Crneltr In Killing IIorb.
Wnen hog killing time comes three or
four men and boys and perhaps a yelp
ing dog will lay. siege to the doomed
animal and with much ado will catch
and throw the beast, which meantime
rends tho air with his squealing as
though crying lustily for mercy, and
when at last the knife has been driven
home and the arteries severed all at
once the quietness of death prevails
the hog arises, totters awhile, ghastly
blood pouring from the wound; the
animal gets weaker and . weaker and
tin ally tumbles over and gives his last
dying kick.. The man's wife and chll
dren and perhaps some of the children
of the neighborhood have been silent
but horrified witnesses of the direful
scene. Now, is not this a delightful
picture to present for the inspection of
women and children?
A merciful way to kill a hog is to
strike it In the head with a suitable Im
plement, producing stupor, theu in
stantly use the sticking knife. This
causes instant death. An animal suf
fers more from fear than it does from
ceath Itself. A neat, unobjectionable
method is to drop the open side of a
suitable lonp, narrow box down over
the animal and then turn box and ani
mal upside down, when the knife can
do its work and the box be righted
again, that the hog can bleed out prop
erly. Humane men will be apt to pur
sue one of these better methods. In
deed, many of them do now, but If
they will not they should be thoughtful
enough to have children absent from
hog killing that no evil be done by bad
example. Practical Farmer.
Testing Wheat Vnrlle.
The Ohio experiment station during
the past ten years has tested thirty-
four differently named varieties of
wheat. The Pouquite's Velvet Chaff
is used as a standard by which to test
the yield, and every third plot is sown
with that, and as the yield rises above
or falls below that the productiveness
and the value tire estimated. During
the ten years' test the Mealy has made
the best showing, having had an aver
age yield of four and an eighth bush
els per acre greater than the Velvet
Chaff. The Poole. Red Russian and
Harvest King are decided to be the
same variety, and they have ranged
from three and one-thirteenth to three
and three-quarter bushels better than
the Velvet Chaff, the Gypsy three and
three-quarter bushels better and Early
Bipe three and a half bushels better
than Velvet Chaff. Yet they class
the Toole next to the Mealy, perhaps
because it has been longer tested or
because It stands up better than the
Gypsy or Early Ripe.
A Hint o the Wine. .
How deep is the manure in the feed
lot? But you can't tell until it rains
and you have to carry some rocks and
place them throe or four feet apart
from the gate to the bam door. This
Is as it is on hundreds of farms, but
not as it ought to be. If the feed lot
is on a hillside, heavy rains may wash
thfs manure away and deposit it in
the ravine at the foot of the slope.
thus leaving the lot comparatively
clean. This saves the labor of hauling
it out and spreading it on the field.
There Is another saving connected
with this disposition of the manure.
The field crops will be much lighter to
haul and will require less house room
for storage, and the part that will
have to be sold for cash to pay state
and county taxes will bring loss mon
ey, and "money Is the root of all evil,"

It Is not many years since we first
saw the Palmetto asparagus roots ad

as the older varieties and are claimed
o have two advantages. They are
propably the earliest or first to send

and they are said to be not rust proof.
but less subject to rust than the others.
Those who Intend to set plants or sow
the seed next spring will do well to
try this variety. American Cultivator.

A little air slaked lime dusted over
the potatoes as they are put in bins,
barrels, boxes or in heaps on the cellar
lloor will prevent decay. The lime has
a purifying effeet, absorbing the mois
ture, and keeps them sweet, dry and
fresh. Five cents' worth of lime will
be sufficient for twenty bushels.
