the average run of people. A good
many church eople are disliked be
cause of their air of holiness, and the
church itself suffers because of the
foolish conduct of some of its mem
bers. "Pious" has become a term of
reproach, and you often hear one
church man say of another church
man: "He is too pious," by which
is meant he snivels too much, and
tries to look good instead of trying to
act good. Indeed, in the church it
self you will find the pious abusing
each other for a lack of piety. A
bishop lately stated that out of every
twenty-five professing Christians,
twenty-four were hypocrites. Had a
worldly man made such a statement,
the pious would have gone rapidly
from one fit into another in their ef
forts to abuse him as much as he de
served. A Denver man has invented a de
vice, by the use of which a fireman
may venture into the densest smoke
and be assured all the time of a sup
ply of fresh air. The device is based
on the discovery that a column of wa
ter four inches or less in diameter
will, when suddenly reduced to about
one-third that size at the nozzle of a
pipe, gather with it at that point
large quantities of air, Two pipes
lead from the nozzle of the fireman's
pipe to a rubber mask enveloping the
face. Through one passes the fresh
air. while the other is used for exhal
ing the air after it has been
breathed. It the device works
there should be a provision for
supplying it, not only to all fire
men, but to the inmates of such
places as the insane asylum at Pon-
tlac and the surgical institute at In
dianapolis. There are a great many sick peo
ple in town, but don't go to see them
too much. No man with a bad taste
in his mouth, and pains running up
and down his back, cares to have vis
itors. TJTe have noticed that people
who make a profession of visiting
the sick, are the ones who never
know when it is time to go. In their
efforts to say something cheerful,
they are playful, and no sick man
likes that Above all, don't pray
with a sick man. Tell a sick man to
prepare for death, and it will scare
every chance of recovery out of him.
If you are sorry, send him something
to eat. He won't care for it, but
those who have the worry and aire of
him, can eat it. Half the people out
in the ccmetry are there because
their friends wore them out when
they were sick. It would be very im
pious to write "Talked to Death," on
a tombstone, but it would in many
instances be true.
The latest device in the way of ar
tillery is a small canon which is to be
fastened under the body of a horse,
the muzzle projecting between the
creature's fore legs; the idea being
that the rider may discharge the
piece at advancing infantry at short
range. It is not stated how the
horse is expected to behave during
the operation. If the gun kicks,
will the horse be allowed to kick
lack? It is to be hoped that smoke
less powder is to be usee'., else will
the poor beast be in danger of suffo
cation from the sulphurous fumes of
his own weapon. There would seem
also to Ih? a possibility that the nose
of the horse might lie added to the
missiles sent against the enemy. The
trial or tho scheme in Ireland, under
the direction of General "Wolselcy,
does not se'em to have liccn bril

Speaking of the terrible disaster
of the burning of the Surgical Insti
tute in Indianapolis, the Sentinel ot
that city says: "For years it had
leen expected and predicted, and the
horrors of it drawn in word pictures
practically just as it occurred. It
was rightly considered inevitable. It
was known by all to be a mere mat
ter of time till it occurred, until the
people would be shocked by the
knowledge that the long-expected and
long-dreaded had happened, sickened
with the details of its horror and
stunned with the terrible harvest
death reaped by it." Such facts add
to the horror. That the city author
ities should know of and wink at such
a crime is apialling. The Sentinel
adds: "The Sentinel bows its head
in shame that it has not raised its
voice long ago against this standing
menace to human life." As such dis
asters usually conic in duplicate and
triplicate the lesson is clear. Let the
authorities of all cities le on the
alert. Imperfections of the kind
about builr ings where the sick and
helpless are gathered arc wholly in
excusable, and the authorities per
mitting them and those owning them
should be held responsible.
Telling Time by the Sage lSui.
The vegetation in the Koontenni
country is very sparse, and you can
travel for miles without finding water.
The sage bush, which is the only liv
ing thing in the country whose growth
is not stunted, grows to an enormous
height in a single day, and dies in just
thirty-six hours. It is nourished hy
the alkali springs which flow beneath
the surface of the ground, and is fed
so abnormally that it dies in an in
comparably short time.
The natives in that district have
got the thing down so fine that thej
can tell by looking at a piece of sag
bush just what time of the day it is,
so if you pull a watch on them they'll
know you are a tenderfoot.
"Why, how'can they tell the time
by looking at the sage?"
"Well, you see, they know that the
sage lives but thirty-six hours, and
they are so accustomed to it that the
can tell to a minute just how fai
growth has advanced."
"Yes. but they don't know what
time of day or night the sage began
to grow, so how can they estimate the
"Oh, they tell that by the number
of branches, and the branches ncvei
sprout till sundown, and then one
sprout every six hours."

A noteworthy experiment has been

ew to Lay a Til Orals.
IN constructing a
tile drain a good
outlet is the first
thing to sec to;
then go to the
lowest point to
be drained. Here
set another stake
in such a way
that a level (use a
long one to le
more accurate in
sighting) will set.
Then by sighting
to the outlet
stake you have a
this to the ground on both stakes and
taking the difference you have the
fall between the two places. Now
measure the distance between the
two stages and sec how the fall com
pares with the distance. Nothing
less than two inches to 100 feet will
answer, and the more the licttcr. In
digging the trench, if there is no
water to show the fall, drive stakes in
pairs, one on each side every few rods,
so that by laying a straight-edge on
top perfectly level and measuring' to
the bottom of the ditch the fall can
be obtained. The trenches should
go as deep as possible, for
the deeper they go the larger
surface is drained, as the tile
will drain twenty to a hundred feet
on each side, according to the soil and
fall. Drains are usually dug from
three to four feet deep, but drain
even if you cannot go deeper than
eighteen inches. In digging throw
the top soil on one side and the poor
on the other, so as to put it back us
before. If the bottom is quicksand
do not delay laying the tile, but lay
and cover immediately, beginning at
the outlet and making connections
with the back drains as you go along.
All of these connections should be
made so as to brinir the flow of water
in as near a parallel course as possi
ble, so as not to obstruct the current.
As quick -a way as any to make
these connections is to saw a hole in
a tile of the main to correspond to the
meeting of the branch, which will
have to be sawed off on a slant to
make allowance for the angle. In
this way the boint is as tight as the
ends, while silt, etc, do not wash in.
In covering be careful not to dis
place the joints so as to let in the
dirt. It is a good plan to cover these
joints with tarred paper or sods be
fore filling and then trample some fine
soil on both sides with the feet so as
not to displace the tile. If the soil is
of a quicksand nature put some of the
top soil around and over the tile for a
few inches, and then any of it will
answer. Fill to within six or eight
inches of the top and then with a
plow backfurrow together. At the
end of a chain, or where it draws the
water from an open ditch sink a -barrel,
running the tile into the same at
about the center. This will prevent
the tile from filling up and the dirt
dropping into the barrel, which can
be cleaned out as often as necessary.
These barrels should be provided with
covers and sufficiently covered in the
fall to prevent freezing during the
winter. If boards are to be used,
horseshoe tile will answer as well as
any, and there are very few soils in
which a board would not benclit by
keeping the tile from settling un
evenly. Try more tile drain and there
will be less cry of hard times. Mar

folnters About Meadow lanIs.
1 would not have manure put in a
cellar nor go to the expense of a shed
to cover it. I would not have a slat
l!oor, for cattle cannot stand in com
fort on one any better than a bare
footed man. I save all the urine and
keep it by itself in a cistern. I would
not spread a load of manu-c oh a
larger surface than two red square
and consider it the right thing to
haul out manure in winter as fast as
made and spread it then. If left in
heaps, the work is retarded in the
spring by having to wait for the
ground to thaw out where the heaps
were. The best, and in the long run
the cheapest floor, for a cow stable is
stone flagging laid in cement. Fifty
years will see it still in good condi
tion while spruce plank will break
and leak in four. I pump the urine
into the sprinkler, and have some
ninety hogsheads to apply in the
spring and use ten hogsheads per acre
on meadow land. It increases the
yield four fold the first year it is ap
plied. I have not seen the benclit I
expected from top-dressing- meadows
with manure, and would prefer plow
ing it in for a crop of grain. In the
days when plaster was extensively
used in this country, there was a say
ing "that it made rich parents and
poor children," and I think it will
also apnly to the present day when
commercial fertilizers are being so ex
tensively used. Barnyard manure,
and plenty of it, is the only thing
that will leave the land in good con
dition for those who come after us. I
use plenty of coarse boife meal
coarse because the effect is not too
speedily taken up by the crops and
because adulteration is more easily
detected. Always plow under ma
nure and not deeper than four inches.

put salt on the roots, there is the

Loss of appetite may be caused

T Si :
with the food, faulty general, manage
ment, soreness about the mouth or
disease of the teeth. When refusal
to eat is due to continued overfeed
ing, short rations for a day or two is
all that is required. Food that is
not eaten within a reasonable time
should be promptly removed from the
manger and the next feed correspond
ingly reduced. Give animal no nmrc
than he will eat up clean. It often
happens that food is refused for no
apparent reason, the animal atthe
same time becoming thin and weak.
In such cases "condimcntal" foods
are useful, not because of any su
perior nutritive value, but because
they do rouse the appetite. The fol
lowing formula is recommended for
the greater number of cases: Ground
or crushed oats and corn meal, ol
each five pounds, oil meal one-fourth
of a pound, common table salt two
ounces. If the animal seems to need
i tonic or is troubled with intestinal
worms, mix with each ration as above
given, a dessertspoonful of powdered
gentian, and a small teaspoonful ol

to cause him to take it, the dislike

The fall calf has as much potential
profitableness as has the spring calf,
says a writer in the American Agri
culturist. But to make it actual,
more and better care is required.
The most critical part of the animal's
life is the first six months. During
this period, the spring calf has pas
ture and favorable weather, but the
fall calf has neither and must there
fore have better care. My fall calves
are. generally supposed to lc two years
old when they arc only eighteen
months. To make them prolltablc,
they must have extra care, which
gives them increased value. I give
them full milk until they arc a week
old. Then I change gradually to
skim milk. After two weeks of age
as good a calf can be reared upon
skim milk, as from whole milk, pro
vided something is added to take the
place of the cream. For this nothing
is lc?ter than oil meal boiled to a
thin jelly. Persons not accustomed
to its use are more likely to use too
much than too little of it.

THE POULTRY YARD.
We read in poultry papers fre
quently the advice "to not breed in
and in," says an experienced raiser of
fowls. A certain amount of in and
in breeding among our fowls is
really necessary to establish certain
prominent and desirable character
istics. To this end the breeder wants
to turn his attention, , giving it
thought and testing his ideas by ex
periment. If you raise this season,
any strong and promising specimens,
with the characteristics that you
wish to perpetuate, put them to
gether for another season in breed
ing, even though they be brother and
sister, and watch the results. But
the best plan for in and in breeding
is to take the strongest and most
vigorous cockerels possessing the qual
ities you wish, to endure and cross
him with the yearling hens favored
largely with the same qualities. Or
if you have a fine old male, cross
him with his best daughters, and fol
low this plan out through all your
live stock breeding. Wc know of a
thoughtful old farmer who followed
this course in breeding for eggs and
says that after a few years had hens
that were half as large again as his
original stock and aH splendid layers
of large eggs. He killed oil all the
hens that laved small eggs and saved
only those that laid large ones, and
these qualities were inherited by

A Question About Rread.
I have made bread thousands of
times and make it a great many
times every year, writes Einma P.
Ewing, but I seldom mix a batch of
dough without discovering something
connected with the
subject of bread-
making of which I
had no previous
knowledge: consequently I am not
prepared yet to answer with a coni
plete certainty a question that is
often put tonic:
"Does dough rise better in the day
time than it does at night?"
Most plants, perhaps all, struggle
for light and grow more vigorously
when they obtain it. Is there any
rcaon why the yeast plant should
differ from other plants in this re
spect? I know of none. And, al
though only a few hours arc nccccs
sary for the growth and development
of the yeast plant, will it not be
healthier and more vigorous and per
form its functions better if its brief
existence takes place under the most
favorable conditions? And arc not
light and pnre air more conducive to
such conditions than darkness and
I believe dough rises better and
makes a liner-flavored and more nu
tritious bread when mixed by daylight
than it does when mixed at night
So lielieving, I shall continue to mix
dough and make bread by daylight,
although it is contrary to general
usage, until it is scientifically demon
strated that my belief is incorrect.
