IMI'UKTAXT TO TENNESSEE.
Meeting of tlie IntcmtHtn Sanitary Live
Stock Hoard tit St. Louis.
Gov. Taylor hus appointed a num
ber of prominent Tennesseanfe a
delegate to attend the meeting of
the Interstate Sanitary Live Stock
lioards, which convenes in St. Louis
Dec. 2, Maury County being repre
sented by John M. Gray and S. N.
Warren, Live Stock Commissioner.
The Governor addressed to each ap
pointee the following letter:
"Early i December, 1897, the Sec
retary of Agriculture of the United
State's will fix the quarantine line
on account of Southern, or splenetic
fever, so as to prevent future out
breaks of fever due to cattle shipped
from the states now below the fever
line. This is of very great impor
tance to all the cattle breeders and
dealers in Tennessee, as an eilort
will doubtless bo made to place the
entire State of Tennessee below the
quarantine line, thus losing to thn
stockmen of Tennessee thousands of
dollars annually. A meeting of the
Interstate Association of Live Stock
Sanitary Boards has been called to
meet at the New Planters' House in
St. Louis, Mo., on Dec. 2, at 10
o'clock n. m., when the matter of
quarantine will be fully discussed
and such steps taken as will protect
the cattle interests of Tennessee.
Yon are hereby appointed a delpgate
to said meeting, and I urge you to he
present and assist other prominent
men who I have this day appointed
in protecting the interests of Ten
nessee." Poultry Yard.
Save the grittv buckwheat for the

spoils the flour for cake making.

Dairy hii1 Stork.
Don't breed Immature animals.
Some dark rainy day go into the
cow stable and see how dark it is,
and then locate several windows.
Be careful not to dry the heifers
in milk when stabling them for the
winter. Milk them clean, pamper
their appetites and be good to them.
If they will milk right through to
calving, all the better. A heifer
easily learns to dry off early and
will ever after remember the trick.
When mature she will be profitable
eleven months in the year, when
she might be kept at a loss if dry,
three to live months.
Laziness often resorts to very
Ingenious arguments to justify , it
self; and some lazy men expend
more energy In hunting excuses
than would be required to do their
work. We have heard men argue
that horses should not be groomed
in winter because grooming opened,
the pores.and the horse was more
sensitive to the cold. The reasons
for grooming the horse do not freeze
up. They are applicable in winter
as well as in summer. Filth on his
hide is unwholesome to the horse in
Early breeding of guilts check
their growth and produce small pigs.
The sow cannot grow but little and
at the same time develop a litter of
pigs. She should not be bred until
one year old. ,
If the hog is to fare well and make
a sure profit for his owner, it Is nec

dry, warm place to sleep in the win
ter. Brood sows should not be allowed
to run down in flesh while Buckling
their litters. By proper and careful
feeding they can be kept up in flesh.
Feed middlings and bran mixed, in
equal parts byi weight, made moist
with skim milk and kitchen slops.
Sour slop is not a healthful food for
pigs or hogs, at any age.
All grain fed to bogs should be
perfectly sound. Heated or mouldy
corn will cause intestinal worms and
bring on attack of diarrhoie.
Don't leave a quantity of manure
in the stable to foul the air and heat
it. Make the horse's surroundings
as comfortable as possible. He has
hardships enough at best.
Continual whipping never made a
horse good that was naturally bad,
and has spoiled many good horses.
An encouraging tone of voice will

Is he sweaty? Rub him. Is his
coat dry and stuck down? Loosen

horse, and see if you can afford It.
You can tike the frost oil the

take the bridles to the house when

All root and fruit pits should have
good drainage provided, if they are
not on a nattirall'' drained site.
In burning all weeds, trimmings
and other rubbish in and around the
berry patch, many insects and fungi
are happily disposed of.
Celery in process of blanching is
less likely to decay if the leaves are
exposed to the air and sunlight in
mild weather. Loss frequently oc
curs from too close covering.
Any time now when the shears are
sharp is a good time to prune grape
vines. In pruning remember that
fruit is borne on new canes only,
and each bud on this year's growth
will throw out a cane next season
that will produce from one to three
A mulch of manure on the ' rasp
berry patch is good for next season's
crop, but it should not be so heavy
near the plants as to furnish a har
bor for field mice, beneath which
they can down and eat the roots.
When vegetables are rather wet
when being stored, or appear to have
a tendeucy to rot a little, air-slaked
lime scattered among them will help
to dry oil the dampness and check
the rot. The lime must itself be
dry, and is best if recently slaked.
This treatment causes more or less
shrinkage, but this is better than
loss fr jm decay.
Canes which have borne one sea
son never bear again; hence the ne
cessity for keeping a supply of new
wood every year.
While a tree will stand almos
any amount of water, it cannot ex
ist if any water remains about its
roots. Good drainage is almost es
sential. Trim the grapes in the fall. Train
the vines so that they may be laid
down and covered with earth in
winter, raised and tied to the trellis
again In the spring. Vines one or
two years old will not bear, and
should be cut to two or three buds.
Never mind about the condition of
the moon when setting oat trees,
riant them right and care for them,
and they will do their best. It Is a
sad mistake to turn them out to
grass before they are weaned from
the nursery, or to forget that they
need cultivation just as much as
does corn or other vigorously grow

Costly poultry houses are not nec
essarily a part of the poultry busi
ness. More profit can be had from
the use of cheaper structures, and
the liens will be just as happy and
just as busy in them.
Sell off every cock which has no
special value, for they are of no use
to you now under the sun. More

Begin now to weed out the old
stock from the poultry, and the un
desirable young. A few good hens,
well cared for, will raise more chicks
next summer than if a large flock is
crowded together in the coops; and
wnai sense js nere in Keeping an
unprofitable chicken, anyhow?
VVhv should noultrv he pntnirlprpil
one of the luxuries to be reserved
for special occasions in many farm
ers' families? A nniinrl nt nnnltru
.can be produced as cheaply as a
pounu or oeet, mutton or porK, and
there is no reason why it should not
be an every day article of diet.
Scraps of meat should be given to
poultry twice a week. One cent a
pound is not too much to pay for
green bone, as a lot of meat clings to
the bone. Keep grit, cracked oys
ter shells and green food before them
all the time.
Lean meat will cause hens to
moult more speedily, and now is th
time for feeding it. A teasfoonful
of sulphur for a dozen fowls, mixed
with their feed and given twice a
week, will help them greatly
through the moulting period.
Do not neglect the liens in any
particul ir if you expect to get a full
supply of eggs. B1 sure to furninli
them juicy foods, such as cabbage,
lettuce, turnip greens and cooked
Irish potatoes in the winter.
