The popular idea that feathers are
a nonconductor of electricity, laboring
under which delusion many people
scary about lightning climb under feath
er beds, even in summer, was exploded
in a very remarkable manner during
a heavy thunderstorm at Chambers
burg, Pa. While the storm was at its
worst ajiolt of lightning struck the cen
ter of the public square and landed on
a rooster, which was running across
the opening. It hit him square on the
head, and, of course, killed him instant
ly, and also burned all the feathers off
his back and sides.

Flamingoes In full plumage arc most
gorgeous birds, for their top feathers
aro almost scarlet, some of those on the
wing are Jet black and underneath sonic
are white, A full-grown bird Is often
from five to six feet In height.
When they aro flying they Btrctch
out their long necks and legs as far as
possible, which makes them look very
funny. This particular kind that you
see here comes from the south of
France and Spain. They make a noise
very like geese.
And they build themselves curious
nests of mud and earth scraped together
so as to form a small hillock with a
hole on the top. Sometimes the hillock
Is as much as 23 or 24 Inches high.
In the countries where they are found
they go about In flocks of 300 or 400 to
gether. When they are feeding senti
nel flamingoes stand at each end of
the flock to give notice of any approach-lng-danger.
These sentinels don't at
tempt to eat till the others have fin
ished, but stand with necks erect and
heads constantly turning, always keep
ing a sharp lookout.
When (lying they form themselves
into bands, each band evidently being
under the command of a leader, and in
spite of their long necks and legs they
are wonderfully graceful.
Like lots of other long-legged birds,
flamingoes love to stand on one leg and
tuck the other up out of sight Phila

William's table manners we.re noto
riously bad so bad that he was face
tiously accused of spoiling the, manners
of a pet coon chained in the back yard.
He gripped his fork as though afraid
it was going to get away from him,
and he used It like a hay-fork. Re
proaches and entreaties were in vain.
His big sister's pleading: "Please, Wil
liam, don't eat like a pig," made.no im
pression upon him. One day William
and his bosom friend, a small neighbor,
dined alone, and William was heard
to say in a tone of great satisfaction
as he planted both elbows on the table:
"Say, Harry, they's nobody here but,us.
Let's eat like hogs and enjoy ourselves."

AN OHIO HOG HOUSE.
It la Neither KInlinrnte Nor Expen
sive nnil Almost Any IlrlKht
Mini Cnn flu I lit One.
I herewith submit plans of my hog
house. The building is 24 by 23 by
11 feet, with a. crib of four feet about
ono and one-hnlf feet above the level,
a ten-foot wagon shed, and the re
maining ten feet cemented and di
vided into as many pens as are want
ed. The cement should be not less
than eight inches above the ground
level, and, If possible, on the south
side of n building, so that sunlight
may be admlcd by windows or
hinged doors or lifts.
A good floor over the pens about
flvo and one-half feet from the cement,
EXCELLENT HOTS HOUSE.
makes a desirable place for surplus
corn or for storage room for Boxes,
barrels, plows, etc. Sliding doors
close the driveway at each end, and
small doors lead from each pen to the
run-ways, which should lead to the
barnyard or farm lane. The pens, when
used for feeding and sleeping, should
be cleaned each day or two, which is eas
ily done with a scoop-shovel. The
troughs should be fastened securely, and
the front of the pen should be hinged to
swing In over the trough, thus keeping
all hogs away until slop Is distributed.
The floor should slope from one and one
half to two Inches in ten feet.
The past year has been very hard on
swine, yet out of 40 head I have lost
but one small shoat, and that was In
jured by the sow. One lot of shoats
were placed In pen on the 20th of Febru
ary, 1902, and were not off the cement
until May 20, when marketed. No floor
to repair, no rat harbors, ease in clean
ing, and good sanitary conditions, make
the cement floor the most desirable.

THE TWO ESSENTIALS.
When n Home In Alllnir Einmlne Ita
Teeth unil, If Possible, Change
When a horse begins to run down in
flesh, eats daintily or not at all, there
are two things that thought should be
given to before resorting to medical
treatment; one Is the teeth; the other
diet, says Farm, Stock and Home. The
"off feed" horse Is often in that condi
tion because he can't eat, and because
he has no desire to eat. He needs a den
tist, and not medicine. If the teeth are
all right, and the horse will not eat, it is
often because he and his feed no longer
harmonize. He may have been given one
kind of feed so long and uninterrupted
ly that he has lost all desire for it; It
has become obnoxious, In fact, and he
cannot eat it. In such cases a change of
diet Is what the horse needs, and not
medicine. Oats are a good and accept
able horse feed, and bread Is equally so
for man, but If the last is substantially
the only feed man has for a long period,
he will reject It to the extent of great
loss of flesh; and under similar condl-
I tions the horse will reject oats. If
r neither teeth nor diet nre responsible
! for the horse's condition, then other
causes must be looked for. But in an as
1 tonishlngly large number of Instances
! the causes named will be found the real
Deun Straw nn n Itntlon.
Whether bean straw is a lit food for
farm animals depends upon the degree
1 of maturity reached by tho plant when
I harvested. In this it is like all forage
crops. Usually the vines aro allowed to
becomo too ripe to make pood feed, in
order that tho beans will fall out easily.
If the vines aro pulled before all the sap
and life have left them they make for
age similar to cowpea hay In character.
As In other cases, the farmer wants to
eat his cake and have it, too. He wants
to "catch 'em comln and gwine." With
corn and oats It is possible to cut before
maturity and have-fairJy good roughage
and ripened grain also. With white
beans it Is not so easy, but a discriminat
ing Judgment applied at the critical mo
ment will doubtless be rewarded by a
crop of beans and roughage more or less
nutritious. Rural World.
tiOmm of l'hnaphorlc Acid.
Apparently ono of the hardest things
for a stockman to understand is that
where livo animals aro Bold from tho
farm tho great manurlal drain is In
phosphoric acid. Tho living ox la
mostly water. In each 1,000 pounds
of his weight thero will be found on tho
average COO poundB of water, 27 of
nitrogen, two only of potash, 21 of
lime, and 10 of phosphoric acid, What
becomes of the potash which the ox
consumes lit his food? It la almost
entirely sent out of tho system in tho
liquid manures. On farms whero
clover Is grown, far more nitrogen
is brought to the farm than the ox
carries away. Therefore, tho chief
drain upon such farms Is In lime and
phosphoric acid, Cor. Rural New

At the foot of the stairs stood a largo
