—Sheds for sheep must be kept
clean and the floors must be dry.
The straw, or other litter, used as bed-
ding, must be removed daily and add-
ed to the manure heap.
—If those who believe the potato
crop this year was too large will make
- the attempt to buy good seed potatoes
next spring, they will find potatoes
quite higl¥, and not too large a supply
on the market.
—An orchardist thinks that in most
cases it is not a good plan to fill up an
old orchard with young trees. The
80il is too much exhausted by the
growth of the former trees. Better
start a new orchard in a new place.
—Do not apply nitrate to the soil at
this season, as they are very eoluble,
and loss will result before spring.
Bone meal, however, is excellent on
lands that are not easily washed, and
will show an effect early in spring.
—A correspondent of an exchange
suggests to prevent apple trees from
splitting where they grow in forks,
taking a sprout that is growing on one
branch and grafting in the other,
The branch will grow with the tree
and become a strong brace.
—Thanksgiving turkeys will not
bring good prices unless they are fat,
and hens sell more readily than do
gobblers. If the turkeys are not in
prime condition hold them back for
Christmas, and in the meantime give
them all the corn and wheat they will
—Bowel diseases are often caused
by overfeeding, and a lack of salt will
also effect the stock. At this season,
when the horses are idle at times, they
should be fed in a manner only to keep
them in fair condition. It is of no ad-
vantage to them to make them over-
—A difference of a very few days
makes a great difference in all kinds
of crops some seasons. Clover sown
just before a beating rain would be-
come imbedded in the soil and would
grow better and stand more dry weath-
er than if sown immediately after the
—The man whose eoil is a good,
strong loam, and will give bis orchard
" extra care and attention, will make
more money from dwarf pears than
the standard varieties ; they should be
grafted on the quince, have a good
culture, and the last year’s growth kept
—When corn fodder is given to the
cows and sheep to pick overdo not
throw the refuse'stalks in the barn-
yard to be trampled, but cut them up
or shred them, so as to convert them
into absorbent material in the stalls or
barnyard. They can then also be
more readily handled for use when
—The gypsy moth, which the State
of Massachusetts has been endeavor
ing to exterminate, is the most destruc-
tive pest ever introduced into this
country, and if it gets outside of that
State it will rapidly spread, as no oth-
er State has made provisions for check-
ing it. It will entail a loss of millions
of dollars if it gets beyond control.
—-The wild varieties of grapes are
seldom affected with disease, and it
has been suggested that it will be an
advantage to graft our well-known va-
rieties on the wild kinds, which will
not only add to their hardiness, but in-
crease their productive capacity. Sev-
eral experiments made 1n grafting one
variety on another, such ae the Con-
cord on the Ive's Seedling, have given
—Potatoes may be cheap, but they
will serve as food for stock and are
profitable if fed with ground grain.
Cooked and thickened with bran or
middlings, potatoes are excellent for
hogs, and if fed warm the hogs will
show the effects of the food by grow-
ing and fattening rapidly. For pigs
potatoes and skim milk, with a small
proportion of bran, will be found one
of the best rations that can be given.
—There is more digestible matter in
the corn plant than in the grain, and
this tact is one which has been satis:
factorily demoustrated. One acre of
fodder gives more actual nutrition
than do two tons of timothy hay, and
the buts and coarser portions, which
are usually considered of but little val-
ue, contain more nutrition than the
tops and blades. It may be added that
much depends on the stage at which
the fodder wae cut, how stored, and
how prepared before feeding it to the
—The rains will carry the soluble
portions of the manure down if it is
spread on the ground now, and worked
into the soil, while the solid portions
will decompose during the winter,
rains and frost more easily decom pos:
ing it than when coarse material is
not placed in the centre of the heap.
One advantage of spreading manure in
the fall is that the labor of bauling it
can be done with less interference with
other work, than to postpone the
spreading until spring, at which sea-
son work becomes urgent.
—Ten years ago the proposition to
feed hay to hogs and chickens would
probably have been received with
doubts as to the wisdom of the attempt
but today small clover cutters for the
use of poultrymen are considered es-
sential. Clover bay is cut very fine
tor poultry, scalded and fed in small
troughs. It is not only highly rel-
ished, but increases the production of
eggs. For hogs the clover is not cut
go fine, but is cut in an ordinary feed
cutter, scalded, and sprinkled ~ with
ground grain. Bulky food has been
found necessary for hogs and poultry
as well as for horses, sheep and cattle.
An interesting and in many re-
spects remarkable piece of engineering
has just been completed in Paterson,
N. Y., is the big chimney of the new
Edisen electric plant. It is a record-
breaker as to the time of building, and
for the first time an electric hoist has
been used in the construction of a work
of the kind. Although 60 feet of the
chimney is hidden, owing to low ground
and surrounding buildings, the big pile
stands out clearly above any structure
in Paterson, and is second only to the
Clark O. N. T. chimney at Newark,
which is the largest in the State.
Exactly six weeks of actural working
days were spent in the construction of
the chimney, which is an unprecedent-
edly short time when the dimensions
are taken into consideration. Between
800,000 and 1,000,000 bricks were used
in the structure, which soars into the air
a distance of 230 feet, having a diameter
of 21 feet at the bottom and 13 feet near
the top, then spreading out to 16 feet 6
inches. The chimney is a double one,
having an outside wall 6 feet thick at
the bottom, tapering to 1 foot within a
few feet of the top, and measuring 3
feet and 2 inches at the top. The inside
wall, which runs up 130 feet, is strength-
ened every 15 feet by iron bands, to
prevent cracking, Between the two
walls is an 8-inch cold air space.

——All the railroads in the United
States using the Pullman sleeping cars
are about to present an unanimous pe-
tition to the company to have the price
of upper berths in its sleeping cars low-
ered at least 25 per cent. The Penn-
sylvania railroad has started the war
against the Pullman rates. James H.
Wood, general passenger agent of that
company, has addressed a private letter
to the general passenger agents of all the
important railroads in the country using
the Pullman sleepers asking them to
join him in a request to the Pullman
company to have the price of upper
berths reduced at least 25 per cent. be-
low the price charged for lower
AN ODE TO COLUMBUS.
The praises of Columbus,
We often do rehearse,
Sometimes in prose so stately,
Sometimes in ringing verse.
Many a once mournful melancholy,
morbid, miserable man sings the praise
of even a greater discovery than that of
Columbus. Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medi-
cal discovery opens up a new world of
hope and health to the sick. It cures
tubercular consumption which is simply
lung scrofula—the active and dangerous
development of a taint in the blood.
Its blood cleansing botanic principles
specially fit it to cleanse the blood and
prevent the formation cf ulcers in the
lungs and bronchial tubes: Liver com-
plaint, skin diseases and sores, are also
cured by it.

of Indiana $10,000 for use in the cam-

to indorse forthe national committee,
and that body of patriots having failed
to come to time. Mr. Wanamaker clears
his books by paying the money. Con-
sidering what Chairman Quay extracted
from him in 1888, and this last $10,000.
Brother Wanamaker has been pretty
well bled ; but he can stand it.
——There is a big contest over who
will do the praying for the Republican
house. The chaplainey is not sought for
the salary; which is only $900 a year,
or forany desire to better things through
the agency of morning prayers, but for
the prestige it will give the particular
divine in the way of church preferment.

nize the advantages of the Peonsylva-
‘nia railroad company’s perfect person-
allv-conducted tourist system is exem-
plified by the annual increase in the
number of participants in tours organ-
ized under that system. Aside from
this, the growing desire of Americans
to see the wonders of their land is also
an important factor in advancing this
healthy sentiment in favor of travel.
This eeason’s tours to California
will be conducted in all respects as
those of preceding years, and will
leave New York and Philadelphia
February 12 and March 11, 1896. On
the first tour a stop will be made at
New Orleans for the Mardi-Gras festivi-
ties, and four weeks will be allowed in
California. On the second tour four
and one half weeks will be allowed in
In addition to the tours to the Gold-
en Gate, a series of tours to Jackson-
ville has been arranged. The tours
will leave New York and Philadelphia
January 28, February 4, 11, 18 and 25,
and March 3, 1896, and allow two
weeks stay in the “Laud of Flowers.”

The Future Speaker of the House Will be in
Washington the 25th.
WasHINGTON, Nov. 19.—Ex-speaker
and future speaker Thomas B. Reed,
of Maine, writes that he will be in
Washington on the 25th instant. The
explanation of Mr. Reed's delay in
reaching Washington, which is gener-
ally accepted, imputes it to a desire to
avoid, as long as possible, the personal
importunities of representatives who
are ambitious of committee chairman-
ships and good committee assignments.
The pressure for these places among
the members who were re-elected to
the next House began last winter and
it is presumed that it is greatly intensi-
fied with the near approach of the re-
assembling of Congress.
The Republican caucus will meet in
the hall of the House of Representa-
tives at 8 o’clock on Saturday evening,
the 30th instant. The first business
will be the election of a speaker, fol-
lowing which the names of the various
candidates for clerk, doorkeeper, ser-
geant at arms acd postmaster will be

a curb uptown, watching the electric

the Rosettan Sahara, when suddenly he
