In the Senate the Finance Committee
presented a report from the Treasury
Department in response to a resolution
for information as to the probability of
a uenciency in the revenues oi the gov
ernment. The report shows the deficit
for the first three months of the current
fiscal year is over $21,000,000, or at the
rate of over $84,000,000 for the entire
year. It shows the usual expenditures

tures for the year would aggregate about
34,uoo,UUO, or about $21,UOu,uuo more
than the estimated expenses, and would
show expenditures over the supposed
actual receipts of over $77,000,000. The
Secretary says a definite forecast for the
whole year would be impossible, but it
is aooarent that should the nresent
conditions continue, the deficit at the
end of the year will be about 160,000.

Economy In feedlnir is one source of a
farmer's nrofit. To fal hav. rorn and
oats to eoita, calves and work horses is
extravagant and wasteful. The way to
economize and save several dollars per
head each year until they are marketable
is to cut all provender into inch lengths
(straw and fodder), nut in seDarate bins
under shelter where most convenient for
use. Cutting softens anv orovender and
rids it of sand and dust. Now take seventy-five
bushels of corn, oats, rye and
buckwheat to mill and set it eround fine

urn out the fowls some cool or damn
day, and then close all the cracks in the
house except the door. Then take a ket
tle of live coals and place on the ground
in the center; but, if there is a wood
floor, lay a flat stone In, on which set the
kettle. Throw a half pound or pound
of sulphur upon the coals and shut the
door and leave the house closed for a
few hours, and we will venture to say
that no more lice or mites will be found
in it for a few weeks thereafter. If the
house is not tight enough to admit of
thorough fumigation in the manner de
scribed, then clean as well as you can,
and whitewash with fresh lime, mixing
in a liberal quantity of sulphur, after
which throw sulphur into all the cracks
and apply kerosene oil to the roosts.
The house should be well aired before
the fowls are admitted and well venti

Be sure to feed green corn to the cows.

CHARCOAL FOB FOWLS.
We have found charcoal a very excel
lent thing to furnish our poultry with.
It may be given in a powdered state,
mixed with the soft meal feed, and a
little pulverized sulphur at the same
time may be added to advantage. But
the very best way to supply this is to
burn an ear or two of corn (unon the
cob), charring it to blackness and throw
ing it before them. Thev will devour
every kernel and so supply themselves
with a grateful and healthy substance
that sweetens the crop and serves as an
admirable tonic to the stomach. At this
season of the year the above recommen
dation will be found a valuable hint to
poultrvmen. Hens about readv to lav
win devour this prepared charcoal eager

ness of their combs afterward evince the
efficacy of this allowance. For a month
or six weeks in the early breeding season
nothing is better than this for laying
hens, given them daily.

and consequently it must be artificially
supplied. We cannot tell exactly how
much they need, and so the olan of feed
ing them stated amounts at stated times
is wrong. Put it where they can get it
themselves, and they will take just as
much as they need and no more.

Tha Vint Stovaa,
A heating apparatus called a "atuba"
(stove) was widely used among the higher
claw of Romans before the beginning of
the Christian era. This class of beaters
was fixed and immovable, besides being
ia several omer respects wholly duiannt
from the modern stove. In Germany and
Scandinavia they were used In bathrooms
and hothouses during the middle ages.
They were usually constructed of brick,
atone or tils and were of immense size.
They sometime covered the whole sld of
a 80 or 80 foot room and often extended out
Into the room aa much as 10 feet, in which
case the smooth, flat top was used for a bad
stead, the heated surface imparting an
agreeable feeling of warmth during those
cold nights of long ago, when such things
as covers were quite rare.
Cardinal Polignae of France waa per
haps the first to attempt the construction
of a stove wholly of Iron this at about the
beginning of the eighteenth century. The
Unit real improvement over the old Roman
"stuba" was brought about by Franklin in
tha year 1745. One of his efforts produced a
typical bass burner, almost perfect and a
model of workmanship. Stoves were not
used in private houses to any gnat extent
