Interested in mutters properly bolouirlnK to this de
partment. Fastenings for Cattle In the Stable.
A subscriber asks for a convenient
and economical device for confining
cattle in the stable without the use of
stanchions. Our plan is to set two
standards for each animal two and one
half feet apart, between whjch the
animal Is fastened with a chain around
the neck, a branch of the chain running
to each standard, terminating In a ring
sliding up and down upon the standard ;
these two branches of the chain running
from each standard to the centre, con
nected by a ring with two other branches
from this ring going around the animal's
neck, fastening with a long T through
a ring. A little examination of this
plan will show that the animals will be
held in the centre between the standards,
bo as not to be able to move sideways, or
to annoy its neighbor, but can move a
little forward or backward, turn its head
round, or lick its shoulders and enjoy
much more liberty than In stanchions.
The whole arrangement Is also very
cheap the chains not costing more than
fifty cents each ; and there 1b really only
one drawback to it, the chain will not go
round the neck and fasten itself without
help. The self-suHtulning stanchion is
ahead in that respect. 15ut shall we
neglect the comfort of our animals to
save so paltry a service ? To decrease
this labor of fastening the chain around
the neck, lmng a small cord on one Bide,
reaching down to within six inches of
the top of the neck of the nuimul, with
a hook of bent wire in tho lowest end.
"When the chain is taken nil" the neck,
hang one end on this hook, and it will
be held up ready to bo placed around
the neck when the animal conies in
again, and also, stretching across from
one standard to the other, prevent the
animal from going through before it is
fastened. There is no patent on this.
A New Use for Onions.
A Xew Hampshire paper states that
the speediest way to cure the epizootic
and make a lior-e thoroughly happy i.s
to give him onions. In proof whereof
the case of a Portsmouth horse is cited,
which hud a severe attack of the disease,
and his owner placed half a dozen
onions in v ich his regular feed. The
horse ate three of the onions immedia
tely, and by the lime he had swallowed
them, began to cough and sneeze and
prance about, appearing quite indignant,
and refusing to touch the remaining
onions. For full live minutes he wept
at the nose, and then he was u cured
horse. He has not a cough, a sneeze,
nor any symptoms of thecpi.notlc since,
but he had the courage to eat the onions
remaining in the crib the next day after
( A Seasonable Remedy.
'. Now that the chilly night air and raw
atmosphere prevail to a considerable
extent, rendering little folks liable to
tako severe colds, and frequently to
sudden attacks of the much dreaded
croup, the following remedy, published
in an exchange may be of service :
" Croup can bo cured in one minute;
and the remedy is simply alum and
sugar. The way to accomplish the detd
is to take a knife or grater and shave off
in small particles about a teaspoonful of
alum ; then mix it with twice Its quan
tity of sugar, to make it palatable, and
administer it us quickly as possible.
Almost instantaneous relief will follow."
Wood far Winter.
When we see a pile of green wood at
a farmer's door for his w inter's fuel, we
need no further evidence of his thrift
lessness in the general management of
his farm. Such a man is sure to be
poor during life, if he has to earn a
Jiving. The pile of green wood for Im
mediate use tells his whole history thus :
He Is indolent in his management ;
lives from hand to mouth ; is always in
debt ; seems to have no idea how to
push things ; and Is always behind time
with his work. Farmers should have
large wood-houses, with a year's dry
wood ahead constantly.
How to Get Rid of Chicken-Lice.
A poultry house may be cleared of
lice, when badly infested, by thoroughly
cleaning it, scalding the floor, if of
boards, and washing it with soft soap
and boiling water. Wash the rest of
the house with hot lime-wash, und rub
the roosts thoroughly with lard and
kerosene oil in equal parts. A small
quantity of the grease should also be
rubbed under the wings of tho fowls,
and upon their heads. This plan may
need repeating once, before the vermin
are cleaned out entirely. A plenty of
dry earth or coal ashes should be scat
tered in the house.
