Ear Trumpet In the Hat.
Years ago. when a man was afflicted
with blindness or deafness, It was sel
dom that ho was cured of his trouble
5r benefited by treatment, oven If
guy eff6rt was mado to allovlato lna
allllctlon. It was generally taken for
granted that tho case was incurable,

lothlng to hopo for. But now tho
ipcciallsts nro not only moro numer
jus, but they have tho advantago of
ill the latest scientific apparatus to
lid them In tho examination nnd
.roatmont of tho patient.
In mnny cases of deafness which
inly a shoit tlmo ago would have
jeen considered Incurable tho physi
cian has been enabled to find some
mechanical appliance which would
make It posBlblo at least for tho Inan
Dr woman to catch many sounds which
were entirely Inaudible before. Of
courso those aids to tho hearing have
boon carried about In tho hands, as
a rule, but tho trouble Is generally
slight In comparison with tho advan
tago gained. Now, however, even this
is unnecessary, as tho Jatc3t appliance
af this kind is designed to bo carried
In tho hat, without nsslstanco from
either hand. Tho sound-receiving bells
arc located In cither side of tho head,
and the tubes which convoy those
sound" to the cars project downward
through the rim of tho hat, as illus
trated. The connecting tubes nro
capable of adjustment ns to length,
nnd tho whole nrrnngemont Is scarcely
noticeable, at least in compaiison to
tho old style car trumpet or nietallc
fan formerly used.
Thomas W. Messenger of Quorn,
South Australia, Is tho Inventor.
There lives In tho llttlo town of
SImpsonvllle, Tex., a young lady
whoso name may be inscribed on a
roll In tho hall of fame some day, and
all because hIio has solved one of the
great popular problems of the Any.
Ono of tho most aggravating experi
ences of modern civilization Is to go
out with an umbrella believing that
there Is to bo rain, and after lugijing
tho tiling about all the morning, or
all the nftornoon, or perhnps all day,
conio home without having even a
suspicion for using It. Generally wo
profit by this experience tho next
tlmo It is cloudy by leaving tho um
brella at homo and receive as our re
ward a good drenching.
Tho lady in tpiestlon has invented
nn umbrella cane. This is a contrlv
nnco embodying the two in ono. Tno
umbrella Is rolled tight and fitted
snugly in a long tubular leceptaclc,
which Is surmounted with a pietty
handle and makes an admirable cane.
No one, of course, objects to carry
ing a cane while walking, and if It
insures protection from rain its desir
ability Is increased Immeasurably.
There nio few things under tho
sun that are of any valuo that have
not been so successfully imitated in
choaper nrticles that tho bogus ono
cannot bo dlstinguibhed from the gen
ulno except by exports. It Is llUing,
therefore, that an Imitation gold nug
get fehnuld be doslgned by a citizen
of Colorado, and if Ills nuggets pass
muster In that climo whero nuggets
aro on close terms of acquaintance
with everybody who Is anybody, then
his nuggets ought to bo able to shine
In society elsewhere.
So much doos tho lnvontor think
of his scheme that ho has had It
patented nt Washington nnd proposos
io put tho product upon tho market
at no moderate rates, of course.
His method consists of reducing
genuine gold Into a molten stato, "ami
dropping tho samo while still iu a
molton stato upon an uncontlncd mass
of material re.ducod to small plccea,
where the whole of the oxtorior of
the metal is caused to assume a form
simulating a natural nugget."

Curing and Smoking Bacon.
J. W. 1. How Is a good brine
mado? 2. What wood is best for
smoking nnd how long should tho
smoking bo continued?
1. Pork to bo pickled in brine should
bo well rubbed and sprinkled with
salt, then filled into a clean barrel,
salt being sprinkled betweon tho lay
ers, using no brine for forty-olght
hours; then fill tho barrel with a
brine of salt nnd water strong enough
to bear an egg. 2. Oak or hickory
chips, or corn cobs, make good smoko
for meat, but they should bo green or
kept moist &o as to prevent blazing.
Hardwood sawdust Is also sometimes
used for smoking moat. Such soft
wood? as pine, cedar, mulberry, etc.,
are not suitable for this purpose. Con
stant smoking for ono week Is recom
mended by some authorities, or tho
smoking may bo done half a day nt
a tlmo for two or three weeks, accord
ing to the fancy- ns to color.
Salting Cattle Oat Hay.
G. R 1. Is It well to have salt be
fore cattlo continuously? 2. Is it
wise to feed oat hay every day to
cows due to calve In spring?
1. Tho most careful cnttle raisers
prefer to have salt before their ani
mals all the time, or at least once
dally. When cattlo are salted only at
Intervals of a week or longer, as is
often the case, tho animnls Invariably
take moro than is good for them,
which has a moro serious effect than
Is generally supposed. The 111 effect
Is caused by overtaxing the kidneys,
producing undue thirst, and unduly
exhausting the body of flesh-producing
materials. When nnimals have access
to calt each day they take only as
much as their systems require, which
does them goou w Ithout injury of any
2. Unless oat hay Is affected with
smut or mold there Is no objection to
feeding it to pregnant animals. It Is
not considered safe to give fodder af
fected with cither of these fungi to
cows soon due to calve.
Vetches for Hog Pasture.
I... B. W. How would it answer to
sow vetches on clay land along with
timothy and clover seed, and how
many pounds of seed should bo np
plied per acre? 2. Would it bo advis
able to sow a small Held of vetches
for hog pasture?
1. Vetches would not be a good
crop to seed down with if they arc
'to bo allowed to mature, because they,
like pens, aro apt to fall down and
smother the young seeds. They may,
however, bo sown with advantage
along with clover to bo pastured off
by hogp. After tho vetches aro all
pastui cd orf, the young clover will
forgo ahead and make good fall pas
ture for the animals. 2. Vetches alono
mako very good hog pnbiure. as they
aro much relished, very nourishing
and produco a good growth which
comes up repeatedly aflor being eaten
off. Vetches should bo sown nt tho
rate of about one bushel to tho acre.
Hen Manure and Fertilizers.
A. A. CJ. Cabbages nro gross feed
ors and generally give a good re
aponso to heay applications of fertil
izers, though too much available nitro
gen very oarly in tho season mny do
harm by causing an unduo develop
ment of loaf nt tho oxponso of the
"head," which, under such circum
stances, doos not form normnlly. Wo
would, therefore, delay tho application
of tho nitrate of soda until after tho
hoads have begun to form, and then
uso it ns a top dressing nt tho rate of
100 to 200 His. per aero. It would prob
ably lio foil ml piofltablo to apply a
certain amount of potash with the hen
manuro before planting out tho cab
bages. Wood ashes answer admirably
for this purpose, but if not obtainable,
murlato of potash at the rate of 100
lbs. per aero may be used.
