A GOOD END POST.
Those of the Figure 4 Style Good iWhen Constructed Properly—A Practical Experience. In a recent Ohio Farmer, one of the readers advises others against ihe fig ure-4 style of end-post braces for fence. 1 have on my farm, says Chancy Avery, 14 end posts of this type, all giving as good service as 1 think it possible to get from any wood post; some of them have been set for six years, and the truss rods have needed no tightening, and 1 am con fident that with the right principle of construction, carefully executed, this style of bracing will he found the best. Thorough work is essential to success with any style of bracing. Too short braces lift too much on the end post, and END POST DP.ACE. I think this the main source of failure. In erecting the Fig. 4 type 1 set my posts as shown in the sketch. The post A is 14 to 18 inches in diameter and set 3H> feet in the ground and has two pieces 2x12 plank three feet long, spiked to faces or. the post, as shown at F, F. The lareo D is flat and about twice as large as a man can lilt, and finely settled in its bed with its top about three or four inches above ground. On this stone rests a brace shoe of ?*x4 inches wagon tire iron, bent as shown, with a hole in the straight end. through which the rod C is Lent or hooked as shown. C is a three fourths inch rod 12 feet long and has f;\e inches of thread, a nut and very large (three or four-inch) washer on the other end which passes through a one inch hole in the post about six inches above the surface of the ground. If the post ever sags forward, it can be righted, by removing dirt from the back of post as indicated by shaded line G. and then tightening the nut on the rod. It is a good plan to fill the thread on the rod thoroughly with axle grease, to prevent rust, before putting it in. If readers desire 1 will in future describe some other posts I have in use, which evi dently will be all right at the dawn of the next century. PRESERVING FENCE POSTS. They May Be Made to Last Much. " anger If They Are Dipped in Tar Eefore Being Set. There are several methods whereby fence posts may be made to last much longer than if set atives. To do this, have an ordinary large iron kettle, in which to heat and mix the tar, and a deep vat, which may be an oid wash boiler or similar tin ves sel, which must be at least three feet deep and ten inches in diameter. Have the tar quite hot when the posts are dipped. Allow them to remain a mo ment, then remove and pile with the ends free and allow to dry. A mixture of three parts coal tar and one part clean, unsalted grease, to pre vent the tar from drying until it has had time to fill the pores of the wood, is also a first-class preservative, says the Farm and Home. One barrel coal tar should cover 300 posts. This may be painted upon the posts, but better be applied in a bath as described above. In either ease the posts should not be set deeper than the tar has been applied. An application to the top or exposed part of the post need not be so thorough. Good paint is more valuable for exposed portions. Posts used in this way should be thor oughly dry and well seasoned before the tar is applied, otherwise when set they will rot quite as rapidly as if untreated. Heavy tar oils, such as carbolineum, are better than paints or coal tars, hut are expensive for general use. Charring posts before setting is not a good prac tice, because when charred large cracks appear, which are openings for rot. BITS TOR THINKING FARMERS. Stop the leaks. Be a good neighbor. Good seed—good luck. Pile up and burn the rubbisn. Does the house or barn need paint ing? Are there any tools or implements uncared for? Running down a farm don’t run up a bank account. How about the cellar? It neecs some attention these days. Devote your attention to that breed of stock you like best. The farmer who is smaller than his [arm plays a losing game. “It is never too late to mend”—a broken gate, door or leaky roof —Mid land Farmer. Cows Creatures of Habit. Cows are creatures of habit, and this applies as much to their food as to any thing else. A change of feed frequently means a falling off in the amount of milk the animals produce, and this oc curs, too, in relation to the most suc culent of foods. No food is considered better for cows than June grass, yet a prominent dairyman informs the writer that when his cows are changed from silage to pasture they invariably fall oft' temporarily in their milk flow. He says ♦hat the same is true if he changes from eld to fresh silage. This should be borne in mind, especially in changing from succulent to dry feeds.—Farmers' Re view. _ The Cement Floor. The cement floor in the dairy barn has doubtless come to stay. The only ob jection against it is the fact that it is cold for the cows to lie on. This may be obviated by the use of bedding, and bedding is very abundant on most farms. THE TIME TO FIGURE. How the Farmer May Follow’ Closely the Business End of the Farm. Now that the work of filling (he silo is again completed, it is an excellent time to look over the method this sea son and compare it with former years, and see if any new idea has been brought into use that has had a ten dency to reduce the expense and labor of accomplishing the work. There is a certain amount of work on the from (hat might be termed seasonable, that is. it. is done about the same time each season from year to year. The farm er is his own manager; he outlines and accomplishes to a large extent the work carried on upon the establish ment.; consequently he has unbound ed opportunity of studying his own conditions and discovering new and better methods. There are farmers who have at hand records of their operations, and can re fer to and compare accurately, by fig ures, the cost of completing certain kinds of work, and who have the ad vantage of knowing the variation of expense from year to year, and can compare methods of accomplishing the work. At “Forest Grove Farm” we do not feel at all satisfied with out farm operations unless we have at hand figures to compare, and in this way accurately reckon up variation ol production from one year to another. As space will not admit of giving a detailed account of our silo filling op erations, I will only here outline the work and compare ii with the preced ing year: Machinery for filling—engine and c ut ting box. 2todays at $ti per da\.$15 OC Seven men—four at $1 and three at $1.50 per day. 22 25 Farm team force, including three teams at $1 per day. 7 5C Binder, including twine, per acre for 10 acres. 12 2G Wagons we own, three at 50 cents per d:! v. 5 7 SCO 7( As will be noted, boarding the n'.en is not included because most of the men Lcardcd the in solves Year 11*03. Maehiner.v for tilling.$15 Of, Kight men, four at $1 and four at $1.50 per day . $0 0C Farm team force, including three teams at $1 per day. 7 5C Hinder, including twine for 10 aeres.... 13 SC Wagons we own, three at Doc per cay.. 3 75 Total.$65 75 Comparing the two accounts for j 1304 and 1SM13, we notice a difference | in total cost of $5.05 in favor of this j season's work. in making out ar. i itemized account of this nature and ! comparing it with former years we must take into consideration the vari ; ations in prices of both labor and ■ prices of materials purchased. As will | be observed, there is a slight differer.es 1 in binder, including twine; this is ac | counted for in difference in price of twine and the amount used. Some years twine will be a little lower than ethers and the crop somewhat heavier, but as a rule it costs somewhere around $13 to cut the crop with the corn harvest er. Taking into consideration the variation in prices of materials and la bor, the two years compare very fa vorably in respect to cost. As our corn field this year was with in 20 rods of the silo, we were able lo move the work along very rapidly with two teams and three wagons, ihe same as last year, thus making the } cost in this respect practically the same, I says Ohio Farmer. We found by chang I ing; around, in throwing the corn on in the field, one man could do the work abQut as easily as two had dene it formerly, and in this way reduced the extra hired force oue man. Tn making : a comparison of the two years’ ac j count, it w ill be noted that we have fig ] ured in our own labor and tools at a j fair price, not that we care to add to the cost of filling the silo, but it gives a better idea as to the exact expense. If the regular farm force, including in particular our own labor and rental on tools, were subtracted from the to tal expense it would be seen that the cost would he materially reduced. THE DAIRYMAN’S HARVEST. Under Right Management the Most Kone-y May Be Made in the Winter Time. This should he the harvest time for men who are keeping cows for profit. Those who are making the most money with their cows practice winter dairy ing. says John Michels, instructor in dairying, Michigan Agricultural col lege. Winter butter sells for about eight cents per pound higher than summer butter, hence the wisdom of producing the bulk of the butter during the winter. YY livru tuno ii vnuvu iu me ia.ll will yield milk more days of the year than when they freshen early in spring. This, because they are fed heavier, which puts them in best condition to produce a good flow of milk the sum mer following. The result is that the cows will yield milk almost up to the next calving. It the cows freshen in the fall, the winter ration should consist of at least one-third grain, one-third succulent feeds, like silage and roots, and the balance corn stover, clover hay, or other roughage. Where winter dairy ing is to be made a success the cows must be housed in warm, well venti lated stables. CRAIN AND HAY FEED. How to Arrange Box in Which They May Be Mixed—Good for Milch Cows. The practice of cutting hay or straw and mixing it with the grain feed and wetting down with water is well un derstood by farm ers and stock - keepers in many parts of the country. A box two feet deep, 18 inches -wide and seven feet long will be large enough to mix the feed for five or six animals. Have the box wider at the top than at the bot tom, says Farm and Home. Wet the cut hay or straw with water, sprinkle on the feed and shake thoroughly. A few roots in addition to this ration for milch cows will be a fine thing. The Asparagus Bed. Now is the time to burn off the as paragus beds and clean the ground thoroughly, applying manure plenti fully. All brushes or weeds that have net been cleared from the ground will serve as harboring places for mice an<f i insects.—Midland Farmer. I HOW TO DRESS THE HAJR. The Pompadour Still with Us, But It Is Not Worn So High as Formerly. The coiffure is the puzzle of the hour to the feminine mind. Mme. la Mode has issued her edict that the pompadour with the rat must go. save tor the grande dame with her white hair, patrician face and velvet gown. But for once the fem inine world rebels. The pompadour, properly dressed, gives a girl an air of distinction. Very few faces can stand hair demurely part ed in the middle and knotted low on the nape of the neck. As a result the really clever girl works out a compromise be tween the higli dressed hair and the low. while the girl who does not know how to do the correct thing clings to her pompadour in the front and drops her back hair on the nape of her neck—a combination which is startling, to say the least, and leaves an ugly space be tween pompadour and knot. One of the most plea -mg compromises shows the rat removed from the pdm padour and the front hair Marcelled just as if the rat were to be used. It is then parted on the side (and. by the way. neither the right nor the iett side is obligatory; a girl must study her face before deciding where to place the part i, then the hair is drawn back lightly and knotted on the nape of the neck, but not too low. Sometimes no part appears, but the pompadour, minus the rat. is waved in three putts, these puns are not ugnt, : but the finger or comb is run through them to secure a light, fluffy, waved ef fect. One puff is drawn down slightly over the forehead, and the other two run hack from the temp'es. or, if the face needs a different treatment, the three puffs run around the brow like a frame, fluffed and waved so that they practical ly overlap each other. With this dress ing of the pompadour the hair may be worn in a flat figure eight on top of the head, or the waving may continue over the crown and back of the head and be caught in with the back hair in a figure eight on the nape of the neck. This figure eight should not extend be low the junction of the collar with the gown. SHAPING CHILD'S NOSE. A. Little Care Can Do Wonders in the Way of Changing This Feature. The child's nose can be made as shapely as you please, but it must he | molded day by day and squeezed and pressed into shape or it will not be as it ought to be. Never let the nose become closed. Difficulty in breathing is sure to dilate the nostrils. They will stand out so as to spoil the symmetry of the face. The way to mend it is by constant working upon it. Do not irritate it, nor make it red, inflamed or sore. But at night, before going to bed, massage the sides of the nose, lifting it and pressing it into Grecian shape. The straight Grecian nose is the pretty , nose of to-day. And the woman whose nose turns up or down, or lies flat, is . the woman who needs to put in a lit tle time massaging her nose. Remember always'that the cartilage is soft and that you can flktten the nose at a blow. In the same way, you can lift it and mold it into nice shape. The eyebrows can always be made nice, and in the case of a little child the eyebrows are susceptible of much ] treatment. They can be curved and made as pretty as one would want to see. Flowers and Plumage. When a combination of tints is re quired, plumage is generally resorted to, flowers of a different color from the hat shape being mostly reserved for trimming under the brim. For this purpose, pink or yellow roses are often chosen, and also white and palest pink camelias, with their own green leaves. A somewhat daring harmony consists in the choice of two long os trich tips, one of a bright rose pink, the other a brilliant copperish red, as trimming ior a cigar-oiown leu. i have also seen a dark moss-green felt hat trimmed with three tips, one tur quoise blue, another saffron yellow and the third a lighter moss-green shade. * In both cases the feathers were fas- , tened in front of the crown so as to curve slightly forward over the brim, ' which was turned up in front and flat- ' tened down behind. The brown hat had liberty ribbon to match, bound ' round the base of the crown, crossed at the back, where the ends passed through slits in the felt, to be knotted together lower down and hang in streamers over the shoulders. — Mil linery Trade Review.

Sweeping, dusting, scrubbing and all that must be done with the shoulders thrown back, but as a rule the first tiling a woman does is to contract her shoul ders. Then she grows narrow chested and wails over her shape lost in doing drudgery. When sweeping, especially, hear in mind that one must stand straight. Then grasp the broom, and instead of doing work from the elbows down, as is so commonly the case, let the strokes be broad and firm, the strength coming from the shoulders. It Is enough to bend the head to.watch the broom; it is quite unnecessary to stoop, so says the Chicago Journal. It will take a woman who has swept for a long time some practice to over come the wrong way. and adapt herself to the right, but she can. And after a time she will find that her chest is broad "NO NEED TO GET ROUND-SHOUL DERED.” ening. and her whole poise is better in stead of being worse. Dusting is an exercise that will do as much to teach a woman to lean properly as any that is taught in a gynasiuru. Here again the thing to remember is that any leaning must be done from the waist, not from the shoulders. In dusting the furniture of a whole room many different postures are taken, and if a woman cares enough about her looks to take a little pains she can learn a great deal about grace in bending side wise and down. Done from the waist and hips it will develop the hips and give a good waist line. One thing I would say here is that a woman cannot be too particular about having the windows open, so that she can get plenty of fresh air while doing housework. The work Js invigorating, and there should bo good air taken into the lungs while they are supplying the body. Moreover, cleaning, of course, makes a great deal of dust, anu as much as pos siblethis should bedriven into a draught and so out. that it may not be taken into the system. Scrubbing is one of the best exercises for developing the muscles of the arms and making the arms well rounded. It also calls the shoulder muscles into play tad develops the chest so that a hollow aeck will fill out to pretty lines. The lungs are given opportunity to ex pand and the whole frame benelits.

A PARAGUAYAN REVOLUTION Heads of Army and Navy Dragged Ashore by a Single Shirt x Collar. During a recent revolution in Paraguay, according to a correspondent, a minister of war and the admiral oi a tieet were captured when swimming for liberty and dragged from the river "by a single shirt collar.” The whole Paraguayan navy was captured at the name time. The plot was hatched in Huenos Ayres, says the correspondent. One dark night a steamer sailed from the port of Da Plata bearing several hundred patriots, with Krupp held pieces, rifles und ammunition. When the boat got near that historic spot, llu maita, which played such an important part in the war that ended in the down fall and death of the Dictator Lopez, she encountered the entire Paraguayan navy. This navy consisted of a steam barge seized from a private river company and manned by 100 men. It was commanded by the minister of war, who turned him self into an admiral for the occasion. A characteristic South American fight took place. At the first shot the war minister and the admiral jumped overboard and tried to swim ashore. Hut the pair were caught by the victors and dragged out of the water by the single shirt collar mentioned above. -— • TOO MUCH PROSPERITY.
