Onuses for Hop.
For a hog pasture we would use
very kind of grass that would grow
in the neighborhood, says the Iowa
Homestead. It is not possible to get
-too many varieties at the start. You
will have few enough at the end of
about three years. We have two
reasons for this, viz., to secure the
greatest amount of food per acre and
suitable variety for the tastes of the
hog. It should be borne in mind by
11 farmers who wish to get the oest
results from pasture grasses, that none
of them occupy the field fully the
whole season. They have their periods
of rest even in the summer, and when
there are varieties enough they take
precedence by turns. For example.

discouraged in July and do little more
unless the season is quite wet, while
orchard grass and red and mammoth
clover grow right along. Both of
these begin to get tired about the
time that blue grass wakes up and
gets ready to monopolize things. The
grasses are all social, even blue grass
the most reserved and unsocial of
all of them never being quite happy
without its chum white clover. There
fore, for a first-class, permanent past
ure, we would grow every variety of
grass possible in the locality. It is
better to have a pasture that will
carry fourteen hundred pounds
of cow, horse, sheep or hog to
'the acre all summer, than two past
ures that will carry only seven hun
dred pounds per acre. To do so it is
imperative that it have a variety of
grasses. Any of the grasses we have
mentioned will do fairJy well in any
part of Iowa, unless it might be or
chard grass in the northern part of
the open prairie. To these may be
added meadow fescue, and in the ex
treme northern part red top. Red top
will do well on wet lands anywhere,
but we would advise against sowing it
anywhere in the latitude of central or
To apply all this to the case of our
correspondent. If he has a hog past
ure with only mammoth clover
we would, in March, sow the fol
lowing mixture: Timothy eight
pounds, red clover six pounda blue
grass six pounds, meadow fescue, known
as English blue grass, four pounds,
and alsike and whito clover one
pound each. This is a heavy seeding,
but when a farmer wants a hog past
ure he wants a good one and it will
pay. Wo would sow these grasses on
the sol in March, and trust to the
freezing and thawing to cover them.
Do "not look for much blue grass for a
year or two. It and the white clover
will appear when the others give wa',
and finally occupy the entire field,
with the exception of special years
when the other grasses will undertake
to get possession.
How to Select a Bull.
In may be that some of our readers
are preparing to select a bulL The
following from the National Provis
ioner may bo of benefit:
Select an animal with a head very
long, the muzzle fine, eyes prominent
and full of life, ears long and thin,
the horns wide, the neck small and
fine where it joins the head and ris
lnor from the shoulders with a grace
ful curve. The shoulders should be
broad, but not too broad, at the junc
tion with the neck; chest open, pro
jecting well before his legs; fore legs
muscular, tapering to the knee joints;
the legs clean, handsome and fine
boned; no hollows between the shoul
ders; chin and chest alike full; plates
firm, sustaining the belly so that it
does not droop below the line of the
breast; the back broad, straight and
flat; promising a good sirloin in his
progeny; the ribs symmetrically rising
from each to each, until the last al
most joins the hips. The idea we
seek to convey is expressed by some
writers calling the body "the barrel.'
The hips must bo wide to uphold
the frame that we have partly
described. There must be no angular
ity. A full, round outline is needed
at once for beauty and power, a little
higher than the back on which ' 'Pris
cilla, the Puritan maiden," might
have ridden from church with the
bridegroom, John Alden. "in the old
colony days," of which Longfellow
has written so eloquently in 'Miles
Standish." The quarters from the hip
to the rump should be long and taper
ing from the hips everything, in fact
indicating that the breeder has used
the best models of bovine beauty and
might to present his -idea of the bull.
The turls or potboncs will not pro
trude, the rump will be close to the
tail and that will be a broad well
covered addendum, in a straight line
with the spine, falling in a pleasant
curve toward the ground, as if its de
scent told of a reserve power that
might carry tho caudal member in
any position with equal ease.
An experienced hog raiser says that
hogs weigh heavier according to bulk
when fatted on slops made of ound
grain than when fatted on ear corn or
other dry raw grain, for tho same rea
son that cattle weigh heavier ofT grass
than dry feed, because there is more
sap in the meat the result of being
: fed succulent watery food. Also a
slop fed hog is moie thoroughly fatted
on the inside than tho hogs fed on dry
feed. It pays well to finish the hogs
off on slop if it's only for two or three
weeks before marketing. However.
if we place our own hogs on the East
ern market the advantage gained
would not be so great as a slop fed
or grass hog drafts ono-third more in
transportation than a hog dry fed.
The Best Fowl.
While certain breeds are adapted
best to certain purposes, it must not
befoffwtten that after all, what we
get frost a hen is according to what
we put isto her. The best seeds will
not grow so well in poor soil as in
that richly manured. The best milk
cows will become poor milkers if they
are not properly fed and cared for.
So with kens. Feed for eggs and and
any Breed will give them some
breeds more, some less. The writer
knows of a flock of Brahma hens
that laid more eggs in a year than a
neighbor's flock of Leghorns. -Why?
The Brahma man fed for'ogfsthe
Leghorn man fed fatprodaixfeed.
Yet undoubtedly. ,tke Leghorns can
easily outstrip the Brahmas if both
Breeds are 'fed for egg production.
It Is in poultry as in cows. Some are
milkers, others better meat
The Asiatics could not stand, the
bill of fare of the Mediterranean class.
This latter class will consume double
the amount of ratiomj the Asiatics will
and yet remain in good condition.
Therefore, to sum up, the best fowl
for eggs is the one that when sup
plied with the necessary elements,
will turn out the most eggs. The
best for meat is the one that will most
readilv add on flesh. Then comes the
question of what breeds will fill the
bill best? According to experiments
tried the Leghorns. Minorcas. Andalu
sians and Anconas come in for the
leading honors as egg fowla the
Brahmas, Cochins. Indian Games as
table birds, and the Plvmouth Bocks.

been offered to the public, none can

English Boys and the Great
Tn England, .while a boy is still in
the unreasoning age of childhood,
good-natured people will ask him play
fully what he is going to be. At a lit
tle later stage the inquiry takes an
rather and more serious form "What
school are you going to?" There is no
playfulness in the question now. Here
by hangs a whole social history. In
one family the tradition is for Eton, in
another for Rugby; and to these tra
ditions father and son are, as a rule,
absolutely loyal, except under especial
emergencies of typhoid or scarlet fever.
The true Englishman of the upper
class is not more certainly born,
"either a little Liberal,
Or else a little Conservative,"
than he is an embryo Harrow boy or
Winchester "man." In after-life he
meets with the question, "What school
were you at?" And here again he is
apt to feel at a disadvantage if he can
not fasten upon one of the important
public schools the credit or blame of
his early training. It matters nothing
that he was only there for half a year,
that he never rose above the lowest
form, that he was flogged half a dozen
times in as many weeks, that he was
promptly expelled for outrageous in

gentleman. To have been at the uni

Strangers la Londoa.
Two American gentlemen and their
wives were in London, says the New
York Tribune, and as it happened,
both couples had letters to Lady M.,
and received cards for a "drum" at her
house in Cavendish Squaie. The spa
cious rooms were full of people, but
the four Americans saw not one famil
iar face. However, they paired off,
Mrs. G. with lr. S and Mrs. S. with
Mr. G., and so got along tolerably well
till supper was announced. Then, as
the movement to the dining-room be
came general, the two ladies found
themselves uncomfortable. Mrs. &
tells the story.
Our husbands had strayed off for a
respite, and we sat side by side on the
sofa, with outward smiles but inward
apprehensions. Just then Lady M.
sailed up to us, almost hiding the
gentlemen she had in tow.
"Mrs. G., may I introduce to you
Mr. Brown?" she said with the awful
amiability of the fashionable British
matron, and moving aside to allow the
gentleman to come forward. To our
intense amusement he proved to be Mr.
While we all stared at each other,
not exactly knowing how to meet the
situation our gorgeous hostess went on,
loftily and graciously: "Mr. Brown
will take you to supper, Mrs. G.," and
she sailed away happy that she had
provided at least one of her stranger
guests with an escort.
We managed to restrain our laughter
till Lady M. was at a safe distance.
"Innocents abroad!" said Mr. G..
facetiously; "but I'll le hanged if I
take my own wife. Come on, Mrs. S."
"But, Jim, you can't leave me hero
alone,' said his wife, imploringly.
"Of course not," I answered. "Hunt
up my husband, pleas-:, Mr. G. We will

But poor Mr. G.l He seemed fated to
have no identity of his own, for a few
weeks afterward a lady whom he hap
pened to take in to dinner told him the
whole story, and finished up with:
"What would you have done under
the circumstances, Mr. Penfield?"
Precisely what I did, madam," he
answered, determined this time at least
to assert himself, "as I am Mr. G."
The incident was not without its
gratifying side, after all, for Lady M.,
who.is a great authority in her world,
and who heard later of her mistake,
announced her fiat thus:
"Never tell me again that American
women lack savoir faire; I never saw
better breeding. Neither of them be
trayed the slightest consciousness, but
simply accepted the situation, showing
thereby the most perfect tact and
knowledge of the world."
A Word In Season.
An American singer who has made
an almost world-wide reputation, says
that if he were ever tempted to con
sider himself famous, he should only
need to recall an experience which he
had in a Western city one winter, and
his self-esteem would instantly receive
a check. He was announced to sing in
an oratorio at this place, and his head
was displayed in the windows of most
of the stores, as well as on a great
many posters in conspicuous spots,
scattered over the city.
While eating an orange one day he
swallowed a seed, which lodged in his
throat in such a way as to be both pain
ful and dangerous. In great haste he
went to the nearest physician, who, by
aid of an instrument which descended
his throat like a closed umbrella, and
came out like an open one, speedily re
After the operation the physician
scanned his patient's throat with great
interest for a few moments, and then
said, "What is your name, sir?"
On receiving the desired information,
he said. "Have you ever studied sing
ing?" "Why, yea, somewhat," replied the
other, much amused.
"Lately?" persisted the physician.
"No, 1 haven't studied stall, lately,"
said the singer.
"Well," said the physician, who was
a short, florid, pompous man, "I think,
sir, you are making a mistake. I sing
a great deal myself,' and Tve made a
study of it I don't wanj. to encourage
any one unduly, but your throat, sir. is
a good one for singing; and although it
wouldn't probably pay yon to give up
your business to make music profes
sion, if you could get a chance to study
under a good teacher, I believe, sir,
that in time and with proper cultivation
your voice would give great pleasure to
your friends. M

which he gave the inwardly convulsed
singer a card bearing the. tddraaa of; a
first-class teacher" in that city, the
musical doctor bowed his unknown
patient out of the door.

appear at a "Grand Concert," had the
delight of seeing bis quondam

the midst of it a huge body, which
proved to be a snake. The doctor put

looked and saw the snake swallow the

the river just above the bridge, and as
the snake poked his head out on the
other bank of the stream, his tail still
upon the side of the hill, his body
reached clear across the river.

free himself from its deadly embrace,
and there is no doubt that he would
have been killed outright had it not
been for the assistance of a large dog
that accompanied him.
At the bidding of the boy, the faith
ful brute seized the snake in his teeth,
and the little frightened fellow, brac
ing himself in an opposite direction, so
as not to be dragged, allowed the dog,
by a great effort of strength, to tear
the snake loose. So great was the
shock to the little fellow s nerves that
he became temporarily blind, and

been for his sagacious canine friend.

meat being pork and goat in the south
and beef and mutton in the north.

good "square meal" may be obtained,
and, if poultry be needed, a fowl can
be bought for about the same. "Swell"
dinners in a restaurant of note may be
obtained for a little more than two
dollars, and often include the fins of
sharks and the bodies of starfish. A
ceremonial banquet for a party of eight
costs twenty dollars, and frequently
comprises hard-boiled eggs preserved
for twenty-five years, after which lapse
of time they are considered exquisite.
Killed a Moaatala Uoa
Dr. French, a saventy-year-old resi
dent of Alama, killed a mountain lion
one day last week at the Tule ranch in
the pineries, says the San Diego Sun.
The lion had crawled into a pig-pen

ing on two shoats was too big to get
out through the hole. Thus he was an
easy prey to the doctor, who (rave him
a hypodermic injection of bird shot in
order to see him perform. He per
formed to the entire satisfaction of his
tormentor. The doctor administered a
44-caliber pill, which put him to sleep.
The animal had immense craws, and
measured six feet from tip to tip.
