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

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.
Hake compost heaps. Collect bean poks and
brush for peas. Cover the strawberries;
make a hotbed. A box, gash, manura and
oil are Deeded. Then you can start your to
matoes, egg plants, flowers, etc, rater."
There Is some doubt whether tbe wortd wiQ

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
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
(ire slimmer ruoniing Birdie Uok puss
t- of milk emt besidu the gardeji wall m
ti-ua' KlM.falleil Warble, and heard a low
ui.-w just Nide a crevice in tlie stones.
Warble w hs w niching f . t something a mouse,
jt. rd.o thought. He lu" d his imw to warn
hi- lilt's- ndt.res- to b-ep la k. But she went
on and snid:
'I Vjne, Warble, this rich new milk is hettex
than a uhkisc. CVanean kip it,"
Stulflenly M'arbleV eyert gkuuefl like twe
IwJIs of tire. 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.

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
