The attempted fashion of placing theso
towering trimmings at the back of tho

and so died a natural death.

A good hog-housoor housos if ninny

I have built six for my own use since I
lirst began farming, and think that in
tho iater-bullt' ones I have combined
convenience and oconotnv, and will tell
what kind of a hog-house I liko am
1 no first liog-liousos I built were
made twelve feet wide, but I have now
had four that wcro eight feet wide, nnd
I find tnis width ample to aceommo
dale as ma y hogs as can cat at tho
trough, ami so I rocommoud a house of
this width. It is sometimes dcslrnbln
to move a house a short distance, and
so 1 usunlly make them eight by six
(ecu reel, and unit that three men can
roll one of them from fifty to ouo linn
dred foot in a few hours if it is thought
best to change the location. A house
night by sixteen feet will accommodate
from twelve to fifteen storo hogs
through tho winter, and is largo enough
to fatten ten largo hogs in. Tho bill of
lumber for a house of this sizo built as
I direct, is ns follows:

This, at $1.7o per 100 feet, will cost
SIC. 711. to which add 1.000 shingles at
$!).7o, and 1 for naile nrd hlngos, and
it brings the total cost of material for
the house to S-M. IS, The farmer, if he
will follow my directions, need not
employ a carpenter to build such a
house, and two hands can complete
one in two davs or less.
After the foundation is toady which
may he locust posts sot well in tho
ground, bowlders or mnsoniy, if pre
ferredplace your short sills across
the ends and level them, ami then set
the lloor j ilsts on (lie sills, so that the
two outside ones will come exactly to
the ends of the sills, Rritlgo the joist
in (lie center and then lav tho lloor.
lloor of inch lumber, laid double, is
much better than one of two-inch
planks, and will cost less, for the lin
ing can l)e laid with cracks three or
four inches wide.
After tlie floor is laid, cut your posts
four and a half feet, high (or the roar
and seven aud a half for the front.
Saw them perfoetly square at both
ends, set them up at the corners, anil
fasten them by what, the carpenters
call "toe-nailing;" thorn spiko a two

rear, ror a pinto, put up your two
end ratters, setting them exactly Hush
with the sills, so that tho weather
boarding will be nailed to the sill at
the bottom ami the rafter at the top.
You will need one run of nail-ties,
which can he ship-lapped to the posts,
and when these are up you are ready
to cover tho building.
Use siding fourteen feet long cover
ing it, ami it will cut one length for
the front and one for the tvar. The
roof of this house slopes but one way,
and it is best to have the front or
high part of the roof toward either
the west or south, if the roof is made
to project a little, and finish with a
light cornice, it will present quite a
Make a good trough and fasten it se
curely. 1 have never found any thing
better than a good V-trough; tlie front
of it should bo of two-inch lumber, but
I the back part, which come against the
side of the building, may bo inch. It
Is next to impossible to keep hogs
clean, aud the house free from bad
odors, if lliey are conlined to n single
floor, but by making an outside pen,
with a hoard lloor, from twelve to
eighteen inches lower than tlie feeding
floor, and keeping it always supplied
with an absorbent, 1 have no dillicultv
in keeping mv hog-houses from becom
ing malodorous. So I always raise the
lloor of the main house, aud then lay a
lloor of nearly the same sue either
at tlie rear or one end of the house. As
this Hour need not be laid double, it
will take but 12S feet of lumber to make
it, and it can rot on any cheap old
scantlings thrown tint on tlie ground for
mud sills. Kudos it with a sub
stantial fence, made without cracks,
and furnish tlie hogs some old straw
or corn fodder as often as they require
it, nnd they will enjoy working it
over, and will shred it up and make
good manure of it sooner than any
Kvcry hog limit o of this Mat should

so that it can bo divided into two purls
when desired, as an nppariment eight

and rear, and just far enough apart
so that an inch board can bo dropped

Industry, is apt to be taken as it stands
by the outside world, I shall give a few
facts of such tradesmen as I havo had
Carpenters, f0 to CO cents. Tlio first
figure is out of all question. For about
a year I employed a carpenter oh" and
on at CO cents a day that is, when time
permitted. He would begin work .at
about 9 a. m., "work" till C p. 'm., and
devote about thrco hours a day to
smoking and thinking lie was a great
thinker in his way and eating, and
the work lie did in tho remaining
hours with the awkward toys that pass
for tools here, an Knglish or an Amer
ican carpenter would do in one hour,
which brings a Japaneso carpenter's
wages to GO cents per hour, or taking
the day at eight working hours, to$ t.SO
per day. And I have employed carpen
tors at 7o cents and SI per day with the
Plasterers, lo to ,r5 cents per day; to
be had at. that rate at. about a week's
notice. 'J he year before last I had to
employ two plasterers to repair a place
in tho wall of a house whore a.pioco of
plaster of about two feet square had
fallen out. The two artists turned up
at 10 a. in., nnd, sitting down lipon a
couple of empty wine-cases, lit their
pipes. At about 10:110 a. in. one of
them approached the damaged place
within a yard, took a mental photo
graph of it, an I sat down. At 11 a.
in. a mutual friend appeared, who was
warmly welcomed, and, after smoking
a pipe or two, amused them by stnnd
ing'on his head, and by that time they
bad got very hungry and made a pause
of two hours for tillin. Pipes again.
I'lien the one who had carefully sotind-
d the wall knocked another piece of
plaster down. Pipes again. Hy 5 p.
m. they had made the hole about three
times it original size, and were so
thoroughly exhausted that thov left oil".
Next day a stray drop of water, where
ever it may havo come from, lighted
on one inflow's nose and made them
oneludo it was going to rain, so that
no work could be done in the after
noon. Well, to cut matters short,
those two square feet of plaster that

or American plasterer would have sent
one of his boys and boxed his ears if
he did not como back in an hour.

v painter at present, aud am willing to
give 10 cents per day, but the man will
not work under o0 cents, and says it
will take him eight or ten davs to do

which the work can bo done aud should

DO ANIMALS REASON 7
ttow n Newfoundland Dor Outwitted m
Do animals mason? Ihcro arc so
ninny shades of belief upon this subject
that it is a diflicult ono to decide. One
incident came under my notice that
showed plan, cunning and intelligent
action, certainly, if not reason as an
Our ship was lying in Port Lou'u
harbor. For fear of hurricanes, we
wore moored, stem nnd stern, to heavy
sunken anchors. Upon our port-side,
onh a few fathoms away, was a lofty
East India rice-ship, moored in the
same manner. A large number of pets
on board the ricc-slup attracted our
attention it seemed a friendlv me
My interest centered upon a magnifi
cent black Newfoundland dog and a
very largo monkey. Tho monkey's
sole ambition seemed to bo to torment
the dog by dropping things upon him
from above, or by jumping towards
him while trying to sleep, and then
scam enng away up the rigging,
where the dog could not follow. No
place was safo for the dog to take i
nap. The monkey was only safe while
aloft, for tho dog was the stronger,
and delighted in slinking the monkey
whenever lie could get at him.
One very hot Sabbath afternoon I
was sitting under the awning, trying
to read; just opposite me, under 'the
shadow of the poop-dock of the rice-
ship, lay the Newfoundland dog,
stretched out in the most complete and
utter abandonment of exhaustion, ap
parently fast asleep. The monkey was
upon the top of the forward hotisy. evi
dently studying some mischief. When
a man is studying some diflicult. matter
he will some times scratch Ins head.
The monkey scratched himself all over.
it taking more counter-irritant, per
haps, to elaborate his plan. 1 became
inteiv-crl in watching tho develop
ment of his scheme
He soon jumped down from the
house and sauntered aft towards the
dog, who took no notice whatever of
him. He passed close to tho dog and
climbed up to the poop-ijeek. sitting
iIwwh just over the clog, and began a
1 he dog was deaf to all this, so the
monkey jumped down upon the deck
uul bega V "hunt for a bone," a plan
that never failed t interest the dog;
but now he did not move. I thought
the dog was sound asleep, the monkey
very evidently thought so, too, for now
he proceeded to put into execution a
plan that, I think, he matured when
itting on the lorward house. He qui
tlv r.m forward to the fore rigging
uul up fore-to, then taking tlio
niahi-top-gnllant stay he ran up that to
the niain-top-gallant yard, then down
to the main-top; after again making
sure that tho dog was last asleep he
ran up to the niizzeii-top-gallant stay
and tbk'ii down to the ini:zen-top; here
he sat down and, apparently, had a
hearty laugh at the trick lie was about
to play upon the dog. Having enjoyed
his laugh, he very cautiously ran down
the mizzcu stay, until ho reached a
point just over the dog, but somo
twenty feet above him. Once more he
proceeded to try the dog; not a muelo
moved. Tiie mnnki jumped up and
down, hung down, holding on with one
hand only, but 110 movement of the
dog showed itself. So, getting himself
together, he measured, carefully, the
distance and position, and then let go
and jumped for the dog.
Instantly all was changed on deck;
the dog sprang up witli ears and tail
ereer. wide awake, and ready to give
him .1 cordial welcome. Of course, it
was like a flash of lightning. The
monkey saw whtt a s?rapo ho wm in;
his ocreams and cries were pitiful; ho
would have gladly stopped and jumped
back, but the laws of gravity wcro
against nun, and down lie came onto
the dojj. Then began the sharpest
fight I ever saw. I bey were evenly
matched, but the monkey was so fright
ened tliKt he could not make so good a
tight as usual.
Round and round thev went, while
tlie hnir flew everywhere; at last, get
ting a ohance he sprang into th; main
rigging and ran up to the roval vard,
crvinT all the way. Hero he staved
two or three days, nursing Ids wounds,
and evidently trying to understand
why his plan f.siled. The dog barked,
ami, in spito of tho heat, ran up and
down the dock with every show of de
light nt having out-witted tho monkey.
1 think now, as I thought tliun, that
the dog was not asleep, but too nearly
exhausted by the heat to care what, the
monkey did. so long as ho kept out of
reach; but when he .had gone mi far
that he could not get back he Mai
