Remon fan Bellefonte, Pa., Jan. 22, 1897. FARM NOTES. —Shredded corn fodder makes good feed, good bedding and good manure. Shred when perfectly dry and store under a rain- proof roof, in not too great bulk, and it will keep all right. “Lime water is considered very good for scours in lambs. Where it is to be fed to all the sheep, a quart of slacked lime is put in a trough and 50 gallons of water put in. When thoroughly settled the sheep will drink it without hesitation. —The time to prepare for the garden is now. Get the manure ready and have it well rotted, making it as fine as possible. The best gardens are those which are given manure liberally and which can be well in- corporated with the soil. By rofting the manure many seeds of weeds will also be destroyed. —Great Britain has more than 30,000,- 000 sheep on a territory not greatly in excess of Minnesota and Iowa. France has 20,000,000 on a much smaller area. With their high-priced land they seem able to make profit out of their sheep. This country has room for a much greater number. —It will cost but little to maintain a co-operative organization of farmers to fight insects. One neglectful . farmer in a community may undo al=the work of the others. It is almost useless for a farmer to destroy a San Jose scale, cabbage butterflies and catterpillars if his neighbor allows the pests to have full sway. —The soft unpripened nubbins of corn will fatten a pig more quickly than the ripe ears will. So to boil the small potatoes with corn ears, and feed the thick mush thus resulting, when it is nearly cold, will fatten pigs quickly and cheaply. Pork may be made for two cents a pound in this way, after the pigs have run on a clover field. —If care is taken to select only good milk cows, and breed them to a sire whose ancestry show a good record in the dairy, you can depend upon the cows that come from such breeding being good dairy ani- mals. There is less risk of failure in this than in almost any other line of breeding. Proper care in selection will almost in- _ variably give satisfactory results. —A gardener who was very successful in winter with hot-house plants, in which he produced cucumbers, tomatos, peas, ete., under glass, gave as the secret of his suc- cess that he kept a hive of bees in the hot- house, and raised the temperature suffi- ciently to induce the bees to come out and fertilize the blossoms, which is an impor- tant matter in growing some kinds of vege- tables. —In order to keep up the vitality of the plant and to obtain a delicious and health- ful product, the rhubarb root should be re- planted occasienally. If the stool remains undisturbed for a number of years it be- gins to decay in the centre, and soon the whole plant becomes diseased. As the plant is propagated by division it can be kept in the healthiest condition by dividing the stool, and replanting the different por- tions. —Lima beans pay as a crop, and in esti- mating for next year a portion of the land should be set aside for that purpose. As there are now dwarf large Lima beans poles are being discarded. A crop of string beans may be grown between the rows un- til the Limas get well under growth, and the two crops may be cultivated by horse power. If the hills are mulched, the plants will escape drought should it pre- vail. —Every farmer who burns wood even partially for heating and cooking should as early in the winter as possible cut and pile enough wooed to last a whole year. This will save many complaints during the summer, and be much easier done now than in warm weather. Besides, dry wood burns without the waste of the heat, al- ways lost in turning its sap into steam. ‘When using green wood, chips and small limbs will dry out more quickly than will the body of the tree, especially if the small limbs are spilt. —LEnglish breeders carefully note at what age the steer shows the greatest gain, and for the largest profit feeds accordingly. In a test a calf was weaned at 12 days old and fed skimmed milk and linseed meal, and later on chopped roots, bran and hay, with cut grass in summer. He was weigh- ed every three months and it was found that when 2 years old he gave a profit, but after that he lost, which is quite mn ac- cordance with our experience in this coun- try, that steers are most profitably fed up to 18 to 24 months if fed liberally from the start. —=Soft corn is more often wastefully fed to hogs than put to the best uses it is cap- able of. It is moist, and when eaten easily ferments in the stomach of animals that do not ruminate, and especially of the hog which gets as a rule no coarse food to dis- tend its stomach and aid digestion. A few nubbins twice a day to cows giving milk will be digested nearly as well as will the grain when ground. The soft corn on the ear is with the cob brought up in the cud and is there most thoroughly chewed, while if corn meal is fed alone it goes di- rect to the third stomach, and is there very poorly digested. : —Those who grow clover should never fail to use lime or wood ashes. Lime is cheap, and there is no excuse for omitting it. Where wood ashes are difficult to ob- tain it is better to procure the potash salts. An advantage in wood ashes is that they contain both lime and potash, the lime being in an excellent form for application to the soil. Ashes contain phosphoric acid also, as phosphate. The clover will pro- vide the soil with nitrogen, hence clover and wood ashes will make any soil fertile if clover can be made to grow upon it. The use of ashes must depend upon their cost, however, but lime can be easily and cheap- ly obtained at all times. —An 80-pound lamb will bring more money than a full-grown sheep, provide it gets into the market early. Lambs which come in February and reach the market in July, requiring five months to weigh 80 pounds, are considered as having made good progress. If the lamb can be made to produce 80 pounds in four months, it is equivalent to having it come in January, or a month earlier. With the use of the mutton breeds such lambs can be produced in three months, thus gaining not only two months in earliness, but also in quality. This is important when it is taken into consideration than a gain of two weeks may double the price of the lamb. The Disappearance of our Forests. This is the time when the thoughtful man casts his eyes back over the year just ended, and, recognizing his faults and mis- takes, resolves to avoid them, if possible, a the coming year. And it would prove equally profitable if the community should indulge in a little wholesome retrospection. One of the glaring mistakes of the past year is the utter disregard of the average citizen for the preservation of our forests. It is said that ‘‘within two years one acre out of every nineteen in Pennsylvania has been rendered so worthless by our reckless man- agement of the woods that the owners have refused to pay taxes upon it’’ It is also claimed that ‘‘uncontrolled forest fires burn up year after year about one million dollars worth of property. and the poten- tial loss to the state by the destruction of young timber and of forest soil reaches a large sum which can hardly be estimated.’’ Here also is another unpleasant fact: ‘In six years prior to 1894 the valleys of the west branch of the Juniata alone lost by floods not less than one million dollars from the unrestrained freshets which had swept down from our treeless hills and mountain sides.” These are no fanciful statements, no figures of speech ; they are taken from the report of the State Forestry Commission, which shows that Pennsylva- nia’s forest area has been deplorably neg- lected and mismanaged. The same freshets that run to waste down the desolated hillsides bear with them quantities of what was once forest soil. This rich loam becomes mud in our drinking water ; and this, together with other more harmful ingredients, must be gotten rid of. The stripping of the soil from the fields does infinite harm ; but the destitution which must result may be stopped by a prompt recognition of the evil and a timely remedy. Public attention should take up the sub- ject, and the people should demand that reservations be set apart by the legislature atcertain points in the State where sup- plies of pure and wholesome water may be guaranteed by proper cares of the forests. Money appropriated for this purpose would not only benefit the present generation, but would prove of inestimable value to our children. There is a society of well known citizens, with headquarters at No. 1305 Arch street, the purpose of which is to keep up a ‘forestry crusade ;’ and it is now asking for assistance to carry on this good work. It would certainly be repre- hensible if the people of Pennsylvania should turn a deaf ear to the crying needs of the present year for adequate protection of fast-disappearing forests.—Philadelphia Record. Is It Overproduction ? Immediately after the election the great Massachusetts Fall River mills were started up with a whoop and hurrah. Gold-bug newspapers throughout the country printed the news with tremendous headliness, and commented upon it editorially as one of the most impressive evidences of the return of prosperity. To-day a few of them, a very few of the most honest of them, print briefly the news of the prospective closing of these same Fall River mills for lack of orders. Naturally they give no prom- inence to this bit of news, and prefer not to talk about it, but unpleasant though the facts may be, it is well to look them in the face. . Boston advices and comments upon the | situation printed in our news to-day show a lack of demand for the product of the mills, which is ascribed to overproduction. Before the election the closing down of mills and the general quiet in manufactur- ing was ascribed to either overproduction or lack of confidence, but now, with Mec- Kinley clected, of course, there can be no lack of confidence and so it must be over- production. That is a large and handy word, but it does not appear to mean very much ; for when we try to find what may be the limit of demand over and above which produc- tion has been carried, we discover that there is no such limit in sight ; that there is always a demand unsatisfied ; that there are plenty of people who want the products of those I"all River mills, for example, but have not the wherewithal to pay for it. | And these people in turn may then as truly | be said to be suffering from overproduc- tion, because the things they make, or sell in stores, or cultivate on farms, are not bought, although many want them who are unable to pay for them. This fine word ‘‘overproduction’ thus stands for nothing more than a general statement of the depressed state of business which we well know to exist. It does not explain it,” or give even a theory of its cause. It is, in fact, a false and mislead- ing word, for there is and can be no such thing as overproduction of anything s8 long as there are unsatisfied needs for that thing. Men are as eager to work and as eager to exchange the products of work as ever they were, and the trouble is with the money that forms the measure of the exchange of those products.—Lancaster Intelligencer. Finger Became a Noose. Novel Case of Flesh Grafting by Which a Woman's Organ of Smell Was Replaced. It is due to the skillful surgery of Dr. Joseph P. Tunis, of Philadelphia, that Mrs. John Edwards, of Chester has a nose like anybody else. The third finger is missing from Mrs. Edward’s right hand, but is now a part of her face, for it was grafted there to form a new nose for her.” Mrs. Edwards was admitted to the Methodist Episcopal hospital late in the fall to be treated for a cancerous growth. This ailment was checked, but it had left an unsightly blem- ish where the patient’s nose had been. Mrs. Edwards agreed when Dr. Tunis sug- gested the operation by means of which one of her fingers was to be made to take the place of her nose. The patient was etherized, and the opera- tion was begun. Dr. Tunis cut off the end joint of the third finger of her right hand, and disarticulated the remaining two bones. The hand was held in position over Mis. Edward’s face, and the boneless flesh was laid over the damaged nose and stitched to the face. Bandages of crinoline, spread with plaster of Paris, held the arm firmly in place. In three weeks the finger was firmly grafted to the face. It was then treated with a preparation of cocaine and was severed from the hand, and Mrs. Edwards has left the hospital with a new nose, hardly less perfect in form than her original one. ——J. Pierpont Morgan, the banker, is going to give the New York Lying-in hos- pital a building, costing $1,000,000. That will be one of the greatest charitable do- nations ever given by one individual. But then it should he remembered that other persons could do the same thing if they had made as much money as Mr. Morgan did out of government hond issues. That important fact should not be forgotten. High Art in Harrisburg. In the opinion of members of the House of Representatives art has reached the high- water mark in Harrisburg. Something like $70,000 has been expended in fitting up the hall where our representatives will gather. Mr. Crothers, of Philadelphia, in a somewhat pointed speech, has proclaimed the allegorical pictures which appear upon the walls to be indecent. He furthermore said that the hall looks more like a circus band wagon than the Assembly Chambers of legislators. He was not without sup- port. And yet in spite of these pungent criticisms the Representatives passed a resolution of thanksgiving for the ornate surroundings provided them. There is no doubt that the hall of the House of Representatives will attract much attention. It has been fitted up in the most lavish style. It may be said that high art has been invcked, for the ceiling is high, and there is a good deal of art work upon it. There is a tremendous ex- panse of red paint, broken with regular stripes of green and gold. All around the sides of this. Assembly Chamber are panel paintings representing consumptive Greeks in various styles of attire. Some of these men, women and children are clad in gor- geows costumes. Others are clad in no costumes at all. All of them look as though they might be benefited by a course in physical training. If appearances indi- cate anything most of them are suffering from diseases of one form or another, but they are all painted upon a magnificent and sparkling background of gold. If this hall were intended for a beer gar- den or a concert garden it might be praised but for a gathering place of sedate and dig- nified lawmakers it is wholly out of place. How any man with a true idea of art could vote for a resolution of congratulations is entirely beyond comprehension. The dec- orations of such a chamber should be digni- fied and sombre. Had the mahogany pan- el scheme which the effervescent major De- laney provided as the lower tier of decora- tions been carried throughout the hall would have been less like a circus tent. But those who have had the fitting up of this wonderful place have given us tinsel and high colors and impossible human fig- ures, and have made the Assembly room of the Pennsylvania Legislature a reproach upon even the most ordinary sense of art. The members of the House may organize themselves into a beer garden before B session is over, but they ought not to be led into excesses by concert garden sur- roundings.— Inquirer. He Wanted Fiction. How an Agent For a Real Estate Firm Tackled Mrs. Ella W. Peattie. One of the short stories included in Mrs. Ella W. Peattie’s recent book, ‘‘A Moun- tain Woman,” is called ‘‘Jim Lancy’s Waterloo.” It was originally printed in Harper's and created quite a stir through- out the west because of the faithfulness with which it depicted the hardships of farm life in certain sections of Nebraska. Immediately after the story appeared Mrs. Peattie received a storm of protests from land agents and real estate dealers, who swore that she had done the state of Nebraska irreparable injury. One immi- gration company believed it would be a good idea to get another story from Mrs. Peattie’s pen to offset the damaging effects of the first. Itsent one of its agents to her. The real estate man explained that his company owned a large tract of land which it wanted to place on the market and wanted to know whether Mrs. Peattie would write & pamphlet booming the en- terprise. “Why, sir, I am afraid you don’t un- derstand the sort of literary work I do,” protested the writer. ‘I do not write pamphlets and commercial work for adver- tising purposes. I write nothing but fic- tion.” The agent drew closer, cleared his throat with an apologetic cough and re- marked confidentially : “That's it, mum. Tlfat’s what we want—fiction. We don’t want any more facts.”’—Chicago Times- Herald. The New Mint Building. The drawings of the new mint building, at Philadelphia, have been nearly com- pleted and will soon be made public. It is proposed to erect a substantial structure of granite three stories high above the base- ment. The entrance will be on Spring Garden street, the widest street in Phila- delphia, and will be of an attractive and imposing design. Plans will be made for setting the heavy machinery in the base- ment, but the lighter machinery and the clerical offices will be in the upper stories. The building will be in the form of a hol- low rectangle, with a spacious court in the center. There will also be ample parking on all four sides fronting Spring Garden, Sixteenth, Buttonwood and Seventeenth streets. Fines for Wearing Theatre Hats. Women to Pay $3 Each for Persistently Offend- ing. The ordinance passed recently by the city council, Chic2zo prohibiting the wear- ing of hats in the theatres and amusement houses during the performance went into effect Saturday. The penalty is directed against the woman who persists in wearing a hat at the theatre, making her liable to a fine of $3. Dragged a Mile by a Runaway. Driver's Ear Gone and Cheek and Shoulder Scraped Bare. On Saturday near Williamsport a team driven by John Borgeson ran away, drag- ging him for nearly a mile over the frozen ground. His feet were entangled in the reins, and when the runaway was stopped it was found that Borgeson’s right ear had been scraped off and his cheek and should- ers worn to the bone. —Spring is a better time to set trees than fall, because at that season, trees ase beginning to grow and will therefore, be in a condition to respond more readily to treatment, while in fall they are®unlikely to establish themselves before cold weather sets in. Preserve the roots to the fullest extent, and do not disturb the tree until after it has ripened and has shed its foli- age. If the roots are cut away as they are almost invariably are in spring planting, be sure to cut back the top proportionately. remem — ——I should think it would irritate you, Dr. Pounder, to see members of your congregation falling to sleep during your sermon.”’ “Not at all, madam,’ replied the preach- er; ‘‘on the contrary, it delights me.

First Portfolio Placed—Responsible Post to Round Out a Long and Brilliant Congressional Career— Hanna Goes to the Senate—General Alger Strong- ly Hinted at as the Next Secretary of War. WASHINGTON, Jan. 13th.—Positive an- nouncement was made to-night that Presi- dent McKinley had tendered the state portfolio to Senator John Sherman, of Ohio, and that the distinguished Buckeye states- man has accepted and will be the premier of the incoming administration. Speculation as to who would be the Ohio member in the cabinet of the president- elect has persistently hovered about the names of Senator Sherman and Mark Hanna, the chairman of the national com- mittee, the former being mentioned in con- nection with the state and treasury portfo- lois, and the latter in connection with the head of the treasury and postoffice depart- ments. It has been known for some time, however, that Mr. Hanna’s ambitlon was a seat in the United States senate. The retirement of the Ohio veteran senator to ac- cept the position of premier in Mr. McKin- ley’s cabinet will probably open the way to a gratification of the ambition. Mr. Sher- man’s term as senator would expire two years hence, March 4th, 1899. The vacancy created by Mr. Sherman’s retirement will be filled by appointment by Governor Bushnell pending the assem-. bling of the Ohio legislature in January, 1898. It is understood that the old war in Ohio between the Sherman and Foraker factions has ceased, and that complete har- mony has been restored among the leaders. This carries with it the stromg implication that Governor Bushnell will appoint Mr. Hanna to the vacancy in the senate when Mr. Sherman steps out to assume the grave responsibilities connected with the head of the department of state. Senator Sherman declines to make any statement relative to the important an- nouncement made to-night, but this in no wise militates against its authenticity. The definite announcement that Mr. Mc- Kinley has selected the keystone of the arch upon which his administration will rest recalls the fact that it was Mr. Cleve- land’s selection of Judge Walter Q. Gres- ham for secretary of state of the present administration which was first given to the public. As secretary of state Mr. Sherman will round out a brilliant public career which began 42 years ago in the house of repre- sentatives, and bring to that exalted post a ripe experience which covered four terms in the lower branch of congress and six | terms in the upper house, besides four years | at the head of the treasury department un- der Mr. Hayes’s administration. It 1s significent, in connection with the knowledge that Mr. Sherman will be Secre- tary of state, that General T. A. Alger, of Michigan, while here a few days ago, had a conference with the Ohio senator, at which, it is understood, all their past dif- ferences were adjusted and reconciled. This strengthens the belief that General Alger is also to be a member of Mr. Mc- Kinley’s cabinet, the post he is to fill being that of secretary of war. Reports, how- ever, also persistently associate the name of Senator Hawley, of Connecticut, with this portfolio. As the fact that Senator Sherman was to be. secretory of state was not generally | known in Washington to-night, it occa- | sioned no gossip or comment.
