it is being injured by insects and di sense

Treasury Department are quietly prepar

admiumtration to guide it in its own
views of the vital suliject. Several plans
have Ih'cii suggested to Secretary Car

templates an entire change in thu money
system of the United States. In short,
tlie plan is to pass a specie resumption
act, redeeming the various forms of
money now used in the country and is
suing instead United States Treasury
notes, w hose value shall ulwavs be fixed.
There are at present nine dili'erent forms
of money in circulation, and the fact of
wide difference between the value of

oretically of a parity, is one of the causes
w hich lias suggested the plan proposed.

Effect of Nitrogenous Fertil.

The Man Who Feeds Haphazard u
Most Likely to Make Very
Careful observations made at tlie V;.. t
souri experiment station have been fo",.
muiaieu into a series 01 practical roles r
for breeding, of which the following ars
a brief synopsis : f
1. Animals should be led as much s f
they can digest without injury to health.
2. Thev should be fed a " balanced n. '
tion "that is, one in which the various
ingredients are adapted to their needs '
and the purpose in feeding. k
3. Food is required to maintain animal f
heat; hence animals exposed lo cold re f
quire more food than those provided f
with warm but well-ventilated quarters.
The man, therefore, who is kind to iik t
cattle is kind to himself. ;
4. The digestive capacity of animals i
may be stimulated by a variety of food i
salt, etc ' i
With regard to the substances which !
enter into the composition of foods fori'
stock, usually arranged in six groups, i;
the following definitions are given: ' f
1. Water The amount of this varies f
with the kind of food supplied. While 1
pure water has no nutritive value in it-1
self, it plays no unimportant part in the '
animal economy, and should be freeh i
supplied and o. the best attainable qual- :'
2. Ash This is what remains after the ;
combustible portions have been burned '
away. It supplies the mineral ingredi
eron to tbp flnimnl body.
3. Protein (pronounced pro-tee-in)- i
Is the nitrogenous portion of the food, !
and goes to form muscle and all other ;
nitrogenous parts of the body, aiding al- ?
most in the formation of fat. It is the
most valuable of all the food ingredients.
4. Fat This substance produces ani- (
mal neat, or is stored up in tne Doily M 1
fat for future use. ' j'
5. Carbohydrates include the starches, f
gums, sugars, etc., and produce fat and
0. Fiber This substance has alxrat
the same composition as the carbohv .
drates, but is much less digestible, and ;
has but little if anv nutritive value. i
It is by a knowledge of these various S
ingredients as combined in dili'erent i
foods that scientific feeders are able to r
secure the best results, w hether they are '
feeding for milk or muscle. A man who t
feeds haphard, with w hatever he has on t
hand, may happen to hit on the right r
ration, but the chances are he will make '
very serious mistakes. The subject for
rations for cattle is one of the deepest '
with which stock owners have to do. '(
FACTS ABOUT FERTILIZERS,
As the results of experiments at the
Storrs Agricultural School it lias bnn j
found that, while the addition of nun- J
eral fertilizers increased the yield of f
clover, it had no material eflect on the j
yield of grasses. In general the yield of
hay was increased with the quantity of I
nitrogen supplied; but the mineral fer-
tinkers when used alone were applied at
Some of the facts obtained are well
worth attention. For example, the ad
dition of 100 pounds of nitrate of soda
per acre (containing twenty-five pounds
of nitrogen) in addition to the fixed min
erals gave an average profit during a (io
riod of three years of $1.40 per acre.
Three hundred' and twenty pounds of
nitrate of soda (fifty pounds of nitrogen)
gave an average profit of $5.24 per acre,
while 480 pounds of nitrate of soda (seventy-five
pounds of nitrogen) yielded a
proht of only $2.45 per acre. The re-
turns of prolit from the use of 320 pounds
of nitrate of soda were very uniform, be- -
ing $5.10, $5.12 and $5.49 respectively for
the three years. ' I
The application of nitrogenous fertil- jj
izers, it was found, increased the per-
centages of protein in the crop, and the I
increase was somewhat in proortion to I
the amount of nitrogen supplied. The I
increase in the amount of nitrogen in f
the crop did not, however, equal the in- J
creased amount of nitrogen supplied in I
the fertilizers, which would appear to
show that the plants were not able to I
utilize all the nitrogen supplied. i
It is plain, therefore, that it is not
profitable to apply more of this cxpen- i-
sive ingredient than the plants can read-
ily assimilate. (.
TO FATTEN DUCKS.
An Knglish contemporary savs: First,
select clean, shady yards; if' thev are j
grassy, so much the better. Do not pat I
more than 100 birds together, giving
them about six or eight square feet of
room per bird. Begin fattening when
the birds are eight weeks old. The feed
may consist of 70 per cent of cornineal.
per cent of irluten. 10 ner cent of
Bowker's animal meal and 5 per cent of
wheat bran. This should be carefully
mixed and made quite moist, but not
sloppy. The birds can eat it more read
ily when it is a little stickv, and do not
waste it so much. The feeding trough
should be five to six feet two for each
100 birds. Feed regularly three times a
day at sunrise, noon and sunset, water
ing at the same time. In warm weather
the ducks should be watered between
meals in addition. Be sure and feed all
they will eat clean. If there is anv food
left in the troughs at the end of twenty
minutes, take it up clean so that the
birds may not be cloyed. Keep cracked
oyster shells and coarse sand in small
boxes within reach. Give preen clover
or corn fodder once each dav say at 8
. m. what they will eat each "day.
Pekin ducks, carefully grown and fatted
in this wnv, should" at ten or eleven
weeks old tip the scales at twelve pomi'ls
per pair. That is about the average
Pon't cool off the stables before milk
ing. It makes the cows hold up their
milk, and frequently thev become fret
ful and kick.
Sweet cream should le churned at
lower temperature than sour, and it
takes a longer time for it to separate;
otherwise the same rules applv to lmth.
The foals of 1H!3 need the In'-st of care.
Hive them food adapted to their needs.
