Ji Grass For Working Horses.
It seems almost cruel not to give
horses a feed of grass occasionally,
even when they are hard workingat this
season, when grass and clover are at
their prime. Yet every farmer knows
tbat if allowed to run to grass, even
for a few hours, the working horse
will have an attack of scours, will lose
his appetite for the eolid food that
gives him strength, and be incapable
for several days thereafter of doing a
full day's work. Horses are exceed
ingly fond of grass and clover. Some
times, if old bar is scarce, the farmer
tries to economize by cutting some
clover, and after drying it nearly into
hay feeding it in place of tho hay. But
even this has to be given very care
fully or it will work injury. A horse
at work should always be slightly cos
tive. If the excrements grow soft it
means that bis efficiency for work is
lessened. If there is too much cos
tiveness a tablespoonf ul of old process
linseed meal which will give strength
will put the bowels in good condition.
That is better than giving grass or
clover which when green furnish little
strength. It is not till late in the
fall that it is safe to feed new hay to
horses that have hard work to do.

The discovery last summer of a re
markable asteroid, since named Eros,
which periodically approaches the
earth nearer than any other heavenly
body except the moon, has led a Ger
man astronomer, Herr J. Bauschinger,
to suggest that Mars itself should
henceforth be regarded as an asteroid,
instead of as a major planet. The
comparative smallnessof Mars's mass,
and the great eccentricity of its orbit,
are adduced as reasons for consider
ing it at a member 01 tbe asteroid
family. If the asteroids once formed
a single planet, as some have sup
posed, then possibly Mars is simply
the largest existing fragment of the
ancient planet, which traveled an orbit
lying between the earth and Jupiter.
So much of Europe as is interested
in the manufacture of high explosives
is just now engaged in speculating
over the discovery of a new one which
an Austrian chemist is alleged to have
perfected. It is a smokeless power,
free from nkro-glycerine, which over
heating affects but a trifle, and which
is as trustworthy and safe as is com
mon gunpowder. It is positively
smokeless, does not heat the arm in
which it is used, and altogether seems
to have completely filled the bill at
which all manufacturers of explosives
have been aiming. So far the details
of composition and manufacture have
been kept a secret, so far as this coun
try is concerned, at least.
Gardens aa a Fart of tlie Yarn).
No farm is complete without a kitch
en garden. It is very late, but not
too late, to have a good garden. Let
the ground get dry; then break thor
oughly. Use all the manure your
conscience will let you; spread it
broadcast; mix it thoroughly with the
soil. Throw up very light beds just
enough to keep the rainwater from
settling around the little plants.
Plant your seeds, if convenient, just
before night; cover lightly with hand
rake. Small seed should be planted
near the surface. Then be sura to
press the Boil tightly around the seed.
You can do this with a plank. Lay
the plank along on the seed row and
walk upon it, or roll the beds with an
empty barrel. This is easily done and
does good work.
If your soil bakes, loosen it up with
haudrake each side of seed row. No
work in the garden pays better than
this rolling and raking. The rolling
will nearly always secure a good
stand. All gardeners know how im
portant this is. The raking kills weeds
of grass in the sprout as soon as up,
and makes the soil warmer, which is
very important to the health of young
plants.
Turnips, kale, cabbage, collards,
spinach and other salad crops should
be sown in abundance. They are good
tor tne table, tne pantry, tne pigs
and the cows. Beets, beans, onions,
cucumbers, salsify, cantelopes,
squashes, peas, and others, accord
ing to taste, can 'soon furnish variety
and plenty. Look after the garden.
A good garden, a good cow, a few
pigs and hens will almost support any
ordinary family. Southern Cultivator.
Ventilation fcy Windows.
No set rules can bo given as to
whether windows should be opened
from the top or from the bottom. This
will, depend entirely upon whether
the window, when opened, is intended
for an outlet or an inlet, when the
wind is not blowing, windows should
be opened from top and bottom. In this
way the air of the room if it is warmer
than the outside air, will rise and pass
out at the top, the outside air being
heavier will flow in at the bottom. In
summer, when the air of the room is
cooler than that on the outside, the
current will be reversed.
When wind is blowing and the room
contains windows on opposite sides of
the rooms, the windows on the wind
ward side should be opened at tho top
and the one on the leeward side at the
bottom. This current as it passes
through will have an aspiring power
to draw the air of the other parts of
the room toward it. Admitting the
cold air at the top, and letting the foul
air out below seems to contradict the
natural theory of ventilation as before
described; but it must be remembered
that here the force of the wind is
utilized instead of the unequal weights
of columns of hot and cold air.
If the windows are, as more fre
quently occurs, on two adjacent sid es
it is generally best to make the prin
cipal top openings on the side of the
strongest winds and the principal
pottom openings on tne remaining
side. .
When the windows are all on ono
side of the room it is generally better
to make the principal opening at the
top and a smaller one at the bottom
The force of the air admitted through
open single windows may be partially
checked by fastening a piece of board
to the top sash and extending into the
room obliquely upward so as to retard
its fall on the heads of the occupants

Why
Some interesting instances of the
rapid destruction of iron pipes by
carbonic acid in water passing through
have been noted by German engineers.
Near Beuthen, Silesia, a mile and a
quarter of cast iron pipe of average
quality connected a pumping station
with a reservoir, and this pipe began
to leak at the end of two years when
the upper third was found to be deeply
pitted and punctured, the rest being
unaffected. At Johann-on-the-Sarr,
which receives very soft and pure
water from the carboniferous deposits
of the Saarbruck district, the action
on tho iron was made known in a dif
ferent way. The water in a short
time became badly discolored and un
fit for use, and an investigation showed
that the supply at the source was
saturated with carbonic acid, either
free or as bicarbonate.
An Klepliaot Tramp In England.
For nearly a week past the peasants
on, tbe South of England roads have
been amazed at the spectacle of a
small herd of elephants slowly wend
ing their way London ward.
These monster animals have iust
walked the whole distance from
Southampton to Earl's Court, where
they will form part of the Greater
Britain Exhibition.
Their keepers took them through
country lanes and avoided as far as
possible passing through tho larger
towns. Many horses were terrified at
tbe sight of the great quadrupeds. At
night the animals were stabled in farn:
buildings along the route, and several
keepers who had accompanied them
from Africa took care of them on their
trip to London. This is the first time
that a herd of elephants has ever
walked through Southern England.

Scabby Potatoea.
Potato scab is spread in a number
of ways. Scabby seed and ground on
which scabby potatoes have been
grown, will grow a scabby crop.
Manure from stables where stock has
been fed on infested potatoes, will
spread the disease, for the passage of
fungi through the animal system never
destroys the germs. Surface water
flowing from an infested field will
carry the disease to lower land.
Plows and cultivators, unless they are
thoroughly cleaned, will disseminate
the disease, if they have been used in
the cultivation of a diseased crop.
Seed treated with corrosive subli
mate can be planted with safety. The
seed is soaked for one and a half hours
in a solution of two and one-fourth
ounces of corrosive sublimate to fif
teen gallons of water. The potatoes
should be cleaned before being im
mersed. At the expiration of the
time stated, take the potatoes- out of
the solution and spread out to dry.
The potatoes may be cut before or at
ter the soaking. A good plan of mak
ing the solution and soaking the pota
toes is to dissolve the sublimate in two
gallons of hot water and pour it into
an open head barrel. Add thirteen
gallons of water. Now put the pota
toes in a coffee sack and immerse for
the time stated. Stir the solution
from time to time.
But no treatment of the seed will
prevent the crop from scabbing if the
ground is full of scab. The only way
to rid the ground of the fungi is by
putting it to growing a rotation of
crops, such as grass, corn and wheat.
mo root crops snouicr be grown on
such soil. - When potatoes are scabbed
the disease will grow worse all the
time that they are in the ground.'
nence, dig iust as soon as they are
mature, and store in a dry place.

Learning to Play Golf.
The best way to learn the game of
golf is to get out on the links and prac
tice it. Over a dozen kinds of clubs
are used, but lack of space makes it
impossible to describe them and their
special uses here. The driver is a
wooden club used for making long
strokes. The putter is made of iron,
with the exception of the handle, and
is used for making short strokes. The
lofting iron, or club, is for lifting the
ball when it gets into depressions and
-has to be driven out, or for lifting the
bill over mounds, fences or other

The wedding rake In this country

a it 'does abroad. In England at a
large wedding, the cake Is of colossal
proportions and Its adornment Is a
work of ait. At the recent wedding
of the daughter uf the Earl of Rose
bery. Lady Margaret Primrose, to tbe
Earl of Crewe, the wedding cake was
lx feet high and decorated with prim
roses, wild heather and the Rosebery
tnd the Crewo coat of arms. In New
York the cake is arranged with an Idea
of convenience and Is put np la Indi
vidual boxes and when there is a regu

normal size and with conventional
flower decorations. In the bride's
cake, which is always plain, is tbe
thimble, ring and sixpence to foretell
the fate of the lucky or unlucky reci

fruit cake In tbe center and the plain
outside. The cake la marked off Into

manufactured. The kind of material
used resembles blotting paper. Whole
suits are made of this paper stuff. In

cheapness ot such a garment, making
it possible for the poorest person to

Cartons Bird Habits.
It Is a well-known fact that If the
young of almost any kind of bird are
taken from the nest before they can
fly. the old ones will feed them most
attentively if the cage in which the
little birds are Inclosed is placed some
where where tbe parents can reach It:
and a popular but erroneous belief Is
current that they do this for a time.
and end by poisoning the vounr ones.
This, however, is a mistake, the fact
being that at a certain stage of a
young bird's existence, when it Is nat
urally able to begin catering for Itself,
the parent birds, also quite naturally,
cease to attend It, and then, if tbe
birdllngs are shot up In the cage and
their custodian has not thought of
placing some food at their disposal.

Ejaculations la Many Languages to Ward
Off Coming; Danger.
In many -a family, particularly in
New England, a sneeze is generally fol
lowed by a hearty "God bless us,"
though little thought is ever paid to
the meaning of the phrase or why it 13
used. A curious explanation of the
origin of the phrase is given. It seems
that several centuries ago an epidemic
like our prasent influenza became rife
all over Europe, the first symptom of
which was violent sneezing. ' The pope
at that time prescribed prayers against
the epidemic and recommended cer
tain short ejaculations, to be made
when anyone sneezed in such a way as
to ehow signs of having contracted the
malady. Hence all over Europe we
have these ejaculations, practically of
the same character. Italy: "DIo ri
becedica!" in Germany, "Gott segne
dich!" (also "Gesundheitl") In France,
'Dieu vous benlsse!" among the Span
Ish speaking neople of New Mexico,

'Agus llnire!" "and Mary," Is added.
and In violent . attacks, "agus - Eoin
Baiste " ind John Baptist-" In New
Mexico they say to children sneeslng:
"Die te haga crecer," "God make thee
grow!" An equivalent expression is
used in Gaelic as a thank phrase, and
I have heard people, say In Ireland to a
child sneezing. "God bless yon, child.

Alcoholism In Franco.
In a weighty paper just prepared for
the French Bulletin Mea:cal. Dr. Bru-
qpn, an eminent medical writer, de
clares that the greatest national peril
hanging over France just now is alco
holism, and more than all. alcoholism
among women. Singularly enough his
researches have demonstrated that the
women of picturesque Normrejly are
more completely In the grasp of tbe
drink fiend than the women of any oth
er province of France. Drink is sold
by the grocer, the coal dealfga-even by
the green grocer; and what is still
more fatal, nearly every shopkeeper
dispenses "wee drops" to customers
worth cultivating just to steady the
connection. The question assumes a
dark aspect in its relation to the ter
rible infant mortality in Normandy,
which Dr. Brunon attributes to the al
most universal prevalence of chronic
- m
aiconousia among women or tne peas
