It will pay well to run tho mower over the meadows and cut down the weeds before they seed. There are daisies, ragweed, goldenrod, and other flowers that are not in their proper place among tho grass, and all now maturing seed for seven years' weed ing in the future, as tho proverb goes. These should be destroyed at once, and it will be a small job to do it.— American Farmer. FEED, IF YOU WANT EGOS. Do not bo afraid of the feed if you want eggs. A poor feeder is ncvor a good layer. Again, not what is eaten, but what is digested and assimilated is what tells in the egg basket, so that everything which tends to better diges tion tends toward better roturns in eggs, and indicates that plonty of shells and grit should be furnished, and if possible charcoal, which absorbs the gases, sweetens the crop, and many times prevents an attack of indiges tion.—Amerioan Agriculturist. SHOEING NONSES. The greatest care i3 necessary to so shoo tho horso that tho relative posi tion of the leg to the foot in the nor mal stato should be maintained, says an English veterinarian. Tho bearing of the shoe should be level all around. If heel or toe, the inside or the out side of the foot, wero too high or low, the relationship of the limb or leg was disturbed—in fact, the whole mechan ism of the limb was thrown out of gear. Unequal however slightly occasioned, would surely end in serious damage to the limb, and among tho froqugnt results of such treatment is permnnent injury to the coffin bone. Contraction of tho heel, ho maintained, was not an active dis ease, but a passive condition jlne to the horse easing his feet so as to mini mize the pain felt at his heels from bad shooiDg. Ho had little faitli in mechanical arrangements for widening contracted heels. "Shoo tho horse," ho remarked, "so that tho bearing stirfaco is properly maintained at the heel, and expansion will follow as a natural consequence."—Now York World. CELEKY CULTIVATION. Celery planted in beds or rows will need frequent cultivation. Tho culti vator run between the rows and the uso of tbo pronged boa between tbe plants will be all tbo cultivation needed. Tbis work should be done once a week. Do not allow the ground to crust over. When the weather is hot and dry it will form a thick, bard crust, which will stop all growth. Celery planted in beds will require still greater caro. Tho narrow steel boo or tbo narrow celery rako will do rapid and first-class work in tbo hands of a competent man. Celery requires a largo amount of moisture, and one way to get it is by frequent cultiva tion ; tho nest is by giving tho beds a generous watering. When tbe plants need water give an abundance. Water in the cool of tho evening. A hose attached to a barrel drawn by a horse will quickly put it on without much loss of water. When the small beds are to be watered, a watering can will bo all that is needed. In tho editor's experience watering once a week is enough. Tho long, green celery-worm that feeds on the leaves shcfnld bo cut in two with a pair of clippers. In the dry seasons they become very numer ous, and will eeriously injure the plants if not taken in time. Tho cel ery should not bo earthed up during hot weather, J£eep the soil looso and the plants growing. The middlo of September is plenty early enough to give the first earthing up. Tho self blanching celery will need tho earth drawn up to the plants about the 10th of September. This celery comes into market in the early tall. It is quite delicate, and is hard to keep af tor it is once blanched.—Baltimore American. WINTER DAIRYING. The chief aim in winter dairying, writes John Gould, of Ohio, in the American Agriculturist, is to get all the milk possible between the last of October and the first of the following June, and for that purpose the cows calve as nearly as may be in Septem ber and up to the first of November. I have unusual opportunities for selecting choico cows from tho "springer" droves that are centered here for shipment to New York and Philadelphia, so if a cow goes wrong her place is supplied at onco with a promising cow selected from hun dreds. Tho aim is to have tho dairy of somewhat uniform size, and all must answer in full to tho dairy form and type. When tho cows come into the dairy thoy aro given a little grain with soil ing crops, like sweet corn and millet, or oats and peas. I begin to stable tho cows early, by the tenth of Oc tober certainly, and if there is cold and disagreeable weather, such as is frequent "right off from tho lake," they are kept in for two days, or un til the weather is warm. A cow must not bo allowed to shrink in tho fall, from either lack of feed or chilling rains. By the tenth of November the cows are practically in winter quarters. A.bout the twentieth the silos are opened, and, as a rule, from Thanks giving Day tho cows are left in the stalls until Easter Sunday, often three or four weeks later, according to tho weather. The stable is light, very dry, well ventilated, never freezes, and tho cows aro tied in pairs with halters in half box stalls, and in every way made as comfortable as possible. As soon as the habit of eating in tho fields can be changed to stable life, the oows are put upon two foede a day, all that they will eat up clean, and the re6t of the day or night ie given to food digestion and assimila tion. This is found by far the ben( I method. Milking is the first thing iu tbo morning, then feeding. The food for the cows consists of twenty-Ave pounds of good silage, two pounds of wheat "seconds," and usually a pound of oat dnst; if not tho latter some other grain to tho amount, making a total of threo pounds for eooh of the best milkors, and a little less to the others. As soon as the silage is eaten, a lock of hay, two or three pounds for eaeb, is put into the mangers, and needed time given to eat it. About two hours after the morning feed, tho cows are watered. Tho water is in their mangers, and the troughs are fitted with covers, so that they cannot lift them up at will, as it is not well for the cows to take seventy-five pounds of water into their systoms immedi ately after eating, as they would do. The cows immediately after eating lie down and chew their cuds for an hour or more. Then they are watered and the troughs left open for the day, so that any cow can drink as she may like after tho "first drink." The stables aro cleaned in the morning, and the trenches sprinkled with road dust and thon partially filled with tho fresh, long manure from tho horse stalls. This combination makes a good ab sorbent and deodorizer. At night af ter milking, the feeding is repeated, and wheil the cows are looked after towards bedtime, tho water troughs are again opened for the night, some dry sawdust is thrown along tfio heel planks, and tho 6tables aro shut up for tho night. In building tho stable, whilo very economical in cost, tho idea was to givo each cow plenty of space, and so eaoh oow has 640 cubic feet of stable. Another thing was the avoidanco of what might be termed "hothouse" conditions, and so sunshine was sought. It comes in on tlireo sides of the stable duriug the day. The tem perature of the stable is maintained as nearly ns possible at forty-live degrees. Tho water is not warmed, but is kept in a closo iron tank in tho stable and pumpod every day from a deep rook well, and so does not vary much as it runs into tho troughs from fifty de grees. Of course tho cows have good beds of straw and aro carded now and then, but they are given enough free dom so that tliey can perform .their own toilets fairly well. I am not a believer in tho high feeding of con centrated grains. Tho individuality of the cow is a thing that is born with her to do a certain performance, and feeding to croate a production beyond born individual capacity has nover been accomplished except in a limited way, and then has cost moro than the returns from it wero worth. The great horse Directum eats no moro oats than a "plug," and no amount of oats will get speed out of the latter. It is the same way with cows. FABM AND GARDEN' NOTES. Nothing truer than that hogs like "roots." Don't forget to savo the best field anil garden seeds. If you have no orchard set out at least a few fruit trees. Commercial prosperity has much to Jo with tho horso market. Tho sow should be left quiet a day or two after slio has been servod. Now get rid of all poor scrub ani mals before they eat thoir heads off. A very largo litter of pigs is gener ally to their detriment in quality or size. It is suggested that sweet potntoos may be dried in tho samo manuer as fruit. It is not well to raise colts and mules together, bccauso tho mules lord it over the former. Exerciso will do tho very little pigs good ; give them range as soon as they are able to toddle. As long as sho will prove serviceable keep the sow which has proved hersolf to bo a good mother. Extra fat sows will not breed so surely as when their systems are in a less feverish condition. Darkening tho rooms where nests are placed tends to prevent tho fowls from eating their eggs. A little honsy heated and dropped on bread is said to restore voice and strength to sick canaries. Destroy all poor and worthless fruit as soon as it falls from the trees, or it will furnish a harbor for many insect enemies. Pick off the faded flowers and dead leaves from your plants, if for no other reason than that they injure the appearance of the plant. Much soed is wasted by letting it remain where grown after it is ripe by falling into the ground. And it is al ways tho first and best that falls. When only enough food is given to support life there can be no profit, as profit only comes from what is con sumed anil appropriated above tho lifo sustaining point. Do not water newly-potted plants too freely. It is best to givo a liberal quantity of water at the time of trans planting, and then not water again uatil new growth starts. Seed of tho nasturtium may bo sown at intervals throughout the en tire year, thus giving new plants at all times. They make a very pretty plant for tho windows. Do not allow withered flowers to re main on tho plants unless you wish the seed. They should be picked as soon as they show signs of withering, as they aro a great drain on the vi tality of the plant. Have tho strawberry beds clean, cultivate well that a good vigorous growth may be made before the ground froezes. Then be ready to cover lightly with marsh hay or other litter free from weed seeds. Tho garden plat should be cleared of all weeds and rubbish and plowod this fall. If planted in rows it oan be plowod in strips as the crop is liar vestod—another factor in favor of planting in rows rather than beds. HOUSEHOLD AFFAIRS. TO ri.BAN BLACK RTBnONM.

TO PBBVKNT FLANNEL MIBINKINO. A good old Scotch housewife says that her flannels never shrink, and it is because she washes them in cold water. She puts them in clenu, cold soapsuds and washes them directly; then sbo puts them through a second suds, and rinses them in cold water and hangs them out to dry without wringing them at nil. Sbo never washes flannels on a rainy or cloudy day, but always waits for sunshine.— New York Advertiser. LEFT-OVER STEWED TOMATOES. If. as often happens, you haven lit tle stewed tomatoes left over from din ner this is a nice way of using them : Boil two-thirds of a cup of rice in two oups of water (or steam it in the double boiler) adding half a teaspoon of salt at the timo you pour the boiling water onto the rice. Cook until soft, which will be in a half or three-quarters of an hour. Remove tho cover and stir the rico carefully with a fork to let tho steam escape and dry off tho rice. Heat tho tomatoes which were left, season them quite highly with salt and pepper, using a little cayenne to highten the taste, add to the rice a tablespoonful of butter, stir carefully in, and when melted pour over the tomatoes and stir that also into the rice. Serve at once as a vegetable and you will be surprised to And it so good. —New York Advertiser. COOKING BANANAS. Cooked bananas make delicions rto3- serts. As fritters, they aro excellent. Sliced, fried and sprinkled with pow dered sugar they are good. Mado into a pudding by slicing them, plac ing in a pudding dish with alternato slices of sponge cake, the whole being soaked with beaten egg and baked, they aro not to be despised. Pre served bananas are also delicious. Boil togethor a pound of sugar, a half pint of water and the juice of ono lemon and one orange. Skim this and when it is syrup-like putin six peeled bananas sliced in two. Cook for about forty minutes and servo cold. To bake bananas loosen the skin so that tho fruit may be slipped out, but do not take it out until after tho baking. Bake for half an hour. Then remove tho loosened 6kins and cover with a sauce made by boiling half a cup of sugar and half a cup of water five minutes and adding a teaspoon cf butter and tho juico of half a lemon.— New York World. THE SERVANT OF SMALL THINO*. Thoro is a prospect that, boforo wo are much older, nearly all our house keeping will be dono by machinery. Not only by special machines for spe cial purposes, but by great co-opera tive machinery for tho whole house keeping. But tho faithful housekeeper is quito sure that there is one servant who will never be supplanted—tlio servant of small things. The servant, paid or unpaid, who picks up tho trifles every one else drops, and puts away the articles every one elso for gets. The servant who carries up and down stairs odd cups and glasses and spoons; who finds overshoes and elates and echoolbooks and hats; who gathers the scattered playthings and discovers the misplaced book or sew ing ; who makes ready the chair and tho footstool for tha coming occu pant, and who takes up all the dropped stitches, moral and material, in tho family life. Thero may arise housekeeping ma chines, big and little, working with marvelous skill and accuracy. Hut until a method is discovered of put ting a heart as well as hands into them, of giving them a soul as well a* a body, it is certain that the sphere of the servant of things c.»u never bo perfectly filled by such con trivances.—Harper's Bazar. nOCSEHOLD HINT 3. After washing never wring worsted dress goods. Shake them. Soak mildewed clothes in butter milk and spread on tho gra33 in tho sun. Acid phosphate will remove ink stains from the hands when every thing else fails. Milk, applied once a week with a soft cloth, freshens and preserves boots and shoes. Canned sardinos carefully browned on a double-wire gridiron and served with lemon are appetizing. One of the easiest ways of "taking cold" is to drop asleep without an ex tra wrap over the shoulders. , No receptacle for soiled clothing, even if handsomely deoorated, should be kept in a sleeping apartment. These are days when extra cara should be taken to keep tho feet per fectly dry. A fresh pair of stocking should be used every day. Canned tomatoes are more delicious baked than stewed. About ten min utes before removing from the oven spread buttered bread-crumbs over tho top. Whiten yellow linen by boiling half an hour in one pound of fine soap meited in one gallon of milk. Then wash in suds, then in two cold waters with a little blueing. Calicoes, ginghams and cliambrays cannot bo properly washed with the white clothes. They need a much quicker process, and the long delays of an ordinary washday would ruin them. Two uses of eggs are not generally known or appreciated.

Highest of all in Leavening Power.— Latest U. S. Gov't Report T Royal ABMUITFIV PURE A*» of Fall*. ProfcMer .T. W. Spencer nays tli»t ♦ho first conjecture as to tho ape of Falls was made by Andrew Ellioott in 1790. Ellioott believed tbo falls to be 55,000 years old. About 1841 Lycll estimated the ago of the falls as 35,000 years. All of these esti mates were pure conjectures, but they were correct in assuming that the gorge had been excavated by the river. Professor Spencer, in out lining the progress of the falls, says that a little stream draining the Erie Basin once fell about 200 feet from tho brow of the Niagara escarpment. This stream was not over one-fourth the volume of the present cataract, and consequently cxcavatod the gorge at a much slower rate than at present. During the early history of the river the waters of the three upper lakes omptied through the Huron Basin by way of the Ottawa River. The height of the falls has increased several times. Tho first episode, represented by a small river falling 200 feet, lasted 11,000 yoars. Then the height of the falls was increased to 400 feet, and took the drainage of all tho upper great lakes. At the same time there was a series of cascades, three in all, the lower gaining on the upper until finally they were all united in one great cataract, much higher than that of to-day. Subsequently the waters were raised at the head of Lake On tario, and the falls approximated to the present conditions after a lapse of 1000 years, and another 1000 years was probably occupied by transitorial changes of a very gradual character. It is now 8000 years since Lake Huron emptied into Lake Erie for the first time. The land has risen about the outlet of Lake Erie, And if the present rate of change continues, in 5000 or 6000 years the waters of the four lakes will be turned into the Mississippi River drainage at Chicago.—New Or leans Picayune.
