ROM the Dairy
World, London, we
reprint the follow
ing report of the
market for Austral
ian butter during
the past year:
The past butter
season has wit
nessed the first
check to that ex
velopment which has characterized the
importation of Australian butter into
the United Kingdom since its com
mencement in 1887. For the previous
five seasons the import had gone on
with marvelous rapidity until it reach
ed the large total of 29,000.000 pounds.
The severe drouth, however, which
lately afflicted several of the Australian
colonies, has temporarily retarded this
development, and for the season lately
closed only 17,000,000 pounds were re
ceived. This shortage was foreseen in
Europe early last August and produced
two important results. The Danes, who
have been watching with great anxiety
the growth of the Colonial butter trade,
were advised from Australia of the po
sition of affairs, and believing that
they had the winter's trade very much
in their own hands, in October rushed
ip the wholesale price of Danish butter
in Copenhagen to 133s, which was high
er than it had been for years, while in
London it rose to 142s. The Copen
hagen committee overreached itself, for
the rise in values speedily brought in
larger imports from other sources, no
tably from the States and Canada,
which together in October and Novem
ber sent 3,340 tons against 62G for the
corresponding month of the previous
year, the shortage from Australasia for
those two months being only 396 tons.
This great influx of American and Ca
nadian butter reduced values rapidly,
and Danish fell 25s per cwt. in Copen
hagen in fourteen days, but not before
the rise had done great harm to the
genuine butter trade by giving an im
petus to the sale of pure margarine and
margarine mixtures. Thus, owing to
the action of the Copenhagen commit
tee, the deficiency of the Australasian
supply, instead of benefiting the Danes
by raising the value of their product
all through the season, did them irrep
arable harm. Colonial butter nn
Danish very close in values, the differ
ence for the whole of last season aver
aging only 5s 4d per cwt. The quality
of Colonial butter, on the whole, has
shown an improvement on previous
seasons, more especially in the choicest
llnlldinc a Poultry House.
It is very difficult to give a design of
a satisfactory poultry-house, as so
much depends on how much one de
sires to invest, says American Poultry
Keeper. Of course, the "best" may
cost too much, and there is a disposi
tion to economize. Then again, a win
ter house may not serve for the sum
mer. It is as difficult to suggest a plan
of a poultry-house as it is to attempt to
please all with a plan of a dwelling,
owing to individual preference being a
ractor. There should be plenty of room
on the floor, to enable the hens to work
and scratch in winter, and also because
the hens detest a dark poultrj'-house.
For 100 hens a house fifty feet long and
sixteen feet wide would not be too
large. It should be built on a founda
tion, which need not extend more than
six inches or a foot above the ground.
On this lay a cement floor to keep the
rats out. Make the house eight feet
high in front and seven feet in the rear.
of rough boards, placed perpendicular
ly. On these boards place tarred paper,
with strips on the paper, the roof to Lo
of tarred paper also. Have four win
dows, the larger the better, and divide
the house into four apartments, with
twenty-five hens in each. Make the j
partitions of board?, running to me
ceiling, and have all boards above four
feet nicvablL, so that wire netting may
be used in summer. Place two roost
at the rear, with dropping-boards under
the roost, and nests under the boards.
It is better to have no passageway,
allowing doors to open into each apart
ment, thus securing more room. Cover
the floor with cut straw, and scatter all
grain in the straw. A water-trough
may be of weed and kept in the sun
light A dust bath should be near the
ivindow. In summer, ventilate by leav
ing the windows open, covered with
wire netting. Such a house will cost
from $50 to $100, according to labor,
location and price of materials. There
should be a yard in front of each parti
tion, 12 by 100 feet, and one at the rear,
"hanging the hens from one to the
other, as necessity demands, which will
permit of growing something in the un
occupied yard, and will assist in keep
ing them clean by turning under the
top soil. A ventilator may be placed at
the peak over each partition, but it
should never be opened unless in sum
Tier. The object in suggesting board
artitions is to prevent the possibility
drafts on the fowls at night. The i
?uth or southeast is the proper dl
;ction for the house to face. A flat
3of is the cheapest and where tarred
iper is used, the boards need not be
100th. But for the expense we would
vise plastering also, as it better pro
mts against lice. If the tarred paper
.s placed on the outside, instead of on
the inside, it prevents the boards from
becoming' wet and keeps the house dry.
Cover the paper with coal-tar and sand
two or three times, and It will last for
years. It may also be whitewashed
whenever it is desirable to do so.
Sneezing and SwsUed Head.
Both these are symptoms of roup, hut
not roup in themselves, says a writer
in Poultry Monthly. Sneezing more
properly belongs to distemper, or a
cold in the head, and in itself is only
a slight ailment, and common among
young chickens when exposed to sud
den changes of the atmosphere. In
quite young chicks the trouble is best
treated by putting four drops of tinc
ture of aconite in a half pint of drink
ing water. Use the homeopathic acon
ite. For older chickens, tie a piece of
asafoetida in a piece of muslin and fast
en it in the drinking fountain or vessel.
Use a piece about the size of a hazle
nut. Swelled head very often comes
from a draft at night while the birds
are roosting, such as a crack in the
wall. It also accompanies roup when,
in treating the disease, the face and
head is not daily washed with warm
water and castile soap suds, so as to
remove the matter. When neglected,
the virus of the matter poisons the
face, causing lumps. Bathe the head
and face with strong castile soap suds.
After wiping dry bathe with a lotion
made of ode part spirits of turpentine
to six parts of glycerine, and well
rubbed upon the head and face. Also
take a tablespoonful of clean lard, half
a tablespoonful each of ginger, cayenne
pepper and mustard. Mix well to
gether and then add flour till the whole
has the consistency of dough. Roll
into slugs about the size of the top joint
of the little finger, and put one down
the bird's throat. Repeat the dose in
twelve or twenty-four hours, as the
case may require.
Shredding Corn Fodder.
Newspaper bulletin 35, Indiana ex
periment station: During the past few
years unusual interest has been taken
by farmers in the subject of shredding
fodder. Many have hesitated to shred,
thinking that the shredded corn would
not keep well in the mow or stack.
When shredding was first practiced,
mora or less fodder was shredded in a
somewhat damp condition. When
such corn was used it invariably heat-
ECLIPSE (2010), PRIZE WINNER AT
cd in the mow, became musty and
.gave unsatisfactory results. A knowl
edge of such unsatisfactory preserva
tion has restrained some people from
shredding their fodder, although had
the crop been properly handled there
is little doubt but what these same per
sons would have become indorsers of
the process. Fodder that is shredded
should not be run through the machine
until it is entirely dry and well cured.
It would be better overdry than not
dry enough. Last season at the Indi
ana experiment station we shredded all
of our corn fodder (stover) and with
the most satisfactory results. It kept
well in the mow. and was free from
mustiness. The cattle and sheep ate it
freely, and it was used well into the
spring with the stock. This fall we
will shred nearly all of our 1S96 crop.
Shredded fodder presents several im
portant points in its favor:
Firsts-It is more economical to feed
than the uncut corn. Second It is
eaten up cleaner by the stock than
most cut fodder is, there being less
waste, due to the absence of the hard,
sharp-edged, short butt pieces of stalks
usually found in cut fodder. Third
The refuse makes better .material for
bedding than does whole stalks or cut
pieces, being finer and softer. Fourth
It handles far better in the manure
pile than does the entire stalk. Fifth
It does not make the mouths of cattle
sore, while that of coarsely cut fodder
oftentimes docs. Sixth It packs more
economically in the mow than does un
cut fodder. The feeding value of
shredded and cut fodder is practically
the same. SLvedding is coming mare
and more into practice, and many
farmers are making use of the process.
Shredders and buskers combined are
I made, or the shredders may be bought
separately. Baled shredded corn hay
may now be found in the hay markets,
and it furnishes a valuable class of
coarse food for horses, cattle, and
sheep. A ton of shredded fodder con
tains over three-fourths of a ton of
digestible food for the animal bedy. In
these times of low prices, the farmers
of the country cannot afford to allow
their fodder corn crop to go to waste,
so long as it can be used instead of
other rough stuff. Shredded, it may be
handled and fed to the greatest advan
tage. C. S. Plumb, Director.
Flxln;? the Poultry House.
In the winter your poultry is com
pelled to be under shelter much of the
time, and you should sec to it that the
poultry house is put in proper condi
tion for them before severe weather
pets in, says an exchange. Put on the
whitewash wherever it will stick
walls, roof, nests and all; see that the
perches are in gcod condition, free from
sharp edges, nails or any other thing
that might injure the fowl. Have your
perches all on the same level to avoid
crowding at the top. Don't have them
too high, one and a half or two feet
is sufficient. Where perches are' too
high, fowls, especially the larger va
rieties are apt to injure themselves in
flying up or down. See that the nest
boxes are all right, easy of access and
clean, with good fresh straw in them
occasionally. It is a good idea to place
iest boxes in the darkest part of the
house, as it is a hen s nature to hide

Dr. If. K. Robinson of East Kent,
England, was recently requested to in
vestigate a sudden serious outbreak of
illness in a religions house containing
five sisters, a cook and a housemaid,
says Hoard's Dairyman. Although no
fatal results had accrued, the symp
toms were severe and convalesence pro
tracted. Five out of the seven inmates
were attacked within a short period of
each other, thus indicating some com
mon origin as the source of the mis
chief. Suspicion was attached to the
milk supplied to the household, which
had been taken alone, blended with
tea, and in the form of blanc mange.
To the morning and afternoon supply
the cook had added a preservative
which was found to contain, as its
basis, boracic acid. A sample as de
livered by the dairyman was analyzed
and found also to contain a similar
substance. Thus, for the same purpose,
a preservative had been added both be
fore and after its arrival at the house,
by which treatment an overdose had
been administered, permission was
obtained to give the portion of uncon
sumed blanc mange to nine fowls. Five
devoured the food with avidity, and
thus secured a larger portion than the
remaining four, and, although vigorous
pullets, they all died. The remaining'
four suffered badly, but ultimately re
covered. Dr. Robinson quotes the opin
ions of Fere, Sir Andrew Clark, Sir
Henry Thompson and Dr. Lander
Brunton as to the poisonous character
of the admixture and urges that the
presence of the drug should be recog
nized as an injurious adulteration. If
such results, he says, can be produced
in the case of adults it is not unrea
sonable to presume that infants can
not take with impunity long continued
doses in their staple food.
"Sotun Dont's" for Honey Ilnyer.
Don't buy honey that has stood in
the open air, especially in a damp cli

cappings of comb honey are very por

and damp surroundings; consequently
do not use honey that is kept near to
bacco, salt or smoked fish or meats,
Don't buy honey in which any comb
is immersed, for pure extracted honey
does not need comb in it to deceive the
eye, for it appeals to the palate as well
as the eye.
Don't use strained honey, as it is
squeezed from the comb in which dead
bees, larvae, pupae, the bee-moth's
larvae, and even worse, are present.
Don't think that honey is expensive,
as one quart of honey is equal to five or

The KMiulIy Horse.
A horse that is difficult to find, and
one that is in constant demand, is one
that can be guaranteed to be safe foi
family use, says a writer in "Horn
World." At any place where horse
sales are held, one cannot but be im
pressed by the large number of search
ers after horses suitable for family use.
For this purpose a horse must not onlj
be sound and good looking, but he must
be absolutely safe in the strictest sense
of the word. He must be afraid oi
nothing, and must be possessed ol
sense enough to behave under circum
stances which to the average horst
would mean. a runaway. He must be
safe for a woman to drive, and in manj
cases the woman will know little aboui
driving and absolutely nothing about
what should be done in case of an acci
dent. In view of the dependency that
must necessarily be placed on the fam
ily horse, it is ncj to be wondered al
that horse3 suitable for that purpose

mand a high price whenever they arc
offered. The only wonder is that some
enterprising man does not make a spe

A Three-Year-Old Casjale Foaad est Tfcssr
Way to a Minister's.
The youngest eloping couple on rec
ord spent several hours In Allegheny
Central police station yesterday after
noon. They were Charles M. Douglas,
aged 3 years, and Margaret Carpenter,
aged 3 years and 6 months. Both tots
are flaxen-haired and blue-eyed. They
appeared much in love with each other,
and were somewhat indignant because
they were prevented from going to a
minister to be wed. Miss Carpenter
had her arm linked in that of her boy
lover, and they were hurrying along
North avenue, headed for a minister's
bouse, when a lady met them and
asked them where they were going.
"Marderet and me's doin' to det mar
ried," spoke up Charles, while Mar
garet hung her head and blushed. The
lady laughed and asked Margaret if it
was true. The would-be bride nodded
her head and tried to pull Charles past
the inquisitor. The lady turned them
over to a policeman, who learned their
names, but they did not know on what
street they lived, so he sent them to
central station, where they were placed
in charge of the matron, Mrs. Mary J.
Kellogg. It was amusing to watch the
tiny couple. Charles is a gallant and
most affectionate lover. His arm
would steal around Margaret's waist,
and be wasn't a bit pleased when she
made him remove it At the station he
again asserted his intention of marry
ing Margaret He admitted that he
was rather young, but said that did not
matter. When asked what he wanted
for a wedding outfit he said: "A
wagon with 15 wheels to haul his wife
and her doll that can cry and laugh,
and "a parasol to keep the warm off."
Charles was asked by Mrs. Kellogg if
he really and truly loved Margaret,
and he replied, "Yes," promptly. When
a like question was put to Margaret
she blushed and said "No."
"Say 'Yes,' Margaret," Charles said
coaxingly, as he slipped his arm again
around her waist, and she obeyed him.
"Do you ever kiss Margaret.
Charles?" Mrs. Kellogg asked.
"No, he don't!" Margaret put in. "I
won't let him." "
"I do when it gets dark," Charles ex
plained. "Will you kiss her now if I give you
a cent?" was asked.
"Yes," Charles replied, and, putting
his arms around her, he kissed her as

In an article on "Why the Confeder
acy Failed," contributed to the Novem
ber Century, by the son of a Confeder
ate officer, the first cause is laid to the
excessive issue of paper money. He
says: "The government acted oa the
theory that all it had to do to raise
money was to print it They did not
seem to realize that, being the largest
purchaser in the market, it was nec
essary for the government to keep
down prices as much as possible; that
every issue of bills must inevitably
raise prices and render a new issue
necessary; that every rise in prices
must be followed by a new issue, nntil
the buble must collapse of its own ex
pansion and redundancy."

the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis

ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millionsof families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
