Dogs as we n ThOnA.
That the dog is a noble and saga
clous animal and capable of being edu- I
cated so as to be very usetul for some
purposes will be admitted by all per
sons. Observers generally unite in
the opinion that the dog possesses a
higher degree of intelligence than any
other animal besides man.Some Ko so Lar
as to accord him an additional sense to
those possessed by man. One may
doubt-or even repudiate half the dog I
stories iublished, and still be forced to
believe that dogs reason. No domestic
animal can be taught to perform so
many offices as the dog. None is oapa.
ble of being changed to any equal ex
tent by judicious crossing. None fur
uishes as agreeable companionship to
man. None displays as much emotion,
feeling, gratitude, and tenderness as
the dog. None occupies so prominent
a place in the literature of all modern
nations. But in spite of all these things
the dogs that are,"ordtnarily found in
the country are nuisances that should
be abated in the shortest time possible.
They interfere with the acknowledged
rights of all men to "life, liberty, and
pursuit of hapiness." They render I
night hideous by their noise. They i
obstruct travel by frightening horses,
drivers, and persons who choose or are
obliged to walk. They destroy the
happiness of children who attend
school or church. They harbor flea,
dig up flower beds, devour little birds,
frighten pets, kill sheep, worry cows,
and spread the hydrophobia. They
have no respect for life or property,
and no regard for any of the amenities
of society or any of the institutions of'
civilization . They are the Ishmaelites
of nhe Qntire brute creation whether
wild or domesticated. Much of the
comfort thiat rightly and vaturally be
longs to country life iu destroyed by
dogs, while nearly every branch of
farming is injured by them. Horses
have to be trained to go past the houses
where certain dogs are kept, in the
same inannea' they do when they are
obliged to go In the vicinity of locomo
tive or stationary steam engines. l)ogs
have destroyed the sheep industry in a
large number of countries in every
state of the union, and what is worse
they keep it deistroyed. They haive
also sadly interfered with the dairy in
terest by worrying cows, killing calves,
and frightening tenns taking tilk to
factories. In some sections they have
renderd poultry keeping unsafe and
have almost entirely exterminated
some of the most beautiful and useful
wild birds. Without birds every field,
orchard, and garden Is full of insects
injurious to vegetation. Dogs, dogs as
we find theii in most country places,
add nothing to the wealth or prosperity
or comfort of the community, but (to
much to detract from them all. 'hey
o infinitely moro damage thain wildI
beastA because their status is not clear
ly defined. A man may kill any wild
beast with impunity. In truth he is
often encouraged to take paltis to do so, i
on account of bounties offered to the I
State or county. If he kills a dog how- 1
ever,that is vastly more dangerous than
a wolf,he is liable to have lis stock kil
led or his buildings burned in conse- I
quence of his rliding tile neigh borblo ud
of a constant source of' terror. TVhe dog
question needs to be discussed by
farmers and all persons5 living in the
country. It also reqluires the attention I
of legislatures and "'all other In author
ity." D)ogs as we find them in the
country belong to a species of ever
growni vermim that shmould( be destroy-t

Thle diamonds of South Africa are

Do NOT NXOLCT YOUt WIeLLS.
Friend you have a mud hole at your
well? Go for it at once. Do not eat or
)at or sleep till it is removed. Take a
oe and dragout the mud and tiltu, and
hen fill the hole with dry soil or sand.
After doing this, shut out the pigs and
poultry from the well, and. keep them
ut. if the curb Is broken or rotted
lown, treplace with a new one. After
loing this, scrape away the grasts and
iurlae soil around the well, and re
plaee with a layer of sand and gravel.
L, from the character of the land, your
veli ever fills with water, out a ditch
ix feet deep all around it, at the dis
ance of a few yards, and have an out
et from this to take off the water. The
vater in the well will not, after this,
lee higher than the bottom of tihe ditch.
If your water Is iuddy and impure,
brow in a peck of lime to purify It. If
umalcule appear in the watar, throw
u a half gallon of salt to make them
iettle to the bottom. And it is worth
vhile to take some pains to fix up some
,onvenience at your well. A bench to
tet the bucket on while it is being filled
tud a handy and easy way to get the
wvater, and a smooth, ury path from the
ivell to the kitchen-these things will
nake so much easier the task of your
vives and daughters. F4armers, do not
leglect your well a single day longer,
)ut see that all about them is neat and

PioucrION AND (EPING OF EoS
jfteituntms it 1is a mutter of import
;anjce to keep eggs for a time. When
prlces rule low, they may be preserved
i coimparadve fre6lness for several
6veeks, even in July and August, it
are be taken to place then on end as
oon as brought in from the nest. One
tiot iecustoned to handling and care of
>ggs can form no Idea of the shortness
>f time required for the yolk of an egg
.o settle on one side, where It adheres
.o the,shell and quickly spoils in warm
iveather. Always place the egg on
Lhe big end. I have tried both ends,
tud have decided in favor of the former
position. Eggs should be gathered
rrom the nest every day, and where
3here are many hens kept, twice a day.
It matters not for what purpose we de
mire eggs, the hlens that produce them
qhould ill ways be young and healthy.
Eggs that are to be kept for any length
>f time should always be those from
Voung liens, or if two years, old, only
rrom those in perfect health. If this
rule is closely observed by the breeders
who export, eggs for hatching, from
)Ie locality to another, there will be
)etter satisfaction givent. It is of
nuch importance tha1t the eggs have
perfect shells, and a hen not In per
lect healt,h may4 drop her eggs reg
,ilarly, yet the shells may possess Imi
)erfectiois that render them unfit
tlther for keeping or hatehing.
CICKEIcEN Lca.-Vermin Is the post
)f pourtry, and when chieken houses
ret thoroughly intested, it is not an
.asy matter to clear them. If the house
ti washed with a hot lime wash, and
,he roosts are rubbed with a mixture of
<erostne oil and lard, the lice will be
nade uncomfortable, and if this treat
unet is repeated a few times, the house
md also the fowls will be quite free
roni vermin. If the house Is, as all
)oultry houses should be, detached
roni arna and other buildings, it
nary be fumigated. Shut it up tight
im close overy opening. Then place
pan of live coals oil the ground (or if
nust be a wooden floor, put down a

if brimstone, and get out quickly, cl

L'his Is an exceedingly dillidult question

uerely say that, In our opinion, three
ndi a-hall tons of corn would keep a

a six tons of hay. We may estimate
iso, that it will take three and a-half
oils of oats to keep a hiorse a year. A
