THE FARMERS' ALLIANCE. LINCOLN, NEB., SATURDAY, APR. 4, 1891. THE FARM AND IIOME. SOME OF THE SYMPTOMS OF HOC CHOLERA. Hint That WUI Boar Re-priollnf Paint fur Rough Wood-Work 4itt!ng Bid or WmIi-Imi for I'otatoe. The Iowa state board of health gives the follow Ingr -symptoms of hoy cholera, which will bear re-printing: The pres ence of the dirteane in indicated by a cold shivering lasting from a few sec onds to several hours ; frequent sneez ing followed by a log of apatite, rough appearance of the. hair, drooping of the ears, ntupidnHs, attempt to vomit, tendency to root the bedding1, to lie - down in dark and quiet places, dull ness of the eye, often dim; sometime! swelling of the head, eruption of the ir and other parts of the body, dizzi ness, laborious breathing, vitiated ap petite for dung, dirt and salty nub stances, accumulation of mucus in Inner corner of the eyes, dincharge from the noo, fetid and offensive odor of discharges from the bowels, offen sive exhalations; diarrheal discharges are semi-fluid, or grayish green color . and often mixed with blood. In many . cases the skin on the belly between the hind legs, behind the ears and even on the no-io has numerous red spots, which toward the fatal termination turn pur ple. As the dlease progresses tho an imal becomes sluggish, the head droops with the nose near the ground, but usually will be found lying dewn with the noso hid in the bedding. If there has been costiveness, about two days before death there will be offensive, fetid discharge, the voice becomes faint and hoarse; the animal is stupid; emaciation increases rapidly; the skin becomes dry, hard and very unclean; there is cold, clammy sweat, and death t soon follows, with convulsions, or gradually by exhaustion, without a st ruggle. In chronic diseases, or those of long duration, the animal becomes weak, lies down most of the time, outs but little and has diarrhea. Tliene cases mtiy linger for weeks, scattering the poison of the disease in the dis charge wherever they go. To Faint Hough Wood Work. Those in search of a cheap paint for coarse wood work or stone work might give the following recipe a trial. It Is highly recommended by a contributor to the columns of the New England Homestead, after lengthy ex perience by his father, who has spent a long life as a ps inter, is a practical man and knows the weak points of most mixtures used as substitutes for paint: Slake a peck of lump lime; while the liquid is still slightly warm add four ounces of glue after dissolving, a quart of linseed raw oil nnd such color as is preferred, stirring it all well together. This will stand almost as long as paint on stone, brick and wood and will not rub. Whitewash or dry color put on with water will stand long and do well If varnished over with raw oil. These recipes are equal to the best calcimine and eminently adapted to outdoor exposure. Try small samples llrst if mistakes are feared. The amount specified will cover at least 1,000 square feet of surface.. It may be applied rapidly with a whitewash brush, although it will look better and form more of a protection if painted closely into broken surfaces. Winter U one of the best times In which to put it on. Getting Kid of Wmila. The prospect of a final eradication of weeds is not so good as we could wish, for without doubt nothing could be more helpful to the progress of Ameri can farming. A large part of the man ure given to crops goes to produce weeds, as also does most cultivation to eradicate them. Yet market garden ers who manure most heavily and cul tivate most thoroughly 11 nd weeds con fronting them still. It will be centu ries hence when the mass of farming lands are tilled as gardens now arc. and until then weeds of some sort will continue to vox the farmer. Some kinds of woods will disappear under high cultivation, but others will grow the more rampantly. Canada thistles will propably yield first to thorough cultivation, but some of the smaller annual, as rug weed and charlock, will continue to appear many years after no specimen has been allowed to seed. It is those minute seeds that lie waiting in the ground which are likely hereafter to give more trouble to the cultivator of tho soil than any other. As tho country becomes more densely populated it must necessarily be culti vated more highly, or as gardens are now. and the weeds now most trouble some to gardener will In the pests of 11 soil cultivator.

Kami Nulr. The generous farmer reajm generous crops. The lambs should be In an inclosure and be fed by themselves. Costly experiments never pay. Adam found that out the first time he tried it. It is the last load of manure that feeds your crop; all before that feeds the land. It is a poor crop that will rot pay for keeping an account of its cost and receipt.' Something does not come of noth ing. The elements of the crop must bo in the soil. Air. Murtfeldt says a cow is like a closet or cupboard you can take nothing out unless you put something in. A deep sandy loam is among the very best soils in which to successfully plant. If a little gravelly, all tho better. The first four or five months feed for bono and muscle; after that more fat, though a variety should always be gien. The soil intended for a strawberry bed should be plowed deep, and when ready for the plants, like a pulverized bunk of ashes. la setting out plants do not sprinkle the foliage, as it causes moisture to collect, injurious to the crown of the plant, causing rot Keep the barn yard cleaned up. A nail in a horse's hoof msy cause you more trouble than it would to keep the yard clean for a lifetime. The bush Lima benn is very highly commended. It needs no poles, is of excellent quality, can be planted closer than the tall Lima and stands the drouth better than snap beans. The way for a farmer to determine his profit or loss is the way every ether competent business man keeps books. It is to balance tiggregate re ceipts against aggregate expenses. All roots must go down their full length into the soil, spread apart fan shuped, and then the soil firmly pressed around them with the hands, clearing the crown even with or a little above the surface. To keep the burn and stable doors open has troubled many men. The time spent by tho world in hunting up sticks to prop doors back would make many years. Yet a simple hook on tho barn, and staple on door costing scarcely anything would do the busi ness. A farmer need not bother his brain nor fool his time away trying to follow a system of line breeding in growing swine. Leave this to the professionals. Better study the systems of feeding and improve on them than to spend time studying pedigrees. Feeding and not pedigrees is in his line of work. We would not have him ignore the value of a pedigree, but first he wants the hog, and it is not necessary for him to know of the pedigree further than that tho animal is purely bred and not too closely related to the breeding stock already ou the farm. Hint to llouteliaeuer. It saves time and leather to have a broom, brush and dustpan for every Moor in the home. Kqual parts of sweet oil and vinegar and a little gum arabio make au excel lent furniture polish. In rousting meat turn with a spoon, instead of a fork, as the latter pierces the meat and lets the juice out Hot tallow is said to remove machine oil from white goods. Repeated appli cations will also remove ink stains, if exposed to the rays of the sun. Thin glass is too good a conductor of heat to be advisable for keeping toilet creams, which jrerve their quality best in thick queensware or pottery. Here is a ' h'mhly recommended corn euro:" Dip in water a piece of common washing soda and rub the troublesome growth with it two or three mornings a week. To keep glassware bright, wipe directly from tho hot suds. Tumblers used for milk should be thoroughly rinsed in cold water before being immersed in hot suds, as hot water seems to drive the milk Into tho glass and give them a dingy appearance. Hoi led eggs, to slice nicely, should be put over tho lire in cold water, and should remain lifteeu miuutes after the water begius to boll, and allowed to cool in tho same water. If cooled by dropping them into cold water they will nut peel smoothly, When decanters and carafes become no discolored inside that shot or tine coals will not cleanse them, till the bottle with llnely chopped potato skin, cork tightly and let the bottle sUtud for tluvo days, when the skin will feruteitt.

We were chil dren together, and as we grew older we seemed like brother and sister. Even then she was all the world to me, and how dear I was to her her own tweet lips have told ma a hun dred frillies. Our joys and sorrows were shared together. As the years rolled away our affection for each other grew steadily stronger and deeper. At 19 Ediena was as fair and pure as the most spotless tiling under the sun. I almost worshiped tier then, but I was still young and no thought of marriage entered my bead. So beautiful a maiden could not long avoid attracting admiring suitors, and among those who flocked to her was one Cyril Stnythorne, the tall, proud, aristocratic master of Stay thorne hall. I will not deny that I soon grew jealous of many of these fawning and flattering suitors, and of Cyril Btaythorne in particular. Most beautiful young ladies are naturally a trifle inclined to be flirts, and Edi ena Wy Id mere was no exception. Not but that she loved me as truly and dearly as ever, but never bad I made a serious declaration of my passion; and for a time she 'enjoyed the attention bestowed upon her by those who had been smitten by her rare charms oi grace and sweetness. I was poor, a carpenter's son and this fact alone In my eyes of her par ents disqualified me as a son in law. Our Savior was a carpenter's son, but this fact has not caused the call ing to be deemed more lofty than it was nineteen hundred years ago. Ediena's parents were on the outlook lor a "good match" for their daugh ter, and they looked with favor upon Cyril Staythorne. I shall' never forget the feeling of rage and despair that seized mo us one day I saw Ediena seated in Cyrill Staythorne's handsome car nage, with Staythorne himself by her side. I cannot describe our next meeting. How much 1 was to blame for what followed I now know, but I then thought I had jnst cause for what I did, 'Hot words were utter ed, and lor the first time we parted in anger. The next I felt the quiet New Eng land town, where twenty-one years of my life had been spent. A passpn ger train bore me away out into the world. I was going anywhere that I might get away from the hateful spot that I had always known ns home, where so many happy days had been spent with the one from whom I thought fate had separated me forever, I sought and obtained employment In a great city, the crowded streets and hurrying rush of which seemed very strange and uunntural to me. I tried to forget my old home and Ediena, but I soon found it impos sible to do so. Strive as I might to tear my image from my bosom, her fair, sweet lace was almost always before me. Sternly I fought against the power that seemed to be draw ing me back to her. Many a night did I awaken and sit bolt upright in the darkness of my little room, with ber plaintive cry sounding in my ears: "Oh, Jasper, come back to mel" It always seemed very real, but I reasoned myself into thinking that it was all imagination. I now know that many, many times she uttered that very cry. One day an accident happened to me. I was passing along beneath the spot where repairs were being made on a building, when a falling board struck me senseless. I was Cicked up and carried to a hospital, ut when 1 received consciousness I did not know my own name. My mind did not seem deranged. I could remember events and people, but I could not recall the nanto of a single person whom I knew. For several days I bty there, gradually growing bet t or physically, but in no way improving mentally. Try as 1 might, I could not recall names. I remember my home, Ediena, Cyril Staythorne everything; but I could not speak the name ol a single place or person, although scores of limes 1 seemed on the point of doing so. The lost night of my stay in the hospital arrived, and at a vry enrly hour 1 sought my t ouch nnd was oon fast asleep, I nm not natural ly a dreamer, but am it very sound sleeper. It did not seem" tlutt 1 dreamed that night, but suddenly I found myself in n lamlliar spot, it wnstiight, audit thunderstorm was rapidly coming on. The black heaven ware seamed with lire, and deep thunder roared lik an enraged monster, I wu standing on the old bridge whi.lt panned a winding tream not tarlrotn my latyhoud bouts. Suddenly a flash of lightning showed m Ediena hurrying along th bridge, hurtled and attuned that U should be there at suclt a time, I was about to ranks tny irwuc known, tun another lth hewed nmither pron on th bridge, I'hthly I taw Ms da.k, iiiustachiHl, tviltv lir.nd 'tms fart, and plainly 1 brard Ediena's rry ol irpii and fear as Im ronlrontetl her midway on the trtk Then through th darlne floated hi triumphant ulamatlon: "Ah utt! Ediena Muir. I have you now. Twice I tar tA you to 1 my wife, oniy to meet rith re fusal and scorn. To-night I sw?ar you shall consent to marry m. or you will meet death in the waters of Crooked river!" Then tame another flash ot light that showed my darling struggling in his vile clasp. To my ears came n cry that stirred every drop of blood in my veins. In an instant I leaped forward and tore her from his arms; at the saino time I dealt him a terrible blow that sent him reeling against the railing ot the bridge. The rotten guard gave way, nnd flinging up his nrms, with the'look of unutterable horror ou his face plainly revealed bv the vivid glare, he uttered one wild cry and plunged downward into the dark wuter. Ediena uttered one joyful cry: "Jasper! Jasper!" Then she sank unconscious at my feet. From that moment I knew no more until I awoke in the morning to find myself in the hospital. And in the morning my memory was ful ly restored to its natural condition. I found that I knew ntyown nnme and the names of my friends. That day I left the hospital. 1 remained in the city a week, and during the entire time my strange dream if dream it was worried me constantly. Was Ediena in trouble? Did she need my protection? As a final result one night I board ed a swift train, and in the morning I stood by my darling's bedside. She wns just recovering from a brief, but severe illness, As she clung to my hand nnd uhod tears of joy she sobbed reproachfully: "Oh, Jasjer! Why did you leave me there ou the bridge alter rescuing me from Cyril Staythorne's hands?" "What io you mean?" I hoarsoly gasped, scarcely able to credit my ears. Then she described a scene just ns I had witnessed and taken part in my dream. She Anally said: "I was over to Mable Gray's, where I intended to spend the night, when the thunderstorm came up. I don't know why I did it, but I resolv ed to return home, nnd I started out despite the protests of both Ma bel and her mother. I met Stay, thorns on the bridge. He seized me in his vile grasp, nnd 1 called for help. Then you came and snnthed me from his hands, at the sanio time burling him off the bridge. 1 caught one glimpse of your face as it was re vealed by the lightning; and then I fainted. When I recovered con sciousness it was raining, and I was alone on the bridge." "And Cyril Staythorne?" I asked. "Was found the following day, floating, a corpse on Crooked river, My story ends here. I have al ready told you that Ediena is iny wife. I cannot explain the mystery ofmydrenm. I can only write the question that I have asked myself a thousand times: ., "Was it a dream? Yankee Blade. Conquered the Old Man, An extremely stout, choleric old gentleman sat in his office one day fuming over a lot oi papers and swearing to himself, savs the New York Sun. He was in a beastly tem per, for things had gone wrong ever since morning and now and then he cast his eyes about as if in search oi something to kick as an outlet for his tempestuous state oF mind. "That book agent is out here, sir,' said a clerk, thrusting bis head through the door. "Show him in," yelled the old gen tleman greedily, "and I'll kick the everlasting stuffing out of him." A tniuute later a pretty girl came demurely in, and, calmly drawing a chair up to the old gentleman's desk, smiled sweetly. "Just excuse me a minute," said the old fellow, "there's a uasty book agent coming." "I am the book agent, sir," said the girl, and she thrust a hand away down through a hole in her dressund brought up a volume. "Can't 1 sell you a copy, sir," she said cheerfully, running through the leaves. "It is only f.",and is profuse ly illustrated and so needful that no homo is complete without one. 15uy a copy, please, ami 1 shall forget that you called me nasty." "I didn't," puffed the old gentle man, excitedly. "I swear I never said anything of the kind. lcnve the book." Then the old man yelled: "John, give this young lady $."," When the old gentleman picked up his book to carry it home ho disco v ered that it was a collection of love songs. Books In a Library.
