His tender flesh may b too rich for jxictfi bjkI tlj7efvties, but vere phTiital labor, epfiaU' in the open nlr, may bo better sustained on a pork diet than on any other meat. The bog is not more prone to di.smse than other anirnal. Hickoet comes to him only bocaom bis firotector, man, does not iuidT tand bis requirements! and delicate coiwtitu tioo.

Tbe hny, too, is boiled pre vious to feeding by svme of the best ewinc raisers. Tlie turnips can lie grown upon jtronud frfim which narly potatoes have been rog, anl thus the soil twice utilized. lta foea too small for use by man, tbe pig will lo thankful for and eat gladly, at oocn making jaicy rk st-aks for his owner and saving what would otherwise be a dead loss and waste. l'otntvs are a valuable food for nwine, A writT in the Agriimlturist sajs that be has fe 1 to bis hogs in addition to tho article alve mentioned alout WO bushels of Iples, whi'.-h he bought moe1ly Ur tlxun foj" dossert, as it were.

Then, to, the rn shiHild l shellel and fid from a dex'ent, slationary trough, and not thrown at random into u mnck of filth and mud. A hog tnted in wich a nanty way will becomo dismsed awl die, infallibly.

Jt is represented in our engraving. Tbe im proved large Yorkshire ha.s also Un found most desirable, especially wlien crtxwl with 3w Berkshire or Cheshire white. The rig IVn. Jeither L tbe hog a dirty animal when de cently treated. It Ls exposure, slovtaily sur- foundings, improper food and dirty drink that make herds of swine sicken and die off. This is becoming understood at last. The model pen is built in two parta. One end Is k'ft of bare earth for the animals to root in as they like. At the other is a raisci floor, elevated eight to ten inches from the ground Here the hogs have a dry, covered place to sleep in. The floor is made of strips nailed on a quarter of an inch apart, so that the moisture may run through. Upon this is placed straw. Rooting into straw stacks and neaping together under them in piles upon raw another overheats hogs. Then, the next thing, they will be exposed, unprotected, to the northerly blizzard, steaming hot as they are. When they take oold and die it ts a vis itation of Providence. The hog must also have his drink of clean, pore water. He is given every abomination B his twill, from the soapsuds of the week's wash to the contents of soured tomato-cana. Tovl water ls aa hurtful to hogs aa to horse r eows, and the sooner farmers learn thin fact the bettor. The bog drinks impure water because be is good-natured, and doexnt refuse anything; but it is thia very thing which introduce the true hog-cholera germ fctto him, Then when this diaease attacks kirn, and the herd dies by the hundred, once Bore it to a visitation of Providence. In order to facilitate cleanliness in rwfne- keepuig what is called a "dumping pig- -i trough" has been lately Invented It ia fixed in the edge of the pen and made to tip oos wardlymaato deposit outside the pea tM Kfusp accumulating. i lL'iue. it J . irali Toe mode) fanner in the north always has an ice boose.

There are few locaiitiw in Europe where the honey bwj prospers. Eu rope imports boney largely from our tastexn states, while California supplies Australia.

At the Ixindon agricultural fair was recently displaved Amorican honey in tbe comb, which was awarded the prize over all the Europmn exhibits February. The lively Kara! New Yorker gives the following valuable directions in little far the month of February: vVelL, you may now prune your trees, grapevine, curranta, shrubs, etc., if it haa not been dooe before. Be careful not to prune shrubs which will bear their Sowers upon last yearN wood like the lilac, mock orange, magnolia, Crataegus, boneysurkle, etc. Collect all the manure you prosibty can.

X 1 Vi CAT AVT RATTLKS.VAKK. One day a poor, half frozen kitten came to Birdie Granger's houe. Birdie had no brothers or sisters to play with, so 1h took the starved little gray cat in and made it wel come. She. warmed it and fid and gave it a good bed to sleep In. I'nder such kind core the stronger grew fat and sleek. By tlie time it w-as grown it Nf-nnwi the most wonderful rat that ever was. Birdie named her jt Warble, liecauso it pumxl so loud. WortJe and Birdie were inseparable friends. If you don't know what "inseparable"' means, look for it in the dictionary. ,lfHikirg up every won! you don't know; t)e meaning of is a very pond -exercise for loth young jssiple and old. The cat folkiwed Biinlio evcrywliere. It was very large and strong, as big as a small flog. For a cat, it was astonishing how in telligent WnrlJe was. It had many cunning ways, and Birdie's jsipi taught it to perform tricks like a dtig. I'ajio, would clasp bis luimU and put Ids arms out in front of tlie cat as it stotsl upon the rug. Then he would kv: "Jump, Warble!"1 And Warble would jump through his arm? and out over his lmniU ns if it understood just whnt was menait ; which to le sure it did. If Warble was watchin; for a mouso at a hole awl nnjtxly cain niir it was accus tomed to rais its iw as n sign to the person to kwp lck and not mukeanoLse. Warble did so many cute thing-- tluit Binlie called him her fdr-r-u f nt. But (Jin tiny Warble dkl Binlie a service which she will never forget as long as she lives. It is not easy to M-e Imiw a cat could save a Uttk- girl's hie, but that wus what Wh-M did. Li-tn, ami yoi shall know how.

He wavl hLs tail back and forth in fury. He looked like a tiger alsiut tc spring. He raided his jw again to warn Binlie (Jr. But she was determined to see what was disturbing bT cat so, and tfk several steps forwiinl. She hfstrd a rattling in the grass. Warble leaped into the air at tlie nune inomont, and came down upon th s-pot w here she brd the rattling. There wai more rattling, and a tremendous hissing and lashing and noise. The girl was frightened and screamed nkrnd. Her mother and gromlmother ran to her Id an instant. They saw with bfirror the cat dragging a great rattlesnake out of the grass. The child had been almost upon it Warbl had set his strong, sharp teeth into tho liacfc of the reptile's neck ivnd broken its spine. The pretty, innocent little girl did not kuow bow near to death she had Urn. But hoi mother did, and canght her up in her ormi ami almost cried over her. Ls not that a good cat-ond-fmoke story f How to llit no Vgn In u Hot tie. A writer in the Bund New Yorker telk the young folk how tbey may jmrform th magic feat of putting an egg into a bottle. Like nwny othtx tilings, it is easy enough wwn you know how. This is the way it if done; Hoak a fnJ egg for several days in strong vinegar. The acid of the vinegar wiL' eat the lime of tlie shell, so tlint w hilo the egg kioks the same it will be soft and capable ol compression. Melt a bottk with tho neck a third Kraaller than the egg. With a Uttk care yon will have no trmilde in preming tin latter into tbe bottle. Fill the bottle ludf fut of limo water, and in a few flays you w ill have a bard she.!kl egg in a bottle with a neck a third smaller tluin Uw egg.
