CAN DUCKS SMELL?
It baa beon often asked whether or
not ducks can smell. Some hunt-pre
clto from tholr experiences instances
that seem to show ducks can smell,
others that ducku cannot. Now, the
nnturallcts would say that ducks, ow
ing to their habit, have no neod to
smoll, nnd hence cannot. This rule Is
not Infallible, but generally holds good.
Any wild thing with such eyes as
ducks bavo does not need to smell.
Nature seems to have given birds a
discerning nose. A fox will look
straight at a man nnd not seo him,
even when only a few feet away, pro
vided he docs not smell him or tho
man does not move. A duck will not
only seo a man standing perfectly still
at n long distance, regardless of tho

GOING TO FUNERALS.
Tho habit of going to funerals
grows upon ono so that It becomes vir
tually ineradicable) if properly encour
nged. Such funernls as thoso of Grant

Mourning gives place to morbid curi
osity to wltnoss tho Bpcctaclo and lis

in dead marches. Thcro Is something
deoply ImprcBsivo about a military
funeral. As for tho evory-day funeral,
with its real crcpo and grief, nothing
Is so growsomo. I hope I never shall
be obliged to attend any but my own,
and tho thought of doing that is not

TWO OLD FOES NOW FRIENDS.
Tho ending, of tho old enmity of
France nnd England is doubtless the
most romarkablo burial of the hatchet
recorded In history. In tho courso of
tholr rivalry these lnveterato foes,
from tho tlmo of tho Conquest to tho
French Revolution, fought twenty
wars. In Iho Bonaparte campaigns
they suffered a loss of 1,900.000 lives
In battle, camp and hospital and a
wnsto of money oxcecdlng six billions
of dollars. For tho twonty-threo years
of tho Bonaparto wars tho annual
doathrato'of tho British army was
67,000, of whom 7,000 were killed In
Now It Is all over, at least until tho
noxt quarrel. France, In M. Pellotan's
words, "no longer dreams of con
quest." Hor victories henceforth will
bo thoso of peace.
Tho Bacrlflce of men and money by
theso nations In their disputes is
probably unexampled in extent. It
points tho obvious moral of war's
barbarity and waste. Yet If all tho
battles betwoen England and Franco
wore to bo expunged from history
what a hiatus thcro would bo in tho
record of spoctacular warfare, of chiv

FRENCH WOMEN AND 8P0RT8.
Tho necessity of chaperonago has
largely Interfered with tho physical

an aunt or other person qualified to

part in a game of golf with tho same
enthusiasm as a young player. Some
progress, however, haB been effected

lain Is the man who buys councils
and corrupt legislators, the "respect

THE ENGINES OF WAR.
At a dinner during tho Franco-German

most sontentlous munner: "The
Fronch embarked In this war because
thoy conceived that they had tho su
periority in arms of precision; thoy
had the chassepot and thoy had tho
mitrailleuse" (which he pronounced
"mltralllouso") ; but of tho third en

sess oven a single specimen." This
said, he relapsed into perfect silence.

NEW CONSUMPTION TREATMENT
A new remedial agent giving great
promiso of future success In tho treat'
mont of consumption Is being tried
by two St. Louis physicians. Tho rem
cdy is a very joworful proteld, which
Is found In healthy blood, and the
theory Is that Its uso Increases the
carrying power of the blood so thai
tho dread disease can be thrown off
by tho patient. Tho drug Is given In
ternally, Inhaled In tho form ot spray
or. In extremo cases, Injected hypo
dermlcally. It Is very rapid In Its
action, the beneficial effect being
noticeable In a few days. It is alleged
that one patient, who was unablo to
rise from bed, after receiving tho
treatment for Boven days walked a
distance ot four blocks and climbed a
flight of stairs. It Is earnestly to bo
hoired that further Investigation will
prove the new remedy capable of all
that is claimed for It Utica Globe.
White Guineas and Their Care.
Guineas on tho farm aro a very
profitable fowl as they bavo to bo fed
only when tho ground is covered with
snow. They Bavo many chickens dur
ing summer and fall when chickens
go to fields for bugs, worms and
grasshoppers, as they always aro first
to seo a hawk If ono is In sight, and
they will sot up a terrlblo yell. Tho
chickens soon learn what is up nnd
will como flying to tho barn for safe
ty. I never knew ot a hawk killing
a guinea or their young. In tho cold
est weather thoy roost with tho hens
but In mild weather they profor the
trees. Thoy have a way of telling
when a cold wavo Is coming, as they
will go tor tho hen houso for lodg
ing. If thoro is any strange animal
prowling around In the night they
mako a great fuss. As chfekens are
leaving tho trees and coops In sum
mer and fall at daylight' hawks put
in their nppoaranco for their break
fast and I have shot many from tho
guineas warning me. They do not
have to bo kept scparato from tho
fowls nor do they bother tho hens as
do tho pearl guineas (colored). Thoy
arc oxcollent for tho tablo as their
meat Is gamoy but not dark. They
lay from May till September. Their
eggs aro Bmallcr than hca eggs, but
bring tho same in market. Guinea
eggs should bo hatched under, hens
as guineas aro a llttlo to fast for tho
little ones to keep up with. When
hatched with hens coop the hen for a
few days and mako a crate so they
can't wander away, as they will If
not so fixed; but In a few days tho
hen can be let out and will ralso them
providing they are not killed by
rats or other animals. Food them
Just tho sumo as chickens. A good
sized hen will cover about 20 eggs
and 28 days is tho time for Incuba
tion. Thoy do not like to bavo their
eggs taken from the nest but should
bo Beon to every day and whon they
commence to sit should bo broken up.
In a few days they will go at It again,
and will lay about 90 eggs each during
thq summer. C. A. Knight.

Raising Young Chicks.
This year I will raise only about
two hundred chicks, so will do all
my batching with hens. I leave all
tho chicks under tho hen until she
is through patching and until thoy
aro all dry. This gives them a good
start, as a chick to bo strong must
not bo chilled at this time. When the
hen is through hatching I remove her
to a dry coop and feed her well with
whole corn. Then when tho chicks
are thirty-six hours old I commence
feeding them five times a day, giving
them all thoy will eat up clean of
hard boiled eggs mixed with stale
bread crumbs, alternating with a feed
of cracked oats. Feed this way for
two weeks whon tho feod of oggs
and crumbs is left off and a feed of
small wheat, cracked oats, and millet
13 fed alternately. Small grit and
fresh water or milk is kept before
thorn at all times. After they aro
weaned thoy aro put In colony houses
scattered over a flve-acre patch. Each
houBO has bins of beef scraps, ground
bone, and a mixture of grains, includ
ing hullod oats, cracked corn, barley,
wheat and ryo when possible to ob
tain all of them. These bins the
chicks havo access to at all times.
Just beforo roosting tlmo they are
fed a mash containing oats 30 parts,
barley 25 parts, ryo 15 parts, corn 15
parts, wheat 10 parts, oil meal 5
parts, all ground together and mois
tened with water or Bklmmed milk.
If the chicks aro kopt freo from llco
they grow very rapidly when fed in
this way, and tho feeding' Is dono with
tho least possible labor.

Fowls for the Farmer.
Most farmers are not fanciers and
do not breed fowls to sell for breed
ers to others. Only now and then do
wo find a farmer that cares to handle
a fancy breed becauso of tho plum
age, or of tho ornamont they may bo
to his lawn. Most farmers want the
most useful fowl that can be found.
Tho farmer in breeding should keep
this point in mind and should not per
mit himself to be persuaded to take
up with somo high-priced breed of
chiefly fancy points. If a farmer
wants a fowl that ho can show and
take a prlzo on let him remember that
ho can do It just as well with com
mon breeds, provided thoy aro pure,
as with somo fancy breed of high
color. But leaving out the question
of shows, tho farmer should breed for
somo utility point alone. Say it 13
egg production. Let him loso sight
of all showing anu work to produce
egg layers. Let him select continual
ly the best layora for producers. Ac
cording. to tho testimony of showmen
ho will havo to say good-bye to his
hopo for prizes. A noted exhibitor of
birds declares that egg laying gets a
bird so out ot shape that sho stands
no chance whatever In a Bhow. Yet
these are tho kind of birds the farmer
wants. The most profitable egg pro
ducing flocks In tho country havo
beon selected in this way and they
are not purchasable, as their owners
can mako moro out of them In egg
producing than in selling them for
breeders. With all such flocks the
question ot selection Is a large one.
Culling must be carried on from year
to year, and that too relentlessly.
Only the weak have time to worry.
Dairying In Mexico.
Mr. Lesplnasse, tho United States
consul'nt Tuxpan, Mexico, In a report
to tho government, says: The old
methods of milking, churning, and
general manipulation of milk products
aro still in existence hero, thereby
rendering it Imposslblo to produce
good butter. Cows are allowed to
roam over tho grazing lands and aro
rarely sheltered or given the least
care. Tho milking process is per
formed In tho most unskilled manner
conceivable Tho cow la tied by the
head, and tho operator proceeds to
milk tho animal In his rough and un
systematic manner until ho Anally
forces a quart or two of Inferior milk
from tho cow's udder. The mlllt Is
placed In untidy wooden vessels nnd
transferred to somo shed or outhouse,
whero it Is allowed to remain unpro
tected over night. Tho following
morning tho cream Is Bklmmed and
elthor beaten with a forked stick or
violently agitated In a bottle until tho
butter granules are formed. It Is
then Indifferently washed and offered
as butter. It quickly turn3 rancid. It
sells at from 30 to 40 cents per pound
United States money, nnd Is good
nolther to look at nor to tnsto. Tho
sour milk Is compressed In a coarse
cloth, salted nnd allowed to dry for
sovoral days. It is then an insipid,
spongy mass, which sells for from
5 to 8 cents (U. S.) a cheese. Each
of theso cheeses is round, about an
Inch thick and about 8 Inches In dlam-
oter. Thoy find a quick sale in this
market. Such a thing as tho most
simple, modern dairy appliance Is un
known or at least not used.
New eMat Preservative.
A new meat curing process Is re
ported from Germany, where Profes
sor Emmerich claims to be able to
0)rcservo meat In a fresh condition by
Injecting into tho veins of tho dead
animal acetic ncid. Tho blood is first
permitted to run out and then the
acid is put in. It permeates tho flesh,
so tho professor claims, and that pre
vents nil decny nnd makes the use ot
rofrigeratlon unnecessary. It is ob
vious that if this process proves to bo
all that is claimed for it, it will revo
lutionize tho meat curing industry, as
acetic acid is not an expensive pre
servative. Tho reports say that meat
so cured has been shipped from Ger
many to South African ports and was
found on arriving at its destination to
bo of good quality and perfectly pre
served. Our readers must remombor
however that great things aro claimed
for all new processes.
Feeding the Bull.
The feeding of tho bull Is a very
Important matter, more so than the
feeding of tho cow, for tho reason that
tho bull is generally kept up all tho
time. Under such an abnormal con
dition ho becomes too fat if ho is
fed a too largo ration of corn. It is
better to feed him on a mixed grain
ration, including oats, and to glvb
him a rough feed rich In nitrogon
rather than rich In carbon. Bran,
which is comparatively low in car
bon and high In nitrogon, should bo
a part ot tho dally ration. For tho
bull at least roots should be fed In
considerable quantities, unless ho has
an abundance of exercise, which most
of our bulls do not got. If under a
properly balanced ration tho bull be
comes too fat it is indicative ot a
lack of vigor, and such a bull should
bo disposed ot and ono substituted
that has tho vigor desired.
Reject Decayed Food.
Tho farmer Is sometimes tompt,ed
to feed decayed or musty food to his
poultry. It should nover bo done.
Just what effect it might havo on the
eggs produced by the fowls wo do not
know, but It may have a very serious
effect on the dlgestivo apparatus. We
havo seen It urged not to feed such
foods because they would glvo to tho
eggs tho same taints they had them
selves, but this may bo doubted. Ono
writer tries to provo his caso by as
sertlug that ontons fed to fowls pro
duced the smell of onions In tho eggs.
This may well bo true, as tho onion
contains a very penetrating oil that
will pass through tho systoms ot most
animals. It will appear In tho egg of
tho hen or tho milk of tho cow. But
that does not apply to tho general
run of foods. They should bo re
jected, but rejected for the reason
that they endanger the health of the
Green Manuring Crops.
Thero aro many soils that are not
benefited by green manuring crops.
Such soils aro thoso already rich In
nitrogon and In humus. An Investiga
tion by tho University of Illinois has
shown that on many of tho soils in
Illinois an addition of humus and of
nitrogen would be a posltlvo detri
ment. This leads to tho remark that
wo must havo a reason for overy farm
oporation. Tho green manure crop
Is needed on tho soil that is deficient
In humus and nitrogen, but is labor
lost on many other soils. It Is obvious
that wo cannot lay down rules that
can bo followed blindly on all farms.
The green manuring crop Is valuable
whero It is needed, but worthless or
worse, whero It Is not needed. The
intelligence of every farmer racist de
termine tho necessity for each opera
tion on tho farm.
Many failures with incubators are
due entirely to Ignorance In those try
ing to run them, In this, as in every
thing else, a person must learn how.
Her "Famous Artist."
During a recent exhibition ot pic

what sho thought must bo a flattor

who did not Bcem to bo bo gratified

Under the caption, "The Union Pa
cific Railroad and Louisiana Terri
tory," tho new World's Fair folder Is
sued by tho advertising department of
tho Union Pacific, which has attracted
bucIi general attention, recites theso
"Whllo tho construction of tho
Union Pacific Railroad, Its trials and
triumphs, aro a part of tho history of
tho United States, the Important part
played by this railroad in tho develop
ment of tho Louisiana Purchase can
hardly bo estimated. In tho building
up of this vast domain It has been one
of tho chlof factors.
Ono hundred years ago the popula
tion of tho region was estimated at
20,000, Up to tho Inception of tho
Union Pacific (In 1860) It had In
creased to 3,233,529. Ill 1900 It num
bered over 13,000,000 of Inhabitants.
In this wonderful growth, with Its stu
pendous Increase In all tho many-sided
phases of commercial, material and
Intellectual prosperity, tho Union Pa
cific as a glance at the map will
show has had a conspicuous share.
It has opened vast regions of fertile
country to settlers, and brought great
areas of an raknown and unproduc
tive wlldernoBS Into close communion
with metropolitan centers and mar
kets. Thriving cities, towns and ham
lets, through its efforts, havo sprung
up in overy direction.
It may be of Interest to know that
tho total number of manufacturing
plants, and the value of their outputs,
combined with that of tho national
products as reported In tho census of
1900, glvo an aggregate production for
tho Louisiana region of $3,500,000,000
annually, or 223 times the original pur
chase price. Tho same census roports
(1900) also show the total population
to bo 13,343,255, ot which 8,303,096 In
habitants are Hvlng in tho states and
territories reached by the Union Pa
cific. On tho 1900 census figures, it is
estimated that the true wealth ot the
Louisiana purchase can be stated at
about $13,051,868,359. of which $9,360,
621,387 Is represented In the states
reached by this great railroad."
Honestly, now, It you had all tho
money you needed would you worlf
enough to keep vourself exorcised?
