Pork for Homo Uso. It may, possibly, pay best to have large, fat porkers for market purposes, to suit the needs of the packers of pork, who want the large, heavy poik, but when it comes to the home supply, we want our pork with but a small portion of fat. There are some breeds of pigs, noticeably so the small English York shires, which produce a very large pro portion of fat, and, while they may please the eye of most persons, when in the living form, wnen killed and dressed tho large proportions of fat makes the meat undesirable for most palates. It docs not pay to raise pigs solely, or al most so, tor lard. With the exception of, perhaps, the Berks hi res, most of our well-known breeds of pigs are, in their purity, rather too much inclined to lay on fat to make them desirable for home use, aud-wc have for a manlier of years been experimenting to find out bow to produce just such porkers as would best meet the requirements.. While the breed ing has a great deal to do with having good pork for homo use, tho feeding plays a very important part, and the quality of the pork depends in a great measure on proper feeding. We <le not like having the porkers confined to small pens, evou though the pigs may fatten up more quickly than if they^have plenty of exercise room, but let them have the run of a good clover lot during the sum mer and fall, ringing the pigs so that they cannot destroy the sod, then supply them with grain, in different forms, daily, with plenty of fresh water, at least once a day, as much as they will drink. Hogs can he kept in fair condi tion on plenty of clover and water, but to make them improve as they should, grain should In: given. A good summer icea is one inauc by iniving corn and oats ground together, say in proportion of one bushel of corn to two of oats, then making a siop of this. Our plan is to half fill a barrel with this mixture and then moisten the mass (with cold water in summer and hot in winter), do ing this in the afternoon or evening, and then feeding it, diluted to the proper Consistency, next morning, by xvhich time it will have soured sufficiently. It is well to add a couple of handfuls of salt as well as a half peck or so of bits of charcoal. This charcoal can readily be secured on the farm, where wood tires are used, by sieving the wood ashes and using the bits of charcoal which remain in the sieve.—Breeders' Journal. Cultivating the Pear Tree. The following interesting paper was read a a recent meeting of the Horti cultural Society of Miami County, juliio: The pear is not a native of this conti nent, but belongs to Europe and Asia, where it may be found in ils wild or primitive state. There it exhibits more thrift than the apple, and grows to treater dimensions. From the East it _ as been carried to our continent, where 1 it has found a soil adapted to its growth, and a climate calculated to more fully ; develop the fruit. The pear is said to j have been known to survive the change 1 of seasons for 500 years (probably that was before the introduction of blight), ! and to attain to an enormous size, as thegrc.it tree of Herefordshire, England, which shades half an acre, and has pro ducod in one season BO.) bushels of I fcwr fruit: or the famous tree in the vicinity j • of Vincennes, in our own country, j which, at the age of forty years, pro duced 180 bushels of fair fruit. The pear is not only profitable as a fruit tree, but the wood is tine grained and heavy, and Yankee ingenuity has succeeded in mak i ing a fair ijunliiy of ebony therefrom. ► . The soil for the pear should be toler ably heavy clay loam, xvith heavy clay 6ubsoil, well underdrained, although! some varieties do well on a gravelly sub- i soil. In fact, the pear will sft coed in a greater variety of toil and climate than • any other of our cultivated fruits. There fore, if you have the most desirable situation, all will be well; if not, select the best you have. Having determined where and how many trees we will plant, the selection of varieties should be de termined by the object for which xve plant. If for market, I would plant few varieties, sty Madeleine, for very early; mrtiett, uuceesse, ueurru u Anjou anu Lawrence. If for amateur purposes, or for home uce, I would plant about as follows, which I will name in the order of ripening: Madeleine, Tyson, Bartlett, Sheldon, Seckel, White 1'oyenue, Duch esse, Beurro d’Anjou, Lawrence and Beurrc Easter, or some other late variety. This will give us an almndauce of choice fruit through the season. If possible, go in person to some feli able nurseryman and have him take two or three stout assistants to his two year old trees (have none older); select a good stocky tree, have it taken up in your presence and immediately mossed, that it may not dry or come in contact with the air for any length of time, for therein lies the length of life and thrift of your trees. Then pay the nurseryman well for his extra trouble. The ground hav ing been previously prepared for deep plowing in tlie fall, turning under a lib eral supply of manure, and marked twenty five feet each way, dig two feet square and one :yid a half deep, till with rich loain to the proper depth to receive the tree, which should be a very little deeper that it stood in the nursery. The soil should be tramped well around the roots and watered, if dry; then two inches of dry soil should bu pul on top. The soil should he carefully cultivated for a few years, or until the trees com mence bearing. Then, with an occa sional top dressing, they will he able to care for thcinsolves, and you may invite your friend? to accompany you to the pear orchard, where, with honest pride you may call liis attention to the golden tints of the Bartlett, the magnificent size ' of the Duel:esse, and the rich brown russet of the ever loveel Seckel; aud there fill your basket; carry them tc your better half, and then to the bettei half of your friend, and together enjoj a feast lit for the gods. In closing } must add that most varieties are better il ripened in the house, especially the lattei sorts, although there are exceptions tc the rule. Farm and Garden Notes, It is always better to feed the surplui of the farm than to sell it off the same. The bull this le, unlike the Cauadi thistle, does not-propagate from under ground roots, but can easily be got rid o in two seasons by not allowing any plant; U> go to seed. « The better farmers understand botany the better success might attend their sowing seed, and better fruits uud crops might bs grown. The manure made upon th farm should all be employed first, n if there is a deficiency, resort Jieial means of supply from with t. If farmers fully appreciate d I he value of wood ashes, they would take better care of I hem, and spread them upon mow ing land or apply them to growing crons. They contain the essential inorganic ele ments of plants. Those who have mulched tree trunks during the summer, to retain moisture in the soil, should be careful to remove the coarse litter iw time or it will become a refugfc for mice during the winter. Again, there may be so much mulching done as to incline roots to come too near the sur face. Because pigs huddle together at night, ' and thus keep themselves warm, many think that shelter is less important for them than for other stock. Their feeding place, especially, should always be covered and protected from winds. The pig lias little hair on its body, and is more sensitive to cold than any other farm slock. After being huddled up under cover all night, their exposure in feeding is all the more likely to bo in jurious. It has generally been supposed that tomatoes which mature during cloudy or rainy seasons are more acid than those that mature in bright, hot sunshine. We have found, however, that the late to matoes, which were picked off to ripen under cover are not so acid as those which ripened on the vines. They are not -o higli-fiavorcd, it is true, but still les3 acid. Nearly all the tomatoes now so abundant in tin?markets are ripened under cover, and tlicv aic lamer, more shanclv. with less crack anil rot than the earlier supply. —Rural New Yorker. Iioots for table use should not be al lowed to freeze, or shrink from drying. The supply for the kitchen may be packed in barrels or boxes, covered with dry earth, aud placed in the cellar. Large quantities should be stored in trenches. Cabbages may also be stored in trenches. Onions may be placed in barrels and the whole deeply covered with hay. Onion sets are best kept by planting, if the soil is open, ^tfrsley may be had when wanted, by planting roots in a box of soil and keeping it in the kitchen or other light room where it will not freeze. We have long thought that much of the soft corn almost wasted in fattening pork might lie more profitably fed to cows. The well-fed pig rejects the soft green cob, which in this xtnge.lupj ji good dqjil of. nutriment. His digestion, contrary to popular belief, is not as good as that of the cow. Give the fattening pig a greater variety of food, and lie will not only thrive better but make more healthful, if not quite so fat. pork. Tire corn judi ciously fed to milch cows will give far hotter relurns, keeping them from grow ing poor, as cows arc apt to do at this season when not given extra feed. We are satisfied from long experience and observation that a great mistake is made in ordering large size 3 to 1 year old fruit trees in preference to a smaller size of two years old. Hirst, the freight or express charges are double. Second, the larger trees are more likely to die be cause of poorer roots, in proportion to the size of the tree. Third, they eati not he packed as well and go a long journey as safely us smaller trees. In our long ex perience we have found that a medium sized 3 year old tree taken up and set at the same time as a laryo 3 or 4 year old tree, will come into full bearing first aud be tho healthier.—Popular Gardening.. Tho mystery of tho formation of the potato scab is explained by tho Connecti cut Experiment Station: The skin of tho potato is a layer of cork-cells, and when injured it heals by the formation of anew coirk layer. When the tuber grows in water, or in a xvet soil, the cork layer thickens at various points, producing many little warts on tlie surface, and ren dering the cuticle less resistant of decay. If the excess of water continues fora con siderable time, decay sets in unit the starch aud tissues of the tuber become discolored. Hut if the decay is arrested, the cork layer forms between the de envod nil d hoalthv narts and .the potato is scabby. ^otne farmers have tried banking up the basement of barns, especially the roadway to the doors, with loose stones, covering the whole with dirt. 1 h:s makes a dry roadway, but the objection is that these covered stone heaps become the harbor for rats, and it is almost im possible to destroy or drive them away. The best rule is to keep farm tools housed when not in use. If, however, they have ! been left out until now, no time should be lost iu getting them in. The wastage from exposure of costly implements is enormous every year, and it is responsi ) ble for considerable of the hard times that some farmers complain of No mat ter how soon tools are rusted out, the farmer cannot escape paying for them. The principle is well settled that it is a mistake to have a great variety of apple trees in the same orchard. There is even danger that a near neighborhood of | many kinds will lead to injurious “cross ing’* of qualities by the implantation of ! differing kinds of pollen in the same calyx. The great orchardists of Now York, on the Hudson, who used to ship thousands of barrels annually to the Lou don market, planted and engrafted but 1 few varieties, and brought their fruit to ! great perfection, better have au orchard i of one thousand trees of pippins or some I other specific kinds, than ten hundred trees, each hundred of differing species disposed hap-hazard over the ground, even though planted systematically forty feet apart. Au Ohio apiarist, Mr. 1L II. Huff, says that in collar-wintering it is essential to keep the bees very quiet, in perfectly dark quarters, and that a cellar con nected to the dwelling-house, whore vegetables and other things are kept, will do it. A cellar containing bees, he adds, should never be visited except for the purpose of examining into their con dition. If we expect to winter bees in the cellar we can let them remain on their summer stands until cool weather sots iu, at which time we have every thin" in readiness. The cellar should be i so arranged that we can attend to the i wants of any colony that may need oui attention. The hives should be sc ’ arranged that no adjusting of them is U 1 be done after removing them to thi cellar. SCIENTIFIC AND INDUSTRIAL. Window panes of paper are the latest.

It is impossible to put electric wires under ground in New Orleans because the water level is but threo feet below the surface. So strong towers, 150 feet high, are erected, and on these telegraph mid telephone wires are carried above the public streets. These towers arc also used to sustain stand pipes, which have nozzles at uiiferent elevations where hose can be attached in case of fire. The “tuchmig” of the Chinese, or Pr.riicria f/lundullj'era of botanists, grows in southern India, and has been recommended to the Indian government as a tree from which large ijuantitics of caoutchouc can be drawn.

At the Newcastle (England) exhibi tion can bo seen a new locomotive, run by compressed air. It is intended for underground work especially and has already been employed iu 'several of tlio Durham mines. It has a weight of ubout two tons and runs on a narrow-gauge, /dU-itu^i track. The maximum load which, the engine will draw is twelve tons. The air is at 400 pounds pressure, nnd, with with a lead of five tons on an jr Unary road, a single air-charge will last about one mile. Under the old doctrine that nothing hut liquid could puss through cell walls, and by the cndosmotic process, it was difficult to conceive how there could be any ground fi r the popular belief that hybrids occasionally spring from graft ing. Yet the fact that new varieties can originate from grafting has been proven true by the experience of careful experi menters in recent years. The new dis covery that the substance called proto plasm is continuous, and passes from cel to cell, as well as plant liquids, makci the explanation of graft hybrids nov clear. __ Four Hundred Nickels. Superintendent Morton, of the Unjo Railway Company, tells the followin story: “When I'lirst took charge of tb road the drivers complained to mo of certain lady who rode down town an back again every day without payin fare. She would get aboard the car am hand the driver a $20 bill to change. O course ho could not change it, and couli not ask the lady to get o If, so she rod freo every trip. ' I decided that she wa deliberately beating the company and de termined to get even with her. Om morning I gave one of the drivers on the line which passed the lady’s house, $21 in nickels, and instructed him to change the lady’s bill. She fell into the trap, and about ten o’clock boarded the righ; car on her wav down town. She handed the driver the" $20 bill, and he promptly returned her 400 nickels. She put liei fare in the box, but slio was so nngn she left the ear and did not ride again loi a month. After that she always ha<i change when she boarded a car. *‘1’ would surprise you,” continued’Mr. Mor ton, ‘to know how many people, espe daily ladies, beat the company out ol their fare in this way. They tender s $10 or $20 bill, knowing very well that the driver cannot change it, and in tha way secure a freo ride.”—Birmingham (A/a.) A<jc._^ Martha’s Grave.

No pro]** estimate of the futuso econom ical progisif of the country can be made that docs not taw into consideration mi element widen may be termed “the woman In busi ness.” She is knocking at all the doors of rominor eial enterprise, and there are very few into which sne has not already forced an entrance. The results seem to indicate that, beyond a doubt, she has come to stay. She cannot perhaps often reach the levers which move the great driving wheels of busi ness, but she proves a most important factor in the minor but scarcely less important ma chinery of detail. Phi! Armour's private secretary is a young lady who wax first employed as a stenographer and type-writer. She proved so capable ami efficient t hat her sphere of usefulness lias been gradually enlarged, until rhe now has probably a closer acquaintance with Armour’s extended business than any other person connected with it. It used to lie claimed that a woman had neither physical nor mental stamina to con dneta large busmess. Mi s. Frank Leslie has made a success of as complicated a business enterprise as almost any in the country. The strong point in this ease is that whenshe took the helm, the Frank Leslie Publishing Company had but a short time previously failed. Madame Demurest conducts a very exten sive business, which includes the publishing of a magazine. Mrs. Annie Jenmrs Miller conducts a famous dress reform movement, ai d is also the editress of a very successful magazine called Dress. Her daily mail is said to lil* larger than that of any other woman in the United States. Mrs. Miller says: “Warner’s safe cure is the only medicine I ever take or recommend. The safe care has the effect to give new ener gy and vitality to all my powers.” These women have demonstrated that the sex can succeed in businc: s if they take proper care of their health. That is the main point, e/cri with the sterner sex, and it is thesuliject to which, above all others, the women of to day should give their attention. And here, as everj where, comes in play the old maxim. “Ail ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cuie, Ho Started.

His familiar face and form have become a trade mark, and tbs good he has done is illustrated in the follow ing marvelous instance: Jan. 17, 1883, George C.

He could not walk upon it. Mr. Dennis had some St. Jacobs Oil in the house and gave it to him to rub on bis knee. In six days he had no use for his crutches and went home well without them, Ind lie has been well since 8t. Jawbs Oil cured him.” In July. 1887, inquiry was made of tbs Messrs.
