"Well," replied Aunt Kate, not. en.

Soon after her arrival at her aunt's

"Mend and darni Why, yes, child,"
replied her aunt.
"I want to learn to do all kinds of

crops are growing larger every year, so
s the average quality, and prices have
corresponded with the quality every
season. Growers who sometimes be
coine discouraged should niot overlook
the fact that population and demend
are increasing and that as buyerk become
educated to a knowledge of the best
kinds of produce thy naturally prefer
uch, and are willing to pay more for
it. There is o product for the entire
season greater than eggs, yet with im
portations from europe to assist in
mupplying the markets the prices are al
ways high in proportion to cost, and in
winter vary from 20 to 90 cents per
dozen. It is well known that those
who purchase eggs will leave a well
stocked market In order to procure
sulch 'as may be knoten to be strictly
fresh, and will not hesitate in paying
any price asked; so with milk and
butter, which command ready sale, but
for which no fxed prices are possible
owing to difference ic quality.
Though butter has competed with sub
stitutes and prices have at times been
very low, yet that of frst-grade quality
has always been sold at an advanced
price over the usual market quotation.
There ds no danger of an overstocked
market to the farmer, dairyman or
fruitrower who is willing ,to expend
the labor necesry for the production
of something that is choice and not
easily procured, 1t should be the aim
to send articles to market that are a
little better than those to be had, and
im so doing not only will the best prices
be obtained but the producer will build
a reputation for himself that will be to
his advantage the next season.

nearly correct if the exposure be a bad

letting it rest in a ple against the side
of the stable exposed to the rain drip

THE practice of giving a final culti
vation to corn and then allowing the
crop to remain until matured, whether
the field be covered with grass or not,
has in.lured many promising crops. A
field of corn should be cultivated as
often as may be necessary without re
gard to its stage of growth. it should
be kept clean and the soil always in a
loose condition, and the crop will there
by be larger and the plants better en
abled to endure drought.
THEn experiments of Dr. Veeleker,
of the Royal Society of England, prove
that manure gradually depreciates by
keeping, -even under the very best
management, it gains In water and
loses in valuable organic matter which
is spent in the fermantation. It stands
to reason, if this be true, that the old
fashioned method of turning and work
ing over manure for six months before
using is wasteful and to be avoided.

When hens are shedding feathers they of
ten stop laying and grow fat. pgt people
consider fat a sign of health., 'Th fatten
ing of moulting hens, howetler as ith.
some people, produces debility rather than
health. avany,of the worst cases of roup
are contracted, while the hns are moulting.
The food of moulting hens,. if largely
vegetable is fat-forming, and not required
for growing - feathers. rherpfore corn-fed
hens get very fat. 'They need more nitro.
gen and phosphate elements in their food
when moulting, which if not supplied they
stop laying, because the growing feathers
have used all, and left no nitrogenous leat
ter to form eggs. At this season, killing
old hens and relying on young pullots is a
great mistake, where people have a few
hens and late pullots. Because, it properly
fed, the hens will have their new plumage
and lay well all winter; while the pullets
unless specially treated may not commence
laying.until spring, when high prices for
eggas have fallen one-half. Again an old
hen's egg will hatch at more vigorous chick
en than a pullet's egg.
John It. Jones, Suffield, Conn., a breeder
of prize winning muottled Javas, says:
"I find Sheridan's Condition Powder, fed Qne
daily in the food, very valuable for moulting hens.
I have used it two years for exhibition birds. It
assists in growinI new Ie-itters,makes the coms
a bright red ani gsves a rich gloss to the laui
age. It vill also make liens lay and the eggs
hatch well. 1 fnd when ihe other egg-foods ae
used in quantities to force egg production the
egas do not hatch."
The above Is the experience of many people in
using Sheritan's Powder. If fo,t to youn pullets

ted to the institute as a plant growing
in siver ore localhties. Most of them
lhad'rose-colored blossoms. On one or
two the blossoms were yellow. Mrs.
Richards has since reported the inter
esting results of chemical analysis.
In consequence of the views above
suggested as to the possible significance
of color, the pink floweed plants were
treated separately. The specimens
were cleaned as completely as possible
from earth; but this separation could
-not be made perfect, because the earth
adhered in -particles to the woolly
leaves,-as was proved bythe subsequent
-detection in the ash of scales of bro z za
mica. The plants lost 0 per cent, of
moisture on drying at .1000 C., and
yielded 12 per cent. of ash, of whioh
4.8 per cent, was soluble i actd. The
preseunce of arsenic was qualitatively
proved in the plants, and the earth was
found to contain a considerable portion
of it, but silver could not be found.
In the planits with yellow flowers ar
seilic was not found.
An Ausirian paper claims ihat the
first lightningr-rod was constructed by
a monk in Bohaemia. The apparatus
which he set up- In the garden of the
curate of Frenditz in 1762 was com-.

rod st.ipportlng twelve curved up
branches, and terminating in as many
metallic -boxes, Slhod with Iron ore and
ciosed by a boxwcod cover traversed
by twenti)-seven sharp li'on point,
whicli plunged at their base in the ore.
All the system was united to the earth
by a large chain. The enemies of
Diwisch, jealous of his success at the
Court.of Vienna, excited the peasants
of the locallit agemnst him, pnd under
the pl'etext that it was the cause of the
gret dougt teymade him take
dontelgtning-rod which he had
utilised for six years. -What is most
curious is the form of thuis first lightn
