Lawn. Garden and Orchard—Blood In
Mlllk-Tall and Dwarf Peas-Rice
Lawn Garden and Orchard.—The prac
tice of scattering trees, shrubs and flow
ers promiscuously over the lawn and
door yard may have been justifiable a
generation or two ago, but in this age
those who incline to the beautiful, use
ful and progressive, group ornamental
vegetation so as to give prominence to
the landscape and so that taste and or
der may prevail, writes a contributor to j
the Indiana Farmer. When trees, shrubs,'
etc., are distributed without design over j
the lawn, then we have confusion of the
whole. The center of the lawn needs to
l>e given absolutely to grass. Groups of
shrubbery and ornamental trees will find !
their places on the corners, curves and i
edges ot the lawn while clumps of shade !
trees and vines occupy locations to suit I
the grade <■( the ground. Flowers we;
would collect together in masses by them
selves. By this arrangement we have
a perfect lawn, effective shade and flower
garden all complete in themselves and all :
combining int resting features in the
landscape. We would not stop here but
would carry order right into the veget
able garden and do away with the an- j
cient system of having fruit trees, grapes, '
berry Sushts, flowers, herbs, small !>eds \
anil borders disseminated through the '■
vegetable garden. Such tangled masses
of varied vegetation not only indicates
disorder, but reduces production with an I
liirnense amount of labor. Let us have!
the vegetable ground so the plow and'
cultivator can pass uninterruptedly from ,
end to end, and if we must have straw
berries, trees and berry oushes therein, j
let them be in straight rows so that the
horee can walk lvetween. When making j
the garden let us see to it that those veg
etables that taKe the entire summer to'
mature l>e sown side by side, those that
occupy the ground only the first half ot '■
the summer, by themselves. When
those last mentioned vacate the ground
they w ill leave a compact clearing for a ,
second aop of celery, sugareorn, turnips,'
beans, cabbage, etc. ,
blood in Milk. The presence of blood;
or red blood corpuscles in tha milk is in- j
dicative of disorder of the granular sub-!
stance of the udder, which may be of
various kinds. The globules or small
divisions of the milk glands consist of
vesi- les which contain the globules of fat
that are found in the milk or cellular sub
stance, among which the capillary or ex
cte liugly fine blood vessels ramify very :
closely. As these vesicles break down
and decompose to form the milk, carry
ing with them the fat globules, and are
quickly replaced by new structure, it is
readily perceived that it is very easy for
the capillary vessels, which contribute
through the hlo'nl !>oth the albuminous
matter and the fat globules to form these
vesicles, to discharge blood Odder un
favorable eiicumstances by which any
injury may be done or any excitement of.
the circulation or intlamalory or conges
tive condition may l>e produced. Many
causes may thus contribute to this defect
in the milk, and it is difficult to state, oi j
even guess, what the causes may be. j
The remedy is to soothe and allay the
excited circulation by cooling, laxative
medicine, and emollient and cooling ap-!
plication to the odder. A pound of Ep-.
soin sots is generally useful, and warm .
fomentation of the udder, with a follow-:
ing application of some gentle stimulant,
as camphorated soap liniment.
Don't Stint the Calves. —A calf i" worth '
nearly as much as a cow. Not that it j
will bring as much money, but at a very j
small outlay it will be brought to a cow,;
and if well fed and cared for it will make
a good cow. The best of all grain foods
for a calf is bran, and although the stand- |
ard feeding tables give rye bran a higher <
value than wheat bran, the latter is con- j
siderably the better food. Wheat bran
contains more than three per cent of
sugar, and rye bran less than one per j
cent. Sugar being wholly digestible aud j
easily changed into vital heat, wheat bran
is a good food for young animals in the
winter. At the same price per pound as
corn it is worth twice as much, not only I
for its nitrogen, but for the phosphates it \
contains and which go to make up l>one. j
This is the reason of its high value for j
feeding young stock, colts and pigs as
well as calves. It is a safe food. No one
ever hurt his animals by giving them
too much bran. It has every element of
hay and corn combined, but while it is
good food it should be used juduiousiy.
A calf six or eight months old will do j
well on two pounds daily of it, which, i
costing -' cents, is very cheap feeding. ,
The very best ol" the hay should be re- )
served for the calves, and with bran it |
will cause the young things to grow j
Tall and Dwarf Peas.—There are those
with round and those with wrinkled f
seeds. Tlr.» round seeded are the earliest
ami hardest. A popular variety is Dan
iel O'Rourke, known also as early Ken
tish, and by as many other names as
there are seedsmen, each one of which
has nis Earliest of All, most of which «re
essentially the same. Of the wrinkled
kinds Champion of England is the best
kuown, the standard with which all I
others will t>e compared. The Telephone
is very large and fine. Laxton's Alpha j
is the earliest of wrinkled peas, and very i
satisfactory for miner crops. All of these
need sticks or some kind of trellis for
support, as they grow three feet or more |
iv height. In view of the trouble of pro
curing brush aud staking the taller.
kinds, dwarf kinds are very papular. |
The vines are from 10 to 18 inches high j
and require no staking. The best of
these is the American Wonder, and there |
are numb-rs of others. Some of these
yield their whole crop atone picking.)
and the ground may then be cleared off
for a small garden.
Geese on the Farm.—Any farmer who
lives on a farm situated one-quarter of a
mile or more from neighliors, may keep
a flock of geese with profit. If blessed
with too near neighbors, the geese might
trespass on their gardens or get into their
beau patches or fields of grain when least
expected. Geeee are taught with little
trouble where they must stay, and they
will run in a pasture where there is
plenty of water aud grass, growing rapidly
without other food. The gosliugs will do
better if fed a little corn meal, mixed in
dough and salted, every night and morn
ing until fully feathered. After this
they will get their own living. Geese
may be picked once in six weeks, begin
ning the first of May. They should not
be picked later than October. Goslings
usually sell at *1 a head alive when three
months old. If kept until fall they will
bring $1 and leave the farmer the feath
ers, which will sell for about 50 cents per
pound. This is the estimate where no
extra feed is used. If fed night and
morning for a few weeks before killing
them for market, the geese would, of
course, weigh more and sell at an ad
vanced price. Many women make a bus
iness of raising geese for market, they
get their money much more rapidly and
with less trouble than by keeping hens.
White Cake. — One cup of sugur, one
half cup of butter, one-half cup of sweet
milk, two egg?, one and one-half cups of
flour, one-half cup of cornstarch, one anil
one-half teaspoonf ale of baking powder;
bake in layers and spread with icing
made as follows: Two cups of sugar,
one-half cup of cold water; boil till thick
as honey, pour over beaten whites of
four eggs, flavor and beat till cold.
Keeping Oil Cloth Bright and Glossy.
—Never use soap in the water when
cleansing oil cloth. It fades the colors
and breaks up the paint, Ammonia, also,
is to be avoided, because it gives the
cloth a dull, dead look. If a brush is
used, it should be a soft one. but it is bet
ter not to use any, except in cases where
the oil cloth has been long neglected or
poorly washed for some time previously
Take* a clean flannel cloth and apply
clear wain water, which is finally o be
removed by soakiim it up into tin- wash
ing cloth again, after it has been wrung
out. The oil cloth is then wiped dry
with another piece of clean flannel or
coarse crash. After the oil clo'h has be
come thoroughly dry, apply to it some
warm linseed oil. The housekeeper who
tries this for the first time will probably
use too much, and make the cloth so
sticky that every particle of dust will ,id
here to it. Only a very little is to be
used, and slightly robbed into the cloth,
giving ii a handsome gloss. The linseed
oil will do more harm than good unless
used as sparingly as indicated In the
country skim milk is used instead of oil,
and gives, the cloth a beautiful gloss. Of
course an oil cloth with frequent wash
ings will look old. and the housekeeper
should be cautious about washing when
dusting will answer just as well.
Sweet Pickles.—Eight pounds of fruit,
four pounds of best brown sugar, one
quart of vinegar and one cup of mixed
whole spices, stiik cinnamon, cassia
buds, allspice and cloves; less of the lat
ter than of the former, lie the spices in
a bag, and boil with the vinegar and
sugar. Skim well, then add the fruit.
Cook ten minutes, or till scalded and
tender. Skim out the fruit and put into
stone jars. Boil the syrup five minutes
longer, and pour over lie fruit. The
next day pour off the syrup and boil
down again, and do this for three morn
i»>»3. Keep the bag of Spices in the
Cheese Fondu.— A pint bowlful
minced cheese, which should not Ik- of
a rich kind, the same quantity of bread
crumbs, two well beate.: eggs, half a nut
meg, a teaspoonful of salt. Heat a pint
of milk tailing hot, put i.i it a large Labl.
spoonful of butter, pour the tailing milk
over the other ingredient* and mix well,
cover the bowl with a plate ami set it
back on the range for three or four hoars,
stirring it occasionally, but be careful it
does not cook. Half au hour before sup
per butter a nice pie plate and pour into
it the mixture: set in a quick oven ami
brown, sending it to the <a'"le very hot.
This depends tor its success on being
quite smooth and the cheese all dissolved.
Cream Pie —Scald one pint of milk in
a double lioi!. r. Wet two even table
spoonfuls of cornstarch in a little cold
milk, add the yolks of three eggs and
three tablcspoonfols of su/iir and beat
with an e>;g beater till very light, then
stir into the scalding milk. Flavor with
lemon and let it cool. Line a .pie plate
with a nice crust and bake it. Then till
with the cream and make a meringue of
the whites of tin' two eggs beaten with
two tablespoon**us of powdered sugar.
Cover the top of the pie with this and set
on the upper grate of the oven until the
meringue is a pale straw color.
Prune Pudding. — Scald one pound of
prunes; let them swell in the water till
soft, drain, and exact the stones; spread
on a dish, and dredge with flour; take a
a gill of milk from a quart, st;r into it
gradually eight tablespoonfuls sifted flour ;
beat six eggs very light, and stir by de
grees into the remainder of the quart of
milk, alternating with the batter; add
prunes one at a time, stir all very hard,
1) )il about two hours, and serve with
s uce or cream.
Hints About Squashes. —The crock
necked squashes are not as watery as the
round ones. Select those that are ten
der. If they are not too old you can cut
through the skin with your nail. Wash
them and cut in slices about half an inch
thick, and lay them on a cloth in a steam
er. When they are tender turn them
out into a hot dish and mash them, add

BEPOBTB CONTINUE TO BE MOST
But Only In a Few Instances Has There
Been Any Material Change— The
Change a 1 Round la Looked
For Very Soon. "~~
The general activity in the local mer
chandise markets ha* kept up well dur
ing the week, and reports continue to be
of the most encouraging character, botli
with respect to the expanding volume of
the distributive movement of merchan
dize, and the feeling of confidence that
prevails in nearly all departments. Sugar
and coffee remain firm at quotations.
The market is still stiong, with a good
demand for fruits and vegetables In pro
duce and poultry the market shows more
strength. The wheat and flour market
continues dull and quotations about the
same as reported hist week. The local -
wool market remains dull and nominal
in sympathy with the East.
