The Army of the Corn.
Ho! Behold, the summer's promise stands
revealed upon the hills
Bivouacked, an army campeth by the
ever singing rills!
From the shoek-tents (d' the soldiers,
shedding sunlighit bedCk to sun,
Nods the tasseled flag of Plenty-for the
Beason's fight to wo"n1
In the golden glow of morning, see the
Armny rise from Mist
Throwing off Its biaokened mantle,

By 'the pickets that proteot It, stand the
At the bladed horde of loeres, at the
Army's stalwart pridd!
In the hedge rows by the border, skul
the quall, a frightenied brood;
Nut -brown pheasants wate and gather
at the mness tents for thaeir food.
Hbrk! Across the tented vatier comes the
baying of the hound
And the echo of the bugle mdt,1 its quay
er, round on round!
See! The Army wakes, to gutver with the.
zephyr's ebb and flbw!
Now the reveille Is sounded by the
North Wind's lustfy blow.
Ah! It wakens not to qla-ughiter, but to
Peace and Hope and God

BREAKING THE COLT.
Begin Early and Be Very Patient ir a
the Work. F
When a colt is coming two year,

rees and colts, says a writer ir
Farmers' Review. I then train him tc
be guided by the use of lines ruN
through rings low down on a wid( h
strap surcingle, which I use for this s
purpose. I then drive the colt around n
the lot for a short time. When I de
sire the colt to turn pull one line
firmly, at the time te sing the coll b
gently on the oppoel 3 side with u
light whip. I then train him to bacl d
and also to stop by the use. of the
I then hitch the colt in with an old a
steady horse that is not afraid of any
thing. I wish to say that a colt never ti
should be broken with a blind bridle.
Colts that are being broken-should be
permitted to see eterything that is
going on around them. When some. a
thing occurs and the colt sees that the a
mate it is being driven with is in no
way concerned, it quickly gets over
its fright. h
-There is a great difference in breedse
Rs to the readiness with which the
colts become trahned to daily work.
I find the Percheron by all odds theb
easiest horse to train. A Hambleton
Ian, ? think, requires more time and
patience to train, than any other
breed with which I have had experi
ence. The Hlambletonian IS naturally
nervous and skittish. I have broken
and trained a great many of them, but
have never found one that I did notI

nessand good judgment.
Choking of Animals. b
Hardly. a farmer has not had more
or less experience with animals be-: a
Ing choked. This can be remedied to te
a very great extent, or can be re
lieved. While animals will get choked I
once in a while it can be helped. The s
simplest thing to do which may saveh
the life of a valuable animal and will t
not hurt it, is to Insert a piece of corn
mon rubber hose about six feet long
down the cow's neck; perhaps it
would be well to hold the animal's
mouth open with a cord until you a~
strike the apple, or'.whatever it is that b
chokes her. Often the apple is so C
swelled, or so firmly wedged, as to be tl
difficult to stir. Run a buggy whip I
down this rubber pipe. The pipe will n
fit against that apple, se there will be '
no danger of making any hole In the ~
animal's gullet. Press the end of the ~
whip carefully down until it reaches '
the stomach. The gas will escape
quickly through the pipe and the ani- .
mal will be relieved.-Dr. E. E. Tower. ~
Good Hogs Quick Money.
Good hogs are quiecly turned into
money. There is little reason for dis
putting the value of a hog raised for
pork. The boards of trade quote pork, a1
and..that brings the pig into the same
catagory as wheat, which is about tho
samie as money, if it is at a point t
of railroad transportation. The hog is
the 'more a moneymaker because he
s easily reared and within a year
ron birth 1s ready for the market.
I- can make use of a great variety of
ood-and make more meat out of that
Dod than any other animal.
