600 SOUTH AMERICAN ANIMALS.
Ferocious Big Frogs—Huge Rats and a Toothless Curiosity. Many curious animals haunt the marshy parts of South America north of the pampas. Frrgs big and fe poctous (the ceratophyr8) given to / making vicious springs when close ly approached; the capybara, a cavy “contented with the bulk of a sheep”; the huge co.vpu rat and the swarthy plgllke tapir are frequently seen. Along the forest margin* troops of peccaries tire often met with, oc casionally the jaguar, sometimes the puma, likewise that toothless curi osity the great ant boar, long In claw, long nosed and remarkably long tongued. Very plentiful too are those "little knights in scaly armor,” the quaint, waddling armadllloes; long toed jacanas pace about upon the floating leave*. A familiar object Is the great ja Mrn. a stork with a preference for the deeolatc lagoons, where It may often be observed statuesque on one leg and wrapped In prospaction.-* From the Scotsman.

The useful life of a wagon or dray employed in heavy hauling depends very largely on the care of its wheels and axles. Hosts of farmers and teamsters, who ought to know better, think that "grease is just grease anyway,” and so cut the boxes out of their wagon wheels by using some inferior lubricant, which runs off and leaves the spindle dry, or forms a btiff, almost gritty substance in the wheel, which is Just as bad. A proper axle grease for use on every type of heavy wagon should have just the right “body.” that is it ought to be neither so thin as to run, nor so heavy as to stiffen. It should have, too, a long-lasting quality, if it is to be economical.—Am erican Cultivator. Rotating Horseless Plow. The Rural Engineering section of tne Department oi AgTicuuure nos ie ceived a report on a very unusual type of plow, which, instead of turning the soil, bores it. The ordinary plowshare is replaced by a paid of augur-llke screws which precede the machine and are rotated in opposite directions with respect each other as the machine moves forward, 'the machine is run by a gasoline motor and is self-pro pelling. It is claimed to possess cer tain advantages in giving the soil a more thorough stirring than is possi ble with the ordinary plow. In a ten hour day it is claimed that 2.5 acres may be plowed to a depth of eight Inches in compast soil at a total ex pense of about $4, with gasoline at a price of twenty cents a gallon. Nubbins or "Pig Corn” for Seed. While husking corn a few years ago I camo across an ear that was imper fectly polenated, and had upon It a few kernels on the cob and no two touching each other. They were very large and resembled the outside chest nuts In a burr. It occurred to me that If those kernels were planted they would make very strong plants. I saved the ear and the next spring I planted the kernels, and when they ca'me up their broad, dark green leaves surprised me. The plants were very strong and produced more corn than the same number of any other plants in the field. In saving seed where ear llness is desired, I am of the opinion that It is better to select from that, which matures the latest, rather than from that which matures the earliest; my experiments with the tomato also Indicate that.—N. B. White, In the Am erican Cultivator. Care of the Harness. “There is nothing like leather.” But there Is nothing like knowing how to keep your leather goods in fine condi tion, too. Leather is composed of a mass of fine tendrils, intimately in terlocked and entwined. When In good, pliable condition, each tendril is cap able of much stretching, says the Prairie Farmer. It allowed to became dry and hard, wnen me learner is suojecieu 10 a se : vere pull, the tendrils break instead of stretching. But this does not mean that leather ooots or harness should be kept soaked with oil or dressing. Elbow grease applied in quantity is better. ‘‘All dressings should be applied sparingly,” is the sound advice of a big saddlery concern. Black oil should always bo uscd on black harness and not neatsfoot oil, as the latter will draw ont the black dye and leave the harness brown. The black harness fats now on the market, make excel lent farm harness dressing. They con tain the “nourishment” necessary for keeping the harness in good order. ; But first all dirt should be washed off with lukewarm water and ordinary soap. The black fat should then be applied with a cloth, given a short time to penetrate the leather, and then rubbed dry with another cloth. Some make the mistake of oiling without unbuckling the harness. The parts that need nouruishment most are under the buckles, where the metal causes hardness and brittleness. If people would vary the holes of the harness occasionally It would last much longpr. An objection to neatsfoot oil Is that it Inclines to wash off the beeswax from the stitches, leaving the bare thread, which then soon breaks.—Am erican Cultivator. . Us* of Paint. A shrewd old farmer used to say that there were two unfailing signs of a prosperous farmer—the manure he hauled and the paint he need, says the National Stockman. Perhaps there i3 nothing that does more to give the im pression of prosperity than paint used judiciously on the farm buildings. Con trast the well painted farm buildings with those which are unpainted, and note the different impression made on the people who pass by these farms. But that Is, perhaps, one of the least of the arguments, for the use of paint. Paint is a sanitary agency. A well painted farmhouse, barn, wagon or carriage house of any other outbuild ing is rarely a filthy one. Filth shows up too plain alongside of paint—and it Is removed or, better yet, is kept away. Paint is a preservative, and here Its usefulness is greatest. It keeps out the .elements which cause decay and loss. It is economical because it does this. The house or barn, or fence kept weilipainted is as good now as it was ten years axo wherever; the Influence of the paint extends. The economical way of using paint Is to put It on be fore ft is actually necessary. It takes less than It does later, and there Is certain to be no period of exposure which may allow the process of decay to begin. Modern paint can be applied by any one, and it Is not necessary for •ordinary work to have skilled labor to apply it. Storage of Potatoes. In a community that produces many potatoes, storage housse become a necessity. Potatoes stored in an or dinary storage room lose weight rap idly and soon become shriveled and a poor quality. The underground stor age combines all the qualities for keeping potatoes in the best condi tion. Possibly the most Important re quisite Is to keep down the tempera ture of the cellar. These cellars should be built lengthwise, with the currents of air so that lit the fall, when the potatoes are put in, a draft through the cellar can be established at night to carry off the heat brought with the potatoes durfng the day. The prac tice is to fill in the bins in layers of not more than one foot each day and let this layer cool down during the night. After the potatoes are all in, the ventilation is regulated so that the temperature is kept as near freezing point as possible without freezing the potatoes. This ventilation is neces sary, not only to regulate the tempera ture, but to keep the air pure and dry. If the air becomes foul and damp, molds will grow and dry rot or Fusarium will develop. Many po tatoes are spoiled in the stores and in the store rooms of dwellings. Fre quently a load of potatoes Is taken to a grocery and stored in an above ground store room, where the air is warm and the room light. It is thought because the potatoes are in sacks or barrels that they will keep until sold out and used. Such is not the case, however; a very little light, especially where the air Is warm, will make notatoes unfit for food In two weeks.—From a report of the Depart ment of Agriculture. Poultry Reminders. Some very lucky poultry keepers can’t understand why bran or shorts should be fed when the wheat is ob tainable. The bran is builder, more filling, even if not a staying, and then it is a change. Variety is necessary in feed ing poultry. When you are cross from waiting on your meals, think how often the poul try waits upon your pleasure before getting their meals. Think of the poultry when you relish the fresh drink of water, and see that they may quench thelP thirst without eating ice or snow. Again the bran may be mixed with the table scraps, the meat broth or milk, while the wheat could not be used to such good advantage. All these things should be attended to for humanity’s sake, but also for the profit that will be derived if the fowls are well and intelligently cared for. When uncomfortable from any cause think how you feel, and whether it is not in your power to make the poultry and other dependents more comfort able. All in all, bran is a good thing to use as an occasional poultry feed. It is said to be a good corrective for some forms of indigestion.—E. C., in the Indiana Farmer. When drafts enter around the win dows and doors, causing you to shiv er, think of the cracks in the poultry house, and remember tnem with build ing paper or other good draft stop yci o. When bathing think of the poultry, and give them a fresh dust bath of warm sifted coal ashes or warmed dust. When using your teeth, think of the hens, poor things that have none, and provide sharp grit for them. Animals in Court. The Irish terrier which exhibited its tricks the other day at the West minster court is by no means the first animal which has relieved »’ie tedium of an English court of le by Its an tics. In a Manchester police court a baboon, which apeared In the dock with its owner on a charge of break ing into a fowl house, showed its con tempt of the court by stealing and chewing up pens under the very nose of the magistrate. At a London court 10 frogs were produced in evidence; in another case a porcupine was ex hibited on the witness table of n county court to show whether or not the animal was worth the money claimed for it; while among other an imals which have made similar un conventional appearances In recent years have been cats, donkeys and a baby lion—Tit-Bits. England’s Largest Land Owners. The Marquis of Stafford, who is in his twentieth year, is heir to the most extensive domain, if not the largest rent roll, enjoyed by any subject of King Edward. More than 1,000,000 acres in Eng land and Scotland are under the lord ship of his father, the Duke of Suth erland, while the Marquis of Bread albane, who is probably the next larg est proprietor In the kingdom, does not own half that amount of land.— Tit-Bits. Canada’s Finance.

(Question of Duty In Mexico. "To demonstrate the shrewdness of (ho Mexican merchant I want to tall ! you a story,” said L. O. Ellis, of Mexico. “Shortly before I left a cer tain merchant cent an order to a large furniture house In this country for an iron bed. He Instructed the ; firm to "nscrew 'the small brass knobo which adorned the ironwork. The shipping clerk for the firm, when he read the Instructions, assumed, ap parently. that the Mexican was crazy and neglected to comply with the re ' quest. Consequently, when the bed was delivered to the Mexican h? had to pay the same price for it as If It ; had been constructed entirely of brass. If the knobs had been taken off the i chargee would have been based on ! the weight cf the bed In Iron. Be cause the knobs wore brass the auth orities charged the bed up a3 brass, thus making the duty about four times what it -should have been.”—Washing ton Post. A QUESTION OF AERO8TAT8. How the International 8tatus of Great Britain ia Threatened. When four grand armies of Ger many, France, Great Britain and the United States find themselves In pos flAQjlon C f nnrnstaln m imrvnn1.1i fna flight and military use. the very first question In world polities to be ask ed is. How will this affect the for eign policy and internalional status of Great Britain, now for two cen turies demonstrably the princess of the power of the sea, and by the eame token unassailable whether in her Insular stronghold, or upon the waves which Britannia' has ruled? The question is not. What of her col onies, where her scepter guides the «un around the globe; but What of the nucleus of Great Britain? What of the tight little island, mother and defender of them all? Is there to be—can there be?—a prince of tho power of tho air? For if there is, then the distinction, the unique ad vantage of the British empire van ishes, and Great Britain must take her place on a level with all the oth er sovereign great powers. This may not, will not. imperil her safety; but it must reduce her pride, her vaunted superiority, and her prerogatives, to the common in ternational denominator. Either this must event-uate or the assent of historians and history to her insularity and her sen domain os the basis of her greatness has been pure ly chimerical—nn illusion upon which her supremacy has been as well as eured as if it were fact. It is no illuslcn. Her sea power, supplemented by her statesmanship and valor, has forwardfld 'her gowtli and sustained her greatness. It must cease to do so from the decade in which the atmosphere enveloping the globe becomes man's greater ocean. So far as war ts concerned—as tho deterring factor, the “Last Chantey'' of the waves as dominating alike London’s “gossiping Mall and Square" and “The naked shingles of the world” will be sung, and a new song may be sounded in the empyrean the way of a ship in the sea—of an eagle in the air.—From Edmund Clarence Stedman’s “The Prince of the Pow °r of the Air" in the Century.
