Combine Telephone and Telegraph.
A now complication of tho telephono
and tolograph with a now complication
of their names Is (ho Idea of an Italian
electrician, E. Malcottl, who makes a
trlplo proud boast of his Invention;
firstly, that tho apparatus Is susceptible
of being used on any existing telephone
lines without any previous alteration
of tho latter; secondly, that secrecy
is warranted of any communication;
and, thirdly, that tho construction Is
slmplo nnd tho prlco of tho Instrument
low. Tho distinctive featuro of tho
apparatus Is tho fact that there Is
no necessity of installing any special
exchanges and special lines, but that
any existing telephone plnnt Is ready
for tho telecryptograph, for thus the
telephonic Innovation has boon christ
ened. Tho apparatus Is worked by
currents analogous In every respect to
telophano currents, nnd, thereforo, In
no way interfering with tho ordinary
tolophono service. Tho secrecy of tho
dispatch Is warranted by a dovico al
lowing of nny two apparatus being
timed for n flguro established before
hand, bo as to keep tho telophono se
cret throughout tho lino ns well as at
tho receiving station, tho messagos ar
riving as ciphered telegrams. Tho re
ceiving apparatus may bo caused to
decipher automatically tho dispatch,
either aftor roceptlon or during tho
samo. Tho number of ciphers tho ap
paratus is susceptlblo of is upwards of
0,000,000,000, which is practically in
finite. Expect Valuable Discoveries.
A good deal of secrecy has been

Vftft I
In common geese tho males and
females differ In plumage, but this Is
not tho case with tho puro-bred gocse.
In their case tho males and females
aro alike. Tho largest geese aro tho
Toulouse, and theso aro popular with
men that havo n fancy for largo fowls.
If a man wants layers, however, ho
will choose tho China. Thoso that
ralso tho geeso largely for feathers
will choose tho Embden, becauso their
feathers aro pure white, and henco
tho market valuo of them is greater
than with thoso geeso whoso feathers
aro multi-colored. If a man morely
wants to produce birds that can be
marketed to good advantage ho will
find a cross of the Toulouse with the
Embden give good results.
Where geeso havo access to a pond
or a river they will derive much of
t.iclr subslstenco from the water. Tho
writer know of a man that lived on tho
banks of a river and had a largo flock
of geese. Across tho shallow river
was a starch factory, and from this
a largo amount of soaked corn datlv
ran from tho sluices Into tho river.
The geeso mado their living off this
corn, which they fished up out of the
water. It mado a perfect food so
far as softness nnd digestibility weri
concerned. They bulanced their ra
Hon with tho seml-aquatlc plants grow
ing In tho river and along its margin.
There are many like situations where
a flock of geese would savo what
would otherwise go to waste.
Shallow ponds in summer teem with
fish, water beetles, worms and other
forms of llfo. A flock of geeso shows
great enjoyment In hunting their own
food in such places. Cccse aro also
consumers of some of tho bugs that
disturb tho peace of tho farmer. One
man told tho writer how ho used to
use them for tho destruction of po
tato bugs. Tho geeso would travel
down tho rows, darting their heads
now to this side and now to that.
They consumed In tho course of a
day a very largo number of bugs.
Tho fault to ho found with them was
that thoy did not do their work per
fectly, hut loft colonics of bugs here
and there, which later had to be des
troyed by other agencies.
Tho goose lays from twenty-flvo to
fifty eggs nnd If sho could bo bred
up to lay more would become more
popular on tho farm. Perhaps It Is
posslblo to ultimately develop geese
to lay as many eggs as hens, but that
result Is a long way in tho future
at tho present time.
Frjshness of Eggs.
Thero are many old ways of test
ing tho freshness of eggs. Somo of
them may bo of llttlo value. Hero
Is ono that is going the rounds, but
for which wo cannot vouch. It may
bo all right: Eggs are placed In a pan
of water, giving each room enough
so that its motions will not bo Inter
fered with by tho others. Tho air In
tho egg will bo governed according to
tho ago of tho egg. If tho egg has
been kept In a moderately warm state.
If tho eggs aro Just laid thoy will be
motionless. If they aro more than a
week old they will partly stand on
tho llttlo end. This Is becauso the
air chamber is in the other end of
tho egg. This air chamber grows
larger as the egg becomes older and
tho molsturo In It evaporates. When
the eggs get still older they will stand
up straight In tho water and when
very old will float.
This test of course would be of no
valuo In the caso of pickled eggs or
of eggs kept In cold storage whero
tho tompcraturo was so low that the
evaporation of molsturo from the eggs
would he very small.
Fowls for Market.
Tho farmer should not wait till he
is ready to market his hens nnd roost
ers beforo separating them from the
rest of tho flock. Thoso that aro to
bo so disposed of should be separated
from tho rest at this time. If they
aro to bo Bold for the Thanksgiving
market they should bo placed on fat
tening food at this time. Chickens
for market should bo made as fat as
posslblo, as tho buyers want them that
way. Tho fat Is not Indeed eaten, but
It In somo way makes tho flesh of
tho fowls tenderer and tho buyers
realize that. Moreover, they aro will
ing to pay for tho tenderness that
comes from the fattening process. The
birds will also bo tender becauso they
havo beon deprived of exercise. Fowls
that exercise aro naturally tougher
than those that, do not. Four weeks
feeding will sometimes add two
pounds each to fowls and this mnkes
quite a difference with them when
they are marketed.
Don't Market Unfattened Stock.
Wo have seen tho traveling buyer
of chickens drive up to tho farm
houso and ask for poultry. Wo havo
seen the farmer get out a pan of
corn and toll the hens and roosters
about him, then draw them Into the
henyard and tho work of selecting
begin. Tho cockerels wero sold with
out an hour of fitting. They wero
gaunt and lean shanked. They
weighed light when put on tho scales
or hung on tho steelyards. Tho farm
er got out of thorn very little for tho
caro bo had bestowed on them. Theso
birds Bhould not havo been sold with
out being fitted. Shut them up anf
give them at least threo weeks of goo
As a general thing the grape vino
yard should be given clean cultivation
every year.
The Prairie Dog Nuisance.
Pralrlo dogs havo been declarod to
bo a nulsnnco by the laws of Nobraskn
and other states. Tho Nebraska law
goes so far as to dcclaro that any
ono having land Infested by pralrlo
dogs and not getting rid of them Is
maintaining a nuisance. The harbor
er of theso animals is made liablo
for damages committed on other land.
Highway commissioners are Instruct
ed to sco that tho law Is enforced.
In the discharge of his duty connected
with the extermination of pralrlo dogs
the commissioner Is allowed $3.00 per
day and expenses and instructed to
add tho amount to tho taxes of tho
laud where the work of exterminating
pralrlo dogs Is done.
This makes it necessary for tho
owner of lnnd to be vigilant in tho
extermination of tho nuisance. The
quickest nnd cheapest way to get rid
of the dogs Is to poison them, and
this is generally resorted to. In mak
Ing up the poison three ounces ol
strychnine and half a pound of potas
slum cyanide are put into one quart
of boiling wnter. To this two quarts
of molasses and a teaspoonful of oil
of anise are added. Then a bushel ol
wheat Is placed In a tight receptacle
and tho mixture Is poured over It.
It Is then stirred, while four pounds
of finely ground corn meal Is poured
Into It. The molasses ninkes the liquid
adhesive, so It will stick to tho grains
of wheat. Tho object of uslnc the
corn meal Is to absorb the superfluous
liquid or syrup and thus enable the
grains of wheat to carry a larger
amount of the poison. This poisoned
grain Is sown about tho places In
nablted by the dogs. They eat It and
dio In largo numbers.
There is, however, a decided scntl
ment against the uso of tho poison.
Ranchmen and farmers hate to handle
it and birds are frequently poisoned as
well ns the dogs. There is also some
danger to live stock nnd children.
Carbon bisulphide has been used foi
many years in the extermination ol
burrowing animals. It Is costly, but 11
Is effective and is still being quite
generally employed. It has tho ad
vantage of reaching all of tho anl
mals; for there are always some pral
rlo dogs that will not eat the poisoned
grain. The chemical mentioned In put
Into the burrows and changes to a
gas that kills the animals.
The Soy Bean in the North.
The soy bean Is being more exten
sively grown In the North now than
ever before. It Is found that it will
do well further north than tho cow
pea, and, In fact, that It can be grown
as far north ns dent corn thrives
Tho tanners of Maine who grow large
ly only flint varieties of corn alsc
raise tho soy bean In a small way. It
is believed that this can be mado cue
of the principal crops of the North
Its value for tho feeding of cattle Is
unquestioned, as it Is very rich In
In tho growing of this crop success
Is posslb e only when the soil contains
tho bacteria that form tho nodules
on tho roots. In that case tho land
will only need to have potash and
phosphorus added to It, if it needs
nny fertilizers at all. The Medium
Early is found to be one of the best
varieties for forage. The land should
bo thoroughly prepared before the
crop Is sown and the soil should be
kept cultivated. Drilling is of course
necessary if the crop Is to bo cultl
vated. Under such methods a crop Is
regarded as about eight tons.
The forage may be fed green, made
into hay or used In tho form of silage.
The silage Is preferred by sheep ovei
corn silage. It Is not probable, how
ever, that It will over tako the place
of corn In tho making of sllnge, ns If
can bo advantageously used as a hay
In some places whero both cow peas
and soy beans are being raised the
soy beans aro preferred for the reason
that they are much easier to be made
into hay.
In tho West, as in the East, the
great need of tho farm is to havo a
cheap source of protein. Whero a
man has hogs that need a protein
feed In winter it Is easy to bellovo
that tho silage mado from soy beans
would be better than tho silago mado
from corn, as It would contain moro
of tho protein so necessary to build
up tho muscular system of tho swine.
The soy bean has been less adver
tised than the cow pea and Is there
fore being grown leas extensively. It
seems, however, that it has a wider
range of growth, at least towards tho
north, than has tho cow pea. It will
be wlso for our farmers to try a
small plot of soy beans next spring.
Farm buildings should be given a
"going over" before tho cold of tho
winter comes. Too many cracks in
the barn may givo abundant ventila
tion, but thoy givo more too many
drafts. Ventilation is health, but
drafts are tho opposite. It does not
cost much to stop up cracks, and if
ono kind of material cannot be se
cured for this work another can.
There aro now Innumerable varie
ties of potatoes and they are increas
ing in number every year. Withal,
there is an improvement, but it is dif
ficult to say how long this improve
ment will go on.
If potatoes aro planted on land con
taining much humus thero will be lit
tle occasion for tho application of
nitrogen. This Is why new land Is
I frequently very good for potatoes.
