Continent, than of fat side pork, both

Allen in the Country Gentleman, to

tai?s the same, active in movement,
and completely free from all blugj-ish-nsss."
Swine destined for bacon ought to
have moderate exercise in the open
air. In summor a gras i or clover pas
ture with pure water running in it is
preferable; in winter a dry yard with
warm, room, well bedded pens at
tached for shelter whenever desired by
the animal to resort to them.
For feed, aside from pasture, give
wheat bran or shorts, or oat or barley
meal, as required, mixed with a pint
to a quart of flaxseed or cottonseed
' meal, according to the size of. the ani
mal, niornshg' and night. Early in
autumn add supar beets or other roots,
or pumpkins, as much as will be eaten;
and three to four weeks before slaugh
ter, give Indian corn cr maul, from
one-third to one-half the proportion of
their other food. More of this grain
should not be used, as it wvtld tend
to make the flesh too fat
The lato opening of European mar
kets for our hog products will require
an immense additional quantity of
live and dead meat to supply them a
rich boon to our farmers, of which
v they should make haste to take advan
tage. Swine of medium size are de
cidedly preferable, and cheapest and
quickest to breed and rear. These
may be grown suitable for market in
nine to twelve months' lime from
birth. This is bo much faster than
rearing cattlo. that it enables small
farmers and those possessing little
capital to go into the business as well
and as profitably as those of much
larger meanB; in fact, gives the poor
man as good a chance to gain a fair
percentage in his occupation as the
In regard to the best breed of swine
which is possessed in America to pro
duce choice bacon and hams, the
Berkshire is superior, as he turns out
the largest percentage of tender, lean,
juicy meat His nearly equal, per
haps, is the Duroo or Jersey Red, or
what is called the Tam worth in Eng
land. This is supposed to be descended
from the old unimproved Berkshires
of the present day, for some of them
are nearly spoiled by breeders in the
quality of their shoulders, hams and
side-pieces. They have shortened the
head, length and depth of the body,,
given them a pug-nose and fat jowls
like the Chinese, and fed them almost
entirely on corn. The result is that
the largest percentage of the fleeh is
fat, instead of tender, lean, juicy meat,
totally unfit for bacon. All such breed
ing should be stopped at once, not
only in Berkshires, but other classes
of swine that are reared expecting to
make bacon of them.
Most of the portraits of swine ap
pearing in our agricultural papers are
of this very fat shape mere carica
tures of what a good bacon animal
should be, and the additional misfor
tune is added at the shows of agricul
tural societies in appointing judges
who know nothing of the desirable
points necessary to form suitable bacon
animals, and the result is prizes are
awarded to unsuitable animals, .to
the injury of breeding good ones that
will sell more quickly a', a higher

The progress of ideas as connected
with farm practices is far more rapid
than farmers get credit for as the
workgoes along, says the Texas Live
gtook Journal. We have only to look
back over a few years of time to learn
that great changes in methods and
practices have taken place and have
settled down into the position of com
mon practice. This change has been
very marked in the business of grow
ing and fattening beef. This change
is more plainly illustrated in the West
with their large operations, though the
change has taken place here as well as
there. It was but a few years ago
that it was the general understanding
that an animal must be four years old
or more before it was fitted for the
butcher and for the consumer. Pro
fessor anborn showed that a pound
of growth could be made on less food
and at far less cost on a growing ani
mal than on an old one; in fuel; that it
wa3 a law of growth that the younger
the animal the greater the growth per
day, and the less food per day callod
for. He further showed to the satis
faction of all feeders that the growth
of tters the third year and later on
did not pay its way. The Chicago fat
stock show soon adopted the then re
markable plan of offering no prizes on
beef cattle so old as four years, thus
taking the ground that there should
be no encouragement given to keeping
fleers up to that age. Growers soon
caught up with the idea and came to
accept the action as wise and proper.
Scab on Fruit Trees,
To prevent the scab on fruit trees
the Ohio experiment station recom
mends the following:
Formula No. 1. Copper sulphate,
4 pouiiAn lime, 4 pounds; water, 1
Formula No. 2 Copper sulphate, 4
pounds; parls green, 4 pounds; water,
1 barrel.
No. 1 is used for apple and pear
scab and to prevent the leaves of plum
and pear trees from dropping prema
turely; also for raspberry cane scab
or anthracnosa Apply once before
the leaves open and about three
times thereafter. Not to be used on
plums and early fruits later than i
Jul 1. Tt Is net Bcsr7 to use it
on sny fruit later than August 1. It
should cot be used on raspberries after
the blossoms open and car should M
taken to direct the spray to the young
growth and avoid the old canes after
the first application.
No. 2 is used on the pear, apple,
plum and cherry trees after the blos
soms fall for the purpose of destroy
ing insect. . On plum and cherry, trees
the applications should be made once
in two weeks, and oftener if the weath
er is rainy, up to within six weeks of
the ripening time. For the last appli
cation on these fruits, it would be well
to dilute the mixture one-half, or
more, so as to avoid lime coating; or
the following may be substituted:
Paris green 2 ox., copper carbonate
2 oz. ; dissolve in three pints of am
monia; add one-half pound lime and
one barrel of water.

A noted butter maker who lives 600
miles wet of New York, said to the
writer, "I now no longer use ice in
butter making, relying upon an abun
dauce of cold spring water, and have
stopped working orer butter; packing
at the time of churning, and my but
ter now ViKicbca New York in fine con
dition, which it would not do when it
was iced and re-worked. I believe
that it is a positive injury to re-work
butter, if it is to be kept any lei.gth
of time." An out west expert lays
it down that "letting butter set" and
then re-working it does injure the
grain of the butter, and any injury
causes it to more quickly go off flavor. "
There is much to be understood about
these disputed points. lias the grain
been broken down and injured, or is
it simply pressing out more moisture?
The, dryer butter having this shiny
look, owing to the absence of a cer
tain amount of moistura and the
"stick" or salvy quality arises from
the same causa. Is it not a fact that
butter when worked should bo submit
ted to pressure, rather than subject
ing it to the operations of any machine
that has rollers or levers with sharp
edges, or a eutting process of working.
The butter should have its buttermilk
washed out and the surplus moisture
pressed out That these cornered
level's and fluted rollers should be used
very little, if any, in butter making,
is the opinion of the dairy editor ol
the Practical Farmer.

A mess of bran is always beneficial.
Bran contains more phosphates and
mineral matter than ground grain,
and it also assists in regulating the
bowels, especially when a small quan
tity of linseed meal is given with it
but in the summer season a mess three
times a week may be-allowed only. It
may be fed by scalding it and feeding
it in a trough, or it may be sprinkled
over potatoes or turnips, cooked. No
other grain food need be given if bran
is used in the summer season, if the
fowls have a range. In fact no grain
is necessary at all; but should such
food be given, let it be bran. Farm

Farm Note
Sheep give back to the soil as much as
they take from it. More, indeed, since it
is a well known fact that they enrich th
pastures in which thoy feed. ,
"Farming for a living" is a poor way.
Make a business of it. Head, study,
think, experiment, practice. Tho way to
make a success of anything is to be earnest
and energetic, and to learn as much about
it as circumstances will permit, and then
to put into practice all that you learn.
The broad-headed horses are the clever
est. In the army cavalry the horses with
broad foreheads learn their drill mora
quickly than others. A gentleman meas
ured the heads of all his hunters, and
found that their intelligence and good
s?nse was in proportion to the width ol
thoir foreheads.
If all those who hare made money with
sheep were to give the reason for their
success, they would say that the duel
factor was the cars they gave the flock.
Successful sheepmen are a unit in saying
that no matter what breed is kept or for
what purpose kept painstaking care in
great and small things is the only way to
make Sheep husbandry prolltable.
Many a man is farming a half sectioned
land, who, if he put tho sami energy and
same amount of work on an eighty, or at
most a quarter section, would take a great
deal more pleasure in living and every
year lay by more of this world's goods, to
insure rest when stilt joints and weak
ened muscles make rest grateful to the
most industrious. Among the many
things which havo conspired to make farm
ing unprofitable in the past the practice
of running a large farm has been one ot

from an eonum'.o or poMtirnl point of
view, ssjrs Prol E. J. James in bis
address be'ore the economic sectlou of
the American association, by boiittUng
or deriding the views of western farm
ers on the money que.tioa. on the
tariff, or on railroad policy, taxation,
and other topio.
The American farmer has a griev
ance a real and true grievance one
that will not become less by pooh-poohing
it but one that must be.crj-efully
studied by students of economics and
statistics to ascerta'n. it passible, how
far it is justified and whether it can be
remedied, and if so bj what means.
As a matter of fact the wealth of
the I'n.tod States Is flowing away from
its forms into factories and railroads;
from the country into the city; from
the rural into the urban districts.
The policy of our railroad companies
has borne hard upon the individual
farmer and upon the farmers as a
class. It has altered all the conditions
of agriculture in many sections of the
country, and in nearly all of ihem
in such a way as needlessly to burden
and embarrass the farmer.
Our system of taxation rests most
heavily upon him; and there U no
doubt that the financial policy of the
the country, including the whole a? s
tem of monetary transactions built up
by the combination of governmontal
and private initiatives, discriminates
directly and keenly against the farmer
and farming class, by discriminating
in favor of other classes.
Nor can it be said that the tariff
policy of the country has been man
aged as much to the farmer's interest
as to that of other classes. The way
to improvement lies, in the first place,
in the direction of altering these ad
Terse influences,.
This policy, however, is merely pal
liative, and does not go to tho root of
the matter. The forces that are
crowding the American farmer to tho
wall are world wide.

The attitude of capital toward labor
is a gigantic blunder because Is is op

Signs of tbe TUnea.
One of the most striking and con
vincing facts of the solidity of the Al
liance that impresses a reader of as
large exchange list as the Herald pos
sesses, is the remarkable change In
tone, style and expression of the Alli
ance papers of the union. One year
ago most of them seemed to be feeling
their way to secure a prudent and cau
tious position on the Alliance demands
from which they could repel attacks
easily and without danger of much of
a conflict Now the sume papers, with
hundreds of others added to them, are
so bold, aggressive and anxious for a
fight on tho demands, that one can al
most fancy that he can seo tbe editor
prancing around bis sanctum begging
some fellow that opposes the Alliance
to please step on his coat-tail and
accommodate him with a discussion
on anything about the Alliance. This
change illustrates tho prevailing sen
timent among Alliance men. Tho
more the demands are discussed, the
stronger they appear. The more
they are studied the deeper the con
viction that each and all of them
aro not only right and just but the
very best that could be adduced as an
answer to the problem the condition
of the people presents. The fact, that
the opposition does not attack the
great principles involved in these de
mands, and the equity and justice of
tho basis upon which they rest shows
that tho conviction is also pressing its
way into them that this answer, or
something better, must be assured in
the policy of the government No
other plan or policy seeks to answer
the questions, how shall tho three
billions indebtedness of the farmers
be wiped out? How shall the country
be furnished a safe currency on a
solid basis? How shall that currency
be made sufficiently large to meet the
demands of the countryP How shall
trusts and combines bo destroyed?
How shall robber syndicates be an
nihilated? How shall railroad barons
be stopped in their robberies
by watering stocks and bonds
and exacting exorbitant tolls from
the people? How shall tho
people be raised from the slough of
despondency and dispair and be placed
on the high road to prosperity and in
dependence? TheOcala demands an
swer those questions. That is what they
were formulated to meet to answer
the problem the situation presents. It
is the only answer offered that bos
any practical or possible chance of
success, even if all that is claimed for
it should be accomplished Those
who are studying these questions are
becoming stronger and more zealous
in this faith. The country is fnst
realizing tho justice and equity of tho
demands, and the people are growing
in tbe faith and becoming more earn
est and zealous in pressing them. Let
every Alliancnman feel encouraged
and know that his causo is daily grow
ing In strength and tho principles and
policies it embodies aro founded on
justice and equity and that God Is on
the tide of the right Alliance Herald,

In Lafcadlo Iljara's paper in the
Atlunllo, -The Chief City of the
Province of the Gods," be describes a
Japanese flower show. He writes:
Often in tbe streets at night espe
cially on the nights of sacred festivals
(matsuri), one's attention will be at
tracted to some small booth by the
spectacle of an admiring and perfectly
silent crowd preselajf before it As
soon as one can got a chance to look
one finds there is nothing to look at
but a few vases containing sprays
of flower or, perhaps, some
light gracious branches freshly cut
from a blossoming trco. It is simply
a little flower show, or, mora correct
ly, a free exhibition of master skill in
the arrangement of flowers. For the
Japanese do not brutally chop off
flower beads to work them up into
meaningless masses of color, as we
barbarians do thoy love nature too
well for that; they know how much
t natural charm of the flower
depends upon its setting and mount
ing, its relation to leaf and stem, aud
thoy select a single graceful
branch or spray just as nature made
it At first you will not as a western
stranger, comprehend such an exhibi
tion at all; you are yet a savage in
such matters compared with the com
monest coolies about you. But even
while you are still wondeuing at popu
lar interest in this simple little show
the charm of it will begin to grow
upon you, will become a revelation to
you; and dosplto your occidental Id.a
of self-superiority you will fool hum
bled by the discovery that all flower
displays you have ever soon abroad
were only monstrosities in comparison
with the exquisite natural beauty of
those few simple spray. You will
also observe how much the white or
pale blue screen behind the flowers
enhances the effect by lamp or lantern
light For the screen has been ar
ranged ' with the special purpose of
showing tho exqulslteness of plant
shadows, and the sharp silhouottes of
sprays and blossoms cast thereon are
beautiful beyond the imagining of any
western decorative artist

Fair Warning From a Burslar.
F,obert D. White, of Goorgetown,
DeL, lately recelvod a letter from a
party calling himself a professional
burglar, signifying his intention of
entering tho attorney's houso six
months from date and carrying ol
what valuables he can safely take.
He says his intentions are merely bur
glary, and that no arson, murder or
other crimes will bo attempted. Tho
burglar coolly admits in his lengthy
epistle that it is not' customary with
him to notify his subscribers of his
actions. Ho says ho knows that if he is
caught it may be three years, to stand
one hour in the pillory and rocoivo
twenty lashes, as did John Cummins,
the Baltimore burglar.
The writer continues: "I sa
John Cummins wipped at New Castie
yesterday with twenty lashes. It is a
very barbarous institution, and I can
dofy such a barbarism and llkowiso
your law. I want to make a daring
burglary in this stato, and show you
you aro powerless to arrest a burglar
of first class, I am leaving Wilming
ton for the West and will return by
the lino of Dolmar and Georgetown.
So I select your city as the first ploco
to operate. I will show the people of
Delaware that thoro is no danger of
arrest as long as the polico of Paris,
London, Chicago and Baltimore could
not arrest mo. I m,:an to kenp my

Hear what Jay Gould's es'.iruato of
4 farmer legislator is:
"I can buy the vote of a farmer
member of the legislature for the price
of a bull calf," say about seven dollars
and a hair.
He says again: "I can hire one
half the farmers of the United Stutos
to shoot the other half to deuth."
Farmers are cheap according to Jay
Gould's no: ion. They always will be
cheap in the eyes of these men until
tbey have the manhood to staud out on
ini'.epeudent ground. The Sentinel.
