Tbere is no place where a farmer is called upon to one better . judgment thf " in the cane of his work team in the stable. The team if required to do constant and severe labor day af ter day, and must be kept in constant health to endare the strain. The variety of food at hand is limited to drv corn and hay on a great many farms, and it to almost impossible on such diet to keep a team in good health. The stomach of the horse is j smaller in proportion to his sire than that of any other animal, and as the horse is much more active than other largg animals h<*. oupht to nour ishment in its least bulky form and oftener than other animals. Feed ing often is impracticable when much ; work is required of him. so the horse must make up at night for the wear and tear of a day of starvation and eiercise. With this in view a good ' horseman will provide his team with the cleanest and most nutritious food. He will also provide a variety | of foods so as to keep up the appetite and meet al! the wants of the system. Where corn is the only grain grown on the farm and the only rough food i6 prairie hay, it will be some trouble i to provide a variety of food. But there is always a way if there is only will. Some corn can be sold and with the proceeds wheat brau can be bought, a tinall amount of which mixed with corn will produce excellent results. A small amount of clover hay can be procured in every neigh borhood. An occasional feed of clover hay moistened will be relished by the team, and has a feeding value almost equal to oats, pound for pound. Some good .farmers keep their teams on clover hay alone without any grain ' whatever. Care in watering horses is as im portant as feeding. A horse has onlj one sensation at a time, and when he 1 is hungry he don t want water, and i when thirsty he don't want food till ! he is watered, so that it is impossible ; to lay down a 'rule for watering. It ! is a good plan to water before feed ! iug, especially in the morning, and if ' the horse seems very thirsty do not let him have all he will drink. a ; ter him again some time after feeding, also. A horse will not digest hisfood if he is wanting water, and panting aud exhaustion often noticed its gener" ally caused by indigestion from not" getting enough water to supply the ; system. In such a case it will pay to take a team to water no matter how great is the hurry. Food For Poultry. Bran is a very good article of food for poultry, butflthe same food without variation should not be given for any considerable time. And it is indispen sable that all kinds of poultry be fre quently, if not even daily, supplied with green food, such as cabbage, cauliflower, turnip and lettuce. When they have no opportunity for seeking worms and insects for them selves, auimal food should be given , them, and the refuse of kitchen cannot ; be more profitably employed than by feeding it to poultry. It is possible at , some seasons to give too much food. making the poultry too fat. and thus ' diminishing the production of eggs: but at other times, fo<>d cannot be too plentiful. Water should at all times be abundantly supplied. Give the Baby Water. Many a baby is drugged with pare goric and soothing syrups when all that it needs or wants is a drop of water. It is always a safe thing to | try a child with a teaspoonful of wa ter when it is restless or evinces a de" sire to nurse frequently. A child who cannot ask for it. often suffers torments for a drop of water. Espe cially in hot weather is this true. 1 have heard many a mother say that she had never thought of giving her baby a drink and yet, from the very nature of a baby's food, it is more apt to require water than we are. Milk induces thirst, as anyone who has tried a milk diet knows. To Remove Pimples. There is little or nothing to be said against the washes used to remove pimples and black-heads. They are usually made by dermatologists of good standing and do their work properly and in a reasonable time. It is far better, however, to depend upon a fine toilet soap or dilute am monia. gentle but persistent rubbing, the Turkish and Russian baths and a pieceof lemon. A two-weekscourse of , the latter will improve auy complex ion better than all the washes extant and. more than that, will correspond ingly improve the general health. One Way to Cleanse a Carpet. Having dusted and removed such articles as can be carried Jfroin the room, wring a flannel mop out of hot water and wipe the carpet thoroughly wringing the mop from clean water as often as it may become soiled. >Tow sweep with a broom, as you or dinarily would, and when you have finished you will have a bright, clean carpet, with little or no dust, and all at the expense of a very little hard labor. Those who have not tried this ; method are skeptical about its merits, but one trial will convince. A Specific* for Hiccough. Moisten granulated sugar with good vinegar, and of this take from a few grains to a teaspoonfuL The effect is almost instantaneous, and the dose seldom needs to be repeated. It can be used for all ages, from infants of a ! few months old to those on the down hill side of life. The remedy is cer tainly a very simple one and. although no theory is advanced to account for j its wonderful action, it merits a trial. Bacld?'? Araica Kahr.

In the treatmenfof tumors by elec tricity it has been pointed oat that ex treme care is necessary, especially w hen negative electricity is used. ? A new English arc electric lamp h??i the upper carbon fed by means of an electric motor, which drives a worm and a train of gearing. ? According to Prof. Thurston the engine of the future is that which ulti mately can be made to work up at once to high temperature and to high press ures, and can be made at the same time to develop its powers in the small est and lightest engine. ? A French manufacturing tirm has patented an alloy of steel with two to four per cent, of copper. It is more elastic and malleable than simple steel, and capable of a far greater resistance. ' It is intended for cannon, armor-plates, I rifle-barrels and projectiles. ? Some experiments lately made at ? the Royal Polytechnic school at M unich, 1 show that the strength of camel bair | belting reaches 6,815 pounds per square I inch, while that of ordinary belting ranges between 2.230 and 5.260 pounds . per square inch- The camel-hair belt ! is unaffected by acids. ? Out of 106 persons treated within a period of eleven months at the Pas teur Institute at Rio de Janeiro only one died, and that one had neglected to follow the treatment as directed. In ? sixty-two of these cases the dog by which the patient was bitten was un questionably mad; in the others it was impossible to determine positively the dog's condition. ? Ordinary filters, even if satisfac tory as strainers, fail to remove all bacteria from drinking water. So far from lessening the number in the original water the filtering substance may allow a more rapid multiplication than these micro-organisms would ordinarily undergo in the unfiltered water on standing, and the germs of disease, even if held back by the filter ing substance, may be harbored in all filters. ?It appears that, though the first attempts at cultivating the American cotton three in Central Asia proved unsuccessful, a new attempt, made since 1884. under the leadership of the Tashkent model farm, and with seeds taken from America, has proved to be a real success. In 1887 there i were no less than 88,700 acres under ' that crop in Turkestan, and in the fol j lowing year the area was trebled. The crop of 1887 was estimated at | 68,000 cwts. of raw cotton. ? The existence or libraries and I schools before the exodus was shown by a report at a recent meeting of the Vic ! toria Institute in London. Professor Saver, by personal investigation of an , cient tablets and inscription-. found that I in the fifteenth century before our era active literary intercourse was going on throughout the civilized world of ! western Asia, between Babylon and Egypt and the smaller States of Pales ! tine, of Syria, of Mesopotamia, and even of eastern Cappadocia. This in ' tercourse was carried on by means ol the Babylonian language and the com plicated Babylonian script ?There is but little doubt that ! aluminum is destined to be the it. tal of the future, and will displace ron and steel as surely as electricity i.-* c:s placing gas and steam. Aluminum .t ists wherever there is a clay be >k. Formerly the cost of reducing It to metallic form was excessive, but now the electric current is utilized in its production, which is daiiy bein| effected at a cheaper rate. Aluminum is a soft white metal which never rusts. It is little more than one-third the . weight of iron, and, combining well [ with other metals, it becomes, when alloyed with copper, harder than t-'eeL ? Some novel processes in the manu facture of paper have been suggested, and it is ascertained by experiments in this direction that the strength of paper is materially increased by the- employ ment of sea weeds, which form with water ? certain kinds of them in par ticular ? glutinous liquid-.: resin soap 1 and alumino"c '?ake or compound may also be adv.i .ir~*ously added, under certain circum-tances. Experiments , also show that a very bright surface may be given to paper by the following simple method: A very concentrated cold solution of salt i* mixed with dex trine. and a thin coating of the fluid , laid on the surface of the paper, by , means of a soft, broad brush, and it is then allowed to dry. The most desir able salts for this purpose are sulphate of tin, sulphate of m;ufnesia, and ac etate of soda, and size paper is also essential. Attempted Suicide a Crime. A recent report of the New York , Board of Health furnishes some facts of interest as to the numb? r of suicides in that city sinee September. I**!, when the law went into force making an attempt at suicide a crime. Prior to that date the number of suicides in New York was at the annual rate of , 144 to a million of inhabitants. During : the last eight years the number has not increased, although the popjlation has been steadily increasing. While the number of suicides by the use of fire arms has decreased, there has been a contemporaneous increase in the num ber of deaths by poison. Ibis in dicates a predetermination on the part of those in whom the suicidal mania was most strongly pronounced that there must be no chance of failure, the ;hought being that such failure might subject them to the punishment pre scribed by the penal code." It is a sig nificant fact that of those who have committed suicide during the last eight years two-thirds were of foreign birth ' and one-third native. ? Philadelphia Record.
