FAEM A3JI HOUSEHOLD.
THE DEATH O WINTER.
Pierced by the sun's bright arrows,Winter lies
With dabbled robs npon the burred hill-side:
Fast flows the clear cold blood in vain be tries
With cooling breath to check the flowing
He faintly hears the footsteeps of fair Spring
Advancing throng the woodland to the dell.
Anon she stops to hear the waters sing,
And call the flowers, that know her voice
Ab, now she smiles to see the glancing stream
She stirs the dead leaves with her anxious
She stoops to plant the first awakening beam.
And wooes the cold Earth with warm breath
**Ab, gentle mistress, doth thy soul rejoice
To find me thus laid low^ Ho fair thou artl
Let me but hear the music of thy voice
Let me but die upon thy pitying heart.
Soon endeth life for me Thou wilt be blesseed.
The flowering fields, the budding trees be
Grant me the pillow of thy fragrant breast
Then come, oblivion, I no more repine."
ThnB plead the dying Winter. She, the fair,
W hose heart hath love, and only love to
Did quickly lay her full warm bosom bare
For his cold cheek, and fondly whispered,
His cold white lips close to her heart she
Her sighs were mingled with each breath he
And when the strong life faded on her breast
Her own soft tears fell down like heavenly
O ye sweet blossoms of the whispering lea,
Ye fair, frail children of the woodland wide.
Ye are the fruit of that dear love which she
Did give to wounded Winter ere he died.
And some are tinted like her eyes of blue,
Some hold the blush that on her cheek did
Some from her lips have caught their sarlet
But more still keep the whiteness of the snow.

FIKST FLOWERS OF SPRING.
How many know that one's own
home yaid can beeomfe a wondrous
spectacle long before the shady covert
of the woods send forth the wild
bloom So early as the first ot March,
or even the List of February, we wel
come the dainty snowdrop, modestly
dropping its dainty cups, even while
the snow lies heaped in shady nooks
near at hand. Then the crocus, of
various coloia, puts torth a plea for
1 eeogmtion. Among the earliest bloom
ing aneties of those bulbs, are the
small ellow with black stupes, quite
unique. Then the large white, pure
laige \ellow, purple, and a novelty
among them is a ceitum redbloommg
vanety with slendei, pointed flower
cups, distinct tiom the others. Then
comes almost at the same time, cmr
Glory-of the-Snow, .a dainty white and
blue flower only lately introduced.
But chiet among the^e spnng beauties,
and held as pume tavontes, comes the
marvelous bloom of a whole forest of
Scullas Then, indeed, does summer
seem to be upon the way, when the
bees aie wild with delight, and the blue
and white mystery looks up laughing
ly and demands whether theie was
ever anything half so sweet oi winsome,
just at home Bouleis of these are
very attractive for the garden beds, or
set in little groups in the midst of the
bod upon the lawn, where they do quite
as well as elsewhere and are sure to
surpuse somebody. They seed them
selves, and mere ise veiy lapidly, and
will bloom all thiough April and May.
It is well worth the tual of flower

SCIENCE OF CHUJRMXG.
The object to be attained in churn
ing mdk or cream is, by agitation and
oxygenation, to separate the solid fat
from the other solids and fluids of the
cream or milk. The whole milk, prop
erly soured, may be churned. Sweet
cream or sweet milk may be churned
and the pi-oduct will be butter, but the
separation is difficult with sweet cieam,
and still more difficult with sweet milk
than with propeily upened cieam.
In churning the fatty globules are first
broken up, and thus set at libeiry.
They are gatheied together hrst in the
foim of gianules, and if the churning
is still further earned the whole is
gathered into a solid mass The agents
are fuction, heat, and air. The proper
temperatiue tor the churning is about
60 Fahrenheit. Too violent churn
ing produces excessive faction. The
buttci ispiodueed moie speedily, but
at the expense ot the color and flavor.
If the temperature is too low the ex
pansion of the fat globules is not per
fect, and increased fuction is required.
Heie again deficient flavor is the re
sult, and the butter is soft, and wall not
keep. The action of the air upon the
cream in churning is to oxydize the
coats ot the fat globules and thus assist
friction in the sepaiatiou. It makes no
difteicnce what kind of churn is used
so long as air can be admitted. Speed
in churning is easily controlled. It
should be such as to produce butter from
weJI-ripened cream in from twenty-five
to thirty-five minutes.
BUYING FEE D.
Nearly every farmer is buying feeds.
We are now buying back the fertility
we used to sell in the wheat, says Pi ofs.
Henry in Hoaid's Dairymen. Dakota
and Minnesota in the raising and mar
keting of wheat are selling the life of
the soil. In buying the bran we are
getting the greater part of the fertiliz
ing element that goes into the grain.
In it are the phosphorus, potash and
nitrogen. In taking the feed our west
ern neighbors put upon the maiket we
are committing no robbery, for they
are bound to dispose of it. But we can
utilize this feed in a two-fold way.
Feed it to the cows and get the value
of it in butter and cheese, and you will
still have left in the manure 75 per cent
of fertilizing material. It pays to save
all our feitihzers. Unless we do we
must soon follow the example of North
Carolina and buy these in the Chicago
markets. Don't waste time husking
corn for cattle and hogs. The time of
these animals is woith nothing, and
why not let them save you that much
labor? With us at the experiment farm
hogs do better on dry feed and water
CALIFORNIA CROP PROSPECTS.
The latest crop reports are of
the most gratifying character.
The prospect for grain was
never better. Closus.a County alone
to harvast 10,000,000 bushels
of wheata quantity equal to one-thiru
of the entire crop of the State in 1885.
The whole Sacrament Valley promises an
enermous yield. Onthe east side the San.
Joaquin the outlook is also most favor
able. On portions of the west side, and
Southern California, and some of the
southern coast counties comparatively
little grain has been sown this season
owing to the lateness of rains in those
distincts. But those localities have not
usually contributed much to the cereal
sack. The fruit crop is every where
promising, and maj be double that
of the last season. Hops also bid fair
to yield well, No spring ever opened
more auspiciously for California.Sac
IMPROVED WHITE WAS H.
At this season of the year when the
Spring cleaning and brightening up is
an important feature,and there is a sea
sonable demand for white-wash, the
following formula will be found to be
a most superior one: Nice unslacked

boiling water cover it during the pro

and add to it salt one peck, previously
well dissolved in water rice threepounds
boiling hot Spanish whiting one-half
pound, clean, nice glue one pound, pre
viously dissolved by soaking it well
and then hanging it over a slow fire in
a small kettle immersed in a larger one
filled with water now add hot water,
five gallons, to the mixture, stir it well
and let it stand a few days covered from
the dirt. It should be put on hot. For
this purpose it can be kept in a kettle
on a portable furnace. Coloring matter
dissolved in alcohol may be put in and
made of any shade.
W. D. Hoard of the Fort Atkinson,
Wis., Dairyman has an appreciative
Minnesota constituency, largelv for the
reason that he is apt to saj 1 right

Maj Alvord thinks that each man
should breed his own cows. Half is in
the blood of the descent, and half in care
and feed. We cannot mix the blood
and get a satisfactory result. The gen
eral purpose cow is a myth. Milk is
used for sale as food, for cheese and for
butter. It is in the total solids in milk
that its food value consists. The quali
ty of the cheese varies in different breeds.
Generally milk that is good for butter
is good for cheese, For butter it is the
best economy to get the largest amount
of milk. A pound from seven or eight
quarts isbetter than from 11 to 13 quaits
The rhubarb needs division of the
roots and planting in a new place every
few years. Fall is rather the best time
for this, but if done early in the spring,
before growth begins, it will do as well.
The ground should be rich and deep,
and the sets placed with the top of the
buds two inches below the surface.
Plants from seeds differ so much that if
one needs new plants it is best to ob
tain roots ot some of the well known
varieties. Mvatts Linnaeus is large

CURE FOR SNAKE-BITES.
The other day a horse in Irwin Coun

with sweet milk and alum, and then
three bottles of turpentine were heated
and the mouths of the bottle placed in
succession over the part bitten. It is
said that the green poison could be
plainly seen as it was being drawn into
the bottles. The horse recovered*

The United States Commissioner of
Agriculture has just issued a supple

This, with two pietious indexes, com
pletes the whole down to 1885, The
reports contain of course,aiuchdry read

are most valuable. Unfortunatle,the full
set of volumes cannot now be obtained,
and is not found except in libraries
whose owners were careful to have the

sets, including the agricultural matters
in the Patent-Office reports, before the
Department of Agiiculture was organiz

A Frenchman supplies prepared and

The feed is delivered twice a day in
covered barrels hot from steam vats.
It consists of chaffed fodder, roots, pea,

One way to improve the market for
truck and small fruits is to diminish the
quantity and improve the quality of the

not pay better in the end to assort and

the choicest to market?
Green lye is growing in favor among
dairymen as a forage crop for milch

The new- United" States twin-screw
steel cruiser Chicagonow-liesat.Roach's
dock at Chester, on the Delaware, re
ceiving her finishing touches. Her
machinery is in place, and is practically
n running order. The Edison Electric
Company is now putting in an elaborate
and novel electric-light plant, which is
to be so applied as to light every part
of the ship from crow's-nest to keel.
The Chicago was designed throughout
by Theodore D. Wilson, Chief Con
structor of the navy, who also designed
her sister-ships, the Boston and Atlanta.
The Chicago is a naval curiosity. There
is no war ship in the world like her.
She is a steel-armored, coal-protected,
twin-screw vessel, built of milled steel
throughout, and sheathed with woo.d
She will be propelled by four up
right, walking-beam, compound en
gines,with 52-inch stroke, the larger
cylinders being 78 and the smaller ~45
inches in diameter. These engines will
drive steel shafts 13J inches in diame
ter, to which are attached steel-screw
propellers 15J feet in diameter, with a
pitch of 22$ feet. Eighty revolutions a
minute will be made in full speed.
The use of the old-fashioned walk
ing-beam engine for a screw-propeller
war-ship is so unique that it will render
the Chicago a marine curiosity for all
time. But this is a feature to which
a great deal of study was given, and it
was found to be worthy of adoption.
The small merchant marine to which
the country can lay claim has one ves
sel, the Louisiana, plying between New
York and New Orleans, and probably
the speediest merchant vessel carrying
the American flag.in which the walk
ing-beam engines for screw-propellers
are very successful.
The Chicago is 525 feet long on the
water line, has 48 feet beam, is to draw
a little over 20 feet with her armament,
and is of 4,500 tons displacement. She
is divided, by nine complete transverse
bulkheads extending to the gun-deck,
into ten water-tight and independent
compartments. The four amidship com
partments, which are about 135 feet
long, are occupied by the boilers and
machinery. An inner bottom extends
throughout this space, making a double
bottom three and one-half feet deep
amidships, which is divided by the
vertical keel and transverse water
tight frames into fourteen water-tight
cells. Tne machinery and boilers are
covered by protective steel decks one
and one-half inches thick. The top of
this deck is one foot above the load
water-line and is nearly flat
The vessel is provided with a com
plete drainage system, by which in case
of emergency the entire pumping pow
er of the ship about 2,500 tons an hour
can be turned into one of the ten
water-tight compartments. There are
numerous hand-pumps, handy billies,
etc., in addition to the steam pumping
machinery, for additional safety. The
ship will be bark-rigged and will spread
14,880 square feet of canvas, which
will be about two-thirds full sail power.
The sails are auxiliary purely, as the
steam equipment is ample for long voy
ages when haste is necessary. The
coal-bunker capacity 940 tons, which
will drive the vessel 3,000 miles at fif
teen knotsseventeen and one-half
statute milesan hour, or 6,000 miles
at ten knots an hour.
The vessel is provided with heavy col
lision bulkheads and otherwise strength
ened for ramming. The ventilation of
the vessel is very complete and is ac
complished by means of twolarge blow
ers on the berth-deck which circulate
air freely throughout the ship, except
ing the machinery cempartments, which
have a separate system of their own.
The battery will consist of four eight
inch, high powdered, breech-loading
rifles weighing about twelve tons each,
mounted in projecting half-turrets on
the flush spar-deck, the center of tht
trunnions being twenty and one-fourth
feet above water line. The turrets are
unarmored and the guns fight in large
open ports. The only protection for
the men is afforded by shields on the
guns. The train on range of the for
ward guns will be three degrees across
the bow to sixty back of the beam, and
the same range will be given the guns
on the stern quarters. Six breech
loading rifles weighing about four tons
each will be mounted in broadside on
the gun-deck, with a train or range of
60 degrees before and abaft the beam
a complete scope of 120 degrees. This
deck has been arranged and ports are
cut for two additional six-inch rifled
guns, which may be put in place if de
sired at any time.
One six-inch rifled gun will be
mounted in a recessed gun-deck port
on each quarter at the bow, with a
train of 3 degrees across the bow of 52
degrees back of the beam. Two five
inch rifles in recessed ports abaft the
cabin complete the main battery. The
weight of the eight-inch projectile is
250 pounds, the six-inch 100 pounds,
the five-inch 60 pounds. Therewill be,
in addition, six Hotchkiss revolving can
non, mounted in bullet-proof towers.
These guns fire from sixty to eighty
times a minute, end are mainly design

proportions, and is considered a for
midable war-vessel. Her builder, the
late John*Roach, took a special pride
in her, saying she would be the finest
of the navy vessels he had built. Un
fortunately, however, he was compelled
to throw her back upon the Government
in an unfinished state, along with the
steel cruisers Atlanta and Boston.
These ships are now being completed
by the Government.

Recently I bought a
young horse. He was
taken very ill with
Pneumonia. I tried to
think of something to
relieve him. Conclud
ed what was good for
man would be good for
the horse. So I got a
bottle of Piso's Cure
and gave him half of it
through the nostrils.
This helped him, and I
continued giving same
doses night and morn
ing until I had used
two bottles. The horse
has become perfectly
sound. I can recom
mend Piso's Cure for
the horse as well as for
