BARN FOB. ALFALFA,
How Lecmmea Can Be Fed Economic
ally and Stored for Consid
The advantage of raising alfalfa in
a country subjected to drouth hus one
great drawback, owing to the shelling
off and breaking of the leaves. If it is
necessary to load from the barn into
a wagon and haul to the feed rack, this
double pitching is sure to shake out
all the loose leaves and break off many
more, and should the hay have been a
little over dry, by the time it gets to
the cattle there is little else but dry,
hard stems with scanty nutrition. The
cattle will not eat these and other hay
must be supplied. Fed in this way,
alfalfa is a failure, but with propel
conveniences there is little if any loss.
The illustration shows an alfalfa stor
age barn in one of my neighbor's feed
The barn is a two-story structure,
but can be made any size and height
desired, according to the amount ol
hay to be stored. For filling the
barn, doors in the gables are most con
venient, but for taking the hay out a

floor about four feet square should be
cut in the side as high as possible.
Just inside nndabout two or three feet
below this opening a platform should
be built to aid in throwing out the hay
when the barn is nearly empty, by first
pitching it to the platform. The feed
racks should be built ten to sixteen feet
from the barn, far enough so that the
stock may have ready access to both
sides, with an inclined slide to carry
the hay down from the door to tho
rack. This slide can be made oJ any
rough lumber wuh no cracks bet neen
tIie boards. One slide will furnish
rom to -i0 '-'" of rack with hay,
and if more rack room is desired other
doors and slides can be added. There i

New .Method Thnt linn lieen IMxcov
red and Sarc-pusf ally Intro
duced In Denmark.
Oliver K. Hughes, consul at Sonne
oerg, Germany, tells of a new method
of preserving meat. His report is as
"A new method of preserving freshly
kiiled meats has been discovered by the
Danish zoologist, August Fjelstrup, al
ready well known through his method
of condensing milk without the use of
sugar. The system (according to the
printed reports) has stood a remark
ably hard three months' test at the
Udcnse (Danish) company's slaughter
houses in a very satisfactory manner.
"The method in itself is extremely
simple and might be of great service
for the troops in the tropics (the writ
er having had considerable experience
in trying to keep fresh meat in Cuba).
The animal to be used is first shot or
stunned by a shot from a revolver,
loaded with small slugs, in the fore
head, in such a manner as not to injure
tiie brain. As the'animal drops sense
less an assistant cuts down over the
heart, opens a ventricle and allows all
th? blood to flow out. The theory of
this being that the decomposition ot
the blood is almost entirely responsible
fur the quick putrefaction of fresh
meats. Immediately thereafter a
briny solution made of carz or fine salt,
more or less strong, according to
length of time meat is to be kept, is in
jected by means of a powerful syringe
through the other ventricle into the
veins of the body. The whole process
takes only a few minutes and the beef
is ready for use and can be cut up at
once. This method has been examined
and very favorably reported on by the
general consul at Odense and Aarhans.
and also by many experts."
Blue Grass a Century Ago.
It is a somewhat curious as well as
instructive historical fact that less
than a century ago blue grass, now re
garded as indispensable on the farm,
was treated as a pest, which all good
people were expected to get rid of as
soou as possib'e. Its great value was
wholly unknown, and it was not till
after years of denunciation and bad
treatment that it worked its way to its
present high position among the for
age platts. We thould learn from this
not to be too hasty in rejecting any
thing that presents itself for experi
ment aud consideration. P. S. Ken

HEROES OF WAR.
From the Chicago Times-Herald.
The feeling of admiration for heroes ol
War seems to be innate in the human heart,
and is brought to the surface as the opportu
nity and object presents itself.
Among those who proved their heroism
during our Civil War was A. Schiffeneder,

the Army of the Potomac he saw much fight
ing, campaigning m the Shenandoah Valley.
In the first day's righting at the battle oi
Gettysburg, Schillentder received a wound
in the right sid?, which afterward caused
him much trouble. With a portion of his
regiment he was captured and imprisoned
at Hell Island and Andersonville, and after
ward exchanged. He returned to his regi
ment, which was transferred to the army oi
(jenera.1 Sherman, and marched with him
through Georgia to the sea.
In this campaign Mr. Schiffeneder's old
wound began to uouble him and he was
sent to the hospital and then home. He
had also contracted catarrh of the stomach
and found no relief for years.
"I happened lo read an account of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills lor 1'ale People about
a year ago." he said, "and thought that
they might be good lor my trouble. I con
cluded to try tiicin. I bought one box and
began to take them according to directions.
They gave me great relief. After finishing
that box I bougiit another, and when I had
taken the pills i felt that 1 was cured. I
recovered my appetite and ate heartily. I
can testify to the good the pills did me."

Commodore Melville proposes, in or
der to test the question of transpolar
currents, to send adrift a number of
specially constructed casks north of

trace their course. Certainly the ex
periment is worth trying. Mid it would
be fitting were the money raispd in
Philadelphia to furnish the casks. As
to sending them adrift, the Cnited
States government vessels, which will
be called upon to do more active duty
in Alaskan waters tha.i ever before,
might well aid In this work. In favor
able summers a run north of Wrnngel
island is but a pleasant excursion, und
under very favorable conditions the
casks could be dropped off so far north
as to insure that they would follow I

Modern discoveries concerning the
rrigin of diseases have brought the lit
tle orga.-isms called bacteria into so
much prominence that search has been
made to ascertain if the' existed dur
ing the early geological periods. A few
months ago the fact was announced
that M. IJegnault had discovered bac
teria in coal. Continuinghis researches,
he found evidences that bacteria were
probably coeval with the first Hppear
ance of organic life on the earth. They
attacked vegetable tissues, as well as
the bones and teeth of animals, but as
o rule they belonged to species distinct
from the bacteria of to-day. Youth's

Chances Taken by the Kaiser.
A German paper says that the lives
of royalties have more dangerous mo

persons travel about as much as does
the emperor, and this fact alone raises
the possibility of accidents. Moreover,
the emperor is a daring horseman; he
drives a great deal, and always very
fast, and it may be regarded as a piece
of particular good luck that nothing
has happened to him long before this.
