THE PLEBEIAN PEANUT.
It Pltss a Usefal Pat a the Esemsey of
Mae sad Beast.
The plebeian peontt, which rejoices
in such other homely nameh as earth
nut, groundnut, ground pea, goober
and pindar, has assumed a new dignity,
having recently been honored as
the subject of a special report by
one of the experiment fficers of the
national department of agriculture.
The report corrects some prevalent
mistakes as to this little article of con
sumption, gives astonishing statistics
as to its value as a food product, and
presents many interesting facts as to
It is pleasant to be informed, first of
all, that the peanut is not a nut at all,
but a pea, and that Its shell is not a
sheli, buta pod. Itis alsowell to know
.cd that while cotton, Indian corn, pota
ex" toes and tobacco have usually been
the considered the four plants of commer
cial importance which America has
be given to the world, the peanut must
ns be added, as the weight of authority
ing fixes its birthplace *in Brazil. The
aid crop has become of primary impor
opt tance since 1866, and Virginia, North
vas Carolina and Tennessee produce the
my largest part of it. There are seven
hat varieties cultivated, some of them bunch
nd. and some running vines. The yield
sa* of this underground pea is astonishing,
ird and the amount consumed is a testi
rm monial to its popularity. The yearly
the production here is about 4,000,000
bushels of 22 pounds, which supply the
nd present demand in this country. This,
x-. however, is but a small portion of the
re. world's crop. The exportation from
,w Africa and India to Europe in 1893
amounted to nearly 400,000,000 pounds.
The crop of the world may be safely
8 estimated at 600,000,000 pounds.
The value of the homely little ground
pea, however, becomes especially ap
parent when its uses are considered.
) It is sorted in the factory into four
di- grades, the first, second and third be
ing sold to vendors of the roasted pea
nut, either directly or through jobbing
pa houses. The fourth grade is sold to
a confectioners, and after their manipu
lation reappears as peanut candy,
) burnt almonds and in cheaper grades
of chocolates. The report says in this
connection: "The extent of the use of
the peanut by the American people
will be more fully appreciated when it
is remembered that they use 4,000,000
bushels of nuts yearly (at a cost to the
consumers of $10,000,000), which do not
form a part of the regular articles of
food but are eaten at odd times." The
planter uses the nut as a fattener for his
hogs and the vine as peanut hay for
his stock, and the feeding value is in
creased when some of the nuts are
cured and fed with the hay. Millions
of bushels are used in the old world
S for the production of oil, which is
regarded as equal to olive oil. In fact,
great quantities are used, unknown to
d the consumer, instead of the latter,
Marseilles alone taking 230.000,000
pounds a year for the making of al
leged olive oil. In India, ]urope,
Brazil and this country the oil is used
medicinally. It is employed by manu
facturers in fulling cloth. It makes a
good lighting fluid, and is largely
used by the manufacturers of soap
and as a lubricant in machine
shops. The oil cake is used in Germany
for fattening cattle and sheep. It is
pronounced an excellent cattle food.
A grade known as "peanut meal" is
made by grinding the hulls, immature
peanuts, and those of inferior grades
and a certain quantity of sound nuts
mixed with other ingredients. The
residue, known as "peanut cake,"
makes good soup, griddle cake4, muf
fins, etc., and is one of the most nutri
tive foods for human as well as animal
consumption. The report says: "Al
though the experiment made with pea
nut meal and biscuits as food for the
German army was not so successful as
- to induce the authorities to adopt it as
a part of the rations, still analysis has P
shown conclusively that it is a most
nourishing food for man, and as com
pared with other well-known forms of
vegetable and animal food it has a
high nutritive value." From all of
which it appears that this little nut or
pea, which hitherto has been looked
down upon as the stock in trade of the
street corner vender, the food of the 0
gallery god, and the luxury of the cir
cus, has other and higher uses and is
one of the important staples of com- s1
merce and plays a dignified and useful la
part in the economy of man and beast. i

the the happy home of James McPherron.
re. Four months ago the daughter of the farm.
ýnt fly, a happy girl of sixteeon, was strickea
n with Bt. Vitus' dance. The leading physl
ica cians wore consulted but without avaiL She
*d grew pale and thin under the terrible nery
ous strain and was fast losing her mental
powers. In fact the thought of placing her
in an asylum was seriously considered. Her
of case has been so widely talked about that
Lll, the report of her atre was like modernizing

Her afliction grew into St. Vitus' dance

.8 STANCHIONS FOR COWS.
M atirig Dairy Animals Comfortable sa
S ~epiasg theom cl,.
Clean cowi and comfortable cows
the two factors go together in making
the dairy business profitable. I have
bi worked hard to keep cows clean in
their stalls, but could never sueceed
until I had them hitched on a plat
form at least eight inches above the
ad bottom of the gutter, and arranged so
is that their hind feet would come just at
* the rear edge of the platform. Then
" no manure falls upon the platform and
. the cow is always dry and clean.
It requires some skill, however, to so
rv. arrange the cows as to stanchions, or
tal ties, that they will stand naturally,
ter and for most of the time, with their
[er hind feet just at the rear edge of the
iat platform. The upright stanchions will
ng accomplish this, and where they are
made to swing from side to side they
ek- allow considerable freedom of move
ment to the cows, but at the best they
as are not wholly comfortable, and to do
of her best a dairy cow must at all times
n be comfortable. There is another plan
Is' which is shown in the accompanying
illustration. The cows are hitched
with chains that slide up and down
lt upon a rod, two cows in each wide
sh stall, or one in a narrow stall as
si. preferred. There is a solid partition
ýi between the stalls and the cribs,
a hinged door admitting the head
i of each cow to her crib at feeding
I time. When the ration has been eaten
the doors are closed and buttoned,
which forces the cows to stand back
r. until their hind feet come to the edge
f, of the gutter, and to lie down also in
in that situation. When the doors are
d closed any manure that has fallen
i upon the platform while the cows
a have been standing ahead feeding is
e scraped into the gutter, and the cows
left until the next feeding.
e Where the manure cellar is under
l the cattle it will be found most con
y venient to have the manure traps in
s the raised walk, as shown, rather tlhn
a in the bottom of the gutter, where
ir they are buried beneath the manure
ý and filthy to handle. Handy shelves
' that are hinged and folded against the
wall when not in use are shown at the
rear of the raised walk. The doors
admitting the cows' heads to the cribs
in front will be found exceedingly
convenient when feeding grain, roots
or ensilage. One can then put the
ration in the crib without molestation
from the horns or nose of the animal,
eager to get at its breakfast or dinner.
The door can then be unbuttoned and
allowed to swing in against the side
of the crib, when the cow can come
forward and eat. 'The crib can be
made to fold down against the outside
of the partition if more room is desired
at any time in the feeding floor.-

The Greatest Medical Discovery
of the Age.
ONALD EllEDY, of OXSURY, MASS.,
Has discovered in one of our common
pasture weeds a remedy that cures every
kind of Humor, from the worst Scrofula
down to a common Pimple.
He has tried it in over eleven hundred
cases, and never failed except in two cases
(both thunder humor.) He has now in his
possession over two hundred certificates
of its value, all within twenty miles of
Boston. Send postal card for book.
A benefit is always experienced from the
first bottle, and a perfect cure is warranted
when the right quantity is taken.
When the lungs are affected it causes
shooting pains, like needles passing
through them; the same with the Liver or
Bowels. This is caused by the ducts be
ing stopped, and always disappears in a
week after taking it. Read the label.
If the stomach is foul or bilious it will
cause squeamish feelings at first.
No change of diet ever necessary. Eat
the best you can get, and enough of it.
Dose, one tablespoonful in water at bed,
time. Sold by all Druggists.
