Remarkable SwImmIng Feat -,I.
A remarkable feAt of swiwiniing wa!
accomplished when JaMes Finney
champion swimmer of the world,
swam from the North Pier, Black

of five miles. in Pursuance of the
terms of a wagei' of $1,000, Finne3
dived from the North Pier shortly be
fore a guarter to two In the presence
of a large body of spectators.
'The sca was by no means smooth,
and the tide being at ebb rendered the
task a soiewhat diflicult one. The
natch was a question rather of en
duranice than the establishment of a
speed record. Finney starte. at a

tied into I steady stroke. Ie was
he:dqd by a 'mall boat carrying a
white flag, and he kept a yard or two
behind all the way, passing the Ceu

Victoi-a Pie' fifty minutes later. At
haff-past fire he arrived at St. Annes.,
but could not reach the pier, the tide
- As the conditions of the wager ~re
~1qi-ed that he should approach the
pier by watr-, a tedious wait of two
hours followed, during which Finney
swam about, and by frequent changes
of position succeeded in keepin.; afloat
until the tide came In, when he swam
to the pier and went ashore at five
minutes to eight, having spent five
hours eleven minutes in the water.

Stone Banking For Barns.
In banking up against the walls o
basement barns, and especially ii
building up a passage way to the en
trance, there is always strong tempta
tion to use stones piled in loosely as s
basis, where stones are over plentiful
on the form. Yet thisususally prove.
a mistake. Rats will invariably effeci
a lodgement among such stones, and
they will in time work through intc
the barn basement. Besides, rain
will wash dirt among the stones, and
it will require constant atte:ation every
year to keep passage way so that
loaded wagons can be driyen over it.
Eradicating the Wild Carrot.
Mowing the wild carrot before it
matures seeds is much better than to
let it alone. But it may not be en
tirely effectual. A second crop of
flowering stems will soon follow the
mowing, and, if the weed is cut again,
a third. Each successive crop of
flowering stems will be shorter and
more feeble than the preceding one,
yet some short stems will at last be
found bearing clusters of flowers and
seeds. The sure way to eradicate
wild carrot is to pull it up by the
roots, and this can be easily done just
after a rain, when the ground is soft.
Producing Good Grapes.
A French agricultural journal gives
the method by which a vine grower of
Touraine is said to iroduce magnifi
cent grapes. He dissolves two kilo
grams of sulphate of iron in 100 liters
of water and sprinkles it on the leaves
and bunches of the vines. The first
application is male when the grapes
are about one-third their full size, the
second about a month later and the
third about twenty days before they
are cut. It is asserted that corre
sponding results are obtained with
pears, apples and cherries. The
method is inexpensive and the journal
quoted recommends a trial, though it
does not guarantee the success of the
treatment in all cases.
Ventilating Poultry Houses.
Chicken "cranks" in a reat many
cases are generally very enthusiastic
over the matter of ventilating the
houses in which poultry are kept, and
many are the schemes practiced in or
der to accomplish this end. Ventila
tion is an excellent thing, though I be
lieve that on the majority of farms,
and especially at this season of the
year, a little more attention should be
paid in trying to determine how not
to ventilate. And this not only ap
plies to the poultry house but also to
the barns. Give this matter your
time from now on till spring, for with
out a doubt there has been far more
birds killed by the over-ventilation
than by under-ventilation. During1
the colder months it is almost impos
sible to have a chicken house too
warm, and all the fresh air the birds
will need is more than likely to find I
its way into the house in some shap<
or manner.-Weekly Witness. -
The parsniM~iisually grown on
very rich ground, and when much
manure has been used it often has a
rank taste hezathna e,-iN- *r
much better to let the parsnips stay
in the ground until the soil around it
has frozen once or twice. It may be
gathered after the first thaw and
housed, when it will be found that
the rank flavor from the manure has
passed away, ansd the parsnip will be
tender and sweet. Some people leave
the parsnip in t'ie ground all winter.
It does not hurt it to freeze while in
ground, provided it is thawed in con
tact with the soil. The greater dan
ger in leaving parsnips out all winter
is that they will be forgotten in spring
until the warm weather has started
the shoots for seed bearing. Then
the parsnip becomes poisonous. But
if dug as soon in spring as the ground
is thawed, the parsnips will be better
than if dug in the fall and wintered
in a cellar.

In watering, as in feeding horses, a
man must study the individuality of
his animal. With few exceptions. in
my opinion, says a writer in Farming,
a horse should have water in sufficient
quantities to satisfy his thirst when
ever he is thirsty.
Theoretically speaking, a horse
should first be given drink, then hay,
and lastly oats. The capacity of his
stomach is limited, and it fed oats,
then hay, and then watered, some of
the oats may be forced out of the
stomach (especially if he is a heavy
feede) before theyv have been sutii
ciently acted upon by the digestive
juices, andi consequently will pass oil

ReepIng Cabbage During Winter.
It is agreed by most poultrymen
that cabbage is one of the best green
foods for poultry during the winter,
but it is usually hard to keep heads in
good condition for more than a few
weeks after winter sets in. Here is a
plan worth trying. It has been suc
cessfully used for several seasons in
sections where the winter is peculiar
ly trying owing to lack of snow to
furnish partial protection. The cab
bages are pulled up by the roots and
carted to a part of the farm where tht
ground is sloping. It so happens
where the plan was tried that the
ground was near a cluster of trees.
but a locality near by buildings would
give the same protection. A shallow
trench is dug, say two feet deep, and
filled a foot deep with leaves. On
this bed of leaves the cabbages are set
roots up, close together. Leaves are
then heaped over them in large quin
tities and held in place with brush.
The trenches are made in beds with
deep farrows between them to carry
off the water, the furrow being made
with the slope of the land so that the
water will not run against the side of
the beds. The cabbages will freeze,
but will keep in perfect condition and
may be easily taken out as wanted and
after being thawed out may be chopped
up for use on the table or for the
poultry. By this plan green food
may be had until late in the spring.
The old plan of blanching or bleach
ing celery with earth is objectionable
from the fact that wherever the soil
comes in contact with the celery stalks
it invariably causes rust. The use of
boards is all right, but when a con
siderable quantity of celery is grown
it is quite an effort to handle thes4
boards, to say nothing of the expense.
The accompanying cut shows a plan

for using tarred roofing paper, which
is nailed to light frames with a heavier
stake at either end long enough that
they may be driven into the ground
romn six to eight inches. The cut
shows plainly how to construct such a
crame wiith the strips at the top to
bold it in position.. If the paper used
is thin or lightweight an extra coat of

Professor Rlobertson in his annual
report says: In filling a silo particular
pains should be taken to spread the
ensilage evenly over the surface; other
wise the leaves and lighter parts may
lie in one place, and the stalks and
ears in another. The ensilage at the
sides and corners of the silo should be
trodden down as compactly as possi
ble. Then immediately after the silo
is filled it should be covered with a
layer of four or six inches of cut straw,
and that by about eighteen inches or
two feet of any kind of rough straw.
In the feeding out of the ensilage,
it is not a good plan to expose a large
surface in the silo at one time. Where
practicable, only as much of the sur
face of the ensilage should be uncov
ered as will cause a depth of about six
inches to be removed from it by feed
ing every day. A half or one-qniarter
of the ensilage may be uncovered at
one time, and it may be cut down with
a hay knife, leaving a perpendicular
face, which will mold very slightly.
Where too large a surface of ensilage
is exposed to the air it becomes oftfen
sive to the smell and gives rise to the
growth of molds. These sometimes
contaminate the stable and spread the
belief that the feeding of ensilage im
parts a flavor to the milk. Such flavors
get into the milk through the atmos
phere, and not through the feeding of
Uses of the SoHl.
In the first place it is an immense
workshop in which chemical and bio
logical changes are constantly going
on. The minute soil particles or rock
fragments are continually being dis
solved and made ready for hungry
plant roots. The soil is the home of
a vast army of living creatures. We
never see them. They are too small.
They are the lowest form of life-sim
ple, one-celled plants, in the shape of
spheres or ovals, or short rods. How
small are these creatures of the earth?
In transverse diameter one twventy-five
thousandth of an inch is a common
merasurement. Increase tl'e hight of
the ordinary man one thousand times
and his head would be over a mile
above the earth, yet one of these little
creatures under the same magnifica
tion would have plenty of room to
dance up and down iu the film of water
betwecen two plates of glass pressed
firmly tog ether. From 100 to 250 of
t heo ace..d sikh1; by.% would make
the6 thcns of ani ordinary sheet of
p~aper.. These little fellows are con
tually at work causing decay of
veg etable uiatter in the soil, and thus
making plant food. They are among
the farmer's best friends. Second,
the soil is a great storehouase of water.
If we always had plcnty of moisturein
our~ soils we would have good crops.
The soil acts as a lrge sponge to an
sorb water and hiold it for the use of
crops. Third, the soil is a home for
