It is also a good plan to board np the f ront of the stock wlth wlde doora on a level wlth thelr heads, to be ralsed when necessary, and boarda to drop at the f eedlng places. In this way tbe rooma where the stock Is tled can be closed at nlght, and will be found to be teveral degrees warmer ln the mornlng than the rest of the barn. I'roper ventllatlon ehould always be pro- vlded. Keep the cattle tn doora as much as posslblo during very cold weather, Have water as near to the barn as posslble, and al ways have It In a sheltered place, so that the stock need not bo needlossly expoaed whlle drlnking. When a well Is near the barn, a-sU always should be, tt Is well to carry water to the stock on very stormy days, when tt can be done wlthout a great Incon- yenlence. It will prevent much ezposure. Strange aa It may seem, some farmers still perslst In ferding cattle tn the barnyard on the coldcat days. Don't do It. Itlswasting fodder, in a double eense, ehrlnklng your oatlle, and aubjectlng them to needless suf fering. They are just as eensitlvo to tbe oold as you are. Keep the doors shut In oold weather. I know of farmers who have good, tlght, warm barns, who keep the doors open for hours at a time in the coldest v.W.icr. They areopened in the early morn lng to admit the llght, (so that a cent'a worth of kerosene may be saved ln two or three days), and are keptopen needlessly through out the day. The alr ontaide of a tlght barn on a cold day is much colder than It is lnstde, and the open doors admit thlsc old alr, and lower the lemperature lnslde of the barn. Test this matter wlth a therinotneter, and lf jou have any regard foryour stcck or wlsh to be economlcal wlth your fodder, you will keep tbe doors closed, uoless they ad mit the Bunlight and tend to warm the In sldo alr. Provide good warm quarters for the fowl,. Give warm food and all they will eat. Where whoto graln Is fed, warm It, and not allow them to fill their crops with an icy cold substance which will take mnch warmth from tbelr bodies. Glve warm drink and plenty of it. Many persons have r.o idea of the araount of drink that they need. Glve them a chance to sun themselves in pleasant weather, so that they may get a thorongh warmlng. Just watch them and eee how tbey will enjoy it. Fowls treated ln this way will be likely to be of some profit, aud ln many cases where they aro unprofitable, It is simply because they are neglected and allowed to sutton Pro vide plenty of good dry f uel for your fires, and Be to It that it Is well housed. It is astonlshlng that some farmers will neglect this matter, and are forever cursed with green wood, which has, porhaps, to be dug out of the snow. If any such chanco to read this, I would urge them to do better in the f nture. Turn over the leaf now. Get some dry wood to begiu witb, and then hard wood during the' winter so that there may be a year's supply ahead. Then put tt under cover. Do these thlnga and your women folks will rise up and call you blessed.' " One of tho leading dailies, speaking of Dr. Loring's hostility to the sugar experi- inents, recently remarked tbat tbe doctor lost the chance of hls life ln not allying hlraself with them, and riding into popular- tty on the wave of their success. The wily doctor has evidcntly seen the point, and Mr. Foore's article shows how he is trylng to turn bimself. The money spent by Gen. Lo Duc was " literally thrown away," but Dr. Loring'n " happy Idea " of offering pre mlums to manufacturers has brought suc cess I This is quite the most impudent and heeky thing done yet by the redoubtable doctor. Tbe department ezperimenta were " costly f allure," but the doctor'e premlums have had the tffect to stimulate Professora Scoville and Weber of the Illlnols State In- dustrial Unlversity to " solve the problem." This is Mr. I'oore's statemeut, but evldently he, in making it, la merely the inouth-piece of tbe commissioner. Now let the reader see how plain a tale will overtbrow thia tis sue of lies, for it Is no less. Two years after the saccharine value of sorgbum as a sugarmaklng plant had been demonstrated by the department chemist under Gen. Le Duc'a administratlon, the Ulinois Industrial Unlversity undertook a 8oties of ezperimeuta to test to accuracy of that work, and the two professora named, following carefully the methods of the de partment, reached Identical results. These profeasorB, eipcrlmentlng at tbe expense of the state of Illinois, made some improve ments, or supposed improvements, in the details of the process and patented them in thelr own name, in consequence of which tbey lost their posltlons about a year ago. Tbe past aeason they have been at work making sugar and molasses from Borghum, and have met wlth the eame success, on a stnaller scale, as that which attended the Kio Grande company in New Jersey to wbich we have referred, but to which Mr. I'oore does not refer to at all. Why does he not ? Plalnly because the Hio Grande company avowedly worked upon the system established by the eiperlments under Gen Le Duc'a administratlon, whlle tbe Illlnols results can be cunnlngly made to appear as the consequence of independent and more successful work by otber chemists, stimu lated by the premiums offered by Dr. Lorlng. llut how about those premiums V The last congress approprlated some $25,000 to be used for contlnulng the ezperimenta of the department; but Dr. Loriog, in his usual top-lof ty way, annulled this law of congress, refused to coutiuue the eiperimenls, and offered the approprlatlon In theform of pre miums to private manufacturers. It has turned out, of course, tbat tho doctor had no power to do this, and hls premiums cannot be pald eicept by a special act of congreas which he Is not likely to get. As to tbe ei perlments ot the Illinois professora being "atimulated " by these premiums, it Is only necessary to add that they were all under taken and finished before the premiums were offered, and they do not pretend that tbelr process dlffer In any easentlal partieu lar from those publisbed by the department before their eiperlments were undertaken Dresslng Poultry. There are two ways of dreaslng poultry for market dry picked and scalded. Fowls dressed in tbe former way in all cases bring the higbest prices. It should be the alm of every farmer, ln disposlng of bls poultry, to sblp it iu as good condition as possible ln order to catch the eye of the butcber or grocer, and secure a ready sale. Greater sklll Is required to dry pick poultry than most people imaglme, in order that the " bird " may look plump and hand' some. To do this work properly or with any degree of satisfactlon, the fowls should be plucked when warm that ia imme diately after they are kllled as, if allowed to get cold before stripping the featb ers, you are very apt to tear the tlesh. Commence by plucklng the wlng and tail feathers, then tho back, from head to tail I'luck tue leatners tromthe"craw cross- wlse ; stomach and breast feathers should be plucked downward that is, from the legs to the head. In dressing poultry by this method you get a double advantage of those dressed by tbe hot-water process, aa you can aave all tbe feathers, being careful to keep separate the tail and wlng feathers ; and where many are dressed, the sale of feathers amount to qulte an item of profit. Dressing poultry by the scaldlng process is by no means a good and profitable one, as it depreciates the value of the birds, they look' ing anything but dainty, and do what you will, they will never look entlcing to the buyer ; moreover, you lose the value of the feathers. i'oullry Yard. lllnts for Cold Weather. Under the above tltlo a wrlter lu the Ilomt Farm calla attentlon to tbe following mattera which some of our roadera may thank us for raminding them of at this time. The wrlter Bays : 11 See to it that the barns and stables are made aa warm aa posslble. Stop up all of tbe cracks witb battens or abiugles. It is better to have the walls well shiogled or clapboarded, but good batteus will answer very well for a time. Open cracks admit a great amount of cold, and cold barns cause stock to consume an extra amount ot fodder or to shrluk, heuce there is a waate ol fodder or a loas on the stock, IMake the walls as tlght as posslble, aud ... .. ... . when tt will eiolude the cold alr, bauktng Fruit Glace or Candled Frult. Make a syrup of a cup of water, a cup of granulated sugar, and the juice of one lemon. lioll one-half hour, never stlrring, tn a little porcelaln-lined kettle. Put a little of the syrup into a saucer of cold water, to see lf It is hard and brittle. If so, pour all the syrup into a small dish and set it in a pan of boil- lng water to keep It liquid. Dlp into it cherries, grapes, buncbes of currants, slices of citron or any other fruit, not forgetting oranges, divlded into thelr natural sections, and English walnuts. Coat them thorough- ly wlth the syrup, and place them on a but- tered paper or dish to barden the glace. Any frult tbat has not a stem should be dipped in the hot syrup by means of skewer, in order to save the flngers, and cover the frult very completely. Hipe peacbes are very nlce thus lced, as well as plums and plneapple. Thia makes a pretty and cheap dessert, and takes only a short time to prepare. Aunt Adclu. Storinq Fiiuit. Those who have been ln tbe loose practlca of storlng thelr wluter frult ln cellars iu whlch mlscellaneous gar den vegetablea are placed, should adopt as soon as possible the iiuprovement of making for the frult a separa'e apartmeut, which to contain nothlug else. Iu some tnstancea thia may be effected by simply runnlng alngle brlck wall elght inchea thick across the cellar, and hangiug the wlndowa so aa to allow easy ventllatlon. If the bottoin too wet, make a floor of water-liuie cetneut.

Ilefore long Pamela had many euiplojers, aud the village was rife with Buspicion aa to the why and wherefore, but never wai a girl prouder ot herself than waa Pamela when she lald tlowu upou the counter of a dry goods store tbe tuouey for her coveted cloak ; hard-earned mouey, but all her very own not a cent of it coaxed out of any man alive.

Hewasln evidentdistressof mind and hls dressing-gown needed mending sadiy. He looked at Miss Crump for a moment and tben requested her to walk into his study. lt waa a dusty place, wlth a good deal of man uscrlpt lying about; and the shrleks ot weeping chlldren were heard ln the di-tance. "May I ask what I can do for you. tnadam ?" lnqulred the gentleman, motion ing to a seat. " lou wrote to me," said l'amela. " Miss Crump, lnundrofs."

Two hours afterwards the master was calmly wrltlng in his study. and the chll dren, washed and dressed, were Iistenlng to the stories l'amela told them as she rubbed away at the washboard. Ihe bonsekeeper bad been dumped upon a bed in a small bed-room on the lower floor to Bleep off her intoxication, and potatoes were bolliug and a couple of chlckens roastlng for the famlly dinner, Meanwhile, Mr. Crump, having some 1m portant docnmenta to inspect, had come nome unexpectediy, ana, entering tne bouse, had found it empty, and in the Bittlne-room eame upon a sight which petrlfied him with horror.

Whou Pamela opened the door and eame in, she saw her father aud knew that he kuew all. Pamela, come here," he said. " How long has this been going on ? " " smce uclober, pa," tho glrl answered.

" Pa," she said, " lt was not for spite ; it was for need. I suffered so much mortlfica tion, not only from being sbabby, but hav ing to beg. If there is anything ln good blood, as you imnK tnere ls, perhaps tbat made it hard to beg from even you. I was happier earulng what I needed. Would you like to be a beggar, pa ? " " lou ve done very wrong, l'amela," aald her father. Then he paused, and added : " You shall tell me what allowance you ueed ior your ciotnes, ana i will let you have lt monthly. Now give me those cards." He burnt them in the fire when she had handed them to him, and hurried away to get his tea, and no more waa said. The Crunjpi were not creat talkers. Bui Pamela is not sorry for what she dld to this day. As for Mr. Bothwell, he re joices ; forotherwise, perhaps, he might, be ing a shy man, never have met Pamela Crump, who is to marry him before long, Other people may blame her for her " esca pade," or call her " odd," or spiteful; he un derstands her, and admires her all the more.

A long processlon of men and women passes ln f ront of the desk of William Blake, the superintendent of out-door poor, every day. As a tail, broad-shouldered man reached the space in front of the desk one mornlng a day or two ago, he lald down four silver dollars and walked away without saylng anything. The superintendent took tbem up and dropped them into a box. An hour later a demure little woman eame in titnidly, and when she presented herself the four silver dollars were placed in ber out stretched hand. With a nod of acknowl- edgment, but without speaking, she went out. " This is a curious phase of life," said Mr. IllaTie. " The man who left the money and the woman to whom I gave lt aro hus- band and wlle, but they do not live together. I am a medlator between them." " How is this brought about?" asked the reporter.

" How is this amount of the alimony tiied?" "1 find out how much bls weekly earnlngs are and tell him he must set aside (a certain proportion of them." " What is done lf the man refuses V" " He ls told that lt is mnch better for him to pay the money through me than to have the case go before a judge. To have the case tried would cost money. The most ignorant man soon sees that ho would tose ln the end by refusing to make tbe agreement. Persuasion haa much more to do with this class of men, some of whom appear to be merely animal in their nature, thau you would tblnk." "Have you any legal authority?" "No. But they know that I can take steps to have the law en forced." " Dj husband and wife often come together againV" "I take every opportunity to induce tbem to bocome reconciled to each other ; aomellmes I succeed. A few weeks ago I Induced a man and wife to live together again who separated ln 1872. They were both moral and intelll gent. When the husband eame I told him tbat there were differences in every famiiy and that it would be more economlcal lf he and bls wife should agree to travel the same road again, and that both wonld be happier, So one day he Bays, ' Tell Mary I'll talk lt over with her.' The wife waa willing they always are and I arranged a meetiug to take place at my house. They met, and both cried llke chlldren. It was so toucbing I fled to auother room. Well, it endeJ by thelr going away hand in hand, smiling and happy. A week ago I re ceived an invitatioa to vlsit them, which I did. I found them living as suugly and contentedly as if the cricket had always chlrped merrily on their hearth. Here is another romance that didn't end so well. A woman eame to me and complained that her husband would not provide for her, but spent hls money for drink. She was as fiue-looking a woman as you would see in a day's journey. The husband admltted that be spent his money, but be said he didn't want all of hls wife'a people quartered ln his house aa they wern. I am keepiug her whole famlly,' said be. 1 1 didn't marry the whole famiiy.' But after several talks he said he would have a meetlng wlth hla wife. lt was arranged that she could come for her allowance at the eame bour he called to teave it. They went home together. But at the end of two yeara the husband eame here a total wreck, and had to be sent to the almshouse. His appetlte for drink had been too strong for bim, he said, and be laid tbe blame on his wife's relatives. I don't know what became of hia bandsome wife. Another case was that of a husband and wife who were separated by the dlsso lute habits of the husband. The wife said that her husband was all the time trylng to steal her child from her. The chlld was beautiful. I told her to let him bave the child, and it might induce him to go home with it. Sure enough, when he became sober he went home with the chlld in bis arms and promised that he would give up bls 1 cups.' He kept bls promise. Not long ago there was another case in whlch the child was lustrumental inbringing its father and mother together again. Through some mistake, the wife eame for ber allowance just as the husband was banding it to me at tne desk. She waa carrying a baby in ber arms. When the husband saw her he brushed a tear from his eyes with hls sleeve aod taking the chlld from ber arms klssed it. Coming up to me he said, ' Would you mind, Mr. Blake, if I pay the money to my wife herself after this 1 ' ' You bad better go home and live witb her,' said t. Well, 1 believe I will,' he replled.
