A fow of his political friends were thero nnd thoso men wero loud nnd nlncere In their expressions. Although tho court office provonlod tho cheer ing In tho courtroom, tholr Jurlsdlc tlon did not oxtet d to tho corridors of tho city hall nnd the first group of men who loft tho courtroom sent up n mighty shout which was takon up and ropoated by tho crowds gathered Just outsldo tho "dead lino." drawn by tho watchmen, beyond which only posses sors of tickets woro allowed to pass. As soon ni Senator Quay could get nwny from those nnxlnus to shako his hand nnd congrntulnto him he made bis way, accompanied by his oounsel, to tho olovntor to descend to tho street from tho sixth floor of tho municipal building.

Itow flarrtaifit rarmars Optrata ThU Department of the farm A raw lllnli to the Car el Lit Bloefc soil Foatlry, Tha Alio. In the course of a talk on tho value of tho illo at a Now York farmers' Institute, Mr. A. L. Lltchard said that tho greatest Improvement that has taken placo on tho farm In years was tho silo. Ono benefit of tho silo Is that tho corn can bo gathered and put Into It early while tho land can be used for something else. Another Is, that corn that Is put In tho silo grows hotter as It grows oldor, and If toft In tho field would deoreaso In value, and again tho corn In tho silo Is al ways ready for use. A farmer can carry from threo to five moro head of cattlo with Its old than otherwise. A farmer can koep his family In bettor circumstances, and n silo, If run on a systematic plan, will go n long way toward paying off farm obligations. A silo Is a great help when a farmer Is In a tight placo. Mr. Lltchard recited an accident whloh occurred on his farm about flvo years ago. It was whon tho grass-hoppers mado their famous raid through that section. He had some flno pieces of timothy nnd clover. Tho grata -hopper cleaned this oft entirely with tho exception of two tons, The next year tho same thing took placo, TVey were not atl of an age, there were 35 early ones, batched the last of April, for these we received 10 cants per pound, for tho ISO lator ones wa received but rents per pound, so ono must uio every exertion to havo early duoks to get tho cream. They were fed altogether on corn meal. It was baked during the first month, mixed with milk, soda nnd salt and baked In tho oven until dono. . After this It wns mixed with milk, soda and salt and fed raw. We could see no difference In the results from cooked or uncooked feed. Tho moal cost CO, CO or 08 cents per hundrod, and abio lately tho only feed that wo bought. We furnish them pounded charcoal, pounded dishes, nnd sand nnd gravol, and water all tho time; no swimming water. We always mixed a quart of sharp sand Into a candy pall of feed every morning for foar thoy wouldn't eat enough grit to prevent Indigestion. They run on grass, but nro not vory greedy grass enters.

Tho uoxt year tho grass-hoppers woro on hand, nnd Mr. Lltohard had a largo corn crop, but In tho moanttmo he had built n flno alto. His hay, clover, Co., went tho samo as tho year boforo, but ho hod a flno lot of corn and n plnee to put It, so ho flllod tho silo and had lots to spare. Ho fed tho remaining pnrt and did not touch tho silo until Fcbrunry 11. Its contents moro thnn carried his stoek through to grass time During tho following summer tho grass and feed dried up, so ha put his cattlo back on to tho silo, nnd got moro milk from ono cow than his neighbors got from three. Mr. Lltch ard said ho novor Invosted his money to n bettor advantage than ho did whea ho built his silo. Whon asked It tho slto should bo cquaro or clroul&r In form, Mr. Lltchard replied: "If I were to build In the barn I should build a squoro ono; but It out of doors, nnd had a good covering, I should cortalnly build a silo circular In form." I'oultry lltnti. From Farmers' lleflew: The feed ing experiment with Pekln dusks given In Farmers' Ilovlow of March 1 will doubtless sound "fishy" to persons who have never seen healthy dusks fail all they would eat from the first; or else they will road It and say, "OH. well, they Lad tho largest claw of dueks, and had all kinds of feed and conveniences, also got n top price for the dueks. I couldn't do that." My friends, you oould, It you would try. Two years ago we purchased 12 dttekfl and 3 drakes, bad only the con veniences that aro found every where, but we made a warm duek house out of old rails and clover rowan; used hens for Incubators and sold 17C young ducks; Inereased our flock to 30, be sides selling and using dozens of duek eggs. They wero white dueks mixed with the Pekln, and when they wore hatched one had a whlto paten back of Its wings, after It feathered It was a blaek leather. On neoount of the ease In Identifying it wo selected It for the ono to weigh each week. It gained 8 ounce overy seven days until it weighed 7 pounds, after that Its gain was not so rapid. When It was eight weeks old It weighed &tt pounds. Now It was not f.Hected because It was the largest of the floek, for It was not, neither was It the smallest, probably among the 110 there were more that were smaller than that wire larger, according as there were a predomi nance of dueks. but he was a good av ersge of the flock. Compared with the North Carolina Station results we did as well, If not a little better, and any ono could do as wu, dlnnry moat; that whon properly mado and cured It nlds dlgeetlon, that It Is ono of tho most profitable of nutri ents, nnd thnt wo should teach people to oat It. Hut all convincing proof of facts .and brilliant arguments havo failed to constltuto thu Americans a chceso eating pcoplo. A blto or two Is all they will venture, notwithstanding that thoy havo mado cheese slnco tho Colonial days. Tho ndngo that "ovory sickness has Its reason" finds applica tion In this Instance. "It Is n notori ous faot thnt tho standard American chceso, called Cheddar, Is tho most In digestible of all cheaso that Is made. It Is like nothing on earth but Itself. Nn other country known makes as poor and Indlgestlblo nn nrttelo as tho Amorlcan cheeso fnctory. To bo euro, somo of them put erwim enough In to make It pnlatablo, but thero Is a do elded absence of what may bo called European rlpouoss. It seems to bo made simply to sail by weight there fore, tho sooner It can be goltou Into the market the better. The faets are thus In ovldonco that tho only way to sueeoas Is through tho stomaeh of tho nverago consumer. Give him a palat able article that he is able to digest and the cheeso Industry will havo n solid foundation. M. Behembrl, Cow Peas as Hay. Every good thing has ita reverse side, and even the eow pea, whleh Is coming Into great prominence as n crop for green manuring, Is thus attacked, by a writer, as being unfit for hay: It Is as a hay crop that cow peas are nearest a fail ure. Owing to their tangled, sprawling vines, It Is almost Impossible to cut, pitch or euro them as bay. Often they will rot next to the ground while the vines are still growing, and If cut, they are very bard to cure, the leaves on top drying and crumbling off while still green and wet underneath, next the ground. If stored damp In barn or stack they will heat and rot on masse, or may, by fermentation and beat, turn their large per cent of ni trogen Into a form of niter, dangerous to horses and cattle. It caught by rains after cutting they are very liable to spoil, and- owing to their tangled condition, are hard to dry out. Records Too Limited. The great majority of breeders In the poultry fraternity today do not keep n strict reeord of the breeding pen. Nearly all keep e reeord of the cbleks as they are taken from the neat, but with many, very many, the reeord ends there until another hatching season. Such record keeping, while It Is good as far as it goes, is by iio means com plete Fx Ton-dollar gold piece, awarded to H. C. Holt for profloloncy in feeds and feeding.

To mako It moro complete pour about a quart of salt wator Into tho tub and hold In such position that by a rotary motion the water comes In con tact with tho cntlro Inside surfneo of tho tub. You will find your lining lu perfect position nnd thnt It has boon dono with dispatch. Dairy Reporter. Alfalfa. In tho localities where It succeeds, whleh are mainly In the n-d regions of tho West, alfalfa Is much more productive than clover. II has alio tho advnntago that onco tho ground is seeded with It the plant will live for years. Tho chief drawback Is that It takes longer to get a start, the plant not making much growth until Into the first season. It Is very Impatient of wet, and cannot be grown where the ground during spring or late in winter Is flooded. After the first year three crops of Lay may be out In a year, and as the plant has the power of disintegrating air In the soil by the nodulea grown on Its roots, the soil Increases In nitrogenous fer tility. Hut of courso mineral fertilizers laust be supplied when they are need ed, as no disintegration of the air can furnish any of these. Ex. Test Each Cow. What wo dairymen should aim at Is to secure the best cows we can, and try testing each cow's milk by churning separately, and ascertain for suro whether they pay for their keeping and glvo us a little profit. We can bo satisfied with a small profit, but cannot afford to keep cows at a loss, for the benevolent pur pose of supplying dairy products to consumers at a low cost.
