A well-known agriculturist at out state college said recently: "The shortest cut for a farmer to become successful is to use both intellectual and physical strength. A somewhat common practice with farmers is to use only their physical strength. The time is here when without a change they cannot be successful." These are true words, and even in the construction and use of the most simple implements of the farm we Unil them applicable. Let us take F.G 1 the ordinary plnnk drag or flont, foi example. The man who Is funning by physical strength alone can see no science in dragging, and when he goes to construct a clod crusher will make the kind he imagines will do the most work by reason of its weight, clumsiness and rudeness ot detail. Taking the wooden frame of an old pin harrow, he pins or spikes on a rough slab an unshapely plank and crooked scantling, and has a drag which looks like Fig. 1. With this he goes in to "do up" the clods and firm the seed bed, and after going over the ground at least once more than would be necessary with a good implement, and after corresponding tax on his ow» and horses' physical endurance, succeed* —in a way "that will do." Fi«..2 On the other hand, the intellectual farmer who looks for natural philos ophy in even such a simple affair as a land drag, will take three or four good planks or boards of the required size, lap them neatly over each ether at the edges, bolt or spike a couple of pieces of notched scantling on top, put on an old mower seat for convenience, and a sectional view of his scientific drag looks like Fig. I. By reason of the rational shape of this drag and its facility of use, he will be enabled to do twice as much and more satisfactory work with about one-third the call on himself and team for physical strength. In making a drag it must be remem bered that if four two-inch planks, say eight inches wide, are used the B Fio.3 drag needs to be made shorter, as regards length of the planks, than if three one-inch boards each six inches wide are used, and also that on many lauds a short and heavy drag is pref erable to a longer and correspond ingly lighter one. There are also dif ferent ways of lappiug the planks or boards so as to get best results en the land to be smoothed or to suit the preference of the maker. In Fig. 8 are given sectional views of four different methods. Section A has three four-inch slanted boards on front and rear and as many four inch, or two six-inch, boards in mid dle laid on flat on the cross-scan tlings. As will be seen, if the drag ESSSSS * /MJWA B fIGS 4 6*5 Is drawn from point A the slanted boards will run against the clods and if from b will run over them, the middle boards serving to smooth the surface. If made as in B, the drag drawn from either direction will run against the clods at the front, on top at the middle and over them at the rear. If like C it will exactly re verse this operation, the front third of drag slipping on top of clods and the rear third against them. If like D and drawn from slanted end, the first set of boards slip over the clods, the middle set run against them, and the rear set slip on top and smooth the disturbed surface.

B. » ~~ Oar job printing is the best. I To lap the beards in any of thi four ways above is really as easy ai to have them as in Fig. 2, and othei combinations may be adopted in liki manner. If six four-inch slanted and three four-inch or two six-inct middle boards are used the totaJ width of drag will not exceed thret feet, and the farmer may use thos« of proper length, to make the drag of the required weight, say six tc eight feet. Again, if all six-inch hoards are used the drag will b» about 4/2 feet wide, etc. It is easy to bolt a mower seat on the drag, and it may be revolved so as to suit convenience in drawing drag from either edge. Any form of the drag, except B may be improved upon by beveling front edge of first slanted board, ai should be done anyway, and nailing on Ix 2 'inch cleats, broad side down having them about six to eight inches apart and slanted from front centei toward each end. On the rear plank an arrangement of utility is an old cross-cut saw blade bent and bolted tin as illustrated in Fig. 4, B, which also shows manner of applying the cleats on front planks, A. For the farmer, however, who pre fers a drag not so scientifically con structed, Fig. 5 shows a folding slat float that in its class can't be beat. To make it two good nine-foot slabs ns nenrly uniform in width and thick ness the whole length as possible, art required. Cut into six equal piece! and spike two pieces of inch hard wood hoards, six inches wide, on flat sides of euch two slabs at ends, mak ing three sections of the drag which hinge together crosswise by iroL hunks. Attach an old wagon Ol sleigh pole for tongue, and put on s mower seat. The drag will be a little over nine feet wide; if desired 12-foot slabs may be used, cutting into four-foot sections. This drag adapts itself to uneven ground, and may be folded up to go through nap row places. I trust the illustrations will es elucidate the construction of these useful implements that readers will readily understand. —J. G. Allshouse in Ohio Farmer. PRODUCTS FROM CORN.

Corn oil cake, gluten meal, all cat tle feeding stuffs of a very high grade and capable of being scientifically fed with superior advantages. Rubber substitute, a substitute for crude rubber, and very extensively used. Corn germ, the material from which the oil and cake are obtained. British gum, a starch which makes a very adhesive medium, and is used by textile mills for running their colors, as well as by manufacturers who require a very strong adhesive medium that contains no trace ef acid. Granulated gum, which competes with gum arable, is used successfully in its place, and finds a ready prefer ence by reason of the absence of any offensive odor. —Farmers' Voice. Malttnar Use of Skim Milk. Investigations show that many of our farmers that produce milk fail to realize the value they should from the skim milk. The writer has been in creameries where the farmers had so little use for the skim milk that the creamery manager was glad to get rid of it to the citizens of the neighbor ing village at one cent per gallon. This was a good thing for the citizens, but it showed a great lack on the part of the men that haii produced the milk. We have no doubt that many of the farmers that produced that milk and didn't want the skim milk were feeding their poultry on a grain ration the year round. —Farmers' Review. Honesty la Selllaar Pratt. It is doubtful if the law will ever suc seed in giving the people full protec tion in their fruit purchases. Only our fruit producers can bring to bear on the situation enough force to compel honesty. In our foreign trade in fruit it has been found that it pays to ship only the best and the same principle should be applied to our domestic mar kets. We hope to see the day when all fruit sold in our large markets will be graded according to quality, honesty of packing and the like. As soon as that is done the marketing of poor fruit will be made unprofitable. It is profitable now only as it sells for what it iB not. —Farmers' Beview. 4 OASTORXA.

Th« parasite that causes this dis ease is. called trichina spiralis. It in fests the flesh of several animals, especially the hog. From the hog it is sometimes transferred to man causing severe sickness and not in frequently death, says tbe Prairie Farmer. Trichina is found in pork both in America and Europe, and its presence has been made a pretext by which some foreign nations keep out American pork. Most of the pork in spection at the Union stock yards, Chicago, is due to the prominence ol this question in the European mind. However, German pork is as much in fested with trichina as our own, and H is believed a little more so. Trichina inhabits the bodies of ani mals at all stages of its existence, and where swine are entirely unable to get anything but vegetable diet the danger that they will become infested with trichina is small. For that rea son it ia not safe to permit swine to feed on tbe offal of slaughter houses, carrion, rats, mice and the like. Hoga so fed became a menace to the health of the eaters of the pork they pro duce. The trichina is very small, and lives in minute cysts in the muscles. When these cysts are eaten by hogs the Juices of the stomach set loose the imprisoner trichinae, which escape into tbe intestines where they pail and the females bring forth a numer ous brood of larvae, which find theii way to the muscles, where they in turn become encysted. The hog him self does not appear to suffer from the presence of these parasites, and they can therefore be discovered only by a microscopic examination of tin pork. It ia said that no remedy hai been discovered that will uestroy th« trichinae after they have become en cysted in the muscles. When pork infested with trichinae is eaten by man. the thousands of cyst a are op erated en ay the juices of his stom ach. The parasites are let loose and proceed to hie intestines where they pair and breed. Their progeny begin • march through the walls of his in testines to his muscles, and induce symptoms similar to typhoid fever. If the man can endure the horrible pain of the migration of the para sites (rem his intestines to his mus cles he will live. The trichinae will •asm there and give no further trouble, but will remain with him through the rest of his life. MAKING A VENTILATOR. It Should Be Covered at the Top and ■• Aeraaa-ed That There Mar Be No I.Bklna. The ventilator that extends from near the lower floor up through the roof must be arranged so that there may be no leaking. Let the four sides extend out through the roof six or eight inches, and put tins about the joint, as shown in the cut. Then '111**'*» at ■ Jlii''"**' b * VENTILATOR FOB HOUSE OR BARN. make an outside part just big enough to slip down over the whole. This can be nailed to the inner portion. No leak can thus occur, a ventilator should always be covered at the top, since even a small one open there will let in an enormous amount of snow when the wind is driving the latter about in the air. Openings through from each side will give an upward draught In the ventilator, whichever way the wind may be blowing. There ought to be a damper in every venti lator, so that the opening may be closed when the wind is too strong or in extremely cold weather. This can be arranged just like a fire damp er in a stove funnel or by a slide.— N. Y. Tribune. Shea* aa a Farm Product. The growing crops prove that there is richness in our soil. On unfilled land the weeds tell plainly of the fertility of our so-called waste places. From year to year our county has made a neglected and woolly appearance for the simple reason that we do not raise wool. Cattle will not thoroughly clean land, but sheep will and at the same time improve the soil. In addition to the polish each farm would show if there were a flock of sheep on it, the Income would be better than any product at the farm. With a reasonable number of sheep there would be thou sands of dollars to the credit of the farmers where there is not a dollar.— fioff's Stocktos (Mo.) Republican. KaTeetlve Ttrktr Medicine. I have seen mention of turkeys being lost on account of bowel trouble. Sev eral of us have lost turkeys from the same cause, but we think we have hit upon a sure cure for it, and the cost is comparatively nothing. We did not .o«e a turkey after using the remedy. Get five cents' worth of Venetian red, such as painters use, and mix it in the food and water for the turkeys, keep ing sll other water away and compell ing them to drink the "medicine." This seems simple enough, but it does the business.—Bural World.
