A CHILD IXA CISTKKX. Last Tuesday evening a little child of Mr. and Mrs'. Preston Uutton, ibont two years of age, was playing around and over the top of the cistern when by some means a portion of the cover ing, which was thought to be perfectly nafo, gave way, letting the little one down on tli inside and into the water. Another child about four years old, which was also playing there, ran into the house and told Mrs. Uutton, who immediately gave J ho alarm and ef forts were begun to reseue the little one from death's grasp. Mrs. Donald, a neighbor, secured a hoop and attach ed it to a rope, and when the drown ing child came to the surface of tho water she slipped the hoop over its body and thus held its head out of t!ii water tor a short time, but it 6oon broke away and went down again. She again caught it when it came up ami by this time two men who hap pened "to bo passing were hailed and soon succeeded in getting the child out of its perilous position. It was very nearly drowned, however, and close attention with careful nursing were nece-sarv t'i resuscitate it. The children had been playing in a like manner about the cistern hun dreds of times before, and the cover ing was thought to be perfectly safe. Mr. Button was absent in tho territory on a hunting expedition at the time. riTTSBCKG, COIX'BIEUS & FT. SMITH.

Many farmers would build a silo were it not that they believed it would tutu too much brain' work and expense for the return they would get. My silo cost me but a very little money. I look a comer in my barn twelve reel nnr lionnlpil it tin and down with straight-edged stuff, two thicknesf.es, with tar paper between, anu ptii a lisrht coat of cement on tho bottom, a coat that costs but little. This work I did mvself. I expected an awful job in rnttiiiff and fillinir. but was disap pointed, as I found that I could put iu twenty tons per day w!th the help of four men. I have a sweeu power and got No. 13 Ross cutler, and cut the fodder into Inch pieces. Ihis i oetieve is just as well as to cut it shorter. Tim stock eat it readilv Slid much time is saved over the fiue-cutting process. . 1 . a I put in the corn at tnree aiucreui times, so it had time to settle. The variety of com most desirable wan a ntiestion with me. hut I soon decided that a varietv not prolific in grain was not good for ensilage. So I planted a good productive corn that grows seven or eight feet' high. This fall it produced about lorty bushels of shelled corn to tho acre, aud when cut on glazing was quite green. its yieia of forage is largo and the stalk are not too bulky. My si!o holds 1,080 cu bic feet, and I grew enough corn to fill it on 1G5 rods of land. 1 believe we should get a large percentage of grain on the corn, for it will not pay to feed ensilage if large bills of feed from outside have to accompany it. But if the entire plant can be preserved in nn finradv nrocess it is a creat advan tage to the farmer and a saving of TUT WATKR OTTKKN POAP. money, it costs nine rem to husk and grind one bush el of com, besides the time takinc it to the mill- Then the fodder is badly hort ia the weather onentimes. A retired shoe dealer, whom mer- pnarv rnnaiderations no lonzcr deter i mm irivin? advice as to nroDer care of ho, 8ys: A pair of shoes made of good leather will last much lougeru properly cared for than wheu neg-ft-A. ' When allocs are oulr blackeJ the leather soon becomes hard a nd dry, a aH & the best-fitting pair, win oeuuconuoi i- able and here and there litllo cracks will appear which will soon become chasms. Every week or two the black ing should be wiped off with a damp cloth, the shoes should be allowed to dry and then bo rubbed with tho best harness oil. Every part including the sole seams, should be oiled and the oil given a chance to soak in. The tough est leather can be made soft in this way, and good leather will alter this treatment, leel like kid. The shoo will wear three times as long and be much morn comfortable.
