Importance of Pare Water for Country
and Suburban Home The Late George
Geddes' Tlan for Filtering Kaln Water
Illustrated and Described.
At this season of the year much im
pure water is used, causing a great deal
of the sickness which prevails in sum
mer. Boilinar the water before usin or it
modifies the danger. If used for tea or
coffee the process is quite simple. If for
a linking water it may be boiled and kept
till wanted in a cold apartment or ice
house in corked bottles or jugs. When
there are mineral impurities that cannot
be removed by boiling the water it is
safest to use filtered rain water.
The late George Geddes for more than
a quarter of a century used filtered rain
water for all domestic purposes in his
tamiiy, and during that time there had
r"f 1 ' l jjk?SsS. ' k k J jj
CISTERN WITH A BRICK FILTER.
been no disease of a character resulting
from the use of bad water. For several
years he had used a brick filter, a sec
tion of which is represented in the ac
companying cut. it was twelve feet
long, and for convenience in coverii
only six feet wide. It would hold 4,000
gallons. The lower course of the ce
mented stone walls projected four inches
into tho cistern to prevent any crack.
The covering with six inch flag stones.
fitted to the walls with cement, left no
entrance except through the man hole b
and the leader from the roof. A foot of
eartn rest ea on tne cover, ana tne man
hole flags included an air space shutting
out frost. The roof should be kept clean,
and the first water after a long drouth
excluded. The filter was a hollow brick
cylinder, c c, with an inch air hole, and
containing the pump. The water soak'
ing through the four inches of brick be
came perfectly filtered, and was as pleas
ant to drink as any we ever tasted. The
overflow, d d, carries off all sediment
A 6eit acting valve, closed when no
water is escaping, prevented the en
trance of mice. Thanks are due to
Country Gentleman for the foregoing
cut and its description.
Three Classes of Fowls.
For a long time poultrymen expected
to combine in one fowl all the excellen
cies to bo found in the various breeds.
The abundance and quality of the flesh
which characterizes the table fowl was
to be united to the wonderful prolificacy
which marks the great layers. The ex
pectation has not been realized; it never
will be. Antagonistic qualities can be
combined only by robbing them of their
antagonism. The great laver and the
great table fowl are differently constitu
ted, with different dispositions, and con
vert their food into different products.
It is probable that general purpose fowls
may bo improved, that the nicest balance
between their qualities has not been
found, but the ideal general purpose
fowl will never exist outside the imag
ination of its admirers.
There is need of all three classes of
fowls. The man who raises poultry for
market requires the table fowl; the one
who produces eggs for general consump
tion needs the great layer, and hundreds
and thousands of families which keep
fowls to produce eggs and poultry de
mand the general purpose fowl. The
general purpose is unquestionably the
most popular fowl in the country, but
the other two classes are steadily grow
ing in favor, and as the number of those
who make a business of keeping fowls
increases the popularity of these classes
will increase. H. S. Babcock in Stock
The subsoil plow follows the common
plow and merely stirs and opens the sub
soil without turning a furrow. The next
round of the common plow covers the
subsoiled furrow. Its benefit will de
pend wholly on the character of the soil
Soils containing vegetable matter that
has not been drawn upon by the roots of
plants owing to the former shallow cul
tivation will be improved by subsoiling
or deeper plowing. On undrained, wet
lands subsoiling would do more harm
than good. Its good effect consists
deepening the soil and bringing more of
it under the influence of cultivation. It
would not dispense with manure; on the
contrary, as the feeding area of the
plants is increased more manure would
be required unless the surface soil is rich.
in which case subsoiling would not be
necessary. Where land has been made
poor by long cultivation and carrying
awav the crops with no return of plant
food to the soil it cannot be restored to
fertility by subsoiling or deep plowing,
Manure must be applied along with rest
and a judicious rotation of crops.
Electricity Applied to the Hairy.
A foreign exchange calls attention to
an interesting application of electricity
to the dairy interest that has been made
in Italy. The Count of Assata, whose
buildings are fitted up with the electric
light, has connected his dairy plant with
an electric motor of twelve horse power.
This machine drives a Danish separator
and a Danish churn, churning being con
ducted at the rate of 120 to 160 revolu
tions per minnte.the butter being brought
in from thirty to thirty-five minutes in
fine grains, which it is now recognized
enables the maker to prduco the finest
article. ' A pump is also worked in the
wiiatit limb. .
