Getting Beady For Winter,
A writer in one of our exchanges
thoughtfully offers the following
suggestions on the work of preparing
fuel for winter. "He says a good
commodious wood house is one of
the indispensibles on every'farm, and
ifyou, ruder, have hot one on vour
place, by all means put one up soon,
and thus enable your - wife to use dry
wood, thereby saving - both of you a
- vast amount of trouble and bad tem
per for we have seerka farmer's wife
lose her temper when she had to use ,
wet, soggy wood, when almost all
e i r
other trials f led to stir up her com
bativeness. inter is the time when
the woodho se should be stored with
wood enough to last--all the spring
and summer months, all cat into
suitable 'lengths and made - conve
niently tine, and piled up neatly.
Ily -having the wood cut darin;i,
winter, it will have - dried % out by
summer and thus afford pleasant sum-
mer wood, the opposite being the
case ,if green, or only partly seasoned
wood is cut just when wanted all
through the year. Let all hands
work at-the wood pile , till it , is full,
for many hands make light work.
If you have ti horse power on the
place, get a circular saw and bench
and rig up a machine in which you
can in a few days, cut enough to
kip you splitting a couple of weeks.
The knots and pieces hard to split
can be piled 'away until pig killing,
to be used in heating the kettles of
water tlEed for scalding purposes.
CLEAN Yomt W4xn.The season
of sheap shearing is at hand, and to
,know hew best to prepare wool for
:the market is what .many sheap rais
ers have to learn. Each may think
his way the best, and whether it is
or not, if the buyer cannot be made
to think so, it is otlittle avail. A
deco of. wool should be in such a coin
that it may be unrolled or
spread out like a piece , of cloth for
examination. It should go to market
clean and White and well tied up,
showing no tears or ragged edges.
A ditt3•, .carelessly-handled lot of
wool can never be made to bring
what it Would sell for if care and
skill were exercised in its.preparation
for the market. There has been a
tendency in the past tofind some ex
•cuse for sending wool to market in
an uncleaned state, but we think the
Mistake has been discovered, and the
wool crop - is beginning to receive.the
—ittention that it did - thirty • years
ago. Give your wool- the greatest
attention ;. if you - expect the best
offers, see that it is cleaned from all
dirt by washing; either on the sheep's
back or after shearing, and every
fleece put, up in good style. When
this is done, the full value of the
article will be'paid you by the pur
:- chal e r,.and no discount.
SAVIN(I Hot:SE SLOrSiL.-- These
should `all be saved. To save them
_have a number of barrels, boxes, or
hogsheads or half. hogsheads filled
with earth—dry' muck, or other ab
sorbing•substane ,e upon • which the
slops are to be eknptied from day to
days until the w'liole mass is thOr
` oughly saturated. It is then ready
for use foi , any fertilizing purpose.
If it is not convenient to use barrels,
boxes, etc.', some ' place properly
sheltered may be easily arranged with
flooring,.upon which is pladed a large
viantity of earth or muck, upon
• which the slops are throwil, and this
plareposseses tide advantage that it
can be easily worked- over and so
rendered in excellent condition for
use. Every farmer having tried this
experiment will be surprised at the
arnount_of material of value that can
• thus be accumulated. Nor have we
fully calculated fdr the slops made
on wash day, which are rich in kr
. tilizing material. It -is attention-to
sueh t matterS that increases the fer
tility of the farm and enlarges the
To STOP ILUSAIVAY HORSES.—The .
Mexicans have a method of subduing
fractious horse and s►ich as are in
clined to run away, which might be
introduced with profit here. A hood
or winker is so arranged. that the
driver or rider can in an instant
qraw it directly over the eyes of the
animal. effectually blindfolding him..
Wlienerer this is done the horse in
stsntly becomes - quiet, and a repetl:
tion of blindfolding two or three
times, gradually results in his be-
coming quiet and docile.. Such ,an
- arrangement would be a 'valuable ap
i.perklage to the head-gear of horses
disposed to run away.

a dozen cars of green sweet torn and
