This emulsion destroys plant lice,
squash bugs, leaf hoppers, aphis, bark
lice, chinch bugs, etc., prepared as
follows: Dissolve one-half pound of
the best whale oil soap in four pints
of water boiling. When the soap is
all dissolved remove from the fire and
add eight flints of kerosene, agitating
the whole briskly until a stable mix
ture is obtained. This is best done
by using the force pump and pump
ing the mixture with force against
the vessel that contains it. The
strength ordinarily used is prepared
by diluting one part of the Emulsion
in ten or twelve parts of water. In
making Kerosene Emulsion only whale
oil soap should be used-the common
soap will not answer the purpose.
The whale oil soap . costs only a few
cents a pound.-Indiana Farmer.
Dry Feed for Chicks.
One of the best possible rations for
a chick, whether reared under ben or
in brooder, is what we call dry ration.
It is the nearest approach to the nat
ural diet of a fowl possible to attain.
This method calls for all dry food,
such-as rolled wheat and oats, small
broken corn, rice or grain of any
kind, small seeds and beef scraps
mixed; to this should be ?clded small
grit of some kind. The beef scrap
should be of good quality, that has
been properly prepared and ; nicely
ground. This Kidd of food can be
greatly improved by the addition of
some well-broken peas and beans, and
a little properly prepared clover. The
peas,' beans and clover furnish the
vegetable and green food, the rest
the grain seed and the animal portion
of their diet, giving them a most per
fectly balanced ration. Should it be
preferred to add to this a mixed food,
it ; should be thoroughly scalded. If
cooked or baked, so much the better,
for this takes away the unnaturalness
of the food. ?ut little trouble from
feeding is experienced when this
method is followed.-N. G. Temple, in
Gooseberries and Currants.
The Downing gooseberry pays mc
well for market, being hardy and pro
lific. Taking one season with another,
;att.acre of gooseberries sells for about
$200. ' Among currants, the Fay is a
superior variety-large, prolific and a
good keeper.-John W. Page.
Currants are easily grown, not re
quiring especially good cultivation,
and doing well even in the shade of
orchard trees, but good care and
plenty of fertilizer will pay. My fav
orite variety is the Red Cross.-E. E.
Gooseberries are a profitable crop
with me, selling at about $J.DO per
bushel, wholesale. Currants also pay
well, bringing an average of $2.50 per
bushel. Both fruits are subject to at
tacks of the currant worm, which
strips the foliage', but wc fight them
successfully by using a tablespoonful
of paris green to a quart of slaked
lime sifted on the plants while the
dew is on and repeating the opera
tion each week during the early part
of thc season. I grow the Houghton
gooseberry and the Red, Dutch, Vic
toria and Fay currants. The cherry

In preparing fish for fowls we pre
fer to chop them up raw, add a very
little salt and pepper and feed in small
quantities in connection with grain
and vegetables; but for young chicks
It is advisable to boll before feeding
and simply open the . fish down the
line of the back bone, leaving to the
chicks the rest of the task. This food
should be given to layers sparingly,
or wc may perceive a fishy smell about
the eggs, especially if the fish is fed
raw. All who can will do well to try
this diet for their flocks, and note its
effect on egg production. We have
always marked a decided^ncrease in

?ood Grafting Wax.
four parts (ounces or pounds)
/ax two parts, tallow one part.
Melt together slowly in an iron ves
sel, stirring with a stick and taking
care that there is no danger of burn
ing. In about 20 minutes or so, when
well mixed, pour out a portion into a
vessel of cold water. This in a min
ute or so will be cool enough to take
up and work with the hands, pulling
it like taffy. The hands must have
been slightly greased with tallow, to
prevent the wax from sticking to
them. When the wax has been pulled
enough until it becomes light-colored,
it may bc .nade into rolls or balls,
and put into another vessel of cold
water to harden; and then laid away
until required for use.
Other portions of the melted wax
may be poured into the first vessel of
cold water from time to time, and
treated as before until all is used up.
In using this wax in the orchard, if
the day is cold it will need to lie in
warm water (when not in use) in or
der to have it of the proper consis
tency for working well; and in warm
weather it may need to be kept lying
in cold water for the same purpose.
This wax has been used for many
years and it answers the purpose per
fectly; never cracking and falling off
the graft in . the coldest weather or
melting and running down the stock
in summer.-Southern Fruit Grower.
Last season we had very good suc
cess in growing muskmelons, both for
home use .and for market. The
ground, a black loam, was plowed
rather early and put in good condi
tion by the use of the drag and har
rop. ' In the spring a generous appli
cation of barnyard manure was spread
upon the ground and turned under.
As soon as the danger of frost was
over we planted the seeds in hills, in
rows about 3 1-2 feet apart, and the
hills about seven feet in the rows. As
soon as they were through the ground
we wen* over the plants with salt
petre water, to help drive the little
striped bugs away. I think it acted
as a fertilizer, for the plants made a
very rapid growth afterwards. After
an interval of a few days, a second
application was made. We used a

Yes, Sow Rape for the Pigs.
In answer to two inquiries about
the value of rape pasture for pigs, we
reproduce again the following from
the Wisconsin Experiment Station;
Read the experience carefully.
1. That with pigs from four to ten
months old, representing the various
breeds of swine, an acre of rape, when
properly grown, has a feeding value,
when combined with a ration of corn
and shorts, equivalent to 2436 pounds
of mixture of these grain feeds and a
money value of 519.49 per acre.
2. That rape is a better green feed
for growing pigs than good clover pas
ture, the pigs fed upon the rape hav
ing made on thc average 100 pounds
of gain on 33.5 pounds less grain than
was required by the pigs fed upon
. 3. That pigs are more thrifty, have
better appetites and make correspond
ingly greater gains when supplied with
rape pasture in conjunction with their
grain feed than when fed on grain
4. That a- plant of Dwarf Essex
forage rape, when planted in drills 30
inches apart, early in May, will yield
three good crops of pasture forage in
a favorable season.
5. That rape is the most satisfac
tory and cheapest green feed for swine
that we have fed.
6. That every feeder of hogs should
plant each spring a small field of rape
adjoining his yard, and ..provide him
self with a few rods of movable fence,
to properly feed thc rape to brood
sows and young pigs.
7. That rape should be sown for
this purpose in drills 30 inches apart
to facilitate the stirring of the ground
and cultivation after each successive
growth has been eaten off.
8. The hogs should not be turned
upon a rape pasture until the plants
are at least twelve to fourteen inches
high, and that they should be pre
vented from rooting while in the rape
9. That rape is not a satisfactory
feed when fed alone, when it is de
sired to have any live weigh gain
made in hogs, though it has been
found that they will just about main
tain themselves without loss of weight
on this feed alone.-Indiana Farmer.

of wear at the sides. Careful house
keepers often "turn" such sheets
when, they arc made of double width

handkerchief hem and sew the outer
selvages together. A carefully

as long as a sheet that is left to wear

over-particular housewives so often
suggest. Except for the woman who

Contented in Spain.
And that is a charming feature of
Spain-this fine capacity to imagine
yourself the centre of the earth for the
time being and yet not be offensive.
You meet a man on a donkey in the
interior and get to talking with him,
and soon you learn that ho has the
finest donkey of the province, and so
(far from envying any man he it is
who is satisfied that he is exciting the
admiration if not the envy of his
neighbors. If I met the same sort of
an outfit in the mountains of Colorado
or Nevada the cavalier would be sure
to hold his burro in contempt, and
would talk of the fine horse he meant
to have when his mind had been de
veloped. We Americans preach con
tentment, but we despise the people
who are contented. The true Spaniard
is' thoroughly contented.-National

Illuminant* of tho Vast, One and All,

With Its Clear, Unwavering, Yet Soft
riama Cannot Hnrt the Byes.
Nevi' York, June 20-No one can go
into our schools or meet a group of
children on the street without noticing
how large a number of them wear
''spectacles. Tho proportion seems to
increase yearly, and there are many
more who ought to wear glasses. The
experience of oue teacher might be du
plicated by Hie score. She knew Alice
was inattentive aud she thought she
was unusually stupid. She said so
to the principal and sent a note to
the mother, requesting that the child
bo helped at home if she wished her
to keep lip with her class. One day
after a blackboard explanation, the
1 cacher called upon the child and fouud
that she had not seen what had been
written. She was kept after school
and by dint of much sympathetic ques
tioning Miss C. found that Alice had
never been able to seo what was put
on tho board and that ber head had
ached so often and so bard that she
frequently failed to hear what was
Such a condition may bo caused by
lack of proper food, but in our Ameri
can homes it is usually due to thc poor
quality of tho artificial light. The yel
low, insufficient light of tho ordinary
kerosene lamp, with its smoky chim
ney, is about as bad for the eyes'.is
can be imagined. The flickering light
from a coal gas jet is but little better,
and even the electric light, brilliant
as it usually is, has an unsteadiness
due lo variations in power, and a .^nre j
peculiarly trying to tho delicate nerves
of sight. Tho comparatively new il
luminant acetylene gas produces as
nearly perfect an artificial light as has
yet been found. It gives a clear white,
unwavering light, very brilliant, yet
perfectly soft, and so nearly like thc
rays of the sun that oven* colors ap
pear as in daylight.
Fortunately, acetylene is very easily
and cheaply produced, and the simple
apparatus necessary can be purchased
aud installed in any home at a very
moderate cost, and thc acetylene can
be piped lo convenient points in the
house where a light is needed. It is
then lighted and extinguished and used
exactly like common city gas.
Acetylene is rapidly coining Jnto
common use in homes, churches,
schools and institutions of all kinds,
and it is reasonable to expect that as
its uso in the homo increases, there
will bo fewer defective eyes, particu
larly among children. Poor eyesight
and tko many ills resulting therefrom
will undoubtedly be much reduced by
the use of this new illuminant.
Savory butter is made by using
some desired savory ingredient in
fresh butter. You buy either the un
salted butter or wash from the salt

you are making some kinds of past?,
and then you rub into it with a silver
knife or spoon such essence or flavor
ing as you like. Anchovy essence,
Worcestershire sauce, onion juice,
chopped Spanish peppsr or parsley, or
any one of a hundred things. Then
this butter is used for spreading
bread for -sandwiches or for putting
on some kinds of hot meat or fish.
