Miraculous Cure by Cuticura *
"Words cannot speak highly enough
for the Cuticura Remedies. I am now
seventy-two years of age. My system
had been all run down. My blood -was
BO bad that blood poisoning had set
In. I had several doctors attending
me , so finally I went to the hospital ,
-where I was laid up for two months ,
fy foot and ankle were almost beyond
recognition. Dark blood flowed out of
Tvounds in many places , and I was so
disheartened that I thought surely my
last chance was slowly leaving me. As
the foot did not Improve , you can
readily imagine how I felt. I was
simply disgusted and tired of life. I
stood this pain , -which was dreadful ,
for six months , and during this time I
was not able to wear a shoe and not
able to work. Some one spoke to me
about Cuticura. The consequences were
I bought a set of the Cuticura Reme
dies of one of my friends who was a
druggist , and the praise that I gave
after the second application is beyond
description ; it seemed a miracle , for
the Cuticura Remedies took effect Im
mediately. I washed the foot with the
Cuticura Soap before applying the
Ointment , and I took the Resolvent at
the same time. After two weeks' treat
ment my foot was healed completely.
People who had seen my foot during
my illness and who have seen it since
the cure , can hardly'believe their own
eyes. Robert Schoenhauer , Newburgh ,

Convenlent IFen House Door.
It is frequently desired to allow
ventilation through tbe henhouse with
out opening the doovs so that the fowls
may get out. An arrangement which
makes this possible is shown In tbe
cut , consisting of an opening in the
upper half of the door , inside of which
a screen is placed. This allows ven
tilation in the henhouse without draft
upon the birds. Ordinary poultry
netting may be used In the opening ,
with a tight boarded shutter to be
closed in stormy weather and at night.
Thorough ventilation of the henhouse
is very essential , since hens need fresh
air quite as badly as they need fresh
water , and modern henhouses are being

Care of the CO T'H Teata.
The care of the teats should always
be observed by the milker , and when
they get hard and rough should be
anointed with vaseline , as cracked
teats are an annoyance to the milker ,
hurtful to the cow and have a tendency
to lessen the flow of milk. Long fin
gernails are also a discomfiture to the
cow , and the milker should keep them
well pared to avoid trouble.
Some cows will not give down their
milk for some milkers as readily as
to others , and it is often necessary to
change milkers and try to find one
whom the cow takes a liking to and
for whom she will give it down. The
holding up of the milk has a tendency
to lessen the secretion and consequent
ly the flow.
K.sveiilinl of n Silo.
The proper construction of the silo
is of the greatest importance. If the
sides of the silo are not airtight , too
much air is admitted and the silage
will spoil. If the walls are not per
fectly rigid the presence of the silase
will cause them to spring out , thus al
lowing air to enter between tbe silage
and the -wall , and , again , the result is
Before building a silo the most care
ful attention should be given to loca
tion , size , form and method of con
struction. These will differ somewhat

Improving1 Live Stock.
Improvement by selection has made * :
the live stock of this country more val-
uable. It was once supposed that a *
three-minute gait in trotting was very r
fast , and the four-mile running horses *
barely accomplished the distance in i
eight minutes. A GO-pound sheep was T
large , and the razor-back hog was onPJ
every farm. To-day we have trotting 1
horses that have gotten close to a mile C
in two minutes , the runner has nearly 1
reached a minute aud a half , while

I7e and Vnlac of the Silo.
The ue and value of the silo has
made phenomenal progress throughout
the country during recent years. In
1SSS the United States AgrlCuHrral
Department reported only nne\.jT ! CJLOS
In the country. The recent report finds
approximately 500,000. Formerly the
benefits of the silo were almost wholly
unknown to the average farmer ; now
it is found to be a necessity on thou
sands of farms. Tills is especially true
in the corn belt , where the silo is almost
a , necessity in economical dairying.
Recent experiments prove conclusively
that the use of silage is quite as much
of a necessity In beef production. It
not duly provides a palatable , succu
lent , healthy food , but enables the
farmer to keep about twice the number
of live stock as before the advent of
the silo. It not only produces nearly
double the quantity of dairy products
and beef , but augments the fertility of
the fcoil. The silo is here to stay , and
every farmer should plan to have one.
With all its other advantages , there is
no other way that roughage can be so
It sometimes happens that one has to
plow sod whenever the opportunity pre
sents Itself for doing the work , with
out reference to whether the time
chosen Is the best or not. Some argu
ments might be advanced in favor of
early fall plowing , while late fall
plowing also has its advantageous fea
tures. If plowing is done early in the
fall , say , in September or October , It
la usually necessary to do a little disk
ing before the ground freezes up , oth
erwise the grass may make consider
able growths , and this In turn pre
vents the sod from decaying. If one
has the available horse power aud also
the time to do the work , bluestem sod
may be brought into fine condition by
plowing it early and afterwards disk
ing It. The ordinary method is to plow
late in the fall. If the sod Is turned
over completely with but little buckling ,
the grass will make but little head
way , and consequently a saving of la
bor will be affected , as compared witb
early plowing. Field and Farm.

How to Drive n "Well.
In many sections of the country
where there is a gravelly sub-strata ,
the obtaining of water is a compara
tively simple matter by means of a
driven well , says Farming. The method
Is as follows : A section of pipe ( a con
venient size being inch and a quarter )
is fitted with a point of Iron. This pipe
Is bored full of holes , which are cov
ered with a brass gauze. The point is
driven Into the ground by a sledge ham
mer and five-foot sections of galvan
ized iron pipe are Joined to It as It is
driven Into the ground. Frequent tests
are made with a pitcher pump to dis
cover when water has been reache'd.
Phis method of obtaining water is not
altogether sati factory , because from the
rery nature of things the work has to
ae done blindly , and. very often one is
obliged to give up entirely after hav
ing driven twenty or thirty feet of pipe

Scarcity of Quail.
Quail starved to death by thousands
in : the winter of 1904r03 , but last winter
they had an easy tune except in Febru-
iry and March. From Massachusetts
to Indiana the quail are so scarce that
restocking has become necessary. The
alrds for this' purpose are hard to find.
More than 100,000 have been captured
in Alabama and the southwest , where
they still occur in abundance , and have
teen shipped north for breeding. Even
this supply is inadequate , and may not
last long. The quail is perhaps our most
popular game bird , and a market will
ae found for all that can be procured.
Complete success has been had In rais
ing them on a small scale. Why should
aot some one go into the business on
such a scale that he could turn out
100,000 quail per year ? Country Life
