Now Kaffirs Bank Their Money.
The natives of that part of South.
Africa which to a great extent is in
habited by Bushrien and Hottentots
have a peculiar s.-stem of banks and
banking.
These Kaffirs, a-mong whom this
curious system of banking obtains,
live near Kaffraria, in the south of the
Colony ejuntry. The natives come
down from their country to trade
in the several villages and towns in
large numbers, stay with the Boers for
a time, then return to Kaffraria.
Their banking facilities are very
primitive, and consist entirely of banks,
of deposit alone, without banks of dis
count or issue, and they have no
cheeks. But still they enjoy banking
privilege;, such as they are.
F'rom those who trade, of their own
number, they select one, who for the
occasion is to be tbeir banker. He is
converted into a bank of deposit by
putting all the money of those whose
banker he is into a bag, and then they
sally forth to the stores to buy what
ever they want.
When an article is purchased by any
of those who are in this banking ar
rangenent the price of the article is
taken by the banker from the deposit
money bag, counted several times and
then paid to the seiler of the article.
after which all the hank depositors
cry out to the banker in the presence
of two witnesses selected:
-"You owe me so much:" This is then
repeated by the witnesses. The gen
eral accounting comes between the
banker and his several depositors,
when all desired purchases have been
aade. after which all the natives de
part for their northern wilds.-Tit-Bits.

eclaltning Abandoned Farms.
A farmer in Paxton, Worcester
County, Ulass., who settled upon an
abandoned farm about two years ago,
is reported to have raised on eight
acres this year 7500 bushels of pota
toes, 25,000 cucumbers-the latter
from a single acre-830 barrels of
cabbages, 700 bushels of tomatoes,
350 barrels of carrots, 600 bushels oi
parsnips, 1100 bushels of turnips, 400
bushels of beets and 1100 heads of
cauliflower, besides squashes and some
other truck ad libitum, and all the
vegetables used by the family. Of
course it is presumed that these pro
ducts were marketed at a profit, and,
that being the case, it is easy to see
why many of New England's aban
doned farms are being reclaimed.
Boston Cultivator.
GrowlnX Turnips.
We have never seen a crop of 1000
bushels of turnips grown on an acre,
though we saw one field that came
very near it, exceeding 900 bushels,
if we remember rightly, but at a farm
ers' institute in New Brunswick one
speaker told how he succeeded in
growing 1000 bu::hels per acre. He
took a poor piece of ground in the
fall, and after he had plowed it he put,
on thirty tons of manure to the acre
and harrowed it in. -He wants no
manure plowed in unless it is to be
plowed up again in the spring, harrow
lightly and furrowed two feet apart
about two irches deep. In the fur
rows he strewed 250 pounds of super
phosphate to the acre. He uses two
pounds of specially selected turnip
seed to the acre. When they are two
inches high he thins them to*eighteen
inches apart. After this he keeps
the horse cultivator ranning two or
three times a week betwen the rows.
As he grows them principally as a
suculontwinter food for.his stock, he
i~ws eaily, that they may have time
to grow. When we used to grow them
we gave greater distance between the
rows and did not sow them until July,
and most of them grew as large as
dealers cared to have them fe table
use, while the small and thL very
large were saved for the stock. When
we could sell the best at fifty cents a
bushel or more we thought it was
more than they were worth for -stock
feeding.
Feed to a Finish.
Never before in the history of the
trade has there been so wide a margin
between half-fat and prime, ripe beeves
as exists at present. The situation
offers every inducement for feeders to
make their cattle fat, and on the other
hand the wide range in value plainly
points to the penalty that must he
paid by those who disregard the law
of supply and demand and persist in
c rowding half -ripe cattle on a market
already over-supplied with that class.
|Many of the unlinished cattle marketed
ji uring the past few weeks would with
' to ninety days' longer feed have
co ' t eventy-five cents to $1 more
ier hue ounds, which would be
.ost. ad la . ease
i wegh: would near y oniset the cor
d labor. While we do not antici- s
te any further advance, except for a cc
w fancy holiday cattle, we ao look p
r a good steady demand and satis
actory prices for well-fattened cattle blh
r an indefinite period. Where a a
an is feeding a considerable number
E cattle it is an excellent plan to keep m
>pping out the bunch and sending in a
load or two of the fattest as fast as i
ey are ready. This not only divides. I i
e risk and gives the cattle left be- I s
iind a better chauce to mature but to
iso avoids the dead loss ol holding te
pe cattle, as there is no profit in p
eding a steer after he is ready forg
arket. It is poor policy to hold a I
,ig drove of cattle simply because
1ere is a light end of one or two loadsu
hat is not finished. The feeder who's
~arefully watches his drove and ships f
he fattest steers as fast as ripe and w
den pushes the others along to the
ame condition is, other things being
qual, the successful one.
Exhausted Soils.
:rofessor L. H. Bailey, of Cornell v
Iniversity Experiment Station, says
that impoverished soils are usually e c
those that have been neglected. Not it
aving been tilled they have become
eloddy, hard and foul. They may ic
lack in humus, which can be reme- w
ied by stable manure or plowing
nder green crops, or they may lack a;
ome one of the three important fer- i
tilizing elements. An average of!
hirty-four analyses of soil shows
that an acre of land may contain in t
eight inches of the surface soil 3217
ounds of nitrogen, 3936 pounds of
hosphoric acid and 17.597 pounds of
potash, beside what may i>e in stones
and gravel which will not pass through
esses one-fifth of an inch square. n
T'his would be enough to grow abcuth
200 ordinary crops if it was all avail- jP
able. It becomes so by action of
hat he calls " film water," that is the i,
water adhering to the smaller particles ,
of soil, ii this water mingles wit:h the a
umus to develop humic a.cid. But r
this water must be drained down
through the surface soil to the water a
bed below, that the air may penetrate
the soil. If it does not, it absorbs
et, evaporates and leaves the land
eold. When the water drains off an-I
the surface is well tilled it becomes
arm, and the water is drawn up byt
apillary attraction, thus preventin~
loss by drought as well as brings back:
the dissolved fertilizing elements to
the surface or near it, where the plant
roots cnn find them. On many sols%
these two items of drainage and till
age are more needed than fertilizers
though most effectual when the soil
i made light or porous and warm by~
the addition of humus or vegetable
matter.
Excesive Fat Frevents E:g Formnation.
In some way excessive fat destroys
the breeding~power of animal.4, a.s is.
well known by the men that put them
in what is calIed show condition. Fax
in tiie hen seen?s to destroy'not on'
the power of elaborating eggs, but also
the p6wer of the organs to eve'n
produce the embryo of the eggs. KEl'
a hen that is not tat and, though sne
may not be laying eggs at the time,
large numbers of embryonic eggs wiil
be fonrA. Someti-nes these emt>ryonic
egga vemain undeveloped for a very
long time, showing that the organa
tht probeile them are busy a long
Lime before the organs that develop I
the eggs have begun work. EvidentlyI
the latter require periods of rest be
tween every clutch of eggs.
But avery fat hen when killed shows
not the slightest trace of these em
bryonic eggs. The function to even
produce the germs seems to have de
parted. The writer has killed hens
that he did not think too fat to lay
and has found them in this condition,
and that, too, at a season when other
hens were laying vigorously. At just
what stage of fatness the lien is
rendered impotent to produce eggs
science has not yet determined, or
whether this stage varies in the hens
of different ages. It is without doubt
true that many hens are kept for years
at a total loss as to cost of keeping,
for certainly many do not lay an eg
from one year's end to another.
There may be other elements enter
ing into the question that we do not
yet understand, and it may be tbst
other things beside excessive fat pre
vent egg formation and development.
But with the limited light we now
have on the subject it is probable that
the best way to keep a flock culled
down to the actual layers is to keep
the fat hens killed off. This leads to
the remark that some hens get fat
under any system of feeding. The
writer has been surprised when feed
ing a ration balanced against fat to
find here and there a hen laying on
fat and ceasing to lay eggs. Evidently
fowls show the same characteristics
as breeds of larger live stock-the
ability with some to develop size and
fat at the expense of every other func
tion.
Pics For the Dairy .kariuer.
The best and most profitable way of
disposing of skim milk and buttermilk
is to feed them to pigs. Wherc but
ter is made extensively, or even on a
small scale, there is opportuniity-for,
eeping pigs at a very slight-cost. If
the required number are not raised
upon the farm, they may be purchased
at six weeks old, or at weaning time.
For a few weeks at least after weaning
they will thrive best on sweet skim
milk. Buttermilk is also good, but
should not be fed undiluted, or scours
may result. With plenty of warmed
milk combined with bran, shorts or
other ground feed-of which corn
should form but a small portion, if
any-pasture if conveniett, &Ad pure
water at all times, pigs which have re
ceived good care through the mother
previous to weaning them will grow to
thrifty maturity.
The practice of keeping over pigs or
shotes until a year old or more is al
most if not quite out of date. Quick
returns make the profit in raising hogs
for market. It must be an exceptional
case which would warrant keeping
them longer than six to eight months.
As fast as the pigs of one lot are
fattened and sold, others should be
ready to take the places of those dis.
posed of. It is far better, in the
witer's estimation, which is based
upon considerable experienace. to fe ed
milk to pigs rather than to ca4ves, ex
cept in the ease of heifers or an ex
ceptionally fine male, which it might
Lbe desirable to raise. A pig at, six
months will bring nearly asme a

In arranging a pigpen, give special

GOOD ROADS NOTEI
The Wide Tire Law.
SS it is evident tha't the public
generally will pay no atten
tion to the wide tire law un
til it has been tested in the
courts-that, in fact, being the Cali
fornia practice as to all laws-those
who were active in securing the pas
sage of the law should lose no time in
filing information against those who
violate it. It should not be done in
malice, nor should any general crusade
be commenced, for public sentiment
is in favor of the law, and the failure
to prepare for complying with it is
due partly to its ambiguity, but mainly
to the arrogant position assumed by
the trade, some of whom openly avow
their intent to defy the law. Test
cases should be carefully selected so
as to avoid those expressions in the
)aw which are ambiguous or which
;deal with interstate commerce. The
State probably has power to prevent
the sale of wagone which it deems im
proper to be used. It certainly has
p,ower to prevent the use of such
wagons upon the public roads. - The
only question in this case is as to
whether the Legislature has expressed
its intent so clearly that the courts
'cannot avoid convicting on proper
-evidence. For example, the law speaks
of a "tubular or iron axle," when it
Omeans a "tubular steel or iron axle."

The Good 1coais of Nev Jersey.
The great movement for improved
roads in the United States originated,
it is generally believed; in Essex
County, N. J., more than thirty years
ago. Snme progressive men in the
Board of Freeholders conceived the
idea of building a system of hard
roads by the macadam process, and a
special act was passed constituting a
Road Board. The bulk of the cust
was assessed upon the county at
large and was provided for in the
annual taxes. Newark paid four
fifths of this tar.. Th re was much
opposition and consta.# protest, but
the work went resolutL on,

der which hundreds of milss of new

ounty the improvement has gone on

w law townships can petition inde

DeKalb County's famous sink hole
giving the Commissioners no little
rouble and expense. This swamp
,erhaps comes nearer being bottom
ess than any other spot in northern
niana. At least three bridges are
known to have sunk out of sight, and
sow the Commissioners have given
he contract to Charles Rugman, of
~uburn, to construct the bed upon
which another bridge will be erected.
he work of grading commenced
three weeks ago, and the dirt which
as filled in it gradually kept sinking,
and by the next dsy none of the prey-.
jous day's work would be in sight.
This method of filling was continued
for several days, believing all the
time that a solid footing would soon
e found, but with no avail. The
earth failing to remain in sight, the
workmern were sent to the woods, and
brush to the depth of six feet was
iled in the roadway, after which long
jogs 'n.re laid lengthwise across, with
ne end resting on the - solid banks.
n these were fastened planks, and
then the earth hauled in and the road
bed formed. Several attempts have
been made to ascertain the depth of
this hole, and it is known to be at
least eighty-nine feet deep. It is be
ieved to be mucky at least to a depth
of 200 feet.
The West Has the Fever.
A bicycle dealer says:"The West has
the road fever bad, or perhaps I
should say good, because it is the best
fever that any section of the country
eve- got. Every penny put into a good

bicyclists are the only people that reap'
the benefit of good m oads is disappear

kind ought to. I suppose every well
informed person to-day realizes the'
many advantages of road improvement
I the West last year there were een- 1
tructed thousands upon thousands of
ciles of good roads. Now, I agure~
that every mile of good road means a
sale of from ten to twenty bicycles,

Yrom recent developments it is ap
parent that the Southern States will
not possess the monopoly of supplying
northern cities with garden products, I
says the Philadelphia Record. The
science of refrigeration and the con
struction of refrigerator ships and r
frigerator cars has reached such a high
state that it is now possible to raise
fruit, it might be said, in almost any
part of the world, and carry it to any
other part.' The fact has been for
years demonstrated by the shipment df
carcasses from Australia to England by
the shipload, where an enormous trade
has been built up. The same principle
can be applied to -the transportation of
fruits. A very large proportion of the
produet of California is now shipped
eastward in refrigerator cars. and some
of the finest fruits on display in the
East come from that State in this way.
The agriculturists in the South have re
cently had their attention directed to
the advisability of diversifying crops
by the high price paid for garden pro
ducts. The market garden has of late
years become a very important factor
In southern agricultural economy.
Enterprisi.ng capitalists, since the de
velopment of Mexico by railroads have
been looking' at the possibilities of cli
mate there, and have taken steps in
some cases to establish plantations for
the growth of fruits on a large scale,
which it is their intention to ship by re
frigerator processes to United States
ta ts and then to inland points. The
schemes read well, and apparently are
weil based. There appears to be no
reason why garden truck could not be
raised-!n Mexfco and delivered safely
and profitably to a great many cities
nd towns throughout the United
States. A great many products there
are four to eight weeks ahead of the
South. Dairy farming has become
very profitable. Milk in large cities
sells at 25 cents in Mexico; butter at 36
to 4S cents a pound. Labor costs only
from 12 to 25 cents a day. Sugar cane
turned into brown sugar yields from I
$70 to $95 an acre gross. Green barley I
and corn are raised f' large quantities
for fodder.
Cattle raising since the Spanish war
has been greatly stimulated, and the
western cattlemen are now therg_lay
ing the foundations for big ranches.
Wheat is cultivated on the high table
lands of Central Mexico, but It is not
as good as that grown in the States.
