Track Taaka for Freight Kastaas,
The use of track tanks by which lo
comotives of high speed passenger
trains may take water without stop
ping is almost universal on the larger
Eastern roads, where fast expresses are
the rule. The B. O. R. R. has a
number between Washington and Phil
adelphia and intends to equip the en
tire Main Line in the future. This de
cision was recently arrived at through
the use of passenger locomotives,
equipped with water scoops, on fast
freight trains. It was found that much
time was saved, danger from stopping,
being reduced to a minimum and cost
or running lessened. The extra stops
for water take much time and the wear
and tear on equipment is no small
matter. If the experiment on this part
of the road proves successful, track
tanks will be installed on every divi
sion between Baltimore and Chicago.
As a starter, the 50 new Vauclain com
pound engines recently ordered will be
fitted with water scoops.

The Talue of animal manure to onr
farms is seldom realized. We speak
of commercial fertilisers as a necessity
to some of our lands and we speak
truly. But the correct use of our
barnyard manure means the adding
every year of many millions of dollars
to the value of our farms. For this
reason there is a close connection be
tween the number of live stock In the
country and the fertility of our farms.
In the last few years our sheep, hogs,
cattle and horses have decreased by
many millions. This means that it is
possible for us to put many millions
less tons of manure on our land than
formerly. Consider the manurial prod
uct from a single animal, and then
consider it from all the animals in the
country. It is safe to say that during
the late depression our farm lands
have deteriorated enormously, due to
the lessened supply of manure from
farm animals. It the higher prices
now obtained succeed in stimulating
breeding they will confer an indirect
but great blessing on our agricultural
communities by increasing the fertil
ity possibilities of the soil.
There are few if any poor farms that
cannot be made good farms provided
they were ever good farms. A worn
out farm is not a necessary result of
cultivating a farm for generations. In
other parts of the world some of the
most fertile farms at the present day
are those that have been cultivated for
hundreds and thousands of years. The
Almighty, when he made the earth for
the abode of man, did not so construct
the soil that its fertility might be ex
hausted in a generation or two. Where
there are poor, run-down farms we
may be assured that there has been
mismanagement in cultivation. Not
only is it possible to grow all the
crops we now grow without running
down the farm, but it is possible to
take a run-down farm and bring it
back to a state of fertility greater than
that known in any previous period of
its existence. Nor Is a miraculous
amount of knowledge needed to do
this. It only requires a study by the
owner of the best methods of handling
a farm as they are now taught in our
agricultural colleges, in the agricul
tural press and by many of our best
The Velvet Bean.
A bulletin of the Alabama experi
ment station says: The velvet bean
(Mucuna utills) Is a plant which, in
general appearance of leaves and
stems, is nearly similar to the run
ning varieties of cow peas. The vines
attain great lengths, a growth of
twenty feet being usually made and
much greater lengths being sometimes
attained. The beans are larger than
cowpeas and usually three or four are
found in each pod. The pods are short
and stout, nearly black in color and
covered with a coat of velvety hairs.
The velvet bean belongs to the same
family as the cowpea. It is a legume
or leguminous plant, and like the cow
pea, the velvet bean is a renovating
plant, having the power to enrich the
land on which it grows.
In any comparison of velvet beans
with cowpeas as a renovating crop,
there Is one point in which velvet
beans are conspicuously superior.
When frost comes the vines and leaves
settle down together In such a way
that the force of falling rain is brok
en and the network of vines is so
complete that the leaves, the most
valuable portion, cannot be blown or
washed away. With cowpeas the case
is somewhat different, the bare stems
standing erect and affording no means
of retaining the leaves in place. On
the other hand better implements are
required to turn under vines of the
velvet beans than to plow under cow
pea vines. It is not advisable to at
tempt to grow this bean in the north.
Does It Fay ta Feed Liberally.
From Farmers' Review: At a
Farmers' Institute, Tonganoxie, Kan.,
a dairyman gave in his report on pro
ducing milk for the Kansas City mar
ket from common cows, picked up
through the country. So far as pos
sible these cows were fresh in the fall.
During the winter they receive a ration
consisting of a mixture of 14 to 16
pounds of bran and corn meal and what
clover hay and sugar cane they will
eat In summer they receive in addi
tion to pasture and soiling crops, four
to five pounds of bran. By this sys
tem of liberal feeding, a two years'
record shows an annual Income per
cow of $70.99, the milk being sold at
an average of 8 cents per gallon. Last
year at the agricultural college our
best cow cost us 132.80 for feed, the
highest of any cow in the herd and
about S3.50 above the average of the
herd, and yet the profit from that cow
over the cost of feed was $24.12 above
the average of the herd. Does it pay to
feed liberally? With a good dairy cow I
It surely does. Had the herd referred
to above or the best cow at the agri
cultural college been stinted in feed it
would have been an extravagant piece
of economy that would have resulted
in a diseased pocket book. The dairy
cow is a hard working animal and
should be fed accordingly.

Proteetloa far Trees la Wlater.
Mr. A. D. Barnes tells in the Wiscon
sin Horticulturist about his method of
protecting fruit trees against winter
injury. He says: "I want to tell the
readers of the Horticulturist of a pro
tector which I am using with great
success, namely, window-screen wire.
Cut the wire netting in different
lengths and different widths, to suit
small or large, short or tall trees. Roll
the pieces around a broom-stick before
going to the rchard. Use close
meshed, jointed, wire screening. Set
the bottom end one inch into the earth.
This protector needs no tying at all;
will expand as the tree grows. It Is
all right for protecting against sun
scald, atice, rabbits and a multitude
of other things and makes no defense
or fretectloa for bugs, worms and
larvae. This protector is all right aad
not patented, so let's not quarrel over
the origin of it, but use It at once. It
is a daisy. I put It on five hundred
trees one year ago. These trees were
nearly all planted In the orchard in
the spring of 1891, consequently were
of quite good size. The wire ready
cut at hardware store here cost Just
eleven dollars and it took me about
a day and a half to form them and
put them on. Every one Is in its place
now, one year since placing;, and I am
sure they have saved a good many
trees from the ravages of mice, as the
ground was thickly covered with a sec
ond crop of clover and we lost- about
twenty-five trees the previous winter.
The Ash Tree Beetle.
We herewith illustrate one of the
Isrgest of the beetle family that preys
upon our forest trees. This one la
called the Dynastes tltyua. It feeds
m. . Mai- m
a ' vBave' a
Dy t tUyut.Aflti SUsy.
upon the leaves of the ash tree prin
cipally, but it is also found on some of
the 6ther forest trees. When present
in numbers, these beetles, on account
of their size and voraciousness soon
strip a tree of the best part of its
leaves. The one we illustrate is not
enlarged, but shows the natural size.
Some of them are even larger than the
illustration. Fo. ' u.iately, the grub
from which this beetle comes is not
destructive to vegetation, but feeds, so
far as is known, on rotten wood. When
the beetles attack our shade and orna
mental trees, the only way to check
them Is to jar them from the trees and
kill them, or spray the trees with
Paris green and London purple. As
the beetles are very large, the Jarring
method of disposing of them may be
preferable to the spraying of the trees.
Halter-Breaklaa- for Colts.
It is an excellent practice to break a
colt to halter at weaning time, for the
younger the colt Is taught to lead, the
more easily is the operation accom
plished. Youngsters halter-broken at
weaning time are more than half harness-broken
when of age for service.
It is quite an undertaking to round up
a 3 or 4 year old colt and break it to
halter, which feat is necessary before
the process of harness racing com
mences. At that age they are so strong
and frequently make such a protracted
and stubborn fight that the animal la
spoiled. It not infrequently happens
that the horse rears and breaks Its
neck In the operation. All danger may
be avoided, and the labor necessary to
educate the colt to lead will be min
imized by halter-breaking at weaning
time. A colt will soon yield to the
tension of the halter if pulled at an
angle, and it quickly learns that to
follow the breaker relieves it from
pain. The resistance is brief and the
subjugation complete. Ex.
In fattening old steers it should be
borne in mind that the days of growth
are past in that the steer has fully
matured his bony frame, hence does
not require as great a supply of nitro
genous food as would a young, growing
beast or dairy cow. So long as he is
getting the food of maintenance he will
neither progress nor retrograde, but to
fatten him it is necessary to provide
him with an abundance of carbonace
ous food, of which corn is the greatest
and cheapest example, and to aid the
fattening process should have compara
tively little exercise in a comfortable
barn rather than out of doors in the
cold where food is wasted in raising
the temperature of ice water and
warming up the body against winter's
blizzards. It is throwing good feed
away to pile such nitrogenous foods
as oats, wheat, rye, etc., into old steers
when corn, oil cake, hay and fodder
will do all that is required. Save the
nitrogenous foods for the growing and
milking beasts and. feed the corn to the
older fattening animals.
When cattle come off pasture in fall
to enter the stables or feeding yards,
an attempt should be made to kill the
young "warbles" which are forming
upon their backs. Most of our read
ers will know that we mean by "war
bles," the large grubs to be found
in rounded abscesses upon the backs
of cattle in winter time. Years ago the
Farmers' Review showed in an ex
haustive series of articles how serious
is the loss caused annually by these
grubs which puncture the hide, set up
irritation and inflammation and con
sequently hinder the fattening procesa
or milk production. It is claimed that
the young grubs may be killed now
by bathing the backs of the cattle with
brine and this plan should be tried
and again later on, should this method
fail, a little mercurial ointment rubbed
upon the warble will usually kill the
grub, which is also sometimes dis
patched by the thrust of a large
needle. When, however, the grub has
grown to a large size and is surrounded
by puss it may be squeezed out and
High Priced Cattle. The prices of
choice cattle on the market sound
most encouraging. Sales at over $6
are not uncommon now, and a number
at $6.60 to $6.65 have been reported.
This gives the owner of feeding cattle
nerve, but it must be considered that
the class of cattle that is bringing
these fancy prices was high and that
the country is not yet abundantly
supplied with feeding cattle that are
capable of being brought to such
prime condition. It takes good breed
ing to produce the animal of the high
beef type and only such animals, even
in the hands of the most intelligent
feeder, can be made to top the market.
It is generally understood that there
is only a small proportion of the feed
ing stock offered in the market that
can be so handled as to finish them
up as choice beef or export steers. The
men who own them can get big prices
whenever an intelligent feeder buyer
comes around, but scrub stock must
continue to go at less prices. Texas

Sick headaches! Always trace them to a lazy liver or a sick stomach. Poisonous matter, instead of being
thrown out, is reabsorbed into the blood. When this poison reaches the delicate brain tissue it causes congestion
and that dull, awful, throbbing, sickening pain. CASCARETS remove the cause by stimulating the liver, making
the poison move on and out, and purifying the blood. The effect is almost instantaneous. Ladies, whose sensitive
organisms are especially prone to sick headaches, do not suffer, but find relief in CASCARETS Candy Cathartic.

Letters frost Southern members of
the Taylor family indicate pretty
surely that Lieutenant C. C. Wood of
the North Lancashire British regiment,
who was recently killed at Kimberley,
South Africa, was a great-grandson of
President Zachary Taylor, but not a
grandson of Jefferson Davis. Jefferson
Davis married General Taylor's daugh
ter, Sarah. Dr. C. Wood married Gen
eral Taylor's daughter, Ann M.. and
the late Lieutenant C. C. Wood was
their grandson, his father having been
Lieutenant Wood, of the Confederate
C. S. Fateat Oalee Baalaeas.

years, having been born in 1788. He is an
ardent friend to Peruua and speaks of it in
the following terms:
"During iny long life I have known a
great many remedies for coughs, colds,
catarrh ana diarrhoea. I had always sup
posed these affections to tie different dis
eases, but I have learned from Dr. Hart

same and are properly called catarrh.
AsforDr. Hartman's remedy, Feruna,
I have found it to be the best, if not the
only reliable remedy for these affections.

for many -years, and I attribute my
good health and my extreme aye to
this remedy. It exactly meets all

I need medicine. I lielieve it to be espe

A French paper has this droll story
of a laundress who lately gained the
first prize in a big lottery with the
number seventeen. When asked how
she hit on that number, she said she
had dreamed three nights running of
the number seven, and said. "Three
times seven are seventeen! Seventeen
will be a lucky ticket. S I bought it
and won the prize!" It will be seen
that, in spite of "education," super
stition still lingers, and is often foun 1
in unexpected quarters.'
Perfect men belong to an order of
things not yet in effect.
