THEIR FIRST JOBS.
One of the most fascinating arti
cles In the June Issue of Human Life
Is that by Hugh CH Weir, telling how
David Belasco, Frank A. Munsey,
Kellar, ho of "magic" fame
Thomas A. Edison, Jacob Riis, and
John Philip Sousa got their first
Jobs, started ut the very lowest
round of the ladder and "climbed
through difficulties to the stars."
But even In the way they handled
these same humble "Jobs" the render
will discern a foreshadowing of the
qualities that have made each of
these men pre-eminent In his line.
The tragic results of David Uel
asco's attempt to introduce Shakes
pcrean drama Into tho rude mining
camps of California thlrty-llvo years
ago what Frank A. Munsey did with
his first hundred dollars and why It
was worth more to him than any oth
er money he ever earned how Edi
son engineered his first coup as a
newsboy nnd reaped a golden har
vest from his "nerve" nil these In
cidents have a decidedly comical as
well as a serious side.
Kellnr's Insatiable curiosity it was
perhaps that finally led him into the
field of magic, but as chore boy In a
drug store, well, tho predicament
i( got him Into thoro will havo to ho
read to bo appreciated. Jacob MU
first Job raised him from straits so
desperate that It 1b difficult to bellovo
such things could bo possible In a
land of plenty, And tho great Sousa
his first Job, Hko Paddy, was tho
one ho didn't get, and all becauso he
couldn't keep a secret. And lt'H per
haps lucky for Sousa and the world
that Uo didn't.
AROUND TIE FARM
Calculating Silo Capacity.
For the benefit of slfo owners a lit
find It dlillctilt to determine the enptic
Ily of their silos or the amount ol
sllngo on hand nt any tlmo the follow
ing .method Is given: Multiply one-halt
tho diameter of the tnnk by the same
figure nnd then this result by 3.1410
This result will be tho Uoor nrca of tho
silo In snunro feet. By multiplying
this floor space by tho height of the
silo the result will bo tho capacity in
cubic feet. Tnko ns nn example a silo
10 by 30 feet. One-half of 10 feot Is
5 feet Flvo foot multiplied by G Is
23 foot, and 23 feet multiplied by
3.1410 Is 78.04 snunro feet, or tho flooi
nren of the silo. Multiplying 78.04 feet
by 30 feet, or tho height of tho silo, tho
result, 2330.2 cubic feet, represents the
number of cubic feet tho silo con
Tho weight of sllngo varies accord
Ing to the degrees In which It has set
tled and nlso according to the manner
In which tho silo was filled. On ac
count of this tho weight of a cubic
foot of sllngo must bo arbitrary. How
ever, good silage which Is well settled
weighs perhaps thirty pounds per cu
bic foot nt tho top nnd about fifty
pounds near tho bottom, A fair aver
age, therefore, for the entire silo would
be at the rate of forty pounds to the
cubic foot of sllngo. C. T. Cramm lu

Potatoes For Brood Sows.
Potatoes are an excellent feed for all
kinds of hogs, and when they are
cheap they may be fed with profit,
says the Breeder's Gazette. Tests of
their feeding value for fattening hogs
have shown on tho average four or five
pounds of potatoes equal one pound of
corn. Brood sows do well on potatoes
cither before or nftcr farrowing. For
them as for fattening hogs or pigs it
Is best to boil the potatoes and feed
soma grain along with them. About
twenty pounds of grain to a bushel
of potatoes makes a combination that
appears to satisfy the appetite of the
hogs and produces excellent results.
Tho cooked potatoes are mashed and
mixed with whatever ground grain or
shorts that are fed. One should avoid
making tbe slop very tblu or tho bogs
will bo forced to take in more water
than they naturally would drink. This
would not affect them seriously, but It
Is not desirable. Tho potatoes are
especially beneficial for brood sows be
cause of their bulk and their mildly
Tying a Horso.
A horso should always bo tied to a
hitching post with a strong strap or
rope which there Is no possibility of
its breaking. If a horse once breaks
loose he Is apt to acquire the bad
habit of breaking loose at every op
portunity. A neck strap or rope which passes
round the neck nnd through the ring
lu tho bit Is better than tho ordinary
tie strap fastened In tho bit ring such
ns usually conies with bridles. If n
horse has ncqulred the habit of break
ing loose try this plan nnd fool him
when he tries it again.
A horso should always bo tied so
that It cannot get its head to the
grouud. It will stand more quietly if
compelled to keep Its head up.
Itching Skin of Horse.
In case of itclilng skin have the horse
clipped and cut the grain ration down
u half. Do not feed corn. The ani
mal will do best on oats, bran and
hay. Green grass at first often leads
to itchiness of the skin. After clipping
apply to Itching parts as required a
mixture of one dram each of dilute
sulphuric acid nnd carbolic acid in a
pint of cold water. A little menthol
added Is effective where itching Is ex
cessive. Wasli affected parts before
the first application of medicine Is
made. If the trouble continues give
n tablespoonful twice dnily of n mix
ture of equal parts of powdered wood
charcoal and granular hyposulphate of
Feeding Grain to Calves.
There is no advantage In grinding
corn for calves except when they aro
very young or tho toothy tender from
pasturing. Even at two or threo weeks
of age calves will begin entlug shelled
corn nnd sometimes gain faster on It
than on ground corn. Onts seem more
satisfactory if ground unless tho calves
seem to mastlcuto them perfectly, ns
they often do when youug. At present
prices there Is little profit from feeding
any grain except corn to skimmilk
calves on pasture unless they are to bo
pushed to the limit of growth. It Is
better to feed grnln after tho milk Is
taken, ns It Is masticated better than
If stirred In milk. Breeder's Gazette.
Weigh the Milk.
It Li n good idea to weigh tho milk
from each cow ns milked to know
what they aro doing. It Is but little
work. Just tack up u paper lu a con
venient phico lu the stable with tho
days of tho month ncross tho top and
tho cows' names on tho left. With a
poncll tied to u string nnd a spring
balanco banging closing by, It Is but a
moment's work to weigh tho milk and
note It down. American Cultivator.
Remedy For Garget.
Glvo a tablespoonful of saltpeter
twice dally In the feed or drinking wa
ter. Foment the udder with hot wa
ter twlco dally nnd then rub well with
a mixture of equal parts of sweet oil
and fluid extract of poko root and bel
ladonna leaves. It .may bo necessary
