A CATTLE BARN.
4 Plan Which Is Reeommonded for Its
Convenleni-e auld I la Cheapness.
The barn here illustrated was origi
nally described in Country Gentleman by
a Pennsylvania farmer as follows:
FIO. 1 THE BARN COMPLETE.
I built a barn 30x60 for horses and
cattle and have since extended it fifty
fi-et for sheep. By building narrow the
frame can be light. There is an alley in
front of horses and cittle for feeding. A
lube, A, runs from that alley to top of hay
mow. It gives a good wide alley at the
the rear of cattle. The barn can at any
time be extended to any length, and still
FIO. 2 IXSIDR ARRANGEMENT.
For convenience, cheapness, ventila
tion, light, etc., I would not change this
for any cheap barn that 1 have ever seen.
Artificial Heat In tlio ro ill try Hnusn.
We glean the following from Poultry
Yard: Artilioial heat within the poultry
house is of no account, ordinarily. The
fuel consumed in a store, for instance
(a plan that is occasionally tried in the
fowl house) costs more than all that can
le gained by such an attempt to make
your fowls comfortable. And, as a rule,
if it be followed up day and night for
any length of time, more lice will be
brol upon the premises than you can
well take care of. It is necessary, only,
that your fowl house be tight in the roof
and walls, and fliat the birds be kept out
of the reach of rough winds and exces
sive frosts. They will bear a great deal
of dry cold weather, but should be so
sheltered that snow, sleet aid rain shall
not trouble them. Uive them fresh air
daily. Close up the building at night
carefully. Allow them a range outside,
when the weather will permit, and feed
them more generously during the chilly
season than you need to do in summer
time, and they will get through the
winter comfortably and remain in good
Poultry Yard Notes.
The hen house, more especially where
wooden floors are in use, is not gener
ally appreciated. Any kind of clean
loam or clay soil will answer. Occa
sionally a portion of this fresh earth
may lie thrown around the floors or
scattered under the roosts. A compost
heap may shortly be begun. Mix the
droppings from the roosts where the
fouls pass the night with some of this.
Rake it away one or twice in a fortnight,
and next spring you will have a rich
mass of manure for your vegetable gar
den, or top dressing for the grass or
lawn around the house that cannot be
excelled for its quality. It will cost you
nothing but a little easy labor once a
week. The earth will help to keep your
house atmosphere pure, says Poultry
Yard, from which the foregoing is taken.
A Good Wh Itewash.
Take half a bushel of best unslacked
lime, slack it in boiling water, and coveir,
it during the process to keep in the
steam. Strain the liauid through a fine
sieve or strainer and add to it a peck of
salt previously dissolved in warm water,
three pounds of ground rice boiled to a
thiu paste, one-half iiound of oowdered
Spanish whiting and one pound of clear
glue dissolved in warm water. Add hot
water to the mixture to reduce it to the
proper con. istency and let it stand cov
ered up; when used apply as hot as pos
sible with a paint or whitewash brush.
A cheaper wash for outside work may
be made by slacking half a bushel of
lime in a barrel; add a pound of salt,
half a pound of sulphate of zinc and a
gallon of sweet milk.
Cause of Rust In Grain.
After a thorough investigation as to
the cause of rust in wheat and other
grains, the Uuelph (Ont.) Agricultural
college has arrived at the following con
clusions: I. Seasons are the chief cause of rust;
sudden changes of temperature and rain,
accompanied by close, still weather, are
favorable to its increase. 2. Low lying,
rich soils are most subject to attack. 8.
An excessive use of manures rich in ni
trogen encourages the disease. 4. Late
sown grain is most subject to attack. 5.
Thinly sown crops seem most liable to in
jury. 0. Red wheals are less affected
than white varieties. 7. Rust is more
common in the vicinity of barlierry
hedges than it is at a greater distance.
As no two animals are alike, it is wise
to contiult their special appetites and de
sires when feeding them.
Hay for horses ought to be of the best
