service as a mulch before being carried to the compost heap and it is in such capacity that they render cornstalks valu able Time best method for mulching with the wastage from vegetables is to cover the vines intended to be mulched and lay rows of cornstalks on the top of it in order to prevent disturbance from winds One of the most serious losses is corncobs whichcontain in the ash nearly onefourth potash When we consider that the potash in the cobs is all derived from the soil on which time corn is grown it be comes a duty to restore it Cobs can be used as fuel without loss but the ashes should be carefully saved A large amount of waste is often permitted such lS allowing corncobs to be scattered here and there over the fields wher ever the hogs are fed when running at large It is true the cobs rot and do service in the course 4 f time but careful farm ers should gather them in order to place them at their disposal It does not pay to let straw be trampled and wasted by cattle nor is it good policy to leave cornstalks standing in the fields There are other duties to which such material may be applied previous to commencing decay and eventlfoimnt ytcds ett made serviceable if mowed and turned to ashes Every weed that grows robs the soil and it will not do to plow them under after they are matured as they will surely reseed the land but they should be gatheredand burned At this late period iin the season the seeds of weeds have been before now well dis tributed and their riddance depends on future cultivation but that is no reason for leaving them in the fields There is really nothing on the farm to waste ifin good hands but there is however a waste on many farms that can bo avoided WILL MEET TQfllGHT PROGRAM OP WEST KENTUCKY MINISTERS
