How to Build ltrlek Chimney.
In reply to the query. "How ought a
hnck chimney, thirty feet high, to be
built to have the best iKssible draught'
Rural New Yorker gives the following
information, w Inch w ill be of service to
If this refers to the chimney of a dwell
ing house it may
be replied simply
t hat it should
have a flue not
smaller than 8
inches square for
fire: the flues
should be straight
or, if necessary
to pass out of a
course, the devi
ation should bo
as small as pos
sible. The flues CHIMNEY WITH OOOD
should be made
of the best bard brick; no soft brick
should be used and the flue should be
olastered siuo-thlv all over Ilia
as it is carried up so as to leave an even
suriace without roughness or projections
SO impede the draught, cause irregular
currents of air or gather soot.
If the chimnev has fireDlacos connect
ed with it. these should have a contracted
throat made in the form shown in the
cut. There will be 110 downward cur.
rents caused by reflux of air in a chim
ney built in this way. If it refers to a
single chimnev. as for a furnace or n
boiler, the chimney should taper outside
gradually to the top: but the flue should
widen a little as it goes up. not more
than three inches, however, in thirty
feet. This enables the cold air which
rushes in above the fire to expand as i
gets Heated and makes a stronger draugh
below, which, of course, in all chimnev
is a great advantage. The plastering ol
the flue iu everv chimnev is indisnensn
ble. and. to urevent the nlnstor fmm
cracKing with me heat, cow dung is usu
ally mixed with it, and it is well tern
pered before it is used.
Points In Clmrning.
The chief obstacle in butter coming is
frequently caused oy allowing the cream
to remain in a room of changing temper
ature, ranging from freezing up to blood
heat, as is sometimes the case while it ia
awaiting the churning. The cream
should be kept at a cool and uniform but
not freezing temperature, and should not
be kept long enough to become bitter.
When ready to churn warm it up to a
temperature of about 60 degs. until it
becomes pleasantly acid. Churn at a
temperature of about 60 degs., and don't
add fresh cream to ihat which is slight
ly acid just as you begin to churn. In
that case the acid of the old cream will
not affect the new ouicklv enough for
each to churn in the same time, conse
quently a good deal of butter will be lost
in the buttermilk.
Milk and cream very easilv contract
unpleasant odors which will affect their
flavor, and for this reason the greatest
care should be observed to keep the milk
room clean and sweet, and use it only
for dairy purposes. Stop churning as
soon as the butter is released and appears
like grainsor wheat. To continue longer
is to injure the texture of the grains and
give tho butter a soft and greasy appear
A Sheep' Motaacn.
-V writer in Farmer's Review savs that
"a sheep's stomach is not an economical
place to melt atiow" a truism that is
well worthy of consideration. Sheep do
ot, as a rule, require much drinkiug
water when they are well supplied with
roots, but unless these are to be had the
sheep should have access to fresh water
or they will eat scow. If they do so a
great deal of extra food will be neccssarv
to keep up sufficient combustion to melt
the enow and maintain healthy circula
tion. Arguing in the same way, it is ap
parent that ice cold water would have
the same effect as snow in the sheep's
A Good Appetite
is essential to good health : but at this
season it is often lost, owing to the pov -crty
or impurity of the blood, derange
ment of the digestive organs, and the
weakening effects of the changing sea
son . Hood's Saraaparilla is a wonderful
medicine for creating an appetite, toning
the digestion, and giving strength to the
whole systerr . Now is the time to take
it. Be rare to get Hood's BaraapariHa.

A Woman's Discovery.
"Another wonderful discovery has

clutches upon her and for seven years she
withstood its severests tests, but her vital
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months she
coughed incessantly and could not sleep
She bought of us a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery for consumption and was
so much relieved on taking the fltst dose
that she slept all night, and with one
bottle has been miraculously cured. Her
name is Mrs. Luther Lutz." Thus write
