A Word About Farming.
Farming may not be as delightful
aa we, in the poetic mood in which we
sometimes write may paint it, but
there is one fact in relation to the
calling that cannot be denied and
that is this, that however distaseful
it may be to some, there is none other
beneath the sun that men can engage
in with a like capital that is any
thing like as pleasant and profitable.
Every farmer may not see the golden
beam of promise In every rick of well
cured hay or every waning field of
golden grain, but there is no rubbing
it out that the farmers home may be
made the most beautiful spot on
earth and his table supplied with
ktha best eatables, the land
I affords and if such entertaining sur
roundings a good appetite such as the
farmer always possesses, and a table
spread with delicious fresh vegetables,
fruits, ice cold cream, butter and crisp
brown chicken, will not produce hap
piness then we are at a loss to know
what will. This is according to our
ideas the ne plus ultra of existence
and for these things poetry or no poe
try commend us to farm, the ereen
leaf embowered home in some nook or
mountain dell behind which rises ro
mantic cliffs that run back into lofty
heights of eternal snow and pinacles
grand, and from whose doorway
spreads out to the front waving mead
ows, marked with winding willow.
frincei brooks clear as crystals and
alive with mountain trout; or even

Rocky Mountain Husbandman.
Amid this mass the quick eye of the
domador soon singles out a horse
suitable to his requirements, perhaps
the finest and most vigorous of the
whole tropilla. As the animal passes
beneath the cross-beam swift as a
dart, unerring as the lasso the dom
ador drops upon his back and rides
on with him into the spacious corral.
The terrified brute plunges and rears
and rushes madly here and there,
rousing the whole herd into a state of
excitement and fear.
Once free ol the danger of collision
with the herd, which has iled to the
furthest corner of the corral, the dom
ador whips from his arm a large and
coarse cloth, with which he promptly
succeeds in blinding the captured
torse, and then begins in a variety of
ways to master t he proud wild spirit
beneath him. The horse will kick out
in all directions, plunge and rear,
whirl round and round, backward and
forward, and even roll over and over;
but as well might he attempt
to shake . off his own name as to
rid himself of that terrible in
cubus, the domador. The latter, of
course, takes care that the animal
does not roll over him. He simply
steps off and aside till the brute picks
himself up again, only to find that the
grip on his sides is there as strong as
ever. Blindfolded as he is. he cannot
see his tormentor, although at times
he manages to elude the latter's grasp
and attempts flight; but the ready
lasso speedily arrests his mad course.
As a rule, before the horse has had
time to regain his feet the domador
has contrived to slip into his mouth
the cruel massive bit used all over the
The effects of this new instrument
of torturo are fearful. Maddened by
the nam, quivering with rage and fear,
the animal dashes away in any direc
tion, forced by the cruel bit now to
this side now to that, until the doma
" dor, at length succeeds in .forcing him
through the gntes of the corral into
the wide open camps. Then begins a
mad race for liberty or the mastery of a
noble spirit. At a speed to which ter
ror, pain and fury lends wings, horse
and man thunder over the ground,
which seems literally to fly beneath
their feet. Foam drops like flying
scud on each side of the horse; his
nostrils dilated and fcis eyeballs dis
tended, mane and tail streaming on
wind which their speed creates; the
tamer seated cool and grim, hand and
eye alert, and every faculty bent on
overpowering the fierce beast hs be
strides. Thus they pursue their wild
flight for many leagues, and the doma
dor knows that when the brute's mad
rage is snent and his strength exhaust
ed he wifl slacken his headlong pace
more and more, until he almost com
pletely halts, and soon, breaking out
into a fit of trembling, surrender for
ever the savage freedom of his un
tamed state. The rest of his educa
tion is easy and need not be told.
The Farm, Field and Stockman pub
fishes the following experience of J. F.
Wood with incubators.
I see very little in print, from those
who are running incubators, in regard
to their experience with the machine.
Is it because they are not very suc
cessful, or is their success so great they
are afraid of too much competition?
I want to relate some of the difficul
ties I find, and if anybody can give
any pointers to help me any I would
be glad to hear from them. I have
been trying artificial incubation this
summer for the first time.
From all the information I could
gather on the merits of incubators the
one I have is as good as any. It is easy
to run, even here, where the outside
temperature always cools off in the
night from 20 degrees to 40 degrees. I
have kept it steady at about 103
degrees to 104 degrees with very little
variation. It is top heat. The water
in the pans underneath evaporates
readily, yet is always cool.
So far I have only been able to
hatch about two-thirds of the fertile
eggs; the others are dead in the shell,
when almost ready to come out and a
few pip and then die. Those that
hatch come out lively and smart.
Kow is this the common experience
with incubator or am I or the incu
bator at fault? There is something
wrong somewhere, for I have art forty
hens with the same kind of eggs, and
when they aet steady every fertile egg
Will some one explain the difficulty?
Is a machine that has both top and
bottom heat any better?
This is the name given to a product
of rendering establishments; it con
aistsofmeat, bones, hair, gristle, food,
etc., from which the fat has been tak
en, brought to dryness and ground.
It is very rich in nitrogen and phos
phoric acid, and is a most admirable
manure for garden and fruit crops. I
have found it to give good results
wherever tried in the garden, but it is
especially valuable on lawns and in
the green house, though for green
houses and pot plants generally it
should be used in connection with a
6mall amount of potash salt. In the
open field I have used it at the rate of
1,000 pounds per acre without any
injury, and this is probably as large a
quantity as could be applied at one
time economically. A much smaller
quantity, from 400 to 000 pounds,
would be enongh for an ordinary ap
plication to a lawn or field in grass.
To the lawn it would be well to apply
it several times in the course of the
growing season, and if possible just
before a rain. Also on garden crops
it should be applied several times at
intervals of three or four weeks dur
ing the growing season. On plants in
pots I used it at the rate of one tea
spoonful to a five inch pot, applied to
the surface of the soil. '1 he price at
which it is sold at the present time
varies from $10 to $15 per ton f. o. b.

A Novel Corn Tie.
A writer in the Ohio Practical
Farmer says: For several years we
have been using the blades of the
common cat tail (Typha latifolia) for
tying corn-fodder. Tha blades should
be cut before frost and in time that
they may cure partly before they
need to be used. If they are too dry
and brittle, dampen the bundle as
you would rve straw. A grass sickle
is very good for cutting them. We
think thtm better than straw, being
much stronger, nicer to handle, and if
cared for, will last for a number of
years. f this plant is growing near
you it might be well to try it. Or if it
Is not handy it would, I think, be
profitable to start it. It will thrive
in a rich black soil if there is a
constant supply of water. It will
produce more bands on any area and
does not need to be cared for as rye
The Lice Plague.
Lice are the greatest plague and
profit destroyer of the poultry raiser.
Unless the utmost care and cleanliness
are observed they are sure to appear
as Boon as warm weather comes. It
is the best not to 'wait x until, they
come before applying the remedies,
but saturate the perches with kero
sene now, burn up all old filthy nests,
and whitewash coops and fences with
hot lime wash. Do this thoroughly,
and it will save lots of trouble later in
the season. The effectiveness of the
whitewash is much increased by ap
plying it hot and getting well into thf
cracks and corners.
Speaking about paying stock, the
American Live Stock Journal says
that sheep are undoubtedly the best
paying stock kept, and when their en
riching and brush destroying procliv
ities are considered, it is questionable
whether any farm can afford to
run without a flock. The call from
good livers for-fine lamb and mutton
is on the increase, and the time will
never come when wool, famous for its
usefulness in all ages, will not be prized.
Cleanliness for Sheep.
Be careful about the sheep pens dur
ing warm weather. It is necessary toj
have pens into which they may gp for
shelter during storms, but they should
not be housed in these at night unless,
they are dry and well ventilated.
Nothing is worse lor sheep, mora
quickly inducing disease, than over
warm pens, which of necessity becomo
damp and foul. Cleanliness is perhaps
more essential for sheep than lor any
other class of live stock.
A French chemist has found a min
eral which after being 'melted
and remelted several tiiTies,
resembles pure beeswax so closely
that even experts can only dist inguish
it after careful study. It is extensive
ly used in Europe to adulterate wax,
which has fallen greatly in price on ac
count of the fraud. Its scientific name
is or ceresin, purified ozokerite.
A Few Hints.
A good constitution in a hog is in
herited, not made.
Sour milk is a treat both to hens
and to little chickens.
If only one thing is used coal oil is
probably the best for lice.
Provide a shelter under which thf
young fowls can run whenever it rains
Giving the hogs the run of the tim
ber pasture will maintain better
Yougg poultry should not be allow
ed to go on the roosts too early; it
causes deformed breasts.
Hens should never be fed so well
that when they are given a good
range they will not forage a good por
tion of their time.
Turkeys can, to a considerable ex
tent be given sweet skimmed milk in
place of water, and if the drinking ves
sels are kept clean will be all the health
ier. "The advantage of hatching guineas
under common hens is, that properly

than if the guinea hens are allowed to

Mining With a Balloon Protection
From Collisions A Clever Trick
An Odd Light ATable With
Growing Leg Beware
Mining With a Balloon.
To descend hundreds of feet into the
earth in search of the hiddan treasures
of mineral wealth supposed to be
concealed there is no uncommon
thing, in fact is the natural way of
mining. S. C Rees, however, promises
to revolutionize the old fashioned way
of mining, and has under considera
tion now a prospecting tour by means
of a balloon. . His scheme, as out
lined to a Journal Miner man, is
substantially as follows: Rich car
bonates have been found in Cataract
canyon in a blanket ledge. While the
ledge is accessible at the upper end of
the canyon, owing to the steep
descent of the canyon toward the
Colorado River, when near the latter
point the ledge is located about 1200
feet above the bottom of the stream,
and is consequently inaccessible by all
ordinary means. The question of
reaching it by means of ropes from
the top of the almost perpendicular
walls of the canyon have been
discussed and pronounced im
practicable. Mr. Rees has ac
cordingly arranged with iEronaut
Howard to visit the canyon in Octo
ber. A large balloon will be inflated
in the bottom of the canyon and se
cured by ropes there to prevent its es
cape, when it is proposed to inflate it
and make the ascent to the point in
the walls of the canyon where the
ledge is and a foothold worked into it
from the balloon.
After the work is fairly commenced
the balloon will be used only as a
means of conveying them to and from
their work. The experiment is a new
and novel one, and while to tho ordi
nary miad looks impracticable,
Messrs. Rees and Howard think it
practicable and expect to make their
fortune there. They propose and will
have it divided into seven or eight
compartments, any one of which, when
inflated, being capable of carrying a
man's weight. This will be done as a
precaution in case oi acciueni, as Hav
ing the airship strike against the
rocky sides of the canyon the raising
power ot the balloon would not ue
Protection From Collisions.
In his article on "Protection from
Collisions" Mr. Huntington attempts
to excuse the engine ir.cn from respon
sibility in some cases by the assertion,
"It is certain that hundreds of colli
sions have resulted from the air
brakes being inoperative." This is a
favorite explanation offered by news
paper reporters and sometimes by
trainmen in order to cover up their
carelessness or errors of judgement,
but we believe that it is very rarely if
ever true, and we are surprised that
ou" correspondent should make the
assertion. In talking the other day
with the engineer of a very fast train
in suburban service, which is required
to make numerous and quick stops,
he said in regard to the excuse that
had been given for a recent accident,
namely, that "the brakes failed to
work," that he did not see how this
could happen, and that in hisextended
experience it never happened. Of course
it is easy to understand that with a
slippery rail or when running at high
speed too near to the station, the air
brake may sometimes, be applied and
fail to stop the train at the desired
point, but this is the result of lack of
good sense or experience on the part
of the engine-runner, and is not to be
charged to the brake. We doubt if
Mr. Huntington or any of our readers
can present a well-authenticated in
stance of tho air-brakes actually "tail
ing to work" after they had been
properly tested and adjusted before
the train set out and were properly
handled bv the engineer. Of course
there are plenty of instances where the
air-brakes did not stop the train at
the desired point, but slippery rails,
poor brake shoes, faulty adjustment
of the leverage, or neglect to apply in
reasonable time or with reasonable
skill will be found to be t he actual rea
sons in the great majority of cases for
the undesired results which have fol
lowed. The brake, like every other
piece of mechanism, may be improper
ly handled and thus indirectly be the
cause of accidents, and what is needed
is more thorough education of all
trainmen in regard to the operation
of this device, and then more care and
good judgment in using it. Railway
A Clever Trick.
Place on the surface of the water
contained in a large glass bowl
several pieces of camphor of unequal
sizes, in such a manner as to form
the shape of an animal, for instance,
a lobster or a scorpion. After a while
the scorpion will begin to move itself
in the liquid; you will see it move its
legs as if it wanted to swim or agitate
its tail convulsively.
This experiment is very amusing
and inexpensive, and you will find
camphor in every household.
First. We will notice that our
scorpion swims on the water, but
partly submerged, which proves to
us that the density of the camphor is
nearly euqal to water.
Second. The animal does not
melt in the liquid camphor does
not dissolve in water but will in
Third. The several pieces compos
ing our scorpion remain placed where
we have put them, and adhere to one
another, which illustrates to us the
force known as cohesion.
Fourth. Finally, if the scorpion
moves readily in the water, the cause
of it is the well-known property of
camnhor to agitate itself on the sur
face of water, as a small piece of cam
tihor Dlaced in a tumbler of water will,
in a short time, move from one place
to another and turn upon itself.
These movements are due according
to some authorities, to the recoil pro
duced by the escape of vapors, by oth
ers to a mysterious lorce caned super
ficial tension, existina on the mirtace
Tha Swlsa Watch Trade.
TheEconomisto Franeais publishes
an interesting artkieupon the progress
of the Swi watch trade, which is des
cribed aa having undergone a complete
transformation within the last
year, this transformation being due
to the substitution of inanufacttiriea
for work in the homes of the watch
makers themselves. The opening t-f
these manufactories hat lea to a de
crease in the cost price of the watch
and to a preat increase in the sale, bo
much so that at the recent Paris Ex
hibition the official report of the inter-'
national jury was to the effect that
"Switzerland occupied the lirst rank
as regards chronometers, watches of
precision, and complicated works,
and has made great progress
in the domain of watches for
common use, this progress being
due to the improvement in the equip
ment of the manufactories. The differ
ent schools for teaching the watch
trade at Geneva, Neuchatel, la Cliaux
des Fonds, Loole, liienne, St. Imier,
and Porrentruy, the various astocia
tions of manufactories, and the jour
nalsdealing with the subject of watch
making have contributed in no small
degree to this progress, which haa
been very marked in the last six years;
the number of watches exported from
Switzerland having increased from
2,734,234 in 1885 to 4.431,301 last
year, these figures not including the
works and cases exported separately.
Altogether, the value of the exports
last year is calculated by the Econo
miste Franeais at 4.000,000, while
the wages are so high that many fam
ilies earn from 12 to 16 a month.
The Production of Very Low Tem
peratures. An apparatus has recently been
constructed by M. Pucretet forgetting
quickly in the laboratory a fall of
temperature 70 to 80 deg C. below
zero, by means of the expansion of
liquid carbonic acid. The inner of
two concentric vessels contains, in
alcohol, a serpentine metallic tube
communicating through a tube with
two stopcocks, with the carbonic acid
reservoir outside and opening below
into the annular space round tlie in
ner vessel, in which are some pieces of
sponge impregnated with alcohol.
This two-walled vessel with coil is en
closed in a box. One stopcock being
opened wide, the other slightly, the
carbonic acid passes through the coil
as snow, and turns to gas, with strong
cooling effect, and any of it not va
pourized in the coil is dissolved in tho
alcohol of the sponge. The gas es
capes through a tube passing through
the outer box.
An Odd LUht.
To instantly obtain a light sufficient
to read the time bv a watch or clock
at night without the use of matches,
and without the danger of setting
things on fire is an easy matter. Take
an oblong vial of the clearest of glass,
put into it apiece of phosphorous
about the size of a pea, upon this
pour some pure olive oil heated to the
boiling point; the bottle to be filled
about one-third full; then cork tightly.
To use the lieht. remove the cork, al
low the air to enter and then recork.
The whole empty space in the bottle
will then become luminous., and . the
light obtained will be a good one. As
soon as the light becomes dim its pow
er can be increased by opening the
bottle and allowing a fresh supply of
air to enter. In very cold weather it
is sometimes necessary to heat the
vial between the hands to increase the
fluidity of the oil, and one bottle will
last a winter. This ingenious contriv
ance may be carried in the pocket,
and is used by watchmen of Paris
all magazines where explosive or
flammable materials are stored.
A Table With Crowing Legs.
Under the heading "A Curiosity,"
the Montreal 'Daily Witness' publishes
the following letter from an Ontario
correspondent: "I had presented to
mo on the 3rd of May last a small
fancy table as a birthday present
painted black, varnished and gilded.
However, it had not been in the house
very long before the legs were observed
to be growing, and they are still con
tinuing to do so. One of the legs has
put out a shoot four inches long, upon
which there are ten leaves. Altogeth
er it is a very pretty table, with its
black and gold and now the green. I
think they are apple-tree leaves. I
set it out of doors occasionally, so
that a little moisture might be given
to it to continue the growth, as I do
not know but it may blossom and
bring forth fruit, which would very
much increase the curiosity."
Beware of Kisses.
Dogs, cats and men are liable to be
infected with dangerous, loathsome,
and sometimes disgraceful maladies,
which are in no way so apt to be com
municated as by the mouth. A phy
sician reports in the St. Louis Courier
of Medicine, a painful case of a young
married lady of unimpeachable char
acter, mysteriously infected, and ultimately-
exonerated only by tracing
the infection to a young man who,
unsuspected, had been allowed in the
habit of kissing her baby. The baby
had thus contracted the disease, and
communicated it to the young moth
er, to h'r infinite mortification and
peril of ciiaracter, to say nothing of
the most serious physical evil.

Where THey Come From.
Our Alliance friends are wondering
where all the marked copies of eastern
papers are coming from that have
boon flooding1 the coBntry with seduc
tive arguments to win them back to
their old political slavery. The fol
lowing from the Indhmapolis Sentinal
gives the solution of the matter:
"Mr. Clarkson's scheme for the sys
tematic and comprehensive circulation
of Republican newspapers is a legiti
mate one. It is a good deal better
than Buying' votes in "blocks of five,"
circulation of their papers."
The time for buying voters will find
as many if not more buyers thau ever
before, but why do not tho People's
party and tho various farming and
laboring organizations follow suit and
liberally sustain their zealous cham
pions of the reform press and send
their papers as broadcast over tho land
as possible? The struggling publishers
can not afford such an expense, but
every ono of the organizations should,
through tho agency of the Reform
Press Bureau, subscribe liberally to
ward sustaining such a plan of en
lightening those not yet educated to
