W. hatter & CO., Dorchester,
The fact is a strange
is no doubt about it.
The horns arc not of much use, and,
on the other hand, are often the cause
of accidents. The removal of the
l.orns of young animals was recom
rt ended years ago by a distinguished
ve 'urinary surgeon, and Neumann
demonstrated that cows without horns
were, fatter and gave more milk than
otheiTS. He saw four Dutch cows with
out horns give from eighteen to nine
teen quarts of milk a day, although
on different pastures, whereas others
of the same breed, but with horns,
only gave twelve to fifteen quarts,
in spite of the fact that they had the
advantage of excellent gracing land.
American breeders have made experi
ments which amply confirm the state
ment made above. Those in favor of
the removal of "horns do not
in the least intend to countenance
any act of cruelty; the removal
would be -effected in a simple and easy
manner, by destroying the tissue or
root of the horn, as soon as there was
the slightest sign of hatdening on the
forehead of the young animal. Hut
without entering into any discussion on
this head.simply note the fact that the
removal of the horns increases the
supply of milk. Although strange at
first sight, it docs not appear so extra
ordinary upon consideration. It is
known by experience that the removal
of an organ which has no utility leads
to beneficial results in other ways. If
then, the animal is more content, if its
domestication is more thorough and
complete, if it gives a better return to
the owner of the quantity and quality
of its milk.it is natural to suppose that
it will raise a better calf, that shall be
a better feeder and have also the
capacity of its sire and dam to grow
faster, mature earlier and generally do
Indian Agriculturist The United
States consul-general at St. Peters
burg says that the cultivation of beets
took its rise in Russia at the begin
ning of the present century simultan
eously with its introduction into West
ern Europe. The government from
the firat has taken an exceedingly ac
tive interest in this industry, and it
has been strongly supported by the
several agricultural and economic so
cieties of the empire. To the first or
ganizers of beet plantations and sugar
factories handsome prices in money
and in government concessions were
awarded; in fact, this industry has
been in every way encouraged, sup
ported and patronized by the govern
ment, The varieties of beets grown
in the empire have their origin very
generally in France and Germany; of
these the French appear to contain the
greatest quantity of saccharine mat
ter, while the German varieties will
produce the largest number of bush
els per acre, the difference in the lat
ter respect being about -. per cent.
Great care is taken in preparing the
soil for beets. The field is twice
plowed, the first time from seven to
eight, and the second from ten to
twelve inches deep. If the beet crop
follows cereals the first plowing is
done immediately after harvest, and
the second just before frost sets in.
The implements used in working beet
fields arc generally of very good con
struction, sometimes foreign-made,
and sometimes made in llussia after
foreign models. The fields are mostly
sown from the first to the last day in
April, according to local conditions of
climate and soil. The seed is general
ly soaked in water, and then sown in
rows about twenty to twenty-five
pounds of dry seed per acre. When
the beet sprouts &how three or four
leaves the plantation is weeded, and
It has been urged by some that it is
best to plant about three times as
many kernels of corn per acre as is
wished to have mature stalks, thinning
the corn when of proper size Bay from
six to fourteen inches high being
careful to remove the weaker stalks.
In order to compare the results of this
method with those of the method of
planting only so many kinds as will
give the desired number of stalks per
acre without thinning. Mr. Franklin
Stump, foreman of the Ohio Experi
ment Station farm, conducted the fol
lowing experiment: Four-fifths of an
acre of land from which soil had been
removed some years since for making
brick, was divided into four equal
plots A strip of uniform width across
the plots, as laid out, hence involving
an equal amount of each plot, grew
melilotus, or sweet clover, the four
seasons of 1SSS to 181)1 inclusive.
The melilotus was not cut,
but was allowed to go down each year
and rcsced the land. A crop of wheat
was cut from the laud in 1892. Aside
from any effect which the melilotus
may have had, the land was practical
ly uniform in quality and condition.
Two plots were planted at the rate of
one grain per foot in the rows. The
seed was excellent and almost abso
lutely every grain grew. These plots
were not thinned. Two plots were
planted at the rate of three grains per
foot in the rows, and were thinned to
practically the same number of stalks
per acre as wtrc then on plots one and
three. The thinning was done July 7,
just four weeks after planting,and the
corn ranged from one to two feet high.
The plots which were thinned yielded
OHO pounds of ear corn, while those
which were not thinned yielded 812
pounds, a decrease of 1 1 per cent due
to the thinning process. This was an
exceptionally dry season. The thin
ning probably caused more injury than
would ordinarily result.

J his is a material the use of which
is largely increasing, says Farmers
Ga.ette. It consists of -dried and
1 powdered fish, or fish refuse. Some
times it is made from whole usli
sprats, herrings, menhadden. etc
wh'ch are boiled to remove the bulk of
the oil (which is a valuable commer
cial product), the residue being theyi
dried for manure. Sometimes and
very largely it consists of the residue
of offal from the cod fisheries, haddock
and herring curing operations, market
fish offal, etc , similarly treated or
simply dried. The more the oil has
i been extracted, the better the manure,
for the more rapid is its decomposition.
Oil retards this, and is in itself useless
as a manure. In good fish guanos the
nitrogen varies from 7 to per cent
up to 10 or 1 pr cent, and the phos
phates from about 0 to H er cent. As
a rule, the higher the nitiogen the
lower the phosphates. LiUe Peruvian
guano, fish ptiauo furnishes botli
phosphates and nitrogen; but its nitro
gen is all in the form of undecom posed
animal matter, whereas in guano it is
alrtad largely in the form of actual
ammonia. Peruvian guano, therefore,
acts much more rapidly than fish
guano; and whil ; the former is gen
erally best n-pplied in the spring fish
guano isgcnerally best applied in the
autumn, so that it may become well
rotten by the time it U wanted. It is
much valued in market gardening and
as a manure for hops.

Dissecting an Tgg.
If an egg is boiled until it is hard it,
may be dissected and examined with
case. First, the shell is carefully cut
through, and then the interior, says
N. Y. Times. The shell will be found
to consist of an outer layer of carbo
nate of lime and several tough fibrous
layers, which consist of firm tissue
made up of strong fibers, interlaced in
crossing bands that greatly strengthen
the mineral and brittle covering. It
will be found that, for still farther
protection, c these fibrous layers are
connected at the broad end of the oval
with a spiral twist band again con
nected with the covering membrane
of the yolk, and the spiral band
acts as a spring to support
the whole of the soft semi-fluid
interior against sudden jars by
which any of the membranes
might be ruptured and the interior be
so disturbed as to destroy the vitality
of the egg. This inner covering is
sometimes seen when, by reason of
some disorder of the hen, the egg is
laid without the shell, and the egg is,
as commonly said, a soft one. The in
side membrane is loose from the shell
and forms an air space or cushion,
where it is drawn down by the spiral
band mentioned at the broad end. If
the hardened inner part of the egg is
carefully sliced by a sharp knife, and
one of the thin slices is examined, it
will be found to consist of several
layers, each of which is distinct from
the other and may be separated, and a
very delicate membrane dividing them
from each other. These layers are
thinner on the sides of the oval and
thicker on the ends, and this
arrangement causes the- center to be
round or spherical, as "is the yolk,
which is closely surrounded by these
albuminous layers. The yolk also con
sists of layers that are concentric with
each other and consists of a granular
substance in which there is a consider
able proportion of fat, In a fertile
egg the vftal germ mav be seen at
tached to tlieside, appearing as a small
round spot. In a fresh egg this germ
is clear and of a whitish color, but in
an egg that is stale or has been incu
bated for only a few hours, it has a
number of fine red veins diverging in
rays from the center, and these are
the first indications of the awakening
of life in the dormant egg.

should be aerated as soon as possible
after it is drawn, and it should, at the

I'd rather be poor and merry," snvs

the Indies with a discontented spirit.'
A merry heart, a cheerful spirit, from
which laughter wells up as naturally as
bubble the springs of Saratoga, are worth
nil tho monoy-bags and mortgages in
the city. The man who laughs is a doc
tor with a diploma indorsed by tho
s.-hool of nature ; his face does 'more
good in a sick-room than a pound of pow
ders or a gallon of hitter draughts. If
things go right ho laughs because lie is
pleased ; if they go wrong lie laughs lo
cause it is better and cheaper than cry
ing. People are always glad to see him,
and their hands instinctively go half
way to meet his grasp, while they turn
involuntarily from the clammy dyspei
tio who speaks on tho groaning. Ho
linghs you out of yonr faults, while you
never dream of being offended with him,
and yon never know what a pleasant
world yon are living in until he points

Cooked I'ooil for Fattening.
French poultry keepers, according
to lloswell, generally cook thc grain
intended for fowls they wish to fatten.
They boil it till the farina swells and
softens, so as to burst the enveloping
membrane. It is the general opinion
that burst gram is better than dry for
fattening poultry, and xvhether this is
founded upon accurate experiment or
not, it is of importance to ascertain
ihe difference of expense between the
two, and whether more or less is eaten
of the one than the other. To discover
this, M. Keamur caused four pint-

Patience ('renter Than Job's.
I suppose Job's patience xvas xvomler
ful for a man; but it xvas nothing to
that of women. What would Job have
done had he been comjielled to sit in
the house and sew, and knit, and nurse
the children, and see that hundreds of
different things xvere attended to during
the day, and hear children cry, and fret,
and complain ? Or how would he have
stood it if, like some ioor xxonian, he
had been obliged to rear a family of ten
or twelve children without any help,
upending months, years all the prime of
life in xvashing, scouring, scrubbing,
mending, cooking, and nursing children;
fastened to the house and his offspring
from morning till night, and from night
till morning ; sick or xvell, in storm or
sunsliine, his nights often rendered mis
erable by watching over his children?
How could he liax-e stood all this, and in
addition to all other troubles the curses
aud even violence of a drunken com
panion ? He would soon have tired of
unrewarded laborand undeserved blame.
For, after all, though Job endured his
boils and losses very well for a short
time, they did not endure long enough
to test the strength of his patience.
Woman tests her patience by a wholo
life of trials, and she does not grumble
at her burdens. We are honestly of tho
opinion that woman has more patience
than Job; anil instead of baying, "Tho
patience of Job," wo should'say. " The
patience of woman. " Kxvhamje.
