ARTIFICIAL HEAT FOR FOWLS. —Daring
the cold winter months, when the ther
mometer not only goes far below Bero but
remains there and we draw closer to our
fires or furnaces, exposing ourselves as lit
tle as possible to the severe cold, we nat
urally think more in regard to the use of
artificial heat for fowls, and perhaps some
of us are inclined to make experiments for
ourselves. This is a good idea if propei ly
carried out, but one should understand
thoroughly just what he proposes to ac
complish by this experiment. At the first
glance it seems to be the most natural
ihmg in the world to give fowls the benefit
of artificial warmth, on the principle that
what is beneficial for man cannot be hurt
ful for fowls. But let us consider the ques
tion for a moment. If your sole object is
the fattening ot your birds and the produc
tion of eggs without regard to the future
welfare of your stock, then by ail means
use artificial heat, for there is no question
but that this is de&irabte in the production
of fat and eggs, if you begin this treat
ment, however, remember lhat you must
not let the fixe go out or the heat abate bo
low a certain point, lor if this happens
your labor will have beou thrown away
and your stock injured, since fowls aw very
susceptible to chills and suddeu colds alter
being accustomed to artificial warmth. If
you wish to broed from your present stock
retain a portion of it iu ) our yards lor a
,'ouger time than the present waiter. It
prooably would be a mistake to resort to
artificial heat, as it sarely enervates and
renders delicate lue siock subjected to its
Influence, aud the result is poor, puny spe
cimens for chicks and a debilitated stock.
Oa the whole, then, for general purposes,
it is better not to rely ou extraneous heat,
but have your fowl houses well protected
and as large a proportion of glass iu the
south and east sides as possible. This will
usually luruish sufficient warmth, anu
even, where it is a little cool it is better for
the fowls (admitting the loss of a few eggs
at the present time), than it is to furnish
too great an amount of heat and thereby
lender your entire stock weak and debili
tated. This course would also prevent
allowing the fowls any range, as the change
from a heated room to the cold air without
would be too great a oue lor safety. The
variety, however, makes quite a difference,
as a hardy, vigorous fowl like the Fly
mouth Rock will endure change of all
kinds much better tbau a delicate one like
the bpanisfi. The Plymouth Rock, more
over, does not necessarily demand the
range required by the Spanish add Leg
horn, and for lhat reason, as well as many
others, is the best breed or variety for gen
EFKECT OFORFORT ON THE QUALITY OF
THE MILK. —The quiet and coiiilon ot ILE
cow has much to do with the quality ot
her milk, lu hot weather, the annoyance
produced by flies, and excitement caused
by fighting them, makes the night's milk
still poorer than it otherwise would be.
Chemical analysis has shown a gnat falling
oil of fat in the milk of the same cew when
chased by a dog. Any unusual excitement
of the Cow affects the fat in her milk. Ey
of heat and cold a'so affect the milk.
a case where cows went into a stream in
hot weather, and stood several hours in the
water above the knee, there was a falling
elf of the butter product from the same
quautity of milk. This is accounted for
by the extra food required to keep up the
animal heat, in consequence of the heat
beiug carried off by the water.
When we consider the fact that milk is
secreted from the blood, we can readily see
the effect that must be produced by ex
citement on the nervous system ol the cow.
In a case occurring in the city of Albany,
N. Y., where a nervous cow was miiked
by a passionate man, who whipped and
otherwise ill-treated her at milking, the
milk was givtu to a child who bad been
healthy, but, after using this milk, became
ill and suffered from intestinal irritation,
followed by a fever which seemed to affect
the brain and nervous system. Ttis ill
was traced directly to the milk of this
11- treated cow.
PKXSZBYISG Eaoi. —Several plans have
been tried with more or less success. To
preserve eggs, the pores of the shell must
be stopped up, for two reasons: to prevent
the entrance of the air, and consequent
spoiling of the contents; and to prevent
the evaporation of the moisture of the egg
and a drying up of the contents. Placing
the eggs in a net or basket, and plunging
ithem for a few seconds in boiling water~
long enough to c.x)k or solidify a thin film
of white next to the shell, is successfully
prrcticed in some families, but it would
spoil the egg 9 for sale. Closing the pores
by gmearing the shell with lard, suet or
iiaseed oil, has been tried with more or less
success. Many years ago a patent was ta
ken out for the use of sheliaG varmae for
the same purposes. The care requ red in
llie use af the varnish, as each egg must
be treated separately, and as a slight un
covered spac: would allow the egg to spoil
besides the discoloration prevented this
irom coming into use.
GYPSUM—PI.ASTKK OF PARIS.— When
gypsum, cr crude plaster, is heated to 272
degrees it loses the water it naturally con
tains, and becomes plasterof Paris. Though
the operation is called "burning," it takes
place at a comparatively low temperature.
When mixed with water, it re-uuites with
that, afld becomes chemically the same as
it was before, and when le ground is pro
bably as valuable a fertilizer as the "raw
stone-" We say "probably," as wo are
not sure that it is quite so soluble as at
first, though it is not likely that there is
any perceptible difference in this respect.
The usual time for applying gypsum on
clover is in the spring, when vegetation is

PRUNING THE NCRWAY BPKCCE —Prun
ir g may be done for very opposite ends.
If the spruce is planted as a hedge or
screen, then it needs to be dwarfed rather
than encourage to grow upward. Cutting
back the new growth, before it has yet
hardened, is generally done in June; this
has the effect to keep the tree in a dwarf,
compact form, if the object is merely to
regulate th 3 shape, by removing or short
ening certain branches, it may be done in
autumn at any time before severe weather
comes. For cutting away the lower limbs
of a Norway spruce, or other evergreen,
there is no one "proper time."
CORN FODDER. —WeII-cured com fodder
has a feeding value almost equal to hay,
and yet this fact is only appreciated by a
few farmers. Cut up fine—butts and all
—and fed with bran and com meal, it is
first rate provender: nor should it be for
gotten that the butts are the best part.
BLACK BEAN SOUP —Wash ami soak
over night in tepid water one pint ot
black beans. In the morning add four
quarts of cold water, a ham boue, and
boil slowiy till the beans are soft, replen
ishing the water as it boils away. Rub
the beans through a colander, luasmng
them, and return to the kettle, having
taken out the ham bone. Chop two hard
boiled eggs, and slice one lemon very thin,
add a pinch of red pepper aud salt
if the ham boue has not made it salt
enough. If you wish, you can mould a
quarter of a pound of sausage meat into
small balls the size of a marble and throw
them into the soup for forcemeat balls,
and cook about ten minutes. You
should have three quarts of soup for this
quantity of beans, aud it should have the
thickness of turtle soup. Black beaus are
9 cents a pint, lemoua are 2 cents a piece,
two eggs cost 6 cents; so that the deli
cious and nourishing dish need cost but 20
cents, when eggs are near the highest.
Instead of the ham bone, auy meat boue
can be used, or a pig's foot or calf's foot,
skinned, make a very rich soup of this
toundatiou. But it requires no meat loue

From time immemorial the horse has been
man's bet Mend. Biit a few years back we can
all remember the comparatively little attrition
paid to this most indispensable of animals. We
say comparatively little attention, for the horse
was as well groomed, and certainly as well fwi.a*
now; and at those great gatherings—agricultural
shows—you would seo the pride of the oovnty
and State stables and furms ossemblod. But
there was a conspicuous want of noble draught
horses, and as for speeders—well, 2:40 war. the
great ultimate limit that owners in those days
desired to strive for. But now a2 40 aninal Is
esteemed a fair roadster, and fine animal* ouly
deserve the name when tfll-y can shade the first
quartorof the third minute. There have been im
mense strides forward in the right development of
horseflesh In the civilized countries of the world,
as shown by the time-records of the raters and
use Ail, work-horse. Many things haveconspired
to effect this desirable end, chief among which
have been the intelligent care and consideration
bestowed upon the animal In bis every relation
—in a word, upon the breeding. And this has
not failed to include a very serious modification
of the old methods of treatment, doing away, In
many cases, with the Inhuman and really savage
plans pursued in the eradication of cvcraeimple
disorders and ailments, and substituting rational
measures of relief liflHcad. A prominent (Actor
of this reform, and one indorsed by owners,
breeders, farmers and stockmen the country over,
is ST. JACOBS OIL, recognized by all who have
used it as an exceptionally good remedy for tho
ailments of the horse and stock generally, meet
ing more indications for its use and effecting fiir
better results than any article of a curative or
remedial nature ever introduced. Buch breeders
