The near approach of the Seventh Amer ican Fat Stock Show is heralded by the an nouncement of the annual meetings of the live stock organizations of the country. The political canvass lias not detracted from the interest in the show, and the prep arations made for the exhibit of iss4 indi cate a larger and better collection of stock than has heretofora graced the ExjK'siTion Huilditig. The advocates if the several beef breeds of cattle have very properly decided to abide by the verdict of the American Fat Stock Show, so far as relates to the coin parative merits of the beef breeds f ir the most economical pnxluction 'if beef of the best quality. The Importance uf making an earnest effort to insure the exhibition of the best obtainable specimens of the several breeds Is duly appreciated by all interested in re taining and Increasing the popularity and prestige claimeu for the favoiites. There are many millions of dollars at stake in the verdict of the American Fat Stock Show. All tne appliances of the skillful breeder and feeder of the several beef breeds of cattle are directed to tlie most economical production of beef of the best quality. The practical Jes.ns of the Fat JSt.x k Show have been of incalculable A Season of Low Trice. The late weather viith which Nature nv. eraged our cool summer has ripened a crop of corn that is probably the largest yield of that productive cereal since the beauti ful tropical plant was first seen by white men upon these shores, The corn-fields of savage husbandry stretched along the river bottoms and valleys, where the plant could be fertilized bv tlle fish that swarmed in the waters. Now the crop waves upon millions of acres almost from ocean to ocean, and affords surplus of food that in its varied forms of pork and beef ministers to the wants of half the civilized world. The corn crop of the present vear mav reach '.',0(10,000,(1110 bushels; it will certaiiilv ex ceed l,."i(O,0iN).iiii0 bushels. It comes 'w ith an almost unprecedented crop of wheat; great crops of oats, rye, barley, potatoes and mim r vegetables, so that while we have an ubundance of fooa fanners must submit to perhaps the lowest prices of the century. The" hay crop In Massachusetts was a very sin rt one. The secretary of the H. mi d of Agriculture who has reports from all parts of the state, estimates the hay harvest at two thirds of an average crop. On old fields it fell so low that it was scarcely worm tne cost oi tne Harvest and many larmer s narns are unit empty. A large part of our fanners are producers ol milk for market; nearly all tiie remainder make i uttter, very tew are keepers of .sheep. m UK pnxiucers are great purchasers oi corn and shorts; these farmers will have ample compensation for their scant hay mows in the reduced price of meal and mill prod- nets. Our few shepherds' may have fat siieep ana "meal mm us" tit a reasonable cost for grain. At present it looks as though potatoes would not my a profit to the patient husbandman. All over the state is an enormous crop of cabbages, more than can be eaten by the people with in reach, during the present season; these must be fed to cattle, sheep and hogs. Ap ples will be abundant and of line quality; it is tu be hoped that the export demand will help their prices. It is a season of plenty, and if ju ices are low the poor w ill lie glad and thousands of men who in these dull, hard times have little work and small pay may easier keep the wolf of want from the door. . I Apci'MiU'iits with Iiii'iilmtiu. Experiments with incubators of 10 dif ferent makers have been tried by the edi tor of the Vhicnijii Poultry AVtyV, with the following reported results: That the proper heat is 10',' the first w eek, and 10U till the nineteenth day, when it should be 101. That when the heat is kept too high, the chicks dry in the shell at the time of hatching. That chicks w ill come out under a low temperature, but do not absorb the yolk properly, and are consequently weak. That the higher the temperature the more moisture is required. That turning the eggs twice a day is sufficient. That they wfli hatch when turned only nee a day. That fresh eggs hatch sooner than those partially stale. That the eggs from Asiatics do not stand, or rather reniiire, as much heat for Incuba tion as some others. Uiat a good warm bath to an enfeebled chick just from the shell, is highly bene tidal. i nat no sprinkling oi eggs is necessary during incubation. i nat eggs lroui confined fowls are not always reliable for hatching. i nai eggs are injured tor hatching iiur- poses, to a certain extent, by shipping long instances. That badly shaped eggs, though some times hatching, are not reliable. - Wise Ciiiiiii i-ti. ut rat. A lady in Norwich concluded 'that fier three cats were more than the household needed, and passed an edict of death on two of them an old cat and her kitten. The question of the manner of death was settled and the chloroform was pun-based. Days passed after the chloroform was in the house before the executioner could muster courage to exec ute the sentence. To facilitate matters the lady thought that some laudanum added to the cat's milk would produce a stupor that would make chloroforming more easy. The drug was put in the milk aii'l tendered the old cut. She tasted the food, cast her eyes suspi ciously about l,er, ;m, refused to eat. The kitten rushed to the dish to partake of the milk and was violently knocked away by the old cat, who took a corner of a mat anil covered over the dish to hide it from the kitten and prevent it from tawing the "medicine.'' The lady could not beliee it possible that the act was. intentional on the part of the cat, and uncovered the dish and again tendered the milk to her. She again knocked the kitten from the dish and cov ered it over more carefully than before. This repetition of the protective act gained the god w ill of the lady, and she gave up Killing me cuts. i'tc uncut liiijistcr. THE McCABE STORES : LAMPS!
