REVOLT IS AT HAND
Strike Spreads to Every Industry
In Russian Capital.
DEATH MEETS PLEA.
ANGRY HOBS PARADE STREETS
Alarm Is Greater Than Over News or
Defeat in Far Eastern War
Czar Is Guarded.
St. Petersburg, Jan. 21. With riot
us strikers to the number of hundreds
of thousands parading the streets of
the capital city, and the continual
spread of the feeling of unrest through
out the empire, the Russian govern
ment is in a terrible predicament
Even worse than the news of the disas

official quarters over the domestic Bit
nation. Troops are guarding the pal

not deemed wise to call upon them to

Late Friday evening an organized
mob attacked the Marcus cardboard
factory and attempted to throw the
manager from the window, and it was
reported that the strike fever had ex
tended to the Alexandrovsk machine
works, where 7,000 men are employed;
the Baltic cartridge factory, owned by
the government, and Baron Streglitz'
cloth factory, the latter employing
3,000 people of both sexes ; the state
distillery and the Kaller and Beckman
distilleries. The employes of the
, Russo-American rubber company, the
"Youkoff hoop factory, and a new cotton
spinning establishment were the latest
acquisitions to the tied-up industries
At the latter works the police were un
able to control the mob of strikers and
the military were ordered to their
assistance. It was learned-late Friday
night that the employes of the State
Playing Card factory, the Vagounine
paper mills, employing 1,000 t hands,
the Atlas machine works, the Wolff

large plants had joined m the Btrike
The city is almost in darkness, owing
to the strike of electric light employes,

St. Petersburg, Jan. 23. Yesterday

Washington, Jan. 19 Count Cas-

afternoon handed Secretary-Hay's reply
to Russia's complaint that China is

maintain a correct attitude towards
both belligerents. Russia is urged to
abide by the agreement confining the
war to definite limits.

that the battleship Pallada and the

To Get Kicgs in Winter.
A successful poultry raiser was once
asked how to successfully get eggs
during the winter season and his reply
was, "hatch winter chickens from winter-laid
eggs." While this is by no
means the only thing to do. It Is, be
yond question, tbo foundation of the
whole matter. It Is impossible to have
pullets that will lay eggs during the
winter season, in profitable quantities.
when these pullets are hatched from
late spring or early summer-laid eggs.
Notice we say "in profitable quanti
ties," for the late-hatched pullet will
lay some during the winter, but Its ten
dency is toward laying at the same sea
son as the egg was laid from which
she was hatched. Here, then, is the
start for those who seek winter eggs,
and if the reader is out for this sort
of business he should plan for an incu
bator to be set at work In early Feb
ruary. Then it must be remembered
that the early-hatched bird, especially

will require unusually good care, so
that comfortable brooding houses must
be provided, with room for txerclse,
and in places where there will be no
danger of the chicks getting damp or
wet If the brooder room is cool it
will do no harm, for the chicks will
have the brooder to go to for warmth;
but the room must not be damp or wet.
Chicks raised in this manner and given
a good range during the following sum

shape and produce eggs at a profit in

Troubles of Horses.
In the winter season of the year,
when most farm horses have rather an
easy time of life, there is likely to be
more or less liver and kidney trouble
among them, due, to some extent, to
the liberal feeding and the Inactive
life. Oftentimes these troubles develop
In an attack of acute indigestion, fre
quently mistaken for colic. -The first
thing to do with a horse that Is not
eating well is to give a dose of nux
vomica three times daily until it re
covers Its appetite. The dose is twen
ty, drops of the tincture given on the
tongue; just before eating. The oats
given the animal should be ground
and In the grain giveh in the morning
should be placed a half ounce of pow
dered nitrate of potash. Then prepare
the following general condition pow
der, which acts well on both kidneys
and liver, and give the animal a heap
ing tablespoonful once a day, prefera
bly at noon. In two pounds of ground
flaxseed mix four ounces of powdered
gentian, five ounces of ginger, three
ounces , of powdered sulphate of iron
and two ounces of powdered charcoal.
See that all the Ingredients are mixed
thoroughly. This powder will tone up
the system of the horse generally.
A Wagon . Tongue.
It is not always possible to have a

Change Sheep Paatnrea.
The sheep pasture must sometimes
havo a rest from the sheep on account
of the deposit of the eggs of intestinal
worms of sheep. In some old pastures
these rggs are spread by the millions.
This is particularly dangerous ground
to be fed over by young lambs. The
man who has more than one pasture
will find himself in an advantageous
position in case of "trodble with Intes
tinal worms. He can simply change
his sheep run from one pasture to the
other. Such a change is not necessary '
unless there are signs of the worms
among the sheep.
