It is not merely the fact that a million
men are said to be out of work with consequent
loss of time, plaoe and money, that
makes the times seem so tough, but there
are other aggravations superadded, growing
out of the willful neglect of so many, that
make the times seem hard, indeed. If better
times were at hand and good plaoes open

who would betotally unfit to go to work by
reason of the neglect of some infirmity
Whioh totally unfits them to accept a proffered
chance. What better opportunity
could there be to get their physioal condl,tion
in good shape than the enforoed idleness
gives them? To do so is making profit
out or misfortune; not to do so is making
hard times so muoh harder. It is poor loglo

no eoonomy at all to save expense by sacrificing
health. A man wants brawn, muscle
and brain In as nearly a perfect condition as
is possible, to gain a victory in the battle of
life. It is mostly from a beginning in little
things that the greater ones accumulate and
finally overwhelm us. There is hardly one
man who labors with his muscles, from the
skilled mechanic down to those who work
with pick and shovel, but has some bodily
aliment neglected. What costly trifling it is,
looked at from results. For example: the
bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles
are all under constant strain from the
nature and demands of their work. Aches
and pains must ensue. These, neglected,
soon reach the chronic stage of stiffened
limbs from contracted muscles. How many
old mechanics have bent backs and backaches
we know. This is simply a condition

SALT FOB BEES.
It is well known that salt is required
by bees, particularly in spring, before
any honey-flow sets in, and it probably
acts as a mild purgative on their constitution.
It is very desirable that a
few small wooden troughs filled with
brine or, where the atmosphere is not
too dry, a few pieces of rock salt be
kept at every apiary, to enable the
bee? to get the necessary supply
ready and in a clean manner when
they feel inclined for it.?New York

BUILDING A STACK OF CORN FODDER.
Corn fodder may be stacked when
it }>so well cured in the shock that it
will not sweat much in the stack, thus
insuring its keeping sweet. The
amount of sap remaining in the stalk
can be judged by twisting it, and ex
amming the pith, it the loader is so
dry that the leaves break badly, choose
a damp, drizzly or foggy day for
handling it. Otherwise much of the
most nutritious food will be lost, and
the sharp midribs will tear the clothing
to tatters. For hauling from the
field a low wagon is best. Have the
front wheels abont three feet in diameter,
and the hind wheels six inches
larger. The rack may be made with
open spaces between,the boards, but
a tight level floor is best to prevent
waste and for convenience to the
loader in walking and in sliding the
heavy stalks. These should be grasped
by the tops and swung on to the load,
be laid aoross the rack with the stalks
parallel, and the butts all in the same
direction. Unless the fodder is husked
it is too heavy for large loads. Drive
the load so that the tops will be to
ward the stack, and then lift and pull
off the bunches of stalks in the reverse
order from which they were loaded,
avoiding all tangling and confusion.
The middle of the stack or rick must
be kept 10 foil that the outside stalks
will have a steep slope outward and
downward. Top with long straw or
hay. ?New England Homestead.
A HANDY AFPLE-PICKEB.
In the season for picking apples
orchardists will find the illustrated
picker of great service in reaching the
fruit on extended limbs, One man
can stand under a tree and pick nearly
all the fruit from the tree, including
the hardest to get at?that on the
ends of the branches. The frame is
made of heavy wire, or light round
iron, and a sack of heavy cloth sewed
to the frame, leaving the slots at each
end so that an apple will be free to
enter the sack. Then all you have
to do is to push or pull and the apple
drops into the sack. I have one with
a fourteen-foot and another with a
Bix-fooi handle. The wire from A to
B is eight inches wide, from C to D
ten inches. The slots at C and D are
three inches long and an inch wide.
The handle or pole may be of any deaired

don't sell the old hobse.
The following words are from the
Indiana Farmer: Before offering the
old horse for sale, we wish that
farmers would think a little of his
probable fate if he is so unfortunate
as to be sent to the city. The faithful
old animal deserves better fate than
to fall into the hands of some garbage
man or rag dealer, as he is most likely
to do if brought here.
Just now we saw a poor, starved,
bony, superannuated creature, driven
by a ragged old colored man to a
iickety wagon, in which was a load of
some unknown substance, hidden from
view by a large piece of dirty muslin.
The prominent bones of the horse
bore evidence of scant feeding and
iwird treatment. It seems that officers
should interfere with such cases and
clause the ftTiimn.1 t,r? Vm shot, anrl nut
out of the possibslity of such Buttering,
as he will inevitably be subjected
to in such hands. The colored man
bought him because he was diseased,
worn out and cheap. He is not able
to feed him properly and ought not to
have him. The other day such a horse,
because he was too faint and feeble to
pull his load, was beaten and then
knocked down in the street. The
driver was arrested, we believe, and
fined for his cruelty, but the poor
Btarved and beaten horse got but little
comfort out of that fact.
The farmer who has had long and
profitable service from his horses
ought to be willing to give them comfortable
shelter and food after they
are past usefulness till death. If not
able to do that his conscience will snffer
less if he shoots and buries them,
than, for the Bake of a few dollars,
sells them to strangers to be starved
and brutally treated during their few
MERITS AND DEFECTS OF ESSEX SWIXE.
This is one of the oldest English
breeds of swine. Its merits have obtained
for it a well deserved popularity
in this country, as well as in its
native land. The modern Essex breed
is the result of a cross of the original
stock on the Neapolitan. It belongs
to one of the so-called small breeds.
Essex swine are black, or, rather,
ash-black in color; they have a shortdished
face, broad between the eyes,;
erect, thin ears, full jowls, short,

broad, deep and straight, with heavy
hams, bones fine, but sufficiently
strong to support the body; hair fine
and soft, but thin; no bristles; legs
short and fine, but straight and set
wide apart; hoofs erect.
When matured, the improved Essex
will weigh from three to four hundred
pounds. They mature early, are prolific
and possess great vigor of constitution.
They fatten easily, range well
and, pot being troubled with mange
or sun-scald, are a peculiarly valuable
breed for the South. The Essex are
excellent as a cross, being sure to give
quality and early maturity to any
breed. When crossed UDon common
or coarser swine they will improve
them almost beyond recognition. The
objection urged against them is their
tendenoy to fatten .apidly, which
causes the carcasses to lack the desired
proportion of lean meat. This objection
can be largely overcome by limiting
the amount of food and compelling
exercise. Being good grazers,
they should be allowed unrestricted
ran of pasturage and no corn or other
fattening food until it is desired to
finish them off. On the other hand,
their tendency to fatten is a great
recommendation where roasting pigs
are deBired. The meat can be made
fit for pork at any age, from a
month upward. In England these
hogs are marketed in grtat numbers
when from five to eight months old,

Sell off the straw and buy better
and more concentrated food. Better
results in feeding and better manure
will be realized. The rule must not
be adopted as an invariable one, but
its adoption is often valuable.
Kick out the stunted fowls. They
will always be unprofitable, and you
would better eat them now than that
they should eat themselves several
times before spring. May as well put
your feed into hens that will return
eggs for the favor.
When grit is needed, pound up some
glass for the hens, and it will assist
them to grind their food. Do not use
colored glass, however, as it may contain
poisonous matter. You cannot
put your broken glassware, china or
earthenware to better use than to
pound such material for the hens and
they will relish it.
One bushel of potatoes is much like
another bushel, aud so it is with most

and coyly drawn to one side when occasion

of side ringlets from "Madonna

in the veins? Will the "bands" terminate
in the long plaits looped round

A few years ago leather trimmings
were much used on dresses and
jackets, and they are now revived for
our benefit. The prettiest I have yet
seen was a blue serge with a band of
leather about an inch and a half wide

cut out in a trefoil design and the
edges were pinked out round the

The coat to match was trimmed
with similar leather round all the outlineB,
and the novelty of a little square
leather oollar, stamped out round the
edge to match the rest, appeared at
the back. The sleeves were finished
with leather at the wrists, the points
turned upward like those of the
leather on the skirt. A plain^almondcolored
cloth was trimmed in rather
similar fashion with a russet leather
punched out in a design of stars. The
tailor who Bhowed me this dress
begged me, should we select it, to accept
a bit of the leather in order to
take it with me to the bootmaker and
the glover, so as to secure both in
perfect accord with the tint of the
leather on the gown. He also remarked
that the best headgear to accompany
it would be a biscuit-brown

for 800 miles along the eastern

many strange monsters wandered up

Professor Marsh named one the Trioeratops,
which means that it wore
three horns on its face. Its skull was
enormous, measuring in an old individual
seven or eight feet in length,
was somewhat wedge-shaped, and the
back and sides of its neck were protected
by a huge fanlike ruff or projection
of bone, extending from the
skull and forming part of it.
The brain was smaller in proportion
to the size of the 6kull than in

Alaskan Indian Canoes.
In the Sitka distriot the oanoes are
each cut from a single log of wood.
The log is first dressed and hollowed
out, and then steamed and spread
open. Many of the canoes are models
of form. Great care is expended on '
them, and if the maker were paid good
wages their prices would be fabulous.
A good new oanoe able to carry three
men ?and 100 pounds of baggage is
worth $150. An older oanoe of the
same size may be prooured for $70.
Some cost $200 and up to $700. The
Indians have abandoned to a great extent
the old method of oaddlincr the
canoe, and they are furnished with
oars and sail. This is made possible
by having a rigid body, unlike the
bark or skin canoes of other places.?
