Automobiles uro coming Into i:-.> on tbc farm as a means of ploasui* for tin farmer ami bis family. There Is d ?tlt lug more natural tlian a desire t>> util ize tin; splendid power plant contained in a car for other purposes than pro polling It over the roads. An Ingenious farmer has solved the problem in a manner apparently satisfactory to him self. The farmer devised an arrange tnent whereby the net of putting the ear in its shed places it in position and so associates the wheels with (he ma chinery of the dairy that the engine when started will do the heavy work of running the separator. The accompanying sketch shows this device so plainly that it is not neces sary to describe it other than to call attention to the two rollers, one of which has its shaft extended outside I ho bor. to carry a pulley, from which the belt runs to an overhead shaft. It is easily apparent that the revolution of the wheels of the car will cause a reverse motion of the rolls, which is transmitted by means of tbo pulley and belt to the shaft and thence to the ma chinery. In this way the wear on the TUIC MOTOll AS A l'OWEIt 1I.ANT. tires is rendered uniform. The grip on the rolls that these tires exercise is surprising. A peculiarity of this arrangement is that the car shows a tendency to skill from side to side. This, however, is easily overcome by means of props or bumpers, which are put iu place so us to limit the sidewise motion of the ear within the shed, the mere pressure of the hand serving to move the ear easi ly when the wheels are revolving on the rolls. In very warm weather or on long, heavy pulls it is sometimes necessary to connect the circulating system with the water supply in order to prevent beating of the cylinders. For sawing wood, cutting feed or any work of an intermittent nature It is necessary for some one to control the engine on account of there being no governor. As a matter of fact, otic farmer tins a small boy at the ' throttle most of the time, ns the sep arator Is sometimes thrown off with out warning. All Around the Farm. It Is claimed by those who have trained many horses that, taking the colt When training first begins, they Cttll lie trained to walk over four miles an hour. The walking gait is the m >st important one to the farm and road horse. The mistake with many in training young horses is that they are too soon put to trotting, which is a gait they more readily learn than last walking. If the land is to be plowed twice be fore planting in order to make it thor oughly line, U will be well to roll it be fore the second plowing in order to pack the surface somewhat ami make the earth turn hotter without clogging the mold board. The roller is also use ful in breaking clods and in packing the surface to prevent excessive evapo ration in dry wontlior. In order to get liens in prime con dition to produce fertile eggs you are required to follow as closely after na ture's plan as possible. Provide them with a liberal amount of green food, together with animal food at least twice each week, if you cannot give them a large, roomy yard, release them from confinement at least uii hour each day. The dny of the bog which 19 liulf solid fat Is limited. Consul Webster of Niagara Falls states that the Canu dinn hog raisers and pnekers have been forced, through lack of demund for fut hogs, to produce tbo leaner bacon type which can be sold to ad vantage on the Hrltlsh market and Is suitablo for the export trade. A heifer should be milked ns long ns possible during her first period of lac tutlon even if she does not give much milk. When allowed to dry up at six months she will go dry every time at the same period when a cow. Heifers are very susceptible to education In this respect. Provided the hen is cooped or tether ed, young chickens may tie allowed to run In the onion and asparagus beds. Undo Sam's Granary.
