carefully deijineato tbem forma peculiar
to the bst specimens of tbe breed. When
tbe subject i n nimal whose meat is
the food prodolr, or whose strength or
endurance are rnsriltB desired, there may
be no serious objection to the padding

the dairy breeds. Tbe form whicn gives
the I greatest degree of activity to the
dairy functions is decidedly angular, and
in to much as it deviate from this form
it fleviates from the highest type.
It is fair to bwame that onr most suc

and by studying t heir form we find there
are certain featon common to them

T. L. Haeker, authority for the fore
going, says in Breeders' Gazette: "My
observation leads me to believe that a
Jeep body is not essential to a good

J who claimed that the comparatively
smalj barreled cows are the ones that
more readily respond to high feeding.

"In the experiments of Sir John B.
Lawes, which have been conducted on

years, potash seems to have had no effect

Keeping Piga la Wlater.
Tbo aim of a farmer should be to keep
no more swine tnrougn the winter than
are necessary for breeding purposes. It
is better to market or kill tdl that are at
all large enough for the purpose than to
keep them for what they can be made to
gain in cold weather. Where there ia a
litter or two of pigs too small to be
killed they should have very comfort
able pens and bedding, otherwise they
will gain but little, I believe fully one-

A , GOOD WORD FOR THE CROW.
Be Is a VlsrVty Cute Bird, ul It Isn't
Saw tw Veal Hlsa. '
Farmer Lucius S. Clark, of North AMng
ton township, is a great Mend of crows.
He declares that the noisy, big birds do a
great deal more good than harm on his
place, and he never allows bis sons to rob
their nests, or to shoot or trap them. Con
sequently aJ 1 the crows that neat in Farmer
Clark's woods every summer, and sail over
his broad acres at all seasons of tbe year,
are much tamer than those that flock on
the farms of some of his neighbors. Even
though he ia kind to .his big family of
crows. Farmer Clark says that the black
rascals have until this season been in the
habit of scratching up lots of his corn as
soon as it was planted, and of pulling op
lots more shortly after it bad become nicely
sprouted. But the cutworms and other
crawling things that tbe crows devoured
more than paid for the damage they did to
the corn, and that was why be cherished
the glossy birds, he said. .
Whea corn planting time came Farmer
Clark thought be would see if he couldn't
make the crows Let the corn alone after it
bad been planted. . He boiled a lot of tar
in a large kettle, dumped bis seed corn
into Hand kept stirring the mass until
each kernel was completely covered with a
coaxing of tar. and after that he railed the
corn in pulverized lima till it was white.
He planted it the Same day, and the crows
clawed a few hills "of it np and were In a
peck of trouble for several hours. - The
sunning fellows evidently couldn't make
)ut what the confounded stuff was, for
LOiay - dropped the kernels as though they
tot biu meua tnenBflew
snother part of tbe field and tried other
The corn didn't taste right to any of the
srows, and after they had sampled -hills
here and there the whole flock met at a
back corner of the lot and had a noisy dis
cussion over the mystery. Ia the course
of halt an hour one of the crows sailed
away, alighted on a hill, scratched into it
and suddenly started back, to where its
companions were sitting silently on the
fence, veiling out the information on the
way that icwaa the same nasty stuff as the
rest. Thea the whole flock Jawed as tight
as they could for a minute or so, when
another crow sailed forth to a different sec
tion of the Held, tackled a hill, took a ker
nel in Its biU,jocted it mighty quick and
flew over to the fence with the same dis
gusting report. For two hours the crows
took turns at investigating, finally came
to tbe conclusion that they had been un
morcifullyfooled and went cawing away
to tbe woods on the hillsides Farmer
Clark had watched them all the time, and
he declared that the crows let that field en
tirely aloae from then on. - ' -
Iu another patch the men ' planted two
rows with corn that had not been coated
with tar and lime. The rows were ten
rods apart, and tbe cunning crows un
earthed every hill in each row and gobbled
np every kernel 'of corn, but they didn't
touch a single hill of the intervening rows,
where the tarred corn was. Farmer Clark
said that their eye teeth had been cut in
the former field, and that the birds were
too sharp to be led into the same painful
experience again. Plain corn was planted
in tbe two rows the second time, and the
crows scratched it all np the next day.
Then the men put beans in the corn hills
and tbe beans were not disturbed by the
Another strange thing abont the be
havior of Farmer Clark's flock of crows
was noticed by tbe watchful farmer when
the cultivator was run between the rows
of corn for the first time. In the latter
field dozens of crows followed the cultiva
tor and picked up hundreds of cutworms.
When the farm hand turned his home
about the flock rose np and flew to the
fence, but as soon as he got well started on
his way to the other end of the lot they
settled down a few rods behind him and
resumed their work. Scranton (Pa.) Cor.

Water for Dyspeptics.
Some dyspeptics are very thirsty a little
while after eating heartily. Hot water is
the best drink for them, and it should be
aippeo. i nis is aiso a remedy lor "sour
stomach and many - other symptoms
which come under the head of "distress
after eating." When one is very tired
mentally or physically the digestive or
gans share in the fatigue, and they ought
to have a short rest before being put to
work. If a feeling of f aintness or "eone-
ii ess" exists and urges one to eat at once
while tired and worried he should slowlv

In that way he can comfortably put np

obstructs digestion, and the table should

It is a Mistake
To try to cure catarrh by using local ap
plication. Catarrh is not a locsl but a
constitutional disease. It is not a dis
ease of the man's noee, but of tbe man.
therefore, to effect a cure, requires a
constitutional remedy like Hood's Saras

reaches every part of the system, expeK
ing the taint which causes the disesse
