FATTENINO FOwL.--What a different
taste a fino, nicely and quickly fattened
fowl has when served on the table, com
pared with one which has been forced to
scratch for all Its living, and then be con
signed to the spit in anything but a fit con
dition for foodI Farmers realize th' im
portance of fattening quickly lhen feeding
beeves for the butcher, yet many (o not
realize the fact that what holds good. with
that kind of meat is equally true when ap
plied to fowls. Tenderness and juiciness
are results of fattening quickly, while
mere ordinary flavor ani want of tender
ness result from letting fowls run until
wanted tor use on the table. To enable
one to fatten fowls or chickens quickly it is
absolutely necessary to give such food as
will accomplish the purpose best, and to
this end we unhesitatingly recommend
plenty of milk, in any state from fresh to
thick. This should be fed in connection
with a grain diet, for one ccomplements
the other. If kept in a dark place and fed
unsparingly on milk, with grain food in
the proper proportions, you will soon have
somethiung very choice to set upon your Ia
ble for your friends, as well as for your
family. When milk is fed no water is re
quised for fattening fowls.
Muox.-An acre of swamp muck of good
quality, three feet deep, is actually worth
$25,000. No doubt such a statement is
surprising. So was the statement of Dr.
Lawes, of England, that a ton of bran fed
to cows return more than It cost in ma
nure. The best muck, free from sand,
contains two per cent. or forty pounds of
nitrogen in a ton. Nitrogen is worth in
the market twenty-five cents per pound,
so that a ton of swamp muck is worth $30
for the nitrogen in it. All that is needed
Is to work up the muck, so as to make the
nitrogen available. An acre of swamp
muck three feet deep contains 2,500 tons
and would rcquire eight months to draw
out,at ten loads a day. Few persons real
ize the value of the fertilizing element of
common waste matters which lie under
their feet, and the innumerable tons of
matter that may be available for fertilizing
purposes, or that many of the idle and no
glected materials represent a vast amount
of wealth. But it must beriuembered that
all swamp muck cannot be classed as of
good quality-some of it Is next door to
hMANAGEMENT OF OXEN.-The ox should
be as little abused by threats end whiping
as by stmnted feed and overtasked labor.
Loud and repeated hallooing, or the severe
use of the lash, is as impolitic as it Is cruel
and disgraceful. We never witness this
barbarity without wishing the brutes could
change places, long enough, at least, to
teach the biped that huianily by his own
sufferings which his reason and sensibility
have failed to inspire. Clear and intelli
gible, yet low and gentle words, are neces
sary to guide the well-trained, spirited ox.
The stick or whip is needed rather to indi
cate the precise movement desired than as
a stimulant or means of punislhnent. The
ox understands a moderate tone more per
feely than a boisterous one, for all sounds
become indistinct as they increase.
Ewgs in lamb should, as far as practi
cable, be fed and sheltered separately from

are apt to result injuriously, while such
sepration makos more convenient certain
little attention to which breeding ews ar
entitled as the yeaning season approaches,
and which may be profltablo accorded to
them. Advantage will be found in subdi
vision of the several ages and sexes into as
many smaller lots as circumstances wvill ad
mit of, as such course lessensa the limabilty
to crowoing and over-feeding of ime st rong
er animals at the expense of the weaker
ones. It also brings each animal morec di
rectly under thme eye of the attendant, who
will the more readily detect the first symp
toms of deviating from the diesiredi thrift.
IUNING Snuiuns. -- Animing sp)imayas,

siderably, for It is far better to have a few
strong, well seasoned shoots thanm a large
number om watery, weakly sprouts. home
trees will be sprout ing all over their stems;
these sprouts had1( better ho rubb::d off at

BREAD MAKINO. There is no more
important branch in the process of culinary
developement than that of bread making,
or any that requires more practice and care.
The Americans have more kinds of broad
than any other nation, yet they do not
always have better, and generally not as
good as is often found in other countries.
There are many ways of making bread: by
mixing with yeast, by using leaven, by salt
risings and milk yeast, s'd by mixing the
flour with water which is charged with
carbonic acid, called aerated bread. Yeast
bread is by far the most healthful and econ
omical of all modes of making it. There
are a great many rules, but the first prin
ciples are always the same. These are,
one quart of flour, a little more than one
fourth of a quart of water, one-fourth of a
cake of compiessed yeast, one-fourth of a
tablespoonful of sugar. The water should
always be blood warm, and the dough thor
oughly kneaded to evenly distribute the
yeast, and render the grain of the bread
fine and uniform. Milk is often used
instead of water, with a little butter, which
makes it more nutritious: yet there i1 no
bread which has the delicious, sweet taste
of the wheat, and which will keep as long
as yeast broad made with water. Leaven,
which one associates more with cookery
described in biblical literature, is a paste
iade of flour and water and allowed to
sour. Sometimes housekeepers and bakers
keep a piece of the risen dough for the next
mixing, and this is called leaven.
IVNEUMoNA.-There are few diseases in
which special treatment adapted to Individ
ual cases is more important than in pneu
monia; for the measures that would be
salutary in one case would be injurious or
even fatal in another. In the belief, there
fore, that such general directions as could
be given in the limited scope of this
article would he likely to do quite as much
harm au good, the few remaining remarks
shall refer to the oflice of nurse rather than
to that of doctor. The patient shotuld lie
with his shoulders somewhat elevated. in
protracted and debilitated cases his position
should be changed occasionally. in order to
preveri t the settling of the blood in any part
of the lungs. Care should be taken to ex
pose the chest aid body as little as possible,
The air of the sick room should be of a
uniform temperature, and warm, yet puri
fled by suilcient ventilation. In early
stages, what little diet the patient can take,
should be farinaceous drinks, such as gui
water, barley i a, or, thin gruel, to which
may be added a decoction of ripe fruit, or
the juice of oranges or fresh grapes, the
Indigestion portion tieing carefully rejected.
As the fever abates give tea, with toasted
broad or crackers, or a little rice; then
Indian mush nilk, broths, lighter mnt.,
eggs, oysters. Inl this, as in other diseases,
nat ure powerfully aids a sound constituton,
and with good nursing, and a little medical
treatment, will veiy often suffice.

said one evening; "Ma, may I go out and

it's too (lark; wait until to-morrow, when

Experiments in regard to the effect
upon horses of a diet of "pig nuts' have
recently been made in Germiany. For
some time it had been noticed that horses
were fond of these nuts, and would eager
ly drink water in which some of them had
been placed. Horses cared for in this way
shed their long winter hair early in spring,
and come out in very flue and glossy sui
iner coats. Two of the beasts upon which
Dr. Freitog of lalle experimented in tIis
way were as first very sliabby-looking crea
tures, but in a few weeks their bodies
rounded out. and they gained from eleven
to fourteen kilogramnes in weight in eigh
teen dayP. In the meantime they worked
more willingly and with greater effect than
than they had ever done before, and did

groomed and half-starved pony which was
submitted to this treatment- the nuts being
mixed with other food-gained thirty-three
kilogramnmes in twenty-eight days, and
though at first he was lazy and sleepy, In a
short time became sleek and spirited.
