Lgg Before the Civil War ie Wove Coats ol
Mail as a Side Line.
"About two years ago," (aid a Poy
dras street business man, "there died
at the Charity Hospital an eccentrid
old German, who once upon a time fob
lowed the queerest trade in the worjd.
He was a maker of coats of mail. Long
before the war he had a little jewelry
shop o, the north side of Canal street,
and the coat-of-mail business was a
sort of private sida line. The armor lie
then made was composed of small
links of very hard steel, woven to
gether so compactly that one could not
thrust even a pin through the inter
stices, and it was said that the 'coats'
would turn either a knife or bullet.
They were fashioned something like a
sleeveless undershirt. and were intend
ed to be worn immediately beneath the
outside garment. In those days the
use of such devices was popularly at
tributed to fellows who wanted to se
cure an unfair advantage in duelling,
and the reputation of wearing one un
der any circumstances was fatal to a
reputation for courage. Consequently
the old German didn't go to any pains
to exploit his business, and his cus
tomers must have come to him through
many devious channels. I knew the
old chap quite well when I was a boy,
and I have often seen him putting the
mail together in his little back room.
He got the links from Germany and
they came in long single-strand chains,
which he fastened together with small
steel rings, thus building up a fabric
'like knitting a stocking. The coats
were made over a wooden form,
shaped like a man's torso, and were
After the war broke out a good many
men bought them openly, as a legiti
mate protection, and for a while the
old man had more business than he
could attend to. I went into the army
and lost .ight of him until some years
after peace was declared. When I en
countered him one day, working as a
journeyman watchmaker, I asked at
once whether he rade any more chain
armor, and he laughed and said it had
gone out of fashion. I believe, how
ever, that he used to still make a coat
now and then -for some crank up to
the time of h's death. Of late years
he quit active business and lived in
quiet retirement out near St. John's
bayou."-New Orleans Times - Demo

In our cucumber houses bees are

are opening, the first lot being al

should go to the plant. Spot caused

Care of Milk, and Churning.
As soon as drawn from the cow, put
the milk where no bad odors can reach
it, or better, as soon as a pail is filled
strain it into the can and place in a
tank of cold water or run through the
separator if ore is used. If ice is
plentiful, reduce the temperature of
the water to forty-five degrees and
practically all the cream will be ob
tained. Do not mix the night's and
morning's milk if the best grade of
butter is expected.
Change the water in the tank often
enough to prevent its becoming foul.
If the water is kept at about fifty-five
degrees, practically all the cream will
rise in twenty-four hours. Skim and
when enough is obtained for a churn
ing, raise to a temperature of sixty to
sixty-five degrees to ripen. Hasten
the ripening by using sour skimmilk
as a starter. In winter churn at six
ty-five degrees; in summer fifty-five
to sixty is preferable. As soon as the
granuiles are the size of wheat grains,
draw off and wash until all the butter
milk is removed. Work, salt and
market as soon .as possible. If you
are so unfortunate as to get a poor
grade of butter it must be consumed
at once or it will soon be unok ,'se.

Niter In Maple Syrup.
Being heavjer than syrup, niter, or

is one reason w io
pans without partitions are pref .
The rapid boiling over the whole sur

and no serious trouble is experienced.
Sorme evaporators are so constructed
nat the pans are interchangeable.
This is a great help, as by moving the
syrup pans, on which the formation is
mostly, further ahead in the arch it
can be boiled off. Diluted muriatic
acid in the proportion of one part of
acid to two of 'water is probably as
good as anything to clean the pans.
This should be carefully applied and
the pans thoroughly washed after
ward. A small amount of this acid in
the sap would spoil the syrup. I have
tried several ways of getting this sub
stance out of the syrup. I have

The Best Cattle For the Farm.
In the judgment of the writer there
are three classes of cattle: The special
dairy cattle, the special beef cattle
and the general purpose cattle. The
first should be kept by all dairymen
who are making dairying their special
work and the next by those who breed
for beef only, where the calves must
be raised by the dams. The place for
the general purpose cow is on the
average farm where the farmer wishes
to grow a good beef animal, and at the
same time he is obliged to milk his
cows in order to have milk and butter
for the family without a cash outlay
for same. But right here it might be
well to give our idea of a general pu
pose cow. She is one that gives a
large amount of milk, and produces
calf that can be grown into a good
quality of beef at an early age. She
may not give as much milk as the
special dairy cow, nor her calves make
gnite so mucb meat as those of the
highest type of beef cattle. She is the
only kind of a cow the average farmer
can afford to keep who wants to grow
beef and cannot afford to keep a special
beef cow for the whole year with no
other income from her than the calf
she produces. The average farmer
can get this general purpose cow with
out so much cash outlay as it takes to
start in special breeding. Cows of
common or mixed breeding will answer
for the foundation providing they are
large in body and roomy in frame and
good milkers. If there any dairyv
blood in them they will be less able
to produce the iight kind of calves.
There is no better material for founda
tion stoekthan good short horn grades.
The sire should be pure bred, of good
beef blood, a short-horn of the milk
ing strain preferred. The average
farmer wants a cow that will average
not less than 200 pounds of butter
per year and produce a calf that will
weigh 1300 to 1400 pounds at t)wo
years old.-John Libey, in Farmers'
Devices For Feeding Livo Stock.
Anything thst will facilitate the
work of feeding of live stock should
be welcomed by farmers. Two con

quarter-inch board fitted nicely in the
pipe and well nailed to its place. The

To hold the even half peck for a seven
inch pipe, the depth should be just
seven inches. B is a grain scoop for
filling sacks, etc. It is made from a
piece from sheetiron eighteen inches
long by fourteen inches wide. The
best way to fasten the sides to the

it, from end to end, and draw the
sides up with a small bolt. The
handle is attached to this cross-piece
and to the end piece, as shown.

Spouts with "cut offs" for drawing
small grains, ground feed, etc., from
bins on a higher level, are quite com
mon, but such conveniences are not so
common about corn-cribs. Fig. 2
represents a form of spout or "shoot"
by which corn can be drawn from a
crib very nicely. The opening in the
crib should be not less than sixteen
inches square and the shoot, the same
size, is set sloping down at an angle
of forty degrees. It should be about
two feet long. The bottom is in two
pieces, the lower half being hinged td
the upper. To shut off the corn, this
portion of the bottom is simply turned
up-and hooked. A, Fig. 2, shows the
shoot with the top off and the bottom
let down. B shows the shoot closed.
T wo or three shoots like this along
the side of a crib will save a great
deal of shoveling and of lifting also,
if the crib isiso situated that the corn
can be run directly into a sled or
wagon.-Albert Rex, in Ohio Farmer.
The Maintenance of Fertility.
N~o soil in itself will hold its fer
tility. Nature cannot reclaim it in
half the time man can. If man acts
in unison with nature, the reclamation
will be rapid. To do this tillage is
first necessary. Many years -ago,
Jethro Tnll said, "Tillage ismanure."
He was right in so far as he went, but
alof his lesson.
of the lesson is humus and m e
kept in the soil.
Tillage now changes unavailable
plant food into the available form.
The great agent to do this is the air.
Keep the air from the tomatb can, or
the fruit jar, and the fruit and vege
table keep pure and well preserved.
Admit the air and decay and decom
position at once results. So with thd
soil. Admit the air to it and in it,
and decay and decomposition at once
result. What is this decay and de
composition? The change of unas
similble plant food iinto the assimil
able form. This is the great oflce for
the air in the soil. This results from
tillage. We have scarcely begun to
realze how important tillage is in
this respect, but it is physical im
provement, and that is the greatest
thought of our incoming agriculture.
Allied with tillage to promote phys
ical improvement is the growing of
clover. Clover, by means of the'
tuberles that grow in its roots, tako
from the air what is unavailable
nitrogen, and changes it ,iuto thd
assimilable soil nitrogen. The resuli
obtained from analysis by Cornell
University show that over 1.300'
pounds of nitrogen were added to the
soil by so doing. This, in great
measure, answers the supplying ot1
this important fertilizing ingredient.
Where annual husbandry is followed,
a good forage is necessary for profit
able feeding. There is no better for
age for New England farmers than
clover. It is almost a balanced ratiosi
in itself, and has nearly three times
the feeding value that timothy has.
If the soil is in any state of tiltbj
lover will grow, and in its growiing,
it furnishes nitrogen and a superio~r
forage for all kinds of live stock, Now,'
what about the other two important
elements of plant growth; is there any
way to get potash and phosphoric acid'.
Yes; in commercial form. Neithers
are expensive, in comparison with
nitrogen, and as they cannot be obj
taed from the air, they must come
either from the soil cr some outward
means. Fortunately, nature has far
nished ur large supplies of both. WdI
can purchase our potash in form oli
muriate of potash, and our phosphorid
acid in form of acid phosphate, and'
then add these at rate of one hundred
to three hundred pounds per acre u n
til a good tilth has been obtained, and
a good physical condition results.
Then, adopting a system or crop ro
tation, and annual husbandry, our
soils will not only improve, but reach
a state where the maximum crop pro
duction will ruesult. Then farming will
be a pleasure and profitable undertak

from the Atlantic to the Pacific seems
to your committee to be between the
fortieth and forty-second parallels of
latitude. This embraces Boston, from

Mountains at Denver, reaching Salt
Lake, and thence southwestwardly to
Sacramento and San - Francisco, a
southern line reaching thence to Los
Angeles, and a northerly one Portland,
Ore., and Seattle, Wash.
Resolved, That in view of the mili
tary importance of such a highway,
and of the advantages to those sec
tions through which it would be built,
and, furthermore, in view of the ex
ample in good road building it would
give to the people of twenty-five States
and territories, through which it would
pass, the matter be brought] promi
nently to the attention of the people of
the twenty-fivt States and territories

New Jersey's New Roads.
The report of the Commissioner of
Public Roads of New Jersey states
that under State aid a total of 440
miles of new roads have been built,
at a cost of $715,826.06. As the State
pays one-third of the cost of build
ing, the total expenditure up to the
present time was $2,147,478.18. This
work was done in thirteen counties.
Last year the operations were greatly
enlarged, the total construction being
114 2-3 miles, as against 84 1-2 miles
the previous year. In 1896 eighii
counties took the benefit of the State
law, and in 1897-8 eleven counties,
and last year thirteen counties.
There are now on file with the Stati
Commissioner of Public Roads peti
tions from sixteen counties involving
a total expenditure by the State ol
$1,726,644.70 for 504.90 miles of road.
The State appropriation for this yes1t
is $150,000, so that only a fraction of
the work petitioned for can be done
this year. Labor and materials also
cost more, and there will be less to
show for the annual appropriation
than last year.
''The~ report of the commissioner is
illumined with inspiriting views of
the roads "before and after" the
stone was put on, and not a little ef
fort is made to advertise certain fa
vored quarries. As a whole the
report is conducive to the continued
expenditure of the public money in

Water is the great road destroyer,
and too much attention cannot be

be rounded sufficiently and made

travelway of the road a flow to the
storm ditches on the sides of the road.
The traveled surface should be kept
smooth and even by frequent scrapings,
o that the water from rainfalls will
flow over quickly. Depressions in the
road where the water gathers shoule
be filled up by all means.
