the winter. They require just such

i for the same reason it is nilvlsable
to scatter their grain ration in chaff
or other litter, and make them
scratch for it.
Very little Is gained by grinding
grain for fowls, beenue in eating
soft food the birds are unable to
make seltvllon of kind, but must boH
the whole, wet or dry, and take the
consequence, even though they be
condemned as worthless for not pro.

owner's judgment perhaps is tlio
very thing they need in order to
make them lay well. Added to this

CAT'S sir

Crowded la Between Two Cob
tented Hens.
Ordinarily a cat's fondness foi
ehlckeu costs, its whole nine lives,
but at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C.
ltelndl, 10S Chicago street, Kenosha,
Wis., there was, not long ago, a black
cat so fond of these fowls that it
slept every night on n board perch,
crowded in between two contented,
sleepy hens. The animal) two years
old, lost alt her nocturnal habits of
prowling, going to he'd with the
chickens and wnklng tip at cock crow
every morning.
More than a year ago Tablthn took
tip with the chickens. The little ones
were afraid of her in the beginning,
but gradually they became recon
ciled to a foster sister. They even
censed to struggle when on occasion
Tnbltha would pick one of them up
with her teeth, kitten fashion, and
carry it across the yard.

Nebraska Farmer Who Sought Wife
Thronah a Newspaper and

A Chicago paper not long since re
ported the sorrows of a Nebraska
farmer, who had been duped -by a
confidence woman at an expense of
about $1,000. The farmer answered
an advertisement in a Omaha paper
which stated that a young and beau
tiful woman sought a husband with a
good home. Several letters were ex
changed and at the solicitation of the
would-be bride $300 to be expended
for a diamond ring was forwarded by
the farmer. After on epistolary

AMONG THE POULTRY
By having nil the internal arrange
ments of the poultry house mo ruble,
they can be taken out if desired when
cleaning the house.
There Is one economical result In
poultry-keeping that is often lost sight
of. namely, the large amount of waste
food that the fowls pick up.
One of the best ways of removlmgllce
from fowls is to let themtodoil them
selves by having a lot of dry earth
where they can dust themselves when
ever they feel like It.
To keep down lice, oil the roosts and
their supports every two or three
weeks with kerosene or carbolic acid.
Sprinkle sulphur, tobacco or inseot
powder liberally In the nests and re
more the droppings regularly.

HANDY FARM DBRRICK.
Ttss sat Labor favea br Its V
Kara Thaa Baaals That Re
alretMake It.
A simple and cheaply constructed
boom derrick, arranged as illustrated,
will be found of much service by a
great many farmers, and the time and
labor that will be saved by its use will
more than equal that required to make
It, says an Ohio Farmer writer. When
boxes, barrels- or sacks of produce
are stored In a basement, one man,
without some mechanical assistance
of this kind, will be unable to lift them
from the cellar way and load on a
wagon conveniently, and even It sev-
eral men engage in the work, they
cannot remove and load the articles
as easily and speedily without the
derrick as they can by Its help. A
derrick made in the same way, and
supported as best suits the case on
hand, will often be useful for other
purposes, such as getting out stone,
loading ice, etc.
For the derrick post use a piece of
stout timber not less than four by
four inches square, or a round pole,
if preferable. The length of this pole
will be governed somewhat by the
length of the boom and by the situs-

But probably tke best argument for
improvement la that It pays. A feeder
went forth tke other day to buy some
steers. He t ouad a, bunch and had to'
take them all or none. There were
some common ones In the lot whfch
the good ones had to sell. Disregard
ing the fact that tke good ones would
have brought more if sold separately
the difference In price was enoughito
make a man think. The tops brought
one dollar per hundredwelght'more
than the scrubs. Suppose they aver
aged 1,000 pounds. At Jh'e'prlce paid
the best brought 140 and the others
$30 per head a difference of ten dol
lars. How many 'steers would the
breeder of the scrubs have to raise to
pay for a good useful bull? But that
Is only a part of it. The professors
tell us that the scrub wllll put on as
many pounds as the well-bred animal
in the feed lot. That may be, but It
does not apply to growth under usual
conditions. The well-bred steer will
outgrow the scrub, will weigh more at
n given age. Not only more per hun
dredweight, but more weight, and
much easier to sell. And still that Is
not all. The man who goes In for
Improvement gets a big return that Is
not figured in the steer market. He
is building up a f enisle foundation the
value of which cannot be easily esti
mated. Does it pay to breed up? That Is
no longer a question, The problem Is
to get people to realize the truth. Na

tlon of the derrick. For the boom use
a round or square piece of light but
strong wood, ten to fifteen feet long.
Insert a heavy iron pin in the top and
the foot of the post, and put on iron
bands. Hinge one end of the boom
with iron straps and bolt it to the
post about five feet from the bottom,
and on the other end put a band with
eyes or hoops, as is shown in the par
tial illustration of the derrick.
If the post is round instead of
square, ar pictured, the boom may be
attached by using a band on the post
and the iron device on the boom, like
those shown in one corner of the same
illustration, both of which may be
model from' a heavy wagon tire and
fastened in place by bolts in the holes
made for this purpose.
The top of the post and the end
of the boom are connected by a rope
and a pair of single pulleys, or, better,
by a double block tackle.
The lower pin of the derrick post
revolves- in n wooden block, having
an iron socket or n heavy stone with
a hole drilled to receive it, nnd the
top pin is held by a strong projecting
wood or iron cleat or one of the build
ing timbers.

at which the boom is hinged should

Maaarea and Potato Scab.
It is the common experience that
dme nnd ashes are apt to favor the
potato scab. The Rhode Island exper
iments showed that this is attrib
utable to their content of carbonate
of lime which renders the soil favor
ably alkaline. Similar increase of
scab followed the use of soda ash (car
bonate of soda), potash (carbonate of
potassium) and magnesia. Stable
manure of all kinds favors the scab
development, probably for similar rea
son. Fertilizing materials which do
at tend to Increase the scab and which
may even check It are enumerated as
follows: Common salt, land plaster,
most commercial fertilizers (Includ
ing superphosphates), sulphate of
ammonls, nitrate of soda, kainit, mu
riate of potash, sulphate of potash.

Feed (or Hubs la Winter.
It is utterly impossible to make u
hog profitable on corn alone. A hog
fed on corn alone will soon become
constipated and feverish and there
will be great- risk of disease taking
hold of him and he will likely die.
My plan is to buy mill feed nnd feed
plenty of It to keep them from be
ing constipated. Hogs fed' n slop oi
bran and shorts twice a day will con
sume more corn than hogs that are
fed only corn, and will often make
all difference between n profitable
and unprofitable business. Hogs
should have free occess to salt and
wood ashes, especially In winter, as
they have a tendency to prevent In
digestion and worms; no .hog will
thrive when filled with Intestinal
worms. Wesley Mann, In Farm and
Home.
Too Often thh Resalt of Too Mack

"After women pass middle age,
lays our English contemporary.
Health, "they lose a considerable
amount of their height, not by stoop
ing, as men do, but by actual collapse,
linking down; this is mainly to be at
tributed to the perishing of the mus
cles that support the frame, in conse
quence of habitual and constnnt pres
sure of corsets, and dependence upon
the artificial support by them afford
ed. Every girl who wears corsets thnt
press upon these muscles and restrict
the free development of thefibersthnt
form them, relieving them of tthelr
natural duties of supporting tlwplne,
indeed, incapacitating theui from so
doing, may feel sura she isprcparing
herself to be a dumpy womnn. A great
pity! Failure of health among wom
en when the vigor of youth passes
away is but too patent and but too
commonly caused by this practice.
Most women, from long custom of
wearing the corset, nre really unaware
how much they are hampered and re
stricted. A girl of SO, intended by nu
ture to be one of her finest specimens,
gravely assures one that her corsets
are not tight, being exactly the samo
size as those she was first put into.
not perceiving her condemnation In
the fact that she has since grown fivo
Inches In height and two in shoulder
breadth. Her corsets are not too
tight, because the constant pressuro
has prevented the natural develop
ment of heart and lung space. The
dainty waist of the poets is precise
ly that flexible sllmnese that Is de
stroyed by corsets. The' form result
ing from them is not slim, but a piece
of pipe, and quite as inflexible."
Keep the Plas Comfortable,
Good, warm houses wjll be neces
sary for fall Utters of pigs, says the
Prairie Farmer; not single-sided
sheds, where the temperature gets
very low in cold weather, but good,
warm buildings, where pigs will be
comfortable all the time without pil
ing up four deep to keep warm.
Keeping pigs warm and comfortable
means growth. If in consequence of
cold quarters they have to be kept
warm by the aid of food, and at the
same time kept growing, they will re
quire too much food to make the busi
ness profitable. There is so reason
why any painstaking farmer cannot
get as good results from the fall Ut
ters as from the spring litters, if he
wlU only make extra efforts along
that line.

Dr. N. W. Sanborn sayst The cause
of fowl cholera la a 'minute germ
which, under the microscope, presents
either a circular or oval outline. It
is one of the bacteria, and ha been
called by some a micrococcus', and by
othera a bacillus. It Is about one-fifty,
