"You can bank on'1 Sam Jones , to use
one of his expressions , Thn blr//.ard has
not succeeded in knocking him out yet.
At 8 o'clock last evening he faced nn
audience ot about five hundred rioowlo at
the exposition building. A do/.i'ii ladies
wcro present. The ministers present
wore Unvs. House , Harsha , Shcrrill and
Ensign. After a short song service Mr.
Jones announced that he would talk
chiefly to young men , as his audience
was composed mostly ot Ilium He said
and was also running the meeting ,
nnd that it must bo all right to go
on with the work , for ( Jed never
works against Himself and whatever llu
docs is right. Ilo spoke lirst of the ne
cessity of choslngthu bible for a guide
and likened it unto a man who buys a
machine that he don't know anytliintr
about. Hu must taku the catalogue and
directions furnished by the maker of the
machine before ho can get it into run
ning order. So it is with man and the
biblo. The blbic is the guide. Hod niado
man anil God made tlio bible , und the
man can not be run with any satisfaction
to himself or gootl to his fellows except
on the plan directed by God m llio bible.
Speaking further on lids Hue , Mr. Jones
8ald :

by any other plan In the uuiveisu , then you
will liud out , sooner or Inter , that
you do not know yourself. The great trouble
with humanity Is that we move oil on
phllosphy. and false plans and false WHVH ,
Nothing but disaster can oveitako us In
every Instance. Tlicre is a way , nnd a i Ight

way leads to disaster aud the ri.'lit waj leads
to right results. Now \\o bay sometimes "llmt

and it Is good .sense , but when you say that In
awronBprinoinlo there Is no such thing as
a wrong principle. There Is a light princi
ple , however. I'llnclplo means a ride ; means
astiaight edge. It means a straight Hue.
Well now , suppose 1 say : "Tuat lt > a crooked
straight line. " That would be nonsense ,
wouldn't It ? " A wrong principle and
a crooked fitr.iight line are exactly the same

take that engine oat , toll it ngou the track ,

"What can I do to let It bo known whoso

Food for Hogs Kxpcrlments.
Prairie Tanner : Tlio \ \ isconsm Agri
cultural Experiment station has been
making some feeding experiments , and ,
among others , nine plain bred Digs , with
some Berkshire blood In them , were used
to determine the relative value of corn
meal , shorts , and n mixture of the two ,
for feeding purposes. The pigs , weigh'
Ing about 180 pounds each , were separ
ated Into three lots. Lot No. 1 was fed
wet corn meal , lot No. 3 wet shorts , nnd
lot No. S n mixture of each in equal pro
portions. Each lot was fed nil they
would cat up clean for forty-two days.
The corn was estimated at 83 conta per
bushel , nnd the shorts cost 70 cents per
100 pounds. The result indicated that to
produce a pound of porlc with meal alone ,
cost 4.3 cents , requiring 5.0 pounds of
meal. It required the same amount of
shorts , costing 3 7 cents , to produce a
pound of increase , But 3.3 cents worth
of the mixture produced the same result.
While a single experiment is by no means
conclusive , it would indicate that a mix-
tnro of corn and shorts will make cheaper
liork than corn nlono , ovou when shorts
cost considerable moro than the price
paid ut thu Wisconsin Experiment sta
tion. Experiments witli regard U > the
valtlo of cooked und uncooked food at
the station , indicated that it cost one-
half cent more per pound to make pork
from cooked food , apart from the ex
pense of cooking.
How ( o .TiulRo Shncp.
Practical Fanner : Purity ot blood is
invaluable , especially in llio niulu sheep ,
as ho is chiefly to bo relied on when
crossing , or improvmc the breed is de
sired. The English Downs are consid
ered the best for producing first-class
mutton , while the Merinos are remembered -
bored for producing the linest wool. The
principal points sought for in sheep arc
Ihosu that give evidence nf Iheir fatten
ing properties ; a straight back , broad
loins , roundness of body are valuable
points. A good-formed animal is ono
with plentv of llesh evenly put ou , and
a little bone as possible. Tlio following
gives requirements for mutton sheep :
Huad , moderately line ; nostrils wide ;
eyes prominent ; oars broad , moderately
long , thin and covered with short hair ;
collar full from breast and shoulders ,
tapering gradually all the way
to where the neck and head
join ; neck short , thick and strong and
free from coarse aud loose skin.
Shoulders broad nnd full , and at the
same' time joined so gradually to the col
lar forward and the chino backward as
not to leave tlio least hollow in either
place. Fore logs , the mutton on the arm
or fore thigh should como quite to Uio
knee ; leg with hoavv bone and upright ,
clear from superfluous skin , should
stand square and well apart ; breast ,
broad and well forward , keeping the legs
wide apart ; girth or chest , full and deep ;
fore Hank quite full , not showing hollow
behind shoulder ; back and loin , broad ,
flat and straight , from which thu ribs
must spring with a line circular arch.
Belly , straight on under line ; quarters ,
long"anil full , with mutton quilo down to
the hock ; hook should stand neither inner
nor out , but straight ; twist , or junction
inside the thighs , deep , wide and full ,
which , with a broad breast , will keep thu
legs open and upright ; the whole body
should bo covered with wool , of a closu
texture , of good length and line quality.
Winter Gardening.
The use of sash and healing inanuro is
yearly becoming more and moro com
mon among farmers in the forcing of
vegetables for transplanting to the open
ground in llio spring. Those hot-beds
nro not loss seldom found umouir subur
ban residents. The reason why they are
not still more common is from the fact
that people must buy _ the heating ma
nure , and the expense is an obstacle. It
is a mistake , however , to suppose there is
any loss hero. Manure is required for
the garden , ami when it has exhausted its
heat in thu hot-bed it is in just the proper
condition to apply lethe soil , and tuodoil
of thn bed has in the meantime absorbed
all tlio gases given up by the heat gener
ated except that small portion absorbed
by the plants within llio framo.
If this fact were bctlcr known winler
gardening would como lo be moro and
moro practiced by both farmers nnd vil
lage residents. All that is required
is iv pit two feet deep to accommo
date the heating man uro , the frame
having double walls six inches thick ,
filled with tnnbark. the frame rising nol
more than four inches above the surface
of the ground at the front , and about six
inches at the hack. With proper protec
tiou of the whole against wind by means
of evergreen hedges and solid bean
fence , and a foot oFslongh juiy to cover
the glass at night , and in very severe
weather when the sun does not shine
radish , lettuce , parsley , popper-grass
etc. , may bo grown all winter , lettuce
forming 'the principal crop. If the lettuce
tuco plants have boon started in Novom
Dor two full crops may bo taken duriiif
llio winler. The care of the bed once tin
crop is transplanted is not onerous. It ii
simply a question of watching , covering
early ut night and not uncovering in tin
morning until the sun shines fully 01
the glass , There are times when llio Imj
must bo left on the lid continuously , on
account of intense fiee/.lni : weather , yet
this is seldom , if the sun shines ,
The satisfaction of having plenty of
lettuces Is alone sullicioiit to repay thu
labor , where the heating manure may bo
had , and , as a rule , however plenty lot-
tu.ce may bo had in the oily markets , it Is
seldom liad in its best condition in the
suburbs , and never in thu country unless
raised at the homo.
The I.nut nil Ik tlio Uluhcnt.
Hoard's Dairyman : Why the first milk
drawn from u row al each milking is the
poorest , and why that drawn last , the
" . trippings , " is the richest , has been the
subject of Dr. Sturtovant's and Prof. Ar
nold's organics , and together they seem
to have given the true reasons. Prof ,
Arnold llrst says it is not because the
cow's udder is like an open vessel , in
which the cream can rise , bus there is no
.such thing as a bacKvvard motion to milk ,
or any ot Its elements , aflor it bus once
started from the point of formation , but
the duct ? converge into the one in the
teat. Dr. Sturtovant says that tlio heav
ier , moro liquid part of the milk will
inovo through the milk tubes moro easily
than the solid aad lighter portion , much
on the principle , wo suppose , thatapcbblo
would move downward in a tubii ot run
ning water fatter than the water , and
that accounts for partot the result. Professor -
fessor Arnold say ? that in addition to
this cause the ftft of the milk , after it
has passed the initial point of secretion ,
is absorbed into the general circulation
ftuster than the proteinc is , and so be
comes poorer in fat the longer it is re
tained in the udder , The faeta correspond
spend with this view , for it has been
proved that the per cent of butter fat in
creases with thu shortness of the time be
tween milklngs , that It udds wonderfully
to thu butter pi eduction of the cow Yj
milk her every six hours over milking
oneo in twenty-four hours , Wo suppose ,
thu above being into , that the cow milked
every M\ hours , if she produced moro
butter , would need additional food to
give lior the fat for her system that she
would otherwise abstract from her own
milk. .It is u fact , wo believe , in most
cases that the phenomenal cows , whim
under tent milked hr-ut
, am every oijiht - >
with the utmost regularity , and this ac
counts for part of the wonders they uor-

lie caretul in feeding nnw corn. The
old , well-dried corn slnuld bo fed lirst ,
so ns to give tlio now corn ns much time
as possible for dnlug.
Now is the time to begin on corn for
the hogs. Feed old corn , begin with only
a small quantity , and feed largely on
corn near the close , just before slaugh
tering tlio hogs.
Milking should bo done nnd milk
should be kept only where the surround
ing air is pure and frco from all objec
tionable aud tainting odors. Milking in
a foul-smelling slablo or yard allects the
fluid and imparts nn Injurious taint.
While fowls will go n long time with
out water , says a poultry writer , yet lay
ing liens will lay more eggs if their drink
ing fountains are kept well supplied
with pure , fresh and cool water. It is
said that a healthy fowl will drink twenty

Natural to Get Well.
Youth's Companion : The body , to a
large extent , is a machine which , when
disarranged , repairs itself. Physicians
tell us of the vis medicatrlx naturco the

natural to gel well. The boy's recupera

but they are very great. It is because of
this oven that the well man tends to keep

the sybtom is over full of poisoru from its

has provided for boiler than any city for

How Mrs. Ijow Wallace Disposed of
the Sultan's Present to lior
] ) US 1)1111(1.
Minneapolis Journal : Dave Wallace ,
brother of General Lew Wallace , was
reading the foreign news and his eye fell
on a dispatch about the present to Mrs.
Sunset Cox from the sultan that congress
would not lot her accept. "That's noth
ing , " ho said , with a reflective look.
"Sunset is in great luck if ho hasn't any
thing worse than congress to deal with.
When Lew was over there the sultan
wanted to do the proper caper and ho
gave him ono of tlio prettiest Georgian
girls in the harem. For a slave , you
know I suppose that's quite the custom
among those eastern people. Hu sent
her rijiht to Lew's house and Low was
down to his oflico and his wife went to
the door. She's one of thn best naturcd
women in tlio world , vou know , but
when bhe found out who that pretty girl
was and what she was sent for , she did
got about thu hottest , I suppose , that a
woman could. She told the chief of the
eunuchs that Low was out nnd ho had
bettor call again , and when Lew came
up to lunch she got down the United
Stales constitution and the revised
statutes and the broomstick and con
vinced him in about eleven seconds that
being a government ollicial and her hus
band ho couldn't accept presents from
thu sultan under any circumstances.
That's what Lew out with the old man ,
lie said that Giaour had no taste. Oh , 1
toll you Sunset's in good luck ; lie's only
got congress to handle. "

On Tuesday and yesterday visits to the

Tlio janitors were busy removing the

slick as a toboggan slide nnd made it Im
possible. for any but skilled athletes to

adopting the crawling or sliding methods
that are sometimes attended by risk nnd
always unbecoming. Sheriff Coburn was
