Hand Cutters Illustrated und Drm-rlbod.
F?r hui vrht ing tlio cor? crop many
devices have beeu proposed during tho
past few years. The most common is tho
sled with ix kuifo or saw attached to tho
side. This is to he hauled along the cot u
row, slicing oft' tho stalks a* it goes. It
is hard to haul und will not work well
when the coru is badly down. Lust year
attention vus culled to u corn harvester
which cuts the corn and loads it into
the xvagon. It is Rncecsaful, hut ospon
sivu and useful only for those who have
large areas to cut.
Rural New Yorker thinks that tho
coming corn harvester will bo utado
somewhat like tho model sketched iu
TUR COMING CORN IIARVESTKR.
tho first cut. There is already a ma
ohine ou the market something liko
this. It is Haid to weigh only .'100
pounds and will cut and hold corn that
stands up well. Instead of tho knife for
cutting, n shurp revolving disk cutting
against U knife edge will bo better.
Ah. corn is still cut iu many sec?
tions by band, tho coru cutlers illus?
trated in the socoud cut may prove sug
gestivo. Fig. 1 shows, a knife which has
tho edge half of the blade corrugated,
crimped, by being passed flatwise be?
tween two ridged rollers when tho
blade is ground to uti edge from one
side only. The resnlt of this is an edge
serrated ami toothed like u saw. hut the
cuttiug edge of euch tooth is smooth
like that of u knife, and the blade call
he sharpened on b griudstono liko any
Imife. The advantage of thin knife is
that it slickn wherever it louche-,, ami
it. cuts too. It requires only half us
much effort to cut it hill of coru with
this cutter as with the smooth cutters.
The foregoing was Originally sketched
und described by Ohi ?> Farmer, authori?
ty also for the cutter shown at Fig. 'i
and especially adapted to down or loan?
ing corn. It is made of an ordinary
heavy back cutter, such us is sold at
hardware stores. The cut will explain
how it is made, tho dotted lines show?
ing the cutter before treatment, tho
I solid lines after treatment. Tho corner
of tho binde should bo cut out with a
cold chisel, and care Bhould I"- laki n
when heating tho horn not to heat the
blade So as lo draw the temper.
Another suggestion (although old to
many, il may he new to Koine) is thut of
cuttiug coru "railroad" fashion or by
going through the first two rows where
the shocks arc to stand nnd trying tho
standards, cutting only the two rows iu
which they are tied, then taking a sin?
gle row on one side und going tho whole
length of tho row, stopping at each
shock to set up the armful cut between
the shocks, tin u going hack on the other
side of thi row of shocks the .-atno way
and so on till all the rows are cut. Tin
last row cut, tho shocks are tied. In
cutting this way tho work is all straight
ahead, and corn c:ui be cnt faster by
this method than by cutting one shock
at u time.
From the Mississippi Station comes u
report of three years* experiments con?
ducted at tho Ocean Springs substation
for the prevention of tomato blight.
Tho experiments consisted in soil treat?
ments in the field and bed, und spraying
tht? plants with well known fungicides.
Rased on a year's experience, tho author
thinks that whether the blights of to?
matoes, potatoes and watormelous are
identical or not they are not easily com?
municated from one crop to another un?
der the ordinary field conditions. Tho
author presents tho following tentative
l. In preparing compost for the seed
bed and cold frame use u liberal amount
of lime, kainit, ashes or other potash
salt. This will give good, stiff Stemmed,
Btocky plants, which are better able to
resist blight. A few days before sow?
ing the seed sprinkle the bed thoroughly
with strong bordeaux mixture und rake it
in. is. After the plants aro sot in the. field
add paris green to the bordeaux mixture
and continue to spray at intervals of ten
days or two weeks until the fruit is hulf
grown. Care must bo exercised in spray?
ing after the fruit is set. as it is more
easily injured than is the foliage. 4.

Hud no bettor exhibition tluui in fur- |
nisJied by tln< shepherd dogs of Arizona ,
und New Mexico. Over in tho Sun !
Simon country, out where I live, a 1
friend of mine hns a sheep rauch. I
j wan on a visit to his docks one ihty.
Thorn are men with the sheep, but all
I day long, while the hunches aru out
grazing, they are entirely under tho
care of dogs. The dogs take tho Hooka
out in the morning aud tiring them
back at night.
"Ono Hook which I visited was in
charge of four dogs, a mother aud hor
three pups. Of cottrso tho young dogs
wore full grown aud as big us their
parent, yet they yielded her great def?
er .Mice, and perfect obedience, and it
was clour that she was uol only tho
head of the family, but ill supreme com?
mand of the Hock. My friend told mo
that sometimes the pups grow lazy ami
wouldn't half do their duty. The Uli ither
dog would remonstrate with growls and
attempt to compel them to be alert and i
industrious. As the Uoek was grazing
along the pasturage, a handful of sheep
might point mil frouioueside and begin
to stray from the main buueh. The
pups would not leu it, but, being listh^s
and iuditt'orout, made no sign of going
aftor the doliuquonta. The old dog
would oiler a few short admonitory
yelps, which was her way of ordoring
her childeron to turn in those stray
sheep. If I hey dallied itloilg, neglect?
ful of their plain duty, .after that the
old dog would suddenly land pollllioll
upon one of the offenders, and, seizing
him by thu nape of the nook, give him
a prodigious slinking up.
"After being punished, tho lazy pup
would hie after the sheep and turn
them lraek to the (lock and proceed to
its duty with tbo utmost ardor. The old
dog had to whip her pup-, about three
times a week, however, t0 gOl perfect
work. She v,;i.s very strict with Ihoill,
being a COUSCioiltioUS dog, who felt her
responsibility to her master.
"Those sheep wore conIInod ill a wire
corral nights to keep them from going
abroad ou moonlight occasions und tail?
ing a prey to coyotes. Thore were 5,000
sheep in tho bunch, About early dusk
each eveuiiig thu old dog and her pups
would bring in tbo flock and turn them
through thu bars into the corral. Tboy
1 could do it all except put up tho bars.
Just OS the lirst of the Hook approached
j the corral the old dog would trot around
! to the front aud take her patient stand
by the bars and review the flock as it
tiled into the corraL Yet), sir. She was
counting the sheep. If one worn missing
from the whole 5,000, she would know
it the moment tbo last entered tho cor?
ral. She would give a yelp of criticism
and lead her pups out upon tbo dark
pastures to find that lost sheep. And
they had to lind it. Sho would work
them all night if need he. Ordinarily
they could hunt it out at OUCe, und then
the four dogs would bring iu the truant
on the rnu with much clamor anil bark?
ing, as if to loach it not to lag again. "
"Up in New Jersoy," observed Jack
I Mm ray, who had heard thu abovu, "we
have a couple of dogs on our farm. Ono
is a small Scotch n ri ior and tbo other a
giant Newfoundland. They uro fairly
good friends, aud one of their most
pleasant exercises?to them i-t least?is
to lio out iu the front yard and rush
down to the gates aud bark at overy
wagon and carriage that goes by. They
never omit this vociferous ceremony
and S00IU to derive great joy from it.
"The other day tbo terrier was repos?
ing on the grass. It was midday and
h it, and tho torricr wrta at rest. Sud?
denly the Newfoundland came upon tho
seen'- with n luscious hum bono iu his
mouth. For tho v< ry evident purp 'se of
annoying the little terrier, Jack, tho
Newfoundland, spread himself along
tho grass with his ham bone, not four
foot from tho terrier's sensitive uoso.
Then he procee ded in uu audible and
uuctuous manner to gnaw the ham bono.
It was maddening to tbo bam UOUolCSS
torrier. At last ho timidly approached
his old friend Jack.
" ' Would Jack object if hn nibbled this
very excellent and aromatic ham bone
with him?' That wiw about what tho
"Jack ceased mumbling thu bone
long enough to show all his white teeth
und growl thunderously. Ho objected,
hike many other rich puoplo, Jack was
selfish, and did not propose to divide
his ham bone with the poor.
"The terrier drew back, and thou, ns
if unublu to bear the Bight of .lack's ham
bono, ill which ho hud no part, bo saun?
tered around thu corner of tho bodge to
the driveway. Hero he was out of sight
of the miserly Jack, licking his bone.
" Without word or warning the ter?
rier, tho moment hu was hidden from
view, began to split thu heavens with
his barkings. Clearly u carriage was
OOmiug, and from the uproar of the ter
riur Juck thought it must bo a coach
and six. Tho rnso caught him. He
sprang up, and, leaving tho ham bone
i for thu instant, came surging around
1 tho hedgo to buy thu couch and six. But,
ulas, ull was vacant. There was no
I coach uud six. Not eveu a handcart
was iu sight. Jack stood a moment in a
ii.de of daze. Then hu suddenly recalled
his unguarded ham bone, aud a great
uneasiness gripped him. Hu rushed back
to tho rescue. But ho was too lato. Ho

oises for tho whole body. It rounds out

tho foot, which is a sort of nutnral
springboard, tho runner takes a longer

and repeat tho stride more quickly than
tho runner who goes flat footed. As
length aud rapidity of stride are what

Tho second point for a runner to ob?
serve is his method of breathing.
Breathe through both the nose and |
mouth. Nearly every boy, when he lirst
begins to run, has the insane idea that
all the breathing must bo done through
the no. e. There w as never a greater
mistake. Breathe through the nose in
ordinary life as much as possible, but
when you uro running or exercising vio?
lently open the mouth and take in air
in deep, rapid breaths, not gulping it.

tho body slightly from the hips, for if it i

How to Economize In Lampt.
Save much trouble and got more light
out of lamps by taking cure of lamp
wick.s. The first object to he attained
toward getting a well lighted lamp is
to get a freo flow of oil. Tho wick
should la) held by tho Uro and thorough
ly. dried before using. By this menus it
will quickly absorb the oil, and tho
flow is not impeded. Anothorway i.s to
soak tho wick in vinegar nnd thou dry
It thoroughly. This provouts smoking.
' Oil will not flow throufik a dirtv wick.
nnd without a good U?w there, is little
light. Foul wieks should bo washed or
lud li d iu uoft wuter und soup, thou
rinsed and well dried. Tho reservoir of
tho lamp should always bo kopt tilled.
If the oil is low, tho flow is imperfect,
and the \wok becomes charred. Tho
lauip will (lieu givo a poor light and
emit a disagreeable smell. A little at?
tention to lamp wicks in tho first in
sttuice will savo a groat deal of trouble

Select u nico fat mackerel, wash and
soak overnight. As this is best for
lunch, change tho water in tho morning
and keep it in a cold place. One hour

belly piece. Chop fine 2 pieces of celery,
sufficient parsley to make 2 tablespoon
fulri, mix this with half a cup of crumbs.

of cayenne. Fill this in the thin part of
tho mackerel, fold it together, und place
it in a baking pan. Dust with popper
and pnt iu thu pan about half a cup of
water. Bake in u quick oven 80 min?
utes. Basto at least twice. Dish and
cover with tomato sanco.
