SETTING THE HEN.
Koch Aunoyaaee Caa Be Prerented by
An exchange thinks that this is a
subject that seems to admit of a wide,
range of opinion, notwithstanding it is
something almost any child of ten or
twelve years, brought up in the rural
districts, conld do successfully. There
are many grown people, however, who
look to their neighbors for informa
tion on this subject, and the neighbors
thihk it such a trivial affair that they
do not give the subject sufficient
thought to enable them to enlighten
those who seek the information. In
other words, they only understand it
practically and not theoretically.
Josh Billings made one point clear
when he wrote: "The best time to set
a hen is when the hen is ready," but a
difficulty presents itself just at that
period. When the hen is ready the
owner is not, owing to the fact that
the hen has chosen an unsuitable place
for hatching, and here is where the
trouble is. The owner wants to move
the hen to a more convenient place,
and he finds she is very much "set in
her ways," and will not be moved, and
as a natural consequence in attempt
ing to compel biddy to hatch where
she does not want to, a sitting of eggs
are spoiled and much valuable time
lost. A very little training of the hen
would avoid all the annoyance. When
your hens begin to lay, suitable places
should be arranged about the premises
for nests, in secluded places an the
ground, and when the hen has once
appropriate-! one of these places to her
own use all that is necessary is to let
her alone. If there is danger of the
eggs freezing, pat a china egg in the
nest, and when she begins to sit re
move it and give her good eggs. In
this way, success is probable if not
BIDDY'S BROKEN LIMB.
It Can Be Set Nicely with Adhesive Rub
When a valuable fowl of some se
lected pure breed is injured, or the leg
is broken, there is often no remedy
and the bird is destroyed. In this
connection we present illustrations
sent to Farm and Field by Dr. 1). K.
Spahr. of Ohio, who writes:
'About a week ago my little boy
came into my office with a woeful
countenance, bearing in his arms a
beautiful young white Leghorn pullet
that had met with an accident and had
a broken leg. Fig. 1 shows how the
limb looked at that time. I took a
K1 ta FIC2 jgf
strip of surgeon's rubber adhesive
plaster, which comes on spools one
and a half inches wide, and while he
held the limb straight and in position;
1 wrapped it three times around the
limb neatly and closely, but not too
tightly. The layers adhered to the
leg and to each other and made a light,
neat splint that would not loosen or
come off. The poor chick hobbled off
at once and is now walking about
taking its food with very little incon
renience. The strip of plaster should
be of the proper width to correspond
with the size of the chicken and can
be applied by anyone using proper
care and judgment."
Artificial Lakes on Farms.
When one gives the subject thought,
it appears strange that so few readers
have artificial ponds when so many
have suitable places to erect the ponds
at small expense. Recently during a
visit to the country we saw where a
never-failing spring had been utilized
in this way, and the miniature lake
was both useful and ornamental. The
surplus water ran through a trough,
erected for the stock, and with a
great deal less attention than is re
quired by a windmill the trough was
kept perfectly clean, always full and
the water fresh. Although the grass
had been pretty short during the sum
mer, the horses looked as if they had
been living on luxuriant clover. The
pond is well stocked with game fish,
and each of the farmer's rising sons
would about as leave dispense with
the barn as to do away with the pond.
Spring- Crops Favored.
Unless the season is unfavorable,
the markets are almost invariably
glutted with fruit and produce in the
fall and winter. Everybody then
wants to sell, to realize money for cur
rent expenses, and prices are too often
weak and unremunerative. The pro
duction of early stuff asparagus,
strawberries and other vegetables and
fruits is not so common as the staple
crops, and when a good market is con
venient this early truck is generally
the most profitable. The spring and
early summer market is usually a better-paying
one than the fall market.
This is a great point and well worthy
the farmer's best consideration.
Leaky Fnaltry House Boofs. ,
A small hole in the roof will do in
calculable damage to a flock by keep
ing the house damp and cold. Evap
oration of moisture is always at the
expense of loss of warmth, and the
failure to stop a crack may cause an
expense for more food, as the body of
the fowl is kept warm by the food,'
and tne more comfortable the quar
ters the less food required. Dry cold,
where the fowls are not exposed to
the winds, will no t cause as much
sickness as dampness, and especially
when the rain not only leaks down on
the floor, but also on the fowls aa
well. Close the leaks before the
weather becomes cold. Farm and
Why the Emperor la the Sloat
Character in History.
Within the past year there has been
a revival of interest in the career of
Napoleon Bonaparte that is almost
phenomenal. In literature he has fig
ured in the pages of memoirs and rem
iniscences by those who came into
more and less intimate contact with
him. In art not only has he been a po
tent inspiration to modern painters
and sculptors, but he has made price
less all pictorial records of his time. In
the drama he poses as the most pictur
esque figure that has been brought
upon the stage within the century.
Personal relics of the man are held as
sacred and beyond all price. As Paul
Bourget aptly says, "Napoleon has
hypnotized the French people again."
In France the sting of defeat after
the Franco-Prussian war turned the
thoughts of all to their period of great
est glory, and so it needed but time to
see Napoleon enshrined as an idoL An
equally logical explanation is found
for the most notable feature of the Na
poleon revival in this country.
The Century11 life of the emperor was
projected five or six years ago, before
anyone could have foreseen the pres
ent attitude of the public mind. It
was undertaken solely with the idea
that Napoleon was one of the greatest,
most forceful and picturesque charac
ters in the entire range of history, and
that hitherto he had been inadequate
ly represented. For that reason Prof.
William M. Sloane, the greatest Amer
ican student of French history, was
commissioned to write the life, and
his years of study among unpublished
archives have brought out his com
pleted labor at the most opportune mo
ment. And Prof. Sloane shows us a
new Napoleon, a devourer of books, an
unsuccessful literary aspirant, an inef
fectual Corsican political agitator, but
the new Napoleon certainly makes the
old Napoleon more easily comprehended.
The men who fought the establish
ment of the department of agriculture
a few years ago, on the ground that it
was unnecessary, will perhaps be sur
prised to learn that one hundred years
ago there was a "Clothing Depart
ment," and that congress issued regu
lations for a clothier general, a regi
mental clothier, and so on. A "De
partment of Clothing" would excite de
risive laughter now. There was a good
deal of inquiry and report on the sub
ject of clothing for the continental
army, and at one time Gen. Horatio
Gates reported that the cost of cloth
ing each man was twenty-three dol

of all cases of consumption can, if taken in
the earlier stages of the disease, be cured.
This may seem like a bold assertion to
those familiar only with' the means gener
ally in use for its treatment ; as. nasty cod
liver oil and its filthy emulsions, extract
of malt, whiskey, different preparations of
hypophosphites and such like palliatives.
Although by many believed to be incura
ble, there is the evidence of hundreds of
living witnesses to the fact that, iu all its
earlier stages, consumption is a curable
disease. Not every case, but a large per
centage of cases, and we believe,yKV oS
percent, are cured by Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery, even after the disease
has progressed so far as to induce repeated
bleedings from the lungs, severe lingering
cough with copious expectoration (includ
ing tubercular matter), great loss of flesh
and extreme emaciation and weakness.
Do you doubt that hundreds of such cases
reported to us as cured by " Golden Med
ical Discovery " were genuine cases of that
dread and fatal disease ? You need not take
our word for it They have, in nearly every
instance, been so pronounced by the best
and most experienced home physicians,
who have no interest whatever in mis
representing them, and who were often
strongly prejudiced and advised against
a trial of "Golden Medical Discovery,"
but who have been forced to confess that
it surpasses, in curative power over this
fatal malady, all other medicines with
which they are acquainted. Nasty cod
liver oil and its filthy "emulsions" and
mixtures, had been tried in nearly all these
cases and bad either utterly failed to bene
fit, or had only seemed to benefit a little for
a short time. Extract of malt, whiskey,
and various preparations of the hypophos
phites had also been faithfully tried in vain.
The photographs of a large number of
those cured of consumption, bronchitis,
lingering coughs, asthma, chronic nasal
catarrh and kindred maladies, have been
skillfully reproduced in a book of 160
pages which will be mailed to you, on re
