"" Feeding Horses by Clock Work.
Nearly two years-ago, as I had agreed
to feed the horse of a relative at five
o1 clock a. m.f so that the animal would
ho ready for service at half-past six,
and as the stable was located at a distance
of half a mile from my residence,
I constructed a rude hut ellicient device
"to aid in feeding the horse precisely
at five o'clock every morning without
the presence of any person (not patented
nor patentable.) At one side of tne
stall, I hung a lid with hinges over the
"top of the small feed manger. One
end of the lid extended about a foot into
the feed room. To make the end
of the lid in the feed room heavy
enough to go down and thus open the
manger, a piece of iron was attached
to the end of the lid making that end
in the feed room about one pound heavier
than the part of the lid that covered
the manger. An alarm clock was then
placed in a eupbard, fastened to the
side of the wall in the feed room, and
a half inch hole was bored up through
the bottom of the cupboard and through
the bottom of the clock case directly
beneath the large wheel of the alarm
gearing. Then a small wire, about as
large as a coarse horso hair, was attached
to the heavier end of the lid to
the manger, while a long loop was
made at the other end of the wire. At
evening I fed the horse his evening
meal in his proper manger, and putting
the mess for morning in the other
maufrer, the looped end ot the wire was
put through the hole in the bottom of
the clock case, and the loop was hooked,
on one of the teeth or cos of the large
wheel. The wire was made just long
enough to hold up the heavier end of
the llcl in a horizontal position, thus
closing the manger. The moment the
alarm wheels started, at five o'clock,
the wire loop slipped off the cog and
the lid of the manger opened and 3tood
erect, so that the horse could eat. This
rude device never failed to open the lid
precisely at the appointed hour. I could
feed the horse with absolute certainty
at any other hour, though I were two
hundred miles away from the stables
One clock would open half a dozen lids
as well as one. Sereno Edwards Todd,

A real estate dealer in New England
c sold seven iarms in ten days at prices
averaging about 3,000 each mostly to
persons who had been in mechanical
business, but. who had learned that there
is improperly so' safe as' land, aril no
pursuit promising, so sure a 'livelihood
as agriculture. It is an indication of a
general and wholesome tendency of the
time. There are always thousands of
men in these busy streets who loft rural
Glomes many years ago, and who,--
weighed down by commercial troubles,
would gladly return, if it were possible,
to some quiet country neighborhood,
feeling sure that they could at
least enough to feed their families
with less strain of body and mind than
that which is now wearing out their
' lives. This is true also of every other
city or town, as witness the following
a fair sample of letters that reach us
from all quarters:

Dk. B. J. Kendall & Co., Gents: In reply to
your letter 1 will say that my experience with
r Kendall's Spavin Lure' has been very satisfactory
indeed. Thiee or lour years ago 1 procured
a bottle ol youi agent, and with It, cured
a hoi so ol lameness caused by a spavin. Last
season my horse became very lame and I
turned him out for a lew weeks when he became
better, but when 1 put him on the road
he grew worse, when I discovered that a
was foi ming, I procured a bottle of Ken-dell's
Spavin Cure and with less than a bottle
cured him so that he is not lame, neither cun
the bunch be found. Respectfully yours.

B.J. Kendall fc Co., Gents: In justice to
you and myself, I think I ought to let you
know that I have removed two bone spavins
with 'Kendall's Spavin Cure,' one very large
oue, don't know how long the spavin had
been there. 1 have owned the horse eight
months. It took me foiu months to take the
large one off aud two for the small oue. I have
used ten bottles. The horse is entirely well,
not at all stinVand no bunch to be seen or felt.
This Is a wonderful medicine. It is a new thing
here, but if it does Tor all what it has done for
me its will be very great.
Respectfully yours, Chas. E. Pakkek.
