CHICKENS IN KANSAS.
Tlie editor oC the Indiana Fanner
ha lceu roaming nrounil s6inctrli.it in
Knut-us lately, nmi while doing ho lias
apparently been struck with ail idea
that has many times occurred to the
writer in regard to the chicken busi
ness. He writes to his jiaper.the fol
lowing, which is well worth consider
ing by tt Rood many people who are,
jx-rhaps, not making as nmcli of n liv
ing an they ought to :
"Often and again, as we looked out
upon the dry, sunny Mopes of Kansas,
on our recent trip, wo remarked:
'What a country for raiding chickens
"and turkcya ! ' And when wc learned
of the large aud increasing demand
for poultry and eggs in the mining re
gioiii, and the high price tliat arc
naid. we resolved to commend the
matter to thof.c of our lady readers
who arc thrown on their own re
sources, and are asking what they can
do to make a living. There h no kind
of liiirinesh, in our estimation, in which
an enterprising lady with small cipital
ran succeed mure certainly aud rapid
ly in accumulating .in independent
support thau upon ehirken-raising in
southern Kansas. Our ronson arc
Firkt, hcallhfiilnccs; tlioro need he no
disease among fowls raised on the
dry.idoplng lands of this section. The
pip, roup, cholera aud other chicken
ailments would he practically un
known, with anything like proper care
and attention. Second, feed; the
millet, sorghutn, Doura, wheat, etc.,
ran bo grown there even in the ilrycst
ci:mou. and with the iusoclx, and
grasshoppers, if they should appear,
would make abundance of the best of
food at a tnrro nominal cost, the la't
nnined items especially. Third, mar
krln; egg rule higher near railroad
stations there thau witli us and chick
ent sell from 75 cents to $1 each at the
mine. When the bii-iness of poultry
raising is carried on systemmatically,
aud poultry shipping is done in a
wholesale way, the freight will be so
reduced that the raiser will gel 'at least
two-thirds of the price paid at the
milieu tor his produce.
"In starling in the business it will
not be necesxary to buy the laud. This
can be rented for n tritle, and no fcuc
iug will be required. The principal
expense will bo for dwelling houc and
sheds for protection at night. A
north-east slope should bo selected, so
as to avoid the force of the south-west
winds, which are very strong at times,
aud might blow the chicks so fur they
could not get back to the roosting
plHco by night. We heard it said that
the wind blows the feathers oil the
chickens sometimes; hut that is only
one of the many jokes that are In
vogue about the 'Kansas zephyr."

APPLICATION OF MANURES.
Some time since wo had quite a cor
respondence with a very intelligent
farmer ou the subject of the applica
tion of immure. Not many years ago
sue i a subject would have been con
sidered almost a useless one, for it was
thought that anyone knew how to
manure their lauds; but now the ob
servant, enterprising farmer is not
satisfied to take the old, beaten track
when ho has n reasonable assurance
that there arc newer and better roads
to travel, merely requiring entcrpriso
and experiment to demonstrate it.
Very much depend, in applying ma
nure, on the quality aud kind of the
soil,a well ns.ou the crop tobc grown
on the ground, which is the best aud
most profitable way. The old plan of
applying manure (wc are speaking
here .principally ofMable manure) was
to fpread it broadcast on the ground
before plowing. In the course of
plowing it was covered Hivnrnl inches
below the surface, and when the corn
was planted ii had to grow consider
ably before the, plnuts .were strong
enough to 'send their roots down to
ihn manure. Ily broadcasting, after
plowing, especially when done late in
the spring, considerable was lost by
evaporation, and if there was any
coarse nmteriul or trash in the ma
il lire, it was always in the way. The
heaviest com crops wc ever saw raised
were on a farm where the owner al
ways plowed the piece intended for
corn very late in the fall, and during
the winter lie hauled on tho intinure
and broadcasted it. In the spring
sharp harrows were run over the piece
two or three times and the corn plant
ed. Ily applying the manure in this
way, the soil had, by tho time tho com
was planted, absorbed all of the valu
able properties of the manure, and the
corn could commence to grow Irom
the start, having a supply of fertiliz
ing material to feed it the whole sea
son. It is a great mistake at least
our experience, has so demonstrated
to cover up the, manure deeply, for it
will work itself down into the soil
quickly enough, aud usually with but
little loss by evaporation, etc. Taken
nil In all, surface immuring is more de
sirable, aud profitable than plowing it
under. There may be exceptionable
cases on both sides which may be used
by way of argument ; yet an extended
experience has convinced us of tho
facts on which our assertion is ha'cd,
and we hope the doubting ones will
experiment, even though on a very
small scale, to show themselves that
new waj s may be better than old ones,
ami may aUo be considerably more
profitable. Western Plowman.
Now, a vcryjarge proportion of tlie
work of farm hones ii not heavy and
hard work; not bo hard but that au
average-sized horse is able to do it.
Ordinary flowing Is not heavy work
for n well kept team of fair-sized
hordes. Harrowing, and cultivating
com arc light work on animals so far
as draft' is "concerned. The most .fa
tiguing part of this kind of work Is
traveling over the 6oft ground, and
the heavier a horse Is, beyond a rea
sonable limit, the harder this kind of
work is on him-
Then, there is a great deal of work
about a farm that is light work, and
such as n light, active animal will er
form much better than a very large
and more clumsy one. Drawing light
loads about the premises, going to and
from the market towu, and mauy la
bors that require action rather tbau
If one will note the difference be
tween tlie movements of a very large
horse and one of average size, he will
sec n marked difference In caso of ac
tion and sprlghtliness of gait. Com
pare two stallions: The heavy one
goes along slowly, carelessly, leisurely,
fctriking every little rise in tho ground
with his feet, and paying little atten
tion to anything. The light horse
moves more gracefully, is more in a
hurry, wntclies every other horse in
sight, and is always ready for play.
The same characteristics arc secu in
geldings equally well kept.
A team or great, clumsy .horses is
good for a transfer wagon In a city,
One of such animals handles a dray or
cart about a depot to perfection. Hut
when it comes to light work in wag
ons, carriages and buggies, or for go
ing under the saddle, such horses arc
not n hat one needs. Active, nimble-
footed animals are better there. Aud
there is so much of the lighter work
required on the farm, and so little of
the really heavy, that our prcfereuce
for a farm horse is decidedly in favor
of the lighter, more active nml cner
A large, well-made marc bred to a
small, sprightly, ambitious stallion will
produce a better farm horc than a
small marc bred to n very largo stall
ion. Kansas Farmer.
TREATMENT OF A COLD.
The old proverb, "feed a cold aud
starve a lever," is a mischievous fal
lacy ; for with .1 cold there is always a
fever, and the cold cannot get well un
til the fever subsides, and the fever
will not readily subside while the food
supply is kept up.
Warmth and abstinence arc tho best
remedies for colds, and should be ap
plied promptly to injure favorable re
sults. Warmth keeps the pores of the
skin open, thus relieving the system of
the surplus secretions which oppress
it; abstinence cuts off the supply of
material which makes phlegm, which
would otherwise be roughed up, thus
rasping the throat and irritating the
air passages, if not laying tho founda
lion for disease? of tho throat and
lungs, which arc liable to endure to
the close of life.
The moment a person is satisfied ho
has taken cold, let him do four things:
First, take a foot bath as warm as it
can bo comfortably borne, letting the
feet remain in tho water ten to fifteen
minutes; second, go to bed In a com
fortable room nud cover up well;
third, cat nothing; fourth, drink as
much cold water as ho wauts, and as
much hcib tea as he can conveniently
In threo eases out of four ho will be
well in thirty-six hours; but as the
system is sensitive, for a while after
the treatment, care should bo taken
not to contract a new cold.
If a cold is neglected for two days,
it will gcncrallv run its course of
about two weeks In spite of any treat
ment; the cough does not commence
until a day or two after tho cold is
taken, thus giving tlie cold throe or
four days to becomo fixed in Uie sys
tem; nnd just here is the startin
point of a multitude of diseases. The
secretions arc checked, the natural
functions of tho body nro weakened,
aud thcrp is Ilttio resistance to dis
ease; hence the liability to rheuma
tism, congestions that end in consump
tion, and that disease so fatal after
middle age pneumonia.
When a cold becomes seated, then
the only safo plan is to place yourself
on the "sick list," nud remain in tho
house until health is completely re
stored. Hall's Journal of Health.
URGE OR SMALL HORSES.
Oue of our correspondents pro.
pounds i pertinent question for dis
cussion, as to whether large horses aro
belter for farmers than small ones.
Wc suppose he means to apply his
q nest ion to horses for uo on farms,
not merely 10 tint matter of raising
horses for alc.
Wc hare, 'no bfacy for overgrown
animals of any kind. They serve no
good purposo any where except, jvossi
bly. In the way satisfying curiosity.
Nor do wo like very large horses ou a
farm, and especially in n prairie coun
try. I .dirge and heavy horses aro-bct-ter
for mhiip kiuds of work even on n
farm than small ones, such, for in
stance, ns operating a threshing ina
ctaine, drawing reapers,' gang plows,
etc This kind of work "Is heavy,
steady draft, and heavy ,stcady ani
tualt arc ,bct for It. llt'il grain-cutting
lasts only a few days on Kansas
farms; the same I true of threshing.
Gang plows aro not found on many
Kansas farms, and, If they were, thirty
Jrtffyi ta a.jar -would icovcr all the
time ef theinusc. In any case ferty
. tdy would probably cover all the
1 'time f Ihk peculiarly heavy work.
Tbefl there would be eight days of
enUMkry work, to oho of heavy draft.

IT IS A SCIENCE.
One of tho astounding things con
nected with the live-stock business,
says the Pittsbnrg Stockman, is tho
vast diflerenec in results which differ
ent men will reach in feeding. It is
frequently the case that feeders who
are apparently situated alike in the
matter of facilities, etc , will come out
so widely apart in summing up a year's
work that they would seem to have
been engaged in totally dissimilar
lines of business. These things arc
often matters of asiouishmout. Every
observer knows that they do exist, but
it is sometimes a puzzle to tell why
they should exist. One man will make
plenty of money where auothcr will
lose, while circumstances will favor or
.".jwii on both alike. The difference is
in the men their energy, their melh
ods, their knowledge of what they are
doing, their painstaking looking after
details, and their personal manage
ment. Xo one of these things would
seem to be sufficient to account in
itself fur profit or loss ; but combined
they are fully enough to cover the
widest range of variation in results.
Feeding is a science, aud he who
would follow it most successfully must
master all of its details. It is a splen
did occupation in which to show the
possession of brains and experience.
Do not be afraid of bringing into it
loo much of talent or of education it
affords room for the excraisc of the best
mental training nnd common sense.
MILK VS. ALC9HBL.
Joliu D. Mead, in an address before
the Vermont Dairymen's Association,
said lie would like to impress it upon
the mind? of his hearers that alcohol
which hass been so popular as a medi
cine, boll: among physicians and pa
tients, Is greatly inferior as food aBd
tnodicJna to, milk either iwnoie or
skimmed. Alcohol lowers the temper
ature of the body food raises it. Of
two men starting out on a journey,
one taking a drink of alcohol mad the
other. .drink of milk, it is perfectly
sure which will hold out best on a
cold day. Vulternillk and Rklmroed-
milk cheese, If used freely by overfat
ncrsons in ulaco of starchy food and
sugar, will reduce tticir tat ana in
crease the muscular' system. It w a
great deal better for this parpoee
any medicine, lie spate severely
against the action of the New York
city board of health, who bad pre
scribed the- sale of sfciMRe4 milk la
New York. The Babies of that great
city are' atervlag to death by thes-
