In a country where all the laws of orn

r9ot round about with rank and file of
date and paln and sycamore, the tanks
of water that kept them green bordered
with vases in which grew tufts of pa
pyrus, with a little door opening into
the vineyard in the centre, and a canal
on one side of the quadran gle-tuese
were the gardens presided over by the
garder deity Khem, who was first cous
in to Greek Pan. They liked flowers,
those old Egyptians; they took tribute
of rare plants from conquered nations ;
spent as much money on the floral dec

gardens of Assyria and Babylon were
architectural in their character. When
Queen Amytis, homesick for her native
hills, declared to Nebuchadnezzer that
Babylon was a stale, flat and unprofit
able place, he made her hanging ga'
dens, whose terraces, three hundred
feet high, overtopped the city walls.
Down by the Euphrates were the gar
dens where the Israelites sat down and
wept, but here, high in the air, were
fountains and muiel and seats and ban
queting ialls. P'cople did not merely
make gardens, they built them.
Twenty-one hundred years before
Christ, Queen Semiramis built a gar
den at yie foot of Tecb, Bagistan,
twelve furlongs in compass, with a
great fountain in the centre of it-a
garden so famous that Alexander
thought it worth while to go out of his
way to see it. And when the Greek
general Lysander complimented Cyrus
on the beauty of his landscape garden

'rhe Romans also used a round spoon,

How 'ro FED CoAnS FODENH.
Every farmer has more or less of coarse
lodder, such as straw, corn stalks, mea
dow hay, and the like which he is
sometimes pussled to know how to
dispose of to advantage. If fed to cows
they soon shrink in milk, and fall out
of condition and it seems hardly profit
able to dispose of it in that way. It
fed to young stock, they will just make
out to live, and possibly hold their own
but usually they tall off in flesh and It
seems doubtful economy to feed them
in this way. If led to sheep they
scarcely make out to exist under such
treatment, some perhaps dying, and
others falling out of condition to such
an extent as to greatly, for the season,
injure their usefulness and profitable
ness. In fact, if fed to any kind of
farm stock, there are deolded'disadvan
tages attending the practice, and the
question how to best dispose of the
coarse fodder on the farm, is quite fre
quently an ever reouring perplexity to
the farmer. There are ways, however
we think, in which the coarse fodder
of the farm may be economically and
judiotously disposed of. The chemical
analysis of straw, corn fodder, meadow
hay and such articles, show that to a
certain extent they are incomple'e
foods, or in other words do not contalia
L suillcient amount or In the right pro
portion, of all the elements of food re
quired for the proper nourishment of
animals. The strsw and the corn fodder
have had tie grain romoved,and are left
in an incomplete condition for food, and
when led should have the defilciercy
supplied. Tihis can be doHe to the best
advantage by adding cotton seed meal
to the straw and stalks, in this way
supplying the defcliency in nitrogenous
and latty elements. The cotton 1oed
meal is very rich In nitrogenous and
fatty elements, and offers the most
economical means of making the straw,
corn stalk and meadjw hay equal in
feeding value to the best of hay. If
only half a pint to a pint of the meal is
led daily to young stock, a decided imi
provemenit will be noticeable. At first
t would probably have to be mixed
with bran or corn meal to Induce the
animals to eat It, but they will soon
relish It. Some larners may think
that, they cannot afford to buv cotton
seed meaL to feed with their coarse fod
der, but if they will try it one season,
they will be likely to conclude that
they cannot afford to get along without
buying it. The gain on the stock will
amply pay the ce's, and the increased
valute of tie dressing will repay it again.
The fertilizing elements c1 cotton seed
meal are worth the full market price of
tiMe omeal, which alfords the cheapest
fortilizer in the market. So that really,
the man who buys It has Its full value
in the dressIng made, and gets the in
crease on the stock as clear gain.
