Why are not farmers the most in-
dependent class of men on earth?
We can live longer on a bushel of
corn, potatoes or apples than a
millionaire can on a bushel ot
dollars. The appetite of an
aristocrat craves for the fruit we
can have with little work and en-
Strawberries (those luscious,
healthgiving beauties) commence to
ripen in the month of May, and can
be raised for 12 rents per <|uart. I
have grown 400 bushels per acre,
though perhaps 'Jf>0 bushels would
be called an average yield. Before
strawberries are gone raspberries
will ripen. They can be grown
rt cents per quart, anil yield
seventy-five bushels per acre
fore raspberries are gone the black-
berry will ripen. 'I he Early
Harvest blackberry will ripen two
weeKs before the other varieties or
the wild ones. Blackberries can be
grown for 9 cnets a quart, 100
bushels to the aere. Before these
are gone grapes will ripen, and on
up to October. During this time
other fruits will ripen—gooseberries,
currants, plums, pears ami the
apple, which itself will supply us
the whole year. What more can
we ask of nature?
To be successful we must read
and attend horticultural meetings
and farmers' institutes. If one
fourth ol our working hours were
devoted to brain work (reading and
finding out what varieties of fruit
are adapted to our soil and how to
cultivate them) they would be
profitably spent. A mistake
grain can be remedied in one season,
but in fruit is a lifetime disappoint-
ment or a lifetime treasure and
Sonic years the producers fail to
realize paying prices, not knowing
where to market. AN e have learned
how to grow small fruits, now we
should stuky where to ship and how
to market. But I predict tliat-
berries will not be a drug in the
market the coming season. The
same may be said of tree fruit, al-
though I never saw a better prospect
for all kinds of tree fruit at this
time ot year—apples, peaches,
plums, pears cherries, mulberries
and grapes. Our fruit market is
empty, and consumers multiplying
faster than producers, and I believe
as men become more civilized and
refined they will consume less meat
and more fruit and vegetables.
To see people eat strawberries, the
first fruit to ripen, reminds me of a
cow or horse turned in on green
pasture after a tough siege of stall-
More painful is the fact that so
many families have not enough
fruit, and labor under the impression
that fruit is a luxury only for the
rich, when, in fact, it is the cheapest
and healthiest diet the farmer can
grow and eat. I cannot withold
my pen as I look over the broad
fields of nature, with the sun pour-
ing down its rays of cheerfulness,
and see the rich, unoccupied land,
which should be made beautiful and
profitable, and so many families
without fruit. Why is it so? Few
farmers provide an ample supply of
what would add so much to their
own and their families' pleasure.
The appetite for fruit is a natural
I low I should love, in this fruit
blessed country, to place at every
housekeeper's disposal a fruit garden
of a size in proportion to her needs.
If I could, I know that my name
would be blessed in every home.
Last, but not least, do not neglect
brain food. Read horticultural and
agricultural reports and instructive
papers, in which is embodied the
accumulated experience, to lead to
success. Jacob Faith, in Smith's

We were called upon last Monday
morning to witness one of the most
loathsome and humiliating spectacle
of our life, i . the remains of Mr.
J. W. Keith who had suddenly and
from causes unknown died in a little
shack on Cleveland avenue. His
body was discovered ou Monday
morning in a sitting posture on the
fioor of his little house, leaning
against a box partially dressed and
one foot bare and a penknife in one
hand hut no marks of violence on
his person. It is believed that the
posture was assumed in trimming
an ingrown nail and that he was.
seized by cramping of the heart
causing death. He had perhaps
been dead 4H hours when discover-
ed. Mr. Keith was an inoffensive,
in l^ooil man hailing from Eldorado,
Kansas, from whence his wife sum-
moned by telegram arrived in
Guthrie this Tuesday morning.
The deceased was a member of the
M. E. church and also of the
Ancient Order of United Workmen,
of which order his widow is the
beneficiary of two-thousand dol-
lars.—West and South.

The American Agriculturist says:
"Those who want to make dairy
cows do their best must, in some
way, provide clover pasture in
summer and clover hay in winter.
The cow is doing hard work when
she converts her food into milk, and
ought not to be required to •hustle'
much for her living. If it takes hi
all day to get three square
she cannot do what she would really
like to do in the milk producing
line, hut when she stands half deep
in fragrant clover and has only to
take a few nips for a 'well-balanced
ration' and then lies down with a
grunt of content anil meditatively
chews her cud, she will do justice
to her pedigree and show what she
was made for. Clover seed is high
and likely to be higher, but clover
seed is the one thing that the pro-
gressive farmer must have, no matter
what it costs. If he grows his own
seed, so much the bet* T, but he
must sow it, if lie his to buy at the
