or about 73 per cent., were divided be
tween Knclish prose fiction and Juvenile
litirature. Chicago, observes the Record-Herald,
resembles other American
communities In Its preference for works
! of this class, and the taste that is thus
shown Is often ihe subject of regret
among people with whom tbe study of
literature is a somewhat serious busi
ness. In one sense this regret is well
founded, because a large percentage of
the fiction that is read Is of an Inferior
sort. The time that Is spent upon it
might be devoted much more profitably
to better reading or to healthful recrea
tion out of . oors, and there is perhaps
no mere ci . tnon fallacy than that con
taint d in th.- rotlon that there Is a virtue
in devourir? ' tioks, even If the stand
ard of 6f . a is poor. This itself is
one of th ;..jst misleading of fictions,
;one i -. - ( .
and it cer;r.;nly deserves no encourage
mert. The literary pretensions that are
b-. -id upon it are absurd. At the same
, .iaie there is no proof that the worth
less books displace the good books. Most
of the people who read ephemeral
stories for fhe mental excitement and to
pass away the time would never take

It is perhaps the general opinion that
when horses have- ample time for chew
ing and digesting their feed there is no
necessity for chaffing or cutting hay and
straw. Wheu the time for leeding is
limited chaffing and cutting coarse fod
der is regarded as advantageous. This
U an Item of special Importance with
hard-worked horses kept iu the stable
only at night. Furthermore, chaffed
feed occupies less space for storage than
uncut hay or straw, and can bo readily
handled. Shredding corn fodder Is re
garded as au economical practice, but
apparently few experiments on the
comparative merits of shredded and
whole corn fodder for horses have yet
ben reported. No marked variation
was observed In the weights of two lots
of horses fed whole and cut timothy or
whole and cut alfalfa and cioer hay
mixed, in a test carried on at the l iuh
At the Maryland station, In studios
of the digestibility of a . number of
whole and ground feeds. It was found
that grinding corn shives that is,
cornstalks from which the blades,
husks and pith are removed until the
material resembled coarse bran, did not
destroy its value as a coarse fodder,
and that the finely-ground material
supplied the necessary bulk to the ra
tion as well as the same material un
ground. It was further claimed that
the finely-ground coarse fodder pos
sessed an advantage over theunground
material In that it could be mixed with
grain to form a well-balanced ration
and fed to horses on shipboard, or under
similar conditions, more readily than
nnground fodder and grain. Gov

It Is often convenient to have a crate
in which to haul a single hog, sheep or
calf. It is not necessary to have It so
large or so heavy but that It can be
easily lifted into ths wagon, or even
taken in the light wagon w here the ani
mal to be hauled is not too large and
heavy. The frame should be made of
two by four, strengthened with rods
and bolts. Four-inch slats are nailed
horizontally on the Inside of the sides
and perpendicular on the end. Three
slats dropped from above and retained
in position by the mortised end will re

Recently while at the Iowa Agricul
tural college the writer noticed the
grounc in the hog yard littered with
excreted intestinal worms. The keeper
explained that he had just giveu the
swine their semi-annual dose of worm
medicine He said that it was his obser
vation that bogs were frequently sick
as a result of intestinal worms and that
many times diseases arising from worms
were named cholera. This would the
more like y be the ease, as a laige num
ber of bogs might be sick at the same
time from 'he sam oause. Tulscaus of
disease is too frequently overlooked, es
pecially ly the farmer that has only a
few hogs and gives them but little at
tention. When a hog eats well and yet
remains stunted it may be guessed t hat
worms a-e at least a partial cause.
