Stable Floors and Every Effort Should
Be Made to Install Them.
(T3y C. A. O'COCK.)
The average dairyman of 20 years
ego gave the sanitary floor or stall
little consideration in the construction
of his cow stables, and used any meth
od of building which best suited his !
individual ideas. He cared little about j
the condition of the cow at milking
time so long as she gave the milk.
The most of the old dairy barns are j
to arranged that it is impossible to j
keep cows clean in them.
The floors now commonly found are
dirt, wood, either block or plank, brick,
stone, and in some cases concrete.
Dirt of course is very undesirable
since it affords an excellent harbor
lor bacteria, insects and vermin. In
order to maintain a sanitary stable
such floors must be eliminated. Wood
en floors are about as undesirable aa
those made of dirt, but when care is
exerted may be so constructed as to
be fairly satisfactory.
Brick or concrete are the only
floors one can safely say are sanitary.
15rick should be laid upon a good sub
base and if this is not a good firm
foundation it should be well tamped
before laying the brick. The brick
floor having been completed, the

Four Types of Gutters in Common Use.
The form most generally used is
cept that the latter is shallower and
used because of the greater depth of

cracks should be filled with a mixture
of cement and sand. The proportion
which will best fill the requirements
is 1 part cement to l 1 part of good
clean sand. This should be mixed thin
enough to spread easily and then
swept Into the cracks with a heavy
barn broom or steel brush. Such a
iloor will be found very sanitary and
not so slippery as concrete. For drive
ways where loads are to be drawn or
where horses are to stand, a better |
grade of brick will be required.
Concrete Is the best and most sani j
tar/ floor that can be used in a dairy
barn and effort should be made to ]
have such floors installed whenever j
a barn is being constructed. They
Bhould be laid upon good foundations
and finished with grooves to prevent
the animal slipping upon them. The j
stalls should be provided with mats |
of lumber no placed that they may be
frequently removed for cleansing. All
parts of the stalls which are made of
wood, should be removable so that
they may be readily replaced when
worn out.

In making a concrete floor be sure
that a substantial sub-base is secured.
l ! pon this spread three inches of mixed
concrete, consisting of one part ce
ment, 214 parts clean, coarse sand,
! and 5 parts broken stone or clean
1 gravel spread in one continuous layer,
j Unless there is to be excessive wear
no finishing coat is needed. If such
a coat seems desirable in the drive
! ways it should be mixed 1 part ce
ment and 2 parts sand. The finished
coat should be about three-fourths
of an inch thick and laid off in 4-inch
squares, the grooves about one-fourth
inch deep. Finish a floor in this way
and horses pulling a load will not
slip and fall.
Stall mats should bo constructed of
seven-eighths inch lumber and so
placed in the stall that they may bo
removed frequently to facilitate in
cleansing the stall, since it is quite
evident there will be a small amount
of filth collecting from time to time,
thus poluting the sanitary condition of
the stall.
In the illustration four designs of
gutters are shown. The fall of a gut
ter should be about one inch in 50
feet, but this may vary to meet con-
shown at A which is similar to B, ex
wider. C and D are less generally
C near the stall and the sharp angle
ditions. If a cistern is used for re
taining the liquid manure it may be
desirable to have more fall.
The liquid manure cistern should be
so situated as to permit of as few
angles as possible In the pipes lead
ing from the gutters. Traps should
be so constructed where the pipes
have their beginning In the gutters
as to permit, of quick cleaning. Open
ings should be provided in the floor
at each bend of the pipes. !n this
way little difficulty would be experi
enced in keeping the drains free.
Valuable Crops.
Carrots and mangel-wurzels, or
mangolds, are two neglected crops
that are valuable and easily grown.
Either of them produces heavily on
good corn land and makes excellent
winter feed for all kinds of live stock
and poultry. Carrots are especially
gccd for cows and horses, while a few
mangolds for cows, sheep and pigs
promote health and growth. For poul

Parishioner's Remark, However, Left
Young Minister Somewhat In
In the Dark.
Rev. Henry R. Rose In the Newark
Star tells the story of a young min
ister who had recently taken charge
of a small parish in Vermont. He
aspired to greater things and a large
field, and in the hope that his reputa
tion would travel beyond the limits of
the village to which he had been sent
bo threw into his sermons all the
force and eloquence at his command.
Ho was, however, totally unprepared
for what wag intended for a compli
ment, but which whs put to him in
such a way that it left him in doubt
a~ to the real impression he had made.
One Sunday morning, after an espe
cially brilliant effort, he was greeted
by an old lady, who was one of the
most faithful attendants at all serv
ices. Approaching the young minister,
she said: "Ah, sir, we do enjoy your
sermons so much, they are so in
structive. Do you believe it, we never
knew what sin was until you came to
the parish."
Green—Does he much. m
Wise —No; he's one of those poli
ticians who use five-syllable words to

His Ruling Passion.
The young man waited for the mill
ionaire's reply.
"I don't blame you for wanting to
marry my daughter," said the latter.
"And now how much do you suppose
you and she can worry along on?"
The youth brightened up.
"I —I think," he cheerfully stam
mered, "that $200,000 well Invested,
would produce a sufficient income."
The millionaire turned back to his
"Very well," he said, "I will give
you SIOO,OOO, providing you raise a
similar amount."
And the young man went away sor

A pretty.story of Miss Ellen Terry
and a gallant young playwright has
gone the rounds of the Players' club.
Miss Terry attended in New York
the first night of this playwright's

third act he was presented to her.
She congratulated him warmly.
"It is very good," she said. "Your
play is very good, Indeed, and I shall
send all my American friends to see
"In that case," said the playwright,
with a very low and courtly bow, "my
little piece will sell 90,000,000 tickets."

"Honest John" Kelly Proved His Right
to the Title Long Before
There have been many stories about
the manner in which "Honest John"
Kelly, the ex-umpire, first got his nick
name. Mr. Kelly himself, according
to a York !ct f rr. holds that it
came to him naturally, for even as a
small boy the purity of his soul shone
through his face. "I think the first
time I was ever called 'Honest John'
was when I was quite a youngster,"
said Kelly. "A man engaged as an
ambulatory salesman of tinware ob
served the ingenious countenance I
presented to the world and hailed me.

'Then hold my horse while I go In
the saloon and get a drink,' said he.
And so I held his horse while he went
in the saloon and got a drink. But
this was on lower Ninth avenue, in a
day when the avenue's honors went
to the man who fcould clean the most
cops in a given time. By and by the
gang came along and beheld that
wagon full of tinware. The peddler
was detained within by a sore thirst,
and they took the tinware. And then
they came back and took the cush
ions off the wagon. Eventually, be
coming daring, they unhitched the
wagon and took it away. True to my
trust, I stood there, holding the horse.
And by and by the peddler came out
Q. Do you U3© Postum or Crapo-Nuts your

A. Yes. I uso them at home.
Q. If from your knowledge of the factory
which you have gained In your ten years at
the factory you believed that they were dirty
or Impure in any way. would you use them?
A. 1 do not think I would. No.
Asked If any one on behalf of the Company
had asked him to testify in any particular
manner. Stated "No."
All these sworn ilejwsitlons wero carefully
eicluded from tho testimony at the trial, for
they wouldn't sound well for tho "Weekly."
Think of the fact that every man swore to
the purity and cleanliness so that the Atty.
for tho "Weekly" was forced to say in open
court that the food was pure and good.
What a disappointment for tho "Weekly!"

On the steeple of an old Universal

wooden figure of an angel. It is not
a remarkably fine specimen of art, and
has always been somewhat laughed
about, especially because of its high
heeled shoes. The Bath Enquirer re
calls the story that a former pastor of
the North Congregational church oncft
accosted a devoted Universalist with
the question: "Mr. Raymond, did you
ever see an angel with high-heeled
shoes on its feet?" "Why, no," an
swered Mr. Raymond, "I can't say thai
I ever did; but did you ever see oni
without them?"
