X31W WAY WITH A SiLO.-We had al
ways raised more or less Indian corn, us
ing the stalks for wintering our limited
number'of cattle. After mcreasing our
herd we planted fodder corn to help out
our stock of corn stalks. However, the
hard labor attending the cutting, binding,
shookng and curing the fodder made us
willing investigators of the new and highly
recommended system of ensilage eeding.
From all who had constructed silos and
tested enailage we heard uniformly favor
able reports. We could not learn of a fai
lure, hence we determined to test ensilage
for ourselves, only hesitating on account
of the probable labor and expense attend
ing the erection and weighting of a stone
Learning that wooden silos found favor
with some farmers who pronounced them
equally as good, so long as they lasted, as
the more costly stone affairs, we determin
ed .upon constructing our silo of wood.Our
barn is a two story building, measuring 40
x80 feet. It contains several laree bays,
the dinensions of which are 20x24 feet.
We sealed up one of these blys with .1*
inch matched epruce boards covered with
tarred paper. We cemented the bottom
of the silo, also the walls udder the sills of
the barn. We c)ated the inside of the silo
with coal oil to prevent the effects of mois
ture upon the boards.
We stored about 125 tons of corntodder
in the silo, treading it down by men %p
stead of horses, b y reason of the small size
of the silo. We were about three weeks
Storing the whole of our fodder on account
of lack of help. For covering the silo we
used hemlock boards and tarred paper, no
other weighting being applied until some
three or four weeks later, when we stored
a quamity of dry cornstalks upoij the top
of the silo. Upon opening the silo we
found the fodder in a perfect state of pre
servation, the ensilage showing no mold
except a little on the top just under the
cover. In preparig the fodder we em
ployed a two horse power engine to run
our cuttar,the latter being provided with a
carrier for delivering the fodder in the silo.
MANY farmers, and others whose busi
ness requires the use of horses, are very
careless about the important matter of
lameness. Very often a valuable animal
becomes slightly lame from cause which
could be easily removed if attended to at
once; but it is allowed, through neglect, to
go on until the suffering brute is nearly if
not wholly ruined. Then the matter is
investigated and a veterinarian is called,
just in time to incur an expense from
which there can be no return, and too late
to remedy the evil. Such a course is no
only silly but it smacks strongly on the in
human. A man who gives his horses no
care whatever deserves to lose them.
THE fattening of horses for market has
Prown to be quite a business in some pl,
ces in the United Stateg, and notably so in
a few countleb of Western V'enusylvanin.
Horses are prepared for sale with is much
care as the finest beeves, the horse grower
making it a point to have his produce in
the best possible condition for the buyer.
This has proved to be an excellent busi.
nes, and the "fectiig off" has no little to
do with its success. See that your horses
have first class form and condition, as
well as good bloo 1, and when the sale re.
turns are received you will find yourself
well repaid for your ipr,is.
.A OOiniRPONDENT claims that the beat
time to prune fruit trees is just before the
sap begins to flow--from February to
April, according to the latitude. The
wounds will then heal over rapidly without
leaving dead wood or scais. The next
best time is from the miiddle to the last of
June, when the sap fl'ws afresh and the
trees commence a second growth, but hea
vy pruning should never be~ practiced in
June. Much p)runing may be saved by
pinching anid rubbiag <11' superfluous
sprouts during the growiing Beason.

the nuts appear shiny, then throw them
into the sieve and agitate, to separate
