Tlie Story of a Homemade Harrow aa
Told by a Michigan Fanner For the
Benefit of The Rural New Yorker's
"Three years ago," saya the ingenious
inventor of the unpatented harrow illus
trated in the accompanying cuts, "I made
my harrow, intending it for harrowing
sorn and potatoes. On testing it I fonnd
it far excelled any spike toothed harrow
I had ever nsed for lining lumpy soil or
FIO. I. A HOMEMADE IIAItROW.
for harrowing a timothy or clover sod
I use an 4 Acme' where I wtittc deep til
lage, but for all ordinary harrowing my
Hiuut tooin has proven itself invaluable."
The bxtth bars are made of 2x2 inch
pine, riveted with a quarter inch rivet at
every tooth. The teeth are of three
eighths inch steel, alMmt six inches long.
and driven in even with the wood on a
blant of forty degrees. The harrow is
mado in two Mictions.- On top of the
tooth bars, in the contre of each section.
is a 2x4 inch pine cleat or cross bar bolt
ed to each tooth b:r near the front edge
or tooth Dar. iSear each end of the tooth
bars is a thin, hardwood cross bar
bolted to each tooth bar near the back
edge and on the under side of the tooth
bars. This arrangement of bolting the
cross bars keeps the tooth bars from
The sections are braced as shown.
Both of them are hinged together by a
bracd frame made of two 2x4 inch
Bticks. with an inch oak board bolted
across the center and extending in front
to draw the harrow by. The frame and
sections are fastened together by swivel
bolt. Handles made from smooth fence
wire for lifting the harrow in trashy
ground are also shown. The seat is from
an old McCormick mower, and is what
is called the adjustable sliding seat. By
sliding the seat to the right the driver
can laliince the harrow perfectly. The
teeth are placed seven and a half inches
apart in the tooth bar, and the bars the
same distance apart, center to center, so
that this harrow has a tooth to everyone
and a half inches, and the ends do as
gofWl work as the middle.
The materials can be bought, with the
exception of the seat, for $3 or f4. Being
nearly all made of pine it is very light,
and can he used for cross harrowing po
tatoes after they are up with only one
horse, thus avoiding stepping on half
the plants that wonld be trodden on by
two horses. In harrowing the corn it
just fits three rows, three feet nine

possible for lumps to get through it. It
can lie worked with one, two or three
horses, and on account of its slanting
teeth can w drawn anywhere, across
bridges and over grass land, without in
jury to the harrow or grass.
Summer Care of Poultry.
It ought not to be supposed that fowls
need no special care in summer, for in
this season the 'oung are subject to many
diseases which older ones are able to re
sist. Besides this, insects of all kinds
alMiuml at this time, of which the fowls
have their full share, and against such
they should have all the protection pos
sible. Cleanliness in their surroundings
is the important thing, and the best pre
ventive not only of diseases but of in
sects as well. The hen house and roost
ing places should not only be kept clean,
bnt should tie made untenantable by
fowl vermin by the use of insecticides.
Of these kerosene is one of the very best,
and from its very low price it may be
used in the most liberal manner, either
pure or as an emulsion. If used to kill
litre on fowls themselves it should be
highly diluted and applied sjiaringly,
and on little chicks not at all. By greas
ing the ohler ones a little with lard un
der the wings and on the head, and fur
nishing them with a good place where
they can wallow juid dust at will, they
will 6oon rid themselves of lice if their
runs and roosts are not infested.
ftereae In Cattle.
The decrease iu Colorado, Wyoming
and Texas commenced four years ago,
but since then has lieen great. Jxi ItjtjQ
Texas had 2,000,000 more bovine num
liers than it hits today, and Colorado,
Wyoming and New Mexico had four
years ago about 1,000,000 more than
they have now. Iu Kansas, Nebraska,
Iowa mid the northwest there has lieeu
a shrinkage of us many more. Hard
winters and low prices for lieef have
brought this about.
Oil Meal for Bwtne.
Oil meal fed liberally to hogs keeps
their bowels open and kwps them
healthy. Western Agriculturist reports
a farmer in Iowa who lost fifteen hogs by
cholera, when he got some oil meal and
fed it freely and lost no more hogs. Oil
meal is good feed for any stock, and es
pecially for hogs fed on corn until they
become feverish and constipated and an
easy prey to the cholera. Roots and a
Vs-riety of food are desirable for hogs.
