tionuui'ss resist tlio inroails of boll:
mlco nml rnU Tho itlnn of construo-
tion it will bo best to give in tho cor
respondents own words i "It is always
butter to set rt crib nbout two feet off
tho ground, on Hosts or stones, as mnv
bo desired, so that tho air can pass free
ly under it. Lay tho floor of hemlock
or poplar or yellow pine, the planks
lour or live, or even six inches wide,
and let them bo laid at least one Inch
apart, so mat tlio air can pass up
through the corn. Cover tho floor
with woven wire, with meshes that the
mlco can't pass through. Poplar will
bo good enough for thu slats (plno rots
too quickly.) Put them on, say, otto
inch apart) then nail on tho imide of
the studding woven wire, sufllcicnUy
strong to resist tho pressure of tho
corn, and with nicshes of a sizo that a
mouso can't pass through. Then nail
n woven wire to the cross pieces over
head. This wire cloth need not bo
made of heavy wire i neither should
that which is laid on tho floor. This
kind of a crib will be rat and mouse
proof, am let in inoro air than any
other kind that I know of."
Wo think that farmers cenerallv
will unite in approving of the utility of
this crib ; ami also in tho tact that if
tho first cost will bo moro than tho
ordinary cribs, ,somo of which arc not a
complete protection against these de
structive pests, it will be tho cheapest
in mo end.
Cost of Keeping Sheep-
Tho cost of keeping sheep is not
great, says a coirespouuont of tho
American Cultivator, a9 a half dozen
sheep will live where one cow could
find enough, and as they eat coarser
food than tho cow they would subsist
in many pastures whoro cows would
starve. If it is desired to fatten old
sheep, or forco early lambs for market.
few roots and a littlo gram will do it
easily. It is estimated that a sheep
will thrive well upon per cent, of
its weight of good hay daily during
tue winter. Thus a sheep of 100
pounds weight will need in five months
about 500 pounds of hay. If grain or
iww uu given, poorer nay or siraw
may bo used, keeping the cxpenso
about tho same. Such a sheep should
shear from five to six pounds of wool
and raiso at least ono good lamb. Lar
ger averages of wool aro not uncom
mon, and it is not uncommon for many
intelligent breeders who rear imported
shoep to have their flocks average
three lambs to each two shoep, ono
half thu flock having two lambs each.
j JSome of tho more conspicuous flow
ering trees, which give bloom from
early spring to lato autumn, white, yel
low and red, in different localities, high
and low, are tho cercis, or red bud, and
shadbush (arohia), which bloom very
early ; tbo former red, in March, and
tho latter white, in April, but both
showing blossoms before foliage. Then
comes the dogwood (cornus), largo
white blossoms, in March and April.
Then magnolias and tulip tree (lirio
dendron), both fragrant and showy;
but there are none among the hundreds
whioh present a more gorgeous and
beautiful spectacl than our common
crab apple tree (pyrus coronaria) when
clothed in its full bloom of rich red and
white blossoms in May; it is very at
tractive to bees. The thorn trees and
black haws aw very hand-min ; nil of
these like rich, lowlands. Bisswood
(iiIIh) gives pretty, fragrant blossoms,
yellow or buff color, rich in honey and
much liked by bees, from which they
make much excellent honey. Among
the haudsorae and curious flowering
trees, we must notico the showy fringe
ti-eo or flowering ash (chionanthtis)
found in this region, giving its white
spray like blossoms in March or April.

,Tho suggestion cannot be to fre
quently offered to farmers as to tho ex
pediency and profitableness of raising
more poultry at least, twice as much
as they are now doing. Tbo business,
if properly conducted, would become
ono of tho most lucrativo branches
upon the farm, especially when within
easy reaching business of the Philadel
phia or other good markets. It ought
to bo known to all American farmers
the extent to which the business is pro
secuted in France, where, from a care
ful estimate,, it is lound that tho an
nual sales of poultry and eggs last year
amounted to between eighty and nino
ty millions of dollars, which would, if
equally divided among tho entire popu
lation, give to each between, two and
three dollars. When it is considered
that this is a branch of farming indus
try that can be managed entirely by
women and children, and requires very
littlo capital, the wonder is that it is
not prosecuted to twice tho extent it is.
Tho chicken houses should bo inex
pensive, but roomy, well ventilated and
cleanly. Eyery part of tho food can
bo supplied by the offals of tho farm,
garden and house, and the time requir
ed need not bo taken from tho neces
sary working of tho farm, and would
really not bo felt ns a part of tho farm
labor. Besides, thero would bo an
absolute pleasure in raising fowls of
every kind, oven pigeons, the squabs
of whioh sell nt tho very high prfco of
from forty to fifty cents per brace. As
to tho disposal of poultry in tho mar
kets, who has ever known of a surplus
or of its being sacrificed for want of
customers t It is true that upon very
largo farms poultry raising is looked
upon as being in tho way and not
wprt.li the trouble j but as a rule it is
only upon suoh farms, and but a small
portion of them where this really pleas
ant pastimo is not enjoyed and the pro
ducts of it quietly and cheerfully tint
in tho pockets of 'tho mother and child
ren,. whecu it will bo ever ready to
meet tho tinny necessary and indispen

There was something about tho slur

challenges the admiration of every man

thoso things and laid the foundations
of a land whoso blessings wo now en
joy. Their constitutions wcro strongi
their health unsurpassed and yet they
wcro forced to exposo themselves con
tinnallv. There certainly must havo
been somo good nud adequate cause fo
all this aud fur tho physical superiority
of that ago over tho present.
It is well known to every one con
vcrsant with tho history of that time
that certain home compounds of
strengthening qualities wero used al
most univoi sally by thoso pioneers,
Tho malarial evils and exposures to
which they wero subjected necessitated
mis. yiicii mcir uouies oecoinu unw
ed by cold or debilitated by the daui;
mists of a new country thoy were
forced to counteract it by tho uso of
antidotes. Medicines wero few in thoso
days, and doctors almost unknown.
IIouco the preparations above referred
to. From among tho number, all of
which were compounded upon thosamo
general principle, one was found to bo
moro cllloiout and hetico far more pop
ular than all tho rest. It was well
known through tho middle and western
states and was acknowledged as tho
best preparation for malarial disor
ders and general debility then known.
Tho recine for comnonndintr this valua
ble article was handed down from ono
family and generation to another, was
known to the Harrison family and is
used as the basis and general formula
for tho present "Tippecanoe," tho name
being suggested by tbo battle in which
General Harrison was engaged. Tho
manufacturers have thoroughly invest!
gated this subject iu its minutest de
tails, and are certain that for mal as
similation of food, dyspepsia, tired feel
ings, general debility, prostrations, ma
larial disorders and humors in the
blood, nothing can exceed in value
"Tippecanoe," which was the medicine
of our forefathers and seems destined
to be the most popular prcpration of
"Tippecanoe" is prepared and given
to tho public by Messrs. II. H. W arner
os uo., of Kocliostcr, IS. 1., proprietors
of tho famous Warner's Safe Cure,
which is now the most extensively used
of any American medicine. The well
known standing of this house is a suffi
cient guarantee of the purity and pow
er of this preparation which seeks to
banish one of the greatest banes of tho
nineteenth century mal-assimilation
of food. Any one who experiences
trouble of digestion ; who feels lens
vigor than formerly ; whose system has
unquestionably "run down" and who re
alizes the necessity of some strengtb
eningtonio cannot afford to permit such
symptoms to continue If the farmer
tinds that his threshing machine does
not separate the grain from tho straw
ho realizes that something is wrong
arid tries to repair tho machine. When
tho food does not sustain tho life; when
it fails to make blood ; when it causes
thu energy to depart and ambition to
die, it is a rertaiu sign that something
is wrong and that the human machine
needs repauiug. It is not a question of
choice ; it is a matter of duty. You
n. list utteud to your health or your
sickness and nothing will sooner over
come these evils than "Tippecanoe,"
the medicine of tho past a, safe guard
for the present aud a guarantee of
health for the future.

News is Property.
A bill will soon be submitted to Con
gress in which overy self sustaining
aud self-respecting newspaper In tho
land is deeply interested! Tho meas
ure, which wo believe has been prepar
ed by tho Hon. Henry Watterson, will
recognize, for thu flrsttlmo the fact that
news is proporly, and that tho owners
of property in nows aro entitled to tho
protection ot tho law.
Nows is sought, bought, sold and
stolen. It is sought in every part of
tho world, frequently at enormous cost
and through complex organizations re
quiring thuinvestmcntof largo amounts
of capital. Brains aud money are
freely expended in procuring nows. It
Is bought for cash. 11 is sold tor cash.
Tho ownership passes from the seller
to tho purchaser precisely as in tho
case of other things having market
valuo. It is not only property, just as
tho white paper, the ink, the type, nnd
the presses of the newspaper establish
incut aro property, but it is also, in (.lie
sense, tho most valuable property of
all. Tbo nowspaper exists only to
publish it, Tho whlto paper carries
it from tho presses to the renders
only becauso it is in Itself a thing of
But while the owner of a copyright
ed work of fiction, or of a copyrighted
photograph, or map or chroma or pleco

mercy of thieves tho moment that tho
first published copy of his journal
roaches tho market. Hundreds of pi
ratical sheets havo existed and still
oxlst in tho great cities solely because
thero is no law to punish their dishon
est proprietors for preying upon tho
newspapers wmcn pay tneir own way.
Tho products of enterprise, persever
ance, intellectual effort, and liberal ex
penditure of money, aro seized by pi
rates and sold to the public contem
poraneously and in direct competition
with the wares of tho real owner.
Whilo it is a crimo to steal n single
copy of tho nowspaper itself, worth
in tho market two or three or five
cents, it is no crime,- as thu law stands,
to steal that which gives valuo to
every one of fifty ora hundred thousand
copies of that nowspaper.
Tho bill in question copyrighting
nows for twenty-four hours, is aimed
at the sneak thieves, and only the
sneak thieves can object to it. It com-'
mends itself to every honest man who
believes that tho products of skilled
labor and merchandise bought and
paid for aro entitled toenjoy protection,
not against fair competition but against
dishonest misappropriation Tho bill
is in tho interest of tho public, for it
protects and strengthens thu agencies
ou which tho public depends for the
collection and publication of intelli

Pruning Old Trees
The best way is, first, to cut out ail
the dead limbs, leaving no stubs, but
smooth surfaces on the matn stem or
branches, avoiding any larger cut sur
faces than practicable. If this treat
ment does not leave tho tree in good
shape, or it Bomo branches are too long,
and the tops are not symmetrical, cut
back the long branches to a fork, so
that there may be no projecting stubs,
and so that tho shorter of the two
branches at the fork shall remain. This
.work, if carefully performed, will
enablo you to bring all the limbs into
' proper length to .make good tops.
This work mav bo done lato in winter
or early spring, but never whilo tho
trees are, growing or are loaded with
foliage. Then cover all tho wounds
with paint, grafting-wax, or other sub
stance or composition to make a water
tight coating, it iu addition to this
treatment, the whole surface of the
ground could bo covered with old
straw as. a, mulch, and a light top-dressing
of coarse manure could be applied,
(ho trees would probably renew their
Vigor. It should always, be borne in
fnind, in pruning any. old trees, to re
serve the young and vigorous shoots,"
and remove tho old and feeblo ones,
whenever a choice is to be made be
tween them. Country Gentleman.
How to Measure Fields
An exchange says that few farmers
know the mze'of their fields or how
many acres they contain, and then ex
plains how they may be informed in
the matter. A measuring cord should
bo part of the furniture on, tho farm.
To make one, procure 77 feet ofetrong
rope, one inch around ; mako a loop or
fasten a' ring or bar at each end, aud
mako; these exactly GG feet apart. This
is four rods., Then tie a piece of red
rag in the' centre. One aero of ground
will bo a piece four of the cords (chains)
long, and two nnd one-half wide, equal
to 10 by 10 rods, making 1 GO square
rods to ono acre. The ad vantage, of
the ring or loop is that 'one person can
measure alone by driving a stake in
tho groutid to bold the rope whilo he
stretches it out. The ropes should bo
soaked in tar and dried, which will
prevent it from shrinking when wet.
Keep Your Cows Warm. -To show
how cold weather effects cows an in
telligent dairy farmer mentions a case
where a herd of cows, which had us
ually been supplied from troughs aud
pipes in tho stalls, were, on account of
an obstruction in the pipes, obliged to
bo turned out twice a day, whilo tho
weather was cold, to be watered in tho
yard. Tbo quantity of milk instantly
decreased, and in three (lays the falling
off becamo very considerable. After
the pipes wero mended, and the cows
again watered as before In their stalls
tho flow of milk relumed. Cows when
giving milk are moro sensitive to the
cold than when they are dry, and ex
posure to severe cold interferes with
the secretion of milk.

of an excellent production, is to under-
