1 SKILLED FABM LABORERS." ^J|
No idea has done more to repress
farming progress than the idea that a
farm laborer need not be skilledthat
brute strength is the main requisite.
This was never true, and is less so now
than ever before since improved ma
chinery has to be handled. But even
in handling such old-fashioned imple
ments as the ax and the hoe efficiency
depends as much upon skill as upon
muscle. It is by no means the largest
or strongest hired man who will do
most work in a day. And when help
Is hired that is entirely unused to our
methods of farming its inexperience
greatly detracts from its value. The
truth is that farming is a trade that has
to be learned if the workers at it would
be effective. It requires knowledge
and skill in a far larger number of
things than most other kinds of busi
ness. In fact, it is never fully learned
The oldest and most successful farmer
is generally the most ready to learn
something new about his business,and it
isjusually this habit which he has kept up
through his life that has given him suc
cess. That faimer shows only his limit
ed idea of his businesswho thinks that he
knows so much about it that he cannot
Jearn anything more. And, though
skill in faim help is desiiable, it is
sometimes better in rough work to
have a green hand willing to dD as he
is told, and to learn, than one self-con
ceited with the idea that he knows ev
erything already. Much depends up
on employers. Some are themselves
so conceited that few hned men are
.willing to try to leai from them.
This is a disagreeable practice with
colts or horses,which it is almost im
possible to cure. It is not a disease for
fwhich medicines can be applied. When
ahorse or colt has been stabled it has been
recommended to turn them out to pas
ture for five or six months. But this
Will not bieak them of the practice, as
soon as they are idle field oi stable,
it will come back. Youatt says the
only remedy is a muzzle, with bais
across the bottom, sufficiently wide to
enable the animal to pick up its oats or
corn, and pull hia hay, but not to grasp
the edge of the manger. If this is worn
for a considerable peiiod, thehorse may
be tned of attempting that which it
cannot accomplish, and for a while for
get the habit, but in a majoutyof ca^os
the desne for cubbing will return with
the opportunity of gratifying it. There
is no accounting for tho habit. It is
sometimes caused by imitation,but more
frequently by idleness and restlessness.
Spirited horses want to be alv. ays doing
gomething. It is said that is sometimes
contracted when groomirg the colt or
horse, feeling so good he catches hold
of the manger with his teeth.
FATTEN THE HOGS.
The following from an. Iowa farmer ap
plies toMinnesota,Dakota or Wisconsin,
as well: The hogs of Iowa is healthy now.
.They may not be three months hence.
The new corn is nearly ready to be fed to
them. It will never bo used to more
profit than when fed to hogs, commen
cing just as it begins to glaze. Then they
use to profit both ears and stalk. This is
probably destined to be the red letter
year for hogs. Let farmers make most
of it. If it is thought more profitable
the ears can be gathered and the stalks
cut and shocked. But feed the hogs.
One bushel of corn in August and Sept
ember will make as much pork as two
will in December and January. When
feeding be sure that they have a plenty
of pure, cool water and comfortable
sleeping places. Liberal feeding will
not in the least bung on the cholera.
The cholera seed has to be theie as
much to produce choleia as it does seed
to produce a crop of corn. Keep your
hogs as much as possible from all other
hogs, and especially from stray dog8.
METHODS OF FEEDING MEAT.
It i3 universally conceded among poul
try raisers in our country that a supply
of meat is an absolute necessity to lay
ing hens.says a writer in the New Eng
land Faimer, but as to methods oi meet
ing this need diversities of opinion are
numerous. But not to expatiate upon
the different modes in which meat is fed
to hens, I will buefly state my opinions
ion the subject,giving the method which
iln my experience, has proved itself most
satisfactory and profitable.
In the summer, when hens are given
their fieedom in roaming about they
will obtain a sufficient quantity of in
jects, worms, etc., to supplvJfieir want
of nimal food. But in the^rinter, as
they have no such oppoitunities, the
continuation of their animal diet is de
pendent upon the owner. The best me
thod of supplying hens with a meat diet
is to obtain a beef creature's head,
which can be purchased for 10 or 15
cents from any butcher,and two or three
times a week, with an old ax, a part of
it should be chopped up for them. As
bone is also a necessity to hens, when
this head is chopped-up bone and flesh
together,hens receive two veiy essential
elements of their necessary diet. After
the requisite supply of meat is chopped
^off, the head should be allowed to remain
in a convenient corner in the hen house,
tthat the fowls may have an opportun
ity to pick it over and devour the parti
cles of bone and meat which remain,
thus affording them considerable exer
1 THE UNPOPULAR KECCHEK. *^g$g
Dear old kitchen! We see you de
inominated unpopularwhileA every
wise house-builder exercises his chief
skill to make you convenient and every
where are yen recognized as a house
jhold necessity and from you proceeds
jail the tbota viands, puddings and
pies. Why then so unpopular? Surely
from every direction comes the call
for kitchen help. While many needy
women seek work in the shop or facto
ry where remuneration is scarcely suf
ficient to meet daily needs, scorn the
idea of becoming the kitchen domestic.
In olden times families in need of
help were not perplexed, for an appli
cation to some neighbor would secure
a daughter who would work with right
good will andlost no social advantages
by doing service. J we review the
pros and cons of domestic life we can
but admit that with the luxurious living
and fashionable habits and the deep
social gulf between the daughters of
the family and the servants a quick so
lution is formed.
When lack of help or choice brings
the American housewife into the kitch
en it doesn't seem to deteriorate her
manners or morals or social standing
and why should the housemaid be less
favored simply because a just Provi
dence placed her in need of earning her
own pecuniary means. Housekeeping
duties should be-as familiar to every girl
as her native language and taking part
in their execution from childhood up
better prepares one than an elementary
school training. When eminently fitted
home help is placed upon a proper so
cial standing one ameliorating actr in
the life of working women will be
achieved and one grand Ptep taken to
ward supplying the demand of kitchen
GERMAN AGRICULTURL SCHOOL^ A
Germany makes a good showing in
the provisions made for the dissemina
tion of agricultural knowledge. A glance
at the following statistics will show
how thorough are the means of obtain
ing this knowledge. Prussia has four
higher agricultural colleges with some
eighty professorships she has more than
forty lesser schools, all having model
lainis she has five special schools for
the cultivation of meadows and the
scientific studies of methods of iiliga
tion she has one special school for the
teaching of those who desire to reclaim
swamp land she has two special schools
for the teaching of those who intend to
grow industrial nurseries, she has a
school for teaching horseshoeing, one
for teaching silk laismg, one for the
laising of bees, and one teaching the
cultivation of fish Besides all these she
has twenty special schools for the educa
tion of gardeneis and fifteen schools for
the training of those who are to culti
vate the grape.
The example of Prussia has been
imitated by the other German states.
The little kingdom of Bravaria, scarce
ly larger than Massachusetts,
has twenty-six agiicultural colleges
leges, besides more than 200 agricultu
ral associations. Wurtemburg,stillsmall
er in area, has sixteen colleges and sev
enty-six associations. Baden, with a
population of only a million, has four
teen agricnlturarcolleges, besides four
schools of gardening and forestry. Sax-
ony,^ with its dense population of two
million, compacted into a space hardly
larger than two Amencan counties, has
four higher, and twenty agricultural
schools, besides a vetermaiy college and
a department of agriculture with twen
ty professois at the University of Leip
sic. Saxe Weimer, with a population
of no more than 230,000 souls has
three agiicultural colleges, besides- an
agricultural department with fifteen
piofessorships at the University of
In connection with this it i3 stated
that the average crop per acre in Ger
many is steadily growing more. The
contrast between this country and Ger
many in the matter of facilities for ag
ricultural education is marked, and not
at all flattering to our pude. May not
the fact that the average yield per acre
of our staple crops diminish year by
year be partially attributable to the lack
of knowledge of their business on the
part of so many of our farmers.
A DOCTOR'S METHOD.
It has been the practice of a Haitfoid
physician, who has laised quite a fam
ily of children and never lost one, to
restrict their diet, all through the years
of early childhood to one dish. Until
they reach the age of four years they
are kept exclusively on bread and milk.
Of that wholesome and substantial nour
ishment they have enough and only
enough. They have not been permitted
to eat, even of bread and milk, too
This method may prove to be, on ex
amination, an excellent one. It is
known that milk, the main pait of the
dish, supplies, more than almost any
other food, the elements needed for
healthy growth. Bread, if well made,
should be another staple article for aid
ing the growth of blood, brain, bone
and muscle. Doubtless it would still
better answer that purpose if it were
made of unbolted flour, like "Graham
bread," which contains some of the
sweet and nutritious (or at least bene
ficial)properties of the wheat that in
the superfine modern milling processes
are lost, though the flour is finer and
whiter. But, with average good bread,
this experiment seems to have "panned
out" well, in the case of this considera
ble family of children. *iw

The Sfmplon Railway.
The commission appointed to Investi
gate the project of theSimplon Railway
estimate that the line from Yiege to the
a distance of fifteen
and a half miles, will cost in round
figures 2,100,000 if the tunnel he for
a single line only and 2,500,00,0 if
the tunnel be for a double line. These
estimates include the approaches to the
tunnel, the custom-house buildings at
Viege thirteen locomotives, estimated
at 2,800 each and a special reserve
fund for unforeseen difficulties which
might arise consequence of the high
temperature in the tunnel during con
struction. But the estimates do not
include the cost of raising capital and
paying interest during construction.
The commission recommend as a suit
able section for the tunnel: For a
single line21 feet high and 18 feet
widej for a double line27 feet wide,
the cross-sectional areas being 350
square feet and 450 square feet respec
tively. It is estimated that six years
will be required for the construction of
the"tunnel if no"] unforeseen difficulties
occur, but if the latter should be the
case the commission do not think that
the time would exceed eight and a half
years.Industries. & ^JSSSSSS,

In April, 1861, Gen. Cox and Gen.
Garfield were members of the Ohio Sen
ate and were lodging together. The
day that Fort Sumter was fired on the
Senate was in session when a member
came from the lobby in an excited
manner, and, catching the Chairman's
eje, exclaimed, "Mr. President, the
telegraph announces that the Secession
ists are bombarding Fort Sumter."
There was a solemn and painful hush,
broken a moment by a woman's
shrill voice from the spectators' seats,
crying, "Glory to God." This was the
voice of Abby Kelly Foster, a radical
friend of the slave, who believed that
only through blood could his freedom
be won, and she shouted the fierce cry

To Scare Away Snakes.
A gentIeman*who recently returned
from the Western coast of Africa tells
how natives provide against the dangers
of venomous snakes which abound in
those regions&ll'The Africans on the
coast,*' he said, "are far more intelligen
than those in the interior^Just south
of the Republic of Liberia there is a
large swampy region which extends for
hundreds of miles into the interior and
for many miles along the eoast. When
ever it is deemed necessary to penetrate
this vast morass, which abounds in
snakes, the natives simply rub the soles
of thoir feet with garlic and oil. The
scent of the garlic is too much for the
delicate stomaeh of the reptiles, and
they crawl away as fast as they are
able. This insures almost absolute
safety. The boa-constrictor even
hesitates to attack a man smelling of
this odoriferous vegetable. Another
method employed hy the natives when
they wish to sit to rest is to swish the
air with rods. The peculiar noise of
the rod seems to inspire the serpents
with terror for they hasten away out
Tricks of the Italian Milkman
I noticed for some days that my milk
was very, very thin. I had stood by
whilst hfwas milked what, then, could
be the cause? Was it that the cows
drank too much water? I would have
been compelled to adopt this solution
but for a discovery that soon happened
When I came across my cowman the
second or third evening he was milking
for an Italian, and I was surprised
when I saw this latter suddenly step up
to the cowman and squeeze him by the
arm. As surprising as was this action,
however, the result was still more so
a stream of water was ejected from the
cowman's sleeve, and I then understood
how milk can be watered before one's
very eyes without one's detecting it. I
happened to mention this incident to
the American Consul, and he assured
me the trick was quite common. A
bag of water is kept under the coat and
let down into the cup through a rubber
tube in the sleeve. When detected, a
shrug of the shoulders, a "Santa Maria,
what difference?" and pure milk for
the sharp eye when not detected, he
laughs in his sleeve as he lets the water
down through his sleeve and sells it to
you at six cents a quartBorne Letter.
