HOG CHOLERA RECOMMENDED
Device le Paying Proposition and Will
Save Trouble-Animals Soon
Learn Its Use.
There seems to be very little said
about tiie hog oiler aud j'et it is
something that has been used on a
great many farms for the past year or
two. I have had experience with oil
ers of different kinds and find that
the uso of a good oiler, that does not
leak or clog up, is quite worth while
and is a paying proposition, as it will
.save a great deal of trouble and ne
glect, says a writer in an exchange.
A great many farmers neglect keep
ing their hot's free from lice and
mange simply because it is so much
trouble and annoyance to get them up
in a pen and sprinkle or dip them.
;The hog oiler not only saves time
and trouble, but also saves oil, since
much oil is wasted when the sprin
kling can is used.
i There are two distinct hinds of oil
ers on the market: The cylin.ler oiler
and th(T upright or post oiler. The
oller that does not waste oil by leak
ing or overflowing and one that oper
ates easily is one of the best invest
ments a hog raiser can make; while
the oiler that leales or clogs up with
dirt ls almost useless.
If the oiler is set up in a pince
where the hogs congregate every day,
such as the feeding place, they will
almost invariably use it when they
smell the oil.
FENCING FOR HOG PASTURES
Material Slump In Profits if Animals
Are Confined to Pens-Make
Thc raising of hogs calls for the
.fencing in of a field or two for hos
pasture, for every hogkeeper well
knows that there is a very material
slump in the profits in pork-growing
if the hoirs are kept in pens or small
runs, obtaining no food except that
given them. Of the three prime es
sentials in a hog pasture-namely
?pasturage, water supply and fence
the fence is of more importance than
most of us realize until a stiff blt of
experience sets us thinking. The hog
Jot fence, of all fences on the farm,
.needs to be built substantially and
'"pig-tight." Any hog pasture fence
.'thnt is put up hurriedly and somewhat
^indifferently is a detriment to all con
cerned-to the rest of the farm, to tho
ifarmer and to the hogs, even.

SOME DEFINITIONS OF LIFE
Not All Sadness as Some Affect to Be
lieve, but Cannot Be All Joy
"Dreams! dreams! dreams!" an
swered Lord' Beaconsfield, bending
over the fire, when the late Lord Ron
ald Gower asked him, just before the
end, how he regarded the life of tri
umph. And then, characteristically
enough, smoking a cigarette which he
had just accepted, the statesman said.
"I have not smoked since you wero
"Life," Lord Beaconsfield said to mo
that last time I was with him at Hugh
enden (wrote Lord Ronald after
wards), "life is an ennui, or an anx
iety;" and he enlarged on his text by
saying that for the self-made life ls
full of troubles and anxieties, for fear
of losing the position or the wealth
they have obtained; and fer those
born with position and wealth there
is nothing to strive for, and life then
becomes a mere bore", an ennui, and a
burden. "My idea," he added, "of a
happy future state is one of those long
midsummer days when one dines.at
nine o'clock!" Lord Beaconsfield had
left out the majority of mankind, those
who cannot afford either to be anxious
or to bo bored, and. indeed, In that
half-way state I believe the truest
earthly happiness exists.
"Life." added Lord Ronald, "when
those we have loved and cherished in
it aro taken from us, is a long sad
ness; but, thank God. we may humbly
hope that in his good time we shall
again meet with our lost and loved."
CANNOT EXHAUST THE AIR
Scientific Explanation as to Why a
. Lack of Nitrogen Need Not Be a
Matter of Dread.
A student at the University of Wash
ington, having read about making ni
trogen from the air, entered the chem
istry department and asked the pro
fessors there what would happen
when all the nitrogen had been taken
out of the air. The University of !
Washington News-Letter says that
this is what they told him:
"The atmosphere over a squaro mile
of land is estimated to contain 20.000,- j
OOO tons of nitrogen, which is enough
to furnish all the world would require
for fifty years at the present rate of
consumption. Even if that were not
so, there would be no danger, for
there's a sort of 'dust to dust' process
involved that is a safeguard in itself.
"Nitrates, when they go into the
soil, are taken up by the roots of j
plants and utilized. After the plant1
decays the nitrogen is given off, and
it returns again to the atmosphere.
"If employed in the manufacture of
explosives, when the charge is explod
ed part of the nitrate returns to the
air as gas, while some goes into sa
lution, falls to the earth and is taken
np by the plants, returning later to i
Rank and File.
He was a "rookie" on his first sentry
duty at one of the government reser
vations. The corporal of the guard
had told him what to do when the j
officer of the day appeared, which by j
rule ought to be at about half-past I
nine that night. Sentry was to no- ?
tify corporal when the officer had
passed. At ten o'clock no report from
the sentry. The corporal wanted to
know why. Much perturbed, the sen
try said he was sorry. He had not
seen the officer.
"Ks?p me posted," said the corporal
sharply. "He might bo late."
Fifteen minutes later the officer ap
peared, and this colloquy ensued:
Sentry-Who goes there?
Officer-Officer of the day.
Sentry-You're late, you are. You'll
get the devil when the corporal of the j
guard sees you.
Cocoa as Currency.
Cocoa passed as currency among
the natives of Central and South,
America at the time of the European !
conquest, and that despite a plentiful
supply'of gold. Joseph Acosta, in 1610,
tells us the Indians used "none of ?
their gold or silver for traffic in or
buy withal," and unto this day the cus
tom continues among them that in
stead of money they use cocoa. The
Aztecs of ancient Mexico also used i
"cocoa" as small change, as many as j
8,000 beans being counted legal ten
der. The value of the beans may be
judged from the fact that "a tolerably i
good slave" could be purchased for 100 j
