l.ato Seeil When-..
Wheat that is seeded late will seldom
be attacked by the Hessian fly. Ono
difficulty with wheat is the liability
of being thrown out by frost in the
spring, but when such is the case the
cause may be due to lack of proper
drainage. When a field has been prop
erly tilled there will be but little lia
bility of wheat being injured by alter
nate freezing and thawing.
Soil for Forcing Crop?.
Soil for crops under glass is the same
as that in the field. It is merely a part
of the field which has been, covered
with glass, and its superior mechani
cal condition is owing to extremely
high manuring, which with the decay
pf plant roots renders the texture very
loose ?nd light. Fresh land, however,
may be used at once for greenhouse
crops, and such soil is usually free
from blights and disease germs for a
year or two. The soil is manured and
forked over before every crop.
Food for Horses.
Some horses will eat at all times
and consume almost any quantity of
food without appearing to improve in
condition, although they may not be
doing much work. Horses differ, and
what ls best for one may not give as
good results with others. Good groom
ing is an important master, but there
is not as a rule sufficient variety in
the food of horses. While oats will
continue to be a standard food for
horses, yet a small allowance of lin
seed meal and corn fodder will also
be relished and give excellent results.
Hay and fodder win prove superior to
Ono Way to Koop Cabbages.
An excellent way to keep cabbages
is to pull them up and put them close
together, roots in the ground, and
cover them, so as to protect them
against rain,' first placing salt hay or
straw over the heads. By this plan
the cabbages will keep until late in the
spring, as the stalks will take root and
throw out sprouts or greens, after the
heads are gone. By burying the heads
with the roots up the frost prevents
their use, and when the frost leaves
then the ground is damp and the heads
rot It will be found of advantage to
use the stalks in the manner stated,
if for no other purpose than to secure
tue early greens.
There is no one point in poultry rais
ing which requires more consideration
than the house-especially that por
tion where the fowls stay during in
clement weather. The roosting room
need not be large, because the fowls
will huddle together any way, and the
small houses are not so hard to keep
warm. The scratching shed sLould
be both large and cheerful, so that
the fowls will be contented to remain
there and hustle all day. Clean straw
or leaves should be kept on the floor
and all grain should be raned into it.
It ls a very good plan to scatter the
grain in the evening and if the weath
er will permit, leave open the small
door, thus letting the fowis begin the
work scratching as soon as lt be
comes sufficiently light.
tn selecting grain do not forget that
whole oats will give the best results.
An occasional change will be relished;
but the principal food should be oats.
TJnthreshed oats thrown into the
scratching shed will furnish exercise
for the fowls. Look over the houses
carefully ari see if the walls and roof
are tight and see that the floors are
kept clean.-Home and Farm.
Pick Oat the Best.
A saving of dollars in the purchase
of breeding stock is often false econ
omy, us this often means a lower grade
of stoclc The higher priced birds aro
often the cheaper in the long run and
are much the better investment. There
are, of course, exceptions, but it usu
ally pays to buy the best, if you are
going to raise poultry for market or
for eggs, for good layers are usually
the descendants of good layers.
It will be noticed that even under
very unfavorable circumstances a few
bens in the flock will lay, while the
others seem to live for no other pur
no?e, apparently, than to eat.
' The hens that lay the best should
be placed by themselves during the
breeding season, and made the founda
tion of the future flock. By forethought
and persistently following this plan,
the laying habit may be so fixed in a
flock in a few generations as to al
most double the egg yield.
One farmer built up his egg record
from an average of 86 eggs per hen
the first year to 179, then to 186, then
195, and his last year's record was
198. His method has been the simple
one of picking out the earliest and
best layers to breed from.-Poultry
The Farm Repair Shop.
I often wonder how I got along with
out a repair shop. The building need
not be extensive, but tight and warm.
One end should be rigged up for black
smithing. Build a hearth of stone and
ordinary clay mortar, with a good
sized flue, about nine bricks to the
round. An opening should be left at
the proper pla^e for the admissiez of
a five or six-inch stove pipe. Procure
a blower or bellows, an anvil, a drill
press, a vise, some dies and tops, one
fourth to five-eighths inch, for cut
ting thread, a hammer, tongs and two
or three sizes of heading tools. Steel
punches for hot iron are also neces
sary, but these can'be made.
After some experience, many other
tools can be made that come handy.
Much of the equipment mentioned can
often be gotten second-hand from ma
chinists or blacksmiths. Collect all
kinds of scrap iron, bolts, old horse
shoes, etc., from about the farm. Much
useful iron may often be gotten for
a trifle at public sales. Old horse
shoes welded together and worked out
are very useful for making nails, riv
ets, links for chains, etc. I have been
using for several years a heavy farm
-chain made entirely from old horse
shoes. As to the actual work in this
line, many valuable hints may be got
ten from a good natured blacksmith.
One may need instruction particularly
on the working and tempering of steel.
For a time the novice may be dis
couraged by his seeming awkward
ness, but after he gets the set of his
hammer and the hang of his tongs,
some experience in welding, etc., there
will be little repairing that need be
taken away from the farm.
Put in the other end of the build
ing a bench or table Provide a cross
cut handsaw, nice teeth to the inch,
a square, a smoothing, a jack and a
fore plane, a brace with at least seven
bits differing in size one-eighth inch,
th?e or four sizes of chisels, a draw
ing knife, miter square and a hand ax
or bench hatchet. A supply of d??Ti?r
ont siztd nails snd wood screws. Thia
will equip the wood working encl of
the shop for all ordinary repairing,
hauy new implements can be made
and ironed complete later. Now ge;
or make a sewing or sadler's horse,
procuro some needles, wa?: and thread,
harness rivets, etc. Put un a stove,
fix up the harness ana gather the
plows, harrows und other implements

Secrets of (ho I>nlrv.
There are some secrets which are no
secrets, and the experience of years
nas shown me that the art of butter
making may be known and read of all
faithful and persistent men. A few
of the points that every one who as
pires to good butter making must ob
serve I believe to be as follows:
The man or woman who sets out to
be a dairyman must love his work.
Unless he does failure lies just before
There must be thc essentials of a
good cow in every individual of thc
dairy. No man can succeed with poor
cows, any more than a carpenter can
do his nest with wornout, rusty and
Good water and plenty of it must
be available. Impure water has more
to do with our failures than most of
us are inclined to admit. Roily, stagj
nant or bacterial water never shoula
be tolerated in the dairy. This applies
to the source of supply in the pasture
just as much as that used in washing
the butter. Wc might better be to the
expense of drilling a well ar>d putting
up a windmill than to attempt to get
along in the dairy room without pure
Every man, woman and child who
has anything to do with thc work of
butter making, from cow to package,
should be cleanly and neat. Unclean
liness is the rock upon which thou
sands go down. It is possible to do
something in a slovenly manner and
yet succeed fairly well. This is not
true of butter malling. Every pail,
can, churn, ladle, r-ackage, cloth and
worker must be scrupulously tree from
anything which will impart a taint to
the finished product.
The hands especially must be clean.
It does not seem as if it should be
necessary to sneak of this, and yet
it is not a week ago that I saw a man
who would resent it quickly if I told
him he was not neat sit down to his
cow, milk on his hands, and wet thc
teats of a fine Jersey before he began
to take her mess into the pail.
We look to the Danish people for
our pattern of cleanliness, and well we
may, for if there bc any secret with
them it is the secret of neatness. Cli
mate, pasturage, water, care, all pass
for nothing without cleanliness.
Finally, the care given the cow large
ly determines the quality of the butter
made. Good food, cleanly quarters,
kindness, freedom from all that might
give the cow discomfort, these all en
ter In to bring about success or fail
ure in butter.making.
Many other things have a bearing on
the art of butter making. They may
be said to be adjuncts and not abso
sute essentials. The principles in
volved aro not many, but they are in
valuable. They must be taken into
account by all who would win in the
beautiful science of good butter mak
ing.-E. L. Vincent, in American Cul
Sloriii<; Celery for Winter'.
When cold weather comes celery
should be removed to the cellar. In
case there is not room m the cellar
let a space be cleared and leveled in
the garden and boards set up about
it. The space between the boards
should be subdivided by other boards
set two feet apart. The bunches
should then be taken up with a spade,
roots and all, and all the dirt allowed
to remain that will cling to the roots.
Set the plants close together in the
space until they fill it completely and
snugly, then cover with boards and
over that throw a pile of straw. Water
occasionally, but not by sprinkling
over thc tops of the celery, as this
will cause it to rot. Usc a tin spout
or iron pipe an inch in diameter. Set
the lower end of the pipe among the
roots, place a funnel into the other
end and then pour the water into it.
This gives abundant moisture to the
roots and thc tops are kept dry. When
boxes of celery are exposed in the mar
ket for sale it may be kept fresh and
moist by laying wet gunny sack on the
box. The plants absorb the water
from the wet cloth and yet do not be
come wet enough to cause it to rot
It seems that very few dealers and
grocers know of this simple plan to
keep their celery attractive and crisp.
If thc celery is taken into the cel
lar, build an inc'osure as described
foi* outdoors, deposit a layer of rich
dirt within, set the plants out just
as ii" they were outdoors and water oc
casionally as described above. Celery
put away in this manner will last all
winter and grow continually. It will
be white and tender until late in
spring, and even until early summer,
and the last will be found to be sweet
and crisp. A good plan in using cel
ery for home consumption is to break
off a single stalk at a time. Thus the
heart remains alive and new shoots
will constantly appear through the
winter. A space two yards square
will be sufficient to supply a family
with celery all winter if this plan is
followed and care is used to prepare
the plant for continued growth. These
outshoots are thc daintiest and crisp
est sort imaginable and they will grow
with remarkable rapidity.
In growing celery I have found it
profitable to mulch between the rows
with coarse barnyard manure. This
is not so much for the purpose of se
curing thc fertilizing matcial as to
between thc rows to prevent the es
cape of moisture. Try this method
of mulching your celery rows, and do
not be afraid of betting the manure
too thick. Do not let it come in con- .
tact with the celery, but pack it "in
compactly all over the space between
Celery set cut as late as the middle
of August will grow to maturity be
fore freezing weather. Frost does
not injure celery, indeed it seems to
enliven it and cause it to grow faster
than before. It is suggested that un
less the plants are unusually stocky
when they are set out. fncy should be
pinched off just above the heart. The
leaves only should be taken off the
young plants. This serves to concen
trate the vigor of the plant tn ike
roots and heart as well as causing the
bum... to grow broader and thicken

1 he Art ot Seasoning:.
The cook who has mastered the sub
ect of seasonings is qualified to rank
s an expert. Poorly seasoned food ru
ns the meal, and in the long run ruins
he digestion. Over-seasoning is the
ule rather than the exception, and
iften the most delicate of fuod ma
erials are so overwhelmed by heavy
easoning as to lose their individual
lavors. The reason salt, pepper and
pices are added to certain dishes is
hat the salt, the pepper or the spices
nay serve thc purpose of bringing out
he flavors of the food, not that of
;iving the taste of the seasoning to
t. When salt is put into the water
n which vegetables are boiled it is
vith the idea that the vegetable tissues
viii break down less quickly in salt
vater than in fresh and that the flavor
s not therefore so likely to pass in
team. But the general thought in us
ng salt is that it is able to bring out
he flavoring of the food. Next to salt,
lugar deserves to rank as an agent
br developing flavors/ and like salt
ts loo plentiful usc may completely
lisguise the real charm of delicate
oods. In no department of cooking
ihouid the mixtures of seasonings and
heir proper use be so carefully stud
ed as in salad making. When proper
y blended and judiciously used, the
reasonings are the making of the sal
id, while a predominance of some
?eavy seasoning may spoil the salad
md cast a gloom over the dinner. Not
mly should seasonings always be se
eded with an eye to the food they are
o improve, but also with a thought
>f their effect upon one another; they
?hould be in harmony or they should
)e the complement of each other. The
irder in which they enter the dish is
ilso Important For instance, in the
linglc case of combining oil, vinegar,
tepper and salt for salad, the salt
ihouid always dissolve in the oil ra
.her than in the vinegar, since that

SOME AGED ANIMALS.
Those Who Have an Easy Life Live
In the vicinity of Paris a honx, for
old domestic animals was establisher.
some time ago, and among the presea
Inmates, are a mule seventy-two years
old, a cow thirty-six and a pig twenty
five years old.
It ls claimed that domestic animals
.which lead an easy life are likely to
live far beyond the average age if
properly cared for. Many birds cer
tainly attain an extraordinary age.
^Eagles, ravens and parrots, frequently
liye a hundred years, and pelicans
probably live as long, for it is record
ed that one of these birds was placed
?n the Amsterdam zoological garden
some time before 1792 and was still
there in 1870. This pelican, too, was
at least four or five years old when it
was placed in the garden.
Eels are also long lived. Professor
B?chner tells of one which was kept
.for twenty-six years in a pond at Thien
gen, in which il was placed at thc agc
of eight years. It attained a length of
nearly five feet and its favorite haunt
was in the current that flowed into thc
pond. AU authorities agree that do
mestic animais which are obliged to
do a good deal of work do not live so
?ong as those which lead a placid life.

The Beet Segar Industry.
A most important article giving
Messrs. Oxnnrd's and Cutting's views
on the beet sugar industry In this
country appeared on the editorial page
of the New York Evening Post of De
cember 12 last, and as every house
hold in the land is interested In sugar
the article will be of universal interest.
THE BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY.
The Evening Post bids the heartiest
welcome to every American industry
that can stand on Its own bot'.om and
make Its way without leaning on the
poor rates. Among these self-support
ing industries we are glad to know, ia
the production of beet sugar. At all
events, lt was such two years ago. We
publish elsewhere a lotter written In
1899, and signed by Mr. Oxnard and
Mr. Cutting, the chiefs of this Indus
try on the eastern side of the Rocky
Mountains, showing that this was the
happy condition of the trade at that
time. If parties masquerading as beet
sugar producers are besieging the
President and Congress at this mo
ment, and pretending that they will be
ruined If Cuban sugar Is admitted for
six months at half the present rates of
duty their false pretences ought to be
The letter of Messrs. Oxnard and
Cutting war. probably written for the
purpose of inducing the fanners of the
Mississippi Valley to go mere largely
into the cultivation of beets for tba
sugar factories. This was i laudable
motive for telling the truth and show
ing tho large profits which awaited
both the ht ?t grower aud the manufac
turer If the Industry were persever
ingly and intelligently prosecuted. To
This end it was pointed out that farm
ers could clear $05 per acre by culti
vating beets, and might even make
$100. But in order to assure the culti
vator that he would not be exposed to
reveries by possible changes In the
tariff, they proceeded to show that tho
industry stood In no need of protection.
The beet sugar industry, these gen
tlemen say, "stands on as firm a basia
as any business in the country." They
point out the fact-a very Important
one-that their product comes out ns a
finished article, refined and granulated.
It ls not, like cane sugar grown in the
West India Islands, a black and offen
sive paste, which must be carried in
wagons to the seaboard and thence by
ships to the United States, where, af
ter another handling, it is put through
a costly refinery, and then shipped by
rail to the consumer, who may possi
bly be In Nebraska, alongside a beet
sugar factory, which turns out the re
fined and granulated article at one fell
swoop. Indeed, the advantages of the
producer of beet sugar for supplying
the domestic consumption are very
great. We have no doubt that Messrs.
Oxnard and Cutting are within bounds
when they say that "sugar can be pro
duced here cheaper than It can be In
Europe." The reasons for this are
"The sugar industry is, after all,
merely an agricultural one. We can
undersell Europe in all other crops,
and sugar is no exception."
It follows as naturally as the making
of flour from whear. If We cnn pro
duce wheat cheaper than Europe, then
naturally we car. .-educe Hour cheap
er, as we do.
But the writers of the letter do not
depend upon a-priori reasoning to prove
that they can make sugar at a profit
without tariff protection. They point
lo the fact that under the McKinley
tariff of 1S?0? wit en sugar was free of
duty. the~prlee of the article was" four
cents per pound. Yet a net profit of $3
per ton was made by the beet sugar
factories under those conditions, not
counting any bounty on the home \-ro
ductiou of sugar. They boast that
they made this profit while working
nuder absolute free trade, and they
have a right to be proud of this result
of their skill and industry. Many
beet sugar factories had been started
in bygone years, back lu the sixties
and seventies of the nineteenth cen
tury, and had failed, because the pro
jectors did not understand the busi
ness. Since thou great progress has
been made, both here and abroad, in
the cultivation and manipulation of the
beet. What was impossible thirty
years ago is now entirely feasible. The
industry is already on a solid and en
during basis. There ave factories in
the United. States, these gentlemen
tell us in their letter, capable of using
330,000 tons of beets per annum at a
profit of $3 per ton, and this would
make a profit of $1,030,000 as the in
come to be earned under absolute free
It must be plain to readers of this
letter, signed by the captains of tho
licet sugar Industry, that the people in
Washington who are declaiming
against the temporary measure which
the President of the United States
urges for the relief of the Cuban peo
ple, are either grossly ignorant of the
subject, or are practising gross decep
tion. The tenable ground for them is
to say: "Other people are baring pro
tection that liiey do not need, and
therefore we ought to have more than
we need." This would be consistent
with the letter of Messrs. Oxnard and
Cutting, but nothing else is so._
