UNLIKE TEA & COFFEE-GOOD FOR THE NERVES, i
The claims of cocoa as a useful article of diet are steadily
winning recognition. Unlike tea and coffee, it is not only a
stimulant but a nourisher; and it has. the great advantage of
leaving no narcotic effects. Hence it is adapted to general
use. The strong may take it with pleasure, and the weak

Single and Doable Poultry IIoum- That
Are Ho til Good ami Cheap.
It is not possible to present a design
that will te acceptable to all. but hi re
are two plana for poultry hoases, each of
a cheap rorLTnv norsE.
which has several recottunen lations.
The design! were ppetuAlly dra.vn for

and sides are combined. It may lie 10
feet wjiiare. 9 fct at the tKik, with a
board at the bottom 1 fo-it high, or it
may be of any tlzp ls;rd. The cost
for m-iterul is about 1. the fl .r Ining
of earth. It is not so convenient tot
one entering 'it iis is tho house shown at
Fig. 2. but this liou'w gives m re room
on the ground, at less co-t. Windows
should be at Ihith ends, and the roo.-ts
may lie short, to as not to interfere with
ingress and egress tf the attendant.
Fig. 1 shows P. double house. This
house is io by 16 feet, divided iato two
apartments, each S by 10 f .'et, and will
cost aliout 15. E:u-h apartm-nt will
accommixlate about ten or twe!ve fowls,
and one vrntil.tor (A) will a;:sT, r for
both. There are two entrances to and
from the interior, one at each end (13.
and a wire or lath partition, with a door

in the partition, separates the two flocks.
This house, like the other, gives plenty
of rooai on the ground, and is more con
venient in some respects, but both are
good and cheap.

A trial was made of spreading nan ore
upon the ground late in the fall, also of
leaving it in small heaps on the land in
the fall and spreading it early in the
spring. A third trial was made of haul
ing the manure and spreading the last
of April just before the grass started.
The manure was spread as evenly as
possible and bush harrowed. The best
result was from the land on which the
manure was spread the last of April.
The purest result was from the manure
left in heaps over winter and spread in
Not realizing satisfactory returns from
either of th-se experiments, a portion of
my land was planted two years to fodder
corn. The spring following the same
qnantity of manure .-43 nsed in top dress
ing was spread and plowed under and
the land laid down to grass. With the
grass seed was sowa a sufficient quantity
of oats to smother the weeds the first
season. The resul.- was that the crop of
oats and grtss the irst year was of more
value than the Wst crop of grass realized
from top dressing. It c-or.tinned to lie of
much lK-ttt-r quality and ijuanlity in the
four succeeding years.
Another experiment for producing
grass was m.'ide uio;i land broken up in
Angust. The manure was spread ujKn
the sod. thoroughly harrowed under and
the land laid down to grass. T iie result
of this experiment was fully :is satisfac
tory in qnantity and quality of grass as
from the land planted 1 wo years to fod
der corn a:id then laid d wn to grass.
These exp-rimenUs, which Live ln-eu con
ducted through a series of ten years,
lead to the conclusion that there ismnch
loss in the fertilizing proj-rties of ma
nure applied 1o the surf ace of the earth.

The new carnation. Paul IIh-cIVimt
is without quest ion the best bnnler cxir
natiou of the clove section yet intro

old crimson clove, but the flowers are al
most twice the size. and. if possible,
more fragrant than those of that good
old irarden ulant. The civ.at ailranlum.

the large flowers, and this is so even

- Bees do not make honey, but gather it
from the flowers.
The better way to start in the bee busi
