She attendance at the Exposition build ing last night differed in no material manner from that of the preceding night. It was large , enthusiastic and devotional. Among those present were the following gentlemen from abroad : Hov. Walter Williams , Dr. 0. L. Paine and Mr. Thos. Hall , of Lincoln. The lir.st uxvrciscs of the evening consisted in singing selec tions from the hymnal , in which the aud ience heartily took part , llov , Mr. Sin clair , of Columbus , offered the opening prayer. "Half Has Not Ucon Told" was then feelingly sung by the audience. This Was followed by the announcements usu ally mivJe. after which collection was taken up. Requests for prayer wore then announced , one of which was that of a wife in this city foi tidings of her husband , who is somewhere out west and from whom no tidings have been received in the last four yours. Prayer for those for whom rcquc.st was made then took place , and was led by the Hov. Mr. Pliolps , presiding elder of the Methodist church hi this district. The Kuv. Mr. Hitler then spoke , and referred to the remark of a gentleman who had attended the afternoon exercises , who stated that tlio revival services which were now being held had never been cqalled at any time in Omaha. It was an evidence of a Chvistmn awakening among the people , which was not only gratify- intr , but also cncoutnging to the people. At the close of Mr. .Hitler's remark's , the doxologv was sung and the audience dis missed. COOIIB In tlio Ring. The success which attended the late light between Smith , the colored pugilist of this city , mid "Pomp" Hroiuly , tlio Ktlnopian bruiser trom the Pacific coast , has encouraged the Caucasian backers of the former to look toward a , fistic en counter between the latter and another colored man , who has recently come to this city from abroad. Ho is popularly known as "Coon llarvoy. " He is well built and is said to possess extraordinary hkill with his lists and powers of endur ance. His presence became known shortly after uis arrival hero , and , hinco that time , ho has been distinguishing in an amateur manner in the manly art of self-defense. lie was immediately inter viewed by a number of reporters as well as the sporting fra ternity. Ho has been induced to meet Hroady. To-day a number of ad mirers of both the "unknown" and Mr. Hroady , will endeavor to obtain a view of the pmo-figlitor. Where the meeting re ferred to is to ho held , cannot now bo mentioned. Friends of both parties will meet to-day and agree upon terms. The place where the light will take place will then bo determined upon also. Looking Tor Itovonijc. Frank Shannon was some time ago banished frcm this city because of his frequent arrest and unlawful conduct. Shortly after hta departure ho wrote a series of threatening letters to DulY Grcon , now Union Pacific police oilicer at the union depot. Yesterday , Shannon stepped oil'a train at this point and was immediately arrested by tnu officer men tioned. Ho was asked what he proposed to do with the letters bo is reported to have written touching matters of private importance. Shannon's hand immedi ately "rasped his revolver , as did also the olliccr's. The latter was earlier than Shan non and succeeded in taking the outlaw into court where he will remain for a few days. Days of Penitence. Yesterday was Ash Wednesday , a day of particular solemnity in both the Episcopal and Catholic churches. In both of these , services were held both in the morning and evening , and attended "by largo numbers of people.

AVaynlok , of Cluiriton , Iowa , writes : Tlio care of horses is a theme of vast importance. It is emphatically worthy tlio careful consideration of every one interested In the welfare of the horse. Care will tell , nml that to n reasonable degree. Then what about the methods Unit have been put forth from tnno to time , are they adapted to the circum stances of the massed ? Methods almost without limit , some without rcrfson , and many with good , practical information have boon given to the world concerning - corning the care iiml management of horses. Many of those methods and in structions nro of good sound reasoning , and whenever tried , have proved practi cal : uul beneficial. Hut at the snmo time they were available onlv to a section of individuals , namely : Those who have plenty of money and abundant time for experimental purposes. Now , the average farmer ha1 ? neither n surplus supply of money nor time to test nml reap tlio good resulting trom such methods , but mu.st necessarily nave meth ods at least , practically adapted to his cir cumstances , or else he has no business with them at all. The farmer cannot , especially during the lirsl three or four mouths of the larming season , allow his learn a rosiHle of two or more hours after giving them water before feeding , pre paratory to the afternoon's work. Hut then the instructions say , two hours or more rest after feeding before work. This consumes two much valuable time , which thu average farmer cannot afford to lose. Hut he can the first thing of a morning feed his team a bountiful sup ply of hay a bucket full of water to the horse is bust uefore giving hay. Allow about one hour for eating nay , then feed corn or oats , after which the team is well prepared for the half day's work. A liorsu if food is given first , or botli hay and grain at the same time , will cat the grain , and consequently little or no hay during the allotted time. Special care should be given to the amount of water required for horses un der tlio dill'erent circumstances for in jurious results often accrue from an oversupply supply of water , than is generally sup posed ; while thu real cause of suelt results is frequently attributed to something else , and yet the unsuspected custom contin. uos , adding all the while to the number of new victims. Hay , before grain of any kind , morning , noon , and night , anil a reasonable resting spelt after the noon's feeding , will give , if adhered to any considerable length of time , satis factorily results. Of course , a liberal and vigorous use ot the curry comb and brush n is promotivo of much good , and should not by any means bo neglected. Sonic Rules for .Milk Producers. The Michigan dairymen's association hold a meeting in lialaimix.oo about the middle of February. Among other mat ters they adopted the following rules for the use of those who ship milk to cheese factories or butter dairies : First Cows must have an abundance ot good , wholesome food , pure and not too cold water , to which they can have access at all times. Second Cows must not be overheated or unduly cxeitcd or worried at any time. Third The udder and teats .should be thoroughly cleaned before milking , by washing it need be , and the teats should not bo wet during tlio process of milk ing. Fourth Kindness nnd gentleness should bo used at all times. Cows should not bo excited by loud talk or other noises. Fifth Cows should be milked by the same milker and as quickly as possible , and good pure water and salt placed in easy access. Sixth During cold weather cows should be comfortably housed , ilicirstulls well cleaned and littered , ami an abund ance of good and not too cold water ac- ce siblo. Seventh Milk , if kept ever night , should bo placed in a lank surrounded by cold water or ice. Eighth- the milk is for butter or cream for the creamery or market , cool the creamer to about -10 or ' 15 degrees be fore turning the milk into it. Put the milk in tlio creamer as soon as drawn. It should remain from 12 to 24 hours for complete separation. If tlio milk is for cheese , aerate it well , thoroughly stirring and cooling to 75 de grees before starting to factory. Milk should never bu allowed to stand where it is subjected to foul odors of any kind. Nothing but bright , absolutely clean tin pails and causshould boused in hand ling milk. Mill ; must never bo allowed to stand in cans afterbcingreturncd to the farm , and they should be thoroughly washed in warm water ana then scalded with water boiling hot , and thoroughly scoured with salt at least twice a week. Soap , soda or such alkalies should not be used to clean cans or pails. Improving tlio Farm. Orange County Farmer : The best and shortest way to improve n farm is to reduce - duce tin1 stock , plow your fallows in win ter so that the soil will bo warm and dry and the sub-oil decomposed early in the spring. Harrow well and then s'ow ten or twelve quarts of grass seed to the aero when you put in your outs. If all lake , your chance is good for obtaining from 'live to ten acres of oais ami a field seeded down to grass. Then prepare as many acres for rye sowing , provided your land is not good enough lor wheat and the two crops will give you nil the straw you need and the corn field , with usual good luck , will produce enough to fat stock. At the end of the sen.-on you will luivo to pro duce from fifteen or twenty acres of land , represented in oats , corn and potatoes ami as many acres sown with rye and wheat. Keep ju t Plonk enough to eat up the produce in grain nnd hay , and alter gathering your no.\t year's cropof hay and grain , covering wiy lifty nuroof your farm of 100 acres , you may think of adding as many cattle us your farm will sustain without purchasing very heavily of foreign supplies , By tlio end of the fourth year you are ready to put in a crop of wheat and save plowing up your bottom meadow , yon have re-seeded the whole farm and are now ready to en largo your dairy and at the expiration of ton yours your land ought to boin a condi- lion to double your crops and the mini- her of your cattlo. This is i rotation. Tlio I'Vont lor of Draft llorso. IntorfiMH. National Stockman and Farmer ; \Vcst- orn farmers , nlivo to the their own inter * csU und seeing the adaptability to the country and kind of furmin" carried on in their section of the United States , in vested their money in anil took hold ot Iho importation and breading of thu heavy draft horses in such a manner that it may be truthfully said that the "homo of thu draft horso" is on western soil , and that tlio eastern or older section of this country may bo properly considered the frontier of the draft horse interests. This is true , notwithstanding the fact thai s'cvurul of the largest importing and breeding ostabliuonts jiro situated in the eastern or middle sti"s. While im porting and breeding cstablUmenls attract thu attention of the public more through advertisements and other sources , it mu-t bo remembered tnut the "rank and lilo , " the farmers who ruisu the majority of all the horses produced in this country , are the onus to look to lor a correct idea in regard to the true status of the matter. From this stand point wo lind again the diflbrcnco in favor pf our western fiirmurs. They scorned to have roali/cd the fact at once that no class of horses was lee good for them if they could b& procured at anything like reasonable prices,1 anil the result was that these who. were jengtgcd : in introducing the best classes..tt imported horses i o- CfiVd such cncoHrapiMiicnt and patron- a ? ? Unit they piifcljprl their business for ward with fonnmmdnblo seal , nnd were successful In their vbuturcs with the ex- coptionof but fo\y \ cases. Finding it moro profitable than 'raising inferior horses , these same farmers , have increased their operations instead of dlininNhini ; them , and now many ot our eastern dealers lind customers among them more readily than they do nearer /Some. / Hints nmt .SMuROsllon1 ? . Hogs give return's so quickly flint even if only a small profit is made on each lot these profits can bu made quickly. Hogs multiply rapidly , and hence less capital is required lor beginners than for other stock. The heifer should be trained from her birth , says the Stockman , to stand , leader or allow any one to handle her. A calf treated in this manner will makoagonllo and a valuable cow , onu that will not kick , and which will be easily and moro conveniently milked. All the hmtorlal that can bo returned to tlio farm without loss is simply a sav ing of the same for another season , and as the manure may again bo converted into plant food the placing of it on the sod is to simply use raw material .tor manufacturing Into salable crops. The problem of farming consists in making the soil increasingly fertile. Manure is the farmers' savings bank , and if moro of them would have largo heaps of it every spring to spread upon their lands , instead of money at interest they would prosper hotter in the end. Clover growth is helped by llmo and plaster Large quantities of nitrogen are contained In the earth nnd air , anuclovor nusorhs nitrogen moro than any other plant. The plant and air work together in furnishing an oxlumstless supply of food for all kinds of food plants. teed ! tillage is the strongest weapon Avlth which the fanner can light hard times und gain success. Imperfect cul ture on the other hand , will scarcely en able him to gain a living from the richest soil , and the soil will deteriorate rapidly in quality from such treatment besides. Whenever rhubarb throws out a great many leaves and tno stalks are sninllnnd worthless , the roots should bo dug up and transplanted , dividing them so that only one thrifty bud is left to each picco of root. This should bo done early in the spring , as soon as the newly formed buds are ready to push through the soil. If an iron wire bo twisted during or soon after thu passage of a voltaic cur rent through it the wire becomes mag netic. When the wire is twisted in the manner of a right hand screw , the point at which the current enters becomes a south polo ; in the opposite case it be comes a north polo. If during the passage - sago of the current the wire becomes twisted in different directions , tlio po larity changes with tlio direction of the twist. i Geese can be fftWencd cheaply , as they will eagerly consifincChoppcd : turnips or any other kind of cheap material at this season ; but to get thorn very fat they should have corn also. A goo.se should not bo too fat , as i such is objectionable , but they should be kupt fat enough to present an excellent market appearance. The young gceso tliatfhavonol completed their growth , however , cannot bo fed too liberally , as they wfjll not become ex tremely fat until matured. It may not bo necessary and j'et not amiss to urge farmers to sow or drill a good supply of sweet qorn to cut up and iced to milch ( ! ows , diiVing the month of August , when pasture's dry up , or par tially so , There can bo no doubt that such corn is a wholesome and profitable supplement to-paMtiifces nt that time , or if there is , a single experiment will dispel the doubt Oats may not bo a profitable crop to raise , and in soijio sections of the country they are not , hut a few acres to bo fed by cutting the bundles in a cut- tinjbox _ and feeding with bran in con nection witii other winter feed will pay well. well.How How to make a cheap and ample gate in a wire fence is thus described in the ( ieriniintpwn Telegraph : The fence is made as if no gate wore thought of , and then the wires are all tightly stapled to the two gate posts. After this a light post is placed close to one of the gate posts , and to this every wire is stapled , after which they are clipped between this and tiic gate post , and tlio gate is then read } ' to swing , tlio wires being hinges themselves. Only a 'fastening is required to kooi ) the loose post in place , and a gate is ready for use that will answer very well where it is only occasionally used. Often has it been known of a cow eat ing poisonous substances without injury to herself , says the Farmers' Magazine , but her milk was impregnated with the poison or diseased germs , injuring Hie human consumer. Milk is much moro tenacious in receiving impurities than water , as it seems , nccorimii ! to some writers , that the impurities .of tlio ani mal's system are unloaded into the lac teal ducts nnd pass oil' into the milk pail , impregnate the system oi the consumer ; and for this reason the cow should not be compelled to breath foul air in the stables , or use food or drink which will injury the milk The [ injustice of soiling eggs by count will appear' when it is stated that a dozen of the 1'arger s'r/.o weigh twenty-four ounces , wiiilo a do/on of the smaller si/.o.s weigh but fourteen and one-half ounces , The dark colored eggs are moro nutritious than thu white , tno color ot tint shell being an indication of the qual ity of the contents , and neither i- deter mined by the food of the hen , any moro than thu quality of the wool , whether long or short , line or coar.-c , is deter mined by tlio feed of the slioop , Bo-ton buyers make a diU'erenco of M per crmt. onjtho prici ! , in favor of the dark colored cgf's , as they find the saino number will makes richer cakes , custard , puddings , etc. _ _ Tlic Trade in Slave ( Jirls at Stain- Constantinople Correspondence of the , Now York Times ; . .

This second end "lot" was a little iietter , but not much.
