Fowls in spring do not sufler so much, for as the warm days come on they gradually lose relish for stimulating food, and thus wean themselves. Tho large broods do not stand heavy feeding as well as the smaller birds. All tho Asiatics, the Dorkings and Hotidans teike ou an immense quantity of fat, whether confined or at large, whereas the Spanish, Hamburghs, Leghorns and Games will lay oil" the surplus. Country Gentleman. It is the observation of the St. Louis Journal of Agriculture and Farmer that " the greater part of the soil of England has been under cultivation for a thousand years, and yet the laud is richer and the crops more prolific than they were thousand years ago. Why, then, should so many thousands of acres in many sec tion of this country have become so greatly deteriorated in productiveness in a comparatively few years? Careless and unskilled culture must necessarily be the answer." The Sheep of Thibet. The sheep of Thibet, which are very numerous, are chiefly a small variety of the fat-rumped Persian and Abyssinian, hairy, with short wool underneath, while others bear a long, soft and tine wool. It is from the latter that many of the costly Indian shawls are made. Not little of this peculiar wool finds it way to Bntish India, and is there manufactured. This breed is found in its purest state in the deserts of Great Tartary; no other variety being near to contaminate its blood. It leaches far into the interior and northern parts of Russia and much disseminated in China, Persia, Hindostan, Asia Minor and eastern Af rica as well as Thibet In Palestine it more numerous than any other breed; indeed the largest proportion of the sheep of northern Asia being of this descrip tion. Professor Pallas conjectures that th'19 character arises in the fat-rumped sheep from their feeding upon the bitter and saline plants found upon the borders of the Caspian and Black seas. And he asserts that when they are removed from the places where these plants grow the fatty excrescence becomes less. But Canfield says, the fat-rumped and fat-tailed sheep are varieties which are widely dispersed, seems more probable that they may have been produced by accident, and may also have been perpetuated by necident, design or fancy. The fat-tailed sheep very extensively diffused; it is found throughout Asia and a great part of Af rica, as well as through the northern parts of Europe. They differ, like other sheep, in the nature of their covering. Madagascar, and in some other hot cli mates, they are hair; at the Cape of Good Hope they are covered with coarse wool; in the Levant their wool is extremely fine. The proportion which the weight of the tail in some of these sheep bears to the whole catcase is quite remarkable. The usual dressed weight of the sheep is from fifty to sixty pounds, of which the tail is said to make more than one fourth part. Kussui describes two breeds of fat-tailed sheep about Aleppo; in one the deposit of caudal fat is moderate, the other sort the tail is much larger. The nnptuous fat of the tails of these sheep is accounted a great delicacy alike by the Boers and the Hottentots of south ern Africa. The Hottentots, in their primitive condition, possessed immense flocks and pursued the pastoral arts with great success. Dr. Mitchell. Something Queer About Ants. Sir John Lubbock has made out thai ants do not recognize ants of tho same nest by any sign or password, though thinks it impossible that ic the case nests containing 100,01)0 each, all the ants know each other individually. The way in which he disproved the sign password theory was exceedingly ingen ious. He took pupie from various nests and gave to some of them attendants from a different nest of the same species, so that if they were taught any sign password the ants thus brought up would know the sign of their nurse's nest, and not that of their own, except when nurse had been taken from their own nest Then he returned some of them to their own nest, somo to their nurse's nest The result was as follows: pupa) brought up by friends, and re turned to their own nest, none were at tajsked, but all welcomed. Of pupie brought up by strangers of the same species, and returned to their own nest, thirty-seven were welcomed and only seven were apparently attacked; but these seven Sir John was doubtful three cases. Of pupie brought up strangers of the same species, and put hito the nest of those strangers, none were welcomed ; all fifteen were attacked. Hence, ants of the same nest do recog nize each other, but not by any sign password probably by some smell other sense quite unknown to us. The whole series of these experiments of Sir John Lubbock's are most interesting, and we hope he will some day embody Ins studies in au essay on those highly Intnlitttiliiu) insects. Chamber'' Journal. A Ghost on a Railroad. a a is is A ghost who looks big enough and is presumably old enough to know better, spenrls his evenings on the trucks of tho Reading Railroad, just below Port Ken nedy Station, scaring the life out of en gineers and train men who may happen to pass. He has been shot at t wice. Is run over several times nightly, and has been strwik on the head with a bludgeon onoe. This kind of things doesn't dis turb him, however, for he swallows the bullets without fear of indigestion and plays roley-poley with the heavy car wheels as they are crushing and mangling his intangible body. Ten vears azo a vagrant was run over just near the spot which is now haunted, under circumstances which implied neg- lirri'ticn nn flu iiirl. of the mun in ehnrtrft ofthe locomotive. Immediately ghosts began to make their appearance by the do.en, until the fall of 1HS0, after which time it was thought that thoir wrath was appea-sod, as they came no more. On' Christmas night, however, an appara tion of unusual size attacked the nine o'olock freight train, which is managed by Engineer Charles Welch. This was tho signal for a general onslaught, and every evening since then phantoms have flitted across tho lines and otherwise made themselves felt in consequence a great many of the trains which leaves Callowhill Street Depot after dark are loaded with missiles anil weapons for use against bogies wherever they may bo found at large. Brakeman George Nelson, on the train whieh leaves Philadelphia at a quarter to eight in the evening,- claims to have had a thrillingcxperience with the ghost; it. ran away with his cap. On New Years night ho was standing on the front platform of the first car to get a whiff of fresh air, with the train steaming thirty five miles an hour. When within fifty yards of tho usual spot tho headlight s rays piercing the darkness rested on what seemed to be the figure of a man standing out in bold relief. Although it could not have been more than a few seconds before tho train reached it the time seemed prolonged to minutes. Nel son excitedly seized the bellropc, pulled it violently and in addition shrieked out to the engineer to pull up. Although he laid hold of the cord at once, ho says that it was not until the apparition was p:issed that the gong struck. Gradually tho train neared tho person, who seemed to be standing with one of his hands shading his face and the other pointing to the throbbing- engine, straining to mow him down. There was a sudden blankness, a cold blast of air which carried off his hat, and Nelson did not knovy what happened till the-conductor opened the door and told him he would catch oold. He was certain that what ho had seen was not flesh and blood. On the next night he armed himself with a large piece of iron, but tho ghost was a wily one and didn't come. On the succeeding evening, how ever, ho had a clean shot at it, and passenger on the train, who had been told of the bogie, joined him and fired two barrels of a revolver in his face, all without eQect. Tho most interestingexperienco, how ever, was reserved for Engineer Charles Welch, who has been mentioned as hav ing heralded the ghost's first appearance this season. On last Saturday night he spied it, as usual, ahead, but it looked so different from what it did on the previ ous occasion that ho thought it was a real individual and not an artificial one. In a few seconds, with great presence of mind, he had the brakes down, the steam whistle blowing and the bell ringing. He shuddered perceptibly as the train slid over the figure and then came to a dead stop. He had not sufficient notioe to stop the train in timo. "We've killed some one, Jim," said Welch sorrowfully, to the conductor, "and we ha I belter go back and pick up tho , pieces." A mournful procession proceeded to hunt for the required items but not a scrap could they find. Welch all at once remembered about the ghost and tho train sped on. Philadelphia Time. Princes in Custody. as it is In in he of or or tho Of of in by or or The Concieigerie, where Prince Napoleon was confined, lias twice served as prison for members of his family. Prince Louis Napoleon, afterward Emperor, was shut up there in 1810 when he was awaiting his trial before the Chamber Peers for his Boulogne expedition, and Prince Pierre Bonaparte was detained there m 1870 after his manslaughter the Journalist Victor Noir. Louis Napo leon, who was defended by tho eloquent Legitimist orator Berryer, received sen tence of "imprisonment for life," penalty which did not exist on tho statute-book, but which the Peers decreed "so that they might not attach the de grading punishment of penal servitude (travnux forces) to the great name Napoleon." The Prince was at once conveyed to tho Fortress of Ham, Picardy, whence he escaped in 1346. Prince Pierre Bonaparte was tried March, 1870, before a high court, spe cially constituted, and sitting at Tours. He was acquitted of willful murder, but was sentenced to pay 1,000 damage's to the family of his victim. Touching the arrest oj Princes, it may be observed that tho police of Paris have under regimes had experience in this kind business. Some of the arrests have re mained memorable owing to the intense fublie excitement which they caused, n 1748 the arrest of Prince Charles Ed ward, the younger Pretender, at the door of the old Opera House, and by ordinary police official, produced a com motion of which traces may be found all contemporary memoirs. Voltaire wrote that the TVince had suu'ored gross indignity. But perhaps tho most amusing affair of this sort was the at tempt to arrest Duke Charles of Brnns wick under Louis Philippe's reign. The Duke, having been expelled from his dominions in 1830, took refuge in Paris, and began to give trouble to tho French Government by his intrigues. After the Government had borne with him some time, it was resolved that he must leave the country, and Count do Mont alivet, the Home Minister, signed a war rant for his arrest and expulsion. But the Duke was warned of what was com ing, and hired an obscure actor to take his place, he himself retiring to the house of a friend. The actor, who had con trived a capital "make-up,'' was ar rested and conveyed totheSwiss frontier in a post-chaiso, escorted by a troop horso. All through the journey ho was treated with royal honors; but this frightened him that soon after reaching Geneva he quietly decamped Without waiting for the remittance of his fee. Meanwhile the real Duke had sent friends to intercede for him with Louis Philippe, and the King was so much tickled hearing how his Minister had been out witted that ho got the order of expulsion quashed on the Duke's promising to of good behavior London Timet.

THE DAIRY. Profesior Arnold says the points la favor of dairying are: First, adairy farm costs ten per cent less to operate than grain growing or mixed agriculture. Second, the annual returns average a little more thnn other branches. Third, I rices are nearer uniform and more re iable. Fourth, dairying exhausts tho soil less. Fifth, itis more secure against changes In the season, since the dairy man does not suffer so much from wet, frost and varying seasons, and he can. If prudent, protect against drouth. A writer in .he New York Times emphasizes the fact that the profit of the dairyman comes wholly from his good cows, and that many a dairy might l.u reduced one-half in number of its cows and the dairyman make more profit than he may have done from the whole original number, because one poor cow will not only "cat off its own head," but will cat off that of another and a better one, too, before ho has equalized the profit and loss of the keep of the two. Green and Dry Fodder. It is the populnr belief that if we could havo grass in winter, we should solve the problem of profitable winter dairying, and so the minds of dairvmen are cen tered upon the subject of ensilage to a very large extent. That successful win ter dairying necessitates something akin to the green food of summer, is a fact. But we doubt very seriously that a past ure field in winter time would bo at all desirable The seasons demand certain hinds ol food, ana while a little of one season's food may be relished and valu able at another season, it is very ques tionable if there cannot be too much of a good thing. Indeed to say it is ques tionable does not describe the situation. There is no question about it. In win ter tiio animal needs concentrated food, with a reasonable supply of water, and this supply of water can be secured from roots. In ensilage, according to ex cellent authority, all that is preser'ed is the water, and it is a pretty expensive way of saving water. Prof. Ilenrv.of Wiscon sin, says there is more nutriment in the dry fodder than there is when it is ensil aged, a fact, if it is a fact, which we sup pose may bo accounted for upon the grounds that the nutriment being in a less diluted state, the system can appropriate it without so much effort. Drying could add nothing to its nutrient qualities. But as excellent an authority as Dr. Lewes says that fodder loses nothing in drying but the water. In a dry state therefore, it contains all the most valuable parts that it possessed when it was green, and if it is desired to restore it to its Original condition, that may be accomplished by soaking it in wuter, steaming it, etc. It is claimed that cornstalks, for instance, are worth nearly half as much as the grain for feeding purposes. Now if these aro cut and mixed with bran, or meal, wet down, and placed in a closely covered box, for a day or two, the mixt ure will be productive of excellent re sults. Add to such feed a reasonable amount of roots, and the dairy cow has got ju.H as near to summer feed as it is desirable she should. In feeding for the dairy, the prime ob ject is, of course, milk, and milk-produc-ing foods must be fei. But if we feed for milk alone the cow will oon run down. She must have well-balanced food, something that contains all the elements that her system needs, as much as any other animal. The result of feed ing a one-sided food is shown in the condition of distillery-fed cows. They give milk upon this food, but they may be found covered with sores, with tails dropping off, nnd horns dropping oft. The system gets nothing from which can supply the constant waste. '1 his an extreme examplo of the ill effects of feeding a one-sided food. But if we neglect to give our cows sufficient of something to keep all parts of the sys tem in good order, while they may not show the results in as marked a manner as here stated, tho bad results are just as inevitable, and we shall lose in the end. Western Itural. Not too Much Hay. a of a of in" in of an in a of so at be It to The cow must be well fed. It is not enough to feed a cow all the hay she can eat. Generally it is not advisable to foed a milch cow all the hay she can eat. Hay is dillicult to digest, and if as much fed as the cow can eat the digestive organs will bo burdened to such an ex tent that the animal can not digest enough nutriment to enable her to yield as large a flow of milk as she otherwise could. In regard to this matter, Pro fessor L. B. Arnold says: "The slow and imperfect manner in which common hay digests is an objection to using it to the extent many dairymen do as the main food for the" dairy. It is often the boast that cows have all the hay they can eat, but it is a boast that docs not speak well for the largest returns. Hay will not allow of the best results in milk produc tion. Dried grass will do fery well; but common hay would require an amount burdensome for a cow to carry, an amount beyond the capacity of her stomach, to yield the material for a good flow of milk without drawing on her store of flesh to produce it 1'he more I study the food of milch cows, tho more urn 1 inclined to limit the quantity of hay to tho smallest amount which will uffurd a comfortable distention of the stomach, and make up the rest of the ration with food richer and more rapidly digested. It is the best way to get large and paying returns." It is not advisable to give cow all the liay she will eat even when she is fed with grain to a considerable extent. She will take in more food than her digestive organs can properly digest, and a portion will be wasted. By feed ing only enough hay to produce a com fortable distention of the digestive or gans, tho remaining digestive powei can be expended on more easily digested food, and thus enable the cow to yield larger How of milk.

Within the past two years we have frequently seen statements f parties claiming to havo been cure J of serious kidney troubles even after hope had been abandoned; but in common with most people we have discreditel them. Quite re cently, however, a number of prominent and well-known men bave come out voluntarily and stated over their signatures that the) were co npletely cured by the use of Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver Cure, Most people bave been aware that this medicine has nm unusual standing and one entitling It to be classed i4ovo pro.rletary articlei generally; but that it h id accomplished so much In checking the ravages of kidney disease is nut so generally known. Its great wcrih has been shown not only t y the cures it has effctel, but also bec mse a number of base imitations have appeared in the market, fraudulently claiming the valuable qualities of theorlinal Safe Cure. If It were not valuable, It would aot bt! imitated. The abore may seem like an ultra endorse ment of a poj ular remedy but itis not one whit stronger than tbe facts admit. What ever assists the wrld toward health and con sequent happiness, should receive the hearty endorsement of the pres find all friends nf human ty. It fs ou precisely this principle that the foregoing states ent is made and It merits the careful consideration of every thinking reader. Crtstalized the man who wean glasses. aomrrvuu Journal.

P iNJAHiK S. Hazaso, the popuiarpro prlctor of the Warwick Neck Hotel, he learned thatthe greater part of the handsome summer reldnres bd bn erected inside of admen years; and he aiv h-amed that CoL Haiard bad been a great sufferer from a chronic disease of the kidneys and bladder over Aft era yrar. the most painful form of It being s stoppage or retention ef tbs arine, wnicn was so very sever times as to disable him for his acenstomed work, and aven confine him to ths bed, whrn a surgeon's aaslst- ance would be required to rettrTe htm. Ue waa being d a i-to red a large prt of the time, but conld ft no permanent relief. At times bis suffering were terrible from sharp, cutting pains through the kidneys and bladder; and ha had suffrred so long and so s'Terriy that he bad become discouraged of getting well ajralo. especially as the doctor stated that It was doubtful If a man of hit ag with such a compttcau d disease of long standing, could be curt-d. But last summer, whra be was suffering Intensely from one of these attacks, a gentleman who was boarding at his hotel urged and persuaded him to try a bottle of Hunt a Remedy, as be bsd known of some wonderful currs effected by It. Mr. Haiard says he had no faith In It, but consented reluctantly to try it ; and af ler taking It only two days, the Intense pains and aches hsd disappeared, and be commenced to gln strength rapidly, and in leas than a week was attending to hts accustomed work, and has never had a return of the pains. Mr. Hs.ard Is over i-venty years of age, and on the th of Nov., 12, when our reporter met htm. alt hough It was a very cold and hl'Htertng duv, he waa tn the 0:ld w'th his team at work pnillng and loading turnip, aa hale and hearty a man as you could wish for, whereas last August he was unable to stand upt oversee the work then going on In this iimf field. Hum's Remedy had given htm health and strength again, and lie recommend It to his relatives and friends, several of whom are now taking It, as he conslderalt a nvt excellent medicine for all diseases of kidneys er bladder. strong roiifxa A DOL T HERB BITTERS ARE AN ABSOLUTE CURE FOR KIDNEY TROUBLES.
