CARLETON COUNTY'S FARMERS
HAVE DECIDED OX THAT
THEIR EYES WERE
11 V A VISIT TO THE STATE AG-
RICULTURAL SCHOOL AT
SHEEP RAISING, IT WAS SEEK,
Will Pay Heller Than to Raise
Grain and Vegetables at Pre-
The delegation of members of the
Carleton County Agricultural asso
ciation, which arrived in St. Paul
Monday night, visited the state agri
cultural school at St. Anthony Park
yesterday for the purpose of making
investigation concerning the ques
tion of devoting more attention in the
future to stock raising and less to
the cultivation of grains. Whatever
may have been the opinion of the
delegates heretofore they are now,
as a result of yesterday's visit, of
the belief that the future pursuit
of the Minnesota farmer should
largely, and doubtless will, be the
raising of stock.
The Carleton county men were
shown a drove of sixteen sheep
which had been pastured for five and
one-half months upon one acre of
land, and figuring from the present
market prices the increase in weight
of the sheep was such that the in
come derived from that one acre
amounted to $22. This demonstrated
to the gentlemen the possibilities of
Minnesota in this department, and
the income which could be derived
from an average farm in this state.
The delegates left the corner of
Fifth and Wabasha at 9 o'clock yes
terday morning, and were met in St.
Anthony Park by Col. Liggett, who
escorted them to the office of the
agricultural school, where they were
introduced to Prof. Brewster, prin
cipal of the college, and several mem
bers of the faculty. They then went
to the class room of Prof. Hayes,
who delivered a lecture before them,
in which the general work and plans
of the school were outlined. He said
that the college was entirely differ
ent from any other in any state, in
that nothing was taught that did
not apply directly to farming. In
other so-called agricultural schools
very little instructions were given in
those departments of science that
were of specific value to those who
desired to farm, but in the Minne
sota school the entire course of study
applies directly to that work. The
adaptability of certain grains and
fruits for certain kinds of soil and
conditions of climate, and the care
of poultry and stock are all taught
from a scientific standpoint. In this
manner the full possibilities of the
state may be realized.
The delegation then listened to a
lecture from Prof. Shaw. He said:
"The master of investigation which
has brought you gentlemen here to-
day is one of considerable interest to
me and which must be investigated by
the farmers of the state of Minnesota
If they expect it to make any rapid ad
vancements. With the present condi
tion of prices it is a grave mistake to
raise more grain than can be con
sumed upon the farm. The experi
ments which have been conducted at
our school clearly demonstrate* that
the future of this state Is in stock
raising. This is true of all the states
of the Northwest, but of this one par
ticularly. In this regard the possibil
ities are almost unlimited, and those
who are first to make a specialty of
this branch will realize great profit.
Such grain can be raised as makes ex
cellent pasture land, and the income is
much greater when fed to stock than
when sold directly.
"By experimenting here we have
found that one of the best articles for
pasture is sorghum. This is a new
discovery, but from the results of our
experiments I predict that it will come
into quite general use for this pur
pose. It is particularly fitted for sheep
pasture. I advocate the use of pota
toes and turnips as food for stock.
When- given in moderate quantities,
mixed with grain, they are a very
great aid to digestion. Turnips are
better for this and their yield is larger
per acre than potatoes. I do not be
lieve it pays, however, to raise them
for the purpose of (stock food exclu
sively. We have made some extensive
experiments here upon that question
and find that they bring about 71/2 cents
per bushel when fed In large quanti
ties and twice that amount when fed
moderately. In giving them to horses,
cattle and sheep it is not necessary to
cook them, but for hogs they should
always be so prepared. I hope that
many of the farmers here today will
resolve to give more attention, here
after, to stock raising; but if you do
1 advise you to make a careful study
of it. Your whole success in this work
will rest in your knowledge of proper
food and care of the stock. I feel safe
in saying that the diseases of stock,
not excepting hog cholera, come from
The gentlemen were then shown

exhibited upon which experiments in
root foods were to be made. Prof.

Col. Llggitt, who acted as guide
throughout the day, made a brief speech
of welcome, which was responded to by
several of the members. Dr. Brewster
also welcomed the Carleton county vis
itors; and said that It was- the first
time in the history of the school that a
similar delegation had visited them, and
that they were encouraged to know
that the people of ' Carleton county
showed so much interest in the insti

Prof. Hecker, who teaches dairy hus
bandry, said that he. believed, from his
observations and experiments, that Min
nesota was particularly adapted for
stock raising and that such pasture
could be cultivated here as to make ex
cellent food for dairy cows. In this
connection he explained the Importance
of selecting the right kind of stock for
this locality. He told In detail -the

MAKING PLASTER CASTS.
New Occupation That Even Chil-
drcn Can Engage In.
Plaster casts are not at all difficult to
make, and it would repay those who
would like some new occupation for
their leisure to try the experiment,
says the New York Tribune. There
are many natural objects that would
make good subjects, and It would in
terest children greatly, besides being
an excellent object lesson, to make
their own casts to draw from. Besides
the amusement, they would in this
way get a capital idea of the real form
of the object of which they are to give
the characteristics on a fiat plane sur
face in their drawing lessons. . An ap
ple or a pear presents the easiest form
to begin with, and nuts, vegetables,
and even leaves are not difficult Hands
and feet make very interesting casts,
and those of very young children or
babies are exquisitely pretty, the only
difficulty being in keeping the restless
little creatures still long enough for the
plaster to "set."
To make a good plaster cast the first
necessity is to get good fresh plaster
of Paris, as that which is kept too long
absorbs the moisture in the air and be
comes unreliable.. The object which Is
to be "taken" is then washed thor
oughly with soap and water, and then
painted with a soft brush which has
been dipped in soap and water, so that
the entire surface Is covered with
moisture. The plaster of Paris is then
mixed to the consistency of very thick
cream, and is put on the object with a
flat spoon that comes for the purpose.
If the object is very simple and flat in
shape it may be completely covered,
but If at all intricate a "piece mold"
would better be made. This is done by
putting the plaster on in parts, and as
soon as it hardens or "sets" the rest
is added. Sometimes the whole object
is smeared over and cut up in sections
with a fine saw after it has set
With the mold for a hand or foot the
sculptors have a way of twisting a silk
thread around the hand and drawing it
through at certain places just before
the plaster hardens, which divides it
Into pieces. A few experiments In
making a mold will show what is need
ed in this way. After the mold Is per
fectly hard it is cleaned with a soft
camels-hair brush and water and the
parts fitted together and bound with a
cord, one small piece being left off to
pour the plaster through. The mold Is
then wet with soapy water amd the
plaster of Paris is poured in, a little at
a time, turning the mold In such a way
that the plaster may run all over the
inside surface and fill every crevice.
As the plaster hardens very fast it
must be added to without any stop un
til the whole is finished and the last
piece pressed into place on the soft
plaster. When sufficient time has
elapsed to insure the object being well
set the mold is unbound and each piece
taken off with a chisel and hammer,
great care being taken not to injure the
casting inside, which will come out like,
a beautiful surprise. Any roughness
that indicates the joinings of the pieces
of tho mold may easily be chiseled off.
FINGER KAILS ARE SYMBOLS.
Their Growth Murks Gentility in
Now that the French have finished
their campaign in Madagascar atten
tion in Paris, says the New York
World, is directed to Annam, where
the French have important interests
and where some of the most curious
customs on earth prevail.
Here there is a law against married
men leaving the country. In Annam
also the finger nails of the "upper
classes are allowed to grow to an ex
traordinary length, as an outward sym
bol of their gentility.
Nobody, of course, can do work or
perform service of any kind with long
finger nails projecting a foot or more
and liable to injury. Even writing is
impossible to such persons.
You may know an aristocrat in An
nam by his long finger nails. The man
with the longest finger nails is the lead
er of Annam society. Aristocrats in
that country have to be attended at all
hours of the day and night by ser
vants, who perform for them the most
The Annam ladies cannot comb their
hair. They cannot even feed them
selves for fear of damaging their long
and beautiful finger nails. No poor
man in Annam can have finger nails
even a few inches long, as he cannot
afford to employ the servants which
that would necessitate.
This absurd practice has prevailed In
Annam for many centuries. The lower
classes there have as much reverence
for long finger nails as do the lower
classes ln England for long ancestral
trees. It will thus be seen that An
nam is more of a democracy than Eng
land, for the son of a newly rich - >r
chant can cultivate finger nails as ling
as those of the king, while the Annam-
Ite of even the bluest blood, once he
is deprived of his wealth and servants,
must cut his finger nails and descend
among the common herd.
His ancient lineage is then cf no ac»
count. So long as his finger nails re
main short 'he is a person of no im
portance. Many swells In Annam have
never had their finger nails cut since
the day they were born.

The Chicago Great Western road
The Chicago Great Western road
yesterday filed a complaint in the
district court in an injunction suit
to restrain the St. Paul Union Depot
company from in any way interfer
ing with train No. 6 on plaintiff's
road running into and departing
from the union depot. The com
plaint alleges that in September,
1594, the plaintiff secured the re
quired amount of stock In the de
fendant corporation to give it the
right to depot accommodations for
all the trains necessary for its pas
senger traffic; that train No. 6, run
ning between St. Paul and Dodge
Center, is necessary to the proper
handling of its passenger traffic, but
that the defendant has instructed its
employes to prevent it from running
in and out of the depot, to erase it
from the schedule of trains arriving
at and departing from the depot,
and to refuse to sell tickets there
for. The complaint is signed by D.

SHIPMENTS OF DILI TH.
An Immense Business Done There
the Past Season.
The season of navigation at Duluth
Is substantially at an end, and, so far
as ore is concerned, the total of ship
ments is now being made up. No ex
act figures have been made public this
year by either the Iron Range or Mis
sabe roads, but the total for Duluth &
Two Harbors will not be very far from
3,500,000 tons, which is something of an
increase over the total for last year.
The amounts shipped by the two roads
will not be far from equal.
From Duluth both the mines and
road could have made a better record
but were prevented, not so much by
high freights, though the figure on ore
has been exalted, as by the absolute
impossibility of getting tonnage. For
the past few days the cold has pre
vented storing any ore in the dock
pockets, and necessitated direct load
ing. This has not hastened shipments.
Both roads are contemplating a busi
ness next year that will be far in ex
cess of anything ever done at the head
of the lake in ore. The Missabe is al
ready building a new dock, half as
large as that now in operation, and the
Iron Range will rebuild one of its
docks at Two Harbors. To the in
creased shipments thus made possible
during the next season of navigation
will be added the large output certain
to be mined by the Mahoning company
at Hibbing, which will ship its ore
over the Wright & Davis road and into
Superior over the Duluth & Winnipeg.
The ore will be shipped from the fine
dock built at Allouez bay by the Win
nipeg read at the time the original
traffic contract was made by the Mer
ritts and the Chase-Grant regime in
the Missabe road's affairs. This dock
for the three years of its existence has
done practically no business, only a
few experimental cargoes having been
sent to Cleveland from there. The
Mahoning company next year will be
ready to do an extensive business, and
an iron man, who is an authority, has
made the statement that the shipments
from Duluth, Superior and Two Har
bors will reach the 5,000,000 mark, and
that it is a matter of only one season
or two before the Duluth district will
head the list of Lake Superior ore
The general marine business of Du
luth during the season, now practical
ly closed, has more than kept pace
with the advance in ore shipments.
"When the figures of the collector's
report are made public this year," said
a custom house official a day or two j
ago, "not only Duluth and the state,
but the vesselmen themselves, will be
surprised. The increase over last year
and, for that matter, over all preced- '
ing seasons, is something wonderful. j
We hardly know ourselves how it *
would be until we were asked by a
commercial body in Boston for some
figures. A rough footing up was made
and when the official figures are ready
for publication there will be a sur- !
The closing of the season naturally
suggests some question as to how the
vessel men have fared. Some idea of
the carrying capacity of the new mod
ern carriers can be obtained by citing
the case of the Victory, which recently
loaded ot 160,000 bushels of wheat in a
.single cargo and carried it from Duluth
to Buffalo. At the top-notch of rates
for the year such a cargo would rep-
resent nearly $10,000 in freight. To this
can be added a considerable sum for
the net earning on a cargo of freight
up. A modern freighter of large ca
pacity with such business during a
whole season could show a profit at the
end of the year that would represent
a large proportion of the first cost.
In addition to Its bearing on the ques
tion of earnings the cargo of the Vic
tory mentioned calls also to mind the
tremendous Increase that has been
made in carrying capacity in the last
few years. The vessels that two years
ago were cracks, are now ln the second
or even third class. It Is hardly five I
years ago that the first single cargo
of over 100,000 bushels of wheat was
loaded out of Duluth for Buffalo.

. The pineapple is by far the most ex-
pensive fruit grown in this country.
Each plant produces only a single
fruit and then dies, but the suckers
become bearing plants for a subse
quent year. The fruit' requires to be
grown in hothouses especially devoted
to the pineapple, success being best
assured by maintaining a minimum
of 60 degrees to 65 degrees of air
warmth, and 75 degrees of bottom heat.
High prices are often paid for those
out-of-season hothouse 'delicacies
which are produced mostly during the
winter months, to vary the dinner table
of wealthy epicures able to pay fancy
prices for them. Strawberries grown
in this way cost one shilling each, or
£3 per pound, and the Worthing grow
ers raised the price to 4 guineas a
pound this year. Peaches frequently
bring 7 shillings 6 pence each, and
grapes 10 shillings a pound.

of St. Paul, Say of Kola
Mr. John T. Hemphill, Secretary of
the Board of Trade, Minneapolis, and
for many years identified with the
business Interests of the Flour City,
writes as to the beneficial effects of
Dr. Charcot's Kola Nervine Tablets:
"I have been afflicted with nervous
troubles for eight or ten years and my
, system was run down to such an extent
that it affected both my appetite and
sleep. About two months ago I com-
menced to take your Kola Nervine
Tablets, since when there has been a
! steady and marked improvement. My
; appetite is much better, my sleep more
| sound and refreshing and my mind is
i clearer and acts better. The conditions
| of the present era seem conducive to
nervous complications and the terrible
strain undergone during the panicky
times of the past three years has given
every business man more care and.
worry than the system is capable of
enduring. For these troubles I regard
the Kola Nervine Tablets as a genuine

A. H. Mlchener, the well known In
surance man of Minneapolis, with an
offlce at No. 412 Bank of Commerce
building, adds cheerful testimony as
to his experience with the use of the
Kola Nervine Tablets:
"For a. long time," said he, "prior to
my taking the Kola Nervine Tablets 1
was troubled with sleeplessness. I was
in the habit of waking up about 3
o'clock in the morning and could not
rest any more. Naturally of a nervous
temperament, this aggravated my
troubles and I sought relief by taking
Kola Nervine Tablets which has prov
en a decided benefit. I have only taken
one-half box and now I cannot get
hours enough In which to sleep and
feel better in every way, to say noth.ng

Lieut. Louis De Lestry is Division In-
spector Sons of Veterans and editor of
"The Sentry," the official paper of the
allied orders of Minnesota, published in
St. Paul. He writes as follows under
date of Nov. 14th, 1895:
"Yes, I have been using Dr. Charcot's
Kola Nervine Tablets for some time.
A few Tablets- had been given me by a
friend to overcome the effects of over-
smoking. Having been an Inveterate
tobacco user for years I had become
most annoylngly nervous. The trial
dose was marvelously effective. A few
tablets secured a splendid night's rest
—something that I had not enjoyed for
■several years. Then I bought a few
boxes, using them regularly. As a re
sult I have smoked but one-quarter as
much as before and feel 100 per cent im-
proved. I can recommend Kola Ner
vine Tablets to all heavy tobacco users
as a most soothing and effective agent
for allaying nervous troubles.
