A VENTILATOR SHAFT.
Modification of a Splendid Idea 9na (ted Not Long Ago by the Han as Experiment Station. The experience of some dairymen remlndsnieof astovyablueksinithiised to tell of an acquaintance of his, who aid that he stabled his horses in a barn so open that you couJd throw a cat through it anywhere, they never had anything the matter with- them; but after awhile he felt able to build more to his notion, and in the new building the frost covered the inside, and his horses always were in diffi culties. Well, tt is the old story so long at the cows are stabled in the open shed nd are reasonably cared for, no trouble is experienced, but when thej c; lijjj yn-. Ill i BARN VENTILATOR SHAFT. re put in quarters such as wintei dairying demands, then trouble be gins. I do not know that the moisture which manifests itself by congealing 01 the roof and walls, is any serious" mat ter of itself, and this could be over come by filling in the space as sug gested. It shows, however, that thi ventilation is imperfect; and to rem edy this and retain the warmth gen erated by the confined animals is nol so easy a matter. If the ventilatoi shaft is brought down near the floor it will probably be carried to e point where the air does not differ in tem perature from that in the 6haft, anl so of course will not work. The Kansas experiment station of fered a suggestion, of which the illus tration is a modification. At the point uhfre the shaft passes through tht ceiling-, a hole is cut and provided with a shutter opening inward. By opening this more or less, a draft can always b created. A very slight opening woulc make sufficient draft to cause the shaft to take air from the bottom, es pecially if it was a long one. In the case under consideration. 1 would pass the shaft through the mait barn and up betvreen the rafters t( the ridge, terminating in either a cu pola or rirte ventilator. In the illus tration, C represents the ceiling, S tht side of the building, and F the floor In this in stance, a loft is supposed t exist, and it is intended that the shaft shall be carried up to the eaves, anc thence between the rafter to thi ridge, terminating as above. The in side shutter would necessarily be con trolled by two ropes or cords. Rlchart H Mitchell, in Country Gentleman. TIMELY GARDEN NOTES. It is a mistake to rake up the leaves in the wood lot or any other plow where they may be allowed to remain Besides being of value as a winter pro tection, when decayed they odd mwcl to the fertility of the ground. Blackberries and raspberries gron from shoots formed just below ground When transplanting them the miHtakt of setting them too deep, practical! killing them, is not uncommon. Tht roots should be but just below thi surface. In California they have a late ripen ing navel orange called navelencia which, on account of its lateness oi ripening, prolongs the season con siderably. The navel itself owesiti Introduction to the late Willian Bounders. The Snyder blackberry is a populai sort in the northwest, because of iti extreme hardiness tnd its productive ness.

Many common evergreens can in transplanted from the woods with or dinary care if not too large a size bi taken. A plant of three feet, with goot roots, will be more satisfactory thai six-foot one.

Everybody in the oilcloth and linoleum trade knows "the Totter boys," of Phila delphia and New York. Col. lorn Potter, of the former city, who got his title through a staff appointment by a former governor of Pennsylvania, is a thorough Philadelphian, a firm believer in that town in all her in stitutions, big and little, and in her magnifi cent future, but he always helps to circulate a good story on Philadelphia, just the same, savs the New York Commercial. A hustling "free lance" in the life insur ince business was over there the other day trying to write a $20,000 policy in a New York company for & rising young man who holds an important position with the Pot ter company. This was his third or fourth call, and he had his intended victim almost worked up to the point of signing the appli cation. "I'll take the policy," he said, "but I don't wunt it just yet. ' Wait a few weeks. ' "No time like the present time," exclaimed the agent. "Delays are particularly danger out in life insurance matters. I'll tell you what I'll do in your case if you'll make the application now I'll carry the policy myself for you for 30 days." "Oh, I wouldn't have you do that," the roung man protested. "I might die within 30 days, and then where would you and your profits be?" "Oh, that's all right, my boy! I'll take the ritk. You won't die tUat quick. Nobody in Philadelphia ever died in 30 days!"
