HOG CHOLERA RECOMMENDED
Device ls Paying Proposition and Will
Save Trouble-Animals Soon
Learn Its Use.
There seems to be very little said
about the hog oiler aud j*et it is
something that has beeu used ou a
great many farms for the past year or
two. I have had experience with oil
ers of different kinds and find that
the usu of a good oiler, that does not
leak or clog up, is quite worth while
and Ls a paying proposition, as it will
save a great deal of trouble and ne
glect, says a writer in an exchange.
A great many farmers neglect keep
ing their hogs free from lice and
mange simply because it is so much
trouble and annoyance to pot them up
in a pen and sprinkle or dip them.
;The ho# oiler not only snves time
and trouble, but also saws oil, since
much oil Is wn>r?'1 whoa the sprin
ging can ls used.
There are two distinct kinds of oil
ers on the market: The cylinder oiler
and the"* upright or post oiler. The
oller that does not waste oil by leak
ing or overflowing and one that oper
ates easily is one of the best invest
ments a hog raiser can make; while
the oller that leaks or clogs up with
dirt ls almost useless.
If the oiler is set np in a place
where the hops congregate every day,
mich as the feeding place, they will
almost Invariably use it when they
smell the oil.
FENCING FOR HOG PASTURES
Material Slump In Profits if Animals
Are Confined to Pens-Make
; Barrier "Pig-Tight."
The raising of hogs calls for the
fencing In of a field or two for hog
pasture, for every hogkeeper well
knows that there is a very material
slump In the profits in pork-growing
Jf the hogs are kept in pens or small
Tuns, obtaining no food except that
i?iven them. Of the three prime es
sentials In a hog pasture-namely
.pasturage, water supply and fence
Ihe fence is of more importance than
most of ns realize until a stiff blt of
experience sets us thinking. The hog
Jot fence, of all fences on the farm,
jieeds to be built substantially and
'"pig-tight." Any hog pasture fence
.'that is put up hurriedly and somewhat
?indifferently ls a detriment to all con
jcerned-to the rest of the farm, to tho
(farmer and to the hogs, even.

SOME DEFINITIONS OF LIFE
Not All Sadness as Some Affect to Be
lieve, but Cannot Be All Joy
"Dreams! dreams! dreams!" an
swered Lord' Beaconsfield, bending
over the fire, when the late Lord Ron
ald Gower asked him, just before the
end, how he regarded the life of tri
umph. And then, characteristically
enough, smoking a cigarette which he
had just accepted, the statesman said.
"I L^ve not smoked since you wero
"Life," Lord Beaconsfield said tome
that last time I was with him at Hugh
enden (wrote Lord Ronald after
wards), "life is an ennui, or an anx
iety;" and he enlarged on his text, by
saying that for the self-made life "ls
full of troubles and anxieties, for fear
of losing the position or the wealth
they have obtained; and for those
born with position and wealth there
is nothing to strive for, and life then
becomes a mere bore', an ennui, and a
burden. "My idea," he added, "of a
happy future state is one of those long
I midsummer days when ene dines.at
nine o'clock!" Lord Beaconsfield had
left out the majority of mankind, those
who cannot afford either to be anxious
or to bo bored, and. indeed, in that
hatf-way state I believe the truest
earthly happiness exists.
"Life." added Lord Ronald, "when
those wo have loved and cherished in
lt are taken from us, is a long sad
ness; but, thank God, we may humbly
hop6 that In his good time we shall
again meet with our lost and loved."
CANNOT EXHAUST THE AIR
Scientific Explanation as to Why a
. Lack of Nitrogen Need Not Be a
Matter of Dread.
A student at the University of Wash
ington, haTing read about making ni
trogen from the air, entered the chem
istry department and ask d the pro
fessors there what v aid happen
when all the nitrogen had been taken
out of the air. The University of
Washington News-Letter says that
this is what they told him:
"The atmosphere over a squaro mile
of land is estimated to contain 20.000,
000 tons of nitrogen, which is enough
to furnish all the world would require
for fifty years at the present rate of
consumption. Even if that were not
BO, there would be no danr/.r, for
there's a sort of 'dust to dust' process
involved that is a safeguard in itself.
"Nitrates, when they go into the
soil, are taken up by the roots of
plants and utilized. After the plant
? decays the nitrogen is given off, and
j lt returns again to tho atmosphere,
j "If employed in the manufacture of
j explosives, when the charge is explod
, ed part of the nitrate returns to the
air as gas, while some goes into BC^
? lution, falls to the earth and is taken
! up by the plants, returning later to
j the air."
Rank and File.
He was a "rookie" on his first sentry
duty at one of the government reser
vations. The corporal cf the guard
: had told him what to do when the
officer of the day appeared, which by
- rule ought to be at about half-past
nine that night. Sentry was to no
tify corporal when the officer had
passed. At ten o'clock no report from
the sentry. The corporal wanted to
know why. Much perturbed, the sen
try said he was sorry. He had not
? seen the officer.
"Keep me posted," said the corporal
sharply. "He might bo late."
Fifteen minutes later the officer ap
peared, and this colloquy ensued:
Sentry-Who goes there?
Officer-Officer of the day.
Sentry-You're late, you are. You'll
get the devil when the corporal of the
guard sees you.
Cocoa as Currency.
Cocoa passed as currency among
the natives of Central and South
America at the time of the European
conquest, and that despite a plentiful
supply'of gold. Joseph Acosta, in 1610,
tells us the Indians used "none of j
their gold or silver for traffic in or j
buy withal," and unto this day the cus
tom continues among them that In- '
stead of money they use cocoa. The
Aztecs of ancient Mexico also used!
"cocoa" as small change, as many as
8,000 beans being counted legal ten- ?
der. The value of the beans may be
judged from the fact that "a tolerably
good slave" could be purchased for 100

As this is optional with the individual,
