HOW BOERS PITCH THEIR LAAGERS.
Always Put Tents Between Parallel Lines
A. C. Hales. the Australian corre
Spondent who was captured by the
Boers and released by Presient Steyn,
writing froni Burghersdorp, says:
"Possibly it may interes ' English
men ad womntn, too, for ti:at inatter,
to know what a fighting hiager is like,
and, as I have seen half a dozen of
them from the eunmy's side of the
wall, a rough pen sketch may not be
amiss. In wat* times the Boer never
under any circurmstances makes his
laager in the open country if there
are any kopjes about. No matter how
secure he may fancy himself from at
tack, no matter if there is not: a foe
within fifty miles of him, the Blor
commander always pitches his laager
In a place of safety between two par
allel lines of hitis. so that an attack
cannot be made upon him, either front
or rear, without giving him an .iii
mense advantage over the attacking
force, even if the enemy is ten times
as strong in numbers. By this nieans
the Boers make the!r laagurs almost
impregnable. If they have a choie of
ground they pick a narrow ravine or
gully, with a line of hili:; front and
rear, covered wit ih sinaf!. rotky
bowiders and bushes. They drive their
wagons in between these hilis.
- "The women are placed in safety.
for It is a noticeable fact that very
large numbers of women have :ollow

have heard thmiu singing rou:ad the
camp fires in the starligir, but it was
hymns that they sang, not ribald
songs. I bave seen them kneeling by
the side of men in the moonlight, but
not in wantonness, but in mercy, and
many a man who wears the Bri:ish
uniform to-day can bear ame witness
that I speak the truth.
"The foot scouts take up their posi
lions among the rocks and shrubs on
the hills in front and rear of the
laager. Each s:-out has his rifle in
his hand, his pipe in hi.; teeth,. his
bandolier full of eartridg.s over his
shoulder and his scanty blanket un

glory, and he knows that on his acute
ness the lives of all may depend. He
knows that his comrades and the wo
men trust him, and lie values the trust
as dearly as Briksh soldiers ever did.
No matter how tired he may be, no
matter how famished, the Boer senti

Prof. Masso, of the Univ~ersity of

series of -interesting experiments for
the purpose of observirg the tempera
ture of the body during fastirg and

ed the efficacy of sujgar in raising the
temperature of an animal which had
fallen during a fast. Upon the ad
mninistration of sugar the temperature
rose rapidly during fifteen minutes
and in one or two hoturs reached its
maximum. After bread is given the
temperature will rise more slowly
than in the ease of sugar, owing to
the greater difficulty the animal has
in assimilating the food. Prof. Masso
says that with stugar he has succeededl
in retrring the vitality. of dlogs in a

The results of the two years' ex

Western Farmers Plow Under.
Out West, where the fertility of
ages has been stored up annually, the
farmers have had a good thing of it.
They have, in some cases, grown
crops year after year without making
any pretension whatever to use fer
tilizer of any sort, nor in any way
have they tried to put back in the soil
what they have annually taken from
Now most of these farmers are be
ginning to feel the effect of this rob
bery, and have at least found out that
the fertlity in-their land is exhausti
ble. These farmers should at once
plant crops for plowing under, for in
most cases their farms are too large to
be manured. If they would keep
their farms in perfect shape as to fer
tility, it can be done-if they do not
wait too long-by simply following
the lesson taught by nature, which is
resting the land and planting crops
on it suitable to be plowed under and
Improving Poor Land.
Four years ago I bought a farm in
Sullivan County that contained a ten
acre lot, which was very much run
down. Having only a small herd of
cattle I was not able to get the field
in shape by using manure, because I
wished to put this on the good land,
where I intended to raise the chief
crops. So the first summer I fallowed
the field, then plowed it in September
and sowed to rye. Then plowed un
der the rye and sowed buckwheat in
Jane, plowed under buckwheat in
August and sowed to rye in Septem
ber. I cut the rye the second year
and obtained fifty bushels which sold
I had sorwed t.o clover in the spring
at the rate of twelve quarts per acre,
plowed this under the following spring
and sowed to buckwheat. I cut this
crop of buckwheat, which yielded 200
bushels and brought $100. Not in
cilding labor, the expense was $32.81.
The rye and buckwheat yielded $130,
which I consider all gain, for the im
provement in the land will pay for
my labor.-Reginald C. Glenwood,

Pumpkins For IHens.
During the last winter the noonday

of cut bone three times a week, with

The best w~ay of feeding is to break

Thme flarm In Very Early Plowing.
Many farmers are very impatient toI
tart the plow in the spring. As soon
is the snow disappears and they find
ifew dry spots in the highway, the
low is brought out and started. The
oil being cold and wet, the upturned
arrow presents a smooth, glossy ap
earance, and if future heavy freezing
loes not occur it will bake hard and
rm, requiring several harrowings to
ut it into a proper condition for a
eed bed. Not only is this extra labor
equired, but the soil at plowing is so
oft that the horses at each step sink
Imost to the bottom of the furrow.
his is very injurious and most of
hese early plowers would not think ofj
lowing other stock upon the fields
~-hen in this condition. The acts of
lowing obliterates the foot marks
ud they imagine no harm is done,
ut they are greatly mistaken. No
rmer ever gained anything in the
nd by plowing his soil when not in a
roper condition. Perhaps there is
ome advantage in ma~*king out lands -
t a field that is naturally wet and t
eavy, as the furrows thus made act V
s surface drains, and if the land be ti
early level the water is drawn from o
ie surface soil to a distance of several tl
~et upon each side, and if it can be S
rained off at the end of furrows a u
sitive gain will be accomplished. it
Thme Wet Places. b
At this time of year and a little later t
e farmer can thoroughly estimate i
e condition of his farm as to soil G
oisture. Some of the land will dry oj
t at the time it should, while otber- b
ni will hold water and show it on tI
e surface till long after the landjim
ould be worked. It is, therefore, c<
e proper time to make a thorough tl
~amination of all the farm, if there is |w
y intention to put in drains. When ig
e land is partly covered with water a
e falls can be better estimated than 'c
any other time, and measurements
de for drainage at this time might vi
ye some very bad mistakes that oc- is
r when the plans for the drains areca
t made till the drying time in the s
1 of the year. ur
The wet places 'generally are only bn
lf productive, except in unusually c
y years. The water level is so near wi
e surface that the roots'-cannot get di
e depth they should, for it should1 ot
t be forgotten that even some of our
rface feeders really send down roots
ite deep, as per example, the corn
at, whose roots have been. fd Ica:
four feet under the surface. Now, if
the water level is permitted to re a
within a foot of the surface it is evi
dent that the root operations of almost
any of our field plants will be seri
ously interfered with.
If the water in these wet places be
somewhat stagnant, as it is likely to
be if the soil is of heavy clay nature,
the damage resulting from the pres
ence of this water will be greatly in
creased. Water that moves through
the soil is bad enough, 'but stagnant
water is far worse, for it becomes the
breeding place of many kinds of dis
ease, some of which are as yet un
knowu but make manifest their pres
ence by rotting off the roots of certain
plants. The argunents, therefore,
for paying more attention to the wet
spots should be allowed to have due
weight. Not only will the wet spots
themselves be benefited by draining,
but the land adjacent will also be im
The Moods ot the Bees.
The honey bee is, like almuost every
other living creature, subject to moods,
and sometimes much more irritable,
than atothers. In the midst of a good
honey flow, and on a bright and pleas
ant day, they do not go out of their
way to attack any one, and are even
so pleasant that they scarcely resen4
the opening of the hive and the chang
ing of frames. This is the time to
select for such work.
When the honey flow stops sud
denly, or in a cold or rainy day, when
they are obliged to stay in the hive, it
is best to keep away from them. They
are easily irritated and scarcely await
provocation before they declare war.
For the same reason, early morning
or the twilight hour ;,t night should
not be n''lized for trying to work
among the bees.
They also have a strong dislike to
having people among them who are in
a hurry and want to make rapid or
abrupt movements or shrill sounds.
One might walk leisurely through an
apiary, or sit down in it for a long
time, if quiet, and not receive a sting,
while i@ he tried to run through it he
would need to move faster than they
could fly to avoid them.
There are certain odors which they
dislike very much, though perhaps
none so much as that of perspiration.
A sweaty person or horse had best
keep at a considerable distance from
the hives, and the odor of blood is apt
to excite them. There are few flow
ers if any whose perfumes'they object
to, but some cheap perfumes in which
the alcohol is more noticeable than
the flower odor they do not like. They
do not like smoke, and a little makes
them cross, although more drives
them away or causes them to so fill
themselves with honey that they will
As regards the claim that they have
a dislike to black clothing, so much
that they will attack one so dressed,
while they will pass by one in white,
or even in colors, we do not think that
is quite proven. In fact, we think it
is largely a matter of custom with
them. If used to having been handledl

if bad roads are preferable, why should
we want roads at all?
We must have roads. That neces
