TO KILL HOG LICE.
They Are Destroyed Keadlly by the Relia
ble Kerosene KmuiMnn.
We hear a good deal about lice on
poultry and ticks on sheep, but there is
rarely any mention of the parasites on
bogs, though these animals are tor
mented equally with the others by lit
tle insects which feed on them freely.
1 hese parasites, which are doinir their
best to render our fattening ration of
no avail, are easily destroyed by the
ever useful kcrosene"emulsion. When
a dip in the mixture is not practicable.
a spraying machine can bo used with
The kerosene emnlsion is made by
boiling a pound of soap, hard or soft
in a gallon of boiling water. Then
add to this two quarts of kerosene, and
the lather of the soap will cause the
oil to mix so that it will not again sep
arate. Kerosene emulsion may be made
with milk instead of with soapsuds.
but the best place to apply milk to hogs
is on the inside. For destroying ver
min tbe soap lather emulsion with ker
osene is quite as good, and perhaps bet
ter, as tbe soap helps to clean away
any scurf from tbe skin.
But it is of little use to clean the
hogs or other stock of lice, whilst leav
ing their pens, beds and places of re
sort untouched. Old beds must be
cleaned out and burned with every ves
tige of stuff that remains in any place
to which the hogs resort These places
are the breeding, germinating nests of
the merciless lice and mnst not only be
thoroughly cleansed, bnt as thorough
ly saturated with emulsion as the hogs.
and every nook and crac k, every cran
ny and corner be thoroughly drenched
with the emulsion. Colman's Rural
A HARNESS HORSE.
Bow to Make Ono of These Useful and
Our illustration is of a device very
useful in mending harness. The bench
or main part ia made from a S-inch
board 4 feet long and 1 foot wide. Put
in legs, round off the edges snd ends
so as to form a comfortable seat If
the top is padded, so much the better.
For the clamps use two pieces of 2x4
white oak lumber, abont 15 inches
long. Shape as represented in tbe il
lustration and fasten the one on the
right firmly to the bench. . Secure the
other with two hinges stf that it can be
moved back and forth. Pass a strong
leather strap from this through a hole
near the top of the opposite part of the
damp, down through another in the
bench and attach to the foot lever.
A AKHKSS HORSB.
Tbe piece of harness to be mended is
pat between the clamps and securely
fastened by means, of the lever and
strap. Such a hone is very easily
made and wlU enable one, during idle
times this winter, to easily repair har
ness which otherwise would have to be
taken to the ,f shop. Orange Jodd

Is, for each image produced oa the
retina, the ends of the Visual Ben
concerned in the conveyance of tho im
pression to the mind must be under a
peculiar stress or in a vibratory state.
It now does not seem improbable
that when by tbe power of thought aa

no matter how weak, ia exerted apon
certain ends of tbe visual serves, and,
therefore, upon the retina Will it
ever be within human power to analyse
the condition of the retina when dis
turbed by thought or reflex action, by
the help of some optical or other means
of such sensitiveness, that a clear idea
of its state might be gained at aay
If this were probable, then the prob
lem of reading one's thoughts with
precision, like the characters of an
open book might be much easier to
solve than many problems belonging
to the domain of positive physical
science, in the solution of which many
if not the majority of scientific men
implicitly believe, Helmholts has
shown that the fundi of the eyes are
themselves luminous, and he was able
to see in total darkness the movement
of his arm by the light of his own
This is one of the most remarkable
experiments recorded in tbe I 'story of
science, and probably only a few men
could satisfactorily repeat it, for it ia
very likely that the luminosity of the
eyes is associated with uncommon ac-.
tivity of the brain and great Imagina
tive powers. It is fluorescence of brain
activity, as it were, in all its essential
