How to break CoUfi. A practical stock'marr gives his ex perience in breaking 'colts', as follows: "A good and cheap breaking rig 13 mado with two hickory poles, three feet longer than sulky shafts and a lit tle thicker; bolt thorn, to-the axle (you need but two wheels); let the pole Droiect three feet fo thd reat of the axle; have tw.o holes bored in the ends, thus! projecting about eight inches' apart, fit to these ppjps tw.o bpws, sim ilar to ox bows, and. long enough to come within ten inches of tlie ground when the shafts are in 'proper position for diving; these; need only bo used , 1 I I...1 I'l rl wnen you navea.coii inai is uisposea fb rear up. Whenever the colt at tempts to rear up," these, bow's strike the grontid and preVerit.him from do ing eo. Always use n kicking rope-or strap; put it-on after tho colt is har nessed; it is two -ropes' fastened to ho check bit; they run over the head same asr Kimble Jackson;' check" the run then through. the 4crret.pt the. saddle and along the back , to a .point just back of the hips, where two rings eight inches apart, receives the- ropes, which are passed down Jto "tho shaft near the cross bar;, wljere they ard made fast' and so arranged, that cvcry.attcmpt to kick throws up theirhcad, so that it is impossible for tliem. to kick, and if they -fie' ddwH or fall, they cannot ; break the sliafts, they being hickory poles. The colt must go ahead or backward, and it is almost impossible to upset, the shafts being a little back of the axle, so as to have no weight on the colt's back. Drive in this way a few times on the track, then take out on the road sb as to use them to company and excitement. After being broken well in this way, then turn them out lor six weeks; then take them up and begin training to light wagon,, but never speed them till well broken, and then but a little way at a time." 31 tiles on the .Farm. A correspondent of the Buffalo Live Stock Journal writes: That- mules are much better than horses on tho farm, no one can doubt who has used them together. The mule will do more work than a horse, on less food, and is rare- ly.disaased. They will not endure .the abuse ot a hard driver as the patient horse wil, and very often, as an Irish man said, "get up on their ear," and drive the keeper from the stable. Of the many mule teams which have come under my observation, I never knew but oneinulo to die before reaching old age, and in this case, death was caused by overfeeding, in September, when he had" previously had no grain for a long ime. Some people say mules are worthless to drive on the road, but.they are slightly mistaken; One "of my neighbors has a mule team that can go their mile in three minutes, with a lumber wagon. But some of the'fancy men would say, a mule is a homely thing. There they are wrong again, for in Louisville, Ky., I saw as handsome mule teams as any man would wish to see. They were perfect beauties; one span, in particular, was coaj black,, and looked slick as kittens, they were the envy of many a man, and could have been sold for a thou sand dollars at any time. If any man wants to see good mules, let him go to Kentucky, where they make a business of breeding them. These are only a few hints upon the use of these valua ble farm-animals. Value of a Thoroughbred Bonn A breeder's circular says that "the thoroughbred pig,- in starting a herd, is chiefly valuable in breeding the com- hmon slocK. iiy using a thoroughbred boar Upon the. common sows, j'ou get a naii-oioou inai uoes very w en ior feeding purposes, which can be further improved by selecting the best sow pigs, feeding them liberally, and again getting" a thoroughbred boar and using on them, which, if practised a few years, will produce porkera equal to the pure, blood. But graded or impure males should never lie used, as the tendency is to run back to the scrub. The thoroughbred, if purchased young, can be had from $25,to S80 each. He can le "used one season and sold or castrated and fed, when he will of him felf almost or quite pay for his original cost." Nod Fences. A correspondent of the Louisville Courier-Journal writes from Scooba, Miss., as follows: In England and Ireland they have the "sod fence." I have seen it in this country occasionally;- but I think if our farmers knew its practical merits we should see it often er. Only dig two ditches four feet apart, three leet wide and two feet deep; throw the dirt from the llitchcs on the space between; beat it down un til it has some hardness, and give it enough slant to prevent "caving" and you have a fence for a lifotime. In most eases here we. need no turf or "whin-bushes as they do, for in a year the bank will be covered with a luxu riant growth of blackberry bushes, answering, eyery purpose. Even where timber is plenty, we can make this fence cheaper than almost any other. HOUSEHOLD HINTS. A Word About BreatJ. After the sponge is set over night, in the nionung'pour' upon it one pint of boil ing water, stirring rapidly so as to, pre vent scalding. This warms, the sponge throughj and the result is the same as from one hours steady kneading. Roastinu a.Turkey. If the legs and wings are'eovered with common writing paper, securely" fastened oyer them, they will be as nicely cooked mid juicy as any other part of the lowl, mid not dried or burned, aai when cooked without such protection. Batter Cakes. If any of our read era have not tried making calces from middling flour for breakfast, instead of buckwheat, they are advisedr to do so immediately, as they have a treat be fore them, i Mix with yeast the night before, 'and bake on griddles as usual The only objection which can be urged against these cakes is tlier exceeding cheapness. The material of which they can be made -can be bought for pcr( iuo ,ids., wnue ucicwneai costs three times as much, and the former is every way' best and most healthy. . .vo ounces- of common' tobacco b6iled iiagallbn of water is tised by the Ulintham street dealers lor renova ting" old clothes.

Nothipg makes a woman age more rapidly than overwork the.reason, probably, that American women fade so soon. Sun shine, music, work and sleep are the greatest medicines for women, who ueed-Vnore sleep than men. Their nerves are more sensitive, and they are not so strong, and exhaustion from labor or pleasure takes place Booner with them than men.

You , need rest then, and will pay . for the tres pass on your physical nature the next day if you disobey. A' Free Horse at Rent. During the pioneer days of Ionia, Mich., the town had an editor who was patient and long suffering. Some of the members of the church got him to give 20 toward Securing a minister; then they wanted their religious notices inserted free; then he was asked for $25 toward helping to build a parsonage, and he finally found that he was giving the church more than he gave his family. lie nevertheless hung, on. for a time longer, until one evening he went to prayer-meeting and was asked to leave his office I'or'a week and go and help clear the grounds for a camp-meeting. ' That was the last straw, and he arose up and said: "Gentlemen, I'd like to go to heaven with you. 1 know you all. You are clever-and obliging, and kind and tender, and it would be nice for us all, as a con gregation, to go in together, but I've con cluded to leave you and dodge in along with somebody from Detroit, Laper'e'or Grand Rapids. It's money, money all the time, and I've given this, church until, if my wife should die, she'd have to go to heaven barefooted." The congregation seemed to realize that a free horse was being rode to death. They let up on the editor, and pacified him. He even had a special tent assigned him at the camp meeting, and all was well. Keeping Tavern. An equestrian, traveling over an old turnpike, drew rein at midday before an extensive but dilapidated public house, heralded by a lofty sign, bearing, in faded letters, the inscription, ".Entertainment for Man and Beast." To a tow-headed urchin, swinging upon the front gate, he addressed himself: ' "Boy, will you take my horse and give him a hall peck ot oats: "Don't keep no grain." "No grain! Well, then, give my liorte some good hay." ''Don't keep nO hay, nnther.''- "No hay nor grain! On what do you feed your horses?" "Don't keep no horses." "I would like some dinner. Can I have meat and potatoes without delay?" "Don't keep no meat barrel, since we don't keep no hog." . "Then I will take a lunch of bread and milk, or bread and butter." Don't keep no butter nor milk, since we don't keep no cow." 'Tray, my lad, what do you' keep?"' "Keep tavern." Signs ofspring th lightniug-rod men re on theroad. GEO. KLEIN, Jjfo. JI. KLEIN GEO.
