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

on a bonrd platform, then spread the
broken stones over It and mix all un
til the stones nre completely covered

When the surface Is properly graded,
spread the mixture over It to tho

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.

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

other used yellow ochre. We never

Comfort for the line.
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

The average cellar In most places Is
about the worst place that could bo

change. For extracted honey choose a
dry place, for comb honey a place that

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.

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.
To keep them from breaking Is the
thing to do.
