Preparing Poultry For Markets
Dressed fowls should always look
nice and plump and should be packed
in nice clean linen. Plumpness appeals
to the appetite and neatness inspires
confidence, both being points
worth looking after to buildup a firstclass
dressed poultry trade.
Vlrtuea of Buttermilk.
The growing practice of utilizing
the waute products of all manufactures
has brought out the fact that
buttermilk possesses many unsuspected
qualities. A medical paper says
its reputation as an agent of superior
digestibility has become firmly established.
It is, indeed,*a true milk peptone?that
is, milk already partially
digested, the coagulation of the
coagulated portion being loose and
flaky and not of that firm, indigestible
nature which is the result of the
action of the gastric juice upon sweet
cows' milk. It is of great value in
the treatment of typhoid fever, and,
being a decided laxative, it may be
turned to advantage in the treatment
of habitual constipation. It is no
less valuable in kidney troubles, from
its diuretic qualities. It is in great
request for the treatment of diabetes,
either alone or alternately with skimmilk,
and in cases of gastric ulcer and
cancer of the stomach it can often be
retained when no other food can.
Chemical analysis shows that in its
nature it greatly resembles koumiss,
with the exception of which it is the
most grateiui, reiresning ana aigesuble

Tarnips as a Catcli Crop.
So many farmer.0 sow turnips as a
catch crop in corn and potatoes that
they forget there is any better way.
Ab a rule catch crops do not pay.
They always interfere with the late
cultivation of hoed crops, which is always
important and sometimes necessary
if there is a dry time late in summer.
Now that most farmers cultivate
hoed crops very shallow late in
the summer, merely scratching the
surface to kill weeds while they are
small, there is less objection to tate
cultivation than used to be the case.
In the old days, 'when a plow was
used at the last cultivation to pile the
soil up against the hills of corn or potatoes,
the lesult was always injury
and often ruin to the crop. In such
case, too, there was little chance for
turnips to grow, as the soil piled up
against tne nuis turneu tne water into
the middle of the rows, or rather
the corn leaves themselves did so, as
they bend over to the middle of the
rows by July and often in June turning
the slightest shower into the middle
of the row, where most of the corn
roots are. Under the hill the soil is
almost always dry until the corn is
cut. The potato top does not lop
over so much, but it, too, throws a
good deal of the moisture that falls on
it into the space between the hills.?
Sweet Clover For Bees.
This clover is one that yields a
large amount of honey. It begins to
bloom in this latitude in the early
part of July, usually; some seasons a
little earlier, others a little later. By
the time white and alsike clover and
basswood are going out of bloom,
sweet clover is well out in bloom, and
where abundant a continuous bloom
will be nacl lor securing surplus

second time, and continue in blcom
until after hard frosts. I have seen
bees working on this bloom in October,
writes F. A. Snell in Bee
Culture, when all other honey-yielding
plants were killed with one exception,
that being giant white-spiral
mignonette, which is sometimes
grown in flower gardens.
Sweet clover stands drought well,
but gives a better yield of honey and
pasture with frequent showers. The
honey is light in color, but, to my
taste, not of as fine a flavor as that
from white or alsike clovers or basswood.
In the dry regions of the
West, sweet clover and alfalfa have
proved valuable plants for bees and
stock. The hay is largely fed to
stock. Here cattle pasture on it
freely, and the hay has seemed to
give good satisfaction, as stock soon
learn to like it.
This plant should be grown in all
waste places, anil thus take the place
of the noxious weeds which grow
Effect* of Feed on Etre*.
Anyone who has observed eggs
closely has noticed that some eggs
have what poultryinon call greater
consistency than others. That is, out
of a dozen eggs bought at a ctore half
will have whites and yolks so thin
that they will spread out thin and
wide and be almost flat.
This is the effect of the feed given
| the hens producing the eggs. Hens
that are fed on milk and grass and
allowed to pick up their living about
the manure pile produce* eggs with
thin yolks and whites, and these eggs
are invariably insipid and tasteless,
and when boiled or poached are not
exactly appetizing. There is a flavor
about such eggs that is not altogether
pleasaut in any case and often it is
positively repulsive to one who understands
that this flavor comes from
eating impure food.
Take a lot of liens and feed them
milk and grain and their eggs are firm
' - - i ai i a
ilia cousisteur, ana tuey usve a uuvui
that makes them relished by the most
fastidious. The grain furnishes the
mineral constituents and^the albuminous
portion, in connection with the
milk) and the combination is one that
makes good eggs. Hens fed ex
clusively on grain do not produce
eggs of the best flavor, but their eggs
are infinitely better than those from
hens that must depend altogether on
themselves for their living.
The quality of eggs depends altogether
on the feed the hens eat, and
where this is understood, consistent
eggs are valued as being worth twice
as much a? those lacking consistency.
Scrcenn For Stable Windows.
The wire screens commonly used in
houses to keep out flies are now so
cheap that they can be profitably used
in stable windows for the same purpose.
But it must be remembered
that the stable is itself the most common
breeding place for flies, in tho
excrement from animals in which the
flies deposit their eggs. Unless care
is- taken to gather up ana remove tne
droppings before there is time for
eggs to hatch, the window screens
will serve rather to shut the flies in
than to keep them out. Stables should
never be built near houses, because if
they are nothing can keep houses
from being overrun with flies. .Next
to the stable as a breeding place for
these pests is the sink hole, where
slops of all kinds are thrown to pass
oil" through drains underneath. It is
possible that where these conditions
prevail, flie3, though annoying, are
really beneficial. Flies doubtless destroy
much filth, and thus lessen the
malaria which would prevail if they
had not been created. But it is far
better to place all decaying substances
under ground, where the earth
will absorb their bad odors, than to
leave them on the surface to breed
Fomlcatlnc an Orchard.
The only remedy which is absolutely
for nil kinds nf scale is thai i
of fumigation. This was first practiced
in California in the citrus belt to
check the ravages of the cottony cashion
scale and the red scale. Hydrocyanic
acid gas proved most effective
and is now used almost exclusively.
C. W. Woodworth, in bulletin 122
of the California Experiment Station,
describes in detail the process of fumigating
treeB in an orchard. Briefly,
it consists in covering the trees with
some sort of tent, generating the gas
and allowing it to remain until the
scales have been destroyed.
The tent generally used is what is
known as a hoop tent and ranges from
eight to fourteen feet in diameter.
The hoop itself is of three-quarter
inch gas pipe, but half inch will dofoi
smaller sizes. The manipulation of
the tent varies according to its size.
If the trees are small, it can be easily
thrown over a tree, put in place and
then taken off. If the trees are of considerable
pize some effort will be required.
In the illustration the method
of changing from one tree to anothei
is shown. After the fumigation if
completed, the hoop is lifted until il
ia in the po'sition shown at b. Twc
men, holding the sides of the tent,
carry it to the next tree and place itic
the position shown at c. Then, without
pausing, and while the tent is ful?
of air, the upper end of the hoop if
forced over the tree and down the
other side to about d. The hoop cat)
then ; be easily pulled down to the
ground to e. If there is any trouble
ia pulling over the cloth, the third man
with the pole goes round the tent and
lifts the cloth away from the tree, re
lieving some of the friction and enabling
it to adjust itcelf to the top.

ounce canvas. After the tent is made,
it is rendered gastight by one of thrfee
methods. The first is coating it with
thoroughly boiled linseed oil, applied
with a brubii until the entire cloth be
comes saturated. If properly done,
the tent remains strong and tight and
is not too stiff. The second method
is the use of sizing aud paint. The
sizing is applied in the same manner
as oil, and penetrates the fiber in the
same way. As soon as this coating is
dried, it is followed by a coating oi

the tent. The third method is to saturate
the cloth with a decoctiou ol
chopped leaves of common prickly
pear cactus. This is made by filling a
barrel two-thirds full of chopped stems
and adding cold water until the barrel
is nearly full. Allow the stems to soak
for twenty-four hours aud then draw
off the solution, which is ready for
use. Tents treated in this way are
liable to mold, but by adding to tho
solution a little tannin this is prevented.
Soak the tent in the solution
over nigl^t and then raise in the morning
and allow to dry. The cloth is
scarcely stiffened and seems to be very
satisfactory. Potassium cyanide, iu
an earthen vessel, is introduced under
the end of the tent, sulphuric acid is
added, and the hydrocyanic gas is generated.
The amount of cyanide will
vary with the size of the tree. A treo
four feet high, three feet in diameter,
will require two ounces of dry cyanide,
one-third ounce acid and half ounce
water. If the tree is seven feet high
and four leet in diameter, use one
ounce of cyanide, one-half ounce acid
and two ounces of water, and so on in
proportion. Forty minutes are required
for the gas to do its work effectively.
Tho fumigation is best done
at night. The gas is a deadly poison,
and great care must be used when fumigating.

AN OBJECT-LESSON IN WEALTH.
How an American Girl ! Teaching: tbo
French the Magic Power of a Fortune.
Parisians had heard of the late Jay
Gould and his high-piled millions of
money, but for the past two years they
have "been receiving a special objectlesson
on the power of wealth in newworld
hands, in the effort of his
daughter, the Countess de Castellane,
to reproduce in Paris the palace of the
Grand Trianon, as built by the French
Kings at Versailles more than two centuries
ago. Three-quarters of an acre
of land was bought at the intersection
of the Avenue du Bois de Boulogne
and the Avenue Malakoff, at an expense
of clo9e to a million of dollars,
this being the most costly residential
site in Paris. Public interest has
been made keen by the announcement
that while the exterior would hold true
to the fourteenth century, the interior
was to be a blending of the
fonrteenth and fifteenth periods, if
tbe Gould millions and the canning
of the French architects could compass
this unique desire. The revival
of two historic periods in French architectural
history was so remarkable
an undertaking that from its beginning
the progress of this house has
been followed with such a wide interest
as has been given to few purely
private building projects. In May tho
family was occupying the central portion,
but the interior decoration of
the two wings probably cannot be
completed in less than two years more.
When it became known such amaison
wa3 to be attempted many of the
French said it would take twenty
fears to build and furnish with art
treasures; but Western enterprise and
local ingenuity promise its completion
in a fifth of the time. The property
will then have cost thirty millions of
trancs, or six millions of dollars. Both
the Count and Countess are collectors
Df rare art works and bric-a-brac, and
in a single year, it is said, they expended
a million of dollars in pur
abases for their new residence. When the
matter of ceilings was being arranged
for the Castellanes went to
[taly and songht the splendid palace
of Verona. They did not want the
palace, but coveted the eleven ceilings
it contained from the brush of
Tiepolo, and these could be secured
only by the purchase of the old structure.?Edward

What Soda Water I*.
Soda water, so called because first
made with soda, is a mineral water,
made of carbonic acid and water, and
flavored with various kinds of syrups.
Its common name has now no meaning,
because the soda water of the
present day has no soda in it. Carbonic
acid will mix with water at the
common heat and pressure of the air,
but if the heat be lessened and the
pressure increased, muc- more of it
can bo forced into the water. In
making sod?, water the carbonic acid
is obtained by pouring weak sulphuric
acid over marble dust, which sets free
the gas. This is then forced by
means of a powerful pump into the
water contained in a very strong airtight
vessel. The water thus im.

I8?? BY THE PROCT
Origin of Staterooms.
The nse of the word "staterooms"
as applied to the cabins on a steamer
or other vsssel is of curious origin. In
the palmy days of steamboating on the
Mississippi and OhioBivers the passenger
packets were fitted up with every
accommodation for the guests. It was
the cuiitom on the better class of boats
to name the cabins after 'the various
States of the Union. Thus there would
be a "Virginia" cabin, a "Massachusetts"
cabin, a "Maryland" cabin, etc.
There was considerable rivalry as to
which State should have the most
handsomely furnished cabin named
after it. Passengers coming from different
parts of the country took sides
and often made it uncomfortable for
steamboat captains when they imagined
that the State of their birth had
been slighted, In consequence it
, gradually became the oustom to number
the cabins instead of naming them.
This is now the universal rule, the
'Texas" alone surviving. As is fitting,
the "Texas" is always the largest
2abin on the boat. It is used for sleeping
quarters by the crew and is located
immediately under the pilot house.
Bat the name stateroom has stack and
is now in universal use.

Scott's novel, "The Heart of Midlothian,"
was in real life named Helen
Walker. The incidents related in regard
to the trial and conviction of her
sister were trae in every detail, and
it was only by the efforts of Helen
Walker in circulating a petition for
her sister's pardon that the latter's
life was saved. Sir Walter Scott
erected a tombstone to Helen Walker's
memory in the churchyard of Irongray,
with an inscription expressing
his appreciation of her virtues.?

Uiiinff Natural Gag in England.
A correspondent states that at last
the natural gas at Heathfield, Sussex,
bas been put to practical use. The
railway station has been lighted with
it, after experiments with various
burners. This new application has
aroused a good deal of interest in scientific
circles, and several natural
history societies have visited the place
and inspected the new arrangement.
0. Dawson, F. G. S>, who has visited
the place and made an inspection,
says it is, in his opinion, the first
time practical use has been made of
natural gas in Europe.?London Telegraph.
