A cement floor Is iulte expensive, but If properly mnde will last for many years. By using a cheaper grade of ce ment than the Portland for the foun dation, the expense of tlio floor will bo much reduced. To mako the filling, take one part of cement, three parts of clean, sharp sand, nnd five parts of broken stone. Mix the sand and ce ment while dry. and mix thoroughly; then add sulllcient water to mako a paste. Work the mixture with a hoe until the sand particles are covered with the cement. Hprend this mixture on a bonrd platform, then spread the broken stones over It and mix all un til the stones nre completely covered with a coating of the cement. The sur fnco on which the cement Is to bo placod should lw graded with a slight slope toward the gutter, as shown In the Illustration, the plan calling for an arrangement where the cows stand rear to rear, the gutter being In the ml'ddle. When the surface Is properly graded, spread the mixture over It to tho cement rxoon. depth of at least four Inches, and com pact It thoroughly. This filling should be left until partially dried before the top coat Is given. The time for drying will depend somewhat on the weather. For the second coat, only the best grade of coment should be used, mixing one part of It dry with three parts of good sand, adding water until a stiff mortar Is obtained. This mixture should then be spread over the foundation mixture, nnd should be about nn Inch thick. The gutter should be cemented also, and be made with the slightly rounding center. The gutter should slope gradually to one end of the stable, where a vat should be placed to hold the liquid. Indianapolis News. llo nml r.nlltr. An exchange says that twenty years ago there were not twenty-five silos In America, and now there are at least a half-million. Wo will not vouch for the accuracy of their figures, but know that they Increase rapidly each year. To use an old phrase, they seem to "fill a long felt want." We are proud to think that we wrote In their favor more than twenty years ago, when many other agricultural writers were either con demning the Idea, or had nothing to say about them. The Ideas In regard to the variety of corn to raise and mode of growing have changed much In that time, and while tbeu the larger varie ties of Western com were grown and sown thickly to get as large a crop as possible to the acre, with stalks twelve to fifteen feet high, now the majority seem to favor the smaller varieties of field corn, like Longfellow or Compton, and planting at distances that will tend to a good growth of ears, which nro al lowed to become nearly matured. If not quite glazed over before they are cut. Some even let it become glazed, and then wet It as put into the silo, nnd claim to have good ensilage. American Cultivator. elf-Feeder for Cottle.

Ilorso breeders nud trainers nlmost entirely overlook or neglect ono of tho most vnlunblo fentures in n horse, nnd that Is fast walking In draft nud road horses, writes n correspondent In Prac tical Furmer. This seems never to bo bred for, nnd as to training for It, I, for one, have never seen It dono but oneo. If tho breeder will select n fast wnlklng mnro nnd stallion, tho colt will most likely ho a fust walker, but no attention Is now paid to this polut. A SELF-Fr.EDEH FOlt CATTLE.

The comfort of any living thing means a great deal, and If a hog Is not comfortable, he will not do his best. The real object in keeping hogs is to make a profit out of them, and the hog that will respond the best to good care and a variety of feed Is tho best hog to have, says the New York Farmer. There Is no profit In keeping hogs to see how much cold and heat they can stand, or to see how long they will live shut up In n small yard, fed on dry corn and filthy water. You can't starve a hog Into dollars. The nearer wo can come to supplying all the needs of our hogs, the more pay we will get for our labor. There cannot be a set of Iron rules laid down, governing the feed and care of a herd of hogs. We must use our thinking apparatus and keep tho hogs comfortable. A good breeder was asked, "How do you mix your swill?" He replied, "I mix It with brains." We can't make a success unless wo give our business our best thought. We must study the hog, his wants, nnd keep him so his coat Is sleek, with a nicely tipped ear and two curls In I1I3 tall, contented, happy and comforta ble. Honey in the Cellar. The average cellar In most places Is about the worst place that could bo chosen to keep honey, remarks an ex change. For extracted honey choose a dry place, for comb honey a place that 1$ dry nnd wnrm. A plnce that will not keep salt dry will not do for honey. It absorbs moisture as does salt and will become thin and in time may sour. Comb honey in a damp place will at tract moisture, and finally tho cells will become so full that the honey will ooze out through the capplngs and weep over the surface. Freezing will crack the comb. A good place to keep honey Is In tho warmest part of tho kitchen, perhaps on the upper shelf of the cupboard. Tylnc Up Kerry Hughes. Where the suow Is liable to drift and bank up over raspberry canes, break ing them down, It Is a good plan to group them In bunches and tie the tops of a dozen to twenty canes together very much as a shock of corn fodder Is tied, using n piece of wire. This keeps them erect, and the weight of tho snow will come ou the whole bunch rather than on each cane singly. They usually break so low as to bo useless.
