Vinegar From Cull Apples.
A bushel of fruit produces practi-
cally 32 pint bottles of fine cider,
worth 25 cents a pint wholesale. That
means eight dollars for a bushel of
fruit. This same cider can, by
proper handling, be made Into 40
pints of vinegar. The price will de-
pend upon the quality and the man-

Place for Iris.
If the iris can be given a somewhat
moist location, it should find a place
in the amateur gardener's collection,
always. The German and Japanese
varieties are simply magnificent in
coloring and remarkably stalely in

Moving Currant Bushes.
A correspondent from Missouri
writes to know the best time to move
currant bushes and how the work Is
Walt until late in the fall, dig up
the bushes with as much dirt around
the roots ^s possible and set out in
the new location.
The soil should be dug up to a
depth of two feet, mpre or less, and
well fertilized wiht rotted stable ma-
nure. Disturb tho roots as little as
possible and firm down the ground all
around them. Keep the weeds away
next spring and the bushes will prob-
ably get along all right.
Protecting Rose Bushes.
A good way to protect a bed of ten-
der rose bushes is to bend them care-
fully down to the ground, hold them
in position with stakes and then cover
with leaves, straw or earth. On my
own rose bed, says a gardener, I fol-
low this plan, using a heavy layer of
leaves held in place by a wide strip
of wire chicken netting laid flat on
the bed and securely staked at the

(By E. E. LITTLE, Iowa Agricultural
College Experiment Station.)
The plum may be propagated either
by budding or by root grafting. In
general practice the former is the
more successful, the work being done
at the close of the active growing
period. The Marianna and the Myro-
balan plums, and the peach, are often
used in southern and eastern nurser-
ies for plum stocks. These are not
recommended for use in Iowa, be-
cause tbey lack hardiness. In top
grafting the plum, it 1s important that
the stock and the cion belong to the
same or a closely related species. If
this is not the case the union is apt
to be unsatisfactory, and the tree be-
comes poorly developed and Is short-
lived. For the American varieties,
stocks of the native species should be
used. Miner is highly recommended
as a stock for the American plums by
some of our Iowa growers.
The Americana plum abounds
throughout the prairie regions and
does well on black prairie soil, as well
as on heavy clay soils along streams.
So long as the drainage is reasonably
good, this type of plum does well on
a wide range of soils.
Under average conditions, spring is
the best tim? for planting plum trees.
Jn exceptional seasons with a favora-
ble moisture supply, fall planting may
be done with success, providing the
work is done early so that the trees
may become reestablished before win-
ter sets in. Often, however, the mois-
ture supply in the fall is an uncertain
quantity, and if the ground Is at all
dry the tree which has been recently
disturbed is likely to suffer severely
during the winter.
The distance apart to plant depends
somewhat on the variety and also
on the type of soil. Generally IS to
20 feet apart gives ample room.
The plum naturally produces a
thick, dense growth, eventually result-
ing in an excess of fruit spurs and a
heavijy-shaded top. tinder such con-
ditions the fruit is liable to be poorly
colored, and the dense shade tends to
maintain a damp atmosphere which
encourages the development of plum
fruit rot. Sufficient pruning should be
done to correct this tendency. Any
cross branches should be removed.
As fruited at this station and else-
where in the state Golden is an at-
tractive, golden yellow plum, rather
large for its class, being about the
size of Burbank. It is one of the few
varieties having Japanese blood,
which appears to he well enough
adapted to Iowa conditions to merit
further testing. Tree vigorous, com-
paratively hardy and rather produc-
tive. The fruit is sometimes badly In-
jured by fruit rot.
Purdue University Head Divorced Atv

Lafayette, Ind.—It is the high priv-
ilege of all to follow individual taste
in tbe matter of religious belief, but
sometimes the result is deplorable In
the extreme. Not all can think alike
as regards the here and the >'ereaft-
er, on this all-important matter of man
and his final destiny, but in spite of
this diversity of opinion all good men
and women will deeply sympathize
with a family where the wife and
mother has deliberately left her home
to follow after a strange god. Such a
regrettable instance has just been
brought to light through the granting
of a divorce to President Wlnthrop K.
Stone, of Purdue university, who is
given the custody of a minor child,
Henry Stone, on the ground of aban-
The course of this tragedy which
has brought deep sorrow to the Stone
family is told in a pathetic story
dating back three years, when a class

came a fad in social circles. It was

When last heard from in an authentic
way she was in Germany, but has been
reported since that she has left that
country for Kabakon, a South Sea Is-
land, to join a colony of followers of
the new belief. In the island where
Mrs. Stone is supposed to be its mem-

This colony is one of the queerest

BEST WAY OF
Hens are Best Judsea of Whai
They Need and Should be
Allowed to Help
(By ROBERT S. GRAY.)
A woman of western Pennsylvania
says that many of her young laying
hens died last winter and she attrib
utes the trouble to mixing grit with
the feed as she had been told to do.
There is some difference of opinion
as to feeding grit. It is true that
when bens on a range pick up theli
feed they always get with it a con
siderable amount of grit, but we
doubt whether it is wise to force grit
upon them when in confinement.
If grit is provided in boxes, the
hens will usually use as much as is
necessary for their health, and it ap
pears to us that this is the natural
way of taking grit.
It might be well to mix grit with
the feed If we knew exactly how
much would be needed for the health
of the birds; but as they are the best
judges of this matter we think II
much better to provide grit in boxes
and allw them to help themselves.
WAY OF STORING V/AG0N BOX
217 North Harvey Street
The accompanying Illustration
shows a cheap and handy method of
hoisting and storing the wagon box
from tbe wagon. The construction is
self-explanatory, the position of posts
and other details being varied to suit
Tbe chief advantages of this plan
are that it can be operated by one
person, can be put in at a small coat
and it carries the box up where It wl
be out of the way, r.nL yet ready to
be lowered at any time. The board
slings at the sides of tbe box when
elevated, serve to hold the wagon box
in place, and take the weigL., off the
ropes. The writer, says the Ohio
Farmer, has used this device for
many years, and has found it entirely

Owing to the trouble with his wife
Mr. Stone recently sent his resigna
tion to the trustees of Purdue, but
they unanimously declined to accept
it. He has been a capable head of the
university since 1900.
It was no emotional, impulsive ac-
tion that took Mrs. Stone from her
family. Her course was deliberate,
and she followed it after long reflec-
tion and, apparently, after having
counted the full cost.
Most singular is the story of Mrs.
Stone's fair under the spell of the mys-
terious Yoga cult. Kor years she had
been reading theosophy and kindred
subjects, and was, mildly interested in
them. It was along about this time
that Dr. George Moulton organized in
Lafayette a class in the Yoga philoso-
phy. Many women and some men, in
West Lafayette, tha college town,
joined the class, and it became a great
fad with certain highly educated peo-
ple. Moulton taught that the Yoga phil-
osophy was the religion of the Indian
Yogi, or Soothsayers.
One of the leading features of this
doctrine was that of the "withdrawal,"
or separation from kindred and
friends. It was this feature that at
lpst fastened itself upon Mrs. Stone as
subsequent events showed. Meetings
of Dr. Moulton's class were held in
several homes. Books on the subject
were put in the hands of Mrs. Stone
and other members of the class, and
their interest grew.
Radical and revolutionary as were
the books of the cult, Dr. Moulton
seemed to go still beyond them, and
evolve a Yoga philosophy of his own.
But the members of the class were
warned not to make public any of the
private and secret instructions of how
to send telepathic messages, how to
hypnotize, how to use the key of Kar-
ma Y'oga, and how to heal the sick.
One of the injunctions in this respect
was "Do not become a laughing stock
for your friends by telling them what
you can do or how you do it."
