CHEAP GATE FOR FARM.
Kasy to Mako and Satisfactory In
I Bend you a drawing of a cheap
farm gate I And to be easily made
and satisfactory in every way. I have
•everal lueh gates on my farm and
have used one for eight years. The
frame is made of 2 by 4 inch scant-
lings. morticed togetLer. The brace
Is of the same material. My gates are
strung with barbed wire, but woven
v/lre could be used equally well. 1
make my own gates. The usual length
is 14 fefet. A gate of this le. ’*h costs
SI.50, including the hinges, ..esldea
the making. Gate pc. s will not heavo
or tip if set four feet In the ground

and a piece of plank is spiked on each
side as shown in the drawing. I
always set gate posts and end fence
posts in this way. J. H.
F. C.—I have a pasture infested
with Ox-Eye Daisy, and I am now
mowing them all down before they
ripen. Do you think this will eradi-
cate the post? Tho Ox-Kye Daisy is
not a native here, but has come, I
am informed, from manure from cab
tie fed upon Imported hay.
Mowing tho Ox-Eye Daisy before
tho seeds are ripened will prevent
the crop of seedlings for that year,
but the plant is a perennial and' the
roots will produce new plants and
new flowers another year. However,
it does not root deeply. Tho best
plan for clearing infested land Is to
break it up nnd seed down to clover.
In this way the old plants are de-
nt roye-.l and any young plants from
reed which should flower the second
yenr, will be cut with both the first
and second crops of clover before the
seeds are ripe. Then, when the clo-
ver sod Is plowed down, the Ox-Eye
Daisy plants will be killed and tho
land be clean.
Ants In a House.
M. L. A. would like to know what
Is good to prevent ants staying
around the place.
When ants appear In a house, ths
first effort should be made to dis-
cover where their nest is generally
inside a wall or beneath a floor or
some object close outside the build-
ing. If the nest can be found. It
should be drenched with boiling wa-
tci; out of doors bisulphide of carbon
lias been used with success, a spoon-
ful being thrown into the hole which
is then plugged with a little clod of
earth. If the nest cannot bo located,
ns many Insects as possible should tie
destroyed. For this, small pieces of
sponge nre moistened with water
containing some sugar and n little
vinegar or borax and placed In t’e
spots frequented by the ants. Tho
ants will cnllret on tho sponsres.

Coal Ashes for Grass Land.
J. V. D —Are hnrd or soft coni
ashes a proper fertilizer for grass
lands? Wood ashes are frequently
used by formers, but no coal ashes arc
A«br>s from either hard or soft coal
are of lltt’e or t:o value to gm <

highly useful on ernss land nnd may

•arbor* Lika Summer
The man who generally shares him-
self and who only patronizes a barber
•hop when be oversleeps himself in
the morning was growling about hav-
ing to wait so long. “Well, you know
our busy season is coming on now,”
apologized the barber. “Tour busy
season?” snorted the impatient man in
the chair. “I should think that as soon !
as hot weather set in, and people be- !
gan to . leave town, your business
would fall off.” “That’s where you
are mistaken,” remarked the barber.
"You don’t see any vacant chairs, do
you? Suppose some of our regular
customers go away for the summer.
We don’t miss ’em. You know the
average man is satisfied to get shaved
every other day, and that holds good
until the real hot weather sets In.
Then he begins to feel dirty unless he
1s shaved every day—besides which
the beard grows faster In hot weather.
The consequence is that instead of get-
ting shaved every other day, most of
our regular customers now’ come in
every day, and you can see how that
booms business.”—Philadelphia Rec-
A bachelor one day set the table in
his lonely abode with plates for him-
self and an imaginary wife and five
children. He sat down to dine, and
as he helped himself to food he put
the same quantity on each of the other
plates, and surveyed the prospect, at
the same time computing the cost. He
is still a bachelor.—Salt Fork Banner.

Settled the Case With Her.
Many great discoveries have been
made by accident and things better
than gold mines Lave been found in
this way, for example when even the
accidental discovery that coffee is the
real cause of one’s sickness proves of
most tremendous value because it lo-'
cates the cause and the person has
then a chance to get well.
"For over 25 years,” says a Missouri
woman, "I suffered untold agonies in
my stomach and even the best phy-
sicians disagreed as to the cause with-
out giving me any permanent help,
different ones saying it was gastritis,
Indigestion, neuralgia, etc., so I
dragged along from year lo year, al-
ways half sick, until liually I gave up
p.ll hopes of ever being well again.
"When taking dinner with a friend
one day she said she had a new drink
which-turned out to be Postum and
I liked It so well I told her I thought
1 would stop coffee for awhile and uso
it, which I did.
"So for three months we had Pos-
tuni in place of coffee without ever
having one of my old spells but was
always healthy and vigorous.
"Husband kept saying he wns con-
vinced it was coffee that caurcd those
spells, but even then I wouldn’t be-
lieve it until one day we got out of
Postum nnd ns we lived two miles
from town i thought to uso the coffee
we had In the house.
"The resuU of a week's use of tof-
fee again was that I hail another ter-
rible spell of agony and distress, prov-
Irg that It was tho coffee and nothing
else. That settled it nnd I caid good
bye to Coffee forever and since then
Postum alone has bcou our hot meal-
"My friends all say I am looking
worlds better and my complexion is
much improved. All the other mem-
bers of our family havo been benefit-
ed, too. by Postum in plate of the old
drirlt, coffee." Name given by Postum
Co.. Hattie Creek, Mich.
Ton days trial of Postum In place of
coffp.' or ton is (he wise thing for
every coffee drinker. Such u trial
tells the exact truth often where cot-
(oo is not suspected.
