portion of the paper should bee peci ally for them We really wish that people liv ingon the farm realized their op portunities Like all the rest of us they do not realize their opportu nities to the full The farmer is in the best possible position for rais ing poultry for the fancy and for the market as well but the farmer doesent always know it He thinks the man who lives in a small town is more favorably situated We recently read an article that statelihat the farmer iu Switzer land lives on what the American farmer wastes We do not doubt it We know also that some American farmers are living on what their neighbors waste Closely akin to waste in fact a kindof waste occures onthe farms when the farmer neglects many small sources of income which lie closely at hand- Farmers in Scotland pay a rent of 15 and more per acre and make money but they do not do it by careless wasteful methods They have to make every acre yes every one hundredth part ofan acre countThe American farmer likes to do things in a large way He thinks a garden is beneath his notice and says he can not spare au acre of ground for that purpose and in this he makes a serious mistake Most Western farmers do not raise enough vegetables for their own use Ve will go further andsay that the dwellers in the towns and cities eat more vegetables and truits being raised chiefly by those who make a specialty of them Vhy a farmer should not raise vegetables and fruits sufficient at least for his own use we do not nnI dersland We are tempted to say that it is just pure shiftlessness The farmer looks on these things as mere side issue But the plain fact is that there is good money in these things in proportion to work expended They oug lit not to be considered side issues but a neces sary part of the farm The farmer and his family would be healthier happier andwealthier if he would pay more attention to the orchard and the garden And of course the poultry yard belongs to this same class With most farmers poultry is decidedly side issue Putting very little in to it they get very little out Poultry is one of the undeveloped sources of profit on most of our farms A business farmer has no right to consider as beneath his no tice a branch oflive stock farming which for time labor and money expended yield s as much profit as a ly other We are not saying that every farmer should go into poultry on a considerable scale but more fowls should ek ptpll most oj our farmsaQdwhatismoreitili- rpo rt n those that are kept on the should be made to yields profit If the farmers and 1 w u u J W HUTCHESON Casher 1m U 1 Z 5 GOOD 5 tlAf1f t 115 For sale by U G IMThis family have no love for poultry it would not be best to keep a large number but when the profits are so satisfactory we often wonder why more of our farmers do nov make this branch of farming a specialty It would pay and it would pay some of them bigPoultry Item THE GRIP Before we can sympathize with others we must have suffered our

they should remember that a soft answer turneth away wrath PHILOSOPHER Solomon gives two specific instructions on that point to meet two emergent cases He advises to answer one kind of a fool according to his folly and to treat the other with dignified si lence The remedy for the one is the irritant for the other and vice versa The fooli who has jut enough wit to know when he is sufficiently answered and he can say no more without getting into still deeper humiliation should be promptly and persistently answered But the fool who lacks even the self respect to protect himself by bridling his tongue should be ignored though sometimes this is nearly impossible to do MORALISTr think we can rest our case on the text quoted by both of us and leave the future contact with
