One of the great grain-producinj
States of the Union is Kansas. Uiide ]
normal conditions it sends enormous
quantities of grain to other States
About four years ago the weathei
completely reversed this situation
causing a failure of the corn crop
Kansas had to buy corn for its owr
consumption from Iowa , Illinois and
other favored regions , in order thai
its cattle might be fed and put upon
the market. Low emergency rates
were promptly established , and the re
markable spectacle was presented of
oorn moving westbound in large quan
tities to Kansas. On another occasion ,
when the weather went to the other
extreme , with the result that the corn
crop was unusually large and the price'
unusually low , Nebraska farmers had
to accept a price below the cost of
production. To afford relief to those
i&irmers , the Nebraska railroads and
Hhe'ir eastern connections made a tem
porary reduction in rates that gave
the farmers 50 per cent morcgfor their
i corn. Century.
f Iceland Horxe Scheme.
The Icelanders have a queer and ef
fective plan for preventing horses
'from straying away from any partic
ular spot. If two gentlemen happen
to be riding without attendants and
wish to leave their horses for any rea
son , they tie the head of one horse
to the tail of the former. In this state
it is utterly impossible for the horse ?
to move on , either backward or for
ward. If disposed to move at all it
will be only in a circle , and even then
there must be mutual agreement ta
turn their heads the same way.

For Fattening : Fowls.
1 We herewith illustrate a foul-fatten
ing crate , used at the Ontario Agri
cultural College. This crate is G feet
6 inches long , IS to 20 inches high and
1C inches wide. It is divided Into
three compartments , each holding from
four to five birds , according to the size
of the chickens. The crate is made of
slats , except the ends. The slats are
usually V/2 Inches wide and five-eighths
of an inch thick. The slats In front
are run up and down and-are two in
ches apart to allow the chickens to put
their heads through for feeding. The
slats on the bottom are three-fourths
of an Inch apart , so as to admit 6f the

droppings passing through to the
ground. Care fihould be taken not to
have the first bottom slat at the back
fit closely against the back , as this will
hold the droppings. The feeding and
watering are done by means of a
trough in front running tlie entire
length of the coop. This trough Is from
two to three Inches deep and Is made
of three-quarter inch lumber.
Churning When "Weather Is Cold.
Let the milk stand thirty-six hours ;
then skim. If it stands longer than
this , especially in a cold room , the
cream is liable to be bitter , and con
sequently you will have bitter butter.
Once a day turn into the cream a quart
of new milk warm from the cow , then
stir thoroughly. If the cream does not
sour by the time the bucket is nearly
'full ' , set it on the stove reservoir of
'warm ' , not hot , water , stirring frequent
ly until soured. Then add sweet cream ,
or new milk enough for a churning.
Let this stand twelve hours ; then warm
on the reservoir of warm water , stir
ring often , so that the cream will warm
As soon as the right temperature is
obtained the cream should be churned .
A little salt added to the cream after
it is in the churn Is a great help in
separating the butter from the milk ,
and it also aids in gathering the but
ter. If there are bubbles in the cream
after churning a while , add a little
warm water frequently until the butter
Is gathered. This is a favorite method
in cold weather , and If followed you
will always have sweet , solid , salable
Muzzle for Horses.
Horses sometimes act disagreeable
when working In the orchard or when
cultivating corn or grain by trying to
get a mouthful of the growing crop.
The best way to overcome such a habit
is to muzzle the horse , but In doing
this extreme care should be used that
the horse is not injure nor seriously
discommoded by the muzzle. Take
heavy white canvas , such as grain bags
are made from. Cut this In eighteen-
Inch lengths and wide enough to go

Clean the Poultry IIon.se.
The clean house is the home of
healthy fowls , and if one is intending
to hatch eggs the coming spring the
house and the hens should be absolutely
free from vermin. Get at the house
now , fumigating it , disinfecting it and
cleaning It in every way possible. Take
out all roosts , nest boxes and every
thing which will prevent one from giv
ing the house a thorough cleansing.
Then burn some suLolrar in the house
after closing the windows. Then white
wash it thoroughly. Then use Insect
powder in all cracks and crevices.
Wash down the roosts with kerosene
oil , whitewash them and sprinkle in
sect powder over them. After you think
everything Is clean then use a liberal
pprlnkllng of carbolic acid , well diluted.

Starting ; a Flower Garden.
Spring is the time when the average
amateur flower gardener makes his
worst mistakes. Too often he buys
seed which he does not handle proper
ly , with the results that bare spots in
the garden show where he expected
beautiful blossoms. The young plants
that he expected to flower are killed by
the hot sun or choked under heavy or
The qinateur who would rival the
professional florist In the radiance of
his garden , should make a start now
by sowing the seed of many kinds of
showy annuals in boxes or pots , to be
kept i-nrloors for awhile. The boxes
should have holes for drainage in the
bottom , but should not be so open as
to keep the soil dry. Ordinary garden
soil may be used in the bottom , but at
the top there should be a lighter soil ,
well mixed. The small seed should be
sown on the surface ; then fine soil
spread over them and pressed down ,
but not so hard as to cause the soil to
bake. Coarse seed can best be planted
in little drills , or each seed pressed
down into the soil , and the whole cov
ered with a thin layer of earth , as
with the small seed. The soil sJiould
be gently sprinkled with water Imme
diately after the planting. Only the
quantity of water which the soil can
absorb without becoming soggy should
be given. The box should be watered
subsequently whenever the soil becomes
dry a little below the surface.
It is a good practice to sow the seed
in rows , as this enables me soil to be
stirred to prevent it from Daking. The
box should be set by the window and
given plenty of light , but at the same
time shielded from the hot sun. When
the plants have grown to a fair size , it
will be warm enough outdoors to set
them out in the garden. Only the
stronger plants should be chosen for
replanting. Agortums , sweet alyssum ,
shapdragons , heliotropes , lobelias , nas
turtiums and verbenas can be treated
successfully this way.
The Ho/ ? That Jnmps.
In almost every herd of swine there
is one or more that is inclined to scale
fences and usually is more successful in
breaking the fence down than in get

ly and needs little explanation. Two
rings an inch or more in diameter and
two straps with strong buckles are
The strap should be wide enough so
that it will not cut the legs of the hog.
Place one of the straps over the front
leg , after placing the ring in position ,
and the other over the hind leg on the
same side. Be sure and buckle the
straps tight enough so that they will
not come off. Then take a strong rope
and tie in the rings ns shown , being
careful that It is long enough so that
the hog can walk comfortably.

Good Ration. * ) for Cows.
The following ration and its varia
tions or substitutes have been found
profitable , yet not expensive : The first
one is perhaps more nearly a balanced
ration than the other. It consists of
twenty pounds of clover hay , eight
pounds of corn and cob meal and two
pounds of cottonseed meal. The other
is composed of ten pounds of alfalfa or
of cowpea hay , ten pounds of corn
stover , eight pounds of corn and two *
pounds of bran. In sections where
neither clover , alfalfa or cowpea hay
is obtainable , and a mixed of timothy
hay or corn fodder is used , the bal
ance may be maintained by increasing
the quantity of the concentrated foods ,
whether bran , oats , gluten meal or cot
tonseed ineal. It is an excellent plan
to experiment with the different ra
tions until one is obtained which gives
the desired results.
Hauling ? Manure to Field.
While it is admittedly the better plan
to get the manure to the fields as soon
ifter it is made as possible , the plan
las its greatest value when the manure
.s spread as soon as placed on the soil
that is , do not put it in heaps to
spread at some later period , but , If pos
sible , load it from the stable directly
nto a spreader , so that as soon as it
reaches the field it can be put on the
; oil , where It will leach in during the
vinter. The Idea of carting the manure
lirect to the field Is to have It 1m-

back in Tertiary times there were oys
ters in California that had shells thir
teen inches long and seven or eight
inches wide. The animal and shell
loubtless weighed fifteen or twenty ,
Bounds , since the shells were five inch
es thick. These oysters have long ,
seen extinct , but their fossil shells are
ibundant. If the oyster farmer could-
produce individuals of such enormous
size now , and the flavor were good in
proportion to its size , we would be
nest fortunate. In that case a single
jyster would be enough for one stew

body and thus cures both liver and kid
ney troubles. If you take this natural-

condition which so inanv people suffer
from , is usually the effect of poisons in
the blood ; it is often indicated bv " pimples ,

becomes thin and the feelings "blue. " "
