A man does not nee;) a very wide acquaintance with the condition of| the live stock industry of this coun try to know that a great many in ferior bull s are being used for breed ing purposes. Neither docs he need to be remarkably well versed in the principles which underlie success in the live stock business to know that these bulls are very poor animals from which to breed. If he has had experience or observation along this line he niU3t be aware not only that the creatures themselves are in ferior, but also that they will place the stamp of inferiority upon their offspring. As long as these inferior animals are kept for breeding, a better class of bulls will be crowded out. Not only this, but the defective bulls will bring out-and intensify the in feriority of a good deal of the dairy stock of the region in which they are kept. Many pretty fair cows, which would produce good calves if they were served by a valuable bull, will bring forth only a low grade of milking stock if served by one of .these inferior animals. Under like conditions the poorer class of cows ■will bring forth calves which are in ferior even to themselves. With this method of breeding stock that is now fair will soon be reduced to a lower grade, and that which is al ready inferior will become positively bad. Nothing but evil, and evil which will not be merely perpetuat ed, but intensified, as time goes on, can come from allowing cows to be served by inferior bulls. The inferiority of the low class bulls is due to one of two causes, neither of which should be allowed to exist. These animals were either infeiior in character or condition when they were calves, or else they have been reduced to inferiority by neglect or by improper feeding. Some were from poor stock and should have been sent to the butcher as soon as they could be made fit for veal. Others were small, or weak, or were so deficient in good qualities as to be wholly unfit to keep for breeding purposes. And there a great many that were prom ising calves and would have made pretty fair animals if they had been liberally fed and- properly cared for. A good many bull calves will be raised the coming Fall. Some farmers will be tempted to save a low grade of stock. They should remember that there are already too many inferior bulls which are doing not merely service but mischief in our herds. It will be greatly for their interest to decline to add to the number of these low class ani mals. Really good bulls are need ed, and many of the calves which give fair promise of answering this description when they reach ma turity should be raised. From the beginning of their lives they should receive the best of food and care, and an effort should be made to fully develop all the good qualities which they possess, and bring the animals to the highest standard of excellence which it is possible for them to at tain.—Jno.

' It is cruel and unmanly to allow a domestic animal or fowl to suffer for drink. They often drink too much when they can get it. A pailful at a time is enough for a horse or mule. A good example in all the walks and works of life is a better teacher than long speeches of glittering gen eralities which go into one ear and out of the other and can seldom be recalled when wanted and most needed. Prepare—if not already in proper condition—^sufficient shelter for your live stock. The animals will consume less feed and.be in better condition for work or fattening when .they have a warm stall or shelter. t f-.utbic Convenience*. It will save time in feeding anil earing for the horses during the Win ter if necessary conveniences are provided. 'Die horses can<begroom ed much more easily, while they will enjoy their night's rest much better, i:' they can be carefully cleaned when they are first brought to the stables. To do tins in the best manner good foot tubs for washing the feet and legs are nec essary. A supply of old rags that are good for nothing else should al so be on hand, and when the horses come in at night their feet and legs can be carefully washed and dried. If this work is done while the dirt is soft, it will be much easier than if delayed until the next morning when it will have become dry and hard. A good supply of curry combs and brushes with which to cleanse the hair and skin are essen tial. A large quantity of waste matter is thrown off through the pores of the skin and if these are allowed to become closed tip, the health of the animal i6 affected. Good bedding, properly supplied, adds much to the comfort of the horses and at the same time aids in keeping them clean. So it is an im portant item to have all of the bed ding dry. It will he best to lay in a supply and store it under shelter so as to have it on hand when needed. Good mangers for feeding hay, and tight, convenient boxes for feeding grain will lessen the waste. Closets should be arranged in which to hang the harness as hav ing it behind the horses in the sta bles is, to say the least, very injur ious. In arranging these closets care should always betaken to have them near by in order to save time. As the feeding must be done two or three times daily, and as on many farms the horses are harnessed once or twice every day, convenience in the arrangements is an important item. Every horse should have its place, with a halter and a conven ient place to tie to. Making the horses comfortable will lessen ma terially the quantity of feed neces sary to keep them in good condition. Xutt'H for Brekrrpera. In the Fall it is always best to unite all weak colonies and get all as strong as possible for Winter. At the close of the honey season every colony should be inspected to see if it is supplied with a laying queen. Generally at this time empty combs and section boxes should he removed and preparations be made for wintering. Black bees may be changed to Italians by removing the black queen and introducing an Italian queen in her place. At this season it is important that every colony contain a good fertile queen and that a fair sprink ling of brood is kept lip during the Fall months. Parents stocks that have swarmed must depend upon young queens alone for their existence. If any thing happens to them they cannot raise another. The quantity necessary to winter a hive depends largely upon the weather and the size of the colony, hut 30 pounds per colony is about the average quantity. Feeding for Winter stores should begin in good season, so as to let the bees have time to seal their stores over before cold weather sets in. Always feed just at night. At this time make sine that the colonies are strong. To do this fol low one or two maxims. One is to strengthen by early feeding, and the other is to unite the colonies. The Fountain Head ofMirength.

If y m would, read carefully what follows and you may see n way to d * it. The Press Claims Company devotes1 much at tention to pirent.-. It ha- handled thousands of applications for inventions, but it would like to hat-die thousands more There is plen ty of inventive talent at large in this country, needing nothing but encounrement to produce practical remits That encouragement the Press Claims Company proposes to give. XOT WO H.XKit AW IT MEEJV8. A patent strikes a person as an appallingly formidable thing. The idea is that an inventor must be a natural genius, like Edison or Bell: that he must devote years to delving in compli cated mechanical problems, and that he must spend a fortune on delicate experiments before he can get a new device to a patentable degree of perfection. This. delusion the company de sires to di»pel. It desires to get into the head of the public a clear comprehension of the a t that it is not the great, complex, and expensive inventions that bring the best returns to their authors, but the little, simple and cheap ones —the things that seem so absurdly trivial that the average citizen would feel somewhat ashamed of bringing them to the attention of the Patent Office. Edison sava that the profits he has received from th3 patents on all his marvelous invent ions have not been .sufficient to pay the cost of his experiments. But the man who conceived the idea of fastening a bit of rubber cord t<* a child's ball, so that it would come ba k to the hand when thrown, made a fortune out of the scheme. ■ he modern sewing machine i- a mi racle of ingenuity—the product of the toil of hundreds of busy brains through a hundred and fifty years, but the whole brilliant result rests upon putting the eye of the needle at the point iiiateud of at the other end. THE LITfLE TIIIXUN THE HOST | VALUABLE. Comparatively few people regard themselves as inventors, bat almost everybody has been struck, at one time or another, with ideas that . ee.ned a e ila'ed to reduce some of the lit le ' i fictions of life. Usually such ideas are din missed without further thought. "Way don t the railroad companies make Its < ar windows so that they can be slid up and down without breaking the passenger s back.-*? ’ exclaims a traveler. "If I were running the | road I would make them in such a way." "What was the man who made this sucepan I thinking of?" grumbles the cook "He never | had to work over the stove, or he would have ! known how it ought to have been fixed." "Hang such a collar button! growls the man i who is late for break ast. "If I were In the | business 1 d make buttons that wouldu t slip out. or uieak off, or gouge out the ba.k of my 1 neck. ’ And then the various sufferer^ forget about their grievan.es and begin to think of some thing el. e. If they would sit down at the next convenient opportunity, put their idea* about .ar windows, saucepans, and oilar buttons in to practical shape, and then apply for putents, they mignt find themselves as independently wealthy as the man who invented the iron um brella ring, or the one who patented the fifteen puzzle. A TEMPTIXG OFFER. To Induce people to keep track of their bright ideas and .-ee what there is in them, the Pre.v Ulainis Company has resolved to offer a prize. To the person who submits to it the simplest and most promising invention, from a commercial point cf view, the company will give twenty-five hundred dollars, cash, in addition to reianding the fees for securing the patent. It will also advertise the inven tion free of charge. This offer is subje t to the following condit Ions: Every competitor must obtain a patent for his invention through the company. He must first apply for a preliminary sear h. the cost of which will be five dollars, should this search show his invention to be unpatentable, he can withdraw without further expense. Otnerwi-e he will be expected to complete his application and take out a patent In the regular way. I he total expense, in ludlng Government ami bu reau fees, will be seventy dollars. For this, whether he secures the urlzc or not, the invent or will have a patent that ought to be a valua ble property to him The prize will be award ed by a jury consisting of three reputable pat ent attorneys of Washington. Intending com petitors should fill out the following blank , and torward it with their applications: "I submit the above described invention in compet&on for the Twenty five Hundred Dol lar Prize offered by the Press Claims Company. XO BLAXKS IX THIiCOKTIlOT This Is a competition of rather an unusual nature. It is common to oiler prizes for the best story, or picture, or architectural plan, all the competitors risking the loss of their labor and tlie su oess'ulone merely selling his for tin- amount o! the prize. But the Press Claims Company's offer is something entirely differ ent. Each person is a ked merely to help him self, and the one who helps himself to the best advantage is to be rewarded for doing It. The prize is only a stimulus to do something that would be well w..rth doing without it. The architect whose competitive plan for a club house on a certain corner Is not accepted lias spent Ills labor on something of very little use to him But the person who patents a simple and useful device in the Press Claims Compa ny's competition, need not worry If he fail to se< lire the prize, lie has a substantia] result to show for ills work—one that will command its value in the market at any time. ihepluin inuii who Uses any articles In his daily work might to kunw better how to ini prove it than the mechanl. al expert who stud ies it only from the theoretical point of view. Get rid of the idea that an improvement can be too simple to be worth patenting. The simpler the better. The person who best suc ceed.-. in combining simplicity and popularity, j will get the Press Claims Company's twenty five hundred dollars. The responsibility of the company may be judged from the fact that its sto. k is held by about three hundred of the leading newspa persof the United States. Address the Press Claims Company.
