SE a RE aaa B SARE,
—Have a receptacle for the liquid manure
and make all preparations for saving it be-
fore winter comes, so as to have the stalls
dry and a more valuable manure heap.
—A box of oatmeal should be kept ina
handy place so as to add a handful of the
oatmeal to every pail of water given the
horse, which will prevent many of the ill
effects of watering the horse when he has
not cooled sufficiently after being driven,
—The hog that is forced to consume filthy
food may do so from necessity, but it will
not make the growth which could be ob-
tained from better food. Economy in the
production of pork is practiced most when
the hogs are given food which they relish
and which makes a perceptible gain.
—Two tablespoonfuls of kerosene to a
gallon of ashes or slacked lime, carefully
stirred in so as to prevent caking, has been
found to be an effective remedy against the
striped cucumber or melon beetle. Dust
the plants three times a week, from a tin
can having the bottom full of holes.
—The bull should be made to work and
furnish tread power, instead of the horse.
At such work he can be very useful, and
will not only be benefited thereby, but be
less vicious and more manageable. He
should at least furnish power for churning
and cutting the feed, which workis not
—A great many of the diseases that kill
mature ewes are brought on by their poor
condition in the fall. They have not the
disease-resisting vitality of those that are
well nourished. And, moreover, the cause
of weak and dead lambs is due to the same
fact. It is best to feed the ewes a half-
pound of oats each day to get them in
—Sheep, says a writer, are subject to in-
ternal parasites much more than formerly,
and flocks are often decimated by them.
Salt sulphur and spirits of turpentine are
the best remedy. To administer it take
salt, four parts ; sulphur, one part ; tur-
pentine enough to slightly moisten ; mix
them and place in the trough when the
animals are hungry for salt.
—Much of the food given to animals is
wasted in the careless manner in which it
is handled, hay being thrown into loose
racks or narrow troughs, or even on the
floor of the stalls in excess of the actual
requirements, a portion being trampled. A
saving can also be made in grinding the
grain during the winter when labor is not
so high, and will consequently be more
—A fruit man gives this advice : If it
becomes necessary to remove any large
limbs from the fruit trees, always make
two cuts, one ten or twelve inches from
where the limb should be cut. This will
remove the weight and thus avoid the
bruising and splitting ; then the stub left
can be cut close to the shoulders and leave
the wound in better shape. Such wounds
should be covered with grafting wax, or
white lead will do.
—The hot water treatment for cereal
smuts, so repeatedly and widely publish-
ed, seems to have attracted very little at-
tention from farmers. There is no doubt
that this very simple treatment, once gen-
erally used, would greatly increase the
value of Northern wheats, so notoriously
smutted at present, besides increasing the
yield at least ten per cent. The millers
need especially to unite in absolutely re-
fusing to receive smutted wheat.
—Butter that has a greasy appearance is
not attractive in market, although it may
be fresh and good. Too much working of
the butter sometimes occurs. It is only
necessary to get rid of the surplus water or
milk, the grain to be retained as much as
possible. It requires experience to fully
understand when the butter is just right,
but while some are careful in that respect
* the large majority seem inclined to work
the butter longer than is necessary.
—When buying trees do not depend on
the catalogues to help you in selections,
but learn, if possible, which varieties will
thrive best in your section. When a tree
is planted and a mistake made, it may be
years before the error can be discovered,
when there will be not only a loss of time
but of fruit, while disease may appear or
the tree prove unprofitable. The first
steps in tree planting are the most im-
portant, and especially in the selection of
White clover-is a hardy plant and isa
favorite with all classes of stock. Sheep
prefer it to anything else. The seed is not
difficult to sow and it will pay to broadcast
it now wherever there is a chance for it to
secure a stand. Much of the seed may
grow, but white clover will appear on many
spots that are not now covered. No pasture
is complete without it. It will make suffi-
cient growth to become established before
winter and start off early in the sfting.
—Many farms in this State have entailed
more labor than was cheerfully bestowed
in piling stones taken from the land, stone
fences being seen for miles, yet right along-
side of these fences of stone the farmers
have driven fetlock deep in mud for years,
when they could have used the stones to
better advantage on the roads than in any
other manner, as they were encumbrances.
Now that the stonebreaker quickly reduces
the stone for the purpose, muddy road
should be covered with stone. :
—There is much waste every year in al-
lowing sweet cornstalks to stand and dry
-up after the greater part of the ears have
been removed. The nubbins that are left
are worth more to feed green than they can
be for any other purpose. They are worse
than worthless to keep for seed next year.
Yet on scores of farms this is what the last
nubbins of sweet corn are left to be every
year, while the farmer wonders that he is
unable to raise such good early crops of
sweet corn as he used to do.
—It is often thought that if weeds are
piled in heaps and left todry and are burn-
ed that all danger from their dropping seed
is avoided. Yet unless brush has been
mixed with the weeds so as to make a hot-
ter fire withsome coals some of the seeds
will escape. This is seen every year where
weeds have been burned the previous sum-
mer in the growth of weeds of the same
kind as those that were burned. As the
weeds dry the seed falls out of them, drop-
ping to the soil, and the slow burning of
wet or damp weeds concentrates carbonic
acid gas under the heap, so that much of
what is there found, though it be thorough-
ly dried, cannot burn. The seeds of some
kinds of weeds are made more sure to
grow by being exposed to extreme heat.
The Fifty-Cent Dollar.
All dollars issued by the United States
contain one hundred cents. The goldites
call the silver dollar a fifty-cent dollar be-
cause the silver bullion in a dollaris only
worth in the market now as much as the
gold in a gold: dollar. This is nota fair
argument, because the greenback is not a
fifty cent dollar, and the paper of which it
is composed is worth less than one cent,
and it would be very ridiculous to call the
greenback a one-cent dollar. Every silver
dollar in circulation will buy just as much
as a gold dollar, and there are more than
four hundred millions of silver dollars in
circulation, including the actual coin in
circulation about sixty millions and the
silver certificates in circulation amount to
about three hundred and fifty millions.
The silver certificates are by law redeema-
ble in silver dollars and nothing else. If a
person takes a silver certificate to the
Treasury Department he can get a silver
dollar. Notwithstanding the silver in cir-
culation and the silver certificates repre-
senting silver coin in the Treasury circu-
lates on a par with gold, the goldites per-
sist in calling them fifty-cent dollars.
Some goldites have gone so far as to utter
the bold lie that the government credit is
behind the silver dollar. There is nothing
behind the silver dollar or the silver certifi-
cate except the legal-tender function which
is bestowed upon the dollar by Congress.
The law commands everybody to receive
silver dollars ‘n payment of debts and
taxes. That keeps them on a par with
gold without any agreement, expressed or
implied, to redeem them ingold. But the
goldite suggests that if silver was remonet-
ized the silver dollar would then be worth
only fifty cents, and in the same breath he
says that bullion in the hands of the silver
miner would be doubled in value. Now,
if the silver is worth only fifty cents, how
could the silver bullion be doubled in
value ? It would be a strange phenomena
to have the amount of bullion required to
make a dollar silver worth only one hun-
dred cents and the dollar afterwards coined
worth only fifty cents. The argument
that the silver miner would be benefitted
50 per cent, on the value of his bullion is
an admission that silver bullion would go
up to par with gold, and that being the
case, where would the fifty-cent dollar
come from ?—gSilver Knight Watchman, of
Washington, D. C.
The depression from which this country
has been suffering has been attributed to
many causes ; to tariff legislation and the
lack of it ; to tariff agitation and free silver
agitation ; to want of confidence and ex-
cessive confidence, or overtrading ; to over
production, or a persistent misfit between
demand and supply, and, to the practical
abandonment of silver as a monetary basis
and the concentration of our financial sys-
tem upon the other precious metal. The
citizens suffering from prolonged hard
times have a right to ask doubtfully why
this last named reason for our troubles is
the true reason. They have reason to sus-
pect a fault in the judgment of leaders who
in other political campaigns protested with
equal vehemence that all the woes of the
land were due to agitation of some sort, or
want of confidence, or the tariff, and who
now put the blame on currency or the cur-
rency agitation. The plain people who do
the voting and have not time or taste for
much reading, are fully warranted in receiv-
ing with distrust all assurances from what-
ever quarter as to the meaning and the cause
and the cure of this long continued depres-
sion, and we will lay before them for quiet
consideration these few significant facts
which may aid them to make up their
minds as to the nature of the troubles that
beset us and the hest escape from them.
First : the fall in prices began in 1873,
when the demonetization of silver also be-
gan, not in America alone, but in Europe
Second ; the prolonged period of depres-
sion has not been confined to America
alone, or to the nations having a protective
tariff, or to free trade nations, but it has
been world wide.
Third : the only disturbing cause having
world-wide effect upon every branch of
trade and industry was that adjustment of
the money standard which was undertaken
at very nearly the same time by the United
States, Germany, France, Holland and the
Scandinavian nations, which finally brought
the rest of the civilized world to the gold
basis and caused the stoppage of silver
coinage even in India.
These three points are worth thinking
over and they suggest a close relation of
cause and effect. They can not be explain-
ed away.—Lancaster Intelligencer.

Hard of Hearing for 35 Years, Caused by Ca-

Rev. J. D. Leister, Swales, Pa.
J : Replying to your
ngnps, as to testimonial with my signature,
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,
but that he can help you. Dr. Salm appears to be
an honest man, and he will tell you 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. oping 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 a man here, that he examined
and he told him that he could not be cured.
know other people, that he done a great deal of
ood 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 good, 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, 1804.
Thaught I Would Lose my Mind, but Di. Sali
For years I have been suffering with catarrh
and ear trouble, and was miserable indeed. 1
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, I
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 Speer around. I looked so
badly, that my neighbors, friends and relatives
thought I had a 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 1
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.
