TtfOtor tni'efully plans his hunting

It Is n common assumption, as a matter

Electric l'ower on the Central.
)ne of the most wonderful englneer;
operations ever contemplated is tho
iversion of a nortlon of tlu> Vow
Ycfrk Central Railroad from steam to
electric traction. Tlio plans have been
alijiost entirely completed, and in a
short tiinO service as far as Tarrytown
will be electric.
'^he difficulties of the problem were
enormous, both on account of the great
toVnage to be hauled and the different
classes of traffic. The main generating
station, recently contracted for, is even
somewhat ahead of the times, as the
generators, each of some 7000 horse
power, are to be driven by the new ahd
almost untried steam turbines. Leaving
the main station, the current will
1)0 carried by cables to the several substations,
where it will be transformed
from its high transmission voltage to ft
lower one, ami then, converted Into direct
current and fed to the third rail or
t.olley wire. Both the third rail nnd
overhead systems will be used, the former
en the main lines, where switches
and cross-overs arc comparatively few,
and the latter In the yards, wl\ere the
complex network of tracks would make
the third rail almost an impossibility
and a source of great danger. The
through trains will be hauled out as
rar as Tarry town liy huge plectric locomotives,
and then will be given over to
steam engines; while *the local traffic,
both on the main line and the Harlem
Division, will be handled by the "multiple
unit system" similar to that now
used on the elevated road, and to bo
used on the underground. Indeed, it
!s contemplated to run from the city
rapid trnusit system right out over fbo
Central tracks from all parts of the
city without change of cars.?Collier's

Most horse breeders prefer that
mures In foal should have regular
exercise in the form of light work, hut
jerking and straining should bp avoided
milder all circumstances. For best
?csuns it is n good plan to use three
horscK for work that would ho required
of two under ordinary circumstances.
This iH not done at an additional
expense of one-tliird, because
three horses will do more work thnn
two, if the speed alone considered.
Then it often happens that plows and
cultivators amy be set an inch or two

is worth a fio.'d deal, although

are scarce, the horse of no particular
breed or clas< is commanding a fair
price, and many farmers are led to regard
a horse of (Ids kind as a profitable
animal to produce. Such horses
should not he bred, because, even when
the greatest care and precaution possible
are taken in breading for definite
types, there will always l>e a largo
number of the no-called misfits, which
are the first class of horses to bo affected

A Michigan farmer wbo handles over
2000 bushels of potatoes each year,
washes every bushel, lie says:
'"For live years I have washed n"
potatoes and have never lost a bushel
by rot after I put them away In the
cellar. I pick up the potatoes as fas!
as they are dug. They are then hauled
to a suitable rack for washing, where
a mill hose is turned on them with to
lbs. pressure. In this way 100 bushels
are washed clean enough in 10 minutes
to bake or boil. I let them lie for a
few minutes only, then pick -them up
and put In one bushel crates, after
which 1 hey stand in the sun or wind
for from two to three hours. long
enough to tlry nicely. The potatoes
are then packed away in a cool, dry
cellar, where they rema'.n until wanted
for use or to sell.

The bumblebee is one of the most
valuable farm assistants known to the
agriculturist. lie is necessary in the
pollenizlng of blossoms in the orchards
and meadows. He destroys but little
fruit, and seldom attacks the cherry i
or apple until it is too ripe for market i
or family use. His mission on earth
is that of peace and prosperity. In
Germany his life Is protected by legislative
enactnients.-^IIere he is chased
About by the farmer boys and killed j
on sl^ht. His services as n farm and j
orchard assistant are not appreciated.
Red clover blossoms do not form seed
until the pollen is thoroughly mixed.
For this reason, it is argued in many
sections of the country, the first crop
nf clover is n failure as a seed producer
The bumblebee does not come from his
winter resting place in time to work i
on the clover blossoms, and hence the I
pollen is not handled as it should be i
to form seeds, In the early days of j
agriculture this was merely n theory, j
Now it Is published as n fact. and not j
denied by any one nt all familiar with i
the nature of plant life.
Some interesting experiments have J
been conducted nt agricultural colleges
to demonstrate the value of the bum- i
blehee in growing ved elover seed. >
Last year at the Iowa station patches
of clover heads v.-ere covered with j
mosquito netting and similar sized j
areas left uncovered. The cxperimen- j
tal plats were six feet square. Cov- |
erod patches for the tirst crop gave no ;
seed, while those uncovered returned >
10 per cent of sin ordinary crop. For j
the second crop the covered plants

covered numbered <>!'-! ll:at produced >
Plants near the nests of the humblebees
always produce the host crops of
seed. In a space of six square feet
over two thousand heads of red clover |
formed excellent seed. The humble- j
bees had built nests in the clusters of !
clover roots. Those who are inclined i
to kill every boo that comes about |
