as a rule, ami tho Russian peasant is
not particularly afraid of them. True,
ho may bo attacked, when coming homo

can generally get ttieir booty at an
easier prieo than by attacking mujlks.
Tho artist, however, loves to depict

wolf storios are, I am afraid, too often
tho result of Imagination. No book of

two days out from Orenburg. Wo woro

Interpreter. Wo omerged from our cozy
nest of furs and looked around us. A
violent drift-storm was raging, and tlio

decided to send two of tho yemshlks (wo

disabled horses would certainly havo

Alaska is tho favorite homo of tho fur
seal. About tho middle of Jlay thoy
gather on thu various Islands of that in
teresting country in great numbers.
Soon after landing tlio females begin to
lind their young, of which they havo
but one; at great intervals twins. As
soon ns tho little fellow is born on tho
sand ho begins to call for his mother
with :i husky, strnngo voice, like tho
bleating of a lamb. Ilo also begins to
puddle about with his eyes wido open,
evidently looking for refreshments.
The pup for the first tlirco months or so
is black ns jet, with two little whito
spots just back of his forearm. When
first bom they aro about ono foot to
fourteen inches in length, and weighing
from three to four pounds. The mother
never fondles or caresses her offspring,
but leaves It in tho sand with hundreds
nnd thousands of oilier puppies, and
goes nway to tlio sea to bathe and catch
tish for food.
The little puppy docs not oven know
his own mother from any other, but is
so constituted that ho keeps up that
frequent bleating, so that when his
mother returns she instantly recognizes
the voice of her own from all tho rest,
and nur.-es it.
Kariy in August tlio pups begin to
learn to swim, for during tho first fifty
or sixty days of their lifo thoy can swim
about as well as a stone. Somo natur
alists aver that their mothers drive them
down into the water nnd teach them tho
art of swimming. This is not true.
After they havo attained tho ago of six
weeks or two months thoy go of their
own choico down into tho margin of tho
surf, where tho water rushes out over
them, and in turn leaves them on solid
ground. If a puppy happens to bo
washed off his foet and carried out be
yond his depth, ho becomes greatly
alarmed, opens wido his mouth nnd big
eyes, nnd strugglos manfully for the
shoro. Jinny of them nro drowned in
this way. This kind of praetico is kept
up till thu little fellows aro able to
swim in all sorts of wajs, div
ing, twisting, and floating on
their backs till thoy nro completely
tired out, when they crawl out on Iho
Kind nnd curl down for n nap. When
this is done, usually occupying less than
an hour, thuy aro at it again. Tlio
mother nuver takes tho slightest super
vision of her children's swimming or
any thing ele, except to como out ot tlio
sua at intervals and givohim nurse.
About tho middle of October tho pup
pies completely shed their blaek hair
nnd take on a beautiful stccl-grav hair,
with u bright brown under-fur. This is
their sea-going coat. Kariy in winter
they leave Alaska In small squads, and
do not seu land again until their return
tho next May. They go, seemingly by
common consent, to tho south, nnd nro
soon lost in thu vast and wide ocean,
whero thoy spread themselves nut nil
over the North I'acilio from Oregon to
Japan. They rent and sleep in tho
water with thu greatest comfort from
November to May, when those of them
fortunate enough tq cscapo the shaik

Tlio Stout Approved Method of Construct
tuff Highways In 1'ralrlo Cotintrlcji.
Tho improvement of roads has been
discussed time and ue-aln. l'rnm tho
ifact that wcll-ooncorlcd means of mak
ing nnd repairing roads aro not gen-
;crnlly used, tlio condition of prairio
roads in tlio spring and after many
rains is simply horrible. If tho host
queans at command ,.wero used tho clay
underlying our nrairlo sods may bo
made Into good substantial roads, upon
.which n icnin nt any iiiuu oi mo year
'could'cnrry a ton.'oxcopt forafow days,
perhaps, just as tho frost is leaving tho
f;round. Tho proper idea in roail-mak-ng
is not too widu a road-bed, but ono
well and accurately graded and fully
compacted. Onco tho road is made and
J' iropcrly draiued, tho oxpenso of kocp
ng tho whole in repair would bo com
paratively light. Tho llrst cost of
.making an earth road along ovory
quarter-section of land need not exceed
moro I ban fifty cents per aero of land
owned. It Is even claimed possible at a
icost of not moro than twenty cents.
Onco tho roads nro made, tho keeping
them in repair will be morely n nominal
'sum per acre.
i While It is true that a thoroughly
graded earth road will bo a fairly good
ono nt all times of tlio year, it is as true
.that during the dryer seasons it is u
most excellent road if tho grade lias
beon preserved. Iiallast, where It may
b had Is indispensable. When possible,
broken stonu Is host gravol noxt; yet
tho foundation in tho important part,
and in ail prairio roads this must bo tho
natural soil, or rattier the subsoil which
naturally, underlies tho surface.
It Is not to be understood from this
that tho surfaco soil Is to bo excavated
from tho road. Mako your gr&do per
fect, of surfaco and subsoil, and then
lay on your ballast, if lo bo had, say,
eight feet wide and six' Inches deep. It
wil spread pahirally. Then a little
mini may bo added. Rut, because you
liavA no gravol, do not neglect to mako
the best earth road possible, It will
pay. Wwao Tribune,

Three piles aro built together, sido to

feet long nnd 10 cot deep, nnd the threo
havo a oapnclty of 1555 Ions. If two or
ono is all that Is wanted they can bo
built, but If a capacity for moro than ono
isnecded it Is cheaper to build nnothcrof
equal size along sido of tho first than to
build onto tho end, for in tho first caso
but ono long wall nnd two short onos
will bo wnuted, while in tho latter It will
tako two long walls and ono short ono.
Othor silos niiiy bo added as tho nocd
increases by building olio long nnd two
Tho roof for a silo of this plan would
span tho length, and as cacli silo is
added tho roof can bo oxtonded over It.
lly this plan one can build the .first soe
tlon ns a trial silo nnd If satisfactory can
add two withoiitchniigiiighis plan. Tho
walls arc intended to bo built of con
crete ns generally this will bo found
cheaper than stono work.
For convenience of filling tho silo
may be sunk half of Its depth or moro'
In tho earth, where tho situation per
mits lids to bo done with good nnd oasy
drainage. It Is bcitcr not to go deeper
in nuy case than can easily bo drained.
The excavation should bo at least eigh
teen inches beyond Iho proposed wall
for convenience of working, Having
got thobottom leveled, set up standards
of 2x0 scantling 1!) inches npart, against
which Iho boxing planks nro to bo
placed and between theso tlio wall built
up. Cnru should bo taken to havo tho
insldo of the standards next the boxing
straight. To hold tho standards firmly
lu place a lath may bo nailed across tho
under ends, then thoy should bo set
plumb and firmly stay-lathed so that
they will not possibly movo and get out
of plumb. After tlio standards nro all
set about thu proposed wall tlio boxing
planks 1 finches wido can bo put in and
nil Is ready for tho cement.
Tlio first tier on tho bottom of tho
wall should bo made wholly with watcr
limo I'oncretc, us follows: Mix wollono
part of Akron or Rosedalo cement with
tlirco parts of tine sand whilo dry.
Then mix in threo parts of clean gravel;
now mix Into them mortar and place on
a layer of this two or three inches thick,
in the bottom of tlio wall box, and any
rough, irregular stones that may bb

thoy do not como quite out to the
boxing plank. Put in all the stono that
ci bo used, but havo n layer of mortar
huween them; tamp them down solid
so as to havo no spaces In tho wall.
Fill tho boxing to tho top, using a layer
of mortar and a layer of stono alter
nately. After the mortar hns set,
wlilcli will bo in from twelve to twenty
four hours, tlio boxing plank can bo
raised n foot and another layer laid.
Above tlio first layer quick-limo can bo
Used to mix witli tho cement, a3 it is
cheaper. To ono part of cement and
fix of lino sand add, while dry, four
parts of gravel. Have a vat of quick
lime that has been well-slacked under
water for somo days previous to using,
and uso this thin milk of limo to wet up
and mix into mortar the water-lime,
sand and gravel. Thero should bo

If tho silo Is to bo below tho surtaco
and particularly if iho situation is
moist, thu watcr-Unio alono Is best.
In tho top-layer thrce-qtiiirtcr-incli
bolts 21 inches long are imbedded 12
inches in the wall projecting .9 Inches
above and with u thread and nut on tho
upper end and n square bent on tho
loner. Thero should bo onoin tho cen

plates aro placed on tho top of the wall,
having holes through which tho bolts
pass, and tho nuts screwed on. Tho
platos aro framed for short posts 4 or 5
feet long upon which the roof is placed.
The spaco between tho wall and roof is
boarded up excepting such spaco as is
wanted for doors. The doors should bo
double, one hung insldo and tho other
outside. Tho insldo door should bo
hung so ns to close even with tho wall
and felt put between the jams so as to

should bo so made that the spaco be

Tho insido of tho walls of tho silo is
given an even coat of cement thor
oughly troweled down so a9 to bo
smooth, and the bottom Is also cemented
so ns to bo water-tight. Tho concreto
wall will cost about 10 cents per cubio

An Antiquated Cufttom Which Should no
Abandoned Without Deluy.
With a largu part of tho wool-growcra
of tho country tho praetico of washing
thu sheep before shearing has gono out
of use; jet there are many who still
cling to tho ancient way. Is thoro any
merit whatever in tho praetico? Alto
gether too littlo to compensate for tho
cold, disagrccablo job that endangors
tho health of tho men and sheep. Tlio
wool enn not bo so washed while upon
tho sheep as to olivlato the necessity of
further washing; and wlionovor, ns a
rule, it takes two jobs to do what might
bo dono in ono tho cost of doing it is in
creased. Tho washing can also bo dono
cheaper after removing from tho sheep
than before. Then again tho simplo
fact that tho buyers will not pay enough
more for llccco-washcd wool to pay tho
cost of thu work together with tlio
shrjnkngo In weight of thu wool, Is
enough to condemn it.
In moro northern sections the, shear
ing nms bd deferred too long before
thu'watcr gets warm enough to go Into
nnd then son)o tlmo must elapse lieforo
shearing in order that tho wool regain
'its elasticity. It is seldom that a suita
ble piaco can no tounu lor snecp-wasn-ing
and then to reach it many flocks
havo to bo driven a good distance to
and from it over dusty roads, tlo dust
settling in tho damp wool making it af
ter washing almost as dirty as before
If the washing is dono In a pond or
stream that has a muddy bottom but
littlo good is dono to tno wool. VTe
