—The partitions between the stalls
should be so boarded up that no two cows
can feed from the same manger or can lick
—It is stated that in Minnesota the sun-
flower is raised for fuel, an acre furnishing
a year’s supply fora family, the heads,
seeds and stalks all being burned.
—Dust the yellow squash bug with soot,
ashes, lime or any fine dust. ~ Dust makes
life disagreeable for the pestiferous beetle
and he will try to get away from it.
—Put in the turnip crop now, as the
rains have made the conditions very favor-
able. A crop of turnips will be found a
very useful addition to the winter foods.
—A lawn is more ornamental toa resi-
dence than shrubbery, and is easily made,
but there is nothing more unsightly near a
dwelling house than a lawn that isnot well
—On all well regulated farms the ma-
nure heap receives more care than anything
else produced. It is a proverb that a farm-
er can be judged by the manner in which
he keeps his manure heap.
—Dogs seldom attack sheep if one mem-
ber of the flock has a bell, as sheep-killing
dogs are suspicious and dislike the noise or
alarm. Breeders who have tried bells re-
port favorably of their use.
—When stock animals have the free use
of a pasture it will be greatly to their ad-
vantage to give them salt. It is a correc-
tive of the injurious effects of too much
young grass, and is also a substance re-
quired by them to promote digestion. A
small quantity of salt once a day will be

worms, cut worms, root borers, eto., plow
the land, then plow again late in the fall,
after frost appears, following by another

the land will be kept loose and the insects
and other enemies which remain in the
ground for next year will be destroyed to a
— Strawberries are now throwing out
runners, and the rows should be kept
clean, as recent, ait will aid the weeds to
crowd out the ru . The ground should
be loose and soft for the runners, as they
will get a much better start on soft ground
and grow rapidly. If runners are set out
in August or early in September, it will
save performing such work in the spring.
—One of the most uséful appliances on a
tarm and which costs but very little com-
pared with the many uses to which it can
be put, is the windmill. It grinds food,
provides water for stock and can be used
for irrigating small plots. They are now
being adapted for purposes of irrigation on
many large farms,. two or more windmills
being sufficient to fill a large reservoir and
keep a constant supply of water.
—The odor of the hog pen is very dis-
agreeable in summer, and yet it can be
avoided by cleanliness. The time has
passed when filthy food is regarded as suit-
able for swine, and farmers have paid
dearly for experience by loss of their herds
from hog cholera. Clean the pig pen every
day during the warm days of summer and
throw dry dirt on the floor. Dry earth is
an absorbent and its use daily makes it an
easy matter to clean the pen.
Creamery butter is superior to that made
on the farms because the creameries are fit-
ted with all the latest appliances for pro-
ducing butter of uniform quality. The
farmer cannot compete with the creamery
because he has not the facilities for so doing.
Individuals, however, who make a spec-
ialty of choice butter, and whoare supplied
with all that assists in the lessening of la-
bor, can usually secure better prices than
is obtained for creamery butter.
—One of the most valuable ‘plants of re-
cent introduction into this country is crim-
son, or scarlet clover. It grows on land upon
which red clover cannot bé made a profita-
ble crop and it occupies the land, like rye,
at a season of the year when the land is
not in use. Although crimson clover has
been known in the United States, and es-
pecially in the South, for about 15 years,
yet is only five or six years ago that it be-
gan to receive attention as a valuable crop
for renewing the nitrogen of soils, Dela-
ware giving it more prominence than any
other State; in fact, the best seed comes
from Delaware, and the farmers of that
State grow crimson clover both for its seed
and for plowing under. New Jersey also
grows large crops and it is used for hay,
while in many sections of Pennsylvania
crimson clover is seeded down every fall
to be turned under forcorn in the spring.
In Pennsylvania however, where red clov-
er can he grown on every farm, the crim-
son variety will not supersede it, but there
is a place on the farm for crimson clover
even when red clover is a leading crop.
SEEDED IN AUGUST.
Crimson clover is seeded down in Au-
gust. It may be sown in September, but
experiments show that it gives better re-
sults when the seed is put in during Au-
gust, as it then has more time to become
hardy before winter. It is a hardy plant,
never winter killed, and springs up as early
as rye, coming into blossom two or three
weeks before red clover. When in blossom
the field is a perfect mass of scarlet flowers,
.and one of the most heautiful sights to be
Like red clover, it derives nitrogen
from the air, through the agency of its roots,
which take up the ammonia and nitric acid
brought down by the rains, and it is claim-
ed also that its leaves have the property of
deriving the free nitrogen from the atmos-
phere, which is added to the soil when the
crop is plowed under. It is this character-
istic, peculiar to all the leguminous plants,
which makes it so valuable, as it will grow
and thrive on sandy soils or land upon
which red clover will not thrive.
—While the proper way to grow the
crimson clover is to seed it on a piece of
land ready prepared for that purpose, yet
some farmers find it profitable to grow it
asa ‘‘catch crop;’ that is, after the corn
has received its last working the crimson
clover seed is broadcasted over the corn-
field, no harrowing being required, as it is
seldom that the seed fails to germinate if
given any chance at all, and it is also grown
on wheat and oats stubble land that has
been scratched over with a harrow; but it
is better to plow such lands and seed the
clover properly On every vacant place
the seed may be sown, as it will at least do
no harm to the land, to have a half
crop, forevery pound of the clover that
can be turned under in the spring is a gain
of nitrogen and reduces the amount that
would otherwise be expended for fertilizer.
Republicans in Despair.
WASHINGTON, July 14.—Reports com-
ing here from Western states heretofore
pretty safely Republican in presidential
years and regarded up to the present as
certain togo for McKinley this year show
that the Republicans are not merely fright-
ened at the outlook, but have gotten over
their fright and settled down in despair to
the conviction that Bryan will carry them.
This seems to be the case in both Nebraska
and Michigan. For instance: ‘Certainly
Nebraska will give her electoral vote to
Bryan if there is a fusion between the Dem-
ocrats and Populists,”’ said a Nebraska Re-
The man who said that just came from
the state, is a close observer and takes an
active interest in politics.
“Of course, you mustn’t quote me as
saying this, but it is a fact nevertheless,
and it is useless for Republicans to deny it
or try to conceal it. Bryan will carry the
state if the Populists indorse him, and there
is no doubt they will.”
As to Michigan, the evidenceis even
stronger, as it comes from a man who for
the last six weeks has been in correspondence
with Republican county chairman and Re-
publican political workers in all parts of
the state. This man was in Washington
to-day and admitted to friends that the
rank and file of the Michigan Republicans
were so permeated with silver sentiment
that in his judgment nothing could pre-
vent the state from going for Bryan in No-
Silver is Gaining Ground.
Elkin, the Coming Chairman, Expresses His Views on
HARRISBURG, July 14.—Deputy Attor-
ney-General Elkin announced informally
to-day that he would be appointed chair-
man of the Republican State committee.
Speaking of the campaign, Mr. Elkin said
he observed that the silver movement was
gaining some ground in Pennsylvania, but
he felt sure that McKinley would carry
the State by a great majority, and would
Auditor-General Mylin, who was perma-
nent chairman of the last State convention,

the rules, select Mr. Elkin as Quay’s. suc-

“The Republicans will have a campaign
fund of $20,000,000 to send out speakers
and distribute literature and organize in
every doubtful State,” says the Washing-
ton Post. Whence will this fund come to
debauch the people and fasten the shackels |
of the gold monopoly upon them ? The us-
urers and gold gamblers of London and
New York will advance it. Who will re-
pay it? The very people whom it buys, for
the usurers will squeeze it out of them
again with 1,000 per cent. interest.
— Western Christian Advocate (Meth-
odist Episcopal Cincinnatti) :Mr. Bryan is
as spotless as Major McKinley, and like
him in generous social impulses. He is a
Presbyterian. He is western through and
through. Thirty-five a man must be to be
eligible to the presidency. He is thirty-
six. Wherever heard and on whatever sub-
ject, he edifies and charms his hearers.
Many a young man will rush to his stand-
ard whom an older candidate could not
have influenced. And many another, it is
to be hoped, though he may not follow
him politically, will imitate his example in
“neither smoking, chewing, swearing, nor
drinking, and using pure language.

Castoria promotes Digestion, and overcomes
Flatulency, Constipation/Sour Stomach, Diarrhea
and Feverishness. Thus the child is rendered
healthy and its sleep natural. Castoria contains
no Morphine or other narcotic property.
“Castoria is so well adapted to children that I
recommend it as superior to any prescription
known to me.” nA Asm D,

From personal knowledge and observation I
can say that Castoria is a excellent medicine for
children, acting as a laxative and relieving the
ent up bowels and general system very much..
Many mothers have told me of its excellent ef-
fect upon their chiidren.”

Hard of Hearing for 85 Years, Caused by Ca-

Replying to your

ublished by Dr. Salm, will say, that I was under
is treatment for 10 months for my hearing. It
was catarrh of the middle ear, and like yourself,
could hear better some days than others, could
hear better in noise. My hearing was very much
improved by the treatment, and have no doubt,
hut that he can help you. Dr. Salm appears to be
an honest man, and, he will tell Zoi the truth,
whether he can help you or not. If I were you, I
would certainly consult him. I was longer afflic-
ted than you. My hearing was bad in one ear for
about 35 years, and in the other for about 24 or 25
years. opiig that your hearing will be entirely

Case of Catarrh Cured by Dr. Salm.
Rev. J. D. Leister, Swales, Pa.
Yours came to
hand to-day. Dr. Salm treated my 13 year old boy
for catarrh in the head, and cured him in 6
months. I don't know whether he can cure you
or not, but on examination he will tell you the
truth. I know aman here, that he examined
and he told him that he could not be cured. 1
know other people, that he done a great deal of
Sood in other cases.

Granulated Lids Cured by Dr. Salm.
For the last four years I have been troubled
very much with granulated eye lids; it partly
blinded me. Doctors here did me no Food, it also
seemed to affect my general health. Dr. Salm has
cured me. I can again see splendidly, and fee’
better than ever.
Indiana, Pa., Dec. 5th, 1894.
Thaught I Would Lose my Mind, but Dr. Sclm
Cured Me. ’
For years I have been sufferin with catarrh
and ear trouble, and was miserable indeed, I
thought sometimes I would lose my mind on ac-
count of the fearful noises in my head, and then
my hearing was leaving me rapidly, and there
was’ent an organ about me rhat was'ent out of
shape. But to-day, thanks to Dr. Salm, all those
fearful noises have left me. Can hear well, no
more catarrh, and feel as well as any one of my
age could expect.

Mrs. Emma Brant,
Four of the Best Doctors in .the County Said
She was Incurable, but Dr. Salm Made a
Healthy Woman of Her.
For over five years I have been suffering with
heart trouble and a bad case of dropsy. We went
to four of the best doctors in the county for relief
but all of them said a cure was impossible. At
times I felt so bad that I was certain I had to die.
I fainted away very often, and my friends told me
afterwards that every moment would be my last.
And I hereby affirm that had it not been for the
splendid treatment received from Dr. Salm, who
has entirely cured me of that great trouble, J
would have been under the sod long ago.

Dr. Salm Worked Another Miracle.
For more than 8 years I have been suffering un-
told agonies, with stomach and general trouble.
I became thin and pale, too weak to work, and
hardly able to drag ngsels around. I looked so
badly, that my neighbors, friends and relatives
thought I had SonRHmptisn, and wouldn't last
much longer. During those 8 years about 10 or
12 of our best doctors treated me, but I became
worse and worse, until I went to Dr. Salm, and I
can not eat more in a day, than 1 have heretofore
in a week, can attend to my daily labors, look
finely, have no more pains, and I actually think I
am well, People around here think Dr. Salm
worked another miracle, and I am thankful to
him, for he has saved me from an early grave.
