BOXES FOR POTATOES. Figures and Pictures Representing Their Size and Form. Boxes for shipping potatoes are made of rather thin and light boards, strengthened by galvanized hoop iron at the corners. Fig. 1 represents such a box in the form of a cube, measuring 14 inches each way inside, which will give a heaped bushel measure if even with the top; or if our correspondent wishes a rounded appearance to his po tatoes, he may make the boxes half an inch shorter (or 13>< inches) at the top. The measure of a heaped bushel is 3,748 cubic inches, and the box meas uring 14 inches each way will have a capacity of 2,744 inches, or within 4 cubic feet of the full measure, which is fio. 1. sufficiently correct for all practical pur poses. These boxes will be small enough to place in the wagon for con veyance to market. But if a different form is needed, either for more convenient handling or for fitting the wagon box, the form may be as shown in Fig. 3, or more ob long in shape, with the handles at the ends. These handles are mere ly holes of the right form cut through the sides. They may be 13 by 10 inches and 13 inches deep, which will give the 3,748 cubic inches in the heaped vessel. Any other form may be chosen by first multiply ing the two adopted sides together, and the third side accurately ascertained by fig. 3. dividing 2,748 by this product For ap ples the boxes need not be so strong as for potatoes, and may have slatted sides, but potatoes being much heavier will need the whole boards, which, however, may be thinner. The only opening will be an inch or more at the bottom for the dirt to pass ‘out in car rying. If these boards are sawed the right width at the sawmill it will save labor in making them. A heavy coat of crude petroleum will add to their durability.—Country Gentleman. POULTRY PICKINGS, The hen’s second year is the most profitable. Guineas are great layers and their eggs are rich. Early hatched chickens bring the best prices and the most money. When the fowls get too fat an exclu sive feed of oats will reduce them. Thorough whitewashing inside and out will aid in killing out the lice. Damp quarters and stagnant water often prove fatal to turkeys and chick ens. There is no advantage in hatching out goslings until grass gets a good start. Properly fed a duck at nine or ten weeks old should weigh four pounds, a chicken two pounds. Bantams may be a thing of beauty, but for practical poultry keeping for profit generally they are a nuisance. The best cross for sitting hens is a vigorous pet game cock with good part ridge Cochin hens; this also makes a good table fowl. The early chicken is the largest and strongest, and will never be overtaken by the ones that are hatched out late; push the early hatching. Turkeys, ducks, geese and guineas can be hatched in the incubator as well as chickens, and can be raised in q brooder. Cracked wheat or corn makes a bet ter feed after the chickens get old enough to eat it than either fed ground fine and made into a mush.—St Louis Republic. Neglect of the Orchard. Nothing is starved and abused like the apple tree. Forgotten till fruit ing time, the land where it stands is stripped of two crops of hay and then pastured. If the fruit is not abundant and fair the owner denounces “the whole orchard business,” (just as if he had paid it some attention), and determines to neglect it more than ever. He forgets to reason that anything else so neglected would not make half the returns he gets from the apples. In the interest of common sense, if one cannot devote time in summer for feed ing and cultivating this most regal fruit, let him at least set the men to covering the ground with manure be fore the busy season begins.—Farm Journal. Little and Biff Farming. L. M. Stanton, of Dalton, Mass., writes: I raised last season on less than three acres of land as follows: Fifteen bushels of green peas, one of white beans, ten of potatoes, eight of popcorn (ears), fifty of red beets, twenty-five of onions, seventy-five of carrots, 600 sugar pumpkins, 1,000 win ter squashes, 1,000 horse radish roots, fifty dozens ears of sweet corn, 3,000 cabbages, six bushels parsnips, large quantities of sunflowers, one bushel of Rochester rose potatoes from one pound of seed. I believe there is big living from a small farm propelly man aged. BLINDNESS IN HORSES, ' Home of the Carnes ot Kye Troubled and How to Remove Thom. Velma Caldwell Melville writes to the Orange Judd Farmer: Avery common cause of blindness, especially in young horses, is overwork or hard driving. The same causes sometimes affect old horses similarly. When fear is entertained that anything of the kind may occur, perfect rest should be allowed and easily-digested food given, if the overdoing has been long con tinued, the chances are that nothing can prevent the result, but in any case the following treatment, recommended by a practical veterinary, can do no harm: Give two or three times a day, six drops of Fowler’s solution of arsenic on a little meal or in a small quantity of water, or give this remedy in the morning and a dose of nnx vomica in the evening, continuing the treatment for some days. Growths and ulcera tions on the eyelids should receive prompt treatment. Ulcerations along the edge of the lids should be treated externally with causticum—five drops of the tincture to one ounce of water. Another treatment recommended is an ointment made of two grains of red oxide of mercury and one drachm vaseline. For thickening of the lids, give inter nally calcarea carboniea. Where granulation on the inside of the lid causes the difficulty, a lotion, made of tannic acid, one-half drachm; glycerine, one ounce, may be applied to the af fected part. Callous formations may sometimes yield to the mercury oint ment, mentioned above. If this does not avail, a lotion, made of ten drops of nitric acid and one ounce of wa ter, should be applied night and morning. Little growths of polypous nature sometimes come on either the eyeball or the eyelid. These may be removed by the use of delicate scissors, but the bungling, unskilled hand bet ter not attempt it. A touch of caustic —and barely a touch, too—is usually all that is needed after the operation. To prevent the possibility of inflamma tion some mild wash may be used, and aconite and belladonna given in case of fever. Do not handle the eyes roughly; they are too delicate in their mechanism and too valuable to be trifled with. For worms in the eye, call in a skilled veterinary. Some of the symptoms which may lead one to suspect their presence are inflamma tion in one eye, the membrane that joins ball and lid being much blood shot, transparent front cloudy looking; lids kept closed because light causes pain. Close examination may reveal a worm somewhat resembling a piece of white sewing thread an inch long floating in the aqueous humor. This should bo promptly attended to, or the loss of an eye will probably result. A little care of the eyes will prevent many of the diseases which detract from an animal’s worth and comfort. Dust is a fruitful source of eye trouble, and many of its damaging conse quences may bo averted by gently cleansing the eye with cold or tepid water after a long journey. Of course the animal must first cool off if cold water is used. Where hay is kept di rectly over horses the dust and fine particles are continually getting into both eyes and lungs, doing much dam age. DEWBERRY CULTURE. A Trailing Blackberry Which Usually Yields Satisfactory Returns, Bulletin 84 of the Cornell University experiment station is devoted to the dewberry, and from it we reengrave the Lucretia, which is considered the best variety. Dewberries (a trailing form of blackberry) have been known for many years, but it is only within a short time that they have attracted much attention. A young man after serving in the civil war settled in West Virginia and found dewberries growing wild, which he removed to his garden. In 1875 five plants from these were dis tributed among friends, and from these five the present cultivated stock of Lu cretias has sprung. It was named Lu cretia for Mrs. Lucretia Garfield. The five original plants are still vigorous and fruitful. There are several varie ties of dewberries, but none are so val uable as the Lucretia. The fruit is early, of large size and attractive in appearance, and its reclining habit of CLUSTER OF LUCRETIA DEWHERRIES. growth makes it valuable, as it affords opportunity for winter protection. It is very fruitful. The canes and lower sides of the leaves are very thorny, which makes picking vcrv unpleasant, but proper pruning and mulching largely overcome this. Trel lising is often resorted to,and for small plantations can be easily adopted, but for field culture it is not deemed advis able. It is usual to plant about four feet apart each way and cultivate until thcnew canes get so long as to prevept it. The old canes are removed any time after fruiting, but if trellises are used the young canes are not tied up until the next spring. In the north it is well to protect with light covering during Winter. When the plants are allowed to lie on the ground cut them back to three or four feet long in the same manner as blackberries or raspberries, leaving only four or five canes to the plant. A mulch is often placed under the plants to keep the berries clean and to keep down weeds.—Orange Judd Farmer. PROFITABLE READING. It Is said that there has been but one thunderstorm in Arizona in fourteen years. The Druids held many plants sacred, as, for instance, vervain, selago, mistle toe and, among trees, the oak and the rowan. A HUNDRED AND TWENTY-SEVEN years ago England seized the first eight bales of cotton raised in the south and de clared its production should cease. The first form of bridge was that of two struts hinged at the apex, and pro vided with means by which they could be made to move alternately one before the other. Blonde hair is said to be the finest and red the coarsest. A German in vestigator figures it out that a blonde bead has 140,000 hairs; a black 103,000, %nd a red about 90,000. Diamond dust, which has the appear ance of gray mud, is made by pulveriz ing chips in an iron mortar and grind ing the particles with an agate mortar and pestle to various degrees of fine ness. Tint Mennonito German colony in Irving Lane county, Ore., received an addition of twenty members in one fam ily which arrived there a few days ago —mother and father of middle age, and eighteen robust children. They came from Marion, S. D. SAGE AND SAVORY. As fervor waxes strong it becomes ardor. Experience ripens in the field of en deavor. One cannot show displeasure and hide chagrin. Extremes meet when the cynic en counters a philanthropist. Effort finds congenial companionship when it meets with approval. De who would better his circumstan ces must improve his opportunities. It is essential that ability be marked. It might be lost sight of in the crowd else. Because, speech has failed it does not follow that the mind must needs be bankrupt. One trouble with the matrimonial match is that young people are too apt to make light of it. It is safe to say that he who nurses his wrath docs not draw on the milk of human kindness for the sustenance.-- Edgar Leroy, in Detroit Free Press.
