How to Peed Stock-The Breeding of Fowls—Foundation Walls for Stables and Barns. The simplest way to fumigate a room is to heat an iron shovel very hot, and then pour vinegar upon it, drop by drop. The steam arising from this is a disin fectant. Doors and windows should he opened that it may escape. It has been estimated that cattle disease in the past forty-six years has cost Great Britain $500,000,000. Commissioner Col man recommends a cattle quarantine against all Europe, which has been the hot l»ed ol diseases, which afterward afflicted this country. A handsome low serene is made by painting a large cardl>oard a sky-blue, then painting a spray of daisies ami clover blossoms on it. Then set this in a frame of plush about an inch and a half wide, and this is to be placed in a light ebony frame with a standard. Roots should not be fed with straw or poor hay, as they are too much alike in composition. Feed the roots with clover or good hay, ami give the more concen trated food with the straw. It requires more skill to be successful in feeding poor than rich kinds of food. Foundation walla for harna and stables should go down deep on low soils that are not well drained. Many walls go to ruin by failure to go a little'deeper for the foundation. An exceptionally cold win ter may cause damage from frost, and it is always well to bank up as much as possible. Unless the shocks of corn are made firm in the field they will he blown down. A little extra care in shocking will save much loss in fallen shocks. Wherever possible haul the shocks to the barn, as corn fodder is always injured to a certain extent, no matter how well it may be shocked. To make a nice teacake, hike one pound of flour, half a pound of butter, one nut meg. one teaspoonful of saleratus dis solved in a cup of sour cream. Rub to gether the butter and sugar and flour. Roll out and cut into rounds, dredging sugar over them before baking. Bake in a good oven. The heavy' breeds of ducks can be kept within an inclosure, with a very low’ fence, and, if given a trough for bathing purposes, they will thrive and do well if ted on grass or bulky food. Too much grain is detrimental. The Pekin breed seems best adapted on farms that have no ponds or streams of water. The color of the hog seems to be a mat ter of importance. Experiments show that, contrary to expectation, a black hog, such as the Essex and Berkshire, thrives best in the South, while the white breeds, such as the Chester White, Yorkshire and Cheshire, thrive best in the North. The Poland-China, a spotted hog, and the Jersey Red are preferred in the West ern states. A drink that is truly refreshing for one suffering from sore throat or cold is made by pouring a quart of boiling water over a carefully washed handful! of Irish moss. Let it stand until the water is cool, then strain through a muslin bag, add sugar and lemon mice, with a few thin slices of lemon, until it is al»out like lemonade; a little cinnamon is considered an addition by some people. A good relish to take with a lunch is made of ham. Pound some pieces of ham in a mortar, just as fine as you can. Season it with pepper and spice, and moisten it with clarified butter. Put this into a mold, or earthen bowl, and press it in very tightly. Put it into the oven for half an hour. Let it get perfectly cold. It can then be cut into thin slices.* It is nice if used for filling for sandwiches. That plush may be '-leaned is a fact of interest; children’s plush coats that have become so led on the front can be softly and delicately sponged with a little borax and water without injury ; a teas}>oonful of powdered borax to nearly a quart of water is the proper proportion ; use a veiy soft sponge, and, by the way, a B}>onge may be softened by boiling it in clear water; then take it out ami rinse it in several waters, if not softened sufficiently repeat the boiling and rinsing process. A most excellent pudding is made by stewing one pound of prunes until they are so tender that the stones may he re moved without difficulty. Take one quart of sweet milk and subtract a tea cupful ; into this stir enough flour to make it like thick paste, then mix it with the rest of the milk; beat four eggs very light and add, and lastly stir in the prunes, over which you have first sifted a little flour. Boil or steam for two hours. Serve hot, with some highly flavored sauce; venilla or wine sauce is preferred. A grape trellis is a permanent institu tion, and the extra expense of making it right pays big profits yearly for a long time. How much wall it cost to put up a few boards over a favorite vine that an nually just barely misses ripening its fruit? That by warding off cold rains and dews and checking the passing off of heat into space will probably make the grapes one or two weeks earlier. This semi-protection is also in many places a preventative of mildew. The finest grapes grow on vines trained to house walls un der the projecting eaves and cornices. A hen smoker is something that all poultry farms should have. Tobacco smoke is death to lice. It is also death to the fowl if confined until the smoke is thick enough to kill the lice. Here is the description of a convenient smoker which almost any one who is handy with saw', hammer and nails may construct. The smoker is made in two compartments. The upper one for the fowl has a hole cut in one side of the fowl’s head, ami one in the floor to admit the smoke form be low. A pan of live coals is placed in the lower compartment, a handful of tobacco leaves or stems placed on them and the door closed, A few holes should be bored in the door near the bottom to admit air. A sliding door on the back of the box is so constructed that when opened for the purpose of inserting or taking out the fowl, it closes the hole which admits the smoke from below', and when closed after putting in another fowl the hole is open ed and admits the smoke. We apprehend that this smoker can be used to great ad vantage when a large number of hens are sitting. Another use to which such a box may be put is for ridding house plants of the green aphis, and in that case one side of the box may have a pane of glass inserted so that the operator can tell when enough smoke has been ad mitted.
