Getting the Clover Seed.
I have waited with a great deal of
anxiety to see an article in regard to
harvesting clover seed, but see none.
I have had much experience lor many
years, have harvested many crops and
have thrashed thousands of bushels.
I have also run a liuller for years. In
York state we always put it in tlie
barn and thrash it in the winter. It
is the safest to stack and cure it well
here in the West, if one is not sure
of a machine just at the light time.
Stirring it after heavy rains wastes
it badly. If cut af the right time and
stacked it makes a good deal of feed
and bedding in the winter, and we get
much more seed, as then it Is all thor-
oughly dried. If a few damp spots
are on it or the dew has wet it, one
cannot get the seed out of the hulls,
and half the seed is left and goes into
the straw pile, which should be scat-
tered over the wheat and rye fields in
The crop of hay should be cut and
off the field before the first of July to
get a good crop of seed. If we had
the old self rake to cut it and leave
it in piles or windrows, it would be a
help, but they are out of use. So we
have to use the mower and rake it
into windrows, when it is a little damp
in the morning or evening. If raked
when dry it breaks the heads off and
wastes the seed badly. It is also in-
jured by the machine and horses run-
ning over it, but that can't bo helped,
and we do the best we can with- the
tools we have. The majority of the
heads should be brown before being
cut. As soon as it is in shape thrash
or stack, and cover with straw. Slough
grass or a load of timothy hay on top
will answer very wall. In cold weath-
er it thrashes better and we get much
more seed.—S. G. Soverhill, Bureau
Co,. 111., in Farmers' Review.
Fall Work in the Vegetable Garden.
There is much work needed to be
done in the vegetable garden in the
fall. When spring comes there is no
time to properly prepare land that has
to be used for the first garden crops
in the spring. The land must be prop-
erly prepared in the fall, must be
plowed and harrowed, and must re-
ceive a heavy dressing of barnyard
manure. This is available for plant
food only after it has decayed, and
if it is put on in the spring, the early
plants do not get the benefit of it,
except in a very small degree. But
where It is plowed in the fall, the
process of decay goes on while the
ground is still open, and nearly all
the plant food is in a condition to be
assimilated as soon as the ground is
warm enough to work in the spring.
The greatest cause of failure in some
farmers' gardens is this very ignor-
ance of the fall preparation. The gar-
deners near the great cities never for-
get fall preparation of their land. In
no other way could they satisfy the
demands for early vegetables.

refuses to avail herself of wedding

Air and Seed Germination.
Air seems to be absolutely necessary
to the germination of most seeds,
except seeds that produce plants
of an aquatic nature. It is
well known that if any of
our seeds are placed in the
grourfd, and the soil tramped over
them so hard that it glax.es and will
not let the air through, the seeds will
not germinate. So it may be general-
ly expected that in the cartli at least
seeds will not germinate without the
presence of air. The problem, how-
ever, is more complox than one would
suppose; because If the same seeds
are placed in clear water, they germi-
nate as quickly as if exposed to the
air. They will, however, quickly die
and decay, this being due doubtless to
the deficiency of air.

One of the greatest triumphs of Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is
the conquering' of woman's dread
So-called " wandering pains" may
come from its early stages, or the pres-
ence of danger may be made manifest
by excessive menstruation accompanied
by unusual pain extending from the
ovaries down the groin and thighs.
If yon have mysterious pains, if there
are indications of inflammation ulcera-
tion or displacement, don't wait for
time to confirm your fears and go
through the horrors of a hospital opera-
tion; secure Lydia E. Pinkham s Vege-
table Compound right away and begin
its use and write Mrs. Pinkliam of
Lynn, Mass., for advice.
"Read these strong letters from grate-
ful women who have been cured:
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:— (First Letter.")
"In looking over your book I tee thar your
medicine cures Tumor of the Uterus. I have
been to a doctor and ho tells me I have a tu-
mor. I will be more than grateful if you
can help me, as I do so dread an operation."
—Fannie D. Fox, 7 Chestnut St. ,Bradford,Pa.
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:— (Secotid Letter.)
" I take the liberty to congratulate you 0111
the success I have had with your wonderful:
" Eighteen months ago my monthlies j
stopped. Shortly after I felt so badly I sub-
mitted to a thorough examination by a phy-
sician, and was told that I had a tumor on
the uterus and would have to undergo an

ments and decided to give Lydia E. Pink-
ham' s Vegetable Compound a trial. After
taking five bottles as directed, the tmnor is
entirely gone. I have again been examined

of a tumor now. It lias "also brought mj

Another Case oi'Tiimor Cured
by Lydia E Pinkham's Vegeta-
Dear Mrs. Pinkham:—
" About threo years ago I had intense pain
in my stomach, with cramps and raging
headaches. The doctor prescribed for me,
but finding that I did not get any better he
examined me and, to my surprise, declared
I had a tumor in the uterus.
"I felt sure that it meant mv death warrant,
and was very disheartened. 1 spent hundreds
of dollars in doctoring, but the tumor kept
growing, till the doctor said that nothing but
an operation would save me. Fortunately I
corresponded with my aunt in the New Eng-
and States, who advised me to try Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound before sub-
mitting to an operation, and I at once started
taking a regular treatment, finding to my
great relief that my general health began to
improve, and after three months I noticed
that the tumor had reduced in size. I kept
on taking the Compound, and in ten months
it had entirely disappeared without an oper-
ation, and using no medicine but Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and words
fail to express how grateful I am for the good
it ha« done me."—Miss Luella Adams, Colon-
nado ilotel, Seattle, Wash.

proves the value of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, and should give

Alphonse Hertlllon, the inventor of
the finger-print system of identifying
criminals, is described as a quiet,
modest man with more the appear-
ance of a scientist than of a hunter
of men. A high forehead, a well
balanced brow, a thin, oval face, a
pair of serene, dark eyes, a dark mus-
tache, obviously French, but not too
pronounced in curl; a trim, dark
beard, a complexion strongly remin-
iscent of parchment; long and deli-
cate lingers, a tall, light frame—these
are the characteristics of Bertillon.

Mrs. Palmer's Social Innovation
At the first dinner she gave in
Hampden house, London, Mrs. Potter
Palmer staggered everybody by lead-
ing the way into the dining-room. At
first her guests thought Mrs. Palmer
had acted absentmindeilly, but she
continued the practice so inaugurat-
ed. In England the hostess invari-
ably goes into the dining room last,
but several of Mrs. Palmer's friends
hope that her example will become
the fashion in London, holding that
it is obviously more sensible for the
hostess to enter the room first in or-
der to correct any mistakes in the "or-
der of sitting" before the guests begin
to flounder around the table iu
search of their names.
