Kep to the Dairy Stork Fro cssnr I,. H. Arnold, oneof the best American authorities on matters liorlain ing to dairy hiislmndry, declares that, after studying the effects of the customary treatment of dairy stock for over thirty years, he is confident that "sc snty free! m summer droughts, and pinching with needless exposure to cold in winter, keep the annual product of the tows of the country forty per cent, below what it would he wi h fair and constant rations the year round and comfortable lions mg. I his is far from complimentary to our butter and cheese makers, but only conliims the recent statement of another wciier. namely, "that we need a new race of dairymen, who will know enough to keep a cow in milk giving condition the year round.” Xew York Witney. Specialties In Flowers. M. Y. Faxon says in the Ar/rieuHurist : itO'Cs, can.atious, find a few oilier How ers appear to lie popular at all tunes, mb le others have their seasons and pe riods of popularity, after which they re tutu to seeming obscurity. As it is im possible for one person to grow to perfec tion many kinds of (lowers requiring different treatment, this fickleness in flower fashions is not an unmixed evil. In raising flowers, as in any other work, it is the specialists who achieve the greatest success. The beautiful chrys anthemums, for instance, which of late have, attiacted so much attention, are most exclusively grown by persons who have devoted all their energies to the perfection of these plants. Annuals have lately been much neglected, arid yet they are of the easiest cultivation, and in beauty second to none. They are the flowers for everybody. They rnav be sown directly in the open ground, or, if the season is late, in window-boxes or hot beds, transplanting the seedlings in proper time. Asters, balsams, pansies, and many others, aff ord inviting special ties. Dive the aunuuls a chance this snmmor, and do not forget to plant a few seeds of the single dahlia. Feeding Fight Ftrnhmas for Kggs. Over-feeding is injurious to all breeds, hut esneeiallv an in I i.rVn iiraXn,,. Com should be excluded from their diet, except in extreme cold weather, when it may lie given in a mixture of corn,wheat and oats, as a hot mash in ihe morning. Oatmeal scalded and made the consist ency of mush, into which a handful of dessicated fish may be mixed, i.s one of the best egg-producing foods that can be given. On alternate mornings flaxseed meal may be used in place of the tish. A pint of whole wheat to every twelve fowls is mi t cient for an evening meal, and this should be thrown among leaves or chaff to make them scratch for it. Haw meat should be given three times a week. A cabbage fastened byastring and suspended from the center of i he hen house, just high enough to make them jump tor all they get, is an excel lent thing. In short, any means that can lie devised to make them work for their feed, with Ihe exception of their morning meal; and even that should be light, simply giving enough for an appe tizer will be found of great benefit to them. From actual experience we have found that pure bred Hralima-, by careful feed ing, can be made far better layers than hall breeds, and if intelligently bred can combine fancy points and eggs. The object to be gained in raising chickens for early market is to have them ... to weigh from ore and a halt to two pounds in the shortest time possible. They shoulil'le fed upon such food as will cause the least amount of shrink age. Exclusive use of - oft feed will put flesh upon the carcass rapidly, hut of such a nature that tlie shrinkage will be at least six ounces ton chicken dressed). To avoid this, xxliolo wheat slum d enter largely inio the.r diet. They ran lie taught to cat ii when a few days old by crushing a portion of it and mixing with the whole grains The tiesli of a chicken raised on soft fo d presents a shriveled appearance, especially on tin* breast aft r dressing, which never occurs when the birds are fed upon grains as well. Noth ing can l.e more delicious than tlie llesh of.chickens grown to weigh two pounds in eight weeks.—farm, meld an / Stjck man. Ensilage Experience. At a meeting of the Kansas Board ot Agriculture Mr. A. t'. Pierce made a report on building a silo, filling it, and reeding out the contents to cattle at dif ferent ages. In this report he says: “The silo which T have in use is built of stouo, and is entirely above ground. It is 24x48 feet outside and 20 feet hi"h. My •ilo is divided into two rooms. 'I wo doors, one above tho other, open from each room of the slip into the lmrn on the north of it. The walls of the sdo, first 10 feet, are 2 teet thick; upper 10 feet 18 inches thick. I would recom mend a wa l 2} feet ihick at least for a silo ?0feet high. My xvalls were laid up in lime mortar, and the inside of the walls and floor wcie plastered with cement. Such a silo ns 1 have described will hold nearly 500 tons of ensilage. When tilled 1 covered with hay and then laid rough planks over the hay, and weighed wdth stone at the rate oi about 1J00 pounds to the sijuare yard. It is not necessary that the. planks should lie L grooved or laid smooth. The weight is of cousideruble ini nor: mice in pressing out the air. A sdo holding 500 tons i nn be built of stone, entirely above ground, for less than #500. One of the 3ame capacity i an be built in a bank, or side of a bind, where the ground is firm, so the sides can be cemented, lor less than # 2-0. If I were building a silo to day, and a high bank were convenient, 1 would excavate and build my silo some thing like a bank barn. 1 would cement the sides like a cistern, and would put a heavy wall on the open side. 1 would make a portable or movable roof, which ' conld be removed while filling the sdo, and covered easily when full and weighted. •■My stab’e is built ou the north side of the alio, and holds 100 head of cattle, fastened in stancheons. In feeding, the ensilage ia loaded into small curs hold ing «b out one thousand pounds. 'I ho track of the car is suspended from the fio >r above the car. so as to be out oi the wav of any litter that might fall upn i the floor. I am feeding now about twenty-five pounds of ensilage twice a each grown animal, hliI about pounds to each young animal. I am well satisfied that it is the best and cheapest food in Kansas. ‘‘Corn is the easiest growm, and the best thing I know of to fill a silo. So far I have uted the common field corn, Next year 1 shall try the mammoth sweet corn. One part of my field was listed last year about the 1st of April, and again the same way, splitting the ridges, about the 1st of May. We dropped the corn very thickly—I should say the ker nels were about two or three inches apart -intending to cut the crop for the ado. The drought came, and this par ticular held of corn was quickly withered, on account of the s'nlks being close to gather. I concluded to cut up this piece for fodder, and for the silo we used corn which had been planted about the usual didance of planting corn. I had listed this ground twice, and some of it three times. This corn was heavy, averaging about fifty bushels to the acre, and weighing green about twenty tons to the acre. 1 judge by weigh ng average loads. We commenced cutting about the 1st of September. The ears were in the milk or dough, and the stalks green clear down to the ground and al out twelve feet high. The corn was cut and thrown in piles. Four teams were used to haul corn to the cutting machine. Some of it we cut half an inch and some an inch long. This made no difference in its keeping. 1 used a four horse power, and some of Hie time I used six upon it. The elevator is about thirty feet long, one end attached to the cut ter, and the other resting upon the top of the wall of the silo. I think with a good force of nine men that about forty tons of feed can be cut and put in silo iu one day. Corn can be grown, cut, and weighted down in a silo for less than one dollar per ton, not counting the rent of the gioitud. Mr. Pierce finds ensilage to be the best food for "skim-milk" calves. They thrive on it better than on any kind of hay, even when they have meal in -addi tion. His cows give the most milk when they are supplied with ensilage. For making feed, corn or other grains should be fed in connection with it It, is much easier to feed cattle from a silo than from a hav stack. At the last a man is exposed to the cold and to storms of snow and rain, in the first he is sheltered by n warm buildinrr. Much of the hav in a stark- is blown away while feeding it out, and more is injUted by snow and rains, Kn s lage does not blow away and snow and rain cannot reach it. A silo, if filled of sui'able material, cannot be blown down, anti it is not liable to be burned. The most successful cattle raisers in the state are those who have silos. Pithy Paragraphs. W atch and hoe. Breed up and not down. Clean baskets and crates are good salesmen. Cut clover at, or just before, the hight of bloom. It is highly extravagant to use low priced mower oil. Fine surface soil is a mulch that will antagonize drought. Fly nets to horses will save oats to more than their cost. Cut orchard grass in early bloom—later it makes poor iiay.

The less you disturb the sitting hen, the better she will attend to her busi ness. There is no profit in ministering to a hog diseased when the disease is swine plague. Better feed the infeiior fruits and vege tables to the hogs than to send them to market. The secrets of large yields always and everywhere are rich soil, good seed, and thorough tillage.

It is as unjust as it is unwise to shoot the birds because they take a few berries —they have earned a feast. When the wife and children attend to the poultry, it isn’t fairto exchange eggs for tobacco and machine oil. To be thrifty an animal must be com fortable. This is true in the spring or summer, as well as in the winter. The work horse will be beueiited by spending the agreeable nights on the pasture after it has made good growth. flowing under grass and clover makes the largest addition to the soil of the best kind of plant, food at the same cost.

A Ghoulish Industry. A French paper describes a factory which is said to be flourishing at St. Denis. France. Within its walls human skeletons are “made” in the following manner: The largest room of the build ing is filled with enormous kettles in which the bones of the corpses are boiled until nil the flesh is separated from them. The skulls arc prepared separately, and in the most careful manner. One way of preparing the skulls of children and young people is to till the hoi ow where the brains are situated with peas, and then let the laiter swell in water, which causes even the most delicately joined bonus to separate without being in ti ed. After all the bones have been carefully washed, they are bleached, either by chloral or by exposure to the sun, and are then joined in another department of the factory, and are made flexible by means of brass wires. Most of the corpses whose bone-; arc utilized are said to be brought fiom hospitals, prisons and dissecting rooms, and the latest l.usso Turkish war is said to have’brought much “material” to the factory.

Getting Justice. Tjor Meriwether relatea a verv nmu». ing and yet annoying experience whicl; l be had in Switzerland in attempting t< ly obtain justice. He says that, while lie was taking a stroll early one morning, he stopped at one of the numerous small inns and ordered a glass of milk. “Cold, sweet milk,” lie said twice to the waiter, j M otherwise they bring, as a matter ol j course, either not or sour milk—two j favorite ways of taking milk among | the Germans. To his surprise the ! waiter brought u pitcher of boiling hot milk. He continues the story ns follows. I repeated my order for a glass of cold milk. The waiter said he had none. I arose to go. “What!” lie exclaimed. “You will not pay!” and without waiting for a re ply he snatched my hat from my head, and gave il to the proprietor, who at that moment entered. I looked at them with a sort of ad miration. Never had I seen such pure assurance, never men with so free and j easy a method of collecting payment for I goods neither ordered nor used. Gazing some moments at the good I natured host and his waiter, I took down his name and number, and repaired, bareheaded, to the police station. There I related my story. The officers consult ed, and finally decided the matter was not within their jurisdiction. “Go,” they said, “to the Friedens richter” (peace justice). The Friedensrichter was a grave, bald \ headed man. As I was about to state mv case, the learned man raised his hand and bado me stop. “Do you not know,” he asked “that fee must first bo paid “But, sir, I have a charge of assault to make. Must I pay for notifying an officer of a breach of the peace?” “You must. The fee is two and a half francs.” This was paid. I wanted light on the subject, slid requested the address of a lawyer. The Friedensrichter gave me one. Half an hour later I knocked at the door of the man of law, only to learn tllftti lift WAS \V«V HArcimv lliu imnuul weeks in the army. The maid, however, told me of another lawyer, and he, upon payment of a fee for legal services, told me the law was upon the milkman’s side, but that I could go to the “Geriohtpra sident" if I desired further imforma tion. I went to the Gericlitprasident. He, too, said the law was with the hot-milk man. Then I went to the rascally land lord. “I pay yon.” I said, handing him the money and taking my hat, “I pay you, not for the milk I did not order and did not drink, but for information you have been the means of my acquiring.” “What information;” “That a stranger may be assaulted here without redress. ” The churl laughed scornfully; but I got even with him. My first act on reach ing Germany territory was to send the polite Swiss landlord a large package by express; the charges, about one dol lar and fifty cents, I did not prepay. There was nothing in the package ex cepting a lot of sawdust, and a sheet of paper with this single line : j “Zum Andenken an den Mann dessen Hut Sie gestohlen haben” (Souvenir of I the man whose hat you stole). Will This be a Hot Summer] The impression seems to prevail pretty genarally that we are to have a hot sum mer throughout the country. The Indiana PharniKut predicates it upon the following theory, which has been advanced by others: The weather seems to run in cycles of about seven years, that is, when we have a hot sum mer, it is always followed by a oold one, and it takes about seven years to reach another equally hot. It will be remem bered by many that the summer of 1867 was very hot, and so dry tliat during August the grass crumbled under the feet when trod upon. The summer of 1868 was noted for its coolness, the thermometer very seldom getting above 85 degrees, and we did not reach the top wave of tliermality again until 1874, when it was extremely hot. The follow ed summer was oold to a remarkable degree. From then on the summers grew gradually wanner until 1881, which was excessively hot and very dry, no rain falling for over nine weeks, and there were more snnRt.rnken flint enm. mer than there has been in all the sum mers since. The summer of 1882 was quite cold; a few flakes of snow fell on the morning of July 4, followed by hail in the after noon, and during the rest of the month and through the month af August the temperature was so low that overcoats were necesspev for comfort, particularly at night. Tne summers since 1882 have grown warmer and warmer, and luBt summer was a moderately hot one, but unless all signs fail, the coming sum mer will be the climax of the cycle, and a hot dry season may be expected. So far this spring the signs have been against the theory here advanced, but possibly the coo!ness of the spring may be succeeded by a regular old scorching summer whoso temperature will rival sheol for hotness.
