Words of 8ong.
I am very anxious to secure th«
words of an old song which my moth-
er sang, “Welcome to Lafayette." The
following Is the first verse:
Welcome! Welcome, Lafayette,
Thee we never can forget,
Priend of man, we love thee yet,
Friend of liberty!”

great deal of assistance to me in the

To Raise Money for Banquet.
Our class in high school is very
“hard up for money. We are to give
a banquet to the seniors and we only
have 16 cents in the treasury. Can
you please suggest some way for us
to make some money?—H. M.
I am very sorry not to personally be
able to give you the words of the song,
but I haven’t them. The best I can
do Is to lay the question before the

Up^i^ail«Farn,s BP® Mntured Apple Orchards That Have
Neglected for Tears, but Which May, With
Small Investment and Little Work, be
Made to Return Good Income.
(By S. B. HARTMAN.)
The chief difficulty In caring for i
■mall orchard Is the spraying. Fairly
good fruit can be grown without cul-
tivation, if some mulching or manure
la applied, and a home orchard can
often be utilized as a hog pasture
much of the season. The pruning is
not difficult if the trees are not too
badly neglected, and there Is a lati-
tude of time in which to do It, time,
too, when the farm work la not press-
ing; but the spraying, or at least a
part of It, must be done at certain
times, lor a delay of a week will
make a great difference
Two of your husband’s cards are
left when you call upon a couple; a
safe rule Is to remember that one of
his cards is left for each woman and
one for each man. For instance, when
calling upon widow who might be
living with her father or a grown-up
son, a card of your husband's would
be left for her and one for the father
A preacher says that the saddest
hour of the day comes after sunset.
That’s when most# of the vaudeville
■tunts are pulled off.
A Parisian philosopher says that vio-
lent movements produce violent
thoughts. He must have found a slip-
pery sidewalk somewhere.
With only 16 cents In the treasury I
think the seniors stand a very poor
chance of getting anything to eat. You
have asked me a difficult question, for
I do not know what resources you
have for making money or what are
the capabilities of each one. But
where there is a will there is always
a way. I am sure the girls could
have a home delicacy sale on Saturday
afternoon which would be well pat-
ronized, and the boys could sell pop-
corn, peanuts and take orders for all
sorts of odd jobs that only boys can
do. Suppose you write and tell me
what success you have, and I will in
turn tell the department readers.

i m‘xing Jhe materials and a one-horse
I buggy or wagon, to carry the spray
i barrel, can be found on every farm,
and generally there Is a spare home
to draw the outfit. A half-day, or at
most a day, two to four times a year,
will suffice to spray an orchard of
from 25 to 50 trees, according to size.
Spraying must be made a regular
practice. The neglected trees have
probably sheltered Insects and dis-
eases for some years that must be
Bubdued by thorough and regular
spraying. Good Judgment mpst be
used In all the operations. Do not
carry any one operation to excess o.’
to the neglect of others. The trees
are being stimulated along several
lines as pruning, cultivating, fertiliz-
ing and spraying, and each must be
an accompaniment to the others.
Success depends upon many things,
but the first thing Is the man. To
undertake this work in a half-hearted
way will discourage success.

Fruit and foliage are kept free from

fruit before the disease starts.
Insects are destroyed by eating
parts of plants upon which has been
Bprayed a little polaon, or by having
their bodies struck by aome penetrat-
