"We feel jolly," said Glynde.
"Very jolly," said Hilgay.
Instinctively they both made a

Students of the crustacea 'zften find
the cod a useful assistaz~t collector.
Thus the circular craby'seems to be a

Another himting ground 'of the'
naturalist is' the sailing ship which

way Dr. Olhark has been able to add
a tiny (Chilean crab to the Cornish

Vegetablo Milk.
'A cheap substitute for the milch
cow has been discovered by -the Jap
anese in the form of a tiny bean,
states the Farmers' Home Journal.
The Juice, which is extracted by a
specfal process from the bean, Is said
to be an excellent vegetable milk, the
properties of which render It highly
suitable for use in tropical countries.
The preparation is obtained from the
Soja bean, which is a popular article
of food among the poorer classes of
Chinese and Japanese. In making
the vegetable milk the beans are first

For Young Horses.
An experienced breeder has discov
ered that equal parts of ground oats
and corn make an excellent ration for
young horses. Others add bran to
make a well balanced ration to pro
duce a symmetrical growth of bone,
muscle and fat in young horses. The
bran is rich in protein and phospho
rus, which b,uild up bone and muscu
lar development, and being mildly ca
thartic prevents constipation. Clover
hay and alfalfa are excellent rough
age for young horses, as they are rich
in the elements of bone and muscle
growth. Commercial horses now
must have heavy bone as a founda
tion of stable endurance, and breed
ers should develop their young horses
on those rations which will promote
the growth of bone, the elements of
which are contained in oats, bran, alf
alfa and clover.-Indiana Farmer.
Bestraining a Horse.
An old horseman gave me his way
of restraining a fractious horse which
answers the purpose in good shape.
It is a strap from the foreleg a little
above the knee to the halter and fast
ened with buckles at each end. The
strap Is two feet long or about right
to hold the head nearly level. The
contivance makes unruly action very
difficult and unpleasant for the horse,
and he finally learns to behave with
out Its aid.-I. A. L., Middlesex Coun
ty, Connecticut.
A Shortage in the Pig Crop.
The American Swineherd says:
"From the general tenor of letters re
ceived from breeders in the different
parts of the country we are led~ to be
lieve that the pig crop will be demon
strated a short one. The fact is we
have been getting into this condition
for eighteen months or more. High
priced grain and pork below a- com
parative .price of grain caused people
to market their hogs close and to save
fewer sows. As one.man said in the
office It Is very hard to convince a
farmer, when he can get seventy
cents cash a bushel for his corn at
his town elevator, that it was not his
duty to cash it In there instead of
feeding it to shogs or any other ani
mals. The-shortage Is showing In
the number of hogs that are bel'ng
marketed, as they are below previous
ye'ars, while the number of consumers
are constantly Increasing."
Better Shelter; Less Feed.
When one of those northwesters
comes up and the wind rages and
snow flies the stock appreciate a good
shelter. We often see stock out in
all kinds of weather, shivering and
huddled together; their. owners are
often very saving of feed, very care
ful to make both ends meet, on the
farm as it were, yet they do not think
how each minute their stock is un
sheltered in such weather, the extra
feed or fat they are consuming to
generate that heat, which passes off
so readily under such conditions.
We have noted in the fattening ofI
hogs how In a cold spell of weather
their appetites Increased with the
cold. While they consumed consider
ably more feed the gain In fat was
slow. This was accounted for by the
fact that the food goes to produce
heat to a certain extent; the colder
the more heat must be produced,
hence taking more feed; so It is easily
seen while feed Is so high it is essen-1
tial to have good shelter.-Omer R.
Abraham, In the Indiana Farmer.
Quality of Milk.
A great many persons have held
the mistaken notion that with certain
kinds of feeding the cow will increase
the per cent. of butter fat. An Eng
lish dairyman after much experience
"The quality of the milk yielded
by a cow depends more upon the indi
viduality of the cow than upon any
other factor, and that a cow is not
merely a machine into which one can
put a certain amount of food of
known composition with the sure
knowledge that one will get milk of
equally known composition. A cow
Is a machine certainly, but one whose,
idiosyncrasies, as expressed in the
quality of the milk she produces, can
only be ascertained by actual testing.
Hence the need for testing cows for
the quality as well as the ,quantity of
their milk is brought out.' By such a
proceeding ind by breeding only from
those cows which give milk rich in
fat, the dairy herds of this country
could undoubtedly be greatly im
proved, but our methods are altogeth
er too haphazard for such an ideal
ever to be realized. In tme mean
tim-e, and so long as a legal limit for
milk of three per cent. of fat eyists
we must be content with showing
that a large number of individual
cows do undobutedly fall below that
limit in the course of every year,
while with equal certainty the mixed
milkof many herds undoubtedly does
so, though with less frequency than
that of individuals. The relative fre
quency with which the herds do so
will depend on the number of such in
dividual offenders, and the only safe
way to avoid the rist of one's milk
falling below the limit of three per
cent., of butterfat is to find out and
get rid of the worst offenders."
A Talk on Turkeys.
Now is the time to feed the early
hatched turkeys liberally and have
them ready for the Thanksgiving
market. It rarely pays to hold them
for the holiday market. The Thanks
giving market is nearly always the
best. And turkeys take on fat better
now than they will later when cold,
snowy weather comes. Corn is the
nationalo fattening grain for the na
tional birds. and the most available
feed with most of us. We like to
give them all the corn they will eat
these days for their evening ration,
and oats soaked over night in water
for the morning meal. Another thing
very essential whil- !eding turkeys
heavily is coarse sharp grit. And
plenty of milk to drink is an aid in
fattening turkeys. How their bodies
plump up after a few weeks of good
feeding. It won't do to rush them off
to market regardless of flesh. The
returns from a leanolot of birds are
sure to be discouraging. When well
fattened their plumage is smooth and
glossy. The experienced buyer can
tell by the appearance of the plumage'
whether they are well fattened or not.
In England, I am told, they confine
turkeys during the fattening period
with good results. We have tried
shutting them upwhile fattening with
pqor success. They are such liberty
loving birds, in our experience, it
won't do to confine them very long
at any time in their lives. /
Don't you think it will pfy to keep
enough turkey hens so you will have
eggs to spare your friends and neigh
bors? They will willingly pay you a
good price. I/'have a neighbor who
keeps a dozen turkey hens and she
sells all the eggs to her neighbors at
$1 a setting; She considers this the
surest way 'of getting money out of
turkeys. One nice thing about sell
ing turkey eggs for hatching is that
it is no trouble to sell thgm near
home. This 'lady I have been telling
you about gets orders for her eggs
over the 'phone, and they are all spo
ken for long before the laying season.
One dollar for eleven eggs doesn't
seem like a very big price, bixt it
amounts to a neat little sum at the
end of the season, and this party is at
no expense to sell her eggs. Whether
we sell the eggs or set them ourselves
we should be careful in selecting
breeding birds and holding onto them.
Selling off older hens we know to
be good layers and breeders and keep
ing young ones for breeding is a mis
take. Up to their fifth year turkeys
are profitable as breeders. And they
are not fully mature until two years
old, and at three years a hen is at her
best.-Fannie M. Wood, in the In
diana Farmer.
Potash Required With Lime.
Many farmers have an idea that
lime will unlock the stores of insolu
ble potash in the soil and make it
available for plant food. But when
you ask for their reasons you will
find them very uncertain and unable
to substantiate their opinions either
with the results of experiment station
work or practical experiments on their
own farms. Properly used lime is
one of the most valuable aids to suc
essful farming, but when used with
out fertilizer it will impoverish the
soil, as shown by the old English pro
verb: "Lime without manure will
make the farm and the farmer poor."
There is nothing gained by making
extravagant claims for the use of
lime, and that it makes any of the
potash in the soil a,vailable is very
doubtful and not supported by experi
ments so far as I can learn. In fact
my experience is that an application
of potash will give much better re
sults with lime than without it, which
would not be the case if the lime
made any -quantity of potash avail
able. In addition to its eff'ect in
sweetening the soil, all four mate
rials, life, nitrogen, phosphoric acid
and potash are necessary for plant
growth. No one element will answer
the purpose without the other, but
all are necessary to obtain the best
results. An experiment conducted
with fertilizers at the Ohio experi
ment station shows the increased
yield of clover in the hay crop in a ro
tation of corn, oats, wheat, clover and
timothy, the lime being applied to
the corn crop. Acid phosphate and
lime gave anincreaseof 1847 pounds;
acid phosphate, potash and lime gave
an increase of 2521 pounds, a gain of
674 pounds for the use of potash with
the lime and phosphoric acid, and
this in a soil that the authorities say
is very deficient in phosphoric acid.
and lime and supposed to have a fair
amount of potash. The weight of
evidence goes to show that the use of
potash and lime should go hand in
hand. Still the farmer should not
follow any experiment blindly. but
rather test his soil for himself and
find out the properties of lime, p -
phoic acid, nitrogen and poash,
which will give the best re'sults na his
own farm, and use the results gf the
experiment stations simply as a guide.
