Too Smart for the Doctor.
The daughter of a well known jockey
was very ill, having canght a severe
cold. A doctor was seat for and was
buttonholed by the mother, who re
quested him to favor her by advising
her daughter not to wear low ankled
The daughter was sent for, and, af
ter her tongue had been given the
usual out of door exercise, the man of
medicine said;
"Ah, you are suffering from what we
medical men call a low shoe cold, and
1 must prohibit you from wearing such
shoes in the future."
The young lady started, and. taking
off one of the "offending shoes, ex
claimed: "Since you are so clever, doctor, as

The prospect of relief from drastic cathartic
for persons troubled with constipation is poor
indeed. True they act upon the bowels.nut this
they do with violence.and their operation tends
to weaken the intestines, and is prejudicial to
the stomach. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is an
effectual laxative, but it neither gripes nor en
feebles. Furthermore, it promotes digestion
and a regular action of the liter and kidneys.
It is an efficient barrier against remedy for ma
larial complaints and rheumatism, and Is of
great benent to the weak, nervous and aged.
As a medical stimulant It can not be surpassed.
Physicians cordially recommend it, and its
proresslonal indorsement Is fully borne out by
popular experience. Appetite- and sleep an

Some Up to Date Hint About Caltlva
tloa of the SoU and Yields Thereof
Horticulture, Viticulture and Flori
culture. Notes from Indiana Institute.
Having been engaged the past
tveek in Farmers' institute work
for the several counties in the
series, I made note of some
things that may be of interest to your
readers. In the first place I wish to
remark that very much depends on the
officers of an institute in making it a
pleasing as well as an instructive af
fair. A chairman, or for that matter
a secretary, who is "stuck" on himself
and considers his position so important
as to create a suspicion in the audience
that he is the man to be heard and lis
tened to above all others on every topic
of interest, destroys the social freedom
of speech by an interchange of ideas
from among men in the audience of
practical experience, if shown a kindly
consideration for what they might
have to say, briefly, but pointedly
very often containing more in sub
stance than is to be had in any other
Under the discussion of "Grass Crops
for Profits," one gentleman reported
having top dressed a meadow of twenty
acres with about six loads per acre of
stable manure from his town, a mile,
that yielded near three tons of number
one hay per acre, and brought the top
price in the Chicago market the days
put on sale. The top dressing was
done as convenience for use of teams
allowed, extending from just after the
hay harvest of 1893 until February,1894.
The previous crop of hay cut did not
yield more than about one ton per
acre. The manure cost SI per load at
the livery barn, but each load con
tained half or nearly as much more
than the ordinary load hauled by farm
ers. It was spread as hauled by the
fork from the load. Thought the dry
year had left a large portion of the
manure undisturbed that will afford
much more benefits for the coming
crop. A "Uob White or wooden
toothed rake was used in gathering
the hay. The discussion was one of
general interest and proved the value
of stable manure as a top dressing for
timothy meadows, as vouched for in
this particular instance by the gentle
man's neighbors.
An address by Prof. Heuston of Pur
due was listened to very attentively at
one of the institutes on the chemical
analysis of soils and methods used in
maintaining fertility, etc. He ex
plained that soils differ much in their
chief characteristics or compound parts
in the different localities, and a kind
of commercial fertilizer that would es
sentially do in one place could not be
expected to produce good results in
another, so that those who had to
use that class of fertilizer should be
come conversant with the kind of soil
he had and also the best fertilizer
suited to such soil. As clover is pretty
generally used as fertilizing crop, he
demonstrated the effect it had upon
most lands, and the probable error ex
isting among farmers of not knowing
that to grow and ripen a clover crop
was beneficial in one way and not in
another, as by analysis two parts
were taken from the soil to
where one was added, and those two
were constituents most valuable to the
soil. And my observations with sev
eral neighbors who have for twenty
years now grown almost exclusively
clover, clover seed, corn and
wheat, the professor is not far wrong
in his deductions, as their crops
are growing less remunerative, and
the land has not got the life it appar
ently should have or once had.
My observations lead me to believe,
together with the professor s state
ments,that if the crop was not allowed
to ripen it would be different. That
is, if plowed under in a green state or
pastured down as has been my own
practice, with hogs and cattle, pre
venting the stalks from ripening well
as the seed, thereby retaining all that
was drawn from the soil and adding
that from the air.
Upon inquiry of the average yields
of clover seed thrashed per acre during
the past season, which has been a dry
one, nearly alike the country over,
seems to again be an object lesson.
In ne.ghborhoods and on lands fre
quently growing clover for seed the
yield was said to be one and a half to
four bushels, generally nearer the first
amount namcd,while on lands of a like
quality in the state of nature, but not
devoted to raising clover for the seed,
yielded four to six bushels, and even
All varieties of clover have their ad
vocates, more probably for what they
grow it for or what the general line
of farming pursued.
The small clover is thought to be
the best by most farmers as a fertilizer,
because of possessing greater tap
roots that penetrate the soil further
down, and as a second crop for seed
returns more immediate returns.
The large clover is better for past
ure, especially when sown with other
grasses, and also has a good deal in
its favor when raised for a seed crop.
The alsike has shown itself to be a
good forage plant, both for pasture
and for hay, as numbers testify, and
several championed the alsike as be
ing the very best of the clovers for
hogs. One gentleman near Logans -port,
said that he met a clover raiser
from the south part of the state who
claimed to never fail getting the
best results from fall sowing, and had
sown twenty acres last fall, but sev
eral expressed their views of it not
being advisable to sow at that time
for northern Indiana.
The crimson clover has but recently
been introduced and not more than
half a dozen reported as giving it a
trial, and several doubted of its be
coming very valuable to the farmers
this far north.
From an address made on the care of
poultry by one of many years' experi
ence 1 deduce the following: That
for gaps among chickens that were
treated in various ways with no
material success, and not until the dis
covery of the little worm in the vessels
containing their drinking water, and
afterward was carefully attended to
by scouring the drinking vessels thor
oughly every morning and providing a
fresh supply of pure water. Neither
were any pools of stagnant water al
lowed on the poultry premises. Con
sequently not a single case of gaps or
other disease had appeared among the
chickens since.
The subject of feeding wneat to
stock, especially hogs, was pretty
thoroughly discussed in one of the
meetings and some very accurate tests
were reported showing the relative
gain and profits derived by feeding
wheat to hogs. Wheat should be
either soake4 or ground, preparing
each meal about twelve hours in ad
vance of feeding, as two meals a day
was thought to be the best where the
hogs had a grass range as they should
have. The best report given was from
ground wheat alone adding about one
half the balk of wheat bran, giving
the mess a more harmonizing consist
ency for feeding.
Inquiry upon the use of shredding or
cutting cornf odder by recent methods,
and string it in mows or bins elicited
the fact, that the fodder must be dry
when cut and stored, as it takes bat
very little moisture to damage it to
positive injury. In reply to a question
of stacking or ricking fodder or corn
and fodder out of doors was that the
most trouble was its spoiling too
much, probably from tho large amount
of sap contained in the stock that be
came heated and producod decay when
in large bulks like in the rick.
Among the more progcssive farmers
who have a desire to keep their farms
free from, annoying weeds many, are
fearful of the future consequences in
regard to several kinds of foreign weed
pests that have bean lately introduced
in the state, mainly by the railroads
from the right of way, and unani
mously agree some legislation should
be had the coming winter that might be
the means of more effectually abating
the nuisance from that source.

the growing crops. The latter are
starved and stunted whenever the
former flourish. The best time to de
stroy weeds is as soon as they appear,
but for many reasons the campaign
against them is not vigorously pushed
at that season. The next best time is
before they ripan their seeds and send
them broadcast to sow trouble for
next year. The common practice of
permitting weeds to ripen their seeds
so that the plants may be afterward
gathered and burned is very objec
tionable. In collecting the weeds
great numbers of the seeds arc shelled
and .scattered all over the fields, while
the fire generally burns only the top
of the pile leaving the bottom, where
the seeds have fallen, untouched.
They are thus heaped up, ready for
distribution on the first windy day.
Yet some farmers wonder how the
weeds multiply.
Making Apple Butter.
Cider made from sweet apples will
make a better article, but if it can not
be obtained, common cider may be
used, says American Cider Maker.
Take the cider as it runs from the
press, before any fermentation has
taken place, and boil it down in a tin
or copper boiler (never use iron) until
it has evaporated fully one half; while
it is boiling, ail the scum that rises
must be carefully removed, and as
soon as it is thick enough, add a
quantity of good tart apples, pared and
cut into quarters, taking out all the
core. Fill the boiler half full of the
quarters. Keep up a slow but steady
fire, says Country Gentleman, and be
very careful to stir the apples every
few moments, to prevent them from
sticking to the bottom and sides of the
kettle. When the apples have boiled
about fifteen minutes, and have settled
down a little, add more, until the
boiler is quite full enough; now cook
to a pulp, stirring it almost continual
ly. When it is tmished, showing no
whole piece, but all one mass of pulp,
turn it into jars or firkins, and let it
cool; cover it and store in a cool place.
It can be seasoned with spices while
cooking, or afterward; ground cin
namon and cloves are the best suited
as a flavoring. One and a half bushels
of apples, after they are pared and
quartered, are enough for one barrel
of cider before it is boiled down.
There are tricks in the trade of com
mercial fertilizer manufacture as well
as in all others. A Iihode Island bul
letin says: It is a significant fact that
of the forty commercial fertilizers
enumerated in this bulletin, twenty
three were claimed to contain sulphate
of potash or actual potash equal to a
given amount of sulphate of potash.
This is evidently done for one or botli
of the following reasons. 1. It is well
known that tobacco, hops, sugar beets
and potatoes are of better quality if
grown with sulphate of potash than
with the muriate.orin other words that
a large quantity of chlorine lowers the
quality of these crops. 2. Ten per
cent of sulphate of potash is really
equal to but about 3 per cent of actual
potash and hence by stating it as sul
phate the uninformed farmer is led to
believe that twice the actual amount
of potash is present.
Color of Fruit. It is known that
ripening fruits abaorb greater or lesser
quantities of oxygen and give off car
bonic acid; that a certain portion of
the fiber is converted into sugar and
another portion into water, and that
the coloring process depends much on
the supply of sunshine while the chem
ical action is taking place. But ex
actly why the outer membranes of
fruits take on a positive color; why one
apple is red and another yellow, is a
question scientists have never yet
agreed upon.

Little Blae Steam.
The Latin name is Androfogon Sco
parius. Stems are in bunches, from
coarse strong roots; usually reddish or
purplish, but sometimes pale; 1 to 4
feet high, with several to many
erect branches extending from the
sheaths; leaves many smooth, with
rough edges,usually rather short,sharp
pointed, becoming rigid; flowers in
slender, silky spikes which are soli
tary at the ends of the branches of the
stem, and which often become pur
plish; spikelets sessile, from one fourth
to one half inch in length, empty
glumes sharp pointed, the upper with
long white hairs along the margins;
awn twisted about twice the length
of the glume bearing it The plant is
easily recognized by its reddish or
purplish appearance and by its habit
of growing in bunches. It is called
"broom sedge" in the South, and often
goes by the name of "bunch grass" on
the western plains. It is plentiful
throughout the state (South Dakota)
and is one of the commonest grasses
in the basins of the Bad Lands.
Early in the season it no doubt fur
nishes a considerable amount of feed,
but in this dry climate it becomes
woody so soon that it is unfit
for late grazing or hay, while
stock refuse to eat it as
long as any other grass can be had. It
is hardly worthy of cultivation. Speci

At the Missouri dairy meeting J. IJ.
Ripley said: That pure butter and
ehecse may be produced at a profit, it
will be necessary to enact such laws as
will force the retail, as well as the
wholesale dealers in imitation com
pouuds, to sell their stuff on its merits.
So long as skimmed milk and filled
cheese may be branded and sold as
"full milk cheese;"' so long as oleomar
garine, butterine and other fraudulent
imitations may be sold as the best
"creamery butter;" so long as the dis
honest manufacturer is permitted to
make and eolor his nauseous compound
in imitation of a genuine gilt edged
article, and the unscrupulous dealer
defraud his unsuspecting patrons, that
long will the dairy interest languish
and the products of our pastures and
fields be manufactured into dairy pro

such times to produce larger crops than
at other seasons. If the margin of pro

can partly compensate for the loss.

New York Press: Yesterday I taet a
gentleman who is engaged in the busi
ness of raising fruit in Honduras. His
steamers deliver freight at Mobile, and
from this point his date's, bananas, co
coanuts and oranges are distributed all
over the country. Heboid me that the
prices on fruit are now better than
ever, and that the volume of trade is
expanding enormously every year. He
thinks much of this is due to a radical
change in the national taste. As a peo
ple we eat less pastry and more fruit
than ever before, and to our great ben
efit In spite of the tariff on oranges,
these are the most popular. A develop
ment of their medical properties in the
minds of the public has perceptibly af
fected their price. Orange eaters are
long lived. Oranges are excellent for
all internal organs and the best known
remedy against an appetite for strong
drink. Many men have been cured of
the habit of drinking stimulants in the
morning by eating plentifully of or
anges before breakfast All of which
conduces to the profit of the fruit grow

positive way to get them, and the only

A good story is told of a lazy and
loquacious farmer whose farm lies
along the John Day river. He called
at a neighbor's house recently. Sit
down; sit down," said the neighbor.
"I don't know as I ought," replied the
farmer, but nevertheless he sat down.
After some talk about the crops and
the value of an adjoining piece of
ground the farmer said, slowly: "I
don't know as I ought to be sitting
here. I came over to see if I could get
a ladder; our house is afire."

over the polished floors of the Katricha

dances were objectionable in many
ways, they could have been grent'y
modified and made respectable. Tito
early teachers not only deprived them
selves of amusement from the dictates
of conscience, but they failed to pro
