TheNew England Farmer advises farm
era not to leave potatoes in the ground
long after they are ready to harvest.
It is cold work handling potatoes after
the ground begins to freeze nights. The
cold and the dirt often make the hands
craok and beoome very sore. Besides,
late digging gives the weeds and grass
a chance to grow, and makes the work
of digging still harder. Some think
the late fall rains injure the quality
of the tubers for eating. However
this may be, there is nothing gained
by^leaving sound potatoes long in the
ground after they are ripe and ready
to dig. When the crop is rotting, how
ever, it is well to leave them undug
till the disease is far enough advanced
so that the unsound can be separated
from the sound ones without difficulty.
Dig in fair weather so that the tubers
will come out clean. Potatoes dug
when the ground is muddy never look
well in the bin, nor are they as salable
in market. If the white grub is very
abundant in the soil, it may be neces
sary to dig to save the crop,even before
the vines are dead.
If potatoes are dug by hand, it is
easior to lift them while the vines are
istill alive Plunging a spading fork
into one side of the hill and prying
with one hand while the vines are grasp
ed by the other, the tubers may be lift
ed almost at a single operation and
shaken upon the surface to dry for
hour or so, before picking and sort
ing, Some farmers make much un
necessary work in harvesting this crop.
They pull the vines, then dig out the
potatoes with hoes or hooks, throwing
them into baskets which are emptied
into a cart or wagon, from which
they are afterwards sorted before put
ting into the cellar. It is better to
sort when picking from the field, and
a fork is far better than a hoe for lift
ing and spreading out the tubers to
When one has a large field that is fair
ly free from rocks and weeds, the dig
ging can be done very rapidly by the
use of a small, double-winged plough,
drawn by a horse, letting the horse,
walk on the row, or better, have two
horses astride the row. Unless there
are pickers enough keep up the team,
1 which is impracticable,the team should
go through the field taking alternate
rows, and after these are
oleaned up, go through again, tak
ing the remaining rows. Farmers
must economize in every way possible
to save labor in producing their crops,
or they will have reason to complain
of "hard times." When the potatoes
are put in the cellar, see that they are
covered from the light, which will turn
the skin green and make the potato bit
ter and practically worthless, except
for planting. One thickness of news
paper, if nothing better can be had, will
shut out the light and keep the tubers
sound. Store in the coolest part of the
cellar where there will be no danger
from freezing. A warm cellar starts
the sprouts too early in the spring.
1 FORAGE CBOPS FOB MILK.
5 From results of experiments obtained
A the Model Dairy Farm of Altens
bourg, in Hungary, Indian corn pro
moted the largest yield of milk, while
sorghum produced that of the richest
quality. The other crops experimented
were beet root, lucern and sanfoin.
The former gave the smallest yield
per day of milk, but the percentage of
solids in it was very high. The per
centage of sugar in the milk obtained
by feeding beet root was higher than
that produced by any of the other
foods. These experiments differ some
what in their results from those made
in our own country. For example,
Indian corn or meal is found to pro
duce a richer quality, of milk but the
superior value of beet root in giving a
larger percentage of sugar in milk, has
long been known among us. W
would like to see a thorough trial of
this root at our several agricultural
college farms alongside of parsnips,
carrots, potatoes and rutabaga fed raw
as well as cooked. Parsnips are highly
esteemed on the Island of Jersey as
forage, giving, as the dairymen con
tend there, an extra quantity and qual
ity of milk from their cows.Z., Ocean

AN IOWA STORY.
This story must be true, as it is
given by Col. Swalm of the Oskaloosa
Herald: A hen, half black Spanish
and half game, has been doing a land
office busmess in Rolla, Mo. She laid
her first egg on the 10th of May, 1886,
and has continued to lay an egg every
day since. She went to setting as
soon as she laid her first egg and is
still on her nest. She comes off every
morning to get water and food, and
then goes back. She has hatched one
egg a day except the three first weeks
of her career. She has now been
laying one year, and is the mother and
hatcher of 856 chickens, one-half pul
lets and the other half roosters.

another, as they passed down the street to

unselfish, every one likes her. And she has
lovely golden hair and pretty eyes. Isn't
it a pity her complexion is so bad it spoilt
her looks. And then she has such dreadful
headaches"! The girls skipped along, but
it happened Edith's mother had heard what
they said. It set her thinking. What could
be done for those headaches and the rough,
muddy complexion, that was such a trial to
hergentle daughter. (She recalled what she

Bogs can count. I knew one that
was employed to bring in the cows to be

stood at the gate to see them pass
through, he found one was missing,
and he started back for it. It was not
there, but seeing atop rail in the fence
broken he suspected that it had gone
over the panel, and he found the cow a
half mile distant in a neighboringfarm.
I knew of another that took his master
to a distant place on the farm where a
horse had broken his leg. I recall
another instance which would be re
markable if animals did not reason and
think. Almost every day a person who
lived in the vicinity of Washington i*ode
into the city, and he always went home
almost helplessly drunk. The horse
knew when his owner was in that con
dition, and ho would get down on his
knees and haunches for him to mount,
and would travel away slowly and stead
ily with his dninken load. If he
chanced to be sober he would not assist
him, but would trot away rapidly with
his rider. My father had a dog that
knew when Saturday came, and he
would go a mile to the creek to meet
him at the hour when he returned home

To those acquainted with our institutions, it is hardlynecessary
to say that the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, with the
branch establishment located at No. 3 New Oxford Street,Londen,
England, have, for many years, enjoyed the distinction of being
the most largely patronized and widely celebrated institutions in
the world for the treatment and cure of those affections which
arisefrom youthful indiscretionsand pernicious, solitarypractices.
We, many years ago, established a special Department for the
treatment of these diseases, under the management of some of
the most skillful physicians and surgeons on our Staff, to order
that all who apply to us might receive all theadvantagesof a full
Council of the most experienced specialists.
We offer no apology for devoting so much
attention to this neglected class of diseases,
believing no condition of humanity is too
wretched to merit the sympathy and best
services of the noble profession to which we
belong. Many who suffer from these terrible
diseases contract them innocently. Why any medical man, intent
on doing good and alleviating suffering, should shun such coses,
we cannot imagine. Why any one should consider it otherwise
than most honorable to cure the worst cases of these diseases,
we cannot understand and yet of all the other maladies which
afflict mankind there is probably ntihe about which physicians
ingeneral practice know so little.
We shall, therefore, continue, as heretofore, to treat with our
best consideration, sympathy, and skill, all applicants whoare suf
fering from any of these delicate diseases.

personal examination of the patient, we claim to possess no
miraculous powers. "We obtain our knowledge of the patient's
disease by the practical application, to the practice of medi
cine, of well-established principles of modern science. And it
is to the accuracy with which this system has endowed us that
we owe our almost world-wide reputation of skillfully treating
lingering or chromo affections. This system of practice, an
the marvelous success which has been attained
through it, demonstrate the fact that diseases
display certain phenomena, which, being sub

and unmistakable data, to guide the judgment

the nature of diseased conditions. The most ample resources
for treating lingering or chromo diseases, and the greatest triii.
