NEW HITCHING POST.
It Keep the Hone from Destroying
the Grassy Sod.
When one places a hitching post be
tide s driveway on the lawn, the gran
all about the post is quite sure to be ut
terly destroyed by the feet of the horses,
since horses will move all about a post
to which they are hitched, even wben
harnessed to a carriage. This makes
an unsightly spot, and one where, very
quickly, a pool of water will stand after
every rain. The cut shows an improve
ment on an "improved" hitching post
NEW HITCHING POST.
I first conceived the idea of locating
the post just outside the roadway, in
the grass, using the double swinging
Iron arm, with its snaffle, to hold the
horse off from the grass. This works
well with most horses, but some will
throw the arm completely up over the
top of the post, and so get on to the
grass with all four feet. This is ob
viated by using the chain, as shown in
the cut. This permits the arm to rise
just far enough to reach the bridle of
the horse, with play enough so that he
can move his head freely, but does not
permit him to throw it over upon the
other side of the post.
This device of using an arm to keep
the horse away from the post accom
plishes more than the preservation of
the grassy sod. It keeps the horse from
gnawing and disfiguring the post, and
from rubbing his bridle and other parts
of his harness against it often to the
serious injury of the harness. Country
COMFORT ON THt FARM.
It Fnrnlalies EoconraeemcDt for Sac
The lack of comfort in the home, of a
farmer is not, as a general rule, so
much the result of necessity as of neg
lect; nor is it true that man or beast is
better off without it. A lot of chink
holes in the barn may be all right for
ventilation in summer, but they bring
discomfort to the animals and cost a
deal of grain when winter's blasts are
on. Discomfort is a source of weakness
and a hindrance to development. The
word cemfort means to strengthen
much, to encourage, to invigorate.
These certanly are great aids to bet
ter life and furnish encouragement for
successful effort. The cow will yield
more and better milk if she finds com
fort in her stall and pasture. The steer
will lay on more pounds if made com
fortable. Carried to its fullest meaning com
fort, is not to be associated with ef
feminacy or the weakening of body or
mind. So essential is this factor to all
life that neither man nor beast can ac
complish the full quota of labor with
out it. Securing comfort then In our
homes and barnyards does not mean
extravagance or an investment that
will not give good returns. If a wind
mill is a luxury then a pump is one also,
for the water might be lifted with a
rope. Perhaps the cynic may call the
well an extravagance for the water
might be carried several miles from
some creek or spring. The farmer who
can afford it and does not have a com
fortable home is not a first-class citi
zen. Rural World.
AMONG THE POULTRY.
THE POULTRY BUSINESS
Points to Be Considered by Those
About to Eater It.
Many claims have been made in favor
of poultry-raisers which have dene
harm by inducing inexperienced per
sons to venture into the poultry busi
ness under the delusion that they can
surely make a competency even if fail
ure ensues in every other enterprise.
Careful reflection should convince the
most enthusiastic individuals that it is
impossible to realize much that is hld
out invitingly. With the sum of a few
hundred dollars, or as much as a thou
sand, it is proposed to engage in the
poultry business. The question is con
sidered and discussed as to the profits
to expect. Comparing the business
with any other it can be noticed that
there is no occupation that would not
be considered very profitable with a
profit of 20 per cent., or even one-half
that percentage. To realize $200 a year
on an investment of $1,000, therefore,
is to secure in the poultry business
something that is difficult to obtain in
any other direction, yet many who in
vest $1,000 in poultry and the neces
sary buildings are not satisfied unless
they can make a sum nearly equal to
the capital employed. One cause of
much expectation is the fact that fowls
multiply rapidly, and will naturally in
crease, which is true; but it requires
the loss of a year for the chicks to
rtach maturity, while the expense is
occurring all the time. The sum of
$1,000 would not pay for the buildings
and fowls necessary to start with 5U0
hens, and the profit will not amount
to one dollar a hen for the whole num
ber. Kight here it may be urged that
one can, by doing the work himself,
make $000 a year on a capital of $1,000,
but it will not be profit, as the labor
must be paid for, whether it is per
formed by the investor or by employ
ing some one to assist. That, however,
is the bright side of the business, li
a person can invest his money so as
to give himself employment it will be
a great point gained, but only the most
experienced poultrymen have succeed
ed in keeping 500 hens. On the farms
where the farmers are already estab
lished they can, by utilizing their la
bor in winter, make poultry pay well
on their investment, but all who may
engage in the business will find that as
soon as the labor is hired the profits will
not exceed those derived from some
other pursuits. Farm and Fireside.

Comparison of Grata Values.
The comparative valuesof corn, wheat
and barley for pork making seem to
be about as follows, from recent ex
periments at the Canada and United
States experiment stations: To make
1 pound of pork, 4 pounds 11 ounces of
barley was consumed, making the bar
ley net 50 cents per bushel. Its mar
ket value was 25 cents. On wheat, a
pound of pork was made from 4 pounds
6 ounces, returning 70 cents per
bushel. Four and one-half pounds ot
corn was required, making its cash
vnlue C3 cents. At market prices, bar
ley. 25 cents; wheat, 55 Cents; corn,
85 cents, the pork cost 2.5 cents, 4 cent

Whether the pigs have cholera, ty

which they nre subject, the fact can
not be gainsaid that at present the
pigs are dying in large numbers. Any
definite cure can hardly be suggested.
Soon the disease will have run itscourse.
Only those who take the precautions
to quarantine the sick and prevent the
spread of the disease will come out
with something to show for the care
bestowed on the swine herd. The sick
animals should be isolated as remote
from the well ones and from the hen
house as possible, and the dead should
be burned or buried in lime promptly.
The disease can be carried to all parts
of the farm by persons going from onj
place, to another after having been
' among the sick ones. The hogs ought
' to be quarantined in a clover field or
other lot that is to be plowed up in
the spring and put into some other
kind of crop. Corn and rye are an un
desirable ration for sick hogs they
should have easily digested and nutri
tious food to keep up their strength.

From Paralysis and Six Tears of
Little Fannie Adams, of rmatllta,
Cared of a Dreadful Malady A
. Cure of Cnnsnal Interest A
From the Lake Region, Eustls, Fla.
For some time past the Lake Region has
been receiving rejiurUs from l'matiila, Fla.,
of an almost miraculous cure that had been
effected in the case of Fannie Adams, a
daughter of A. J. Adams, of that place, and
last Saturday a representative of this paper
made a trip to L'matiila for tiie purpose of
determining the authenticity of the same.
The family live a short distance from the
village, where it was found that the people
were cognizant of the cure which had been
effected, and were rejoicing with the family
in their new found happiness. The father,
A. J. Adams, is a hard-working honest
farmer from east Tennessee, and the family
came to Florida four years ago in the hope
that a change of climate would be of benefit
to their atilicted child. .Much of their earn
ings have gone for . doctors' bills, whose
services proved unavailing. The representa
tive was greeted by Mrs. Adams, from whom
he gained the story of her great trial.
Fannie, the youngest child, was born in
east Tennessee, and was seven years old on
the third day of February, 1897. When ten
months old she was stricken with paralvsis,
which affected the entire left side. This
stioke of paralysis was followed by convul
sions, and from the time little Fannie was
ten months old until February, 1897, there
was not a single day or a night that the did
not have spasms of the most distressing
nature. Xot a single convulsion, but al
ways three or four, and sometimes as high
as ten in one day.
The family was all broken down with
care, and Jlrs. Adams states that for tine
year she did not go into her kitchen to super
intend her household work. All the fingers
of the right hand of the little girl are en
larged and misshapen, caused by her bit
ing them during the fearful suffering. The
case haflled the skill of the best physicians,
and they were frank to say that they could
not determine the cause, or prescribe a
remedy to aid the afllicted child.
I!ut what a change now in that household;
for little Fannie has recently len released
from lier six years of egony, which brings the
light of happiness to the faces of the parents.
In January, this year. Mrs. Adams, who
had purchased some of Dr. Williams' Pink
I'ills for Pale People for her fourteen vear
old daughter, determined to try their effect
upon little Fannie. After tliree or four
doses, she noted an improvement and she
then told the father what she had done.
He at once went to the village and bought
another box, and up to this time six boxes
have been used. The first pills, Mrs.
Adams states, were given in January, the
latter part, and certainly not earlier than
the fifteenth or twentieth, and the child had
her last convulsion on February 3d, nearly
three months ago. Her general condition
has improved in everv way. and it was not
a month after the first pills were taken
when she began to walk without assistance.
The pills were bought at the drug store
of Dr. Shelton, in l'matiila. In answer
to the question, did he, to his personal
knowledge, know that the remedv had bene
fited Fannie Adams, as was stated by her
farents, the doctor said that he was a regu
ar practicing physician, and as such was
loth to recommend any proprietary medi
cine, but still he was ready to do justice to
rII men. and he did know that Dr. Wil
liams Pink Pills for Pale People had bene
fited Fannie Adams, and also volunteered
the information that he knew of other chil
dren in the village who had been benefited
bv their use.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People
contain, in n condensed form, all the ele
ments necessary to give new life and rich
ness to the blood and restore shattered
nerves. They are also a Rpeeific for trou
bles peculiar to females, such as suppres
sions, irregularities and all forms of weak
ness. They build up the blood, and re
store the glow of health to pale and sallow
cheeks. In men they effect a radical cure
in all eases arising from mental worry, over
work or excesses of whatever nature. Pink
Pills are sold in boxes (never in loose bulk)
at 50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50. and

Clover Makes Heas Lay.
Clover contains more mineral matter
than grain, and the hens will relish it
highly. If the flock is confined in yards,
give finely cut clover, or place sods in
the yards for them to pick. Bulky food

serves to assist digestion and promotes
health. Variety can be best secured by
the use of green food, and not only the
leaves, hut the seeds are relishd. If
