Wheat Top-Drei»lae- "'•nff<'
Excepting commercial fertilizers, which
should always be drilled in with the seed,
my manure for wheat will do most good if
tppited as a top-dressing. There will be no
oss in potting it on any time after plowing,
in which ease, if applied early, much of it
will be worked slightly under the soil in
preparing the seed bed. This, however, is
not essential, and the very best crops of
wheat may be grown on comparatively
poor soil by top-dressing after sow
ing, and even after the surface of
the ground is frozen hard enough
to bear op teams and wagon. In this way
little or no injury is done to the plants by
trampling the ground. A few leaves may
be broken off, but the root is uninjured, and
ready, with the stimulus of the manure, to
send up plenty more leaves and stalks in the
spring. Sometimes the top-dressing is de
ferred until the ground is covered with
snow. Manure is than drawn out and dis
tributed from the sled. It is easier draw
ing out manure on the snow than at any
other time. It is easy pulling for the team,
and not so heavy lifting the manure as into
Whatever manure, however, is now in
the barnyard should not be left until winter
before drawing out. It is impossible to
dean a barnyard thoroughly in winter.
The out-of-the-way corners, where valua
ble deposits of old and finely-rotted manure
are often found, will be either covered
with straw as they should be. or, if uncov
ered, will be frozen too solidly to get at.
If manure is largely drawn in winter, it !
must be mainly from heaps thrown out
from the stables and sheds as fast as made.
What is needed now is to thoroughly clean
the barnyard and remove the accu
mulations of manure made during
the summer. In spring it is very rare that
the winter-made manure is all got out.
Work is then too pressing, and besides, in
the spring much manure in the barnyard is
so mixed with straw and cornstalks as not
to be easily or profitably handled. Left
until fall, as much winter-made manure
necessarily is it is then rotted down. and.
with what is made by cows in the barnyard
at night and horses in the stable, a farmer
ought to have enough to top-dress what
wheat or other winter grain he
should sow. If only so much wheat
were sown as could be thoroughly top
dressed, prices of wheat would
be mnch better, arid, what is more important,
all would be grown at a profit. The ex
perience of English farmers proves that it is
possible to More than double the average
yield of wheat per acre, as they have done
within the last fifty years. If we grew the
same amount of wheat that we do now on
half the acreage.it would be sold with profit
even at present low prices. We are satis
fied that this is the way out of the difficulty
of wheat growers, and that restricting seed
ing to what can be top-dressed is the means
of securing profitable returns.
Tools and Repairs.
It must be a very bungling fanner who
cannot afford to have from 510t0?25 worth
of sharp tools and a good place to keep and
use them. The interes such an invest
ment will be less than it may cost to make
a single trip to the village to get some small
but very indispensable repairing done when
harvest" is driving, and perhaps several men
waiting with nothing to bo but to figure up
how much they will get for the time they are
idle. Some men have very little faculty in
the rise of tools, but if there are two or
three boys in the family there will probably
be at least oue that will learn to use tools,
if he can have them to use. Unless we
lived very near a shop we should about as
soon think of trying to get along without a
plow or cultivator as to get along without
a good hammer and monkey-wrench, and
yet until mowing machines came into gen
eral use and wrenches were put in as
a part of the outfit by the manufac
turer monkey-wrenches were quite
rarely found on farms. An old pair of
broken-jawed pincers were frequently the
nearest approach to a wrench when a nut
needed to be taken off for putting a new
point to the plow. We know this, for we
have had our fingers pinched many times
trying to do just this thing, before good
wrenches became common. No farm out
lit is complete without two or three saws, a
claw-hammer, a hatchet, a square, some
planes, a set of bits and bit-stock, screw
driver, a few gimlets, awls, punches, files
of different shapes and sizes, two or three
chisels, a mallet and a good work-bench
with vise attached.
Rye for Fall and Spring Pasture.
Allow me to urge every farmer to sow
rye on every available acre just as soon as
the ground "is in proper condition. It is
now evident that the dry weather will
shorten our crops, and we should at once
look for some means by which to replace
the loss. By the early and extensive sow
ing of rye an immense amount of
pasturage can be secured for stock,
which will add very greatly in carrying
the cattle and horses through till another
season. If rain comes soon and the
sowing to be done promptly a large amount
of pasture can be secured for use this fall;
but if circumstances are such as to prevent
sowing in time for fall purposes it will be
ready for early spring and may be pastured
into May, and with a favorable spring a
fair crop can still be secured, or if the land
is then wanted for corn, pasture close and
turn under. After years ol experience it
lias been the conclusion of the writer that
there was no crop which, all things consid
ered, paid better than rye, except, of course,
grass, which is the crop for lowa, After
the rains come sowing may be done at al
most any time before the ground is frozen.
Having purchased a farm late in the fall a
few years ago I was delayed in sowing that
place until the 29th of October. The ground
being wet at the time the grain sprouted at
once, and was just beginning to come
through the surface when everything froze
up for the winter, but the rye came through
all right and yielded a bountiful crop Hie
What grass lands can do in affording a
great amount of pasture if applied with
■water, when most needed, may be seen from
the following account in the Colorado
Farmer of a pasture on the farm of Alfred
Storrs, of that state:
This gentleman has a field of fifteen acres,
including a little lake of two acres, that
was seeded to red clover, timothy and blue
grass four years ago. This farm was
mowed two years ago, and since then has
been used as a pasture. When we saw this
field last week there were grazing on it
thirty-five head of Shorthorn cows and
calves, and the pasture was almost knee
high, fresh growing, luxuriant, the cattle
were sleek and fat, fit for beef, every one

absence of the cattle from the field during

fifteen acres at least two head per acre of

any state east of here, and it is because of

be kept at that stage of growth that makes
it the most nutritious. The irrigating: dis
solves the droppings of the cattle and dis

continually keeping up the fertility: there
are no burnt-out knolls in the field, no spots

First — It takes the cream longer to rise

Fourth— Holstein milk Is rich, and has a

ISoiue of my friends who are breeding
Jersey cattle may question these state

even before the cream is taken off. How
do they know? Not one .Jersey breeder in
a hundred ever owned or milked a llolstein
cow. 1 make no war on Jersey cows, as
they are good for butter, but 1 do know that
ninny of the assertions made by Jersey
breeders respecting Holstein milk are not
true. I know whereof 1 speak, as I have
made tons of llolstein butter and cheese,
hence J know the appearance and nature
of llolstein milk when it is first taken from
the cow; also after it has been skimmed;
and for family and general dairy purposes
it has no equal. After all the cream has
been taken out of llolstein milk it is not
bine and thin, like the«skhnined milk from
Jersey cows, but is still rich in caseine and
is of superior quality for raising calves and
A Flohkp for Forty Fowls.
A comfortable house may be built, say
twenty feet long and ten feet wide, and
eight feet front and five feet back, boarded
upright and battened, with a shed roof,
shingled, the flooring to be made by filling
it with mellow loam to the top of the under
pinning; this we consider better than a
cement floor. This building had better
be divided into two compartments, with
partition and door; the south front
should have two windows of six lights,
SxlO glass; the east, oue window.
Ventilators should be fixed at the highest
point on each end. The roost should not
be over two feet high, and about eight
inches above a platform twenty inches wide;
underneath this platform the nest boxes
can be placed. A dust bin must also be
provided. And now you have a comfort

diluted with wat«r will drive away the lice
in your hen-house; it may be applied with

to a small pump. It would hardly pay to
heat the house iv cold weather; it would be
better to make it as warm as possible by
either ceiliug it or living with tarred paper.
Peaches dried with svgar — Peel yellow
peaches; cut them from the stone iv one
piece, allow two pounds of sugar for six
pounds of the fruit; make a syrup of three
uuarters of a pound of sugar and a little
water, put in the peaches and let them stay
till the.r are quite clear, take them up care
fully on a dish and set them in the sun to dry.
Strew powdered sugar over them on all sides,
a little at a time, and if any syrip is left re
move them to fresh dishes. When they are
quite dry lay them lightly in a jar with a little
sugar between each layer.
Sweet Tomato Pickle — One cpeck of green
tomatoes and six larjye onions, sliced. Sprinkle
with one cupful of salt and let them stand
over night. In the morning drain. Add to
the tomatoes two quarts of water and one
quart of vineg-ar. Boil fifteen minutes, then
drain again and throw this vinegar and water
awny. Add to tbo pickle two pounds of sugar,
two quarts of vinegar, two taulespoonfuls of
cloves, two of allspice, two of ginger, two
of mustard, two of cinnamon, and one tea
spoonful of cayenne, and Doil fifteen minutes.
Preserved Cucumbers — Split the cucumbers
and extract the seeds. Let tLem remain for
three days in salt and water. Put them now
into cold water, with a small quantity of
alum, and boil them till tender. Drain them
and allow them to lie in a thin syrup for two
days, then take them out, boiling 1 the syrup
again, and pour it over the cucumbers, re
peating this operation twice more. Now boil
some clarified 6ugar until, when a spoonful
of it is taken up and blown through, small
sparks of sugar will fly from it; put the cu
cumbers into this and let them simmer five
minutes. Leave them until the next day,
when the whole must be boiled up again, and
afterward out by for use.
Pickiette — Four large cabba<res, cut fine:
one quart oniODS, chopped fine; two quarts
vinegar, or enough to cover the cabbage; two
pounds brown sugar, two tablespoonfuls
ground mustard and black pepper, two table
spoonfuls cinnamon, two tablespoonfnls tur
meric, two tablespoonfuls celery seed, one
tablespoonful allspice, one tablespoonful
mace, one tablespoonful alum, pulverized,
pack the caobage and onions in alternate lay
ers, with a little salt between them. Let
them stand till the next day. Then scald the
vinegar, sugar and spices together, and pour
orer the cabbage and onions. Do this three
mornings in succession. On the fourth put
all together over the fire, and heat to a boil.
Let them boil five minutes. When cold pack
in small jars. It Is fit for use as soon as cool,

Various Kinds of Kisses as Considered bj

••f think," said a clever society lady to
the Chicago HeraM note taker, 1 "that the

imaginable. That la, when they are not

"Not sweets, oftentimes anything but
that, but a waste of patience, and a de
mand on courteaey that is excessively try
ing," and with this explosion of momentary
wrath, which lady readers have all occa
sionally felt, the lady settled herself in an
easy chair and listened to the scribe, while
he took occasion to make a few remarks on
kissing and the art thereof.
Sam Slick said a kiss was like creation;
it was made out of nothing, and was very
good. That applies to kisses that are kisses,
not to Mating between women or between
men. Among our English ancestors it was
customary for men to kiss each other, but
the vile habit was turned over entirely
to our French and German friends. Great
bearded men among them kiss each other,
and it is not pleasant to see. Nor does Mr.
Slick's definition apply to those kisses of
ceremony or state symbol, where the sub
ject kisses the hand or the foot of his sov
ereign or the ground before him. as has
been customary in one age or another of
the world. When Gladstone surrendered
the seals of office the other day, and Salis
bury received them, they both knelt down
and kissed the queen's hand. The Roman
emperors demanded to be kissed on the
feet, and later to have the ground before
There have always been religions kisses,
duly enjoined in the writings of the Apos
tles. The Bible has many tender, and
some terrible, passages concerning kissing,
the extremes of which are that of Mary
Magdalen, so full of love and pathos, kiss
ing the feet of the Savior, and that of
Judas, betraying him.
But these are not the kisses one thinks of
when the word is spoken, but rather of the
kind Sydney Smith speaks of: "'We are in
favor of a certain amount of shyness when
a kiss is proposed, but it should not be too
long, and when the fair one gives it, let it
be administered with warmth and energy;
let there be soul in it If she close her
eyes and sigh immediately after it, the
effect is greater. She should be careful not
to slobber a kiss, but to give it as a hum
mine bird runs his bill into a honeysuckle —
deep, but delicate. We have the memory
of one received in our youth which lasted
us forty years, and we believe it vjill be one
of the last things we shall think of when
we die." So far the witty divine. and there
are a good many of us who have similar
To kiss one's sister is not particularly un
pleasant, but it is only a bread and butter
affair. Good, but not sweet. To kiss one's
cousin is somewhat different and gives a
jam taste to the operation, particularly if
she comes under the denomination, danger

cousin, that surpasses the other as far as
ice cream and cake surpass bread and jam.

Ammonia in leaking- Powders.
Among the recent discoveries in science
and chemistry none is more important than
the uses to which common ammonia can be
properly put as a leavening agent, and
which indicate that this familiar salt is
hereafter to perform an active part in the
preparation of our daily food.
The carbonate of ammonia is an exceed
ingly volatile substance. Place a small
portion of it upon a knife and hold over a
flame, and it will almost immediately be
entirely developed into gas and pass off into
the air. The gas thus formed is a simple
composition of nitrogen and hydrogen. No
residue is left from the ammonia. This
gives it its superiority as a leavening power
over soda and cream of tartar used alone,
and has induced its use as a supplement to
these articles. A small quantity of am
monia in the dough is effective in producing
bread that will be lighter, sweeter and more
wholesome than that risen by any other
leavening agent. When it is acted upon by
the heat of baking the leavening gas that
raises the dough is liberated. In this act it
uses itself up, as it were; the ammonia is
entirely diffused, leaving no trace or resi-,
dium whatever. The light, fluffy, flaky ap
pearance, so desirable in biscuits, etc.. and
so sought after by professional cooks, is
said to be imparted to them only by the use
of this agent.
The bakers and baking powder manufac
turers producing the finest goods have been
quick to avail themselves of this useful dis
covery, and the handsomest and best bread
and cake are now largely risen by the aid
of ammonia, combined, of course, with
other leavening material.
Ammonia is one of the best known
products of the laboratory. If, as seems to
be justly claimed for it, the application of
its properties to the purposes of cooking
results in giving us lighter and more whole
some bread, biscuit and cake, it will prove
a boon to dyspeptic humanity, and will
speedily force itself into general use in the
new field to which science has assigned it.

THE LIEUTENANT'S PHOTO.
"It was a cold day toward the end of the
autumn of 1879," said a Kussian officer,
"That I, Alexis Pletneff, sub-lieutenant of
the regiment of the Chevaliers Gardes de
'limperatrice, placed myself in the hands
of the well-kuown St. Petersburg coiffeur,
Deleitrl, and dolefully ordered him to shave
off my mustache, the cherished object of so
much care and attention. Alas, there was
no help for it. I had been unfortuuate.
enough to lose a wager to my pretty but
mischievous little cousin, Vera O •, who
had taken the very mean advantage thereof
to extort from me a promise to have my
photograph taken in female costume.
"In the space of two minutes my mus
tache, which had taken so many long,
weary years to grow, was gone, and Deleuri
was arranging my hair into a most elabor
ate coiffure, which he finally finished oft' by
pinning on my head an enormous Rubens
hat. trimmed with a great yellow bird with
its beak wide open. I had on a most elab
orate black silk carriage dreis with a velvet
mantle, and had it not been for my tall
stature and ungainly movements I could
have passed off as aby no means ill-look
ing young lady. Delenri and my servant
then helped me down stairs and across ths
pavement to my carriage, in which I was
driven rapidjy off to the court photographer. '
Levitsky, sitting as far back in the vehicle j
as possible, so as not to be seeu.
"In far too short a time I had arrived at
my destination, the chasseur handed me
out of the carriage, and, my deep blushes '
hidden by the veil, 1 began slowly to
aaeond the staircase leading to the photo
graphic atalier on the second floor. Sud- i
deuly, when about one-quarter of the way
up, I heard a door open on the first floor
landing, and, looking up, to my horror be
held the czar coming down stairs buttoning
his long military cloak over his uniform.
Being only 19 years of age at the time I
did what many older men would have done
in my place — that is to say. I completely
lost my presence of mind. Instead of
merely remaining where I was and court
seying as he passed, I drew myself up erect
as if on parade, with my right hand brought
to the side of uiv hat in true military sa
"The emperror, considerably surprised
at this behavior on the part of such a well
dressed young lady, came down the stairs,
stopped short in front of me, stared at me
for about half a minute from head to foot,
and finally exclaimed:
" 'What does this mean? W T ho are
"'Alexis Pletneff, sub-lieutenant of the
Chevalier Gardes I'lmperatrice, sire,' I re
plied, in fear and trembling.
" 'And what may be the meaning of this
masquerade?' he inquired, severely.
'• 'May it please your majesty, I have
lost a wager to my cousin, Vera O . and
have been called upon to pay forfeit by
having myself photographed in lady's
"Before I had finished the frown on the
czar's face had given way to that ever-mem
orable and winning smile which those who
have seen can never forget.
"'Well, go and have yourselfDphoto
graphed in accordance with your promise,
and afterward go to the general command
ing your regiment dressed as you are, and
tell him that I ordered you to report to him.'
With that he went down stairs, leaving me
convinced that my military career was
"I hardly know how I got through the
sitting for my portrait, which, however,
Levitsky pronounced very successful; but
an hour later I rang the bell at the door of
Gen. Baron H.s house. The orderly who
answered the door inquired politely: 'What
name shall I announce, miss?' and was
greatly staggered when I angrily ex
claimed: 'Why, you idiot, don't you know
me? Announce Lieut. Alexis Pletneff."
The man stared at me a minute, and then,
stuffing his handkerchief into his ugly
mouth to prevent his screaming with laugh
ter, went into the general's library aud
"I heard the general reply: 'Tell M.
pletneff to come in.' As 1 entered the room
the general, without looking up, bade me
take a seat until lie had finished a letter he
was writing. 1 sat for a few minutes. At
length he threw down the pen and raised his
eyes. Starting up, he exclaimed: 'I beg
ten thousand pardons, madame, for
keeping you waiting; but I understood one
of my servants to say that one of my officers
was here to see me.' There was no help
for it, so, standing up again erect as on the
staircase at the photographer's an hour pre
viously, 1 brought my right hand up to the
side of my hat in military salute, and said:
'Excellency, I am sub-lieutenant of your
regiment. For the sake of a wager I had
to go and get photographed iv this costume,
and on my way I met his majesty, who
ordered me to come and report myself to
you dressed as I was.' '0!' shouted the
dear old general, who was very fat aud
apoplectic. 'What! the emperor saw you?
The emperor! Why, the boy is lost!' and
almost choking he fell back in his arm
chair, gasping 'Water! water!'
"Seeing the old man in danger of a fit. I
yelled for assisstance, tore down the bell
rope, and attempred to unbutton the collar
of his uniform. Among the persons who
rushed into the room in answer to my calls
for help was the general's wife, who, see
ing her husband half insensible iv the arms
of a strange woman, as she thought, was
seized with a violent fit of jealousy.
"Catching hold of me in no gentle man
ner, and apostrophizing me as a 'shameless
minx,' and other equally polite epithets,
she attempted to pull me away.
11 'Why, I am not a she. Baroness; 1 am
a he,' exclaimed I, almost crying with vex
"At these words the baroness stared at
me for a minute, recognized me, and then,
notwithstanding the gravity of the situa
tion, fell into an utterly uncontrallable tit
of laughter. The general recovered after
a few minutes, and, having ordered me to
remain under arrest in his dining-room un
til his return, he buckled on his sword and
went off to the winter palace.
"Meanwhile, thanks to the indiscretion
of the ordeily, the story of my adventures
had spread like wildfire through the bar
racks, and within a quarter of an hour
every one of my brother officers were iv
the dining-room convulsed with laughter,
iv which, though in despair as to the fu
ture. 1 could not help joining. At last,
after about two hours, during which 1 had
been made to waltz or polka with each of
them in turn, the general returned and in
formed me, in his usual kind manner, that
the emperor had taken the matter most
"His majesty had ordered that I was to
remain under arrest for two days for ap
pearing in public without my sword, and
that as soon as nay photograph was ready I
was to go to the palace and present a copy
to the Emperor in person. Wheu a few
days after I reported myself to his majesty
he chaffed me in the kindest manner about
my appearance in petticoats, and was
pleased to express his high approval of the
portrait, which he made a point of keep
