Sulphur us n Di?iiilec'ant.
Sulphur burnt ic the poultry house
will dispel ioul odors, and thoroughly
disinfect the disease breeding germs.
It is no: difficult to do, and requires
only a few minutes' time once every
month. One of tho simplest ways is
to heat an old shovel until red and
sprinkle a few tablespoonfuls of pow
dered sulphur on lt. Close the doors
of the house at once, and be careful
that no fowls arc concealed therein,
as tho fumes mean certain death for
. Let tho door remain closed for an
hour, then open and let the house have
ventilation. Carbolic acH is also one
of the best disinfectants, and may be
tmrnt like sulphur, but if sprayed over
the roosts and walls, it answers the
purpose equally well.
Green, Corn for Tabla U?e.
Near some of the summer hotels
there ivre farmers who grow sweet
corn fer them and they plant corn
almost every wee kfrcm May 1 to Au
gust 1. that they may ?ell it every
week whiie the guests are there. But
many farm'-s and gardeners not hav
ing this spacial trade to cater for,
make but one or two plants, and
though it may be a favorite food with
the iamiiy, there is but a short season
that it is available. We can see why
the market gardener may desire to
have his corn crop harvested and out
of the way that he may grow another
crop upon the same land, but where
land is so abundant that one docs not
want to produce double crops on it,
we see no reason why this succession
of crops shottld not bc kept up. We
have had it on our table nearly every
day from July until November, and
liked it as well at the last picking as
at the first, and we know it to be
wholesome and nutritious, and know
that its use reduced both meat and bread
bills. The late plantings might have
to be picked before the first severe
frost and kept in a cool place until
we were ready to use the corn, but
even then? they should oe as fresh as
much that is sold in our markets.
The soil is like a bank deposit. One
can check out until the deposit is ex
hausted, thereafter checks are not
honored. He who would always be in
a position to draw on the bank muse
continue making deposits. It is said
that many Pennsylvania farmers have
quite ruined their land by the use of
lime. Lime is merely a solvent, quick
ly making the plant food in the soil
available. Of course, if no attention
was paid tc raising clover, and no in
crease made in the stock fed, and the
freed plant food thus returned in the
shape of manure, the improvement ot
the soil must have gone on at a rapid
rate. But where the soil was fe?'., lime
was a great and permanent advantage.
It will often be good policy to feed
with a view to making larger quanti
ties of stable manure. If the gain in
flesh of the stock fed just equals in
market value the cost of the feed
stuffs consumed, then the manure pro
duced is acquired at the cost 'of the
labor invloved in caring for the stock.
It is often possible* to feed on this
basic, and ia most cases the fertilizing
.matter will be better and cheaper than
if- bought in the form of commercial
Some times the cost of feeds used
may even exceed the pnafket value of
the increase in weight and value of
the animal fed, and still bc profitable
from our point of view. A feeder of
teers recently reported a gain in
weight of 80 pounds per month for two
months on a ration of hay, silage,
seven pounds corn meal, two pounds
oil meal and- three pounds bran, the
animals being kept in box stalls and
never exposed. Now in this case, at
present prices of feed, there may have
been no margin of profit or a very
small one. Yet where the entire ma
nure was saved. I have no doubt that
the "feeder was well reimbursed. For
fully 50 percent of the fertilizing mat
ter in the feed was lett on the place.
When stock is fed for manure in win
ter'plenty of absorbent bedding being
supplied and Clover or stock peas
grown, the manufacture of soil food
ib""c?rried on the entire year, and the
results will soon appear In abundant
harvests. Feed the soil, and the ti>ll
will.more than feed you.-Cincinnatus

.Leaner I'ork In Demand.
Real bacon has been so little grown
in this country that the public are
only now getting familiar with it.
Until recently it was not far different
with our mutton, but in that line of
meat production the change has beep
marked during recent years.
The trend of change in the public
taste vith other classes of meat is al
together in the direction of leaner
meat. Because of this change, the
large, heavy-weight steer of eighteen
hundred pounds has been set away
back in the marKets of today. The
handy weight early maturing steer of
1200 to 1500 pounds has taken his
place, and old fat wethers weighing
120 to 180 pounds alive are now be
ing superseded by the lamb under 12
months and weighing from 70 to 100
pounds. It would seem incredible to
the writer that public taste should
change so much in the direction of
leaner beef and leaner mutton, and
tbat there should not follow a corre
sponuing change in the same, in the
line of leaner pork-that is to say, in
the line of pork that ls more of the
. A certain Iowa packer of pork pur
chased last autumn at least three car
loads of large improved Yorkshire
swine. These were taken down into
Central Iowa-that is to say, into the
very hea-t of the corn belt. They
were not taken there for purposes of
slaughter, but for breeding uses. The
males were chiefly intended for being
crossed upon the types of sows al
ready in that country. The purchaser
told the writer that his object was to
indude the farmer from whom his sup
plies were obtained to grow swine that
were more of the bacon type. He
wished such animals, he said, because,
all in.ail, tLey suited his trade better
than, toe other types of swine, such as
he had been purchasing.
When the- average farmer of today
kills'swine for ms own use, which type
of ?? mal does he prefer? Does he
not 'pass by the large, heavily laden
hog and choose such as are lighter and
not so highly finished? If the taste of
the farmer himself ls veering in the
direction of meat more nearly resem
bling the bacon types, why should
not the taste of the customer for
whom he grows lt veer in the same
direction?-Professor Thomas Shaw,
in Twentieth Century Farmer.
Dipping Sheep nt !. hearing Time.
One gallon of dip costing $1.50 will
make 100 gallons of dip when properly
diluted for dipping. The best time for
dipping is at shearing time just after
the wool has been removed. The ticks
usually leave the old shjeep, going to
the lambs, before or at the time of
shearing, so it becomes necessary to
dip the entire flock in order to get
rid of them.
Where one man has a sufficient
number of sheep, he should own a
dipping tank, but where several
neighbors own sheep, one tank may
serve the neighborhood. The most
successful hog men arc dipping their
hogs nowadays. kso the tank may serve
a double purpose. Galvanized hon
tanks made especially for this work
are so cheap and durable that any
other sort of tank is expensive. There
are several sheep dips in the market
which can be bought. They come in
a concentrated form and should be
used according to nie manufacturer's
directions. Avoid dips Waich contain
limo and sulphur, as they are injurious
to the wool.
A convenient method of dipping is to
have thc tank set at the end of a nar
row lane or shu Le, leading out from
thc sheep pen or barn. Thc lane may
bc temporary where hurdles are avail
able. Thc tank fer convenience
should be sunk a foot or more in thc
ground. After the sheep have been
sheared, they (Iambs included) are
driven through thc ianc, which should
be narrow enough to cause the sheep
to go single file, to the tank. As they
are iorced into the tank, a man, or
two if available, catches thc sheep to
see that it becomes thoroughly soaked,
forces the head r.nder for a sec
ond and then assists it in getting out
of the tank. Tho sheep should re
main in the dip long enough to thor
oughly saturate the wool to the skin.
If a low-wheeled wagon with bed and
sideboards on is at hand, it is a good
plan to back it up to thc tar.K, allow
ing the sheep to come out of the tank
Into the wagon, where they should
remain until the wagon is full. This
keeps them from shaking the dip off
for a little time, and is also about thc
height of the top of the tank, making
a good platform upon which to land.
Where sheep are regularly and thor
oughly dipped once a year there is
usually no need of a second dipping;
but in case ticks are found on them
they should bc dipped again in the fall
just before cool weataer. Dipping is
not only a remedy for ticks and lice,
but is practiced as a cure and preven
tive of scab.-J. H. Skinner, in Orange
tweaking Up Broody Hen?.
Ask an old farmer the best way to
break up a broody hen, and ten to
one he will tell you: "Shut them up
and starve them, or duck them in cold
water: throw them as far as you pos
sibly can every time you come near
the nest; tie a rag on their tails, or
build a frame wuere they must always
stand on a roost, with no chance of
settling down." A short time ago I
heard a new way, and I tried it and
found it worked well.
Remove your u?n from the nest
carefully-and here is a point which
R is well to follow at all times: Al
ways handle a hen as you would a
child, with care and consideration, as
they arc tender things, and jerking af
fects their nervous system just as
much as it would affect your child to
grab it by the anns or legs and swing
it over your head once in a while. That
is something w"hich many people, and
even men ard women who have rnado
a study bf the poultry business for
many years, do not know, or else they
do not care to know. But, to return
to my subject: Take the hen carefully
from thc nest, place her in a comfort
able place, but in altogether new sur
roundings, where there are ro nests,
and do not starve her by any means.
On the contrary, feed her on all the
rich, concentrated foods she will eat,
and especially see that she has some
kind of animal food-green cut bone
is ab- ut the best for this. Be sure
she has plenty of grit, some green food
and water. Do not forgot thc last, as
what we wish to do is to get this hen
in laying condition again, and in or
der to do this she must have plenty of
good food and water. Before long we
find our setting, hen has renewed her
entire constitution; that old broody
feeling passes away, and she feels like
getting out and enjoying the air, and
will soon by laying again.
The reason this process acts so well
and so quickly is that a hen after lay
ing a large number of eggs becomes
worn out; her constitution has stood
a heavy drain for all winter, perhaps,
and she feels a desire, a very natural
desire, to sit, because it is thc nature
of the hen to sit and raise a brood ol
chicks at least once a year. By rais
ing this brood she rests herself, and
that is why sho is usually in such gooc
condition when winter comes. I hav?
heard showmen say that they like tc
have their hens sit, as by doing this
they rest up, and in the winter whet,
the show season comes on, instead o?
having an old fagged out hen who has
been forced to lay most all the year
around, they have a hen that has had
her np .ural rest, and she is in good
condition to show. About this latter
I am not much of an authority, but I
do know that a hen c?n be broken
fruin being broody by feeding care
fully and changing her quarters. She
will begin laying quicker under this
treatment than any other, and, in my
mind at least, it is the best I have ever
tried, and I have tried several other
humane ways.-Correspondence in
New York Tribune Farmer.
The stables should give shelter,
warmth and ventilation.
Do not feed lambs on rape alone, but
accustom them to lt gradually when
fed with other fodder.
The barn and all the outbuildings

It takes a horse over an hour to mas
ticate four pounds of hay, half an hour
for whole oats, and only 15 minutes lo

Some cows give more milk and milk
that is richer if they are fed a little
while milking. It will pay to humor
the whims of such cows.
Never give sour milk to the brood
sow with a young litter of pigs. To
do so is to invite scouring and ruin
the prospects of the litter.
The state veterinarian of Nebraska
says it ls unwise to ring the noses ?f
hogs. If tney have plenty of salt and
ashes they will root very little.
An excess of corn in the diet of the
sow and also of the young pigs ls apt
to produce scours. The pigs should
have no corn until six weeks old.
Frequent change of pasture i? of
great benefit to sheep, and is to be
recommended even though they have
to be removed from a field where the
grass is good into one where lt is poer.

A C?t. That Cried,
"Do animals ever shed tears?" is a
question frequently asked, but never
satisfactorily answered. Some one
tells us of a cow that wept freely when
separated from her calf. In one ot the
largo buildings of the city the other
day many people were witnesses of a
weeping kitten. The wee mite had
strayed into the building, and there
had encountered a fierce, barking dog
of the fox terrier variety.
She had run to escape him into a
room in which was the roar of much
machinery, had been shouted at, had
had a piece of coal thrown at her, had
been caught by the napo of the neck
and flung by a giant, had been taken
up in a lift, and had had the tip of her
tail pinched by some laughing men.
When she finally reached her desti
nation, a quiet spot at the top of the
tall building, she was a palpitating
mass of fur more dead than alive, with
no fight left in her and with tears
streaming from her eyes. Indeed, a
more lachrymose sight was never seen.
It took a good fifteen minutes of pet
ting and cajolery to induce her to stop
crying, too, and to lift her head. But
finally, like the cow in the story, she
became consoled.-New York News.
Hill nnd Joe.
Ray likes best to have me tell him
stones about Bill and "Joe, two great
black dogs. They are owned by two
boys, .vbo live near a village by the
sea. In the summer many people
como there to board, 'in cottages and
at the big hotel. Thc boys have a
wagon for the dogs, and when Bill and
Joe are harnessed and the boys are in
the wagon driving this turn-out is
looked at by everybody. All think the
boys have thc best dogs they ever saw.
The boy? sell newspapers during
the summer and twice a day, when li
trains conic in, thc boys arc there with
the dogs and the wagon and they drive
around, leaving the papers at. the cot
tages and the houses. All the boys ai
the shore are on t .e watch for Bill and
Joe, and when they come along some
of the boys and girls get a ride, and
this pleases them very much, and they
are made extra happy when the boys
let them drive thc dogs awhile.
One summer a little sick girl came
lo the hotel with bur father and
mother. They thought the sea air
would do the child good. She was a
sweet girl, but looked so weak and so
thin everybody was sorry for her. She
did not -seem to get any belter and the
only thing she seemed to care for was
to see handsome Bill and Joe come
trotting along. Then she would
brighten up a little and seem to take
So one day her father asked the boys
to drive right up near to where little
Etta was sitting, and how pleased she
was! The boys spoke to her and the
dogs kissed her hands. Then the boys
said to her father:
'"Don't you want, sir, to have us
give Etta a ride?"
The father looked at the girl and
she whispered to him, "Yes," so he
took her up carefully lu -is arms and
put ?UT on the seal beside one of the
Loys and she had a nice little ride.
It seemed to do her good, for that
evening she ate a little more and
seemed a little hungry. The boys gave
her a ride again the next day andt hen
her father asked the boys to come for
a few moments twice a day.
So every day Etta watched for Bill
and Joe morning and afternoon, and
she acted as if that gave her some
thing to live for. She kept getting
better and belter, and after a time
walked down to thc wagon instead of
being carried. In a few weeks she
was called well and her mother and
father and thc doctor all thought that
Bill and Joe had cvtred her.
How she loved those dogs! When
it was time to go home It seemed as if
she could nol bear to part with them.
The father tried to buy Bill and Joe
and told the boys he would give them
?200 for the dogs, but they would not
sell them for any price. So the father
comforted Ella by telling her he
would bring her back the next, sum
mer to play again with Bill and Joe.
He also gave the boys $20 and told
them to buy new harness fpr the
dogs and do what they liked with the
rest of the money. They bought the
harness and put the balance of the
money In the bank, for they hoped to
go to coll?g? gome day, and began
when they were tiny lads to save for
that good end.-Brooklyn Eagle.
Archie ?ti I the Crow.

One day when Archie was out in the
woods with one of his grandfather s
hired men the man caught and gav?
to Archie for a pei. a young crow. A
crow, sven in the wildest state, is a
sort of half-domestlcated animal. It
is no trouble at all to tame them, and,
a,side from their Insatiable desire tb
get into all sorta of mischief, they make
nirti pets. Archie and his crow were
pretty- good friends by the time they
got to the house, and this wag of the
feathered tribe opened up a rich run
of the funniest, drollest thingB for his.
young master during all that summer's
vacation. The birtl never lost an op
portunity to play a practical joke on
anybody and everybody; but he seemed
especially delighted when his victim
was the old man. Archie's grandfather,
all of which was accepted in good part
by the old gentleman, until one day
the crow carried his jokes a little too
far, and -came perilously near being
a dead crow afterward.
Although the old man was rich, be
yond the necessity of labor, he believed
in plenty of outdoor exorcise, and was
especially fond of working in his own
garden and orchard. In the kitchen
garden there was a beaut ifni big pear
tree, in which the crow used to perch
himself and watch Ihe old man sow
seeds, set out young tomatoes and cab
bage plants; while Archie enjoyed tho
same sight from his hammock on the
One day grandpa stretched a line
some fifty feet long, by the aid of
which he intended to set o-.it a straight
row of young cabbage plants. There
are few more back-breaking jolts ahout
a farm than this setting out of young
cabbage or tomato plants. On this
day all thc old gentleman's attention
was on the job in hand. He was not
thinking o'f Archie or the crow, or
anything else except those cabbage
plants, which were in a pan by his
side, as he worked slowly and patient
ly along toward the end of the long
line. Every twelve or fourteen Inches
he would punch a hole in the soft, rich
loam with a sharp stick, slip the root
of a young cabbage plant down in this
hole, press the earth compactly around
it, and then make another hole at the
proper distance off, into which he
inserted the root of another plant.
The old man never took his eyes off
his work until he got to the end of his
line, by which time his back and legs
were so nearly broken that he was in
sore need of the satisfaction of survey
ing a hard task, well done Alas! alas!
When he did turn around to view with
pride his work, what was his disgust to
see that Archie's crew had followed
along behind him and quietly pulled up
every solitary cabbage plant, aftef
which the wicked imp of a bird had
flown into the pear tree, where he lok
ed as innocent and solemn as If there
were not a cabbage plant within a
thousand miles. Archie was asleep in
bis hammock-that's what the old man
said lo himself. He was sure of it. It
was the wind and not the little rascal's
laughing that shook the hammock so.

away, and inspect that morsel of string
from thc southeast.
Then she will flit over the apple

from other points of the compass. At

Sin ki n Grtipl* Tor Invalid..
Preparing food for an invalid or for
a convalescent is a thankless task at
best. There is nothing very inspiring
to the cook in gruels and teas of the
various sorts, but since there will al
ways be a somewhat steady demand
for these uninteresting foods, lt is
well lo know how they should 'be
cooked and why one way is bettor
than another. Gruels which are mix
tures of grain or flour and water or
water and milk need more careful at
tention than do many French dishes.
To be easy of digestion, gruels must
be thoroughly cooked, and therefore
the milk, when it is auded at all,
should be added only when the grain
has been well cooked in water first.
If the water has evaporated in cook
ing, the original quantity must be re
cored before putting in thc milk and
the milk be hot boiling and loses much
of its agreeable taste. Another point
about gruels is that they should be
drunk slowly. Tho action of the sa
liva upon the starch is considerable,
and therefore the more slowly the
gruel is taken thc more easily will it
Thc skill in gruel making comes in
when one knows how to vary the
flavor so as to render the food appe
tizing. Sweet gruel is far from pleas
ant, yet it is well often to add a very
little sugar. Cinnamon, grated lemon
peel, vanilla, nutmeg and almond are
flavorings that may be used at dis
crc.'*on. Flour gruel is one in which
any of these flavorings is used, al
though when it Is intended for a fever
ish patient a little lemon juice is rec
ommended. To make it with cinna
mon, for instance, mix one tablespoon
ful of flour, one te?spoonsful of sugar
and one saltspoonful of salt together
and moisten with two tablespoonful of
cold water, working to a smooth paste.
Now add one cupful of boiling water
and a bit of stick cinnamon. Poll
gently for 20 minutes, taking especial
care that it does not burn. Now add
one cupful of hot milk and let the
mixture just reach the boiling point.
This is to be served very hot and
should be strained to insure perfect
freedom from lumpiness.
Windows should be cleaned with

In frying with a frying basket al
