FARMING IN IIOLLAND,-Iln the north
of Holland the farms are not over a
foot above the level of the sea, and some
are lower. The land is loose, spongy
muck, and is very rich. It is sub-di
vided into small parcels ty canals,
There are thousands of windmills whieh
are used to pump water all the time.
The dwellings are as neat as they possi
bly can be. They are built In small
villages, clustered closely together.
The roads are all paved and not a parti
cle of dust is ever seen. They measure
distances by the hour, saying that from
place to place it Is ten hours' walk,
four 'hours by boat, or two hours by
rail. The houses are built as nicely as
any 'n our cities, about fifty feet square
with about eight feet between jgists
upon the first floor: all above is used
for storing hay. On the side are tlMe
stables for the cattle, and they are mod
els of neatness. The floors are all pay..
ed with stone or brick. in these stables
where the cattle are they make butter,
cheese, do the washing, ironing aid
baking and the general household
-work. It is not an uncommon thing to
see hundreds of 'cheeses there; they
weigh about four pounds each. The
bedding is always clean and lasts a good
while. When the cattle are put lnto
the stable they are put there for the
season, and tied with a rope to the cor
ner of the stall. The air there is always
chilly, and the cows are blanketed in
summer, and of course are warm in
their stalls in winter, for fires are quite
generally kept burning in two stoves
through the coldest of the season. The
calves do not need to be covered in
summer, because nature has provided
a very thick coating of hair for them,
and In winter thev are sheared.
HoW TO MANAUt A IOUNO BULL.
To make a first-31ass animal,' he should
run wcith the cow till he is six moaths
old, at least; if' weaned earlier, feed on
new milk just from the cow three time s
a day till be is six months old, then
twice a day till eight months then onuee
a day for a month or so longer. At an
early day, say a month old, give him a
little fine hay to pl at, at.d later let
him have some oat meal. a little oil
cake, vegetables, etc., iucteasing the
rations gradaally as he grows older.
Weaning from utilk should be gradual
and in pasture time, Ring his nose at
eight mouths, and handle him from that
time on dvlly. After he is weaned,
feed as you would other cattle to keep
them in the best condition. Do not
handle the ring after-it is put in until
the wound Is entirely healed, and rub

DAIRY SCHOOL IN RUssIA.---There Is
a dairy school established in Russia at
an annual cost of $10,000, where every
thing is tatught relating to the manu
facture of butter and chee:e, embracing
the different systems there known. The
attendance embraces about sixty young'
men and women who are taught to milk,
feed cows and aw wne,and in tie evenin ps
are taught reading, writing, etc, '1'Tte
ttition and instruction is Iree, and each
student is allowed about $60 yearly for
clothes and traveling expenses. The
instruction lasts two years, and at the
end of that time the students receive
salarieM at from $200 to $300 a year in
the mnanageiment of dairies of from 100
to 200 cows. Before the establishment
of this school cheese was worth from
25 to 50 centA per pound. and milk only
4 cents per gallon. Now eheese Ia sold
at from 12 to 25 cents per pound, and
milk is worth 8 e.its per gallon. For
merly nasty butter was sold at six cents
a pound, but now first-class butter is

What a Spider Eats.
Imn order to tet, whamt a spider can do
It inlthe wvay of eating, says a writer on
spiders, we arose about day break In the
inornimng to supply his flne web wIth a
fly. At first, however, the spider had
not comec fromn his retreat, so wve peep
ed among the leaves, amid there discov
ered that an earwig had been caught,
and was unow being feastedl on. The
spider left the earwig, rolled up the fly
amid at once returned to his l1ast course.
- Thiswas at hafpast fly'e, one morning
had beii demolished, and the spider
havIng rested awhile and probably en
joyed a nap, which lie had fintirhed at
*1 9 A. M. A little after that we supplied
* him with a daddy long-legs, which he
ate by noon. At one o'caock a blow
I' fy was greedily seized, and then izm
mediately with an ap)petlte apparently
no worse for lia previous indulgence,
he commenmced on the blow-fly. During
the day anid towards tIhe evening a
great mnany greenfi,es, or what are com
mnonly termed midges, had been caught
In his web; of these we counted 120, all
dead and fast prisoners In the spider's
nest. Soon af ter dark, provided with
a lantern, we went to examnine whether
time spider was sufferIng from indiges
tion, or in any other way, from hIs
previous meajs. Instead, however, of
being thus affected, lie was employeu
in rolling up togethier the various little
green midges, which he took to his re
treat and ate. TIhis process lie repeated
carrying up the lots in little detach
ments, until the web wa6 eaten; for the
web and its contents were bundled up
togetner. A slight rest of about an
hour wvas followed by the most Indus
trious web makig process, and befor e
dybreak another web *as ready to be
1'used in the same way. Taking the rel
ative size of the spider and of the crea
tures it ate, anid applying this to man,
it would be somewhat as follows: At
day break a't-mall alligator was eaten;
at?7 A. M. a lanib; at8 A. Mt. a young
cameleopard ; at 10 o'clock a sheep; and
during the nlight one hundred and
tWenty larks. 'This, we believe would
be a very fair allowance for a man
during twenty-four hours, and could
we find oune gilted with such an appe
tite and digestion, we readily compre

To FR BEr's LivEn.-Cut the liver
in slices about two-thirds of an Inch
thick; soak in cold water about a quar
ter of an hour; have ready some butter
In the spider; when hot pour in the
liver; season with salt, pepper, and an
onion chopped flue; dust a little flour
over the top; cover tight to keep steam
in as muen as possible; add a little
water while cooking, to keep from get
ting dry (do not let it burn); when
brown turn on the other side; put on a
little more salt, pepperand flour; when
done take the liver out on a platter, put
in about a teacup of sweet milk; if not
thick enough, add a little more flour,
wet with milk, until you get It about
tihe thickness of beef gravy; pour over
the liver and serve. This Is the Swed
ash way of cooking It.
TARTAR SAuca.-Put the yolk of a
raw egg into a bowl, with one level
te4spoonful of dry mustard; one level
tunepoonful of salt, and as much cay
enne pepper as can be taken up on the
point vi a small pen-knife blade; stir
toese ingredients with a wooden salad
spuon or spatula until they are smooth;
ttten add, a few drope at a time, one
gill of salad-oil and three teaspoonfuls
of lemon Juice, stirring quickly all the
time. W ien the sauce Is thick and
smooth add the following Ingredients
to it, and keep It cool until wanted for
use: one tabiespoon each of chopped
parsley, capers and gherkins, and one
teaspountul of chopped onions.
SousE CHiEEsE.-Lay the meat in co'd
water as cut frem the hog. Let it
stand tihree or four days, shifting the
water each day. Scrape it and let it
stand a dlay or two longer, changing
the water often, and if It should turn
warm, pour a little salt In the water.
The oftener It is scraped the whiter
will be the souse. Bull in plenty of
water to cover it, replenishing when
needed. When tender enough, put in
milk-warm water, and when cold in
salt water. Boil the head until the
bones will almost fall out. Clean one
dozen or more ears and boil also; while
hot, chop very fine, and season with
pepper and salt. Put in a mold or
bowl with a weight on top. The feet
mity be soused whole, or cut up with
the head and ears; but it is not so nice.
Clean them by dipping in boiling
water and scraping.
How To Kxar MoTus AAvAY.-Folk
up your things, sprinkling a little dry
camphor in between. Then sew them
up in bags, made of some strong ma
terial, containing no wool whatever;
linen, of course, is excellent, but com
mon bed-ticking answers very well.
The bags should be stitched very
closely, best by machine, and leaving
not the smallest opening anywhere.
This keeps the goods perfectly safe.
You need never use any other precau
tion, even for furs, but you must, of
course, make sure that the moths have
had no chance to lay their eggs in the
things before taey are packed.
Guno.-One large fowl, one peck of
bn. t >es, sassafras leaves, pepper and
tterbs, two onions. Cut the fowls in
pieces and fry brown, and make with it
a highly seasoned gravy, cut it into the
tomatoes, and pour on three plits of
boiling water, c,ook till chicken is in
rags, stir in a heaping tablespoonful of
sassafras leaves dried and reduced to
powder, strain into your dish hot.
When well made this will almost rope
like candy; pepper, onions and sweet
unions and sweet herbs are used pro
fusely in this soup, also plenty of salt.
A Goose Ehaae.
One day last w,lnter, when the Mis
sissippi River in front of Davenport
was frozen over, there was a piece of
s pen water in the swift current, above
the greaz bridge. At sight of this, a
liock of tame fleese took It Into their
heads to have a swim. So after talking
together, goose-fashIlon, the boldest
with a screech led the way, and the
whole flock plunged into the river.
It was fine fuan. But, when they
tried to get back to the land, they found
that they had made a great niitake ; for
the strong eurrent would not let them
go. It held them fast, and was .draw..
ing them rapidly down towards the
bridge, where the water whirling and
edd.ying between the stone piers, would
be sure to drag them uinder the ice.
Some boys on shore, seeing the pilght
of the poor geese, humanely rushed
to their rescue. So getting into a boat,
and pulling lustily, they soon drew
near the geese, when, on looking round
they saw a big floe of ice coming right
down toward their boat.
They saw their danger at once, aed
tried with all their strength to pull
back to the shore. But the ice gained
upon them in spite of all they could do.
They looked to the shoret but there
was no help there. Nobody could
reach them. They looked up the river
and there was. the Ice threatening to
overwhelm them. There seemed to be
no hope. Down, down, they went,
nearer and nearer to the bridIge.
Then, all of a sudden, two ropes,
thrown from the top of tile bridge,
came tumbling across the boat. "Make
fast to each end of the boat? Lively
now I" said a hoarse voice on the
Quick as thought the boys obeyed the
order. They were just in tline, for the
next moment they were under the
bridge. "Now then, pull all together l''
said the same cheery voice. Six stout
bridge men had bold of the ropes. Up
went the boat, rIght out of the water,
-up, up, up.
Do,wn camne the ice, crashing and
spliniterlng against tile piers. But no
matter; the boys wvere safe. The ice
was clear againl.-T~hen the men lower
ed the boa t anto the river, ancd the boys
pulled for the shore.
.But what became of the poor'geese?
Alas?i they -hadl been forgotten. They
wore no longer to be seen; for they had
all been drawn under tile ice and

Carbon and the Ile'tric Light.-M. Alf.
Siaudet expresses a very decided con
tetlon that carbon, and not platinum
i any other metal, is the best material
or the production of.the electric light
y means of incandescence. In sup
ort of this position, M. Niaudet adl
luces the following arguments: (1) At
qual teinperattuies carbon possesses
power of iadiation in excess of that
f platinutm. (2) The heat capacity of
latinum is far greater than that of
arbon, and the former, conseqtently,
equires a far greater amount of heat
han the latter to bring it to a given
etperature. (3) Carbon is a worse
onluctor of electricity than platinumu,
mitt, consequently, may be of greater
lianeter without the temperature
eing rediuced. (4) Carbon is absolute
y infusible, and anay be brought to a
vhite heat without the circuit being
nterrupted owing to fusion. In the
3nwyer-Man electric light, in which
icandescent carbon is used, the peu
