The Caro of Horses Something Good
to Eat To Keep Young Weeds
Down Beo-Keeplnn Notes.
For jxtato culture, manure the land in
tho fall and plow it under in the spring.
It is a mistaken idea that a hen's nest
ought to do duty a year without renew
ing. By planting the red raspberry, bee
keepers would havo one of the best boo
pastures known, and a crop of fruit also.
Common wheat flour mado into paste
with cold water, applied dry, will take
out grease spots without injuring tho
most delicate fabric.
A strong solution of carbolic acid and
water, poured into holes, kills all tho
ants it touches, and tho survivors imme
diately take themselves off.
To stop tho bleeding of a horse or other
stock from a snag or wound, make an ap
plication of dry horso manure, and it will
stop tho bleeding every time.
One jwiind of green copperas dissolved
in one quart of lnjiling water will destroy
foul smells. Powdered lorax scattered
in their haunts will disperse cockroaches.
For good returns for feeding, taking
one year witli another, wo would rather
trust a bunch of even, well selected
wetheis than any other stock on the
Any man closely observant knows that
a compactly built hog with light bone,
weighing from 175 to 250 pounds, is the
selling hog for the market; and that these
weights aro tho most profitable to grow.
Ordinary buttermilk is a valuable food
not only for pigs, but for the family. It
contains 5 per cent of milk sugar, nearly
1 per cent of mineral salts, as well as
nitrogenous materials and a proportion of
Every young weed that comes up and
is ait down is one less weed to go to seed.
The way to keep down weeds is to allow
the seeds to germinate and then destroy
tho young plants. In this manner the
work is easier and better performed.
A. good way to arrage fruit in a dish
for an ornamental piece, is to set a glass
tumbler in tho center of the dish, around
and over it put a thick layer of moss;
then not nearly so much fruit will be re
quired, and it can bo arranged very hand
somely. Baked Beans : Soak one nunrt of bnnns
in water ovor night; in the morning put
them in an iron kettle with one-half
pound of salt pork and water to cover.
When tender, but not broken, take out
of the liquor with a skimmer and put in
a baking pan with the pork on top and
bake uutil brown.
White Mountain Ciko: Two cups of
sugar, one cup of butwr, one cup of sweet

Rosin in soap is a fraud. It makes
poor soap harui and greatly lessons tho
cost. Some say that rosin improves soan
because of the turpentine in it. Thev
might as well say a dry bono makes good

it was all'tuken out in tho makiiiL' and

mo ijosi dovs and tfiris wo have rvnr
known on the farm woro those whoso
parents gave them an interest in some
thing to raise or cultivate as their own.
To ahoy especially, the feeling of owner
ship is a happy, proud, hopeful one. He
feels that ho has something to work for,
to look forward to. Tho pig will in due
timo become a fat, marketable hog, the
little lamb a lino wool-bearing sheep, tho
colt a handsome horse, the chickens
grow to prolitablo liens, and tho "alf into
a lino milk cow. Parents, give your chil
dren a chanco in this direction,"and vour
farms will be better cultivated and your
homes mado happier by it.
Something to Eat Between talks: Here
is another sweet dish thoroughly to sea
son, lako threo pounds of sweet al
monds, two pounds and a half of crushed
sugar, and ono pound of strawberries.
Pound tho almonds into a kind of jmsto,
and mix them with sugar. Add tho juice
of tho strawberries, which must be prev
iously crushed. Place tho pan contain
ing these different ingredients on a slow
fire, and stir them up continuously.
N hen tho paste seems to havo obtained
a certain consistency, tako it out of the
pan and spread it out on a baking board
Iovdorid with sugar, till it is of tho thick
ness of a half-dollar. As soon as the
paste is cold, cut it out in round or square
pieces, and put them till hot and crisp,
into the kitchener, and then servo.

cocoa dilfers essentially from both tea and

tho entire substance of tho cocoa seeds is

From all accounts tho wvather is most
propitious forcropsof all kinds, especially
the early fruits, which havo been somo
damaged by tho rains of late, and the only
obstacle to the farmers reaping tho bene
fit of another profitable harvest is, the
present proppect of a low price for wheat,
but as this is early in the season to prog
nosticate, they rely ujkjii hope. In all
lines of business in tho local merchan

A niillalonlaii Trll How III Time In
Spent In f 1 1 o cc.
Counting undergraduates and special
students together, thero aro 1,140
young men between tho uges of seven
teen and twenty-four now residing at
Harvard College. Tho writer enjoyed
an interview with ono of tho BulTalo
boys, who was at homo for a brief ro
cess, a short time ago. "You will
understand." ho said, "that I am
neither a 'grind' nor a loafer, but an
average student, and the vast majority
of them live just about as I do. A
picture of my college day is about as
follows: 1 turn out anywhero between
7:40 and 8 in the morning, and go over
to Memorial to breakfast at 8 or 8:30
sometimes oarlier than that, so as to
go to chapel. Prayers como at 8:45,
and aro well attended, though wo don't
havo to go unless we chooso. After
this recitations and lectures take up
nearly the whole forenoon, and I have
ono in the afternoon three times a
week. On four days of tho week I
have three recitations, on tho others
two. Other men havo them ditTorently,
according to tho elcctives thoy take.
My studies are over for tho day at 3
p. m., and they occupy, all told, about
soven hours a day.
"I'm interested in athletics, and my

and back. Tho gymnasium Is always
crowded, and you got pretty well heat
ed up by your oxorciso, whatever it is.
Then, after a cold shower and a brisk
rubbing, you leel like a king, and don't
you just sleep nights, though! I find
that my athletic training helps my
studios greatly. Dinner comes at six,
and I generally study evenings, though
not always. I've bcon to the theater

can let your studios go and loaf, or
worse, until two or three weeks before
ttie examinations, and then cram up.
This is utter nonsense. It i3 simply
impossible to keep up with your class
in that way, unless, indeed, you can
spond $100 or if 150 for private tutors,
and oven then you wouldn't bo safe.
As for cutting recitations, if you mado
a practice of doing it oftener than twice

Interesting mid A mining Anecdotes Con.
Absent-minded to a degree. Tenny
son often forgets to whom ho is speak
ing, and onco when in full conversa
tion with Robert Browning said, ap
parently apropos do bottes: "I wonder
how Browning is getting on." "Why!"
exclaimed Robert, "I am Browning."
"Nonsense," replied Tennyson, with
nlmost an attemp't at roguish raillery,
"I know tho follow well, so you can't
toll me you aro he."
A few years ago some eiithasiastie
admirers of Tennyson gavo a large
dinner in his honor, and invited all
thoir choicest friends in tho world of
literature and art to meet him. Tenny
son, who rarely accepts an invitation,
did. for a wonder, put in an appear
anco on this occasion; but, during tho
first half of tho dinner, caused the
greatest disappointment by romnining
absolutely silent, and as if lost in tho
most profound revorio. Tho guests,
who had oxpoetod to hang on words
falling like pearls of thought from his
Hps, gazed somewhat wistfully on him,
when suddenly rousing himsolf, ho ex
claimed in a loud, stentorian voico: "I
like my mutton out in chunks!" 1 can
not help suspecting that thoro was
something of malico proponso iu this
burst of confidence, and that tho poor
man folt a not unnatural irritation at
being gapod at, and a corresponding
deslro to punish tho offondors.
An anecdoto told mo not long ago by
tho daughter-in-law is amusing, in thnt
it shows how tho greatest aro not inca

Somo very dear frlonds of Tennyson's
who had been spending somo years in
Paris, roturned to London, and anx
ious to renew old ties, wrote inviting
him to their house. But Tennyson mis
took tho day, and arriving at tho domi
cile found tho birds llown. Sitting
down to write a note of explanation, ho
had tho misfortune to throw tho con
tents of a woll-tilled Ink bottlo nil ovor
tho boautiful now white Persian car
pet. Tho maid sorvant, in answor to
his summons, appeared with a largo
jug of now milk, which sho poured ovor
the o.Tending Ink stain. "I'll give you
live shillings, my good girl, my very
good girl," confided Tennyson in much
agitation, "if you'll only got rid of that
abominable ink before your master and
mlstross como homo." And together
on their hands mid knees pootund Abi
gail rubbed and rubbed at tho wretched
carpet until not a spot romnlnod. Tuu
girl earned hor live shillings, and when
a few weeks nftorwardsTonnyson wont
to dlno with his friond ho had ovory
reason to believe that she had told no
tales. At any rate tho host and hostess
displayed tliolr gorgeous earpot with
out nuy feign of consciousness. London
