Newsy Notes Concerning the Farm asd
of Especial Uterest to the Pa
cific Coast Husbmdniaa,
Jt will be a sign of progressive firm
in? when the owner of swine saves
clover ior his hogs in winter, or goes
further and preserves in a silo BWiet
corn, with which to winter and help
his hoge. The possibilities of hog- j
rearms with the right kind of eneiUge j
are beyond reckoning.
Never grow trees of different kindu j
together until satisfied one does not
injure the other, as is frequently th^ I
case when plums are grown near:
peaches, thus inducing the curculio
to sometimes attack the latter. A
single wild cherry tree near an apple
orchard will provide a harboring
place for caterpillars, which finally in
jure the apple orchard.
There is a time to market produce,
and that must be regarded if success
lis hoped for. It is decidedl ' best to j
market aa much produce iw possible
I in the immediate vicity of one's home,
and to sell directly to the consumer.
In this way usually better prices are
maintained, as there are no middle
men to get their shaiv, and there is
also the advantage of dealing with peo
pie whose standing is fairly known.
' But even if lower prices must be taken j
as a rule it is better to sell near home |
than to take the risk of marketing at
a distance.
The value of the food is not in the
available material contained therein j
for the production oi meat or milk
only, but aUo in the amount and qual
ity "of manure derived therefrum. It
has been estimated that one-third of
ihe food eaten goes into the manure.
As the manure, then, is simply the i
food stored away for future use, it is
important that in order lo drive the
greatest benefit from the loud manure
shuiild be- carefully managed to pre-
Tent loss. As the food is not exposed
1 to injury by air and water the manure
is equally deserving of cue. The j
manure-lie*p is the savings bank of j
the farm.
If it is desired to have poppies very ;
early, it is well to take " time by the |
forelock" and prepare the bed in the
fall. Sprinkle ihe seed on the top of
the ground just before winter fairly j
sets in, oi it can be done later. The i
finest poppied I have ever giown were
Mown during a January thaw, while
the bed was free from snow for a day '
or two. Poppy seeds arc very liny.
;in il planted tou ikep will not come j
up, or if not aufficientJy covered soon
dry up , but the rains and the melting j
snow teem to regulate the matter
nicely. U-e as little seed as your con
science will let you, else the work of'
thinning out will be tiresome. Poppies j
should always be sown whtre they
are to bloom, fur tkey are very dif
ficult to transplant,
Feed warm swill to your pigs in a '
warm place. Feed often and but lit
tle at a time, so that the pigs wiV
always come to the trough with li j
good appetite, and there will be noth- ■,
ing left to eour. Feed the swill as i
fust as it is made, so that it doesn't j
get sour. Try to get your litter of j
pigs in March or April, that they may |
be tit for tale in eaily winter. Breed
once a year, as this is a sufllcient
ttrain on the vitality, and breed to i
mature parents. If you breed from j
too young parents you increase the I
probabilities of infirmity and disease
10 which the pig is liable. Whenever
you bring a new pig on the farm,
shut it up by itself for at least three
weeks, until you have ascertained it
to be perfectly healthy.
The pulling of feathers is a pure
, habit, which is brought on in flocks
i that hare not enoi.gh to occupy their
time and attention. When they once
get a ta-te of the meaty end of the
: feather they are liable to extend their
! picking to something mure than
feathers, taking advantage of the
naked condition of their companions j
; by nipping at ex )osed bloody parts,
and allowing the poor hens no peace
till they or iheir mates are taken oat
of the pen. During the winter con
finement of fowls they should be kept
as busy as pos-ible by scattering their
grain among leaves and chaff, co that
; hard scratching will be necessaiy on
their part in order to get enougu to
eat. This will take their time and be
i liable to keep them out ol mischief.
i As a further prevention, tome trim
[ the edges of the beak*, so that when
I they attempt to poll a feather it will |
i slip tnrougu and they cannot hold it.
Another remedy is to put on the fowl
,an appliance called the poultry bit,
: which can be obtained of almost any
! dealer in poultry supplies.
If any person were to chain an ani- j
1 mal to a stake in a field and leave it to |
; shift for itself, then to watch the ani
mal until it geis thin and decrepid
from loss of llefh and strength, it in
quite probable that the humane so- j
ciety would be after him with properly j
def erved punishment. Yet this is j
what thousands of farmers are doing
with their fruit orchards, of course
barring the difference between the in
satiate tree and living animal. Like
the latter the tree is chained to one
locality and cannot go abroad for
. food, but fortunately it has n« sense
of suffering, or at least none that we
can appreciate. And yet even for a
tree there must be something akin to
■ pain in the process of slow starvation |
the seeking by exhausted rootlets j
of food that cannot be found. It takes
an enormous amount of various ma
nures to form fruit and seeds. The
leafy part of the tree may mostly
come from carbonic acid gas of the
atmosphere, but the stone fruits need
a good deal of potash. Grapes and
i peart require a considerable amount
'of phosphate in addition. There is
perhaps, no place 011 the hum where, ■
a good dressing of manure would de
greater good I ban in ah old apple
orchard where (lie trees seem to b
running out.
Much of the feeding of chickens is
of soft food. It is easily picked by
the little fellows, and they can quickly
fill their crops from a dab of wet meal
thrown on the ground before them.
This too rapid eating is one of the
worst evils in artificial feeding young
chickens. They gorge themselves be
come surfeited and die. We have
found whole wheat grains much bet
ter, beginning for two or three days
by breaking the grain in two pieces.
It does not matter, however, if the lit
tle fellow is forced to do this work
himself. He will struggle with a
grain of wheat or oat grain for two or
three minutes, and at last, after a des
perate struggle, swallow it. The very
hardness of the whole grain keeps his
food from compacting to his crop.
We would not, however, feed whole
corns to wry young chicks, nor in
deed corn ground into meal, as their
principal diet.
At present many country people
want to know how to make quickly
vinegar out of cider. Apples vary in
the amount, of sugar they contain.
Some that make thin and watery ci
uer. or are largely diluted with water,
will never make strong vinegar unless
reinforced with more sweet. Any
course sugar or molasses will do, as
whatever impurities it contains must
bo thrown up to the surface in violent
fermentation, and may be skimmed
oft". if the cider is all right, place it
in a place, where some may be drawn
off and lured back every day, taking
pains to bring it into contact with the
air as rich ss possible. For this pur
pose it is often filtered over coarse
shavings or straw. The oxygen the
air starts first the vinous or alcoholic ■
fermentation, which is quickly fol- i
lowed by the acid fermentation. The !
more sweet there is in the cider the
stronger the fermentation and the
sharper the vinegar. If you have old
cider that don't turn readily into vine- j
gar, put it into an old molasses hogs- j
head or barrel, and give it another j
trial. There are various methods of
keeping cider from working. If your
old cider has been subjected to any of
these, it is better to make or buy a
barrel of new. The cider that has
been doctored to keep it sweet is hard
t > change into vinegar, and is not of
the best when mute. The common
practice of putting the cider barrel in
ihe coldest corner of the cellar, and
then letting it work itself into vinegar
without help, is * not one to be gener
ally rcc jmmended.
A correspondent of the Country
Gentleman writes lrorn California how
he saves and cures peaches in the sun.
He cays neaely all evaporators are
abandoned end the rays of the sun
are depended on and answer as good a
purpose as the best system of artificial
heat. Ho goes on at length to s*y how
th' fruit is gathered, peaches being
I Is cwn crop, that it is bleached by
use of sulphur fumes half an hour,
and the sun dries large fruit that is in
halves id three days' time. California
evidently has a great advantage in it*
warm sun and dry climate, but while \
they depend on the sun's rays only,
they have not any decided advant
ages over the evaporating machines
now in xogue in Oregon. They do all
the work of preparation and laying on
tray?, and while they place these trays
in the sun the evaporating concerns
hold them mere conveniently and the
cost of wood is small. The Co3t of j
handling is the same in either case. |
There was a short time last summer
when sun drying was efficient, but
not to be depended on. The sun in
August can be utilized here in con
nection with evaporating by heat.
Last summer when peach plums
were threatening to spoil because
there was not evaporating space to
hold them, the expedient was resorted
to of spreading the fruit cut and pitt
ed upon boards and partially drying
it thus. It was found to be an ad
vantage, the fruit partially sun-dried
was even better than that put at first
into the evaporator. If we have a
good tun it can be utilized to dry fruit
and it can be bleached as well before
sun drysng as when dried in an evap
In making calculation? for any in
vestment, it is -.lways well to con
cider both sides carefully—the proba
ble cost and the probable returns the
investment will yield. If by one
method of procedure it costs five
cents per pound, and the price of
beef gives promise of fluctuating be
tween 4$ anil oj cents per pound, the
investment is not a promising one.
Again, if it costs $100 to raise a com
mon horse in a common way to the
age of four years, and there is no
promise of more than $125 for him,
while it costs $125 to raise a fine draft
colt to the age of three years, anu
such colts readily bell at $175, it is not
bard to see which investment gives
the greatest promise of profit. In this
question of relative profit, the Farm
ers' Advance gives the following inter
esting incident: A gas company hav
ing a quantity of pipe to be hauled
some distance offered what they sup
posed fair rates by the hundred
pounds for the work. Light team?,
or what many call general-purpose
teams, could draw an average of 2,200
pounds, earning $3.30, which, after
deducting $1.59 per day for driver and
his board, left $1.80 for use of team,
wagon and harness. Any one will
say that the team would be fed at a
loss. Parties having heavy teams of
grade draft horses took the contract
at the company's rates, and drew on
an average of 3,800 pounds, earning
$5.70 per deducting $1.50 for driver
and his board, leaves $4.20 for team,
wagon and harness. This is a differ
ence of $2.40 in faxor of the draft
team. "Jl ' " '

Bales for Cultivating the Most Lasting:
form of Lovellnrva.
No cosmetics are so capable of en
hancing beauty as the smile of good
temper and a desire to please.
Beauty of expression is more than
any other form of loveliness, capable
of cultivation. A woman may not
have perfectly regular features, but
her face will be so lit up with the
beauty of goodness that she can not
fail to please, if she strive to obey the
spirit of some such rules as the follow
ing, which may be multiplied or di
minished according to particular cases.
1. Learn to govern youselves and to
be gentle and patient.
2. Guard your tempers, especially
in seasons of ill-health, irritation and
trouble, and soften them by prayers
and a sense of your own short-comings
and errors.
ft Heverr speak or act in anger until
you have prayed over your words or
4. Remember, that valuable as is
the gift of speech, silence is often
more valuable.
5. Do not expect too much from
others, but forbear and forgive, as you
desire forbearance and forgiveness
6. Never retort a sharp or angry
word. It is the second -word that
makes the quarrel.
7. Beware of the first disagreement.
8. Learn to speak in a gentle tone
of voice.
9. Learn to say kind and pleasant
things whenever opportunity offers.
10. Study the characters of each and
sympathize with all in their troubles, j
however small.
11. Do not neglect little things, if
they can affect the comfort of others
in the smallest dogree.
12. Avoid moods and pets and fits j
of sultriness. •
13. Learn to deny yourself and pre
fer others.
14. Beware of meddlers and tale- 1
15. Never charge a bad motive, if a ;
good one is conceivable.
--16. Bo gentle and firm with chil- j
The last rule refers to children, but
often a husband is far more difficult to
manage. If, however, a wife can keep
her temper, and persevere in her ef
forts to please, she will in the end
conquer by kindness. — From "Five Tal

The rrinrlpal Characteristics of Denmark**
Capital City.
We soon found ourselves in a fine
city of 300,000 people, well built, well
paved, and in every way worthy to be
the capital of a thriving though not
largo kingdom. The people have quite
a cosmopolitan style about them, and
move about with a brisk, business air.
Shop _ windows make pretty displays
and signs are gaudy. It is astonish
ing how four or five names predomin
ate all over the town. In Norway you
call a boy "Olaf" and the chances are
he will answer you. Here yon may
take off your hat to "Mr. Olserr." lie
will either return your salute or ho
will say you are mistaken, his name is
"Jensen." Ole Olsens and .fan Jensens
are everywhere. It seemed to me that
out of every hundred signs more than
half of them were '-Olsens," "Jansens."
"Petersons." and one or two other
patronymics. Sometimes "" Jan>e,i"
took a variation and called himself
"Johansen." and a Petersen became a
"Pcdersen." But the dodge could not
fool a knowing one — they were '•Jan
sen" and "Petersen'' still, just -as
••Smythe" is surely "Smith." Stores
are, crowded closely together, and
basements are evidently as popu
lar as first floors. All that is
required is enough of the base
ment window above the sidewalk to
make a pretty display, and the below
ground is a good locality for a money
changer, a meerschaum dealer, or an
ivory vender. The streets in the old
town are narrow and the sidewalks very
contracted. But they are all kept clean,
and as many people walk in the^road
•.vay as on the footpath; this is especi
ally in the evening when wagon traffic is
mostly over. The streets were gen
erally pretty well peopled, probably
more so while we were there than
usual, owing to the exhibition now
coming to a close. In the new quar
ters the streets are quite broad and
the houses rarely under four stm-ies in
height, live being the usual number.
These newer buildings are of pretty
modern architecture, but built in solid
blocks, there being very few separate
houses with yards or grass plats.
Looked down upon from one of several
church towers the city is very pictur
esque. I chose the one known as the
•'Hound Tower"' for my observations
because of its easy ascent over a broad
winding walk upon brick arches, up
which Peter the Great rode on horse
back and his Queen, Catherine, in a
This tower is only 110 feet high.
By stepping the outer edge-of the
walk I found it 330 yards. The old
town from it looks very quaint
with its tall houses built on narrow,
irregular streets, of lofty, steeply
pitched roofs, with two. three and
sometimes four stories of trap win
dows cut through the red bent tiles.
Circling about the old city is the finely
built newer town with massive blocks
of buildings all in black slate roofing.
There are some fine public buildings
in the city and the old Rosenburg pal
ace is tilled with mementoes of the
I Kings and Queens of the land, many
I of them rich and interesting. — Carter
11. Harrison, in Chicago Mail.

I linn .1 Huge Beast Was Chastised for Kilt
ing It* Keeper.
Some elephants resemble men in
their liability to sudden outbursts of
passion, and in their exhibition of re
! morse when, the passion having sub
sided, they see the results of their vio
j lent temper. An illustration of an
elephant's violence and contrition is
given by General George Bell in his
"Hough Notes of an Old Soldier,'
written while he was serving in India.
While the party was in camp a
mahout went with his elephant to cut
forage. As ho was binding it in bun
\ dies the elephant began to help him
i self, and knocked about the bundles
I already tied up.
The mahout punished the beast (or
j lisobedicnce by a blow on the shins,
! which so enraged the elephant that ho
seized the man with his trunk, dashed
him to the ground, and trampled him
j to death.
No sooner had he killed his keeper
than he repented, roared, and bolted
for the jungle to hide himself. Six
other elephants, guided by their ma- .
hoots, followed him. On being driven
j into a corner he surrendered, and was
| led into camp a prisoner, and chains
! were placed on his legs.
j Then came his punishment. An ele-
I pliant was placed on either side, each
j holding ■ heavy iron chain. -As the
j dead body of the mahout was laid on
j the grass before him the elephant
j roared loudly, being perfectly aware
i of what he had done.
A mahout ordered the two elephants
to punish the murderer. - Lifting the
t «-o heavy chains high in the air, with
| their trunks, they whipped him with
these iron whips until he made the
camp echo with his roars of pain. He
was then picketed by himself, and an
iron chain attached to his hind leg,
which he dragged after him on the
