Tlio jirontiiblo hog for the nverogo
fiinner Is the one that is quickly grown ,
fattens without delay , nnd can boslaufr.li-
lured before It begins to consume the
food laid up for the winter , writes ! ' . 1' .
Smith In the Practical Farmor. Such a
hor. cannot ho obtained from any of the
faiiioim juiro breeds , which answer to the
purpose of the Inrgc swlno breeders but
not to the purpose of tlio Mntill farmer
who nils-es his own pork. There must
bo Homo cross which will supply this an
imal , which may also bo called tlio gen
eral purpose hog. A good cross that
will hold Ills qmilitlcH without HO much
watching to prevent deterioration , and
one which has individual excellence , is
not easily to bo obtained. Yet none of
our domestic animals are so cas-ily
moulded as the hog , and In breeding for
Boino particular purpose tho'owncr has
many qualities at hand which ho can
perpetuate. The pedigree mattws not
to much , M ) long as the breeding ani
mals which are to niako the cross arc of
pure blood and boar the distinctive
miirks of their breed on thorn ,
Given these good parents , offspring
that will combine the good qualities of
the two may bo rnibcd Kiu'ccssfully. The
farmer wants n cross that will convert
his surplus corn into meat , making the
greatest number of pounds for the
amount of corn consumed , and at tlio
earliest ago possible. Many think that
Ktich a pig it ) found in the Poland China
und others In tlio Uerhfcliire , but a cross
between thc.so two in much superior to
cither. There is nil increase of frame
and llcsh from the Poland China nnd n
liner grained quality of meat from the
Berkshire , and perhaps n little more
energy and hardiness in addition.
Unless a pig conies to maturity soon
nnd devolopes a largo frame and covers
It quickly with solid meat , there is very
little prollt in raising one. A pig should
bo slaughtered early , for after they
reach a certain point they do not take
on flesh enough to pay for feeding them.
iSuuh a , cross at the a o of eight or ten
months should weigh from 1200 to 2oO
pounds , and up to this time it pajs well ,
but after that period its prolit begins to
< leclino. The same cross will probably
roach -100 pounds in eighteen or twenty
months.but-this extra weight will hardly
Bulllco for the food consumed.
CrcsK-Ilroc4l8 \Vluter Layers.
Tlio pullets of the cross-breeds ,
Plymouth Hocks and brown Leghorns ,
have proved such excellent winter lay
ers that I should like to say a word in
their praise , writes a farmer s daughter
to the Country Gentleman. Some of them
began laying before they wore six
months old and have continued steadily
over since. The winter 1ms been unusu
ally mild , I know ; still , I think some
credit is duo my improved stock , because
my nearest neighbor , who has about the
tit mo numb.'r of hens , gets only one-
tenth as many eggs as 1 do. It makes
mo feel very proud to bring in a nice
basketful every day. while she can put
all she gathers in the palm of one hand.
I took her out to the poultry yard the
last time she came to see mo and showed
her my pretty red-combed beauties ; they
lire so gentle that they alwavs come run
ning when they see me , and range them-
eclvcs as if on exhibition , so ns to show
ofT their bright , glossy plumage and
dazzling combs and wattles to the best
advantage. The color of the cross
breed is either a dark Plymouth Rock
with white lobes and moderately tall
combs , or the pretty brown and yellow
of the broxyn Leghorns , with tholarger
and sometimes the fallintr combs pecu
liar' to that breed. In either case the
cross SH larger than the brown Leg
horns , though smaller than the Plymouth
Hocks , hut it lias always a prcttv trim
Khapo and an upright , graceful carriage.
I am sorry to say , however , thai the
pullets inheriting the Plymouth Rock
color also retain the propensity to sit so
characteristic of that breed. Tliov are
much moro easily broken , though , "than
those of the pure breed , two davs of sol
itary confinement being usually amply
Bulllciont.
_
IJctler Apple Trees.
On a recent trip through Kansas and
tlio southwest , our attention was partic
ularly attracted to the fruit , of which in
many sections the yield is enormous , but
the quality abominable , Bays the St.
Louis Mngiixino. "Why do not fruit
growers use moro euro in selecting their
trees ? In a town in eastern Kansas wo
examined hundreds of loads of apples ,
but seldom fpund one that was fit to eat.
They were dry , insipid and tasteless , bo-
Bides being bad keepers. The refrain of
most of the farmers wo spoke to about it
was that only those varieties would pro-
cluco well in that f-cctlon. This is mere
guess-work. Some ono farmer years ago
tried a russet or a greening and it
failed. Henceforth the question has
lioen bottled for that section of coun
try , until some enterprising farmer shall
plant an orchard of trees of the best
varieties. Until then the sumo old ro-
Jrain will go up and apples will not bo
worth the raising. Xoto tlio difference
us you go further east , look and taste of
the luscious varieties of apples raised in
Ohio , for instance. Hut for years and
years it was the same tliore , in early
chivy , nnd until the farmers found that it
did not pay to raise Hiicli fruit' , the crop
was not improved. Wo my to the west
ern farmer , root out the Hen Davis sort
of apples and plant trees of known good
quality , and you will grow rich , for good
upplos are growing in favor every day
aim command the best price.

' ] am greatly interested in a now
equash called the fordhook , and it is the
result of tlto careful work of a most use
ful Nebraska citizen , Mr. O. P. Coy of
AVntorloo. Tills fordhook is a little fel

icrc.Tno future of vine crops on the Amer
ican desert Is a startling ono , if wocotild
only see it. Millions of dollars worth of
food products will bo sent yearly from
Nebraska nnd Kansas in the next centu
ry , which will grow from not only melon ,
cucumber , bquasli and pumpkin vines ,
but from other vines not now known to
this country. _
Tomatoes for Cows.
Wo had over a thousand bushels of
tomatoes , last fall , says a correspondent
in the Rural Canadian and the Ottawa
market was so ( 'lulled wo could not Boll
i third of thorn. "Wo commenced feed
ing them to the cows and found that they
ate them greedily and improved in milk
ing. After my experience lust season I
determined to plant each year my toma
toes in a Held into which I can turn the
cows in the fall , and will have the satis
faction of knowing that no tomatoes ,
green or ripe , will bo lost. After the
llrst frost last fall wo pulled our tomato
vines and collactcd them , with tlio green
tomatoes adhering to them. Into piles ,
where they remained a couple of weeks
before wo cculd lot the cows into the
field. By that time wo found that a
largo percentage of the green tomatoes
had ripened and the tomato louvcs had
cured. The cows could not bo kept away
from those tomato piles. They rooted
them over with their noses and horns
and cleaned up everything but the bare
vines , and at nights as long as the toma
toes lasted they would como into the
balnfnllv full and their udders distended
with milk. I leave it to scientists to say
whether the milk producing element
was in she tomato itself or whether it
supplemented some other feed to make a
wcll-bal rnccd milk ration. Of course it
would not pay to raise tomatoes as feed
for cows ; but market gardeners need not
allow their surplus tomatoes to go to
waste while they have cows to feed.
Cnttlo.
Experiments have recently been con
cluded in Chicago which , it is alleged ,
will bo of the greatest importance to
the packing industry and to veterinari
ans , many of whom have hitherto
thought that actinoinycosis , or lumpy
jaw , was not a contagious disease and
that the meat of cattle alToetod by it
was not injurious , Members of the live
stock boards of several states have su-
porintoiutod the killing of a number of
cattle nlllicted with lumpy jaw and ex
amined the bodies , says the Kansas
Farmer. A dispatch states that eighty-
nine head of afllleted cattle were killed
and examined. The objoctwas to ascer
tain to what extent the dibcaso affected
the entire system so as to make the
meat of such cattio unfit for food. The
result of the examination was thatin
about 00 per cent of the cases investi
gated the disoitso was found to have
alTccted the internal organs and the
llesh.
llesh.Mr.
Mr. Armstrong of the United States
bureau of animal industry was among
the distinguished experts present. Drs.
1'aquin and Grange , export micrdsoop-
ists , took a number of specimens for ex
amination and innoculation. They ox-
poet to corroborate what has been as
sorted by German und French scientists
that lumpy jaw is a contagious disease.
The Year's Lesson to Orclmrdlsts.
There is a le. son for the western farm
er in the study of the fruit subject this
year , says the Nebraska Farmor. In
fact ovorv year presents strong reasons
for the planting of fruit trees and plants
as a source of prollt. This year the les
son Is specially strong , since the sale of
fruit at good round prices Is an easy
matter. All farm crops bring good
prices to bosurobuttho price of nothing
on the farm will equal tnat of fruit.
Corn at 50 cents a bushel pays well , but
at best can only go fifty or sixty bushels
to the aero , while an orchard will bear
several hundred bushels to the aero of
apples which will bring moro per bushel
than the corn. A case to the point is
that of afarmerin Nebraska who refused
an offer of $4,000 for the product of his
thirty acuo orchard , us the fruit hung on
the trees. Any of tlio western atates
could use the product at homo of a great
many moro trees than arc now planted ,
and the question is , who are going to bo
the ones who will exorcise judicious fore
sight anil take advantage of the oppor
tunity to acquire money. A forty aero
orchard is as sure to bo n long continued
source of income as anything wo short
sighted mortals can start going.
Ituttcr
In a paper upon "Gutter Mailing on
the Farm , " read by Thomas Conwiiy atone
ono of the Wisconsin farmers' institutes ,
occurred the following in regard to but
ter packages : .
Iii preparing packages I prefer to
throw in salt ana then scald , cover up
and the steam will make it piklu tight.
Use cold water to rinse and rub inside
with dry salt. Never but poor butter in
fancy pucliagos , and when you can make
good butter you can safely brand it. In
finishing top of package use dairy cloth
on top of butter , then make a paste of
dairy salt and put It over cloth. It will
prevent to of butter from getting over
heated' and will also guard against
flavor of lid. Remember that good butter -
tor imirtt have perfectgrrin , High , fresh
flavor , desirable color and a sufficient
amount of best quality of salt , that it
must bo put up in ufean , bright pack
ages of bust quality and of a style the
market demands.

CHICAGO TRIES THE EDCO ,
An Electric Oar System Which Does Away
with Overhead Wire.
A VERY SUCCESSFUL TEST MADE ,
The OJllclaN Moro than BntUilctl with
tlio Operation of the Storage
Jlaltcry Ilotli Swift
nnd Safe.
Electricity as a moans of street car
[ ) ropulslonon the storage systemshowed
Itself to bo an unqualified success in the
test of the Edco car on North Clark
street In Chicago last Saturday after
noon. An ordinary streetcar wont spin
ning over the tracks from the limits car
jams to Lawrence avenue and back
without any apparent means of locomo-
tfon except a man in front who occasion
ally turned a crank , says the Chicago
Herald. There were no horses attached
; o it , no slot between the tracks where a
cable could bo attached , no steam power ,
no smoke and no overhanging wire. It
scorned to go along of its own accordnot
retarded in the least by the carload of
: iooplo who had jostled each other for a
chance to lake a ride. It was a complete
.Humph for the Accumulator company
of New York , and its agent , William
[ lood , was the most pleased man that
lias boon seen slnco'tho democratic land
slide a week or two ago. Tlio otllcors of
the North Side cable company were also
deligted and entirely satisfied with the
test. Hardly a flaw could bo found in the
storage system for the car wont over the
tracks as rapidly and smoothly as the
cable curs , a little hotter some of the
ofllcors said. It is something that street
car men have wanted for a long tlmoand
if It keeps up its record of yesterday , it
is almost wife to say that the poor old
street car horse will bo given a long and
unlimited vacation and ho will have to
seek another Held of usefulness.
Horses could never attain the speed
exhibited by the Eiko car , they could
not have pulled the load that filled the
cor and its trailer. Tlio deficiencies of
the old system seemed to stick out all
over ana everybody agreed that a now
era in the street car was coining. It
was nicely expressed in the remark of
Mr. Street , the llrst engineer of the
dummy on the old Evansville road in
180-1 , who muttered as ho jumped oil' af
ter a three-mile ride : "Well , things
have changed. " They had changed so
much and so rapidly that the people
who llvo along North Clark street north
of the street car barns could hardly bo-
Hove their eyes as they saw a common
street car go dashing up the street
without ahorse a cable or anything.
The cable had accustomed them to a
similar sight , but such a thing never be
fore happened right before their oyos.
Butchers with their red polka dotted
aprons , servant girls with dishcloths in
their hands , men , women and children
would rush out to see the sight. Even
the conductor on an out-bound car would
stop taking fares and go out on the back
platform and look at the strange sight.
Tlio horses wcro not used to it , und
trembled as It rumbled by.
And after all it is a simple tiling when
it is examined. There isn't much ma
chinery about it , nothing very delicate
that is apt to break and nothing particu
larly expensive. The system may bo ex
plained by saying the car carries its
electricity with it. Under the seats in
the car are eighty-eight batteries or
cells arranged two abreast the wliolo
length of the car. They are all con
nected by wires and with two motors ,
which occupy a modest space in the
center of the car under the flooring.
Those motors are like those used in cars
run by the overhead system , and are
built much after the same pattern.
Each cell contains two volts of electric
ity , making 170 in all in each car , and
with this power each car is calculated to
run from twenty-flvo to forty miles with
out having Ino batteries recharged.
Seven incandescent lamps are also sup
plied , three in the car , two on the plat
forms , and ono at eaoli end of the roof
for headlights. The entire control
of the car or train rests with the
driver , who manipulates two cranks at
the front end. Through them ho ib able
to attain live degrees of speed , the slow
start and the four increasing grades.
Each rate of speed is accompanied by an
almost imperceptible shock , as it cannot
attain a maximum speed gradually. The
driver's left hand wheel is divided into
live parts , each movement changing the
arrangement of the cells to give the do-
slred results. On the car used yesterday
there was the regular friction brake con
nected by an automatic arrangement
with a crank , so that the car can bo
stopped in as short a time as any car ,
mueiishortor _ than a cable train , it is
claimed. The movement is easy , and
that jolting , swaying motion is hardly
noticed. It is the custom to replenish
the batteries after twenty-flvo miles have
run , so as not to exhaust them too much.
A necessary adjunct of the Edco system
is the Edco dynamo which supplies the
electricity. The ono in use at the cat-
barn yesterday was of " 10 volts , 150 am-
phoros , with a speed of l7o , enabling
it to completely roohargo a car in less
than throe hours. In the improved pat
terns the batteries can bo shifted , and
while ono is being charged another sot is
ready for uso.
Among those in the car were E. II.
Shcafo , S. 13. Wadsworth , C. O , Etnyro ,
street railway men of Council UlutTs , In.
Tlio car made the trip to Lawrence
avenue , three miles nnd a quarter , in
sixteen minutes , and returned in thir
teen mlnutos , M. Pfatincher , an ex
port electrician , was at the crank and
gave exhibitions of the different rates ol
speed , and showed to the satisfaction ol
every ono that the Edeo car could do
what it promised. It was Homelhing
hardly expected by Mr. Hood , but ho of
fered no objection , having perfect con >
Hdonco that it would maku no difference.
The bouncing motion caused by the unevenness -
evenness when going at a good speed
w s tempered by the extra weight , and
the train went smoothly. On the return
so many people got on to got a now BOIV
sntion that the motor was pushed to it
maximum capacity. A sudden stop to
avoid a tardy wagon throw a wire out of
gear for a few minutes , and the crowd
who had paid tholr 5 cents found
themselves a mile from the cable
with the road * blocked. Tin
wrecking wagon came thundering to the
rescue and dragged the- train a block or
two. Uy that time the motor worked
all right again , and the people who
thought that the new arrangement had
been tried nnd found wanting , were de
prived of the opportunity of croaking.
The car reached the station , going at a
good rate of speed and finished its work
for that day.
"Tho Edco sonms to bo a perfect sue
cess , " said Superintendent Roach , "and
as far as I can see , it fills the bill. I
have no fault to find with it. "
"I am pleased with it , " volunteered
Mr , Thrtody , "and much surprised. It
dees its work well Just what the com
pany will do is not krjown yet. " Judge
Jamlopon said ho Kited it. "If wo use
it , " said ho , "wo Jlh have to got a per
mil from the couiidli' ' as now wo only
have a right to use Jiorso power on this
lino. It is a groat'thlmr In my estima
tion , and I wouldn't bo surprised to see
it take tlio place eli the street car horse
in tlio city. I have nothing to Ray but
approval. "
That was the general sentiment , and
Mr. Hood wont Ttjin'o ( moro than satis
fied , and confident that the Edco has a
great future before It.
