Mistakes in cultivation are made in not

HINTS OS SHOEING.
Do not let horses' shoes remain over
three to six weeks, dependent on the
amount of use aud the toughness and growth
of the hools. Each time after taking off
the shoes, if the road permits let him go
bart'fiHtted as long as no injury followed,
as this expands the hoofs and keeps them
in more perfect condition. Some horses
can be used barefoot, off pavements, for
months, or the whole year round, aud work
better than if shod. Never allow the frog
of the foot to be cut or trimmed, unless
somewhat ragged and then only a very lit
tle, as it acts as a cushion to the foot and
lessens or even preveuts bruising when
striking a stone or other hard substance.
See that the hoof is not pared beyond ap
solute necessity, aud that the shoe is prop
erty fitted to it, and not the hoof to the
shoe. Do not allow the bottom of the hoof
to be burnt or even scorched with a hot
shoe, in order to make it set evenly, but
pare it properly to do so. Always use the
lightest shoes compatible with the condi
tion of the roads aud the work required of
MISCHIEF MAKERS IN MILK.
According to Prof. Vaughan, tyrotoxicon
does not develop below GO- 1 Fabr., and is
anaerobie—grows where air is excluded.
Some very simple measures, then, are pre
1. Scrupulous cleanliness. A little dry
milk on the rim of a can or vessel may
breed the germ which will find a culture
ground in fresh milk.
2. A low temperature—below 60
3. Ventilation in an untainted atmos
It is but just to say that these precau
tions are generally observed by careful
dairymen aud cream manufacturers. There
is grave reason to fear, however, that they
are not generally observed after the milk
reaches the consumer's hand. Also, the
slightest carelessness may affect seriously
that class of the community which does
not speak for itself—the very youugest.
Statistics prove with increasing testimo
ny that all artificial feeding is not only uu
natural but hazardous, aud to be success
ful requires the most intelligent attention.
However, if all mothers and nurses could
learn that milk exposed to foul or warm air
for any length of time may not only sour,
but become the vehicle of a virulent poison,
perhaps the suuimor mouths would bear a
better health record.
One woid ot warning may not be amiss.
Whenever a young child is fed upon cow's
milk, and this causes symptoms of disa
greement, the diet should be changed at
once either to meat or rice; for, if the chief
mischief-maker be at work, the best milk
will only furnish it with the medium i,n
which it nourishes, and deprived of this, it
will inevitably perish.

Strange Evidence in Court.
lit ft San Fraiui-4-.i r.mrt recently a
couple who had lived ft- man and wife
were making bitter charges against each ;
other. 011 account of a recent quarrel. 'I he |

and he said: "I'll te t it. madam." and

Then en ued a most touching scene. The
little girl, without .1 word, climbed from
her chair, knelt 011 the lloor ol the court
room, with the policemen, -poctators, judi'e
and her fat her and mother around her, and,
folding her tiny hands and lifting her eyes
to heaven, she made the grandest defense
of a mother's word possible. Slowly, but
distinctly, and without a tremor in her
voice, the innocent little darling, born
with the stain of shame upon her and dis
carded by her father, lisped in childish ac
cents the Lord's Prayer.
As she proceeded, utterly oblivious to
her surroundings, .she uttered that prayer
which many in the room had not heard for
year.;, strong men bowed their heads and
sobbed aloud. Finishing her prayer she
added: "God bless papa and mamma and

Senator Hampton's Story to the
Washington letter to Columbus, Ohio,
Senator Wade Hampton is a good story
teller. As far as is known he is tip to this
time the only man who has had the temer
iity to tell the President an impious tale,
and Gen. Harrison was much pleased with
the narrative. "I always did like army sto
ries," ho said, "and you can't expect army
stories to be pood enough to tell a Sunday
school class. 1 forgave the profanity ol
Senator Hampton's story out of considera
tion for its wit."
The story Senator Hampton told was an
army story —not particularly new and fresh,
but new to the President.
' One day during the war." said the Sen
ator. "the colonel of a South Carolina reg
iment was making a round of inspection.
Sitting lazily on a rail fence whittling at a
piece of shingle he found a man whose face
was not familiar to him. The colonel was
indignant. Approaching the loafer he call
ed out to him with all proper severity:
■Who the are you. sitting here in this
fashion?' 'I, sir,' responded the man on the
fence, continuing his whittling, am the
chaplain of the st Regiment. Xow,
who in are you?' "
A Big Purchase by Pennsyl
The famous Etowah property, in Bar
stow county, Ga., containing 17,000 acres
mineral land, has been purchased by Gen
eral Granger, of Philadelphia, representing
a Pennsylvania company, for $190,000. Of
the purchase money $5,000 was paid in At
lanta Saturday last, and $15,000 more is to
be paid on the 15th of the present month.
It is understood the property has been pur
chased for the Bethlehem Iron Works Com
pany, of the famous Lehigh Valley. The
purchasers will begin by mining iron and
manganese ore on a large scale and ship
ping; it to Pennsylvania. When, in this
way, the quality and availability of the ore
is practically demonstrated thev will build
a series of furnaces on the property, and
probably also a manganese furnace and
rolling mills. The Atlanta Constitution
says the iron ore on the purchase has for
years been recognized as the finest in
America, and but for the civil war the
Colts would have established their famous
armory on this property.

bave been.selling. On the f.th we opened the largest stock we had ever
brought to Butler. On the 20th our shelves were as bare as Mother Hub
bard's celebrated cupboard, and necessitated an eutire re stocking at once. :
To-morrow we open the fresh lot. and there is nothing of the showman's I
talk about in our warning you to come at once; it is the truth, from the way
our goods are selling. hether we sell because of cheapness, or quality of
good.-; whether because of the quantity to select from or thfl knowing how
to-suit customers: whether from any or all of them, is for your eyes and
judgment to decide —that we do the business is not doubted.
