Mr. John W Bookwalter owns 60,
000 acres of land in Nebraska, and he
proposes to undertake the establish
ment of a modern Utopia upon it.
mi 1 1 - 1 . "
J.ne pian consists tn a colonization oi
the farmers in a village that he will
build,' and that will contain schools,
churches, halls of entertainment,
libraries, etc. He thinks the present
farm life is one of privation, and he
expects , to furnish his farmer colon
ists with all the advantages of the
towns. The practical farmer can see
many obstacles in the way of a suc
cessful working of this plan. It is, of
course, slightly modeled after the
European farming village, butthecon
ditions in America, especially in the
'est, are not favorable to it.
The American farmer, on relatively
cheap land, and raising low-priced
products, must work with machinery,
and thus till large tracts. Under these
circumstances very few 'could have
farms '-lose enough to a proposed vil
lage to permit of their making homes
in it. Western farming is, and of
necessity must be, on a rather exten
sive scale that will not permit of a
concentration of the people. In a
country where land is higli because
the demand for its products is great,
small, tracts given up to vegetable
farming, and furnishing more oppor
tunity for labor than 50 times its ex
tent in our Western land, adapted to
grain farming, will permit village farm
ing, but we predict its failure for the
present in our country.
Osage orange hedge fences are unde
sirable. The weight of testimony is
against them. Some farmers are still
planting them, but for every such one
there are five who are digging them
out. For the first 10 years the, pros
pect for a good fence is bright. It con
tinues to thicken, and when well kept,
is not too high to be easily trimmed.
This is the case when the trimming has
been done three or four times a year.
But the stubs are left an inch or two
longer at every trimming, and in time
the old wood must be cut down a foot
or twe, ard this is an exasperating
piece of work. The trimming must be
done each time just before the thorns
harden, no matter how much other
work presses. A little delay makes
serious trouble. But all this could be
endured if the hedge made a trust
worthy fence. It gives fine promise,
but soon after it reaches a condition
of trustworthiness hog holes and
breaks begin to appear in it. It re
quires constant mending, and is never
sale, it roDs tne ear in oi pianc iooa
and becomes a nuisance. Notwith
standing the work of uprooting a
hedge fence, a very few possessors of
hedges over 10 or 15 years old are
willing to let them stand unless they
are farmers who have ceased to trim
them and are careless of the appear
ance of their farms.' Other kinds of
fences are more satisfactory every
The poultry-Keeper says: "The
fact that the cross-bred birds lay
soft-shelled eggs is conclusive evidence
that they are over-fat. It shows also
that cross-bred birds are more liable
i to take on fat than the pure breeds.
Instead of rendering them delicate, it
is evidence that they require less food,
and that they have partially been
changed from being prolific layers to
meat producers. This tendency to
take on fat by cross-bred birds is the
cause of persistent setters, and we
are confirmed by every experiment in
out claim that when hens become fat
they are more aptto become broody."
If this authority is correct, it would
appear that our farmers who keep
liens for em are making a mistake in
r I'rnsKinff rnmr hocks ns mum as is
. common. When new ;blood is intro
duced it should be from the same
breed. All this may be usually true,
but there are some cross-bred flocks
that are great egg producers.
Authorities agree that the variation
in the color of the yolk of eggs is due
neither to the breed of the hens nor
their age, but to the coloring matter
of the food consumed. The richness
or the paleness of the color so often
noted does not qualify any more
than the annatto used to color butter
indicates its quality. In times of
drouth or late in the season, when
plants lose their bright color, eggs
have paler yolks. Clover or corn-fed

Feeding Pumpkins to Hogs.
The National Stockman says: "The
farmer who is so fortunate as to have
a good supply of pumpkins h;:s a
valuable food in them as a part ra
tion for his fattening hogs. It is
claimed by some that hogs will latten
on them as their only food. We
would not care to risk the statement
so far as to undertake to fit a lot' of
hogs for market with them. We
would feed as many each day as the
hogs would eat up clean and then give
them all the corn they could consume
besides. Young hogs with a ration of
pumpkins each day will stand a much
longer feeding of corn than they would
if fed corn alone. It is a wasteful way
of feeding, to throw out enough corn
or pumpkins, or both at one time, to
last the hogs two or three days. Their
food should be given to them sweet
and clean at least twice a day."
Another plan of feeding pumpkins
to hogs that has boen found to pro
duce excellent results, is to begin
early in the fall, when the fattening
hogs are in the pasture lot; give them
all they can eat as long as the supply
lasts, then begin with the corn.
Pumpkins alone will fatten hogs
. quite rapidly, but the pork from such
( feeding is soft and undesirable, and
needs a finishing with corn to make it
Pumpkins am cheaper than corn-
besides being a specially health-giving
food, hence the lat and flesh added in
the beginning is inor economically
produced and the profits proportion
Usefulness of a Trotting Hons.
A San Francisco paper informs its
readers that a trotting horse is very
useful outside the track, and asserts
that "on the road he is great; on the
farm he does the work of a mule, plow
ing, harrowing and hauling heavy
loads;" while in the cities "he pulls
butcher carts, milk wagons, buggies,
carriages, omnibuses and express
wagons." Possibly the trotting horse
can do the "work of a mule." He may
be able to draw the plow and to haul
heavy loads, - and draw omnibuses
and express wagons, but it is certain
if he does this kind of work he will
soon be spoiled for trotting. A trott
ing horse may be a fine roadster, but
some of the very points which give him
excellence in this direction manifestly
unfit him for use on a farm, orfor any
other heavy and long-continued work.
We believe that, within certain limits,
there is such a thing as a "general
purpose" horse, but we do not be
lieve that the lines can be spread far
enoueh to include an animal that will
also be adapted to perform general
farm work or draw heavy loads over
the city pavements.
- French Way of Fattening Fowls.
The writer has often been asked
about the French method of stuffing
birds in the forced fattening process
which is in vogue somewhat in the
east and might be worked just as pro
fitably in Denver. The modus, oper
andi is simple enough. There is an in
strument consisting of a rod, a piston
and a treader, with a long slender
tube attached. ! The fowl that is to
be fed is held by the machine, the tube
is inserted down its gullet and a man
turns the treadle with his foot. By
this pedal movement the feeder is set
in motion, and gently as a nurse
would force a tonic down a sick man's
throat, the stuff is inserted into the
bird. All the time this cramming op
eration is going on the fowls are kept
in pens and no other kind of "vituals
or drink" is given them. They wax
fat on the treatment. By this pro
cess the flesh of the fowl can be flav
ored to any taste a customer desires,
and it becomes as soft and sweet as a
capon's. The result is more than
anything else like the poularde of the
French markets. Field and Farm.
For weaning ' colts provide a good
box stall large enough for a number
to be weaned. Feed them in it for n
week or more, so they will get used to
it. See that their manners and feed
boxes are in order before commencing,
and provide a good vessel to hold
water for the night, as it will require
two or three gallons per head each
night; A large iron kettle has rend
ered good service in my barn. Cleanse
the vessel once in every 24 hours, as
colts prefer the water fresh and clean.
Having lived mostly on liquid food
for five months, then turning sudden
ly to solid, the youngsters need some
thing to moisten it. By having
water within their reach they will
drink little and often, which will do
them more good than larger quantU
ties farther apart. Confining a wean
ling in his stall from four in the even
ing until seven the next morning, or
15 hours, is too long to have them do
Farmers have been slow to learn
that they cannot aflord to burn
straw. IE it is not wanted for feed it
should be rotted and returned to the
soil. Its analysis does not show a
high manurial value, as it contains
much carbon that is not valued as a
manure, but herein may we be led
astray by the tables and theory. Its
mechanical effect on all soils that are
inclined to pack is great. It lightens
and warms up the soil, and lets the
air in to feed the roots. It is a good
absorbent, and should be used freely
in the stalls, when not wanted for feed.
Return all straw to the soil either in
form of animal manure or in its
usual form after rotting.
Cleanliness In the Dairy
A creamery man writes: "Thechurn,
butter worker and all utensils that

be washed first with hot water and
soap and good soap, too, not com

will take off all butter or grease, but
will not thoroughly cleanse the uten

stance in the soap itself, and .to over
come this rinse with boiling water.
Cold water alone will not dq, as it will
cause a very small portion of the soap
which has been dissolved in the suds
to harden and remain on the utensil."

CLEVER AND INGENIOUS INVEN
TIONS FOR MAN'S BRAIN.
Mr. Edison's New Motor Opium as
Tuberculosis . Curative-
What a Modern Gun Can
Do Ammonia En
gines. Opium as a Tuberoulosls Curative.
One of the latest of those experi
mental remedies in cases of tuberculo
sis has just been promulgated by Dr.
John Gordon Dill, Assistant Physi
cian to the Sussex County- Hospital,
England. He suggests modified opium
smoking and mentions several cases
which have come under his personal
observation where the treatment ha
been used with considerable success.
Dr Dill wishes it to be understood
that he does not claim opium smoking
to be in any sense a cure for consump
tion, but simply that it is m valuable
palliative which may be of service in
the treatment of the disease.' Dr. Dill
uses, as hetalls it, medicated tobacco.
That is, the tobacco is soaked in a
preparation containing all thecompo
nent parts of opium in fluid form,
about 50 per cent stronger than laud
anum. The tobacco is dried .thor
oughly before using. In advocating
this mixture of opium he is fully alive
to the danger which may result in
prescribing the drug for medicinal
purposes and upon this point ex
presses himself as follows:
"We certainly do not inject an un
known poison into the system to
work its wicked will, independent of
our control, but, on the other hand,
we maybe the means of introducing a
moral poison, the terrible nature of
which can only be realized by those
who have hadthe painful task of try
ing to cure a victim of the opium
habit, and for this reason I have never
allowed my patients to know what
they are smoking, merely calling it
The mixture was found to have its
most efficient strength when one ounce
of tobacco was saturated in three
fluid drachms of the liquid. The pa
tient was advised not to smoke just
before eating. The most marked ef
fects of opium smoking in this way
are that it eases the cough and assists
in expectoration. Dr. Dill is careful
to say that he is not yet sufficiently
prepared to drop any conclusions as
to whether opium administered in this
form has any specific effect upon the
disease, although almost without ex
ception tho patients who have
made use of this ' treatment have
thought that they derived great bene
fit from it.
Dr. Dill got his idea of employing
opium from the Chinese, having ascer
tained that in certain districts of that
country where tuberculosis was ex
tremely prevalent, theopium-smoking
population were almost exempt from
the malady, and this led him to try
the effect of a mixture of opium and
tobacco upon a number of his pa
tients. Mr. Edison's New Motor.
Much interest is shown among
electrical experts regarding Thomas
A. Edison's ideas and inventions in
electric railroading, and especially in
applying electricity as a motive power
to street cars. When questioned on
the subject T. C. Martin editor of tho
Electrical Engineer, said:
I note that Mr. Edison speaks of
dispensing with overhead trolley
wires and all direct connections be
tween the electric motor and its source
of current. It should not be forgot
ten that as far back as 1880, at Men
lo Park, Mr. Edison ran an electric
railway which had no overhead
In other words, he carried the cur
rent to the two rails of the track, one
of the rails being thus mado positive
and the other negative or "return."
, The motor on the car was in multiple,
bo to speak, between these rails. The
car used to travel at a lively gait on
: a three or four mile track. There are
' difficulties, however, in applying this
j plan to a city street car track, for the
reason that tne two raus mignt oe
bridged electrically sometimes by
other things than the passing car, and
then there would be trouble. One way
to obviate this is to throw the current
into successive sections of the track
by means of electro-magnetic devices
operated by the car itself. Perhaps
Mr. Edison is working in that direction.
There is, however, another way of
doing this thing, and it is not unlikely
that Mr. Edison is looking at that al
so. I mean the utilization of the alter
nating current. If this current were
used, it could be "picked up" induc
tively, without any connection what
ever with the track not even by the
wheels and then could be "convert
ed" for use in the motor on the car.
This method is still in the future, but
you will see it worked out as surely as
the sun rises. On the whole, it is more
likely that Mr. Edison, by way of re
laxation from 50 other inventions,
has been harking back to some of the
schemes he tried on that historic old
electric road at Menlo Park.
New Lakes on Mars.
There is one point of view from
which the formation of a new lake in
Southern California by the over
flowing of a sandy desert with water
from the Colorado River possesses
peculiar interest. It may throw
light upon some of the mysterious
changes that have occurred upon the
Mars. Near the equator of Mars there
is a region which has been believed to
be part dry land of that planet, and
which has been named Lybia by
the Italian astronomer Schiapar-elli-
But a few years ago a change occur
red in the color of "Lybia," and some
of the observers thought that it must
have been suddenly overflowed with
water, since it had assumed the color
characteristic of the other regions of
Mars that are supposed to be water
covered. Other similar changes have beeu
seen by telescopists on Mars.
Now that a uew lake has actually
been formed on the earth by the un
expected hllina up with water of a
depressed area of dry land those who
believe that a similar occurrence, on
a larger scale, has taken place on
Mars will probably be strengthened in
that interesting opinion.
"Inventors" of ammonia engines
are pretty sure to find plenty to ltstrtj
to their schemes, as witness the fol
lowing from The Press:
J. II. Campbell, the inventor of the
engine, said: "1 believe that the most
skeptical engineer would acknowledge
an economy in ammonia if lie were to
pursue this course: Substitute water
(or ammonia in the generator, and in
all other ways work the- water steam
just as we work the gas. The engine
that is now making 100 revolutions
and propelling this boat against the
tide twelve miles per hour would then
drop to fifty revolutions, and would
make about four miles an hour. There
is an economy in running an ammonia
engine that is seldom thought of, that
is, the readiness with which it accom
modates itself to the different speeds
of an engine or to the different loads.'
Other than the economy of 50 per
cent, of fuel, the advantages of the i
ammonia engine are a saving of all
the cylinder oil, 05 per cent, ot the
water required for the boiler, a boiler
always clean, no care as to the sup
ply of water for the boiler, and great
er comlort for the fireman, as rapid
firing is not required."
A New Frenoh Cruiser.
The French cruiser "Coetlogon,"
which has just completed her official
trials at Brest, is of the same type as
the French cruisers "Surcouf" and
"Forbin," and only a trifle smaller
than the "Lalande "Troude." and
"Cosmos," which have a displacement
of 1,877 tons. In the trials which
took place during the past fortnight
she failed to quite reach her contract
speed of 10 1-2 knots; but as she at
tained a speed on the two hours' run
of 19 3-10 knots with 124 revolutions
she is to be accepted, subject to the
penalty for not coming up to the stip
ulated speed. Both the "Surcouf,"
which was built at Cherbourg, and
the "Forbin," built at Rochefort, on
their trials obtained ; considerably
higher speeds, that of the formor being
20.51 knots with 133 revolutions,
and that of the latter 20.63 with 13(1
revolutions. The "Coetlogon" has a
length of 311 12 feet, a breadth of
30 1-2 feet, and a mean draught of 14
feet. Her displacement is 1,848 tons.
It is wonderful, the amount of effort
of the world that is given to building
great war-ships whose purpose is to
A Singular Ootlcal Effect.
A curious optical effect has recently
been the subject of a note to the
Academie des Sciences, Paris, by M.
Mascart, the well-known physicist.
When we look fixedly at a white back
ground uniformly lighted and a black
object, rapidly crosses the field of view,
the background will appear darker in
the rear of the object, and the end of
the "shadow," as we may caii it,
where the background recovers its
true whiteness, is seen to be tinged
with red. M. Mascart explains the
effect by the established fact that the
eye takes time to recover from the
darkening due to the passage of the
black object. There is a physiological
retardation; and the red tinge is ac
counted for by the eye being more sen
sitive to the red or long waves of light
than to the green. According to a
rough estimate the retardations of th
lumin6us impression is about l-25tb
of a second, and the red rays are
about 1-1 00th second in advance of
the total radiance or white lightl
What a Modern Gun Can Do.
Unless one is actually brought into
business relations with the great
science of modern warfare, it is difficult
to conceive of the terrible power of
the latest and largest guns. These
engines of destruction, weighing 110
tons, hurl u projectile of solid steel 10
inches in diameter and nearly 4 leec
long at a velocity of 2,079 feet a
second. When tested recently, one of
these guns sent a shot through 20
inches of steel armor, 8 inches of
iron, 20 feet of oak, 5 feet of granite,
11 feet of concrete, and 3 feet of buck.
Comparatively, a locomotive weigh
ine 200.000 pounds would have to
spin along the tracks at a rate of 135
miles an hour to strike a blow equal
to that proiectile. Think of the
damage wrought in a railroad collis
ion where the train speeds along at
the rate of 30 miles an hour, and one
may calculate the destructiveness of
modern ordnance. Boston Traveler
A Steel Chimney.
In order to economize space and
weight steel is being used for the con
struction, at the Chicago Exhibition,
of a chimney, which, when completed,
will be 20ft. high, with an outside di
ameter of 9ft. 5in. The steel varies in
thickness from 5-22in. at tho top to
3-8in. at the bottom. The lower
part of the chimney is lined with fire
brick eicht inches deep, formed to fit
the shell compactly all round. Above
this hollow tile is used. The weight
of a brick chimney of this size would
be almost 700 tons, while in steel it
will weigh, including the linings, a lit
tle less than 250 tons. The outside
diameter of the chimney is Oft. 5in.,
whereas had it been constructed of
brick it would be 10ft. 6in., a great
saving of space being thus effected.
The Speed of Projectiles.
The chronograph of Le Boulenge,
which is used in the French Army for
determining the speed of projectiles,
is, with some modification by Captain
Holden, R. A., being manufactured by
Mr. Pitkin, 56, Red Lion-street, Clerk

distance from each other, and the pro
jectile in traversing them cuts asunder
an electric wire in each. The current

A New Propello..
A new way of propelling ships has
been invented by Thomas Mills, of
Charters Town, Queensland, and was
recently brought before the Clyde
shipbuilders by a demonstration with
a model ship, nearly five feet long, on
the St. Vincent Pond, Glasgow. Mr.
Mills places the propellor at the bow,
instead of the stern, and makes it
conical, with a diameter nearly equal
to the beam cf a ship. The blades ol
the propellor are fixed at right angles
to the surface and arranged spirally,
They have thus a boring or auger
action. The inventor proposes to
apply the device to a large steamer.
