AGRICULTUKAL.
: A PLAN FOR THE RECLAMATION OF
PEAR AND PEACH TREES.
I The Effect of Too Much Pepper in the
Fowl's Food—Bisulphide of Car
bon as an Antiseptic—A
Model Barn-yard.
Very cold weather does not injure
stock ms much as dampneea. A mod
erately cold day, with a driving rain
storm, causes more illness to ttock,
tkan severe cold on a dry, clear day.
The tlower-bed for the next year
may be nude very rich by scattering
the sweepings of the poultry-house
over it. Bonpsnda may also be well
utilized by throwing them on the
Bower beds.
If the bulbs of certain ilowers start
to sprout while in the cellar ie indi
cates that they are kept too warm.
They should keep cool enough to re
main in a dormant condition until
npring. Sprouting injures .them.
The object of the farmer in feeding
animals through the winter should be
for profit. Feeding stock to gain ;i
profit from is a nice point, and re
quires study and attention. It is not i
enough to feed a sufficient quantity, l
but the feed must be of such a nature
as is best for accomplishing the ob
ject e>f feeding.
Bisulphide of carbon is one of the
best and cheapest antiseptics and in
secticide*. Already more than 8,000,
--000 pounds of it are used annually to
check the ravages of phyloxera, the
i-courge of European vineyards. Bi
sulphide of carbon has an extrpmely
offensive odor, and is highly inflam
mable and explosive.
Feeding pepper often to fowls as a
regular appetizer is a bad practice.
Although a very little will elo no harm,
yet the continued use of the condi
ment is liable to cause liver complaint.
Warm feed tends to have the same
etimulating effect without possessing
the injurious qualities of the cayenne.
The only way to make roosts is to;
make them on a movable frame, that I
may be taken out of doors, there to
be scalded with boiling water in which,
is a little cm !e carbolic acid. Mak« j
the roosts ail on a l;vel and not more
than two feet high, thereby prevent-;
ing much quarreling and the bumble i
foot.
Why more men do not make the
dairy pay is because they refuse to be
i lieve th<it there is any study or inves
tigation needed in regard to the care,
treatment and management of the
dairy. If they chance en a success
they call it luck, and if they fail they
never investigate the matter to see
wherein they tail, to as to steer clear
of a repetition.
The kind of feeding that keeps a lot
of pigs or stockeM from threo to six
months without grain is a total loss
of graiu; also, a loss of time in the
maturing of the animals. That is
s.iiftless feeding that carries a lot of
hogs rough winter on one cl.iss of
feed. The need of variety brings them
to the boneyard when grass is almost
in Bight.
A farmer with considerable exper
ience who has siloed clover for two
years, says if it should be left to wilt
oh the ground for two hours after cut
ting, and each day's rilling of thu silo
be allowed to heat before the fresh
cover is added, and the sides, not the
Center, kept thoroughly tramped, the
clover will come out moist and green,
and the cattle will relish it as
thoroughly as summer pasture.
To make pullets trot along toward
maturity with a wonderful accelerated
pace, give them every morning a
warm feed of bran and shorts and
ground oats mixed up with milk, or
meat stock in which is a little salt. At
noon give a feed of meat, and at night
all the wheat they will oat and a little
left to scratch for the next day. In ad
dition to this provide green food,
crushed bones and pure water, and
give eacli day one heavy feed of brok
en dishes; they will be eaten with
avidity.
Freezing of the food and water will
be one of the difficulties this winter
as usual. The troughs become ice
bound and the soft food freezes rap
idly when the weather is severe. In
such cases it is best to water the 8 ock
at intervals rather than to keep water
in the troughs. If you have no ar
rangement for warming water, try the
plan of a Western farmer, who heat*
stones and drops one in the trough
when the water is pumped in. It is
better, however, to warm the water,
using a boiler or steam-pipe, and if
there is a large number of animals ii
will pay to do so.
A person who has some old pear
trees that have about run out, asks
advice of Popular Gardening and re
ceives the following: Try the plan of
digging a shallow trench, say one foot
deep, six to eight feet away from th«
body of the tree, and throwing into
this a liberal supply of sod i, leaf mold,
ashes, lime and manure and covering
with earth, and then cut away all dead
limbs and give the body and limbs a
good coat of whitewash. We have
seen old peach trees renewed beyond
belief by this process.
In some cases a large barnyard
might well be divided into two or
more smaller ones for different classe
of live stock. A fruitful source of lost
is the keeping of weak animals with
vigorous ones; young with old;
horses with cattle, sheep and hog*.
By letting one set of animals out of
stables or pens at one time and another,
it may be possible to get along with >
single yard, yet the best plan, whet'
much stock is kept, is to have several
yards.

RELIGIOUS AND EDUCATIONAL.
—We dote upon this world as if it
were never to have an end; and we neg
lect the next as if it were never to have
a beginning.— Fenelon.
—The Japanese Government has In
stituted a college for women, with
English professors, and put it under the
control of a committee of English wo
men for six yeara.
—The safest way to stay the progress
of wrong is to advance the right. Every
direct attack upon the wrong, by the
right, imperils the right by inviting a
counter-attack upon itself.
—No way has been found for making
heroism easy, even for the scholar.
Labor, iron labor is for him. The world !
was created as an audience; the atoms \
of which it is made, are opportunities.
! — Emerson.
—Doctrine serves to gather humanity
Into the various folds, according to
their individual convictions; but the
\ actual worship flows from each through
but one channel, finding equal accept
ance from a loving God.
—"I will pive you an orange, Wil
lie," said a famous English Freethinker
to a little boy, "if you can tell me
where God is." "And I will give you
two," replied the boy at once, "if you
| can tell me where He is not."—liar
\ per's Young People.
—The Ten Commandments were given
to the people some thousand years ago
for their moral advancement, and the
Sermon on the Mount is nearly 2,000
years old; and still it is hard work for
, nearly more than half of the people of
civilization to give them more than cas
ual observance.
—One of the most important imngs
that the Christian can do, says the N.
Y. Independent, for the culture of his
own piety is to acquire the habit of
systematically and devoutly reading
and studying the Bible. By this habit
, he will "grow in grace" by growing
"in the knowledge of our Lord and
Saviour Jesus Christ" The more he
reads the Bible the more precious will
It become in his experience.
—How lonely the mother feels when
for the first time her boy shows that he
feels too big to be kissed! As they be
gin to feel like little men, too many
boys thing that any show of affection
on their part is babyish; they are afraid
of being called "girl-boys" or milksops.
Just as if a man is ever more manly
than when he loves and protects the
mother who loved and protected him
through so many helpless years, Such j
a boy is sure to grow into the man who !
takes such good care of his wife. — Rural
New Yorker.
WIT AND WISDOM.
—"One man's conduct may lead a
host into a snare; beware how you fol
low man; the prudent man looketh well
to his going."
—Why is it that, whenever you are \
looking for any thing, you always find '
It hi the last place you look? The
reason is because you always stop look-

BULL AND PYTHON.
Story of a Fight to the Unath in the
South African Mountain*.
Lust Sunday week one of the most
remarkable scenes on record is report
ed as having been witnessed in the vi«
cinity of Table mountain. A troop of
cattle, consisting- of twelve cows and a
patriarchal old bull, were grazing on
one of the plateau-like spurs of th«
mountain, which is surrounded OB
three sides by precipitous ravines, and
on the fourth side, that nearest the
mountain, by dense bush. Some na
tives higher up the mountain were at
tracted by the sudden bellowing; of th«
cattle, and saw two enormous pythons
coming out of the bush and making for
the cattle, which had drawn themselves
up in a compact group with the bull al
its head. As the pythons drew near the
animals gradually backed until they
stood on a small space that jutted out
over a tremendous precipice.
At this stage a sudden rush was made,
but only one heifer succeeded in escap
ing, The other cattle, bellowing most
piteously, gradually backed, and one
by one fell over the precipice till final
ly the bull only was left. He suddenly
charged at the big python transhxing
the reptile on his horns, but the sec
ond snake seized the bull in its folds
and, having its tail around a huge
boulder, commenced to crush the bull,
which, moaning piteously, struggled
frantically to escape. The tail of the
python lost ita hold of the rock, but
the larger snake, which had slipped off
the horn, lapping its tail around a
smaller boulder opposite the one the
other snake had just released, seized
the bull and compressed the animal in
its scaly fold. The other python suc
ceeded in regaining its former position,
and the bull was literally suspended
in mid air by the snakes. The whole
scene looked like some ghastly tri
umphal march. The snakes were evi
dently getting the best of the poor
brute, which was bleeding profusely,
when, by a sudden effort, his struggles
forced both reptiles to loose their hold
of the rocks and the whole three were
hurled into the ravine beneath.
The cattle were found on the first
ledge of the precipice, all being dead,
but the bull and the pythons had
bounded from ledge to ledge, and were
found 400 leet below the scene of the
fight. The bull was merely a mangled
mass and the snakes were greatly
mutilated, the larger one having the
vertobrse broken in nine places. Tho
pythons, which were of the rock
species, male and female, measurea
respectively 40 feet 3 inches and 36
feet 9J inches.— Katal Witness.
