The preparation Jof no farm seed

and must.be done by hand. This Is

alleviated by the use of a device that
Is not new. It Is simplicity Itself, con

How to Fet a Hen. - ,
Very few people know how to set a
hen properly. In the first place, re
member that you can't-make her set If
jhe doesn't want toj Cut a barrel in
two in the middle; then cut out one or
two staves, so that when, ils stood on
ts enu mere win oe plenty ot room for
the lion to pass in and out. Tlaee the
barrel on the ground.-witli the headed
nd up, and then scoop out the eartfi
to a concave, shape and. put In a very
little fine hay, and the nest Is ready
for the eggs. If It la not convenient to
put the barrel on the ground, a grass
sod placed underneath the nest will
nswer. It Is best to place the hen on
few glass or worthless eggs at first,
S she may not take kindly to the nest
oil have prepared for her. Tlnce Tier
an the nest after dnrk nnd she will get
customed to It through the uiglit. If
she seems Inclined to set after this, she
may be given the eggs which are la
nded to be hatched. If the hen Is
allowed to leave her nest every day a
small coop may be placed in front of
(lie barrel, and then she will be sure to
return to nest. She should always
have plenty of fdod. If the above di
rections are followed ami the eggs are
ell fertilized, a good brood of chickens
may be expected. Ex.
For treating seed potatoes with cor
rosive sublimate solution to prevent
cab. make a basket as follows: Take
rec strong iron hoops, 17 Inches la,
diameter, with holes punched every 3
Inches. Inside of these fasten com
mon laths. 28 Inches long, with small
holts. Place the bottom hoop 1 inch
from cihi of latns; make the bottom
from a 1-lncb board sawed circular, 10
Inches In diameter, ami fasten to the
end of the laths with nails. Iiore sev
eral holes In this bottom. Make a bail
from a strong piece of wire and fasten
to top hoop.. Suspend liy a rope pass
ing through pulley overhead. When
filled with potatoes It can be easily
raided and lowered Into a 50-gnllon
kerosene barrel containing the solution,
liaise from, the barrel and allow to
drain for a short time, when they ca
bo emptied Into tho potato boxes. By
this method none of the solution Is
wasted, and It is a short cut compnred
with the old way of tying a suck over
the bnrrel and draining the solution
from the potatoes.

ping after warm weather comes, whll
In Kero weather tho exercise of swing
ing the ax and bringing down the tree
la rather a delight than otherwise. But
after the sap starts In the trees it
easier to chop or split them than
midwinter. A very knotty and tough
tree may therefore be left standing un
til nature nns tilled it run or sap,
though tho wood will dry out slowly,
If beech wood Is cut while full of sap it
must be kept under shelter, for If ex
posed to rains water will soak In ns fast
as the sap dries out. Hprlng 'Is the
worst time of year to cut wood and
have It kept wet, and the abundance
of sap It contains Is probably tho rca
son. Most timber will keen best If cut
In July or August while the tree Is In
leaf. The leaves continue to evaporate
moisture after the tree Is down, and
this soon makes the wood dry.
Of course In winter nests are made
In the henhouse. Hens are not apt to
be broody In cold weather,- and the
short time the hen is laying her dally
egg does not cause vermin to breed In
It. ' But so soon as warm days tempt
the fowls out of doors they should be
encouraged to nest outside. About this
time too fowls will become broody, and
If nllowed to nest In the henhouse they

the outdoor nest Is made on the ground
the moisture arising from the soil will
keep the shell In good condition for the
chick when hatched to pick Its way
through. Most hens If nllowed any
range will steal their noHis, and gener
ally bring off a larger hatch of chicks
than those for which the poltry keeper
has carefully set the eggs.

Some of them ran to head off the pig
