there are many excellent government
lands, which would be at once settled

are also hundreds of settlers, in Ore

undertake to survey it.
Friends of silver are eomewhdt in
dignant that Senator Allison has re
fused to accept the portfolio of the
Treasury department. They claim
that he has an opportunity to restore
silver to its former standing in coin
age. An important proviso of the Okla
homa bill as passed by the house re
cently is one reciting that nothing in
the act organizing the territory shall
be construed to authorize any person

missioners shall have concluded an
agreement to that effect. It is also

The result of the Laguna de Tache

The management of seed potaks
is one of the important arts of the
potato grower. The chief point is to
prevent them from sprouting, and for
this purpose a low temperature as near
to the freezing as is possible, without
touching it, is desirable. Nearly ev
erywhere farmers find that the late
varieties of potatoes are more product
ive than the early ones. I? not this
p irtly due to the fact that early varie
ties have been injured by sprouting,
while late varieties are less liable to

Tbe following receipt has been tried

In breeding and feeding cattle the
first legitimate purpose is to make tbe
animal do the very best that it will.
The saving of food in the direction
of depriving the stock of all that it
will eat has no place in the calcul e
tion at all. It is true that in some
cases the animal will cat its bead off,
though that will occur only with scrub
stock. But in such cases the animal
ehould be got rid of. It does not de
stroy the rule that profitable dairying
demands abundant food and good
Probably meal will finish up a steer
better than ear corn, but for the bulk
of the feeding there are no trials to
which we can point that show in favor
of meal over whole corn. A step still s
further in the right direction is to feed
unhusked corn, fodder and all, to the!
cattle. Such innovations may appall T
many farmers, but what we are drill-!
ing toward is rot more complicated j
methods ol feeding, but big crops t j
feed, better stock to feed it to, and
simple, rational methods of getting
feed to the animals.
If the owner of a small farm brings
to bis work tbe bus-mess capacity and
good judgment which tbe large land
owner does, it is very evident that,
proportioned to the acres cultivated,
he will have tbe most money at the
end of the year. Hired help is not
only expensive, but at times very un
certain and unreliable, but a man's
own hands, with a heart in his work,
which seldom accompanies hired help,
are always available for every little de
tail on which success depends. Many
men will do more with teu acres and
get more out of, and from them, than
others v ill with a hundred. It re
quires as much labor, however, for the
ten as the hundred. It is intelligent
labor and good management that
count on a farm, hence it is that small
farms pay the best and that farmers
contiuually complain that there is no
money in farming. To our way of
thinking, and we are familiar with
every department of farm business,
and measurably so with the city,
there is no enterprise one can engage
in which offers better opportunities
for a healthful, independent and suc
cessful life than a moderate sized farm
under good management.
There are many who never take a
ramble in tbe woods in the winter sea
son. They seem to think that because
the trees, save the pines, hemlock?,
etc., are bare, and because tbe birds
have left for a warmer climate, there
is nothing to be seen in the woskIs in
winter. Those who bave learned
properly to use their eyes, will find
that the woods prevent enough of in
terest at all seasons to make a vi-it to
them profitable at any season. Lum
bermen, who work at felling trees, do
so iu the winter only, and can distin
guish trees with great accuracy, and
tell one kind of tree from another as
far off as they cm see them. They do
tins from the peculiar way in which
the tree branches, and the color and
markings of the bark. We have
found that these Bamo lumbermen, it
shown the leaves aud fljwers of the
trees with which they are so familiar
in winter, tail to recognize ihzm , in
deed many are surprised to learu that
forest trees bave Mowers. To be able
to recognize trees at all season, and
to name them accurately, whether
they have leaves or not, is a very use
ful sort of knowledge which every far
mer should acquire. The carpenter,
the cabinetmaker, and all other work
ers in wood, while they may not be
able to recognize the trees, can tell at
once, from a mere chip, the kind of
wood they are handling.

for the first time her boy shows that he
feels too big to be kissed! As they be

on their part is babyish; they are afraid

According to Engineering, some
experiments conducted at the Ports
mouth (Eng.) dockyard, with a view
to determining the resistance of metals
at different temperatures, indicate that
the strength of iron increases uni
formly up to 500 degrees F., while the
ductility diminishes up to about 300
degrees; it then inoreases until a some
what higher temperature is reached,
and then remains nearly constant up
to a temperature of nearly 500 degrees.

How is scrap iron utilized? In a city

an immense quantity of it is sold. But
what do the dealers do with it?

indicating that the latter was occupied

And the gentleman led the way from
the office into a yard in which was
piled tons upon tons of old iron and
steel. There were all sorts of utensils,
or pieces of them, from wagon springs
to engine boilers. Old axes, shovels,
hoes, cooking stoves, piles of stove
pipe, pots and kettles, and a thousand
and one other articles made up the
miscellaneous assortment

Castings that are too big to hartie in
the bulk are broken up by a big ma
chine called tbe 'drop,' and then the
whole is cut into convenient shape
for use in crucibles. For cutting there
are powerful machines which I will
show you."
A workman was seated oa a bench
with a big pile of wagon springs near
him. These he was feeding, one by
one, to a big machine which kept a
huge jaw working up and down, biting
off a piece of steel with each move
ment Near by was a larger machine
which must have been many tons in
weight The knife that did the cutting
was attached to and apparently a part
of a huge iron beam, which worked up
and down propelled by steam power.
This beam resembled in shape ihe
head and snout of a big black hog, and
this appearance was heightened by the
steady opening and shutting of the
ugly iron jaw. which was chewing np
the plates of what had once been a
strong engine boiler, into pieces three
or four inches square. When the iron
or steel has been cut or broken into
this shape it is ready for sale in lots of
several tons.
"Where do you get your material?"
From many sources. Some of it
comes from cities as distant as Mil-
kee and Detroit and some has been
picked up here at home. It comes to
is in boat-loads, ear-lo3ds and wagon-
loads. The rar men of the city gather
up iron on their rounds, and when the
junk dealers have accumulated several
tons o it they sell it to us. Then the
trading boats that ascend the Alleghany
analMonongahela bring us large quanti
ties. They take out glassware, tin
ware and other goods, which their
owners exchange with farmers and
others for old iron, and come back
loaded with that material. It comes
to us in every conceivable form from
every quarter." FUtsburjh Dispatch.
How a Detroit Merehant Treats Persons

"Do you have much trouble with
shop-lifters?"' asked a reporter of a
Detroit dry goods merchant
"Very little,' he answered. "I have
been in business a great many years
and have probably had as good a
chance to know as any one in De
troit e have had very little stolen
from us."
"How do you account for that?"
"In several ways. One is that we
do not leave our goods lying 'round at
loose ends or thrown promiscuously
upon the counter. Then if some one
is e-aught stealing a pair of gloves or a
yard of lace or a pocket-handkerchief.
we first assure ourselves of the fact
that it is a theft, and then ask for a
return of the goods and let the parties
off with a reprimand. I have no time
to attend police courts and can not
make myself see the necessity of ar
resting people for trivial offenses, 1
have faith enough in human nature to
believe that the parties themselves will
do better by me, with such treatment."

him in by the collar. 'I caught this

he asked sternly:
"What did you do that for?
The man shivered and shook and ex
pected to be sent to jail, but my part
ner just looked him over and said.
"Get out of this! Don't let me ever
hear of your stealing again."

who purloin fine goods which you
charge in your bills?"
"All nonsense. There are no such
people, or if there are, they do not
patronize me, AU this talk about
systematic stealing and shoplifting is
nonsense. There are professional shop

can be managed alike." But
after all, the worst harm, and a great

those who say: " There is no use in
