Concrete Belt Armor.
The use of re-enforced concrete
armor on warships has recently been
suggested. An Italian engineer. Lor
enzo d'Adda, has been led bj the suc
cess of concrete land fortifications,
as revealed in the Russian-Japanese
war, to construct armor plates of re
enforced concrete, covered with thin
plates of steel, as a protection against
the immediate effects of the impact of
shells. Concrete armor plates, even
when re-enforced.foy stout and close
ly inlaid Iron bars, must obviously
be much thicker than hardened steel
armor, but as the" specific gravity
of the material is only one-third that
cf sf "1 the weight of the armor need
net be increased, while Its cost may
be very greatly diminished. The sub
stitution of re-enforced concrete for
steel armor on a first chas -battleship
would effect a considerable saving.
The practicability of 'the substitution,
will be decided by the result of ex
periments, soon to be made, on the
effect cf shots on the re-enforced
concrete plates.-Scientific American.

Milk Kept by Gas Pressure.
In some of the milk studies made at
York Agricultural Experiment Station
(Geneva), it was observed that car
bonic acid gas in the milk tended to
prevent its souring. This seemed
worthy of further investigation, and a
series of tests was conducted in which
the gas was combined with the milk
varying pressures, using the ordinary
6oda water chargers and sealing the
bottles to retain the gas and exclude
the air. With the higher pressures of
gas, souring of the milk was delayed
indefinitely; as bottles charged under
pressure of 175 pounds to the inch re
mained sweet for five months. The
milk thus treated makes an agreeable
drink; and it is believed that the pro
cess will be valuable for preserving
milk for use on sea-going vessels, In
hospitals and elsewhere. Full details
of the tests are given in Bulletin No.

Corn or Potatoes.
Some time ago E noticed an article
in the paper from a Maine farmer who
did not think it paid farmers in New
England to raise corn, but said it would
pay better to raise potatoes, and buy
our corn from the West. Did this
brother farmer ever think what would
be the result if everybody went into
the potato business? They would not
be worth 25 cents a bushel, and they
are a crop that we cannot use at home
at any profit. But not so with corn.
We can use all we can raise at a good
profit, and there is no danger of over

The Horse and Over Check.
An old and experienced horseman
"My experience has been that no
horse can be successfully driven with
anything like a severe bit. I never
saw one that was ever broken of the
habit of pulling in that way. If you
put a severe bit in the horse's mouth
and pull on it, it makes the horse mad
and irritates him; the further you
drive him and the harder you pull
him the more he will pull against it.
When I was a boy, almost every trot
ter I saw would pull in a disagreeable
manner when being driven at top
speed. At the present time I cannot
think of one horse that is anything
like first-class that pulls enough to
make it disagreeable for the man at
any time. A great many people think
that every horse should be driven with
an overcheck. I can remember when
I had the same opinion myself. I am
now satisfied that it is a serious mis
take. There are a great many horses
that will not take kindly to an over
check, and if you insist on using it on
them it will sooner or later spoil the
horse's disposition to a great extent.
The first thing in training a horse
is to make a careful study of the ani
mal, learning all his peculiarities,
faults, weaknesses, habits, etc. I
think one vital mistake made by men
training horses is that ''they do not
seem to think horses are made of
flesh and blood, and very nearly hu
man in all their ways.
. % Greater Corn Crops.
Every farmer located in thc corn
belt is desirous of growing as much
corn per acre as possible and it is
the fault in many instances of the
corn land owner if he does not do so.
In this section our farmers are
learning that it is profitable to study
the minor details that affect the pro
duction of a good healthy corn crop.
Proper soil and good drainage are
the first two requisites. We have the
former and cannot afford to do with
out the latter.
Then disk well both ways of the
field before breaking up the soil. This
cultivates the soil and pulverizes thor
oughly the portion that is to grow
and nourish the roots. Before disking
the soil it is proper to get all the
manures upon the farm onto this soil
and thoroughly disk it in by the opera
tion. Then you are ready to break
ui the soil with a good plow.
You will find this last operation
greatly lightened by the disking and
you cannot only plow better furrows,
but deeper as well than where you
have a rigid and unworked surface
before you. The tilth of the entire
field is greatly lightened and much
easier prepared for planting.
This operation pays great returns
when done In tue proper manner and
not only pays in growing corn alone,
but as well in growing the potato

ity and in quantity. In quality first.

grains and placing them upon a mus

respond. Place the mat Into a good
sized, flat box filled with moist carta
or sawdust. In a few days you can
discard the worthless grains and the
ears to which they belong, for they
have failed to germinate, or are weak
ly in sprouting. Shell off the tips and
butts. No use for them. Yet they
will grow and produce, but plenty of
nice uniform grains will make a more

Raising. Geese on Farms.
Young geese are easily cared for,
and cause little trouble or expense to
raise after the first six weeks, pro

pasturage. They are really grazing
birds, and will forage for themselves
on the right kind of land. Not only
do they get most of their own living,
but tend to Improve the quality of the
No great expense is required for
building. A low house four feet high
answers for shelter. The floor should
be covered with plenty of litter, and
no special attention to warmth is re
quired. During the pasture season
geese should be allowed free range
In their pasture, returning at night
for shelter, lt pasturage is limited it
would pay to grow green crops, such
as oats, to be fed off by the geese.
A pond or stream is not necessary,
but it is desirable to have enough
water for them to swim in, and they
will find a great deal of natural food
along the banks of small, ' sluggish
streams or on overflowed land. "
During the laying season, early In
the spring; the eggs should be re<
moved from the nest so that the goose
will lay as many eggs as possible,
usually from thirty to forty. The sur
plus eggs may be placed under hens,
three or four eggs to a hen, choosing
large sized birds. The period of
hatching is thirty days. The eggs set
under hens are apt to lack moisture
and should be sprinkled occasionally
to prevent the inner skin from being
tough and hindering the hatching of
The young goslings will almost
raise themselves, being hardy and
strong and growing very fast. They
soon become able to look after them
selves. Unlike chickens, they need
very little .brooding, and at the end
of a week or ten days may be kept in
good sized flocks of twenty or twenty
five. During the first ten days or so
they should be confined in a low,
movable run to prevent their wander
ing away and getting lost. This run
should be in a shady place, and con
nected with a sheered coop.
These youngsters are fed very much
like young chickens, plenty of good
fresh skim-milk being especially de
sirable to make rapid growth. After
the first ten days the appetite of
growing goslins becomes very vigor
ous, and cheapness should be sought
in the food ration. Besides the grass
pasturage, which will furnish a large
part of nhe food, it is possible to work
off various cheap by-products, such as
slightly damaged grains, which may
be had at seventy-five cents to $1 per
hundred at the grain stores making a
specialty of such lines.
The goslings may be either grown
quickly to market as green geese or
kept through the season for the
Christmas trade, both plans being
followed by those farmers of the east
ern states.-American Cultivator.

A Gentle Hint.
Senator Fulton at his annual Ore
gon salmon dinner in Washington,
told a tipping story.
"In Astoria," he said, ' there used to
be an old fisherman who, brought me
the first of every month a present of
a splendid salmon from his master. 1
always gave the old fisherman a tip.
"But one morning I was very busy
and when the old man brought tne
fish I thanked him hurriedly, and for
getting his tip bent over my desk
again. He hositated a moment, then
cleared his throat and said:
"Senator, would ye be so kind as
to put it in wrltin' that ye dion it give
me no Up this time, or my wife'll
think I've went and spent it on rum."
Why He Could Not Change.

of a dream he had had, In which this
partnership arrangement evidently an

came ia so fast and furious that the
majority of them had to be returned
