—A good cow is not always fat; she con-
verts her food into milk rather than into
—Provide plenty of water where the cows
can get at it, not only for the comfort but
for the sake of your pocketbook.
—The sooner milk is cooled after being
drawn from the cow the better. Why
‘ would not the same rule apply to cream
from the separator ? .
—Pinch back the geraniums, carnations,
jasmines, etc., intended for the winter
blooming, the more points to the branches
the more blossoms.
—How is the water supply in the back
lot? Those colts or that young stock may
be suffering for want of water. Better look
into the matter now.
—With good management a butter farm
should grow richer and richer. A ton of
butter removes only a few cents’ worth of
—Pansy seed may be sown now in the
sheltered bed, and with slight protection
during the winter the plants will be ready
—=See that all weeds are kept from the
flower beds now; if a single one is missed
and allowed to ripen seed, there will be
trouble ahead for next year.
—Over-churning compacts the milk into
the butter in such a way that no amount
of washing can get it out. To avoid this,
stop when the butter is in a granular
—Some good butter makers let the but-
ter stand in strong salt and water after
churning, claiming that it salts the butter
more evenly, and more effectually removes | 82
—Most diseases among swine start from
a filthy pen. Undoubtedly hog cholera
started there. Disease germs live and
grow in filth, and the sickness of one con-
taminates the whole herd.
—Don’t let your horse stand in a chronic
state of terror of you. Let him know you
are his friend. The horse that is afraid of
his master is always treacherous and easily
rattled. He knows not what to expect.
—A farmer could now buy a thorough-
bred rooster very cheap, while they are
young. He could raise him, and in the
spring kill off all other roosters, and thus
have something that will grade up his
dunghill stock wonderfully, at very little
cost. If the farmer won’t bother with it,
then let his wife do it.
—A few horses, like people, are bad tem-
pered and vicious by nature, but they are
more rare than human beings of that class.
The majority of bad horses are made so by
unkind or unwise treatment, and most of
the evil is done while they are yet colts, or
in the process of breaking. A horseman
cannot be too gentle.
— Before giving up the farm for another
business which promises to better returns,
study close the chances for success or fail-
ure. The farmer has his house rent and
table supplies without deducting them
from the profits of business. The business
man is no better off who is making twice
—If you have a piece of waste land that
is absolutely good for nothing, why not
turn it into a poultry yard. A dry, stony
spot where vegetation never grows, is just
the place fowls will do well in, especially
in wet and cold weather. You are realiz-
ing nothing from such land now and hens
might bring you a profit.
—Prof. Shusof says that onions make a
nerve tonic not to be despised. They tone
up the worn out system, and if eaten free-
ly will show good results in case of ner-
vous prostration. If a sprig of parsley
dipped in vinegar and eaten after an onion
no unpleasant odor from the breath can be
detected. And in addition to this valua-
ble and important bit of information, on-
ions eaten freely, he says, beautify the
—Milk is liable to he affected by the
health and food of the animal supplying it.
Frequently it happens that the animal can
eat certain herbs which apparently do not
injure them, but which poisons the milk.
If a cow drinks polluted water her milk
will be contaminated, although the animal
may not seem to be affected. Under cer-
tain conditions bacteria developes very rap-
idly in milk. If vessels in which the
milk is kept be not kept perfectly clean,
or if the room or refrigerator contains any
decaying substance the milk will quickly
.—All orchards in full bearing should
have an annual top-dressing of mineral fer-
tilizers. But the ony fu lav blos-
somed heavily shou so be dressed with
stable manure used as a mulch and spread
under them a little further than their roots
extend, which in bearing trees will cover
the entire ground between them and their
neighbors on either side. If the hogs are
turned in to root under the trees they will
mix the earth and the top dressing manure
so that the soil will be in the best possible
condition to hold the rainfall and keep it
in position for use by the tree roots. Man-
aged in this way the apple crop will not be
injured by dry weather late in the season.
- —In some sections of the country, par-
ticularly in the northwest, many apple
trees are destroyed by what is known as
sun scald. In fact, Professor Green of the
Minnesota station says that in that state
more apple trees die from sun scald than
from any other cause. The trees affected
by this disease become rotten on the south
side of the trunk, which weakens it so that
it cannot support its top, and consequently
breaks down. The cause of this trouble is
that the bark on the south or southwest
side of the tree starts into growth during
some warm winter period—before the rest
of the tree. When this warm period is
followed by a severe freeze, the new growth
is killed and the bark on the affected side
Professor Green gives some practical
methods for preventing this trouble. Any-
thing that will shade the trunk and limbs
will prevent this early growth. When the
trees are set out they should be slanted to
the southwest. If kept in that position
they will largely shade themselves. The
trunk may be protected by wrapping
around it on the approach of winter screens
of lath, boards, netting, hay and stalks of
building paper. The protection consid-
ered on the whole, safest and best is to
box the tree trunk and fill the box with
soil. This protects the trunk against sud-
den changes of temperature. With this
system in general use, Professor Green be-
lieves that the hardest apples may be grown
much farther north than is now considered
possible. These boxes have been kept
around the tree trunks continuously for
three years without harm. They will pro-
tect the trunks from mice and rabbits.
Of all the special pleas made by the
goldites, the one addressed to the pension-
er is perhaps the most reprehensible.
From whatever standpoint we approach it
the plea is not only devoid of merit in eco-
nomics, but it is open to the severest con-
demnation because of the spirit in which it
is made. z
In the first place the milliondire bankers
who, the world over, are at the head of the
gold standard movement, endeavor to de-
lude the old soldier into the belief that
they are peculiarly and exclusively his
friends. Men who virtually control the
world’s limited supply of gold, and who
realize millions of dollars profit on a
single bond dicker, seek to make it
appear that a policy which gives them
such advantages is just the thing for an $8
per month pensioner. The fact that all of
their interests lie on the side of appreci-
ating gold, while the pensioners’ $3 per
month is generally but a small part of his
interests, is studiously kept out of his
sight. Let us make a comparison. A
man’s wealth consists mostly of money and
money obligations, and it amounts to we
will say, a million dollars. If that money
can be so appreciated as to add 10 per cent,
to its purchasing power it is equivalent to
adding $100,000 to his wealth. The same
process will, of course, increase the pur-
chasing power of the old soldier’s pension,
his $8 will be enhanced 10 per cent and be-
come worth $8.80.
So the millionaire says to the old soldier,
‘‘Pard, our interests are identical. We are
both of us benefitted by ‘big dollars’. I
make $I00,000 on my money invested ;
you make 80 cents a month on your pen-
sion. Hurrah for honest money ! Shake !’’
But it so happens that the pensioner owns
a little farm worth perhaps $2,000. As the
money goes up the price of his products go
down. A crop that was worth last year
year $500 shrinks to $450, and the farm
itself drops in the same ratio. He has
ined 80 cents a month on his pension
and lost $4a month on his crop. Ulti-
mately he may lose his farm through ina-
bility to pay the mortgage, if there hap-
pen to be one on it. ‘‘Oh,’’ says his
banker friend, ‘‘that can’t be helped, it is
simply the vicissitude of fortune. You see
there is over production of the things you
are raising. Hence the low prices. But
don’t think of that. Just look at the ‘hig
dollars you are getting on pension ac-
count.” ‘‘But,” replies the pensioner,
‘‘these ‘big dollars’ will not pay any more
debts or taxes than they used to when
they were not so big, and asa result, I
have lost my home.” ‘“Well’”’ answers the
banker, ‘‘that is too bad, of course but
then you know we must have ‘honest
money’ and we are determined that you
shall not be swindled by those silver
knaves on your pension. That must he
Again, this plea to the pensioner pro-
ceeds upon the theory that the old soldier
is thoroughly and unconsciously selfish.
That no matter how blighting the effect
upon the nation, how destructive to the
prosperity of his friends and neighbors the
gold standard may be, the veteran who
risked his life for his country’s salvation, is
perfectly indifferent to its prosperity now,
and utterly callous to the suffering around
him, so long as he can get his pension of
$6, $8 or $12 a month in appreciated mon-
Every pensioner in the country ought to,
and every really deserving pensioner will
resent such an imputation upon his patriot-
The pensioner is entitled to honest dol-
lars but he isnot entitled to anything
more. A dollar that is growing bigger all
the time is not honest, and neither the pen-
sioner nor any other person has a right to
exact pay in such money.— National Bimet-
Treed By a Bear.
Eugene Black, of Hoytville, Lycoming
county, had an adventure the other day
that he will remember for some time.
While digging ginseng on the Pine creek
hills he heard a noise in the underbrush
and looking around he saw an enormous
bear emerge from the thicket and make di-
rectly for him. Eugene ran hastily to a
convenient tree and climbed up out of dan-
ger, but not before the bear had made a
vicious swipe and torn the seat out of
his trousers. Angry at being baffled the
bear attempted to gnaw the tree down, but
gave up the job after it had kept Eugene
in the top for over an hour.
——There is a chorus of praise from the
Republican press for Mr. Cleveland, now
that he has declared himself against
Mr. Bryan and the Democratic na-
tional platform. The same organs that are
80 outspoken in laudation of the president
have for years been denouncing him in un-
sparing terms. The reason for their change
of tune is of course evident. They do not
care for Mr. Cleveland now any more than
they did a year ago, but they are ready to
applaud him because he will do what he
can to defeat the Democratic national tick-
et. . The president is not to be congratula-
ted on his new admirers.
At a crowded concert a young lady,
standing at the door of the hall, was ad-
dressed by an honest Hibernian who was
in attend#nce on the occasion. ‘‘Indade,
Miss,” he said, ‘‘I should be glad to give
Jou a sate but the empty ones are all

was catarrh 6f“thie 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 “affiic-

about 35 years, and in the other for about 24 or 25

for catarrh in the head, and cured him in 6
months. Idon’t know whether he can cure you
or not, but on examination he will tell you ‘the

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, 1894.
Thaught I Would Lose my Mind, but Dr. Salm
For years I have been Sillering 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, 1
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 myself around. I looked so
badly, that my neighbors, friends and relatives
thought I had Sonssmption) 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 wors~ until I went to- Dr. Salm, and 1
can not eat more .n a day, than I have heretofore
ina week, can attend to my daily labors, look
finely, have no more pains, and I actuall 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.
