The cost to make this stump burner was $1.25 and it was made as follows: The steel Jacket from an old abandoned food cooker was used for the lower part, and the square part for the top was bought from a local tinner, It and the jplnt of pipe costing $1.25. They are both a little heavier than ordinary sheet Iron. In operation; the device Is placed over the stump and a fire built around same with anything that may be handy for fuel. In some cases chips were used; In others, old rails, and In still others, pieces were spilt from the stumps themselves. Not only did the burner consume the entire stump In a short time, but In many cases the roots were burned out far down in the ground. A similar burner ' might be constructed from many are every year thrown In that things the scrap heap, and If the necessary material could not he found In the scrap heap, any tinner would build one for a small sum and your stumps would be burning while you were doing something else. The boys would Blmply love to operate one of these burners at least until the novelty wore off, and possibly the promise of a small sum of money when the last stump was burned out would prolong the novelty for a sufficient time to do the business.

In this connection, the published statistics showing the amount of commercial plant food materials used in Italy are significant. With a total area of less than 115,000 square miles (about twice the area of Illinois), Italy used 1,147,700 tons of commercial fertilizers In 1907. The great factor has been the introduction of fertilizers and purchased feeding stuffs. As soon as you can Introduce on a farm some extraneous source of fertility you can raise the standard of production. A. D.

I out during the wet season nor do we plan to leave a stubble to protect It from the hot summer sun. Animals will often walk from one end of a large pasture to another to get a nibble of some variety of grass that is different from that in the other end of the pasture. Pastures that contain the greatest number of varieties of grass 'are ln-- r ariably the ones that will support the most stock. It is one of the greatest evils of our system of farming to plow up a good pasture for It requires a number of years to get a good turf established. In selecting grass seed for a permanent pasture select kinds that will bloom in succession from early summer until late in the fall so that when one kind is not growing there will be another to occupy the soil and prevent weeds from growing in w here the soil is not occupied. In selecting grasses for the meadow select varieties that flower about the same time soi that they may be cured for hay atf one cutting. rfjhose that furnish the most lerTVca and thus diminish the amount of woody indigestible matter in the hay. It is folly to try to skim off a second crop from the meadows. If the growth is too rank in the fall pasture it off with young stock but do not pasture it close enough to injure its chances of living through the winter. Nature provides for winter by promoting a rapid fall growth. The old ideas of getting something for nothing have been exploded for a long time and If we cut three tons of hay from our meadows we must feed them accordingly and keep the bare spots covered with grass Instead of weeds. If we supply better forage rations for our live stock they will come through the winter In better condition and will require less grain to keep then, in a thrifty condition. We, as a rule, are feeding too much grain to our animals and unless we devote more attention to providing nutritious forage rations we must expect less hardy and vigorous animals. OF THESE IS BEST? With Catalogue Trading Houses, Sight Unseen, or With Merchant Who Helps Pay Local Taxes? f It sometimes seems as if Of the farmers were doing everything possible to fight nature and when we make a study of the various grasses and their peculiar needs we wonder that we have been succeeding as well as we have in growing good crops of bay. A careful study of the English system of maintaining a permanent meadow and pasture would essentially aid us in the management of our grass lands. There we may find from ten to twenty kinds of grass growing on one sod and all thriving and producing hay and forage. We go on our meadows when the proper times come, cut the grass, cure It into hay and haul it to the stack or barns and think no more about the whole matter until the next year comes and then we go out and go through the same motions only get a smaller crop and keep this up until the yield is so small that we feel it is necessary to plow up the field and reseed it to clover We don't go to and timothy again. the trouble of top dressing or fertilizing the meadow or tile drain to prevent the water from drowning it COMPOSITION OF Refinement. . .
