could take any of the office boys and
they would make a decidedly better

What do you mean by making such
beastly figures? Explain!"
IerI beg your pardon, sir; but
it is a-three," said the trembling
"A three!" thundered the ' head
clerk. "Why, you fool.it lookB just

After that the hflair was dropped,

No monument not even a stone

once President of the United States.
His body lies buried in an obscure
little plot In Hollywood Cemetery,
Richmond, Va., and the only means
of Identifying it Is by the monument

The civil war was primarily re
sponsible for this neglect to honor
his memory. Tyler died In 1862,
and the . Virginia Legislature em
powered the Governor of the state
to erect a suitable monument. It
also requested that Tyler be burled
in Hollywood Cemetery, near the
grave of James Monroe. The first
request was complied with, but be
fore the Governor had time to erect
the memorial, the war interfered,
and in the excitement ' all thought
of it was forgotten, and future gen

the work that the war interrupted. .

There is evidently no over supply
of horses at the present time, and
there may be a shortage for years to
come because so few have been bred.
Nevertheless, but two kinds will be
profitable to raise good, light har

quality, and the highest class of
heavy draft horses. Judicious
breeding can not fail to bring good
The government formula for hog
cholera is as follows: Bicarbonate
of soda, two pounds; sodium eul-

give it is in the slops, twico a day,

Certain breeds or hogs are better
adapted for grazing than are others.

To Make Poultry Pay.
There is a great difference in the
management of poulty, and there is
also a great difference in the profits
derived therefrom. If we inveti
gate the management of those who
report such remarkable and almost
incredible egg production, we find
that the birds have been cared for
in a scientific way, the feed is com
posed of a combination of elements
found in the egg, and so proportion
ed as to correspond exactly with the
component parts of the egg. With
such a feed as this, and otherwise
properly cared for, the hen is al
most compelled to lay. But such
records are not made by persons
who allow their b'rds to shift for
themselves and find shelter in the
tree tops or an old shed. . Poultry,
to pay, must be cared for and pro
tected against the 6torms of winter.
To keep apples sound, laying them
on a dark, dry shelf is one method.
But when so kept many will be
found to lose their beauty and
shrivel; if packed in. boxes or bar
rels with dry sand, however, the
flavor and soundness are not only
preserved but their original beauty
and firmness are also maintained.
We do not recommend sawdust or
bran, as these are liable to get damp
and mouldy, and thus injure the
fruit. Pears may also be preserved
in this way, but as these undergo a
slight fermentation after becoming
ripe, the effect of which is Shown by
a kind of greasiness on the skin,
they should be left a week in the
storeroom before the method of pre
serving here pointed out is com

Feeding the Farm Crops.
The hauling of green corn, rape
and silage to cattle when the pas
tures were short returned a fair
profit, and mixed grasses were pre
ferred by cattle to timothy and clo
ver. There is less cost in fattening
cattle than in raising them, but also
less fertility to the soil. Corn en
silage and meal was not deemed as
safe as when a pound of cut straw
was mixed with three pounds of en
silage. While it pays to purchase
grain and linseed menl for feeding
purposes the more of the food that
can be grown on the farm and fed
to cattle the better, as there is al
ways cost in hauling to the farm,
while the use of farm products per
mits the saving of foods that would
be wasted or find no market. Sheep
serve to assist in consuming por
tions of the home-grown foods that
might not be utilized by cattle.
Cattle-feeding is a business which
should induce the farmer to grow a
greater variety of crops, as a pro
tection against the loss of a depend
ent crop from drought, and also to
grow the cheaper ioods, such as en
silage, which supplies tho succulent
foods after the animals are removed
from the pasture. The results of the
experiments mentioned should be
of service to those farmers who are
interested In better breeds and the
production of beef at the lowest
Work For the Month.
Another year has rolled around,
aid in this, the last month of it, the
principal work which should engage
the attention of the farmer, ia clos
ing up the out door work on the
farm. Whilst our mild winters
often make it practicable to do
much work in the land, even in
December, yet it is never safe to
rely upon doing this, as if we are to
have any severe weather, it usually
sets in in December and runs
through January. It is wiso, there
fore, to devote one's energies to clos
ing up work already commenced
and to making snug and comfort
able all the live stock about the
place and to lay in an abundance of
feed of all kinds handy for use, so
that if wintry weather should set in,
all will be in readiness for it. A
further season for adopting this
course is the unreliability of farm
labor during this month. The ap
proach of the Chrismas holidays is
usually the signal for labor to be
come suddenly very independent
and careless of orders, and it is no
uncommon thing for a farmer to
find himself without help of any
kind on the place long before the
month expires; and it is very prob
lematical when a "darkey" will re
turn to work -after he has once
struck Christmas. The only way to
become about as independent as the
"help" is to make the best of the
first ten days of the month in laying
in supplies for the stock and in
finishing up work already started.
The last half of the month can then
be faced with complacency, whether
"help" is on hand or enjoying4 it
self in keeping Christmas. South

A great many people are led to
put off the beginning of Standard
bred poulty breeding because they
think it hard to breed standard re
quirements, and that "fancy" fowls
are not as good at those more plain
After the experience of a good
many years the writer has reason to
believe that all that is necessary to
succeed in having standard-bred
chickens and good egg layers at the
same time is a moderate degree of
patience in breeding up a flock.
Anyone who cares for his flock and
gives them personal attention soon
comes to know the best layers, and
these will be selected for breeders,
standard points being a minor con
sideration at the beginning, where
the breeder is after utility before
Gradually the best layers among
those coming pretty close to stand
ard requirements may be selected
and all ttie time an improvement in
both beauty and utility will be go
This does give the breeder a repu
tation as a poultry fancier quite as
soon as he could make it by breed
ing for standard specimens first, last
and all the time, but once he has
established a flock that lays well
and at the same time looks well
from a fancier's point of view, he
will find that the market for his
birds is unlimited at a price that
will be perfectly satisfactory.
Not everyone can breed birds that
sell for $50 or more, but it is com
paratively easy to breed up a flock
that will command at least ten
times the market price and which
will be good as egg producers also.
This is the reward that all who
breed good poultry may look for
ward to in full confidence, and as
one of the reasons why standard
bred poultry should be bred. It
costs no more to grow a $5 chicken
than it does a B-cent one, and it is
worth while to try for the higher
price. If one out of ten comes up to
the Btandard and all the others
must be Bold at market, price the
one will sell for as much as the oth
This is the experience of every
one who ever began to breed and
made earnest effort to improve his
flock every year, and to give it the
best possible care all the time

The Preacher's Salary.
If there is one thing in which
churches, as a rule, need to be more
careful,it is in this matter of preach

themselves and their minister is no
contract at all. They promise htm

whatever is convenient. The gas
