HOW TO DESTROY LICE.
tlcrolc Measure* Are Required to Ac
The management of fowls in Stim?
mer, when the weather is excessively
warn;, demands more care than is
usually given. Liee will breed and
multiply so rapidly as to completely
ruin the Hock almost before the owner
is aware of the fact. Farmers who
do not give any attention to fowls in
summer, permitting them <o roost in
side or outside of the poultry house,
sometimes lind their flocks in a con?
dition in which many are sick or
droopy without any apparent cause,
i i ihoy pronounce the disease chol- j
. proceeding to give remedies there-1
for when the cause is really lice. Not
only will the poultry bops* be swarm- |
ig vriih lice, but also the fences, wood
les, n oes or wherever the hens may
ost, and it is useless to attempt to
-t rid of lice on the hens as long as
te vermin have possession of every
. ation where the hens roost at. night.
.Not only during the day, but through
. a entire night the hens are annoyed
. the vermin, until tlu'3' become ex?
isted and begin to droop, finally
commencing to die off. The use of
remedies should be with the view of j
moving the difficulty at all cost.
First the poultry houso should' be
cleaned, and the fowls made to roost
therein, and not outside. Then the in?
terior and exterior should be thorough- j
? drenched with kerosene emulsion,
adding a gill of crude carbolic acid to !
every quart of the emulsion before add
i g the water. The point is to do the
work so as to save labor afterward.
To destroy some of the lice, and allow
them to multiply, is to waste time
jand labor, r.csides, there are eggs of
lice hatching every hour, and it is es?
sential to lull the young ones as fast
;;s they appear. To make the work
sure, the house should be thoroughly
drenched every day for a wetjk arid
once a week thereafter. Every portion
of the interior must be saturated?
nests, roosts, walls and floors. During
\ ery warm days lice will be in swarms
in three or four days in a house that
before showed no indication of their
presence.?Farm and Fireside.
FEEDING THE CHICKS.
Bcvice to Protect Their Ration? from
the Older Illvds.
The cut below shows a simple con?
trivance to cover a feed dish for young
chickens. Simply attach a handle to
an old box or basket and make en?
trance holes of a diameter sufficient to

FEEDER FOR YOUNG CHICKS,
permit the young chickens to enter.
First remove the bottom of the box
or basket. The object of this feed
cover is to protect the food of young
chickens from the older ones. It costs
but ;i trifie and will be found very use
ful, espec ially when feedingtheyoung
on food purposely prepared for thein.

set the feeder over it.?Farm and
IMPROVING THE FLOCK.
VVhy 5 .>r.ic Attempts Jn This Direc?
tion !ifs.::i Disastrously:
Quite often a farmer basing a flock of
r >mm?n stock that is well acclimated
a..d free from disease, but not very
Stable, disposes of them and sc
s pure-bred fowls, which be gives
j betterie?re. Having been improved
Sd made more profitable, partly byre
c iving esci '.lent food and care, better
a i .lie farmer is accustomed to
give, the improved fowls do
not ti:;ivc. Possibly they are from
hi h scoring 'fancy stock that has been
med by being over-shown and in
' red. Under his management they
may be no more profitable thanbiscom
mon stock, while they are* more sensi
livc to exposure and susceptible to dis
. sc. lie has about us much use for
them as a man without a hot-house to
j:ut them in has for hot-house plants.
. his man may become prejudiced
against pure-bred fowls. Had he se?
cured suitable farm-reared pure-bred
i irds from stock t hat had not been bred
for exhibition poi::ts for several years,
and at the same time had taken more
pains to keep the hen house clean,
free from liee, and to provide better
food and enough of it, he would doubt
BS have secured a greater profit and
have been gratified with the results.
Proper food, says Samuel Cushman, has
much to do with improving a breed, and
improved characteristics cannot be re?
tained unless sustained by it. Com?
mon scrubs endure privation and ex?
posure best, and it is not, therefore, al?
ways wise to discard them. It may be
difficult to secure really good birds for
useful purposes.?Western Plowman.
Shipping In Warm Weather.
To put a lot of fowls into a box, or
even into a well-made coop, on a warm
day, and send1 them ton distant market,
is to incur a risk of loss. There is noth
j :;g saved by utilizing every square inch
of the space, for when the coop is
crowded the fowls must remain where
they happen to be in the coop when the
car is in motion, hence they can get no
water, nor do they know that water is
at the other end of the coop. A largo
number of the live fowls that reach the
market lose weight on the journey,
xvhile with them are quite a number of
dead ones.?Farm and Fireside.

WHEN HOGS ARE RIPE.
How Jerry Raak Obtained Some Val?
Gov. Rusk happened to drive over the
state line once in Minnesota, looking
at the farms. Ue was particularly
struck with one farm, on which he
found everything in first-class order,
and, riding up to the house, inquired
the name of the owner, when a tall tier
man came out and gave his name as
"What do you regard as the greatest
wealth-producing agency in agricul?
ture?" the governor asked him.
"The hog," was the sententious re?
"Upon what do you base this state?
"He lifts more mortgages than any?
The conversation which ensued de?
veloped the fact that Louis had once
been what is called nn all-wheat fanner,
and kept constantly sinking into debt.
Ho decided that something had to be
done quickly or there would be very
little left for Louis, so he decided to
try the hog. The first year he made a
little money, the second year he made
more, and then he became thoroughly
interested. The result was that lit: be?
came recognized as a great authority
on hogs. His neighbors took up his
example, and mortgages began to be
I'ftcd, until ('mal)y there was not one
on record against that community.
"How long would you keep a hog?"
asked Gov. Rusk.
"I would not keep him?I would kill
"When he is ripe."
"When is he ripe?"
"When he is fat."
"Wouldn't it pay to keep the heg for
two or three years?"
T tried that once," said Louis. "I
took a heg in the fall and weighed him,
and I took my corn nnd weighed it.
When spring came the corn was all
gene and the hog weighed about what
he did in the fall. That made me say
next year that I Svould kill my hogs in
the fall and save nry corn."
"How much does it cost to keep a
hog through the winter?"
"How many hogs winter in Minne?
"One million. I have just looked at
the auditor's report."
"Do you mean to 6ay that we lose
$3,000,000 a vear in wintering our
"Yes; that's what you do. If you kill
them all in the fall will you have left
in your cribs $3,000,000 worth of corn to
GOOD PIG TROUGHS.
One Which, It Is Claimed, Comes Very
There are a great variety of devices
for pig troughs. It is difficult to so con?
struct one as to prevent his pig-ship
from getting his feet into it and root?
ing out a lot of his food onto the ground.
The follow ing engraving represents one
which, if properly constructed, comes
very near perfection. A common flar
ing trough is made, the end of which
has been removed, as shown in the en?
graving. The width o? bottom at A B,
Fig. 1, is 12 inches, with sides six inches
wide, which makes the trough nearly
four inches deep. A strip five inches
wide, C, is set up lengthwise centrally
and toe-nailed to the bottom. A hop?
per is constructed with a four-inch
opening at E, flaring to ten inches at
P. To hold all the parts securely in
place, boards are cut to fit between th;;
sides of the hopper, and with suitable
slot to embrace the dividing board C.
The shape of this board is shown in
sPLUNDin pic; trough.
Fig. 2. These may be inserted every
two or three feet. Slots are securely
mstencd as shown at S S S, and may be
about .eight inches apart. By this
means the pigs are precluded from get?
ting into the. trough. They can only
poke their noses into it, and this is all
that is needed.
This trough giver, feeding space on
both sides. The slops are easily dis?
tributed through the hopper. The con?
struction may be cheapened by using
only one board for each side of hopper
instead of two, as shown.?G. Waters,
in St. Louis Journal of Agriculture.
Sheep Iuu>rt>-ve the .Soil.
The sheep is unli2<c the hog in its
choice of food. It will not take up feed
out of filth or live on animal flesh. It
will eat weeds of alnfest any kind, and
will peel an apple tree if given an op
port untity. The excuse for not keep?
ing a few sheep that it costs so much for
fencing, is, to say the least, a flimsy
one. Barb win; or woven fence can be
had for a very reasonable amount. Four
wires will, restrain sheep if the fence
be put up in the proper manner, al?
though five wires are better, and this
number is all that is required to make
a good fence. Sheep bite somewhat
closer than cattle, but they improve the
Can?e? of Swine Diseases.
As the hog is the most difficult of all
farm stock to give medicine to, pre
ventioni will be found to be the best
remedy dn most eases. Almost all dis?
eases of swine may be traced to neg?
lect, insufficient and unwholesome food,
poor shelter, filthy, nauseous pens, ly?
ing in dung heaps, inhaling large quan?
tities of deleterious gases-, lying in cold,
wet beds and exposure to the inclem?
encies of the weather, permitting too
many to sleep together andlbree'ding to
animals that have been diseased, or in
and-in breeddng, the feeding of smutty
corn, not providing clean, pure water
?tih'ese are undiobuted'y the principal
causes of disease in swine.

The accompanying illustration shows
n box for a farm wagon excellently
adapted to the requirements of those
who practice selling their farm prod?
ucts from house to house in village or
city. There are four large compart?

whose cover forms the seat of the driv?

rear. Different sorts of bulky articles
can be carried in these, while in hot
weather one compartment can be fitted
to contain ice, for the well being of tho

products of the farm that are benefited
by going to market iced in the hottest

tables, strawberries, cream, ete. The

Many farmers have a strong prejudice j
against "peddling" their produce, as
they call the house-to-house sale of it. |
This is an unfortunate prejudice, for j
selling directly to the consumer is one j
of the most profitable methods of dis- j
posing of farm crops. Nor need it be at
all disagreeable, if rightly managed.
Have nothing but the best upon your
cart; have regular routes and regular
customers, and they will watch for |
your coming and make your trading
agreeable. Selling at first hand means
a steady cash income, and prices much j
higher than would be received from j
dealers. Then, too, it often means the j
sale of produce when the dealers are j
overstocked, and not willing to pur?
chase at any price.
A valuable point to be borne in mind
by these who thus sell their farm wares
is not only to have choice articles for
sale, but to carry them to the customers
in attractive shape. Let the wagon look
neat, being well painted and having the
name of the farm painted in bright let?
ters upon the sides. Then let the driver
be neatly dressed, pleasant and gentle?
man^' in his address, and the work will
prosper. These lit t le matters are of far
more importance in the successful sell- |
ing of farm products than many would i
believe. Attractive appearance from j
beginning to end sells goods. Don't try j
to build up such a trade by using an old
ramshackle wagon, with the articles for
sale dumped indiscriminately on the .
bottom; such a plan doesn't attract pur- .
chasers.?N. V. Tribune.

As a result of recent investigations it
has been shown that the foundation of
the families of about a dozen of the 400
barons of the British house of lords
dates back to 1400, the earliest being
12G4. The oldest family in the British
isles is the Mars family of Scotland,
