ABOUT FERTILIZERS. SoW Hisats to Farmers Who Are Com pIei to Use the Coneantrated FertiUsers A western correspondent writes: "Will you please tell us about the mak tg of concentrated fertilizers at home? u(an we make fertilizers out of mate ias we can get from the drug stores?" If our friend depends on the drug tores for the materials to make his sertilizers, he had better buy them al Weady mixed. Drug stores do not han dle these things in sufficient quantity toenable you to buy in large quantities at reasonable prices, and you do not want them in the concentrated form that some of these matters are sold in the drug stores. There is no doubt but that farmers canesave a great deal of money in the purchase of fertilisers by buying the materials ~Abhe market and mixing them in the portion that they may desire for ions crops. The fertilizer mann facturers will tell you that, with their improved machinery, they can mix the fertilizers more cheaply than you can. but they do not give you the advan tage of their cheap mixing. They will charge you more for the mixing than you can mix them for yourself. It has been found that the elements of plant food most generally lacking in soils that have long been cultivated in farm crops are nitrogen, phosphorus and potash. While there are other things essential to plant growth, it is found that all of our cultivated soils have enough of these things for all purposes of plant food. Lime, for instance, Is essential to the growth of plants, but almost any arable soil con tains plenty of lime for all the purpo eas of plant food direct, and yet we Sad that it is useful at times to add some fresh lime to act as a reagent, that is, to make some other things like the nitrogen available for plant food, and for improving the mechanical con dition of our soil. But while time is a useful thing in a soil that is properly cultivated in a rotation with peas and clover, and has a store of vegetable enatter in it for the lime to act upon, lime is not a fertilizer in the sense that It can be used on a dead poor soil to encourage the growth of plants. The true fertilizing agents needed are combinations in which nitro gen, phosphorus ; and potash are found in a shape in which plants ean make use of them. If you have read the former articles in this series you will notice that for the general farm crops I have not recommended the use of nitrogen. This is because we can by means of growing cow peas and clover get our nitrogen from the air in sufficient amount for most farm crops. Until we have stored in or soil eonsiderable amounts of decayed vege table matter by the use of these crops it may pay to use some nitrogen. But we should as rapidly as possible get our soil into condition to save this expense, for the nitrogen in a fertilizer is by far the most I expensive part of it, costing three 1 times what the potash costa. We can get nitrogen by the use of I cotton-seed meal, in which it is found, I In the form of ammonia to the extent of about seven per cent. We can also get it in the dried blood from the large 1 slaughterhouses. from the dried scrap I from the fish oil works, and in theform I of nitrate of soda, which has 1 per I cent. of nitrogen. This lhatform gives es the nitrogen in the most readily available form for the use of plants. But it is well to have in our fertilizer at the same time some of the organic ammonia like that in cotton-seed meal, as it lasts longer in the soil. The best form in which we can get the phos- 1 -phorous is in the shape of dissolved phosphatic rock, known acid phosphate, in which the phosphorus is found as phosphoric aid. This is made in large quantities in South Carolina and elsewhere. The best form in which we get potash is in the various salts of potash that are Im ported from Germany. It is best toget these in the conoentrated form of amrriate and sulphate of potash, rather than freight a lot of heavy salt that is of no use in the crude article. All these fertilizer ingredients you caa get by the ton from dealers in fertilizers It all the large Atlantie cities and else where. The prices vary acoording to the distance inland for the acid phos phate and potash salts and nitrate of aeds, as all are either made on the sea board or imported from abroad. By purchasing these ingredientsseparately and mixing them at horne, you can make a ton of fertilizer, containing the three elements in due proportion as desired for various crops, for from five dollars to ten dollars less per ton than the manufacturers will sell it to you, and you will know just what Iyou hae. In almost all the manufae tared brands of fertilizers on the mar Sat there is an excess of nitrogen aompared with the percentage of msh they contain, so that fot~ speid fertilizers for garden os, whieh need Sigh percentage of pot on will b6 obliged tomix for yourself if yod want to get the proper amount of potash. A good, complete fertiliser-that is, one that contains all the three desurable elements of plant food-ca be made as follows: 250 lbs. nitrate of soda. 3l lbs. cottonseed meal. -00 lbs. acid phosphate. 300 lbs. muriate of potash, Making a ton that will est at the seaboard about 02.00 for the ingredi eats. Leave out the nitrate of soda ,and the cottonseed meal from this, and you have a perfect manure for the en . ouragement of the pea and clover .rops, though it would be better In that case to increase the ont of the aeid ph hate to 1,000 en.' • Heres is rightwhere comes in the great economy of the pea and clover, Si getting this fOr you from the air.

A lentcLky Breeder Tells Hew to Care for : hem. [Extract from paper read by Arthur Harbi son. Shelbyvrlle. Ky.. at the meeting of the Kentucky Swine Breeders' association.1 "This is a very important matter in the breeding of swine, for we should remember that pr,,operly caring for the breeding boar is laying the founda tion of success inI the coming pig crop. and we may nIt1. look for success with the pig Iunlula tihe boar has the right treatment.

Feed good, healthy food, not too much corn; ground oats and ground wheat make a splendid food. Most breeders are very apt to make the mistake of feeding too much corn, simply from the fact that it is more convenient to thr-ow a few ears of corn to the boar than it is to prepare a ration of more muscle-forming substances. Corn is very good in its place, but when fed alone to breeding swine it is likely to work a detriment. A little oil meal and some roots, also buttermilk, is very good to keep the boar in a vigor ous condition. Don't let the boar get too poor, it is a very great mistake to let him get as poor as "Job's turkey." Again the service of the boar is a very important thing, and here is where a good many mistakes are made. Some will turn the boar in with the sow, or perhaps several sows, and let them run with him all through their period of heat. The boar will more than likely serve a sow six or eight times during her heat, and this is very in jurious to him. This method will soon run him down, and when run down his pigs, when farrowed, will show the effect of it. Only permit the boar to serve a sow once, unless the first serv ice is very unsatisfactory, and imme diately after service separate themand he will soon learn to get quiet. The boars should have a lot separate from the sows. If possible, have a va cant lot or pen between, so that when his services are required the sow ean be turned into this vacant lot and they can consort for awhile through the fence. This is a good plan, as scmetimes young sows become badly frightened being thrust right in the yard with a strange boar, even when they are in good heat. When they have become acquainted, which may be inside of five minutes or it may take half an hour, or more, the gate can be thrown open to allow them to come to gether. Breeders that use large boars should have a breeding box (and most any brebaer 'has iogaauity enough to con struct one out of common fencing plak) sav in this way the weight of the boar may be kept off the sow.

SIMPLE BICYCLE BRAKE. Its Inventor Claims That It Will Not Ware or Cut the Tire. The illustration represents a very simple and inexpensive brake, which by a slight modification may be adapt ed for use as a foot brake, and which is designed not to cut or wear the ma terial of which the tire is made. The improvement has been patented. The illustration represents the device sep arately and as applied on a wheel. The brake frame is of metal, and carries two flanged rollers on which is tightly stretched a rubber band, the brake be ing attached to q stem which extends NEW BICYCLF. DRAKE. .p the steering head. When the brake stem or rod is forced downward in the usual way, the band bears with corre sponding pressure on the wheel tire. The inventor has also provided a con struction by which one of the rollers carrying the band is adjustable, and may be moved outwardly, if desired, to increase the tension on the band. Scientific American. BICYCLE IN THE ARMY. It May Soon Supplant the Horse of the Cavalry Courier. The bicycle is to supplant the horse m certain branches of army service. Gen. Miles has always been its advo cate, ?nd sinse he has assumed com mand of the army he has been planning for its more general use. He is said to hate completed a book on bicycle tactics, and to be preparing a special report to the secretary of war, urging that the army be supplied with a num l.er of wheels and that they be dis tributed at the larger posts, where they might be used for the transportation cf orlers, doing away with the pres ent system of cavalry courriers. Gen. Miles is not alone in this effort. Brig. Gen. A. W. Greely, chief signal officer of the army, urges the adoption of the bicycles. In all there are over 100 bicycles now in use in the signal corps, located at the most isolated sta tions. In the military department of Texa; the horse has been discarded by the signal corps. Secretary Lamont is said to favor the scheme, as he is convinced that its adop tion will be a great saving to the army appropriation. FOR USE IN WINTER. A Novelty in Mite That Will Be Welcomed by Wheelmen. An invention has recently been made that will prove a boon to wheelmen. It is a bicycle mit, which, if it does not entirely supplant the ordinary glove, will at least be such an addition as will make winter cycling of but little dis comfort. The mit is made in some A Mrr FOR WINTR BIDING. what the form of a cornucopia, the small end of which is placed upon the handle bar of the bicycle just above the handle itself and is made fast in the proper position by a collar, as shown in the accompanying illustration. The above gives a most excellent idea of this new addition to the lists of con trivances for the comfort of wheeln.en add has proved most satisfactory in the trials given it so far. UtIisinsg reat in Boilers. The idea of having the gases leave a'boiler at a high temperature, in order that it nay be more effectively used by heating the feed water in an econ omizer, is reported by Schmidt, a Ger man engineer, to have been success fully applied by him in producing a veey economical engine by extraordi nary heating. The gases are repre sented as levihg the boiler at a t 1aper atare sufieen y -high to permN of superheating the steam tb over t0 de grees. It is thought by experts, how 6ver, that though by this action the economy of the boiler must be reduced, the question presents itself whether it is not preferable to permit of less econ amy in the boiler, in order that the en gi may be more economical--a point. c.fourse, of special practical moment. ilm re leey wdaoes.

Fatigue at the wrists may be re lieved by changing the grip, so as to catch the handles with the palm up; also by raising or olre.ri;ng the shoul 'ders, so as to change the angles at which the wrist is ',ent. This, as well as changing the grip, will relieve pain on the outer side of the arm. Some limes pain is felt at the elbow joint, ispecially when the arm is bent at the joint and the road is rough. This -, relieved by sitting up straighter and thus straightening the arm. Fatigue of the pectoralis major (chest mus cle) is almost always due to bending the back over, thus keeping the pec toralis major in a permanently con tr-acted condition. Straighten the back and the fatigue wil disappear. Pain ;n th- back from riding is due to jolt ihlg, and, generally, to leaning over. Fatigue of or pain 1 the rectus femoris is due to the double work that mus cle has to perform in c3cling. It not only strengthens the leg when the foot goes down, but pulls the knee up in the next movemen'. No other muscle dloes so much work on the wheel. It is the great "push" muscle in cycling. F'atigue in the tihialis anticus is re lieved by ch .nging the gearing of the wvheel so an to work the ankle as little as possible. It is the same fatigue felt in fast walking for a considerable time. Fatigue at the ankle joint is relieved by changing the gearing. The muscles are not drawn exactly trui to nature, but so as to show them best. --San Francisco Bulletin. NEW PNEUMATIC TIRE. A Valuable Invention Patented by a New York Man. A tire having a metallic tread secured to the tubular inflated rim, obviating the liability to puncturing the tire or other injury when the wheel passes over sharp objects in the road, is repre sented in the accompanying illustra tion. The tubular rim is secured in the usual manner to the felly, and the metallic tread, consisting preferably of a continuous strip of mild steel, is at tached to the outer part of the rim by rivets, as shown in Fig. 1, the outer sides of the tread being engaged by the sides of bands fastened in place by clamping strips. The bands extend NEW PNEUMATIC TIRE. around the sides of the rim, and are con nected by the usual lacing with the inner ends of the rim, the lacing also attaching the inner ends of the rim to each other. Fig. 2 is a side sectional view of the improvement. The rim, as will be seen, is protected by the side bands, as well as by the continuous metallic strip forming the trcad. Scientific American. Pneumatle Tires Are Popular. The use of pneumatic tires on all kinds of vehicles,, in additicn to bicy cles, seems to have been a prediction that was well founded. They are al leady being used extensively in all the larger cities on the wheels of various kinds of carriages, and the increasing demand proves the efficiency they give and the satisfaction they are giving. It is hard to reckon the difference be tween riding-for instance in a broug ham-with and without rubber-tired wheels. The comfort of the tires is be yond the most sanguine expectations of the inexperienced. The smoothness is particularly noticeable in these heavier carriages where all the scrap ing and crunching of the wheels is done away with, and the gliding noiseless ness adds tenfold pleasure to driving. New Puncture-Proof Tire. A tire stuck full of knives, tacks, etc., has been on exhibition in a Broadway store window, New York, for some time. This tire contains a layer of cork between the tubes. A cross section of the tire shows the cork to be crescent shape and one-third of an inch thick in the widest part. It is in.,losed be tween two tubes of rubber, each of which is a seamless tube. The cork lining lies within the running surface of the tires, and if the outer tube is out or torn, the inner air tube, being pro tected by the cork, remains good. It is said the practically puncture-proof quality does not seem to interfere with the resiliency of the wire. The Stomach. Not the Heart. Nothing is more common than for persons to imagine that they have heart diseqse, and they often make themselves dreadfully uncomfortable in consequence. In the overwhelming majority of cases, more particularly in young, nervous, fanciful people, the heart is as sound as a bell, but the stomach is out of order. Bicycle Styles for 1896. There are no very marked improve ments in the bicycles for 1896, with the exception of larger tubing and barrel hubs. To those accustomed to a small hub, the barrel hub looks clumsy, but it allows the use of large balls in the bearing, and thereby decreases frio. tion. "Camera" Hair from Oxen.

J., is a decidedly pretty bru nette, twenty-six years old, tall, and a pleas ing conversationalist. On the ground floor of her residence sheconducts a well-ordered candy store. When our reporter visited her store she, in response to a question, told him a very interesting story. "Until about two months ago," shebegan, "I enjoyed the very best of health and could work night and day if necessary. Suddenly, and without any apparent cause, I began to suffer from intense pains in my head, in my limbs and temples. Almost distracted with this seemingly never ending pain I tried cure after cure, prescription after prescrip tion and almost a gallon of medicine of all kinds. Nothing did me any good. In fact I became worse. The knuckles of my hands soon became cramped and the pain in my hips became more and more distressing each day. Business in the store had to be attend ed to, however, andso I was obliged, suffer ing as I was, to keep more or less on my feet, and occasionally I was forced to go out. This was the ordeal I dreaded. Each time I went out I trembled when I came near the car tracks, for my pain at times was so severe that I was obliged to stand perfectly still, no matter where I was. On one occasion I was seized in this way while I was crossing the tracks on Market Street, and there I stood perfectly rigid, unable to move hand or foot while a trolley car came thundering along. Fortunately it was stopped before it struck me, but the dread of it all lasted as long as my pain, for I nev er knew when crossing the tracks whether I would not drop to the ground in my agony and be crushed to death. My anxiety to get well grew apace, and I had about given up in despair when I saw in the Evening News one day an advertisement of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Here was something I hadn't tried before, and I lost no time in getting to the nearest drug store. There I paid fifty cents fora box of these truly wonderful, health-restoring pills. Before I had finished taking half of the pills I began to feel re lieved; the pains in my hips gradually dis appeared, and for the first time in man1 days I felt as if there was some hope. continued to take the pills, and the more I took the better I felt. 1 finished one box, got another, and now, having taken only a few of the second fifty cents' worth, I am free from all pain and as happy as the day islong. Since I began to takeDr. Williamns Pink Pills I have gained thirty pounds, and now when I cross the car tracks I don't car if there is a doses vehicles near by. It is a great relief, I assure you, and suffering hu manity has a never-failing friend in Dr. Willams' Pink Pills for Pale People. I know what I am talking about I speak from experience."
