SThe Day of Costly Silos

The day of costlv silos is naat. sava
Director Wliitclier of the New Hamp
shire Htation. and it is this fact alone
which enables the rapid extension of his
system ot storage. A wooden silo keeps
its contents with less loss than a stone
or cement one cliu'liv wcaupo of tho
penetration of air through mortar and
4'ement. A silo limit independent of
f the barn can be built for $1 per ton of
capacity, if the capacity is above seventy-five
tons. If built in the corner of
burn, the cost of labor and material
will be about half that sum. A silo 16x
lOx'-'o feet will hold UK) tons.
As stated in a bulletin of the, station
above mentioned, if built in the corner
of a barn, it will require forty pieces of
studding, 2x8, twenty-five feet long 680
feet; four pieces basement sills, 8x8,
seventeen feot long 300 feet ; boards for
inside wall, 3,500. The boards should
not be over seven inches wide, planed
on one side, and the inside course made
xo uruiiK juiium wita me ouisiue course.
Matching the boards is useless. Com
mon covering boards free from loose
knots are good enough, and in many
cases vne barn frame and studding can
be partly utilized and the above quan
tity of lumber be considerably reduced.
A cement bottom, though not "necessary,
Among the advantages enumerated for
the silo are tho following: More actual
food material can be produced from an
acre of corn than from any other of our
common farm crops. Three times as
ranch dry substance may be produced
from a given area of corn as from a like
area of grass. The objection sometimes
made t hat ensilage is too watery is met
with the statement that it is not as wa
tery as pasture grass in June.
L'he farmer who has a silo is about as
independent of the weather as a man
can be. Aside from heavy rains nothing
interrupts this kind of harvesting. Light
rain and showers, while making the
work disagreeable, do not stop it, and
when once properly in the silo all danger
of imperfect curing is past, ine early
date at which the land can be cleared
makes it possiblo to either seed down to
grass or winter grain a month before corn
in the shock would be dry enough to

Among its disadvantages it has been
found less hardy than clover and not so
easily established. If allowed to grow
too long, the frtaiks become hard and

on it except in dry regions. It requires
peculiar treatment to make good hay.
Its good qualities aro that, when once
well established, it lasts for years. It
withstands drought well, crows ranidlv

hay and is relished by all farm animals.

its growth and careful culture and curing

The young fellow's frank and manly

The best and most common mode to

generally hunt together in a cauoe, one
sitting in the stern paddling, the other
standing at the bow with a bull's-eye fast
ened to his head. They move on cau
tiously, the one in front coaching tho
course by slow motions of his hand. Hist!
a warning hand is upraised, the motion of
the paddle ceases, and tho cauoe glides on
almost imperceptibly, the slight ripple at
bow being the only sound heard. The
one with the riile, a -l-l caliber Winches
ter, slowly raises his weapon, peyrlug ex
pectantly forward, now to one side, then
another. Suddenly a gleam is seen
ahead like a coal of tiro shining
through the darkness, and the upraised
rillo belches forth a stream of fire. A con
fused thrashing and, perhaps, a deep bel
low follows; then all is still. If wounded
the 'gator makes oil to deep water, aud If
dead ho sinks at onco. The hiujters do
not stop for their game, unless in shallow
water and the 'gator is killed instantly,
but go ahead and search for fresh victims.
The next day they begin their lookout for
their game. When killed the saurians
sink at once, but the gases lu tho body
bring thein up in from six to ten hours.
Hundreds aro undoubtedly lost by being
wounded and dying in some inaccessible
creek or bayou, but tho pot hunters care
not. The skins aro carefully taken off
and the carcasses left for buzzards and
other scavengers, though tho teeth are
generally secured if there is time. St.

Professionals aro very clannish; they

Now, a man must bo acquainted not only
with the thieves themselves, but with tho
moflus operandi ot the different chisses ot
work. These fellows all havo their
specialties they are bank burglars, or
hotel men, or pickpockets, or forgers, or
belong to some one of the many distinct
classes of professional thieves. Some
havo rather limited specialties, like

scheme is to act as custom house collector,

custom house after tho victim has paid
the supposed charges on tho same. The
method cf procedure of a given class or.
thieves Is about the same In all cases;
variations are easily recognizable. Occa

turns up with something new, nut not
