Once while talking with General drant ,
1 asked him how he got his strategic
" 1 got it on a farm when I was a boy,1' '
said the general. "I learned it when 1
was drivintr oxen , feeding calves anil
breaking horses. Ono day , when f wa
on tiio old farm in Ohio , my lather taughl
mo a valuable lesson in strategy. "
"How ? " I asked.
"Well , father took me into the stabli
ono Jay , where a row of cattle stood in
their unclcaned stalls.11
"Said ho : 'Ulysses , the stable window
is pretly high for a boy , but do you thinl
you could take this shovel and clean oni

" ' 1 don't know , father.'says 1 ; 'I nevei

" 'Well , my boy , if you will do it thit
morning I'll give you Ihis bright silvei
dollar , ' said my father , palling mo or
my bund , while ho held lliu silver dollai
before my eyes.
" 'Good , ' says I ; 'I'll ' Iry , ' and then 1
went to work. I tugged and pulled ant !
lifted and pulled , and finally it Nvasdono

.started on ho way across Iho slree

The Cost of Poor Iloniln.
A number of experiences made by
'rof. J. W. Sanborn , of the Missouri Ag
ricultural college show that on a moist
dirt road a force equal to1ST pounds was
iceessary to move a load of ,1,005 pound * ,
ir 67 per cent more than was needed to
novc the same load on n gravel road
uiving a grade of one foot In twenty-
eight. On n level gravel road the force
needed was only one-fourth as much as
on Iho dirt , and on a plank Moor but one-
seventh ns much power was required as
was needed in moving I he load over ( lie
lirt road. This made no allowance for
energy waited by the her o in pulling
his feet from the mud and In lifting them
over the liltle elevations always beforu
them on n muddy road. The < e fact. ; sug
gest n few calculations that may not bu
nlirely without interest to those who
liave to haul loads in town or in country.
Supposing that the highways on each
alternate section line bo well made of
gravel or other equally srood material at
a eo t of , cay , ? 2OPO per mile , and that
lhi- cost be equally divided between the
.ecliona u'ljoniinsr the improved high
ways , the annual interest to be paid by
each section of land at I ! per cent , will bu
$121 , or ll.f ) > cents per acre per year. Can
farmers all'ord to nay this las for the saku
oi having well-graded , hard , smooth
roads every day in Iho year from their
doors to tlio market town ? How many
loads , must each haul to save enough in
tin ) tinii ! and wear of men , hoiv-es , har
ness and wagons to equal Iho interest ,
assuming that a fair day's work should
average lifleen miles of hauling , and bo
worth $ : ) per load , of whatever weight
could bo safely hauled over dirt roads.
According to the eonclu.-ions reached
through the experiments mentioned ,
forty-two loads on the dirt road , twenty-
.sevenloads on a well-graveled road hav
ing an incline of one foot in twenty-
eight , and ten a half loads on n level ,
well-graveled road would equal the inter
est , on the above basis of sf ! ) per day. If
wagons strong enough to bear tliu bur
den were u > ud , the number of loads on
smooth and level macadam might bo re
duced to six. The pay would practically
be , for hailing loads over thu several
kinds of roads , equal to ! ? ! ! on dirt ,
$1.07 on inclined graveled , and $12 on
leveled { Traveled roads respectively , per
load , while on level smooth macadam it
would bo equal to ! ? il ! per load.
These fiuures arc all bated upon a com
parison between tlio forces necessary to
move a specilied weight over a dirt road
only slightly moist and those required
for moving the same weight over lliu
olhor descriptions of roads The advan
tages of the improved over the dirt roads
would not fully appear until wet weather
of spring or a mild winter should come
to make channels of deep mud of the
highways through districts where the
so'il is rich like that of the fertile bottom
lands or the unctuous prairies of Illinois.
At such times work with teams becomes
extremely dillicult , if not quite impossi
ble , so far as the roads are concerned ;
and in the Holds no hauling should bu
done for reasons that will appear to any
good farmer. In such sca.-ons horses
and men lie idle , thus wasting time and
food that , with better highways , might
bo inado of those days wlien work wilh
icnms could not be done in lields with
out cutting up their surface and over
working the horses.
Selecting the IJrecrt or Swim- .
A writer in the Knral York Yorker
says : There is no butter timu than dur
ing the summer growth of swine , or dur
ing annual fairs , for tlio intended begin
ner to select n breed to adhere to. Jt
may not bo to his interest to grow
very large swine ; but it certainly is to
every man's interest , not only to select a
broud , bill the specimens of a breed that
will grow to a fair marketable size at an
early age. The color , as in cattle , is
mainly a matter of fancy , for , while it
may not be denied that some swine are
liable to ailments of Hie skin , that do not
commonly iiH'e.ct others having lliu hair
and outer coating of tlio skin differently
colored , yet the color cuts no liguro in
li.xing the fattening tendency or in deter
mining the quality of the llesli. 15y ex
amining dillerent herds of breeding
swine , and the off-shoots of those that are
being fed for markets , the latter on some
farms being made up of the leavings
such as did not meet the demands for
breeding purposes as these are upon
grass , depending mainly upon this for
suslenance , ono can make a better esti
mate of the value of a given herd , as
"self-tenders , " than where they are kept
up in close quarters and fed on rich food
prepared from grains , oil cake meal , etc.
Then again , it is an aid i/f no mean im
portance in making selections , to bo able
to look over a lot of brood sows having
their litters with them , as in this way wo
are enabled to see what Iho tendencies
are in breeding ; that is , whether they are
inclined to breed good litters ns lo num
bers , and good also in Iho mailers of
growth , form , and tendency to fatten
promptly. If ono will keep an eye open
lor pointers that will aid him , he will get
these by observing a not unusual sight-
namely , that a po'rtion of the sows so line
looking themselves lire- followed by ono
or two good pigs , another not so good ,
and a puny runt. Those are some of Iho
advantages secured by visiting herds in
the summer as one can then most easily
trace family characteristics , in thu mat
ter of prolilicness. not only of thu older
sows , but of the oll'shoots of those that
have been nut to breeding. There Is a
natural tendency to variation in all kinds
of domestic animals , and swine stock
coming into breeding so early mid ma
turing so rapidly , it is unreasonable to
expect striking variations. Hence , if we
can find within n given herdn family line
more uniform in important features than
other family lines in the collection , reas
onably prohlio as breeders , good growers
and shapely in form , these arc Hut fam
ilies out of which wo should select , get
ting our male from a dillerent , and if
necessary , a distant herd.
How to I'riinc.
Fruit Recorder : Wo look upon tiio
roots as thu parts that nourish , but tliu
roots are the months through which food
is taken. It is moro correct to say that
the stomach nourishes rather than thu
mouth , and the leaves of the tree rather
than the roots. Hy severely culling back
heads of Irces 1 can almost suspend
growth. Thus wo often leave branches
that 1 know must come oil' next season ,
simply to induce growth of the part that
is to remain pormnnontlv. Some people
seek to urge the growth of scions in newly
Drafted trues by removing nil lartro limbs.
1'hoy should remember Unit they thus re
move that which induces growth , and
after such severe slaughter many of Iho
fibrous roots will bu loiuid dead ; for if
they have no work to perform they bo-
oonio feeble and short lived. Wo must
distinguish thu dillbrencu between trees
and vines , If we wish the era pa lo grow
vigorously wo cut it buck closely , for its
loaves nrn very largo , and it has the fac
ulty of covering a trellis with only a few
buds. Thus wo cut feeble growing vines
bnok more closely than stronir growing ,
for bv close cmting we get more foliage
than by leaving ouncs long. Therefore ,
in pruning trues thodniigcr lies in cutting
too much , and with vines in not cutting
away enough , if you wish the tree lc
spread , cut to an outside bud ; if to run
higher or closer , to an upper or inside
bud. Leave no crotches , as > they are cer
tain to-break when laden. Cut clt > so tu
the .shoulder , but do not cut the .shoulder ,
Humember that ho who does not trim ai
nil gets the most irrowth of tree , yet he

thai have been tried and tested.
When wheat is sown on very dry soil
thu condition may bu greatly improved
by thoroughly harrowing the field , which
will bring the seed in close contact with
earth reduced to thu finest tilth , lilted to
receive and condense nlmosphoric vapor
until Iho requisite moisture for gemina
tion is obtained.
It has been repeatedly shown that the
amount of butler that can be obtained
from milk by any of the ordinary pro
cesses is no guide to the amount offal
Unit may bo in milk. Hence to assume
that n poor butter cow may not be a jrood
choose cow , or that she necessarily gives
poor milk , is n jrross error.
Hoth red and black raspberries arc in
clined lo grow too ninny canes , nnd will
bear butter if part aru removed. The
side shoots of red raspberries may bo
used for new plantations , but with the
Hlack Caps now plains are better derived
from roots which form the tips Inserted
in tlio grass grown the previous season.
Save Iho best tomatoes for sued , says
thu Rural Ne > V Yorker , no matter
whether they aro'thn earliest or latest , so
thai they are varieties suitably early for
your soil and' climate. Wo cannot com
pete with the south for earllnc-ss , hence
wo should givo'gruatur consideration to
solidity , smoothness , quality and produc
tiveness. " ;
Trampled , bruised and sufl'ering from
thirst , moat qf the , poultry that comes lo
market is wholly , unfit to nso directly
from the coop. While it is not practi
cable lo send 'chickens to market in

with some regard the comfort of Iho
fowls and for the stomachs of those who
pay for nnd who nro to eat them.
A writer in tire Kansas Fanner says
there is a vtryj ) simple remedy for the
tapeworm ill' ' sncop. Take squash or
pumpkin seeds , crush them , and boil
lliem In sulHciunt water to mnkn n strong
ten. Give each lamb two or three ton-
spoonfuls in n cup of water , if preferred ,
tlio seeds may bo crushed and mixed with
ground grain , allowing n handful to filly
lambs ,
Tlio following is said to bo a cheap ,
simple and uthcionl way lo cure sore
backs and old sores of any kind on horses ;
Take while oak bark , peel Iho ross or
outside off , add water nnd boil it down
till it is as thick as black ink. When cool ,
add lo a gallon of the bark extract two
ounces of alum. Wash the affected part
two or three times a day until cured.
A ditfurcncu of four quarts of milk per
day at the low price of 3 cents a quart
makes for 03 days $21 , which is thu in
toroH on $400 for n year. This does nol
represent thu en tire difference in value ,
as the progeny of superior milkers will
bo worth many time * ns much to raise as
will the progeny of Iho inferior animal.
.Vo farmer is rich enough to keep poor
Nearly nil the fruit growers make the
mistaki ! of settlngout a grealer number
of kinds thnn can be marketed with
profit. For ; i family supply a number of
varieties are admissible , though , even
then , nearly the entire supply will bo
procured for a few favorite trees. For
market , at present , good size and showy
appearance are more important than
quality , so that if n fruit be fairly good
there is no paying demand for the very
Alwav fatten n fowl ns quickly ns pos
sible. Ten days is lone enough' got a
lowl fat , and it should bo confined either
in n coop or n number in n small yard.
( Jive plenty of fresh wnler nnd feed four
limes a day , beginning early and giving
the last meal late. A mixture of corn
meal three parts , ground oats one part ,
shorts one part , scalded , is the best for
the lirst three meals , with all the corn and
wheat ( hat can be eaten up clean nt night.
A French journal gives the following
method of preserving grapesas described
by the inventor of the proce-s : AI. thu
end of October cut the bunches with a
portion of wood attached , 1 trim the
base of this last lo n point , and stick it
into n potato. Afterward 1 spread the
grapes upon straw or very dry hay , nnd
as much as possible , so that they do not
touch each other. Thus prepared thusu
grapes keep quitu as well as it the stems
were placed in bottles of water.

To the Editor of the ) : : : In last
week's HIK : is a statement ot llio live
stool ; of Iowa for 1880. It gives the cat
tle ns 2,500,000 Itead , swine
2,200,000 ; slice ) ) , I)9,000. ! ) This does
not vary much from that for
1885 save in respect to some which were
two million more. Now these statements
have no meaning to most readers un-
hi. s compared with these for some years
In 1800 Iowa had almost ns many slice ) )
as she has to-day , much more If popu
lation bo considered. And in IHTOshe
had more than twice as many. In 1SSO
she had almost -1,000,000 more swine !
She had ID.'i.OOO more cattle and
about as many hor. es and mules
and 150,000 more sheep.
Now , there is not n moro flourishing
state in the northwest than Iowa. Dear
in mind that all the surplus wealth of
our northwest ultimatus mlo live slock.
To show what short views are taken a
friend suggests Hint "this decline is ow
ing to Iowa peoplu going into the dairy
business. " What becomes of their
butter ! " ' "sold for money. " "What of
the money1' "mo.'o cows bought.11
Another , says , "hog cholera. Two
yeats ago he lost nine tenths of his hogs
thus.1 "How many have you now1 I
asked. More than twice as many ? 1
look for hogs to risu.
Missouri is in thu same condition as
Iowa , and so are all western states ex
cept your now growing ones , Perhaps
your old counties may exhibit tliu same.
This depression ot agriculture reacts
fatally on eastern manufacturers. Their
surplus must bo comsumod by the mil
lions west ot Hie Mississippi nnd south of
tliu thiily-ninlh parallel of latitude , in it
must perish unprolitably to producers ,
for neither of tnein have the markets of
the world , until prices get so very low
Hint empty ships can eomo hero to pur
chase direct. And so wo must decline
until all surplus is consumed by man or
time. Then wo spring up and prices go
away up. Yes , up so high that railway
profits leave a good margin for our west-
urn and southern producers. And it is
astonishing if ono will compare freights
for past years , to &eo how they vary.
There is nothing like studving these fig
ures , dull ns it is. Wo all know what , a
mortgage-oaten farmer is. Year by year
ho went down , on the average , though
some years ho went up n litlle. What is
the difference in effect , whether it bo
mortgage or tax , or freight charges mov
ing up or down as thu thing carried will
bear ? Is not the Jast the worst. Imagine
n rent or interest thus movable. 15y
heavens ! when men talk to inn of other
causes for this unsettlement of all the' '
upper stories of business , while this bom
bardment of the one sole foundation that
nil rest on is continued , I am ama/.ed at
their blindness. Hoi/r.
One of the first symptoms of ntlornngo-

An Iowa man bought a tree claim in
Kansas , and supposing from the name
that his property was covered with old
trees and stumps , ho look n stump puller
along when ho to see his purchase.
Discovering his mistake , lie sent back
homo for some willow sprouts to plant on
his claim.
Why Is It
That the sale of Hood's S-irsaparilla
continues at n rapidly increasing rntoy
It is ,
1st. Because of the positive curative
value of Hood's Sarsnpnrilln itself.

Nine-year-old Tommy McCloud was
