, ; . ' THE DRAFT HORSE. '
? The heavy draft horse is one of the
most profitable classes of horses that
the farms? can raise. He should weigh
from-1800 pounds upward-the more
$?f?'l?tt?r, provided it is conducive
?with quality and good feet and legs.
The body should .be deep, wide ann"
strong; couplt-d with shortness -ot back
and the muscling of t?te lion. Good
;ic?bn"ls essential as indicated by the
length of stride, quickness of step and
straightaway movements. |
WARMED GRAIN FOR POULTRY.
? Mention has, been made in this de
partment of the pian of the writer in
feeding whole corn to fowls at night
and haviag it almost hot. This -winter
,we have made it & practice to feed all
-whole ?raia only after warming, lt
wa^fpund that the. nights the ?fowls
Were given the hot corn they were
fcappy and warm, while op: ether
-nights, when other grains were fed in
their rotation in the ration, the fowls
were more or less restless and did not
settlfc down to sleep so soon.
R'lfk little thoughv made it apparent
: that the birds missed the warm tood,
just as a human would miss it, and
that their stomachs were no more
pleased with a cold supper on. a cold
night than the stomach of the feeder
would be. This plan of feeding to
gether, with the plan of having all wa*
ter given the fowls warmed, nearly
?pt, worts nicely, as any one will see
??too will try it. . ? : ?
?1 " TENDENCY OF BREEDS. -
It should be borne in mind in. bree?>
?ng that the proper type is wh?t snbuld

?fe well as good. Plymouth Rocks can
lie raised, but thc correct type of this
breed should be aimed at. The English
Dorking is recognized as the best type
*>f fowl, and all breeders are trying to
produce this style. The points to aim
Vt are prominent, long, yet square,
breasts, short legs, but with good width.
' 'between. Low set birds with good
p ?t?asts are wanted, and these are the
liest to fatten. The utility type as
against the purely exhibition is grad
ually forcing its way to the front The
'broad and blocky Buff Orpington,

is* a ease, in point. It is impossible to

.?.-..'??v TWO HANDY TOOLS. '
i The illustration shows two tools
? which will be found useful on any
farm where fruits and vegetables are
grown. The rakelike tool is ?rn onion
Vow marker and will save an immense
a?nount bf time in setting onions i?
used as directed. Take a piece of
material three feet long and about two
inches square and, after boring suit
able holes four inches apart, set in and
fasten pins of wood so that they will
project about two inches. These pins
should be about one-half inch square
and. bluntly pointed. Attach a short
?andie as shown and the tool is ready.
THE HANDY TOOLS.
To .use set the marker on the line
laid out for the row and, with the
foot, press lightly down so as to make
a shallow hole to indicate where the
onion set is to go. The other tool is
a tree pruner and is made by taking
a hardwood pole six feet long and
one and one-quarter inches in diam
eter and rounding it. An old fork
handle will do nicely for the purpose.
Buy a good one and one-quarter inch
chisel and fit one end of the pole to
the socket of this chisel. If this tool
is kept sharp it will easily cut a limb
a half inch in diameter and it will be
found very useful in working where
it would be very troublesome to place
a knife or a handsaw.
A DIGESTIVE FOR HORSES.
. As nearly all horses are troubled
. with indigestion, due largely to same
ness in rations, and many are subject
to attacks of colds, it is a good plan
to have on hand some simple digestive
which may be mixed with the feed
.'given the horse. Horses that are sub
ject to stomach disturbances should be
given bran mashes several times a
' week, r.t night, and oats should consti
lute a very considerable portion of
their grainration. In feeding the bran
mashes mix in each a tablespoonful of
powdered charcoal. If the animal ob
jects to it at first, reduce the quautity
: and- then increase to the quantity
named. Horses subject to colic should
be carefully worked, and if such at
tacks appear with any regularity, daily
exercise should take the place of work
and the horse be treated by a veterin
arian. Try this charcoal treatment,
. do it regularly, and you will find the
digestive organs of the horses much
Our Taste For Chocolate.
The taste of the people of the United
States for cacao and chocolate appears
to be developing with rapidity. Fig
ures compiled by the Department of
Commerce and Labor show that the
importation of cacao has grown from
nine million pounds in 1883 to twenty
four million pounds in 1893, and sixty
three million pounds in 1903. Cacao,
as is well understood, is the product
of the cacao tree, which gro^s wild in
tropical America, and is also much
cultivated there, and to some extent in
Asja and Africa. The fruit of this
treej a pear-shaped pod from five to
ten ipches in length, contains numer
oqu la?ge seeds from which the choco
late pf commerce is produced, while
the she)ls are also utilized for the de
coction known as cacao, or cocoa, used
as a substitue for tea or coffee. It
is the crude cacao, leaves and shellu
wjiieb form the large and rapidly
growing importation above referred
-, to,. which has increased from nine
million pounds In 1883 to sixty-three
million pounds in 1903. The value of
importation of cocao in this crude form
Ibas grown from one million dollars
in 1883 to four million dollars in 1893,

Fnst Stettin Trains.
The recent experiments in Germany
to test the practical speed limit of elec
tric traction trains, has been followed
by an investigation of the highest
steam train movements by some stu
dents of that country. The subject
was taken up by others connected with
the University of Chicago, and results
tabulated in a railway publication. The
superiority of American train service
was conclusively established. It was
shown that the fastest trains in the
world were run by the Pennsylvania
and Philadelphia and Reading systems,
between Philadelphia and Atlantic
City-the Reading flyers standing nt
the head of the list. It was found that
four different trains upon these lines,
running between Atlantic City and
Camden, make these high figures per
hour, respectively, C4.44, CG.GO, G6.92
and 67.9G. The maximum speed shown
by Europe was between Paris and
[ Calais, 59.72.
Beleaguered l>y Ice.
Nantucketers will long remember the
?winter of 1903-4. Three different times
has the island been isolated by ice,
weeks in all. No one person could buy
two pounds of sugar or more than one
quart of kerosene. Only islaud beef
could be purchased at the markets.
Captain Killen, a w*ell-known islander,
after figuring the price of grain and
the amount of milk he was getting,
aud then learning the price that lean
cow meat was bringing, decided to
kill old Sal, his favorite cow, and she
fetched from thirty-eight to forty-four
cents a pound. The assistnnt keeper
from Gray Point light walked to town
across the bay, a distance of twenty
miles, something that never was heard
of before by thc oldest inhabitants
and some of them are past ninety.
Hygienists all agree in telling us that
we do not eat nearly enough fruit,
which is infinitely more productive of
health and beauty than sweetmeats
and pastry. Ripe apples are especially
healthy, and children may eat them
without danger. Some doctors say
that an apple at bedtime produces
sleep. Pears are more tasty than ap?
p'es, but not so healthy unless cooked.
Prunes have medicinal qualities which
cannot be denied. They are better
cooked, however. Apricots are also
more healthy cooked than raw.
Peaches are very good, but the most
health-giving of all fruits are grapes.

Mr. W. M. TnnPtttll. of Lovlntrston, Va.,
says: "I am piad to my that I firmly believe

as wanted a drink in nny form since I took
your eradicator, now 18 months ago. It was
thc best money I ever invested."
Mrs. Vir, ?ilia Townsend, of Shreveport, La.,
writes: "No n;orc opium. I have taken no
other remedy thin yours, and I make no mis
take when I say that my health is better now
than it ever wac in my J i fe, and I owe it to you
and your remedy. Tt has been twelve years
since I was cured by your treatment."
Dr. Woolley hus thousands of such testimon
