IHS MAJOR'S EXPERIENCE.
' From the Detroit Fres PreM. v One; of the stanchest supporters of the ceey-Water-way from the Great Lakes to the ocean i Major "A. C. Bishop, of 715 Third Ave., Detroit, a civil engineer of wide expe rience and considerable prominence in nil profession, lie was assistant engineer on the Hudson RivetvRailroad in 1850 and hat aince conducted large engineering opera tions. He has been located in Detroit, since 1815, and has a large acquaintance among the business men and citizens of this city. Two years ago, for the first time, Major Bishop was in the hospital. For two months he Jind the best of medical attendance, but when he was discharged he was not like the ' Major Bishop of old. When asked regard ing bis health, he said: "When I had my last spell of sickness and came out of the hospital I was a sorry sight, I could not gain my strength, and could not walk over a block for several weeks. "I noticed ome articles in the newspa pers regarding fli. Williams' Ui . Pink Pills for ir? . I Pal. Pennl. which con vinced me that they were worth trying and bought two boxes. I did not take them for my complexio & but for strength. Aft er using- them I felt better, and know Major Bishop. thev did me worlds of (rood. I am pleased to recommend them to invalids who need a tonic to build up their constitutions. "A. C. BISHOP." Subscribed and sworn to before me thii eighth day of January, 1898. TftOBERT E. HULL. Jr. Notary Public, The pure, powerful vegetable ingredients in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People supply the antidote for poisonous matter in the blood and add those elements needed to build up body and brains. Many diseases . long supposed by the medical profession to be incurable have succumbed to the potent influence of these sills. Thev can be taken by young or old, being harmless in their , nature, but powerful in eliminating disease. The Foot of Knowledge.

Daniels, of the New York Cn- tral & Hudson River Railroad, has made an announcement which is of a rather start ling nature, but it is one which ought to please the patrons of that great system, and particularly those who travel on mileage books. The circular reads as follows: Mileano books, aood for 600 miles and 1,000 miles travel, are ' now on sale at all stations on the New York Central (divisions and branches) at the rate of $10 and $20 respectively. These tickets are good until used, and are available tor passage on the main line of the New York Central, and all of its branches and divisions, including the Harlem, Put nam, Rome, Watertown Ogdensburg, Carthage & Adirondack, Geneva 4. Lyons and the Adirondack: lutica to Montreal j ai- vidians.

They will be , honored for transportation by the conduct ors of all trains, including limited trains, but only to the end of the run of each conductor. .. If th holder of such ticket desires to ride beyond the run of a conductor, or on a night train, or to a point on a branch line, he nhould present his mileage ticket to the ticket agent, who will detach the proper mileage ana issue a mileage exuuaiigc unci, ' nn which haatmcre will be checked to anv sta' tion on the New York Central or any of its branch lines, thus avoiding the necessity of being disturbed alter retiring, or oi recnecK ins bAcsaire.

In order for the farmer and his fami ly to remain healthy and contented, it is imperative that everything about the farmhouse be kept clean and tidy, Indeed, the least items tending to slov enliness should never be tolerated any longer than is absolutely necessury, for such are highly susceptible to aug mentation, in which case they are very liable to breed disease and ruin. This applies especially to the swill barrel of which a stationary one, in back yard or front, is about the biggest and: summer the most dangerous (pes tiferously speaking) nuisance to be met with anywhere on the farm. Hence it is that we advocate the. use of a movable swill barrel, as shown herewith in the cut; for then, when the, warm days of summer have arrived MOVABLE SWILL BARREL. the skim milk from the dairy-room can be emptied in, and the barrel and all wheeled away to the orchard! or vard where the pigs are, Uiub removing from the kitchen door one of the great. est attractions mentionable for vari ous insects, as wasps, flies and the like The same is also very serviceable at other periods of the year for convey. ing slops and milk, as well as the wastes of the pantry and kitchen, from the house to that place where the twine are kept. This has been demon' strated by actual experience, we hav ing in mind one barrel alone thathai been in constant use for several years, and still is not much the worse for wear. The illustration requires but little explanation. As can be seen, all that is needed is an old wheelbarrow wheel two sticks for handles, a fish barrel, some wire nails of proper lenths snq several wooden strips of differene size for braces. The cost is therefore al most nothing at all, but so handy and convenient is it that it aids much toward making farm life a grace and Joy forever. In case one has a lot of calves, and they are out to pasture, so that the feeding of milk to them occurs in 8 trough, this movable Wheelbarrow barrel is just the thing for "wholesal Ing" their ration to them. Try it and see. Frederick O. Sibley, in N.Y.Trib tine: - CROPS AS MANURE. This System of Fertilising; Does Noi Brtnar In Quick Returns, But It Is Profitable. Such crops as turnips, rye, buck wheat and crimson clover assist in re ducing the plant food in the soil and making it possible for crops the suc ceeding year to utilize the plant food plowed under in the manure crop. All soils contain unavailable matter that the farmer needs. Thereare crops thai do not have the power to break down the chemical compounds existing in the soils, but there are other crops which have a partiality for some substance! which are beyond the ability of planti of a different kind. One crop may be preparatory for another, henet the plowing under of a crop is not a loss, but a gam. In England the tur nips are regarded as a renovator of tht soil, and) the seed is broadcasted ovei the surface, sheep being allowed ac cess to the turnips after they have ma tured. The turnips can feed on al most anything in the soil, and wher. eaten by sheep the gain of mutton and manure gives the farmer a profit, bul the English farmer attaches as much value to the increased fertility of his soil as he does to the product which he' markets therefrom. It may be urged, as some have done, that green crops can add no mineral matter to the soil other than it takes therefrom, which is true; but such crops render the mineral matter available for the next season. Farmers' Journal. ' ' Smear Beet Experiments. ' Experiments with sugar beets thii year have given very encouraging re sults. In the west the general rule is to pay four dollars per ton for beets containing 12 per cent, of sugar. In New York . state the yields have been from 14 to 18 tons per acre in some localities, one plot producing 26 tons per acre. The percentage of sugar has also been high, some samples giving 17 and 18 per cent, the average being 14 per cent. It is possible to grow over four tons of sugar per acre with the aid of beets. This industry is apparent ly slow to take hold on a large scale, but it is believed that in the course of time it will be a regular feature of agriculture. Dakota Field and Farm. '" Irrigation Before Planting;. Irrigation of the soil before planting is very important and profitable, and very simple. To have this it is only necessary to plow the land into ridges by throwing the furrows toward each other and run the water between the ridges. After the watef has had suffi cient time to! drain off properly the land is to be plowed, harrowed and planted. This enables the crop to get a good start, and it will stand well. There is no better Irrigation. Dakota risld and Farm. : : : 1 TRAITS OP SHEEP. The Flock Still Follows the Leader Jaat as It Did Before It Be. came Domesticated. When sheep are driven through a narrow gate say, for reckoning pur poses a very common performance is for one sheep to give a leap as if over an obstacle or across a ditch. If one gives a leap all the others to the rear of it on reaching the same spot follow it example. Wild sheep always ap point sentinels and leaders and adopt their ways of progression in the most implicit manner. The origin of the jumping habit of a flock when one gives the example is very ingeniously explained in Dr Louis ltobinson s work, entitled "Wild Traits in Tame Animals." "When sheep in a - wild state," he remarks, "dash off together among broken ground or on crowding along some perilous ledge on the mountain side their usual habitat it would be quite useless for those in the middle of the band to endeavor to see obstacles at their feet. Hence each keeps an eye on th leader, or those im mediately in front imitate his move ments. If the leader thinks a three- foot jump is necessary to clear some dangerous spot every sheep in the pro cession will take a three-foot jump; if he jumps higher they will jump higher, and so on. They carry out this im itated action with a most extraordi nary precision, even when it has to be transmitted through a long chain or different Individuals. The sheep in dustry seems to be the safest invest ment for the farmer. When other crops fail the flock can always be de pended upon. The wool crop is always sure, and when sold he has a small bank account and the flock left. What is better than sheep? Western Plow man. FOR COOKING FEED. Description of a Kettle Which Has Proved a Perfect Sncceaa and la Not Patented. I have a kettle set in a sheet iron jacket which is very handy for pook- lnsr feed for the hens. It was set in the basement part of our two-Btory hen house, on the ground, as it has no prates or bottom. The steam would fill the room and wet the walls "wring ing wet." I disliked to put it some where else, as I do not like to carry stuff, and must save all the steps I can. After some study I tried a cover rigged as shown in the cut. A tin cover was made to fit the top and a two-inch pipe attached to it and the stovepipe. A KETTLE FOR COOKING FEED. piece was made to slip over the rest so the cover can be taken oft easily. Even when the cover is not down square no steam comes out into the room. It is a perfect success and not patented. The capacity of the kettle is increased nearly a bushel, as the potatoes will cook in the steam at the top sooner than in the boiling water below. C. E. Chapman, in Rural New Yorker. AMONG THE POULTRY. Sunflower seed improves the gloss of the plumage. Introduce new blood among the poul try once a year. Give lime for growth of bone and for eggshell material. Jiuckwneat, oatmeal and milk are good for laying hens. A little cayenne pepper in the food 'often stimulates laying. Good leghorn hens may be kept until they are five years old. The usuul causes of roup are cold, .dampness and exposure. A laying hen should have her food and drink at regular intervals. - Do not winter late pullets that have failed to make a good growth. If the hens show an inclination to pull feathers, feed them salt pork. . ! In selecting fowls to winter, keep ione drake for every five ducks, a torn for every ten turkeys, on cock for every dozen hens. Keep the .hens with a reasonably sharp appetite, and they will lay more eggs which will hatch better and pro duce stronger chickens. St. Louis lie- public. Scale Is Easily Cared. Scaly legs are so easily cured that there is no excuse for allowing flocks to get in bad condition from the dis ease. Take the kerosene can into the ben at dusk, says the Plowman. Pick ip each hen and pour the oil right from the spout, from the knee toward the feet, taking care not to get any on the sklu above the thank. Some times one application will entirely kill the scale Insects. Those that still look badly after a few cayi, should be kero sened again. But little scale will usual ly survive ,the second time. If any does, scrape a little with a knife and apply kerospnt with pocket oller- t ' Onr Treatment of Spanish Captlvea.
