Turn to another date, four years

nation has p:issod the eriais of Arnold's
treachery: Comwutlls baa snrrondorod;
but it is yet war time, and British
troops still occupy the city of New
York. It is noon. Tho sentinel on the
parapet of Fort Putnam pauses on his
Iteat to look down on what was Fort
Arnold, but. Kliico the treachery of the
man for whom it was named, called
Fort Clinton. There are signs of some

While from the known coneensus of

their lu-tion was not sui'iirisiug, it was
still thought th it tile presence nf Miss

election and the additional fact that no
protest against their being seated was
lodged within the year succe d.n.; their
election, would exercise greater inliiiciicc
over tne obdurate penr-i.
There is now a resolution la-fore the

the exclusion of women from tie- parlia

In the cut is shown a lnovalde xiultry
house suggested by Stoddard in his man

may be used tuadvautiigoiii iiiiiny cases.
Uy frequently shifting it dining the
warm season to a new place the birds
can always bo supplied with fresh grass
and nntaiiitcd soil, tho l'st preventives

Indicated by tho dotted lines In th'icut,
through strong wrought iron staples
bolted to the corners of the building four
adults cull move it with ease u few feet
every fuw days.
It may bo placed on a sled and drawn
by a team uny distance, and, by the use
of movable fences, 1111 entirely new site
may be occupied by tho poultry yard at
will. The dimensions of the house illus
trated are: Six feet from tho ground to
the eaves, nnd I) feet to tho peak; width
upon tho ground, fl feet; length, 8 feet.
A small .lisir 11 Inches high, within the
larger, serves as un exit for the fowls.

Artltlrlul rVrtllUer on Wheat and Corn.
From a bulletin Issued from the Ohio
experiment station it is learned that l lliio
farmers do not gent-rally cultivate wheat
continuously on Ihe same soil, bnt niter
liatowheat witliothercrops. Those who
use commercial fertilUers on wheat be
lieve them of s;n eial service to the grass

"grass" in l'.:rm practice, t In the station
grounds, hu.veur. upon small pints,
cultivated iu wheat fur six years, tile re
sult has been that, as a rule, no more
wheat has Ins u harvested from Hie pints
treated with coiiiuic rcinl fertilizers than
from those receiving none, whereas the
manures of the Ian 11 have produced a
marked increase of crop when judiejuiisly
nsisl. So far ns can be I. .11 11. d from
these exs-riinents, the conclusion is that
iu the majority nf cases neither wheat

of crop to cover Ihe cost of any artificial
