For twenty-two years the New
For twenty-two years the New
York Diet Kitchen association has
been incorporated and dispensing its
relief to the sick poor. "There can
be no more needy class than the
helpless invalids, suffering and*
starving, dying for want of proper
food, unable to procure it for them
selves, and the victim of others' ig
norance and misfortune."
This was the sentiment which ani
mated the company of men and ,
women, who, on March 1, 1573, went J
before Judge Lawrence and became j
an incorporated association, with
Abby H. Gibbons as president. The
work which the association has
since accomplished canot be estimat
ed. Figures may aproximate the in
dividual aid given, but the indirect j
aid is beyond computation.
The figures for 1594 will speak for j
the distributions for one year, and |
imagination may supply the waves ■
of benefit. -which assuredly reached
far beyond the door of each kitchen.
The number of patients relieved in
1594 was 22,906; the highest number
at any one of the kitchens being
227 in a day. Over $3,500 was spent
for kitchen rents, service and food,
$6,195 of which was expended for
milk, rice, beef tea and eggs.
Five kitchens have been main
tained, one of which, at 269 Third
avenue, had to be ■ closed for lack :
of funds after five months' hard
work to keep it open. The others,, at
Thirty-sixth street and Ninth ave
nue, 619 East Fifth street, 1147 First
avenue and the Centennial kitchen,
in the New York Dispensary build
ing, are in successful operation.
To establish a kitchen the associa
tion rents a large room and places
a reliable woman in charge. She
cooks rice by the caldronful, receives
milk fresh every morning, some
months as much as 5,000 quarts, and
bread and beef tea in like quantities.
These she dispenses to the applicants
who bring requisition, tickets. These
are issued by physicians, are good
for a week and bear written on each
the name, address and kind of food
required. Generally two things are
ordered by the doctor milk and
rice or milk and bread. A quart of
milk is a day's allowance, except on
Saturdays, when a double portion is
necessary*, the kitchens being closed
on Sunday. Half a loaf of bread, or
its equivalent in rolls, as the supply
may hap"pen to be sent in, or a por
tion of cooked rice — about a quart
bowl full — the other usual ration.
The matron in charge opens her
doors at 9 a. m., and closes at 2 p.
m. In the afternoon she visits the
homes of her applicants, and insures
herself that help is being given
where most needed. That she sees
many pitiful sights is certain, and
that she also often finds the would-be
parasite of charity is not strange.
Her experience has taught her, dis
crimination, and the unworthy ones
are not permitted to carry on their
unprincipled shamming, but are re
ported to the doctor who gave the
Through the generosity of J. Wall
& Son, the' association received last
year 5,565 loaves of bread and 57,598
rolls, with boxes of cakes. The Fruit
and Flour mission contributed fruit,
groceries, delicacies for the sick,
clothing and toys last season, and
are repeating their benevolent work
this year.' Their mission is a beau
tiful one, and should appeal to ev
ery one who can give ever so little.
Their donations give not only ma
terial cheer, but lighten as well the
mental depression of many a bar
The association during last year
received various donations from per
sons who conducted concerts, fairs
and lectures for their benefit. A
large reception was given at the
Tiffany chapel, from which $205.50
was received. Church associations,
needlework guilds and sewing so
cieties frequently give garments and
infants* outfits, all of which articles
are judiciously distributed by the as
sociation. It is supported entirely by
donations, and is therefore an ever
ready means for private contribu
tions to be quickly utilized, from food
to money, flowers to toys. It has to
do with the poorest class alone— those
out of work, who have nothing with
which to buy daily food, and much
The depression in business has
given the society a hard struggle for
the last three years, and made the

her, more men out of work than ever
before. Of the 175 patients she
served dally, there were very few
who had work. "It is sad," she
".aid, "to see their abject misery and
despair. Certainly there is no class
of persons as wretched as the sick
poor. They cannot help themselves
and cannot pay to be helped by oth
ers; they need the most liberal aid.
Everything is kept scrupulously
clean in the kitchens by the- one
woman in charge. She has her hands
full all the time, for as soon as she
opens her door the applicants are
ready, and they leave no moment
idle till the hour for closing. By
this time the supply of food is ex
hausted, and sometimes long before,
.so that it has to be renewed.
The airy, clean room, cool in sum-
mer and warm in winter, is an at-
traction to many, and sometimes a

- kindly matron knows them
Jill, and has a pleasant word for each.
She gives a hint of welcome to an
[ old man, who sits down on the bench,
I looking too feeble to ever get up.
He is a consumptive, and his wan
look and hollow cheeks seem to mock
at the food dealt out to him. Can
any food put vigor into that wasted
frame?. His place is taken in a few
moments by a white-haired grand-
mother, carrying a forlorn little
baby suffering from cholera infant-
urn. Its parched lips and dull eyes
show that it is in the misery of the
teething period, while its pathetic
look of baby wretchedness appeals
powerfully to the spectator's pity.
A question or two . draws out the
commonplace story of woe — the
mother a consumptive, the father out
of work, the baby sick (how could
it be well with such Inheritance and
environment?), and the old grand-
mother too feeble to drag herself
about, yet having a shade more
strength than mother or babe.
Turning from these extremes of
age and babyhood suffering, there
comes to the matron a fairly well-
dressed young man of thirty, whose
palid face tells the story of disease.
Neat, cleanly and gentlemanly, he
appeared far from being an <d)ject
of charity. The matron explains,
when he has gone, that he was strick-
en with hemorrhages, and had in
consequence lost his place and was
starving when ferreted out by the
society. The daily quart of milk
and rice got at the kitchen was his
only food. How long could he look
so neat, with no one to help him,
no relatives and no money? A worse
time surely is in store for him, poor
The next applicant was a woman
whose face would have inspired
Death's grim pencil. Such concen
trated misery one does not often see.
She was recovering or .finishing, for
there was no look of regaining vigor
in that pinched, white face, whose
hollow eyes looked out on the world
with abject despair an attack
of pleurisy, at the height of which
her baby had died and her husband
had been thrown out of work.
"Oh!" sighed the matron as the
woman left, "I should have had
some beef tea for that poor soul;
but today there is only rice and milk
Then half a dozen boys and girls,
bare-footed, but neatly dressed,
passed their pails over the table
and went off smiling and happy, as
only children can. Their pleasant
faces made life brighter for the mo-
ment. They told their stories of
sickness at home, indeed, but their
youth and strength seemed to ter
n the stories after the rayless de-
spair that had preceded them.
WHAT TO EAT. •
Tomatoes in Many Forms-Green
Ones for Pickles.
The popular tomato was- flrst grown
as a curiosity and garden ornament.
It Is now utilized in many ways, both
-when green and when ripe. Tomatoes
are an invaluable ingredient in stews,
soups and sauces, and may be used for
catsups, pickl*s and preserves.
To serve fresh tomatoes, pour boil-
ing water on them until they are
covered and let them stand a few mo-
ments, when they may be easily peeled.
Put them on ice and let them remain
until perfectly cold. Then slice and
serve with a dressing or with pow
dered sugar, salt, pepper and vinegar.
A combination of claret and sugar is
considered a delicious dressing for to-
matoes. 7 '■■ ","'';
A fine tomato soup may be made
from one onion sliced. Rub together
three tablespoonfuls of flour, one ta
blespoonful of- butter, and a little to-
mato juice. Stir this into the boiling
mixture, season with salt and pepper,
and add one tablespoonful of sugar.

fire and add a piece of butter the size
of an egg, a little salt, four milk
crackers rolled very fine, and a dash
of cayenne pepper. Meanwhile have
heating one quart of rich milk. When
it is time to serve add the milk to
the tomato mixture with one teaspoon-
ful of soda. Let it remain only a mo-

An appetizing chowder may be made
with tomatoes in the following way:
Slice and cut into pieces a quarter of
a pound of salt pork and fry to light
brown; then add two onions chopped,
and when they are slightly browned
add one teaspoonful of flour. Cook
and stir for three minutes. Now add
one quart of bo — ng water, one table-
spoonful of washed rice and two quarts
of fresh tomatoes, pared and sliced.
-Season with a spoonful of salt and a
quarter of a teaspoonful of pepper.
Let it cook slowly for one hour.
Tomatoes are excellent stuffed and
baked. Select round tomatoes uniform
in size, wash and drain, and without
peeling cut off the top, take out the
inside, throw away the seeds, and chop
the remainder with one onion and part
of a green pepper. Thicken with nne
bread crumbs, add some melted but-
ter, and season with salt. Fill the
tomatoes with this mixture, allowing
the stuffing to project in a dripping
pan with a little water, and bake
in a moderate oven three-quarters of
an hour. V ; •
Tomatoes make a desirable dish for
a company luncheon when stuffed
with meat. Prepare the tomato as In
the above recipe. Chop fine any left
over cold meat or chicken to make one
cupful for six tomatoes; add to it one
chopped onion and one tablespoonful
of parsley and season with butter, salt,
and pepper. Mix thoroughly and fill
the tomatoes, heaping them. Cover
them with bread crumbs and. put in a
pan with one cup of water, six cloves,
one bay leaf, and a tablespoonful of
butter. Bake half an hour, basting sev
eral times with the liquid. Place the
tomatoes on a hot platter and to the
sauce add half a cup of boiling water,
salt and cayenne pepper.and two table
| spoonfuls of f*onr moistened with a lit-
tle water. Flavor with the juice of a
lemon and sherry wine. Stir until it
boils; then strain over the tomatoes.
Spiced tomatoes make a delicious
relish for meats. To seven pounds of
peeled tomatoes add four pounds of
granulated sugarcane pint of vinegar,
and one ounce each of whole cloves,
cinnamon, allspice and ginger. Put all
in a porcelain kettle, and place over
the fire. Cook slowly until am thick as
required. Put in jelly glasses and

A dainty way of serving tomatoes
with the chafing dish at a luncheon or
Sunday night tea is after the following
dressing: Rub to a cream four table-
spoonfuls of butter, two tablespoon-'
fuls of powdered sugar, and a generous
teaspoonful' of ground mustard. Add
half a teaspoonful of salt and a pinch
of cayenne pepper. Rub into the mix-'
ture the pulverized yolks of two hard-
boiled eggs. Heat four tablespoon'
fuls of vinegar. Then add it and final-
ly a beaten raw egg. 'Set the dish con-
taining the mixture in a pan of boiling
water and cook very slowly until the
consistency of cream. Stir constantly
to make It smooth, and set. aside to
cool. Peel some ripe, firm tomatoes.

1 The dressing may be used hot or cold.
Tomato jelly Is an appetizing and
effective relish. To make It dissolve
half a box of gelatine in half a pint of
i cold water and add one quart of stew
i ed tomatoes, a generous teaspoonful of
! sugar, and salt and cayenne pepper to
j taste. Strain through a sieve while

j lemons sliced very, thin, and one-quar
ter of a pound of ginger root scraped
and cut into thin pieces. - Place in a
porcelain kettle and cook- very slowly
three hours. Put in glasses or jars,
but do not cover until cold.
Green tomatoes make excellent
pickles. Wash and slice one peck of
green tomatoes, six onions, and four
large green peppers. Lay them hi a
stone jar and sprinkle over them two
cups of salt. Pour on them enough
water to cover, and let them stand
twenty-four hours. Pour off the wa.
ter and cook with vinegar enough to
cover, adding one tablespoonful each
of cloves, allspice, and cinnamon, two
tablespoon of horseradish, and one
generous cup of brown sugar. Let
the tomatoes be thoroughly scalded.
Put away In stone jars and pour on
vinegar enough to cover them.
AN ADAMLESS EDEN.
Dr. Mary Walker's Latest Scheme
If the new woman really exists, which
a good many people seem to doubt,
she will now have an opportunity to
materialize and colonize. Dr. Mary
Walker is going to give h r one.
Through Lawyer Henry C. Benedict
of Oswego, N. V.' Dr. Mary has bought
a farm containing 135 acres of land
' seven miles west of that city, and pro-
poses to form a colony im which man
shall have no part. Only women who
will bind themselves to a life of ccli-
bacy while members of the community
and to wear bloomers for life are to hi
eligible. They will work the farm in
all its details, plant and harvest the
crops, dispose of them in market, and
take care of the stock.
"We will all live in a large, com-
modious farmhouse, for which I am
having plans prepared," said Dr.
Walker to a reporter for the New York
Herald. "Every member will have
her own room. Portiers will take the
place of doors. Steam will be employed
for heating purposes, and th:re will be
bathrooms and every convenience to be
found in a well regulated and modern
"I shall give my personal supervision
to the establishment. Members, how-
ever, will elect officers twice a year to
conduct it. There will be an auditing
board to look after all accounts, an Im
provement board to look after improve-
ments to the property, and a governing
"It shall be the duty of the,chairman
of the latter to report all infractions of
the rules of the members., There will be
two judges chosen. One will have pow
ers similar to a police magistrate. The
other will have a position analogous to
our general term. Those accused of
infractions of the rules will be tried by
a jury of five, and, if not satisfied with
the judgments of the lower courts they
can appal to me. I will sit as a court
of last resort.
CANNOT FLIRT OR "GAD."
"The rules of evidence, as governing
our state judiciary, will apply. There
will be no imprisonments; all punish-
ments will consist of withdrawal of
privileges for a certain length of time.
If we should get into our fold undesir-
able women, who flirt or gad about
with men when they go to market or
on other occasions, they, will, after
suitable warning, i>. expelled. All
women of gcod character between the
ages of fifteen and thirty-five years
are eligible to membership. I am cer-
tain that the farm can be made to sup-
port Any or seventy-five persons.
"Each member will have a share in
the profits after the expense for board
and clothing has been deducted. The
remainder will go Into a general fund
for betterments and the purchase of
adjoining lands, if it is deemed neces
sary and the community grows as
rapidly as I believe it will. I have
not decided whether it would be wise
to exact an initiation fee or not. If
it is so decided it will be comparatively
small. 7:7 Y l'7:"~.
*** "Any member will, after three years
in the community, be eligible to re-
tire, taking with her the amount of |
the initiation fee, if one has been !
charged, and seven-eighths of her '
shard of the earnings, the other eighth
to go into the general fund.
"My great object is to educate and
to turn out new women, as the news-
paper men term them. They will be
women who have governed themselves.
I expect lots of politics in the com-
munity, and the members will soon be
able to hold their own, I warrant,
with some of the so-called statesmen
of the present day. •
"Besides it will not all be farm work.
There will be many hours each day
for study, and the curriculumi will be
as broad and extended as that in any
of our universities. There will be fre
quent lectures in a large assembly-
room I propose to have, and current
literature, politics, and questions of
the day will be discussed. The mem-
bers can ride bicycles and a number
will be kept for their use.
TO MAKE NEW WOMEN.
"There will be horses, but no side
saddles. My girls will ride astride, as
do the men, and I predict that three
years of life in our institution will
make the members the peer of any
man physically or mentally. I will
not make rules that defy all the laws
of nature and exact pledges binding
for life. That of dress will be the only
life pledge that will be asked.
"The site selected for the colony is a
delightful one, in the very heart of the
finest fruit country in New York state.
Several acres of the land have been
used in raising the famous Oswego
county strawberries. There Is a fine
apple orchard, several hundred pear
trees, and four acres devoted to vine-
yard. It is a beautiful place, and un-
less all my plans fail it will be a per-
feet Garden of Eden, but without an
"What will it be called? Jan. 1 next
I hope to be able to announce the
name. It has not yet been selected."
The doctor. is enjoying good health,
and her plans are being carefully
made. Many prominent women of this
city interested in the advancement of
women have been consulted and ap-
prove of the scheme. * 7"V
A Sensible Countess.

cussed and are universally known, but

ty. Nevertheless, our day is coming,
and we are beginning to have our ad-
mirers and copyists. A French coun

Lace and jewels, two of the most
costly items of the femine toilet, are
going to be in greater demand than
ever during the coming season; in-
deed, gowns made entirely of precious
Venetian point or chantilly, both black
and white— l mean where chantilly is j
concerned, of course— will be consid- i
ered as the most perfect of evening
dresses. I saw one In point-de-venise,
ordered by Queen Natalie of Servia!'
which was marvelously beautiful. It
was made over a dessous of Duchess
satin in a peculiarly soft tint of vert
jeune pousse (budding green), the skirt
. and bodice in one piece en princesse,
for it would amount almost to a mur
der to cut and slash so handsome a
material; the sleeves not very volumin
ous, but still quite puffy, and the low-
necked top of the corsage finished off
by a flat band of the pale green, coy-
ered with cabochon emeralds, match-
, ing a belt and sleeve bracelets of the
same glittering gems. Let me add
here that emeralds are steadily com-
ing to the front, especially the cabo-
chon, or uncut ones; splendid tiaras of
these deep-green stones seem ' to be
made on purpose for blondes, while
brunettes can console themselves by
investing in diadems of rubies, or if
their purses should forbid such very
expensive luxuries, I was shown in
the Rue de la Paix the other day some
burnt topazes intermingled with dia
monds, which were lovely enough to
tempt the most critical.
In furnishing a room, it is a very
safe rule to take the plumage of any
one bird as one's model, and confine
one's -self to its tint. The peacock,
the pheasant, the rose and gray par-
rot, and the jay are examples that will
show how perfectly easily the theory
can be applied to the coloring and the
decoration of rooms. In a room fur-
nished in dull reds, hammered brass-
work tells most wonderfully against
the walls, and so also does the dark
green of palms or ferns.
A field full of beautiful white asters
that decorated . the house at a recent
wedding were sowed by the bride and
groom in anticipation of the occasion.
They were of the white that inclines to
the faintest pink, and were, ' in com-
bination with green, a charming deco-
ration. At a number of doorways
where portieres of smilax were used
immense clusters of the flowers were
used to tie them back. At another
wedding all the florists contributed
as many orange-trees as possible for
a staircase decoration, where the green
of the foliage and the yellow fruit
that the trees bore stood out against"
a white background. •= •*• "•>
The interior of a pretty cottage hung
The interior of a pretty cottage hung-
with inexpensive but artistic papers
has the reception hall, a large room,
with two platforms in the stairway,
covered with a pale old-rose cartridge-
paper that Inclines to gray, on which
there is a conventional arabesque de-
sign in deeper rose, gray, and a touch
of gold. The paper stops at a plaster
moulding which is tinted a warm gray,
with touches of red. The ceiling is a
pale gray. The woodwork is also
painted a pale gray. Another dainty
and restful color scheme is used in the
parlor, where the coloring is pale dull
blue, white, and silver; in a bedroom,
where the coloring is seagreen in vari
ous tones, white, and a very little gold.
The prevalence of the Delft china
fad has made Delft furniture popular.
There are stores which exhibit whole
rooms furnished in graceful chairs,
tables, desks, cabinets and even sofas
and beds, which have no other color
than the blue and white, and which
show old fashioned Delft designs on
headboards, footboards, backs and in
all sorts of unlikely places. A hang-
ing cabinet, consisting of three or four
white enameled shelves, -with white
enameled sides and back and diamond
paned glass doors, with the woodwork
adorned in Delft blue sketches, is
among the prettiest of the examples
of this sort.

An impossible shaped chair, with a
triangular seat, is among the sea-
son's graceful absurdities. The back
is almost triangular, and, although
the front is broad and the arms are

comes in white and gold, with wonder-
ful satin upholstering.
The fashionable clock has a Dresden
case, or Delft, while those of onyx
and gold or of dark-colored marble
are for the present out of fashion.
Every house keeps the latter, for there
are persons of conservative tastes who
like their heavy, gloomy richness, and '
will have no other. There is, how- I
ever, Dresden and Dresden, and Delft
and Delft. The real Dresden clocks,
with cases of royal blue and gold,
and beautiful little Watteau paintings
on the face under the dial, make lovely
drawing-room mantel clocks; those of
white china, with modest and not
over-choice flower decorations, are
liked for bedrooms. Other medium- I
priced clocks, a few of which are
tasteful, though severe in outline, are
of iron, imitating . the expensive mar-
ble clacks. Many of the Iron clocks
are too garish with heavy, clumsy •
decorations of gilt. Pretty small clocks
for bedrooms or the boudoir writing-
desk are of French gilt, and cost only |
$2.50 or $3. One has, of course, to take
the works of all low-priced clocks on j
faith, but they are often very satis- I
factory timekeepers for a number of I
years. • . yy"V

p , REST. i , 1Y .•
We are so tired, my heart and I, : .
Of all things here beneath the sky
One thing only would please us best-
Endless, unfathomable rest.
We are so tired; we ask no more
Than just to slip out by life's door;
And leave behind the noisy rout
And everlasting turn about.
Once it seemed well to run on too
With her importunate, fevered crew,
And snatch amid the frantic strife
Some morsel from the board of life.
But we are tired. At Life's crude
We ask no gift she understands,'
But kneel to him she hates to crave
The absolution of the grave.

AN APPEAL. .7
O hear me, cruel-hearted thief,
This is my last appeal to you!
Here read the cause of all my grief, .
: And see the mischief that you do. \
You took from me my tender heart,
Though you it could no profit
! Now mine is but an idle, part;
i " I have no heart for anything."
You robbed me of my healthful sleep,
To me the night no more brings
Your haunting graces round me
Whene'er my troubled pillow's
You stole my appetite away,
Alas! I can no longer eat;
The dining hours that sweetened day
Have lost the charm that made
Give back, give back all these again,
And you I will forever bless;
For me to live with none were vain,
While you can surely live with less.
Or, if a part you wish to keep, ,
. I yield perforce unto your might;
So hold you then, my heart and sleep,
But O, return my appetite!

Andrew F. Burleigh, the Western re-
ceiver for the Northern Pacific rail-
road, is essentially a Yankton man,
having gone to Yankton when only
three years old, and it is there that his
parents and grand parents reside. He
was born at Kltta>nlng, Pa., Jan. 7,
1858, and went to Yankton. in 1861 with
his father, who had been appointed
agent. for the Yankton Indians, and
who was afterwards delegate in con-
gress from Dakota territory. At the
time of young Burleigh's advent into
Dakota, his grandfather, Andrew J.
Faulk, was governor. When old enough
to attend school young Andrew Bur-
leigh was sent to Phillip* academy. In
1878 he graduated from the law school
of the lowa State university, and en-
gaged In the practice of hi's profession
at Yankton, but he soon went to Dead-
wood, where, being burned out in 1879,
he moved to Miles City, where he first
engaged in politics. He is a man of
pleasing manners, and was soon elect-
ed prosecuting attorney for Custer
counTy. In 1889 he moved to Seattle,
where he became associated with some
of the. best legal talent in the state,
and in 1891 was appointed counsel for
the Oregon Improvement company, and
was j, corporation attorney or , the
Northern Pacific railroad. His cam-
paign speeches during the campaign of :
ISM on the financial 'questions of the
day-won for him the praise of the Re-
publican party. Mr. Burleigh has
three children by his first wife, from
whom he is divorced. He married his
second wife two years ago. 7

ABOUT THE f AfllVl.
How to Feed Barley.
The abundance and low price of bar-
ley makes It very desirable for stock,
as is illustrated by the following ex-
"Barley Is exceedingly rich 'ln the
fattening properties of food. It is sel
dom, and never should be, given In Its
dry whole state as food for stock,
but in the form of rough meal or
malt, or cooked, It is employed very
extensively In feeding stock. When
barley Is cooked it must be allowed
to simmer slowly at least twelve hours,
until the whole forms a mass of rich,
pulpy matter, perfectly free from
whole grains, and in cooking the great-
est care must be taken to prevent
the barley from becoming burned by
adhering to the boiler In which it Is
prepared. When . thoroughly cooked It
becomes a most valuable ingredient
in the food of fattening animals, and
horses thrive remarkably well upon It
—so much so that* a course of boiled
barley given at least once a day will
very soon renovate horses that have
been without hard work. Boiled 'bar-
ley is used by some of the most sue-
cessful exhibitors of shorthorns in the
preparation of" their cattle! for the
show yards. Along with a little oil
cake it gives "that finish— brings out
that mellowness in handling—
Is so much to be desired in such cases.
For the fattening of pigs barley meal
is the king of foods. For pork produc
tion, it is, on account of the exception-
ally high percentage of starchy mat-
ter, the most perfect food yet dis-
covered, and) no other animal will
yield a larger percentage of butcher
meat from a given quantity of barley
than a pig of good sort. Whole barley
should be steeped in water at least
twenty-four hours before being given
to stock, but the more common prac
tice now is to grind it or crush it into
rough meal. Some think it is advis-
able to steep the ground barley in
American Cattle in England.
A correspondent of the London Live
Stock Journal of Sept. 20, has this to
say incidentally with regard to the con-
dition of American cattle as they now
come into the English market:
With regard to the United States cat-
tle boats, they are now fitted to per-
fection, as a rule, and tha quality and
condition of the great bulk of the cat-
tle landed here would be a surprise to
many. They are put upon the Deptford
market in far and away better condi
tion than that in .which the Irish cat-
tle come to any of our markets; and,
more than that, they have a much less
traveled appearance than the ordinary
run of cattle exposed in our markets
after from twelve to twenty-four
hours' trucking by rail. It is only
those who have actually seen these
beasts many times who can realize the
truth of this statement As stated on
a former occasion, the States beasts
are nearly all polled, not from sawing
off the horns of adult cattle, but from
the application of caustic potash to
that portion of the crown where the
horns would appear, after carefully
cutting away the hair, before the calf
is three days old. This is: a course
which breeders of store stock in this
country (and especially In Ireland)
might adopt with great advantage. In
looking over a large lot of States cat-
tle at Deptford on Saturday, I saw only
two or three which had stubs of horns
sawn off. This is a matter which I
am particularly glad to record.

A. G. H. in Home, Farm and Fancier.
My recent travels, in quest of Items
of interest to my readers, have taken
me to the experimental farm of more
' Yah one Southern state, and I have
seen with my own eyes the wholesome
results of this dipping process, under
advice of the agricultural department
at Washington, applied to a dozen dif
ferent breeds, and all ages, and I will
tell you in a few words how to clear
out all the lies by dipping the chickens.
Fill a barrel, say two-thirds . full of
either of the following:
One part coal oil to 20 parts water.
One part carbolic acid to 100 parts
water. One part oil of sassafras to 80
parts water. One part oil of penny-
royal to 60 parts water.
or a strong decoction of tobacco, pen-
nyroyal or sassafras.
To mix the oils with water, emulsify,
first, by mixing with an equal part of
hot sweet milk, or soft soap well beat-
en. To make soft soap, reduce hard
soap to jelly by boiling each pound in
two gallons of water until dissolved.
Have the bath warm.
Take the fowl by the head and feet,
and souse him into the bath until he
is soaked to the skin, head legs and all,
then turn him loose to shake and dry
Dip every fowl on the premises, then
with a spray pump spray the dipping
huid all over nests, roosts and walls of
the poultry house.
Buying; Power of Wheat.
Buying: Power of Wheat.
Correspondence Country Gentleman.
It has been asserted that wheat at
the present low prices can only be
raised here a loss, and that farmers
continue to raise it from the force of
habit, or because it is in their regular
rotation, and they want a crop to seed
the ground with to grass, and don't
know what to substitute in its place.
There must be some mistake in the
arithmetic of those who make these
assertions. Farmers generally are not
stupid enough to endure continual
losses for years before finding it out,
or rich enough to stand It long. Their
continuance in raising wheat is prima
facie evidence that it is not raised at
a loss. 7 ■.7777 ;y „
Wheat is nearly twice as low now as
it was before the civil war, and infla
tion of prices, but nearly everything
the farmer has to buy (except labor,
coffee and whisky) has fallen in the
same proportion. I have before me the
books of my father and a merchant
who kept a store at Sugar Run from
1852 till 1860. In 1854, owing to the ray-
ages of the weevil or midge wheat
went up to $2 per bushel, but the
average price for eight years, from
1852 to 1860, was $1.28 per bushel.
The price of a bushel of wheat will
now buy as much sugar, molasses, sal-
aratus, and oil for lights; more tea,
brown sheetings, calicoes and cotton,
and woolen goods; fancy goods, no-
tions, nails, shelf hardware, building
hardware, - and more than twice as
much salt, as it would in the period
mentioned. Every one will admit that
owing to the Improved implements for
preparing the ground, sowing the seed
and harvesting the grain (notwith-
standing the higher wages of labor),
can be raised cheaper now than then. '
• The Increase of Tenantry. Y-J
Wallace's Farmer. 7U— Y.
These figures cover a . sufficiently
wide extent of the country and are
sufficiently uniform- to show that the
causes which led to the increase of
tenant .farming are general. There
are two or three reasons for this. One
class of landlords are farmers who
have retired from business, have gone
to the nearest town, and have rented
their farms to their sons, perhaps, or
son-in-laws. Another class is com-
posed: of farmers who have been pros-
perous "and- have invested their sav
ings 'in land, considering it the safest
investment, in which they are alto-
gether right, and rent it out to ten-
ants. Another class are business men
who have more confidence in fertile
dirt than in manufacturing enter-
prises or corporation; stock and have
salted j down their earnings, satisfied ) if
they can secure anywhere from 4 to 6
per cent on their Investment. and keep
up the value of their lands- *

A Topeka, ' Kans., dispatch says:
During the last four days more than
200 head of cattle have died in West-
crn Kansas from eating the second
growth of sorghum, which is rank
poison. The crop of sorghum is very-
large in Western Kansas, and the sec-
ond growth is exceedingly rank. Many
farmers turned their cattle into the
fields to eat it down, and death has re-
sulted in nearly every case. In Phil-
ips county nearly fifty head died from
eating this forage, while reports from
other counties state that the loss has
been heavy. . In Stanton county a herd
of forty fat steers died within two
hours after eating sorghum forage.
The Drover's Journal says: There is
an unusual amount of sickness among

disposed of for fear they will be at-
tacked. With this state of affairs the
summer packing season, having a de-
crease so far from the very light sea-
son last year, of 845,000 hogs, it looks
as if the hog and provision bears were
organizing entirely too hard for their
own future welfare. There is no part
of this country where there is an un-
usual number of hogs and there are
large areas where the supply is far
below the average.

greater amount of storm energy dur-
ing the period from the 20th to the 23d

dates. The equator is a purely imag

not produce the slightest perceptible
