If you find your salt in the salt bag

there be whipped cream for the straw,

1,500 families in the adjoining district
agreed to discourage the custom. Men

many things which appeal to the un

more than they did to the formalists by
whom she was surrounded. At the first
state dinner after her marriage she
horrified the court women by taking off
her gloves. One of them remonstrated
because It was a deviation from the
rules. But the empress promptly set
tled that objection by saying that the
deviation should henceforth be the rule.
The court women had another blow
when the empress insisted on wearing a
pair of boots a month or more. The
rules had required an empress to wear
her shoes only once. "Just think," said
an American girl, "of being always In
a state of breaking In a new pair of
shoes! No wonder the poor woman re

hats, and thus the feather will serve

From American Agriculturist: There
is evidently a profitable field open for
orchardlsts, as for farmers, in growing
quinces. One thing about fruit growing
of any kind Is that too many trees for
home use or for the local market and
not enough for shipment under con
tract with city dealers Is an unhappy
medium to strike. Take into consider
ation what use Is to be made of the
fruit and plant trees to meet that end.
Quince trees are very hardy, take up
less room than any other trees, unless
it be the plums, and are easy to pro
pagate. Yearling trees are best, but
two or even three-year-olds bear trans
planting admirably. Trees fruit the
foourth year. .Well-rooted scions, oi
side shoots, may be taken off and set
out each year. They will make fine
trees. This self-propagation is decided
ly in its favor, as from a few quinc
trees bought from the nursery an or
chard may be established. -
Quince orchards are comparatively
rare, when they should be given a
place upon farms In all sections. Even
a few trees are profitable, small and
large orchards proportionately more so.
The fruit has ever been considered one
of the most valuable of all kinds for
Jelly making, preserving and canning.
In fact, the quince Is an ideal fruit
for housekeepers. It ripens at the
close of summer and beginning of' au
tumn, wW.-n the rush of summer work
is over. Housekeepers have time to
handle quinces then, and, as the heat of
summer is over, the preserves, Jellies
and canned fruit are sure to keep 'well.
The edible qualities of the quince are
not so much to speak of In the un
cooked state, but the flavor and quality
when cooked cannot be surpassed. It
Is sugary and sweet.
There Is no cure for heaves, as the
disease Is caused by structural changes
In the air cells of the lungs, but Indi
gestion very frequently accompanies
the disease, and that can be relieved by
proper feeding of sound, clean oats,
good, coarse whole wheat bran and fine
upland meadow hay chaff, which should
be free from dust, dampened and
sprinkled over with table salt. Once or
twice a week, says Farm, Stock and
Home, a mash should be made of the
feed and a pint of flaxseed meal added
to It. This will soften the contents of
the bowels and tend to prevent In
digestion before it becomes chronic as
well as the heaves. Watering is an
other Item to be attended to In these
troubles. Water should be given half
an hour before feeding, never on top of
breakfast, dinner or supper. When you
do this you wash -the food out of the
stomach before the gastric Juices have
prepared for the first process of diges
tion. This produces Indigestion. Af
fected horses should not be allowed
loose hay, only hay chaff of fine quality
mixed with bran and oats and given
dampened. This diet often brings bo
much relief as to seem to effect a cure,
and Is one that Is sometimes recom
mended by the sellers of heave reme
dies, and the alleged cure gets all the
From Farmers Voice: If trees are
lone and slender or are rather large for
transplanting, it will nearly always pay
to set a good, stout stake Dy tnem to
nrevent the wind from swaying them
around and loosening the roots. The
tree should be wrapped with some soft
material when It Is tied to the stake, In
order to prevent the cord from Injuring
the bark. The best time to attend to
this Is when the tree is set out. Be sure
that the stake is set firm, so that it will
be a support to the trees rather than
make the tree a support for the stake.
So far as can be avoided trees or
plants should not be left out of the
ground with the roots exposed to wind
or sun. The drying of the roots by
such exposure Is very Injurious to the
vitality of the trees. If the trees come
and cannot be set out Immediately, the
hotter Dlan In every way Is to heel them
In carefully so as to keep the roots
molBt, and then when ready to set out
take un but a few trees at a time, and
even then It will not be a bad plan to
have an old piece of carpet or a tow
sack kept wet and spread over the
roots so as to protect them until they
are put In the ground. If by any
means In shipping the trees get delay
ed, so that when they arrive they are
dry, the safest and best plan Is to bury
the whole tree under the ground, cover
ing completely, letting remain two or
three days. If, after doing this, they do
not resume their natural condition, It
Is a waste of labor to set them out An
other plan Is to Immerse In water, but
this plan Is not so good as burying
them. The better plan Is to have them
as fresh as possible and to keep them
out of the ground as little as possible,
and while they are out of the ground
protect the roots as much as possible.
It Is not difficult to test seed corn. A
good plan we think the best plan
ts to take a grain from each of one
hundred ears at random and plant them
in a box or two or three crocks filled
with good earth. Keep the earth
moderately moist using only tepid wa
ter and keep the bos where the tem
perature Is agreeably warm In the
kKchen Is a good place. Put the box
near the stove at night or In the oven
when the stove has cooled off. If less
than M of the 100 kernels germinate the
seed should not be used.
It Is the seed that was thought to be
good that falls to make a good stand.
It seems easy to be mistaken about
teed corn, com that goes Into winter
waiters In apparently first -class coadU
tlon msy have a little moisture lurking
cbout the germs, though the outald
of the ears are quite dry; and If this
corn is subjected to much freezing
weather the germs will be injured. The
only safe plan Is to test the corn before
It is planted. To plant a field with
poor seed is a serious matter. With
even the most favorable conditions the
loss is not small, and circumstances
may easily make the loss a serious one.
The poorest disposition that can be
made of a calf is to sell It to the butch
er. The man who makes a practice
of selling his calves for veal is injuring
the whole country by destroying a pos
sible source of considerable revenue.
The calf that is sold for veal Is forever
lost to the world, so far as the im
provement of stock Is concerned, and
because so many have been thus sold
within the last six years the stock of
cattle in Illinois Is much lower than
It might have been and the improve
ment In herds now on hand has been In
the wrong direction.
A calf should be raised on skim milk,
giving it seven or eight pounds at a
feed. This is the natural and best feed
for the first weeks of Its life and after
that It may be fed grain, the weight of
opinion being In favor of whole corn.
This is put into the calf's mouth at
first and It soon learns to chew It and
look for more.
To teach a calf to drink a little milk
should be put Into the bottom of the
pall at first, as it is easier to handle
than a pailful and the calf learns to
drink sooner if it can get Its nose on
the bottom of the pall.
Cows should be bred so the calves
come In the fall. Then It can be fed
on milk through the winter and learn
to eat a little grain, and when summer
comes It Is ready to wean and turn
on pasture, the most natural feed it
can be given, and will continue to grow
and make a larger growth than one that
comes In the spring and must be wean
ed at a time that It goes from dry pas
ture to drier hay and grain.' As it is
best for the dairyman to have his cows
come In in the fall, this works well
both for the profit of the dairy and the
growth of the calf.
Where a herd Is built up from a se
lection of calves born bo It improvement
Is made more rapidly than It can be
when the calves are sold for veal and
the herd kept up by purchasing the
cows some other man wants to sell,
for no man wants to sell his best cows.
From the World-Herald: The fruit
growers of Nebraska are greatly en
couraged In the prospect of the passage
of the bill providing an annual appro
priation of $2,&00 to the State Horti
cultural society In carrying on the work
of horticultural Improvements and dis
play at the annual exhibitions. It Is a
fact that the Influence of the work of
the State Horticultural society haB
been the means of bringing thousands
of good settlers to the state that other
wise would have located elsewhere. It
Is not alone evidence of the adaptation
of our soil to produce big crops of
corn that influences Immigration, we
must have the other requisites neces
sary to home building. A great agri
cultural district of country rich in soil
properties, with climatic influences suit
ed to general agriculture, Is the demand
of the present day. The time of special
crops has passed by, that Is, conditions
of sail and climate that direct the tiller
to one line of production. Such dis
tricts of country are regarded as the
uncertain lands, because failures must
come to all soil crops at some time,
and when this happens the special crop
district suffers a hardship that is diffi
cult to recover from.
The general character of production
on Nebraska farms.especlally that com
prising such a wide scope in horticul
tural Interests, makes the Nebraska
farm one of the most desirable prop
erties to be possessed for a home. In
dependence In the work of soil produc
tion Is the great Incentive to man In
choosing the occupation of farming.
The fruit orchard Is one of the great
est sources of profit and pleasure that
the common farmer can enjoy. The
horticultural society Is doing much to
bring the attention of home seekers to
this feature of production In Nebraska.
All root and fruit pits should have
good drainage provided. If they are not
on a naturally drained site.
In burning all weeds, trimmings and
other rubbish In and around the berry
patch, many insects and fungi are hap
pily disposed of.
A mulch of manure on the raspberry
natch Is good for next season's crop,
but It should not be so heavy near the
plants as to furnish a harbor for field
mice, beneath which they can dig down
and eat the roots.
The Chinese, owing to the multiplicity
of the characters of their written lan
guage, have solved the problem of tel
egraphy by using numbers instead of
characters for transmission over the
wire. The numbers have to be reinter
preted Into characters when received.
To facilitate the operation types are
used. On one end of each type Is a
character; on the other end Is a num
ber. By reversing and Imprinting the
types upon a sheet of paper the change
Is readily effected with a high degree
of accuracy.
